m a n y as the greatest organist of today,





concert Oct. 11, in Dtmnent MemorUP! HEAVE!—Freshman exert every bit of energy in preparation for their meeting with the sophomores at 4 p.m. today.

Frosh, Sophs Will Strain; Anticipate Old 'Heave-Ho' By George Arwady There are just two hours to zero. At 4 p.m. this afternoon will come the big showdown at the Black River. Hope's version of High Noon will pit two 18-member freshman and sophomore t e a m s against one another in a fight to the finish for an inanimate, non-offensive length of hemp. Known as the pull, this event is the culmination of two weeks of rueged practice by the t e a m s and enthusiastic demonstrations of support by the rest of the two classes. Class Pride at Stake The prize at stake is not the rope, but an intangible quality called class pride. The natural enmity of sophs and frosh will find an ideal release at the pull. No m a t t e r which t e a m wins the rope itself, both classes will profit f r o m the spirit and unity generated by the pull. As freshman coaches Ron Kronem e y e r . Brad Klouw and Rick F a i r , and sophomore coaches Larry De Vries, Pat E a m a n and Paul Hopper completed final p r e p a r a t i o n s for the pull, all indications pointed toward a long, grueling struggle. Both t e a m s a r e evenly matched for size and weight, averaging about 175 pounds a man. Coaches Agree Wh n head coaches Kronemeyer and De Vries were queried concerning their predictions for the pull, their answers were very similar. De Vries said that the e x t r a y e a r ' s experience might give the sophs an advantage, but joined Kronemeyer in the opinion t h a t in the final analysis the t e a m with the most spirit and desire would be victorious. Q

Both coaches commended their t e a m s for the great effort expended by each individual during the practice sessions. Kronemeyer commented that he believed this y e a r ' s pull would be one of the

longest in recent y e a r s due to the comparable sizes of the t e a m s and the great amount of spirit which each class has for its t e a m . Teams Finalized The m e m b e r s of the f r e s h m a n t e a m are: John Michel, Dave Westerhoff. Kent Candelora. Erwin Johnson, Rush Johnson, Paul Cuticchia. Charles Felix. Darryl Dmytriw, John Coffenberg. Dave Christensen. John Kallemyn, Dennis Plockm eyer. Lad McQueen. Rick Vandenburg. Tim Woodby. Dave A m m e r m a n . Tom M a r a t e a . Rick Maxwell. Mike O'Riordan and Bob Essink. The sophomore t e a m opposing this group a r e : Dale V a n d e r a a , Bill Mills. John Tysse. Gary R y p m a , Floyd Brady. John Visser. J i m Skivington.

ial Chapel at 8:15 p.m. Mr. Heiller will play the P r e l u d e and Fugue in E Minor by Bruhns, P a s s a m e z o by Scheldt, t h r e e Chorale Preludes from the "Orgelbuchlein" by Bach and the F a n t a s v and Fugue in D Minor by Max Heger. Mr. Heiller began to study theory and piano at an early age In his home city of Vienna, and wrote his first composition a t the age of twelve. After completing high school, he entered the A c a d e m y of Music in Vienna and w a s able to take the final e x a m s for organ

Heiller is a winner of the International Improvisation Contest, the "Staatlicher Foerderrungs p r e i s " for choir m u s i c and the Schottpreis.

Democratic Policy Debated About 300 students attended the American policy forum held in Dimnent Memorial Chapel Tuesday concerning our nation's involvement in Southeast Asia. Carl Oglesby, president of the Students for a Democratic Society, spoke against U.S. policy in the absence of Dr. Marshall D. Sahlins, associate professor at the University of Michigan, who had been slated to represent that viewpoint. Defending the position of the U.S. government w e r e Dale Pfeiffer and Phil Marcus, g r a d u a t e stu-

Dance is Climax This afternoon when these men start digging their pits the pull will begin. The morale girls will be urging their men on to superh u m a n efforts. The rope will b e straining under m o r e t h a n five tons of pressure. The decision is still up in the air and the victor is unknown. The only g u a r a n t e e is an exciting show this afternoon. On the night a f t e r the pull, the traditional pull d a n c e will be held in the Phelps dinning hall. At this event victors will c e l e b r a t e and losers will be consoled. Co-chairmen Toodie Finlay and Chris Miller announced a $.75 per person admission fee will be charged for the d a n c e lasting f r o m 8:30 till 12 p.m. F r e e r e f r e s h m e n t s and the Shaydes of Lynn b a n d a r e f e a t u r e d .

dents at Michigan State University, both of whom worked this past s u m m e r in Vietnam with U.S. prog r a m s for aid to the Vietnamese. Moderator J a c k Schrier. a Hope senior who studied last y e a r at the American University in Beruit, Lebanon, introduced the issues. He explained that the favorite a r g u m e n t s in defense of our policy are: That we must protect the rights of the Vietnamese and that without our aid they would be at the m e r c y of the communists, and that we must prevent Vietnam f r o m becoming a springboard for c o m m u n i s m . On the other hand, the opposition to U.S. foreign policy argues that we must let Vietnam decide her own f a t e in order to minimize our own involvement. Mr. Oglesby opened the f o r u m with the question, "What have we, as a nation, become if we do win the w a r ? " He proceeded to explain the m a n y ways in which our nation is losing its social conscience. He mentioned the unrequited d e a t h s of 25 civil rights workers in the South and the general lack of s y m p a t h y with the plight of minorities despite riots in Harlem and Watts. The U.S. is, in effect, a counterrevolutionary power interested in maintaining the status quo, cont r a r y to the principles upon which this nation was founded, Oglesby said. •Mr. Pfeiffer answered that as he saw it, U.S. intentions a r e honorable. He stated that although statistics show about 80 per cent of the South Vietnamese as favoring

c o m m u n i s m , the natives a r e nonpolitical and merely show a prefe r e n c e for the n a m e of the communist leader Ho Chi Minh, which literally m e a n s " t h e one who liberates." To pull out of Vietnam would allow the communists to engulf the country and leave the U.S. open to charges of hypocrisy, Mr. P f e i f f e r said. Mr. Oglesby reiterated that r a t h e r than build public works for the Vietnamese which do little good anyway because they c a n ' t be staffed, the U.S. should look to the c a n c e r which is consuming our own country. Mr. P f e i f f e r brought up the point that, the U.S. now has a responsibility to those dedicated South Vietnamese who are taking a stand against c o m m u n i s m , and that if we withdraw, they will be m a s s a c r e d as others w e r e in the northern part of that country. Mr. Oglesby then charged that the U.S. is actually opposing the National Liberation Front in North Vietnam which is trying to help t h e people. "Why must we always be a counter-revolutionary powe r ? " he asked. Mr. M a r c u s revealed that the National Liberation F r o n t is communist-oriented, and if it ever achieved power over the people, they would not be able to expre&s themselves freely. Mr. Pfeiffer then summarized the a f f i r m a t i v e position by saying, "We a r e only in Vietnam to help enable the people to live a f r e e life."

Religion Series*

Faith Healing Real for Christian Science Coed By Paul


A growing cry for involvment and c o m m i t m e n t is being raised in religious circles today. E v a n gelical Christianity h a s been called obsolete because its m e m b e r s , developing a nationalistic, m a t e r ialistic outlook, have divorced secular reality f r o m spiritual reality, and then ignored the latter. To w h a t e v e r degree the accusation is true, it is quite clear that the s a m e charge does not apply to Christian Scientists. Essentiallv, this group believes that God and His expression, man, a r e all that exists, ami that all else is an illusion, subject to d e c a y . Thus they hold t h a t the spirit or mind can overcome physiological d a m age and disease through " f a i t h healing," because the body is a spiritual f i g m e n t . To underscore the f a c t that religious hemogeneity is not t h e case on Hope's c a m p u s , and to c r e a t e a m o r e comprehensive picture of the student body, the anchor focuses on the Christian Science religion this week. Marsha Beebe. a sophomore e l e m e n t a r y education m a j o r from Richmond Heights, Ohio, answers candid questions on

what it's like to be a Christian Scientist at Hope. Question: Why did you decide to attend Hope? Answer: I c a m e to Hope in order to fulfill my d e s i r e to a t t e n d a liberal a r t s college with a religious a t m o s p h e r e conducive to spiritual as well as intellectual growth. This period in life s e e m s to be the time when you are easily led a w a y from your religious beliefs and your moral principles.

Students here do not s e e m to be narrow-minded or intolerant, but r a t h e r accept the beliefs of others. Q: I understand that Christian Science teaching does not forbid lis adherents to see a doctor, but that abstinence from such action

Q: Do you attend Hiristian Science readings here in Holland?

Q: Does your isolation from other Christian Scientists on campus present problems for you?

Q: Do you feel that being a Christian Scientist has any implications on your relations with other students? A: Because of the religious atmosphere and particularly t h e em-

I do not believe in t h e existence of a g e r m t h a t can cause disease. God c r e a t e d us as spiritual beings.

Then also came a multitude . . . bringing sick folks, and is a voluntary thing, in proportion to one's faith. What are your personal comments on this matter? A: Through faith and understand of God as the G r e a t Physician, we substitute faith healing for seeing a doctor. However, if our

Student Leadership Conference Explains Campus Organizations A Student Leadership Conference will be held Oct. 17 on c a m p u s to acquaint f r e s h m e n with the purpose and function of Hope organizations. Realizing that f r e s h m e n often consider college organizations for upper classmen only, a committee, led by Menno Kraai, decided to provide on opportunity for freshmen to meet organization leaders and to discuss what particular activities take p l a c e on Hope's campus. In addition, while it is recognized that adult leadership often s t e m s out of experience, said c h a i r m a n Kraai, it is also clear that freshmen often bury their talents, either having been frightened by books or excited by the new freedom college life offers. But college life is living a m o n g people, learning to work and play together, and finally growing through associations with them, he added. After the meetings there is a banquet where students will m e e t •informally with the leaders and FOR

facuJtS' m e m b e r s at their table. After the banquet. Rev. William Hi/legonds will a d d r e s s the group on the topic " P u r p o s e and Involve^ ment.* 4 F r e s h m e n will play a m a j o r role in the discussion groups, held from 2 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. During the afternoon each organization will hold three discussion groups and the participant m a y attend any three of which he feels he would like to be a part, said Kraai. The different groups will together represent the varied interests of each individual—from radio announcing, to religious life, to national and international govern-


ment, to creative writing. Because part of leadership is evaluation, the p r o g r a m ends with an evaluation of its accomplishments, said Kraai, He added, "The i m p o r t a n c e of this workshop cannot be stressed enough. T h e r e is no reason for apathy among college students when there are so m a n y things of which to be a part. Sharing in c a m p u s life is a way of getting the most out of college." Students interested in the workshop m a y obtain f u r t h e r information by contacting Kraai at the E m e r s o n i a n House.

Q: Has Hope affected your religious views in any way? A: Hope has in no way c h a n g e d m y religious beliefs, but it h a s m a d e m e realize m o r e clearly the similarities between my religion and the concept of the R e f o r m e d Church as p r e s e n t e d in chapel, in c h u r c h e s and in discussions with other students.

Q: Have you taken any biology courses at Hope? How do you view the things taught there about diseases and human physiology? A: I a m now taking zoology and next s e m e s t e r will be taking botany to complete my science req u i r e m e n t . I do not believe in the things taught in t h e s e courses, since Christian Scientists do not believe in disease and things existing in the m a t e r i a l world, but r a t h e r in the spiritual elements of existence.

A: I attend Sunday services at the First Church of Christ Scientist every week.

A: It doesn't disturb m e that 1 am isolated f r o m other Christian Scientists since many of my f r i e n d s hold m a n y of t h e s a m e beliefs as I do, so we have a common ground from which to discuss the theological problem which we share. However, I do regret that I know no one of my own age and of my faith with whom 1 can s h a r e the problems peculiar to my faith, such as illness.

faith is not great enough to overcome illness, going to a doctor is not ruled out. It gripes me w h e n some people i m m e d i a t e l y criticize Christian Science when they h a v e no idea w h a t our beliefs a r e in the a p p r o a c h to healing, which takes even a believer a great deal of time and study to u n d e r s t a n d . To use f a i t h healing requires an individual effort.

The Meaning of it All" — t h i s was the t h e m e of t h e l a r g e s t Geneva R e t r e a t that the Student Christian Assn. h a s sponsored. Over 230 students listened to Rev. Paul Fries' a d d r e s s on " T h e Church on T r i a l " F r i d a y evening at the R e t r e a t . Beginning with t h e early c h u r c h Rev. Fries pointed out t h a t the Church's trial has e n c o m p a s s e d almost two milleniums. Criticism of past generations h a s left the Church three alternatives which he s t a t e d : It can c a p i t u l a t e and b e c o m e rationalist, it can decide to do nothing, or it c a n become f u n d a m e n t a l i s t and r e t r e a t behind the monastic walls. Continuing, he e m p h a s i z e d , "If the Church is to b e c o m e a n y t h i n g in the world, it must b e c o m e involved with l i f e . " He stressed that the institutional church of today must be r e f o r m e d or it will discontinue to be an effective agent for sanctifving t h e world. "The goal of the Bible and G o d " Rev. F r i e s suggested, " i s salvation and sanctification. Sanctification is more important than salvation. Man and t h e church need an awake n i n g , " he concluded. S a t u r d a y m o r n i n g J a c k Harrison. speaking on the implications of " B e a r i n g the N a m e C h r i s t i a n , "


questioned the extent of involvement of t o d a y ' s Christian beyond religious walls. He s t a t e d that too often t h e walls of church m e m b e r ship p r e s e n t real b a r r i e r s to communication between m e n . S a t i s f a c t i o n with the noat, orderly religious system concerns man instead of the " k n o w l e d g e and celebration of what Christ is doing in t h e w o r l d . " E n g a g i n g discussions then followed with m a n y of the lay l e a d e r s from t h e Holland a r e a churches guiding individual groups. T h e a f t e r n o o n allowed for f r e e time volleyball, basketball, football, hiking, a movie, discussion, and s w i m m i n g by a few b r a v e souls. " L o v e — Without M a r r i a g e ?

F m p h a s i z i n g t h a t sex has no meaning without love or outside m a r r i a g e and a f a m i l y . Dr. Bertocci continued tc bring to t h e forefront many perplexing issues. " S e x , " he s t a t e d , " i s m e a n t to be a part of r . n r r i a g e , not to a p p e a s e one's a p p e t i t e .

Pope Paul at the UN

I ..

Editor's not^: Besides being an instructor in history at Hope, David Clark holds a B.D. degree and serves as curate of Grace Episcopal Church. Mr. Clark is also faculty advisor of the Higher Horizons program. By David Clark A c e r e m o n y developed by absolute m o n a r c h s was e n a c t e d in on anachronistic setting this week, when delegations to the United Nations took t u r n s in kissing the papal ring of Paul VI. Most d a y s the UN c h a m b e r s ring with cries of constitutional rights and minority grievances. Such cries a r e h e a r d with such r e g u l a r - . ity at the UN that the world h a s c o m e to treat most UN d e b a t e a* a formalized ritual with few sur prises and little effectiveness iis solving the divisive issues of out time. Pope P a u l ' s visit and a d d r e s s to the UN was even more ritual-like in its protocol and platitudes than the usual agenda at the UN. Except for becoming concrete about urging the admission of Red China to the UN the pope did not present a blueprint for resolving inter •national conflict But his function was not to do so. His function was to r e m i n d world public opinion that spiritual interests as well as national s t a t e interests should be r e p r e s e n t e d in international deliberation. His visit also served to remind m e m b e r s of the R o m a n Catholic Church that spiritual interests cannot be t r e a t ed in a v a c u u m a p a r t f r o m political matters. His visit to the UN should remind all Christians that the Church is in the world to t r a n s f o r m the world, not just to lead m e n through it as t h r o u g h a vallev of s u f f e r i n g . K h r u s c h e v ' s shoe-pounding act during his visit to the UN will probably be r e m e m b e r e d as the most exotic behavior t h e r e , but the m e m o r y of that only s e r v e s to point up the fact that Pope Paul did not h a v e to do anvthing b i z a r r e or unusual to c a p t u r e headlines and most TV time on the d a y of his visit. The down-to-earth personality of John XXIII partly- accounted for the intense public interest in him. But m e m o r y of his baby-kissing and f a m i l i a r ways serves to point up the fact that the p a p a c y h a s great effect on world public opinion

even when a kindly f a t h e r - f i g u r e is not filling that office. The a n a c h r o n i s m of the ringkissing h o m a g e being e n a c t e d at the UN s e r v e s to point up the fact that the p a p a c y has retained enormous international p r e s t i g e partly b e c a u s e the papacy f o r m a l l y rem a i n s an absolute m o n a r c h y .

It is obvious, though, to those who h a v e followed the d e b a t e s in Vatican Council 11, that the Rom a n Catholic Church is not a monolithic s t r u c t u r e solidly accepting a m o n a r c h i c s t r u c t u r e of church g o v e r n m e n t It should be of g r e a t m o m e n t to all interested in political science and sociology, as well in specifically religious affairs. to follow the c u r r e n t constitutional crisis with the R o m a n Catholic Church. To do so is to gain insight into how an effective international organization is able to retain g r e a t prestige and p o w e r through changes, c l i m a t e s of opinion and social o r g a n i z a t i o n . The d e m a n d for a constitutional reorganization is growing. But such a modern conciliar m o v e m e n t has not succeeded in d r a w i n g d i v e r s e groups within the church into the kind of coalition ,l v<t is a l w a y s n e c e s s a r y for ef fective political change.

It should be clear at this point that there is no clear-cut " l i b e r a l " group doing c o m b a t with a welldefined " c o n s e r v a t i v e " group. The sides c h a n g e on different issues. Just when "constitutionalists" seemed close to gaining enough episcopal votes to force c h a n g e , these votes have been split up again by Pope Paul m a k i n g a token g e s t u r e in creating an advisory Executive Council.

Democratic-minded churchmen in the eighteenth c e n t u r y d e m a n d ed constitutional limitations on papal authority. P r o t e s t a n t churches h a v e adapted their leadership s t r u c t u r e to changing • political theories, but the R o m a n Church has held to the concept of the pope a s a m o n a r c h .

Exciting s t r a t e g y can be observed in all of this. But those who o b s e r v e with u n p r e j u d i c e d and s y m p a t h e t i c interest should realize that the issues involved concern all Christians. The ability of a broken Christendom to witness in a broken world is a f u n d a m e n t al issue involved.

Semantics and Socialism By Bob Don^a

Consider the t e r m "socialism." To the American mind this often refers to the increasing activity of particulary the Federal government in many phases of American life. We often believe that the Scandianavian countries have socialism: socialized medicine, extensive welfare services and a prog r a m of so-called " c r a d l e to the grave security."

FROSH OFFICERS—Newly elected freshman officers hold their flrsl class meeting in unusual positions. From left: president, Norman Gibson; treasurer, Bonnie Miller; secretary, Gilda Davis; and vice

When this writer first used the term in the presence of a Swede. I was promptly told that the Scandinavians do not have "socialism, which is " G o v e r n m e n t ownership of the m e a n s of production." but ihat these countries are "social welfare states.' Of course, even if we accept these distinctions we nonetheless find limited socialism here: government ownership of most transportation and the mining industry for example. Rut a small amount of " s o c i a l i s m " prevails in practically every modern state ' TV A. local utilities in the U.S.', so one cannot say the the "Social D e m o c r a t s " run the country. "Social W e l f a r i s m , " however, is fully developed and enjoys considerable acceptance and popularity. In the countries which we call " c o m m u n i s t , " "socialism." as defined by my Swedish friend, does exist and those countries wear the tag proudly, e.g.. Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. In fact, the one sacred cow that exists in all these countries, not to be challenged by any critic of society, is

president, Marty Howell.

Gibson, Howell, Davis, Miller Elected to Lead Freslimen The frosh of '09 a r c marching ahead as the greatest class ever, according to its newly elected officers: President N o r m a n Gibson, vice president Martin Howell, secr e t a r y Gilde Davis and t r e a s u r e r Bonnie Miller. Gibson says, "We v ould like to t a k e up President Ca'vin VanderWerf's challenge by help : ng each other become somebody- in our college years, through athletics, a c a d e m i c s and the community." Miller, in making her plea to the frosh. s a y s , "It is most important that we have good communication between the officers and the class. All frosh a r e asked to leave suggestions in my mail box." Howell states, "Our class is young and if we can gain unity through the pull, we will become the biggest and

greatest class Hope has ever had. Some of our a i m s include Setting a college -mascot, a radio show on WTAS and possibly a column in the anchor." The freshmen officers have potential and initiative, as demonstrated by their backgrounds. President Gibson from La Grange. 111., has been active as a committee c h a i r m a n in class events. Howell, from Rochester, N.Y. was president of his youth group for t h r e e y e a r s and class officer. Davis, of Charlotte. N.C.. spent much of her e x t r a curricular time as United Church youth counselor. Miller, from Western Springs. HI., w a s student assembly representative and c h a i r m a n of her homecoming committee.

the ideological c o m m i t m e n t of tbe society or the internal economic system. This is not to contend that there is no relationship between these factors; it is simply to recognize that the foreign policy of a nation doesn't depend on ideology or economics alone. To illustrate: Yugoslavia pursues a neutral policy of positive peaceful co-exisance. China has i policy with clearly different objectives; yet both claim to have a "socialist" economic system and " M a r x i s t " ideology. All this is not to condemn the American conceptions of these t e r m s nor advocate the position of the "socialist" states in the dispute of definitions. The point is simply that many misunderstandin,'.s have their roots in basically different definitions of important terms. To understand terminology is to see the ideals by which our or another society lives. It is therefore important for us to realize these differences and seek to appreciate the reasoning which leads others to their formulation of definitions.

that they are socialist. ("Socialist social relations and the protection of the socialist system of society, for instance, is the first-listed and foremost principle of the new Yugoslav constitution.") Specific ideas of how " s o c i a l i s m " should perform differ from country to country, but the basic concept social ownership of the m e a n s of prodution r e m a i n s a firm underpinning of the entire s y s t e m .

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Many misconceptions which Americans have about foreign countries are the result of differing definitions of terms. One finds that the s a m e word may have radically different meanings, depending on which side on the Atlantic it is used.

O f f mid on the Campus

Socialism occupies in these countries the privileged position of the term " d e m o c r a c y " in ours. (Conceived as representative, not only direct, d e c o m c r a c y ) The Yugoslavs. for instance, describe their political system as socialist dem o c r a c y . " In this w r i t e r ' s opinion, the order of those two words indicates the respective importance of each ideal Yugoslav society today. In these countries, at least by the ruling groups in the society, " c o m m u n i s m " is thought of as the economic system described by Marx, toward which the country is gradually evolving. They do not consider themselves living in a " c o m m u n i s t country"—to them, that goal has not yet been reached.


Another verbal misunderstanding occurs with terminology used to describe foreign policy. There still exists on both sides of the cold u a r an inclination to use loaded ideological words to describe "im p e r i a l i s m " by the other side In post-war y e a r s the f e a r s of the USSR were expressed by a cliche ("Capitalist E n c i r c l e m e n t " ) using an economic t e r m . The aggression they feared, of course, was milita r y and political m o r e than economic. We replied by expressing f e a r s of the "International Communist Movement"—by which we m e a n t . Soviet or Chinese Imperialism, more than an ideological or economic system.

The Esso slogan in Swedish is "in med en tiger i t a r k e n " — " P u t a tiger in your t a n k . " . . . Someone has taken the liberty of painting quotation m a r k s around the "Demo c r a t i c " in Deutsch Demokratische Republik ( E a s t G e r m a n y ) infortion office smn in Stockholm . . . English i> spoken by m a n y people here, mostly in a delightful British way with excellent pronunciation . . . Most Stockholm police wore guns for several days after the shooting of four Danish officers in Copenhagen A popular clothing item is a surplus U.S. A r m y jacket which can be purchased q u u e • ho a ply. At a recent anti-U.S Vietnam demonstration here, many of the dem o n strato rs w e r e wearing—you guessed it— U.S. Army jackets.

P e r h a p s the best way out of this confusion is to describe the foreign policy of a country in t e r m s of foreign relations, not simply on

Asking for Money




It would seem to m e that Hope College could be doing a much better job of teaching its students to ask for money. 1 mean if we re going to get a "liberal a r t s " education, let's learn the liberal art. Look at Washington and you'll agree that it's the only way to get ahead. The big man down there asks for money better than anybody I ever h e a r d of and much of the reason we put him down there was related to that capability. Let m e list some figures. This m a n requested $1,465,000,000 for an anti-poverty program and c a m e out with $1,765,000,000. He wanted $260 nvllion for higher educat : on and they gave him $650 mPlion He said he could get by on S400 million for a r a e redevelopment but Congress rounded out the figure to $655 million. Now all this doesn't mean he's going to spend that much—Congress h a s been saying for y e a r s that no agency is required to exhaust its budget—but it is a good example of adeptness at asking for money. And t h a t ' s the kind of adeptness college-^students in the p a s t have been known to develop. Yet even some of the best of us here at Hope work regularly for ' a s little as $.80 to $.85 an hour. Albion's



Dick Shiels ploying students to cooperate. The least a . student can be paid today on the Albion c a m p u s is $1 an hour. This " h a s to b e " to comply with the Michigan minimum wage, stressed the college business manager. It works out that donm switchboard operators are paid from $1 to $1.25 an hour. Employees of the food service company receive the same. Teaching and lab assistants as well as proof-readers receive from $1.25 to $2 an hour. Other school employees classified merely as unskilled labor are paid f r o m $1 to $1.50. Suggestion to the Senate It would s e a m sensible to add at this point that possibly the Student Senate ought to consider asking for money. Maybe the Senate ought to ask some from the students without even offering any kind of evening-to-remember in return. Maybe we ought to become philanthropic and o f f e r only a challenge-

to - r e m e m b e r pay - or not.

- whether • you

This idea comes from Central Michigan University where for seven y e a r s the challenge to support a Korean orphanage has been met with student funds. The orphanage drive m e a n t life for thirty children in the beginning. The number has since grown to sevently. But to the student body of CMU the drive m e a n t $2,500 last year and will mean another $3,000 this fall. It has meant putting a down payment on a f a r m and then making annual payments; it has meant purchasing a truck and sending CARE tool-and-school kits regularly; it has m e a n t involvement in something and someone none of the students expect to meet. This kind of challenge met by Hope students could mean life to other people elsewhere but would also mean—to the Senate—learning to ask for money.

An Historical View

The Cultural Wasteland: A Self-imposed Tragedy By Barb Koirw ••Hope College students are bein ' forced to live in the midst of a cultural waste land!" How often have you heard this cry from a distraught student? How many times have you looked at a calendar of Hope's cultural events and felt as if nothing really substantial were being offered? Are you at all perplexed because the Park Theater will have no foreign film series this semester? 4

During registration week, Mortar Board presented the film "Citizen Kane." Attendance at this film was fewer than 150. Several times during the past few years, the m a n a g e m e n t of the P a r k Theater has cooperated to bring to our community s o m e of the finest films of m a n y countries. This semester no film series is scheduled; the response to past showings has indicated that continuation of the series would not prove feasible. Hope College does indeed offer a variety of cultural activities for students; weekly assemblies, musical events, the Fine Arts Festival, Opus, 'Mortar Board films a n i

Malcolm Cites Theater Plans For This Year The Little Theater has scheduled a m i n i m u m of four plays a s well as a series of one-act plays to be performed throughout the y e a r . Tryouts for the first hvo plays, which will be under the direction of Dr. Edward Savage, are already in progress. "Hippolytus" by Euripides and " T h e F a r c e of the Worthy- M a s t e r " by P i e r r e Pathelin •wil be presented on November 18-20. "Hippolytus" was described by J a m e s Malcolm, director of theater, as " a n established classic and one of the most important plays Euripides wrote." A tragedy, the play is the story of P h a e d r a and her love for her stepson Hipipolytus. Mr. "Malcolm said that "The F a r c e of the Worthy M a s t e r " is " a very, very early French rustic f a r c e about a man who, in trying to dupe someone else, ends up being duped himself." In February Henrik Ibsen's " M a s t e r Builder" will be staged. Mr. 'Malcolm said of the " M a s t e r Builder" that is was one of Ibsen's last plays and contains "obvious symbolism." He continued by saying that the play's exact interpretation is "open to discussion." The theater also plans on doini? "The F a n t a s t i k s " in April. Mr. Malcolm referred to "The Fant a s t i k s " as "one of the most inventive, whimsical musicals ever to have been produced in New York, The play has been running off Broadway for five y e a r s . " In addition to the previously mentioned plays, the theater plans on presenting several one act plays throughout the y e a r . The plays will be contempary in nature. The theater is under the direction of Mr. Malcolm and Robert Wegter.

theatrical productions are just a few examples. But still complaints are heard, as the Park film series illustrates most clearly. There are people op this c a m p u s who a r e vitally concerned about cultural and intellectual happenings; there are people who appear to bo concerned but who do nothing; and there a r e people who have no concern at all. Throughout this s e m e s t e r , the anchor will feature a n u m b e r of critiques and reviews of works and p e r f o r m a n c e s which various students and faculty m e m b e r s consides worthy of special note. It is fairly certain that many people who read these articles will go one step f u r t h e r and r e a d the book or sec the play or film which is being reviewed. But is is just as certain that many will not bother to investigate, and that included in this group will be those who complain of intellectual b a r r e n n e s s on this c a m p u s but who are not themselves willing to act or to contribute. The point is simple: this column will offer several opportunities for intellectual and cultural consideration. Like the foreign film series, the worth and success of these articles will depend upon the initiative and response of the reader. It is hoped that the contributions of this column will serve as a spring-board for discussion and intellectual growth. The anchor can only print the articles—what happens a f t e r that is up to you.

By Joyce PollHt Editor's note: The following article is the first of a series concerning the history of Hope College presented by the anchor in conjunction with the Centennial year celebration. From the land which produced R e m b r a n d t and William the Silent c a m e a people who sought the freedom of America, where they could express their Christian beliefs and teach their young. Said their leader, Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte. "The inception of Hope College lay in the earliest concept of the people." Their school was not a college in the beginning but served to prepare sons of the colonists to enter Rutgers College. New Jersey, and to go on to the seminary at NewBrunswick.

The General Synod of the Reformed Church b e c a m e interested in this new pioneer school and began a relationship which has lasted over one hundred years, giving their best minds and h e a r t s to her cause. Many men of 1851 viewed this pioneer school built in the wilderness of a foreign colony as a futile cause. In consideration of the sickness and seemingly over-whelming odds, it could have been; but the determination of h e r leaders proved almost unbelievable under adverse conditions.

During his stay until 1855, so earnest was he in his endeavor to see that students receive their education that he sometimes taught and directed the school from his sickbed. His health finally forced him to return to New York.

Phelps First President Van Vleck left because of failing health and d i e d at 37 y e a r s of age. Dr. Phelps b e c a m e the first principal of the Holland Academy in 1859. Under his leadership the Holland Academy w a s to become Hope College. At the time Dr. Phelps c a m e , it was a beautiful c a m p u s . T h a t year Rev. Van Raalte had enlarged the c a m p u s to sixteen acres. Van Vleck Hall, which m a d e the location of the school permanent, w a s then regarded as one of the most imposing structures in all of Western Michigan. Van Vleck Hall served as a combined home for Dr. Phelps, a dormitory for the students, the library, the chapel and the classrooms during this period. We thank God for these men, for their strength of mind and spirit, for their sacrificial lives, dedicated to a people of the future. Their faith had been in the workings of a school not yet established a s a college; their hope had been in God.

This new school was named the Holland Academy. Under the personal direction of Van Vleck, then only thirty y e a r s old. the first permanent building on the c a m p u s was designed and constructed by 1857. Rev.

Review of the News Edited

by J a c k Shrier

In the war in Vietnam, U.S. Marines swept the Viet Cong f r o m a South peninsula on the South China Sea coast. Forty Viet Cong were killed in the surprise operation The Americans suffered no casualties. South Vietnamese gove r n m e r t troops also clashed w:lh the Viet Cong 27.') miles northeast of Saigon and immediately reported that North Vietnamese r e g u ' a r troops were being used against them. Another plane was shot down over North Vietnam " p r e s u m a b l y " by surface to air missies. A Saigon firing squad executed five Vietnamese men convicted of m u r d e r , theft and far>e. They were not called V et Cong, so no retaliations by the National Liberation Front a r e expected. However. North Vietnam called them " p a t r o i t s " so no one is sure of what is being contemplated.

India and Pakistan a r e still squabbling. The latest charges a r e by India: that 500 Pakistani desert rangers violated the cease-fire line and m a d e an attack on India; by P a k i s t a n : that India attacked a Pakistani post with two battalions. Pakistan also notified the UN that India was about to a t t a c k in the Champ a r e a . An attack did o^cur, but just who initiated it is st : ll unknown. In most places, however, the now-12-day old cease-fire still holds. I n d o n e s i a experienced a "Sept. 30 movement" coup, led by Lt. Col. Untung, a known communist supporter, who attempted to overthrorw Sukarno before a CIA inspired coup did so, or so he said. The U.S. denied the charge.

A counter-coup, led by Army Maj. (Jen Suharto was even more successful and re-establi.>hed Sukarno as president. The situation is tense, with the a r m y s tank.-., armored c a r s and troops guarding J a k a r t a against the doubtful loyalty of the air force Sukarno has absolved the Air Force of all blame in the attempted coup. Suharto is not nearly so amiable and condemns the air force as the power behind the coup, fie wishes to avenge the death of five ranking a r m y officers, including the former a r m y chief of staff Vani who was executed during the coup. Suharto claims that the air force heads ordered the m u r d e r s . Britain suspended Aden's constitution and removed their constitutional privileges because of Aden's agitation for independence The result has been seve r a l days of violence and anarchy in that trouble-torn Arab Gulf state. In, the U.S. an Alabama jury of 12 white men found Thomas L. Coleman not guilty of manslaughter in the killing of Jonathan M. Daniels, an Episcopal s e m i n a r y student who was also a civil rights worker. Coleman cut him down with a shotgun blast, claiming Daniels attacked him with a knife. Several witnoss said that Daniels had no knife. Coleman also faces an assault and battery, c h a r g e in the wounding of a Chicago priest. Pope Paul spent 14 hours in the U.S. and during that time carried out an incredible schedule of appearances. Among them was a 32 minute speech to the UN where he beseeched, "No more war, war never again." He received a ovation after his address.

1 regret that an opportunity for an enlightening debate and discussion about a vital, pressing international problem during our precious college assembly period was wastefully converted to a session of bickering uselessly between two opposing vi"ws of the Vietnam dilemma. Neither side offered anything except attacks against the other, and all " e v i d e n c e " brought up was carefully, though rather obviously shaded to suit the uses of the party introducing it Neither side offered any idoas toward solving or changing the conditions involved in this d i l e m m a . one side merely attacked what in its view was wrong with the U.S. Government's policy toward Vietnam, and the other side simply tore down or criticized the first side's statements. This " d e b a t e " soon b e c a m e a heated argument wandering inconclusively from one partial fact to another. Instead of such a wasteful, intellectually empty and narrow use of the lime of Hope College students, could we have rather speake r s who come to us after having more intensively and more openmindedly studied the situation they wish to discuss, and objectively leveal to us their findings as bases for coming to our own conclusions a f t e r thoughtful study? Is it not possible that in this case m o r e complexities have determined the present situation than we know about 0 And, as for the Government's approach to this dilemma, m a y we take t h e attitude of that great unknown Indian sage who prayerfully pronounced these words: "'May the Great Spirit prevent m e from judging m y neighbor until I have walked in his moccasins for fourteen sunrises and sunsets." Maybe, with such a tolerant attitude of e m p a t h y , our d r e a m of world peace and harmony would be more nearly possible. Kenneth J . Weber

Rertocci As a philosopher, a theologian and an educator. Dr. Bertocci has brought to light m a n y of the problems facing each of us as human beings, and above all, as Chris tians. Dr. Bertocci has excellently presented his answers to such basic questions of life And, indeed, his answers serve well 4 he task of good "Christian Living." The enthusiastic m e s s a g e s of this genuinely concerned man have m a d e each of us stop to consider our own lives, especially in relation with other people Without a doubt, our campus should continue to benefit from people with contribution^ such as Dr. Rertocci has offered us this past week.

Kickers Bow to li of Illinois After Bending Maryknoll Constant attack, high tempers, and a tired defense were all influential in Ihe victory of the University of Illinois, Chicago branch, over Hope for the Dutchmen's second loss of the season. The score w a s 5-3. In the first quarter the U of I kicked a goal past goalie Brian BaPey, but within a minute P i e r r e Sende pushod one in on a pass from Al Griswold for Hope's first tally. The Illini scored again in the first period and the 2-2 equalizer was banged in by Alan " F o x " Griswold. The second q u a r t e r went scoreless, but the Illini again tallied in the third period and again Griswold scored, this time on a pass from J a i m e Zeas to tie the score at three all. Just no energy left was the cause of all the action which filled the fourth quarter. High t e m p e r s rose as center halfback Fred Schutmatt was excused from the g a m e by the official for yelling at an Illini opponent. A brief s c r a p broke out around the Hope goal when goalie J i m Knott received a push. Knott returned the compliment and other players were r e a d y to add their assistance.

Dutch Play Olivet Saturday At Home Field Coach Russ DeVette's Dutchman football squad will entertain the Comets of Olivet at home tomorrow afternoon at 2:00. The Dutch will try to keep their top post in the MIAA. by posting their second win. Last week, the Dutch c a m e from behind in a 15-7 win over the Adrian Bulldogs. The Comets will be trying to stop a losing effort, as they have lost a Saturday g a m e to the Albion Brtons. However, the Comets should be a real tough match, since they were pre s e a s o n ^ ranked as a title contender. They have shown their strength in pre-MJAA action, but h i v e needed that little extra effort to pull through the victories.. Having been beaten by Albion last week, and playing the Dutch, undefeated in MIAA action, the Comets should give the Dutch a real tough battle. The Dutch, on the other hand, w ll have some revenge thoughts also, as the Comets b e a t the big Dutch badly last y e a r . The big prob'em for Coach DeVette and company will be the offense. In their first three games, thev have scored a total of 22 points. Last week, the offense did not score till the fourth q u a r t e r , and the week before, the ice was not - broken till the third stanza, with the o f f e n d v p unit be : ng stalled ' 1/2 yard line in the 2nd quarter. The outlook for tomorrow's g a m e is real good, if the offense can c o m e through, and if the defense can play the s a m e type ball that they have exhibited in the past two weefcs.


Hope's defense w a s totally depleted when the Illini succeeded in putting two goals past goalie Knott with only five minutes left in the g a m e , yet t h r e e Hope players sat on the bench without seeing action. " F o x " Griswold played a brilliant offensive g a m e as did Dave Piet on the defense who played for the still injured D a v e Yntema. Last weekend Hope's soccer team won it's third g a m e of the season when they defeated (Maryknoll Seminary 2-1. In the second quarter P i e r r e Sende scored Hope's first with an assist from J a i m e Zeas. Hope's second goal c a m e in the final period when a shot by Sende was headed by a Maryknoll player into his own goal.

Hope hosts the Comets of Olivet at the Van Raalte Field course tomorrow morning at 11 a . m .

Roger Davidson recovered a Hope f u m b l e on the Dutch 31 yard line and five plays later fullback Harlis Chavis cracked o v e r from the t h r e e for the score. Adrian never got inside the Hope 20-yard line a f t e r that touchdown as Hope's defensive unit turned in one of its finest p e r f o r m a n c e s . Early in the fourth stanza the Dutch m a d e their first concerted drive. Taking over on the Adrian 41 a f t e r Foor again tried to run on fourth down and was stopped, the Dutch m a r c h e d in to score a f t e r 14 plays. Quarterback H a r l a n Hyink led the drive with a pair of completed passes, the second a 13 y a r d e r to Charlie Langeland on fourth down that gave the Dutch a first and goal on the Bulldog seven. Three plays moved the Dutch to the two y a r d stripe and on fourth down Keur barrelled his way to paydirt. Hyink went for the two point conversion and hit Keith Abel with a quickie to give the Dutch a lead they n e v e r lost. Adrian was forced to punt after receiving the kickoff and Hope took over on its own 46. Nine plays later Keur went into touch down land for the second time, this time from the one yard line. Hyink set up the touchdown with two fine passes, one to Abel for 14 yards and the o t h e r to B r u c e Menning for 24 yards. Adrian got down to the Hope 40 with a couple minutes r e m a i n i n g but Max Schipper recovered an Adrian fumble and t h e Hope offense killed the r e m a i n i n g time on the clock. Hope rolled up 201 y a r d s total

offense with Keur collecting 52 y a r d s in 14 carries. Hyink connected on five of 14 a c r i e l s for 57 y a r d s and four of the completions led directly to the touchdowns. Hope hosts the Comets of Olivet at Riverview P a r k tomorrow. The Dutch, who are now 2-1 overall and 1-0 in the MIAA, will be seeking their third consecutive win, while Olivet, who lost lo Kalamaoo 13-6 last week, will be looking for its first league win. The g a m e should prove to be quite a battle.
