Evening School Program

Enrollment, 1st Semester 1950-1951

Hope College is offering for the first time this year a program of college credit courses in order to fulfill the public demand for courses beyond those offered in the adult education program of the Holland Public Schools. This will be of special interest to high school graduates who have secured full time positions but who would like to begin work toward a college degree; college students who have been forced to withdraw from college but who would like to continue their college program; teachers in public and private schools who desire credit courses; and any other adults interested in an educational program at the college level. For all persons planning to take courses for college credit, the admission requirements are the same for the evening session as for the regular school year. All courses g r a n t credit which will be accepted Miss Eleanor M.

The closing date f o r the submission of manuscripts by all College Students is November fifth. Any s t u d e n t attending either junior or senior college is eligible to submit his verse.

De Paur Infantry Chorus To Open Concert Season The De P a u r I n f a n t r y Chorus, one of the most important professional choruses of the time, conducted by Leonard De P a u r and under the auspices of F. C. Coppicus and Shang of Columbia Artists Management, will be presented in Hope College Ohapel October 16. The chorus, composed of ex-GIs, was organized in 1942 by men of the 372nd I n f a n t r y Division stationed at Fort Dix, N. J . This first important musical aggregation to spring f r o m World W a r II is now making its third civilian concert tour of the country. Their program includes service songs of "World W a r II as well as contemporary classics, spiritual songs and those of different f a i t h s . During the war the chorus was set up as a morale unit to entertain American Men in the armed forces all over the world. They gave more than 2,000 concerts in the service, visiting every theatre of war during the course of their three years travels.

Leonard De Paur, distinguished conductor of the De Paur's Infantry Chorus, a familiar figure in motion pictures, operas, concerts and radio, was already known for his work as musical director of the Negro Theatre, part of the Federal JUNIORS Theatre Project in New York City Doris Adams, D e w e y Bakker, seven years before he enlisted in Betty Bardwell, Arlene Beekman, the Infantry and went to Camp Uptown as a private.

Address and Documentary



Faculty Attend MISL Meeting The speech faculty of Hope College including Mr. Lambert Ponstein, Mr. Donald Buteyn, Miss Helen Harton and Dr. William Schrier attended the annual fall meeting of Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League at Lansing on Friday, October 6. Among the decisions made at the meeting some of special interest were: 1) the naming of a central coordinating committee to aid local schools in their scheduling of debates before organizations s u c h a s luncheon clubs, g r a n g e organizations, etc.; 2) the decision to hold one large tournament f o r men and women, instead of two separate tournaments, and also to allow, at the discretion of individual s c h o o l s , teams to be composed of either men or women or both; 3) the decision to have one of the three rounds of debate in the state tournament to be a so-called cross-examination debate whereby the rebuttal period is replaced by teams of opposing s i d e s a s k i n g and answering p e r t i n e n t q u e s t i o n s . This is in part to stimulate public interest and to get at the heart of the question, to avoid "trick cases" and debating f o r the mere sake of a game element — "to see who wins."

eight years of service, four of them in Asia. The color pictures cover South Korea thoroughly, from the embattled American headquarters port of Pusan in the south to the country's northern boundary at the 38th Parallel. Col. Kellems is a professional photographer and speaker of long experience, and his comprehensive color film is acclaimed by critics as being sensationally brilliant. His recent expeditions into every part of South Korea and his personal acquaintanceship with President Syngman Rhee and other high-up officials, make his vivid eye-witness story both authentic and enlightening. There are shots of the approach to South Korea, by plane and ship from Japan, and of the spacious Pusan harbor and Naktong River. Col. Kellems presents his own spectacular aerial views of the hills and valleys where the GI's have recently been fighting. The capital city of Seoul, recently recaptured by U. S. troops, is covered thoroughly including the teeming streets, markets, City Hall, Capitol and other buildings, and President Syngman Rhee and his home. Strategic Kimpo Airfield is shown, and the We-jong-pu Valley down which the Red invasion poured, spearheaded by Russian tanks. Col. Kellems goes to remote villages, and to rural regions, to film the quaintly garbed South Korean peasants at work in shops and on the land. He pictures mountains and valleys, pagoda-like temples, strange customs and costumes. His color film story is unique and unduplicated by anyone else and it makes the whole world-important South Korean situation "come alive" on the screen. In civilian life. Col. Kellems is a noted explorer and professional photographer. He has commanded six expeditions to the Arctic and Alaska. He made seven official films f o r the W a r Department, Air Force and Navy. His personal film library bulges with 300,000 feet of color movies of far-off countries. Col. Kellem's lecture is open to all Hope students on presentation of activity card. Tickets for town's people will be one dollar, including tax, and they may be obtained f r o m any member of International Relations Club or f r o m the business office.

Pan-He! Plans Round Robin Tea On October 7, there will be a Round Robin Tea, to which all Sophomore girls, freshmen girls with one semester, plus summer school, and t r a n s f e r students are invited. All girls must have a " C " average. Two or three days prior to this, all sophomore girls and sorority members will wear name tags, which will enable these two groups t o b e c o m e b e t t e r acquainted. Ballots containing the names of all the girls eligible will be given to each member of each sorority who will indicate her preference by voting yes, no, or indifferent. Ballots will be counted by the president, vice-president and senior Pan-Hellenic Board representative of each sorority. Each sorority will be allowed to bid only as many girls as it needs to fill its quota. All bids will be turned over to the President of P a n - H e l l e n i c Board on the Wednesday following the bidding, and she in turn will deliver the bids.

New Books Added To College Library The much improved Hope College library has a large selection of new books to offer to interested readers. The Mentally III in America, by Albert Deutsch is of especial interest to psychology students. This book traces the t r e a t m e n t of the mentally ill f r o m imprisonment, h a n g i n g or slavery to modern institutional care. Written in a nontechnical slyle f o r the general reader, it is a revised and enlarged second edition, which contains a new chapter called "Psychiatry in World W a r II." The Decameron by G i o v a n n i Boccaccio, presents a collection ol Italian stories now five centuries old. Some of Boccaccio's stories may be f a m i l i a r to the literature student, a s his plots were borrowed by Chaucer, Shakespeare, Keats, and many other authors. Simon Bolivar, by Gerhard Masur, is the story of the writer, orator, a r t i s t , poet, soldier and political leader who did so much to give South American countries their independence. The author has lived f o u r t e e n years in Bolivar's world, and he presents an unbiased view of the "George Washington of South America." Some lighter reading material is included a m o n g the new books in The Man With the Golden Arm, a novel by Nelson Algren. This is the story of Frankie Machine, the dealer at a gambling joint, a story of lost and betrayed human beings, and it shows a tremendous insight into human nature. The Western World and Japan, by G. B. Sansom, gives an account of the influence which the western world has on J a p a n . It traces the cultural relations between Europ? and Asia f r o m the very beginning. Mr. Sansom, Director of the East Asia Institute at Columbia University questions whether Asiatic civilizations will submit to Western precepts of p o l i f c a l , social or religious life, even though they follow our economic pattern. Atoms of Thought, by George S a n t a y a n a , will be of great interest to the student of philosophy. It is an anthology of worthwhile thoughts, sayings and opinions of this g r e a t present day American philosopher.

You, as students in our great American Colleges and Universities, are preparing yourselves for lives of social usefulness and individual satisfactions. The education which you enjoy within these institutions of learning is possible only because we live in a free nation. Our citizenship in a free society is our most precious and priceless heritage. These are critical days for democracy and the free world. Communism has engulfed a third of the world, and is bent on still further aggression. The struggle now going on between the f ree nations of the world and international Communism is essentially a conflict of ideas. The United Stales is making a mass bid for the world to go the way of democracy and individual freedom. Soviet Russia is making a bid for world totalitarianism — a bid which rests in large part upon complete and ruthless misrepresentation of American ideals and aims. As students of history, literature, political, physical and social sciences, you know that what men believe to be true has been as important as the truth itself in determining human events. If we are ever to achieve a secure und lasting peace, the other peoples of the world must know the truth. They must understand our ideals of freedom and friendship for all men an.l all nations. The Ciusade for Freedom offers eveiy Ameiican an opportunity to play a part in a "great campaign of truth" to win the war of ideas. The Crusade provides an immediate and practical way of demonstrating our true intentions to the world. It is "a spiritual airlift'1 designed to give comfoit and courage to the 80 million people now living in Eastern Europe who keep alive in their hearts the hope of freedom and selfgovernment. With its symbolic Wo. Id Freedom Bell, it proclaims our inherent belief in man's dignity ar.d right to freedom; it amwunces our determination to resist any aggression upon that freedom anywhere on earth; it declares our national unity and dedication to world peace with freedom. Working together in the Freedom Crusade, we can help to put the free world on the offensive. By signing the Freedom Scroll with its tS9ISSSSS&8SSSSSSSS»SSSS& declaration of world freedom, you, as an individual, place yourself on record in the roll-call of democracy — a roll-call that one day must extend around the world. I urge your participation in the Crusade and sincerely hope that you will exert your leadership to help make it a great historic effort of free peoples. Lucius D. Clay, Chairman O CRUSADE FOR FREEDOM

If we were to take an actual count from the membership records, we would probably all be quite surprised to know that less than half of the student body plays an active part in the Y organizations. We may well wonder why this is so. Hope College was founded as a Christian College upon Christian beliefs and with a strong Christian faith. Isn't it strange, therefore, that more students don't lend their support to these two associations whose aim it is to direct and administer the program of religious activities of the student body? Let us consider just for a moment why it is that there is not more student interest. Surely it couldn't be that Y takes up too much of your study time. Many there are who spend that hour in fooling around at the dorm. The Y meetings can serve as a pleasant diversion from your studies and at the same time offer you a wonderful hour of fellowship and worship with your fellow students. Did you mention that the programs at Y were all routine and therefore very dull and u n i n t e r e s t i n g ? Well, fellow student, be hereby enlightened. The programs are planned with student interest in mind. The type of program presented each week is varied as much as possible with much thought given to its devotional and inspirational value. We have heard informal talks by returning missionaries, have enjoyed special musicals, have participated in stimulating open discussions, and have seen some good thought provocating movies. Have you often thought, "What's in it for me?" Perhaps there are many who have been benefited by the Y but are unaware t h a t it was the work of the Y. Was your baggage picked up at the train depot and delivered to your dorm ? The Y at work. Did you attend the beach party last month for new students and Freshmen? T h a Y at work. Have you been roller skating over at Carnegie gym? The work of the Y. Did you receive your little calendar of events in the form of the Hope Hi-Lites? A publication of the Y. Did you new girls have a Big Sister to show you around when you arrived on campus? A project of the Y. Do you remember our annual Mission Drive and Religious Emphasis Week? These too are sponsored by the Y. Let this serve only as an introduction to our Y organizations. Why not come out this next Tuesday night and see for yourself? The Y is a big part of YOU. Why don't you become a part of Y? With your support we can really live up to our motto to "Make Christ King of this Campus." See you at Y! ! I J. B.

e&888aSS8@SSSS&888S8e9S& Well, here we go again. Took the lid off the ole Music Box f o r another year yesterday, wound it up, and this is the tune it played. J u s t as a prelude, we'd like to say "Hello" to our two new music profs., Mr. Druckenmiller and Mr. Kooiker. We hope you'll like our campus as much as we do and wish you luck in your work with us. Now f o r an introductory tune f o r all the new students and faculty and to re-acquaint ourselves with all our old friends. This is the corner where anything musical can happen, f r o m a small tootle on a piccolo to a bull-blown blast on a cornet or bugle; f r o m the highpitched quiberings of a violin to the deepest groan of the bass. Our


periences, gathered f r o m questions and public o r g a n s of general information during this period have led me to conclude t h a t most of our A m e r i c a n friends, generally speaking, know too little or next to nothing about present-day A f r i ca and Africans. I sometimes become amazed and even indignant at the ignorance. Rut now, a f t e r a careful study of the situation, I have taken a different attitude as I have begun to realize the cause for such ignorance of the true situation. The point is, for one reason or the other, all available chief sources of information seem to have entered into a conspiracy a g a i n s t Africa. The subject is seldom t a u g h t objectively in American schools and colleges; movie companies create distortions and over-exaggerations of the weaknesses of the peoples and territories of the second largest and very rich continent in the world; the press portrays 18th century A f r i c a ; preachers see nothing but " s a v a g e s and infidels"; the radio is silent but when it speaks it only confirms the impressions a l r e a d y "cooked up". It is t h e r e f o r e incumbent upon the African ambassadors of goodwill and mutual understanding to show those who want to know more closely and in reality the f a c t s about this fascinating and p o t e n t i a l l y powerful continent and peoples t h a t have to be reckoned with now and much more so in the f u t u r e . Since I was born and raised in one of the biggest African territories, I feel the need to pass on some of my knowledge of "Brightest A f r i c a " which would perhaps be of interest to your readers. Sincerely, Fabunmi

Yes, as promised a t last spring's

The Arcadians held their first literary meeting of the new semester in Van Raalte Lounge on the evening of September 29. A f t e r name t a g s had been pinned on the Arcadians and their honored guests, President Bill Hoekenga called the meeting to order. A f t e r Keith De J o n g had led us in devotions. Secr e t a r y H. Parsons called the roll. Then our honored guests were introduced by their respective hosts. Gene Bont led the g r o u p in some enthusiastic singing which reached a climax with Doug Monroe's spirited version of "Vive la Compagnie," using "Vive la F a b u n m i " in place of the regular chorus in honor of our brother f r o m Nigeria, who blushed becomingly. T h e humor paper was given very skillfully by Norm De Wolfe. I t consisted of sketches on college life pilfered f r o m Max Schulman's Bare Foot Boy With Cheek. F o r our serious paper, Roy Adelberg showed us colored slides of his honeymoon trip to Florida. The pictures of flowers and of Mrs. Adelberg came in for much appreciative and favorable comment. Following the meeting, the Arcadians became acquainted with their guests over convivial cokes, ice cream, and doughnuts. On October 5, t h e Arcadians again met their guests in luxurious Van Raalte Lounge. A f t e r Bill Hoekenga had called the meeting to order. Jack Hascup opened with devotions. An introduction of our guests followed. Gene Bont then led us through a vigorous exercising of our vocal chords. For our serious paper, we were privileed to have Mr. S. H. Houtman, superintendant of mails a t the Holland Post Office, address us. His very informative speech relieved much of our ignorance about the difficulties of the Post Office. When Mr. Houtman left us, Mr. Hoekenga made some announcements, among which w a s the offering of a f r e e candy bar to the person finding Mr. Arwe's "Hadacol." The "Hadacol" was later found a m o n g the props f o r Don Hoffman's annual magic show, which was next presented as our humor paper. Mr. Hoffman has had t h e genius to come up with a few new tricks to offset the effects of the same o Id jokes, as Mr. Arwe and Mr. Hascup will testify, the f o r m e r with hatchet in hand. Following the magic show, the Arcadians and their guest relaxed and struck up acquaintances over cokes, cookies, and doughnuts.

KNICKERBOCKER Welcome all new students of the campus! The Knickerbocker Society extends a helping hand to the f r e s h m e n and t r a n s f e r students. This year the Knicks, like the other societies, has a home of its own. The big gray house located on campus at Columbia Avenue opens its doors to everyone. The Knicks have already begun their activities of the year. We have enjoyed many social hours kletzing in the t r u e Knickerbocker fashion — coffee and donuts. We p r e s e n t e d "the most beautiful women in the world" with the first of many serenades. However, the best of the year is yet to come. There a r e m a n y activities planned f o r the fall season besides meetings — hayrides, p a r ties, and kletzes. The society will be guided through these active days and nights by the very capable officers. Ken Smouse is t h e president. He is assisted by Don F a i r child, vice-president; Howard Newton, secretary; and Dave Hansen, treasurer. ... P e r h a p s the most i m p o r t a n t step we have taken t h i s y e a r is t h e move by the unanimous vote of the f r a t e r n i t y to modify t h e informal initiation. This, we believe, is a step which all the f r a t e r n i t i e s will follow. We feel t h a t the old methods employed in our initiations were of little benefit and we plan to give our pledges- an initiation which will benefit the pledges, t h e f r a t e r n i t y , and t h e campus.

Soon the sounds of the audience were reduced to an absolute minimum so that each word and action of Otte might be fully scrutinized. By means of actual experimentation.

This is Roes's first season of Cross-Country competition. Prior to this fall, his only running experience at college was during the track season when he competed at the 2 mile distance. Tripp is in his second season of varsity competition. The third, fourth, and fifth positions for Hope were taken by Collins Ottapobie, Neil Van Heeste and Roger Knoph. All are veterans of at least two seasons of competition. Unfortunately neither Ottapobie or Van Heeste were in top shape.
