H O P E S TEAM P R E P A R E S F O R CROSS COUNTRY RUN AT M. A. C. The prospects for a good track season this year a r e unusually bright, Kinney, Van Lare, Luben and Van Zoeren form a nucleus for the team, while Van Wyke, Kik, Dok, Moser, Cllcqquennol, Ten Hove, Rlche, Ten Pas, Aikens and Wiersema are all promising men. On t h e t w e n t y - f o u r t h of October the five mile cross country run will be held at M. A. C. The team is working •hard every day, and ,ln sptte of t h e loss of Schutt, our strong man last year year, expects to m a k e a record when t h e show-down comes.


Hope. Its influence was felt in every slass and a m o n g all types of s t u dents. The first innovation it was guilty of Is still with us in the f o r m of F r e s h m a n rules and green caps. F r o m this s p r a n g up a secret o r g a n ization of upper classmen who were determined that these rules should bo enforced. The first smoke of battle was soon emerging f r o m tho windows of Old Van Vleck and Its origin traced to a s m u d g e of oiled rags whloh had been placed In t h e basement to smoke out the inhabitants of t h e then more or less disreputable dormitory. There followed in rapid succession events which ran the whole g a m u t from unpremedlated disturbances of chapel worship to carefully planned "stacking" of faculty rooms in Voorhees Hall. The fulfillment of a college generation's carelessness and loose t h i n k ing expressed itself in almost universal oheating in the classroom, in t e r m work, in tests, and examinations. Honor was at low premium. But the hour before the b r e a k i n g of a new day, though darkest, is never of long duration. The Y. M. C. A. cabinet introduced Into its p r o g r a m a regular weekly meeting which focused t h e attention and t h o u g h t of at least a dozen men, and soon many more, upon the problems of their miniature social order. . T h e public meetings of t h e Michigan State Sunday ScJiool convention, held in Carnegie Hall profoundly impressed t h o whole student body, A week of joint meetings of the Y, M- O, A. and Y. W. C. A. cabinets at six o'clock every morning was followed by tho a n n u a ) week o-f prayer. The effective m e s . pages of " D a d " BUlott delivered on four successive days proved to be the climax of influences which worked a great transformation. The f r u i t ol this rejuvenation of spirit, of social consciousness and m o r a l power, was the u n a n i m o u s determination that the cancer of cheating and dishonesty must be cut out. The presidents of the student council, of t h e Y. W^ C. A, and of the T. M. C .A. were appointed as a committee .to draw up a code. The present Honor Code Is t h e result tof t h a t effort with several modifications which have been t h e result of experience of succeeding generations. The work of t h e committee was done with great thoroughness. Copies of codes in practice t h r o u g h o u t the c o u n t r y were examined. The best elements of each were Incorpor-

That was the only time the a l a r m did sound like a song. Otherwise it arouses one from sweet d r e a m s like the tin horn of Cyrus calling t h e a r m y of Xenophon to breakfast. A half hour later. Bill Tuttle and I dragged ourselves over to t h e g a r a g e where our famous puddle j u m p e r was lodged. (It was, by t h e way an open air g a r a g e in Godfrey's yard.) Ths sun was shining brightly. Our "iron horse" glistened in t h e light of t h e sparkling sun and like the gleaming of t h e chapel light on skulls devoid of vegetation (of course no names m e n cloned h e r e ) . There Is nothing like the open Michigan air and early morning dew to keep a Ford in condition. Our horse was in t h e realm of t h e aesthetic. She had a w o n d e r f u l coat of paint, a spare tire, two head lights, rt spot, and a matchnox attached to helm. The seats were of t h e finest leather upholstery (ten years ago) and the roof gave one a fine view of t h e stars at night. This was t h e "iron horse" which was to take us over 1200 miles of rough roads, hack to tho United States and home. We decided to start t h e quadruped and began to turn her. W e cranked and c r a n k e d and then cranked some more. Finally we succeded in generating enough current to m a k e the horn toot. So f a r so good. We pushed t h e beast down the driveway out in front of Voorhees but we couldn't s t a r t it. We petted it, talked to It, watered It and Poole even of fered it some oats but it would not be tempted.

By this time the clock read 6:15. We needed h r e a k f a s t s o leaving our charger standing in f r o n t of Mrs. Durfee's boarding house, we m a d e a strategic advance upon the f a m o u s Duke's " B e a n e r y " where our friend P a t greeted us with a mop. A f t e r eating our b r e a k f a s t which consisted of henfruit, a cup of extract of beef, and one lead cake, we bid all good-bye and went back to our horse. We enlisted t h e services of a few bystanders and a f t e r pushing her for a few blocks she suddenly spit fire and without warning galloped off at her utmost speed, Bevelander In the saddle. H e succeeded In t a m i n g her however, for his long experience as a jockey gave him a decided advantage. The f o u r horsemen, Tuttle, Weler, Pool, and I climbed on t h e steed and a f t e r bidding farewell to f a i r Van Vleck, we galloped off. On t h e outskirts of t h e big town of Overisel our jockey's suit case became restless and in changing Its position It fell off. Accident n u m b e r one. A f t e r tying up t h e other luggage we started off again. Hamilton was passed a t 7:45. Allegan passed sometime later and then for Kalamazoo. It m u s t have been going on toward t h e tenth hour when we reac bed there. I can not tell you t h e exact time f o r I did not see t h e city. The other fellows pushed m i on the floor In the back because they were a f r a i d the keeper of t h e asylum might identify me and r e c a p t u r e me. Well they finally let m e back on t h e seat n e a r Battle Creek. W e hit a bad stretch of road here and Weler nearly lost his b r e a k f a s t due to sea-sickness. While passing thru Battle Creek t h e Kellogg Corn F l a k e people wanted us to stop but we didn't desire any corn flakes so on we rode. About t h r e e miles out of Post Toastles town we watered our "bronco and Pool took It under his care. Professor Van Zyl on his way to Ann Arbor w a s passed here,

It started with Soroslte President Van Vessem's " S h l p - a - H o y " and ended with a repast of "Ship Biscuit."

In council assembled, decided t h a t t h e old way of taking In new m e m b e r s nas neither suitable nor satisfactory to either t h e men or societies. This decision was based on t h e fact that t h e ancient method offered a chance for a society to elect new m e m b e r s at their first meeting, c o n s e . quently, the new s t u d e n t s were u n a b l e to visit all societies and t h e societies were robbed of t h e o p p o r t u n i t y to meet t h e new men, hence t h e c h a n c e f o r selfishness, dissatisfaction, and "all t h e other things t h a t flesh is heir to." In t h e new plan the societies h a v e agreed not to elect new m e m b e r s until a f t e r rendering t h e fifth regular program.

Let's get away from conceptions, think cause they know that their work is these childish things out for ourselves, and act like being watched and appreciated. Many students do not realize how rational beings. much t h e players on t h e team are sacrificing for them. The men do not go out for football simply for the fun of it. It is not exactly f u n to spend two hours a day In hard drill under a hot sun, drizzling rain or snow s t o r m ; it is not fun to have sore muscles, bruises and "charley horses". The men do not go out for football for the honor that is in It either, for, up to t h i s year at least, half of the student body has* not even known who wore on the first ieam. The men do not go out for football In order to pass away any time that is lying Idle on their hands. Many of the fellows carry stiff schedules, are working two and three hours outside, hold importa n t school offices and cannot really spare the time to play. They do not want to shirk their studies and duties any more than anyone else for they also have to look Into the future. And surely the men do not po out for football for any material gain. Many of t h e m could work outside those two hours a day and help defray their col lege expenses while the price of the sweater the player receives his first year (if he makes t h e team) is overbalanced by the cost of an athletic ticket, football shoes and other para p h e r n a l i a that he Is required to pur^ chase. Indeed, one migtot well ask how it is possible for Hope College to have a football team at all. It is simply because enough fellows have the real college spirit, want to see Hope put on the m a p in football as well as in other activities, and are willing to sacrifice in order that this be accomplished.

THE INQUISITIVE REPORTER T H E QUESTION Should a teacher be allowed to smilg. a p p e a r happy, and actually enjoy life? Prof. Irwin Lubbers, English Dept.— A teacher should be allowed to smile when asked to answer questions like the one above. i A teacher should be allowed to appear happy when no alternative is a f fixed. A teacher should be allowed to actually enjoy "Life" when there Is no danger of its pages corrupting his or her mind and morals or those of any minor who may be tempted by example to do likewise.

T h e Men's Glee Club Is still In Its Infancy, but a bright f u t u r e Is prophesied f o r It also.

On October 11, 1924, the Freshman Class "coagulated" to discuss the Honor code. Some, seemingly, had never before heard of the Honor Code, others had heard of it but had never read it. nor did they know the statua thereof. Consequently Mr. J a m e s Ten Brink, president of the class, read, from writ, t h e entire code as published in the Anchor. As it was necessary for the class to elect a member f r o m its number to Intercede in Its behalf # in council with members elected from the three remaining it did so promptly. Mr. Lambert Olgers was duly chosen to represent their Interests in said council.

The P r e p a r a t o r y D e p a r t m e n t boasts two organizations—the Mellphone Literary Society, sixty-seven years old, and t h e . P r e p Science Club. The Dramatic Club Is well-known Little time was lost in discussing for the splendid plays It produces. T h e the system.

It protested v e h e m e n t b sharpened intellect and readiness for those sections which hold a student action a stage for the rehearsals of report a n o t h e r should be by accident the ensemble scenes of life. or otherwise have seen that student "cribbing." It seems to them that if the Honor Code Is honorable the DEFEAT pledge—"I have neither given nor re« Most any person can be a "good celved information on this examinasport" in the face of victory, but it tion" is sufficient security. takes a man to be a "good s p o r t " when the gloomy facts of defeat s t a r e him in thfi face. • After the happy result of the HopeFerris football game we were so fortunate or u n f o r t u n a t e as to come in contact with several of Hope's opponents A Such statements as these were much in evidence: "We didn't get a square deal In the ofliciatlng." "The officials lacked a technical knowledge of t h e game." "Last year Hope men seemed real "good sports" but today they gave glaring evidence of poor sportsmanship." If these statements a r e t r u e (we hope they're not) we have a b u n d a n t reason to hang our heads in shame. As spectators of the g a m e we saw no evidence calling forth such a conversation. We r a t h e r contend that It i? an alibi for defeat. It is a most natural sequence of defeat that the poor loser will give various and divers reasons for that defeat. i t may have been that the other man out-played him In the game. It may have ben the " b r e a k s of the game," but always t h e r e crops out other reasons suoh as a r e evident in the statements above.


Do not get the idea, dear reader, that we are casting any reflection on tne sportsmanship of Hope's opponents. We a r e not! Undoubtedly every man of them Is a real sport. We are merely citing a speclllc incident to show a general tendency o t the man who c o m t s out on the "bottom of the pile." This tendency is not only t r u e in athletics, it is true in every phase of life, in business. In schol, in social woik, in the ministry, and In any other profession. Defeat c o m e s ' t o all, altho not in the same way to everyone. The business man losea^a large transaction that might have meant much to him; the student fails in one of his studies, the preacher meets with reverses. The thing to do' is not to sit down and bewail one's misfortune. It is not S> the thing to do" to broadcast ali'bds. True, sometimes factors for which we are not responsible are the cause of our downfall. But the thing to do. Is to "carry on." It takes courage to go on even in the face of defeat. Are you a good loser? When your fellow-man out-plays you in the game of life, when the " b r e a k s of the game" don't come your way, when you fall in striving for a certain objective, when you fall to score a knock-out, w.heit you fail to cross t h e plate, wthen you fail to cross your opponent's goal line—be a man! And remember it

Y. M. C. A. Stressing the fact tlvit, as stewards of our Lord Jesus Christ, it is our first duty to surrender our entire life to Him, Clarence Lubbers told us in well-chosen words what is our responsibility as Christian students towards our fellow men and to ourselves. He pointed out these three reasons why we should recognize the sovereignty of God and the stewardship of man as vital in our lives. First, because it is the plain teaching of.thc scriptures; secondly, because it helps us to think of God as a real and living personality, and thirdly, because it is the significant fact in the world of experience. As stewards, God has entrusted to each of us talents,—talents as varied as there a r e individuals—and it Is our trust to guard and increase those talents to the extent that we have enjoyed privileges from His Hand. As students, we should examine ourselves and try to give a good account of our stewardship. -oSI'S STATISTICS Dr. Dimnent is the only member the faculty listed in the last volume of "Who's Who in America."

(Continued f r o m Page 1) ated or altered to fit t h e situation in our school. The model on which the Hope Honor Code was built is, In broad outline, the code of t h e University bf West Virginia. The Code, as first submitted by the committee, provided only one penalty and that .was immediate expulsion. This recommendation was made on the basis of the psychological * law of habit which maintains t h a t the best way to break a habit is to make t h e possibility or probability of yielding to it as remote as possible. As a "student body we were determined that nobody should cheat and thought t h a t the strongest possible deterrent was the most desirable. After a long discussion the penalty was changed to suspension for one term a f t e r the first offense and expulsion for second offense. A few weeks a f t e r the code was put into o p e r a t i o n a test case arose which was effectively dealt with and the code achieved Its purpose for some years to come. The question arises. Why is the Honor Code not as successful now as it was in the early years of Its history?. It Is the old story of a king arising "who knew not Joseph." Tho Honor Code is t h e instrument by which a socially organized group of human ^beings have determined to punish those of their n u m b e r who are delinquent in honor. Whosoever fails to obey those clauses of the code which define the individual's responsibility with reference to punishing the offender Is as guilty of breaking the law as is the offender. It is innate In h u m a n nature to despise a tale-bearer. But ,a tale-bearer is one who carries outside of his group tajes regarding lapses {)f conduct such as all of u r a r e guilty of at times. To report to an honor committee which you have yourself established, the misconduct of one of your group, for the punishment of which you have established that committee, is not tale-bearing but the acme of honorable action. As soon as we can rise to that height the honor code will be successful. As long the delinquents are in the majority it will fail. The honor code Is our instrument. By it we have set up machinery which shall punish those who offend against our laws. We must enforce it or withdraw f r o m the field and allow ourselves to be supervised. Which shall it be?

Many New Members Join the Y. W. C. A. A


The Recognition Service of the i . W. C. A. is always one of the most impressive services of the year, for there we witness the new girls pledging each her own small flame of llfo to the great flame of Christ, the lighr of the world. The entire service was carried on by the dim glare of candle light with a background of soft music, which seemed to lend an atmosphere of reverent worship. From the expression on the faces of the new girls as they lit their small candles at the great candle at tho front, one could not keep back tho thought "let your light so shine before men, that others, see•ing your good works, may glorify your F a t h e r which is in Heaven" and a l s i the thought of t h e parable of the candle which is not to .be hidden under a bushel, but Is to be put out where the light will shine for those in the house.
