The recent f a c u l t y decision to do a w a y (not in the Nazi sense) with queens det r a c t s from the color of the spring affair. May Day becomes an event of secondary importance. F r o m a practical standpoint the

faculty decision is also deplorable, in my estimation.

Both men and

women's sports have received wide publicity in local and nearby lewspapers.

The m a j o r e m p h a s i s has

always been on the crowning and attendant

ceremonies.

If

The Tattler

this is

'ost thp sport p r o g r a m will simply be an intramural a f f a i r and hardly worthy of more t h a n local a t t e n tion. Although we cannot e s t i m a t e the benefit of publicity to the college, we do know that this is a serious loss of prestige f o r our school. The reason given for the faculty ruling, namely t h a t is causes hard feelings is probably legitimate. I believe t h a t if t h e queen were elected by student vote f r o m a slate of eligible candidates submitted by the faculty, this objection would be removed. The decision m a d e is one of retrogression and I believe it should be reconsidered. J . W.

As I See It It is the Question " W h a t A r e we Fighting For?" By J e a n n e Horton Within three y e a r s public opinion in the U n i t e d S t a t e s has changed f r o m a position of neutrality to open s u p p o r t for the allied cause. From maintenance of a neutrality law, which made no distinction between a g r e s s o r and victim, public opinion h a s moved to overwhelming favor of a LendLease Act providing seven billion dollars worth of "'material to the Allies. The desire on the p a r t of the public to d e f e a t the Axis powers is indicated by the Gallup Poll in which fifty-five per cent of the people are now willing t h a t the American navy convoy goods to Britain, in spite of the fact t h a t they know fully well t h a t convoys mean shooting and shooting means war. In the s a m e poll sixty-one per cent f a v o r the occupation of Iceland, and t h r e e - f o u r t h s of the people would go to war, if it were necessary, to defeat Hitler. 1 believe t h a t this change in public opinion has resulted from an increasing realization on the part of the American people of the m e a n i n g of the present world conflict to our own existence. Ten y e a r s ago, m a n y people scoffed at the idea of " m a k i n g the world s a f e for democracy." But now democracy has a ga i n become something worth fighting for and preserving. The conviction has become evident t h a t the world cannot live half t o t a l i t a r i a n and half democratic. Democracy is fundamental to the American way of life, so much so that, to imperil it means to e n d a n g e r American security. According to Edouard Benes, exp r e m i e r of Czechoslovakia, the answer to the much-discussed question, " W h a t Are We F i g h t i n g F o r ? " , resolves itself into four f u n d a m e n t a l considerations: to prevent continental E u r o p e and Great Britain f r o m being dominated by

Nazi G e r m a n y ; to prevent Hitler from extending such domination to t h e western hemisphere; to liberate f r o m their present oppression Holland, B e l g i u m , F r a n c e , Greece, Yugoslavia, and Italy, all of which have been s u b j u g a t e d by r u t h l e s s and barbaric d i c t a t o r s h i p ; and finally, to preserve the democratic and Christian concept of the dignity and worth of individual man. The basic principles implanted in the modern world a f t e r the w a r of 1914-1!)18 and imbedded in the League of Nations, h a v e been r u t h lessly and dishonorably t r a m p l e d under foot by Nazi theories and practices. First, the citizen's human and individual personality, his freedom of thought, belief and religion, and his adherence to national l a n g u a g e and cultural ties hav'e been completely denied by the Nazi regime. In t h e i r place is a system of mass enslavement and oppression. The divine Christian concept of the value and t r i u m p h of t r u t h , honor, and justice has been abandoned for a terrible, unheard of phenomenon of declaring lies, deception, crime and t r e a c h e r y to be the official ethics of a whole s t a t e . These political principles, the most immoral t h a t the world has ever known, a s y s t e m t h a t h a s no c o u n t e r p a r t in history, would become the so-called " N e w O r d e r , " to bo established in Europe in the event of a German victory. These then are the reasons f o r the c h a n g e in American public opinion — the reasons why we a r e at w a r : — to uphold the freedom of man and to preserve the security of nations.

Dear Coach:

And this next highlight I have orders to write long! It's because it's new and progressive — and it's sponsored by WAA. It's a class in g y m n a s i u m teaching — theory, advising athletics, and administering first aid. It's strictly for junior and senior f e m m e s , and meets for the first time today at three. (In case you're practiceteaching this semester, — note: it'll be available next semester, too.) J a c k ' s teaching it, and announces T H A T No recommendation as a gym instructor will be given to any girl who h a s n ' t taken the course, and no credit hours will be given for it.

Oh, yes! (iirls' s p o r t s I L e m m e ;ee . . . Two highl i g h t s of t h e . v e e k : first, the MIAA Play Day )f last S a t u r d a y , and second, the WAA sponsored gym methods class under Jack Schouten.

No team can be called g r e a t unless it has the ability to l i f t its g a m e to the highest pitch for the crucial games. Coach H i n g a ' s men passed this test with flying colors a s they not only stopped a vicious Alma team but actually pushed them over the various p a r t s of t h e field. Repeat p e r f o r m a n c e s will lead this columnist to bestow t h e highest possible compliment to the t e a m ; t h a t of being called "GREAT." Celebrity will come to Holland F r i d a y in the person of " P o t s y " Clark, nationally known coach of Grand Rapids U.'s Lancers. A m o n g other things, he'll b r i n g with him a team whose f o r w a r d wall a v e r a g e s 190 lbs. and who f o r the first time t h i s year will have the services of their s t a r little q u a r t e r b a c k , a guy n a m e d Barrows. Injured e a r l y in the Alma g a m e , he should prove to be the s p a r k of the t e a m . In other words, Capt. T a p p a n and Co. a r e in for a s t r e n u o u s w o r k out, come F r i d a y night. Moreover, unless T a p p a n ' s cohorts keep t h e i r noses out of other people's business, Mr. Clark might travel home with a victory safely tucked away in his hip pocket. No f e w e r than t h r e e Hope footballers, Hakken, Higgs, and Rothi have suffered a b r e a k i n g of that which smells. Nosey people on Hope's c a m p u s ? I never would have thunk it! Besides enjoying a thrilling ball g a m e F r i d a y night, the crowd will also get a big kick out of Clark's sideshow. Reason: " P o t s y " has an eccentric habit of s t a m p i n g up and down the sidelines between trips to the w a t e r bucket! Hope's brilliant play against Alma has led to much speculation. F o r i n s t a n c e : One doesn't have to s t r e t c h his imagination too much to see a tie for the football championship, with Hope involved. Then, a first or second in basketball, a strong second in tennis, at least a show in track and golf, and into view pops the All-MIAA S p o r t s t r o p h y ! Well! "I can dream can't I ? "
