Hope Students Welcome Will Dedicate Holland Library Around Christmas Holidays by John Bos The staff at the Holland Public Library hopes that the new Herrick Public Library, donated by Mr. Ray W. Herrick, will be ready for dedication by Christmas time. Finishing plans are underway f o r the interior decorating, and the landscaping plans will be ready in one month. The new library, one of Holland's g r e a t e s t needs and dreams-come-true, will have adequate facilities to care for the people of Holland at all age levels. There will be three main sections in the library; the children's section, the young adult section, and the adult section. These sections will be separated from the rest of the library by decorated room dividers or low bookcases. In discussing the matter, Mrs. Hazel Hayes, City Librarian, said: "I hope we will be able to have bookcases instead of room dividers, because people who don't work in a library don't realize how much room is needed f o r books." There will be an over-all seating capacity f o r 175 persons. There will be study space f o r 75 adults in the adult section, plus the various lounges on the main floor and several spaces upstairs. There will also be a 150-capacity M e e t i n g Room which will be used f o r the weekly "Story Hour," and also f o r

Civic organizations which desire to use it. The library expects to have about 65,000 volumes at its opening. "With the increase in our city's population, we really should have 80,000 volumes," stated Mrs. Hayes. Several organizations have given generous g i f t s to the library. The J u n i o r W e l f a r e League has given $5000 towards f u r n i s h i n g the children's section; the J.C.'s have given $2500 f o r books; and the Exchange Club has donated a large mural to beautify the interior. Hope College students have used the city library quite extensively during the years, especially in the magazine department, since Hope College's library does not permit magazines to circulate. "We will continue to welcome Hope students with open a r m s and help in any way t h a t we can to supplement the services of the college library," said Mrs. Hayes. By the way, prospective summer students, the new library will be 100% air-conditioned.

Saturday is perhaps the busiest day of the weekend. The 9:00-10:30 Academic section meetings will deal with f r o n t i e r s in Science and Technology, the Racial Barriers, and the Literary Frontiers. At 10:30 the parade of f r a t e r n i t y and sorority floats, handled by Ron Beyer, will progress down the main streets of Holland, judged by Student Council officers f r o m Kalamazoo. At noon, alumni members of the " H " Club will lunch a t Durfee Hall while Mrs. Lubbers e n t e r t a i n s the out-of-town wives at luncheon. During the h a l f t i m e of the afternoon Hope-Kalamazoo football game, the winners of the float and dorm decorations will be announced. Dan Ritsema will introduce the Men's Choir and the Band. The Queen will be presented with her court. Open house in all dorms will follow the game. Lorraine Hellenga is in charge of the Alcor Alumnae tea which will be served at Gilmore Cottage at this time. From 5:30-7:00 the Juliana room will be open f o r the Alumni Buffet dinner. Phi Alpha Theta, the history f r a t e r n i t y , will celebrate its anniversary with a dinner.

Play Capek's play "R.U.R." will be presented by Palette and Masque a t 7:30. Students playing the lead roles in this study of "advanced civilization" are Rod Zegers and Mary Fryling. Marge Kempers and Dave Meyer are co-chairmen f o r the Homecoming Ball to be held in F a n t a s y Land, otherwise known as the Civic Center, a t 8:30. Serving as the Queen's orchestra are the Aristocrats. Homecoming will close on Sunday afternoon with a Vespers service in Dimnent Memorial Chapel, planned by Dean Nederveld.

Women Prexy's Named For Many

New Cottages

As the school season gets under way, campus groups select their leaders and begin to organize f o r the coming year. Following this precedent, last week the various women's residences elected their house councils f o r 1959-1960. Because a house council meets regularly and takes up all problems concerned with its own residence, the girls elected a r e necessarily those who possess "outstanding leadership ability." The officers' jobs, f a r f r o m being only nominal, require both time and effort. In the largest dorm, Durfee Hall, Lorraine Hellenga w a s elected president of the house council. Van Vleck chose Ellen Frink, and Voorhees Hall selected Priscilla Wubbles as its head. Joyce Tysen is the new president of Columbia Hall; F a i r banks will be presided over by Patricia Kooiman; and Sally Ewing h a s the leading position a t Mandeville. Oggel Cottage, whose senior counselors a r e Dale Burns and

Sharon Van't Kerkhoff, has Betty Cooper for its council president; in Scott, where Greta Weeks and Sue Evans are counselors, Ardis Daining will head the council. Doesburg's president, Susan Lahman, will assist counselor Carol Buitendorp, while at Beck Cottage, Pat Nederveld will work with counselors Miriam Klaaren and Virginia Top. In Kleinheksel, where Marlene Gowans and Sharon Crossman are counselors, Nancy Danielson was elected to the presidency; a t Crispell, Jean Louret will help counselors Sharon Beck and Cheryl Veen to keep the house running smoothly. Voorhees Annex, under the charge of Ann Tell and Cynthia Vander Myde, has chosen Virginia Mortenson as its chief executive, and in Shields, where J o a n Schroeder and Loretta Plassche are in charge, Turid Anderson w a s selected to head the house council. Finally, the residents of Taylor, counseled by Diane Sluyter and Marilyn Scudder, have entrusted J a n e Woodley with the leading office.

The t e a m s had been practicing f o r two weeks, experiencing pains in muscles t h e y never knew they had. The f r e s h m e n were under the direction of Bill Harms, Dan Ritsema, Bob "Moses" Mulder, and Jim Betke while Tim Vander Mel, John " O m a r " Tysse, and Jim String e r coached the sophomores. The practicing w a s through though and the big day was here. T h e respective teams dug in and awaited the signal. The signal sounded and the rope became t a u g h t . Each team strained, the men flushed, sweat appeared on their foreheads, and moral girls gave encouraging words to their men and wiped their brows. The pull was at its peak. The rope went one way and then another. Excitement mounted as the spectators cheered the teams on. The f r e s h m e n brok** the storm fences on their side to get n e a r e r the action. The f r e s h m e n heaved with all their m i g h t and b r o u g h t the sophomores splashing into the forbidding w a t e r of the Black River. They accomplished the feat in 11.9 minutes. Yes, f o r the first time in six years the f r e s h m e n were victorious. The freshmen cheered "Yea, 63" while the dispondent sophomores s a n g softly, "Splish Splash, I was takin' a b a t h ! "

On October 1, 1959, the Hope College Pre-med Society welcomed both old and new members to its first meeting of the 1959-1960 school year. The society which is designed to f o s t e r the interests of the f u t u r e doctors in medicine and dentistry is open to all premedical and pre-dental students having a t least sophomore standing. Special trips of interests, speakers from the v a r i o u s fields of medicine, and films serve to give the members some insights into t h e i r f u t u r e profession. T h e meeting was presided by Phil D a m s t r a , President, and following the business meeting a film entitled "Elective Rhinop l a s t y " was shown. A f t e r t h e film r e f r e s h m e n t s were served.

Mew Courses Offered There have been s e v e r a l changes in the curriculum for the coming year. One of the foremost developments is the newly created or reorganized Greek Department. Although courses in Greek have, in the past, been offered there have been no courses in cultural Greek within the p a s t f e w years. Heretofore a course in New T e s t a m e n t Greek was offered, which w a s geared specifically to the pre-seminary student, creating a definite lack of classical Greek. This y e a r Hope College has Dr. Zsiros who is in charge of the newly organized classical Greek classes. The experiment in offering classical elementary Greek directed to all students, not j u s t those who are interested in attending seminary, h a s proven itself. There are 50 students now enrolled in the elementary Greek

Examination Dates Released The Educational Testing Service has announced dates a t which time the Graduate Record Examinations will be administered at examination centers t h r o u g h o u t the country.

Examination dates a r e : November 21, J a n u a r y 16, April 23, and July 9. For more information contact Mr. Vander Borgh. The United States Civil Service Commission has announced t h a t applications are now being accepted f o r the 1960 Federal Service E n t r a n c e Examination. Through t h i s examination young people of college caliber m a y begin a career in the Federal Civil Service in one of some sixty different occupational fields. The examination is open to college juniors, seniors and g r a d u a t e s regardless of m a j o r study. The jobs to be filled f r o m the F.S.E.E. are in various Federal agencies and are located in Washington D. C., and throughout t h e United States. Interested persons may obtain f u r t h e r information f r o m Dr. Van Dahm in the placement office.

class; the unexpected enrollm e n t and interest shown in t h i s subject necessitated opening an additional section of Greek. Also offered this year in connection with the Greek is a course in Classical Archaeology. The Philosophy D e p a r t m e n t too, has undergone and is in the p r o c e s s of undergoing change. The administration f e l t t h a t more should be offered in the vein of critical thinking, and so a course Reflective and Critical Thinking, is now being offered. The sequel to this will be an advanced course in logic, to be given next semester. The instructor of the course to be offered this year is Dr. Utzinger.

Kuizenga To Speak SL Week Dr. Henry Kuizenga, minister of the F i r s t Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor, will be the speaker f o r Spiritual Life Week, November 8-12. Formerly known as Religious Emphasis week, the week will include Sunday afternoon's Vesper Service in the chapel, special chapel services t h r o u g h out the week, counseling, dorm devotions, the Tuesday evening Y meeting, and a Communion service in t h e chapel Thursday night. The theme f o r concentration is " P r a y e r " .

History of Hope Dr. John Badeau

Aspirations and Ideals Fashion Hope Into Successful College by Betty Vicha Three years ago Hope College was selected as one of the top ten co-educational liberal arts colleges in the country by the Chicago Tribune. In addition, in 1957 the Michigan State Legislature issued a resolution congratulating Hope College on her attainment. A college does not attain a laudable position such as this "overnight" without hardship and ordeal. W h a t then are the sequels t h a t have led to Hope's success? Whose are the aspirations and ideals which fashion Hope into w h a t men have considered successful ? W h a t are these aspirations and ideals? Hope College was founded because of the ideals and aspirations of a band of immigrants from the Netherlands who set sail for America on October 2, 1846. These courageous people, led by Rev. A. C. Van Raalte, made their way to Michigan to settle in a surrounding where they could live and raise their children in accordance with their Christian faith. By 1848 they had settled in a promising location on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan near Black Lake. Even at t h a t early date, they were concerned with the education of t h e i r people and f e l t t h a t " t h e character, outlook and prosperity of a people are dependent upon its education." And so plans w e r e made to

establish a school. The General Synod of the Reformed Church, with which the settlers had affiliated, appointed Walter C. Taylor, an elder in the Reformed Church of Geneva, New York, to be in charge. Work on the pioneer school began in 1851.

Taylor was called Holland Academy and was housed in a building called "Van Vleck" which had been built in 1854. In 1866 Hope College was officially incorporated and t h a t year eight men comprised the first graduation class.

The first r e p o r t on the new school contained this statement by Dr. Van Raalte, "This is my Anchor of Hope f o r this people in the f u t u r e . "

Rev. Philip Phelps D.D. was elected t h e first president and Hope College, still closely connected to the academy, began its long years of growing pains.

He backed u p his belief by giving five acres of land f o r use by the new school. The people, too, had a g r e a t faith in the new school they were establishing. From miles around men came to clear the land, goods were donated, everyone sacrificed something to help Dr. Van Raalte's Anchor of Hope to begin. For they had come to make a place in the New World f o r their children and they were willing to sacrifice if need be in order to prepare them f o r high grade American citizenship and the intelligent development of Christian character. In the words of their courageous founder, " L e s t our chidren become the tag-end of society." Their goal w a s a Christian school. The school headed by W a l t e r

By 1867 the students numbered sixty-eight and the campus contained several other small buildings, one of which w a s a log cabin chapel which the students themselves constructed. Pioneers in every way, the founders of Hope College were educators of t h a t time who recognized the importance and need of higher education f o r women. In contrast to contemporary schools which were a g a i n s t coeducation, Hope in its first year of existence declared: "Higher education for women seems to provide the proper medium between t h e spirit of oriental barbarism which r e g a r d s women as fitted only to be p a r e n t and housekeeper, and the infidelity of women's r i g h t s falsely socalled."

It is our pleasure, f o r the second year, to include the academic p r o g r a m with the traditional f e a t u r e s of Homecoming. Through these meetings m a y you gain increased insight into m a n y of the problems confronting us. In keeping with the theme of the Academic Homecoming, " E x panding Frontiers in the Space A g e " we are happy to announce t h a t our college campus is expanding its frontiers. The Board of Trustees has announced a three million dollar expansion campaign in order t h a t Hope may be able to meet the demands of this space age. Goals of the campaign are a new library, laboratory-classroom building, athletic field, fine a r t s building (through reconstruction of the old library), and additional endowment. We are confident t h a t , with the support of loyal alumni, parents, friends of business and industry, the church, and friends of the college, we will meet and exceed our goal.

Letter to the Editor

Present Bidding System Under Criticism EDITOR'S NOTE Because of the length of Miss Klaaren's letter, the ANCHOR w a s unable to print the entire text. For those students interested in reading the entire letter, please contact any sorority president for her copy of this letter. S h i f t i n g our attention f r o m t h e house parties to the meeting of the soph, girls, we see a cont r a s t i n g attitude of serious t h o u g h t as the girls list the sororities they w a n t in the ord e r which they w a n t them. Yet, a t this very meeting, I felt the ridiculousness of the situation when I had to tell the girls, "Don't count too highly on gett i n g your top choices. Too m a n y of you may w a n t the s a m e sorority . . . and some of you m a y be u n h a p p y since our quota system requires t h a t our societies be kept relatively equal in size of membership. However, all of you will receive a bid f r o m a sorority." Here we arrive a t the crux of t h e entire m a t t e r : Why should a girl belong to a sorority at all if she cannot belong to the one she wants? How did you decide t h a t you wanted to belong to a sorority? W a s n ' t your decision based upon t h a t f a c t t h a t there was a particular group of girls of whom you wanted to be a p a r t ? The Clearing House, composed of the senior Pan-Hellenic

representatives f r o m each sorority, has the extremely difficult and t r y i n g task of determining which girls each sorority may bid. Although we didn't intend to severely criticize our sorority bidding system a t our Sept. 15 house parties, we did precisely t h a t when we rated t h e soph, girls. Remember our comments . . . "This t a k e s all night (yawn) . . . so many girls to rate. I don't know who threef o u r t h s of these kids are. Oh, j u s t fill a number in . . . it won't make much difference." Under our present system, the number of girls eligible to be bid is divided by 10. This quotient indicates how many I ' s , 2's, 3's, . . . 10's, each individual girl assigns t o those who are eligible. A f t e r the counting and tabulation of all the ballots, each sorority makes a list of the girls in r a n k order, the girls with the lowest number of votes a t the top. This list, kept within the confidence of the Clearing Board, is compared with t h e preferences of the girls desiring to join. The paradox of the number workings of our system is t h a t the number itself does not always tells t h e t r u t h â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it's the WHY behind the number! As soon as we ask why the number was given, we are dealing with the personality of t h e girl. And if t h e complete sororities a t the house parties didn't

know all the girls, how can one expect five Senior Pan-Hellenic members to know them all? It is so evident t h a t we need to vastly change or abolish completely our p r e s e n t bidding system t h a t it seems almost superfluous to s t a t e it. Until 1950, Hope sororities employed rushing. Then our present system was adopted. And since 1950, although our college has made m a n y other changes because of increased enrollment, our bidding system has remained essentially t h e same! There are more f r e s h m a n girls this year t h a n ever bef o r e in the history of Hope. How m a n y of them will you know by bidding time next fall ? Will t h e sororities be able to take them all? Must we create another new sorority, and then two years later p e r h a p s create still a n o t h e r ? This would hardly be even a t e m p o r a r y solution . . . It h a s been said t h a t if we adopted a r u s h i n g p r o g r a m some sororities would definitely weaken and in t h e next couple years die out altogether. However, if this were to be the case, it would be the f a u l t of t h e sorority, and n o t the system whereby new girls are obtained! And the initiative and independence belonging to each college girl would be challenged, as to whether she received the bid she wanted or not. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Mary Ann Klaaren

Generally speaking, the United S t a t e s and Canada have enjoyed a relationship which has been conspicuously peaceful f o r almost one hundred years. Both countries have pointed with justifiable pride to the f a c t t h a t the world's longest unfortified common f r o n t i e r s e p a r a t e s Canada and the U.S. I think t h a t Americans and Canadians alike can well be proud of such an amicable relationship. But I f e a r t h a t Americans have come to take our neighbor to the north too much f o r granted. There is evidence of growing tensions between O t t a w a and Washington which must not be taken lightly by the citizens of either nation. Canada is much more than the nation of mounted policemen of movie and television fame, and remote havens f o r adventurous American outdoorsmen. Canada is a nation of immense potential wealth and a growing population which h a s just recently begun to develop a strong sense of national identity. Though loyal to the British Crown, Canada is fully independent, and Canadians strongly resent being treated as a third or f o u r t h r a t e power. Present sources of friction between Canada and the U.S. seem largely, though not entirely, rooted in economics. Canada is America's best customer, and has been f o r a long time. Though we sell more goods to Canada than to any other country, we have not shown a sufficient degree of willingness to buy goods in r e t u r n f r o m Canada. The result of our discriminations a g a i n s t some of Canada's chief products has been the creation of an unfavorable balance of t r a d e f o r Canada. Canada, like the United States, produces more wheat than her population can consume. In many instances, our p r o g r a m s of surplus wheat disposal have seriously u p s e t the Canadian pattern of wheat sales in foreign markets. To Canadians, the most distressing aspect of CanadianAmerican economic relations is undoubtedly the fact the U.S. is practicing economic imperialism north of the border on a large scale. While Americans loudly decry imperialism in its more obvious f o r m s in A f r i c a and Asia, American control of key Canadian industries has grown to the point where many responsible Canadians a r e voicing expressions of alarm concerning f u t u r e Canadian economic development. It is conceivable t h a t a decision based on the needs of our own economy could be made, let us say, in Detroit t h a t could have adverse affects on the Canadian economy. Canada would like very much to carry on an increased volume of trade with Red China. Canadian public opinion is also generally in favor of recognition of the mainland regime, and we may one day find Canada voting in favor of a d m i t t i n g Communist China to membership in the United Nations. Canada is determined to tailor its foreign policy to suit Canadian needs and interests, but somehow we in this country take Canada f o r g r a n t e d to the point of assuming t h a t Canada will support our policies regardless of whether those policies are in the interests of a n y country other t h a n the United States. Though America continues to offer "counsel" to Canada by enjoining her to hold f a s t to our policy of non-recognition and severely limited intercourse with Communist China, it seems t h a t we will have to re-think our position if increased tensions with Canada over this question are to be avoided. For those who would minimize the importance of Canada as our p a r t n e r in the defense of western ideals and civilization, it might be well to consider the possible implications to us of a neutral and totally disarmed Canada. Such a possibility should not be passed off as unlikely speculation. Control of Canadian-American defense of North America has been largely t a k e n over by this country. Native Canadian a i r c r a f t production schedules have been cut to the bone in f a v o r of a i r c r a f t and missiles produced in the U. S. Canada h a s devoted a large share of h e r budget to defense. Now that the l a r g e r share of f u n d s for missiles, etc., are being paid out to U.S. concerns, Canadians might decide that t h e burden is now too great. W e might consider the possible results of losing the early warning system in the Arctic regions of Canada if our northern neighbor were to become a neutral nation. We share more t h a n a continent with our Canadian friends. We share a common ideological and cultural heritage. We m u s t not f o r g e t t h a t questions of common interest cannot be dealt with in a more or less a r b i t r a r y m a n n e r by only one member in a partnership if t h a t p a r t n e r s h i p is to survive and to continue to have meaning. If we cannot develop a g r e a t e r sensitivity to the problems that are close to us, how can we face the myriad of difficulties with which our position of world leadership constrains us to deal around the globe?

Hope Homecoming: Too Academic? By Milton Nieuwsma

Offered

To Campust Students

by Don P a a r l b e r g W T A S is the Hope College radio station. It is a carrier current radio station owned and operated by students. W T A S broadcasts seven days a week exclusively to the students on the campus. The p r o g r a m s offered include study music, classical music, jazz, and popular music. There is also a widely diversified program schedule of educational presentations and broadcasts of many student functions. One of the newest services to the campus is the broadcasting of selected classical material which supplements required listening for music l i t e r a t u r e classes. The broadcasting studio is located in the basement of Kollen Hall. The up-to-date equipment which has been installed and is in use is supplemented by an extensive record library. This past year has been spent building the studio and installing the equipment. While this work was being done, W T A S managed to maintain up to eight hours a day of p r o g r a m m i n g . All records received by W T A S are promotional material. The only charge made to the station f o r these records is handling and postage charges. Except f o r the addition of new equipment, operation expenses a r e covered by advertising accounts. The positions on the staff of W T A S a r e open to any student who can maintain a 2.0 g r a d e average. At present, the staff is made up of about fifty students, including announcers and engineers. Plans are now in action f o r the f u t u r e of WTAS. One of the plans f o r the immediate f u t u r e is the playing of selected dinner music in all the campus dining halls. W T A S also hopes to have f u t u r e lines to the women's cottages, the new women's dormitory, and the off-campus f r a t e r n i t y houses. The executive council f o r the year 1959-60 includes Lois Bonnema. General M a n a g e r ; Bob Van Etten, Technical Director; Paul Dalman, Music Librarian; and Chuck Hale, P r o g r a m Director. The W T A S f a c u l t y advisor is Robert L. Smith, professor in the Speech Department.

Origin Of Station in Koiien by Pete Geitner W T A S had its beginning early in the school year of 195657 when two students started broadcasting with a small homebuilt t r a n s m i t t e r and t h e i r own equipment. They even were forced to use t h e i r own rooms as studios. W T A S continued broadcasting all that year to only the men of Kollen Hall. They vigorously supported the effort by p u t t i n g in time as announcers and lending t h e i r records to the station. By the fall of t h a t year W T A S had reached a place of considerable notice on the campus. Having gained this recognition many petitions w e r e circulated requesting campus-wide broadcasts.

New Programs

Over Station by Virginia Top The first and only speaking program, "We the People," can now be heard every Monday from 7:00 to 7:15 p.m. on the college radio station, WTAS. Ekdal Buys, the director, and a special guest will discuss and analyze various political, economic, social, and religious issues. It is hoped t h a t these programs will create a g r e a t e r interest among the student body in government. Some of the special guests to be interviewed in the near future will be Representative Ford, Senator Geerlings, a Catholic Father, and a member of the Teamsters' Union. For those of you who keep late hours on the weekend or who enjoy t a l k i n g over your date of the evening to the tune of lovely and quiet music, W T A S has extended the Friday and S a t u r d a y night musical programs to 1:00 a.m. In the future WTAS is hoping that each college department will be able to have some time each week to present a special program. An exemple

This Year of this cooperation between the departments and W T A S would be playing assigned records f o r the Music L i t e r a t u r e class at a certain time each week. Recordings of the I.R.C. meetings could be broadcasted in connection with the history and political science department. As a whole the p r o g r a m s being offered this year a r e much the same as last year. It is interesting to note t h a t of all the hours of broadcasting only 8 are rock 'n roll music, while 72 are classical, mood, or popular music. W T A S would appreciate any comments or suggestions t h a t you may have about the programs. Anyone who is interested in working f o r W T A S can sign up f o r a n audition with Chuck Hale a t Kollen Hall.

In response to the students' petitions t h e administration consented to build a modern studio in Kollen Hall basement. This new studio was to be fitted with up-to-date broadcasting equipment. The following year was spent building the studio and installing the new equipment. While all this was going on 15 hours of pr o g r a m m i n g per day were still being given to the college community. At the present W T A S is still expanding to m e e t the demands of an ever growing audience. It hopes t h a t with the college's and the Holland advertisers' help it m a y provide the Holland a r e a with F.M. reception in the near f u t u r e .

W H E R E ' S T H E Q U E E N ? With all the " e x t r a s " thrown into Homecoming this year, m a n y people around campus—especially upperclassmen who r e m e m b e r w h a t Homecoming used to be— question their significance. A number of s t u d e n t s were asked t h e i r opinions of this year's socalled academic Homecoming, and the views expressed by most of them indicated little interest in the academic p a r t of it. "Why all those lectures and classroom discussions?" w a s the grievance of many. " W h y not bring back j u s t t h e coronation, pep rally, football game, the dance and other things t h a t go with Homecoming?" t h e oldsters complained. "Even the Homecoming theme, " E x p a n d i n g F r o n t i e r s in the Space Age," sounds more a p p r o p r i a t e f o r a convention of "eggheads" (intellectuals) t h a n f o r a Homecoming celebration," — one f r a n k opinion. •

Accent on Music!

by Greg Bryson The music d e p a r t m e n t has g r e a t plans f o r entertaining and educating our campus again this year. Many guest a r t i s t s will be heard on campus as well as at the Civic Concert Series. Various lecitals and concerts will be held to which all students are cordially invited. The Chapel Choir, composed of seventy-one voices, will tour the eastern s t a t e s next spring, climaxing the tour by singing on the g r e a t s t a g e of the Radio City Music Hall in New York City on E a s t e r Morning a t the Dawn Service. Already the choir has begun regular rehearsals p r e p a r i n g themselves f o r t h e i r campus and community appearances. The music d e p a r t m e n t in cooperation with W T A S will sponsor a musical p r o g r a m on Monday and Wednesday evenings. This p ro g r a m will be required listening f o r anyone taking Music 17, "Survey of Music Literature." However, all students are urged and invited to enjoy the fine music which will be presented. At the p r e s e n t time every branch of the department is extremely busy getting ready f o r Homecoming appearances. The newly enlarged Marching Band, led by Mr. Schaberg, will particip a t e in the parade, and again a t the Hope-Kalamazoo game. The Men's Choir, u n d e r the direction of Mr. Roger Rietberg, will also p e r f o r m on the field, singing a stirring a r r a n g e m e n t of "I Love Life." Climaxing the weekend's festivities, is the Homecoming Vesper Service, to be held Sunday afternoon, October 18 a t 3:00 P.M. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel. The theme of the service is "I Am The Way, The Truth, and The Life." Both the Chancel and Chapel Choirs will provide the anthems, assisted by vocal and instrumental soloists. The s t r i n g section of the Symphonette will play f r o m the chapel balcony. A f e a t u r e of Homecoming Vespers is the traditional "Tower Music." This year, the music f r o m the tower will be t h a t of Thomas Canning, a contemporary composer, commissioned by Hope to write a work especially f o r the college. The music department u r g e s all to attend this very worshipful and inspiring vesper service as a fitting climax to Homecoming 1959.

Review: A Death In A Family (Cont'd f r o m page 5) haps in this simplicity lies its naturalness, its humanity. A Death in the Family is just t h a t : The sudden stopping of the life of one member of the Follett f a m i l y ; namely, the husband. Author Agee's interest is not so much in the death of the man, but in t h e reactions of his wife, his children and his relatives. The a u t h o r ' s theme is so obvious as to be missed by many readers who demand a more complex and often symbolic problem. J a m e s Agee is not concerned with a problem which often is not related to the reader. He says simply and eloquently t h a t death is not always the enemy of mankind, but t h a t through death we a r e all drawn closer together in order t h a t we may see the sometimes puzzling course of our own lives. There is no sentimentality involved in his writing of this. At all times the poetic prose is forceful and objective, while it seems at the same time soft and subjective. This is a story of a tragedy. Not t r a g e d y in epic t e r m s such as the death of a nation or a beloved Lord, but t r a g e d y which is "human." Tragedy which takes us and wrenches u s away f r o m our complacent existences and forces us to see through a glass clearly: not a t the sufferings of Mary Follett, or Aunt Hannah, or Andrew, or even t h e children ( f o r these characters are only ourselves with different names) but the t r a g e d y of mankind's s t r u g g l e against forces which it does not understand, being reenacted over and over again, not in one time or one place, but in all times and all places. We come out of the tortuous path of human suffering, ourselves understanding as we have never before understood, the

meaning of death and of love in the face of death. It is ironic t h a t J a m e s Agee wrote so well of humanity as pictured in its moments of glory during periods of despair, f o r suddenly, at the age of forty-five, J a m e s Agee himself came face to face with the Death t h a t he wanted readers not to f e a r . On May 16, 1955, he died of a h e a r t attack, and two years later on May 5, 1958, he received the Pulitzer Prize posthumously, and will undoubtedly be remembered as the man who, according to Alfred Kazin, " H a s a power with English words which can make you gasp."

Spends Seven Weeks As Community Ambassador by Linda Gordon As Holland's Community Ambassador f o r 1959, I spent seven weeks in Brazil this summer. I lived with a Brazilian family f o r one month and spent three weeks in various cities which represent the past, present and f u t u r e of the country.

new food, new dances and new friendships. My Brazilian mother is the only one in the family who speaks English. Her husband and t h e girls can say "good morning," "good n i g h t " and a few other p h r a s e s in English. But I managed to learn enough Portuguese so that I was able to c a r r y on a simple conversation with them. The language barrier certainly w a s not serious enough to prevent us f r o m becoming very close friends, and I really feel that they are my Brazilian " f a mily."

Nine other Experimenters in International Living l e f t New York City with me on J u n e 27. Our Transcontinental airliner arrived the following day in Sao Paulo, which is the largest city in Brazil with a population of three and a half million. For five days, we had an orientation period in Sao Paulo. The Cultural Union of Brazil and the United States aided us in becoming acquainted with Brazilian culture, the economy and the people. This was the beginning of our Experiment, which was aimed at promoting friendship and understanding between Americans and Brazilians. The Fourth of July was our first day with our Brazilian families. Several of the Americans remained in Sao Paulo, but most of us lived in other cities near this metropolis. I lived in Braganca Paulista, a city of about 20,000 people. Although Braganca's population is about the same as Holland's, the appearance of the city is completely different. The stores, there a r e small and most of them are open in the front, without show windows. At night, metal gates slide down for p r o t e c t i o n against burglars. The homes are old and come right up to the sidewalk. The s t r e e t s , which are very steep, are of cobblestone. I soon found t h a t high heels are impractical in such a place. Braganca's central square is about the only level area in town. From there, the streets slope down in all f o u r directions. The family of Manoel Stefani, which whom I stayed, was very friendly and made me feel completely a t home. Senor and Senora Stefani have t h r e e daughters, ages 11, 10 and seven. The family, which owns m a n y coffee plantations, is one of the wealthiest in Braganca. We found t h a t every minute of every day was a real experiment f o r we were experimenting with a new language,

While I was in Braganca, I became acquainted with many other families. A f t e r I attended some meetings of the English Club there, the various members invited me to their homes. I also got to know some of the young people in town and we had some wonderful times together. One of my most pleasant memories of Braganca is the night that three boys with wonderful voices and a guitar serenaded me. The Brazilians are so friendly and hospitable. They like the United S t a t e s and are anxious to know the American people. W h e n the Americans took a two-week t r i p together, we were accompanied by nine Brazilians, members of our families. We began by visiting Belo Horizante, Brazil's first planned city. The most interesting p a r t of our t r i p was a visit to Brasilia, the f u t u r e capital of Brazil. This spectacularly modern city is being built in the center of the Country on land which, six years ago, had not even been passed over by an airplane. A f t e r seeing the f u t u r e capital, we went to Rio, site of the government's headquarters at the present time. While in Rio, besides enjoying beautiful Copacabana Beach, we went to the tops of two famous mountains. S u g a r Loaf and Corcovado. From there, we had marvelous views of the city, the mountains, the ocean and Guanabara Bay. We visited the Senate, where we saw the present gove r n m e n t at work; and also the palace of Don Pedro II, who was emperor of Brazil in the late 19th century. Wherever we went, we made many wonderful friends. It was t r u l y a great experience to be able to get to know and love the people of another country. I think the Experiment in International Living is an excellent way to gain friendship between different countries. I certainly have a feeling of closeness with the Brazilians and now it is up to me to extend this friendship to the people of Holland, and to all Americans. A s Holland's Community Ambassador, I am giving speeches and showing pictures of Brazil to all the groups which sponsored my trip. Most Brazilians have an extremely good impression of Americans, and now I am earnestly a t t e m p t i n g to gain a parallel feeling f r o m the people of Holland, Michigan.

President Addresses Council Direct Purpose Goals Mechanics by Rowland Van E s The general direction our council is to t a k e is not radically different f r o m t h a t proposed by any sound student government. We have a twofold duty — one is not to eliminate the other in any sense. 1.) We must bring action on all m a t t e r s which are brought to us. This means genuine, meaningful, and prompt action. This also means gaining possibilities f o r action if t h e y are not presently open to us. We must assume some responsibilities if necessary. 2.) The second duty, or, more correctly, the reverse side of this coin of direction, is to crystallize the student thinking in certain areas, to focus t h e i r attention where it is needed, to bring to bear m a t t e r s of importance which, as a whole, they would allow to slip by the boards. With our direction set, we must determine our purpose. Ideally then, our purpose is first of all to leave the council and student body in a better position than w h a t we s t a r t out in. We want to strengthen it in the esteem of all those whose eyes fall on us — students who look to us f o r advice, help, support; the f a c u l t y who look to us f o r response, help, ideas; and outsiders who look to us as leaders of t h e i r college. We want to strengthen our voice in the control of college affairs f o r the seemingly mundane purpose of continuing to a t t r a c t the highest in potential of the leadership on campus, f o r this is important f o r sustaining the quality of the life of the council. We must s t a r t the snowballing effect which will lead f r o m a stronger council to g r e a t e r opportunities to a m o r e vital college community, to enriched

lives, and new horizons and on. And a f t e r this ideal side, what a r e our goals — what are the stepping stones toward this point? Toward a strengthened council we will work f o r a clear-cut position in the college set-up — making council the epitome of decision in campus community life, with the respective men's and women's governing bodies directly responsible to us and having a direct liaison with the administrative segment of our campus community. Toward an enriched campus community life we will progress toward self sufficiency in the closest we can come to a student union, opening up Juliana f o r a place where we as Hope College men and women can g a t h e r f o r relaxation, enjoyment, and general enrichment of interchange of ideas. Toward a more conducive atmosphere of constructive total education we will initiate the implementation of an honor system. Included also will be the goals of the student body, our constituents, as they present and suggest them. Being a practical organization with ideal purposes and practical goals, w h a t a r e the mechanics t h a t will be employed in the process of realization ? Each and every one of us must completely fulfill our responsibilities— not j u s t fill our positions as a bump fills its position on a log — but to make t h e council our first obligation, of prime importance in our responsibilities, keeping ourselves f r e e and uncluttered f r o m other details in clubs and various activities. Hope College Student Council f o r 1959-60, t h i s is our challenge, this is our privilege, this is our obligation!

Among Rowland's most imp o r t a n t duties a r e representing the student body and being chairman at all the Student Council meetings. Joan Schroeder, a senior f r o m Calgary, Alberta, Canada is this year's S.C. vice-president. Since J o a n is practice teaching a high school sophomore English class, she would like to confine herself to her sorority. Sibylline, and the S.C. In the few spare moments t h a t J o a n has, she enjoys music and reading. Some of her duties, besides being the president's assistant, include: being chairman of the date book for all college events and being responsible for initiating action on committee progress and policies.

Student Council treasurer, Cal Bruins, is a junior f r o m Wanpun, Wisconsin.

The upperclass counselling p r o g r a m a t f r e s h m e n registration is also organized by the Council. Activities sponsored annually are the pull, Nykerk, and the p a r t y the Saturday night of Homecoming weekend. F U T U R E P L A N S VARY F u t u r e plans of the Council are many and varied. P r e p a r a tions are being made to publish a student handbook. This is a joint project with the men of the Blue Key.

As a representative g r o u p of the student body, the Council strives to give attention to any and all m a t t e r s concerning Hope through the use of five s t a n d i n g committees. COMMITTEES FUNCTION These committees a r e : Educational Affairs Committee whose purpose is to f o r m u l a t e policies concerning education and process them t h r o u g h proper channels, and act as a public relations committee; Religious A f f a i r s Committee which is responsible f o r the religious p r o g r a m on campus, including chapel; Student Affairs Committee covers the complaints of the s t u d e n t s ; Social A f f a i r s Committee plans an adequate p r o g r a m of recreation f o r the college; Cultural Affairs Committee acts as co-ordinator f o r the student-faculty cultural committee. In addition to these standing committees, special committees are appointed when the need arises. The m a j o r i t y of the Student Council members and officers are elected in the Spring. However, each Fall two members at large are chosen by the Council f r o m students who have appeared before the entire Council explaining why they are interested in Council work.

Comparison

Tomorrow, Hope College will be the host of Kalamazoo College in the annual Homecoming football game. " K " College as it is known to Hopeites is similar to and yet different f r o m Hope in many ways. Kalamazoo College h a s an enrollment of about 650 students, led by a faculty of about 75. The campus is located only a few blocks f r o m the heart of Kalamazoo much like Hope's relationship to Holland. Kalamazoo is a co-ed school offering a Bachelor of A r t s degree to its g r a d u a t e s . It was founded by the Baptists in 1833 and is still owned and operated by the Baptists. This makes it a church supported school, just as Hope is. The basic aims and goals of the college a r e listed in their catalogue. The college "places a definite emphasis upon scholarly attainment combined with the development of personality." They also aim to " t r a i n young men and women in a Christian environment f o r constructive partnership in society and to orient them in the values of contemporary culture." Kalamazoo College offers a wide variety of courses much like Hope. M a j o r s a r e available in the area of foreign languages, N a t u r a l Sciences, the Humanities, or the Social Sciences.

They also have a Women's League and a Men's Union. There is also an opportunity for those who like to sing to join one of the several choirs on campus. Although Kalamazoo College is only about half the size of Hope they have a large campus of 47 acres with several buildings. To mention a few, there is Stetson Chapel, Mandvelle Library, Olds Science Hall, Upton Science Hall, Tredway Gymnasium and several others. Kalamazoo College h a s the same basic requirements f o r graduation as Hope. A person must have a 2.0 average in order to receive his diploma.

Before moving to Holland, Mr. Schaberg was a life resident of Lansing, Michigan. He attended Oberlin College, Michigan State University, and the E a s t m a n School of Music. N e x t summer Mr. Schaberg will complete his Master's degree at the E a s t m a n School of Music. The new band director is very enthusiastic about Hope's fiftypiece band. He says t h e band has a g r e a t amount of spirit and t h a t it p u t s on a splendid performance, in spite of the f a c t t h a t it rehearses only two hours a week. Mr. Schaberg would like the students a t Hope to learn the song, "Anchors of Hope," which was w r i t t e n by Dr. Rider. The band will play this song at the next half-time show. He would also like the student body to begin a traditional parade shortly before g a m e time f r o m the campus to Riverview P a r k . The cheerleaders would lead this parade" supported by the college band. Let's all get behind our new band director and support him and our fine band.

by " T Y " Kleis A coach is one who has usually starred in the particular sport he is coaching. If not s t a r r i n g in a heroic role, a plebian role such as knowing thoroughly every f u n d a m e n t a l of the sport. He experiences r i g h t along with 'his' boys the same sensations at kick-off's. The same contraction of the stomach muscles when a long pass is heaved. The a w f u l and dreadful feeling when you lose a game, which you so badly wanted to win. But also a coach will share in the glorious, almost celestial a u r a of winning a g a m e over an arch-rival such as Calvin. Let's look a t the men who have guided our boys through an undefeated year t h u s f a r . The head coach is Russell DeVette, who is f a s t becoming one of the most successful small college coaches in the country. Coach DeVette is beginning his fifth year as head grid mentor of the "Flying Dutchmen". In f o u r years under his coaching the orange and blue have advanced f r o m a 4-5 record in 1955 to a 4-4 in '56, 7-2 in '57, and finally to a record breaking 8-1 in 1958. His five wins and one loss in conference competition brought him his first grid championship, a three-way tie with Albion and Hillsdale. A f t e r leaving Muskegon High School, he entered Hope College and graduated in 1947. During the next year he gained his Master's Degree at the University of Michigan, and in the fall of 1948 he returned to his Alma Mater as Backfield Coach and Head Basketball Coach. In 1951 he again entered the service, the U.S. Marines, and served f o r two years. Following this he became Backfield Coach and Head Basketball Coach a t the University of Maine in Orono. He returned to Holland in 1955 to assume the head coaching responsibilities in the three m a j o r sports: football, basketball and baseball. In a following issue I shall discuss his enviable 'cage' record he has accumulated. The man who coaches the 'Unsung heroes', the linemen is Gordon Brewer. Molding and making a strong forward line is the difficult task of this 1948 Hope graduate. Feared t h r o u g h o u t the M.I.A.A. f o r their rugged rough line play, the Hope lines have steadily improved under his eagle eye. He not only preaches the theory t h a t a good defense is a good offense but also practices it. As Gord enters his f o u r t h year, he's faced with the challenge of replacing last year's two main stalwarts. Little All-American, All-State, All MIAA, league's M.V.P., tackle L a r r y Ter Molen and All-State, All-MIAA guard Don P a a r l b e r g . Upon graduation from Hope, Brewer began teaching and coaching at Byron Center. He then started upon a successful coaching tenure at Grand Rapids Kelloggsville High School, broken up in 1952 by a year at the University of Michigan where he attained his Master's Degree. A f t e r being appointed to the Hope faculty in 1956, he not only quickly attained the s t a t u s of one of Michigan's finest young line coaches but also became Head Track and Reserve Basketball Coach. Brewer, like DeVette serves as an I n s t r u c t o r in the Dep a r t m e n t of Physical Education, and is well liked. Second behind DeVette in seniority on the " F l y i n g Dutchmen" staff is end coach, Kenneth Weller, who is beginning his eighth full season in the Hope coaching ranks. Although Weller now concentrates on the ends he has done extensive work with the backfield and interior line. Known perhaps best f o r his terrific scouting ability, Weller acts as Head Scout spending most of his S a t u r d a y s in the stadiums of later season Hope foes. A native of Holland, Weller starred in football a t Holland High. Before entering the Navy he spent two years a t the "U of M" and a f t e r his service hitch he starred on the Hope grid squads of '46 and '47. Receiving his Master's Degree in Business Administration a t Michigan in '49, he returned to the site of his Alma Mater to coach football and to teach Economics. . . F o r the past few years, our fine end coach has again f r e quented the Michigan campus in pursuit of the highest of degrees, the doctorate. Well fellow colleagues, and visiting alumni, there are the members of the coaching staff in football. If you have a word of praise f o r the team and how they played, why don't you tell these fine men.

As if recalling the 40-7 whipping they'd once received at the hands of Wabash College, our high "Flying Dutchmen" playing the brand of ball they a r e capable of playing consistently . . . , were victorious over Wabash. Supposedly a two - touchdown underdog Hope led 19-0 going into the f o u r t h and final quarter - Wabash, who had lost a h e a r t b r e a k e r to the University of Washington the Saturday before, capitalized on breaks f o r their two touchdowns. Hope drew first blood midway into the 2nd quarter, when Bob Teall, a promising f r e s h m a n from Holland High School, took a hand-off from quarterback
