"Suzy Hope" is not a One Man Woman What with everything falling, leaves 1 mean, and everybody busy with rushing and "football practice," it looks as if the all-important wouldn't be mail—or did 1 say m-a-l-e?? Well, they do have definite connections as "ye roving reporter" has reverently discovered on an all-campus survey. Nothing interferes with the male mail! By the looks of the census poll, one could easily see that "Susie" Hope does little more than corresponding to her one-and-only. If ever you are scouring the campus for one of the co-eds, you'll find her burying herself in an attempt to compose a whirl of words to some G.I. No more is a man judged by character, but by the " type of letter he is able to write. Of course, one can see by the chart that the Seniors are truly "khaki" gals — but who can explain the Junior co-ed's similar choice of uniform? And no one can put anything over on our little Freshies, for have you ever seen so much variety? All goes to show —green or no green — they're still on the ball. One can always note that our Senior belle is not impartial — that is, doesn't write to one or more in each branch of uniform; but down through the ages — no, I mean years — "Susie" Hope seems to want more variety so she jots a note to "a few." So don't you worry about "Susie" — even though there aren't many on the campus — young or otherwise — men, I mean, she will be spending many a wintor evening slinging a letter to t h a t certain one in the Service! a b c d e Sr. : 46% 12% 26% 12% 5% Jr 30% 20% 20% 30% Soph 41% 18% 41% Fr 11% 2% 41% 2% 44% a.

meeting last Tuesday evening. Mary Lois spoke mainly in connection with the six Daily Vacation Bible Schools in which the girls taught. The schools were held in the hills near Annville and McKee, where the Reformed Church has located two mission stations.

Rosanna Atkins, the president of the French Club, led the first meeting in the Sorosis Room on Wednesday night, October 11. The other officers are: Vice president, J a n e t Bogart; secretary, Elaine Prins; and treasurer, Marjorie Van Vranken. The program f o r the coming year, planned by Miss Bogart, is to study the French race from a cultural point of view. Then they all told, in French, what they did during the summer. This is not a warning to our "Swimmez-vous dans I'eau ?"

As I sit here on this beautiful day, typical of October's "bright blue weather," a line of song comes to my mind . . . "Water boy, where is you hiding . . . ? " Am I t h i r s t y ? No! I am practically drooling over the thought that this month we are to have a Homecoming g a m e ! Then why the song, you a s k ? Well, there won't be a water boy this year. No sir. But . . . wait until you see the smooth little gals that'll be totin' the wire baskets around. October the 28th is the day when Hope will see this wonder come to pass. An all-girls' team, run by girls, assisted by girls and supported by girls. Oh, 1 know there will be derisive laughter f r o m the Hope men, but it will turn to a sheepish grin when they see the weaker ( ? ) sex in action. If you want action, you will get it. Plenty of it. No rough-house stuff, understand, but action. . . . Wait 'til you see the girls run out onto the field. They have had training and have been in training. My! how they've grown. "Look at those shoulders, chum." "If her mother could see her now!" "Hope really develops an all-around girl." I was over to watch practice the

other day. Jack was explaining the principles of the game to some of the meeker lassies. When he lined them up f o r practice you could see their fighting spirit. There was a flashing of eyes, the whistle blew and before I knew it one girl was off down the field with the rest of both teams behind her. That is all but one girl. She stood on the line of scrimmage with a funny look on her face. Jack declared it a touchdown and asked f o r the ball. "The b a l l ? " echoed the co-eds, " t h a t girl back there has the ball." And so the play started over again from the line of scrimmage. This time it was more of a mass murder. Talk about a pile of a r m s and legs and curls — and I thought it was touch football. The worst casualty was when Ann Vander Jact broke her longest fingernail. On the third down Louise Rove started through the center of the line to tackle hefty Rosemary Finlaw. Elaine Mensiner took the ball around left end and threw a pass to Marie Jenkins. At least it was intended for Marie, but C o n n i e Crawford helped her catch i t Then there ensued a great argument over who had the ball. Connie could talk the loudest, but Marie didn't

hesitate to pull her hair and yank the ball away. When Jack got there, he discovered both girls were on the same side and settled it up by announcing they would kick on the fourth down. One of the little Meulendyke twins was half back and really gave that kick all she had. She discovered later than she wasn't the one that was supposed to kick, but at least she gave it all she had. I don't remember anything else till they carried J a n e Fichtner off the field. She's still limping around due to a knee t h a t was thrown out of joint (or something). Cheer leaders and drum majors were practicing along the sidelines. Oh, it's a great game and involves a lot qf intestinal fortitude or maybe it's mair-xy-doats. Anyhood, just watch those gals when they get out there on that Homecoming day. This is something new, all right, arid boy, it sure is going over. I've screamed a lot myself, and am hoarse, so better stop. This is a brief preview of futyre events, and I'm so excited just thinking about the game that I can't wait to see i t How about you, kid?

Rules for Smart Frosh Rules all smart frosh will follow until the "burning" are: (1) All frosh must " p o t " to upperclassmen — with a graceful sweep and bow; (2) "greenies" are forbidden to appear on the streets a f t e r 10:30 p. m. while these laws are in force; (3) Freshmen may not date upperclassmen except on Sundays and society m e e t i n g nights; (4) most important of all, frosh must wear their " g r e e n " at all times on campus and off. Offenders of these rules will be severely punished by Student Council.

Scalpel Club Meets with Doctor Vergeer The old members of Scalpel Club met with Dr. Vergeer f o r the first time in the new year on October 4, 1944. A business meeting was held in which there was a discussion of new membership and necessary qualifications. These qualifications are the sincere interest of the person, a Biology-major, premed, or pre-nursing, and a previous course in Biology. The new members of Scalpel Club will be welcomed in our next meeting which is to be on the third Wednesday 6t this month. The club will be privileged to hear as our guest speaker, a doctor home on furlough who will speak on " B u m s , " a subject of g r e a t interest and importance to us all in these days. o

The.first thing I remember about my life is a shelf of the Blue Key Book Store. I hadn't lived there very long when I was handed to a Freshman girl named Jane. J a n e and I became very good friends. She studied me every night as Freshmen are expected to do. She learned all my verbs and nouns and never tore my pages by frantically r e f e r r i n g to me when the teacher asked a question. I was very proud of my first owner, although all her A's were due to the excellent way in which I am written. However, J a n e had one very annoying habit. She used to e a t crackers while studying me and let crumbs drop into my pages. I never could understand why people have to eat while reading. The next year J a n e sold me to Dora. My useful days were gone. Dora let me collect dust between her bookends while she dashed to answer buzzers and phone calls. She'd grab me about two minutes before a class and run to arrive at even a semblance of the correct time. My blue cover always turned red with e m b a r r a s s m e n t when we walked into the English room three minutes a f t e r the bell rang. Occasionally she'd take me down to the Model with her latest man (those

were the good old days when d a t e s weren't dried f r u i t ) , but she always managed to dab me with some hot f u d g e sauce and spoil my white complexion. Then when exams rolled around she kept m e up until all hours of the night t r y ing to cram my vast knowledge into her r a t h e r dizzy head. Once she practically broke my back when she threw me a t h e r roommate in one of their friendly quarrels. To Dora I was no more than paper. She never understood me and I'm the type of book t h a t needs sympathy. In my third year on Hope's Campus I belonged to Edna. My d a y s of misery had only begun. Edna was, as we say in book language, a destroyer. She scribbled all over my pages in class. I was covered with everything f r o m the latest dress models to the Army, Navy, and Marine insignia. She folded back my pages, doodled on my cover, and made me look like something from the second-hand store. One rainy night she left me on the stone bench in f r o n t of Graves. In the morning I looked as battlescarred as "The History of the French Revolution."

What's

the matter

with

Tri-Alpha ? It's all right!! What's all r i g h t ? TRI-ALPHA!!! No truer words were ever written. Proof? Capacity membership and a fine attendance at our regular Friday meetings. With our newly elected president, Richard Hine, officiating, we opened our Tri-Alpha meeting with a gala quarter hour of song. T h e r e a f t e r Alan Staver offered prayer, and as the meeting proceeded the serious and humor papers were read respectively by R o b e r t "Ace" Schuller and Eugene Van Tammellan. The highlight of the evening was the rendering of classical and popular music by the accomplished pianist. Miss Betty Van Lente. As our members are always ready for action, tentative plans have been made for Inter-class six-man touch football games. These games are to be played during the waning hours of an afternoon, preferably 4-() P. M. Fridays. Further notice will be given concerning the same as these plans materialize. Also a committee was appointed and plans are being formulated for initiation of our new members. Watch for evidences of the same! Our meeting closed with high hopes for a successful, joyous year, and we extend greetings and best wishes to the societies of the feminine populus of Hope College. started the program with "Salutations," a bit of verbal welcome and concluded with a few pointers to the freshman on what is expected of their future conduct. "Inspirations" by Doris Fredricks was followed by "Glorification," a very beautifully written character sketch of a girl each Sorosite strives to be. A newly discovered trio composed of Rozanne Atkins, Elaine Bielefeld and Dorothy Atkins gave out with a very good rendition of "The Belts of St. Mary." "Assininity" was rendered by Jody (nuff said I. 1 rue to tradition the freshmen pledges had to put on a skit and true to tradition, it was good. Joyce Sibley led in the singing of "The Growth of an Acorn" (never knew it made so much noise). A f t e r the vocal introduction actions were put to the words by Carol Jean Hermance. Talent ran thick and laughter high, especially at the end, when Dorothy Boot as the girl and Mary Lou Williams as a boy met in fond embrace. "Demitasse" was served by the sophomores (for the last time) during which the pledges were given yellow roses, wooden gold painted Sigma Sigma crescents and the traditional Sigma Sigma hats to be worn for a few weeks. Finally the whole sorority moved from Voorhees basement to Keefer's Restaurant where Pepsi Cola was served to all by efficient Sorosites whereupon a toast was given. Hail to Sorosis. A perfect ending to a perfect day.

Well, Hops University is once more in full swing — and I do mean swing. Isn't it nice to hear music from the Commons Room in pshch classes? . . . The dorm girls like Prof's classes, too. He keeps them up to date on the menus f o r the week. Last week he threw in some cooking hints for the ladies and Dick Hine. I line likes lemon with his spinich, but Prof says lemons are high. And the Koffee Kletz — what an institution. You can have breakfast between classes if you time it right —ask Elsie Parsons . . . Then came Brandli, who had too many classes and had to t a k e his roll with him. The problem was should he take big bites and not so many, or smaller ones and keep his fingers sticky longer? . . . Speaking of apple polishing, who does that slick job on those apples in the Kletz? . . . A great time was had by all during silent period. Somebody drew a chalk line down the middle of the room and one pair of roommates sat back to back at opposite tables.

You know the fire escape — you go down and around and come out here. I forgot I was on third floor and when I passed the second floor lights 1 thought I had missed my station, but no — I finally hit bottom. Somebody pulled me out, slapped a wet towel across my face and yelled—"No talking" . . . Well, at least it's over till the next time.

Several old F r a t e r s were home from the service last week. The highlight of their furloughs and 'eaves was undoubtedly that beach party we've heard so much about. Ensign Ken de Groot led the crowd to his favorite spot in the dunes overlooking the beach. Pfc.
