Welcome On Saturday, Hope's campus will be the scene of the Collcga Homecoming for 1949. Intermingled with the regular members of the college classes of 1950, '51, '52, and '53, there will be class members of years gone by. These former Hopeites will be returning to spend the day at college functions on and off campus. To all you returning alumni, we wish to extend a hearty WELCOME BACK!! Perhaps some of you will find old classmates and have a grand time remembering and reminiscing about old times when Hope College was your main interest in life. We hope for a few hours you may recapture that interest and enjoy doing so. Many of you graduates who have been absent for some years will find today's campus a f a r cry f r o m the Hope College as it was during your college days. Perhaps some of you will look about and say wonderingly, "This isn't the Hope College I knew." And maybe it isn't, at least as f a r as material things are concerned, but underneath

thought I'd stop a few (not faces, I mean Freshmen) and interview them on their Green Outlook of the Campus. Phylis Heidanus, Kalamazoo coed, remarked, "I love Hope — never a dull moment; not a minute to get lonely; not a minute to sleep. The only thing I don't like is the fact that the pots shrink in the rain and make blisters on our ears." For next year she suggests that all frosh have pots like the fellows. Marjorie Pickens from China thinks this is a pretty friendly place. "So far I haven't found anything wrong with it. I like the extra-curricular activities."

Where's The Spirit? All of us have noticed the serious lack of spirit displayed at the recent football games. Everyone seems to complain about it, but does everyone try to do something about it? Remember the pep rally we had in f r o n t of the gym preceding our first game of the season ? The student council and the cheer leaders tried very hard to get out a large group of students, but the few that did get there showed very little pep. At the games it is the same way. Certainly the least we can do for our team, which is fighting its way toward a goal, is to really let them know we're solidly behind them. Doesn't it make you a little embarrassed, esecially if you're an upperclassman, when you still don't know the cheers, particularly the final yell of one of the favorite cheers? It certainly wouldn't take much time to make sure you know the cheers perfectly, and then to yell them. A thousand students could really let the other team know that Hope is right behind its own team. A little enthusiastic yelling not only helps the team, but the cheerleaders too. How do you think they feel when they start to lead a cheer and get no response? Rather embarrassing. Tomorrow is really a big day in the season. Our fellows will really need your spirit as well as theirs to trounce Hillsdale. Let's show the alumni that we have as much and more spirit than they ever evidenced themselves. Remember, Hope can't have pep unless each one of us takes his part in every cheer, whether we're winning or losing. N. H. V.

the Academy, reads a report of the charity g i f t s which were received during the last school year from the academy's sister college, Hope college, Holland, Mich., U.S.A. It is called to remembrance how — a f t e r the terrible destructions and devastations of the Second World War — the love of our Christian brethren from beyond the ocean was turned towards us and, in the course of years, how many generous indications of their love and friendship to us have been expressed and in what touching ways. Besides the spiritual links, lasting threads of true Christian brotherhood have been woven between the professors and students of the two colleges. In their prayers for each other, in their work and services of the same character and in their faithfulness to the cause of the Reformed Christian Church education — they have indeed become sister colleges. The governors, professors, and students of Hope college, Holland, by the now innumerable demonstrations of their love and charity to us, have g r e a t l y s t r e n g t h e n e d our 418-year-old Academy in her endeavour also to be and remain a college of hope in Christ. Their brotherly love and unselfishness to us have given us an entirely new experience of the reality of Christian brotherhood, teaching us the real meaning of the true Christian life, increasing our love to, and responsibility for, others, filling our hearts with joyfulness and making us more and more grateful to our Father. In this torn and shattered world of mankind, they have, indeed, given us a new manifestation of how great and powerful the Christian solidarity is and how much greater and more powerful it might be.

Constitution

The list of the generous g i f t s received f r o m our brethren in f a i t h in America is still f a r f r o m being complete. Besides the spiritual ana material help given to us, they have done their best to provide us with nourishment f o r the mind as well. Here, first of all, those theological books are to be mentioned which have been arriving in a long line of small parcels and the total number of which comes to several hundred by now. They include many of the standard books by the best Reformed Church theologians and valuable series of old and new Biblical Commentaries as well. These books, no doubt, will be of immense nelp to us in enriching and deepening our own theology and our Christian educational work on the whole. The books are the g i f t s of the Holland-Zeeland Classis of the Christian Reformed Church. The Rector of the Academy proposes the motion t h a t the Governing Council in its proceedings of the present meeting shall commemorate, with g r a t e f u l acknowledgement, the charity rendered to the academy during the last school year by the people of our sister institution, Hope college, and acting on their initiative and following their example, by other Christian bodies and individuals as well. With grateful feelings do the Governing Council hear the report of the Rector of the Academy about the great and valuable support—spiritual and material—rendered again to the academy by her sister institute, Hope college, Holland, and by the shining example of the same college, and all brethren in the Lord Jesus, Christ. In their response, the Board of Councillors turn their thoughts first of all to God and give thanks to Him, saying with the Psalmist, "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits." (Psalm 103:1-2) — T h e Academy's Governing Council see, above all, the signs of God's grace and loving-kindness in those g i f t s which He, through the charity of our brethren in faith from beyond the ocean, has sent to the Academy for the mitigation and alleviation of her spiritual and material needs. These g i f t s have meant, f o r many people, an escape f r o m misery, a visible growth in the Christian f a i t h , hope and love, and, in many cases, they have even meant the saving of human lives. The people of Hope college, Holland, and the people of the Reformed Church Academy, Sarospatak, are one in Christ. They form a common fellowship and together, as fellow-workers, praise God's glory, the Heavenly F a t h e r ' s everlasting love and benevolence. The Governing Councillors of the Academy humble themselves before the Almighty and thank Him, the sole Head and Lord of the Church, that, in the mirror of th.ese charitable services the people of both colleges could again perceive the miraculous reality of the one body of Christ, the unity of the saints. The Governing Councillors bless God, the Holy Trinity, that, at a time when f a i t h and hope have been on trial amidst indigencies. He has made us feel His comfort through our brethren in faith. The Governing Council send their warm thanks and gratitude to all those who in the service of God's glory have initiated and, sparing neither trouble nor pains, organized and executed this great charity work which has surpassed all imagination. In their thanks they especially wish to remember the Board of Trustees and the Staff and the Student Body of Hope College. They feel, first of all, greatly obliged to President Lubbers, under whose kind patronage the charity work was organized, and to Professor Osterhaven, the originator of the whole charity campaign and its most ardent promoter ever since. They feel also much indebted to all the students of the college who did the arduous task of canvassing for the campaign and of collecting and packing the gift articles. And last, but not least, they say "thank you and God bless you" to all known and unknown brethren in faith who through their praying and giving have contributed to the munificent gifts received. The Governing Council, at the same time, gratefully acknowledge the receipt of the theological books sent to the academy by the Holland-Zeeland Classis of the Christian Reformed Church and thank them wholeheartedly for their most valuable gifts. The Governing Council of the Reformed Church Academy at

Clothing Parcels Sent From Hope Dr. M. Eugene Osterhaven, College Pastor, announced recently t h a t sixty parcels of clothing were sent from Hope college, on the weekends of October 1 and 8, to needy students a t the Sarospatak academy in H u n g a r y . The Sarospatak project, which has resulted in the close union between Hope college and the Sarospatak academy, has now been expanded to a committee representing the Reformed Churches of the Synod of Chicago; it has received the endorsement of and aid from the Classes of the Synods of Chicago and Iowa. Some of the f u n d s received f r o m these church areas are going to be used in Sarospatak to rebuild the dormitory of the theological school there. Dr. Osterhaven has learned t h a t four years of study of the Russian language in the Sarospatak Reformed Academy is now required by the Hungarian government. This fact succinctly indicates the nature of the political situation in Hungary.

Awcact A f t e r several weeks of restless activity, students and faculty are hitting their stride. As the autumn colors deepen, the well-oiled machine of learning runs smoothly, and we more on to answer the challenge of another school year. " T h u d " ' . .-. Can it be that the English we are learning now will be obsolete before we are much older? Gadzooks and forsooth! To the teenagers the country over who are rapidly developing the full-fledged language on their own, the possibility of such a happening is not too remote. It's a " f r i p " (lousy) deal, but we "ooks" (sad squares) will have to "fall flat on our faces five times," and stop being "creeps," and "sizzles" (anything f r o m a creep to a show-off). So ' ^ h u d , " (new version of drop dead, or what have you) and get hep . . . A meager quorum . . . "We do not have a quorum present," cried the speaker, and the voting was postponed until a later date. Only one-fifth of the Senior Class was present a t a Senior class meeting. Lack of class cooperation is an old, old story with us, and not having a quorum present is an ordinary state of affairs. A f t e r three years of rest, it would seem t h a t everyone would have energy to burn this last year, and would make it a point to be at class meetings. In a f e w years, the government of the country will be in the hands of this same group of people. Will we do a better job then, or will everything else come first? I wonder . . . "Open Season" . . . It has been open season for frats and sororities these past few weeks. As in other years, any decoy that would bag game has been used — all the old tricks and a f e w new ones too. Back-slapping and "ye olde fellowship," are the rule until rushing season ends. Then the friendly, smiling upper-classman becomes a grinning ogre to the unhappy pledge. But don't give up pledges, it's a battle well worth fighting. Being a member of a sorority or fraternity on Hope's campus can be a source of great pleasure, and a rich, rewarding experience. It has been in the past, and if superficiality and antidemocratic elements are ruled out as they always have been at Hope, it will continue to be so in the future . . .

Sarospatak turn to the Word of God in sending their blessing to the whole community of Hope college, Holland, and to all the congregations which are in the fellowship of faith and work with her. "He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will He pay him again." (Proverbs 19:17). May God guard and shield the people of Hope college and may He guide them in such a way that His promised grace shall be fulfilled upon them! In witness of the authenticity of the above extract: Barnabas N a g y (Dr. Barnabas Nagy) Rector of the Reformed Church Academy at Sarospatak, Hungary.

Statesman Scenes At Traditional All-College Mixer Netherlands Speaks to IRC, Faculty

A special convocation of Hope college was held at 8 p.m. on October 12, at which His Excellency Dr. Eelco N. van Kleffens was presented with an honorary Doctor of Laws Degree f r o m Hope College. A f t e r the presentation of the Netherlands Ambassador by the Honorable Wynand Wichers, LL.D., Vicepresident of Western Michigan College of Education, President Irwin J . Lubbers of Hope College coivf e r r e d the degree. Dr. van Kleffens then addressed the a s s e m b l y , speaking about the United Nations organization from the point of view of the Netherlands and the smaller nations. He stated that there were three criteria which the smaller nations used in judging the UN. Is the UN impartial; is the UN efficient; and is the UN an organization in which the smaller nations can trust ? Citing many cases that had come up before the Security Council, the Ambassador felt t h a t although the smaller nations had been pleasantly surprised a number of times, these criteria had not been reached. Ho stated t h a t law is the only objective standard in public relations and only safeguard of citizens. When the UN begins to use arbit r a r y power, it spells its own disintegration. The UN must abide by the charter. Improvements must be made. The veto which defends the veto must be amended. Dr. van Kleffens deplored the tendency of UN nations to form blocks and to use the UN as a weapon in diplomacy to attack opponents. His. complaints do not have their origin in the charter, but in the shortsightedness of individual governments. His Excellency felt that it was much better to be critical of the UN now and hot pretend everyt h i n g is all right. America should work for the UN in a constructive way, realizing its shortcomings. Dr. van Kleffens looked upon the Hope College Anchor as a symbol of faith, part of which is due regard f o r the individual and the state. In closing, the Ambassador said, " T h e r e is yet a chance; if we hold f a s t to our ideals and work with perspicacity, all will be well with the UN." An academic procession of Hope College faculty and the senior class preceded the convocation. Mrs. Claus J . Bushouse sang the Netherlands national anthem, "Wilhelmus," followed by

EMERSONIAN

It is generally believed that Cosmo Bill MacKay was master critic of the evening, although some still think he gave a humor paper. The formal meeting was dismissed and the cigars were lit. The windows were thrown up, and once again the tune of "Red River Valley" echoed down 8th Street.

The Emmie rushing season came to a climactic and successful halt with the activities of last weekend. These activities included a Stag on Friday night and a Barn Dance on Saturday night. All those who attended these meetings were thoroughly satisfied with the fine entertainment and refreshments. Now the Emersonian brothers are exerting all their time and talents in an effort to make this year's Homecoming one of the most successful in years. There will be much gay activity as the Emersonian Alumni return to make new acquaintances and renew others in the warm and friendly atmosphere of the F r a t room. The room will be opened immediately a f t e r the Homecoming parade and will remain open until game time. Coffee and sandwiches will be served when the room is reopened a f t e r the Hope-Hillsdale tilt in the afternoon. The Emmie Float is still a big secret, but it is felt by all the men that it will be one of the finest to enter the parade on Saturday morning. Thus, once again, the Emmies are joining their forces and are getting 100% behind Homecoming to make it a real success.

FRATERNAL

Phi Kappa Alpha held their last literary meeting on Thursday, October 6. Cosmo President, Bill Jellema, opened the meeting with a welcome to all guests. Cosmo Bill Laughlin presented a serious paper on the subject, "How the United Nations Works f o r You." Cosmo Ed Stetson, newly elected chorus director, led the group in some favorite songs, including, of course, "Red River Valley." The Sour Seven, an outstanding group of singers, composed of John Tien, Harlin Failor, Bob Stoppels, Paul Kranendonk, Bill Jellema, Bob Kranendonk, and Myron Hermance, e n t e r t a i n e d (in one way or another) the boys f o r the musical side of the evening. Following this, "You Tell Me Your Dreams" was harmoniously presented by a quartet made up of Bob Kranendonk, Harlin Failor, Ed Stetson, and Paul Kranendonk.

The Arcadians held their second rushing meeting last Friday night under the direction of President Harvey Moes. Chaplain of the evening, Keith De Jong, led in devotions. Arcadians and their guests were spirited by songs which Ken Leestma led. Brother Bill Miedema bashfully lent his golden voice for the occasion.

F r a t e r s wish to welcome all their alumni and invite them to the activities planned for them. On October 6, a Fraternal meeting opened informally at Castle Park. Games were played a f t e r which F r a t e r s and guests enjoyed sweet corn, and wieners, served by F r a t e r s Lumsden, Slikkers, and Workman. The formal meeting was called to order at the F r a t e r Room by President Paul Hendrickson. F r a t e r Oosterbaan o p e n e d the meeting with prayer. F r a t e r Zwemer then led F r a t e r s and the guests through a bit of harmonizing, with ice cream in between.

Morrette L. Rider Spends Summer At Tanglewood This past summer Professor Morrette L. Rider of Hope College's music department was among the comparatively few musicians who' are enabled to study each summer at Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. Mr. Rider concentrated in the study of orchestral conducting under the direct tutelage of both Dr. Serge Koussevitzky, recently retired a s permanent conductor of the Boston Symphony organization, and Leonard Bernstein, well known conductor and composer. He also received instruction in composition f r o m Aaron Copland, possibly the highest regarded of all contemporary American composers. The summer instruction at Tanglewood lasted six weeks and consisted largely of lectures and concert attendance and practice work. The courses of instruction are offered purely f o r personal betterment and result in no academic credit for the student. The whole atmosphere and organization .is very informal. The student may attend any class or lecture at any time, or he need not attend at all. Tanglewood a t t r a c t s students and visitors from all parts of the world. Mr. Rider was r a t h e r surprised that of the first several people he encountered a f t e r his arrival, only a few were able to speak English. Among the well-known musicians he met at Tanglewood were Gregor Piatagorsky, 'cellist; Jascha Hei-

The f r a t e r n i t y , a t present, is busily engaged with rushing activities. A f t e r the Homecoming game, a lunch and get-together will be held f o r Alumni and members in the Knick club room in the Wool worth building.

ADD is an organization seldom heard about. It's a group called the Athletic Debt Diggers — girls who work at games and do some of the little things that make Hope College a better, richer school. The girls sell candy and coffee at the football and basketball games and then use their profits to the betterment of the school. There are fifteen girls in the group, now t h a t the ten new members have received their sweaters and emblems. This past year, their profit fund went into buying one amplifier now located in temple dining hall. The girls want all the students to know t h a t the amplifier is portable and is at the disposal of all campus groups. The clubs and committees should contact Mr. Visscher if they wish to use it. The ADD girls suggest t h a t it be used f o r the pep rally, and kangaroo court sessions.

Before and a f t e r the session at Tanglewood both Mr. and Mrs. Rider toured throughout New England and spent several days in Provincetown on Cape Cod. They were much impressed with the beauty of the Berkshires and the towns of Lennox, Stockbridge and Pittsfield, near by Tanglewood. During their stay at Tanglewood Overture to an Unwritten Opera," by Don Gillis, and later in the year a work by Stephen Parks, another of these was devoted to contemporary American music, which Dr. Koussevitzky has always championed. Mr. Rider is doing the same thing here at Hope in his work with the orchestra. On the first program will be "A Short of Mr. Rider's fellow students at Tanglewood, will be presented.

A r t u r Rodzinsky was one of Mr. Rider's "classmates" f o r a while, and Seymour Lipkin, young Detroit pianist who recently won the Rachmaninoff Award, was another. Admission to study a t Tanglewood is very difficult to obtain and is determined largely by the recommendation of established and recognized musicians and the evidence of work already accomplished in the student's particular field. Mr. Rider had the recommendation of Thor Johnson of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and his excellent work with the Hope College band and orchestra to attest to his merit.

Although Adrian's Bulldogs succeeded in cracking Hope's goal line f o r the first time this season, the Hollanders came through for the second MIAA victory of the season with a 27-14 victory.

Well, it's been a n o t h e r one of t h o s e d a y s — woke up t h i s m o r n i n g and reached f o r a c i g a r e t , g r a b b i n g instead a sheet of f l y - p a p e r that I'd l e f t f o r my b u t - b u m m i n g buddies; stumbled over to t h e sink and brushed my t e e t h ( t h o u g h t it tasted f u n n y — s e e m s the s h a v i n g cream got mixed up w i t h the tooth p a s t e ) ; w e n t to chapel and f o u n d t h a t the' leader f o r the day had had the a u d a c i t y to s t a r t without w a i t i n g f o r me. W h a t ' s all t h i s got to do with s p o r t s ? Not much, but we do have to fill this column, so be p a t i e n t . The g r e a t e s t t r a g e d y of t h e day \ \ a s finding t h a t t h e mail table was bare a s f a r as copiable m a t e r i a l f r o m t h e usually obliging M I A A publicity directors is concerned. T h e fulli implication of t h i s g r e a t m i s f o r t u n e struck me about an h o u r l a t e r in a first hour class, when I m u t t e r e d aloud a t a most i n a p p r o p r i a t e time, "Well, you're on your own t o d a y . " And so h e r e we are, no sports, no news, j u s t a line of g a b . (You're^ on the w r o n g side of the p a g e f r o s h ; the w o m e n ' s s p o r t s are in column one). Before continuing with t h i s line of m a l a r k y , t h e r e is one serious problem t h a t I would like to p r e s e n t to the c h a m b e r of commerce or whoever is in c h a r g e of seeing t h a t t h e p r e s s box a t Riverview Park r e t a i n s its l o f t y position. If s p e c t a t o r s in the s t a n d s continue to s t a m p their f e e t a s they did a t a recent high school g a m e , you will have left one b e a u t i f u l pile of kindling wood. A s we see it, t h e r e a r e t h r e e a l t e r natives: one, stop the s t a m p i n g ; two, reinforce the p r e s s box; three, f u r n i s h the w o r k i n g p r e s s with p a r a c h u t e s in order t h a t a t least their lives may be s p a r e d . T h i n g s a r e rough all over I guess. Noticed Dean H i n g a hobbling around a little more uncertainly t h a n usual the o t h e r day. He wouldn't a d m i t t h a t he'd been m i s t a k e n f o r a F r e s h m a n — said he pulled a ligament while officiating a high school football g a m e . While we're on the subject of officiating, it seems a d o w n r i g h t s h a m e t h a t you have to be a history prof in order to get a job a s a referee. You don't believe i t ? How about V a n d e r b u s h , H i n g a , and Visser. Checking the record we find t h a t Hope's only football championship was in 1934 — a tie a t t h a t . Wonder w h a t a "Glory D a y " is really like? Sleep until noon — a f t e r chapel. S u r e could use some sleep, so let's t u r n out f o r these pep rallies and m a k e a little noise. (If t h a t last sentence doesn't make sense, it j u s t goes to show w h a t b u r n i n g the midn i g h t oil can do). Mixed in with last week's mail was a request f r o m t h e Green Bay ackers to send a list of Hope p l a y e r s and the class t o which they aelong to " h e l p us avoid d r a f t i n g p l a y e r s who still have college eligi)ility left." A check with the Dean's office revealed t h a t it wouldn't be necessary to send t h e list — " A football p l a y e r who's eligible," said Dean Hollenbach, " W h a t ' s t h a t ? "

We may be prejudiced in f a v o r of certain athletic squads, b u t not to the extent t h a t we've been payed a t r i b u t e such a s t h a t which was bestowed upon a noted G r a n d Rapids s p o r t s editor recently. T h i s gentleman, who had been accused of f a v o r i n g Michigan over N o t r e D a m e in the battle of w o r d s t h a t has been r a g i n g f o r t h e p a s t couple of years, was s u r p r i s e d to find on his desk following A r m y ' s t h u m p i n g of PA the U of M a b e a u t i f u l bouquet of lilies and a card b e a r i n g the following c o m m e n t : " W i t h deepest s y m p a t h y . A r m y 21, Michigan 7, f r o m the 0 Votre Dame club of G r a n d Rapids a n d W e s t e r n Michigan." 14 In conclusion, may we offer the following l i t e r a r y m a s t e r p i e c e writ34 en by Anonymous, whoever he is: 35 I think t h a t I shall never see 47 A satisfactory referee 46 A b o u t whose head a halo shines. Whose m e r i t s r a t e r e p o r t e r s ' lines; One who calls them a s t h e y a r e And not a s I should w i s h by f a r ; A g e n t who leans not e i t h e r way, But lets the boys decide the p l a y ; A g u y who'll s t i n g t h e coach who yaps F r o m Siwash Hi or old Millsaps; P o e m s a r e m a d e by fools like me. But only you could r e f e r e e .

In a t r i a n g u l a r meet a t A d r i a n , Hope's H a r r i e r s defeated Toledo U n i v e r s i t y and A d r i a n , with respective scores of 25, 46, and 59. Scored a s a dual meet f o r MIAA records, Hope defeated A d r i a n , 19 to 41.
