In 1937 the first Homecoming Queen, Miss Marjory Moody, w a s crowned. Homecomings didn't always occur every year. Yet the limited n u m b e r of men during World War II didn't h a m p e r the Homecoming spirit in 1944. The g a m e that year was a touch-football g a m e , both t e a m s consisting of Hope College coeds.

During the 37 i n t e r v e n i n g y e a r s between this Homecoming and the first, Hope has c h a n g e d its f a c e considerably.

Enigmas of Education A nswered by Cassidy Last

October 22, 19fi5

Hope College, Holland, Michigan

Tuesday,

Dr.

Harold

G.

Cassidy, professor of chemistry at Yale University, spoke to a small audience in Dimnent Chapel on the subject, "The Intellectual Structure of a College." He gave his answers to the problem of diversity of disciplines in modern education In a college such as Hope, he said, where 40 s e m e s t e r courses must be chosen f r o m a total of over 300 offered, it is most difficult for a student to decide among them. However, there a r e relationships between the various disciplines which m a k e the diversity less forbidding, and it was the effort of the speech to schematically define these relationships. All academic disciplines, said Dr. Cassidy, fall into a continuum, which can be graphically represented on a circle, one semicircle devoted to the humanities, morg ing gradually into the sciences, which occupy the other semicircle. This circular arrangement was not to imply any opposition of sciences to humanities, but only a difference. However, he said, this does not represent t h e totality of the scheme. Within each discipline, there are three basic activities: Data gathering, synthesis, and application to practice. The first is, of course, necessary before any study can begin. The second must occur if we expect to e a r n anything

from the facts we have gathered, because our knowledge is based on lelationships of facts. Moreover, he said, humans a r e by nature pattern - forming creatures. The third activity is that which m a k e s our knowledge meaningful and useful. In a second d i a g r a m . Dr. Cassidy placed the previous circle on the circumference of a sphere, as the equator is to the e a r t h . Thus each discipline was represented no longer as a plane segment of a circle but as a wedge-shaped segment of a sphere. At the top of the segment, he placed philosophies of the discipline, in the middle, theoretical disciplines and at the bottom. technologies. Theoretical disciplines involve the activities of data-gathering and synthesis, philosophies involve synthesis and technologies involve application to practice. With this, the scheme of relationships was complete. When we understand these relationships, he observed, we have the advantages of being able to respect students of disciplines other than our own. to avoid academic arrogance and to replace ourselves in a connected whole. Student Assemblies Committee chairman David Grissen announced late this week that there would be no assembly next Tuesday due to a previous reservation of the chapel by an outside group.

Conference Views Structure "Modern society is reflected on a smaller scale in c a m p u s life at Hope. The Leadership Conference has m a d e an important stride forward toward the preparation of the attending freshmen for their later lives as well as toward the improvement of campus organizations. The conference was a valuable experience and should be continued, perhaps even on a larger scale." With these words, f r e s h m a n president Norm Gibson s u m m a r ized the basic feelings of the f r e s h m e n attending the first annual Student Leadership Conference last Saturday. Established as an outgrowth of an analysis of f r e s h m a n orientation m a d e last year, the conference was organized to acquaint new students with the m a j o r campus organizations and their leaders Through awareness of the opportunities for involvement and leadership on campus, the freshman is encouraged to participate in the various student organizations. Originally an idea of the National Student Association, the project was taken up by the Student Senale. President Wes Michaelson appointed Menno Kraai to head a special subcommittee and the concept b e c a m e a reality this year. The conference began in Durfee Hall with a luncheon banquet. The assembled students, about 70 freshmen and upperclass leaders, were addressed by Rev. HillegomK Dick Shiels and Wes Michaelson The general theme of the talks was " P u r p o s e and Involvement " In a dialogue between Hillegonds and Shiels, the college chaplain commented on the relationship between academic pursuits and ext r a c u r r i c u l a r activities. He emphasized the importance of the latter by noting that "you express in involvement what is impressed upon you in the c l a s s r o o m . " F r o m Durfee. the conference was dismissed to small informal discussion groups led by the leaders of nine of the m a j o r organizations. Those represented were AWS, IFC, Pan Hel, IRC, NSA, the Student Court, the Student Senate. WTAS, SCA and the anchor. The new students were able to attend wh ; chever three sessions most interested them. During the seminar-

Each person attending was asked to fill out questionnaires evaluating the conference. The enthusiasm of the freshmen was evident as 100 percent indicated that they ftlt the conference was worthwhile and that they had gained a definite benefit from it. Most felt they could apply quite a bit of what they had learned to future activities. Constructive criticism of the conference fell into three categories; some felt the meeting should have been held at a different time, perhaps during orientation; others thought that there should have !>een an opportunity to attend more discussion groups if desired: and some believed that more f r e s h m e n should have attended, criticizing the handling of the conference's publicity. There is a quantitative shortage of leadership in the organizations on campus. Too often the major tasks a r e performed by the same people in every group. The great benefit which can be derived from such activity is lost by the vast m a j o r i t y of students at Hope. In the words of Menno Kraai, " ther q is a great unutilized potential

among the upperclassmen at Hope. The conference is an attempt to a \ o i d this waste of ideas, talents, and enthusiasm of the new freshman c l a s s . " The general concensus of c a m p u s leadership, administration and freshmen w a s that the Student Leadership Conference was a step in the right direction in solving this problem. Although the conference as a whole was successful this year, changes and improvements are ali c a d y being contemplated for next year Relatively few f r e s h m e n at tended and Kraai attributed ihot to a failure in publicity. Many were u n a w a r e that jr. enthusiasm for and interest in c a m p u s life ivas the only invitation needed—that it was open to all. A solution to this problem will likely be found next year when many a r e proposing an expansion of the conference to the entire f r e s h m a n class and perhaps the entire school. Another idea involves its removal from c a m p u s to such a site as C a m p Geneva, where leadership from every organization would have the opportunity to hold discussion groups in order to better interg r a t e all students into the life of the Hope "caT^jnis.

The float them es are limited to the turn of the 19th to 20th century in conjunction with t h e football g a m e Saturday afernoon. The Alpha Phi's "Bottle The Scots" is a theme displaying a l a r g e bottle of scotch in the football field. The Arcadians' "Walk Softly But—" portrays a Hope football player stomping a "Big Stick."

" P a r e n t s of our students invest a m i n i m u m of $1700 per year, but more important, t h e y entrust us with the education of their children. They have a right to know our school and meet our fine t e a c h e r s . " With this in mind, activities for the weekend of Nov. 5 and 6 will begin on F r i d a y morning with open classes. This is an innovation enabling parents to visit classes in session. There will be an information booth in the P i n e Grove to direct parents to the classes of their son or daughter. F r i d a y evening a choral d r a m a "Circle Beyond F e a r " and two one-act plays. "A Very Cold N i g h t " and "Saint Felix and His Potatoes." directed by J a m e s Malcolm, will be presented at 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. in the Little Theater. Admission is free and it is open to all students as well as parents. On Saturday, parents m a y meet with t e a c h e r s in their offices from 9:30 a . m . until 11 a.m. Lunch will be served at Phelps from 11 a.m. to 1 p . m . , and meal tickets will be sold in the line. Admission to the football game at 2 p . m . will be free for p a r e n t s accompanied by students. P a r e n t s of the players will sit in a special section where t h e y will w e a r their sons' football n u m b e r and t h e mothers will be given m u m s .

T h e r e will also be open house held in all d o r m s from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Dinner will be served from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Phelps. The weekend will close with a variety show Saturday night, to be presented twice in Snow Auditorium; once at 7:30 p.m. and again at 9 p.m. Since this event is in support of the Student Social-CuJtural Center F u n d , admission of $.50 per person will be c h a r g e d at the door. Corsages and tickets for the Saturday evening meal can be ordered during the last week in October. Sign up sheets will be post-" ed in the d o r m s . Several students a r e working on the weekend, including Helen and Louise VerHoek who a r e in charge of correspondence, Mary Van Pernis handling publjicity, Hoy Anchor and Ellen Oosterhaven setting up the parent-faculty meetings, J a n Thompson in charge of the two Slater meals and Peg Welmers and Dennis J o n e s organizing the variety show. • Dr. VanderWerf praised weekend co-chairmen Bob Dahl and Ruth Meyer for " a n outstanding job."

The Student Entertainment Series will present Randy Spark's Back Porch Majority, in concert, at the Holland Civic Center, November 1 at 7:30 p.m.

Judging will take place in front of the Warm Friend Hotel during the p a r a d e and while the floats are on display at Riverview P a r k . According to p a r a d e co-chairmen Chuck Walvoord and Shirley Van Haalte. the judging is based on originality and construction. The winners will be announced at the football half-time.

This group of four men and three women was originally formed • to provide talent for the New Christy Minstrels: however, a p p e a r a n c e s on the J o h n n y Carson Show and other network television shows have met with such enthusiasm that the Majority Ls now being acclaimed as the group with the brightest f u t u r e among the folk singing

Greto Garbo, Robert Taylor and Lionel B a r r y m o r e have the starring roles with George Cukor as director.

Losing the Pre-med Image botany or field biology as well. The d e p a r t m e n t had been faced for much of its life with a plethora of general students but managed to keep up with the growing numbers by being the first to extensively go into double sections and by adjusting schedules and rearranging courses to take best advantage of too little space and equipment.

Editor's note: Dr. Philip Crook has been associate professor of biology and chairman on the department since 1955. Here he presents his allegorical accoimt of the growth of (he biology department. A article desribing recent developments In that department adjoins this column. By Dr. Philip Crook

Rich Uncle

P a r a b l e s seem to be popular in the anchor, so let's e m u l a t e at least the style by s a y i r ^ that once upon a time, twenty y e a r s ago to be axact. there were a Dutchman and a Scotsman teaching biology at a little college. With the passage of time the two b e c a m e seven, representing among themselves most of the m a j o r fields in biology. This was not an accident: they had been carefully chosen. They decided to limit their advanced courses to two or t h r e e in which they had special competence.

A new administration and much help f r o m an uncle ' n a m e d Sam) made a lot of badly needed equipment available, established m o r e in the way of research, and left the staff a little breathless and full of wonder at a possibly bright future ahead. Of course what was already a crowded building became m o r e crowded and fuses started to blow on overloaded electrical circuits, and office and research space b e c a m e m a t t e r s of great concern as well as where new staff was to come from and how students were to be transported into the field or to Florida during spring vacation. But then the people were at least reasonably young in heart, if not also in age.

With the g r e a t e r diversity represented on the staff, the d e p a r t m e n t started to lose its image as a prcmed mill (a very good one. by the way) and started sending m o r e than an occasional student into

'Illiberal' Liberal Disarmed By Lecturer Helen White i

and they were getting help f r o m all sorts of people, and most importantly they had a fine bunch of young people to teach, so somehow long hours, disappointments and frustrations seemed worthwhile. Now of course 1 can only react in a personal way to the present biology department at Hope. 1 hold my fellow staff m e m b e r s in high r e g a r d . They a r e genuinely concerned with giving the best and fullest education possible to the students who come to them and in a spirit of mutual respect. As to the future it is hard to know what it holds because change is inevitable and the right kind of change is necessary. Looking Ahead There are still many unmet needs nnd important decisions to be made. If somehow these changes can be made without altering what 1 can only call the emotional clim a t e of the department and college. we will have nothing to fear from the future. Lets see how the story started in this article reads after another twenty years.

Helen C. Whiie, scholar, author, lecturer and teacher presented to Hope's c a m p u s last week a living tradition both in her defense of the truly liberal education and in the wisdom and far-sightedness of her own learned views. The liberal education to which she first r e f e r r e d introduced an attack on the "illiberal d e f e n d e r s " of the liberal a r t s who cherish the value of the liberal a r t s to the exclusion of the sciences. Miss White stated. "It is silly to claim the priorty of one discipline over another." Miss White then commented on the difficulty of achieving the goal of a liberal education, that is. of going from any one field to any other. Recognizing either one has time only for fulfilling requirements or one feels restricted to gaining no knowledge above the obvious and elementary level. After reminding the representative of the liberal arts to beware of prejudice. Miss White pointed out his representative's responsiUlity to his field. Academic freedom for the artist of word or any other m e m b e r of the liberal a r t s field is becoming more and more

stifled in the present atmosphere. Due p e r h a p s to the realism, or what others term obscenity, of the few. for instance, the artist, critic, or scholar is prevented f r o m communicating m a n y of his ideas. The duty of the liberally educated man is to defend the artist's right to academic freedom. Only in maintaining this right will the artist work "wholeheartedly." F r e e time for the academician to study and write, as well as pensions are among the other rights which belong to representatives of the liberal arts. The connection of the liberally educated man to his world. Miss White stated, a p p e a r s also in his responsibility to translate contemporary m a t e r i a l s for the betterment ol his fellow m a n . Seeing reality, in addition, rem a i n s all-important in any discipline. Miss White explained, as the idealization of history can only prevent a c c u r a c y . Relating this specifically to her field of medieval and Renaissance literature. Miss White emphasized the importance of knowing the background ot the age in order to have a full understanding of the artist's expression of that period.

Not Quantity

Biology Dept. Seeks Depth "The biology department h a s been converted from a pre-medicine d e p a r t m e n t to a tri-partite p r o g r a m . " said d e p a r t m e n t chairm a n . Dr. Philip Crook in an in terview this week. Dr. Crook's pronouncement summarizes a progressive evolution which is occurring in the plant and animal science d e p a r t m e n t . For m a n y y e a r s the biology faculty existed for the benefit 1 of premedicine students. Today, hoiwever, with the g r e a t e r availability of grants for equipment and research and the growing student body, Dr. Crook and the biology personnel ase fulfilling t h e need and the opportunity to expand their program. Faculty Not Naive Realizing that an expanded department with additional courses, equipment and teachers does not insure a corresponding increase in educational quality, the biology faculty have m e t the challenge

to excellence by concentrating on teaching courses in those a r e a s where they are most competent. "This insures that they will be good courses." said Dr. Crook.

c h a m b e r s have bolstered experimental courses. The growth chambers were acquired with a matching grant from the National Science Foundation.

Dr. Crook explained that "the present aim is to preserve the quality of our pre-medicine courses and add to them, work in field biology and botany." These two a r e a s a r e receiving special attention now. Efforts a r e being m a d e to recruit new specialized personnel in botany and zoology. A call for a plant physiologist has been answered by three applicants. "It is our intention to have enough experts in specialized a r e a s to allow students opportunity for graduate work in these a r e a s , so that they may enter a technical field, such as wildlife m a n a g e m e n t , " said Dr. Crook.

Two experimental courses will be introduced into next s e m e s t e r ' s p r o g r a m . While the projected botany. section will be similar to the present general course, the zoology section will include an eighthour block of study in general zoology, bacteriology and genetics.

General Courses Broadened New facilities, such as the Hoebeke Greenhouse and two growth

Faculty Research Biological research, which adds to the instructor's ability as well as expanding m a n ' s biological knowledge, is being conducted by all m e m b e r s of the biology faculty except Dr. Crook. Dr. Norman Norton has been studying fossil pollens, and has written four papers on his findings. <Dr. Norton will describe his work in next week's anchor.) Eldon Greij has been studying native birds, while Paul Van Fassen is conducting an extensive study of the chromosome distribution in wild asters. Dr. Eva Van Schaak is studving the may apple fungus on a gr ant from the college. Using human brains from cadavors. Dr. Norman Rieck is making study preparations of brains. Dr. Allen Brady, presently away on a Danforth teaching fellowship, is studying spiders. All of the faculty except Dr. Van Schaak have students assisting them.

Film 'Waiting for Godot' Lacks Plot, Conclusion Editor's Note: Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" can be seen at 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Oct. 29 and 30. free of charge. Pt the Western Michigan University Theater. Rob Hecht (Hope, 1965) is in charge of lighting for this production. By Gordon Korstange The critics loved "Waiting for Godot" when it was first presented in 1953. T h e y loved it because it is an enigma. There is little plot, much symbolism and no conclusion. Like Edward Albee's "Tiny Alice." " G o d o t " is a personal message from the playwright which the spectator can interpret to his own liking. And as most critics a r e f r u s t r a t e d writers, they jump at a chance to read their own philosophies into a work. "Waiting for Godot" gives the critic an opportunity for a field day. The play opens with two t r a m p s who have spent several days loitering by a road, waiting for a man who has promised to help them but has not appeared. What that help is. the audience is never told. This m a n . this Godot, keeps sending word that he might come the next day. He never comes: he probably never will come. The t r a m p s seemingly know this, but they still wait and hope, argue and complain.

Twice during the play two men come. One is a top-hatted whipsnapping man named Pozzo. The other is an abject creature, the world slave. This slave is continually beaten by his m a s t e r and only utters one long tirade of near gibberish. Pozzo and his slave appear in the second act. but the slave is blind and his master is decrepit and senile. Meanwhile, the two t r a m p s wait, talk and hope. They are still waiting when the play ends. If Beckett's philosophy doesn't shine through in this play, his theater technique does. Using vaudeville slapstick and the theater of the a b s u r d ' s double talk, the two t r a m p s (played by Bert Lahr and E. G. Marshall in the original production' stumble through m a n y a small misadventure. The result is confusing, but the comedy is often hilarious. It has to be. for there is not plot to hold the viewer's attention. Sometimes the talk is of philosophy, sometimes of death. Two humans live and agonize together over life. Despair is the mood of the play. The t r a m p s ' lives have been voids, but they have taken the first step out of d a r k n e s s . Like Chekov's "Uncle V a n y a . " they must keep doing something. They must wait and hope that Godot comes; only this is certain.

Changeling

A Solitary Homecoming By Rob Werge Last y e a r at Homecoming I was sitting in Boone's eating a $.60 h a m b u r g e r steak. I was thinking that only two things could be eternal: death and the taste of Boone's h a m b u r g e r steak. Suddenly a bottle of ketchup splattered over my plate, rolled down the counter and onto the floor. It landed on a waitress's big toe. As that was her favorite toe, she began to whimper softly. Wheeling around to see where the object c a m e f r o m , an old bent figure c a m e into focus. (I wore contact lenses at the t i m e and had to make s u r e that the form wasn't just another eyelash.) An old man was stumbling over and apologizing for having missed me. Said he was bitter against students. Said he was in the Hope class of 1902 but just couldn't " m a k e chapel so early in t h e m o r n i n ' . " Said he was a drop-out. Said his n a m e was V a n d e r Pile. Ahha! H e r e was a chance to bring a houl back into the alumni fold. In a blurt of school spirit, patriotism and general religious fervor, I grasped his h a n d . But my sudden movement m a d e me fall off the counter stool, slide a good five feet atop the r e m a i n s of the ketchup bottle and crash (at this point I believe t h e r e was a loud t h u m p ) against the cash register. When consciousness was recovered (not that there was much to recover), I was walking back

towards c a m p u s with the old fellow. His white hair was long and stringy: clotheh were wrinkled and his voice cracked when he sang snatches of " B a t t l e Hymn of the Republic" and other nursery tunes. We passed the hulking steps of Graves. He stopped and sighed. "If you line all the students who ever sat here shoulder to shoulder, it would form a chain stretching all the way to Zeeland," he said wistfully. Unable to think of why anyone would want to line up to Zeeland, I just stood t h e r e and was em h a r a s s e d . Picking aside leaves with his scuffed shoes, he started off towards Phelps. "I r e m e m b e r we had the worst food system you ever seen. The food was like eating s t e a m and we waited and waited . . . But now it must be different?" I w a s about to say that (con trary to popular belief) t i m e does not heal all things, but we were suddenly engulfed into Phelps lounge. It was decorated in neochaos. J a m m e d with WELCOME ALUMNI signs, booths were set up and loaded with penants, stickers. jewelry, diapers, book-ends all proclaiming H O P E . " G e t your Hope matching p a j a m a s . . . something to r e m e m b e r college b y . " Students w e r e jingling coin-cans and shouting, " H a v e you contributed to MSFU (More Stuff F o r Us) yet?" A group of three alumni dowagers were comparing hats and

h u s b a n d ' s salaries. Groups of men stood around trying unsuccessfully to hold in their widened stomachs. Every third sentence began with " R e m e m b e r the t i m e . . . and ended with "I wonder what ever happened to Zelda Flatbush. She was always such a wild o n e . " The din was unbelievable. The old fellow was so dismayed that he c l a m m e r e d atop a chair and waved his a r m s wildly. 1 think he was shouting something like, "But you c a n ' t go h o m e again, you can't go home a g a i n . " In any case, he soon lost his balance and knocked over a tray of tutti-fruitti pastries which were shaped like the chapel. Still he went unnoticed and though I did see one w o m a n with pastry-crust affixed to her hair spray, she didn't seem too bothered. " G u e s s I'm just a failure all around h e r e . " " I t ' s all r i g h t , " I assured him. " S o m e of my best friends are drop-outs." We walked down to Russ' and shared a cheeseburger (I had the cheeseburger and he had the bun.) F r o m w h e r e we were, we could see the girls riding down Eighth Street on top of all this colored p a p e r and chicken wire. Said he h a d n ' t seen anything like it since the inauguration of Coolidge. When he left, he swiped a bottle of ketchup " t o even things o u t " and started to hitch hike. A car joon stopped. I think he was heading in the direction of Calvin.

al, or other media cannot go with* out facing either legal or extralegal consequences. But as long as this isn't crossed, an editor or writer can say anything—and they often have. T h e r e is little of the Stalinist demand for adherence to a "line" in the sense we usually imagine it. It is revealing that there a r e at least three publications in Yugoslavia—one in each of the three m a j o r cities—dedicated solely to humor, and often taking pretty good jabs at the latest government innovation. They a r e fully supported by the government and the P a r t y and the Ljubljana one at least is very popular. 'Construetive Criticism' Only It is quite different for one used to the Western tradition of freedom of the press to understand the nature of that "invisible line." The Yugoslavs express in different t e r m s : You can engage in "constructive c r i t i c i s m " but not "negative criticism." We have freedom to express political opinions: "But anything which crosses the "invisible line" is no longer regarded as political: " T h e n it is a m a t t e r of criminal law and not politics." What it finally boils down to isthe simple regulation that you can say anything as long as you don't attack the basic premise on which the society of Yugoslavia is founded, namely the "socialist democratic o r d e r . " A comparable anal ogy might be the basic premise m a d e at Hope College, the validity of the Christian religion. Attacking socialism in Yugoslavia would be like standing up in chapel and shouting that God doesn't exist; The ruling authority simply won't tolerate it. In both cases the nature of the society is such that challenging its basic assumption is equivalent to advocating the overthrow of the existing order Other Barriers There exist other barriers which prevent the development of a freewheeling. open and critical attitude on the part of the press. P r o b a b l y the most important of these is simply the tradition of the suppression which the nation on the whole has lived under in the early postwar years, and which existed when these Slavic nations were territories of other conquerors for centuries before the present one. Much of the machinery for suppression has been eliminated, but the mentality which adjusted to it has not been completely changed This is true of both the reading public and the journalists who must take the consequences for any errors in judgement. As a student journalist said to me the other day "The journalists think they have to be official, even when they don't have

DODU

to be." This mentality is perpetuated by cases in which persons or publications have crossed the "invisible line." A few y e a r s ago a flyby-night Slovenian journal, litera r y in approach but heavily loafed with political criticism was banned after its editors were warned by the officials of the Communist party. In the ensuing controversy. the University of Ljubljana weekly Tribuna b e c a m e involved by opposing the banning and three editors later resigned f r o m the party. Even more recently a writer was given a suspended sentence for writing articles critical of the Soviet Union, and his sentence was suspended seemingly b e c a u s e world-wide publicity centered on the case while the International Pen Congress was meeting in the country. Reason for Punishment It is important to recognize, though, that these cases a r e ones in which the criticism w a s both l itter and quite e x t r e m e . In short, the "invisible line" had been crossed, and those persons had en gaged in "destructive criticism " The existence of limitations is different from the demand that a " p a r t y line" be followed in every thing that is printed. Of the latter there is a minimum in Yugoslavia today. The qualitative difference should be noted, for it m a r k s the distinction between a Stalinist police state and a cociety striving, sometimes hesitantly and even reluctantly, to become a democracy.

Question: Is the Armenian church in the United States vital enough to survive?

/

Apkarian: Yes. Although our n u m b e r is s m a l l ( p r o b a b l y l a r g e r t h a n 250,000' in t h i s c o u n t r y , we h a v e continued to f o r m a v e r y close-knit s u b c u l t u r e and t h e r e is no r e a s o n to f e a r loss of identity. Garabedian: Armenianism in A m e r i c a is definitely f l o u r i s h i n g .

Garabedian: I feel t h a t t h e religion c o u r s e s a r e g e a r e d exclusively for people of R e f o r m e d background. Also these c o u r s e s could be i m p r o v e d if i n s t r u c t o r s would d e a l m o r e with the i m p o r t a n t themes rather than minor details such as the n a m e s of m o u n t a i n s and insignificant people and d a t e s . Question: Does being isolated from an Armenian Church and other Armenians present any personal problems?

Student Reactions Voiced in Discussion Groups By John Renwick In recent y e a r s , Hope College h a s seen a m e t h o d of t e a c h i n g which f o r m e r l y w a s m o r e c h a r a c t e r i s t i c of the l a r g e r universities: A l a r g e lecture session t a u g h t by one or m o r e p r o f e s s o r s , supplem e n t e d by m a n y s m a l l e r discussion sections, led by a f a c u l t y m e m b e r or a s t u d e n t , in which s t u d e n t s could discuss c o u r s e m a t e r i a l under m o r e i n t i m a t e circ u m s t a n c e s t h a n the l e c t u r e hall affords.

STUDENT SUPPORT—A march to the Vietnam Embassy was the climax to a symposium in support of the U.S. Policy in Vietnam held last Saturday in Washington D.C. ' Freedom in V i e t n a m " was the topic for a symposium held in Washington. D.C. last weekend. It was a meeting of students who support the United States comm i t m e n t in Vietnam and who approve of the U.S. g o v e r n m e n t ' s stand against communist aggression in southeast Asia. The symposium was an answer to the demonstrations, picket lines and civil disobedience of those who would hav'e the U.S. withdraw, anchor editor John Mulder and

Student Senator Neal Sobania represented Hope. Students w e r e urged by Steve Santangelo, vice president of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, to go out and m a k e news so we get 'our' story told." He explained that the men in Vietnam find the most demoralizing aspect of their fight in Vienam is to pick up a newspaper from the States and read about the demonstrations.

J i m Boelkins. chairman of the Student Union committee, said that the committee is presently seeking a person outside of the student body to take full c h a r g e of he Union. Lack of interested persons to set the Union process into motion is the present enigma of the Union, Boelkins continued. When someone is hired, the Union will have to f a c e other problems before it can go into its full program for the year. "An initial sum of money to get proper facilities and a modern recording system is the outstanding problem facing the Student Union which prohibits a better Union s y s t e m , " stated c h a i r m a n Boelkins. The Union is in need of a new jukebox and ping pong tables and other equipment. If the problems of the Union a r e solved, the committee plans on opening either the Union or the Kletz several nights during the week on a t e m p o r a r y basis in order to observe student response. With a full-time attendant running it, the Union will offer the students a better social environment than exists on c a m p u s today, " a t least until a d e q u a t e Student Union facilities can be acquired through the SCSC d r i v e , " observed Boelkins. Presently the Union will remain open on weekends when there is no conflicting school social function. concluded Boelkins.

Sen. T h o m a s Dodd (D-Conn.) had the following to say: " T h e antiwar demonstrators c r e a t e the impression that they speak for a m a j o r i t y of U.S. intellectuals because 'ten men who shout at the top of their lungs attract more attention than a thousand who disagree with the ten but r e m a i n silent.' In a short time the silent voices on the nation's campuses will swell over the now boisterous ones. "Why are we in Vietnam? Because our security and that of the whole world depends on the drawing of a line against communism. It has a l w a y s " been this country's policy to help those nations fighting against communism (ver since the T r u m a n Doctrine. Communist China thr eatens the whole destruction of the Pacific. We are there for the freedom of 240 m'llirn people and the world." F o r m e r South Vietnamese ambassador to the U.S. Tran Van Chong told of the Vietnamese people now aiding GI's and rescuing American flyers. He stressed that "The Vietnam war is a war of the people of the world against communism." Joseph Luman of the State Department explained that military aid is necessary because when we gave only economic aid the Viet Cong beheaded teachers and surveyors making education and land reform impossible. Many of those at the conference who supported the Administration's policy in Vietnam wore buttons declaring " B o m b Hanoi" or "Viet Cong—Giv'Em Hell!"

MEMORIAL FUND ESTABLISHED—Former Secretary of the Army, Eugene Zuckert and President Calvin A. VanderWerf admire a portrait of the late Gcrritt W. Wesselink, Hope alumnus '25 and General Counsel of the Air Force.

Wesselink Fund Offers Reading Room in Library A $2500 memorial fund has been established to honor the late Gerritt W. Wesselink, who was General Counsel to the Air Force until his death June 3, 1965. The fund is being used to establish the Gerritt W. Wesselink Memorial Reading Room in Hope's Van Zoeren Library. Presented by Secretary of the- Army Eugene M. Zukert, the fund was established by Mr. Wesselink's Air Force friends. After graduation from Hope in 1925. Mr. Wesselink entered Harvard Law School and received his bachelor of laws degree in 1928. He was an associate and later a partner in the Chicago law firm of Crowe.. Gorman, Mulder and Wesselink. Mr. Wesselink's Department of the Air Force Citation states, "His c a r e e r encompassed high achievement in legal scholarship and teaching . . . at the Georgetown

University and George Washington University Law Schools, at the J u d g e Advocate General School and at other service schools. It included valued contributions as General Counsel of the Department of the Air Force, in which capacity he provided the highest quality of leadership to an outstanding professional group. One oi his most notable contributions was his distinguished service for almost two decades as a m e m b e r and later as the c h i i r m a n of the Civilian Attorney Qualifying Committee for the War Department. Army and Air Force. Through his work on that committee. he influenced the lives of hundreds of attorneys within the Department of Defense. . . . What he gained from Hope College, he strived always to pass on to others; A sense of righteousness, a respect for true learning, a deep r e g a r d for the enlightened spirit."

Student Center Needs Funds Hope students have been discussing the need for a c a m p u s student center for the past year. Their discussions turned to action in September of last y e a r , when 200 students staged a demonstration on President Calvin VanderWerf's lawn and asked that the Administration support a development prog r a m led by students for the future building of an Student CulturalSocial Center on campus. The reply from President VanderWerf was an enthusiastic " y e s . " The following afternoon Preston Maring. head of the Student Union Board, and Bruce Neckers, Student Senate president, met with the President to discuss ideas and money making plans. Charles Menning and Bob Donia organized a Campaign Fund Committee and set a goal of $3000 to be raised by the student body. A t h e r m o m e t e r was set up near Van Raalte to m e a s u r e progress and within six weeks it had gone over the top. Students gave the

A contribution w a s m a d e by the Inter-Fraternity Council and the H club gave $1087 which they had raised selling Homecoming Souvenir P r o g r a m s . The F r a t e r s raised $1000 through their alumni. The bulk of the money c a m e from anonvmous donors. On Nov.

6 a "good friend of Hope" donated $33,000 and again in the spring he presented the College with an additional gift of $50,000. During the s u m m e r a second anonymous donor gave the fund a check for $13,500 which pushed the total over the $100,000 m a r k . Student projects continued this year and an SCSC Hootenany was sponsored by Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, at which over $300 was raised.

By Bill Wichers The eagerly anticipated report of the Hope College Profile Committee, commissioned in October, 1904, was finished and presented as of J u n e 1, 1965, and details s e v e r a l aspects of Hope's f u t u r e p r o b l e m s , ' s o l u t i o n s and possibilities for growth. The Profile Committee, composed of m e m b e r s of the Hope College Board of T r u s t e e s , Hope's faculty and Hope's administration, chose to present its cooperative thoughts, j u d g m e n t and recomm e n d a t i o n s in three general categories: 1. Rethinking the n a t u r e and purposes of the college. 2. Report on Size. 3. P r o g r a m r e c o m m e n d a t i o n s .

I. Rethinking lite Nature And Purposes of the College It w a s the general feeling of the c o m m i t t e e that Hope should maintain its affiliation with the Ref o r m e d Church in America, and continue the central thrust of Hope's efforts over the next decade to provide a " f o u r - y e a r liberal a r t s p r o g r a m , largely preprofessional, and basically Protestant Christian v a l u e - c e n t e r e d . " The following a r e the " B a s e s for Hope's Philosophy of E d u c a t i o n " : The belief t h a t m a n is a creature of God, placed on e a r t h to love and serve God and his fellowmen. He was given the world to have dominion over it, and, in a limited sense, t h e aim of education is to provide man with t h e u n d e r s t a n d i n g and competencies needed to m a s t e r the world. T r u e

education seeks, to develop the wholeness of m a n . Man is a l w a y s in a state of hecoming; a striving for t r u t h . Truth is one, but m e a n s of apprehension v a r y . Although all m e n a r e alike as c r e a t u r e s and s h a r e t h e s a m e general purpose and destiny, each m a n is a unique creation. Program Develops Whole Persons Thus, the c o m m i t t e e feels, the p r o g r a m of education in this college is pointed toward t h e development of whole persons as this phrase is given m e a n i n g through the Christian faith; that people should be developed as unique harmonious entities intellectually, morally, aesthetically and spiritually. Hope College is then also a community of men and women whose chief function is disciplined inquiry leading to f u r t h e r understanding, to more enlightened commitment and to special professional competency. 2.

Report

on

Size

The problem of size is considered to be one of the m a j o r questions facing Hope. Can the school maintain its present criteria for admitting qualified s t u d e n t s who seek a d m i s s i o n ? Should t h e school be increased in s i z e 9 Without i n c r e a s e d selectivity the student body will grow quite steadily in the next d e c a d e , while any further increase in the size of the college will c h a n g e the n a t u r e of t h e total educational e x p e r i e n c e at Hope in r a t h e r significant w a y s . Consequently, the school must either b e c o m e m o r e selective in its admissions or c h a n g e its edu-

cational goals. E i t h e r w a y , the college is going to have to extend its sources of income to m a i n t a i n a quality p r o g r a m in an e n t e r p r i s e of constantly increasing costs. Maintain 'Vital Interplay' If the school is to i n c r e a s e in sizes it must f a c e such p r o b l e m s as how to m a i n t a i n a bridge between student-and-faculty and student-and-student o v e r which intellectual and e x p e r i m e n t a l information c a n flow to p r o m o t e knowledge and e n l i g h t e n m e n t . This is t e r m e d "vital i n t e r p l a y " and is usually at a m i n i m u m in large schools for r e a s o n s of economy and s h e e r physical distance. If the school grows, the faculty will n a v e to grow. To an extent this is good b c c a u s e at least t h r e e or four staff m e m b e r s a r e necessary to provide a first-class dep a r t m e n t a l m a j o r sequence, and g r e a t e r faculty stimulation is provided as well. To an extent it also is bad b e c a u s e it i n c r e a s e s the d i s t a n c e s between departments and p r o m o t e s i n t e r - d e p a r t m e n t a l rivalry, while increasing specialization and i n d i f f e r e n c e toward students who a r e m a j o r i n g in other departments. Student Becomes Spectator In addition, the larger the college. the more likely it is t h a t the a v e r a g e student will be a s p e c t a t o r r a t h e r t h a n actively involved. He will be more a^t to fail to develop fully and wholly. On t h e other h a n d , it is possible that the college could develop or initiate some new plans that will enable the s a m e goals to b e met educationally while allowing for an e v e r - e x p a n d i n g enrollment. It is possible that the college may a s s u m e an obligation to educate all people, r e g a r d l e s s of background, who a r e capable of competing on the college level. It m a v well be that Hope should encourage t h e growth of its sister schools. N o r t h w e s t e r n College and Central College, which a r e affiliated with the R e f o r m e d C h u r c h , or n r s e the establishment of more R e f o r m e d Church colleees. Financial Support Essential If Hone p l a n s on growth, then it will h a v e to be hardnosed in its d e t e r m i n a t i o n to secure the kind of financial sunport that is essential to maintain some s e m b l a n c e of the educational c n m m u n i t v in which t h e whole person can grow. The Profile Committee b a s e d its e s t i m a t e s of cost for growth on three different m a x i m u m enrollm e n t s . About 1800. 2000 tp 2200, 2200 to 2600.

It is necessary now to set a certain levei oi enrollment to work toward preventing extensive overbuilding or e x p e n s i v e under-building. . Three Alternatives F r o m consiueration ol this material c a m e t h r e e proposed alternatives: 1. T n a t the enrollment be stabilized at its p r e s e n t level and a screening policy be invoked which will not lend to p r o m o t e an "ivory t o w e r " school but a well represented one in r e g a r d s to background and intelligence of its student body, m a i n t a i n i n g t h e philosopny and p r e s e n t a p p r o a c h to education which h a v e been developed to this point. 2. That the e n r o l l m e n t be gradually i n c r e a s e d to a level of about 1800 by 1968-69, and that this be increased to 2000 m a x i m u m if the financial b a s e is sound enough. This will necessitate s o m e increasen selectivity in a d m i s s i o n s . 3. T h a t the school plan for an eventual enrollment of about 2600 with the possibility of f u t u r e growth beyond 1975, while working within the financial limitations and realizing that it might lose something in increased size. Controlled growth and development of financial r e s o u r c e s a r e i m p e r a t i v e to all t h e s e plans as is a continual need for r e a s s e s s m e n t in the light of f u t u r e contingencies. 3.

In t h e a r e a of c u r r i c u l u m and instruction t h e following r e c o m m e n dations w e r e m a d e : ( a ) that a continual effort be m a d e to improve the educational p r o c e s s and encourage the students to b e c o m e

"self-initiating l e a r n e r s " , ( b ) that an e t i o r t be m a u e to o r g a n i z e courses f r o m various d e p a r t m e n t s into m e a n i n g f u l units or p r o g r a m s w u e r e o ) a s t u d e n t could i m e g i a t e t h e m a j o r of his choice witn related m a t e r i a l f r o m other d e p a r t m e n i s in an organized p r o g r a m of study, ( c ) thai l a r g e r units of instructional time be l o r m e d p e r h a p s leading to a year-round o p e r a t i o n of tne school so that m a t e r i a l could be more coherently and fully p r e s e n t e d , and (d) t h a t pilot p r o g r a m s be established to implement ( b ) and ( d ) above. Individual Takes Precedence In e x i r a - c u r r i c u i a r a c u v u i c s , it was r e c o m m e n d e d tnat the overall development oi tile individual lake p r e c e d e n c e over e v e r y o t n e r consideration, and t h a i tne p r o m o t i o n of an overall s e n s e of c o m m u n i t y was vitally i m p o r t a n t . It was rec o m m e n d e d that f r a t e r n i t i e s and s o r o m i e s a n a l y s e tne r a t i o n a l e for their e x i s t e n c e and p r e s e n t it in d o c u m e n t a r y f o r m , that ail service organizations com e up for periodic evaluation, tnat college regulations be kept to a m i n i m u m and that their rationale be clearly s t a t e d and p r e s e n t e d to the s t u d e n t body, that daily worship be continued and that intimacy of intellectual relations b e e n c o u r a g e d . Solicit Federal Funds And it was r e c o m m e n c e d that the college put g r e a t e m p h a s i s on developing sources of revenue more fully. This included tne rec o m m e n d a t i o n t h a t f e d e r a l funds be solicited and used w h e n their uses a r e consistent with t h e purposes and a i m s of the college. This report, however, can be considered as p r e l i m i n a r y and its reporting rough and its suggestions only that. In c o m m e n t i n g on it. P r e s i d e n t Calvin V a n d e r W e r f noted that rec o m m e n d a t i o n s m a d e by the Com mittee would be d i r e c t e d to the various c o m m i t t e e s of t h e Board of T r u s t e e s and the faculty for f u r t h e r consideration a n d comment. 'Master Plan' for Development He mentioned that the Board would be m e e t i n g this week to consider various architectural firms to engage for the purpose of developing a " m a s t e r p l a n " for the d e v e l o p m e n t of the college's facilities. He also said that the General Synod of the R e f o r m e d Church in A m e r i c a has e n g a g e d a t e a m of e x p e r t s to study the problem of the c h u r c h ' s educational policies and relationships of its colleges to it. It is possible that this t e a m might even suggest some e x t r e m e l y radical m o v e such as relocating one of the colleges in the E a s t to nrovide b e t t e r geog r a p h i c a l distribution. Consequently, the report must be viewed realistically as only a notice of some of the possibilities for Hope College, not as a full and final outline of the next d e c a d e or beyond.

Hone needs at present about $3 to 54 million worth of new plant facilities depending on w h e t h e r they a r e designed for 1800 or 2600 students. Two-thirds of t h i s is the SCSC building, a n d most of t h e

The word is out! The U.S. wants soldiers, 45.224 in all, and in one month. Thai's the n u m b e r of draftees designated for December of this year. It is the highest since May 1953, when 53,000 men were drafted for the Korean war. The U.S. intends to boost its military strength by 340.000. This would raise it to over 3,000,000 men on active duty, ready to m e e t any crisis. From Vietnam we receive both bad and good news. The Defense Department reports that the U.S. has lost 111 planes since last F e b r u a r y . Only five of these were brought down by anti-aircraft missiles. Nevertheless, the U.S. is trying to discourage missile use and so wiped out a mobile missile site 52 miles northeast of Hanoi this past weekend. In both the Central highlands and in the "Iron T r i a n g l e " jungle area north of Saigon successes were reported. The latest VC flurry of activity s e e m s to be centered in the

rice-rich Mekong Delta area where there a r e no U.S. a r m y units. The U.S. is sticking strictly to its " c o n t a i n m e n t " policies, a factor which is keeping Communist China out of the UN. U.S. officials believe we can again acquire enough votes to preclude Red China's entrance into the UN. Secretary- of State Dean Rusk stated that we will not allow Red China in the UN because that would be succombing to the Chinese belief that she "can r e a p rewards by adhering to strategy of violence." The s a m e old thing? India charged Pakistan with aggression and with attacking her territory using U.S. built tanks. President Sukarno of Indonesia verbally attacked the American CIA, calling its m e m b e r s the subverters and interventionists of imperialism. Russia charged the U.S. with desiring to prolif e r a t e nuclear weapons rather than trying to baA them, at the s a m e time Russia re-expressed her fear of West G e r m a n y ' s ob-

taining them. In " n e w " news, the Communist party in Indonesia is in trouble. The a r m y seems to b e quite averse to the p a r t y ' s existence and its avowed aim is to wipe out the Reds. Sukarno has permitted the a r m y to impose a ban on the Communists in J a k a r t a but has stopped it f r o m taking any more stringent measures. He seems determined to maintain active neutrality. Premier Castro's new opendoor policy is paying off. Over 700 refugees have already reached Florida. They are allowed to take virtually nothing with them and must forfeit all rights to their possessions upon leaving Cuba. Castro gets their money- and their possessions as well as having potential troublem a k e r s removed from Cuba. The United State's hesitancy in completing negotiations is understandable. There is no way of knowing how m a n y ' Red agents are among the refugees; thus adequate safeguards must be provided for. Illlilllllllllllilllllll|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||[r;

THE BIG PUSH—Sophomore Steve Piersma pushes an Albion ball carrier, Peter Boroday, out of bounds while Walter Reed (29) looks on in the Albion g a m e last Saturday.

Too Little, HUFF! PUFF!—Cal Osterhaven, Hope's number one distance man strides for the finish line, as he will again do this afternoon against Calvin College.

Crippled Silksters Yet To Win First; Drop Two Riddled with injuries Hope's cross country t e a m dropped its third and fourth league meets to Albion and Calvin respectively this past week. Cal Osterhaven took first in the time of 22:26 in the m e e t against Calvin at the Van Raalte Field last Wednesday, but his m a t e s w e r e unable to give him much help as the Knights copped the meet 22-33. Wayne iMeerman finished fifth az Calvin runners took the two through four spots to gain the triumph. Dan Berry was eighth, Rich Bisson took ninth and Danny Howe finished in the 10th spot as the Dutch fell to last place in the MIAA. Against Albion at Albion last Saturday, Osterhaven was forced to quit the r a c e with a half mile to go in the four mile dual and the Britons took an easy- 15-50

decision. Osterhaven was in second place behind J i m Dow of Albion when he developed a pain in his side and was forced to drop out of the race. Dow, who led Albion to a 1-2-3-4 finish in the MIAA Cross Country meet last year, took first in the time of 20:59. Hope hosts the Scots of Alma tomorrow at the Van Raalte Field course and hopes to gain its first win of the year.

Too Late

D u t c h m e n Defeated by Albion Pinpoint passing by veteran q u a r t e r b a c k Dave Neilson gave Albion four first half touchdowns and a 28-12 win over the Hope Flying Dutchmen at Albion last Saturday. Neilson connected with all-MIAA •ind John Ellinger for the first three scores and then hit halfback Floyd Harper with the fourth paydirt aerial. Overall. Neilson hit on eight of 13 passes to account for more than two-thirds of the Britons' total offense. Hope, stymied for three q u a r t e r s by a h a r d charging Albion defensive line, broke loose in the fourth quarter for two tallies. The second half also saw the beginnings of a Hope running attack featured by senior Bill Keur and first year man, Dennis Wilder. Keur and Wilder accounted for 134 of the Dutch's 153 yads gained on the ground and both boys scored touchdowns. Keur's six - pointer came early in the fourth stanza on a 10-yard dash up the middle, while Wilder scored on a five yard

Sketches of Hope Athletes As a special feature of the Homecoming issue, the soorts page is dedicating a number of columns to some c a p s u b sketches of some of the athletes on the t e a m s that a r e active in the fall sports season. Football Harlan Hyink—Starting quarterback for three years with the Flying Dutch. An All-MIAA selection at the q u a r t e r b a c k post as a sophomore, he led the Dutch to a tie for the MIAA championship with his passing. Now a senior he is sharing q u a r t e r b a c k duties with newcomer Gary Frens. Bill Hultgren—The other end of the Hyink to Hultgren combination that was the scourge of the league in 1963.

Bill Barger—The biggest m a n on the squad and the center on the offensive line as well as an o u t s t a n ^ n g defensive lineman. A transfer last year he is now in his second season with the Dutch. Along with Schipper. Ken Carpenter and Gary Hoivick. he was part of the powerful defensive wall that was an integral part of the Dutch team in 1964. Roger Kroodsma — An outstanding all around athlete who has played both offensive and defensive end in his four y e a r s at Hope. He received honorable mention for All-MIAA last season and has proven to be an outstanding linebacker for the Dutch this season. Gary Frens—A F r e s h m a n f r o m F r e m o n t who has been impressive a s a reserve q u a r t e r b a c k . He played a good deal last week against Albion and showed his ability to get the offense moving. He is also the top punter on the squad and has been averaging 36 y a r d s a boot. Cross Country Cal Osterhaven—A second y e a r man f r o m Holland who h a s taken first in three dual m e e t s so far this season. He has rounded into one of the finest runners in the MIAA during a season when co-captain Gary Peiper and second year m a n - P a u l H a r t m a n have been sidelined with injuries.

Gary Peiper—One of the top cross country men in the league who has unfortunately missed the entire season because of an injury. He was among the top 10 in the MIAA Field Day last y e a r and co-captain of this y e a r ' s squad. Dan Berry — The other co captain on this year's t e a m . Although a junior. Dan missed a year of eligibility because he transfered. An outstanding t r a c k m a n who has been extremely consistent in his two y e a r s of competition. Soccer J a i m e Zeas—A senior from Ecuador who has been the highest scorer on the team in its two year history. He had a four goal g a m e earlier this season against Oakland University and was second leading scorer on the squad last season. Allan Griswold — A second y e a r man from Fairlawn, New J e r s e y who has been with the t e a m f r o m its inception. One of the regulars, he is a shifty wing who tallied two goals earlier in the season in Hope's g a m e with powerful Illinois University. A fine passer who h a s been high on the list of assist m a k e r s in both seasons with the t e a m . Brian Bailey—A junior who h a s played goalie with the Flying Dutch for two seasons and was one of the main reasons that the Dutch had a fine 6-1-1 record last season.

run with only minutes to play in the g a m e . The running g a m e totaled 113 yards in the second half, while 95 yards on nine completions in 22 a t t e m p t s bv starting quarterback Harlan Hyink and back-up signal caller Gary Frens. Hyink hit on six of 18 passes in the first half and had three of his aerials picked off by the Albion defense. F r e n s completed three of four passes after coming into the game in the second half. One of Fren's passes was intercepted. Albion, however, had the game well in hand at halftime. The Britons recovered a Hope fumble on the Dutch 35 early in the first quarter and four plays later a 21yard pass from Neilson to Ellinge. capped the drive. Neilson and Ellinger upped the count to 14-0 later in the first period with a 28-yard pass that finished off a 40 yard scoring drive. Joe Reed converted as he did after every Briton touchdown. •Midway through the second quar-

ter Albion put on its longest drive of the game, a 62-yardpr, that climaxed in a four yard scoring pass from Neilson to Ellinger. H a r p e r helped to share in the profits when he latched onto a 17 yard pass from Neilson late in the second stanza and went in for the score. The fourth touchdown put the finishing touches to a 38 yard march. Although the defensive secondary of the Dutch was not quite able to cope with the shifty Albion receivers. the Dutch forward wall contained the Briton running attack e x t r e m e l y well, and the secondary adapted to the Albion attack to blank the Brittons in the second half. Wilder, who gained 68 yards, and Keur. who totaled 66 yards, showed signs of a new Hope running g a m e . Once again the passing attack w a s virtually useless. Hopefully. both will be clicking tomorrow afternoon when the Dutch play Alma at Riverview P a r k in the annual Homecoming contest.

Calvin Downs Soccermen; Face Wheaton at 3 p.m. The Hope soccer squad, try as they might, simply couldn't click as they went down in d e f e a t at the hands of the Calvin Kn : ?hts by the score of 5-1. Hope's lone counter c a m e midway in the third period on a shot by Doug Nichols, with Calvin scoring three times in the first half and twice in the second. Many factors worked against the Dutchmen, offsetting fine performances by forward Alan Griswold and defensement Dave Y n t e m a and Cornelius Agor-Iwe. One w a s injuries. Forced to start the game without the services of Gibson Dallah and P i e r r e Sende, the kicke r s w e r e dealt further blows by the disabling of Dave deVelder and

Agor-Iwe. But by far the biggest hinderance c a m e f r o m clashes and anticipated clashes with the referees, who had previously troubled the t e a m . With both t e a m s in unison disagreeing with m o r e than a few official decisions, hostility reached a fever pith in the fourth quarter when Nichols was ej Q cted from the g a m e and was quickly followed out by Neal Sobania. According to Coach Phillip Van Eyl. concentration on the officials and not soccer was a big reason for the loss. With revitalized enthusiasm the Hope eleven will clash with Wheaton College in their homeocming contest this afternoon at 3 p.m. on Van Raalte field.
