'VICTORY' HOMECOMING BEGINS 12 Elected To College Who's Who The biographies of twelve outstanding n o p e seniors w.li be included in the annual Who's Vvho Among Mudents in American Colleges and Universities publication ii was announced this week by ii. Pettus Randall, editor. Those selected for the honor are Clinton Harrison, Milton Verburg, Editn Klaaren, Harvey Koop, Barbara Dee Folensbee, Alfred Borgman, Iwaijorie Brouwer, Donald De Fouw, Daniel Fylstra, Winifred M. kameau, Seymour K. Padnos, anu Jean Ruiter. Nominations for selection were made by the college registrar. Professor Thomas E. Welmers in consultation with other memben. of the administration on the basis of character, scholarship, leadership in extra-curricu.ar activities, and potentiality for f u t u r e usefulness to business and society. The purpose for the national publication is to serve as an outstanding honor in which deserving students, a f t e r displaying merit in college and accomplishing their goals, may be given recognition without having to pay some fee and to establish a reference volume of authoritive information on the great body of America's leading college students. One of the services of Who's Who is a free placement bureau which aims to help students bridge the span between college and the world of business. The publication office maintains a detailed file of students' records to which all business concerns in the United States and Canada may refer. In addition, students selected for the publication may indicate their preference for the firms with which they would like to be affiliated and the placement bureau sends his complete record there. The service is already planning to help selected students who enter the armed forces re-adjust themselves to civilian life a f t e r the war.

Naughty Freshmen Receive Penalties From Council Freshmen ego was crushed Tuesday night when three frosh were tried for misdemeanors before the Student Council in its regular business session following the "Y' meeting. Ken Steketee, "Bobbie" Roosen and 'Bud" White were held on charges of not wearing the "green," dating upperclassmen, and jay-walking a f t e r 10 P. M. Deeply chagrined, following humiliating questioning and convincing paddling, the erring frosh readily agreed to remain law-abiding Hopeites for the duration of the " g r e e n " period. After rendering a verdict of "guilty," the council, in session, issued an obiter dictum warning to all forty-sixes who feel themselves too important to be classed with the other frosh who wear the " g r e e n " and stay home a f t e r 10 P. M. "Several other freshmen will soon be summoned before the council for trial," stated Student Council Prexy Clint Harrison in his general warning to the frosh. Harrison announced that these freshmen will be sentenced to "penalties" at the annual "pot" burning ceremony to be held immediately a f t e r the Nykerk contest, November 23, on the College athletic field. Following the freshmen trials, final plans for Homecoming were reported by Co-chairmen Mildred Timmer and Al Weenink. The Interclass chairman gave detailed information on the Frosh-Soph games and Pull, which were postponed last week because of weather, and reported on e a r l y plans f o r the Nykerk Cup contest, annual FroshSoph girls' event. Verne Boersma reported t h a t t h e Student Council petitions f o r opening the library a t night were filled, and stated t h a t sttMlents will probably be using the night library service within a week or two.

place on the south side of Black River and the sophs with Con Vander Woude acting as captain will pull from the north side. The flooding of the frosh holes was the reason for the postponement. Both teams have been practicing faithfully but the postponement will be in favor of the sophs who will have a few extra days to work under Coach Dan Fylstra. Nevertheless, the boys of Rog Koeppe and AI De Voogd may be counted on to put up a good scrap. The victorious team will not be known until one team is dragged through the muddy river. The rules as prescribed by tradition require that the t e a m s pull in their holes for fifteen minutes. Then, following a one-minute rest period, the t e a m s come to their feet and tug until one team is pulled through the river and the first man touches the opposite bank. Also following a postponement, the frosh-soph games were held yesterday. Keen spirit was exhibited by the boys and girls in both classes. Ets Kleinjans and J i m burger acted as chairmen for the boys' games while Millie Timmer and Jean Ruiter directed the contests of the girls. While the games were of real interest to everyone, it is the annual pull that really determines the superiority of the Freshmen or Sophomore class.

Competition for Nykerk Cup Set for November 23 It was in 1934 that the frosh class first pulled the sophs through the muddy w a t e r s of the Black River. As class rivalry was at its height, the female members of the poor u n f o r t u n a t e class strongly felt the humiliation of d e f e a t . The incited Amazons immediately challenged the inexperienced frosh girls to a pull to show the male sophs that this is a woman's world. Before the pull got under way, I>r. Nykerk, late Professor of English, intervened and suggested a program more adaptable to the weaker sex. Consequently, a literary and musical contest was held — each class presenting an oratorical number, a musical selection and a one-act play. A cup was accordingly presented to the class receiving the g r e a t e r number of points for its performances. The contest, which has since become a traditional annual affair, will be held t h i s year on November 23rd a t the L i t Club. Soph captain is Mary Elizabeth Aldrich, who will be a s s i s t e d by Edith Klaaren a s coach. The f r e s h m a n class will be captained by Elaine Mensinger, and will be coached by Marge Emory.

The judging of the yearbook was made upon comparison with the books considered the best in their division. These divisions are made according to the number of students in the school, and to the type of school the yearbook is representative of. The Milestone was entered in the division of universities and colleges with the enrollment of students from 500 to 999.

Homecoming Is Time tor Remembrance Homecoming! Old grads return and the whole student body tingles with excitemcnt! Yet behind this excitement is some serious thought. What have Home College grads of the past 75 years done? What have they accomplished; If we look into the records they'll show us that, judging by the millionaires she's turned out, Hope has been a big failure. Yes, if Hope's grads had headed for money, we could have had a new science building twenty years ago. But they didn't. However, if we measure human achievement by the amount of world-wide service done, then Hope's grads are second to none. The men and women that Hope has sent out in threequarters of a c e n t u r y are, and have been, servants of humanity. W^at made and kept them that way? What was the motivating force behind their lives? No, it wasn't money. How about knowledge and intellect? Or was it science? Could it have been a lust for personal glory? No! No! No! Surely it was something else. Something greater than money, knowledge or science. But what was it? It was an intangible something which can be summed up in the words, "Faith of Our Fathers." Then the question comes, do we still have that motivating force on the campus today? Or do other things come first? Are we stressing science and intellect too much ? Money talks and always will; but isn't it talking a little too much? Perhaps our many extra-curricular activities take too much of our time. Are we putting first things first? It is impossible for one person to answer all these questions. However, we are sure that as v.e celebrate our first war Homecoming, we could afford to pause and say with Rudyard Kipling, "Lord God of Hosts, l)e with us yet; Lest we forget; . . . Lest we forget!" —R. E. K.

enrollment in such courses at a relatively high level. However, the liberal a r t s curricula have taken a kick in the face which, as an official in the Office of Education here put it, is "somewhat disturbing." What's the answer? Apparently there isn't any while the war lasts. And it's a moot question whether an answer should be sought before the war's end. Manpower Commissioner McNutt has said that "non-essential courses we have come to regard as essential to a classical education must be replaced. This war demands chemists, engineers, doctors, experts in nutrition, public health and agriculture." Then there were Secretary of War Stimson's two contradictory statements of recent date which, once unraveled, seemed to echo McNutt. •

In order to get a loan from this fund a student must be studying under the wartime speedup plan, i situation that makes it virtually impossible for him to take a job )n the side, or to work during the summer. If he can't get a loan and must have help to get through school, there is on'y one answer — get out! Which may mean that a man already partially trained for highly specialized work goes into military service to do a job that might be done by any one of thousands of untrained recruits.

I'm sure that a few split participles and dangling modifiers would suffice as "homey" homecoming decorations. Quizzed Kidd. Dear Quizzed Kidd, As an alumnus, I am of course interested in the football game to be played on Saturday. I would like to know just what condition the 'squad is in, and whether or not it looks like a big day f o r the "Dutch." Howie Smackem. My Dear Mr. Smackem, It touches me deeply to know that you are so greatly interested in the well being of the football squad, and I am moved to tears when I say that although the boys are in fairly decent physical condition, shock and overindulgence have left their marks. You see, the boys won 'heir game at Hillsdale last week . . . that accounts for the shock. And those cigars of Herb Van Tongeren didn't help any when it came to keeping strict training rules. Nevertheless, Coach Hinga has been pulling plenty of things lately (a tendon for one) and he'll pull this game out of the fire. Hope for Victory . . . Victory for Hope. Quizzed Kidd. Quizzed Kidd, I didn't like what you said about me just now . . . And can I help it if I taught "the Romantic Period" to H.V.T. last y e a r ? Anyhow what I'd like to know is . . . Can I sing in chapel if we win the game on Saturday ? ? ? Hinga. Coach, Wow . . . Truly. Quizzed Kidd. My Friend, Eleanoah hates football, Haddy Hopkins hates football, I hate football, we all hate football . . . If I cast down the cares of Washington this week-end. and come to Hope, could I find any sort of amusement to my likings .' F.D.R.

Dear Frank,

And to make you feel right at home, we have abbreviated everything for your immediate comprehension. We have the N.H.C.B. (New Hope College Band) and the faculty. T.W.H.U. (Those Who Haunt Us) . . .

YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO—(ACP) — Robert J . Woods, whose college professors told him he never would be an aeronautical engineer, is the Youngstown-bom designer of the Bell Airacuda and the Bell Airacobra. Woods was orphaned at 17 and worked to send himself through high school and night school. When tiis family's estate was settled, he received $1,200 and with this money attended the University of Michigan. One day one of his professors detained him long enough to advise: "Woods, you'd better give up your aeronautical engineering and specialize in something else. You're just not cut out for it. You'll never make an aeronautical engineer. It's not in you." A f t e r a series of positions with and Towle Aircraft Co., the Detroit Aviation Corp., Lockheed and Consolidated, Woods went with Bell as a chief engineer, when he was 30.

HOPE BATTLES BRITONS TOMORROW Homecoming Tilt Appears Toss-up for Hope, Albion A closely fought battle is in the offing as Hope and Albion come to grips tomorrow in the annual Hope College Homecoming football game. This game promises to be one packed with excitement and thrills; for, although Albion at the beginning of the season was rated the best team in the conference, Hope has shown that it has the offei'sive and defensive spirit that may defeat them. The odds in some ways seem to greatly favor Albion, for they started their grid schedule with 16 lettermen returning and also with the largest squad in the league, some 64 men. In the backfield they have Stevens, the fastest man in the conference, and Schneider, who shone brightly in last Saturday's game against Lake Forrest. The Albion line averages 182 pounds, which is almost as heavy as the University of Michigan line. Albion already has defeated such teams as Ohio Northern and Hillsdale. The fact that Albion took Hillsdale by the score of 14-12, while Hope defeated the same team 13-6, would seem to favor Hope. Hope's victory was due, no doubt, to the shaking up of the team before last week's game, and if the same combination can click in the game tomorrow they should be able to take Albion to the cleaners.

Green, but plenty flashy, "Gabby" Van Dis also played a stellar game at halfback.
