won't mean a t h i n g " — it r e f e r r i n g to any extra-curricular activity. T h a t some of the faculty deny homecoming, while others relish it and appreciate the work that goes into its production, puts the Hope student in a very difficult, exhausting, and sometimes f r u s t r a t i n g position. Yet, let the students not work on homecoming, not plan it, not support it, t h e r e would follow an u p r o a r and more t h a n considerable comment! As successful as the whole weekend was, it m u s t be realized t h a t no one person could take in every event, as one person could in past Hope homecomings. This point w a s called to my attention by a friend — that the weekend was too big; there w a s too much to do. This is true — unless this is one of those numerous growing pains experienced as institution enlarges, t h a t is, t r y i n g to offer much f o r the t a s t e s of many. Should everyone be able to take p a r t in all the offered activities? is the question which follows naturally. P e r h a p s not. But, if yes, then something m u s t go; the p a r a d e ? the dance? the openhouse? What, t h e n ? W h a t about the newly instituted academic side of homecoming? Not having attended all t h e sections I had opportunity to, I cannot s t a t e f r o m first hand experience j u s t how effective this p a r t of homecoming was, but f r o m all gathered comments so far, this innovation

seems to have made a definite and positive impression on the alumni, faculty, and students, and should be a sure t h i n g to r e p e a t f o r Homecoming 1959. The section leaders, as we know, were selected Hope alumni; well selected too.

R e t u r n i n g to the idea expressed in the second sentence: Homecoming this year was a grand success: "The Memory Album" was a fine theme, the floats and house decorations were good, our Hope band never sounded so good, the S a t u r d a y night dance was well attended and very successful, Hope's r e t u r n i n g alumni were many, publicity was well handled, and the Sunday vesper service was particularly beautiful. The overall results were indicative of hours of careful planning and vigorous work. So many persons, faculty, students, alumni, deserve credit. Having seen but t h r e e homecomings, I am not a judge, but f r o m talking to several persons who have seen many, you who worked so hard can be assured t h a t Homecoming 1958 w a s indeed an outstanding one. —O.K.

From year to year the choir's membership has averaged ninety voices, a t one t i m e numbering one hundred fifteen. The membership this y e a r numbers ninety-six, f o r t y - t h r e e of whom a r e Freshmen. In addition to a n t h e m s by Charles Wood and Lloyd P f a u t s c h , the choir has in preparation a Spiritual and several carols f o r t h e Christmas season. The choir elected Senior Robert de Forest as its President who in t u r n made the following appointments: Secretaries, P e g g y Hixson and Betty Fell; Librarians, Betty W h i t a k e r and Bobbie Russell. Paul Hesselink and J a n e t Koopman, who are both Freshmen, have been named accompanists to the choir.

By adopting the topic "Opportunities in Internatioal Organization" f o r its c u r r e n t semester's prog r a m , the Hope College International Relations Club has embarked on a deliberate effort to emphasize the correllation between the extacurricular interests of club mem-

bers and the academic concerns of all students enrolled in the course entitled International Organization. Dr. Fried expressed the hope t h a t students enrolled in his evening class would not only benefit f r o m the opportunity to question men working in various international organizations but t h a t , in t u r n , their participation in the regular IRC meetings would add to the value of t h e club's discussions. A t the same time he pointed out t h a t the evening classes will be open to interested IRC members and other students whenever guest speakers are scheduled to meet with the class.

Hope • Ives by Richard Jaarsma One of the f a c t s not generally bruited about, and as a result not known by many people, is t h a t there are a g r e a t number of married people on this campus. We were r a t h e r surprised ourselves when we were told by no less person than Dr. Lubbers t h a t there were eighty married students attending Hope College. And this not counting the janitors! Although it is not easily discernable whether a person is married or not, there are certain indications t h a t betray t h a t status. When a person is seen riding a bicycle (usually a male student) and you ask him where his car is, he may mumble something to the tune of "Oh, Jean's got the car today." Chances are t h a t this person is married and his wife is attending a tea at one of the professors' houses. Another way in which you may suspect t h a t certain students are married is by attending the All College Sing and noticing the vociferous exclamations of delight evinced by certain male members of the balcony crowd when the Hope-Ives go into their number. If they are not cheering f o r their wives, t h e r e is something amiss somewhere. Now t h a t we have introduced a new word to the campus vocabulary, I suppose we must explain this little used phrase. All right then. The Hope-Ives is an organization composed of the wives of those students to whom they have the fortune or misfortune to be attached in the bonds of matrimony. This group meets, we think, in order to discuss t h e shortcomings of their spouses. As this is only conjecture, we may have to be corrected on this statement by the Hope-Ives themselves. Maybe they do play bridge. As we stated in the beginning of this article, these are f a c t s t h a t are not generally bruited about. There seems to be no reason why this should be kept such a dark secret unless it is the stronger sex that is ashamed to admit t h a t it fell f o r t h a t sweet little girl with the pretty brown eyes. Well anyway. Hail Married Students! Hail Hope-Ives!

He is a polished quarterback in every respect, being poised, intelligent, and excellent ball handler and passer. On defense, operating from the left corner, Paul has the power to penetrate and the speed to protect the outside. Few short passes have been completed a g a i n s t him. He is a sophomore from Holland, weighs 175 and stands 5 feet 10.

Jerry Herp—Halfback J e r r y ' s speed and quickness make him a dangerous r u n n e r to the outside. Once in the open he is elusive, a real brokenfield man, and he also r a t e s as a leading defender. He is small by comparison with most other football players, standing five seven, weighing 150 lbs. He is a sophomore and comes f r o m Hopkins, Michigan.




A few minutes later, Hope capitalized on another Bulldog fumble and a f t e r a fine run by Duane Voskuil, Bekius leaped into the end zone f o r the second score. Huibregtse again converted to make the score 14-0. In the second q u a r t e r , Hope went down the field on a 72 yard touchdown march which was climaxed by a twenty yard run into the end zone by Bekius. Huibregtse failed to kick the e x t r a point which was his only miss of the day. This gave Hope a 20-0 half-time lead. In the second half, Hope scored its f o u r t h TD with just 1:02 gone. This drive was f e a t u r e d by a 54 yard end run by Pete W a t t and a 26 yard touchdown scamper by Bekius. A f t e r the kickoff, George Peelen recovered his second f u m b l e of the day to pave the way f o r Hope's fifth TD. W a t t scampered 18 yards f o r the score. Sophomore Bob Bonnette scored the last TD f o r the Dutch a f t e r intercepting a pass and running to the Adrian 35.
