The annual Week of Prayer at Hope College will be held this year during the first week of November, under the auspices of the Association Union and Religious Conference. Rev. John A. Dykstra, pastor of the Central Reformed Church, Grand Rapids, Mich., will be the guest speaker. The meetings will begin with an afternoon service at four o'clock on Sunday, Nov. 1st. This will be followed by meetings at 11 A. M. each school day that week. Regular chapel exercises will be suspended during that week and the four recitation hours will be allotted forty-five minutes each from 8 o'clock to 11. Dr. Dykstra has chosen for his addresses a series of studies in the Epistle of Paul to the Philippians. His daily topics will be announced on printed programs to be distributed later. Use Philippians in your daily devotions and prepare your mind and heart for the meetings. Dr. Dykstra will also hold personal conferences with such students as would like to confer with him. These conferences are scheduled from 9 to 11 in the morning and from 2 to 4 in the afternoon, in the Divinity Guild Room, lower floor of the Memorial Chapel. If there is any matter of religious faith or life work that you desire to have advice on, let the proper committee chairmen know about it and a time for the conference will be arranged. Prayer meeting groups will also be arranged for during the evenings of this week. Watch the lists and schedules, as they will be posted and be sure to attend where you are expected. Let us all heartily cooperate by regular attendance at all the meetings, and, above all, by earnest prayer for God's blessing upon our whole Week of Prayer program. Your friend, The College Pastor. VAN VLECK HALL TO HOLD OPEN HOUSE FRIDAY AFTERNOON Open house will be held at Van Vleck Hall on Friday, October 30th, from three to five o'clock. Mrs. Ritter and Miss Boyd will be hostesses. Students, faculty, alumni and their friends are cordially invited to inspect this historic building. Van Vleck is the oldest structure on the campus, having been erected in 1857. It one time served as classroom, laboratory, dormitory and president's home. Mrs. Frances Phelps Otte, the first woman to graduate from the college, was born in Van Vleck Hall. In 1924 the interior was completely rebuilt and is now modern in every respect. Lady guests visiting the "Oriental Room" will be priyileged to have their future revealed by a mystic of the Far E a s t

U. S. navy. Because of the men's debate question, Mr. O'Brien chose to discuss the topic, "Capitalism versus Communism." He likes to call his speech a "one-man debate." After the lecture an open forum was held in which both the students and faculty asked numerous questions relative to the- subject which were promptly and vigorously answered by the speaker. Captain O'Brien is a gifted lecturer, humorist, and portrayor of unusual characters. Sometimes he may be heard over international radio hookups. His ability for argument and wit are well known and have won the respect of many. In his lecture Captain O'Brien maintained that communism is not challenging capitalism. It is his conviction that capitalism has a commanding position in the eyes of the nations because of its place in the progressive United States. Communism, however, is only on trial to see whether it will work on a large scale when it has failed in small experiments. Mr. O'Brien said that the Russian communism is actually dependent upon our capitalism. If it were not for our money, our machinery, and our engineers, __ Russia could not carry out her' five-year plan. And while the United States is helping them, the communists are enslaving the masses of people. In Russia there is absolutely no choice of (Continued on Page 2)

Senior Men Entertained by Fraters VIEW MOVING PICTURES OF HOPE-FERRIS GAME On Tuesday evening, October 20, the senior Fraternal men entertained all other senior men at their commodious house on Columbia Ave. There was a good turnout, and everyone enjoyed a social hour before the program proper began. Howard Schade opened by singing an appealing selection entitled "My Friend." He was accompanied by Dick Niessink. Jack De Witt next favored with several varied humorous readings. The boys especially enjoyed the traffic quarrel after the Puritan manner. The feature of the evening came next—the movie version of the Hope-Ferris game taken by Carl Walvoord. It proved both drama and comedy—drama when run through and comedy when run backwards. All marveled at the phenomenal sight of the big stack at Riverview park hooking smoke right out of the sky. The closing number was another song by Howard Schade. He sang "Sylvia" by Oley Speaks. Refreshments of sweet cider and doughnuts were served by the Frater freshmen, and the rest of the evening was spent in games and senior talk.

Everybody is to gather at the Gym after the parade and have a good time.. The <Jym will be very becomingly decorated and everything will be short peppy and snappy. Jack De iWitt is going to entertain with a football stunt. A farce in one act entitled "Flittermouse" under the direction of Mrs. Durfea will also be given.

Of course we're going to have lots of singing and good cheers under the able leadership of Cornie Vandernaald and Verne Buhl. We're going to finish it off wiih a gigantic bonfire furnished by the Frosh, and the yells given arjpund the fire to inspire our

football team to a grand victory. Saturday is the big day. The alumni will get a chance to see how large and peppy Hopeites are since they left. The American Legion Band is going to play for us and there are several surprises in store for every one during the halves of the games. • You- mustn't forget the "Koffie Kletz" to be given a t the dorm after the game We have invited the people of Hillsdale to stay over and come to the dorm for coffee and then around to the various fraternity houaes for the open house. Plans for a Homecoming booklet are in the making and these will be sold for ten cents at the game. Also souvenir footballs will be available on the campus beginning Wednesday to be worn at the game. They too will be sold for ten cents by the A. D. D.'s. We might add a word or two of apology for raising false hopes on a sign across main street. After careful investigation and also because of the depression (that had to come to us sometime) that sign will not be there. Sorry! THE COMMITTEE.

Sorosites and New Girls Meet

Hope Trounces Ed. Students Will Attend St. Mary's to the Convention Tune of 39-0 GENERAL A N D DIVISIONAL MEETINGS ATTRACT SENIORS



Last Saturday the Hope gridders romped over a heavy, but inexperienced eleven, representing St. Mary's of Orchard Lake, to the tune of 39 to 0. As usual Hope was outweighed almost 10 pounds to the man, but nevertheless the squad had little difficulty in running up this imposing total even though Coach Hinga substituted frequently. During the first half, when most of the regulars were playing, the Dutchmen collected 27 points. Following the intermission, however, the reserves were prevented from adding more than two touchdowns by a terrific downpour. Hope's first counter came early in the game. A series of open formations had taken them to St. Mary's 39 yard stripe. At this point Japinga galloped around right end to the 1-yard stripe. Three line bucks lost ten yards, and on the last down, Louie tossed a pass to Dalman in the end zone. The kick from placement was wide.

Excellent Programs Reported Store for Those Attendiiif Two-Day Meet

Near the end of the quarter Hope got the next tally when Japinga took a punt in midfield and crossed the goal after squirming through the entire opposing eleven. Louie kicked between the poles for the extra point. Of the other touchdowns, Fox blocked a punt to put Hope in scoring position, while Slagh, Van Haitsma and Dalman did likewise by intercepting passes. The boys from St. Mary's were completely outclassed and never had a chancer However, Newman, their left half, looked good, while (Continued on Page 2)

Hope Delegates Travel to Lansing on "Y" Conference HEAR KIRBY PAGE DISCUSS YOUTH'S RELATION TO WORLD PROBLEMS ' The Y.M. and Y.W.CJV. sent eight delegates to Kirby Page's week-end conference. This conference was held at East Lansing and was sponsored by the Y.W.CA. of Michigan State College. The opening session was held on Friday evening when a banquet was given to all delegates followed by an address-by Mr. Page. The conference held sessions throughout Saturday and also on Sunday morning. Our delegation left on Friday noon, expecting to have an interesting and profitable week-end. The purpose of the conference was to show college students how they could do their part in settling the great problems of the world. The delegates found Kirby P a g e to be an interesting speaker and one who understood world problems. Although the conference was a little different type than they had expected, they were benefitted and understood more d e a r l y the problems that are facing our world.

Friday evening, in spite of Nature's tear-washed face, the new girls were given a smiling welcome by Mrs. Durfee in the third of her series of teas. This time Sorosis entertained in the forpi of a regular meeting with Miss Marie Kleis, the Sorosis president, in charge. Devotions were led by Sorosittf Vera Van Duren. The business meeting was a' clever outline of the history, ideals and ^purpose of the oldest girls' society on the campus, The program consisted of a marimba solo by Sorosite Hilda Lanting, who flayed "Mighty Lak' a Rose," by Nevin, "The Perfect Day," by Bond, and "The Rosary," also by Nevin as an encore. She was accompanied by Sorosite Gertrude Holleman. Sorosite Jeanette Herman and Esther Koster presented a skit which included the singing of the popular songs, "Beautiful Love," and "The Hour of Parting," by the "Sorosis Nightingale." The meeting was adjourned to delicious Senior—"In Siberia they don't refreshments and a social hour. hang a guy with a wooden leg." Miss Ross, a Sorosite alumna, Freshie—"Why n o t ?

Tomorrow and Friday a goodly share of the Seniors will be in Grand Rapids attending the convention of the Fourth District of the Michigan Education Association. All senior education students are excused for these meetings, and although there is nothing compulsory about attendance, most of the embryo teachers consider them worth taking in. A full schedule of general and divisional programs luts been drawn up by the committee. Featured speakers at the general meetings are Bishop Frederick B. Fisher of Ann Arbor, who will address the group on Mahatma Gandhi Thursday morning; Judge Marcus A. Kavanagh of Chicago, who will discuss '"Why the Law Fails"; and Stuart Chase, economist and writer, who will speak on "A Billion Wild Horses." Several excellent musical numbers have also been aranged. The Davis Vocational and Technical High School IBand will play on Thursday morning. In the evening will be heard the Grand Rapids Teachers' Ladiea Chorus, and Dale Gilliland, baritone, Director of Vocal Musk, Central High school. On Friday, at the 1:30 p. m. meeting, the Junior College Brass Quartet will play. Every phase of education will foe dealt with in the special group meetings, and each one may choose the particular meeting or meetings he desires to attend In connection with this convention, will be held the Alumni dinner for Hopeites and friends a t the Central Reformed Church in Grand Rapids. President Wichers will be the principal speaker a t this affair. o NEW MEMBERS LEAD Y.W.CJL

The program of the Y.W.CJL meeting of October 20, "Expectations and Impressions of Hope College," was entirely in the handa of the new members, mostly Freshmen. Dorothy Dulmer led the opening song service, accompanied by Evelyn Van Bree at the piano. The leader of the meeting, Marian Wray, introduced several Freshman girls, who in turn gave very interesting "expectations and i a p r e s sions" of the religious, educational, and social sides of Hope College. "The Holy Hour," by Kevins, was •next given as a violin solo by Cornelia Stryker, accompanied a t the piano by Margaret Stryker. The leader then gave her own expectations, impressions and conceptions. The meeting was very inteMating in that it gave the old members an idea of what the new members ex-

pected of them and also what they migh 4 expect from the new mem—k might bers in the future. LYCEUM ANNOUNCEMENT Birch A Company, Magicians will be featured aa the third num-

After a few moments of discussion, the meeting was closed with prayer offered by Mr. Borr. o

OUR TEAM Saturday afternoon will witness our football team in the toughest game of their season. Hillsdale presents the strongest opposition of any eleven in the M. I. A. A., and according to sport dope has a ten to one chance of winning over Hope. But how does this fact influence our attitude towards the game? We believe every Hopeite will answer the question in this way;—the stronger they are, the more glory in beating them. We are proud of Hope's football team and its phenomenal rise to a position of power and respect in our athletic sphere. We can keep it there by making a game fight against the strong Hillsdale team. The student body can make up for the weight disadvantage by concerted cheering at the game. Let's give our team to know that we are right "in there" with them through thick and thin, loss or victory. lH:r

Special Tuesday Only

Homecoming! There's a thrill in the very sound of it, a joy in pronouncing it, and a charm in its contemplation. To the students of Hope College homecoming means two days of exciting events,—parades, football games, dinners, and reunions with graduated friends. But to these graduated friends, the Alumni of Hope, homecoming has a deeper significance and a dearer meaning. It is the return to the scene of their happiest years, and among the "memories that bless and burn" is a reverence for all that Hope is and has ben. The present student body owes it to their predecessors to make homecoming as pleasant, as exciting, and as satisfying as circumstances permit. It is our privilege to show the Alumni that Hope is a growing school, and to what degree it has progressed since their college careers. Let us make the most of this opportunity. To the Alumni we open our doors and our hearts, saying, "Welcome home!"

Hare a Future

Your future is what you make it * If you acquire spendthrift habits, your future cannot possibly be a bright, Jiappy and successful one. The best medicine for the cure of extravagance in youth is to start a small savings account in a well regulated bank. The first ten dollars in a bank book already gives you that feeling oi wanting to see it grow. It too gives you that independent feeling. One dollar starts an account. m We welcome Hope Students.

A CORRECTION The College Pastor wishes to call attention to an unfortunate error on the next to the last page of the preliminary reading,, matter to be found on the College Calendar pads which the Association Union presented to the members of the Freshman Class. All having such p§ds please note, on the page entitled "Campus Organizations and Activities,", that the names of the second and third organizations mentioned are incorrect. Where the name "Divinity Guild" is found, substitute the name "Student Volunteer Band," and where the name "Home Volunteers" is found substitute "Divinity Guild." Then the information given will be correct except that the Divinity Guild meets on Wednesday afternoons and not on Friday evenings. There is no longer any organization on the campus by the name "Home Volunteers." The organization formerly so named is now called "The Divinity Guild."
