Hope College — Holland, Michigan

Mom & Dad's Day To Be November 12 S a t u r d a y , November 12th, marks the day of Hope's last football game of the 1960 season, but it is also the day of another annual tradition at Hope College — Mom and Dad's Day. Invitations are mailed to the parents of all present Hope students, to invite them to see how their sons and daughters live, work and enjoy themselves while away from home and preparing for a career in life. The first event on the day's agenda will be the football game with Olivet at Riverview Park at 1:30 in the afternoon. Following the game there will be open house in all the dorms and other buildings on campus.

Correspondence, Carol Douma, Karen Waltman, and Carol Fuge.

A buffet supper for the students and their parents will be served in Phelps Hall from 5:00 to 7:00 P.M. Tickets f o r the supper will be on sale two weeks prior to November 12th. An evening variety program will feature student performers.

Meeting to Consider College Teaching As A Profession

Reformation Day Services To Be Held Here Monday, October 31, Reformation Day services will be held in Dimnent Memorial Chapel. The 8:00 A.M. chapel service will be led by Reverend Allen B. Cook, College Pastor, who will speak on "The U n i t y In Our Diversity". There will be special organ and choir music. At 8:00 P.M. the Holland and Zeeland Reformed Classis will sponsor a service. The featured speaker will be Dr. Harold Englund, President of Western Seminary. The special music for this annual service will be provided by the Western Seminary Choir.

Mark Twain Here via Smith Something new in entertainment will be presented to the Hope student body at 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, in the chapel, when George William S m i t h , Professor of Speech, Radio and Television at McCormick Theological Seminary, Chicago, will appear in "An Evening With Mark Twain." This program is especially significant right now. Samuel Langhorne Clemens, known to all as M a r k T w a i n , died in 1910. He completed his auto-

There will be two performances, at 6:30 and 7:30 and admission is free. This year's general chairman for Parents' Day are J a n e t Riemersma and Jim Hanenburg. they are assisted by the following committees:

Publicity, Barbara Blunt. Football Game, Fred Colvin and Jack Siebers. Buffet Supper, David Van Dam and Barbara Ver Meer. Variety Program, Carol Bonthuis and Kurt Van Genderen.

On Wednesday afternoon, November 2, Prof. Edward Wolters and Dr. John Hollenbach will meet with all Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors interested in exploring the possibility of col lege teaching as a career, in chapel 16 at 4:30 p,m. As the enrollments in college and universities climb rapidly, the demand f o r qualified new teachers is also increasing. So also are opportunities for graduate study and graduate scholarships and fellowships. Many students decide too late that college teaching is their desired goal, and are not ready to take advantage of these opportunities. The purpose of this meeting will be to describe the basic educational qualifications f o r college teaching, the desirable undergraduate program, and the approach to application f o r admission and scholarships. All interested urged to attend.



Number of Foreign Students In United States Increases Engineering, which claimed 11,279 of the students, continued to be the most popular field of study. The humanities, with 9,246, was again second. Far, M i d d l e , and Near Eastern, along with Latin Americans, striving for their countries' industrialization, again were concentrated in engineering. The largest groups attracted by the humanities were from Europe, North America, and Africa. The number of self-supporting foreign students has been decreasing rapidly in recent years, but statistics on sources of financial support showed t h a t again this year the single largest group of students — 38.3% — were studying on their own funds. This is almost a

4% decrease f r o m last year's percentage. The next largest group of students — 27.7% were aided by the growing number of scholarships offered by private organizations. U.S. government grants, which supported 5.5% of the total foreign student population this year as opposed to 4.8% last year, crept ahead of foreign government grants, which this year supported 4.6%. More than half the U.S. government grants were reported by Far Eastern students. More than 25% of the foreign students who studied here this year were again concentrated in California and New York, with California — 13.3% — leading New York with 12.5%.

biography shortly before his death and in his will he told his executors to withhold publication for fifty years. The Autobiography of Mark Twain, as edited by Charles Neider, came off the presses recently. This is, therefore, a Mark Twain year. Professor S m i t h has been playing the part of Mark Twain for some time. Recently, under the auspices of the Mark Twain Research Foundation, he took part in the dedication of the Mark Twain Birthplace Shrine near Perry, Missouri. On t h a t occasion Governor James T. Blair, Jr., of Missouri, gave the dedicatory address and Professor Smith, as Mark Twain, responded. Everything Professor Smith says in his lecture is from Mark Twain's writings. This is a good opportunity to b r u s h up on k n o w l e d g e of an American writer, who, according to one A critic, ". . . now occupies a niche little lower than that of Lincoln himself."

Explaining National Defense Loans The National Defense Student Loan Program was authorized by congress as the National Defense Education Act of 1958. This act provides for the creation, at American colleges and universities, of loan funds from which needy undergraduate and graduate students may borrow on reasonable terms for the purpose of completing their higher education. How Funds Are Established Congress appropriates funds for the purpose of the National Defense Student Loan Program. Funds are alloted among the States and the outlying areas of the United States in the proportion of total full-time college enrollment in the .State or outlying area to^ t o t a l full-time United States college enrollment. Within each State or outlying area, these funds are distributed among all participating colleges and universities on the basis of institutional requests. A participating college or university is required to the creation of its National Defense Student Loan Fund a sum equal to at least one-ninth of the amount contributed by the Federal Government. These joint contributions thus constitute the Loan Fund at this institution, and the responsibility f o r its administration therea f t e r rests with the institution. Within conditions prescribed by the act and by regulations issued by the U.S. Commissioner of Education, the institution itself selects student recipients, arranges the loans, and is responsible for their collection. Eligibility Since each participating institution is responsible for determining the eligibility of a candidate for a loan, a prospective borrower must apply for loan

assistance at the financial aid office of the college of his choice. The law requires t h a t each borrower be a full-time undergraduate or graduate student, that he be in need of the amount of his loan to pursue his courses of study, and that he be, in the opinion of his institution, capable of maintaining good standing in his chosen courses of study. The law further provides that s p e c i a l consideration in the selection of loan recipients be given to students with a super-

ior academic background who express a desire to teach in elementary or secondary schools, or whose academic background indicates a superior capacity or preparation in science, mathematics, engineering, or a modern foreign language. Terms of Loan The student must sign a note for his loan. He may borrow a maximum of $5,000 during his college career but not more than $1,000 in any 1 year. The repayment period of the loan begins 1 year a f t e r he completes (Cont'd on Page 4)

Intellectual Freedom Last night we saw the films of the Hungarian revolution. There were many students, on the streets of Budapest, smiling, marching happily for freedom. The scene shifted as we saw a young girl, not over eighteen, poke her rifle around the corner of a building and pull the trigger. We noticed with surprise and horror, the smile on her face as she watched the bullet hit its mark. Because we were ensconced in our favorite chair, and because the wind howled wildly around the corners of our room, we dozed and had a dream. We saw students with guns and clubs milling in front of Van Raalte, and heard the eerie sound of sirens and the rumble of tanks. And all the students were smiling.

Discussing Quemoy-Matsu Issue To the editors of the Anchor: It is quite natural for Mr. Wang to be influenced by affections for his home in discussing the defense of Matsu, and Quemoy, his native island, but I feel that the questions he brought up were not adequately answered. Mr. Wang states that the questions being asked are as follows: "Kennedy questions the defensibility of these islands while Nixon questions whether

Americans should defend these islands or not." The question of defensibility is not nearly the content of Kennedy's question because, according to military men who are much more expert in this field than either candidate, these islands are not practicably defensible and Secretary of State Herter agreed with this. The question Kennedy raises is that, in view of the afore att e s t e d t o "indefensibility,"

should we bind ourselves to defend t h e m ? Nixon's answer to the question was, at first, a simple "yes." as he pronounced his own "I oppose handing over . . . one inch . . ." doctrine. This was based on "principal." Maybe Mr. W a n g

The individual student that does not work for a grade is rare indeed. It is asking a great deal to ask him to do otherwise. Yet the student is advised to seek. When he asks, "Seek what?", certainly enough the answer follows. "Excellence!" Now, if he is fortunate and manages to settle for himself what is this thing "Excellence," he needs only to embrace and sustain it daily. Necessity and intelligence combine to sustain him: through the din of notoriously poor lectures; above acute concern for poor grades earned through petty tests; and beyond the criticism of low and mean persons in his academic life. His task is to forego the petty and vulgar in a search guided by integrity and sensibility. Having momentarily satisfied the question of his purpose, the student looks about him to determine what is at his side to aid him towards the satisfaction of this purpose. He sees an institution, an educational instituition whose stated purpose it is to sustain, strengthen and undergird the development of students. Now, he heartily takes it upon himself to think it so. However, doubt begins to cloud his certainty; he becomes sceptical. The Honor Code as an issue on campus has been hashed, re hashed, extinguished and relit. The Student Council was kind enough to bring the matter up for student discussion last year— the response was disappointing. .. So the Honor Code became history; that is, until the preregistration faculty meeting. Oddly enough its protagonists from the Student Council were still going strong. Now the student finds the Honor Code Committee enlarged: perhaps in the attempt to further mature it and spring it upon the campus full grown. The student turns to Arithmetic trying to determine how many times a thing must be decided before it is decided. In Arithmetic it is possible that a decision is a decision when it is decided. The student, being intelligent and of an open mind, sees that this must be an incorrect conclusion, and looks about to secure a reason for the existence of a dead issue. Perhaps, just perhaps, this institution at his side has become confused. Perhaps theirs is the insistence that an Honor Code is a fine thing, because Oberlin College has one. Perhaps they think that the textbooks that are fine textbooks. The student hears, the "Oberlin" through the halls of Van Raalte. Raalte stood for quite some time very solidly they now stand next to those of Oberlin.

Obelin College uses repressed ring of The halls of Van in their own right;

Could the purpose of this institution be obscured? Could their standards, their particularly evolved standards, be slipping slightly? These questions should be asked! To strive for excellence is one thing; is it not quite another to strive for recognition? This appears analogous to the student that acquiesces, in his pure and simple pursuit of the grade. It is not excusable. To attain to excellence and to derive recognition thereby is honorable—so long as integrity is not forgotten in the pursuit of it. Remember the task; to forego the petty and vulgar in a search guided by integrity and sensibility.

Others May Change We have all heard "Know thyself and to thine own self be true", but have we ever heard of thought of "Know others and through this knowledge gain understanding and consideration"? With all our moments of introspection do we leave time to get to know and try to understand others? Or are we satisfied with taking someone else's word for the reputation of another? Do we quickly jump to conclusions concerning their behavior when we ourselves know nothing as f a c t ? Life is certainly dynamic. From situation to situation, from day to day, people do change. Why then do so many think that they remain the same? Is there no room in our understanding for new consideration of the person's situation and background? If we expect or desire that others change, we must give them a chance by frequent re-evaluation and continued consideration and understanding. It's as I heard a man once say, "The most realistic man I know is my tailor. He measures me again everytime I see him."


"We must be the opposite of weak and provocative; strong and conciliatory." It is a possibility that the island of Formosa could become a separate entity from the mainland if it is divorced from these islands. There is one principal involved, that of the effective containment of Communism.







Let us look at some other men of "principal" of the NixonRepublican group. When Mr. Lodge entered the U.N. as our ambassador he informed the press t h a t he would not shake hands with the Soviet representative. Somehow, he was able to be the private dining guest of that same representative, later. Mr. Lodge's tactics of largely using the U.N. as a place to stand up and denounce the Communists instead of a place of settling disputes have not at all been appreciated by our Western European allies, and to the neutral nations, we and the communists seen to be just two immense belligerent forces.

Political Periscope

College Winners Will See Europe Behind Republicans: Don't Fool Yourselves! Tourist Curtain" On Care Crusade Trip by Justine Ann Dakin Mr. Nixon has been basing his campaign on the basic premise that the nation is doing well in the Cold War. His speeches indicate that while America must not stand still and rest on her laurels that the Administration's policies in the past eight years have been good. Lest we be deceived, we should not accept Mr. Nixon's word too literally. In the past two years, this issue of American prestige and accomplishment in the Cold War has been of utmost concern. The problem has been studied by three presidential commissions. The Rockefeller brothers have also analyzed the problem. Committees in Congress have been scrutinizing the problem, and teams at Harvard, Columbia, Princeton, Pennsylvania, and other institutions of repute have been doing the same. Not ONE of these studies has supported the optimistic and successful picture of the United States that Mr. Nixon assures us exists. Each of these reports, most of them from Republican oriented study groups, have expressed grave doubts over our effectiveness as a nation in these serious times. A very real anxiety has been expressed over certain aspects of our foreign and defense policies. Mr. Stevenson, at a Citizen's-for-Kennedy dinner in New York last week included this little verse in his speech, which I feel aptly points up the above. "Fact finding committees and such Are wonderful, who would displace 'em ? But the Whte House would add a delightful new touch If having found facts, it would face 'em." Lest this dominantly Republican campus (myself included) be too duped by campaign oratory, we must have hope that Mr. Nixon is indeed concerned about our problems and defects in the present administration. If elected, Mr. Nixon, relieved of the yoke of having to defend the present administration, will undoubtedly be aggressive and somewhat innovating in his administration's approach to such thorny problems as Cuba, Red China, and Russia. Let us hope that Mr. Stevenson's limmerick can find acceptance in a Republican administration should Nixon and Lodge be the choice of the nation on November 8.

A blazing orange fire crackling in the center of a white marble fireplace is what immediately caught our attention as we piled out of the cool night air into Dr. Hollenbach's home. After each of us had located a comfortable chair in which to sit our weary bones Cal arose from the depths of a sofa and called the meeting to order. The minutes from the last two meetings were read and approved. (You bet!) During Sharon's report she asked all junior sorority representatives to announce the new sophomore agents of their sororities. They did. They are, Alpha Phi, Joyce Droopers; Delphi, Sharon Cady; Dorian, "let you know next week"; (that's a clever name); Sib, K r i s t i n Blank; Sorosis, Joan Ten Cate. .

And on this bill did you FAIL to specify what material you purchased and for what purpose you used the material? If so, beware of Norm Kansfield, the Student Council Treasurer.

They are just a few recent examples of the ways in which college g r o u p s h a v e sent peopleto-people help across the world during the 14 years of CARE'S operations. They illustrate, too, the unusual kind of sightseeing two American college students will soon enjoy, through the Vicks CARE Crusade. .To be specific:

The Italian palace now houses the Orphanage School di Marie, which has vocational as well as elementary classes for 200 orphaned girls and daughters of destitute families. But its equipment was as outmoded as its ancient halls, until a Student Council contribution from the Wheaton, 111., campus enabled CARE to deliver the sewing machine, plus needle trade kits of sewing supplies—the tools of modern training, so that the girls can get jobs as dressmakers and garment workers when they graduate. The 50 Hong Kong pupils had faced a problem shared by thousands of refugee children in the colony: They cannot attend school unless they bring their own writing materials, yet their parents cannot possible afford the cost. Because students of the Women's College at the Greensboro, North Carolina university raised funds for CARE, each child received a school kit containing a whole semester's supply of copybooks, pencils and other essentials.

Fraternity Rushing Begins Hi Everyone!

SIGMA SIGMA The Sorosis pledges are glad they are finishing their second and final week of "slavery to the actives". Last Friday they received their quests which tested their persistence in everything from surveying the underside of every table in Graves library to searching all the telephone poles on Eighth St. That night they presented their gift to the actives at the literary meeting which was put on by the pledges. Sigma Sigma is proud to have Sorosite Donna Davis as chairman of Sophomore Nykerk and Sorosite Evy Hollander directing the sophomores in their song for the same.

OMICRON KAPPA EPSILON During Rushing all the Frats are busy and the Fraters are no exception. On Wednesday night they held a Smoker and on Friday night a Hayride. Both were well attended. On Wednesday, Nov. 2nd another Smoker will be held; on Thursday, Nov. 3rd Ralph Materie will be presented in the Civic Center; and on Friday, Nov. 4th, the annual Shipwreck Party will take place.

ALPHA GAMMA PHI After being informally initiated into Alpha Phi last Friday evening, the pledges are feeling rather humble beside their slave masters. This week the slaves were engaged in Service Week, doing chores for their big sisters and also for their Arcadian brothers. Initiation activities will culminate with Formal Initiation on Friday, October 28th in Phelps Conference room. The date of October 29th will be an important one on the Alpha Phi calendar. It is Date Night! For the occasion a square dance will be held in the gym with pizza being served for refreshments.


Flying Dutchmen Tip Kazoo 26-14 Still smarting from the Homecoming disaster at the hands of Muskingum, the Hope Colege eleven came from behind to up set a favored Kalamazoo team, and take home the Wooden Shoes for the fourth year in a row. It took the inspired running of Freshman halfback Ken Visser to gain the Dutchmen third place in the M.I.A.A. standings, as the start of the fourth quarter found them behind, 14 to 13.

Last Saturday at Angell Field, the Hope College Cross-country team met some stiff competition in the form of Kalamazoo College. Schelb of Kalamazoo took first place in the four mile run with a time of 23.16.

Activity in the Arkie Camp has been at its fullest during the past week. A victory over the Fraters 28-18 on Friday afternoon gave the Blue and White a share of the football championship. At last Friday evening's literary meeting, attended enthusiastically by many rushees, Dr. Vander Lugt, Dean of the College, spoke on his experiences in education. It was presented in a very personal and enlightening manner which was enjoyed by all those attending. Although dampened by the weather, the spirit was high at the lawn party and cook-out held on Saturday evening. One hundred and thirty members and guests enjoyed the fun, food and fellowship which the evening offered.r On Wednesday evening the men of Chi Phi Sigma held their second coffee break at the house. Many familiar faces and some new ones were welcomed to the "break". All rushees are invited to attend the Hostess Party this evening at the house. Come S t a g ! Events during the coming week include a coffee break on Wednesday evening, a literary meeting on Friday night, and a Hayride and Dance next Saturday evening. We'll be looking for you fellows.

SIGMA IOTA BETA After a week of doing little jobs for their big sisters the Sibylline pledges finally became actives on Friday night. The pledge dinner and Formal Initiation took place at Cummerford's at 6:30 on October 21. Barbara Kamphuis was in charge of the affair and the sorority wishes to sincerely thank her for a wonderful job. At 6:45 A.M. on Saturday morning the girls met in front of Durfee for the annual hike and breakfast. The hike was to the home of Ann Herst on South Shore Drive and the breakfast was. enjoyed in the game room of the Herst home. After breakfast a meeting was held at which a few elections took place. Jean Louret was chosen as Pan-Hell representative;" Carol Rattray was chosen as Balfor representative, Lorraine Lawrence was elected Keeper of the Archives and Photographer, Lorraine De Feyter was chosen Rose Girl, J a n e Van Tatenhove was chosen as Anchor Reporter. The new actives of Sigma Iota Beta are as follows: Jean Louret, Louise Zjawin, Maurive Haas, Marilyn DeWitt, Judy Loveys, Mary TenPas, Johanna Van Lente, Kristin Blank, Jane Van Tatenhove, Lorraine De Feyter, Judy De Ryke, Carol Rattray, Joyce Vander Molen, Kathy Teck and.
