School-Wide Exam File

On the other hand, the student stands every chance of capitalizing on the experience of previewing his class tests. To the senior this may not be as important as to the f r e s h m a n , who has no idea w h a t the stereotype of a test in a particular course is. With three years behind him, the senior will receive proportionately less benefit, but as f o r f r e s h m e n , a complete file of t e s t s and final examinations will throw light on an often baffling situation. A modicum of knowledge well applied concerning what to expect in a test may boost a drooping average. We have tried to illuminate this problem to you, f a c u l t y and student, and your replies, using the Anchor as a medium, will help the Student Council arrive at a satisfactory denouement. M. W.

About a month and a half of the school year has gone by. The Council has already accomplished some of its aims while several of them are still in the blueprint stage. The first decision t h a t was made was to change the method of selecting the Homecoming queen. In general, student opinion seems to favor the new method, but it is felt t h a t there will still have to be a f e w minor changes. The Council also feels that g r e a t strides have been taken to enlarge and vary our social program. The responsibilities of the social committee have been increased so that it is now co-sponsor of all social activities on campus. In addition, two all-college social activities will be initiated. There will be an AllCollege Christmas banquet early in December and an All-College f o r m al in March. The Council has also accepted the responsibility of the Kletz during evening hours and on week-ends.

Several i m p o r t a n t council changes are now in the process. A special committee has been appointed to create an effective civil service program. This p r o g r a m would consist of a form on each individual which would include a list of all his activities in high school and college. These f o r m s would then be available to executives of the various organizations on campus. It is f e l t t h a t this program would create a higher caliber of membership on the various committees. Two special committees have just been established to work on very important projects. One committee is to s t a r t f r o m the "ground floor" and completely revise our committee system which is f r e q u e n t l y in a state of chaos. The other committee will work on revising our Student Council constitution which is inadequate in many ways. It might be added t h a t this is one instance where the U S N S A will be of much help to us. They will be sending us helpful information concerning committee systems and constitutions. Each of these revisions will require much time and thought. If they are well done, they could easily be the outstanding contributions of this year's Student Council.

They're Still Going Strong F o r the first time in the history of W.A.A. a handbook has been compiled. It was written by Suzie Van Slageren, President of W.A.A. The handbook includes information on the point system, the presentation of awards and the various sports t h a t the W.A.A. sponsors. A handbook f o r every girl is available. Those students who do not live on campus may obtain their copy from Miss Breid in the gym office. Last Saturday, Hope sent twentythree representatives to the playday at Olivet. There were two girls f r o m the senior class, five juniors, six sophs, and seven f r e s h men. The program at Olivet included badminton, p i n g p o n g , volleyball and basketball. During the day, an executive meeting was held at which time it was decided to hold next year's playday at Calvin College in Grand Rapids. The executive committee also decided that the constitution of the M.I.A.A. was in dire need of revision. Adrian, Albion and Hope comprise the committee appointed to revise the constitution.

Through The Keyhole In their last two encounters the Dutch have displayed by f a r their best example of good, solid, competitive football seen to date this season. Against the g r e a t e r depth and experience of supposedly impenetrable Hillsdale, we were able to more t h a n hold our own f o r much of the game. In f a c t at halftime it appeared as if the 12 game winning streak would be stopped. Only by their superior depth were the men f r o m Muddysville able to rectify themselves f r o m ruin. Although we did end up on the short end, the team gave an inspiring performance of which we may all be proud. *

phony, do not expect t h e intense d r a m a o f t e n f o u n d in Beethoven or in t h e lilting melodies in S c h u b e r t . Each composer reflects his own t e m p e r a m e n t and times, and an even superficial knowledge of t h e times of a c o m p o s e r m a y help t h e listener to a p p r e c i a t e and u n d e r s t a n d differences between c o m p o s e r s of various periods. Good music is as c a r e f u l l y planned and d e t e r m i n e d a s is a b e a u t i f u l p a i n t i n g , a moving d r a m a or a b r e a t h - t a k i n g c a t h e d r a l . C a r e f u l and r e p e a t e d listening will p a r t i a l l y reveal the c o m p o s e r ' s mind and m a n n e r . P e r h a p s one of t h e m o s t h e l p f u l distinctions a l a y m a n can m a k e when listening to music is to d e t e r m i n e w h e t h e r t h e music is absolute or p r o g r a m m a t i c . Absolute music exists a s p u r e music — it s t a n d s alone and needs no l i t e r a r y or visual image to give it m e a n i n g . This does not mean t h a t p r o g r a m music is not good music, but p r o g r a m music is g e n e r a l l y d e p e n d e n t upon an association with an outside influence, which is m o s t o f t e n indicated by the composer in the title. Beethoven's fifth s y m p h o n y and B r a h m s ' second piano concerto are absolute music. It is t r u e t h a t t h e h e a r i n g of e i t h e r of t h e s e compositions m a y c r e a t e p i c t u r e s , i m a g e s , or l i t e r a r y associations in the listener's mind but t h e i m p r e s s i o n s will not be as e x a c t as t h o s e resulting f r o m p r o g r a m m a t i c music such as Debussy's La Mer or RimskyK o r s a k o f f ' s Scheherazade. All t o g e t h e r , good music, w h e t h e r it be p r o g r a m m a t i c or a b s o l u t e is a l w a y s i m a g i n a t i v e and it will a l w a y s find a response in the active, curious and a p p r e c i a t i v e listener. The final and best s u g g e s t i o n I can give in response to the question of " w h a t to listen f o r " is to listen to good music as o f t e n as possible. F e r r a n t e and Teicher, a two-piano t e a m , had t h e distinction of p r e s e n t i n g the first concert f o r Holland and Hope's Civic Music Association. T h i s concert, given on October 13, w a s a t t e n d e d so well as to m a k e one ask why c o n c e r t s of equal m e r i t which have been given in t h i s a r e a in the p a s t f e w y e a r s h a v e been so poorly a t t e n d e d . The opening piece of a n y concert is usually a " s e t t l e r " f o r the audience. However, it m u s t be said here t h a t the audience w a s p r o m p t in its a r r i v a l and c e r t a i n l y quietly receptive even to t h e opening n u m b e r . I hope t h a t t h i s splendid display was not due to t h e excitem e n t of a " f i r s t " concert b u t t h a t it will be indicative of Holland's audience f o r f u t u r e concerts. Many questions have been raised a m o n g the musically interested s t u d e n t s on c a m p u s a s to t h e a r t i s t i c worth of the encores. T h e i r going over with a b a n g is f o r t u n a t e l y no c r i t e r i a of t h e i r w o r t h but I a d m i t t h i s " m u s i c f o r f u n " had a s much r i g h t to be enjoyed whole-heartedly a s had t h e more serious music. It is t r u e t h a t the Bolero is too much h e a r d even by o r c h e s t r a . The success of t h i s piece depends on its color. When it was announced as t h e o p e n i n g encore I i n w a r d l y recoiled, f o r the intended r h y t h m i c monotony is bearable only because of the o r c h e s t r a l coloring given it by the composer. The e v e n i n g ' s p e r f o r m a n c e of t h e piece w a s given some of its original color by t h e use of the mechanical devices. Bolero and African Echoes employed f o r lack of a b e t t e r t e r m , " p r e p a r e d pianos." The a r t i s t s , upon being asked f o r t h e i r recipe, would not divulge it. W h a t t h e y did to t h e t w o S t e i n w a y s is indeed of t h e i r own m a k i n g and business (double e n t e n d r e intended). T h e idea of p r e p a r e d pianos is not new. If t h e effect produced is musical and r i g h t , the a r t i s t i c i n t e g r i t y of such a device is not to be questioned. A f r i c a n Echoes, an original piece by F e r r a n t e and Teicher, is t h e r e f o r e also completely justifiable. A t r a n s c r i p t i o n of Sousa's s t i r r i n g S t a r s and S t r i p e s Forever I can t a k e . T h a t it is still most effective in its original scoring is t h e only a r g u m e n t I can p r e s e n t f o r its not being p e r f o r m e d a s a t r a n scription f o r a n y o t h e r m e d i u m . All considered, the evening of October 13 is a m e m o r a b l e one f o r Holland, musically s p e a k i n g .
