Joint Y Club M e e t to Be Host to Rev. Matsumoto Rev. Toru Matsumoto will be the speaker at a joint Y.M. and Y.W. meeting on November 12 in Hope Memorial chapel. He is wellknown in the Reformed Church in America. Rev. Matsumoto was born on the Island of Hokkaido, Japan, in 1913, of a Christian mother. His father was a physician. When his family moved to Tokyo in 1928, he was enrolled in the Middle School Department of the Meiji Cakuin, the oldest mission school for boys in Japan, founded and nurtured by the Reformed Church in America and the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. Changing his original plan of following his f a t h e r ' s profession, he entered the College Department of the Meiji Gakuin in preparation for theological education later in the United States. Hoping to train himself for a role of Christian educator in his native country, upon graduation from the College in 1935 he came to the UniteJ States and entered Union Theological Seminary, New York City. He g r a d u a t e j from Union in 1938 with the degree of Bachelor of Divinity. While in Japan, he was active in all international student activities, having been General Chairman of the first American-Japan Student Conference held in Tokyo in 1934. He was a delegate to the second similar conference held in Portland, Oregon, the following year. While a student in America, he was Assistant Secre'.ary of the Japanese Students' Christian Association of North America 1936-37, and Acting General Secretary the following year. In January, 1938, he became Editor and General Secretary of the Association.

College t o Have Weather Station Hope College will be the scene of Holland's weather station as announced by Dr. Irwin J . Lubbers last Thursday. Operated by the Board of Public Works for 40 years the service will now be in charge of Professor Albert E. Lampen, who teaches astronomy along with other mathematical subjects. Prof. Lampen will be assisted by Professor Clarence Kleis of the physics department, and Professor Clyde Geerlings, instructor in meteorology. The Chamber of Commerce recommended to County Agricultural Agent Leo R. Arnold who handles details for the state that the weather station be transferred to Hope College. The weather apparatus will be installed on the campus near the science building. The t r a n s f e r will be under supervision of a state official.

Attention, Students Work on the 1947 Milestone is well under way. All departments are functioning, recording the events of the year at Hope. The Milestone office is located in the basement of Van Raalte Hall, next to the Koffee Kletz. The Milestone photography studio, f o r individual and group pictures is on the fourth floor of the Science building, east side. The object of a yearbook is to record the events of a school year, in such a manner as to make that record a cherished possession. In order to fully realize this goal, the staff needs co-operation from the student body and faculty. Beginning this week, schedules will be made and distributed f o r individual pictures. A book is not complete unless every student has his picture printed a t least once. When you receive your appointment date, keep i t ! The Milestone staff has made it as simple as possible f o r you to be photographed, by moving the studio on the campus. They ask only t h a t you co-operate. All p h o t o g r a p h e r s on the campus who wish to submit prints to the Milestone can do so immediately. Put the prints in an envelope with your name and college address on the back. If the Milestone can use your print, you will be contacted and paid f o r supplying the negative. Bring the prints to the Milestone office any time f r o m 11 to 11:30, or 1 to 1:30.

Thus by staging a program of plays in a room with no stage and with the imminent presentation of an original play by a Hope College student. Jack Curtis, Pallette and Masque is getting off to an early start this year on a new creative adventure. The cast for "Upward and Onward," is being directed by Mr. Avison. Betty Timmer and Russel Hofcon are the student directors for "The Valiant." Jack Curtis' play which has just been completed, is being rehearsed and revised preparatory to a test performance f o r P. & M. members before it will be given a public showing. Attendance at the November programs will be limited by lack of space allowed in the workshop. However the plays will have only two showings as too much expense would be involved if f u r t h e r performances were given.

A . H. Rypstra Wins Vollcer Fellowship A Volker Fellowship for graduate study in public administration has been awarded to Alfred H. Rypstra, a recent graduate of Hope College. These fellowships carry a stipend of $1200 a year, and are in addition to any rights under the GI bill. Mr. Rypstra is taking his graduate work at Wayne University in Detroit. While at Hope, he majored in social science. He was active in numerous organizations in the departments of music, forensics, and others. He was a member of the Fraternal Society, and in his Senior year he served as a member of the Student Council. During the war, he served as an Ensign in the United S t a t e s Naval Reserve. Later he returned to finish his college work at Hope, and graduated in February of this year.

The lecipient of the funds of this year's Mission Drive will be Talmadge College, Changchow, China. This school is the nucleus of a chain of schools in South Fukien Province, China, in which all-around Christian development is nurtured. As great physicians inspire medical centers, so the great teacher and "master builder of the mission," Dr. James Van Nest Talmage, prompted this great educational settlement.

Musical Arts Holds Meeting at Chapel Musical Arts held its first meeting Thursday, October 31, in the chapel auditorium. Alma Vander Hill was in charge of the program which included a piano solo by Betty Van Lente; organ solo, Ruth Probst; vocal solo's by Betty Christie and Bill Vander Yacht, and a violin solo by Jeff Wiersum. Plans were discussed for other programs and the Christmas Vesper to be held on Sunday, December 8.

This school is of special interest to Hope College students, as assistance in the reconstruction and refurnishing of the Talmage College dormitory is the theme of this year's Mission Drive. The Y.

This college, which was begun in 1888 in Kulangsu, has as its present enrollment 800 students. It really is a "middle school," but was given the name of "college" in the earlier days when schools of high school grade were aften so designated. Talmage College has been in refugee quarters in an inland village, as its school buildings and dormitory were heavily hit by bombs during the war. The students have now moved back into their devastated location at Changchow, to carry on with the same live spirit t h a t characterized their wartime activities.

the Anchor? A journalism major can get plenty of experience on the Anchor. But such is not the case, and such thinking is backward, and outmoded, at least according to Dean Olson, and Mrs. Walters, and Mr. Blakeslee it is . Today the Anchor is a six page bi-monthly paper. The staff consists entirely of volunteers, who spend many, many hours whipping the current editions into shape. And only those who have ever worked on a newspaper, either high school or college can appreciate the amount of energy expended by these students. What do they gain? That's a good question. I'm glad you brought that up. Practically nothing, as f a r as experience is concerned. The editor and associate editors become thoroughly familiar with headling and space counting, but actual journalism experience for the great majority of the staff is nil. Why? Another good question. Because the staff is under practically no supervision; they receive no constructive criticism. And, most important, it is an extra-curricular activity. There is no incentive to work, for nothing seems to be gained. A psychological barrier persists, and to achieve best performamie that barrier must be removed. But how? Were I to outline specific instructions for overcoming this barrier, I would be dictating through the medium of the Anchor the administrative policy for the college to follow. That is not the purpose of the editorial column, nor the newspaper. But, I can suggest a means for attaining the end desired. • One possible solution would be the formation of a journalism course, or courses. This cannot be accomplished overnight however, and such a plan is possibly formulating or has already formulated in the minds of those administering the policies of Hope College. We are seeking a solution for the present, and to me that solution can be solved in a very simple manner. Give credit where credit is due, credit here meaning hourly college credits. Certainly the time and

A college newspaper and yearbook reflect the quality of the college. It is their best publicity agent. It travels where students and alumni do not. It speaks; it is spoken about; it affirms; it rebuffs. It should be the institutions pride and joy. As much attention should be paid to publications as athletics; a good paper properly tutored becomes better, than best, and the best never lose. —Howie Koop

Bouquets *n Brickbats College papers always require cooperation from faculty as well as students. We wish to take this opportunity to thank all faculty members who "have been so helpful in volunteering information that is of student interest. Material concerning special projects or conventions attended, opinions on certain problems, or information about alumni have all been contributed by faculty this year. If there are any others who have material from time to tim'e, we would appreciate it if they would contact someone on the staff so the article can be written. If this is not possible, the Anchor mail box will serve as a clearinghouse. Students themselves are sometimes rather critical if something is omitted from an issue, but it is hard for the staff to know of all events and projects planned by the various campus organizations. Therefore, we are asking all presidents of groups to appoint someone to turn in news. However, whether articles are turned in by regular reporters or by someone else on campus, there is a deadline which must be met. Several organizations, especially fraternities and sororities have neglected promptness and punctuality in regard to this, and they will soon find out that sometime something which they wish published will be omitted because this deadline was disregarded. Promptness is a trait to be coveted, but it can be acquired by practice.

The Hope College band composed of forty-five members decked in blue and orange uniforms which were worn again for the first time n several years, added much to the lomecoming spirit.

Hope's Christian interest in sarospatak has also prompted the .'ollege directors to learn more ibout Hope's school system. Ac.•ording to a recent letter from iarospatak, they have been so avorably impressed by Hope's ictivities that they are trying to levelop Sarospatak on lines simlar to Hope. They wrote, "the ' u r t a n Calvanistic spirit t h a t can Je seen in the whole life of your :ollege has made us especially mppy, since the maintenance oi hat spirit is our ideal also since we have read the Hope Colege Anchor and Bulletin, a strong lesire has been working in us to levelop our school more like Hope College. We believe that to make certain changes would be in ac:ordance with our best traditions. We are convinced that they would inly mean a fuller realization ol )ur ideas and ideals." Since Sarospatak students and professors have been desperately in need of both clothing and money, they are deeply appreciative to those who contributed to the Hungarian project. As they wrote, 'We cannot express how grateful we are to all of you who have, in ;ome way or other, been so willing o come to our help.

His graduating class a t Hope numbered seven, four of whom are still living, which is quite remarkable when you consider the fact that Dr. Pieters is seventyseven years old.

Our new Professor was born into the family of Roelof Pieters in 1869. His f a t h e r at the time was pastor of a church at Alto, Wisconsin. When Dr. Pieters wafl but six months old, the family moved to Holland where his f a t h e r became pastor of the big, white church a t the corner of Ninth and Central Avenues. When eleven years old his f a t h e r passed away and his mother was faced with raising the family. The admirable job she did is evidenced by the fact that one son has written several agricultural books now found in most colleges here and abroad; a daughter, who later became president of Milwaukee's Downer College f o r women, wrote a thesis f o r Columbia University which was published as a book; and, still another daughter became the coauthor of "Government in Action" a textbook familiar to most students.

The conclusion drawn f r o m the meeting may be s u m m a r i z e d a s follows: It is very i m p o r t a n t for us now to g r a s p the m e a n i n g of two main points, control and inspection.

With feelings as expressed above the club asked, " I s National Sove r e i g n t y Possible In An Atomic A g e ? " and decided to use this a s a discussion topic at their next meeting, P.

The Eyes and Ears of Our Campus Equipped with pencil, p a p e r , and t h e b i g question, " W h a t do you t h i n k of Hope C o l l e g e ? " I e m e r g e d into t h e select social society of H o p e ' s C a m p u s . E n t e r i n g t h e door of Van R a a l t e Hall I stumbled into s o m e o n e who was leaving by t h e s a m e w a y — now I know why Hope wins its football g a m e s ! T h e powe r f u l c h a r a c t e r (I discovered when I got my wind b a c k ) w a s none o t h e r t h a n B.T.O. R I P C O L L I N S , o u r 204-pound, G-foot tackle hailing f r o m G r a n d Rapids, Michigan. Having' t h r o w n a t him t h e big question I received t h i s r e p l y : "I t h i n k Hope is a swell place and 1 like Coach V a n d e r b u s h , but I don't 1 ke e a t i n g in t h e Masonic T e m p l e — t h e r e ' s no f a m i l y s t y l e : first you pass the food t o the h o s t e s s , and t h e n the host, back and for h. and finally you c a n eat — oh, d j i i ' t g e t me s t a r t e d on t h a t s u b j e c t ! But really I t h i n k Hope is s w e l l ! " Who was it t h a t said, " T h e way to a m a n ' s h e a r t is t h r o u g h his s t o m a c h ? " D r i n k i n g a cup of coffee in the Kletz with G E O R G E D Y K S T R A , I a g a i n a p p r o a c h e d t h e subject at s t a k e . George, who comes to us f r o m D a n f o r t h , lllinoiH, g r a d u a t e d f r o m Hope in 1948 and entered the N a v y t h r e e m o n t h s later. Now he is back here doing p o s t - g r a d u a t e work. " G e o r g e , " I said, " y o u must like H o p e College or you wouldn't be b a c k ; w h a t is it you like about Hope?" " W e l l , " he replied, "1 g u e s s it's the f a c t t h a t it m a i n t a i n s such high scholastic s t a n d a r d s . " I p e r s i s t e d , " B u t o t h e r colleges h a v e high scholastic standa r d s — t h e r e m u s t be a n o t h e r reason." "I think it's the whole environment — 1 like the class of people; even t h o u g h t h e r e is a different class of people t h a n when 1 was here b e f o r e , 1 still like t h e m — 1 like t h e i r f r i e n d l i n e s s , and 1 feel at home h e r e . " In t h e library 1 ambled over in the direction of a g r e e n pot and discovered B I L L G O S H O R N of DouglaH, Michigan. Bill's opinion was, "I think it's a p r e t t y good place — a congenial school and f r i e n d l y ! " A l t h o u g h Bill hadn't previously planned on coming to Hope, he is now certain he shall r e m a i n at least two y e a r s and possibly t h r e e . He is very much ent h u s e d a b o u t the s t u d e n t - t e a c h e r relationship, but doesn't care too much f o r t h e r u b s prohibiting d a n c i n g and s m o k i n g on campus. " H o w e v e r , " he exclaimed, "I am willing to comply with the rules because I like Hope so w e l l ! " S p y i n g a b e a m i n g smile, I approached A L E X E B N E T H , o f C a t -

skill. New York. T o t h e question he e n t h u s i a s t i c a l l y replied: " H o p e is one of the finest colleges in t h e c o u n t r y , and so is t h e f a c u l t y s t a f f ! " He likes t h e f a c u l t y because they a r e so f r i e n d l y and because t h e y a r e so helpful to t h e students. " I t h i n k the s t u d e n t body is wond e r f u l ; a l t h o u g h I d o n ' t know too much a b o u t t h e f r e s h m a n class yet, t h e u p p e r c l a s s m e n are all so friendly."

For entertainment I tried everything but "pubbing"; Ice and roller skating, sight-seeing down In Robert Burns home shire, and rowing on Loch Lomond — the latter activity with a typical ginger-haired lassie, a wee secretary. Around the Loch, which Is only a few miles from the city, rise some of the highlands of Scotland. In a rather Isolated village the American Red Cross had leased a charming old hotel for rest purposes. The hotel was modern only to the point of being completely comfortable and cozy. In this quiet, enchanting atmosphere the "purple heart wearers" soaked up some well earned rest. Near the Loch I met an old f a r m e r with whom I discussed the crops — a good subject In Scotland as well as In America. His speech was easy enough to follow. The people of Glasgow have a harsher brogue than these country dwellers yet I believe are more easily understood than the English. I have often wished 1 had reserved more time for the exploration of Edinburgh. This beautiful capital city of Scotland Is spread over a number of high, rocky hills. The citizens, proud of their city, were eager to offer Information to the visiting Americans. Some told eagerly of their desire to become a separate nation again while others told of the benefits of being a member: of the British family. These people have reason to be proud for their thrift shows returns; however, there was no sign of stinginess nor poverty as f a r as I observed. But there are two apologies that the people o f E d i n b u r g h always make: the smoky Waverly Station right In the " f r o n t yard," and the ruins on the high mound in the center of the town. A monument in the shape of a Greek temple was projected for this spot but the front pillars cost so much it was abandoned. Now the hill resembles the Acropolis. The real, full fledged castle looking down from Its height above the city Is worth the climb if for nothing more than the view. One can see for miles on a clear day and the Firth of Forth, counterpart of the Firth of Clyde is clearly visible. Several months later I looked down on the Clyde f o r the last time f r o m the good plane "Blind Date" and then as now, recalled only the many good friends, the many good times, and the great country of Scotland.

HOPE TIED FOR FIRST IN MIAA Defeat Adrian in Battle 19-0; Have Little Trouble with Bulls

Dyke Climbers Switch From Grid To Courts

By virtue of their 19-0 shellacking of cellar position Adrian, the Hope Dutchmen moved into a three-way tie for first place in the MIAA race. Hillsdale dumped Alma to move them into the lead, while Kalamazoo was playing a non-conference game with Kent State. Saturday the title will be decided when Hope invades Hillsdale and Kalamazoo entertains Alma. The Dutch were forced to take to the air in their contest with the Adrian Bulldogs.

Veteran mentor Milton L. (Bud) Hinga issued the formal call a week ago, and some one hundred odd hardwood enthusiasts answered the summons. Included in the lot were a dozen lettei men, all veterans of championship ball, which leaves Jack Schouten, the "B" squad coach, with a wealth of material. According to pre-season dopesters, the Dutch from Hope, famous for their lightening fast break, will be tops in the conference, as well as in the state. j

first, and certain reliable people for heat. I had a chat with Major Rowan, local commandant of the U. S. Army, and he said; Anyway, I'm sure of a seat if the married vets leave their wives home. It's all quite a headache and I don't envy Prof. Kleis one bit; he has his hands full, and we should give him all the cooperation he will undoubtedly ask for. The local eleven did what was expected of them by downing Adrian 19-0. It was a muddy mess. My personal congratulations to De Vette and Yonkers on their passing ability; here's hoping either or both have the eye Saturday against that powerful Hillsdale outfit. The only possible way any of the three teams tied for first place can take undisputed possession is for Alma to upset Kazoo and Hope to down the Dales; Hope then will have the championship. Or, if Hillsdale wins and Kazoo loses, Hillsdale will be champs; all the Hornets can get is a tie, unless the Dale and Dutch battle to a photo-finish ending like 6-6 and they defeat Alma. In that case they will be undisputed champs. Quite a mess. Here's the MIAA standings: W. HOPE .8 Hillsdale 3 Kalamazoo 3 Alma 2 Albion 2 Adrian 0
