Co-operation By Stuart Wilson Editor's Note—Dr. Laurence Gould, this year's Hawkinson Memorial lecturer is the director of the U.S. Antarctic program f o r the International Geophysical Year. The following article is an attempt to acquaint us with some of the aspects of the IGY. Since July 1, more than 5,000 scientists f r o m 56 countries have been actively engaged in the most intense study of man's environment yet attempted. F o r the next fourteen months these men will carry on the ambitious probing into the hidden secrets of the e a r t h and its atmosphere. This is the period of the International Geophysical Year: a twentieth century achievement in international cooperation. Nature knows no international boundaries. A cold air mass moving out of Canada and across the United States may have been the result of a storm off the east coast of Asia. This same mass may move across the Atlantic, to cause s t o r m s in England and on the Continent. The men who study the physical forces and phenomena associated with the earth, the geophysicists, must cooperate. To bind such studies within national boundaries would soon mean the end of those sciences which study our environment. Fortunately, this is not the case. Today, in a world where the f r e e flow of knowledge is often hindered by political tension, we are witnessing a magnificent achievement in international cooperation in the work being carried on during the IGY. An Adventure in International Science At this moment, scientists are working in the remote areas of the world. They are manning seismological stations on tiny islands in the v a s t Pacific. They are trekking across the white expanse of Antarctica to measure the thickness of the polar ice-cap. Countless individual projects are being carried on simultaneously throughout the world. The temperature, pressure, wind speed, and humidity of the atmosphere a t altitudes up to 100,000 feet are being measured. Some scientists are engaged in studying the deep ocean currents about which little is known. Observations are being made in an effort to discover some of the things we t a k e f o r granted such as the precise shape of the earth and the exact location of the continents. All over the world scientists are probing into the very core of the e a r t h and studying the outermost

limits of the atmosphere 800 miles into space. This didn't j u s t happen. The story of the International Geophysical Year is the story of — An Adventure in Internationa! Relations The story of scientific cooperation is not a new one. In the latt e r p a r t of the Nineteenth Century, the First International Polar Year was conducted. F i f t y years later, in 1932-33 the studies were resumed in the N o r t h Polar regions. In 1950, a g r o u p of scientists gathered informally in Washington, D.C. to discuss the Third Polar Year. They felt, because of the rapid advance of scientific study, it would be necessary to increase the world's geophysical knowledge before 1982. Since the period 195758 was expected to be a year of intense solar activity, thus presenting an excellent opportunity of the study of atmospheric phenomena, they proposed t h a t the date of the Third Year be advanced. A f t e r the proposal received strong endorsement, the work of planning and organization began. It was carried on through the network of interconnected scientific organizations and unions which covers all the countries of the world. Finally, in 1956, the participating nations began establishing their bases and stations. The International Geophysical Year is more t h a n a scientific undertaking. The experiences of planning and organization are just as important to the field of international relations as the contributions these studies will make to science. The scientists of 56 countries have demonstrated to the world that there can be cooperation among people despite differences in national traditions, economic status, and ideology. President Eisenhower has written, concerning the IGY, t h a t it should "very materially strengthen our bonds with the many cooperating nations a n d make a constructive contribution to the solution of mutual problems."

Frats Enter Last Weeks of Rushing ARCADIAN: Last week, Friday, Nov. 1, the Arkies held a joint literary meeting with the A.S.A. Sorority. Members of both groups took p a r t in the p r o g r a m . Tonight, Nov. 8, the Arkies will hold a literary meeting. It will begin at 7:45 in the chapel basement. L a r r y Schut will give the humor paper and P e t e r Cupery will present the serious topic: Aviation Aids. Other rushing activities include an open house Sunday, Nov. 10, which will be held a f t e r church f o r all rushees and their dates, and a regular open house on Wednesday, Nov. 13. On Nov. 15, the Arkies will hold their annual square dance. The rushees are invited to all these events and are urged to get dates for the open house on Nov. 10 and also for the square dance on Nov. 15. COSMOPOLITAN: This past week, Friday, Nov. 1, the Cosmopolitan f r a t e r n i t y held their annual fall smoker. Saturday evening the Cosmos gave a "space p a r t y " for all rushees. The house was decorated to give the appearance of a space ship. Games were played and prizes w e r e awarded f o r the best costume representing life in the year 2000.

Tomorrow the Cosmo house will be open all day f o r the "Moms and Dads" of all actives and interested rushees.

The United Nations During the past year, the spotlight of the world has been trained very intensively upon the United Nations. The two m a j o r crises of last year, t h a t of the Suez and H u n g a r y , shook the world and the eyes of mankind turned to the United Nations. Two weeks ago the United Nations week was celebrated all over the nation. Oftentimes, the questions were asked as to how the United Nations has fared during this time of trial and testing, how it has responded to the hopes, fears, and p r a y e r s of all the different people in the world, what its actions have been and what lessons have been learned f r o m the ordeals. In the Hungarian crisis, the United Nations condemned the U.S.S.R. f o r the violation of the charter depriving H u n g a r y of its liberty and independence. Conditions in Hung a r y were investigated by a committee established by the General Assembly, which goes to show t h a t the United Nations was on the job. In the Middle E a s t crisis, the U n i t e d Nations action brought about the removal of British, French and Israeli forces f r o m E g y p t and in the establishment of a United Nations Emergency F o r c e considered the forerunner of a United Nations Army. The United Nations have helped prevent f u r t h e r destruction and saved many, many lives. During the United Nations week, a plan was made t h a t all the people of this universe should dedicate themselves to the task of helping governments settle their differences; then perhaps, the time may come when "swords shall be beaten into plowshares and nations shall not raise up swords against naions, neither shall they learn w a r any more." —Nena Lila Mih

Learning Comes Easy At Heart of America Washington, D.C.—To a student, this can be the most pulsating city in the world. As a university cent e r of politics, government, and international affairs, Washington is an inexhaustible source of study. And few people are a p t to learn so much as the Washington Semest e r student.

vironment, timeliness and profession of the lecturer, most students reveal t h a t they a r e able to retain the information with astonishing ease.

Here, under competent advisers, they study the intricacies of gove r n m e n t first hand. Their classroom, in seminar classes, the m a j o r p a r t of their program, may be the gallery of the House, a Senate committee caucus room, the auditorium of the Library of Congress, or anywhere else government officials work. Their teacher may be a Senator, a representative, a Supreme Court Justice, a staff member of a legislative committee, or some other ranking U.S. official. The program itself is in its eleventh year. Its alumni regard it as one of the most interesting and illuminating semesters of their college careers. It was originated primarily through the efforts of Dr. Catheryn Seckler-Hudson, dean of the college of government and public administration a t American University. As a student of government a t a midwestern college, she was advised by the President to spend some time in the Nation's capital if she ever really wanted to know government. "When I stood on the steps of the Capitol Building," she recalls, "somehow those b o o k s which I had memorized came alive. The words turned into reality." Dean Hudson s p e n t several months here. However, hers was a trial and error study. She had nothing planned and was able to meet few people who really knew w h a t makes the various departments function. Merely through observation, she learned a g r e a t deal, but most of all she began to "feel government". Now Washington semester students are reaping the benefits of her experience. The almost 100 students each semester are divided into three units, each of which has its particular adviser who a r r a n g e s for people "in-the-know" to address the students. These seminars probably a r e the only relatively easy way a student can learn many of these things about Washington's biggest business. Much of the material presented is not to be found in text books. And always the lectures are illuminated by current events. Although they are only scheduled f o r one hour, most of them last more t h a n two hours. A question and a n s w e r period takes up much of the time. Not only are the seminars interesting, but because of the en-

terviews and first-hand observation. In order to be approved, the project ordinarily has to be one which being in Washington would particularly facilitate. In the course of work on the project, students often get to speak to some of the top officials in the U.S. government. In addition to the project and seminar, each of which is worth three hours credit, the semesterer also takes two or three regularly scheduled college courses in the night school of American University. A decidedly increased interest in national affairs is evident in every student. Although they a r e not required to, each student keeps abreast of national and international happenings. A quiz on Russia's new "sputnik" would probable result in A's for all them. Practically all " s e m e s t e r e r s " made a special t r i p to the vicinity of the White House last week to see rabble rouser John K a s p e r in action. E V E R Y T H I N G here is not work, though — if the seminars and project can be called t h a t . The semest e r e r s are not bookworms, by a long shot. One u n i t is planning to trick-or-treat the embassies on Halloween. Practically every Saturday t h e r e is a motorcade to some football game. Sunday night each unit gets t o g e t h e r for dinner a t one of Washington's finest nationality r e s t a u r a n t s . Season tickets f o r the Washington concert season are purchased by semesterers like L a f a y e t t e game tickets are bought at Lehigh. (Or Calvin game tickets a t Hope!) One unit adviser said, "On this program, extracurricular activities are not advised—they are required. This is as much a part of the stay in Washington as classroom work." * N O T E : If anyone is interested in attending the American University f o r the Washington Semester prog r a m , contact Dr. Van Putten.

Hope Overpowers Olivet Comets 28-7 Hope College's football eleven won its third MIAA game last Saturday, knocking off the cellardwelling Olivet 28-7 on the Comets' home field. The win placed Hope in a position to tie Albion f o r second spot in MIAA football if they can vanquish the Britons tomorrow a t the Mom and Dad's game. Hillsdale has already clinched a f o u r t h s t r a i g h t title with five wins and no losses. All the reserves got a chance to see action in the Saturday contest and performed well. For many it was their first appearance this year. Two third-stringers, f r e s h men quarterback R o n F o x and f r e s h m a n halfback John Vandenburg, combined their talents to produce Hope's fourth touchdown. Fox passed to Vanden Burg in the end zone in a play which covered 44 yard. Bill Huibregtse followed with his fourth s t r a i g h t conversion. Hope's first score came in the second quarter. Mert Vanderlind sneaked in f r o m the one yard line a f t e r Ty Rupp had carried the ball 17 yards in two tries. Later, end Curt Menning fell on a Comet fumble to give Hope possession with goal to go on the six. Bekius carried the ball in f r o m there. Bekius scored his second touchdown of the g a m e in the third quarter. He intercepted an Olivet pass on the f o r t y and ran it back to the five where, two plays later, he barrelled into the end zone. Olivet's lone Touchdown came a f t e r a f o r t y yard sustained drive in the final quarter. Halfback Bob Jones plunged over from the one and the e x t r a point was added. This marked the first score f o r Olivet in MIAA play t h i s season. The defeat was their nineteenth in a row. Hope w a s denied two more scores a f t e r long r u n s when penalties were called, or when the Dutch lost the ball on a fumble. A holding penalty nullified one touchdown an offside penalty another, and a fumble a third. The Dutchmen play host to the Albion Britons tomorrow a t Riverview Park. A Hope victory will deadlock t h e two t e a m s f o r second place in the MIAA football standings this season. Last week, Albion defeated Alma 13-6. In another g a m e Hillsdale trounced Kalamazoo 48-0.

This week is the last scheduled week f o r i n t e r f r a t touch football, but it will be a busy one. Besides the regularly scheduled games, there are others which have to be made up, having been postpond earlier. Offensive and defensive statistics as well as the individual scoring will be published as soon as all games have been cmpleted. The scores of Monday afternoon's games were:

Nash and Van Gilder, Albion's ball-carrying backs, will pose a t h r e a t to Hope's defense if they cannot be stopped. Both men are way up among the individual ground-gainers in the league, and provide most of Albion's scoring drive. Albion's offense r a n k s second only to Hillsdale in the conference. However s t a t i s t i c s show t h a t Hope is among the leaders in ground defense f o r the nation's small colleges, allowing only a shade over ninety-five yards on the ground to their opponents each game. Hope's pass defense has sparkled consistently too this season. In addition Hope has held its MIAA opponents to 28 points in five games. Hillsdale leads in this department, surrendering 27 points. The Briton defenders have performed almost as well, 45 points being scored against them. There is every indication t h a t t h e game will be another low-scoring, closely f o u g h t contest right down to the final gun. Last year, Hope edged Albion in a thriller, 18-13.

Hope's gridders will not have an easy task tomorrow when they meet the Albion Britons a t Riverview Park. Moms and Dads present will witness two evenly matched teams battle it out. A Hope victory would give them a tie in the MIAA with Albion, both squads t h e n finishing with 4-2 records in second place. However, should the Britons be the victors, Hope will slide back into fourth place behind Alma. The Scots wound up their MIAA season last weekend, suffering a 13-6 setback at the hands of Albion. Alma finished with three wins, two losses, and one tie which was a g a i n s t the fifth place Kalamazoo Hornets.
