Fraternity Membership . . . Many Advantages During the rushing season, the perennial question which is asked by most f r e s h m e n is: " W h y should I join a f r a t e r n i t y ? " And, f r o m each f r a t e r n i t y man to whom this question is posed, t h e r e are undoubtly received numerous answers. Some men join a f r a t e r n i t y f o r the social activities, others for intellectual betterment, and still other men join f o r fellowship. In this editorial I have a t t e m p t e d to point out the many advantages gained through f r a t e r n i t y membership. To me, the core benefit of f r a t e r n i t y life is the brotherhood which in t u r n permeates into all the other aspects of a f r a t e r n i t y ' s activities. When choosing a f r a t e r n i t y , generally the one is selected whose members you like best, whose members seem to have the same values and goals as yourself or t h e one which your friends are seriously considering of joining. Hence, f r o m the beginning of f r a t e r n i t y life one is with a group of men with whom he holds many things in common.

More than t h a t ; the entire construction of f a n t a s y lies in the technique of the "big lie."

Spice and Crumbs by Richard Jaarsma

One of the defects, it seems to me, of modern, American education is the f a c t t h a t most students must necessarily m a n u f a c t u r e some sort of positive s t a t e m e n t concerning its worth. We've all at one time or another, said something like "Ah yes, college is wonderful. I never realized the power of the German language until I took German in college.' This may sound as if it came from the h e a r t but I believe we're e x a g g e r a t i n g just a teensy-weensy bit. You see, it is just a cover-up f o r the f a c t that we can't t r a n s l a t e the German into decent English. We feel, however, t h a t we are bound to have picked up enough German to say things like this and to j u s t i f y our spending good money f o r a college education while the people in India are starving. It is one of the ironies of life. You are all f a m i l i a r with a good German sentence. It is a magnificent jumble of adjectives, nouns and way a t the end a lone verb. F o r example: " J e t z t gait er u n t e r seinen j u n g e r e n Kollegen und P^reunden f u r einen famosen Bruder und begabten Kerl, der in Angelegenheiten der Gesselligkeit und des Geschmacks als F u r h e r gait und um R a t g e f r a g t wurde." Now on the f a c e of it this may seem wonderfully powerful and lovely. But let's look a t a f a i r l y good translation of this: Now passed f o r he under his younger colleagues and f r i e n d s undisputed f o r a capital b r o t h e r and gifted fellow, who in affairs of parties and taste as leader passed f o r and f o r (around) Justice asked to become." I quote f r o m H e r m a n n Hesse's "Kleine Welt." Now when we are confronted with such a translation, can we still honestly say t h a t the German language h a s power and f e e l i n g ? And yet you will meet people who will vehemently assert t h a t it is so. I don't know what t h e r e is to be done about them, but the simplest t h i n g would be to kill them as soon as the symptoms appear. Not only is German at f a u l t when it comes to making sense out of their sentences, however powerful they m a y be. Is it right t h a t

we should be asked to acclaim the beauty of the following: "Wir gehen uber die nebelrollenden mit weissem Schnei bedeckten und kalten Felden, weil wir zu Hause kommen m u s s e n ? " We go on top of the fog-rolling with white snow covered and cold fields, while we to Home to come must. If we are to work together with Germany f o r a united world something must be done about this sort of thing. If it is impossible f o r a German to say or write something in language that can be translated into good English, I am a f r a i d t h a t we m u s t drop all diplomatic relations with them. There is also this m a t t e r of denoting whether an object is masculine, feminine or neuter. In E n g lish we more or less let t h i n g s work themselves out, but not so the Germans. They m u s t categorize everything into its respective genders and it comes as no surprise to anyone when we find that this is not the most perfect system in the world. F o r this reason "Madchen"—"girl" comes out neuter, whereas "Die T u r " — " t h e door" is feminine. This isn't all however, if something is, let us say, feminine, the German must emphasize this by adding the suffix -inn so t h a t you get something like this "Die Englanderinn" which translated comes out "the she-Englishwoman." It is too ridiculous to even bother with. When it seems t h a t you have finally learned the tricks of the language, however, it usually means t h a t you haven't run across a word like this: "Oberammergaurfestspielsalpenkrauterfruckstuckase . ' ' When I saw this word I went home to bed with a high fever (104) sobbing quietly all the while. I later found out t h a t it was some kind of cheese eaten only in the village of Oberammergau where the Passion Plays are held every ten years; but it scared me a w a y f r o m the German language so successfully t h a t whenever I see a word such as "Gegenubergetrobenkeit" or "Verwaslandungszeile" I begin to chew quietly on the p a p e r or whatever else is handy. In f a c t I feel kind of f u n n y right now. Now relax, hahaha. T a k e it easy, xxxxxxxx, I'll be all right, Ahahah hahahahahahahahxxxxx

The famous "Singing Boys of Mexico," considered one of the finest choirs in the world, will appear Monday, November 10, a t 8 p.m. in the Holland Civic Center according to Dr. Morrette Rider, president of the Holland Civic Music Association. This is the second in a series of six concerts presented by tho Association during its 1958-59 season. The group is composed of thirtytwo selected voices under the leadership of Maestro Luis Berber, Mexico's foremost choral director, and has an extraordinary history. For over two hundred years, the tradition of g r e a t music has been nurtured in the oldest Conservatory of Music in the Americas. This is the picturesque Colegio de las Rosas in Morelia, founded in 1743. Here the boys of t h e famous choir, "Los Ninos Cantores de Moreliz," study and sing, as hundreds of others have s u n g before them. In 1949 the director of the conservatory, Maestro Miguel Bernal

Jimenez, determined to form a choir which would rival the best in the world, and seeking the best possible leadership prevailed upon Maestro Romano Picutti, hen leader of the Vienna Choir Boys, to come to Moielia. Since t h a t time, the Ninos Cantores de Morelia have achieved phenomenal success. They have received ovations in Mexico City's huge Palacio de Bellas Artes, have given special performances f o r the President of the Republic, and f o r the P r i m a t e of the Mexican Church, and have toured central America and the United S t a t e s with g r e a t acclaim. Their repertoire ranges f r o m ancient music of the Church to modern Mexican folk songs. When the choir returned to Mexico City in 1952 f o r a performance of Mozart's Requiem, critics agreed t h a t the Ninos Cantores had " a r rived" as one of the g r e a t choirs of the world. The g r o u p is now making its third tour of the United States.

Hope S e e k s Outright Championship Tomorrow Meet the Dutch

Hope Wallops Olivet

<

The Albion College Britons today stand as the last remaining obstacle f o r the fighting Dutch in their quest f o r the undisputed MIAA crown, following a record breaking 61-0 rout of Olivet College last Saturday a f t e r n o o n a t Riverview Park. With only 2,000 f a n s looking on, including parents of the Hope t e a m members as part of Mon and Dad's Day celebration, the Dutch rolled to a new school football scoring record and tied a m a r k f o r number of touchdowns scored in one game. The old record f o r the school was 59 points scored in 1956, also against Olivet. The win also assured Hope a share of the conference crown.

Hope, the last of Michigan's unbeaten and untied college football teams, boosted its season's m a r k to 7-0 and extended its consecutive win streak to 10 games. F o r Olivet, it was their 29th s t r a i g h t setback. This losing string reaches back to 1955 season. Olivet has been outscored 222 to 20 in seven losing games so f a r this season.

Ron Bekius — Fullback Ron was a p a r t time regular last season. He is a senior j u s t under 6 feet and tips the scales at 180 pounds. He is the MIAA's leading scorer with 55 points and second in state scoring with 73 f o r the year. He is also a pacer in rushing with 303 yards in 47 att e m p t s f o r a fine average of 6.4 yards per carry. He is f r o m Holland.
