In this mercenary age, the classes there are divided, not according to wealth, but are based upon the old aristocracy; the relatively large upper class being comprised of pure white (mostly Spanish). The middle class is very small, and the very large lower class is made up mostly of the mixed Indian and Negro races.

Reverend Mr. Hoogstra Speaks at YM Meeting T h e Reverend Mr. Hoogstra Christian Reformed Minister in Holland, gave an inspiring talk on "Powerless Power," at the YM meeting held on Ocotber 23. His theme was that no m a t t e r what devastation and power are .vrought against the Christian church, faith will always remain in the hearts of the true Christian. No force of any size can drive Christianity out of the heart of mankind. However, other powers, physical and mental, as s t r o n g as they may be do not have the power of Christianity.

Majors in Education Begin Practice Teaching

Selections are based on character, scholarship, leadership in extra-curricular activities, and potentiality for f u t u r e usefulness to business and society. A committee composed of Hope College faculty members makes the actual nomination. Those students graduating in 1946 were eligible for this honor. Four main functions are performed by Who's Who Among Students. At the beginning of college life it o f f e r s an incentive to Jo better work, and finally it acts as a compensation to students for what they have already achieved. Also, it acts as a standard of measurement for students comparable to other recognized scholastic and sen-ice organizations. The most important function of all is the recommendation of successful students to the business world. This publication is the only national means of recognition for students which is devoid of all fees and dues.

Venezuelan Scholar Visits on Campus Vivacious and attractive Miss Alvarez was born in Caracas, the capital of Venezuela. Here she was educated and t a u g h t Spanish g r a m m a r for seven years before she came to the United States. An American librarian in Caracas interested her in library work. She applied for a fellowship and received it. She calls it "luck," but we know better A f t e r studying library science at the University of North Carolina for a year, she chose to work at the University of Michigan for her ma s te r s which she will obtain in '-Ki. She has a sister who teaches Spanish at Northwestern University. When Miss Alvarez has received her Masters degree and has ioured the country to see our libraries, she and her sister plan to return to Caracas to teach and emalj a m a t e library science with part of the national library. She is a great progressive thinker, a realist and a d r e a m e r . These ittributes, combined with her great .ove for Venezuela, make her highv dvnamic and resourceful.

No matter what or

where the school, the absence of fraternities would only mean the substitution of another type of organization, because students will naturally divide into groups of some sort, official or not. So basically it's all the same difference, except that each type of group has certain advantages and disadvantages—which in our opinion more or less balance each other, and we could go on record as picking the f r a t e r n i t y system as the Ipsser of two evils.

In other words, by the time we are going to initiate a member, we know him well enough to tell that he is a good sport, so that justification of the hazing practiced by fraternities and sororities seems stretching the point. Besides, taking some of the actives "little jokes" would prove the character of no one; in fact if the initiate rebelled, t h a t would be more a sign of his worth, in our opinion.

CONTEMPLATIONS Should I be an Introvert A flower on the wall Watching life go by me And enter not at all? Or should I be an extrovert In the center of the crowd And not see all life's teachings For they're covered with a shroud? I guess I'll be a wallflower And try to recollect Then enter in the crowd With a larger intellect. Ruth J . Quant.

Along with these more gruelling traditions are the comparatively harmless and silly parts of the initiation. We cannot condemn these on any other grounds than that they are merely childish and, as we had the idea t h a t college was \ place where parents sent their children with the hope that they tome home a little more grown up, we figure someone might be disillusioned.

IN Ifatita, Homecoming week-end is now a pleasant memory and all dorm students can retire in nice clean ( ? ) rooms (result of open house) and study for the remainder of the semester. (Nice thought anyway wasn't i t ? ) The Frosh-Soph pull was really wonderful. Congrats and liniment for the Frosh. My heart went out for Mr. TaniH when he gently descended the bank of Black River and slowly placed his foot in the tepid water. Sophomores, however, can claim one victory for the week-end.

"Gotta be this or t h a t " — but Congress hasn't decided as yet. And John Q. Public hasn't stated his ayes or nays either. What is your opinion concerning the subject of Compulsory Military Training f o r 18-year-olds? Some think the plan will lead to militarism, others believe it will build strong moral as well as physical strength, and still others find it difficult to take a stand for fear t h a t science may change f u t u r e w a r f a r e entirely. Then, too, the plan worked splendidly in Russia and even in Germany; but it failed in France. Perhaps a definite statement of the blueprint of the plan is needful at this point. It is estimated that 1,200,000 youth in our country will reach the military age of 18 each y e i r . Of this amount 225,000 are expected to be rejected because of complete physicaf or mental incapabilities. The a r m y will claim approximately 700,000 men and the navy 275,000 men. Aptitude tests will be administered upon entrance to help placement problems. Each trainee will receive excellent medical care during his service. Cadet uniforms will undoubtedly be issued to distinguish the trainees f r o m those in the regular army and navy. The first nine weeks of the program will be devoted to basic training. Specialized training will follow with stress placed on the technical aspects of modem warfare. Three hours each week will be spent on physical training. A f t e r the one required year of training the cadets will have the opportunity to continue their training and to pass on to Officers' Candidate School a f t e r which they will become reserve Second Lieutenants. They also may receive reserve commissions through college ROTC units which will be conducted a t a post-graduate military level. For the first four or five y e a r ; of the program equipment t h a t is left over from this last war will be used. Thus the cost per trainee will be about $1,450. A f t e r these first years the cost will be increased to about $2,000 per trainee.

Varsity Basket Ball Begins As Schouten, Hinga Start Developing Athletic Talent Lt. Alvm Vandenbush Returns t o Hope; Replaces M. Hinga as Athletic Coach Two major events have taken place in Hope's sports department in the past weeks. The first of these is the fact that after a lapse of two seasons, Hope is once again getting a basketball squad together. Last week Carnegie gym was a scene of activity as men from local and distant parts of the country came together to develop into a team. Trainer Jack Schouten will take the boys in hand for about three weeks to get them in shape and then Coach Hinga will take over. Talent Reports Among the thirty fellows t h a t turned out were Dick Van Doren, Ralph Cornell, Bill Brown, Milt Peterson, Gerard Van Heest, Dan Hakken, Dick Wise, Bill Hoekinga, Don Ingham, John Parsons, Gene Rothi, and James Yuk. Others were Paul Tanis, Bill Miedema, Jack Stegeman, Phil Meengs, John Smallegan and Charles Zeerip, all from outside of Holland. Local talent included Simon Sybesma, Clarence Hopkins, Bob Burton, Don Rinkes, Clair Van Liere, Ken Zuverink, Collins Ottipoby, Lloyd Heneveld, J a y Petter, Roger Kempers, Jim Klomparens and J a y Weener. A schedule has not yet been set up but officials of the college are working on a card for twelve games or more. New Coach The second event in the sports department was the announcement of Dr. Lubbers that Hope was to have a new coach. The new coach who will take Coach Hinga's place, is Lt. Alvin W. Vandenbush. Vandenbush will return to his Alma Mater which he left in 192f). His life from 1929 on has been filled with sport work . He graduated from Hope a f t e r earning three letters in football, two in basketball and one in track. From Hope he went to Bessemer where he assisted the coach in football and coached junior high basketball. From 1930 until 1937 he was head

coqch at Grandville High school, and in 1938 and 1939 along with his football, baseball and basketball coaching at Grandville, he assisted the coach at Davis Tech in football. Then he went to South High in Grand Rapids and developed highly capable teams which won the city championship in 1939 and 1940. In February, 1943, Lt. Vandenbush entered into his Naval career. He saw active duty on merchant ships as a gunnery officer in the Atlantic. He received his discharge from the Navy on October 10, 1945, and took up his duties here at Hope November 1. We of the Anchor Sports Department put out our best welcome mat and wish you, Coach Vandenbush, the best of luck iiuthe f u t u r e sport activities.

In+ramural Basketball Begins Monday Evening Jack Schouten announces that men's intramural basketball will and league standings will be combegin Monday evening, 7:00-9:00. Definite teams will be formed, piled and published. Jimmy Muddel is the student member in charge. All men on the campus are invited to try their luck at "swishers" and free throws.

" S u m m e r — t h a t old Indian Summer—the tear t h a t comes a f t e r June-time laughter." You all know the song and you. all know the setting. It's the time when it's great to be living. . Most of the birds have taken their winter,tour.south, but a few are still left and you can hear them chattering in a high pitched soprano, over the latest gossip from their wooded hideaways. The squirrels are taking their pre-winter outings and, having stripped the -trees of all possible vitamins, they can find nothing better to do than play hideand-seek around the piles of leaves. Autumn — a time for wienieroasts and hikes, football games, crowds and cheering, hay-rides and baseball in the empty lot, study and play. It's a season of colors— a mixture of the ethereal with the physical . . . red leaves . . . bright sweaters . ,. . flared skirts . . . strolling couples . . . blue skies . . . crunching leaves . . . caressing breeze . . . and a beautiful vague feeling of happiness. Autumn is the season the poets love to write about. And why not? I should think even a bookworm would want to turn nature loving when they hear the wind rustle softly through half-naked trees as the falling leaves wave a graceful good-bye to their summer home en route to Mother Earth. Autumn was made for the artists too. It's amazing to me that a swish of a brush, a dab here and there can make tangible an autumn scene with its varying green, and amber all merged into one heterogeneous whole. It doesn't take a painter or an artist to love nature in the fall — the subtle grandeur of white billowy clouds moving slowly across the blue horizon like a herd of snow white sheep being guided by some unknown, unseen shepherd; the playful whirlpool of leaves caught in a wind current to finally settle over the yet green

.rass . . . the smell of twilight oonfires . . . the crisp cool air . . . i twinkling s t a r . . . and a full noon. Autumn was made by God /or Love and Peace. It's hard to believe t h a t last Autumn nations were fighting nations at a time like this. Allied .roops were battling their way through scenic France and Italy. Foxholes nestled in the mountains jf Bavaria and homesick soldiers were f o r g i n g toward the Rhine. The romantic moonlit isles of the Pacific were silent in war, and the jalm trees swayed to the music jf guns. Where there should have been songs there were groans, where there should have been life there was death. Last Autumn leaves were falling on Europe's battlefields . .. . the wind whistled through the sniper-infested trees of Okinawa . . . the azure skies were filled with birds of war . . . twinkling stars saw boys of every nation tense with fear, full of hate, and tired of war. Now our boys a i e coming back and the world is breathing peace again. The smell of burning leaves is twice as sweet — laughter is twice as gay — and hearts are twice as light. But they have not forgotten the blood-stained soil of Guam and Tarawa, they have not forgotten the massacre a t Cassion, the strife at Dunkirk, the battle of the Rhin3, the conflict f o r Berlin. They have not forgotten the skies full of screaming planes, the air thick with bullets, the cold feel of the ground, the gnawing hunger, the last word of a dying soldier. Autumn is just one of the things we've always had, but this year we should enjoy it and all it brings, once for ourselves and again for our dead and our brothers who fought to make it possible to live and laugh and love. Softly with' a summer breeze it sends a promise and a prayer of thanks — lest we forget.
