The Fast two were not included on the list but they also came from McClure & Co. Our library is attracting a good deal of attention in the community. During the summer the walls were redecorated. That led us into an awful mess for the walls had had several coats of calcimine which had to be washed off before the work of painting could begin. Now the walls are painted a mist blue and the woodwork has all been sanded and refinished. The old book shelves were replaced temporarily and new ones will be^built when the weather will halt the outdoor work. Since we have had such a nice variety of reference material added, I think it might be well to use any remaining funds for fiction. There are many calls for some of the newer books which we do not have. "For Whom the Bells Toll" and "How Green Was My Valley" and others of this type have been asked for. 1 have sent out boxes of books to twenty-five rural schools to supplement their reading. During the summer I made up the boxes of twenty-five books to a box, and we keep them circulating. We get a great number of children's books and do not need more of that type. I am telling you this so you can see how much the library means to the communities about as well as to our students. A project is underway now to reach children in the districts where teachers could not be secured. Attending to the needs of the library as well as teaching five subjects and doing the work of the principal fills my days more than full, and if I am not as prompt as I should be in giving you reports you perhaps can understand. Thank you so much for your interest and help in building our library. Sincerely yours, ZILDA R. HEUSINKVELD.

You smile weakly at "Mr." Vanden Berg, who unwillingly stoops to recover them, only to bump heads with Roger Patterson who tries to beat him to the draw. Chivalry is not dead. Coat Removing After listening to enuff to find the subject of today's lecture, no. 17%, you decide it's much too warm and set about to remove your coat. Both your neighbors jump to alertness and give a yank so hard you're sure your arm went right along with the sleeve. Then you settle down to watch the army play football out on the practice field and only by the steady drone of the Prof's voice. But this ecstacy lasts only a few minutes; prof decides to pull down all the shades and put on the lights. Now what? You can usually struggle through the ordeal of trying to read your' mail in class. Course, it's a good thing you haven't any today, cuz J a n Bogart, who sits in front of you, is absent. So you open your notebook and proceed to fill a page with your best Wednesday doodles. Just as you're dozing off the clang of the bell makes you jump right out of the seat, grab your books, and run into the hall before you realize class hasn't yet been dismissed.

Other interesting items are the co-eds on the campus. Why they call them co-eds is beyond me. Except for us A.S.T.P.'s there's practically no one for them to be "co" with. In the afternoon we work out in a Physical Training period of about an hour and a half. That's all there is to the day. Irving Berlin must be wrong — "This Can't Be the Army." Really though, the most alluring thing about this place is Sunday. There's so much to do.

Delphi "Vergadering" at 7:30 last Friday night, Nov. 5, introduced a lot of new talent. After the regular business meeting, Delphi sisters swung into step and marched straight to Holland, under the leadership of Jayne Smies and Velma Glewen, co-chairmen. The programs were made up in Delphi's traditional gold and blue and were in the form of a tiny Dutch shoe. Upon our arrival in Holland, amid the atmosphere of big red and yellow tulips, noisy wooden shoes and trim, painted windmills, the meeting began with "Eredienst Oefeninger," Dot Kooiker's reading of the 24th Psalm and Jeanne Cann's s i n g i n g of the Lord's Prayer, accompanied by Marge Emery at the piano. Irene Lundie's "Zevaarwegend," "Occupied Holland" gave everyone food for thought. Delphi was surprised and-proud to discover one true Dutchman in its midst, when Joyce Van Oss honored the meeting with several nursery rhymes given in the tongue of her fatherland. Delphi sisters were glad to bid welcome to Betty Ten Have as she rendered a few Tulip Time festival dance steps, dressed in true Dutch costume from the top of her real Lutch cap to the toes of her wooden shoes. The meeting closed with everyone sjnging the Delphi song. SIBYLLINE "And so they were married." Who? Lots of people in general, but Lorrie Timmer and Fritz Bertsch in particular. Sib's Friday night meeting was in honor of this big event in the life of one of its alumnae. After Jean de Ruiter led devotions, Fritz Colenbrander expounded her ideas on War Marriages in a serious paper which delt with thoughts prevalent in our minds these days. Appropriate music in the form of " 0 Promise Me" was sung by Betty Christie. To change the atmosphere from the serious to the lighter, "Shirl" Otteman took the floor to read her "NavyWoe-Is-Me-Blues" which turned out to be a mixture of slightly off the wave-length poetry and prose. Before the wedding reception there's always a wedding. Friday night was no exception. Amid the usual wailing, scattering of flowers, and blushing bride — a mock wedding took place; so that there was sufficient cause, aside from the real wedding being celebrated, to become enthusiastic about the inviting food of the reception which followed. The Sophs of the society received their first big thrill of the semester in watching the trays of empty glasses slide out of the room in the hands of the Freshmen.


A review of "Mail Through the Ages" was humorously presented by Jan Bogart, Inc. Aiding in the skif was Mary Liz Aldrich as a Greek messenger c a r r y i n g on winged feet an ancient communication. Milly Scholten was garbed in appropriate costume and came galloping in as the "pony express," and Nat ("The silver-winged monotone") Bosman represented a crippled postal employe who had just completed mail deliveries at Voorhees. Following a critic's report by Viv Tardiff, Sorosites all joined in the singing of the sorority songs. The previous week's meeting carried out the seasonal Hallowe'en theme with Elsie Parsons in charge. Spooks, pumpkins and black cats on a harvest moon listed Elsie's devotions as "Spirit Moves." Betty De Vries presented a paper on the origin and history of the weird festival and Viv Tardiff illustrated her news report with a colored map of the world battlefronts. Entertaining with a humorous duet were Hayseeds Norma Lemmer and Dotty Wick who sang "When the Moon Comes Over the Mountain," as a lovers' moonlight serenade. f Laughs of "ghoulish glee" greeted Rosie Atkins' rib-tickling jingles about her sorority sisters' fates. The tombstone rhymes, enough to turn any spook in his grave, were followed by Phyl Pelgrim's critic's report and the songs. Guests at the meetings the last two weeks have been Alumnae Virginia Kooiker and Anne Timmer, and "Aunty B."

At the time when the lavender of the western sky, and the gold of the setting sun faded into the deepness of the night, Dorian was elevated to the heights of a star. The star of guidance, Gertrude Maasen, stepped forward to offer a bit of reverence to the atmosphere in the form of scripture and prayer. As she faded into the darkness, the star of music, Helen Van Dyke, appeared on the scene singing "Stars in My Eyes." Gracefully she gave way to the star of wisdom, Edith Wolbrink, whose serious paper invoked memories of the bright star upon which we fix our gaze and in which we harbor our hopes for the future. Stars of amusement, Bunny Goff, Gertrude Maasen, Edith Wolbrink and Helen Van Dyke, announced by the lavender and gold star program, injected their bit of humor, with the presentation of "Look Out Hezekiah" by Boscom. All the Dorians formed the star circle and twinkled lightly in singing the Dorian song, led by Ronnie Finlaw, chairman of the program.

After shivering in the cold for considerable length of time, the members of the Men's Union finally found the key to their room and thereupon filed in to begin their literary-business meeting of November 5. Jay Van Zoeren opened the meeting with an appropriate prayer. He was followed by Adrian Bos, composer of the evening's serrious paper. Bos capably but seriously described "what makes a joke funny"; his theories were carried out by "Syl" Scorza, who delivered a humor paper containing "Advice to an American Navy Man." Wilbur "B." and Jeff Wiersum managed group singing, and the inevitable Koning delivered an impromptu — very impromptu — solo. The

Sports so far have been exclusively for the freshmen Amazons. Three times a week they drape their classy chassies with brief summer outfits and under the direction of Captain Jack, Lieutenant Rose and Sergeant Pinx they really go to town on a strictly military de luxe routine. They used to be able to display their gainly gams on the football field but since the army has taken over that strategic point and the gym they have been confined to closer quarters in the 2 ft. x 4 f t . gym across the street from army headquarters. But you can't put a good "freshie" down and they really vibrate the floor with "right turns," "forward marches, about faces," and "at eases," that the W.A.A.C. commander couldnt complain about (they keep telling Jack).

The Thesaurian Society held a devotional meeting Friday, November 5, based on the theme, "Christian Service." Invocation was read in the form of a prayer on service. This was followed by a short hymn sing directed by Genevieve Bussies with Lois Koopman at the piano. Marge Koopman read the scripture, John 13:1-11, after which there was a period of sentence prayers. Marilyn Zandstra gave an interesting review of the book, "Kagawa" by W. Axling. It dealt with the famous Japanese Missionary and the great Christian service he has done for his people. The devotional program was closed with the reading by Betty Jayne Smith, of a poem entitled "Service." The program was in charge of Jean Vander Wege with senior members taking part. After business had been discussed, the meeting was adjourned.

A letter home, written on Sorosis stationery, formed the program for a regular meeting of the clan Friday night, Nov. 5, when Dotty v/ichers was chief scribe. Chatty snatches of conversation introduced the numbers which opened the devotions by Mary Lou Hemmes. Eejay Kooiker's serious paper urged Sorosites to remember that "War is no time for jitters," and gave several rules for sane wartime living. Maxine Den Herder represented a Hope voice student as she sang "Time Stands Still" for the benefit of wistful-eyed members. Sorosites "sneaked a peek" at the week's news events as Lois Mary Hinkamp gave a concise summary of history-making occurrences. •

L w t Friday W.A.L. sponsored another "Coke-tail Party" in the sorority rooms in Voorhees Hall. After quenching their thirst on Cokes and filling up on potato chips, the students played cards, listened to records, or just sat down for some soulsatisfying talk.
