"Back to work" as the saying goes is just what the F r e s h m a n and Sophomore girls have been doing f o r the p a s t week — getting back to work and down to work. The gals have really been practicing f o r Nykerk j u s t like the boys did f o r the Pull about a month ago. The Freshman and Junior music chairmen have selected "The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" f o r the girls to present as t h e i r musical selection. This will be presented in competition with "Clambake" f r o m Carousel which the Sophomore girls will stage. T h e Wallflower, a play about a typical recurring college problem as the name indicates, will be produced by the Freshman class. Judy Tysse, J u d y Van Dyke, Carol Nieuwsma, Carol Rylance, and Dorene T o r n g a compose the cast for this play. The sophomores, on the other hand, have chosen Angels of Mercy f o r their dramatic production. This play depicts a ladies first aid group. Those s t a g i n g this production include Hetty Vos, Anne De Pree, Una H u n t , Carol Luth, and Tedda De Vries. "Branches Heavenward" is the title Mary Ann Klaaren has chosen f o r her oration. The oration will be built around an analogy symbolizing the government of the world to various trees, especially emphasizing youth's responsibility in today's world. J a n Van Peursem has decided upon "Act well your part, therein the honor lies" taken f r o m Pope as her thesis. The girls continue to work steadily " p u t t i n g in t h e i r t i m e " every day. In another week the clash will resound. But until t h a t time, the winner remains a m y s t e r y and the girls keep working.

Delta Phi Alpha Plans Banquet The Hope chapter of Delta Phi Alpha, national German honorary f r a t e r n i t y , will begin the year with a banquet meeting December 6 at 7:00 p.m. The p r o g r a m will consist of entertainment provided by members of the f r a t e r n i t y who have toured Europe during the past summer. The purpose of Delta Phi Alpha is to f o s t e r interest in t h e German language and culture.

Sabastian Hardacre, the banker villian, a t t e m p t s to foreclose on an old family mortgage and thus gain possesion of the family mine and win the hand of lovely Melody. His refarious a t t e m p t s are foiled, and the hero, recalling once again the words of his dying f a t h e r , "Your s t r e n g t h will be the s t r e n g t h of ten if but your hearts are pure", triumphs in the end.

Leprosy Expert Here Wednesday ForTa Ik Chapel speaker on Wednesday, November 14th, will be Dr. Robert Cochrane, the leading leprologist in the world, and technical medical adviser to the American Leprosy Missions, Inc. Dr. Cochrane, in this country f o r a three-month speaking tour, is being brought to Hope College by the Grand Rapids Leprosy Committee, working with Dr. Henry Voogd of the college department of Bible and Religion. Despite Dr. Cochrane's intensive work with the A.L.M., he has often been in demand by the governments of other countries as a consultant in his field. Before joining that group, he served aas director of several Leper sanitoriums in India, and h a s instituted the use of several new drugs in the t r e a t ment of leprosy. In addition to m a n y p a p e r s on various aspects of the t r e a t m e n t of the disease which have been prepared by Dr. Cochrane, he is also the a u t h o r of the Practical Textbook of Leprosy, a work which has become t h e standard t e x t f o r the study of this disease in many medical schools.

The Teacher Problem Just about everyone interested in education is talking about the problem of the teacher shortage. College newspapers are no exception, as this editorial from the Daily Texan proves:

Communities maturely interested in obtaining the best possible education for their children are raising teachers' salaries. Young men are better able to support a wife on the salary of a beginning teacher. In Texas, the educators are experimenting with television training f o r teaching. Unemployed wives with high skill in some phase of school instruction, but unacquainted with education techniques are getting teaching degrees by closed circuit TV, taking exams at nearby colleges.

Teachers now are paid by a set Gardner Kissack, Arthur Martin John Fragale salary schedule, instead of getting bonuses and raises f o r outstanding work. But teachers never can expect the pay scale of industries' brain men. Public f u n d s jus t can't match industries' profit and loss system for immediate, high-paying results.

Anchor Policy believe that a college newspaper should be three things: an objective reporter of the news, a stimulator of student thought, and a means for the expression of student and faculty opinion on controversial subjects. To the latter end, we invite letters to the editor, which we will print if the letter does not violate good taste and if space permits. Needless to say, the thoughts expressed in such letters can reflect only the views of the author, and cannot be supposed to be representative of the opinions of either the staff of the Anchor or the student body as a whole. Signed editorials may be considered expressions of staff opinion, and we invite disagreement with them. We are not trying to force our opinions on anyone. As we see it, our one editorial mission is to cause our readers to think about what we say.

Academic Integrity

The term "dedicated men" applied to the research scientist, the struggling artist or writer with a vision to give to other men's minds, can well be applied to teachers too. The very existence of a public school system, when almost any outside occupation demanding college training can name a higher salary, is a tribute to the unparaded devotion of the nation's teachers. But teachers attracted to the field cannot continue to live on dedication and devotion alone. Prestige and pride in one's work are powerful aids to vocational happiness — but will not mend a threadbare or slim pocketbook; not if the pocketbook is TOO slim or TOO threadbare. The modern trend to compete f o r good teachers is the solution. We hope it is just a s t a r t . —Reprinted from the Eastern Echo


It would seem t h a t in certain aspects of our college life we are failing to approach the standards which we have set f o r ourselves as students of a Christian college. Supposeably, it would go without saying t h a t the students of a college such as Hope would prize personal integrity more than any other one thing. However, this does not seem to be the case at Hope. In observing the conduct of some of Hope's students during tests and examinations one would sometimes think t h a t personal honor was a non-existant entity. Before we go f u r t h e r , let us say t h a t we don't mean to intimate t h a t all, or even a majority of Hope students are dishonest. However, those who do fail to uphold both the standards of a Christian institution, and even more important, the standards of personal integrity, are creating a harmful atmosphere for the whole student body. There are many forms and means of cribbing, from flagrantly copying f r o m a text book to slyly reading the notes one has prepared on his shirt sleeve. There are also as many a r g u m e n t s which students use in defense of their actions as there are methods of cribbing. These run from the oft-repeated, "Well, everybody does it and I have to too in order to keep up and get a mark," to the, "I really know the material, and I don't think it is wrong if I just have some way to remind myself." Needless to say, none of these so called justifications will hold any water when taken in the context of the Christian ethic under which we profess to live. Tragically, the oft-repeated adage is only too t r u e : "One cheats only himself when he cheats." However, the truth of this is either not recognized, or, more distasterous still, it is recognized and is still unheeded. Unfortunately, there is only one way in which this difficulty may be overcome, and that is through a realignment of values in the student himself. For the professor to assume a more stringent "this is a watchbird watching you" attitude will only make it more difficult, and we might add more challenging, to get away with anything and will not cause the basic change in the attitude of the offending parties which is the desired objective. Perhaps the most feaseable solution would be the inaugeration of an honor code which would make it mandatory f o r a student to report any of his fellows who are engaged in dishonest activities during an exam. This solution, of course must meet many obstacles, paramont among which would be one person's unwillingness to " r a t " on a friend or fellow student. This solution, also, runs the risk of not hitting at the basic problem of a change in attitude in the offending parties; but it might be a step in the right direction, f o r it would make a person who is tempted to crib begin to weigh the vain and transitory reward of an appearance of success against the loss of respect which would come as the logical consequence of his exposure before his friends and fellow students.

Letters To The Editor Dear Mr. Editor: As chairman f o r the UNESCO conference which met on our campus last week I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to you f o r the excellent and generous publicity the Anchor gave to our program. You may rest assured t h a t the delegates were delighted by the cordial greetings the Anchor staff extended to them. At the same time I would also like to say how much we all appreciated the very excellent services rendered by members of the Student Council who acted as campus guides, by members of the Blue Key, who served as ushers f o r the Hawkinson Lecture, and by the many other students who willingly gave of their time to contribute to the success of the conference. Perhaps these thanks are not necessary f o r I think t h a t our campus life was considerably enriched during the two days of the conference. Thus, in a way, our hospitality carried its own reward. Still, I think you and your readers might appreciate an exerpt f r o m a letter one of our recent visitors sent me: "My visit to Hope College and the opportunity to meet some of your fine students have confirmed me in my long-held belief t h a t I would like my children to attend a small private college like Hope when they grow up". Sincerely yours, Paul G. Fried Chairman, Hawkinson Committee

Japan In these days, it is getting cold

Droodle — "Alcor Time" Hundreds of greedy Hope College students anxiously await for Wednesday nite — the loveliest night of the week.

Students try

to study, but hunger pains get so severe by 9:30 or 10:00 that they are worth nothing. However, every Wednesday night a group of women come to the f r a t e r n i t y houses and dorms to treat these bad cases of "hunger pains." Their motto is, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." Zero hour arrives! Buzzers begin to ring, and their sound is heard as it travels f r o m one room to the other. Then comes the familiar cry, "ALCOR TIME." The halls become a hub-bub; students race to the main floor. It's a regular fight f o r the special goodies, ending up with the "survival of the fittest." Those with the longest a r m s and the sharpest fingernails usually come out the victors.

It must be remembered t h a t an institution can be only a s strong as the people who are a p a r t of it.

"Classmanship," or How to Ruin A Prof — Oklahoma Daily writer Ed Turner has come up with a new way of college living which, in keeping with the times, he calls "classmanship." Briefly, he says, it means the knack of f r u s t r a t i n g a well-meaning professor to such an extent t h a t he will want to quit his chosen profession as an educator and go to work f o r a munitions factory. Here are some of his rules: " F i r s t of all: always be late to class. Upon entering NEVER look meek or apologetic f o r disturbing the class. Appear surprised t h a t this section was scheduled to meet at the time or even look hurt that they could go on without you. Many an accomplished classman has caused the professor to thumb quickly through his class bulletin to see if perhaps they should have met at 8:35 instead of 8:10. Disagree openly with the professor. An economics instructor says in his most profound and sonorous tones: "The theories of Adam Smith are the foundations of our modern system of economics." You say in an audible whisper: "But that's so passe" . . . . making him look as if he had an old pair of plus-fours and was shouting "23 skidoo" instead of delivering a lecture. Leavemanship is another effective gambit that will add sparkle to every class room. About 10 minutes before the class is over slam your book shut, zip up your notebook, tuck your pencil neatly in your pocked and begin tapping your foot spasmodically, whistling to yourself, if you are a poor whistler. At five minutes before the hour, scoot up on the edge of your seat, alternating your gaze between the wall clock and your watch, shouting "X minus five, X minus four, X minus three" . . . . right up until the end of the hour.

My roomie says that when I lean against a pole she can't see me. Isn't t h a t odd? Mom, the craziest thing happened this morning. All of a sudden one of the girls came and woke me up — saying t h a t we were going to practice f o r a fire drill. You know that funny little grain shoot at the side of Voorhees Hall. Well, there is a secret little entry on both second and third floors. A little man came and told us to sit on some waxed paper and to go down into that DARK grain shoot. I was scared to death, but finally — down I went. The shoot must not have had any grain, because I spiraled down, down, down, until my feet opened a little door, and I found myself sitting flat on the ground. One by one the other girls came down — and you've never heard such a bump, bump, bumping. The little man who supervised us said something about that being our fire escape. Gosh, I think I'd rather perish in the flames than climb into that thing. I would have sworn that I learned in high school that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. Well, some of the girls around here must not have heard the news! They walk around with big balls and chains about their necks, stating that they are the slave of so and so. Their master must be cruel too, 'cause they only can afford 1

Fish-eye view of the freshman pull team. Minnie the Freshman Fish was very anxious to see the Freshman pull-team in action. So, on the day of the pull, Minnie, in green pot and all, swam up the Black River to the site of the pull. But, much to her dismay, she could not see her beloved pull team, due to the green slime of the water. However, Minnie decided to stay in hopes that she might get a glimse of them. Sure enough! 17 minutes HEARTHSIDE — and 40 seconds after the pull — HANDCRAFTS started, Minnie got a "fisheye view" of the Freshman Pull team! HANDMADE GUTS This is what she saw . . . .

Hope's First Woman Graduate - Frances Otte —Passes at 96 (Note: The Anchor is indebted to the Reverend Paul E. Hinhamp, Registrar of the College, for the following article. It was written on behalf of the faculty and in commemoration of Mrs. Jon A. Otte, nee Frances Phelps. — E D ) . When Mrs. Jon A. Otte died on Oct. 22nd, 1956, at the age of 96, Hope College could not help but feel her passing keenly. For her life and the life of Hope College were very closely intertwined. It began with a series of "firsts" when she, at the age of three months, came to Holland as the daughter of the first President of Hope College, Dr. Philip Phelps. As a young girl she lived in Van Vleck Hall, the first building on Hope's campus. In 1878 she and Miss Gertrude Alcott became the first two coeds at Hope College. In 1882 she and Miss Alcott became the first women graduates of the institution. She imbibed the Hope College foreign missionary spirit and with her husband, who was a medical missionary, went to China and served there until his death. She lived for many years in Holland, Michigan, and never lost her interest in Hope College. She was a member of Hope Church, the first English-speaking church in Holland, founded by her father in 1862, at least partly to provide a place of worship f o r members of the faculty of the college who were not conversant with the Dutch language. Mrs. Otte's loyalty to Hope College seemed to grow with the years. Her memory was phenomenal and her interest in events never flagged. Her mind was active and clear to the end. Her spiritual life was strong and enabled her to withstand the shock of the loss of her husband and later of two daughters with wonderful Christian fortitude and equanimity. Her many friends will always remember her as a most distinguished alumna.

Increasing numbers of academic institutions are providing Salk vaccine f o r their students and young f a c u l t y members as p a r t of an over-all p r o g r a m aimed a t increasing immunization of t h e nation's most susceptible individuals. Many colleges have responded to this p r o g r a m by offering the vaccine to s t u d e n t s and f a c u l t y members f o r a nominal charge as p a r t of the health service of the institution. Although Hope College does not offer this vaccine on a collegesponsored basis, a vaccine p r o g r a m has been personally initiated by Dr. William Moerdyk a t the college Clinic. Dr. Moerdyk stresses the importance of s t a r t i n g t h e series of three shots a t this t i m e and urges all those who have not had their first shot or who a r e ready f o r their second or third to come in now f o r immediate innoculation so t h a t the full immunization of three shots of vaccine over an eight month period m a y be accomplished before the 1957 polio season.

It is too early at this writing to determine what the outcome of the present Middle E a s t crisis will be — whether Britian and France wil t u r n the canal over to the U N ; whether Nasser's government will be overthrown, thus making way for the eventual internationalization of the canal; or finally, whether the whole Arab world will flare into open hostility against Israel, thus leading to a general war in the Middle East. But this crisis has produced a situation which is momentous in its significance and bears some comment. The gradual s h i f t i n g of power from the Security Council to the General Assembly of the United Nations has been given much momentum by the current crisis. In the original conception of the UN the Security Council was delegated the primary powers and responsibilities f o r maintaining world peace. But the flagrant misuse of the veto power by the USSR made ineffectual much of the work of the Security Council and the UN as a whole. So it was that the needs of the m a j o r i t y of the meber nations were sacrificed to the special interests of the minority. Now the shifting in power f r o m the Security Council to the General Assembly has been aided by the crisis in this way: Because Israeli troops had penetrated deeply into the Sinai Peninsula, thus endangering the free passage of ships through the canal; and because Britian and France had used this as a pretext to begin a unilateral police action, overtly to protect the canal, the Security Council was called into emergency session on Wednesday, October 31. Ironically, the United States-spon-

Fraters, Cosmos Tie For Season Football Laurels

^ 0


Intramural Football came to a glorious close this week as the powerful F r a t e r s edged the Seminary 24 to 18 to gain a tie with the Cosmos in a g r e a t finish f o r 1st place. The Cosmos had already grabbed their share of the crown in handing the Emmies a 44 to 8 defeat, and all that was needed was a F r a t e r defeat and the adept Cosmo aggregation would have been in with sole possession of that coveted crown.

(ex-Hope varsity football s t a r ) and the passing of Bob Smith the Sem became one of the toughest teams in the circuit. By trouncing the Emmies 50 to 6, and by sneaking by the Knicks in an overtime ball game 26 to 20 the Seminarians forced the title race with the Cosmos and the F r a t e r s right down to the wire. Their ability to come from behind was shown again and again with only a stray pass going f o r naught in the F r a t e r game thus preventing them f r o m tying it up and causing the game to go into overtime. Even though the Sem did sort of end their season on a sour note, they have much to be proud of in their having a winning season.

But the F r a t e r s were not to be denied! A f t e r spotting the Seminary 6 points on a touchdown by Jim Van Hoven the Fraters, led by the passing of John Jeltes and the pass catching of Dave Spaan, "Tiger" Teusink, and Jim Remmelts, sprung back on the first play a f t e r the kickoff and a Jeltes A R K I E S : A f t e r showing the form during to Spaan pass connected f o r the the 1st half of the season t h a t T.

As Intramural Golf nears completion, the Knicks seem to be sitting at the top of the heap and holding down the driver's seat f r o m now on in. The KHN's, who have a 27-hole total team score of 405 on George Bitner's 127, A1 Timmer's 130, and Chuck Lindahl's 148, seem to have the inside track on the championship unless the Arkies and F r a t e r s can come up with a winning combination as they complete their matches. The Arkies have the strongest chance as they have a total team score of 263 with both Gord Hondorp (130) and John Van Dyke (133) leaving Bud Ortquist with the task of scoring below 142 to tie or beat the Knicks.

In Tennis Singles With a strong duo of singles players, the Independent singles tennis team composed of J i m Kamp and Jim Vande Poel swept to a smashing victory in the Intramural Tennis Tournament of 1956. By qualifing f o r the final round berths, only a playoff between the two Independents was necessary. To gain the finals Kamp defeated Dennis Camp of the Cosmos 7-5, 7-5 in a match t h a t saw the spirited Indie stage a g r e a t uphill battle in defeating the defending champion. In the other semi-final round Vande Poel defeated Ron Hughes of the Knicks 7-5, 6-0 to gain the other final berth and set the stage f o r the meeting of the powerful pair to decide the championship. When the day of decision arrived both Kamp and Vande Poel seemed confident and each looked forward with eager anticipation toward a victory and thus, the crown. Vande Poel, always a slow starter, allowed Kamp to jump off to a 1-0 set lead in losing t h e . 1st set 2-6. Then everything began to click f o r the calm and collected Vande Poel as he won the second set 6-3, and was leading in the final set 4-1 when the bottom fell out and Kamp rallied to tie the set up to 6-6. At t h a t point, darkness set in and both players decided to call it quits and wait until the next day. On the deciding day Vande Poel seemed to f o r g e t t h a t he was supposed to s t a r t slowly and lose the 1st and deciding set, and he swept to a smashing 6-1 final set victory. Thus, by a 2-6, 6-3, 6-6, 6-1 victory Vande Poel was crowned the new singles tennis champion of the Intramural Program. In doubles competition the Emmie duo of Lew Stegink and Ron Kuiper swept straight through all competition and in the final round defeated Lloyd Arnoldink and Lou Benes of the Seminary 6-3, 6-0. With this final victory in doubles competition the Emersonians took first place among the fraternities and established themselves as a definite t h r e a t in t h a t all important race for the All-Sports Trophy.

Dutch Down Britains In Grid Thriller As Goal Line Stand Saves Game Hope College's Dutchmen staved off the second half drive of the Albion Britons to capture a drama packed 18-13 gridiron victory. This was the type of game t h a t explains the development of ulcers in football coaches. The Dutchmen were constantly deep in their own territory early in the game. They could not get their offense to click and were kept on their heels by the punting of Albion's Bob McConkie. However, with approximately three minutes to go in the first quarter Jack Faber entered the ball game and proceeded to connect with Mert VanderLind for a touchdown. Mert grabbed Faber's pass on the Albion 28 yard line and raced into the end zone on a play which covered 56 yards. Pete Watt's extra point attempt was wide and Hope had a 6-0 lead. With approximately two minutes left in the first half the Dutch started another drive. Dave Kuyers smashed through the center of the Albion line and raced 37 yards to the Albion 31 yard line. On the ensueing play Paul Wiegerink got behind the Albion safety man, who interfered when Paul tried to take the forward pass. Thus the Dutch were given possession of the ball on the Albion two yard line. From that point Mert VanderLind drove in f o r his second touchdown. When Pete Watt's conversion attempt was blocked the halftime score stood at 12-0 in favor of the Dutch. Albion came back strong in the second half. A f t e r the kickoff the Dutch could not move the ball and were forced to punt. However, a Briton lineman broke through and blocked Mert VanderLind's kick and the Briton's took over on the Hope 20 yard line. A f t e r three downs the Britons had been forced back to the 35 yard line. From that point Bob Gamble completed a desperation fourth down pass pitched to end Tom Taylor for a touchdown. Gene Bohn made good on his conversion attempt and the Britons trailed 12-7. Early in the final quarter halfback Bob Van Gilder intercepted a Jack Faber aerial on the Hope 40 yard line and returned it all the way to the Hope seven yard line. Three plays later Jim Hurd drove across for the touchdown from the two yard line. Gene Bohn's extra point try was not good and Albion had a 13-12 lead. Pete W a t t returned the kickoff thirty yards to the Hope 35 yard line. The steamed up Britons held the Dutch to little gain on two off-tackle smashes. On third down Pete Watt scooted down the sideline and grabbed a 20-yard pass from Del Grissen on the Albion 40 yard line. Pete took the pass ver his shoulder and didn't seem to break his stride as he scooted across for the score. Watt's extra point attempt was blocked and Hope had an 18-13 lead with about nine minutes left in the game. Albion took the kickoff but could not move the ball and had to punt. The Dutch offense also stalled and they had to go into punt formation. Briton end Lin Reed broke through to block Mert VanderLind's punt and Albion took over on the Hope 35 yard line. This was the, sixth Hope punt that had been blocked this season. The Hope defense dug in and held the Briton's for four plays. The Dutch took over but they did not retain control of the ball f o r long as Pete W a t t fumbled and Albion's John Leppi recovered on the Hope 37 yard line. • It took the Briton's only six plays to march to the Hope eight yard line with about one minute

Scots Invade For Final Tilt With Pony Backs, Tough Line This Saturday afternoon, the Hope College gridders will be battling the Scots from Alma College in the Annual Mom and Dad's Day Game. Alma has a 3-5 record as they enter this final game, and the Scots were tied for third place in the conference last year until the Dutchmen upset them 34-14 in the 1955 closer. There will be plenty of incentive for a "revenge" victory, but the men of Hope haven't forgotten 1953, when a surprise upset by the Scots ruined an otherwise perfect season for the Dutch.

Gridders Rock Olivet Comets 59-6 As Everyone Plays


Hope College's gridiron giants completely routed Olivet by a onesided 59-6 score. Running almost at will the Dutchmen ran up a season's high of 520 yards rushing. Only four passes were attempted, all of which were completed, but three were good for touchdowns. The combined total yardage reached 613 yards.

These men w i l l be p l a y i n g their last game for Hope College after four years of f o o t b a l l with the Dutch. They are, left to r i g h t : Center Earl De W i t t , Fullback Dave Kuyers, Quarterback Harry Voss, and G u a r d Tom Harris. Our hats are off to these men for an outstanding job well done for Hope College. — P h o t o by John DeVries

The Hope College gridmen must have been wearing track shoes October 27, as they literally ran all over the Comets from Olivet, 59-6. Every man who was able saw action, and Olivet was held scoreless a f t e r the second quarter. Hope rolled off four TD's in the first eight minutes of the third quarter to put the icing on the cake. Scoring was spread evenly: Ron Weatherbee and Jim Menzer scored two touchdowns apiece, while Mert Vanderlind, Paul Wiegerink, Pete Watt, Dave Kuyers, and J e r r y Hendrickson each had one. W a t t accounted f o r three conversions, Hendrickson one, and Dyke Rottschafer one. The Dutchmen amassed a mammoth total of 613 yards gained, 520 on the ground, and 93 through the air. The biggest ground gainers were Jim Menzer 130 yards, Mert Vanderlind 98, and Pete W a t t 77. Back of the week . . . Jim Menzer, who accounted for two Hope TD's and picked up 130 yards rushing, including a 66-yard scoring dash. Lineman of the week . . . Jim De Witt, a substitute tackle who saw considerable action for the first time this year. He played his position well, being in on almost every tackle while he was playing over half the game. * * * Hope brought its league mark this season to 3 wins and 2 losses, visiting Albion and coming home the victors, 18-13. Mert Vanderlind tallied twice and Pete Watt once, for all the Dutch scoring. Dave Kuyers led the team in rushing, with 89 yards in 12 tries. Albion

staged a desparate comeback in the last few minutes, but the Hope defensive unit held f a s t to preserve the win. Back of the week . . . Pete Watt, a halfback who stood out as both a runner and a pass receiver. He scored once against the foe. Lineman of the week . . . Dick Gantos, who played almost the entire game and whose persistent tackling help dump the Britons. Dick is in his second year as a starting guard and linebacker. * * * Dave Kuyers and Mert Vanderlind are continuing to pick up lots of yardage this season, and as a result, both men are among the top four ground-gainers in the conference. Ever since the start of MIAA play, Mert and Dave along with Nate Clark from Hillsdale and Albion's Jim Hurd have been pacing the league in t h a t department. Not including the action this past weekend, Clark ranked first, Vanderlind second, Hurd Third, and Kuyers fourth, and these four have changed position several times. But against Albion, Kuyers gained 89 to Vanderlind's 38, putting Kuyers ahead 349 to 338. Hurd dropped to fourth with 330. Only Clark was unheard from when this issue went to press. Vanderlind and Clark are halfbacks while the other two are fullbacks. * * *
