The Trapp Family singers, pictured above in their native autumn dress, w i l l present a concert in the Hope Chapel Tuesday, November 24 at 8 : 1 5 P.M.

Trapp Family To Sing Before Local Audience Recognized nationally as being a spirited singing group, the T r a p p family will present a concert in the chapel Tuesday, November 24, at 8:15 P.M. Since their arrival in this country in 1938, the singing T r a p p s have earned the distinction of being the most heavily booked single attraction in the concert history of the United States. The Baroness Trapp and her seven d a u g h t e r s fled f r o m their native A u s t r i a only a little over a decade ago, and they established their new home in Vermont because it reminded them of Salzburg. The T r a p p s have made more than 1,200 personal appearances, and they average 100 concerts a season. Until last year, they had not appeared outside of the United States in over ten years. They gave 61 concerts in Central and South America, and took a f o u r month t o u r of ten European countries, of which the high spot was their r e t u r n to Salzburg. A p p e a r i n g at all times, both off and on the stage, in their picturesque native dress, the singing of the T r a p p s ranges f r o m motets and m a d r i g a l s to mountain yodels and folk songs. Now operating a summer music camp, the T r a p p s encourage the attendance of whole families in an effort f o r f a m i l y participation in religious and social activities.

Mrs. T r a p p ' s more recent best-seller, Today, Tomorrow, and Forever, deals intimately with the family's religious life. In addition to their numerous other activities, the f o r m e r Baroness and her children operate their own one-family philanthropic association, known as the Trapp Family Austrian Relief, Inc., and it had been responsible f o r the collection and shipment of 3 0 0 , 0 0 0 pounds of food, clothing, and medicine.

Voice of The Campus

To The Editor; This year's ANCHOR has f e a tured a sports column entitled "Enough Rope." J u d g i n g by the discourses found therein, the supposedly intrepid correspondent has certainly entwined enough of said rope in the area between his head and shoulders. By his survey and appraisal of the World Series and the National League batting race, he has added his name to the list of already extant experts as A r t h u r Daley, Bill Corum, W a r r e n Brown, and Red Smith. Yet it still remains to be seen whether our columnist is sufficiently informed to

cope with such proficient personalities. Personally, Pd r a t h e r read Daley, Brown, Corum, or Smith. It might very well prove propitious if our sports columnist would confine his dissertations to Hope College athletics. A f t e r all, it is entirely in the realm of possibility t h a t a goodly segment of the student body would r a t h e r read some interesting sidelights or inside information about campus sports than brief recapitulations of the views of Daly, Brown, Corum, and Smith.

GASPEER SLAPS ISRAELITES Unchaste politics b e g a t the political machine, and t h a t b eg at the infamous Truman, and the infamous T r u m a n b e g a t the unholy s t a t e of Israel. So, if we have to d r a w a conclusion, we would s a y t h a t Israel and its by-products—constant strife and annihilation, a r e the illegitimate results of T r u m a n ' s base ambitions, and his i m m a t u r e political decisions, and the s t r e n g t h and weight of the Jewish votes in the U.S. It is often said t h a t T r u m a n would prostitute his own m o t h e r if it meant a f e w more votes f o r him. Israel m e a n t a f e w million Jewish votes, and so he sold his conscience and the integrity of his country a t the a l t a r of the White House. T h a t "bulwark of Democracy," as Israel is often r e f e r r e d to in this country, is nothing but a bulwark of aggression and inhumanity, selfishness and barbaric and unchristian ethics. The latest o u t b r e a k s of hostilities undertaken by Israel a g a i n s t her A r a b neighbors have added another chapter to the book of Israelish unholiness and inhumanity. They still follow in the traditions of t h e i r history-old motto, " E n t e r unto those cities and kill everybody t h a t b r e a t h e t h . " Well, they did. They killed sixty-six women and children and invalid and aged men.

A real peace can be established between Israel and h e r neighbors only if the U.S. would discipline this impudence by measures such as the one t h a t Foster Dulles has recently taken when he suspended economic aid to Israel till she stopped violating a U.N. decision.

F o r the past five weeks the f r a t s ' main interests and duties have centered around rushing. Each of the societies were able to hold five meetings which are in the f o r m of hay rides, smokers, litera r y meetings, square-dances, and banquets thus giving the new men an opportunity of visiting e a c h f r a t if he wished to do so. Following the close of the rushing season the f r a t e r n i t y bids f o r new members. Each bid is sent out in the form of a f o r m a l invitation and each rushee has a week known as "silent period" to consider his bid. During this time no f r a t e r n i t y is allowed to influence his judgment. W h e n the rushee has decided which f r a t e r n i t y he would like to join, he sends a f o r mal written acceptance and also a f o r m a l written l e t t e r to the f r a ternity or f r a t e r n i t i e s in which he declines a bid. A f t e r this the rushee is known as a "pledge" and it is only a m a t t e r of time before he is formally initiated into the fraternity. The F r a t e r s , Cosmos, and Arcadians will conclude the rushing season with l i t e r a r y meetings.

This will be the second concert in the Grand Rapids Symphony concert series. Moiseiwitsch, a child prodigy, began his musical studies at the Imperial Academy of Music in Odessa, Russia. Here, a t the age of nine he won the coveted Rubinstein prize, breaking all records in musical progress at the academy. When he was fifteen he went to Vienna to study under Leschetizky, also Paderewski's teacher, and in 1908 made his London debut. His first appearance in this count r y was made in 1919 a t Carnegie Hall. L a t e r he appeared with all the m a j o r orchestras in the count r y including San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, New York Philharmonic and many others. Rachmaninoff, the f a m o u s composer, g r e a t l y admired Moiseiwitsch f o r his keyboard technique. Following one of Moiseiwitsch's concerts in which he played Rachmaninoff's Prelude in B Minor, the composer hurried back s t a g e to congratulate the pianist on his brilliant reading of the work. F o r his concert in Grand Rapids he will play another work by Rachmaninoff, Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini. Other works on the p r o g r a m will be Beethoven's Leonore Overture No. 3 and Franck's Symphony in D Minor. According to Mrs. E. S.

Indicate Hopeites Friendly, Cordial In one of his recent Sociology classes. Dr. J . Dyke Van Putten asked students to fill in a sheet which concerned marrying or having acquaintance with peoples of various races. He divided the paper into races and situations asking the students to fill in whether or not they would be willing to marry, have as best friends, roommates, or visitors to their country these people of different nationalities. Most interesting were the situations involving m a r r i a g e and willingness to have brother or sister m a r r y the people of the Caucasion and Negroid groups. In a class of forty-seven, two would m a r r y Koreans and Hindus, but f o u r were willing to have their brothers and sisters m a r r y them!

In general the class was in favor of friendship and cordiality towards these races but f e w were willing to inter-marry.

Say Campus Overdating Due To Unreliable Info by Robert Muilenburg Following a red sweater around campus yesterday, I blundered onto what I believe to be a discovery of the g r e a t e s t importance. The sweater, which had blue eyes above, was playing it cool. It led me a merry chase through the basement of the chapel, until I finally cornered it in the library. Then, while I wallowed in "History F r o m The Neanderthal Man To Eleanor Roosevelt", I carelessly glanced through a nearby magazine, still keeping my quarry in sight. Not being too f a m i l i a r with printed m a t t e r outside of the lost and found notices on the bulletin board, I was surprised to find myself f o r g e t t i n g about the r e d sweater, with each revealing word. In f a c t I altogether abandoned it to a f r e s h m a n reading the biography of Sigmund Freud's niece. And I wasn't a bit sorry later. Usually I am a very modest fellow, but I can't help p a t t i n g myself on the back this time. For you see I have discovered the whole problem to overdating on Hope's campus. During t h a t f a t e f u l hour as I read and re-read double checking on my discovery, I pictured a smiling Dean of Men presenting me with the coveted Congressional Medal of Campus Spies f o r outstanding service detrimental to dating. The article t h a t had so intrigued me was a condensation called, "More Dates Mean Better M a r k s " by A. Fountaine in the May 1950 issue of Reader's Digest. In its brief content lay the root to the nemesis t h a t had invaded our vinechoked buildings two years past. Allow me to reconstruct. The school year 1951 began as usual as possible with the exception of the f r e s h m a n women. They refused to cooperate and insisted on ignoring everything except a certain magazine, which all of them carried clutched tightly in their sweaty hands. As a result a heavy a u r a of tension pervaded t h e usually boring classes until things finally broke the night of September 29, 1951. A t 6:30—everything normal; a t 7:30—kaput. T h e women went wild, phoning the dorms and f r a t e r n i t y houses in search of dates, not caring about a n y t h i n g but a man.



Sororities Busy Planning Parties The members of Hope's sororities have been busy this week making plans f o r date nights and winter f o r m a l and informal parties. S t a r t ing tonight and continuing f o r a month or more the sororities will be having their parties. Sorosites are having t h e i r winter informal party in the basement of the Woman's Literary Club tonight. Wilma Beets and Penny Ramaker are co-chairmen of the party which will be centered around a pirate theme. Sorosites were entertained by their pledges last Friday night at their literary meeting. Indian summ e r was the theme of this meeting. On December 4, the new Sorosis pledges will go through their f o r m a l initiation. The J u n i o r members of the Thesaurian sorority led their literary meeting last Friday night with a Fall theme. Theta pledges will officially become members of the sorority at their formal initiation tonight. Theta members are making plans f o r their date night December 5, which will be a square dance and either a hayride or s l e i g h ride, depending on the weather. Janice Conklin is chairman of this p a r t y . The members of A.S.A. have organized a few new committees in order to have an effective and successful p r o g r a m this year. J a n R o t t s c h a f e r and Ruth Mary Noordyk a r e co-chairmen of the membership committee and Mary Ann Vollink is chairman of the prog r a m committee.

WELL, T H A T S N E W YORK Bruce Wormald, a Columbia University student, has been having car trouble—for more t h a n two y e a r s now. It began back in 1951, when the engine of his 1936 model automobile conked out n e a r New York City's W e l f a r e Island. Unable to g e t the car s t a r t e d again, Wormald pushed it into a secluded corner and l e f t it parked. This month he received a warning letter f r o m W e l f a r e Island officials. They wanted him to retrieve his deserted car. So he and a friend went back to the Island and, failing to get the motor running, they pushed the vehicle off a 24-foot cliff and into the ocean. An alert doctor saw the car being dumped, though, and notified the police. Now the two students a r e charged with "dumping r e f u s e " into New York City w a t e r s in violation of the S a n i t a r y Code," and the police are g r a p p l i n g f o r Wormald's white elephant.

Cage Sessions

The first week of practice wa.i devoted chiefly to loosening up exercises. In t h e afternoons, Visser supervised the r e t u r n i n g lettermen and the more experienced f r e s h men in sessions intended to give the players the feel of the ball and a review of Hope plays. A f t e r supper Visser and Assistant Coach L a r r y Green held sessions f o r f r e s h m e n only. Scrimmages were held the l a t t e r p a r t of the week when the first cuts were made. This year Hope will have only one squad composed of twenty men. The more inexperienced reserves on the team will play the preliminary g a m e s but there will be no split of the teams as before. Hope has an eighteen g a m e schedule this year. Besides f o u r teen conference games, the Dutch will open with Wabash on November 28 at home, play two games with Michigan Normal and a single encounter at Beloit on J a n u a r y 15. Normal and Beloit are newcomers to the Dutch schedule.

Adams Runs Wild In Albion Victory Rocking the undermanned Albion Britons with a stunning first quarter offensive and holding them off with the aid of Briton miscues on second half goal line stands, the Hope college gridiron squad ran off to a 20-7 decision on the Albion playing field in the contest billed as the battle f o r the MIAA title this year. Hope halfback F r a n k Talarico, whose f e a t of seven touchdowns in his two previous g a m e s had given him the s t a t e scoring lead, was closely guarded and as a result held to no score and 75 yards in 12 running a t t e m p t s . But the Albion defense was foiled by the other Dutch halfback, John Adams, who went over f o r all three Hope counters and ripped off gains totaling 146 y a r d s in 10 tries.

F r i b e r g Ineffective The Albion attack suffered f r o m the loss of quarterback Bob Friberg, whose ankle i n j u r y kept him on the bench most of the game and hampered his effectiveness when he was in the action. In addition, regular end-halfback Addison Brink saw little service, also because of an ailment. The Dutch bounced into an early lead with the help of an interception deep in Briton territory. Fading back the Albion tosser was hit by the Dutch line as the ball left his hand, with J o h n Brannock grabbing t h e pigskin f o r the interception. Adams turned it into a tally f r o m eight y a r d s out. L a t e r in the same q u a r t e r Adams swept l e f t end f r o m his own 47 and with the aid of a path-clearing block by g u a r d Don VanderToll ambled down the sidelines to go the whole distance. Bud Prins' boot gave the Dutch a 13-point advantage.

own second and t h i r d - s t r i n g e r s at the time, the Britons scored on a pass f r o m Tom Schwaderer to Norm Weis. A big percentage of the total y a r d a g e gained by Albion during the afternoon was accounted f o r in these last minutes, enough to enable them to outgain the Dutch in a misleading statistic. Adams' p e r f o r m a n c e brought his season total f o r seven g a m e s to '503 yards rushing in 56 tries, f o r an average of 8.9 yards per. Talarico has now gained 362 yards in 72 rushing a t t e m p t s , f o r an average gain of 5.0 yards. Fullback Dave Kempker, to whom an earlygame i n j u r y necessitated his absence f r o m all but a little of the play, has accumulated 329 yards on 64 carries f o r a 5.1 average.

missed on some more scoring opportunities, the Britons roared back like a different squad to dominate the second half. The Albion gridders banged a w a y at the goal line three times, failing each time as the Dutch defense held. Twice touchdowns were scored but nullified by infractions on the p a r t of the over-eager Britons, and yardage lost on the penalties gave the Dutchmen another chance to stymie t h e t h r e a t . Adams Scores Again A last q u a r t e r touchdown, on a 34-yard sprint by Adams, put the contest out of reach of the defending champion Albion, who finally banged out a tally of their own in the last minute against a squadful of Hope reserves. Fielding t h e i r



It's about time to give the i n t r a m u r a l s p o r t p r o g r am a cold look in the eye and then s t a r t raising some questions about it. T h e program grew originally out of a desire on the p a r t of individuals to e n g a g e in those s p o r t s which required the participation of a group—softball and basketball, for instance—and which hence demanded some degree of organization. Recent tendencies, however, have acted to obscure this motive so that at the present time, it would appear, it has been lost sight of completely in the welter of an overloaded program. The purpose of providing recreation is now apparently being overlooked, an overstressing of the competitive aspect, through the channels of the fraternities, taking its place. The all-sports trophy has assumed disproportionate prominence until it now seems that the complications involved in figuring out the all-sports standings are a criterion of the intra-mural p r o g r a m ' s success. There is really little need f o r the inclusion under the intra-mural setup of sports not requiring a large number of participants—sports, f o r instance, like golf and table tennis. The m a n who likes to play golf can and will, with or without an i n t e r - f r a t e r n i t y p r o g r a m ; but the man who is no g r e a t addict of the sport but who feels compelled to play j u s t so his f r a t e r n i t y h a s a representative, is being deprived of his time. Even one of the group sports—volleyball—has caused a reaction among the i n t r a m u r a l m a n a g e r s of ."let's get it over with as soon as possible." When participation becomes a chore, the purposes of the p r o g r am have been defeated. *





The Albion incident of last week points out quite graphically the h a z a r d s of being a public figure. It was a personal affair. The actual incident and t h e real motivations underlying it a r e known only to the principals involved, and to very f e w others. Yet the public g r a b s a t it, claims it as its duty to i n t e r p r e t it, and distorts it. No doubt t h e figure of controversy in such a situation m i g h t well ask with a touch of bitterness—is i t anybody else's business? *
