Dr. O'Neill to Lead Week o£ Religious Activity Nykerk "Battle" Tomorrow Night by Carol Luth The twenty-second annual Nykerk Cup Contest will be held November 15 at 8 o'clock in the Civic Center. Up until 1936, the counterpart to the pull was a touch football battle between the Sophomore and Freshman girls. In 1986, however. Dr. J. B. Nykerk, head of the speech department proposed a new and more feminine competition consisting of three events — a dramtic production, a musical number and an oration. Since that time Nykerk Cup has become a tradition for the entire college which is met with anticipation and enthusiasm each year. The cup itself would have many stories to tell if it could speak. Tales of dramtic ad-libs, victory parties at Fricano's, and the loving affection of the winning class. It may have its battle scars, but the Nykerk Cup still reigns supreme! May the best class win!

Fried to Attend Nat'l Conference Dr. Paul Fried, Professor of History, as one of five delegates from the Reformed Church in America, will attend the Fifth World Order Study Conference in Cleveland November 18-21. He is also scheduled to participate November 17 as a guest consultant in the Eighth Annual Assembly of the Division. The theme for this National Conference on the Churches and International Affairs is CHRISTIAN RESPONSIBILITY ON A CHANGING PLANET. Six preparatory study commissions have prepared reports on subjects of theological and moral considerations, the power struggle and security in a Nuclear-Space Age, overseas areas of rapid social change. International institutions and peaceful change, and international relation. The 1958 meeting will convene in Cleveland. Periodically since 1941 representatives of the member churches have met in national study conferences such as this to consider work in international affairs. Speakers to the conference include John Foster Dulles, Secretary of State; Thomas Finletter, former Secretary of the Air Force; and Dr. Ralph W. Sockman of the Christ Methodist Church in New York City. In appointment of delegates, each denomination and church council was asked to recommend individuals who would take an active part a f t e r the Conference in the nation-wide program of education and action for peace. Plans f o r this envision the organization of state and local leadership training conferences and study programs in every local church. The National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. has called this national study conference to consider crucial questions of Christian faith and responsibility in this time of changing world relation. The Conference will speak not only f o r itself, but will present its findings to the General Board of the National Council of Churches for f u r t h e r consideration.

Four Debators Participate In Practice Tournament

Hope Receives Texaco Grant

Four members of the Hope College debate team attended a practice debate tournament Monday, November 10, at Calvin College. The debate proposition was: "Resolved: That the Further Development of Nuclear Weapons Should be Prohibited by International Agreement." Paul Lydens, a junior from Sandusky, Ohio, and Dennis Hengeveld, junior from Grandville, debated the affirmative. Richard Hertel and Larry Dykstra, both Holland juniors, debated the negative. Teams from Calvin, Alma College, and Bowling Green State University in Ohio participated in the tournament. The first debate was held at 4:30 and the second at 7:30 in the Seminary Building on the Calvin campus. All participants had dinner in the Commons between rounds. The debates were non-decision— however, a f t e r each debate the judges presented a brief oral critique. Coaches of the four schools served as judges. This is the first year of intercollegiate debate f o r Lydens and Hengeveld; Hertel and Dykstra were members of Calvin's debate team prior to their t r a n s f e r to Hope this fall. The debate coach f o r Hope College is Mr. Robert Smith, who recently joined the faculty at Hope as Instructor of Speech.

The group, when organized, will become a sub-group of P. and M. The members of t h e repertoire g r o u p must be members of P. and M. in order to t r y out f o r membership in the new group. The number in the group will depend on the number of members in P. and M. This group will be only a small percentage of P. and M. members so as not to sap the s t r e n g t h of the parent organization. According to present plans, f r o m twelve to eighteen members will be chosen a t try-outs which were held this week. Plays will then be selected f o r scheduled performances. An evaluation will be held a t the end of the year to ascertain the value and effectiveness of the group.

Miss Jean Protheroe "I j u s t thoroughly love Hope College!" exclaimed Miss J e a n Protheroe, a s s i s t a n t professor of English at Hope College when interviewed recently.


"It takes a long time before one can really feel a p a r t of any unit," she continued, "but the other faculty members have made a real effort to help me fit in and I enjoy the students very much." Explaining t h a t she hasn't consciously evaluated the college, Miss Protheroe indicated that she was very impressed by the high caliber of work and the drive f o r excellence in all t h i n g s a t Hope College. "The responsiveness of my students and their mastery of the basic f u n d a m e n t a l s make my work very challenging," she added. Miss Protheroe expressed appreciation of the quality of work done by the music and dramatic d e p a r t m e n t as well as the efforts of the football team. "I am j u s t completely impressed by the Anchor," she also remarked, "and while I have had no journalistic experience or training, I can appreciate the hours of real effort t h a t must go into it." Miss Protheroe likes the quiet, small-town way of life Holland offers and feels life in a large city would offer too m a n y " t e m p t a t i o n s " in the f o r m of plays and other cultural activities. "I am intrigued with the dunes and beaches of Lake Michigan and the beautiful fall w e a t h e r here," she interjected, "and I think t h a t the Lubber's beautiful home is one of the most outstanding in the community." Summing up her feeling about Hope College, she repeated, "I still feel very new but I can sense Hope's high standards and I am glad to feel a p a r t of this institution. During the entire time a have been here, my experiences have all been pleasant and my days full."

Other Forms of Student Help Replacing Scholarships College student assistance prog r a m s are in use t h r o u g h o u t the country, and will become more popular and valuable as enrollments increase according to f a c t s released to Hope by Dr. W. W. Hill, director of Division of Educational Research and Services of the College Life Insurance Company of America. Many of these p r o g r a m s a r e closely allied with those existing a t Hope. One percent of t h e nation's colleges and universities account f o r fifty percent of all the loans made to students by institutions of higher education. H a r v a r d led in the amount loaned in the school year with $825,000. The University of Michigan, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Denver followed in t h a t order. The largest n u m b e r of loans, 3,621, was m a d e by Michigan State. The University of Texas and University of Florida were next high. At California Polytechnic College loans were made to 42% of the students and a t t h e University of Oregon to 38%. Highest a v e r a g e loan w a s $612 a t M.I.T.

i A New Organ — For the Music Department, Not the Pre-Meds

by J a m e s Michmerhuizen Most of Professor Rietberg's organ students, I am sure, experienced a certain vindictive pleasure upon finding this semester t h a t the night-marish old Wurlitzer practice organ was gone. Formerly residing in the tower of the chapel, it was moved to the music building upon the completion of t h a t worthy edifice, and stayed there f o r two years to plague organ students with its bargain-basement-accordion tone. Its place has been taken by a small pipe organ which was installed this s u m m e r ; an organ which was built by the Kilgen organ company with only three r a n k s of pipes. Pipe organ companies began building small unified organs about twenty or thirty years ago to compete with the much cheaper electronics. The subject of this article, f o r instance, has short cuts all over — the sixteen foot pedal stop is synthesized f r o m an eight-foot pitch and a soft vox humana quint. (I do regret that there is not space to explain this terminology to those of you who are not organ or physics students. Surely you have a friend among one or both of those g r o u p s ? ) Then there is also an oboe which is synthetic — the rest of the stops are simply obtained f r o m the basic three r a n k s available a t various pitches. There is also a tremolo, which unfortunately does not confine itself to merely vibrating the notes being played. It affects the keys and even the organist — occasionally. No wonder organ playing is supposed to be so relaxing. Personally, I'd as soon go home and sit in m y electronic superduper jet-propelled nuclear fission model vibrator chair. I think I will.

tional method of student help. Scholarships, however, remain the present chief source of f u n d s f o r students and the figures suggest t h a t they will remain so for a long time to come. At the University of Chicago, the number of scholarships awarded was equal to 45% of the underg r a d u a t e enrollment. F i f t y - two percent of the g r a d u a t e students a t this school were receiving fellowships. P a r t time employment is another m a j o r means of student assistance. Ohio State alone paid out more t h a n $3,700,000 f o r all types of student services. Many Hope students are employed in this manner.

The International Association f o r the Exchange of Students f o r Technical Experience ( I A E S T E ) h a s been one of innumerable organizations founded since World W a r II with a p r o g r a m with the objective of increased international understanding. The field of cooperation here is science and technology in the realm of education. American students have been taking part in this p r o g r a m since 1955 through the Institute of International Education, which serves as the secretariat f o r I A E S T E in the United States. I A E S T E was founded in 1948 as a non-profit organization by universities and industries of nine Western European countries. Today, over 2,000 industries in the 24 member countries of I A E S T E are providing training f o r nearly 6,000 visiting students f r o m other member countries. W h a t I A E S T E does is give help to g r a d u a t e students who will continue their studies in science, engineering, architecture, and allied fields. This is accomplished by obtaining summertime on-the-job training f o r them with an industrial company in a foreign country. In the summer of 1957 a total of 5,934 students t h r o u g h o u t the world engaged in this exchange program, which is an increase of almost six-and-a-half times the number of students who participated in 1948. This expansion of the program may be indicative of t h e benefits to be derived f r o m it, both on the p a r t of the student and on t h e p a r t of industry in general. In fact, the companies t h a t participate find this p r o g r a m no hindrance to them a t all, but r a t h e r the exchange students are known to do their jobs well, and they give the younger technical personnel of. the home plant a chance to exchange ideas with persons having a different training background. The countries where the participating companies are located include most of t h e European nations, plus Canada, Ceylon, Iceland, India, Israel, the Union of South Africa, and the U n i t e d States. I t is a requirement to have a t least some knowledge of the language which is spoken where the student wishes to study. From the student's point of view there is much to be gained through the p r o g r a m t h a t I A E S T E offers. In a letter sent to Dr. Paul Fried by the Institute of International Education, the secretary of the U.S. I A E S T E Committee says, "This p a s t summer 84 American students went abroad to gain an insight into f o r e i g n industrial and scientific methods, and to obtain a knowledge and understanding of the cultural p a t t e r n s of other nations. The reports received f r o m the students who participated in the I A E S T E p r o g r a m t h i s year att e s t to the value of the p r o g r a m . " T h e student trainee will be acquiring theory and skill of technique, but there are also many advantages t h a t an alert person will not pass by. F o r example, if the student is going to live with a f o r eign f a m i l y f o r eight weeks, he will certainly learn much about the customs and morals of people in a cult u r e different f r o m his own. Students who have participated in the exchange p r o g r a m seem to place an emphasis on w h a t m a y be called the intangible benefits of such a n exchange. One student trainee.

placed in Germany, stressed the f a c t t h a t he gained valuable language experience as well as getting to know and b e t t e r understand a people of a different background. This same trainee also said, "I saw my country through the eyes of another people, and this not only made me appreciate w h a t it means to be a citizen of the United States, but also made me appreciate t h a t many of today's international problems are the result of ignorance and misunderstanding which can only be alleviated through education and extended contact between the peoples of different nations." Of course the prime purpose of the program—the valuable training being acquired to add to the potential engineer's or scientist's well-rounded background—must not be put out of sight. The actual exchange of students is only guided and directed by the I A E S T E . It is up to the individual student to pay his transportation and living expenses. The student may choose the country in which he wishes to work and I A E S T E will m a k e the necessary contacts with a company he can be placed in. The company where he is to work will pay a maintenance allowance which is sufficient to cover expenses while working. American industries and universities, however, have played only a minor role in the I A E S T E prog r a m compared to the active participation of the E u r o p e a n countries taking p a r t in t h e program. Last summer, when the U.S. was represented by 84 students, Great Britain was represented by 784 students, Sweden by 1,160, and Germany by 1,195 students. There is a g r e a t desire on the p a r t of students in o t h e r , m e m b e r ^ countries f o r training in the U.S., but since I A E S T E is a reciprocal exchange program, the number of students placed in industrial firms abroad depends upon the number of foreign trainees we can place in U.S. industry. The 84 American students who went abroad this past summer represented 60% of those who had applied. American industries, due to professional organizations which have urged an increased interest in the program, have now begun to participate more actively, so t h a t our country may soon play a p a r t comparable to the p a r t s played by Germany, Sweden, Great Britain, and other European nations. Students selected f o r this unique p r o g r a m must be highly qualified, both scholastically and characterwise. Applications will not be considered unless the prospective trainee is endorsed by a designated faculty member responsible f o r seeing to it t h a t only superior students participate in the exchange program. Hope College, in the summer of 1956, was represented by Dave Van Eenenaam and Larry Lup. Any Hope students interested in this international p r o g r a m f o r student exchange should speak with Dr. Fried as soon as possible. No applications will be accepted by I A E S T E a f t e r J a n u a r y 1, 1959. • *.• *.*

An Important Role For Nykerk


This year the pull and Nykerk Contest alone a r e gaining notice and acceptance f o r the f r e s h m a n and thus they take on added importance. Learning can be gained by individual study but an education is complete only by companionship with others in a similar position. A college provides the environment where t h e personality develops along with a spirit of unity through companionship. The r e t u r n s of two weeks invested in f r i e n d l y interclass competition I feel are well spent when they contribute to the development of personality. This is the purpose of the Nykerk Cup Contest or you may be sure t h e Student Council would not sponsor its annual revival. The contest is only a waste of time when the participants f o r g e t t h a t to g e t anything out of such ^n effort, a desire to contribute and a cooperative attitude must be given in return. —C.

Alpha-Phi Alpha Phi has received Christm a s news f r o m the J a p a n e s e orphan whom the sorority sponsors a s a service project. The m e m b e r s contribute a sum of money each month to the care of the little girl and in r e t u r n they receive letters f r o m her.

Now t h a t the r e t u r n s a r e all in and the victory champagne all gone (If not gone, very stale), let us go you and I (direct quotation f r o m Eliot's "The Love Song of J . Alfred P r u f r o c k " ) into the never never land of criticism and see if we can't help the politicians r u n t h e i r campaigns a little better. One of the t r a d e m a r k s of a good election day is t h a t the people m u s t be fed f a c t s all day long, no m a t t e r how inconsequential they m a y be. This serves to create an a t m o s p h e r e of nervous tension and helps immensely in fooling the people into thinking t h a t by just pulling a lever they are electing somebody into office. But I will ask the radio announcers to tone down the dull reading of election r e t u r n s in W a r d s 6 and 7, just a bit. One need not, it seems to me, present these figures as though one were reading an account of the battle of Gettysburg. Maybe it is exciting, but I can't quite share the pulsating feeling of d r a m a of which the announcers speak. Perh a p s I am out of tune with modern life and, perhaps too, it is merely the fact t h a t it is not exciting, no m a t t e r w h a t tone of voice it is delivered in. W h y must television announcers pick the busiest p a r t of the studio in which to do their analyses of the r e t u r n s ? There t h e y go tripping over cords s t r u n g will-nilly over the floor; stepping into pails of w a t e r left there by the cleaning

lady; and yet above all the u p r o a r t h a t seethes around them telling us t h a t a m a j o r upset is seen in the victory of Brillings over Wenking in the Kankakee primary. It hardly seems worth the effort and we hope he will p e r h a p s trip and fall with his head in the bucket, And how about the acting performances of the defeated candidates who w a n t to wish their victors a happy time in office. Must they smile so sweetly when it is a p p a r e n t to all the world, except their followers, t h a t they do not mean a thing they are saying ? T h e only example t h a t comes to mind right now is Averell Harriman, his political career washed up, telling a jam-packed house that he is happy about the fact t h a t Rockefeller beat him. I couldn't do it, and it must take an awful lot of grit, although I personally feel that if he would have growled into the camera a lot more people would believe him. Please, Ave, let's be human! This in a way wraps up our little analysis of whatever we were a n a lyzing. I hope that t h e politicians will take my comments to h e a r t and t h a t the next time we have an election it will be a quiet wellordered thing, and won't break into my watching of the George Goble show. No, I didn't vote either. I was too busy listening to the returns come in.

Kollen Hall by Sally One of the most recently built and modern buildings on Hope's campus is Kollen Dormitory. This completely new men's dormitory was completed in late summer of 1956. F o u r firms bid f o r the construction of Kollen Hall in October of 1955, and Elzinga and Volkers, of Holland, were awarded the contract. In 1955, while the new dorm was being built, it became necessary to tear down the barracks housing married students, the Emersonian House and the school clinic building, to provide adequate space f o r construction of the dorm.

Houtman The school clinic was then moved to its present position on 12th and College and local housing was found f o r married students. The Women's League of Hope College pledged to raise $50,000 to supply f u r n i s h i n g s f o r the million dollar dormitory. It was this and f o r m e r pledges t h a t helped realize the promise of a government loan f o r completion of Kollen dorm. The architect was Ralph Calder and the dorm is similar in design to Durfee Hall. Kollen dorm is L shaped, three stories high, and houses approximately 300 men in 150 modern rooms.

Albion Forces T r i p l e Loop Tie Meet the Dutch


Rowland Van Es — End Rowland is playing his first seaSeven senior members of H o p e ' s M I A A final college g a m e t o m o r r o w at Beloit.

Seven Seniors to See Final Action Tomorrow Seven seniors on this year's once beaten football squad will close out their college football careers tomorrow afternoon against Beloit College at Beloit, Wisconsin. For these men the gridiron has had its ups and downs. On the brighter side was the upset win over Hillsdale, snapping their string of 28 consecutive league victories, and also sharing of the conference championship with Albion and Hillsdale. It was the desire of the entire team to establish history with an undefeated and untied season, however, this bubble burst at the hands of the Albion College Britons last Saturday afternoon. These boys will never again have a chance to attain this goal; however, they extend their best wishes to the Hope teams of the f u t u r e , in hopes t h a t someday an undefeated season will be attained.
