CO-CHAMPSHIP MEANS NINE! Glory Day was more than an idle rumor. Meeting Sunday afternoon, a committee of Student Council officials outlined a program for the day which was correlated with a previously planned Armistice celebration.

Needed: Blood For Korea Students Urged To Donate Blood For Boys In Korea Last Monday's Chapel Service brought home a challenge to all Hope students. Each of us was asked to pledge a pint of blood to be used to save the lives of American soldiers wounded in Korea. Roy Adelberg and Phyllis Van Setters, who have both been donors, stated their belief in the program and made an appeal for all eligible students to participate in it.

On Tuesday, Dr. Anderson of the Michigan State Health Department spoke on the topic "A Life In Your Hands," in which he explained the process of giving blood, what happens to it after it is donated and the importance of getting it to Korea now.

These phenomenal weather conditions can't even be explained in terms of ocean breezes, air pressures, winds and altitudes. Oh, I suppose a t one time they could, but ever since the founding of Hope College things just haven't been the same. Back in those days students coming from the East, the West and the South suffered extreme cases of home sickness because they found Michigan weather so entirely different f r o m any weather they had known at home. They lost all pep and ambition. Their m a r k s began to drop. Naturally, the college showed a great concern. A board meeting was held and immediate action was taken. Each student was told to bring back to Michigan a little of his favorite weather from home. The result was the variety you have been witnessing. From California came the fog we saw this past Sunday morning. From the East came the snow and from the South the w a r m e r weather of this week. Every student now feels at home sometime during the year. When once one gets accustomed to it, Michigan isn't too bad. J u s t wait until the winter sports g e t s under way. What could be more thrilling than tobogganing out a t the dunes or ice skating in the field at nineteenth s t r e e t ? What sight is more beautiful than snow falling softly and forming a white carpet on the e a r t h ? Why not just enjoy it all ? Your favorite weather will be coming up soon.

VslUords What are the purposes of the YMCA and the \ W C A on a college campus? Most people know or at least could make an accurate guess. Promotion of religious programs, planning recreational activities, and creating a friendly air among the students all play a part in the Y's responsibility to the college. Here at Hope, the Y's carry their work beyond the limits of the campus into the Reformed Church. After Y elections in the Spring, both presidents select a young man and a young woman to serve as deputation chairmen. It is their duty to form the various deputation teams and to set the ball rolling. At the outset of the Fall term the chairmen send letters to the churches in the surrounding area with information concerning the teams and how to secure a team. Then the work really begins. Teams must be formed and contacted, transportation arranged, and programs planned. There are four types of popular programs. They are radio broadcasts, church services, C.E. meetings and hymn sings. The Y groups also receive requests to lead Ladies Aid Societies and mid-week services. For example, one group planned a program for a young married couples' organization in a Kalamazoo church last year.

Clare Booth Luce has said that only four percent of our populace gives sincere and frequent thanks for its many blessings. Once a year, however, it is traditional — as if tradition alone were sufficient warrant — for most of the remaining 06 percent to indicate in some token way (a slightly bowed head) some token appreciation (mostly emotional) of a few token gratuities (a house, a car, a job, America). While this is all very commendable, and equally inadequate, that for which tradition-obeisant America should give profoundest thanks — the great Christian Truth and heritage — is largely neglected. Fifteen-hundred years ago one of the most significant statements of Christian faith — significant both for its contribution to the literature and body of our tradition and, more pragmatically, for its effective rebuttal of the shortlived Apollinarian, Nestorian, and Eutychian heresies of the fifth century — the Chalcedonian creed was formulated. The ANCHOR is happy to publish here the text of this monumental Creed of Chalcedon, adopted at the fourth and fifth sessions (October 22 and 25) of the fourth ecumenical Council, meeting at Chalcedon, opposite Constantinople, Anno Domini 451: We, then, following the holy Fathers, all with one consent, teach men to confess one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the same perfect in Godhead and also perfect in manhood; truly God and truly man, of a reasonable (rational) soul and body; consubstantial (coessential) with the Father according to the Godhead, and consubstantial with us according to the Manhood; in all things like unto us, without sin; begotten before all ages of the Father according to the Godhead, and in these latter days, for us and for our salvation, born of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, ACCORDING TO THE MANHOOD; one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten, to be acknowledged in two natures, INCONFUSEDLY, U N C H A N G E A B L Y , INDIVISIBLY, INSEPARABLY ; the distinction of natures being by no means taken away by the union, but rather the property of each nature being preserved, and concurring in one Person and one Subsistence, not parted or divided into two persons, but one and the same Son, and only begotten, God the Word, the Lord Jesus Christ; as the prophets from the beginning (have declared) concerning him, and the Lord Jesus Christ himself has taught us, and the Creed of the holy Fathers has handed down to us.

Fraternally Speaking... Now that the first snow has fallen and Indians have given up hopes of summer, campus life adopts the sobriety of winter and leaves colorful fall behind. In harmony with the general mood, fraternities turn seriously to rushing prospective members. Joining a frat involves an important decision. Friendships are made that will last simply forever and forever. The decision must be the right one. There is a propensity to choose values in life that are temporary. The superficial, that which quickly fades away receives the highest premium. Lest any freshmen be caught by this modern mania for materialism, let them heed these wise words. If you are planning to join a frat, expend all your energies in making a wise choice. Fraternity membership is one of the durable things of college. Set aside the transient values of life. Throw your textbooks away and visit the various houses. Give up women for the five week rushing period, as they are of comparatively little and unlasting value. The great Irish tenor, Mario McLanza, expressed it in his soul-stirring rendition of "La Donna El Mobile" (Woman Is Fickle) in the cinema railroad epic The Great Caboose. Since you can't depend on females, seek rather the stable companionship of "The Boys". Attend the meetings of several frats; sit in on all night bull sessions about the relative merit of opening with a queen's or king's gambit in a chess game. In short, get to know the members well. The happiness of college depends on choosing the real and the important and choosing it wisely. — D. P.

Inactive members may become active at the discretion of the f r a t e r n i t i e s except in the cases where this would result in the membership exceeding 75. In these cases, the consent of the Council is required. I've known sugar-coated pills to work in some of these cases. 3. No rushing of any kind can begin until the week of November 16, 1951. Fraternities are put on their honor not to violate this by holding unauthorized meetings for the unofficial purpose of rushing. On my honor I will do my duty to not violate this. 4. Rushing begins immediately with November 1(1, 1951, and will continue until December 14, 1951. At this time, bids are to be sent out and each society may bid up to 80 men. I raise. 5. From 12:00 midnight, December 15, until December 17 will be a silent period. During this time bids will be returned to the Dean's Office. F r a t e r n i t i e s are urged to inform each prospective rushee of the necessity of returning an answer in formal style before the end of the time period. Shhhh! (5. On December 17 the bids will be cleared by the Council. If any f r a t e r n i t y has gone over their 75 limit, other f r a t e r n i t i e s will be allowed to bid to this number on the second bids; otherwise the limit will be 75. Then everything will be cleared by the Council. 7. On a later date a second bidding will take place and any society will have the right to fill out its number. At this time, following clearance by the council, bidding will be definitely closed for the school year of 1951-1952. But gently, don't slam i t ! 8. A rating of .7 figuring 3 for an A, 2 for a B, and 1 for a C, will be necessary in order for a pledge to be formally initiated. If he does not attain this with his mid-term grade, he cannot be considered for formal initiation until the following semester grades are available. What if ya ain't got no s m a r t s ? 9. Informal Initiation Week will be designated later. Heck! 10. Formal initiation may be set at the discretion of each f r a t e r n i t y . Leave us be discreet, however. 11. An orientation program will be held for all eligible men by the i n t e r f r a t e r n i t y council a s a group in the period before the rushing begins.

The actives had plenty of w a r m blankets, of course, but in order to better view the animals, it was necesary t h a t they remain uncovered. Luckily no cases of pneumonia were reported among the sophomore Sorosites this week, so I guess they all managed to warm up soon enough.

The serious portion of the meeting was then ably taken over by our guest speaker of the evening, Mr. Gil Van Wynen, President of the Holland Christian Business Men's Organization.

HARRIERS ARR TO P0IRT TOTAL Dutch IVfangle Bearcats To Earn Share In Title Frustrated too o f t e n by Hillsdale in his bids for the conference championship, Coach Al Vanderbush and his charges Saturday unleashed an offensive fury not seen here in recent years as they plastered the Bearcats to the tune of 47-0. The battle brought a part of the MIAA crown to Hope. It was a game of superlatives all the way for the D u t c h , f e a t u r e d by Ken Bauman's sparkling catches, Jim Willyard's brilliant runs, and a general quality of doing everything right displayed by the entire Dutch team. Although a touchdown aerial to Zeke Piersma was called back, Hope scored anyway the first time they got possession of the ball. A jumping catch by Bauman got the ball to the Hillsdale 13. J i m m y Willyard wriggled 10 yards to the 3 and then John Hamilton bucked over for the score. Bud Prins added the point.


by Bibler

last Thursday in a meeting of the presidents and a t h l e t i c directors f r o m each of t h e schools in the MIAA conference. The primary purpose of the g a t h e r i n g was to act as a clearing house for any m a t t e r s t h a t have arisen concerning the conference. Hope was represented by President Lubbers and Dean Hinga.

Current Hope Footballers To Be Banqueted


A banquet sponsored by the " H " Club alumni is scheduled for the evening of November 29 in Durfee Hall to honor the current edition of the Hope College football team. Guests will include members of the football squad, " H " Club members and alumni, and a few footballers from each of several high schools in the area.

Bearcats Threaten It was the next quarter before Hope scored again. Bauman came up with another spectacular catch on a 28-yard pass play. Then f r o m the 27 Ron Schipper tossed a pass which was scooped up by Ott VanderVelde in the end zone. The Bearcats tried to get an offensive going but it bogged down before the half. Intermission time gave Hope a 21-0 edge. Soon a f t e r halftime, with Hope in possession, the f a n s were t r e a t e d to one of the most spectacular plays of the season. A short screen pass from Schipper on the Hope 36 to Willyard started it off. Though hit about every five yards, sometimes by two or three tacklers, Willyard was not halted until pushed out on the Hillsdale 17. A pass to Zeke Piersma brought the ball to the one, and on the second plunging try Zeke went over. P r i n s made it 28-0. Seemingly inspired the Bearcats began moving t o w a r d s a score of their own, but the s t u r d y Dutch line held and smeared the Bearcats f o u r yards from paydirt. Hamilton ran the ball out to the 30 around left end, and then Bauman came t h r u with a n o t h e r leaping catch. More plunges took it down close to a score as the q u a r t e r ended. Seconds a f t e r the f o u r t h began, Fullback Don Hdndorp smacked over. Prins made it 35-0. Stellar defenseman Bill Bocks intercepted a pass minutes later and brought it back to the Hillsdale 13. Willyard scored several plays later f r o m the 2. The e x t r a point plays was messed up.

Kalamazoo College acted as host

The a p p a r e n t success of the meeting, the first to be called, seems to indicate that others will occur periodically.


Another leaping catch by Bauman set up the next TD on the four. Hamilton battered t h r u the line and Prins booted to give the Dutch a comfortable 14-point lead.

K College Hosts MIAA Big-Wigs

The high school men are to be brought along and shown the campus and general college life by former Hope men now holding coaching positions in these high schools.


Gridders Jubilant After Win; Gains Nine Toward Trophy Although forced to share it with a team t h e y decisively whipped, the Hope football team was nevertheless jubilant over taking the MIAA football crown, acquired through the mauling they administered the Hillsdale Bearcats Saturday afternoon. It was a fitting climax when, after the final gun. Coach Al Vanderbush was raised on the team's shoulders, along with assistants Ken Weller and Nick Yonker, and carried triumphantly from the field. Coach Al, who has barely missed out on the top position several times and mHtaed by inches in 1941) to this same Hillsdale team, led his charges on valiantly all season and with the Hag in sight inspired them to vanquish the one team standing in the way. With seemingly little prospects a t first of going very f a r this season, Al worked up a squad t h a t improved every game and now is a worthy holder of the conference flag. Tying for first place gives Hope nine points already and a good s t a r t toward the conference AllSports Trophy. The cross-country meet, which took place yesterday but whose results were not in a t press time, also counts in the trophy scoring, of course. The dope is that Hope's harriers have a good chance of taking at least a second place. Counting the eight points possibly garnered from taking the second spot, the Dutch would have a total of seventeen to date, a sizeable sum f o r so early in the y e a r . Chances f o r winning t h a t honor appear definitely good.

To lUeet Beloit In Finale With the conference season over, and a share of the crown tucked away, the Hope College football squad winds up its schedule by tackling the rough Beloit College Buccaneers S a t u r d a y in Beloit, Wisconsin. The power-packed Bucs are enjoying their best season since the w a r and one of the best in t h e i r history. A f o r m e r member school of the Mid-West Conference, Beloit this

T h e men had t h e i r s p i r i t s d a m p ened l a s t week at W e s t e r n Michigan when t h e y were r u n over by a t e a m of Big Ten calibre. T h e p r a c t i c e benefited the D u t c h m e n , t h o u g h , as m a n y of t h e i r w e a k n e s s e s w e r e revealed. The men who traveled to Kalamazoo l a s t w e e k w i l l a l s o be dressed for the Valparaiso j;ame: they are as follows: J e r r y Jacobson, Ron Hos, Hob Visser, Ken Van Regenmorter, Jun Hrcmer, Hob Hendrickson, Al Nelson, Hill Hoeskool. Hob Holema, Norm Schuilinp, Willard Rink, and Jess Kinp. Hope's second pame will be held Dec. H at Alma and the home opener will be Dec. 13, with Adrian supplying the opposition. Hy this time all the prospective basketballers presently participating in football will have tried out for the squad and Coach Visser's final "cut" will be administered. Hope's s c h e d u l e this year is rather weak, as it consists of only sixteen games. There is a game on the tentative list with Ripon of

Cross-Country Team Seen In Action By the time you read this, the

Tripp, Larry Fabunmi, Neil Van Heest, Jack C o n y , and Hob Hamilton. A few superior efforts could mean a first place for the Dutchmen. The only MIAA competition our harriers have met with is that of Albion and Kazoo. We romped over Kazoo, but twice Albion edged us by the slightest of margins.

MIAA cross-country will have been decided. All league dual meets have been done away with; therefore, all of Hope's chances rode in the one big consolidated meet which was held yesterday at Hillsdale. The fellows who carried the mail for Hope are Hob Roos, Wayne

Casting a critical eye at his harriers' respective styles is CrossCountry coach Hob Vanderham.

in order of descending proximity,

whatever that means, gallop Larry Fabunmi, Senior from Nigeria;


Harol.i VanZaerea, Junior from Mohawk, N. Y.; Rog Knopf, Junior from Muskegon Heights, Mich.; Niel Vanlleest, Seniors from Catskill, N. V.; I Job Hamilton, Freshman from New Hyde Park, N. Y.; Wayne Tripp, Senior from Troy, N. V.; and Hob ROOK, Senior from Williamson .\. V.

and in the past several years has come up with an aboveaverage group every year, this season marks only the second time in history Hope has come out on top. Each time however the Dutch have had to share first place with another team — in 19.'}4 with Kalamazoo and this year of course with Alma. This fact takes some of the edge off the success achieved by this year's squad, especially since we decisively trounced Alma and showed superiority over them. However, the conference championship is ours, and Coach Al Vanderbush, a f t e r coming close so often, can at last say he won it. Al c a n n o t be p r a i s e d too h i g h l y f o r his t r e m e n d o u s job. He s t a r t e d with little more t h a n a line and a q u a r t e r b a c k . T h e line is w i t h o u t d o u b t t h e best in t h e MIAA. A l t h o u g h t h e individual linemen rarely hit t h e headlines or even receive m e n t i o n , t h e y c e r t a i n l y c a n n o t be minimized. T h i s y e a r Hope's linemen p e r f o r m e d b e a u t i f u l l y , o p e n i n g up holes on offense, c r a s h i n g in to m a k e tackles on d e f e n s e . E a c h one knew his b u s i n e s s and did it r i g h t . T h e l i n e b a c k e r s did a good j o b also. E a c h t i m e t h e y w e r e needed, if t h e opposing r u n n e r did happen to break t h r o u g h t h e line, t h e y c a m e up to m a k e t h e tackle. T h e pass d e f e n s e w a s a d e q u a t e . On the whole t h e d e f e n s i v e t e a m p e r f o r m e d a d m i r a b l y and kept t h e o p p o n e n t s down to a m i n i m u m of y a r d a g e . But Al did his best work with the backfield on offense. Ron Schipper was the only returning veteran. His arm was as accurate as last year, and his protection was always excellent, so that his aerial record was outstanding. But outside of Schipper there was little returning material to choose from in making up the backfield. So the other three positions were filled by three men who had never before played college foothall. Freshman John Hamilton stepped into Tom VanWingen's old s h o e s and looked like a three-year veteran. He reeled off many long runs and his driving power counted many TDs from several yards out. So far he has scored nine touchdowns in eight g a m e s for 54 points. Zeke Piersma, though a junior, never played in college before, but started as a halfback. Jim Willyard, another freshman, filled in the other halfback position and was excellent all year, even though injured in several games. These two halfbacks showed great versatility. Both displayed running ability, continually racking up long gains and occasionally breaking into the clear for touchdown runs, besides showing themselves to be capable pass receivers. To Al and his assistants should go most of the credit for developing these three stars. T h e season is not yet over, of course. B u t w h a t e v e r happens tliis week one can say t h i s was a s u c c e s s f u l season. P e r h a p s n e x t y e a r or so t h e crown will be H o p e ' s and Hope's alone. A n y w a y , it's h a t s off to a g r e a t t e a m and, especially, a g r e a t coach.
