Emancipate Our Dining Halls!! When we come to college we are faced with many m a j o r decisions which will g r e a t l y affect our lives and we are regarded by both the community and faculty, who keep telling us t h a t we are old enough to take the initiative, as young adults. Yet, when we enter the dining halls we are faced with a condition which leaves us with a feeling of either being grossly disillusioned by the faculty and community or t h a t if we do have the mentality to be in college our intelligence should be greatly insulted. This condition is the assigning of seats in the dining halls. As Freshmen, seats are assigned .to our female population and t h e males are l e f t to roam f r o m table to table. The motive behind the assigning of seats is a noble one, f o r it supposedly is a method of having the new students become better acquainted with each other. But why are the females assigned seats and the males not? P e r h a p s t h e males can better a d j u s t themselves to the " r a p i d " change of environment a t each meal however, this is beside the point. The f a c t is t h a t both the males and females should be given the opportunity to take the initiative on their own in meeting new friends. By the time we are Sophomores many of us have made the acquaintances which are necessary f o r full a d j u s t m e n t into the life of t h e college. We have chosen our particular friends with whom we get along exceptionally well and we have also made a number of other social contacts. Meals, when we are Sophomores, are when we take time f r o m our busy schedules and talk with our f r i e n d s about interests in common. We not only meet as a class in the dining hall but we meet as personal friends at individual tables. Still there persists the seating chart — a hangover f r o m the F r e s h m a n year — which tells us with whom or with whom we may not eat our meals. Lately, in Voorhees Hall we have not only had the women assigned to seats but the men as well were given a piece of paper to "sign up" at the table a t which t h e y were to eat f o r the next f e w weeks. To be sure t h a t none of the "bad little boys and girls" a r e not so naughty as to sit in the w r o n g s e a t s during these two week periods, the " w a r d e n " or head waitress — depending on whatever capacity she is acting in a t the time — will go around to each table during the meals and "check u p " to see if all the little kiddies are properly nestled in their prospective seats. (This leaves the people eating with the most disconcerting feeling t h a t they are being watched). Failure to find your assigned table results in a reprimand. (In one case a girl was "spoken t o " and special attention was given to the f a c t t h a t she find the " r i g h t " table). Here's an innovation not yet thought of — Why not have each person call out an assigned number and have roll taken at the meals? These conditions do not only a p p e a r in Voorhees but also in the Terrace Room — where the Juniors and Seniors dine. So many girls are assigned to some tables t h a t the poor males are seldom f o r t u n a t e enough to sit in groups of twos or threes. Thus f r o m its prevalence we see this custom is not the policy of the individual housemothers, whose fine work we appreciate. On the weekends we are given the privilege to choose our own table companions. Why can't this procedure be followed throughout the week since it works so well? Students on the college level have the ability to choose friends and make new acquaintances f o r themselves. Those who feel t h a t we do not posses these qualities greatly underestimate the student of today. I t is time f o r the rude awakening t h a t our dining halls should be emancipated! —C. H. P.

The Down Beat

From East & West

( A C P ) — C o l u m u n i s t Jean-Paul Richard surveys the pop music s c e n e f o r NORTHEASTERN N E W S , Northeastern University, Boston, and comes up with these views: Let's look a t what happened to "pop" music in the last few months. Some changes have occurred. Rock and Roll is still with us. It may have lost a bit of its popularity, but not enough to indicate t h a t it is on its way out as some people have predicted. A good beat still seems to be what a lot of listeners want. The last six months have seen the rapid rise and even more rapid downfall of Calypso. The Caribbean sound was the r a g e f o r a while, but it has now faded out of the picture almost completely. The lact of enough authentic material and the poor job of imitation probably cut the calypso craze short more than anything else. When the demand f o r calypso tunes arose, the market was flooded with poor imitations. Calypso may be going out, but Hawaiian music seems to be on theway in. At present there are several songs with sounds f r o m the islands which are rapidly gaining popularity . . .* The latest and most welcome additions to the music scene are the "comeback" songs. These old s t a n d a r d s have been freshened up with the new a r r a n g e m e n t s and have caught the public ear . . . One song is notable because it doesn't follow any trends. It would be g r e a t if it did s t a r t one though. " P a s s i n g S t r a n g e r s " has a definite modern sound about it. The melody and lyrics are good, but the tremendous delivery of Sarah Vaughn and Billy Eckstine really " m a k e " this song.

Numerically speaking of course. But why A.S.A. No. 1 and A.S.A. No. 2? Why not be imaginative and divide into A.S.A. "A" and A.S.A. " B " ? Lloyds of London recently insured one of our professors against the possibility of a Chapel chandelier falling on him. That's good thinking. May I suggest to you intelligent and thoughtful students of Hope College to quick run down to your local insurance agent and buy a policy or two. You never can tell nowadays what with the horsepower of today's cars, and Whutnixts in the sky. Does anybody have the bulletin f o r October 17, 1957? If you do, please forward to the public relations office. This bulletin announced a library fine of 87c, a record in modern Hope College, and we feel t h a t t h a t fine delinquent deserves a little credit.

Dorm Doings: Annex Antics It all s t a r t e d with the night of September 9. It has been going on ever since. The girls a t the Voorhees Annex haven't slowed down a bit and let's hope t h a t they don't. To begin with, about the third week of school, the basement of the Annex had the misfortune of flooding. This could have been quite humorous, except f o r the f a c t t h a t most of the girls had just taken their luggage down the day before. The net results of this episode were many warped suitcases, one wet basement, and many visits f r o m the dean.

who need it. COSMOPOLITAN Cosmopolitan's literary meeting this week promises to be a very special event. Bud Prins, a Cosmo alumnus of the class of '54, presently an executive with Michigan Bell Telephone, will be on hand to demonstrate many of the latest developments in our nation's telephone system, as well as predicting what we can expect in the f u t u r e in communications. A progress dealing with advancements in communications will also be shown. To complete the evening, Phil Toppen will present a humor paper entitled "Merchandising in the Middle Ages". A coffee break this coming Wed. evening will t e r m i n a t e the Cosmo rushing program f o r t h i s season. EMERSONIAN Last weekend the men of Phi Tau Nu held their annual square dance. This event was held at the North Shore Community Hall. Music f o r the evening was provided by C. Hughs and trio. This evening, Friday, Nov. 15, the Emersonian F r a t e r n i t y is holding a literary meeting. Paul Buit will present the humor paper and Paul N y k a m p will present a serious paper on "Insects". FRATERNAL The F r a t e r n a l society held a literary meeting last weekend. Jim Cooper presented the humor paper entitled "College Life a t Hope University". The serious paper was presented by Henry Doele who spoke on "Kremlin Changes". Jim Menzer provided special music on the guitar and Ty Rupp led group singing. Tomorrow night. Sat., Nov. 16, the F r a t e r s are holding their annual Hayride. All rushees are asked to meet a t the house a t 7:30. KNICKERBOCKER This p a s t weekend the Knickerbockers also held a literary meeting. Ron Brown presented a serious paper on Cosmogony. Special music was presented by Bob Tulenko who discussed and played Stan Kenton's "Conceptions". Last S a t u r d a y the f r a t e r n i t y held its annual "Gold Rush P a r t y " . Tonight, Friday, Nov. 15, the Knicks are holding their S t a g party. This party is by invitation only. Guest speaker a t the affair will be A1 Brandsdorfer of the Holland Evening Sentinel.

Perhaps the Annex itself needs mention a t this point. It is an old house, and of course many things come along with every old house. Take f o r instance the w a t e r system! The faucets marked " H " have cold water in them, and vice versa. Besides that, when someone downstairs is running w a t e r f o r her beauty bath, no w a t e r can be coaxed f r o m the upstairs faucets. And we must mention the heating system! The r a d i a t o r s were only recently fixed. Until then, the Annex w a s moderately chilly. Along about the time of Joyce Leighley's (she is one of the capable counselors) birthday, there were several nights when the lights of the Annex were on p a s t "lights out" time. The reason? . . . One night, the girls gave Joyce a party and the next three nights were -4 spent consuming all the food. We hope you have noticed our GOOD FOOD new Voorhees Annex sign.

A "Holiday in Heidelberg" was enjoyed last Friday night by the Dorian Sorority with their guests within the walls of the Blythefield Country Club. The special guests of the evening were Dr. and Mrs. H. Frissel and Mr. and Mrs. G. Brewer. Jo Barton, President, welcomed the guests and especially the Dorian alumnae, Mrs. Frissel and Mr.s Brewer. The atmosphere of Heidelberg was set by the decorations which were based on scenes f r o m the "Student Prince" and background music f r o m the same. Artel Newhouse gave the invocation, a f t e r which a delicious steak dinner was enjoyed. The Mistress of Ceremonies f o r the evening was Sally De Wolf.

Mert Vanderlind accounted for Hope's seventh touchdown. Bill Huibregtse converted four times, while., Jim Hoeksema ran across for a.xfifth e x t r a point.

Albion Scores The Britons' only score also came in the third quarter. Six passes brought Albion into the scoring column, as Gamble passed to Taylor and Larsen made the extra point. Hope closed out the scoring in the final period. Gene Van Dongen intercepted a pass and lateraled to Hendrickson, who made his way to the Albion 28. Several plays later Hendrickson ran into trouble but lateraled to Mert Vanderlind. Mert sped into the end zone, and the final score stood a t 47-7.
