Sometime this week a committee of four will meet to decide which of three f o r m s the 1932 Milestone is to assume,— t h a t of a h u m o r magazine, a senior booklet, or a condensed It is the privilege and duty of the J u n i o r Class

to make the final choice, but a few comments are apropos. We mentioned first a humor magazine, which in our opinion is the first one to be discarded.

Must we resort to humor for

the best expression of our College life and t h o u g h t ?


the Milestone must be limited in its size, its contents should be of the highest quality, and it aim of a nobler n a t u r e than a series of jokes, however good they may be. If the Milestone is to take a non-pictorial form, a serious literary publication would be more acceptable than a humor sheet. The idea of a senior book is essentially selfish, and we believe the class will hesitate in using blanket fee money for such an individual class project. It is the Hope College Milestone we are considering, so let it represent the entire student body. The condensed Milestone form is the most logical and sensible of the three suggested types. We believe that every student will sympathize with the staff's effort to keep expenses down to the minimum, and a few derogatory comparisons with f o r m e r Milestones will be made. Group pictures can be used effectively and economically. Our final point is this:—size does not always imply excellence. We know that the Milestone of 1932 can be made of such quality t h a t it will be able to defy comparison. o

INTELLIGENCE—89.5% The change that was recently made in the m a r k i n g system was supposed to e l i m i n a t e t h e n a r r o w n e s s o f t h e numeral method. The change to the present system has been a forward step, but it is not perfectly satisfactory in that it has not been fully carried out. We a r e ostensibly using the letter system

but the idea

of numerical

r a t i n g still

dominates. It does not seem logical that one student's intelligence can be given a rating of 94 while another's can be 95. The advantage of using letters rather than numbers lies in the fact that under this system a student's marks fall into a more general class, and rating is excellent, good, average, poor or tailing. A mixture of two or more systems would seem to make for confusion.

Golden Rule of the various religions. A long and important business meeting was then held, which was cheered somewhat by a surprise treat by S. Winslow. Trying to talk with one's mouth full of carmel com isn't supposed to be a rule of good etiquette, but the Sorosites decided to forget that for one evening. When the business meeting was concluded, the Sigma sisters adjourned to their "What-Not Shelves" f o r the program. The first number, under the direction of S. Huizenga, was a "Silhouette," or a shadow operation. They didn't know S. Pellegrom was such an accompli sed surgeon. "The Music Box" was a delightful musical skit presented by S. Bosman, S. Keppel, as the charming little girl, and S. Smith, her French doll who came to life.
