The Women's Activities League opens the Kletz Lounge to all students between the hours of 8:00 and 10:30 P.M. Monday through Thursday each week. This announcement was made by W.A.L. President, Virginia Vanderborgh, at a meeting of all women students held in Carnegie Gym on Tuesday. The Grand Opening on Wednesday was highlighted by an exhibit in the lobby sponsored by the W.A.L. The W.A.L. installed food vending machines in the lobby. Additional entertainment is provided by television in the lounge, games, and magazines.

Other organizations will support the project by exhibiting displays in the lobby. Aid also comes f r o m the faculty who have donated magazines f o r the lounge. This project is the final result of a long felt need f o r a place of recreation and relaxation on campus. Artel Newhouse, assisted by Judy Mulder and Ellyn Arendsen, is directing a r r a n g e m e n t s f o r the W.A.L. Previous attempts to open the Kletz in the evening were sponsored by Alcor and the Student Council, but were unsuccessful.

Sudekum To Address I.R. C. Guest speaker at the December 4 meeting of the International Relations Club will be Mr. Lothar Sudekum," United States Manager of the Union Reinsurance Company of Zurich, Switzerland. His talk a t 4 p.m. in the Koffee Kletz and Lounge, on the prospects for American business in the field of international finance is the sixth in the current IRC series "United States Potential in the World of Tomorrow.

• #

Through his personal contacts and position in the field of international insurance, Mr. Sudekum has firsthand knowledge of business conditions in the United States and various p a r t s of Europe. His analysis of the prospects f o r U.S. business in the world of tomorrow will be of considerable interest, not only to IRC members, but to other students as well. Mr. Sudekum was born in Berlin, Germany, where his f a t h e r , Dr. Albert Sudekum, was one of the leading democratic politicians in the parliament of the German Empire and later became the first finance minister of the newly established Republic. Mr. Sudekum attended schools in Germany and Switzerland and later studied law and economics a t the Universities of Berlin, Breslau, and Heidelberg. Finding the oppressive restrictions of Hitler's Germany too unpleasant to endure, and a f t e r some serious arguments with the SS, Mr. Sudekum departed f o r the United States. He was naturalized in 1939.

The discussion ended on a note which gave t h e f u t u r e studentteachers a feeling of anticipation when they learned t h a t not only do student teachers learn f r o m their critic teachers, but that the reverse is also true. Following the discussion, ref r e s h m e n t s were served.

But, Can We? President Eisenhower calls f o r a reconsideration of our educational system. Why don't we teach f o u r years of mathematics, biology, chemistry, and physics in high school ? All we, as states, need do is join the national government, by laws not yet passed, to spend millions more on our schools. Senator Johnson calls for a reconsideration of our missile and satellite programs. W h y don't we have two, or perhaps, by the time you read this, three or four, manmade satellites circling the e a r t h ? All we need do is r e a r r a n g e management of research sites and spend millions more on this research. Secretary Dulles calls f o r a reconsideration of our foreign relations. Why don't we approach the disgustingly neutral peoples of the world, whose support we need, by offering democratic ideals? All we need do is take money f r o m arms-offering, or, more likely, spend more millions, to educate and put to work more social scientists. These three men plead f o r plans, each supposedly panacean in character, which we have no space here to evaluate or rank. But we can make one observation. They all call f o r the spending of more money. In other words, no m a t t e r which of these pleas might be heard, the people of America would have to spend more money to answer it. And to spend more f o r education, research, or propaganda would necessitate spending less f o r the luxuries now purchased so freely in our country. But, the American economy is dependent on the m a n u f a c t u r e and absorption of these luxuries. T h a t ' s why we don't. But, can we? —Charles J. Lemmen I.R.C. Vice president

The Hope College Dutchmen completed one of their finest football seasons last Saturday a f t e r noon a t Riverview P a r k , and did so in a fitting manner, shutting out Beloit's Buccaneers 21-0. This year's team, under coaches Russ De Vette and Gord Brewer, compiled a very impressive record of seven wins and two losses. Both defeats the Dutch suffered were one-pointers. A f t e r stifling E a s t e r n Michigan, 19-6, in the season's opener, Hope dropped a 14-13 decision to Alma, as the Scots tallied in the final minute of play. The other setback saw Hope lose a 7-6 thriller to unbeaten Hillsdale. Buccaneers run Aground Hope had little trouble, however, in vanquishing non-conference foo Beloit last Saturday. The Dutch dominated play all the way. Hope's opening touchdown came on the first play of the second quarter, and completed a sustained drive of 41 yards in eight plays. Quarterback Mert Vanderlind flipped a pass to Ron Bekuis for the score, and Huibregtse added the extra point to give Hope a 7-0 advantage. The play was set up as Hendrickson carried the ball to the 19 in two runs. Vanderlind's pass to Rupp was another key play. • Hope Adds Another A f t e r the kickoff which followed, Beloit was unable to move the ball and was forced to punt. Bekuis took the boot on the Hope 40 and scampered to the Beloit 42. A 15-yard penalty assessed against the Buccaneers moved the pigskin to the 27. Rupp carried it to the 19 and Menzer to the 14. The Dutch were called offside on the next play, but runs by Rupp and Bekuis brought the ball to the 12. Vanderlind kept the ball and ran to the eight. Then he produced another Hope score by handing off to halfback Jim Hoeksema, who carried the ball into the end zone. Huibregtse's conversion was good. There was no more scoring in the first half, and Hope led 14-0 as both teams headed for the locker rooms. Hendrickson Scores J e r r y Hendrickson, Hope's leading scorer, accounted for the final Dutch touchdown. Near the end of the third quarter, Hope got possession of the ball on their own 44. Rupp carried to the 46 and Hoeksema brought the ball to the Beloit 45 in two carries. A f t e r Hoeksema had given the Dutchmen a first down on the 24 Bekuis made his way to the 27. Hope's drive was temporarily stalled, but Vanderlind's pass to Hoeksema on the 18 got things rolling again. The third q u a r t e r ended with Hope in possession on the Bucs' seventeen. Hoeksema carried to the 8, and on the next play Hendrickson sped around left end f o r the score. When there was some trouble setting up the ball f o r the e x t r a point a t t e m p t , Huibregtse picked it up and ran it in to make the score Hope 21, Beloit 0. A passing attack by the visitors in the final seconds was in vain. Hoeksema Top Ground Gainer Jim Hoeksema run f o r 58 yards in 17 plays to . lead the Dutch. Hendrickson had 43 y a r d s and Vanderlind 40. Once again, Hope's ground defense was tops. Hope also had 17 first downs to eight f o r Beloit.
