A f e w weeks ago, when butter ' rationing went into effect, many housewives hurried t o as many stores as possible to see how many pounds of b u t t e r they could accumulate before Monday morning. Few people stopped to think there is a w a r on and our soldiers need more b u t t e r and there is a shortage of this commodity. T h e same procedure was followed in sugar, coffee, a n d any other rationed foods that t h e government has tried to save. Their explanation of such conduct, if any explanation is forthcoming, is to find f a u l t with the way t h e administration is handling the situation. This past summer I worked at a w a r plant. It was a fine experience a n d I enjoyed the companionship of the men I worked with. However, one thought that was prevalent among the workers was: Are we getting as much money at our j o b as they are in Muskegon or Grand Rapids or some other nearby town ? Having been a school teacher all my life and never having been more than a month ahead of m y creditors, I couldn't blame them f o r wanting to m a k e all they could, but once again I couldn't help but think of t h e millions of boys in our a r m y not making over fifty dollars a month. This all leads me t o the point I want t o make. Let's t u r n the spotlight on ourselves. Americans are f a s t becoming a nation of selfish individuals, caring little about what happens to anyone outside their own immediate family. We can't win a war t h a t way, or even conceive a peace that would be just and lasting under such circumstances. I've been coaching boys in football f o r twenty years and the one idea I've always tried hard to get across was t h a t you need blockers ahead of the ball c a r r i e r s and without t h e m very little progress can be m a d e by t h e l a t t e r . I remember a boy by the name of Jim Nettinga who was p e r h a p s the best blocker I ever coached. He played three years of football a t Hope and I d o u b t very much if he ever carried t h e ball half a dozen times in those years. Other boys made the All-Conference team c a r r y i n g the ball behind J i m ' s interference, but when he had played his last g a m e and I'd thanked him f o r his fine work he said to m e : "Coach, it's been a lot of f u n to t a k e down the last man and see our ball carriers cross the goal line standing u p . " W h a t America needs today is more blockers that a r e willing to f o r g e t their own diflTiculties, stop looking for flaws in o t h e r , and help Uncle Sam cross t h e goal line standing up.

Faculty Wives Entertain Frosh, Seniors at Tea T h e faculty, army staff, seniors and f r e s h m e n were delightfully entertained a t the F a c u l t y Wives Club annual tea l a s t Friday. Dr. Wiener's home was decorated with yellow chrysanthemums and looked very lovely. During the t e a Jeff Wieraum a n d Betty Van Lente played chamber music.

THANKSGIVING—1943 Among the ideals fallen as war casualties may well be included "Thanksgiving — 1943." We do not mean to intimate that Thanksgiving may be forgotten this year, but merely t h a t its basic ideals may be forsaken. This war, naturally enough, has distorted many traditional things, among them a real sense of gratitude for those items with which we have been so richly blessed. So g r e a t an emphasis has been placed upon mankind and its machinations t h a t we are sometimes disposed to forget the real source of our existence. If our g r a t i t u d e for the mercies and b l e s s i n g s of Heaven was as fervent as our petitions for these same mercies and blessings, we would not be so humanistically inclined. Let us analyze our Thanksgiving day. Our first and main t h o u g h t is: " I t is a holiday!" Yet there are those few who must work. Does this obliterate their gratification? If we don't have a "whooping" time the night before and sleep late, some of us may go to church. Why ? Some few go in earnestness to present their prayers of thanksgiving; others, because it is good business to be seen there; still others, to pay cash to the collection plate for the blessings of the past year. Truly, there are those who, in rank stupidity, suppose God to expect gratitude-payments in dollars and cents. How much gratitude can be expressed with money or with prayers muttered in rote. We do not consider it within our province to preach, but we cannot help but

think t h a t our most sincere p r a y e r s of thanksgiving a r e not uttered — they are done. Our deeds best express our gratitude. Even those who are sincerely t h a n k f u l tend to be so only f o r the material things of life — money, land, food, possessions. But f o r the intangible private and personal possessions of safety, immunity, life, liberty, and integrity we feel no obligation. These, more than any other, deserve the thanksgiving of a wholesome life. Possibly it is here where we have fallen down. Have we shown our g r a t i t u d e to God for the "boys on the f r o n t " who protect our blessings? Have we shown it to the boys themselves? Many support their " y e a " only with the monetary aid they have given their church or the w a r effort. But it tak es more than t h a t . We must keep the integrity of our f a i t h . Does the draft-dodger display gratitude with his unwillingness to give to others in exchange f o r w h a t he has been given f r e e ? Is the girl with a boy friend on both the home f r o n t and the war f r o n t g r a t e f u l f o r the meaning of t h e ring, " t h i r d finger — left h a n d ? " Is anyone g r a t e f u l , who under a pretense of patriotism, sacrifices his or her own reputation for their own pleasure or profit? Are there no longer any standa r d s t h a t stand ? Is Thanksgiving merely a session to fool God by a t t e m p t i n g to convince Him t h a t we do possess g r a t i tude even though we can't display it day by day, deed by deed ? HARLAND STEELE.

None of our g r e a t universities o r colleges, however, has wholly done away with its teaching of the humanities or abandoned the intention of reviving this phase of its activities a t the w a r ' s end. Changes in teaching methods m a y be expected. No doubt interest will be focused on new subjects a s a consequence of our f r e s h awareness of the Orient, of Latin America and of the Soviet Union. But such changes can be counted upon to broaden, r a t h e r t h a n narrow, the scope of our intellectual concern.

AMERICAN HEROES BY LEFF

Men's Union Holds "Painting" Meeting

\

SOROSIS • SIBYLLINE

ing of the sorority songs and 70 enthusiastic gals adjourned to the eating of dessert, pumpkin pie a la mode. Clever programs in the form of pumpkin pie wedges listed program numbers as various courses on the Thanksgiving menu.

Sorosis and Sibylline sorority members rushed the season a bit when they gathered in the Commons Room, Friday night, Nov. 19, f o r a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner, served under the able direction of Betty De Vries.

THESAURIAN Thanksgiving was the theme of the last Thesaurian meeting—Betty Jayne Smith, chairman. The traditional Thanksgiving psalm was read by Verladine Saunders, who also led the group in sentence prayers. "Thanksgiving Thoughts," a paper on the meaning of this season, was read by Lucille Tenninga. Nellie Ritsema then favored the group with a t r u m p e t solo, "Thanksgiving Melodies." She was accompanied by Helen Bleeker. A h u m o r o u s skit, "Thanksgiving Maize," was given by Jean and Lois Meulendyke and Helen Bleeker. With the singing of the Thesaurian song, the meeting was adjourned. The freshmen had charge of the November 12 meeting. Nellie Ritsema opened the meeting with a piano solo. Barbara Doucher read a poem, "Janie's Gone to College." Betty Timmer then read a letter typical of those written home by a very green f r e s h m a n during the first week of college. Anne Fiske directed the singing of familiar songs, a f t e r which Marion Dame took charge of the fun period.

An appropriate poem and the Thanksgiving psalm read by Vivian Tardiff were the opening devotions, " f u r k e y on the Loose," an interesting composition describing the exciting chaM of the doomed gobbler by an ambitious f a r m e r , was played as a piano duet by Myra Kleis, Sibylline, and Marge Friesema, Sorosite. Sorosite Milly Scholten gave f o r t h with the evening's serious p a p e r in which she contrasted Thanksgiving Day, 1621, with Thanksgiving Day, 1943, a t the same time enumerating the msny blessings f o r which we should express our thanks.

Singing of old favorites and the service songs was led by Norma Lemmer and Rose Seith with Mae Vander Linden as accompanist. N a t Bosman was n a r r a t o r for the Sorosis pledges' skit which told of the photographic f e a t accomplished when the "Pop and Mom Van Snodgrass" had their "pitcher took" with all the youngun's just prior to their Thanksgiving feast. Participating were Lois Vander Schel as shaky old Gramp himself, Phyllis Barense as shiftless Uncle Rastus, Lois Hospers a s A u n t (still looking f o r a m a n ) Maudia, Esther Bogart as a gay blade of the 9 0 ^ with handle-bar mustache, Bette Van Dyke as the worn-out wife of an unappreciative husband, Doris Frederick as a New Y o r k flapper, J o a n Beveridge and Dorothy Atkins as "two f r e s h kids," Bobbie and Virginia Bilkert as twin hepcats and Eleanor Holleman as Granny, who smiled in spite of it all.

DELPHI Remember the saying about "Go buy yourself a new hat if you feel b l u e ? " Delphi sisters didn't feel blue last Friday night, but they decided to go window shopping f o r h a t s even if they didn't have a good

Welcoming the Sibyllines to the joint meeting was Hostess Norma Lemmer, Sorosis prexy, who accepted President Bobbie Reed's response f o r Sigma Iota Beta. Ex change of roll calls was held with Scribblers Rose Seith a n d Fritzi Jonkman, sorority secretaries, recording the absentees.

Introduced by "Muscles Jones," the prop gal, in the person of Sib Ruth Mary Cook, the Sibylline frosh presented a skit depicting a hectic night of activity in the gfrls* dorm. Viv Dykema as "Mom" recounted her daughter in checked rompers and hairbow, Phyllis Haskin, the story of the ordeal. Others in the act were Marian Reus who shone in red flannel pj's and Jean De Ruiter, Anne Vander Veere, Vada Mae Efird, Ruth Bartholomew, Harriet Hains, Vera Pennings, Edna May Tatenhove, Genevieve Boshart and Carol Kile, who appeared, unannounced, several times to add to the f u n .

The Men's Union has held two meetings since the last issue of the Anchor. The first of these, the usual literary-business meeting, took place on November 12 in the Union Room. The evening's humor paper was in charge of "Wes" Dykstra, and Oken Koeppe gave an Englishman's s e r i o u s views on India.

DORIAN War spells service. Last Thursday night the members of Kappa Beta Phi donned cotton dresses and bandanas, to spend some hours folding surgical dressings a t the Red Cross center. A busy hum of chatter and song w a s prevalent as all hands busily concentrated their efforts on vital wor work. Another evening, educationally constructive, was spent at the Dutch Museum, examining the various exhibits and photographs. Dorian found the huge clock, which illustrates the organization of the Dutch government, most intriguing and the ensuing moving pictures of the Dutch East Indies and Bali, most interesting.

Following a critic's report by Sibyl Peris Parker, the group formed a large circle f o r the sing-

excuse to buy one. Boots McCann and Marge Gyspers were in charge and provided programs in the form of dainty little hat boxes f o r the girls to carry their imaginary bonnets in. D e l p h i a n Muriel Mackeprang tried on a simple and sweet little "Sunday-Go-to-Meeting

Bonnet,"

while she led devotions. Delphi put out the Welcome mat for two guests. Lou Vande Bunte, who sang "Danny Boy" and "In My Dream of Tomorrow," accompanied by his sister, Ruth.

Hilarious laughter was aroused when Jeanne Timmerman tried on all sorts of silly creations f o r us by means of her humor paper. A serious vein of thought was injected into the meeting by Peggy Cross who was wearing a conservative tam. Her serious paper had for its theme "Friendship," and leaving the subject of hats, our thoughts were led to the different types of faces under them and what they mean.

WOMEN'S

Herewith, I, the unknown, present all dope — past, present, and f u t u r e on Women's Athletics. Uniforms may be plentiful but the females are in the limelight now. We can't be overshadowed by such a few khaki-cocky males on the campus! Turkey Trot Thursday is TURKEY day! Yes, Thanksgiving day is here again — meaning a little vacation, too. My mouth waters and my tongue hangs out when I think about the roast turkey, rich dressing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, apples and nuts. Oh — can this be a d r e a m ?

Peeping in on the " g r e e n e r " side of sports I find that the frosh Amazons are really in condish. But oh how they groan when it comes to exercises! I won't mention the effects on the following day. They've also tried to knock each other out and down playing volleyball. It can be a rip-roarin' game! Now that the snow (as of Friday) has soaked into the brown earth f o r a few days — no slippery steps or slides to Van Raalte via the library — perhaps riding will be given another chance. Six horseminded gals were going to try their luck yesterday jogging along the lonely trail through the leafless woods. Of course, that is — if the weather permitted and Milly could bribe her mom f o r the "gasychassy." Oh, lemme see — have I covered all the dope? I reckson so.

The second meeting, held last Friday, wasn't literary and it wasn't business — in f a c t it wasn't even a meeting. You see, the boys got together and painted their room. George Claver was in charge and he saw to it t h a t a few, selected, artistically minded individuals — like Buter and Meussen — were provided with brushes with which to paint. The less-talented washed walls or stood around. Almost everyone did something, though; Bill Brandli's "one-man show" was resumed, and big men — like Funkes and Stryker — were employed to move furniture. But conflicting interests were in play; there was a Sorosis-Sibylline party on the first floor, so every fifteen minutes Hine would take roll to see that everything was "all right." Also Hine and t h e "All Male Chorus" were in session; they dried the paint on the walls by singing: "OH, NO, YOU A I N T " — "Oh, Yes, I A m ! " — "OH, NO, YOU A I N T " - "Oh, yes I am; I'm the wisest man in Siam — yes, I a m ! " Thus Hine got the last word and was l e f t under a false impression. Later Len Sibley came over to take flash pictures. But there's a shortage of flash bulbs; so Del Vander H a a r barred his Pepsodentwhite teeth, shone on the room, and Sibley snapped the picture. A f t e r two hours, a lot of things were painted up — nineteen pants, nineteen pair of pants, nineteen shirts, and one wall.

camps Heemstra Last Friday, A/C Ray Heemstra was moved to his next base, W.T.S. perhaps at Kalamazoo, which would suit him fine: "I am very anxious to see how things are Koing now that the Army has arrived . . . About all I can say of the service is that I like it swell, especially the Air Corps branch of the Navy. We are really receiving good training which will be of great value to us in later life. The old saying that 'Navy chow is the best in the world' is all truth. They really feed us swell here and we sure do enjoy it." Henrickson Pvt. "Slim" Henrickson is in Instrument and Survey School, at Fort Ord, Calif. Says "Slim": "I'm getting sick of this California weather. During my stay at Camp Roberts (five months of basic), 1 didn't see a single drop of rain. Just sun and wind and if you don't think that didn't get tiresome, you've got another guess coming. However, 1 did manage to get a pretty good tan when 1 was there. I'm now at Fort Ord which is right on the coast. (I'm about a quarter of a mile from the ocean, and about a hundred miles south of Frisco.) And here I'll tell you that I've definitely seen the celebrated California fog. It's so thick you can cut it with a knife, and you keep thinking that a fish is going to swim by any minute. I'll undoubtedly get used to it though." Heitbrink Cpl. Johnny Heitbrink is in O.C.S. at Duke University, in the Finance Division of the Army, where he attends all the big football games, but fails to find the "sparkle" which prevails at Hope g a m e s . He says that life and studying at Hope are a cinch compared to the studying and life of an O.C.S.'er.

Dykstra Midshipman George Dykstra is expecting to graduate from Midshipman School at Columbia University, around Thanksgiving, and receive his commission of Ensign. The Navy has given them a chancc to see all types of boats, and to become acquainted with Mosquito boats, through cruises on them. Their main subjects are math and science, which are really tough. Davis From Roy Davis comes news of Hope's Denisonians: "They really haven't killed me yet, but they're sure trying." They think the commanding officer must be having nightmares, for he is enforcing a "lot of stiff rules for the whole gang." One is confinement to their rooms every night from 7-9. The seniors are wondering why they are still in Granville. They were expecting to be sent to med school, but were given orders to register at Denison again. They think probably most of them will be given a try at Midshipman School. Most the fellows will be fiven a fifteen-day furlough about the time of our Christmas vacation. Zoet Lt. Chuck Zoet is in - N o r t h Africa manning a United States Catalina 1*8^2 flying boat, which is a long distance flyer, but slow. He likes his work, but would rather fly a faster bomber.

"Plans are coming right along for the WAL annual Christmas party," says lone Strick, chairman of the event. This party will be held the week before Christmas vacation and will be given, as usual, for some of the school children of Holland. Also in connection with Christmas, WAL and the Musical Arts Club are planning an evening of all-school caroling. Frieda Grote is in charge of this project. It is planned that the entire campus turn out for an evening of "cheer," that is, singing carols f o r the people of Holland, and then, adjourning for refreshments.
