P & M Brings Strange Love Rider Will Direct Music Groups Combine, Hot Jazz Numbers Tale to Stage in "•The Heiress" The Heiress, a play by Ruth and A g u s t u s Goetz, will be the second production of PaletU- and Masque's '53-54 series. The dates for the P & M production are Wednesday, Thursday, and S a t u r d a y , December 9, 10, and 12. There will be no performance on F r i d a y night because of the All-College Christmas p a r t y . The setting of the play is New York in the 1850's and t h e plot tells of a shy and plain young girl, Catherine Sloper, who falls desperately in love with a delightful young f o r t u n e hunter. Catherine's lack of worldliness prevents her f r o m realizing that the young man proposing to her is not entirely drawn to her by her charm.

Education Confab Held at Michigan Hope College was represented a t t h e Seventh Annual Conference on H i g h e r Education in Michigan by Dr. and Mrs. Lubbers, Dr. Elliott, and Miss Reeverts. This conference w a s held at the University of Michigan on November 17 and 18, and most Michigan colleges were represented. The reports of three commissions on higher education were considered. These g r o u p s were: Commission on Financing Higher Education, President's Commission on H i g h e r Education, and Commission on H u m a n Resources and Advanced Training. College Finances and t h e effect of the expected rise in college enrollment were a m o n g the topics discussed.

Pickens Tells of N.Y.C. Conference The United Nations YM-YW seminar opened in New York Friday, November 13, with a worship service and ended Sunday morning with a talk by M. M. Thomas, Indian student and Christian Movement leader. It was a conference concerning the world community and how we as Christians could be more a p a r t of it. Rev. Catchings, who spoke a t the opening service, said t h a t Christianity should - embody also the aims of the United Nations. " W e should r e m e m b e r , " he said, " the essential dignity of m a n ; we must reach a higher s t a g e on t h e level of life." In t h e UN we can s t r e n g t h e n our f a i t h with a wider cicle of friendship. To do this we must realize the different concepts of other nations and our own f a u l t s .

Voice of The Campus Yea Provincials! To The Editor: I read with interest the W h a t ' s On Your Mind? column in the last issue of the Anchor. Everyone seems to think Holland is "provincial." Well, sure. This is one of the city's biggest assets. People pay thousands of dollars each spring to revel in its atmosphere a t Tulip Time. W h a t they see are the "quaint" aspects of our culture. Holland's g r e a t e s t industry is the tourist trade. In this respect, Holland is not culturally dead, as some opinions in the column might suggest. Actually, the most "isolated and insulated" society in Holland is Hope College. Students on your campus seem to feel self-important in t h e role of enlightened intellectuals leading dreary Holland onward in an avant-grade cultural movement. Hope College is as much a p a r t of the city as any d r u g store, factory, or church, not a little green island in a grey sea of cultural apathy. Students should overcome their eggheadism. The citizens of Holland a r e not vegetables. Many of them have g r a d uated from Hope. You, the students, are Holland, regardless of whether you are f r o m Brooklyn or San Francisco. So come off it. Rome wasn't built in a day—it's still growing. So is Holland. Sincerely, John Robertson

Refute Gaspeer To the Editor: The very nature of Mr. Gaspeer's recent and r a t h e r offensive article, "Gaspeer Slaps Israelites", both invites and demands s t r o n g criticism. At the conclusion of t h a t finely confused specimen of muddled expression was the editor's notation, "Opinions expressed there-in are solely those of Mr. Gasper." In my judgment, the editors have flattered Mr. Gaspeer's fine collection of crude emotional ravings by ref e r i n g to them as opinions. Usually the word opinion implies thought, judgment or estimation all of which require at least some small amount of intelligence. If Mr. Gaspeer's ravings can be said to represent opinions then they do so in the loosest and worst sense of the word. I am vastly skeptical of a person who must resort to offensive rhetoric and crude implications (as Mr. Gaspeer does) in order t o gain s y m p a t h y to his views. Apparently Mr. Gaspeer agrees with w h a t Hitler had written in Mein Kampf: "If you wish to gain the s y m p a t h y of the broad masses, you must tell

them the crudest and most stupid things." This brings me to the m a t t e r of Mr. Gaspeer's absurd comments with reference to F o s t e r Dulles. It is clearly evident t h a t in Gaspeer's a t t e m p t to slash out a t anything within swinging range, he was curiously careful where the blows should fall—namely on Mr. Truman. It we are to accept Mr. Gaspeer's statement that T r u m a n "beg a t " the S t a t e of Israel then we cannot ignore the f a c t t h a t F o s t e r Dulles has fondly adopted t h a t "unholy child" with a f a t h e r l y a f fection t h a t is politically understandable. It is obvious t h a t the "strength and weight of the Jewish vote" has had as a significant e f fect upon the policies of F o s t e r Dulles as it had on those of H a r r y Truman. This is clearly pointed out in an article on page twenty of the No. 9, 1953, issue of TIME MAGAZINE. I r a t h e r doubt if Mr. Dulles' ability to "discipline" is as g r e a t as Gaspeer would have us believe. Very truly yours, Donald Leinbach

To The Editor: In the November thirteenth issue of the Anchor there appeared an article severely criticising the Israel nation and an ex-president of the United States. When I read the article I was g r e a t l y disturbed by the benighted terminology and material used. It seemed to me t h a t the charges a g a i n s t Mr. Truman and Israeli were entirely unfounded. The implications of the article a r e that Mr. T r u m a n is a crooked politician who served no good purpose during his tenure of office but to f u r t h e r confuse an already mixed-up world and to put f o r t h the interests of certain minority groups f o r the unworthy purpose of acquiring political f a v o r . No m a t t e r what our opinion of Mr. Truman m a y be, we have no right whatsoever to insinuate such unproven charges. There has never been any legitimate reason to doubt his sincerity. In America a man is innocent until he is shown beyond a reasonable doubt to be guilty. We have laws against such libelous statements, when they are not so cleverly and cowardly hidden behind a ruse of rhetoric. In the writer's critique of t h e Israeli nation more fallacies a p pear. In phraseology reeking with ambiguity he condemns the people of that country. Apparently he does not realize t h a t the whole land of Palestine r i g h t f u l l y belongs to the Jewish people. The land of Palestine w a s given to the Hebrew people over f o u r thousand y e a r s ago by God Himself. Throughout





Faith, Hope, And Charity, Too This has been called the age of anxiety. It is said that we live in a time of universal fear and basic insecurity. Yet, to say this is to speak only a part of the truth. For there is still love in the world and faith and hope, and yes, charity too. Emblematic of these is the Christmas Seal. The Christmas Seal is a sign of love: it is a sign of faith in the humanity of man; it is a sign of hope for the eventual victory over a terrible disease; it is, above all, a sign of charity which says to all who see it: "No man shall die, or misery endure, for that which I could do and leave undone." This is the very essence of the way of life we love and will preserve. It is an affirmation of man's unique self-dignity. That such an emblem should appear each year at Christmas time is particularly appropriate; it commends itself to our judgment at that season when we all observe the birth of Him who died that we migh live. Although a little thing in itself, the Christmas Seal exerts tremendous force. You are the agents and the custodians of that force, which has been used so well; which has saved, and will continue to save so many lives; which has reduced, and will continue to reduce, so much of suffering. Therefore, we may truly say, though there is anxiety and fear and insecurity throughout the land, there is also love, and faith and hope, and yes, charity. "And the greatest of these is charity."

Bos, Hope's Most Valuable, Hope Captain, and MIAA Most Valuable, along with Kazoo's Manny Glasser, was the big cog in the Dutch offensive p a t t e r n last season scoring 270 points in 18 games f o r a 15.0 average. At the present time, Willie Rink appears to have the inside track on Bos' old position. Willie's inspired play and prolific scoring have been the big surprise of the practice sessions. Coach Visser is also searching f o r someone to fill the places vacated by Bolema, Piersma, and Jacobson, regulars last year. Bolema specialized on rebounding, while " J a k e " chalked up 255 points. Although not a regular last season, P i e r s m a was invaluable because of his superb defensive work.

All in all, the outcome of this season depends a g r e a t deal on Coach Visser finding able replacements f o r Piersma, Jacobson, Bos and Bolema.
