The 33rd annual performance of Handel's great oratorio, The Messiah, will be p r e s e n t e d Tuesday, December 12, at 8 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel, according to Dr. Robert W. Cavanaugh. Chairman of the Hope College Music Department. Four distinguished soloists from Chicago will be backed by a 200-voice chorus comprised of the college's Chapel and Chancel Choirs, accompanied by members of the orchestra, Roger Rietberg, organist, and Anthony Kooiker, pianist. Dr. Cavanaugh, who will conduct the traditional performance, has announced the following soloists: Joyce Morrison, soprano; Patricia Sage, contralto; Lawrence Lane, tenor; and Richard Schreiber, baritone. Miss Morrison, who is currently on the voice faculty at Wheaton College, received her B.A. from Augustana and her

M.M. from the American Conservatory of Music. She has appeared as soloist with numerous oratorio societies and choruses, including the Handel Oratorio Society of Rock Island, European Oratorio Society of Morgan Park, Hammond Presbyterian Chorus, Chicago Heights Civic Symphony, the Tri-City Symphony Orchestra of Davenport, Iowa, and others. Miss Sage, contralto, as a soloist member of the famed Rockefeller Chapel Choir, University of Chicago, has performed all the major Bach scores, as well as many other oratorios. She has sung with the Lyric Opera of Chicago and has appeared on television both as a piano soloist and as a singer. Miss S'age will be touring Europe in the spring of 1962. Recently returned from Italy where he studied and performed, Lawrence Lane will sing the te-

nor solos for the Hope College Messiah performance. Mr. Lane has appeared as soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Bethany Messiah Festival in Lindsborg, Kansas. He was also soloist for Carlisle Floyd's "Wuthering Heights" in its Midwest premiere in Chicago.

Not new to Holland audiences is Richard Schreiber, baritone, who was soloist for the 1957 and 58 Hope College Messiah performances. He has sung roles in The Elijah, Judas Maccabaeus, the Verdi, Requiem, Brahm's Requiem and others. Schreiber has also soloed with the American Opera Company, the Chicago City Opera Company, the Milwaukee Opera Association and others. Tickets for the performance are available at the Student Council office.

P & M's 'Medea' Scores Opening Night Success

< *




At the first meeting of the cast chosen to appear in Palette and Masque's current production of Euripides' Me^ea, Director David Karsten was overhead to have said: "Now that we have decided to produce this play, we had better understand one thing, Medea will be great or it will be nothing." He was so right. Medea opened Thursday night in the Music Building Auditorium. And it was great. Donna Davis, junior speech major from Catskill, New York, displayed an artistry which can only result from hours of dedicated preparation, as she fashioned the brilliant lines of the Robinson Jeffers adaptation of the original Greek drama into an inspired re-creation of the title role of Medea. B. J. Berghorst, Zeeland junior. showed sensitivity and fine control in his moving portrayal of Jason, Medea's unfaithful husband and the hero of the mythological tale of the Golden Fleece. Nancy Rees, as Medea's nurse, complemented the two principals beautifully. Miss Rees, a junior from Brooklyn, handled some difficult transitional passages feelingly and with clarity as the immortal Greek tragedy unfolded. Euripides' play takes up the story of Medea and Jason after their return to Greece, following the adventure of the Golden Fleece at Colchis. Mythology readers will recall that Medea betrayed her father and murdered her brother in order to aid Jason in his celebrated quest. Pelias, who sent Jason on his expedition, was also killed through the ruthlessness of Medea, who became Jason's wife, and the couple fled the court of Pelias to live in Corinth, where two sons are born to them. In Corinth, Jason renounces Medea to marry Creusa, the daughter of Creon, king of Corinth. Jason thus is established

by Bob Jaehnig as the heir apparent to Creon's throne. According to the ways of her Barbarian people, Medea plots revenge on Jason, through the death of his new bride and the sons he had by Medea. Creon was convincingly portrayed Thursday night by Carl Benes. Ken Baron, a newcomer to the P & M stage, adequately filled the role of Aegeus, King of Athens, who pledged his protection to Medea when she has had her revenge. Karl Jicha, as the tutor to the sons of Medea and Jason, was a warmly engaging Greek scholar; Charles Vander Broek and Mark Vander Meer were hi? youthful charges, and have ar* early start toward becoming polished thespians. Jeffers has ' eliminated the Chorus of - Euripides' origina1 play, and inserted instead the roles of three Women of Corinth. This trio of women, Edith Prince, Virginia Mortensen and Leanne Ridderhoff, never speak in unison, and application to the gods is reduced to the bare minimum for a Greek drama. The stage movements of the Three Women were generally well executed, but reading and interpretation of some of their passage was not up to the standards of the rest of the show. There were weak spots in some of the technical aspects of the production. The impressionistic stage setting, which approaches a theater-in-the-round, was effective, but lighting posed problems for the usually ultraefficient P & M technical crews. An all-too-obvious and ill-advised lighting change at the cli-« max of the play threatened the effectiveness of the passage. But the original assessment still stands. Medea is a monumental project for any college theater group, and a milestone for Hope's Little Theater. It all happens again tonight and Saturday night, and it is doubtful that a dollar ever bought a finer evening's entertainment at Hope College.

Plans have been completed for the seventh annual Hope College Vienna Summer School, according to Dr. Paul Fried, director, who is currently on leave of absence in Austria. The program will begin in New York on June 9 and will end there on September 1. As in the past years the group will travel to Europe on a student ship, the MS Aurelia, and will return by plane. Students will again be free to make their own trans-Atlantic travel arrangements if they wish to stay in Europe after September 1. The first three weeks in Europe, June 17 to July 6, will be devoted to a carefully organized study tour, designed to introduce students to the cultural traditions and contemporary problems of Western Europe. During this time the group will travel through France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

In addition to visits to standard tourist activities, the study tour will include briefings on European defense at NATO headquarters in Paris and on European economic integration at the Common Market in Brussels; lectures in the Dutch Parliament in the Hague and at the German Bundestag in Bonn; visits to two European industrial plants; meetings with German students at the University of Freiburg; and a reception at the Swiss Institute of International Studies in Zurich. The actual summer session will be held in Vienna from J u ly 9 to August 17. Classes, as in the past, will be held at the Institute of European Studies, University of Vienna. Students will live in homes, and in the evening will eat at restaurants of their own choice. Two longer excursions from Vienna are scheduled during this six-week period. The first is a


Appearing in the lead roles of Medea are B. J. Berghorst, and Donna Davis. The two young supporting actors are Mark Vander Meer and Charles Vander Boek.

three-day trip to Prague, Czechoslovakia, to give students a first-hand look behind the Iron Curtain. The other, during the first weekend in August, will take students to Salzburg and the Austrian lake country, where they may attend one or more operas and concerts during the Salzburg Music Festival. Following the academic program in Vienna, students will have two weeks for independent travel. The group will reassemble in Brussels on August 30 for a pre-departure evaluation session. Hope students may request permission to spend their first semester at the Institute of European Studies under the new European Semester Plan. The cost of the full program, including ship passage, study tour, six weeks in Vienna, excursion to Prague, and return flight, is $1,055. Charge for transportation, room and board, as well as various excursions on the optional Salzburg week end is $45. The current cost of the additional semester in Europe is $750. Scholarships Awarded President Lubbers announced that four scholarships in the amount of five hundred dollars each will be awarded to outstanding Hope College Sophomores or Juniors who wish to study in Vienna next summer. To qualify for one of these scholarships students must have spent at least one year at Hope College and must plan to return to the college following their summer in Vienna. They should have an academic grade average of 3.2 or above and they must be recommended by three members of the faculty, including the chairman of their department and the dean of men or women. Financial need will not be a primary consideration but may be considered in deciding between two otherwise similar applications. Students wishing to apply for one of these scholarships should complete the regular application form for the Vienna Summer School and submit it to the office of the President, together with a personal letter outlining their academic and professional plans, reasons for wishing to participate in the program, courses they expect to take in Vienna, economic circumstances of their family and other pertinent data. The deadline for submission of application is February 1, 1962.

A Time For Everylhins

Chapel should remain atronf by keeping the aervlee wlely for 1U reliffloui Inspiration without announcement# or presentations attached to the end of It. ^ However, there are noteworthy events which occur a couple times a semeste^ which are short in duration, and include the whole student body. It Is difficult to draw the students together outside of the chapel service. With the recognition of these two premises, here la a solution. At the beginning of each semester the proper committee under the student council should set the dates for two days In which a full period In the middle of the morning would be devoted to the events proven nccessary. One day would be for the student council and those events which the council deems necessary to bring before the assembled student body. The other day would be for the traditionally established eventt of the presentation of the queen's court at May Day and homecoming, and the presentation of the new Blue Key members in the spring. During these two days in which the focus Is on these special events, there would be no chapel. The assemblies would be given credit as a chapel attendance. In this way. the meaning of Chapel would be strengthened by being kept for lia specific purpose of worship. Two days set aside for these Important events does not destroy one's religion but makes the chapel service for the balance of the time more meaningful. This Is the problem and a possible solution. Let us hope that all concerned understand the situation and act on the problem. —G. W.

Guest Editorials

Tickets Please The problem of meal tickets has long been a thorn in the side too many students, particularly the girls who do not go to all the meala and those who prefer to go home on the weekends; and the Idea that charging those who do not eat every meal In order that the meals they do eat can be made better, does not seem Justifiable, so here Is a suggestion. It seems that it would be possible to sell tickets, each of which would designate a different quantity of meals. These tickets could be made available to the students In two group forms: one group could be on a five day basis, and the other could be on a seven day basis, and each group could be divided into a two or three meal section. This would provide: The first group 1. A five day, two meal a day ticket for those who both go home on the weekends and do not care to eat breakfast 2. A five day, three meal a day ticket for those who go home but during the week would like to eat breakfast. The second group 1, A seven day, two meal a day ticket for those who do not go home but would not want to eat breakfast. 2. A seven day three meal a day ticket for those who do not go home and would like to eat breakfast all week long. Perhaps It Is true that Slater makes their money on the weekends and breakfasts, and perhaps It la true thai they can make the week day meals better on the money they save, but this does not Justify the faet that every week-day more than a hundred students have to pay for breakfasts they don't eat, and every weekend It amounts to dollars per student! This suggestion could lighten the burden of the needless spending if it were put into effect. —DAVID BROWER

Open For All It s not dilficult, these daya, to acquire the reputation of a pseudo-intellectual or an Intellectual snob, AU you have to do b wear a beard, smoke a pipe, be consistently articulate or mysteriously quiet, or permit yourself to become associated with campus arts. This is a situation which has made things difficult, in the past, for the staff of Opus, Hope's literary-art magazine.. It seems that editors and staff members of OPUS have generally come to be regarded as people who feel they have a monopoly on creativity at Hope. Regardless of whether such a reputation was ever earned by Opus people, this year's Opus staff has determined to do what it can to alter this image in the eyes and minds of Hope students. The staff has been reorganized around a plan designed to draw more people into the organization itself, and at the same time stimulate greater enthusiasm among the students in all classes, in order to attract more poetry, prose, art and music contributions. In place of the former system of an 'inherited'* editorship and an editor-appointed editorial board to screen contributions, a sevenmember editorial board has been set up, which was elected at a meeting to which all people Interested In an enterprise such as OPUS were Invited. This board then elected Its own editor, Judson Emerlck, to assume administrative responsibility. The Opus Editorial Board hopes that the new, more democratic system will encourage more student poets, writers, artists and composers to submit some of their work for possible publication in Opus, It also invites interested people to submit pieces of their work either to the board as a whole, or to individual members for comment and suggestions for revisions, which can then be taken care aUmateriSa^^ 8 8 V a c a t i o n ' ^ t i m e f o r t h e January 5 deadline tar The members of the OPUS editorial board Invite any pitspectlve contributors to OPUS to sit down with any board membeThe may choose, and discuss his work, —OPUS STAFF

U. S. Could Solve Problem by Bob Jaehnlg A recent meeting of the Hope International Relations C l u b featured a panel discussion on the "Berlin Crisis." Three students who had done research on the situation reviewed the history of the problem and gave the points of view of both East and West. As the meeting and the subsequent questlon-and-answer session proceeded, one Impression became increasingly clear: here is an artificial crisis, one that does not have to exist, and one that the United States COULD bring to a peaceful end tf our leaders so chose. Alongside of this realization arose the question: "Then why DON'T we end it?" History The Western posture in Berlin, the panelists brought out, rests solely on immediate post - war agreements made among the World War II European Allies, dividing Germany into four zones,, and symbolically, dividing the capital, located in the Russian zone, in the same manner. As disagreement arose between

the Russians and Western Allies, what we had hoped would be the eventual merger of all four parts into one country again, became instead the present schism between East and West Germany. Despite the hardening of feelings between what had become two big occupation zones, the West insisted on maintaining its sector of Berlin, and retained use of the 100-plus-mile-long corridor which connects the otherwise surrounded city with the rest of the Free World. The West demonstrated its determination to keep its East Germany toehold in the Berlin Airlift of 1948, when Russia acted to close off Berlin to the West. The Reds have threatened Western rights in Berlin several times since, but no second Airlift has been necessary. But time and technological progress have been sneaking up on Berlin. It formerly was merely a place where East-West ten-, sions would boil up briefly, in skirmishes between the Allied and Russian patrols w h i c h policed the city. But today it's the scene of a "squatters' rights"

OTHERS SPEAK To the Editor: Well, it's back into the old groove now, social fraternity-wise: the rush season is over, pledges are made, hell week is ending; only the formal induction remains. Before I begin let me make one thing clear that may indicate the experience upon which my judgments are based. I am a member of both a service and what may be considered a social fraternity, and a national honor group. I have had two roommates who have joined social fraternities at Hope. I know what it is to belong to a fraternity. I am not against a fraternity per se. The fraternity whose primary purpose is the teaching of noble ideals, or which dedicate itself to service beyond its members' personal pleasure-seeking, and at the same time satisfies its members' so-called social needs, may perform a vital function in whatever community it may find itself. Perhaps even the social fraternity serves a real function. My objection is to the week-long session of horseplay and camaraderie-inspired barbarities known as hell week, but most specifically as it is found on a so-called Christian campus such as Hope College, Naturally, it would be wrong to assume that all the students of such a school were Christian (although many do) and consequently expect Christian actions from them. But, I do not feel in error to expect Christian actions from those who call themselves Christians, and have even indicated an intention toward its ministry, Yet, these same people engage in hazing (let's be honest and call it what it really is), if not directly, in allowing or at least not openly objecting to i t What's wrong with hazing? The fraternity plaims it teaches humility and a sense of brotherhood. No matter what it really teaches, it is a clear witness of man degraded physically and spiritually to a barbaric level which is inconsistent in our present society, The paddle swattings — yes, and we bomb Hiroshima. The burlap underwear — yes, and the Germans persecute the Jews. Barf night — yes, and the Reds brainwash. The little odd jobs — yes, and slavery still exists. The comparisons are by no means conclusive nor are they meant to be, but I feel they are indicative of the lack of human dignity in the hazing plan The pledge says that it is not really so bad and that it is worth it (for the social prestige, the social security, the formal, or whatever he gains from it) in the long run. This may be all well and good to the pledge himself, but what about those who look at him? And if the pledge calls himself a Christian, what can the non-Christian think? It is difficult for me to accept Christianity as I see it manifest at Hope College, where at least part of its faculty, its administration, its college pastor, and its student body could not help being aware of the hazing situation, yet can not or do not stand against it. I will be convinced that this position is wrong when I am shown that hazing is consistent with the Christian life, I will listen to anyone who can do this. —THOMAS WOMBWELL

battle between two hostile giants, and those are atom-powered clubs they're waving. Notwithstanding the legal or historical rights of either party, it behooves the most intelligent and most humane of the two to swallow his aboriginal pride and put a stop to the feud before those things go off and hurt somebody. Proposition The proposition: The United States and its allies should get out of Berlin. Militarily Berlin is untenable. Our leaders talk bravely about the extent to which we shall "defend our rights" there, but military men aren't kidding themselves about their chances of hanging on to a city more than 100 miles behind Red lines. Realistically, whether we like It or not, the Reds are in the saddle in East Germany. And it's understandable that they would not like a U. S. garrison smack in the middle of their country. We would look with similar disfavor upon the establishment of Russian bases at, say, Detroit. We wouldn't regard THAT as much of an indication of peaceful intentions on the part of our visitors; we might even feel moved to eject them. Morale Did someone mention West German morale? Afraid they'll go Communist, maybe? Not long ago, a U. S. delegation was sent to Bonn to try to persuade West Germany's leaders to have their government undertake some of the cost of maintaining U. S. military forces there. Seems we were pouring so much money into Germany to maintain our garrisons that we were losing our gold supply here. Can they doubt our practical support? West Germany is practically the only place where there's not unemployment, but a manpower shortage. America regards a minimum of five million unemployed as a "normal" liability. How likely are people in an unemployment-iree nation, who remember their chronic economic ills of pre-Hitler and immediate postwar days, to hand over their booming industries to a government? Embarrassment To • be sure. West Berlin is gratifyingly embarrassing to the Communists, from our point of view, because of its economic strength. But so is the rest of West Germany, We don't have to maintain our private enterprise showcase on enemy territory at the risk of a nuclear war. ' As for guaranteeing the freedom of the people we have pledged to protect—offer them safe conduct out of Berlin to the West. Those who love their real estate better than their freedom can stay. It would make the Communists blush if thousands of East Germans who had been planning to bolt eventually, contrived means to join the West Berliners in the mass evacuation to the West. If we insisted on being spiteful about it» we could dismantle West Berlin industries to transport them further west. As for American investment in West Berlin, if our businessmen can afford to forfeit their Cuban interests so Castro can deliver the "Pearl of the Antilles^ to Khrushchev, they can afford to divest themselves of West Berlin interests for a much better reason. And as for that all-important propaganda effect, clever presentation of the United States' motive of a 44peace initiative" could pay propaganda dividends; the "peac^-loving" Soviet would be caught with his armor-plate trousers slipping and his dub held high in the air.


Graves Becomes New Home for OfF


Student Organizations Next Fall The hub of student activity at Hope should soon be the ground floor of Graves-Winants Hall. Says Student Council President Norm Kansfield, "Realizing the need for better facilities for student organizations, for centralization of student offices, for a meditation chapel, and for better lounge environment, the administration has carefully plan-

ned a beautiful, functional student center. This, he said, "will be a 24 hour a day building." Mr. Visscher estimates the cost of the remodeling at from $100125,000 and gives September 1, 1962 as the date of completion. The general contractor for the project is Mr. Rhine VanderMeulen.

Misuse of telephone credit devices is now a matter for state regulation. Through a survey by the Michigan Bell Telephone Company in a special field labeled "Misuse of Telephone facilities at Colleges and Universities in Michigan," the obvious violations by college students have now been recorded in an amendment to a state law. The telephone service has been bothered by students who have misused toll credit cards, coin telephones and third numbers. Formerly the system of prosecution was dependent on local police authorities and school officials. However the increasing severeness of the problem has moved the Bell Telephone Company to seek state action. Section 219a, 219b, 219c, additions to Act No. 328 of the Public Acts of 1931 have been the result. 219a, summarized, states that credit obtained or attempted by the use of "false, ficticious or counterfiet credit cards, credit numbers, telephone numbers or other credit devices" without authority is considered a misdemeanor. 219b concerns the "notice" given, expiration of such a card in relation to its use. 219c quoted states — "Any person who knowingly obtains or attempts to obtain, by use of any fraudulent scheme, device, means or method ' telegraph or telephone service or the transmission ol a message signal-orother communication by telephone o r t e l e g r a p h o r over telephone, telegraph or other communication facilities with intent ^ a v 0 l d P a y m e n t o f charges therefore is guilty of a misde-

I don't know, but she's been in there over an hour. CHI PHI SIGMA Dr. Elton Eenigenburg, Professor of Historical Theology at Western Seminary, spoke on religious cults at the literary meeting of the Arcadian Fraternity last Friday night. A humor sketch was given by Jud Emerick and Skip Watrous. Pledging activities this week have included group attendance Sunday morning at the Hope Reformed Church and Sunday night at Dunningville Reformed Church; the slave sale Monday night; a study period Tuesday; Alpha Phi Day, Air Raid Day, and the basketball game Wednesday; and grand inquisition Thursday. Quests will be held tonight and formal initiation tomorrow at Van Raalte's Restaurant in Zeeland.

The hosts for the affair were the parents of Bruce Ter Beek. After the dinner, the twelve new pledges returned to the house for the slave sale which officially opened Hell Week. During the week, actives enjoyed free cigarettes and the privileges of dominating the slaves. Tonight the "dogs" will be entertained with an informal dinner and initiation, the climax of Hell Week. The pledges are Bill Brass, Pete Paulson, Ron Hibbelink, Bob Schleit, Dave Lewis, Neil De Boer, Dirk De Velder, Larry Tiefsma, Jim De Vries, Lee Mager, Doug Taxapeus, and Harold Wise.

And Scholarship One hundred and forty - one college students gained valuable on-the-job experience last summer under a program sponsored by the Newspaper Fund to stimulate interest in journalism. More than 320 applications from 56 colleges and universities were received. The Newspaper Fund then directed students to newspapers which were willing to employ trainees for the summer months. hhHHH

Taking part in this project, which is in its second year, were Hope College students. Bob Jaehnig and Merwyn Scholten.

Two pledges guard Fraternal house.

The Fund, supported by grants from The Wall Street Journal, awarded each accepted applicant a $500 scholarship toward his next year's college expenses upon successful completion of the summer's work.

n L n ATHLETE'S FEAT IYU by Bob Kreonen Hope will entertain Adrian College tomorrow night in Hope's first MIAA conference game of the 1961-62 season. Last year the Dutch split a pair of games with the Bulldogs, winning 87-72 in the first game here in Holland and losing the return match at Adrian, 64-70. Last year Adrian finished second in the MIAA with an 8-4 record while Hope tied for third with a 7-5 mark. Adrian has already lost one conference game this year, a 75-66 setback at the hands of Olivet. (Incidentally, this victory by Olivet broke their 46 game losing streak, marking their first win since the 1958-59 season. Olivet would have established a national collegiate record with one more loss.) Adrian was originally thought to be one of the better teams in the MIAA this year; however, the loss of several lettermen through scholastic ineligibility, coupled with the failure of Vince Giles to return to school this fall could ruin the Bulldogs. Giles was the MIAA's Most Valuable Player and second leading scorer last year, and his loss will undoubtedly be felt by Adrian.

Hope Wins Opening Home Game; Trounces Wheaton In 79-63 Victory by Dave Bach Making their first home appearance of the 1961-62 basketball season, Hope College cagers came from behind to beat Wheaton, 63-79, last Wednesday night at the Civic Center. The victory was Hope's first this year after losing by one point to both Concordia Teachers College and Carroll College last weekend. Wheaton's loss to Hope was their first defeat after posting two initial wins for the season.

The crowd, comprised mostly of fraternity men and perennial Hope supporters, saw Wheaton set a lightening fast pace, scoring 13 quick points in the early minutes of the game. After Hope's defence adjusted to Wheaton's variation of the weave and pass pattern, the Dutchmen began slowly catching up to Wheaton's lead—13-6, 15-10, 1714. Just when the Dutchmen seemed within reach, Wheaton, lead by the sensational ability of

If there are any skeptics who are wondering how good Hope's basketball team is this year, Wednesday night's victory over highly rated Wheaton should disspell any doubts or fears. As anyone who witnessed Wednesday's game can testify, this is a really good basketball team that should get better with every game. Although it is difficult to say how Hope will stack up against the other teams in the MIAA, it is probably safe to say that beating Wheaton (rated 14th in the first national poll) will mark Hope as a team to be reckoned with within the conference. Only time will tell how Hope will fair against the tough competition that they have scheduled this year; but after two successive one point defeats, a sixteen point victory was certainly most welcome.

Basketball Squad Drops Two Road Games By One Point This was the first game of the season for the Dutch and a tough one to lose. The score was tied at halftime, 42-42, and the one extra point Concordia scored in the second half made the difference. . a i i

^ Question: What lies beyond Fairbanks Avenue besides pull practice holes? Answer: Not the old Van Raalte mansion any Ionger, - but Hope College's new athletic field, including baseball and Softball fields, a 440 - yd. track, and a football field. Adjacent to several acres already owned by the college, about eight acres were acquired in October, 1960 as a site for the atheletic lay-out. In October of 1961, completion of an eight-lane rubber-asphalt track, an updated hard - surface t r a c k , gave Hope one of the best tracks in Western Michigan, according to Gordon Brewer, athletic director, Since then, a four inch water line has been laid for the sprinkling systems, and black dirt spread .for Softball and a football field lying north and west of the track. Seeding of these fields is also completed. Beginning this spring, the new area will bear the brunt of college athletics and facUitate men's physical education courses. Depending on the weather for the seeding, the softball layout will also be in use by next season. Projected plans of the Athletic Department designate Carnegie gym and adjoining practice field for women s use only. The Van Raalte field will eventually be the center of men's physical education. The former furniture store at the south end of the new field will become a Hope locker room. The time will come when Hope football fans will approach those autumn games through a woodsy path on the bank of a little creek which runs through the property. Both newly seeded fields and the track lie east of this creek, Hope athletes, anticipating full use of the field this coming baseball season, hope '62 will be a good year for grass.

The Flying Dutchmen played good basketball in the opening game of the season. At the free throw line, they made 20 of 22 attempts for 91% average, T h e to

P scorers for the Dutch were Jim Vander Hill and Ron Venhuizen with 19 points each. A1 Herman scored 20 points to take high point honors for Concordia.

senior guard Roger Johnson, put cn another burst of speed, outrebounding and outpassing Hope all over the court. When Wheaton had built up the score 2616, Hope took a time out. Ron Te Beest, the Dutchmen's only substitute of the game, came in for Gary Nederveld at this time Glenn Van Wieren scored on a pair of free throws for Hope after the time out, cutting down Wheaton's advantage 36-27. In a pile-up for the ball that occurred after the free throw, a slight rhubarb resulted because a Wheaton player continued to sit. on Hope's captain Ekdal Buys. After this Hope just came alive. Van Wieren, then Buys, Te Beest, Venhuizen, Vander Hill, and Van Wieren again. Nederveld, back in the game for Te Beest during the second half, got things off well for Hope by pumping in 4 quick points. Johnson, Wheaton's energetic playmaker, tried to rekindle his teammates' first quarter fire by executing some fine dribbling manuevers—but failed. Hope's Nederveld, VanderHill, Venhuizen and Buys hit at will.. Besides scoring. Buys' rebounding was terrific as he grabbed 5 successive balls, both offensively and defensively. He cut the score down to 53-50 with 13:03 left in the game. Wheaton took a timeout. When they brought the ball back into action they tried a semi-stall weave pattern offensively which Hope's Vander Hill dramatically broke up by leaping high into the air to intercept a Wheaton pass. As Vander Hill brought the ball down court he was fouled. Missing the first, but making the second, Vander Hill left Wheaton with only a one point advantage, 55-54. After another Hope steal. Van Wieren tipped in the ball after it rolled off the rim to give Hope a 55-56 lead. Van Wieren scored again to stretch Hopers lead 5558 with 8:24 to go. Hope's rebounding was sensational at this point. Buys, Vander Hill, and Nederveld came away with the ball after bone-crushing contact under the boards. After an exchange of points, Hope lead by 51-61. Wheaton's Johnson, Peterson, and Gibson now hit, narrowing Hope's lead 60-62. Defensively, Nederveld rebounded beautifully, taking the brunt of flying elbows, but hanging onto the ball. Fouled, Gary put in two free throws opening Hope's lead 62-68 with 2:51 left. Venhuizen, fouled by Wheaton's Dan Parten, scored on another pair of charity shots. With 1:30 to go in the fourth quarter, Hope took a time out with instructions to stall. Trying to get the ball, Wheaton committed 8 fouls in one and a half minutes. Hope, taking advantage of the situation, went ahead 7663 with 0:14 left to play. Climaxing the game, Vander Hill stole the ball from Wheaton, dribbled down the floor, and dunked the basketball just before time ran out. Fouled, Vander Hill added another point to Hope's total, making the final score 63-79.
