THOMAS' BASKET IN FINAL MOMENT DEFEATS JUNIOR Hope Passing Is Ragged at Times, But Shows Possibilities; Fouls Numerous

POPPINK PACES HOPE A one-h^hded side court shot by Thomas,.'Sophomore forward, that split the meshes in the closing seconds of play enabled Hope college to eke out a 29-28 victory over Muskegon junior in the opening f r a y of the '35-'36 season. It was a thrilling see-saw battle with the lead changing hands throughout the entire second frame. The Dutchmen stepped out to an early lead but led by Dyer, Muskegon forward, the Jaysees put on an exhibition of sharp shooting that gave them a 17-14 lead at the intermission. The Blue and Orange (juintet found the range in the second half and pulled abreast of the Muskegon team near the end of the game. Trailing by one point with only seconds to go, Thomas put the finishing touches to the game by his sensational goal. The game was a typical opening tilt replete with fouls and inaccurate shooting, yet both teams i hcwed spurts of mid-season form. Although ragged at times, the passing of the Hope team gave promise of a smooth offense and f a s t breaking game. Dyer, Muskegon forward was high scorer garnering a total of 15 points. Poppink, lanky center, paced the victors with 11 points closely followed by Thomas who collected five goals. In the preliminary game the Freshman triumphed over the Cosmopolitans by the score of 3918. Marcus shone for the frosh with 12 points and Martin led the Cosmos with 7.

LIFT BAN ON FROSH SPORTS A f t e r a three-year ban on frosh athletics, the M. I. A. A. board of athletics has passed a rule allowing freshmen to compete with other schools in all branches of sport. The frosh have been granted permission to play six basketball games with other college quintets and independent teams outside of t h e conference squads. This policy will be an added inducement for freshmen to come out and make an athletic team. EIGHT TEAMS TO COMPETE IN FRATERNITY C O N F E R E N C E Rpresentatives from the various fraternities met last Monday and drew up extensive plans for the ipening of the Inter-fraternity league Monday evening, December IG. The Freshmen, although they will be competing with various teams outside of the college, will be represented in the league. An independent team has been organized to fill out the list and make it an eight team league. The league will be composed of the usual five fraternity teams, two frosh teams and the Independents. All games will be played on Monday nights from 7 to 10 o'clock. Three games will be played each night at intervals of one hour. The gym will be open to spectators as usual. The championship Cosmos team of last year will stack up against the Fraters, rurjner up to the Cosmos for the championship last year, in the opening tussle of the year Monday night. The league race is expected to be a nip-and-tuck affair this season due to the well-balanced teams of practically equal strength which compose it. The Cosmos, with a veteran team, are favored to cop the coveted bunting again this year.

New Regulations Govern Awarding of Hope Letters At a recent meeting of the Hope Board of Athletics, new regulations were formulated and passed regarding the awarding of letters and sweaters to those who have earned them. In the f u t u r e there will be no m a j o r or m i n o r sports; all athletics will be on an equal basis. Letters will be awarded only upon the recommendation of the faculty committee of athletics. Awards Vary A suitable sweater will be awarded to each player the first year he wins a varsity letter. For football the type of sweater will be a shaker-knit pull-over, navy blue in color. For basketball, a shakerknit coat sweater, burnt orange in color. For tennis, track, and golf, a jersey knit coat sweater. The letters will be awarded on the following basis; football, any man who has played 100 minutes in five-eighths of the games scheduled, of which three games are in the M. I. A. A. basketball; any man who has played 200 minutes in five-eighths of the games scheduled of which six shall be in the M. 1. A. A. t r a c k ; any man who has won one point in the M. I. A. A. field day meets, or eight points in any dual conference meets. Tennis, any man who has won one point in the M. I. A. A. field meet or who has played in threefourths of all t h e scheduled matches; golf, any member of a championship field day meet, or who has played in three-fourths of the scheduled matches. Blankets will be awarded to seniors when financially possible, who have won their varsity letter in their senior year. 20 To Receive "H" Exactly 20 members of this year's varsity football team will receive their letters and sweaters at the last chapel service before the Christmas recess.

Dutchmen Meet Strong Non-Conference Foes

-BY With one victory under their belts, the Hope quintet prepared f o r a strenuous siege of non-conference foes. F o u r more games remain before t h e ' D u t c h tangle in their first conference scrap with Hillsdale. Two games with Ferris and lone games with Western State and Ypsilanti will prove to be ample tests f o r the M. I. A. A. school. Ferris has a strong team again, composed of six veterans and flashy new men. The Bulldogs have been greatly strengthened by the return of Freeman, s t a r of two years ago, and the addition of Burns, who starred at Grand Rapids South in his prep days. The team is short but extremely f a s t and uses the quick break to its advantage. Hope takes on Ferris this Thursday at the Armory and travels to Big Rapids for a return game Jan. 6. Western state, Hope's second opponent, ranks as one of the best teams in the country and, as the game is to be played on the spacious court of Western, Hope's main object will be to keep the score down as low as possible. On Jan. 3 Hope will entertain Ypsilanti at the home court. The Ypsi game always stands out as one of the best games of the year and another great battle is expected this season. Ypsi has suffered one defeat and t h a t at the hands of the University of Michigan. They are: Captain Heeringa, Vander Velde, De Weerd, Kooiman, Leetsma, Gross, Mahan, Buteyn, Van Tatenhove, Tysse, Buys, Robbert, Klomparens, Jappinga, Lokand Ver Schure. The following freshmen w i l l receive numerals for football: Anderson, Boyink, Brooking, Leetsma, Marcus, Maxam, Vander Hill, Wishmeier, De Groot, Heneveld, Hop, Scheerhorn, Vanden Berg, Van Wyk, Weidner, and Van Kley. A gold football will be awarded to the captain of the varsity and one to the man who has shown the best spirit on the ball club, Don Kooiman.

BASKETBALL RACE BITTER DOG FIGHT THIS YEAR—HINGA Albion and Hillsdale Favored; All Teams Are Conceded Chance at Title

HOPE DARK HORSE? " I t ' s going to be a dog fight from s t a r t to finish!" That is what Coach Hinga thinks of the '35-'36 basketball campaign in the M.I.A.A. The Hope mentor continued by picking Hillsdale or Albion as the favorite to cop the championship, but he predicted it to be one of the toughest races in the history of the conference, with the winner suffering a t least three defeats. Champs May Repeat A review of the material of the colleges proves Hinga's predictions to be more than probable. An a r r a y of veterans on all the M.I.A.A. school quintets promises a battle from s t a r t to finish. Hillsdale, last year's champions, built around Stanich, presents a team t h a t appears to be as strong as the aggregation of last season. Three of the members are well above six feet. The one fact t h a t may eliminate Hillsdale f r o m repeating is t h a t three of the regulars are sophomores and, although they all are outstanding players, they are lacking in experience. Hillsdale has played one game and was defeated by Adrian in a close game, but as the latter is exceptionally strong, little is shown by the defeat. Kroeze Bolsters Albion

Albion, the other favorite, is as formidable as the team that last year lost to Hillsdale in the championship playoff. Presenting four veterans and several sophomore stars, the Methodists are looking for an M.I.A.A. championship. These hopes are by no means dimmed by the addition of Kroeze, who played with Grand Rapids Junior college last season. The tall center, who was rated as the best pivot man in the Junior colleges of the state, connected for 11 points in Albion's opening game against Notre Dame. Albion has already suffered two defeats but these were a t the hands of two national ranking teams, Notre Dame and Michigan State. Olivet, despite the numerous rumors of ineligibility of Comet stars, should have anything but a weak team. F e a t u r i n g Arthurs, brilliant forward, Herbert and Heynes, star of last year's campaign, the Comets can be counted upon to furnish plenty of opposition. Kalamazoo, who finished in a tie with Hope last year, has a nucleus WILL BELITTLES DEGREES of four veterans around which to build.

Lester Vanden Berg of Central Lake, Michigan, won second place in the Sears, Roebuck & Co. amateur hour contest over a WOOD broadcast. Placing in the contest wins a cash prize of five dollars for young Vanden Berg, and an opportunity to try out in the semi-finals, which will be held next spring when the present run of Sears, Roebuck & Co. amateur programs is completed. Winning also netted the baritone singer a featured part in the regular program of the Grand Rapids Peninsular club Monday evening, November 25. Vanden Berg hitch-hiked to Grand Rapids from the Emersonian house, where he stays while attending college, and then back again to ask his Emersonian pals how "it sounded over the air." Vanden Berg is known as the "Singing-hayseed" a r o u n d the house. He is in his sophomore year at college.

Amusing features were Meller Drammer, in charge of Miss Marjorie Moody, and impromptu falling on the floor by various sophomores. Miss Norma Claus started the general downfall by striking Jack Leenhouts just below the knees, bringing him down gracefully on Andy Nyboer. Soon a f t e r w a r d Miss June Pomp obligingly tried to butt her head through the brick wall to avoid collision with another skater.

Provisions are being made in the event of any rebellious or hysterical girl — although we wonder if that is necessary in Voorhees hall. At any rate, it is rumored that Marshal Goehner has a gag and ropes concealed in her room. Thus, in anticipation of any such calamity as imagined above, the inmates of Voorhees hall need f e a r nothing. Under fearless, composed leadership all will be clear sailing, or rather, clear "chuting."

It is considered likely, however, that the mass of American students, and particularly, of course, student athletes, are in f a v o r of participation. Prevailing opinion is that those groups opposed to U.S. entrance are the most articulate.

'TThe agitators f o r withdrawl are supported in their denouncement of Nazi despotism in sports as well as politics," says the Revealille, "by the narrow requirements imposed f o r membership on the German teams. According to some reports, Negroes, Catholics, and Jews are barred and some Protestants excluded under the ruling that all German Olympic athletes must be Nazi club members. The question isn't so clear-cut as all that, says The Rice Thresher, Rice Institute, Houston, Tex., but lies between diplomacy and ideals. "If the American athletes are to adhere strickly to their belief in t r u e sportsmanship,^ we don't see any other move but to withdraw. But t h a t is where the diplomatic side enters. Suppose we did t h a t ? Such a stand would have a definite bearing both on international and domestic political and social harmony.
