.rr.;

Plan for Christmas Meeting Cheerful, gay, and blithe were the girls of the S. G. A. last Wednesday evening, when they met at Ruth Miller's home. Oh yes, they are always cheerful but that night they were more than cheerful. Merry Smiles and Happy Grins were especially welcome. What did they do? We'll never tell (except to say that Mabel and Winnie love to work f o r other people). Oh, you should have met ths eats committee! Perfectly marvelous feed! In the din of merry chatter which followed, plans were discussed for the New Year and especially for the next meeting when the S. G. A. will be most happy to meet Santa Claus.

That Kolland expects the Hope College 4 Y" man to be a leader in religious and social affairs in the community, was made very clear to the men on Tuesday night. Speaking on the topic,"WhatHolland expects from the " Y " man", Mr. Geerlings said that a self-centered man could not be - / a successful leader. "We need men ^ who are amiable, who are willing to eo into the highways and byways of • life." This earnest talk proved to be very ' insp rational to the audience and the splendid attention with which the large audience greeted the speaker, must have proved an inspiration to Connecticut Aggies have a system Mr. Geerlings. It was undoubtedly in which no class excuses are excused, one of the most interesting meetings but a bonus in added credit is given of the year. f o r a perfect attendance record.

PREJUDICE According to the Anchor of last week, one of the abominations of public opinion is its tendency t o extremes. To this we would like to add t h a t the tendency of people to form opinions based on mere fiction is equally abominable. In spite of t h e fact that men usually claim to be sane and reasonable, when onc2 they have formed an opinion it is next to impossible to c h a n g j their s e n t i m e n t ; and if t h a t opinion is formed while they are looking t h r o u g h 'jaundiced peepers', which is usually the case, it is very often an unfavorable opinion t h a t results. T h a t is the n a t u r e of prejudice—always u n f a i r ; usually unfavorable. T h u s it becomes t h e worst enemy of t r u e criticism; for, as soon as criticism of an unfavorable n a t u r e is expressed, there is a great danger t h a t it is based on a prejudiced opinion. A critic must indeed be very careful t h a t t h e f a c t s are overwhelmingly in favor of his opinion. Prejudice has stolen away many a man's reputation and good n a m e and dragged him down to t h e level of his would-be 'critics.' N O ! Never so low as t h a t ; for those who were t h e cause of his fall were meaner and more contemptible than a n y t h i n g imaginable. But there is a great difference between a biased opinion and real, honest criticism t h a t is based on f a c t ; and t h e fact t h a t criticism is offered in one case and not in another where it m a y he equally applicable does not necessarily indicate t h a t it was prejudiced. It may be t h a t t h e f a c t s in the first case are more in evidence than in the other. There is also t h e f a c t to consider t h a t if the same opinion is formed by a different class of people year a f t e r year, and if the f a c t s are favorable to t h a t opinion, t h e r e is likely to be more t r u t h than prejudice in the criticism. Learn to distinguish between biased opinion and honest criticism so t h a t if you see or hear an opinion expressed it m a y not be misinterpreted to the detriment of both the critic and t h e object of his criticism.

Student Fomm \ R U S H I N G MOVIES

I hope I am mistaken, but I have a feeling that what I have to say in this article will be very unpopular. Nevertheless I make no apology. What I have to say has absolutely nothing at all to do with the question of whether a Christian has a right to go to the movie, but it does have a great deal to do with the question of whether or not Christian Hope College students have the right to play with and entirely ignore the opinion and feelings of the constituency of the College. Those who support the institution through occasional gifts and in other ways, are bound up with the vital interests of the institution—they are a very real part of it. Now it is a fact that they will not and cannot approve of such action as Hope College students manifested last Thursday night, when they rushed the Colonial Theatre. The longer I .think upon the abuses, evils, and problems in our country today, the more convinced I am of the f a c t that the majority of these wrongs exist only because of the lack of a social consciousness. This truth can be applied to almost every wrong in our social life today—also right here in our own institution. I am quite convinced of the fact that there would be no quibbling over an Honor C o d e no attempt on the part of the student body to free themselves of the burden of responsibility they have toward one another, if we realized that we are just one great big family—a social group, and as such not one of us "lives unto himself." This movie rushing affair may have been all right in itself. By that 1 mean that possibly it didn't harm the person who saw the picture, and it may not have hurt the business of the particular theatre either. In fact, it may have been an advertisement for it. Yet I do believe that we, as Hope College students, openly declared by such action,—mob action it was—that we didn't give a "rap" what the towns-people and the supporters of the institution thought and felt. Surely if it can be brought about in no other way, it ought to be branded into our consciousness as students of Hope College, that we cannot always do just exactly as we please. And why not? Well, here: Last year the societies also rushed the threatre—in fact, it is done every year, or twice every year. I was told then, that on the following day, a man who had been a quite liberal donor to the institution, declared that because Hope College students could seemingly behave themselves in no better fashion than that, from then on he wouldn't give another "penny" to Hope College. Do you see? For reasons of this kind we cannot, absolutely cannot, always do as we would like. Think it over, fellow students. Remember, we are living in a social world. Nearly everything we do or say has a direct or indirect influence upon the social group of which each of us is a part. We are not isolated creatures, but the very nature of our existence calls us to take into consideration what the effect of our own personality upon society will be— good or evil. Are we, as so-called Christian students of Hope, going to act in such a way as to leave the inevitable impression for the friends of the institution to infer, that we are a "bunch of rowdies"; that we allow ourselves to he ruled by mob law; and that we care nothing whatever for the name, tradition, and ideals of the institution which they founded, and for which possibly they have dedicated their lives? Think it over. —L. D. M.
