By Carol Houghtaling The first p a r t of stay in Europe was spent on the bus traveling f r o m town to town and country to country. When we got off the ship in Le Havre, France, there was a new maroon and yellow Mercedes bus, which was to be "our home" f o r the next sixteen days, waiting f o r us. A f t e r much s t r u g g l i n g and pushing, our luggage w a s packed into place and we were off through the countryside to Paris.

"The Messiah" <n These three weeks immediately preceding the anniversary of J e s u s ' birth will be marked by literally hundreds of performances of Handel's masterpiece, the "Messiah," both in this country and abroad. No other m a j o r musical composition has been performed so frequently, by so many diverse groups, under so many varying circumstances, and is so loved and respected as this musical setting of Our Lord's Life. Peopl who profess little knowledge or affection f o r so-called "classic music eagerly await the two or three-hour rendition of solos and choruses comprising this oratorio, written by an eighteenth-century German who was educated in Italy and attained his remarkable success as the personal composer to England's king. Indeed, we are infinitely more f a m i l i a r with the "Messiah" today t h a n we are with Handel's m a n y excellent operas, other oratorios, orchestral works — and certainly with the a t t a i n m e n t s of George I and George II, his patrons. Here, a t Hope College, on the evening of December seventeenth, almost a q u a r t e r of the student body will join forces with f o u r guest soloists in presenting the twenty-ninth consecutive performance of the "Messiah." Many seniors will be singing or playing in the orchestra f o r the f o u r t h time, many others will be a p a r t of t h e audience an equal number of times, and many townspeople will count their attendance in the tens or twenties. To sum up, a g r e a t many people a r e vitally interested in hearing and participating in a work over two hundred years old, written in a religious f e r v o r and fever in the amazingly brief time of three weeks. W h y ? Why spend many hours in planning, rehearsing, corresponding, worrying, a d j u s t i n g and r e a d j u s t i n g — when it would be infinitely easier to play a tape recording or listen to one of the many broadcast performances? Tradition alone would be a poor reason, f o r tradition is often the excuse of the lazy man or the "easy way out," since the pattern has been set. Our reasons must go beyond tradition; they must be varied and they must be sound. A college must be a leading force in the community in which it is located. It is uniquely equipped f o r this purpose because it contains the adventuresome, questing spirit of youth tempered with the guidance of knowledge and wisdom. Culturally, this force may be expressed in bringing new ideas to light; it can also be expressed by endeavoring to do better that which is valuable and cherished, and the "Messiah" belongs in this category. The "Messiah" is admittedly musically difficult, but its diffeculties are minimized by the spirit of eagerness with which it is approached and by the corps of " v e t e r a n s " who have performed it the year before. Perhaps, however, the best justification can be found with those actively participating. College s t u d e n t s often find too little time to indulge in a g r e a t cultural experience. In the "Messiah" such an experience that may well be the only one of its kind in a lifetime and one that can be eternally rewarding. Finally, when we h e a r the glorious f a i t h expressed in " I Know T h a t My Redeemer Liveth" and the concluding exaltation of "Hallel u j a h ! " " F o r t h e Lord God Omnipotent Reigneth!" we are t h a t much closer to the true spirit of our faith and the oneness t h a t springs f r o m , its expression. The tradition of the "Messiah" has been maintained, and rightly so. —Robert W. Cavanaugh

Pavlovic's pride and joy were two birds, ^ Peter and Hansie, and as she worked in her tiny kitchen she would talk to them as though they were her children. Gerhard was a little shy in the midst of four American girls, but as time passed we came to know him better. He spent m a n y hours listening to American pop tunes on his radio and playing his harmonica, both which got on his mother's nerves, or so she claimed. Gerhard spoke very good English and when his mother had difficulty in making us understand a German expression, he was called in to e r a s e the language barrier. One afternoon Gerhard took u s on a guided tour through the l a r g e a r t history museum in Vienna. His knowledge of a r t exceeded t h a t of the regularly employed guide, although his job was only t h a t of guard in the museum. So the days passed and all too quickly. Every minute w a s a busy one as we studied German, history, and music u n d e r A u s t r i a n professors, attended concerts, visited museums, attended receptions, and we became caught up in the atmosphere found only in Vienna. We will remember the landmarks, and the good times, but most of all our Austrian friends. It w a s with sadness in our h e a r t s t h a t we bid farewell to them and boarded the train f o r Switzerland. Since that time the realization has come to us t h a t we did not spend as much time as we should have in getting to know the Pavlovic's; b u t each of us believes t h a t somehow we will visit them again in t h e not too distant f u t u r e .

The next country we toured was Holland, with a t r i p to the famed ZuiderZee. We also spent a day at the Phillips Company, comparable to our own General Electric, where we were treated with the utmost hospitality. From Holland, we went to Germany and started on the last leg of the t r i p toward Vienna. One of our stops was in Rottenburg, where we were received by the Mayor with a special reception and where we, being loyal Americans, celebrated the Fourth of July with our own special fireworks. W e will never f o r g e t the trip down the Rhine which w a s so different than we had ever seen here in the U.S. Late one afternoon, we reached the Vienna Woods and got our first sight of Vienna, lying below us. We were glad to be in Vienna but sorry t h a t our trip by bus was over. Traveling by bus had been so much f u n and we had seen so much. By that time our g r o u p had become one g r e a t big happy family. We now were separated and did not see so much of each other because our "homes" in Vienna were spread all over the city. It is amazing how well the t r i p was planned and how much we did in sixteen short days.

The c o l l e g e ' s I n t e r f r a t e r n i t y Council inaugurated the automatic matching system so t h a t those who have not mnde a f r a t e r n i t y will be spared the disappointment of being left in a back room while others are asked to become pledges. Some 500 sophomores, juniors, and seniors participated in this year's oneweek rush period. A f t e r f o u r days of intense rushing, during which rushees visit the various f r a t e r n i t y houses, f r a t e r n i ties prepare preference lists indicating those men they would like to pledge. Rushees, in t u r n , are asked to fill out cards indicating their preference in f r a t e r n i t i e s . F r o m this point punch cards and mechanical sorters take over to match the lists.



Rushees, f r a t e r n i t i e s and the college administration are enthusiastic about the system. Coleman P. Colla, a senior f r o m Buffalo, N. Y., worked the system out with Professor John G. Kemeny, chairman of D a r t m o u t h ' s mathematics department.

The Hope College Dutchmen increased their record in MIAA play to two wins and no losses by soundly trouncing the Alma Scots on the losers' court 82-61. Hope displayed magnificent rebounding power, a strong man-to-man defense, and great scoring to outclass Alma all the way. Hope built up a 44-29 lead in the first half, and at one time in the g a m e moved out to a twentyfive point lead. As the g a m e neared its closing stages, all of the substitutes saw action and performed well. Buursma's Defensive Outstanding In addition to the usual stellar defensive play of Benes and Ritsema, J u n Buursma did an excellent job in holding the Scots all-MIAA guard and scoring leader George Carter from making a basket until the game was on ice f o r Hope.


Benes topped Hope's scoring parade with 24 points on eleven buckets and two f r e e throws. Ritsema added 15, Vanderhille 12, Buursma 10, and Beernink 10. Coach Russ De Vette owes a g r e a t deal of the team's success so f a r to the bench s t r e n g t h . Up to now he has been able to substitute frely without weakening the t e a m .

Hope College's basketball five opened their 1957-58 season last Wednesday a t the Civic Center by dropping the Albion Britons by a score of 77-66, in an MIAA contest. Last year Hope and Albion tied f o r the league championship, each finishing the conference season with ten victories and f o u r losses. The Dutch took a few minutes to click but once they got u-ider way, they went in f r o n t to stay. At the end of the first quarter, Hope had marched out to a 16-9 advantage. They increased the margin to 35-24 at halftime. Benes, Ritsema Control Boards 6'1()" Paul Benes at the pivot and 6'5" forward Ray Ritsema controlled the boards f o r the Dutch, with Ritsema especially adept at s t a r t i n g the f a s t break. Sophomore guard Warren Vanderhill hit consistently f r o m the outside with j u m p shots and sets. Vanderhill and Benes were chosen to the allMIAA first team, while Ritsema won a spot on the second team. Vriesman, Beernink Impressive Coach Russ De Vette has a pair of valuable replacements in Wayne Vriesman and Darryl Beernink. Vriesman, a 6'3" f o r w a r d , a t r a n s f e r f r o m Muskegon Junior College, tallied ten points. Beernink is a 5'10" junior t r a n s f e r f r o m Northwestern Junior College who fills in a t guard. He scored seven f o r the Dutch. Hope had pulled out to a 71-54 lead with f o u r minutes remaining when the substitutes went in to finish the game. They succeeded in keeping the Britons in tow. The final score read Hope 77, Albion 66. Albion handled the ball well throughout the game, but their team lacks the scoring punch it had last year. All-MIAA choices John H a n n e t t and George Vivlamore were lost t h r o u g h g r a d u a tion. The brightest light in the Albion offense was Conrad Stover, their 6'6" sophomore center. Stover maneuvered well and led t h e Britons with 20 points. W a r r e n Vanderhill sank nine field goals and added three charity tosses f o r twenty-one points to top the Dutch scorers. Benes scored sixteen, Ritsma thirteen, and Vriesm a n ten.
