Annual 'Messiah' Production Offers Stirring Performance Last n i g h t the voices of two hundred s t u d e n t s chorused the imm o r t a l s t r a i n s of George F r e d e r i c k Handel's " T h e Messiah" in a stirring p e r f o r m a n c e at t h e Hope College Memorial Chapel. Soloists f o r t h i s year, under the baton of Dr. Robert W. C a v a n a u g h , were Maude Nosier, s o p r a n o , Ruth Slater, cont r a l t o , William Miller, tenor, and J o h n Macdonald, bass. " T h e Messiah", which is celeb r a t i n g its two hundred t w e l f t h y e a r of p o p u l a r i t y since it was w r i t t e n by German born George Handel, required only t w e n t y - t h r e e

EDITOR'S DESK Don't Become A Statistic ! T o m o r r o w e i g h t hundred s t u d e n t s will be dismissed f r o m Hope f o r the C h r i s t m a s recess. Many of t h e s e will drive over a hundred miles to reach t h e i r homes. Some will r e t u r n over the s a m e route in J a n u a r y . Some m a y not live to r e t u r n . F o r of the 38,300 motor vehicle f a t a l i t i e s l a s t y e a r in t h e nation, 4.95%, or 1,896, were in Michigan. In t h e Holland a r e a in t h e last two y e a r s six people w e r e killed out of 735 f a t a l i t i e s in small t o w n s across the nation. This is one of the h i g h e s t r a t e s recorded. Boiled down to common t e r m s , t h i s m e a n s five people a day die in Michigan in t r a f f i c accidents. And d u r i n g the two or t h r e e d a y s Hope s t u d e n t s a r e t r a v e l i n g , it is v e r y possible t h a t t h e y will be a m o n g the daily toll. F a r f r o m being idle speculation, t h e s e s t a t i s t i c s , c o m p u t e d by the National S a f e t y Council, a r e based on i n s u r a n c e and d r i v e r s ' registration reports. S t u d e n t s d r i v i n g to the E a s t e r n S t a t e s will have t h e law of a v e r a g e s in t h e i r f a v o r , according to the S a f e t y Council. B u t t r a v e l e r s to t h e West or South will he crossing s t a t e s with high p e r c e n t a g e s of f a t a l i t i e s , such a s Illinois, Indiana, and K e n t u c k y . It is a n a t u r a l tendency to be optimistic and depend on r e s t i n g on the credit side of t h e ledger in a n y c o m p u t a t i o n of f a c t s . And undoubtedly such t h o u g h t s were riding with five H o p e s t u d e n t s two y e a r s a g o when they s m a s h e d head-on into an oncoming car, and in a second closed the book in t h e red. In a m o m e n t , t h e y become j u s t s t a t i s t i c s in a ledger. Last S p r i n g two Hope s t u d e n t s w e r e r e t u r n i n g to the c a m p u s to a t t e n d g r a d u a t i o n ceremonies the following d a y . They w e r e t h i n k i n g , living h u m a n s one moment, and figures in a book the next. A blinding flash and they w e r e j u s t n u m e r a l s to be counted, tallied, and published. In my hand, a s I write this, I have t h e tally of 38,300 people who splashed t h e i r blood and smashed t h e i r b r a i n s on h i g h w a y s across the United States. It is an i n t e r e s t i n g p a m p h l e t with clever g r a p h s and cartoons, the b r i g h t obituary of t h o u s a n d s . Personally I don't care to see a n y of my f r i e n d s and c l a s s m a t e s in next y e a r ' s edition. Drive c a r e f u l l y and don't become a s t a t i s t i c !

All This Controversy . . . and More During recent weeks news articles, opinionated columns, and "letters-to-the-editor" in this newspaper have raised considerable controversy on our campus. The specific issues refer to the attitudes to be taken towards certain (disputed) sociological mores of our college community. Student opinion has been expressed in a number of shades from the ultra-conservative to the liberal. In some cases the student voice has expressed "solutions" that were without the realm of reality on our campus. In other instances this voice has become quite dogmatic, and seemingly without respect for other views. To meet the questions raised requires much more than a simple "aye" or "nay" ballot, by any minority group, or mere legislation. In meeting these problems there is no one "true" answer, rather any solution must be a developed synthesis of social climate and realistic approach. It is believed that when a student becomes part of Hope College his basic attitudes have been established, the result of his past association with his home, church, and environment. Further, it is supposed — or hoped — that this individual is a "thinking" being that is capable to give and take, respect and evaluate. This "pre-molded" individual has expressed himself. And it is f e l t that this opinion — if honestly concluded — should be respected, and evaluated, by his fellow students and the administration.

by Larry Siedentop P r o b a b l y t h e most controversial, e x h a u s t i n g , and sickening issue in p o s t - w a r A m e r i c a n politics was t e m p o r a r i l y resolved w h e n t h e United S t a t e s S e n a t e voted recently to censure t h e conduct of S e n a t o r Joseph M c C a r t h y of Wisconsin. Yet however g r a t i f y i n g the 67 to 22 vote a g a i n s t McC a r t h y in the S e n a t e may be, it is far from satisfying. N e a r l y i n t e r m i n a b l e debates, p o s t p o n e m e n t s , and excuses characterized proceedings which were mechanically concerned only with the actions of M c C a r t h y a s a senator, w i t h his a b u s i n g and p r o f a n i n g the s e n a t o r i a l method of i n v e s t i g a tion. In only one respect does the resolution of this a f f a i r seem impressive. Viewing t h e n u m e r o u s obstacles placed in t h e w a y of a censure, and t h e obvious unwillingness of s e n a t o r s to t a k e such a step, one m u s t conclude t h a t only an o v e r w h e l m i n g a c c u m u l a t i o n of g r i e v a n c e s could h a v e f o r c e d such a decision. W h a t r e m a i n s to disc o u r a g e , however, is t h e t e m p o r a r y and inconclusive n a t u r e of this s e t t l e m e n t concerning a p a r t i c u l a r phenomenon which is m e r e l y the sign of a f a r b r o a d e r t h r e a t . T h a t is, t h e personal power of Joseph McCarthy m a y be declining, but w h a t of the f a c t i o n t h a t i n s t i g a t e d him ? D u r i n g the d e b a t e r on censure, the u l t r a - c o n s e r v a t i v e s a n d reactionaries invoked the perennial bogus of " t h e C o m m u n i s t t h r e a t , " m a i n t a i n i n g t h a t a vote a g a i n s t M c C a r t h y would a m o u n t to the s a m e as a vote in f a v o r of allowing t h e C o m m u n i s t m o v e m e n t to s p r e a d unchecked. By m a k i n g the emotional bull of public opinion see red, t h e y hoped to i m m u n i z e M c C a r t h y and his m e t h o d s . Indeed, a f t e r the censure resolution was passed, the S e n a t o r f r o m Wisconsin displayed his t r u e colors by summarily maintaining t h a t President E i s e n h o w e r is now a i d i n g the C o m m u n i s t cause. No one seems to be above suspicion! The a m a z i n g f a c t becomes, then, t h a t t h e A m e r i c a n people have repeatedly fallen f o r such f r e n z i e d religious invocations and will probably do so a g a i n . T h a t t h e r e is a t h r e a t of C o m m u n i s t subversion in this nation, one m u s t certainly recognize. It m a y well be also t h a t c e r t a i n liberals have been unconcerned and even blind to a n y t h r e a t f r o m the l e f t . To t h a t d e g r e e t h e y m a y be c a s t i g a t e d . But the f a c t r e m a i n s , and one is a t a loss to see how it can be denied, t h a t t h e g r e a t e r d a n g e r is f r o m t h e r i g h t ! The United S t a t e s s e e m s basically and u l t i m a t e l y to be a r a t h e r conservative nation. It h a s privileges and possessions to m a i n t a i n . H i s t o r y can d e m o n s t r a t e t h a t such a nation, when even superficially t h r e a t e n e d f r o m t h e l e f t , tends to e m b r a c e t h e d i a m e t r i c a l opposite, in t h i s case, a t y r a n n y of t h e r i g h t . If t h i s c o u n t r y ever s w i n g s f r o m the m e a n to an " e x t r e m e " f o r m of g o v e r n m e n t , it would be, one f e a r s , to a neo-fascism. T h a t this h a s a l r e a d y occurred to s o m e d e g r e e is a p p a r e n t . Our r e p u b l i c a n democr a c y h a s become identified w i t h one p a r t i c u l a r economic s y s t e m , capit a l i s m , and it is c u s t o m a r y to b r a n d a n y o t h e r s y s t e m a s necessarily inf e r i o r , r e g a r d l e s s of c i r c u m s t a n c e s . More pointedly, even a mild Socialism is denounced a s i m m o r a l and unAmerican. The evidence that the faction behind McCarthy embraces even further advanced doctrines is both obvious and convincing. They invoke the Communist issue not because they fear Communism, but

To d r a w a p a r a l l e l : t h e responsibility of the public in t h e g o v e r n m e n t of a democratic n a t i o n does not cease with t h e election of the prescribed r e p r e s e n t a t i v e s , but i m m e d i a t e l y devolves u p o n t h e r e p r e s e n t e d g r o u p to keep itself well i n f o r m e d in order t h a t t h e g o v e r n m e n t m a y adequately l e g i s l a t e t h e needs and desires of t h e populace, t h e welf a r e of the m a j o r i t y .

It is difficult to lay t h e blame f o r t h i s situation.- The s t u d e n t body may h a r d l y be expected to s p o n t a n e o u s l y exude b r e a t h l e s s int e r e s t ; yet it is t h a t g r o u p t h a t is, of the f a c e of it, s h i r k i n g its responsibility. A s I see it, an equal or g r e a t e r a m o u n t of t h e blame is due t h e S t u d e n t Council itself. A little publicity c a m p a i g n to let t h e school know t h a t Council m e e t i n g s a r e open, a public invitation to meetings, would not be a t all out of order. In f a c t , it m a y be t h a t

because it furnishes a convenient and potent lever on public opinion. A f e w of McCarthy's strongest supporters had pronounced profascist sympathies before the Second World War; indeed, their present methods and propaganda bear striking resemblance to those of Hitler and Goebbels. Is it not obvious that they would take delight in placing their opponents in a position where they could oppose no longer? We may and must fight the challenge of world Communism. But shall w e lose our most basic liberties in the process?

J u s t finished s t u d y i n g Biology and am j u s t g e t t i n g ready to s t u d y English for exams tomorrow. I don't think my p r o f e s s o r s h a v e ever h e a r d of "Good Will T o w a r d Men". Dickens had a n a m e f o r " p r o f s " who a s s i g n e x a m s the last week b e f o r e C h r i s t m a s and I certainly hope some of mine h a v e t h e i r t h r e e visions between now and the t i m e we g e t back! J o e and I went to the nicest concert last week. T h e r e were j u s t t h r e e people — a pianis t, a violinist and a cellist — and it w a s m o s t romantic. E v e r y t h i n g w a s by c a n dlelight . . . even the g i r l s who ushered carried candles. I took one so I could read t h e p r o g r a m only when I set it down it fell over and burned a hole in J o e ' s overcoat a n d he took it a w a y f r o m me. E v e n though I couldn't read t h e p r o g r a m , I still e n j o y e d it because it was all so cozy. Only r i g h t in t h e middle of the concert t h e D e a n came in and insisted t h a t we t u r n on all t h e lights. T h e y even took the c a n d l e l a b r a a w a y f r o m t h e p e r f o r m e r s . I t h o u g h t it was j u s t unforgivable! We had the C h r i s t m a s V e s p e r Service Sunday b e f o r e last and t h e r e w e r e so m a n y people t h e r e t h a t t h e Glee Club had to sit in the balcony!

all that is needed is this type of push from the Council to g e t a snowball of more effective and dynamic student government moving down the hill. It's inconceivable to me that the majority of the student body doesn't care what happens in the Student Council.


HOPE

IN REVIEW F i r s t of all I should say t h a t not only is " T h e Glass M e n a g e r i e " a b e t t e r play t h a n is " M r s . McT h i n g " , but also the P&M production of it was b e t t e r t h a n was their first. P a r t i c u l a r l y praisew o r t h y were the l i g h t i n g and sets. Both were all t h a t can be hoped f o r in a small college production. " T h e Glass M e n a g e r i e " is not j u s t a good play; it m a y be said conservatively t h a t a t t h e very least it comes d a n g e r o u s l y close to being a g r e a t play. A l t h o u g h it is not high t r a g e d y , it is d r a m a ; it is u n h e a v y w i t h o u t being light, p a t h e t i c w i t h o u t being p i t i f u l , and sad w i t h o u t being m a u d l i n . It m i g h t be called d r a m a in a low key. Its p u r p o s e is not c a t h a r t i c . The audience is not intended to experience p u r g a t i o n t h r o u g h t e r r o r , passion, or pity. The t a l e itself is of an incident of c o m p a r a t i v e l y minor consequence, seen t h r o u g h the w i s t f u l veil of reminiscence, symbolized by t h e g a u z e c u r t a i n s . The o p e ning monologue s e t s this tone, and Mr. Ten Hoeve seemed to have c a u g h t this flavor, but it did not c a r r y t h r o u g h . Some of the r e a s o n s t h a t the production fell s h o r t of w h a t it should have been a r e implied in the descriptions of t h e c h a r a c t e r s given in t h e playbill. I do not k n o w the source of these descriptions, f o r , a l t h o u g h t h e y a r e in quotes, no credit is given, but it m a y nonetheless prove i n t e r e s t i n g to c o m p a r e them with those w r i t t e n by Mr. Williams and contained in t h e published t e x t of the play. The playbill describes A m a n d a as " a n addled S o u t h e r n belle h a r rassed by t h e p r e s e n t and h a u n t e d by the p a s t . " Tennessee William's r a t h e r l e n g t h l y description contains such s t a t e m e n t s a s " T h e r e is much to a d m i r e in A m a n d a " and " t h e r e is t e n d e r n e s s in h e r s l i g h t person." The playbill describes Tom as "a f r u s t r a t e d w e a k l i n g " while Mr. Williams s p e a k s of him a s " a poet with a job in a w a r e h o u s e . His n a t u r e is not remorseless, but to escape f r o m a t r a p he h a s to act without p i t y . " H a r d l y a description of a weakling. J i m O'Connor is described in the playbill as " a h e a r t y but s o m e w h a t touching e x t r o v e r t " and William's description is plain as well a s short, " a nice, o r d i n a r y , y o u n g m a n . " The descriptions of L a u r a coincide f a i r l y well. Tom Ten Hoeve gave, all in all, a good p e r f o r m a n c e . The pacing and g e s t u r e s of his monologues were at t i m e s artificial, and a t his e n t r a n c e in the sixth scene when he brings J i m home, he w a s r a t h e r too s a r c a s t i c and s h a r p f o r Tom, who despite his i m p a t i e n c e with his Mother's plotting, loves L a u r a and certainly does not wish J i m to receive a bad impression. These d e fe c t s a r e , however, m i n o r in overall p e r f o r m a n c e , in which Mr. Ten Hoeve displayed a sound g r a s p of his p a r t .

She h a s a l w a y s dealt with her wounds and f r u s t r a t i o n s by r e t r e a t i n g into t h e p r i v a t e world of her g l a s s m e n a g e r i e and p h o n o g r a p h ; and t h e s t a g e directions s u g g e s t t h a t she m e e t s the s i t u a t i o n s of which I speak in t h e same way. It s e e m s out of c h a r a c t e r t h a t she should find solace in fits of weeping. On t h e whole, however, Miss Phillips made a n a d e q u a t e i n t e r p r e t a t i o n of h e r role and communicated t h a t i n t e r p r e t a t i o n to the audience. F r a n c e s Rietveld played A m a n d a , which is by f a r the most difficult, a s well a s t h e most i m p o r t a n t role in the play. A m a n d a is a complex c h a r a c t e r and it is a complexity exceptionally difficult to deal with. She m u s t be both addled, h a r r a s s e d , and n a g g i n g , and a d m i r a b l e , tender, and a bit p a t h e t i c . A l t h o u g h Mrs. Rietveld is both e n e r g e t i c and t a l e n t e d , t h e m o r e s u b t l e a s p e c t of A m a n d a ' s c h a r a c t e r w a s overwhelmed and d r o w n e d by t h e s u r f a c e c h a r a c t e r i s t i c s . She drove h e r self and h e r children so h a r d and so incessantly t h a t she w a s not a very sympathetic character. When, in the f o u r t h scene, A m a n d a , choked w i t h self r e p r o a c h , s a y s , " M y devotion h a s m a d e me a witch and so I m a k e myself h a t e f u l to m y c h i l d r e n , " the p l a y g o e r is a p t to feel t h a t t h a t j u s t about s u m s up her c h a r a c t e r . T h e a d m i r a b l e and t e n d e r s i d e of h e r c h a r a c t e r w a s so o v e r s h a d o w e d by n a g g i n g t h a t she seemed a l m o s t a villain. She could be pitied but not s y m pathized w i t h . Mrs. Rietveld, however, r e m a i n s a t a l e n t e d and p r o m i s i n g a c t r e s s , and h e r p e r f o r m a n c e , a l t h o u g h f r e q u e n t l y s t r a i n e d , displayed i m p r e s sive d r a m a t i c ability. The i m p e r f e c t i o n which m a r r e d t h e p r o d u c t i o n may be s u m m e d up a s an a t t e m p t to e x a g g e r a t e the emotional pitch and o v e r d r a m a t i z e t h e s t o r y . T h e production seemed to a t t e m p t t o m a i n t a i n an ext r e m e l y t e n s e pitch of emotion t h r o u g h o u t t h e e n t i r e play. Res u l t a n t l y , t h e crises lost effectiveness by lack of c o n t r a s t . In an a t t e m p t to provide t h e lost cont r a s t , t h e climactic scenes w e r e played a t a r a t h e r violent emotional level, t h e r e b y c o m i n g d a n g e r ously close to a n a p p e a r a n c e of p a r o d y . T h u s the final scene, which should sum u p the p l a y ' s emotional i m p o r t — being tender, sad, and p a t h e t i c , w a s not a s moving a s it should h a v e been. As t h e g a u z e c u r t a i n c a m e down, with both women sobbing and wailing, t h e effect bordered on t h e maudlin, and the s i t u a t i o n r a t h e r t a i n t e d with the ridiculous. " T h e Glass M e n a g e r i e " is not a d a p t a b l e to high pitched, u l t r a emotional t r e a t m e n t . It is not high t r a g e d y . I t s s t o r y is not c a t a clysmic n o r a r e t h e c h a r a c t e r s p o w e r f u l and noble enough to be J i m Neevel, who p l a y e d J i m described a s h a v i n g t r u e t r a g i c O'Connor, a c o m p a r a t i v e l y minor s t a t u r e . W i l l i a m s describes his m a p a r t , luckily did not i n t e r p r e t t e r i a l in his production notes a s O'Connor a s " t o u c h i n g " b u t as he "delicate and t e n u o u s . " T h u s he was intended to be: a r a t h e r con- h a s woven into w h a t he calls in ceited mediocrity. t h e e x p l a n a t o r y note in t h e playbill D a w n Phillips is a t a l e n t e d a m e m o r y p l a y , centered a r o u n d y o u n g lady, and a d e q u a t e l y ethe- t h e g l a s s o r n a m e n t s which r e p r e real f o r t h e p a r t .

T h e r e is s o m e t h i n g sad about all t h i s — sad and f r i g h t e n i n g . It is sad because the g l o r y of the A m e r ican c a m p u s h a s a l w a y s been its f r e e d o m to consider controversial ideas, w e i g h i n g each in t h e b a l a n c e of t r u t h , s u b j e c t i n g each to scholarly e x a m i n a t i o n , c o m i n g to i n f o r m e d conclusions.
