Recent Grants To Help Finance Physics Building Hope College has recently received additional g r a n t s to aid t h e p a y m e n t of ^the construction of the new Physics-Mathematics Building. The latest grant is $10,000 f r o m the Upjohn Company. The grant was announced through Dr. E. Gifford Upjohn, M.D., c h a i r m a n of t h e Board of Trustees of t h e company. The college has also announced that it h a s received an $1800 g r a n t of stock from the Sears, Roebuck Company. The P h y s i c s - M a t h e m a t i c s Building. now being built next to Van Zoeren Library, is scheduled to be completed by next August, and will be used by classes and labs in the coming fall s e m e s t e r .

Friday Classes Scheduled Hope College s t u d e n t s this year will not receive an unscheduled e x t r a d a y of C h r i s t m a s vacation as they h a v e in the past, according to college P r e s i d e n t Dr. Calvin VanderWerf.

WHITE CHRISTMAS—Hope's c a m p u s is blanketed in white a s winter takes hold.

Winter Carnival To Exploit Snow Hope students will acknowledge the hold of 01' Man Winter on Holland by holding a Winter Carnival during the weekend of Feb. 7-8. Plans for this weekend of winter sports and other activities are now certain. General c h a i r m e n , Pete Van Lierop and Marcia Vande Vrede, have asked that students be reminded to bring their skates, skis, and suitable clothing back with them a f t e r C h r i s t m a s vacation. The schedule of events for the Carnival begins with a sled r a c e between f r a t e r n i t i e s at 4-5 p.m. Friday. The race will consist of a 150 lb. m a n on a sled pulled by a 6-8 m a n team. They will race on a •track m a r k e d out around i h e

c a m p u s . T h e r e will be several relay stations along it for f r e s h "dogs." The dinner meal F r i d a y will be a Slater special: a jazz c o m b o will play, dining halls will h a v e decorations and the attire will be ski pants and s w e a t e r s . F r i d a y night will f e a t u r e winter sports at Goshorn Hills. Students m a y ski, ice skate, or go on sleigh rides. R e f r e s h m e n t s will be served there, and the Union will be open serving hot chocolate as well. The skating ring will be open also. S a t u r d a y between 8:30 a . m . and 2:00 p.m. snow sculptors will be out. c r e a t i n g their works of art around the theme of American legends. Judging will t a k e place

between fraternities, sororities, dorms, and cottages. Between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. the girls will play ice soccer, a g a m e involving tennis shoes, a broom, and a soccer ball. Competition will be between classes. The championship of the f r a t e r n i t y ice hockey t e a m s will ibe decided between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Eliminations will run throughout the week. S a t u r d a y night Hope will play Alma at the Civic Center. The halftime e n t e r t a i n m e n t will include band numbers, decorations and a student skit. After the g a m e the Union will be open and there will be ice skating, a bonfire and r e f r e s h m e n t s .

In an interview Monday VanderWerf said that having a r a t h e r unorganized day off decided upon at the last minute would put a premium on unconscientiousness, since the conscientious students who plan on going to classes on Friday and schedule transportation for F r i d a y afternoon would lose out if the day were called off on F r i d a y morning. while the less conscientious students who leave early benefit by not missing classes on the previously unannounced day off. In o r d e r to aid his decision. VanderWerf asked the faculty members to give their opinions on whether an e x t r a d a y of vacation should be given. According to the president, "The faculty was very decided in favor of having classes. Of the a p p r o x i m a t e l y 50 who re-

plied, about 49 were against having F r i d a y off. " The president, nonetheless, is keeping an open mind to .the idea that having F r i d a y , or even up to the Wednesday, before C h r i s t m a s vacation off might be valuable to the s t u d e n t s for traveling time. However, he feels that, if such e x t r a days were allowed, they should be written into the college school year scheduling.

Local Stations To Run Hopeite's Radio Program " B y That S a m e S t a r " , a Christm a s p r o g r a m originally produced for television by the Public Relations Office at Hope College has been adapted for radio and will be heard locally on both radio stations.

Christmas in Washington by Robert Donia

THIS WAY OUT—Marsha Zamoida, Bryce Butler, Carole Timkovitch and Rob Werge helped to present sophomore Jennifer McGilvray's play in pantomime Saturday.

Sophomore McGilvray's Drama Presented Saturday at Theatre by Thomas Wombwell J e n n i f e r McGilvray, a Hope College sophomore, presented her laitest play, "This Way O u t , " in the Little T h e a t r e last S a t u r d a y a f t e r noon to an invitational audience. T h e m a t i c and technical considerations. it s e e m s , would be ina p p r o p r i a t e in a public review at this time. They might be v a l u a b l e for the playwright's a r t i s t i c development. They would not, however, be relevant to the potential viewer

of the play, the n e w s p a p e r r e a d e r , since at least as far a s this w r i t e r is a w a r e , t h e r e a r e no i m m e d i a t e plans to r e s t a g e the production for the general public. The point to be m a d e here is that in the writing of this play a creative work has c o m e f r o m a corner of the a r t s at Hope College in which writing has hitherto not been largely realized. Acting, directing, and production a r e important a s p e c t s of the t h e a t r e experience to which writing m a y now be added. Miss McGilvray's play is a m a j o r contribution. Continued faculty and student s u p p o r t m a y bring about even more significant works.

Merry Christmas and

Many a v e r a g e citizens wonder what life is like in Washington— with all those important personalities wandering around. Now, due to s o m e excellent outside sources, w e a r e able to give you this p e n e t r a t i n g analysis of Washington at C h r i s t m a s t i m e . The S u p r e m e Court building is conspicuous by its lack of decorations. By unanimous consent, the J u s t i c e s a g r e e d that C h r i s t m a s as a national holiday is Unconstitutional, b e c a u s e of its religious implications. However, since J u s t i c e Goldberg wanted s o m e recognition of H a n n u k k a h , the Justices have agreed .to a new and revolutionary f o r m of celebration—on opening e a c h court session, they smile. The Capitol building, however, is m u c h m o r e gay. In the m a i n lobby is a huge C h r i s t m a s tree decorated with green, yellow, white, orange, and blue light?—no red, out of deference to Senator Goldwater. Southern Senators can be heard singing their favorite Christmas carols, " I ' m Dreaming of a White C a m p u s " and " 0 L i f l e Town of Birmingham." The Democratic leadership, which has been conducting a filibuster a g a i n s t a motion to a d j o u r n , h a s somehow found time to distribute " W e love you, Bobby B a k e r " buttons to the m o r e funloving of the Congressional bunch. Some of the more reserved m e m b e r s of Congress have been seen stopping into the Quorum Club for

an occasional glass of holiday cheer. C o n g r e s s m a n A d a m Clayton Powell m a d e a speech on the House floor stating that he planned to spend C h r i s t m a s in E u r o p e , inspecting the educational s y s t e m of the French Riviera with his three secretaries. Senator Dirksen, minority leader, s t a t e d that he is opposed to such e x t r a v a g a n c e unless equal rights a r e g r a n t e d to ithe Republican minority. P e r h a p s the best .time of all is had at the White House. H e r e Lyndon "Ah need yowe h e l p " Johnson and his family h a v e decked the halls with boughs of s a g e b r u s h . They plan a delicious C h r i s t m a s dinner of corn f r i t t e r s and grits, f e a t u r i n g surplus m e a t , w h e a t , butter, milk, and corn. McGeorge Bundy, who gives the P r e s i d e n t his daily briefing on foreign affairs, received a subscription to The Dallas Star for C h r i s t m a s f r o m the Johnsons. He had complained since Mr. Johnson, in the interest of economy, cancelled all White House subscriptions to The Wall Street J o u r n a l , The New York Times, U.S. News, Time, Life, Newsweek, and F o r t u n e . Other White House Staff personnel w e r e

given a C h r i s t m a s present also: instructions on how to keep down office expenses, printed on the back of old tax f o r m s . At the State Depantment, res e a r c h e r s a r e busy trying to disprove a claim voiced in a recent note f r o m Khrushchev t h a t "We invented S a n t a Glaus." Nikita claims that Santa was a red bure a u c r a t who got stoned a t a K r e m lin party, a t t e m p t e d to walk home, and ended up at ithe North Pole by accident. Khrushchev also objected to the U.S. habit of calling Santa "St. Nik." T h e note said, " E v e r y one knows that ,there is only one Nik worthy of sainthood. Any traitor to the Moscow cause does not deserve the n a m e Saint. Such a •trick couldn't be played b y anyone other than you sneaky A m e r i c a n s except m a y b e the Red Chinese or Stalin." At the Defense D e p a r t m e n t , s t r a t e g i s t s have devised a new fung a m e which is being given .to all employees. Its called "Cut-back." E a c h player m a k e s his move and waits 12 hours to see how m a n y Congressmen object. The employee with the most objections is then m a d e S e c r e t a r y of Defense.

And to the girl who. while combing her grey-blond hair in G r a v e s lounge last week, said that she was " b o r e d with this p l a c e " and wished to t r a n s f e r to a m o r e cosmopolitan environment. This is also a letter to .the tablQ of bridge players I o v e r h e a r d talking in the smoker about the abs e n c e of activity and cultural int e r e s t at Hope.

This is a letter to the kids I've stood in front of and in back of in lunch lines, movie lines, registration lines, chapel card lines and, m a y b e only due to the absence of other common bonds, heard conclude that there's " s o m e kind of a void" h e r e in Holland.

Peace on Earth Christmastime! That great White Wonderland time, filled with sparkling Christmas trees and bells and gay presents and Santa Claus. Christmastime m e a n s wreaths and snow and shopping and c a r d s and little shepherds in old bathrobes carrying plywood shepherds' s t a f f s beside cute little blond Marys and dolls in m a n g e r s filled with Real Hay. C h r i s t m a s t i m e means visits and relatives and lights and carols and fireplaces and stockings and reindeer and that happy w a r m deep down feeling that you gel when you give a dime or a q u a r t e r to the Salvation Army girl ringing her bell all day on the corner. C h r i s t m a s t i m e ! That sparkling busy time filled with tinsel. And it's all great—except that C h r i s t m a s m e a n s Christ and all the wonder of God's great love and power, an idea so deep and quiet and inner and non-commercial that somehow it just doesn't s e e m to fit anymore, if we d a r e to be really honest with ourselves. Maybe we ought to call it Santatime, or Clausmas. "But C h r i s t m a s is for the Children." And at C h r i s t m a s t i m e we're all children finding it so easy to slip into the fantastic d r e a m of modern Christmas. C h r i s t m a s has become the great escape, our seasonal opiate. Eat, drink, and get presents for tomorrow we must enter the practical world of reality again. How much m o r e we would get out of Christmas if we honestly re-

flected on the true reality of God's great gift of a Savior accepting human form in order to save men—men as lowly as humble shepherds and as great as Wise Men. But we accept Christmas as children—reciting the words we know too well but rarely understand and instinclively knowing that the reason for being good is that we must placate the Santa Claus or parents or whomever else it is that will give what we want. Like too much in our society today so many of the vital essences of Christianity a r e being inverted, turned inside out, and ultimately degraded. Adults see nothing more in Christmas than their children do. The time of commemorating the birth of the Son of God into the world as the Son of Man—a time which could, and should, be a rebirth, renewal and renaissance of Christianity—is too rapidly being dominated by a multi-billion dollar socio-commercial structure which burying real Christianity in its waste basket of tinsel, plastic and wrapping paper. What can we do? We can start by taking X m a s from Santa Claus and giving Christmas to Christ. We can m a k e Christmas a time of peace on earth and religious wonder and adoration in our h e a r t s instead of a time in which we let ourselves be swept along in a chaos of h a r d selling commercials and saccharine sentimentality. We can realize that the real meaning and essence of Christmas lies quietly deep in the heart of an honest and m a t u r e Christianity.

Dutch Trip Westmont at Holland High by Steve D e P r e e Intermittent spurts of scoring and Glen Van Wieren's clutch c o m m a n d pushed Hope College to a triumph over Westmont College by a margin of 77-74 in a pulsating contest held at Holland High gym Monday night. Hope's s p u r t s of point-making n e v e r caught up with Westmont until the last few minutes of play when Captain Glenn Van Wieren displayed some all-round playm a k i n g to net a victory for the Flying D u ' c h m e n . Hope spent most of the g a m e t r y i n g to contain Westmont's Skelton who finally totaled 33 points. F i r s t half action saw the Blue and Orange on the losing end most of the time. Hope experimented with

a 1-3-1 defense at first, but resorted to the man-to-man when the cornerm e n started hitting. The initial half as a whole was quite dull for Hope fans as they saw their t e a m unable to keep up with the Westmont club. The half ended with the Flying Dutchmen behind by a score of 46-36. Hope began the second half with a flurry of successes to pull within 2 points of the opponent with fifteen minutes remaining. But a s before, Westmont rose to the occasion and lengthened their lead to as m u c h a s •4en points. Then Chris Buys and A1 P a l m e r started clicking offensively to help cut the lead to a single point with six minutes left. But Westmont tried one final run for the victory to make the lead 72-67. This

attempt was to no avail a s Glenn Van Wieren led a tremendous assault with about two m i n u t e s remaining on the clock. Van Wieren sank six crucial f r e e throws, rebounded aggressively, and stole the ball away to c a p t u r e the win for the Blue and Orange. Van Wieren's efforts m a d e him high scorer for the Blue and Orange with a total of 18 m a r k e r s . Hope's two other double-figure scorers were Ron Venhuizen with 16 and Clare Van Wieren with 10. Field goal p e r c e n t a g e s showed Westmont ahead as the shot for a cool 49 per cent while the Blue and Orange netted only 38 per cent. Hope outrebounded the opponent and swished a g r e a t e r percentage of f r e e throws to provide .the difference.

Plans for the 1964 Hope College Vienna S u m m e r School have ibeen completed and w e r e announced today by Dr. Paul Fried, Director of the p r o g r a m and c h a i r m a n of the His'.ory D e p a r t m e n t at Hope. A new f e a t u r e of next s u m m e r ' s p r o g r a m will be a choice of study tours. Students may register for either the R o m a n c e Language area tour or t h e G e r m a n Language a r e a tour. The 16-day Romance Language tour will be headed by Dr. E d w a r d Savage of Hope's English department. Savage, who h a s lived and traveled extensively throughout E u r o p e and the middle E a s t , will lead his group through F r a n c e , Italy, and Austria.

Hope and Calvin Discuss British Journal Prints Paper Sociology Seminar Plans Hope Sociology Professor Discussion of a new s u m m e r sociology seminar in conjunction with Calvin College is now underway in the Sociology Department. Under the proposed p r o g r a m , students enrolling in certain summ e r courses would be placed in " g o o d h o m e s " in the inner - city. T h e s e homes, mostly of Christian Negroes, would give the student practical experience, while he is t a k i n g six to nine hours of classr o o m credit, possibly in a n e a r b y r< M r . E a r l HkH, c h a i r m a n of Sociology D e p a r t m e n t , originally~cortCelv6d this idea a f t e r a visit to t h e Michigan Conference on Inter-Group Relations and Education early in November at Wayne State. This conference dealt with the problems of educating the culturally deprived and preparing c a p a b l e teachers for this work. " L o n g dissatisfied with analytical sociology with its ineffictiveness due to not putting the evidence to u s e , " Hall believes t h a t "this new project, in taking a d v a n t a g e of the environment, will be very e f f e c t i v e . " Calvin College is a l s o in terested in m a k i n g this project a

reality, possibly locating next summ e r in Grand Rapids, for its first year. Eventually, probably in its second year, t h e p r o g r a m will move to Chicago and Detroit for more typical inner-city work. Calvin and Hope College sociology sitaffs have been m eeting together monthly since September. The objective of the two departm e n t s working in close association is primarily to exchange teaching methods and ideas for m u t u a l benefit. Another project under their consideration for next fall is the exchange of courses. Donald R. Wilson, " a first-rate physical and cultural anthropologist" a t Calvin m a y come down to teach one course in anthropology, while Donald A. Clelland, a Calvin graduate, might teach an U r b a n Community course in exchange.

This British journal, a monthly periodical put out for sociology laymen, has a -wide circulation in the United States. The paper, first presented at the American Sociological meeting in September, was 'based on a study of a Michigan industrial c o m m u n ity, a city which has a g r e a t e r percentage of workers in the labor force than almost any oither city in the United States. The city had become highly professionalized due largely to automation.
