i \ l A R I X U S W I L L I A M VAX P U T T E N ( F o r w a r d ) With the loss of "Putty," by graduation, Hope College loses one of the best forwards who ever wore the Orange and Blue.

T E U N I S P R I N S (Guard) Rated high in Bradstreet s. in Michigan."

" 1 he best guard

^ L A R E X C E H E E M S T R A (sub-forward) He's unusually quiet, but the boy is full of F I G H T when he gets in the game.

H A R V E Y R A M A K E R (Center) The center of attraction. Watch out for him next year.

COACH S C H O U T E N To "Jack" every Hopeite doffs his hat. By his untiring efforts we have succeeded in puttingout an A-l team.

100


P E T E R X. P R 1 N S ( S u b - f o r w a r d ) His unusual amount of "pep" on the floor distinguishes him f r o m the ordinarj' sophomore.

F R E D V O S (Guard) A guard of whom the United States army might well be proud.

L A U R E N C E H E X R Y DALAI AX ( F o r w a r d ) A brilliant star on the basketball floor, he also shines brightly in every line of athletics.

JOHX T S T E K E ' l E E (Sub-Guard) Built of the same material guards are always noted.

for which our

MANAGER TEX HAKEX "Bill" has given us a mighty strong schedule, and it is largely due to his work that we have met the best in the land. W e are proud of our team, Orange and Blue, and nary a trace of the yellow.
