jforeUiorb A panorama of Hope; to record the activities of the year; to serve as a memento of the pleasures of our h a p p y college days; and to bring, into a closer bond of friendship, all loyal Hopeites; all this has been our purpose in presenting, this book.

Šebication Hope College has had, during the six decades of its existence, many great leaders.

To them we owe, in large

part, the glorious record which Hope men have made in many fields of endeavor.

And to the present leader of Hope, Dr.

Dimnent, much credit is due for his signal devotion to his Alma Mater.

Our true appreciation for the work he has

done, and is doing, cannot be expressed by mere words of praise.

W e know that he has faith in Hope, and in her high

mission. W e know that he has labored unceasingly to lead Hope ever on the upward path.

W e know that he has a deep in'

terest in the welfare and success of every student.

W e know

that in all things he has devoted himself entirely to the in' terests of Hope.

And, therefore, to show in some slight

measure our deepest appeciation for all these things, we, the class

of

Twenty-two,

affectionately dedicate, T O

D I M N E N T this 192! MILESTONE.

DR.

For all generous minds that have been young, there is a radiance oÂŁ loveliness that nothing can ever obscure over the ag,o.

Remembrance

hallows

days of lon^ them;

all their

hardships are forgotten; through the mists of time they glimmer in unsullied beauty, coming back with their lost loves, their vanished comrades, their hopes that since h a v e withered, their dreams that are dead and ^one; and the heart thrills to remember; and for a moment the ^lory of morning, streams over all the world.

OUR ALUMNI It has often been said that it is not equipment nor buildings, not the peculiarities of curriculum, nor even the faculty, which make a college, but the body of Alumni. For Hope, this statement is especially true. W e point with pride to those who have gone out before us, and as members to be of that great body, we aim to do our part in fulfilling the mission of the old Hope. To our Alumni we bring greetings, and we wish them the best of success in their many opportunities for service.

Poems b y Betty Vande Veere

BITS OF SPRING A bit of tangled wildwood, Shot thru with gleams of sun, A n d birds a-singing madly T o show the Spring's begun. A merry little brooklet O ' e r pebbles skips along, Striving as it journeys T o sing a new spring song. A purple-hued violet. Peering forth so shy F r o m the depths of her dark green shelter A bit of fallen sky.

LOVE-SONG O, it's deep in love P m fallin' While the voice of spring's a-callm" And the sky's a glimmerin', shimmerin' sheet o" blue. O, the golden sun's a-shinin And the heart o' me is pinin' For the dearest thing in life, and that is you. O . the buds an" grass, an' flowers And the fickle little showers An" the matin" birds a-singin pledges true. Are a-singin' every minute That the world has nothin' in it But the smilin", lovin' creature that is you.

Sophomore Class After having s e e n both victory and defeat during their Freshman year, the Class of '23 came back in the fall of nineteen hundred and twenty, determined to eliminate defeat. Some past hero has said, " T o the victor belongs the spoils." T h e Sophs, according to the spoils gained, are twice victorious. In every branch of athletics the Class of '23 has representatives. In oratorical and debating ability this class leads all others. T h e college orator in the M . O. L. was a Sophomore, as well as Hope's five new debaters, who are out to uphold past honors. And in all other activities, the Sophomore representatives are not found wanting. Although these laurels and honors deserve special mention and praise, they will wash away in the stream of life. W h a t really distinguishes this class from all others is the fact that the greatest percentage of its members have decided to devote their lives to help further the onward and upward march of Christianity.

The Freshman Class Sept. 16th, 1920 will ever be remembered as the greatest of all days in the history of Hope College. It was then that the College threw wide open its portals and the entire student body stood with outstretched arms waiting to welcome the class of 1924. T r u l y it should have been a delightful experience for the Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores to welcome into their companionship a class such as the freshman class of this year. However, we were not too "green" to notice the indifference of the Seniors, the anxiety of the Juniors and the arrogance of the Sophomores. But it was not long before a tremendous change had taken place. Gone was the indifference of the Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they began to feel something akin to hero-worship; lifted the anxiety of the Juniors as to our futureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we are pals; and the Sophs! W e had brought them to actual dripping humility. W e have proven our worth. T h e equal of any class in athletic prowess, in scholastic attainments, in our efforts in societies and in social achievements. W e feel now that it is up to us to carry on as we have begun, with a realization of Hope s ideals for her men and women, and the knowledge of our highest capabilities. May we be the most studious of Sophomores, the pepiest of Juniors, the greatest leaders as Seniors, and the most loyal of Alumnae.

Y. W. C. A. T h e Y. W . C. A. at Hope during the past year was the largest and most energetic girl's organization on the campus. It united all the girls of the college and preparatory school in loving fellowship and service. Its fundamental endeavor was to strengthen the christian life of each girl, to lead others to faith in God thru Jesus Christ, and to give to each girl a broad horizon of the needs of women and children the world over. T h e activities of the Y. W . C. A. have been numerous and worthy. In addition to pledging, with the Y. M . C. A. to pay the salary of the principal of Hope High School in India, the association helped pay the salary of a Y. W . C. A. industrial secretary in Japan. At Christmas time, boxes of toys and clothing were sent to our Indian and Kentucky Mission Schools. During the month of November the Association girls presented the operetta, " O n Plymouth Rock." A large amount of the proceeds were given to the Armenian and Chinese relief funds. Eight of our members attended the Y. W . C. A. conference held at Lake Geneva, August 17-27. A cabinet council, to which delegates from Albion, Alma, M . A. C., Kalamazoo Normal, and Kalamazoo College were sent, was held at Hope from May 6-9. These two conferences have filled the " Y " work with new ideas and great enthusiasm. One result was the amending of our constitution by the adoption of the new membership basis, which has worked very successfully. Beside these activities, many of the girls also give their Sunday afternoons to teaching in rural Sunday Schools. W e have especially endeavored to promote the health program of the Hope girls. A Health meeting, a beach meeting, posters on good posture, correct clothing and good sense shoes have aided greatly in this endeavor. OFFICERS President Vice President Secretary.

Hope College Y. M. C. A. One of the oldest organizations on the campus and, today, the most representative body of the men of Hope is the Y. M . C. A.

It is a vital organization in college

life because of its influence upon the studentryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;individually and collectively.

The

purpose and objective of the Association is "to promote a positive moral and religious spirit" and to stimulate the development of Christian faith and character thru prayer, study of the Bible, and the many channels of service with the supreme aim in all of making Christ "the King of the Campus."

Student meetings are held on each Tues-

day evening, hours of the best fellowship with one another and our Master.

Further

activities include deputation work, Sunday School teaching and management, and, in connection with the Y. W . C. A. the support of the principal of Hope High School Hope College without the association in common fellowship

^ncrcb jHuSe Inspire thou me, O sacred Muse, in this my task of joy. T o show the wonders of thy might, the arts thou dost employ Whereby thy charms are known. T h e earth, the sky, the air T h y worship is a pleasure. T o thee in lowliness does bend T h e heart of every man that breathes. Songs of joy ascend Where'er thy spirit is invited. T h y divine inspired strains Have soothed the heart of man whene'er in grief he drains T o the dregs his cup of woe. In the stillness of the night. O'er silent and resting fields with calm and soothing might. Thou dost the creeping beasts inspire to sing their nightly song. How sweet and tuneful are the strains that sound the whole night long T h e enchantment of thy mighty art often yet doth sway T h e heart of mortal man, where'er thou beckonest the way. Whene'er thou wilt, thou movest men to happiness and gladness, But dost thou choose the otherwise, to lonely grief and sadness. When dreary night gives unto day the charge of earth to keep. And in the east the sleepy sun comes looking o'er the steep, 'Tis then from darksome earth doth rise an anthem of sweet praise, A thousand birds in unison send forth their joyous lays. From silent hills and vales and bush and every trailing vine. Breaks forth a sound of happy mirth akin to that divine. One mighty chorus! Their sweet throats nearly break, In utterance of their happy songs by which the morn to wake. This then the head of man lifts up and feels the joyous thrill. W h e n light and beauty, joy and gladness deeply drink their fill Of morning's bounteous wealth. Oh, Muse, how great thou art. For man provide this deep sweet joy, the thrill of soul and heart. How sacred are the tender ties thy charms will oft inspire! Tender ties, yet stronger far than death or hell and fire. T h e helpless cry of new-born babe, no words can e'er express Its wondrous meaning for its mother, the infinite tenderness W i t h which she hears the sound. Its helpless crying voice, Arouses into consciousness new causes to rejoice. T h e tender joy of motherhood inspired by thy will, Finds only love its counterpart, a calm both deep and still. When from the mysteries of storm there comes the thunder crash, And Nature seems intent on man its mighty forces clash, And up above from peak to peak the mighty thunders roll.

Page Seventy-four


How strange the feeling of the mind, the experience of the soul! T h e pagan to his self-made god kneels in fear and fright, Not knowing whence the sounds proceed, not whence the furious might. T h e earth, in waiting attitude, rolls on Thor's mighty voice, W h o happy in his freedom given, reveals in the choice Of play he most enjoys. All nature to him yields Her forces for his pleasure, while over hills and fields He romps in his wild game- Soon tired of his play. He seeks new scenes to visit and slowly moves away. His voice grows fainter, fainter as slowly on he goes Till hardly he is heard. Oh, Muse how sweet then flows T h e music from his voice! W h e n thus touched by thy charm. His voice once loud and harsh, grows tender, sweet and calm. How oft one quiet evening have I thy spirit felt. W h e n day retiring from her tasks in holy stillness knelt T o hallow nights arrival, ere to earth she gently closed Her watchful eyes so fair, and in arms of night reposed. 'Twas then while dusk came slowly creeping o'er the hills, I heard the distant coo of doves whose music only fills T h e soul with restful calm. T h e owl in his somber state. From the longings of his heart called to his lonely mate In plaintive notes and grave. W i t h measured beats the crickets kept T h e rythm of their tuneful song, while man and nature slept. T h e beetles, busy guardsmen keeping watch throughout the night, Gruffly buzzed their stern commands as onward kept their flight. And fireflies like little stars in keeping with their duty. Filled the slews and meadows with the radiance of their beauty. A spicy sweetness then prevades the quiet air of night. As shades of coming night grow thick, and daylight takes its flight T o realms unknown to man. T h u s in quiet peace and beauty. Day retires to her rest and night takes on her duty. W h e n night does thus approach with what gentle grace. Oh, Muse, Dost thou thy kindly spirit over all the earth diffuse. No wonder was it that the sage of many by-gone years. Termed thy charms most fittingly "the music of the spheres. T h e heart that beats in tune can hear a thousand different lays. For all life itself reveals the wonders of thv ways. B. P.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;'22.

ORATORY

This year Hope's contestants in the M . O. L. were Vera Keppel and Judson Stapellcamp. They were the best we had, and our hopes were high, for we thought that after a few months of D r . Nykerk's splendid coaching, we would again be state winners. But we can't win all the time. However, we are sure that our representatives did their very best, and we are proud of the showing they made. Miss Keppel was given second place and IVIr. Stapellcamp was given third place.

T h e Hope-Detroit Debate this year was cancelled.

The men were picked and

ready to debate in February, but it seemed as if no date could be agreed upon, and since the school year was almost ended the debate was called off.

Burrgraaff, De

Graft and Visscher formed the Affirmative team, on the question of "Compulsory Arbitration," while Osterhof, Engelsman and Blocker formed the Negative.

ATHLETICS


Coach Schouten From the beginning of her history, Hope has boasted of her athletic record, for she has always produced athletes of the highest caliber. For many years, however, there has been on the campus much latent material which remained undeveloped. With the addition to the faculty of the Director of Athletics, Hope is now getting that all around physical training which alone makes continued athletic prowess assured. Altho his seat with the faculty has been occupied but a short time, the Athletic Director, Jack Schouten, has already created for himself a warm spot in the hearts of many students, for his daily contact with them and his personal interest in their affairs make them feel that he is one of them. In more than one way Jack has proved himself a true friend of the student body, for to him we must give the credit for raising the condition of the Athletic Association from one of degeneracy and almost bankruptcy to a stable and well regulated organization. T o him also belongs the credit for the permament establishment of physical training for women at Hope, and also the possibility of their obtaining the coveted college letter by working out a prescribed schedule.

Basketball Basketball has ever been the leading sport at Hope. Whenever a Michigan team aspires to the State Championship, it inevitably asks, "I wonder what the Dutchmen from Holland will do this year?" Hope has indeed established an enviable record among the colleges of the state; she is always a contender for first honors. W i t h four letter-men from last year as a nucleus, and with much promising material for second string men to scrimmage with, the season opened with the brightest of prospects. O u r first opponents were the Lowell American Legion aggregation, who were easily defeated 35 to 15. T h e next week found our basketeers pitted against Calvin College, who also departed much wiser than when they came. Then the team started on an extended western trip in which it met and defeated many strong teams. T h e first game was with the crack South Bend, Ind., Y. M . C. A. team. This being the first game away from home, the boys seemed lost and were defeated 40 to 15. Then came the Whiting Owls, who had to be satisfied with the small end of a 30 to 10 score. T h e team then journeyed to Iowa, where it played Western Union College at Le Mars, two games with Sheldon Co. E, Hull Independents, two games with the Iowafamous Sioux Club, first at Sioux Center and then at Orange City, and the Orange City American Legion. T h e only game lost was at Sioux Center. T h e trip was i. huge success. Next came the annual tilt with Grand Rapids Y. M . C. A. on New Year's night. Before an immense crowd the Orange and Blue once more triumphed over their old rivals from the furniture city by a score of 22 to 18. Company F, of Grand Haven, was their next victim, by a 44 to 11 tally. T h e following week found our warriors battling on the large M . A. C. floor. After a very hard game the team suffered its third defeat of the season. T h e count stood 31 to 17. Then came the Grand Rapids Y. M . C. A. for a return game, but again were they disappointed, for they went home with the undesirable end of a 36 to 17 score. The Buicks at Flint were easily downed, but the Bay City Industrials turned the tables on us. T h e Kazoo Normals had a very fine team this season and disappointed us by twice going home with the bacon, but only after strenuous battles. T h e game with M . A. C. at home was one of the most exciting. T h e first half ended 12 to 8 in Hope's favor, but during the first few minutes of play in the second half, the farmers made some long lucky shots that finally gave them the game 27 to 23. T h e fuss with M t . Pleasant was a hard one, but never did we lose the lead. T h e last game with Alma turned out to be a farce. All in all, Hope has again produced a team of which it can well be proud. T h e men were very faithful and none were ruled out because of a failure in studies. Fifteen victories out of a possible twenty-two and scoring 631 points to our opponents' 442, is a fine record. Next year's season promises to be even a better one, since all the regulars are Juniors and will undoubtedly return. Let's all get behind the coach and boost athletics! Boost for Hope! Jack has made a fine success. Let's go for a greater and finer Hope!

"Dickie" Jappinga, captain (left forward) 43 halves, 247 points. Dick has always been a welloiled cog in our scoring machine. All of our opponents always make it a point to watch the little forward that parts his hair in the middle. He certainly made an efficient captain.

"Wessie" Wassenaar, (right forward) 39 halves, 129 points. Wessie is a mighty scrappy little player. Lucky for his opponents that he isn't a giant. He is fast and works well. Basketball has been his great incentive to study.

" G a r r y " Dejong, (right guard) 37 halves, 4 points. Garry has been a tower of strength on the defense. Time and again plays by the opposition would be foiled by his clever work. W o e to the man that tried to dribble past or push aside our big boy under the basket!

"Dyke" Van Putten, (left guard) 42 halves, 169 points. Dyke is still as slippery as he used to be. He certainly got his share of the points when it comes to dividing the honors. He could always be depended upon to do his part in every play.


" M i k e " Schuurmans, (center) 43 halves, 38 points. " M i n t a " has not been out-jumped this season. He ably assisted Garry at guarding our basket. Wherever the fight was thickest you could depend on seeing "Montana Mike."

"Bill' Joldersma, (sub-guard) 22 halves, 16 points. "Jake" got many chances to play and he acquitted himself with honor. He could be relied upon to fill his position at any time.

" G u a r d " , V a n Eenenaam, (sub-center) 7 halves, 6 points. " G u a r d " played a consistent game whenever he got a chance, and was always faithful throughout the season.

"Jack" Schouten (Coach). "Doc' is a hale and hearty good fellow. He works with the boys as if he were one of them. He has encouraging ways that draw the best out of everybody. Yes! Even our co-ed athletes simply "love" him.

CROSS C O U N T R Y

Track This year about thirty men have signed up for Track. This sport is lately being regarded with greater interest, so that within a very Jew years Hope will have a track and field team that will be able to compete with any college in the state. 1'or a number of years Hope has been competing with various institutions in long distance running. T h e one annual event has been the thirty mile relay race with the Grand Rapids \ . M . C. A., between Holland and Grand Rapids. Each of these teams is composed of ten men. T he " now has one victory the better of us, the tally standing, Hope, five; "'V six. But this year Hope's men are determined to even up the affair. Another event of great importance is the annual cross-country run at M . A. C. late in the fall. Here all the colleges of the state compete in a five mile race. This year, as last, Hope again took third place, being beaten only bv the large state institutions, U. of M . and M . A. C. O n May i, 1920, a four mile cross country race was conducted at Holland between the combination Calvin College, Grand Rapids " Y " team and Hope. T h e race was an intensely interesting one, especially for first place. T h e Furniture City team won. Last year the Orange and Blue participated in its first dual inter-collegiate field meet, stacking up against the crack Kalamazoo College team. Considering the lack of proper facilities such as cinder paths, jumping pits, and other equipment for practice, our men did remarkably well. Kazoo won the meet. Each year the Ahletic Association grants a trophy to the class winning the annual inter-class field meet. 1 here is a great deal of rivalry and competition between the classes in these events. Last year the present Seniors won the meet, the present Juniors taking second place.

Football football is a coming sport at Hope, and will soon b; taking as important a place as basketball. During the past two years a greater interest has been shown by both students and alumni, and there are more candidates for positions on the team than ever before. Last year no major accidents were sustained because each player was kept in best possible condition, and given the best equipment. Immediately after the cprning of school, the men were called out and put thru the usual preparatory drills foi a number of weeks. Most of Hope s players have to be developed from raw material, for u e have no system of granting scholarships to draw the cream of high school talent to our hall. W e are primarily an educational institution, and athletics are merely a source of physical development. Altho we did not put out a wonderful winning team last yeai, nevertheless we feel proud of the record we made and the spirit in which the team met defeats. W E feel certain that in a few years Hope will be feared as a strong rival on the gridiron as well as on the basketball court. SCHEDULE A broad

Baseball Baseball is a coming game at Hope. A few years back we were unheard of in inter-collegiate circles, but with the advent of John H. Schouten, a veteran Northern League Baseball player, as coach, the good old national sport is coming to its own here. Even before the Basketball season had ended, the candidates for the Baseball team were called out for spring practice. Twenty-eight m e n signed up, thereby assuring lively competition and a good team. T h e manager has arranged a very strong schedule that promises to put Hope on the Baseball map during the season of 1921. Last year a good schedule was arranged, but owing to the weather two of the games were cancelled. This left seven games to be played, of which we won five. 1 he first was to be with M . A. C. on April 10, but owing to weather conditions it had to be cancelled. T h e first game played was with the Kalamazoo Normals at Kazoo. T h e teachers had a veteran team which defeated us 6-2. Then came Junior College at Grand Rapids. In this game Hope men showed their mettle and trounced our Metropolitan neighbors 10-3. By playing "air tight ball" the Ferris Institute nine of Big Rapids were held to four runs while Hope by timely hitting and clever bunting, ran up a score of 15. Then Junior College came to Holland, and after a hard game returned home with the small end of a 5-4 score.

The Athletic Board of Control 1 his board is composed of two faculty members, an Alumni representative, the Coach, and two student representatives.

While the control of athletics is almost en-

tirely in the hands of the student body, this board is a connecting link between the student body and the faculty.

Eligibility of players, dates of games and further gen-

eral supervision of athletics, are the duties of this body.

A new constitution has been

written this year, which greatly simplifies these duties. PERSONNEL OE BOARD PROF. E. W I N T E R . . . . PROF. P. E . H I N K A M P . REV. W .

The Athletic Board T h e members of the Athletic Board are elected by the association to have general supervision of athletics. In this, the fifth year of its existence, the Board has done more to establish the association on a firm business basis than in any other year. This is, to a great extent, due to the fact that the college authorities have employed an athletic coach, and that nearly every student has willingly supported the association financially and otherwise.

The Student Council T h e existence of a student council implies a certain measure of self-government. W i t h a view toward extending the scope of this self-control the Council has this year carried on an experiment.

It has endeavored to eliminate the feeling of class enmity,

that usually arises between the two lower classes and that often has led to undesirable results, and to substitute for it a healthy, sportsmanlike inter-class rivalry.

To

this end it initiated a set of Freshman regulations to be in force from the opening day of t h e Colleg'e u n t i l T h a n k s g - i v i n g - r e c e s s to b e e n f o r c e d b y t h e S o p h m o r e s . In addition the Council fostered inter-class athletic events, such as the annual tug-ofwar, which, as in other years, it supervised.

If the future proves the plan successful,

another step will have been taken toward the realization of the Council's aims. OFFICERS President

Science Club 1 ho younger than most of the organizations on the campus, the Science Club has a record on which it looks back with pride.

Founded with the purpose of culti-

vating a deeper insight and a broader outlook upon science in the Hope students contemplating this as their career, it has far surpassed the hopes of its founders.

T h i s is

undoubtedly due both to the high standard of scholarship required before admission and the pride which its members take in upholding this standard.

Every graduate

of the Science Club is on the road to success in his particular branch of scientific endeavor, and consequently the club has become the goal toward which every Hopeite pursuing the science course aspires. OFFICERS President Vice President Secretary-Treasurer

Sibylline W e believe that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit; therefore we shall keep it strong. W e believe that the mind is the interpreter of G o d ; therefore we shall keep it pure. W e believe that the spirit is the essence of G o d ; therefore we shall keep it right. W e believe in the glory of the out-of-doors; body, mind, and spirit attuned to all created things:

to the beauty of the dawn, to the brightness of the noon,

to the quiet of the night. W e believe in the power of knowledge—in a mind at home in the world. W e believe in the majesty of righteousness—in hearts at one with God.

Fraternal Society Eighty-seven years ago a group of men at Union College met together for the purpose of organizing a society, which they christened " F r a t e r n a l . " T h e objective was that of making every member an all-around citizen of the world. President Philip Phelps, a graduate of Union, and first President of Hope College, opened the way for continuing the society at Hope, and accordingly in 1863 the archives of the organization were transferred to our school. Since that time the members of the society have been directing their efforts to be in contact with every phase of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to broaden intellectually, to develop socially, and to attain moral and spiritual progress, by carefully adhering to the constantly emphasized idealâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;"Friendship, Love and T r u t h .

Knickerbocker Society Backed by determined effort, and with a zeal to furnish more wholesome competition at Hope, twelve Freshmen in 1909 welded themselves together and planted the seeds of Knickerbockerism. Since that time it has, and continues to place men into all the college contests and activities.

I his it does by fitting them thru the weekly gatherings; where the K. S.

fellowship overpowers and spurs on, where the intellectual, social and moral are stressed and practiced. Knickerbockers surround the globe, and each in his own station is keeping the K. S. Triangle firmly resting upon its "intellectual" base, and diverting from this, its "moral" and "social" sides. It is always with an eye singled for the good of Hope that she presses forward with her bannerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Ruby-Blackâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and in all her activities she aims to help raise the standards of Hope throughout State and Country.

Emersonian Society T h e Emersonian Society, altho but two years old, has shown itself capable of rapid growth.

N o t only has the membership increased to twenty-nine, but the members

have become stronger intellectually, morally, and socially, and already Emersonians are looking backward with pleasure to past achievements, and forward with faith to the rewards of success.

I t is their joy to see men of honor enter the activities of the

college with love for its principles, and strive for its prosperity.

T h e r e have been

trials overcome, problems solved, but the conviction is theirs that the seedling of today swayed by the gentle breeze of summer, becomes the mighty oak of tomorrow bent only by the terrific blast of winter's storm. " T h e n Hing out anew, sons of Emerson true. Let it float on the wings of the light; Noble banner of Love, H o n o r , Freedom, Success; O u r beloved M a r o o n and the W h i t e .

Preparatory Basketball With the donning of the peerless "Orange and Blue" by the seasoned "varsity" squad, memories of last season's splendid basketball team arose in the hearts of many "Prepites." Enthusiasm ran high and they were determined to "go in and w i n " again. Due to the fact that they were obliged to organize practically two different teams during the season, they failed to reach last year's standard. Nevertheless, it revealed that "Prep" contains good material, the nucleus for a strong "varsity" team later on. Nothing daunted, the "Preps" look forward to a good bunch of "tossers," and a more successful season next year.

SEMINARY

f r*


T H E WESTERN THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY 1 lie 1921 Seminoles (not of the Mexican variety) feel delighted in sharing with the Collegians a few pages in the annual issue of the College Yearbook. T h a t the College and the Seminary, tho seperate in administration and divided by the hard, cold fact of 12th street, are united in spirit is evidenced by the interchange of athletic contests, the common use of gymnasium and tennis court and bowling alley; the f r a t e r n i z i n g of t h e studentry, male and female, and all 'round interest of the two schools in each other. T h e m a j o r i t y of the neophite preachers hold in tender m e m o r y that dear old College close t o the inland sea—her victories a r e their victories; her defeats are their s o r r o w ; her glory is their rejoicing, her woe bringeth tears. T h e \ \ esten Seminary is an institution that produces specialists. F r e s h f r o m the College and the training school they come to be rooted and g r o u n d e d in the principles of the R e f o r m e d faith. Old T e s t a m e n t L a n g u a g e and Exegesis, N e w T e s t a m e n t Exposition, Systematic Theology, Authority, Church History, Sacred History, IRieligious Education, Principles of Pulpit work. Practical Theology—these, and many others, are all directed t o w a r d s the goal—the effective preaching and teaching of the W o r d of God. Already in the first year of his course, the coming preacher, filled with the enthusiasm and the f e r v o r of the new attainment, tries his art, and invariably realizes a new experience that f a r surpasses anything that he has ever experienced before. A n d so he g r a d u a t e s to the noblest calling in the world^—the ministry of the Gospel. T h e W s t e r n Seminary needs men. Tt has splendid equipment, it has a strong, consecrated faculty and it offers opportunity to labor in the biggest field and the noblest task that man can desire. T h e call goes out to men of red blood and earnest zeal, they who have the w e l f a r e of mankind and the world at heart, to come join the ranks of those who a r e striving to carry the Banner of the Cross to victory.

You wouldn't drink water from a stagnant pool; then why risk your health and the family's by breathing stagnant air? Over 150,000 users of the Holland Heating System recommend it for your home. The endorsement letters that we are constantly receiving, prove, over and over again, that the Holland burns all fuels with satisfaction and economy. They prove, too, that expert installation (all Hollands are installed by Holland Experts) has as much to do with the dependability and life-time durability, as the scientific construction of the furnace itself. The Holland Guarantee makes the World's Largest Installers of Furncaes, directly responsible to you for your entire Heating Systemâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;completely installed. Your Home deserves one.

PARADISE

MY PAL An understanding heart, And two dear eyes Which to my own impart Sweet mysteries; A consciousness of God When she is near Like that which stirs the clod When Spring is here; A hand in mine—a touch— A joy to feel That life has, oh, so much W o r d s can't reveal A tho't of death—a smile: I know full well She'll walk the second mile A sweeter pal. -—Xezex.

Y e s Sir

JAS. A. BROUWER CO.

Would'st thou see Heaven? It is not only when the breath of Death Thy clay has riven A glimpse of Paradise is given. But if thy soul is upward struggled, U p w a r d striven. Till in the Truth, the Good, the Beautiful doth recognize With stirred emotions, ond with gladdened eyes, Be well content.

For in thyself there

lies That fair perfection which is P a r a dise. — E . V. D. V.
