iForcfaoib The pattern of our college days is woven from strands of various lengths and different colors. There is the gray of gloom and struggle, the golden gleam of victory and inspiration, the blue of constant friendship, and the brilliant hues of joy and laughter. That this boolf may recall the variegated pattern and teach us all to weave more truly, is the wish of the s t a f f . May it truly prove a MILESTONE of Hope to you!

As from year lo year rve leave these college halls, n>e feel that, as students. We are only part-conscious of the elements that have gone toward our making. Yet, rve at Hope do deeply appreciate the devotion to his Alma Mater of one who fills his place as counselor and friend. As a teacher he has given us insight beyond the facts into great, infinite forces and vast processes of human achievement. To all who know him he stands as a worthy example of the integrity of Christian manhood. In gratitude for these gifts to us,—ideals of service which may not be measured,—we, the class of 1 9 2 4 , do dedicate this 1 9 2 3 Milestone to our friend PROFESSOR WYNAND WICHERS.

W e have completed a successful year of work and pleasure, which has welded us together into a united class. Along with the disappearance of our green ribbons and caps, went the strangeness and newness of college life, and to take its place came an evergrowing knowledge of Hope and her ideals. W e appreciate the willing assistance the upper classes gave us in our initial college year, and their fostering in us the Spirit of Hope.

Y. W . C . A . "And I have felt A presence that disturbs me with the joy Of elevated thoughts." H o w truly do these words express the sentiments of each girl after having attended the regular weekly devotional meetings of the Hope Y. W . C. A. At the time of day when God paints in most marvelous tints the wonders of the universe we come together to disclose the beauty that God has put in our hearts, to experience the spirit of true friendship, and to feel the inspiration of lofty visions and high ambitions. Our three-fold duty, spiritual, mental and phj'sical development has been well performed, our chief emphasis necessarily being along spirtiual lines. It has been our purpose " T o lead others to faith in God, to promote their growth in Christian faith, especially through Bible study and prayer, and to influence them to devote themselves with Christians in making the will of Christ effective in human society, and in extending the kingdom of God throughout the world." It is to Y. W . that we owe the inspiration and pleasant memories from Lake Geneva, the splendid success of our Week of Prayer, and our rollicking good times. W e have also been doing some interesting practical work through our Social Service Committee. H o w happy we were to picture those beaming little faces described in the letters from the mission schools to which we sent our boxes. Y. W., through its high standards and unselfish motives, has exalted all that which goes to make the true type of womanhood, and has become a powerful influence for good on the campus. May we ever be loyal to the challenge Y. W . has sounded. OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer U n d e r g r a d u a t e Field R e p r e s e n t a t i v e

Home Volunteers Although still in its infancy, the H o m e Volunteer Band, which was organized last year, witnessed a very splendid season. The purpose of this organization is to bring those students who have the ministry in view into closer fellowship and to study the problems which are apt to be met in Christian service. Some very lively discussions were held and the interest that has been manifested in the meetings gives evidence to the fact that the Home Volunteers are progressive. To give an added zest to the meetings a number of excellent speakers were secured who addressed us on subjects which were timely and of vital importance. T h e H o m e Volunteers are united with Student Volunteers in prayer to God that, we together, may help in bringing about the evangelization of the world in this generation. W e have caught a vision of the needs of the world and are willing to do our utmost to strengthen the avenues of support for those on the far flung battle fields in their endeavor to take the Christian message of joy and gladness to the heathen.

Student Volunteer Group " T h e Evangelization of the world in this Generation." W h o would have dared to utter such a statement a few years ago? It is a sign of the times; an awakening of the church from its lethargy of selfish individualism to a broad vision of the ever widening limits of our responsibilities; all barriers are being moved away. T h e world is in'need today, and we are in the position to supply that need for the real need of the world is Jesus Christ and we, who know Him, can feel the urge of His voice spurring us on to the dut3r before us. In this season of hate, turmoil, and distress, the mellowing, softening and healing power of the Christ must be made a reality through us. T h e world, to us, presents a strange picture. Here, we see incongruities caused by misunderstanding: there, we see dark blotches of hatred and anim o s i t y ; the dangerous red portending death and destruction. T h e Master Artist alone can bring - harmony, love and peace. W e must be the tools in the hands of the Master through which H e can bring His redeeming powers.

T h e r e is an indescribable charm in the fellow-ship of m e n ; an appeal to the finer sensibilities of the other fellow; a peep into a life that is truly wonderful for its possibilities, which remain dormant within because of the cold receptivity of the spirit without. But under the thawing, genial atmosphere of fellowship the latent talent buds and unfolds into all the glory of well developed manhood. W h a t joy in the discovery of the unknown. W h a t sympathy in the bonds of mutual endeavor and pleasure. W e , the Knickerbocker Society, cherish the past for a noble heritage; we glory in the present for the challenge which it offers, and welcome the future for the wonderful possibilities which it unfolds. It is ours to hold high the banner of progress; to enter the realms of the u n k n o w n ; to conquer for God and man. W h a t higher motive can be given to mortals? Loyal to the Ruby and Black which ever pledges allegiance to the Orange and Blue, the Knickerbocker Society has been and will be an answer to those who desire true hearted fellowship, to those who pursue knowledge, and to those who cherish the best in life.

Secret Service The Hope College Dramatic Club has given many enjoyable plays since its organization in 1917, but in presenting William Gillette's""Secret Service" it staged one of the greatest and most successful productions in its history.

MicKigan Debating League Debates As the colleges of the state have organized a competitive basis for athletics in the M. I. A. A. and for oratory in the M. O. L., so they have now, also organized for debating in a M. D. L. This year a tentative arrangement had to be made, since a couple colleges were unable to enter; but next year a permanent M. D. L. will function. T h e proposed league is to be directed by the M. O. L. officers, which will practical!)' unite both leagues into one body, and result in greater efficiency. All the colleges in the M. O. L. will be members of the M. D. L. Under the tentative arrangement this year two triangular debates were held. T h e question debated was, "Resolved, T h a t the United States should immediately enter the League of Nations." Ypsilanti, Olivet, and Albion formed the southern triangle, and the northern triangle was composed of Kalamazoo, Hope, and Alma. Ypsilanti Normal won in the southern division, and Kalamazoo College took the laurels in the northern. In the finals between these two institutions Kalamazoo was victorious, and thereby, won state championship. Hope took second in the northern triangle. Simon Heemstra, Jerry De Vries, and Harvey De Wcerd supported the affirmative against Alma College. This debate was staged on the home platform, and the affirmative won by a two to one decision. T h e men who debated on the negative against Kalamazoo College were Julius Van Eenam, Irwin Borgman, and Jack Prins. Altho these men put up a good fight, the strong and well-trained Kalamazoo team won by an unanimous decision. One other debate was scheduled this year with W e s t e r n State Normal of Kalamazoo. A different question was debated, namely, "Resolved, T h a t the United States should cancel the debts due her by her Allies in the World W a r . " Hope was represented in this debate by Alfred Stevenson, John Ver Meulen, and Gerrit Wesselink on the affirmative team and John Dethmers, Leonard De Moor, and Richard Van Farowe on the negative. T h e latter group went to Kalamazoo and met defeat, while the former team debated at home and took the laurels by a two to one decision. A plan to unite our oratorical league and debating league into one organization is being worked out to be inaugurated next year. Under this system there will be more concentration on everj^ phase in the forensic line, since there will be but one management directed by our coach. Dr. J. B. Nykerk. T h e prospects for winning teams will be very good, and a schedule including debates with leading institutions in this section of the country is already assured.

Pi Kappa Delta The national organization on the campus known as thq G A M M A C H A P T E R , P I K A P P A D E L T A . H O P E C O L L E G E , is still y o u n g - but The membership now totals thirty-eight and it is steadily growflourishing. ing. This organization is a national one, having chapters in all of the larger Colleges and Universities. It is made up of recognized orators and debaters in the United States. It is a great honor to be a member of this organization and to wear its emblem, the golden key set with precious stones, differing according to the degree. T w o of the members of the class of 1924 hold the degree of highest distinction in debating. Hope is proud of this great organization on the campus and we hope that the organization may be a means to inculcate more of the debating and oratorical spirit into the students of Hope. In future years, this organization will be the instrument which will control the forensic activities of our Alma Mater. May she hold that standard high and keep old Hope in the lead.

T h e Orange and Blue Proudly we wave Hope's banner, Orange and Blue; T o her fair, shining symbols We'll e'er be true ; Orange for royalty, Blue for true loyalty Fling out our banner f r e e ! And sing out anew:—

CHORUS—

Orange and Blue ! T o them we'll e'er be t r u e ! We'll keep them flying. Forever flying. Together cheer and shout! (Yea ! Hopeites). Orange and Blue! Raise the song anew. We'll ever hail our glorious Orange and Blue!

Like her we show the Orange, Proud let us be! Children of Alma Mater. Royal are w e ! Blue is the trust of youth. Honor, and love, and truth. So let us wear them both. T h a t all men may see:—

Of life's unfolding pathway, litle we know, Yet, over all the journey Hope's light shall glow. W h e n sinks the closing day. Over the fading way. Then wejshall see its ray, Fair glory bestow.

Sale Prices W e are living in a daj'' of economic industrialism. T h e old statement, "If you can build a better house, write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better rat trap than your neighbor, the world will make a beaten p a t h w a y to your door," is more true today than ever before. People are always looking for something new and better and are willing to pay the price. T h e question they ask is not, " H o w much does it cost?" but " H o w good is it?" - O n the latter depends the demand, success, and sale price of the article. T h e business and professional world is going to throw out to each one of us the same challenge, "Show us something better than we possess and we will accept; if less, we will reject." And the time is not far distant when we as students will be ready to go out into the world and sell our services.- It matters little w h a t profession or business we enter into, we will be successful only as we are able to sell our services. If we make our services the best "the world will make a beaten pathway to O U R door", even though we work in an obscure place. T h e question that will be asked us is not, " H o w much do you know about many things?" but " H o w well do you know one thing?" T h a t is the acid test to be applied to our services. W h a t will be the sale price of your services? D o you realize that as you perform or fail in your daily college duties you are determining the answer? The price depends upon your willingness to really serve and the knowledge and facts you are acquiring that are really saleable. Too much athletics, too many social functions, too many outside student activities, and we may even say too much study may lower the sale price of your services. T r y to get a thorough and complete knowledge of one certain thing and then add to that as much general knowledge as you can. Cultivate poise and polish. Learn the art of appreciation. T r y to know and understand your fellow students. So apply and train yourself in college that when the time comes for you to sell your services, you will have a substantial contribution to make to the world, for which you can demand a good price; but do not forget that the price 3rou receive may be the satisfaction found in service, happiness in Life, or honor and praise for work well done, as well as money.

T h e AncKor " T h e printed page is one of the world's great blessings." W h e t h e r or not this can be said of every printed page in existence, we have, at least, tried to make it true concerning Hope's printed p a g e — T H E A N C H O R . A school paper has thrust upon it certain heavy responsibilities which we often overlook. By means of its editorials it can set the standards of college life. It is the voice thru which the college makes itself heard to the outside world. It is our spokesman to the other student bodies of the world. W e will be judged by w h a t our paper says. T h e Spirit of Hope—knowledge, love, service,—is w h a t we have endeavored to instill into our Anchor in such a way that the colorless printed page m i g h t gain a warmth and vividness which would be reflected in our college life. W e have encouraged the student body to express their own ideas and ideals thru the Student Forum and a lively discussion and exchange of ideas has been the result. T h e Literary Supplement has been an innovation this past year. Realizing that our weekly paper alone did not permit sufficient development of the literary talent in the students, we introduced this book of short stories, poems, essays, and similar literary productions to be issued three times during the school year. T h e Supplement has been a great success and we entertain bright hopes for its future. Financially this has been a triumphant year. T h e present staff assumed the administration with a slight debt, but we are relinquishing it with a balance in our favor. T h e Business Management deserves full credit for this work. Our aim in all that we have done has been a bigger and better Hope, realizing that The Anchor was a powerful medium thru which this could be accomplished.

W e believe that we realize in part, of what \ alue this book will be to its possessor in the future. H o w many pleasant memories, how many happy faces and kind deeds will be recalled by a perusal of its pages ! On our part it has been a pleasure to assume the responsibility of producing this 1923 M I L E S T O N E . W e wish to thank the Auxiliary Staff and the Junior Class for their helpfulness. But we realize that without the kindly aid of business men and friends not so closely connected with our student life, the success of this M I L E S T O N E would have been impossible. Also to the faculty and students who afforded literary material and subscribed for the Milestone, we extend our thanks. W e hope that we have been successful in giving you a book which fulfills its purpose, and one which marks a victorious M I L E S T O N E in your career at Hope. T H E MILESTONE STAFF.

A Message From A n Alumnus T o His College The great W o r l d W a r had its good as well as its bad side. It caused a housecleaning in many an institution, whether business, educational or otherwise. In most cases the necessity of a thorough overhauling had never even been dreamed of. Dust had collected in many a forgotten corner. It was a period wherein there was a constant weighing of the merits of much that had arisen theretofore with no preconceived purpose or plan, a sifting out of much that had proved to be of no real value, and a submission to a real refining process of that which remained. No longer did mere age prove to be either a necessary or a sufficient condition for the existence of much that w a s in evidence. Educational institutions owe it to themselves as well as to their supporters to see that this war experience is constantly repeated. In the language of Pope, we should "Be not the first by whom the new are tried, Nor yet the last to lay the old aside." This couplet expresses to me that which is most desired in the plan of action of a college or a university. For it expresses the spirit of progressive conservatism which should imbue the alumni of Hope as they watchfully note her welfare and progress. W e , as alumni, recognize that we are now in contact with w h a t is in many respects a greatly changed and a fast changing world. W e trust that Hope will ever continue to measure up to the best of the new standards without losing hold on those vitamines which are absolutely necessary for life and which m u s t always continue to be a part of Hope's sustenance if she is to continue true to the faith, both of her founders and of those who have watched so zealously and painstakingly over her to the present day.

T ribute There is a victory which is Hope's. Her athletes tread in stately march under triumph's arches. Her sons and daughters mount the forensic platform, proclaim in majestic sweetness, messages of heart and mind, and then descend, enshrouded by the glory of success. Music emanates from her every corridor, flowing forth profusely in melodious strains. And yet these do not constitute the real victory which is Hope's. Here is a group of sturdy pioneers blazing their way through forests and swamps. They push forward in eagerness, ever praying and praising God. W e s t w a r d they turn to the hills of Michigan, to the primitive forests of nature. However, it is not their mode of living to wander aimlessly about— Nomads, never! They suffer for physical nourishment, they yearn for spiritual. Oh, for a school! They toil to build their homes, but they would rather use for their canopy the great out-of-doors than neglect the educational advancement of their sons and daughters. And so arises "My anchor of Hope for this people in the future." T h u s Hope is in herself a vicory—the successful culmination of an earnest people's desires. Today, also, we see a victorious Hope. The ideal of her founders is being realized. Steadily she glows, constantly she grows. She takes her place in human advancement in a decisive way. Young souls find in her a means of stretching out toward a great service. Ah, that is the part she plays, humble thought it may be—that of directing young lives into channels of usefulness, and through God, lifting souls to-God. T h a t was the cherished ambitior. of those noble forerunners of Hope. T h a t is her victory. R. V. F. '24.

Joh n H. L. Schouten, CoacK Another year has closed in the annals of the Athletic history of Hope. W e look back over the accomplishments of the past year, and in both victory and defeat, we see the untiring efforts of Jack to produce the best results possible. Efforts, which at times seemed to have been spent for naught, but in the end their value was plainly seen in teams ever worthy of upholding the name of Hope. It has been clue mainly to Jack that physical exercise has become an important part of the girls curriculum, as well as that of the fellows, and the interest they have shown in return has well rewarded his efforts. The Freshmen course in Physical Training has placed the Hope students on a par with those of the universities, where such training is a requirement. Interest in interclass sports has been of the keenest, showing that the student body as a whole, is taking a larger and more extensive interest in athletics than ever before. A new school year will again be here, and with it Jack. A greater athletic year than ever is undoubtedly in store for Hope.

Football The 1922 season of Football was the most successful one since football has been a major sport on the campus. W i t h eight members of the preceeding year's squad returned, and with the arrival of several new candidates who had played on high school teams, the prospects of having a first class team were the best ever afiforded Coach Schouten. W i t h but two weeks to whip the men into form before the first game, Tack worked ceaselessly to gain that end, and although not as polished as it might have been, had a longer training period been possible, the team was one for Hopeties to be proud of. It was not a team to boast of in size, but rather one which made up for that feature in speed, cleverness, and fight. The opening game was played in Grand Rapids, against the Junior College eleven. The day turned out to be one of those fall days which ducks love so much, and Ramona Athletic Park, where the game was to be played, was wet and muddy, maki ng it exceedingly hard for either team to play in their regular style. Junior College, with a team outweighing Hope's twenty pounds to the man, went into the game thinking they were going to have an easy time drubbing their opponents. They soon learned differently, however, and it was only after much consistent effort that they were able to put over the only counter of the game in the second quarter. From then on the game was played on an even basis as to merits, and ended with Hope in possession of the ball on Junior's 35-yard line. The following week Hope traveled to Big Rapids to play Ferris Institute. Rain was again the menu for the day, and the game once started, it became evident to all that a royal battle was to be waged. Neither side seemed to have much advantage and the first half ended 0-0. The second half was much the same, neither team being able to put the ball over the line. Soon the whistle blew. Hope was in possession of the ball and the score remained the same as when the game was begun. T w o weeks later Ferris came to Holland for a return game. Fxtensive and careful training was evident in both teams soon after the game started. Darkness was a great handicap to both teams and fumbles were much in evidence. It was during the third quarter that Hope scored the only points of the game by a touchback. The game ended with gloom hanging heavily over the heads of both teams, but the gloom over the Hope eleven was of a far different nature than that of the Ferris warriors. Hope's football season closed with a fitting battle against the strong Kazoo Reserves. Terrific line plunges and clever end runs featured the game, especially noteworthy being the thirty-yard run by Kazoo's left-halfback for the only touch-down of the game. Although beaten 6-0, Hope did not feel disgrace but rather pride in holding a team of such high calibre to so low a score. RECORD Sat. Sat. Sat. Sat.

Reserve Basketball Team One of the most important factors in making the past basketball season at Hope a success, was the strong reserve team. W i t h a few of last year's men as a nucleus and the addition of several new high school stars, a reserve team was organized which proved to be the best ever produced at Hope. Their record of nine victories and only four defeats gives ample evidnce of th high calibre of the team. The reserve schedule opened with a victory over the Franklin Rayls, of Grand Rapids, to be followed by another victory over an independent team from Muskegon, two weeks later. W i t h the arrival of the Christmas holidays a series of games was booked with four of the fastest independent teams in the northern part of the Southern Penninsula of Michigan. Small floors proved to be a great handicap for the team, and the first two games with the Ludington Eagles and the Manistee National Guard were both lost by one point, but only after raging battles. Traverse City was then visited and the L u t h e r a n s of that place given a more than t w o to one defeat. T h e following night the team played the much reputed Cadillac "Y," but the effects of the three previous games was beginning to show, and the players were unable to withstand the pace of their fresher opponents, receiving their third defeat of the trip. T h e team returned to wage warfare with the Grand Rapids Bethanys on New Year's Eve. but the jinx was still seemingly with them and they were forcd once more to bow to defeat. From then on the reserves refused to accept the short end of the scoring, and they were not beaten again during the remainder of the season. T h e strong Holland High team was then played and defeated by one point. T h e Allegan Independents, the Muskegon Bethnays, the Zion Independents, and the Grand Rapids W a l k e r s were then taken on in order, and defeated by still more comfortable margins. As a grand finale to their successful season the reserves once more defeated the Holland High team, thus having won six of their nine victories consecutively. T h e entire Reserve Team will return, thus affording a splendid basis for next year's team. Several of the players still have two or three years of collge activity ahead of them, assuring the well founded hopes for the basketball teams of Hope in the next few j'ears.

L a c k of practice, both in fielding and batting, was m u c h in evidence, and a l t h o u g h " D y k e " pitched s u p e r b ball with " B e a n s " behind the bat, the team w a s f o r c e d to take a 10-4 defeat.

Hope Preparatory Department It is now 1948 and where is Prep? Prep with all its loyal devotion to everything worthy of attainments, and its spirit of good will and fellowship both in work and play? To be sure, it is still there growing in that devotion and fellowship. Yet, can anything exceed that " p e p p y " Prep year of 1923? Well do we remember how, as those pioneers of old, we were bound together in common ties of friendship striving for the same common cause to make ourselves known to the world, earnestly endeavoring to give to the world the best that we had, that the best might come back to us. 1 hat basketball team that worked so persistently to establish its name in basketball history. A h ! yes, it won many games and given greater opportunities, w h a t might it not have done! Even the girls tried to organize a team, but unavoidable circumstances caused them to cheerfully resign and give the aid of their presence and efficient rooting to those sturdy masculine basketeers. Credit is due their energetic efforts in spurring on this team to victor}^. Then, too, that lively debating team which traveled to Allegan, accompanied by loyal Prep support thru the cruel roads of w i n t e r ! W h a t cared they for six "blowouts," an extremely disastrous trip, and defeat accompanying them home? Cheerful losers they, and only inspired to try again. They say that the reason they lost was that Allegan had the better t e a m ! Surely, lack of "pep" could never have been the cause. Prep's oratorical talent has nothing to be ashamed of. W a t c h our orators make the next Glory Day for Hope College! Surely, you ask about Class and Prep parties? Those were hilarious times when everybody turned out in his best "bib and tucker." Yea and nay. Clothes didn't count then, but a prevailing friendly spirit and enthusiasm did ! And they were there! All in all with care-free "Prepites" and "home made" eats to back it, every party was declared a good time.

"P" "R" "E" "P"

for Precaution for Reputation. for Education for Probation.

May every " P r e p " student have precaution in maintaining the reputation of his education so that it may not be necessary for him to go on probation.

Minerva Society "Minerva, to thee, we will ever be true, W e will love thee, till death do us part, W e will honor thy name, we will e'er spread the fame Of Minerva, so dear to our hearts. This is, indeed, the sentiment of every member of the Minerva society. Minerva is dear to us, as it has been to many in the past. This is the oldest girls' society on the campus, and many have come to and left her shrine in the one score and seven years of her existence. The preparatory girls realize that benefits derived, and close friendships and a spirit of good fellowship created in the society, cannot be obtained in the other school activities. Therefore, in return, the girls pledge their loyalty and devotion to Minerva, and do their best to live up to her high ideals. OFFICERS Fall

Meliphone Societ}) 1 he Meliphone Society, the oldest society on the campus, has experienced its most successful year since the war. Starting the year with eighteen old members under the leadership of Adrian Daane, as president, eight new members were voted into the society and the work began in earnest. Nothing short of the best literary accomplishment was the ideal of each member for the society, which was clearly demonstrated in the weekly programs. Meliphone does not strive alone for literary accomplishments but also for social polish. At the beginning of the year the annual stag, and a joint meeting with the Minerva Society were held. Much was done by way of improving our hall during the past year and as a result, great pride is taken by each member in the general condition of the Society and its weekly meeting place.

T w e n t y - f i v e Dollars the lowest price for a quality watch The difference between a watch made to sell and one made to run cannot be seen with the untrained eye. Gruen Watches could be made to sell as cheaply as any, but Gruen quality, Gruen standards of craftsmanship and fine watch construction, cannot be put into a watch which retails below twenty-five dollars. When you buy a Gruen Watch at twenty-five dollars you pay the minimum price for a quality watch, and you get with it, at no extra cost, a name which stands for dependability, artistic design and lasting satisfaction.

W h e n the Franklin Life Insurance Company was organized in 1884, the motive of its founders was to render practicable the highest ideals of life insurance. H o w well they succeeded is evidenced by a most unique record. In the forty years of its existence this c o m p a n y has never lost a dollar of investment f u n d s or interest thereon, nor closed a year with a dollar of either in default. It now has more than $135,000,000.00 of i n s u r a n c e in force, with a legal reserve of nearly thirteen millions, and assets in excess of fourteen and one half millions. For twenty years T h e Franklin has been represented in Holland, Michigan, by Mr. W . J. Olive whose record of faithful service to his clients in arranging their insurance affairs to the best advantage equals the company's record in protecting their interests.

i^ramr The goal of every ambitious man and firm is typified in the rapid growth of the Jahn & Oilier Engraving Company—the

versal esteem in which their art and plates are held by the large national advertisers —and the enviable reputation for prompt deliveries which they enjoy. Delivering this same high quality and careful personal supervision to schools has built up for us the largest college and high school annual engraving busi' ness in America—400 books yearly. Thirty thousand square feet of floor space (4floors)and over two hundred and fifty skilled employees are required to meet the constant demand for commercial photographs, art, color process plates and photo engraving (one complete floor is devoted to color process work). Intelligent supervision of all work by many skillful office service men eliminates your
