AGIC. L L I T E R S these! There is something in Old Roman Numerals which casts a spell about one.
Ihey speak of a world that has long been with the eternities, never more to be known among human kind; and yet they speak of a world whose only proper name is Grandeur,—"The Grandeur That Was Rome." And both the Antiquity and the Greatness enthrall. Magic Letters they are, also, which measure time in its flight. Nothing else seems so fit for the Baptism of the Years. Once to every year this magic symbolism is given, never the same, and henceforth down the long trail from " I n the Beginning" to "World Without E n d " each year marches with its lettered symbol on its scutcheon.— the horizons of the future beckon. Never before has M G M X X X greeted Hope: in this Milestone M G M X X X

The Student Council is the one organization on the Campus representative of the whole student body. Its duties extend to all matters concerning the studentry of the College. It solves problems and carries out duties as the occasion arises. The Council is composed of nine m e m b e r s : the president of the Senioi Class, who automatically becomes president of the Council, and two representatives f r o m each class, elected at the beginning of each school year. The Council functions as an organized representative group, whose duty is to promote all student activities. The annual Tug of War, Freshmen Rules and theii observance. Cap Night Celebration, the Honor Code, and the Point System are some of the events and problems in charge of the Student Council. 1 he Oratorical and Debating activities are also financed through the Council.

"Now as grave and reverend Seniors Smile ive o er the verdant past." Rather a sad one—but a real smile. The sadness lies in the thought of leaving friends and surroundings grown more dear than we could have imagined. There is regret, too, for the chances thrown away and ihe time lost during those flying verdant years. 1 he smile is for \ictories well earned and for defeats well lost. A smile not quite as confident as one of four years ago, but just as significant of happy ideals and probably a bit sweeter and a little more serene. Just another Senior Class leaving just another College, with just another sad farewell and just some other reminiscences? No, not just another College—but Hope College—and all having caught at least a part of the famed ''Hope Spirit." And it is not what we have done here so much as what we shall take away that will count in the world. OFFICERS President.

\ ery n e a i l \ foui years have elapsed since we first made our appearance on the campus, as Freshman in September of 1925. They have been filled to overflowing; with activities of all kinds: good. bad. and indifferent, we suppose. Of course we are sorry for the times when we have failed to do our best, and for the opportunities of which we have not made the most, but we love rather to think of the good and fine things we can carry with us, in memory, during the years to come. Not least among these memories will be the hours spent together in our S. G. A. meetings. These monthly gatherings have meant a great deal to all of us. Girls who were merely classmates before are now called friends, friends in whom we have a special interest. \ ^ e want to know what the years will bring for each and every one ol us and are making plans whereby we, the girls of the Class of '29, will always remain the true friends we are today. That is why we are thankful f o r Hope College and the Senior Girls Association. OFFICERS

In accordance with established tradition, the Senior men organized themselves in the past fall as the Hope K u r f e w K l u b or the H.K.K. as it is called. The purpose of (he organization as followed out by this year's H.K.K. is twofold â&#x20AC;&#x201D; firstly, to promote and maintain a feeling of fellowship and friendliness between the Senior men, and secondly, to instill in the minds of the lower classmen, particularly the Freshmen, a respect for the dignity of Seniors and for the traditions of the school. We feel that we have been singularly successful in promoting these aims. Ibis year's body, departing f r o m the age-worn tradition of derbies and canes, provided themselves with campus coats made up in the College colors. This f e a t u r e has served to distinguish the Senior men f r o m the other male students on the campus. 1 he H.K.K. has fostered several social gatherings during the year and has proven itself a live-wire organization in every respect.

CLARENCE DIEPIIOUSE A L V I N V A M I E R BI SH
Before I knew your calm majestic strength, Before you held me high up in your arms, I was a stranger to your sovereign grace; I only knew the shadow of your charms. But looking f r o m your turret's highest ledge My heart became the bee upon a flower; The honey that 1 held was just to know That 1 was standing in a music bower. The wind became a thousand silver notes, My heart became a pulsing set of chimes; And where none but the wind has ever played I caught a melody of songs and rimes. P. A. E., '30.
CARL V A N L E N T E
The Class of 1930 came back last fall fewer in number, but as f a i t h f u l to their motto, Co-operation and Progress, as ever. This year its members have been leaders in all the activities on the campus, and have proved themselves worthy of Hope. Only one year of active life on the campus remains, a year during which we try to produce as many results as possible. On the work of our past college depends the success of the next year, so '"live your best and act your best and your best today; for today is the sure preparation for tomorrow and all the tomorrows that follow."

S O P H O M O R E CLASS 1 lie Class of 3] has finished its second year of College life. A glorious year of pep. enthusiasm and excitement, it has been, our first chance to do our bit for Hope on our own initiative. It has not been a year of great achievements, but rather, we hope, one of great beginnings. We have finisl^d one-half of our college life, the half where we stand back and enjoy the achievements of our upper classmen. The other half lies before us, the half of our leadership anil our accomplishments. Next year we shall be upper classmen. It is our desire that as such we may be respected and admired. May we be true leaders in all that Hope stands for. May the (.lass of >1 be the greatest class to leave this College, not only greatest in numbers, but greatest in our contributions to Hope. In the last year we have gained in self reliance and in the knowledge of the use of intellectual tools. We have advanced in seriousness and sincerity. We have resolved to make each year steps in advance for ourselves and for Hope. "Let us then be up and doing With a heart for any f a t e ; Still achieving, still pursuing. Learn to labor and to wait." OFFICERS

"Aw do it right this time — when I turn the crank you push that d o f u n n y on the wheel up, step on the third whatchit on the floorboard, and p u m p the •— oh you know, the jigger on the dash — it's easy." Perhaps these instructions would have nothing to do with College life in the form presented, but such seemed the orders to the Freshman class. When they got started, however, all became plain and thus their journey began. A f t e r a few stops f o r class parties and the usual get-togethers, they resumed their first year tour. Few bumps were hit but one mud hole stopped their course for a few days. This did not dampen their hopes very much as they "came b a c k " during basketball season. Their athletes are good and they hope to see some of them on the varsity team next year. Some of the members became interested in the Glee Clubs, more of them joined various societies, others became members of the Y. M. and Y. W. During this trip they were a loyal group, staying together and ever ready to do their best. Now that the first tour of the Class of '32 is almost over and they can translate the above orders as "Aw do it right now — when I turn the crank, push the spark on the steering wheel up, step on the starter on the floorboard, and pull the choke which is on the dash — it's easy," they are ready to return to start on their Sophomore trip.

With the beginnig of the new school year, the College High School officially took its place among the schools of the state, no longer just a p r e p a r a t o r y school, but also a training school for the students of the college. Also, to make it possible for more students to avail themselves of this splendid opportunity for obtaining a secondary education, it was decided to abolish tuition fees. The effect of this was as expected and there has been a marked increase in the number of students, which in turn has tended to strengthen the school in every way. What are some of the advantages of attending the College High School? First of all. there is a well trained faculty of teachers, each of them specialists in his own teaching subjects and at the same time imbued with a desire to see every student derive the maximum benefit f r o m his school work. There is also a strong religious atmosphere present. Every day is begun with devotional exercises, attendance at which is compulsory of all students; Bible study is required of all students; and all classroom work is directed toward equipping the student not only mentally but also morally and spiritually. In addition to these advantages there are those that come f r o m the contacts the students have among themselves. Both the boys and the girls have their literary societies. There are also the Y. M. and the Y . W. C. A's. Furthermore, there is the work in the gymnasium, which is eagerly participated in by all the students. So we come to the end of another year and it is a pleasure to review its happenings. Many new friendships have been formed, many valuable lessons have been learned, many rich experiences have been lived through. Our only regret is that the year has been so short.

MINERVA The Minerva Society lias again come to the close of another year, during which her banner of Loyalty and Truth were lifted high. Loyalty and Truth have been the ideals of Minerva ever since its was organized in 1896. The Minerva Society is the oldest society on Hope's Campus. The enrollment of Minerva is only eleven, but the high ideals and noble aspirations of those before us have not existed in vain. The spirit of Minerva is so planted in the hearts of the Minerva Sisters thai they are ever ready to pledge: "Minerva, to thee we will ever be true. Our love and allegiance we bring, We will ever be true to thy noble ideals, While thy praises exalting sing." OFFICERS

It continues to develop literary talent, refinement and culture; to create fellowship and offer wholesome recreation. Another year has been added to the illustrious existence of Meliphone Society d u i i n g which it has lived up to all it has ever stood for. Almost every new student has joined us in helping to make the year the success that it has been, and with us they sing: "We always cheer whene'er we hear That name known f a r and wide.

HOPE H I G H SCHOOL DEBATING This was the first year in which the College High School had membership in the Michigan Debating League. Hence, debating was a new venture for them for the team had to be chosen from students who had never debated before. This fact, notwithstanding, the High School can point to a successful record of two victories and two defeats. All the debates were against teams with much experience in debating and in every contest the College High School made a creditable showing. The proposition for debate was, ''Resolved: that a Federal Subsidy for the Development of an American Merchant Marine would be a wise National Policy." The first two debates, on the affirmative side of the question were lost to the (rabies High School and Coopersville High School. The two negative debates with Comstock High School and Lake Odessa High School were won. 1 he personnel of the College High School team were: Deane Knoll. John Eckwielen and Henry Kuizenga. with Kathryn Benedict as alternate. The debating team was ably coached by Mr. Lawrence E. Vredevoogd of the Senior Class of Hope College.
SHIPS OF YESTERDAY We know some ships, to ply their trade, Must nose around the plumb lines of the deep While others feel the touch of clouds And are familiar with the storm clouds keep. In spite of all these myriad ships That a modern wand has brought before our gaze We are not loath to read the lore, But seek to breathe the spirit of Viking Days. We cannot see the Grecian Galley Sailing along the coast with airy grace Nor can we see a Viking ship Manned by the sturdy of the Norseman race. Nor Richard's fleet decked for crusade With banners ol the Lion proudly borne And waving high above the band Whose zeal could most eclipse a golden morn. Our ears are not allowed to hear 1 he flap or Norman sail or dip of oar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rich music to the ears of men Whose wild, adventurous hearts loved to explore. But drinking in the vivid tales. We catch the splendor of the briny spray. And fairly feel those rocking waves That tossed the daring ships of yesterday. P. A. E.. '30

Y. M . C. A. I he is the only organization on the campus to the membership of which every Hope man is heartily welcome. The reason is not hard to find: this welcome is universal because the appeal of its purpose is universal. That purpose is to help every man on the campus to that fullest realization of himself which is the result of a living fellowship with Jesus Christ. In order to more efficiently carry out this purpose, the " Y " organization is built around a cabinet of twelve members, four elected and the remainder appointed, which constitutes the administrative body of the group. The cabinet meets every week to take up whatever problems arise in connection with the work and to seek guidance from Him whose we are and whom we serve. The heart of the \ . M. C. A. is in the weekly meetings, lasting only an hour, at seven o'clock on Tuesday evenings. These meetings are of a distinctly religious nature, but they are not concerned with vague speculations about abstruse theological questions. Rather they seek through frank discussion and open-minded thought to settle the practical problems of college life. The " Y " is wholeheartedly in sympathy with Christ's injunction, "Freely ye have received; freely give. To that end " Y " men and girls carry on Sunday School work in outlying communities about Holland. Gospel Team work is open to anyone who feels that he has homething "too good to keep ' and seeks opportunity to pass his experience on to others. In conjunction with the Y. W., the Y. M. endeavors to help the new student during his first few critical days of College Life. An Information Desk during Registration Week and a Freshman "Get-Acquainted P a r t y " at the Lake were part of last Fall's program. The same idea is carried out by holdin";, some time durin^ the year, the annual Prayer Week. Its purpose is to confront every Hopeite with the challenge of a Christian Life. It is the sincere wish of the Cabinet that everyone who reads these words may. by the memories and associations which center around " Y , " be moved to face again the old, old question; "What then shall I do with Jesus who is called C h r i s t ? " The stand of the "Y is too well known to require elaboration: "Jesus Christ is King of of this Campus. Will you submit to H i m ? "

Y . W . C. A . "Y"' has sometimes been called the "Church on the Campus." Because it recognizes the glorious privilege of the "more abundant life" which can be had through fellowship with Christ, it strives to assist the girl in her religious life, and to train for Christian leadership. Every Tuesday evening an hour is set aside for meetings of a distinctly worshipful nature where problems of vital importance are discussed in a friendly wav as an aid in Christian living. The joy of giving is experienced through the sending of Christmas boxes and 'lie raising of f u n d s f o r maintaining Hope Hostel in India. Chris'ts command to "Go Ye is answered by consecrated girls who are sent to neighboring towns as "Girls Gospel Teams,' to assist in spreading the message of Salvation. Prayer Week this year was under the able leadership of Dr. John Vander Meulen, and was felt to be unusually successful. Several declared for the first time their love for Christ, while many others reconsecrated their lives to His service. ^ believes in the social side of life. The Freshmen girls are made welcome by Big Sisters. Beach parties, basketball, and a Japanese tea have helped to promote friendships and give pleasure. Next year the girls will have the inspiration of a new room in Hope's Memorial Chapel, which will be furnished largely through gifts from alumni friends. As the Church cannot exist without the Christian College, so our College cannot exist without the "Church on the Campus."

THE STUDENT VOLUNTEER BAND The Student Volunteer group which meets on Hope's Campus once a week is a small but nevertheless active body. Its main purpose is to keep alive that inspirational fire of service in the heart of each individual member. Every student belonging to this group has as his or her purpose â&#x20AC;&#x201D; "God willfi'g â&#x20AC;&#x201D; t o serve Christ in a foreign land just as soon as adequate preparation has been made in this country. The cry today is quality of preparation as well as quantity. The weekly meetings vary in nature, if there is a missionary home on furlough. he or she is asked to tell us of the work abroad, of the needs of that particular country as well as the opportunities for giving one's all to Christ. At various intervals during the year two or three volunteers go out to the churches to tell the young people of the church what the organization is all about. Hope College has sent out many students once members of this group who have represented the College courageously. They have spread abroad among the people ol other nations the knowledge of Hope s leader. Christ. This is a challenge to each student on the Campus. OFFICERS President

H O M E VOLUNTEERS Theodore Roosevelt once made a statement to the effect that even though a man can t very often make opportunities for himself, he can so prepare himself so as to he able to take advantage of opportunities when they do come. And in order to prepare ourselves for the opportunities which will come to us in our chosen work of the Gospel Ministry, we meet for an hour every Friday evening to discuss ways and means of better fitting ourselves for that great work. Discussion of the problems we shall have to face also makes up part of our program and in order to teach umore about these problems, ministers of wide experience have come to speak to us. These talks have always been of an educational and inspirational nature. In the Christian life we feel that the saying, "impression demands expression," holds true. We have received the impress of Christ on our lives and through our expression of our love and devotion for Him at our weekly meetings He has become more of a reality in our lives. OFFICERS

W O M E N ' S GOSPEL TEAM The Y. W. C. A. Gospel Team members earnestly strive to become better friends, not only of God. which is their constant aim. but of themselves, their comrades and their outside acquaintances. The aim of this group is to spread the joy of religion and to extend the gospel of Christ in every way possible, whenever and wherever opportunity offers. It is the desire of this group to mingle and make personal contacts with girls of surrounding High Schools or other groups of young people, that the standards of an ideal Christian Life may be made higher. Visits have been made to Hamilton, Zeeland. Overisel, Forest Grove, Saranac and Muskegon Heights, the teams having charge of the various young people : s organization meetings and the church services. The future months of the college year offer many more opportunities f o r service, and the girls are keenly interested in complying with these requests. The young women on the various teams find true joy and happiness in serving Christ by using their God-given talents to "count for Jesus." There is a real challenge to endeavor to grow physically, mentally, morally, and spiritually, constantly pressing on toward a full and richer life.

MEN'S GOSPEL T E A M Another successful year of Gospel Team work has passed. Teams of men have gone out f r o m Hope to the many outlying communities to share with others the blessings which they feel have come into their lives. The aim of the year's work has been primarily to show to the young people that there is very much in Christianity f o r young people. And while trying to make this fact known to other young folks, we of the Gospel Teams have found f o r ourselves even richer blessings for ourselves. Gospel Teams were sent during this year to the Sixth Reformed Church of Holland, to Middleville, to Caledonia, to Hamilton, to Fennville, to Saranac, to Byron Center, to Grand Haven, to Overiesel, to Forest Grove, and to Vriesland. To some of these places, two or more teams have been sent on different dates.

This year s group, although but five of its members are old members, has done fine work in retaining the club's reputation. This year the girls appeared frequently in Holland, gave several successful concerts in nearby towns, and made an extended concert tour through Illinois and Wisconsin. The girls and their director have received high praise for remarkably artistic performances. OFFICERS Director Accompanists

HOPE COLLEGE ORCHESTRA The College Orchestra experienced some difficulty in getting under way last Fall since Mr. Ritter, under whom such a fine orchestra was built up last year had left town. It is a mark of the strong interest existing in music on Hope's campus that the members of the orchestra labored indefatigably to keep the organization together and secure another director. Mr. Emmons is now acting in that capacity and the promises for a good year's work in orchestra look bright indeed. New music of a fitting type has been secured and rehearsals are enjoyed, the members profiting by the experience gained and in their ability to afford entertainment f o r college activities, for to be able to please with music is truly a gift that the world appreciates.
H O P E COLLEGE B A N D Shortly after school convened in the Fall, ths band was gotten together and an organization was undertaken. With the advent of the new officers, a very vigorous program was begun. Regul ar practices were instituted, and a leader was secured. The Seminary responded, providing this leader, and several lacking instruments as well. On the eve of Home Coming Day, November 9, the Band first appeared in its new sweaters. 1 he f u n d s for the purchase of these sweaters were raised by general contribution of students and faculty, and throught the sale of tags throughout the city of Holland. The students and townspeople responded in a very generous manner, so that sufficient money was raised to buy the sweaters and further, to start paying their leader. In view of the services rendered the school, the Student Council voted a grant of money to f u r t h e r assist in the payment of the leader. The progress of the institution as a whole has been remarkable. Last year it was a feeble, but growing group, while at the present time it is healthy and thriving. No small part of this is due to the activity of the leader, Nick Gosling, and to the intensive work of the president, Herman F. Laug. Director. Fresidenl Manager.

H O P E COLLEGE TRUMPETERS With the graduation last June of Miss Margaret Hondelink, the Hope Trumpeters ost their first leader. She had trained three girls who were the original members of I ie quaitette, and three others to take tneir places upon their graduation in 1927 and 192t). I his year the quartette is composed of four entirely different girls, two new ones and two who played last year. The quartette was an innovation in Western Michigan, and was warmly received. Because there are so few trumpet quartettes, there is very little music suitable for them, and Miss Hondelink wrote or adapted all the music used by the Hope Trumpeters in f o r m e r years. L nder her direction they worked for three years, playing in Holland and towns and cities in this vicinity, and gave a recital in Winants Chapel last May. This year the Hope Trumpeters have practised almost every day and have made several appearances. The Fourth 1 rumpeter will be graduated in June, but another girl will take her place, and the Hope Trumpeters will continue to "toot for Hope."

SMILIN' T H R O U G H On the three evenings of April 17. 18, 19. Carnegie Hall resounded with applause as the Class of 1929 presented its play, SMILIN' THROUGH, by Allan Langdon Martin. The cast, coached by Miss Gladys Presley of Grand Haven, showed the result of weeks of intensive training. A new feature in Senior plays was presented by this year's class by placing the matter of scenery and lighting effects, which helped greatly to make the play a success, into the hands of the Century Art Scenic Studios of Grand Rapids, Michigan. SMILIN' T H R O U G H was decided upon as the class play after many hours of deliberation and much investigation by a committee headed by Miss Martha Van Buren. Much credit must be given to them for their effort. CAST PROLOGUE Sarah

T H E AMATEUR DETECTIVE Miss Constance Darcy, "The Amateur Detective, sets out in pursuit of a man who has stolen a bag containing valuable securities f r o m the office of her father, a wealthy mine owner. She loses all trace of the thief near Tuxedobrook. Here, however, she finds her mother s f o r m e r school chum, Mrs. Delevan, in reduced circumstances. Constance assumes the disguise of an Irish waitress in Mrs. Delevan's Club House, and. as Nora 0 Brien, makes the tea room very popular, especially to Cruger Blainwood who becomes a frequent visitor. Through her aid also. Mr. Delevan realizes his dream of perfecting "Ozonia and renders himself famous. Meanwhile, the villain, Ralph Hastings, who was engaged to Fay Blainwood, makes love to pretty Mildred Delevan and plans to elope with her, but decides at the last moment that he prefers Nora. She, however, having discovered that the bag carried by Hastings is the one that had been stolen from her father, throws off her disguise and has Hastings arrested. The play ends with the announcement of " N o r a ' s " engagement to Cruger. The difficult title role was admirably sustained by Myra Ten Cate, ably supported by a cast of twenty members of the Drama Class. Much humor was provided throughout the play by the lugubrious sentiments of Susan, played by Anne Heyboer. the gay vivacity of Celeste, a French maid, played by Wilhelmina Walvoord. and the keen Irish witticisms of " N o r a . " Among the male characters, Bernard De Free proved himself to be a delightful lover, and Maurice Marcus shone as an ideal villain.

ORATORY Under Dr. J. B. Nykerk's supervision and most efficient coaching oratory has maintained itself as a most prominent activity at Hope. Hope's record in this very distinctive art is an enviable one. Our orators have three times achieved national honors as well as numerous district and state victories. At the last Michigan Oratorical League contest held at Alma College, Miss Alice Brunson presented her oration, "The Poet's Share," and Arthur Michmerhuizen spoke on "Ministering America." For the first time in several years, though our orators did honor to themselves and the school, old dame fortune saw fit to exclude Hope's representatives from the winning list. The college orators for both the men's and women's speakers are chosen each year at local contests, will have been selected f o r next year by the time this book is published. The women's contest for this year was scheduled for the sixth of May and the men s for the seventeenth of May. The winners of these respective contests will represent Hope at the next M.O.L. meet to be held at Calvin College.

T H E POET'S SHARE The world was new. The gods has issued an edict proclaiming the division of the earth among men. In response, first came the agriculturists who claimed the fertile lands Then came the merchants who desired the roads and seas; next the monks who chose the slopes suitable for vines. The noblemen came desiring woods and forests for game; and the kings, claiming bridges and defiles to expedite the collection of taxes. Last of all came the poet, but there was no land left; and the gods, in mercy, gave him instead the power to bring at will heaven down to earth. What a glorious gift this, the poet's share! What marvelous ability, the power to experience here and now the inward happiness, contentment and bliss assigned to heaven! And yet do we not all have the power the old legend allotted to the poet? Do not all of us possess the power to be completely and serenely happy, and to make others so? The poet breathes the same air we do, sees the same things, encounters the same everyday occurences and hardships, experiences the same emotions. True, his imagination, vivid and alert, and ever prompted by devotion to the beautiful and ideal, sublimes every common thing into the region of the aesthetic, and so creates a heaven on earth at will. But is imagination limited to poets alone? True, the poet has the gift of expressing the joy and inspiration he feels in beautiful, well-penned verses. But need we write poetry in order to inspire and help our fellowmen? Emerson said. "All men are poets at heart." Yes, we say, imagination has done as much to make the scientist, the inventor, the ruler, as it has the poet. Vision is the foundation on which has been built every great success; the basis of the simple contenlment or jubilant joy of the lowliest peasant or slave. There are few who have not the poet's g i f t ; few who may not learn to see things, not only as they are, but with
that spark of imagination that enables one to see the beautiful even in the ugly, the funny in the tragic, worth in the seemingly useless, the uncommon in the common. And if our lives are to be sources of joy to ourselves and inspirations to others, such vision must be cultivated. Napoleon said. "Imagination rules the world." Truly it does, and has from the beginning of time. When based on faith in the ideal, the good, and beautiful, and backed by energy and will-power, the power of imagination has lifted men from huts to mansions, from cabins to the White House, from despair and hopelessness to joy and victory. When fancy is prompted by discouragement, fear, discontent, jealousy, evil desires, or sinful thoughts, it ever has debased and held men to the ground. The power and influence of imagination is amazing. There is no person in the world whom it fails to affect. If there is one who bemoans his lack of imagination, and pictures himself hopelessly incapable of humor, foresight, and vision, he proves its very existence and strength in his life by the vividness and power of the wretched picture of himself which his self-depreciation and discouragement paint. Yes. imagination does rule the world. Its strength is definite and undeniable. But unless we make it our servant, we shall become its slave. There is a tendency for all to live passively — to take things as they come, and let them strike us as the moment's mood may dictate. Only seldom do we really exercise our powers of thought and judgment and our common sense. And, as a result, the truth of things is hidden in a maze of feelings, petty worries, and hastily made conclusions. How many days we spoil by brooding over and magnifying some trifling blunder on which we have placed undue importance! How many times we have fretted and wasted precious time and strength on problems that might with propriety be settled by the "tossing of a coin"! How often, wearied by the work and worries of our everyday life, have we not felt that only we are tired and troubled, that fate has thrust upon our weary backs the brunt and burden of the world's most crushing woes! How many now are dwarfing all their chances to rise and grow, by harboring and nursing in their souls an overwhelmingly vivid picture of themselves, as less original, less capable, less talented and personally pleasing than their associates! How many others, though they may not realize it. are ruining all their chances f o r happiness because they feel themselves too clever, too superior, too dignified to mingle with and glory in their fellows! Imagination! Oh how much pain and unhappiness we allow it to create! Imagination forgetting truth, hiding truth, ignoring truth — this it is which makes us wretched slaves, and makes our lives mere cruel existences. But there is another type of imagination, which, based on knowledge and honest consideration of truth and fact, is one of life s greatest gifts and greatest helps to joyf u l . enthusiastic living. It is the type that led Abraham Lincoln, filled with strength of purpose, to the presidency and gave him. when a nation s crushing and heart-rending burdens weighed him down, his wellknown. saving sense of humor. It is the type that drew Columbus across forbidding seas to an unknown world. Imagination founded on a proper sense of proportion — founded on the power to recognize at once a thing's importance — brings about a sense of humor, yes, the ability to see the sunny side of things. Imagination backed by thorough knowledge of
Page Our Hundred
T H E
M I L E S T O N
a situation, and impelled by a desire to better or to make use of that situation, is the substance of discovery and invention. Imagination based on the love of beauty capacitates a person f o r the fullest joys received f r o m deep appreciation of nature and the arts, and enables one to see the beauty in the plain and the otherwise uncomely. Imagination based on Christ's principle of love for all mankind creates in us the power of perfect understanding of associates, and intelligent sympathy and helpfulness and kindness toward all. Imagination based on self-knowledge and an honest appreciation of one's talents and capabilities, makes possible a vision of the place and means that they may be best employed. Imagination based on energy, ambition, and selfconfidence sees victory and success through failure and defeat; founded on faith in the power of good, sees hope beyond the blackest hour. Such imagination is of the type that may create for us a heaven on earth. If imagination is to make our lives a joy and inspiration, it must be founded on knowledge of the truth, on faith in all that is beautiful, ideal, and good, and above all, in devotion to the God who gave us all good things â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who sacrificed His son that we might see in Him exemplified the life of perfect peace, and joy, and beauty. Friends, such imagination may be cultivated. Our individual modes of thinking or imagining are merely matters of habit. And will-power and determination can change any habit. Why is it not just as easy to imagine ourselves capable, fortunate, h a p p y , and successful, as to picture ourselves hopelessly inferior, unfortunate, and u n h a p p y f a i l u r e s ? Why can we not just as easily imagine our future supreme, as to foresee it merely as mediocre? Our present outlook will determine to a large extent what that future will be. T h e value of constructive imagination is inconceivable. Throughout the ages it has written history, built and rebuilt empires, conquered thrones, made kings and leaders, prophets, bards, inventors: raised men from the crudest primitive life to the wonders and complexities of modern civilization. Before the laying of a single stone, the architect sees and plans his structure. Before the masterpiece is scarce begun, the artist sees a vision f a r more lovely. Before the writing of a single melody, there was a song of matchless beauty singing in the author's soul. Without active, constructive imagination, life becomes a drudgery, or at most, a mere existence; work becomes a bore and a g r i n d ; contact with our fellows becomes a necessary but wearing strain upon our patience. Happiness is an inward thing. If we are unhappy, it is because we have a vivid mental picture of ourself, unfortunate and wretched. If we are every moment glad to be alive, it is because we see ourselves happy and blessed. If we are successful, it is because we have ever seen success through seeming failures and defeat. If we are unsuccessful and have lost all hope to rise, it is likely because we have seen in these same difficulties unsurmountable barriers, and have allowed to grow within us an overwhelming sense of hopeless failure, self-deficiency, and inability. In a weird and tragic story by Calderon, the hero is constantly thwarted by a mysterious figure in a mask. At last when the mask is surprise, his own features are revealed. How often do we merely exist! do we really live! How often the fault lies in ourselves alone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the holding us back!

Let us not stand in our own way. Let us not be slaves to a ruler that grinds us to the ground, but triumphant masters of a gloriously helpful and creative servant. Let us not allow our imaginations to tarnish truth, but brighten it. Let us see things as they really are, and then look beyond reality to something that is far superior. Imagination does and will rule. It can crush us to the earth, or make every day of our lives a glorious, enthralling opportunity and adventure. Which shall it be? The poet's share is ours, if we but realize it.

M I N I S T E R I N G AMERICA A nation of bootleggers, gunmen, female vampires and dissolute clergymen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such is the growing impression overseas of what is typical of the people of the United States! Motion picture producers, novelists, and playwrights have concentrated their energies for the past several years toward convincing the world outside of our borders that criminality and every manner of venality and viciousness are overwhelmingly dominant throughout our social structure. Our better side, in the meantime, is caricatured and burlesqued. To foreigners our nation is seemingly a humorless, colorless edition of Eighteenth Century England, bent on enriching itself at the expense of personal honor and honesty. To complicate matters there are also Americans, so called, who are slandering our country abroad. By spreading this damaging propaganda, they are. therefore, making it extremely hard tor us to keep on amicable terms with our neighboring countries. Many of the books and plays by writers of this sort are hailed by the mentors of criticism in our great cities as works of supreme excellence. Once they are boosted sufficiently at home, they find their way abroad, where they are welcomed by an undiscriminating multitude, eagerly willing to accept the characterizations at their face value as achievements of art and truth by gifted American literati. Is it any wonder that the typical foreigners of the quiet better sort, who rarely travel f a r from home, commonly remark, '"If Americans are pretty generally of this stamp, they ought to be wiped off the face of the earth!"' There are modern writers who seem to take great delight in slandering our govern-
T H E
ment. Next they love best to discuss cynically the baseness of American business and the American business man. But the most despicable writer of all is he who directs his satire at the American home and the American family as an institution. The damage done by these writers is not great here where we know the facts, but their works are read throughout Europe, where they give a mistaken impression of us and of our social customs. These writers have partially succeeded in developing a superlative degree of proficiency in their attack on whatever might bear the label of Americanism. It seems that great numbers of so-called culture clubs and literary societies throughout the United States have been readily bamboozled into following this phase of thinking, that as a nation we are realistically unique. So we see that, after all, we are partially to blame for this black eye that we are getting. To capitalize on this fad has been supremely profitable for the novelists and playwrights. The strife among them has been to set the pace in exaggerating or burlesqing whatever is foul or vile in our human nature and presenting this as typically American. We are promised, through this process of "cleansing satire," a dazzling place in the limelight. If you take a very light view of the situation, it is easy to say, "With our income of ninety billion dollars a year and our magnificent standard of living, why should we w o r r y ? ' Of course, the rest of the world is jealous of us; why then care that they think all our clergymen are Elmer Gantrys, that all our capitalists are well-dressed thugs, that prohibition has brought only debauchery to our homes! There is nothing easier than being egotistical about such things and coddling our self-conceit, but there is very little pride or manhood in such an attitude. Even the least intelligent and those more indifferent toward us know that we have a better side. The question is, then: Have we enough sense of patriotism left in us to demand that our slanderers and detractors be compelled to tell at least a part of the truth ? In Europe's own interest it is time that this erroneous impression be countered by a succession of plays dealing with something more closely approximating the real life of our misunderstood country. This is happening at the present time, for many of our famous dramatists are producing plays that are masterpieces and worthy to be read and acted the world over. Eurther, American movies are in great demand by movie fans in Europe, and we have a wonderful opportunity to present to them American principles and ideals and to foster a cordial good-will between nations. America is awake to the fact that she holds a position of supreme influence, and that she can make the world worse or better just as she wills. America is on the right road because she believes in the idea that brought the Quakers from England and the Hugenots f r o m France. It is one of the most powerful ideas in the world, hidden within the very warp and woof of American life, keeping the American spirit alive. We believe in the God of the Pioneer Pilgrims. Our missionaries are working diligently to spread Christianity throughout the land. Our engineers are spending their lives in foreign countries, laboring to install modern and sanitary living conditions. It seems, however, that we are not welcomed by other countries. They seem to think that we are rich and avaricious. Lindbergh, however, showed them that there are Americans who refuse wealth. What about the Panama Canal, which we built at a great expense and now operate at mere cost? What did the United States ^et f r o m the Spanish-American war and the World W a r ? Were we bent on material gain?

It is not pleasant to be misunderstood, and if the United States is to blame for this misunderstanding, should she not do her best to straighten out the matter? There is only one thing that can check this outpouring of slander to the f o u r corners of the e a r t h : an honest and u n a f r a i d protest at home, that will nullify all the derogatory statements of our calumniators. It is the duty of every one of us to raise this protest. We Americans have many problems to solve, many evils to fight, and many deeds to do if we have the wisdom, the strength, the courage, and the virtue to do them. Our nation is that one among the nations of the earth which holds in its hands the fate of the coming years. We enjoy exceptional advantages and are menaced with exceptional dangers, and we shall triumph as a nation if we seriously investigate evil and attack it with unyielding resolution. But there remains to us a great duty of defense and preservation, and there is open to us a noble pursuit to which the spirit of the times strongly invites us. In a day of peace let us advance the acts of peace. Let us develop the resources of our land, build up its institutions, promote all of its great interests, and see whether we also in our time may not perform something worthy to be remembered. Let us cultivate a spirit of union and harmony, and rear f o r our country a vast and splendid monument of peace and liberty, upon which the world may look with admiration. We know that we are not perfect. There are many things we must change, and to effect this change we must bring to the solution of every problem this spirit: an intense and fervid Americanism. A large percentage of our crime, statistics show, is perpetrated by the foreign element in our large cities. This f o r c e f u l l y brings to us the necessity of more severe immigration laws as well as a substantial reduction of the number admitted to our crowded shores. Uncle Sam has proved himself a very decent and honorable member of international society. By receiving with open arms all the races of the world, he has welded a diversified family into an orderly nation of over one hundred million people. We must Americanize those already here, in speech, in political ideas and principles, and in their way of looking at the relations between church and State. We shall never do away with crime unless all of the foreigners in America become Americans in heart and soul, in spirit and purpose, keenly alive to the responsibility implied in the very title of American, and proud beyond measure of the glorious privilege of bearing this exalted name. We Americans must set a good example f o r these future citizens. We must learn to discriminate between propaganda and literature worth reading. Already our schools and colleges are fast doing away with illiteracy and are creating a demand for the best literature. Foreign students attending these institutions know that the propaganda spread in Europe slandering the people of the United States is absolutely false. Our copyright union is becoming more stringet in the censorship of plays and books, thus preventing playwrights and authors from falsely defaming our country. Nothing definite will be accomplished, however, until we get a keener sense of loyalty towards our own country. To apologize f o r being American is too common among us. The word " p a t r i o t i s m " seems to have become obsolete in our vocabularies. But when we once again thrill to the strains of our national anthems, and doff our hats to the colors,
Pags One IIundrt'd
I L E S T O N
then, and not until then, will all those who slander us creep into the shadows and disappear. We have nothing to be ashamed of. We are rich, but we have toiled and labored in our own country for our wealth. We have grown rich because we had the brains to invent. We have done one remarkable thing by lifting the education of the entire nation to a point never reached by any other nation. We have had more f u l l stomachs; we have spread luxuries among the people more widely even than have some of the countries which are our most severe critics. Against foreign criticism and malicious propaganda what have we to offer? Well, nothing but real equality of opportunity. Nothing but the fact that every office boy carries in his pocket the key to the president's office. Nothing but the knowledge that intelligence and industry can get you anywhere you may want to go. Nothing, in short, but those very things which any and every nation of Europe would give its heart and soul to possess in just half the degree that is ours: national honesty of purpose, national good sportsmanship, national integrity — qualities which every other nation recognizes as essential and depends upon every day of its life. Triumphant in this, may we never forget that the great need of America today is a "full-statured Christ." "America, America, Torchbearer of the free. Upon thine ample shield I read Law, Order. Liberty. All races here in friendship meet And here united plan On justice and good will to build The Commonwealth of Man."

PI KAPPA DELTA The local chapter of the national fraternity of Pi K a p p a Delta, although small, has won for itself considerable honor during the past year. The membership this year was very small due to the losses sustained through graduation of last year's class. Membership cannot be filled out by appointment as the fraternity is purely an honorary one; students who have taken part in collegiate debate or who have represented their college in an oratorical contest are alone eligible. Opportunity f o r participation in such activity is furnished through Hope's membership in the Michigan Debating and Oratorical Leagues. Further opportunities for meriting membership in this organization are made possible through intersectional and national conventions of the Pi Kappa Delta. During the last few years it has been customary to hold a spring banquet. This furnishes an opportunity f o r the active and alumni members to reacquaint themselves with the ideals and efforts of the Fraternity and adds zest to the year's activities.

THE ANCHOR The 1928 Anchor witnessed many changes, so that by the time the end of the year rolled around, the staff has been quite revised. The first editor. Harms Bloemers, who started the work with such promise and who put out many issues of the best Anchor we had seen f o r a long time, was forced to leave school on account of ill-health, and his rather heavy cloak fell on the shoulders of a coed. However, this uncertain year saw the "Coed Edition" an innovation in honor of Leap Year and the Sophomore and Freshman Anchors were of the best. The 1928 Anchor saw the College through a difficult crisis of indifference and dissatisfaction, and on the road to better feeling. The paper was enlarged and improved. Our policy has been: Hope for Hope-ites and Hope-ites for the world. We recognize in Hope College a spirit that cannot be copied by larger or smaller schools and which is not improved by copying other schools, and we have sought to keep alive this individuality in the news of the school and in recording the doings of Hope's alumni and friends.

THE MILESTONE Each year the Milestone staff vies with the staffs which have gone before, in trying to create a finer annual. Each class before us has succeeded in its purpose. We hope and believe that our purpose too, has been gained; and yet we also extend to the next staff our wish that they may produce a book even finer than ours. The staff has spent long, wakeful hours that all this might some dav be recalled to your memory. All those dear class-mates and teachers, those happy hours when all the world seemed right, those sad hours when the silver lining refused to peep through the dark cloud, if some day in the struggle for success, a look at this Milestone brings back with a warm glow tender memories of our Alma Mater, the staff which presents to you this fifteenth annual will feel amply repaid.

FRATERNAL The year 1929 marks the passing of another milestone in the histroy of "Old Fraternal. Since 1834 hundreds of men have graduated from its halls with its timehonored traditions, and delightful memories, giving their lives to the cultivation of Friendship, to the love of Law, and the consecration of Truth. Its men have gone out to all parts of the world and have given their best that the world might better understand and appreciate the golden motto of '"Friendship. Love and Truth. To make this the Golden Rule of society, to live up to the highest ideals of "Old Fraternal, that is the aim of F. S.—that is the fundamental basis of its existence and to that alone can we attribute its success. May the glories of the past challenge us to even greater accomplishments in the future. OFFICERS

COSMOPOLITAN Four years at College constitute a miniature working model of Life. Here, though we live under more or less artificial conditions, nevertheless we liveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Life. The embryo citizen of the world is subjected to influences similar to those which he will encounter in later days. Its whole purpose is to enable him to get his bearings, to decide which of these influences shall be the predominant factor in his subsequent contacts with the world. Cosmos believes that Society Life has an important part to play in this process of orientation. Here a man can learn the reactions of his fellows to his ways of thought and action, and can shape himself accordingly. He learns the essentiality of a sane, charitable, optimistic "slant"" on men and things. Best of all he learns the heartening thrill of real sympathetic understanding that flows through a man-to-man hand-shake, with all it implies of lasting friendship and brotherhood. Cosmos recognizes no conflict between societies and the school as a whole. Diversification is not disunion. The ideals of Hope are the ideals of Cosmos. As a unit we are pledged to entwine with the Orange and Blue the Green and White of "Old Cosmos" and enshrine with the Royalty and Loyalty of our beloved Alma Mater, the trilateral standard of Cosmosâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Friendship. Truth, and Progress. "No ocean can this band dissever. No age destroy that sacred tie; Though we travel far away. Though our hair be turning gray. We will give her our love till we die!""

DELPHI "Delphi, dear old Delphi. For thee our happy hearts heat high. Our songs we raise in joyous praise. And fling thy banner to the sky." Delphi furnished her members an inspiration to live the four-square life which is a mental, spiritual, social and physical growth. As in days of yore the Greeks gathered at the Delphi Oracle in search for Wisdom, so do we today. With Knowledge, Truth, Loyalty, Service and Love as the watchwords. Delphi has inculcated in her members both past and present a bigger and nobler standard of living. Contacts with others are richer for having learned the lesson of honor, courtesy and fair play in Delphi. OFFICERS

SIBYLLINE "Before the cave of Cumae Rolled the deep blue sea, Crested with silvery ripples, Sun-dappled, moon-frosted."
1 hese colors, the royal blue and chaste silver have inspired the Sibyls with worthy ideals of the life abundant, the enrichment of the mind and the santification of the spirit. (»uided by the spirit of Sibylline, each member has been led to greater achievements in college activities, greater service for Sibylline and her Alma Mater. We have enjoyed the companionships of those united by common interests and aspirations and by the search f o r knowledge, for appreciation of the beauty in the world and for the development of complete and well-rounded lives. "Friendship, Love and Fellowship, kind and true," represent many of the friendships we have formed, and the good times we have had together.

EMERSONIAN The year 1929 marks the close of the tenth year that the Emersonian Society has been upon Hope's campus as an actively organized group. This period has been marked with steady progress, at times slow, but always forward. The second article of the Constitution states that: "The purpose of this Society shall be the development of its members from a moral, social, intellectual, and literary standpoint." This thought is kept constantly in mind in all the activities of the Society, and with the passage of the years of his college life every member realizes to a fuller extent the great part his Society has taken in putting him in the position in which he finds himself, morally, socially, and intellectually. Letters from alumni members indicate that more and more as life goes on, do they realize the breadth and value of the training they received in their four years as Emersonians. The patron "saint'" of the Society is Ralph Waldro Emerson, the greatest of American philosophers. No thing f u r t h e r would have to be said of our activities, other than that we are attempting to truly follow the precept of this m a n ; a man who had the genius to write, "The power of a man increases steadily by continuance in one direction.
He becomes acquainted with the resistances
and with his own tools; increases his skill and strength and learns the favorable moments and favorable accidents. H e is his own apprentice, and more time gives a great addition of power, just as a falling body acquires momentum with every foot of the fall."

DORIAN Dorian, like the old Greek tribe from which our name is derived, stands for what is highest, finest, simplest, and best in Life. Thus, it is ever our purpose to reach, individually, and collectively, upward and onward toward our life's goal. We are working together for the highest good which college and its social contacts can give. We are striving for honor, in the personal sense of the word. We are striving for understanding in our relations to the world. We are striving for unselfishness in our attitude toward all. We are striving for true culture, refinement and poise. And ultimately, as a result, we are striving for that true happiness which makes life really worth while. Believing that frienship is one of the most precious gifts of Life, we meet together each week to develop this gift, and other gifts which can be secured only in the company of one's fellow beings. Here, under the lavender and gold of the Dorian standard, surmounted by the orange and blue of our Alma Mater, our hearts will ever be true to these two groups which do mean and will mean so much in our lives. "We love the Strength for which it stands: Simplicity and Truth. Love, Loyalty, and Friendships fair. And the colors of Old Hope. But we love the lavender and gold. S h i n i n g down through ages o l d ; And we'll acclaim this dear old name. T h e name of Dorian."

ADDISON In the remotest periods of time man knew the uplifting influence of fellowship as an enrichment of Life. Humanity and social instincts were infants together. Improvements in the conditions of civilization means improved social relationships, greater fidelity, and increased brotherhood among men, and cultural advancement. Addison as a social group spreads her a r m s to the light, welcomes truth, encourages c u l t u r e — s t a n d s for an abundant life. f h r o u g h social contact and group responsibility, leadership emerges as a knight filled with wonder and joy at new-found powers. To have these aims continually before him is an invaluable aid to the student of Life. "Leadership our truest motto, Culture in the purest light, With fidelity our standard. Hail the Purple and the White."

Alethea's blue and rose are the symbols of truth and love — truth for its own sake and love for the sake of others. Throughout life's journey we need the encouragement and strength from association with others who have a similar philosophy of life and are striving for the same high goal. Alethea has supplied that need and in the cultivation of friendship and helpfulness in the smaller group we are learning the art of friendship and helpfulness in the larger group. Alethea does not tend to limit our circle of friendships but to expand it and to cause the range of our vision to take in all humanity in its pledge of service. Alethea has been an inspiration to each of us and has helped to create a spirit of true loyalty combined with a sincere love f o r our Alma Mater and each other. Because we have put our best into our educational and social pleasures we have been able to achieve a greater literary ability. "Then sing to the rose and blue, For its service and friendship true; For upheld by thy light we will walk in the right With a torch for a beacon and signal. For thee we'll live and work, N o duties ever shirk. For thee with our heart. W e will all do our part, For thee, oh Alethea."

CHEMISTRY CLUB No man with his eye upon the trend of human development can deny that at the present time more than at any other period in its history the world lives, moves, and has its being in the test tube. The whole fabric of modern existence is woven so closely with that of the science of Chemistry that to separate them would result in a throwback in progress of many centuries. And age in which a substance hundreds of times sweeter than sugar, colors more brilliant than indigo, flavors better than the fruits themselves, perfumes sweeter than the rose, and disinfectants safer than carbolic acid, may all be manufactured from the same black pitch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; coal tar. An age in which the clothes we wear and the food we eat may both be prepared from sawdust. An age in which we get a motor fuel from corn husks, and the buttons on our coat from milk. That truly is an age of Chemistry. Then, too, no one will deny that in any field of endeavor whatsoever, the highest possible development can come only as a result of the closest cooperation of the workers in that field, and the intensive and extensive correlation of material such cooperation affords. To the fact that these two situations do exist, the Hope College Chemistry Club owes its existence and development. The members have pledged themselves to the work of the retort and balance; and have bonded themselves together for the purpose of greater development, and freer expression.

PREMEDIC CLUB Among those students on Hope's campus who have dedicated themselves to the service of mankind, the Pre-medics hold no menial place. These students are brought together because of their common aim and because their conception of the f u t u r e makes them aware of certain common needs. A stepping stone to success in their chosen profession is offered in the form of the Pre-medic Club. The society feels that there is afforded to its members a feeling of unity that will endure. It presents a true outlook on subsequent study and the professional career, and at the same time invaluable instruction is given, and discussion carried on witii a different aspect than that of the classroom. Lectures are given by prominent men. The students read papers on subjects of interest and instruction, and a discussion is carried on about them at the bi-monthly meetings. Especially through our college course we hold our ideals before us, pressing toward this goal, that we may offer to our race the best that is in us, and that our descendants may profit by our attainments, for our aim is to leave to them a blessed heritage f o r which we now hear a crying need.

T H E SCIENCE CLUB Ours is a scientific age. Modern civilization has developed f r o m wild savagery only through the progress of science. By it we are enabled to build our homes, to have automobiles, to cure our sick, and to converse with one another through thousands of miles of space. The American scientist has been in a large measure responsible for the position of respect and influence which America holds among the nations of the world. It is only through the continued progress of science that we can hope to see the future race more efficient and stronger than the present. Science is destined to fill a greater and greater part in the development of the future generation. The Science Club of Hope College aims to develop the natural scientific interests of its members into more active, dynamic interests, and to show the individual the important place that science holds in everyday modern life. The programs, which are not restricted to any particular field, afford each member a broad conception of the relation of his individual field to the general. As members of the science club it is our task to fit ourselves for service to humanity, by mastery of some particular field of science. As those great men who have gone before, looked into the future, and committeed themselves to the task of making this the best of all ages to live in, so are we committing ourselves to the task of making the future an ever more and more glorious future to live in.

A W O R D FROM T H E C O A C H Athletics play a definite part in the work of an educational institution. It is the classroom and the gymnasium cooperating that will accomplish the most for the individual student. Athletics accomplish two m a j o r things: they develop a man physically and they assist in the formation of character. Hard training makes for strong welldeveloped bodies and a powerful physique. The work is a builder of character, making the athlete every inch a man. Participation in sports develops individual initiative, perseverance, and a determination to overcome all obstacles. As a member of a team the athlete must learn the necessity of cooperation and self-sacrifice. Proper team play and team spirit inculcate into the individual habits which will be of value to him in later life. Good sportsmanship and a desire for fair play are qualities which an athlete must possess. Diligent training and practice, throwing yourself into the game f o r all you are worth, playing to win, yet not fearing to lose, and always playing like a true sportsman,â&#x20AC;&#x201D;these are the things which build character. Hope College has always maintained a high standard of sportsmanship. It is traditional and has helped to mold the character of the institution. To win games at any costâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;never! Hope stands for something nobler; she aims at something higher than a victory unfairly won. Teams must fight, but they must fight fairly. Hope is a member of the M. I. A. A. and meets the competition of rival colleges in the sports of football, basketball, baseball, and track. Teams are turned out for each one of these sports. Also, gym classes are conducted for the benefit of the studentry. These various duties require long hours of service, but the work is interesting and the satisfaction worth while.

BASEBALL Hope's baseball veterans and aspirants assembled early in the spring f o r practice. The outlook appeared bright with the return of many veterans, the team lacking only two infielders and two outfielders of being a veteran squad. The team, captained by Oppie De Groot at short stop, showed very good baseball at times, but lacked the steadiness and polish of a sure winner. Hope's first game was played at Riverview park against the strong Western State Teacher's college. Many errors led to an 8-1 victory for Western. This game, however, ironed out many of the rough spots in the Hope team. On April 21, Albion swamped Hope again as the results of errors 7-1. Cole pitched a good game for Hope but his team mates could glean but one run during the entire match. On April 25 Hope engaged Kazoo College on its campus diamond and was swamped by a 10-1 score. Cole had much difficulty with the Kazoo batters, while Watson of Kazoo held the Hope men to four hits. The Orange and Blue found its baseball form against Hillsdale in a double header on their diamond. The first game Hope took by a 5-3 score. The second game was taken by Hope 12-0. Cole pitched through the first game, and with good support, held the Hillsdale nine to three runs. Van Lente pitched a shutout game in the second of the double-header. On May 5, Kazoo took the breaks in a close game and won 2-1. Hope made five hits to Kazoo s four but could not turn their's into the necessary runs. The next week

Hope successfully took the measure of Olivet at Riverview park by the score of 7-5. \ an Lente and R. J a p p i n g f o r m e d the battery for Hope and though touched frequently timely hitting kept the home nine in the lead. On the 17th, the Albion baseball team did not entertain their visitors well and swamped the Hope team with an orgy of base hits and runs. They won 7-1. On the 19th, Olivet suffered at the hands of Cole and his team mates and they bowed before the 81- onslaught of Hope. Though the day was poor for baseball Hope easily held Olivet to one run and socked the Olivet moundsman for eight runs and several basehits. Cole yielded but five hits to the Olivet batters. At this point Hope stood in third place in the M.I.A.A. run. having f o u r wins and three losses. Good fortune did not smile on the Hope nine, for after twelve long innings of desperate fighting, the Hope squad cracked, and Albion, the association leaders, took a 10-5 win. Hope missed chances of bringing in the much-needed runs by poor batting, but the experienced Albion crew came through with five runs on hits and errors in the third extra inning of the match. This was the last regular season game, but at the Albion field day on June 1 and 2. Hope again played Albion and this time was defeated 17-6. Van Lente and Cole were hit often and hard. M.S.C. then showed their superiority by giving Hope an 11-0 defeat. The Staters had everything their way during the game, but Hope showed up well considering the competition. The team ended the season in fourth place in the M.I.A.A. race and conducted themselves well during the whole season. Coach Schouten is to be commended on the baseball team and the work he has done with them. Of this team, three men graduate, leaving a veteran squad with which to start next year.

FRESHMAN BASEBALL The Freshman baseball team was organized mainly for the purpose of finding material which could be used in the varsity in the years to come. The frosh played a number of teams of the community and of the neighboring vicinity. The team was also used several times against the varsity for practice. Although the frosh season was rather short, it served to point out the possibilities of several players. Coach Schouten believes that several of the boys can be made into real players. Perhays in a year or two, this g r o u p will be the varsity!

Hope entered the football season with a nucleus of seven veterans and at the first call. Coach Jack Schouten began to whip his team into shape. To all appearances h=; had a veteran line, bul an inexperienced backfield with which to battle the strong M.I. A. A. teams. The offensive of this team was to be developed before any success of the team could be assured. Several weeks of training had developed the team to a good physical condition but (he problem of filling in a good backfield was not so easily solved. The best solution seemed to be in Cook as fullback. De Young and De Velder as halves, and Jappinga as quarter. Captain Vanden Bush led the strong line with experienced players at all the line positions.

The first game was played at Riverview park September 28 against Olivet. The weakness of the team then became apparent. Though neither team scored, both teams fought hard. Hope seemed weak in blocking an aerial attack and in co-operation between backfield and line, while Olivet could do nothing against the Hope line. Steffens and Martin broke through in fine form, but the lines' efforts could not offset the scoreless tie. 1 he next Saturday Hope journeyed to Hillsdale where they earned the name of Scoreless Wonders. As at Olivet the teams lacked the offensive power but the defense seemed to be proportionately strong. In this game the teams were evenly matched. Coach Schouten extended his efforts to put his team in shape for the hard approaching games of the schedule. The third game of the season presented the greatest difficulties the team had yet met. Alma, '26 and '27 champions, was anxious to make a record of three successive championships. Their superior teamwork, weight, and cleverness overcame the fighting Hopites and won out 12-0.

The experience and clever lactics of the Alma crew was lacking in Hope's machine, but Alma had great difficulty in scoring her twelve points. Successive line smashes both times placed the ball near the Hope goal line where the strong hope line failed to hold back Alma s heavy artillery. Hope celebrated her homecoming day in a record game with the Kazoo College eleven. The return of Alumni brought a record crowd to see Kazoo defeat Hope 7-0. To all appearances Hope should at least have equaled the lone touchdown of the Celery Pickers. A pretty run, a penalty, two line bucks, gave Kazoo the ball on Hope's one-yard line where ihey could not be stopped. The team fought desperately to even the score but the whistle ended the bitter struggle. De Young and Cook played very well in the backfield and the whole line was to be commended on their fight and ability. The greatest football the 1928 team played was in the game at Albion in which the fighting Dutchmen took the short end of a 7-0 score. Albion got a flying start, scoring in the first two minutes of play, but thereafter they had all they could do to keep their record as an undefeated team. After the first few minutes, though the game was played in a steady rain, the Albion team was forced to use all its strength in holding Hope. Winter punted well. Becker, Klay, Brunson. De Young and Cook all shared in smashing the clever plays of the M.I.A.A. champions.

Hope put a flying finish on the 1928 season by breaking into the scoring column and defeating General Motors Tech 12-7. Vanden Bush. Klay. De Young, and Martin made their last appearance on a Hope Grid team and played a good game as their last for Hope. Early in the game, a Flint man ran thirty-five yards f o r a touchdown after which he kicked the extra point. They never again made a first down, while Hope successfully traversed the field for two touchdowns. The slippery condition of the ball prevented successful try f o r extra point. The line was able to open up holes for the ball toters better than ever before and, also, the Flint team was unable to break through on Hope's plays. Hope's hard tackling was also a feature of the game. Although not an M.I.A.A. game, it clearly showed the capabilities of the Hope squad. Although the season did not productwins, yet it showed clearly the scrappiness of the Hope squad.

FRESHMAN FOOTBALL Hope's Freshman team of ihis year provided ample material on which to build a team next year as well as carrying out a successful campaign against other freshman teams. Paul Nettinga assisted Coach Schouten in making a team that offered plenty of opposition to the varsity and to the other freshman teams that were played. In the first game. Hillsdale yearlings were overcome by the Hope team. Alma and kazoo College defeated the Frosh but this was due largely to lack of experience in the young Hopites. Dalman and Beaver showed varsity possibilities in the General Motors games and the team as a whole is to be commended for sportsmanship and ability.

Hope's basketball team entered the season with four veterans and plenty of reserve material to form a real team. Vander Hill was unable to play because of illness but the return of Cook to the game was an important addition to Coach Schouten's quintet. As usual, interest was manifest in the game early in the season and the earlypractice games resulted in the Hope team whipping their early rivals. After a few practice games Manager De Velder arranged a trip through Michigan, Illinois, and Iowa. These games were contested with indifferent success. Hope was successful in two of the seven games played against real competition. On January 1 Hope struck a stone wall in the Boter's of Grand Rapids. lost its second game to Kazoo Normal and again was defeated by the surpising dale team by the close score of 29-26. Hope's veterans did not begin to find selves till too late in the game and only came within three points of tying the

It was a different team that played at Alma and gave the Alma quintet far more than they expected. Hope held the hall during most of this game and piled a lead that they kept through the game. The final score was 30-25. This was Hope's first M.I.A.A. win. The Orange and Blue again suffered a relapse before the Hillsdale basketeers. Martin and Cook played all the basketball f o r Hope but they could not offset some clever passwork by the Hillsdale quintet. In a stirring contest the St. M a r y ' s College team pulled ahead of the Orange and Blue to win 28-26. Clever basketball had the slight edge on Hope's defense but it was anyone's game till the Catholics scored the two free throws.

Hope left M.I.A.A. competition to administer a defeat to General Motors Tech at Flint by a 35-31 score. Reserves played most of this game and provided plenty of competition for the Flint aggregation. On February 6 the varsity journeyed to the Celery City and earned a victory over the Hornets which placed us in the first division in the M.I.A.A. race. Hope crept past the Olivet team to win from them 32-25. Though behind at the half, in the final scoring for points. Hope's superiority came 10 light and another obstacle was swept aside in the M.I.A.A. race. Alma was entertained at Carnegie Gymnasium on March 6 and a rejuvenated team with great difficulty took the measure of the Hopites. This game offered the best brand of basketball ever seen on Hope's floor in recent years. The whistle ended the game with the score 29-25 in favor of Alma.

At the Burton Heights gym Calvin defeated Hope f o r the second time by a score of 25-20. For three quarters Hope's courtsters stayed even with the Calvinites but the fourth quarter offered Calvin several chances to score which they were not too slow to take and thereby maintain a comfortable lead. Some poor shooting was evidenced by both sides, but there was no lack of fight on either side. Men receiving their letter in basketball were: Martin, Vander Hill, De Free, De Velder, Vanden Bush, Becker, Klay, Cook. Van Lente, De Young and Diephouse. The team ended in a tie for third place in the M.FA.A. race, scoring 190 points against 177 of their opponents.

Hope's Freshman basketball team this year was apparently to be of the highest caliber when at the first call some of the best material f r o m high school squads made its appearance. The duty of Coach Schouten appeared to be to weld together a team from this assorted material that could work together. This freshman team made an enviable record for itself, winning all its games on the home floor and losing but two away. The yearlings defeated all the class t e a m s the College All Stars twice, the Olivet Frosh, and twice the Calvin Reserves. Kazoo's freshmen barely won a victory over the frosh, while Albion's team had a real tussel overcoming the Hope youngsters. The large floor at Albion did much to bring defeat to the Hope yearlings. Since no Freshman team can play more than six games in M.I.A.A. circles, the Frosh had little chance for real competition or experience. However, most of the material will prove valuable as varsity material within the next two years.

TRACK Interest was again strong in track in the spring of the 1928 term and though few came out for early practice, much good track material was unearthed. On April 28 the Hope fleetfoot squad matched paces with the experienced Kalamazoo College team, but the Hornets took too many firsts, and the final event saw them 15 points ahead of the Hope men. Hope showed up well in the pole-vault, two-mile, and the hurdles. On Field Day, May 12, Hope easily defeated the Olivet track team 104-17. Hope took first in most every event and had a large enough squad to count in the second and third places. The team which went to Albion took fourth place in the M.l.A.A. meet with 16 points. Hard training and student support would give Hope's tracksters even better standing as the next season comes around. Hope's Freshman material is of the highest grade and since they won all their meets, the outlook for the coming year is very bright.

TENNIS Although the long promised tennis courts had not yet arrived. Hope sent out a tennis team to various colleges and showed some real class, considering her handicaps. Considerable interest was shown among students and there was no lack of material f o r the Orange and Blue team. E. Damstra, C. Klaassen. L. Vander Poel, 0 . Maddaus, N. McCarroIl. and L. Bovenkerk represented Hope in intercollegiate meets. Two games were lost to Kazoo in the season and one contest was taken f r o m Olivet. Kazoo won the first contest 4-'5 when only Damstra, Vander Poel, and Klassen could win their singles matches, while Bovenkerk, Maddaus, and the two double teams lost their matches. In the other engagements all the men took part in taking honors for Hope, but Kazoo again came out on the large end of the score, in the second match Olivet was again easily defeated 5-2. Enthusiasm f o r tennis is greatly on the increase at Hope.

" H " CLUB
The " H " CIuIj is an organization having as its one requisite for membership the possession of a Hope letter earned in one of the sports in which the college engages. This requires participation in the majority of intercollegiate contests in any certain sport. Thus, in this organization all of the athletes of the school are handed together for the promotion of the entire movement. To be an athlete of Hope indicates several qualities in the character of a man. A strong and healthy physique, well-developed and trained, and an alert and active mindâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;^ these are the prime essentials. Natural ability as an athlete, perfected by hours of practice and a strict adherence to training, is always found in the man who has distinguished himself on the athletic field. Hope men have always stood for these things, and they feel that it is worth while to be the possessor of an " H . "

A T H L E T I C DEBT DIGGERS The letters A.D.D. have a double meaning to all members of the Athletic Debt Diggers. To them the letters also spell a word which they use as their motto. Throughout the school year they have tried to do their bit to add to the assets o: the athletic f u n d and to add to the pep and the school spirit of the student body. Besides selling hot-dogs at the football games and frost-bites at the basketball games, they also have been in the bleachers rooting f o r the team. All money that they have made has been turned into the athletic f u n d to buy sweaters and equipment for the various teams.

DEDICATION To those who walk with the Spirit of J a n u a r y on their faces, the Spirit of May in their blood, the Spirit of June in their desires, and the Spirit of April First in their hearts, is this section of the Milestone respectfully dedicated. FOREWORD Lest we forget, recall to mind that humor was handed down to us f r o m the beginning of time. Therefore, if the antiquity of some of this h u m o r does not appeal to you. recall that there are styles in h u m o r as well as in custom and dress. Therefore, bear in mind that interspersed with some of ultra modern style of humor, is some of the midVic'.orian humor. Recall that Grandaiother got a kick out of it. so

Trust is almost the highest thing in life. It is the essence of civilization. Trust is the very foundation of banking. T h e idea that hundreds of people trust some banker with their surplus funds, and he puts those funds at the service of the community as a whole through loaning them to persons who redeposit them, to be reloaned and redeposited again, so that the bank, a bundle of individual trusts of rich and poor, becomes one of the fulcrums upon which civilization turns."
We want every student to use the facilities of this Bank, which is the largest and strongest in Ottawa County.

WASHINGTON WROTE THIS — "Economy makes happy homes and sound nations. Instill it deep." The passing years have only proved the truth of his words. It is as essential to save in 1929 as it was in 1776. Also it is easier, for now every facility is offered persons desiring to save. The people of this community will find every convenience and absolute safety at this bank. OK5

HOLLAND, MICHIGAN Manager: Do you drink? Applicant: I'll have a small one, thank you. Sweet: Jack says he can read you like a book. Thing: Yes, and darn him. he wants to use the Braille system. He: I sent my girl some mistletoe the other day, and last night when 1 went over, she had it hanging up. I asked her if she'd kiss me under the mistletoe. H i m : What did she say? He: No, she wouldn't even kiss me under an anaesthetic. This is so sudden, said the recently married husband, as he accepted another product of his wife's baking. Father: Are you sure you can give my daughter the luxuries to which she is accustomed? Suitor: I ought to. I'm the one who accustomed her to 'em. Dietitian; Yes, a few lettuce leaves without oil, and a glass of orange juice. There, that completes your daily diet. Any College Girl: Thank you so much. Doctor, but do I take this before or after meals? G. Van Ark (lighting a match) : Anybody want to light a cigarette? W. Hyink: Just a minute; I'll run up stairs and get one.

You'll have to take less strenuous exercises, and get more sleep," said the doctor to the dejected man before him. " T h a t ' s my idea exactly," said the other.

Insurance at Cost TT'S a matter of price, but an insurance policy once bought must bear the burden as to the contingency insured against. It can not be worn for a time, thrown away like a shoe and the incident closed. Your policy may expire like an old horse and then be replaced but in most cases the new policy can not be sent back to pick up the load left by the other. Either insurance is good or it isn't. If you can't depend upon it the price you paid for it is of little consequence. The cheapest may prove the most expensive. Vjsscher-Brooks offer all forms of insurance. N o matter what kind of insurance you need, this agency assures you that it will use only the best companies obtainable anywhere. You will always enjoy having a policy written while you were in college.

A traveling man who had been obliged three times to take an upper berth in the sleeping car "Aloha," has requested the Pullman Company to name the next one "Anuppah." Not a day passes, but my wife shows her incompatibility. Ain't it a crime the way these women dress nowadays? One day Jones called up a friend and said: "I understand that Brown was at your house last night, and was not in A-l condition?" "You are right," admitted the friend. "He was here and very much intoxicated." "Terrible, terrible!" ejaculated Jones. "By the way, was I there t o o ? " The Smith Brothers are swearing vengeance on Old Golds.

Sometimes. For instance, if I see a man dressed in a blue suit with shiny buttons, with a helmet on his head and a club in his hand, Fm willing to bet a dollar he's a policeman. Candid letter acknowledging a present. Dear Aunt Harriet: Thank you for your gift. I have always wanted a pin cushion but not very much. You have two alternatives. Your professor is either easy or hard. If he is easy, you have nothing to worry about. If he is hard, you have two alternatives; either you study hard or you bluff. If you study hard, you don't have to worry. If you bluff, you have two alternatives. Either your bluff works or it doesn't. If it works, you have nothing to worry about. If it doesn't you have two alternatives; you are conditioned, or you flunk. If you are conditioned, you don't need to worry. If you flunk, you won't have to worry any longer. Therefore, why worry? Babe, the circus elephant, had just killed her keeper and was the center of the day's news, so the photographer of the Tabloid Daily Scream was sent to get a picture of the mammoth murderess.
