LOG I DEDICATION


DEDICATION To the sacred memory of the "Grand Old Man of Hope", JOHN BERNARD NYKERK we, the class of nineteen hundred and thirty-eight, dedicate this Milestone in our deep and humble appreciation of his untiring efforts during the half century that he labored so nobly upon the campus of Hope College. Our Dean has embarked for the last and greatest Port, and we, who still sail on, fastening our eyes upon his enduring ideal, reverently salute his passing.

JOHN BERNARD NYKERK (1861-1936) On October 25, 1936, Dr. lohn B. Nykerk passed quietly from the scene of his labors. His d e a t h came a s a distinct shock to the faculty, students, a n d friends of Hope College. The n a m e s of Hope College a n d Dr. Nykerk h a v e b e e n associated almost a s one for more than fifty years. Dr. Nykerk w a s born at Overisel, Michigan, on September 13, 1861. When he h a d completed his elementary education, he entered the Academy of Hope College, a n d g r a d u a t e d from there in 1880. After teaching for a short period in the township schools he returned to Hope College a n d w a s g r a d u a t e d a s the valedictorian of the Class of 1885. In September of the same y e a r he w a s appointed instructor in the Academy, later organized a s the College High School. In 1895 he w a s chosen Professor of English L a n g u a g e a n d Literature at the college. He b e c a m e Hope's Dean of Men in 1918. After eighteen years of service in this capacity, in April, 1936, he resigned a s Dean a n d a s h e a d of the Department of English. However, the Board of Trustees of Hope College at once appointed him Emeritus Professor of English. This long period of service w a s interrupted only twice—during 1890-91—when he w a s e n g a g e d a s a teacher of English at the Northwestern Classical Academy, a n d a g a i n when he spent a year a n d a half at Oxford University, England, in g r a d u a t e study of Early English a n d Anglo-Saxon literature. Dr. Nykerk w a s a musician of the highest order. As a baritone singer he ranked a m o n g the first musicians of Michigan, doing concert a n d choral work not only throughout the state, but also at C h a u t a u q u a a n d Institute Assemblies throughout the east a n d west. He w a s director of music at Hope College, conducting glee clubs, the Choral Union, a n d other similar organizations until recent years. He organized a n d directed the Hope College Lyceum in the late nineties a n d continued to bring artists a n d speakers of fame to the school until the outbreak of the World War. Among the most outstanding American orators whom Dr. Nykerk knew personally a n d e n g a g e d for his lecture programs were William Jennings Bryan, Robert La Eollette, Sr., Newell Dwight Hillis, Russell H. Conwell, a n d Senator A. H. Beveridge. In all of his activities in the Lyceum he sought to a u g m e n t his work a s a teacher of music a n d oratory. He h a d to his credit a larger number of prizewinning student orators than a n y other instructor in the Michigan Oratorical League. In recognition of the prominent position which he h a d attained in these pursuits, Hope College conferred the honorary d e g r e e of Doctor of Letters upon him in 1920. At the time of his death Dr. Nykerk w a s a member of the Holland Rotary Club, the National Educational Association, the Michigan Educational Association, a n d the Author's Association of Michigan. He w a s also a writer of the Oxford Dictionary group a n d h a d submitted to the editors at London a division on Old Dutch, or Frisian, a n d Anglo-Saxon—a part of the never-finished section for which he w a s responsible, a n d on which he w a s considered a n authority.

STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council started the year off with a very successful All-College Mixer. Several other college functions followed u p this affair, a m o n g these being the All-College Alumni Banguet, which w a s a d d e d to the list of Homecoming activities; the a n n u a l Frosh-Soph contests; the Freshman trial; a n interesting Get-Acguainted a n d Dutch Treat Week; a successful trip to Kalamazoo to see Hope's team win the basketball championship; a n d the a n n u a l All-College Spring Banquet. Student Council greatly a u g m e n t e d its usefulness by altering its system of representation. Representation is to b e b a s e d on literary societies rather than classes. This enlarges the membership from nine to fifteen a n d renders the g r o u p more representative of the student body. Another forward step w a s taken in electing a purser to administer the Student Activities Fee to the various organizations. Cooperating with the Anchor, a n Inter-fraternity Track Meet w a s sponsored with large student participation. Thus, through numerous innovations, the retiring Council served Hope in a noteworthy manner.

PI KAPPA DELTA Behind every forensic activity at Hope College is the Michigan G a m m a chapter of Pi K a p p a Delta, national honor forensic fraternity. Its aim, both nationally a n d at Hope, is to promote a n d e n c o u r a g e all speech activity, whether d e b a t e , oratory, or extempore speech. From the fall reunion to the spring b a n q u e t in May, the y e a r h a s b e e n a n eventful one for Michigan G a m m a . For the first time, monthly meetings with guest speakers w e r e instituted, proving highly successful not only in arousing interest but also in aiding in a better m a n a g e m e n t of forensics. The chapter a g a i n sponsored a High School Debate Tournament with m a n y schools participating. Ten d e l e g a t e s were sent to the Province of the Lakes Convention at Kalamazoo to e n g a g e in various speech contests. The spring b a n q u e t , held at the Holland Country Club, w a s a fitting climax to the year. The large n u m b e r of neophytes initiated at that time gives promise of making Michigan G a m m a of oven greater importance on Hope's campus.

BUTER With a n effective, sincere oration on automobile accidents, Miss Lucille Buter won her w a y to a State Championship in the Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League. Displaying a true orator's poise a n d power, she graphically presented the conditions leading to thirty-six thousand deaths in one year. She then r e a c h e d a vivid climax with the words which constituted the title of her LUCILLE BUTER W o m e n ' s Orator

oration, "Live a n d Let Live!" An innovation w a s m a d e in sending the college orator to the Interstate Oratorical Contest in Chicago, in which eleven states were represented. Through many months of h a r d work a n d practice, Miss Buter w a s expertly coached b y Miss Metta Ross.

TIRRELL After winning the local contest with a p e a c e oration, Mr. Earnest Tirrell placed fourth in the state contest with a n oration entitled "Liberty or Law!" In this up-to-the-minute speech he analyzed the problem of the anthracite coal miners a n d the sit-down strikers, pointing out that our laws lag behind the will of the people a n d that they must b e renovated to meet changing conditions. Under the a b l e coaching of Dr. Rolland Shackson, tho college orator showed his true form by winning second place in a field of representatives of seven states at the Province of the Lakes Convention of Pi K a p p a Delta.

NYLAND With but a recent beginning, extempore speaking h a s p l a c e d itself a m o n g the leading speech activities on Hope's campus. In the local contest, Miss Alma Nyland of Martin, Michigan, w a s chosen to represent the college at Battle Creek. Here the Hope representative tied for third place in a hard-fought contest.

Though also d e b a t i n g

at the Pi K a p p a Delta Convention in Kalamazoo, Miss Nyland found time to qualify for the final contest in extempore. Again she bore high the n a m e of Hope College b y receiving fourth place in the final frame.

ALMA NYLAND W o m e n ' s Extempore Speaker

TE PASKE Constantly increasing interest h a s b e e n shown in this type of public speech. Its a p p e a l , no doubt, lies in its call for quick, clear thinking while speaking. Two local contests w e r e necessary to finally select from seven other contestants Mr. Del Te Paske of Sioux Center, Iowa. The subjects r a n g e d over the entire political world, making extensive preparation necessary. At Battle Creek Mr. Te Paske spoke on the subject, "The League of Nations a n d Peace." Though failing to place, the Hope speaker w a s well received, a s he h a d travelled in Europe a n d spoke DEL TE PASKE Men's Extempore S p e a k e r

VANDEN BOS After a lapse of a few years, interpretative reading returned to a deserving place in the college forensic department.

The students immediately

displayed a hearty interest in this dramatic activity, v a l u a b l e for its development of appreciation in spoken verse.

Through the help of Dr. Shackson, Mr. W a s s e n a a r p r e p a r e d a very effective oration for the state contest, in which nine schools participated. In addition Mr. W a s s e n a a r is worthy of double honor for his winning the men's interpretative reading contest.

THE SENIOR PLAY The class of 1937 h a s renewed, this year, another p h a s e of Hope's extra-curricular activity—the dramatic. The presentation of the three act play, "You a n d I", by the Senior class marked the renewal of the dramatic tradition of the college after a lapse of several years. This production, written by the well-known playwright, Philip Barry, w a s staged in the Holland High School auditorium. May fifth a n d sixth, before a n appreciative a n d enthusiastic audience composed of students a n d supporters of the college. A m e a s u r e of the great success of the play w a s d u e to the skillful a n d a b l e direction of Miss Evelyn Metz, a g r a d u a t e of the Northwestern School of Speech. In presenting "You a n d I," the g r a d u a t i n g class hoped to stimulate what interest in dramatics is present on the campus, a n d aimed to provide a d e g u a t e incentive for lower classes, a n d the others who follow them, to overcome staging a n d producing difficulties a n d develop their latent dramatic talent. In doing all this it hoped also to accomplish a third purpose—to make it possible to finance a memorial gift to the college.

"You a n d I" is a serious comedy whose plot centers a b o u t the conflict that arises in the life of Maitland White, a n artist who h a s given u p his career for m a r r i a g e a n d business. Dissatisfied with this type of life, he a g a i n turns tow a r d painting only to relinguish it in order to help his son, Ricky, a student architect. Laughs w e r e provided in the play b y the maid, Etta, while the juvenile love team furnished the thrills a n d d r a m a . The whole play a s p r o d u c e d here w a s eminently suited to the n e e d s of the present Senior class, a n d a d a p t e d to the cast with great care by Miss Metz, the director.

ATHLETIC BOARD The Board in Control of Athletics is a n organization little known on the c a m p u s outside of athletic circles; yet it is the governing body in that p h a s e of c a m p u s activity. The organization is composed of five members, two of them being alumni, two of them members of the college faculty, a n d the other a student. The student representative on the b o a r d is elected from the Sophomore class to serve for a period of two y e a r s while the other four individuals serve for longer periods of time. The purpose of the g r o u p is to regulate a n d control all activity that is carried on in the Department of Physical Education. It schedules all athletic contests, makes contracts, controls all finances connected with the athletic program, grants a w a r d s a n d determines the system w h e r e b y a w a r d s shall b e granted. It h a s a direct association with M.l.A.A. Board of Control, for one faculty member a n d the student representative from the local b o d y represent Hope's athletics in the conference which determines all M.l.A.A. regulations, sports, a n d athletic schedules. The local b o a r d is constantly concerned with the furtherance of the college athletics, a n d the high standard of efficiency for which the Department of Physical Education can boast is largely d u e to the efforts of Hope's Athletic Board.

ATHLETIC DEBT DIGGERS This y e a r the A.D.D., in spite of the New Deal-like initials of its name, h a s d o n e much work to m a k e the athletic season a success. By determined a n d consistent effort its fifteen m e m b e r s h a v e helped to swell the funds which m a k e it possible for the athletic d e p a r t m e n t to carry on. As usual, the football season w a s a b u s y one for the A.D.D. At the gridiron g a m e s hot-dogs a n d coffee proved the greatest source of revenue, although c a n d y a n d g u m w e r e p o p u l a r a s well. The fall also s a w five n e w recruits— one sophomore girl from e a c h society—initiated into the arts of making hotd o g s a n d coffee a n d selling their wares. And for the first time in history the n e w m e m b e r s w e r e presented their distinguishing sweaters at the cost of the association. W h e n winter arrived, a n d the basketball season, the Debt Diggers turned to selling frost-bites, both at the regular Hope g a m e s a n d at the high school tournament matches sponsored by the college. At the coming of spring a n d the a b s e n c e of widely a t t e n d e d college sports, the A.D.D. d e p e n d e d a g a i n on the selling of c a n d y in the dormitory on which it usually counts to supplement its income. And now that the school y e a r is over once more, the Athletic Debt Diggers look b a c k on their work with satisfaction, a n d forward with the h o p e of accomplishing even more in the future.

VARSITY FOOTBALL The 1936 football season w a s a successful one. Though Hope narrowly missed a conference championship, grid talent w a s outstanding in every department, a n d the team finished the season with the creditable record of a tie for second place, sharing the M.I.A.A. honors with Alma, last year's champions. Opening the season with ten lettermen from last year's s g u a d a n d a strong display of sophomore a n d reserve material, Hope first encountered Alma at the northerner's field. Although gaining eight first downs to their foe's five a n d threatening the enemy goal four times, the Dutch s g u a d lost to the Scots by a score of 6-0. Most of the g a m e w a s played in Alma territory, but the Scots threw two long, consecutive passes in the third period for the touchdown that won the game. Olivet w a s Hope's first victim of the football season. After several years of inactivity in football, the Comets put a team on the field which the Dutchmen defeated 26-0. Hope counted twice in the first half a n d twice in the fourth quarter a n d h a d its own w a y most of the afternoon. Although the downstate eleven w a s inexperienced, it w a s a r u g g e d team a n d deserved much credit. Hope counted its second M.l.A.A. victory by defeating Albion 6-0 in a brilliant forward passing attack despite the downpour of rain. In the second

A capacity crowd breathlessly w a t c h e d one of the season's greatest battles, a s Hope lost its Homecoming g a m e 13-7 to Kalamazoo, the team that w a s to win the M.I.A.A. title. After a scoreless first half, Kalamazoo hit the Hope eleven for four successive first d o w n s a n d a touchdown before the third q u a r ter w a s hardly u n d e r w a y .

Both teams played hard, clean ball games. For the Dutch eleven, H a d d e n a n d Jappinga's kicking w a s outstanding, although the entire team should receive credit for the victory. Six seniors played their last g a m e for their Alma Mater: Buys, Jappinga, Robbert, Wyngarden, Osterhaven, a n d Klomparens. Ek Buys a n d Fred Jappinga were elected honorary co-captains of the team. Besides Buys a n d Jappinga, who were selected a s members of the All-M.I.A.A. team, "Howdy" Schaubel also won one of the flank positions on the mythical eleven.

VARSITY BASKETBALL Starting the season of '36-'37 with four regulars of last year's s g u a d a n d some strong sophomore material, Coach Hinga developed one of the best basketball teams that ever played in M.I.A.A. competition. The Dutch five decisively won the conference championship a n d showed its ability to match a n y opposition by defeating Michigan State in a mid-season g a m e on the opponent's floor. Hope started its season slowly, losing its opening contest to a n experienced Western State quintet 55-19, a n d winning from Ferris, Muskegon Junior, a n d Michigan Normal in low-scoring games. In the early contests, however. Coach Hinga started to develop the sophomore members of his squad, who soon proved themselves to b e a s valuable a s experienced veterans. In the first conference g a m e Hope demonstrated its intent to b e in the title race by whipping Hillsdale 40-20. The Dutch lost the next contest in a n overtime on their opponent's floor, bowing to Olivet 31-29, for their only conference defeat of the year. Against their following three opponents. Alma, Albion, a n d Kalamazoo, the Hingamen b e g a n their M.I.A.A. season in earnest, takina each team by more than eleven points. Hope's next g a m e w a s one of the outstanding contests of the year, when, on a foreign floor, it d e f e a t e d Michigan State in a hard battle 25-21. With its victory at State, Hope w a s immediately recognized throughout the conference

a s a strong contender for the title. The true strength of the Dutch five w a s revealed, however, in the return battle with Olivet w h e n they trounced the Comets 43-31. The Olivet g a m e g a v e Hope a p e r c e n t a g e lead in the r a c e that it held for the remainder of the season. Following this hard-won contest the Dutchmen lost to Michigan Normal but returned to form scoring 56 points a g a i n s t Hillsdale a n d finishing the season with well-merited victories over Alma, Albion a n d Kalamazoo. The Kazoo g a m e w a s a fitting climax to a brilliant season. More than five h u n d r e d Hope students a n d friends traveled to Kalamazoo by b u s or private car to see the Dutch defeat the Hornets 28-25 in a g a m e replete with thrills. Hope started the g a m e slowly a n d the score at the half r e a d Kazoo 15—Hope 8. In the second half, however, the Hingamen started "hitting" the basket a n d displayed their championship qualities b y coming from behind in the w a n i n g minutes of play to capture the conference championship. The three senior m e m b e r s of the s q u a d , Poppink, Robbert, a n d Nienhuis, performed brilliantly in the last contest, a n d placed on the floor with Thomas, Marcus, a n d Boyink, the other regulars, they furnished a combination that finished the s e a s o n having the best p e r c e n t a g e of a n y championship team in five y e a r s of M.l.A.A. competition. The other m e m b e r s of the s q u a d , Borgman, DeGroot, V a n d e n Berg, Heneveld a n d McGilvra, w e r e consistent players w h o could b e called u p o n at a n y time to fill the position of a regular without seriously w e a k e n i n g the team. Bill Poppink, whose generalship a n d outstanding ability won him positions on three Hope basketball teams, w a s elected captain of this y e a r ' s quintet. Poppink a n d Marcus w e r e placed on the All-Conference team, while Thomas a n d Robbert won positions on the second team.

FRESHMAN BASKETBALL Although the Hope varsity basketball team won the M.I.A A. conference championship, not all the basketball talent in the school p l a y e d on that s q u a d . Coach Schouten's freshman basketball team, too, w a s the champion of its class. Being one of the most outstanding yearling s q u a d s that ever represented the college, it m a d e a good record a n d established a n enviable reputation. Out of the eight g a m e s on its schedule, the freshmen lost only one contest, a n d that to the champions of the Independent League in the city. The freshmen first g a v e signs of developing into a strong a g g r e g a t i o n b y d r u b b i n g two of the outstanding fraternity t e a m s on the campus. They then d e f e a t e d the G r a n d Rapids Catholic Junior College team in a n overtime g a m e b y a score of 28-25. The next victims of the Hope quintet w e r e the Post Jewelers, 34-23, a n d the Kalamazoo College freshman s q u a d , 34-21. In a return g a m e with Kalamazoo College on the opponent's floor, the yearling s q u a d c a m e home with a 55-31 victory over the Hornets. The g a m e with the Holland Furnace Company, the champions of the city Independent League, g a v e the freshmen their only defeat of the year. In their last game, however, the Hope yearlings climaxed their s e a s o n with a victory over the Western State freshman team, conquering them 45-38 a n d showing that they w e r e the outstanding freshman basketball s q u a d in the state.

INTERFRATERNITY BASKETBALL This y e a r interfratemity basketball a g a i n occupied a n important position in athletics on the campus. Most of the l e a g u e contests were evenly matched a n d rivalry a m o n g the quintets w a s extremely keen. For the third consecutive y e a r a Cosmopolitan team h e a d e d the league, winning the championship a n d the distinction of going through the season undefeated in the ten g a m e s of fraternity competition. By virtue of its last three successful seasons the Cosmos a g g r e g a t i o n retains permanent possession of the beautiful l e a g u e trophy. In addition to winning the championship for the last three years Phi K a p p a Alpha teams also won titles in '32 a n d '33. The runner-up position w a s occupied by a strong team of Fraternals, a n a g g r e gation which, in 1934, h a d captured the fraternity title. With seven victories a n d but three defeats, two of which were suffered at the h a n d s of this y e a r ' s champions, the Prater team proved a tough foe for the leaders a n d more than a match for the third place Knickerbocker quintet. The Cosmopolitan mentor, Coach Steffens, started the season with only three of last year's team a s a nucleus. The new men developed fast, however, a n d showed themselves to b e c a p a b l e players early in the year. The pre-season g a m e with the Prosh w a s the only contest which Cosmos lost, a n d throughout the rest of the period it met all other competition successfully.

TRACK Following the M.l.A.A. indoor track meet at Hillsdale in which Hope placed third, the local track season w a s o p e n e d with enthusiasm on April 23. On that d a t e the Anchor sponsored a n interfraternity track meet on the school field for the purpose of uncovering new material to bolster the varsity thinclad squad. The contests were a s thrilling a s they were close. Until the last event w a s run off, the championship w a s undecided, although the Cosmopolitan a n d Fraternal teams stood out a s contenders for first honors with the Knickerbockers running third. Only w h e n Cosmopolitan runners were the first to break the t a p e in the final race, the relay, w a s victory assured. The school meet accomplished its purpose in uncovering material when several new men were a d d e d to the varsity squad. Poppink, Mante, Schaubel, Hadden, Rowerdink, a n d Vanden Brink b e c a m e members of the regular team. Besides the new men, some veteran performers m a d e u p the varsity squad. "Speed" Martin, Hope's 100 yard a n d 220 y a r d M.l.A.A. champion, captained the team a n d ran the d a s h e s with "Chink" Robbert. Hugh De Pree a n d Bob Vanden Berg ran the 440 a n d 880, while Buteyn a n d Hotaling ran the distance races. "Ek" Buys a g a i n showed promise of greatness in the shot-put a n d discus, a n d Elenbaas developed in the jumps a n d pole-vault. Under Coach Schouten's g u i d a n c e the team did their best to duplicate the Basketball Championship a n d win the M.l.A.A. All-Sports trophy.

TENNIS The tennis team entered the 1937 trophy r a c e with several veterans returning to form the nucleus of a n e w s q u a d . The veteran players, V a n d e n Berge a n d Arendshorst, with the reserve strength of Visser, received strong support from some c a p a b l e sophomore material, a n d w e r e r e a d y to face a n y conference team at the opening of the season. Competition on the M.I.A.A. courts w a s very keen, but three t e a m s held a n even c h a n c e of winning the championship. The two schools whose netmen demonstrated that they might prove to b e obstacles standing in the w a y of a Hope title w e r e Kalamazoo a n d Albion. The Hornets, with the r e n e w e d services of most of their championship t e a m from the previous year, presented strong opposition. Albion b o a s t e d a crew of sophomore performers who p l a y e d a superior b r a n d of tennis in most of their matches. The entire s e a s o n consisted of four weeks of active practicing a n d a strenuous schedule. "Home a n d h o m e " matches w e r e p l a y e d with conference schools. Hope also met several non-conference teams, including G r a n d Rapids Junior College, Muskegon Junior College, a n d the Western State Freshmen. The s e a s o n w a s climaxed at the M.l.A.A. tournament held at the Kalamazoo courts. The team of Pleune, Boyink, Arendshorst, V a n d e n Berge, a n d De Groot p l a y e d a n excellent b r a n d of tennis in Hope's bid for the All-Sport's Trophy.

GOLF With the entrance of the golf season, Coach Raymond a n d his s q u a d practiced vigorously for their opening matches. It w a s a known fact that the possibility of Hope winning the M.I.A.A. All-Sport's Trophy depended, to a large extent, upon the success of the golf team. The outlook for the season w a s very bright for the Dutch squad. Four of the regulars from the team that placed second in the tournament during the previous y e a r returned a s a n excellent foursome. Poppink, Van Dussen, Hopkins, a n d De Roo were the veterans. In addition to them Marcus, Hadden, a n d P a p e g a a y were availa b l e for service. Poppink, one of the leaders in l e a g u e competition of the previous year, led the squad. There were indications that the championship battle would be w a g e d b e t w e e n Hope a n d Olivet, with Poppink a n d Novak, of the Comet squad, a s the strongest contenders, for individual honors. The season consisted of a schedule of fourteen matches, most of which were held with M.I.A.A. colleges. A few outside teams were included in the list, however. Among them w a s the Western State varsity which w a s scheduled for the -first time. The opening match of the season w a s played against Kalamazoo, Hope's "traditional athletic rival, a n d e n d e d in a decisive victory for the Dutch golfers. That match sent the O r a n g e a n d Blue team on its w a y through a successful season helping to make the y e a r 1936-37 a b a n n e r year for Hope sports.
