CLARENCE DE GRAAF we ascribe this statement of George Bernard S h a w a n d proudly dedicate this MILESTONE of 1947.

He sheds his intellectual cloak for a congenial c a p e on the college level.

It is b e c a u s e of these a n d m a n y more attributes, b e c a u s e of gratitude, a n d appreciation, that we, the class of 1948 dedicate this MILESTONE of 1947 to DR. CLARENCE DE GRAAF. 5
As the city of Holland looks b a c k on 100 y e a r s of development, Hope too looks back on its 80 odd y e a r s of progress. Both Hope a n d Holland, although never losing sight of the spiritual foundations laid d o w n by the Rev. A. C. Van Raalte, h a v e realized that to b e the well-rounded individual, stress must b e placed on social a n d intellectual development a s well. This y e a r h a s b e e n one of transition for Hope. After three y e a r s of war-time limitations, w e find it a d m i r a b l y meeting the problems of a greatly increased enrollment. But Hope is not content to rest upon past achievements! There is a n ever present determination that Hope shall yet progress spiritually, scholastically, a n d socially. 6

PERSONNEL ADMINISTRATION (Cont'd) The administrative unit in direct contact with the student b o d y is the Division of Personnel Administration. It is a large organization, with numerous branches influencing the adjustment a n d development of the student. Mr, Milton L. Hinga as Dean of Men probably comes into personal contact with more students on the campus than a n y other man. Whether a student's problem is scholastic, social, disciplinary, or purely personal, he can b e assured of a sympathetic a n d understanding listener in Dean Hinga. Dr. Elizabeth Lichty, the Dean of Women, is the personal supervisor of all the women students, either off or on the campus. Interviews with the Dean of Women are given for personal or disciplinary reasons. Popular Miss Laura Boyd, a s Director of Student Affairs, schedules the social calendar for the year. Her task is a n a r d u o u s one, but her pleasing m a n n e r makes it a pleasure to confer with her. Sympathetic a n d professional assistance is given by the Registrar, Rev. P. Hinkamp. As Director of Public Relations Mr. Clyde Geerlings is a popular individual, a n d he can b e seen every d a y moving about the campus looking for interesting subjects for his camera. Dean of Admissions is Prof. A. Timmer, a former instructor in Latin. His winning smile h a s won for h i m , m a n y new friends at Hope. Other members of the various departments of Personnel Administration a r e pictured on these pages. They are carefully chosen for their abilities in a particular field of work, a n d all of them a r e extremely popular with the student body.

THE F A C U L T Y of Hope College
but h a v e m a d e it interesting from time to time a n d spent so much extra time coaching us. They a r e a s important a part of Hope memories a s the associations of our fellow students.
A liberal education is b a s e d on the idea that one of the purposes of a college training is to develop a philosophy of life. To e n c o u r a g e a student to find himself, his individual capacities, a n d to discover his own powers a n d enthusiasms, our faculty h a s provided a n effective program in a clear a n d comprehensive way. By devising a flexible educational program each student is given a chance to decide in which of the m a n y fields of e n d e a v o r he is particularly interested a n d most likely to succeed. In this rich curriculum created by the faculty is a wide r a n g e of subjects, developed to furnish e a c h student with the general basis of knowledge to cope with the varied problems of the world. To help every student to live intelligently a n d happily a n d to understand society in general in our complex civilization is the aim of every faculty member.
The work of the college faculty h a s b e e n outstanding during this transitory year of 1946 a n d 1947. Even though the student body h a s increased tremendously, every student in given the opportunity to personally contact the faculty for careful guidance, friendly suggestions, a n d aid in the solving of their a c a d e m i c problems. The faculty h a s b e e n called upon to sacrifice study, research a n d leisure hours to meet the dem a n d s of this increased student body. They h a v e taken on a c a d e m i c teaching loads far b e y o n d the capacity ever asked of them by the college administration. Their job h a s not b e e n a n easy job, a n d after working with them a n d for them w e have acquired a respect a n d admiration for them that demonstrates the excellence of their work. In the y e a r s to come w e will have a greater appreciation for the priceless g u i d a n c e a n d direction which the a c a d e m i c staff h a v e directly or indirectly exerted u p o n us.
It would b e impossible for most students to imagine a d a y when they were not under the direct or indirect influence of the faculty members. Their position is not pretentious, but in making Hope College a "home a w a y from home", they lay the foundations for our future. Individually a n d collectively their talents a n d experiences represent a wide a n d varied field of learning. From early morning until late afternoon w e h a v e looked at blackboards a n d p e r u s e d our books, w e h a v e listened, a n d studied, a n d supposedly learned. Certainly w e o w e a great debt to the g r o u p of faculty who h a v e not only worked at instructing us,
Because of their response with magnificent cordiality to the u n u s u a l requests m a d e of them, this next section of the Milestone will give us a n insight into this important p h a s e of our life at Hope. 25
DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH English is bound u p with every waking moment of our lives. We do our thinking in English; w e s p e a k a n d we write in English. English h a s greater social utility than a n y other subject a s it is employed, in its three forms, writing, speaking a n d reading, in all activities of life, vocational a n d social a n d is the medium through which all other subjects a r e taught. The importance of the English department is displayed when we consider the importance of the English l a n g u a g e itself. Only when w e use it properly can w e carry on life a s we know it, a n d the members of the department h a v e strived to give us enough of the fundamentals to satisfy our requirements. When we look at a corrected theme or at the results of a spelling test, we begin to realize that we need even more than w e receive, but who h a s not grumbled at a difficult theme topic or slightly oversize assignment? E. BRAND
First year English, required of all students, concerns itself primarily with grammar, rhetoric a n d composition. These act a s tools for work in all classes a n d forms a basis for all advanced courses in the English department. A student, mastering these mechanical forms a n d rhetorical principles effectively, is equipped for a study of literature. Assisting the student in these fundamental courses of the department a r e Mr. Brand, Mr. Prins a n d Mr. Ten Hoor. Literature is written not only for entertainment but h a s a secondary purpose in that it disseminates a philosophy of life a n d makes contributions to international relationships through which one gains a n insight into the lives, culture a n d philosophies of peoples of other countries. Under the c a p a b l e supervision of Dr. De Graaf, Dr. Hollenbach, Miss Reeverts a n d Rev. Kruithof, we a r e introduced to the best of English a n d American poetry, essays, novels a n d dramas. For us they interpret, a n d teach us to perceive, the fundamental truths or bits of humor incorporated in each piece of writing.
Hope is indeed fortunate in its professors a n d instructors in the English department, for each one is vitally interested in the l a n g u a g e a n d literature of the field, and, by this very interest, m a n a g e to make the subject interesting to those who merely meet the minimum requirements or those who elect to take a d v a n c e d courses in the subject.

DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC The Music Department has h a d another successful year with many accomplishments of which to be proud. To facilitate the teaching of music the college purchased the Walsh House on Ninth Street which provides piano a n d voice studios. Practice pianos are available in the basement of the Chapel also. For organ students, there are practice organs, a n d for a d v a n c e d students there is the four-manual Skinner organ of fifty-seven stops. There are three divisions in the Music Departmentâ€”organ, piano, a n d voice. A student may major in any one of these fields.
MRS. W. C. SNOW
Mrs. Snow h a s full c h a r g e of the organ department where a great deal of attention is paid to the development of the church organist. The ideal church organist must b e a s much of a n artist a s the concert organist, a n d in addition be thoroughly familiar with his duties a n d conduct a s a n officer of the church. The piano department h a s Mrs. Snow, Miss Holleman, Mrs. Karsten, a n d Mr. Johnston. The student must show satisfactory musicianship before graduation. With Mr. C a v a n a u g h at its head, the voice department has enlarged greatly. Two new members were a d d e d to the faculty this year. They are Miss Cook a n d Mrs. Baughman. Miss Cook w a s presented in a joint recital with Mr. Johnston at the beginning of the year. A popular class in music this year is the conducting class under Miss Holleman. Other music classes are History of Music, Theory, Ear-training a n d Sight-singing. Every Tuesday morning during the year, the student body w a s given the opportunity to hear members of the various fields of music. A special vocal or instrumental number w a s rendered each week.
Throughout the year, enjoyed several concerts partment. These have Rudolph Ganz, conductor an emminent pianist.

DEPARTMENT OF SCIENCE One of Hope College's newest buildings is the Science Building which w a s constructed in 1938, Here the future doctors, chemists, a n d other science majors receive their training. It is from here that many outstanding students h a v e gone into the various fields of science a n d h a v e shown the results of excellent scientific background, for which Hope is well known. The fine facilities a n d laboratories plus the c a p a b l e instructing which the students receive makes for better organized a n d guided work, which gives eager minds initiative, incentive, a n d the desire to learn. It is here that the foundation is laid for future years either in research or in professional work. It is also here that the students of other fields may receive a cultural background a n d understanding to make their lives richer a n d more a b u n d a n t , which is essential for growth. G. VAN ZYL
In the Science Department is the Chemistry Department a n d the Biology Department. Dr. Gerrit Van Zyl, the h e a d of the Chemistry Department, teaches the a d v a n c e d courses in Chemistry. Besides being a master in his field, he is a master of dry humor a n d his once-every-four-years' stories keep the Chemistry majors in a good mood for the long hours of laboratory work. Ably assisting Dr. Van Zyl are Dr. J. Harvey Kleinheksel a n d Dean Charles Wimmer, both of whom teach beginning a n d a d v a n c e d courses. After the course in General Inorganic Chemistry, Qualitative a n d Quantitative Analysis a r e offered. Organic a n d Physical Chemistry, plus several other a d v a n c e d courses make up the whole of the Department. For those whose interests run along the line of plants a n d animals, a n d life processes, Hope offers a very fine Biology Department under the direction of Dr. Teunis Vergeer. His d e e p understanding a n d interest in his students makes him a s much a friend as an instructor. Both Dr. Vergeer a n d Professor Oscar Thompson teach elementary a n d a d v a n c e d courses in Biology. Professor Thompson has recently returned to Hope's Biology Department after several years of absence. Miss Frances Koeman, a recent Hope graduate, a n d Miss Jenny Spoelstra, one of the college nurses, teach courses in this department also.

DEPARTMENT OF LANGUAGES Included in the Department of L a n g u a g e s are courses in French, Spanish, Latin, German a n d Dutch. The beginning or first year course in each of the l a n g u a g e s consists chiefly in a study of grammar, introduction to a n d memorization of a basic vocabulary, oral drill a n d conversation, reading exercises, a n d frequent exercises in composition. The second year course continues the study of g r a m m a r but emphasizes translation a n d outside reading to acquaint the student more thoroughly with the personal habits, characteristics, a n d traits of the people in the countries about which they are studying. Advanced work in a n y of the l a n g u a g e s is offered,
MRS. P. PR1NS
^ Senior students in French may take French Phonetics, French Composition a n d Conversation, the teaching of French or Advanced Conversation.

DEPARTMENT OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION A Christian college receives justification for its existence in that it seeks to bring its students into a proper relationship with Jesus Christ. Although it is necessary that that spirit a n d that purpose permeate all of the instruction of the college, the application a n d understanding of Christianity a r e brought to a focus in the Department of Religious Education. It is here that the student, in a very particular sense, learns to make his "relationship with God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, such that it guide him on life's way, temper his actions, a n d render him r e a d y a n d anxious to perform God's will for his life," a s stated in the college bulletin.
As Hope College believes that the Word of God is the foundation of all true wisdom, it requires that certain courses b e taken by each student. All freshmen study "The Life of Christ" so that they may b e familiar with the words a n d works of history's most significant personality. Sophomores take a course in the history of the Apostolic Age, a n d the juniors study Old Testament history. The senior Bible course, called 'The Philosophy of the Christian Religion," presents to the student the basic concepts of the historic Christian faith. Here the doctrines of Revelation, God, Man a n d Sin, the Person a n d Work of Christ, the Holy Spirit a n d the Doctrine of the Last Things are pursued. In addition to the basic, required courses, certain elective courses a r e offered in the Department of Bible. These include such studies a s "Our Protestant Heritage," "Principles of Religious Education," a n d the "History of the Bible." The department, at present in the process of expansion, is planning additional courses, some of which will a p p e a r in the college curriculum next year. The personnel of the Bible Department consists of the Reverend M. Eugene Osterhaven, college pastor a n d h e a d of the Department of Bible, a n d the Reverend William B. Miller, both of whom received their training at Hope College, Western Theological Seminary a n d Princeton. In addition to these two, the services of Dr. Albertus Pieters a n d Dr. George A. Menninga of Western Seminary were secured. Early in the year, the Reverend Gordon J. Van Wyk lent his services to the department with the understanding that he b e released as soon as travel to China, to which he h a d been appointed a s a missionary, w a s possible. After two months he received notice that his ship w a s about to sail a n d so turned his classes over to his former mentors of Western Seminary.

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS New students a s well a s old seem to realize the vital importance of the knowledge of mathematics. The evidence of this realization can b e seen b y the tremendous increase in the enrollment in this department. In the past, society r e g a r d e d mathematics a s a subject of abstractions a n d formalities a n d studied a s a p u r e abstract science s e p a r a t e d from its natural setting. Challenged b y this association on the part of the a v e r a g e man, mathematics so altered itself until the subject is w h a t it is t o d a y â€” a d y n a m i c a n d functional field. Now mathematics a r e viewed, not only a s a b o d y of rules, formulas, tables, graphs, a n d principles to b e learned, but a s a l a n g u a g e , a method of thinking, a n d a medium through which social a n d economic institutions in this our world can b e better understood. A, LAMPEN
Hope College h a s a l w a y s b e e n proud of the m a n y fine mathematicians who h a v e b e e n g r a d u a t e d from the school. Into m a n y a n d varied fields the g r a d u a t e s h a v e g o n e to do significant a n d vital v/orkâ€”thus proving that their training h a s b e e n of the best. Time was, during the war, that the a v e r a g e mathematics class w a s composed of more w o m e n than men. However, with the return of the servicemen, one finds the situation h a s c h a n g e d considerablyâ€”the m a j o r s in this field a r e predominately of the male species. Greater e m p h a s i s w a s p l a c e d on beginning mathematic courses b e c a u s e of the tremendous enrollment of students who h a d never before taken mathematics a n d wished to explore this field, a n d b e c a u s e of those who a r e taking refresher courses. Initiating these students into the f u n d a m e n t a l operations of mathematics a r e Mr. Folkert, a g r a d u a t e of the University of Michigan. Assisting Mr. Folkert is Mr. Steketee, also a g r a d u a t e of the University of Michigan. These two men h a v e b e e n very successful in aiding the students toward getting a substantial b a c k g r o u n d for more a d v a n c e d work. After mastering the basic principles of mathematics, a student of this department p a s s e s into the c a p a b l e h a n d s of Mr. Lampen, who is also h e a d of the department.

HISTORY, ECONOMICS, PHILOSOPHY The world is constantly in the process of making history, a n d economics a n d philosophy are vitally concerned with the outcome of these historical episodes. Hope College, too, is concerned with the passing events a n d so our History Department in a n endeavor to keep posted sponsors the International Relations Club with Miss Ross a s advisor. In the classroom Miss Ross keeps the students vitally interested in current h a p p e n i n g s by being well-posted herself. Her wealth of experience a n d knowledge challenge the students to greater research a n d study.
W. VAN SAUN Philosophy
Professors Vander Bush a n d Hinga give to the student currently interested in history their sympathy a n d understanding of people a n d their relations socially, politically, economically a n d psychologically. History is related to the students' everyday lives through the philosophy of Mr. Hinga, especially where it concerns marriage. He inevitably tells each class that marriage indeed can b e successful on a 60-40 basis; women 60, men 40. Professor Vander Bush in his precise a n d thorough manner of teaching history, integrates the students' life to the full. From the study of economics the students on the c a m p u s learn how to budget not only their money, but the money of the nations. Business, finance, a n d law a r e vitally essential to the person entering the business world, a n d Dr. Yntema a n d Professor Horner give to these prospective financial czars the thorough knowledge of all those details. College g r a d u a t e s of high caliber who are thorough in their knowledge of business are desperately needed in our confused world. Judge Smith from the city of Holland aids the students in their discovery of right a n d wrong a n d how to deal honestly a n d justly in all cases which come under their consideration.
M. ROSS History
The philosophy department is h e a d e d by Dr. Walter Van Saun. This department is chiefly concerned with the various forms of philosophy or theistic beliefs of the peoples of the world. Dr. Van Saun does not leave one to discover which philosophy is best, he points out the errors a n d the good in each a n d reveals the Christian Philosophy, for which Hope College stands is the right philosophy.

PSYCHOLOGY, EDUCATION Contrary to public opinion the student of Psychology does not begin immediately a psycho-analysis of his neighbor in the classroom. Instead, the General Psychology course, offered to Sophomore students, is chiefly concerned with normal adult h u m a n psychology, a n d is intended a s a series of fundamental studies preparatory to more a d v a n c e d study in the main a n d subsidiary branches of this science. An Experimental Psychology course, consisting of laboratory experiments which may parallel the General Psychology course is also offered. Juniors interested in delving further into psychology a n d its branches are offered a course in the Social aspect, a study of the psychology of group movements, of man's social nature a n d of its expression under social control. Mental Hygiene, a survey course dealing with psycho-pathological phenomena of personality a n d the history of the mental hygiene movement is also offered. An Applied Psychology course, consisting of a study in the application of psychological principles to the various fields of h u m a n endeavor, such as, salesmanship, advertising, medicine, law, a n d teaching is offered to seniors. Professor Harold Haverkamp is the Psychology instructor.
H. HAVERKAMP Psychology
The courses offered in the Department of Education a r e intended especially to p r e p a r e teachers for the elementary g r a d e s a n d secondary schools. All practice teaching is done in the city schools, both for elementary a n d secondary training, under efficient critic supervision. Special efforts a r e put forth by the Placement Committee to secure positions for g r a d u a t e s who have special aptitude for teaching. Introductory courses in Elementary Public School Music Methods, Geography, Art a n d the History of Education a n d Philosophy of Education a r e offered. In the latter course attention is given to those historical agencies a n d factors which h a v e influenced the educational progress of the various peoples. Emphasis is laid upon the aims, methods, content, organization a n d resulst.
G. VANDER BORGH Education
Advanced courses such a s The American Secondary Public School, the Elementary School Curriculum, Teaching of Reading in the Elementary School are offered.

SPEECH, CLASSICS The Department of Speech at Hope College is probably more widely known outside the college than a n y other department. Active participation in state a n d national contests in oratory, declamation, a n d e x t e m p e r a n e o u s speaking with high ratings in all h a v e given this department high standing throughout the country. Freshmen students a r e required to take Fundamentals of Speech, which is the theory a n d practice of public speaking, with major emphasis upon delivery a n d bodily action, a n d the attainment of the objectives of confidence a n d contact. Intended a s a logical continuation of Fundamentals is Public Speaking, w h e r e continued stress is m a d e upon delivery with major emphasis upon voice control, a n d also introduction to the fields of interpretation, speech composition, d e b a t e a n d group discussion. Argumentation a n d Debate, another second year course, studies the underlying principles of debating a n d argumentation. Classroom d e b a t e s upon current topics are stressed, a s well a s briefing, a n d the techniques of securing conviction. Interpretative Reading, a n d Scripture Reading a r e both popular courses, with emphasis on the preparation of programs for public delivery. The course in Scripture Reading is designed to develop increased appreciation of the Bible through oral reading, a n d to promote effective public reading of the Bible. Community Drama, Dramatic Production, Stagecraft, Acting, a n d Radio Acting h a v e b e c o m e increasingly popular the past year with the arrival of Prof. Avison. Several Dramatic productions were accomplished, including the staging of the play, scenery, costumes, lighting, properties, make-up, etc. The Radio Acting class, which provides studio practice in the performance of radio plays w a s given a stimulant with the arrival of recording equipment. For a d v a n c e students Advanced Play Directing is given, a s well a s Radio Directing. Dr. E. Dimnent, former college president, who h a s instructed classes in all the Sciences, this year a s s u m e d the professorship of Classical Civilization. This course emphasized the rise of Constitutions a n d Constitutional governments. Main sources for classroom work w e r e Aristotle's "Politics" a n d Plato's "'The Republic".

Graduation Four happy, carefree, ye^ h a r d working years h a v e passed, a n d the time h a s come for us to say g o o d b y e to our dear Alma Mater. Graduation, a thing w e h a v e strived for, has now arrived, a n d w e a p p r o a c h it looking to the future, to see w h a t it holds for us. Behind w e leave our m a n y friends, scenes that h a v e become familiar a n d memories that remain e n g r a v e d under the classification of "The Best Time of Our Lives". Four years a g o w e started this chapter in the novel of our life, a n d this great event writes the final p a g e of the adventure, which marks us a s mature citizens, a n d places us on the long a n d ever growing list of "Graduates of Hope". We give thanks to all those, our teachers a n d counselors, for all the help they g a v e in assisting us through the hazards a n d pitfalls along the way. W e leave all to meet new situations, encounter n e w friends, a n d try to find our place in the workings of the machine of civilization.
W a l k i n g for the last time together in the traditional c a p a n d gown.

R. VAN D1S President B. VAN LENTE Vice President B. CHRISTIE Secretary P. MEENGS Treasurer
This year the Student Council, under the leadership of President Robert Van Dis, was faced with a greater challenge than ever before in the history of Hope College—that of keeping a student body of almost 1200 students interested, active and informed. The first all-college function of the year was the Freshman Mixer which was a stimulating display of enthusiasm a n d pep. On that eventful occasion the class of '50 received their long anticipated "green". The Homecoming Committee of the Student Council really surmounted difficulties
of the times by planning one of the biggest and best weekends in Hope history. Beginning with the pull on Friday afternoon, proceedings included the p a r a d e of floats on Friday night and a buffet supper and open house after a victorious football game. The "frosh" reached the climax of their year at the Burning of the Green in November after a program prepared by the sororities, fraternities and classes ended in the presentation of final freshman penalties in Carnegie Gym.
DESTINY OF HOPE'S STUDENTS The Nykerk C u p Contest, a traditional yearly p r o g r a m of feminine rivalry, w a s successfully organized under the direction of Louise Ter Beek just before Thanksgiving. Then, in cooperation with WAL, the Student Council presented a n all-college Christmas Party.

Not only does W.A.L. plan the festivities on the campus, but it is also active in money-making projects. The Penny Carnival w a s the money-making project this year. Each sorority a n d e a c h fraternity h a d a particular booth for which they were responsible. Ping-pong, Bing-o, fish ponds, taraet practice, a n d telegrams were a few of this evening's activities. The proceeds this year were sent to Saraspatak, our Sister College in Hungary.

The Y.M.C.A. b e g a n a busy year in conjunction with the Y.W.C.A. in sponsoring the a n n u a l b e a c h party for new students. Working in harmony the cabinets threw their energies into the annual Mission Drive, staging a campaign to raise funds to aid students in China. Lois Van Wyk a n d Robert Schuller were in charge of this important project. An inspirational Prayer Week w a s carried out in February with Dr. Raymond Lindquist of Orange, New Jersey, as the guest speaker. Each morning in the chapel Dr. Lindquist brought inspirational messages to the student body. Opportunities were also m a d e possible for personal interviews with him. Exceptionally fine speakers were procured for the weekly "Y" meetings a n d a good attendance rewarded the efforts of those in charge. Joint meetings with the Y.W.C.A. were enjoyable a s well as inspirational. All the activities of the year united to form a n effective element in helping to "Make Christ King of Hope's Campus". 96

When strains of "O Divine Redeemer", "Gloria", or "Make Believe" echo from the chapel auditorium, it's the Tuesday or Thursday rehearsal of the Women's Glee Club. Practices for participation in programs for churches, clubs, a n d school meetings are a large part of their activities. This year they also m a d e a special national broadcast to honor the Netherlands at the United Nations' Assembly by singing in Dutch. Every now a n d then an informal meeting at the home of Mrs. Snow takes precedence. Familiar tales of last year's trip through the East dominate the conversation of our parties bringing back h a p p y memories for those once-weary travelers a n d inspiring the "inexperienced" for next year's big event.

After being inactive for three years, the Men's Glee Club is another one of the organizations on Hope's c a m p u s that is functioning again. The personnel consists of thirty-two picked vocalists, twenty-two of whom a r e veterans, including the group's very c a p a b l e director, Prof. C a v a n a u g h . To him goes much of the credit for the rejuvenation a n d success of the organization. i
The members worked industriously with their musical selections so that they were well p r e p a r e d for a n intensive eastern tour during the spring. This event w a s the climax of the singing season. The men sing sacred music, of which "Ecce, Quomodo moritur" is a n example, a s well a s secular pieces such a s "Auf Wiedersehn." Roger Rietberg, accompanist, gained the respect of all the men for the effective w a y in which his piano embellished their selections.

REGISTRATION DAY Potential Students Registration has a l w a y s been a time of excitement at Hope a n d this year h a s proved to be no exception. The nearly block-long lines waiting to get into Graves, the freshmen asking directions, a n d upperclassmen greeting other upperclassmen, some of whom they had not seen in three years, created an interesting confusion on Hope's campus this year. Perhaps selecting a schedule is one of the most difficult parts of registration, for it is at this time that a student, in some respects, takes a step that will decide the entire course of his life. But all is not seriousness where registration is concerned. Teas, beach parties, a n d meeting old a n d making new friendships, some of which will last for life, take care of the lighter side of the occasion.

HOMECOMING WEEKOn Friday, October 25th, Homecoming w a s ofiicially opened with the FROSH-SOPH pull across Black River. Approximately one thousand students, faculty members, alumni a n d interested spectators lined the opposite banks of the river to view the traditional a n n u a l Pull between the Frosh team, which w a s coached by Junior Con Vander Woude, a n d the Soph team tutelaged by Senior A1 De Voogd. Although the Soph team w a s predicted "the underdog" b e c a u s e of the vast numerical a d v a n t a g e of the Frosh team, after much hard a n d steady pulling, the Frosh team SUBmerged a s the Soph team Emerged victorious. Thus the humble Freshmen paid with bows a n d curtsies to the Sophomores a s well a s the Upperclassmen.

SPRING ARRIVES The bright green of spring emerges from the d r a b grey of winter with a burst of new a n d different activities on Hope's campus. With the arrival of the energizing time of the year, the a p p e a r a n c e of the campus changes as if by magic. Everything takes on a new hue, a n d it is as if n e w life has been instilled into every nook a n d corner. Let us look then at some of the signs that mark this c h a n g e of seasons at Hope.
One of the first signs of this metamorphose can be seen in the preparation for the spring sports. It is said that in spring a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of sports, a n d by the looks of the athletic field on a warm sparkling afternoon, one can see the truth in this statement. But we can see that this is not all the boys' thoughts turn to in this pre-summer season, for while the fellows spend their time practicing for baseball,

Upper class members of our forensic teams a r e eligible for membership in this honorary fraternity.
A. Ponstein reports to a s u g g e s t e d gesture.
For the purpose of acquainting new students with the opportunities on our c a m p u s for speech activities. Pi Kappa Delta, in the early part of each school year, sponsors a speech rally to which all interested students a r e invited. Members of the organization explain to newcomers the various activities available for participation — oratory, debate, extemporaneous speaking a n d other types of public speaking, a n d evaluate the benefits to be gained from these activities. Also at this time new students may indicate in which field or fields of speech work they choose to participate. April is the month for initiation of new members a n d election of officers into the Michigan G a m m a Chapter of Pi Kappa Delta. Competently leading the group this year was president Joanne Decker assisted by Luella Pyle a s vice-president a n d Jean Watson as secretary-treasurer. With the doubling of enrollment this year a growth of interest in d e b a t e a n d oratory is evident, a n d Pi Kappa Delta is looking forward to a g a i n attaining the enviable record secured a n d established for Hope by its members in the past.
DEBATE TEAM There a r e some people who do a great deal of talking yet they s a y nothing—not so with the Hope Debaters. They not only h a v e something to say but know how to s a y it in a winning manner. These d e b a t e teams h a v e heatedly a n d repeatedly proved themselves a well articulated g r o u p worthy of admiration. "Resolved t h a t " — w a s the by-word h e a r d b y numerous local organizations in which the d e b a t e s q u a d s participated in line with a new policy of the speech department uniting "Town with Gown." This n e w type of program not only received encouraging responses from the local a u d i e n c e s but also allowed the members of the s q u a d s to gain v a l u a b l e experience for inter-collegiate meets. Proficiency of the team w a s also increased b y practice sessions with Dr. Schrier a n d informal discussions a m o n g themselves concerning practical problems a n d their solutions. On F e b r u a r y 6, Hope p l a y e d host to Calvin College at a practice session a n d on February 13 journeyed to Kalamazoo for another practice meet at the invitation of Kalamazoo College. These preliminary meets a r e traditional before traveling to Michigan State College for the State Tournament. This State Tournament h a s a l w a y s b e e n the highlight of the y e a r s work for all college debaters. As only six of this y e a r ' s d e b a t e r s h a d h a d previous experience in college d e b a t e , this a n n u a l conclave did not hold the usual numerous winning decisions for Hope. However, for the new debaters, the value of a t t e n d a n c e at this affair should prove itself in future competition.

The Modern Language Club is a new organization on Hope's campus. It is composed of what were formerly three separate clubs: Spanish, German, a n d French. Each month the club meets with one l a n g u a g e group in charge of the program. Usually the meeting opens with the singing of songs in the various languages. Then follows a program which may be a movie, a travelogue, or discussions of customs in the different countries represented. After the program, the l a n g u a g e groups divide to hold their own business meetings. Each year the president is chosen from a different l a n g u a g e group. The advisors for
the organization a r e Miss Boyd, Mrs. Prins, Miss Meyer, Miss Lichty, a n d Mr. Schoon. The officers of Le Cercle Francois are: President, Phyllis Voss; Vice-President, Doris Opie; Secretary-Treasurer, Edith Herlein. Officers for the Spanish Club are: President, Harriet Muyskens; Vice-President, Rachel Dykstra; Secretary-Treasurer, Allen Valleau. Officers for the German Club are: President, Preston Stegenga; Vice-President, Phyllis Haskins; Secretary-Treasurer, Nellie Mae Ritsema. 120

An onlooker noting the seriousness a n d precision with which the opponents send forth their men to battle might wonder if the life of a king really were at stake, but it is all in fun— even the crocodile tears which a r e shed over the loss of a queen. The Club is appreciative of the work of its faithful advisor, Mr. Vander Borgh, a n d is looking forward to many more successful years under his leadership a n d direction.

In the 1946-47 Pallette a n d Masque dramatic season, much w a s done to strengthen the organization. Since the ultimate objective of this group is to join a national dramatic fraternity, a great number of changes had to be m a d e in the club's files a n d records. Rules had to be established for a minimum of accomplishments that each student would have to attain before becoming a n active member. Under the active surveillance of capable Edward Avison of the Speech Department, four one-act plays and one three-act play have been given this year. Mr. Avison himself directed the three-act a n d two of the
one-act performances. Sunny Donohue was in charge of one production, a n d Betty Timmer a n d Russel Horton competently supervised the other. Anne Vander Veer, the Club's president, was very pleased with the results of this year's work. She attributes much of the success to the increasing number of students on campus who are interested in dramatics. Pallette and Masque is now established more firmly than ever before with a definite goal for which to work. This season could best be called the foundation—the strong foundation from which all future Hope College dramatic work will arise. 122

The members of the Philosophy Club do not pretend to solve a n y of the m a n y complex problems which man h a s pondered a n d studied throughout the a g e s of his history. Rather, through group a n d individual thought a n d reasoning, they seek to acguaint themselves with those problems a n d with the a d v a n c e s that man h a s m a d e towards their solutions. In this w a y it is hoped that a greater appreciation for the philosophical approach to the problems of life will b e realized.
Following a n a b s e n c e of several years, the Philosophy Club w a s reorganized on Hope's c a m p u s during the fall of 1946. Membership in the organization w a s open to all students who h a d taken or were taking work in this field a n d were interested in increasing their knowledge of philosophy. Monthly meetings of the g r o u p provided opportunities for the presentation of p a p e r s dealing with various p h a s e s of philosophical thought a n d to participate in informal discussions on the origin, history a n d present status of the schools of philosophy considered. Among those discussed during the year were; Idealism, .Realism, Pragmatism a n d the philosophy of modern Russia.

After a lapse of three years, the Hope Dutchmen renewed gridiron competition with a highly successful season. In pre-season practices, new mentor, A1 Vander Bush, assisted by backfield coach, Russ Waters, a n d linecoach Roy Davis, molded seventy hopefuls into a varsity s q u a d of forty spirited players vying for the coveted starting positions. The team composed predominately of former servicemen, suffered many minor injuries in the early workouts, but a s the first g a m e loomed near, Vander Bush's charges h a d shaped into a formidable contender for the MIAA crown. Although lacking in weight, the team w a s speedy a n d shifty, fitting perfectly with the highly deceptive "T" formation, which it utilized exclusively throughout the entire schedule of eight games. Enthusiasm of football fans, both students and local rooters, swelled attendance figures to new highs of five a n d six thousand, a s the Hope cohorts w a d e d through their opponents, winning all their home games, a n d losing but two outside battles to strong conference foes. Lion's share of the honors fell to Don Schreimer, who was elected both Captain a n d most valuable player on the Dutch squad, in addition to his unanimous choice on the all MIAA team. Freshman Nick Yonker, flashy ballhandler, a n d heart of the Hope offense, w a s also a unanimous choice for the conference squad, while Clair DeMull, Rip Collins, a n d Bob Emery were placed on the second team, a n d Art Timmer a n d Len Dick received honorable mention. 130

HOPE STOPPED Facing one of the best defensive teams of the season, the O r a n g e a n d Biue were hardpressed to conquer the persistent forces of Michigan Normal College.

As guests of the Kalamazoo Hornets in the dedication of their memorial stadium, Angell Field, the Hope gridsters went down to a decisive defeat, 13-0. Displaying a style of ball far below their early season form, the Dutch were humiliated by a n inspired Kazoo squad, playing before their homecoming crowd.

BASEBALL The arrival of the first spring breezes of '46 marked the renewal of Hope College's baseball competition, as veteran coach, Jack Schouten organized the first Dutch team in many years. Gathering a group of men recently returned to the campus from the armed service, he worked a n d molded them into a
powerful a n d aggressive ball club. Opening the season against the Calvin Knights, the Dutch proved themselves a winning a g g r e g a tion, a s they backed u p the fine pitching of Van Liere with a b a r r a g e of hits netting a total of 12 runs while allowing the Knights a single lone tally in the latter stages of the game.

sufficient points to m a k e each meet a nip a n d tuck affair. The a n n u a l winter meet of the M.I.A.A. indoor track season held in Jenison field, house in East Lansing initiated what seems to b e a n eventful season for the 1947 Hope thinclads. Lacking the proper facilities for indoor conditioning, the Dutch entered the meet with no practice, but even so m a d e a creditable exhibition, garnering l?1/^ points to finish fourth in the standings.
Hope's thinclad s q u a d of 1946, although boasting several outstanding performers, lacked the necessary team b a l a n c e to afford it a n impressive record. Winning its early meets against outside foes, the inexperienced O r a n g e a n d Blue team found most of their conference opponents a bit stronger in the overall statistics, but the work of such stellar individuals a s Don Lee in the half mile, Vern Kraai in the dashes, a n d Dell Koop with the discus, served to supply Hope with
TRACK (Cont'd) The Dutch attack w a s led by Ross who tied for first in the pole vault, a n d Kraai with a second in the 75 yard dash, while various other Hope speedsters contributed fourths a n d fifths in other events to complete the scoring. As the weather cleared, a n d the men moved onto the outside track, prospects loomed brighter, as the various positions were filled a n d the team took on the semblance of a well stocked unit. Although w e a k e n e d in many events by graduation a n d ineligibility, the
enthusiasm a n d hard work of the replacements soon a u g m e n t e d the s q u a d in fashion, a n d restored the lost power. Since the season is not complete at this writing it would be extremely difficult to single out individuals a s exceptional performers, but a s we go to press, the single meet, a decisive 74-57 defeat of the Calvin Knights, indicates that the strength of the team lies in the second a n d third place men, a n d these players should provide the necessary reserve punch to give Hope a successful season.

INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL The governing body of all fraternities on Hope's Campus is the Inter-Fraternity Council. This ruling body is composed of two representatives from each of the five fraternities with Dean Milton Hinga acting a s sponsor.
The council, a compact, informal organization, is not interested in electing officers, since it w a s found that business could be accomplished just a s easily without the aid of parliamentary procedure. Dean Hinga acts a s moderator a n d the discussions are carried on through him. A secretary, however, has been appointed to keep notes on the meetings so d a t a may be given the representatives to carry back to their fraternity.
The purpose of the council is similar to the Congress of the United States in that the men of the council are representative of their fraternity a n d make the laws a n d regulations that govern the fraternities. Amona the numerous duties to be carried out are the rules regarding rushing, bidding and initiating. Party regulations are set u p a n d grievances of various kinds are ironed out behind the doors of the council chamber. As the power of this body comes from the fraternities, the decisions h a n d e d down by the council are always adhered to by the fraternities.
Organization and supervision of interfraternal sports are carried out by the council. These include basketball, bowling, soft ball, a n d other tournaments. Indeed, with the men returning to the campus in greater numbers than ever before, the year has been a busy one for the Inter-Fraternity Council keeping the five active fraternal orders within bounds.
PAN HELLENIC COUNCIL Although one of the least publicized organizations on campus, the Pan-Hellenic Board plays a vital part in its role a s advisory b o a r d to Hope's six sororities. Pan-Hellenic is composed of two members from e a c h of the sororities; a junior member who serves for two years, a n d a senior member, the Dean of Women, Miss Lichty, a n d the advisor. Miss Boyd.
pledging girls in their sophomore year instead of in their freshman year a s w a s done previously. This h a s resulted in giving new girls better opportunities for becoming acquainted with the sororities before assuming membership. As a direct result of the adoption of this system, the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority w a s formed for the freshman girls on campus. Several times throughout the year 1946-47, Pan-Hellenic met with the Inter-Fraternity Council to discuss matters which were of vital interest to both the sororities a n d fraternities. Because of these meetings a more unified spirit w a s gained a n d many problems of concern to all students were brought to the fore.
Under the a b l e direction of this year's president, Marian Dame, Pan-Hellenic h a s continued the sponsorship of A.S.A., the freshman girls' sorority which w a s a n innovation of last year. The Pan-Hellenic o r g a n i z a t i o n h a s a d o p t e d a n e w sorority pledging system.

Early in October a group of enthusiastic men met for the purpose of organizing a new fraternity to answer the needs of the doubled male enrollment. This group chose the n a m e of Arcadian b e c a u s e of its historical significance in ancient Greece. The grandeur of this Greek n a m e is constituted in the three Greek letters, Chi, Phi, Sigma, representing the three virtues of service, love, wisdom. With these three virtues a s a foundation the Arcadians b e g a n to build.
The spring informal party w a s held on May 10th, 1947. Some of the outstanding subjects of the literary meetings were: Football Personalities, Recorded History of Popular Music,. Reading with Comprehension, a n d Reconstruction in the Netherlands. During the course of the second semester the fraternity song, March of Brotherhood, w a s composed a n d words written by several of the members. Also the fraternity pin w a s designed, which symbolized the significance of our Greek name.
Immediately upon organization a full rushing program w a s successfully carried out by the twenty-four charter members. A fine group of 35 men who accepted the invitation for membership were initiated informally a n d formally. Ten more members were a d d e d to our membership during the second semester.
The Arcadian members were active in many campus activities during the year. Several were especially successful in college forensics. We were greatly pleased with our fraternity chorus which took the first place in interfraternity competition at the All College Sing. The fraternity was also glad •to plan with Alpha Sigma Alpha the first of the Spring series of All College Informal Parties.
On January 25th, 1947 a formal party at The Marquee climaxed the activities of the first semester. The program and decorations carried out the theme of Kampus Kapers. 160

The strains of "Hail Knickerbocker" a g a i n resound through the halls of Hope College. These h a p p y a n d rollicking strains were long locked in the memory chests of Knicks who packed their books a n d answered their country's call.
The second semester a g a i n challenged the abilities of the Knickerbockers. InterFraternity Basketball a n d Bowling took up a great deal of the time of the Fraternity athletes. The All College Sing challenged the more musical. Finally a Spring Informal Party led the w a y into the summer season.
Immediately the transfusion of new members fanned the slow burning embers into a raging fire, a n d once a g a i n the Knickerbockers b e g a n to carry on those social, intellectual a n d moral traditions for which they were founded. Organizing the group and indoctrinating the fraternal spirit, which in the past w a s an integral part of Kappa Eta Nu, w a s no simple task, but it w a s successfully accomplished during the first semester by the leadership abilities both of the old members a n d the new.
Not only the social traditions were upheld during the year; the intellectual a n d moral sides were also once again raised to the high station they once held. Devotions, Serious Papers, a n d the like were presented at each meeting. A Chapel Service w a s led by a group from the fraternity. For all these activities we owe grateful appreciation to the College for its cooperation, to Prof. Harold Haverkamp, the Advisor, a n d to the Fraternity Officers who have guided the way.
A dinner at the Marque w a s the first event in the social calendar; smokers followed that. The term w a s completed by the Formal Knickerbocker Party held at the Warm Friends Tavern.
To the Knicks of years gone by, a n d to those in years to come, we now pledge our loyalty a n d the promise to raise these traditions to their height in Christian Fellowship.

eleventh w a s the date of the winter party at the Women's Literary Club. Members, dressed comfortably in postwar pinstripes, a n d their dates, attired in gorgeous strapless creations, munched on sirloins a n d laughed heartily at Frater "Abe" Lincoln a n d his bevy of beautiful co-eds. The annual Washington Stag w a s held in the Temple Building a n d proved to be a social a n d gastronomical success. "Frater Frolics", a young institution of pre-war days, w a s a g a i n a howling success. The spring sports party w a s held in May, The event of a successful Fraternal year. The Fraters also contributed well to campus activities, coming forth with their basketball teams, placing high in spring track meet, a n d having representatives on all college teams a n d class positions. In this manner, another milestone in Fraternal history has been passed. The sun of the Fraternal Crest, though it may be setting for the Seniors, is rising for the Freshmen, Sophomores a n d Juniors.
The war completed, Fraters returned to Hope a n d the good life they left behind. Reorganization w a s undertaken last year a s soon as several Fraters could find time from newfound scholastic zeal. Along with the other fraternities on campus, Fraternal took her place once more to champion men of character a n d high breeding. The Fraternal Society w a s started in 1837 at Union College, Schnectady, New York, a n d thereby holds the unique privilege of being older than the school of which it is now a part. Seven men with virtuous a n d worthy ideals organized Fraternal, a n d now seventy-seven men are striving, successfully, to perpetuate this heritage. OKE welcomed forty-nine new members in December, 1946. Art Timmer wielded the gavel first term. Fraternal meetings were held in classrooms a n d dark corners of Van Raalte. January 164

Cosmopolitans c a m e back to Hope's campus this year after a four year "vacation" a n d found that many changes h a d taken place. Cosmo Alumnus, Dr. Lubbers, h a d become president of the college. The former Cosmo Castle on Thirteenth street h a d gone the w a y of all Hope's frat houses (and its furniture a n d radio now graced the Van Raalte lounge). The ranks of Phi Kappa Alpha h a d been greatly depleted by the war; but there were many new men on the campus, a n d Cosmopolitan b e g a n its fiftysixth year by pledging forty-five carefully chosen men to the principles of Friendship, Truth, a n d Progress. Mr. Clyde Geerlings b e c a m e the fraternity's popular faculty advisor. Clarence Van Liere w a s elected the first post-war President, a n d Merle Vanden Berg b e c a m e Vice-President. "Busty" Van Dyke kept the records, while LeRoy S a n d e e regulated the finances. Under this supervision w a s held a "stag" dinner during "rush week"; this
helped new a n d old Cosmopolitans to get acquainted. And in December a n old tradition w a s revived after a four-year lapse, when the Cosmos entertained their "sisters", the Delphi, in a joint meeting. Following Christmas vacation those elected for the second term took office. Merle Vanden Berg wielded the gavel. Charles Knooihuizen, a s Vice-President, a r r a n g e d the programs; a n d W y b a Nienhuis b e c a m e scribe. At the end of first semester exam week the Cosmos a n d their guests attended the "Cosmo Sweepstakes", a formal party at the Warm Friend Tavern. The war h a s m a d e Phi Kappa Alpha even more truly "cosmopolitan"; a n d this year s a w the revived fraternity a g a i n take u p its place of leadership in every p h a s e of college life. It is with fond memories of fullhearted, manly fellowship that every Cosmo looks back upon the first post-war year of Phi Kappa Alpha.

As Father Time claimed the scholastic year, Emersonian wrote another p a g e in its glorious history. With the cessation of hostilities a n d the return of ex-service men to Hope's Campus, Emersonian a g a i n assumed her role of leadership a m o n g the increased student body. At the end of formal rushing, a n outstanding group of men were initiated into the Order of Emerson a n d imb u e d with the spirit of Love, Honor, a n d Success—three passwords to a noble a n d inspiring life which epitomizes the hopes a n d aspirations of Emersonian.
the form of a n 'Arctic Traveloa" was enjoyed by all. Spring found Emersonian once a g a i n taking her place in the All College Sing a n d May Day activities, a s well a s producing the long awaited Spring Party. Truly, Emersonian's first post-war year has been one of great benefit to its members a n d the College. Once a g a i n she has proven her right to a place of leadership on Hope's Campus. With a solid foundation in the present, Emersonian fearlessly and alertly looks to a brilliant future. It has promise of inumerable fulfillments, an unfolding of still greater achievements. Forging the binding chains of eternal friendships "and loyalty, with malice towards none a n d cooperation with all, PHI TAU NU marches forward!
Starting this new period in Emersonian's life found Dr. Hollenbach, popular English professor, becoming our faculty advisor. Joint meetings with Hope's Sororities highlighted the winter a n d spring terms. During the first term, the annual Winter party, in 168

It h a s been a full year, a n d a wonderful one. The formal party in February, our 1 Ball of the Bells," is a wonderful memory, a s is our spring party, informal a n d spontaneous. We recall, top, the All-College Sing a n d our 1 Reverie," followed by the Dorian song. And our regular meetings, luncheons with alumnae, special affairs with other societies, a n d work on our Homecoming float h a v e brought us closer to each other.
O n e of the less pleasant things a b o u t leaving school for the summer is the temporary loss of friends m a d e here. It is with greatest regret that we, particularly the seniors, leave sorority this year.
This year of companionship a n d service, getting a n d giving, fun a n d serious thought h a s left on us the indelible impression of Dorian.
