'Dedication


r

A man w h o does all those " b e h i n d the scenes" jobs. A man whose u n t i r i n g efforts perhaps goes unnoticed by some students, A man w h o deserves a great deal of praise f o r the inexhaustible time and energy he gives to H o p e College. T h i s man — Clarence Kleis, Chairman of the Physics D e p a r t m e n t . Professor Kleis is an alumnus of H o p e College Class of 1919. H e did his graduate work at the University of Chicago and the University of Michigan and received his A . M . f r o m the latter. For two years he taught in the H o p e Prep department and he then became head of the Physics Department.

Besides his duties in the Science Building, Professor Kleis is kept busy with his other activities on the campus. H e is chairman of the Athletic Committee. H e has care of the caps and gowns used for graduation and other ceremonies, the public address system used in chapel and the moving picture equipment. His community work has primarily been in Church work. H e has given his time to Sunday School, Christian Endeavor and the Boy Scouts. W i t h sincere appreciation for the part he has played in our lives and the life of H o p e College, for his never-ending interest in the students, and for his u n f a i l i n g efforts, we, the class of nineteen hundred fifty-one dedicate this Milestone of 1950 to Clarence Kleis.

Since the team carries only eight men, and plays six in inter-collegiate competition, it will be necessary to hold preliminaries for the purpose of narrowing d o w n the sixteen m a n field. These preliminaries are scheduled for the 13th and 14th of April, at the Saugatuck Golf Course w h e r e all h o m e games are held. A l t h o u g h the job may well prove to be a difficult one.

T h e T h i r d M o v e m e n t of the D e u p h i Symphony began in tones of perfect resonance with Margery Angus, Janice V a n d e r B o r g h and Isla Streur and the St. Patrick's Day potluck. As the symphony drew to a close, the tempo increased as the musicians played at the all day Spring Party and the spring house party. O l d musicians retired with sad farewells as the final strains died away.

D o r i a n s may look back on another year filled with d e l i g h t f u l and amusing memories. Activities began at the traditional house-party where, aside f r o m eating, and roaming around, we actually elected officers. Esther Schmidt, Bea V a n d e r Ploeg, Nancy Smith, and Margaret M o e r d y k formed the executive committee for the fall term.

i

At our ever-impressive f o r m a l initiation ceremonies, eight new members joined the camaraderie of Dorian. They were given the yellow rose, the symbol of D o r i a n f r i e n d s h i p . H o m e c o m i n g is always an event for Dorians because of the t r a d i t i o n a l b r e a k f a s t , at which old f r i e n d s h i p s are renewed and new ones are formed. Dorians attended the H o m e c o m i n g G a m e as a sorority, as usual. In the winter election, G e r t r u d e K l o o s t e r m a n , Maisie Korteling, and Nancy Smith were elected to g u i d e us t h r o u g h the big occasion of the formal party, A D r e a m e r ' s H o l i d a y " . T h e party is a festivity which few Dorians will forget.

A n o t h e r activity which we will remember always was our participation in the All-College Sing. Many a l u n g was burst d u r i n g our strenuous rehearsals.

"Sibylline, we'll be to you ever loyal and t r u e — " these words to the Sib H y m n sounded f o r t h with new gusto as "Sib Sisters" gathered to begin a new year with breathless anticipation. Initial interest was the " R o u n d Robin T e a " plans with " M o o d Scenes" as a program, giving t h e new sophomores a preview of sorority life. B i d d i n g began and results were the ranks of the graduated seniors well refilled. T h e old and new members got informally acquainted along the "4-mile trail". Yet formal initiation was still a t h i n g of the f u t u r e . In a solemn impressive ceremony, by the w a r m g l o w of candlelight, the pledges w e r e admitted to f u l l membership into the sorority. Laurel wreaths and roses adorned the new members and t h e weeks following the girls sported the older members sorority pins. Lassies learned about sorority life f u r t h e r around homecoming time w h e n they had a big h o m e c o m i n g dinner w i t h the alumnae. A l t h o u g h w e d i d n ' t get the prize, we were proud of our impressive float called, " T h e Star of the W e s t " . Laughter and song filled the air as Sibyls and their escorts went for a gay N o v e m b e r hayride. Food a n d f u n rounded up a good evening for all. Inevitably, it comes to t h e time of t h e f o r m a l party and all the Sibs and their escorts went out to the party with a dreamy atmosphere to the scene of the "Winter Wonderland". Novel notions were always in order at the many joint meetings. W e began practice f o r the sing, and plans for the spring party which was a play day f o r all. Enjoyment is what the Sibs stand for, now and later!

Looking back on its forty-third year, Sigma Sigma finds a year filled to overflowing with Sorosis spirit. " T h e Gay Nineties Review" introduced the Sophomores to Sorosis at the R o u n d Robin Tea and soon a f t e r w a r d , new pledges were e n t e r t a i n e d at the

Sorosis

"Bakes" in true Sorosis style. H o m e c o m i n g brought all Sorosites out to luncheor with their sister A l u m n a e at the T u l i p Room in the W a r m Friend Tavern. Sigma Sigma colors adorned the lapel of each m e m b e r a l o n g with a big golden crysanthemum, and Sorosites proudly took honorable mention for their H o m e c o m i n g float. O n e chilly night in N o v e m b e r Sorosites gathered with their dates f o r an i n f o r m a l party at Miller's Barn where a blazing fire warmed the hearts as well as the toes. T h e annual Christmas Tea was held in gay holiday spirit with election of officers for another year as Sorosites joined in wishing all a Merry Christmas. January rolled around and e x c i t e d l y S o r o s i t e s worked and p l a n n e d f o r their f o r m a l party. T h e " N i g h t of K n i g h t s " arrived and proudly Sorosis displayed its talent in a gay evening at the Continental Room of the H o t e l Pantlind. W i t h M a r c h came the All-College Sing and Sorosis once again raised its voice in unsurpassable quality as " W i t h o u t a S o n g " was sung. A Spring party brought along m o r e happy times f o r Sorosites and their beaux. W i t h Spring came thought of graduation and after a house party f o r the Senior girls, Sorosis closed the door on its fortythird year and looked f o r w a r d to one just as fine in "Sweet

At an impressive candlelight ceremony our pledges became full-fledged Thesaurians. T h e sorority song took on a new meaning as we clasped hands with our new sisters. "Land of the M i d n i g h t S u n " was the theme of our informal party. T h e Thetas declared this hayride one of the most successful in Thesaurian History. T h e refreshments served a f t e r w a r d at the Marqee were also of the best. Spring semester brought with it the Penny Carnival with t h e Theta Nicolodian, the All-College Sing, and the most important of all, our formal party on April 28, Theta officers are Lorraine Van Farowe, president; Eleanor Robinson, vice-president; Lucille Fikse, secretary; Louise Lola, treasurer.

An enthusiastic g r o u p of f r e s h m a n girls met for the first time at W e s t Hall f o r the opening of the first semester. Everyone was anticipating the f u n and companionship of A l p h a Sigma Alpha, and they certainly were not disappointed. A. S.

T h e first e n t e r p r i s e o f t h e y e a r was t h e float designed f o r the H o m e c o m i n g parade. Preceding the parade a breakfast was held at the Mary Jane Restaurant. M e m b e r s went to the football g a m e together, all wearing yellow m u m s tied with blue bows. O n December ninth A. S. A. members and their guests were entertained at the "Candy Cane Capers", an informal Christmas party held at t h e V. F. W . Club. T h e rooms were cleverly decorated, a fine prog r a m was presented and lots of Christmas spirit was evident. T h e A. S, A. girls wearing colorful cottons added a gay touch to the All-college Sing. T h e officers for A. S. A. first semester were Connie Boersma as President, Esther K e n n e y as Vice-president, Barbara Soper as Secretary, a n d M a x i n e M u l d e r as Treasurer.

A n o t h e r 116th year of the Fraternal Society has drawn to a successful close. A f t e r the rushing period, twenty-seven Praters were formally initiated in a ceremony at H o p e R e f o r m e d Church. T h e first event f o r Praters, young and old and their guests, was enjoyed at the Country Club following the homecoming football game. T h e high-light of the first semester's p r o g r a m was the winter formal held at the Rowe Hotel in G r a n d Rapids, presided over by officers: Paul Hendrickson, Bob Koop, Myron Van Ark, a n d Pred B r i e v e . A d i n n e r at the M a r q u e e marked the annual W a s h i n g t o n Day Stag, a fine b e g i n n i n g for the second semester activities under the new leadership of officers: Bob Koop, Henry Visser, G l e n n Blocker and Pred Brieve. Joint meetings with the Cosmopolitan and Emer:onian fraternities and the Sorosis sorority were held d u r i n g the year.

T h e Prater Prolics, a featured event on the college campus calendar was again the talk of the town. O n May Day the Praternal society showed exceptional ability at the track meet continuing the high attainments- shown by their league basketball teams. T h e Spring party found Praters and guests enjoying games, dancing and fellowship before the "Swan Song," the final event of the year. Por the seniors, it revived many memories of former Prater events. This was the parting of the ways for many Prater brothers and the final handclasps were given, with the t h o u g h t uppermost in every heart: " T h e sun never sets on the Praternal Crest."

As the loyal members of K a p p a Eta N u reminisce, they will long remember the traditional serenade, the H o m e c o m i n g events, the parties, the date nights, joint meetings and those ever popular hay rides. N o t to be forgotten, the W i n t e r Formal at the Morton House in G. R. with the theme of "Cann o n b a l l " and the Spring Party which was so much f u n for all. T h e Knicks entered in on the inter fraternity sports. May Day events and the All-College Sing All events were entered into with spirit f r o m all the Knick men. Probably the highlight of all the fraternity projects was the adoption of Eliftherios Sfachtos, a Greek war o r p h a n , w h o is k n o w n to us as Butch. Kappa Eta N u takes great pride in being the foster fathers of this boy w h o was not so fortunate as others. T h e purpose of this adoption was to the honor of those w h o gave their all to save us.

So it is another memorable year passed with fellowships and friendships. Memories are truly great to possess, but unfortunately, they are not active, living symbols. A goal w o r t h w h i l e to carry with us t h r o u g h o u t the world is one of our Knick alumnus, "Let each o n e of us put into our daily living, the principles and ideals we have gained together as fraternity brothers." This year's officers were as follows (1st semester followed by 2nd s e m e s t e r ) : President, Paul Cook and Jack Ryskamp; Vice-president, Jack Ryskamp and Martin Mepyans; Secretary, Jack Brinkerhoff and Charles L i n k ; Treasurer, La V e r n e Sikkema and G o r d o n M o o r e ; and S a r g e a n t of Arms, W a y n e Fieldhouse both semesters.

O n c e again the All-College Sing has culminated weeks of practice and planning. A l t h o u g h started only seven years ago, this annual contest has grown to be o n e of the m a j o r events in the college calendar. O n e of the reasons for this is that every sorority and fraternity on the campus enters the contest. Since there is a rule that every member of the society must participate, a majority of t h e college students take part in the Sing. Interest, spirit, and cooperation on the part of the whole student body are at their highest peak d u r i n g the weeks preceding this event. Each society is rated by points on such items as tone, interpretation, technique, direction and general effect. T h e evaluation of these qualifications is determined by judges chosen f r o m near-by communities. T h e All-College Sing is entirely a student production. Each g r o u p selects its song, director, and accompanist. T h e r e is no faculty assistance in the preparation of the selections. This brings out student musicianship which has not been realized before. T h e amount of talent on our campus is often surprising. T w o students appointed by the Student Council are in charge of the general p l a n n i n g of the contest, and they, in turn, choose other students f o r particular duties. Each year finds that the difference in points between the societies grows smaller and smaller. Tiiis year the first place winners of the coveted cups were the Sorosis Sorority and the Arcadian Fraternity. T h e Arcadians took first honors last year also. Second places were awarded to the Delta Phi Sorority and the Cosmopolitan Fraternity. Student co-chairmen of the All-College Sing this year were Jeanne Ver Beek and Robert W e s t e r h o f f . T h r o u g h their efforts and t h r o u g h the co-operation of each fraternity and sorority, the Sing was again a highlight of the year.

Camera Club T h e job of a Camera Club is to produce pictures. As the club had quite a few new members, stress, this year, was put on the f u n d a m e n t a l principles of taking a picture, developing it, and p r i n t i n g or enlarging it.

In the interest of developing this f u n d a -

mental knowledge, an evening was devoted for the instruction and learning of how to enlarge a picture. Consequently, this also included the general art of developing a print.

A field trip is planned for the

purpose of g o i n g out and taking a picture of "anyt h i n g that appears photogenic." T h e results of such a trip proves to be promising. T h e club is small, just twelve members, but the persons in the organization are interested and ambitious.

A letter was received

f r o m K a p p a A l p h a Mu, a national honor society in photography, a n n o u n c i n g a nation wide college contest. It is hoped that several entries will be m a d e f r o m this college and that these entries will be winners. T h e club has worked hard and will produce the best of pictures.

Health Clinic Health is of m a j o r concern on the H o p e College campus. W i t h o u t it, students lose their efficiency and are unable to carry on in their fullest capacities. All kinds of ills are treated here, f r o m the smallest scratch to m a j o r post-operative care. T h e Clinic has g r o w n f r o m a one-room affair in Voorhees Hall, with a doctor and o n e registered nurse, to a ten-room structure accommodating nine patients with a staff of a doctor and five registered nurses. A cozy, friendly atmosphere always prevails within the confines of our clinic, which makes it a " H o m e away f r o m h o m e " for our students. Little gems of philosophy are neatly dished out by the tiny Dutch cook, Mrs. D e Boer, along with her delicious food. In charge of our health service are D r . W i l l i a m Moerdyk and Mrs. Moerdyk, R.N., w h o just recently returned f r o m the Arabian mission field. A m o n g those assisting are Betty Bardwell, Jean Brondyke, 1'elicia Hrbek, and Jennie W y n a l d a , w h o are also students at Hope.

Dining Hall Workers W No

tipping,

please!

O n e of the most vital parts of college life is that of the dining halls and its workers. A great majority of the out-of-town students eat at either T e m p l e or Voorhees D i n i n g Halls. Mr. Rein Visscher is in charge of both eating places. Canute V a n d e r Meer is h e a d - w a i t e r and Mrs. Marie Languis is h o s t e s s at T e m p l e while Hilda Baker serves as head-waitress at Voorhees. O t h e r workers in the dining halls include waiters, dishwashers, and cooks. Considering the large numbers of students w h o must be accommodated each meal, it is necessary that there be great cooperation and a cheerful attitude a m o n g all the workers to maintain the efficiency and pleasantness that is f o u n d in the dining halls.
