A college, wrote John Henry Newman, u is a place which wins the admiration of the young by its celebrity, kindles the affections of the middle-aged by its beauty, and rivets the fidelity of the old by its associations. It is a seat of wisdom, a light of the world, a minister of the faith, an Alma Mater of the rising generation .. To the rising generation, the graduating class of 1954, the Milestone staff presents a pictorial record of their Alma Mater, H o p e College, that they may in youth and in middle and old a g e remember its celebrity, its beauty, and its associations.

IN MEMORY OF DR. ELLA A. HAWKINSON

*


Dr. H a w k i n s o n once r e m a r k e d that she h a d lived as she b e l i e v e d . Her r e c o r d spoke for itself, a n d she h a d no a p o l o g i e s . In p a y i n g t r i b u t e to her memory w e can, then, try to set d o w n w h a t she b e l i e v e d ; the r e c o r d may be a l l o w e d to speak for itself. As a t e a c h e r . Dr. H a w k i n s o n b e l i e v e d that the student should be curious a b o u t the w h y of things. She w i s h e d to p r o v i d e him w i t h the tools f o r seeing the historical process at w o r k . N o t a t e x t b o o k teacher by nature, not a lecturer by choice, she asked questions. P r o b i n g the o r i g i n of the c o n t e m p o rary in the ancient, she suggested r e a d i n g s on conflicting ideas. She was less c o n c e r n e d w i t h stocking the m i n d t h a n w i t h a w a k e n i n g t h o u g h t . As H e a d of the D e p a r t m e n t of History a n d Political Science, Dr. H a w k i n s o n b e l i e v e d that the members of the D e p a r t m e n t should evolve t o g e t h e r in c o n f e r e n c e the w h o l e cycle of history o f f e r i n g s . She was especially c o n c e r n e d w i t h the e v a l u a t i o n of a n d p l a n n i n g for the freshman p r o g r a m . Freshmen interested her most, for w i t h them, she b e l i e v e d , the f o u n d a t i o n for critical a n d creative t h i n k i n g is l a i d . As a counselor. Dr. H a w k i n s o n b e l i e v e d that the faculty member is ethically o b l i g a t e d to advise the student to t a k e the highest a n d most self-respecting view o f his o w n w e l f a r e he can conceive. That view was Christianity to her. To help the student a d h e r e to his best picture of himself, she g a v e her time f r e e l y , not only in o f f i c e hours at the C o l l e g e , but also d u r i n g evenings a n d w e e k e n d s at her home. As a citizen, Dr. H a w k i n s o n b e l i e v e d in common sense a n d humor a n d honesty a n d steadfastness. These qualities m a d e for mutual u n d e r s t a n d i n g a n d t o l e r a n c e b e t w e e n individuals a n d b e t w e e n nations. That these qualities might survive a n d one d a y , p e r h a p s , p r e v a i l , she took her students, A m e r i c a n a n d f o r e i g n , to U n i t e d N a t i o n s meetings; she c o n d u c t e d workshops in i n t e r n a t i o n a l relations w i t h them; she p r o m o t e d the student a m b a s s a d o r s h i p to a f o r e i g n c o u n t r y ; she spoke w i d e l y as President of the M i c h i g a n UNESCO. As a scholar, Dr. H a w k i n s o n b e l i e v e d in e d u c a t i o n a l vision. She was never enmeshed by d e t a i l s ; she saw a d r e a m w h o l e . Her i n t e r n a t i o n a l lectureship to Trondheim a n d O s l o was an a t t e m p t to share her vision w i t h other teachers, as w e r e the summer workshops she c o n d u c t e d at the University of Kansas, the O r e g o n C o l l e g e of Education, the University of Saskatchewan, the School for C e r e b r a l Palsied C h i l d r e n in C a l i f o r n i a , the University of Rochester, the Southern O r e g o n C o l l e g e o f Education, a n d the University of M i n n e s o t a . Liberal, humanist, e d u c a t o r of m a g n i f i c e n t vision, Dr. H a w k i n s o n lived as she b e l i e v e d .

She was

simple a n d kind a n d strong. — Lotus Snow


TRIBUTE H o p e — Science: the w o r d s at times are synonymous. W h y ? The professors? Partly. The u n d e r g r a d u a t e p r o g r a m ? Partly. The students? Partly. All t h r e e ? U n d o u b t edly. By a l l o w i n g students to w o r k e x p e r i mentally in their fields o f c o n c e n t r a t i o n under the t u t o r a g e o f c a p a b l e a n d inspiring professors, H o p e C o l l e g e has g a i n e d an e n v i a b l e r e p u t a t i o n in the realm of u n d e r g r a d u a t e scientific e d u c a t i o n . This year b i o l o g y majors are m a k i n g slide series on chick e m b r y o s , b l o o d , a n d f r o g tissues; chemistry majors are r e s e a r c h i n g in the synthesis of t h i o p h e n e c o m p o u n d s ; a n d physics m a j o r s a r e e x p e r i m e n t i n g w i t h transistors a n d e l e c t r o n i c circuits. O n e other p r o j e c t of all three d e p a r t m e n t s is the construction of a c y c l o t r o n , w h i c h was b e g u n this y e a r w i t h a five h u n d r e d d o l l a r research g r a n t f r o m CIBA. The professors o f the D e p a r t m e n t of Biology have been d o i n g i n d i v i d u a l research w i t h the intent o f p u b l i s h i n g papers on their subjects. The Chemistry D e p a r t ment r e c e i v e d m a n y h o n o r s this y e a r a m o n g which was the a c c r e d i t i n g of the d e p a r t m e n t by the A m e r i c a n C h e m i c a l Society.

ym,--

THE SCIENCE DEPARTMENT A twenty-five h u n d r e d d o l l a r g r a n t f r o m the Research C o r p o r a t i o n was g r a t e fully a c c e p t e d . This y e a r l y g r a n t has all o w e d the Chemistry D e p a r t m e n t to publish ten papers since the i n c e p t i o n of the g r a n t in 1 9 4 8 . Also r e c e i v e d w e r e a twenty-five h u n d r e d d o l l a r g r a n t f r o m E.

Dr. V a n Zyl has also been h o n o r e d in b e i n g chosen as a lecturer for the A m e r i c a n Chemical Society's Division of Chemical Education a n d N a t i o n Science Foundation c o n f e r e n c e to be held at the University of W y o m i n g this summer. The Physics Dep a r t m e n t is e x p a n d i n g to "give the students a larger experimental background. Mr. Kleis has been elected a member of the Ford Foundation's Educational Study Committee a n d M r . Frissel will receive his doctor's d e g r e e in nuclear physics this summer. O n e b r i e f look over the g r a d u a t e s of these d e p a r t m e n t s will show the results of H o p e ' s science p r o g r a m . W h o is the g r a d uate? He is the best m e d i c a l student, the most r e n o w n e d d o c t o r ; the creative chemistry student, the director of a chemical research firm; the reflective nucleonics stud e n t , the researcher into the forces of the atom. This is w h y the name " H o p e " a n d the w o r d " s c i e n c e " are o f t e n synonymous.

STUDENT AMBASSADOR A f t e r s c u r r y i n g t e n t h o u s a n d miles t h r o u g h seven nations in three months, the European traveler i n v a r i a b l y focures his memory a r o u n d p e o p l e . Austria bccomes Herr Putschek or I n g r i d or G e r r i t or Hans. This is p a r t i c u l a r l y true for the three H o p e students w h o have been selected for European t r a v e l under the H o l l a n d Community A m b a s s a d o r p r o g r a m . The p r o g r a m calls for living in the homes of p e o p l e in f o r e i g n countries. Days a r e spent with p e o p l e â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not seeing them f r o m passing automobiles. H o l l a n d has seen Y u g o s l a v i a t h r o u g h the eyes of Don Lubbers, G e r m a n y t h r o u g h those of G u y V a n d e r Jagt, a n d now Austria t h r o u g h Bruce V a n Voorst's. N o n e c a m e back authorities on economics, politics or culture of the countries. But actually they saw the f o r e i g n nations much as w e A m e r i c a n s see our o w n n a t i o n . Economics are simply the h a r d b r e a d , scarce meat a n d t h r i c e - d a i l y p o t a t o e s ; politics are the 15 percent t a x t o s u p p o r t o c c u p a t i o n t r o o p s ; culture the books on their shelves or the v i l l a g e Abendfest â&#x20AC;&#x201D; e v e n i n g classical concert. Each of the persons w h o t r a v e l e d has been e n r i c h e d by the insight into lives of p e o p l e in these countries. Each has felt a bit hesitant a b o u t r e p e a t i n g the trite " U n i versal B r o t h e r h o o d " t h e m e . E a c h h a s nevertheless felt c o m p e l l e d to make it the p r i n c i p l e motif because it is precisely w h a t looms largest. W h a t individuals in this a n n u a l are in the future is i n e x t r i c a b l y linked with individuals r e p r e s e n t e d in annuals t h r o u g h o u t the w o r l d .
