Dedication At the root of wisdom is humility, the quiet power that sweetens human relationships and makes possible true communion among men. In a college environment such wisdom makes the educational venture a partnership between teacher and student. In his thirty-one years at Hope College, teaching German, English, and Latin, Professor Edward J. Wolters has become to all who know him an exemplification of a teacher, drawing his skill from conscientious scholarship, of a man, wise yet humble As a teacher, his scholarly attitude invites emulation on the part of his students. T h e ideal of a scholarly respect for the subject matter becomes a reality for those who study under him. Indeed, the subject matter becomes significant beyond the mere level of academic exercise. Yet with all his seriousness for sound learning. Professor Wolters exhibits a kindliness and affection for his students.
As faculty advisor of the Classics Club, he has directed its growth to a point where it will soon become a local chapter of the National Honorary Classical Fraternity, Professor Wolters frequently contributes articles to such scholarly reviews as the Classical Journal. As a man of prayerful self-discipline, he shows a deep sense of responsibility in all his varied endeavors. He is active in the life and work of his Church, often a member of consistory, and he is presently on the Board of Education of the Christian Schools in Holland. A Milestone which seeks to show that the Christian Liberal Arts College is unique in its attempt to transmute the traditional academic disciplines into wisdom, tempered by Christian humility, is fittingly dedicated to Professor Edward J. Wolters, a product and a living example of such an institution. T h e class of 1958

President's Preface... HOPE the name of our college is descriptive of aspiration. Its symbol â€” the A N C H O R â€” is a reminder that this aspiration is grounded in conviction and faith. T h i s is a Christian college which recognizes that no college can be Christian if it is not a good college. Pious pretenses are not a cover for poor performance. We desire that more be said of us than St. Paul said to the Athenians, "I perceive that in every way you are very religious". Christian education is the education of Christian students by Christian teachers. T h e presuppositions which underlie our fellowship as faculty and students are Christian. We seek earnestly in our labor and in our leisure, in our disciplines and in our diversions, to face frankly all new frontiers, to challenge fearlessly all false philosophies, to perform faithfully all designated tasks. O u r primary goal is to provide that environment in the classroom and laboratory, on the playing field and in social relationships, which will promote the growth of mind and heart and unfolding personality into the finest flower of a liberal education â€” the C H R I S T I A N SCHOLAR. We lay no claim to having achieved but only seek in all our ways to acknowledge God that He may direct our paths. In placing all things in subjection to Christ we seek the release of individual talents and powers for high achievement in all our varied undertakings. We trust that the reader will find on the pages of this book a pleasant portrayal of the activities of eager, ambitious and diligent youth with a zest for life tempered by their serious concern for ultimate realities. T o the extent that this volume portrays this spirit it becomes a M I L E S T O N E on the illustrious pilgrimage of men and women of H O P E .
Irwin J. Lubbers President
Trustees T h e private college employs quite a different form of external government than does the large state supported institution. T h e Reformed Church in America is the chief supporting body of Hope College, and governs its program through the Board of Trustees, consisting in its entirety of forty-two members including the president of the college. T h e board members, headed by President J o h n Dykstra and an Executive Board, are selected from the ranks of clergymen and laymen in the Reformed Church, and are the regularly constituted corporation under which the college acts.
Dr. John A, Dykstra has served as President of the Board of Trustees since 1939.

Hope's New Look
W i t h i n the past decade, Hope's campus has become a scene of almost constant physical change. Since the completion of Durfee Hall, junior and senior women's dormitory, in 1950, planning for and the actual construction of new buildings has played a dominant role in the Hope scene. Completion this fall of a new Music Building and Kollen Hall, a men's dormitory, is physical evidence of Hope's adjustment under the guidance of the Board of Trustees to a tremendous growth in student population.
T h e general direction of student life academically and socially is the responsibility of three deans. T h e Academic Dean is charged specifically with the task of supervising the college curriculum and dealing with any problems which may arise in the academic life of the student. T h e office of the Dean of Students is the central clearing house for all non-academic activities of the Hope student. All rules and regulations governing students on campus are u n d e r Dean Hinga's direct control. In conjunction with the Dean of Women, an attempt is made to solve the numerous practical problems which arise, and give sympathetic advice and guidance.
As Dean oÂŁ the College, William Vander Lugt directs the academic activities of the school.
Milton Hinga occupies the newly created position of Dean of Students.
Emma Reeverts, Dean of Women, is responsible for the general welfare of all women students.
Administration T h e existence of any educational institution, regardless of size, is to a large extent dependent upon those who administrate it. T h e vast practical problems involved in the r u n n i n g of the college is the major concern of four men. Mr. Rein Visscher serves as business manager, and as such bears many of the burdens of making the college economically stable. As college treasurer, Mr. Henry Steffens maintains a close check on the college finances and budget. Registrar Paul H i n k a m p is the custodian of all records of students attending the college. Mr. Albert T i m m e r , Director of Admissions, is perhaps the first person with whom prospective students come in contact. T h e growing problem of an increased n u m b e r of applications for admission and an inadequate physical plant for a larger student body is of m a x i m u m concern to Mr. T i m m e r , as he is the man who must finally decide, in conjunction with the Committee on Admissions, who is to be enrolled in the college.
Paul Hinkamp, Registrar, places the college seal on all transscripts of records.
Business Manager, Rein Visscher, carries on much of his work over the telephone.
All new students are admitted to the college by Albert Timmer, Director of Admissions.
T h e Treasurer, Henry Steffens, is responsible for all financial negotiations.
Religion and Bible In the Christian view, the embodiment of all final truth, the necessary objective of man's search for knowledge, is the God who is revealed in Jesus Christ. It is a recognition of this essential reality which the Christian Liberal Arts College attempts to instill in the student as the development of the whole of his adult personality â€” spiritual, emotional, mental, social, physical â€” is undertaken.
Henry Voogd, T h . D . Head of the Department of Religion and Bible
T h r o u g h the cultivation of knowledge and understanding of the Bible; of the basic tenets of the Christian faith in their historical development, a foundation is laid for an ability to view life and the world from the Christian prospective. T h e resulting cognizance of the purposiveness of life, of the meaning of history, and of the relevance of Christianity to every area of life is the cornerstone of the Christian Liberal Arts education.

Philosophy T h e Department of Philosophy aims to meet the needs of three groups of students, and each has an equal claim u p o n it. T h e first are those who, in search of a sound liberal education, study philosophy as an incentive to and an attempt at acquaintance with the integration of the broad areas of h u m a n experience and learning. T h e second are those whose interest and education is in a specialized area, and for whom philosophy provides the means both of broadening interest and acquaintance and of engaging in a critical analysis of the presuppositions and principles of their specialized field. T h e third are the philosophy majors, for whom the department aims to provide an acquaintance with the perennial problems of h u m a n life, an introduction to the great traditions of thought, and a sense of the importance of sound thinking in the attainment of the objectives of good living. In its entire program, the Department of Philosophy aims at developing an awareness of problems implicit in h u m a n experience, in developing thinking skills, and in reaping the benefits of the study of intellectual history, confident that in so doing, its students, whatever their chosen task, will be better prepared for it and all of life.
D. Ivan Dykstra, Ph.D. Head of the Department of Philosophy

Ah One of the primary objectives of the Liberal Arts Education is an awakening of the soul to beauty. It is often in his aesthetic nature that man can ultimately find his greatest wellspring of happiness. It is largely through that which his eye can see that a student receives his first glimpse into the realm ofÂť beauty in Art. From working creatively in art classes and individually, equipped with a knowledge and awareness of contemporary art and the past achievements of man in his attempt to express himself in various media, the student can achieve an intellectual and emotional understanding of what is the peculiar nature of a work of art.

Music T h e inspiring and refreshing world of music is a vast and exciting realm to those who know and appreciate its marvelous intricacies. However, only a basic knowledge of what constitutes great music, and a broad understanding of techniques involved is sufficient to open it to all. T h r o u g h actual participation on a level equal to personal ability, many students find great pleasure in the creations of past and present master musicians.

Foreign T h e study of language is multifold in its benefits to the diligent student. From a study of the literature, art, and culture of another people inevitably encountered in the learning of a language springs a greater understanding of all literature and art, and of one's own culture. In the rather intricate rules of operation of Latin and Greek is a matchless lesson in enlarging one's understanding of the basic structure of language which is essential to the attainment of an increased ability to understand and communicate. T h e mental discipline developed in the rigorous training of conjugating verbs, translating passages, and applying rules are of great value for the development of responsible thinking.

Rigid attention to the details of classical languages demonstrates the basic nature of linguistic com-
" M a n never understands his own tongue until he has mastered some foreign language." Such mastery of a modern foreign language, while involving ability in writing and comprehension, also involves to a very large extent proficiency in actual conversation. T h e consequent emphasis upon the spoken word is a u n i q u e feature of the modern language. T o develop skill in pronunciation, diction, and general speaking ability, an aural-oral technique is employed in a modern language laboratory.

Every waking moment of our lives is bound in some way to English. He speak, read, write, and think in English. It is the primary practical channel through which all our knowledge flows. T h e mechanics of the language, the basic tools of grammar, are essential to its proper and most beneficial usage, and as such cannot be denied in any educational program. Certainly, however, on the college level there is far more to be gained from a study of our native tongue than a knowledge of the language itself. T h r o u g h a controlled exposure to great literature and literary criticism, the department strives to promote reading with understanding and discrimination based upon sound thinking â€” the primary mark of the educated man.
Speech Today, the importance of the various forms of communication is common knowledge. Speech is, of course, an integral part of communication. T h e Speech Department of Hope College bases its educational philosophy on the belief that "Speech" is a tool to be used to aid the individual not only to adapt to social situations but also to effect progress in his society. T o these ends activities in public speaking, debate, and acting are developed both within and outside the classroom. Students who participate in these activities are under the direct guidance of full time members of the Speech Department. It is felt that this program provides for: 1) an understanding of principles of speech composition, 2) skill in the methods of delivery, 3) better standards of criticism, and 4) the development of the speech personality.

Education T h e training of effective educators is a vital function of any college in the modern world. It is impossible to think of a culture without teachers, for they are the life's breath of a society. If the information, skills, and ideals gained in a young lifetime of schooling were not transmitted from each generation to the next, society would soon come to a standstill. Therefore, the efforts of the department of education are constantly directed toward the development of teachers of character, possessing the knowledge and skills necessary in competent instructors.

Physical Education In crowded, busy college life, many and varied continuous demands are made upon the student. Frequently, health, man's most important physical asset, is neglected only through care and education of his physical self can a student really hope to maintain the stamina college life demands. T h e skills and coordinations acquired through regular participation in sports improves mental and physical health. Releasing the excessive pressures of the responsibilities of student life is an invaluable product of physical activity.

Robert De Haan, Ph.D. Head of the Department of Psychology
Contrary to public opinion, the student of Psychology does not begin an immediate psychoanalysis of his neighbor in the classroom. Rather, with a basic attitude of caution toward the interpretation of psychological events, psychological study is an attempt to help the student comprehend more fully his own behavior and that of others. T h i s necessitates an understanding of the basic psychological structure, concepts, and the processes involved in h u m a n experience, and the application of these concepts and processes as they are involved in his own life and experience. Study of such areas as "Motivation", "Perception", "Emotions", "the Individual and the G r o u p " , is often condemned as meaningless by some, yet through such study, the student can achieve an increasingly intelligent awareness of himself and of others â€” an invaluable asset in today's confused world.

Milton Lage Hinga, A.M.
In addition to man's position as a psychological individual is man s position as a member of society. Only in the group life of social organization is man's basic h u m a n need for a relationship with others satisfied. It is to a large extent in a life filled with daily contact with others that man must live and learn to adjust. T h u s , proper social evaluations become of importance to every human, and when viewed in the perspective of eternal truth such evaluations provide most of the necessary guides for h u m a n conduct. T h e study of man as a creature of social habit is applicable to every part of life, for he has always been and always will be in a group situation.

James Dyke van Putten, Ph.D. Head of the Department of History and Political Science
From the study of man's past life on earth comes a comprehension of the inevitability of change accompanied by a realization that change and progress are not necessarily synonymous. A consciousness of history as the record of h u m a n effort to solve basic problems common to all better fits the student to be a citizen of the world community capable of taking intelligent action on the complex problems of the socio-political world in which he lives. " T h e past is a prologue" to the f u t u r e and, when properly viewed and understood, holds the key to the direction of the present and the future.

Economics and Business Administration Man, in his development of a complex society has become keenly aware of his role as an economic creature. T o be a completely self-conscious individual, modern man needs an understanding of his economic environment, the conditions that change it, and the means by which he may successfully live in it. In the achievement of these objectives the Economics Department offers courses which aim not only at an understanding of economic theory, but also at practical preparation for careers in business.

It's the total that counts. Business administration students work intently on an accounting problem.
Mathematics In the past, society has regarded mathematics as a subject of abstractions and formalities studied as a pure abstract science separated from its natural setting. Challenged by this association on the part of the average man, mathematics has altered itself into a dynamic and functional field. Now mathematics is viewed not only as a body of rules, formulas, tables, graphs, and principles to be learned, but as a language, a method of thinking. Mastery of computational skills and tools needed in all possible fields of application cannot be neglected. T h e traditional daily individual preparation, often condemned as drudgery by the student is an integral part of the development of the mastery which is the basis for mathematical thinking.

Physics A scientific approach to an understanding of natural phenomena and the laws governing them are of great interest and importance to members of modern society. T h e development of proficiency in gathering and evaluating evidence by reason and experiment constitutes a very valuable discipline. In any field of endeavor, possession of a capacity for qualitative and quantitative accuracy, and of the power of logical analysis are invaluable. Clarence Kleis, A.M. Head of the Department of Physics
In the combined classroom-laboratory study of the basic principles of the physical laws of the universe is found a u n i q u e contribution to the development of the liberally educated individual.
Laboratory experimentation and observation, such as is involved in mapping electrical fields with oscilloscopes, is an integral part of the study of physics.

Biology An education of a student in the workings of his psychological nature and of the physical universe is incomplete without the inclusion of a study of man as a biological organism in his relation to other organisms. T h i s entails a thorough exploration of the main forms of life, their development, structure, functional processes and interrelationships. T h e material is vast in its scope and consequently the subject of Biology has become a highly specialized one. However, the general view of the field acquired by an average student provides sufficient basis for an attitude of inquiry concerning the natural world of living organisms which surrounds him.

Chemistry T h e universe in which man lives is God's creation, and in it he occupies a u n i q u e position as a created creator. As such, he is charged with responsibility for knowing its nature, to the end that he may make creative use of its resources. Inquiry into chemistry and allied fields is inquiry into the very composition of the universe. T h r o u g h the comprehensive study of the elements in their totality and complexity comes an appreciation of the beauty of organization, structure and functioning of the natural world. Man's finite mind, applying the principles of experiment and observation involved in the scientific method, can comprehend and appreciate the cosmic order as exemplary, not of man's genius, but rather of the fundamental unity of the power working in the natural world.

Faculty Projects In September of 1953 Dr. Ernest E l l e n of the German Department established a u n i q u e program of foreign language study in Holland grade schools. Initially German instruction was given to a small group of fourth grade students who responded enthusiastically. At present, however, instruction in German and Spanish is given to over three hundred children in the fourth through the seventh grades. Contrary to general opinion, a great n u m b e r of mentally retarded children w h o a r e n o t e d u c a b l e are trainable. Such children are the concern of Miss Mary Rhoades, a senior psychology student, who is the director of Prestatie Huis, Achievement House, a day care center for trainable mentally retarded children from the Holland area. T h e school is staffed entirely by Hope student volunteers. Although the Psychology Department uses this project as a workshop for its students, the major aim of the school is to help the children learn to utilize their capacities to their fullest extent through training in self-help.
Mr. Stekette measures the rainfall and provides a statistic of general interest.
In addition to the actual class hours spent in contact with the student, many members of the faculty are involved in various study projects in a particular area of their field. Such special projects allow a professor to explore his subject more fully and maintain a vital interest in it. In the chemistry department Dr. Gerrit Van Zyl heads an exemplary research program which is carried on largely during the summer months by senior chemistry majors and former students who have completed one or more years of graduate work. For the past ten years the research has been supported by grants from the Research Corporation of New York. Many papers resulting from this research program have been recognized by publication in the J o u r n a l of T h e American Chemical Society. In recent years Dr. Folkert and Mr. Steketee of the Mathematics Department have acted as U. S. W e a t h e r Observers in keeping a continuous record of the local daily m a x i m u m and m i n i m u m temperatures and of the a m o u n t of rainfall and snowfall. T h e readings of the station are important mainly for their use in the establishment of normals in temperature and precipitation for the local area.

Enlarged resources and a tremendously increased circulation have earmarked a new look about the library. T h e wide variety of subject matter in the present curriculum has necessitated the purchase of many new books answering todays questions and the new thorough organization of older books to facilitate research into past developments. As a result of such acquisition of additional books and more complete classification and cataloguing of all library resources to render more books accessible, the library has become an invaluable source of information to the student. T h e recognition of the learning process as essentially one of self education in which the learner is integrally involved, is a major development of the thought of modern educators. In such an educational process, the well equipped and organized library plays an invaluable role.

Alumni and Publicity T h e Hope College Alumni and Publicity Office is the medium between the college, its 7,000 alumni and former students, the community of Holland and the hometowns of the students.
T h e Alumni Association, comprised of four officers and sixteen directors, meets twice a year to enact policies and promotional procedures which must be administered by the Alumni Office. T h e r e are 14 area H o p e College Clubs and two interest Chapters which meet each year with the assistance of the A l u m n i Office. Keeping track of the 7,000 men and women who have attended the college is a time-consuming duty of the office. T h e Association, through the A l u m n i Office, publishes the " A l u m n i Magazine", a quarterly, which aims to promote good will between the college and its alumni. T h e n too there are Homecoming activities in the fall, and Alumni Day reunions in J u n e to organize and promote. T h e Publicity arm of the office aims to keep H o p e College before the public by preparing news releases on the growth of the college, the accomplishments of the various departments, as well as the individual undertakings of the students.

Clink Clinic and infirmary care is offered to every enrolled student in the Student Health Clinic. Free clinic service consists of an examination by a physician and the administration of ordinary medicines. Students who become ill can not remain in the dormitories but are required to enter the infirmary, where they can receive additional professional care in pleasant surroundings.
Student nurses, Jane Knapp, Henrietta Ket, and Evelyn Zylstra, play an important part in the functioning of the clinic.

Through participation the student becomes increasingly a w a r e of the values of friendship a n d devotion.
Freshman In the early months of every academic year, a traditionally green species known as the Freshman gradually becomes a bonafide member of college society. T h e process is carefully planned by the student council through its i n i t i a t i o n program and by the faculty through its special Freshman counseling system. However, the true initiation of the college freshman occurs within each individual when, as he struggles through a hectic first year, his vague conceptions of college life become meaningful realities. Students and belongings seem to come in every conceivable shape and size.

In spite of the numerous college activities which fill the life of the average Hopeite, there remains a strong bond between student and family. Letters home, filled with news of college life, reflect a desire to share the college experience to some extent with Mom and Dad. T h r e e years ago, in recognition of this, the first Mom and Dad's Day was held. Hailed as a great success, the special day has been held in each succeeding year. T h i s year a Saturday afternoon football game, dinner in Durfee Hall, student programs in the new Music Building, and open house in all the dormitories made the day a busy and enjoyable one for Mom's, Dad's and students alike.

As Do Alumni Competition is keen among societies to produce a winning float.
T o alumni, old and new, there is one day in the Fall calendar reserved for reminiscing and a renewal of old friendships — Homecoming. T h e event is as inherently a part of H o p e as is graduation, by which students become alumni. T h i s year, as every year, the college welcomed and entertained its alumni with a full schedule of events. Dorm decorations, a parade with fraternity and sorority floats, a football game, class reunions, and a Sunday vesper service combined to make Homecoming the biggest social weekend of the year.

T h e Hope Memorial Chapel is an inspirational setting for a early morning service.
Organ music and chimes create a worshipful atmosphere for morning meditation.
Chapel Meditations A new day, when viewed by a mind not yet burdened with the cares of the world, is a creation worthy of man's praise. Each morning, before the actual start of the academic routine, students and faculty alike pause for a brief chapel meditation. T h e typical service is simple in form and aims primarily to bring those present to a moment of earnest prayer and worship. T o the sincere student, a quiet moment for meditation in inspiring surroundings can be a meaningful experience.

T h e r e are few experiences in life which quite compare with living in a college dormitory. T h a t which a student can learn from living in a community with his fellow students is perhaps the most valuable single contribution of college to the development of his total personality. In the famed "bull session", the backbone of dormitory living, thoughts, ideals, and basic attitudes are freely discussed. From participation in such discussions comes much of the stimulus for maturation of thought which is basic to a true adaptation to the responsibilities of living independently away from home. T h e binding ties of childhood, dependence upon parents and home can never be completely discarded, yet after breathing the atmosphere of self-assertion and responsibility present in the college dormitory, the student must at least begin his development into an adult.

Commuter Life T o the c o m m u t i n g student, campus life is only a part of a busy double life as he plays a dual role of family member and college student. Unable to completely detach himself from his home, he must remain a member of his family as well as of the college community. T h i s can mean helping Mom with the dishes, or taking time out for a little sister. U n h a m p e r e d by the distractions of a noisy or a visiting dorm neighbor, the commuter can study in places and at times of his own choosing. His is a busy life of travel to and from the campus, studying and participation in family and college activities with equal vigor.

The Lighter Side Any worthwhile education must consist to a large extent of intensive study. However, a college existence concerned solely with learning from books cannot provide the perspective necessary to an adequate appreciation of life. Recreation provides the vital balance of relaxation to the strenuous mental activity involved in the process of learning. Inevitably, on the co-educational college scene, formal means of diversion include the American custom of dating. A date at Hope can range from a fraternity formal to a quiet evening of television in Durfee lounge. Often, however, merely setting aside studies to talk with roommate or friend provides refreshing relief from the strain of study. Movies and popcorn are more fun than ever.

T h e joy that comes from peace and good will found its expression as the college musical organizations performed "The Messiah".
"Messiah" at Christmas Dr. Robert Cavanaugh chats backstage with the guest soloists.
Every year, shortly before Christmas, Hope students thrill to Handel's Messiah. T h e special Messiah chorus, directed by Dr. Robert Cavanaugh, consists of the combined Chapel and Chancel choirs and other students who desire to sing. For the many who actually participate, the presentation is an inspiration rarely experienced. T o the majority of students who witness its performance, the Messiah is the culmination of personal preparation for the Christian observance of the birth of Christ.
Service on Sunday T h e Reformed Church in America plays a dominant role in the religious life of H o p e College and of her students. T h e majority of the students are members of Reformed churches in various parts of the country, and upon entering the college soon affiliate with one of the congregations of the Holland area. In addition to attending Sunday services, some students teach Sunday School classes, sing in church choirs, and participate in youth groups. Such students find great satisfaction in maintaining an active interest in a church away from home.
Holland's churches welcome students to their services each Sunday.
Many students participate actively in the worship services of local churches.

T h e philosophy of Hope College is rooted in the basic tenets of the Christian faith. T h e r e f o r e the entire curriculum and scope of activities is influenced by an attempt to create a truly Christian atmosphere on campus. Every effort is made to awaken the student to the truth of Christianity, but he is neither coddled nor coerced into his beliefs. T o the end of greater inspiration and spiritual stimulation of the busy collegian, a week of activities concerned with religion is sponsored each year by the Y organizations. During this week, mid-morning chapel services are conducted by a guest minister who serves as a major participant in the seminars and group discussions, which are the important events of the week.

A Varied Cultural Diet Fully to achieve its educational purpose, any college must supply the student with an opportunity to attend events of a more broadening nature than classroom lectures. T w o major contributions to an increased cultural understanding are found in concerts and frequent guest lecturers. In conjunction with the Holland Civic Music Association, H o p e sponsors a concert series to which students may subscribe. T h e artists who appeared this season provided varied musical programs. D u r i n g the year, the campus played host to many excellent speakers. Foremost among these were Mrs. Edith Samson, the Ella M. Hawkinson memorial lecturer, and Frederick Schuman , author and professor from Williams College. T h e role which such lecturers play cannot be underestimated, for they are often a source of views and information to which the student would not otherwise be exposed.

Intoxicated with the victory, the Dorians rejoice.
All-College Sing Societies practice long and hard to capture the coveted cup.
Although Hope numbers among the smaller liberal arts colleges, there are surprisingly few times d u r i n g the school year when the entire student body assembles for a social evening. T h e night of the Sing is one such occasion when a spirit of unity brings into harmony the relatively small student population in a truly all-college event. Sing competition is on a fraternity and sorority basis with each organization responsible for rendering a song of its own choice. In recent years the calibre of the competition has been especially high, with each fraternity and sorority striving to outdo the other. T h i s year's victors were the Cosmopolitans with "Oklahoma", and the Dorians with " T h u m b e l i n a " .
Before the Sing all groups anxiously await the beginning of the contest.
T h e Cosmopolitan Fraternity proudly clasps the cup of victory.
As Winter Yields to Spring . . . In the closing months of the second semester, Spring, the most welcome of all the seasons, gradually displaces Holland's notoriously stubborn winter weather. In view of the stirring renaissance in nature, resolutions to study effectively pale into insignificance and to all appearances Spring becomes the master of all. T h e first days of S p r i n g a t H o p e are traditionally marked by the May Day celebration. Women's athletic competition dominates the morning scene, while men's track and field events are held in the afternoon. T h e celebration is climaxed by the selection of a Q u e e n of the May who reigns as campus queen for the coming year.

Eating is a pleasure with scenery like this.
Life in the United States is hectic and confusing,filled with a plethora of social responsibilities and pressures. T o find secure cultural roots in a vacillating culture is frequently difficult for the student. Perhaps it is for this reason that the old world of Europe possesses such charm and fascination for the American. On the continent, founded in countless generations of intellectual, spiritual, and political development, is a stability of purpose and certainty of basic goals which are so illusive in our own country. T h e r e is much to be learned from an intimate contact with the thought and personality of Europe. Last year the college initiated a summer study tour program. Under the direction of Dr. Donald Brown and Dr. Paul Fried, groups of students spent the summer months abroad. O n e group traveled largely in Spain studying Spanish u n d e r Dr. Brown, while the other spent several weeks in Austria studying German civilization, and the history of Europe since 1918, with Dr. Fried. Another member of Hope's student body, Larry A. Siedentop, spent the summer months in France as Holland's Community Ambassador. While living with a French family, Larry grew to know the French mind and way of life intimately.

Y members anxiously await the cars which will take them to the fall State V Conference.
In traditional activities that range from a Freshman Beach Party which welcomes new-comers to campus, to a Mission Drive which this year benefited the Southern Normal School at Brewton, the Y works toward its purpose. As an innovation in preparation for the Y-sponsored Religious Emphasis Week, several outside speakers on related subjects were brought to campus d u r i n g the first semester. A basic concern, making Christianity pervade all of life, was treated in a series of Tuesday night meetings on "Living Christianity", as well as at the State Fall Conference â€” " T h e Christian in Politics". As the year closes, the Y's are re-evaluating and repurposing, in an effort toward more effective operation.

LR.C T h e year 1956-1957 marks one of the most profuse and rewarding years in the eleven-year history of the IRC. Being host to two major conferences â€” the annual meeting of the M I C H I G A N C O U N C I L for U N E S C O and the M I D W E S T R E G I O N A L I R C C O N F E R E N C E â€” and the dynamic leadership of the club's advisor, Dr. Paul Fried, are some of the visible reasons for the success of this year's program. T h e Hungarian Revolution provided an opportunity for the I R C to bridge the gap between the purely academic and the pressing realities of living in a nucleardominated world. An IRC-sparked drive enabled five Hungarian students to come to Hope. T h e I R C strives to maintain its all-college appeal, so that as many students as possible will be stimulated intelligently and prayerfully to seek answers to the complex problems of this interdependent world.
Playing host to the regional conference afforded many opportunities to all students.

Chapel Choir Mm
Hope College places its major emphasis upon a sound religious program. T h e Chapel Choir serves as an instrument which spreads the message of God thru song. Music creates a worshipful atmosphere. T h e Chapel Choir, as its name implies, plays an important part in the Chapel service which begins each school day. Every morning the Choir is present to sing an opening sentence and a response to the prayer. T h e Hope College Chapel Choir, touring since 1953, has established an enviable reputation throughout the nation in a few short years. T h e tour is the highlight of the year for the Choir, and as the organization travels it introduces Hope as a Christian College.

N.CP. N a t i o n a l C o l l e g i a t e Players, or Pi Epsilon Delta, is a national honorary dramatics fraternity. Membership qualifications are governed by a national board which uses as its criteria for membership both scholarship achievement in the field of drama and participation in actual theatrical production on campus.
Palette and Masque T h e year 1956-57 was an experiment for Palette and Mosque. Beginning with an old fashioned "Meller-dramer" in November, Because Their Hearts Were Pure or The Secret of The Mine by Corey which included a bold step in set construction, the organization continued its operations by presenting Shakespeare's Macbeth. This reader's theatre production made use of a stylized stage setting and intriguing lighting effects. T h e major spring production, Wilder's Our Town, was presented as theatre in the round in the Music Building auditorium. T h e year's activities were concluded as Palette and Masque produced three one-act plays directed by the T h e a t r e Production class, and the National Collegiate Players conducted their first annual interpretive reading program.

Debate 1956-1957 was a time of discussion on the topic of foreign aid. Hope's debaters joined the discussion with the proposition: " T h a t the U. S. should discontinue direct economic aid to foreign countries". Hope's students argued the pro and con of the matter with teams from Albion, Central Michigan, Calvin, Wayne, Michigan State, and Ohio State. In the spring of the year, two British debaters furnished a special challenge to the team. At the end of the year, the problem had not been solved, but the field of international politics certainly had become more meaningful.

Opus Opus, Hope's literary annual, is now in its fourth year of publication. As before. Opus is primarily intended to provide a medium of expression for Hope students who have something to say in the fields of essay, fiction, poetry, or art. T h i s year for the first time Opus also included sections of original musical composition and photography. In order to present this wider range of creative efforts, new printing techniques were used and a larger magazine was published. Confident that there is much latent literary and artistic ability on campus which lacks only encouragement and the opportunity to manifest itself, the editors of Opus aimed this year more than ever, at providing both the encouragement and the opportunity.

Throughout the year, the A N C H O R , u n d e r editors Robert W i n t e r and Virginia Vanderborgh, attempted to fulfill what the staff considered to be the tripartite objective of college journalism: information for students and faculty, stimulation of thought, and mediation of divergent viewpoints. 1 o the first end, the year saw expanded news coverage and a more diversified paper. By means of editorials on varied subjects, an attempt was made to awaken interest in significant events and situations, and in opening the Anchor's columns to the opinions of those who disagreed, it is hoped that the paper has attained the interested impartiality without which no newspaper can long survive.

Student Council T h e Student Council is an organization of prime concern to every Hope College student. Theoretically, each student on our campus has a representative on the council to whom problems may be presented for solution. Twenty-four student members and three faculty advisors constitute the council, whose main responsibilities are jurisdiction over all extra-curricular activities of the student body and liaison between the student body and the faculty and administration of Hope College.

Delphi Initiating Delphi activities this year was a lively house party held early in the fall on Lake Macatawa. Homecoming day in October say Delphi capture first place with their float. "Electro-positive Proof." At the Alumni Luncheon held the same week-end, the twenty-six new pledges were introduced to the Alumni. Echo Valley was the scene of the winter informal, "Festival in Frost." An afternoon of tobogganing and skating was followed by dinner and dancing in Kalamazoo. Later in February the traditional Spring Fashion Show was presented for the A.S.A. Society. In addition to the latest in fashions, the show featured bathing suits of the early 1900's. Under the direction of Carol Beuker, Delphi was awarded second place in the All-College Sing with "Surrey with the Fringe on T o p " . As the year drew to a close, Delphi enjoyed a successful spring formal and a farewell house party.

Dorian Wearers of the Dorian D have moved through several mutations this year. Both impish slave pledges and their cruel masters were transformed into angelic queens for the fall formal entitled "A little bit of heaven." Paper, paint, a new floor and ceiling gave the sorority room an early American air. Before the holidays the girls became "Santa Claus" for a mother and her two children. T h e minstrel show, square dance, informal. Wonderland, and especially the Sing winner, " T h u m b e l i n a " , left Dorians at the end of a satisfying year more than "nine feet tall."

Sorosis For fifty-one years the gold and white crescent banner of Sigma Sigma, the oldest of the sororities, has guided her members to a fuller appreciation of life at Hope. T h i s year, after the informal and formal initiation of pledges, the busy weeks preceding the Homecoming season were filled with work on the parade float and the Alumni luncheon. In February, after Sorosites and their escorts decided to "Paint the T o w n P i n k " at their winter formal, the traditional spaghetti dinner honoring the seniors was held. With the advent of Spring, Sigma sisters found many activities demanding their attention. Joint , meetings with the Fraternal Society, A.S.A., and Sorosis A l u m n i were held. Climaxing the year came an informal in May and a rollicking spring houseparty.

A decade of activity brought forth a highly successful tenth anniversary celebration at the Homecoming festivities this year. Scores of Arcadian Alumni joined with the active membership to commemorate this milestone in the life of Chi Phi Sigma. W i t h the addition of several new men the fraternity of brotherhood enjoyed a successful year. Serenades and open houses surrounded the memorable winter formal, " T h e Inaugural Ball". T h e Arcadians enjoyed participating in many activities of Hope College and the community of Holland, m d again held their traditional " H e l p Week" project. T h e spring informal party was held at Spring Lake in May and upheld the Arcadian tradition of a joyous and "special" occasion for all.

Cosmopolitan Phi Kappa Alpha was founded in the year 1890, and is the second oldest fraternity on Hope's campus. Its colors are green and white, and its symbols are the knight and the globe, which signify the fraternity's ideals of friendship, truth, and progress. T h e year 1956-1957 has been a successful one for Cosmopolitan. Besides winning trophies in the float and house decorations competition during Homecoming, the Cosmos, directed by Neil Petty, won the All-College Sing. Cosmopolitan is also among the leaders in interfraternity sports. As part of the International Relations Club project to raise funds to bring Hungarian students to Hope College, the Cosmopolitans sold coffee in Grand Rapids and Holland, and in doing so made a contribution of over five hundred dollars.

Emersonian Men of Emersonian started the year by pledging a well-organized and rousing group of rushees who proved their worthiness not only by planning a fun-filled joint Dorian-Emmie meeting, but also numerous other activities. Homecoming provided f u n for most of the members caught in the whirl of house decorations and float projects â€” though the highlight of Phi T a u Nu activities was the winter formal "Carousel" in Grand Rapids' Pantlind Hotel. Not long after giving Voorhees hall a television set, sing practice and the Sing were upon us. T h e spirit of "let's mingle" prevailed at the stag spaghetti supper in March where the members showed off the completely redecorated game room to their guests, alumni, professors and advisor, Mr. DeVette. Also doing much to stimulate frat brotherhood were occasional songfests, the Penny Carnival, and May Day. After a fine spring informal in May, the returning members bade a fond farewell to 17 seniors who were graduating from the ranks of Emersonian.

Fraternal The Fraternal Society was brought to Hope by its first president, Dr. Philip Phelps, in 1854 from Union College making it the oldest fraternity on Hope's Campus. I his fall saw the Praters rush prospective members and plan vigorously for Homecoming. Shangri-La" was the title of the annual winter formal held in the Grand Ballroom of the Pantlind Hotel. Late winter saw Praters and Alumni participate in the annual Washington Day Stag. With Spring came the Prater Prolics, the Informal Party, and last but not least the annual Swan Song where last tributes were paid to the graduating Seniors. T h e Praternal Society this year was grieved by the loss of one of their members, Thomas James Zwemer, who died March 11, 1957. T o m was a friend and beloved brother of all those who knew him.

SPORTS A well-conditioned b o d y is an i m p o r t a n t characteristic of the liberally educated person. By sponsoring a diversified a t h l e t i c
based upon friendly competition â€” individually,
Hope College helps the student to d e v e l o p into a sound, healthy, well balanced individual.
From the first of September when the squad assembles for two weeks of basic practice before the opening of the new school year, until the middle of November when the managers collect the pads for the last time, football reigns as the feature attraction every weekend. Halftime: A moment of relaxation for the players; a moment of keen analysis for the coaches.
"The Cripples", four Dutch gridders, become spectators after sustaining injuries.
T h e Dutch split an eight-game schedule evenly. Reviewing their record, we can be both pleased with the accomplishment of well-earned victories, yet must feel a tinge of disappointment and talk in terms of "if only...". Losing two early-season encounters to outstate, nonconference foes, Hope received a rash .of injuries which plagued them through much of the season. Playing in Kalamazoo the next Saturday, it was just a case of "ifs" as the Dutch dropped a 20-18 thriller, falling just short of the winning T D at the final gun. W h e n captain Dave Kuyers returned to anchor the backfield in our Homecoming clash with Adrian, the string of three defeats was decisively broken. T h e combination of Mr. Outside, Mert Vander Lind, and Mr. Inside, Dave Kuyers, plus Hope's first semblance of stubborn, determined defensive play combined to give a second beginning to the season. Momentarily stopped by a Hillsdale squad which just had too much depth, the gridders went on to close out the season for the second straight year with three convincing victories over Albion, Olivet and Alma. Perhaps the injury which hurt the most was that sustained early in the season by stellar quarterback, Harry Voss. T h e r e a f t e r the Dutch had no outstanding passer, but were fortunate in having a n u m b e r of fine r u n n i n g backs. At season's end, Kuyers and VanderLind ranked n u m b e r one and two respectively in MIAA rushing totals.

1956 Captain Dave Kuyers and Head Coach Russ DeVette.
Final statistics for all games show that Kuyers led the team in rushing with 605 yards, having been stopped for a loss only once in 91 carries. J u n i o r quarterback Del Grissen led the passers, completing 25 passes for 330 yards and 4 T D ' s . Jerry Hendrickson was the top receiver with 6 for 147 yards. Pete Watt topped all scorers with 48 points on 7 T D ' s and 6 P A T s. Only four seniors leave the squad this year, so next fall Coach DeVette will greet a very large contingent of letter-winners. Meeting two new opponents, the Hope gridders should be capable of turning in a season s record that will please even the most ardent Dutch partisans.

Saturday's Game 176
Practice T h e entire scope of football is not seen in the glory of Saturday afternoon. Each week the team spends many long, trying hours preparing for the weekend's game. For every h o u r of actual game time the team spends anywhere from fifteen to twenty hours in rugged practice sessions. In these sessions the foundation must be laid for a successful season. Opponents' r u n n i n g plays are carefully scrutinized and simulated in d u m m y scrimmage. T h e defense is then erected in a manner to best stop them. Offensively the practice session consists predominantly in polishing and perfecting plays that have been time tested against opponents in the past. T o supplement this, grinding hours are spent in the never completely learned fundamentals of football. Work on the sled and tackling dummies continues throughout the entire season. Each week Coach De Vette takes time out to show movies of the last game which vividly point out mistakes and show areas of needed improvement. Everyone works hard in practice. T h e results of this work are clearly evident in the precision of Saturday's game.

Captain H e r b Widmer
Cross Country W i t h only a handful of r e t u r n i n g lettermen. Coach Green was hoping for a n u m b e r of new men to help r o u n d out a potent squad. Very few freshmen responded and the harriers were forced to go through the season without necessary depth. T h e Dutch were victorious in six of nine meets, mainly on the strength of fine running from a few key men who consistently finished near the winning times. T h e outstanding individual r u n n e r was senior H e r b W i d m e r who won first in every Hope victory. He set a new course record at Calvin and lowered both the Hope school record and the home course record on four different occasions. His top performance came in the season final when he ran the four mile course in 20:57. Seniors Ron Den Uyl, previous holder of both school and course records, and Jack Walchenbach also turned in fine performances and will be sorely missed when the Dutch runners begin the "loneliest sport of all" again next fall.

Varsity Basketball â€” MlAA Co-Champs Beginning the season optimistically but with a young squad that had a n u m b e r of unknowns, Coach Russ DeVette and all Dutch partisans were well pleased by the season's results. Freshmen Warren Vander Hill and Ray Ritsema came through with outstanding performances, as did MVP Paul Benes, J u n Buursma and Dwayne Teusink. A very strong bench led by captain Bob Ritsema was also a tremendous factor in the fine showing of the Dutch cagers. After splitting two non-conference games, Hope found tough going in the MIAA, losing two of their first three games by a single point. After tucking away the championship in the Holiday T o u r n a m e n t which they hosted, the Dutchmen began playing top-notch basketball and romped through the remaining 14 games with 12 victories, copping the MIAA co-championship with Albion.
Hitting a season high of 100 points against Ferris, they frequently scored in the 90's. In league action, the cagers scored at an 81-point average and literally ran over most opponents. T h e defensive work was equally outstanding, with the opposition held to a 68-point average in MIAA play. Hope was ranked as the top college team in Michigan and many post-season honors came to the team and its coach. Vander Hill and Benes were selected by league coaches on the All-MIAA first team and they repeated on the A l l - M i c h i g a n NAIA team along with Ray Ritsema. Coach DeVette was honored as NAIA coach of the year in Michigan. W i t h the loss of only Bob Ritsema through graduation, the Dutch are likely to remain a dominant basketball power for several years, upholding a long tradition of fine basketball at Hope College.

JV Basketball U n d e r Coach Gord Brewer, the freshmen squad compiled a satisfactory 6-5 record this year. Playing predominantly local independent teams, the frosh found that top conditioning enabled them to outlast their opponents. T h e season's peak came in the second Calvin game when the JV's rang up 62 points in the first half and went on to cop an 85-78 victory. T h e squad featured balanced scoring, and team effort was responsible for their successful season. A n u m b e r of boys displayed good potential and may well move to the varsity next year.

New cheers are worked out in practice sessions.
T h e cheerleaders spark the efforts of the fans to express their support for the Dutchmen at all home football and basketball games. W h e n a touchdown seems imminent or when the whole basketball team hits a hot streak to pull into the lead, the cheerleaders find their task simplified. But when things are not going so well they are noticed. An apathetic crowd can do little to help a team's effort, and when the cheerleaders can keep the fans pulling for the team throughout the game? they do their job superbly. Willing hours of practice in writing cheers and coordinating their motions, a willingness to brave cold November weather clad simply in their orange and blue sweaters, a willingness to sit on the floor when the auditorium is packed to capacity â€” these are the reasons we tip our hats in appreciation to our cheerleaders.
Baseball Russ DeVette returned to the baseball coaching duties in the spring of 1955. Graduation had thinned the ranks of the lettermen and only seven remained. T h u s most positions were keenly contested and a n u m b e r of new men saw action. T h e pitching staff lacked depth, and since the MIAA plays only double-headers, DeVette had to call on the same hurlers continually. Jack Kempker and Wayne Westenbroek turned in commendable performances, as did Dave Woodcock behind the plate. T h e team posted a winning record, ending with a 7-6 won-lost record. W i t h several fine pitching prospects among the new men and the return of most of the lettermen from 1955, the baseball squad should be able to improve its league standing this spring, possibly dethroning defending champion.

Golf W i t h three experienced lettennen returning, the prospects for the 1955 season were bright. Ray DeDoes, Bill Holt and Bill Kramer were all fine golfers and the problem facing coach T i m m e r was to find two other men of equal skill. He was not entirely successful, but Bob Burwitz and Joe Martin played well after winning places on the squad. T h e Dutch were somewhat erratic, first losing three straight and then winning the next trio of matches. Ray DeDoes was usually medalist, but Holt and Kramer also shot in the 70's and low 80's throughout the season. DeDoes, Burwitz and Martin return this spring and along with Bill Holt's brother Bob, an equally fine golfer, should provide the Dutch linksmen with the likelihood of an improvement on the '55 record.

O p e n i n g the 1955 season, coach J o h n Van Ingen faced a task of completely rebuilding the net team, with only the n u m b e r one singles man, J o h n Jeltes, back from the previous spring. Sophomore T i g e r T e u s i n k and freshmen Phil Boersma and J i m Remmelts stepped right into singles spots behind Jeltes, and surprised the conference with their fine play. Losing only to Kalamazoo in dual matches, the Dutch copped second place in M I A A tournament play. W i t h Athletic Director A1 Vanderbush taking over the coaching duties this spring, the outlook is again dependent u p o n how well the new men can fill the open positions. If they succeed, the netters will certainly win their share of matches and rank high in MIAA standings again in 1956.

T h e record of the 1955 track squad was neither surprising nor disappointing. Coach Green realized that there was little depth, but he was blessed with a handf u l of outstanding performers. T h e y ran their hearts out and were able to pull into second place in the final M I A A standings. Leading the way were Paul Wiegerink and J i m Hilmert who broke MIAA records of 19 years standing in the 220 low and 120 high hurdles respectively. Dave Spaan starred in the 440 yard dash, setting a new school record and winning the conference meet. Shot putter Larry T e r Molen and miler H e r b W i d m e r also won several firsts in dual meets and were big assets to the team. But overall strength was weak, and although all but W i d m e r return this spring, new strength will have to be found in the distances and the jumps. T h e r e t u r n to 1954 form of MIAA record holder J o h n DeVries may be a good start for the thinclads in climbing the final step into first place this spring under the new coach, Gord Brewer.

Intramurals A diversified program of intramural athletics gives opportunity to all Hope's men to participate in a sport. T h e five fraternities, the independents and the Seminary all have opportunity to enter teams in a series of eight different sports ranging from major ones as football, basketball and softball to minor sports as handball, golf or ping-pong. T h e y range widely, allowing everyone to find something he enjoys to play. Points are awarded for each sport, with the highest yearly total winning the coveted All-sports trophy. T h e Cosmos are defending champions, but each of the other fraternities are eyeing the trophy enviously. T h e program this year is under the student direction of J i m Cooper, with Dr. Green serving as faculty advisor.

Women's Athletics Under the watchful eye of Miss Bried, Hope's co-eds participate in a wide variety of both intramural and inter-collegiate athletics. Be it square dancing, volleyball or track, the girls are able to chose the intramural activity they enjoy most. On an inter-collegiate basis, tennis is the dominating sport, as the MIAA has active competition. Archery and basketball are also inter-collegiate sports for the Dutch maids, and golf seems likely to be added in the near future.
