Kalamazoo College Receives National Honor Kalamazoo College has been elected to membership in the College Entrance Examination Board, according to infor!mation received by President John Scott Everton. The College will be entitled to send one voting and one non-voting representative to meetings of the Board. Kalamazoo College was one of ten colleges elected to this national organization this year. Membership constitutes a form of national recognition for the type of work done here.

Book Drive A "book drive" has been inaugurated by the KALAMAZOO COLLEGE INDEX under the direction of Robert Dye, editor, to obtain gifts of books for Minnie Mandelle Memorial Library. Purpose of the plan was announced as being twofold : to stimulate interest in the library, and to help fill some of the empty shelves in the stacks. Students and faculty members were asked to contribute books from their personal libraries. Departmental heads would then make selections for books to be placed in the library. Other books would be offered at a "book sale," the proceeds to go to purchase new volumes for the library. Page 2

rrbnpressions of Homecoming'' This was my first Homecoming in fifty-four years. True, in the interval, a daughter has graduated and another has spent two yea rs on K campus. As chief of transportation and chancellor of the exchequer, I had visited the college from time to time. Now I had come to muse, to compare the new with th e old, to appraise their values. From a point near the site of Old Dorm, I looked north, south, east, west. Everything new? Not so. God's rolling hills and tre es, old but eyer new, remain. I then tuned in that human television, called memory, which enables us to see in vivid colors the scenes of yester-years- down the hill, beside Mirror Lake, across the tracks and Asylum avenue to Old Main; three floors, stove heated, lamp lighted. I did not tarry, for my arms seemed to ache at the thought of the cords of birch and maple chunks carried to th e nine stov es which furni shed the heat. Then I saw Old Dorm. Three floors- and each room with a stove and kerosene lamp, a water pail and wash bowl. The third and last building of that day was Ladies Hall, where the boys, who could afford it, were permitted to share the dining hall. These three buildings furnished the shelter and equipment of K college fifty years ago.

The scene changed and I saw our new President Slocum, Kai-Gar Axtell, Professors Brooks and Jenks, Toughy Williams and good old Dr. Haskell,

the man of the Book. Just west of the dorm I saw John Smith, Fox, MacWilliams, Magill, HuJson, Grabiel, Tredway, Gordon, MacMullen, Mac Dougal, Dinsmore, Girdwood, the Haynes, the Yaples, Dowel, Maxfield, Oldfield, Hutchins, and others kept coming into line of vision. Then there were the gi rl s, bless them, so genuine, helpful and so free from snobbery. I thought of the positions of leade rship, which so large a percentage of these had filled in church, in state, in the professions and business world. How can this be accoun ted for? I wonder if "the fellowship in sacrificial living" helped to develop re sourcefulness, selfreliance and a sense of mission. How gladly would I have grasped the hands and looked in to the faces of these comrades of the way. During the whole day not one of these had named my name or clasped my hand. Do you wonder that for a moment that a sense of loneliness settled down up on me? The cloud was soo n dis(Co~tfinued

Alumni Meetings Conferences are being held this fall in various alumni centers for discussion of plans for the January Convocation, the development program of the college, and future alumni meetings in the respective areas. While Dr. Everton was on the east coast during the early part of October to attend the American Council on Education Conference in Washington, D .

At the November meeting of the Board of Trustees, plans were approved for an important program which will have far-reaching effects on the future of Kalamazoo College. Full announcement of these objectives will be made early in 1951. Once again we are approaching the Christmas season. War and mobilization are grim reminders that peace on earth is still afar off, but perhaps for a little while in this Christmas season we may catch a vision of a more enduring way of peace and good will and give ourselves more completely to that spirit.

College Financial Report For the Past Year Given The following financial statements taken directly from the Treasurer's Report as of J une, 1950, for the last fiscal yedr, are printed in the belief that the alumni are interested in the financial condition of the college. It will be noted that the College ended the year with an operating surplus of $4,254,81, as compared with a substantial deficit of the year before. This was made possible by an increased total of gifts from friends and alumni. Kalamazoo College is one of the few colleges of the nation to have completed the past year "in the black."

K College Hornets Make Outstanding Season Record By Fred Winkler Coach Lloyd (Dob) Grow's Kalamazoo football team furnished most of the excitement in the 1950 MIAA football race by finishing a surprising second, half a game behind league champion Alma, with a record of four wins and one loss. The high-flying Hornets, who broke six conference offensive records during the season, missed winning the school's first undisputed conference grid title in thirteen years by losing to Alma, 19-13, in a thrilling championship game. After two early-season losses, the gridders mastered the nelw Split T formation to win five of their remaining seven games and lead the MIAA race until the last contest of the season. -------------A 48-32 victory over Wooster of Ohio, which set a new college modHornets smashed for three more ern scoring record, was the team's scores within two minutes, eventlast of three non-conference games ually running the score to 49-19 before starting MIAA competition. before reserves took over.

a 21-20 win in a close ball game with Conrad Hinz' three perfect extra point placements the margin of difference. Next the Hornets met Hillsdale, defending champion and the preseason favorite, in the Dales Homecoming game. Hillsdale took a commanding 21-0 lead, early in the third quarter, and the game began to have the appearance of a rout. But Kazoo's swift-striking forces were not to be denied. Two scores brought the count to 21-14, but on the ensuing kickoff a Dale back ran the length of the field to score, giving Hillsdale a safe-appearing 27-14 lead. Playing with a determinedness and desire to win seldom seen on the football field, the Hornets moved almost the length of the gridiron for their third touchdown. And then, with eleven minutes remaining in the game, diminutive (Continued on page 8)

Annual Homecoming Pleases Many Returning Alumni

DELAYED ACTION Reports from various colleges of the country indicate that a number of them were embarrassed in the matter of Homecoming announcements reaching the alumni late. Kalamazoo College was included in this group because a number of alumni reported that they did not receive the ALUMNUS or the Homecoming mailing piece with the reservation card until two or three days before Homecoming. It appears that this difficulty existed only in deliveries from some post offices. Other post offices gave this second-class mail fairly prompt service. The ALUMNUS had been mailed on Oct. 11 and 12. The mailing piece with the reservation card had been mailed on Oct. 10 and 11. Previous experience had shown that if the cards were mailed too soon, they were laid aside and forgotten in many cases.

"It has been a glorious Homecoming," so stated Dr. Allen B. Stowe, Homecoming Banquet chairman. His audience indicated complete agreement. One of the best Homecoming celebrations in years, was the Homecoming of 1950. A goodly representation of alumni, perfect weather, a successful Homecoming football game which was sensational in the first half, and a truly enjoyable banquet and program were the high-lights of the day which began with registration and concluded with the Homecoming Dance in Tredway gym in the evening. Alumni arriving on the campus in the morning participated in the Alumni Chapel with Dr. Frank B. Bachelor giving the service. Special music was provided by the College Singers under the direction of Mr. '53. Accompaniment for Mr. RushHenry Overley.

Hinz calmly booted the extra point and Kazoo had conquered Hillsdale for the first time since 1941. Kalamazoo's Homecoming set the stage for the game between the Hornets and unbeaten Albion. The Britons had only a tie with Hillsdale marring their record going into the battle for the league lead. The Hornets thrilled an alumni day crowd of 6,300 by staging the most awesome display of offensive football ever seen in the MIAA. On Kazoo's first play from scrimmage, quarterback Philip Dillman, Oak Park, Ill., lateralled to Van Horn, who streaked 76 yards for the game's first touchdown. Before the first half ended the Hornets had scored four more times, completely outclassing a good Briton team. The Hornets ran and passed for 55 9 yards total offense, a new MI AA single-game record, while winning 35-21. The following weekend Kazoo lost to DePauw, 34-14, in the season's last non-league game. Returning home, the Hornets had little difficulty winning over Adrian, 35-6, while establishing a new conference single-game rushing mark of 496 yards. Kazoo lost a heart-breaker in the championship game at Alma. The Hornets scored first, on a 76-yard pass play from Dillman to end James Stefoff, Mishawaka, Ind. Alma tallied after a long march and at halftime the teams left the bruising game with the score tied 6-6. In the third quarter Alma drove to the Hornets' two-yard line, where Kazoo held for downs. But the Hornets fumbled on their first attempt to run out of danger and the Scots recovered two yards from the goal. Alma scored the backbreaker for a 13-6 lead. Midway in the fourth quarter, after three successive Hornet drives (Continued on page 20)

The publication of a new translation of Cervantes' Don Qttixote raises a curious question about that 350-year old Spanish novel. Although the new edition contains 988 large pages, for all practical purposes, over a period of more than three centuries, the reading public has compressed the substance of the book into about four pages. That is, what is contained in those four pages is literally all that large numbers of people know about the contents of Don Qttixote. Everything else has been forgotten ever since the days, more than three hundred years ago, when Cervantes' great novel was a best seller in Spain and indeed throughout Europe. What is the scene that the typical reader, one who is not a specialist, remembers from Don Qttixote, the incident with which the glib public speaker illustrates a point in his address? Test your own knowledge 1befot1e going on with this paragraph. You know that Don Quixote, whose brains had been addled by reading too many romances of chivalry, started out on a career of knight-errantry; that presently as he rode along on his steed he saw several windmills flailing against the sky; that he mistook their wings for the arms of giants and spurred his horse to do battle against them; that he was promptly knocked off his mount when a windmill wing came down on him. That episode has taken its place in the mind of the reading public as the only incident worth remem1

Page 14


bering in a novel of nearly a thousand pages. Yet in the new translation it takes up only four pages. There are many, many other scenes in the rambling story just as dramatic and just as significant as symbolism. But they have all been forgotten, and only the battle between a man and a windmill is remembered. The new translation of the great Spanish novel, which novel by the way is regarded as a kind of granddaddy of all novels, is by Samuel Putnam, and it is perhaps the most satisfactory English edition of the Cervantes classic that has ever been published. Moreover, the format is attractive- two 1ar ge volumes beautifully printed. The reading public's habit of compressing a large book into a single striking incident is not confined to Don Qttixote. More often than not a so-called "classic" in the field of fiction is known to the public by a single episode. Pick up a copy of Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer. This novel is only a third as long as Don Qttixote, but even at that it covers some 350 pages in most editions. What does the general reader remember of its contents? Simply the fact that Tom tricked his buddies into doing his job of whitewashing his aunt's fence. In probably nine cases out of ten that is literally all. Yet Tom Sawyer is a long and complicated story, with dozens of incidents scattered through its pages, some of them far more dramatic than the whitewashing scene. The general reader has elected to forget all the rest and has retained a single scene. Whitewashing fence and Tom Sawyer are vitually synonymous in his mind. The rest is a blank. Or take an equally well known novel. When David Copperfield is mentioned a surprisingly large number of people who read the book in childhood instantly recall the phrase, "Barkis is willin'." That, and almost that alone, remains in solution in the mind of the great reading public. There are nearly a thousand

pages in the book, and there are hundreds of incidents. But most of them have been forgotten. Finally, there is Robinson Crttsoe. The average reader remembers the scene when Crusoe sees foot: prints on the sand, and little else. Readers often have a curious habit of substituting a single incident for a whole novel.

"IMPRESSIONS" (Continued from page 2) sipated by what my eyes saw. The new day, the splendid equipment, th e fine group of young fo lks and th e easier day for all concerned. I saw the game between th e age-old ri vals. The boys on both teams gave a ll they bad to g ive. The result was satisfactor y. One of th e best plays, to my mind, was when things were going against the visitors and our cheer leaders crossed the field and joined in cheering th ose st rugg ling against odds. And then when Albion's cause was hopeless, their leaders returned the call. A final impression came to me from the beautiful chape l on th e highest hill. Its light shines out into our darkness, ever reminding us of the true Light. In this Light is our hope and only su re promise of a better tomorrow. I left the campus in th e eve ning with deepened conviction that our independent coll eges are o ne of freedom's strongest bulwarks. They stand between us and those forces which tend to standardize our lives and shackle our freedoms. Those of like faith will see that their work never lags. Edgar L. Killam '97
