Transcript of Milestone 1949

  • Old (jlory Old Glory! Long may she wave O'er the la7id of the free and the home of the brave, Men fought for it; men died for it; Who isn't thrilled by the might and sight of it? There are many flags in many lands, There are flags of every hue, But there is no flag, however grand. Like our own "Red, White and Blue."

    She's up there Old Glory hoiv bright the stars stream! And the stripes like red signals of liberty gleam! And ive dare for her living, or dream the last dream, 'Neath the flag of our country forever. So God bless our star-gemmed banner; Shake its folds out to the breeze. From church, from school, from house-top. O'er the city, over the seas.

    Sooner or later du r ing the term of s tudy on Hope ' s c ampus , all s tudents enter the w a r m s p h e r e of c o m r a d e s h i p c r e a t e d b y a m a n w h o s e s incere fr iendliness a n d genia l na tu re h a s long e n d e a r e d him to s tudents a n d faculty alike. For Jack Schouten is, a n d h a s b e e n at the s a m e time, father, brother , a n d fr iend to all.

    It w a s in the ear ly n ine teen twent ies that Jack first c a m e to b e recognized a s the "fa ther of Hope Col lege athlet ics ." He h a s held that distinction th rough the y e a r s until Hope Col lege athlet ics a n d Jack Schouten h a v e b e c o m e synonymous .

    W h e n athlet ics w a s in its in fancy a t Hope, Jack generous ly vo lun teered his services to assist in fulfilling the inc reas ing d e m a n d for a full time athlet ic p rogram. It w a s Jack a s a trainer, w h o in those first y e a r s of athlet ic competi t ion b e c a m e known a s the hea le r of all a i lments , phys ica l a n d otherwise. His respons ive na tu re , r e a d y smile, a n d hea r ty g ree t ing c o m b i n e d to m a k e him loved a n d revered .

    From trainer to c o a c h w a s a mere t ransferr ing of titles, for he h a d long ev inced g rea t interest in coaching . Our first official coach. Jack took over dut ies in football, baske tba l l , b a s e b a l l a n d track.

    It w a s Jack w h o ins t iga ted phys ica l t ra ining p r o g r a m s for girls a n d m a d e good sports-m a n s h i p a n d c lean living by-words . A firm bel iever in both. Jack h a s long a d v o c a t e d the theory that a good a th le te will m a k e a good citizen. A former a th le te himself. Jack knows the v a l u e of living right, not only in athletics, but in all things, a n d dai ly he strives to b e a living e x a m p l e of this.

    Today, with o n e of the largest enrol lments in Hope ' s history, a n d a grea t ly e x p a n d e d athlet ic p r o g r a m . Jack still finds time for mak ing the life of a s tudent on Hope ' s c a m p u s a fuller one. As Director of Physical Educat ion, trainer, a n d c o a c h of the b a s e b a l l s q u a d . Jack finds a m p l e oppor tuni ty to m a k e fr iends a n d inf luence the lives of all with whom he comes in contact .

    Emerson once wrote, "In order to h a v e a friend, you must first b e one." For over thirty years . Jack Schouten h a s lived a n d prac t iced this creed. It is with a feeling of

    at tection a n d pride, that this Milestone for the y e a r 1949 is d e d i c a t e d to him.

    DR. IRWIN I. LUBBERS

    This June will mark the fourth yea r that Dr. Lubbers h a s b e e n a t the he lm of Hope College. In some respects these h a v e b e e n the most t r eache rous y e a r s in the history of the college b e c a u s e of the inc reased enrollment a n d the n u m e r o u s p rob lems that h a v e ar i sen out of this si tuation. As usual , w h e n f aced with such problems. Dr. Lubbers utilizes his wisdom, ingenuity, a n d p r aye r to discover su i tab le solutions. Thus he is a b l e to l ead the col lege a n d still re ta in its s t a n d a r d s a n d ideals .

    Last fall Dr. Lubbers h a d the distinct honor of a t t end ing the i n a u g u r a l services of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower when he b e c a m e President of Co lumbia University. By hav ing Hope Col lege r ep resen ted a t events of this na ture , the country will g r a d u a l l y real ize the influence that a church sponsored college, such a s Hope, can h a v e on the world. Also, information re la ted at Hope from such events tends to m a k e the s tudents a n d faculty ol Hope Col lege more conscious of the p rob lems in the world a n d wha t the consequences of these will b e if a g r e e m e n t s a r e not r eached . Dr. Lubbers h a s m a d e n u m e r o u s trips a n d h a s a t t e n d e d m a n y important conferences in order to represent Hope Col lege a n d the ideals for which it s tands.

    Dr. Lubbers ' faithful service to Hope Col lege is recognized a n d deep ly a p p r e c i a t e d by the entire s tudent body, faculty, a n d alumni . His g u i d a n c e a n d wisdom h a v e encour-a g e d m a n y on the long a n d often d i scourag ing pa th to h igher learning. He h a s implan ted in m a n y the desire for h igher goals , va lues , a n d pu rposes in life. W e p r a y that G o d ma^ wa tch over our President in the future yea r s of gu id ing a n d s teer ing the course of Hope College.
