The world

The Church

moves south By Stewart D. (iovlg Professor Of Religion

Most of us are used to thinking about international affairs in terms of East-West confrontation or Third World politics. Today, however, many refer to marginal nations of our. world (in Latin America, Africa, and Asia) as be­ longing to the South. This con-

.

trasts them with the powerful (industrialized) nations of the North. "Liberation theology" de­ als with the situation of millions of people in this "South" - the voiceless and powerless - who are victims of the greed centered in Northern nations. I n recent yea rs a sta rtli ng change has occured in the religi­ ous make-up of North-South na­ tions. Church attenda n c e i n . Europe and the United States is dropping and a confused Christian community struggles in response to economic turmoil and the indif­ ference of people caught up in lotteries and video- games. This circumstance contrasts with Africa, the one area today where Christianity is making sub­ stantial gains. By the year 2000 sociologist David Barrett projects there will be 350 million Christians in Africa and that the "Dark Conti­ nent" will be the center of the Christian world! This essay seeks to provide a glimpse of present day Church life in one of the fifty or so African nations, Tanzania, and to guess what the shape of the center of Christianity may be like by the year 2000.

Dr. Stewart Govig spent a sabbatical year in 1983 as visiting professor at Makumira seminary in Tanzania. His work was sponsored by the Lutheran World FederatIon and the Amerc i an Lutheran Church.

The Local Church The choirs were already singing and the morning worship at Singisi congregation had a special ex­ uberance by the time we arrived. We soon learned it was a service of thanksgiving. A young boy had ventured out after dark to run through a coffee plantation. There was a sharp sting on his foot and by the time he reached home again he felt sick and his whole leg had swollen. The father realized what had happened: snake bite! Saddling the child on his back, the man ran two miles down the slopes of Mount Meru. Upon reaching the dispensary the child was incohe­ rent and his leg had swollen to gigantic proportions. While the patient lingered bet­ ween life and death, neighbors organized a successful hunt for the cobra which had attacked the boy. Slowly he recovered; medical attendants concluded that the thick skin on the boys' bare foot had blocked a fatal dose of venom. Yet those of the Singisi congre­ gation recognized in the event another dimension, namely, God's mercy. Furthermore, the recently recovered victim belonged not only to his parents; he also belong­ ed to their community which had now gathered to give thanks. Choirs, accompanied by drums, sang anthems and hymnsinging filled the packed building. The child was brought up in front, and long after the two-hour service people lingered out on the yard to visit together and welcome us. At other services worshippers come forward to receive the pas­ tor's blesSing after having ex­ perienced God's healing. Friends j o i ne d t h e c e l e b r a t i o n a n d brought offerings. Those with no money gave what they had: a bottle of milk, bale of fodder, home-made wood hoe handles, a bunch of bananas, or a chicken. Outside, following the final out­ of-doors benediction, these items were auctioned. We noted that after a baptism, the child's mother knelt for the pastor's prayer and laying on of hands. One man surrendered a charm used to ward off evil, whereupon the pastor

burned the object before the congregation. In the Evangelical Lutheran. Church of Tanzania each pastor: serves at least four congregations. At present growth rates in the,.

j

ELTC, the chronic shortage of! pastors will become more wide-' spread. Pastors are joined in minis­ t r y b y d e a c o n s , c a t e c h ists, evangelists, and parish workers, whose Bible School training pre-\ pares them for effective preach-: ing. teaching, and evangelism' Frequently lay persons notify the evangelist about a family on the edge of a congregation's boun­ !

l l

daries; this ensuing hero then goes out to them with the Good, News. Since the vast majority walk to Church, a two-mile radius often I defines a congregation s mission. Beyond, new churches organize and growth continues, often at around ten percent annually. In order to meet such need and opportunity, a Theological Educa­ tion by Extension program is or-. ganized. Active in other parts ofl the Third World as well, extension courses are taught by qualified Seminary instructors who travel hundreds of miles into the out­ lands on a yearly schedule. Typical­ ly, a dozen catechists and evangel­ ists gather on a weekend for lectures and discussions of their assigned lessons. Arready serving congregations, such students can share experiences and strive to "Africanize" theology. For one month all gather from dispersed teaching centers to the farm of a professor; here a dormitory, chapel. and ample garden are available. After three years TEE "peasant priests" are ordained for further ministry in their African villages Nation-Building A quarter of a century has passed since Africa began to re­ claim its independence from the Belgians, the Portugese, the Brit­ ish, and other nations of Europe. For Tanzania, where pioneer mis­ sionary David Livingstone died one hundred years ago in 1 873, the histories of the colonial period and the establishment of the republic in 1 96 2 have begun a process of nation-building and development.

3 The WOrld

By The Year 2000 The 'Dark Continen t Could Be The Center Of the Christian World The cry of "uhuru" (freedom) is now "ujamaa" (fa m i lyhood) a n d " kuhitegemea " (self-relia nce) A plan ned program of rura l development assists farmers to establish residences near co m­ mon water sources , and steps are . ta ken to improve land use. Presi­ dent Julius Nyerere, hi mself a Christian, has spo ken of this socia l cha nge as "turning the country upside down"; for him, in Ta nzania the Church is no longer a m issio­ nary Church, it is rather "a local Church, a national Church , " a nd he has invited Christia ns to play a p a rt i n creati ng African socia lis m . As he remarked in a 1970 address to the Maryknoll Sister's General Assembly in New York, "Y ou've got to be with us." Christians in Tanza nia today are thus in a unique situation because they live in a nation which is on a socialistic course and yet have I been invited by its autho rities not only to continue their traditional activities but also to contribute to the la nd's economic and socia l development What direction shall the form of such a C hristi a n contribution take? Simply stated , an answer involves the reduction of the effects of ancient enemies of the people: poverty, ignora nce, and d isease. In practical terms, this may mean orga nizing to drill a well or build a school house; it may be volunteering a s a rainfall observer to assist scientists working to improve agricultura l production; or it may be tra i n i ng vi llagers i n san itation fo r preventing disease. Si nce God i nvites d isciples to par­ ticipate i n shaping their lives, the Church will encourage people to develop themselves, for ultimate­ ly a p e o p l e c a n n ot be "de ­ veloped " The Lutheran Coordi nation Ser­ vice is an agency of churches and missions which cooperate in Tan­ z n i a . Recently an African bishop provided the agency with a job description for a M i ssionary posi­ tion, It shows how the Church initiates an effort to be "with " the people in creati ng Nyere' s vision of African socialism: Tera Station is located about 15 miles from the town of Arusha, The local population is basically en­ gaged in farming, Most of the neighbors around the residence of the missionary are not Christians, The indigenous people of the area are in most cases good neigh bors to the missionaries and their expec­ tations are that the missionary enter their midst as a good neigh­ bor, learn their language, become acquainted with them, and seek to relate to them in a helpful way They need an understanding and sympathetic pastor , ' , The house was built in 1974 for a Cerman pastor There;s some shortage of clean water in this area but the previous missionary has been able to arrange for an adequate supply

C hris tians, indudlng such in­ vited guests fro m a broad , support efforts by the government to

improve a situation where only half the school-age children a re in school and will receive no more tha n four yea rs of formal educa­ tio n , Wherever possible pri mary schools (nationalized in 1971) were esta blished amidst parish mi niS­ tries, On one occasion the writer noticed the church bui lding in which we rlad worshi pped had become a prima ry school building the next day, There are also tui­ tion-supported secondary leve l schools in development unde r the guida nce of the Church. Later on these, too, will be nationa lized. Social problems are many and pressing on es: population growth rates are a head of the establish­ ment of education and health facil ities, and young perso ns are leaving farms and villages for uncertai n futures in the larger c i t i e s , I n f l a t i o n h a s e roded 'ujamaa" ideal ism for i n a situation of want one tends for oneself and fa mily first Meat bea ns, fish , and eggs have become so expensive that few families ca n afford them; instead, many survive on a subsist­ ence level on cassava , m a i z e , bananas, and potatoes , Peo ple are tem pted to buy their way out to get what they need, Bribery a nd misma nagement underm ine the efficiency of institutions, and al­ coholism is, as in so many other countries, a th reat to family stabili­ ty, The speaking for social justice, a "prophetic" task of the Church, is now as urgent as the work of evangelism, Missionaries t o Us?

For many people, internation a l contacts with other Christians has been a mission situation in wh ich we, the wealthy, giving church sent am bassadors to the poor, receiving Church "out on the Mission field , " With the decline of the Church i n the West, the pros­ pects are that the Church of the South will eventual ly send mis­ sionaries i n our directio n , A Ta nzanian, Dr. Josiah Kibira , is t h e prese n t President of the Lutheran World Federation with headquarters in Geneva , Switzer­ land , Last yea r he spoke of the p o t e n tia l f o r fru i tf u l w o r k whenever missiona ries from Afri­ ca may move North in our direc­ tion. The Church today is actual ly a Church on a l l continents a n d mis­ sio ns exist on each of the m , In reacting to world-wide change and turmoil, however, Churches are discovering that there is some­ thing to learn from each a rea of God's family and that we now work in a co ntext of "converging mis­ sion," But as the expa nd i ng edge of the Church moves South one can antiCipate there will be much to lea rn and discuss . First IS the Christian 's attitude to other relig­ ions. During the gradUation cere­ monies at Makumira Theological College where Lutheran pastors are trai ned for ministry in Ta n­ Zania, Moza mbique, Kenya, and

Zaire, a local Muslim official also brought greetings and cong ratu­ latio ns to the seniors and their fa milies! Required courses in Isla m a nd African traditional religions are taught there, and a Research Institute encourages study not simply to target conversion ef­ forts but rather to understand better both African relig ion a n d the social context i n which these "ujamaa" neighbors are found . Mission is certainly not abandoned but such Inte ntions are different from attitudes characterizing p re­ vious mission activity of western C hu rch ambassadors in Africa . Where are the boundaries of toler­ a nce, co-existe nce, accomoda­ tion , and eva ngelism? There are no simple answers to the Question but Western Christia ns will likely app reciate the exa m pl e model of brothers a nd sisters in the South as they beg in to grapple with the theolog ical question of growing im porta nce Second, the practical affa irs, the modern, tech no logica l Western Christia n should learn from pre­ technological Christians in con ­ gregational activity; many in the South recite Bibl ical passages by memory, and the pri nted page so taken for granted among us­ is not required for thei r i nspira ­ tion. And we, having s o many technological adva ntages, are ac­ tua lly becoming less literate i n Bible knowled ge!' Furthermore, our experience involves e m b a rr a s s e d h a n d ­ wringing over persons leavi ng a cong regation "by the back door , " Africa n s will make membership discipline a much more public affair; theirs is a flourishing, self-

confident attitude not obvious in many quarters of our mem ber­ ship. Could this be a pattern for the future: a un ited front of the faithful, living i n peace with non­ Christian neighbors, yet neverthe­ less by a vital Christian "presence" a ccom p l i s h i n g m ission among them? Christian neigh bors in the South face simi lar confusion and issues as Christia ns on other continents do. A romantic view of their statistical growth by com parison to our ow n is not necessarily helpful Yet even though the notion of com munity (ujamaa) may ap pear overly ideal istic or roma ntic, it is a third area to observe as we move toward the Church of the year 2000. Joseph F. Safari, head of the Department of Sociology, U niver­ s ity of Dar es Sa laa m, reports that on the one hand Western social scientists list food, shelter, and clothing as the basic needs of man, An Africa n, on the other hand, lists food and socia/life as the basiC needs of man. To h i m or her, life is not worth living if it is not social . Shelter and clothing, while good, are not basic. For a Masai tribesman a lmost any kind of a house will do, but not so in his kinship system . Most of u s have our basic needs satisfied but isolation, lonel iness, a n d al ienation oppress so many Thus we sta nd to learn from future em issaries of Christ's Body in the South now better to inter­ pret st. Paul's contention (J Cor. 12:26) that if one mem ber of this Body suffers . , . all suffer togeth­ er; if one mem ber is honored, all rejoice together."

Gehrke Scholarship Ec'hoes Through Lutheran Church Literature By Jim Peterson

"Part of what ma kes the book so readable is the smooth transla­ tion of Ralph Gehrke , " The observation was made i n a r e c e n t review of Micah The Prophet, by Germa n theologian Hans Walter Wolff (Fortress, 198 1 ) , The work was tra nslated i nto E n ­ glish by D r , Gehrke, PLU professor of religion Even more recently, Dr, Gehrke contri buted a translation appear­ i ng in Confessing One Faith (Au­ gsburg, 1 982) The work is a joi nt comm enta ry on the Augsburg Co nfess ion by Luth era n a n d C atholic theologians, published originally in Frankfurt in 1 980, Gehrke translated the study of Article 21, dealing with the venera­ tion of the saints, The 63-year-old PLU professor has become increasingly involved i n t anslation efforts, which also i n cl ud e Claude Weste r m a n n 's 1967 study of The Psalms, Au­ gsburg published the English ver­ sion in 1980,

"I enjoy translating , " Gehrke observed, "and it comes easily, I ca n do it rapidly, But I can't say as much for my typing!" In addition to his own orig inal research and publishing, the long ­ time Old Testament schola r sees translation as a worthy use of post- reti rement time, not too many years away, "It'S work that needs to be done, " he sa id, "and there a ren't too many people willing or qua l­ ified to do it" He is g rateful for the increasing reputation as a translator he is developing among publishers of theol ogical books, Yet translation of the thoughts of others is only a fraction of his scholarly endeavors, During h is career spa nning nea rly four de­ cades, he has published reg ularly and widely, and his own thoughts on a wide spectrum of theolog ical subjects echo th roughout Luthe­ ran literature, He has both taug ht and written on lutheran educatio n, church music, a nd various personal and social issues in the context of the Scriptures, His greatest scholar-

ship, however, rests in his intimate understa nding of the Old Testa­ ment, refined over the years by extensive travel and research in Biblical lands, Greece, Germany and other parts of the world , G e h r ke h a s e n d e a v o re d th roughout his career to under­ sta nd the Word in terms of what it meant to the ancient writers and to interp ret in terms that have meaning in the modern world, Still, his search for truth and accuracy led to controversy a n d ultimately to the g reatest disap­ poi ntment of his life A quiet, conscientious scholar who eschews bureaucratic a n d pol itical motives, h e neverth eless fo u nd hi mself at the center of controversy for more than a de­ cade with in the Luthera n Church ­ Missouri Synod into wh ich he had been ordai ned in 1944 A l l egations of fa lse doctrine were initially voiced against him i n 1963 a n d fo rmal cha rges were filed in 1966 while he was teaching at Concordia Teach er's College in River Forest.

Hi story Of Tacoma waterfront Topic Of PLU Prof's New oak For more tha n a centu ry, Taco­ ma longshoremen have been an in dependent breed with a reputa­ tion for hard work and productivi ­ ty, Their reputation has played a major role in the growth of the Port of Tacoma. These conclusions, a nd many others, can be found in a new 180page book, The Working Water­ front: The Story of Tacoma's Ships and Men, co-authored by Pacific

Lutheran University history pro­ fessor Dr. A.D. Martinson with Dr. ' Ronald Magden of Tacoma Com­ munity College. The culmination of a four-year project, the work was researched and written under a $1 5,000 dona­ tion from Tacoma Local 23 of the I n te rnatio n a l Lo ng s h o rem e n ' s a n d Warehouseman's Union a n d a $16,000 g rant from the Washing­ to n C o m m i s s i o n f o r t h e Humanities, with in-kind services supplied by the Port of Tacoma. The book traces the develop­ ment of private dock and public port corporation shipping at Taco­ mao But it is primarily a tale of the men who worked on the water­ front and how they left their mark on the entire coastal as well as the local labor com mun ity. A Tacoma longshore reputation for high productivity a n d a spirit f o r l o n g s h o re - m a n a g e m e n t cooperation emerged i n 1 916. At

that time, a coastal longshore­ men's strike was being busted by strikeb reakers and "fink" union members, accord i ng to M a r­ tinso n , Rather tha n engage in violence, Tacoma longsh oremen decided to outperform their com petiti o n . Their sloga n, "We must be the best, " was passed down from g e n e ration to generation and helped build a reputation that g e nerated sign ificant shipping growth for Tacoma, he added. Taco m a ' s i ndependence also contributed to a refusa l to join the ILWU for more than 20 yea rs after it was formed because of the Sa n F ra n cisco-based u n i o n's, early controversial reputation . As a re­ sult. Tacoma worked through two I LWU strikes that shut down Seat­ tle, action which contributed to a competitive atmosphere between the two ports that stil l exists today. Ma rtinson's primary profession­ a l satisfaction with the book is derived from the likelihood that it will serve as a model for other 20th century western urban history works. "Very little in this area has been done," he said. "Our ap­ proach was brand-new . " The 1 957 PLU grad who is i n h is 17th year on the PLU faculty specializes in com mun ity histories and conservation history. He cur-

Dr Ralph Gehrke

in 1978 he was expelled from the Synod 's clergy after decl ining to appea l the Synod's most recent ruling At the ti me, he had been a member of the PLU faculty for three years. Dr. Gehrke accepted the deci­ sion with regret, but also with equanimity, bel ieving the charges to have been the consequence of the defin ition of literal interpreta­ tion of the Scri ptures, combi ned w ith chu rch politics "I never capitulated to the charges , " he sa id. Except among the most ultra­ conservative in h is former Synod, Dr. Geh rke's reputation remains without blemish . The author of com prehensive studies of I and " Samuel. Dr. Geh rke is presently working on a com mentary of Genesis 1-11 , It is a labor of love and fascination . Commenting on the study, he reflected, "With events that oc­ curred before Abraham and salva­ ti on history, we have to be careful not to weave Christian under­ sta ndings into the much earlier materials . Though we know Heb­ rew and ca n identify many of the places, we ca n never say we know precisely how the ancient Israelites interpreted these words. "To try to nail down the a ncient stories into a time-space relation­ ship, I believe is literalistic (instead of literall, meaning that some­ thing other than the native mea n ­ i n g is read into it "Trying to understand it in its intended sense is the o n ly way to understa nd literature," Dr. Gehrke believes . For exa m ple, the crea ­ tion story is in non-scientific lan­ guage, ta lking about the world we see and saying, "This is God 's creation . " H e added, "The story of Adam and Eve is not about where the Garden of Eden was, or when it happened, nor the story of one man and one wo men, "It is the story of every man and every woman now , "


5 corporate Giving Helps Assure Institutional Growth. stability "No business exists alone. A corporation and its community are so intertwined that as one grows and prospers, so does the other. Each has a stake in the well­ being of the other." The quotation is taken from the first paragraph of Safeco Insur­ ance Company's contributions policy, but might be considered representative of corporate giving policies nationwide, according to Molly Edman, PLU director of corpor a t e a n d f o u n d a t i 0 n funding. "Policies like these, and the resulting gifts, do indeed help determine whether or not an institution like PLU prospers," she said. For example, PLU's science building project was the recent beneficiary of a $1 5,000 gi-ant from Safeco, as well as a $1 2,000 grant from the Aluminum Com-

In a letter accompanying the Alcoa grant, Ralph Nichols, west­ ern region public affairs manager, wrote that he and Earl Gadbery, vice-president of the Alcoa Foun­ daton, are both "pleased to have Alcoa Foundation have a role in the new science building." A number of corporations, while not contributing directly to capital expenses, continue to provide annual support in excess of $2,000. A recent gift from Sears Roebuck Foundation brought that organization's total support to more than $55,000. Marie Clark, manager of Sears Tacoma store, made the presentation. Bruce Brown, the Foundation's spokesman, said, " PLU faculty and administrative officers continue to pursue a common goa� of excellence in education which we feel justifies our annual gift." Faculty grant proposals, as well, are beneficiaries of corporate and foundation generosity. As report­ ed in the December Scene, a high school social sciences curriculum project involving PLU and the P eninsula School D istrict was financed by a $7,800 grant from Northwest Area Foundation. So­ cial Sciences Division Chairman Dr. David Atkinson is the project di­ rector. Physics Professor Dr. Harry Adams recently received $4,000 from the Florence Kilworth Foun­ dation to develop computer ­ aided instruction in elementary physics. Aid Association for Lutherans, a fraternal benefit society, recently funded a PLU Church Relations videotape production project. The $9,900 grant, administered by church relations and university communications executive direc­ tors Harvey Neufeld and Dr. Martin Neeb, will provide PLU with a series of videotapes which can be cus­ tom-edited for a variety of univer­ sity constituencies.

computer Science progra m Acquires New Graphics Computer System . A $1 5,000 gift from Tektronics Inc., of Beaverton, Ore., has made possible the purchase of a $25,000 Tektronics Computing Graphics System desktop computer by the PLU Computer Science Program. The new computer, which will be used for both instruction and research, can provide a vast array of state-of- the-art graphics " It significantly adds to the qualifications and expertise being gained by our computer science students," Dr. Rick Spillman ex­ plained. Spillman is an assistant professor of computer science.

William Woods Scholarships Aid Business Students William P. Woods Business Scho­ larships will be awarded later this spring to one or more business students enrolled at Pacific Luthe­ ran University, accor d i n g t o Washington Natural Gas Company officials. The $ 1,000 scholarships are named in honor of the company's chairman emeritus. Woods was the president of Washington Natural Gas Company from 1960-

70 and became local chairman and chief executive officer in 1 970. The scholarships are designed to provide assistance to outstand­ ing students preparing for careers in b u s iness and to reaffirm Washington Natural's commit­ ment to private education. Woods Scholarships are also awarded to students studying business administration at Seattle University and University of Puget Sound. .

The unit's dynamic graphics capability can develop "anything from business charts to detailed design drawings, including anima­ tions and simul'ations," he added One of the initial uses of the new equipment will be in support of t e s tab i l i t y s t u d i e s r e s e a r c h headed b y Spillman with the aid of student assistants. "Designs are becoming so complex they need to be evaluated before invest­ ments are made in hardware, " Spillman explained. "Testability re­ search helps develop systems that are easy to test." Spillman's research, which could< help develop national standards, is being conducted under the au­ spices of a $38,000 grant from the National Science Foundation re­ ceived last June. The unit will also make possible the addition of a computer graph­ ics class as a part of the new and rapidly growing computer science major at PLU, which has enjoyed a 140 percent enrollment increase in the past two years. Applications of the new equip­ ment will rapidly expand as com­ puter science faculty and students become familiar with it. "We ha­ ven't begun to explore the capaci­ ty of this system," Spillman said.

PLU In A Hig h-Tech Age: Synth esizi ng The Best Of Tec h n o l ogy With The Best Of Li bera l Arts - The Science With The H u m a nity Anyone who reads the daily newspaper or who has elementa ry or high school students i n the home is keenly aware that we are irretrieva bly launched into the fast and dazzling world of com puters and technolo­ gy. So thorough has been the penetration into our national economy and i nto our personal lives that John Naisbitt in his recently published book, "Megatre n d s ," maintains we have already moved out of the I ndustria l Society and into the Information Society . Indeed, this movement was iden ­ tified as the post-industrial age as early as the late 1950's by Harvard sociology professor Daniel Bel l . When this renowned futurist partici pated in a semi nar on the ca m pus of Pacific Luthera n University in 1978, he ex­ plored the implications of the cha n g i ng American scene for business a n d for higher education . At that time, few in dustries and virtually no schools were prepared to gear their operations i nto the unknown field of com puter depen dency Since then , the application of media inno­ vations to educational purposes has expand­ ed at an exponential rate. Colleges and universities across the country are begi nning to respond in dramatic ways to the vast possibilities of i ntegrati ng hig h technology i nto the teach ing/learning environment. A recent count indicates that over 150 liberal arts institutions are already well along in adapting to this "revolution . " I believe this is not a tra nsient phenomenon, as some vigorously hold, but that it is a perma nent and pervasive fact of l ife. While much that is positive has resulted from this revolution,· special problems and challenges are also emerging. Specifica l ly, i ndustry is finding that as both workers and managers become more technically profi­ cient, they commonly become more narrow or specialized . They find themselves unable to deal with interpersonal issues so im por­ tant not only in day-to-day contacts, but in effective person nel ma nagement. With in the past month representatives from one of the nation 's leading manufacturers of technical equipment visited on our ca m pus. They were exploring ways that we might assist their compa ny in train ing managers for tomorrow who will be not only scientifically competent, but also humane, sensitive, and able to commun icate o n a personal level with their colleagues . At Pacific Lutheran U niversity our great strength lies in our com mitment to the goals of a liberal education. We must now build into that com mitment those elements of mod­ ern technology which ca n help us achieve our goals even more efficiently, effectively a nd com petitively. At the same time, we do not wish to adopt costly fads nor become economic or educational victims of poor

plan ni ng, lack of cooperative effort, and uncoord inated activity. Budgetary realities and a discrimi nating student market make it e s s e n t i a l that we p l a n a n d work to strengthen our efforts to continue to pro­ vide an outstanding liberal education in a Christian context. With this in mind, early this year a faculty committee which represented both science and technology and the liberal arts was esta blished to study ways in which we might set in motion a coord in ated effort to strengthen and enrich our educati o n a l achievements i n a technolog ical age. The overall objective is to i ntegrate i nstruction i n tech nology with instruction i n the liberal arts . Certainly, the future will include the i n ­ troduction o f com puter assisted in struction in courses throughout the un iversity The much-overused term "computer literacy" is accurate as a desired aim of contemporary education, but for this un iversity, it describes only part of the goal. Students would be ill­ prepared if they were not wel l trai ned to master a nd use to adva ntage the wide choices of instruments available to them. Video cassette recorders, our Public Broad ­ casting System resources, video discs, li brary com puter resources, word processors, mic­ rocom puters, m i n icom puters - all are al­ ready on hand on the cam pus. Their use must now be ta pped to make them essential elements of a pla nned curricular structure throughout all academic areas. Many institutions will work vigorously to help students become com puter literate . One institution will require by this fall that . each Freshman own or buy a personal com puter . Pacific Luthera n Universi ty, be­ cause of its heritage in liberal arts and its current strength in science and technology must do morethan sim ply provide com puter literacy for its stUdents . The greater part of the challenge is to find a curricular pathway which al lows a synthesis of the best in li beral arts with the best in technology. Such a synthesis would al low the liberal arts to inform the technological train ing so that students will understa nd not only the sci ­ en ce, but also the humanity of the new age. The faculty com mi ttee now at work will have formulated a plan to respond to this greater challenge by this co ming summer. The creation of such an integrated cur­ riculum is uniquely possible in a school like Pacific Lutheran U n iversity, where an envi­ ro nment of collegiality has a long tradition . The groundwork for such i nterdiSCiplinary effort to produce a new un dersta nding of the relatedness of various disciplines is firm ly established in our existing successful Inte­ grated Studies Program . Naisbitt stresses i n his book that whenever new technology is introduced into society, there must be a counterbalancing human response or the technology is rejected. He refers to it as high touch. "The more high tech," he maintains, "the more high touch. " Pacific Lutheran University i s i ndeed re­ sponding in a creative way to that concept as we become a contributing part of the Information Society .

congregational Reps Fi nd Partnershi p Duties 'Exciting' By John W. Adlx ASSOCiate Director Of Church Relations

The Church-Un iversity partnership is excit­ i ngl So say some of the Congregational Representatives who a re serving as living l i n ks between school and congregation others say, "I feel that what I am dorng i s i m porta nt " Others indicate that they hope that they will be able to do more for the partnership in the near future. Some a re looking for new ideas, These are the re­ sponses g leaned recently from the 300 Congregationa l Representatives serving con ­ g regation a nd University, We have heard that the Lutheran church was born in the u niversity, It was at Witten­ berg University that Martin Luther made the g reat discovery which was the tu rning point in his spiritual life, The roots of the church a re in the university. In the same way PLU has its roots i n the church. PLU was g iven birth by church people. Good education and quality scholar­ sh ip strengthen the church . The strength of i ndividual churches is the fou ndation for the u niversity. Each entity, fulfilling its mission, i ndividually, and each entity working togeth­ er provide strength and leadership to the community. It is exciting to assist in this l iving and vibra nt partnership. Though some of us are designated to cultivate th is association, a l l w h o confess Christ and w h o profess "quality education in a Christian context" participate in the mission. Wherever we can build bridges, develop friends, create alliances, and work as col­ leagues, we have strengthened life in com­ munity and perhaps come a little closer to fulfilling the C reator's order for life.

PLU Regents Set Tuition, Fees For 1 983 84 Academic Year ..

Encouraged by the growi n g number and amou nts of an nual gifts from external sou rces, the Pacific Lutheran U niversity Board of Regents has approved a 7,3 p e rcent tuition increase for th e 1 983-84 academic year, the smal­ lest increase in four years The new tuition figures were an nounced by PLU President Wil­ liam 0 , Rieke, He explai ned that tuition for next year will be $1 77 per credit hour, compared to $1 65 for the cu rrent fisca'l yea r, A 32hour annual credit hour load will be $5,664, compared to $5,280 th is year, At the same time, the Regents a pproved a n i ncrease in room and board charges from $2,370 to $2,631 , , In a strong move to help offset the increased costs to students, :the Regents a pproved a 1 2 pe r­ , cent i ncrease·i n university-funded financial aid, a move which will improve Pacific Luthera n's ability to award competitive aid packages to students, according to PLU Registrar Charles Nelson . For several years PLU has com­ pared its ranking in te rms of costs with 1 4 si m il a r colleges and un­ iversities in the Northwest and nationwide, Rieke indicated, This years modest increase shows a favorable decline in Pacific Luthe-

ra n 's position from sixth to seventh, he said, Rieke noted that the major roadblocks to even smaller i n ­ creases were sig nificantly rising costs of utilities and continued installation of life safety devices i n dormitories , Impact of utilities increases is being m i n i m ized by conti nuing active energy conser­ vatin measures across campus, The new budget will provide for a cost of living salary increase for personnel and modest growth I n su pport services, Rieke said , I n other busi ness, the PLU presi­ dent a nnou nced that May 31 is the estimated date of bid openi ng for the $6,9 million PLU science com­ plex, The date of bid advertise­ ment has not been released The 75,000 square foot two­ story brick building will house laboratory facilities, classrooms a nd office space for the combined PLU science faculty , The structure has been designed by the Port­ land, are" a rc hitectural firm of B roome, O r ingdu l p h , O 'Toole, Rudolf and Associates. The science complex is one of -the projects being funded by the PLU Shar1ng in Strength capital campaig n, The campaign has re­ ceived a total of $9.6 million in cash and pledges to date, Rieke reported. ,

Penderecki Premiere, ACDA Concert Highlight Spring Choir Concert Tour The Pacific Lutheran University Choir of the West's spring concert tou r is marked by two develop­ ments which add a significant new di mension to the Choir's reputa­ tion as one of the country's finest choral organizations. Highlighting the Choir's tou r progra m will b e the premiere of a­ new major work by acclaimed Polish composer Krzysztof Pen­ derecki. The work, "Agnus Dei . " has been dedicated by Pend erecki to the memory of Polish Cardinal Stefan Syszynski. It is also expect­ ed to be a major part of a new " Requiem," which the composer has been commissioned to write for the National Symphony i n Washington. D.C. Acco r d i n g to D r . M a u ri c e Skones. director of the Choir of the West. it was this kind of c o m posing prog ression which characterized another major Pen­ derecki work. "Stabat Mater" (1 963). which was expanded into the monumental "St. Luke Pas­ sion." The tou r also includes the Choir's first performance at a national convention of the Ameri­ can Choral Directors' Association . That performance will be held Saturday. March 1 2 , in the Nash­ v i l le (Ten n . l Performing Arts Center. Selection of Skones and the IChoir of the West for the Nashville concert and the Penderecki pre­ miere are based strictly on merit. Skones is recognized as one of the foremost choral directors in the world by composers like Pen­ derecki. Ingvar Lidholm of Sweden and Hanz Werner Zimmerman of Germany. all of whom have heard the Choir in concert. Other choral leaders, like Robert Shaw of the

Choir Festival in Februa ry. H is U niversity C horale was invited to be the g u est choir at the festival, which also featured 2 1 high school choirs . T o accommodate the i nvita­ tions, the Chorale's spring concert tou r was scheduled to correspond with the festival. dates . In addition to the festival performance, the Chorale sang concerts in six Luthe­ ran churches on Oah u . "The Su nday morning worship service concert at Calvary Luthe­ ran was particularly memora b le, " Harmic recounted . Calvary Luthe­ ran is a new structure built some 1 00 feet from the edge of the surf. The cong reg ation sits in the rou nd and the sea and surf domi­ nate the view from any seat in the building. "The view of an occasional surf­ er, fisherma n or boat is not a distraction to worship. but a re­ minder that this is a part of life as worship is a real life experience." Harmic added. And the congregation's tradi­ tion of hugging at the door in­ stead of shaking hands " m a d e u s al l feel a part of their ohanna. or extended family." he said. Harmic arrived four days ahead of the Chorale to begin rehearsals with individual festival choirs. and was relieved to hear the festival chairman, Dale Noble. say that the mUSic Harmic had chosen had been enthusiastically received by participating directors and stu­ dents. "That was crucial to the success of the festival." Harmic explained . B remerton. Wash., freshman Barbara Rowlee, the pianist for the University Chorale, assisted with the rehearsals and accompanied the mass chOir at the final concert. "We viSited choral groups i n seven different schools, a pproxi ­ mately 5 0 percent of the festival partiCipants." Harmic continued .

Choir TO Be Featured On German Television A German television documen­ tary team has selected the Pacific Lutheran University choir of the West as a featured subject for a program to be distributed to networks in both West and East Germany. According to a spokesperson for the TV producers. the Choir was selected from among ensem­ bles performing this spring at the national convention of the Ameri­ can Choral Directors' Association . Analysis of performance ta pes and discussions with experts in the world of c h o ral music were factors in the selection. he i nd i ca ted .

"We saw many different choral and eth nic traditions. both in public a nd private schools. One was nearly all Japa nese. another qu ite evenly mixed between white and Hawaiian . "One of our favorite schools was almost totally Hawaiian from a pineapple farming area . The con­ ductor is a native who has been teaching in the community of Wahiawa for 21 years and has developed a fine choral tradition . " He added. " Each choir has its own pe rsona l ity - some very sensitive and responsive. usually a direct reflection on the conduc­ tor. Some instructors are gifted in helping students develop both artistic sensitivity and a sense of personal worth. Young people are the same everywhere. Given the' right opportunities. they respond to music with a sense of personal :accomplishment. ; "One of a director's goals is to . help students have a musical (aesthetic) experience coupled with the personal satisfaction of con­ . quering the technical demands of the music and their own vocal production as well as the aware­ ness of working together in a grouP." Harmic noted. "A musical ensemble is one of the few kinds of organizations in which large groups of people attem pt complete synchroniza­ tion of their thoughts and actions. When they are successful. it is a truly awesome experience for all involved," he added. "The evening performance was one of the most colorful events I have ever witnessed." Harmic re­ called. " Eight of the high schools sang individually. Nowhere have I seen such variety of beautifully colored costumes and flowers. The music and the style of singing varied with the dominant ethnic. backg round - Japanese. Anglo or Po ly neSia n . "Music became the common denominator. and through the relationship between conductor and students this large, diverse group was able to share an experi­ ence that was si m u lta neously physical, emotional, spiritual and aesthetic .

I n the nine yea rs I 've worked the Alumni Association I've a lways known that our alumni really cared about their a l ma ma­ ter, but I 've never understood why they weren' t willing to fina ncially s u pp o rt so meth i ng that meant so much to hem . I no w h ve th e answer. We never rea lly showed th m our need for t hei r support nor d i d we ask them in th e p roper with

each a l u m n us e x pl a i n i ng the needs of the university, and fol ­ lowing i t u p with a personal phone cal l. Stud ents a re trained and hired at student wages to make the contact The response has been over­ whelming . With eight evenings of

cal l i n g each month, up to twelve students an evening are averag ing over $48,000 a month in gifts and pledges. N i neteen percent of those con­ tacted are making a gift co m m it­ ment on the phone. Another 1 5 percent say they will make a gift but have not specified an amount As a resu lt of ou r phone cam­ paign more than $288,000 has been generated . Most of it comes from a l u m n i but several gifts are from parents and friends of the University. The majority of the comm itment is to our capital ca m paign for new science a nd arts build ings, but some is deSig nated for the much-needed on-going Annual Fu n d . And over 60 percent of those ma king a gift have never done so before. One of the other benefits of the program is the student's partici­ patio n . Besides the i ncome earned (which is mostly turned right back in tuition and room and board) a nd the knowledge gained about their u niversity and its constituen­ cy, the students a re amazed at the friendli ness of those with whom they speak .

Lute Jersta d Plans Retu rn To Mount Everest After 20 Years Twenty years ago Lute Jerstad became Pacific Lutheran Un iversi­ ty's most famous alumnus when he became one of the first Ameri­ cans to scale Mount Everest. Since then he has conq uered ot h e r chal l e n g e s a n d o t h e r heig hts, a n d other U . S . climbers, i ncluding another PLU a l u m n us, Dr. Ch ris Chandler, have con ­ Q uered Everest. Still, Everest remains a remark­ able achievement i n both Jers­ tad's personal and PLU alu m n i annals. Th is coming November, Jerstad plans to return to the Everest base camp at the 1 8,000 level of the 29,028-foot mountain. He is tak­ ing along his daughter, Janna, who was born when he was on the

earlier expedition. The trip will be a time of reflec­ tion a nd reunion with some of 1 963's Sherpas and fellow climber Dick Pownall of Colorado. Everest changed his life, Jerstad believes. Following the historic climb, he finished his Ph . D . in Himalayan culture, and then settl­ ed down as a college professor at the Un iversity of Oregon and Lewis a nd Clark College. But the out­ doors and adventure contin ued to beckon . After teaching for three years, he took over a small river-rafting company and began orga nizing trips. That blossomed into Asian tours, because of his contin uing interest in those countries and cultures.

PL U 's Best Woman Skier Ever

Jil l Mu rray Do minates Northwest collegiate Al pine Rac ing Scene By Jim Klttllsby Skhng has n ever been an u p h i l l stru gg le fo r J i l l M u rray, a yo u n g woman i n a h u rry On the other hand, it hasn't been a l l dow n h i l l f o r her either . In her two- yea r PLU stint, M u r­ ray has bee n a d o m i n ant alpine racing fig u re i n the Northwest Col l egiate Ski Conference . The 24year-old business a d m i n istration major, NCSC g i a nt s l a l o m r u n ­ ne ru p i n 1 983, q u a l ified for the Nation a l Collegi ate Ski Associati o n championships. Disra e l i , who wou ld have felt i l l a t ease in a spo rts ch it-chat set­ ti n g , once said that there a re l ies, exp letive-deleted l ies, and statist­ ics. However, to put M u rray 's snow show in to p e rspective, it is necessa ry to exa m i n e the schoo l ' s slat reco rd . From 1 97 1 through 1 981 , i n over 50 races, Lute skiers col lec­ tively brought home seven i n d i ­ vidual f i rst - p l ace a l pi ne troph ies D u ri n g one fou r-year stretch , PLU was shut out. D u r i n g M u rray's Cascade rei g n , she won seven g i a n t s l a l o m a nd fou r slalom eve nts. "In my years as a com petitor and coach at Michigan Tech a n d i n my short stint a t P L U , I have neve r seen a nyone so d o m i nate a l pi ne raci n g , " said first-year coach Rick Kapala " It's a l m ost i m possible i n a l p i n e ski i n g (slalom a n d g i a n t s l a l o m ) to w i n reg u la rly, beca use there isn't much m a rg i n for error. Y et, she won fo u r stra i g ht g i a nt slalom races as a junior This year , Jill had a five-win streak, m ix i ng s l a l o m and

g i a nt slalo m , o r 'GS', as peo ple i n the ski i ng frate rn ity ca l l it. " The ' ma rg i n fo r error' needs some cla rificati o n . Slalom s k i i n g is a zig -zag run of 30-45 seco n ds d u ration thro u g h gates . The giant sla l o m , as the name m i g ht i m p ly , is longer, 50-60 seconds fo r the ski l led sk ier. Slalo m racing is a series of high -speed tu rns a n d , if set up as a dou bl e - po l e course, the moves become even m o re tech n i c a l . G i a nt slalom is always d o u b le- pole, i . e . , the racer goes between gates. I ron i ca l ly, M u rray fi n i s hed sec­ ond in g i a nt slalo m , her specia lty, in the open ing race of the season at White Pass. The i n cid ent bor­ dered on comedy relief . With a two-seco nd lead going i nto the seco nd run (there a re two runs i n each event), the P L U se nior went through two of the 50 gates backwards. " It was ra i n i n g a n d , with my goggles on, I co uld n ' t see , " said Jill. I got i n the wro n g l a n e , passed t h e two g ates on the wrong si de, then had to j u m p back over a mog ul (snow b u m p or h i l l ) and re- a p p roach the p o l e s i n the proper pattern " The snafu cost her two to th ree seconds. She sti l l f i nished second , o n e tick behind the leader. The 1 977 gradu ate of Seattl e's Qu een Anne High School atte nded the U n i versity of Washington fa l l a n d spring f o r th ree yea rs, but did n't ski for the H uskies. She did p l ay th ree s e a s on s of va rs ity soccer. ' ' I ' d been skiing since age fou r a n d was tota lly wrap ped up i n 'dow n h i l l ' racing That's m o re o n "

" "The Pacific Northwest Ski As­ sociation gave me a n o utlet for my d a re - devil d rive a n d I co m peted for eight years on Washingto n , Oregon, a n d Idaho slopes That :: i rcuit has no col leg iate affi liati o n , b ut is m a d e u p of highly skill ed racers. " When J i l l q uit rac i ng in 1 980 to become reg i o n a l marketing d i rec­ tor for the US Ski Associat i o n , late r a l p i ne coord i n ato r f o r the area, she ra n ked as the n u m be r one wo m e n ' s dow n h i l l skier, of a l l a g e g roups, i n the Northwest. During her travels on the PNSA circuit, she met Greg Ti m m , who later recr u ited her for PLU .

" H e r success this yea r, w i n n i ng seven races i n te n reg u l a r season outi ngs, has been aga i nst the best in the a re a , l a rge school and sma l l , " said Ka pala PLU com petes in the n o rthern division of the NCSC, a n eleven school a l l i a n ce w h i c h i n c l u d e s U n i v e r s i ty of Was hi ngton Twe nty-six schools were rep resented at the th ree­ division conference meet. "J ill's g reatest asset is consiste ncy. She's n ot easily affected by press u re. She takes everything i n . stride a n d doesn't worry a bout such thi n g s as slope cond itions or cou rse layout " On the basis of her two-yea r raci ng performa nce, J i l l M u rray ra n ks as the best woman skier i n P L U history. A n d that's no s n ow job. Or is it?

Architect's model of new PLU physical fitness center

Tacoma Couple Donates $450,000 Physical Fitness Center To PLU A new $450,000 physical fitness center has been donated to Pacific Lutheran U niversity by Scott a nd Sis Names of Tacoma, PLU Presi­ dent William O . Rieke a n nounced J u ne 3 at the annual PLU Corpora­ tion meeting . The new building will be constructed on lower cam ­ pus, north a n d adiacent to Memo­ rial Gymnasium . D r . David Olson, PLU athletic d i rector, indicated that the build­ ing will house the latest in weight training and other conditioning equipment. There will also be a n indoor jogging track a nd space for physical education classes, i n ­ tra m u ra  sports and equipment, laundry, rest rooms, a nd office space. The 5,500-square foot facility

will be availa ble for commun ity use through auspices of the PLU Athletic Club, Olson added . "This most generous g ift from the Names family is without doubt one of the most encouraging a nd sti m u lating developments that has happened to ou r prog ram," Olson said. "It enables oppor­ tunities for a wide variety of people and programs. "The fitness activities m a d e possible by this facility form the basis for a l l our physical education, a th letic a n d rec reation prog­ rams," he added . "We a re deeply g rateful a n d very ecstatic!" Building plans a re presently be­ ing developed in consu ltation with Names a nd PLU officials by Nick Ockfen-Western Constructors a nd

architect Russ Ga rrison. Construc­ tion is anticipated to begin in J u ly and completion is expected by November. The Names' gift has added a n additional dimension to university ca pital expansion and construc­ tion plans, which also include a new science facility, music build­ i ng a n d Sca n d i n avian Cultural Center, according to Luther Be­ kemeier, vice president for de­ velopment at PLU . Earlier con"Lruction under au­ spices of the $16.5 million PLU "Sharing in Strength" capital cam ­ paign, now i n its fourth year, has included a new math office build­ ' ing and general services/mainte­ na nce facilities, in addition to

PLU Programs Benefit From Nearly $900,000 In New Grants A $450,000 c h a l l e n ge g ra n t from Lutheran Brotherhood was one of several major g ra nts re­ ceived by Pacific Lutheran Univer­ sity this spring, according to Luth­ er Bekemeier, vice-president for development. The g rant is a th ree-year, one­ for-two challenge gift designated as an endowment fund for Luthe­ ran student scholarships, Universi­ ty matching funds can multiply the gift. "This g ift can be a rea l inspira ­ tion to new donors interested i n o u r scholarship prog ram , " Be­ kemeier said. "It is one of several ways that donors can m ultiply their g ifts throug h various match­ ing opportun ities." The g rant also applies toward the endowment portion of the "Sharing in Strength" fund ca m­ paig n , which now has reached $10.5 million toward a goal of $1 6.5 million . Other recent g rants i nclude: *$1 65,000 to East Campus from the Pierce County Office for Com­ munity Development. The funds will permit modernization of the former elementary school build­ ing to provide facilities for the

proposed Family and Child Ser­ vices Center. *$90,572 from the Fund for Improvement of Post Secondary Education a n d $70,000 from the U s. Department of Education to d evelop i ntern ational business curricula for the Consortiu m for International Business Education. Dr. Gundar King, dea n of the PLU School of Busi ness Admin istration, chairs the seven-school consor­ tiu m . PLU, which h a s become a n a ­ tional leader i n this field, will host a national conference on the topic for the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business, the national accreditin g agency for schools of business, J u ne 1 2 - 1 5 . The PLU School of Education 's Project Re-Design (a special edu­ cation cu rriculum project) has re­ ceived second year funding of $39,000 from the Department of Education and an $1 1 ,524 g rant from the same sou rce to conduct a dea n 's trai ning conference. *A two-yea r $40,000 g rant to t h e " S h a r i n g i n S t re n g t h " c a p ital/endowment c a m p a i g n f r o m P a cific N o r t h w e st B e l l brought to $50,000 the total con -

tribution to t h e campaign from the company. "This gift underscores further the active cooperation evident between the U niversity and the telephone company," noted PLU President William a. Rieke. "Only last month we enjoyed a two-day visit from Dick Kelly, division staff manager of Pacific Northwest Bell, who partici pated in several classes as Executive-in-Residence . " * Biology p rofessor M i c h e l e C rayto n i s the recipient of a $27,840 g ra nt to be used to acquire a high performance liquid chromatog raph for botanical re­ search . *The PLU engineeri ng depart­ ment has received five general purpose electrica l e n g i neeri n g laboratory instru ments from the Hewlett- Packard Compa ny valued at $5,300. According to the chairman of t h e d e p a rt m e nt, D r . D o n a l d Haueisen, this equipment w i l l sup­ port the recently approved electr­ ical engineering m i nor at PLU . An electrical engineering major is a nticipated when the new Rieke Science Center is completed, he i ndicated .

va rious remodeling and renova ­ tion projects . "The truly beautiful thing a bout the N ames' gift is the benefit to such a wide cross section of people on campus a nd in the community, " Olson added , "It will benefit the casual pa r­ ticipa nt, student athletes, physical fitness classes and the adult com ­ m unity," he continued . "With physical fitness in such vogue, this is a remarkably timely a nd signific­ a nt development for us." Other PLU athletic facilities avail­ able for community use include the swim ming pool, ten nis courts, 400-meter track, and joggerun­ den fitness trail, as well as Athletic Club access to Olson Auditorium facilities .

PLU Senior Best President At Chemistry Confab Terri Harmon of Bremerton, a PLU senior majoring in chemistry, received honors for "best presen ­ tation" a t the a n n u a l u nd e r ­ g ra d u ate resea rch symposium sponsored i n April by the Portla n d a n d Puget Sound sections of the American Chemica l Society. H a rm o n , P h i l i p A l m o n te of Tacoma, and Philip H u nter of Chelan Fal ls, Wash . , were the PLU students among the 1 2 selected presenters. H unter and Harmon did most of their research last summer when both held research fellowships provided by the Robert C . Olsen fu nd . Al monte's res e a rch wa s done during the 1 983 I nterim. The general topic of all three projects was lignon, the natu ral ly occu rring polymer that binds cel­ lu lose in wood . Harmon's com ­ pound synthesis adds to the data needed in the search for a more environmentally acceptable alter­ native to present methods of lignon removal from wood during paper production.

Croundbreaking William O. Rieke Science center Will Soon Rise On Lower Campus The William O. Rieke Science Center, a $6.9 million structure, will soon rise on the PLU campus fol l o w i n g a M a y 2 2 g roundbreaking. The g roundbreaking ceremony was held just prior to PLU's 1 983 commencement exercises . T h e g raduation p rocessional, includ­ i ng nearly 600 degree candidates, faculty a nd special guests, paused at the groundbreaking site for the ceremony before proceeding to Olson Auditoriu m for the gradu a ­ tion program . Closed circuit television beamed the g roundbreaking event onto a giant wall screen in the a uditorium for the more tha n 3 , 000 family members a nd friends of t h e g raduates. The new science center has been na med for PLU's cu rrent president. The action, taken by the PLU Board of Regents in late April, honors Rieke for his leadership of the u niversity since 1 975, and his role in guiding the current capital cam paign which has made the new facility possible, according to board chairman Rev. David Wold . The resolution nami ng the Rieke Science Center noted that "PLU has taken a nother forward step i n its overall academic excellence a s symbolized by the decision to build a new science center" a n d that D r . Rieke a n d his wife, Joa n ne, have provided impetus for that g rowth . It also recog n ized Rieke's influ­ ence i n all areas of u niversity education endeavor - academic, social, physical a n d spiritual. In addition, it was noted that Rieke's professional backgrou nd and academic contributions were derived from the d isciplines of science a nd medicine Prior to his appointment as PLU 's 1 1 th presi ­ dent eight years a g o , R ieke spent 20 years as a professor a nd ad­ m i n i strator at severa l medical schools, i ncluding the U niversity of Wash 'ngton, where he earned his M . D. degree with honors in 1 958. He is also a 1 95 3 summa cum laude g raduate of PLU a nd was na med a PLU Disting uished Al u m ­ nus in 1 969 Previously, a William a Rieke Auditorium was na med i n his honor at the U niversity of Ka nsas Med ical Center, where he served as vice-cha ncellor and executive vice-chancellor from 1 971 -75. PLU's new science center is one of two major new buildings to be

funded by the u niversity's "Sha r­ ing i n Strength" capital a nd en­ dowment fund campaig n . A new music center is also planned. Now in its fourth year, the ca mpaign has also financed other campus renovations and remodeling, is strengthening the u niversity's en­ dowment and will eventually in­ clude a Sca n d i n a v i a n Cultural Center. Relyi ng entirely on private con ­ tributions, Pacific Luthera n has reached out to its a l u m n i , the church, corporati o n s , fou n d a ­ tions, businesses and private citi­ zens to assist with the $165 million effort. Early i n the cam paig n an i nternal d rive on campus generated more tha n $1/3 million with 75 percent of PLU personnel participating "It was a powerful statement to other potential donors that the campus is totally com mitted to the success of the bold 1 980's venture," ob­ served the campaign chairma n , Luther Bekemeier, PLU's vice-pre­ sident for development The Rieke Science Center will be a fascinating place for both stu ­ dents a n d visitors . The first floor will feature a large lounge a n d resou rce center. Among a variety of displays will be the u nique educational dioramas created by PLU biology professor Dr. Jens Knudse n . They were a popular attraction at Tacoma's Poi nt De­ fiance Aquarium for many years The north wing of the building will house a large museu m and the Irene C reso Herba riu m . C reso, a retired PLU biology professor, has made the herbarium a labor of love for many years. It features sam ples of many of the flora species fou nd in the Puget Sound region . A 200-seat auditoriu m at the south end will be equi pped with water, gas and a variety of elec­ tronic display features to enhance instructional capabilities . It will also add to PLU 's capability to offer public lectu res and symposiums on scientific topics Popular computer science and engi neering prog ra ms will have room to g row and there will be facilities to do some i ndustrial chemistry Although the PLU pre-medical and pre-dental prog rams have enjoyed enviable reputations for many years, capabilities will be enhanced further by better surg ­ ical resea rch facilities.

PLU President Dr. William Rieke turns the first spade of earth during a May 22 groundbreaking ceremony for the new Rieke Science Center at PLU. Looking on are ALC North Pacific District Bishop Rev. Clifford Lunde and PLU Board of Regents Chairman Rev. David Wold. All three are PLU alumni.

Four PLU professors were honored for 25 years of service to PLU during May Commencement exercises. They are from left, Dr. John Schiller, sociology: Dr. Kenneth Christopherson, religion; Dr. HarryAdams, physics; and Gene Lundgaard, physical education.

" These prayerful thoughts were among the many kind words ex­ pressed both last spring and this spring in a nticipation of the retire­ ment of Dr. Doris Stucke. Dr. Stuckp. has served PLU for 1 6 years, 1 5 of them as d i rector of the PLU School of N u rsing The veteran PLU teacher a nd administrator spent her final year on sa bbatical. involved in two major research projects which are providing valuable data to the present School of N u rsing Ad­ ministration. One deals with ad­ missions criteria and sta ndards, the other evaluates cu rricul u m b a s e d o n c h a r a c t e r i stics of g raduates Du ring her ten u re as director, the School g rew sign ifica ntly i n both quality a n d quantity.

Raw nu mbers, however, have been among the least of Dr. Stucks's concerns, since during most of her administration there have been many more appl ica ­ tions than could be accepted Rather, she looks back with JOY and pride at the accomplishment of

Dr. Doris Stucke

the nursing students both before and following their graduation . "It's a difficu lt qual ity to mea ­ sure, but I a m most proud of the kind of nu rses they are, the kind of care they deliver, " Stucke sai d . "They perform with skill, fi nes­ se, confidence a nd caring, " she added . The reasons for their skills and attitudes a re manifold, she ob­ served . One is the kind of student attracted by the u niversity gener­ ally and the School of N u rsing particula rly "The contribution of liberal arts to g rowth and develop ment of stude nts is a lso sig n ifica nt, " Stucke conti nued . "Again, you can 't measu re it, but it's there . " In addition, s h e believes that the new n u rsing cu rricu lum, phased in the mid- 70's, has added to the q u a I ity of both prog ram and g rad uate. She poi nted to " Level l" of the curricul u m as a n effective program to help students better u n d e rsta nd themselves. " Level V I , " the preceptorship, adds polish and confidence in ability. "At the end of level six, " Stucke

said, "they are ready for the responsibilities thrust on them. They are ready to let go of our hands ! " Also during her administration, the School in itiated two add itional progra ms that have been of sig­ n ifica nt benefit to n u rses i n thE� community: a specia l i zed bac ­ caaureate prog ra m for retu rn ing RNs, and a n active program of conti nuing education for n urses i n t h e commu nity Reflecting on her ca reer at PLU, Dr. Stucke singled out her mother for special g ratitude The d i l igence of Mrs. Esther Stucke, 87, in mainta i ning the home made it possible for her daug hter to de­ vote all of her energ ies to her career and PLU . Dr. Stucke added, "I would a lso l i ke everyone to know how sup­ portive the p resident a nd ad­ ministration have been to the School of N u rs i ng and to me personally I am very proud of my association with PLU and the many people who have made it an institution i n which we can take pride "

Graduate completed Degree Requirement Commuting weekly From California By Sandra Stevens

When Jan Joh nson, a 2 3-year­ old business student at PLU, went home each weekend this spring she real ly went home - all the way to California. No, she didn't miss her mom's :ooking. She traveled to California each week because she has a job in Los Altos' How can a college student af­ Ford to commute from Washing­ ton to California and back again every week and still hold a job and take care of school? It all began last summer when .J an interviewed for a job as a receptionist at the Geneva Group investment firm . While Jan waited to hea r about the outcome of her i nterview, a position opened in the acco u n ti n g d e p a rt m e n t . With Jan's background at PLU i n busi­ ness, she was offered , instead of a phone and steno pad, a position in the accounting department. As her summer came to a close and Jan bega n to thi nk of return­ ing to PLU , the d ilemma de­ veloped of whether to quit her job and return to school or to quit school and continue to work. She wanted them both . And she espe­ cially liked her work. But with one semester to go, she wanted to finish her degree. With typical PLU ingenuity, Jan decided to see if she could have both worlds. She discussed her situation with her company presi ­ dent, Bruce Glaspell. a nd subm itt­ ed to him a proposed plan of action for working out her d ifficu l­ ties. Jan gave h i m a revised work schedule of 25-28 hours per week

(less tha n full -ti me), a request for 1 6 round-trip tickets to fly weekly to Sea-Tac and back or, alterna­ tively, a travel advance to pay for her tickets herself. She added a n end i ng note which stated : "Either way you decide, I would like to continue working for you on a full­ time basis i n J u ne if the opportun ­ ity exists . " Glaspell's response consisted of fu ll approval and one fina l com­ ment: "Wonderful . " With ' her job nailed down, Jan then had to work things out at PLU . Her' emphasis in finance lead her to discuss her plans with PLU Professors Andy Turner and John Meeh a n . Together they developed a personal program for Jan in which she would take both port­ folio management and i ndepen­ dent study with Andy Turner, bowling, and weight traini n g . T h e P . E . courses were required for Jan to g raduate, but she spent much of her ti me those days running from one place to the next with barely a second for relaxation or sports. She flew i nto Sea-Tac Wednes­ day afternoons for class at 6 : 30 p.m . , met with Andy Turner on Thu rsdays and Fridays to talk ab­ out h e r i n d e p e n d e n t s t u d y course, dabbled in bowling and weig ht lifting, then ca ught the night flight to the Golden State either Friday a round noidnight or Saturday morni ng . "Saturdays, " Jan claims, "were my catch-up days , " when she d id a little studying or bits and pieces of " rea l " work for the Geneva Group It was back to work on Sunday u ntil a nother Wednesday afternoon rol l ed a round a nd she left for PLU .

When asked how her fa mily and roommates felt about her 800mile weekly ja unts, Jan said that one room ma Le jokingly suggested that Jan take a week off so they could get to know each other. Her p a re nts, after some i n itial i n ­ credulity about the a p proved t r a v e l p roposa l J a n bro u g h t home, are very proud of Jan's i nitiative. Jan g rad uated in May Jan Johnson

the first of her siblings to g raduate from college. Much of Jan's good fortune came from pursuing it. But she also praised the School of Busi ness Adm i nistration at PLU for showing her that busi ness consists of a g reat deal of com prom ise, mutual satisfaction a nd bei ng good at what you do.


5 The Arts

The awesome oneness Of m ny Skones Resigns From PL U To A ccept Ne w Challenge A t U, Of Arizona

Dr. Maurice Skanes

By Jim Peterson

Is it our souls long ing to hear a host of angels that makes it so d ifficult not to be moved by great choral performance? Where else ca n one experience the awesome oneness of many, sharing an intensely personal ex­ perience with one a nother, their director and their l isteners? It takes an u ncom mon talent to create this nea rly heavenly one­ ness from an assemblage of dispa­ rate talents, and one of the finest has long been Dr. Maurice Skones, d irector of the Pacific Luthera n U niversity Choir of the West for the past 1 9 years. This past academic year was Dr. Skones' last at PLU . Next year the 56- yea r - o l d i n ternationa l l y - re ­ nowned director will head choral activities and the graduate prog­ ram in conducting at the universi­ ty of Arizona. Skones has been associated with the Arizona prog ram for many yea rs. He earned his doctorate there, and he was involved i n g raduate teach ing there d u ring a leave of absence from PLU a year ago. Accolades have rai ned constant­ ly on Skones and the Choir of the West during the nearly two de­ cades of his ten u re . There have been u ncou nted valiant attempts to express i n words reactions to the Choir, its sou nd, its message and its m usicianship. Words have ranged from expre­ SSions of the sim plest, but most profou n d, emotions to learned analyses of choral technique Duri ng Sko nes' te n u re, the Choir toured E u rope three times. Those tours inspired some of the most memora ble responses. It was also those tours that affected choir members themselves most i ntensely, althoug all perfo rm­ a nces - domestic or foreign,

formal practices and personal ex­ p e r i e n c e s ha ve i n f l u e n c e d , perhaps for a lifeti me, the lives of Choir members. For example, a Norwegian vicar recalled, in a letter to his local newspa per, "I had tears in my eyes. I could feel it down my spine. I was left with a strange thought: how can a choir create such a mood and s uch feelings i n a n audience? " A reviewer from N o rw a y ' s largest daily newspaper wrote, "By America n standa rds, PLU is a small un iversity. For that reason it is unbelievable that fu ll-ti me stu­ dents can achieve results which must be envied by many profes­ sional choirs . " German composer H a ns Werner Zimmerman is among many com­ posers who have la uded the choir. "Never did I dream I would hear my work so g randly and beautiful ­ l y interpreted! " h e exclaimed. Though audiences were the end beneficia ries, it was his students to whom Skones gave his first al­ legiance. That com mitment occa­ sionally raised q uestions why the Choir didn't sing more "popular" or well - known works. Skones would an swer that by giving students the opportunity to experience music at a " refined" level, it would help raise their own goals and their own visions. Ulti mately listeners benefited as well, as their consciousness and level of ap preciation was lifted. One former member of the Choir is Rev. Duane La rson of San Diego, who sang for Skones from 1 972-75. U pon hearing of his former d i rector's resig nation, he volu nteered an "editorial," having also been a former Mooring Mast editor. "There is very little t at stands out more in my memory than the fond recol lections I have of my time in the choir," he wrote. " . . His contri bution to the heritage of PLU and its music is almost i ncal -

culable; his influence on his stu­ dents stil l sustains - long after they have left the PLU ca mpus." After several personal recollec­ tions, including fond memories of Mrs. (Pat) Skones, he added, " I com mend t h e Skoneses for lifti ng the appreciation of music at PLU and among its audiences . . . Just as Luthera n music at its i nception was meant to speak to the whole human com m unity, so also has the Skones' commitment to con ­ temporary, i nclusive excellence raised the m usic of PLU a nd the Choir of the West to world class Sign ifica nce. "In this way the PLU 'ministry of the word through m usic: to the glory of God for His world, has been certifiably and honorably achieved, " he added . Noteworthy experiences have conti nued for Skones and the Choir into the final weeks of his

tenure. This spring the Choir was filrned for an a rts documenta ry by a national German television net­ work. The ensemble was invited to perform, and was la uded, at the America n Association of Chora l Directors' Conference i n Nashville, Tenn. And on tour the choir added two more titles to the long list of world and America n premieres it has presented . They were works by Polish composer K rzysztof Penderecki and PLU's own Dr. Cindy McTee, an alumnus and Penderecki proteg e. Nor was to be soon forgotten, a Seattle farewell concert May 20 at Phinney Ridge Lutheran C h u rch, w h ere former Choir members joined in singing "A Mig hty For­ tress." Or the fi nal graduation concert. So widely recog nized as a choral conductor, the fact that Skones served as cha irman of the PLU Department of M usic for 1 6 years is sometimes overlooked Yet his accomplishments there, including a five-fold increase in number of majors, em phasis on contem por­ a ry and other new music forms, and national accreditation has placed the department as a whole among the nation's elite. Skones has also been inspiration a l in de­ veloping plans for a new m usic building on campus. Skones' im pact on PLU, its m usic department, and the world of choral music has been moment­ ous. As Dr. Richa rd Moe, dean of the PLU School of the Arts, said recently, "Skones is clearly a gia nt a mong choral directors. His sta n­ dard is one which will serve as a m od e l f o r c h o i r d i r e c t o r s throug hout the entire world of choral music." T h ro u g h Skones' many pro­ teges, some of whom will now p u rsue their doctoral stud ies with him at the University of Arizona, that i mpact could continue for generations.

Prior to that time, Sparks served for seven years as founding d i rec­ tor and cond uctor of Seattle Pro M usica, a widely accla imed organi­ zation which featured the Pro Mu sica Singers, Bach Ensemble, and Pro Musica Cham ber O r ­ chestra .

(JL.. t1 ?� The Natu re Of U n ce rta i nty: To The Exte nt That It Lea ds To A Sea rch i n g , Th o u g htfu l Analysi s Of Opti o n s , I t C a n E n rich & E n oble Lives (Editor's note: The fol/owing address was deli­ vered by PLU President William 0, Rieke during PLU's 1983 Commencement exercises Sunday, May 22, 1 983, )

Spring Commencement 1 983! In but a brief mo ment hence, the conferral of deg rees will occur and we will have a rrived at a sig nal moment of honor to our g raduates, and comm end ation and tha nks to fa milies and friends who over the years have supported them , In a few moments beyond that. our Commencement prog ra m will conclude, and with that we will experience the successful ending of the 92nd yea r of Pacific Lutheran as an institution and the 22nd yea r as a university Great progress has been made in the l ives of both g raduates and institution i n the years that have led to May 22, 1 983, and in reflecting on what the president m ig ht say today that would speak to both persons and Un iversity, a Quip of a sage of many years ago came to mind , This writer reflected about education by stati ng, " Education is the process by which people progress from a cond ition of cock­ sure ignorance to one of thoughtful u ncer­ tainty. " I hope he was correct only a bout the "thoughtful" part! Yet, it certainly is true that both fo r graduates and for U niversity, uncertai nty has been a com ponent of all years past and especially of 1 982 -83, Sorry to say it, ladies and gentlemen of the g rad uating class, but even among your admirers there were some who were uncerta in you wou ld make it today, So, too, eve n a m o ng the U niversity ' s strongest staff and supporters there were those whose uncertain dou bts clouded the Questions of whether g round breaking for a new science center would ever occur, and whether in these d ifficult economic times the Un iversity c o u l d re m a i n f i n a n c i a l l y strong , Both because all of us have known some such uncertai nty, and because each of us su rely will experience more as our lives prog ress past today, I choose as my presiden­ tial comments on this Com mencement to offer four brief statements about the gener­ al nature of uncerta inty , 1 , The first i s that u nfortunately n o amount of past success will prevent future u ncerta i n ­ ty, The fact that a s students you have proven you rselves in magnificent fashion even agai nst many doubts and doubters; the fact that you will g raduate, that you have suc­ ceeded will not protect or isolate you from other doubts and uncertainties, some of which probably a l ready complicate the joy even of this moment. In this, the most restricted job market of the last 25 years, you must be asking, "Will I find employment? If so, will I be successful? Will I marry? Will i be happy? Will l ife be mea ningfu l ? " So, too, for the University the facts that the year ends financia lly in the black and that a new science center will in truth be built do not allay uncertainties about other needed facilities or the fiscal situation of the year a head , Even though advance registrations both of con­ ti nuing a nd new students a re cu rrently exactly as projected, uncertainty always will cloud the future, No - no a mount of past success will prevent future u ncertainty ,

2 , Second, uncerta inty, if a llowed to run unchecked, can be the worst of life's emo­ tions, Even more debilitating than out-and­ out bad news, uncertainty, both for persons and institutions, can be horrible, If we allow ou rselves to be overcome by it. it will reduce us to indecisive, fearful reeds, bowing to every wind, u nable to flou rish or even to take a stand, Worse yet, not only will it im mobilize us, but it will be the u ltimate cheat, robbing us of all joy, depriving us of the happi ness we should experience daily as we experience accom plish ment. Uncertai nty can' be the worst of l ife's emotions, 3, But third, uncertai nty can also be a productive force, To the extent that it leads us to a sea rching, thoug htful analysis of a l l options available for action, it can enrich a n d enno ble o u r lives, Here, graduates, your education at Pacific Lutheran Un iversity will serve you well. You have been exposed not only to a strong major or professional discipline, but also to the freeing, i nforming backg rou nd of centuries of human wisdom conveyed to you by you r study in liberal arts , Even in this age of science a nd technology you know, as does the UniverSity, that your strong tech nical or professional abilities must never sta nd alone or they soon will be outdated , Science a nd professions must always be informed by the l i beral arts to remain creative, adaptible and h u mane, So, too, must the liberal arts be informed by scie nce to rem a i n releva nt. Y o u , the graduates, and also we of the U n iversity, have experienced this and will continue analysis of all options for response to life's chal lenges , 4, Fou rth a nd finally, uncertai nty can be mastered if, after analyzing options, we respond with positive action. Peters and Waterman in their new publication, In Search of Excellence, note that one of the comm on traits of successful corporations is a bias for action , You, the successfu l g raduates, have consistently shown such a bias, and must conti nue it, as so also must the U n iverSity, But. given the problems of u ncertai nty, the Question becomes not whether to act. but how to fi nd the will to act, How humanly ca n

Dr, William O. Rieke

we u n reservedly commit to action? Here people together with the U n iversity embrace the g reat, if mysterious, truth that ou r faith in God in fact frees us to commit action, That faith says we a re loved no matter what the result of our action, Whether we win or lose we a re loved, and being so assu red, we a re lifted above u ncertai nty to become both freed and charged with tryi ng. How extraordi nari ly proud I a m of you g raduates. You are why the U n iversity exists. Dare always to commit to action; never give less tha n you r best! Love! Serve! Forgive! Make the world better, Y o u can! Uncertai nty - a continuing problem - yet a potential for gOOd. How remarka ble and paradoxical it is that we solve u ncertainty by comm itting to that which is the least provable and, in that sense, the most uncertain of all - namely, faith in God. But com mit to faith we do, And in that faith in God a nd in his son Jesus Ch rist we recognize the end of one phase of your l ives and of a school year, but simu ltaneously the beg i nning of yet the next step for you and the U n iversity, God bless, g u ide and strengthen all of us that tomorrow 's u ncerta inties will lead to even more good tha n those uncertai nties which have brought us to today,

$3 M i llion Mark Passed By PLU Q C l u b I n 11th Year Since Founding By John Aakre Associate Di rector of Development

The Q Club's total contributions since 1 972 topped the $3 million mark this spring. With the exception of the United Way, no other organization in Pierce County - including BASH - brings in more gifts each year than the Q Club. Lorin Ginther, Q Club President, noted that " milestones l ike $3 million a re not i mportant in and of themselves, but for what they represent. We're excited because those Q Club g ifts represent help to thousa nds of students. But equally important, they repre­ sent a comm itment by the members of the Q Club to maintai ning and enhancing the quality of the programs offered at PLU . " The $ 3 million total was a nnounced at the Q Clu b's 1 2th Annual Banquet on April 30th . A record turnout of over 550 Q Club members listened to a fine message by Dr. Roland Bai nton, the evening's featured speaker.

An Individual Retirement Accou nt (IRA) provides valuable tax benefits . Tax payers who establish such I RAs a re allowed to deduct from their gross ea rn ings the lesser of 1 00% of earnings or $2000 per year if funds are placed into an IRA account. If both spouses are worki ng, each may establish their own separate IRA. If one s pouse is not employed, two IRAs cannot be more than $2250 (neither IRA may exceed $2(00). Contri butions may be made i nto IRA accounts until age 70% . Any contributions withdrawn from the ' I RA prior to age 59112 become taxable, and a penalty also is assess­ ed on such a withdrawa l . The only exception to this withdrawal penalty is if the participa nt becomes disabled or dies. Income earned by an IRA is tax free u ntil d istributed . For this reason, an I RA is an excellent tax shelter which is available to a l l Americans, even those i n what a re consi ­ dered the "lower" income levels. IRAs offer another potential - as a gift. Many people do not know that they can stipulate a charitable org a nization such as Pacific Lutheran University as a primary, secondary, or contingent beneficiary of their IRA . As you establish your IRA, we urge you to consider this option in your planning .

Life's Forbidden Doors: Th ey Need To Be Opened By Harvey Neufeld Executive Director, Collegiu m C h u rch Relations

M i lt Nesvig is better again. PLU's perennial " most loved Lute" still needs a little R and R, but he's better. He'll be taking his tou r again, looking forward to Norway with a n ecstasy genera lly reserved for heavenly homes, not pioneer bi rthplaces. I'm glad his health is on the mend. A few weeks ago when they said he was i n intensive ca re, one could not help but feel anxious. The problem, a minor infla m mation, was soon taken care of and M ilt was back at home in a few days. But I want to mention something else which. I hope will be the point of this col u m n . I nten sive ca re wards are miracles of medicine, at least to people who deal in medicine. But to the lay person, well, that's a d ifferent story. Does a ny of this sound fam iliar, this problem of how you get to see someone in a hospital? The woman at the information desk directs you to a n elevator: "Straight ahead, on your .Ieft, up to 4th, left, then left again. Ask there . " She knows where it is, but after her clipped instructions, you don't. You pass a n enormous cabi net with flow­ ers . Already you feel g u i lty because you should have seen you r friend sooner. Now you realize a flower guilt trip. You ca n't find the elevator the first time. Others stand around as awkwardly as you . Everyone looks confused . You don't buy flowers but find your way to the 4th floor, turn left, a nd left agai n . Too fa r! A n u rse d ressed like a g reen bank robber ushers you to a waiti ng room . That's the hardest part. Wa iting . Next to me is a dear elderly lady, obviously in g reat d istress. She saw her h usband go in to i ntensive care - hours ago. She's frantic - can 't anyone help? Two chaplains h u rry by. Is that g ood or bad? Why can't we go through those doors? No admittance . For­ bidden doors. The a nxious lady joined me in helpful, idle conversation. The weather, children, l u nch left on the kitchen table. It was a calming a nd worthwhile time. But she wanted some news of her h usband. We decided to wait no longer. I took her arm a nd marched valiantly i nto the corridor of med ical hope. I must see Nesvig . She must see her husband. There were people beh i nd those doors, weird ly u niformed a nd otherwordly, but people. They would help. And they d id . Consterna­ tion a nd a nxiety were at once laid aside. When you know the goal (like a summer vacation), a ntici pation is everything . B ut when the outcome, the end resu It, the goal is unclear, a ntici pation can be devastating. Life's forbidden doors need to be opened. M ilt was great! The lady's husband is on the road to full recovery! We shouldn't have worried. I should have learned my lesson from the flowers which neither toil nor reap.

Business Needs Liberal Arts Crads. Leaders Tell Students At Consortium By Sally MacDonald Seattle Times

Attn . liberal a rts majors: Hang in there. It may look like all the best jobs are going to college g raduates with techn ical training, but business still has a s pot at the top for students of a rt, history, economics and psychology. That's the soothing message about two dozen i nfluential busi ­ ness leaders gave a like number of anxious l iberal arts students from private colleges in April at the Washi ngton I ndependent Student Consortium at Pacific Lutheran University . The news produced an almost audible sigh of relief among the students. Business needs graduates with "a good, rou nded" education, Charles Lenard, treasurer of Pacific Northwest Bell, assured the stu ­ dents. And, sooner or later, 50 percent of students who have chosen liberal arts studies are going to come to business for a job. Tech nical workers will get the best jobs in the beg i n ning, Lenard and other businessmen sa id. But the best corporate jobs eventually will go to employees who ca n write a good business letter, organize time, make good decisions and lead other emp­ l oyees, the b u s i ness leaders agreed. And that is where the liberal a rts graduate shi nes. "The most important thing you learn i n college is how to learn," Lenard said. "It's like you come away f r o m c ol l e g e w i t h a f r amework to beg i n p i n n i ng things on. A skeleton. Whe n you get out in business, you'll begin putting meat on those bones. " Just how does the liberal a rts student who has been spending his four college years learning how

to learn, convi nce the personnel d i rector that's better than learn­ ing how to program com puters? "I kind of associate it with exercise, " said Lenard. "When you are a run ner you can read books and watch films a bout the techn i ­ que of running. B u t u nless you go out and run every day you won't have any wind for other activities. The run ner makes a better football player, a better basketball player. It's the same with the mind. You 've got to train the m i nd to think, to conceptualize " The ability to communicate is the sing le most necessary attri ­ bute a good employee ca n have, the busi nessmen told the stu ­ dents in small g roup sessions. "In tal ki ng to you ng people I always suggest the most impor­ ta nt thing they can do is learn to read and write," said Edgar A. Carpenter, assistant to the general manager of PACCAR. Some well-trai ned employees have been sidetracked for years because they can't write a busi­ ness letter, said Russell Olson, treasurer of Puget Sou nd Power a nd Light Co. Students should take a little accou nti ng, economics or mar­ keting to go along with the litera­ ture and history, they said. Most important, the business leaders said, liberal a rts students s h o u l d spend their su mmers working i n a bank or a busi ness. Above all, the liberal a rts stu ­ dents should learn patience, sev­ eral business leaders pOinted out. Kenneth Derr, president of Chevron U .S.A., advised the stu­ dents to remain optimistic, even i n a depressed job market. The conference was co-spon­ sored by Chevron, Independent Colleges of Washington, PLU and the Washington Independent Stu ­ dents' Consortium.

he personal Approach

Efficiencv, Sophistication No Substitute For Caring Counseling Of Prospective Students By JIm Peterson

It is qu ite amazing when you thin k about it Yea r after year, through boom ti mes and recessions, approxi ­ mately 1 ,000 new students enroll at Pacific Lutheran U niversity each fall. Nea rly 700 a re freshmen; the remainder are transfer students . They come from all parts of the world, all wa lks of life, and all income levels. In a broad sense, there may be hundreds of people i nvolved in the process: a l u m n i , pa rents, teachers, chu rch leaders, friends, cou nselors and other PLU faculty and administrators. Each contact, each word of encouragement and guida nce contributes to decisions made by thousands of students each yea r Still, i n a more specific sense, the major responsi bility for fi nding, reach ing, advising a nd processing student prospects falls on a rela­ tively tiny band of people in the PLU Admissions Office . For many years the tas k has been accomp­ lished with a professional staff of four, plus two in the Financial Aid office. This year the staff i ncreases to five, stil l one of the smallest Jim Van Beek

a mong com pa rable schools " Each year we must be more efficient and more sophisticated , " observed the dean of adm issions, Jim Van Beek, recently This summer Van Beek cele­ brated the 20th anniversa ry of his appointment to the PLU Ad mis­ sions staff. The former PLU bas­ ketball g reat (SA '59) has seen well over �alf of all PLU students pass through the Admissions doors during his two-decade te nure, and he has become a "dea n " among Luthera n a n d Northwest adm issions professionals as wel l . "The task has become more d ifficult in rece n t years , " he noted . "Two important factors have been the changes in financial aid and the nationwide reduction in the pool of col lege-age stu­ dents . " u nder the guida nce of Financial Aid Director AI Perry, PLU has mai ntained a carefu l stewardship of available dollars to be a ble to assist as many students as gener- · ously as possible. More than 70 percent of students receive aid; a n "average" package covers nearly half of a student's campus costs. The decline in the student pool has necessitated an increase in PLU's outreach to prospective stu­ dents. Traditionally, PLU has work-

ed more personally and intensively with a smal ler nu mber of pros­ pects than most col leges. "Our list h a s n o rm a l ly been less than 1 0,000, " Van Beek exp l a i ned "Some of our sister schools com ­ m u nicate with ove r 60,000 and work with some 30,000 to enroll 1 ,000 students . " One way of reach ing more pros ­ pects the past th ree years has been to participate i n the Ameri­ can Lutheran Church/Luth era n Church in America student search, he indicated . That search identifies nearly 1 5 ,000 additional North­ west prospects out of some 5060,000 Lutheran students nation­ wide. I nstitutio n a l advertising and marketi ng techniques have be­ come increasingly important tools in recent years as well, he indi­ cated . Nevertheless, it is the personal, one-to-one relationship with stu ­ dents that remains the most i m ­ portant, the dean observed . "Thus the conti nued diligence of the professional staff remains critica l, but equa lly i mportant is the vast and g rowing network of PLU con ­ stituencies," h e sai d . T h e number of PLU alu m n i , parents a n d frie nds, a s well as Luthera n constituencies g rows sig nificantly each yea r, both i n numbers a nd in i nfluence, accord­ ing to Va n Beek . Their professional and personal reputations enha nce the i mage of PLU a n d their words of advice and encou ragement af­ fect the decisions of many stu­ dents, he observed . It is among these constituencies that the PLU Ad missions Office plans to build an even stronger base of support To help accomp­ lish this, Van Beek has appointed s e c o n d -yea r cou nselor C i ndy Michael assistant dean of admis­ sions a nd coordinator of vol u n ­ teer admissions representatives/ projects (see related story). At the same time, however, there will be no red uction i n the un iversity's normal outreach . Van Beek's staff also includes Phil Mi ner, associate dean of admis­ sions who, in addition to h is recru iting res p o n s i b i lities, has vastly contributed to PLU's visi bili­ ty and reputation i n the minority commun ity Mi ner has served on the PLU . admissions staff since his gradua­ tion from Pacific U niversity, Forest Grove, O re., in 1 972. In add ition to several profession a l leaders h i p posts, h e i s a member of the board of di rectors of the Tacoma urba n League and the Tacoma chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

Visiting An Inser table Land PL U Tour Group Finds Fascinating Similarities Between China, U. S. By Jim Peterson

Though the Bamboo Curtain has been pa rted for a decade, and Westerners are visiting the Peo­ ple's Repu blic of China in increas­ ing numbers, there a re vast reg­ ions of the a ncient. inscrutable l a n d t h a t re m a i n v i rt u a l l y unknown . Western visitors, most of whom tour Guangzhou , Beijing and the Great Wall, are apt to lea rn no more of China than Europeans do of the U.S. when they visit New York City, Boston, Ph iladelphia and Washington, D.C., and go home. This past summer a Pa cifi c Lutheran university study tour ventured out of the g reat Eastern PRC metropolises into a China that . few Westerners - few Chinese for that matter - ever see. It was the kind of backcountry tou r on which Cha rles Kuralt would have felt comfortable. The China they found bore l ittle res e m b l a n c e to co m m o n stereotypes. Geog ra phy, cultures, history and people were strikingly different from the East. The PLU group was a lso fascinated by the simila rities between China and the U .S., simila rities all the more startl­ ing when they realized they were co mparing one of the world's oldest major civilizations with one of the newest. The vast PRC is compa rable in size to the U nited States and geog ra p h ic similarities seemed eerily consistent. The PLU tour's 3, 200-mile bus and train adven­ tu re began at Xia n, comparabl e on a U . S. map to Cincin nati, Ohio. Most China tours venture no farther west than Xian , the cou n­ try's ancient capital and site of the newest archaeological wonder of the world: the vast u nderg round terra cotta a rmy bu ried with China's fi rst emporor, Qin Shi Huang Di, over 2,000 years ago. The next major city to the west is Lanzhou , set on a dusty loess soil plateau above the Huang He (Yel­ low) River. It is the Gateway to China's West. the em barkation point for travelers on the Marco Polo - or Silk - Roa d . The students were easily reminded of Omaha and st. Louis back home, the gateways to the Lewis and Clark and Oregon Trails. And the tra i ls traverse their respective

countries in mu ch the s a m e northwesterly direction ! The P LU group, under the lead­ ership of PLU lecturer Mun-Jong F u n g . conti n u e d to n o te similarities as their jou rney prog ­ ressed, thought they often blurr­ ed between American Northwest and Southwest. They crossed the Gobi Desert, where they visited ghost towns a n d exa mined ear­ then structures similar to the adobe of the American South ­ west. At D u n h u a n g , co m p a r a b l e geog raphically to Casper, Wyo . , the adobe structu res a re called the Mogao Grottos (little caves), according to Fung . The grottos conta in the largest collection of Buddhist a rt i n the world - sculp­ tures and mura ls crafted over the centuries by Buddh ist pilgrims on their way to India. Forgotten for centuries, they were rediscovered by a Taoist priest nearly a centu ry ago, but were plundered and vandalized by foreign profiteers before only recently bei ng re­ stored by the PRC government. Conti n uing westward, the stu dy tou r visited Turpan <Butte, Mont. 7 ) and Uru mqi (Spoka ne). Tu rpan is a

desert oasis, where wells derive thei r water from the nea rby Tia n Sha n Mountains (China's Rockies). "Turpan is the place where we really began to see the differences between western China and the rest of the country , " Fung said. "Out west most of the people are Muslims and have cu ltu res quite unlike those of the rest of China . The peoples in Turpa n and Urumqi are mostly Uyg urs (pronounced 'Way-gurs') and Kazakhs - Turkish peoples with cultural ties to Tu r ­ k e y , Afg h a n ista n , Persia a n d Northwest India . Their physical characteristics bore little resembl­ a n c e to o u r c o n c e p t o f 'Chinese .

Urumqi is the world's most inland city and is near the Soviet border, Fu ng explained . T h e re a re ot h e r s t r i k i n g s i m i l a rities . C h i n a is relatively sparsely populated in the West Though there are 40 million peo, pie liVing there, they represent only four percent of China'S popu­ lation. The Han people a re the vast majority in China, with the coun ­ try's 5 4 recognized minorities liv­ ing, like the Uyg urs and Kazakhs, primarily in the South and West In the U.S , French, Lati n , African, Native American , and Asian influ ­ ences a re also strongest i n the South and West Dr. Greg Guldin, PLU G l o b a l Studies director, China expert, tour coordi nator and husband of Fung, explained that among the world's large countries with signif­ i ca nt m i n o rity p o p u l a ti o n s , C hi n a ' s m i nority pol icies a r e among the most successful. "There has been a history of H a n chauvinism," he explained . "Their historical attitude was civilization vs. the barba rian, But that is changing. The government has been s uccessful in convincing

minorities that this Han regime is different from its predecess ors. "Thoug h the mi nority groups are responsible to the centra l governme nt. they are a llowed to remain quite cu ltu rally autonom­ ous, " he added . There is relatively little inter­ m i n g l i n g a m o n g the cu ltu ral g ro u ps, G u l d i n i n d icate d , a l ­ thoug h Han migration to these "frontier a reas" presents the loca l population s with the same prob­ lem of being numerically over­ whelmed that our Native Ameri ­ can populations have faced . As the PLU study tour continued west. the participants noted strik­ ing differences i n people's clo­ thing, l ifestyle, occupation s and architectu re, in addition to physiC­ al characteristics. The many variations reflected influences and heritages from In­ dia, Persia, the Soviet Union, and Near Eastern civilizations of cen- . turies past. the many a n d varied travelers who have journeyed to the exotic Far East along the Marco Polo Road . It was a vast and vibrant civiliza­ tion in a land larger than the U nited States, yet virtually u n ­ known t o the world outside.

The recent People's Republic of China mandate for only one child per fa mily is the greatest "special education" concern among Chin­ ese educators, according to Dr. Kent Gerlach . The Pacific Lutheran Un iversity director of special education was one of 1 0 U .s educators i nvited to the PRC in August to discuss special education. He was the only member of the group from a campus west of the Appalachian Mounta ins, he discovered. The sessions at the University of Beijing and Beijing Teachers Col­ lege were sponsored by the U .s ­ Ch ina People's Friendship Associa­ tion of Boston and organized by the Beijing Mu nicipal Bureau of Higher Education. "There really is no special educa­ tion as we know it in China," Gerlach said. "Before you can develop teacher expertise i n spe­ cial education, you have to deal with adequate trai ning for the regular classroom teacher. " The U.S. educators were obliged to do a quick shuffle when the discussion kept returning to the Chinese "only child" concern. "A single plant is difficult to culti ­ vate," they worried, having been accustomed to large families. "We tried to explain to them the advantages only children usually have in th is country: more paren­ tal attention and often broader educational and life experiences , " Gerlach explained. Among Chinese prog rams for handicapped visited by the group were a handicapped workers' fac­ tory and a program to teach acupu ncture and massage skills to the blind. "There are few programs for severely or multiple handicapped c h i l d ren , " Gerlach conti n ued . "Both mild and moderately hand­ icapped a re educated in the regu ­ l a r classroo m . " He expressed satisfaction with the degree of acceptance that handicapped children seemed to receive from their peers. I n seve r a l res pects , b o t h methods and attitudes of teach­ ers and students seemed reminis­ cent of the U .s of a couple of generations ago, he indicated. China is still feeling the effects of the Cu ltu ral Revolution, which effectively suspended education for over a decade. "They a re stil l in the process of teaching teachers to teach other teachers rather tha n teaching teachers for the Classroom," Gerlach said. H e added, "They are moving rapidly. Five years from now there will be a vast improvement But it will be a long time before they have enough qualified teachers. "

China Seeks Management Expertise To Help Spur Economic Growth By Jim Peterson

There is vast potential fo r economic g rowth in the People's Republic of China. But to take a d v a n t a g e of the potenti a l , China's decision m a kers must know much more a bout modern ma nagement techniques The observation was made by Dr. Thad Barnowe, a Pacific Luthe­ ran University associate professor of business administration who spent the 1 982 -83 academic yea r teaching at Zhongshan U niversity in Guangzhou (Canton). Barnowe was the first Fulbrig ht lecturer i n business to teach in China since 1 949. Last year was only the thi rd year that the Ful­ bright exchange has been reins­ tated with China . "The Chinese realize their man­ agement shortcomings and a re taking steps which will help , " said Barnowe. One measure is the high priority given to a new business teacher exchange prog ra m . There will be more Western economics and business educators like Bar­ nowe teaching in China. And the PRC also intends to send as many as possible of their you nger busi­ ness and economics professors to the United States a n d England for further education. Two of those Chinese profes­ s o rs a re expected to beg i n graduate studies a t Pacific Luthe­ ran before the end of this yea r. Last February a formal exchange a g reement between PLU and Zhongshan University was signed During his year at Zhongshan, Barnowe ta u g ht both u n der­ g ra d uates and Chinese faculty members. though he used a "fai r­ ly sophisticated" American man­ agement textbook, he found that significant adaptation was neces­ sary All the Chinese students had studied English for at least three years, but they did have difficul­ ties, particularly with tech nical lan­ guage. Students enthusiastically received the "America n " content of his courses, he said, and sought ways to a pply them to Chinese organizations. Barnowe specu lated that con ­ vulsions during the Cultural Re­ volution have had a lingering ef­ fect on Chinese educators. "Dur­ i n g that period, 1 966-76, educators were banished , " h e said . "Though many older teach­ ers have since returned and have been reinstated, they a re wary. No one wants to be branded later as having strayed from accepted

ideology. " You nger educators too have been hurt, by receiving poor training during the period of re­ building u niver5'ities. Barnowe expresses confidence, however, that current PRC prag­ matism will endure. "They have long been determined to build a socialist spi ritual civilization , " he continued . "But they also real ize that they must also build a mate­ rial civilization . "That is a radical departure from the days of Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai," Barnowe noted. " For a quarter century, everything that was material was shunned . " J ust during the past year, a n amazing num ber of changes were a n nounced, he i ndicated . People h ave been a l l ow e d to sta rt businesses . The central economy is still in practice but has been relaxed . They're trying different methods of compensation, such as incentive pay. "On the management side, de­ cision making is becoming impor-

tant at all levels, not only at the top, " Barnowe explained "They want to do strategic plan n i ng and marketin g , and are eager to learn more in these areas . " "They are open to the concept of participat­ ory management, but as is also true in the U S , it is more preach ­ ed than practiced, " he added . Even as there have been vast changes in the past five years, Barnowe predicts that the PRC will be even more radically different five years from now, pa rticu larly with respect to consumer goods and conveniences. That "revolution" has barely beg un, but just d u ring the past year, many more people have television, wrist watches, bicycles, of · course, and other consumer goods, he indicated The P LU professor believes the Chinese have the commitment, energy and talent to make rapid gains. At present they lack know­ ledge, expertise a n d money. Though still poor a nd backward by Western standards, the relative

speed of their future prog ress could be astounding In a rapidly changing world, it is a challenge for developed countries to keep up. Having lost years, if not decades, of normal prog ress op­ portu nities, the Chinese face a monu mental task in trying to catch up. In 8arnowe's esti mation, the likelihood of their success, if they stay their current course, is g reat.

PLU Cou rse I nternationalization Add resses Need s Of Busi ness Late this su mmer, for the first time, U S trade across the Pacific Ocean surpassed trade across the Atlantic. The continuing trend toward more trade with Pacific Rim na­ tions further enhanced the signifi­ cance of a national seminar co­ sponsored in J u ne by Pacific Luthera n U n iversi ty a n d t h e American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. More than 60 scholars from across the cou ntry gathered i n Seattle for a seminar on "internationalization" of busi­ ness courses. It was the first time that a national MCSB seminar featured an emphasis on relations with Pacific Rim countries, according to coordinator Dr. Gundar King, dean of the PLU School of Business Administration. Seminar participants were facul ­ ty f r o m accre d i ted b u s i ness schools i nt e r e s te d i n i n te r ­ n a t io n a l i z i n g t h e i r b u s i ness courses. MCSB is the national accrediting agency for business schools. Internationalization is the new­ est of seve ral efforts with i n academe to provide students with practical knowledge a bout the cu ltures a nd business practices of other countries. PLU was selected to co-sponsor and host the semi ­ nar because of its ranking a s a

national leader in internationaliza­ tion efforts. Earl ier efforts nationwide have included separate departments or schools of internationa l studies or i nternational divisions within busi­ ness schools. Neither concept has addressed the need satisfactorily, according to King. "Columbia U niversity's g raduate school. for instance, just eliminated its international divi­ sion, " he observed. "They felt it was better to i nternationalize the entire schoo l . " By internationalizing a regular curriculum, students lea rn to deal with specific problems - i n ac­ cou nting, finance or ma rketing ­ not only from a U S perspective, but those of other cu ltures . " For example, when currencies a re exchanged, investment or contractual risks change," King explained. "In an accounting class, a student can work with a set of books for a com pany with a Canadian subsidiary "Or a contract can be written in yen rather than dollars," he noted . "Contractors should be aware of the risks as they change with the currency . " The i m pact of exchange rates i s illustrated b y the Boeing com ­ pany's recent drop from first to thi rd a mong U .S. exporters. C u r­ rent rates, based on the relative strength of the dollar have hurt Boeing, King indicated .

He continued, "Styles and roles of management cha n g e from country to cou ntry. It is helpful to know with whom you are dealing and how they make decisions. As a final point, King added. "Business ethics vary from coun ­ try to country, further complicat­ ing the l ife of the American execu­ tive . " Specifics such as these can more efficiently and effectively be ad­ dressed in the regular course structure, i nteg rating the interna­ tional dimension, according to King. Two yea rs ago PLU spea rheaded formation of the Consortium for I nte rnati o n a l E d ucation, com­ prised of seven Northwest univer­ sities . Supported by g rants from the Fund for Improvement of Post-Secondary Education, con ­ sorti u m s c h o o l s a r e i n t e r ­ nationalizing their curricula . The PLU School of Busi ness A d m i n i s t ra t i o n h a s i n t e r­ nationalized all of its required courses, a nd electives a re being i nternationalized this yea r, a c ­ cording to King . During the seminar, theory and methods of internationalization were explained by one expert f r o m F r a n ce a n d b u s i n e s s educators from across the coun­ try. Actual international trade ex­ periences were shared by experts from Rainier National Bank.

Menzel's New B ok Probes Mora li tv Of Medical Costs At what pOint does sOCiety spend too much on health care? When are the benefits of com ­ prehensive care too few, its costs too g reat? How do we know when care provided by insurance might sim ply not be worth its cost? These questions, which underlie the cu rrent attempt to halt the rise in medical costs, are among h e i s s u e s a d d ressed by philosopher Dr. Paul Menzel i n his provocative and i m portant new boo k , Med i c al Costs, Moral Choices.

M e n z e l , a p rofe s s o r o f philosophy at Pacific Lutheran U n ­ iversity, aims to delineate the ideal of costworthy health care and reaches some interesti ng c�ncl u­ sions. For exa mple, he contends that if i ndivid uals had to choose what to spend on their own health care they would spend only a limited amount of the resou rces available to them . "The fewer the re­ sou rces, the more other needs compete with one's desire for , state-of-the-art health care," he mainta ins. This fact has im porta nt im plica­ tions if we believe in the auton ­ omy of the individual, Menzel conti nues . He concludes, for ex­ ample, that individual human life ought to have a fin ite price and that public assistance for the poor should. be given largely as income mai ntenance rather than as " i n ­ kind" prog ra ms such a s Medicaid . Menzel probes i nto other con ­ troversial issues su rrounding the contain ment of health care costs the morality of both patient cost sharing and tax deductions for medica l care; the moral value of crisis ca re as opposed to prior prevention; the com petition for health care resources between the elderly and the young, the more and the less ill, and those with rare and those with more common diseases; and the j ustifi ­ cation of physicians' incomes. The book, published i n Sep­ tember by Yale University Press, is expected to be a valuable resource for scholars and policy makers in the field of health care.

Dr. Dale Croes. And George Mac­ Donald, d irector of the National Museum of Man i n Ottawa , Cana ­ da, told Croes recently " I have not hea rd of any wooden remai ns from North America Cln y older tha n he ones you have just encountered . ' , The 5 % - i n ch ced r c a rving formed the ha ndle of a weavi ng tool, expl ined Croes, who fo r the past seven sum mers has led ex­ plorations at the mouth of the Hoko River on Wa shi ngto n ' s Olympic Peninsula. Croes says the object probably was used as a creaser employed in the making of sewn reed mats thought to have covered tem por� ary shelters used by the Makah I ndians in the spring a nd summer. The oldest previous such wood scul ptu re discovered i n the North­ west was ca rved about 1 ,600 years ago � nd found at the Lachane dig at Pri nce Ru pert Harbor i n British Columbia. The Makah carving was found J u ly 8 by Ian Ritch ie, 21 . a PLU anthropology student who had never done archaeological field work before Ritchie said he knew he'd found something extraordinary in the soggy riverbank as soo n as he washed the d i rt away from the object's carved eye. Researchers believe the dig site on the Hoko River's west ba nk was pa rt of a halibut fishing ca mp used by the Makahs between 1 ,500 and 3,000 yea rs· ago. The water that stil l soaks the embankment preserved the carv­ ing and other Indian relics found at the site, according to Croes . T h e l a te s t f i n d i s a m o n g thousa nds of artifacts uncovered since work sta rted at the Hoko dig, the oldest a rchaeological site on the Washi ngton coast. Croes, who also directs the Washington Ar­ chaeological Research Cente r at Washi ngton State University, and other researchers say their goal is to document the Makah lifestyle 3,000 years into the past. The Hoko dig encompasses two sepa rate enca mpments Along the riverbank, where the carving was found, was a halibut fish ing village used duri ng the spring and summer months, Croes said . East of the river's mouth, along the Strait of Juan de Fuca, is a rock shelter inhabited by Makahs u p to 1 ,500 years ago during the wi nter sal mon fishing seaso n . The digging crew included 3 5 professionals a n d students who worked throughout the summer. � roes expects to wrap up explora ­ tions next sum mer, concluding with a detailed survey of other reputed prehistoric Makah villages i n the vicinity.

DOE Grant Provides sti pends For Grad uate students In Special Ed. Twe nty - o n e tea c h e r s fro m Puget Sound area school d istricts have received $ 1 ,200 scholarships to e n roll in Pacific Lutheran U n ­ iversity's master's prog ram i n spe­ cial ed ucation . The stipends have been made possible by a g rant from the U . S. Depa rtment of Education. The th ree-yea r $ 1 20,000 g rant makes possible training of consulting teachers to work with handicapp­ ed students "ma i nstreaming" i n reg ular classrooms. Accord ing to Dr. Kent Gerlach, PLU specia l education director, there is a need for q ualified teach ­ ers to provide support and consul­ tation to regular classroom teach­ ers who have handicapped stu­ dents. Gerlach ind icated that the con ­ sulting teacher model i s bei ng used on a l i m ited or expe rimental basis in several area school dis­ tricts. It is a response to PL 94 -1 42, which req uires that handicapped students be ta ught in the least restrictive environment. " P reviously, services to stu­ dents with mild or moderate lea rn ing or behavioral problems were taught in self-contai ned or resou rce room settings, " Gerlach said. "Now many are being ta ught in regular classrooms . " A crucial ingredient i n the suc-

cess of "mainstrea ming" is co n­ tin uous and effective support for the reg u lar classroom teacher, he added . Recipients of the PLU Project ConSEPT stipends teach in 1 2 school d istricts in Pierce, King and North Th urston cou nties. They all have experience teaching hand­ icapped students. Add itional schola rships will be awarded under the progra m dur­ ing the next two years, according to Gerlach .

He indicated that the trust's board which selected PLU for the g ift did so "because PLU 's School of Busi ness Admi nistration has the reputation of being the best in the area . " Accepting the g ift from Heath and trust officers, PLU President Dr. William O. Rieke expressed pleasure that the gift is the first major g ift applied toward a recent endowment challenge g rant to PLU from Luthera n Brotherhood Life I nsurance Compa ny. The g ra nt adds one dollar for every two donated from other sources, ac­ cording to PLU development offi­ cials. Heath, 93, is a retired Seattle a nd Tacoma banker and busi nessman now residing in Olympia . He began his career as a Bank of California messenger boy 7 6 years ago. After own ing or operating sev­ eral banks in Seattle, Auburn a nd Tacoma, Heath served as admi nis­ trator of Tacoma General Hospital for 1 2 years.

Rieke, the grant will establish a carefu lly plan ned prog ­ ram of organizational restructur­ ing , faculty education and experi­ mental course design involving com puter-assisted and compu­ ter - based instruction . "Th is planned entree to a vastly different education methodology is i nte n d ed to m i n i m ize the hazards and pitfalls other i nstitu­ tions have experienced, " Rieke said. "We expect it to hasten the time when we can fully and economic­ ally i nteg rate the computer ' re­ volution' i nto our educational ef­ forts i n a way consistent with our general educational goals," he added . PLU plans to establish an office of academic computer services to coordinate university computer services related to i nstruction and education. The Honeywell stipend will pro­ vide for faculty planners who will help establish a master pla n for creating a faculty computer train­ ing center, enlisting faculty com­ puter trainees, a nd i ntegrating computers into the curriculum. It will also provide for computer tra i ning of an initially selected g roup of faculty members.

also u nderway this fall. In the fall of 1 980, PLU faculty and staff helped launch the capital drive by pledg­ ing $31 0,000 over a three-year period. The 76 percent pa rticipation achieved at that time spoke very highly of campus comm itment and made a strong statement of s u p port wh ich has influenced many other donors, according to capital campaigns director Sam ­ mie Davis. The current campaign is a con­ ti nuation of that effort and an opportunity to reach faculty and staff who have joi ned the universi­ ty in the past th ree years. Volu nteer campus cam paign of­ ficials include Dennis M .

New PLU Project Boosts use Of Computers In NW Luthera n Churches Greater understanding and use of c o m p u t e r s i n L u t h e ra n churches is the goal of a Pacific Lutheran University project re­ cently fu nded by g rants from Luthera n Brotherhood and Aid Association for Lutherans . According to project director Dr. Eldon Schafer, Lutheran con ­ g regations in the Northwest are bei ng offered the opportu nity to have their church staffs tra ined in the use of computers . The project began as a response to a request from the America n Luthera n church to provide train­ ing a pplicable to Lutheran Congre­ gational l nformation System ( LC IS) software. An $18,300 stipend from Luthe­ ra n Brotherhood provides soft­ wa re for the program and some levels of trai ning . The $15,000 ML grant p rovides scholarship assist­ ance for some of the church staffers enrolled in the program and materials for other training levels. Schafer, an accounting profes­ sor at PLU, indicated that the new service includes five phases: inter­ est sessi o n s , d e m o n strations, hands-on training, support semi­ nars and follow-up consulti ng ser­ vices. Trainers, in a d d ition to Schafer, a re economics professor Dr. Marlen Miller, accou nti ng pro­ fessor Dr. Dwight Zula uf, PLU microcomputer center director Scott Morgan, a nd students David

Johnson and Alex Evans. Business professor Jerry Myers will join the staff later, Schafer indicated . As the three-year project gets underway, seminars to date have already touched more than 1 00 of the 700 cong regations which po­ tentially can be involved, he re­ ported. LCIS softwa re allows a cong rega­ tion to use the speed and adapta­ bility of a microcompute r to hand­ le membership, contribution and financial records. For more information call the PLU Microcomputer Center, 535871 � .

Dr. Elmer Witt, c.:'lmtral regional direc­ tor of the National Lutheran Campus Ministry, has been appointed the new executive director of Holden Village, the inter-Lutheran retrea t center near Chelan, Wash. PLU and Holden have enjo yed a mutuaffy beneficial working relationship since the center was founded more than 20 years ago.

World Premiere

New MCTee Composition A Tribute TO Martin Luther And His Times By Joe M. COff m an

Dr. Ci ndy McTee doesn't let much g rass grow un der her feet nor much dust collect on her piano. This year will be no excep­ tion for the talented PLU co m­ poser· in-residence. McTee, also adju nct music pro­ fessor here, literally bu rned with creative energy over the summer to complete yet a nother musical composition in time for its world premiere. She made it just under the piano wire, if you will. "I probably completed about six months work of composing in three , " she says, s m i l i n g . "It's a bout the fastest I've ever had to write . " The composition, ca lled "Frau M usica" ( Da me M usic) is for mez­ zo-soprano, chorus and orchest­ ra . It was written to celebrate the 500th a n n iversary of Martin Luth· er's bi rth and premiered i n a trio of concerts the beginning of Octob· er in Auburn, Olympia, and East· void Auditori u m , PLU . The " Frau Musica" will be yet another McTee contribution to challenge u n iversity artists. Last year the PLU Choir of the west performed the world premiere of her " Psalm 1 00," first presenting the piece on tour, then locally in Seattle and Tacoma . The "Psa lm 1 00 " was a g reat success, well received by musi· cians, scholars, and reviewers in major cities, i n c l u d i n g Seattle Times c r itic Melinda Bargree n . Bargreen's co m me nts on t h e Seattle performance were more than faint praise i ndeed : "Her (McTee's) "Psalm 1 00' is a gorgeous piece of choral writi ng, vividly dra matic and hig hly compli· cated . . . resolving i nto a conso­ nance that sounds as if the gates of heaven had opened . " M cTee's accomplishment be­ comes even more meanin gfu l when one considers that her com ­ position was played back to back with the choir's performa nce of a new work by the Polish composer Krzyszytof Pendereck i. one of the gia nts of classical music. McTee

knows Penderecki very wel l per­ sona l ly and studied composition with him while staying i n Poland i n 1 974-75. But Penderecki is just one of the major influences on McTee 's mus­ ical consciousness. Also very i m ­ portant was former PLU Choir of the West conductor and music professor Dr. Mau rice Skones. And there is current music department head David Robbins. McTee says that Robbins, a composer h imself, really got her sta rted writing mus­ ic while she was a n u ndergraduate at PLU. " I really didn't aspire to be a composer before before I came to PLU , " she says. Actually, I wanted to be a visual artist. But my work with Professor Robbins cha nged all that . " Robbins continued to encour­ age McTee as she went off to advanced study i n m usic which led to her doctorate at the Un iversity of Iowa. Beyond that he made sure her works were performed over the years by including them in the repertoire of various ensembles at PLU . Having such hearings was u ndoubtedly a help in developing the 18 or so pieces written by McTee si nce 1 973. McTee's approach to her latest composition, the "Frau Musica , " is ind icative of her very special crea­ tive process, a process which is a combination of things m usical and not musica l . Her composition involved re­ search i nto the life of Martin Luther, his love of music and some of the a rt which i nfluenced Luth­ er's time. From this came fu rther emotional coloring through close study of the Netherlands compos­ er, Josq u i n des Pres, a contem­ porary and favorite of Luther. While building her own orig inal � otes, McTee was also planning to I ncorporate the music of Josquin des Pres into her composition. This she did by melding his music and rhythms while establishing her own voice. The final part of McTee's 1 5minute-long "Frau Musica " (the last two min utes) is extracted from Josquin's "Gloria" to make a state ment li nking the art and religion of Luther's time to our own.

This complex process of idea and emotion is typical of McTee. The last thing she ever does is just sit down to a piano and co mpose "After planning, I set various goalposts for myself along the way," she says. "Sometimes I ' m influenced by a sou nd co ming from anywhere - say a cafeteria - which intrigues me. Patterns in general, too, play a great part visua l, musical , or emotional . Then there's the fun of just playing with the pitches, making a game of it. " Out of all this come the pro­ ducts of McTee 's work, which have delig hted many and will probably continue to do so, whether in choral pieces, concertos or sym-

New KPLU-FM prog ra m Format TO Featu re Jazz, Expa nded News " A m e r i c a ' s clas s i c a l m U S i c � which some call jazz," and ex panded news progra m m i ng are the predominant new sounds on KPLU-FM 88 following a major program format revision Oct. 1 . According to general manager Dr. Martin Neeb, FM 88 will offe r 56 hou rs of jazz each week, an in­ crease of 40 hours over the previ­ ous format. "The change is in keeping with the strong emphasis on fine arts at the un iversity and on National Public Rad io:' he said . The new schedule also features an approxi mate 50 percent i n ­ creas� i n news prog ra m m i n g , Neeb Indicated. "All Things Co nsidered, " a 90m i n ute National Public Radio news program, is being a i red twice daily instead of once. FM 88 will also produce a local "Puget Sou nd All Things Considered:' with local news, busi ness and arts features. "As It Happens, " a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news feature program, is being added. Ori � i nal ca mpus progra m m i ng also I ncludes " PLU i n Concert" Su nday evenings, featuring PLU faculty musicians and university ensembles. KPLU -FM also pro ­ duces a Sunday morning devo­ tional series i n conjunction with the PLU Church Relations office. J udd Doug hty, KPLU - FM net­ work relations director, has inau­ g u rated "Spectru m , " a new un­ iversity news and pu blic affa irs program . But the switch to jazz music from a predominantly classical format is the big change. It was dictated. Neeb i ndicated, by care­ ful ana lysis of listener response over the past two years. "In the Seattle-Tacoma ma rket.

the 1 6th largest radio market i n the country, there a re already two stro ng, well -established classical music statio ns. " Neeb explained. "We have a very small percentage of that audience, and the oppor­ tu nity for growth is lim ited . On the other hand. there is very little jazz programming in the market and with the exception of our st tion. there are no strong stereo sig­ nals. " Station f u n d - ra i s i ng effo rts have received the g reatest sup­ po rt from news listeners. he indi­ cated, a result that has influenced th � expa nsion of news progra m­ ming. "KPLU-FM i s now prepared to take its place as a fully com petitive presence in this 52 -station mar­ et." Neeb said . "Our equipment I S more than adeq uate. including the latest in satel lite tech nology. Our studios are adequate. our transm itter is excellent.

The state Of The University: A Year Of Progress That strengthene d Programs, Relationships On Campus, A t Home, A broa d •

C Followlng Is the state of the university address presented at the Fall Faculty Conference by President Rieke Sept. 1 . "Do You Know the Second Verse?" was the theme of the address.)

With all of the joy and anticipation that attends the opening of each school year, I welcome you to the fall semester of academ­ ic year 1 983/84 - the ninety-thi rd year of this institution, the twenty-third year of the University, and the ninth year of i ncumbency of this president. When recently I reviewed the rogue's gallery of presidential portraits that lines the south wall of the conference room in the Administration Building, and learned that. of the eleven persons there displayed, only three had served longer than the present administration, I was overcome with emotion - a speCial kind of emotion . It was one of combined wonder and gratitude: wonder at the speed and accom plishments of our years together; and gratitude - full and rich - for the genuine privilege of being able to serve in this place, at this time, and with you people! My report - an earnest and serious, but positive, report - will be delivered under the title "Do You Know the Second Verse?" For you to understand the backg round of this title, as well as its implications for today's message, I must tell you a little about my family history, and particularly about the relationship that has always existed between my brother, who is closest in age to me, and myself. Although really very fond of each other, my brother and I have always been intense rivals. Probably it is because, even though he is nine years older than I , we lived much of our early lives close together and had very different sets of talents. Finishing the University of Washington Law School in 1 949, my brother joined the law faculty there. N ine years later, after I com­ pleted medical school at the same institution, I joined the medical faculty. We were formally faculty colleagues. Our family custom was to share Thu rsday evening alternately at his and my home, and after dinner to select any current social, political. economic, or religious topic for discussion . Invariably, we would end up on opposite sides of the discussion which soon turned into a debate. Only once was that not true, and as soon as my brother discovered we were in agreement. he changed sides. You will understand the depth of feeling, then, that existed as I tell you the following true stOry about an event of approximately twenty years ago when many members of the Rieke clan - including my brother and me - were attending a Huskies football game together. Growing weary of my broth­ er's and my eternal discussions, the family had dictated that he must sit at one end of the row and I at the other. Certainly, distance would keep us Quiet, they thought. Quiet, ' perhaps, but not inactive! It was not long, as we waited for the opening strains of the Star

Spangled Banner and the beginning of the game, before I noticed my brother speaking individually to members of my family and making his way one by one down the row toward me. As he spoke with each person, I noticed a peculiar pattern. Each would smile immediately upon being accosted by my brother, say something in response, and then frown, shake his or her head, and rel uctantly hand him a dollar bill. Curiosity was consuming me, but I had not long to wait before my brother had made it all the way down the row and stood before me with a fistful of dollar bills. Smiling, he said, ''I'll bet you a dollar you can't recite the words to the national anthem. " What dolts m y family must be, I thought; who doesn't know the words to the Star Spangled Banner? "You're on," I responded, and Quickly and accurately spit out, "Oh say, can you see by the dawn's early light . . . " on to the end of .. the land of the free and the home of the brave. " "O.K . , " I said, "pay up!" I can still see his gloating grin as he responded, "Well, that's fine for a start, but the national anthem has several verses, you know. Can you recite even one of them as a second? Do you know a second verse?" I was stu nned! The second verse? What. first of all, can be said about programs over the past year? There is remarkable evidence not simply of program maintenance during 82/83, but actually of particular growth and accomplishment. Fa­ culty are to be complimented and may take justifiable gratification that because of their efforts much progress was accomplished. To cite but a few examples, among our faculty are men and women who last year won u nqualified recognition for accomplish­ ments as diverse as being a national expert on "acid rain," to being a world authority on the holocaust, to leading an archaeological dig at the Hoko River which discovered the oldest known intact West Coast Indian art, to being a consultant to an international group in Tokyo, or a visiting Fullbright scholar in the Dr. William O.

Rieke

People's Republic of China. Two of our faculty were chosen as Tacoma's Newsmak­ ers of Tomorrow. Three led the establish­ ment of a microcomputer center which now has national recognition. One served as director of the Independent Liberal Arts Colleges Abroad in Salamanca, Spain. Another led forensic students to their second succes­ sive year of national competition. Several led sports g roups - especially women swim­ mers - to previously unparalleled national recognition. And the list goes on and on. Scholarly productivity, in truth, increased significantly. As for other programmatic notes - and I worry in mentioning them that I inadvertent1y omit others of equal importance - faculty and student exchange arrangements were formalized in Taiwan as well as in the Peoples Republic of China, and also in Norway. Faculty may be gratified that more student applic­ ants to the U niversity of Washington Medical School were accepted from PLU than from any other school in the state, except UW, itself. A summer scholars program master­ fully organized by the Provost's office and strongly supported by faculty not only 'brought 50 of the very brightest high school sophomores and juniors to a three-week summer session on campus from high schools throughout western Washington, but also won an overall program evaluation from the 50 gifted students of 4.84 where 5 is perfection. M uch more could be said about many other program areas. But you may protest that this is all first verse stuff. What of the second? Can these and the many other evidences of accomplishment - in spite of a stringent budget year - be sustained? In response, three things may be.said. First, there truly exists a powerful base from which to sustain accomplishment. That base - in numerical terms - actually grew from 231 full-time equivalent faculty in 81 /82 to 245 f.t.e.'s in 82/83 . Second, there is every resolve and intent from the administration to do all that is humanly possible to provide resources in a time of tremendously tighten­ ing budgets to sustain and enhance the heart of the UniverSity's faculty and programs. And third, the "second verse" for program will in a very meaningful and large way be deter­ mined by faculty themselves as, together with administration, we labor in ever more shared ways to pool collective wisdoms in the solution of problems common to us all. I cannot leave this last item, viz., joining faculty and administration together around common problems, without mentioning the tremendous help and success that came out of the efforts of the so-called Computer Needs Study group. Faculty, administrators, and students met in May and all through the summer to study, evaluate, and recommend alternatives to solve projected hard and software needs in computer application for 1 983/84. It is no over-statement to say that the results of the close cooperation, unstint­ ing labor, open communication, and dedica­ tion to a common goal not only will save the (Cont. on /J.

U niversity many hundreds of thousands of dollars, but also opened up new program opportunities which simply had been undis­ covered. The whole process of studying and plan­ ning for computers in instruction has con­ tinued to evolve. You will shortly be notified about the restructuring of the Technology and Liberal Arts Committee, the appoint­ ment of an Information Management Plan­ ning Committee, and the establishment of an Office of Academic Computer Services, together with the appointment of a director. The second verse for programs has already begun. Perhaps the biggest news and certainly the biggest surprise was the change in student numbers in 82/83. FUll-time students de­ creased from 2,800 in fall of '81 to 2]46 in the fall of '82 . Part-time students dropped from 852 in '81 to 836 in the fall of '83 . While this drop together with the 4.6% decrease below budgeted hours of 82/83 caused serious problems, it is very important to stress that both the total number of students and the number of part-time students remained larger in the "down" year of 82/83 than any other year in the University's history save for the record year of 81 /82 when, again in an unexpected fashion, numbers rose dramatically. The importance of the persisting relatively large numbers in the year past is that they have strong positive i mplications for the year ahead. While as of this date we cannot be certain that student numbers and credit hours will be exactly as budgeted - we can say summer school of 1 983 was within budget, and the best available dat� at this moment suggest that we well may hit the fall budgeted numbers. Fewer fresh men, prob­ ably, but more transfer students will attend so that the total new student numbers should be very similar to last year's experi­ ence which was the model for this year's budget. Most important to the "second verse" about personnel and numbers is that it would take much more than anything I can presently foresee to cause another year of the budget cuts we knew in 1 982/83 . Finally, with respect to personnel, I reflect with gratitude on the quality of people who have been recruited to fill vacancies. The ability to recruit quality replacements for those who retire, become ill, or move certainly is an important indicator of the viability of the "second verse. " Relative to buildings and physical changes, there is much that needs sharing. I hope you have noticed the new piece of art work located on campus between Ramstad and . Eastvold. A beautiful statue entitled "The Sisters," it commemorates the lives of Agnes Stuen and Esther Davis whose families have long PLU histories. Regent George Davis and his wife, Mary, were major benefactors for this addition placed on campus in June. Turning to lower campus, several changes need to be noted. The sewage settli ng ponds have been relocated to the west and, without even one hint of nostalgia, Foss Pond is no more. In addition to relocation of ponds, sewage treatment procedures have been Significantly improved, and the best news of all is that by October of 1 984 all semblances of sewage treatment, including ponds, will disappear from campus, at last, as county sewers become a functional reality at PLU . As we completed the academic year last May with groundbreaking for the new sci-

ence center, so construction began in late July. It should be em phasized with gratifica­ tion that the first major academic building to be constructed since the 1 960's and the la rgest academic building in our history is now u nder construction. Final funding for the building is being aggressively pursued as approximately $3 million must yet be raised . It is apparent when one thinks of the second verse with respect to facilities that PLU should never again be without a capital drive at any time. Not only must the music and fine arts complex be constructed, but space must also be provided for many other of our schools and departments, and a third floor must soon be built on the library. When faculty and administration are approached, as they will be this fall, for a commitment ora renewal of a previous gift to the capital and endowment campaign, receive that invita­ tion as an opportunity to participate, and through your participating give the President and the Development staff a strong story to tell to outside contributors about the strength of inside support. Continued par­ ticipation at whatever level will always be very important. With respect to buildings and physical facilities, I am pleased also to be able to say that the East Campus acquired in August of last year on a five-year lease is now regularly budgeted . The East Campus has been a major asset. Finally, I note with much pleasu re the announcement made in June that a 5,500 sq. ft. , $450,000 fitness and training center has been received as a speCial gift to the University. Scheduled to be added to the north wall of Memorial Gymnasium, this fine facility will take only three to four months to construct and should be finished yet this year. The second verse for buildings and physical change has, like that for programs and personnel, already begun. Its strains certainly will drive us hard as we work to its every­ increasing beat. Fourth , and last, what about finances? A triumphant end to an extraordinarily difficult 82/83 showed the University - by external objective audit - to be $1 6,892 in the black. No creative management, no fancy book work, just hard work, tremendous coopera­ tion from all concerned, and God's guidance. I can not overstate my sense of g ratitude that what at one point looked to be $1 million of red ink turned out to be a surplus - if one may use so g rand a word - of 0.06% . The capability to manage so tightly is a credit to all. How did it happen? Three ways: 1) all members of the University responded mag­ nificently and responsibly to budget reduc­ tions, 2) Development increased its total cash intake from $2 .7 million in 1 981 /82 to $3.8 million in 82/83 -an increase of 40%, and 3l a special one-time major gift was successfully won . Three points deserve comment a s we think of 83/84 and the "second verse. " Although the year will be tight, and only fall enrollment will determine whether the % M dollars in equipment and purchases can be released from the freeze imposed last spring, budget cuts should not be a worry. Second, Develop­ ment will increase its efforts, and I thank those new members of faculty and administ­ ration who joined the Q-Club in 82/83. But it must be remembered that doubling, tripling, or even greater increases of Development­ won monies cannot substitute for income generated from credit li ours. It is essential to recruit and retain students in new and better ways; some plans for this already have been

im plemented, with more to come. Thi rd, we need to see the challenges of budget making for 84/85 and subsequent years very realistic­ ally, for we are going to be called upon to be increasingly effective and to make choices within existing resources. For 1 983/84 we will give first priority to restoring equipment. maintenance, and oth­ er non-salary items. Salary monies, which are the bulk of the budget. will be determined by the facts that our credit hour base likely will not enlarge significantly, and the rate of charge can increase only as the presently low rate of inflation increases. Rather than viewing this pessimistically, however, I be­ lieve we should and can view it as an opportunity to make those important prog­ ram choices that will allow us to build on what is strong, and trim that which is either less needed or less productive. The second verse of the financial picture has much that is positive in it. Specifically, the University has never been in a stronger cash position, being some $800,000 ahead of what we were last year! Our 83/84 budget is built to be balanced without the distress of 82/83 . Our opportunity to work together to deter­ mine the second verse will also be increased through broad participation in budget mod­ eling . And so, the "State of the University: Prog rams, Personnel, Buildings, and Fi­ nances." I don't believe I told you the outcome of my encounter twenty-some years ago with the brother who wanted to know the "second verse" to the national anthem. I 've always been a strong competitor, especially when under intense and public pressu re. Well I remember, as does he, that Saturday­ afternoon Husky football game when he stood with a fistful of dollar bills grinning at me. "Second verse?" I said. "If I produce, I get all you r money. If I don't, I'll match your fistful." Accustomed to many a previous bluff I'd pulled on him, my brother readily agreed . So, shutting my eyes, grinding my teeth, and engaging all 14 trillion neurons to search memory banks u ntouched for a decade (we didn't have computers then) I said, "On the shore dimly seen Thro ' the mists of the deep, Where the foe 's haughty host In dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, O'er the towering steep As it fitfully blows, Half conceals, half disdoses ? Now it catches the gleam Of the moming 's first beam, In full glory reflected Now shines on the stream; 'Tis the Star Spangled Banner, o long may it wave O'er the land of the free And the home of the brave!"

I won't wave any flags, my colleagues, but with you and under God, and in our shared sense of mission for Pacific Lutheran Univer­ sity, I will engage in the second verse! Thank you .

Volunteers Vital To Success Of PL U programs

By Richard E. Londgren

Volu nteerism has gone through "downs and ups" recently In the past decade or so, employment and other commitments have siphoned off many volu nteers. But now the recession has stimulated a renewal of volun­ teerism, prompted by a strong push by President Reagan. The chu rch has always benefited from such involvement. As a result. church social ser­ vices, for instance, have been notably cost­ efficient. Volu ntee rs often contribute in ways beyond time and money. Many bring special knowledge, fresh insights and valuable con­ nections as they supplement the work of paid staff persons. So they do more than just increase the quantity of effort and resources. My wife Anita and I have both experienced such synergism.

Tax Savings A Major Charitable Gift A dvantage By Edgar Larson Director of Planned Giving

Hardly a week goes by without someone telling me about some "new angle" in charitable g ivi ng . Usually it involves some tax­ saving device that could be effective for a potential donor - but only if such a potential donor is interested in tax savings. Amazingly, many people do not plan their gifts for maximum tax savings. Instead of letting Uncle Sam help with their gift. which can be done legally and which is encouraged by Congress, people overlook this possibility. For example, using appreciated securities or real property for one's gift can provide not only income tax savings, but can also offer capital gains tax savings. Or, by giving the University a paid-up insurance policy a donor is entitled to a tax deduction in the amount of the cash val ue of that policy. Another possibility for a planned gift is the gift of one's residence while retaining a life estate. For example, if someone is planning to leave PLU their residence as a bequest, that gift given during one's lifetime with a retained life estate allows for a current income tax deduction. There are numerous planned gift oppor­ tunities for people who wish to contribute to the University. Proper planning can achieve not only the satisfaction of such a gift. but can also allow for significant tax savings. If you would be interested in discussing how a planned gift can assist PLU, and provide financial advantages for you please contact:

In her years of work in prisoner rehabilita­ tion, Anita has capitalized on a variety of church and community resou rce persons ­ from craftspersons to bank presidents. She has enlisted their time, talents, money and influence on behalf of her cause. M y c a re e r i n com m u n i ca t i ons fo r Weyerhaeuser Company has helped put me in a position to provide aid and counsel to several nonprofit organizations, from the League of Women voters to the Lutheran Church in America. And we've both assisted in a few PLU projects, including fund-raising. We believe in volunteerism. One reason we su pport PLU personally and financially is because PLU perpetuates volunteerism. Ani­ ta ca n testify to that: she's received help for her prison concerns from the university and its grads. As editor of the Northwest Luthe­ ran, I frequently report about PLU service to the community and about the unselfish contributions of alums in many commu nities of our area. To sustain such a nurtu ring role, PLU itself now needs expanded volunteer support. We're charter members of the Q Club, so I want to focus on that beneficial program . In a time of inflationary and recessionary pre­ ssures, u n restricted money generate d through Q Club has helped significantly to offset PLU 's financial strain. That strain for private education is not expected to let up. Q Club contributions, consequently, will be increasingly important. So PLU needs you! First, you can volunteer by joining Q Club with a $240 annual donation . Or if you' re already in, move up to be an "Associate Fellow" with a $480 gift, or "Fellow" for $1 ,000. Next, assist with recruiting . Set a goal of getting one other person every year to follow you r path in Q Club. As with so much other volunteerism, you r generosity and influence will make a differ­ ence; in this case, a valuable and cost­ effective difference for the Q Club and for PLU . Those joining Q Club since the last issue of SCENE are: Mr. and Mrs. Gustaf C. Anderson, Todd Baxter, Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Hanson, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Larson to Associate Fellow, Mark Lester, Rev. and Mrs. John Maakestad, North Pacific

My wife and I were stationed in H i nderlie Hall to welcome new and returning students as they arrived on campus for the new academic year. It was an i nteresting time. Fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers - all were involved in the process It's no simple matter moving a student to campus. They came in cars with trailers, in va ns, in pick- up trucks a nd in campers . They got as close to the door as they coul d . There wou ld be many trips. C lothes, rugs, stereos, furniture, books a nd whatever else a person needs for a year at college were d ragged, pushed and carried to the appropriate room . Some were a rriving for their first year; others were returning for their second, third or fourth time. I was pleased to be desig nated "greeter" and not "mover. " I was impressed with the fact that, in most cases, movi ng to cam pus was a fa mily event. Occasionally a student had come by h imself - Hinderlie is a n all- male dorm. Then I met one set of parents who had come alone. They had d riven from Oregon without their son because he wanted to worship at his home ch urch one more time and say good-by to his friends. He wou ld be along later. The morn­ ing went ra pidly. I have thoug ht, since that Su nday, there is a lot of fa mily support and chu rch support for our students. It is one of the real strengths of a place l ike PLU .

Someti mes you ca n 't see the forest for the trees. That's not a very original statement, but one that became clear to me this past spring . My wife, Betty, and I joined with fou r others to sail i n a 53-foot ketch from Pu nta Arenas, Costa Rica, throug h the Panama Canal, then north to Jamaica . For nearly 30 days we lived together as a crew, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, i n good weather a nd bad. Besides the obvious experience of going throug h the Canal in a sailboat a long with a 900-foot freighter, a nchori ng i n remote harbors along the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of Panama and meeting other sailors from all over the world, one had the u nique experi­ ence of being very much alone - particular y when you d rew the 2 -4 a . m . watch. It was then that you sorted out the forest and the trees. The trip from the San Bias Islands to Jamaica was a seven-day sail. For seven days and nights we saw nothing but ocean a nd more ocean . Du ring the two-hour nig ht watches, you felt very much alone everyone below deck sleeping, the boat responding to a steady wind, the stars providing the directional indications, and the wheel serving as the mea ns to make adjust­ ments in you r cou rse. And you were alone. It was then that you sorted out many of the issues in your life. Family relationships passed through your mind . Career opportunities, seized or missed, were reviewed as if on a giant TV screen. And what were you going to do about God? It's difficult to believe that anyone who has sailed on the ocean of the world has done so without gaining a clearer understanding of God . I know I did. In the reprise of my life during a particularly lonely night, I thought of my relationship with Pacific Lutheran U niversity. For nearly 60 years I have been influenced by the institu­ tion. Beginning with my father's appoint­ ment to the Board of Trustees - now Regents - in 1 923, our living in Old Main now Harstad Hall from 1 925 -29, my g raduation from Pacific Luthera n Prep in 1 939 and a BA in 1 947 and a BED in 1 949, my father's tenure of nearly 40 years as a member of the faculty, my mother's long relationship with the institution, my life has been profoundly affected by Pacific Lutheran U niversity Wh ile not many alums have had the wonderful opportunity to be as close to the University as I have, we all can count as a unique blessing the i nfluence of a Ch ristian education. As we beg i n a new year, we need to give special emphasis to our responsibility to P L. U . The ca pita l -fu nd program, "Sharing in Strength, " and the regula r an nual fund merit our conti nued support. As you make these decisions, take a moment to reflect, maybe not from the deck of a sailboat, but from wherever you may be, a nd sepa rate the forest from the trees. Pacific Lutheran is a giant in the forest. It deserves our best effort.

Ernest and Irene Hopp, co-chairs of the Parents Club and Council since their organi­ zation i n 1 976, have resigned . The last of their th ree daughters has g raduated . President , William O. Rieke, who is also a member of the Cou ncil, praised the Hopps for their out­ sta nding leadership in i mplementing a nd expanding the Parents Club activities. AI a nd Marilyn Ha nson of Portland were elected to succeed the Hopps. Wa rren (Bud) and Betty Daheim of Tacoma were chosen to succeed the Hopps on the cou nci l . Their son Tim goes to PLU . Other new appointees include Charles (Bill) and Jean McKay of Everett succeeding Allen and Ellen Juhl of Seattle . McKay's daughter, Sandy, is a fresh man at PLU , daughter Teresa is a PLU g rad as is son Scott, who is an assistant football coach at PLU . Also new on the Council a re Darrel a nd Bernice Nichols of Spokane, whose son Dennis is a PLU sophomore. They succeed Mayo a nd Elaine Erickson of Spokane.

Past UPS 13-10 First Collegiate Grid Clash In New Tacoma Dome Thrills PL U Fans PLU 1 3 ; UPS 1 0. Lute fa ns who have been wait­ ing for such news for nine years, savor the score. Savor a lso the fact that, although the Lutes never led i n the game until the final 28 seconds, the game wasn't as close as the score might indicate. Most of the excitement during the first colleg iate footba ll game .in the sparkli n g n ew Taco ma Dome was on the Pacific Lutheran side of the field as the Lutes rolled up 369 total yards to 148 fo r the Loggers Led by 200- pound senior full­ back Jeff Rohr, who gobbled up 1 77 yards in 36 carries, PLU out­ rushed UPS 226-34. And filling in at t h e l a s t m i n ute for i nj u red placekicker Todd Rosenbach, Roh r a lso kicked the fi rst two field goals in the 58-year history of the PLU­ UPS rivalry. Still, the Lutes fou nd the goal l i n e frustratingly elusive. After driving from the opening kickoff to the Logger 14, a Kevin Skogen pass was intercepted . A penalty stopped another d rive at the UPS 24. The third time i nto Logger territory UPS' Todd DeCarteret returned an interception for a 56yard touchdown and a 7-0 UPS lead. The Logg ers' only sustai ned d rive resulted in a 32-ya rd field goal and a 10-0 lead. Skogen drove the Lutes 80 yards late in the second quarter to narrow the margin to 1 0-7 at halftime. The touchdown play was an 1 1 -ya rd Skogen pass to Randy Hamlin. In the thi rd quarter, the Lutes d rove to the UPS 22 before Rohr tied the game with a 35-yard field goal. In the fourth quarter they drove to the Logger two before turning the ball over on downs at the 5 :53 mark. It was a measure of the Lutes' confidence i n their offense that they decided to go fo r the touchdown rather than a field goal at that point. The final drive in the wan i ng mi nutes began at mid-field after a Logger punt a nd was cli maxed by Rohr's 28-yard field goal.

They simply put both UPS and Linfield on the home footbal l schedule. Explosive, big-play football is aga in the projection. Westering has 39 lettermen back fro m the 1 982 squad, which was 7-2, 1 3th in the final NAIA national poll. He'll build around 16 returning starters, nine on the defensive side of the line. Offensively, Westering will hang his hat on the backfield and the middle of the li ne.

On the Kitsap Peni nsula, bet­ ween Gig Harbor and Bremerton , the new h ig hway bypasses thE seaside commun ity of Purdy I r P i erce a nd surrounding co u nties, no one passes Pu rdy Kristy Pu rdy's star has risen a bove the All-America level . The senior distance ru nner is a legiti­ mate Olympic hopeful, in the opinion of Lute cross country a nd track coach Brad Moore. "Kristy has more than a reason ­ a b l e c h a n ce to m a ke t h e m a ra t h o n q u a l ify i n g sta ndard (2 51 . 1 6) for the 1 984 Olym pics, if she can remain injury free.

" It was about halfway th rough her freshman year that Kristy decided to train year-around as a runner, " said Moore. Purdy's accomplishments a re legend PLU's first-ever women's track All-America n and first ath lete to be a two-sport All-America n, Purdy is also the school's initial women 's national champion in any sport In May, she was cited as Woman of the Year in sports at PLU, the first junior ever honored . A conference and district cross cou ntry all-star at every post­ season meet she has entered, Purdy passed u p the 1 982 confer­ ence chase to compete at the Western Pepsi Challenge road race in Los Angeles There she placed th i rd in a field of 2000 runners.

Larson , a 1 983 PlU graduate, has sig ned a contract with the Belling­ ham ari ners of the Northwest League. In his four-yea r Lute career, La rson d rilled a school-record 1 9 ho ne runs. An All-Northwest Con­ ference pick in 1 983, he stroked seven homers and hit .305. Named co-winner of the Jack Hewins Senior Award last spri ng, Larson, a journalism major, is cur­ rently s p o r t s e d i to r of t h e Lakewood Press i n Tacoma Sig ned at a tryout camp in early September, Larson will report to the Seattle Mari ners' Tempe, Ariz , training camp next March.

have been earned as a harrier. After plaCing 30th a nationals as a freshman, she was fifth as a sop omore, fourth last fall . I n track, Purdy is the school record- hol der In the 3000, 5000, a nd 1 0,000. She has recorded 2 1 lifeti me bests and 25 national q ualifying runs i n 29 races. Winner of every conference race as a freshman and sophomore, estab­ l ishi ng records i n each outing, K r i s ty c a ptu red the n a t i o n a l 1 0,000 meter crown as a sopho­ more after a fifth place freshman finish She was 1 982 AIAW run­ nerup in the 5000. A heel stress fracture cut short her 1 983 season in mid-April "Kristy was out of action for over two months, but she appea rs to be back at full stre ngth , " stated Moore. "Her experience ill ustrates the fine line between maxi mum training and injury . " According to Moore, Pu rdy's commitment to runni ng is reflect­ ed In her study habits, sleeping pattern, d iet, a nd attitude towa rds training and competition. "Kristy studies as much as she runs (3-4 hours per day, logging upwards to 85 road miles per week) and carries a 3 . 29 g rade point as an exercise science phys­ ical education majo r . " "She gets from seven to nine hours of sleep daily, more than the average college student Kristy's diet is controlled to the extent that everyth ing she eats has a purpose Her attitude has always been to train or race at her best, without concern for p l a ce o r time." Weighing that last statement, Moore was quick to add, "Of course, with her talent, place and time will take care of itself. " Another motivating factor is Kristy's commitment to her faith . "She acknowledges that h e r abilities are God-given and she wants to nu rture her talents to the highest level as a way of g iving thanks." "Her contribution to the PLU prog ram runs deeper than the medal collection," added Moore. "While she is soft-spoken, Kristy is able to inspire others, usually by example rather than word . Tea m­ mates recognize this and have elected her captain in two spo rts " Assuming that she's completely recovered from the stress frac­ tu re, Moore's plan is to book Purdy in marathons at the close of the cross country season . "We feel that the longer dis­ tance is to her advantage, because ' she has all the attributes of a fine marathoner. Kristy is com m itted to traini ng , has an outstanding sense of pace, is efficient in run­ ning techn i q u e , a nd h a s t h e superb concentration level re­ quired in an event of nearly three hours duration. "

Although she usuallyruns longer races, Kristi Purdy won the 1, 500 meters in a dual meet with University of Puget Sound last spring. Both she and teammate Anne Jenck, left, ran a national meet qUalifying time.

Achievements Reflect Personal Goals Of New' Pierce Cou nty Official

By Judy Davis

Daisy Stallworth 76 often gives her you ng friends a copy of the book, "If you Don't Know Where You ' re Going , You'll End Up Some­ where Else." It's her way of conveying her conviction that goal-setting is an importa nt step towa rd personal achievement. Daisy believes in set­ ting goals beca use her own 'five­ year plans' have worked : - In May, she was one of 1 0 citizens in Pierce Cou nty selected as a Newsmaker of Tomorrow, a prestigious com m u n ity h o n o r bestowed b y Time Magazine, the Tacoma News Tribune, and an ad hoc, blue-ribbon committee of Tacoma notables. - That same month, she was elected president of the South Sound Women's Network, an or­ ganization whose purpose is to help women professionals and managers become more effective in their careers. - And also in May, she was chosen from among a g roup of 70 applicants to manage the Office of C o m m u n ity Development for Pierce Cou nty. "My husband encou raged me to a pply for the cou nty position, even thoug h I felt there were many obstacles to overcome," Daisy revealed . Prior to her appointment, she was employed by the economic development unit for the City of Tacoma . While working for the city, Daisy w rote federal g rant p roposals which provided substantial fund­ ing for the restoration of the Pantages Center for the Perform­ ing Arts, a nd construction funds for the Sheraton Hotel and fina n ­ cial tower now under construction in downtown Tacoma. 1 959 The Rev. LEONARD C. ERICKSEN, pastor of Central Lutheran Church, Bellingham, Wash , has received the Academy of Religious Broadcasting Annual Award of Excellence from the Washington State Religious Broad­ casti ng Commission for the Thank­ sgiving special, "A Time for Tha nksgiv­ ing - A Time for Rememberi ng" aired on ANCHOR, a half- hour religious talk show on KVOS-TV.

These a re among the major projects that are cha nging the face and image of Tacoma in what is being called Tacoma's "Renaiss­ ance . " "Whenever I see these projects, I have a g reat deal of satisfaction knowing I 've played a part i n their development, " said Daisy. It was in her hometown of Ardmore, Okla . , that Da isy began nurturing her d ream of pursuing a "non -traditional female role. " "At first, I wanted to be a writer in New York . . . but, I realized most successful writers w e re men, so I decided that goal wasn't practical , " she said wryly Inspiration for her ambitions ca me from female members of her family, many of whom were entrepreneu rs . Especially influen ­ tial was h e r m ot h e r, M a zola McKerson, whose catering service at home evolved into resta u ra nts and other businesses. Mrs. McKer­ son, the first black a n d the first woman to be elected mayor of Ardmore, was featured in the June 21 issue of " Fa m i l y C i rc l e " magazine. Park, N . C. In June he presented a paper at the Swedish Royal Academy of Science in Stockholm.

As senior account manager he will assist in installing and imple­ menting a new insurance computer system .

However, despite examples set by female members of her fam ily, Daisy succumbed to pressu res of her commu nity which d ictated women were supposed to g row up, ma rry and have children. She ma rried young a nd had three ch ildren in th ree years Her son, Marlowe, is now 25; Stephanie is 24 a nd a PLU accou nting student; and Sonyia is 24. Daisy's latent belief, "Everyone should g row a nd try to become everythi ng they have the potential to become, " led her to pu rsue a career and further her education while raising a fa mily. When her first ma rriage ended, Daisy faced the added challenge of being a single pa rent. Nonetheless, in 1 976 - after six years of part-time study, Daisy obtai ned her degree i n busi ness administration from PLU . "I use the education I obtai ned at PLU every day; it is a beautiful school with a fantastic progra m for people who need to combine school and work," she said. To her own su rprise, Daisy ex­ ceeded the goals she had set for herself in her first five-year plan As a result, she now harbors another five-year pla n . She does not share the plan with others; rather, she challenges them to "define you r own goals and objec­ tives and allow them to g u ide you r subconscious . " Da isy Stallworth's success is a reflection not only of her personal goals, but also her personal qual­ ities. She is a friendly, enthusiastic, capable p rofessional If personal satisfaction is as much a measu re of success as is professional achievement, Daisy Stallworth is doubly successful Reflecting on her role as a wife, mother, com munity leader and cou nty official, Daisy declared, ''I'm having the best time of my l ife .

Al umni TO Share a reer Knowledge With Students A new prog ra m called "ASK" (Al u m n i Shared Experience) has been developed by PLU 's Career Pla n n ing and Placement Offjce to bri ng to geth er stude nts a n d alumni for career consultation and exploration, "Alumni a re a great source of help and information to both students and each other, " said Pa m White, director of the CPPO. "A person can tell you a lot more a bout work or a specific career tha n you can ever learn from career books ," Many alumni have already come in contact with students by listing both student and professional job openings with CPPO, "That can often lead to a beneficial , mentor­ ing -type relationship, especially if it is an internship, " Wh ite added , "However, the ASK progra m will help provide a system for the same type of alumni-student rela­ tionship without the alum having to em ploy the student. " she con­ tinued , The duration a n d complexity of the ASK relatio nship is strictly up to the student and the alum involv­ ed; it cou ld be a ten-min ute i nterview, or it cou ld be a week spent togeth er on the job, White indicated ,

The Ca m p u s

Pacific Lutheran University's two A l l e nmore Scholarship winners, Debra Armstro ng a n d Pa mela Bohrer (see related story) will have a strong institutional track record in their favor when they a pply to medical school this year, Their academic reco rds, of course, spea k for themselves (both carry a 3.9 grade average) , An additional factor which should help both them and their class­ mates is the record established over the years by the PLU Division of Natural Sciences, The percentage of accepted med i c a l s c h o o l a p p l i ca t i o n s nationwide has averaged between 35 and 45 percent in recent years, Applicants from Pacific Lutheran University have been accepted at twice that rate, During the past five years, 1 1 3 PLU seniors have applied to medic­ al schools , Eighty-three, or 74 percent. have been accepted, ac­ cording to Dr. Jerrold Lerum, associate professor of biology and coordinator of the PLU Health Sciences committee. The acceptances have come from 27 different medical schools, although a plurality have been from the University of Washing­ ton , During several of the past years, on ly the U of W among Washington State colleges and universities has placed more stu ­ dents in its med school than has PLU , An even more remarkable re­ cord of dental school acceptances has been recorded during the same time period , Of 27 applica­ tions, 26, or 96 percent. have been accepted, according to Lerum . The P L U pre-medicine a n d pre­ denta l p rogra ms have had a strong reputation for many years , Between 1 960 and 1 978, 65 per-

' PLU Med Sc hool Accepta n ce Rate E nco u ra g i ng TO Pre - Med Stude nts cent of med school applications were successful; the success rate of dental school applications was 80 percent. "The med school acceptance rate has improved over the last five years in spite of the fact that we've had more applications and, particularly at the U niversity of Washington, the number of slots has not increased," Lerum point­ ed out. In addition, the U niversity of Washington accepts few out­ of-state residents, which affects some PLU a pplicants, The professor, who has headed the PLU Health Sciences commit­ tee for eight of his 10 years on the university faculty, is quick to add a cautioning note when talking ab­ out PLU's success rate. "Prospec­ tive students may believe that their acceptance into medical or dental school is practically assu red if they complete the PLU prog­ ram, " he said. "No program can live u p to those expectations. " H e added that a primary reason for the success of PLU students must be attributed to the high quality of students who enter PLU, "Debbie (Armstrong) and Pam (Bohrerl are examples, but they are not the only ones," Lerum added. "We also feel that the totality of PLU offerings, both academic and non-academic, offer students the opportunity to acquire very com­ petitive academic credentials," he continued. The existence of the Health Sciences committee is another

factor that contributes to the reputation of the PLU program. Composed of five sciences profes­ sors, the committee helps all stu­ dents interested in health sciences careers (bio-engineeri ng, dentis­ try, medicine, medical technolo­ gy, pharmacy, physical therapy and others), Committee members also prepare recommendations

Pamela Bohrer

PLU Pre-Med Students Awarded Allenmore Foundation Scholarships Pamela Bohrer of Issaquah and D e b ra Armstrong of Richland, both Pacific Lutheran University seniors, have been awarded the prestigious Allenmore Foundation Scholarship, The $5,000 stipend is awarded to college seniors planning to attend medical school. This is the sixth year that the scholarship has been awarded, but the first time there have been two awards, according to PLU health sciences coordinator Dr. Jerry Lerum. Both scholarship recipients have had exceptional and varied u nder­ g raduate careers, Last summer Bohrer studied under a fellowship at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Mas­ sach usetts. She worked on a "wave modeling" project which described the magnitude and fre­ quency of mixing events in the ocean's Interior, This year she is working on a laser spectroscopy

project with physics-engineering professor Dr, Donald Haueisen. A chemistry-physics major, she was in the top three percent of students nationwide taking the American Chemical Society's stan­ dardized organic chemistry exam. Armstrong, a biology major, has worked the past three summers at Battelle Northwest Laboratories, One of her projects was a bio­ chemistry and cellular toxicology study of effects of St. Helens ash on isolated lung cells. D u ri n g h e r u n derg rad u ate career she has been a lab techni­ cian, tutor and teaching assistant. She has also worked on campus as a custodian to help finance her education . Armstrong's g rades have in­ cluded an u nusual eight A-pluses, one of them the only one awarded by a professor in 14 years , Both Bohrer and Armstrong are ca rryi ng 3.9 grade averages

The Ca m p u s

Firms Like PLU Graduates

PLU Co m p ute r Scie nce prog ra m Rates Kudos Fro m Major U.S. Corpora tions By Jim peterson

Pacific Luthera n U n iversity's computer science major is so new that the first graduates of the program received their degrees last spring. Today the Mitre Corporation in Boston, Mass., a computer con­ sulti ng and development firm do­ ing a half billio n dollar annual business , would like PLU to be its "farm team, " that is, a contin uing source of highly qualified compu­ ter Science specialists. ACCording to Dr. Richard Spill­ man of the PLU computer science program , one of PLU's spring graduates went to work for M itre Corp. this past summer. "They were so impressed that they were ba c k h e r e i n t e r v i e w i n g i n November, " he added . "They're flying fou r of our seniors back to Boston for further interviews. " Other spri ng graduates are em­ ployed desig ning state-of-the-art om u er systems. ne i with Sperry Flight Systems of Phoenix, Az. Another is with Pacific North-

west Bell . Several a re in g raduate school . These grad uates' accomplish­ ments underscore the belief by Spillman and department cha ir­ ma n Dr. John Herzog that the PLU u ndergraduate program in com ­ puter science, as new a s i t is, "is as strong an undergraduate prog­ ra m as you ca n fi nd anywhere . " The program provides excellent background either for a profes­ Sional career or advanced study, Herzog ex lained . In addition to a comprehe sive core curricu lum, students may choose upper divi­ sion "tracks" in hardware or soft­ ware, or a general track that incorporates both . I n fact. many of PLU's upper division cou rses a re taught in g radu ate p rogra ms at ot h e r schools, Spillman pointed out. The program is supported by PLU 's VAX 1 1 /780 computing sys­ tem, available for i nteractive use at a variety of locations. In addition, the department has an Alpha micro system , a Tektronic 4054 graphics com puter, a PD P- 1 1/54, and several micro units. "The program presently re-

PLU Faculty And staff Add ew $11 5.000 Pledge T capital campaign "Few institutions ca n claim a heritage so rich in selflessness and sacrifice on behalf of the u niversi­ ty as PLU," observed President Dr. William Rieke earlier this fall. His comments came at the beginning of the fal l ca m p u s "Sharing i n Strength" ca mpaign, a second three-year pledge solicita­ tion on behalf of the university's $ 1 6 . 5 million capital fund drive. Results of the campaign a n ­ nounced Nov. 3 0 proved that the tradition continues on campus. The drive netted $1 1 5,106, ex­ ceeding the goal of $1 00,000, according to the campaign gener­ al chairperson, English professor Dr. Dennis Martin . The participation rate of 78 percent exceeded the 76 percent recorded th ree years ago, and total campus giving, including an­ nual fu nd - $295,000 - is near the $310,000 recorded three yea rs ago. Campaign leaders, i n addition to Martin, were Dr. John Herzog, Needed : Used Golf Clubs

Woods - irons - putters bags - balls Call PLU Athletic Dept 535-73 50

mathematics, faculty chair; Faye Anderson, social sciences; con­ tract staff chair; and Dr. David Olson , physical education, infor­ mation officer. The Sharing in Strength cam­ pa ign, cu rrently at $1 1 million, is fu nding the William O. Rieke Sci ­ ence Center, currently u nder con­ struction on lower cam pus. A m u s i c b u i l d i n g , Sca n d i navian Studies Center, scholarship en­ dowment and facilities u pgrading a re also included in campaign pla ns. Rieke added , "It is this kind of i nternal response that ma kes such a significant im pact on major c o r p o ra t i o n s , f o u n d a t i o n s , businesses and i ndividuals who will ultimately determine the success of our campaign effort. It indi­ cates that our own people a re overwhelmingly in support of our efforts to provide facilities that e n h a nce the q uality of PLU's academic programs." PLU director of capital cam­ paigns, Sammie Davis, said, "PLU faculty a nd staff deserve recogni­ tion for the example they have set in supporting their own institu­ tion. By their demonstration of faith a nd purpose, they have given notice to the community that PLU ca n look with confidence toward reaching its campaign goaL"

quires six or seven people teach­ i ng computer science every hour of the school day," Herzog noted. Two additional adva ntages for PLU students include the profes­ sionalism and experience of the professors and the opportunity to work with faculty members on a one-to-one basis. "Industry really likes that," Spillman said . In addition, the Systems Desig n Group, a departmental research g roup directed by Spillman, offers another rare o p port u n ity for undergradu tes. "It gets · them i nvolved in advanced resea rch projects a nd the research publica­ tion process, " he added . Experiments aimed at develop­ ment of an artificial i ntelligence system is one example of such research . Such a system would make decisions in the same ways as humans. Medical diagnoses wou ld be one applica 'on, according to Spillma n . The system could serve as a guide or focus to medical thinking accelerating the pro ess or lead­ ing to diagnostic poss i bi l ities which may not have occurred to the physician . Computer science at PLU dates back prior to 1 970 when "five or six students per semes er" were ta king a limited course in compu ­ ter language. In 1 971 a Computers and Progra mming course was offered . During the 70s several courses were added to the mathematics curriculum in computer science, and in 1 978-79 a "weak" compu­ ter science minor was added . With the major coming shortly thereaf­ ter and additional equipment and faculty at each stage, cou rse of­ ferings i ncreased rapidly and en­ rollment has boomed. Total credit hou rs fou r yea rs ago were u nder 1 ,000. The following year credit hours exceeded 2,000. Last year there were over 3,000, a nd Herzog a ntici pates 4,000 credit hou rs this year. He predict­ ed that the increase would begin to level off in the 5,000 ra nge. "Students recognize that com­ puter science is a field where dema nd for qualified graduates by business and industry will be heavy for the foreseeable future," Her­ zog said. Consequently, there will be an equivalent demand for academic p rograms. And with the demand comes keen competition among poten­ tial employers. "So when a Mitre Corporation finds a quality prog­ ra m, even at a small u niversity across the country, they'll con­ tinue to work closely with that schooL" Spillman noted . He added, "Everyone benefits - graduates, employers, and the university."

erstad TO Lead o Club Tour To Nepal And India PLU alumnus and Mount Everest conqueror Dr. Luther Jerstad will lead a PLU Q Club tou r to Nepal and India for three weeks beginning March 29, 1 984 . Dr. Jerstad, one of America's original Everest conquerors in 1 963, holds a Ph . D . in Himalayan culture and spends about half each year i n I ndia and Nepal with his i nternational travel business. According to Jerstad, the trip is a sojourn to a new and totally different world from our own, and a glimpse of a pastthat is recorded to 3000 B.C. The sub-continent is a land of more than 800 million people, diverse cultu res, religions a nd lan ­ guages. I ndia i s the largest democ­ racy in the world; Nepal is the only Hindu kingdom i n the world. In addition to major cities like Bangkok and Delhi, the tour will visit the ancient capital city of Jaipur, a former maharaja 's palace, game sanctuaries and museums. The tour group will i nclude approximately 25 people. A limited nu mber of spaces are still avail­ able, according to PLU director of development David Berntsen .

Foley, Fendler, Cowles Accept President's Medal

Th ree spoka ne Civic Leaders Honored For Excellence, service, Ch risti a n Val ues Three of Spokane's prominent leaders were honored by Pacific Lutheran University at a special dinner ceremony in Spokane Nov. 3. They were Rep . Tom Foley (05th Dist. l, retired bank executive Luther Fendler, and Allison S. Cowles, member a nd former chair of the Washington State Council for Postsecondary Education. The award, the PLU President's Medal. is presented to persons w h o h a v e " d e m o n s t r a te d strength in vocation, excellence in professional or technical services, and who exemplify C h risti a n values, " according to PLU Presi­ dent Dr. William O. Rieke. F o l e y , a m e m be r of t h e Washington State Congressional delegation for 1 9 years, began his career in politics as a member of the late Sen . Henry Jackson's In­ terior Committee staff. As a Congressman, he achieved early success on the House Interior Committee and as a House spon­ sor of the Grand Coulee Dam third powerhouse. He has also served as chair of the House Agricultural Committee and as House Majority

Whip. One of the Congress' most widely respected leaders, he is considered a leading future candi­ date for Speaker of the House. Foley was unable to accept his award personally. having just been na med by Presi d e n t R o n a l d Reagan to head a fact-finding delegation to Grenada. Foley's wife, Heather, accepted the Presi­ dent's Medal on his behalf. Fendler is a former Old National Bank senior trust officer who served in various positions at ONB for . nearly a half century. A Spokane resident for most of his life, his list of civic credits is a long one. He is a retired member of the Knife and Fork Club and former president of the Spokane Rotary Club. He is past treasurer of the Spokane Symphony and cur­ rent board member of the River­ view Terrace Retirement Center. Fendler has also chaired both the Y M CA and Salvation Army. He is a member of the PLU Q Club, and his daughter, Paula, g raduated from the u niversity in 1 962 . Cowles has served on WSCPE for . n ine . years and served as its chair-

man from 1 976-79. She is also a member of the Governor's Tem ­ porary Committee on Educational Policies, Structure and Manage­ ment and the Washington State Centennial Commissio n .

Cowles has been involved in many com munity programs re­ lated to schools, family counsel­ ing, day care and other activities .

I n observance of the 500th anniversary of the birth of Martin Luther, Pacific Lutheran University a rt faculty members Tom Torrens and David Keyes have collaborated to produce a limited edition of h a n d - c rafted p o rce l a i n a n d bronze commemorative plaques. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the plaques will be used to establish a scholarship for senior art students majoring in sculpture or cera mics. Each of the seven-inch diameter plaques in this limited edition are numbered and signed by the artists. The porcelain edition will be limited to 500; the bronze edition will be limited to 100. The bronze edition will be indi­ vidually cast by the Cire Purdu (lost wax) process, according to Tor­ rens. A special medallion quality bronze alloy containing copper, tin, zinc and silver will be utilized, and the casting will be patinaed and mounted on a hand-rubbed wooden plaque, he said. According to Keyes, the porce­ lain edition will be crafted in a traditional European bone porce­ lain formula, fired to 2200 degrees Fahrenheit to assure strength and purity of color. Price of the plaques ($250 bronze; $60 porcelain) includes packing and shipping within the c o n t i n e n t a l U n i t ed State s . Washington state residents add sales tax ($1 8.75 bronze; $4.50 porcelainl. Further information is available by contacting Torrens or Keyes c/o the PLU Department of Art, (206) 535-7573 or 535-7576.

Norway·s Princess Astrid An Honored Guest At PLU In October Princess Astrid of Norway was an honored g uest at Pacific Luthe­ ran University Oct. 26. Her visit was the latest in a succession of visits by Norwegian dignitaries over the years. Her

father, King Olav V of Norway, was on campus in 1 975. As a part of the festivities, Princess Astrid's name was in­ scribed on a campus rune stones sculpture, joining that of her fath­ er and others. The sculpture was

commissioned in commemora­ tion of her father's visit. Nearly 400 people attended a dinner in her honor at PLU the evening of the visit. During her remarks, Her High­ ness observed, "I have heard

Com m u n ity, PLU Student s Benefit From versati le East ca m pus Fa ci l ity Eighteen months ago, Franklin Pierce County School District was faced with the problem of a vacant elementary school near Pacific Lutheran UniverSity. Today, due to the creativity and foresight of district and PLU offi­ cials, Parkland has a facility with programs serving a variety of publics. And PLU has enhanced academic p rograms provid i n g p racticum experience for stu­ dents in several academic discip­ lines. The exciti ng tu rn of events is the result of PW's lease last fall of the 5 5 ,000-sQ u a re foot P a r k l a n d Elementary School, now known as PLU's East Cam pus. The building houses Pl 's Fami­ ly and Children's Cen er, Social W o r k , M a r r i a g e a n d Fa m i l y Therapy and Special Education faculties, Microcomputer Center, ExecutIve Development Progra m, C HOICE Center, and physical fit­ ness programs, plus classroom, office and storage space. A sig nificant portion of the · facility is occupied by the many­ faceted a n d m u lti- d isci p l i n a ry Family and Children's Center. Early in 1 984, portions of the building will be adapted for Center use as the result of a $1 65,000 grant from the Pierce County Office of Community Development. The Center's new services are particularly timely. Cha nges i n family organizational structures over the past two decades are having a significant impact on a broad range of social problems.

According to PLU social work professor Dr. Charles York, one­ third of the nation's children are growing up outside the traditional nuclear family structure, creating problems only beginning to be addressed from the perspective of the likely source, that is, family structure and interaction. And the Parkland community has a higher-than-average per­ centage of these non-traditional families, many of whom fall into •

low-income brackets, he i n d i ­ cated . York directs the Marriage and Family Clinic, a function of the graduate program in Marriage and Family Therapy which he also directs. The Clinic is one arm of the ' new center. It will provide counseling and networking services, em­ phasizing the interaction of family members, rather than working from the isolating perspective of individual problems and offenses. A second arm of the Center provides children's services under the leadership of special educa-

tion professor Dr. Kent Gerlach. Included are an Early Childhood Learning Center for pre-school€rs, and an after-school enrichment program for "latch-key" children. The latter, with initial fundi ng from a $7,1 50 Ben B . Cheney Foundation grant. is expected to begin in February. A third arm of the Center pro­ vides weekly mini-courses for per­ sons over 50 on a variety of self­ improvement topics. Directed by social work professor Vern Han­ son, the program is enjoying a rapidly g rowing popularity. The sa me can be said for the School of Business' M icrocom pu­ ter Center and the physical fitness prog ram directed by physical ed u ­ cation professor Gary Chase. The former offers access to tens of thousands of dollars worth of computer hardware and software, plus basic instruction, for a mod­ est fee, according to director , Scott Morgan . Chase's "Wellness Con nection" progra m for faculty, staff and school personnel promotes per­ sonal well-being and wholeness by addressing lifestyle, diet and exer­ cise habits, And physical education professor Maureen McGill Seal of­ fers daily dance classes. Even as programs are develop­ ing for specific age and interest groups, East Cam pus is also in­ tended as a place where these g roups interact with one another - the old with the young, parents with children - for the enrich­ ment of all, accordi ng to program director Dr. Robert Menzel.

PLU Professo r Develops New Ad ult Christian Education Prog ra m

Washington state's number one jazz fan, Gov John Spellman, played some of his own jazz recordings during a recent appearance on-air on behalf of KPL U-FM 8B. His extensive collection includes 3-400 cassettes and discs. Appearing with him was Charles Tomaras, newly appointed station jazz director

Former "Galloping Gourmet" Graham Kerr, left, and PLU Board of Regents chairman Rev. David WOld, joined KPLU-FM general manager Dr. Martin Neeb on­ air during this fall's station fund raiser. The two volunteers are strong advocates of the station 's National Public Radio and local news coverage.

Jazz Format Boon To KPLU·FM Fall Fund Drive An Oct. 1 switch to a jazz format by KPLU-FM 88 has proved to be a popular one based on results of a mid-November fund-raising ca m­ paign, according to station de­ velopment director Dean Zuch . The five-day drive raised over $ 30,000, an 84 percent increase over the spring '83 drive, Zuch i n d i cate d . T h e re w e re 7 7 6 pledges, a 65 percent increase. Of greatest interest to station officials, however, was a 200 per­ cent increase in pledges during the music portion of the schedule. Pledges during news and public affairs programs were up 34 per­ cent to $1 5,546. The overall strong showing was even more encouraging because of the competition from a televi­ sion sweeps week, which included such programs as "The Day After," several Kennedy docu mentary programs, and the Washington­ Washington State football game.

An education program intended to help adult Ch ristians to better understa nd complex events in their l ives and su rroundings has been developed by Pacific Luthe­ ran University religion professor Dr. Stewart Govi g . The program, called "Trilogies," was funded by a $4,970 grant from Aid Association for luthe­ rans. Eig hteen months In develop­ ment the program will be tested soon in six Northwest Lutheran c o n g r eg a t i o ns , accordi n g to Govig . The study, wh ich might supp le­ ment the widely-used Bethel and newer Search series, focuses on th ree dimensions of C hristian g rowth: the Bible, Church and Experience. The Bible, Govig said, provides authority for faith and l ife; the Church ill ustrates how other Christians have responded to life situations; and Experience tests both of the other dimen­ sions. "Each element is related to the other two," he explained. "Any of the three ca n be overemphasized if the others are neglected or om itted ." Cu lts and sects gain the i r strength from a n imbalance, Gov­ ig observed. To help clarify the study's con­ cepts, Govig has em phasized the use of graphic symbols. In this effort he was assisted by PLU g rap hics designer Pau l Porter, who developed a series of symbols based on the triangle. The symbols both rei nforce the program's con­ cepts and serve as reminders of

E RG S holars i p vita l To Mi nority Stu dents For 1 0 Yea rs Last year nearly 80 percent of all Pacific Lutheran University stu ­ dents and their fa milies entered into a partnership with the u niver­ sity to satisfy the cost of thei r education . These studl'nts have qualified for assistance on the basis of a College Scholarship Service needs analysis. ThiS past year the average " need" package offered at PLU was $3450, or 45 percent of expenses for tuition, room. and board. A fina ncial aid package consists of various scholarships, grants, loans and ca mp s employment. For some students, however, even a generous aid package does not prevent financial hardship. It is at this point that the PLU B.E.R.G. Minority Scholarshi p Program can be a vital factor in the college plans of minority students desiring to study at PLU . "The BERG prog ram is a sup­ plementary program," explained Amad 0 Tiam, PLU director of minority affairs. " It picks up where the Financial Aid Office leaves off. For many minority students, this additional assistance can make a PLU education affordable." Since 1 973 BERG has provided scholarship assistance to more than 1 50 students of color, in spite of limited funds. "The current campaign will multiply the numb­ er of students that can be assist­ ed," Tiam continued. "There is no doubt that it will help i ncrease the n u m ber of m i n ority students studying at PLU . " The BERG concept is u ncom ­ mon, if not u nique, observed Phillip W. M iner, PLU associate dean of admissions. "Few colleges and universities offer a minority scholarship program that is sup­ plementary to the financial aid program," he said. When BERG was created 10 years ago by BANTU, the PLU black student u nion, the concept in­ cluded a (8) Book F u n d , (E) Emergency Fund, (R) Restricted Minority Scholarships, and (G) Gen­ eral Minority Grant Fund. The concept has remained viable and effective, according to Tiam. The Book Fund ma kes text­ books and other reading materials available to minority students who could not otherwise afford the purchase price of required texts. T h e E m e rg en cy Fund aids minority students in meeting un­ expected financial hardshi p or un­ foreseen expenses, i nc l u d i n g medical. legal o r housing obliga­ tions or emergency travel. Funds are dispersed either as grants or repayable loans. Restricted scholarships are es­ tablished by individuals, groups,

businesses, or foundations, and are awarded to minority students who meet the criteria established by the donors. Donors and reci­ pients are encouraged to "keep in touch" with one another. General Fund monies are grant­ ed to students at the discretion of the administering comm ittee. "BERG has been a silent financial partner for many minority stu­ dents who have graduated from PLU and gone on to become educators, doctors, social work­ ers, lawyers, scientists, nurses, performing artists and other professionals," Miner observed .

New 5- Year Effort Underwa y

$300,000 Minority Endowed Schola rs hip ca m paig n At PLU Involves Vol u teers Members of the minority com­ munity will play a significant ole in a $300,000 minority scholarship ' fund drive announced recently by Pacific Lutheran University. Twenty representatives of ma­ i or eth nic groups met at PLU to form a campaign steering com­ mittee, accordi n g to Amadeo Tiam, director of minority affai rs at PLU. Members of the steering com­ mittee also represent PLU alumni, chu rc hes, social-civic organiza­ tions, education, business and the military, he indicated. The campaign is i ntended to raise a minimum of $300,000 over a five-year period, accordi ng to Luther Bekemeier, PLU vice-presi­ dent for development. All but $50,000 of the target amount will be used to establish endowed scholarships for minori­ ty students at PLU. The remainder will comprise a "ready-use" fund to assist minority students with book pu rchases and u nforeseen emergencies. Tiam explained that the new funds will be channeled into PLU's BERG Minority Scholarship Prog­ ram, founded by PLU's minority student group, BANTU. That fund has provided li mited scholarship a s sistance, book money and emergency funds for more than 1 0 years, but has not been able to keep pace with the increasing need. " This effort is vital if we are to be able to increase the nu mber of minority students at PLU," Phillip W. Miner, associate dean of admis­ sions, explained. " PLU is com mitt-

ed to continued educational sup­ port of the minority community, but to be able to carry out that commitment we need additional finanCial resources which will allow PLU to be a viable educational alternative for minority students." Particularly during the past 1 5 years a significant nu mber of minority students have graduated

from PLU and have assumed lead­ ership roles i n the community, M iner indicated . During the same time PLU has established closer relationships with a variety of community minority groups. It is these groups and i ndividuals which will play an impo rtant role in the success of the fu nd campaig n, Miner added.

Fund campaign steering Committee Involves 21 Community Leaders Twenty-one community leaders have accepted responsibilities on the Pacific Lutheran University Minority Scholarship C a m pa i g n steering comm ittee, according to PLU director of minority affairs Amadeo Tiam. Charles Stubblefield of Tacoma, most worshipful g rand master of the Pri n ce H a l l M a s o n s for Washington State, Germany and the Far East, is the honorary cha irperson . Stubblefield's son, David, is a PLU alumnus. Executive chairperson is Jim Dawson of Puyallup, an account executive. Dawson, who holds an MBA from the Harvard Graduate School of Business, is both a Red Cross and Kiwanis official. F i v e s tee r i n g c o m m i tt e e members will head sub groups representing various constituen ­ cies. They are Curtis White of Seattle, business; Darlene Peter­ son of Spanaway, education; Vic­ tor Arrisola of Tacoma, alumni; Milton Jones of Steilacoom, milit-

ary; and Rev. J. A. Bowles of Tacoma, church. White, Peters, Arrisola and Boles are PLU alumni. Gerald Burke of Tacoma is the information- public relations chair­ person , and Pau l Tanaka of Taco­ ma handles audit and statistics duties. Bu rke is a PLU alum. Other com mittee members are LYle Quasim of Puyallup; Mr. and Mrs. James Walton, Daisy Stall­ wort h , R indetta Stewart, Celia Thomas, Teresa Martinez, Shirley Cupit, Albert Simpson, Gracie Pau­ Iy, and John Quarles, all of Tacoma; and Willard Bill of seattle. Quasim, Stallworth , Stewart, Thomas, Martinez, Simpson, Pauly and Quarles are PLU alumni. Arrisola, the alumni chair, expre­ ssed excitement about the fund drive and h is desire to involve both PLU minority alumni and the Span­ ish-American community.

Unrestricted

Q

By David L. Berntsen Director Of Development

The fundamental purpose of the Q Clu � is to encourage and thank donors who give unrestricted gifts to the University's Annual Fund. In 1 972 when we started the Q Club, the fellowship, the annual banquet a nd the receptions which the group hosted were designed to encourage those who made unrestricted g ifts. . This is important because while PLU also needs various kinds of restricted gifts, �hose gifts provide natural feedback and satisfac­ tion to the donor who may get to kno� � he scholarship recipient or see the bUilding which is being funded. How much of a difference do Q Club gifts make in the lives of students at PLU? In h undreds of cases those gifts provide THE difference. . Maintaining quality programs, while a� �he same time attempting to keep tUition charges at a reasonable level, is almost impossible without help. Fortunately, for PLU and its students, that help has been present through the generous support of Q Club members. . Each year u nrestricted Q Club gifts pr<?� lde scholarships and subsidize the cost of tUition. For many students and their famili�s, th�t support makes a crucial diffe�ence In their ability to finance a PLU education . During the last fiscal year over 1 ,1 50 Q Club members contributed nearly $500,000 to the University. In order to maintain and increase that I �vel of support several new emphases are being made: • The Q Club directors voted to esta bl'IS h special church and business divisions of the Q Club to help us target activities to those constituencies. • A new level of giving at $2.400 a year . (called Senior fellow) was created to encourage increased support from Q Club Fellows. • We have begu n emphasizing volu nteer recruitment goals by geog raphic area (states, cities, regions). . This last area holds the greatest promise for increased volunteer involvement and many of you can help us make it happen. For example: when the Q Club started twelve years ago, a banquet celebration was held when we reached 1 00 Q Club members and Fellows. Now Q Club members in Eastern Washington and Oregon are enthus�d abo �t reaching 1 00 in their area and having their own banquet for Spokane and Portland when the 1 00 goal is realized. (There are presently about 70 Q Club members in each a rea). Within each region, cities and towns can enjoy friendly competition and growth . For example, the small town of Wilbljr has 7 Q Club Fellows and members, Walla Walla 6, Pullman has 4, Wenatchee 3 and s�okane 1 8. At the state level Colorado moved In one year from having 3 to the present level of 1 2 thanks to Harry Wicks and others. . You can help in this very important w�rk In ways you may not realize. If you would like to help, simply call David Berntsen , (206) 5357428 (office) 845-191 5 (home), or John Aakre 535-7439. We can tell you how many other Q Club members are in your area now and share some ideas with you on increasing that t�tal.

Charitable Giving Can Benefit Donors ' Estates By Edgar Larson Director Of Planned Giving

On October 22, the Heritage Society held its third annual appreciation dinner for memb­ ers of that organization. James Feek, a PLU alum and prominent financial planning ex­ pert in the Northwest. sPok� to tho.s� who attended on the topic "Chantable GIving as an Estate Planning Partner." His discussion has prompted me to make a few comments along those same lines. Usually when people think of giving : even planned giving, they imagine everything as outgo - as a depletion of what they have earned or accumulated . However, there are times when a charitable gift can be made with little or no loss to an estate. Proper planning is critical to achieving this goal. Another unique concept can allow an individual to make a significant gift t� a charity like PLU while at the same time accumulating a retirement fund as well. . Sometimes, in a larger estate, there IS a desire to pass assets to surviving heirs. 'However, a substantial estate tax bite ca � ruin such plans. Here again there is a chantable giving technique which can assist the thoughtful donor. . Perhaps you have an estate planning question - providing for retirement. or how to make the best use of a highly-apprecia�ed asset without having to worry about capital gain taxes. Maybe your problem is wi�h passing on accumulated wealth to heirs without a horrendous estate tax, or you have a desire to make a significant gift to PLU � nd would like to do it in the most economical manner. We would like to assist you . Together with you r financial advisors you can achieve some of these desired goals by the use of planned giving techniques.

Alu m Rolls Dou ble; Su pport U p Ten Fold In Ten Years By Ron Coltom Director, Alumni Association

Ten years fly by in a hurry. In 1 974 Ric �ard Nixon resigned as President of the United States after Watergate and Patty Hearst went into hiding . On campus Eugene Wiegman served his last year as PLU president. the Lute football team under third-year coach Frosty Westering completed their best season since 1 941 and I began serving as director of the Alum'ni Association. In many ways it seems like only yesterday - or at least last year but a lot has happened in those ten years. PLU's full-time enrollment was under 2,500 and today is over 2,700. And total graduates since 1 973 have gone from 8,375 to 1 6,300. This means that 49% of our g raduates have g raduated in the past ten years. It is somewhat overwhelming to have so many "young " alumni, but the vitality a d d s strength to the entire alumni program and the U niversity. One of the best ways to evaluate strength is by looking at what alumni have done financially. Annual Fund giving. prior to th.e 1 0-year period in 1 973 was $48.462 and thiS past year was nearly five times that at $238 566. Last year an additional nearly % m illi�n dollars ($249,301 ) was given to "Shar­ i ng in Strength. " There was �o additional giving ten years ago so alum � 1 actually are giving at a rate in excess of 10 times that of a decade ago . The exciting thing is that the percentage of donors has gone from eight percent to over 21 percent. This is particularly gratifying when you consider that nearly � alf of our alums were added to our roster dunng this time period. One would think our percentage would be lower becaus� our alums are young, still getting established, paying off school debts, etc.; but th� heartening thing is that they have done their share and enabled an overall percentage increase in excess of 1 3 percent. . Of course there is more to an alumn.I association than iust what they are giving financially to their alma mater. Each year we receive more and more sons and daughters of alums as entering students, and this will continue to increase as the large classes of the 60's and 70's have students of college age. I see an ever increasing involvement of alumni at University events both locally and throughout the country. And as the number of alumni swell, I continue to hear of all ofthe tremendous and worthy contributions alum­ ni are making to their churches, com­ munities, country, and, much more so recently - i nternationally. . I feel proud to have had a small part In some of these exciting things to which all of you have contributed. I think you will agree that - we've come a long way.

Game !

Lutes Fall 56 Seconds Short Of NAJA Crown; North western Prevails 25-21

By Jim K1tt1ISby

With a shaky start and a Shakey finish, Pacific Lutheran clai med the runnerup po ition in the NAIA Division II national football play­ offs The Lutes, 9-3, making their fourth playoff appearance in the last five years, fell to Northwestern College (Iowa) 25-21 in the De­ cember 10 title game, played before a record crowd of 8,357 in the Tacoma Dome. NAIA's championship contest carried the Shakey's Pizza Bowl ban ner, Fred Muenscher, and his wife, Esther, who operate a chain of fifteen Shakey's establishments in Western Washington, stepped forward in late November and guara nteed payment of both rent and service fees at the 1 9, 1 06-seat facility. Muenscher, a Bellingham resident, is a 1 955 graduate and a former Lute ru nning back. Senior fullback Jeff Rohr rushed for over 100 yards in each of the playoff games, established five school records during the season, and was a unanimous choice on the NAIA All-America first team. Todd Davis, a senior center, was also cited on the A l l -America squad. Junior safety Don Coltom was a second team pick, while junior guard Bruce Larson and

sophomore defensive tackle Tim Shannon earned honorable men­ tion recognition . PLU led Northwestern 2 1 - 1 2 early in the third quarter, but could not contain the Red Raiders' wu nderkind q u arterbac k, Lee McKi nstrey . The two -year AII­ American th rew for 261 ya rds a nd rushed for two TOs, the last with 54 seconds remainin g. Lu te strong safety Tom Hayes was cited as the champion ship g a me's outstan d ing defensive player. Hayes was in on twelve tackles, including a quarterback sack, intercepted two passes , blocked a pat attempt, and tipped a pass to a teammate . In mid-season, PLU did not have all the makings of a national title contender. On October 1 9, the Lutes were ranked 1 6th in the NAIA poll and sported a modest 3-2 record . Led offensively by Rohr and senior quarterback Kevin Skogen, PLU won six straight from that point, i ncluding a 35-3 decision over Baker in the quarterfina ls and 1 6- 1 3 victory over Westminster in the semifina ls. Rohr established records for career touchdowns (33), career points (204), season rush i n g (1 226), career rushing attempts (583), and career rushing yardage (2800).

' Lutes ' - Descri ptive , Orig i na l , Trad itiona l , And NOW, Officia l By Earl Luebker Tacoma News Tribune

Maybe it came to them because they finally realized that it was too big to fight. Maybe it came to them because not too many ath­ letic supply companies are making shining armor these days. Whatever the reason, it's good that the Pacific Lutheran Universi­ ty hierarchy has decided that "lutes" is a fitting and proper name for PlU's athletic teams. " G ladiators" a nd " K n ig hts" were nothing more than hum­ drum monickers when everyone with any sense of feeling really knew that PlU teams were the " lutes," no matter what they might have been called by a non­ vocal minority. So the a n nou ncement that: "lutes" was officia l , that the Knig hts had been dehorsed and slain, came as good news to those in the realistic world. A lute is a lute is a lute. He or s h e is not a G l ad iator o r a Gladiatoress. He or she is not a Knight or a Knig htess. He or she is a lute, and that is the way it should be.

It might be a little difficult for some to take. There still are those who feel that "lute'" does not show the proper respect for the lutheran Church. They should realize, however, that "lute" is a term of endearment, an affec­ tionate term, one in which no disrespect is intended. The action was taken upon the recommendation of the PlU coaching staff. "I enthUSiastically concur that Knights be dropped in favor of lutes, which will now be our sole sports designation," Dr. William Rieke, PLU president, said. Dr. Martin Neeb, executive di­ rector of communications, said "Because lutes has been in vogue for decades on this campus, the ad hoc committee on PlU identifi­ cation felt that Knig hts should be put to rest permanently. " Dr. David Olson, PlU athletic director, said "lutes is both de­ scriptive and orig inal. Traditionally, being a lute is, and the achieve­ ment of the lutes are, distinctive. We are the lutes. " Then there's the Rev. Milt Nes­ vig, Mr. PlU himself. Nesvig, pre­ sently the university archivist and vice president emeritus, came to

PlU as a student in the early 1 9305 and he is almost as much a part of the school as any building on the campus. "We have been affectionately known as the lutes for at least 40 years," Nesvig said. He feels it is very much a part of campus tradition and that it's time to accept the fact that PlU teams will always be the lutes. There might be other names, but they still are the lutes. The term "lutes" came into vogue and was used by Dave James, News Tribune sports wri­ ter, in the late 1 930s and early 1 9405 when he was writing about those glory years of Coach Cliff Olson - the Marv Tommervik­ Marv Harshman era. The PlU ( PlC) tea ms were known as the Gladiators back in those days, and Gladiators just did not fit into headlines. lutes did, and James, being the perceptive fellow he is, recognized the fact. Then early in the 1 960s, the Gladiators became the Knights, at about the time the college be­ came a university. It was shorter for headline purposes, but it never quite caught on. The Knights were still the lutes in the minds of almost everyone. While some might have wished

it, the lutes would not die. They lived on - and on - and on. J u st to show how people thought of the lutes, the PlU athletic booster club was dubbed the lute Club in the days of the Knights. The su pport of the n a m e change came from more than just the PlU hierarchy and the athletic department, it also drew the ap­ proval of the student body. Rick Brauen, student body pre­ sident, said, "Since we're not locked into a bird or animal figure like most schools, we have the opportunity to define what we want the lute image to be. " Coming up with distinctive nick­ names is a tough chore. PlU has one which is unique, right up there with the Amherst lord Jeffs, the Tufts Jumbos, the Centenary Gentlemen, the Scottsdale Junior C o l l e g e A rt i c h o k e s a n d the O rofi n o ( I d a ho) H i g h S c h o o l Maniacs. Not too many lutes are kicking around this country. It's PlU's own, not like Tigers, Eagles, lions. Now the next chore for the PlU coaches is to recruit some athletes names Fisk - lutefisks.

11 sports Plans Multi-Purpose Offense

. Ha roldson Begins First Season As Lute Basketba ll Mentor Ru mor has it that the Longacres crowd is frequenting Olson Au­ ditorium in the wi nter months. The lure must be race horse basketball. "We want to build a multiple purpose offense, em phasizing the open floor game, " said first-year PLU hoop coach Bruce Haroldson. Haroldson , who has operated in the fast lane of college basketball for the past 1 6 years, takes over a program thinned by seven gradu­ ation losses. The 1 958 Augustana College (South Dakota) g raduate served as recruiting coordinator and umb­ er one assistant to Ned Wulk at Arizona State from 1 967 to 1 974. Haroldson went on to win three conference titles in four seasons as head honcho at Mesa College (Colorado). He spent the last five a n n u ms at Montana State. In Bozeman, he was the first MSU coach in 30 yea rs to post th ree straight winning seasons. PLU, 1 2- 1 4 in 1 982-83, tied for third in Northwest Conference play with a 7-5 mark. The Lutes, who will play St. Martin's Dec. 1 8 in the Tacoma Dome, part of a triple-header underwritten by the Pacific Coca­ Cola Bottling Company, have the most experience at guard. ''We' re really getti ng good lead­ ership from seniors Ed Boyce and Mark Falk," said Haroldson . Boyce, 6-3, was averaging 1 2 . 1 points per game when felled by a knee injury in game seven last year. Falk, 6-1 , who replaced him in the lineup, went on to lead PLU in scoring with 1 2 . 1 stats. Tacoma C o m m u n ity College transfers Sam Tuttle, 6-0, and Paco Ca rtledge, 6-0, both ju niors, fit prominently in Haroldson's back­ court pla ns. Ditto sophomore Bob H utt, 6-2, who has big -ti me quick­ ness, according to the new coach. Nearer the hoop, 6-9 junior James Cederholm and 6-4 junior Gary Koessler are returning letter­ men . Koessler was PLU's number two rebounder last year. Junior 1 9 8 3 - 8 4 PLU BAS KETBALL 88 63 48 56 111 D E C . 17

No problem with Pasteurella pestis, but there is a shortage of shelf space for 38 AII­ America plaques. That's the hardware collection of eight Lute swimmers. Five Lady Lutes produced 34 of the awards en route to a second place finish at the 1 983 NAIA championship meet in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. For PLU, defending WCIC and district cham pion, each of the five retu rning A l l -A merica women earned at least six medals and pocketed one or more national championship awards. Defending national champion i n the 2 00 individual medley, senior Elizabeth Green is a three-year AII­ America n . She has shelved ten AII­ America scrolls and has posted fou rteen straight victories in WCIC races. Sophomore Kerri Butcher had one of the ten school-record swims in 1 983, winning the nation ­ al 100 butterfly. Two-ti me A l l American Barbara Hefte, a junior, senior Kristy Sode r m a n , a n d sophomore Kirsten Olson are the other elite tankers. PLU will defend national wo­ men's titles in three relays, the 200 free, 400 free, and 800 free. In the men's camp, PLU will go after a fou rth straight Northwest Conference title. The Lutes, ninth at NAIA nationals, expect to show improvement in the backstroke and sprint freestyle this year. Three All-Americans dot the men's roster. 5en iorTim Daheim, a two-time claimant, has also won seven Northwest Conference gold medals in mid-distance and dis­ tance events. Daheim was sixth in the 1 650 at nationals in 1 983. Butterfly specialist Mark Olson, a senior, joined the national elite ranks in 1 981 .

Pacific Lutheran women proved that pollsters can be wrong too. That's pollsters can be wrong two. The Lady Lutes, ranked sixth in the final regular season NAIA cross country poll, finished fourth at the national meet in Kenosha, Wisc. That's a step up for Brad Moore's harriers, who were fifth last year on the same course. P L U ' s u n ranked men's team made its first-ever appearance at nationals and placed 1 3th in a field of 37 schools. Senior Kristy Purdy, who was 1 3th , a n d s o p h o m o re D a n a Stamper, 1 7th, earned All-America citations. Purdy has now collected six All-America scrolls. Stamper won the individual title as PLU rom ped to a third straight WCIC championship. The Lady Lutes were second at regionals. Sophomore John Armenti n o was PLU's top male finisher at nationals, placing 48th . He was also the Paclute leader, seventh overall, in PLU's third place show­ ing at regionals. Sophomore Paul Ba rton was eighth at the No rth­ west Conference test, where the Lutes were third as a tea m.

Wrestlers Pla n TO I m prove Dual Meet Mark Aestheticians have yet to en ­ dorse wrestling as an artform . Too bad they can 't embrace it. PLU's Dan Hensley could lay claim to a state-of-the art program, i.e., he'd have some of the better a rt in the state. Hensley, i n his seventh season at PLU, will suit four former state prep champions, three other state placers, and a collegiate Ali-Ameri ­ can in an attempt to better a 2-1 1 dual meet record and fou rth place 1 983 NWC finish.

HOOP Season Lady Lute hoopsters are into speed, yet no one is summoning a counselor to give a chemi�1 de­ pendency lecture. "With good team speed, we hope to fast-break more this sea­ son," said Kathy Hemion. "The qu ickness should also result in defensive improvement." The ninth-year coach would like to better the 1 982-83 printout, which had a 1 5- 1 7 reading, 6-4 digits (second place) in the WCIC. PLU's hoop fortunes will hinge heavily on the performance of freshmen and sophomores, who have been outfitted in nine of eleven uniforms.

PLU Ski Sq uad Prepare For Win ter Season On the subject of ski, he and she will have a different specialty. Second -year PLU slat coach Rick Kapala lost his entire men 's Nordic squad . However, cross-country remains the strength of the wo­ men 's prog ram . The Lady Lutes, second i n the northern division of the North­ west Collegiate Ski Conference last year, will build around sophomore Paula Brown, who won three of her four diVisional Nordic races . Lorri Freiday and Fra nces Terry are accomplished cross-cou ntry ca m­ paigners. Krista Schwalbe, Sue Sarich, and Jean Anderes are PLU's Alpine hopefuls. For PLU men, third in the 1 983 northern division race, Ron Nishi. Arne Michalson, and Joe lind­ strom will be backed up in Alpine by newcomers Robert Fix and William Du berdorf. Norwegian Gunnar Serre heads the Nordic contingent.

Leadership Of PLU Minority Alumni A Benefit To Many Communities Today they serve in leadership positions throughout the Tacoma community and far beyond. They are the more than 700 minority alumni of Pacific Lutheran Univer­ sity. Any attem pt to list these leaders w i l l u nfortu nately omTt many more than it includes. Still, one can point to a few. In the Tacoma School District, for example, are assistant superin­ tendents Willie Stewart and Re­ ndetta Stewart. Lyle Quasim is deputy director of the Washing­ ton State I nstitutional Mental Health Program; his wife is a cu rrent PLU undergraduate in busi ness. Daisy Stallworth heads Pierce County's Office of Com­ m unity Development. Cynthia Wilson, PLU's first black graduate to atte n d m e d i c a l school. i s now with Humana Hos­ pital in Tacoma . Her sister, Shirley, recently passed the bar after g raduati n g f r o m W i l l a m ette School of Law. Shirley Aiken currently teaches in PLU's SChool of Nursing. And there are many more hundreds of success stories since James A. Rasberry became PLU's first black student in the mid- '40s. He graduated in 1 949. The senior black alum on cur­ rent record is William Muse, a 1 950 graduate. Muse is a retired Tacoma Community College biology pro­ fessor. There was a large influx of black students at PLU in the early '60s, three of whom a re i ncluded

a m ong a l l -time Lute ath letic greats. They are Wendell Brown, who still holds three track records set in 1 965; Les Rucker, an NAIA AII­ American football defensive back and also long-jump record holder; and Tony Lister, PLU's passing and total offense leader in 1 965-66. The next surge of black enroll­ ment may be partly attributed to two consecutive Teacher Corps programs in the late '60s and early 70s. This program resulted in many blacks from all over the country, particularly the South, enrolling at PLU to complete mas­ ter's degree programs in educa­ tion . The program also involved as team leaders a number of local educators who have achieved g re­ ater community prominence in years since. They include Dr. De­ l o ro s Silas, a Tacoma P ublic Schools administrator and local president of the NAACP; Ruth Jeffries, also a TPS administrator and a two-term member of the PLU Board of Regents; and Drs. Connie Lassiter and Ruby Harris, both l ocal school principals . Another local administrator, Char­ l otte Carr, was o n e of the g raduates of the program. The academic profile of black students has strengthened annu­ ally. Since 1 972 a significant numb­ er of National Merit Achievement Scholars (a black competition) and College Board Outstanding Minori­ ty Commu nity College Graduate Program participants have enroll­ ed at PLU . These students are i n the top 1 0 percent of black high school and com m u n ity college g raduates nationwide. The three Tacoma winners of , the National Urban League/Liggett G roup Essay Contest were all af­ filiated with PLU. Janice Hayes and Myra Quarles, 1 981 -82 winners, are respectively, a 1 983 grad and current junior. Last year's winner, Diane Sanders, was a transfer to PLU from TCC . Black enrollment a t PLU peaked at 1 39 in 1 973; since that time the average has been in the high 80s or low 90s. An active effort to increase these numbers and to offer the option of a PLU educa­ tion to a larger number of minori­ ty students is one of the goals of the current endowed minority scholarship campaign.

Former PLU Rhodes Scholar Retains British Ties As He Pursues Law Career In Seattle By Judy Davis

Although it has been a decade since he was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford Unive rsity i n E n g l a n d , Bruce Bjerke 7 2 still considers himself a n u n a ba s hed "Ang ­ lophile." " I thoroughly enjoy rea d i ng books about B ritain, listening to English choral music, especially boys' choirs, a nd traveling to Eng­ land whenever the opportu nity arises , " said Bjerke, the only PLU student ever to be chosen a Rhodes Schola r. Just last month, Bjerke visited a friend in London whom he had met while studyi ng with 300 other students at Hertford College at Oxford. Hertford is one of 30 colleges which comprise the un­ iversity, then an all - male bastion wh ich is now coed. In 1 972, Bjerke was one of 32 students from u niversities around the U nited States chosen to re­ ceive the prestigious academic honor after a g rueling round of essays and i terview5 which were part of the selection process. '" remember distinctly the feel ­ i ng of being the only student present while being interviewed by six members of the va rious screening com mittees, " recalled the PLU historv major. Bjerke was nominated from PLU on the basis of his academic record , campus activities a nd re-

relationship with clients over the years, " he said. In recalling his experiences as a Rhodes Scholar, Bjerke said the tutorial nature of the program was especially rewarding . "Working on a one-to-one basis with the caliber of teacher I met at Oxford was a tremendous way to learn ," he observed . While at Oxford, Bjerke was assigned to a tutor within Hertford College and studied with seven other tutors representing diSCi p­ li nes withi n the university. Bjerke also fou nd it rewardi ng to develop friendships with students from all over the world, although most of . his fellow students were British . He still stays in touch with some of his British friends. At the end of the academic terms and in the su mmer, Bjerke traveled in the British Isles and on the continent. While he was at Oxford, he and his wife, the form­ er Jill Farver, were married . She is a 1 971 PLU g raduate. Bjerke's experience as a Rhodes Scholar has had a n impact on h is p rofessional life. "The i ntellectual rigor and discipline I developed at Oxford continues to be benefi­ cial , " he reflected . I n terms of knowledge, he be­ lieves the broader perspective he gained is most important - to continually be aware of how law has been used and abused, and to remember it is not only rules and techniq ues, it is a dispute resolu­ tion process.

Even as we review the remarkably swift passage and productive accomplish ments of the past year. we turn our energies to the decade ahead. That period will include celebration of our centennial in 1990-91 . The shape of the institution at that pinnacle of our history will be determined by plans that are set in motion today. As investors and concerned friends of Pacific Lutheran University. you have a special interest in its future . A constantly updated and adjusted Five-Year Plan has served as a guideline for growth over the years Comprehensive in scope. the Plan contains both changing and constant factors For example. changes will occur in the physical assets of the campus with the addition of funded academic facilities; enroll ments are expected to increase by about 2.5-3% in the next five years; further curricular programs will be offered in special areas. notably engineering and computer science; composition of our student body will show greater numbers of adult students . Elements which will remain will be the liberal arts core of the academic curriculum. the im portance of the residential campus experience for the traditional students. the commitment to excellence not onl,y in academics but in services and surroundings Undergirding the dynamics of progress will be the historical mission of the institution: to provide a high quality education to all who choose to come. withi n an environment which nourishes exploration and practice of the Christian faith. Throughout all the years of its existence. the U niversity has been sustained by those who have affirmed its mission and its contribution to society That concern and support has never been more important than it is now. nor has it ever been more generous. Vice President for Development Luther Bekemeier has prepared a report and roster of supporters i n the following pages It is always gratifying to note the number of new friends. but also to see the continuing loyalty of those individuals. congregations. corporations or foundations who year after year ,invest in Pacific Lutheran University .With warm gratitude to all who have supported us with financial gifts. With encouragement. and with good will. I enthUSiastically invite you to a continuing partnership in this decade of excellence . . Sincerely. William O. Rieke. M . D .

At this milestone in the history of Pacific Lutheran University, a bold challenge for a Decade of Excellence sta nds before us . The University is rapidly approaching the fulfillment of a century of ever-increasing academic excellence. From humble beginnings in 1890 under the visionary leadership of Bjug Harstad, the University has developed into one of the finest independent schools in the Pacific NorthWest and, in the opinion of many, one of the outstanding academic institutions in the ' nation. With the century mark in view, it is appropriate that the University embark on a development effort that will emphasize not only the significant strides that have occurred in support of the school, but also take advantage of the tremendous potential that exists among its alumni and friends, churches, businesses, and foundations. While these support constituencies of the university have been very generous in the past. these friends and constituencies now have a vision for PlU that will offer potential financial support of a magnitude perhaps unimagined. With this in m ind, during the remaining years leading up to PlU's 1 00th anniversary, it seems fitting that the University launch a campaign that stresses the "countdown" of development leading up to that century mark. It seems obvious that we should include the decade preceding the 100th anniversary in proposing such a "countdown" campaign, because it is during this ten-year period that important phsyical growth las well as outstanding academic achievement) has and will continue to take place on the campus. The Names Fitness Center, dedicated in opening convocation this fall, and the Willia m O. Rieke SCience Center, scheduled to be dedicated on January 27, 1 985, have become realities. Certainly, as God's sun continues to shine on PLU the next five years, we'll see the growth and completion of several long hoped for facilities and numerous other additions and alterations to the University's campus. During the years from 1 980/84, development efforts have resulted in gifts to the University totaling $20,894,000. It is anticipated that between 1 984 and 1 990, another $30 million will be realized in gifts and grants. A bold challenge for a Decade of Excellence stands before us. We will establish a goal of $50 million. With $20 million already received, we are well on our way toward achievement. Last fiscal year, the gifts to PLU recorded a 40 percent increase over the year before. This year, the gifts exceeded even that with a total of $3,81 5,924. In the following pages, we, with grateful thanks, record the names of our loyal alumni and faithful friends together with congreta­ tions, corporations, and foundations that shared in the strength that is Pacific lutheran University.
