' PLU Welcomes Two Grad Students From Peoples' Republic Of China

eeing 50 By Jim Peterson

Smiling broadly, their eyes shi n­ Ing and their gestures reflecting their enthusiasm, PLU's first two exchange students from the Peo-

China Experts Head Spring Tour Of PRC Pacific Lutheran University Chi­ na experts Dr. Greg Guldin and his wife, Mu n-Jong Fung, will lead a study tour of the People's Republ ­ ic of China May 24-J une 1 2 . The three-week tou r , spon­ sored by the Washington Com­ mission for the Humanities, will focus on daily life in China. "It will Incl u de visits to reti r e m e n t homes, street markets, neighbor­ hood and day-care centers and schools," Guldin explained. "It will also stress the enduring cultural heritage in China, the great sites of both antiquity and the 20th cen­ tury. " The itinerary begins in the sub­ tropic southwest province of Yun­ nan, continues to the site of the underground terra cotta army in Xi'an in North China, crosses the Gobi Desert to get to Inner Mon­ golia, and then moves on to the more familiar u rban centers of Peking, Canton and Hong Kong. Guldin and Fung offer an un­ common combination of exper­ tise. Guldin, the chair of the PLU Global Studies Program and an a nt h r o po l ogy professo r, has studied and toured i n China many times. He is an expert on China's social and political history, past and present. Fung specializes in Chinese arts, religion and family life, as well as pre-modern history. Her family conti hues to reside in Hong Kong and the PRC. Cost of the tour is $3,240. Further information is available from WCH in Olympia, Wash., (206) 866-651 0, or Guldin at PLU, 5357661 .

elcom ! pies' Republic of China describe their first weeks in the Un ited states. "Everyone has been so kind to us; we feel so welcome'" ex­ claimed Yongtao Zheng, a 24year-old graduate student in busi­ ness administration who teaches statistics in the management de­ partment at Zhongshan U n iversity in Guang Zhou (Cantonl. "PLU is a very good environ­ ment," agreed Yuedong Wang, 28, a g raduate student in compu­ ter science . "It's much better than we had expected. " He is a compu­ ter science p rofe s s o r a t Zhongshan. Zheng and Wang are the first two Chinese to come to PLU under terms of an exchange agreement with Zhongshan signed in Feb­ ruary '83 . For six months prior to their trip, the two teachers studied American language and culture with America n teachers from C a l ifornia. "They told us that Americans don't pay much atten­ tion to each other, that they are concerned about themselves, " Wang continued . "But that hasn't been our experience here." A 1 977 g raduate of Zhongshan, Wang has been married for two years a n d has a one-year-old daug hter. Much of his schooling came during the years of the Cultural Revolution . "I missed some knowledge, " he said with a wry gri n . Wang explained that changes have been vast in the past five or six years. Academic abilities are emphasized. There is more and tougher testing. Beyond the in­ crease in university students which has nearly doubled - more ed u c a t i o n i s r e a c h i n g t h e populace through branch colleges and television extension courses. Wang and Zheng represent the two academic fields that are get­ ting by far the most emphasis. Zheng explained, "Our economy must be developed quickly. To do that, we need good economic policy. Even though our economic structures are different, we know we can learn to improve our socialist system by studying and


selectively employing some of the mothods used in capitalist coun­ tries. " "At the same time, we must . understand and use technology," Wang added . Both are enthusiastic about the American classroom envi r o n ­ ment, where questions are wel­ comed . Teaching is more formal in China, and to ask questions during class is often interpreted as disre­ spect for the teacher. They are also impressed by the industriousness and efficiency of American workers generally. The improved relationship bet­ ween the PRC and USA is genuine

Yongtao lheng

and a benefit to the people of both cou ntries, they believe . "There was great misunderstand­ ing," Zheng observed, which in their personal experiences con­ tinued until they had actually experienced American life. "The most exchanges we can have, the better we will under­ stand each other," he added . Not only do they show little reservation about dialog ue with Americans, they are anxious to share, and have already spoken before student groups on cam­ pus. They expect to continue their studies at PLU through Aug ust 1 985 .

Chinese Prof's April Visit Offi cially Inaugurates PLu-zhongshan Exchange Prof. L i Yuesheng, a mathemat­ ics professor from Zhongshan Un­ iversity in the Peoples' Republic of China, will visit Pacific Lutheran Uhiversity in April to officially inau­ gurate the Zhongshan-PLU stu­ dent-faculty exchange agreement formalized a year ago. Li will be the guest of honor at a reception on campus Tuesday, April 3, hosted by PLU President William O. Rieke. The reception will be held in the PLU University Center at 4 p.m. On Wednesday, April 4, Li will speak at a forum for Puget Sound area mathematicians. The 4 p.m. session in the Math Building is hosted by the PLU mathematics department. The e<change program bet­ ween PLU and the Guang Zhou (Canton) university is the topic of a forum with Li Thursday, AprilS, at 3 p.m. in the University Center. Dr. Greg Guldin, a ChIna expert and director of the PLU Global

Studies Program, opened the way for an exchange relationship dur­ ing several visits to the PRC in recent years. Last year Dr. Thad Barnowe, a PLU professor in busi­ ness administration, spent a year at Zhongshan on a Fulbright ex­ change fellowship. This past fall Keith Workman, a junior from Auburn, Wash . , began a year of study at Zhongshan. And late last fall, two Zhongshan junior faculty members came to PLU to begin graduate studies. Yuedong Want plans to pursue a master's degree in computer science, and Yongtao Zheng is working on an MBA. (See related story) PLU has nominated three of its faculty members for a teaching exchange beginning next fall. Prof. Li has been in the U .S. for the past year, visiting Texas A&M, Stonybrook and UCLA. After his PLU stay, he will visit Boston U niversity .

Negotiator Outline Com lexltles Of U.S. -Soviet Arms Control Efforts By Jim


A former arms negotiator of­ fered glimpses of the complexities involved in dealing with the Soviet Union during a two-week visit to PLU in January Ronald Nelson, former deputy U.S. representative to the Mutual and Balanced Force reducti o n Talks in Vienna, taught a course on arms control duri ng the January Interim. He was also a featured speaker at PLU's Eighth Interna-

Ron Nelson

tional Business Conference Feb. 3. An initial problem, Nelson pOint­ ed out. is to establish our own negotiating position. "First there must be agreement within our bureaucracy, primarily between the Departments of State and Defense, and that's no easy task," he said. "Next, there is the matter of public opinion; there must be general public support for our policies," Nelson continued. A third step Is to reach agree­ ment with our allies. And finally,

WNPA Sponsors Pu IIsher-ln­ Residence At PLU Jay Becker, publisher of the Vash n-Maury Island Beachcomb­ er, will be publisher-in-residence on the PLU campus March 2B-30, representi ng the Washi ngton Newspaper Publishers Associa­ tion. This is the first time the WNPA program will have been extended to this campus, and PLU is the only private university selected for par­ ticipation in the program. The WNPA has sponsored member publishers on the cam puses of Western Washington University, University of Washington a n d Washington State University for several years.

policies are ready to present to Soviet negotiators, he Indicated . At this point a new series of negotiating problems emerge, problems rooted in culture, his­ tory and ideology. "They do not trust us," Nelson said, pointing to Russia's long history of mistrust of foreig ners, particularly those who are strong . "They've been in­ vaded, over the centuries. by the Mongols, the Swedes, the Turks and the Germans. The scars are quite deep, and they have almost a phobia about security." Then there I S the nature of Marxism-Leninism. "They will seek to exploit t he weaknesses of those they see as enemies, and their view of the world is very black­ white. If you are not their friend, you are their enemy," he con ­ tinued . Nelson explained that the Soviet negotiating style is frustrating as well . There has been open abuse and hostility, though that has diminished in recent years. They have a tendency to obscure their points, and to use the negotiating forum for propaganda. There are delays that sometimes seem inter­ minable. And there is lack of inclination to come to agreement. Not only are their negotiators suspicious of their counterparts, they are very careful not to arouse the suspicions of their own gov­ ernment by being at all com­ promising, either personally or professionally, he indicated . Not all of the roadblocks are created on the Soviet side. Nelson pOinted out, "Our changes in adm i n i stration a re dama g i ng . There is a lack of consistency in our policies. It seems like there should be things we could do to reduce the vacillations." In spite of the problems, there are good reasons to continue to negotiate. He continued, "Com­ pared to the years of the Cold War, there is more tendency to com­ promise. They are less ideological and more pragmatiC, relatively speaking. And they are more real­ istic about what can be accomp­ lished . "We must continue to talk," Nelson concluded . "Without it, in spite of the problems, it would be more difficult to maintain a rela­ tive balance of power. And it is the balance, perhaps more than arms control or reduction, that is the most powerful deterrent to war." He noted that in our modern world, the U.S. and the Soviet Union have many converging and interrelated areas of common in­ terest besides arms control. which helps maintain stability. Prior to his service in Vienna, Nelson served on the staff of the Senate Foreign Relations Arms Control Subcommittee. He cur­ rently is a Washi ngton consultant in the field of exports and govern­ ment defense contracts.

Africa City Builder, A PLU AI m, Earns Distinguished Service Award Henry A. Nyirenda, a consultant

to the Botswana government in

Southern Africa, received a Distin­ guished service Award from PLU, his alma mater, Maret' 1 . A 1975 PLU graduate, Nyirenda has a distinguished record of many years of public service. He has been recognized by govern­ mental, military and in d ust ria l leaders in Africa, including the President of Botswana . During his recent visit to the Pacific Northwest, Nvirenda was a featured speaker during Southern Africa Awareness Week at PLU. He delivered the address the evening of the award presentation, and was a panelist during an earlier program . Before coming to the U .S. to study in the early 70s, Nyirenda was a governmental official in Tanzania. He left that government when it began to implement a policy of imprisonment and op-

preSSion of some tribal con­ stituencies. He earned a bachelor of busi­ ness administration degree at PLU an later recei ed a master of public administration degree from Portland State University. Returning to Africa four years ago, he was appOinted by the government of Botswana to plan a township in an isolated area where diamonds had recently ee dis­ covered and a mine was planned . He was responsible for all aspects of the socio-economic project ­ highway, streets, homes, busines­ ses, agencies, banks, churches, community center, swi mmi ng pool. services, parks, playgrounds, recreation facilities and business. The city of Jwaneng, Botswana, became a reality i n less than four years. The father of a current PLU student. Faida Rachel Nyirenda, he is also an active churchman and dedicated man of God.

ew Masters Degrees In computer Science Approved By PLU Regents Two new master's deg ree prog­ rams in computer science will be offered at Pacific Lutheran Univer­ sity beginning next fall, according to PLU President Dr. William O. Rieke. The progra ms. an MS in compu­ ter science and an MA i n computer applications, were approved in mid- February by the PLU Board of Regents. Dr. John Herzog, chairman of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, and Dr. Richard Spillman, assistant profes­ sor of com puter science, ex­ plained that the MS in computer science is designed for students whose main interest is computer science. The MA in computer applica­ tions is of interest to students with .backgrounds in other fields who have a strong interest in compu­ ters. "Th is degree program allows these students to study advanced appl ications of computers in their chosen field," Herzog said. "It is a unique program which takes advantage of PLU's cross disciplinary strengths," he added . "Students will have an opportuni­ ty for further study in their major while receiving an advanced de­ gree in computer science. " A special li mited enroll ment five-year program lead ing to a combined BA-MS degree in com­ puter science will also be offered . This program allows qualified stu­ dents to begin their graduate . studies in their senior year. Masters candidates will be able to participate in a variety of ongo­ ing research programs, as well as take advantage of the depart-

m e n t ' s extensive com puting facilities. Those i nclude a collec­ tion of personal computers, a minicomputer system, and both Digital Equipment and Tektronix graphics com puters. In addition, students have access to the un­ iversity's mainframes which in­ clude a VAX 1 1 1780 and VAX 1 1 1750. The need for a master's prog­ ram became apparent in an in­ credibly short time, accord ing to Herzog . I n just two years, PLU's computer science major has grown beyond all projections not an isolated case, but part of a nationwide phenomena . "This does not appear to be a passing fad," said Dr. Spillman. "As more students are introduced to computers at the secondary level, more will develop an interest in seeking a career in computer science - accelerating the de­ mand for quality computer sci­ ence education . "Nor should we fear 'over­ production' of speCialists," Spill­ man added . "With new applica­ tions of computer technology appearing al most daily, it is certain that we are only at the beg inning of the computer revolution, and universities will not be able to keep up with the demand for a number of years. He pointed to a study that esti mated the need for masters graduates in computer science at 34,000 annually. Currently, only 4,000 are graduating nationally per year. Available programs in the northwest to date (University of Washington and Seattle Universi­ ty) cannot satisfy the dema nd, he indicated .

New Freeze- Dryi ng Tech niques Wi ll Preserve Historic Indian Artifact Last summer a Pacific Lutheran University archaeological team un­ earthed a 2,750-year old Indian wooden mat creasing tool nea r the Hoko River on the Olympia Peninsula. The artifact is believed to be the oldest wooden artifact ever found in North America . Today the mat creaser, which was waterlogged, is being pre­ served by a new technique de­ veloped at the U ni vers ity of Washington. The technique will preserve the wood essentially as it was found, complete with tool markings and embellishments. It is a s i g n i f i c a n t i n nova t i o n i n methods for preserving water­ logged wood, according to PLU

Chlldren 's Literature Collection Dedicated In Honor Of Blomquist

Grace Blomquist

A retired English professor who has devoted years of work and care to the preservation of good children's literature was honored at PLU Feb. 1 2. In PLU's Mortvedt Library that afternoon, the Grace Blomqu ist Children's Literature Col lection was dedicated. The 3,650-volume collection, most of which has been acquired through Blomquist's efforts, is second in size o n l y t o t h e U n i v e r s i ty of Wash i ngton col lection i n the Northwest. Both the size and quality of the collection are attributed to Blomquist's devotion, according to library director John Heussman . · Prof. Blomquist retired from full-time teaching in 1 976 after 37 years on the PLU faculty.

Her studies in the field have taken her to Europe many times, to reg ions where the classics were written. "Many children's books are pure fa ntasy, but they accurately m irror the times in wh ich they were written," Blomqu ist believes. "They reflect historical and social attitudes," she said . She continued to teach partti me and work on the library collection, until the past couple of years. The dedication also marked the creation of an endowment in Blomquist's name earmarked for the continued development of the collection . dockwise from top: Grace cover Blomquist with President William Rieke; with President Emeritus Robert Mortvedt; with retired athletic director Clifford Olson; with children's ''iterature professor Suzanne Rahn and English professor Lucille Joh nson; with English professor Ray Klopsch; new library sign; English professor .

archaeology professor Dr. Dale Croes. He explained that wood norma l­ ly has thick cell walls that give the wood its strength and help it maintain its shape. But years of lyi ng in water have caused the cell walls in many wooden objects to deteriorate. Moreover, the water may account for up to 99 percent of the wood's weight. If these objects are dried, the cell walls colla pse and the object shrinks and warps. Ja mes Barbour, a US graduate student and Alan MacKenzie, a researcher i n the UW Center for Bioengineering and Department of Bi ological Structure, have found a mixture that prevents shrinking and warping. They satu­ rate the artifact with a waxy form of polyethylene glycol, which is first frozen, then freeze dried to remove the remaining water. The artifact will eventually be on d isplay at the M a k a h Tri b a l Museum at Neah Bay. "It i s part of the Makah's early prehistory," Croes said.

Summer schoiars Program Attracts Academically Gifted H.S. Students

Trudy Strain

PLU Student Earns Honor From International Radio-TV Society A Pacific Lutheran University communications major was one of 26 students selected nationwide to attend the International Radio and Television Society Symposium in ew York City in February. Trudy Strai n of Kent. Wash., a junior, was picked from among nearly 500 applicants. PLU communication arts pro­ fessor Dr. Richard Ruidl was one of 75 faculty members nationwide attending the same event. Ruidl, in his third year at PLU, teaches broadcasting courses. The five-day program at the Waldorf Hotel inclu ded sessions on sales, marketing, production, advertising and many other facets of the broadcasting industry. The students also met a number of industry giants, including com­ mentator Howard Cosell and ex­ ecutives Grant Tinker and Fred Silverman . They worked on prob­ lem-solving projects and learned lob search and i nterview techni­ ques. Symposium attendance was the first step in a further selection process that will result in 10 students being offered summer

broadcasting i nternships in New York City. Last summer Strain i nterned at KOMO- TV in Seattle and is working part-time during the school year at KCPQ-TV in Tacoma.

Last summer 50 academically gifted high school students par­ ticipated in P LU's first Summer Scholars Program. At the end of' the program, they rated it at 4.84 out of a possible 5.0. A comment by Paul Bravnann, a senior from Seattle, was typical. "I came here feeling resentfu l be­ cause my summer was being destroyed. In retrospect, I think it's one of the most valuable things I've ever done." This year's expanded Summer Schola rs Program will be held July 1 6-Aug. 3. The program has a simple but profound goa l : to bring together good students and good teachers and ask them to do good work, according to program direc­ tor Dr. Judith Carr. Each student will spend morn­ ings in a core class, selected from among: physics, writing, biology, global issues, math and literatu re. Afternoon elective opti ons i n­ c l u d e p h i l o s o p h y , h i sto ry, economics, ethics, visual arts and computer cience. The residential experience is an important dimension, Carr indi­ cated. "Students develop close friendships and find intensive in­ teraction with bright peers to be the most significant aspect of the program," she sai d . For some, i t i s the first time they have not been socially penalized for academic achievement. she added . The program is designed for students who have completed their sophomore or junior years. Candidates are usually nominated by their school district, but may be nominated by a parent or member of the community. As a ru le they should be in the top five percent of their class. The program is co-sponsored by PLU and the Tacoma Area Cou ncil on Giftedness. Nominations should be received at PLU by March 23 to permit

New 0 Club Mark Adds To Recent Civlng Records The calendar year just ended saw a new giving record set by the PL� Q Club. Gifts totaled $492,000, an Increase of seven percent over the previous year, according to d ev e l o p m e n t d i rector David Berntsen . The new record continued a n upward trend on the heels o f a 40 percent increase in total contribu­ tions to the university duri ng the most recent fiscal year, as report­ ed by Luther Bekemeier, PLU vice­ president for development. Total unrestricted gifts last year g r e w f r o m $ 848,298 t o $1 ,697,1 77, a 1 00 percent in� crease. Cash gifts, including capital support, jumped 40 percent to $3,81 5,734, he indicated. Many factors contributed to the I n c r e a s e s , a c c o r d i n g to Be­ kemeier, but one of the most gratifying was a doubling in per­ centage of alumni participation

Al u m n i ca pita l partici pati o n doubled just i n the past year, he added . "This has been a banner year, and we want to gratefully acknow­ ledge the support, Bekemeier em­ phasized. Most recently, 22 members of the Board of Regents made new or continuing pledges totalling $21 8,760 to the "Sharing i n Strength" capita l /endowment campaign . the pledges helped raise the total in the five year ca mpaign to near the $1 2 million mark. In its annual report for last year, the Council for Financial Aid to Education indicated that contribu­ tions to colleges and universities nationwide had risen 1 5 percent.

A planned Music Center at Pacif­ ic Lutheran University still exists only in architect's drawings and models, yet it has already achieved national distinction. The Center's design by Perkins & Will of Chicago rated cover treat­ ment in the Ja nuary awards issue o f Progressive A rchitecture magazine. It was the first of nine awards winners selected from among 934 nationwide en ries in PIA's 31st annual competition. The annual PIA awards are the only awards given for design na­ tionally. Luther Bekemeier, PLU vice-president for development, and P&W project engineer Ralph Joh nson accepted the award at a ceremony in the ballroom of the Plaza Hotel in New York City. The PIA writeup was one of several features WhlC the Center deSign has rated . The December '83 issue of Interiors, a deSign industry magazine, carried a fea­ ture, as did the program for an Architectural League conference. Johnson made the conference presentatio n . Debora h D ietc h o f Interiors wrote, "The PLU music center reflects a current willing ness on the part of private u niversities to invest in quality design . " She added, "The Perkins & Will design emphasizes classical lines on a steeply sloping site, creating a strong identity for the Center." Classical elements include a colon­ nade, a rotunda and a pavilio n . The Center will bridge the bluff between upper and lower campus and will feature a clear view of Mount Rainier. The 45,000 square­ foot structure i ncludes a 600-foot concert hall. James Polshek, founder of a New York C ity architectural firm and chairman of the PIA jury, said, "This is really quite remarkable in the encyclopedic way in which it is being thought out. It's extremely complete . " Another juror, arch itect Sam Davis of Berkeley, Calif., said, "The plan is wonderful. The building is a most comfortable aggregation of discreet elements that lock to­ gether and work as a processional up the hill. across the axis and into the rotunda . " The projected cost o f the Center is $4.6 million. It is one of two major buildings being funded by PLU's c u r r e n t $ 1 6 . 5 m i l l i o n ca pital /endowment fund cam­ paign, "Sharing in Strength . " I n addition to the concert hall, the building i ncludes practice and instruction rooms for both indi­ viduals arid ensembles, a rotunda public lobby, and an angled colon­ nade for pedestrian circulation on the hillside.

uL..�? A S pecial Message to Pa re nts of PLU Stu d ents: Review, Ad d e nd u m, a n d Mod ifications of Cost Conta i n ment Pla n Twice within the next few months, M rs. Rieke and I will have an opportu nity to have as guests in our home, parents of PLU students. On March 1 0, parents and students will visit as pa rt of the Pa rents' Weekend celebration . Two months later, i n May, graduates and families will be invited to share part of the Com mencementfestivities at an Open House. These visits are among the most keenly anticipated events over the years. It is gratifying to experience the support and affection among family members, and it is very helpful to me in talking with them to find what some of their concerns may be. For the parents, as well as for students, faculty /administration and Regents alike, a prime concern is holding down the cost of tuition . In a memorandum I sentto parents under date of February 1 3, 1 984,1 introduced a Cost Containment Plan (CCP) designed to not only limit tuition growth in 1 984-85, but -for students who fully avail themselves of it- actually to decrease from current levels both the total tuition cost of a baccalaureate deg ree as well as the pro-rated cost per credit hour in a given year. The following is a review of the Cost Containment Pla n . Special cases have been considered, based on reaction to the plan; an addendum and modifications have resulted . As mentioned in my memorandum, it was anticipated that changes undoubtedly would require adjustments and learning on the part of all concerned . This further clarification is meant to accommodate the majority of concerns.

*Multiple term credit Review

For full-time underg raduate students (viz . , those taki ng 1 0 0r more hours in a regular semester), the CCP aba ndons the per credit hour charge system and substitutes a blanket fee which covers up to a maximum number of hours within each of the component terms of the 4-1 -4 academic calendar. Specif­ ically, for 1 984-85 the tuition for a full-time student will be: 1 . $5950 for the full year, which pays for a maximum of 1 5 hours in the Fall, 5 hours in Interim, a nd 15 hours in the Spring. (See modification chart below which explains greater flexibility in the distribution of hours,) 2 . $2775 for either Fail or spring semester alone, which pays for a maximum of 1 5 hours. 3 . $3325 for either semester plus the Interim, which pays for a maximum of 1 5 hours in the semester a nd 5 hour in the Interim. 4. $750 for Interim alone, which pays for a maximum of 5 hours. 5 . $1 75 per credit hour surcharge for stu­ dents who register for more than the 1 5 hours per semester covered by the blank­ et tuition. 6. Audit (non-credit) courses will be consi­ dered regular hours covered by the blank­ et pla n .

Room & Board

Room and Board charges will be $281 5 for the 1 984-85 academic year.

For part-time undergraduate students (viz., those taking 1 to 9 hours), the CCP for 1 984 limits growth in tuition to 4.5%, increasing charges from $ 1 77 to $ 1 85 per credit hour. Tuition for all graduate students will also be $ 1 85 per credit hour regardless of the number of hours taken. The CCP provides financial incentive for academic enrichment as well as more rapid progress (and hence reduced total cost) toward a baccalaureate degree. It is evident that the full-time student who takes the 35 hours covered by the plan for an entire year actually experiences a reduction in tuition rate from the current 1 983-84 level of $1 77 /hr. (compare $1 77 /hr. with $5950 di­ vided by 35 hrs. $1 70/hr.). Even the student who takes 34 hours total during the yea r (e.g. 1 4-5-1 5) experiences a reduction in rate (compare $ 1 77 /hr. with $5950 divided by 34 hrs. $1 75 hr.). In addition, by financial incentive, the CCP encourages taking hours above the covered 35 per year. One example of how this occurs is seen in the case of the student who takes 1 6 hours in the Fall, 5 hours in the Interim, and 1 6 hours in the Spring for a total of 37 hours. The student is charged $5950 for the blanket 35 hours, plus 2 x $ 175 $350for the two excess hours, or a total charge of $6300. This total yields an hourly average cost of ($6300 divided by 37) $ 170.27 or 3.8% belowcurrent rates. =


In addition to the mid-year graduates mentioned in the original memorandum, any continuing student who requires 32 or fewer hours to complete an undergraduate de­ gree, and who will graduate in the Winter of 1 984 0r Spring orSummer of 1 985, will have the option of choosing the most cost effective rate, whether the CCP or the per credit hour (@ $1 85) charge. This is a one-year only exception. Modifications

The 35-hour blanket rate is applicable with any combination of hours during the terms of the reg u lar academic yea r up to the 35 hour limit. for Fall, lnterim, and Spring . Examples of how hours could be taken a nd charged, including a multiple-term credit (MTC) of $200 for the Interim, and $1 50 for the Spring semester are shown above.

Record Q C l u b Gift Tota l H e l ps Stud ents And strengthens u niversity Progra m s By John Aakre Associate Director Of Development

Q Club gift income for 1 983 totaled a record $492,000 - an increase of 7 percent overthe previous year. These unrestricted gifts, which come from friends, alumni, businesses and churches who support the University's Annual Fund, help underwrite the cost of education for every student who attends PLU. This support is particularly crucial today when many people are concerned about the rising costs of higher education. The Q Club was founded 1 2 years ago in anticipation of this continuing concern . Since that time, the organization has received gifts which will pass the $3'% million mark in accumulated contributions sometime this month . All of those gifts have been used to help the University maintain quality prog ­ rams while at the same time remaining within the financial reach of most students. One of the reasons for the growth and success of the Q Club over the years has been the dedication a nd commitment of its volunteer leadership. If you are already a member of the Q Club, I would like to than k you for your concern and your support. If you are not a member, but would like to join us in our efforts, you are encouraged to call or write for further information. There are four giving levels in the Q Club: Member: $240 a year or $20 a month Associate Fellow: $480 a year or $40 a month Fellow: $1 ,000 a year or $83.33 a month Senior Fellow: $2.400 a year or $200 a month

A Ta l e Of TWO Freeways: The Key Word Is Ca re By Harvey Neufeld Exec. Director, Collegium/Church Relations

My mind takes me to Germany to find the lead-in to this column. Several years ago my family and I were motoring over the gentle hills south of Stuttgart looking for the "ausfahrt" (exit) that would take us to Sindelfingen, the home of Mercedes Benz cars. I'd always wanted to see the assembly of this, my favorite car, engineered for every occasion. My trusty four cylinder diesel back in Tacoma had such pedigree. The insane speeds of the autobahns proved the car talk to be true - obviously the best. And the autobahns attracted Benzes like honey does flies. Back home in America, last week, on Interstate 90 in the big sky Montana I motored back from a conference convention in my trusty diesel. Diesels are durable. That's another way of saying they can 't go fast. But when the incredibly long, tedious ribbons of cement stretch "forever and a mile" ahead, one tends to speed just a wee bit? Fortunate­ ly my four banger has a very low upper limit. Even so, what happened next startled me. Montana's highways have more deer per mile than most. Now, sadly, there is one less. Running over anything at highway speeds is alarming. Hitting a deer comes close to driver panic. I'm writing this, so you know I came out OK. The deer is gone. It was night, a nd the mortally wounded animal could not be

found. Of course it would die in a few hours. Such was the way of the Interstate. I often sing when I drive. Hymns. Cowboy songs. It passes time and keeps one awake. But I didn't feel like singing the rest of the way home. At first my grateful prayer was to than k God for safety. I was reminded that besides God I had German engineering on my side, "built for any emergency." Actually, first I slowed down, then I prayed. Naturally, when I got home I bragged about how good my reflexes were and how well my car handled! But in my more pensive moments I think about that deer. She was no match for the research labs of Sindelfingen! The human element finally enters in. That would be me. For a moment I rejoiced in the beauty of my machine! But, the animal was dead. Now it seems, upon further reflection, the car is a beast and beauty is dead. Of course it was an accident. It could not have been prevented, even at 30 mph . Yet in some way I am personally responsible to the system of nature which surrounds me. After all, it is God's world. And I, as the crown of creation, should some way accommodate the rest of creation. Maybe technology saved my life. That would be good. But the deer is dead. That makes me sad . I'll drive more carefully - that's the key word - care. Take care, my friend.

"I can't afford to sell it, but I can't afford to keep it, either! " How often I have heard that comment from someone who bought real estate some time ago a nd who has watched that property grow in value over the years. Today, with the increased value, the prospect of a consider­ able capital gains tax is present on a sale of the property. At the same time, if the property is not sold, real estate taxes seem to increase with regularity, which causes a financial burden to many. Recently, a friend of the University estab­ lished a Charitable Remainder Unitrust, fund­ ing it with real estate. He immediately received a charitable contribution deduction equal to about 60 percent of the value of the property placed in the trust. This provided income tax savings.

Even though the property had appreciated in value over the years, there was no capital gains tax to be paid when the trustsold the property. This meant capita/gains tax savings.

Lastly, the asset was removed from his estate, offering possible estate tax savings. The amount of such savings would depend on the size of the estate. In addition to receiving these significant tax benefits, this PLU friend will be getting income from the trust. at over a 10 percent figure. This continues for as long as he lives. Not too bad a deal when you think about it! The next time you think: "I Can't afford to sell it, but. I can't afford to keep it, either," also think of PLU. Maybe we can help you turn that asset that has g rown in value into lifetime income and significant tax savings.

Westering Caps 12th Year With NAJA National Coach Of The Year Honors

Reac i g one's oten ia By J1m Klttllsby


Since, according to Frosty Wes­ teri n g ' s burgeo n i n g vers i c l e looseleaf, "Big time is where you make it " perhaps it's only poetic justice that Frosty should make it , , big ! Westering, 5 6 , has been named NAIA Division II Football Coach of the Year, The national award, announced Jan, 9 in Kansas City, came on the heels of Westering's selection as NAIA District 1 coach of the year, Northwest college division coach of the year, and Tacoma News Tribune man of the year in sports, Westering, whose style exudes color, class and cha rm, directed PLU to a 9-3 season in 1 983 and a national runnerup finish. Wester­ ing 's teams have been in the national playoffs four of the last five seasons, His 1 980 squad cap­ tured the national title. In 1 2 seasons at PLU, Westering has compiled a 92-27-0 record , He has earned six district and three regional coach of the year cita­ tions. Dusting off a line from his storehouse of psychological and motivational adages, Dr, Wester­ ing, a full professor, said, "Doing your best is more i mportant than being the best In this case, the opportunity to be the best is a real honor, So many people are involv­ ed in this award , There is no 'i' in team and that is what has made our program one ofthe best in the country " A gifted orator, Westering can dazzle even the most demanding audiences with uplifting stick-to-it messages, orchestrated with his ever-present jar of beans, He is equally comfortable in a spiritual setting and is a regular at regional and national conclaves of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. One week after PLU's 25-21 reversal to Northwestern in the national championship contest,

the Seattle Times and Seattle Post­ I ntelligencer, in their joint Sunday edition, devoted a full page ap­ plauding the conduct of PLU play­ ers and coaches duri ng and after the game. The article bore a bold headline, " Losing With Class, " In it Frosty recited his Double Win philosophy of play, "You can do it on the scoreboard and/or by playing to your potential . " His idea of character: "When you win, you show some of your character, When you lose, you show it aiL" Usually on the delivery side of the one-liners, Frosty was on the receiving end of tributes from a cross section of his former cap­ tains. "Frosty always preached that success is a process, not a goal," said Don Poier (1 973 Captainl. "Now, after ten years of broad­ casting - through many high poi nts and low points - I've come to realize the true essence of that statement. " Rick Finseth (1 974): " I like his idea that success is reaching one's potenti a l , rather than scoring more points than the next guy." L arry Green (1 975): "There are no other programs in this whole human race with Frosty's kind of style or Frosty's kind of grace," Steve Ridgway (1 976): " H is capacity to love nearly 1 00 players, ' year in and year out is directly tied to his love for Christ " Prentis Johnson (1 977): "Frosty not only produced great athletes; he also cultivated them to be great people, " John Bley (1 980): "It i s indeed a paradox, that out of the violence of the game of football, one learned the meaning of love from Frosty. " Greg Rohr ( 1 981 ): "His personal strength is portrayed through the moral and physical strength of his teams, " Curt Rodin (1 982): " Motivation, dealing with pressure, handling success and defeat and making the most of one's potential are i ntegral parts of the Lute football program. Believe me, they have been important to my success in medical school. " Todd Davis (1983): "Frosty and his program have changed my outlook on life. Such lessons as the importance of the 'other gUY' will be with me as long as 1 live."

The Wildcats won the opener, 65 -61 in Tacoma. In his first year as Lute Mentor, Haroldson di rected PLU to a share of the Northwest Conference title (10-2). Haroldson was cited as NAIA District 1 coach of the year. Boyce, a 6-3 senior guard, earn­ ed all-district and all-conference honors, scoring nearly 1 6 points a game. He was named most valu­ able player i n the Northwest Con­ ference. Boyce sank four free throws i n the final two seconds of play to give the Lutes a 65-61 decision over Seattle U in the preliminary playoff game. Boyce had 22 points for the night. Balance was the key to Lute success. Only Boyce averaged in double fig ures, but nine other players reached the double digit scoring level on at least two occasions. Nineteen v ictories, level reach­ ed in 1 967 , 1 978, and 1 979, is the most fo r a PLU team since 1 966 (20-71. The Lute hoop future appears to be bright.

Olson, second vice president of the NAIA, has twice taught a course, Olympism and Amateur Sports Ideals, at PLU. In the sum­ mer of 1 982 , he attended the U .S. Olympic Academy at Pepperdine University. "It has been my professional d ream to visit the origin of amateur sport," said Olson. "In addition, the international aspect of this academy, brought about through representation by sport leaders from nu merous countries, will be very interesting and highly informative. I'm very thrilled and honored with the selection."

Ooal : A vital Alumni Association Essential To University Ife

By Dr. Jeff ProbstfJeld preSident, Alumni Association

Vital m ea n s essential to life - literally If we use that te rm , is the Alumni Association a vital group? To whom? Do we perform a vital function? What is it and for whom do we perform it? The Alumni Association has many activities, including those at Homecoming. Further, we regularly recognize those certain specia:1 individuals who have brought great honor to themselves and the university or those who have served the u niversity in an exemplary fashion . We also g rant some limited scholar­ ship funds. Are these vital fu nctions? In the eye of the beholder, there will be a diversity of opinion . They refresh some and sustain or support others . Do they provide a critical or life givi ng measu re to anyone? The scope would be limited, but they are nevertheless very important. The Alu m n i Board conti nues to search for activities which will contribute in a vital way to the university and to the alumni. We wa nt to be a part of the development of the university in the broadest sense of the word . We want to foster the sense of community and family which almost always occurs for those who have been a part of PLU . The university's story has never been sweeter nor grander in every facet: academ­ ically, spiritually, physically, athletically, social-

Lady Lute HOOP squad Finishes With Three Wins Based on the team's 3 -26 bas­ ketball record, it is safe to surmise that PLU women didn't stoke up on the Breakfast of Champions. There was, however, a case of Special K. With the KK Korps coming to the rescue, the Lady Lutes snapped a 1 9-9ame losing streak late in the season and finished with a 3-7 conference ledger. Freshman forward Kris Kallestad scored a team-high 1 2 .2 ppg and pulled down 7 . 3 rebounds per contest. Outside sharpshooter Ka­ ren Kvale, a sophomore guard, netted 10.6 ppg . Her 78 percent free throw conversion was one of the best marks in NAIA D istrict 1 .

Iy and comm u nally. Strong statements and clai ms - but backed by hard facts which su rround one while on the campu s, nearly everywhere i n the northwest Un ited states and progressively in the national and even Internationa l media. God has blessed us richly with H is continued presence in virtually a II that we do or touch. He conti n ues to provide us with strong administrative leadership and faculty, dedicated goverm ng a nd policy mak­ ing bo a rds which are eager and willing to do that which is necessary to achieve and maintain excellence, and most importantly, you - the alumni - many thousands, now. We are at an important juncture, however. To take the next step and reach the next level of excellence, we need to reach even fu rther. The Alumni Board has chosen to work on th ree particular areas for this year: chapter developmen t, student recru itment. and the new "alumni giver" identification. We must take leadersh ip in all three of these areas if we are truly to be a part of the development of the u niversity in its broadest sense and to serve the alumni association more effec­ tively. We are hoping to have 18 vital chapters by the beginning of the new academic year. The immediate goal of these is to provide an opportunity for social interaction and com­ munity for alums in given areas. We are fully intending to develop other chapters in the future. Chapters provide a natural opportu n­ ity for a nyone from the u niversity to come and update local alums and other interested parties about new events at the university. They provide an excellent opportu nity for local student recruitment. The general rubic has been for all to find new students for recruitment. Some have taken this to heart, but only a few have

Lute Wrestlers Finish Second In Conference O k l a h o m a , as the Broadway musical suggested, looked O . K . At least for a day. Four Lute wrestlers won open­ ing round matches at the NAIA national tournament in Edmond, Okla . However, PLU was denied individual hardware and placed 27th in the team totals. Senior Mike Agosti ni, who won the Northwest Conference 1 77 title, placed seventh at nationals. The 1 982 All-American finished his Lute career with a 92-28-3 record . He was 26-7-2 this year. PLU, second in the NWC, had sparkling season records from its four other national participants. Phil Anthony ( 1 2 6) had a 36- 1 2 season log . Tom Baldwin (1 34) was 1 8-9. Christ Wolfe ( 1 42) captured the NWC gold and finished 22-7. Jeff Lipp (1 58) recorded a 1 9-8 ledger.

regularly contributed vital information for this critical effort. Board members have taken it upon themselves this year to fin d one potential new student between each of our boar meeti ngs and t o supply relevant I nformation to the admissions office Th is would result in about 75 potential new students. Modest goals? Yes, but we have never had any concrete goals before. We are also desperately in need of new contributions to the annua/fund to show major fou ndations and corporations that alumni support is active and increaSin g . O u r overall giving to annual and capital funds has increased dramatically in the last year to 21 .4 percent participation. Virtually all of this growth has occured in capita/fund g iving, specifically to the W. O . Rieke Science Building as part of "Sharing in Strength . " We must be exceedingly grateful and tha nkful for that. We must notforget the annual fund, however. "Even a dollar will help," is our theme. Members of the alumni board have agreed to identify three potential " new givers" to the annual fund between each of our meetings this year. Again, modest. but we have not had specific goals in this area as board members in the past. This should result in over 200 potential new g ivers to the annual fund and help us realize our three-year goal of doubling the percentage ofthose giving to the an nual fund . This is a working board with goals and expectations. We have decided to take an even greater and more constructive leader­ ship role in the development of the u niversity and are vitally interested in helping the alum ni to conti nue their close ties with the u niversity and to maintain active involvement in its affairs.

Lutes Bring Positive Mental Attitude TO Elementary School students Every Friday during the fall. members of the Pacific Lutheran University football and cheerlead­ ing teams visited Lister Elementary School in Tacoma, establishi ng a kind of "Big Brother-Big Sister" relationship. They teach the Lister children how to set goals, how to reen­ force and support each other, and how not to put each other down. For example, "If everyone tells a football team they aren't any good, then that's what happens," said PLU offensive guard Dave Chung. " Instead, they should be encouraged, and encourage each other. " Another Lute asked, "How many of you have told your teachers they are doing a good job?" The PLU-Lister relationship, now several years old, includes a soft­ cover book prepared by the Lions called Lutes & Lions Playbook. It is full of lessons in self-esteem . PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) is a philosophy PLU Coach Frosty Westering brought with him to PLU 1 1 years ago. All of Frosty's teams have had winning records; most have been rated in the NAIA Division II Top 1 0; the Lutes won

the NAIA national championship in 1 980; and this past Dec. 1 0 they came within 56 seconds of a second national title. Lister principal Daryl Ashpole said, "The Lutes provide the posi­ tive role models our guys really need. I can tell the difference; there are more smiles now. Hope­ fully this makes a lasting i mpres­ sion . "

Host Families For International Students Sought The ASSE International Student Exchange is seeking local fam ilies to serve as hosts for Scandinavian , German, Swiss a n d British high school students during 1 984-85, according to ASSE area represen­ tative Betty L a r s o n ' 5 8 o f Lakewood. Fam ilies interested in serving as hosts should contact Larson at (206) 582-9360.

D r . Roger Lundblad ' 6 1 , a biochemist in the Dental Research Center at the Un iversity of North Carol ina at Chapel Hill, said i took three years to identify the basis of Factor IX-Chapel Hill. The d isorde r is named for the residence of its only known victim . One of the long -term goais i n the Factor I X project is to get the gene for Factor IX and put it back in the patient. Lundblad said it was theoretical ly possible to create the proper genetic message but that there was no way of knowing how the body would respond if the gene was introd uced . Lund blad said it took scientific tech niques developed In recent years to pinpoint the difference in the gene. The im portance of finding out how normal blood coagu lation acts is that its blood clots that cause heart attacks and strokes wh ich kill twice as many people as cancer. 1 983 KRISTI BOSCH is teaching physical education K-6 at Devlin Elementary S c h o o l in H a vre, Mont.

2 M i lestones Exemplifying the Ideals we cherish Retiring PL U Faculty Members Share Rich Teaching Legacy

Gordon Gilbertson

Gordon Gilbertson

When students return to Pacific Lutheran University next fall, there will be a discernible change in the character of the campus faculty. This past year there were 1 1 faculty members whose tenure at PLU extended back to pre-Sputnik (mid- '50s) years Next year there will be six. Five veteran professors with a combined 149 years on the PLU faculty retired May 20 With them goes a reservoir of knowledge and history that will be difficult to replace. Fittingly coincidental is the fact that all five retiring professors represent the humanities, fine arts or education, PLU 's traditional strengths, rather than the sciences or pro­ fessional schools which have become strong at the University in more recent years. As they reflected on their careers, all of them talked about education in terms of vocation, commitment, excellence, love of learning for learning 's sake, and other intan­ gibles sometimes neglected in our more hurried, tech nological, career-oriented society.

'He has been an exemplar of all that is good and true in that 'community' commitment to Lutheran higher education ' Robbins

"Gordon has an old-faShioned idea of good music," reflected Dave Robbins, chair of the PLU music department, following the an­ nouncement that Gordon O. Gilbertson, professor of music at PLU for 29 years, would retire this spring . But in this case, old-fashioned does not mean out-of-fashion . Gilbertson's legacy left to so many students over so many years is his unquestioned love and appreciation of good music. "Coupled with that love is his satisfac­ tion in the affirmation that his teaching and sharing are ongoing in classrooms all over the Northwest," Robbins added. He noted that Gilbertson has, in an under­ stated, unassuming way, encouraged in others a sense of community in our Lutheran heritage. "He has been an exemplar of all that is good and true in that 'community' com­ mitment to Lutheran higher education:' he said. Because of his vast experience in all aspects and at all levels of music education, over the years each of his music faculty colleagues has sought his help and advice. At Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., Gilbertson majored in music. After gradua­ tion in 1 937 he taught music in the high school in Ulen, Minn. He earned a masters degree at Northwestern University in 1 942 and during World War II played trombone and French horn in an Army Corps Band. Follow­ ing the war he taught in Wyoming . By 1 954 Gilbertson was ready for a move. Upon hearing of an opening at PLU and perceiving it to be similar to Concordia which he had enjoyed, he applied. It was the beginning of a long love affair with the PLU Concert Band, which he conducted until 1 972. There were 24 people in the band that

first week in '54. Gilbertson built it to 65-70, a band of symphonic proportions. "It's to the credit of the alumni who attended here that we did the job that made possible what we have now. We are able to attract a high caliber faculty and in turn high caliber students," Gilbertson said During those early years, Gilbertson taught virtually every class PLU offered in music, and at one time or another directed all its ensembles. He filled in for Gunnar Malmin with the choirs and directed the orchestra until the early '60's During the early 70's Gil bertson brought continuity during a time of change for the PLU music department. At that time there were nine full-time faculty, five ofthem new. "It hasn't bothered me to make changes if it was for the good of PLU and the depart­ ment," he asserted. He has viewed the building of PLU and the music department as an adventure "Dr. Eastvold had a way of encouraging a sense of commitment," he continued . ''I've enjoyed being a part of PLU and its growth . " I n September of 1 972 Gilbertson began teaching music education classes fu ll-time. His courses include work with the senior mUSic performance majors, the beginning music student and the general university student. He covers the spa n so well that it is not unusual to find a senior flute music major sitting next to a fresh man nursing student, both equally absorbed in his presentation . Gilbertson is proud of the library holdings which he was instrumental in developing They include works by Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Handel and more. Recently the complete works of Schoenberg and Schubert were added as well as an extensive collection of Tudor church music. A trip to Norway added many new works to the Scandinavian collec­ tion. Woven ever so gently throughout this fabric of commitment and sharing is the quiet professor's wry wit and humor. David Robbins observed with a smile, "Gordon never lets us take ourselves too seriously "

"I love wordsl " The profound si mplicity of those three words su mmarize the career of one of PLU's most revered teachers, English professor Dr Paul Reigstad They relate to his writing, to his scholarship, and to the enthusiasms which he has shared with his students . Dr . Reigstad takes phased retirement this spring after 27 years on the PLU faculty. It was the love of words and learning in all its forms that gave Reigstad to academe, and ulti mately to PLU . "From the time I was a child, I loved books and learning, he recalled recently "And I liked to write, because 1 liked to impose order on words . " He chose to become a teacher, partly "because of all the people with whom I came in contact, I admired my teachers the most, " and also the desire to share his interests and beliefs with others. "What you say is what you are:' he observed, then smiled at the thought of all the millions of words he had uttered in classes that are now 'lost. ' He believes that is why writing is so rewarding. The words can be saved, and savored, and remembered . "You can perpetuate yourself," he added with an abashed twinkle. " But that's a good feeling . " It remains difficult to convince students.

Continued on page 4

E ng l ish professor D r Lucille Johnson found mathematical symbols useful as she recently reflected on her career at PLU. First there was the circle. " I feel we have come full circle in our curriculu m , " she said shortly before she began a phased retire­ ment May 20. "We're working for what we were working for when I arrived here 31 years ago - an emphasis on basics. " There was also a full circle analogy when she recalled one of the early courses she taught called "Fine Arts. " It was a survey course that included music and literatu re, the temporal a rts; and painting, architecture and sculpture, the spatial arts. "We taught the relationships - one to the o t h e r - w i t h a n u n d e rg i rd i n g of philosophy:' she recalled . With the spatial arts she received advice from other professors. With music she was comfortable because that had once been her intended major. She studied briefly at Mac­ Phail School of Music and Drama in Min­ neapolis, but Depression economics ended that dream . S h e en rol led a t Concordia C o l l e g e , Moorhead, Minn., where she was th ree years behind Gordon Gilbertson (see related story) She graduated with a degree in English and French in 1 940. Following graduation she had graduate scholarships to either Syracuse or Washing­ ton State. The West seemed more romantic, and so it turned out to be, as she met her future husband at WSU . Over the years a t PLU Dr. Johnson has

taught every E nglish course except Shakes­ peare. At one time she taught 10 in one year, five each semester. "Eight of those were Comp classes," she remembered, cringing at the thought of all the papers she graded A maximum an nual course load today is six Reflecting further, she observed, "I've always been happy that the Publishing Careers Program in English has turned out to be so successful, because it was begun during my years as department chair. " Two more symbols gave shape to her thoughts as she pondered the ups and downs of the university and her life over three decades: the sine wave and the golden mea n . "At PLU we're like a fam ily, a n d a family has its ups and downs, " she said. She believes the u niversity has avoided the sine wave's extremes: "We have retained a core, while styles and peripheral issues have differed " And that is her wish for the PLU of the future - to remain firm on curriculum regardless of the fads of the day, and to be faithful to its Christian philosophy, regardless of how the winds of theology blow. She has great admiration for the golden mean, the Aristotelian ideal, that perfect point of moderation - as difficult as it may be to achieve, or maintain . Still another mathematical term came to mind as she contemplated the future. "Re­ tirement is gOing to be a quantum leap for me," she said . " I have lived in the shadow of the ivy since I was four years old . " As her retirement i s "phased," she will return to teach Canadian literature, her specialty and her love. When she's not teaching she will be doing research in Canada She recently received her second g rant from the Canadian embassy for that purpose. "And I hope to return to my beloved organ and piano," she added . Most of all, Dr. Joh nson will m iss the students. "I cherish them," she said. " Letters from graduates have been part of my remuneration over the years "

'Of all the people with whom I came in contact, I admired m y teachers the most' - Reigstad

Continued from page 3

" English 1 01 is the most difficult cou rse I teach, " he said. "Students have to be persuaded that their daily thoughts and activities deserve special attention, and to look carefully at their communication, both . written and ora l . " Reigstad has also taught British literature. g iving him an opportunity to awaken non­ English majors to an enthusiasm for great literary works. "It's important for them to know that literature has pri mary value in their lives," he said . "It is not an escape from reality, but a means of engagement Great literature deals with Questions of being, value, and right and wrong . " If 1 01 has been his toughest course to teach, he says Shakespeare is the most awesome. According to Reigstad, some of the plea­ sure of sharing with students has been diminished in recent years by student reluct­ ance to respond. He is convinced that the reason is a preoccupation with g rades " I feel cheated," he admitted. "Students become too timid to share when they are too concerned about being right Education is searching and asking Questions, including searching in the wrong places and getti ng some wrong answers. But it shouldn't be called failure. The only people that never fail a re the very ordinary ones . " More students should be aware that Reigstad and many other professors have written l u kewarm recommendations for some 4.0 students, as well as glowing recommendations for students with lower grades who have grasped the essence of their educational experience. The latter have stretched themselves, and have risked . "Education is an adventure. And adventur­ ers take risks, " he asserted. Adventure and risks of more basic kinds are often themes of the Scandinavian immigrant literature that has been Reigstad's research interest through the years. For many years he has specialized in the works of pioneer Norwegian author O . E . Rolvaag . Rolvaag 's most famous work, Giants in the Earth (1 927), was one of his seven novels. The Rolvaag-Reigstad relationship began when the author taught Reigstad's parents at St Olaf College in Northfield, Minn . , early in this century. Reigstad attended St Olaf with Karl Rolvaag, the author's son , who later became Minnesota governor and ambas­ sador to Iceland. Reigstad did his doctor's dissertation on Rolvaag and in 1 972 publish­ ed a well-received book, Rolvaag: His Ufe and Art.

Although an admired scholar and faculty leader, Reigstad is first of all a teacher. "To be a good teacher is a heavier load than we sometimes realize," he said . "Year after year, we have to interest students, inspire them, and keep them coming back. " Still he describes himself a s someone who loves teaching . "Most of my life it has been as natural as breathing," he added. As much as anyone at PLU, Reigstad personifies the humanities, and the liberal arts cornerstone on which the " PLU experi­ ence" rests. When he was honored as PLU's Regency Professor in 1 977, President William O. Rieke said to him during the presentation : "You exemplify the ideals we cherish and hope to pass on to others . "

George Roskos

George Roskos Few youngsters growing up in the steel town of Farrell, Pa . , during the Depression aspired to be college professors Not even George Roskos. "Only about half of us finished high school," he recalled recently as he contemp­ lated beginning phased retirement after 34 years on the PLU art faculty. As a youngster, Roskos was a putterer. He enjoyed making models, repairing bicycles, tin kering with cars. Following high school he worked in a machine shop, then enrolled in an accelerated engineering course offered by Penn State College. World War II interrupted his education . For more than three years he served in the Army Air Corps as a gunner and radio operator Following his discharge in 1 946 he went to work for Sharon Steel corporation. "I decided before long that that was not how I wished to spend my life," he said. Because post-war enrollment waiting lists were long at many schools, a close relative, a school principal, helped him get into Young­ stown College in Ohio. He finished in two­ and-a-half years with a degree in a rt educa­ tion. During that time he had met and married his wife, Jean, also an art education major. "I got involved in a rt because I still enjoyed working with my hands:' Roskos said. "And my wife was an influence in the decision to get i nto teaChing . " Following graduate work at the U niversity of Iowa, the job search began. "All the other openings at the time were in the South:' Roskos remembered . ''I'd been in the South in the Air Corps and didn't want to go back. " H e recalled his first meeting with Pacific Lutheran President Dr. Seth Eastvold and Eastvold's initial skepticism that a Czech could be a Lutheran. "I convinced him I was, " Roskos said. The art department at PLU came as a bit of a shock. "I was the art department, " he continued. "The art supplies filled two card­ board boxes in a dinky cupboard, and they

included a tOY hammer, pliers and screwdriv­ er. I never did fig u re that out " There were no annual budgets for the a rt department If you wanted something badly enough you asked President Eastvold or Dean Philip Hauge. "We really needed a potters wheel," Roskos said. "A student volunteered to make one out of old washing machine parts. The cost would be about $20. Dr. Hauge said, 'Think about it Is that really a top priority?' " During the '50s and '60s Roskos beca me widely known as a sculptor, first in concrete, then in meta l . He estimates that there are over 300 of his works in collections through ­ out the Northwest There are major works at Seattle Museum , Southcenter, Concrete Technology in Taco­ ma, Lincoln High School and a number of churches, including Parkland's Trinity Luthe­ ran and Grace Lutheran in Bellevue. The Bellevue work is a 1 2-foot ham mered copper crucifix designed by a rt department COl ­ league Ernst Schwidder. It took over 200 hours to construct with the help of '64 alumnus Darrell Smith. Roskos has won many awards over the years His priorities and media emphases have changed several times over the years His metal and concrete work won the greatest recognition. But it had its drawbacks. With a grin he explained, "To get commissions, you need a reputation . To maintain a reputation you need publicity. To get publicity you have to exhibit To exhibit. you need a volume of works, and you have to lug those big heavy things around' " The more recent work, photog ra p h i c manipulation, h e first began i n 1 965 . It involves various alterations of photographic slides. "And," he chuckled, "there's the advantage of being able to carry around an exhibit in one hand . " Roskos lost a special friend and colleague when a rt professor George Elwell died last October. They had been college classmates, and Elwell had followed Roskos to PLU in 1 959. When Roskos began working in concrete and metal, few people understood it. and such sculpture was often dismissed as junk. Today the many forms of art are more widely accepted. Some years ago an art critic described Roskos as a true artist. "A true a rtist. " he wrote, "recognizes that any form of art offers unlimited opportunities to stimulate an individual's imagination .

Emeritus By Harvey Neufeld Executive Director, Church Relations

Arne Pederson

Arne Pederson Cou ntless times over the years i t has been repeated : Pacific Lutheran University sta nds vital today because of the i ng rai ned Norwe­ gian ethic that stressed the value of educa­ tion at al most a ny cost. regardless of obsta­ cles and h a rdships . Education professor A r n e Pederso n , who bega n phased retirement May 20, has a personal and fa mily history which personifies that ethic. His grandfather was a teacher in Norway H is mother-i n - law, Agnes Rum mer, attended Spokane College, which merged with Pacific Lutheran in 1 920. He, h is wife G lo ria, and five sons all attended PLU, and a l l but one a re g raduates. But growin g up on a Northwest washi n g ­ ton farm du ring t h e Depression, Pederson was not optim istic about his chances of attending college. He had a small scholarship to washington State, but there stil l wasn't enough money. Then one day toward the end of a su m mer, Pederson 's father said, " Let's go down to Pa rkland . " A nu mber of Norweg ian fa milies from the a rea had sent ch i l d ren to Pacific Luthera n , i ncluding the Jacobsons and the Tommerviks.

Old soldiers never die. They just fade away But ak:l professors d o n 't even do that They show up at basketbal l games, concerts, homeco m i ngs and g rad uations . This pa rag ­ raph today is a short tribute to those terrific people My thought is triggered by the splendid remembrance at com mencement th is year of five disti ng u is hed professors w h o s e teaching years covered the equivalent o f 1 5 decades - 1 49 yearsl Gordon Gilbertson . assumes emeritus status now. The others (see article) -enter phased reti rement. Sometimes in the presence of this elite corps of emeriti we stand reproved , enligh ­ tened but particu la rly in awe of their ' integrity and dedicati o n . We are never bored . Their conversations are a tribute to those they remember best - their students They remember them best because they loved them the most. And while they respected all of their pupils, pa rticularly they recal l those who did well beyond a l l ex pectati o n s P e r h a ps they re m e m b e r t h e C h i n ese proverb, "The good teacher is a lways mea ­ su red by the n u m ber of students who have su rpassed h i m . " I n many ways these emeriti a re much l ike other folks their age They are white-haired, thi n ning or bald . Their perfect health is not so perfect a nymore . Their bones ache, will be ach ing, or have ached . They are story-tellers, advisors, ba bysitters, fa mily historians and philanth ropists. They affirm their g ra ndsons to be a chip off the old block and their g randdaug hters to be the very image of the beauty of grandmother And why not? It's true, isn't it? Someti mes I thi nk we will never have a Corps at PLU, a federally-sponsored master's deg ree prog ra m . Its pu rpOSf> was to prepare teachers to teach students in depressed a rea schools. Two contingents of 30 interns from throughout the cou ntry com pleted i nter n ­ sh ips at PLU . A n u mber o f them settled permanently in the Tacoma area . Through the years Pederson has been res ponsible for preparation of many of the School of Education's accred itation and state approval reports. More recently he has com p iled the report for the National Com ­ mission for Accreditation of Teacher E d uca ­ tion and has produced a series of h a ndbooks

generation of emeriti agai n as we do now Teachers retiri ng in this decade will probably be the last of those whose education was won over i ncred ible obstacles. Few in the 1 990's will remember the Depression . These emeriti of ours g rew up in a ti me when a woman could buy all the potatoes she could carry for a quarter, when the wonder drugs were Castor Oil a nd camphor Their salary was often i nadeq uate Teaching 1 8-20 hours a week with l ittle or no benefit to one's fam i ly had a way of developing cha racter . P L U has always been a t the cutting edge of character development And r i g h t l y so Teaching that would lay any claim at all to distinction must exert the i nfluence of personality u pon personality rather than merely i m part a set of facts No one could a rgue that our emeriti professo rs have not i nfluenced positively and perhaps for eterni ­ ty the character of those students with whom they ca me in contact from day to day What will they a l l do now? Their qual ity of life we hope will remain m uch the same From time to time we will hea r from them as they give us i nformation about former students for the a lu m n i m agazine. For those that were orators, we will find that they still speak with precision and vigor. Fo r those that were musicians, we will see them striking as true a note as they have in the past Those that taught E nglish will conti nue to write as superbly and articulately as befo re. And those who were a d m i nistrators will move with the same precision a nd astuteness that they had when they were at PLU . True, the o bject of th e i r o rg a n ization and their speeches and their music will not be a d ifferent circle of friends or even a form of hobby or gardening . Nevertheless, they will continue to do as well as ever . We think our emeriti are tops They ' re earned our respect and we salute them God be with them on the different elements of the School's prog ram . For 20 years he was a Cub Scout leader, serving at all local a d m i n istrative levels . 1 11 1 97 6 he received the Silver Beaver Award, the h ig hest national Boy Scout award given at the local cou ncil level . His im mediate plans include work with his wife in Gloria's Sca ndinavian Gift Shop nea r cam pus and more time devoted to his woodworking hobby Some of his creations will relate to the business, like lefse sticks and krumkake rollers.

"My father was l i ke the other Norweg ian i m m ig rants , " Pederson sai d . "They really did value educatio n . And Pacific Lutheran was their school . " Pederson's degree progra m was i nterrupt­ ed by six years of teach ing in Ca rnation and Belfair, Wash . and two years i n the Army following his 1 949 g raduation from PLU he taught for seven years in the Tacoma schools It was not an easy decision to join the PLU faculty in 1 956. It i n itially meant a reduction i n salary and loss o f benefits. " But enjoyment of the work eventually made the difference , " Pederson reca lled . At PLU Pederso n became heavily i nvolved in student teacher su pervisio n , and served as di rector of teacher placement for seven years in the '60s. "There was a high demand for teachers at that time, a n d there was no d ifficulty getting jobs for teacher candi­ dates , " he sai d . From 1 969- 7 3 he d irected the Teacher

yea r by Augsbu r g Publish ing House, Minneapolis, The primary motif of the book is struggle, Stivers explains in his preface "It is my struggle." he adm its, "but also the struggle of affluent American Christians with the rigor of the Christian ethic as it applies to the problems of world poverty, alienation i n a tech nolog­ ical society, and shortages of ener­ gy and resources. "In this struggle there is a dilemma, the dilemma of prosper­ ity," he conti n ues, "It sticks out like a sore th umb in a world of poor people, contri butes to a host of problems, and may not be sustainable, On the other hand, (we) appreciate and enjoy (our) prosperity and want it to con­ tinue, " Stivers explores th ree current social problems: poverty and mal­ nutrition, side effects of modern tech nology, and limits to growth , He then turns to the Bible for a relig ious foundation .

Business Has Responsibility To Bequeath A Better Condition Upon Future Generations

The right thing

An honorary doctor of laws degree was conferred uf)On Dr. Truex by PLU April 18. The following was presented in conjunction with that ceremony

By Dr. C. Robert Truex Jr.

We have a great and shared responsibility, a responsibility to build a strong and sturdy foundation to be bequeathed to the next generation . That generation; in turn, will build upon our foundation, ultimately transforming its work into yet another, stronger foundation to be inherited by the next generation . There are a lot of good reasons for performing this endless task, reasons that are tried and true. For instance, industrious behavior is in our self-interest. A higher standard of living, creation of more wealth, more leisure time ­ all these benefits can and do flow from our labors. Those benefits provide good reasons to work and work hard. Few things are more tried and true than the motivational power of self-interest. A second good reason for us to work hard is to create wealth that we can share with others of this generation, those who are cut by the two-edged sword of oppression and poverty. But there's another reason: a reason that's not as egOistiC as self-interest. a reason that's on an even higher moral plane than helping the disadvantaged or ou r day. The most tried and true reason of all is that our work will leave a legacy of jobs, fulfilled needs, and the potential for progress not just to one segment of a current generation, but to an entire generation worldwide. As good ste­ wards we endeavor to leave a bigger stock­ pile of seed grain so that future harvests may be even more bountiful than our own. So we work hard on building that foundation; because it is in our self-interest, because we can spread some of our wealth, but most important. we work hard and I hope smart to leave a legacy of progress. In sum, because it is the right thing to do. Our task is not dissimilar, in either scope or rightness, to the task given to Nehemiah. In the Old Testament, Nehemiah was an Israelite leader during the Jewish nation's return from Babylonian captivity. It was his vision and leadership that resulted in the rebuilding of the wall around Jerusalem . As is the case with our building job, Nehemiah and his countrymen had short­ term reasons of self-interest which impelled them to rebuild the wall - namely, the ability to defend themselves from others. But their greater goal was to provide for men, women and children far beyond their -

own generation Nehemiah led the restora ­ tion of the wall, and a restoration of their faith, because it was the right thing to do . "Then let us all do what is right," Ludwig van Beethoven, of all people, wrote. "Strive with all our might toward the unattainable, develop as fully as we can the gifts God has given us, and never stop learning . " I f we're to be a t a l l successful i n building a strong foundation for the generations that follow, we must understand, as Beethoven did, that the most basic element is learning and education . Education, metaphorically, is poured out like concrete to provide the real strength of our economic foundation for the future. That's true when the parent educates the child and instills time-tested values. It's true when the child learns the basics of reading and writing. It's true when the student chooses to progress to higher education . And it's painfully true where business schools and management schools are concerned If the business leaders of tomorrow are not properly prepared, if the men and women who are going to drive the engine of free enterprise don't know the brake pedal from the gas pedal, then any foundation we may have built simply goes to waste. If we want to do the right thing, we cannot neglect the education of tomorrow's busi ­ ness leaders. To be sure, our support must include financial contributions from the companies many of us represent. But it has to be much more than that. I think there is something to the notion that our management graduates have not been educated as well as they might have been, and that a portion of the blame for our nation's slumping productivity is rightly placed on business schools. That begs a question, of course. Who is best equipped to address that problem? We in business are. We' re in the best position to know what will be necessary in the future, and in which areas of study today's business students should be educated We need to support business and manage­ ment schools with money, and we need to see that faculty are well-equipped . But more importantly, we need to make sure that cu rricula are on target. And that will require some time and effort from the very best management minds. It's part of our responsibility to see that business schools are producing g raduates who are international in outlook rather than provincial; students who are oriented toward the long run, not the short run; and managers who will see people first and computers second. We need to keep a watchful eye on our business schools to see that they instill a sense of history, that the curricula are integrated rather than segregated, that the emphasiS is on holistic experience rather than book-learning; that time is devoted to the development of creativity and not the memorization of management models. Progress demands that we not fall into the intellectual trap that allows us to say that we have achieved what our predecessors could not. that we have successfully reduced management to a science rather than an art. As long as management includes people, it

will remain, by and large, an art. Prog ress demands that we hold on to that truth . If we're successfu l, our business and management schools will produce wel l ­ educated leaders who know how to listen. And those leaders will succeed The reason for doing all this, for expending all this effort, is simple It is the right thing to do. It's one component of our effort to leave a legacy of progress for future generations There are other reasons to support and work with business schools. The reasons may be less grand and on a slig htly lower moral plane, but they are real and powerful For instance, we know that well-funded education programs are a magnet for com­ merce, including the hig h -tech businesses we so desire for our industrial base. We've seen this proven in California, Texas, North Carolina and Massachusetts. A strong and long-term commitment to education at­ tracts industry and jobs of the best kind. Besides providing an attraction for new industry, education is a necessary investment for our existing businesses, an investment that will ensure a steady supply of capable new workers and managers for our com ­ panies. The bottom-line benefit makes i t a matter of self-interest for any company. That's why it's not really a matter of boasting for me to tell you about Rainier Bancorporati o n ' s su pport for busi ness schools and higher education . I truly believe it's in the interest of this company and its stockholders to make these kinds of invest­ ments. CoinCidentally, such investments also work toward the common, long -term, and moral goal of society - an invisible hand, perhaps, that directs us toward the common good . For the record, we have made commit­ ments to expend well over one and a half a million dollars to support business-related professorships and other programs at vari­ ous universities in our state. We offer financial support to the Independent Col­ leges of Washington, as well as lending them the fine mind of John Mangels, the president of this enterprise, who serves on their association's board . We give time and money to the community colleges around the state; in fact, virtually every senior officer in our executive office is involved in education . Finally, we have a Merit SCholarship program which offers full-tuition scholarships each year to be used at a ny college in the state. I am pleased that some of those scholars have wisely chosen to spend those funds on tuition at Pacific Lutheran U niversity. So while we acknowledge the social re­ sponsibility of our actions, it's clearly not a case of pure altruism, either. It's an invest­ ment that provides a real return . Passing a strong economic base from one generation to another is a great and moral task . Education is a key component of that foundation. And I believe that investment and involvement in education are the first steps toward economic development, that support of education serves both short-term self-interest and the long-term common good . "And they said, 'Let us rise up and build. ' So they strengthened their hands for this good work . " - Nehemiah 2 : 1 8

prompt CPR Results In Life Saved At PLU; Garrett, Nordgren Honored Citizen CPR (cardiopulminary re­ suscitation) train ing has resulted in thousands of lives saved since widespread tra ining began some 20 years ago. One of those lives belongs to E m m a Celms, 62, a long -time part-time departmental assista nt employed at PLU 's Mort­ vedt Library. Last Nov. 22, shortly after a rriv­ i ng for work in the morni ng , M rs . Celms collapsed with what was later diag nosed as a cardiac a rrest ( h eart attack). Within a couple of mi nutes, Ron Garrett, PLU director of cam pus safety, had been called and was at her side. As he began CPR diagnosis and resuscitation procedures, the lib­ rary's media services assistant, Layne Nordgren, identified h i m ­ self as being CPR-trained and Garrett authorized his assistance. O n A p r i l 2 5 , G a r r ett a n d Nordgren were honored at a spe­ cial cam pus ceremony. They re­ ceived Certificates of Merit from the American Red Cross, a Certifi­ cate of Appreciation from the Parkland Fire Department, a Citi­ zen Lifesaver Certificate from Emergency Medical Services, and letters from Gov. John Spell man and Rep. Norm Dicks. Reflecting on the honors, Gar­ rett said, "It seems like a lot offuss made over three or four minutes of effort that seemed to be over as soon as it began . " He added, "No big deal," and then corrected h imself. More seri­ ously he said, "I know it is a big deal for Emma and her family. She's here now because we were there then . " Garrett recalled that within a couple of minutes after he and Nordgren began CPR, the Park-

land Fire department personnel were on hand to take over, and that a few more minutes later paramedics from Good Samaritan Hospital arrived 'with the ambu­ lance. Mrs. Celms recovered and re­ turned to work in February "She is now jogging 4-5 miles a day , " Garrett observed . Not only is the Tacoma - Pierce Cou nty com m u nity fortunate to have, a n d willing to fund, excep­ tional emergency programs, PLU is also Uncommonly fortunate to have an active first-aid and CPR training prog ra m . First-aid has been offered for years, and Gar­ rett started CPR classes shortly after he was hired in June 1 98 3 . PLU's designated safety officer, General Services d irector Howard Vedell, keeps records of persons trained, and works d iligently to keep four or five people with appropriate training in each build ­ i ng o r sectio n . A second life was saved in similar fashion on the PLU ca m pus March 28 . David Gerald of Tacoma col­ lapsed while jogging on the PLU track. A student, Jay Abbott, relied on Boy Scout first-aid training to assist Gerald until Cam pus Safety personnel arrived . Coincidentally, Gerald is the stepbrother of 1 97 3 PLU a l u m n us Darel Roa , now of Seattle.

Wisdom of the change, man­ dated by a n analysis of the area radio market, is illustrated by the ra pid growth in listenership and greater reg ional visibility, Neeb i ndicated This past month the station's third on-air fund d rive raised $42 ,200 from over 1 ,200 con­ tri butors, a 55 percent i ncrease over the $ 2 7 ,000 raised last November from 722 patrons The November drive, only one month after the format change, h ad dou bled the $ 1 3,327 received from 382 subscribers the previous February, station director of de­ velopment Dean Zuch reported . During the past several yea rs the station has made g reat strides in expa nding its potential listener­ ship Originally at 10 watts of power in the '60's and at 40,000 watts during most of the 70's, the station is now the most powerful non -com mercial station north of San Francisco at 1 00,000 watts. A more effective tra nsmitter on Kit­ sa p Peninsula ma kes possible po­ tential listenership, at least in " p o c k e t s , " from Va ncouver, Wash , to Vancouver, B . C . The station is installing four translators this summer to im­ prove the signal in several more difficult geographic areas, particu­ la rly in the vicin ities of Aberdeen, Longview, South Bend and Cen ­ tra lia . In addition to jazz, the station continues to featu re news and public affairs, both locally pro­ duced and from the National Public Radio network , FM 88 picks up the N PR sig nal from the Westar IV satellite 22,500 miles above the equator, The KPLU -FM satellite dish is located nea r the new Rieke Sci­ ence Center on lower campus. FM 88's o n - a i r jazz hosts, Cha rles Tomaras and Dale Bun­ d ra nt , h ave created a format sound that is rapidly gaining a wider audience, Tomaras, who has been with the station for a year, is credited with an "u nwavering in­ stinct for surviva l , " according to Paul de Barros of The Weekly in Seattle. Tomaras a n d Bundrant feature a balance of fusion, traditional be­ bop, big band and contemporary jazz T o m a ras a lso got KPL U - F M selected a s a reporti ng station for Radio & Records, a trade tabloid that tracks plaYli sts. This mea ns that for the first time the trades have an accu rate readout of what's being played in the North­ west, and FM 88 will get much better service and respect from record companies

Commun ity visibility is hig h . The station rece ntly CO- hosted a Count Basie Orchestra concert in Seattle and will conduct a tour to the Monterey (Calif. ) Jazz Festival this summer. News director Dave Klein and other staffers a re found where news is happening in the Puget Sou nd area. Promotional messages a re seen regularly on area billboa rds and transit buses. The station is also maintaining professional visibility. Neeb was recently elected secretary of the 1 1 - member Washington Educa­ tional Network and is active in NPR and Religious Broadcasting Associ­ ation circles . PLU a l u mnus Pau l Hartman '67, one of the station's ea rly stalwarts, is the new WEN president He currently serves as manager of KYVE-TV in Yakima. Neeb and Hartma n also chair the respective radio and TV councils within the Network.

14 The Pres ident

tJL.. 4 ? A Ta le of Th ree Short Stories ; Do The Job; Drea m And Pay The Price; And Even In Adversity, Conti n u e To Care Editor's note: The following remarks were deli­ vered by PLU PresJdent Dr. William O. Rieke at PLU 's Spring Commencement exerdses May 20.

Today we mark the high point of the academic year. Commencement is that uni­ quetime of simultaneously mixed endings of one period of our lives and the beginni ng of another - the paradox of atone time closing an era and opening the next. Not only for these reasons, but because the position of President is one so uniquely privileged - the President must, simply mustsay something. You note I said the position of President was privileged - not a lways pleasant, certainly seldom placid - but always and intensely privileged. Perhaps no other position in the entire U niversity provides as much oppor­ tunity - each and every year - to witness and experience so much joy and sorrow, so great victory and dark despair, so intense conviction and ambivalence, or such stinging criticism . In no other position can such a great panoply of human ability, emotion and skill in so many different kinds of persons be viewed as from the position of President. If the President cares even a little about this privilege he will alternately rejoice and hurt, exult and despair, but he will always want to share, to reach out, to teach a little to those he admires, for from that position of privilege there Is something to be taught. Those who know this President know he most often teaches by way of telli ng stories - today is no exception. And so my comments to the Spring 1 984 graduates, families and friends, and to the entire University community, come this afternoon under the title of "A Tale of Three Short, Very Short, Stories. " How very proud I a m of you, the graduates, of your talents, your efforts and your persons I SO also I am proud of a nd g rateful to all who helped you among family and friends and this U niversity wh ich with growing strength each year not only provides your degree but will continue to enhance the value of that degree as the University's ability and reputation constantly enlarge. Some of you graduates already have employment a nd soon, in one fashion or another, all of you will be engaged in meaningful. hopefully remunerated, activity. Sooner or later you will have a job. SO I tell you the first short story: a true story from the life of this speaker who, many years ago at a great state university, not only got a job, but got his first administrative job. He had much to learn as an academic adminis­ trator and, frankly, he didn't like much of what he was learning. It was stressful. often u npleasant, a nd not what he had thought it would be. And so he complained - first to his wife, who offered sympathy, but then to his mother, a mother who had barely finished h igh school. Could she offe r good counsel to a son with a doctor's deg ree who was embroiled in the problems of academic administration with other persons holding doctor's degrees. She did. Her son never will forget her response to his whining com­ plaints. Looking 10 'ngly but firmly at him, she �id, "SOn , you wantedthe job, you gOtthe

job, now dothe job!" It was notthe response he either wanted or then particula rly ap­ preciated, but it taught him much of the need for staying power - staying with tasks that are required even when feelings of unimportance or disappointment sweep over one. You wanted the job, you got the job, now do the job! Stay with it. But to stay with it each of us must d ream dreams - have goals, aspirations, hopes, directions for our job. Dreams are essential to inspiration . But dreams are empty shadows unless we are willing to pay the price the dreams imply . And so my second short story derives from one who dreamed a dream and paid the price exactly 57 years ago to this very day and even hour. On May 20, 1 92 7 Charles R. Lindbergh was enroute in the "Spirit of St. Louis" on the first transatlantic flight i n history. New York t o Paris i n 33% hours - a great dream accomplished, and many plaudits, recognitions a nd honors came to him because of it. But there also was a price to be paid - not only at the front end in terms of training and diSCipline, but even more so afterward, when h is worldwide notoriety led to the tragic kidnapping of his two-year-Old son, criticism from the Presi­ dent of the U nited States for his outspoken statements about the g rowing th reat of German air power, resignation of his Air Force comm ission and other similar posts. Yet. through them all, he remained positive, supporting both family and government and working for world peace. Dream dreams, but not unless you are willing to pay the price. Do the job, dream and pay the price - but the third story is most important. Just three days ago, Pastor Ron Vignec brought three visitors from Japan to my office to be introduced . I knew that they, together with a translator, were in the U nited States working and speaking for world peace, particularly as it is made more urgent by the awesome

destruction potential of nuclear arms. More than that I did not know. Two of the visitors were Japanese pastors and the third was a 65 -year-old woman, M rs. Kayako Nakanishi. She spoke absol utely no English - a nd at that was certainly more fluent in our tongue than I in Japanese. Suddenly, during the pleasantries of what I had understood to be a courtesy cal l , one of the pastors told me that M rs. Nakanishi was a survivor of the August 6, 1 945 Hiroshima atomic bomb. The news was like a bomb bursting in my head. I was only 14 years old at the time, but from that day on I read, studied and wondered about atomic power, For more than 1 7 years, after completing my education, I had taught courses in radiation biology, used a variety of nuclear agents ­ radioactive isotopes - in my own research, and observed many people suffering the side effects of acute radiation poisoning as­ sociated with cancer therapy. But never had I seen a living h uman with chronic radiation poisoning, let alone a human survivor of the world's first use of radioactive power against h umankind, The physician/scientist couldn't be sup­ pressed in me, and my faceflushed as I broug ht to full power all sensors, all visual. audio and tactile scanners to see what this remarkable woman could teach me What I sought. you see, were physical signs of chronic radiation poisoning, Indeed. as I later learned by reading what had been translated from her own accounts of her experiences. she had many of the signs and symptoms of chroniC radiation poisoning, But the lesson to be learned was not to be obtained by the physician/SCientist in me, No, not all. The real lesson which Mrs, Nakanishi had to teach was a human lesson , Hear her words as she says "As Jesus took the sin of man and died on the cross, I must, having become a victim of the bomb, carry the terrible experiences to others, This m isson of life has become mine, If I didn't have faith I would (/ike many victi ms) use my condition to get money for myself or curse the world around me and live only a negative lifestyle, However, God has g iven me the mission, as one who has had terrible experi ­ ences to shout . . . 'Peace' and to take a ' positive position towards making world peace , " A powerful story! Mrs , Nakanishi had not asked for her job. had not dreamed a dream , but had paid a horrjble price. Yet. somehow. she continued to care. She had not g iven up on huma nkind, for she knew that life is neither the greatest good - her life had in many ways been horrible; nor was death the the g reatest of eVil - she knew her faith would see her beyond death's pale, But continuing to care for all God's creation and remaining positive i n the face of adversity was what really mattered , A tale of three short, very short. stories : do the job; dream and pay the price; and. even in adversity. continue to care, God bless you and this great U niversity in the years ahead!

One of the simplest (and oldestl methods of making a deferred charitable gift is the charitable gift annuity. Until recently, PlU used the ALC Foundation to set up such arrangements Now, after satisfying legal requirements for the state of Washington, the University can issue its own gift annuities A gift annuity combines gift and invest­ ment. so that in exchange for cash, market­ able securities, or real estate, PLU will guarantee a lifetime income to a donor and/or another beneficiary Assume Mr. Smith , age 70, wishes to establish a gift annuity with PlU . He wishes to fund this annuity with $1 0,000 Here is what happens: • he receives an immediate charitable contribution deduction of over $2,500. • he will receive a yearly i ncome of $780 (7.8%) • ofthe $780, over $500 will be tax-free income. • he is free from management and i nvest­ ment worries. • eventually, he will be benefitting Pacific Lutheran University.

I was thinking the other day that PlU is expensive In fact, it is nearly the most expensive u niversity supported by the American Lutheran Church synod Even with the 3 . 8 percent discount for a full time student next year, 1 984-85 , we can expect to spend around $8,500 for tuition, room and board. To satisfy my curiosity, I did some research I found out that PLU is kept alive by financial support. In fact, PLU is dependent on large amounts of financial support from alumni and corporations. Our tuition only covers 80 percent of our education expenses In other words, if it weren't for alumni and corpora­ tion support we would be spending around $10,500 a yea r for our education. And when our tuition goes down , such as next year, the amount of financial support must go up to balance the budget. Along with this tuition break, 70 percent of us receive substantial financial aid, some of which comes out of the pocket of PLU supporters. On top of tuition cuts and granting financial aid, PLU is putting up needed science facilities and plans a new fine arts complex. And for those who believe in "no pain no gain," a new fitness facility with improved equipment is being constructed behind Memorial Gym, open for use next year. These complexes are not being paid for by ou r tu ition, yet we will benefit the most. Again, PLU supporters are giving generously so we may enjoy the advantages.

Nine starters return from a un it ranked fourth nationally against . the rush. Key stop squad fig ures include senior deep backs Don Coltom and Tom Hayes, plus j u n ior tackls Tim Shanno n . Coltom was a second team NAIA All-American, while Shannon received honorable mention All-American attention. Hayes earned NAIA defensive play­ er of the game accolades in the championship contest.

For the defending Northwest conference cha mpions, who were 9-3 last year, senior guard Bruce Larson and senior end Randy Ham­ lin head the offensive line, which returns five starters. Senior option quarterback Jeff Shumake, who rushed for 1 0. 7 yards per carry last year in a backup role, will duel with highly touted freshman Jeff Yar­ nell for the signal-calling position. Lute run ning backs, while inex­ perienced, should be faster than their predecessors. J u n ior Jud Kei m, sophomore Kevin Johnson, and sophomore Greg Kennedy are sprint relay performers in track.

Lute Pri d e : ReQ u i res Lute Praye r By Rich Hamlin president, Alumni Association As your new Alumn i Association president I would like to share a few personal reflections on Pacific Lutheran University. But fi rst let me say I consider it a privilege to serve the University which has g iven me much . Having been in public education these past 26 years, I believe I can make some valid statements reflectlng the Quality of the academ ic program offered at PLU . The excellence of the University can be ranked with the best in the nation . We have produced business leaders, doctors, educators, engineers and others who have been recognized by their peers as tops in their field of endeavor - this is not merely happenstance. It is not by chance that we have a distinguished music department. It is not by chance that we have an outstanding athletic progra m . It Is not by chance that we have received national recognition for our ar­ chitectura design for the future music and fine arts center to be built on campus. It is not by chance that the coming school year will see the opening of our new Science Center. All this and more have come about through much prayer and careful leadership. It is a leadership dedicated to this institution we call Pacific Lutheran University. We, as PLU alu mnus, parents, and friends, can be proud of the University's achievements u nder the gifted leadership of Dr. William Rieke and his talented staff. However, I personally have a g reat concern for the Ch ristian direction of Pacific Lutheran University. We know that scholarshi p and the pursuit of higher learning has always been our goal, but what about "our obligation to confront liberally educated men and women with the challenges of Christian faith and to instill in them a true sense of vocation ? " (PLU Objectives, adopted 1963) As a result of the continual growth of PLU,

we, as Ch ristian people must go forth to minister the Spirit. We each - if we take the name of Jesus - must accept our vocation fervently. That vocation is not how we put bread on the table but rather what we a re doing to share the Good News. We must min ister reality. If we give a verse about peace, we are ministering shadow. But if we give peace we are min istering the rea l thing You do not say to a starving man, "God bless you " and wa lk on, you must fi rst min ister to his hu nger and then to his soul To give the rea lity is possible if we follow the Spirit Our football coach at PlU has said it many times but more importantly he has lived a verse which we Christia ns are to model . " let y our light sh ine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in hea e n . " Matt. 5 : 1 6. As alumni, w e need to promote and encourage potential students of h igh academic sta nding a nd high morals to attend PLU . As PLU alu mni, we need to reflect to our young people our outward faith, our Chris­ tian love and the confidence of ou r convic­ tio ns. With all of the worldly challenges which face our graduates today, it is im perative that we, university staff a nd alumni, equip stu­ dents with the spiritual knowledge and faith that PLU was founded u pon We can and should be proud to be Lutes . Let us have the year 1 984-1 985 be a great yea r for the Alumni Association. Not o n ly do we need to continue with our financial su ppo rt but we must pray for the spiritual growth and direction of our University An exciting life of excellence awaits us, and it can begin right now! The admonition of the apostle Pau l in ColOSSians 3 : 1 7, is to the point "And whatev­ er you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through H i m . " No greater standard for excellence can be found any­ where.

we must guard against our University be­ coming secular and emancipated from the authority of the Word of God - the very basis on which PLU was founded . ' 'The university believes the essence of Christianity to be personal faith in God as Creator and Redeemer, and it believes that such faith bam of the Holy Spirit generates integrative power capable of guiding human beings to illuminating perspectives and worthy purposes The University community confesses the faith that the ultimate mean­ ing and purooses of human life are to be discovered in the person and work ofJesus Christ " (Objectives, 1963

I challeng e the Alumni, students and faculty i n sharing Christian i nSights for which Pacific luthera n University is and was bu ilt upon I recognize that PLU is not a ch urch but nevertheless it should i nherit and reta in many of the church's liabilities. I believe that PLU can be what the church has always been, the conscience of society. The University is the most honorable and the least corrupt institution in American life. It is, with the ch u rch, the institution that has, through all of our history, served or tried to serve the interests of the whole of manki nd and the interests of truth. No other institu­ tion can perform the functions which the University performs, no other can fill the place which it has long filled with such intelligence and moral influence. This state­ ment can be made equally to include state and private universities. So wherein lies the difference? Did not our fou nding fathers, and all who have followed in the setting of policy and objectives, set forth the very difference which was to set Pacific Lutheran University apart from other institutions of higher learning. I believe the difference is stated clearly in the Objectives of the Univer­ sity, " Pacific Lutheran University is a com­ munity of professing Christian scholars dedi­ cated to a philosophy of liberal education . " We need Ch ristian pastors i n the pulpit, who are preaching the Word of God. Then

g ma 9S most g lorious ach-eve ent U, S, National Security Policy Does Not Include Arms Race Dr Fredrick Wikner

By Judy Davis

Dr Fredrick Wikner '52, one of the nation's authorities on nationa l secu rity technology and policy, says "there is no spiraling arms race. " "Contrary to popu lar opinion, the retaliat­ ory strength of the Un ited States has not continually escalated; in fact, the U S has, of its own volition , unilaterally decreased its stockpile of nuclear weapons since the early 1 960's" he said. "The total megatonnage of US nuclear weapons is at its lowest level i n 25 yea rs:' emphasized the security consultant to pri­ vate firms and government agencies To confirm his statements about the fallacy of the arms race, Dr. Wikner referred to a series of charts that major newspapers have been unwilling to publish - even though they are based on factual data . Dr. Wikner went on to pOint out that the Soviet Union, in contrast to the U nited States "has continued to increase its stockpile of nuclear wea pons and missiles. " The distingu ished, six-foot-five native of Hoquia m, Wash , discussed national security issues during a recent stopover in Tacoma while en route to an arms control seminar in California . During his 17-year career, Dr Wikner has been active in U S and Allied defense and secu rity affairs, both as a government official and as a consultant His positions have covered all aspects of defense matters , from nuclea r weapons to arms control, intelli­ gence, improved conventional forces and modern revolutionary warfare. He has held the hig hest civilian position in the Defense Nuclea r Agency While in Tacoma, Dr. Wikner made a nostalgic visit to PLU . He met briefly with PLU President Dr. Willia m 0 Rieke, a former classmate, and took a stroll past the science building where he spent many hours study­ ing physics and mathematics. He is a summa cu m laude graduate of PLU. Dr. Wikner met his wife, the former June Ma rie Nysteen '52, while attending PLU . She is now vice- president and secretary of their consulting firm in Bethesda, MD. The Wikners are parents of th ree grown ch ildren. Followi ng his graduation from PLU , Dr. Wikner attended the U niversity of California at Berkeley where he received a Ph.D in physics. He then began designing nuclear reactors "that are 99 percent safe. After all. we scientist didn't want to kill ourselvesl" Dr. Wikner beca me enmeshed in a career in national secu rity technology and defense in an effort to answer the question, "How can we deter war and keep from destroying ourselves?" Earlier in his ca reer, he served as scientific and tech nical adviser on General Creighton

W. Abrams' personal staff in Saigon in 1 9681 969. He established the Net and Technical Assessment offices for Secretary of Defense Melvin La ird and was their first director. Following these assig nments, he was the first di rector of the Department of Defense's SALT Task Force. Since leaving gove rnment, he has di rected major force modernization studies concerned with U S and Allied forces in Europe and Korea. Using this vast knowledge and experience, he has searched out ways applied science can be used as a deterrent to wa r and as a sou rce of retaliatory military power that is the u lti mate means for preventing wars. From his vantage point. Dr. Wikner con­ tends no reasonable world leader would start a nuclea r war. "Nonetheless, " he cautioned, "we must have enough retaliatory strength to protect our country from the 'downside risk' that a nuclear attack might occur . ' " " That a rgu ment becomes, 'What is reta I iat­ ory and how much is enough?' " Dr. Wikner says military strength is an important consideration in our relationship with the Soviet Union "because it is the ' principal basis for defi ning limited joint relationships, " "The Soviet Union understands military might It controls its people through a multitude of techniques all derived from the apparatus of state power, " Dr. Wikner pointed out. "In reality, there are irreconcilable differences between the Soviet U nion and the U nited States; the USSR is never going to ag ree to a social and political structure like our democracy Soviet citizens

will never be allowed the liberties and free institutions in their political structure that we have i n our democracy " He hastened to add that accepting these differences does not preclude sea rching out ways countries with different political view­ points can work together He cautioned, "We must not expect a rms agreements to serve as a substitute for our own unilateral action in our defense . We must take care of our own national security needs first while searching out a reas for ag reement that are in our mutual self­ interest " In h is view, a n area of mutual benefit was in the ba nning of n uclear tests in the atmos­ phere "The Russians don't like radioactive fa llout any more than we do," he declared. As a security consultant, Dr. Wikner travels about 180 days out of the yea r He visits all countries with which the United States has significant mutual secu rity interests, primari­ ly the NATO allia nce nations He is convinced the greatest issue of the 20th century is how to avoid another devastating world war Dr. Wi kner admonished Americans to "get rid of the hysteria surrou nding nuclear power and recog nize it as a public servant Our limited defensive forces are humanity's most glorious achievement - l iberty and free institutions. These exist in the Western world, and most of all, they are at their best i n the United States." H e concluded, "The U nited States is the most fabulous place i n the world - it's institutions are very precious and worth defending "

Young, one of the origin a l group, was basically responsible for ma king Mayfest what it is today. But for more than half of its history, the group had to identify itself as "folk games" or "folk a rt," beca use dancing was forbidden on campus In 1 950 Young had convinced some of the most popular, athletic guys to be in Mayfest. and men have been a part of the group since. But no closed positions, lifts, or anyth ing sign ifying danc­ ing was allowed for ma ny years In 1 966 Sca ndinavian costu mes were added, and the group began to e m p h a s i ze Sc a n d i n a v i a n da nces.

PLU Inaugurates Science Studies program for Minority H.S. Students MESA, a national program that encourages minority students to consider science-related careers, has been expanded to Tacoma according to local project directo� Amadeo Tiam. Tia m , the director of minority affairs at PLU, said that a major goal of the program is to acquaint students with opportunities in the sciences and mathematics early enoug h fo r t h e m to beg i n academic preparations for them .

studies and projects for the com­ ing year will be suggested . "MESA seeks to enco u rage minority students to acquire the academic skills they need to major in mathematics, eng ineering or the physical sciences at a universi ­ ty, " Tiam said. Both present and future fund­ ing is administered through the MESA Regional Center at the U n ­ iversity of Washington. Future monies are expected from bo�h the state and private resources. Initial discussion on MESA at PLU began after Phillip Miner, PLU's director of school relations, was twice successful in securing fund­ ing from Honeywell Inc for two e n g i n e e r i n g w o r k s h o ps fo r minority high school youth Sub­ sequently appointed to the MESA advisory committee at the U niver­ sity of Wash ington, he advocated PLU's involvement in MESA expan­ sion plans. According to Tiam, two addi­ tional high schools will be added to the program during the coming year. Oneida Battle is the program coordinator at PLU. For more information, call 535-7195.

New Oslo, PLU Agreement Aids Norwegion Busi ness Stude nts Norwegian business students will benefit from a new agreement formalized this summer between the Oslo College of Business and Economics and the PLU School of Business Administration. Graduates of the Oslo school ( H an delsgymnasiuml can com­ plete requirements for a bachelor of business administration degree at PLU in one year An additional one year and summer could Qual­ ify them for an MBA Details of the agreement were finalized this summer following a two-month visit to PLU by Johan­ nes Overeng, rector (principall of the Oslo school. He had previously worked with PLU registrar Charles Nelson during Nelson 's recent visits to Norway. Norwegian students will have the added advantage of receiving assistance from a state loan fund

the Northwest also made an im­ pact on Overing. "In Tacoma alone, there are 200 members of Nordenslaget' " he said with as­ tonishment Overeng hopes the exchange will expand to bring PLU students to Norway, initially by offering an Interim course at his school . Gundar King, dean of the PLU School of Busi ness Administration, added, "The Norwegian students are high Quality students. Their presence here adds to the Quality of our program and contri butes to the emphasis on international re­ lationships in our program "

P,LU Among Successful Institutions Evaluated In McGrath Nationwide study

Nordic Night Gala Passes $25,000 Goa l

"At Pacific Lutheran U niversity. a prominent factor in building and sustaining morale and commitment was exhibited in the administrative yet personal actions of the provost and the president " The statement was a part of a narrative in 5uccessfu/ lnstitutions of H;gher Educat;on . a new report by Dr Earl J McGrath and Dr Robert S Webber, prepa red for the Murdock Charitable Trust of Vancouver, Wash. McGrath is chairman of University AdviSOry Councils at Western Interna­ tional University in Phoenix, Ariz. The report evaluates 1 5 "typical" small colleges nationwide whose programs. fiscal condition, administration and constituencies were known to be exemplary, according to McGrath The report consistently ranked PLU in the top third of the 1 5 schools in various statistical tables measuring such characteristics as innovation, democratic governance, self study and planning. advancing knowledge, and meeting local needs McGrath chose to single out PLU in a category defined as "institutional espirit " "Top administrators listen for good faculty ideas, weave ideas of the provost and president into (informall conversations, and let it work into the system." McGrath reported "Obviously these experiences augment the feeling of faculty involvement in the discussion of current issues and of any plans the administration may have for future development." he added. McGrath also pointed to encouragement of creative activity throughout the ranks and strong campus participation in annual and capital fund campaigns as evidence of unity and excellence.

More than $25,000, earmarked for the planned Scandinavian Cui· tural Center at PLU, was raised during an immensely successful Nordic Night gala in June. The event. sponsored by the PLU Scandinavian Cultural Council and Troll Club at the new Tacoma­ Sheraton Hotel, was attended by 41 6 guests Accordionist Myron Floren of the Lawrence Welk Orchestra was the featured performer. Among the several hundred items sold during live and silent auctions were two tickets to SCan­ dinavia via Scandinavian Airlines, a flight over Puget Sound, a boat trip to Orcas Island and SCandina­ vian crafts and memorabilia of all kinds. It was the Council's first major fund-raiser. Plans are currently underway for another fund-rais­ ing activity next year.

because PLU's business school is accredited by the American As­ sembly of Collegiate Schools of Business, OVereng indicated. His school also offers scholarships to students planning study in the US OVereng expl ai ned that the Handelsgymnasium is the only business school in Norway that has both a high school and university level courses. "One of the reasons Norwegian students study abroad is that domestic colleges and universities do not have sufficient capacity, " Overeng said. Six thousand high Quality Norwegian students are studying abroad this year Almost a third are in the U nited States even though the dollar exchange rate for them presently is very unfavorable 65 percent more than four years ago. "In addition, Norway has always attached importance to contact with other countries in matters relating to cultural and education­ al policy as well as in international affairs at large," he added. Overeng continued, "I think our students at PlU are in a fortunate position. This university has a 'human' size in the sense that students do not get lost in a giant organization . I don't think you will find the synthesis of academic performance and care many other places. " PLU's Scandinavian heritage and the numbers of Scandinavians in -

Pioneer Biologist Shares

Futu re PLU Biology Students Will Benefit From Gift Annuity A n i n t e r n a t i o n a lly-known biologist whose pioneering field work in Washington State blazed a path for thousands of colleagues has established a cha ritable gift annuity at Pacific Lutheran Univer­ sity that will benefit future genera ations of biology students He is Dr. James R. Slater, who headed the University of Puget SOund biology department from 1918 to 1 951 and continued to teach at UPS part·time until 1 968. The annuity adds significantly to PLU's Irene Creso Scholarship, named in honor of one of Slater's prize pupils and colleagues, now also retired after a long teaching career at UPS and PLU. At age 94, Slater remains active in his profession . At least once a week he takes a bus from his North Tacoma home to PLU to work on his projects in the biology department or at Mortvedt Lib·

rary. He is collaborating with Dr Creso on several publications, in­ cluding keys to Washington State animals, plants, amphibians and reptiles, and early state naturalists. In addition to his scores of publications, Slater has collected specimens that have been studied on all of the world's continents Many of his specimens will be displayed in a museum room in the new William O. Rieke Science Center at PLU . Slater considers PLU President Rieke as a "grand student." since his student. Dr. Creso, was Dr. Rieke'S teacher He also believes it is important that students know of the volum­ ninous body of research provided to scholars by Washington State's pi o n e e r b i o l og ists For that reason, PLU plans a memorial frame near the biology depart­ ment in the Rieke Science Center

which will feature six noteworthy pioneer Pacific Northwest biolog­ ists, including Slater and Creso.

Being the best ,•• can be Nursing Professor Profiles A Microcosm Of A Graduating Class Editor's note · As one watches some 800 black-robed graduates receive their degrees from PL U each year. it is easy to see them as homogenous and forget the indi­ vidual dramas each represents In a presentation to some 40 sum­ mer nursing grads. Professor Lin­ da Olson vividlV described some of those individuals - their efforts. their hardships and their dreams Professor Olson is beginning her 18th year on the PL U nursing faculty

By Linda Olson

This g raduating class is unique and diverse in many ways Let me share with you some of the uniqueness and diversity that is represented here. Among the graduates are mothers. fathers. single parents. g randmothers. in­ dividuals in the military service and Viet Nam veterans. Several of you are Licensed Practica l N u rses . Those who are parents have chil­ dren that range in age from one month to 37 years. One graduate has 1 2 children. aged 3-23. and 2 g randchildren. Another graduate raised her own family of three and then adopted and is raising three other children, one who is biracial, and one who is from the Philip­ pines. Two others have grown families. One graduate is a com­ petitive female weight lifter and another is a twin. Many have worked part time and some have worked almost full time while g oing to school . Quite a few of you have been active in the PLU student nursing organization; one serving as president Others also have been officers and several went to the State of Washington Associated N u rs i n g Student· s Convention i n Spokane. Still others of you have been active in other PLU student organizations and have served as resident assistants in the dormitories. At least two graduates cared for a School of Nursing secreta ry's son while he was hospitalized and he a nd his mother proclaimed you as very caring n u rses with a fantastic bedside manner. The range of your racial and eth nic backgrounds i n c l u d es . black. Pacific Islands. and Asia. with individuals from Samoa. Korea. and Estonia . Among your group are members who are fluent in Estonian, Italian. Japanese. Ko­ rean, Samoan. and Swedish . Your

religious preferences range from Lutheran and other Protestant denominations, includ ing Seventh Day Adve ntist , C a t h o l i c a n d others. A number of you have musical ability and have sung in the PLU Concert C hoir or University sing­ ers. Some g raduates have earned degrees in other areas, such as philosophy, psychology, and nut­ rition . One has a baccalaureate degree from the Karolinska Insti­ tute in Sweden, where she com­ p leted he r premedical studies more than 30 years ago Many students have attended two, three, four and even five other colleges and universities - a real testament to your continued pur­ suit of you r goals Th ree of you have the distinction of g raduating summa cum laude, having earned a 3 9 cumulative g rade poi n t average You can see that you are, i n ­ deed, a lively, active, talented, diverse group Excellence refers to any thing highly laudable, meritorious or virtuous i n persons The recent Olympics have given us many examples that excellence is not limited to persons of a particular sex, race, religion, intelligence. national origin, or any other attri­ bute. And, excellence is not always winning the gold medal or break­ ing a record . Excellence is trying one's best; it may even be exemp­ lified by g race in defeat An Olymp­ ic silver medalist swi m mer said. "I just want to walk away and look in the mirror and know I gave every­ thing I had . " Sometimes when we try hard to be the best we can be we make a m istake or fail. We can be very hard on ourselves and may be embarrassed, ashamed or feel defeated if we fall short of the high standards we have set for ourselves. Yet, despite our fervent desire and efforts, no one expects us to be perfect, least of all God . To err is human. Perhaps success is getting up once more tha n you fall. We are fallible, we all know that only too well. We strive to accept others, but sometimes have diffi­ culty accepting ourselves when we do less than our best. or when our best does not seem to be adequate to the task and cir­ cumstances. I believe that it is our responsibility to learn from our mistakes, to grow as a result of them.

Our responsiblity is to try to understa nd , to accept. to value and love ourselves as well as others. It is our challenge to try to make some sense out of our own lives and struggles as well as those of others. It is given to us as human beings to love, work, play, learn, share, and care for one another as well as to question and seek answers to ulti mate ques­ tions of value, life, and death . As nu rses, we are privileged to learn about the excellence, a nd sometimes also the meanness of the human spirit with our patients and clients as they deal with all manner of difficulties from chron­ ic illness, emotional and physical pain, disfigurement to death. As nurses, we are privileged to share in all the intense emotions of other human beings as they strive to achieve physical, mental and spiritual well ness, and as they attempt to deal with birth, illness, life and death. It is doubtful that you and I will win Olympic gold medals. H owev­ er, there is another sphere of excellence toward which we can all strive and which we can all achieve. I am referring to excellence of character, of the human spirit and will. Examples are the excellence of Martin Luther King and of Mother Teresa . We can all develop and encourage excellence of the h u m a n spi rit as i n d i v i d u a l s , fa m i l i e s , c o m m u n ities a n d societies strive for huma ne living conditions phYSically, mentally, emotionally, socially, economically and politically There were even brief glimpses of this sort of excellence in the recent Olympics One example was when a basketball player left the victory stand to drape her g old medal round the neck of her twi n sister w h o had been cut during training camp. Another was when a swim mer gave her backstroke gold medal to her younger broth­ er, who is paralyzed from the waist down after an auto accident Nursing, more than many profes­ sions : offers opportunities to ex­ ercise this kind of excellence. You graduates know a good deal about motivation, persever­ ance, dedication, being the best you can be. Individuals in this g roup have overcome many hur­ dles during your baccalaureate nursing education. Among the hurdles are the stresses and de­ mands of marriage and fam i ly

responsibilitiies. the birth of a baby, financial difficulties, divorce, absence from one's family memb­ ers and native cultu re, serious and terminal illness in one's family, and personal illness including su rgery and radiation therapy Yet. you are here today. You have plans to continue to develop you r talents and to serve in a variety of ways in the future . You plan to work in a variety of nursing specialities : ped iatrics . labor and delivery. emergency room , i ntensive care. coronary care, neonatal intensi e care, and nursing in the Navv. among oth­ ers. Individuals ave expressed interest in research and in becom ­ ing a nurse-anesthetist One has poken of returning to Samoa to assist her people in their health care Another will be going into the Peace Corps. One IS getting married in Hawaii next Tuesday. so she is not with us today. Another may continue at PLU. earning the final credits for a degree in m usic and art. One hopes to combine her private practice in dietetics with her nursing knowledge. We faculty welcome you to our profession of nursing - as you have been learning, it is demand­ ing. challenging. difficult. thought and g rowth provoking. fascinating and rewarding Nursing has a proud history of service. intellec­ tual g rowth, and caring. Now and in the future it will be increasingly sophisticated in technology as well as presenting incredibly difficult moral and ethical dilemmas. You have completed a challenging cur­ riculum designed to confront you with the nursing and health care needs of today a nd tomorrow. You are ready to carry on a tradition of excellence and com­ passion. We. your faculty. salute you as new colleagues who will lead the way to the continued develop­ ment of nursing and health care in the 2 1 st century. One of the distinct advantages of teaching and learning at PLU is that faculty and students can come to know one another as i ndividuals in an atmosphere that is com mitted to quality education and the full development of the person. It is now our pleasure to embrace you in a profession where your skill. intelligence, com passion, a n d spirit can continue to develop and be of service to mankind .

The electi on of H u n g a r i a n Bishop Zoltan Kaldy as the new president of the Lutheran World Federation last July was controv­ ersial . "But if there were any fears as to the direction of his leader­ ship, they were allayed in my mind by what he said, " recalls Rev. Harvey Neufeld. Rev. Neufeld, executive director of the Collegium and Church Rela­ tions at the Pacific Lutheran Un­ iversity, attended the LWF Assem­ bly in Budapest "Kaldy's major add ress w a s m a g n i f i ce n t , " N e u feld said Speaking on behalf of Hungarian Lutherans, the new president said, "We live here with the conviction that we are not here by chance, that it is not an impersonal fate that has put us here "We are convinced that our course is worked out by God We even have to thank God that we have this task to fulfill in a new historical envi ron ment , " Kaldy added He emphasized that a different style of church life i n Hungary "does not mean that we mix the Gospel with any ideology, " a refer­ ence to frequent criticisms in and outside of Hungary that his church is too closely allied with an officially atheistic government Former Tacoman Carl Mau, LWF general secretary, also defended Kaldy. saying, "Most attacks on the H u ngarian church . . . are exagg­ erated a nd i n some i nstances rather one-sided. The Hungarian church is being accused of things they have not actually said. " Neufeld's i mpressions of the Hungarian church reinforced the bishop's words "The church is growing in Hungary, " the PLU ad mi nistrator said . . 'Its parish edu ­ cation programs and theological education programs are very alive and well "My feeling is that participation in chu rch life in H u ngary is much more open now than it has been in recent decades , " he added . In fact. the general atmosphere in Hungary belies its Eastern bloc status, acc o rd i n g to Neufeld

"There is an exuberance a mong the people H u ngarians love lifel" Neufeld asserted "They feast and dance as much as limited budgets will permit Streets are crowded; buses and trains are full Roads a re excellent and busi ness flou rishes , " he added . ' ' I ' m sure the system imposes some ha rdships Even though houses and apartment blocks are being built at a fast pace, there is still a four year wait for an apart­ ment for a young couple Wages are low. But so are costs Three­ cents would take you anyplace in Budapest on public transporta­ tion " Neufeld headed a PLU Lutheran Heritage Tour that also visited East Germany and Switzerland The en­ tourage was cordially received by the Hungarians, including Kaldy Mau also provided personal aSsist­ ance " H u nga ry was a stark contrast to East Germany, where the atomos­ phere was oppressive , " he re­ called Neufeld sees LWF assuming a larger leadership role i n ecu menic­ al relations on the world scene, due in no small part to Mau's behind- the-scenes talents. "The personal touch has never disap­ pea red from his management style, " he said of Mau. who re­ ceived an honorary doctor of divinity degree from PLU in 1977 Neufeld also explained that LWF contributes mightily to develop­ ment in Third World countries through medical, agricultural and educational programs. These me­ asures have been criticized by those who would place g reater emphasis on worship and Bible study, but their effectiveness is almost legendary, he indicated . "As a result. churches in many developing countries have be­ come independent and self-sup­ porting , " he said LWF assemblies are held every seven years U nlike some previous confabs, Neufeld felt that this year's session was a powerful influence for improved worldwide Lu t h e ra n u n i t y a n d u n d e r ­ standing

8 The President

� tJ. ?� state Of The U niversity Fidelity To M issi o n : The Mea s u re Of Success Editor's note: The following remarf<s were deli­ vered by President Rieke at the Faculty Fall Conference sept 6.

Welcome to the beginning of the academic year 1 984/85. This year is the 94th of this institution. the 24th of the U niversity. and the 1 0th of this Presid.e nt Not simply i n consequence o f the refreshment o f the summer past. but with conviction born from careful analysis. I affirm my continuing enthusiasm and gratitude for the opportuni ­ ty to begin another year's service. Perhaps it would be less enthusiastic if the service were not with you colleagues for whom I have ever growing respect. in this U niversity which becomes alwavs stronger, and at this time when opportunity for even greater accomp­ lishment is palpably within our grasp The more I analyze our history in both Quantitative and Qualitative terms, the more I am persuaded that this univeristy's success is directly attributable to a general understand­ ing of and fidelity to its mission. . It is the University's mission to offer Quality programs, employ talented faculty and staff, and serve increasing numbers of students. In each of these three areas, abundant evi­ dence of success exists. The summer ses­ sions of 1 984 served an all -time record number of students, generated h ighest ever credit hours, and i ndeed, above income and below expense budgets. While University­ wide regular year credit hour production declined 0.5% in 1 983/84, from 1 982/83 it still was higher than any other year prior to 1 981 /82 . The number of full -time equivalent faculty increased by 2% in 1 983/84, bringing the total to 250. The professional and personal vitalitY of these persons is an on-gOing concern, and continuing steps to deal with this concern were taken last year by: 1 ) enhancing Regency Advancement Awards, 2 ) increasing funding for full-year sabbaticals from 50 to 60% of salary and, 3) i nitiating a program of phased retirement A University-wide programmatic upgrade that should be mentioned lies in the addition of multiple microcomputers, word proces­ sors, and especially a Vax 1 1 /750 to comple­ ment the existing 1 1 1780 as a campus resource. The addition of this main frame together with a port contender. our most recent acquisition, will eventually allow serv­ icing of up to 144 7801750 on-campus computer ports as well as provide access to the POP 1 1 124 and external computing networks. Recommendations from the Tech­ nology and Liberal Arts Committee for computer i mplications to the curriculum and from the Information Management Planning Group a re under active study and will receive further response. In many, many ways. then. fidelity to mission has proved the measure of success with program and personnel . On a very positive note with regard to physical facilities is the dedication of the Names Fitness Center. With the opening of the Rieke Science Center and the renovation of Ramstad plus demolition of Ivv, many secondary moves will occur. The School of Nursing will occupy the top two floors of Ramstad by next fall. and the first floor will house a new student computer laboratory, the Academic Advising Center together with

its Writing Center. Co-op Education, Counsel­ ing and Testing, and the Career Planning and Placement Office . A host of tertiary moves and adjustments i nvolving other buildings and offices will then occur, improving and facilitating operations. Fidelity to mission as the measure of success certai nly can be applied to the financial side of the University. Gratefully, I report to you that academic 1 983/84 ended. by external audit, $91 ,000 in the black . Not much as a per cent of the total budget (O. 31 %), but a strong sig n , particularly when i ncome from tuition credit hour ran year­ long nearly 1 .7% under budget Financial reserves, or "rainy day funds . " not counting general University endown­ ments, i ncreased modestly. continuing a trend which started from a negative position in 1 978 and now amounts to approximately $0.8 million on the positive side. Fund riSing, too. edged in total slightly above last year's all time record. and hit 461 . 1 % growth since 1 975176. I acknowledge with sincere gratitude those many among you who contributed to Q-Club, Lute Club, the capital campaigning and/or other drives. A $400,000 challenge grant for completion of the Rieke Science Center was received from the Kresge Foundation this summer Prog ­ ress continues under the impetus of a Lutheran Brotherhood challenge grant to build the general endownment Thanks to special federal legislation , it became possible to pre-pay loans of the 1 960's against the dormitories at greatly d iscounted prices The University is even now completing this transaction which will convert a near $45 million debt to about $1 . 5 million for a 66% discount and removal of first mortgages from many U niversity buildings. These and other evidences of fidelity to mission are clearly perceived to the benefit of all of us by the financial community outside the Univer­ sity With resolve to continue our commitment Dr William 0 Rieke

to mission, let us turn now to selected projections for the future. I will suggest some under each of the categories of programs a nd personnel. facilities, a nd finances. In making these I am both sincere and intent, for they are my response to the Question which surfaced most frequently and strongly during the evaluation of the President I requested last April. That Question fol lowed the finding that constituents wanted no change at the helm of the ship of state. but did want to know whither the ship was bound. It is not enough. respondents to the evaluation wrote, for the ship of state simply to sai l on; not enough even to cut a broad swath, but where is it going? What will the University be? What will it do? Of course, even as the officers and I are now updating the five-year plan in response to the Regents request. no one knows or can know with certainty. But to the extent that intentionality determines outcomes, the fol ­ lowing are my responses First. with respect to projections of prog ­ rams and personnel, I begin with the key issue of communication and decision mak­ ing It is important to reaffirm that this President has no intention of changing a style of communication and decision making demonstrated over nine years to be open. consultative. and collegial. There will be no conscious movement nor subconscious drift toward any other style. Neither will there be any abdication of responsibility for final decisions when administration is charged with such responsiblities Second. with regard to projections of program and personnel. I am eager to communicate that with faculty adoption last spring of a constitutional change regarding the titles of chief administrators for the Divisions within the College of Arts and Sciences. I have appointed each of Drs. David Atkinson in Social SCiences. John Herzog in Natural Sciences. and Dennis Martin in H umanities to the title of Dea n . The i ntent is better to communicate both internally and externally their roles. authority. and respon­ sibility. Third. it is projected with regard to prog­ ram to continue enhancing full-time faculty sabbatical pay Renewal is simply necessary In a similar vein, although a formalized program for such renewal does not exist among administrators, the Regents have recognized that need also. During 1 984/85. the Regents have authorized the President to be on three-month administrative leave from January 29, 1 985 to April 28, 1 985. Though the Pre s i d e n t h a s a r ra n g e d schedules such that h e will miss none of the Regents meetings and none of the major decision events such as promotion, tenure, setting of tuition, drafting of both prelimi­ nary and final budgets. much of his load and all of his authority will fall on the Provost during his absence. The President therefore has suggested that the Provost take a leave (the first in the 1 4 years of his tenure) prior to the President's being gone. The Provost has assented. and will be absent from October 1 5, 1 984 to January 1 5 . 1 985 During his absence. the President will function for the Provost Continued on page 19

He ritage Society Mem ers Enjoy Annual BanQuet


By John Aakre Associate Director Of Development

The Fall IS budget planning time for most cong regations IS your church a member of the Q Club? There are 70 cong regations in the Church Division of the Q Club. Almost all of them "joined" when the pastor. a member. or a group of members served as local advocates for the University in their budget process This is the time that decisions on budget support for PLU and other local benevo­ lences are being made for 1985. The Q Club is looking for vol unteers who are willing to help us "carry the ball" for the Q Club in their home congregation Our goal this Fall is to add 30 new members to the Church Division of the Q Club for the coming calendar year As you know. any unrestricted gifts total­ ing at least $240 over a 1 2 - month period qualifies a church. business or individual for membership in the Q Club These gifts help us provide scholarship aid. support facu lty salaries. buy books for the library. and aid in the general operations Nearly half of our students come from Lutheran congregations Because of that. we believe that many churches would support the University through the Q Club if they knew how vital their gifts can be to those students Last June. at the North Pacific District Convention of the ALC . over 1 60 pastors and delegates attended a special Thank You Luncheon for the Church Division of the Q Club. Of the 62 congregations represented at the luncheon . 45 are currently in the Q Club The remainder have expressed interest in learning more about congregational support of the University There is a vast and largely untapped source of support and encouragement for the University among our congregations With your help. we can encourage that support this Fall . If you would like to help us with your congregation. just call or write the Q Club Office and we will send you information which you can present to your council or budget committee.

Peo ple Pictu res: At A Place li ke PLU, people Cou nt By Harvey Neufeld Executive Director Of Church Relations

When professors use slides it is called teaching when salespeople use slides it is called selling When tou rists use slides it is called bori ng But not so this last time when, with some trepidation, I gathered the Nesvig Alumni House staff together during lunch break for a free slide show. My summer in Germany, Austria, East Germany, and Hun­ gary had been a great delight. and now it would be to others I think I know the reason. Maybe the staff people came out of courtesy They had to have lunch anyway But that is not the way they are. They are direct and caring I 've been gently helped before. "Your voice really carries well. Harv'" they hint Translation: " Pipe downl" "We'd like to be able to reach you, Harv, " they suggest Translation: "You'd think after all these years that guy would remember to tell us where he's going ." "Do you think they would like an answer soon?" Translation "Quit procrasti nating Clean up your desk. " Yes, they all care - they care about me, about people They care that things go well for PLU They care about the proper image Their concern is more than courtesy. As slide after slide came on the screen they saw what I saw - the abundant joy that people bring to our lives. Oh, there were pictures of cathedrals and castles, autobahns and art, ancient ruins and state-of-the art trains. But it was people, good old American tourists, that gave soul to what we saw. Beside the stern Hungarian border pOlice was the President's executive associate skip­ ping rope! At the deluxe Bavarian breakfast there was Eva Tollefson singing the Johnny Appleseed meal prayerl The East German border guard carefully unwrapped an odd-sha ped article from our baggage, ready to leap back at any moment at some new deadly discovery Alas! It was Paul Dillinger's (age 12 ) enormous two-foot­ long nutcracker. "Ach du lieber," i ndeed Paul grinned from ear to ear. Then there was Pastor Rod Johnson, battling cancer, willing to climb (crutches and al/) the 400 meter pathway to Luther's Wartburg castle. It had been a "people" summer, and the folks in the Alumni H ouse had a feel for what that meant That's one of the 10YS of a place like PLU - people count With this Scene issue. Ron Coltom leaves his post as alumini director. In whatever "slide" he appears, we all care about him and will follow his picture hat'S the way PLU is . People ar always in the pIctu re

On September 1 5. seventy members of the Heritage Society met for their annual ban­ quet and most of the members climaxed the evening by attending PLU'S presentatIon of "Kiss Me Kate ." Speaker at t h e b a n Q u e t w a s G a r y Habeda nk. First vice-president at Foster and Marshall/America n Express in Tacoma He spoke on "Changes in the Investment Indus­ try in the '80's " Dr Willia m 0 Rieke, PLU president. also provided the grou p with some i nsig hts with regard to the direction the university is moving, and what can be expected during the current school year, as well as a glimpse at future plans While the audience varied in age (from early 30's to 94 years Old) they had one thing in common; namely, a deferred gift for PLU . Habedank, in his opening remarks, stated that many people ask him, as a stockbroker, where they can find their best investment He told the group, "I believe that each of you, as you have provided for PLU, has already found the best investment possible " The Heritage Society, now i n its fourth year, includes those persons who have made some type of deferred g ift to the university This could be a bequest in one's will, an insurance policy, a charitable g ift annu ity, a charitable remainder trust. or a gift of a residence with a retained life estate Currently there are over 125 members units in the Heritage Society More information about the Heritage Soci­ ety can be obtai ned by contacting Edgar

Dr Olson, in addition to his athletic director responsibilities, is dean of the School of Physical Education and first vice -president of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Reflecting on his experience in Greece, Olson said, "One of the great things I appreciate about 'sport', that is embodied in the Olympic Games, in that 'sport' b r i dges d i ffere nces i n color , creed, language, politics, and sex It also brings all of us together in a oneness and a felJowship with great potential for good out­ comes We saw it happen in Los Angeles It certainly occurred at the Interna tional Olympic Academy and I hope it happens through international sport of many kinds " "Of particular significance to me was the fact that the lOA is conducted in ancient Olympia, where the Olym pics had its origin To see the ru ins, visit the Olympic museum, run on the track where the fi rst race was conducted - to simply be in that environment enables one to gain an apprecia­ tion for the Olympic movement not possible in another way, "

Lutes 16 27 22 24

Olson continued "Probably the main contribu­ tion of the ancient Greeks to phYSical education and athletics ­ that continues to form the basis for a sensible philosophy of sports and physical education - is their understanding and promotion of the balanced and harmonious de­ velopment ("Kalos Kagathos"l of the total person The integration of mind, body, and spirit and the proper attention to each dimen­ sion of life remains a worthy goal for any and all of our educational programs, " he said "I think the Greeks had a good g roup of 'amateur athletes' . In their language, 'amateur' means to delight in one who is in love with something and 'athletics' refers to competing for a prize We need to present athletic programs that enable young people to enjoy the trip while still striving for excell­ ence " "My interest will be to per­ petuate Olympism by promoting these ideals and values through intercollegiate sports and by of­ fering courses that enable stu ­ jents to gain an appreciation for the entire Olym pic movement "

PLU Alum's Cordage Resea rch Sheds New Lig ht On Life In Ancie nt Egypt By Jim Peterson

Don Ryan studies old rope At first one doesn·t become too excited But Don'S enthusiasm is contagious One learns that - the rope (cordage) is ancient Egyptian - 3.000 to 3.500 years old; - cordage was as important to ancient Egyptians as wood. nails and g lue are to us; - understanding more about the types of cordage - its size. material. strength and construc­ tion - could tell u s much about ancient Egypt that is still specula­ tive a nd mysterious; - and. vi rtually no one has specialized i n this area of research since the first sign ificant samples were excavated nearly a century ago Qu ite by accident. Ryan has discovered a virg i na l research area that cou ld eventua lly offer impo r ­ ta nt documentation f o r histo­ r i a n s . archaeologists and even botanists Rya n ' s career to date has been varied P r i o r to e a r n i n g h i s bachelor's degree in political sc i ­ ence a t Pacific Lutheran U n iversity five years ago. he organ ized a climbing expeditio n to M o u n t McKin ley i n Alaska .

Dr. Peter Moore ( '74) has de­ sig ned a n ingenious " black box" which stores all the equi p ment he needs to treat denta l patients in nursing homes throughout the Seattle-Tacoma a rea . A veritable Rubik's C ube of or­ der and sequence, Dr. Moore 's prototype serves as a complete dental office a lthough it is only a cubic foot - a nd - a - half square I n ­ side. there is a place for everyth ing - and everything must be i n its place for the box to close p roperly " I a p p l i e d s o m e of t h e mathematical prinCiples I learned at PLU when I designed the stor­ age box. " said Dr. Moore. The functional box conta i n s equ ipment which serves a s a port­ able dental chair, dark room , a ma l ­ gamator, lights. x - ray viewing box, instru ments, water p u m ps - ev­ erything needed to treat patients who req u i re e m e rg e n c y o r routine dental care . He m arkets the "black box" u nder the name "Port-Op . " "The secret to the success of this prototype - which had seven predecessors - is that many of the components, including the box, itself. have more than one functio n , " explained D r . Moore, whose service is called Mobile­ Dent It is located in Redmond where Dr. Moore lives with his w ife, J o , and two daug hters, Alycia, 5; and Jen nifer, 3 Dr. Moore became an itinerant dentist in 1 978 after g raduating from the U niversity of Washington Dental School ( He credits Prof Harold Leraas, biology professor emeritus. with writing a recom ­ mendation letter which paved the way for his acceptance at the U of W) At that ti me, Dr Moore was expecting to work as a traveling dentist for the Canadian M i nistry of Health a long with his wife, a dental hygienist However, when those plans did not materialize, he decided to shift his traveling den­ tal services to the Seattle a rea . "When I first started. it took nearly a h a lf day for me to set up a portable office in a n u rsing home; , had to pack footlockers of equip­ ment i n a spec i a l ly des i g n e d motor home , " h e said . Since t h e n , D r . M o o r e h a s streamlined the equipment s o h e c a n travel in a van . He has a contractual ag reement to provide dental services for 28 nursing homes in the seattle-Tacoma area; he is also on call for another dozen

nursing homes. A dental hygienist assists him with his traveling prac­ tice. The traveling dentist said he receives satisfaction in treating elderly patients in nursing homes because "the need is so g reat . . . it comes down to the question . .

L oading the "black box"

if , don't take ca re of their dental needs - who will?" Dr. M oore first became aware of the tremendous need for provid­ ing dental services to the elderly when visiting his grandmother in a n u rsing home. More often than not. he finds himself treating p ri m a ri l y e me rg e ncy p a t i ents when he a rrives at the n u rsing homes he visits on a monthly basis ' " treat an average of six to eight patients at each n u rsing home, on a first-come, fi rst-served basis . after diagnosing what the needs a re, , consult with the n u rsing home staff and relatives of the patient. " he explained Dr Moore said he gains a great deal of a ppreCiation from the fam ilies of n u rsing home patients, the staff, and the patients them ­ selves He added, ' " think the h u m a n feelings I have for these people was influenced by the general ca ring for others demonstrated by the admin istration, teachers a nd fellow students at PLU " D r. Moore com mented, "When ' first started in my profession, I felt I'd be g rateful to eke out a living as a traveling dentist serving nursing home patients . . . now. it's a lmost h a rd to believe I ' m responsible for the dental care of 6,000 elderly people - , simply can't abandon the m .

University's Oldest Alum Returns To PLU Campus After 70 Years The vast changes at PLU a nd in society at large became vividly appa rent during a memorable visit to the cam pus in August by the u niversity ' s oldest alu m . Sophie (Larsen 'H) ·Matse n , 93, of Bickleton, Wash , and her son , Herb, toured the ca m pus with PLU President William Rieke a nd direc­ tor of special g iving AI Hove But it was during lunch with 2 1 -yea r-old Darla Berg, an education major from Puyallup, that changes be­ came so apparent In Sophie's day, boys and g irls stayed to themselves "Boys lived in one end of Ha rstad Hall, g i rls lived i n the other, " she said "We met i n the reception roo m . " There were only 1 2 boys and 12 girls living o n campus, she added. "Most of the time we were busy with our studies , " M rs Matsen recalled. She a nd her sister com ­ pleted three years of work i n two years Recreation consisted of "walk­ ing around" or playing crOQuet or tennis. There were boy's and girl's sports , " but we couldn't watch each other's practice, and we didn't expose our bodies at a l l , " s h e s a i d . " T h e g i rls wore bloomers . "

One could ride the streetcar to Point Defiance Park a nd back for a nickel, Mrs . Matsen recalled . Food service was a complaint then, as now . But Darla admitted that today's students might com ­ plain much more loudly i f they were fed the 1 9 1 3 diet "Lots of beans, and brea d , " M rs. Matsen recalled "And a frequent potato­ meat dish. " Resident student had to be i n bed b y 1 0 p m , s h e added St i l l , s o m e t h i n g s h a ve n ' t changed. Darla explained, "PLU students are still like a very large fam ily - a nd Christian-oriented. There is still chapel, though not mandatory, and no alcohol is per­ mitted on campus . " M rs . M atsen observed , "We need people to go out in the world with a Christian background . " Re­ membering that she had once thought about being a missionary, she added, "I hope I've been a m issionary where I've been living . " Although she has kept u p with P L U n e w s r ec e n t l y , c a m pus changes still came as as shock, "For som e reason I envisioned only three or four buildings, " M rs . Matsen said.

Fourth, with regard to program, it is a pleasure to be able to report positive signs about this fall's enrollment. New student registration is slightly more than 5% greater than last year's new student total. As judged by advance registration of both new and continu­ ing students, the new tuition Cost Containment Plan seems to be attaining its goal of facilitating greater credit hour loads. Credit hour registra­ tion was running 1 ,877 hou rs ahead ( = + 4.6%) of last year's on September 5, and projections for both full-time and part-time students are presently above budget. Important to program planning is the information that as many as 30% of our total student head-count may be age 25 and above. Fifth, with regard to program, I have concurr­ ed with the plan of Physics and Engineering to ca rry to the Educational Policies Committee its proposal for a major in Electrical Engineering . Sixth, I strongly affirm the long -standing University policy of making new buildi ng as its number one priority between now and the 1 990 centennial . Phase II of the Rieke Science Center must also be constructed to house Math/Com­ puter Science and accommodate any growth in Engineering The East Campus, now in the third year of a five-year lease must somehow be retained, as it has proven successful and vital to the program of several schools and depart­ ments. Housing or construction of the Scan­ di navian Cultural Cener similarly must be ac­ commodated. Each of these is a major capital need, and the U niversity will never, and should never in the foreseeable future. be without a capital cam­ paign Finally. as we project the physical facilities needed between now and the centennial, it is important to remain faithful to our spiritual as well as academic mission . To this end, prelimi­ nary discussions are underway regarding the

need for the construction of a chapel on the campus. Now, projections as to finance. It is plain that the eternal struggles for funds will not become easier, and establishing budget priorities will become more difficult. One needs to reflect, however, that in the ten years since 1 975/76 budgets have increased three-fold, and have been met each yea r. This was done in spite of each past year also having been progressively more difficult. There is then precedent for continued success. Part of the projections calls for a modest 2.5 to 3% growth in enrollment in the next five years; part calls for reversing the recent decline in student/faculty ratios by holding back new pOSitions, reducing the number of elective courses, and allowing growth in student body to overtake relatively stable numbers in faculty and administrative positions. Recruitment and retention of students must be the concern of everyone of us. Our faithfulness to mission compels us to put student needs first, for that remains not just a financial necessity, but the heart of our reason to be. 'Throughout this presentation I have suggest­ ed that fidelity to mission has been the measure of success In that portion of this presentation concerning the projections just completed, I have attempted to respond to the important question of where the ship of state - the University - is bound. Pacific Lutheran Universi­ ty of 1 990/91 , the centennial, will be recogniz­ ably the PLU we know and love today. It will be because the same mission prevails - yet it will be better overall, different. with some new programs, marked by significant new construc­ tion and buildings, and somewhat larger with regard to student body This is our hope, our plan, our direction. It is really true as we look both at what has

been and at what is yet to be that fidelity to mission is the measure of success. I believe so, Earl J. McGrath and Robert Webber, who last year chose PLU for study as one of 1 5 successful i nstitutions of higher education nationally, document it through their research, and many, many of you, my colleagues, believe it also. Should there linger even a shadow of a doubt. let me conclude this morning by sharing what for me was a most illuminating conversation that occurred just last week. That conversation occurred as administration and Regents met with the University's newly appointed underwri­ ter, selected in national competition, to plan and wrestle with the complexities associated with the $10S;. million bond issue. Knowing that some nationally recognized and major financial institution would have to stand behind any bonds we issue, I inqu ired what sort of collateral in addition to a fee we must pledge to secure such backing. The underwriter smiled and said, "unlike your situation 8- 10 years ago, many institutions will now bid to support you. Only the small or unsophisticated institutions will look for mortgages as collateral. Large and sophisticated institutions will not. There will be many of these, including foreign banks, that now know about PLU and will want its business. The word is on the street. It isn't mortgageable property, but rather your program that is known and has them persuaded ." How remarkably true, I thought! The program - the fidelity to mission - translates even i n the world of hard-bitten financiers to success and hence to dollars. "The word is on the street." That word got there because of our working as a team, together. Together we open the first in the yea rs of continued program and mission to 1 990/91 . God bless us on our journey!

PLU Oroup May Be First American Study Tour In Far western China

one of the first American groups to venture as far west as Urumqi on northwest Ch ina Kashi is several hundred miles fu rther west. "ThiS exotic part of China belongs to Central Asia and is populated by Muslim minorities, . said Guldin . "Their cultural af­ finities lie more with Soviet Inner Asia, Siberia, TIbet and Mongolia . " Xlning, a Tibetan-oriented, re­ cently opened city i n the southern west. is also on the itinerary, as is Xian, the ancient capital and site of the vast underground terra-cotta army buried 2 , 1 00 years ago with China's first em peror. Other tour sites include an old ghost city where treasure can still be found in the dust of the st reets, the oldest B u d d h ist shrines in China, as well as Buddh­ ist caves and grottoes and, or course, the Great Wal l . Cities in­ clude Hong Kong, Beijing, Lanzhou and Turpan. Both Guldin and the tour co­ leader, his wife Mun-Jong Fung, have taught courses on China and Asia at PLU, are tri-lingual, and have made numerous China visits. The to u r may be taken f o r academic credit. For more i nformation write to the PLU Global Studies Program o r call (206) 535-7661 . A �------------------------------------------� \ ----------� . Pa rticipants In a Pacific Lutheran University study tour next June will be arno g the fi rst Americans to visit Kashi i n far west China. The city, near the Soviet. Indian and Afg ha nistani borders, has on ly recently been opened to visitors, . according to tour host Dr. Greg Guldin, PLU Globa l Studies direc­ tor. To his knowledge, no other American group has yet visited Kashi. The three-week tour begin ning next May 30 will visit several exotic and unfamiliar regions in central and west China in addition to the more fa miliar tourist stops in the East. Kashi is the China embarkation point of the Marco Polo, or Silk Road, one of history's g reat com­ mercial trade routes. Because the PLU tour will visit several points a long that road, it has been labeled the Silk Road Study Tour. This tour may be of particular interest to persons interested in art, Guldin indicated, citing the varieties of cultures to be encoun­ tered on the tour. West and far west China show strong Indian, Persian and even European influ­ ences, rather than traditional Chinese culture, he explained. Two years ago a PLU tour was

It combines gift and investment. so that in exchange for cash, marketable securities or real es­ tate, the beneficiary, in this case PLU , will guarantee a lifetime in­ come to the donor. The re is a tax deduction for the gift, a portion of the monthly i ncome is tax free, and the donor is free of management worries, Bekemeier added.

LITE Offers New Resident Theologian Prog ra m For Luthera n Congregations The gifts and resou rces of teacher-theologians will be avail­ able to Lutheran congregations in the Northwest through the new Resident Theolog ian Program of­ fered by the Lutheran Institute for Theological Education (UTE) at PLU . According to LITE director Dr. Walter Pilgrim, the program will (1 ) enable congregations to have a clearer concept of what it means to be Lutheran and ecu menical withi n the body of Christ; (2) offer a theological resou rce to the ministry of smaller congregations; (3) help congregations develop s p ecific p l a n s fo r continued theologica l g r owth a n d i m ­ plementation of their ministries; (4) help neighboring congrega ­ tions become better acquainted and to affi rm their joi nt ministries within their com munity; and (5) i nclude diverse groups within the cong regation (leaders, teachers, youth, seniors, ch ild ren, si ngles, new Lutherans etc') in reflections u pon role and mission. Eight area clusters of congrega-

tions will host the first resident theologian Sept. '85-May '86 . He is Rev. Dan Erlander, di rector of the resource center at Holden Village and widely known as a dynamic, creative teacher (see sepa rate story). Erlander, who has written outstanding study materials on a variety of topics, such as Baptized We Live and By Faith Alone, will spend two to three weeks in each of the eight area clusters. Pilgrim explained that he will work with local committees on event schedules, and that primary fi nancial support will come from the congregations served. The program has been endors­ ed by each of the Northwest district/synod bishops . One w rote, "I am particularly pleased and intrigued by the possibility that this program can be available to small town and ru ral congrega­ tions. " LITE is cu rrently accepting re­ quests for 1 985-86. Potential con­ gregation clusters should consult with one another, then write to LITE at PLU . For more information call (206) 535- 7341 .

Serving as director of the re­ sou rce center at Holden village has been the fulfillment of a drea m for . Rev. Dan Erlander, a 1 962 PLU alu mnus. Next year Erla nder, a former PLU art major who combi nes g raphics and words to convey his Christian convictions, will be the first resi­ dent theolog ian to serve clusters of Northwest Lutheran congrega­ tions on behalf of the new LITE Residential Theologian Program (see separate storyl. At Holden, a retreat center on a mountain above Lake Chelan in Central Was h i n g to n , Erla n d e r , teaches, preaches and counsels, but a lso collects and generates Christian informational materials to share with some 6,000 guests and staff mem bers, plus over 1 ,800 on a quarterly mailing list. A g raduate of Augustana Semi ­ nary in Rock Island, III ., Erlander applies his art skills to his ministry in many ways. He designs, does lettering and prepares drawings for booklets and pamphlets he prints at Holden . For a slide show about his 1 983 tri p to China, he m ixed informational sketches with . photography. His drawings also enliven tracts he has written for Lutheran publi. cations.

PLU publishes Jerke's Lord's

Faith And LIfe Lectu re Series

prayer Meditations

Is Esta bl ished

In 1 976, during his tenure as university minister at PLU, the late Rev. Donald Jerke presented a series of chapel meditations on the Lord 's Prayer which PLU Presi­ dent William Rieke has described as "a treasured land mark in the l ife of PLU . " Those med itations have been published by the PLU Press as a memorial to Rev. Jerke. Harvey Neufeld, executive directo r of c h u rch r e l a t i o n s , an d Dav id Yagow, deputy provost. edited the man uscript of Meditati�ns on

A new lectureship, known as The Annual Faith and Life Lectureship, is being established at PLU . The first speaker in 1 985 will be Dr. Jaroslav Pelikan. The establish­ ment of this new series coincides with the publication of the Beck­ man Lectures. (see photo) Over a period of five years theologians of national and inter­ national reputation lectured at Pacific Luthera n University under the sponsorship of The Beckman Memorial Lectureship. The appeal of these chal lenging lectures, both to the genera l public and the academic community, made the lectureship one of the sig nificant academic and theolog ical events on the campus. This new lecture­ ship will continue that series. In the spirit of the former Beckman Lectureship series, this lectureship will promote public and lively d iscussion between stu­ dents, faculty, and visitors on key issues of Ch ristian faith. General themes for the lecture­ ship will be: 1 ) Foundation offaith: Biblical. historical, and contem­ porary theology. 2) Faith in the world: ethics, the arts, and scien­ tific perspectives. 3) Faith and the ch urCh : liturgy, ecumer.ics, mi nis­ try, and education. The lectureship is presently be­ ing supported by the Jerke fa mily and relatives in memory of the late Rev. Donald Jerke.

Jerke served as university m in is­ ter from 1975-78. He was then appoi nted as PLU vice-president for student life. He died Oct. 24, 1 981 . "Jerke often mimeographed his sermons for students," Neufeld said . "They were very popular." Yagow said that he wa nted to publish the sermons because Jerke was a very close friend and because they a re "the most bri l ­ liant mediations o n the Lord 's Prayer I have ever heard or read. " Th.e project was a com munity effort. PLU 's Central Services volunteered the printing, and ca mpus g ra phic artist Paul Porter donated design time. Sandra Jerke of Tacoma, wife of the late pastor, provided fu nds for printing mate­ rials a nd paper. Proceeds from the book sales will go to the Jerke Scholarshi p Fund .

Reflections On A Typica l PLU Pare nt's Respon se B y John Adlx Parents Club Representattve

I have listened to parents in many different settings. If they could write a corporate letter to PLU, it might read something like this: Dear PLU: Four years ago we began the college search. We were first attracted by your strong academic progra m . The beauty of the campus helped in our final decision as well. Even after receiving your financial aid award, we wondered if we could manage; we knew we would have to stretch. It certainly has been worth it. Fred has grown in his years with you . He studies a good deal. and has been awakened with a hunger for learning. He has taken many different classes, which we know has prepared him well for whatever he chooses to do. His parttime job is important financially, but it also has taught him some new skills. We were pleasantly surprised that he had a part i n the next play, and not too disappointed that his intramural basketball team came i n last. Though his life in the dorm has had its ups and downs, he has made some good friends. He really does not complain m uch about the food. We ap­ preciate his opportunity to participate in the campus religious life. To struggle with values in life's decisions seems to go on forever. It is gratifying for us to know that in the challenging and competitive process of learning and g rowing and preparing, there are also people who care. Thank you PLU! Sincerely, PLU Parent

Thirteen years ago a small group of friends and alums of Pacific Lutheran University gathered together to celebrate a small milestone. The PLU Q Club had been founded several months earlier and when the membership reached 100 they held a banquet. Those charter members of the Q Club raised $51 ,000 that first year to help students attend PLU . Since that time some remarkable things have happened. Today there are over 1 ,200 Q Club members. While most live here in the Northwest, we have members in 31 states one in England and another in Saudi Arabia! ' Thanks to the continuing generosity of many people, the Q Club will soon top the $4 million mark in total contributions since it's modest beginnings in 1 972. Those g ifts have helped literally thousands of students receive a PLU education. Without that help, many could never have afforded to come here. When I talk to people they sometimes ask me how their $20, $40 or $83 a month contribution to the Q Club can make a difference. Though its hard to believe, I just tell them the truth, that's how we've raised nearly $4 million so far - one person at a time. *



. Alaska Airlines has DONATED two round trip tIckets to encourage Q Club recruitment. The two people who recruit the most new Q Club members and/or secure the most increased pledges to a higher Q Club level will win a FREE ticket. The contest began in mid-November and will r�� until December 3 1 st. Remember, by recrUIting a new member you can effectively double your contribution. If you'd like to help, just call our office and we will work together with you to get another Q Clubber. Call Dave Berntsen or John Aakre at (206) 535-7429.

'Night Life By Harvey Neufeld. Executive Dfrector Of Church Relations

The vast expanses of the Dakotas or Montana, Eastern Washington or southern Idaho all have hig hways punctuated by famous "watering holes" and rest stops for truckers and travelers, troopers and tourists. At night the sky is aglow with color as garish neon signs beckon and entice the weary driver to break the spell of interstate hyp­ nosis. The Circle T. The Buckhorn. Myrtle's. Barney's. Or maybe just plain Generic Cafe! When you've seen one, you'll have known them all. What's so inviting about them? Religiously, they are very leveling. You can't tell the Mormons from .the Pentecos­ tals, the Baptists from the beatniks, the high church folks from the hitchhikers. I never see ministers. I think, like me, they are camoug­ laged in wool shirts and work boots. At midnight on the freeway people love anonymity. The surroundings are comfortable and predictable, always warm. The walls feature calf-roping scenes, wild eyed stallions, and bears breaking up a fishing camp. Occasional­ ly a piece of art work is hanging above the booth, like the mining pick menacing table 1 4. The clientele is easy going and doesn't care who else is there. A bleary eyed trucker fills h is stainless steel coffee thermos, i nadver­ tently adding a few cigarette ashes for flavor. Always there seems to be a new waitress acting out. like a lead in a play, her first job on the grave yard shift. The entire business is supervised by a gravelly throated dowager of the deep fry. Everyone knows her. She loves the lonely. She tenderly heats up a baby's bottle while a couple of teens are playing big time night life, just on the way home from the junior high tolo. These are good people. And my time with them is well spent. At this time of year our memory turns to one who had "no form or comeliness" that we should desire to see him. These'folks weren't pretty either. But to be among the ordinary folks, the night travelers of life, that's pretty good stuff. No telling who will enrich our life at Barney's on the Interstate. The coffee was good. It was time to head out. "You take care, now. Have a good night." said the gravelly voiced lady. She meant it. It wasn't in the green hymn book, but I took it as a blessing. Home was just over the next hill.

Rapidly Increasing Fundraislng Success Show� GrOwlng popularity Of KPLU-FM KPLU-FM , PLU's National Public Radio-affiliated radio station, is making a name for itself, and the university. In Western Wash i n gton, its stereo jazz-news- public affa i rs format, just one year old, is prov­ i ng to be an unqualified success. Just how successful is reflected in the financial support the station is receiving from listeners. Nationwide, it is beginning to receive exposure through feeds to NPR. There have been several news features aired, including one on Coach Chuck Knox and his Seattle Sea hawks. Jazz concerts from area clubs, such as Jazz Alley in Seattle, have also been sub­ mitted. On Nov. 1 4, FM 88 wrapped u p its sixth semi-annual on-air fun­ draiser with cash and pledges totaling just over $60,000. That figure was $10,000 over goal and

Nlsqually Plains Room Has New. Expanded space The Nisqually Plains Room , a collection center for Northwest historical memorabilia located for many years in Mortvedt Library at PLU, has been moved to East Campus. According to director Dr. Art Martinson, PLU professor of his­ tory, the move allows more space for expansion and fits in nicely with the community service em­ phasis of East Campus units. The move, in turn, allows for expansion of the Scandinavian Immigrant Collection, a similar resource center which previously shared the library space. As a result of the move, it also has been expanded and reorganized, coor­ dinator Kris Ringdahl reported . The N i sq u a l l y Plains Room houses a variety of studies, docu­ ments and photographs as well as an established archive collection that is designated on the State Register. Just as i mportant is the i ncreased work, study a nd confer­ ence space now available, Martin­ son noted. Community study projects in­ clude The Working Waterfrontand Hart's Lake School: Symbol of Pioneer Education. Both were co­

authored by Dr. Martinson and Dr. Ron Magden, also of Tacoma. A Parkland School ( East Campus) history is underway, Martinson explained . "It will document not only its near-century of operation si nce 1 888, but its relevance to the c o m m u n ity, both d u ring its school days and in its present role," he said . A Northwest Trek educati o n acket for public schools is also available. 'NPR facilities are avail­ able by appointment (535-71 73) .

four times greater than income from the station's first on-air appeal only two-and-a-half years ago. According to station develop­ ment director Dean Zuch, the three fund raisers held while still a c lassical music station ra ised $50,000. The three appeals since the format change have brought in over $1 30,000, even though the first came only days after the change was made. Zuch believes that the station not only found a niche for itself in the highly competitive and volatile radio listener market, but that the niche is one that is just beginning to see its growth potential. "Today, on a national level, the jazz market is still smaller than the classical market," he said. "But it's a growth market. It is where the younger adults, the Baby Boom­ ers, seem to be going as they gradually grow away from rock. " And while KPLU-FM had quality competition in the classical mar­ ket. there is virtually no quality competition in the jazz market. A typical jazz listener is also likely to be attracted to the station's news and public affairs prog ram­ ming and to PLU generally. The profile is that of professional peo­ ple, highly educated, with good incomes. "Our news has considerably more depth than you get from other news stations, which are essentially h ea d l i ne services , " zuch continued . "National Public Radio's 'Morning Edition' and 'All Things Considered' try to give you a more complete story. You could compare it to the difference bet­ ween the New York Daily Newsand the New York Times. " N PR news covers not only the events of the day, but broader topics and issues - science, economics, art, music, dance, and many more. FM 88's stereo signal is con­ stantly being upgraded. The in­ crease to 1 00,000 watts four years ago theoretically provided service to more than two million listeners from Vancouver, Wash., to Van­ couver, B.C., but since FM is a line­ of-sight signal. there were stil l m a n y p o c k e t s i n w e st e r n Washington u nable to hear the station. As of this month there are four new translators (Signal boosters) in operation in southwest Washing­ ton that open up new listener areas i n Aberdee n - H oq u i a m , Raymond-South Bend, Longview­ Kelso, and vastly improve the signal around Centralia-Chehalis. The Signal should be particularly a ppreCiated by 1-5 travelers, who traditionally lose most program selection between Chehalis and ongview. The translators were funded by a grant from National Telecom­ munications and Information Ad­ ministration.



KPLU-FM staff celebrates first anniversary of jazz format at Jazz Alley in Seattle. From left, Scott Williams, Jim Wilkie, Dee Ferko, Ken Wiley, Dr. Martin Neeb, Dale Bundrant, Dean Zuch and Charles Tomaras.

Within the next few months a translator will be installed near Orting to improve the Signal in the Puyallup and East Tacoma area . A n o t h e r possible i n sta llation would be north of Seattle to reach a number of missed pockets in northwest Washington. In addition, KPLU -FM is on cable systems in Seattle and Olympia. While a format change and tech nologica l adva nces h a v e made an important difference, so have the efforts of station man­ agement and staff, according to general manager Dr. Martin Neeb. For example, he explained that jazz music director Charles To­ maras, hired a year ago, has many connections in the jazz communi­ ty and with record companies. Both he and morning host Dale Bundrant have Seattle area follow­ ings based on previous tenures with KJZZ in Seattle and CJAZ in Vancouver, B.C. respectively. Tacoman Ken Wiley brings his own large jazz collection and his­ torical perspective to weekend p.m. programs. Jim Wilke, for many years a classical and jazz announcer at KING-FM, does a late night stint on Fridays and Satur­ days. News director Lynn Francisco came recently from KING-AM in Seattle. Local news coverage is expanding and includes a Puget Sound area version of "All Things Considered," Neeb indicated . And KPLU-FM has been visible in the community, broadcasting live from the Tacoma Dome, Pantages Centre, the new Tacoma-Sheraton Hotel and elsewhere. This past month its first anniversary of jazz party was held at Jazz Alley in Seattle, where a sold out house heard Tacoma-born jazz singer Diane SchUUr. Schuur, who is blind, recent y performed at the White House at

the invitation of Nancy Reagan. FM 88 has been enthusiastically airing cuts from her newest album , "Deedles:' since early October. Like its signal, which regularly bounces off the Westar satellite 23,000 miles out in space, KPLU­ FM is flying hig h . But if g rowth i n the numbers and enthusiasm of its listeners during the past 1 2 months j ustifies a n optimistiC prognostication, its effective out­ reach and impact on western Washington may be only the be­ ginning.

Regents Approve Wors Ip Center Feasibility Study A feasibility study to determine availability of funds for a new worship center at PLU was ap­ proved in November by the PLU Board of Regents. Board chairman Rev. David Wold will chair the study, which will be conducted only for that purpose and exclusively within the church community. In other business, PLU President Dr. William O. Rieke presented plans for a university-wide Cen­ tennial Plan, which will receive input from faculty, students, ad­ ministration and staff dl:Jring the com ing year. The plan, intended to guide the university through the 1 990 cen­ tennial year, will be presented for B o a rd adoption in November 1 985. The Regents also approved the concept and site for the proposed new theatre build ing , and set Summer Sessions '85 tuition at. $ 1 20 per credit hour.

Defense Is strong Suit As Lutes Finish 184 Season With 6-3 Mark By Jim Klttllsby Two bands of Wildcats a nd a g a n g of Loggers climbed the fence in 1 984 to prey on the Pac. Those who couldn't cope with defense were the Cla n, Vikings, Boxers, Pioneers, Bea rcats, and Pirates. Defens ive opportun ism was PLU 's strongest suit during a 6-3 football season . The Lutes had just two 1 00-yard games from its running backs and only four 200yard passing performances from q ua rterbacks.

Fast Finish Nets Booters WCIC Runner-Up Slot In the beginning , the Lady Lute soccer squad couldn't play well . At the end, they literally couldn't play at all. After a lackluster showing in the seaso n - op e n i n g Costello C u p Tournament. PLU settled down . the Paclutes won six of their last seven games and posted a 1 2 -5-1 ledger. Colleen Hacker's reign as queen of the WCIC ended after a three­ year run. Whitman, 7-1 -2 in league play, nipped the Parklanders, 7-21. PLU had an exercise i n futility at the season's end. Following the October 27 WCIC finale, the Lady Lutes practiced ten days in prepa­ ration for a post-season i nvitation­ a l tournament before learning that the tourney had been can­ celled. Fres h m a n m i d f i e l d e r R u t h Frobe emerged a s the Lady Lute scori ng · leader. Frobe leathered 1 7 goals and four assists for 38 points. Sophomore forward stacy Waterworth, slowed by an injury, had 12 goals and matching assists for 36 points. Sophomore goalkeeper M a ry Ryan posted seven shutouts while fashioning a 1 .06 goal yield per game. PLU outscored the opposi­ tion 69-21 .

volleyball Season A INet Lossl For Young Squad Their stock went u p , but the bottom line showed a net loss. PLU won its WCIC volleyball opener and registered a convinc­ ing victory in the season finale. In between, the Lady Lutes were on the verge of court bankruptcy. The Parkland net set was 4-24 overa ll, 2-1 1 in district play, and 1 9 in WCIC action . It was a rebuildi n g year for the young squad, whi c h will return ten players in 1 985 .

PLU did have volu m inous med­ ical statistics. Fifteen Lute starters missed at least one game because of injury or illness. In its last four victories of the fa ll, defensive heroics paved the way, Defensive end Jeff Elston returned an intercepted pass 1 6 yards on the opening play from scrimmage to trigger the Lutes to a 45-7 runaway win over Pacific. Fumble recoveries by corner­ back Mike O' Donnell. and Tony Sweet set up two first quarter PLU touchdowns in the 34-1 4 deci­ sions over Lewis and Clark. Sweet. defensive tackle Mike Jay, corner­ back M ike Grambo, and linebacker Keith Krassin either halted WiI­ lamette scoring drives or set up PLU TDs as the Lutes mudded out a 21 -8 victory, Krassin scored on a 39-yard blocked punt return. PLU defenders put the nets on Whitworth ' s vau nted pass i n g game i n a 38-8 come-from -be­ hind victory. The Bucs, NAIA Dis­ trict 1 's most productive aerial tea m (236 yards per game aver­ age), were held to just 65 sky yards. Offensively, junior fullback Mark Helm led the ground attack. Hel m, with two 1 00-plus yard days, bull­ ed for 480 yards in 81 carries, a 5 , 9 yard average per tote , Senior q u a rte r b a c k J eff S h u m a k e , sidelined in the sixth game of the fall ( Linfield) with a shoulder sep­ aration, threw for 1 033 yards, His replacement. freshman Jeff Yar­ nell, tossed for 779. Senior end Rich Hamlin, who missed th ree games, hauled in 32 passes for 403 yards. Cornerback Mike Grambo was the tackle leader with 48 solo stops and seven assists, while brother Mark was the overall stop specialist with 46 tackles and 1 5 assists. Jeff Elston had nine quarterback sacks for m inus 83 yards, It was also a season of milestone and irony. On Nov. 7, 1 964, PLU met Whitworth at Franklin Pierce Stadium, the first i ntercollegiate football game ever played in Park­ land. Twenty yea rs later - to the week - the Lutes and Pirates met again in Tacoma. To take advan­ tage of the artificial turf, the game was shifted to Lincoln Bowl, which PLU had avandoned when F ranklin Pierce was constructed , PLU had its problems with wild­ cats - Linfield and Central, which finished first and thi rd respectively in the NAIA Division II and Division I regular season national polls. The Lutes also fell to the Puget Sound Loggers, Scores: 27

Just the second woman in school history to cover a 5000 meter course in under 1 8 minutes (1 7:57 in finishing second at the confer­ ence chase), placed 20th at nation­ als to earn All-America recognition (top 25).

C ha pters H e l p Al u m n i Review PLU contacts ; 1 6 Formed In Fou r Yea rs By Janet Sheffels '57 Alumni Association 1 st Vice- president

When was the last time you were able to visit PLC - oops, I mean PLU, in person? Yes, I'm already showing my era by Slipping into the "PLC vintage . " li t 's so easy to do when four very intense years of my life were spent living and loving PLC and one of the most . satisfying parts of being on the Alumni Board is that I am back on campus at least th ree times a year, reliving some of the good 01' memories and experiencing a new love for PLU. There was such a showing at Homecoming and how neat it was to renew acquaintances that had not been renewed for sometimes over 25 years. It was fun to learn about others and what goes on in their lives; the hurt, pain, joys and rewards. All are so important to us and to share those experiences in person helps us to become close and u nited. For so many thou g h , Homecoming is not a possibility. Because of the many miles that separate us, or the busy life style that prevents us from making the trip, your Alumni Board is reaching out to share with alumni wherever you are. We call them chapters and in the four years since we started, we have organized 1 6 chapters that meet about once a year for a socially fun time for alumni. stu­ dents, and friends. Since being on the Alumni Board I have been directly involved work­ ing with Chapters and it is an exciting way of renewing friend­ ships, and also a way to meet new friends. I live in Wilbur (Yes, I can hear you - "Where's Wilbur?l. Wilbur is a small farming commun­ ity about 17 miles from Coulee Dam. In looking at my PLU direc­ tory, I was amazed to find the number of alumni from this area . I wanted to m eet them as it

seemed exci t i n g to meet "PLUites" that live so close. I started a chapter, calling it "The Big Bend Chapter," and met on a Sunday for a salmon barbecue at Keller Ferry. There were about 55 of us having a good visit: parents visiting, kids boating and water skiing. We look forward to having an annual affair. At our smaller events we plan to have some representative func­ tion from PLU. Dr. Phil Nordquist and wife Helen attended our bar­ becue and Phil gave a very infor­ mal rundown of what was going on at PLU . Now we have some neat videos that can be used for this sa me purpose. We are becoming more flexible as we go along. Where does your part come in? I challenge yOU to actively find those people in your a rea who have gone to PLU and invite them to a chapter gathering. Let the Alumni office know of this and they will send you all the informa­ tion you'll need to get going . Do you have a copy of the PLU alumni directory? Look up your town and the surrounding towns and I think you'll be amazed at what you find . People. perhaps some friends of yours, who have gone to PLU . If its just a few people you might invite them to your home for an informal PLU evening and use one of the new video tapes to keep you up to date on what's gOing on at our alma mater. Yes. I'll admit that being able to serve on the Alumni Board has been a real thrill for me and I'm excited about PLU and what is going on there. Its larger and there are many new buildings and many more faculty and students, but there still remains a speCial kind of feeling that comes as you walk that path you once walked as a student. I was proud to be a student at PLC and I'm equally proud to be an alumni of PLU. We have much to be proud of; let us work to .make PLU proud of us.

The Natural Sciences A t Pacific Lutheran University

Building On Proven Excellence The Natural Sciences at Pacific lutheran U niversity have a long history of excellence, going back to the days when a young man n a m ed A n d ers R a m stad i n ­ troduced college level science courses in 1 925. But it was not until 1 949 that a separate science facility was built. And that building, fittingly named in honor of Ramstad, has con­ tinued to provide most of the science facilities at PLU to the present day. During the intervening 35 years, in spite of increasingly rapid adv­ ancements and sophistication in the sciences and a tri pled campus enrollment, very little new or more modern space was available on campus. There was an addition to Ramstad Hall in 1 959, but since t h e n a d d i t i o n s h a ve b e e n makeshift, overflowing into six different campus buildings. Recognizing the critical need for new facilit es, the PLU Board of Regents launched a $1 6 . 5 million capital campaign In 1 979 called Sharing in Strength. A new 88,000square foot science facility was the primary objective. The u niversi reached out to its' constitutents: the church, alumni. business, corporations and foun­ dations, the Internal campus com­ munity, and other friends of the university. The respo nse was g ra ifying and heartening, even during an economic era of first rampant inflation, then receSSion. All of the groups responded generously The number of gifts and number of dollars was greater than had ever before been re­ ceived. After only 1 8 months, progress was such that a site and architects for the science facility could be selected . In September 1 982, the Regents a uthorized architects' specifications, and in May 1 983 ground was broken just north of Olson Auditori u m . Today the b u i ld i n g i s virtually complete, with dedication in January 1 985. The first classes in the new facility will begin in February. It was on the occasion of the groundbreaking that the Regents announced the name of the new building: the William O. Rieke SCi­ ence Center. Dr. Rieke, the university's 1 1th and current president. personifies P U and the type of graduates it seeks to produce. A PLU science graduate himself, class of 1 953, he spent the first 22 years of his career in the health sciences. Since his inauguration at PLU in 1 975, he has worked tirelessly to build a university with a Q uality faculty and academic program, support­ ed by the finest facilities possible, all within the context of PLU's

Dr. and Mrs. William O. Rieke

Christian heritage and emphasis. The new Rieke Science Center will allow the Natural Sciences to flourish i n many new w a y s , perhaps few of which can present1y be forseen. The Center will enhance science instruction by allowing greater faculty and stu­ d e nt i nteraction w ithi n a nd among the disciplines. There is space for computer science and engineering, both programs in great demand, to grow. More space, more modern eQuipment. more time and more interaction will insure the vitality of the Natur­ al Sciences at PLU into the 2 1 st century. The faith, the commitment. and the investment of thousands of g roups and individuals in this great project will soon begin to bear tangible fruits. The community, and society at large, will be en­ riched.

New Science Building Name Honors PLU's 11th And Current President A resolution by the PLU Board of Regents made public May 22, 1 983, announced that the newest campus academic building would be known as the William O. Rieke Science Center, honoring PLU's 1 1th and current president. There were several reasons why the Regents choice was uniquely appropriate. Dr. Rieke and his wife, Joanne, are the inspirational and guiding forces behind not only the capital campaign that made the new building possible, but all areas of the university's educational en­ deavor - academic, social, physic­ al and spiritual. PLU's president is an exemplary

product of Pacific Luthera n 's N atural Sciences program. He graduated summa cum Jaudewith a degree in biology in 1 953. For the next 22 years he served in the health sciences field as a student. teacher, researcher and adminis­ trator. For many years he was among the .nation's elite in the area of transplant biology and did some of the original research which made organ transplantation possible. He received PLU's Distin­ guished Alumnus Award in 1 970. The naming also perpetuated a long-standing campus tradition: seven existing campus buildings bear the names of former presi­ dents.

state-Of-The-Art Facilities, Eq uip ment

Foundation pouring - October 1983

Health sciences, computer sci­ ences and engineering continue to be among the most promising careers of the future. The PLU Division of Natural Sci­ ences is presently offering highly successful programs leading to careers in these and many other a re a s . These programs have thrived for years on the strength of the dedication of the Natural Sciences faculty, in spite of severe­ Iy inadequate facilities. For example, the percentage of successful applications from PLU students to medical and dental schools is more than twice the national average.

Will Com ple m e nt Exemplary Tea c h i ng ing gives students the best of two settings - breadth at PLU and depth i n an engi neering specialty at another university. PLU has formal ag reements with Colu mbia and Stanford, but students may transfer to any accredited four­ year eng ineering program and receive the sa me two degrees. A four-year Engineering-Physics degree offers a versatility to stu ­ dents. It is more applied than a physics degree and more theoret­ ical than the usual engineering degree. A four-year Electrical En­ gineering major is under consider­ ation. The PLU Mathematics major pre­ pares students for a variety of careers. Many students have ea rn­ ed national recog nition among their peers as a result of the annual international Putnam mathemat­ ics competition PLU enters a team each year. The division's Ph ysics major, like others in the Natu ral Sciences, emphasizes a low-studentteacher ratio and the opportu nity to en-

gage i n independent research projects (see page 8l.

The lII ost end.ring prod.ct A university's final, most endur­ ing product is its alumni. The rec o g n i z ed ach ieveme nts of those alumni are one measure of an institution's impact on society. Any attempt to list the most prominent of graduates must be undertaken with the awareness and disclaimer that for each one noted, there are many equally deserving . Following are the na mes of several graduates from Pacific Lutheran University's Division of Natural Sciences who have earned particular disti nctio n . Among them a re 11 of PLU's 30 Disting ­ uished Alumni, the highest honor bestowed by the PLU Alumni As­ sociation. It is noteworthy that all but three g raduated during the de­ cade between the early '50s and early '60s, when Pacific Lutheran was growing rapidly in both size and quality of its academic prog­ rams. Ten years from now the number might well be i ncreased by several fold as graduates now in their 20s and 30s make their marks on society. Heading the list by virtue of his position as president of PLU and the fact that the new science complex is named in his honor is Dr. William O. Rieke. Prior to his tenure at PLU, he spent 22 years in the health sciences, and was rank­ ed as one of the world's elite in research in transpla ntation biolo­ gy and mechanism by which the body accepts or rejects tissue and organ grafts. Rieke is one of eight on the list who earned distinction in medical or medicine-related fields, not surprising since PLU's pre-med and pre-dentistry programs have m a i nta i ned a h i g h reputation since before World War I I . Dr. M . Roy Schwarz, featured speaker at the science center dedication Jan. 27, is a vice-presi­ dent of the American Medical Association, specializing in educa­ tion and scientific research . D r .

PLU Al u m Guides AMA ProJects FOCu sing On Future Of Hea lth Ca re

By Judy Davis

M . Roy Schwa rz, M.D., '59, foresees the academic medical community becoming more in­ volved in the American Medical Association (AMA). "After World War II, the AMA became pre-occupied with socio­ economic matters; now, those interests are bei ng balanced by an emphasis on science and ethics " said Dr. Schwarz, vice president for medical education and scientific policy for the AMA. "We need to keep in mind it was the academic community, after all, which established the AMA in 1 846. " I n his current post. Dr. Schwarz is responsible for all educational and scientific concerns of the AMA, including : - The AMA's role i n under­ graduate medical education: ac­ creditation of all medical schools res ide ncy programs and allied health programs (except physical therapy) in the United States. - Physician accreditation. - Drug evaluations conducted by 20 AMA scientists . - Determ ining the effective­ ness of technological advances and procedures. - Policy positions of the AMA concerning basic bio-med ical re­ search .

- Provid ing leadership for an i nternat i o n a l tr i b u n a l w h i c h names drugs such a s interferon. Dr. Schwarz' areas of responsi­ bility also include nutrition, aging, occupational health and preven­ tive medicine. In his capacity, Dr. Schwarz does extensive travel ing out of AMA offices in Chicago. "Last week, for example, I gave speeches at Tufts Medical School and Eisenhower Medical Center and debated former Health, Edu­ cation and Welfa re Secretary Joseph Califa no," revea led Dr. Schwarz in mid-November. Overall, the AMA is focusing on ways to reduce the cost of hea lth care, according to Dr. Schwarz . "We've found 80 to 85 percent of physicians in the United States have frozen their fees for one year, in compliance with a request from the AMA," he ind icated. Dr. Schwarz said the AMA has embarked on a four-year Health Policy Agenda Project which is expected to evolve into a "bl uep­ rint" for providing health care in the United States. "When completed , the project will outline guidelines for deter­ mining the man power, education­ al programs and research needed in the health-care system in the future, " explained Dr. Schwarz. He added, "We will also be looking at the role the federal

government should play in this system . " Prior to joining the AMA ad ­ ministrative staff, Dr. Schwarz was vice-chancellor for academic af­ fairs at the University of Colorado School of Medici ne. He also served as dean of the U of C Medical School. Dr. Schwarz has been an as­ sociate dean for academic affai rs at the University of Washington. While at the U of W, he earned international recognition for es­ tablishi ng the Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WAMD prog­ ram for medical education. Under the prog ram, campus classes, courses at fou r other universities training prog rams in private prac� tices and local hospitals and even satell ite- beamed teaching ses­ sions are used to train medical stud ents fro m states without medical schools. Dr. Schwarz revealed he was " recruited" to become part of the academic medical community by hi� �Iose friend and colleague, Dr. William O. Rieke, PLU president. "Dr. Rieke and his wife are godparents to my 1 7-yea r-old son, Ryan," said Dr. Schwarz . He and his wife, the former. Thelma Nygaard, '56. also have a daug hte� Tanna. 14.

Dr. Philip Wigen, a 1 984 Disting­ u ished Alumnus and professor of physics at Ohio state University, has spea rheaded cooperative p rog rams with scientists from many countries, inclu d i n g the Soviet Union. This year's other Distinguished Alumnus, Dr. Ronald Heyer, is one of two i nternationally prominent herpetologists and museum ad­ ministrators. He is a curator at the Smithsonian Institution, Dr. David Wake is director of the Museum of

vertebrate Zoology at the Univer­ sity of California-Berkeley. Dr. James Freisheim is a profes­ sor of biochemistry at the Univer­ s ity of C i n c i n nati School of Medicine. Dr. Christy Ulleland, a Seattle pediatrician, is widely known for research on alcoholism in pre­ gnant mothers. Another Seattle physician, Dr. Donald Keith, has headed the Washington State Medical Association. Dr. Peter Wang, until recently a professor of mathematics and

national security affairs at the Naval Post Graduate SChool in Monterey, Calif . , is also a threat forecasting expert. Another na­ tional security technology expert is Dr. Fred Wikner, formerly with the U.S. Department of Defense. Two PLU professors with inter­ national reputations are Dr. Jens Knudsen in biology and Dr. Fred Tobiason in chemistry.

Tobiason Involves Students In Research That Earns International Attention Watching soft-spoken Dr. Fred Tobiason ' teach or counsel with students, one might be surprised to learn that he is an international­ ly-recognized research chemist. Like his faculty colleagues at . Pacific Lutheran University, the 48year-old professor's first love is teach ing, and the recognition he has ea rned from col l ea g u e s a round the world is a bonus. During the fall of 1 983, Tobiason was invited to present a series of nine lectures in Japan and Taiwan at companies, universities and sci­ entific meetings. His topic, struc-

Fred Tobiason

tural properties of phenol formal­ dehyde resins, wouldn't mean much to non-chemists, but his research and expertise can be of major import to chemists de­ veloping all kinds of products. "It is difficult for a research scientist to say how his work is being applied," Tobiason said . "For example, polymers based on phenol formaldehyde have wide usage, depending upon how they are prepared . It could be adhesives that hold wood products, like plywood, together, or molded plastic or metal materials like dis-

tributor caps, transmission parts, and so on . "We usually don't know how our i nformation is being used, " he continued. "We publish, and other scientists read about our work. We know that because of the hund r­ eds of responses we receive. Our work may give them an idea on how to formulate something, or help change the way they are thinking about the properties they are working on . " Tobiason's concern for students is appa rent in both his research and publications. PLU students are virtually always i nvolved in his research projects, a n d conse­ quently become co-authors of his articles. In addition to his Far East lecture tour last year, Tobiason has work­ ed with scientists in Germany and Finland . He is participating in a jOint research project with a re­ nowned chemist at Johan nes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany, and spent time several years ago at the University of Helsinki . Another research project took him to Louisiana State University, and he recently spoke at a meet­ ing of the American Chemical Society in Washington, D.C. This past summer and currently, Tobiason and his students are working on cyclic phenol formal­ dehyde polymer samples brought back from Kanazawa University in Japan. These samples have special properties; they form cages that can trap other small molecules or ions, and are of special interest as potential catalyst models. A 1 958 PLU g raduate, Tobiason has taught at the university since 1 966. His numerous honors have included Outstanding Educator in America (1 971 ), PLU Regency Pro­ fessor (1 975) and Danforth Fellow (1 978>. In addition, he is visible throughout the community as an advocate of environmental con­ cerns.

Olsen Endowment Fund Supports undergraduate Research program The Robert C . Olsen Endowment Fund, created at Pacific Lutheran University in 1 977 in honor of a retired chemistry professor, sup­ ports an Underg raduate Research Program that has been an attrac­ tive feature of the PLU chemistry program for many years. During the past five years, the Olsen Fund has provided summer stipends for 13 students, who have assisted PLU chemistry facul­ ty members on a variety of pro­ jects or have conducted their own research. During that period, five stu­ dents have read papers at regional scientific meetings, and three have seen their publications in scientific journals. One student, 1 984 graduate Terri Harmon, received the award for best presentatio n at the American Chemical Society U nder­ g raduate Research Symposium in Portland last year. In addition, six members of the chemistry faculty have had re­ search published during thattime. Many of the papers have had students as co-authors. Work done by some students was i ncluded in lectures presented by chemistry professor Dr. Fred Tobiason in Japan last fall. Of the former summer research prog r a m students who have graduated, all have gone on to medical or graduate school. The Summer Research Program began in the early 70s with fund­ ing from several sources, includ­ ing the National Science Founda­ tion and Research Corporation. As those funds have become increas­ ingly scarce, PLU's own Olsen Fund has permitted the program to continue. Olsen taught chemistry at PLU from 1 947-76.

Dedicated Faculty Nucleus Guides PL U Natural Science Into Modern Era

The pioneers Areas In The William O . Rieke Science center have been named in honor of these former faculty members: Anders Ramstad

The late Anders Ramstad was the founder of the Pacific Luthe­ ran chemistry department. Ap­ pOinted to the faculty in 1 925, he ta u g ht the fi rst college level chernistry cou rses a fte r t h e academy had become a junior col lege. During his 36-year career on the Parkland ca mpus, he also taught a l l of the science and math courses except biology at one time or another. In addition to being the lone member of the chemistry faculty for 21 years, Ramstad served as dean of men and was the school's first football coach . His women's basketball team was a reg ional power. Shortly after his retirement in 1 961 , PLU 's science building was named Ramstad Hall In his honor. A chemistry student research laboratory in the new Rieke Sci­ ence Center will also bear his name. A 1 91 4 grad uate of St. Olaf College, he attended Luther Semi­ nary and University of Washing­ ton. He received an honorary doctor's degree from Luther Col­ lege in Decorah, la . Ramstad died in 1 981 at the age of 89. In 1 983 the Ramstad fam ily established the endowed Anders and Emma Ramstad Scholarship Fund, which provides stipends an nua lly for outsta nding chemis­ try majors. •

Harold Leraas

For decades the pre-med and pre-dental programs at PLU have enjoyed an outstand ing reputa­ tion and enviable success record . Its graduates are accepted into professional schools at more than twice the national rate. The man given credit for esta b­ lishing that reputation is Dr. Harold ( H ud) Leraas, who joi ned the Pacif­ ic Lutheran faculty as a biology professor in 1 935. Leraas himself beca me a dentist in the '40s and maintained a Parkland practice in additio to his teaching load until 1 960. He al so served in the U .S. Army during World War II. A graduate of Luther College in D e co r a h , la . , h e ea rned h is graduate degrees at the University of M ichiga n .

He retired from teaching in 1 974 after 39 years on the PLU faculty. Shortly before his reti rement he was presented with an Outstand­ ing Teacher award by the ca mpus chapter of Blue Key, a national male student service honorary. Scores of his former students, now doctors and dentists across the nation, have contributed near­ ly a half million dollars to establish the Leraas Lecture Hall in the New Rieke Science Center in his honor. •

Olaf Jordahl

Olaf Jordahl. another graduate of Luther College, became Pacific Luthera n's first "official"profes­ sor of physics In 1 940. He came to Parkland from orthwestern Un­ iversity, and i nitially set up sh op i n the basement of Xavier Hall. He took a leave of absence for a year in 1 944-45 to work on the Ato m i c Energy Comm issio n ' s Manhattan Project at the Universi­ ty of Cal ifo rnia - Berkeley . E s ­ teemed i n h is profession through­ out his career, he served on a National Science Foundation ad ­ visory panel i n Washington, D.C. i n 1 963. A colleague recalled, "Dr. Jor­ da h i was a we l l - o rg a n i z e d , thorough a n d precise person . His lab experiments and demonstra­ tions were a JOY and a challenge. " Jordahl earned his master's de­ g ree at t h e U n i v e r s i ty o f Pittsbu rgh and his Ph . D . at the Universityof Wisconsi n . At Wiscon­ sin, he also worked under provi­ sions of a post-doctoral research fellowship. He was a member of the Frank­ lin-Pierce School Board for six years, serving as its president from 1 955-58. He retired from PLU in 1 969. Now 82 , he lives in Parkland near PLU . A faculty research laboratory in the new Rieke Science Center is named in his honor.

R.obert C. Olsen

After World War II, enro llment at Pacific Lutheran ncreased ra pidly with retu rning Gis. A scien e build­ ing was built in 1 947 and several n ew science faculty members were appointed. Robert C. Olsen became the

second member of the chemistry department faculty after serving for 10 years as head of an electro­ p lating laborato ry at General Motors. "The idea of service" and "the joy of teach ing" were Dr. Olsen's motivations during t,is 31 -year teaching career. In 1 97 5 a l umni and friends gathered to honor him on Robert C. Olsen Day at PLU . Former stu ­ dents who are now leading pro­ fessionals in medicine, industry and teaching presented scientific papers, later published by the PLU Press. Grateful alumni also established an endowed Olsen Fund at PLU which provides sum mer under­ graduate research fellowships for chemistry students. In addition, a Rieke Science Center chemistry instruction laboratory will bear his name. Olson ea rned his bachelor's and doctor's deg rees at Michigan State University. .



Burton ostenson

Burto n Ostenson and Harold Leraas had been friends since boyhood. Both grew up in Min­ nesota and attended Luther Col­ elge in Decorah, la. They both went on to grad uate school at the University of Michigan and began their teaching careers there. From the time he arrived in Parkland in 1 935, Dr. Leraas sang the praises of the Northwest and Pacific Lutheran . Finally i n 1 947, when the post-war enrollment boom allowed expansion of the biology faculty, Leraas persuaded Dr. Ostenson to come west. Os­ tenson had earned his Ph.D. in zoology. During his 30 years on the PLU facu lty, Ostenson created and taught nu merous cou rses while serving continuously as cha irman of the biology department, then general science, and finally earth sciences. "In addition to its strong pre­ professional program, PLU has been consistently strong in field biology," Ostenson said. A numb­ er of PLU alumni have become promi nent in that field. Ostenson has cond ucted re­ search i n the Arctic under the auspices of the Atom ic Energy Com mission and the Antarctic for the National Sc ence Foundation. A museum in the new Rieke Science Center will be named in his honor. •

Irene Creso

Biologists and students study­ ing the flora of Pierce Cou nty for many years to come will benefit from the more than 30 years of effort by Dr. Irene Creso. Since the mid-'60s, Dr. Creso, now 78, has collected, preserved and verified over 6,000 specimens of plants now located in PLU's Creso Herbarium The herba rium has been relocated, and will be an integral part of the PLU biology program in the Rieke Science Center. Originally appointed to the PLU faculty in 1 947, Creso returned to University of Puget Sound, her alma mater, from 1 956-65, but has been back at PL since. She Quit full-ti me teachi g in 1 971 , official­ ly retired in 1 975, but has con­ tinued some teachi ng and i nvolve­ ment with the PLU biology depart­ ment during the past decade. H e r post-retirement projects have i ncluded a Pierce County floristiC study and books on West­ ern Washington flowering plants and Pierce County "Twigs. " In 1 979 PLU recognized her many ach ievements with an hon­ orary doctors deg ree, and In 1 984 the Alumni Association conferred its Special Recog nition Award . •

Josef Running

Josef Running, another Min­ nesota native, was one of the several Natural Sciences faculty hired during the boom years of the late '40s. He was a mathemat­ ics teacher. Runn ing came to PLU late in a long teaching career that had beg un in 1 91 6. Arriving in Parkland in 1 948, he retired in 1 960. He earned his bachelor's deg ree at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn . , and his master's deg ree at the University of Minnesota in 1 941 . Much of his teaching career was spent in secondary schools in North and South Da kota . Perhaps due to that experience, he was particularly effective with begin­ ning students at PLU . One COl­ league said, "He had a talent for making it seem log ical and easy. " Now 87, Running lives in Port­ land, Ore.

e realization of New Chinese Ties Renew cultural Bond For Eminent PL U Ph ysicist

By Jim Peterson

Fourteen-year-old Kwong-Tin Tang fled China with his parents in 1 950, shortly after the takeover of his homeland by the com­ munists. The 34 years since that hurried departu re have been largely ones of tragedy for the people of his country. Tang has lived with that tragedy, even as le esta blished a reputation as one of the world's elite research scientists . This past spring the Pacific Lutheran Un­ iversity physics professor was welcomed back to China to deliver a series of lectures on atomic and molecular physics. Chengdu Un iversity of Science and Technology made him an honorary professor and gave him an open i vltation to return whenever he could . Tang's reaction to the opportunity to return home reflected the concern and love for people that has marked his career. "There is no question that what commun­ ism has done to China has been a disaster," he said. "But China is awakening from that nightmare," he continued , citing late Octob­ er announcements of fu rther econom ic policy changes in the Peoples' Republic as further evidence of that awa ken ing. "What is important is how policies affect people's lives, not what they call their system." Tang believes that living conditions in his homeland are improving and there are more individua l freedoms. For that reason he is happy to share his knowledge with his Chinese colleagues. "If there is anything I can do to help in some small way . . . " he mused. Tang's desire to help changed the direction of his career 17 years ago. Options could have been plentiful after he earned his doctorate In physics at Columbia University in 1 965. For three years the University of Washington alumnus had been a senior basic research scientist at the Boeing Compa ny i n Newport Beach, Calif., and designed a computer program that vastly improved the company's pPOduction rate of crystal filters. Though his career star was rising, he was dissatisfied . "I wanted to go back to what I loved most - teaching," he recalled . "My parents want­ ed me closer to their home in Seattle, and we are Lutherans, so they suggested PLU. I came because I was impressed with President (Robert) Mcrtvedt; I decided to stay because of the comfort he extended to me when my mother died in 1 969. I then believed PLU was a place where I could place my loyalty." Tang continues to believe teaching is his calling in spite of his growing international eminence. The research that earns him acclaim interests him "because it contributes

K. T. Tang

to my teach ing. It gives me enthusiasm. If I am not enthusiastIc, I can't impart it to my students. "It is gratifying when, with some students, it Clicks, and it may change the course oftheir lives, " he observed . Tang recal ls one mid -70s "confused an muddled" freshman who became the best student in the class. Later the student did graduate work at Columbia and Un iversity of Southern California. He has since been a successful engineer for Bell Laboratories and IBM and has taught compu­ ter science at the University of Colorado. Not only have many of his students become successful professionals, many have become personal friends. Though he has cut back his research grant proposals in recent years, he has received over a quarter m illion grant dollars from such sources as National Science Foundation, Research Corporation and Petroleum Re­ search Fund . A sophisticated com puter in his office ("Even better than the university mainfra me for some scientific work") which makes much of his research feasible and which he shares with students, is the practical result of some grant money. He has taken students as partners on many ofthe research projects that have resulted in over 70 publications in professional journals. Tang's reputation has attracted many more speaking invitations than he can ac­ cept. One he did accept several years ago was from an international conference on atomic and molecular collisions in Norway, where he was one of five featured speakers. He makes

regular speaking and research visits to Max Planck institute in Gottingen , Germa ny. Ox­ ford University in England, Canada and Hong Kong a re other international stops on his speaking itinerary. He has made frequent visits to Hong Kong and Taiwan, often returning with prom ising prospective PLU students Over the years he has "recruited" more than 100 students. And he is helpi ng Academy Sinica, Taiwan's high­ est academy, establish an institute of atomic and molecular science. There are already un iversity exchange ag reements with institutions in Taiwan and the PRC and there have been student and faculty exchanges in both directions. in mid­ October, a delegation of scientists from Chengdu University, visiting Was h i ngton State on a sister-state/province tour. made a special point of stopping at PLU. They expressed interest in closer ties. and another exchange agreement is a possibility. Of more than 1 .000 institutions of higher education in China. Chengdu is one of only 37 designated as "key" universities. One of its formally assigned missions: to develop atom­ ic and molecular science in China. Tang's and PLU's China connections may be only beginning. For the university, and for i nternational relations, the connections will mean mutual benefits and improved under­ standing . For Tang, it may mean the gradual healing of a deeply personal. cultural wound and the realization of dreams that for long had seemed never to be fulfilled.
