PLU Professor Reports

TaCOma May Be ·City Of The·9 s,' say Local Residents In survey " People say Tacoma may be a city of the '90s, or the 2 1 st cent u ry," says Christine Hansvick, a PLU psychology professor who recently com p l eted an opin ion s u rvey regarding the city and Pierce County. "The potential here is great because of the beautiful natural scenery and the rela­ tively small size," she added. Survey respondents also see Tacoma as a good place to raise a fam i ly. It's neighbor­ hoods are an appeal ing feature. " People say that Tacoma has the potential to blos­ som. They use words l ike 'Sleeping Beauty,' 'Cinderella' or 'diamond in the rough,'" said Hansvick. Nearly 2, 300 Tacoma residents respond­ ed to the survey d i stributed in February and M a rch through loca l b usinesses and cham bers of com m erce. R es pondents averaged nearly 40 years of age and 1 5 years of schooling. Two-thirds of them were professionals and managers.

Sociology p rofessor Dav i d Swa n son recently coord inated a Pierce Cou nty q u ali­ ty of l ife survey sponsored by the Tacoma Urban League. I n te rviewe r s h i red t h r o u g h U r b a n League training program s called o r visited more than 900 area households and cov­ ered such topics as jobs, police a n d f i re protection, crime and health issues. The survey fou n d 50% "very satisfied" with q u al ity of l ife; only 5% "very dissati s­ fied." A community's marks usually aren't that high, Swanson ind icated. Availabil ity of good jobs and police p ro­ tection received low ratings, while fire pro­ tection m a rks were h ig h . Twice as many believed t he'{ were "better off" t h a n those w h o bel ieved they were "worse off" than five years ago. Swanson reported. Chris Hansvick

Hansvick recently briefed the Tacoma­ Pierce County Chamber of Commerce and city officials on the su rvey res u lts. Mayor Doug Sutherland observed , "T h e data seem to show that there are some really positive and good things in Tacoma. B u t there is room for i mprovement. " Although the infamous Tacoma "aroma" is less evident now, and much of the down­ town area is being renovated and rebu ilt. the survey showed that the old "smel ly, drab" i mage lingers. Sutherl and added, "We sti l l need to i m prove the i mage of the city," noting that many i m pressions are based on free­ way drive-throughs, w h ich do not reveal the beautifu l scenic vistas, parks, h istorical landmarks, new arch itect u re and other attractions. Hansvick noted that Tacoma's cu ltura l l ife a lso w a s praised, w i t h P L U and U niv­ ersity of Puget Sou nd recognized in that evaluation. Tacoma's amenities rem a i n a fairly wel l­ kept secret . however. The survey showed that people who have l ived in the area for more than 1 0 years are significantly more satisfied with l i fe i n Tacoma and Pierce County than shorter-term residents. H ans­ vick said longtime residents may have had time to d i scover the area's more desirable featu res. It may also be that residents of less than 1 0 years sti l l regularly compare Tacoma with other cities in w h i c h t hey have l ived and may be more l ikely to move out of the area than l onger-term resi­ dents. Hansvick is in the process of completing analysis of other portrons of the s u rvey and wou l d l ike to i nclude Seattle in her future research . She a l ready has informa­ tion on five Ca n a d i a n cities, which she i ncluded i n her doctoral d issertation. She also plans another Tacoma su rvey in five years to see if people's perceptions have changed.

he cond ition of the poor in developing and underdevel­ oped countries w i l l lead to greater unrest and upheaval if it is not m ore effect i v e l y addressed. The warning was i ssued by Argentinian theologian Jose M ig­ uez-Bonino during a week-long Sum mer Institute of Theology in July at Pacific Lutheran Universi­ ty. He was a featured speaker at the annual clergy-family gather­ ing sponsored by the Lutheran Institute for Theol ogical E d u ca­ tion (UTE), located at PLU and directed by Dr. Walter P i l grim . T h e former presi d ent of the Evangelical Institute for H i g her Theological St u d ies in Buenos Aires spoke of the two critical issues facing Argent ina and oth­ er Lat i n A m erican cou ntr ies: stagg e r i n g economics a nd h u man rights abuses. He pointed out that significant progress in both areas w i l l requ ire more act ive partici pa­ tion from the developed coun­ tries. Argentina is "better off" than other Latin American countries, yet it is b urdened by a 550 bil­ l i on de b t . M i g u ez-Bonino explained, "Over 50 percent of our people are poor or lower class; yet that is better than the regional average of over 70 per­ cent." Latin America trade surpl uses, if any, m u st service the interest on t h i s debt rather than be invested in i nternal d evelop­ ment, he i nd i cated. "That cre­ ates a contraction of the econo­ my, u n e m ploy m e n t and inflation," h e continued. The twin econo m i c malad ies drive more and m ore people into lower and lower c l a sses. "T h i s creates m ore soc i a l unrest," he said, "and i f these countries default on their debts, there will be chaos."


Developed countries w i l l not escape the effects, warned the theolog ian. "It wou l d seem in the self-i nterest of the U .s. and other countries to develop clos­ er relationsh i ps with the peopl e of Latin America," h e s a i d , add­ ing that to date there has been l ittle flexibi l ity demonstrated. M i g uez-Bonino exp l a i ned that Argentina and Brazil are merg­ ing some aspects of their eco­ nom ics, which w i l l g i ve them greater strength as a bargaining unit. Argentina is presently enjoying a democrat ic form of govern­ ment after years of authoritari­ an m i litary rule. But the threat of authoritarianism is never far removed, and it is strengthened by soc i a l ferm ent . And with authorization comes repression and h uman rights setbacks. M iguez-Bonino was one of the founders of the Per ma nent Assem b l y for H u man R i g hts, which spoke out agai nst violence and h u man rig hts abuses d u ring the nine-year m i l itary reg i me which was deposed in 1 98 3 . As one of the world's most promi­ nent c h u rch men, a mem ber of the executive com m ittee of the World Counci l of C h u rches, he escaped persecution, but one of his colleagues was captured and tortured. " T h e mil itary menta l ity is strong in our societ y , " he observed . "It is ingrained in soci­ ety, the schools and fam i l ies. Our task is to change that mentali­ ty." Nor have h u man rights been historically i mportant. "We need continu ing education in h u man rights," said M i guez-Bonino. The d u a l strugg les for eco­ nomic well being and social jus­ tice have transformed the Latin American church. It has become m u ch m ore soc i a l ly a ct i ve i n spite of resistance on t h e part of some hierarch ies and power groups in the churches.

e l i g ion i s flowering in C h i ­ na, accord ing t o t h e Chris­ tian Science Monitor, wh ich began an in-depth, six-part series of art icles on R e l i g i on in C h ina Aug. 2 . A visiting Chinese edu cator, Prof. Chen Yongl i ng, made Simi­ lar observations d uring an Aug. 1 lecture at PLU . Chen, a senior scholar at the Central Inst itute of Nationa l ities in Beij ing, has studied ethnic m inorities in Chi­ na for nearly 50 years. It is among these " m inorities" that relig ious influences remain strongest, though there is grow­ ing interest among members of t h e Han major i ty as we l l , he pointed out. Accord ing to the Monitor, nu m bers of relig i o u s worsh i p­ pers have grown as people have become more confident of the official pol i cy of rel i gious tol er­ ance. Chen exp l a i ned that the Chinese constitution g uarantees relig i o u s freedo m , as w e l l as equality for m inorities, but that t hese g u arantees have not a l ways been reflected in govern­ mental policy. The government of the Peo­ ple's Repu bl i c, founded in 1 949, officially tolerated religion, b u t b ro u g h t for m a l rel igions u nder state control. During the Cu ltura l Revolution (1 966-76), rel i g ious wors h i p was banned, believers were prosecut­ ed and p l aces of wors h i p were destroyed. Chen bla med the tur­ moil on the "u ltra-left" and the "Gang of Four," the governing leaders d u ring that decade. Offi c i a l pol i c ies m a ndat i ng eq u a l ity for m i norities in fact encourages re l igious activity, Chen indicated. Chan explained that the desig­ nation, "minority," is offi c i a l ly based only on nu m bers of peo­ ple and not as a political power definition as is often the case in other cou ntries. He explained that 55 ethnic minorities togeth­ er total less than seven percent of the Chinese population, while the Han maj ority comprises more than 93 percent. He also expl ained t h at t h e


n u m erical m i nor i t i es inc l u de complex m ixture of cultural, reli­ g ious and racial groups. C h en a l so e x p l a i n e d t h at although m inorities represent a t iny fraction of t h e pop u l ace, t h ey effecti vely control more than 60 percent of the China land area in the north , north­ west. southwest and south. The h uge Han majority is concentrat­ ed in the eastern half of the vast land. The power of m inorities is rem­ forced by a com p l ex arrange­ ment of "autonomous" regional and local governments that con­ trol most d om est i c affairs, h e expla ined . H e referred t o the recent widespread u se of local money to b u i ld and restore tem­ p l es and m onasteries rath er than invest in the local econo­ my. Accord ing to the Monitor, the government sees that trend as out of control, "a wanton waste of money and manpower and a major obstacle to peasants get­ ting rich throug h hard work," it quoted the People's Daily. Chen a lso pointed out t h at m inorities comprise 1 4-1 5 per­ cent of the National People'S Congress, more than twice the percentage of the people t h ey represent. He noted with irony that some seemingly Han C h i nese were applying for m inority status on t h e basis of t h e i r ancestry because of the perceived advan­ tages of m inority stat us. One such advantage he cited, for exa m p le, i s lower entrance requ i rements for m inorities at m ajor universities. This develop­ ment. he indicated, is a dramatic testimony to the i m provement of minority stat us i n China . C h e n contended t h a t recent demonstrations in Ti bet were inspired by s m a l l grou ps and instigated from abroa d . But he also ad m itted that pol i cy " m i s­ takes" had been made there and elsew h ere in China during the Cu ltural Revolution. He called attention to the culContinued on page 14

The following are excerpts from an article prepared for the October 1 988 issue of Business Scene by Sandie Merrill. Merrill is editor of the PLU School of Business Administra­ tion periodical.


he A merican government's decision m a king p rocess is "proh i b it i ve l y slow," plac i ng American business at a d isadvan­ tage in the internat ional trade arena. The observation was m a d e d u ring a s u m m e r ca m p u s vi sit by A bd u l l a h E I-Kuwaiz, w h o earned a n M BA and MA in social sc i ences/econom i c s at P L U in 1 973. is EI-Kuwaiz a ssoc i ate secretary-general for econom ic affairs of the Gulf Cooperation Counci l in R iyad h , Sa u d i A rab ia, and chai rman and chief execu­ t i ve officer of the Arab M one­ tary Fund in Abu Dhabi, United Arab E m i rates. He is "on loan" from a position as deputy m i nister in the Sau d i Arabian Ministry o f Finance. E I - K u w a i z exp l ained, " R igtlt now, you have m ore than 1 0 very s i m ple, m odel agreements on protection and promotion of investment t hat have a l ready been signed, and none of them have been ratified by Congress yet." By contrast, the G u l f Coopera­ t ion Cou nci l , a new S i x-nation organization s i m i l a r to the E u ro­ pean Econo m i c Com m u nity, or Com mon M a rket, w i l l ratify an agreement with the Eu ropeans in Decem ber which w i l l give a lot of trade advantages to the Eu ro­ peans, he indicated. "If the A mericans do not come along, they w i l l be left out," he contin u ed . " Before, A m ericans have always been fi rst; most of the joint ventu res, at least in Sau d i Arabia, have been with Americans." EI-Kuwaiz explained t h at the new GCC and AMF brighten the opport unities for joint ventu res of a l l kinds. There a re a lot of incentives, he indicated, i nc l u d­ ing loans under very concession­ ary terms, no restrictions on

transfer of proceeds or capital, and inexpensive raw m aterials and labor. "The infrastruct u re is there; we have built rai l roads, ports, ai rports, and b u i l d ings. The mon­ ey is there. We need ideas and commitment," he said. EI-Kuwaiz continued , "We want to t ransfer m anagerial and sci­ entific technology to our part of the world, and there is no way this can be done except through pa rtners h i ps and jOint ven­ tu res." He noted that " most foreign executives l ike working in Sau d i A ra b i a . T h e Sa u d i s a re open, m ost of t h e m speak Eng l i s h , shops a re stocked w i t h every­ thing, and we're only a hop away from E u rope. " H e observed t h a t American strengths i nc l u de the abil ity to d e l i ver, and to p resent them­ selves with openness, sympathy and understanding of others. American lack of understand­ ing of other cu ltu res is a stereo­ type, he asserted. "Perh a p s b eca u se of t h e i r openness, i t i s harder for them to gloss over b l u nders, b u t every c u l t u re finds it d i fficu l t to understand others," he added. He advised American business schools to present lots of inter­ national case stud ies, lectu res by i nternat i onal exec u t i ves and act u a l overseas experiences, if possible. He recal led case stu d i es offered by the PLU School of Business Adm inistration as being "very, very helpful." When he came to college in A m e r i ca 1 6 years ago, t h e re were "no u niversiti es to speak of" i n Sa u d i A ra b i a . " N ow we have seven, and a re beginning to have more gradu ates than jobs for t h em to f i l l , " he observed. EI-Kuwaiz i s active on execu­ tive com mittees and governing boards for a number of interna­ tional banks and economic orga­ nizations in England as w e l l as the A ra b i an Penins u l a . Though he travels a great dea l , this was h i s fi rst v i s i t to t h e Pacific Northwest since h i s gradu ation .•

Martin Schneiter

artin Schneiter 78, l i ke Abd u l la h E I-Kuwa iz. is a PLU alu mnus heavily involved i n t h e world of interna­ tiona l trade and com merce. Du ring a s u m mer visit to PLU, d u ring which he lectu red to an undergrad u ate bu siness pol i cy class, he asserted that America has a strong fut u re in Eu ropean markets, but pointed out short­ com i ngs that a re stu m b l ing blocks to America's trade poten­ tial. Based in Basel , Switzerland, Schneiter i s head of b usiness coordination for CIBA-Geigy AG, a m u lti-national chem ical corpora­ tion. H i s position req u i res exten­ sive knowledge of languages and customs; he speaks five languag­ es. He pred icted increased t rade activity for A m erica in t h e southern E u ropean countries Spain, Ita l y and G reece. "These areas a re l ike the A merican sun­ b e l t , o n l y seve r a l d ec a d e s behind," he said. "Th e i r m ajor assets inc l u de inexpensive labor and capitaL" Schneiter continued, "It is very expensive to set u p E u ropean b usinesses with American dol­ l a rs, but partnersh i p ag ree­ ments, where E u ropean cu rren­ cy stays in E u rope, a re q u ite good investments." He agreed with EI-Kuwaiz that the American government does less than the governments of other countries to promote busi­ ness, but that some countries go too far. Both som et i m es t h ink that certain e mbassies are there only to p romote b u s i ness for t h e i r count ry rath e r t h a n to serve as goodw i l l a mbassadors. He warned that both the U .s. government and American peo­ ple spend too much. "They don't save," he sa i d . "You shou ldn't l ive beyond your means. One day you w i l l have a h uge p roblem, perhaps w i t h u ne m ploym ent and inflation, and it w i l l become a global problem." The American i m age is better today than in years past, Schnei­ ter bel ieves. "Am e ricans a re l i ked v e ry m uch, perhaps


because they are u n derstood better," he said. "They are good salesmen; they sell themselves better than busi­ ness people of other countries, he continued, "but somet i m es . they sell more than t hey can del iver." A merican business has been slow to international ize because its domestic m arket has been so strong, h e indicated, but that is changing. And cou ntries t h at have had to export to prosper have gained an advantage. To b u siness persons of the futu re, he advised, "To succeed today, you have to go overseas. You have to learn the languages and cultures." •

Gundar King A Fulbright-Hayes Scholar in Thailand Gundar King, dean of the PLU School of Business Administration, spent July as a Fulbright-Hayes Scholar in Thailand. King studied economic, social and cultural aspects of development in Thailand, specifically Thai subcontracting to American and Japanese manufacturers. "Thai progress in building skills for a modern economy was most impressive," he said. "They begin in rural shops to learn crafts and to make minor accommodations to industrial cultures. At the high end, Thais have labor and management teams ready to make aircraft parts for Boeing Company." He added. "The Thais are producers at heart. They want to make things. Though they are a step away from the farm, they have the farmer's ethic. And they help each other." King spent the 1987-88 academic year teaching at San Francisco State university. He also recently spoke at the 11th Conference on Baltic Studies at the University of Maryland and to the business faculty at Concordia College in St. Paul, Minn.

Three PLU Professors Honored For Teaching Excellence A commitment to exce l lence i n teaching at Pacific Lutheran U n iversity has been supported for the t h ree years by the Bur­ l i ngton Nort he r n Fou n d a t i o n F a c u lty Achievement Awards program . Awards a r e presented t o t h ree outstand­ ing professors each year. This fal l ' s recipi­ ents are history professor C h r i stopher Browni ng, n u rs i n g professor A n ne Hi rsch and pol itical science p rofessor Ann Kel l e­ her. Browning has been described by one fel­ low professor as "the brig htest and most intel l ect u a l l y respo n s i b l e a n d i ncisive col­ league I have ever known." Another cal led him a "bri l l i ant lect u re r" who receives "excellent" teaching ratings from the vast majority of his students. An expert on the Ho loca u st a n d Nazi pol icy, he has presented fou r papers dur­ ing the past year: two at i nternational con­ ferences in Pa ris and Philadelp�lia and two at national profess i o n a l conferences. He has also published two articles. Hi rsch is comm itted to h i g h sta n d a rds, yet has strong rapport with students, and students seek her cou nsel long after they have completed cou rse work with her, says a colleague. The entire 1 988 se n i o r n u rs i n g c l a ss signed a g lowing letter in support of her nomination.

PLU Ra n ked Among Nation's Top 10 Percent


Pacific Lutheran University is o n e o f 31 4 colleges and u n i versities nationwide select­ ed for i nclusion i n the 1 988-89 edition of Peterson's Competitive Colleges. The l i sted schools represent approxi­ mately 10 percent of a l l American i nstitu­ t ions of h i g he r e d u ca t i o n . Criteria for i nclusion is based on the level of achieve­ ment of entering fresh man classes. The guides present concise informative data essential to h i g h school stu dents i n terested in c h a l len g i n g i nstitutions. It enables students to compare one college with another accurately. In addition, PLU was one of 2 2 5 of t he selected col l eges w h i c h participated in a special Peterson's project to m ake the g u ide available free to h i g h schools that traditiona lly g rad u ate a h i g h percentage of college-bound m inority students.

Paul Ingram

M odern B u d dhist-Christian Dia log u e Is Theme Of N ew Paul I n g ra m Book Christian encounter with Buddhism and Buddhist encounter with Christianity can deepen understanding of both teachings, according to PLU religion professor Paul Ingram. Ingram is the author of a new book, The Modern Buddhist-Christian Dialogue, published earlier this year by Edwin Mellon Press. Although Ingram has specialized in Eastern religions throughout his 2 3-year teaching career and has written extensively about Buddhism and compa rative religions, he was inspired to write this book by his experiences and insights he gained at the First International Conference on Buddhist-Ch ristian Encounter. The event was sponsored by the Department of Religious Studies of the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 1980. The book is intended to add ress troubling questions. "My teaching experience has taught me that students are passionately interested in not only what religious persons have believed and practiced, but what they should believe and practice, given the facts of religious plu ralism," Ingram observed. "In many Instances," he added, "their questions are also my own." In the book, Ingram analyzes important issues emerging from contemporary Buddhist-Christian encounter. One such issue, he pointed out, is the "process of creative transformation" that can occu r in the Budd hist and Christian "Ways" as a consequence of mutual encounter. "The obvious conceptual and experiential differences between Buddhists and Ch ristians need not imply contradiction:' Ing ram said. By opening Ch ristians to realities more fully encou ntered in Buddhist experience, u nderstanding of Biblical tradition can be enriched, and Christian appreciation of its own scriptural foundation revitalized, he indicated. Conversely, Buddhists may appropriate concepts relating to modern existence that are more fully developed in Christian experience, Ingram added. D u ring the conference, which etched itself so deeply in Ingram's consciousness, he observed both Buddhists and'Christians dwelling so completely in the depths of their own religious Ways that they could comprehend and appreciate the authenticity of the others' religious faith and practice. "They learned from one another, appropriated insights from one another, and yet remained fully Buddhist and Christian in their world views," he added. Ingram has written two previous books and numerous articles related to Buddhism and comparative religions. He has taught at PLU since 1975. The new book is available from the PLU Bookstore.

Seventeen years ago a group then known as the PLU Faculty Wives C l u b was searching for a club p roject that wou l d help the u niversity. They conceived a fund-raising p roject. the Yule Boutique, a h uge p re-C h ristmas a rts and crafts ga la. Proceeds from the boutique wou ld benefit the PLU scholarship fund. The project succeeded beyond their most opt i m istic drea m s. Since that time it has b een an annual event in O l son Aud itori­ um, and more than $1 2 5 ,000 has been raised for PLU student scholarships. * * * * *

M a l e c h o ruses a re a t i me­ honored trad ition in Norway; at one t i m e v i rtu a l l y every v i l lage had one. When Norweg ians settled in Washi ngton state, they kept the t radition a l ive. T h i s s u m m e r Tacoma's Normanna M a l e Cho­ rus observed its 1 00th ann iver­ sary by host i n g the Pacific N o rthwest Norwe i g n S i ng e rs Association's "Sa ngerfest '88" at the Sheraton Tacoma Hotel. Highlight of the J u ly 7-9 event was a concert featuring the Nor­ manna Chorus at Pantages Cen­ tre. O rigins of both the Norma nna Chorus and the Association can be traced to Pa rkla n d . The origi­ nal g ro u p was a n octet ca lled the Luthera n Chorus. It later joined a Tacoma e n semble and became the Nord manes Sa ngfor­ e i n i ng . PLU 's o r i g i nal choir a nd band d i rector, Carlo Sperati, also d i rected the Norweg ian singers. In 1 9 20 the chorus chose its p resent name. Gunnar M a l m i n , d irector of the PLU Choi r of the West from 1 9 37-64, di rected the Norm a n na Cho rus for 34 years fol lowing World War II. The present d i rec­ tor, his son Jon M a l m i n of G i g Ha rbor, Wash ., a ss u m ed t h e pod ium i n 1 980. And, as Gun nar's late wife, Dor­ othy, had before her, Jon's wife, Jean, accompan ies the g rou p . Both Jon a n d J e a n are 1 964 PLU a l u m n i . Jon san g in both the Choir of the West and the Nor­ manna Chorus. The e l d e r M a l m i n , now of Sioux Falls, S.D., is d i rector emeri­ tus of the Association. He d i rects at least one Sangerfest song each year. Du ring Sangerfest '88 the 40 Normanna singers were joi ned by 1 60 singers representing cho­ ruses from Los Angeles to Van­ couver, B.C.

O' Nea l Na med New Director Of Bands Thomas J. O'Neal was recently named d i rector of bands at PLU. He will lead the U n i versity Wind Ensemble and Concert Band and teach conducti ng. O'Neal held a s i m i l a r post at Hastings Col lege, Neb.

The State of the U n i versity 1 988 Abridged Report on Yea r T h ree of the Five-Yea r Plan This annual report contains two major elements: (1) general observa­ tions about the state of the univer­ sity, and (2) specifics on progress toward implementation or modifica­ tion of the Five- Year Plan to the Centennial. Addressed to PL U facul­ ty/administration Sept 2, 1988.

es. Under this priority. the u ni­ versity is com mitted to a five­ year effort to increase average total compensation of faculty and staff in such a fashion that du ring those yea rs there would be a net gain of 1 5 % over the cumu lative increase in the Con­ su mer Price I n de x . D u ri n g 1 986/87 and 1 987/88. tota l com­ pensation increases averaging sl ightly g reater that 3% ab ove the Consumer Price Index were made, and placed the un iversity on a stra ight l i n e projection toward the 1 5 % five-year net gain desi red. For the third con­ secutive year, as i m mensely diffi­ cult as it is si mu ltaneou sly to pay mo re, h i re more persons, send more facu lty on better compe nsated sabbaticals a nd hire replacements, the universi­ ty has been fa ithful to the announced intention. I have asked the vice president for finance and operations to prepare several models for bud­ get building for 1 989/90 which would assign an even higher pri­ ority to salaries and provide as g reat a one-time salary incre­ ment as possible above o u r con­ tinuing goal of increasing total compensation by at least 3% above the g rowth i n CPI. Turn i ng to Priority IV which relates to capital improvements, I note that 1 987/88 has been a successful year, and plans for the future are progressing satis­ factorily. At last, money is being set aside for the remodel i ng of Xavier, and annual rol l i ng resi­ dence hall remodel ing remains as plan ned with the com plete renovation of Foss Hall this sum­ mer. The Centennial campaign targets the construction of the new music building as its central capital objective and arch itectur­ al plans for a new busi ness/class­ room b u i lding have been pre­ pared. The final priority speaks of the u n i versity's com m itm ent to improve not only the Quality of its own life, but also that of i ndi­ viduals it serves and the commu­ nity i n which it exists. Although there are many exa mples, I l ift u p especially the efforts of the Family and Child ren's Center in our com munity. Beyond its lead­ ership in Parkland revita l i zation effo rts this year. the Center again merits ou r commendation. In 1 987/88, 1 346 local i ndividuals andlor fa m i l y u n its - nearly double the previous year's num­ ber - were served by PLU stu­ dents and staff through its pro­ grams. These service programs, all of which have a major edu­ cational element for o u r stu­ dents, span the broad scope of social needs, from counseling to health care to child care and education for young and old. As we begin the new year, we have opportun ity to begin con­ sideration of the statements that will guide PLU into its sec­ ond century of l ife. Clearly, given

our heritage, who we prese ntly are, and from what we claim to be of val u e to us, the confes­ sions and values of the historical c h u rch will rema i n dear to us. Clearly, also. as intensely com­ mitted and successful ed ucators we will work to provide those cou rses and skills which develop in students the understa nd i ng that: 1 . a person may not simply have an opinion, but earns such a right by the ability to explain and defend it; 2. if it can be explai ned and defended it may be exa m i ned against other rational claims to truth by virtue of thei r being similarly explai ned and defend­ ed;

3. from the process of exami­ nation and defense of com pet­ ing claims comes richness of l ife and continued personal growth; 4. finally, bec a u se not a l l human experience which i s val id is knowable t h rough rat ional processes, the elements and val­ ue of religious faith will always be req u i red to provide co m­ pleteness.

For 1 9 88/89 we cont i n u e to work toward new and better u ndersta nding of m i ssion, i nsti­ tution and self. We also will have the opport u nity to serve stu­ dents and community as never before. God bless and enable us as together we lau nch anew in these great ventures! •

As one member sa id m a ny years ago, the PLU Q Club is "a gathering of dedicated friends" who e njoy the sati sfact i o n of hel p i ng an excel lent u n iversity and deserving students. The Q C l u b was started i n 1 972 to tha nk friends and alum­ n i of Pacific Lutheran University who gave vita lly needed u n re­ stricted gifts to the u niversity's Annual Fund. These fu nds help keep PLU financia lly accessible to many students by p rov i d i ng much needed scholarships a n d financial a i d .

Cheney Foundation of Tacoma has p resented a 5 1 00,000 leadersh i p g ift to Pacific Lutheran U n iversity to h e l p fu nd the p l a nned PLU music building. The presentation m arked the third time that the Foundation has given major cap ital gifts to PLU i n recent years. Leadersh i p gifts were also presented to the c a m paigns that fu nded the Rieke Science Center, dedicated in 1 985, and the Carlisle Dietrich Add ition to M o rtvedt L i b ra ry (1 987). Elgin O l rogg, executive d i rec­ tor of the Fou ndation, made the p resentation to PLU President William Rieke.

Regent Hono..... Richard Sloan, a mem ber of the PLU Board of Regents from Newtown Squ a re, Pa., was the recent recipient of ARCO's "Out­ standing Tech nical Achievement Award." He has donated to PLU the 55,000 stipend that accom­ panied the award.

(4) To i nterest others a nd enl ist them i n sup port of the University. Since unrestricted gifts are i n many ways t h e most difficult to raise, the Q Club plays a vital role in supporting the annual budget of the University. In addition to scholarsh i p su pport, faculty sala­ ries and l i brary resou rces a re also enha nced through the gen­ erosity of Q Club members. Even students who pay "fu l l tuition" a re helped b y t h e gifts of Q Club members. Tuition and fees only cover a bout 80% of the true cost of education. Gifts a nd other non-tu ition sou rces must make up the d ifference. As a consequence, Q Club gifts help u nderwrite the cost of educat­ i ng each student with a n "invisi­ ble scholarsh ip" of over 5600. Because of that sup port, PLU can remai n open to all deservi ng students - over 70% of whom both need and receive financial aid each year. There are currently over 1 ,650 Q C l u b m e m b e rs w h o a re responding to the cha l le ng e of keeping PLU affordable. Last year thei r g ifts tota led over 5790,000.

Confro n t i n g The I m porta nt Q u est i o n s Excerpts from a greeting delivered at Opening Con vocation, Sept. 6, 1988

By Bishop David wold Chairman Board Of Regents

T h i s is an espec i a l l y e lect rify­ ing year. This is a political yea r a nd the a i r is full of speeches and vice-versa. There is so m u c h g o i n g by u s , ve rba l l y, t h a t a l m o st a l l l a n g u a g e becomes trivialized, or tends to be i n ou r consciousness of it. But i t's sti l l an exci t i n g t i m e , because t h i s i s a place where we use l a n g u a g e in a p rofo u n d sense; where we use it to co m­ m u n icate, to l i sten, to a rgue, to try to learn d eeper thi ngs. You've chosen a good school and you've co m e at an exciti ng time. This is a grand p l ace fo r you to be. That also c o u l d be trivia because peo ple talk a l l t h e t i m e about t h e academic excel­ lence of Pacific Luthera n Univer­ sity . Of course, that's true. We could refer to the k i nd of a m b i ­ ence o f the ca m p u s a n d t h e warm t h a n d hospital ity of t h e facu l ty and staff. A l l o f that would be true. But it is mostly true beca use this is a place of learn ing. This is a place where the ques­ tions that ought to be discussed a l l over the world a re focused u pon with d i rect i ntensity. T h e i m portant q u estions. Can w e learn t o l ive together in d i g n ity, h a rmony a n d freedom? Can we develop i nto a society that can

celebrate a n d util ize the gifts of a l l people so that we may p raise the Creator with our works and o u r leisure a n d our a rts and our com m u n ity? Can we be what God created us to be so that we can cal l forth the best that each has to offer? T h e n , of cou rse, there is the most esse ntial ques­ tion: what is the maxi m u m n u m ­ ber o f electrical a p p l i a nces that can be t u rn ed on in a n y one d o rm room befo re the fi re department comes? This is after all, a place where you are in vited to love God with a l l your m i nd as well as with you r heart. A pl ace set aside for d i a logue and for discussion and a rg u m entation and d i sc i p l ined thoug ht, a n d for fa l l i n g i n love. This is a place to fal l in love, but not as one of my fri ends who had a long and illustrious career h e re. During one of his several years i n the ju nior class, he d i s­ covered that the library was not only one of t h e soci a l h u bs of t h e ca m p us, but it had books. Su bseq uently he checked one out and d iscovered that this was a place to fa ll in love with l e a rn­ i n g as well , not as a d i lettante dabbling i n arcane wisdom, but as those enth ralled and e n rap­ tu red by new depths of truth. This is a place to fa l l in l ove with the worl d, for a u n i versity, and especially this u n i ve rsity, w i l l not a l l ow you t o be isol ated from the rest of the planet with

a l l of its needs and its d reams and its riches. And, t h i s is a p lace to fal l i n love with service, with a l l of the risks and JOYs and freedom inherent in that. I b e l i eve that t h i s is so, beca use this is the pl ace that b o l d l y p ro c l a i m s t h at in the m i dst of a l l of this sea rch of learning and discovery, the great love of God m eets s here. It meets us in the p rocl a m ation of the Word that finds its mean i n g in Jesus Christ. It is a great love that meets us before we h ave even discovered it. It is a l ove that does not e l i m inate struggle a nd contest, but sends us and leads us and accom pan ies us i nto the m idst of all struggle for the sake of the world. This is not a place to hide from t h e world, a l t h o u g h it h a s a splendid k i n d of isolation that has its own pu rpose. But i t is a p l a ce where we engage a l l the world, where we a re e m b raced by a love that e m b races the wo rld. This i s a ca ptivat i n g p lace. A pl ace that has its own mean­ i n g and pu rpose. I hope that you will discover a l l of the treasures that PLU has to offer, for this is a gifted place and a gifted co m m u n ity to which you c o m e . C o m e to rece ive, but a lso come to share. It's an exciting time to be here! It's good for all of us to share it together. God bless you r yea r.

J u st A Step Away From a meditation at the L u ther Institute at Boppard, Germany, July 1 0- 1 7, 1988

By Harvey Neufeld Vice-President hurch Relations

here is something very u pl ift­ i n g about t h e Vi sion a ry, a bout the con t em p lative, about the extrao rd in a ry experience . J u st for a moment we a re d rawn from the usual to h e u n u s u a l , and a r e placed just a step away f om an event or an idea that ushers us in to the very p resence f t h e oly. It is not u n l ike a mystical u nion With Ch rist, with Ctl risti ans of an ot her day an d era, with the i nner l i ves of the great sa i nts. A few weeks ago my wife and I j o u r n eyed from Ayre on the west Scottish coast to Glasgow. The road was ma rked by Roman milestones. We were ju st a step away from a ntiquity. I n St. A n d rews, a t S a l vator Cath edral C h a p e l , the i n itials "PH" a re clearly visible in the 1 6th centu ry cobbled street. They stood for one Pat H a m i l­ t o n , a 2 3 -yea r-o l d Scott i s h

Luthera n burned at the stake in 1 5 37 for he resy. H e beca me a martyr to h is faith It was just a step away from holy sacred me mories. T e mystery of he cost of the call to follow Jesus ha unted me for days. For whi l e w e saw Jesus i n the cobbled, cl Oiste red streets, or hea rd Him i n the ell-toned voic­ es of choir boys, or felt H i m in the l i fe of a g reat Scotti s h preacher, 0 devout Danish theo­ logian , or i n t h e fel lowsh i p of tou rists. La te r , we stu d ied at the Lutheran Theological Institute in Bopard on the R h i ne R i ve r in Germa ny. A block away was the old Carmel ite Ch urch. Here we were just a step away from the Ch ristianity of the 4th, 5th, and 6th centu ri es. Even the ' baptis­ m a l fo nt of t h a t period was there for all to see. In our study h a l l , we were "con­ nected with the old S a i nt, Ber­ nard of Clairvaux. One of h is d is­ c i ples began t h e 800-year-old cloister, the ru i ns of w h i c h formed the fou ndation stones of t h e hotel where we stayed. J ust a step away - a step from

A n d i f the bowling al ley next to the study hall was u iet, and we l isten ed with i te nse i m a g i na t i o n , we could hear e sou nds of the cl ois ered life, th e m orning bells, the eve n i n g com p l i ne, the sol­ emn chanti ng of a ncient offices. Just a step away from it all. I n Jerusa l e m , a y e a r a g o , I walk�d wher Jesus w Iked. The a uthe n t i c ' l ot h ostrotos" (t h e floor courtyard o f Anton io's pal­ ace) cou ld be seen through pro­ tective steel ba rs. It was all j ust a step away. In a mystical way I could feel Jesus' presence. It is a great t h i n g to be just a step away. It con nects us to h is­ t o ry . The fa m i l y of man becomes our fa m ily. It forces us to understand ou r p l ace, o u r ro le i n t h e events o f t h i s a nd other ti mes. What has been lea rned when we were j ust a step away from the extraord i n a ry w i l l be taken and used when we aga i n step back i nto ord i na ry life. Then we w i l l see the everyday Jesus. There is much comfort in that.

Osca r Ti n g e l stad o ca r T i ngel stad, the sixt h p resident of Pacific Lutheran U n iversity, was born i n North Dakota, but grew up in Si lverton, Ore. He thought of himself as a Westerner and bel ieved that the Pacific Coast reg ion was soon going to play a dom i nant role in the nation's h istory. He wanted the Lutheran Church to i nflu­ ence that role and PLU was the logical sou rce for much of the necessary education and leader­ ship. He had high hopes for the b u rgeo n i n g college when he came as president in 1 928. Tingelstad was the first a l u m­ nus to serve as president of PLU. He completed the commercial course i n 1 900 and the Luther College preparatory course, with its Greek, Latin, and Norweg ian emphasis, in 1 902 . He remai ned a l ife-long advocate of classical education (most of his love let­ ters to h is wife were written i n Latin) . H e brought PLU's enthusi­ asm for basket b a l l with h i m when h e tra nsferred to Luther and basketball soon rivaled base­ ball on that campus. T i ngelstad gradu ated from Luther College and Luther Semi­ nary and joined the Luther Col­ lege faculty in 1 909. H e qu ickly developed a reputation as an outstanding teacher and scholar. He was appoi nted registrar in 1 91 4 and was a candidate for the Luther College presidency in 1 922. H e a lso p u rsued g ra d u ate study at the University of Chica­ go, receiving an M .A. degree in 1 91 3 and a Ph.D. degree in 1 925. H e was one of only a few Luther­ an college preSidents with a n e arned doctorate i n t h e first half of the twentieth century. By August 1 928 OScar Tingel­ stad was in Parkland ready to move carefu l ly and resolutely i nto the future. He knew there were wonderfu l opportu nities (l nd serious probl·e ms. In h is sometimes wordy fash iol) he wrote: "There are mountains of i l)ertia to move, sloughs of despondency to drain, and fogs of misconception to d issipatp. " Tingelstad set to work. He carefully organized long-range academic, building and develop­ ment plans. The development plan run by the newly·appointed "field·men" required finding 1 0,000 members for the "Devel· .

OScar Tingelstad

opment Association" who would g ive "at least a dollar at least once a year." With a budget of $40,000, those gifts, along with tuition and endowment income and the C h u rch subsidy, cou ld create fi nanc i a l health. That would be a first. There was stir· ring and excitement. The future looked bright. Never had the institution been so organized and professional in its approach to problems. Four·year status seemed just around the corner. In the fall of 1 929 the Great Depression hit a nd the coillege had to revert to restricted rations for the next dozen years One desperate fund·raising cam· paign after another was under·' mined, and the faculty had to get along with severely reduced salaries that often were not paid anyway. Tingelstad called the school "a child of sacrifice" and that was perhaps an understate­ ment, but nobody gave up. The faculty and students remarned loyal and the institution's strong sense of community served as a shield . against the unending problems. In 1 935 Tingelstad wrote to the alumni that, in spite of the enormity of the problems it had been a good year and "never before have we had a finer sPirit at the college." ·


In spite of adverse p roblems the college grew in both qual ity a nd quantity d u ring the thirties. There were 1 87 stud e nts in 1 928 and 551 in 1 941 . A l ibrary was b u i lt in 1 937, accred itation was ach ieved the next year and fou r-year status came in 1 940 after 50 yea rs of i nstitutional h istory. Ath letic su ccesses b r o u g ht national p u b l icity. By 1 940 the faculty had grown to t h i rty; five had Ph.D. degrees and nearly all of the rest had M .A. deg rees. The strong science program that wou ld emerge in the post-war period was already rooted with Anders Ramstad, Harold Leraas, and Olaf Jordahl on the faculty. President Oscar T i ngelstad , Dean P h i l i p H auge, t h e faculty and staff have to be given h igh marks for their successes - and survival - i n the thirt ies. P LC not only su rvived the Depression without cutting faculty or reduc­ ing programs as church officials advised, but actually grew i n both quality and quantity. The costs - broken health, con­ strained l i ves, retrog rade faci l i ­ ties - were high, but all seemed convinced that the ca u se was more important than the costs. By 1 941 the problems of the Depression seemed to have been met and PLU was entering its second 50 years with growing confidence and effectiveness. All that was changed by the out­ break of war on Dec. 7, 1 94 1 . Enrollment fell by half and cred­ it was soon t h reatened; the timetable of institutional history conti nued to be clogged with unpredictable and destructive problems. The next PLC president would have to deal with those prob· lems when he bu rst on t he scene like an elemental force in 1 94 3 . His name was Seth Clar­ ence Eastvold. He was so busy and so determined to run things himself - that he could not find time to meet or consult even once with Tingelstad. It was the dawn of a new era. .

After spend ing 21 years on the India mission field, Dorothy returned to the U n ited States in 1 97 1 . Fol l ow i ng in Dorot hy's foot­ steps at PLU were two sisters, a brother, and two nieces. At pre­ sent two cousins from Spokane attend the Un iversity. Dorot hy h a s a l ways been a faithful sup porter of PLU. For 1 3 yea rs ( 1 974-87) she served on the U n i versity's Board of Regents. In 1 9 75 Dorothy married Rev. Fred Sch naible. Fred had had a da u g hter, E l len, who att e nded PLU, so h e shared Dorothy's con­ cern for the U n i ve rs ity. After Fred's reti rement. he a nd Doro­ thy settled in Moscow, Id., while Fred also served as i nte rim pas­ tor at Farm i n gton, Wash . , for seve n yea rs.

T h i s p ro p e rty was a n i n vest­ m ent, somet h i n g t h a t t h ey cou l d u s e to a u g m ent t h e i r ret i re ment i ncome. One of their thoug hts was that someday t h i s p roperty cou l d a l so b e u sed i n some type of deferred g ift for PLU. After F red d i e d , Dorot h y decided that she wou l d rat her not manage the du plex. " I want­ ed to travel, write, a n d beg i n new p rojects, rath e r t h a n be

t i e d d o w n by t h e da y-to-day tasks of oversee ing such a prop­ erty." It was at t h i s point that she decided to move a head with her deferred g ift to PLU . T h i s s u m m e r Dorothy gave PLU the duplex in return for a charitable g ift a n n u ity. " I a m i nterested i n see i n g t h a t stu­ dents can afford to attend Pacif­ ic Lutheran U n i versity a n d t h is g ift w i l l p rovide sch o l a rs h i p fu nds that w i l l make this possi­ ble. I want students to have the same opportunity at a su perior education that I had, an oppor­ tun ity wh ich i nflu enced my l ife to such a g reat extent ." By establ ish i ng such a c h arita­ ble g ift annu ity Dorothy assu red herself of a gua ranteed i ncome for l ife. Not only w i l l s h e be receiving payments for her l ife­ time, she also received an i m me­ d i ate c h a r i t a b l e co ntri b ut i o n deduction . A fu rther benefit was the avoid a n ce of a port i o n of t h e c a p i t a l g a i ns t h a t h a d accrued o n t h e prope rty. Pe rhaps the best result is that Dorothy will be providing for an eventual gift to Pacific Lutheran U n i ve rs ity, thus fu lfi l l i n g the d ream that she an Fred had con­ ceived years ago.

Lutes Defeat Loggers In Season opener By Mike Larson Two key personnel vaca ncies needed to be add ressed by PLU football coach Frosty Westering and his coach ing staff as the Lutes opened defense of their NAIA Division I I national title agai nst Puget Sound on Sept. 1 5; fi nding replacements for QB Jeff Yarnell, PLU's most prolific pass­ er ever; and LB Keith Krassin, a two-ti me league defensive M V P and 1 987 All-American. J u n io r Craig K u p p a nd a swarming Lute defense convinc­ ingly laid to rest both Questions in a 30-7 pad d l i ng of Pu get Sound before a Tacoma Dome crowd of 9,322. A 93-yard rush­ ing performa nce by FB E r i k Krebs a n d a dandy special teams performance a ided the Lute win. "You hope you do well i n at least two of the three phases of the game, offense, defense and special teams," said Weste ring. "When you get all three working, like we did, it's like holding a full house in a poker g a m e . O u r defense was in control a nd even though we only batted a bout 280 on offense, we got some lutch h its. We hit about . 500 i n o u r kicking game," he sa id. Kupp's passing n u mbers 12 for 25, 1 36 yards, a touchdown, and no i nterceptions - were mod­ est, but his size (6-4, 2 1 5) and scra m b l i ng a b i l ity a d d ed a d i mension of versati l ity t h at kept the Loggers i n fits a l l night long. "Craig is like a diamond taking form right n ow. He sti l l needs some seasoni ng, but he's so hun­ gry to grow and learn," said Westering. After a scoreless fi rst Quarter, PLU tal l ied on a l l three of its second Q u a rter possessi ons. Kupp fou nd TE M ike Welk on a 1 3-yard aerial with 9:48 to play in the first half to put PLU on top 7-0. PK E ri c Cultum dril led field goals of 43 a nd 47 yards to put the Lu kes a head 1 3-7 at intermission. The second h a lf was a l l PLU's, thanks in part to a momentum­ swi ng i ng performance by the Lutes' special teams. Back-up QB Paul Finley hit end Dan Wiersma for 24 yards on a fake field goal attempt, setting up a 7-yard Jared Sen n TD run a round right end with 1 0:40 to play in the t h i rd Q u a rter. DB B ret MacRae's i nterception set up C u ltum's t h i rd FG of the game, a 3 2-yarder, to m a ke t 2 3-7 . Cu ltu m then fell on hiS own on-side kickoff a nd PLU scored eight plays later on a 1 2yard run by Krebs to m a ke it 30-7 . U PS ran 1 2 p l ays for minus-1 6 yards in the third Quar­ ter.

Peak to Peak Experiences

Lute Gridders Begin Defense Of National NAIA C�ampionship here's noth i n g u p h i s sleeve and no m i rrors a re involved. In fact, insiders to the Lute football program w i l l tell you that there i s noth i ng magica l about coach F rosty Westering's formula for success. There is MAGIC, though. MAGIC, Westeri ng's acronym for M a ke A G reater Individual Commitment, last year translat­ ed into PLU's second NAIA Div. II national title of the 1 980s a nd an 1 1 -1 -1 record . The post-sea­ son appeara nce was the Lutes' seventh in nine years. Westering, the w i n n i ngest active NAIA Div. " coach in the country with 1 7 1 career wi ns, will defend the NAIA crown with 1 5 returning starters and 39 let­ termen. " R e p ea t i n g (as national champs) i s s o hard," said Wester­ ing. "We were a big u nknown last year, but got on a roll after the U PS game and ended u p playing o u r best when w e need­ ed to play our best," he said. 'That happened because we had some people assume some lead­ ership roles - they were our trump cards. Right now we have a lot of good cards to play with, but we don't know what the trump is. "With our philosophy, we see it as a peak to peak experience where we j ust enjoy the chal­ lenge of the climb. We've been on the top before. What does


that mean? Just that we need to be prepa red and ready to play to our potent i a l . Other teams try to beat us. We just try to be us," he sa id. Eight retu rnees a re offensive incumbents, incl uding senior RBs Erik Krebs and Tom Napier. That pair combined for 1 ,450 rush i ng ya rds l a st season a n d s h o u l d handle most o f t h e ground duty in 1 988. Jared Senn should also see significant time in the back­ field. J u nior QB Craig Kupp is the heir apparent to replace now­ g ra d uated Jeff Yarnell, who th rew for 6,454 yards a nd 85 TDs d u ring h is three years as a starter. Kupp, red-shirt frosh Eric Kurle, and soph Pau l Finley will all contend for the signal-calling duties. TEs M i ke Wel k and Mark Miller both ret u rn after i m p ressi ve seasons i n 1 987. Welk caught a school-record 62 passes for 797 yards and 1 3 TDs last season as a freshman. M i ller, a senior. snared 40 passes for 542 yards and six T05. Four of five i nterior l inemen retu rn from last year's front l i nes. Standout j u nior OG Jon Edmonds, sophomore OT John Skibiel and John Heller, and soph­ omore C Tom Bom a r a re a l l young a nd fast a nd possess great blocking skills. Second Team All-American DE Jon Kral, a sen i or, l ea d s the defense, which ret u rn s seven

starters. Kra l sacked opposing Q u a rterbacks n i ne t i m es last year and is one of four retu rning players up front. Dan Wiersman, a part-time starter a season ago, will handle the other end slot. Senior DTs M i ke Tuiasosopo and Ken Byrne solid ify the m iddle. Guy Kovacs, B ruce Schm idt, Paul Mauel and Rusty Eklund a re the nucleus of a h a rd-hitting corps of l i nebackers, which w i l l be without A l l-America n a nd two-ti m e CFL Defensive M V P Keith Krassi n.

President's Message Typically the President's Message in the annual Report to Investors contains words of gratitude to the many who provided financial support to Pacific Lutheran University plus a report on significant _ accomplishments of the university dur- • ing the past year. Certainly I am most appreciative to the record number of persons and organizations who helped PLU during 1987/8 and there are many great achievements-some of which are noted in other sections of this reportthat I r.light well discuss_ This year, however, I address my com­ ments to a different theme, viz., what is it that merits the support of Pacific Lutheran University. I choose this approach because there are indications that nationwide a decline in public con­ fidence in higher education is beginning. While Americans generally continue to have a deep and abiding faith in our col­ leges and universities some disturbing questions are starting to be voiced with some frequency.

John Aakre

Specifically, in February of 1 988 the national sociological research firm of Yankelovich, Skelly, and White/Clancy, Shulman published findings document­ ing public concern about the following five areas in the nation's colleges and universities. 1. Quality of higher education 2. Price and cost of higher education 3. Opportunity and choice in higher education for all qualified citizens 4. Relationship of higher education to the workplace and economic development 5. Public understanding of the role and purposes of higher education Since these are concerns, since they apply differently to individual colleges and universities, and since you the investors in Pacific Lutheran University have chosen to support this university, it seems to me you are entitled to know how PLU stands with respect to these issues and whether the institution con­ tinues to merit your support. An exten­ sive answer would be both important and easy, but probably so lengthy as to _ ,., go unread. Let me, therefore, respond specifically but briefly.

3 1. Quality of higher education

5. Public understanding of the role and pur­

This rightfully is the primary concern of investors. Happily, there is extensive evidence that academic quality at PLU is progressively being enhanced. That increasing numbers of very well quali­ fied students seek admission each year, and that overwhelmingly they identify 3cademic quality as the reason for their choice provides strong witness to the quality of the PLU experience. Add to that the increasing national visibility of the university such as provided by U.S. News and World Report (October 26, 1987) and the number of Fulbright Scholars among PLU graduates and one can be assured indeed that quality exists and merits the investment made.

pose of h igher education It is important to prepare students for work and productive careers. At PLU, however, the emphasis is to educate the individual for life and then train him or her for a job. The difference between education and training is a critical one, and this difference is realized in the individual at PLU by a balanced experi­ ence among the liberal arts and profes­ sional and technical studies.

2. Price and cost of higher education Poorly understood by the general public is the difference between price and cost. The cost of educating an undergraduate student for one year is essentially the same at our great tax supported institu­ tions as it is at PLU. The price is different because independent schools such as PLU have no tax derived tuition subsidy to support the cost of education. What matters is that PLU remain financially accessible to all qualified students and this is where the support of investors becomes so important. 3. Opportunity and choice in higher education for all qualified citizens Beyond recognizing that PLU remains financially accessible because of the teamwork of students, parents, friends, investors, university and governmental financial aid programs is the important fact that opportunities and choices are manifold at PLU. Programs to assist and retain students who need help, to recruit and train the underprepared for success in college, and to prepare all students for fulfilling successful careers abound because of investor support at PLU. 4. Relationship of higher education to the workplace and economic development Again beyond the massive multimillion dollar economic impact of the university through its budgetary spending are the facts documented by repeated surveys of alumni that PLU graduates are employed, satisfied with their occupa­ tions and making major contributions to society. Moreover if it ever became necessary the overwhelming majority would repeat their education at PLU.

I extend enthusiastic gratitude to each 1987/8 investor. Does Pacific Lutheran University merit your continued sup­ port ? I believe its activities in relation­ ship to the five issues discussed above not only provide an affirmative answer but make clear that such support is for the public good. Sincerely,

LJ �


William O. Rieke, M.D. President

CWothing ever built Arose to touch the skies Unless someone dreamed that it should Some individual believed that it could And some person willed that it must)) Charles I(cttering This booklet is largely a listing of names - names of persons who willed that many important things must happen at Pacific Lutheran University. Because of these generous people many students were enabled to attend PLU through scholarship awards, faculty and staff salaries were enhanced, special programs were made possible and building and grounds were improved. The individuals who are named in this Report to Investors, also churches, corpora­ tions and foundations, contributed more money to PLU than the University has ever received in any fiscal year, in fact 23.5% more than last year. This fiscal year, closing May 31, 1988, found many records broken at PLU, not the least of which was a gift contribution of $4,323,899.86. In addition to this gift fig­ ure PLU received grants and contracts totaling $347,724.

Because many individuals dreamed, believed and willed that important things should happen at PLU this year, they did! We celebrate the fact that: ·

The Annual Fund Gifts to the University's Annual Fund provide vital support to every area of the institution. Scholarships, faculty salaries, library resources, and facilities maintenance represent some of the more significant areas where Annual Fund gifts are put to use. This support provides the "margin of excellence" that helps set Pacific Lutheran University apart. Taken together with other income sources, Annual Fund gifts subsidize the cost of education by approximately $600 a year for each student who attends the University. The positive impact of Annual Fund support is felt by students in three key areas:

Scholarships Gifts to the Annual Fund provide scholarships to help attract and retain top notch students. Seven out of ten PLU students both need and receive financial assistance.

Outstanding Faculty A strong Annual Fund helps assure that faculty salaries remain competi­ tive. PLU has been fortunate to attract and retain highly qualified faculty who are dedicated to teaching.

Library Resources Nearly $600,000 was spent last year to keep the Mortvedt Library collection abreast of growing curriculum and research demands. Annual Fund gifts play a key role here as well. As a consequence of strong Annual Fund support, the University is able to strengthen its academic programs, en­ hance scholarships and financial aid, and operate with a balanced budget.

The PLU Q Club The Q Club was started in 1 972 to thank friends and alumni of Pacific Lutheran University who gave vitally needed unrestricted gifts to the Univer­ sity's Annual Fund. These gifts help secure PLU's commitment to Quality education. The "Q" stands for quality. Q Club gifts • help underwrite the cost of education for each student • provide scholarships and financial aid to needy students • allow the University to maintain a balanced budget without sacrificing quality.

While many of the gifts to the Annual Fund are small, as the number of those gifts increase, the participation of many alumni and friends makes a positive impression on other potential supporters of the University.

To help accomplish these goals, members commit themselves to a specific amount of support each year. There are four primary giving levels:

But small gifts alone cannot do the job. The University has encouraged a tradi­ tion of substantial giving through a special donor organization k nown as the PLU Q Club. Donors qualify for member­ ship when their unrestricted and/or scholarship gifts to the Annual Fund reach $240 or more per year.

Member $240/year Associate Fellow $480/year Fellow $l,OOO/year Senior Fellow $2,400/year

$20/month $40/month $84/month $200/ month

13 NOTE: Alumni and friends age 26 and

under may join the Q Club as Junior Members for $120/year or $10/month.

The Q Club began with 1 00 members who contributed $51,000 in 1 972. Today, there are over 1600 members who gave over $790,000 to the University during the past fiscal year.

The following pages list the names of alumn� friends, businesses, foundations and churches who have supported the Annual Fund at Pacific Lutheran Univer­ sity during the past fiscal year, June 1, 1 987 through May 31, 1 988.

C� �jic Lutheran University has affected my life in a very pro­ found way. I had a chance to question the things I was raised to believe, and wound up reaffirming those belkft from the perspective of a new­ found intellectual maturity. At PLU there is a diversity, a caring and warm environment, a revitalized commit­ ment to Christianity and excelJmt aauJemic standards. )) Erik Ogard, Ponland, Oregon Class of 1988

Churches As a University of the Church, Pacific Lutheran University is owned by the 630 churches of Region I of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (congrega­ tions in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon 'nd Washington). Many of those congre-gations, out of particular commitment to their mission in higher education, choose to support the University program directly each year. These gifts come to the University in a variety of ways. Unrestricted gifts and scholarship support for the University's Annual Fund are recognized through congregational membership in the various levels of the PLU Q Club. This money helps undergird the annual mission of the University by subsidizing each student's education and assisting in general operations. Many congregations elect to give for the benefit of particular students. Gifts o the Pacific Lutheran University Match­ - mg Scholarships program (PLUMS) generate matching contributions for

young people from contributing congre­ gations. Funds for the support of Lutheran students from the developing African country of Namibia are directed towards the Namibian Student Scholar­ ship Fund.

Annual support from the business community and from foundations comes to the UniverSity in a variety of ways. Unrestricted gifts and scholarship support for the University's Annual Fund are recognized through member足 ship in the various levels of the PLU Q Club. This money undergirds current operations and helps subsidize the cost of education for each student. Gifts, restricted for specific purposes, are also received from many corporate, and foundation sources. These gifts are often targeted to enhance particular areas of the University which are closely related to the priorities of the donor. Corporate and foundation support plays a vital role in meeting the capital and endowment objectives of the Univer足 sity as well. These gifts help fund capital construction projects, provide for the purchase of significant capital equip足 ment needs, and add to the University'S

Alumni Annual Fund Honor Roll ofDonors by Class Annual Fund gifts from Pacific Luther­ an University alumni undergird and enhance the quality of the educational programs which the University offers. These contributions help with every­ thing from scholarships to faculty salaries and library books to athletics. This past fiscal year 2,642 PLU alumni (about 16.1 %) made gifts to the Univer­ sity's Annual Fund. These contributions, which make up the Alumni Annual Fund, are recognized in this special Honor Roll of Donors. The number or percentage of alumni who regularly give to the University is important because it is considered by many major donors and foundations as a key "barometer" of support from those who know us best. In this case, the total dollar amount contributed is not as important as the fact that a large number of alumni make some kind of gift each year. One of the goals of the PLU Alumni Association is to steadily increase the number of alumni who give to the Annual Fund. We would like to reach a participation rate of at least 20% by the University's centennial in 1990/91 . Although the number of alumni con­ tributors is an important factor in influ­ encing others, clearly the dollar total

Members of the Heritage Society are those individuals who have included Pacific Lutheran University in some type of deferred gift-bequest, charitable trust, revocable trust, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, pooled income fund agreement, or a gift of a residence or farm with a retained life estate. Membership is not based on the amount of the deferred gift.The sole criterion is the remembrance of Pacific Lutheran University in one's estate

The purposes of the Heritage Society are: • To show gratitude and recognition to

those who have expressed concern for PLU by providing for a deferred gift.

• To assist members of the Society in

their on-going estate planning.

• To encourage others to become

members of the Society. The following roster lists Heritage Society Members of record as of July 1988.

Capital and Endowment Gifts Gifts to Pacific Lutheran University's capital and endowment programs help fund new construction, major campus renovation projects, and provide endow­ ment monies for scholarships and general operations.

PacIfic Lutheran University Scene December 1988


ROUD Restores P ide PLU Active In Efforts To Brighten Community Image By Jim Peterson


he community surrounding Pacific Lutheran University has been typical of many small towns in the West. It was founded a century ago with high expectations. The first settlers were so impressed with its beauty that they called it Parkland. They built an elementary school in 1888. Pacific Lutheran University, founded in 1890, began offering classes in 1894. Park­ land Light and Water, now the oldest mutual co-op in the nation, was founded in 1914. The historic Mountain Highway, which carried visitors to Mount Rainier, and a street car line brought an abun­ dance of visitors and potential residents. But the steps necessary to become a bona fide town were never taken. The Parkland business district, on Garfield Street outside PLU's front door, thrived at the turn of the century, but prosperity was elusive as more businesses chose to locate along the more heavily t raveled mountain arterial. Nevertheless, Parkland was, and is, a community in which many residents take pride. Thousands of past and present resi­ dents have passed through, and revere, the halls of P a rkland S chool, now PLU's Family and Children's Center. Many more have attended P LU, or have belonged to historic Trinity Lutheran Church. Still, many decades have passed without a strong focal point toward which commu­ nity allegiance could be directed. Today PROUD ( Parkland Revitalization Opportunities through Urban Develop­ ment) is filling that void. Now three years old, it is a grass roots community effort involving residents who are convinced that Parkland has potential as a civic and com­ mercial center. Affiliated with the Park­ land-Spanaway Council of the Tacoma­ Pierce County Chamber of Commerce, it also includes representatives from service clubs, businesses and schools, including PLU, and has the enthusiastic backing of the PLU administration. Faye Anderson, director of the Family and Children's Center, has been active in PROUD from the beginning and served as its chair this past year. Esther Ellickson, a 1958 PLU alumnus and Parkland resident. was instrumental in the founding of PROUD and is the chair for the coming year.

Faye Anderson

·" PROUD spent the first year (1986) laying groundwork, " said Anderson. " Early con­ cerns were housing, aesthetic environ­ ment, community spirit and economic development. The group determined early that having an impact on housing was probably beyond our immediate capabili­ ty. " Anderson wrote the grant that provided funds from the Pierce County Department of Economic Development to prepare an econom ic development plan. During the second year, PLU business students, under the guidance of Prof. Stan Sl ater, surveyed Parkland businesses. Another student group under the direc­ tion of psychology professor Chris Hans­ vick, surveyed PLU students. Results of the surveys, coupled with a residential survey and public input. provided the basis for a P a rkland Renewal Plan, a blueprint for the future of Parkland. In addition, the community was kept informed through a series of newsletters, and local architects prepared drawings of

how Garfield Street could look. In terms of development, Garfield Street is the initial target a rea, said Anderson. "Not only is it the historic civic and com­ mercial center of Parkland, It has the greatest potential to serve the function in the future," she added. Professional planners have pointed out that targeted renewal areas, like Garfield, become corne rstones for wider improve­ ments and attract private development. This past year saw the completion of the development plan, a Parkland Festival. and a community clean-up day. PROUD is hopeful that initial develop­ ment p rojects can be completed during the coming year. An $18,800 grant from the Washington State Office of Communi­ ty Development supports that effort. A p art-time p roject coordinator has been hired, and PROUD now has office space on Garfield Street. "A lot has been accomplished, but we also have a long way to go," Anderson observed . •

Chamber Of Commerce Honors PLU As 1988 Business Of The Year Anderson Earns TOP Individual Honor Pacific Lutheran University received "Business of the Year " honors from the Tacoma- Pierce County Chamber of Com­ merce, Parkland-Spanaway Council, and the council's Community Service Award (Indi­ vidual) was presented to Faye Anderson, director of the PLU Family and Children's Center. The awards were given at the annual awards banquet Oct. 14. David Graybill, chamber president and CEO, said of P LU, "During the past year, the university has made great strides in reaching out and assisting local businesses and residents . . . PLU has been exceedingly generous with provision of personnel, underwriting for local activities, and lend-

ing expertise to the betterment of the community. " Anderson was honored for her work on ' the PROUD ( Parkland Revitalization and Opportunities through Urban Develop­ ment) committee. During her year as PROUD chair, the group produced the area's first Econom ic Development Plan, spearheaded Parkland Clean-up Day, orga­ nized the first Parkland Festival, secured substantial public financing for project activities, increased publ ic ity and publ i c awareness, and established a PROUD office on Garfield Street. Martin Neeb, executive director of uni­ versity communications at PLU, is the new Parkland-Spanaway Council chairperson.

Heritage project Adds Dimension TO parkland Civic Revitalization Parkland Heritage display, East Campus


evelopment of co m m u nity spi rit and pride was an initial goal of PROUD, the Parkla n d revitalization gro u p . It became apparent early that one way to accom p l ish that goal would be to exploit the consider­ able interest i n the comm un ity's heritage. A se ries of c o m m u n i ty meet i ngs revealed the i m port of Parkland School and PLU to the com mun ity. The focus was broadened as new data and photographs were co ntributed from the collections of long-time residents. The project became a tea m effort. Faye Anderson and Marge Larson of the Family and Ch ild ren's Center were project direc­ tor and coord i nator respectively. History professor Art Martinson, a com m u n ity his­ tory expert, became principal advisor. Others involved included anthropology professor La u ra Klein, h u m a n ities dean Janet Rasmussen, and students Mary Sue Gee of Tacoma, Jenn ifer Blecha of Olympia and Charles Le Warne of Edmonds. Other participants incl uded David Nican-

Fu nded by a $9,200 g rant from the Washi ngton Comm ission for the H u m ani­ ties, the project has resulted i n a large permanent historical photo display in the PLU Fam ily and Children's Center (formerly Pa rkla nd School>, and two PROUD newslet­ ters hi ghlighting Parkland h istory. The photographs were gathered from several public and private collections. The newsletters were distri buted to 2,500 area households. "The key pu rpose beh ind the project was to add a h u man ities d imension to the com­ mu nity revitali zation effort." said Ander­ son. It was also i ntended to help focus devel­ opment efforts based on an a uthentic view of Parkla nd rather than one based on a romantic view of the past, she indicated.

"The project gives residents the oppor­ tunity to reflect on their heritage, com m u­ nity values and ideas about what consti­ tutes civic progress," she added. A historical "walking tou r" brochure of Parkland and a slide-tape history were among the project acco mplishments.

Scandi navian Cu ltural Center Con str uction Fu lfi l ls A Dream Mounds o f dirt nea r the east entrance of the University Center signaled the begin­ ning of construction of the Scandi navian Cultural Center at PLU. Work on the 6,700-square foot facility will continue through the spring, with dedi­ cation ceremonies scheduled for May. The plan ned dedication has been desig­ nated as a Washington State Centenn ial event. "Sca n d i n avia n heritage is an i m portant part of the history of both PLU and Wash­ ington state," said Ray Tobiason, chair of the Scandin avian cult u ral Council. The Cou ncil is a volunteer organization which has worked wi h the PLU Develo pment Office toward the cultu ral cen er goal Its members represent Danish, Finn ish, Nor· wegian and Swedish i nterests The enter wil l Include a ('n cert/lecture hall, exhibition space, kll .en, and cr;lft meeting and reading rooms.

PLU Joins State In Centennial Celebration

he PLU display featured a variety of community outreach and campus-spon­ sored state Centennial projects. They included the Parkland Heritage Pro­ ject, s �onsored by PROUD and PLU; the Fort Nlsqually archaeological project, and the Scandinavian Cultural Center, now under construction at PLU. All are noted elsewhere in this story.

If We sell You Our Land Holy Trinity Lutheran Church on Mercer Island has invited the PLU Univel-sity Cho­ rale to perform "If We Sell You Our Land" an original composition by PLU music pr ­ fessor Gregory Youtz. The composition sets to music the text of the speech Chief Sealth delivered before he signed the trea­ ty deeding the land that is now Seattle to the white settlers. The Feb. 12 concert is Holy Trinity's Centennial gift to the com­ munity.

n archaeological dig, radio vignettes, a music video, original art and exhib­ its are among the ways that Pacific Lutheran University is joining in this year's Washington State Centennial celebration.



Fort NisQually The first project was last s u mmer's archaeological excavation of the original Fort Nisqually site near D u Pont, Wash., south of Tacoma. Directed by anthropolo­ gy professor Judith Rasson, the dig was intended to aid Tacoma's Metropolitan Park District in an effort to rebu ild accu­ rately the Fort Nisqually replica at Point Defiance Park (Scene, Oct. '88).

Art: Women in washington In celebration of Women's History Week and the Washington State Centennial, the University Gallery at PLU will present "Women in Washington - The First Centu­ ry, " in March 1989. The exhibition will feature work by wom­ en artists on the theme of women in the first century of Washington's statehood. Artists and entries are currently being selected. For informat ton about entries, . contact PLU art department chair and gal­ lery director Richard Brown (206) 535-7573.

"Louie, Louie" Video "Louie, louie," the unofficial Washington state song, is now a music video. Produced by PLU Television, the video is a PLU gift to Washington for its Centennial celebration. An original arrangement was written by PLU composer-in-residence Gregory Youtz and sung by the PLU Choir of the West. When the video opens, the classically trained choir is rehearsing a serious arrangement of the song. A prankster calls choir director Richard Sparks away to the phone. While he is gone, the choir starts jamming a rock version; when he returns, th� group rl:� . . es the dignified arrange­ ment. The choir thinks it really pulled one over on Sparks ulltil the ending when .... More information is available from Kirk Isakson, PLU Television, (206) 535-7260.

SCandinavian Cultural Center Dedica­ tion

Dedication of the PLU Scandinavian Cutural Center, scheduled for May, has been deSignated a Washington State Cen­ tennial event.

"Scandinavian heritage is an important part of the h istory of both PLU and Wash­ ington state," said Ray Tobiason, chair of the Scandinavian cultural Council. (See sto­ ry page 3 ,)

Centennial Bell Carden - seattle A Centennial bell garden at the new con­ vention center in Seattle is among the statewide Washington Centennial projects. Bells represent ing the 39 counties of Washington state will be hung from gan­ tries in the garden. Many of the bells are old locomotive, ship or school bells. Eight are non-ringing bells; one is made of glass The bell representing Pierce County (Tacoma) is new. It has been created by Tom Torrens, artist-in-residence at PLU. The copper-plated steel bell is about 18 inches in diameter and 24 inches high. Attached to the top are found objects representing the major industries in the county When the commemorative display is completed, the bells Will be rung electroni­ cally. A video monitor inside the Center will provide information on each of the bells. Funding for the Pierce County bell was shared by PLU and the county Centennial commission.

centennial SCholars Professors from 22 colleges and universi­ ties across the state volunteered to partic­ ipate in a Centennial program called Wash­ ington Centennial Scholars. PLU was one of two independent institu­ t ions participating in the project. Sociology professor John Schiller and psychology professor Chris Hansvick were selected for the program. The Scholars are available at no charge to speak to community, service, historical, cultural and other organizations. Each is an expert on an aspect of Washington h isto­ ry, law, pOlitics, peoples, culture, environ­ ment, business or economy. A brochure listing the scholars has been distributed to organizat ions throughout the state. (The PLU Office of Public Infor­ mation has a small supply of brochures available: (206) 535-7430,)

centennial KickOff Celebration PLU was represented at a Pierce County Centennial K ickoff Celebration hosted by Pierce College in Tacoma Nov. 11.

A large permanent photo display depict­ . Ing Parkland history is now located in the PLU Family and Children's Center (formerly Parkland SchooD. The display is one of the projects funded by a grant from the Wash­ ington Commission for the Hu manities. (See story page 3.)

History With A Twist More than 40 radio stations serving Washington state will air "Washington: You Are There." The 52 two-minute dramatic vignettes feature a modern reporter sent back in time to cover significant stories that shaped the territory prior to state­ hood. A brainchild of KPLU-FM r-eporter Anne Martin, the series is funded in part by a grant from the Washington State Centen­ nial Commission. PLU donated its audio ser­ vices facilities (including its 16-track digital recording equipment and sound effects library), promotion expertise and voice tal­ ent. Resources at the Washington State His­ torical Society and PLU's N isqually Plains Room were used extensively to maintain historical accuracy.

Linus Pauling

Nobel aureate Shares vener ble it, Wisdom With PLU Students Linus Pauling. ..

By Jim Peterson


n any given century there emerges a handful of persons - scientists, theolo­ gians, philosophers, pOliticians - who rise to a rarefied level of distinction and esteem. One such person is Dr. Linus Pauling, the only individual to win unshared obel Priz­ es in two different fields. The venerable, if controversial. scientist, most commonly recognized for his Vitamin C advocacy, visited PLU Dec. 2-3 for the Linus Pauling Awards Symposium, spon­ sored by the Northwest sections of the American Chemical Society. Among other appearances, he led an informal discussion with students the first afternoon. For some of them, it could have been a lifetime exper ience, an inspiring experi­ ence, the li kes of sitting raptly at the feet of any of history's great sages. The data he shared may be forgotten, but remem­ bered will be the experience of being in the presence of a historical personality whose thoughts soar to exalted heights and whose intellect has not diminished dis­ cernably even as he approaches his 89th year. One could marvel at the mathematical discipline of his mind. Responding to ques­ tions, he would veer tangentially once, or several times, before returning to a pre­ cise conclusion. Some might hear rambling, but it was much more p urposeful and structured than that. It was a pleasure simply to experience an intellect devoted to the personal credo that "any educated person should be able to speak extemporaneously for 10 minutes on any subject." He was as comfortable on topics of war and peace or the environment as he was on the nature of hemoglobin. Asked of which of his Novel Prizes he

. .. chats with PLU students

was most proud, he noted that his chemis­ try prize for work on the nature of protein molecules involved a project he enjoyed: "I was having a wonderful time discovering more about the wonders of nature. " But he has endured personal attacks for his activities on behalf of a nuclear test ban t eatv prior to it ratification in 1962. The Nobel Peace Prize the same year for those activities is the one he treasures most. And his peace passion has not dimin­ ished. "It's just immoral - governments foster­ ing wars leading to deaths of thousands, millions of people," he said. "Of what use is it to develop weapons which, if used, would mean the extinction of the human race?" Asked about his future plans, he spoke of present and future projects like a per­ son half his age. He still oversees research at the institute which bears his name in Palo Alto, Calif., and says he's not ready to retire. *

* *

A second Nobel laureate, Sir Derek Bar­ ton, was one of the featured speakers at the symposi um. The 1988 Linus Pauling Award winner was Dr. Keith Ingold of the National Research Council of Canada. He is the author of some 350 scientific publications, mainly in the field of free radical chemis­ try. The'symposium is an annual Northwest ACS event. The region includes P uget Sound, Oregon and Portland sections. PLU chemistry professor Dr. Sheri Tonn was the event coordinator .•

Nobel Laureates Sir Derek Barton and Linus Pauling.

PLU A Sponsor Of Lutheran College Peace PLU is one of the Lutheran college spon­ sors of the Peace Prize Forum, scheduled for Feb. 17-18 in cooperation with the Nor­ wegian Nobel Institute.

C ntury

Of PLU-Alaska Ties

The saga began nearly a cent­ ury ago when two Scand in avian pioneers found themselves lured to the wilds of the Al aska Yukon at the time of the fabled gold rush. The first to a rrive was Rev. Bj ug Ha rstad , the Norwegian founder of Pacific Luthera n Uni­ versity. In 1 898 he hoped the Lord would p rovide gold fortune to shore up the finances of his fle d g l i n g i n st i t u t i o n. He retu rned home wit h l ittle to show for his efforts except a pair of massive moose horns. A diffe rent destiny awaited Swedish-born Edward Rasm uson. He and his wife Jenny served as Covenant missio na ries in the northland for a decade after the turn of the century. During that time son Elmer and dau ghter Evangeline were born. Edwa rd later studied law at Harvard University but retu rned to Alaska, where he became attorney fo r the new Bank of Alaska . He later rose to the bank p residency, a position he held until 1 943. He d ied in 1 949. H is son and daughter became leaders in the territory a n d pri me movers i n the new state of Alaska. Elmer followed in his father's footsteps to the p reSi­ dency and later chairmanship of the board of the National Bank of Alaska. He has se rved as Anchorage mayor, chaired the Un iversity of Alaska boa rd of regents, and was a candidate for the U.S. Senate. Evangeline and h e r h usband Robert Atwood became owners of the Anchorage Times, where he se rves as publisher. Before her death in 1 987, she was a p rominent writer, histo ria n, adventurer and civic leader.

Although Anch orage is nearly 1 ,500 m iles away, PLU has p layed a contin u i ng role in the lives of Alaska ns. In 1 9 76, the Atwoods visited the ca mpus with Alaskan poet Odd Medboe, whose poem was set to music by the PLU Department of Music and per­ formed during the visit to PLU of King Olav V of N o rway. Atwood was Alaska's Norwegian consu l at the time. In 1982 Rasm uson was one of th ree Alaskan reci pients of the PLU President's M edal, p resent­ ed to persons who "have dem­ onst rated strengths in vocation, excellence in p rofeSSion al or tech nical services, a n d who exemplify Christian values." On Nov. 9, Rasmuson rekind led the relationship with PLU, host­ ing a reception for PLU Presi­ dent Dr. William Rieke in the Her­ itage Library and Museu m of his bank. More than 70 promi nent alumni and friends of the univer­ sity were invited to hear Rieke d iscuss plan s fo r the futu re of the un iversity and its upcom ing 1 990 centennial celebration. A regional centen ni al commit­ tee of eight was established to help Elmer and Mary Lou ise Ras­ muson host t his event and included fellow President's Med­ al reCipients, Rev. John Maakes­ tad and M a rgaret Lowe. Others on the com m ittee i n clude Jan Flodin, Jim Joh nson, Dr. Kerry Kennedy, Bohne Martensen, Dr. Edward Todd and Rev. Ronald Martinson. Lowe said at the conclusion of the event, "This will be talked about for a long time." More than 300 PLU alu m ni live in Alaska and some 70 students from Alaska a re cu rrently study­ ing at PLU.

Problems related to lack of integrity and honesty in business might be solved by a return to

An Abso ute Standard By paul stolz

he general consensus is that t here has been a rash of ethical problems in the busi ness world in recent ti mes. Even though there have always been prob­ lems of an ethical natu re, it seems clear that more p roblems of integrity and hon­ esty have surfaced than ever before. There is a strong and g rowing consensus that something needs to be done about it. In hundreds of pages of materials that I reviewed, here are some of the su ggested solutions: 1 . Some say every business school should have mandatory courses on ethics. 2. Others say that corpo rat ions sho uld do a better job of developing and docu­ menting a code of et hics. Then their exec­ utives and employees cou ld use this writ­ ten set of ru les as a guide for conduct. 3. Still others say that a code of ethics is not enough, and that corporat ions should have tra i n i n g prog rams wh ich i nterp ret and emphasize the content of their code of ethics to a l l their employees. 4. Then there are those who say what is needed is better policing of the ru les. They suggest an 800 n u m ber for informers to use so that they can report on thei r fellow employees when there are infractions of the rules. These are just a few of the ideas pre­ sented . All of these ideas, as well as most of the many others presented, have a cert a i n amount o f valid ity. There i s noth ing wrong with the ideas; I just t h i nk they miss the basic cause of the problem. In my opinion two elements are neces­ sa ry: Fi rst, there must be the acceptance of an absol ute standard, completely out of the i n d i v i d u al's control a n d a b i lity to manipulate. And, second, there must be the sou rce of strength to live u p to that standard. In my case, the fi rst came from my being brought up in a Ch rist i a n home where the Bi ble was taught and accepted . Church was a major part of o u r fam ily life and a l l the train ing that went with it. By the time I was ten, I could quote a h u ndred or more sc ri pture verses and I knew the standards of conduct taught by my par­ ents and our ch urch. I knew they were based on the Bi ble, which I accepted as being from God. Though I certa in ly did not


always l i ve up to them, I had accepted them as being the standa rd. If the mora l and ethical standard by 'which we l ive is the product of our own i ntel l igence and mental processes, we will always be able to use the same processes to rational ize and justify changes. Then the sta ndard is really no standard at a l l. When I was about eleven years old, I had an experie ce wh ich gave me access to the strength to l ive up to these standa rds. We had a young cou ple as house guests and the man, whom I g reatly respected, explained to me how I could have a person­ al relationship with Jesus Christ. A sim ple prayer of co mm itment on my part opened a whole new world of experience to me. I knew all the facts the day before, but this experience made Jesus Christ a living reali­ ty in my life. It was my "born again" Ch ris­ t i a n experience. It is very difficult to

explain, but the reality of that experience was overwhelm ing and has stayed with me through the 48 years si nce then. This sou rce of strength is im portant because even when we know what is right, there will come a time when the tempta­ tion to violate the rule will be so great that we cannot in o u r own strength cope with it. I have watChed several busin essmen over the last 40 years who were basically ho nest people get them selves i nto spots where the temptation was too great. They knew what they did was wrong. At least at times they wanted to do the right thing, but they did not have the strength to resist the temptat ion. Here are the ru les that are im portant to me: 1 . We should strive fo r a standard of absolute honesty. 2. We shou ld recog nize that possessions have no lasting value. Use them, but never worsh i p them . Never com p rom ise any aspect of ho nesty or take advantage of another pe rson's weak ness to obta in them. 3. My defi nition of an eth ical busi ness transaction: A tran saction that benefits both parties with full d isclosure of all rele­ vant facts. 4. We should accept as an absolute fact that every human being is equally im por­ tant. All a re created in God's image. When our paths cross with someone who has a need, it is our job to meet that need if it is in our power to do so . • Excerpts from the keynote address delivered at this fall's Ethics Forum, sponsored by the PLU School of Business A dministration.

Dr. J. Robert Wills, dean of the College of Fine Arts at the University of Texas-Austin, will be the new provost at Pacific Lutheran University. Wills, who succeeds Dr. Richa rd Jung­ kuntz, wili assume his new post July 17. Jungkuntz retired last May after an 18year tenure; David Yagow, former deputy provost, is provost pro tem this academic year. At Texas, Wills also serves as professor of drama and is holder of the Effie Marie Cain Regents Chair in Fine Arts. In accepting the position, Wills expressed his commitment to high quality under­ graduate education. He added that "the church-related, Christian institutioe makes possible the richest kind of educational adventure because it adds the dimension of faith to the context of learning. " Announcing the appointment President William Rieke said, "It is a tribute to all members of the university that a leader of this national and international stature has been recruited." Wills has extensive experience in both independent and public institutions. An honors graduate at the College of Wooster in Ohio, he earned his master's degree at the University of Illinois and a doctorate in dramatic art, with honors, from Case-West­ ern Reserve University. He holds a certifi­ cate in arts administration with commen­ dation for excellence from Harvard University. His career includes continuous teaching and research beginning with Wittenberg University from 1963-72, where he

received an outstanding teaching com­ mendation in 1970. At University of Ken­ tucky-Lexington from 1972-81, he served first as chairman and director of graduate studies in the department of theatre arts and later as dean of the college of arts. Wills is an officer on the board of Inter­ national Council of Fine Arts Deans OC­ FADl. He is the author of 10 produced plays and has directed 90 plays. He has published widely and received numerous professional and leadership honors. He has held his current position since 1981.

David Olson TO Be Inducted Into NAIA Hall Of Fame PLU athletic director Dr. David Olson has been awarded the NAIA's highest honor, induction into the NAIA Hall of Fame in the category of Meritorious Service. Past president of the NAIA (1985), Olson has been a major factor in the growth of Lute athletics since his arrival at PLU in 1968 and is a highly regarded spokesman for amateur sports. "Induction into the Hall of Fame is the Association's highest honor," said NAIA executive director Jefferson Farris. "It is a tribute to Dr. Olson, who exemplifies the highest ideals of intercollegiate athletics. He has fine moral character and his athlet­ ic program is immensely successful." Olson's list of awards and accomplish­ ments is impressive. He was one of four U.S. educators invited to the International Olympic Academy in Olympia, Greece in 1984. He recently completed a nine-year commitment with the NAIA executive committee and will represent the NAIA at the World University Games in Sofia, Bul­ garia, in March, 1989. He was also recently appointed president of the United states Collegiate Sports Council.

Residence Hall Director Posts popular With Graduate Students Persons interested in earning a master's degree at PLU as well as finding the finan­ cial means to make it possible might con­ sider applying for a campus residence hall director position. Residence hall directors receive free graduate tuition, room, board and a monthly stipend. In return, they live with and are responsible for the welfare of 90 to 250 students. The Residential Life Office staff believes that providing a free education for their hall directors is worth the expense. "Stu­ dents can relate to students," said Resi­ dential Life Director Lauralee Hagen. "Because the directors are also students, they can see the residents' perspective." At the same time, there is an element of maturity and serious-minded ness that

adds the appropriate degree of authority and responsibility, she indicated. Residence hall directors gain a great deal of managerial experience, serving as a liai­ son between administration and students, with RLO staffers and among the students. They have or quickly learn skills in adminis­ tration, counseling and programming. Par­ ticularly important are people skills: approachability, sensitivity, enthusiasm and judgment. "It isn't a job for everyone," cautioned Hagen. "It's a full-time job, combined with graduate studies. But for the right people, it is good management experience, and is very rewarding." Applications will be available from the Residential Life Office after Feb. 6, 1989. Deadline for applications is March 17. For information call (206) 535-7200. Lucille Giroux

Athletic Excitement In t h e m i dst of t h e Great Depression wh i l e Oscar Ti ngel­ stad was president, Pacific Lutheran Col l ege prod uced one of the m ost exciting cha pters in the history of Pacific Northwest athlet i cs. People in Tacoma, a l l al ong t h e Pacific Coast a n d even New York City lea rned where Parkland was and that the " Mar­ velous Ma rvs" and "the Aerial Circus" were something special. PLC beca m e widely known for the fi rst t i m e in the institution's hi story . The fact that t h e a c h i ev e m e n t s co u l d have em erged o u t of t h e 500-st u­ dent. depression-ravaged i nstitu­ tion with a cracker-box gym, a rock-covered practice field, i nad­ equate equ i p m ent and no ath­ letic scholarshi ps, seems all the more remarkable in retrospect. The orchestrator of the tri­ u m phs was Cl iffo rd O. Olson, a 1 92 7 g rad uate of Luther Col­ lege. He was a four-year letter­ man in foot b a l l , basketball and track, and one of Luther's great­ est footba l l players. He was one of seven Olsons o n the 1 926 tea m . He coached foot b a l l at Spokane College i n 1 928 and p rod u c ed a w i n n i ng team de pite d ismal prospects a n d cam e t o PLC In 1 91 9 after Spo­ kane Col lege closed. Pres ident Ti ngelsta d had a good eye for abil ity. Olson's first successes - b u i lt on a long tradition of ath letic enthusiasm - were in basketba l l where PLC won six junior col l ege league championships i n the ear­ ly and m id-thi rti es. Gene J a c k and Harold Ni lsen were the out­ st a n d i n g p l a yers on t h ose teams. The 1 9 38-41 basketba l l teams, playing only fou r-year schools by that time, were equal­ ly outst a n d i ng with 20-5, 20-7 and 1 9-6 seasons, a 1 940-41 WIN­ CO League cha m pionsh i p and a 40-30 defeat over the U n i versity of Washington. Sigurd S i g u rdson, a blond Ice­ lander from Ballard High School and one of the most gifted ath­ letes in PLU's h istory, was the league's lead i n g sco rer for two years. He and the fiercely com­ pet itive M a rv H a rs h m a n were regular all-conference selections. H a rshman later sa i d , "At that time, Sig Sigurdson was the best basket b a l l player I'd ever seen, including the guy from Stanford, Lu isett i . " Hank Lu isetti was the most famous college basketbal l player i n t h e country. It was footba l l , however, that captu red the p u blic's attention i n a u nique a nd powerfu l way a nd raised PLC to a new level of visibi lity. By the late th i rties peo­ ple were i nte rested i n pushi ng the grim years of the dep reSSion

Coach Clifford Olson behind them; the victories and razz le-dazzle of the footba l l team undou btedly helped. Even nat ional c h u rch offi cials, who were so concerned about PLU's financial deficits a nd so peeved at Tingel stad for his st u bborn refusa l to red uce programs a nd facu lty size, were excited by the at hletic news that ' came from Parkland. H i nts of what m ight happen were present earlier in the thir­ ties, but the teams playing from 1 939 and beyond were the ones that att racted national atten­ tion. They won th ree consecu­ tive WINCO championships. They prod uced an 1 8-game wi nning streak, a 2 3-2 record, a 24th­ place tie with Notre Dame, Clem­ son and Rice i n the Associated Press p o l l of major teams i n 1 940, and the institution's only undefeated season. The s i n g l e most exci t i n g g a m e i n P L U ' s football history was t h e last- m i n­ ute 1 6-1 3 victor.y ove r " b i g­ ti me" Gonzaga before 1 5,000 fans in Stad i u m Bowl in 1 940. How was it done? Much of the credit m ust go to Coach Olson. He had no athletic scholarshi ps, but he rec ru ited a cl uster of gifted ath letes. He was s i n g l e­ m i nded, ha rd-working, stretched pennies with g reat dete rmi na­ tion and was more i ma g i native as an offensive coach than his contemporaries. Agai nst a back­ d rop of conservative and often predictable footba l l (and an obvi­ ously dreary decade) his teams dazzled. It was the victories, but also the "Aerial Circus" with its soph isticated pass routes and deception that attracted atten­ tion. His teams passed twenty or thi rty times a game when most

tea ms ran a l m ost excl us ively. Olson sa id: "I su ppose I was pret­ ty rou g h on my boys. But we always had a well-condit ioned tea m; boys who l oved to play. We had a type of offense that was a lot of fu n , a wide-open, g a m b l i n g offense, with l ots of trick plays, passing, laterals." Marv "To m mygun" Tom mervik p rodu ced rem a rk a b l e passing stat istics and records, some of which st ill stand fifty years later, and he was twice named Little Al l-A m erica n. M a rv H a rsh m a n was for th ree years the leadi ng scorer on the Pacific Coast. twice a l l-conference, and a mem­ ber of the 1 941 New York Sun 's All-American tea m (com peti n g agai nst players from all colleges a nd universities in the country). Earl Platt and Sig Sigurdson, the pass-catchi ng ends, were a l l ·con­ ference selections and had Little Al l-American mention. All fou r played p rofess i o n a l footba l l after World W a r I I ; Sigu rdson was the fi rst Lute to play i n the National Football League. Sports writers from the enti re nation, but especially T acoma and Northwest. got i nto the act. George Varnell of The Seattle Times wrote that i n the 1 940 Gonzaga game "Laterals were as frequent as forwards and the ball was kept hot. Pass catchers took aerial heaves off their ears, they took passes one-handed, they j u g g l ed passes and then pu l led them i nto thei r arms . . . Hard-socking tackl i ng and block­ i n g ro u n d ed out the perfor­ ma nce to make it one of the real l y great games in Northwest h i story . " PLC won t h e 1 941 game with Gonzaga 26-1 3 before 2 3 ,000 fans. Royal Brougham of the Seattle P. I. wrote i n 1 941 that " M a rt i n L u t h e r o u g h t t o b e b u rst i ng with pride at the amazing feats . . . of the Lutes." And whi l e a l l P L U a l u m n i from 1 930 t o the end of 1 9 50 u n dou btedly rem e m ber Dr. Jesse Pfl u eger's advice that "co m pa risons are odious," it seems clea r that John McCa l l u m was correct when he wrote: "At no time has a small col l ege i n the Pacific Northwest produced m o re vita l , v i b rant football players than did the Gladiators of 1 9 39-40-41 . At no time i n this area's history has a small college grid team received more national publ icity." •

Whale Watchers I re member t h ree famous whales: Jona h's whale, Namu, and the unnamed, but mystical creatu re whose haunting, other­ wonldly "voice" on a po pular '60s reco rd i ng of "Amazing Grace" gave us a greater appreciation of the many mysterious forms of l ife in the world around us. To this list of memorable levia­ thans I can now add two more: the cou rageous p a i r that sur­ vived the recent Point Ba rrow odyssey. These two su rvivors of the g reat Arct ic ice jam have cap­ tu red the imagi nation of millions of people. Rightly so. Left wing conservat ionists and right wing bureau crats joi ned in the great I i beration effort. Native Alas­ kans, with their chain saws, and Russi an sa i lors, with their huge ice breaker, met at their own "sum mit" and ach ieved a un ique "breakth ro u g h , " at the to p of the world, that might certai nly be a model of cooperation, not

to mention sou rce of envy, for the leaders of thei r respective nations. It was grand, poetic, sensation­ al, d ram atic, i m p ressive, wild, wonderfu l and yes, even emo­ tional. It was a l so very expensive. About this there is sti l l strong opi nion. Was the rescue "cost­ effectiveT Are the whales each worth $1 m i l l ion on the open market? No, of cou rse not. But this was one of th ose events, where from the outset. cost was not a factor. Relationsh ips were everyt hing. Person to person. Person to animal. Person to cre­ ator. Animal to creator. Creature to universe. In the sense that we were try­ ing to create freedom for and preserve the lives of creatu res, were we u ndertaking a God-l i ke ventu re? Today, as a resu lt of these efforts, the wha les l i kely a re baski ng near the Baja Peninsu la. Native Alaskans a re back at work

with their Yamaha tobogga ns. The R u ssians h ave retu rned home. Government agencies a re fi l i ng repo rts in tripl icate. You and I fi ll ou r days with Ch ristmas thoughts. The adventu re is over. Now this one last thought. The whales a re im portant because of someth i ng I'll call symbol. They engendered inter­ national cooperation, at least a sy mbol of it. They brought peo­ ple toget her. Those of us in the C h ristian tradition cannot help but th ink of the ancient story of Jonah and the whale. Ou r Lord talks about his symbol. He speaks of it i n reference to H i s own death and resurrect ion.

By Harvey Neufeld Vice-president Church Relations

If we watch whales, will we be seeing and hearing holy things? Kind of blows you r mind, doesn't it? Thanks to the many hea rts who sti l l ral ly to the cry of God's creatures.

PLU 's ' Product' In my law practice, I often rep­ resent manufacturers - compa­ nies that make things. My clients call the things they make thei r "product." My clients make a hig h-qual ity product and define their co mpa­ ny's su ccess in part by their product's perfo rmance in the m a rke tpla ce. The company's good re putation based on one qual ity product often helps se ll other company p roducts. A suc­ cessfu l co mpany also supports its p roduct after the sa le. As a n educational institu tion, PLU a lso has a "p rod uct . " The product is not, however, some­ thing tangible l i ke a professor's book or journal article, or even PLU's champion athletic teams. Rather, PLU's "prod uct" is its alumni. While PLU did not "man­ ufacture" us, few can deny that PLU had an effect. often major,

A man ufacturer strives to produce a qual ity prod uct; PLU strives to adm it quality students and g rad­ uate q u a l ity citizens. T h e rising test scores of PLU freshmen and the i n creasing p romi ne nce of PLU a l u m n i are evidence t h at PLU's p u rsuit of q u a l ity is suc­ ceed ing. The sy mbiosis between a man­ ufact u rer and its prod u ct also a p p l i e s to t h e re l at i o n s h i p between PLU a n d its a l u m n i . A manufacturer i s su ccessful if its product sells well and has a good re p utation; PLU measu res its success in p a rt by its a l u m n i 's achieveme nts. Successf u l PLU a l u m n i are a testim ony to the qual ity of a PLU education . Si m i l a rly, PLU's g rowing repu­ tation as a q u a l i ty- i nsti tution benefits its alumni. Doors open

emph asize that c h i l d re n a re, in deed, ou r nation's most va lu­ able resou rce." For a few weeks prior to the primary, Judith kept a gruel ing sched u le, co mm uting between Washi ngton state and Wash i ng· ton, D.C. on "red·eye" fli g hts while finishing up her leg islative com m ittee responsi b i l ities. I n June, she returned to her home i n Puyallup where she lives with her hu sband, Do n, o n ly to resu me com mutes again, t h i s time t o her campaign offices i n Seattle. As her c a m p a i g n g a i ned . momentum, she often shared the podium with Heck. "I bel i eve Denny and I ra n a good clean campaign - we spoke to the issues and never resorted to pol itical m u d sli ng­ i ng," said J udith, who developed her p u b l i c spea k i n g skills as a deb ater at P L U . S h e later enha nced these skills by stu dy· ing at the Un iversity of New Mexico, where she rece ived her master's degree in com m u n ica­ tions.

Intimacy And Openness

Cance Nurse tells Why She Wouldn't Excerpts from an article in the Spring 1988 issue of Review maga­ zine, Virginia Mason Medical Center

ather ine " Kappy" ( P arrish '70) F l n stuen began her career as a cancer nurse in 1 970, following her graduation and a move to New Haven, Conn., with her husband, John 70. One of her first patients at Yale/New Haven Hospital was a young Yale freshman named Steve. Steve had just been diag· nosed with testicular cancer and had a 50-50 chance of recovery , H e was very sick a t t h e time, went t hrough a lot of treat­ ment. and at times wondered out loud to Finstuen if it was all worth it. Finstuen says t h e t h ree of them - she, her husband and Steve - were like a family back t hen. W hile Finstuen worked nig hts, John and Steve discov· ered a common love of baseball and became friends. Steve sur· vived his cancer and now lives in Olympia, Was h , The Finstuens live in Woodinville, Wash., near Seattle, where Kappy works at Virginia Mason Medical Center. Both families attend the open· ing game of the baseball season every year together. Through all the c h anges, they have remained good friends for . 1 8 years, Many oncology nurses could tell similar stories. They would say that that their long term relationships with some of their patients are the most rewarding part of their job. They have an opportunity to spend time with patients and become acquainted with their families and friends, because some cancer patients spend a lot of time in the hospi· tal and return often. "There is intimacy and open· ness w h i l e treating cancer patients, " says Finstuen." When you are dealing with someone

with cancer, you're facing the funda ment a l questions of huma n existence. There is no pretense, no games. , like bei � g involved with t hese people In the struggle to find out what it means to be human." During a sh ift on the oncology floor, nurses take time to sit and talk with patients, to explore their feelings about their cancer, treatment. life and death. '" had a patient, a woman about my age, who sent every· one else - the doctor and her family - out of the room and she made me shut the door," Finstuen recalls. "She sat me down' took my hand, and asked me if l thought she was going to die soon. Then she asked me if I thought there was a God and if He still wanted her, That's hard, to be there on the spot like that. There's no way you can lie or pretend you know something you don't. "Sometimes people pick out their nurse because they seem less threatening. They can sound off, they can get angry and it's safe, They can tell you to go away and it's okay. They can con· front what t hey think about their lives and we -can be there to support them in that. It's not always easy, but that is what , like about the work." . Finstuen says she knew what she wanted to do when she was 1 2 years old and has never thought about going into anoth· er profession. "Many of my friends and m y husband's friends struggle with what they want to do," she says. ''I've nev· er done that. I've just never wanted to do anything else." Her husband John is a pastor of Wooden Cross Luth eran Church in Woodinville . •

"To u n d e rstand how good she is, I s h o u l d point out t h at, as a rule , when she scored her th i rd goa l , she came out of the game.

Celebration I

n May of next year, Pacific Lutheran U n i­ versity w i l l beg i n a year-long Cente n n i a l observance i ntended not only a s a back­ ward look at a cen t u ry of service, but a look forward at the issues that w i l l drive the un iversity, and society, as the second m i l l e n n i u m approaches. A PLU Centennial com mi ttee, c h a i red by busi ness a d m i n istration p rofessor Thom S e p i c, has been wor k i n g d i l i g e n t l y fo r th ree years on ca mpus Cente n n i a l pla ns. "Our Centenn i a l is Qu ite l itera l ly a o n ce­ i n-a-l ifet i m e event," sai d Sep ic. "No one associated with PLU wants a nyone, or a ny· thing, left out. The nu mber of ideas for projects, observan ces a n d activities has been somewhat overwhe l m i ng." One reason for the activity i s the fact that the com mittee has so l ic ited ideas and plans from a l l campus u nits, students and major off-ca m p u s const i t u e n cies: a l u m n i , the church, Sca n d i navian g rou ps, busi ness and the local com m u n ity. The Centennial theme is "Educating for Service - Centu ry 11." In addition, to help focus and orga nize p l a n n i ng, the year's cal­ endar has been divided i nto fou r phases, each with a sub-theme reflect ing goa l s of the observance as wel l as the u n i versity. Each phase i s sponsored by cam p u s u n its or constituent groups. Phase I, "Reflecti ng on Heritage," beg i n s in May of next year and continues i nto the summer. A l u m n i and Sca n d i navian groups a re p l a n n i n g activities. "This phase emphasizes the celeb ratory aspect of the Centen n i a l ," S e p i c noted. "While some such activities w i l l conti n u e throughout t h e year, they w i l l gai n their im petu s, and e m p h asis, d u r i n g the ea rly weeks of the observance." " S h a p i n g Society'S V a l u es" is the su b· theme g u i d i ng activities in October and Novem ber.

What A re Today's Studen ts Like? Ho w Are They Similar To, Or Different From, Their Predecessors?

By Jim Peterson


l u m n i a n d others in PLU's extended fam i l y often exp ress a des i re for reas­ su rance that PLU is remai n i ng true to its historic m ission, and heritage. At the same t i me, they seek evidence that PLU is a m o n g the n a t i o n 's top aca­ dem ic schools. Not an easy task - meeting such high expectat ions. Yet the reassu rance, and the evidence, a re both pos i t ive and affi rma­ tive. M i n utes before he sat for a recent i nter­ view, E rv Severtson was signing five letters of recom men dat ion to g ra d u ate schools fo r a PLU stu dent. Th ose letters were add ressed to Colum bia, Georgetown, Ha r­ vard, D u ke and the U n iversity of V i rg i n i a . Severtson, a 1 955 P L U a l u m nus, former fu l l-time psych o l ogy p rofessor (he st i l l teaches), a n d p resent vice- p resident for student l ife, writes scores of such letters each year. And he rece ives letters in ret u rn. One recent one from the g raduate level J o h n F. Kennedy School o f Govern ment at Ha r­ vard read, "You sent us one of ou r m ost ou tsta n d i n g students. Can you find us a n other one?" These two i nc i dents offer evidence of institutional academic q u a l ity. Yet most of PLU's facu lty, students and govern ing offi­ cials seem u nwi l l i ng to define their u n iver­ sity that narrowly. " PLU pu rsues acad e m i c excel lence with

vigor," said Severtson. "That alone can be a sign ificant objective, a n d task . Some s c h o o l s a re u n d e rsta n d a b l y d o i n g j u st that, and only that. "We are tryi ng to do many things. We want to provide the best possi ble academ­ ic olimate; we a re also a n i nstitution of the c h u rch. As such, we believe it is necessary to extend the defi nition of qual ity to n u r­ turing of the spi rit and service to i ndividu­ a l s and society , " asserted the f o r m e r Luthera n pa rish pastor. I n fu rther confo r m a nce with its b road i nst itutional m iss i o n , PLU seeks not o n l y t h e very outstanding students, but a cer­ tain nu m ber of " h i g h risk" students, who, for one reason or another, seem to have u ntapped or u n recogn ized potenti a l . "We a re confident o u r faculty tutors and cou n­ selors ca n help these students be success­ fu l , " Severtson sa i d , " b u t somet i m es it 'takes blood' out of o u r people to do it." Even after nearly fou r decades of close association with PLU as a student, teacher and now a d m i nistrator, Severtson remains awed by the b ro a d l y ve rsa t i l e t a l e nt, potential and budding altru ism of the vast majority of PLU students. Why does PLU attract so m any high cali­ ber students? " M a ny stu dents come from o u r tradi­ tional constituencies, which historically a re service-oriented," he a nswered. "But there is also a lea rning that takes p lace here. We encou rage leadersh i p and se rv i ce activi-

ties. The opport u n it ies a re here because, for the size of our student body, we offer a l a rge n u m b e r of service-related p ro­ grams and organizati o ns. Also, students have good role m odels among the faculty and among their peers. An i nc l i nation toward service is a lso often a reflection of parents' val ues. Many of the parents of today's students were maturing du ring the idea l istic and activis­ tic '60s. However, while their pa rents were i nfluenced by efforts to i m pa ct b road social issues - wa r in Vietnam, civil rig hts, women's l i beration - today's st u dents have t h e same c o n ce r n s b u t a l so a re l i nking up with h u rting i n d ividuals. "Their b road concerns a re peace, justice and racism," noted Severtson, "but thei r activities a re a mong street people, u nem­ p l oyed black youth, poor, h o m e l ess a n d others w h o have been deprived, emotion­ a l ly and econom ica l ly . " On campus, a n d t h ro u g h inst i t u t i o n a l connections, students c a n m ake personal contact with persons d i rectly affected by the l a rger issues. F o u r stu dents from Namibia expose them to issues of racism. Students from two d ozen other n ations and opportunities for involvement in the Study Abroad Prog ra m help them develop a first-ha nd world view. The Family a nd C h i l d ren's Center a cq u aints them with needs in the local com m u n ity. U n d o u bted l y ,

tod ay's stud ents face pressu res l a rgely unknown to their predecessors. "For those of us who g radu ated . . . in t h e ' 50s," he reca l l ed with a wry, w r i n k l e·free s m i le, "there was virtually u n l i mited opportu nity for college g ra d uates. T h e re was m o re need than we could fi l l . " T h e expa n s i o n o f soc i a l prog ra ms a nd economic g rowth in the '60s and 70s a l so created attractive career opportu n ities for most g raduates. In the '80s there is j ustifi· able student concern about the economy and thei r eventual niche. Severtson adm it· ted that more g raduates tod ay a re experi· encing delays i n fi n d i ng appropriate career positions. Given that added stress and u ncerta i nty, it wo u l d be u n de rsta nd·a b l e if stu de nts retreated into thei r books and adopted a dog·eat-dog, me fi rst, menta l i ty . " But most don't," said the fo rme r c l i n i c a l psy c h o l o­ g i st "They ava i l themselves of co-curricu­ lar and service oppo rt u n it ies. Doing t h is, t h ey ga i n a l evel o f e x p e r i e n c e , s e l f­ confidence and specific ski l l s unava i l a b l e at most other schools. " C o n seq u e n t l y , " he added, " g iven today's real ities, they a re better prepared for life than most g rad uates. " Here they can find facu lty and a d m i n is­ tration mentors who w i l l work with them on an i ndividual basis. There a re support systems: campus m i n istry, the counsel i ng and health centers, lea r n i ng and advising center and residence h a l l staff . " S o m e campus pro b l e m s a re y e t to b e fully solved, b ut effort and progress a re being made. "There a re a l ways som e stu dents who l ive on the perip h e ry of ca mpus activity and don't get l i n ked up," said Severtson. "We have persons in the residence h a l l s trying t o reach t hose students. O u r i ntent is to give them encou ragement, without coercion." He ident ified that effort as one of t h e many ways PLU is see k i n g to i mprove the overa l l e d u ca t i o n a l experi­ ence as wel l as retention. I n fact, a l a rge percentage of u n i versity e n ro l l m e n t g rowth is reflective of i mproved retention. Severtson a l so noted t h a t each yea r there a re a few students with seri o u s problems - " b u t s o very few; maybe one­ fourth of one percent - 1 0 out of 4,000."

Despite Disabilities.. Religion Professor Da vid Knutson Is

A Ma n of Vision David Knutson

By Betsy Pierce


avid Knutson is m a n of visi o n . T h e range o f h i s s i g h t is w i d e , taking i n 20 years of teach i ng rel igion at Pacific Lutheran U n i versity. It also is focused, see­ ing the potent i a l i n a stude nt's idea or the beauty i n a piece of cast-off furniture. This is despite the fact that d ia betes has taken most of his sight as wel l as a leg and much of the strength from a good heart. The 5 1 -yea r-old professor i s not the sum of his d isab i l ities, but a m a n of vital ity who passes beyond them. "He has remarkable res i l ience," said fel­ low professo r Bob Stivers. " He shows wh at you can do with a lot of i n capacities. It's g iven h i m perso n a l i ns i g h t i nto a lot of problems." " His c l ass was my m ost e njoyable o ne t h i s term," s a i d stu d e n t G reg S c h utte. " People were queueing up to t a l k , a n d once i n a while he wou l d l e a n forward . . . l i ke he smelled someth ing in a student's opin­ ion that lacked any basis." Prof. Dou g l a s O a k m a n , a newcomer to PLU's rel i g i o n department. agrees that Knutson loves a debate. " Dave i s a man of depth percept ion. He's always c a r ry i n g a ro u n d an idea. We can strike up a s u bject and carry it for a long time." O a k m a n added that there's m o re to Kn utson than h is i n tel lect. " Dave and h i s wife M a ri lyn have made o u r fa m i ly's tran­ sit to Tacoma and PLU easier than it wou ld have bee n . They've been i nstru mental in helpi ng us find a place to l ive. " T h e Knutsons' empathy f o r fam i l ies o n t h e m o ve c o m es fi rst- h a n d : K n u ts o n ' s school i ng and se m i n a ry took h i m and h is wife from Taco m a - where they both attended PLU - to New York to M i n nesota

to C h i ca g o . The fa m i l y g rew to fo u r: d a u g h ter Ka ri a n d son Kristofer. It was while comm u t i ng to the sem i n a ry in Berke­ ley in 1 976 that he suffered h is first major hea rt attack. It forced h i m to abandon h i s work for a doctoral deg ree - right before the dissertation stage. Yet there was no bitterness in Knutson's voice as he told the story. He sat at h is oak kitchen t a b l e, one of m a ny beau tifu l ly restored pieces of "th row-away" furniture in his Parkland home. "Se lf-pity is energy-wasti n g and t i me­ consum i ng. It serves n o pu rpose. When I was diagnosed with d i a betes when I was 1 4 years old, I accepted it. And I accepted all of the compl ications as they came. I adm it. I've had most of t h e m . I was j ust at a n u rses' conference l ast week at Swe d i sh Hospital. It was o n d iabetes and its compli­ cations. I guess you cou l d say I was Exhibit A." Knutson then sha red a la ugh with M a ri­ lyn, who was pressing s h i rts nea rby.


e has always g iven the med ical profes­ sion a ru n for its money. When faced with the a mputation of h i s infected right leg in 1 978, Knutson i n s i sted o n being awake d u ring the su rgery. " It was my leg, after a l l , a n d I'd spent my l ife with it" he expla i ned. "They t ried to talk me out of it . but I wanted to be conscious." He ended up getting a spi nal b lock from the d u b i o u s a n esthes i o l og ist and getting h is way. "I was qu ite chatty," he reca l led. H i s pa le eyes seemed to look back to the event. " It may sound fu n ny, b u t the n i g ht before the s u rgery, I took the leg for one l a st walk, to say good bye to it." The experience of losing a l i m b is a k i n to the g rievi ng process one goes t h r o u g h w i t h the loss o f a loved o n e , Knutson said. H is i nsights helped him when he taught a class i n death and dying at PLU. The su rgery was o n a Wed nesday. By Satu rday, Knutson was c l i m b i ng sta irs i n h is physical-therapy session. "It was a psy­ ch ologica l advantage to be o n my feet," he said. "It beats moping." The prosthesis gave him another chance

to exercise h i s u nfa i l i ng sense of h u m o r when Apri l Foo l ' s Day ro l l ed a ro u n d . He wal ked nonchala ntly i n to his rel i g i o n cl ass - with his leg on backwards. Si nce the operation, Knutson h as always been up-front a bout the leg. He w i l l tel l a class at the beg i n n i ng of a term that If they see h i m l u rc h i n g , it's because he h as an a rtificial leg. "And I'm not ignoring you if I don't g reet you (on campus); it's only that I can't see you com i n g . " His vision beg a n to f a i l m a rked ly i n the early 1 970s. On a d rive to Portland, friends po i nted out M o u n t Adams. ' Look at the bea u t i f u l m o u n t a i n : t h ey t o l d me. I could n't see it." That New Year's Eve, Knut­ son suffered major hemorrhages in both eyes, beco m i ng lega lly b l i n d . And in the same five months, h e l ost h is leg and u nderwent double-bypass heart su rgery. If there was ever a time to rol l over and g ive up, it was then. He didn't. "When t h i s happened, ten years ago, when I was i l l , I read Holocaust l iteratu re. It may seem h a rd to u n de rsta n d , b u t that helped. If you t h i n k you're suffering, j u st look beyond you r own l ife and g a i n per­ spective. There h ave a lways been th ose who have suffered m o re than you . "There's a cli nic i n Boston that awards a medal for those who make it fifty years with d i a betes. I i ntend to m a ke it," he added. For now, Knutson teaches at PLU, sings tenor solos at c h u rches, plays exq u isite pia­ no and c l i m bs up on his roof to rip off old shingles. "Plu s," he adds, ''I'm a good man with the d ishes." M a ri lyn set d ow n her i ro n a n d sm i led. "But he sti l l doesn't do sh i rts!"

10 The World

A u nique Collection African Art Exhibit A Campus Attraction for 12 years

Banum Trib e - Camaroon Mende Tribe - Sierre Leone Basa Tribe - Liberia

Twelve years have passed since Dr. and Mrs. Hans Lehmann of Seattle donated a collection of ten original pieces of African art to PL U. Since that time the collection has been highly visible in Mortvedt Library. It was then, and remains th e only collection of African art available for public viewing in the North west. In 1983 the couple donated more pieces, nearly doubling the size of the collection. Th e Lehmanns became associated with PL U in 1967 wh en the Robert Joffre y Bal­ let of New York City selected PL U for its summer residency program. At that time Dr. Lehmann was president of the Pacific Northwest Ballet Association which helped sponsor the residencies. "We had a good look at PLU, " Mrs. Leh­ mann recalled. "We saw that when PLU decided to do something they only went for the best. " Objects in the collection are from Sierre Leone, Ivory Coast, Mali, Nigeria, Camer­ oon, Angola, Zaire and Liberia. Recently Mrs, Lehmann reflected on the couple 's experiences with African art and their association with PL U: By Thelma Lehmann


here seems to be a q u a l ity about Afri­ can a rt t hat attracts a l most everyone. Whether it's the di rectness of a fi gu re, the mood of a mask. the si m p l icity of the overpa inting. i t is a l ways u nselfconscious, One senses co mmon usage by tribal mem­ bers, by man kind, perhaps oneself. Un ique­ ly. in contrast to the a rt of the Western world. one does not t h i n k. wonder, or even care about the carver. And that is how it should be. The carver has taken h is c h u n k of wood fro m a sanctified tree. worked it accord ing to tradition - to be used to pac ify he spi rits - and if the piece is i m mediate or beautiful as wel l . that is because the carv­ er is gifted. What a t horou ghly engrossing affa i r has been o u r own collecting of t h ese African objects. To fi nd the subtlety, the beauty that speaks to us in each piece. to learn about what is " right" i n the traditional form of the tribe for wh ich i t is used. has been our search . How did we become inte rested in Afri­ can a rt? In 1 964 Hans had gone on a chari­ ta b l e m e d i ca l m i s s i o n i n G u i n ea a n d

bro u g h t h o m e t h ree African m asks. Can ' you imagine, for instance, a N i m ba mask, a figure as l a rge as Hans, sitting alo ngside h i m in t h e New York su bway? When h e final ly got t h e m home, I fell i n love with the objects as they came i n t h rough the door, I wanted more! For the next many years, acq u i ring more of these pieces sti m u lated o u r l ives, When­ ever, wherever we traveled, o u r first "bee l i ne" was to find African a rt, We learned what to look for . We questioned each ot h­ er. Wasn't t h i s newly fou nd object even more wo nderfu l t h a n the one from the same tribe that we a l ready h ad? Sha l l we keep one and sel l the other? So the idea of the Ni mba g a l lery was born. That. and the fact that i n Seattle in 1 966 there was not one place where one co u ld go to see Afri­ can art. Affici ana d os of African a r t made up a somewhat surprisingly small g roup of peo­ ple, most of whom knew each other. Dur-

ing o u r travels i n Eu rope, Africa and even New York, t h e h i g h l ig h ts were always to see pieces and to meet their owners. Our frie ndsh i ps beca m e strong a n d l ast in g, both with pieces and people. African art has beco me more pop u l a r than ever, true tribal pieces more rare and of cou rse more expensive. Although I've gone back to painting as I had always intended to do, and Hans has just fi nished writing a book about his life, we have not stop ped co l lect i n g Africa n art.

Dr. William Rieke

'We are gra teful for the relationships which affirm our ties to the church. '


t is a p l eas u re to s u b m it a report from Pacific Lutheran University to the members h i p of the six synods of Region I. With the me rg e r in 1 9 88, we have expanded the base of con grega­ tional owners h i p to 630 church­ es. We are g ratefu l for the re la­ tionships w h i c h affi rm o u r t i es to the chu rch . T h ro u g h s y n o d i c a l e l e c t i o n 1 2 5 delegates a re chosen on a p roport i o n ate rep res e n tative bas is to make up the PLU corpo­ rate vot i n g body. T h e p r i m a ry responsib i l ities of the d elegates at the annual corporation meet­ ing, held in conju nction with our Ope n i n g Con vocation, a re two­ fold: 1) election of the board of regents members; and 2) voting on reso lutions presented by the elected resol utions co m m ittee. D u ri n g the cou rse of the yea r, d e l egates se rve as l i a i s o n s between the u n i versity and con­ g re g a t i o n s . This kind of e x c h a n g e provi des a l i n k for m ut u a l service; the delegates a re a va l uable asset to the uni­ versity a n d t h e i r service i s appreciated. My report will be brief, but will cover sign ificant a reas. Enro l l­ ment con t i n u es to i n c rease stea d ily. The total student body (fu ll- and part-ti me) for the fa l l 1 988 num bered 4,1 03, reach i n g beyond 4,000 for t h e first t i m e i n our history. T h i s represents a 6.9% increase over 1 987's enro l l­ ment figure of 3,835. It is im por­ tant to re port that t h e reten­ tion rate i s a l so increasing, and that more and mo re students a re choosing to rem a i n at PLU

for their u nd e rgraduate e d u ca­ tion. The n u m ber of stu d ents claim ing Lutheran affi l iation has shown a modest u pt u rn of 2 % ove r t h e p revious y e a r . About 1 800 f u l l-ti m e stud e n ts I 've on the campus, with th e re m ai n d e r a growi n g b a s e of com m u te r students. One of the most ca refu l ly co n· side red issues each year i s the sett i n g of tuition n d room and board rates, yet with operationa a nd salary o b l i g ations, t here is not the option to rem a i n static. The administration and regents a re extre mely co n s c i e n t i o u s in m a i n t a i n i n g a ccess i bi l ity to a l l who want to come to PLU. The u n i versity co n t i n u es i ts strong f i n a n c i a l a i d p ro g ra m . N e a r l y 75% o f o u r students receive some sort of fi nancial assistance, with the average package being a bout S 7 , 3 9 5 , i n c l u d i n g g ra n ts, scholarsh ips, and loans. Many of you are fa m i l i a r with the PLUMS p rog ra m , w h i c h i s of specific ben efit to youth from the c h u rches. B riefly, t h e u n iversity matches a co ngregational schol­ a rs h i p d o l l a r-fo r-d o l l a r up to S 500 per student. Over the past year, the p rogra m has provided a com bin ed total of S 1 65,OOO in specia l a i d . The ave rage award has been S808 .00 per stud ent, with 204 students from cong re­ gations receiving PLUMS a i d . O u r g rateful thanks on b e h a l f o f t h e students go t o t h e 1 3 1 cong re­ gations who have i n c l u d ed the PLUMS a i d i n their budgets. Among our stu dent body a re fou r students from N a m i bi a sup­ ported by the sponsor i n g con­ gregations of the Reg ion.

C. Eastvold was born Dec. . 1 9 , 1 89 5 , one of ten c h i l ­ d ren born t o t h e Reverend and M rs. C . J , Eastv o l d . His fat h e r came to A m erica fro m N o rway when he was 1 6 a nd eventua l ly stu d i ed for the m i n istry at t h e Ha u g e S y n o d ' s Red W i n g Sem i ­ na ry. The H a u ge Synod one of t h e g ro u p i n g s of N o rweg i a n Lutherans i n t h e 1 9t h a n d early 20th centu ries - was lay-orient­ ed, strongly i nterested in evan­ gel i s m and m i ssi o n a ry act i v i ty, cong regat ional in its pol ity and relatively u n i nterested in l i t u rgy a nd fo rmal theological systems It was very p i et i s t i c a n e! some­ ti m es censorious of t h e i nabil ity of other Lutherans - and C h ris­ t i a ns - to measu re u p to t h e a pp ropriate eth ical m a rk. C. J. Eastvold served as a pas­ tor, p resident of a H a uge Synod col lege, p resident of the H a u g e Synod, and was a m e m b e r o f t h e C o m m ittee o n U n i o n p r i o r t o the No rwegia n Luth eran m erger in 1 9 1 7 . H e deeply infl u enced h i s son w h o later w rote: " W h e n I was a l ittle boy I h o ped t h a t I m i g h t h e l p ca rry o n t h e work you have so ably beg u n among us. That p rayer has been g rati­ fied i n my case." S. C. Eastvo l d a lso atte nded Hauge Synod educational i nstitu­ t i o n s a n d served in the U . S . A rmy (1 91 8-1 9) wh ere h e experi­ e n ced l o n e l i n ess and was shocked by the a m o u n t of i rrel i ­ g i o n h e fou nd . H e g ra d u ated from L u t h e r Sem i n a ry in 1 920. Eastv o l d served p a r i s h e s in North and South Dakota, M i n ne­ sota, and Wisco n s i n from 1 920 to 1 943, and qu ickly developed a reputation as an able parish pas­ tor, powerfu l p re a c h e r a nd determ i n ed leader. In h i s fi rst parish, Eastvold found that peo­ ple responded enthusiasti cally to B i b l e stu d i es centered a ro u nd themes taken from the Book of Reve l a t i o n . S u c h B i b l e stu d i es beca m e a stap l e of h i s pa rish m i n i st ry a n d esch a t o l og i ca l themes were soon elucidated i n his m id-western rad io m i n istry. Ea stvo l d was an o rt h odox Lutheran wit h i n the spect r u m of American Luthera nism, b u t h e carried some emphasis and ener­ gies from his Hauge Synod back­ g round that were dist i nctive and powe rfu l .

Seth Eastvold

doctri nal syst e m s were of no g reat i nt e rest to h i m , b ut p reach i ng, eva ngelism, "spiritual emphasis weeks," and eth ica l rig­ orism were. C h a racter - u nder­ stood p i etistica l l y - was basic to the work of both ch u rches and ed ucational i nsti t u t i o n s . I t was no accident t h at the sign t h at presided over the main entrance to the PLC ca mpus d u ring East­ void's p residency read " B u ild For C h a racter." Eastv o l d was a n im placable foe of jazz, dancing, consumption of alcoholic bever­ ages, and card playing. If force was need ed to acco m p l i s h t h e g o a l o f c h a racter b u i l d i n g , i t wou l d be used. The t h e m e of death - a nd w h at h a ppened to both s i n ner and saint after death - a lso exercised Eastvold a l l his l i fe and made i ts way i nto m ost of h is preaching and m u c h of his writ­ ing. "We a re d y i ng men in a dying world," PLC chapel attend­ ees heard over and over a g a i n . "The g lobe i s o n e g reat necropo­ lis. G raveyards mark the trail of h u ma n ity everywhere . The earth is h o l low with the caverns of the dead and its frail shell will soon b reak down into ete r n a l b u rn­ ing." The "ceaseless m ower" who whets his scythe and someti mes dips it in blood and sometimes in a pool of disease, was ready to receive sinners, but they had to come now; tomorrow might be too late and the fate of u nbe­ lievers was absolutely clear: "On every chain in h e l l is written FOREVER." Eastvold was also a pre-m i l len­ ni2l ist in his theology (the belief in a fut u re thousand-year reig n of blessed ness that will fo llow the second coming of C h rist). M ai n l i ne Ch ristian bodies h ave never completely rejected m i l­ lennialism, but they have t reat­ ed it wi:h g reat reserve. East­ void spelled out the dimensions of millennialism in loving d etail

in h is m i d-western p reach i n g and ra d i o ta l ks, b u t d ow n p l ayed those themes after h e came to PLC. H e knew m i l lenn ial ism was a potent i a l p ro b l e m w i t h i n rile main st rea m of the Norweg i a n Lutheran C h u rch (which h e wan t­ ed to serve as president) .

We a l l have them - those days when not m u c h g o es wrong, but not much goes right. A short time ago, I had such a day. Emotional wea r i ness began to have the u p per h a n d . And why not? My fat he r- i n-law has sym ptoms of a d e g e n e ra t i ng m u sc l e m a la dy. The n e ws reports det a i l the dest ruction of the Arm e n i a n q u a ke. I've over­ run (rea l ly b u l l d ozed) my office budget. On th is, the co ld est of all February morni ngs, my wife has bus d uty and is t ry i n g to cal m snow-crazed teenagers who a re ankle deep in d rifts, clad only in open tee-sh i rts and mU lti-col­ ored Reeboks. My cou ntenan ce betrays my dismay and my car­ ing secretary says to me, "You preach it - bel i eve it! Put it i n God's hands." You proba bly would sha re m y reluctance t o have a n i g h t out on such a day. B u t the home­ com i ng concert of the Choir of the West wou l d certa i n ly d ispel my mood. So a n i g ht out i t was; I wasn't d isa ppointed. Concerts i n Eastvold Aud itori­ u m p resent a c h a l l e n g e . T h e t ri ck i s t o sit where one ca n hear

I wasn't qu ite ready for the p rogra m ' s first major work Bach's "Jesu, M e i n e F re u n d e . " Life had d e m a n ded m o re care t h a n I cou l d g i ve - m o re strength than I coul d muster more alertness than I possessed . The opening stanza cha nged a l l that. I was l o o k i n g fo r the b i g sou nd, a k i n d of cross between the Swedish R a d i o Chorus and the Mormon Taberna cle c h o i r. But, what a change of pace - I heard sou nds l i ke the a n g e l ic O b e rk i rc h e n Ki n d e r C h o i r sweet, delicate, bel l-l ike. I had been i n Ansbach, Germa­ ny and persona lly witnessed t h e ext raordinary vigor o f the Swed­ ish R a d i o Chorus d i rector, who p ra ct i c a l ly d e ca p i t a t e d the sopranos i n t h e front row with his baton, bringing out the fu l l sou nd. B u t t h i s - this was so mellow. I poked my wife with m y elbow - a sign o f m y del ight.

She see med sta rtled, si nce I'm n ot given to d i sp lays of my affecti o n . My m i n d and mood were cha nging. The g reat m u s i c seeped i nto us. It was kind of a m usica l sau­ na. The m i n d drifted i n hypnotic del i g ht . Lost pe rspective crept q u ietly back i nto the psyche. For seven stanzas, wave after wave of chora le and variation swept over us.

Cha ritable G i fts Red uce Taxes

By Edgar Larson Director Of Planned Civlng

April 1 5! For some people this date st ri kes a note of fe a r a n dlor a n t i c i p a t i o n , kno w i n g that Uncle Sam is waiting for an accounting of this year's taxes. Finding legal ways to avoid taxes is a conti n u a l pu rsu i t of m a ny Americans. One of the a l lowa b l e ded u c­ tions for those who itemize the i r tax retu rns is t h e cha ritable con­ tribution deduct i o n . For exam­ ple, gifts to chu rch es, U n ited Way, and p l a ces l i k e Pacific Luthe ran U n iversity a l l fit i nto t h i s cate g o ry . In a d d i t i o n to knowing that one h a s helped t h e i r favorite cha rity, p roper d e d u c t i n g of such c h a r i t a b l e gifts c a n also have t h e effect of reducing the tax a n ind ividual is asked to pay. Certa i n types of l ife income gifts offer a two-fold advantage. For exa mple, i n a cha rita ble gift a n n u ity not only is there the

guarantee of lifetime income, but there is a sign ificant i m medi­ a te charitable contribution deduction. I n the case of a per­ son who is 75 years old, not only wou l d helshe receive a g u a ra n­ teed 8 . 5 % rate of ret u rn of i ncome (a portion of which is tax-free!), but that person would also receive a cha ritable contri­ bution d ed u ction amounting to over 50% of the face va l u e of


t h e g i ft. (That means that if a c h a rita b l e g i ft a n n u ity in the a m o u n t of 5 1 0,000 was estab­ l ished, the donor wou ld be a b l e to t a k e an i m med iate cha rita b l e contri bution deduction o f over 5 5 ,000!) As you a re fig u ring you r taxes for 1 98 9 , c o n s i d e r how you might, th rough a charitable gift

three times. As a high school junior, she participated in the German-American Part­ nership Program (GAPP). She selected PLU partly because of its German language curriculum and overseas study emphasis. In her junior year in col­ lege she studied German language and lit­ erature at the University of Freiburg, Ger­ many, under auspices of PLU's Study Abroad program. Last summer she was at the Institute of European studies headquarters in Paris studying French. During her Fulbright year, Boyd will be teaching English, American and British cUl­ ture, and Northwest Indian art at a Ger-

man high school. Germany has fascinated Boyd for a long time, as her family's ethnic heritage is Ger­ man. While at PLU she also worked for a year teaching elementary students at the Tacoma German Language School and par­ ticipated in German and French conversa­ tion clubs on campus. SHe graduated cum laude from PLU with a major in German, minor in French and teacher certification. Fulbright Scholarships cover all expenses for a year of study, including tuition, travel and living costs.

examine how those leanings affected their integrity as scholars." His PLU faculty mentors have included Holocaust expert Christopher Browning and Third Reich authority Robert Erickson in the Department of History. Browning, internationally recognized for his scholar­ ship, helped direct Lucky's earlier archival research in Germany. Erickson taught a provocative Interim 1989 course, "Theolo­ gians Under Hitler," which had a dramatic effect on Lucky's plans. The young scholar also thanked his history faculty advisor, Philip Nordquist, who assisted him fre­ quently and helped him with his Fulbright application.

Sophomore 15 PLU Rep At Peace Forum Jim Hestad, a sophomore from Belling­ ham, Wash., was PLU's student representa­ tive to a Peace Prize Forum, co-sponsored by six Lutheran colleges, including PLU, at St. Olaf College last February. Among the distinguished speakers were Nobel Laureate Norman Borlaug and for­ mer Vice-President of the United States Walter Mondale. Chairman of the Forum was The Rev. Dr. David Preus, bishop emeritus of the Ameri­ can Lutheran church and executive direc­ tor of the Global Missions Institute.

Following his Fulbright year, Lucky plans to attend graduate school and pursue a Ph.D. in history with an eye toward eventu­ ally teaching on a college campus. "I would really like to remain involved with a church college," he said. For his undergraduate education, Lucky said, "I wanted to be at a religious institu­ tion, where I felt goals are more clear, and there is a quality of life I couldn't receive at a secular institution." He chose PLU because both his parents attended there. They are Anne Lucky, a member of the PLU president's office staff, and the late Rev. Paul C. Lucky, a 1957 graduate.

the desire to focus my life on serving and teaching others." Her mother, her "best friend," is Norwe­ gian, so Running has visited Norway sever­ al times. During one of those visits she studied at a school for old arts and aca­ demics in Trondheim. "My struggles with the language gave me empathy for people with handicaps," she said. "My communications difficulties were handicaps. "People with disabilities also have abili­ ties, but too often they are related to in terms of their disabilities, so they don't have the opportunity to discover or devel­ op their abilities," she continued. Running has worked in a youth mission program for the handicapped, which "helped give direction to my life." During her independent study in Norway she visit­ ed several special education facilities in Norway and was impressed. She also took a PLU Interim course related to the field. At PLU she has majored in education and Scandinavian area studies with a concen­ tration in special education. Running is the daughter of William and Aase Running of Camarillo. A sister, Kristi, graduated from PLU in 1985. Her brother, Edward, is a PLU sophomore.

Jeffrey Saine

PLU Graduate Also Tops Columbia University Graduating Class Jeffrey SOine of Seattle was the valedic­ torian of his graduating class at Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science in New York City this spring. He completed requirements for a 3-2 dual bachelor of science degree from Columbia and PlU. He delivered his valedic­ tory address at Columbia May 17 and returned to PLU for commencement May 21. Soine graduated from Columbia with a 4.06 grade average, achieved with the inclusion of A + grades. There were more than 1,000 students in his graduating class. He has received a Baker Fellowship from Columbia that will help pay for a year of graduate study. The PLU-Columbia 3-2 engineering pro­ gram gives students the best of two set­ tings: breadth at PLU and depth at Colum­ bia. During three years at PLU students learn the social context in which engineers function. Columbia emphasizes advanced studies, research and interaction with industry. "PLU prepared me superbly for the high­ ly competitive Columbia community," Soine said. He is the brother of Laurie Soine, stu­ dent body president at PLU a year ago, who is now a registered nurse at Universi­ ty Hospital in Seattle. His parents are Rev. Ronald and Janice Soine. His father, a pas­ tor at Crown Lutheran Church in Seattle, graduated from PLU in 1961.

ack when some of us were g rowi n g u p , t h e re were fou r acknow l edged p rofessional g ro u ps i n town: doctors, l awyers, teachers a n d p reachers . T hey were accorded d u e esteem , based on their u ncommon amount of formal educatio n . Education was then a respected accom­ p l ish ment. The reputati ons of all fou r g roups have suffered in recent yea rs, as had the con­ cept of formal educat i o n . Doctors, lawyers a n d p reachers h a ve been accused, a m o n g ot h e r t h i n gs, of u n reasonably e n ri c h i n g themselves. Teach­ ers a re chastised if they expect their sala­ ries to keep up with i nflatio n , o r if they ca n't also teach the d isci p l i ne a n d va l u es which u sed to be the respons i b i l i ty of home and c h u rch. But somethi n g even stran ger has h a p­ pened to teachers along the way. Some­ where they seem to have lost thei r " p ro­ fessional" status, even as rock musici a ns and television personalities were cla i m i ng theirs. A prom i nent educator was quoted recently by the Associated Press as sayi ng. " ... all states wil l have to d o a m u c h better - a n d diffe rent - job in the f u t u re if teach i ng is to become (becom el) a 'real p rofession'." If one relies on news reports, one m ight wonder why a nyone wou ld choose to b€ a teacher. Fortu nately, there a re still teach­ ers, students a n d pa rents who u ndersta n d teac h i n g a n d its fo u n d a t i o n a l i m p a ct o n society. For exa m p l e, one of PLU's F u l b ri g h t Scholars this year, G race R u n n i ng, said, "I love lea r n i n g ! I think I have wanted to be a teacher si nce I was i n k i n derga rte n . " She added that she wants to focus her l ife on teach i ng and se rving others. She understa nds what Dr. Robert M u ld­ er, dean of the PLU School of Education, said recently: "School is one i n stitution in our p l u ral i s­ tic society w here all of ou r society's issues - social, econom ic, pol itical a n d mora l i ntersect i n conc rete situations i n vol v i n g i ndividual people: students, fam i l ies, com­ m u n ities - in all thei r variety.

Further, he added, "To u nd ersta nd this is to beg in to u n derstand how teac h i n g is not o n l y a p rofessi o n - it is a distin­ guished p rofessio n . " P L U h a s never faltered i n t h a t belief, and education of teachers has remai ned one of its top p riorities for nearly a century. The school was fou nded o n recognition of the n eed fo r teachers and p reachers in the frontier Pacific Northwest.

Mathers Retires

Of Divinity Degree

After 23-Year Career At PLU Recollections by retiri ng education p ro­ fessor Dr. Marjorie Mathers were rem i nd­ ers of the vast changes that have taken place in society in the post-war period . For young women today, caree r choices a re v i rtually u n l i m ited . Those that choose teaching do so because they believe they w i l l enjoy it and be su ited for it. Dr. Mathers had few choices when she enrol led at Central Wash i ngton State Col­ lege i n E l lensb u rg 40 yea rs ago. "All they offe red for w o m e n w e r e tea c h i n g degrees," she said. Over the years, when people h ave asked her about her choice of ca reer, she says honestly, "I fel l i nto it." Yet she has n o reg rets, and has loved her work no less than a younger teacher who had many choices. M athers has spec i a l i zed in elementary teach i n g , believing that teachers at that level c a n exert a strong i nf l u e nce on you ng l i ves. It has g iven her g reat satisfac­ tion to look across a class of up to 50 o r 6 0 tudents, a n d k n ow t h a t s h e is hel p i n g prepare them for those responsible class­ room positions. She remai ned active as a student herself, earning a degree in each of fou r decades. She received her bachelor's from Central i n 1 953, a master's from Central in 1 96 1 , a second masters from PLU i n 1 974, and a doctorate from Seattle U n iversity i n 1 980. During all of her 2 3 years of teach i ng at PLU, she h a s com m u ted from her home nea r A l k i Poi nt in West Seattle. "The re were ti mes d u ri ng the gaso l i ne shortages I was certain I wou l d be stra nded, at one end or the other," she sa i d . I n ret i rement, she p l a n s t o " p l ay ."

P U Schol r Directs Ar haeological Dig In Egypt's Valley Of The Kings Wad i B i ban ai- Mol u k, or the V a l l ey of the Kings, is wel l known to Egyptolog ists as the p r i nc i pa l buri a l g ro u n d for r u l e rs of the XV lllth-XXth Egypt i a n dynast ies. Among these often elaborately decorat­ ed roy a l tombs a re fo u n d several very mod est a n d u n i nsc r i bed tom bs. I n m a ny cases, the h istury, ownersh i p and relation­ ship of these small tombs to others i n the Val ley a re very much in question. Dr. Donald Rya n , a resea rch associ ate and resident schola r with the PLU Depart­ ment of A n t h ro pology, Is d i rectin g a n archaeological p roject there this sum mer. The exped ition is ca lled the Pacific Luther­ an U n iversity Val ley of The Ki ngs p roject. "The pu rpose of the p roject is to clear, fu l ly doc u m e nt and p reserve a series of these u n in scribed tombs a n d t h e i r con­ tents," said Rya n . Six tom bs have been app roved for exam­ i nation by the Egyptian Antiqu ities O rg a n i­ zatio n . T h e Ca i ro-ba sed g o v e r n m e n t bu reau tightly controls s u c h ventu res, a s t h e risk o f damage t o priceless historical sites and artifacts i s h ig h . "To b e approved as a field p roject d i rec­ tor requires a Ph.D. a n d credible back· gro u n d working i n Egypt," Rya n pointed out. He has been involved in p rojects t here

virt u a l l y every year si nce 1981 . Du ring fou r of those years h e was studying t h e a ncient Egyptian cordage i nd ustry. The exped ition is "a d ream come true" for the 1 97 9 PLU political science g radu­ ate. ' ' I've been d reaming a bout this p lace si nce I was a k i d , " he sa i d . "The people who d iscovered these tom bs were my heroes. D i n osaurs, then archaeology, were my hob­ b i es, a n d I l oved h a n g i n g a ro u n d m u se­ u ms." Many of the tom bs in the Valley have not been wel l resea rched, accord i n g to Ryan. Most a rchaeolog ists have considered the l ittle tom bs bori ng, he asserted . While he doesn't expect a dazz l i n g d is­ covery, he admitted that a nything is possi­ ble. "We do expect to find pottery, a n d to encounter several tom b owners and their coffi ns," he sa i d . T h e p roject is p rivate ly-fu nded.

conflict In China Affects Visiting professors, PLU Exchange students Events u nfolding i n China early i n J u n e were tou c h i n g close t o t h e PLU cam pus. Ten visitling C h i n ese scholars were mon itor­ i ng closely the events in their homeland, and were saddened by the tragic deaths in Beij i ng early Su n day, J u n e 4. M ea nw h i le, p l a n s were bei n g m a d e to bring home a g rou p of 1 1 PLU exchange students. Those stu dents were t raveling in the far south of China near the Bu rmese border in regions u naffected by the con­ fl icts. In add itio n , che mistry p rofessor F red Tobiason and h is wife Dorothy, and com­ m u n ication arts professor Gary W i lson and wife J u d y were t ravelin g in C h i na . The Tobiasons were acco m p a n y i n g the stu­ dents. A l u m n i J i m '88 and Betty '84 Bekerneier were also in China and were i n Beiji ng for five days duri ng the ea rly days of the stu­ dent p rotests. They left Beij i n g o n l y 1 0 hou rs before martial law was decla red . A series of cam pus s u m m e r lectures fea­ t u r i n g v i s i t i ng C h i nese facu lty recei ved a d ded attenti on. One of the speakers d iverted from h i s prepared text to d iscuss the week's events. He deplored the viol ence and p red icted hat u n rest would cont i n ue u nt i l there was some meas u re of satisfClction for the C h i­ nese peop le. "Half of Chi na's population is u nder age 30," he sa i d . "They a re enth usi­ astic about change. If refo rm and change do not h a p pe n , t h e people W i l l n ot be satisfied." He did not expect a major conflict, such as the civil war some were pred ict i n g . He noted t hat civi lia n s can not obtain a rms freely, as they can in t h is cou ntry. He also

believed that the people, even the a rmy, want to solve the problems peacefu l l y . "Chi nese people a re peaceful," he said. He bel ieved that S u n day's k i l l i n g s h a p­ pened because t h e gove r n m ent's aging leaders had "lost face," h u miliated by t h e i r i n ab i l ity to restore o rder, or to con t rol events d u ri ng the earlier visit of Sovi et President M i kh a i l Gorbachev. The govern­ m e nt's i nte rnal power struggle was no dou bt also a cause of much of the i nsta b i li­ ty and u n certainty, he added. He and his fel low visiti n g schol a rs a re aware that if C hina continues its hard-line policies, there is l i ttle futu re, in fact possi­ ble d a n ger, fo r t h e m t h e re . Some a re u ncertain about the fate of their fa m i lies. The Bekemeiers had traveled to Xian and Chengdu after thei r Beij i ng v i s i t . At the t i m� of the B e ij i n g terror they were i n Yueya n g i n southern C h i n a . I m m ediately t h ey had t ravel d iffi c u lties as stude nts were b lDCk i n g tra i n t racks. T hey m a naged to get a bus r i d e to Changsha, but faced the same p roblems. After many hours of delay, they j u st ha p­ pened to be i n a C h i n a International Trave l Service office when they fou n d out about a m i n i bus goi ng to G ua ngzhou . "It was a 28-hour ride, and the bus b roke down fou r or five times, but it was a way out," J i m sa i d . "We also felt l ucky because we got to co m p l ete o u r p l a n ned travels before trou ble started ." As of S u n day, J u ne 1 1 , PLU exch a n ge students and the Tobiasons had also safely reached Hong Kong a n d some were on t heir way home. T h e W i lsons were a lso known to have been ready to depart for Hong Kong.

I decided my responsib i l ity was to my st udent. I had, after all, encou raged her to choose anyone she was a n xious to meet and I had p rom­ ised to fi nd a way to do it.

eu phoria that ended when I returned the sto ries w i t h s u g gested t ra ns positio ns, deto u rs, and what the class came to ca l l "Si ms' famous b rackets" a ro u n d wo rds, p h rases, sentences, e nt i re paragraphs I t ho u g h t s ho u l d be k i l l e d . These w e re a cco m pa n ied by a c r i t i q u e typed S i n g l e s p a ce o n ye l lo w p a p e r - " t h e y e l lo w sheet." Then it was back to the Apple, the Sel ec­ tric, and "the struggle." we went thro u g h d raft after d raft - so meti mes as many as six or seven , And with each, my o ptimism g rew as the sto ries took shape, showed p rom ise. Now and then a stu dent wo u l d seem dejected, spent, only to gain a sec­ o nd wind and renewed enth usiasm, eager even to take o n a new s u bject. O ne d ay a student came to my office and col lapsed i nto the cha i r o p posite my desk. ''I'm exhausted," she sighed, "but I'm having so much fu n , I love writi ng!" It was one of those mo ments teachers l ive fo r, especially those of us who teach writing, When yo u put students thro u g h t h e nitp icking, the less glamorous rigors of re-writing - the d e m a n d s a true writer m ust meet, you can never be sure they w i l l e m e rge st i l l want i n g to be w riters. When t h ey do , when they co m e to love the p rocess as I do, you a re rel i eved, I love to w rite. I also love to teach writ­ ing, For the most p a rt, students take writ­ ing cou rses because it is so met h i n g they really want to do. They a re eager and excited, and when they reach the po int of wonderi ng, as I do, how anyone co uld pos­ sibly want to be so meth ing other than a writer, it is, for me, eu phoria. That is so m e of what I experienced i n my semester at PLU , T h e re were so m e stu­ dents, as there al ways a re, for whom writ­ ing was secondary, but there were others whom I watc h e d beco m e i n creasi n gly enthu si astic. Even for the o n es w ho w i l l perhaps never choose i t as a ca reer, I t h i nk the process of d iscovery, of beco m i ng bet­ ter, was excit ing, And that excitement was i nfectious and what Quickly mol ded fou r­ teen me's into a we. Many of us will stay i n to u c h , a s I have w i t h m a n y fo rmer stu­ dents, another thing I love about teachi ng, t o u r e n d -of-t he-se m es t e r p i c n ic, I asked wh at they h a d gotten out of the class, Most agreed that their su bjects were wo nderfu l, fasci nating, and that they never wo u l d have gotten to know them had it not been fo r doing the a rticle, One stu de nt even i n sisted t h e rew r i t i n g was exciting. As fo r the transcri pts, wel l, they were honest, It certa i n ly wasn't fu n o r interesting b u t they also d i d n't know how they wou l d have done a p rofile without it. When I groaned about the six-i nch pile of fi nal papers I had to read a n d critique, one student q u i pped, "Are yo u accu s i n g this class of having w ritten too m uch?" We a l l laughed, and I co nceded there w a s a t i m e I feared I wo ul d n't have anyt h i ng to read, I also conceded t h e i r i nterviews and p rofi les were some of the best I have received since I began teaching fou r yea rs ago , " B etter than U C S D ?" t hey wanted to know, that being the school they consid­ ered thei r stro ngest co m petitor. "Well l l l l , so me of them," I answered, add­ ing pro u d ly and u n gra m m atica ll y, "You did • goo d ! "




I I i n Roseh i l l Dear Jim. Here is Karen 's piece. . . Cod knows, I must h a ve read 500 similar pieces, b u t none written so wei/. It's almost like listening to the blues. It may not be appropria te for Scene but that is the first publication tha t came to mind. Somehow this should belong to the PL U community. Thank you, Jack (Cady)

ose h i l l cem etery l ies on the outskirts of the t i red-lo ok i n g m i d western town , c row n i n g a h i ll to the north­ wes . It is old and tired-look i n g too, but it is a fa miliar place; I've been there many ti mes. As a c h i l d I went with my mother and sister to put Memorial Day gera n i u ms and l i lacs on the g raves of mother's fi rst h u s­ band, long dead, a n d h i s pare nts, long dead, too. I sometimes think I remember the mother of my mother's fi rst love. May­ be it's only a p ictu re in an old snapshot that my mind recal l s. She was sm a l l, and ornery, fro m what my ol dest h a l f-sister says, even down-ri ght mean at ti mes. But then, who wou ldn't be when you've out­ lived your hu sband and some of you r c h i l­ d ren, and sti l l had the contrary p ra i rie to deal with day i n , day out. The time ca me when my younger sister and I hel ped mother put flowers on her parents' graves and on my dad's pa rents' graves. They were not a l l that far apart i n t h e cemetery, just a row or two apart and down a bit. How clearly I remember put­ ting bou quets of l i lacs, someti mes m i xed with snowba l l or peonies, in fru it jars fil led with water. The fru i t jars were a l most always blue. I have several of them now i n m y cupboards, a n d they're fi lled with d ried beans and rice and barley. And memories. Rosehi l l , it is called, a lthou gh there isn't a rose in the whole p lace. Deer hop fences and eat tender shoots, so I don't i magine a rosebush, even with its thorns, wou l d sur­ vive very long. The road I re member from child hood as g raveled and d u sty is now a blacktop, but not m u c h t ra ve l ed . Wind pu shes over the h i l l and S i g h s soft l y through old p i n es; trees that h a v e su r­ vived fri g i d w i n te rs and scorc h i n g su m­ mers to stand sentinel along the northern and eastern fences of the cemetery. It's the same w i n d that bleW throug h the prai­ rie g rasses two h u n d red years ago, or two thousand, or two h u n d red thousand. Wind whips hair i nto my eyes and p ias­ ters my d ress a g a i nst my legs. The sun beats from a cloud less J uly sky, and from a fencepost a meadowlark tri l l s. It's a sound I've not heard i n a long whi le, The push and tug of wind is something I've not felt in just this way for a long while. But then, I

don't come to Rose h i l l a l l that often any­ more. I've not p u t l ilacs on my g rand par­ ent's g raves for years, not si nce I left my h ometown . Mother d i d, though, every · Memorial Day, right up until she cou l d no l on g e r r e m e m b e r w h a t M e m o r i a l Day meant. Then Dad put out the flowers for her, even on her fi rst hu sba nd's grave. A year ago he and my sister p l a nted peony b ushes beside a simple g rey marble tomb­ stone, but the bushes d i d n 't su rvive the deer and the d ry, d ry summer. Dad d id n't survive much beyond the sum mer, either. I've come to my hometown to "visit," as South Dakotans say, the few relatives who sti l l l i ve here and perhaps a friend or two from high sc hool. Mostly I've come to visit a country cemetery, on top of a h i l l , that holds my memories of youth beneath its SOd. I came to sta nd before t h i s s i m p l e grey headstone that bears t h e na mes of my mother and d a d . I've come with roses, not l i l acs, it's too late in the season for l i l acs. Mother loved roses so, especially red ones. Dad often bought her roses for their a n n i versa ry, at least when he cou ld afford to do so and somet i m es even when he cou l dn't. Now I b r i ng roses for both of them . The grass grows thick over their g raves. One of my brothers pla nted seed last fa l l , and t h e heavy snows a n d ra ins o f spring gave 'it a good start. The roses and wh ite baby's breath agai nst the deep g reen grass make a pleasing, painfu l sig ht. But there sh ould be li lacs; somehow l i lacs with t h e i r d e l i cate lavender c l u sters a n d sweet fragrance a lways speak o f spring in South Dakota. We chose sprays of roses to p l ace on t h e i r caskets, and I can h a rd ly bear the sight of the perfect red blossoms. " Next time I ' l l come w h en I can b r i ng l i lacs." Next time. I don't know if I'll come this way agai n . M y parents sleep i n t h i s quiet p lace, w h i l e I d rift and search to find my share of peace. I'm not a child any longer; I have grown c h i l d ren of my own. Why then t h i s strug­ g le to let go of the past? I hear only the rush of wind carrying songs of meadow­ larks.

being, Just one more time. I touch i nstead the sh ifti ng, bl urring i m ages of memory. "See," the i m ages seem to say, "we are here, we w i l l always be here. You need only to t h i n k of us and reme mber." And in remembering a l l that I've tried so hard not to remem ber, because the pain i s great. I begin t o understand that I need not let go of the past. It is in the past that I find strength and cha racter to shape the present. They were strong, my parents, resol ute against all od ds. They su rvived the Depres­ sion and raised a young fa m i ly with noth­ i n g b u t the l a bor of their h a n d s a n d strength of character. They su rvived a w a r and rejoiced when their oldest son ca me home. They lived to grow old with ch i l d ren and g ra nd ch i l d ren and g reat-g randc h i l d ren gathered a round them. When death came to claim them, they welcomed it. The wind carries the sou n d of a tractor, and with relief I turn from the roses and g reen g rass and t h e m a r b l e tombstone. The cemetery caretaker a p p roaches slowly, as if he doesn 't want to i ntrude. He's come to dig a grave. I wonder how many he's d u g, for he's well u p in years now, and has been doing this for as long as I've known him. The tractor stopped several yards away, a n d when he tu rned the motor off a n d got down stiffly, I waved to h i m . " H i , Jake." The m a n a p p roached, lean and some­ what stooped. H is face is brown a n d deep­ ly l i ned, and his light blue eyes habitually squ int agai nst the su m mer sun. It touches me when he removes his seedcorn ca p and comes to stand beside me. "You must be their oldest one," he nodded toward my parents' headstone. "Yes." "You back visiti n'?" "For awh ile." e nodded . "Yu p . " H e tu rns t h e cap around and around in gna rled-fi ngered hands before putting it back on his head . "YuP," he said aga i n . "All you you ng ones think ya gotta leave. But somethin' d raws ya back once in awhile." I smi led at his reference to you n g ones, for I ' ve not felt yo u n g fo r a n u mber of years, He loo ked down at my parent's g rave and t h e red roses. "Yu p. Too bad it's only memories t h at b ri ng ya back." "They're good memories, Ja ke." He reached up to tug on t h e straps of h is faded b l u e bib overalls. "'Magine so, a l l right." H e nodded aga in and tugged once more on his straps. "'Knew 'em well, you r folks." He paused to look a t me and then down at the m a rb l e stone. "Good fol ks, you mom and dad. Good folks. You r dad was a d a m n good fa rmer. Ch rist, but he hated it when he retired and moved to town . Hard on 'em, hard on both of 'em to leave the fa rm." "Yes," I sa id.

Fast Earns Money For Hungry, But Does It M ake A Difference? By Stuart Rowe When Bread For The World sponso red the recent 1 2th a n n ua l ca m pus fast, th ree hundred students were w i l l i n g to g i ve u p one, two o r three Food Service meals for the day. The fast earned about $ 1 ,200 for food banks and other charities in the a rea. Most stu d e nts who part i c i p ated in the fast a re u n doubtedly proud of their great sacrifice and, i n all honesty, I sal ute them for at least t rying to make a d ifference. But how man of us can truly say we know what it's l i ke to go h u n g ry? I know I don't. As a typical you ngster I often com­ plained about eatin g certa i n foods, th rew rolls and french fries in the cafeterias a n d cheerfu l l y scraped anyth i n g I d i d n 't eat i nto the garbage.

University Center Tacoma,

Not once did I ever worry about whether I wou ld be fed. Three times a day I cou ld count on a nou rish i n g meal being placed before me, k nife and fork in h a n d . Even when the "times got toug h " it was never a concern. So what is it l i ke to be h u n g ry? U n iversi­ ty Pastor M a rt i n Wells com pa res it to h av­ i ng a toot hache. T h e p u lses of p a i n a re cont i n ually nagging at you, clear thought is a n i m possi b i l ity and k i n d n ess and com­ passion are lost in agony. The pain Sim ply doesn't let u p - it doesn't a l low you to forget. Th � t this m ight ha ppen to us is u n l i kely, but It sti l i strikes som e fear in myself. Pastor Wells told a story in cha pel that relates to this fear.

Looking through my rea rview window, a l l I cou ld t h i n k o f was gett i ng away from PLU. After a s u m m e r of Parkla nd a pa rt­ ment l ife and a few weeks of class, I felt I needed to make a p i l g ri mage home. Despite a l l the cha nges I have u nd ergone in the last t h ree years, Newberg, O re. seems to have stu b bornly defied t i me. There is security i n such p laces. It is the same old b l u e col l a r town that I remember it to be. A l l the hot spots t hat I frequented as a Newberg h ig h school student were sti l l ':the places to be" for i the latest crop of k d s wearing their blue and gold lettermen's jackets. This is the town where I g rew u p, had my fi rst kiss, and spent nu merous hours d r i n k­ i n g coffee with my b u d d ies at S h a ri ' s, a local 24-hou r restau rant. Mom and dad sti l l l ive there. I left the student in m e beh i n d , so I cou l d once again become thei r second son, the baby of the fam i ly. Dad's chair at the d i nner table was sti l l dad's cha i r, a nd , the lawn seemed t o beck­ on me to retu rn to that ritual rigorously attended to in years past - lawn mowi n g . I resisted the tem ptati o n . Those days are beh i nd me. My m ot h e r a n d fath e r, t h o u g h they h ave com p l etely re modeled my former bedroom, were, as usual, g lad to see me. Going home can be therapeutic to the Lute who needs to get away from it a l l . T h e re is someth i n g t h a t you s h o u l d remem ber, h oweve r, b efo re w a l k i ng through the door to your house. Be p re­ pa red to leave the student beh i n d . O nce you a re i nside, you become your parents favorite son or daug hter, or baby of t he fam i ly once agai n . You are no l onger on you r own . You assu me the role you left on the doorstep the day before your fresh­ man orientation weekend. That means you should forget the tons of rea d i ng you have to do for you psychol­ ogy or p h i losophy class. Going home was good for me. I wanted to be their dependent son , ra i d the refrig­ erator, and sleep i n my own bed for the weekend. The fu n ny thing about t h e whole weekend was that o n Satu rday night I real­ ly q u estioned whether I wou l d rather be at home or at schoo l . Later hat weekend, I was chatt i ng w i t h a few h i g h school friends and t o l d t hem t hat I d id n't know if I was a n O regon i a n anymore. Washington h a s snatched u p m y hometown roots and g iven them a strong replanting a bout 1 50 m i l es nort h . W h e n I awakened o n Su nday, I fo u n d myself wa n t i n g t o b e back o n c a m p us Most of the people t hat add to my l ife are o n the PLU c a m p u s . Mom a n d dad w i l l always b e here for me. The . l ittl e c h a n g e Newberg has u nder­ g(�me I n the last few years can't keep up With the changing I have done.

For a short time we stood in silence, side by si de, both reme m bering. J a ke sig hed deeply and d ropped his hands to his sides. "Good to see ya, girl." He held out h is hand and I took it in both of m i ne. His grip was strong and sure. He nodded goodbye, then tu rned away to dig yet a not her g rave. Wind ruffles the leaves of the roses and

carries away the sound of Jake's tractor. I look about one last ti me, at the way pines look as w i n d sifts t h ro u g h their dusky green needles, the way tops of t rees mark the edge of town, the way the river coils through hay meadows to flow beneath the rai l road bridge and on aro u n d town, the way distances shimmer with heat. the way I feel standing here in t h i s lonely place and know I a m not alone.

H u n g ry . . . Continued from page


A mother was strolling to the kitchen to plan the next meal for her fam ily. Dishes and ing redients were j uggled through her m ind as she a pproached the refrigerator. Open ing the door, however, left her horri­ fied and speechl ess - nothi n g was left on the shelves of a once fu l l ice box. Not one scrap of food rem ained. There hadn't been a b u rg l a ry and she cou ldn't think of one reasonable explana­ tion for why the food was m issing. Until she'saw her son. Her boy had heard about hu nger, how it felt a n d w h at it did to you . He was so scared 'by the notion h e m i g h t have to experience the same feeli ngs that he ate every bit of food in the refrigerator Fear of hu nger had such a g rasp on the boy that good reason and rea l ity were q u ickly left beh in d. Have a ny of us experienced this fear of hunger? Probably not. Shou ld anyone have to experience this kind of fear? No. And yet we do so l ittle to help out the h u n g ry people who really need it. Pastor Wells told of a man who was bei ng criticized for being u nem p l oyed . "Get a job a n d su p port you r fa m i ly!" he was told. But the m a n a l ready had a fu ll, time job. It consisted of wanderi ng the city fro m d u m pster to d u m pster, trying to scrape together enough food to feed his

fa mi ly of four. If the man Quit is job, ,he a n d his fam ily would starve. Have any of us experienced this fear of hunger? Probably not. Should a nyone have to experience this fear? No. And yet we do so little to hel p the h u ngry people i n this wo rld. And then there is another poor boy who was was forced to hide food in h is room whenever he could so that he could visit t h i s secret cache for nou rishment whenev­ er the h u n g e r p a i n s got too powerfu l .

T h i n k a b o u t the needy, and then t h i n k about how well off you a re and yes, feel g u i lty - but g ive thankfully. Be t h a n kfu l t hat you a re not in their place.

A Greeting to the M ay, 1 9 89 G ra d u ates at Co m m encem ent

President William Rieke

'My overriding thought throughout the years as we approach Com­ mencement has always been intense pride in the graduates and fer­ vent expectations for subsequent their accomplishments. '

he most i m portant event of the academic year is gradua­ tion - or Com mencement. This ceremony rep resents t h e con­ cluding phase, for many gradu­ ates, of formal study and prepa­ ra t i o n , a n d t he beg i n n i n g of i ndependence w i t h its dem and­ i ng responsi bil i t i es. For others, continuing graduate studies are p l a n n ed with p rofess i o n a l futu res not yet defi n ite. At PLU, this exce pt ional generation of seniors - the class of 1 989 w i l l be re m e m bered for its active i nvolvement in u niversity, com m u n ity, a n d world issues, for its energetic confro ntation of contemporary problems, and for its extraordi n a ry concern for the future of their alma mater. My o ve r r i d i n g thought t h r o u g h o u t t h e yea rs a s we a p p roach Co m m encement has always been i ntense pride in the gradu ates and fervent expecta­ t i o n s for t h e i r s u bseq u e n t accom pl ishments, together with persistent hope for their future happiness and well-bei ng. That one thought is the same now. What is differe nt i s that this 1 988/89 academ ic year now ending is not the sa me as other years. Even our ti me-honored trad itional Com mencement cer­ emony is u nu s u a l t h i s year; it differs in form and in su bsta nce. In form because 75 more per­ sons com mence t h i s year than last, and because the ceremony is enhanced by a high tech nolo· gy, big scree n telec ast t o this au dience, and s i m U lta neous- l i ve television coverage to observers scattered across the entire ca m­ p us. The difference i n substance today is a qual itative one - viz., growth and development by u n i ­ versity and graduates a l i ke. For the u niversity, after a yea r of able management u nder the


i nte r i m d i rect i o n of P rovost David Yagow - whom I p u blicly com mend and thank - the uni­ versity a n t i c i pates strong new leadersh i p with h e advent on J u l y 1 7 from the u n ivers i ty of Texas, Aust i n , of its new provost, Dr. J. Robert Wi l ls. For the gradu­ ates, the d i fferen ce i su bstan­ tive because we salute not s i m­ ply you r n u merical su p eriority, but rather the fact that you , p l u s those a rou nd you i n you r c l ass have ea rned h i sto r i c a l l y u n p reced e nted a c a d e m i c a n d co-curricular honors a n d awards. A com plete l isti n g is i m possi ble, but consider, if you w i l l , that d u ring 1 988/89 athletic, forensic, jou rnal istic, m usical and other a rt awards were co l l ected i n record nu mbers; three F u lbright Schol ars were named when most fou r-year northwest col leges and u niversities have none; a mathe­ matician finished i n the top 7th perce n t i l e in national com peti­ t i o n ; a b u s i n ess s t u d e n t p re­ vailed above all others i n state­ w i d e C PA exa m i n a t io n s ; e n g i ­ neering tra nsfer students from PLU were fi rst ran ked a m o n g g ra d u ates from m ajor m id west a n d eastern u n iversit ies; a clas­ sics senior com peted as a state final ist for a Rhodes Scholarship; a n d a 1 985 grad uate beca m e the first PLU a l u m n a to be hon­ ored by earn ing with her team of col leagues, the Pul itzer prize i n jou rnalism. Bigger by itself is not n ecessa rily better, but b i g­ ger w i t h t h e acade m i c a n d co­ curricular records you a n d your colleag ues have amassed is clear evidence of your q u a l ity a nd that of your u n i versity. What then by way of "com­ ments" may be usefully d i rected to you who a re so acco m p l ished, a nd to you r fa m i ly and friends, as wel l as to t hose of us who con t i n u e at the u n i versi ty? I s h o u l d know, I p re s u m e , for today i s the 35th occasion at this u n i versity when I have had such an opportu n ity. Today I bring not only my own comments, however but also a greet i n g . A greet i n g 11 r Cl m pted by one I received just /2 weeks a g o from you g ra d u ates a n d other st udents on t h e occasion of my birthday. In keeping with the positive and somewhat fes­ tive mood that has typified all of 1 988/89, I received an awesome 2' x 3 ' posterboard card jam med with t he written t h o u g hts and w i s hes of sco res of s u d en ts (a n d even fa c u lty a n d staff). Though pa ked dense ly over the 6 square feet of the ca rd, I have been a b l e to d i scern that the g reet i ngs were e x p ressed in t h ree sty l es o r form s. There were (1 ) the formal and serious, (2) the crazy and frivolous and, .


f i n a l l y (3) the joyo us a nd l i g ht­ h earted . May I i l l ust rate? The fo r m a l a n d se r i o u s w r i t e rs pe n n ed, "Co n g rat u l atio n s and Best Wishes," or " Tha n k you for fou r of th e best yea rs o f m y l ife, " of "It's been a great yearl" In a cont rast, the crazy and friv­ o l o u s i n scri b ed , " Y o u a re so coo l ," " B i l l baby, st y fresh ! ' ' ' " Push ing yo r teens?," "Hey, Dr. R . , come down fo r ca rds o n Thu rsday. B r t n g cash , w e need it." Or ''I'd buy yOU a card, but yOU a l ready have all my money l" And, then, the joyous and l i g ht­ hea rted demonstrated their s k i l l with messages i n fore i g n l a n ­ g u ages ( I picked o u t Spanish, C h i ­ nese, and Germa n), o r by opti­ m i stic sta t e m e nts, " H ey B i l l, t h a nks, it's been oh so swe l l , " ' have a wonderfu l day a n d year," and "Keep up the good work." In s i m i l ar ve i n , t he n , I greet you . Form a l ly a n d s e r i o u s l y I commend you and a l l who sup­ p o rted you . R ej o i ce i n yo u r acco m pl ish m e n ts' Take h e a rt from what you have d o n e to em bolden you for the u ncerta i n ­ ties a n d trials o f t h e futu re. Nev­ er sh i rk from engaging tomor­ row head-on - even as you have encountered the past. With cra­ zy and frivolous, yet deliberate, la nguage I chide you. Your edu­ cation is not fi n ished today. You have only beg u n . Never cease to learn. As great as you are, many are greater. Give respect where respect is d u e . The meekest, the least ed ucated person, has much to teach you . Seek it a n d receive it eagerly, openly! And with joy and l i g ht-hearted n ess, I encour­ age you. Never fear fa i l u re, but celebrate and learn from mis­ takes. After all, the best hitter will strike out more often than hit home runs. Keep clear you r determ i na t i o n a n d sense of d i rection. Persevere in the con­ viction that o n l y i n service to h u m a n ki n d does l i fe f i n d true fulfil l ment and cont i n u i n g mean­ i ng A g reet i n g at Co m m en ce­ ment? Yes, one motivated by a rema rkable b i rthday card freely g i ven and g ratefu l ly rece i ved. One wh i c h for m a l l y c o m m e nds, frivolously c h i des, a nd joyfu l l y encou rages. One which, most of a l l , is e n t i rely fa ithful to t h e message o f i n tense pride i n you and e x pectat io n a n d h o p e for you r future. S u c h pride, expecta­ ti o n a nd h o p e r e n ot s i m p l e emotions or wishes, b u t rat her are g rac ious a n d c e r a i n gifts received by all of us who claim t h e status of being chi l d re n of God. This c h i l d of God, t h e n , greets y o u ch i l d ren o f God you ng and not as you ng - with the confident p rayer that our creator, redeemer a n d sanctifier God w i l l g u id e a n d keep you.

Stude nts cou ld attend dances, he wrote, "for the sake of honest d i sc i p l i n e . . . t o learn reverence and mod­ esty i n conversation and deport­ m e n t . " There were l i m its, of course: "We shou ld severely p u n­ ish those who foolish ly cause d is­ t u rbances at such gat h e ri ngs, and especi a l l y t hose who a re i m modest in thei r d a n c i n g a n d l e a d g i rls i n gyrations beyond the com mon h a rmony of m od ­ est danci ng." Luther d i d not t h i n k eat i n g and d ri n king were t o b l a m e even t h o u g h some peo p l e beca m e pigs. Dancing was t h e same: "Go ahead and dance. Faith a n d love are lost neither by da ncing nor by sitt i ng out the dance, provid­ ed you do what you d o w i t h decency a n d m od e rat i o n . " T h is dancing M a rt i n Luther was not q u oted in cha pel talks d u ri ng PLU's fi rst seventy-five years. In November 1 894, one month after PLU was lau nched, the fac­ u lty decided students could not attend dances either on or off the ca m pus. President Bj ug H a r­ stad questioned the advisa b i l ity of an absolute pro h i bition to no ava i l . The rule remai ned in p lace. M a n y stu dents ag reed w i t h the proh i b ition b u t there is evi­ dence to suggest that other stu­ dents d i d n 't and danced at par­ ties and someti mes at p u b l ic houses.

The Dochandorris Fund

By Harvey Neufeld Vice-president, Church Relations

" N o fa nfare w h e n I g o , " rema rked D r . Carl isle Di etrich not long ago. For someone who served the p u b l i c for over 50 years it seem ed a stra n g e l ast i nstruction. D u ri ng the ' 30s " Doc" was a h e a l t h a d mi n istrator i n t h e slums o f Ch icago. T h e rema i nder of his long career was spent as a d e rmatolog i st in Taco m a . H i s w i fe Dorris s h a red h i s m a ny years of service. H i s Pa r k l a n d home, wh ere he died May 1 9 at age 84, was fil led with a rtifacts of a long medical career, memorabilia of his avoca­ tion - horses - and rem i nders of his wife. Dorris, who p redeceased Doc years ago, was a l ways on his m i nd . With her he had shared the keen i nterest in horses. They were both recogn i zed horse p ro­ fessiona ls, experts on breed i n g a nd ped igree.

Perhaps because they had no children, Doc was determ ined to help youth. Particu larly athletes, a nd m o re p a rt i c u l a r l y women athletes - in memory of h i s wife. I reca l l my fi rst visit to h is home. It was tense. Doc cou l d seem g ruff, a n d the dobermans on either side of m e d idn't help. But he cou ld also be gentle and tender. He asked if PLU needed any h e l p for women's a t h l etic schol a rshi ps. "Of course," I sa i d . N o n e o f us were prepa red for t h e extent of h i s g e n erosity over the years. After the schol­ ars h i p endowment came anoth­ er half m i l l io n d o l la rs for the t h i rd floor of Mortvedt Libra ry. F i n a "y at the end, he gave everyth i n g to PLU . Befo re h i s death he h a d signed over v i rtu­ a l ly a"; in h i s w i l l he gave t h e re m a i n d e r: s ad d l es , barns, plaques, a c lassic Porsche, the

house, the pastu res along Clover Creek. From the ea rly days when he created the Dochandorris schol­ a rsh i p fund, it was clear where his love lay - to b u i l d up t h e l i ves of others. Though he was not one to speak of rel ig ious m atters, h i s fru g a l a n d s i m p l e l ife style beca me his confession. One of t h e m ost re m a rk a b l e stories of a l l time is about t h e poor widow who gave a l l s h e had as a n exp ression of her fa i t h . Doc too gave a l l he h a d . Every­ thing. No fanfa re, but Doc, a n d h i s beloved Dorris, w i l l be remem­ bered. A nd it seems appropriate somehow - a doc h a ndorris is part of a horseman's equi pment. the sti rrup cup used traditional­ l y for a fa rewe l l d ri n k when someone is about to depart. Farewell, Doc!

W h e re Is Your W i l l ?

An attorney related the fol low­ i ng story to me: one of h is cli­ ents, after sig n i ng a n u pd ated w i l l , was leaving the office. The attorney asked his client if she had a safe place for the origi nal w i l l . She re pl ied, "Oh, yes, there is a loose brick i n the fire place and I can put the wi l l behind it." The cl ient thought she had a safe pl ace for sto r i n g t h e w i l l , which was enti rely true. Howev­ er, it was also very possible that at her death no one would find

the will!

Recently, I was i n volved with a situation i n which a copy of the w i l l was i n the fi les of the per-

so n a l re p rese ntat ive. Howeve r, the original w i l l was no where to be fou n d . Even t h o u g h t h e attorney w h o h a d d rawn t h e w i l l attested t o the fact t h a t t h e copy of t h e w i l l was defi n itely a copy of the o r i g i na l , the co u rt r u l ed that the copy was n ot acceptable because the original cou l d have been destroyed by t h e p e rson w h o d i ed . M e re l y hav i ng a copy of the original w i l l d i d n o t m e a n t h a t t h e copy wou ld be acceptab l e for p ro­ bate! The net res u lt is that the i n t e n t i o n of the p e rson w h o d ied, assu m i n g that he did not destroy the ori g i n a l w i l l , was

thwa rted beca u se the orig i na l w i l l was not ava i lable!
