ess than eight months rem a i n before Pacific Luthera n U n i versity begins its year-long cente n n i a l observa nce, a n d i n many ways one gets the impression that it is already u nderway. It seems everyone is involved i n planning, or at least a nticipat­ ing, their roles and participation. As p l a n n i n g fo r a myriad of special events has proceeded, the celebration has come to mean d ifferent things to d iffer­ ent groups of people, reflecting the vast diversity of PLU constituencies and inter­ est groups. The phenomenon was inevitable as every campus unit and major constituency were invited to share in pla n ning. Students wil l pa rtici pate i n many activi· ties, but their major organ izational effort will be focused on making 1 990 Homecom­ ing Week an u nusually gala event.

PLU-Baltic Exchange Program A U.S. First By Jim peterson

he first U . s. governme nt-sponso red program i ntended to assist the Baltic nations with development of their economies is being conducted by Pacific Lutheran University. The PLU School of Busi ness Ad min istra­ tion has received a $ 7 5 ,000 g rant from the U.s. Information Agency to set up aca­ demic exchange programs with u n ive rsi­ ties in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Dr. Gu ndar King, dean of the school, spent three weeks in August in the Baltic countries. He presented a o ne-week semi­ nar in Riga, Latvia, on "the economic devel­ opment of a sove reig n nation" and lec­ tured at the universities on "how to set up schools of business." He also screened potential students for the exchange programs that w i l l begin next spring. These students wi l l be desig­ nated Samantha Smith Scholars. The project is a part of the Samantha Smith Memorial Exchange Program, named for t h e young New England g i r l who charmed the world with her written pl ea

Riga, Latvia

for peace to then Soviet leader Yu ri And ro­ pov and subsequent trip to the Soviet Union. She later died in an ai rplane crash. Bal ic Schools involved in the exchange are the Riga and Kau nas (Lithuania) Poly­ technic Insti tutes and the Estonian Busi­ ness School i n Tal l i n n . The program is also expected to expand to the recently reopened Vytau tas The Great (Witold) U n i­ versity, where new concepts in education are being pio nee red and where its govern­ ing board members are fro m western co untries, King pointed out that while the Baltic countries, like others in the Soviet sphere, are i nterested i n development of market d riven free enterprise econom ies, they have vi rtually no experience or expertise in these areas. "Thus education is a vital i n i­ tial priority," he said. He noted that until recently i t was com­ mon for Balt ic students to learn about capitalist systems by studying Charles Dick­ ens. Fo r Dr. King, 63, born and raised in Riga, the new venture is a poignant real izat ion of lifelong dreams. Forty-five years ago, as Soviet armies were sweeping across the tiny Bal tic countries, he and remai n i � g mem bers of his family had to make rapid, heart-rending decisions about their futu re. His father had already been deported to S iberia and two brottlers had bee n kil led . G u ndar, then 1 8, and a b roth er, Tal i s,

decided to leave fo r the West_ Of those who stayed, his mother was l ater deported and two other brothers met death. "I remember an i nde pen dent Latvia," says King. "I know what they lost. and what they are now gaini ng," Over the decades, King has become an i nternational ly-recogn ized expert on Baltic economic syste ms. He was also the orga­ ni zer an d fi rst president of the Assoc iation for the Advancement of Baltic Studies. King has visited the Baltic states on ly once before si nce 1944. Following a 1976 visit he said he wou l d not go back to h is hom eland u nt i l t h e gove r n m e n t was changed . It is a measu re of the rad ical changes tak ing place that he has accepted the invitation, not only to retu rn, but to spearhead a h ighly visible prog ram of vital importance to the futu re of these coun­ tries. Students from the Baltic may study American cu lture, busi ness management and eco logy, among other cou rse options at P L U . American stude nts at the Baltic schools may pursue either formal academ­ ic stud ies or supervised i nternshi ps_ PLU Political Science Professo r Dr. Donald Farmer w i ll be th resident director of the program with headq uarters in R iga .

Student prog ams

Steve Smith


dditional scholars h i p fu nds, new ad m i n istrative perso n­ nel, increased program activities and beautifu l ly remodeled offic­ es bear evidence of a new era in min ority student programs at PLU. Ea r l i e r th i s yea r the PLU adm i nistration pledged $ 50,000 in schola rs h i p funds specifi ca l ly earmarked to encourage more mino rity students to attend PLU. On Nov. 1 3, Security Pacific Bank plans a specia l program for leaders in busi ness and educa­ tion to call renewed attention to its endowed sch o l a rs h i p p ro­ g ram for m i nority stude nts in busi ness at PLU. Several yea rs ago Rain ier Bank, later merged with Secu rity Pacific, pl edged S200,OOO toward the p rogram, and Secu rity Pac ifk is reinforc­ ing that commitment. Last spring the Office of Stu­ dent Life reo rga nized its special student services into one m u lti­ faceted M I CA Se rv ices office. The offi ce, und er d i rection of Cristi n a del Rosario, p rov ides prog ra ms and counselmg for Minority, Internation al, Com mut­ er and Adult students. It represe nts an a m b itious commitment to special constitu­ encies that is u ncom m o n at smaller schools. Steve Smith, a PLU a l u m n us who ea rned h i s b a c h e l o r ' s degree i n 1983 i n psych ology and h is master's degree in edu­ cation i n 1988, is the minority student coord i nator . Sm ith's charge is two-fo l d : he works closely with the Ad m i ssions office to recruit m i nority stu­ de nts and is o rg a n i z i n g p ro· grams and activities to encour­ age them to stay once they are on campus. The u n i versity scholarsh i p funds, desig nated a s M i n o rity Leadersh ip Awards, range from

S500 to S2, 500 and are intended to s u p p l e m e n t n eed-bas ed awards. Twenty-two reci p ients h a ve been n a m ed for the 1 989-90 academic yea r. An additional 1 9 students are receiving sc holars h i ps from the Secu rity Pacific fu nd. PLU conti n ues as the Pierce Cou nty headquarters of M ESA ( M athematics, Engi neering, Sci­ ence Achievement), a science-ori­ e n ted en richment program for m i nority h i gh school stu de nts. Brenda Wal ker coord i n ates the progra m s and activities on the PLU ca m p u s and i n local high schools. MESA has developed a wide network of i nvolved people i n both the education and business com m u n ity, according to Wal ker.

II f you have one good person you c a n do some g reat things." Pa cific Lutheran U n i versity's minority affa i rs coord i n ator, Steve Sm ith , reflected on h is recol lection of P h i l l i p M i n er, a n Ad missions Office admi nistrator at PLU from 1 972-84. M i ner, an Af r i c a n A m e r i ca n , p r o v i d e d much o f t h e c a m p u s e n e rgy res u lting i n increased mino rity e n ro l l m en ts, acti ve c a m p u s m i nority prog rams, and PLU visi­ b i l i ty i n the loca l minority co m­ mu nity. H i s was not a lone effort, but h is enthu siasm and pe rso nal ity attracted others to become involved on a variety of fronts. S m i t h , though m o re soft­ spoken than M i ner, h opes h is tenure will also be one of visible activity on behalf of m in o rities on campus. " I have had a positive experi­ ence at PLU as both an u nder­ g radu ate a n d g radu ate stu­ dent" he sa id. "It's the kind of experience I wou l d l i ke to en cou rage more mi norities to explore." He adm its it is not an easy task. The u n i versity co m m i t­ ment and support of many per­ sons on campus are pluses, but finances and demograph ics w i l l remain chronic problems. By heritage, PLU is a "white" campus which does not seem c u l t u ra l l y i n viting t o many minorities. And a lack of sc holar­ ship su pport has become more acute with the decline i n federal fu nds in recent years PLU also is at a com petitive d i sadvantage i n h i r i n g h i g h l y qual ified m i nority fac ulty mem­ bers a n d a d m i n i strators, who can com mand premium salaries. "The renewed comm itment this yea r h e l ps," Sm ith sa i d . "Hopefu lly it will demonstrate the u n iversity's i ntentions." He also hopes that PLU can encou r­ age some of its minority g radu­ ates to stay, or retu rn, to cam­ pus as employees, as he d id . "P ro bably a majo rity of PLU staffers work here for reasons other than opti m u m salary lev­ els," he conti n u ed . "If we ca n give ou r m i n o rity stu dents a positive ca mpus experience and enco u rage con cepts of career vocation a nd service, they too will feel a loyalty and willingness to retu rn." A native of Port l a n d , Ore., Sm ith is typ ical of many middle class m i norities who have grown up "stradd l ing" cultures. The son of an engi neer and stepson of a h i gh school a d m i n i strator, he g rew up with m a n y w h i te friends. At home and at PLU he was accepted as "Steve, a fun guy to be with," b u t there was l ittle

encouragement fo r "Steve, the black person." He experie nced a lonel iness that confronts most m i nority individuals i n a majority world. It was d i ff i c u l t to share h i s raci a l and cultural fee l i ngs with oth e r w i s e co n g e nia l friends. Though not a campus activist at PLU , he sometimes ap preciat­ ed the com panionsh ip of bla cks. They wo u l d then be asked by w e ll-me a n i n g w h ite stud e nts why they sepa rated themselves. " M ost peop le seek cu l t u r al reinforcement." he said . "That's true of Scand inavians, or differ­ ent religious grou ps, ath letes or even different academic majors. Why not blacks?" He added, "We see i ntegration as a desirable goal. But i ntegra­ tion doesn't have to mean aban­ doning our cu ltu ral g roup." While se rious racial di scussions ca n be as sensitive, and some­ times as "taboo" as relig ion and pol itics, they are necessary, for t h e emoti o n a l well-being and growth of the m i nority as well as for the awareness of the majority. C u ltural and racial dif­ ferences don't j u st disappear by wish ing them away, Smith point­ ed out. He h o pes that his own ener­ gies, and more encouragement of bl ack stu dent g roups (BANTU) will help fi l l the void expe rienced by m i n o rity stu d e n ts. "They need to know we are aware of their con cern s and co m m i tted to their welfare," he sa id. Smith also h opes that more cam pu s a ctivity and increased fi n a ncia l c o m m itments wi l l tra nslate i nto renewed i nterest i n PLU in the minority com m u n i­ ty. While many i n that co mmuni­ ty h ave had positive experiences with PLU indi v i d ua ls, they tend to retai n a negative i m age of the i nstituti on. Sm ith p rea, �ted that increas­ ing eth nic d iVersity on all cam­ puses, including PLU, is the trend of the futu re . He poi nted out that homogenous campus popu­ lations of the past reflected the p r edo m i n a ntly h o m o g e n ous society i n which they existed. "The busi ness and professional com m u n i ties w i l l conti n u e to demand educated persons. AQd as they g row to serve m o re d iverse publ ics, they will seek a more d iverse employment mix," he observed. The trend is s i m i l a r to, a nd parallel to, that being experi­ enced with respect to the global com m u n ity. G roups, l i ke soci et­ ies, must reach out to each oth­ er to b u i l d g reater awareness and understanding. •

Three Professors Earn Awards For Teaching Excellence A com m itment to exce l lence in teach ing at PLU has been sup­ ported for fo ur years by the Bu rlington Northern Fou ndation Facu lty Ach ievement Award s program. Awards are presented to three outstanding professors each year. This fal l's reCi p i ents are J udith Ramaglia, busi ness admin­ istration; Robert Stivers, rel igion; and Fred Tobiaso n, chemistry. Now in her eighth year at PLU, Ramag l ia served as d i rector of accounting prog rams last year. Her co lleag ues say the sign ifi­ cance of her scholarship is i nter­ d i sci p l i na ry strength and the enhancing of classroom teach ing effectiveness. She presented four papers at p rofessional conferences t h i s year o n topics related to in terna­ tional ization of cou rses. Her lan­ guage research i nd icates that the i nterpretation of the mean­ i ng of acco u n t i n g terms depends, t o a degree, on cultur­ al group membership. A 1 6-year faculty veteran, Sti­ vers was also cited for h is com­ m i tment to i n terdisc i p l i nary studies and hi s contributions to the Integrated Stud ies Program. One senior call ed Stivers' Interim cou rse, "Christian Moral Issues," the best cou rse he ever had . Stivers' co ntributions to the field of Ch ristian eth ics, i n partic­ u lar his i n novative ap proach to the economics of sustainab i lity, have earned him national atten­ tion. The author of two previous books, he co-authored a th i rd , Christian Ethics: A Case Method Approach, and edited a fourth, Reformed Faith and Economics,

this past year. He is described as "an energet­ ic and creative scholar who has brought his intel lectual gifts to

bear on mult ip!e aspects of u n i­ versity life." Tobiason is beginning hiS 24th year on the faculty. He contin­ ues to direct a nationally-recog­ n i zed student-facu l ty research program in the area of phenolic polymers. Last year he or one of h is stu­ dents presented fo u r profession­ al papers, i n c l u d i n g p resenta­ tions at the American Chem ical Society national meeting and at t h e Acad emy of Science i n Zag reb, Yugoslavia. He also auth ored or co-au thored (with students) t h ree pr ofessi o nal papers. In J u n e he and 11 PLU stu­ d e n ts ret u r n e d p rematu rely from study i n China due to the widespread d istu rbances there. This is h i s sixth ou tstan d i ng professor award . The S1 ,500 awards are fu nded by a Fo u n dation g rant. Recipi­ ents are selected from nomi na­ tions submitted by al l cam pus schools and d i visions. The pro­ gram is funded through 1 991 . Previ ous award w i n n ers were Stu art Bancroft and Gerald Myers, business ad m i n istration; Stan Brue, economics; Paul Men­ ze l , p h i l osophy; Wil l iam Becvar, com m u n ication arts; Ed Clausen and Chris Brown ing, h istory; Ann Kel l eher, political science; and Ann Hi rsch, n u rsi ng.

Less than five years later a new jazz­ news format and 24-ho u r service d istin­ guished KPLU from its com petitors. Listeners and professionals, nearby and nationwide, have been ta k i ng n otice, as translators fed the station sig nal through­ out western Wa shington, the KPLU news desk fed nort hwest news to the nation via N PR and the station beca me a regular sponsor of live area jazz events. The visibil ity was made possible by a transm itter at Port O rchard on property provided by Burl i ngton Northern ra i l road. It provided a vastly improved signal over the previous ca mp us-based transm itter, but sti l l was essentially just "peeking over the top" of average terrain at 620 feet. So coverage remai ned spotty. FM's li ne­ of-sight signal tends to b u m p into h i lls, mounta ins a nd even bui l di ngs, leaving large pocket areas with poor reception or no signal at all. Thus, station personnel have rema i ned , alert to opportu n ities for further i m p rove­ ments. The right opportun ity su rfaced three years ago, and since then, another bold move has been in p rog ress. After working through a host of tech nical and bureaucratic detai l s, KPLU-FM is now tra ns­ mitting from a new antenna on West Tiger Mountain near Issaquah, overlooki ng Seat­ tle and environs from 3,084 feet. It is hun­ d reds of feet hi gh er than the traditional Cougar Mounta in site from which the best heard Seattle area stations transm it. It is also a site that only a mountain goat could love, accessible via a prim itive cres­ tline trail, and where wi nter winds can cre­ ate horizontal icicles, accord i n g to Ch ief Engi neer David Christian. "With the new signal we are 'ta l k i ng' with a public rad io sig nal second to none," said Station General Manager Martin Neeb. "It is a state-of-the-art broadcast site wh ich we believe w i l l produce the best radio sou n d and reception a nywhere i n the Puget Sound area." Joining KPLU on the tower are commer­ cial stations KLSY, KRPM, KPMS and "host" KBSG, a Viacom-owned statio n . All are major area stations. KPLU retains its transm itter at Port Orchard as a backup "so electrical interrup'ons from storms and other fai l u res will not keep us from our appointed duty - 24 hours a day, seven days a week," said Neeb. The move was fu nded by contri butions from listeners and several grants. The Pub­ lic Broadcast Fou ndation of Southwest Wash i ngton provided the pace sett i ng chal lenge g ra n t . Other g ra n ts were received from the Haas, B u rli ngton North­ ern, Fuchs and American Fou ndations, Old National Bank and the state of Wash i ng­ ton . T h e transmitter move i s the latest devel­ opment in a 23-year saga of station prog­ ress that began with 1 0-watt capabil ity in 1965. Five years later power was i ncreased to 40,000 watts. In 1980 the Port Orchard

site was fou nd, making possible the leap to 1 00,000 watts of power. With translators added later i n eight locations i n western Washington, KPLU-FM cou ld be heard from Ca nada to O regon and by more people than any other radio station in the state. The Seattle-Tacoma ma rket, with over two mi llion people, is the 1 6th largest in the nation. Ironically, the station wil l no longer have to tra n smit at 1 00,000 watts, which w i l l allow the transmitter t o "coast" below its capacity and increase the life span of the equi pment, sa id Ch ristian. For persons fa m i l i ar with PLU rad io-TV­ audio over nearly three decades, it comes as no surprise that Chri st i a n has once aga i n been the technical wizard behind the move. His mastery of electronics and yea­ man capacities ha ve made all previous KPLU-FM advances possible, as well as those in the PLU television and audio ser­ vices operations. Th ese advances wou ld have been fiscally prohibitive if cont racted off-campus. "There is so me risk invol ved in a project of this magn itude," Ch ristian added. '''We cou ld sit back and say we have done all we can do, that the technical or financial risks are too great. Or we can go out and get our noses b lood ied a bit, and do it. "It was the kind of opportunity that we knew going in that if we didn't do it, we'd always wish we had," he observed. He esti-

Of Weste rn Was h i ngton mated that the station will be add i ng some 5,000 square miles of coverage and i m p roved signal in areas a l ready covered. The site is owned by Weyerhaeuser, and i s leased by Viacom. KPLU-FM was the fi rst of five stations who exp ressed i nterest in leasing antenna space. "PLU is fo rtu nate to have one of only four full-power N PR stations i n Washington state," said Neeb. "It is the o n l y one l icensed to a n i ndependent i n st itution. KPLU is a major u niversity resou rce, keep­ i n g PLU i n public view and reflect i ng its qual ity academics and service." Since the regional move n i ne years ago, public support has i ncreased to the point where 77 percent of the station's budget is generated by KPLU apart from un iversity resources. Ch ristian hasn't yet moved a mountain. But he has been able to make one talk. For western Was h i n gt o n residen ts, if you haven't been able to get KPLU, or recep­ tion has been poor, tune in 88.5 or you r translator frequency now. You shou ld be in for a pl easant su rprise. *

Prof Becomes Intern Under Tutelage Of Former Student By Kathleen Hosfeld '81 n the back of my mind reside a n um ber of di ffe rent voices that provide com­ menta ry or suggestions a bout what I am doing at any given point in time. I hea r r.iY mother's voice, at certa i n times, su ggest i n g that I wou l d b e more thoughtful or less sel f-centered or that I shou l d eat more peas. M y fa ther's voice tells me to be more careful. to plan ahead and to eat more peas. The cast of cha racters in the back of my bra i n is comprised of people who've had a major i nfl uence on my life. Parents, pas­ tors and professors play the d o m i na nt roles. One of those characters - and I don't use that term loosely - is Cl iff Rowe, PLU Com m u nication Arts professor. Cliff's voice comments that my writi ng i s too pedantic, or that I w o u l d have checked the spe l l i ng of someone's na me. Thank God, at least h e doesn't tell m e to eat more peas. For the last seve ral weeks, h owever, he hasn't been sitt i ng i n the back of my head. He's been sitting at a desk down the hall from my office at Ogi l vy & Mather. I g rad uated from PLU i n 1981 with a what-ki nd-of-job-do-you-thi n k-you're-going­ to-get-with-that English degree. I beca me a journal ist. Cl iff's i n f l u ence exp l o ited m y existing i deal ist i c notion o f writi ng for a l iving. Need ing a new c h a l l enge, I joi ned Ogilvy & Mather as an account manager i n 1987. W e do pu b l ic relations a nd advertis­ ing. Some people would call me a liar for hire. It's not true. But people have their opinions. Although the real C l iff wou l d n 't have said so, the Cliff Voice in the back of my head chided that I was n o l onger serving the publ ic's right to know. That voice told me I was a r u n n i n g dog lackey c h u rn i ng out propaganda that helps l i ne the coffers of exploitative corporate m oguls. The real Cliff Rowe, however, has been sitting in the office down the hall, learn i ng about what ad vertisi ng a n d p u b l i c rela­ tions people really do. He recog nized that his 20-plus years of experience as a jou rnal­ ist l eft h i m less t h a n prepared to tra i n WOUld-be com m u nicators who want t o go into advertising, public relations or m arket­ i ng - and the n u m ber who do is i ncreas­ ing. It was last winter when Cl iff and I fi rst started tal king about an i nternship i n our office. Cliff's i nsatiable d es i re for profes­ sional growth is one of t h e t h i ngs that makes him a n outstand i ng teacher. Work­ ing with my bosses Andy Hopson and Jim McFarland to arra nge Cl iff's internship, I wanted to gi ve h i m an opport u n ity to grow, just as he did for me as a student. It was a lesson for both of us in teaching and learning. Teachers can't just tea ch; and students can't just lea rn.

In a world that changes as fast as ours does, we a l l need to be both teachers and students. We need to teach what we know; and keep learn ing what we don't. If I were to have a p l ace i n the back of Cl iff's m i nd as he does i n m i ne, or i n a ny­ one else's m i nd, I hope my voice would say keep you r eyes and ea rs a n d m i nd wide open; keep growing, keep lea r n i n g from everyone and everyt h i ng. And offer back as m uch as you receive. And I hope it would say "You don't have to eat you r peas if you don't want to."

cou ld see Kath lee n com i ng m y way, copy i n hand, a smi l e on her face, and I knew i mmediately I had done somet h i ng either very clever or very stupid. It was the latter. "This name is M-A-T-T-R-A-N, not M-O," ch uckle, c h uckle. There I was, i m pa led, squirming on a spelling error, and not just a spell i ng error, but an error i n a person's name, the kind of error that I th rust at students when I return their papers in a News Reporting class. "You just can't make t h ese kinds of errors," I tell them. "With every error l i ke this your credibility SUffers." Now, Kathleen was delighting in poi nting out that s h e had preserved what l ittle cred i b i l ity I sti l l had. I was pleased that she was delighted, despite having to swallow some ego. She was doing exactly what I would hope students out of Com m u nication Arts clas­ ses at PLU would be d o i ng - editing and writing with skill, precision, and, m ost of all, conviction. I trust most of them are doing that. and feedback from their employers usually confi rms it. But it has been rare that I've had a n opportu n ity to see for myself a graduate in the workplace over a period of time. That opport u n ity came this past s u m­ mer when I was a b le to work out an arrangement with Ogi lvy & MatherlWest. a major public relations agency in Seattle, to

Clifford Rowe be an observer i n t h e i r offices for fou r weeks. In effect, I was on a fou r-week i nternship. While I was there mostly to talk with peo­ ple a bout their jobs and h ow they got them and what they li ked and d i dn't l i ke about them, I also d i d some writ i ng and i nterviewing. We tel l our students they need to have internships l i ke this to find out what the workplace is really ·like a nd to determine whether a career i n any g i ven com m unica­ tions field is the one for them. I'd always assumed that this advice, l i ke the other advice we dispense at the drop of the sl ightest opportunity, is correct. It was a rel i ef to find out it is. This was a fa r different workplace than I had experienced i n 20 years of working for newspapers. I had expected that. Wou ld I be happy i n this busi ness, as opposed to the news busi ness that I l ove? I n some ways I WOUld. In other ways I'm not so sure , b u t at l east n ow I'm better a b l e to talk knowledgeably about it. I do know that by the time I left Ogilvy & Mather I was able to assure Kat hleen that if I had ever begrudged her leaving journal­ ism for public relations (a nd I don't think I rea lly di d), I no longer do. Much of what the people there d o, from top ma nagement on down, is exciting and innovative. The deadline pressures are d ifferent. but as demand i ng as those i n the news busi­ ness, and there are other demands i n deal- , ing with their cl ients - those third parties in the com m u nication process - with which journalists don't have to deal. Finally, I found as m uch satisfaction and sense of accomplishment a m ong this staff i n what it was achieving as I would find i n a newsroom . Kathleen i s right. Teachers have t o learn as wel l as teach, and Kathleen, as a former stu dent. proved to be a good teacher, too. And I wou ld never tel l her to eat her peas - u nless I were in public relations and my client was the National Pea-Harvest i ng Council. •

After 20 years of teac h i ng the­ ater a n d d i recti ng m a i nstage p roductions, professor W i l l iam Parker remembers the students above all. " By fa r, t h e st u d ents h a ve made my 2 0 years at P L U a rewa rd ing experience," Pa rker sa id. " T h e re have been so m e i m p ressi ve su ccess sto ries stu­ dents have shared with Parker and his fellow PLU theater d i rec­ tor W i l l i am Becva r. Stu de nts such as Patty Ben Peterson (who recently took over the l ead i n the B roadway h i t " I nto T h e Woods") provide a reaffi rm ation of the qual ity of PLU's theater department and the p rofessors who guide it" said School of the Arts Dean Richard Moe. Parke r tell s of a stud ent per­ fo rm i n g w i t h t h e A l a b a m a Sha kespea re Festival a n d o ne who is an assistant producer i n New York. S tudent Scott G reene received the Los Angel es Dra ma­ logue award fo r "most p rom is­ i ng d i rector. " Other students Parker remem­ bers I nclude the count less stu­ dent who a re bu i l d i ng ca reers in theater. as well as those who are pursu i n g oth er fields. " t is my goal to see students mature throug h an u ndersta nd­ ing of themselves, a responsi bili­ ty 0 others and respect for the i nd i vid u a l ity a nd worth of a l l people," Parker sa id. Teach i ng took on a n added dimen Sion recently when Parker decided to write a play. "When I searched wi t hi n myself to write my play. I found new avenues to explore with my stu dents . We l earned a lot together," Pa rker sa id. After seeing his work come to life and experiencing "the rligh­ est h i gh i m a g i nable in my 3 5 yea rs i n th eate r," Parker plans

to continue writing plays for the rest of his ca reer. His newest play u ndergirds his cont i n u i ng concern for students: it speaks of fa mily relationships i n t h e age of AIDS . "Even the most i ntel l i gent yo u n g person feels that he is i m m o rtal, that tragedy can not touch h i m . " I f my stu dents rea l i ze that what they do or do not do now may affect them for the rest of t h e i r l ives. that each person is responsible for not just his own behavior and health, but that of others. I wi" feel that my play is a su ccess - critics or not," Park­ er said . As J o h n i n "J ust As We A re" says, "We must wo rk together to save o u r c h i l d re n , a" o u r beautifu l children."

The State of the U n i versity, 1 9 89 : To Co m p lete a Centu ry Excerpts from an A ddress to Faculty and A dministrators at the Faculty Fall Conference, Sept. 8, 1989 .


oget h e r we envision o u r entry in to a new academic year. The months ahead consti­ tute the 1 00th of this i nst itu­ tion, the 30th of the u n iversity, and the 1 5th of this president. The 1 00th year of the institu­ tion! While the year beyond the one we now enter will be excit­ in g for its commem oration of the Centennial, the 1 989/90 year will have its own g reat exc ite­ ment and i m portance. The theme "To Comp lete a Century" is both an awesome ch allenge and a g reat opport u n i ty for those who care for, and labor in, th is institution as it writes "fi nis" to the tenth decade of its life. To c o m p l ete a cent u ry req ui res at least some deg ree of overall or com prehensive under­ sta nding about the present day Pacific Lutheran University from each of us. Perhaps that necessi­ ty will speak as compell ingly to you as it does to me if I share the fact that fu l ly 6 2 % of the cu rrent faculty and even more of the adm i n istrators, have joined the un iversity since I was appoi nted . These l a rge maj ori­ ties of relatively new faculty and admin istrators hel ped cau se, although they may be unawa re of it, im portant yea r to year g rowth and sign ificant accom­ plish ments. It is both im portant and useful to observe that. even in the yea r j u st past. many records were establ ished and oth er existing ones were sur­ passed.

majority of fou r-year post-sec­ ondary sc hools in o u r state which can claim none at all. The records of academic ga in by facu lty cont i n u e w ith books and articles p u b l ished, gran ts and contracts won, conferences attended, and papers presented. The School of Physical Education won approva l for the g ranting of th ree separate baccalaureate deg rees and produced its fi rst graduates. Also, Physical Educa­ tion provided opportu n ities for 20% of the u n iversity's fu l l-time enrol lm ent i n 22 women's and men's varsity sports. There were 62 student ath letes with a g.p.a. of 3.5 or better, and 20 Academic All Americans who hel ped win the fo u rth strai ght conference al l-sports trophy, two national c h a m p i o n s h i ps , a n d , a m o n g more than 500 NAIA schools, the second consecutive national All Sports title. In late June PLU was notified officia l ly that u n ivers ity-wi d e accred itati on had been reaf­ fi rmed by the Comm ission on Colleges of the Northwest Asso. ciation of Schools and Colleges. No strings, no qualifications, no caveats - simply reaffi rmation of accre d i tation by the one extern al body most i m p ortant to the u n iversity's recog n ition and fu nction. Two other im portant acc red i­ tation decisions were an nou nced t h i s sum mer: 1 ) programs i n music have been elevated from associate to fu ll membership i n t h e National Assoc iation of Schools of M u s ic; a n d 2) the bachelor of science program i n computer science won fi rst-time approval as one of only 80 such prog ra ms n a t i o n a l l y to be

fi nd i ngs of the u n i ve rsi ty's external fi nancial auditors, on a $43,281 ,366 budget. the univer­ sity fi nished $5,900 or 0.01 % in the black. It is not so much what is earned that determi nes fi nan­ cial outcomes - PLU receives nearly 60% more i ncome than it did five years ago - rather it's what is spent that matters. Beca use the u n i versity has grown and flou rished ra pidly in many areas, i ncluding financially, the challenge of the futu re is to ch oose wisely and selectively a m o n g the m a n y w i n s o m e opportun ities that are ou rs. Nei­ ther we nor any other organiza­ tion can invest fully in all paths simultaneously. The heady scent of past prog ram matic, numeri­ ca l. fisca l and physical accom­ plishment lu res, even compe ls, us to the m istaken indu lgence of all desi res concomitantly. O u rs is the responsi b i l ity to prioritize and selectively develop th ose p rograms which wil l guara ntee our future success. This we can, must, and will do. Money matters a re never com­ pletely discharged until we also speak of g ifts given a n d funds raised. F u l ly $1 m i ll ion more in cash was received this last year than in the year before. The total from all sou rces and for all purposes am ou nted to $ 5 . 7 m i l­ li on, representing a strong 21 % growth rate - a rate more than twice the growth rate of tuition in 1 988/89. Excluded were pledg­ es made, w i l l s wr itte n , and deferred gifts prom ised.

Funding and erecting the new music building remains the major object ive on the ca pital side of the d rive, and prog ress toward it acc elerates monthly. A few comments now about annual reports which I conti nue to a p p reci ate read i ng from a l l organ izational u n its in the u n i­ versity. I have previously alluded to the academic productiv ity t h ose from the schools, d ivi­ sions, and various programs doc­ um ent. There has been no previ­ ous year in my reading when records have been stronger or accompl ish ments mo re varied. Among those providing a sign ifi· cant and different contri bution is the Fa m i ly and Children's Cen­ ter where 1 65 students worked for academic credit in eight dif­ ferent programs and simu lta­ neously delivered social and edu­ cati o n a l service to 981 P a rklandlSpanaway fam i l ies. So much has occu rred that some academic departments note the strain. One chair even speaks of exhaustion, and proclaims that the exhaustion cannot continue. The very next sentence of the report, however, stresses equ ally that the future has never looked brighter. So it is with the general tone of all reports - prog ress is g reat. effort is exte nsive and demanding, but comm itment to subsequent en deavor is the g reatest. T h i s e n co u ra g i n g theme i s parall eled by re ports from admin istrative a reas where p rog ress and reco m m itment are a lso the overriding themes. J ust a few specifics may be of i nter­ est. Food Service reports the best year ever; the Bookstore enhanced sales, its gross margi n, and continued to exceed nation­ a l averages i n its p roductiv ity per square foot of space occu­ p ied. Of great im portance in this day of i ncreasing ap preh ension about cri me, vi olence, and per­ sonal safety, are the facts that Cam pus Safety has added the fo u rth profess i o n a l , i s better staffed than ever, and experi­ enced a ten-year low in the num­ ber of camp u s cri mes wh ich were re porta ble to the Pierce

cou nty Sheriff last year. The safety issue, h owever, is one that demands eternal vigilance, and it will be so treated in the year ahead . To com p lete a century, and to erve in that or so me other fash­ ion in the futu re, req u i res us now to turn to a report on the fourth and - mathematical log­ ic not withstand ing - final year of the cu rre nt u n iversity F ive­ Yea r Plan. Prepa rati on of the plan involved the ent i re un iversi­ ty in an effort to determ ine and chart its futu re; that exercise a lone has more than suffici ent redeem ing value for the plan. A su rprisingly large n u m ber of the specific objectives with i n its five major priorities have, in fact, been atta ined. M ost i m portant­ ly, the u n iversity has rem ai n ed and prospered as a small l i beral a rts i nstitution of the church ( Priority I), and it will continue to do so. E n ro l l ment goals, fiscal priorities, severa l capital pro­ j ects, e d u ca t i o n a l e n h a n ce­ ments, com m u n ity outreach, a n d o t h e r obj ect i ves were reached a n d exceeded . O ne maj o r a cco m p l ishm ent which was faci l itated by previous p lan­ n ing, but not specifically envi­ sioned i n the cu rrent fi ve-year o bject i ves, is the ra p i d and extensive growth of the u niver­ sity's Comp uter Center, includ­ i n g present i n itiati ves to i n co r­ porate co mputing broadly i nto the curriculum. M ost s i g n ificant p e r h a ps amon g five-yea r goals was the accomplishment in four years of the five-yea r intent (Priority II, 5) . to enha nce average total com­ pensation by an amount at least 1 5 % in excess of the cumulative i ncrease over t ime i n the Con­ sumer Price In dex. All will appre­ ciate that since sala ries and fringes annually amou nt to the largest sin gle university expendi­ ture - about 60% of the total budget - they are the hardest to improve overall. Yet the goal has been reached one year early, and every effort will be made to carry o n enha ncement in the futu re. Also of significant note, and expense, was not j ust the com­ pletion of most of the specific capital projects identified in Pri­ ority IV, but also adding to this p rio rity the a n n u a l extensive renovation of at least one resi­ dence h a l l . Pfl ueger, Foss, and, as of t h i s s u m mer, H i nderlie H a l l s h a v e now been so i m proved . I ndeed, the sum mer of 1 989 wit nessed renovat ion and repai r in mu ltiple academic, administrative, student, and ser­ vice b u i l d i n gs. Of various bu il d­ i ngs acq u i red, one fi ne example is the Rosso House which now provid es the head quarters for graduate and continuing educa. tion. Now it is time to prepare the next chart for o u r fu t u re. Althou gh a variety of elements of the 1 98 5/86 five-year map

Whatever my feeli ngs about the specific value of the content of any plan may be, there i s no denying that great gain is to be realized from the process of t h i nking, d iscussing, and working together toward t h e goa l s of t o m orrow.

L the refore, officially invite faculty and admin i strators to consider methods and join the process. University officers have already been charged and students will soon be i nvited so that as a total commu nity we may look to the next five-year cycle. The writing of a new Five-Year Plan w i l l engage us meaningfu l ly as we com p lete a cent u ry in 1 989/90, but so, too, w i l l several specific en deavors. The faculty mandated study of the universi­ . ty's general education req u i re­ ments - core revision, if you w i l l - merits the attention of us all. Viewed by its external constitu­ ents, PLU now clearly 1s a presti­ gious institution. Yet, costs and com petition being what they are, questions always arise con­ cerning why is the university better than cheaper priced alter­ natives, or how is it really worth the i nvestment of student and fa m i ly dollars? More this yea r ••

Gifts from all sources amounted to 55. 7 mil­ lion, a 2 1 % in crease over the previous year and more than twice the growth rate of tuition costs_ H than previously, these queries were voiced d u ring the annual August meetings i n ni ne North­ west cities which Mrs. Rieke and I hold with parents, and new and prospective stude nts. By d i rect perso nal interaction with more than 600 such persons, i ncluding over 1 00 incoming fres h m en, I was persuaded that the un iversi­ ty's constituents accept the fact that PLU has excellence, but as never previously, they want evi­ dence that experiences here are d ist inctive, a n d have sufficient value for life that they merit the req u i site expense and financial comm itment. These concerns a re not surprisi ng, because the severa l increases in recent years of the cost of attending almost all private postsecondary educa­ t i o n a l i n st itutions have out­ stripped not just the growth in the Consu mer Price I ndex, but more im porta ntly, the agg re­ gate i n c rease i n tot a l fa m i ly in come.

tin ues over time, people under­ standably need reason to believe mon ies spent on education are wisely used . While a new, excit­ i n g , a n d effective p l a n of req u i red study at PLU - be it a revision of Core L Core II, or both - is not the tota l answer to i ncreasingly sophisticated and aware consumers, it can be one very important element of the response. More than th at, the u n i versity needs a ret h i n k ing and res h a p i n g of its general requirements Simply to be true to its own i n tegrity and sense of ed ucati onal mission, deserv ing our close attention and best effort. The penulti mate specific topic I mention as we begin to com­ plete a century is the b ranch ca m p u s of the U n i versity of Washington in Tacoma. Through much state legi slative ma neu­ vering and u ncertai nty about which I reported periodically last year, the com m itment to estab­ l ish branch campuses of the Uni­ versity of Washington i n Bothell and Tacoma, and of Washi ngton State University in Spokane, the Tri-Cities, and Vancouver eventu­ ally was made. With regard to the branch in Tacoma, the selection of a site will occu r this year, some faculty will be recruited, and a few score of t h i rd and fou rth yea r st u­ dents following a baccalau reate program i n general studies w i l l b e adm itted for work starting one year from now. The i ntent both of the legislature and the Un iversity of Washi ngton is slow­ ly to develop e n ro l l m e nt of up per d ivision primari ly non-tra­ d i tional, pa rt-time stu d ents to ni ght and weekend classes, and to add more cou rses of st u dy only as need can be shown. The legislature has ordered a st udy of exist i n g educati o n a l capacity in both state and pri- · vate schools. PLU is actively par­ ticipating i n th is, ' and the f i nd­ ings will be reviewed in the 1 990 legislative sessi on. I believe PLU ca n and should remain confident a n d u n t h reatened by the branch. More i m portant by far than my opin ion, however, is the

varied career at the U of W, Uni­ versity of Iowa, and U niversity of Kansas medica l centers as wel l as PLU. The award was established to recognize a l u m n i who by their professional ach ievements and contri butions have disti ngu ished themselves, enhanced thei r pro­ feSSion, improved the welfare of the general public and brou ght honor to their alma mater. The award refl ects cont ributions made over a long period of ime.

fact that because of the consid· erable effort invested in the last two years, we are firmly in a position not only to monitor but to correct any shifts in ma rket share of students in the unlikely event they occur as the branch develops. Fift h, l ast, and most happi ly, we will spend the year complet­ i n g ou r centu ry by ed ucati ng another excel lent group of stu­ dents. While demographic limita­ tions w i l l decrease the n u m ber of freshmen who matricu late, the class will exceed 600 and will be larger than the one we were pleased to admit j ust four years ago. Moreover, the n u m ber of transfer st udents re mains high and retention of continuing stu­ dents s i m i l arly cli ngs to record levels. In total, headcount and hours will again be very strong, and this i s without acceedi ng to the very rea l pressure to increase international stu dents d ramati­ cally. Residence halls will be full, and planning for a new hal l for the fa l l of 1 9 91 conti n ues.

Alma M ater

Gift, I ncome,

By Dr. Philip Nordquist centennial Historian

Du ri ng its nea rly one hu ndred years of h istory, the students and a l u m n i of Pacific Lutheran University have sung a nu mber of co l l ege h y m n s and fight songs. They all reflect the times when the y were written a n d most reek with considerable sen­ timent. Most have also had a very short shelf- l ife; one has been bu ried i n the A rch ives since the early twentieth ce ntu­ ry. I fou d five such songs while conducting research for the cen­ tennial history. All can be found in the U n i v ersity A rc h i ves, though the mu sic fo r two has d isappea red . Only one of the songs, the 1 944 "College Hymn" co m posed by Ju leen H . Mattern, is re g u l a rly s u ng . " Re g u l a rly" here means once a year, usual l y at Homecoming. Most mem bers of the Alumni Association could not pass a written test on the words or music, however. The first of the songs - "Our Alma Mater" - dates back to 1 902 and must have been sung at comme ncernent. Its th emes are the "fond memories" and "true friendsh ips" fou n d at the "P.LA" There is no mu sic to be found and the song was appar­ ently quickly forgotte n. The next song - "The A l m a Mater Song" - has had a longer life. Com posed by Choir of the West di rector J. O. Edwards i n 1 9 27 i t can sometimes sti l l be heard.

Sc hn acken berg, converted it i nto, "P LC, O u r Students H a i l Thee a s Queen of a l l the Land!" Both words and mu sic are avail­ able in the Archives. T h e sem i- offi c i a l "Co l l e ge Hymn" was written by J u leen H . Mattern i n 1 944. Schnackenberg ca l led it a hymn of "dign ified solemn ity" and Mattern dedicat­ ed it "with best wishes to Pacific Lutheran Col l ege, 'The Pioneer School'." It is not at all clear how it became "semi-officiaL" but it has acquired that kind of status, perhaps through longevity. The fou rth song - "The Glad Refrain" - was written by Wai­ ter Sc h n acke n b e rg h i m s elf, probably i n 1 95 5 . H e was i nter­ ested in a song with a little more oomph that was more widely known, so he o rg a n i zed a con­ test wh ere stu dents were to contri bute either the words or the tune and connect to either the words or the tune he creat­ ed. The read e r senses that I d o n 't have t h i s a b sol utely straight; neither can I remember the stu d ent w i n n e r and the tune is lost. I remember the bass part and my wife claims she can hum the tune. The words a re written in pencil on a 3" X 5" card which is in my possess ion. Readers will re mem ber that P. L.Cs teams were called Gladia­ tors in 1 9 55, hence the title. The fi nal song - "PLU V ictory Song" - was written in 1 988 by

This defi n itely 15 a "win-Win" situ at ion. In the last few months there have been n u m e rou s instances where donors to PLU have made a contri b ut ion t h rough a l i fe i ncome program . In d o i n g 50, they wi l l be receiving an income for l ife, a d, at the same ti me, receiving si gnificant tax savings as wel l . I n ad d ition, thei r heirs will not be losin g any of the asset value The q u estion m y be asked, but i they give the asset away, how can they pass the value of that asset on to their heirs? Answer: through i nsu rance. And how does one pay for the insu r­ ance? Answer: th rough the dol· lars saved from the ch aritable contribut io n ded u cti on, as well as through possible i ncreased income from the asset. The use of a "wealth replace­ ment trust," funded with insur­ ance, i s a method by which many people are able to make a sign ificant gi ft to P U , recei ve l ifetime i ncome, and st i l l have the abil ity to pass the value of an asset on to their heirs.

KUpp Aerials Key TO 35-1 9 Defeat Of Loggers By Mike Larson

PLU used its patented Big Play in a big way i n its 1 989 season­ opener agai nst cross-town riva l Puget Sound Sept. 1 4, t u r n i ng back the Loggers 35-1 9 in the An n u a l Lu tes/Logg ers Tacoma Dome Duel. Coach Frosty Westering's 1 0th­ ranked Lutes converted two Log­ ger fum bles i nto scores, used a brillia nt aerial attack, and made the big defensive plays to claim their fifth Tacoma Dome victory in the seven-yea r history of the series. PLU wasted l ittle time. In fact, any of the 7,425 fans in atten­ da n ce who s h owed up m o re than 1 5 m i n utes late m issed half of PLU's fi rst-h a lf sco ring. With 9:36 to play i n the fi rst quarter, ' PLU a l rea dy enj oyed a 1 4-0 advantage, scoring on a 34-yard pass play from sen i o r q u a rter­ back Craig Ku p p t o se n i o r end John G radwo h l and a 1 4-ya rd ·ru n by j u n Io r fu l l b ack C h ri s Havel. Kupp hooked u p with j u n ior end M i ke Wel k on a 48-yard scor­ i ng bomb on the fi rst of the second quarter to ca p a seven­ play, 84-yard d rive, then rushed for a touchdown from 18 yards out to make it 28-7. Kupp's rush was set up after j u n ior l i neback­ er Bruce Sch m idt fel l on a fum­ ble deep in Logger territory. "We executed very wel l, partic­ u l a rly o u r pass i n g ga me," said Westering on the season-open­ i ng win, PLU's 1 7th in the last 20 seasons. "Ou r two ends, G rad­ wohl and (Mike) Welk were just outstanding and our blocking u p front gave Ku p p the t i m e he needed ."

PLU fans love their Lutes!

Indeed . Kupp was magn ificent, completing his fi rst nine passes and fi n i shing 1 8-for-22 for 203 ya rds and th ree TDs. The 6-4, 2 1 5-po u n d K u p p a l so h a d 2 9 ya rds rus h i ng, i n c l u d i n g his 1 8yard scoring scramble. The Lutes' final score was the resu lt of PLU's most sustai ned d rive of the even i ng, a 66-yard m a rch in 1 1 p l ays t h a t con­ sumed nea rly six min utes. Havel did most of the work, carrying

five t i m es for 42 ya rds. K u p p found Welk a l l a lone i n t h e end­ zone from 14 yards out with 30 seconds to p l a y in t h e t h i rd quarter to make it 3 5-1 3 and the rout was on. Lute d efensive coord i nator Pau l Hoseth applauded the PLU's defensive effort. "Genera l ly, it was a good performa nce," he said. "We had a few breakdowns, but overa ll, we had good p u rsuit and good h itting."

The Lutes' 1 989 home sched­ u le is the best in years, includ i ng dates with O regon Tech (Sept. 30), Central Washi ngton (Oct. 7, 1 : 30), Li nfield (Oct. 2 1 , 1 : 30) and Western Washi ngton (Oct. 28, 1 : 30). PLU's h o m e g a m e s a re played at Carl Spa rks Stad i u m in Puya l l u p. All of the Lutes' games can be hea rd l ive on KJ UN-AM 1 450 with J ohn Lynch ca l l i ng the play-by-play.

Book-end TEs M i ke Welk (j r., 6-0, 205) and John G radwoh l (j r., 6-0, 1 97) a re both qual ity r-eceiv­ ers. Welk snared a schoo l- record 62 passes as a freshma n and 29 last season .

Westeri ng's Big Ti me Ph i losophy Topic Of Book The Big Time. For m a ny people, the p h rase conjures up th i ngs like name rec­ ognition, big bucks, celebrity sta­ tus. PLU's Frosty Westering ki nd­ ly d i sagrees and h e's written a book to explain why. Make The Big Time Where You Are, written last winter d u ri n g a

three-month sabbatical, puts on paper m a ny of the ideals that Westeri ng has taught and prac­ ticed. "The Big Time is not a place, it's a state of you r heart," he said. "The Big T i m e isn't som ething you get, it's some­ thing you become," he said. Weste ri ng, the w i n n i n gest active NAIA Division II coach i n the nation and a ful l professor with a d octorate i n ed u cation, said the book is written in a con­ versa ional style, accented with stones and a necdotes from h i s 24-year coaching career. "The writing part is finished," said Westering. "They (the pub­ l ishers) are editing a few chap­ ters and working on the g raph­ ics."

VOLLEYBALL - Coach M a rcene Sul livan's Lady Lutes now know what it takes . . . After struggling through 1 0, 1 0, and 1 1 -win seasons for th ree years, PLU made all the puzzle pieces fit i n last year's 2 3-1 7 campaign and a re ready in 1 989 to prove it wasn't a fl u ke . . .

It's even more d ifficult when you graduate half you r team, but that's the task that faces B rad Moo re's 1 989 off-road contingent as they lose six of their top ten runners from last year's squad that was eighth at nationals . . . Senior Ken Gard ner is the one top-six retu rnee, but will get su pport from returnees Kirk Helzer, Alan H err, Mike Lindaas, Marty Gibson, and Matt Knox . . . Pepperdine transfer Jeff Perry and Tim Borsheim will factor i nto the scheme of things right away. WOMEN"S SOCCER - It m ight be unfai r to expect back-to-back national championships, but if you're i nto wageri ng, bet the barn that PLU's success story will conti nue in 1 989 . . .

A variety of factors plucked seven retu rnees, but a sol i d - yet u ntested - corps of developmental players a re back and a blue-chip crop of fresh � an. . . . Senior Mike Caldwell and newcomer Vidar Plaszko head the m idfield troops, while Jim Tem ple anchors the defense . . . C h ris Steffy, who registered 1 0 shutouts last year, is a dandy keeper.

WOMEN"S CROSS COUNTRY - It's been a decade of domi nance at the d i strict, a rea a n d national levels for coach B rad Moore's harriers and the 1 989 season appears no different than the fi rst n i ne of the 1 980s . . . Defending NAIA champion PLU will be led by a pair of returning All-Americans, jun iors Kelly Edgerton and Gwen Hund ley, and a strong supporting cast . . . Also keep an eye on senior M a ry Lewis, sophs Shannon Smi ley and Deird re M u rnane, and j u nior Karen Tuvey . . . freshmen Casi M ontoya and twins Ki rstena and Gretchen Sm ith bolster Moore's 1 989 squad, along with Green R iver CC transfer Kelly Hewitt.

President's Message On the following pages the annual chron­ icle of people and funds supporting Pacific Lutheran University during the 1988/89 year is presented. The president's message provides a special opportunity both to express gratitude to the ever growing number of individuals, firms, and organizations that assist the univer­ sity and to lift up those things which seem most significant as meriting such support during the year past. How grateful I truly am to the record number of people and groups for the largest ever gifts to Pacific Lutheran University during 1988/89! If one con­ siders only cash actually received (not including gift pledges, annuities, trusts or other deferred gifts), more than $5 million came to the university last year. To be sure, that sum represents contri­ butions from donors of aU types and given for every kind of purpose, but it reflects a magnificent milestone in the history of PLU. Most importantly, such gifts come from people who believe that the kind of education offered at PLU is worthy of support. This is certainly a most compelling reason to be grateful. Because of such strong support the university was able to continue to pursue and strengthen its commitment to quality education. For example, a record number of three (more than any other northwest college or university) Fulbright Scholars were named during the last year. In addition, PLU graduates attained top state or national honors in mathematics, engineering, accounting, journalism, athletics, and other fields. Also record setting was the fact that a PLU alumna (Elizabeth Pulliam, '85) became the first graduate to receive a Pulitzer Prize. To such singular accomplishments must be added the facts that credit hour produc­ tivity for the year topped all previous levels, and the number of baccalaureate and masters' degrees awarded came close to one thousand total. Certainly the support of investors produced great gain during 1988/89.

Investors need to know that, while the university became stronger, set new records, and was more productive last year, it also remained entirely faithful to its mission. It is of paramount importance to me that as the univer­ sity grows and advances, the connec­ tion to its heritage and the under­ standing of its central purpose are retained. For this reason I am especially gratified to report to those who have invested in PLU the past year that the mission of the university - as judged by those charged with the responsibility of assessing it is alive and well. Specifically, during 1988/89 the university underwent its decennial evaluation for institution wide re-affirmation of accreditation by the Commission on Colleges of the North­ west Association of Schools and Colleges. In addition to resulting in complete re-accreditation, this study provided the following comments by external evaluators on the university's sense of mission: ''Pacific Lutheran University is clear, consistent, and realistic in its state­ ment of mission and objectives. Efforts to make the institutional mission and objectives operative in the day-to-day life of the campus are evident and admirable." With the mission of PLU recognized and commended in this manner, I am greatly encouraged and emboldened for the future. Clearly the investments made serve a productive and meaningful purpose. Heartiest thanks to our investors for their great assistance and partnership in 1988/89.


Pliny the Younger, the Roman writer and statesman who lived from circa 62 to 113 A.D. was the first chtdJenge gift donor on record. At least so the story goes . . . 'CJ>iscwering that the children in his native town of Como had to go to school in Milan because Como had no teacherfor them, Pliny put up a third of the expenses of hiring an instructor, encouraging his felloW townsmen to raise the rest. "

This booklet is largely a listing of names. Names of persons, organizations and foundations who, like Pliny, have set the pace by their leadership. Because of these generous people many students were able to attend Pacific Lutheran University through scholarship awards; faculty and staff salaries were enhanced; special programs were made possible and building and grounds were improved.




This year, the last in PLU's first century, the University broke the $5 million mark in gifts received. Named in this Report to Investors, are individuals, churches, corporations, and foundations who con足 tributed an all-time record $5,1 34,891.32 during the 88/89 fiscal year. In addition to this gift figure PLU received grants and contracts totaling $572,595.61.

Because of the leadership and example of many alumni and friends, more donors than ever contributed to the Annual Fund. For example, a year ago there were 2642 alumni donors to the Annual Fund, this year 4197 alumni contributed. The increases have been more than just noteworthy - even something to celebrate. Gifts from all sources this year totaled 18% more than last year and 47% more than two years ago. And so we celebrate. We celebrate the leadership and example of friends and alumni. We celebrate . . . yesterday with our founders who gave us our roots . . . today with our regents, faculty, students and alumni who infuse us with life and vitality . . . tomorrow with the friends of the University who dare to make our dreams become a reality.

It is those friends and alumni who are shaping tomorrow. Through their leader足 ship and generosity, they have made the Sharing in Strength campaign, the first phase of a decade-long funding effort, a success. They will also now ensure the second phase of the centennial campaign, Shaping Tomorrow. The goal for the first half of the decade was $16,500, 000. It was over subscribed with $20,000, 000 coming through Sharing in Strength. Those funds built the Rieke Science Center, doubled the endowment, provided scholarships and completed many capital improvements on the campus. In the second half of this decade the Centennial Fund - Shaping Tomorrow, will build the Music/Fine Arts Center, double the endowment again, provide increased help to underwrite tuition and provide funds for other capital improve足 ments. The challenging goal for the current campaign is $30,000, 000.

It promises to be a centennial decade of $50,000,000 in gifts for the education of a new generation. A great host of people who believe in the value of Pacific Lutheran University and its mission will help us meet the challenge of this exciting century celebration. Sincerely,

Luther W. Bekemeier

Vice President for Development

TheAnnual Fund Gifts to the University' s Annual Fund provide vital support to every area of the instit tion. Scholarships, fac ulty salaries, library resources, and facilities maintenance represent some f the more significant areas where Annual Fund gifts are put to use. This support provides the "margin of excellence" that helps set Paci.£ic Lutheran University apart. Taken together with other income sources, Annual Fund gifts subsidize the cost of education by approxi ­ mately $600 a year for each student who attends the University. The positi ve impact of Annual Fund support is felt by students in three key areas:


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

Outstanding Faculty

A strong Annual Fund helps assure tha t faculty salaries remain competi­ tive. PLU has been fo rtunate to attract and retain highly qualified fac ulty who are dedicated to teaching.

Library Resources

Nearly $600,000 was spent last year to keep the Mortvedt Li b rary 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, enhance scholarships and financial aid, and operate with a balanced budget. While many of the gifts to the Annual Fund are mall, as the llumber of th�se gifts increase , the part icipation of many alumni and friends makes a positive impression on other potential supporters of the University. But small gifts alone cannot d 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 u nrestricted a nd/or scholarship gifts to the Annual Fund reach $240 or more per year.

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, University'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. To help accomplish these goals, members commit themselves to a specific amount of support each year. There are four primary giving levels: Member $240/year Associate Fellow $480/year Fellow $l,OOO/year Senior Fellow $2,4oo/year

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

NOTE: Alumni and friends age 26 and under may join the Q Club as Junior Members for $120/year or $lO/month.

The Q Club began with 100 members who contributed $51,000 in 1 972. Today, there are over 1775 members who gave over $840,000 to the University during the past fiscal year.

University has affected my life in a very p* found way. I had a chana to question the things I was raised to believe, and wound up naffirming those beliefs from the penpective ofa newly found intellectual maturity. At PLU one finds diversity, a caring and warm environment, a rmtalized wmmit颅 ment to Christianity, and excellmt acadnnic standards. ))

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 and 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. $2,400 or more a year

Many congregations elect to give for the benefit of particular students. Gifts to the Pacific Lutheran University Match­ ing 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 Scholarship Fund. Through these growing designated and undesignated gifts, congregations play a significant role in annual support of the University and scholarships for individual students.

Businesses and Foundations 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 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 University as well. These gifts help fund capital construction projects, provide for the purchase of significant capital equip­ ment needs, and add to the University's endowment. The construction of a new

"The growing generosity of Pacific Lutheran University alumni represents a tremendous witness to major donors and foundations about the true value ofyour PLU education. )) This past year I had the opportunity to share my thoughts with you about the kind of impression which schools like PLU make on their alumni. I want to thank you for the overwhelming response that you made to that appeal. The number of alumni who contributed to the University's Annual Fund increased nearly 59% during this past fiscal year. There were 4,195 Alumni Annual Fund donors in 1 988/89 versus 2,642 in 1987/88. As a result of that increase, PLU's percentage of alumni giving rose from 16% to 23% in a single year. That kind of growth is simply unpreceden ted. One of the strongest gains came from alumni who made their first gift to the University this year. I want to thank those donors for the vote of confidence that their support signifies and welcome them to the growing ranks of alumni donors listed in this report. Your generosity allows the University to provide vitally needed scholarship support for students. It also strengthens our ability to attract and retain quality faculty who are at the heart of the educa­ tional enterprise. Other gifts provide funds to buy books for the library and other important learning resources.

Taken together, your gifts to the Annual Fund underwrite the educational mission of the University in a tangible way that makes a positive difference in the lives of everyone at the school.

As the University approaches its Centennial in 1990/91, the growing level of alumni support during the past year offers the promise of even greater things to come. Sincerely,

� c 7?� David C. Wold,

Chainnan, PLU Board of Regents

When students talk about Pacific Lutheran Univenity, there are many themes, but three are oft-repeated: , * Academic quality and creativity, rejkaed in a wealth ofnationally­ recognized aauiemic hotwrs;


An atmosphere of friendliness and genuine personal concern

fur students;

and * A commitment to Christian principles.


Alumni Annual Fund Honor Rnll ofDonors by Class Annual Fund gifts from Pacific Lutheran University alumni undergird and enhance the quality of the educational programs which the University offers. These contri­ butions help with everything from scholar­ ships to faculty salaries and library books to athletics. This past fiscal year produced the largest single year increase in both the number and percentage of alumni giving in the University's history. The number of Alumni Annual Fund Donors grew from . 2,642 to 4,195 - an increase of nearly 59%. The percentage of alumni giving also increased from 16.1 to 23.1 - a jump of over 43%. This special Honor Roll of Donors recognizes the many alumni who have made this a record-breaking year for the Alumni Annual Fund.

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 k now 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 25% by the University's centennial in 1990/91.

Although the number of alumni contributors is an important factor in influencing others, clearly the dollar total given by alumni is what helps today's students. Over the years, alumni who are able to make contributions at or above the Q Club level of $240 a year have accounted for around 75% of all alumni giving. The following lists recognize Alumni Annual Fund Donors by class for gifts received between June 1, 1988 and May 31, 1989. Where two alumni are married, the asterick (*) indicates that their gifts have been split between their respective classes. A "Q" in front of a name indicates that the individual is a current member of the PLU Q Club.

The Heritage Society The purposes of the Heritage Society are:

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.

- 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 i n their on-going estate planning. - To encourage others to become members of the Society.

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 planning.

In conjunction with Edgerton's add ress, they i ntend to publ ish a collection of short essays written by PlU a l u m n i , stude nts and faculty as well as i nterested com m u ni­ ty members, that reflects on the lea rning of values at PlU.

Edgerton u rges w riters to " reflect on the ideals that PLU holds u p t o i t s students, and n o t o n ly t h e ideals consciously upheld , but the ideals i m pl icit in the way the faculty and others i n the PlU com munity live and work." More particu larly, Edgerton asks essay­ ists to consider: * Not only what the faculty do but what facu lty are. Kenneth Eble has written of the u rgent need for students to encou n­ ter not merely men and women of special­ ized com petence, but men and women of character. Do PLU stu dents see facu lty outside the classroom? Do they know what other roles faculty play? For exam ple, fac­ u lty who value com m u n ity and public ser­ vice wou ld do well to share their own com­ m u n ity and public service l ives with their students. * H ow the scientific method that u nder­ p i ns most of o u r acad e m i c l ife d etached, a n a lytical, objectivist, etc. itself shapes the values of o u r students. Are there other m ethods of knowing that students should a lso lea r n to val u e? If socia l scientists "model" o n ly detached, social criticism, where will students lea rn the va lues of affirmation a n d p a rtici pa­ tion? * The va lues-shaping effects, not only of what we teach (a topic that gets an inord i­ nate amou nt of attention), but how we teach. For how we teach is what we teach. Some have poi nted out, for example, that while we "preach" cooperation, our meth­ ods of i nstructing and grading, fac u lty eva luation, etc., "model" the i m portance

Editor's note. Ch ristian L ucky, one of PL U's 1989 Fulbrigh t Scholars, was studying in West Berlin when the Berlin Wall was opened Nov. 9. During those first heady days he stayed up virtually around the clock, soaking up history in the making and sharing his expertise with Puget Sound area media. The following are his reflections on the momen tous event.

By Christian LUCky '89


t the end of the Fi rst World War, many p eo p l e l o o k ed w i t h a n t i c i p a t i o n toward the poss i b i l ity of a peaceful a n d open E u rope. This vision was partially real­ ized d u r i n g the 1 920's. Cit ies such as Pra g u e and Berl i n reveled in thei r n ew democratic freedom and became centers of modern culture, seldom si nce rivaled. But, after the terror and i n h u man ity of the Second World War, and the di shonesty and di vision of the Cold War, the idea of peace and open ness has been more of a bi tte r j oke to the citizens of Berl i n a nd Prague than an actual possi bil ity - u ntil a few weeks ago. Revol utions usually ha ve at l east two thi ngs in com mon: vi olence and ideology. While l iving in Berli n these last few months and watch i n g the tremendous cha nges that are ta king p lace, most st riking to me has been the absence of both violence and gran d i ose ideology.

The demands made are concrete and simple: the free­ dom to travel, the d i g n ity to l ive without the fear of torture, the freedom to write what is thought and to read what is writ­ ten, and to gather and to meet openly. In a city that has itself become a sym bol and has long been subject to propaganda from right and left, the citizens of East Berl i n and Prague a re avo i d i n g e m pty r h etoric, a nd are instead see k i n g i m m ediate a n d . tang ible change.

Among 24 com para ble northwest a n d Lutheran col leges and u n i versities, P L U is the only regional u niversity to be listed i n a l l four of the magazi ne's biennial repo rts: 1 983, 1 985, 1 987 and 1 989. The Evergreen State Col lege in Olympia, Wash., is the only reg ional l i beral arts college to receive fou r ra nkings. This year's listings appea red in the maga­ zi ne's Oct. 1 6, 1 989, issue. PLU placed 1 4th among reg ional col leges a nd u niversities in the west.

Audience With King Olav v Of Norway A Highlight Of Rie'ke Journey By Jim Frazee


ot many Americans have the opportu­ nity for a p rivate a u dience with King Olav V of Norway. Not many Norwegians wou ld believe an America n if told of such a meeting. That was the case with PLU Presi dent W i l l iam O. Rieke in Oslo i n October d u ring his d rive into town from the a i rport. Ti red, unsure of the date after a hect ic trip that began i n Tokyo, and j u st having flown across Siberia, Rieke related to a ca b d river his appointment with the King. The d river, skeptical of his passenger, spent the entire trip to an Oslo hotel elaborati ng his doubt, and Rieke was u nable to convi nce h i m . vi nce h i m . Rieke ca me t o Oslo, a s he h a s fou r t i mes si nce 1 9 76, to renew acq u a i nta nces a n d re-em phasize contacts between PLU a n d Norway. His five-day visit n o t o n l y took h i m to meet t h e King, but also t h e A merica n Ambassador, the University of Oslo Rector, the Norway/American Association, and the Norway PLU A l u m n i Chapter. "We wa nted to i n vite the King to the PLU centen nial celebration in May 1 990," Rieke sa id, after his m eeti ng. "Of cou rse, he cou ldn't com mit just yet, but he was very receptive to the offe r. It was a n

extraord inary and positive t h i n g t o meet . h i m ." Rieke a lso p resented the K i n g , who is 86-yea rs-ol d , with a photo a l b u m of the Ki ng's visit to the u n iversity in 1 975. Dur­ ing their brief meeti ng, they spoke of the growth of the u n iversity si nce its fou nd i ng in 1 890 by Bj ug Harstad and that over 1 00 Norweg ians have gradu ated from PLU just i n the past decade. Ri eke reiterated t h e i nst itution's v a r i o u s orig ins a n d t ies and exchanges. He even got a chance to pitch PLU's Department of M u sic as a possi ble campus desti nation for Martha Lou ise, the King's g randdau ghter, who has a n interest i n singing. "You n ever know u n l ess you try," Rieke sa id. PLU's centennial was also the central top­ ic of conversation with the newly-a ppoi nt­ ed American A m b a ssa d o r, Loret M i l l e r R u p pe. App rised of PLU/N orway ti es, she said she wou ld help p romote the event in N o rway. She a l so offered the offi c i a l a m bassa d o r's res i d e n ce for a possi b l e reception a s part of t h e worl dwide celebra­ tion Oct. 1 5, 1 990 when a l u m n i chapters in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Oslo, and the u.s. will celebrate.

The an nou ncement was made by Dag Mork-U l nes, Norweg i a n consu l general i n San Francisco. The honor was established by H is Majes­ ty in J u ne 1 985. Accord ing to its statutes, the Order is conferred upon fo reign citi­ zens in recog nition of particu l a rly m eritori-

Specific plans wi l l b e made when it is known whether mem­ bers of the Roya l Fa m i ly will attend the ca mpus celebration.

Retu rn i ng TO His Roots

Dr. Robert Wills

Pro vost Began Career A t Church-Related, Liberal Arts Colleges By Jim peterson n one sense Dr. Robert Wil ls, PLU's pro­ vost si nce J u ly, has retu r n ed to his roots. H is u ndergraduate yea rs a n d fi rst n i ne years as an educator were spent on small, l i beral a rts, c h u rch-affi l i ated col l ege cam­ puses. After a 1 7-year i nterlude, he has returned to that envi ronment. Wills earned his bachelor's deg ree at the College of Wooster, a 1 , 200-student Pres­ byterian school in O h io, i n 1 962. H is fi rst teac h i n g posi t i o n was at Witten berg, a Lutheran i nstitution in Spri ngfield, Ohio. "After n i ne years at Wittenberg, a l l my experience had been at small l i beral arts colleges," he reca lls. "I wa nted to see what a l a rger p rogram wou l d be l i ke . " So he accepted a posit i o n at the U niversity of Kentucky i n Lex i ngton. N i ne more years later, seeking a n other chal lenge, he m oved on to the even larger U n iversity of Texas at Aust i n . At each stop his career i nterests broad­ ened . At Wittenberg, where he began as a theatre i nstructor, he became di rector of theatre. At Kentucky he began as theatre arts depart m e nt cha i r a n d beca me dean of the College of Fine A rts. At Texas, he held a si milar post i n a la rger progra m . O n each campus, however, he sti l l taught. The next logical step was to b r i n g his skills to an even b roader acad e m i c p ro­ gram. At the same t i m e h is i nterest i n the s m a l l cam pus, l i be r a l a rts setti n g was bei n g renewed. "I was t h i n k i ng about a ca m p us s m a l l e n o u g h f o r serious e m p h asis on facu lty teach i ng responsi b i l ities, but large enough to s u p port a n d e ncou rage the facu lty research strengths vital to teach i n g excel­ lence," Wills said.


He was not actively see k i ng a cha nge, but he was nom i nated for the PLU provost position, and PLU fit the defi niti o n of the kind of opportun ity he had been contem­ plating. PLU's l ocation, w h i le not a "decid­ i ng" factor, was not a d rawback; h is wife, Barbara Salisbury Wills, is from Seattle and holds a Ph.D. from the U niversity of Wash­ ington. "This was a real surpr ise; I never expec­ ted to ret u r n (to the Pacific Northwest) so q u i c k l y , " s a i d D r . B a r b a ra W i l l s. "I a m delighted . " T h e W i l ls' have been ma rried for five years. They worked together as col leagues in the Col lege of Fine Arts at Texas, where she was an assoc iate professor of drama.' "We shared many i nterests," she reca ll­ ed. " I admi red his flexibil ity and leaders h i p style. Particu l arly, I coul d n 't h e l p but b e impressed b y h is attitude toward women." The son of a Presbyterian m i n ister, Wills consi dered the m i n i stry as a ca ree r through his undergraduate years at Woos­ ter while he was majoring, fi rst i n voice, then i n theatre and speech. In fact, during h i s sen i o r yea r he a p p l ied for gra nts to support his gradu ate work at either a sem­ i nary or the U n i versity of I l l i n o i s t h eatre prog ram . He was offered both; when the time came to make the decision, he chose theatre. Reg a rd i n g t h at c h o i ce, W j l l s Ili kes to q u ote N ew York L i v i n g T h eatre founder Julian Beck, who once said, " I chose the­ atre rather t h a n the synagogue because I bel i eved my chances of salvation were greater there." But the concerns that contributed to his thoughts about the m i nistry also affected his theatre p u rsu its. He had been act i ng and singing since an early age, b ut he had no i ncli nation toward professional theatre. "Rather," he sa i d , "I see t h eatre as a means of changing people's l ives, of touch-

ing people - both audience and actors to make a difference i n how they l ive." Dr. Richard Moe, dean of PLU's School of t h e Arts, met W i l ls several years ago "when I was a neophyte member" of the I nternational Council of Fine Arts Deans. "I was struck by t h i s i m p ressive dean who was obviously a leader i n this august grou p," sa i d Moe. "He was warm and cor­ d i a l to me - a person he had n 't met before a nd about whom he knew noth­ i ng." He conti nued, "It was a joyous and seren­ d i pitous s u r p r. ise w h e n I lear ned he was being considered for our provost position. Not only did I have g reat respect for him personally, it is hig hly u n usual for an aca­ demic CEO to come out of the arts." It seems natu ra l for a former theatre professional l i ke W i l ls, who has written 1 0 produced performa nce pieces and di rect­ ed 90 p lays, to com ment that he is " role­ oriented" rather than "goal-oriented ." Nev­ ertheless he i ntrod uced th ree broad goals to the PLU faculty at thei r September fa l l conference: * "Growth toward even greater academ­ i c exce l l e nce, t h o u g h we are b u i l d i ng on considerable strength; * "I ncreasing d iversity - particula rly as that relates to women a nd eth nic mi nori ­ ties - i n a n effort to make t h e u n i versity more s i m i l a r to the world in which it exists; and * "Increasing structure and form; many of the systems that help ma nage t h i ngs su rvive from much ea rlier days and don't serve the contem pora ry u niversity as well as they cou ld." Rather than i m posing his w i l l from the top, W i l ls wants to know what others want

Endangered Species, Economics Topics Of New Faculty Books Two new books by PLU faculty members reached the bookstores i n late October. They are Wild Echoes: Encoun ters with the Most Endangered Species in North America by English Professor Charles Berg­ man, and Economics: Principles, Problems and Policies ( 1 1 th edition) by Econom ics

Bergman and B rue a re a mong t h e more than 50 publ ished authors on the PLU fac­ ulty. All were honored this past month at a reception hosted by the PLU bookstore. Bergman's book is a feisty, lea rned look at America's dead and dying a n i mal spe­ cies. It asserts t hat a n i mals "are only partly biological creatu res. They a re also sym bols i n which we ca n read who we a re." The concern, of cou rse, is that these sym bols - and t h u s o u r p o te n t i a l fo r self­ understanding - a re ra pidly va nishing.

While previous editions have been ava il­ able in C a n a d i a n , Aust ra l ian a n d I n d i a n adaptations, t h e 1 1 t h edition will a lso be publ ished in Russi a n .

Change is good; it is the only way i nstitutions ca n stay healthy." W i l l s co n t i n ued, "The general c u l t u re here is the kind of culture I enjoy. There is a capa b i l ity a n d a wi l l i n gness to cha nge. That fits my own i nclination to be discon­ tented at any given moment, know i ng that the best is yet to come." He beli eves that PLU's cu rrent cu rricu­ l u m study "is one of the most i mportant thi ngs going on at the moment. "It is a painfu l , torturous p rocess, decid­ ing what the most i m portant elements i n a h igher education really a re," he sa id. "It w i l l be i nt erest ing to see the res u l ts in a nother yea r or so." The res u l ts a re expected t o g u i d e the academ i c l ife of the u n i ve rsity i nto the 2 1 st centu ry and perhaps beyond . "PLU is an institution where I can, and do, enjoy working," W i l ls observed. "It val­ ues people above all else. The val ues of the institution a re va l u es I ca n su pport and encou rage.

Refl ections On Wild Echoes By Charles Bergman

I have a fantasy: I i magine myself sitting in my living room, on my sofa . O utside my house - outside our house - the a n imals a re gathering. Lost a n i mals, e n d a ngered a n i mals. M u rm u ri ng in wild echoes. It's a strange fee l i ng, knowi ng the a n i ­ mals a re n e a r , even as we t h i n k we've distanced ou rselves from them. They give me the se nse that t h e re's m o re to l ife t h a n I have known before - t h e sense that these animals know t h ings we don't know. This book is my attem pt to u nderstand, i n both soc i a l and person a l terms, t h e mea n i ngs o f the p henomenon o f e n d a n­ gered species. The prem ise is that a n i m als a re only partly biological creatu res. They a re also symbols in which we can read who we are. Drawing u pon l iterature and art, modern philosophers and ancient natural­ ists, explorers and biologists, I try to u n der­ stand what ani mals mean to humans, and the sign ificance of thei r loss in this age of mass exti nction, which we have caused .

species only as l a rge a n d g l obal issues. They a re, fi n a l ly, p rofo u n d l y personal i n thei r impl ications. In a landscape increas­ i ngly defi ned by a bsence, where a n i ma ls come to us out of a g rowing void, I get close to som e of the rarest animals on the conti nent, t rying to red iscover and feel thei r presence. I am helicoptered to a wolf den in t h e re mote mou nta ins of Alaska, and t rack down a rctic wol ves near the North Pole. I sta nd in a cage with the last su rviving d usky seaside spa rrow, i n Disney World, Florida - it d ied shortly after my visit and the race is now extinct. I search for bl ack-footed ferrets in the western p ra i ries - extremely rare theM, a n d no longer in the wild. They now l ive in cages, where they a re being captive bred, thei r babies born i n boxes. I fly with Ca lifornia condors up the G rapevine when t h ere were only six of these vultures left in the wild. Now condors too a re gone: They have all been captu red and live i n zoos. I follow West Indian manatees scarred by the pro­ pellors of motor boats. Tree a Florida pan­ ther deep i n a swa mp. Look for right wha les in the N o rth A t l a n t i c . S p l ash

t h rough a Lou i s i a n a swa m p after ivory­ bi lled wood peckers, one of the most myth­ ic of ou r native birds. Woven i nto these na rratives is the a rgu­ ment that ou r cu rrent attem pts to save e n d a n ge red species a re, i n a ny l a rger sense, doomed to fa i l u re, sad rearg u a rd batt les. They ca n't solve t h e p roblems, because they stem from the same mentali­ ty, the same posture toward natu re, that caused the problems i n the fi rst place, and ca n be s u m m a rized i n the a rrogant con­ cept of stewa rdsh ip. I try to reth i n k why so many endangered species defeat o u r , best effo rts on t h e i r beha lf, and what these creatu res' l ives say about us. I argue that endangered species represent a para­ dox: though they a re t h e res u l t of o u r l o n g obsession w i t h power over natu re, t hey em body the l i m its of t hat powe r. They a re a m i rror, not of our stu n n i ng trium phs over nature but of ou r fa ilu res. In the context of these broken creatu res, wh ich a re i ronica l ly more a part of cu ltu re than of natu re, my intent t h roughout the book is to t ry to re-create a n i mals, by learning to rei magine them and our world.

Mud On The Leaves

A Time of Antici pation

By Harvey J. Neufeld Vice President , Church Relations

By John D . Aakre Executive Director of the Annual Fund

By the time you read t h is col· umn, mos of the maple leaves on ca m p u s wi l l be gone, They have long resisted the energetic clean-up of our groundskeepers, Some were blown away. Others were swept away, raked away, p icked up or su cked u p , In a word, they were attacked, p l un­ d e red, m u lched, b u rned or stac k ed on th e compost h ea p with fervent environmental zest H owever, s o m e l ea ves st i l l rem a i ned . I celebrate t h e victory of one leaf, caked with mud, p u m m eled by ti res and feet, pelted with ra i n . I t defies all modes of destruction and now rests safely on my desk. Even by itself, it is stra ngely bea ut i fu l w i t h i ts blotched ru sset su rfa ce not unl ike a martian l a ndscape. It is a reminder of t h e golden carpet of warm October days. It tells us about the cycles of l ife, the com­ ings and goi ngs of a l l t h i n gs w h i c h b e l o n g to t h e nat u ra l order. Natu re not only ca resses and i nspires us, but buffets us as wel l. The order of t h i ngs is what we rage against Days move on. N ights too. The fam i ly moves on.

Children, too. Life moves on and claims the weak and the old and the sick among us. But one leaf at least su rvives and m u d or n ot. declares t h e beauty o f l ife, the ruggedness of every part of God's creation Not ju st leaves, but h u ma n s also endu re. Some o f those spe­ cial persons a n d d i st i n g u ished col leagues - in the autumn of theIr years - were guests at the PLU p resident·s C h ristmas tea party. I was t h ere t h i s yea r to hel p greet persons. It is a grand occasion. Some of these fol ks shuffle a n d shake. Some wobble a n d qu ake. Some stand tall. One is i n a wheel chair. All conve rse with enthusiasm . They d ress roya lly and eat heart­ ily. They end u re with dlg nity. In a word t h ey a re bea utifu l a n d their dign i ty transfo rms every­ one whose life they touch. As I store my golden, i m per­ fect and muddied leaf between the pages of Malachai and Mat­ thew for fu t u re i n s p i ration, I al so store i n my memory t h e bea u ty o f P L U ' s friends. T h e i r im perfections make t h e m a l l the more endea ring.

The Ch ristmas season is a time of antici pation. Ch ristmas l ights go u p on the house. C h i l d ren begin to d ream a bout the pre­ sents t h ey h o p e to recei ve u nder the tree. Advent wreaths a re lit and the cand les cou nt down the weeks until Christmas day. When t hat day arrives we cele­ b rate the g reatest gift of a l l The Ch rist child i n a m a nger i n B et h le h e m . A s w e reflect o n God's gift to us, we understand the powerfu l i m agery at work d u ri n g t h i s season w h e n we share our own gifts with others. You r Q C l u b g i ft s t o Pacifi c Lutheran U n iversity t h i s Ch rist­ mas represent a marvelous pre· sent to our students. These gifts provide them with the opport u n ity to m a ke t h e most o f the many talents the Lord has given them. The majori· ty of those students don't know too m uch about t h e Q Club. But perhaps that's not very i m por· tanto What they do know is that someone cares. T h a n k you for being the kind of peo ple who give to others.

December is a time of a ntici pa­ tion for the Q Clu b too. Over a q u a rter of a l l Q C l u b gifts are received i n the month of Decem· ber That means we can't relax just because we a re a l ittle a h ead of last year's tota ls th roug h Novem ber. H ow many of you respond during the next few weeks w i l l d eter m i ne h ow many PLU Students we can help i n the year a head . So we wait. and antici pate. During the early years of the Q C l u b's existence we d id n't top the 5200,000 m a rk i n a n n u a l gifts until 1 977. This year m ore than t h a t wi l l be rece ived i n Jecem ber a l one. Total Q C l u b gifts s i n ce 1 9 7 2 w i l l e xceed 57.75 mil lion by the end of the month . Yet in order to help the many students who need finan· cial assistance today, the Q C l u b mu st ra ise 5 1 ,000,000 or more each year by 1 99 1 . So we are torn between two p o l es. We need to celeb rate o u r su ccess and antici pate what it will take to conti nue that success i n the years ahead.

The Joy Of G ivi ng By Ed Larson Director of Planned Giving

Giving a gift of charity was always the farth est t h i ng from Joe's m i nd (J oe is not h is real nameD. J oe was one of t h ose persons about whom everyone who knew h i m sa id, "He sti l l has the fi rst dollar he ever had!" Joe even adm its to t h i s day that at one time he hated the idea of giving anything away. One day a few years ago a rep­ resentative from PLU met with Joe. The pu rpose of the meeting was to tell J oe about PLU about the U n iversity's m ission and goals. And - to ask Joe if he would consider a g ift to PLU . At first J oe questioned the idea of making any kind of gift to the University, but for some reason, to make a long story short, Joe

relented and made that first gift (a smal l giftD. L i t t l e by l i t t l e Joe's g i fts i ncreased in a m o u n t and fre­ qu ency. To t h i s day, he rea l ly isn't su re j u st why t h i s is t h e case. But o n e t h i ng is su re, a n d Joe is qu ick to t e l l t h i s to any­ one, somewhere along the way Joe began to feel somet h i ng special. There was a "joy of giv­ ing." Each of us has the potential to experience this "joy of giving!" It begins with one's first g ift and g rows with every su bsequent gift . The fee l i ng is u ndeniable. F i n d someone who knows h ow to make a gift and you will fi nd someone who knows the "joy of giving."

Pride I n PLU By Jame-s Hushagen '70 PreSident, Alumni ASsociation

June - Camirillo-Thousand Oaks, calif.

Alumni and friends gathered to honor former PLU faculty and staff l iving in the area, including Pa ul and Marjorie Reigstad, John and Ruth Kuethe and Li nka Preus Johnson . Ph i l i p Nordqu ist. PLU's Centennial h istorian, was t h e featu red speaker. The h ost was Jon Olson '62. Forty-th ree people attended,

JUne - San Diego, Calif.

Pride has had a checkered h is­ tory The early c hu rc h fat h e rs listed pride as one of the "seven deadly sins," right down t here with l ust greed, avari ce, envy, gluttony and slot h . The New Tes­ tamen Inveighed against pride, equating i t wit h arrogance and haughti ness. Recently, h owever, pride has made a comeback. Self-estee m p rog ra ms u rge c h i l d ren to be p roud of themselves and t heir accompl ish ments, Ou r political leaders u rge us to be proud of our cou ntry and, o u r com m u ni­ ties. EveryonE:, it seems, is u rged to be proud of somet h i ng. As PLU a l u m n i , we certa i n ly can take p ride i n PLU and its ach i evements. M a n y n a t i o n a l p u b l i cations, i n c l u d i n g m ost recently u.s. News and World Report, have consistently rated PLU as one of America's best u ni­ versities, PLU's enteri n g fresh­ men rate in the top 1 0% of all entering fresh m e n based o n average SAT scores. PLU's record of 1 8 F u l b right sch o l a rs i n t he past 1 4 years, includ i ng t h ree in 1 989, is extraordinary and p rob­ ably un matched by a ny s i m i l a r institution. PLU a lso consistently gets m o re t h a n its s h a re of Nation a l M e r i t Sc h o l a rs and recently enrol led its second Pres­ idential Scholar. The University's successes are not all in academ i cs, h owever. The su ccess of PLU's ath letic teams is wel l known, with honors too numerous to relate, i nclud­ ing t h e women's soccer team's unprecedented second consecu­ tive national cha mpionsh i p . The Un iversi ty's m u sical g ro u ps, including the Choir of the West, are n a t i o n a l l y k n ow n a n d acclai med.

J u st as t h e a l u m n i can b e proud of PLU, so also c a n PLU b e p r o u d o f i t s a l u m n i . Some 25,000 strong, PLU alumni have d isti n g u i sh ed t h emsel ves i n every facet o f American l ife. To name j st a few, consider the work of W i l l iam Foege ('57) i n erad icating small pox; Duane Ber­ entson ('51 ) in creating Washing­ ton's com mercial i nfrastruct u re as t h e Di rector of Transporta­ tion, and of Judit h Billi ngs ('6 1 ) i n i m p roving t h e ed ucation of Was h i ngton's c h i l d re n as t he Su peri ntendent of Public Instruc­ tion. N u m e rous other PLU a l u m n i a re having a profound effect o n society a s educators, health care professionals, m i n isters, busi ness l eaders and citizens, O u r world would be different, and p robably a l ittle worse, but for PLU and its alumni. While PLU and its a l u m n i can certainly be proud of each oth­ er, neither can be compl acent. The futu re is perilous, PLU's financial strength does not cur­ rently e q u a l i t s a ca d e m i c strengt h . T h e m a rket for t h e best a n d t he b rightest students and fac u l ty is g rowi ng i n c reas­ ingly com pet i ive PLU's cont i n­ ued g rowth in Q ality requ i res a great deal of work and su bstan­ tial su pport from PLU's a l u m n i and friends. PLU is a place of which a l u m n i can b e justifiably p roud. P L U i s a winner, and we can be p roud to support a winner. As PLU heads i nto its cente n n i a l year, t h e Alumni Association takes contin­ ued p ride i n PLU's acco m pl ish­ ments and dedicates itself to making PLU an even better place in its second centu ry.

The com m u n ity outreach pro­ gram that visits the ea st-side Tacoma schools celebrated its 1 0th anniversary i n 1 989. What began i n 1 980 out of necessity with 1 6 players has evolved i nto somewhat of a PLU Football tra­ dition. This year, 90 players a n d 1 2 cheerleaders fou nd their way to Lister a n d Mcllvaigh on Fri­ days before home ga mes. It's a su ccess story, i n deed, b u t i t hasn't always been t h a t way. "The principal (at Lister at the ti me), Da ryl Ashpole, and I were sitting and d ri n k i n g coffee one afte rnoon, lamenting over the fact that there weren't enough role models, parti cula rly m a l es, for these kids," recal led Tacoma School District social worker Ted Joh n stone, the prog ram's coor­ dinator. Ash p o l e was aware of t h e image-b u i lding concepts used by Westering and suggested a visit to PL U . "I was fa m i l i a r with Frosty's p rogra m and some of the th ings he believed in," sa id Ashpole. Weste r i n g remem bers t h a t conversation. "We met a n d they

Sixteen p l ayers wo rked with g rades 4-6 the first yea r. The n u mber i ncreased to 28 pl ayers i n the p rog ra m 's seco nd year and th ey e n l a rged the student participation to K-6. Those years were basic in structu re, using handouts, blackboards and play­ ers in front of classrooms.

Ch ristian Wh ite, a sophomore at Lincoln H ig h Schoo l , re mem­ bers well the Lutes/L ions p ro­ g ra m when she attended Lister. She said the players and cheer­ leaders made an im pact. "They a lways told us to say, 'I can and I w i l l ' not ' I can't and I won't.' (Fri day) was a treat for us. Some­ thing we looked forward to," she sa id. Lute q u a rterback and co-cap­ t a i n Craig K u p p a l so felt good about the program. " It's a good cha nce to h e l p kids feel good about themselves. Stressing the posit ive. Finding the positive . . I hope that's what they got out of it. And , it's a two-way deal," he sa id. "You learn how i m por­ tant it is to m a ke ot hers feel good. I had no idea I'd have so much fun." Westering adm its that it is d if­ ficu lt to measu re the effect the program has on the kids, many who com e from u nsta ble fa m i ­ l i es. But, h e doesn't doubt t h e program's worth. "We just throw the rock in the water. How fa r the c i rcles go out, I don't know," said Wester­ i ng. "Some people can't relate to this. They think put-u ps a re l i ke polishing the apple, that you ' re doing it for the wrong reasons. I'm making you feel good so I ' l l get a promotion, rather t h a n a gen u i ne fee l i n g of u nd e rsta n d­ ing that that's how we'll a l l feel better," he said. J i m Funk, father of 1 6-year-old Billie Jo Funk, who attended list­ er d u ring g ra des 4-6, eagerly endo rses the p rog ra m . "That a rea of town is co nsidered by m a ny the d u m p of Taco m a . F rosty a n d t h e p layers ca m e over a n d made t h e kids feel like so mebody cared for them, l i ke they were h u m a n bei ngs," he said. Funk sa id the prog ra m's stabil­ ity is what i m p ressed h i m most. "They have all ki nds of prog ra ms that come in, but none stay," he sa id. "This p rog ra m is sol id. Westering agreed. "The one l i g ht is that we keep com i ng back. We' re t h e re," he sa i d . "That alone enco u rages these kids to give it their best shot. to learn how to rise a bove what you can do," he sa id.

hen you aim you r si ghts h i g h . . . . Nearly two years ago, as plans for the PLU centennial observance were mov­ ing into high gear, the question was pondered, "Who wou ld be a n ideal kickoff key­ note speaker?" The name of fo rmer Presi dent J i m my Carter was offe red . S i nce that t i m e, no one else has been seriously considered. Carter, who received the Al bert Schweit­ zer Awa rd for Humanitarianism in 1 987, is recog n i zed worldwide as a cham pion of human rights and a servant to humanity. PLU is also fortu nate that Distingu ished Alumnus W i l l i a m Foege ' 5 7 is executive d i rector of the Carter Presidential Center at Emory U n iversity in Atlanta, Ga., a n d works closely with the fo rmer p resident. But beca u se of C a rter's worldwide esteem, his time is i n g reat demand, and brea ki ng events often d ictate his sch edule on short notice. For exam ple, he was invito ed by both N icaraguan leader Dan iel Orte· ga and the opposition party to verify the fai rness of elections there in February. He has spent n u m erous h o u rs in meeti ngs with the leaders of virtually every nation in the troubled M ideast. This past year he was President Bush's em issary to Pa nama d u ring that cou ntry's elections and was a mediator between Eth iopian factions that have battled each other for decades. He personally oversees p rog rams at the Carter Center that atte m p t to e radicate disease among children, ma ke ba rren a reas blossom and erect b ridges of understanding between suspicious nations. So sweeping is Carter's p resent i mpact that the respected Economist of London, a n i nternation a l l y c i rc u l ated weekly, calls the p resent time his "second term." Time magaz i n e calls him "our best ex· president." At Scene p resstime, Ca rter had not ruled out an appearance at PLU this spri ng . Nor has a defi n ite commitment been made o r a date set. D r . Foege h a s remai ned encou r­ agi ng, but has explai ned that if Carter can come, it l i kely will be with no more than two or th ree weeks notice. We remain hopeful ... and opti m istic!

"Not only is this generous gift an incredi­ ble boost to the arts at PLU, it is a lso a mag.n ificent statement by these g reat fa m i l ies about t h e i m porta nce of music and the arts in the lives of all of us who live in Tacoma-Pierce Cou nty," Moe said.

When i nformed of the gift, Robbins said "One word seems to appear and reappea � as I try to describe the magnitude of this generous gift: com mun ity. A mem ber of ou r Tacoma com m u n ity has acknowledged and affirmed our gift of music to the com­ munity; in turn, the gift will make possible further enrichment of the cultural l ife of ou r com m u n ity." When Eastvold was b u i lt there were two choi rs, a s m a l l orchestra a n d a concert band.

Centennial Campaign Public Phase Begins nnou ncement of the Russel l-Baker g ift for the new PLU m usic b u i l din g - the Mary Baker Russe l l Mu sic Center - ma rked the kick-off of the public phase of PLU's "Shaping Tomorrow" Centennial Fund cam­ paign. The 530 m i l l ion ca mpaign represents the . second phase of a decade-long, 550 m i l lion effort to un derg i rd the u n i ve rsity finan­ cially for the challenges of its second cen­ tury. Over 5 2 2 . 5 m i l l ion in g i fts have bee n generated toward the phase two goa l . Luth e r Bekemeier, v i ce-pres i d e nt for development, noted that "We are on tar­ get to meet the goals of the ca m paign. The biggest chal lenge i s to com plete the fu nding for the new music b u il d i n g . " Approximately 5 3 . 5 m il l ion in gifts and pledges have been raised to date toward the projected 55.5 m i l l ion cost of the faci l i­ ty. "As is usually the case i n a la rge cam­ paign, the gifts are not equally distributed in all areas," said Bek€m eier. "As a conse­ quence, so me o bjectives a re ahead of schedule, while others remain chal lenges." While the prima ry focus has been on the music b u i ld i n g in rece nt months, the im pact of the campaign goes far beyond that single project, he indicated. A variety of short · and lon g-ra nge goals a re being financed. The campaign will dou ble the u n i versity's endowment from 55 m i l l ion to 5 1 0 m i l l ion. Endowed fu nds underg i rd PLU's effort to provide st udent sch o l a rship/fi nancial a i d assistance, a n d strengthen the u n i versi­ ty's ability to weather econom ic un certai n­ ty by providing a sta b l e base of a n n u a l incom e. Nearly 52 m i l lion has been rai sed to date, with an additional 5 1 . 7 mill ion comm itted in pledges and irrevoca ble deferred gifts, Bekemeier noted. "It is i m portant that we keep PLU finan­ cially accessible to all students," he sa i d .

Shelley A. Owen of Grah am, Wash., is the scholarsh ip recipient.

Restricted gifts, which f u n d projects specified by the donor, usually provide scholarships. 52.5 m i l l ion was earmarked for enhance­ ment of special projects, such as faculty research and new academic programs. Much of this su pport comes from corpo­ rate, fou ndation and governm ent gifts and g rants. Progress towa rd the la tte r goals is on target to meet or exceed the original goal . Bekemeier stated . Thus the th rust of the ca mpaign wi l l continue to · be concentrated on the mu sic b u i l d i n g and endowment fu nding, he ind icated . The first phase of the ca mpaign, a 520 m i l l ion effort called "Sharing i n Strength," was con du cted between 1 9 80 and 1 9 85.

Accord ing to Kn ets, Latvian students are eager to participate "to learn more about business, pa rticula rly as it relates to pro­ duction.

"We have lots of econom ists but few business experts," he sa id,

"Laundry," sai d In d u l i s Abelis . " It is so conven ient. We have wash in g mach ines, but more work is i nvolved ." "Se lection of cou rses," added Igo Cals. "At ou r school everyone studies the same thing." " Lots of fru its," cont ributed E i nars Buks, referring to the b road di splays of fru its and vegetables in ou r su perma rkets. The three Latvians from Riga Polytechnic Institute are a part of the fi rst fed era l ly f u n d ed ex c h a n g e betwee n t h e U n ited States and the th ree Baltic countries. The program is s u p ported by the Samantha Smith Memorial Fund. Fifteen PLU students are studying i n the Baltic cou ntries.

1 4 PLU Professors Receive Regency Adva ncement Awa rds Fou rteen PLU professors are the recipi­ ents of Regency Advancement Awards for 1 990-91 . The awards are research st ipends approved a n n ually by the PLU Board of Regents. Recip ie nts are Ang e l i a Ale xa nder and David Kerk, biology; Steven Ben ham, ea rth sciences; Rita Brock, rel i g i o n ; Ch ristopher Browning, Way ne Carp and Arth ur Martin­ son, h istory; And rew Carey, ed ucation; and Brenda Cochrane, sociology. Also Aud rey Eyler, Engl ish; R ichard K i b­ bey and M a ry Anne Raymond, bUSi ness administrat ion; Richard Sparks, music; and Fred Tobiason, chem istry. Research topics range from the history of adoption in America and Central Ameri­ can economics to DNA in plants and Swed­ ish choral mu sic.

Like many exch ange students, the Latvi­ ans find the com mu nication problem the most frustrating. Their Engl ish is admira­ ble, but it is a British derivation l earned more from reading and writing than con­ versation. Their adjustment to American­ isms is difficult, and t i ring. They relax by conversi n g comforta bly among themselves a nd watc h i n g televi­ sion, which gives them visual relationships to the words they are hearing. Most of the exchange students are a bit older than their A m e rican cl assm ates. Buks, for exa mple, is 25. Cals is 24; Abelis is 23. This semester they are tackl i ng such cou rses as fu ndam entals of busi ness, prin­ ciples of ma rketin g, organizationa l cha nge and developm ent, i nte rnat ional econom­ lics, trade and fina nce. Studying keeps them busy, but they are a lso trying to lea rn m o re about Tacoma and Western Was h i ngton. They have been to Seattle and the Space Needle and have "cruised the malls." In fact, shopping has been their most fasci nating pasttime, "At home we have money, but noth ing to buy," sa id Cals.

Like other Soviet states and east E u rope­ an countries, Latvia faces a dau nting chal­ lenge as it struggles to improve its econo­ my . Free enterprise is a desi red goa l . And unless thwarted by the Soviet Union, Lat­ via and its sister Baltic states look forward to both political and eco nomic sovereign­ ty.

But obstacles to such rad ical change are i m mense, Knets pointed out. It has been nea rly a half centu ry si nce the Baltics enjoyed free markets. Few peo p l e th ere understa nd how they work. "During those decades Latvia, once one of Europe's most prosperous states, has become one of its poorest," said Knets. "The exchange program is intended to help reintrod uce market expert i se," he added.

Latvia has several industries that can be developed, he explained. Riga has a non-freezi ng port fac ility through which passes one-fourth of Soviet exports;

Riga has lovely sandy beaches and cou ld be an attractive tourist-resort center; Latvia is a manufactu ring center, taking Soviet raw mate rials and creating fin ished prod ucts for cons u m e r cons u m ption or export; And latvia has good agricultu ral poten­ t i a l . Latv ian land, and i n dustrial fac i l it ies, were tu rned over to the Latv ian govern­ ment by the Soviets Jan. 1 , 1 9 90. The Latvian gove rnment, in turn, plans to turn agricultu ral lands over to private farmers. Continued on page 6

Wa l ki ng the p resent pol itica l tightrope between M oscow and i ndependence is noth i ng new for Latvia. Th rough six centu ries the reg ion was d o m i n ated, fi rst by Germa n crusad ers, then by Swe­ den, Lith uania and Poland. Czar­ ist Russia took control in 1 706. Only from the end of World War I (1 91 9) u nt i l World War I I d i d Latvia enjoy autonomy. A centu ry ago, cultural va ria­ tions in language and d ress were beginning to d isappear from the American scene. Today such variation s, if n ot disappearing, a re dim i n ishing o n global scale. W a l k t h e streets of Riga, Rio or R ichmond - cloth i ng styles will be similar; chances a re that someone nearby will speak Engl ish. Knets is a good example of the new i nternational person. Except for a slight accent, the svelte, d ap per, wel l g roomed Latv i a n ed ucator could m ove comfort­ ab ly, without u nd u e n otice, o n a ny American street. "Cha nge ca n be a d a n gerous thing," said Knets, "but present­ ly we a re asse rt i n g i n depen­ dence without fighti ng, without revo l u t i o n . Today o u r p e o p l e feel free.

"The only t h i ng you hea r is the bad stuff, the d rugs a n d the mu rders," said T raci H a rstad, a freshman from Everett, Wash. "The fi rst couple of days I was sca red . It's not a safe place, but it's not as bad as it sou nds."

"Somehow we have to get the beg i n n i ng fee l i ngs of b e i n g h o m e l ess a n d b roke w i t h no place to go," said Officer. For Officer, the H i l ltop and its people a re no longer a mystery. For the past yea r and a half she has volu nteered with the Associ­ ated M i n istries a n d the M a rt i n Luther K i n g Ecumen ical Center, two o rg a n izations advoca t i n g for the homeless on the H i l ltop. Spu rred by i ncreasing cover­ age of the p l ight of street peo­ ple, Officer collaborated with the Ecumenical Center's d i rector t h is past su m me r a n d fa l l to org a n ize the H i l ltop h a nds-on class d u ri ng the January I nteri m . "The more I read a bout the homeless issue, the more I real­ ized we have to dea l with it, per­ sonally and as a society," Officer said. "Ou r class goal was to try to make one person's l ife a l ittle bit better for a l ittle while." The grou p spent m o rn i n gs painting and wi nterizing several transitional shelters. Afternoons were devoted to lectu res a nd discussion, o r a few hours at a n emergency shelter, d rop-i n cen­ ter or free food p rogra m . They retu rned to cam pus for the eve­ n i ng. "What we did were s m a l l things," Officer sa id. "We're not going to change the H i l l in a week or a year, but if enough of us care we can change ind ividu­ als and the H i l ltop in a small way."

Traci Harstad and David Martin were among the students involved in the Hilltop project. Martin Luther King Ecumenical Center estimated that the project saved them more than $8,000.

PLU-Based program Brings Hope For Better Life TO Adult Non-Readers Ad ults with poor reading skills wi l l have a n opport u n ity for a more i ndependent, p rod u ctive l ife because of a new p rogram based at Pacific Lutheran U niver­ sity. The program will tra i n a Stu­ dent Literacy Corps of PLU stu­ dents to teach a d u lts to read, acco rd i ng to Faye A n d erson, d i rector of the PLU Family and Children's Center. PLU and Tacoma Com m u n ity House a re working cooperatively on the project, which is fu nded by a $49,987 g rant from the u.s. Department of Education. Ca lled Project LERN, the p ro­ g ram will aid 1 2 to 1 5 adu lts per semester - adu lts who presently read, write or com p ute below the eighth g rade level. "Increasing the n u m ber of l it­ erate adu lts i n the com m u n ity will hel p b rea k the cycle of i l l i ter­ acy handed d own from p a rent to child," sa id Anderso n . A t least 45 students w i l l be trai ned each yea r to serve as tutors. "Student horizons w ' il l be expanded as they lea rn to work sensitively with persons who a re educationally and often econom­ ica lly d isadvantaged," she added. Part of the tutors' tra i n i n g will be included i n a u n iversity I l l iter­ acy cou rse, offe red by the Department of Sociology. This

com i ng fall a cou rse i n The I m m i­ grant Experience will be added, with tra i n ing in tutoring of l i m it­ ed Engl ish speakers. Accord i n g to And erson, the F ra n k l i n Pierce Schoo l District w i l l join the effort next yea r, expanding the p rogram i nto ele­ menta ry schools. "By worki ng collaboratively, the th ree i nstitu­ tions w i l l be able to deliver an effective l iteracy prog ram," she said. Taco m a Com m u n ity H ouse began a n a d u l t l iteracy project in 1 986. Although it is located i n downtown Tacoma, h a l f o f its literacy cl ients came from Park­ ' land and South Pierce Cou nty. Su rveys have shown that more than half of Pa rkland residents a re in the lower i ncome brackets and have l i m ited work skills and job opportun ities. Two yea rs ago TCH and the Fam i ly a n d Ch i l d re n ' s Center ag reed to co-sponsor an exten­ sion site for the l iteracy p roject at the Center.

The most recent step toward that goal was taken in Decem ber when Dr. Rieke created the Presi­ dent's Cou ncil for Racial and Eth­ nic Diversity on ca mpus. The Council will play a leader­ s h i p role in m a i ntaining racial and ethnic concerns as a high priority on cam pus. accord ing to Cristina del Rosario, convener of the Council . del Rosario is d i rec­ tor of M ICA ( m i no rity, i nterna­ tional com m uter a n d adu lt) Ser­ vices.

The Cou ncil is the most rece nt in a series of steps u ndertaken in the past year to i m p rove the cam p u s rac i a l a n d e t h n i c cl i­ mate. Significant among those steps was the creation of a 52 00,000 endowed sc holars h i p fu nd for m i no rity busi ness stu dents by Sec u rity Pacific B a n k a n d a 5 5 0.000 u n i v ersity fu nd e a r­ m a rked for m i nor ity sch o l a r­ ships.

T u m b l i n g i nto the b l ack hole of welfare is easy. C l i mbing out is l ike using nail scissors to slash through the Amazon. One day you ' re a mom with two kids, two big monthly pay­ ments - house and ca r - and a h u sband who earns a steady wage. The next you' re a lone parent whose h u sband just nev­ er came home from work. You've st i l l got the two kids and the two big b i l ls. But you've got nobody to h e l p ra i se you r children, no job and no ski l l s to get one that w i l l mak e up for the m issing provider. Becom ing a statistic on public assistance ca n happen just that qu ickly. You are now entitled to l ive on $501 a month. About half of poor households i n Wash ington state have o n ly one adult. most often a si ngle woman, accord ing to fi rst-year findings from a five-year Fam i ly In come Study. The study, man­ dated by the 1 987 Leg i slatu re, sh ows that only about 1 5 per­ cent of women on public assis­ tance in the state are married. This trend even has a name: the femin ization of pove rty. Casting off public aid req u i res grit, guts and ga l l . But there are women who have done just that. They escape from a system that some say fosters welfare add icts by giving recip ients a bout h a lf of what they need to get by. Cheryl Sa b i n , 30, of A u b u rn has been slashing about in the welfare system for a long time. But she i s earn i ng her way out through l earni ng. For the past eight years she has been carving out her own future. In Ju ne, she w i l l g r a d u a t e from Pacific Lutheran U niversity with a deg ree in social work. Her i ntro­ duction to the field ca me when she signed up for aid. "I didn't know anyt h i ng a bout welfare. I thoug ht it was to help people get back on their feet," she recal ls. "I fou n d out how wrong I was. It's just the oppo­ site. It's qu icksand, and the more you try to dig out the more you . sink. "As I tried to find diffe rent ways to su pport myself and get off welfare, I found more obsta­ cles placed in my way. After one year, I knew I couldn't l ive this way." Like many of those in the Fam­ i ly Income Study, Sab i n wanted to work. But she cou ld only get low-paying jobs because of a lack of education and tra i n i ng. A high school degree and a little experi-

ence as a wa i tress w a s n ' t enough to feed a n d clothe her fa m i ly. Regarding col lege, she says, "I decided to go ah ead and do it on my own. I had no help with day care, books, transportation . Friends watched the k i d s . I would have to drop out from time to time." At 18 Sabin became a Centra­ l i a logger's bride. "I was naive," she says. "I had picket-fence syn­ d rome. I thought everyth i n g would work out; we'd ha ve a ni ce l i ttle fa m i l y and work our way u p . "But we worked o u r way down in the world. I was pregnant with Tiffany when we got divorced ." Tiffany is 7 now. And Sabin st i l l rel i es o n A i d for Fa m i l i es with Depe n d e n t Chi ldren, food sta mps and a housing su bsidy to raise Tiffany and her other two c h i l d re n , son J o h n , 1 1 , and daughter Ten iel, 8. But she does not rely on her ex-husband. She pays 5 1 2 2 a m o n t h toward school b y wo rking as a student i n tern with the Fa i r Budget Action Com m ittee, a wel­ ,fare rights advocacy group. Her share of the rent for subsid ized housing is 59 a month. She also gets 5 578 in cash aid and 5208 a month in food sta mps. Sa b i n goes t o college on g ran ts and has student l o a n debt of 51 7,000. Sabin is looking forward to the day her welfare file becomes a historical document. "I hate the food sta mps most of all," she says. "I try to check out without having to stand in l ine. Using food sta m ps is l i ke hanging a sign around my neck that says, ' I'm stu pid: "But I finally see the l ight at the end of the tunnel," she adds as she rolls her eyes and shakes her head. "I want to go on and get my mas­ ter's degree, though, because the pay in social work is so low. I fear I won't be able to pay the rent on a bachelor's degree." It's ironic that someone who has spent the past seven years trying to escape p u b l i c assis­ tance is becoming a profeSSional in the field. But Sabin says she knows the system as only a vet­ eran can. Her goal is to add a l i ttle method to the welfare madness. "When you have to go on wel­ fare, your self-esteem is nil," she points out. "You don't think you can do anything. My goal is to be able to help other people get off welfa re. " Adapted and reprin ted with the permiSSion of the Seattle Post-In te/li­ gencer.

PLU professor's New Book Tackles

Health Care Ethical Issues Can hea lth care be rationed eth ical ly? A new book by Pacific Luther­ an Un iversity p h i losophy profes­ sor Pa u l Menzel tackles a mod­ ern et h i ca l d i l e m m a t h at someti mes seems to defy so l u­ tion: how to ration fi n ite health care eco n o m i c resou rces in a way that w i l l t reat i n d i v i d u a l pati ents w i t h gen u i ne d ig n ity and respect. Somet i m es they wi l l not get everyth i ng t hat will help them - can that be right? The book is Strong Medicine: The Ethical Rationing of Health Care (Oxford University Press). In

it Menzel poi nts out that both sides of the cu rrent conflict p u l l hard o n o u r moral sensitivities, so we may want to comprom ise between them. "Yet we wa nt a true reconcilia­ tion, n ot an u nstable cease-fire or some question-begging 'victo­ ry' for either side," he said. Menzel argues that such a fu n­ damental reconcil iation is possi­ ble. A key factor is inclusion in the decision-m a ki n g p rocess of the peo p l e who end up b e i ng patients. "If people beforehand have consented to certai n pol icies of denying m a rg i n a l p roced u res that m ight have l ater benefited them, those pol icies will have far more a p pe a l t h a n j u st some manager's fascination with effi­ ciency:' M enzel asserted. "If we use our heads and think hard about what ru les we rea lly want to govern our l ives, we w i l l select ively rest rict what we d o t o p romote a n d p reserve l ife and health," he poi nted out. "It wou ld be st rong med ic i n e to swa l l ow, but backed u p by i n d i­ vid u a l s' consent. there is n oth­ ing mora l ly crude, cheap or cal­ lous about it." His book is exhaustive in a na­ lytical deta il. It looks at the basic confl ict from several perspec­ tives a n d exa m i n es the moral legitimacy of their concl usions. It focuses on the problem of put­ t i n g a monetary price on l ife, then discu sses ways to compute

the cost of saving lives a nd to measure qual ity of l ife. Menzel a lso d iscusses effects on specific po pu lations, such as smoke rs, newborns a n d t h e poor, suggests a lternative organ transpla ntation policies, and d is­ cusses the t h reat to effect ive cost containment posed by mal­ practice su its. Final ly, Menzel points out that rationing a l ready exists in the actions of i nsurance companies, legislatures, hospita ls, physicians and i ndividual prem i u m payers. "We need to get on with the p u b l ic busi ness of deter m i n i ng how we should handle all of this ethical ly," he said. Menzel, who has taught at PLU si nce 1 971 , has special ized in t h is and rel ated issues for years. I n addition t o many a rt i cles, h e authored t h e widely recogn i zed

PLU Students Can Ponder Leisure ChOices: Learned Lecturers Or Video Games Last September a PlU admi n is­ trator overheard his son, a cam­ pus fresh man, authoritat ively inform his new roommate that "There's nothing to 'do in Taco­ ma." The adm i n i strator grimaced, ther. explai ned to the young stu­ dents that "not only is there a lot to do i n Tacoma, they wou ldn't even have to l eave campus to find plenty to do lectu res. p lays. concerts. sem i­ nars. exhibits. etcetera." The jury is sti l l out on whether the admonition san k into the minds of teens whose leisure time i maginations perhaps have not often stretched beyond TV. movies and video games. Concerts, plays and exhibitions a re Quite widely recognized on and off campus. Lectu res, how­ ever, u nless t h e speakers are household names. often a re overlooked. Jungkuntz lectu rer Dr. Martin Marty (see article above) is an example of the rich a rray of learned guest speakers who visit PLU each year. For students and campus personnel these en rich­ ment opportun ities are usually free; most p u b l ic adm ission charges are nominal. The J u ngkuntz Lectures h i p is one of th ree major annual lec­ ture events. The Schnackenberg and Hauge Memorial Lectu re­ sh i ps also attract dist i ng u ished speakers. This year's Hauge Lectu res fea­ t u red a uthor M ichael Walzer speaking on "Emergency Et hics: Political and Moral Comm u n ity i n War" i n J an u a ry an d ph i losoph e r Dr. Be rn a rd Goldstein discussing "The Impact of Science o n t he Emergence of Abst ract T h i n k­ ing" in early March.

Harvard p h i l osophy p rofessor

and author Robert Nozick dis­ cussed "The Examined Life" dur­ ing the Schnackenberg Lectu re March 1 . An a n n u a l Presidential Forum in February, funded i n part by a GTE g ra nt, is given sufficient emphasis to have classes can­ ce l led the afternoon of the event. This year's foru m exam­ i ned the topic of "Whistle-Blow­ ing on the Job," and featured a variety of speakers. But these major p rograms only scratch the surface. Janu­ ary and February are particularly rich lectu re m o nths, perhaps s i nce t h ey don't com pete as heavily with outdoor activities. T here is always a long January Interim slate, foll()wed by black h istory and racial aware n ess emphases i n February. Women's h istory is a n a n nual March theme. The 1 990 Inte r i m focused on peace st rategies. S pea kers i n c l uded Tom Witt. national Lutheran Peace Fellowship lead­ er; C hristian peace activist Ann Hall; British geneticist Dr. Lindon Eaves; domestic violence cou n­ selor Jeaneen Watkins; and Jesu­ it priest Father Jack Morris. In addition there were Scandi­ navian speakers ta l k i ng about Ice la n d ic a rt and the V i k i ngs saga . A Norwegian foreign ser­ vice officer discussed Scandina­ via and NATO. In February, students heard a spokesperson for Chinese st u­ dent protestors, Philippine coun­ su i Dr. J ai me Bautista, Was h i ng­ t o n State A f r i c a n - A me r i c a n affai rs executive d irector Ja mes Kelly and Racial Awareness Week speaker V ivian Jenkins Nelsen. "Global Moral ity" was the topic

p resented by U n iversity of Penn­ sylvania anthropologist Dr. Solo­ mon Katz. Colorado Congresswoman Pat Schroeder is tentatively sched­ u led for a March 24 lecture. In addition, PLU p rofessors reg­ u la r ly g ive p u b l i c lect u res. Recent programs featured histo­ rian Christopher B rowning d is­ cussing problems in the Middle East, business professor Thad Barnowe on "Changes Facing China," religion professor Stew­ art Govig d iscussing Australian aborig i na l art, and phi losophy p rofessor Gunnolf Myrbo talking , about Iceland. I nternational st ude nts, stu­ dents who have studied abroad and students with special inter- . ests or experiences also are fea­ tu red on programs. M issing . from t h is l ist are n umerous lectures of limited, b u t spec i a l i nte rest wit h i n schools, d ivisions a n d depart­ ments. Looking ahead to the Centen­ nial year, an uncommon number of featu red speakers, i ncluding Dr. Jonas Salk, have been con­ fi rmed well · i n advance. But it is a lso certain that as the year p rogresses, the nu mber of such distinguished speakers will multi­ ply.

lJJ.;... d.?� Washi ngton State Issues i n H igher Education


President William 0. Rieke

'It is to everyone's interest that cooperation among all of the state 's educational sectors be maintained to save the state money. '

ashi ngton Friends o f H igh­ e r Education (WF H E) i s an orga nization com posed of n i ne i ndependent colleges and u n iver­ sities in the state. Together, the i n d e p e n d e n t sc h oo l s e n ro l l a b o u t 1 9 ,000 u n d e rg ra d u ate residents of Wash i ngton state. The com b i ned enroll ment at the state's five major tax-supported universities is roug h ly fou r ti mes that of the ind ependents. The cost of ed ucat i n g one stu d ent at any of the state's schools, public or independent, is virtual­ ly the same. That cost, for the cu rrent yea r, is a p p roxim ately $1 4,000. In the case of t h e state schools, however, the major cost of education is borne by the tax­ payer. For students who attend the i n dependent schools, the cost is paid by parents a n d stu­ dents - there is n o recourse to state mon ies, i.e., tax doll a rs . These sa m e p a rents a n d stu­ dents a lso pay taxes to support students a t the state schools. If all students at the i ndependents were to be su bsid ized by the state, t h e a n n u a l i n crease in needed tax mon ies wou ld be $1 48,000,000 fo r tu ition a l o ne (1 9,000 x $6,000 i n state su bsi­ dyl. This does not i nclude, of cou rse, the investment of lands and buildi ngs, or combi ned oper­ ating costs of the independent schools. The pri mary pu rpose of Wash­ ington Friends is to effect legis­ l ation which fa i rly considers the needs of the i n dependents. At its a n n u a l meet i n g in Olym p i a (Febru a ry 1 2 - 1 4 , 1 9 90), t h ree major themes were considered : (1 ) further developments related to the state's b ra nch ca mpuses in Wood i n v i l le, Bot h e l l , Yakima, Va ncouver, Tri-Cities, a n d Taco­ ma; (2) the need for cont i n u i n g tax-exempt status for i n depen­ dent schools; and (3) the des i r­ abil ity of increased state-fu nded opport u n ity grants. The H igher Education Coord i­ nating Board (H ECl is part of the state government. Its appoi nted m e m b e rs a re respons i b l e for studyi ng the h igher education needs of the state. U nder its d i rection, demog ra phers h ave conducted resea rch on the n u m­ ber of students w h o m ig h t attend a branch o f a state u ni­ versity were one rea d i l y avail­ able with i n their a rea of employ­ m e n t o r res i d e n ce. T h ese person s o rd i n a ri l y wou l d n ot attend a ny colleg e d u e to d is-

t a n ce o r i n c o n ve n i e n ce i n atte n d i ng, o r i n a b i l ity t o relo­ cate, or because of fa m i ly com­ mitments, or physica l handicaps. They a re termed "place-bou nd" stude nts, and refe r specifica l ly to u pper d ivision and g raduate ca ndidates. The study i n d i cated that i n order t o reach national averages of u p per level st u d ents p e r 1 00,000 wo rking age popu lation, the state wou ld need an a d d i ­ tional n u m ber o f spaces, spaces not ava i l a b l e or p l a n ned fo r i n existing state i nstitutions. F u r­ thermore. stud ies indicated that the d iscip l i nes of g reatest p ro­ jected need were math and sci­ ence, busi ness, a rchitect u re and engi neering, a n d liberal a rts. A parallel study b y the i n de­ pendents i n dicated t h at t h e i r

'If all students at the independents were to be subsidized by the state, the annual increase in needed tax monies would be $ 148 million in tuition alone. ' plans for growth and their com­ b i ned a b i l ity to provide class­ room space a n d i nst ruction i n t h e a reas o f g reatest projected need cou l d meet the des i red national averages. The p rice of tu ition at the i n dependent schools, w i t h o u t aid from t h e state, is often the dete rm i n i n g fa cto r in e n ro l l­ ment. A plan to al low a student to attend the i nst i t u t i o n of choice is the State Opport u n ity G rant, an automatic sti pend of $2 , 500 per Washi ngton state u pper-d ivision resident student to be used at his or her i nstitu­ tion of choice. Expa nsion of this plan wou ld help make available the space a n d facu lty of the i ndependent schools. This would assist i n meet i n g the expected i ncrease of students at a consid­ erable savings to the state. The grant is lim ited in fun d i ng at the present time, but i n the overa ll plans for edu cating the citizens of the state within the most rea­ sonable cost to the taxpayer, the expanded State O pport u n ity G rant has merit. Another concern of WFH E is a chal lenge to the tax-exempt sta­ tus of colleges and u n i versities, hospitals, a n d other p resently

tax-exe m pt charitable i nstitu­ tions. Worki ng t h e i r way through the legislatu re a re p ro­ posa ls to e x p a n d the t a x i n g a uthority o f cities a n d cou nties. These wou l d expose the i nd e­ pendents and other not-for-p rof­ i t entities to tax l ia b i l ities, a n d wou ld jeopa rd ize the fu nction of these orga n izat i o ns which per­ form pu blic services at no cost to the state. While these propos­ als have not attai ned the neces­ sary vote as of this writi ng, they rem a i n defi n ite concerns. The para m o u nt and com pel­ l i ng issue i n h igher education in the state is to encou rage and effect the m ost p rod u ct i ve deg ree of cooperation a m o ng the pu blic and independent i nsti­ tutions. That o u r state is g row­ i n g eco n o m i c a l l y a n d d e m o­ g raph ically is without quest i o n . H o w w e a re to e d u cate o u r g rowi ng popu l ation i s of concern to all responsi ble educators. It is to everyone's i n terest that coop­ eration among all of the state's ed u ca t i o n a l secto rs be m a i n ­ tained i n order t o save the state mo ney; to m a i nt a i n access to i nst itutions w h i c h p rovide the best fit fo r the i n d iv i d u a l stu­ dent; to m i n i m i ze co m petition for stu dents; and, by avoid i n g d u p l i cat i o n of p ro g ra m s a n d facilities, t o keep the cost with i n a manageable figu re. WFHE and H E C a re p rov i d i ng strong leaders h i p roles. The cu r­ rent cooperative worki ng rela­ tionship is a n historic fi rst, and I am confident it will resu lt in the most cost-effective way of solv­ i n g the u n met e d u ca t i o n a l needs of wash ington State. We conti n u e to work towa rd that goal. •

Women at PLU By Dr. Philip Nordquist centennial Historian

(This is the 1 5th feature in a 20-part series)

Alexis de Tocq u evi l l e , the astute French com mentator on h u m a n affa i rs, spoke a bo u t American women after h e had travelled i n America i n the ea rly 1 830s. He sa id, "If I were asked to what the si ngular p rosperity a n d g rowing strength of the Am erica ns ought to be attribut­ ed, I should reply: To the superi­ ority of thei r women ." The sa me could be sa id a bout PLU. Women have played crucial ro les in the fou n d i n g , deve lop­ ment. su rviva l a n d su ccess of PLU, but they have not a l ways received enough recog nition for thei r contributions. And because so many of them were modest-­ even self-effaci ng--and were only dOing what t hey thought was thei r responsi bil ity, it is h a rd to find evidence to i l l u strate and d ramatize their contri butions. H a p p i ly, some very i nterest i ng evi dence does exist. espec i a l ly for the earl iest portions of PLU's h istory. PLU was co-educational a nd had women faculty m e m b e rs from the beg i n n ing (u n l i ke its N o rweg i a n Synod ro le m odel Luther Col lege). The first woma n facu lty member was a Val pa ra i so U n i versity g ra d u a te n a m ed Sophie Peterson who taught a mu ltitude of cou rses. She was a relative of later u n iversity vice p resident Clayton Peterson . M i n­ utes from faculty meeti ngs sug­ gest she spoke her m i n d q u ite resol utely and was considered a peer by her male col leagues. The fi rst g raduates of the new school in 1 898 were wo m e n : Ettie Kraabel a n d Amanda Swa n . T h e 1 899 g radu ates were a l so women. The fi rst ma les g radu at­ ed in 1 900. There is little evidence about t hese wo men's perso n a l iti es, h owever; that changes when we come to Mary Wiborg Hong, the wife of PLU's third p resident. N i ls H o n g .

N i ls Hong beli eved that the high status of women i n Norway­ -and u ndou bted ly Pa rkla nd--went back to the time of the Vikings. The men went off for a year at a time and the women ra n th i ngs; you cou ldn't expect them to be su bservient when the s h i ps retu rned, he sa id. In like manner, the PLU a d m i n­ istrators would be gone for i nor­ d i nately long periods of t i m e, travel l i ng to the midwest, raisi ng money and recru iting students. While they were gone the wom­ en m i lked the cows, tended the gardens, raised the c h i l d ren and contri buted m ightily to the run­ ning of the Parkland c h u rch.

Plan ned G ifts Retu rn Benefits To Donors By Ed Larson Director of Planned Civing

One of the joys of working on the cu rrent Cente n n i a l C a m ­ paign i s to see t h e tremendous concern and i nterest that peo­ ple within the PLU constituency have for the u niversity. We a re finding an outpou ring of time, energy and d o l l a rs from both a l u m n i and n o n-a l u m n i as we bring the story of PLU's present needs, and the vision of PLU's future opportu nities. Over the years more and more has been written about what m ig ht be called "planned gifts." Such plan ned gifts h ave been described as a means by which an alumnus or friend of the u n i­ versity cou ld make a gift to PLU, while at the sa me time receiving some type of benefit. Let's

examine some of these benefits and possibilities. For exam ple, every cha ritable g ift (as long as the donor item iz­ es h is/her tax form) offers a tax savi ngs. This means that the actual cost of a g ift is less than what appears on the surface. Indeed, if someone in the 28% tax bracket makes a S 1 ,OOO char­ itable gift, the actual cost of the g ift is S720 (after tax sav i ngs). Using an asset that has grown in value over the years as a gift veh icle ca n offer other tax bene­ fits. W h i l e m ost people w h o want t o make a charitable gift do not do so for tax savings rea­ sons, such a benefit shou ld not be overlooked. Sometimes a plan ned gift can

provide freedom from manage­ m e nt or i n vest ment worries. There a re those who feel tied down by a particular i nvestment or asset (e.g. renta l p roperty), and wou l d l ike to experience the freedo m from s u c h worri es. T h e re is the syn d ro m e that thi nks "I can't afford to keep this asset; but i can't afford to sel l it either!" Maybe a planned g ift m ig ht be the solution to t h i s d i le m m a ! In s o m e cases, such a pla nned gift can p rovide i ncome for a donor's l ifetime. For many PLU supporters this has been the case. Or, there may be those who wou ld like to support PLU at this time, but present circumstances prevent it. Perhaps g ift pla n n i ng

in such a case might be that a p rovision cou ld be made in one's wil l . Or if there are no hei rs, PLU m i g ht be the benef i c i a ry of one's IRA or retirement plan, or be included as a benefi ciary i n one's i nsurance policy. In some ways, every charitable gift should be planned, because every gift has an effect on one's fam i ly, one's tax situation, and one's financia l/estate cond ition.

In my 19 yea rs at the U n i versity, I h ave never sensed the i m portance of schol­ arsh i ps and annual gifts more than this year.

Fish Yes, Drugs N o By Harvey J. Neufeld Vice president, Church Relations

Maybe it is the "ca l l of the wild," or the l u re of the lake or some sort of pri m i ti ve h u n ting urge that needs period ic atten­ tion. Whatever it is, the fu lfi l l­ ment of these subliminal needs ca n be relatively h a r m l ess a n d inexpensive. I refer t o my a n n u a l trek t o t h e Sportsm a n Show a t the Seattle Coliseum. I d ress for the part. H u nting boots, crumpled jeans, red flan­ nel shirt and a tooth pick i n my mouth a l l ow me to m i n g l e i ncogn ito with the h u n d reds, yes thousands, of recreation add icts. To see the m u ltitu d i nous hats and ca ps bedecked with fish i n g flies, envi ron mental i n sig n i as,

powe r boat ads a n d m a n y col­ ored sweat ba nds, is worth the price of adm ission. It is a dizzyi ng display. Every­ thing is "su re-fi re" and the best in its c lass. G ra p h ite tem pered rods with spring action, m uskox related m os q u i to re p e l l e n t, camping gea r that g u a rantees comfort, wide bea med dorys for wide-beamed people, boats that "flow over water," crazy jigs for crazy jiggers. It's a l l there. Pink bobbers. Wh ite water rivers. Pris­ tine wildness ca m ps . N orthern fish ing. Southern cookers. That's why I go. For a S 5 .00 ticket, I can mentally experience a l m ost any sporti ng event of

any kind. The u rge to spend is end less. The industrial might of g reat nations assau lts you at every t u r n . J a p a n ese i n g e n u i ty h a s captu red every corner of every market. The poor American fish don't sta nd a c h a n ce . By the time you have spent "what it takes" to get the big one, you r fish nears the astronomical price of nearly S900 a pou nd! How delig htfu l a n d surprising then, was my discovery of the kids corner - a man made fish­ i n g h o l e, stocked with trout, enci rcled by wildly gleefu l c h i l ­ d ren, catching fish. T h e i r gear? A

simple willow-l i ke pole, l i ne, hook, a n d bait cost i n g at m ost, 50 cents. Trout by the dozens suc­ cu mbed to the l u res. What a great thing, the entre­ preneurs of this show had creat­ ed. Their i ntent: to challenge the kids to say "yes" to fish and "no" to drugs. The gl itter and noise of the mega-bucks industry did not take away the spa rk of i n no­ cence revealed here. Of cou rse in a few years, these sa me chil­ d ren will d rift to the flashy com­ mercial side of the sport. B ut, for n ow, what a b r i l l iant cou p for the show: say YES t o fish, N O t o d rugs.

Missionary work In I ndonesia Holds Risks For PLU Alumnus By Judy Davis n the past fo ur yea rs, mission­ aries Eric Doo ley '84 a n d h is wife, Jen ny, have esta b l i sh ed eight churches in Indonesia a nd hope to extend their m i n istry to Thailand, Malaysia and the "fer­ tile groun d " of other fo reign countries. Sponsored by the M a ra n atha Ch ristian Chu rch i n Seattle, the Dooleys told about their experi­ ences in In donesia w h i l e they were home on an annua l month­ long fu rlough in January. "We m i n ister pri ma rily to uni­ versity students who we bel ieve are destined to become leaders i n the i r cou ntrY. . . by p reach ing B i b l ical C h ristia n i ty to futu re leaders, I bel ieve we can have a s i g n ificant effect on t h e i r nations," said Dooley. H e i ndicat­ ed tl,at Indonesia, with a popula­ tion of 1 70 m i l l ion people, is the fifth largest nation in the world. Among mem bers of cong rega­ tions of the churches the 000 1eys estab l ished are u n iversity professors, medical doctors and city offi cials. After fo u n d i n g a chu rch, the Dooleys entrust the spreading of t h e Gospel to a "core g roup" of C h ristian con­ verts and move on to sta rt a ch urch i n another a rea. Although the Dooleys m i nistry has been fru itfu l and flourishi ng­ -there are now nearly 300 mem­ bers i n the fi rst chu rch they establ ished--Eric faced a period when he co uld not preach p u b­ l icly for six months. "If I did, I ran the risk of b e i n g d e ported beca use I was atte m Pt i n g to

spread Ch ristian ity in a Moslem, m i l itary d ictatorship," Eric relat­ ed. Howeve r, d u e to a tu rn of events he describes as a " m i ra­ cle," the I ndo nesian gove rn ment allowed the Dooleys to estab l ish a Ch ristian church in that cou n­ try for the fi rst tim e in 10 years. E ric a d m its t h e re is r i s k i n volved when atte mpting to convert entrenched Moslems to Chri stian ity. In one i nstance, for examp le, a new member of a ch u rch the Doo leys esta b l ished was d i s­ owned by his father. " H owever, the father e nded up becoming a Ch ristian himself and is now evangelizing i n one of our chu rches i n Indonesia," Eric revealed . Eric and Jenny attribute their success in I ndonesia--despite the odds they face--to the "grace of God." Jenny said, "Before Eric and I met, we both had a goal of shar­ ing the Gospel i n another nation; for us, ou r experie nces in Indo­ nesia are a d rea m come true." As t h ey travel fro m p l ace to pl ace orga n i z i n g c h u rches i n I ndonesia and surrounding cou n­ tries, the Dooleys take their two you ng d a u g hters with t h e m : Emily, 4 ; and Nata l i e, 1 8 months. When they retu rned to I ndone-

Jenny and Eric Dooley with their children Na talie, left, and Emily.

sia after t h e i r fu rlough, th ey took along the curricu l u m mate­ r i a l s they p l a n to u s e when tea c h i n g t h e i r d a ug hters at home. Eric's i n itial interest in evange­ lism was spu rred by two individ­ uals he met at PLU: Steve Smith, m inority students coord i nator; a n d foot b a l l coach, F rosty Westeri ng. E ri c played for the "Lutes" while at PLU . He was a m e m b e r of the 1 9 80 team which won the national cham pi­ onship. "It was after a discussi o n of so me Bible verses with Steve that I began exa m i n i ng my Chris­ tian convictions a n d began to have a n u n d ersta n d i n g of true Ch ristian witness," E ric recal led. After g ra d u a ting from PLU and enteri ng m ed ical school at the U n i versity of Wash i ngton, Eric began h is association with

the M a ra n a t h a c h u rch wh ich m i n isters to foreign stu d ents attending the U n i versity. It was while he was i n volved i n this m i n istry that Eric fi rst met Indo­ nesian stud ents. Fee l i ng God's calling to evangelize in Indonesia in person, he left med ical school and worked as a chem ist while Jenny com pleted her schooling in social work. Because of their association with the u n iversity m i n istry in Seattle, the Doo ley'S were able to obtain a visa i n d icati ng they are "theol ogical professors spe­ cializ i ng �n leadersh ip trai n i n g," s i n ce m is s i o n a ry visas were unavailable. " D espite o b s t a c l es we've faced ," Eric sa i d , "throug hout our m i n istry, God has opened doors for us to reach key people who can hellp us spread H i s word."

Five Percent Of Nation's Total

Three PLU Alumni Active I n Student Section Of AMA By Clayton Cowl t's always interesting to see the reactions from my class­ mates at Northwestern U n iversi­ ty Medical School after they ask me where I did my u n de rgradu­ ate work. By now the a n swers are pretty predictable and, as usual, borderl ine condescending. " Pacific W hat? Is that some sort of church school?" "Oh, one of t hose sma l l colleg­ es out west." Or, if they're fro m H a rva rd, j u st. "Oh." After a l l . most of them a re vetera ns of the Ivy League system - that va u l t of acad emia boast i ng brains and the fitted casu a l comfort of a t u rt l eneck sh i rt a n d a n Izod sweater. That's why it came as a pleas­ ant surp rise to run into two PLU co l l eagues, n ot at a Homecom­ i ng football game, but at the America n Med ica l Association interim meet i n g last December in Honolulu, Hawaii. The AMA Med ical Student Sec­ tion is represented by delegates and alternates from each of the 1 1 4 U.S. medica l colleges. The section meets sem iannually two days preced ing the main assem­ bly of the AMA to discuss and vote u pon national medical issues affect ing medica l stu­ dents as wel l as the general pub­ lic. One example is the recent legislation ban n i ng smoking on a l l co m m ercial a i rl i ne f l i g hts under eight hours in duration, a d i rect result of a reso l u t ion passed by the student section of the AMA. Wh i le enter i n g t h e s t u d e nt section assem bly at the start of the meet ,i ng, I l iterally b u m ped into classmate La urel Olexer '88, now La urel Dicki nson a n d the delegate from the Medical Col­ lege of V i rginia in R i c h m ond. Soon afterwa rd, I saw Eric Olson, an '86 PLU grad and now dele­ gate from the U n iversity of Colo­ rado. Here, in the midst of med i­ cal st ude nts from around the


nation, PLU grad uates held near­ ly 5% of the voting seats in the l a rgest o rgan izat i o n of o rga­ nized medicine in the cou ntry! The i rony of this u n p l a n n ed reu nion reem phasized the qua li­ ty ed ucation atta in ed at PLU. Quality comes not only by excel­ ling i n the cl assroo m , but by fi n d i ng the fine line of balancing one's life wit h challenging extra­ cu rricular activities. That bala nce is difficult to find in a large uni­ versity sett ing, but vital i n devel­ oping an OPtim istic, flexible atti­ tude and lifestyle. Ra rely does the opportun ity to be a chemistry major, serve as the editor of the campus news­ pa per, play in intra m u ra l athlet­ ics, and work as a n advisor to t h e Dean of Student Affa i rs come a l l i n one sen ior yea r as it did for me. But these experienc­ es, both i n and out of the class­ room, got me wh ere I am today. To me it's obvious that PLU ca n feel p roud to real i ze th at few sm a l l e r sc hools better pre­ pare as many you ng people for su ccess i n profess ional careers. For us now in health science and ot her p rofess i o n a l progra ms across the cou ntry, the differ­ ence in i n d i v i d u a l s who have gradu ated with a PLU deg ree is obvious. The attitudes of the students, the hard-working fac­ u lty, and the beaut ifu l ca m p us environm ent m a ke it d i fficult not to have a tremendous colle­ giate experience. For those students atten d i ng PLU d u ri n g its cente n n ial cele­ bration - including my brother Darren who checks in as a Lute this fal l - remember to live the PLU experience to the ful lest and take advantage of its infi­ nite opport u n ities. And when you graduate, don't be afraid to tell you r col leagu es you went to PLU, the H a rvard of t h e west with a l ittle m o re heart.

Gloria Fjelstad

Dr. Peter Ristuben

Gloria Kvlnge Fjelstad '55 died of a stroke last October at age 5 5 . The many members of the PLU com m u n ity and alumni who knew her well mark her pass­ ing with memories of a vibrant; i rre­ pressi b le personality, one who touched the lives of so many in her time cut too short. Gloria's long involvement with PLU began in 1 951 . She graduated four years later with a degree in teaching. She also graduated with O . B . Fjelstad, her future husband of 34 years (Pastor Fjelstad cur­ rently serves First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Idaho Falls, Ida.) Gloria's education studies at PLU fos­ tered a love of teach ing that evolved into a l ifelong dedication to young ch il­ dren and the early child hood lea rning p rocess. After graduation she taught fi rst and second grades i n the public schools of Seattle and St Paul. Minn. She later taught k indergarten in Bellingham, Wash.; was parent and early childhood di rector at Wenatchee Jr. College for four years; and was d i rector of the Ket­ chikan, Alaska, Headstart program for five years. PLU figured prominently in Gloria's life again as three sons entered and graduat­ ed in succession: Stephan 79; Daniel '82; and Eric '84. Two became F u l b ri g ht Scholars. The fa m i l y cache of PLU degrees expanded sti l l further via wed­ lock; Mary, Steve's wife, earned an M.B.A. in 1 98 3 , and Carolyn, E ric's wife, is a 1 983 n u rsing graduate. Over the years, Gloria also gave her talents to the chu rches and com m u n i· ties. O.B. served as pastor··Seward, Alaska, Lawrence (near Bel l i ng h a m ), Was h., Wenatchee, Wash ., Ketchikan, Alaska and Idaho Falls, Ida. In the chu rches she sang in the choirs and taught little ones in the Sunday Schools. She served on a commu­ nity museum committee, worked at an art gallery and represented Alaska at the Pacific Lutheran Un iversity Association. In her spare time she played consum· mate Mom for four children; in addition to the three sons, Gretchen, the youn· gest currently resides in Idaho Fal ls. Recently, three grandsons have been added to the family; Gloria seemingly was born for the role of doting grand· mother. Through it all, Gloria steadfastly smiled at life. She saw the world for what it is, yet found its i n habita nts··all of them­ well worth knowing. Bishop David Wold knew Gloria from her early PLU d ays and spoke at her funeral service. He reca lled so aptly that she possessed the "most ingenuous g ift for believing that everyone really want­ ed to visit with her . . . and i n fact they actually did." And what she would ulti· mately share were S i m ply her " marvel· ous gifts of hospitality and JOY." All those who shared Gloria's gifts will remember them well, and miss her deep· Iy

H aroldson­ coached tea m s h ave a lways been known for an u ptem po style of play with an occasional d u n k and sol i d shooti ng. I n 1 989-90, the fast breaks were fast, the dunks were spectacular and the shooting was dead-eye. "This club was one of the most - probably the most entertai n­ ing and fun-fi l led teams that I've ever coached," said Haroldson, who com pleted h is 1 5th year as a col leg i ate coach. "We d i d n't p lace a lot of expectat ions on this team but we thought we had a pretty good ba l l club. Basi­ ca l ly the same team that was 1 1 -1 6 l ast year fi n ished 1 6-1 1 this year. "Along with the ath l eticism that was displayed, our style of play su rfaced i n a n u ptem po, enterta i n i ng way. It wasn't designed to be enterta i n i ng, but rather to take advantage of our strengths. Sometimes it h u rt us, more often it hel ped us. It was always enterta i n i ng to the fans, though," he said. E nterta i n i n g, i ndeed . Atten­ da nce rose 86 percent (8,650 fans in 1 990 com pared to 5,050 last yea r) for home games, most notably in the student section. "I th i n k the p l ayers projected a closeness a nd a work ethic that was p icked u p by t h ose that watch ed us. We p l ayed with more emotion a nd had better

bench support this year," he sa i d . " That emotion swept i nto the crowd and b rou g ht them i nto the game m o re. It wasn't just a team effo rt, but also a crowd effort. The crowd was ou r sixth man, and that's the way it should be, It was very gratifying to both the p l ayers and the coaching staff," he sa id, T h e sixth man a l so h e l ped make Haro ldson's seventh sea­ son at PLU one to remember, He recorded his 1 00th Lute victory with a 68-58 win over Pacific Jan, 20.

"It was a thrill to watch Bu rke rise so high on the scoring ladder and see the g race and beauty of h is shots for fou r years," said Haroldson, Ha roldson also had kudos for his ot her fou r sen i o rs. " It was neat watc h i n g (forward Scott) C ri m i n go to work inside, chal, leng i ng his defenders with h i s g ra cefu l p ost m oves, (Gua rd) Byron (Pettit) rose to hei ghts this year that far exceeded a ny level he's played at before," sa id H a roldson. "And (g uard Steve) Maxwell and (swingman Kraig) Ca rpenter both co n t r i b uted despite potential season-e n d i ng i nj u ries (M axwel l broken fi nger, Carpenter fractured el bow). Max had some great clutch shots for us. Carp was our util ity man, our

acific Lutheran University, born of the Reform ation spirit. .." To persons with close ties to PLU, this i ntroduction to the u n i­ versity's Statement of O bjec­ tives is as fa m i l ia r as "We the People ... " or "Fou rscore and sev­ en years ago . . . " It has withstood the test of time through several distinct eras, and has remained virtually u n ch a nged a s the u n i­ versity's official "declaration" since the institution beca m e a university. For Dr. Kenneth C h ristop he r­ son, who reti red this spring as a professor of relig ion after 3 2 years, the document i s a source of great personal sat isfactio n . He helped d raft the doc u m ent, along with p hi losophy p rofessor George Arbaugh, the late h istory p rofessor Wa lter Sch nackenberg and ed u cation p rofessor emeri­ tus Arne Pederson. The statement was the c u l m i ­ nation o f an exhaustive i nstitu­ tional self study that cha n ged PLU's d i rection, led to u niversity statu s and signaled the end of t h e 1 9 -ye a r S e t h E a stvold admin istration. (Th i s l a n d ma rk era is discussed in detail i n Philip Nordqu i st's new PLU cente n n i a l history, Educating for Service,) "The Statement is a ringing decla ration of a cademic free­ dom," said C h ristopherson . "It was fo r m u l ated a n d ado pted amid a great deal of controver­ sy. It was the symbol of a new era at an i nstitution that had been sheltered and parochial." Christop h erson believes that Lutheran i nstitutions of h ig h e r e d u cation fl o u r i s h b e ca u se Luthe ra n i s m e n c o u rages a n "unfettered academic search for truth." He continued, 'The C h r istian faith, rightly understood, does "

not l i m it us, it opens us. We know we a re saved by free grace, not by having the ' right' answers." There will always be a tension between free in q u i ry and rel i­ gion, he ind icated . "It is a cre­ ative tension we welcome; we need not fea r it," he said. His g reatest s i n g l e JOY, h e reflected, has been to have had a hand in building a strong reli­ gion department at PLU . " U ntil the ' 5 0s, religion h a d been taught, not academically, but as a post-co nfi rmation n u rt u re . T here w a s some atte m p t to evangelize and i ndoctrinate," he said. A rel igion department should be as academ ically strong as any academic department, C h risto­ p h e rson asserted. " Y o u c a n 't rea l ly u nd e rsta n d a soci ety u n l ess you unde rstand the reli­ gious p ractices that have helped shape that society," he added. "Educators chal lenge students not only to know the material but to th i n k with it," h e sa id. "Religion is a n acid test. If you can th i n k i n rel igion you can think anywhere, because that is the l ast p l a ce some people think." T h i s p h i loso p h y h a s h e l ped b u i ld the rel igion depart ment into the strongest in the north­ west, a model followed by other colleges. "The department is sol­ id academ ically. But it is also u p front i n u pholding the u niversi­ ty's C hristian identity," he n ot­ ed. "Each of our facu lty mem­ bers is a p rofessi ng Christia n and active i n a local congregation." ' It should be u nderstOOd, he added, "that it is not our i ntent to make believers, but to teach students what the religious t ra­ d itions are.

Few of the sign if­ icant tu rni ng poi nts in ca m p us l ife and pol icy have escaped h i s i nterest or deep i n vo lvement. H u ber, who reti red in M a y , a rrived o n ca m p u s i n 1 9 64 as the second m e m ber of t h e fledg l i n g p h i l oso p h y fac u l ty Almost i m med iately he beca me embroi led i n the extended ca m· pus co ntroversy ove r com pulso· ry chapel . At that t i m e most other Luth eran schools had giv­ en it u p, and H u ber and others bel ieved it was doing more harm than good. The cha nge f i n a l l y c a m e i n 1 968. Though H u ber favored vol· u ntary c h a p e l , he now says, "Once a l l t h ose k i d s sto p ped showing up in one place at one tim e, we lost something." In the l a t e '60s h e was involved i n the cu rricu l u m study that l ed to the 4-1 -4 academic c a l e n d a r, a c a l e n d a r t h a t rem a i n s v i a b l e a n d v i b ra nt today. Though he describes it a tea m effo rt, H u ber was the g u i d i ng and i n s p i rational force behind the Integrated Stud ies Prog ra m , the alternative core curricu l u m . Si nce 1 975 "Core I I " has gai ned a nationa l reputat ion for PLU i n academic ci rcles. It accompl ished several things besides better learning opportu­ nities for students, accord ing to Huber. "It got faculty members work i n g togeth e r , " h e sa i d . "That is not easy t o do i n an academ ic enviro n m ent, where everyone is a p rofessional a n d an expert. There is also t h e very rea l fea r of fa i l u re for people movi ng i nto an u n fa m i l i a r set­ ting." Integrated, or interdisci plinary studies was a d esi red trend i n t h e '70s, but few u n iversities have been able to m a i ntain such p rog rams. Some that h ave a re using the PLU model. "It is harder to teach i ntegrat­ ed stud i es," sa id H u ber. "Our p rogram faculty a re taki ng it out of their h ides. But it has special rewards too." ISP's t h e m e , " Dy n a m i cs of C h a n ge," re m a i ns accurately descriptive because as new pro­ fessors are worked into the pro­ gram they bring fresh energy and ideas. "There is no sign that it is getting old a n d d ry," said H u ber. "In fact, the younger pro­ fessors seem the most enth usi­ astic about it." "The progra m is more popu lat­ ed than it ever has bee n , " h e

H u be r observed m i schievously, "Other p rofessors started th i n k­ ing, 'If H u ber ca n get that kind of money, anyone ca n .

"With­ out a focal point l i ke that, it is easy for us to become cloistered w i t h i n o u r o w n d i s c i p l i nes among only o u r k i nd," he sa id.

Gough has spent nearly half of her 40-year n u rs i n g caree r at PLU, joi n i ng the u n iversity facul­ ty i n 1 97 1 . Her spec i a lty has been medical-surgical n u rsing. Like her fellow reti rees, Gough has midwest roots. She was born and raised in South Da kota and earned her t h ree-year n u rsi ng diploma at M ethodist Hospita l in M itchell, S.D., in 1 950. With relatives in Tacoma, she ventu red west. working at Taco­ ma G e n e ra l H o s p i t a l for s i x yea rs. S h e retu rned east to Wheaton School of N u rsing in illi­ nois for her BSN i n 1 956, then worked in a Sioux Fal ls, S. D . , hos­ pital for two years. Prior to her appointment at PLU she served at the Tacoma General Hospital School of N u rsing for a decade, the last six years as educational coordinator. As the 1 9 70s beg a n , d i ploma n u rsing progra ms were being phased out ac ross t h e cou ntry and TG was no exception. "The handwriti ng was on the wa i L " said Goug h . S h e was fam i liar w i t h the PLU program . "PLU had students at TG," she said. "I knew PLU had a good program." "Working with students is chal­ leng i n g a n d sti m u l ati ng," she added, " a n d work i n g with the

n u rs i n g facu l ty has been a rewardi ng team effort." N u rsing has changed a g reat deal d u r i n g her ca reer, she observed. "Today it i s wide open in terms of options. You can work in schools, i n d ust ry, research, education, occu pation­ al health, com m u n ity health, or as a nurse practitioner, i n addi­ tion to the hospital option," she said.' "There a re more adult learners com i n g back i nto n u rsing, peo­ ple in their 20s and 30s," Gough added. "They a re a d d i n g e l e­ ments of depth and maturity to the prog ra ms."

During the 1 3 years at h is alma mater he com pleted a doctorate in classics at the University of Ch icago, being $h orey Fel low there in 1 9 56-57 and spend i ng the summer of 1 9 54 in Greece at the American School of Classi­ cal Studies in Athens. In 1 961 he moved on to what would become a 1 4-yea r stay at Concord ia Teachers Col lege in River Forest, III. After a two year stint as Dean of Chapel, he served as ch a i r of Concord ia's relig ion depa rtment for al most 10 years, a period interrupted by 10 months of teaching as guest lecturer at Martin Luther Sem i n a ry in Lae, Pa pu a-New Guinea and, later, by a year-long sabbatical spent half at the Uni· versity of Heidelberg and half in cultural travel around the world (particularly East Africa, Ind ia, The Far East). One sum mer was spent in Palestine on the Concor­ di a-ASOR archaeo logical expedi­ tion at the Bibl ical city of Taan­ ach. At Concordia he served in the Lutheran Chu rch-Missouri Synod, then gOing throu gh the throes of a doctrinal dispute in which Gehrke also became enta ng led. Some insisted on l itera listic and traditionalistic Bible interpreta­ tion. Gehrke maintained that the original historical and linguistic rootedness of Scripture should be included in adequate theolog­ ical interpretation. Al legations of false doctrine were i nitially voi ced agai nst Gehrke in 1 96 3 and formal charges were filed in 1 966. Both times he was exo nerated . The controversy in the synod contin­ ued, however. Eventually the make-up of Concordia's adminis- . tration and board of regents changed. Finally, after havi ng defended himself repeatedly for 1 5 years against ever renewed charges, Gehrke was dropped from the synod clergy roster, as the result of a Northern Illinois District committee report that

Gehrke chose not to appeal. By that time he had already put in three years in his new position at PLU. Two years later, at the initia­ tive and with the support of Bishop Solberg, he was accepted , via the collOQUY process, into the clergy of the American Lutheran Church, now merged i nto the Evangel icall Lutheran C h u rch in America. At PLU for the first time he has been teaching lay students in a d epartment of rel i gi ous stud ies with i n the h u man ities d ivision of a u n i versity rather than t ra i n in g people fo r the ch u rch's pastoral or teachi ng ministry. "I have had to retool , and grow i n ways I didn't have to grow before," he sa id. 'There is a lot of vigorous dis­ cussion here. You can't fa l l asleep," h e added . He also noted that there a re few ideologically fundamentalis­ tic students at PLU, particularly not among those of Luthera n background. "Stud ents usua l ly can write wel l a nd do good work," he said, "but you can no longer assume they have back­ ground in the Bible." In retirement, Gehrke will con­ tinue the life of a scholar. He has completed a man uscript on Gen­ esis 1 - 1 1 entitled Beginning From Basics. He is also the author of the 40o-page Concor­ dia Commentary on I and II Sam­ uel. He is widely respected as a translator and has translated a number of Germ an theological works into English . '" enjoy trans­ lating; it comes easily; and it is work that needs to be done," he said. For over 1 2 years he has joined a group of about 15 schol­ ars in publishing, u nder the lead­ ership of the Cath olic Bibl ical ASSOCiation of America, Old Tes­ tament Abstracts. He has con­ tri buted to each of the three yearly issues, sometimes provid­ ing as many as 30 abstracts of articles that have appeared in certai n major learned journals (some in German and French). He plans to continue to l i ve and • work near PLU.

"But I still consider myself to be in the ministry," Huber add­ ed. He bel ieves parish pastors have one of the most d iffi cult

jobs on earth. 'They have to be all thi ngs to a l l people. That is im possible," he said. "In the old days you cou ld get by on your aura of authority, but they don't have that anymore." In retirement he plans to delve more deeply in to phi losophical theology and com puters. He is working on video i nstructional materials for moral phi losophy, and will spend more time mak­ ing life more pleasant for his ail­ • ing father.

war eru pted so abruptly. "I am an American citi zen . I was born here," she continued. But citizensh ip no longer mat­ tered, on the West Coast partic­ ularly, in an atmosphere of fea r and hatred . "That fea r and hatred of Japanese was fanned by the Hea rst newspa pers," Yum ibe said. In Cal iforn ia they l i ved five people i n one roo m in a tar paper ba rracks. "We sepa rated our 'rooms' with Army-type blan­ kets," she said. Prior to the wa r, her fa m ily made a l iving on 20 acres north of Ki ngsto n, Wash . Her father, orig inally an i m m i g rant sawm i l l cook who worked up and down tihe coast, was leasing and oper­ ating a strawbe rry fa rm . Yu kie experienced d iscri mination d u r­ ing her primary schooling as she knew only the Japa nese la n­ guage, but by the fou rth grade she felt she had become accept­ ed. "I probably made things more d ifficult for myself because I fo ught back when I was tau nt­ ed," she smiles. Her fourth grade teacher was a major i nfluence in her l ife. "She was a caring, em pathetic person who treated everyone as equals," Yumibe remembers. That early experience was not forgotten. "I know how im por­ tant it is for professors to realize that students from diverse back­ grounds struggle to accom mo­ date to the major cu ltu re i n their p u rsuit o f education. I n doing so they sometimes place less importance on tlheir rich CUl­ tural origins. We need to be sen­ sitive to their needs and help them retai n the rich ness of their culture," she says. While in the internment cam p Yukie met and became engaged to Kiyoshi Yu mibe. He enlisted i n

the U .S. Army and joi ned the nisei team that trained prisoner of war interrogators at Fo rt Snel l i ng i n M i n n esota. Thus began 25 years of residence i n M i nnesota. When Kiyoshi went overseas, Yukie joi ned the U .S. Cadet Nurse Corps and graduat­ ed from the University of M inne­ sota with a degree in n u rsing. She worked in hospitals until 1 968 whi le raising a fa mily of five children. A career cha nge fo r Kiyosh i took them to Wisconsin, where Yukie earned a master's deg ree i n preparation for her own change to a teaching career. They returned to the Northwest i n 1 97 5 "because Kiyoshi was t i red of shoveling snow. " Yu kie spent the next five years teach­ i n g at com m u n ity col l eges before her appoi ntment by then PLU Di rector of N u rsing Dr. Doris Stucke. After some of the u ps and downs of her ea rl ier l i fe, her decade at PLU was "a t remen­ dous experience. "There have been great peo­ ple to work with, and there have been many positive changes," she said. Yumibe remains an enth usias­ tic ad vocate of n u rsing as a career. "There are so many more opportunities; no matter where yo ur inte rests l ie you can feel fulfilled," she said. In reti rement she will rem ain active on the board of the Area Agency on Aging. She serves on the agency's monitering com ­ mittee, wh ich keeps t a b s o n meal sites, day care centers and health care clinics. "We not only want to assure access to these services but the Quality of the service," she said. In addition she will participate in the Literacy Project and Well­ ness Cl inic at PLU's East campus. •

But we want them to real ize that we who are older went through the same experi­ ences and we survived them . They don't h a ve to destroy faith." He loves to Quote John Stuart Mill, who said, "No matter how true a doctrine may be, if it is not ful ly, freq uently and fear­ lessly discussed it wi ll be held as a dead dogma, not a living faith." Christopherson grew up on a farm i n South D a k ota . H e attended a one-room country school through eight grades. Both his parents had speech training, and he studied speech for 1 6 years, p l a n n i ng a law

career at one time. During the summer after high school, he had a deep religious experience that led him toward the ministry and then teaching. He attended Aug ustana College, Sioux Falls, S.D. and Luther Sem inary, then served in the parish ministry for five years before st udying in Norway as a Fu l bright Scholar and completing his Ph.D. at the University of Min nesota. Eastvold called him in 1 9 58 as Pacific Lutheran was planning to separate the phi losophy and reli­ g i on departmen ts. That chal­ lenge, plus the fact that PLU was the only Lutheran school "near mountai ns," of whi ch Christo­ . pherson had a l ways dreamed, confirmed h is decision. To this day he is an avid and active ski­ • er.

Largest Individual Gift In PL U History Is Dona ted Anon ymously

acific Lutheran U n iversity's 1 990 centennial is becom in g a once-in-a-centu ry experience in more ways than one. For the second t i m e in fou r m o n t h s the u n i vers ity h a s received a seven-figure g ift ear­ marked for its plan ned mu sic center. The newest gift, $ 1 . 5 m i l­ l ion from an anonymous Tacoma d o n o r, w i l l eventu a l l y be the naming gift for the center's con­ cert hall. The gift was the largest from a single individual in the universi­ ty's h istory. Last Janu a ry PLU received $ 1 . 8 m i l lion from Mary Baker Russe l l a n d her brother, Elbert H. Ba ker II, both of Tacoma. That gift was the un iversity's largest ever sin­ g le donation. As a resu lt, the center Will be named i n M rs. Rus­ sell's honor. The eventual ly-named 500 to 600-seat concert hall is the most promi nent featu re of the cen­ ter. The new gift brin gs total g ifts and pledges towa rd the Russe l l Music Center t o m ore than $5 m i l lion. Exp ressi ng his g ratitude for the generous gift, PLU School of the Arts Dean Dr. R i c h a rd M oe pOinted out, "The donor is desir­ ous that this concert hall be the outsta ndin g performa nce hall in the northwest .

Keri Lenz

Sean Neely of Bellevue is t h e 1 9th PLU student to earn a Fulbright Scholarshi p i n the past 1 5 years. The 1 985 grad uate of Sammamish H ig h School w i l l study i n Germany this com i n g yea r . F u l b ri g h t S c h o l a rs h i ps cover a l l expenses for a year of study, i nc l u d i n g tuition, travel a n d l i v i n g costs. A l ove of read i n g a n d an aborted sev­ enth g rade need lepoint class sta rted Neely on the road that led to the F u l bright hon­ or. "That l ove of rea d i n g j ust bl ossomed under PLU E n g l i sh p rofessor Jack Cady," Neely sai d . Cady i s also a wel l-known North­ west novel ist. Neely's German study beg a n i n j u nior high when he was u n a bl e to get i nto a needlepoint class and German was the only ot her class available. Those st u dies were conti nued i n h i g h school and refined at PLU. He spe nt his j u n i o r year in Germany u nder auspices of the Institute for Eu rope­ an Stud ies and the PLU Study Abroad p ro­ g ram. "You can study a lang uage exhaus­ tively, but there is n o substitute for living in the culture," Neely said. Neely's l a n g uage study a n d Ful bright . aspirations were honed by PLU languages professors Rodney Swenson and Pa u l Web­ ster. Swenson is PLU's Ful bright advisor. The son of Phy l l is and Don Neely of Belle­ vue plans an event ual college tea c h i n g ca reer. He is ea rning his teaching certifica­ tion at PLU a nd "may teach at the h i g h school level u ntil further g raduate study i s possible." He is t h r i l led with the o p port u nity to study in Germany d u ring th is historic time i n that nation's history. While he is fa m i l ia r with West Germany from h i s p revious study tou r, he l ooks forward to further travel in East Germany and other parts of Europe formerly beh i nd the I ro n Cu rta i n . H is Fulbright studies beg i n i n September.

When it comes to w i n n i n g prest ig ious scholarshi ps, Keri Lenz is one of the best. Fou r years ago, at H opkins H ig h School, the M i n netor,ka, M i n n . , sen ior earned a Presidential Scholarship, one of 1 20 award­ ed a n n ually in the entire cou ntry. She was the fi rst PLU student to ever have earned the scholarsh i p . I n May 1 990, as a PLU senior, s h e earned a F u l b r i g ht Sch o l a r s h i p fo r st udy i n Botswana next year. She is PLU's 20th Ful­ bright Scholar i n the past 1 5 years. The F u l b right pays a l l expenses fo r a year of study i n a foreign cou ntry. Lenz, a history and global stud i es major at PLU who a lso received a teaching certifi­ cate, plans to study Third World h i story at the U n i versity of Botsw a n a i n G a borone, the cou ntry's capital city. Speeifically, she will study the h istory of Botswa na's sec­ ondary education system since the coun­ try received i ndependence in 1 963. The young scholar became i nterested i n Africa d u r i n g her fres h m a n yea r at PLU. The u n i versity had j ust begu n a program to sponsor Namibian students o n campus. She attended a conference w here the plight of that country was exp lained . She hel ped fou n d a South African awa re­ ness committee on campus and has been involved in a cam p u s peace g ro u p . She received a lot of encou ragement from a h i story p rofessor, Jack B e r m i n g h a m, whose specialty is southern Africa, as well as her Fulbright and education advisors. A scholar with a 3.9 g rade point average, she has been a member of the Arete Soci­ ety, PLU's academic honorary, and was a n undergraduate teach i n g fel low. The daughter of Dennis and Patricia Lenz of M i nnetonka and a member of Gethsem­ ane Lutheran church there, she looks for­ ward to an eve n t u a l c o l l eg e tea c h i n g career.

acific Luthera n U n i versity has earned a reputati o n as the h o m e of potential Ful bright Scholars. Since 1 975, 20 PLU a l u m n i h a ve qual ified for expenses-paid g rad uate st udy u nder terms of the p rog ram, p robably the m ost wel l kn own schol arsh i p afte r t h e R h odes scholarshi p .

A rece nt m a i l su rvey of p revious PLU Ful bright g raduates revea led that among t hose who responded, all a re doing wel l . Thei r work i s exempl ifying PLU's centennial theme, "Educating for Service." For exam p le, PLU's second scholar, 1 976 grad uate M i chael Ar mst ro n g , i s a Ph .

"I hope to ca rry o n t h e excel lence i n teach i ng a n d concern for students that I experienced at PLU and have rarely fou nd i n my wanderi ngs si nce," he sa i d . H is specialty is Lat i n a n d Greek lang uag­ es, to w h i c h he was fi rst introduced at PLU. "They m i g ht not have been available elsewhere," he added.

In a d d ition, he served as an on-site resou rce perso n for Tacoma and Seattle media. At PLU Lu cky ea rned fo u r majors and was accepte d at H a rvard, Co l u m b i a , Georgetow n, Duke and V i rginia Law Schools prior to earning his F u l b right. He attended PLU beca u se he wanted to be at a rel igious institution where he felt "go Is a re more c l ea r, a n d t h ere is a q u a l i ty of l i fe I couldn't receive at a secular institution . " Like ArmstrOng, he i s i nterested in even­ tual college tea ching. J u l ie Carlson 77 is a col lege professor at the University of Cal i fornia-Santa Barb a ra. She said her F u l b right experience was cru­ cial in developing the self-confidence and i ndependence necessary fo r graduate and scho larly work. Sh e now teaches cou rses in British Romantics and fem inist theory. " P LU taught me the d iffe rence that a few co m m itted faculty can make in a stu­ dent's l ife, " s he sai d . Several male profes­ sors "inspired me, at l east in part, to be what I am today, though 1 m i ssed the pres­ ence of women rol e models." Since her campus days, the nu mber of women p rofessors at PLU has i n c reased significantly. Martha Olson 77 is a d i rector of a cou n­ sel ing center in M i nneapol is, Minn. "I have always fe lt my Ful b right experi ence was invaluable in increasing my global perspec­ tive and social awa reness," she sa i d . Reca l l in g PLU, s h e a d d e d , "I have very much appreciated the opport u n ity to get a broad-based l i be ra l arts education and to explore eth ical and spiritual val ues as an integral part of ed ucat ion .

Instead, h is stud ies led h i m toward internation a l business, and t h is spring he completed stud ies toward an MBA at the University of Michigan. "I feel my un dergraduate l i beral arts education is every bit as good as that of my MBA colleagues at U . of M . , most of whom attended big name school s in the east," he sa id. He noted that PLU was " l ik e find ing a home for l ife. 1 learned the va lue of my fa m i ly, heritage, rel igion and bel iefs." PLU's fi rst F u l b ri g ht Sch o l a r, A n n Meh ­ lu m Cling 75, is vice-president of a bank in Eugene, Ore.

istoric cha nges in nations around the gl obe h a ve made seve ra l Pacific Lut heran U n ivers,ity offic es seem l i ke extensions of t h e U .S. State Depa rt me nt du ring the past yea r. PLU students studying abroad and i nter­ nat ional st ud ents st udying at PLU have been objects of attention and sometimes concern on a l m ost a d a i l y basis as t h e d ramatic events unfold ed . I ronical ly, in March 1 989, t h e PLU Study Abroad office was so qu iet that Sp ecial Ac adem ic Programs Dean Dr . J u dy Carr sent a memo to Presiden t W i l l i a m R i e ke plead i ng for more institu tional recog nition of "ou r increasing i nternational awa reness and participation. "To many ou r g l o bal awaken i ng is a well­ kept secret." she wrote. Less t h a n two m o nths l ater her office was the focus of wi despread med ia atten­ tion. Eleven PLU students and several fac­ u lty mem bers were studyi ng and tou ring in Ch i n a at the time of the tragedy i n Beij i ng's Tiananmen Square, and there was deep concern for their safety. Fort u nately they had been traveling in the south of China where effects of the crackd own were not appa rent; i n fact, they knew less about the crisis than people back home in the U .s. Though com m u n ica­ tion and transportation were diffic u lt d u r­ ing th ose da ys, the stud ents and t h e i r mentors retu rned home safely. In August, Dr. Gu ndar King, dean of the S c h o o l of B u s i n e ss Ad m i n i s t ra t i o n , returned from the Baltic states with stu­ dent exchange agreements from univerSi­ ties in Lith uan i a , Latv ia and Esto n i a . The Balt ics were just co m i ng i nto the news as th ey sought m o re autonomy from t h e central Soviet gove rn ment. K i ng's program was the fi rst U .s.-Baltic academic exchange funded by the U .S. govern ment. Two months l ater t h e Berl in Wa lll was opened. And PLU F u l b right Scholar Ch ris­ tian Lucky was there, st ud ying i n West Berl i n . I n Feb ruary, 1 5 P L U students began their stu d ies in Latv ia, Lit h u a n i a and Estonia, and 1 1 students from Latvia and Lith uania began t h e i r st ud i es at P L U . Only h o u rs after their ar rival, the Baltic stude nts were covered by med ia as they enjoyed t h e i r fi rst expe riences in an Amer ican shopping m a l l . Fou r Esto nian stud ents arrived in May. For a few days in M a rch it seemed l i ke a possibl'e China crisis revisited. Moscow was tighten ing the screws on Lithuania, wh ere fou r PLU stu de nts were st ud y i n g at t h e Kau nas Polytec h n i c Institute. C a r r was i n freq ue nt touch w i t h b ot h t h e state department and the U.s. consu l ate in Len­ ingrad in efforts to assu re the safety of PLU students. Parents of the students, who were kept informed of developm ents, were in agree­ ment that if it beca me necessary to move the stu d ents, they shou ld go to Latv i a rather than return home, because thei rs was an expe rience of a l i fet i m e to be a borted only if risks beca me unacceptable. At v i rtually the same time there was a campus celebration. Five N a m i b i a n st u­ d ents at PLU and thei r friends ma rked Nami bia's Independence Day March 2 1 , a day that ended decades of harsh ru le by South Africa.


The Nam ib ian students are st udying at PLU on sc holars�l i ps funded by north west cong regations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America . Less d ramatic, but no less exciting was Dr. Rieke's viSit with Norway's Kin g Olav V la st fa l l and the cont i n u i ng presence of dozens of Norweg ian students on campUs. As a Lutheran u n i versity, now the l a rgest in the world, PLU has a special denomi na­ tional i nterest in most of these exchange progra m s Sca n d i navia, of cou rse, is pre­ d o m i n a n t l y L u t h e r a n . B a l t i c L u t h e ran share domi na nce with Catholics. N a mibia, t'he " m ost Lutheran nation in the world outside Sc a n d i navia , " rece ntly e l ected a Lutheran president. Meanwh i l e, Carr has had good ca use to reth ink the tone of her earl ier memo to D r . Rieke. "Al l of the attention has defin ite­ Iv i ncreased i nterest i n our study abroad and exchange programs," she sa i d . "We have no i n te ntion of p u l l i ng back now from our g lobal i n VOlvem ents, " she conti n u ed. But, she a d m itted, she would appreciate some return to norma l cy and fewer ro un d-the-clock vigils Normalcy would st i l l mean working with more than 200 students annua l ly on p ro­ grams in more than 30 cou ntries In Asia, Eu rope, Africa and the Americas. It wou l d st i l l mean working w i t h 1 40 i nternat ional students from 25 countries st udying on the PLU campus. Nevertheless, th ere are m o re progra ms available than there are students applying. "There a re lots of opport u nities waiting," Carr said. "We believe international experi­ ence is a vital part of a l i beral education and encourage students to apply." She poi nted out that normally the only additional cost is an a i rline t icket, and in the case of the Baltics, those a re su bsi­ d ized . "Tuition and l iving expenses a re no m o re, and someti mes less than on cam­ pus," she added. On c a m p u s, i nternatio n a l concerns remain ev ident. For exam ple, dozens of PLU fac u lty mem bers spend sabbaticals and special l eaves at international sites. Chi nese language has been added to the cu rricu l u m , J a p a nese l a n g u a ge w i l l be offered next year, and an East Asian St Ud­ ies prog ram has been proposed . More than one-t h i rd of PLU faculty mem­ bers have developed expertise reg a rd i n g one or more foreign nat ions or regi ons. They are increas ingly sought as experts by media and organ izations.

Letters from Latvia


Lesson Editor's note: The following are excerpts of letters home from Adam Col/ins, a junior politi­ cal 'cience and history major from Boise, Id. He was one of 14 PL U students studying in the Baltic states this spring under auspices of a historic PLU-Baltic academic exchange program. These letters were previously published in the (Boise) Idaho Statesman .

RIGA, LATVIA Feb. 1 4, 1 990 By Amer­ ican sta ndards, peo ple he re l i ve on the very edge of poverty. Everywhere where buildings are in disrepai r, plu mbing is rot­ t i ng away, coc kroaches a re everywhere and furniture is decades old. Every prod uct in need here is i n extremely short supply. Shortages exist i n everyt h i n g f r o m postage sta m ps a nd newspapers to water and clot h i n g. The only th ings in great su pply are b read, pota­ toes and Russian hats. Most of these shortages do not di rectly affect us as we are still being treated as VIPs . We a re receiving 300 ru bles per month; the average Soviet sa l a ry is 1 50 rubles per month. The going exchange rate on the streets of Riga is 1 5 rubles per $1 . Everything is so i n expensive here to us. No wonder these people both envy and despise Americans. I was incorrect in my belief that com m u­ nism was sta u nc h l y i ntact. J ust looking around the buildings, i n the stores, along the streets, one ca n qu ickly ded uce that society in the land of co m m u nism is gradu­ ally disi ntegrating. S i nce the state pays one the same salary regardless of whether work is done or n ot, the i ncentive is to work as little as possible. Paper and books a re in major shortage here. The paper shortage is so severe that even grammar school children can not get any. They are being deprived of the very essence of their culture. I hope that some­ thing changes here soon, otherwise these different national ities will cease to exist. Unfo rtu nately, the Weste rn world will only beg i n to send a i d and i nvestment when com mu nism is seen as h av i ng left, and the only way it wi l l be seen as leaving or having lost i nflu ence is if armed, bloody revol ution occurs. People here are saying this wi l l i nevita bly occ u r in fou r to five years. March 7, 1 990 - Teenage soldiers can be seen everywhere. Two years of m i l itary service m u st be se rved by a l l m a les (though as of March 1, concientious objec­ tion is al lowed). Si nce we have been here I have seen two massive demonstrations. The fi rst was the annual Army Day; 1 0,000 people tu rned out wearing the i nfa mous red flag of the U .S .S.R. and the h ated former com m u n ist flag of Latvia, chanting the i r l oyalty to Russia proper and swea ring to re main so. Most belonged to the p ro-co m m u n ist group in Latvia known as Inte rfront (the Popular Front's main opposition). Since this is a national celebration, the red flag was flown everywhere, i ncluding one di rectly beneath my fifth-floor· dorm window. It was quite a shock to wake u p and see this h uge flag. It reinforced my realization of where I was. The second big demonstration was Feb. 27, the date the communist party flag of Latvia was taken down and the original red -

April 1 3, 1 990 -- The KGB is the equ i va­ lent of a combination CIA, F B I , police, Secret Service, Honor G uard and rapid first deployment force. K G B "ag ents" can be easily seen. As for any surveilla nce of us na ive Amer­ cians, our belief is that yes, once in a whi le you notice the same man in gray fol lowing you around duri ng the day. At night you ca n hea r the l ight clicking of mon itoring devices beh ind the walls. We figu re that if the KGB has noth i ng better to do but l isten to the babb l i ngs of American college students, they are kindly invited to su rvey to their heart's del ight. In the time I h ave been here I have witnessed the u n p recedented and hysteri­ cal decl a ratio n of i n d e p e ndence of a republic within the Soviet U nion, the unex­ pected, overwhel ming win of the Latvian Popular Front over the Com m u nist Party opposition (wrl ich is causing M oscow to reeD, the spl it-u p of the latvian Com mu­ nist Party, the form u lation and execution of a Latvian-style "Continental Cong ress," ca l l ed the Citizen's Cong ress, a n d (soon) the decla ration of Latvian independence from the Soviet U n io n . April 1 5, 1 990 We were i nvited to attend a Latvian Lutheran Easter service, qu ite h istoric as it was the fi rst time since 1 940 that Easter services have been held lega lly. People do not sing loudly here, i ndeed their voices resemble w h i spers and a re only fa i ntly hea rd. I wonder if this comes from years of rel ig i o u s p e rsecution? We heard all of the Lutheran hymns we are accustomed to, but in a language we did not understa nd . America is held i n high esteem here, but most people don't real ize that anyone can become a n American (be they Latvian, Asian or Span ish). If they did u ndersta nd th is, they wou ld undoubted ly resci nd their opinion that Americans a re the cu lturally el ite. We go into m inute deta i l to explain the concept of equ a l ity. U nfortu nately, this lengthy explanation fa i l s to c l a rify, and everyone goes back to believing that a l l 2 50 m i l l ion Americans a re WASPs. There is an overwhelming a m o u nt of eth n i c and racial i ntolerance in Latv ia, as wel l as in Estonia and Lith uania. _.

and wh ite flag raised, officially, for the fi rst time si nce 1 940. At least 5,000 people were on hand for this occasion. Tragica l ly, the red and white flag now simply is the new com m u nist flag. This symbolic flag no longer designates l i be rty. The flag situation typifies the situation in Latvia as a whole. All of the concessions made by Moscow have been only symbolic. Latvia is no more free today than it was 1 0 years ago. The difference seems to be that people can now complain openly. There is more to com plain about. Food is m uch harder to find than it was in 1 980. I perso n a l l y don't see an i ndependent Latvia the way we u ndersta nd i ndepen, dence. If capita lism d oes e nter Latvia , it m ight resem ble 1 920's Chicago with major exploitation of workers. March 20, 1 990 The world h a s changed i n the past th ree days. O n March 1 7 I went to downtown R iga to take pic­ tu res of the pre-election demonstration on the banks of the river Daugava. Approxi­ mately 1 80,000 people attended; the dem­ onstration soon evolved into a parade to a freedom m o n u m ent. N ot u ndersta n d i ng what was bei ng sa i d l a nded me i n the front of this crowd of people. I n fact, I was marching practically next to the leader of the Popular Front h i mself. An old woman ran up and gave me a Latvian flag to wave. If I had not been so shocked it wou Id have seemed hilari ous; there I was in my bright yel low PLU C a m p u s Safety j ac ket and PLU baseba ll cap with a camera bag slung over my shou lder, a camera around --

Conclusion: I have personally fo und this program to be incred i ble i n two ways. The first is academ ic : O pport u n ities a re l i m itless for lang uage lea rn i ng and lookin� c lose l y at an amazing p o l itical situation. H istory is bei ng made here; to be a part of it is to be i nvolved i n a situation that may never happen again. Second is the chance to grow personally, prove to onesself that one can l ive in try­ ing c i rc u m stances and a p a rt from the secu rity of home or school, and see that the majority of the world does not adhere to the same attitudes found i n America. It is a chance to see that there does exist a world outside of the U n ited States. Life here is not a cake walk, but it d oe's • teach one a lesson for l ife.

Historian's Life Parallels ampus History Si nce Early 'SDs h e final yea rs of the 1 9t h century were h istoric ones in Pierce Cou nty. Taco ma was a fledg l i n g city. Was h i n g t o n became a state i n 1 889. T h e rail­ road arrived in 1 890. Many busi­ nesses and i nstitutions that are now com m u n ity p i l l a rs were fou nded duri ng those years. Out on the lu sh pra i rie south of Taco m a , on the road to Mount Ra in ier, Rev. Bjug Harstad was overseeing the construct ion of a then h uge b U i ld i ng to house a yet to be opened "Pacific Lutheran U n iversity." H i s s m a l l army o f workers were t h e fi rst res id ents of what i s now Park­ land. Harstad's "university" ' Was des­ ti ned to re main small, however, until after World War II. Not u ntil the early '50s d i d e n roll ment exceed 1 ,000 students. One of th ose early '50s stu­ dents was a tall freshman from Lake Stevens near Everett who came to cam pus to play basket­ ball for another Lake Steve ns a l u mn us, Marv Harsh man. The . fres h m a n ' s n a m e was P h i l i p Nordqu ist. When he grad uated i n 1 956, Nordq u ist was the Lutes' t h i rd all-t i m e leading scorer (he sti l l ranks 1 3th). The teams o n w h ich he played won mo re than 70 pl?rcent of t h e i r ga mes. The team went to the NAIA national tou rnament h is senior year.


He graduated with a degree i n history, having been i nspired by one of PLU's legendary profes­ sors, the late Dr. Walter Schnack­ en berg. Seven years l ater, after grad uate study at the Uni versity of Washi ngton, he ret u rned to PLU as a history professor, serv­ i ng on that faculty with Schnack­ en berg for 1 0 years prior to his men tor's u n t i m e l y death i n 1 973. H i s tenure now spans 27 years. For the past five years Nord­ qu ist has been working on PLU's centennial history at the request of PLU President W i l l i a m Ri eke and the u n i versity's cente n n i a l com mittee. He was the appropriate choice for the memorable assignment, p a rtly due to h i s lo ngevity as student and now senior member of the h istory faculty, but a lso because of his extensive profes­ sional understa n d i ng of c h u rch (particularly Luth e ran) h istory. That h isto ry colors deeply the h i story of PLU, and h i storic changes at PLU have often m i r­ rored those of the church. Nordquist's history, Educating for Service, is a fasci nating look at the peop le who h ave made PLU during the past 1 00 years. As he explains, "Successes and accomplish ments should be a n a­ lyzed, but m istakes, fai l u res and embarrassments also should be addressed. If the job i s done properly, it should also be read for pleasure and profit by peo­ ple outside the u niversity com­ m u n ity." Indeed, a centu ry of American history, from the Panic of 1 893 to V i et n a m a n d the Reagan Years, is i nexorab ly woven i nto the fa bric of PLU h istory, as is local and regional history. The book, available at the PLU Bookstore, may be ordered by mail or phone by ca l l i ng (206) 5 3 5-7665.

The new m u l ti-d isciplin ary pro­ gram enriches the trad itional l i b­ eral arts cu rricu l u m by add i n g new perspectives o n women's l i ves and acco m p l i sh men ts, he ind icated. It will attract students who see the existence of such a prog ram as evidence of a firm institution­ al com mitment to gender eq uali­ ty, Wills added . "Women's Stud ies b roadens the education of both male and ' fema le students," said El izabeth Brusco, anth ropology p rofessor who cha i red the program com­ mittee. "It enha nces thei r career preparation a n d p rofessi o n a l opportu nities wherever th ere is a need to u n derstand women and the new roles they are play­ ing in society." The prog ram w i l l c h a l lenge students on several levels - aca­ dem ic, self-know ledge a n d per­ sonal growth - while also offer­ ing specific ca reer s k i l ls, she poi nted out.

In addition to h e l p i n g create less l i m it i ng possi b i l i ties in a world of rapid ly c h a n g i ng roles and expectations, t h e m i n or, together with a major in anoth­ er d isci pline, creates an impres­ sive set of credentia ls for appli­ cation to graduate and profess ional schools and jobs. "The minor signals serious i nter­ est in gender, race and class con­ cerns that individuals encou nter every day," sa id Brusco. Some women's studies gradu­ ates who chose to center their caree rs arou nd women's issues find work in such a reas as affir­ mative act i o n , socia l c h a n g e agencies, conti n u i ng education, cu rriculum development, ad m i n­ istration, research, teaching, and government agencies and com­ m issions. For students p la n n i ng work i n w o m e n 's com m u n ity agencies, the m i n or will be a vital qualification .

Mooring Mast Name Change Considered By Jennie Acker Editor I Mooring Mast

S ixty-six years after the debut of the Mooring Mast, the PLU newspaper is wei g h i n g more than the typical change of pace that accompanies a shift in edi­ torship each semester. The fa l l 1 990 staff i s considering chang­ ing the newspaper's name and is looking to the PLU com mun ity for ideas. The newspaper proposed the change in an editorial this past April and react ions have been varied. Since that ti me, the Mast has pri nted letters to the editor both for and aga inst the change. A decision will be made by the fall 1 990 student editors at the end of the sum mer and result from the response the staff has received from the PLU commu ni­ ty. The Mast circulated a coupon in April and M ay issues a nd through the weekly campus bul­ letin and the Daily Flyer asking for either a suggestion for a new name or reasons why the name should not change. The coupon offered $25 to the author of the best name suggestion.

With the end of spri ng semes­ ter, the Mast had received 56 suggestions for new names and 35 votes for keeping the name

'The Mooring Mast. "

Accord ing to the Apri l M ast editorial. the primary reaso ning behind the proposed cha nge is that the name "The Mooring Mast" may no longer hold mean­ ing for students. The editorial also referred to the approach of the Centennial year as an appro­ priate t i me to co nsider such changes. Despite the moderate amount of support for the proposa l, a nu mber of strong voices have risen in opposition to the change, citing trad ition a n d pride as reasons to st ick with the current name. Beca use the staff w i l l not make its decision until early Sep­ tember, they are looking to the PLU com mu nity and alumni for suggestions and reactions. If the name is changed, 525 will go to the author of the name that is selected.

Com mencement for­ mally opened the celebration, the first of fou r g raduating clas­ ses to hold the d i st i nction of Centennial Class, 1 990/1 991 . The day was fil led with festivit ies, including i ntroduction and dedi­ cation of a processional banner, a com m emorative flag, a n d an outdoor bell scu l ptu re. E a r l i e r t h i s month , ou r one-h u n d red yea r a n n i versary history book was published, as was a centen­ n i a l magazine and c a l enda r. These herald a yea r of i m po r­ ta nt aca d e m i c , ath letic, a rts, a l u m n i , sports, soc i a l and com­ mu nity events. The deg ree of enthusiasm and involvement by i ndividuals and support constitu­ encies regard ing our Centen n ial is truly am azing, and most g rati­ fyi ng! Now, duri ng this special year, the p e o p l e of the L u t h eran chu rches and ot her friends in the Pacific N o rt h west h ave annou nced that they wa nt to give a gift to the u n i versity of a worship center. Pacific Lutheran University, from its begin ning i n 1 8 90, h a s maintained a strong rel ationsh ip with the people of the ch u rc h . Reso l u tions of sup­ port have a l ready been passed at four of the six synod assem­ b l ies of Region I . C a l l ed the "Space for Grace" prog ra m, the effort will be lau nched this fa ll. in October of 1 990. A steering com m ittee of pas­ tors and lay people from each of the synods has met reg u l a rly, and has laid p l a ns fo r raising $2 ,000,000 du ring t h e next th ree yea rs. I heartily endorse the effort. and am extre m ely grateful for the leaders h i p wh ich has arisen outside of the u n i ver­ sity to attai n the goa l . T h e need for a Worship Center on cam pus continues to grow as the un iversity expands. W h i l e worship occurs in sha red space at seven or eight variou s l oca­ tions on and off campus, there is cu rrently no real home for the Un iversity Co ngregation, Un i ver­ sity Chapel, or any of the other groups that reg u larly meet for wo rs h i p . Space is needed now, space set apart p rov i d i n g the worshipping com m u nity with a permanent identity. PLU was fo u n ded to p rovide education in a place where the Gospel is clearly proclai med and all truth is considered God's truth. Our m i ssion i s to lead stu­ dents to respond with fa ith, wis­ dom and ski l l to the exceptional ch allenges facing ou r worl d .

S o long as m i n istry must be done i n bor­ rowed space and at the m a rg i ns of ca mpus life, the Church and its message may be v i ewed as marginal and u n i m po rta nt. In the face of materi a l ism, secular­ ism, ca reerism and cyn icism, a worship center would serve as a clea r rem inder that PLU will con­ t i n u e as a u n i ve rs ity of t h e chu rch, now and into t h e future .

PLU a n d Lu theran Id ent ity By Dr. Philip Nordquist Centennial Historian

(This is the 1 6th feature in a 20-part series) Recent news releases suggest that the Pacific North west and Region 1 of the new Evan gelical Luthera n Ch u rch in Ame rica are respo nd i n g more favora bly to many parts of the 1 988 merger than any ot her portion of the U n ited States, espec i a l l y i n the a rea of reg i o n a l and synod­ sha red min istries. That's good news, but it is not su rprisi ng, given the long trad i­ tion of i ntra-Luthera n coopera­ tion in the region. Some of that coopera t i o n came about because of the geog raphic sepa­ ration fro m other L u t h e rans, especially i n the Midwest. But m u ch of it resu lted from the

energetic leaders h i p of Pacific Lutheran U n i versity, and t h e partners h i ps esta b l i s hed were pioneering ach ievem ents. They were 50 years ahead of the rest of American Lutheranism. The story of this early cooper­ ation and goodwill is a sal uta ry one that needs to be told and reto l d , as Lutherans seek to u nd e rsta nd and fill out t h e d i mensions o f the new ELCA. PLU's cooperati ve efforts go back to the m i d-1 890s when the Norweg ian Synod, the body that founded PLU, i nvited the Missou­ ri Synod cong regat ions to the Pacific Coast to become involved in the operation of the new u n i-

versity. Serious discussions fo l­ l owed, but u l timately n ot h i n g happened. Efforts to make PLU i nto a pan-Lutheran i n st itution conti n ued" h owever, and suc­ cesses lay j u st arou nd the cor­ ner. By 1 9 1 5 the Germa n-back­ grou nd Ohio Synod was send ing students to Norweg ian Luthe ra n schools, and that p rocess c l i­ maxed in 1 929 when st ude nts, a subsidy, a facu lty member, and two board members were sent to Pacific Lutheran College. I n 1 9 3 2 the Swed ish -back­ g r ou n d Augustana S y n od entered into the sa me coopera­ tive relation s h i p . The patte rns thus establ ished were u n ique i n American Luthera n i s m . Other ki nds of coo perative i ntra-Lu­ thera n activities came much eas­ ier after these ed u cat i o n a l breakthrou ghs. The cooperative ventu res, i n c l u d i n g ed uca t i o n, contin ued through the mergers of 1 960 a nd 1 962 and helped prepare the way for 1 988. PLU a l so has bee n the m ost visible symbol of Lutheranism i n t h e Northwest, a n d t h a t has helped shape Lutheran ident ity. Pride in athle tic acc o m p l i sh­ ments frequently has been a part of th is, especially footba l l i n the early '40s, basketball in the

' 5 0s, and foot ball a n d severa l women' s sports i n t h e '80s. M u sic, (especi a l l y the Choir of the West) has been i m portant as wel l . As PLU begins its 1 990-91 cen­ ten nial, it is i m porta nt fo r a l l Lutherans i n Region 1 to re mem­ ber its power as a symbol and its u n ique role as orchestrator of cooperation and u n ity. The u niversity also was fo un d­ ed to p ro d u ce lea d e rs for church and state, and it has ful­ fil led that res p o n s i b i l ity with c o n s i d e ra b l e s u c cess ( 6 1 4 8 te achers, 1 8 8 3 n u rses, more than 500 pastors, 438 doctors and dentists, 350 Ph D's, dozens of organ ists and rectors, a nd four of the Region 1 Bishops). When Pacific Luthera n .Univer­ sity was founded, the Norwegian Synod had two ordai ned pastors and 2 5 0 baptized m e m bers in the Northwest. The resu Its of the first centu ry of history have been dramatic. Reg ion 1 of the E LCA has 628 congregations and 2 5 3,343 bap­ tized members. If the u n iversity and the congregations conti nue to work together fa ithfu l ly, the second century of PLU's history and the fi rst centu ry of the E LCA's Reg i o n 1 c o u l d be remarkably i nteresting.

Another Passage By Harvey J. NeUfeld Vice President, Church Relations

"Grandch ildren are the dessert in l ife." At least that is what an old French proverb says. I affi rm it. With six g rand c h i l d ren in a few short yea rs, joy and pride are the order of the day at our house. Each contact with them is l i ke a new chapter i n " o u r" development. "Whose eyes does she have?" "The nose comes from g randad. " "That's just the way I was when I was sma l l . " "Very bright - that comes from mom!" . I have never been qu ite sure whether the genetic heritage is so early recog n izable. We tend to p ut ou r ideals, d reams, looks and aspi rations onto o u r c h i l ­ d ren a n d certa i n ly the grandch il­ dren. But ba t> ies g row and g row.

F i n a l ly, we o u rse lves take o u r first i n sec u re steps at be i n g grandparents. A few weeks ago we ventu red a weekend ca m p i ng trip with our two grandsons, ages 4 and 7 . I've never been o n e t o read self­ i m p rovement gu ides for va rious steps or passages of l ife. So now also I wou ld lea rn by experience. Although I must say, a l ittle help ahead of time wou ld have been prudent! I have a l ist now which will guide me i n the fut u re. Don't say, "Go for a ru n on the beach," un less you are prepa red to chase seag ulls or pocket-rob­ bing crabs. Don't say, " R u n as m u ch as you want,�' u n l ess you're prepared to flop exhaus­ ted in the du nes. Don't tell them about "sneake r waves" lest they

Q C l u b g ifts, which provide schola rsh i p support and fi nancial aid to thousands of PLU stu­ dents, hit record levels for the 1 9t h consecu tive yea r . G i ft i ncome for the 89/90 fiscal yea r was $893,874 - a 6.4 pe rcent increase over last year's totals. Composed of more than 1 ,850 i ndivid uals, busi nesses, chu rches and foundations, the Q C l u b has raised over $8 m i l l ion in accu mu­ lated cont r i b u t i o n s s i n ce its i nception i n 1 9 7 2 . More than half of that total has been given in the last five years. Ron Do ug­ lass, the cu rrent Q C l u b presi­ dent, told members and guests at the 1 9th annual banquet that "we are on ta rget to reach our goal of $ 1 m i l lion i n annual con­ tributions from the Q C l u b by 1 99 1 ."

b a n q u et was Dr. P h i l i p N o rd­ qu ist, the author of PLU's cen­ tennial h i story, " Ed ucating for Service." A nea r record crowd of over 650 members and guests were in attenda nce. Nord q u ist, one of PLU's most popular public speake rs, delighted the crowd with his d ry wit as he chronicled the early years of the Un iversi­ ty'S history. Many of his rema rks centered on the financial d ifficu lties faced by the institution d u ri ng its first few years. He noted, however, that despite many obstacles the u n i versity has g rown and pros­ pered because of the ded ication of facu lty and staff, and the generosity of friends of the school who bel ieved i n support­ ing Christian higher ed ucation.

Don't attem pt to answer the question, "Are we there yet?" When the weekend was finally over, I had had enough "dessert in l ife" for a whi le. Nevertheless, it was a n d wou l d be again a great time. Many of my ideals about being a good model fo r them went out the ca m per w i ndow. We were frazzled, sha rp-to ngued, grumpy and too dema nding by week's end. When we retu rned the boys to thei r parents one sleepy-eyed c h i ld remarked to his m oth er, "The trip? It was absol utely mar­ velous." Were they talking about the same trip I took? The great gift we can give our grandch ildren is not our model­ ing, or instruction. It is our pres­ ence. J ust be there for t h e m . Just b e there. years were for the members of the Q C l u b . Although we have been d o i n g m u c h bette r i n rece n t yea rs, Nordqu ist observed, fu nd ra ising has never been easy and PLU conti nues to rely heavily on the kind of peo­ ple who support the Q Club. At the close of the prog ra m, Q Club vol u nteers who h ad hel ped with u pgrades, delinquent mem­ bers and recru itment d u ring the past year were recog n ized. Douglas noted earl ier i n the eve­ ning that 256 new Q C l u b mem­ bers had been recru i ted si nce the last banquet . That rep re­ sents the t h i rd highest total in Q Club history. A d rawi ng was held among the vo l u nteers fo r two' prizes. Fi rst prize was d i nner for two donat­ ed by Ca nlis resta u rant in Seat­ tle. Nan Nokleberg was the win­ ner. Second prize, a copy of Dr. Nordqu ist's centen n i a l h i story, was won by Kathleen Burk. Pau l Larson, a 1 9 38 PLU g radu­ ate, was honored for the fourth year in a row as the top recruit­ er. He was given a surprise gift of two round tri p airfares donat­ ed by A l aska A i r l i n es. Larson rec ru ited an amazing 80 new members si nce the last banquet.
