This fa l l a nationwide search is u nderway for a successor to Dr. King as dean of the choo l . King has a n nou nced h i s i ntent to re ire from the post at the end of August 1991 . "We're looking for a person to g u i d e the school through the '90s a n d into the 2 1 st cent ury," said PLU Provost Dr. Robert Wills. Toward that end, a sea rch co m m ittee is being formed wh ich will present its find­ i ngs and reco m m e ndations to W i l l s and President William Rieke later t h is academic yea r. Under Ki ng's leadership the school, which he built virtually from scratch, has moved i nto the ranks of the top business schools in the country, according to PLU President Dr. William Rieke. In addition, it has become the largest single school on the PLU ca m pus, awarding some 200 bachelor's a n d master's deg rees each year. King, who joined the PLU business faculty in 1960. the yea r the school was separated from the econom ics department, beca me its di rector in 1 966. "The overwhel m i ng su ccess of the School of Business has been due to Dr. Ki ng's vision and i nnovation and to the su perb faculty he has attracted." Rieke added. King credits "outstand i ng faculty a nd students" for the school's acco m p l ish­ ments. "All members of our faculty have both academic and practical business cre­ dentials," h e s a i d . In ad dition. 23 of the school's 26 faculty members hold doctor's degrees. Both faculty and students have received many awards and recognitions. For exam­ ple. four business faculty mem bers have received the prestigious Burlington North­ ern award for excellence in teach ing and research d uring the past five years. In 1970, the year he was elected dean, the school beca me the smal lest business school i n the cou ntry to have its u nder­ graduate program accred ited nationally by the prestigious American Assem bly of Col­ legiate Schools of Business.

Hel Chur Ca munity By Jim peterson avid Swanson's fi rst i m press ion of Pri nce of Peace Luthera n C h u rch south of Seattle two years ago was deceiving. L i ke anyone d riving by, the PLU sociology p rofessor g a i ned an i m p ression of a typ i­ ca l l y attractive, nicely l a n d scaped c h u rch in a mi ddle-income metropolitan suburban commu nity. One co uld easi l y i m agine a ty pical Sunday morn ing service with a church fu l l of wel l­ scru bbed, well-dressed p a rishioners: moth­ er, father a n d two children, l istening raptly to their min ister. Before t h e service, c h i l d re n eagerly would be lea r n i n g t h e i r Bible sto ries i n Sunday School; t h e i r p a rents would be attending Bible study or other helpfu l clas­ ses. And so it was, in the late '5 0s and '60s, fol l owi n g t h e fo u n ding of the con grega­ tion in 1 9 5 5 some 1 5 m i les south of down­ town Seattle, n ot fa r from Sea-Tac, the Puget Sound reg ion's i nternat ional ai rport. Swa nson was viSit i n g P r i n ce of Peace because appea rances belied what was hap­ pen ing wit h i n the co ngregation. "Mem ber­ ship was dec l i n ing; there were fewer chil­ d ren; fewer fa m i l i es with c h i l d re n ; fewer you ng people; Sunday School att endance had dec l i n ed d rastical ly," said Rev. Donn Rosenauer, who had recently been called to serve the parish. Sea-Tac a n d re la ted com mercial enter­ p rises were a n d sti l l are encroaching. More t h a n 1 ,000 h o m es h a ve d i sap peared, repl aced by office pa rks and other busi­ nesses. "The church is now less than a m i le fro m the south end of the runways," Swanson observed. But other factors a re positive. "The con­ gregation has a record of sound financial stewardshi p, " he added. " M embers h ave a strong sense of com m u n ity and want to d i rect their m i n i stry to meet the needs of their neigh bors and general service a rea . " Rev. Rosenauer poi nted out "We realized that we didn't rea l ly know the demog ra ph­ ics of our congregation or com m u n ity. We needed accu rate data before we co u ld effectively a d d ress the concerns of the p resent or plan fo r the future." A com m ittee iden tified as the "Servant­ hood 90's M i ss i o n " was establ ished, a n d soon thereafter PLU was contacted regard­ ing possible resea rch services. Socio logy d e p a rt m e n t c h airm a n J o h n Sch i l l e r res ponded a n d volu nteered. H e a�so rec­ o m m ended Swanson, a su rvey research special ist. A native of Ken newick, Wash., Swanson had recently joined the PLU sociology fac-

ulty. He helped the congregation p repare a "m ission statement" and then design and ca rry out a com m u n ity su rvey. The latter was co nducted this past wi nter. The m ission state ment is: "To partici pate in; to serve; and to eva ngel ize our co m m u­ nity! " T h e su rvey includ ed general de mograph­ ic quest ions about household size, home ownership, employment and length of resi­ dence. It asked a bout com m u n ity services i n which the respondent might be interest­ ed . It also asked about rel igious preferenc­ es and activity, accord ing to Swanso n . Meanwhile, Sch i l l er, a 32-year P L U faculty veteran who has wo rked with scores of com m u n ity and c h u rch g roups over the years, was tra i n i ng presenters and record­ ers fo r a series of cottage meeti ngs i n parishioners' homes. D u r i n g th ose meet­ i n gs recently, members were i nfo rmed about the su rvey results. They also com­ pleted questionnaires on w h ich they were asked about their pe rcept ions of cong re­ gational needs and d reams. "Resu lts of both com m u n ity and mem­ ber su rveys a re being studied," sa id Rosen­ a u er. " Pr i o r i ties, t h e i r p r i ce tags, a n d means of fun d i ng will be determ i ned . " This fall t h e "Servant hood 90's" com m it­ tee p resents a rep o rt a n d reco m men da­ tions to the congregat ion. Swanson has done most of the su rvey ana lysis. While a part of his responsibil ity at PLU is to di rect such projects through his Center for Social Research a n d Public Policy, both he and Schil ler devoted many

Pri nce of Peace now has some fascinat­ i ng data with which to work. It has found in its com m u n ity, for exam ple, that: * 62% of w o m e n work outside t he home; 68% of a l l a re "wh ite col lar" work­ ers. * 51 % have a n n ual household i ncome over $30,000. * O n ly one-third have l i ved i n the i r pre­ sent homes over 1 0 years; more than half have been there less than five years. Near­ ly half expect to move in five years or less. * 71 % l i ve in single fam i ly dwel lings; two­ t h i rds a re buying those d wellings. * Over half l i ve in a h ousehold without c h i l d ren; 20% li ve a l o n e; a bout o ne-t h i rd h ave two ad ults and at least one ch ild. * A m ajo rity d o not reg u l a rly attend church; 57% a re Protestants. * Percei ved com m u n ity needs i nclude counse l i n g (pa renting teen s a n d young person issues, g rief, su icide, single parents); a sports gym; h obby, craft a n d outdoor activities; and shelter for homeless or a buse victi ms. Need for help with children, elderly or d isabled was not strongly indicated. , * Des i red rel i gious activiti es i ncluded B i b l e st udy (46 % ) a n d Vacation Bi ble School (38%). I n spite of concerns about youth counse l i ng, only 7% pe rceived need for youth progra ms. Rosenauer noted that the n u m bers show more reli gious i nterest . a nd activity than is act u a l ly the case, as respond ents like to sou nd l i ke they a re "good" people. Com­ paring data to p revious surveys, Swanson can "weigh" i nformation to make it more representative of the study a rea. The pastor a d m itted h e is g a i n i n g the perception that his chu rch is l i ke "a m is­ sion congregation in an alien land." But he is optim istic about the future. "We have vigor, i m agi nation and resources," he said. "We m ay be at the beginning of a jou r­ ney toward new and more a mbitious out­ reach," he added. Sign ificantly, the p roject has given birth to s i m i l a r projects i n t h e Puget Sound a rea. USing Prince of Peace as a model, Swanson and Sch i l ler are conducting work­ shops for other congregations. To date, 80 peo p l e represent i n g 30 chu rches a n d 20 denomi nations, have attended. •

Force for Students with Disa b i l i­ ties. The d ocument is intended to facil itate a positive partner­ ship with d isabled students. Project coord i nators were Gary M inetti and A lene Cog l izer of the Cou nsel i ng and Testing Office, a long with Academic Assistance Director Wanda Wentworth. Cogl izer now serves as coordi­ nator for students with disabili­ ties. She pOinted out that it is the stated philosophy of the u ni ve r­ sity to provide "an environment of equal access and opport u n ity fo r stude nts with d isab i l i t i es that i n t u rn may lead to thei r i ndependence. " It wasn't too many years ago that it was considered n ext to i m poss i b le for a person with a d i sa b i l ity to a ch ieve i nd e p e n­ dence, she observed. 'Today the pictu re is m u ch more p rom is­ i ng," she added. "I n fact. the g reatest obstacle for stu d ents with d isabil ities continues to be the perceptions of a ble-bod ied people that b e i n g d isab l ed means 'unable.' '' The hand book is i ntended to help a lter those perce p t i o ns, whi le offeri n g specific sugges­ tions for practical approaches i n teaching or i nteracting with disa­ b led stu dents. It a lso p rovides genera l d ata and i nformation about usefu l resources. "It is not u ncommon for facu l­ ty and staff m e m be rs to be u n ce rta i n a n d a p p rehe n s i v e about the b e s t a p p roach to working with d isabled students," said Cogl izer. Suggest ions for com m u n ica­ tion and classroom accom moda­ tions as they apply to a variety of d isab i l ities are i nc l u ded i n the handbook, she indicated .

The State of the U n ivers ity 1990 "As W it h t he Fi rst One H u nd red Yea rs, Centu ry II W i l l Be I n the Do i ng" Address to the Faculty Fall Conference o n the Centennial o f the University (abridged)

n looking to the Cente n n i a l , w e beg i n the 1 01 st y e a r of the i nstitution, the 3 1 st year of the u niversity, and the 1 6th year of the t e n u re of the c u r­ rent president. T h e c h a l l en g es of t h e year ahead will conta i n some that a re both qualitatively and qua ntita­ tively d i fferent from t hose we have e ngaged toget h e r in the past. It is particu larly i m po rtant, therefore, that I make clear and unequ ivocal from the beg i n n i ng the pride I co ntinue to fee l i n you and Pacific Luthera n U n iver­ sity, my g ratitude for the oppor­ tu nity to continue to serve PLU and its many constituents, and my certain confidence that in all essential and i m portant ways the u n iversity w i l l p rospe r as much if not more on chal lenges that a re d i fferent as it has o n those t h a t a r e fa m i l i ar. C o m ­ pared t o m a n y other postsecon­ d a ry e d u cational i nst i t u ti o n s, a n d cert a i n l y to m ost other work pl aces, a u n i q u e spi rit of com mu nity and cooperation per­ meates this place and enables working together on whatever problem may be cu rrent. This past yea r is chronicl ed by sign ificant prog ram m atic g a i n across t h e u niversity. Complete re-writing of t h e u n i ve rsity's Five-Year Plan, adoption by the faculty of new academic m i n ors and approval or i m p lementation of new master's level progra ms i n physical education and n u rs­ ing are exam p les of p rogra m ­ matic g a i n from t h e acade m i c side. In admin istrative a reas, the successfu l pu rchase of the East Campus, planning for a new dor­ mitory, and the unprecedented gift fu nding for and planning of the Mary Baker R u ssel l Music Center m ust be mentioned as signal accom plish ments. In looking to the chal lenges of the yea r ahead, I have chosen the theme, "A s With the First


One Hundred Years, Century " Will Be In the Doing. " The theme

in noway i s intended to su p­ plant or replace the official mot­ to for the Centen n i a l , "Educat­ ing fo r Serv i ce, Cen t u ry I I . " Rather, i t is i ntended t o suggest the fi rst steps for i mplementing that motto, and though it may seem self-evident or even trite, much of l i fe's g reatest wisd o m derives from such sim ple truth. As we antici pate the first year of the second century of the l ife of PLU, we look back in ou r histo­ ry. So much was done - good and bad, su ccess and fa i l u re, easy and hard - in the first one hundred years. In his Centen nial

history Educating for Service, Professor Phi l i p Nordqu ist te l ls us that it was the i ntention of the u niversity's fou nders that it be a "first-rank school," and he quotes from the Lu theran Uni­ versity Herald of 1 89 1 to say that the school " . . . s h a l l (a l so) g ive i nstruction i n a l l p ractica l cou rses that o u r you ng peop le need to have knowledge of, each in his own situation. The school will educate and bring up good Ch rist i a ns a n d good citizens." The qu ote reflected the then cu rrent u n d e rst a n d i n g of church and society, and set lofty goals for the tru l y fled g l i ng insti­ tution which, though i ncorporat­ ed as a u niversity, was real l y only a n academy with some col l ege level cou rses. But Christians, and over time others as wel l , were educated, thousands of good citizens were g raduated, and the i nstitution did become a "first-rank schooL" So m uch so, that last fa l l with the 1 989 biennial su rvey by U.S. News and World Report, PLU became the only p rivate school in all of Washi ngton, Oregon, Ida­ ho, Alaska, and Montana to be top ranked in every biennial sur­ vey by U.S. News since 1 983. The school's reputation was such that it g rew to have the la rgest u n derg r a d u ate pop u l at i o n of any N orthwest p rivate college, and the la rgest total enrollment of any Lutheran institution in the cou ntry. Little d i d i ts fou n ders d ream of such success, nor could they even have i magi ned the dimen­ sions of that success. For exam­ p l e , t h e re were then no F u l ­ b r i g h t schola rs, a n d it wou ld have been i m possible to report or even to u nd e rsta n d t h e mea n i ng o f t h e fact that now in some years as m a n y as th ree­ quarters of the total annual pro­ duction of Fulbright scholars in our state comes from PLU alone. That and much, much more suc­ cess c a m e to a n i n st i t u tion w h i ch from the beg i n n i n g and t h roughout its cou rse was so f i n a n c i a l l y i m pove r i s h e d it stopped fu nctioning entirely for two of its fi rst 1 00 years, strug­ gled incessa ntly to compensate its e m p l oyees at a l l , l et alone a p p ro p r i a te l y , and never enj oyed the secu rity of having j u st one yea r when endowment levels cou ld have met payrol l for even th ree months if it were necessary. R a t i o n a l l y, s u c h i m pove rish­ m e n t s ho u ld h ave a bsol u tely precl u d ed any, let a lone, g reat success. Yet, it d i d not. and it did

President William 0. Rieke

not because the people of PLU i n its fi rst one h u n d red years u n d e rstood that su ccess took ded i cated effo rt, it was in the dOing, and they were w i l ling to do it all again - and again. And you, m y col leagues of the facul­ ty and a d m i n i st ra t i o n , have modeled wel l from the i r exa m­ ple. It is your doing which truly and especia l l y i n the last decade has brought PLU to g reatness. Now, our doing together both m ust conti nue and, for the first few years of the 1 990's, it must include elements that are differ­ ent - d i fferent to u s, thou g h certai n l y not different t o many of our academic forebears. The p ost-b a by-boo m / b a b y - b u st-era continues to p roduce fewer high school gradu ates and to s h ri n k t h e pool of col lege bound stu­ dents. Let it be c l e a r t h a t the decrease in enrollment is not in any way related to any d i m i n ish­ ment in the market des i rability of the u n iversity. From fi rst­ hand experience in the field with pa rentlnew stu d ent meetings this very sum mer, I know abso­ l u te l y to the contrary. Rather, the h istoric base of the u n iversi­ ty's financial constra i nts com ­ bi ned with the un iversity'S suc­ cess in recru iting the l a rgest u n d e r g ra d u a t e population among private N o rth west i n sti­ tutions, simply means there a re fewer fi nancial aid dollars to be assigned to more students. To maintain e n rol l ment in these days of fewer students, h igher costs and less aid, an i nstitution m ust be small, wealthy or p ref­ erably bot h . Only i n institutions so characterized a re enroll ments constant for 1 990/91 . But since I have said that suc­ cess l i es i n t h e dOing, what i s b e i n g done a b o u t the fi nancial m atter? On t h e i n come side, I

have a l ready menti oned record fu n d ra ising, and it is not only on the capital but a lso the operat­ ing side. It also is g reater than that of any sister Northwest pri­ vate institution. On the expense s i d e , we began t h e response e l ev e n m o n t h s a g o w h e n 1 9 89/90 b u d gets were con­ t ro l l ed to m a tch u nfo reseen decreases in enroll ment and the u n p recedented red i rection of u n ivers i ty g i ft i n come away from operati ng toward restrict­ ed g ifts. Rece ntly, s i g n ificant aid from the State of Wash i ngton was secu red for stu dents who want to attend a p rivate i nstitution such as PLU. The Educational O p p o r t u n i ty G ra n t t h ro u g h which the state p rovides $2,500 in g rant money to needy trans­ fer students not only is law and i s fu nded, but n ow has been tested with the fi rst g ra nts administered; of all grant recipi­ ents state-wide, nea rly one-t h i rd a re com ing to PLU alone. Clearly, history is bei ng made with the program which for the first time has a l l owed m e a n i n gful state support to students going to p ri. vate schools. Another positive a n d exciting opportu n ity that w i l l come to us in the immed iate futu re is the chance to exam ine every activi­ ty and progra m in the u n iversity with the pu rpose of determining i ts essential ity to the centra l mission o f tt1e i nstitution, which is education. There is more in the first yea r of the second centu ry of the u n iversity that wi l l be " i n the doing." The u n iversity will con­ t i n u e the specia l em phasis and com m i tm e n t it i n cl u ded l ast yea r to make this cam pu s repre­ sentative and eth n ica l l y diverse.

PLU'S centennial hisrory is availble now! Educating for Service:

Pacific Lutheran University 1890- 1990 has been written by history professor Dr. Philip Nordquist. Uniquely qualified to write the volume, Nordquist

was a student at PLU in the early '50s and has taught on campus for 27 years. The book describes the triumphs, disappointments and tenacious

visions of those who helped to build PLU into the largest private educa­ tional institution in the Northwest. Educating for Serivce will be an elegant keepsake of the university's centennial celebration as well as a critical study of the school's often difficult enterprise, a memorable chronicle of achieve­ ments and follies, of struggles and growth. Beautifully cloth bound, the book includes more than 70 photographs, capturing many of the faces and moments of the PLU community over the past century. �

Recently I was reading the cou ncil m i n utes of C a m a n o I s l a n d L u t h e r a n C h u rch for the year 1 900. I was i nt erested beca u se both m y g reat - g r a n dfa t h e r and my g randfather were l i sted as counc i l m e m be rs. Th ree items were discussed for their budget: the pastor's salary, the cost of the Su nday School a n d a g ift to Pa c i f i c L u t h e r a n A ca d e m y . Encou ra g i n g o u r con g regat ions to g ive priority to Chri �tian h igher education at P L U I S J u st as i m portant today. The Q Club i s an excel lent way to do that. M a y we co n t i n u e to work toget her to ach ieve t h e goals that we all consider so i m por­ tant.

Wh at's Th is E n d ow ment Stuff A l l Abo ut? Not l o n g ago I was ::Jsked, "What's this endowment stuff a l l about? I h e a r t h a t word 'en dowment' and I d o n ' t rea l l y know what it means . " I n a wo rd, an endowment is a fund w h i c h is esta b l ished w i th the i dea that the fu nd w i l l never d i m i n i s h . Each yea r o n l y t h e i n come t h a t is earned by t h e f u n d i s u s e d . Qu ite oft e n , e n d o w m e n t s a re s e t u p t o m e m o r i a l ize o r h o n o r loved ones. For exa m p le, let u s s u p pose that I wou l d l ike to memorialize or honor someone special. I give the u niversity a gift (or pledge a gift over a period of ti m e) a nd i n d icate that I would l i ke to set up ar. end ow ment fu n d i n t he name of this person, and th at I wou l d l i ke t h e fund to provide sc holarsh i ps fo r deserv i n g stu­ dents. The u n iversity w i l l i nvest this g ift, and each yea r the earn. i ngs from this i nvest ment w i l l be u sed to p ro v i d e s c h o l a r s h i p assista nce i n the n a m e o f t h e deSignated i nd ividual. Endowments can be used for t h i ngs ot her t h a n scholarships. Books for the libra ry, equipment for laboratories, mai ntenance of a b u i l d i ng, are but a few of the other ways t hat endowments can be utilized. A Q Club membersh i p can be endowed for 5 3,000 or h i gher; a scholars h i p can be endowed for 5 1 0,000 and up; a chair ca n be named in a certain depart ment for 5 500,000; and a n u m ber of ot her endowment opportun ities a re a va i l a b l e at v a ry i n g a mounts.

Goodwi l l - More Than Games By Harvey J. Neufeld Vice President, Church Relations

M u ch of the excitement of this su m m er's G ood w i l l G a m es happened away from the ath let­ ic tracks a n d a renas. Thousands of tou rists from a h u n d red o r more cou ntries shared bus rides a ro u n d and boat rides on the beautiful Puget Sou n d . They jos­ tled el bows with stereo seekers a n d yog u rt sam plers at every mall in the greater Seattle a rea. It was a grand, festi ve and happy t i m e . Ted Turner lost money, but gai ned a t h a n kfu l i nterna­ tional co m m u n ity for his agg res­ s i ve, a l m ost rec kl ess v e nt u re i nto a Pax Soni Pugetiensis. For me, the h ig h l ight was nei­ ther ath letic n o r strictly cultura l . It was spi ritual. Leading me into a new u n derst a n d i n g of spi rit and liturgy were the 24 si ngers of the Sem i n a ries of Le n i ngra d . I expected the concert t o fea­ tu re black robed and bea rded p riests, enormous in g i rt h and bedecked in holy objects, of the o rthodox faith . That faith was i n deed exp ressed, as the choir sang excerpts from the l i t u rgy of the Russian Orthodox Church - a l i tu rgy of 1000 years (888-1 988). In stead the sin gers were you n g . Twe l ve lad ies, 1 2 m e n , one or two st i l l i n t h e i r teens - altogether remarkable. H a rm o n ies, r i ch and v i b r a n t , filled my nea rly empty spiritual reservo ir. I gu essed they co uld o n ly h a ve come from the spirit

of God brood i n g in the early morning m i sts of the Volga. For one p a rticu l a rly bea utiful prayer a young clean shaven red­ head s a n g a b a sso-p rofu ndo liturgical line so deep, so guttu r­ al. so melancholy, so strong, that some how it seemed his s o u l m u st h ave b e e n i n formed by another era, a nother time. Had he bee n party to stories of a gra ndfa t h e r o r u n cle who had su rvi ved t h e f rozen deathly ni ghtmare of the siege of Lenin­ grad? Where else cou l d he have gained such sensiti vity - or was it genetic? What I h e a rd was n o t j u st su perb m u sicianship and tech­ n i q u e . What I h ea rd was t h e sou nd of an angu ished so u l a s i t intertwined itself i n to t h e fabric of the Psalm - " Lord, you have been our refuge from one gen­ eration to another." I wept l i ke a child, or should I say like a sa in t, as the l i t u rgy washed me in a mu sical baptism. For a moment l iturgy d id what it should; it brought me i nto the presence of the heavenly hosts, yes, into the presence of God. How awesome are the rivers of faith that w i n d thei r way i nto t h e m a i nstream of o u r d ish ev­ eled lives. How h ea l i n g the mu si­ cal oi ntments of another church and c u l t u re, a n ot h e r l i t u rgy, in bringing goodwill to h u m a n ity as well as goodwill to games.

President's Message The pages of the

Report to Investors

contain activities and names which together make up the current and vibrant history of Pacific Lutheran University. The highlighted activities offer a microcosm of the life of the university: from academics to sports, from residential living to diversity of student body. The names of donors indicate the persons, corporations, organizations, and congregations who care about PLU, and who are willing to support the k ind of education it pro­ vides. I am extremely grateful for the faithful and growing numbers of those who sustain PLU with their gifts. This k ind of continuing support part­ nership is vital to all independent higher education. It not only helps pro­ vide facilities for academic programs, assists in meeting the operational demands and assures fiscal security through the endowment fund, it also provides significant scholarship aid to every student enrolled. In fact, tuition and fees cover only 80% of the actual cost of education for each full-time student; the remainder comes from the gifts and donations of our investors. The past year, 1989-90, has been a prelude to our Centennial Anniversary, a year of assessment and preparation. The theme of the Centennial, "Educat­ ing for Service-Century II", capsulizes the nature of the mission of the univer­ sity. Throughout the coming year, studies, symposia, and celebratory events will be formulated around four related topics: Reflecting on Heritage, Shaping Society's Values, Solving Humanities Problems, and Building artnerships for Tomorrow. These emphases indicate areas of continuing importance and discussion. They have been compelling factors from the days of our founding: education for the sake of serving others.

One of the projects generated by antici­ pation of Centennial events was the nomination and recognition of 1 00 alumni/ae. For the most part, these alums were not previously honored by the university, but represented the average graduate. An unusually large number of them are involved in service professions. Their comments on the positive influence of their undergrad­ uate years at PLU, the personal atten­ tion and concern of professors and staff, the excellence of their academic preparation, and the supportive atmos­ phere they found were very heartening. As investors, you need to know that quality of education and quality of life are constantly upheld at PLU. You help maintain those k inds of values. In our capital effort, the highlight of the 1 989-90 year and continuing into the future, is the funding for the long­ awaited construction of the music and concert facility, to be named the Mary Baker Russell Music Center. A complete description of the state of the campaign follows. I invite and encourage you to read the Report thoughtfully. On behalf of the regents, faculty and students of Pacific Lutheran University, I express our hearty thanks and appre­ ciation to our investors for their ongoing assistance and partnership!

Vice President's Message The Centennial Celebration at Pacific Lutheran University is characterized by a note of joy. Appropriately so! e.S. Lewis, the noted English theologian stated: "Joy distinguishes the life of Christians in the world." Yet joy cannot be sought as an end in ·tself. It's an elusive quality that comes to those who seek to serve rather than being served. The pages of this report list the names of many persons, individuals who are alumni and friends as well as groups of people in churches and corporations who seek to serve by giving of them­ selves - their time, talents and dollars - that students may be provided the best in education at PLU. The Centennial Celebration year recorded the largest number of gifts and pledges and the largest individual gifts that PLU has received in its century of service. For this the entire university community celebrates with oy! The goal for the first half of the decade was $16,500,000. It was over subscribed with $20,000,000 coming through Shar­ ing 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 Center, double the endowment again, provide increased help to under­ write tuition and provide funds for other capital improvements. The chal­ enging goal for the current campaign IS


We are confident that the $50,000,000 campaign goals of the decade will be reached - even over subscribed. The $1,800,000 pledge that will name the new Mary Baker Russell Music Center and the $1,500,000 pledge that at this point is anonymous, but will eventu­ ally name the auditorium, moved the Centennial Campaign much closer to the goal. These two commitments together with many other generous gifts made it possible to employ an architect. Plans are now being drawn. In the foresee­ able future, the Music Center will rise on its foundation and the capstone of our Centennial Campaign will become a reality. We continue our Centennial Celebration - with joy. Sincerely,

Luther W. Bekemeier

Vice President for Development

The School of Nursing enrolled its first nine stu dents in a Master of Science program. It pro­ vides professional nurses with the knowledge and sk ills to serve as nurs­ ing administrators, clinical specialists or school nurses. PLU welcomed 1 1 Latvian and Lithuanian students (four Estonian students were to arrive in May). They soon discovered many differences between the Soviet lifestyle and life in the United States including laundry facilities, academic course offerings, and fresh fruit. Fifteen PLU students left for the Baltics. A letter from Adam Collins of Boise, Idaho, read in part, "I have personally found this program to be incredible. Opportunities are limitless for language learning and look ing closely at an amazing political situa­ tion. History is being made here; to be a part of it is to be involved in a situation that may never happen gain."

For the second time in four months, PLU received a seven-figure gift earmarked for its planned Mary Baker Russell Music Center. The new­ est gift, $ l .5 million from an anony­ mous donor, will eventually be the naming gift for the center's concert hall. The SOO-to-600 seat hall is the most prominent feature of the center.

Centennial festivities kicked off May 27 with the raising of the Centennial flag and dedication of the centennial bell. The bell was a gift of Dr. and Mrs. William Rieke in observance of the cen­ tennial. Dr. Philip Nordquist's book, "Educating for Service", rolled off the presses this month.

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


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

Outstanding Faculty

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

Library Resources

Nearly $600,000 was spent last year to keep the Mortvedt Library collec­ tion 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 small, as the number of those gifts increases, the participation of many alumni and friends makes a posi­ tive impression on other potential supporters of the University. But small gifts alone cannot do the job. The University has encouraged a tradi­ tion of substantial giving through a special donor organization known as the PLU Q Club. Donors qualify for membership when their unrestricted and/or scholarship gifts to the Annual Fund reach $240 or more per year.

The PLU Q Club The PLU Q Club was started in 1972 to thank friends and alumni of Pacific Lutheran University who gave vitally needed unrestricted gifts to the Univer­ sity's Annual Fund. These gifts help secure PLU's commitment to quality education. The "Q" stands for quality. Q Club gifts - help underwrite the cost of educa­ tion 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, mem­ bers commit themselves to a specific amount of support each year. There are four primary giving levels: Member $20/month $240/year Associate Fellow $40/month $480/year Fellow $84/month $l,OOO/year Senior Fellow $200/month $2,400/year NOTE: Alumni within 4 years of gradu­ ation 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 1972. Today, there are over 1,850 members who gave over $893,000 to the Univer­ sity during the past fiscal year.


The following pages list the names of alumni, friends, businesses, foundations and churches who have supported the Annual Fund at Pacific Lutheran University during the past fiscal year, June 1, 1989 through May 31, 1990.

"T he first day of my freshman economics class I walked into a room of about 35 students. The professor explained that he wouldn't feel comfort颅 able until he knew everybody. One week later he went through the entire class and named each student by their first and last name.

('Dorm life. Two scary words to a girl who had nevt'r bem away from I,ome a week at a time. B/lt the transition came easily. 'he first day the hall staff welcomed the 11CJV students with a ,wrm meeting, escorted lIS to dimur and a football game, and rwganized a friendly new student OIuntation at 2 a. m. The first month 1 was so busy meeting people and joini1Jg ,wnn actiFities that it lI'as hÂŤ1'd for my parents to realize that their little girl, who 'd neJJt'I ' bem away from home, WIlS1I't homesick !))

Churches As a University of the Church, Pacific Lutheran University is owned by the 630 churches of Region I of the Evan­ gelical Lutheran Church in America (congrega tions in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington). Many of those congregations, 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 Univer­ sity's Annual F und are recognized through congregational membership in the various levels of the PLU Q Club.

mission of the University by subsidiz­ ing each student's educa tion and assisting in general operations. Many congregations elect to give for the benefit of particular students. Gifts to the Pacific Lutheran University Matching Scholarships program (PLUMS) generate matching contribu­ tions for young people from contrib­ uting congretations. Funds for the support of Lutheran students from the developing African country of Namibia are directed towards the Namibian Student Scholarship F und. Through these growing designated and undesignated gifts, congregations play a significant role in annual support of the University and scholarships for individual students.

Alumni Annual Fund Honor Roll 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. One year ago PLU alumni set new records for the largest number of donors and the highest percentage of alumni


giving in the University's history. Annual Fund gifts from alumni also set new highs. The challenge this year was to build on last year's success. As you can see from the table below, which covers the past three years, alumni contributions during 1 989/90 matched last year's record participation rate and set new standards for the number of donors and dollars contrib­ uted to the Alumni Annual Fund. This special Honor Roll of Donors recognizes the many loyal alumni who have made this another 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 know us best. In this case, the total dollar amount contributed is not as important as the fact that a large number of alumni make some k ind 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% during the University's centennial year 1990/91 .

1989/90 1988/89 1987/88

Although the number of alumni con ­ tributor is an important factor in infl u ­ enc ing others, clearly the dollar total given by alumni is what helps today' s students. O ver the y e rs, alumni who are able to make contributions at or ab ve the Q Club I vel of $240 a year have accounted for around 75% of all alumni giv ing. The following lists recognize Alumni An nu I Fund Donors by class f r gifts receive between J une 1, 1 989 and May 31, 1 990. Where two alumni are married, the sterisk (*) indicates that their gifts have been split between their respective classes. A "QI/ in front of a name indi­ cates that the individual is a current memb r of the PL U Q Club.

Capital and Endowment Gifts Gifts to Pacific Lutheran University's capital and endowment programs help strengthen areas of special need which require funding above and beyond the dollars available for general operation. Capital gifts help fund new construc足 tion, major campus renovation projects and special capital equipment needs. Endowment gifts help underwrite scholarship support, faculty salaries, student and faculty research projects, visiting lectureships, and general operations. The most significant current capital project is the planned construction of the new Mary Baker Russell Music Center. It will be the most visible result of the University's $30 million Cen足 tennial Fund campaign Shaping Tomorruw. The new music center will feature a 500 seat concert hall and will provide a unified space for faculty offices, instructional areas and practice rooms. Other goals of the Shaping Tomorruw campaign include doubling the University's endowment from $5 to $10 million. -

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this list. If an error is found, please notify us so that we may adjust our records.

By Jim "eterson

I I " u n i versity m ight be viewed as tIle

i ntersect the i r a utob iogra p h ies w ith the l ife story of the world," s a i d Dr. R u sse l l Edgerton at PLU Oct. 1 2 . Edgerton was the keyn ote speaker at the fi rst cente n n i a l yea r theme sympo­ s i u m . "Shapin g Society's V a l u es: The Role of the University" was the theme of the event. "The u n i versity is the pl ace where, if a l l goes wel l, students broaden the i r attach­ ments beyo nd fa m i ly, friends a n d home l oca l es, and take on a new sense of who t h e i r 'selves' are," observed Edgerton, the president of the Am erican Association of H i g her Ed uca t i o n . "They ch oose whether theirs is to be the story of a doctor, teach­ er or artist. And they try out many ' i sts'_ . . such a s enviro n m e nta l ist, fem i n ist or paCi­ fist. " T h e s e ' h a b i ts of t h e h e a rt: i n d e Tocquevi l l e's m a rve l o u s p h rase, can g i ve m ea n i ng to t h e rest of t h e i r l ives:' he added . Add reSSing the key issue ta rgeted in the theme, he asked, "H ow do we d i rect these stories toward (the intent) of you r centen­ n i a l the me, 'Ed ucati ng for Service?'" F irst, he i n d icated, st udents should feel they are p a rt of the 'gathering a round the cam pfi re' " . i nvol ved in the com m u nity l i fe of the u n i versity. " N ot the whole un iversi­ ty, but some relevant com m u n ity within it" E d g e rt o n noted . "C i t i z e n s h li p , as E d m u n d B u rke p o i nted out long ago, is usua l l y fostered t h ro u g h i n volvement i n t he 'l ittle p l atoons of neigh bors' that make com m u n ities work." He p oi nted next at t he class roo m , "at the enco u n ters we arra nge between ou r students and the l ife stor i 5 of the world." H e e xpl ai ned that stud ents c a n l ea rn about so meth i ng, or how to do someth i n g. But it is in the developm ent of atti tu des about som e th i ng t hat val u es come i nto play . " People acqu i re va l ues w hen they o pen the msel ves to and attach themse lves to an idea l , and then interna l i ze this ideal as thei r own," he sa id, noting that stud ents learn character by observing how men and women of cha racter do the i r work. He suggested that new ways be fou n d o ·


' I n the next centu ry we are going to need u n i versities with the kind of sou l that (PLU h i sto r i a n ) Ph i l Nordqu ist fi nds i n Pacific Lutheran - u n iversities with a deep historic co m m it m e nt to teach i n g , a n d a special eth i c of service: show stud ents the roles facu lty, a n d other role models, play i n the l a rger soci ety. He expanded that i dea to include those per­ sons about whom st ude nts a re ta ught. "Instead of encou ntering E mc2 as an abstract form u l a , why not a lso acqu a i nt them with E i nst e i n the person, the p rob­ l e m he was trying to solve, and what a n extraord i n a ry person h e wasT Edgerton asked. He conti n ued, "Va l u es education a l so req u i res the kind of teach ing in which the class itself becom es a com m u ni ty of inqui­ ry, a part of the great conversation that has un folded a m o n g sch o l a rs over ti me about the subject at h a n d .

Fu rther, he p o i nted out, "Val ues of o u r stude nts a re sha ped b y the influe nce of the val ues that shape us (the i r teachers), and what governs o u r academic l i ves. "I see a re lationship between o u r deep i m me rsion in scientific objectivism a n d the fact that many students find l ittle to noth­ ing about the sto ries we tel l them that relate to them perso n a l ly," he cont i n ued .

" I n t h e next cent u ry," he concl uded, "we are g o i n g to need u n i versi ties with the kind of soul that (PLU historian) Ph i l Nord­ qu ist fi nds in Pacific Luth e ran -- u n i versi­ ties that have a deep h i storic com m itment to teach i ng, and a special ethic of service." Quoting Pa rke r Pal m e r, h e s a i d , "Si nce the scientific revol ut i o n , o u r knowledge has sprung from two m otives -- cu riosity and contro l . "But there is a nother kind of knowledge that origi nates not i n cu riosity or control, but in com p assion or love -- a sou rce cel ebrated not in o u r i ntel lect u a l tradition b u t o u r sp i ritual heritage. "I can i m agine a Pacific Luth era n U n i versity that takes adva ntage of its Christian tradition i n a way that pos es new a nd fundamental questions for the acad e m ic side of the ho use. This tra i l of i n q U i ry wo u l d lead beyond st ructures a nd cu rricu­ lum to the very academic sou l of the u n i­ versity."

A H isto ry of H i story By Dr. Philip Nordquist Centennial Historian (This is the 18th article in a 20-part series)

When I began writi ng the his­ tory of PLU I thought it wou l d b e i nstructive a n d interesting to d e l ve i nto one d e p a rt m ent, descri be its facu I ty a n d stu­ dents, and trace its i nfluence. These Scene articles offer a won­ derfu l opport u n ity to do that. The department I know best, not surprisi ngly, is the history depart m e n t , so I decided to write about it. I was reared in a tradition of Swed ish Lutheran piety and reg­ u larly warned agai nst i m m odes­ ty so I will attempt to keep that i n mind as I write. I will u ndoubt­ edly have some d ifficu lty; I a m i nord i nately proud o f t h e cour­ age and dete r m i nation of m y departmental predecessors, the accom p l ish me nts of stud ents and the a b i l i t i es of m y col­ leagues. H i story has been part of the PLU curricu l u m from the beg i n­ ning, and it was ta ught i n a rig­ orous fashion accord ing to early catalogs. There were n o "profes­ sional" historians early on, how­ ever; history was taught by peo­ ple trained in other d i sci p l i nes, primari ly the classics and theolo­ gy. The fi rst more-or-Iess fu l l-time h istorians appeared i n the early 1 930s: Alvar Beck (1 929- 3 5) and Geo Reneau (1 9 3 3-52l. Reneau was the first woman to teach h istory at PLU . She was educated at the U n i versity of C h icago (M.Ph. 1 91 0) and in 1 944 com­ pleted a Ll.B. deg ree from La Salle U n iversity (do you remem­ ber th ose La S a l l e extension cou rses advertised i n magazi nes i n the 30s and 40s?). Accord ing to p u b l ished re ports, Reneau was demand i ng, prepared l ec­ tu res carefu l ly, and was the resi­ dent intel lectual a mong the fac­ u lty. S h e t a u g h t H i story of Civil ization. The history department was further stre n g t h e n ed in the 1 930s with the com i ng of Elvin A k re ( 1 93 7-70l. Trai ned i n the classics and m usic at Concordia College i n Min nesota, he came as dean of men and band di rector, but was soon teaching A merican and ancient history. He received an MA degree from the Univer­ sity of Wash i n gton i n 1 94 1 . Thousa nds of PLU grads took Pacific Northwest history from E l vi n Akre. H is 3 3 years of ser­ vice is the longest departmental tour of duty. After World War II the depart­ ment was fu rther strengthened by the scholarly contri butions of Magnus Nodtvedt (1 947-63l. He

b rought m aster's d e g rees i n politica l science (Col u m b i a) and theology (Pri nceton) and a doc­ torate in h istory from the Uni­ versity of Ch icago. He req u i red long term pa pers, extensive . memorization, and factual accu­ racy as many a l u m n i w i l l remem­ ber. H u n d reds of pre-sem stu­ de nts took c h u rch h i story and the Reformation from M a g n us Nodtvedt. The 1 9 50s b r o u g h t Wal ter Schnacken berg (1 9 5 2 - 7 3) a n d Pau l Vig ness (1 956-65) t o the fac­ u lty. Schnackenberg, with a Ph . D. deg ree from Was h i ngton State U niversity, was the most influen­ tial facu lty member at PLU dur­ ing the 50s and 60s; he fought with great vigor for the liberal arts and a m o re u p-to-date u ndersta nding of the philosophy of Lutheran higher education. As a result of h is i nfluence a rush of h i story m ajors d ec i d ed t h ey shou ld tackle graduate study. A stable of bright scholars was the resu lt. With a Ph.D. deg ree from Stan­ ford and the defi nitive study of N o rway d u r i n g World War I u nder h i s belt, V i g n ess h a d reti red from t h e Cal iforn ia pub­ l i c schools before c o m i n g to Parkla n d at age 6 2 . He taught n i ne years at PLU, p u b l ished a book a bout No rway d u r i n g World War II, retired a second time, and then b eg a n teach i ng at Faith Evangel ica l Lutheran Sem inary i n Taco m a , where he has logged 2 5 m ore years. Last month, at age 96, his 70-year teaching career was momentari­ ly stal led by a stroke. (Ed itor's note: Dr. V i gness d ied Nov 29. See page 24.l Nodtvedt, Sch nackenberg and Vig ness all p u b l ished books in the 60s, helping to estab l ish an a ppropriate scholarly norm for the newly hatched u n iversity (1 960). The importance of their schola rly contributions can not be gai nsaid; rigorous teac h i ng and scholarship cou ld co-exist at the new u niversity. New waves of faculty came i n the next three decades, includ­ i ng the l ate Peter Ristuben (1 960-69), a n enormously e ner­ getic teacher who was president of Bethany Col l ege i n Ka nsas when he d ied last Jan. 1 7 at age 56. The author of t h is article, who has the seco n d l o ngest departmental tour of duty, and Arthur Marti nso n a lso came in the 60s; both are PLU grads and were influenced by the depart­ mental ferment and excitement of the 50s.

D u r i n g the l a st 60 years, excl u d i n g o n e-year sab batica l replacements, 1 5 men and fou r women have ta ught i n the histo­ ry department at PLU; 1 6 have had Ph.D. degrees . They have publ ished mo re than 20 books, some to national and i nterna­ t i o n a l accl a i m . I n c l u ded h ave been two hi stories of PLU and one of Haml ine Un iversity. Four h ave decided that u n iversity admin istration was their cup of tea and have left PLU and teach­ i n g to beco m e presidents or deans elsewhere. These a d m i n is­ trative vapors sti l l b low around the depart ment. The best measu re of a PLU department's success is its stu­ dents. The PLU h i story depart­ ment is competitive with the better departments at simi larly­ s i zed i n stitutions a r o u n d the country (so are a n u m ber of oth­ er PLU departments). Si nce 1 950 more than 2 00 his­ tory g r a d u ates have become pastors (th ree are ELCA Region I bishops) and a l m ost as m a ny ha ve gone i nto the pu b l i c schools. M o re t h a n 2 0 have become lawyers and a l m ost 40 have completed doctorates; the l atter figure p laces PLU in the top 5 % of a l m ost 900 private,

primarily undergraduate i nstitu­ tions in the U n ited States. Among the gradu ates can be fou nd PLU's fi rst Rhodes Scholar (Bru ce Bjerke ' 7 2 ) and several other fi rsts for PLU grads: first doctorate from Ha rvard (Lloyd Eastman '5 3), first recip ient of a doctorate from a foreign u n iver­ sity (Robert Ericksen '67, Un iver­ sity of London), fi rst recip i ents of D. Phil. deg rees from Oxford (Ja mes Aageson '70 a n d H a rry Maier '81 ), and fi rst books pub­ l ished by Harvard or Yale Un iver­ sity Presses (E rickse n , Richard Slatta '70 and Neal Waters '67). There are u n iversity presidents (J on Wefald ' 5 9 , Ka nsas State), deans (J ack H o l l ' 5 9 , Ka nsas State), and di rectors of u n i versi­ ty presses (Fred Bohm '67, Wash­ i ngton State). Th ere are many fine depart­ ments at PLU; among the very best over the last 50 years have been biology, chemistry, philoso­ phy and h istory. All their h isto­ ries should be wr itte n . Fu nda- · mental to their su ccesses are the p i oneer i n g ach ieveme nts and determ i nation of facu lty mem bers in the 30s. Basic to their successes since then are succeed ing generations of dedi­ cated facu lty and able students.

. Make A Specia l Centen n i a l Gift To PLU Stu dents Th is Ch ristmas B y John Aakre CFRE Executive Director Of the Annual Fund

H u n d reds of PLU friends, a l um­ ni, p arents a n d c h u rch people wil l be making a special cente nni­ a l g i ft to PLU stud ents t h i s Christmas. T h e i r g i fts w H I help keep PLU f i n a n c i a l l y access i b l e for thousa nds o f students. Nea r­ ly 30 percent of the g ifts that come from this special gro u p of people w i l l be received in the month of Decem b er. What a marvelous Christmas present fo r PLU students. The people who make th ose gifts possible a re memb ers of the PLU Q Club and I wo u l d like you to consider j O i n i n g them this yea r. If you asked Q C l u b mem bers why they support PLU one of the a nswers you m i g h t g e t is "to h e l p more st ud ents fford a PLU education." That's a

very good reason to be sure but its only p a rt of the story. The more i m portant qu est ion is this - why is a PLU education of such value to these contribu­ to rs?" Indeed, why do so many d'ifferent people consider it wor­ thy of suppo rt? The answer li es i n the p r i m a ry mission of Pacific Lutheran Uni­ versity. The theme of PLU's cen­ te nnial ce lebration is "Ed ucati ng for Service - Century II." Q Club members bel ieve i n the i m por­ tance of offering qual ity educa­ tion in an enviro nm e n t which encou rages Christian val ues and service to others. G i fts to the Q Club do m o re than keep a col lege education a ffo r d a b l e . They re p resent a vote of confidence in the i m por-

ta nce of educat i o n with d i rec­ tion and pu rpose. The C h r i st m a s seaso n is a n app ropriate t i m e t o reflect o n the va l ue o f PLU 's mi ssion. The u n i versity's cent e n n i a l rep re­ sents an opportun ity to make a special g ift to help fu rther that mission. If you have not hel ped before, I wou ld l i ke you to consider join­ ing the Q Club this year. Mem­ bers h i p s beg i n at $ 2 40/yea r payments can be made annua lly, sem i -a n n u a l ly, q u a r terly or monthly. Other membersh ip lev­ els are $480, $1 000, and $2400. (Al u m n i with i n fou r yea rs of graduation may join as Ju nior Q Club mem bers for $1 20/Yearl. If you a re a cu rrent Q Club member, perhaps this i s t h e yea r to i ncrease your contri b u -

At the end of each year, there is a flu rry of act iv ity around the u n i vers ity with people w h o a re making year-end gifts. For some people, it is a time when they eval uate where they sta n d finan­ c i a l ly, and they deter m i n e the amount that they wish to share with PLU. Fo r others, the end of the year means serious fi nancial pla n ni ng, which i ncl udes looking at the tax conseq uences of mak­ ing a charitable gift. Pe rhaps as important as mak­ i ng a year-end gift i s the manner i n whi ch it is made. While cash (or check) is the normal mode of giving, one sho u l d not overlook the use of a p p reci ated assets for g ift givi ng. For exam ple, let us say that a person bo ught so me stock for $2 ,500 a few years ago. Today, that stock is worth $1 0,000. A gift of that stock would not only save that donor i ncome taxes of $2,800 i n a 2 8 % tax bracket ( $ 1 0,000 ch a ritable deduct ion times 28 %), but it wou ld a l so avoid a tax of $ 2 , 1 00 o n the capital gain ( $ 7 , 500 g a i n ti m es 2 8 %). What t h i s means is that the net cost of the $ 1 0,000 gift i s only $5,1 00. Making a charitable gift should be m o re t h a n j u st wr i t i n g a check. Good p l a n n i ng should be a part of a ny charitable gift.

Cente n n i a l Alu m n i Recog n ition: Excell enceJ Diversity And Se rvi ce By Jim Hushagen preSident, PLU Alumni ASSOCiation


PLU's C en ten nial is a "on ce-i n­ a-l ifet ime" event. M ore than two years ago, you r Al u mn i Assoc ia­ ti on began looking for a way to celebrate the Cente n n i a l by hon­ ori ng both the Assoc iation's con­ stituencies - PLU a nd the PLU a l u m n i - i n a u n ique and mean­ ingfu l way. The Centennial Alum­ ni Recognition em erged; its p u r­ pose was to honor PLU d u ring its 1 00t h b i rthday by h o n o r i n g a representative cross-sect i o n of 1 00 of PLU's most dist i n g u i shed alumni. The Alumni Assoc iation did not inten d to select PLU's 1 00 great­ est a l u m n i or to honor a g a i n those a l u m n i w h o m t h e Assoc ia­ t i o n had p reviousl y h o n o red . And, we did not i ntend to honor decea sed a l u m n i or t h o se employed by PLU. Rather, t h e Ass o c i a t i o n 's intent in g i v i n g the Centen n i a l Recog n i t i o n w a s t o ce l e b rate and honor the d i versity a n d excellence that exists am ong the more than 2 5 ,000 PLU A l u m n i . h e Centen nial Al u m n i Recog n i ­ t i o n reci pi ents exe m p l ify the

best of what PLU has stood for and meant d u ri ng the past 1 00 years They are models of excel­ lence, h a rd work, h i g h ach ieve­ m e n t a n d i n t e g r i t y - va l u e w h i c h have cha racteri zed PLU throughout its history The Cente n n i a l Recog n i t i o n rec i p i e nts exh i b i t a n ext raordi­ nary corn m itment to excel l ence and number among thei r ra n ks a Rhodes Schol ar, severa l Fu lbright Scholars, a Pulitzer Prize winner, severa l E m m y Awa rd w i n ners a n d n u merous re c i p i e nts of "Who's Who" and " O utst a n d i n g You ng Men and Women" awa rds. They in clude severa l chief execu­ tive officers of successfu l com- · p a n ies, a Lut heran b ishop, t h e h e a d of Tacoma's n a t i o n a l ly acclaimed "Safe Streets" p ro­ gra m , i nternationally recognized sc h o l a rs, severa l school district superi ntendents and Washi ng­ ton's Su peri ntendent of P u b l i c Instruction. The recipients have been cho­ sen from the u p per echelon of the m a ny d i verse ca reer fields p u rsued by PLU a l u m n i - educa-

tion, health care, m i n istry, busi­ ness, home m a k i ng, h u m a n se r­ vices, the a rts, law, media, th e m i l itary and government. ju st to name a few. They a re a lso ch ro­ no logica l l y d i verse, sp a n n i n g more th a n 50 years of PLUs h i s­ tory, from the Class of 1 9 37 to the Class of 1 989. Their single most salient cha r­ acteristic, however, is their ded i­ cation to service - to their com­ m u n ities, th e i r fa m i l ies and the world . I n d i vi d u a l ly a n d as a g ro u p , t h ey are having a p ro­ fo u n d effect u pon the U n ited States and the world. O u r world wou ld be different, and certa i n ly wou ld be a l ittle worse, but for the lives and work of the Cen­ te n n ial Alurnni Recogn ition recip­ ients. In recog nizing these and ot her a l u m n i award rec i p i ents, t h e A l u m n i Association is rea lly hon­ oring PLU and the value of a PLU education. D u ring this Cente n n i­ a l yea r, the Association is cele­ brating 1 00 years of PLU - 1 00 years of dedication to the vision of creating a "fi rst-ra n k school "

wh Ic h w o u l d ed ucate its st u­ dents to be "good Ch ristia ns and good citizens " We a r·e also cele­ b rat i n g PLU 's ever- i n c reasi n g qual ity, as i nd icated by its recent recog n ition by US News a n d World Report as o n e of t h e nation's finest schools - the only Northwest p rivate school to be top-ranked in every U.S. News su rvey si nce 1 98 3 . Final ly, t h e Association is cele­ b rating 1 00 years of com m i t­ ment to servIce. PLU's Centen n i­ al motto, a n d the title of P h i l Nordquist's Cente n n i a l h i s-tory, are "Educat i ng for Service." This dedication to serv ic e to the co m m u n ity, fa m i ly a nd world has characterized PLU duri n g its entire history and conti n ues to c h a racterize t h e l i ves of its a l u m n i worldwide. The Alumni Association sa l utes the 1 00 Cente n n i a l Al u m n i Rec­ ognition recip ients a n d sa i utes the countless other PLU a l u m n i who are qu ietly m a k i n g a differ­ ence i n the world. They a re PLU's reaso n for being, and thei r l i ves are a n i nsp i ration to us a l l .

The Footba l l Game That eca me A Lege On Nov. 4, Tacoma ma rked the 50th a n n i versary of one of the city's most memorable events, the da y that a w i n dstorm destroyed the " i n dest ruct i b le" fi rst Tacoma Na rrows Bri dge. But N o ve m b er a l so m a rked the 50th a n n iversary of a foot­ bal l game that captu red Taco­ ma's imagi nation mo re than any other - a clash between then tiny Pacific Lutheran College and the powerful B u l l dogs of Gonza­ ga U n i versity. The game was sponsored and p ro m oted by c i v i c- m i n de d Tacomans as a tribute to the Lutes (then Gladiators), who had raced through the 1 940 season u n defeated , a n d t h e i r c o a c h , Cl ifford Olson.

No small u n i­ versity i n the West had enjoyed more football success. In spite of its recent tri u m phs, PLC was a decided underdog . Tacoma Sta d i u m (Sta d i u m Bowl> held 1 5 ,000 screa m i n g fans the night of Nov, 29. In the fi rst quarter, the Lutes were moving the ball when Can· adeo i n tercepted a Tom m e rvik pass and retu rned it to the Lute 1 2 -yard l i ne. Th ree p l ays la ter Gonzaga was in the end zone and led 7-0. Late i n the qu a rter Derr of Gonzaga i n terce P ted a n oth er Tom mervik pass, returned it 69 yards t o the P C six, a nd the he n ext B u l l dogs sco re d o n play.

halftime Gonzaga led 1 3-7. The Zags domi n ated the th i rd quarter but did not score. Early in the fou rth, PLC rega i n ed its m o m en t u m . As t h e g a m e nea red its closi ng m i n u tes, Tom­ m e rvik co m p leted five stra ig ht passes, the l ast a 1 9-yarder to capta i n S i g S i g u rdson for the ty ing score. Gonzaga 1 3, PLC 1 3. B i a i r Tay l o r missed t h e extra poi nt. Gon zaga i m m ed i ately began d rivi ng, but To m m ervik i nte r­ cepted on h is own 3 6 . Th ere were 1 20 seco nds to play. I n those two brief m i n u tes: Tom mervik i ntercepted a B u l l · dog pass. Gonzaga kicked t o the Lu tes t h e n recovered a L u t e fu m ble a t the PLC 22.

After a Tomm erv i k to Harsh· man pass the Lutes were on the Zag 17 with 16 seconds left, PLC was penal ized five yards for tak­ i ng too many time outs. H a rs h m a n , who had never tried a field goal in a col lege game in h is l ife, got the ca l l to try. He responded with a 3 2-yar· der i nto a tricky win d at a bad a ngle. PLC 1 6, Gonzaga 1 3! T h a t n ig h t i n Tacoma, the Dep reSSi o n , the war and the destroyed s u s p e n s i o n br i d ge were forgotten . Gonzaga dema nded a rematch.

A Brief Look At Henri k Ibsen By J. Robert Wills

Henrik J o h n Ibsen was born at Skien, Norway, i n 1 828, t h e son of wealthy par­ ents who l i ved wel l as part of the respect­ ed merca n t i l e population of t h i s pict u r­ esq ue seacoast sh ipping vil lage. Always a lonely, so me have said a sullen, child, Ibsen soon faced the realities which prevailed when h i s father decl a red bank­ ru ptcy i n 1 836. Hi s first seven years may have been spent wit h i n a fam ily sheltered by stature and by money, but from age 8 on, his youth beca m e a slow, ago n i z i ng fight for recog nition. After the b a nkru ptcy, for exa mp le, the fa mily beca me outcast, l itera lly, moving to a smal l farm outside of tow n , isol ated from the village and its people. The fa m ily poverty was severe. I n 1 844, when he had come of age, Henrik was sent so uth to G ri m stadt, a n other h a r b o r town, to apprentice with a d rugg ist, a chemist of little sta nding who had no real co ntact with the merchants, shi powners and other of Grimstadt's establ ished society. There he remai ned an outcast, slept in a tiny attic shared with the p h a rm acist's small sons, fe lt pai nfu l ly alone, earned less than a pittance (not enou gh, as it tu rned out, to help his fami ly in Ski en) and fed his i magi nation, i n part, by longing for the sea

a n d the freedom it rep rese nted, a n d by painting and writing poetry. The chemist's maidservant, ten yea rs Ibsen's senior, bore h i m a c h i l d t h ree years l ater, a son he supported for 1 4 years. I nteresti ngly enough, d u ring all of these years, Ibsen may have wished for the sea, but he prepared for a life of writing and of medi ci ne, and he left Gri mstadt i n 1 849 to enter the u n iversity at Christ i a n i a . That'S t h e history. The play, however, is another thing a lto­ gether, for Parker uses history only as a frame for theatre. Ibsen's early l i fe took place in 1 9th-centu ry Norway. The Appren­ tice, by contrast, takes pl ace on stage, and it sprawls through time and space to paint the pictu re of a you ng boy influ enced by many things t h roughout his l ife. In a l l , The Appren tice is a celebration of b i rth i n to the world t h rough elon gated discovery w h i c h eve n t u a l l y t u rns u nde­ served despa i r i n to u n expected t ri u m p h . I ronica l ly, the play ends with self-affirma­ tion, a tri u m ph of i n d i vi d u a l ity over the esta bl ished order. (And wou l dn't the older Ibsen be prou d!) J. Robert Wills is PL U 's provost. A theatre and fine arts educator for 27 years, he has directed 90 plavs and has written 10 produced perfor­ mance pieces,

re we Be i ng Wis e Ancesto rs? Distinguished Panel Of Scien tists Discuss Health Role In Humanity's Future By Jim peterson r. Jonas Sa lk, one of the world's most promi nent health scientists, posed a provocative a n d u n u s u a l q u est,ion d u ri ng h i s presentat i o n at PLU Feb. 2 2 . "Are w e bei ng wise ancestors?" h e asked. The question pl aced the l istener mental­ ly into another century, looking back upon the behav ior of h u m a n ity today. At first thought that look was a da m n ing ind ict­ ment of our generation. But as the long­ awa ited GTE Fo r u m con t i nued, with p re­ sentat ions from six other em i n ent h u ma n i ­ t a r i a n sc ienti sts, t h e view beca me more ambiguous, even somewhat prom isi ng. The forum was the third of five major theme symposia sched u led as highligh ts of PLU's centen n i a l observa nce. It was spon­ sored by the School of N u rsing and Divi­ sion of Natu ra l Scie nces and was fu nded in part by a grant from the GTE Fou ndation. Several of the speakers had been person­ ally invited by Dr. W i l i i a m Foege, executive director of the Carter Presidential Center In Atla nta, Ga, and a 1 9 57 PLU al um nus. In fact Salk noted, "I would have come if only t o hear Fqege spea k." Foege moderated the panel, wh ich also i ncluded Dr. Terrel H i l l of U N IC E F , Nobel Prize w i n ner Dr. Thomas Wel ler, in terna­ tional nursing leader Dr. Ma rgretta Styles, and Dr. Salim Yusuf of the National Insti­ tute of Health, a colleague of PLU a l u m n u s D r . Jeff Probstfield. Health care eth icist Dr. Danie l C a l l a h a n w a s a l so a m o n g t h e d i sti n g u ished spea k­ ers. Accordi ng to Sa l k, our generation is l iving in "preca rious population situation." Pop-



ul ation growth is spiking off the chart in this epoch, he ind icated. But he d isplayed a graph that showed population droppi ng dramatica l l y i n decades beyond the year 2000. "The critical point is the t i m e in wh ich we l ive," he s a i d . " We a re shift i n g from Epoch A to Epoch B . Epoch A was a period emphasi z i ng the individual, i n dependence and power Epoch B will em ph asize consen­ sus, collaboration and i nterdepend ence." He contin ued, "Epoch A brought q u a nti­ ty of chi lidren. Epoch B w i l l be concerned with quality of ch ildren." The man who gave the world the fi rst effective po l i o vaccine noted that our his­ toric concerns to date have been with death control and anti-disease. He predict­ ed the future w i l l focus on birth control and pro-hea lth. Sa lk con cluded that wisdom mu st be a word returned to vogue. Retu rning to his early q u es t i o n , he asked, " W i l l we be looked back upon as having been wise? Did we take responsibil ity for what we i nherit­ ed and for w hat we passed on?" He enco u raged "living a pu rposeful life - and having a pu rpose in l ife ." Sa lk was followed by U N ICEF's H i l l , who presented c h i l l i ng statistics about the fate of t h e world's c h i l d ren, 88 percent of whom a re born i n developing cou ntries. While deaths from maln utrition and ot h­ er diseases are alarmi ng, H i l l a lso poi nted to dramatic health advances, such as rehy­ dration solution, which can return a seri­ ously dehydrated child to near normalcy in a 24·hou r period . Dehyd ration i s the result of d i a rrhetic a i l ments, one of the world's major health problems. I m m u n ization agai nst a variety of diseas­ es is also contri buting to ,i m p rovements i n world health, h e pointed out. Weller, a 1 9 54 Nobel Prize win ner, recal l­ ed the worldwide smallpox i m m u n i zation

program headed by Foege in the '60s and '70s, ca l ling it "The greatest ach ievement in p u b l ic health in this cent u ry . " H e poi nted t o advances agai nst diseases such as m a l a r ia, but a lso warned that some parasites are becoming resistant to avai lable drugs, creating new chal lenges. H i l l is responsible for U N ICEF's support of the global drive to i m m u n i ze the world's c h i l d ren, and a lso for the age ncy's Diar­ rhoeal Diseases a n d Acute Res p i ratory Infections Control progra ms. Weller i s retired from the Ha rvard U n i­ versity School of P u b l i c Health. He has done extensive research on viruses, pa ra­ sitic worms and protozoa. H is and his col­ league's poliovirus research hel ped make Salk's vaccine development poss i b le. i l l poi nted to an i nternational confer­ ence la st SePtember i n volving 1 40 nations setti ng goals fo r the '90s. Those goa ls i nc l u d e a o n e-th ir d red u ct i o n i n deaths of ch i l d ren u nder five, the halving of the matern ity fata lity rate a nd a d u l t ill iteracy, and numerous other goa ls. He noted that world adva nces in health care requ i re co mpetence, com m u n i cation and cooperation. "We have had the com­ petence (and the science) for a long time. Only in the past decade have we had the com m u n ication and t h e coopera t i o n to progress ra pidly." Styles focu sed on the U.S. health care delivery system, not i ng that the issue is as mu ch political and eco nomic as scientific. "The U .S. is one of only two i n d u strial ized nations without a national health p l a n , " s h e sai d . " U . S. citizens ha ve the poorest access to the most expensive a n d most exqu isite hea lth ca re ." Whil e pointing to a long l ist of system

defi c i e n c i es a n d i n equit i es, s h e a l so gave reason for hope. "People are t a k i n g more respon s i b i l ity for thei r own health a nd a re g a i n i n g more expert knowledge," s h e said. One of t h e nation's most promi nent n u rs­ es, s h e poi nted to t h e i n c reased p ro m i­ nence of n u rses and m i dwives, who, she sa i d , can deliver mo re care at a l ower cost. The new prom i nence of health care eth i­ cists, such as C a l l a h a n , is al so an encou rag­ ing sign, she noted . Styles is a member of the board of d i rec­ tors of t h e International Cou n c i l of N u rses and past p resident of the American N u rses Association. For Yu suf, a national leader in l a rge-scale c l i n i ca l d ru g trials, t h e i ssue is re l ia b i l ity of such d rug stu d ies and su bsequent use of appropri ate d rugs i n trea ment a nd thera­ py. He expl ained how stat i st i cs re lated to l a rge-sca le tests cou ld be " m assaged" to suit al most any pu rpose. He a l so noted the high cost of major tests, which he i n d i cat­ ed can't be afforded fo r the n u m ber of d rugs need i n g testing. "We need to s i m p l ify," he said. "We need to recog n i z e t h e s i m i l a r i t i e s a m ong hu mans, a n d that resu lts of much s m a l l e r tests cou ld b e generally as accurate and more affordable." He a lso questioned the et hics i n volved in test i n g where some i n d i v i d u a l s rece ive d r ugs, ot hers pl acebos, and t h e effects, positive or negative, on each . Ca l l a h a n fol lowed with a d i scussion of health care eth i c a l issu es, a n d the i ncreas­ i n g d e ma n d for h e a l t h ca re rati o n i n g . " E u rope h a s m a n y of t h e reforms that we so desperately long for," he said. "But they too a re need i ng to rat ion health care." He noted that i ntern a t i o n a l o bservers are cu rre ntly st udyi ng O rego n ' s health care rati o n i n g model. Foege c h ose to p o i n t to the positive s i g n s in the world h ea l th co nd i t i o n . He noted t h e d ra m a t i c red u c t i o n i n world in fant m o rt a l ity i n two g en e ra t i o n s, a nd the i m po rta n ce of U N h e a l t h a g e n c ies. Because of the world h e a l th c a re efforts, "between th ree and fou r m i l l i on c h i l d ren . did not d ie in the last 1 2 m onths," he said. Stil l, he wa rned , "The veneer of su ccess, progress and civi l i zation is t h i n . It depends on a few people of vision, dedication and pu rpose There is power i n rightness, truth and wisdo m . " Seeking to i n sp i re the s t u d e n t s i n t h e aud ie nce, h e s a i d , "It is a pri v i l ege to b e in sci ence, but it is a l so a h u ge responsi b i l ity. He noted that we w i l l learn as m u ch, in t h e next 20 years as we learned in the past 2000 yea rs. "To be fu l l is to have a l ife of pu rpose," Foege added. This is worth your t i m e and effo rt. Devote you r energies to big p rob­ lems; you will not be bored ." •

A J o u r n a l ist's Dream

Students F Ilow In The Footsteps Of National Reporters In D.C. By Lisa Langsdorf


h is J a n u a ry day cou l d n ' t have been more bea utifu l . The sun shone brightly overhead and t h o u g h the temperat u re was brisk it felt good to be out wal k i n g i n the fresh a i r. My small g roup made its way a round the side of the C a p i to l and down the wide steps onto the M a l l . To the left of the long g rassy exp a nse was the Ai r a n d Space S m i t h so n i a n and to the right were the Museu ms of American and Natura l Histo ry a n d the N at i o n a l G a l l e ry of A rt . Stra i g h t ahead lay the tall Washi ngton Monume nt. Tli ese b U i l d i ngs a l o n e a re an aweso me sight but today somet h i ng more rema rk­ able had captu red my interest. I was about to attend my fi rst big anti-war p rotest. " H ow m a ny peo p l e do you exp ect today?" I asked one of the many g u a rds stationed a ro u nd the Capitol b u i l d i n g " F i fty to seventy-f,i ve t h o u s a n d , " h e repl ied Later, as I m a d e my way t h ro u g h the huge crowd of demo nstrators I kept th i n k­ i ng to myself, "What a time to be i n Wash­ i ngton, D.C.I" I had thought the same thing many times over the past six days There was no way Journa l i sm p rofessor C l iff Rowe could have known the U n i ted States would be at war when he fi rst began plan n i ng this Interi m trip, but c i r­ cu msta nces bei n g as they were, this was a fascinating week. I n t e rest m e et i n g s fo r t h e N a t i o n a l Reporting cl ass began late last spri ng. Cl iff was p l a n n i ng to take a sm a l l g ro u p of stu dents across the country by tra i n . The final desti nation would be our nation's cap­ ito l . There we wou l d observe the national media i n acti on a nd hopefully learn what it meant to be a "national reporter." In o rder to make the trip legitimate i n an acad e m i c sense, we were to research a nati onal issue that had some kind of local connection and write a package of stories to be p u bl i shed i n a local newspa per o r a i red on a loca l rad io statio n . Prel' i m i na ry work bega n i n Decem ber. We were put i nto fou r teams; one g ro u p was to write for the Morton Journal, a nother fo r the Enumclaw Courier-Herald, and my g roup was to prepare a piece for national public rad io affi l iate KPLU. The fi rst step was to meet the ed itors of each paper and come u p with a t o p i c . Once that w a s d o n e w e beg a n consulting resources such as the Cong ressional Di rec­ tory to fi nd out who to talk to in Wash i ng­ ton, D.C. We also began exp l o ri ng the com­ m u nities we were writing for, find i ng local sou rces, locat i n g magazine a rticles on ou r topics a nd m aki ng countl ess phone cal ls. Some work w as done over C h ristmas b reak but the bulk of our activity beg a n J a n . 7 . W e had only ten days i n w h i c h to com plete our research, a rrange and con­ d u ct local i nterviews a n d sc h e d u l e i nter­ views i n D.C. After a hectic week and a ha lf, it was a

rel i ef for me to boa rd the tra i n . For th ree days we were to see l ittle bes i d es eacll other and the wide open spaces of M id­ west e r n A m e r i c a . U n fo rtu nately, we passed t h rough the mou nta i ns of Washi ng­ ton and Montana at n ig ht. We spent the next two days sta r i n g out at the snow covered p l a i ns of eastern Montana, North Dakota and M i n nesota T h o u g h war news was relatively sca rce while we were on the tra i n , arriving in D.C. made u p for any shortage. Every even i n g I camped i n front of C N N to get the " Lat­ est." The fi rst day was spent sight-seeing. We cove red t h e m o n u m e nts, m e m o ri a ls, Geo rgetow n, E m bassy Row and the N ation­ al Cathedral. Though it was Mart i n Luther King, J r. Il o l iday, Wash i ngton was fa i rly qui­ et. The fol lowing five days i nc l uded trips to USA Today, National Pu b l ic R a d i o , N BC N ews and Associ ated Press b roadcast ser­ vice. We also conducted i ntervi ews saw t h e Capitol and the Su preme Court a n d many government agenc i es. Fun h i g h l ights fo r me i ncluded i d i ng the Metro su bway system as wel l as a Washing­ ton B u l l ets basketba l l game, d i nner at an E I Salvadorean restau rant and a n American Bal let Theatre performa nce at the Ken ne­ dy Center for the Performing Arts. I ' m not su re I've ever had a week more jam-packed with thi ngs to see and do and learn I saw countless h istorical landmarks, lea rned t h i ngs a bout my country I'd never known, watched the national media i n action a n d saw h i story bei ng made " before my eyes." As I reflected on what I'd seen over the last week I experie nced a wide a rray of emotions. For the most part, I felt a deep con nection with Ame rican h isto ry . I felt patriotic and proud . Th i nking back to that p rotest I find that I h ave gai ned a g reate r understa n d i n g of the i m portance of i n d i­ vidual voi ces in a democratic cou ntry. As a fu ture jou rnal ist, that is a responsi b i l ity I hope I never take l i g htly. •

Child's Fascination With French A Prelude To Fulbrigh



ttention, parents of n i ne-year-olds: you never know when one of your child's experiences w i l l h a ve a s i g n ificant i nflu­ ence on the rest of thei r l ives. Because M i chelle Ryan attended a two­ week s u m m e r French cou rse fo l l ow i ng fou rth g rade, she is a F u l b r i g h t Sch o l a r today. Rya n, a sen i o r at PLU, g rew u p i n nea rby Kent, Wash . , where she attended and g rad­ uated from Ke ntwood H i g h S c h o o l . A month or so ago her parents, W i l l iam and Carol Ryan, m oved to Aubu rn, j ust south of Kent. Even though her i ntroduction to French at age n i n e was brief, Ryan was taken by the language. " It is beautifu l," she sa id. For five years her i nterest remai ned on the back bu rner, as no other opportun ity for study presented itself. But she bega n taking French again i n n i nth g rade and has contin ued since. At PLU she has m ajored in F rench and English. Next fall she w i l l beg i n teaching Ameri­ can languag e and culture at a French p u b­ l i c schoo l . Location of the school has not yet been determ i ned. Si nce 1 975, PLU has beco me known as a home of potential F u l b right Scholars. Ryan is the 2 1 st PLU student to ea rn the p resti­ g ious awa rd in the past 1 6 years. Fulbright Scholarsh ips cover all expenses fo r a yea r of fo reign study. They a re probably the most widely known of the major academ ic scholarships. Most PLU Scholars h ave stu d ied in Ger­ many. One stud ied i n Norway, another i n Botswa na. Ryan i s the first to plan study i n F rance. Her fut u re goal is to teach French at the u n iversity level.

Two Kuwaiti st u dents at PLU a re anx­ iously awaiting a time when they can safe­ ly retu rn to their home land. Among the half m i l lion u.s. t roops serv­ ing in the G u l f, at least 1 1 a re d i rect ly affiliated with PLU . As a result of recent violent In ci dents in the Balt ics, the PLU portion of the Baltic student exchange was suspended, even as 1 2 Baltic students were on their way to the PLU ca mpus On campus, react ion to the events was mixed . There was a s m a l l , vocal a n t i-war d e m o n st ra t i o n , but mo st st u d e n ts exp ressed s u pp o rt of the troo ps, If not al ways the entire war effo rt . Q u estions were raised, as they were 20 years ago during V ietn am, about a potential m i l ita ry draft and conscientious object ion sta n ­ dards. On J a n . 1 5 President W i l l i a m Ri eke sent a memo to the ca mpus com m u n ity in which he spoke from his heart about the ho rrors of war a n d how the u n i v ersity m i g h t respond . First. he sa id, was to concentrate anew on attaining i nd ividual goals. "Whether st udent. fa cu lty or staff, each of us mu st recog nize that. as long as we remain at the u n i versity, the best contri­ bution we can ma ke to our cou ntry, and to the world, is doing better that wh ich we know how to do wel l . Educa t i o n is o u r business, and teach i n g and l e a r n i n g a re the vocations to which we a re ca lled'," he said. He added that it is i mportant to d iscuss openly and freel y di ffering viewp oi nts in reasoned , respectfu l and usefu l sett i ngs. One of a n u m ber of settings was a three­ hou r ca mpus sym posi um on the war Feb . 1 5 . More than a dozen faculty members, as well as cam p u s min isters and students, partici pated on the panel. The discussion


i n c l u ded h i storica l , cu ltu ra l and fo reign pol icy backg rou nd, environmental and eco­ nomic i m pacts of the war, and historical and moral p reced ents for response to agg ression. Abd u l l a h al Khorafi, one of PLU's Kuwaiti st udents, said that he "wh istled and j u m p ­ ed up and down" when he heard that the war had beg u n . "I am re l i eved , really," he sa id. "I feel l i ke Kuwait is now gOing to be l iberated from the Iraqis." AI Khorafi has been u nable to even reach h i s fa m i l y since the Aug. 2 Iraqi invasion, and does not know whether they a re safe. As a re sult of the l i beration effort. he hopes he will know soon , and w i l l be able to ret u rn to his cou ntry. As of early Feb ruary , n u rsing p rofessor S h i rley Aiken and eight PLU students have been dep loyed for m i l itary d uty in Saudi A ra b i a .

The active duty list also in cludes fo rmer n u rsing p rofessors Debbie Joh nson a nd M a ren Stavig, and B i l l Page, the h usband of n u rsing professor Phy l l i s Page. Svajus Asadauskas, one of the exchange st udents from Lith uan ia, came to PLU o n l y a few days after violence h a d eru pted i n the cap ital city of V i l n i u s. H e said he saw the Jan. 1 3 Soviet crackdown with his own eyes, and among the 1 3 dead and more wou nded were some of his friends. A Latvian exchange student, J u r is Bariss, left a p regn a nt wife at h is home near Riga, the Latvian ca pital.

Vo lu nteer Center Brings Com m u n ity Proj ects, Wi l l i n g St ud ents Together By Heidi Berger enry David Thoreau once sa i d , "The best gift is a portion of thyself." The Volu nteer Center at PLU was estab­ l i shed two years ago to h e l p students sea rch i ng fo r opportun ities to vol unteer, to put their many gifts to use. Located i n the Ca mp us M i nistry office, i t in forms stu­ dents and staff about a variety of on and off campus vol unteer opportun ities . Coordi nators a re seni ors Heather M ac­ dona ld and Heidi Berger Founded in itially with a gra n t from Aid Association for Lutherans and d i rected by g ra d u ate And rew Schott, the Center is now s u p po rted by the un i versity. In the future it may be funded by the National Services Act. which prov ides S25 m i l l i on to help col leges and u n iversities create or expand vo lunteer programs. University pastor Martin Wel ls, the Cen­ ter advisor, has been i nvol ved in the vision from the beginn ing. "Service to the com­ mun ity, academic enrichment a n d student development is what the Volunteer Center is all about." he sa id. There seems to be no lack of vo l u n teers.

Endowment Is Key TO Long Range Fina ncial Stability Endowment - How does it ben­ efit the donor, and the u n iversi .. ty? " Donors a re becom i ng m o re soph isticated i n t h e i r u n d e r· sta nding of endowment funds " sa id Ed Larson, PLU d i rector of planned g iving. That u nd e rsta n d i n g corre.. sponds to the increased u nder· standing of savi ngs genera l ly , he pointed out. As Americans have become m o re p rosperous, they h a ve i n c rea s i n g l y needed to know more a bout the value of their money and how their mon .. ey . can p ro d u ce m o re money, giving them i ncomes som et i m es several t i m es m o re t h a n t h e i r orig inal i n vestment "That is a lso t h e n at u re of endowment" sa id Larson. S i m ply put, it is a u n iversity savings or i nvestment accou nt. The u n i ver· sity spends only the i nterest on the face val u e of the accou nt. For m uch of its h i story, Pacific Lutheran U n iversity fou n d its i m med i a te f i n a n c i a l needs of such a p reSS i n g n a t u re that donations of i m med iate operat­ ing funds were e mphasized and ca pital funds were ra ised for bu i l d i ngs as th ose needs a rose. Today, i nst itu t i o n a l sta b i l ity is such that more attention can be p laced on longer ra nge goals. "When a person do nates to the endowment fu n d , the g i ft w i l l work For the u n iversity for­ ever," he sa i d . "For exa m p l e, if a person donated 1 2,000 to the genera l fund this year, we could g ive 1 2 5 1 ,000 scho l a rs h i ps, but then the m oney wou l d be gone.

If they do nate $ 1 2 ,000 to the endowment fund, we m i ght g ive o n l y one schol a rs h i p t h i s yea r. But we w i l l give that scholarsh i p every year, i nd efin itely. After 1 0 o r 1 2 years we w i l l have g iven scholars h i ps equ a l i ng the face value of the g ift, but we wi l l not h ave touched the principa l . " There a re now scores o f these scholars h i ps awa rded every yea r, often in the name of the donor or a loved one, he explained . E m p hasis on endowment d u r­ ing the past decade has paid d iv­ i dends. When the decade of the '80s began and PLU's fi rst la rge sca l e c a p i t a l/e n d ow m e n t g ot u n d e rway, PLU's e n d ow m e nt was approxi mately 51 m i llion. At m id-decade, at the close of the "Sh a ri ng in Strength" ca m pa i g n , the fu nd had reached $ 5 m i l l i on. At the conclusion of the cur­ rent cente n n i a l fund drive, the e n d ow m e n t f u n d w i l l h a ve reached 5 1 0 m i l l i o n . I n addition, p l a n ned and d ef e r red g i fts h a v e b e e n rece ived f o r the past seve ral yea rs at a rate of more thar.l 51 m il l i o n a yea r, which i nd i cates to La rson the extent to which PLU s u p po rt e rs have l e a r n e d t h e i m portance o f i nterest o n thei r i n vestments, whether before o r after a gift i s g i ven to the u n i ­ versity.

I n t h e vacu u m of not knowing, the c h i l dren of God stru g g l e for peace a n d for peaceful relationshi ps with oth­ ers. I have n ever k n own first­ hand the ravages of war, and so m ay b e u n q u a l i fied to s p e a k a bout it, yet I choose t o d o so u n d e r t h e topic of " W h at is peace? It is the prom ise of secu­ rityl" Psalm 91 , vv. 1 -8.

Presiden t William 0. Rieke Psalm 9 1, vv. 1 -8. Meditation for Bishop 's Con voca­ tion, Region I, SW Synod, Wash., Jan­ uary 1 8, 1991

'A s we struggle for hope in this vola tile tim e, we remember tha t s tability comes through engaging in our common purpose together'

1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the A lmighty. 2. I will sa y of the Lord, He is m y refuge and my fortress. my God, in him will I trust. 3. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fo wler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4. He shall cover thee with his fea th­ ers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be th y shield and buckler. 5. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6. Nor for the pestilence that walk­ eth in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth a t noon­ day. 7. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at th y righ t hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8. Only with thine e yes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

I fi rst hea rd those verses near­ ly 50 years ago. The setti ng was the occasion of my oldest b roth­ er's leavi n g for m i l i ta ry service in World War II. My father was the reader. The meaning of the promise to a not yet teen-aged boy was c l e a r a n d a bsol u t e : there was t h e cert a i n prom ise of no harm. (vv. 3-6l. At the co nclu­ sion of the war, my b rother and fa m i l y were i n d eed safe and u n harmed ph YS ical ly. B u t what of the 4 5 m i l l ion oth ers who d ied in World War II? The qu es­ tion was n ever f u l l y resolved, never fu lly answered . While there were a few su bse­ q u e n t m o m en t a ry occa sions when Psa l m 91 c a m e to m i nd,

the second most im portant time for me was when I was i n the mi d-thirties, then Dean of Medi­ cine at the U n iversity of Iowa, and our cou ntry was engaged i n t h e V i et n a m War. T h e sett i ng and the occasion were that I was now read i ng to my own ch i l d ren, and trying to keep our hospital open am idst riots a nd fire_ Was t h e meaning of the prom ise rel­ eva nt then? W h i l e I read and i ntoned it clearly and resolutely to my children, I doubted it. The bl ack-an d-wh ite of my chi ldh ood v a l u e s w a s b e i n g s ev e r e l y stra i n ed by the re a l i ti es: t h e cri m i nal a n d cruel brea kdown of law and the certa i n presence of violence and i nj u ry . The outcome was neither clea r nor decisive. Somehow the times passed and life went o n . But it was never to be t h e same agai n. Most of t h e old forms, b e l i efs a n d behaviors had ch anged. The question of the mea n i ng of the prom ise was u n a nswe red ; the defi n i t i o n a n d reso l u t i on were simply deferred. Now for the third major time i n my life, I engage the words of the promise once aga i n . The set­ ting and occasion are different: age; experience, position and responsi b i l ity all g ive a new per­ spect i ve . The mean i n g of the prom ise is to give enough sta bi l i­ ty a n d secu rity to a l l so that every me a n i ng ca n be safely expl ored . The major outcome of t h e Per­ sian G u lf War we awa i t . The i m med iate and partial outcome as it relates to Pacific Lutheran U n iversity was add ressed in a memora n d u m sent at the out­ break of the war to the enti re campus com mu ni ty. How do we add ress the som ber and fright­ ful topic of PLU and War? The Mi d-East crisis provides for all of us u r g e n t reaso ns to assess again our roles. What sh a l l the i n d i v i d u a l a n d the co m m u n ity and the i nstitution of PLU do? It is an outcome that in vites th ree specific actions. The fi rst is to con t i n u e what we are dOing, and to concen­ trate anew o n atta i n i n g t h e g o a l s that we h a v e s e t out to achieve. Whether student, facul­ ty or staff, we m u st recog n ize that, as long as we rem a i n at the un iverSity, the best contribution we can m a ke to our cou ntry, and to t h e worl d, is doing better 'that which we know how to do wel l . Education is our b usi ness, and teach ing a n d learn i n g a re the vocations to which we are ca l led. We m ust rem a i n a com­ m u n ity of l ea rners. As we strug­ gle for hope in this volatile time, we rem e m be r t h a t sta b i l ity comes t h rough enga g i ng in our

The seco nd is to recog n i ze that it is i m porta n t to d i scuss open ly a n d freely ou r d iffe r i n g viewpoi nts, a n d t o express o u r sup port o r oppOSition i n rea­ soned, respectful and usefu l set­ ti ngs.

It is knowing a bsolutely that the promise is secu re a n d con­ ti n u i ng.

M i lton Luther N esvi g (1 9 1 5-1 990) By Dr. Philip Nordquist centennial Historian (This is the 1 9 th article in a 20-part series)

I fi rst m et M i lt Nesvig in early December 1 9 5 2 . The occasion wa the fi rst basketball game of t h e seaso n . The opponent was natio n a l ly ra nked Seattle U n i ver­ sity and the game was pl ayed i n t h e o l d Seattl e i ce a rena . The basketball floor was laid over the ice in those days. Seattle U. was led by the famous O'Brien twi ns. They had put Seattle U. on the basketba ll map in the previous three years. I had fo ll owed the exploits of Sea ttle U . with great i ntEJest from La ke Stevens H igh School . Now I was a wid e-eyed freshman reserve on the PLC team playing agai nst the O' Briens. To say I was excited is to engage in u nd e r­ sta tement. At La ke Stevens H i g h School we h ad been t a u g h t g ood sportsma nsh i p. It was my i nten­ t i o n to con t i n u e that at PLC. I wa s u n d e rsta n d a b ly sho cked, therefore, to hear loud, a b usive, a n d w i l d l y p a rt i s a n s h o u t i n g from i m m ed i ately beh i nd the bench as the game got u n der way . It was aimed at the Seattle U. p l a y e rs - espec i a l l y t h e O' Briens - a n d add ressed thei r g rades, the fact that they were " hot dog," and m u c h else. The offi c i a l s were a lso pil l oried and t h e fact of favoritism beca use of rel i gious soli darity with Seat­ tle U. was frequently menti oned. I i m m ed i ately decided t h i s was n ot Lake Stevens play i n g G ran ite Falls. The ecu menical movement was not yet u nder way either. After a few m i n utes I t u rned rou nd to see who the chief and lou dest ma lefactor was. I saw a b a l d , ext reme ly red-faced naval officer with a chapl a i n's cross on h is lapel. After the game 'I was i nt roduced to M i lt Nesv i g . We re m a i ned friends for the next 38 years. M i lt was passionately devoted to P L U , i ts s t u d e nts, a l u m n i , c h o i rs, b a n d s , a n d a t h l e t i c teams. That devot ion ap pea red i n wonderfu l, somet i m es u n ex­ pected, often part isan , ways and was never fa r from the su rface. If ever a person found the right n iche i n l ife it was Milt Nesvig, the promoter and su pporter of PLU. He loved t h e i n st itution with u ncritica l passi on. I soon d iscovered other per­ sona l i ty tra i t s. M i lt loved to laugh and he laughed freq uent­ ly. He saw h u m o r in situations, l i ked horseplay, told (frequently a b om i n a b l e ) N o rweg i a n j o kes, and battled with l a u g hter the powers and p r i ncipa l i ti es t h at

read it. He had experienced too many little strokes. That was d is­ a p poi n t i n g . I wa nted to sha re the book with h i m and I wanted h i s measu red response. It was too late for that. As the centen n i a l yea r comes to an end I often find myself t h i n k i ng a b out M i lt. I m i ss his l a u g hte r, passion, ca ring, and friendsh i p . I m iss him at basket­ b a l l g a m es. I m i ss h i s s i n g u l a r concern f o r PLU. I ' m sure m a ny

of you have rich m e m o r i es of M i lt. Why don't you write them down and send them to me. I'll put you r letters in the Univers ity Arch i ves so that the next U n i ver­ sity h istorian ca n beg i n to make sense of t h e l ife and t i m es of M i lton Luther Nesvig a n d his ser­ vice to P L U . That service cut across seven decades and you find it everyw here . (Next time: advice to the next Uni­ versitv historian)

loomed up i n life. That's a pretty good strategy. Mi lt al so cared for people. The evidence is scattered across the g l ob e : African st u d en ts w h o l i ved i n t h e Nesvig house; finan­ cial aid so mehow acq u i red for needy students; u ncou ntable let­ ters and phone calls exp ressing concern, offe r i n g h e l p , extend­ i n g congratu lations; presence at wed d i ngs, ord i n a tion s, fu n e rals, and all other public events. M i lt's ext raord i n a ry m e m o ry must have been tied to his car­ i n g . He had the names, voca­ ti ons, exp l o its on cam pus, a nd fa m ily h istories of what seemed l i ke the entire a l u m n i association tucked away in his memory. He was rarely wrong. We all l i ke to be re m e m be red . M i lt made us feel i m portant. Relationsh ips were sometimes stormy with M i lt. One could find reasons to di sa g ree w ith h i m and a n g e r someti mes i ntruded into fri endship. But it neve r last­ ed very long nor seemed i m por­ tant in retrospect. M i lt was enormously su pport­ i ve of me and my act i vi t i es at PLU, both as a student and as a faculty mem ber.

15 Commen ts Getaway? No Way By Harvey J . Neufeld Vice President, Church Relations

Everyone needs t i m es apart. Apart from ro utine and d a l ly liv­ i ng . Apart from frustrations and the closeness of fam i ly. We need respite from C N N a n d miss i l e news, sorti es, casua lty cou nts and "on target" strateg ies. Even the tension of peace m a rc h es shou ld be left beh i n d . That is what my wife and I d i d . We cele­ brated Mart i n Luther K i n g day ca mpi ng "up nort h . " Y o u owe it t o you rself j u st once i n your l ife to visit Lynden, Wash. For a few moments, the H o l l a n d i s lh atmosphere t r a n s­ ports us to another world . . . . a world of order, cleanli ness, deco­ ra tive b u i l d i n gs and old fash­ i o n ed Dutch coo k i n g . Even the water trick l i n g down the snow pi les in the parki ng lots seems to be of glacial spri ng pu rity.

The relaxed atmosphere of the Dutch Ba kery Resta urant fits i n so well with our plans. For a few hours it works. No tel evision. N o rad io. No m eet­ i ngs. No phone. Ju st bea utifu l sunsh i ne, crisp clean a i r, and i n the even ing, cuisine of extraord i­ nary delicacy. There is even a troubador ser­ enad in g the guests, a Dutch m a n named Gotfried Lautebach. H e i s d ressed i n baggy p a n ts a n d wears a sai lo r's beret on h i s head. H e s i ngs sweet old songs, a ccom pa n y i n g h i m s e l f with a sweet old accord i a n . It is all very sweet and nice, this busi ness of being apart. Then, l i ke a scud m issi le, break­ i ng and tea ring the peace asu n­ der, come Gotfried's melancholy

words. He is s i n g i ng the fa mous tune of the great wars. The song of the tre nches. The song of homesickness. The song heard in the gloom of the i nfantryman's ni ght. " L i l i Marlene." H a u n t i n g ch i l d hood m e m o ri es seep i nto the peace of o u r eve­ n i n g . I remember when the d a i ly casualty cou nt began to include even our l ittle vil lage in Canad a. To this day I can recite In Flan­ ders Fields, The Poppies Crow. I remember my father com i n g to find me on the playing field so he cou ld wa lk home with me and tel l me about H i rosh i m a . Getaway . . .from war a n d stories of war? No way. One more time we pray for peace. O n e more t i m e i n o u r l ife. Maybe that is what getaways are su pposed to dO . . . lead us to prayer.

Educating Fo r Service By John Adix Interim Alumni Director

The sta mp that goes a l o ng with a Pacific Lutheran U niversi­ ty graduate is the sta mp of ser­ vice . It is no su rp rise that the theme for this cente n n i a l ce 'le­ b ration year has been: "Educat­ i ng for Service: Century 11." It is no s u rprise because, t h o u g h unstated, i t was t h e theme for Centu ry I. The PLU graduate is educated and tra i ned for s e r­ vice, It is no wonder that PLU g ra d u ates a re g a i nf u l l y emp loyed and co nti n u e to l ive fulfilled l ives. Lives ded icated to service a re most often rewa rded with sati sfaction and fulfi l l me nt. Exam ples abound! When the 1 00 recipients of the centennial award recog n i t i o n were h o n­ ored , the golden thread of the i r l ives w a s service. Represent i ng the broad est spectrum of pro­ fessional d iscipli nes and employ­ ment, service i n that d i sc i p l ine was the key ingredient. Whether the person was self-e m p l oyed, e m p l oyed, by g o ve r n m e nt, ch u rch, school o r corporat ion, each was able to use his/her life and education in service. I have early on been i m pressed with the des i re, willingness and enthusiasm reflected by a l u m n i in serving their a l m a mater. The Alumni Board continues to be the model and t h e i m petus as these 25 people give their time serving PLU and creating oppor-

tun ity for alu m n i to con nect i n service t o the u niversity. Al u m n i cha pters and g ro u ps a re active a ro u n d t h e wo r l d .

"Yes, I plan to leave PLU some property I own ." Over the years I have heard that p h rase m a ny ti mes. A n d , over the yea rs, I have witnessed t h e u n i versity receiving such property, even as it was prom ised . But there is an u nfortu nate twist to all this. I n many cases, the property which PLU eventu­ ally received cou ld have provid­ ed the donors som e added bene­ fits d u ri ng the i r 'l i feti m es. For exa m p l e, M r . a n d M rs. Jones own some property wh ich has g rown i n value over t h e years. Becau se o f t h i s g rowt h , any sale wou ld m e a n an im medi­ ate capital g a i n s tax. At t h e s a m e t i m e , rea l estate ta xes keep going up. The Joneses are ca ught i n the "ca n't afford to sel l it, ca n't affo rd to keep it" d i l e m m a . All they know is that some day they plan to give the property to PLU to be used to set up a scholarship. Mr. a nd M rs. Jones are prime candid ates for a deferred gift with lifet i m e i ncome. They coul d place their property i nto a chari­ table re mainder t rust, receiving a charitable contribution ded uc­ tion now, avoid the capital gains tax, and receive income for life. At their death , the un iversity would still receive the gift that the Joneses intended . However, t h i s gift wou ld have provided some l ifet i m e i n come and tax benefits for Mr. and M rs. Jones. Do you have an asset w h i ch y o u p l a n to leave to Pacific L u t h e ra n U n i versi ty? Pe r h a ps you might be inte rested in mak­ ing a deferred gift with l ifet i me i nco m e .

n l y p a rt n e rs h i p s a m o ng schools, fa m i l i es, corpo ra­ t i ons, busi nesses and govern­ ment agencies can begin to alle­ vi a t e t h e c r i s es i n p u b l i c ed ucation, accord i ng to J u d ith Bill i ngs. B i l l i ngs, the Wash in gton sta e s u pe r i n t e n d e n t for public i nstruction a n d a 1 96 1 PLU a l u m ­ n a , was t h e keynote speaker for he education sym posi u m that brought togeth e r leaders from educa t i o n , b u si ness, govern­ ment, the m i l i t a ry, co m m u n i ty services a n d the rel i g i o u s com­ m u nity. She asserted that the prob­ ' I ems facing schools a re societal p roblems that sch ools a re not equ i pped to solve a l one. Schools are be ing asked to dea l with the effects of many co m m u n ity tra u mas, and the st ruct u res and resou rces to do that a re n ot avail a ble, she ind icated. She added that schools are deal ing with the effects of bro­ ken fa mil ies, child ab use, dru gs, viol ence, u nem ployment, teen pregnancy, pove rty and a host of other societal problems. While there is no Single solu­ tion ' Bill ings offered one sugges­ tion as a step in the right d i rec­ t i o n : the t ra nsfo r m a t i o n of schools i nto year-a ro u nd neigh­ bo rhood learn i ng and acti vity centers as a means of dealing with mu ltiple neigh borhood and com m u n ity needs. "Ch i l d ren a n d fa m i l i es cou ld choose a mong tutoring, sports and recreation, arts and music, day care and ot her special activi­ ties," she sa id. Centers wou ld house not only ed ucators, but health ca re prac­ t i t i o ners, d a y ca re p ro v i d e rs, counse l o rs a n d ot h e rs . T h e i r

One was an education symposium; one was a business symposi �m. But unin ten tionally, both called atten tion to the need for solutions to problems faced by the U.S. public education system. "Developing Partnerships for Tomorrow" was the last of four PLU centennial year subthemes. The theme was the concePtL!al basIs for an April symposium sponsored by the School of Education and the 15th ann ual Interna tional Business Conference, sponsored by the School of Business Administra tion. . . Both events featured a variety of pro vocative speakers and discus­ sion groups focusing on the challenges of the fu ture. *

efforts cou l d be bolste red by high school and m i d d l e school stude nts who, as p a rt of t h e i r ed u cati onal experience, devote part of their day to assisting the professiona ls, B i l l i n gs p o i nted out. Such a model wou ld req u i re the support of entire co mm u ni­ ties, she i n d icated . Gove rnmen­ tal agencies could utilize school faci l ities as satellite offices. Busi­ nesses could allow employees a ce rta i n n u mber of hou rs a month to p u rsue center vo l u n­ teer activities. "Without the sup port of entire co m m u nities, we may become i d l e bystanders as o u r schools d rown in the w e l l i n g sea of despa i r t h a t afflicts fa r too many American fa mil ies today," she said. "School rest ruct u ring is not the a nswer. It is only part of the eq u ation, a nd mu st occ u r in conj u nct i o n w i t h co m m u n ity restructu ring." She ca lled attention to a Clark Cou nty resou rce bank t hat is one exa m p le of pa rt n e rs h i p development. The b a n k offe rs classroom spea k e rs, c o m p a ny tours, hosts for student i nterns, mentors for teachers or stu­ dents, s u rp l u s equ i pment and m uch more. Add itional informa­ tion about the bank is ava i l able from her office, she said. B i l l i n gs also l a u ded PLU as a " p rem iere ed ucational in stitu­ tion" conti nually seeking ways to contribute to the sol ut ion of com m u n ity p roblems - l i ke this foru m - b r i n g i n g t o g et h er diverse sectors of o u r co mm u n i­ ty to discuss what it w i l l take to su rvive." •




have advanced technology, you have to have edu­ cation and resea rch . Am erican industry must invest more mon­ ey in education," said Sang Lee, professor of management at the University of Nebraska. Lee was one of the feat u red spea kers at t h e 1 5t h a n n u a l International Busi ness Confer­ ence sponso red by t h e P L U scho 1 o f Busi ness Ad m i n i st ra­ tion in May. "America needs a better fou n­ dation, b u i l t a ro u n d i m p roved mathematics a n d science educa­ tion," he conti n ued . "You mus have partnerships between b � sl­ ness, government and education to arrive at long-term strate­ gies." Enno von Loewenstern, Bonn ed ito r of the conservative Ger­ man newpaper Die Welt, wasn't convinced that American know­ how is lacki ng. He p l aced t h e blame o n priorit ies. " Has Am erican tech n o l o�y declined?" he asked . "Yo u r m i l i­ tary technology in the G u lf War worked extremely wel l . You may think that American schools a re bad, but American technology IS sti l l tops. . " If you h ave th ese fa ntast ic elect ron i cs, why can't t h ey be appl ied to consu mer ma rkets? Who gets the top engi neers General Motors or the mi litary?" he asked. He noted that one obstacle to g reater corporate i n vo lvement in local edu cation, or com m u n i­ ties, is the t rend toward i nterna­ tional corporations. "These cor­ porations don't serve nations," he sa id. "They serve custom ers. That is the only way to su rvive in the global ma rket." He also in sisted that the U.S.

has to reform its econo m ic deal­ i ngs with other nations. "The U .S. doesn't have a t rade pol icy," he asserted, noting t h a t U .S . i nterest g roups pitted agai nst each other make development of a coherent pol icy d ifficult. On a b ri g hter note, Loewen­ stern pointed to the pote n t i a l n e w economic m a rkets i n east­ ern E u rope, the Soviet Un ion, and even China. "Look east of Bonn a nd B e r­ l i n ," he sa i d . "400 m i l l ion new customers hu n g ry for consu mer goods. And, God willing, if China ever opens up, there a re u ntold riches for the rest of the world ." O n a c a u t i o u s n ot e , he observed that East Germans a re demanding l i ving conditions rela­ tively equa l to West Germa ns, a demand he bel ieves is u nreal is­ tic. "Pa rt of the good l ife is you h ave to create it y o u rself," he said. "You have to put you r nose to the g rindstone." Loewenstern suggested that rather than West Germany or the U.S., approp riate models for new market econom ies mi ght be fou n d in the Far East : "Korea, Taiwan and Singapore, who did it on their own ." As Lee poi nted out. event u a l success will depend on t h e ener­ gizing and harnessing of h u m a n creat i v ity o n a p r e v i o u s l y u n p recedented scale. He empha­ sized, "It can't a l l be done by ma nag ers. Everyone has to be • involved ."

Wi l l iam Rieke Annou nces Reti rement n era at Pacific Luth'e ran University is nearing its end. Dr. William Rieke, 60, p resident of PLU for the past 16 yea rs, announced his retirement effective June 30, 1 992, at the April meet i ng of the PLU board of regents. "The past 1 6 yea rs have been a period of continuing growth for the u n i versity. We are entering a new phase in o u r history, a phase that w i l l develop new areas," Ri eke said. He continued, "It is appropriate at this pOi nt, as we make the transition from one long-range plan to another, to identify per­ manent long-term leadersh i p." Projects in the near term futu re, Rieke ind icated, include plan n i ng and im plemen­ tation of the next m u lt i-year endowment ca mpaign, fund ing and construction of a b u s i n ess school fa c i l ity, a n d p l a ns fo r futu re direction. "A new leader should have the option of being pa rt of the g rowth that w i l l be determi ned," he added. Du ring Rieke's final yea r of tenu re, the university will break grou nd for the new Ma ry Baker Russel l Music Center and com­ plete its cu rrent five-year plan. Plans for major changes i n cu rricul u m structure a re also well underway. Dr. David Wold, chai rm a n of the PLU board of regents, praised Rieke for giving the board a nd the u niversity "ti me for a smooth transition to the next era i n u n i­ versity life. "In so many ways Rieke has been identi­ fied with PLU, not only in its com m itment to academic excel lence but its relationsh ip with t h e chu rch a nd the co m m u n ity," Wold observed. 'We knew at some point h i s ten u re would come to a n end," Wold continued. "The board has ve ry m ixed fee l i ngs. We affirm h is right to make this decision even as we look forward to his leadershi p this com i n g year. The method of tranSition moves us forward in a ve ry positive way." Rieke has been a national leader in inde­ pendent higher ed ucation. National ly, he has been a member of the board of the National Association of I n dependent Col­ leges and Un iversities and served as presi­ dent of the Lutheran Educat ional Confer­ ence of North America. Regional ly, he has chai red the Washi ng­ ton Friends of H i gher Ed ucation and is a member of the board of the In dependent Colleges of Washington Inc. Perso nal honors have been m a n y . PLU named its new science b u i ld i ng i n his hon­ or in 1 98 5 and an auditorium was named I n his honor at the U n i versity of Kansas School of Medi ci ne, where he served as

Du ring h i s tenu re, PLU has g rown d ra­ matically. In fact. nea rly two-t h i rds of all PLU graduates in its 1 01 yea rs of existence have received their deg ree from D r. Rieke.

Jan Carlzan

One of the world's highest­ ran k i n g Lutherans, the general secretary of the Lutheran World Federation, was the reci pient of a n h onora ry doctor of d i v i n ity deg ree from PLU April 9 . T h e honor was conferred u pon Dr. G u n nar Staalsett of Geneva, Switzerland, at a Lutheran pasto­ ral conference in Vancouver, B.C. The f o l l ow i n g da y Staal sett spoke at PLU u n der auspices of the u n i versity'S H a u g e Lectu re Series.

J a n C a r l z o n , p resi d e n t a n d chief execut ive officer of Sca ndi­ navian AirHnes System, received an h o n o r a ry doctor of l aws degree from PLU May 1 . The honor was conferred by PLU President William Rieke. T h e cit a t i o n read in p a rt, " I n herent i n (Ca rlzon's) lead er­ ship is a strong com m it m ent to the worth and potential of each i nd i v i d u a l . H i s ext raord i n a ry a cco m p U s h m ents h ave been ach i eved by m ot i v a t i n g a n d mobilizing peopl e. "Th i s h o n o r confi rms PLU's appreciation for and admiration of ma nagement 'with a h u man face,'" Rieke said. Fol lowing the ceremony, Ca rl­ zon del ivered a l e c t u re, Moments of Truth. The speech dea lt with m a nagement at the grassroots level and is also the subject of a book a u t h o red by Carlzon. Accord ing to the Ne w York Times, "SAS has one of the best reputations for service in the i ndustry. Its chairm a n , Jan Carl­ zon, is credited with t u r n i n g the a i rl ine around i n the early 1 980s, ea rning a reputation as 'the Lee lacocca of Europe.'"

Peace, Justice and Human Righ ts in the Third World was

the topic of Staalsett's address at PLU, which fol l owed a recep­ t i o n and d i n n e r fo r PLU's h o n­ ored guest. A Norweg ian theolog i a n , Staal­ sett came to LWF in 1 9 8 5 . He previously was general secretary of both the C h u rch of N o rway Cou ncil on Foreign Relations and the Norwegian B i ble Society. Si nce 1 9 84 he h a s been a m e m b e r of t h e N o b e l Peace Pri ze co m m ittee. He is a l so a member of the central a n d exec­ utive com m ittees of the World Cou n c i l of C h u rc h es a n d t h e execut ive co m m i ttee o f t h e U n ited Bi ble Societies.

T h e brief Gulf W a r i s over. One crisis is replaced by others in the vo latile Middle East. Kuwait has been freed, but what about the Kurds, the Shi'ites, the Palest i n­ ians and others? Attitudes wax and wane. Con­ cern for the Kuwaitis is replaced by concerns for other national and et h n ic groups . T h e larger crisis continues. But at PLU, the crisis di d have a per­ sonal ending fo r seve ral, one that was relat ively joyous. Abd u l l a AI-Khorafi was one of two Kuwaiti students at PLU this past year. H e comes from a pro m i nent Kuwait City fa m i l y; h is father is a ret i red m u l lah, one brother is chairman of Safe­ way i n K u w a it a n d a former member of parHament. He has two other brothers and two si s­ ters. I raq's i nvas ion of Ku wa it la st Aug. 2 began an 8 1 /2-month ordeal for Abd u l l a . From that time u ntil m i d-April '91 , he had no word about the fate of h is fa mi ly. Gl ued to television duri ng the wa r and its im medi ate after­ math, he had to endure the con­ t i n u i ng grisly stories co m i ng out of his hometand. Even afte r the war he had t r i ed to c a l l h o m e a n d was u nable to ma ke connections. Nearly two m o nths after the wa r ended, his phone rang and his mother was on the ot her end of the l i n e. True to f-o r m , she was worry i ng about h ow he was. The fam ily had been affected, t h o u g h his i m m e d i ate fa m i l y was safe. H i s mother had been ha rrassed, and the fa m i ly lost two cars and other belongi ngs. It had been worse for relatives.

For se veral years 58 north west L u theran congregations have been supporting Namib ian stud en ts studying at PL U A m ong seven enrolled this past year were two who completed their studies and gradua ted in May Kauna Ben Shin­ genge, left, and Kuu va Kongeli. They return to their homeland to serve, respectively, in international rela­ tions and pharmacy

Abdulla AI-Khorafi

An uncle was among the dead, cousins had been abused. Abd ul la'S broad smile reflected his joy as he looked forward to the end of the spring semester and a trip home to visit. He w i l l retu rn i n t h e fa ll t o com plete two more years at PLU. A politica l sc ience m ajor, he hopes to eventu a l ly return to help rebu ild Kuwait. If AI-Khorafi is representati ve of Arab senti ment, both the U.s. and Israel gained prestige i n the Arab world as a resu lt of the G u lf War. "Arabs never ca red about Americans, and Israel was our enemy," he said. He was i m p ressed with the Israeli restra i nt and g ratefu l to the u.s. and ot her a l Hes for com­ ing to his country's aid. PLU . held a welcome home reception for nursing professor Shi rley A i ken and five of the eight PLU students deployed in Saudi Ara bia d u ri ng the war. •

more matu re u nd e rsta nd­ ing of rel i gion is the legacy David Knutson has bestowed on thousands of PLU a l u m n i and cu rrent stu dents d u ring h i s 2 2 years o n t h e u n iversity reli gion faculty. Kn utson retired in May at age 54, partly d u e to his cont i n u i ng struggle with d iabetes and heart d i sease, but partly a lso to g i ve the rel i gion depa rtment more options as it structu res itself for the future. Cou rses t a u g h t by K n u tson over the years mi rror the image of PLU as a place that confronts the ti meless questions of life i n the context of l ibera l arts ed ucation. "Some stud ents come to PLU with a su perficial u n dersta n d i ng of religion and the role it plays i n h u m a n l i fe," sa i d Kn utso n . "One group m a y believe they are fa m i l i a r with Ch ristian ity, but thei r image is that conveyed by television preachers. "Other st udents ha ve stro ng re l ig i o u s bel iefs, but t h ey have not examined them critica l ly." He added, "When students get into rel i gion cou rses th ey find there is more than they antici­ pated when they started out." R e l i g i on cou rses revea l t h e d i versity o f theological thought. and how rel igion appl ies to prob­ lems of evil and h u m an suffer­ ing in the world, he i n d i cated . "Religion should a d d ress the enduring q u estions and basic va lues of life, and their re lation­ s h i ps to social and p o l i tical issues," K n u t so n cont i n u e d . "There is a whole mainstream of re lig ious thought where there is fr u i tful, healthy d ia l ogue. Too many people see only the fu nda­ mental i st image, or the rejection of the fu ndamenta l i st i m age. Often people that ca l l t h em­ selves atheists, for exa m ple, a re not so m u ch d e n y i n g God as they are a simpl istic God image." Knu tson exp ressed h ,i s g rati­ t u d e fo r the o p p o rt u n ity to teach at a u n i versity com m itted to free a n d open i n q u i ry, b u t where t h e Ch rlistian tradition is also respected and al ive. "There is an attitude of care and concern that typifies a lot of people here," he sa id. "That. along with the effort to be aca­ dem ical ly excellent. is a g reat com b i nation.
