Women In Russia: For Those Wit out Families, Life Is Bleak f several generations can live together or take care of one another, they can get by in Russia; otbers, without a family network are rviving in miserable onditions, or dying. The observation was made by Adena Sementchouk, a Russian administrative assis­ tant at the Canadian embassy in Moscow. She is the wife of Alexei Kireyev, a former high­ ranking Soviet economist who taught a course at PLU this summer. Both Sem ntchouk and Kireyev gave pre­ sentations during the PLU summer lecture eries. During a session entitled, "Women in Rus­ sia," Sementchouk used her own family as an xample of life in Russia today. One of their mother' Lives with them and takes care of the three-year-old grandchild while both parent are working. The mother receive.s a pension of 10,000 rubles ($10) a month from the state.

cores of families i n a ny commu nity could be nefit from cou nse l i ng , but most must do w ithout. They don't qualify for government programs, a nd they can't afford private services.

Founded 1 1 years ago, the Center is also a laboratory for graduate students learni ng marriage and family therapy . The foundi ng rationale was:

''They '

" At a ny given time there can be up to a hundred potential clients on a waiting list," York added. Clients are referred by maj or mental health centers, schools, probation officers, church­ es, and other clients, Why not expand?

If the program is so great, a nd so badly needed , why not double or triple its size? The PLU program remains virtually unique because other potential similar therapy edu­ cators shy away from the many possible pit­ fal l s, problems a nd work l oad i nv olved in running a clinic as a laboratory , Even York a nd Storm look whimsi cally at one another occasionally as if to say . "Why are we doing this'?' , During the decade, the number of full-time graduate students in the program has fluctuat­ ed between 25-35, according to Y rk. The professors recently asse ed the program for l ong-range planning purposes, and e ti mated t hat they could " stretch" up to 45-48 stu­ dents with no increase in full -t ime faculty or facilities.

M ost M FT graduate programs that sponsor clinics rely on their student body for clients. They have neither the numbers nor the real world variety fou nd at the PLU clinic . Nor does the concept fit neatly i nto com­ mon professorial c oncepts of professional routine a nd educational framework. "We have two semesters of coursework before stu­ dents begi n cou nseli ng," said Storm . " After that, i t ' s learn, then do; learn, then do. Stu­ dents have millions of questions. Some edu­ cators aren' t c omfortable w ith that lack of structure. " As students move through the program they have i nternships at other c ommunity age n­ cies. "They are i n demand , because they have direct experie nce w ith clients, " said Storm. And they are i n demand when they gradute for the same reason. Over 60 percent have j ob offers before they graduate, though the j ob market is present l y eaker than nor­ mal .

The conference . " Partnersh i p for Progre : A US-NIS Conti r­ ence on Democracy and the Mar­ ket Economy , " will be h e l d at Wa hington U niversity in S1. Lou­ i , Mo. , Oct. 1 5- 1 6 . , . Rei n forcing the p rocess of reform i n these states is one of my 'ghest foreign policy priorities , " said Clinton in a Sept. 20 letter to Brue . "As part of our program of upport, we are working to pro­ mote business education and entre­ preneurship and to transfer Ameri-

can know-bow and ingenuity through exchange program . " The invitation was al 0 extended by Richard Gephardt, Maj ority Leade r of the House of Represen­ tativ s, and Joseph Duffy , d irector of the U. S . Infonn tion Agency . They explained that the St. Lou­ is con ference will focus on ways in which the Executive Branch Congress and pr"vate se tor ca cooperate to maximize the impact of US-NIS exchange programs and minimize duplication and overlap .

Endowed Research Scholar Accounting profes or Judith A . Ramaglia has been awarded the Ernst & Young E ndowed Research Scholar A ward for 1 993 . The award was presented by Paul I:-L Stolz during a ceremony at the Col umbia Tower Club in Seattle Aug. 1 9 . Stolz is the for­ mer managing partner of E&Y ' s Telecommunications Consulting Practice. The annual research award is funded by interest from an endow­ ment established at PL U in 1 985 by partners and staff of the accounting firm . Those contribu­ tions have been matched by the Ernst & Young Foundation . Stolz, the founder of the endow­ ment, said, "In an effort to attract the finest possible college gradu-

ates to the accounting profession, this endowment was establi hed to recognize those dedicated to excel­ lence in accounting research. Dr. RamagJ ia has contributed signifi­ cantly to tbe uccess of the PLU accounting progra m , which is nationally recognized . " Now in h r 1 2th year on the PLU faculty , Ramaglia directs the accounting program and played a lead role in the recent successful effort to gain renewal of national accreditation by lhe American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. Ramaglia plans to use her research funds to analyze cost reporting at schools similar to PL U to determine how they track costs of projects that don' t readily show cost effectiveness.

PLU Fulbright Scholar Plans Year Of St dy In Venezuela

Mark Rockwell and John Oakley demonstrate their jack-powered vehicle for Odyssey advisor Helmi Owen . The covered version was designed for perfor­ mance; the ship configuration won the style competition .

Student Inventors Excel In National Odyssey Competition Three PLU students can look back on the Odyssey of the Mind World competition at the Universi­ ty of Maryland this summer and remember, "We beat MIT . " The students were Mark Rock­ well, a senior from Graham , Wash . ; John Oakley , a senior from Mill Creek, Wash. ; and Hans Meyer, a sophomore from Aurora, Colo. Indeed, their entry , which car­ ried out the competition's require­ ment to build an operational vehi­ cle powered by a jack, did defeat a team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology , and several others in the annual national competition. In fact, their vehicle placed first

in style points, fourth in spontane­ ous competition and fifth overall among nine finalists. A misunder­ standing about rules cost them about 50 points and a second place finish. Odyssey of the Mind is a nation­ al educational program intended to challenge students to think cre­ atively and use all the knowledge they have acquired to solve specif­ ic problems.

Jack Peterson of Issaquah , Wash . , a May graduate of PLU , is studying in Venezuela this year under auspices of a Fulbright Scholarship. Peterson is the 28th PLU gradu­ ate to earn a Fulbright in the past 1 8 years. A Fulbright Scholarship is one of the most prestigious scholar­ ships a college student can receive. Set up in 1 945 by former Arkansas Senator William Ful­ bright, the scholarship covers all tuition, travel and expenses for a year of study in a foreign country . Scholars are selected on the basis of academic and professional qualifications, as well as their abil­ ity and willingness to share ideas and experiences with people of diverse cultures. Peterson, who looks forward to a career in government service, is an advocate of international study for all students . He previously studied in Cuernevaca , Mexico , and Venezuela. Back in Venezuela this coming year, he plans to study environ­ mentally sensitive development projects. At PLU Peterson majored in Spanish and Global Studies. "Knowledge of the Spanish lan­ guage is becoming more critical , not only in our country but in oth­ er parts of the world , " he said.

Jack Peterson

He has high praise for three pro­ fessors at PLU who he calls his mentors : history professor Jack Bermingham , anthropology pro­ fessor Greg Guldin, and Fulbright advisor Rodney Swenson. He is the son of Joseph and Stephanie Peterson, both Issaquah educators. Joseph is a 1 967 PLU alumnus.

Campus Academic Festivals Showcase Student work ' 'I ' m continually impressed by the caliber of students attracted to PLU , " said psychology professor Brian Baird. The PLU Academic Festival is a new biannual campus-wide event intended to showcase the work of those students . Baird started the event last year; this year he is joined by two co-chairs, earth sci­ ences professor Jill Whitman and music professor Greg Youtz. This fall ' s festival , Friday and Saturday , Dec . 3-4, will feature forums , presentations, displays, demonstrations, exhibits, musical performances, poetry readings and many other events . To showcase the festival it is scheduled to coin­ cide with a public lecture and a Christmas Festival Celebration concert that will increase the num­ bers of potential patrons, Baird indicated. Prospective students are encour-

aged to attend Dec. 4 for festival events and special financial aid workshops and campus tours . The second festival of the year will be held May 6-7 to coincide with Family Weekend, the Q Club banquet, a Board of Regents meet­ ing and an alumni meeting , said Baird. The first in the new festival series was held last spring . "We hope this event will become a tra­ ditional part of the PLU culture, " said Baird. "It is an opportunity for everyone to share in one anoth­ .. er's accomplishments . " "It's an interesting place both to learn and to teach , to share ide­ as, " he added . More information is available by calling Marla Henderson at 206-535-74 13.

Aids Tacoma Safety Initia ·ve A Tacoma srudy on public safety conducted by PLU s Center for Social Research fou nd that city residents feel less safe , in general, over the past decade , but that a majority also still feel safe in their own neighborhoods. A total of 1 1 8 interviews were conducted among residents of a variety of Tacoma neighborhoods, as well as community leaders . The study was commissioned to help determine how the city will use about $3 million in new crimi­ nal ju tice funding , according to city pokes person Dan Voelpe l . Voelpel i s a 1 983 PLU alumnus. Half the new money comes frorn

the state; the other half from the county through a one-tenth cent sales tax. Among the- recommendation from survey respondents were: * Increased community respon­ sibility ; * More leadership from the city to encourage community involve­ ment; * More police officers and an expansion of the community-ori­ ented policing (COP) program; * More support ior families; * Domestic violence education; * Stiffer or alternative senten e for criminals; * Re ponsi1Jie media coverage�

Faces Of The Global Human Family Is Theme Of Art Exhibit


Former Faculty

Fa ces of the Global Human Family is an exhibit of more than 500 oil portraits by artist and world traveler Ray " Padre" Johnson . The exhibit comes to the Scandi­ navian Cultural Center at PLU direct from an exhibit at the Royal Palace , Forbidden City, Beij ing, China. The exhibit preview open­ ing is Saturday, Nov . 6 at 5 p . m . ; the display continues through Nov .


Johnson, who travels with his exhibit, will present a free lecture about his work and travels Thurs­ day , Nov . 1 8 , at 3 p . m . , as well as two " brown bag lunch " sessions Nov . 16 and 1 7 . All sessions are in the Center, located on the lower level of PLU ' s University Center. Based in Cody, Wyo . , Johnson is

an award-winning western , wildlife and portrait artist who recently completed his 1 4 y ear Faces pro­ ject. That work has taken him t the people of 1 39 nations and nearly all of the cultures that still l iv e and work with the tools of their ances­ tral past. The United Nations hosted the premiere opening of the exhibit last December. The artist' s personal story is as fascinating as his art . A 1 966 grad­ uate of Gustavus Adolphus College in M innesota , he served as a Navy chaplain, including a stint w ith a "blac k beret" unit in Vietnam where he picked up his nickname, Padre. He has also been a human serv ices admini strator a nd a Lutheran parish pastor in several -

experimental and ecum nicaJ et­ tings . It was during a later peTiod of working as a c wman jn Wyoming th t his professional art c reer wa born. The PLU event is one of only 25 selected stops on the exhibit ' s world tour, which also includes the American S wedish I nstitute and Gustavus Adolphus. A reviewer has said , "Johnson ' s paintings give a sense o f the com­ mon bond of humanity . The por­ traits of the people he lived with reflect on his own positive outlook, acceptance and appreciation for the differences and similarities of the global family . " More information about the artist and exhibit is available by calling 535-7349.

12 The Presiden t

Savoring The Wonder Of Creation The hapeJ series this September was spent studying the creation story.




extracts from President Ander­ son 's homily given on Sept. 24.

By Loren

J . Anderson


elcome to the new chool year, to univer ity cha­ p /, and to this continuing series of reflections on the creation story . This theme is appropriat e becaus many of you are beginning a new chapter, others (like me) are beginning for a second try , and there are still others - like the faculty we honored at convocation - who are beginning their 26th year and more. But for all, we are ' ' I n the begin­ ning . " Who today cannot remember when you were struck by the won­ der and majesty of God 's creation? How many of you , like me, have come around the comer on one of these beautiful autumn days and been jolted to reality by the awe­ some grandeur of " The Moun­ tain. " How many of you have aris­ en early to see the morning sun j ump into orbit from beyond the ragged edges of the Cascades, or paused in the evening to see the sun slip quietly behi nd the Olympics? How many of you walk cross cam­ pus and find our yes drawn upward, upward to the highest reaches of the powerfu l fir? It makes me feel both mall and weak! By contrast, I am a child of the prairies . I am used to s ee i n g for m il es and I find freedom in the absence of trees , mountains , lakes , house and people. l love the open­ ness, the barenes that Ne ws week calls " America 's Outback. . There is an incredible vastness to the land, a sense of unlimited pace . 11 is a place where the winds are free to tr vel, the wildlife is free to roam, and where God' presence is found in . imple oil and sky . God reated it all ! And when we encounter creation . I believe we ctiscover something about God. While nature i not God, it reveal God - Jusl as a home reveals its builder. j ust as a book reveals its author. Ye t the wonder of God s c re­ ation is all about us. Our senses are dulled, we really don ' t even see it; we seldom take time to tudy it, and

certainly we fail to appreciate it. In the mountains and the forest, I learn about God ' s appreciation fo r beauty and the dramatic ; in the prairies , I discover vastness and simplicity , a kind of clarity of pur­ pose. When I confront God ' s creation - when I try to understand both its most obvious majesty and its most elusive mystery - I am led inexo­ rably from the simple to the com­ plex , from the known to the unknown, from questions of fact to matters of faith.


Overb y e ,



" Who' s A fraid of the Big Bad Bang , " a recent Time Magazine essay, wrote, " The currency of sci­ ence is not truth but doub t . And paradoxically, faith. " Pacific Lutheran University was planted here 1 04 years ago , as a place where we might gather each autumn - to learn to begin a new understanding thr ugh the wonders of God ' s creation and every facet of it! We are called to leaOl and apply the be t ies ons of I istory , to seek ut the most profound theories of the social sciences, to apply the most sophisticated p rinciples of laboratory study , and then to travel the road toward knowledge that leads from truth to u ncertainty , from doubt to faith . A close friend and former Har­ vard professor shared with me his observation that " the discovery that what we thought was true is now uncertain leads, in the absence of faith, only to cynicis m . " While I believe he may have overstated the case, his observation is one reason why places like PLU are so impor­ tant. The search for knowledge inevitably leads to the u nknown, to those ultimate questions that are a matter of faith. Overbye asserts that no empirical

theory can tell us what we want to know most: why the universe exists; why there is something rath­ er than nothing ; whether or not our lives have meaning ; whether or not God loves us . I n those questions we discover that, as a c hurch-related university , we are both gifted and freed in a very pecial wa . Gifted to push the furthest boundaries of knowledge and understanding to test the limits of our intelligence, and freed as children of grace to publicly d is­ cuss the most controversial issues , to ask the most difficult questions, to share openly about matters on which we disagree . God created it all . And in savor­ ing the wonder of creation we come to know the God who loves us.

Developmen t

1 993 Tax

Act Highlights depending on the amount of a tax­ payer's income . Here the new rate is applied if pr visional income is more than $34 ,000 for singles and $44,000 for couples. The maximum gift and estate tax rates had dropped to 50 % on Jan. I , 1 993 . However, the new law re tore retroaclively to Jan . 1 , 1 993 the 53 % rate for ta xable transfer from $2 .5 to 3 . 0 mi l l ion , and 55 % for those over $3.0 mil­ Ii n. Proper financial and estate plan­ ning can oftentime result in sig­ nificant tax savings. For example. a gift of an appreciated asset avoids capital gains taxes while still providing a charitable contri­ bution deduction for the full fair market value of the asset. Or, such a gift may be able to provide you and/or a loved one with lifetime income, with an eventual gift to PLU . If you would like more informa­ tion on ways that might assist you in your financial/estate situation, please contact: Edgar Larson , Director o f Charitable Estate Plan­ ning, PLU , Tacoma, WA 98447 ; 206-535-7420 or 1 -800-826-0035 .

PL U President Loren Anderson, right, visited recently with supporters in Odes­ sa, Wash . From left, Al and Janet Fink (both '53) Bill Parrish and Al Scheibner. The Finks are Q Club mem bers and Al is a fonner Regen t; Parrish has created an

endowed scholarship in memory of his wife, Katherine, and Scheibner has set up a gift annuity.

After months of debating and political give-and-take a new tax act was signed Aug . 6. Virtually every Amen an will be impacted in one way or another by this leg­ islation. Higher incom taxpayer will feel a major jolt in that this new tax bill created two new tax brack­ ets , 36 % and 39 . 6 % . The 36 % rate begins for single people at $ 1 1 5 , 000 and for couples at $ 1 40,000 .

Beginning in 1 994, income tax must be paid on as much as 85 % of Social Security benefits ,

New Students Receive Q Club Scholarships By David L. Berntsen Director of Development

Q Club members generously continue to help keep PLU acces­ sible to deserving students. Pro­ ceeds from Club giving is up 1 5 . 2 percent for the calendar year through September. These unre­ stricted annual fund gifts are very important to students and to the university . *

* *

A marvelous gift of $50,000 was given to the Q Club Endow­ ment this summer by the Sheffels family of Eastern Washington in memory and honor of Louis and Lydia Sheffels . Q Club Endow­ ment funds are added to the un i­ ver tty " general endowment; gifts of $4,000 or m re will permanent­ ly endow a Q C lub membership in an individual's honor or memory for the long-t rm wel l-being of the university. *

Second year Q Club president Don Reiman announced that our newest Q Club director is Ray Dally. Ray is a Puyallup builder and apart­ ment owner. His wife , Deanna, attended PLU, as did his daughter Nikki ' 85 and his son, Steve '89.

New And Upgraded Q Club Memberships

* *

For the first time in the 22-year history of the Q Club, the univer­ sity pecifically provided over $500,000 (of the total $ 1 . 1 million Q Cl ub gifts) for talented and needy first year students. This will also help students know more directly what Q Club is and how the 2 , 1 00 Q Club members are helping them . *


It is a pleasure to note that 1 70 PLU faculty and staff belong to the Q Club at various levels . On the last two days of September, two staff people increased to the Fellow level and another increased to the Senior Fellow level.

'" *

It is excit ing to report that

another CbalJenge Fund has been e tab)' bed to h lp the university ' s annual fund and Q Club . The donors will match increases to the alumni annual fund and Q Club. For example, if a person gave $250 last year and will contribute $350 this year, the extra $ 1 00 will be matched. This is a particularly important time to help the univer­ sity and the students who want to develop their God-given talents at this special place.

Moving Forward

By Leigh Erie President, Alumni Association

It is that time aga irt when the reigns of the alumni presiden y and ex.ecutive committee change . Change has been a common occur­ rence recently at PLU with our new univer ity president, Dr. Lor­ en A nder. on ; with our new vice president for development and uni­ ver ity relations, Dr. Jan BrazzeU ; with our new interim director of alumni and parent relat ions, Ruth Anderson ' 65 , and the oth e r a d mi n i trati ve ch anges . Some­ times change can stunt growth. Such i acceptable becau e of "transition. Thl is not the ca e in you r Alumni Association or w ith PLU . The alumni president serves for two years, and is supported by a first VP, a second VP, the imme­ diate past president, the executive committee and the alumni board , all of whom are enthusiastic , com­ mitted and have a deep love for PLU. I fol low in the footsteps of a strong leader, Paul Hartman. Paul led the Alumni in carrying out our five-year plan by challenging the board to et and accomplish spe­ cific sbort- and l ong-term go I s . Instead o f starting from scratch , I have the experience of havi ng served on the board since 1 988 and as first VP for the last two years, and the good forture of hav­ ing Paul as a mentor for the nex.t two years. "

Susan Stringer, our new first V P , comes to her position with significant experience from serv­ iog the last few years as chair of the student services committee , and as one of the masterminds of L UTELINK, a one-on-one mentor­ ing program between alums and students . It is also my pleasure to introduce

She has substantial administrative and organizational experience . We are lucky to have her . When Ruth returned t o the Taco­ ma area she immediatel y became inv Ived in the Alumni Association and has been the leading force in the development of the Alumni College . We are very excited about her appointment. With the help r Julie Baie r , assistant d i rector of alumni and parent relations, Ruth will not miss a beat. As you can see, the PLU Alumni Association continues moving for­ ward . As with any representative gov­ ernment, it is important for you to be able to communicate with your representative.

Dear John Deere

By Harvey NeufeJd Vice President , Church Relations

For tho e f u who enjoy our rural heritage , the fam ilia r putt­ putt of the famous tw -cylinder John Deere tractor is mu ic to our ears . Each 'ummer J try to take in at least one farmers fe stival o r " plow day , to 'avor the chugging of steam engine and clatter of thra 'hing machine . Orange Min­ McCor­ neapoH Moline , re mick. , and green and yellow John Deeres exc i t e the eyes . What mell ! What 'ounds ! What sights ! The folk you meet are as solid and home pun a lhe corn on the cob is delicious . These are good people. And our Pr sident Loren Anders n IS ne of the m . I know that for a fact . Not only is he from Rugby , N . D . , but on the conference table i n his office rest six or seven miniature Joh n Deere farm i m p lement s . When h e leans over and pulls his John Deere tilleT across an imagi­ nary "back forty , " you know the meeting is just about over! In 1 84 , John Deere moved from Grand Detou r, I l l . , to Moline , where he perfected the first commercially self-pol ishing plow , and with it revolutionized

the farming industry . H e built 700 of these " new machines. " Farmers formerly used plows 0 crude that the midwe tern 'oil stuck to them like g l ue . That forced farmeIs to stop frequently to scrape the soil from the plow' surface. The new plow meant fa t­ er work and a huge i nc rea. e in land broken for new crop . But there was a downside to all thi proaress . A n u nknown farm hand sketched these words:

We broke today on the home­

stead/The odlAnd

la st a



h a uD ting

\lirgin feeling

oppres. ed me/That we de troyed the work of God . /A fragrance came from the furrow/A fragrance

Like the farmhand, I wondered if all the progress was real l y prog­ ress. We tamed the land. It is good for us to ask - Did we tame too much? " . •

Young Alumni Make PLU Their Life Insurance Beneficiary A life insurance policy is an excellent way for anyone, but par­ ticularly young people, to make significant gifts to their a lma mater, according to Knut Olson '90 and his wife, Kim Morter-Ol­ son '88. The Tacoma couple recently made PLU the beneficiary of a $500,000 joint whole life policy . They plan to make premium pay­ ments over the next three or four years to make it a paid-up policy, according to Knut, an agent with Lutheran Brotherhood. " There hasn 't been that much emphasis on these policies in our part of the country , but Ivy League schools us them intense­ ly , " he added . " One of those

schools recently announced that they had $ 1 0 million outstanding insurance in just one class year . " A portion of the policy · has been designated to support the endowed Doug Herland Memorial Scholar­ ship, created last year in honor of the late crew coxswain, coach and 1 984 Olympian. The remainder is unrestricted. Both Kim and Knut were active in crew all four years at PLU and both coached . Kim remains in that capacity as she pursues work on her master's degree at PLU. Knut recently earned the Nation­ al Quality Award from the Nation­ al Association of Life Underwrit­ ers.

Jon Wefald

'59 Alumnus

KanSas state U. Pres·dent oosts Role Of Liberal Arts



basic liberal arts edu­ cation is as good as you can get " say Jon Wefald 59, reflecting on hi years as a PLU student. Wefald 1 in his eventh year as president of Kansas State Univer­ sity after 1 0 years as- president of Southwest State U nivers ity in Minnesota . At both schools he is given redit faT turning instituti n­ al fortune around . "On the surface, this high-tech, global v i l lage in which we l ive seems to demand specialization, " he continued during a brief visit to PLU this summer. "But it is the broad education that w ill prepare tudent to evaluate and i nterpret a large variety of information, to see trends and opportunities and to adjust accordingly . A liberal arts education is exactly what the d tor ordered , , . WefaJd added , " I developed an u nder tanding of my a b i l ities while at PLU . I gained confidence and grew as a whole person. PLU was both nurturing and stimulat­ ing . " He had words of high praise for former profe. sors Magnus Nodt­ vedt and Walter chnackenberg i n who e history discipline h e began his career, as well as political sci­ entist Donald Fanner. The K-State W fal j o i ned in 1 986 was on the decl ine . I t had ropped trom 1 9 , 500 students to 1 7 ,500. Although it was tough for scholars to accept, the fact that K-State' s football team had the

worst all- time w i n-los, record in the nation among NCAA I -A schools was contributing to the d I ine in enrollment . Wefald admitted the relationhip, a new coach was hired , and fac il ities and p rograms were upgraded . Last year K-State had a 7-4 record, their best record in 37 years . But at the same time , Wefald worked hard to boost the school ' s academic reputation a n d its recruitment efforts . This year the school has returned to an enroll­ ment of 2 1 ,000 . K-State ' s academic record has attracted national attention. Only five schools i n the country have produced more Rhodes Scholars since 1986. K-State is first in the number of T ruman Scholars , and second in the number of Goldwa­ ter Scholars a mong public univer­ s ities. Its debate team won a national championship last year . Wefald ' s flrst major fund raising effort pushed K-State to the top of Big 8 schools for alumni financial support . Wefald led a similar turnaround at Southwest State , where enroll­ ment had dipped to 1 , 700 from over 3,000 . An outstanding salesman and motivational peaker , he describes himself as a congeni tal optimist . Early in his career he was a histo­ ry professor at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn . , and also served as Minnesota' s secre­ tary of agriculture.

Cermany Trip M ch MO e T an Football For Lute Cridders SJune bowl game featuring the PLU Lutes, but it was n ' t PLU 's parks Stadium was the site of a

favorite gridiron in Puyallup. It was Volksparkstadion in Ham­ burg , Germany , and the June 1 2 contest was the United Nations International Children' s Emergen­ cy Fund (UNICEF) Charity Bowl Game. PLU was matched against the local , u ndefeated Hamburg Blue Devils . As had been the case two years earli e r , w hen the Lutes played in China, the crowd for the game was close to 1 0 times the number u sual ly found at a home game in Puyal lup. Nearly 20 , 000 attended , and some $70,000 was raised for UNI­ CEF. That was partly due to the fact that both teams had been out on the streets of Hamburg selling tick­ ets, having the ir pictures taken , and participati ng in newspaper , radio and television promotions . A rainy day held down the projected 30.000 crowd . The score was somewhat inciden­ tal to the outcome of the game. Both team bad fine player , but PLU bad a team. Primarily for that rea­ son they led 22-0 at halfti me and 42- 1 8 at the end of the game . A l l PLU players played. Three fonner Lute play for the Blue devil s : Rusty Eklund , Ed Jol1y and Peter Folta , all C lass of ' 92 . Their involvement there is direcrly attributable to Lhe ir carlier trip to China and the c ntac� they made at that time . (See SceneOct. 1 992 . ) Following the game the rowd was introduced to PLU ' tradition

of throwing small plastic footballs into the stands fol lowing touch­ downs. It was a big hit. And the mayor of Hamburg received proc­ lamations from the mayor of Taco­ ma and the governor of Washing­ ton . Fifty -two p layers , including many of last year ' s seniors, partici­ pated in the adventure, along with coaches and family members . The nine-day trip began June 7 , and included an extended stopover in London. Most players spent June 8 in downtown London, where they saw Buckingham Palace , TrafaJger Square, Big Ben and WestnUnsler Abbey. Some of the players even aw the Queen of England at the palace. In Germany. sites v iSIted in l ud­ ed Mecklenburg Castle, Hamburg canal , and the 8S0-year-old city of Lubeck. In Berlin. they visited tbe Brandenburg Gale. Victory Tower, Checkpoint Charlie. bombed out Kaiser W ilhelm Church , Potsdam Palace, and more . 'This trip wa ' '0 much more than a football game , " said coach Frosty Westcr ­ ing. " We tried to make it a cuitural experience. "Our guys real ly enjoy be ing together, 0 when we go we do it as a famity , " he added. "We try to show what Americans can be. That we have excitement for America, but al 0 apprec iation for others . . . It was the third overseas trip for the Lutes in four years . Four years ago they went to Australia: two year ago they enjoyed [he PLU Centennial Tour of China. •

Weekly Named To U . S. Olympic Team Softball C aching Staff When Pacific Lutheran softball coach Ralph Weekly was named the head coach of the North team for the softball competition at the Olympic Festival this past summer in San Antonio, Texas, he called it p robab l y the biggest honor I ' ve "

Ie.cejved. " Cons idering that Weekly earned

NAlA Softball Coach of the Year a nd National Softball Coaches Association Coac h of the Year honors in 1 992 , that indeed was an outstanding accomplishment. But in l ight of rus most recent coaching assignment, t he Ol y mpic Fe tival honor looks like single compared to a trip l e . [ n late August , We kJy wa named to the USA National SoftbaU Team coaches poo l . Weekly and 'even other individual s w i l l serve as national team coache in interna­ tional competition leading up to the Olympic Games i n 1 996. Of the eight coaches, two will u lti­ mate l y be cho e n to lead the Unit­ ed States softball team at the 1 996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Geor­ gia .

WOMEN'S SOCCER It came a game later than she would have l iked , but women ' s occer coach Colleen Hacker added anot her mi l es ton to he r remarkable coaching career at Paci fic Luther­ an in the opening week of play this season. With a 2-0 victory over West­ mont College of California in the Lutes' season-opener on Septem­ ber 3 , Dr. Hacker picked up win No. 200 as the PLU soccer coach. The victory came in the first­ round of the Nike/Toro Invitation­ al at Carson , Calif. Her overall record entering this season , her 1 3th, was 1 99-36- 1 5 . That calculates to more than 1 6 wins per � season through the first dozen �. years of her tenure . Coleen Ha ker Had win No. 200 come one game earlier, it would bave given PLU the 1 992 NAJA women's soccer championship. As it turned out , the Lutes dropped a 1 -0 decision to Lynn University Florida in the '92 title game . Hacker has made PLU women' soccer synonymous with success: • Three national titles and two sec nel-place finishes in the past five yea rs . • Four straight District 1 and West Region championships . • 1 8 players earning either first or second team NAJA Al l-America honors since 1 985 . Congratulations are in order � r Stacy Waterworth . Earlier this summer, Waterworth , the assistant coach for the PLU wom­ en ' s soccer team for eight sea sons , was named the Wash ington State Women ' s Soccer Association Player of the Ye r .

tee chose the 1 7 p l ay er national team. " The thing that is the most exciting is getting the opportunity to work with all those great coach­ es, " says Wee k l y . . ' I ' m looking forward to interc hanging coaching philosoph y w i th them and to bringing th ir ideas back to Pacific Lutheran and the NAIA . " Weekly ' s Paci fic Lutheran teams have appeared in the NAIA national title game three times, winning in 1 988 and 1 992 . The Lutes have qu a l i fi ed � r the national tournament seven tim in Weekl y ' s eight seasons as head coach. -

Lute Backs Earn Recognition In Early Weeks Of Grid Season A fter two game s , Pac ific Lutheran is ranked No . 4 in the NAJA Division II Top 25 national pol l . The Lutes have a 1 -0- 1 record after tying Linfield, 20-20, in the season opener at the Tacoma Dome, followed by a 43- 1 3 past­ ing of Eastern Oregon State Col­ lege at Sparks Stadium in Puyal­ lUp . Al ready this season , two Lute players have received conference bonors and one national accord . Senior quarterbac k Marc Weekly was named NAJA Division II and Columbia Football Association Offensive Player of the Week for his performance agaiIlst Linfield. H e completed 3 3 -of-5 3 passes

Fall Sports Briefs

(both marks breaking his own sin­ gle-game school records) for 362 and two TDs . He scored on a I -yard sneak with one second left, then passed for a two-point con­ version to Chad Barnett to give the Lutes the tie . The fol lowing week against Eastern Oregon , Barnett, a senior running back, scored four touch­ downs to earn CFA Mt. Rainier League Offensive Player of the Week honors . Barnett had 25- and 36-yard scoring runs, caught a 27yard TO aerial from Weekl y , and returned a punt 57 yards for anoth­ er score. The untold story at this point of the season, however, is the out­ standing defense played by the Lutes. After two game s , Pacific Lutheran is ranked No. 1 among NAJA Division 11 teams in total defense and rushing defense .

Waterworth bas been a member o f the Washington State Select Team for three years nd has received invitations to partic ipate in United States national team camps in Boston and Florida. She played her col legiate soccer at Pacific Lutheran, where she was named to mul ti p l e wcrc and NAIA District 1 Al l-Star teams. She still holds the PLU record for goals in a single game with six . The finaJ score of the Sept. 22 match read Seattle University 5 , Pacific Lutheran Univer ity 2 , in overtime. But in fact , PLU had scored four goals in the game . Something 's fishy you ' re thi nking . Not reall y , because two of the goals the Lutes scored went into their own net-the soccer term is " own goal , " and Seattle U . gratefully accepted the two scores. The irony? Never in her 1 3 seasons as head coach had one of Colleen Hacker's teams scored even one own goal-and then it happened twice in the same game. MEN'S SOCCER Pacific Lutheran, the defending NAIA District I and Area I champion, is off to a slow start in 1 993 . After eight matches , the Lutes were 3-4- 1 . Not including a 4-2 loss to Area 1 runner-up Concordia, however, the Lutes have allowed only six goals-that' s less than one goal a game. The Lutes have had trouble putting the ball in the net, scoring only 1 2 goals in their first eight matches. A pleasant surprise is the scoring punch of freshman forward Laef Eggan, who had four goals and three assists through the first eight matches . VOLLEYBALL Through the first 1 1 matches , the Lutes were 5-6 overall and 3- 1 in both district and conference play . Youth is being served on this team: the statistical leaders in virtually every category are a sophomore (Rachelle Snowdon) and two freshmen (Beth Jayne and Kim Baldwin) . Snowdon and Jayne, both outside hitters, are the primary targets for the sets of Baldwrn. In fact, Snowdon has ranked among the NAIA national leaders in kills per game throughout the season. CROSS COUNTRY The goal of the Lutes is to return to the NAIA National Championships set for Nov . 23 in Kenosha , Wisconsin. For the first time since Brad Moore became coach in 1 980, the Lute women fai led to advance to nationals . For a team that had finished i n the top ix every year since 1 98 1 , that was a disappointing result . And the men ' s tea m , winners of eight straight NCIC hampionships , also stayed home . With earl y sea so n meets geared toward conditioning, the Lutes will set their sight" on two late season meets that they hope will propel them to nationals-the NCIC Cbampionshlps on Oct 23 and the District 1 Champi­ onships on Nov. 6. The Lutes will host both races -

5 Alumni Annual Fund Report

"It was a tremendous year for the Alumni Annual Fund. The number of alumni donors increased to 4,598 and par­

ticipation reached 23 %. Gift income also hit new highs.

This generous response makes a real difference at PLU by

providing scholarship support and improving the q uality of our acaden1ic programs. "Special thanks are also due to the many, dedicated class representatives w ho make thi annual effort such a success. Your work and personal a ttention to your class­ Leigh Erie ' 7 7

mates are deeply appreciated. "

Class Re p resentatives Are the Key Factor i t e Success of the AluInni Annual Fund . Each has a unique way of appealing to classmates to make these vital contribu tions . Here are five top performers :

Stan has been his class representative for seven years. He contacts his classmates personally or by telephone. His class has repeatedly led in percentage of participation; he has achieved 1 00 percent participation in three of the last four years. Stan is a former teacher, principal and road striping cont ractor. The word "retir d" doesn't fit him well; he

years. The former Choir of the West and Ambassador Quartet member is enjoying his class representative role as a way to get back in touch with old friends. The class of 1 9 60 has been the top class in gift support for the past two years. Paul called his class­ mates' attention to their title of last year and countcd on their pride to see the title defended.

Paul Wuest, a pastor at Trinity Lutheran in Longview, Wash., the past two years has been writing to his class of ' 7 1 for six years and has placed that class among the top three in dollars raised all six years. Twice they were number one in dollars; three times (including this year) they have been number one in combined support - dollars, donors and percentage of participation. His letters usually focus on the campaign theme for the year and relate the success

Under his leadership, the Class of '9 1 came in with the top number of donors and highest participation among recently graduated classes.

PL U 2000:

PreparOng For T e 21st Century By Carolyn



that encompass different individual ' unique points of view PLU 2000 wil l identify new pos ibilities and suggest priorities that will arry PLU into the next miJlenmum. The ffort wil l conclude w ith the publicati on of planning d cument that will serve a a guide for the un i e� ity in the years ahead . The long - range planni ng process beban a year ago with the formation f a n w univer i­ ty committee, the Long Range Planning Com­ mittee . under the guidance and direction of President Anderson. The stated goals for our efforts were to: I) understand the institution more clearl y; 2) envision possibilities for the future; 3) bu il d consensus on our desired future; and 4) devel­ op a plan to achieve our dreams . Provost J . Rob It Wills and I w re asked by tb pre ident t ' - 'hair the PLU 200 , tudy. In December and Jan ary, the Commit e was organized: issues to be studied were identi­ fied, tasks were defined, and the study proce ' s was del ineated. Eight study commissions were formed: Enrollment Management, Student Life , Per­ sonnel , Physical Plant, Development , Aca­ demic Affairs, Finance an d External Rela­ tions . Several areas are considered to be of such great importance that they are being addressed by every commission. They include: informa­ tion technology and communication, diversi­ ty, and organizational structure and decision­ making . The structure of the process is meant to encourage creativity and new ways of think­ ing , and to instigate the development of new ways of being. The LRP Committee felt leadership of the study commissions was c ritical l y important. The definition of a leader as " someone you would fol low to a place you wouldn't go by yourself ' seemed especial l y fitting . The com­ mittee sought leaders with three sets of skills : expertise in the university and the business of education, human relations skills to work with a diverse group, and an attitude of openness : the ability to see things from a different per­ spective - the ability to change paradigm s . Proust said, "The real act o f discovery con­ sists not in finding new lands but in seeing with new eyes. " In February and M arch , members of the study commissions were selected and enlisted. On March 2 the first meeting of all the study commissons was held 75 people in the Uni­ versity Center at 7 : 30 a . m . - remarkable! The commission members decided that issue papers coul d be one way of stimulating our thinking, of encouraging new ideas and seek­ ing new a lternative s . Albert Einstein coul d have had PLU in mind when he said, "The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same l evel of thinking we were at when we created them. " We hope to break the bonds . • •

ou may h ve heard r read abou t . omething cal led PLU 2000. What i it? PLU 2000 i about building a V ISIon to take the university into the 2 1 st century. W are t Id th t our organization ne d to be led a. wel l as ma naged. We are told th t the face of America wi l l be very different in the future. We are tol d we must hang our paradigm . " Parad igm " comes from the Greek and means ' a pattern , example or m del . " W ith the publication of Thomas Kuhn 's book, The St ructure of Scientifi Revolution, the word parad igm has come to mean fu ndamental assumptions about the nature of the world. M y paradigm is the lens through which I " see. ' understand and predict my worl d. Sometimes that change seems overwhelming and the future frightening. What mU. t PLU do to thrive in this environ­ ment? How do we transform this organization while honoring our history and tradition? How do we inculcate values such as respect, hones­ ty and caring for the individual , the fami l y and the community? How do we balance our pernal and professional l ives in times o f increasing expectations'? How do w e facilitate social responsibility, cultural plural ism and empowerment of people? PLU 2000 is about answering these ques­ tions and many more yet to be asked. What is vision? Webster defines vision as " a mental image, an imaginative contempla­ tion , " or "the abi l ity to perceive something not actually visible, as through mental acute­ ness or keep foresight. " Joel Barker in Future Edge speaks of vision as anticipating : "If we can anticipate the future better, we need not fear it. We can welcome it, embrace it, prepare for its com­ ing , because more of it w i l l be the direct outgrowth of our own efforts . " Peter Senge describes vision in Th e Fifth Discipline as "a living force in the hearts and minds of people . " Peter Drucker states that developing a vision is a "messy, artistic pro­ cess , " and l iving it, "a passionate one . " The central premise behind developing a vision is that we can somehow shape our future . At P LU , we have embarked on the visioning process - a process of team learning , f dialogue. Senge states that we are all part of an interdependent system and that a systems paradigm " illuminates the subtle connected­ ness in our patterns of thought . " He suggests using the tools of systems thinking because they "prov uniquely well suited to fostering collab rative inquiry and buildi ng shared

In all in tances, student help was reque te a n d included. Public forums for open discussion, debate and the stimulation of new i deas have been held during the fall and more are scheduled into the spring. It is h ped that these forums will eventually help t ·trengthen our e nse of community and connectedness. In May, commission reports are due. Dur­ ing the summer, a draft of the preliminary PLU 2000 report will be prepared . Fall '94 will be a time of campus and constit­ uent reaction to the prioriti presented in the draft report. Thi time will pre 'em opportuni­ ' ty for dial gue with alumni and the B ard f Regents . (In the long range planning proc s s , t i me and energ y are usuall y saved i f a draft is available for reaction; it is not meant to limit input in any way. ) The final PLU 2000 report will be published by the end of December 1 994 . The process has been designed to be increas­ ingly participatory, with full opportunity for the broadest possible involvement by faculty, students and staff, and as the process unfolds, by members of our external constituencies and by the Board of Regents. I am amazed and del ighted at the synergism , excitement and enthusiasm for the task demon­ strated by those who have thus far been involved in the process. We anticipate good conversation, hard debate and the joy of think­ ing with and caring for abl e col l eagues throughout the process. We look forward to the creation of an envi­ ronment for change that relies on our inner resources of consciousness and c reativity. Please join with us in the transformation of PLU into a future organization - thriving in the 2 1 st century. • Carolyn Schultz is a professor of nursing' and co-chair of the PL U 2000 study.

In facl. they enjoy tell i ng the tale of how they have pent the i r time lhi term, hours that might have otherwise been u ed for study ing o r rel axing , and why, despite the work, they j ust " love SPURS , " as pub lic relations o fficer Car rie Soto declared . SPURS have been a part of the PLU scene since 1 95 1 when Charlotte Brandt became the fir t chapter president. The organization was originally founded on Feb . 1 4 , 1 922, on the campus of Montana State College by Jessica Donaldson Graham . Graham c reated the acronym from the ideals of spirit, pep, unity , responsibility and service both to the school and the community . PLU SPURS has changed since its early day s on campu s . Not only has the group increased in size , but what was once an all­ woman organization now includes five men, and hopefully more with the incoming fresh­ men in late spring . Because of the large size , the organization divides itself into s i x randomly-drawn small groups . Each small group attempts to accom­ plish three service proj ects per semester i n addition to work done by the organization as a whole. Jil l LeMay , SPURS president , said a lot of _

This � I I , servi e projects included clearing garbage out of a wooded area and the much cleaner task of stuning envel pes for the Red C ross . SPURS worked with people of all ages , from serving cocoa to children at a Santa breakfast, to sharing a hol iday meal with elderly retirement home residents. Dilapidated couches , large carpet pieces and old buckets of paint were just a few of the many items recovered from five miles of wooded area one November Saturday after­ noon. Volunteering for the Tacoma Park District , SPURS helped clear the wood s . soon to become a park. " (The clean up) is going to take a while , but we got a start on it , " Tim Roelofs , organizer of the event, said .

First Lucia Bride Returns For 40th Year Celebration By Katie Nelson

When Charlotte (Brandt ' 54) Nordling of Eugene , Ore. , stepped onto the PLU campus De . 3 , s he w s quickly nvel oped by her past. As do many alumn i , she experienced the smells and sights of a world not yet forgot­ ten , of exams and paper . f n1l ia r bric k buildings. and students carrying backpacks , even on a Friday night . But for Nordling , there was little time to stop and look around . Soon she was absorbed by a band of SPURS , members of a sopho­ more service organization , and became part of a memorable event from her PLU days. In less than two hours she found herself in a dimly lit room, whi spering with a SPURS member about which of the women in the white robes had been chosen to represent the campus . A few mi nutes later she placed a wreath of candles on the head of Monica Day , the 1 993 Sankta Lucia bride , a special title Nordl ing carried long ago . ( Day is a sophomore from Lake Havasu. Ariz . ) In observance o f the 40th year o f PLU ' s celebration of the Sankta Lucia Festival, Nordling , the first Sankta Lucia bride chosen to represent the campus in 1 95 3 , as well as the first SPURS president, was asked to come and be part of the celebration. Nordling enjoyed the festivities, though she was a bit amazed that there were 1 2 Sankta Lucia bride candidates , one per residence hall . "I was chosen as one out of three , " she explained with a smile, remembering a time when PLU was just a little bit different .

National Agency Accredits PLU Nursing Programs Accreditation bas been granted by the National League of Nursing to both master ' s and b chelor's degree programs in nur ing at PLU .

The announcement was made by the NLN during its recent national review board session in New York City . according to Dr. Dorothy Langan, dean of the PLU School of Nursing. who attended the ses­ sions. PLU s three-year-oJd master of science in nursing degree program earned its fir t accreditation at the fir t opportunity . A program must graduate one class before an initial five-year accreditation is granted , Langan indicated . The program began in 1 990. The PLU bachelor's degree pro­ gram was reaccredited , receiving its fourth eight-year accreditation. The program received its first NLN accreditation in 1965 . " Accreditation is a qual ity issue, " said Dean Langan . "The military and many hospitals do not place their people in programs that are not accredited . Also, students find it difficult to progress to the next educational level if they grad­ uate from a non-accredited degree program. Accreditation involves a strin­ gent self-study and review of 39 criteria, which include such mat-



Lers as qualifications of faculty and admini trators, equipment fi cal resources , curriculum and institu­ tional support. Several conclusions were drawn in the course of the accreditation process : * Current programs are strong, internally onsistent and effec­ tively address the ed ucational needs of undergraduate and gradu­ ate nursing students . * The quality of the faculty is exemplary . * The PLU liberal arts core is integrated into the programs, giv­ ing a comprehensive knowledge base and broad perspective. * PLU 's Lutheran heritage pro­ vides for attention to the religious dimension of the human experi­ ence. * The large number of nearby clinical facilities make excellent clinical experiences possible. * The health care community is supportive. Many School of Nurs­ ing graduates hold leadership posi­ tions in area clinical agencies, and agencies participate actively in the school through community adviso­ ry committees . * Enrollments are increasing. * Admissions criteria have been reviewed and strengthened. * Graduates demonstrate the uni­ versity 's commitment to " Educat­ ing for Service.

Excellence on Display Third Campus Academic Festival Dra ws Scores Of Participants If it had been held out of doors in the summertime, one might have begun to get the flavor of the Chautauqua festivals popular in New York state a century ago . On Dec . 3-4 , the campus was alive with concerts, other fine arts presentations , discussions and readings. Most obvious, however, were scores of posters describing in illustrations and text almost as many topics as there were students participating . One poster and narrative in Xavier Hall was a poignant description of Jason Veitengrub­ er's mother ' s battle with brain cancer. Jason is a j unior from Bellevue, Wash . , majoring in biol­ ogy and psychology ; his project was for a medical psychology class taught by Brian Baird.

The displays ranged from simple and humorous to serious and com­ plex. The first campus festival was held a year ago. Having had two trial runs, students had a better idea what was involved and what to expect, and participation was much broader this month. The festival was scheduled to coincide with Christmas concerts and other public activities to maxi­ mize exposure, and prospective students were invited to attend . A second festival will be held this spring , May 6-7 . This fall 's co-chairs were Baird, earth sciences professor Jill Whit­ man and music professor Greg Youtz . Marla Henderson in the alumni office and Leah Raynes, student intern, were coordinators.

MacGi n l t i e , who j i ned the engineering faeu Ity last winter, is exploring the relationshjp between bone . tructure and the ele tric "fields in bone generated by pbysi­ cai activity . She is conducting her research under auspices of a three-year, $ 1 35 ,000 grant from the National Science Foundation . That grant was received while M acGinitie was working as a research sci ntist in the Orthopaedic Eng ineering and Research Center at Helen Hayes Hospital in West Haver­ straw, N . Y. She since has applied to transfer her grant to PLU . The work she is doing will even-

tually contribute to more effective treatment of m a l ad i S, sllch as oste porosis, and injuries , u h as fractures . She explained , "When bones are ' loaded ' by physical activity , such a. walking j umping, pI y i n g ten­ nis, or even g e tt i ng up from a chair, the b ne deC! rm and forces th bone fluid to flow. Since the bone fluid has a po. itive charge at the bone surface, an electric cur­ rent flows when the fluid flows . " MacGinitie has been measuring the electric fields produced by bending moist bone samples . She is developing analytical models based both on her own research and experimental work at other laboratories . " Experimental studies i n other laboratories indicate that bone growt h , repair and adaptation remodel ing can be stimulated by applying electric fields , " she add-

Brue Pitches Economic Education In NIS To Governme nt Leaders A sense of the xtent to which Ameri aDS ar becoming economi­ cally inv Ived in Rus s ia and the other independent tat s of the for­ mer Soviet Unio became appar­ enL to a PLU prof ss r in St. Lou­ i · i n Octobe r. Ec nomics pro fe ' o r Stanley Brue attended a conference there at the in italion of Pr sident Bill Cl into n . Hou e M aj ority Leader R i chard Gebhardt and the U. S . Information Agency . "There were 2 70 people at the c nference , " sa id rue . " A 1 had sam conne tion 0 exchange with tbe former Soviet U nion . " Ther were c mpany C EO. , government agency head , con­ gress i onal leaders, trade assoc ia­ tion heads nd some educator as well a. R ssians and other NIS •

PLU Student Is A Champion Horsewoman Krista B rown of Federal Way , Wash . , a sophomore at PLU , is a national champion horsewoman . Brown, 20, won her title in October in Albuquerque, N . M . , where she competed i n the annual International Arabian Horse Ass ciation competition, with her horse " Up In Smoke. " She n " S m key " won the 1 8 -39 age category f t he half­ Arabian Engl ish plea ure divi i n in competition with more than 50 horses . he placed in the top 10 a year ago . In all djv i s i ons. she sai d , more than 2 ,000 horses are entered in the competition. Brown the daughter of Ri h Brown of Federal Way and Lau­ reen Rapp of Kearney , Nebr. , has been riding since she was 10 years old. Smokey has been her mount for the past three years.

(Newly Independent States) repre­ entatives. " A s a pane l i . t , I was able to make a pitch fo r economic educa­ ti n in those states , " he ad ded . , They need more than j ust privati­ zation and investment . They need to understand the system . " In Ru i la t year, a well as at the conference , Brue was struck by the NIS culture of contro l . " M any citizens i n the N I S can't i magine an economy that is not ti ohtly contro l l ed " he observed . " They are afra i m arkets will bring chaos . " The impor nce of economic know l e ge and the benefit of exchanges wer further reinforced dur' ng Russian President Boris Yeltsin's most recent crisis, Brue poi nted out. The influential per­ sons who stood by him were, to a large extent , persons who had traveled or stud ied in the West , particularly the U . S . Stil l , Brue was surprised to learn of the rapidity of privatization that is taking place , particularly in Ru ssia. " There is great variability in terms o f t h e i r needs , " he observed . Moscow is compara­ tively advanced , wh ile a place l ike Georgia almost deserves develop­ ing country status . " Brue was invited to the confer­ ence because he is among the U . S . acad e m i c l eaders act i v e i n exchanges with the NIS. He was i n Moscow during the summer of 1 992 presenting a seminar on mar­ ket economics to Russian econo­ mists . In addition, Economics, the book he has co-au thored w ith Campbell R. McConnell, has been ansl ated into Russian and is being used by as man as a million Rus­ sian economics students . The conference was called to explore ways in which the U . S . Executive Branch, Cong'l"e ss and private sector can cooperate to maximize the impact of exchanges and other dealings with the former Soviet Union.

Oday ' s economy is m o re di verse , dynamic and com­ peti tive than ever before. How do we prepare ourselves to succeed in that environment? What is this "qual ity thing " we keep hearing about? H w do we capital­ ize on the strengths of our cultural differences? To help answer those and many other questions, the A lumni Asso­ ciation and Office of Student Life sponsored an a fternoon seminar Nov . 1 2 entitled " U nderstanding the Changing Workplace. " Alum­ ni and students gathered in Chris Knutzen Hall to hear fi ve present­ ers discuss three topics relevant to today ' s workplace . A reception gave students and alumni a chance to network and discuss what had been learned in the seminar with the presenters . " U nderstanding the Changing Workplace , " the first session of by D r . the afte rnoon, was I Cheryl Roberts, director o f Career Development Services at the Uni­ versity of Washington Extension, and Tom Washingto n , C EO of Career Management Resources, an outplacement and career coun­ seling firm in Belle u . B th Alhs­ trom , Director of Ca er services at PLU , was on hand to introduce them. Chery I stressed the impo rtance of recognizing strengths rather than focusing on weaknesse s . In an interview , many people: .!Od it much easier to name their short­ comings rather than what they do we l l . Employers are l ooking for sincerity , so it is important to be candid and not ju st repeat what you think the interviewer wants to hear. Tom explained that an effective resume was one that would sell your potential to an employer by l isting results that you have achieved. Less quantifiable "con­ tributions " that you have made are also valuable elem ents in the resume. At the interview stage, the most important goal is to be remembered by the interviewer . You must be able to tell a story that exemp l i fies your qual ifica­ tions for the position . "The Quality Thing" addressed the practical aspects of total quali­ ty management . Ted Johnson, a member of the Student Services Comm ittee of the Alumni Board and representative to the Board of Regents, introduced speakers Jim Larrison , consul tant for the C ity of Tacoma , and Merv Shetler, vice president for continuous qual-

ity improvement, Boeing Defens and Space Group, Seattle. La rrison gave an overv iew of the development of the total quali­ ty management sty le. Accor in'''' to him, the energy crisis of 1 9 74 w the turning point for America n business. Up to that point, energy had been cheaper in the United States than the rest of the world , so U . S . manufacturers were able to undercut other produce rs . The higher cost of energy leveled the playing field, and American busi­ ness was furced to look at the cost of processes which c reate sub­ standard products that had to be reworked . Shetler desc ribed total qual ity management as a process that begins with a complete undcrtanding of mission and moves to results . The most important com­ ponent is an understanding of \,;u tomer perception of quality an fitness � r u e . Qu l ilY ' p rish·· able and must be ns antly improving to maintain cu stomer satisfac tion . " Valuing Diversity " wa th topic of the fi nal ses ion 0 the afternoon . S san Stringe r , chai r­ man of the Student Servic s Com­ mittee and first vice-pr sldent of the Alumn i Board introduced tbe I t speak r , are Powell, a ma nagement c n ultant w ith an international bu i e e ntered in the Pacific Northw st . According to Powel l , diversity describes diffe rences in race , gen­ der, ethnicity , culture, age, socio­ economic status , sexual o rienta­ tion , l i festy l e , and disability . Using this definitio n , everyone is diverse. Karen said that there should be no defensiveness on the part of white male America . They d id not do anyth ing wrong in building American business . How­ ever, the work force today is very diffe rent and i s continu ing to change rapidly . By the year 2000, two-th irds of the work force will be made up of women and m inori­ ties. Immigration will be greater in the next five years than at any time since World War II. Today there are six million less teenagers ..than ten years ago . A lthough the job market is tight now , in five years it will be a job seeker's market. These demographics , if nothing else, make understanding diversity e sentia l .

Dear PLU friend. ne and a l l : n e f those beautiful i ronies f li fe t hat hy g iv in g honor, one bring h n r l one el f. That i true for PLU a well . And .o in honod g the e five , we honor this univer ity and t he core of it trad ition . First, we honor the [radition of service in the persons of David, who i serving around the worl d ; Pip r , who i helping de n up the environment I caU y ; and Kurt, who giv back to his com­ munity in his role as a successful businessman. Th ree outstand ing examples of " Educating for Se rvice " a re embodied in these people. Martin Luther gave u s that pro­ fou nd call to education: "We must spare no dil igence, time or cost in teaching and educating our children that they might serve God and the world. " Martin Luther must smile at these three. And then we honor two who have r ndered uch distingu ished service in this academic community . I first met Phil Nordquist at a c ference at Concordia College in 1 974 discussing " What does it mean to be a Lutheran college? " I have known of him since and I have come to know him much better in the last two years . He defines another tradition of this pl ace - the trad ition of teache r, ch lar and mentor. I t i s at the very heart and fabric of what PLU is about. And there i. Lu ille Girou x : 32 year of service to PLU and an expert in public reI ti ons . She exempl i fies the tradition of ho pi­ tatity , another core value of this II i

for queen and k i ng s ; she has heJ ed the 10 l fi r t year student on this campu s . She has done both with equal aplomb and grace . She served five PLU pre idents; need I say mor ? To our five honorees, and to all our alumnI . we want you to kn w that we af proud of what you have aJl a ampl i hed. Y u make feel very g od beca e we, l ike you . claim this univer ity , and mereb we claim a ociation w ith you . Congratu lations to each of you . * * *

Now I wa nt to ay a word to the larger aud ience here tonight. to all r you who have orne home on this occa ion . Coming home i impor­ tan t , for when we come h m we reconnect with important th i ngs . We reconnect with peapl who have mattered in ou r l i ves . We reconne t with place and e peri­ cnce . When we come to our collegiate horne we reconnect with ideas thal have helped . hape and direct , an value that give purpo e an mean­ ing to life . We orne to k.n w ou[elves a bit better when we come home. That ' why homec ming is important, an I hope in that sense thi has been an important weekend for you . It also is important for us because PLU needs you . We need your fer4 vent pray rs and we need you r loudest cheers . We need your kind­ est words and we need your wisest counsel . We need your financial s upport and you r good words to those in your sphere who m ight come to study here. We need your help in all these way s . Becau se, y o u s e e , what makes this place so special is that it has been built over the years by a legion of faith fu l who bel ieve that PLU offers a very d istinctive k i nd of education worth the extra dollar, the extra mile, the extra effort. Yes . we need you , and we boldly ask for you r help . We ask boldly because we believe so fundamental­ ly that this place is a beacon of l ight in a darkened sky. The song of this .

lace is a message o f hope and pro mise and opportunity that rings around the worl d . The five of you we recognize here tonight carry the melody, but the harmony you hear i sung by u all . God has bies ed this place in so many way . We celebr te a l l of those ble s ing at homecoming . A nd with your help. we know that Pacific Lutheran University will be bles ing in days and month. and years and decades and centuri yet to come. WeJcome home! Thank you for being wi th us this weekend!

Alumni The


PLU And The Kennedy Legacy By Rutb Anderson Interim Director of Alumni and Parent Relations

. -

Whatever our political procl ivi­ ties, we were proud that early fal l day i n 1 963 when our nation ' s President looked over the com­ bined student bodies of the U ni­ ver ity of Puget Soun (UP ) and PLU , scrapped his planned peech about conservation, an spoke to our hearts. John F. Kennedy called students "America's most valuable natural resource, " and urged us to use our education to serve our country and I akc the world a better pl ace. , cant weeks later the door of our cl' ,r om in Eastvold fl ew open and our dear cleaning lady tood before us, tears running down her cheeks . as she blurted out the unbel ievable new s : " The Presi­ dent h s been shot " As the news media have remind­ ed us recently , President Kenne­ dy's death shocked the nation, but it didn' t bring down our govern­ ment or society . We endured , just as PLU has l ived through distress­ ing events over the course of its 1 04 years of history . And the fact that the university is thriving at a time when other colleges are con­ solidating and dropping programs, makes it easy to answer those alumni who ask: "What has PLU done for us lately? " The question is certainly legiti­ mate, and I draw your attention to the many events we have sched­ u led for alumni and the services we are endeavoring to provide . But I submit that PLU ' s continued well-being is the most important service the university can offer its students and alumni. Most career specialists, such as the five who participated in the recent Lutelink Seminar, agree that the days are gone when gradu­ ates leave their university with degree in hand , a career-long job waiting for them . Today we com­ pete in an employer's market , not an employee ' s worl d . Compel led

to transfer to a different career, or to justify our place in our current one , many of us find ourselves writing letters to the Registrar for transcript s , wasting no effort won­ dering what we would do if our letter were returned : " Not able to deliver. " I n short , our PLU t ranscript remains our t i c ke t to l i fe long employment. Hence , it is in ou r professional interests to ensure that PLU remains one of the best colleges in the nation ; that our schools attain, and retain accredi­ tation; that the facu l ty is hailed beyond our hallowed hall s ; that our students continue to be acc pt­ ed into graduate progr ms. A nd on a personaJ basis, many of us par­ ticu l arly cherish the traditton of quality education w ith space for grace that remai ns PLU ' s hall­ mark. Ask us what PLU has done [or you lately and w w i l l tell y u about Hom ming , about the ff­ campus events with Dr. And r ' n, about the great fo tball gam you . might have att nded , and . e.-v ice!>, such as the new Alumni Directory . t he medical insuran e for gradu­ ates, and the fl:ini ry telephone cards we are investigat i n g . But , important as these events and services are , they will never replace the abiding interest each student and alum has in ensuring that this i nstitution continues to thrive and prosper in a competitive world . Pre sident Kennedy exhorted us to do something for our country, while PLU provided the founda­ tion we needed to carry out h i s orders. A PLU education, the gift that keeps on giving - now ours to repay by recruiting good students, volunteering our services , and providing financial support. Thank you alumni, for what YOU have done for PLU lately . May you enjoy a merry and blessed Christmas season , and please let us hear from you soon .

206-535-7423 . By Harvey Neufeld Vice President, C hurch Relations

When I was a smal l boy I would , during lazy afternoons of the prairie summer, go alone for walks in the meadows that bor­ dered our l i ny village . And there I wou ld l ie , fi r t on my tomach, an t ry to fi nd the smallest crea­ llne I could see and fol low its path i n the u nderworld of freshly greened grass , so pleasantly fra­ grant from the summer rains. Next I would lie on my back and watch the silken clouds swirl and dri ft in a Ih u 'and patterns a 1'0 . a sky so b lue - it could only be called God's handi rk. In these patterns ever changing, in m y simple naive boyhood dreams. I would search for the face of Jesus. Oh , there it was -­ the beard , the eyes, the nose, the ear, but as quickly as it formed, it would disappear. I never found Him there. Once, my holy search was inter­ rupted as my eyes focused on a pair of red-tailed hawks -- gopher hawks that circled high abov e . They were drifting a n d soaring, fol lowing one thermal updraft and then another. It seemed to be motion of the purest form . I said to myse l f, "Oh God , I wish I could fly l ike that ! " I n my visits to some of the Alas­ ka churches, I had occasion to fly with a bush pilot from one of the parishes into the wilds of Kodiak Island. The great brown bears were clearly visible as we glided into a fi herman' s Eden . The lake, J ik emerald and topaz, begged to Available at the PLU Bookstore or by calling Office of Church Relations (206) 535-7423

be describe d . Bul t e s i ghts and sounds could not be measured by any standard . They were of inti­ nite worth , distilled grace and careful evidence to a heart tuned to God of the benevolence of a Father who cared for his children. . Just as the sound of the plane' s engine died away )n the return to base camp , an eagle the size of which I many never see again swooped but a few paces from me, scooped up a trout , and in slow motion. pumped i t monstrous wings and rose majestically from the lake ' s surfac . . H igher and higher if flew until it too, like th plane, melted int the early morn­ ing mists just risin J from the val­ leys all round. And I said to myself, "Oh God, if 0 Iy I could fly l ike that ! " When I was a t udent p i l ot strapped into a small Cessna 1 50 , I followed 1-5 south ard on my solo c ross-country trip to A lbany , Ore. There I had lunch w i t h the pre i­ dent of Citizens Valley Bank . It was the beginning of a major gift effort for the colleges of tl1e A LC . We needed a leadership g i ft ! We label some events a s rucial . This was one of them - to me, to PLU , to all the workers . " How much do you want?" I was told to ask for $5 ,000. It seemed l ike a lot . Half mad with the intoxication of my first cross-country fl ight , I blurted out a whopping five-figure target . Silence -- then , " I ' ll do it . " Oh God, it was fun to fly l ike that. I mention these three incidents or vignettes because they speak of our task. We are now at the place at PLU when we must soar l ike eagles . Visions can become reali­ ty . Our l ives have been inspired by the mission of our educational endeavor. We are surrounded on every hand by an educational envi­ ronment that says: Now i s the time This i s the place All signals are go!


How is this to be done? Isaiah 40 : 3 1 says ' They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; They shall run and not be weary , walk and not faint. " A round me, as I leave PLU, there is excitement ; a new chapter in the life of a great university is begin­ ning to be written . What a time to stick around ! But then, after 27 years, what a time to start a new chapter of my own ! The Lord will renew our strength.

On thi� finaJ day he set school records for passing yardage in a game (44 1 ) and total offense (450) ,

During h i s four-year tenure Weekly has set more than 50 records. Ranked number one in the polls for much of the season, the Lutes saw their season off to an uncer­ tain start when they recovered for a 20-20 tie with Linfield . They also survived a 49-48 scare from

Central Washington i n the fi fth game . Otherwise , they powered through an undefeated season on the strength of a 42-po ints per game average.

We feel like we play the game l ike it should be played . " Weekly capped the season by adding , "The way it ended is the way I would want it to end, not necessarily with a national cham­ pionship, but that we were able to stay together for 1 4 weeks This team is built on love .

SWIMl\-HNG The men ' s swim team fini shed Northwest Conference duals with a 4- 1 record , losing only to Linfie l d , the defending champion . Three of the dual meet v ictories came on the road . The wome n ' s squad had a solid 3-2 confe rence dual record , and in fact could have finished with a 5-0 record , losing the two meets by a combined 1 6 point s . " I f we had n ' t had some m issed turns and a couple o f bad races . we could j ust as easily have been 5 -0 , " said Coach J i m Johnso n . T h e m en ' s team c losed o u t t h e fi rst h a l f o f the schedule with a second - pl ace fi n i s h to Central Washington at the l I th A nnual P L U I nv itational . Junior Max M ilton edged o u t teammate Todd Buckley for the outstanding male swimmer award . Both won two races . The women ' s team also finished second t o Centra l , with senior Robyn Prueitt winning three freestyle races . The schedule i s quite favorable for the Lutes in January . Pac i fi c Lutheran will host T h e Evergreen State , Simon Fraser, Central Washing­ ton and the U n i ve rsity o f Puget Sound on consecutive Saturdays i n January , starting on the 8th .

WOMEN ' S BASKETBALL After opening the season with fou r straight games on the road , the Lutes finally got a chance to play at home twice before the Christmas brea k . They hosted Central Washington on December 1 0 and Western Washington on December 1 1 . The Lutes were 1 -3 in those first fou r games , rall ying from a hal ftime deficit to beat Northwest College , 66-48 . In fact, the team needs to do a better job of putting together two soli d halves of basketbal l . Two of rile first three losses came in part because the Lutes were unable to do that . Sophomore forward Jennifer Riches has p l ayed wel l in early games, leading the team in both scoring and rebound i ng .

MEN' S BASKETBALL The Lutes are 4-3 a fter t h e i r first seven g a m e s , and Coach Bruce Haroldson is hopeful o f a solid season. Balanced scoring , a strength of any tea m , has been evident in the early part of the season . Forwards Denathan W i l l iams and M att A shworth lead the team in scori ng , and Ashworth has been very strong on the board s . Pacific Lutheran w i l l participate in t h e Lutheran Brotherhood tourna­ ment at C a l i fornia Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks on December 29-30.

athlete ,


During my 1 6 years chronicling the achievements of Pac ific Lutheran U n ivers ity men and women student athletes , in both the arena and the classroom, the reverse was true. I found these special young people to be talented amateur athletes , excellent stu­ dents and professional human beings. It was a privilege to be a part of a class program nurtured by caring administrators and coaches . While it is tough to get a handle on how class relates to success, I think New Jersey cardiologist D r . George Sheehan is on the right track. Perhaps PLU ' s athletic success has to do with something more basic than talent. Sheehan suggests success is linked to the develop­ ment of the inner person and the acting out of that drama. He calls the external evidence of this suc­ cess "clas s . " Class is the total reaction of body , mind and spirit. People with class, motivated and under control , are good choosers. They know what to do . If PLU instills class, I like to think most Lute athletes see life as the ulti­ mate game and know how to play it. As a figure filbert , I was expec­ ted to overwhelm the media with

statistical evidence of PLU ' s indi­ vidual and collective athletic suc­ cess. While this was done ad nau­ seum, I derived muc h greater satisfaction beating the drums over scholastic achievement. It is difficult for a publicist to refrain from flaunting his institu­ tion ' s academic accolades , but i t happened to m e more than once. W hen , a few years back, PLU earned more di strict scholar ath­ lete awards than all the other member schools combined, I was embarrassed for the other colleges and lacked the killer instinct to point out the imbalance . Then there was the year that PLU captured 1 120th of all the Academic All-America citations awarded by the NAIA, an alliance of nearly 500 colleges and univer­ sities . Now , geographically removed from the Lute sports sideline after 23 years at PLU , my recall button does n ' t trigger big-game flash­ backs, but focuses on where-are­ they-now. Citing names and rank would be an ominous tas k , and space does not permit. Intellectua l l y enl i g h tened , touched with a class that has cour­ age - physical , moral and sodal courage - the products of PLU ' s athletic program , the GraduLutes, are, in growing numbers , in the mainstream of society , fulfilling the university ' s commitment to service. • Jim Kittilsby, former PLU director of special funding and long-time assis­ tant athletic director and sports infor­ mation director, is Director of Devel­ opment at Flathead Lutheran Bible Camp near Kalispell,

Tha Ba ic to the uccessful marriage of

academics and athletic is the priority awarded to the pursuit of an academic degree and proper synthesis of all components of college life

By David M. Olson ore Than Champions, the script on

the jacket worn by a Lute fan jubi­ lantly exiting Portland' s Multno­ mah Stadium, said it all ! The PLU football team had just completed a "symphony of excellence , " defeating West­ minster College of Pennsylvania, 50-20, earn­ ing the N AJA Divi ion II National Champi n­ ship. It was the culmination of an undefeated season during which 84 national, conference and school records were broken! For the Lutes , the field w s more than a " field of dreams. " It was a " happening . " But the dream and the " happening " were more than a victory - as gratifying as that was! For throughout the season , it was clear by the conduct of our players on and off the field and by hundreds of media interviews of athletes and coaches that the process was as important as the performance; and that the person was more important than the program. Throughout it all, our philosophy of sports was demon­ strated in a manner meriting our respect and celebration . The real meaning of " amateur athletics" is better understood by examining the derivation of the words. "Amateur" means to be in love with something and " athletics" to compete for a prize . This meaning forms a philosophical basis for athletics at Pacific Lutheran Univer­ sity. Sports are inherently fun, and the frame­ work of PLU sports should enable a love of participation and a joy in competing . Our theme, " the pursuit of excellence through the joy of sports, " encourages the conduct of a program in which athletes strive to be the best they can be but stiB enjoy the " trip. " This enjoyment was evidenced in the Lute football championship and by hundreds of other men and women wearing Lute colors. We can and should celebrate this! The elements that have enabled a rich sports heritage , a meaningful present and a promis­ ing future need to be remembered and affirmed. First, it is essential that we recog­ nize Who 's #1 ! The betterment of those partic­ ipating in athktics needs to be the dominating focus upon which our decisions are based . "Is this best for our athletes? " must be the ques­ tion first asked as we make decisions relative

to our program . Admittedly, the decision is often "cloudy , " but unless the question is asked and the response purposeful , the l ikeli­ hood of our fidelity to mission is lessened . The "verdict of the scoreboard" legitimate­ ly remains an important outcome in a competi­ tive intercollegiate athletic program. It is diffi­ cult to measure the pursuit of excellence without relating one 's performance to anoth­ er's effort. However, if our definition of suc­ cess is solely limited to beating an opponent , we may lose more than the game and the values of our program, for either our partici­ pants or our University are limited. The number of participants, the correlation of achievement to potential , the enjoyment of performers and spectators , the retention, aca­ demic achievements and attainment of a deg ree by the participants are examples of broadening our definition of success . We believe that failure is not fatal and fame is not final , and both failure and fame need more clarity and meaning . Make no mistake about it, winning is impor­ tant. The late A . Bartlett Giamatti , when Pres­ ident of Yale University , said it clearly : "Winning has a joy and discreet purity to it that cannot be replaced by anything else. W in­ ning is important to any man or woman's sense of satisfaction and well-being. Winning is not everything but it is something powerful , indeed beautiful in itself, something as neces­ sary to a strong spirit as striving is necessary to a healthy character. " Yes, we will pursue excellence and strive to win. To do less would create a malaise of mediocrity none of us could support or toler­ ate. At the same time, we owe it to our athletes and to our University and to " sports , " to better interpret and define success in sports.

We should not allow the scoreboard to be both the judge and the jury! "Educational athletics , " a theme basic to our purpose, demands that sports changes par­ ticipants, hopefully for the better! We chose to use the words " co-curricular , " rather than "extra-curricular, " to describe our program . Positive educational outcomes are planned , activities that are directed to such outcomes are carefully pursued . These outcomes must be consistent with our institutional objectives and have long-term value . To promote less makes the two words, " educational athlet­ ics , " incongruous and our primary goal unat­ tainable . Basic to this successful marriage of academ-

ics and athletics is the priority awarded to the pursuit of an academic program and proper synthesis of all components of college life . We must strive to compete successfully without forfeiting academic integrity . Sports, albeit fun, are not i ntrinsically good or bad. Whether athletic experience provide the positive outcomes we seek depe pds, in large measure , on the leadership of coaches . 'Best lajd plan ' " remain a d ream without competent and caring leadership. There i lit­ tle possibility of any athletic team being true to our mission without a coach demonstrating effective communication , a thorough under­ standing of the sport, a capability of promoting group effort, good organizational skills, a phi­ losophy embracing " educational athletics " and a genuine concern for the athlete . Someone has said " you can tell a lot about people by the company they keep. " To para­ phrase, then, you can tell a lot about a compa­ ny by the people they keep . We are blessed at PLU by a coaching staff who have made a long and loyal commitment to our University. The "bigger is better" syndrome permeates every aspect of our society - including sports . There always seems to be a better perfor­ mance , more spectators, larger facilities, more revenue and very frequently these parameters are interpreted as more positive outcomes . We must not forget , for those in our programs, that the roar of our crowds may just be a din and the feats of our athletes may not be world records. Nevertheless, the meaning , the excitement and the importance for those per­ forming, watching and coaching , makes this the "big time . " In a Sports Illu strated interview , Dr. Leroy Walker, President of the United States Olym­ pic Committee, stated that ' ' the Olympics are like Christmas in that they may not be what they were intended to be but they are still worth preserving . " Sports at PLU may not be all they can be or should be, but it is a program serving over 600 students each year, for the most part in a positive and beneficial manner . We are grate­ ful for the support and encourag�ment of our administration, faculty/staff, students and extended sports family in enabling our athletes to be "more than champions ! " Celebrate this!

Academic All-Americans Share Commitmen t To Study Priorities

By Nick Dawson


or Jennie Lee, athletics and academ ics not only go hand in hand , the two together make her a success both on the field and in the classroom. Jennie, a junior defender on the PLU wom­ en's soccer team , earned N AIA second team An-America a n d A\\-America Scholar-Ath­ lete honors this past season. To qual ify for the academic award, the student-athlete must maintain a grade point average of at least 3 . 5 o n a 4 . 0 scale. Jennie , who has a physical education major and history minor, carries a 3 . 62 gpa. Both honors were the result of hard work. " Being invol ved in athletics forces me to organize mysel f. W ith fal l p ractice and game s , I m ight only have two hours each night to study , so I can't procrasti nate , " she says. Though that organization may not work itself out in terms of a clean bedroom, it does make her a better student. She keeps concise notebooks for each class and makes the most of her stud y time, choos ing to crack the books even when presented with alternatives that, though fu n , a re not as profitable i n terms o f her grade average. Lee also finds that when soccer is in season her academic work not only comes easier -

a sort of " sound body , sound mind" phil oso­ phy - but it does n ' t take as much energy . " I t seems l ike it would be the other way around because athletics takes so much time and is so physically demand ing. But during the season I ' m more focused on everything , and I pay more attention to my personal time. Because I don 't have as much of it, I sit down to study after practice , " Lee say s . Having friends who, l i ke her, are focused on top efforts both in athletics and academics also makes it easier. Her drive toward acade mic success also involves her parents. Keith a nd Susan Lee instilled in Jennie and her brother the focus on academic success. "They a l ways empha­ sized my studies first as I was growing up , " said Lee. " Everything else I d id was second­ ary , and I was involved in a lot of extracur­ ricular activities . " Earn i ng A l l -A merica recognition for per­ formance both on the field and in the class­ room is certainly noteworthy. Jennie is the first to deflect praise for her success on the field to her teammates. " I play a team sport , and that just verifies in my mind that the team doing its job enables me to be honored , " she said . The team , however, has l ittle to do with Jennie 's work ethic and results in the class­ room . ' ' I ' m really proud o f what I ' ve done , " she say s . *

Roy Gonzales





omewhere between his senior year in high school and his freshman year at PLU, Roy Gonzales had a change in attitude. "I was more focu sed on athletics i n high school , " says Roy , a former state prep wres­ tling champion at Oak Harbor H igh School who now competes at 1 26 pounds for PLU 's mat squad . Now when the senior talks about wrestling, he uses words l ike " hobby " and "extra-curricular. " I t ' s not as if Roy wasn 't a good student in high school . He had plenty of encouragement in that regard from his parents . "I was morc or less bored . I enjoyed my science classes and tried hard in those , but when it came to English and classes l ike that I j u st did what I had to to get by , " he recal l s . ' ' I ' m a much better student now than I was in high school , " he added . Roy pursues his academic load with a vengeance and is both an accompl ished student

Jennie Lee

and col legiate ath lete . He mainta ins a 3 . 6 grade point average with a biology major and chemistry minor. Twice he has earned NAIA Al l-America Scholar-Athlete honors. To do so, he has to not only have a gpa of at least

3 . 5 , but qual ify for the NAIA national cham­ pionships. Last year an elbow injury prevent­ ed his participation, He wrestled in his final collegiate competition at this year's national meet March 1 1 - 1 2 in Butte , Mont . A top six fi nish i n a weight class earns A l l-America honors at the mat . To accom­ pl ish that, Roy say s , "I need to attack the match l ike I attack a test. Since I a l ready know that I am an Academic A l l-American, being a wrestli ng A l l -American would be that much more special because it is something I haven't accompl ished . Yet in the long run , knowing I kept m y g rades up at the same time is more ful filling . " Gonzales hopes to enter g radu ate school and eventual ly do research a nd teac h . He finds that the demands of being a student-ath­ lete have taught him some excel lent lessons. " I 've had to organ ize my t ime and p l a n things out , " h e said . " I wou ld l ike t o think I ' m a more responsible person that I was four or five years ago. "I have a set schedule of what I ' l l do during the week , " he conti nued . " During the off-season I won' t look very far ahead and plan my time. During wres t l i ng season I know how much time I have for study ing . ' Roy 's coach , Chris Wolfe , helps prepare Roy and his teammates for all that is demand­ ed of them . " He te l l s us we have more responsibil ity now because w e ' re taking on .. more than an average student , " Roy observed . That is no problem for Roy , with his "new" attitude about being a student-ath lete .

'We Want T em To Be At PLU; Sports Is Really A Bonus' "


ear aft T year, why does PLU contin­ ue to attract such outstanding athlete - outstanding scholar athletes - into its athlet­ ic program? The answer sounds simplistic , but it is accurate . The campus sells itself, according to admissions counselor Del Lo fton , who specializes in dealings with athletes. By the campus , Lofton means not only the buildings and grounds, but the total environ­ ment . "The campu . The students . The coaches . The a adcmic program and fa ulty , " he said. Lofton, a former Lute football player, stud­ ied history, German and coaching on his way to graduation in 1 990. He is in his third year as an admissions counselor. PLU recruiters look for students who "fit the PLU profile , " a profile that includes aca­ demic achievement, but also outside activi­ ties , aptitude and motivation. With athletes , the same profile applies . " We want them to want to be at PLU . Sports is the plus , the bonus , " said Lofton. Successful enterprises, athletic and other­ wise , build a reputation for excellence. A fter decades of athletic success, PLU has many alumni in coaching and in the schools who can identify worthy prospective students and encourage them to consider PLU . Non-alum­ ni coaches also point prospects to successful programs . But after the students are identified , they need to find a school where they feel at home and appreciated , and where their skills can be developed, Lofton said . In that respect, PLU 's cadre of coaches has been outstanding, he indicated . Ryker Labbee , a football running back from White Swan, Wash . , recalls that coach­ es d idn ' t tell h i m " how good the football team is. They talk about where their players are in the world right now . They tal k about things like going into the elementary schools in the community . " The coaches are interested in making peo­ ple better for l i fe , not just on the football fiel d , " he added. Lofton pointed out that PLU offers need­ based talent awards to athletes, as well as to prospective students in drama, art, forensics and music . " The clincher is to get prospects to come to campus , " he said. "They meet the coach­ es, faculty and students. They feel the atmo­ sphere . " He added , " Everyone says 'hi' to them and to one another . That friend l iness really • makes an impression ! "

Continued from page 5 Academic All-American who graduated cum laude. When she returned to earn a master's degree in special education, she graduated summa cum laude.

"I appreciate the emphasis on both academ­ ics and athletics that student athletes receive, " he aid . " I was inspired by coaches and fellow athletes. "Some of the principles I learned about different ways to motivate athletes, and stu­ dents, to do their best, can be applied directly to the work I am doing . " Hundley teaches health and sign language to special education students in the Bethel School District. She also coaches at Frontier Junior High in Graham , Wash. * * *

During his years at PLU , Phil Schot ' 83 of M il waukee , Wisc . , was a national NAIA decathlon champion, an All-American three times and an Academic All American twice . Today he is an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin, where he directs the biomechanics laboratory . The l O-sport decathlon, said the Edmonds, Wash . , native, " i s a great humbler . " The perseverance he learned in that sport, he said, "got me through grad school . " Schot recalls the philosophy that guided the athletic department . "They just wanted us to do our best, " he said . " Head to head competi­ , tion was secondary . ' He was the most impressed on campus "by the quality of people (coaches and students) . Not only did I meet my wife (Karla Hovland ' 83) on campus, but I consciously decided to hang around quality people . " Had I not been doing athletics , " Schot added, "I probably would have wasted that extra time . " * * *

David Trageser '79 of Bainbridge Island , Wash . , an i nvestment banker at Dain Bos­ worth I nc . , i n Seattle , was inducted into PLU ' s Athletic Hall of Fame last October. He was a PLU tennis All-American three times and was the most valuable player at the nation­ al NAIA tournament in 1 978 . Like many others, he also excelled in the classroom . He was an Academic All American and earned the Wall Street Journal Award as the top finance student his senior year.

Paradoxically , he described comparatively less pressure on athletes at PLU compared to

larger schools , but more competition in the classroom . "You had to commit yourself to getting to work; I really had to study for my classes, " he said. " Of course our tennis matches were com­ petitive , " he added . But coaches were low­ key and emphasized teamwork and fun . We built a lot of camaraderie and close friend­ ships . " The coaches recognized that we also had a lot of study commitment, and they let us know , that that came first. ' Trageser selected PL U because of its School of Business rather than for its tennis team . * * *

Frank Wil son ' 7 2 , a pastor at I mmanuel Lutheran church in Silverton, Ore . , was, by his own admission, not a top scholar athlete, though his grade point average was " nearly respectable" by the time he graduated , and as a 440 runner, he was a member of a fine mile relay team that won a conference champion­ ship. But he received a different kind of help and support . Originally attracted to PLU by football coach Roy Carlson , he suffered a serious mill injury the summer before his freshman year. The injury ended his football career, and seri­ ously affected his early studies at PLU . But Carlson remained supportive, and Wil­ son was attracted to the track program by coach Paul Hoseth , who offered tireless encouragement to an athlete who had been told he would never run again . At the same time the " not very serious young Protestant" met a young woman, M ar­ cia Taylor, who encouraged his participation in University Congregation. Campus pastors Donald Taylor, Gordon Lathrop and the late Jim Beckman were "profoundly authentic " in addressing " ultimate questions " raised by Wilson 's accidental brush with death . Pastor Taylor confirmed him, and he became president of the Universty Congrega­ tion . H is participation in PLU ' s campus minis­ try , encouraged by coaches like Paul Hoseth , enabled him to pursue a theological education and the call to pastoral ministry. He and M arcia (Pastor Taylor's daughter) have been married now for 22 years and have • three children.

' A Sense of Place'


tudents studying " S ma l l Towns i n the West" were traveling too. Their journeys were more limit­ ed, but the i r goal was more focused . History professor A rt Martinson' s students were to seek the answers to several basic ques­ tions about the ir selected towns : Why is the town there? What is the difference between its " natu­ ral " landscape and "built" land­ scape? Does location and a "sense of place " have anything to do with the town's image and the individu­ a l ' s search for meaning in a com­ plex world? Themes were to be water, trans-

They began w ith the natural landscape, taking note of the ter­ rain, forest and plant growth , the presence of water, and perhaps a word or two about c limate. Then they progressed to the commercial and residential areas, noting their character. "Is there anything historical in a structure ' s presence? Try t o make the connec­ tion . " The small towns had a certain fascination for students who, by and large , had grown up in urban environment s . They sensed an appreciation of root : peop l e , sometimes seve raJ generation o f families, l iving i n , o r close t one place. Some towns were difficult to define . Wilkerson, Wash . , for example . i s an old min ing town that c uld now be described as a bedroom community . Some people l ive and work there and some have generational ties. " But there are people tbat l ive there who don ' t work there , and people who work there who don' t l ive there, " said Martinson. That makes determina­ tion of the town ' s identity more complex.

Interim Class Reminiscent Of Baseball 's 'Hot Stove ' Leagues n their g randpare nts day it was caned the Hot Stove League. M yth has it that men would pass the cold, dark days of winter around the potbel l ie d stove in the local general store deb ting the merits of their favorite baseball teams and players and regal ing one another with their encyclope­ dic recall of diamond trivia . For a few days this January, 22 of their descendents, 20 men and two women, had a similar experi­ ence in an I nterim class labeled " Take Me Out To The B a l l ­ game . " It was taught by PLU ' s longtime athletic trainer, Gary Nicholson, who once plied his pecialty w ith the Chicago Cubs and the Seattle Mariners. The class was populated by a number f sel f-described " base­ ba l l fanatics , " s veral of whom recall d that it was baseball that helped them forge a bond with their fathers when they were young . ' ' I ' m always talking baseball with my father, " said Ron Wil­ son, a junior nursing major from Colorado Springs, Colo . , who now has his own " hometown" team to root for, the Colorado Rockies . " Baseball is a hand-me-down tradition, " he continued , noting that he and his father now finally '

get to enjoy going to major league games together. Wilson added , " Baseball is still clean-cut fun : peanuts , hot dogs , sound effects , time between plays to analyze the game and the play­ ers, and time to really talk to your companions. " Nicholson ' s students indulged in some of the traditional Hot Stove topic s , but their teac her also brought in elements of sociology , economics, communications, engi­ neering and a variety of other top­ ics. Though their wanderings led them both backward and forward in time, the c lass generally con­ centrated on one of baseball ' s golden eras, 1 947-5 7 . Nicholson called attention to the Negro leagues of the first half century and Jackie Robinson' s breaking of baseball ' s color barrier, as well as the professional women 's leagues of the World War II era. They studied ballparks: " In the old stadiums you could get closer to the players , " Nicholson recall­ ed . "A lot of old timers don 't like today' s 'cookie cutter' parks . " Nicholson recruited guest speak­ ers , including veteran radio and television announcer Bob Robert­ son, who demonstrated a " game recreation , " where announcers would take i n n i n g -b y - i nn i ng

New MAE Program Aids Potential Teachers From Other Professions College graduates in other pro­ fessions who would like to teach can take advantage of a new 1 5month graduate program at PLU that offers a master of arts in edu­ cation degree with an initial teach­ ing certificate. The new program responds to the needs of today ' s changing job market by efficiently combining two programs into one , according to School of Education graduate programs coordinator Leon Reis­ berg. In the past, only the undergradu­ ate program at PLU offered a teaching certificate. Graduate pro­ grams are offered in other educa­ tion spec ialties , including educa­ tional administration, educational psychology , literacy education and special education. "Today, however, many people with bachelor ' s degrees in other fields are interested in becoming teachers , " said Reisberg . " This program responds to their ne eds. By earning a master' degree along with a teach ing ceni teate, graduates of the program q ualify fOT a h igher salary on the state­ adop ted teach e r 'alary schedule, "

he indicated. Students progress through the program with a "cohort group , " a close association of students with common goals and experiences. They begin the program this com­ ing summer and complete a core of 10 courses together through the summer of 1 995 . In addition to the common core , students select courses i n one of four endorse­ ment areas , including elementary, secondary , special education , or early childhood special education. " The cohort group promotes the formation of supportive relation­ ships, and the sharing of experi­ ences a nd insights , " Reisberg pointed out . .. Each teaching certificate will list at least one area of endorsement, or specialty . The PLU School of Education emphasizes early and on-going field experiences. Its national and regional acc reditations and its record of high placement rates rank it as one of the most resp et­ ed program ' in lh region . For more information call Le 0 Reisberg at 535 -7280.

The banquet will be held in Olson Auditorium at 6 p . m . Westering ' s record i s unequaled in the National As oc iation of [ntercollegiate Athletic s ( NAJA) , of which PLU is a member . His Lute teams have made s i x NAIA Division II national football championship game appearances, winning titles in 1 980, 1 987 and 1 993 , and have been in the nation­ al playoffs six other times in the past 1 5 years . The 1 993 season marked his 22nd year at the helm of the PLU program, and his 1 8 1 v ictories make him the schoo l ' s all-time winningest coach . With 225 overa l l victories as a col le­ giate coach, he has more wins than any other active NAIA head foot­ ball coach . The recently concluded cam­ paign also brought him the honor of being named the NAIA Divi­ sion Division II Footbal l Coach of the Year, his second such honor. Winning and success, however, are by-products of his overall l ifestyle and coaching philosophy . His PHD (Pride, Hustle, Desire) ' brand of footba l l emphasizes a double-win theme : not only victo­ ry on the scoreboard , but more importantly , the satisfaction of playing to one ' s God-given poten-

national parks and the art of con­ ducting . The cost for each Elderhostel session, which includes a l l three non-credit classes, housing, meals and extracurricular activities at PLU , i s $3 1 5 .

vid Wallin didn't count on a close encounter with a charg­ ing el phant when he decided to sp nd a semester abroad in India , but i t happened , du ring a j ungle safari at a wildlife refuge . The elephant charged out of the forest directly at him and his com­ panions . They jumped aside , and fortunately , the elephant kept on going. " Our guide had frozen when he heard the booming sound , " Wallin recalled . "He knew what was coming. " David understood the reason for the elephant' s behavior, a reason related to Dav i d ' s reasons for studying in the ancient land , He is con erne ab ul developm nt and the environment in developing countries. "There have been more of those incidents with elephants recently , and it is because the elephants are being threatened , " said the junior political science and global studies major from Eatonville, Wash. "In India, only six percent of the origi­ nal forests remain, so habitat for wildlife is greatly diminished . " Wallin was participating in a community development program in India. Besides assisting in developmental research, he and 1 4 other students from Lutheran col-

leges were taking a crash course in the life, politics and economics of India. " We had six hours of lectures every day , " he said . "We heard over 70 speakers on every con­ ceivable subject: politics, philoso­ phy , economics, wome n ' s studie s , and the environment. There were speakers pro and con on many subjects .

b able to help them. " The guiding principle , he said , is "capability to function , " deter­ mining what is a basic need , or a basic right, and to help the people achieve those needs and rights . The experience in India was indeed culture shock. The environ­ mental degradation was extreme , by U . S . standards , as was the poverty . Women are oppressed in many ways, even to the point of spousal murder for minor reasons . " The inferiority of women is an

accepted fact , " W a l l i n said . " Most seem obl iv ious to their , oppress ion. ' W a l l i n ' s concerns about h is world brought him to PLU . " I came because o f the global studies program, " he said . "It was the only school to which I applied . " Eventually he would like to work overseas. " I would like to see the whole world , " he mused . "I think of myself as a citizen of the world , not just of one coun­ • try . "

PLU Students Aid Businesses In Partnership With United Way When former PLU administrator Ethan " Rick" A l len was named executive director of the Taco­ m' /Pierce County United Way last fall . he found that his new slaff w s aIr ady famil iar with PLU . PLU bu ine e n J oseph McCann, bu iness professor St ve Thra her and Allen's predecessor, Frank Hage l , had drafted a pro­ gram that puts teams of PLU stu­ dents in a staff support capacity on specific projects . According to Thrasher, each team of two or more students works with a corporate volunteer and a selected agency to accom­ plish a spec ific business-rel ated objective, under the supervision of joint PLU/United Way leadership. Students assist in strategic plan­ ning, install ing accounting or financial systems , in designing and implementing market surveys , or study ing operat ions, Thrasher said .

" W it h bu dgetary con ' t ra ' n ts today , organ izations can seld m afford the technical assistance th y may need to increase efficiency , so they save m ney , " said Thrash­ er. " At the sa e time , student learn read ily from ' real ort · experiences. So both organizations and students benefit, he added .

Responsible Christian Stewardship

By Jon B. Olson '62


t is i mpossible these days to avoid in the news media opin­ ions, options and thoughts about health care in the United States. President Clinton has made this issue his number-one priority and , I believe , rightly so. The health of all Americans is vital to maintaining our national standard of living over the long run ; giving all who live here access to health care will begin the process of assuring people a high quality of life regardless of their personal ability to pay for care . As Chris­ tians we s h ou l d applaud this effort . A nd we should expect, maybe even demand, that certain principles be included in the Cl in­ ton health care plan . Mr. Clinton states that universal access, simplicity , and choice be key elements of the plan . A s Christians, w e should ask more . I believe we should demand, as add itional elemen t s , pers onal responsib ility , personal account­ abil ity for our actions and our stewardship of resources . God asks us to be stewards of creation, ourselves included . Cer­ tainly we are not all equal and do not possess the same abilities . Diversity in life and lifestyle are part of being human. Stewardship involves responsibility . As Chris­ tians we must be responsible for what we have been given , both what is natural (our person) and what we have accumulated . Stew­ ardship requires us to be responsi­ ble both to ourselves and to others.


A steward u nderstands that resources are finite and must be managed w U if they are to benefit all creation . The present health care issue requires us, as people of God, to use wisely the resources given us, not to use personal desire as our only measure of responsibil ity . Stewardship deals w ith conse­ quences . Universal access is not necessarily equal to i mproved health . Having access to health care (preventative, primary , acute) does not give us license to overuse or m isuse available resource s . A smoker risks not only his or her own life prematurely but also may end up using l imited health care resou rces u n w i sely . This we should not tolerate. Health care services are expen­ sive and consume a large part of GDP (gross domestic product) - 1 4 percent. Providing u n iversal access ibility will increase , not decrease , these costs in the short term. Only responsible lifestyles, emphasizing health , well ness and wholeness, will over time cause our increasing costs for health care to begin to slow down. No projec­ tion yet made shows any decrease in the total cost of health care , only a possible decrease in the rate of increase. The amount Americans spend on health - from prevention to inter­ vention to end of life - will contin­ ue to grow as a percentage of the GDP for some time to come . Since some claim that 60 percent of all health care costs are sustained in the last 30 days of life, a big issue is coming to understand that death

is a part of life - both at the time of birth (infant mortality) and for those in their most senior of years . God , by making humank i nd mortal , made death a part of l ife. Humankind has struggled with this since Adam and Eve . We have been taught to fear death as evil, as an ending, rather than seeing it as a new beginning , a new life , an eternal l i fe , one with the Father gloriou s , a culminatio n , a return from whence we came . Responsible Christians should understand this issue and allow for death - and new l i fe - to come forward , to allow one l ife to be completed so another can begin or be enhanced . This is truly being stewards - stewards of life and of resources. The policy now being debated across this land will have as one of its outcomes universal access . Will thi s , however, improve health , enhance our personal well-being, bring forward a new and more responsible sense of stewardship, both personal and societal? The Christian perspective must refocus on human responsibility on stewardship of ourselves and the resources g iven us to use. Christians must understand that preservation of life at all costs may sound good but defeats God ' s promise to us that death i s only a transition to a greater life eternaL Jon B.

Carol Coe '85 , a teacher at Puy­ allup H jgh School , earned the top teacher designation for helping devel op that school ' s ' 'Vi ' ions" program. The announcement was made by another PLU alumna, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Judith Billings ' 6 1 . Sanford, whose master of busi­ ness administration degree from PLU is one of four degrees she hold s , received national attention for e�tablishing the first nursing unit operating as a private prac­ tice . T he innovative p rogram allows nurses in the hospital ' s 24bed respiratory unit to better care for their often-repeat patients.

" Coe ' s " Vision " program is described as a " scbool w ithin a school . " She teaches 1 1 th and 1 2th graders American govern­ ment , contemporary problems, leadership and sociology. She also developed a program called ENCORE (Enriching Nor­ mal Curriculum Outside the Regu­ lar E nv i ronment) .

Gerald Lider

Alum's Norwegian Ancestor Was ' Father Of Modern Skiing' Lillehammer Was Legacy I n recent weeks the snowy slopes near Lilleharnmer , Nor­ way , have welcomed the finest , most dazzling skiers in the world for the 1 994 Winter Oly mpics , cal led the "Green Oly mpics" to recognize Norway ' s leading role in environmental protection. Those skiers , and mill ions of others around the world , are reap­ ing the legacy of a 1 9th Century Norwegian Sandre Norh e i m , who, thou gh long fo rgotte n , i s n o w revered a s t h e " father o f modern skiing . " Norhe im was also the uncle of the grandfather of Gerald Lider, a 1 947 PLU alumnus . For centu r i e s , s k i i n g h a d remained i n a primitive state . Then Norheim, who was born i n M orgedal , Norway , i n 1 825 , invented the bindings around the heel that made it possible to jump

• •

and turn without worrying about skis falling off. Norheim also developed Tele­ mark skis with tapered sides that are very similar to modern slalom skis . He also invented the Tele­ mark tu rn, the Christiana turn and the Telemark style of j u mping. Norheim emigrated to the Unit­ ed States in 1 8 84 and died as an unknown homesteader near Minot, N . D . , 1 897 . But today , statues commemorate his achievements in both M inot and Morgedal . where the 1 994 Olympic flame began its ceremonial trek to Lillehammer. Lider , a retired educator now l iv ing in Bellevue, Wash . , has extensively researched his ances­ tor. Writings , photographs and other art ifacts about Norheim he has collected have been on exhibit in PLU ' s Scandinavian Cultural Center.

" The majority of judges are not excited about this program, " she said.

First All-Star Soccer Game Features Lutes The first ever Senior B wi women's all-star soccer game , fea­ turing the lOp NAIA seruor players thr ughout the country will have a defmile Pacinc Lutheran flavor to it. Repre enting tbe Lutes w i ll be head coach Dr. Colleen Hacker . who will coach the We t team , and PLU senior goalkeeper B renda Lichtenwalter , a two-time NAIA All-America performer, who will be one of 18 members of the West squad . The game will be played on Sat­ urday, April 23 on the campus of Birmingham Southern Col lege i n Birmingham, Alabama . In addition to her role as coach , Dr. Hacker will also be one of several featured speakers at a forum and clinic to be held in con­ junction with the all-star game . Pacific Luth ran has won three NAIA national women ' s soccer championships and finished sec­ ond two other times in the past six seasons . Dr. Hacker has compiled an impressive 209-44- 1 6 ( . 807 winning percentage) record in her 1 3 seasons as PLU ' s head coach. Lichtenwalter's status as one of the top goalkeepers in the country is one reason that the Lutes have been so successful in recent years . The Fife High School product compiled a 0 . 74 goals against average in four seasons at PLU, including 37 shutouts as a starter during her sophomore , junior and senior years . She was the starting keeper on national champion ( 1 99 1 ) a nd national runner-up ( 1 992) teams, and earned NAIA second team All-A merica honors this season and honorable mention All-America accord as a junior.

Experience May Solve Baseball Team Puzzle


Benson's 25 Years As Tennis Coach Marked By Servanthood Little did M ike Benson realize when he became the head coach of the PLU men ' s tennis team in 1 970 that he would be in that posi­ tion for so long , or that he would coach one of the school ' s most successful athletic teams . But both have happened. Benson is in his silver anniversa­ ry year coaching the men ' s pro­ gram. Along the way , PLU teams under Benson ' s tutelage have gar­ nered 1 8 NCIC and 1 2 District 1 crowns . Indud ing h is four years as head coach of the women ' s pro­ gram, Benson has accumulated a 404-202 dual match record. For the first 1 1 years of h is coaching tenure, Benson was a part-time coach. Then , in 1 98 1 , he left his role as a teaching profes­ s ional in the Tacoma area to become the full-time athletic facil­ ities coordinator and tennis coach. But there ' s more to Benson ' s story than just w ins (many) and losses (few) . His influence on fac­ ulty , staff and students give testi­ mony to a deep commitment to

people , and to God . " M ike is one who makes life better for anyone he meets , " says Dr. David Olson , director of ath­ letics and the man who hired Ben­ son 25 years ago. "I don't remem­ ber a day that hasn't been a joy to work with him. "Whether it be coaching , teach­ ing or coordinating athletic facili­ ties , M ike performs his duties con­ sistently w ith excellence and with a servanthood orientation. He has been a credit to PLU from the first day he walked on this campus . " Paul Hoseth , the assistant dean of the School of Physical Educa­ tion and a member of the athletic department coaching staff, agrees w ith Olson ' s assessment of Ben­ son . "The numbers speak for themselves . But the positive impact that he has had on young people that have gone through here is significantly more impor­ tant and much longer lasting . " Congratulations , Coach Benson, on 25 years as PLU ' s men ' s tennis coach.

Male Netters Anticipate Run At Conference, District Honors Coach Mike Benson's 25th year as Pacific Lutheran men ' s tennis coach won't be unusual or differ­ ent in at least one regard - the 1 994 Lute team has potential to make a run at both the Northwest Conference of Independent Col­ leges and NAIA District 1 titles . PLU teams under Benson ' s tute­ l age know something about w in­ ning , having garnered 1 8 NCIC and 12 District 1 crowns in the coach ' s 24 previous years at PLU . The top player is a newcomer, senior left-hander Lars Vetterstad. This skillfu l Norwegian , who attended college in Norway for

Last year', Pacific Luthe ran basebal l squad was a puzzle, s trugg ling to a 1 2 -25 record de pite having the individual talent to be a on�rence con lender. This year, Coach Larry Marshall has what may be the final piece neces­ sary to put that puzzle together experience , and tbu greate matu­ rity . tability and team cohesive­ nes s . Se ven 0 the nine senio rs have been in the program fou r years, and Coach M arshall hopes they provide leadership . Pitching looks to be the Lutes' greatest trength , as they return a number of legitimate starters. The staff is led by big , strong seniors Kyle Stancato, Tully Tay lor and Scott Bakke, and sophomore Joel Barnett. Barnett, who last year pitched PLU ' s first-ever no-hitter and led the team in strikeouts, had a team-high nine starts , followed by Taylor with eight and Stancato with seven. Bakke was primarily a rel ief p itcher last year, making only one start in 10 appearances . All four have the stuff and the staying power to pitch well for a complete game . Competing fo r the starting catching spot w il l be senior M ike Morgan and sophomore Aaron Slagle. The infield w ill be directed by a pair of seniors who have been starters for three season-first base­ man Scott Saas, a team leader on and off the field, and second base­ man Brian Johnson , who started 35 games last year. Junior short­ stop Brett Stevenson covers a lot of ground , can make a strong throw from the hole and is also a base-stealing threat. Senior Bill Cohen returns at third base . John­ son, Sass and Cohen comprise the offensive backbone of the squad, batting . 395 , . 367 , and . 337 last year, respectively . Returning standouts i n the out­ field include senior David Sand­ berg, who has great fielding range and is a base-stealing threat , as evidenced by his team-high 1 7 swipes last year. He was the only Lute player to start in and play all 37 games last year. Sopho m ore Garrett Suehiro, an All-District 1 pick as a freshman w ith a . 977 fielding percentage and . 309 bat­ ting average, returns in rightfield.

two years before spending half of last year at Indiana State, will play h is first season of collegiate tennis at PLU . Scrappy Chris Egan, a 1 994 co­ captain who played at No. 1 sin­ gles throughout 1 993 , and Scott Erickso n , who was No . 2 last year, lead a group of outstanding vetera n s . Egan and E rickson teamed up as the NCIC champion­ ship No. 3 doubles team. Erickson certainly made his mark in his first collegiate season , w inning the NCIC s ingles crown at No. 2 along with his doubles titl e , and earning the NCIC ' s Player of the Year award. He was also named

by his teammates as Most Valu­ able Player and Most Inspirational Player in 1 993 . Other top returnees i nclude senior co captain Jon Zepp and j uniors Andy Jansen, Shane Velez , Bryant Green and Rocky Pou l i n . Among them, this group combined for six conference singles and dou­ bles championships in 1 993 . In the newcomer category i n addition t o Vetterstad is Paul Hen­ ry , who played his prep tennis in Anchorage, Alaska, and last year attended Cornell University . He is another talented player w ith a legitimate shot at a top six spot. The 1 994 Lutes will look to con-

tinue the momentum that in 1 993 gave them the conference title, a third place D istrict 1 finish and wins over NCAA Division 1 teams Washington State , U niversity of Idaho and Eastern Washington.

Weekly , Riddall Nam ed To NAIA All-Ame rican First Team Two PLU footba l l players, Marc Weekly and Ted Riddall , were named to the NAIA Division II A l l - A me r ican fi rst team announced in January . For Weekly , the honor was the crowning achievement to a season in which he broke 49 national , conference and school records in leading the Lutes to the Division II national championship. Weekly , a senior from Puyallup, Wash . , and Riddall , are the first

Lutes to make the first team since tight end John Gradwohl in 1 989. Riddall is a junior from Yelm, Wash . PLU tight end Gavin Stanley, who broke the school record for catches in a season, made the sec­ ond team. Offensive lineman Jeff Douglas, running back Chad Bar­ nett, defens ive l i nemen Albert Jackson and Jason Thiel and l ine­ backer Judd Benedick were honor­ able mention picks.

Women's Tennis Team Pins Hopes On Veterans After coaching one of his deep­ est teams ever in 1 993 , women's tennis mentor Rusty Carlson may be blessed with even more talent throughout the ladder for the 1 994 campaign. Last year's squad won its second straight conference title and fifth in seven years, finished a strong fourth at the district tourna­ ment and pulled a dual-match upset over District 1 champion Puget Sound . This year, Carlson has his sights set even higher. Carlson welcomes back a talent­ ed , cohesive group, led by senior

Shannon Tilly , junior Sarah (Per­ sonne) Campbell and sophomore Beth Dorsey . Tilly , one of two returning seniors , is a three-time Northwest Conference of Indepen­ dent Col leges (NCIC) champion and is also a superior doubles player, having spent three years on top of the Lute doubles ladder. Dorsey used her competitive nature and g reat court sense to capture the No. 1 singles spot as a freshman. At this point, however, she has had that spot taken away by Campbell .

Winter Sports Wrapup WOMEN'S BASKETBALL To say the 1 993-94 season was a difficult one for the Lutes would be a significant understatement. The team struggled to a 2-22 overall record , including a 0- 1 2 record in conference contests . Along the way were 1 9 straight losses . Still, the young team (there was only one senior) got plenty of experi­ ence, which will give Coach Mary Ann Kluge something to build on next year. Certainly a key foundation upon which to build will be Jennifer Riches. The sophomore forward led the Lutes in both scoring ( 1 3 . 1 points) and rebounding (7 . 8) this season . She was an honorable mention all-conference selection. MEN'S BASKETBALL One of the maj or highlights of the season was an all-conference selec­ tion for j unior forward Matt Ashworth . The Yakima product led the team in scoring ( 1 6 .0 points) and rebounds (7 . 4) to earn second team honors . his three years at PLU , Ashworth has scored 669 points, just 3 1 short of the 1 ,OOO-point standard . With a performance next season rivaling this one, he should finish his career as one of the Top 10 all-time point scorers at Pacific Lutheran . Earning honorable mention all-conference accord was senior DeNathan Williams . The Lutes finished the season with an 8- 1 9 overall record , including a 2- 1 0 mark in conference play . WRESTLING Pacific Lutheran sent fou r wrestlers to the NAIA National Wrestling Championships March 1 1 - 1 2 in Butte, Montana. The w restler with the best chance to w in was senior 1 5 8-pounder Brian Peterson , who was second at 1 50 pounds in last year's championship meet. Peterson has compiled an incredible 39-5 dual match record this season . Other wrestlers competing at nationals were I 1 8-pounder Quoc Nguy­ en, 1 26-pounder Roy Gonzales and 1 34-pounder Nate Button. Nguyen fmished eighth and Button was seventh in the respective weight classes la t year. Both Peterson and Gonzale should earn NAJA All -America Scholar­ Athlete honors for the second straight year. To quarfy , n athlete ha to have earned a berth at the 0 ti nal toum menl and also maintain a 3 . s0-or-better grade point average.

Track & Field Teams May Be Among Strongest In Lute History Last season produced a long list of accompl i shments for head coach Brad Moore and the Lute men ' s track and field team - an undefeated regular season, confer­ ence and d istrict championsh ips , and an eighth place finish at the NAIA National Championships . And it looks as if 1 994 will just bring more of the same with the squad returning nearly intact and the addition of some of the state ' s most highly touted recruits. Three of four 1 993 first team All-Americans retu rn, including hammer thrower Jason Thiel (third at nationals) , decathlete D. J . Sey­ del (fifth) and long jumper Dan Colleran (second) . Colleran also holds the PLU high jump record at 6- 1 0 3/4. The Lutes should continue their dominance in the hammer throw , as throwing coach Jerry Russell brings back four of the six compet­ itors who swept the conference meet . Senior Steve O wens , who fin­ ished 1 2th at nationals in the 1 0 ,000 meters , and conference steeplechase champion T rent Erickson , lead the long-d istance returnees .

If the newcomers reach their potential , and if the returnees con­ tinue on their present courses, the Lutes could qu ite possibly field one of the strongest men ' s track and field teams in PLU history . The Lute women ' s track and field team lost a large group to graduation last spring, so Moore has rebuilding to do . However, he welcomes back several 1 993 first team All-American s , and will fill the team's holes w ith some excep­ tional recruits . Among the All-America return­ ees is ju nior Wendy Cordeiro, who holds PLU records in both the d iscus and shot put and finished fifth and seventh at nationals, respectivel y , in those events . Three of the four members of the All-America 4x400 relay team j uniors Amy Saathoff and Kristi Keene and sophomo re Sandy Metzger, are back for the Lutes. It all adds up to another very strong Lute contingent, and , based on proj ections throughout the con­ ference and district, one that has a very solid shot at a District 1 championship and a very high national finish.

Winning Tradition Could Mean Return To Softball Title Game Generally, the thought of w in­ ning traditions in athletics brings to mind the UCLA men' s basket­ ball team in the 1 960s and 70s, the great Green Bay Packers of head coach V ince Lombardi in the 1 960s , and the Bronx Bombers, the Babe Ruth- and Lou Gehrig­ led New York Yankees of the 1 920s and 30s . How about this for a w inning PLU tradition: Women' s softball . There are two traditions associ­ ated with the program. First , the Lutes have been very successful in Ralph Weekly ' s tenure at PLU, winning 79 percent of their games . The other tradition is somewhat unusual - the Lutes have made an NAIA national championship game appearance in every even year since 1 98 8 . The Lutes won national titles in 1 98 8 and 1 990, and finished second in 1 992 . Head coach Ralph Weekly thinks that the Lutes can not only maintain the tradition of winning softball , but of reaching the NAIA champion­ ship game in this even year of 1 994 . Weekly must replace everal

outstanding players , including A ll­ America pitcher Becky Hoddevik and catcher Toni Castrey , but he feels that an outstanding freshman group should help fill in some of the gaps. A pair of 1 993 A l l -Americans will anchor the team. At first base w i l l be A ndrea Farquhar, a first team pick last year, and moving from short to second will be Jenny S wanson, an honorable mention choice in '93. The outfield is in good shape as wel l , w ith senior slugger Nancy Bronson, a 1 993 All-District play­ er and 1 994 captain, in right, and A l l-Conference and A l l-District j u nior Stacy Lanning covePing center. These veterans , plus the new­ comers, should keep alive PLU ' s winning tradition i n softball .

ur whole environment can be considered an endan­ gered species. We see dete­ rioration at the g lobal leve l , the national level and the community level - the pollution of our air, the overuse of our water resourc­ es, the loss of many valued spe­ cies, the contamination of our waters, and the decline in our fos­ sil fuel resources. Pacific Lutheran U niversity is part of this global ecosystem and we must be aware of how our actions on the PLU campus impact the environment of our communi­ ty, our nation, and the Earth. At PLU these concerns are being addressed in many ways, by vari­ ous groups that examine the issues, strive to make changes, and work to educate their fellow commu nity membe r s . These groups involve students, staff and faculty who are actively seeking to address the issue of our endan­ gered environment. The Environmental Studies Pro­ gram is an academic program which began in the early 1 970's. The program , overseen by a facul­ ty committee, began by offering a certificate in Environmental Stud­ ies. In the spring of 1 992 , a new minor in Environmental Studies was established . Students in this program take a series of courses that give them a broad interdisci­ plinary perspective on environ­ mental issues. One of the key parts of the minor is a course titled Environmental Methods of Investi­ gation that examines the complexi­ ties of watershed management,

focusing on the nearby Clover Creek system. In their capstone research pro­ ject, students examine an environ­ mental issue through an interdisci­ plinary approach. Some examples of recent capstones include the design of a chemical exchange program to reduce hazardous waste , an examination of the use of constructed wetlands as waste water treatment sites, and an assessment of resource use at PLU. The program has also worked to increase environmental aw areness on campus by sponsoring speakers such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. The enroll ment in this program is growing rapidly, reflecting the increasing student interest in envi­ ronmental issues. Dirt People for Earth , founded in 1 989 , is a student environmen­ tal action group that focuses on environmental awareness , educa­ tion, and action at PLU and in the surrounding community. Some of the projects addressed by this group include Earth Day celebra­ tions, tree pl anting , bringing speakers to campus, recycling efforts , and Green Games - an interdorm resource conservation competition organized in the spring of 1 993 . In the spring of 1 993 , the Resi­ dence Hall Council established the position of Environmental Activi­ ties Coordinators (EAC ' s) in a few of the dorms. These students were to serve as the focal point for edu­ cation about resource use, waste reduction and recycling in the resi­ dential life of their fel low stu­ dents. During this academic year ( 1 993-1 994) , EAC ' s were desig­ nated in every dorm and a new executive position was created on the Residence Hall Council to coordinate the activities of all the dorms. " One of the issues that has long concerned and involved students at PLU is recycling . Students insti­ gated paper recycling in offices in the mid- 1 980 ' s and collection of cans, glass and paper in the dorms at the end of the 1 98 0 ' s . These activities are now coordinated by continued on page 3 I

the Physical Plant in partnership with the Tacoma Public Schools' j b training program for students with disabilities . At the request of Dirt People, Pre ident Rieke in 1 99 1 estab­ lished the Sol id Waste Manage­ ment and Recyc l ing Com mittee, composed of students, staff and faculty , to oversee the recycl ing program at PL U. While there is still much to be done in the area of recycling, PLU is making a signif­ icant contribution to reducing the solid waste stream - du ring the 1 992- 1 993 academic year, 22 % of the olid waste generated at PLU was col lected for recycling. The Environmental Issues Com­ mittee, consisting of faculty , staff and students, was appointed by President Anderson in the fal l of 1 992 to adv ise the un iversity on matters of environmental concern. One of the first issues add ressed by the committee was the concern over the location of the new Mary Russe ll .Baker M i Building. A compromis was r ached by the committee that preserved more of the oak habitat on the hil lside and established a mitigation site to i ntroduce more native planting to the PLU campus. The committee will continue to address the envi­ ronmental practi es of the univer­ sity and it will strive to coordinate the numerous constructive efforts that presently occur in many sec­ tors f the campus . The PLU campus is actively addressing many environmental issues, through the efforts of stu­ dents, faculty and staff. We, l ike the rest of community , nation and world, have much that must and will change as we strive to save our endangered environment. As these env ironmental activities increase on the PLU campns in the future, we w i l l serve as a model to the surrounding community . • * * *

o d Shirts, Ancient Forests, Redemption By Robert L. Stivers

ry ing to say something new in the Pac ific N o rthwest about spotted owl s , ancient fi rests, and th plight of rural log­ ging communities i · l ike trying to find original stories about Elvis. Anyone who reads Scene also reads the newspapers and knows all about Judge Dwyer's judicial deci­ sions, spotted owl s, economic sta­ t i stics on unemploy me nt , and changes in the forest products industry . Read ing stops after a few paragraphs and the busy alum turns to the class notes for the latest news on fel low boomers in Bellevue. The recycle bin follows. and the alum feels good about saving another tree. " Maybe the next time , " the alum resolves, " I ' l l read those articles . " I just don't feel like recycl ing old ideas . So let me go back a few weeks to Easter, and in a round about way bring you forward to the future of our forests. The debat over the magn ificent temperate rain forests of the Pacific Northwest is a foretaste of things to come in two way s . First . it is a foretaste of future environmental debates, for example, the one gath­ ering over depleted salmon runs. It is a classic case of human need in conflict with the integrity of envi­ ronmental systems. All the ingredi­ ents are in this debate , and we would do well to learn our econom­ ic, politica l , scientific and ethical lessons for new applications. Second , it is a foretaste of a new appreciation of nature. A consider­ ation of forests has some important things to tell us about the relation to nature that has been promised in Jesus Christ. Easter is the preeminent C hris­ tian day . On this day Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and look fo rward to their own redemption and the redemp­ tion of the whole creation . Recently I had occasion with family and friends to celebrate Easter at a church I seldom attend, to l isten to a preacher I have seldom heard . His sennon was about the re ur­ rection of Jesus Christ. its signi fi­ cance for him being the traditional notion of immort ality . He pulled out a well worn old shirt to i llus­ trate the " faded glory" of this l i fe and elaborat on the pains of dis­ ease and the aginb of the body . Then to i l lustrate the resurrection he held up a brand new, immaculate white sweatshirt. Heaven, he said, is like this white sh irt and is what Jesus promises. Something troubled me . The fad-

ed but friendly old shirt seemed so much more appealing than the anti­ septic . sterile and maybe even starched sweatshirt he 0 admired . If Jesus' resurrection means trading in an old friend of a shirt for the straight jacket he offered, I didn't want any part of it. As I thought more about it, I had to admit the continuing power of his image of heaven. White clouds and robes, harps, disembodied spirits, angels, and choirs were the stuff of my childhood training. This classi­ cal Greek imagery is imprinted on our minds. however anthropocen­ tric, however boring, and however l ittle it addresses the central prob­ lem of human life , which is sin . Jesus ' cross and resurrection is much more about redemption from sin than it i s about release from mortal bod ies for i mmortal i ty in otherworldly spl endor. By sin I mean the universal and thorough­ going tendency of human beings i n their li mited freedom to break rela­ tionships wit God , other humans, themselves, and the rest of nature. Sin is decidedly this worldly . Jesus' cross points to the depth of sin, his resurrection to the grace of God that empowers us for l ives of integ­ rity in the midst of sin. Living the redeemed [ i fe in Christ means put­ ting on well worn old sh irts and digging in the dirt of life as Jesus did with the woman taken in adul­ tery . There are some messages in this for our ancient forests . Superficial­ ly one is struck by the similarity of the traditional Greek image of heaven and some modem notions of forests. Ancient forests in the white sweatshirt view is valuable timber that is rotting and going to waste (faded glory). What is needed is a total clearcut (death), a thorough cleaning of debris (the fire to come), and the planting of single­ species. scientific ally perfected new trees in sterile, straight lines (resurrection), all in the name of human good . The ancient forests tell a different story . A variety of tree species grow and die in a dynamic process. The forest floor is a mess of downed logs and twisted trunks, a tangled confusion of ferns and m sses. Trees are ragged , the can� opy uneven. Predation is the domi­ nant way of species interaction . Some might call this " faded glo­ ry , " but if you look, listen , smell , and feel carefully (taste at your own ri k) , you will find an amazingly fecund system that is quite capable of sustaining a large number of spe­ cies apart from human beings. While it is legitimate to use forests for human needs, to throw out this

old s hirt in the name of greater prosperity and control i a sin an a travesty . Beyond this superfici I analogy there is a new message of redemp­ tion in this. At first glance redemp­ tion would not seem to apply to the forests. Ancient forests and the crit­ ters who l ive there do not sin. Sin presupposes freedom, and the rest of nature is not free, at least not anywhere to the degree that humans are. When, for example, a potted owl snatches its prey from the top of a downed and decay ing log, we may find the act brutal in human terms, but it is not a sin . It is the way of life in a good system. Consequently, nature does not need rede mptio n . The cross and resurrection are human religious events. This does not mean, how­ ever, that redemption is irrelevant to nature. Since human sin is the primary cause of ecosystem disin­ tegrat ion , the redemption of humans from sin has a direct bear­ in n the su tai nability of ecosy s­ tems. Thi is specially true in th Pacific Northwest where only IO to 1 5 percent of the original ancient forests remain intact and where the spotted owl and several other spe­ c ies are in danger of ext inction. God is at work redeeming the for­ ests and species living in them by calling humans to recognize their powers of disintegration , by invit­ ing them to repentance, and by enabl ing them to l ive in a scarce world without the need to dominate and control . This is the message of Easter from the forests . The redemption of the whole creation means human caring for nature as if it were a well worn and valued old shirt . The foretaste of things to come is a new appreciation of the world's ecosys­ tems and the promise of God that we will one day l ive in harmony • with the rest of natu re. * * *

Animals Connect Us To Our Childhood Dreams And To Our Unconscious Selves


By Charles Bergman

have to say this for the ani mal s : while they may need to b e saved, unl ike us they do not need to be redeemed . They are what they are, and that gives them a profound dignity and self­ sufficiency . They do what they do, and that seems to be enough. No matter how terrible their plight may be , no matter how slim a species ' chances of survival, wild animals do not seek humans. It is we who seek them . It is we who need the animals . Usually , in discussions about endangered animals, we l ike to speak of what we can do to help the animal s. But perhaps here we can turn the tables for a moment, and ask what it is that animals can do for us. Like many of us, I often fear deep down that there is, ultimately, little we can actually do to save animals. Our efforts at preserving them are a lways well inte ntioned , and of course we should do everything we can, from taking down dams to preserving huge tracts of forests . But the forces at work, the forces that drive many species extinct and push the rest to the periphery of our lives, these forces are so powerful that they swamp most of our poor efforts. We save some creatures. But most animals, too many of them, continue on their own sad curve toward endangerment. Still , we aren' t as impotent as we might feel . I believe the great challenge for us, i n trying to do something for endangered spe­ cies, is to try to understand what it is that drives us to seek animals in the fIrSt place . The desire that makes it impossible for me to imagine living in a world without animals. The love that makes me happiest when I am in the presence of animal s . Perhaps if we understood more fully the lovely and varied habitats of the animals i n our hearts, we would find ourselves making more room for them i n our l ives . And on the planet. To understand the place of animals in our emotional lives, we have to turn to stories. It is through stories that we explore the emo­ tional meanings of our relationships with ani­ mal s . In that vein, I ' d l ike to tel l a story about how animals enter our hearts. Or per­ haps how they are already there, inside of us. I had gone to the Carizzo Plain three years ag . The Carizzo is a desert, a hot and alka­ line area west of the oil tields around Bakers­ field, Calif. I had gone there to study the endangered San Joaquin kit fox . It was the height of summer, late July. If the desert in the midst of summer is a landscape of peni­ tence , with its punishing and unforg iving heat, the evenings of that week had some-

thing portentous about them. I sat among the barren hills bordering the Carizzo Plains, waiting for the small kit foxes, with their incomparably beautiful ears and their gor­ geous gray and red pelage, to come out of their den at night. ' Every evening the sun went down in a purgatorial blaze and the entire sky above the blackened hills turned a fiery shade of red , like glowing metal . Not long before, Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines had erupted , and the ash from that explosion had just reached the coast of California. Throughout Southern Cal ifornia, the ash resulted in volcanic sunsets - as if the sky had exploded into night. In that light and heat, I could feel myself grow incandescent, like tungsten in a bulb, eager to burn brighter. I hid behind a small rock outcropping, the only cover on the oth­ erwise barren hil lside of dry earth , onion-yel­ low grasses , and Russian thistles . A nd I watched the fox den . O n the particular evening I a m thinking of, the foxes who lived in the den stayed out of sight. I wrote in my journal and waited , thinking of secrets and subterranean l ives and scenes that imply more than they show . Lying with my elbows on the rocks , I propped my binoculars up to my eyes , and watched the den . Then I had one of the most startling moments I have ever had watching animals: a sudden memory from my childhood. In my seventh-grade art class, the teacher had asked us to paint a picture of ourselves as we wanted to be when we got older. I painted a picture of myself that I had forgotten until that moment - though my parents had loved the painting, and had even had it framed and hung in our dining room . In the foreground of the painting, I had put a huge mallard in profile, beside a stream. In the background , I painted evergreen trees, with a deadfall lying horizontally across the plane of the picture. Behind the very jagged stump, I was standing half-conceal ed , visible from the waist up, wearing a red and black plaid jacket, and of all things - a kind of tam-o' shanter hat with a pompon on top. In the painting , I held the binoculars up to my eyes. They formed two black circles, like a raccoon mask, over my eyes . The black straps looped gracefully down and under my arms . As I looked that evening through my binoc­ ulars at the fox den, I suddenly remembered that image of me , painted i n the seventh grade, looking through binoculars - a strange pal impsest of the present and the past, desire and memory , art and reality . Though I had been a Boy Scout in school and had loved to camp, I was not a bird­ watcher and had ab olutely no thoughts of becoming one . I cannot tell you where this image of me as a birdwatcher had come from . But remembering it at that moment, by the fox den , was somehow deeply reassuring

to me , as if as a child I had unconsciously prophesied what I would later become. I now love to search for the rare and endan­ gered animal . Most of the time, I can 't tell you what it is, really , that I am searching for. I love to be taken by surprise, to have the meaning of the experience startle me, to be startled by the way life sneaks up on us. But in this image - a gift from the two foxes at this den - I had a powerful sense of being for the evening in full possession of myself. One of the times I am most completely myself, I thought, is when I ' m looking at animals. This is me , right now, sitting by a fox den, under a Pentecostai sky. Animals connect us to our childhood dreams and to our unconscious selves. To the parts of ourselves that know us better than we do What happened to that painting , i don 't know . My parents divorced, and it seems to have been lost in all the moves that followed , like so much else from that time in my life . I had no thought of the painting in over 20 years, but the memory was like recovering a very important piece of myself. And I believe there is something related in the attempt to recover endangered animal s, and the recov­ ery of parts of ourselves. Each of us can help the cause of endan­ gered animals by allowing the creatures to more fully inhabit our hearts. It is this greater intimacy with nature that we ' re after, not just numbers of owls that hover on the brink of extinctio n . But how do we recover those parts of ourselves that are bound up with wildlife, but which are increasingly lost and fo rgotten, just as animals are i ncreasingly lost from our l ives? The first thi ng is to relinquish a little per­ sonal control when you enter a landscape. You can try to v isit a remote or extreme continued on page 5

Endangered Species Act

Can A Balance Be Maintained? More Controversy See Ahead By Katie Nelson and Kim Bradford


erie of lectures at PLU during April potl ighted the changing landscape of the Endanger d Species Act (ESA), and the sometimes dismal futu re for animals it seeks LO protect. A U . S . congre ' �man , a PLU biology pro­ fessor and the head of a Northwest on erva­ tion program all spoke du ring th . erie , which was organized by the campus Environ­ mental Stu i Commiu e and the Center for Peace , lustic and th Envir m nt.

place - that's always good. In literature and myth, the wild natural scene is always a place where human desire is released and conven­ t ions slip their hold. That's when self­ di scovery becomes easier, where we can experience those parts of ourselves we nor­ mally conceal or hold in check. But you don ' t have to go anywhere remote. That is really only a metaphor. You can do it in your backyard , allowing yourself to see the famil iar in a new way . But in that land­ scape , attend carefully to what is happening outside , and open yourself to what you' re feel ing . These are the new ma rgins we ' re learning to explore, where it can be some­ times hard to know where we leave off and nature begins. This intersection of inside and outside, human and nature, self and other, is exactly the new region we need to be explor­ ing . The animals of the heart will b e different for each perso n . It is inevitable, like identity itself. The Native Americans knew this . That is why they had animal totems: animals with whom each person could enter into a special relationship. The ultra personal , the emotional , even the eccentric - they all suggest the emergence of a new , a postmodern , relationship with ani­ mals. We will never save what we don ' t truly de i re . And two features of this new relation­ ship would be the elebration in the diversity in the way we all comprehend the world, and n i ncrease of the sense of being that comes through the experience of ani I . To establish a newer and greater intimacy with other creatures: that is the goal I think we need to pursue, even as he nunal grow more scarce . It is the basis for both political a ·tiOD and social cha ge. I know my private i ion by the fox den left me ba rged and glowing a the . ky . •

the late Laura Kreidler, a former PLU a rt teacher and dean of women after whom PLU 's Kreidler hall is named , served 1 6 years with the Washington State Legislature and is now a representative for the state ' s inth District . Part o f the health and environ­ ment subcommittee, he has become familiar with the ESA , an act written in 1 97 3 . Kreidler has little doubt that the b i l l w i l l be renewed . He said the act has had a " p ro­ found and favorable impact on species that have been seriously threatened or endan­ gered. "We have had succes s , " he said. "We have seen animals removed from the (endan' \ gered species) list. " Some members of Congress believe that " if there's going to be an economic impact (on private property owners) , then we side with those who will be affected , " Kreidler said. The congressman said he anticipates that he will be in the middle of the conflict, arguing with strong opinions and working with changes while remembering the importance of the act' s original intentions . Kreidler said there has to be a way of coming to a consen­ sus on way s to protect species " not with brute strength and muscle but with thoughtful consideration. " Public hearings on the ESA will start soon but Kreidler is unsure whether or not it will pass before this session of Congress is over. He attributed the possible delay to election­ year caution. " I was born here on Puget Sound . My parents were born on Puget Sound . I'm going to take efforts to make sure our decisions don' t irreversibly turn back the clock, " Krei­ dler said. "But if I ' m going to do it right, I need your help , " he added , prompting the audience to w rite letters to members of Cong ress to express constituents' opinions or ask for cop­ ie of related bills. Not all of tbe federal government is looking to hange the ESA . Curt Smitch, the program supe rv isor t1 r the Pacific Northwest Habitat Conservation Plan Program in Olympia , told a PLU audienc later in the month that offi-

cials are trying to make the current law more en live . To accomplish thi agencies are beginning to tran iti n toward m re comprehensiv habitat conservation plans , Smitch said. In tead of creating a p l a n for one spec ies, only to later discover that a neighboring pe­ cie. i ' also threatened or endangered , biolo­ gi ts will begin [0 look at the veralJ Ian cape 0 ecosystem when designing a plan. Smitch, who ormerly orked for the State Department of Wildlife and wa Gov . BOOlh Gardner's natural resource spec ialist . said the Northwest has become the focus of protection efforts in recent years . The Department of the Interior is using the region as a "test case " to study whether human practices , like logging, can coexist with biological protec­ tions . Smitch said one problem confronting public agencies is that scientific studies on endan­ gered species are behind the times; although the ESA is in place , it is often difficult to species is threatened and how know when to prot ct it because there is little relevant research •

Shifting the focus to the species the ESA seeks to protect, PLU biology professor Den­ nis Martin focused on the gradual decline of the Pacific salmon. The species is close to being listed as endangered . Poipting out that 20 percent of the known 500 genetic stocks of salmon al ready have been lost, Martin said it is only a matter of time before the species is extinct. " It' s not a questio n of whether the dire predictions will come true - it has already happened, " Martin said . Attempts by hatcheries to replenish the stocks have not been success fu l , Martin said, because they create fish that are homoge­ neous and weak. As releases of hatchery fish have i ncreased over the years, numbers of both wild and hatchery fish that survive to spawn have decreased . Martin said that once the salmon is l isted as endangered , Washington industries causing their demise are going to be hit hard. Fish­ i ng , mining , agriculture and hydroelectric power interests will all have to cut back their use of the Northwest waters. "This whole thing with salmon is going to make the spotted owl look like a Disney film , " Martin said . "It will wreak absolute havoc on the Northwest economy . " Someone is going to have to bite the bul­ let for salmon in the Northwest. Nothing was written in the law that guaranteed everyone a • happy life , " he said .

'Endangere d Communities ' A Part Of The Endanger ed Species Issue By Gail G reenwood '84

he controv rsies about endangered spe­ cies have captu red our attention for years . After more than ni e years as a reporter at the Daily World in Aberdeen , where the spotted owl and salmon controver­ sies often have centered , I know how com­ plex the issues are. When covering these top­ ics , even the "facts" are often disputable, making it quite a headache to clearly and fairly present information to the reader. The tensions and stakes are always high . I have observed how the environmental concerns have changed the economic situa­ tion and thus the social climate of Grays Harbor County . I cover education and social and health issues and have seen those areas impacted by unemployment, frustration, anger and despair. Now, more and more , there are new programs , retraining and hope . I have watched the rise in unemployment; the alarming increase in domestic violence, crisis-line calls, and mental health services; and the increase in rates for deaths , low birth-weight babies and people on welfare . I have also seen the numbers of children receiving free-and reduced-rate lunches grow at many of the school districts, the percentage increase of the community hospital ' s patients on public assistance, and the explosion of the demand straining food banks. But an accurate portrait can ' t be drawn by numbers alone . Faces are needed too . I ' ve seen the faces. I 've seen the tears. I ' ve seen a strapping, unemployed logger hanging l imply from a tree in someone ' s back yard. He had been topping the tree when his chainsaw touched a power l i ne and kil led him . Just the day before, he had been going door to door, trying to sell his expertise "to make ends meet . " I've seen families bewildered and paralyzed when both parents lost their jobs at the mill that had always given their fathers a steady income. And then, there is the man who finally sold his log truck to buy a fishing boat. But this was the year there was no ocean salmon season and he never got to use it. I've seen the economy move from depending on fishing and logging industries to becoming

more and more dependent on government assistance . This shift has taken its emotional tol l . Sometimes peopl e in Grays Harbor appear to take a hypocritical stance - desper­ ately , howing their need for government · sis­ tance and new program and then bristl i ng the next moment when they 're labeled by outsid­ ers as an "economically depressed" logging town. In many ways , Grays Harbor has become an " indicator species" to the Pacific Northwest economic environment like the spotted owl is an " indicator species" to the ancient rain for­ est. That means it ' s the first one to show that the rest of the environment is threatened , that as salmon, lumber and other concerns contin­ ue to be dealt with, it will economically impact more and more of the Pacific Northwest . For instance, the low cost of power we have enjoyed for so long may be threatened by changes in our hydroelectric dams because of concerns for salmon runs. Lumber prices to build new homes will continue to rise , in turn affecting other industries and other areas . During the Depression, a WPA survey indi­ cated few places in America were hit harder than Grays Harbor County . Those are the years that Grays Harbor began to earn its reputation for resilience and self help. This attitude is surfacing again. In the last few years, "economic diversity" has become the watchword and is slowly coming to pas s . Aberdeen, Hoquiam and the rest o f the county will survive and even flourish in the years to come . But, in the meantime, that doesn't mean the day to day suffering , uncertainty and changes in individual ' s l ives should be dis­ counted. The same concern for the endangered species should also be expressed for the "endangered communities" so that a balance between the natural and human habitat can be established . •

The Will apa wate rsh d comprises 1 , 060 quare miles, inc luding the most pri . tine estuary in the Unit d States, hilly and for­ ested upland. and an 1 8-mlle long coastal spit with dW1es along the w stern sid .

Other resource-dependent industries are cranberries , salmon fishing and dairy. More important economical ly than any of those industries are the amenity-based eco­ nomic activities : recreation, tourism and retirement . The activities listed above all depend on the vitality and diversity of Wil lapa ' s natural resources , some of which are in danger of declining below viable population levels. A few examples will demonstrate that the threats are as diverse as the natural resources base. Rapid growth of a non- native Spartina grass (cordgrass) i ntroduced into the Bay many years ago threatens to choke off many of the native species in the biotic community, endangering the crab and oyster industries. The decl ine of the salmon runs through overharvesting, logging impacts and hydro­ power dams has resulted in severe losses to the commercial and sports fishing industries . The lost values in boats and equipment are keenly felt throughout the community . The timber industry harvested at a rate sig­ nificantly above the growth rate in timber through most of the ' 80s , l imiting future tim­ ber availability as well as harming other sec­ tors . These stories aren't unique to Willapa , and thanks to its diversity , Wil lapa' s abil ity to weather some of these problems i s greater than that of other Washington communities . Several actions are being taken to arrest the decline of species in the watershed before it becomes irreversible, weakening the ecosys­ tem and economy to the point where it cannot recover. The Willapa Alliance, a community group, is spearheading an effort to define and move toward a "sustainable" ecosystem, both eco­ nomically and ecolog icall y . This means defining the problem areas, developing a reli­ .

['s exciting to start new programs , " said mathematics professor Kenneth Batker. " Then after awhile, you can I ok back and see the re ults of your work . " Batker retired i n May after 2 8 years on the PLU faculty. H e h s had an opportunity to be inv olved In the in itial stages of many cam­ pus programs that have become an integral part of the PLU campus . Early in his PLU career he and history professor Philip Nordquist taught an Interim course on civili­ zation and the history of mathe­ matic s . The interdisciplinary , or " integrated " nature of the course was a harbinger of the now vener­ able campus Integrated Studies Program. Batker was a member of the first ISP committee, became " the science person" in ISP dur­ ing its first four years , and contin­ ued to be i nvolved for many years. He helped set up the National Science Foundation-sponsored programs that brought high school teachers to campus to update their skills. He was in the original group that prepared the proposal for a Murdock Foundation grant that led eventually to realization of the Rieke Science Center. And he initiated departmental history of math and history of science cours­ es that continue to be popular. Some 20 years ago Batker also started a math scholarship pro­ gram with $495 from gifts in memory of his father. Initially he and his wife held plant sales to build the fund. He and others in the department have continued their support, along with friends and alumni, and now the endowed math, computer science and Lie­ belt scholarship funds are in six figures.

A native of a small town near Madison, Wisc . , Batker attended Wartburg Col lege , where he switched majors from speech and Engl ish to. chemistry and mathe­ matics. "Math is something you have to do yoursel f. " he said . " The prob­ l ems are hard. When you succeed you have a sense of el ation you don 't get elsewhere. " I t gives you a tool to th ink with , " he added. "The basics haven't changed much over centu­ ries . We just have different tools and more data . Computers are basically just a different pencil . " He continued , "The systematic thinking used in mathematics can be applied to many problems . That is why it is so fascinating - and worthwhile. " Batker, who has watched the math (and computer science) departments grow from four to 1 8 faculty members during his ten­ ure, had words of high praise for his colleagues. "It's a wonderful department, the greatest bunch I can imagine , " he said . Students have been an equal joy . "I 've had years of renewal from them, " he added . A longtime member of the Audubon Society and other con­ servation groups , he hopes to be more active in the conservation movement in his retirement.

And certainly , h e and wife Mar­ lis, a retired PLU education pro­ fessor, were moved by their expe­ riences in N icaragua and and Mexico during the past decade . " It was the people there who impressed us tremendously . They changed my life and perspective on life , " he said. "Though they struggle against i ncredible poverty and oppression traced directly to exploitive, long-standing policies estab lished by our government, they maintain courage, unquench­ able hope , and tremendous love for one another and for people from the U . S . " Vern and Marlis first visited Central America in 1 986. In con­ junction with the Center for Glob­ al Education, headquartered at Augsburg College in M inneapolis, Minn. , they conducted an Interim class and were students in a sum­ mer language school in Mexico, and took another Interim class to a Nicaraguan coffee harvest. They had 17 students in a semes­ ter program in Mexico, to of whom were from PLU , in the fal l o f 1988 ; Vern' s last trip to Nicara­ gua was 1 992 with another Interim service-learning project. "We have continued to look for ways to encourage students to take advantage of Study Abroad oppor­ tunities , " he said . " It changes your perspective. " He is appreciative of the philo­ sophical climate at PLU that encouraged those study tours, as well as the Family and Childrens ' Center, the Second Wind program

" Following his Medford experi­ ence Hanson got a job at Western State Hospital i n Tacoma, where he was encouraged to pursue a social work career. He earned his master's degree in social work at the University of Chicago in time to apply for an open position in the sociology department at PLU , where he began his teaching career in 1 970. "I have felt comfortable in a social work role , " he said. In retirement he hopes to write, paint, carve and learn to enjoy garden work.

While just a tyke on her father's fishing b oat in Alaska, she screamed when she saw bloody salmon being hoisted aboard and pleaded with her father for ban­ dages.

But a dispute over one class prevented her from getting her nursing degree in 1 954 for the next two decades she was busy raising a family with .. �er former husband , Milt Hefty , a Marine Corps pilot and also a PLU alumnus. She received her PLU bachelor of science in nursing degree in 1 969 and joined the nursing facul­ ly in 1 973 after two years of hos­ pital nursing and earning her mas­ ter 's degree at the University of Washington. A tragic bicycle accident in 1 983 disrupted Luella 's career. "It hap­ pened the only time I didn't wear a helmet, " she said. She was in a coma for six days and in Madigan General Hospital for six weeks before beginning rehabilitation at Good Samaritan Hospital . She was on disability leave for seven years before returning to the PLU nurs­ ing faculty in 1 990 . During the interlude , however, she remained active in the Pierce County Nurses Association, which she served first as treasurer and for the past seven years as execu­ tive director. Luella completed her doctoral studies in higher education with a minor in business administration, but she discontinued her disserta­ tion when she opted phased retire­ ment from PLU. Her professional publications

Jo Ann Jensen

have covered aspects of communi­ ty health nursing, cultural diversi­ ty in the nursing curriculum and well ness clinic studies . Although her teaching career was abbreviated by the i njuries that still trouble her, she looks back with fondness on her career at PLU. "It has been enjoyable to be with students and parti ipate in their learning process , " she said. "I'm still in touch with many of my former students . " And she has been privileged to see all six of her children attend her alma mater.

Jo Ann Jensen , a lbat makes organisms work? .V As long as she can

remember, biology professor Jo Ann Jensen has been fascinated by life around her. One of her early recollections is that of her father, a registe red nurse , pointing out plants and animals and teaching his children about them. Jensen, who retired in May , has been sharing that fascination with students at PLU for the past 27 years. Physiology , the functioning of living organisms in their envi­ ronments , has been her specialty . The organism can be plant or ani­ mal , "but I am most interested in the functioning of the human ani­ mal , " she admitted . While her discipline is biology, her interests have been holistic , often crossing into other disci­ plines . She minored in psychology both as an u ndergraduate and when she studied for her master' s degree . She earned a second mas­ ter' s degree, in psychology , at PLU in 1 977 . She has been involved i n research with psychologists and chemists, focusing on psychophys­ iology - a study of the interplay of emotion and behavior on the physical body . " Mind and body are virtually inseparable , " she said.

Cynthia Mahoney

That interdisciplinary disposition has served her well in teaching general biology and physiology to non-majors and majors alike. She counsels them to look beyond the physical body - to the whole per­ son. Born on Long Island in New York, Jensen grew up in southern California. As an undergraduate, she fol l owed her brother, Jens Knudsen, to PLU . Knudsen, also a biology professor at PLU from 1 957-85 , was forced to retire pre­ maturely due to illness . Jensen graduated from PLU in 1 954, earned a masters degree at the University of Southern Cali­ fornia , and a doctorate at Iowa State University . She began her teaching career as a zoology instructor at Iowa State before becoming a member of the first faculty at fledgling California Lutheran College for two years . She then taught at California State Polytechnic University in Pomona for four years before coming to PLU in 1 967 . " California was too populated, " she said. During five years as department chair at PLU in the early '70s, she was instrumental in expanding both the faculty and equipment base . A $60 , 000 grant from Research Corporation (received jointly with chemistry professor Burton Nesset) helped elevate the physiology-biochemistry program . From 1 977-80 she was a faculty representative to the PLU Board of Regents . , In the early 80s particularly, she was active in efforts to improve the status of women on campu s . " The c l i mate has changed a good deal here the past several years , " she said . " PLU has improved greatly on those kinds of issues. " Moving to a new home on Key Peninsula west of Tacoma , she intends to indulge her artistic bent in retirement, working with metal sculpture, stained glass , and paint­ ing . She also wants to try her hand at fiction writing.

" But then she got stUbborn . " I think I went into nursing because they said I couldn 't do it , " she recalled. She earned a nursing diploma in 1 954 in her hometown and then a bachelor of science in nursing at Simmons College in Boston in 1 958, shortly before her marriage. But her hospital nursing career was short. By 1 959 she was get­ ting involved in the educational side of nursing . As her husband Leonard 's career with Weyer­ haeuser was moving thell} around the country , she first worked as a nursing instructor at a vocational­ technical school in M emphis . Tenn . , and then at S1. Joseph ' s School of Nursing i n Marshfield, Wis. In 1973 she earned her master 's degree at Seattle University (where she earned a doctorate in 1 985) and became a clinical instructor at Highline Community CoUege in Midway , Wash. She later served for four years there as coordinator of health occupations continuing education, which led to her selection for the PLU position in 1 98 1 . PLU ' s continuing nursing edu­ cation program is growing and soon will be self support i ng . Mahoney' s work has continued to be a challenge , as changes in the nursing profession dictate the kinds of continuing education that nurses need. For example, there are fewer jobs for nurses in acute care, but opportunities in home health care, long-term care, geriatric nursing, and for advanced registered nurse practi,tioners are growing .

unnUlf Myrbo was studying architecture, physics and then pre-med at the University of Brit­ ish Columbia in the early '60s . But his thoughts kept returning to the universal questions of life: Is there a god? How do we know? Can we give reasons for it? He found that those issues were discussed most profoundly in phi­ losophy . And it was in that disci­ pline that he built his career. Myrbo retired from full-time teaching in May after 24 years on the PLU faculty, but the universal questions still fasc inate him. " I will continue to be a philoso­ pher, " he says. In retirement Myrbo will work on a book , Ethics Within Reason, which explores how moral systems are rooted in rational choice .

At PLU , Norwegian-born Myrbo was an early mover in the develop­ ment of the Scandinavian Area Studies Program and the Scandina­ vian Cultural Counc i l . In retire­ ment he hopes to spend more time in Norway, where he still has fami­

where, either vocationally or avo­ cationally . "W have had very fine music students here , " Poulshock said . "PLU draws very fine students . " Poulshock's father was a studio musician in Los Angeles who played oboe for network television shows. 'Our home was absorbed with music, and I was privileged to have the fmest music teachers available, " she recalled. Originally she studied piano and did her first professional work as a pianist. She became a professional vocalist (soprano) shortly after World War II before she had any formal voice training. During an early engagement with the U . S . Navy band in Hawaii she met her husband, Nor­ mand, a pianist who now teaches

and in England, where he earned his P h . D . at Cambridge

ly ,

University in 1 970. For Myrbo, PLU has been a per­ fect fit. "It is a respected universi­ ty, with roots both in Norway and in the Lutheran church, " he said. And I have appreciated the colle­ giality and the cordiality of my col­ leagues, both on the faculty and in the administration. " Myrbo plans to teach a course during J-term next winter, and also hopes to continue to teach one course a year. • .

any young singers dream of performing at the Met (Metropolitan Opera - New York) , " said PLU music professor Barbara Poulshock. "By perform­ ing scenes from many operas, we're providing students with a solid repertoire and knowledge of different operatic styles . " For 2 1 years Poulshock, who retired from the PLU faculty in May, directed the PLU Opera Workshop he was describing . She also taught voice, vocal pedagogy and vocal literature, and staged several full-fledged operas . During those decades she enriched not only the musical lives of scores of her PLU students, but indirectly housands of young peo­ pie who have studied with Poulsh­ ock's former students in schools, literally around the world. An estimated three-fourths of her PLU proteges were music edu­ cation students who went on to teaching careers. But a significant number have sung professionally , in New York, Chicago and else-

phony in Edmonds. He went to hear her. and offered her a job. It wasn' t until 1977 that she conclud­ ed her eclectic academic musical career by earning a bachelor of music degree from PLU. Having given her last vocal recital seven years ago, Poulshock has taken up composing and will soon publish a book of original folk songs, Rich and Rare. lt is her second book ; the first included six folk songs she arranged. She is presently writing songs based on poetry by Emily Dickin­ son and William Blake. "I am grateful I can also make music with my hands, " she said of composing, "and it is so engross­ ing . It is like reading a good book; you can't put it down . " •.

Benkhalti Will Teach Math In Morocco On Fulbright Scholarship Rachid Benkhaiti, a PLU mathe­ matics professor, has been award­ ed a Fulbright Scholarship to teach in Morocco during the 1 994-95 academic · year. Benkhalti will teach graduate and undergraduate mathematics at both the University of Cadi Ayyad in Marrakech , his hometown, and the University of Mohamed V in Rabat , the capital of Morocco . , ' I am interested in using new collaborative teaching methods I have been using here , " he said . " Most teachers in Morocco are not familiar with these methods. " He will also be starting a new graduate program and will contin­ ue his research with a team that came together during a conference he attended in France. Benkhalti is hopeful that his con­ tacts in Morocco will lead to a PLU exchange program with uni­ versities there . "It would be a profitable program for our stu­ dents, " he said. He was always fascinated by mathematics. "When I was doing

Rachid Benkhalti chemi stry and physics as a stu­ dent, I discovered how good I was in math , " he said. Now he enjoys passing along that fascination to students. After earning his Ph .

Dyer Is Third Goldwater Scholar In Three Years

Fulbright Scholar Plans Year Of Study In India Jeanette Dorner of G raha m , Wash . , a PLU sp ri ng graduate, will study in India next year on a Fulbright Scholarship. Dorner, who earned a bachelor of science deg ree in earth sciences and a bachelor of arts in environ­ mental studies, is PLU 's 29th Ful­ bright Scholar in the past 19 years . A Fulbright Scholarship is one of the most prestig ious schol ar­ ships a col l ege student can receive. It covers all tuition, travel and expenses for a year of study in a fo reign country . Scholars are selected on the basis of academic and professional qualifications, as well as their ability and wBl ing­ ness to share ideas and experienc­ es with people of diverse cultures. During her Fulbright year, Dor­ ner will study the impact of devel­ opment on the environment. She has been invited to work at the Centre for Inter-Disciplinary Stud­ ies of Mountain and Hill Environ-

ment at the University of Delhi, which is conducting developmen­ tal planning studies in several regions of India. "One watershed under study by the Centre is a tributary of the Ganges River, " said Dorne r. " It is used for drinking water, irriga­ tion and organized outdoor bath­ ing. As it flows through Delhi it is also the recipient of untreated sew­ age and industrial eftluents . " Her PLU studies have acquaint­ ed Dorner with characteristics that make up a healthy watershed. "I am interested in comparing the watersheds I have studied in the Pacific Northwest with water qual­ ity and watershed management issues in India , " she said. Dorne r, who also minored in global studies, is the daughter of two PLU faculty members: com­ puter science professor Celine Dorner and mathematics professor Bryan Dorner.

Math Students Score Well In International Competition A team of PLU mathematics stu­ dents placed in the top 1 8 percent among participants in the interna­ tional M athematics Contest i n Modeling, sponsored by the Con­ sortium for Mathematics and its Applications. Team members were M ark Rockwell and Hans-Eric Schultz, both senior mathematics maj o rs from Tacoma, and Devin Terry of Vancou ver, Wash . , a senior majoring in electrical engineering. A second PLU team that placed in the top 44 percent included Mark Johnston and Peter Wiles of

Tacoma and Leopoldo Viray of Eatonville. More than 300 teams from 1 98 schools in nine countries took part in the competition. Teams were asked to find a solution for one of two open-ended modeling prob­ lems. Modeling problems offer no "correct" an swer; rather , an "optimal" solution is sought. Rockwell and Schultz have accepted graduate assistantships in mathematics for next year: Rock­ well at the University of Colorado, Schultz at the University of Cali­ fornia-Santa Barbara.

Jennifer Dyer of Pocatell , Id. , a junior at PLU , is a winner of the prestig ' ous Goldwater Scholar­ ship. The scholarsh ip is aw arded annual ly t utstanding sopho­ more and j uniors majoring in mathematic or the natural sci­ ences . ThiS year' s 250 sch larship win­ ners nationw ide were selected from among 1 ,400 nominations; this is the third straight year that a PLU studen has been selected for the honor. Dyer is a biology major with an interest in molecular medic ine . Following her PLU graduation and medical school she looks forward to involvement in gene therapy research as her way of contribut­ ing to the quality of health care. The Barry M . Goldwater Excel­ lence in Education program was created by Congress in 1 986 to honor the longtime A rizona sena­ tor and former Presidential candi­ date. Dyer is a graduate of Highland High School in Pocatello. " My parents instilled in me the desire to succeed, but not monetari ly , " she said. "Rather they taught me that the secret to success is to fulfill the realistic goals I set for myself. " She added, "PLU has continual­ ly challenged my abilities, and has provided an excellent foundation for my entry into the field of molecular medicine . "

Endowment Development Co neil 'Makes A Lasting Difference' The building of a great universi­ ty takes the commitment of many people will ing to share their time , talents and treasure, according to Donald Morken, a 1 960 alumnus from Woodinvil le, Wash. A member of the PLU Board of Rege nts , Morken has rece ntly chaired a group of such dedicated peopl e , the PLU E ndowment Development Counc i l . The 20member volunteer advisory group comprised of PLU friends and alumni has met regularly s ince February to help PLU shape its end ow m e n t development cam­ paign . Committed to enhancing the uni­ versity ' s future by s ignificantly increasing its endowment, Council members have been helping for­ mulate goals and strategies for the campaign . They reviewed cam­ paign plan s , suggested refi ne­ ments, recommended goal s, iden­ tified volu nteer leadership and

committed their own lead gifts, Morken explained . Together with the development committee of the Board of Regents , the Council recom­ mended that PLU set a $48 mil lion fund raising goal . The five-year campaign will raise $27 .7 million for endowment, $ 1 4 m i l l ion for the annual fund . and $6. 3 m i l l ion for special projects . According to Jan Brazzel l , PLU vice president for development and university relations, a signifi­ cantly i ncreased PLU endowment will "secure PLU 's ability to pro­ vide a high quality educational and personal growth expe rience for our students - tomorrow ' s lead­ ers , " she said. Endowment provides a stable fou ndation for an i nstitution ' s long-term well-being. I t functions l i ke a permanent trust fund ; the principal cannot be spent.

income stream that can be used to meet the u n iversity ' s priority goals. " Earnings from this permanent savings account provide a predict­ able source of funding for student scholarships that will help stabilize and sustain enrollment , " said J im Van Beek, director of capital cam­ paign and scholarship support . He is serving as staff campaign coor­ dinator. He pointed out that some donors designate earni ngs from their endowment gifts to support schol­ arships or specific university pro­ grams . Others prefer to leave their endowment earnings undesignated so the university will always have the flexibil ity to meet its most important goals. PLU ' s endowment has grown from $2 million to more than $ 1 4 million during the last nine years. But our endowment still falls sig­ nificantly below most comparable i nstitutio n s . President Loren Anderson observed that "our cam­ pus buildings are now abundant and beautiful , but we need to addre s this disparity in endow­ ment size if we wish 1 gua rantee PLU 's continued prominence . " BrazzeH added. "We are deeply indebted to member of the Endow­ ment Develop ment C uncil for their dil igent and enthusia tic lead­ ership a we prepare for this am­ paign .

They recently set up a six figure charitable remainder trust with PLU , and have willed a pension fund, currently valued at $4.5 mil­ l ion, to PLU .

Tilly, Smith Spark Women's Tennis Team Pacific Lutheran's women ' s ten­ nis team kept pace with the out­ standing performances of other PLU spring sports, wi nning 1 3 of 1 7 matches, placing second at the conference meet and fourth at the district tournament. Head Coach Rusty Carlson was voted by hi peers as the District I Coach of the Year, and senior Shannon Tilly p icked up the Sportsmanship A ward. Tilly was one of two PLU play­ ers who went through the regular season without a loss . She and junior Tabatha Smith were both undefeated entering the district tournament.

Sets Record For Victories

Brian Peterson

PLU Wrestler Wins NAIA Championship Brian Peterson, a senior from Auburn, is the first PLU wrestler ever to win an NAIA national championship . He is also the only Lute to have c mpeted in two different national championship meets, and holds the best ever winning percentage by a Lute wrestler ( . 896) . In addition, he was named an NAIA All-America Scholar-Ath­ lete fo r the second year with a 3 . 87 grade point average. Peterson was No. 2 seed this year after fin­ ishing second at 1 50 pounds in last year's national meet. In the 1 994 national wrestling tournament in Butte, Mont . , in March, Peterson won four straight matches and defeated Mike Seeger of the University of Mary (N . D . ) in the 1 5 8-pound final to win his title. Only one other PLU competitor, Adrian Rodriguez, had ever com­ peted in a national title match. He competed at 1 26 pounds in 1 987 . Current head wrestling coach Chris Wolfe finished third in 1 985 and fourth in 1 986 at 1 42 pounds, the next two best performances in PLU history. About Peterson, Wolfe said, " It's a pe rfect example of hard work, daily , paying off. He i s not naturally gifted in wrestl ing; everything he 's done, he worked extremely hard for. " Three other Lutes, all juniors, also placed at nationals . Nate But­ ton of Blaine earned Al l-America honors by placing fifth at 1 4 pounds. t 1 8-pounder Quae Nguy­ en of Tacoma and I SO-pounder C hris DiCugno f Aub rn both finished seventh . Button and Nguyen had finished seventh and eighth in 1 993 .

Perhaps the finest season in Pacific Lutheran baseball annals came to a close at the NAIA Dis­ trict 1 playoffs , but only after the 1 994 Lutes had placed a scare into the heav ily favored host , Lewis­ Clark State College. The Lutes won the opener of the best-of-three series , then dropped the next two games to the War­ riors , who had won eight of the previous 10 national champion­ ships. That brought to an end the Lutes ' record-setting season end with a 26- 1 6 record. Team records were set in 1 1 dif­ ferent single-season categories , including seven on offense (among them hits, runs an runs batted in) and four more by the pitdiing staff (including strikeouts) . The 26 wins is easily the most ever by a Pacific Lutheran base­ ball team, besting the old record of 20 set by the 1 992 team, which finished 20- 1 8 . The 42 games played is also a record, breaking the old mark of 38 set by the 1 986 team, which had a 1 9- 1 9 mark. Individually, senior centerfielder David Sandberg wrote his name in the PLU record books for stolen bases and runs scored in a season. The 5-7 Sandberg was a big man on the base paths with 29 steals (in 3 1 attempts) , breaking the former record of 27 set by Tony Whitley in 1 97 5 . His 38 runs tied Paul Montmeny' s record set in 1 990. Pacific Lutheran's appearance in the District 1 playoffs marked their first post-season trip since the 1 987 season . In add ition , PLU was in the hunt for the Northwest Conference championship until the final weekend of the season, even­ tually finishing in a second place tie . That finish was the best-ever performance by a PLU team coached by Larry Marshall . " It was an exciting year from the standpoint that a group of nine seniors set goals to raise the com­ petitive level of baseball at PLU , and they played a significant part in helping the team reach that goal, ,. said Coach Mar hall.

Men's Tennis Squad Earns 13th District C ampionshi It was an OK season for the 1 994 PLU men ' s tennis team OK as in Okl ahoma, w here the LU le competed in the 43 rd Annu­ al NAIA National Men ' s Tennis Championships at Shadow Moun­ tain Tennis Club in Tulsa. Pacific Lutheran finished the competition with eight points and placed among the top 1 5 teams in the country , an excellent reflection of their N o . 1 3 ranking in the NAIA regular season national ten­ nis pol l . M aking the high finish even more impressive was the absence of the team ' s regular-sea­ son No. 1 p ayer, Lars Vetterstad, who had returned to his native Norway just prior to the national tournament . H is replacement, · Bryant Green , had an outstanding tournament , winning one singles match and advancing with partner Andy Jansen to the third round of doubles, the best performance by PLU s three doubles teams. The Lutes earned their trip to nationals by winning the District I championship, the 1 3th such title in 25 years for Coach M ike Ben­ son . That happened in rather easy fashion as the Lutes put two play­ ers in the singles semifinals and two teams in the doubles semis. Vetterstad finished second in sin­ gles and , with Jansen, also placed second in doubles. Pacific Lutheran had last quali­ fied as a team for the national tournament i n 1 98 9 , coinciding with the last time they won the District 1 championship . There were other major accom­ plishments by the 1 994 PLU team: the Northwest Conference titl e , t h e 1 8th t ime t h a t a Benson­ coached PLU team has accom­ plished that fea t ; and a 1 9 - 1 record, the only loss coming to NCAA Division I opponent Ore­ gon .

Lute Rowers Compete In National Championshi Regatta Syracuse , New York, a nd a national championship regatta was the destination for one of Pacific Luthera n ' s crew boats in early June. By virtue of its championship performance at the Pacific Coast Rowing Championships , the PLU varsity lightweight eight men ' s boat qualified for the 92nd A nnual National Interco l legiate Rowing Championships, June 2-4 , on Lake Onondaga near Syracuse . Heats and finals wete held Saturday , June 4 .

The coach is Doug­ las Nelson.

Softball Team Makes Eighth National Tournament Appearance The 1 994 NAIA National Soft­ ball Tournament started well for PLU when it beat Dana College of Blair, Nebraska, 1 -0, in its open­ ing-round game. After that, how­ ever, the Lutes lost 3-2 in n ine i n n i ngs to eventual champion Oklahoma City , then were elimi­ nated for the second straight year by Kennesaw State of Georgia, 4- 1 . Pacific Lutheran was making its eighth national tournament appear­ ance in the past nine seasons. " Even though we didn't finish as high as we have in the past, we actua l l y p l ay ed better , " said Coach Ralph Weekly . "We 've got to remember where we came from at the start of the season . " The Lutes, who finished the sea­ son with a 39- 1 9 record, had qual­ ified for the national tournament by winning their third straight NAIA District I title and second consecutive Bi-Dist rict I c hampi­ o n sh i p .

At the Pac ific C ast Row ing C h ampionsh i ps , he ld at Lake Natoma near Sacramento , Cal if. , PLU came into the competitio n as the No. 5 seed but quickly estab­ l ished itself as one of the favorites by easily winning its early heat . Racing in Lane 2 and sand iched between Santa Clara and UC Santa Barbara , the Lutes pulled away over the second half of the 2 ,000meter course to win and end Santa Barbara's six-year PCRC title run in the lightweight eight category . The win ning time of 6 : 0 6 . 66 established a new course record by nearly six seconds . In addition, the Lutes earned a measure of revenge against Santa Clara , which had finished ahead of PLU at the San Diego (Calif. ) C rew Classic i n early April .

Sparks Stadiu m . Regular season home games on the docket are Southern Oregon on Oct. I , Wil­ lamette on Oct. 8, Whitworth on Oct. 29 and Western Washington on Nov . 5 . Road games fo r the Lutes include the following: at Linfield Sept. 1 7 ; at Eastern Oregon Sept. 24; at Central Washington Oct . 1 5 ; at Simo n Fraser on Oct. 22 and at Puget Sound on Nov. 12.

the national tourna ment , because after 27 games the Lutes were 1 4- 1 3 , and he was thinking that perhaps his young team was n ' t as good as it appeared to be prior to the season ' s start . The Lutes, however, finished with a tl urry , winning 25 of the i r last 3 1 games . PLU ' s fie sty sophomore second baseman , Jenny Swanson, earned NAIA fi rst team A l l - America honors . The sophomore leadoff hitter had previously been named the District I Player of the Year. Swanson has made a significant impact for the Lutes i n her two seasons on the Parkland campus . An honorable mention i n A l l­ American in 1 993 , she played well the " sparkplug" rol e , hitting . 378 (62-of- I 64) from the leadoff posi­ tion . W ith Swanson ' s first team award , Pacific Lutheran has had at least one player on the All-Ameri­ ca first team each year since the 1 9 8 8 sea o n . She j o i n s this impressive list: 1 988-Karen Stout, catcher; 1 989-Chrissy A lton , out­ fielder; 1 990-Brenda Dobbelaar, infielder, and Janine Gardner, des­ ignates player; 1 99 1 -Brenda Dob­ bclaar, infielder, and Leta Baysin­ player ; d e s i g n a ted ger, 1 993-Becky Hodde v i k , pitc he r, and Andrea Farquhar, infielde r. Weekly , who won his 300th career game on April 24, now has a 3 1 3 -92 ( . 773 winning percent­ age) career record in nine seasons at PLU . U nder Weekly ' s guid­ ance, PLU has won two national titles and finished as runner-up on one other occasion .

Five School Records Set At National Track Championships PLU athletes set five new school records as the women finished 1 0th and the men 1 8th at the recent 1 994 N AlA Track & Field cham­ pionships held at Azusa Pac ific University in Azusa, Cali f. Coach B rad Moore had hoped for top 1 0 fi nishes for both his teams, but that did n ' t happen . " There were 1 46 teams w i t h entries in the meet , " h e said . "To be in the men ' s top 20 and the women's top 1 0 , with that many schools, I ' m not disappointed . " Setting new school records were senior Tracy Fox in the triple jump (39-4, fifth place) , freshman Amy Cameron in the 1 00-meter hurdles ( 1 4 . 6 8 , sixth place) , junior A ngie Grimes in the long jump ( 1 8- 10 3/4, fifth place) , freshman Nolan Toso in the men ' s 1 1 O-me­ ter hurdles ( 1 4 . 1 9 , fourth place) and the women's 4x l OO relay team (4 1 . 76, sixth place) of Fox , Cam­ ero n , sophomore Sandy Metzger and junior Jennifer Lukenbil l . Junior Wendy Cordiero had the top individual finish of any PLU athlete, p l a c i ng second in the wome n ' s discus and winning All­ A merica honors for the t h i rd straight y e a r . A pair of PLU seniors also earned All-America honors with top six finishes: Trent Erickson, sixth In the 3000- meter steeplechase; and Dan Collera n , fifth in the long jump. " There were some disappoint­ ments , " but there were a lot more pleasant things , " said Moore. "We had 2 1 school top 10 perfor­ mances . "

Gary Cinotto never figured it would be this good. The first-year Pacific Lutheran golf coach led the Lutes to a Northwest Conference champion­ ship, earning Coach of the Year honors , and a strong second place showing at the NAIA District I tournament. With fou r players finishing i n the top six , Pacific Lutheran rolled to its second Northwest Confer­ ence of Independent Colleges golf championship in the past three years. The Lutes scored 9 1 2 in the 54-hole event, beating runner-up Pacific by 32 strokes. PLU 's Troy Helseth took medalist honors by four strokes. Lute players joining Helseth in the top six and earning all-conference honors were Eric Schultz, who tied for third , Mike Thorner, fifth, and Lane Meyer, tied for sixth . The District 1 meet had some drama for the Lutes . A fter 36 holes on Thursday , the Lutes were at 634 and in third place , 1 5 strokes back of second place West­ ern Washington. Their hope was to catch Western on the final 1 8 holes o n Friday and they did it, shooting 19 strokes better than the Vikings. Meyer fired a 23 1 to tie for fou rth place overa l l . He was joined in the top 10 by Thorner, who was ninth with a 237 .

Marc Weekly , Pacific Luther­ an's record-setting quarterback, proved his ability at the small col­ lege level during his four-year career with the Lutes . Now, he will get an opportunity to do the same as a profession. Weekly signed a multi-year con­ tract with the Canadian Football League's Edmonton Eskimos, and began training camp workouts with the Eskimos June 5 . He apparently will be one of five quarterbacks in camp, a number that includes returning sta rter Damon Allen. Weekly set 57 school, league and national records in leading the Lutes to the 1 993 NAIA Division II national football championship. He accounted for 143 touchdowns both rushing and passing in his four seasons, the most ever by a collegian.
