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.

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.
