A year after graduation from PLU, Davis enrolled at George Washington U n i versi t y S chool of M d i c i ne i n Washington, D.C., and he and Diane, who was from Issaquah, Wash., were married a few months later. They now have three children. In 1985, following his residency at the University of Iowa Ho pitals and C l i n i c s i n lo w a C i y, the Dav i ses arrived in S ho. hone.

Six years ago the Davises helped establish a "preaching point" ELCA Lutheran congregation i n S hoshone, which i s served by Rev. Dan Rieke, a nephew of PLU 's former president, William Rieke. The tiny congregation meets in the Episcopal church, and Diane plays the organ. PLU ties are also strengthened by their new next door neighbor, Eric Olsen '80 and his wife, Carol .

for the M ary B aker R u s s e l l M usic Center's

central window. Working from the idea of a ro e and from the heritage fo u n d i n the E as t v o l d r o s e w i ndow, C h i h u l y w i l l compose 20 to 30 individual free-blown elements for the w indow, which at one p o i nt r aches t h ree

tories i n

height. As tb

elements stray from the central configuration

and trail along the l e n g t h of the w i n dow, a lyrical pas age fr m Chihuly's Persian forms will allude to music's central position in the arts and our lives. "At Pacific Lu theran University, perhaps no other s y m b o l is m o re a p p ro pr i a te t h a n t h e r o s e . L o n g celebrated in the arts and religions o f the west for its purity, fragrance, and for being the epitome of beauty,

th r se is also the Virgin Mary's personal symbol.

" B u t for PLU it represents the c o m m itment and

stamina of an educational mission and the unique history

of an institution and its campus as well ," said Chihuly, a Tacoma native.

The Rev. Dan Erland er, c a m p u s pas tor, said the themes of the Luther Rose are very i mportant to PLU. "PLU is the university of the Lutheran Church and this window ties it to the roots of its tradition," he said. "It also says a lot about the joy of l ife. (The white rose represents joy.) Luther was always one to say the Chri tian life is not one of heavy rules and laws, nor simply the way of the cro s, but one of joy," he added.

At the same time that I commend to you tbis richness of your future work, I do not want to deny t.he danger i n our soc iety ' s emphasis on jobs a n d careers. O n e of the great risks o f o u r foc us on work is that we start to see the world as pri marily i nstrumental to our own ends, and therefore as something to manipulate.

Here I wou l d observe that PLU ' s c o m b i n ation of a strong reputation i n the natural sciences and a living heritage of taking spiritual values seriously has great power as an antidote: praise c reation, a n d study it for what it i s . The essential scientifi c attitude - studying the natural order t o try to understand what i t is - is profoundly more reverent of creation than rel igious views that see scie nce as out to d estroy spiritual v a l u e s . I t ' s good s c i e nc e , and i t ' s also good re l i g i o n , to take materi al n a t u re seriously.

But there's more to o u r relationship t o the material world : we should revel in it. Here a PLU education has hopefully suggested to you at least two things.

According to Olufs, attention to identities and diversity is i mportant because of the changes going on in the world right now. The nation is moving toward an ethic of greater access to emp loy ment and public places for groups that formcrly were not fully welcomed.

he highlight of the Andersons ' fall was a late September visit to Norway, We had a couple

(�l days

to explore our roots, and

we met with prospective PLU students, visited our g raduates, and studied the dramatic changes being made in higher education in Norwav "

The climax of our trip was all audience with the king and queen. Despite our nervousness, the v i s i t was nl O s t p le a s a n t , a n d t h e g ra c e a n d humility of King Harald and

apparent. We invited them to visit PLU on their next American trip.

SClipture ur brief brush with royalty flashed back as I began to prepare this homily. For today is the last S unday in Pentecost, the last Su nday of the church year - il is called "Christ the K ing Sunday."

And i n our gospel text for this day (John 1 8:3337) Jesus i s portrayed as [he K i ng of all Kings, the R u ler of all Rulers, the Power of all Powers. The text recounts Christ' s well -k nown exchanO'e with P� l' te regarding h i s kingship. Pilate repres nts the ptnnacle of eart h ly power, yet he does not even begin to Lmd rstalld the new kingdom.


S o the teachjng is left to Jesus as he explains to . Pilate th t "My ki ngdom is not from this world ." For you see, P i l ate, if my ki ngdom were o f this :vorld , "my fol lowers would be lighting to keep me being handed over to the Jews. B ut as it is, my k mgdom is n t from here."


Pi late fai l s to understand the new kingdom. It is a

com�non point in John's gospe l , the new kingdom c on fused the worl d , for the new ki ngdom makes sense only to those who believe. P i l ate's and the world ' s fai l u re to u nderstand i s , i n one way, not surpri sing, for lhis new k ingdom was so new, so radical the pri nciples so extreme. I ndeed, Christ defied nearly all of the preva i l i n g notions abou t kings and k ingdoms a n d royalty i n h i s day-and 1110 t of our contemporary ideas as well. Consider the contrasts, for Jesus came, first of all , as

The KiJlg of IOI'e

Fairy t a l e i m a ges o f w o r l d l y k i n O' d o m s a n d kingships are based o n power - the p ver o f rule, the weight of tradition, the power o f economic clout




and military might. Royalty traditionally connotes the abi l ity to have one's way, to dictate the answer, and to even force th solution when necessary.

Chr i s t , the n ew k i n g , c a m e as a h u m b l e a n d conv icting teacher w h o traveled the land; h e moved among the people, and he led this small and humble band of loyal followers called disciples. Who would recognize him as a king - surely not us?

For in a world where so very often "might makes right," here is one who came proc laiming that the "first shall be last, that the least of these among us shall be the greatest," and that the greatest virtue of all is love. He came proclaiming that love - love so strong that it would draw him to the cross - shall overpower all wickedness, all earthly ev i l , and even the power of death i t se l f ! The k i n g of love this shepherd i s ; no earthly k i ng i s he, for Jesus came also as

The King of hope

Earthly kjngdoms are troubled pl aces. For the world of Jesus' day, and the world of our day, are often evil and destructive. As we look around, hate o ften seems stronger t h a n l o ve ; c o n f l i c t more prevalent than peac e ; pain and loss overshadow happiness and gain.

But the faith assertion for this day is that this whole world - as mixed-up and messed-up as it ma� sometimes seem - is u nder the kingship of Chnst. Why God permits so much sin and pain is a . d i fficult question, a question that often lacks a c lear answer. But even so, we have the fai th assurance that Christ i s a good and benevolent king. He i s our king. H e i s our King o f Love and Grace, and when we suffer, God suffers with us.

of gJ"ace

The world in which Jeslls intruded was based on the law. It was a world that u nderstood a religion of ru les; that above all else valued obedience to the law. And because the law was central, j udgment was common.

But Jesus introduced a new form of j ustice, for he understood that "all have sinned and fallen short of God 's glory." And because fai l u re and sin are the com �non h u man denom i nators, only the gospel of for� l � eness, only the gospel of abundant grace is suffiCient to save us. So Jesus called the world to believe, for it is i n faith that the promis of salvation c ? m e s ; i t i s in s u rrender t h at t h e o n l y hope o f . victory lies. And, e mpowered by the knowledge that God' s forgiveness and grace are m i ne t o claim, I a m freed to join

The King that sees

Many earthly kings have caring servants and large personal staffs . We envision kings and queens who are p a m p e re d a n d pro t e c t e d , surrounded by all material things in plenry and abundance. Certainly we think of royalty a s the ones who are served.

B u t t h i s l o g i c , t o o , t he n e w kingdom would overturn. For this n e w k i n g J e s u s c a me n o t to b e served , but t o serve others; and to call all who proclaim him as Savior and Lord to join his erving team. And when w do, th k i ngdom of God reigns in the here and now.


S o in faith we can see beyond the hate and hurt, and we confess that God holds the future in h i s hands, a n d we know that he w i l l work things out. C hrist the K i ng i s our confidence; he i s our sure and certain hope ! And because that hope is always there, we can find j oy in the proclamation that

I started the story of our encounter with Norwegian royalty. The end of the story is a happy one because we asked the kjng and q ueen to visit us, and they have said "yes." They will come, perhaps fal l '95 . What great news i t was to bring home - "The Kjng i s Coming."

S o now the preparation begins. A committee has be� n formed. Programs must be shaped, speeches wntten and music prepared. Food - lots of food - must be planned. Rooms must be cleaned, the c a m p u s m u s t be d e c o r at e d , the guest list must be shaped and the med i a informed.

For in a world

where so very o ften "migh t m akes righ t, II here is one who came proclaim ing

Yes, the king is coming - and the preparation begins because the worse, the very worst, nightm are would fi nd us unprepared .

And the point i s this: today we c e le brate C hr i s t t h e K j no O' S u nday, w e drop the c urtai n on another l iturgical year, and we turn to Ad y e n t. Ad v e n t, t h e ti me o f preparati o n , prepara t i o n for the c o m i ng of the King, preparation fo r the a r r i v a l o f t h e B a b e o f Bethlehem.

caught in an argument: is its purpose to produce a l i berally (general ly) educated citizenry for l i fe in a democratic society, or to prepare individuals for a continually expanding list of professions? PLU is neither a small l iberal arts college nor a large research university. It l ies somewhere in between, w ithout a distinct label or del1nition, but with a cl ar sense of purpose and mission. The traditional tension between the two models has been minim ized at PLU by the acknowledgment that its students seek a useful education - one that combines seri ous study of ethics, l i terature, and the h u m a n i t ies a l o n g with vocational train i ng. From within the academic community, there i s a growing movement to define this type of col lege.

This means offering an enl arged role for students in the des ign, deli vel>Y and evaluation of their education . It als6 means blurring the l ines between teacher and student, between the lecturer and the lectured to. It means, where possible, putting them on the same level to re ason rhings our together.

S PECIAL S ECTION Study Ahroad And Gain A New Perspective On Life Back Home


LU offers one of the most c omprehensive and far-reac h i ng study abroad programs in t h e N o rth w e s t for a c o l l eg e o f i t s s i z e . Students and faculty return from their travels with a fresher understanding of other cul tures as well as their own . What follows is a roundtable d iscussion of those life-changing experiences by some of the PLU community. -

Junior Christie Falk is a journalism/global studies major who studied in Ecuador for three months last spring.

Peter Grosvenor i s a v i s i t i ng professor

from London, England.

Political science professor Ann Kelleher is currently d i rector of the Center for International Programs at PLU. Senior David Duncan spen t his j unior year studying at Lancaster University i n England. He is a biology major at PLU c urrently applying to medical school.

What initial experience do you remember? DAVID We clung to each other for the first couple of weeks. We grasped on to the people we knew and who sounded l ike each other. We had to cling to our roots. Gradually, after a week or two we started to realize there weren't enough of us to make an entire year's experience worthwhile if w just sluck t each other. -

CHRIS TI E - S o m e of t h e prog r am s . l i ke t h e Servic Learning Program I ent un, i nc l uded 20 hours a week volunteer work with Ii sodal ervice organ i z a t i o n . These progr<\ll1 ' a nd xperiences make you open your mind to the fael that there 's more than one answer - there arc so many possible answers. .

DA VID - I t o o k m a i n l y b i o logy, p h ys i c s and c h e m i st ry with B ritish students using the metrk system. At first, they 'd be talking i n Celsius and I d be trying to convert from Fahrenheit.

How did your American upbringing affect your experience? CHRISTIE - You need to behave in a ifrercnt manner in a d i fferen t environment: how we look at the clock and how it controls our behavior, how we look at technology, and how dependent we are on technology yet how much it serves us. When you go to a place l ike Ecuador, where you can ' t depend on the technology as much, you can't depend on things running by the clock. You can ' t depend on the bank being open on the hours i t says i t ' s going to be ope n , Here, I could re l y o n fam i l i ar supports of fa m i l i a r i ty. I n E c u ador, I was s o m u c h more challenged. You c an ' t read the soci a l clues; you h ave to rely on yourself. You tend to turn i nward and rely on those strengths that you have. PA C I ' I C



Would you say studying overseas can help develop self-reliance? CHRIS TIE C o m p l etely. I w e n t i n to a setting where I didn't have a lot of l i ttle gadgets to help me o u t . I e v e n h a d t o m ak e a l i t t l e r u b b e r b a n d contraption to keep the door shut. You tend to think i n a problem-solv i ng manner. -

PETER - The c u l ture i s actual l y i n the m i n ut i a, isn ' t it? What I ' m finding here is that, even though I ' ve come here to teach, t h i s is rea l l y my s tu dy a b r oa d e x p e r i e n c e . You learn abo u t A merican culture, not by readi ng grand books about American c u lture, but by doing thi ngs like working out how to travel , or driving here, or opening a bank account here, or shopping at a supermarket. That's actually how you learn about A merica.

ANN - What you learn abroad are good things about being A mericans, too. You don ' t feel more happy about being an American as when you 're overseas, but it's not for the same reasons. The students we u s e d to s e n d to B ri t a i n w o u l d t h i n k b e i n g a n A m eri c a n w a s arri v i n g o n t i m e , h a v i n g g d transportation and c lean toilets, being able to tal k on th phone a · long as you 'd like. and able (0 have long howel . But when th ey come I ack t hey know that be in g an American i · a OUt being open and a prob l em solver. So. ou learn the p o s i t iv e t h i ngs t h a t are rea l ly val u able abo u t y o u r own , oei ty when you experience n ew u l Lures. .

What would you say is tfie value of studying abroad ?

PETER When J was a student [ traveled , but I never actually g )1 the 0PP rtutliry to study abroau, I t h i n k the ad vantage of stu d y i n g rather lhun J u:t trave l i ng i s that, apart from a l l the c l i c hes about how travel broadens the m i n d , you a c t u a l l y get some kind of struc ture if you study a b roa d w i th so me bo dy who's going to try to introduce you LO the c u l t ure i n a fairly systematic way. -


I know I can teach a class on devel ping world issues and then have students go to Jam a i ca or Ecuador and then come back and teach m e . Re membe r I test these people, I know what they forget. C lassroom knowledge is academic, abstract; b u t s t u d e n t s go to J a m a i c a a n d E c u ador a n d i t becomes part o f them. It's real learning. It's part of their l i ves. It's part of their experience as human beings and their emotional responses. -


CHRISTIE I lived with a family in a little middle class community in Ecuador, and every other night my ' m o t h e r ' a n d I w o u l d w a l k a r o ll n d t h e neighborhood and talk t o people. I was part o f a p l ac e where what one neigh bor d i d affected the others, where they w ere i nterdependent o n each other, where there was a real neighborhood where you were responsible. When there was a rift, it had to be faced head o n a n d it had to be dealt w i t h . -

PLU offers students many ways to become involved. The u n i vers ity ' s Center for Publ i c Service, which incl udes the student-run Vo l unteer Center, c e lebrates and promotes a l l s erv i c e i n i ti atives o n c a m p u s s u c h as those sponsore d b y Residential Life, Campus Ministry, student activities groups, professional schools and academic departments. In support of t h e s e i n i t i a t i v e s , t h e c e n t e r c o n n ec t s s t u d e n t s w i t h opportunities to volunteer i n surrounding communities, and encourages critical reflection o n the experience as part of their education.

S tudents might spend a day with their residence hall wing c leaning up a park, or a weekend building house.' with Habitat for H umani ty. They may serve other as part of their practical p r o fe s s i o n a l t r a i n i n g t h ro u g h t h e S c h o o l of B u s i n e s s Partnership w i th U n ited Way, or t h e P h y s i c a l E d u c a t i o n D e p a r t m e n t ' s \.\I o r k w i t h e l e m e n tary s c h o o l c h i l d re n .

Why is this so important? Why are students (and faculty and s taff) w i l l i n g to sacrifice preci ou s t i me and energy to volu nteer service? There are as m any reasons a s there are volunteers.

A n na G utzler wants to "give back" some of the gift s she has been given. For Joel E i l er, it is an expression of fai th: "You are al ways e i t her walking toward God or away from Him. In the same w ay, you e i ther serve others or reject them. There is no middle ground."

M i ke Lee explai n s : "I wan ted to do something beyond myself. I wanted to give back i n some way. I wanted to use my talents for the benefit of others , Knowing how to work with people and for people are critical skills for any career. With the newspaper, I fi n d that commllnities are extremely important: You can see justice acted upon; charily has meaning at a local level . The government, the country, often seems too big, too impersonal ; but on a local level you can help things, you can give, you can be a part of something,"

curiosities l ie, join Associate Professor Kate Grieshaber and Lecturer Kathryn Wold as they prove that music and the visual arts go hand in hand and that y o u don' t have to be a Mozart or Monet to be inspired.

Whether you live a mile away or thousands of miles from Tacoma, take advantage of this oppor­ tunity to return to your alma mater and reunite with the campus, faculty and friends. Welcome home !

B ec o m i n g fu l l y i m m e r s e d in t h i s n e w i n formation age i s a goal t h e administration s upports and encol'lfages . A year ago, PLU launc hed campus-wide access to the I nternet. T h i s y ear, for the first time, the u n ivers i ty offered three $5 ,000 grants to add technology in the c lassroom. The university also created a n e w p o s i t i o n - e x e c u t i v e d i re c t o r o f i nformation reso urces - to oversee l i brary and computer center operations and to provide d i re c t i o n o n u n ivers i ty - w i d e technologi c a l advances. G a l l o p i n g o n to the i n fo r m a t i o n s u p e r­ h ighway is not the be- a l l , end-all of fu ture learning, however. While it will undoubtedly modify the way some classes are conducted, it won ' t eli minate professors, residence halls or campuses - nor should it.

D o u g O a k m a n , a s s o c i a t e p r o fe s s o r o f rel igion, has already embraced the Internet as a valuable supplement for class assignments, but cautions the technology should be used as just that, a supplement.

'T m not entirely gung-ho about computers i n the c l assroom ," h e a d m i tte d . "The y ' re a d i ffere n t ki n d of d i s tr a c t i o n a n d t h e y ' re expensive. I t coul d be a serious problem i f computers replace faculty. One thing PLU has to o ffe r is a p e r s o n a l r e l a t i o n s h i p w i t h students. If s tudents want a computer-based education, they can go to a state university or get it from a correspondence course." President Loren A nderson addressed this co ncern at a talk on campus in April titled "Re-inventi ng H igher Education."

" F a c u l t y t i m e a n d e n e rgy - e v e ry university's most preci ous resource - can be directed to focus less on information transfer and more on higher order learning outcomes: commu n ication skills, value formation, and dec i s ion-making capability," he said.

Computers should never replace lectures; t e c h n o l ogy a n d pro fessors should work i n tandem . For example, suggested Provost Paul Menzel , use the electronic foru m for what it is best sui ted - the conveyance of information. Then use the resulting increased class time to i ts best advantage - analysis and discussion.

"This applies to a class of 10 or a cl ass of 50. If there's a way to impart that information more efficiently by u sing electronic exercises, then do i t because it frees up time for things you can't do over a computer. "We h a v e to r e m e m b e r n o t to t e m p t o u rs e l v e s t o u s e t h i s w o n d e rfu l t o o l j u s t because it's there," he added. "We need to use it for what it's good for."

A nu mber of academic divisions have taken technology by the horns and already h av e programs up and running. Som e are earnestly preparing for next fal l . Here 's a samp l i ng of what's happening on campus.

It i s hard to imagine what his reaction will be when the modern Northern European-style oroan i� b fi nally moved - piece by piece - to t h e George Lagerq u i st Conceit Hall in l ate 1 996.

The freest a n d i n g s tructure i s different from the Eastvold oroan b where the pipes are in separa te chambers.

At 34-feet h igh and nearly 27feet wide, the organ w i l l be too m a s s i v e for Fr i t t s ' s m a l l workshop. He recently fi n i shed b u i l d i n g a n e w 40-foot h i g h w o rk s h o p n e x t t o h i s p re s e n t location on East 1 2 1 st S treet.

S he added she was startled to learn that despite differences of culture, language and economics, t h e prob l e m s w o m e n fac e are universal. S he cited concerns for wome n ' s i ssues i n c l u d i ng equal pay for eq u a l jobs, and ra i s i n g children.

Karpel ended up going back the next summer to do what she was trained to do - marriage and family therapy.

Then i n October, a group will come to the Puget Sound area to study. The Russ ians are very interested in Western psychiatric methods, she said. Their c urrent therapy revo l ve s mostly around medication. What will Karpel tackle on her next trip? "One t h i n g keeps leading t o another. I ' m not sure what's in the future, but 1 ' m sure it's something, though," she said .



e were o n our first visit t o Israel i n 1 987 when I received the call to serve as pastor of Trinity Lutheran C h u rc h i n Ly n n w o o d . I took the Letter of Cal l with me on the trip to reflect and pray about it. I wanted to discern God 's will in the matter. We were staying in Tiberius, which was the site of the calling of the disciples. There was even a little restaurant there cal led "Peter's Fish and Chips."


I remember getting up early one morning and going out on our balcony overlooking the Sea of Galilee . As I began to pray for God 's leading, I looked out and saw the little fishing boats along the s hore. I thought about Jesus a n d t h e c a l l i n g of t h e fi s h e r me n : P e t e r , A ndrew, James a n d John. O u r Lord issued them an invitation that would forever c hange t h e i r l i v e s . To accept m e a n t l e a v i n g some fa m i l i a r t h i n g s b e h i n d i n c l u d i n g j o b , a particu lar lifestyle, and even fami ly. They were asked to ri sk, to step out in faith, and follow.

These first disciples were invited by Jesus to "come and see." (John 1 : 39) This was an invitation to not only meet the Messiah but to e xperi ence h i s i mpact on their l i ve s . They followed in obedience and faith. They began a journey w ith Jesus that would take them places t h ey n e v e r d r e a me d . A n d as w i l l i n g i n stru ments, they would b e u sed b y God in ways they never would have imagined.

I wondered what God had i n store for me as I faced a m ajor deci sion . "Come and see . . ." were the words that echoed in my mind. I fel t t h e Lord l e a d i n g m e t o a new m i n i s try i n Lynnwood . Little did I know then what was in store for me there. It was to be an adventure in faith - the l i kes of which I could not have imagined. Now God has called me to venture on to a new m i ni s try i n a new p l a c e . This means l eaving t he famil iar behind and once again stepping o u t in fai t h , c o nfi d e n t t h a t t h e Lord will lead a n d b less.

J e s u s , how a re y o u c a l l i n g me t o d a y ? Where are you cal l i ng m e t o serve? What are those things that 1 may need to leave behind if I am to fol l ow in fai t h ? Help me to disc ern your lead i ng and accept your invitation to join w i t h you o n a n e x c i t i n g a n d s o m e t i m e s d i ffi c u l t , s o m e t i m e s j o y - fi l l e d j o u r n e y .

Kathleen A dams and her daughter Mollie Hanson.

A l t h o u g h Dr. S am u e l Gee described the condition in 1 8 82, there has been very l i ttle p u b l i s hed a b o u t i t s i n c e t h a t t i m e . The syndrome continues t o b e misunderstood and misdiagnosed, causing intense s uffering to the children involved and to their families.

What's In A Name? B y KA THLEEN A DAMS '65

n e d a y rec e nt l y , I was driv i n g t h e eternal c arpoo l t o ballet w i t h t hree teenagers in my back seat. All three girls have cognitive disabilities and have been in c l asses and c arpools together since they were three. They still enjoy adult interaction in spite of the fact that they are teens, but I take a stance of "benign neglect" while driv ing and have them all sit in the back seat and relate to each other. My ears perked up, however, when my daughter, Mollie, started talking about her syndrome. It came out of the blue.


"I have CVS (Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome)," she announced and gave a sentence or two of explanation to her friends. "What do you have, Katie?"

A fter a m o m e n t to t h i n k a n d a b i t of a prompt, Katie a n s wered , "I h a v e W i l l i am ' s syndrome." A few sentences of explanation followed with j ust a little assistance from me.

T h e n M o l l i e t u r n e d t o R o b i n , w ho h a s Down syndrome. "What d o you have, Robin?" R o b i n ' s rep l y w a s i m m e d i a t e despondent, " I have diarrhea ! "


Luckily 1 maintained control of the c a r as I squelc hed an e normo u s laugh. How l u c ky I was to be at the right place at the right time to hear this personal, matter-of-fact conversation. I again realized, in a vivid way, that much of the time my daug hter and her friends, Katie and Robin, don ' t need labels or definitions. W h a t they do need is o n - g o i n g c a re a n d concern i n learning t o deal with issues a s they a r i s e , the " i s s u e s of the moment." R o b i n ' s i s s u e s a s a p e r s o n l i v i n g d a y - to - d a y far outweigh her need to have a named syndrome.

This incident takes on a different tone today than it would have several years ago . Up u ntil the fal l of 1 99 1 , I l o nged to have a label, a definition, a d iagnosis for Mollie's disease. I t seemed that a l l h e r " i s s u e s of the moment" grew o u t of her battle with an u n d iagnosed disease that had wreaked havoc in our family for 1 1 years.



At the age of 1 8 months, she had begun having episodes of what i s n o w recognized as Cyclic Vom i ti ng S yndrome, sometimes known as "abdominal migraine." CVS i s a rare, u nexplained d isorder of chi ldren and some adults c haracterized by recurrent, pro longed attacks o f severe nausea, vomiting, and prostration. The episodes may last for as long as ten d a y s i n s o m e c h i l d re n and req u i re hospitalization to prevent dehydration. The c h i ldren are genera l l y healthy between epi sodes.

B e c a u s e of t h e u n c e a s i n g 2 0 - y e a r c o m m i t m e n t o f D r . D a v i d F l e i s h e r o f t he University of M issouri School of Medicine and the more recent work of Dr. B . U . K . Li of the O h i o S tate U n i vers i ty S c ho o l of M e d i c i n e (both ped i atric gastro-enterologists), CVS is now beginning to be more formally recognized as an e n t i t y i n i t s e l f . R e c e n t p u b l i c atio n s , funded research, and an international scientific symposium on CVS (held i n London in July 1 994) have all h elped to l i ft this disorder up out of the cracks in the floorboards of medicine into which it had fal len. A breeze of progress and relief is blowing through those cracks after all these years.

When faced with mysterious syndromes like C V S , fam i l ies de sperately need a n ongoing col laborative relationship with a physician . Our pediatrician, Thomas Dunigan, M . D . , EEA.P. , h a s been a n ever-present help i n o u r search for an s w ers w i t h M o l l i e . O fte n t i m e s h i s most valuable words have been, "I just don't know, but I will be with you on the journey." That kind of hum i lity and commitment can make the difference in a family's ability to cope with a rare, chronic i llness.

As a pare n t and the president of C V S A , I have a deep appreciation and respect for those in the medical profession who recognize the value of "naming the disease" and then getting on with the "issues of the moment."

The competition was close throughout, w ith the Lutes fi nally pull ing out a two-point victory over Linfield, 57-55. Pac i fic Lutheran conference s ingles fl ight wi nners were S arah Campbell at No. I , Molly Delk at NO. 5 and Joy Zumbrunnen at No. 6 . Campbell teamed with Dani Mu lder to win at No. I doubles, and Delk and Karen Schmidt won at No. 3 dou bles.

The v ictory qual ifies the Lutes for the national tournament, held May 23-26 i n Tu l sa, Okla.* S e c o n d - y e a r C o a c h G a ry C i n o t t o w a s named N C I C Coach of the Year for the second straight time. TRACK ft FIELD

I t's been a record-setting year for the Pacific Lutheran track and fi eld team, which has set school records and all-time Top 1 0 marks. The Lute women won their 1 5 th straight Northwest Conference title, matching the nu mber of years t h a t C o a c h B rad M oore h a s b e e n at P L U . S enior Karen Andrade set meet records i n the I OO-meter hurdles and 400-meter h u rd les to earn co-female Ath lete of the Meet honors.

Andrade is part of a sprint and hurd les unit that has been doing a great deal of damage to the school's Top 1 0 l i st.

There have only been three lO-win seasons in Pac i fic Lutheran baseba l l his tory, and all three have come in the past four seasons. The 1 995 Lutes are cou nted among that group with a 22- 1 1 record enteri ng the fi nal week of the reg u l a r s e a s o n . S h o u l d t h e L u t e s s w e e p Whitworth, they will advance to the NAtA Far We s t R e g i o n a l Tou rn a m e n t a t L e w i s t o n ; Idaho.* Pitcher Denell Grindley '98 P A C I F I C



Sooner or l ater i t was bound to happen and it o n ly makes sense that i t wou ld be Paci fic Lutheran that would do it.

S i n c e t h e N o rth w e s t C o n fe r e n c e of Independent Col l eges s w i tched from an open draw to a fl ight format for i ts men 's tenni s championship meet in 1 986, no team has swept i ts opposition as the host did this Apri l . Paci fic Lutheran won all of i ts 27 matches to garner all six singles and three doubles fl ights. The Lutes fi n i shed w i t h t h o s e 2 7 p o i n t s , the n e x t c l o s e s t competitor being Willamette with 1 7 . The conference title sent the Lutes to the NAIA M e n ' s Te n n i s N a t i o n a l C h a m p i o n s h i p s , May 22-27 in Tulsa, Okla.'" Last year, Pacific Lu theran finished 1 6th at the national tournament.

You had to figure that PLU would be the first to sweep the c onference tournament based on both the 1 99 5 season and past peri'ormances. First, in winning all seven of their conference m atches this season, the Lutes won every singles and doubles match with a si ngle exception. Combine their 27-0 tou rnament mark with the regular season, and the Lutes were 8 8 - 1 versus the con­ ference in 1 995. As to past perforrn-ances, this year's NCIC title is the fourth straight for the Lutes and the 20th in Mike Benson's 26 years as head coach. "They j u st d i d the same thing they ' v e b e e n doing a l l year. E very guy i n e ve ry m a t c h w e n t o u t a n d p l ay e d very g o o d t e n n i s ," s a i d B e n s o n i n d e s c ri b i n g t h e Lutes ' conference tournament p l ay. "They p l a y e d to a h i g h l e v e l p h y s i c a l l y a n d mental ly. The c l o se m a t c h e s that w e had, we hung i n wel l and got the j ob done."

T h e r e w e re n ' t m a n y c l os e m a t c h e s i nvol v ing PLU players. One came i n No. I singles, where S hane Vel ez battled from a 5-3 deficit in the third set to beat defending champion Erik Norland of Willamettc, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7-4).
