G A FACULTY By Dr. Robert M01·tvedt, PTesident Loyalty and dedicati on cannot be bought; they have to be earn d or won. They are ob v iously related to institutional objectives, the qual ity of the student body, and the cl imate of integrity created by the entire academic community, inclusive of faculty, administration and staff. This is why we have attempted to define our objectives with clarity and precision. They are published in our c at alog The prospective teacher can know wha t we profess; the teacher who remains can assess our practice. I be­ lieve we have a set of objectives which can com­ mand both loyalty and ded i cati on on the part of men and women who are wil l ing to espouse both academic and spiritual goals With my colleagues I shall con tinue to try to create an environment in which integrity and th e search for truth can flourish. Fine teaching may be its own rewar d but we shall press down the measure if we can. Just as piety cannot be a substitute for teaching ability, so administrative intentions cannot be a sub­ stitute for practice. It may always be necessary for teachers and staff at an institution such as ours to be "below the top of the ma rket . " I am personally sure that a measure of sacrifice is desirabl e. But we are moving s teadily forward with our s alaries and benefits. We fail at times to be able to appoint some of the people we would like to have, but in many instanc es we are getting our "number one" choice In the same vein, we are selec tively reducing teaching loads so as to allow opportunity for our more creative faculty mem bers to engage in writing and research. Proof of intent, desire and ability must precede such adjustments. Reduction of teaching loads will not of itself produce creativity; i t might in fact do the exact opposite. Following the same logic we shall continue to give special l eaves not as a reward for a quota of years of teaching, but rather as an opportunity to bri ng to realization gestative projects which are demanding b irth Although travel has long been recognized as an enriching experience for teachers, we do not give i t priority for its own sake. We believe the benefits of travel can be acquired through the normal use of vacation time. As we seek ou r fac ulty membe rs, we encourage dep artme nt chairmen and deans to maintain work­ ing files of desirable prospects al ways trying to anticipate by a year or two additions or changes. We give assistance in get ting grants f l' graduate study, and we give such grants as we can afford ourselves. P rospective teachers are encouraged to meet numer­ ous members of our facul ty so as to permit a mutual ap praisal It may be a very ex pensive mistake to appoi nt the wrong man. Since we have adopted tenure rules which give a teacher permanence after six years of service fol­ lowed by an appointment for t he seventh, we strive for the sake of all parties to make our decisions about possible acqu is i ti on of tenw'e within the first three or four years of service. A person who is given tenure ought to be thoroughly committed to the purposes of the University; and all the appraisers ought to be optimisti c about his potentialities for .

During recent months you have heard or read about the ahnost startling program of constructi on on the campus of Pacific L utheran. Soon y o u will hear even more. Because it is ob v io u sly impossible to conduct classes and provide suitable living quar­ ters for an increasing st udent body and because buildings constitute the visible form of the institu­ tion, everyone is excited about the importance of these physical assets. We are deeply grateful for the wonderful progress being made. Despite these facts, and despite the ceaseless efforts which must be made to p rovide p hysical facil­ ities, I am quick to affirm that the beatiug heart of the Uni versity is its faculty. No educational institu­ tion is better than its Iaculty or its established program of getting one. In the final analysis, the excellence or mediocrity of a college or university is determined in its classrooms, laboratories, offices and libraries. This is why decisions affecting the appointment and retention of faculty members are of such stra­ tegic importance. The wealthy institutions readily solve a part of their problem by competitive bidding for teachers with established reputa tions in teach­ ing and research. This we can s eldom, if ever, do with our limited resources. A recognized expert today may receive a salary up to $35,000-$40,000. But even the wealthy i nsti t ut io n s do not meet all their faculty needs in this way. They face the chal­ lenge, as we do, of iden tifying potential talent as quickly as possible, giving such assis tance as can be offered to enco urage and cultivate this talent, and then trying to prov ide an en,vironment sufficiently stimulating and inviting to hold the prospective great teacher (or teacher-researcher) until he has devel­ oped a sense of loyalty and dedication. Within rea­ son, for many peoples the teaching environment is more important than a munificent salary. "We know that some of our faculty members have declined offers el ewhere at salaries considerably higher than they receive here; and we are grateful for their sacrifice. We are als o gratef ul that they could feel that prospects and circumstances h ere warranted their decisions."

growth, service, and happiness. In monetary tenns, a tenure decision today is probably a quarter-of-a­ mill ion-dollar decision. We are now in the process of developing appropri­ ate methods for determining and rewarding uncom­ mon teaching success. Admittedly a difficult task, our evaluation of an appointee is poth continuous and periodic, casual and special Believing that stu­ dents have something important to contribute to the evaluation, we are try ing to develop a system which will permit a judicious use of their judg­ ments, even while it fulfills the primary purpose of stimulating better teaching. Through the President's Advisory Council, we allow for the expression of colleague judgment. Whenever occasion w arrants, departmental chainnen and deans are urged to coun­ sel with faculty members apout ways and means of improving their effectiveness. We want every teacher to attain his full stature both for his own satisfaction and for ours. This year, for the first time, we shall participate in the Washington State Auto Dealers' Distinguished Teacher Award program, an excellent project inaug­ urated by a thoughtful group of businessmen to reward achievement in the art of teaching.

For all teachers, even the great, the day of retire­ ment eventually comes; and it is best when it comes before decline in effectiveness is clearly noticeable. This is why we have set the normal ages of retire­ ment at 68, although by special decision of the Board of Regents, it may be extended until age 70. Tenure ends at age 65; hence for valid reasons appointments may be terminated at this age. Most teachers are ready to retire in accordance with these provisions. For many reasons, however, they are not the best j udges of themselves; nor are their closest friends. If, perchance, some are still able to teach effectively, it is best that they find congenial short-term appoint­ ments elsewhere, allowing our system to operate without the danger of having to answer the ques­ tion, Who shall be the exception to a rule universally accepted as sound? Outsiders can do it best. That is why we also at times appoint for short terms fine teachers who have been retired in systems they may have served ror half a lifetime. The quality of our discernment and judgment in selecting, assisting, and keeping teachers, more than almost anything else, will ultimately determine the quality of Pacific Lutheran University as a dis­ tinguished center of learning.

WHY I TEACH AT P U Professors give their thoughts on what teaching at the university means to them.

Dr. Robert C. Olsen Professor of Che'mistry It was in the spring of 1946 that Dr. J. C. K. Preus wrote in the Lutheran Herald, "In a day when there is a general shortage of college teachers, how is a college president going to be able to find Christian teachers for every vacancy on his depleted or re­ duced staff? The teachers he is looking for must first of all be Christian personalities, whose instruction as well as general influence will be in harmony with the Word of God. It is an almost impossiple task for the presidents of our colleges to go into the 'teacher market' and persuade men and WOmen to leave posi­ tions paying salaries two and three times what our colleges can offer and accept positions which offer practically no opportunity for financial advance­ ment. But, strange as it may seem, our colleges are largely being staffed by just that kind of people­ the best possible guarantee that they are men and women of unselfish character, deeply devoted to their Lord and to the mission of His Church. But what a task for the president to find them." His article helped me to realize that preparation of people for life and a profession appealed more strongly to me than the production of automobiles. I had been with the Ternstedt Division of General Motors for eleven years and had the title of Super­ vising Engineer in Plating, r owned my home and had a family of four sons, I was 40 years old; should I make a change? I discussed it with my pastor, Walter Scarvie, and told him to mention to the col­ lege presidents he met at the church convention that if my qualifications and training were of value, I would listen.

When the requests for my service reached us, my wife and I decided not whether to make the change, but which school should we choose. We heard not only from all the schools of our synod, but others as well. Pacific Lutheran College had one teacher of Chemistry and needed to expand in the fields of my interest, so we left family, home and friends in 1947 even though we knew supporting our family would be difficult on 507,-: of the salary I received in industry and even though friends and family advised against the move. We have been wonderfully content in our wprk at PLC and PLU and have never regretted the choice we made. Too, we have been repaid in our children's wanting to and being able to have their college education at a Christian College, something neither my wife nor I had. We feel that PLU has done for us a superb job of educating our children; three have finished their undergraduate work, one of t.hem has a Ph. D. in Chemical Engineering, one is studying for the ministry and the other is prepar­ ing himself to teach in the area of the deaf. The fourth on is a senior this fall and the other two children look forward to the time they will enter PLU. To know the students who come to PLU, to know that I have played a part in their formative years, to have students return and express appreciation for my efforts, to enjoy the friendships and fellow­ ship of Christian teachers - these are things which have been mine, the happiness that can be bought only with time and the love of one's calling. These are the things one can look forward to in continuing years of service to man, to youth and the church in a teaching position such as the one I now hold and enjoy. _.

scholar can "move up" the status and salary ladders without too much difficulty. Money and light teach­ ing loads do not keep faculty members at PLU. The question still remains and should be made more explicit. Why did I return to teach atter con­ cluding my undergraduate work at PLU and why do I remain? I experienced something moving and profound as an undergraduate that shaped and continues to shape my life. I suspect most of us did. I know per­ fectly well, as do those of you who read this, that life was not always perfect in the good old days. It certainly is not today. But I still feel more often than not the end result of a stay here was (and still is) the shaping of a life that could be lived in more meaningful categories. There wa produced a height­ ened awareness of the multi-dimensional nature of life as well as the necessity of participation in the drama of life and not just idle observation in some disinterested fashion from the sidelines. What caused the coming together of the ingredi­ ents? I am not sure, but I think more than anything else it was the example of individual lives; lives lived richly, fully, meaningfully. Fellow students were involved here, of course, but most especially the faculty. When after some hard searching I was finally able to decide what I wanted to do in life, I decided that perhaps I could help and maybe even on occasion inspire undergraduates in the way I had been helped and certainly inspired. In this I could pursue the study of history, which I am convinced is vital to liberal education and a consequential life. The choice of discipline was a happy one and while it's prob­ lematic whether I have been a successful and inspir­ ing teacher I h ave enjoyed my years of teaching at PLU just as I enjoyed my student years. All this is fine and maybe even significant but the problem needs to be dealt with on still another and I think the most important level, if only briefly. (Briefly because I have discussed some of these last issues at greater length in an article called "Athens and Jerusalem" in the October, 1965 issue of REFLECTIONS) . The Christian Church. the Christian University, and the life of the mind are not antithetical to each other as critics would sometimes have it. Rather

The task assignd by the editors is a difficult one, not Jeast of all because serious analysis is a painful piece of business. It is, however, of fundamental importance to assess reasons for being from time to time to determine whether or not they can carry the weight. It may be that what one does and the vineyard one labors in ctre irrelevant and inconse­ quential. If life is to be meaningful and productive of some good that would certainly be tragic. In the face of this, why teach in a University that claims to pay serious allegiance to both the liberal arts and the unequivocal demands of the Chris­ tian faith? At one level the response could be that PLU is a pleasant place and the sometimes salubrious climate of the Northwest and the relative absence of people in this area are primary facfors in the retention of faculty. Such reasons are hardly adequate. Salaries for faculty members at PLU are increas­ ingly competitive with other private schools across the country and that fact is pleasant. Although it should be added that more remunerative appoint­ ments elsewhere, with considerably reduced teach­ ing loads and more time for scholarly activity are not remote possibilities for the productive scholar­ teacher. A "seller's market" by and large exists in the field of college teaching and an industrious

teaching courses other than those I had special inter­ ests in before I began my teaching career. I have come to the realization that the spirit of FLU is more important than any selfish preferences that r may have had. As faculty members we must adapt our abilities to ser e our students at their level and when the challenge is great, we must accept it. I believe our faculty has sincerel y attempted to meet this challenge and this attitude helps create the spirit I admire at PLU.

they must be brought together and they must exist together regardless of the tension and friction that results. Only when this union takes place can the University create the poems, pictures, and music, the philosophies, the theologies, but most especially the leaders that a sorely confused world needs. The acids of modern life carr sive1y scar away larger and larger chunks of that which we have known and hold dear. The Church and Univer ity in uneasy equilibri m must address themselves to this scar­ ring and they must say something that makes sense. It is on this level that the existence of FLU can best be justified. And it is on this level that the scholar-teacher at PLU must justify his existence.

Dt. Jell W. Knu(/.<;en P1'o/eS!wr of Blolonl! ..

I am satisfied with my pay at PLU, seldom ques­ tion if I earn it bowever, but working conditions in terms of enough laboratories and storage space for teaching, adequate offices, time to counsel students and time for research (now at the expense of fam­ ily time) are enough to cause the long hard look at " good job" offers which provide for 6-10 contact hours (vs. 18) and research space and time. Yet, I feel I have a few small things to offer my students, to give to PLU. Things which are not cov­ ered by my contract, things too often reduced by committee meetings and so on, things hard to sort out or identify. Yet things which lend depth to my teaching and I hope to PLU. Schools such as ours no longer build strong moral spiritual or intellectual foundations for their stu­ dents -rather they attempt to perfect a superstruc­ ture upon the foundations which their students bring. We combat the monolithic lethargy of our times, hopefully avoid being hotbeds of inertia; rather we stand up as Christian men with the guts t say so and teach about life hoping that a few will see and know. It is this hope - that some of our Christian young people will see and meet life's challenges - that positions PLU as vital to the total of future history (not our histo ry all history). Unless I should become so hopelessly bogged down in trivia that prevent effective teaching, I will always fee l that the mission to teach life, to shock, to open eyes, to show the wonders of our Creator, to live and suffer and someti es win with these young Chris­ tians - that this mission is the reward of being at PLU.

D,. RuymO'rul A. KZopsch Associate P1"·o!es.<w1 of English I feel very strongly that my work at Pacific Luth­ eran is an acknowledgem nt of my commitment to Christ's kingdom on earth. The cause of Christian educaHon, particularly on the college level, is a sig nificant one. Society must realize that all knowledge can be studied under the aegis of the church and that the " knowledge explosion" in no way antiquate the Christian Church. As long as the Christian uni­ versity remains a steadfast witness of the relevance of the Christian faith to every area of man's intel­ lectual endeavors Or interests, scoffers or antagon­ ists of the Church will remain less secure in their negation.. In Pacific Lutheran University we have a.n insti­ tution which boldly champions the cause of Christ and I, as a member of its tea hing staff, hope that I can serve in a small way for that cause. Certainly an that we are or have been blessed to receive, we have through His gift. It is a special privilege also to serve with such friendly and earnest colleagues as we have at Pacific Lutheran. Because the concern for the individual student is greater here than I believe it is on secular campuses, esp ecially since we are concerned for the welfare of the soul, I believe my work is extended to studen s whose whole personality is considered. These teaching con­ ditions help me enjoy my teaching duties more, even though I may be serving more students or ­

What better life can one desir e than to contribute to the development of �oung men and women who will in turn be the worker and leaders of tomor­ row's world? To teach, to direct, to inspire them who, standing on our shoulders, will se e farther and understand more clearl y ; may this be our goal.

D1', Stewart D, Govig

Associate P1'ofessor of ReUgion In e xam inin g the reasons 1 h ave chosen to te a ch at PLU, I find that there are a host of personal cir­ cumstances, coincidences, and experiences which might constitute a list of "reasons." But such reasons sound trivial, and 1 cho ose rather to describe my atti tude toward teaching at PLU. In a sense , the Church has ca ll ed me her e to become a member of an acade mic community which reflects objective and open inquiry into truth. I find a tension between this at titude of the academic community, and the comm itt ed faith of the Chris­ tian Ch urch . This tension, however, is one which 1 ac ce pt as a joy as well as a challenge because both a re essential concerns at PLU. This makes the teach­ ing of religion both difficult a nd e xcitin g. I am en­ thused about the study of the Bible and the oppor­ tunity to study it together with stude nts. Through Biblical insights students may be introduced to the freedom given by Christ, and to th e life and mission of the community of faith. Having been offered that introduction, they may then decide whether they

will adopt that l ife and mission. In the final analysis, my c ommitment to teach at PLU is echoed in w o r ds the late Dag Hammarskjold wrote in h is famous diary on a Pentecost Sunday in Manhattan several years ago: "I know not who nor what called me, but 1 heard and answered by saying 'yes' t o Someone. And ever since I said 'yes' to Someone, I have felt the mean­ ingful sense of my existence that through surrender , my life can count."

D1', Lyn:n S. Stein AssoC'iate P'rofessor of Education Pacific Lutheran University is the most ideal situ­ ation for our family, insofar as it is wonderful to have our dau ght er home for a couple of mo re years and still know that she is getting a superior academic preparation within the confines of a Christian en­ vironment. At the same time it is a privilege for me to work in a dep art me nt that permits academic freedom to its staff and is also far fr om being educa­ tionally stagnant. The quote that follows is reflective of the healthy a tt itude that prevails on camp us. "The happiest and most productive employees have the most in telligent bosses working for them." For these reasons we chose 0 stay at Pacific Luth­ ern for the past five years in spite o£ other very attractive offers.

Campus life at Pacific Lutheran University is an enchanting affair wh ich draws a person into its cen­ ter. During my three decades at PLU most rema rk ­ able c hange s and advances have occurred from a small high school and junior college to our present university. But basic, intangible things which have not changed are the fundamental Christian spirit, the mutual concern for one another, the e ager stu­ dent demands for knowled ge, and a dedicated and energetic faculty, 6

OUTSTANDING YOUNG MEN OF AMERICA

ALUMNI MADE THE DIFFERENCE One of the private colleges in the Pacific N orth­ west uses the phrase "Alumni Make the Difference" to describe the feeling of that institution toward its former students. I think that phrase sums up the feeling that most schools have toward their alumni. When the Alumni Association undertook to pledge

$250,000 toward the construction of the new library on the campus, it was with the knowledge that it would have to be a united effort, with each inter­ ested memb�r taking part. And, while the quarter of a million dollars being raised by the alumni repre­ sents only one-eighth of the total cost of the library, it, more significantly, represents the concern of the alumni for the program and facilities of their alma mater. In a very real sense, "alumni made the differ­ ence" between a good and an excellent library facility. As .we approach the culmination of the active solicitation for gifts and pledges on October 22, over $207,000 has already been counted. If you have not made your pledge yet, won't you do so today? Send it to the Alumni Office and count yourself in. Larry Hauge Director of Alumni Relations

Two Pacific Lutheran University alumni have been selected as "Outstanding Young Men of America" by the Junior Chamber of Commerce. They are among a group of men between the ages of 21 and 36 who "have distinguished themselves in one or more fields of endeavor to the point of being outstanding." The selections are listed in the 1966 edition. of "Outstanding Young Men of America", an annual biographical compilation sponsored by the Junior Chamber. Nominations come from many sources, however, the majority of the nominations are made by local Jaycee chapters and college alumni associa­ tions. PLU alumni selected include:

Dr. (Major) Gale E. Thompson. Dr. Thompson re­ ceived his B.A. degree from Pacific Lutheran in 1957, and his M.D. degre from Washington in 1960. He is a member of the U. S. Army Medical Corps, and has served principally in Washington, D. C., Fort Benning, Georgia and overseas. He was a mem­ ber of the Gemini resusitation team, beginning with the first shot in the series. Dr. Thompson recently returned from duty in Viet Nam to become assist­ ant to the chief of the anesthesiology department at Brooke General Hospital, Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas. He is married to the former Cather­ ine Johansen, also a member of the class of 1957. Dr. David B. Wake. Dr. Wake graduated from PLU with a B.A. degree in 1958. He received his Ph.D. in biology from Southern California in 1964. He received a joint appointment to teach in the biology section and in the graduate department of anatomy at the University of Chicago following his gradu­ ation from USC. Dr. Wake's time at Chicago is divided between teaching and biological research, where he has already made a significant contribu­ tion to the knowledge of the field. Alumni recognized in the 1965 edition of "Out­ standing Young Men of America" were Dr. Jon M. Ericson, Rev. John V. Rydgren, Robert L. Curtis, Dr. William L. Rieke, Luther G. Jerstad and Dr. William H. Foege.

PLU is c ommitted, in obedience to its faith, to the pursuit of truth and to the development of free and responsi bl e persons. I chose to jo in it in the task and travail of achi eving these p urposes because I share them and the faith in which t hey are conc eived.

Further, there is no greater sense of intimacy or unity than that produ ced by a profoundly shared and arduously pursued purpose. One of the com­ plete satisfactions of my labor here has been the enjoyment of this sense of intimacy and unity with my collea gues and st uden ts alike. The value of this spirit is so great , in my opinion, that I take it to be not merely the product of a dedicated faculty and a remarkably principled adminis tration, but nothing less than the visible ben edic tion of God upon the labor of those who serve Him in love.

The UXli er sity -owned residence a t S. 121st S t . and P ark was extensively remodeled and added to over the summer and is now the Student Health Center. A one -story brick rambler, it served as the President's residence for many years and for the past six years had been occupied by Clayton B. Peterson , vice-president for development, and his family. The former health center was moved to make way for Ordal Hall, now wlder construction . The new center has the very latest in facilities and equipment for doctors, nurses and treatment of patients, and also has beds for short-time patients. The Center is manned 24 hours per day with a Registered Nurse on duty at all times and doctors on call.

The face of the campus has undergone many changes in recent months. Stuen Hall, residence unit for 11 women, was completed in time for the opening of the fall term. The Library is nearing completion and will be ready for use Dec. 5. Carrying out landscaping changes outlined in a master plan drawn up by Richard Haag and Asso­ ciates in Seattle, contractors and the m intenance staff have installed new walkways, roadways, park­ ing lo ts , plazas and planting areas. A new entrance to the campus has been constructed between the art building and Harstad Hall.

BANNER ENROLLMENT EXPECTED

P U B LICATIONS WIN AWAR DS

Near1y 2,000 st u dent s , the l a rg est number in the university's 75-year h is to ry , were expected on cam­ pus Sept . 15 as fall semester began. About 650 of th e number were to be freshmen, with another 130 expected to trans fer in from other four-year inst ittlti ons and junior colleges. The full-house p r edi ct i on brought smiles to ad­ ministrators. A number o f other Northwest schools were expecting e nrol lm e nt decreases this year. The students were to come from 30 state and several f reign countries. 'A ca d emic quality of the freshman class was ex­ pected to be up a n o tc h . The class was exp ecte d to a v era ge above a 3.0 or B. Stuen Hall opened t o 110 women as wo rkme n hustled through last minute fini shing touches. All wom en ' s housing on ca m pu s was filled and all the men's ho using was filled. Some men will be living off campus.

PLU's publications program has been designated best in t he nation by the American College Public Rel a t i ons A sso c i a t i on . Announcement of th e award was made July 6 in B ston at the ACPRA annual convention. PLU received a Certificate of Ex ceptiona l Achievement bas ed on th impact of its tot al publications program. Highest award giv�u by the association, the "ex­ ce pt ion al " certificate was the only one given for 1966 in the pu blic at io n division. More than 1,200 U.S. co l leges and universities were eli gible for the award. The Rev. Milton N esv i g , PLU vice president ­ universit relations , received the citation from John Mattill, director o f pub l i ca tio ns at M as sach us etts Institute of Tec hno logy . With it went a $250 incen­ tive award presented by Willian1 Whitsitt, director of education programs for the Sears Roebuck Foundation. PLU also won a Certificate of Spec i al Merit for the arulUal report of President Robert Mor tvedt. For PLU it was the second year in a row for win­ ning an " e x cep ti o n a l " certificate. The 1965 award was for improvement of publications. The school also captured eight publications awards at the ACPRA re gi onal conference last year at San Fran­ cisco. Two publi ca tions (t he president's report and a viewbook) c ap tu red two of seven gold medals awarded at the Seattle Art D irect ors ' Show in June. PLU won three " honorable me nti on " awards in J ul y in th e American Alumni Council's national c ntest for direct mail publications. Awards wer e earn ed for a brochure conc erni u g the dedication of Foss Hall, a men's dorm itory; a viewbook of the campus; and a broc hure describing capi t al need for the new PLU library bu il di ng . A total of 38 U.S. institutions of higher educa­ tion were cited by the Council, which has its n a­ tional office in Washin gt on, D. C .

C OMPUTER TO BE LEASED PL U will in sta ll a complete electronic data pro­ cessing system as soon as equipment is available, President Robert Mortvedt has announced. The Bo ar d of Regents has authorized the leasing of an mM 1401 co mputer, he srud. This will make possible the de v elop ment of an in formation service designed to help administrators meet growth prob­ lems more effiCi ently . "It will make data more accessible for use in de­ cision making," h e added. To be super vis e d by A . Dean Buchanan , vice president-bu<;iness and finance, the machine opera­ tion will as sum e record keeping chores for academic, business, admissions, alumni and student affairs office s and the registrar. For the faculty the machine will be used to assist in ins truc ti onal and research functions. 'As research is becoming more and more a fact of the life of the uni ersity, there has been a growi ng need for com­ puter service," Dr. Mortvedt said. Present data processing a t PLU is restricted to work with mechanical punch card equipment.

PLU TO GO ON TH E A I R A 50-foot tall FM radio tower was installed atop Eastvold Chapel in early August. The tower is to transmit signals over a lO-mile area for the school's new lO-watt non-commercial educational radio sta­ tion, to go on the air sometime this fall . Call letters have not yet been assigned to the station. which will be heard at 88.5 mg. Paul Steen, assistant professor of speech, said initial programming is expected to run about four hours daily, probably from 4 :30 to 8:30 p.m. Programming will include classical music, news, and informational and education productions. People from all disciplines at the university will be en­ couraged to participate in programming, Steen said. "We will attempt to be just as professional in our approach as we possibly can, II he said. "We hope to achieve professional broadcast quality." The station will provide a service not now being offered in the area, Steen said. For students it will become " another aspect of what we think is a rather thorough preparation in broadcasting," he said. PLU already has a non-commercial closed circuit television station, KPLU-TV, Channel 2.

S PO RTS FOOTBALL Coach Roy Carlson was working hard at initiating rookies in the fine points ot college football, as REFLECTIONS went to press in mid-September. Carlson had his largest squad ever, 47 candidates, as the K;nights began practice Sept. 5. But 23 of the total were freshmen and only 13 of the others were lettermen. Jack Sareault of the Tacoma News Tribune said of this season's team: "Everything is coming up green." He was referring to the coaches' problems in getting inexperienced men ready to fill gaping holes at center and in the backfield. Elsewhere, the Knights were expected to have comparatively experienced personnel. But what sea­ soning they had was expected to be neutralized by lack o[ depth. The brightest spot probably was at quart erback, where senior Tony Lister was displaying his old mastery at long and short passes and roU outs. His finding receivers was expected to bear heavily on Knight fortunes. Here's how the Knights lined up in early Sep­ tember: Offense Ends - Jeff Car.ey and Dennis Buchholz, Mark Yokers and Vic Eaton. Tackles -- Bob Krieger (captain) , Bill Krieger Ben Erickson, Mike McMullen. Guards Alan Fruetel, Bill Tye, Chuck Lingelbach, Randy Jorgenson . Centers -- Mike ArkeU, Duane Oyler, Hal Anderson.

She grew up with two brothers who were baseball fans "and married a man as interested in baseball as I,"� she says. "When our two boys were born, we decided they'd be assigned to the then New York Giants," she re­ calls with a smile. The two have since chosen careers in math and engineering.

PLU will play a home-and home football series with California Lutheran College in 1967 and 1968 . H. Mark Salzman, PLU athletic director, said the teams will play at Tacoma on Sept. 16, 1967, and at Thousand Oaks, Calif., on Sept. 21, 1968. The games will be the frrst athletic encounters be­ tween the teams. California Lutheran opened in 1960.

SWI M M I N G P O O L B U S Y Swimmers using the PLU pool last summer totaled as many as 900 a day, according to swim coach Rich­ ard A. Alseth. In one six week stretch there were about 43,000 swimmers, he said . The volume could swell the year's total past the 1965 record of 96,000 swimmers. About 475 people took advantage of five public swim hours each day, Alseth said. There were public swims seven days a week. Organized swim sessions also were popular. Swim lessons attracted 1,145 youngsters. In addition the pool had a swim team of youngsters 7-14 who par­ ticipated in weekly meets. And a housewives swim group attracted 35 women.
