AGO-on October 12, 1894the first cl ass was he ld at Pac ific Lutheran Un iversity. There were 1 00 students. YEARS From this hu mble begi nn i n g, a great Christian Un iversity has grown, today numbering some 2500 students.

serving their fe l lowman. In short their dream was to "educate for Christ·like living. " I have been to ld that at one t i me the motto of P L U was "to bu i l d for character." I t has not been used for several years and I, for one, am glad. There is a vast difference between "ed u cating for l i fe" and " b u i l d i n g for cha racter" a n d we, o f a l l peo ple, t h e heirs o f the Re· formation, shou ld know and un derstand th is difference. It was Luther who stressed ti me and aga in that depend ence upon faith rather than se lf was that which above all else gave wings to his thesis of the freedom of man. "Faith " - noth ing less, nothing more - is the root of Christian educat ion. I may be accused of over-simplfying a compl icated concept of Ch ristian education but I don't think so.

One may ask what is so great about th is? After a l l , the Un iversity of Paris is at least 700 years old; Harvard over 300 years old; the Un iversity of Washin gton, about the same age as P L U, but ten ti mes larger; and Stanford University, fou nded also i n the 1 890's is 1 00 times weal th ier. What then is so noteworthy about the fact that P L U is comm emorating 75 years of instruction? I have searched for the answer to the question and, to my satisfaction, I have found it. This is the answer: The founding fathers created this un iversity with a drea m, and this dream has been ou r cornerstone ever since. Their dream has not died and through the decades th is dream has given to the students, facu l ty, board a n d its presidents cou rage, stead· fastness, and, above a l l , faith to en d u re what has often seemed certa in defeat, if not the demise, of P L U . Through financial crises, schi sms, disputes, poverty, un rest, and worl d confl ict, this u n iversity has preva i led·for it was tied to a drea m that was not a l l owed to perish .

I-IONES� YARDS�ICK

Luther's thesis of justification by faith and faith alone is possibly the most ho nest yardstick of measure a man can use. I t deceives no man for it is not affected by the val ues of this world or by self·conceit. It is not, nor can it be, re lated to the concept of "bu ilding for character," for faith shows a man how honestly to take a hard, rea listic l ook at h i mself, to size up h is shortco mings, to say, "God have rnercy on me," and then gather u p his strength and go forth bo ldly to meet his cho res and duties. He knows that he cannot in four years - in 40 or 400 years - ever come to the conclus ion that he has achieved any degree of "bu i l d ing for cha racter." He knows h i s needs and h i s complete dependence on H i s Father, in what House he m u st make his abode . It ca nn ot be

OUR FATI-IERS DREA

What is this dream? O u r fathers dreamed that a Christian university located in the Pac ific Northwest wou l d m a ke an i m pact on its students in such a manner that they wo u l d go from here showing in word and deed their com mitment to the Christian heritage of l oving God and 2

otherwise. One has but to study the history of man to know we are no closer to perfecti n g character building today than we were in 1 894, 1 5 1 7, 70 A. D., or in the days of our first parents. It seems to me our fathers, and those who have gone before us at P L U , knew this and were, out of conv iction, bel ievers of the princ i ple of seeking perfection through faith and faith al one.

diffi cult ti mes. They wi l l remember the scarcity of teach e rs, Iii brary, fac i l ities, food, heat, a scarcity of almost everything but love, cou rage and faith. ATURE OF

STUDENTS

B u t the difficu lties were considered chal lenges, for the dream was yet young and was not a l l owed to die. Time bu i l dings, grounds, has changed curri c u l u m , methods of teach ing, facu lty, presidents and sty le of admin istration, but one thing is for sure, the natu re of students hasn 't changed and th is gives me a profound sense of rei ief. Students of yesterday are no better and, for that matter, no worse th an students today. A qu ick read ing of P L U history shows that students had a few things to say about food service in the i r day also. I understand that boys and girls of yester路 day, without perm ission , sneaked off to lower campus along Cl over Creek to stro l l hand i n hand to do t h i s a n d that. Another interesting point, students of the 1 930's had no need to petition the President for coed dorms for they had them . The third floor of Harstad was on the north a gi rl's dorm and on the south a boys dorm, separated by a makeshift plywood partition.

I t was this faith that susta in ed us; when we rel ied so lely on our own deeds, we fel l down. It was faith that cau sed our fathers to ca rve out of the w i l derness a col lege, to bu i l d with their hands O l d Mai n, now called Harstad H a l l . I t was faith that held the fam i l y together through the lean , hard years and there are those here today who can te l l us about that. I t was faith that brought students to this campus and susta ined them through

UPS RIVALRY

The rivalry that went on between this col lege i n the 1 940's and 50's and the Uni versity of Puget So und was the nearest thing to undecl ared war known to man, and the theft of the old kick i ng post was a sure sign that the cold war with UPS was about to heat up once aga i n . Oh yes, lest I forget, the same excuses used by students 4


today haven't changed over 75 years, only the inci dentals, for in place of old Nellie getting ti red and the street car jumping the tracks, we now run out of gas. And faculty - oh yes, faculty things haven't changed - overworked, underpaid and misunderstood. Pr esidents haven't changed all that much either. We love, respect and proceed with dignity on all occasions, expected or not. We act tough but deep down most of us have a touch of cowardice. So you see, students, facuI ty, board an d, for that matter, Presidents have n ot chan ged over the years. We are in every respect t he same. No better, n o worse, and for t hi s I a m glad. The utopia has n ot arri ved at PLU, n or win it ever. RE DEDICATIO

Now as we go in t o t he last quarter of our first cent ury of in struction , let us re-dedicate ourselves to t he dream of our

father s: that this Uni versity will continue to show, by words and deeds, that its students, faculty, administration, board and alumni understand well the meaning of educating for Christian I iving. L et us be bound together in the historical role of faith i n a Christian uni versity, r ooted in the L utheran Reformation. L et this fait h shine through so strongly that we dare never to deceive ourselves in that we have achieved a degree of perfection and an answer to bui lding for character. For it is the faith-dream that we must never let die here, for it is our uniqueness and it is our promise. It is t hrough faith that we

Like a .> �i chboard, CH I C E e rves a� a cata yst betwe� rr gme me d pU bli ' seeking t co' m n i cate By James L. Peterson Three plaintive words, "bring us to­ gether," taken in the contex t of the rending social issues plaguing America, became a presidential campaign theme last year. The simple plea is universal, and it is applicable at local and regional levels as well. Realizing the need for catalytic agents to bring people into communication with one another , the American L utheran Chruch has funded CHOICE (Center for Human O rganization in Changing Envi­ ronments), based at Pacific L utheran Uni­ versity. CHOICE is basically a one-man agency, but its influence has been felt by hundreds during its first year. Its chief role, under the direction of Robert K. Menzel, has been to help arrange circumstances where divergent special interest groups can come together to seek solutions to common problems. Menzel has formerly served as a L uth­ eran parish mi nister, college professor and community action agency head.

"One of the reasons for the urban crisis has been the breakdown of single track institutions, in terms of their failur e to deal with new situations rapidly enough," Menzel asserts. He is referr ing to govern­ ment, business, labor uni ons, schools and churches. The CHOICE director pointed to the basic reason for the creation of the Cen­ ter , the need to str ucture frameworks for wider community dialogue, basically in the Tacoma area but influencing action at the regional and national levels as well. The Center role is repeatedly described by Menzel as a "plugging in" to situations and needs as the opportunities present themselves, much I ike a switchboard operator. Providing the connection be­ tween parties concerned is often all that is needed to initiate social action and involvement. I n turn, church, university, community and civic groups have been affected. An increasing number of faculty and 7


students have become involved, leading u l ti ma tely to greater relevance in the cl assroom.

As a resu lt of the conference, a central switchboard was provided to lin k consumers with providers of medical ser­ vices, and neigh borhood medical care centers, staffed by nurses or parapro­ fessionals, were provided. At present the Coa l i tion is attem pting to infl uence the local Un ited Good Neigh­ bors fund to re-exa mine its own priorities and to in sist th at establ ished com m u n i ty organizations re-eva l u ate themsel ves.

URE ' � i\' eOA ITlI)ilJ One of M e n zel's f i rst respon s i b i l ities as C H O I C E d i rector was to represent P L U o n t h e Tacoma Area U rban Coal ition, which P L U played a major role in or­ ganiz ing two years ago. Dr. Lowe l l Cu lver, urba n affairs representative, and Dr. Thomas Langevin, formerly ac adem i c vice­ president and now president of Capital University in Ohio, were among the leaders in the organizational effort. M e nzel became involved a s the Co­ alition was suffering through a change in leadership from busi ness and professional peo ple to a group more concerned with soci a l activism. A weekend workshop arranged through the C H O I CE center brought the individuals together and hel ped resolve some of the issues. The problem of effective medical care for the disadvantaged was recognized and de a l t with this year by the Coal itio n . Menzel explained, " W e worked to set u p a com m u n ication s workshop to a l low the 'poor and d isadvantaged' to c o m m u n icate th e i r needs to the local providers of medical servi ces." I nvolved were members of the Co­ al ition's health task force, physicians, A D C mothers, C H O I C E and others. P L U 's grou p process specia l i sts, D r.

C ooperation between the con sortium other Western Washin gton univer sities and the private sector will culminate in a massive onslaught into the pr oblems of the Puget Soun d region over the nex t two years_ The campaign was spawn ed in a conversation last sprin g between U_S. futurologist Robert Theobald; Roger Hagan , creative dir ector for KI NG Broad­ casting C ompany,Seattle; and Menzel. A Title I proposal was able to secure $87,250 for the organ ization of 300 to 400 listenin g·discussion·respon se groups throughout the area by P L U, Western Washington State C ollege and Seattle Un iversity to get the proj ect under way.

"Churches of the Tacoma Area Asso­ ciated Ministries helped provide repr esen ­ tatives from other races and en viron ments where they were n eeded. "

I n the mean time, r esources of the state libraries, 70 Un iversity of Washing­ ton professors an d 41 completed studies by the Puget Sound govern mental Con­ ference will provide the basis for a massive informational output: series of documen­ taries, spot announcements, panels an d inn ovative films to be broadcast by KING radio an d TV in the fall of 1970; magazine and n ewspaper articles, and additional church an d studen t-spon sored programs, broadcasts semin ars.

Movin g into vari ous kinds of action and in volvemen t, certain of the groups began visitin g city coun cil meetings, worked actively in political campaigns, began an emergency service program and arranged a confr ontation between the head of the local Urban L eague an d a sensation alism-oriented local radio station . "This experience served as a pilot for major community projects yet to come, " the C HOIC E director said. As local colleges, PLU, the Un iversity of Puget Sound an d Tacoma C ommunity Col lege have become in creasingly involved in community affairs, the pr oblem of duplication of effort has been a major one. Hence the recent stamp of approval by the three schools on the Tacoma Area College C onsortium, which pools the concern an d in fluence of the schools and establishes action prior ities.

Erlin g Mork, former assistan t to the Tacoma City Manager, willi direct the southern phase of the proj ect, which has been entitled, "Environmental Qual ity of Puget Sound." He has been hired by PLU with the aid of a Title I gran t and will spli t his time between the proj ect an d political science teaching. The student portion of the thrust is entitled "Project Survival," detai ls of which are still being worked out. 9

in divid u a l s and groups in o u r society, Menzel indicated_ "We're attem pting to deal with the man who doesn't begin with questions ab out God but the kind of world we l ive i n , " he contin u ed . "When h e asks these questions he finds that the local pa rish is not de­ signed to carry this heavy freight, though many a re moving i n that d i rection now, teaming up with other par ishes and com­ munity agencies . " O n beha l f o f the A L C Board o f Co l l ege Edu cation, which fu nded CH O I C E as we l l a s centers at Au gsbu rg a n d Augustana, Menzel added , "We're concerned with deve l oping new structures by which the people of God can more effectively carry out His m i ssion in the world . "We don't f a u l t the parish_ O u r thrust is to begin to b u i l d l i n kage structu res between the p u b l i c sector and people who get n u rtu red and sustai ned in parishes." M enzel himself personifies the "social partnership" model he is sti l l on the cl ergy roster of the L u theran C h u rch­ Missouri Synod, possesses a gradu ate de­ gree at an LCA sem in ary, and before coming to P LU, d i rected a community action agency for a "c l u ster" of 19 churches from 1 1 deno minations.

Out of the a n n u a l facu lty fa l l con­ ference this year, i n which Menzel pl ayed a major role, came the outline for one of the Center's broadest ou treach undertak­ ings to date: the devel opment of a series of i nterim cou rses fa l l i ng u n der the blan ket title of I nterim in Urban Poten­ tia l s. I nvolved are some 30 fa c u l ty mem bers, 750 students and 20 cou rses i n c l u d i n g studies of u r ban tran sit an d housing, u rban and regional p l an n i ng, com m u n i cations, the cu ltu re of poverty, blac k c u l t u re, the c h u rches' u rban poten­ tial, and others, offered d u r i n g the January 1 970 i n terim . Nine acade m i c de­ partments h ave developed the inter im studies. A proposa l for f u n d i n g of the program in the future has been sub m itted to the H il l F a mily F o u n d ation in M i n neapolis, but this year the u n iversity has hand led the program with its own resources. "The studies program h as involved disc ipl i n es you don't ordinarily relate to co l l ege u r ban affairs program s, " Menzel observed, "su ch as chem istry, d ra m a, com­ munications and religion. As Menzel points out, "Each of us m u st assu me a new kind of social partnership role. Particu larly for the chu rch, this is a new role. Traditio n a l l y it h as seen itsel f as a se l f-conta ined system interested pri­ marily in ind ividu a l salvation and private areas of a person's life . "

CLUSTE R M I N I STR I ES To fu rther develop the C H O I C E thrust aimed at the c h u rch com mun ity the Center has had, since the fa l l of 1 969, th e services of R ev .

L utheran F amily and Chil d Agency in Seattle and the L utheran Child Center in Everett . He is also working with regional and national bodies in continuing educa­ tion for clergy in developing structures for planning and coordinating of a new social ministry focus. The director, however, is keenly aware of the Center. "These problems have to be dealt with at a variety of levels, from the st reets to the halls of C ongress and the Presidency," he asserted. "I could hold the hand of a disadvan· taged person all day but he would be little better off. By the same token we can do little about massive changes in t he welfare system, for instance. We have constant l y t o check out the scale on which we choose to work, determining where we can 'plug in' to work with some expectation of effectiveness."

known in our society." Toward these ends C HOIC E is working at an ever increasing pace. Yet, only one year old, the end of its current mission is forseen by Menzel . Havi ng accom­ plished its purpose, it may eventually "spin off" to even more effective ways of involvement. You might say that the "switchboard" role will have been replaced by "direct dialing." Meanwhile, many are learning to com­ municate. . . and act.

COMMITMENT C HO IC E epitomizes t he efforts of the church and the University committed t o social action. At PLU, the commitment has previously been championed by former president, now President Emeritus Dr. Robert Mortvedt. It was amplified by Dr. Eugene Wiegman, current university president, in September as he set our on his new ad­ ministration.

O L D T I E S D I SCOVE R E D

As preparations were being made to honor a lu m n i from Spoka ne an d Co l u mbia Co lleges during Homeco m i ng '69, a l i nk wit h a t h ird, a l most forgotten, former sister institution was established this s u mmer by an al ert PlU sen ior. A yel lowed 1912 diploma from Pacific Seminary in Olympia was discovered by Nancy R u tledge, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert R utledge of Olympia i n a cru mb足 l i ng old apartment house in the Wa hi ngton capitol city. The d i ploma, awarded to C lara Mabel R aymon , a book eepi ng student was signed by Armin Pau l Meyer, presi dent, and Wil liam Hohlberger, secretary, only a year before the seminary was merged with Spokane Col l ege and six years after it had been fou nded. The name Meyers had been lost to h istory, but Rev. Hohl berger had a n indirect, b u t profo und, effect on Pacif ic Lutheran Co llege in the years to fol low. I t seems that he, as a representative of the Old Ohio Synod, had been on the origi nal c m m ittee that selected the seminary site in 1906. That same year the sem inary was ded ica ted with Dr. Carl Ackermann as its first president. A fter the seminary was merged with Spokane College in 1913, Rev. Hohlberger became one of two Ohio S ynod represen a足 tives on the Spokane fac u lty. The a rrangement proved so successf u l that the sy no , and l ater the ne Iy formed A merican Lutheran Churc h, continued to support facu lty on the West Coast. The first A LC representative on the P LC faculty after the merger with

Spokane in 1929 was R ev. J. P. Pflueger, professor of reli gion at P LC for 30 years u ntil his death in 1960. R ev. Pflueger may never have co me to the Parkland campus had it not been for Rev. Hoh Iberger. Na ncy, a political sci ence student, had no real interest - i n memora b i l i a u nt i l she discovered the d i ploma. "But I've beco me a n a nt i qu e buff since," she adm its. As for Miss Raymond, she rema i ned in Olympia throughout her l ife, eventu a l l y beco m i ng manager of t h e apa rtment where the document was found. She died i n August 1965.

The School of N u rsing w i l l occupy the area now used by the bookstore, the coffee shop, the student offi ces and lou nges. A l e ctu re·demonstration room wi l l be bu i lt at the former main entran ce. This classroom will be the prin cipal new constru ction and will provide a facil ity that can be u sed for cl asses by all depart· ments.

The Art Department w i l l occupy the former kitchen and d i n ing room areas. I n add ition to office-st u d ios, there wil l be teach i n g studios for graph i cs, painting an d drawing, scu l pt u re, design an d cerami cs. The C h ris Knutzen F e l l owsh ip H al l will be re lo cated in the U n iversity Center. I n the space thus vacated a new gallery ·theater wi l l be provi ded. T h i s is an interesting new concept of bri nging dr'ama into the art exh ibition hal l . It is also another example of U n iversity po l i cy to u til ize space in as many d ifferent ways as pos­ sible, thus ach ieving maximum return for every dollar invested. The art gal l ery will also be used for theater- in -the-round, poetry read i ngs, lectu res and other publ i c events. I t w i l l be possible t o combi ne both a stage produ ction and an exhibition at the same time. Estimated cost of remode ling of the CUB will be abou t $625,000. The U n i­ versity has appl ied for a P u b l i c Health Service match ing grant that co u l d provide up to $22 1 ,000 of the cost. An i nten­ sive sol i citation of facu lty, regents, firms and foundations is be i n g l au n ched to pro­ vide the rest of the funds requ i red to com plete the project.

P L U hoopsters moved i n to Northwest Conference play Jan. 9- 1 0 wi th road vic­ tories over Whitman and Col lege of I daho. With the season nearing the halfway poi nt, Gene Lun dgaard's ch arges boast a 7-4 record and are eyed as conference co­ favorites with Li nfiel d. Fou r year veterans AI Kol lar, Tacoma and Leroy Sinnes, Port Angeles, passed the 1 ,000 mark in career scoring during the first nine games of the season. They now stand ni nth and tenth respectively on the al l-time PLU scori ng l ists. Sophomore center Ake Pa l m Vasteras Sweden, and Sin nes are in a h � ated due i fo � individual scoring honors. Only one pOint separates the two who have score 367 points between them. The Lutes made a maiden voyage i n to Al aska and one to the mi dwest in Decem­ ber to pl ay Alaska, Wartbu rg, Va l paraiso and Carthage, the latter two in the Crusader C lassic at Val paraiso. The 8 000' mile journey resu lted in two wi ns and three losses, but back in more fa m i l iar territory the Lutes are 5- 1 . N ow in h is 1 2th year as head cage men­ tor at PL U , Lu ndgaard won his 200th game as Lute coach with an 86-74 vi ctory over St. Martin's Co l l ege Jan. 6. He needs 35 more victories to move past Marv Harshman to become the win n i ngest P L U coach in h istory

A shortage of manpower made the recent cross country season a l o ng one for coach John Thieman. Lute Ha rriers picked up victories in thei r first two meets aga i nst the University of Puget Sound and Pac ific U . , but fa i l ed to pick up another win in their remaining five meets. They fi nished second in two three-way contests and fourth in the Northwest Conference meet.
