Changes" long lines greet students by Kristl Thorndike Mast Projects Editor Electric saws o':ued and hammers pounded as students rushed to make their dorm rooms homey before settling into studies. The bunks went up, the carpets went down. and posters brought the bare • waUs to life. BO.l85, beds, and lumber for bunks lin­ ed the resid\\,nts' hallways .8 they fran· r belongings in place. tically put tfiei Stereos were hooked up and clothes shoved in closets and drawers. The Kent of fresh paint fUtered through the dorms. Students will experience some chonges in their sleeping and eating habits because policies concerning bunks and food service have been changed. This year rooms will look much dif­ ferent. All bunk beds must be free standin8. "The reasoning behind it," said Hous­ ing Coordinator Jan Maul·Smith, "is safety." According to Maul·Smith, no bunks will be allowed that incorporate clo9Cts or bookshelves.

"They could give way lit any time -' ' she said. Bunks cannot be bolted into walls this year and bunks from last. year that arc not free standing need to be rebuilt. to fit. new Sl.nndards. St.udents also have different food ser­ vice options. Three options for meals on campus are now available. Students . may choose option one'full meals seven days pet" week; option two'lunch and dinner seven days pet" week; or option three'breakfast. lunch. and dinner Mon­ thru day Friday. Traffic into the UC Commons has been rerouted also. Now students enLer and exit through what used to be the exit. All students must show 10 cards to TCC1!ive meals. Due to these variations in food ser­ vice, 10 cards need special validatton. This sent lines t.ralling hom the U.C. Commons to the Information Desk earlier t. h is week. Many studenta found them9Clves wait.4tg in other lines too. The Bookstore was swamped with studenta eagerly purcl1asing books and the Administration Building was crowd­ ed due to last minute i08tiiml of class

schedules. Some students experienced othcr com­ plications when moving in this year. Beth Bevan, junior from Pflueger said when she moved into her room there were no beds. "We had to sleep on the floor. We're looking for our bunks," she said. Living in a different hall from last year, Alpine resident. Terry Kyllo said he's excited about his new dorm. He had Lrouble rmding his roommate and had to hunt. around for over two hours to find hin•. I'm going through stress," said Scott Campbell, sophomore from Ivy. "I hate not being unpacked," he said. Moving to school "was so different from last year," said sophomore Jim Bekemeier. "I knew what to expect. It's exciting in a different way-a confident excite­ ment,"hosaid. Though students expressed mixed feelings sbout being back, everyone will soon be settled the excitement will fade. Think of it UJs way. We only have 98 days until Christmas break and 262 day.s until summer.


PLU . has enrolled more full- tUne students, raised more money, and com­ mitted itself to moNI capital construc­ tion projects in the past. few years t q an st any otber period in the university's 94-year history_ With the theme of 'It's our University-Lets Nourish It' President William Rieke reported on the growth of PLU's facilities and financial and academic PfQgtaVlS over the past decade in his State of' tbe University addrCS!! to the Faculty Conference last week. In the past. decade, the Office of Development has increased its total funds raised a year by 445 pet"cent, from 5680,ISO in 1975-76 to 13,760,001 in the 1984-85 school year, Rieke stated. "The Office of Development has become very competitive, and presently has surpassed Lotal funds raised a \ear by many similar universities. It has rais­ ed more money than St. Olaf, Seattle University, Gonzaga, or the University of Puget Sound." said Rieke. He stated that the Q Club, a universi· ty fund raising organiz.ation in tbe development office, surpassed its 116.5 million dollar goal last year by raising 117.4 million. "No one knows how grateful I am to report that our external auditol"S found us in positive fund balances," said ( Rieke. Along with the successes in fund rais­ ing, Rieke reported that full·time student.s have increased 10.2 pet"cent over the past decade, from 2,853 in 1975-76 to the greatest ever number of 3,144 fc.f the present school year. "This student increase in overall stu­ dent enrollment has allowed us to say that we are the largest. privsta institu· tion, not only in WashingtOn state, but in the entire Northwest," Rieke exclaimed. "This growth would not. have occurred if the university program were being perceived by all those involved in the growth as being valued," he said. Rieke stated two trends that are predicted for PLU's future student body. l) There will be an increasing number of internationsl students on campus. which is now 5.5 percent of the student body. 2) There will be an in­ creasing amount of older and part-time students. Presently, 30 percent of the Undergraduates enrolled st PLU are 25 years or older.

Campus Beggs resigns ASPLU e�ecutive position by David Steves Mast News Editor ASPLU is without II program direc· tor. following Kevin Beggs' Sept. 10 resignation. Beggs said he could no longer justify remaining II Pllrt of ASPLU. pointing to constant opposi· tion by PLU's Student Life office lind ASPLU's inllbility to affect university policies. "I felt my involvement with ASPLU should have been an opportunity to deal with some of the policies and issues at PLU:' said the former ASPLU ex· ecutive in a recent interview. "Instead, rnost of my time and effort was directed budgetary at administrative and matters. " After taking office, Beggs said, he began to realize that students have little influence on university policies. "With the rules and regulations at PLU it's very hard to express an opinion or strive fOT change." said Beggs.

"And that's very hard and frustrating for students, when you feel like you real· ly can't make a difference." In his letter of resignation Beggs said ASPLU's goal of "significant change that will enhance the learning environ· ment at not shared by the Stu· dent Life administration. I sought to work around this obstacle but found it virtually impossible." Beggs was elected to a one-year term as program director last February. "When I wok the oath of office, I felt I could effectively take that position and achieve some positive things for PLU and ASPLU:' he said. "Tlllngs went well at f1l"st, but it became more and more apparent that there was a lot of op­ position among the staff of Student Life to what we wanted to do in ASPLU. I felt I couldn't effectively do my job any longer ...! didn't want to compromise and do a halfway job." Poor communication between ASPLU and �ary Lou Fenili, vice-president of

KCC R airs on FM dial, offers students 'new music' by Susan Eury

PI-U students will be running their own FM rlldio station when KCCR begins transrnitting on the FM blind over PLU's campus cable system. The student-operated station should begin transmitting Oct.. 1, said Scott Williams. faculty advisor. KCCR is ....aiting for broadcasting equipment to be installed. All FM receivers hooked up to PLU's cable system will be able to receive KCCR's signal on 94.5 FM said Williams. KCCR began a year ago as an audio production clIlSS' experimental project. The student,operated station transmit. ted along the campus television cable system last year. airing on chanel 8 on .... eeknights. The format included rock lind radio dramll.

Despite the cost of new construction, university administrators expect PLU's income to increase by 82.5 million over last year's budgeted revenue. The increase is due in part to higher tuition revenues which should LOtal over S21 million, SI.4 million more than last year. This year's total budgeted income is expected to be S36.4 million, a 9 percent increase over last year. Building expenses were not included in this year's budget, approved by the Board of Regents on April 29, bec.�use capital outlay is not considered as in· come or expense. Vice-president for Finllnce and Opera· tions Perry Hendricks Jr. said construc· tion costs are not a specific part of the budget. A bond issue was floated to provide funds for summer building renovations. Hendricks said a bank loan was aT­ .ranged to pay for immediate construc· ·tion costs but bonds to pay for the im· provements will not be sold until later this year. The sale of tax-exempt bonds, totaling SII.5 million. was approved last winter by the WashingtOn State Supreme Court. The 20'year bonds will be avpilable to the general pUblic. The largest expense included in this year's budget is salary cost for faculty, staff and students. This expenditure equals 54 percent of total expenses. For the past two years equipment costs have been a major expense, due mostly to new computet aquisitions. This year's budget. though. places a freeze on t.'quipment purchases. said Hendricks.

"There's been too much animosity built up between her and a lot of reo­ ple. She should be relieved of her posi· " tion. That would be wise decision on the part of Dr. Rieke. t think a lot of students would agree with me," he said. "We're very sorry to see Kevin go,"said Fenili. "I knew he wanted to be near his fami· Iy in California. We'll miss his en· thusiasm and new ideas. "she said. Fenili said Beggs had never made any of his grievances known to her or the Student Life Office while he was a stu· dentat PLU.

Beggs said he believes resigning from office and transferring to a different school (he is cUIl't'ntly enrolled at the University of California at Santa Cruz) was the most effective way to protest ASPLU's ineffectiveness, "It's kind of like, I could stay and pro­ test, but they're still getting your tui· tion money. They won't care. Another way to protest is to stop financially sup­ porting the school and if a few students protest policies in such a fashion. maybe administrators will take notice,"said Beggs. "I regret that I'm leaving ASPLU in a bind,"said Beggs, "but I wouldn't feel right going through my term without being able to do the job as well as I'd like." Beggs doesn't blame any of the other ASPLU e:z.:ecutives or senators for his decision to leave. "They were an ex' cellent bunch. I couldn't ask for a better group," he said.

KCCR received PLU media board recognition and eligibility for school fun· ding in April. This also allows students participating at KCCR to be eligibile for a pracitum credit. The format at KCCR will be "college radio-·new music," said KCCR Program Director Dan Merchant. "We'll play groups that are not traditionally commercially-orient.ed." he said, listing R.E.M" The Talking Heads and The groups that would get airplay on


In addition to music. KCCR will a, carry campus news. comedy sketches, contests and prizes. said Merchant.

Student Life. was a major roadblock in the plans of PLU's student government. said Beggs. "She's a nice person, but from myex· periences with ASPLU. the way she handles her job is more counterproduc· tive than productive for students' lives," said Beggs.

Although enrollment has not increas· ed since last year Hendricks believes the increase in tuition rates will make up for the lack of growth. Although enrollment increased by over 4 percent from 1983·84 to 1984·85 that trend has stablized. The total enrollment figure forecast for this year is 8,695 . virtually the same number as last year. When asked about the general decline in enrollment at universities due to a decrease in the college-age population, Hendricks said PLU does not seem to be affected by that condition. "It doesn't necessarily hold for in· dividual institutions." he said. Hendricks said the stable enrollment at PLU indicates that the school is offer· ing students something other institu· tions may nOlo The cost containment plan, blanket tuition coverage for 35 credit hOUTS per year, was raised this year by $585 to 56535. Room and hoard fees increased by S170 per student over last year's cost. Hendricks said the university does everything possible to keep tuition in· creases minimal but ultimately the addi· from corne must funds tional somewhere. expenses in "We can control increases , only to a certain extent, . he said. Income from residence fees and food service revenue should provide the university with nearly S5OO,OOO more than last year. Room and board and tuition fees pro­ vide PLU with 73 percent of its total revenue. Since enrollment is not expected to in· crease within the next few years the university may find it necessary to find II.lternative sources of income.

ASPLU to be 'issueoriented" concemed with student opinions

by Kathy Lawrence Mast Staff Reporter

Characterizing PLU's senate as a "perfect mesh," Laurie Soine, president of ASPLU, said it is time for PLU's stu· den� government to "expand." Soine explained that the group redefined its goals for the upcoming semester duriug iUt fall retreat, held September 4, 5 &nd 6 at Camp Burton on Vashon Island. She said the senate decided that its major goal is to become "Issue-oriented." "We've decided to take some stands and start about the state of the institution," Soine said. She added that ASPLU wants to b6.:0me more in tune with the CODCerns and opinions of PLU'I' student body. In order to improve !his communication, ASPLU needs to build better channels between its executive officers, the senate and studl!nta, Soine said. She cited ASPLl"a retreat as a step in this dirtoCtion. She said Dot only were a number of goala establiahed, but an "ex· tremely positive" fre.mman orientation was organized. ExpoSing the freshmen to the iSenate's enthusiasm helps promote freshman in· volvement, Soine said. Jennifer Hubbard, vice president of ASPLU, agreed that ASPLU's retreat helped improve communication. S!'Ie said a great deal of prqgrsm planning and goal setting was accOmpliShed.

"I can't compliment the senators eDoug!\," Hubbard !laid. "They are so get to willing enthusiastic and involved." To become more "iasue-oriented," the senate needs to work on its ability to choose an issue and take a stand on it, Hubbard said. Although most issues will deal strictly with PLU, she said, ASPLU is looking for ways to help im· prove PLU's awareness of national issues. An example of such an attempt m..igh t include sponsoring forums or political panels, Hubbard said. "Their (the senate's) willingness to discuss iaauea ia incredible," she added. Soine pointed out that ASPLU was handed two additional "challenges" this fall: the los! of Program Director Kevin Beggs and the arrival of a new ASPLU advisor, Dana Miller. Although Beggs resigned in the mid· die of his term, Soine said Beggs helped complete scheduling for the upcoming semester before leaving PLU. Miller, new to PLU, has brought many new perspectives to ASPLU, and is do­ ing a "fabulous job," according to Soine. Miller replaced Teresa Garrick, ASPLU's advisor for the past six years. Soine is optimistic about PLU's stu· dent government. PLU's students want to be aware of wha� ;:; happening in the senate, she said. Senators are going to emphasize communication with their dorms, thereby further increasing stu' dent awareness, Soine said.

C onstruction not need increased acreage by Carta T. Savalll Mast stafl reporter If all the buildings PLU needed were built tomorrow, there would be little n i · crease in total campus acreage. In this way the university can main, tain a steady one or two percent growth without expanding beyond ill! needs. said Jim Phillips, Phy.!!ical Plant director. Very few existing buildings will be .!! acrificed, he said. In!ltead, new buildings will be erected on hilsides like the area between the Rieke Science Center and the back sides of Kriedler HaU and Eastvold Auditorium. To maintain the delicate balance bet· ween the 01 and the new, Phillips and hi.!! crew of 80 must spend a.!! much time maintaining existing buildings as they do planning for new ones. During the summer when campus traffic is light, the work is constant. Ingram Hall, vacated by the School of Nursing. is receiving a $325.000 facelift before the art department expands in· side and the communication arts depart· ment moves from Blomquist House. Cost estimates (or the project fluctuated betw«8n a low estimate of 5100.000 to a high of $400.000. Phillips said. After reviewing three separate plan.!! for In· gram. PLU President William Rieke ac· cepted the $325.000 bid. "There are some concessions, Phillips said, "but it will be to code, comfortable and adequate." Rieke. who will begin his 11th year

this fall. .said the university's construc· tion "priorities depend on where the money falls." The addition of 49 computer terminal stations in Memorial Gym for student use was one of the top priorities, PhiWps


Cost for the project is $42.000. Similar terminals wlli also be pvailable for studenll! on Ramstad's fifl'lL noor. East campus. the former elementary school which is leased to PLU by the Franklin Pierce School District. will also be upgraded. Phillips said- a Wellness Center for the School of Nursing i.!! also . planned there. In other projects. the Physical Plant's heating and utilities division is replac· ing cracked sewer lines. The 5250,000 job will pay off in the long run. Phillips said. because the cracked lines were allowing rain water and other debris to seep in. which in· creased the cubic feet of sewage PLU was paying for. PLU is charged 12.50 per hundred cubic feet, Phillips said. Immediate plans call for the replace­ ment of only two buildings: Haavik House. used by the School of Nursing. and \\'beeler House. used by the School ofBusin�. As other facilities are either built or renovated. the use of those two houses will be absorbed. he said. Another major project on campus was the addition of three student parking lots: the University Center extension lot. a Stuen Hall resident lot on 120th

A fire started by a welder's t.ofclt ig' nited aome combustible materials last may and caused severe roof and water damage, he said. The fire, which beg.n in the basement, did not delay the renovation. Absher Construction Co. of Puyallup, contractol' for the project. was covered for the loss through fire insurance. The University normally accepts bids from severaJ construction companies before choosing an .ffordable offer. That process was eliminated. however. and a contract negotiated directly with Absher because of their past work for PLU. he said. "They had such a good track record,'" Phillips said. "The did a good job on the Science Center." Absher also built Stuen and Ordal Halls and the library. The interior of the building was gut· ted and replaced with new walls, win· dows, an elevator and electrical wiring. There had bee n no other work done on the building since the completion of ad· ditional c1a9ll rooms on th wesL side in 1958. The addition was originally fitted with a nat roof even though the main building had a pitched roof. The nat roor

was chosen because it was cheaper in the short run. PhiWps said. Now that both sections have been remodeled. pitched roofs have bee n add ed because of long·term durability. The buildiOS's mechanical equipment will aJafJ be stored in the roof. he said. The renovations has given Ramstad a longer life span, but that is not the ease in Harstad. Phillips said. AJthough 1586.000 worth of wm-k WI.." done to both the inside and outside 0r Harstad. the historic building atill re­ quires a new plumbing system and otber renewal projects. Energy consumption in the building has been reduced by 40 to 50 peroent since the light fLXtures were rewired and outdated were replaced with circuit breakers, he said. "In many projecta there Is a IXISt payback." he said. "In aeveraJ years the cost of lightios -)in Harstadjwil.l be reduced."

Because the building is on 'he Picrce County Historica1 Register, all projects must be approved by the Pierce County


Phillips said he has budgeted Harstad renovations the past 12 years. but either the lack of money. or the priority of other projects kept the work on the shill until now. Prior to this summer. the installation of an elevator in the 1940s was the last major renovation project in Harstad. Rather than risk wiring problems by repairing the outdated elevator. a new system was installed by Sound ElevaWr. The Seattle-based finn aJso replaced the elevators in Tinglestad. The Tinglestad elevators were an ex· ample of q:.1ality sacrifices made in order to complete a project, Phillips said. When Tinglestad was built in l&967, there was not enough funding to install a superior elevator system. AJthough safety was not jeopardized, allowances were made in the type of mechanicaJ equipment. Governing each elevator to stop at either odd or even·numbered Hoors also cut costs.

RLO relocates in Harstad, enjoys additional office space by Krl.t! Thorndike M a st Projects Editor

"A minimal amount of money W89 spent" in relocating the Residential Life Office to first Hoor Harstad from the Administration Building, said Lauralee Hagen. director of Residential Life. "We moved into what was there and made it work," said Hagen. "We painted the waDs and put carpet down. but that's "bout it." she said. The space was previously occupied by the hall director's apartment. the RHC office, Associate Dean for Student Life Kathy Mannelly's office. and a classroom. The main RLO office. and Housing Coordinator Jan Maul Smith's office are now located in Harstad. The classroom is being cooverted into an RHC meeting and office area. said Hagen. The hall director apartment has been moved into the assi.!!tant hall director's . quarters and the a.!!sistant director's room has been reloca� to second floor Harstad.

Lifelong leaming goal of higher education by Brian DalBalcon

Mast Ed itor

"Education is what remoins after oon­ tent has been forgotten:'soid Dr. Pat Cross of the Graduate School of Educa· tion. Harvard University,in her keynote address to the Fall Faculty Conference last ....ook "'Fortunately, students don't remember the content of what we work so hard to teach. fI they did remember, they would be candidates for early retirement, in favor of college students ....ith new up-to-date information."' she said. In her spooch. Cross suggested what faculty and adminstrators can do to create ex::ellence in higher education. '"Universities should prepare their �tudents for life in the 21st century. The one thing we can predict is that th..ings ...i11 change and that education is the best way we can prepare people to odapt to change," Cross said. She cited a report entitloo., A Nation At Risk. wh..ich criticized the American eduCiltion sy�tem. The report kickoo. off a movement which resultoo. in the formation of 300 state educational task forces and com· mti tees which made recommendations of how to improve the national educa· tion system. But many of the solutions by educa­ tional reformers do not remedy the pro­ blem. '"State reform.:! that raise entrance requirements may at their best be call­ ing for improved learning for high school students. But they avoid the issue of improved education for college students.'" Cross said. '"Where we should be clammering for better colleges for students, we are demanding better students (or our colleges." Cross said that the task of educators is not to prepare students for life in the computer age, but to prepare them to adapt to a world of change.

Harvard UnIversity professor PatrIcIa Cross delivers her keynote address to the Fall Faculty Conference.

' " What students know when they leave PLU is not nearly as important as what they are capable of learning.'" Cross said. She stated that the explosion of knowledge is so great right now that scientific and technical information doubles betwoon a student's freshman and senior years in college. '" So one way to approach educational planning is to ask 'What do we hope re­ mains after content has been forgotten?' fI we phrase the question that way, it casts a new light on what we mean by excellence in higher education.'" CroSll explained.

'" Education is far more than the transmission of knowledge. fI we were to content ourselves with only this,then we would move backwards, with each generation reinventing the whee\."' CroSll said. '"More importantly is how our students think about learning,,. Cross quoted one scholar who said, "Schooling- basic or advanced- that does not prepare the individual for fur­ ther learning, has failed in no matter whot emphasis it succeeds in doing. '" What educators should be doing is to teach students to think, to analyz.e, and to create their own methodology, Cross said.

"A good idea todoy can be worth millions. Idea power is the most important economci stimulus of all.'" Cross stated. She cited from the book, In Search of Eltcellence, which called this kind of mental power, 'productivity through people'. Productivity comes from knowledge and from people who know how to generate it and use it, ahe said, "Increasingly people are asking ror students who can invent new products. interpret trends, and anolyze pro­ blems, '" said Cross. The change from voluing information to valuing ideas hos been elttroordinari­ Iy ropid. The chaUenge of today's stu­ dent is not to locate relevent informa· tion, but to put it together into new perspectives and ideas, Cross eltplained. "The well stuffed mind has been outclassed. It simply has been replaced by the,"she said. The Nationollnstitution of Education recently issued a report entitled ' In· volvement in Learning' which said that undergroduate education could be great­ ly improved if throo conditions were applied-O student involvement 2) higher expectations of students and 3) ossessment and feedback.

Student involvement was defined as "The amount of time,energy, and effort students devote to the learning process," "Involvement in learning is critica!:' said Cross. The NI E report drew the conclusion that the amount of student development, learning, and personal development WiLh any program is direct­ ly proportional to the quantity and quality of student involvement in that program. The study concluded that students who are involved in almost anything on campus are more likely to learn and less likely to drop out than those students who live on the periphery,

"What we really need to take away from this conference is a real determina­ tion to be involved. Loyalty to learning translates in the long run into loyalty to the institution," said Dr. Janet Rassmusen. associate professor of languages, in her opening comments on the faculty panel discussion held during the F'all Faculty Conference last week. The panel discussion was held with PL U faculty and administrators to discuss the Five-Year PIAn with par­ ticular emphasis to Excellence in Educa· tion and facully involvement in teaching. Members of the panel answered ques­ tions submti ted by fellow colleagues on topics ranging from institutional plann­ ing to evaluation methods of outstan­ ding teaching. The panel was composed of Dr. Will iam Rieke, PLU president; Dr. Janet Rassmussen, associote professor of languages; Dr. Ernie Anrkrim, usociate professor of economics: moderator Dr. Davis Carvey, professor of busineSll administration; and Dr. Pat CroSll. chair of the Administration, Plan­ i the n ing and Social Policy committee n Graduote School of Education.

"H the university were to grant the 15 percent compensation increase promised in the Plan, it would have to raise tuition 14 percent ito make up the difference)." Much discussion throughout the con· ference concerned evaluotion of teaching methods."As teachers, we ate used to critica! examination of our professional research work, But if the evaluators come !lfter our teaching, that is another matter.

S -Year Plan to follow familiar gameplan by Brian OalBalcon Mast Editor


The following nterview i U'(J1j held /Cilh PLU Pruident William Rieke aoout hill Fioe-Year Plan. a propfJllal which Iftaielj the unioerlJilll i! plam and educational phiiol/Ophi('1j unlil itlf centennial n i 1990.

What will PLU be like in the year 1990' "The major strategy or gameplan is to keep building on the strengths that have brought us this far- build on the proven record. The last decade brought us a long way in terms of quality and numbers of st.udents, faculty, and facilities. How will PLU balance its liberal arts curriculum with tbe demand for more proCessionallicboo!lI? "By the intention of the majority of the people on campus. liberal arts is still, and will remain. the core. The teaching of the liberal arts, meaning those things which teach us to reason and com­ municate, are those things which best prepare us forlifelong learning. On the other hand. the professional schools that we have are good, strong schools and thf' will always be tension between them and the liberal arts. For example, in the School of Nursing there is barely enough time to satisfy core requirements because the cur· riculum is so crowded with professional requirements. There will always be that tension and I see that problem getting worse, not-.better There is also outside pressure for the professional schools. The short·term market is demanding more specializa' tion. When you graduate with a specialized education, you are going to be snatched right up. But five to ten years down the line, I am not sure that specialized education will serve you as well when you go through midlife. Look at my case. I have a specialized education (in mediciriel. Much of what I learned is speciali7.ed information that is now outdated and obsolete." With all the new construction and renovation on campua, is the university ell:panding too faat for its fiscal support b_' "We went through a period from 1970 to 1985 without the contruction of any new major building. We built only the physical plant and a smaU math/com· puter .science bui l ding. That's 15 years without a capital project of any significance. That's too long because the rest of the world will pass you by. If you don't keep up your facilities, you lose the ability to deliver & quality education.


President WHllam Rieke

Then there is the question of why we don't put more money into salaries. In my mind, the university's real strength is its ablity to draw a quality studenL body. If you lose that ability because you have outmoded facilities you have lost the whole ballgame. 1 hate to say that facilities have greater priority than faculty, they are almost equal. but it is sometimes easier to move in one direction than another. What has happened is that we have expanded the number of faculty very rapidly and in greater proportion than the number of our students. The conse­ quence of that is that we are unable to do as much salary-wise as we would like. If the primary source of income is our students and our primary expense is payroll. If that expense is greater than your income rate, then that restricts you from paying personnel as much as you would like." .... How doea the university plan to regain that balance between payroll ell:' penses and revenue from students? , . Rather than fire or layoff faculty and staff. it is better to reverse that im· balance by attrition. After someone leaves the university, we must ask 'Do we really have to fill that position?' In· stead, we will look to see if there is any way that that job can be done by some present staff or faculty member. If we are really serious about getting better pay, then we have to get our sut­ denufaculty ratios closer.

Right now, if there is a good candidate we want for a new Regent we cannot get him because we don't have enough con­ trol with our corporate owners and it gets lost in the system. But. with the New Lutheran Church, we will have a group of corporate owners whose sole concern will be PLU. We will also work closely with them for the selection of our Regents. Then PLU will have greater control selecting those Regents who can really open doors with their contacts."

The music never stops at KPLU·FM

Within the past few weeks PLU's 100,00 watt National Public Radio af· filiate station has begun broadcasting 24 hours a day. seven daYIi a week. Last spring the station initiated overnight jazz programs on Friday Bnd Saturday but did not have the funds to do the same on weeknights. Now stereo jau continues until 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. Music is heard 28 hours each day on the weekend. "The introduction of a 24 hour broad· cast day is the result of requests and funding support from the listeners," said FM·88 Program Director Scott Williams. KPLU's weekend jau offerings in· clude concert programs and six hours of blues on Sunday night. Overall the station airs over 119 hours of jau each week and over 48 hours of news and public affairs programming. In addition KPLU's signal has been extended. FM-88 is now heard from north of Everett to south of Olympia and from the Cascade Mountains to the Olympic MOW'Itains on the coast.

KPLU currently uses the Westar satellite t(o record programs from Washington D.C. The station's own reporters must still use telephone lines to transmit stories back to the newsroom. This causes sound distortion. The miCfownve will also enable KPLU to simulcast programs with public television station KCTS· channel 9. Live concert broadcasts will be possi· ble with the system. Such broadcasts are currently impossible due to the break·up of A.T.& T. and the increasing price of telephone line access rates. Williams said FM·88 is also trying to reach more people and be more visible in the community by sponsoring concerts (see related story). KPLU is represented at the Western Washington FaiT n i Puyallup this year by a booth located inside the Blue Gate. Program schedules and window stickers are available at the booth. The number of people Usfening to the station has been steadily increasing for tbe pa.!lt two years. said Williams. The most recent radio ratings indicate that more people tune in to FM·88 than'to some commercia] T0p-40 radio atations.

Modest Fair grows immense, but still down-home fun BO)'II. are scheduled to appear this weekend. Products on display range from slicer­ dicers and juice-o-matics to computers, pre-fabricated homes and the latest "Rambo" paraphnnalia. In fact while visiting some of the Fair's hundreds of exhibita. you can buy a car, join the Washington Stale Trap­ pen;' Association. bring home a grand­ father clock. or enlist with the U.S. Marine Corps. Artists and craftworkers can be found sketching, photographing, painting, blowing glass and pounding horseshoes. What makes a day at the Fair com· plete is the food.

by DavId Steves Mast News Editor Back in 1900 the Western Washington Fair began as a modest gathering of local fMmers displaying their produce. �ighty·fi...e years later "The Fair" still gi\'es farmers a chance to brag about their oversized squash and prize.. winning LUrnips. But it's grown inl.O much more. Millions wilJ "Do the Puyallup" thi, fall and the Fair has something a little different to offer each one. For some the Fair means great food. Others go to the Fair for its wide voriety of entertainment. And there are plenty of exhibits through which to browse. Of course for kids. the Fair means playing daredevil on the roller, seeing the sights from atop the Ferris wheel and munching on pink puffs of cotton cand),.


raspberry jam and melted butter and hamburgers topped with a healthy mound of fried onions. The food fare at the Fair has enough variety to tempt even the choosiest tastebuds. For those not n i the mood for hot dogs, popcorn or piua wedges, there is takc-out Chinese food, seafood. deli­ style sandwiches, giant cinnamon· covered elephant cars. barbcqued ribs. Italian pasta and even "Mellican hotdogs." Doing the Puyallup in 1985 is quite a bit more than it wos at the turn of the cl!ntury. With the wide range of sights to see. places to eat and things to do. there's something for eVCf)'one.

When it comes to enLCrtainment there is D little bit of everything. All over the fairgrounds visitors can find traditior.aJ rodeo entertainment. jazz musicians. country·western bands. folk dancing. kickboxing and even a little rock 'n' roll.

Occasional showers could not dampen the spirit of the crowd that attended Bob Hope's show last Friday evening at the Western Washington Fair n i Puyallup. The evening's rain merely gave Hope more material for his jokes as ushers provided trash bags to keep folks dry. Hope entertained as the first act of this year's fair. Although the show began about 20 minutes late, the grandstand's capacity audience was pa· tient and greeted the veteran enter­ tainer'a first Puyallup appearance with a standing ovation. Singer Patrician Price. a cross bet­ ween Loretta Lynn and Pia Zadora. was the comedian's opening act and received a �oderate reception from th\! crowd.

When Hope took the stage 30 minutes later he hod the audience laughing with the first thing he said. He poked fun at Puyallup and his old partner Bing Crosby who was born in Tacoma. DUring the hour of songs and snappy patter Hope managed to include some subtle pop philosophy and social commentary. Probably the low point to his perfor­ mance came near the end when he began a series of anti·homosexual jokes that were particularly unkind. The crowd reacted with little enthus.iasm to these gags.

an encore of his theme song "Thanks for the Memories." But really it should have been the au' dience saying thanks to Bob Hope for providing a truly enjoyable evening at the fair.

Waylon Jennings' recent concert at the Western Washington Fair in Puyallup proved that country music has gone beyond the twangy tunes and cor­ ny ballads for which it has come to be known. Cowboy hata dotted the crowd at last Saturday's performance but for the audience members most pa:t represented all ages and styles. Members of Jennings band opened the show with a traditional slide guitar solo followed by a rendition of the country· rock song "Who'll Stop the Rain." It is to Jennings that he allows his musicians to perform alone because they art'! accomplished artists in their own right. Singer Jessi Colter took the stage next performing several tunes including her hit single "I'm Not Lisa.'" Jennings and Colter, who are also hus· band and wife, often appear ,ogether. Their songs reflect the good and bad times in their relationship. Colter said, "'We just got to tell all our business in our songB." After 20 minutes she left the stage and Jennings entered to whistles and applause. The crowd seemed to tum on to the man who has won two Grammys and four country music awards. This share-cropper's 50n he! certainly broken more ground in country music than he ever did n i his West Te:us home. Jennings got his start in the music business after meeting Buddy Holly n i 1958. By 1965 he was rooming with Johnny Cash in Nashville and had sign. ed a record contract with RCA. The conservative image of country i in the 19605 was changed forever blending of rock rhythms and in·

struments with the traditionaJ country sound. Late in 1976 Jennings and Colter released an album with Willie Nelson caJled "Wanted: The Outlaws". That album was to become the pioneer recor· ding of "contemporary country". It became the first ever Nashville­ produced platinum seller. Jennings' opening piece last Saturday characterized that new style of music. "Are You Ready For the Country?" aptly displayed his rich, often·gravelly voice. Jennings set n i cluded an anti-drug song, once again highlighting the per­ sonal nature of his music. He spent much of his career battling the effects of whiskey and other drugs. Jenning's performance featured some selections that the crowd recognized from the first chords, "Only Daddy That'lI Walk the Line"', "Basics of Love"' and "Goed 01' Boys" - the theme to the television show "'The Dukes of Haz:r.ard.·· Jessi Colter then jOined her husband for a few tunes and some good·hearted teasing. In reality Jennings credits his wife with his renewed direction n i life. " She stuck by me. She saved my life," he said. Finishing the concert with "Good Hearted Woman"" Jennings received a standing ovation and returned for an en­ core of"I've Always Been Cra.:r.y". The audience responded with another standing ovation. The crowd seemed to appreciate the couple's warm attitude and creative lighting added to the intimate feeling. In fact, the only problem with Jenn­ ings' concert was its length · 40 minutes was far too short a time to appreciate this country music pioneer's talent.

Getting Into your studies, taking an active part In life; that Is the best way to get the most out" of your college education. Student Involvement, as defined by Dr. Patricia Cross, chair of the Graduate School of Education, Harvard Unlvelsity, Is "the amount of time, energy and effort students put Into the learning process." Involvement In learning Is critical. A National Institution of Education report found that 1) the amount of student In'/olvement, learning, and personal development Is directly proportIonal to the Quantity and Quality of student Involvement In that program. The study concluded that students who are Involv­ ed In almost anything on campus are more likely to graduate and less likely to drop out than those living on the periphery. Involvement In your education does not all have to be sullen and In the classroom. One of the most 1m· portant aspects of college Is the social life-going out for a pizza with friends, poppIng popcorn In the dorm, or spendIng time with a special friend. It simply means engaging In some activity related to campus that you grow from In some way. PLU has more campus organizations, part·tlme Jobs, scheduled and non-scheduled events to keep person busy alt his hears In school. Go out. Discover them. And live life to the ful lest­ every day.

Bruce Larson, and Safety Don "The alums always bring a lot of guys, ' and they are really tough on defense. They hurt because they don't get to practice on offense, so they are limited," Westering said. The Lute varsity is very deep at runn· ing back. linebacker and deftmsive back according to Westering. However he says they ha\'e some holes to fill in the and offensive defensive lines.

F B Sq uad Wins F rench Riviera Classic Many football teams dislike playing their games on the road because of the unfamiliar surroundings of their op­ ponents home fields and fans. But following a recent PLU football Learn road trip. I don't think you'll hear any Lute footballers complaining. The Lutes tour of France to play n i the French Riviera Classic July 16·30 was one of football and ambassadorship. both jobs done well by the squad. On the football side of the coin. the Lutes fared very well sweeping a three­ game series of the Paris Blue Angels by scores of 40-12, 09.0. and 36-13. "We experienced a range of emotions dropping in on a different culture." said PLU head coach Frosty Westering. "It started with frustration. but the upward spiral brought excitement and .. inspiration. The squad struggled the 11rst. few days in Nice !pronounced "Neece"l with the language barrier. trying to clear up lodg· transportation and ing. meal. arrangements. When the int.erpreter arrived. things began to fall n i to place. "Throughout the trip. our body llinguage was betl,cr than our literal delivery:' claimed Westering. "We learned more moves than a dancer n i a disco." The Lutes acted as ambassadors for the U.S. in all that they did. They put on a passing drill prior to a soccer game in Nice before a crowd of nearly 30.000 people. At the Promenade de Anglais tParade of Flowers) n i Nice. one of the biggest in France. the team marched. did go-drills and passed out flowers to spectators. They represented PLU and the U.S. well which drew nothing but high praise from Westering. "Our visit transcended football and PLU." he said. "We represented our country in other ways and 1 was proud of our ambassadorial performance. We certainly weren't perceived as Ugly Americans." The Lutes visit La France originally was to play a French and an Italian all· star team. along with the Paris Blue Angels, in the French Riviera Football

The Lutes, on their recent trip to FranCil, fared vary well capturing the French Riviera Classic title. But the trip wasn't all football. The team did find time for sight·seelng, and one of the backdrops for the trip was the scene here In Nice_ Classic. But because of a jurisdictional dispute between AMERFOOT and the French Sports Federation, the two teams had to bow out, leaving just the Blue Angels and the Lutes. "The Paris Blue Angels are probably the best football team in Europe, " claimed West.ering. "To improve, the Europeans will need a coaching nfusion i from America." '. "They can deal with power, but not finesse." Westering continued. "On bootlegs and count.ers. the French couldn't find the hall. They play like Gladiators "

'But football wasn't the only thing on the Lutes agenda in France. The team found time to go on a buying spree at a

perfume factory outside Cannes, along with trips to the Cannes Film Festival Theatre. Monte Carlo and the beaches.

Lutes Get N ational Air Time For viewers watching the University of Wll9hingt.on-Oklahoma State Univer­ sity football game last Saturday, the au· dience was given aD added treat.

Mortvedt Library Simplifies System by Miriam aacon

Mast reporter

The Mortvedt Library is installing a new coding system, hoping to save time and impr.)ve H.e facility's IJervice to students, The present system is too time­ consuming, according to Edith Landau, the library's project manager, With the present system everything is doneby hand, said Landau, citing handl· n i g overdue notices and fines for over­ due books as examples. There is a lot of checking, counter-checking and detailed clerical work, she said. According to Landau there will be more available personnel to work at the desk. " More time to help people," she said. The new system is totally electronic. Each book will have a bar code number and studenta will have a bar code on the back of their ID cards. The upcoming system will U96 both bar codes to check out materials to a stu·

dent, said Landau. The system is "in· capable of errou, " she said. "It will save a lot. oftime." The system works much like the elec· tronic system that most grocery stores use. The library will have a pencil·type intstrument which will read the bar code on the material being checked out and the bar code on the student's 10 card. The system will then automatically register that material with the ID bar rod•.

The system will come into use as soon as all the books and materials n i the library have ben assigned bar codes. This new system will eventually bring a new card catalog system using com· puter terminals. The new terminal system will help students find books and tell them if the book is in the library or if it has been checked out. Landau said the transition period will take one to two years. She expects the new system to be n i full operation by next September, butis optimistic thatit could be in use by this spring.

"It was a real awakening," said head coach Bruce Haroldson. "coming out of our shell to visit countries not dominated by television of Americaniz· ed sports." "It was a marvelous experience," claimed Haroldson. "The level of basket· ball play was 'about what I expected. The best teams such as Ammerud and Alvik are close to U.S. Division I caliber. The other teams could be liken. ed to our Division II or NAlA schools." "Our contact in Norway was Arne Stokke, a political science professor at the University of OBlo, who introduced

" It took a while to get used to interna. tional rules, which includes an advantage-disadvantage concept," Haroldson said. "If contact creates no dissdvantage for the offensive or defen. sive player, no foul is called." " fhere is a t.endency for the games to get a little rough." continued Haroldson. "The only thing tougher was the sugar withdrawl pains. I think we O.D.'don Scandanavian pasties."

Choosing a long distance company is a lot like choosing a roommate.

It's better to know what they're like beforeyou move in.

Living together with someone for the first time can be an "educational" experience. And living with a long distance company isn't any different. Because some companies may not give you all the services you're used to getting from AT&T. For instance, with some companies you have to spend a certain amount before you qualify for their special volume discounts. With some others, voice quality may vary. But when you choose AThT, there won't be any surprises when you move in. You'll get the

same high-quality, trouble· free service you're used to. With calls that sound as close as next door. Guaranteed 60% and 40% discounts off our Day Rate-so you can talk during the times you can relax. Immediate credit for wrong numbers. Operator assistance and collect calling. So when you're asked to choose a long dis­ tance company, choose AThT. Because whether you're into Mozart or metal, quality is the one thing everyone can agree on.

Electronic check-out delayed by MIriam Bacon Mast reporter The Mortvedt Library must take a "giant step backwsrd" before going for­ due to the new electronic bar coding checkout system. said Pstty wsrd.,

Koessler, library clerk. "We are doing more by hand," she said, because the mact:.ines used i n the old system were taken out and the new system is not yet ready. The old system of stamping the stu· dent's 10 number onto the checkout card cannot be used dUring the transi· tion period because everything had to be bar coded, said Koossler. Edith Landau, the library's project manager, said she hoped the system would be in full operation this fall. However, due to the long, complex process of barcoding all the materials in

the library, the time-saving system is to be expected by FaU 1986 at the latest. The delay now is programming the tapes, which list aU the books owned by the library, into the computer terminal.

"It onawers a lot of questions that came up. It's much more of a peer raview system, and that's what I like. I tbinlt a lot of students will like it," Dun­ mire said. Mannt'Uy said the new system serves to "basica.1l.y refine and streamline, to make the system more workable and more fair to students." She said PLU's judicia1 system of a year ago was a "working draft," and that most of the bUg! should be eliminatod by thenew system. Last year, PLU made acme majO!' changes in it'a judicial policies.

Campus Measles still danger for unimmunized C

by a rla T. Savalll

Mast staff reporter




A measles epidemic that caused three e i t i: rei��o :; : e� �h�� datory college immuniza�ion laws are desperately needed. Unfortunately, it may take another major outbreak before colleges and universities nationwide adopt man· datory laws, said Sharon Boroski, direc· tor of the Health Center at Gonzaga Univerisity in Spokane. Immunizations are not required at PLU. only strongly recommended. Carlyn Wold, a registered nurae at PLU's Health Center, said "we (PLU) don't have anything mandatory becauae there is nothing mandatory n i the state." Gamaga University is just one of several Washington slate colleges who have either adopted or are considering mandatory immunization laws. Whitworth College, also in Spokane. has a mandatory program. Washington State University and Seattle University are considering programs. Wold said PLU is hoping for a statewiae law, but until then, the Health Center will continue monitoring im· munization records of all incoming student5. Should a mandatory law pass, PLU would have to devise a system for en· forcementof the law.

Wold said she guesses the Admissions Office would be in charge of monitoring immunization records and turning away those who do not comply. CurrenUy, entering students are ask· ed to fill out a confidential health history which is kept on me in the health Center. If immunization records are found incomplete students are asked to come to the Health Center for a vaccine which covers hard measles, mumps and rubella. Compliance is voluntary. By acanninng student health histories, the Health Center is able to immunize 95 percent of all studenl:.8 needing shota, Wold said. Gonzaga's Boroski said ahe believes a mandatory law for college atudents should have been included in 1I law passed by tbe Washington State Legislature flve years . That law requires all school children through the 12th grade to be immunized. Boroski asked Gomaga officials to lobby for inclusion of college students, but the effort came too late. "I tried to get them to nclude i the col· lege age group, but it wasn't until 1981 that they started seeing the outbreaks." she said. The law was passed in 1980. Recent measles outbreaks are due to a red measles vaccine many children received between 1963 and 1968. The shot was not designed as a long term vaccine, and as a result, those children who are now n i college are contracting


measles, BO!"oski said. PLU requires only nursing atudents and athletes to be regularly immunized. The University of Washington, which runs a volUntary program, also requires ita health sciences students to be � perly immunil.ed. The Pierce County Health Depart' ment provides PLU's Health Center with serum for the vaccines. That enables PLU to offer the shots at no cost. Should that service stop however, the university will charge for immunit.a, tions, Wold said.

ThePierce County Health department also gives vaccinations for the cost of ... While a statewide immunization law is possible, Boroski said it is DIOn likely that individual institutions will imple­ ment their own programs. The same is true for other states. The Washington State Board of Health recently passed a resolution en' dorsing a mandatory college program but the resolution has no legal enforcement. Larry Brown, senior public health ad· visor for the Office of Preventive Health Service in Olympia, said he does not understand why there is no statewide legislation. "I don't know why becauae in the last three years colleges and universities have been measles target populations," be said. Several agencies have joined the fight

for mandatory legislation, among them the American College Student Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta. Both Wold and Boroski said college students aN! reluctant to get immunized because thoy either lack education about the seriousness of an outbreak n i their age group, or they are fearful of needles. Boroski and Gonzaga were nitially i met with reluctance from students but publicity over the Illinois University in· cidentcreated positive publicity. Not having a mandatory immuniza· tion prtlgl'alll could end up costing a university a lot mon money in the long run, especially if it has to aet up emergency services to handle an out­ break, Boroski said. Many universities, including PLU, do not have infirmaries, 80 students with communicable diseases would have to be housed somewhere other than the dor­ mitories, she said. PLU had a measles outbreak in 1979, Wold said. Five cases were reported and one st,udent was taken to the hospital. Ann Miller, a nurse practitioner in the Health Center for the last 11 years, said the epidemic "was something that hap­ pened without warning. When we got our flrst case it quickly spread to flve." After the fl rst day of the'epidemic, the Health Center was able to immunize over 1,000 students which helped con· tain the problem, she said.

PLU computer center expands; Bandy appointed computer dean by Mark Reys Mast reporter Many areas of the PLU curriculum have been changed or upgraded recent· Iy, but none so prominently as the university computer center. With money allocated this suInmer. the center was able to add to its already expanded facilities and to its faculty. The computer center is trying to establish a slandard or common com· puter forum. The school recently purchased about 30 new IBM·pc micro-computers. With these, the 28 VAX terminals and the three recenlly obtained computer pro­ jecting systems, the center staff hopes to make it as easy as possible to learn basic computer functions by limiting the types of computers the school uses. "By doing so, the slaff would be able to concentrate on just the selected few and not spnad themselves thinly among the various makes and models'-'said Bandy. " It will give U9 a year or two of stabili· ty:' he aaid. Starting this year, there will be a com· puter lab fee. Compiled hourly, th", charge will be included on the student'a PLU account. The fees are 75 cents per hour for use of micro-PC's and $1.25 an hour for the mini--computers.

The two user labs are louted in room 109 of Ramstad Hall and in Memorial Gym, room 105. The hours of both rooms are 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. These times will be chang· ed at a later date. The fees will not go into effect until Oct. IS, 80 students now have a chance to become familiar with the university's computers at no charge. . When asked why he felt the Ad· ministration was eltpanding the com· puter center, the n.ewly appointed Dean for Computing, Howard Bandy, replied, "There is an unmet need and the em· phasis in this area is an attempt to over· come that." Howard Bandy is new to the dean position, but very experienced with com' puter operations. He has been in the computer business since 1959, spending half of that time in computer center management and the other half in teaching on the college level. Bandy came to PLU in the fall of 198-4 as a professor of computer acience and still retains that title n i addition to the dean's seat. Other faculty added to the roster this aummer were Academic User Consul· tant Robert Paterson and co­ adminiatrative User Consultant Sally Hilberg.

Food service changes offer new foods, options By Judy Van Hom Mast staff repo rter

Food Service went through many changes this summer, to make the cam· pus a better place to eat, according to Food Service Director Bob Torrens. Students eating on campus now have a choice of what kind of meal plan they would like to have, and some new choices for food selection. For years students have been asking for a new rlan, said Torrens. It starteo\ picking up intensity about 8 years a�"', he added, then faded out with time:1 hen about 5 years ago the re­ quests for different Oleal plans cegan again, he said. " '!'wo years ago, was the strongest it's ever Ucen."Torrcns said.

With the requests came three dif· ferent meal plans available to students this year. The first is the full meal p�n. With this option the students have the same plan as the previous year. I t includes all meals on campus. The full meal plan seems to be the most popular, Torrens said. Quite a few students: have choaen this option. The second plan includes lunch and dinner seven days a week. Students pay 5675 for the two meals a day on campus, compared to the 5730 a semester for the full meal option. The least popular meal plan, according to Torrens, is the Monday through Fri· day full meal plan. This includes breakfast, lunch and dinner only during the week for 5625.

Torrens said he has received only favorable reactions on the policies so fu. He added that he's not sure everybody likes it, but everything he has heard 80 far hu been positive. The new meal plan was not the only change food 9ClVice undertook this summer. A bagel and deli bar was added to the list of main couraes offered. Now deli sandwiches and bagels are available for lunch and dinner every day, Torrens said. The added selection serves as another entree, Torrens added, and it provides an alternative to the other entrees served. Another additioq to the University Center Commons is the lo-foot salad

bar. In the put, the salad bar was located where the dessert and fruits are now. The seperate salad bar, which of· fers a lot more room, is at the e&3t end of the d.ining hall. The Food Service ataff rearranged the cafeteria in what they found to be a mon logical order, Torrens said. Now, when theatudents come through the entnance, (the exit in previous years) they can go directly to the salad bar. In previous yeara, the first item students picked up was the hot entree, Torrens said. With the new arrangement, the hot en· trees being the last item to be picked up, food can be eaten while it is still hot. However, if the food does get cold, the two new microwaves Food Service pur­ chased this summer are available to heat up the food.

Loan defaulters to have tax retums withheld Education department hopes to recover $250 m i l l ion

ICPS)ln itl! latest efforts to dramatize how tough itl! getting, the Education Department last week said it would sic the Internal Revenue Service on current and former studentl! who do not repay their student loans, The department says defaulters won't get their 1985 or 1985 tax refur.ds until they repay their loans, Department officials predict the agreement with the IRS ....ill . recoup 550 million to 5250 million in past due finan· cial repaymentl! next year, They hope to corral almost 80 percent of the ecofflaws, The department has publicized am' bitious recovery programs before, in· cluding ongoing media events like im· pounding defautler's cars and tem· porarily kicking IIOme schools out of aid programs, financial , Tms time, officials add, the recovered money probably won't go directly back into student aid, In all, current and former students still owe anywhere from 51 billion to S5 billion, according to various estimates. "This is the largest single effort in lel'ms of money to be returned to the U.S, Treasury," contends Dick Hastin�, the department's director of debt collection and management assistance services, " About 82 percent of the defaulters on our data ,base get income tax refunds," he claims. Hastings plans to mail final payment notices to about one million defaulters tms month, giving them two months to pay up or lose their 1985 refunds. _ State agencies will threaten to withhold 1996 refunds from another million defaulters.

'�We've agreed to accept 2,3 million referrals from the Education Depart­ ment.. accounting for 53,1 billion in debtl!," affmns IRS spokesman Steve

'll take a tape from ED with defaulters' names to match with our tllpe of people getting refunds." he explains

During the two-year program, the IRS can withhold defautlers' retums untill all loan obligations are paid. for example, if a defaulter expects a S500 1985 refund and owes 51,000 the IRS will withhold refunds n i 1985 and 1986,

Loan agreements worked with Lute defaulters Mast repOrter

by Gerd,Hann. Fos.n

It might not always be easy to make repayments on loans, Most PLU students meet their responsibilities, but there are slways some exceptions to the rule. Pat Hills. who is responsible for collec­ ting repayments on student loans at PLU, says there are always a few students who don't want to pay back their loans, "Mostly those are studentl! who quit school before getting s degree and !Wmehow feel they do not owe anything, but rather that society owes them something," she said, "Normally, however, it s i possible to work out an agreement when students have pro­ blems paying them back." Due to the ract that PLU is a private, comparatively small university, Hills believes that the students feel more responsible to the school. "It's not like

when you go to a uniller:..ty with about 20 to 30 thousand studer.ts. Where all you are is a number," she said. PLU's default rate 83 of June is ap­ proximately 5 per-c.ent, Compared to the national average of more than 10 per­ cent, this is very good, said Hills, Although collecting unpaid loans s i alwsys a matter of great concern, PLU is not very aggressive in doing so, said Hills. Before a collection agency is con· tacted, the defaulter receives selleral notices and Hills said she might also call the former student to work out an agreement. If repayments are still not made, a col­ lecting sgency will eventually have to take over. In certain cases, for eJ:.8mple when the debtor cannot be found. the case will be returned to PLU and then go to the Federal Government. Since 1979. when the Federal Govern­ ment offered itl! assistance in collecting debts on loan defaults, it has handled less than 44 cases, Hilla considers· th.i..s "Dot bad at all."

saying where the money went," Pyrek reports. "It's not only not likely the money will go back into student aid funding, but it's most definite it will go to the U,S, Treas�" Hasting said, "That, after all, is where student aid comes from," To get loan paymentl! back in 1982, federal attorneys in Philadelphia im­ pounded the cars of 17 area defaulters as collateral against their ollerdue loan payments, That same year, then·ED Secretary Terrel Bell temporarily withheld stu· dent aid funds from 400 schools .nth default rates Oller 25 percent, Last year, Congress authorized ED of· ficials to hire private credit rating agencies. "The credit agency program was eJ:' tremely successful," Hastings said. "It has doubled the amount collected since 1981."

Some states let schools withhold defaulters' college transcripts. A Kan­ sas bill would have prevented defaulters' children from getting stllte financial aid. Despite the high Don·payment rate. a spring 1985 study by the Higher Educa· tion Services CorporatioD suggestl! most defaulters are unemployed or ig· norant of repayment schedules, Most want to repay the debtl! but are financially unable, the study says. "There's a phone Dumber on top ofthe final notice," ED's Hastings counters, "We can work out arrangements for par­ tial payment if the defautler can't pay it allatonce."

New campus pastor plans donn worship by Mlrl.m B,con Mast Reporter

Not only will dorms ha'.'e this oppor­ tunity but the administrative offices will also. The Student Life Office will conduct morning praise on September 27, Not only wi1l the dorms be more in· volved with the campus ministry but campus ministry wishes "to get into (the) dorm to meet people and to be listeners," said Rieke. "It's time we get in touch with the students as well as administration," said Rieke. Another top goal of Rieke's is to " tain an informal 9 o'clock ser· vice," he said. 'This service will not be out of the Luth6l'an Book of Worship, but will be more student n i voilled. Rieke's appointment runs through May 31. 1986, When Vignec accepted the call to the Salishan Mission it was "too close to the end of (the) year to put a eall committee together," said Rieke, They wanted a year to find a permanent replacement.

It's official! For all the people who can't sland change, plug your ears. The year 1985 will be the single biggest year of change here on earth. Depending on who you are, the differences could be either spanking marvelous or simply disastrous. Le�'s face it. Change is upon us. PLU has been bursting at the seams with new projects and the campus has seen more changes in the last yellT that the past five combined.

Dorms commemorate PLU's history; provide recogn ition by Becky Kramer Mast reporter Each dorm at PLU has its own per· sonality. lifestyle and design. Think of Harstad and you envision a variety of ancient high--ceilinged rooms. Tingelstad makes you picture utilitarian· styled accommodations and Pfleuger brings thoughts of living in a cracker box to mind. The residence halls at PLU also have another image to convey. They bear the names of nine people from PLU's history, Haratad Han waa originally known as "Old Main." Built n i 1894, it housed the entire campua for many years. There were cl8ssrooms, the library, offices, donnitory rooms, apartments for facul· ty members snd their familit's. a chapel, l! social center. food serv ice, a laundry, dres'ling rooms for athletic teams, (I. heaLing plant, and a bookstoro:l. At the time it was a coed donn. containing scparste livingquarters for ·'Iadies·· and "young men." In 1960, Harstad was renamed n i honor of Bjug Harstad-founder of PLU {Pacific Luthersn Academy st the time) and the school's first president. Nils J. Hong was the first permanent president of Pacific Lutheran Academy, as it was called then. He was president from 1897-191B.

I n itiations pull dorms together by Clayton Cowl Mast reporter To most people, a college student wearing a Glad trash bag and serenading in the University Center or lugging a thirty·pound green rock may seem a little strange, but for over 600 entering Lute freshmen, the sights were commonplace as the newcomers were united through tradition and welcomed to the PLU campus. Originality and organization are two aspects of n i itiation that make it better each year, says Ivy Hall Director Bryan Stelling as activities wind to a close this weekend. "The main thing to keep in mind is that activities should be kept fun. It may be embarrassing, but initia· tion does bringpeople together." Most freshman find it hard to believe that being jarred from a peaceful rest at 3:30 in the morning or strolling to dinner with a pig nose on could bring on social responsibility and unity with one's peers. but many like the idea of initia· tion and have found it a positive ex' perience to remember. "It was really cool. We had a great ti�e after looking hack on it,"

remembered Rainier resident Cameron Swift, s freshman from Columbia Falls, Montana. "It was great when it was all over and they officially accepted us as a part of the dorm. It seems like some of the other freshmen never know when they can be accepted and feel like dirt. " Most campus initiations occurred dur­ n i g the flTst four days of school with the n�ost popular activity being the campus tour. This activity involved severa1 hun· dred freshmen receiving toure of the PLU campus at early hours of the mom· ing with varied levels of sound. Some dorms concentrated on alarming its freshmen sightseers. while others at· tempted to wake the entirecampus with various noise-making devices. Other dorm initiation projects includ· ed a 3 a.m. painting project by Alpine, a wet Harstad chorus line, a male scavenger hunt by KreidJer and an obstacle course and a plastic bag perfor­ mance in the dining halls by Foss Hall. Ivy plans a tour of the Parkland com· munity this weekend, while Cascade will feature their annual freshman talent show tonight in the Cave.. Some of the most tested freshmen were the new "Men of Rainier." Four

straight days of rigorous initiation ac­ tivity �ted the Q'ew of over 70 freshmen as the ooly all·maIe dorm of PLU toured the campus. e:r:ercised on the front lawn at 5 a.m. with tM help of the sprinkler system, and displayed their bodies with a wet T-shirt contest lit Harstad. Despite dowsings with water, elthibi:' tions in the University Center and road· trips to unknown localities. most freshmen still encourage initiation for next year's enteringciua. "It was rea.ny fun, but it would have been even better if we had more ac· tivities earlier so we could get to know each other better," explained Tonja Doepke, a Haratad freshman from Tacoma. Chris Reitan of Rainier agrees that in· itiation was a positive experience now that it is over. "It really served more than one purpose," he noted. "It helped us get a real good taste of dorm life and also gave us the chance to meet all the other guys in the dorm. It may have seemed like a pain at the time, but you can look back and see that it was a good experience."

I did get enough sleep, however. so that's that:' Tingelstad Hall was dedicated the next day, homecoming SundllY, November 5, 1967. Pfleuger Hall was named after P. I'fleuger. a religion and philosophy professor. Pfleuger is best remembered by Nesvig for booming voice. He never used a microphone when speaking in chapel and was notorious for yelling at the referees during athletic contests. Pfleuger is said to have defended himself with the words "They're getting paid, and it's our duty to let them know when they're not dOing their job right." Hinderlie has the distinction of being the only building on campus named after staff members. Originally named South Hall. the name was changed in 1966 to !lonor Bere"lt Severin Hindcrlie and his wife Ragna. Hindcrlie served as a janil.or lor 31 years and Mrs. Hinderlie worked in l..aundry and Food Service from 1923·28. Nesvig remembered Hind«lie as a "dedicated man who gave his life and soul to the schooL" Kreidler is the ooly dorm named alter a woman. Lora B.

New system better able to handle overloads

USRB, from page 1.

been "overloaded with relatively minor cases while more serious cases were handled administratively without the benefit of peer review." Sel;;ondly, that lower peer review boards were being "virtually excluded from participation from the judicial system." Thirdly, that too many students were being written up and :lent through a long judicial hearing process based on a guilty by association rat ionale. Egan, who is returning for another year on the Faculty Student Standards Committee, hopes that these and other grievances against PLU's judicial pro­ cess will l?e eliminated by the new Stu­ dent Judicial System. The new system brings about many changes, including the dissolvement of the USRB, which consisted of the three members of the Faculty Student Stan­ dards Committee, three students and an advisor. The USRB, fonnerly the university's highest judicial board, will be replaced by the Student Judicial Board. The Student Judicial Board will con­ sist of nine students and three non­ voting faculty advisors. In the past, faculty served 85 voting members on the USRB. "This puts faculty more in line with faculty roles in other student groups such as clubs and committes, where faculty are seen more as advisors," ex­ plained Mannelly. Egan agreed that there is no need for faculty to hold a voti ng role. "Students can handle the administra· tion of certain types of academic policies and faculty don't need to sit in on these types of cases." she said. The SJB will review cases n i four­ person panels. This will allow the SJB to review more cases. Mannelly said using three small boards will allow the SJB to review more cases. She ezpects it to make hear-

ings easier to schedule, and lessen the anxiety of students by putting them in front of smaller boards. First·time alcohol and visitation in· fractions will once again be heard by lower boards. Last year only 27 of PLU's 156 hear­ ings were heard by lower peer review board. This imbalance resulted from the new policy of sending first-time alcohol and visitation violation!! straight to USRB. Egan said she is pleased to see the lower boards being utilized, She said her biggest frustration last year while servo ing on USIiB was "my time being con­ sumed with cases that weren't of a serious nature coming to the highest

boani "

"It was ridiculous that last year so many cases went to the USRB," agreed ASPLU President Laurie Soine, one of the students who served on USRB last year. "This puts the power back in the donns and RHC." she said. Halls may opt to fonn a combined

board. Mannelly said because some halls hear substantially less cases than others, they should be allowed to com· bine their review boards and handle more cases. Hearing officers will be appointed to offer students an alternative to board hearings. This position was borrowed from the judicial program at the Univer· sity of New Hampshire. where the judicial system is very similar to that used at PLU, said Mannelly. She said this will replace administrative hearings. Hearing officers will probably be hall directors, RHC staff members, and possibly faculty members. and atudents. said Mannelly. She said she will nuake recommenda· tions to Fenili. who will appoint the h�rinp; officers.

Students may choose to have their case brought before a hearing officer rather thon a board. Mannelly said there are several advan· t.llges to hearing officers. She said this format allows cases to be handled more quickly, and that it is much more appropriate wnen cases in­ volve private or possibly embarassing situations that are too sensitive to bri.Jog before a group of people. She also ex­ plained that in some cases students can benefit from the one-on-one situation, and betm understand why they were written up.

"Students can ezpect penalties to be comparable to those of last year." said Dunmire. He said the Student Judicial was not organized "so people will get off any easier. They probably won't. But they've cleaned up the system, Things are more organized, more uniform. " MannelJy said she has received only positiVe responses to the new system, but said it will be a long time before sbe's ready to declare it a success, " Wben we actually get into implemen' ting the system- that's when we find out if there are bugs in the system," she said

'Alive in the Lute Dome' features Ventrella, comedy by Katherine Hedland Mast reporter A new program is in the works for PLU television viewera. A comedy/interview show hosted by students Dan Merchant and Rick Larsen. entitled "Alive in the Lute Dome," will air at the end of this month.

Episodes will include i!l�' views with well known personalities. comedy sketches. and music videos, as well as on·location. "people on the street" spots with PLU students. . Merchant. a senior broadcast lOur­ naliam major, calls the show "a sort of junior leaguer David Letterman.: ' He . aims for it to be a fun and entertaining, college-oriented show. The half·bour segments are taped live and will be shown bi·weekly. The premiere episode. taped on September 11, features an interview with Tony Ven-

trella, a KING-S TV sports-<:aster. Merchant described Ventrella as a "real card," saying the interview went very well. The show will also include two

comedy skits festwing Merchant and Larsen and a David Bowie video. Future guests may include Ross Schaefer, also from King-S TV. and Cin­ dy Reinhart, the soap opera know-it·all from "Northwest Afternoon." Contact has been made between the two and plans are still being discussed. So far they have had a great time on the show, said Merchant. Of his partner. Merchant said Larsen. a junior majoring, in political science. "is really fun to work with and we collaborate really well. We just sit around knocking heads until we come up with ideas. It's silly but fun, We don't really take it seriously," The two are anxious to see student reactions as nothing like this has ever been 10ne on TV here before. There will be a 5lleU preview in the Cave before the init.ial airing, Watch for the premiere of thia unique new sbow at the end of September.

Lutes crush Loggers 54-1 3 in Dome Duel 111

How "Sweet" it was;

Vindivich rushes for 139 yards in opener

by Clayton Cowl Mast staff reporter Who says football is a game for rough guys? To most Lute fans, grid ball is just a game of sugar snd spice - and very Sweet, PLU middle linebacker Tony Sweet collected seven unassisted tackles, had three assists and turned a blocked field goal into an 84·yard touchdown run as Pacific Lutheran drubbed cross·town rival Puget Sound, 54-13 in a Columbia Football League skirmiah held last night n i the Tacoma Dome. With the Loggers in scoring range on the Lute 17·yard line, Sweet blitzed on a Jim Beclunan field goa] attempt, block· ed the kick and sprinted untouched for a score that left UPS stymied for the en· tire game. '" just blitzed inside and the ball hit me in the chest and face mask." Sweet remembered. '" just started running with the ball and didn't know I would go all the way until ' got to about the 20." The blocked kick was the shot that tlrake the dike n i a rivalry traditionally wedged on momentum. The Loggers fai l ed to score again in the game, while PLU ran up 41 points in the final three frames. "This always has and always will be a game of momentum," explained Lute head coach Frosty Westering. "We could tum around and play those same guys tolnorrow and it would be a one touchdown game. Tony is a player for us. The score really doesn't tell the whole story." Offense was the big question mark for PLU this season, but a young front line keyed a 432'rard attack that saw junior transfer Mike Yindovich race for 139 yards on 15 carnes.·including a 46-yard run from scrimmage. "Our offensive line needs to mature, but they did play well tonight," Wester­ ing continued. "Everyone showed high energy and were ready to play. We were setting goals for a fourth-quarter surge and we got that, too." Sophomore quarterback Jeff Yarnell went 8 for 16 n i the air for 102 yards and one interception ss the Lutes took con' trol early. Yindovich took off around right end for a 28-yard touchdown burst to start the scoring spree, while Puget Sound responded with a Mike Oliphant touchdown dash n i the some period from 29 yards out. Senior Jud Keirn broke into the open for a 26'yard touchdown run in the se­ cond frame before UPS fullback Alain Patton bulled his way into the end Ulne from 10 yards out toequaJ the count. Sweet's blocked field goal attempt and touchdown combo made way for Yarnell to crank up on the next Lute drive and hit receiver Jeff Gates for a l5·yard score with 1 : 1 1 remaining in the first half. Pacific Lutheran pushed the ball downfield 61 yards in five plays on their second possession of the second half as Yindovich scored from a yard out. Yarnell found wide receiver Steve Welch open n i the end :wne from four yards out to start the final quarter, while Craig Puzey slanted into the end tone from three yards out to cap a 57-yard drive in eight plays. Stu Smith intercepted a Logger pass at the UPS 36 to set up a Steve Yalach touchdown run from five yards out. The Lutes travel lo WiUamett.e for their game on Saturday, Sept. 28.

"The 12th man: Lute Fans!'" read the banner draped across the second level of the Tacoma Dome at last night's PLU vs. UPS footbsU game. "Lute Spirit!"' hollered the mob of PLU fans waving "00 Lutes" signs. Lute supporters colored the crowd wearing gold and black head bands, baseball hats, PLU sweatshirts and Tee shirts, and even gold socks and neckties. Some of UPS's banners decorating the Dome r;;lad: "Prey on the Lutes," "Nuke the Lutes,"' " Ood's on our side too." "Go home Lute scum!" PLU signs read: "Shine Lutes Shine."' " Total Relesse," and "Energize." This is exac�ly what the Lute fans did. Miniture footballs. stufft.>d nnimals. and toys were nung through the air as Lute fans jumped to their feet after the

first touchdown. Fans screamed and swung gold towels overhead as PLU made the eItra point. PLU students clapped, cheered and jumped on top of the bleachers as their team led 34·13 in the middle of the third quarter. When the Loggers had the ball, "Oet 'em, �t 'em, get 'em!" screamed a fan. The Logger got tackled and the crowd erupted, "Yah!"' '"I'm 90 excited!'· said another Lute fan. " 1 just love foothaU.·· When the Lutes raised the score to 40-13, Logger fans began to leave like someone had yelled "FIRE!: on their side of the stadium. Laughing nnd cheer· ing. Lute fans waved goodbye across the Dome.

The PLU banners accurately depicted the outcome of the game. "Yes we can!:' one of the Lute banners read. and the fact of the matter is... YES WE DID.

Mary Ann Kluge. who will coach women's basketball, come to PLU from Idaho State University after coaching basketball and 8Oftball_ there for five y...... Kluge's decision to come to PLU was hued OD a desire to be at a smaller echool where she cou1d become mwtidimenaional-teach and coach both. At Idaho State. she only coached. October 16 is the date for women's basketball tryouts. with the t.eam being choaen on the 18th. Between the cuts and November 26 (the Lutes first game of the IIe88Onl, the team will be working on specific skills. aerobics, and weight """".",,

Elise LiDdborg comes to PLU as a coach in a manner similar to that of Trondscn. She also rowed for the Lutes for four years, then WI\S in the right illace at tae right time. when �e . coaching when the coaching posation opened. Women's crew will have a tough act to follow sa the lightweight team will be defending their national open regatta championship in flyweight pair� and the Western sprints title in lightweight fours. In order to gear up for this, practice is to start September 23 and continues and continues to the first week in November.

Women'. Tennl,

First Stacia Edmunds Marshall played tennis for PLU. Now ahe'a n i the coach'spoaiUon fort.he Lutes in 1986. The squad ahould be very strong in the upcoming aeason as the Lutes 1985 national tournament team MUms in­ tact. Not only does the roster not change. but a familiar name returns to - the PLU line-up. Senior Tanya Jang, PLU's number one singles player as a freshman and sophomore, will return to the Lutes roster after being out of school for the 1983 and 1985 seasons.

The Lady Lutes, 15-5 last year, 1 1th at the NAlA national tournament, will try to regain the conference trophy � i 1986, afta' it was anatched from th81r hands last spring.

Men'. Crew'

A1though activitiea for men's crew doesn't really pick up until April, coach Robert Trondsen is making plana for his 1986 squad. His decision to coach at PLU came quite naturally. After atudying and row­ ing for four years, and helping with the Lute aquad last 88a8OD, the coaching 0p­ portunity seemed perfect. Tnmd8en has a good aquad returning from Iaat year'a LaFromboiae and Meyer Cup championship team, which finiahed fifth of 22 ftoatillu at regionala i 1985, the best perfonnanc::e by a smaJ.I college.

ASPLU comptroller resigns position, withdraws from PLU by Kathy Lawrence Mast stall reporter ASPLU officers announced Wednes­ day that sophomore Ty Oekofski resign­ ed his post as ASPLU Comptroller. Altho\lgh two ASPLU officers have resigned since the beginning of the semester (Oekofski and Program Direc­ tor Kevin Beggs), Vic�President Jen­ nifer Hubbard said that ASPLU on the whole is mOfe stable than she has !K.-en it ' in past years. She added that a strong senate and good advisors will help ASPLU through its temporary crisis. In his letter" of resignation. dated Sept. 23. Dekofski attributed his deci­ sion to personal circumstances. He said that although he took his oath of office seriously when he was elected. he could no longer devote sufficient time or energy to the position. Hubbard commer.ted that while -Dekofski!sPer�nality -is -"it· replaceable", resignation is more positive than failure to perform adc< quately. She said that not only is Dekof· ski presently training to join the Seattle Pollee Department, he also dropped his fall semester classes. Mary Lou Fenill. vice president of Student. Life, said she was disappointed to hear of Dekofski's resignation because he was one of the hardest work­ ing st.udent leaders in recent years. Fenili added that despite her regret. she applauds Dekofski 's decision. She said that it is important for students to assess their situations and admit when they are in over their heads. By admit­ ting he had too much to do. Dekofski adoo n,:.ponsib1y, she ::Iai.:l.

In an interview last week, Dekofski said that during his term 88 comptroller he became frustrated with PLU's ad­ ministration. He said the administration fails to take ASPLU or student opinion seriously. People need to be made aware that ASPLU haa the potential to be a atrong student organization, said Dekofski. H e added that last semester the senate made a move in this directon by taking stands on certain issues. "ASPLU needs to exert some power and show we have a strong student government on campus so that the ad· ministration will take us seriously." he said. He said that Fenili is the only ad· ministrator with an "open door." "She probably won't do anything. but she always listens," Dekofski said. Fenili said that PLU administrators are interested in student opinions, but things can't always change because of that. She said it is like saying God does not answer our prayers because He said no. President Rieke ha.s an open door policy, Fenili added. She said perhaps Dekofski thinks she is the only accessi· ble person because she allows Tuesday tnrough Thursday walk·in periods. Anyone may come into her office from 4 to 5 p.m. and talk about anything. " 1 don't want to take more credit than what's due," she said. Laurie Soine. ASPLU president. said a special election to fill the vacant com­ ptroller position will be held Thursday. Applications for candidacy must be i to the ASPLU office by today. turned n

Campus Safety left shorthanded after budget cuts by Carl a T. Sayalll Mast reporter

Campus Safety is in a parodolcicni position this year. Their manpower has decreased and PLU's fllciliUes have expanded. That leaves Ron Garrett. Campus Safety director. with a fe..... people and a lot of ground to cover. The reason: insufficient funds. "A lot of departments in the universi­ ty got squeezed in the budget process." he said. "Megabucks have been spent uPb"l"ading buildings and on the Rieke Science Center. We got squeel;ed. We have everybody out there we can afford to have." Currently there are only two Campus Safety officers on duty during each shih. Last year there were four officers duro

ing swing shift. 4 p.m. to midnight. and three on duty the rest of the time. Despite staH shortages, Garrett said he and his crew have managed to police the area and provide priority service� like escorts and emergency assistance to students. While the shortages cause their share of problems during the day, problems in· crease at night when outgoing phone calls jam the phone lines.

..... beoii spent upgrading . buI_ and on the _ Science Center. W. got _ We ..... � out there we can afford... Ron Garrett, campus Safety DirectOf Until recently there was only one stu­ dent worker operating the phone system. That shortage created a back· up and many calls were put on hold until they could be connected.

Brad McLanc, assistant director of Campus Safety, said that Campus Safe­ ty was able to reorganize their budget and hire another operator to handle the overflow.

Computer equi pment stolen, UC burglary attempt this summer

by Carla T. Sayalli Mast reporter

Among Campus Safety's respon· sibilities is to assist the Pierce County Sheriffs Department in the investiga· tion of felony offenses on campus. Campus Safety recently collected in· formation on two incidents which occur· red over the summer. The Enst Campus Microcomputer Center was broken into over the Labor Day .....eekend, said Ron Garrett. Cam· pus Safety director.

Approlcimately $7,000 worth of (.'Om· puler equipment was stolen. The computers were on loan to PLU from various businesses, according to Brad McLane, assistant director of Campus Safety. The university 's insurance will prr>o bably cover the loss, Garretl In another incident, stolen tools from the Ramstad construction site were us· ed in an attempt to break into the University Center safe in June, Garrot.t said. The safe was not opened and nothing else was talten.

"We find when student's can't get through to an operator, they call the emergency number:' McLane said. " We tell them to call back the operator and keep the line dear for emergencies." Deciding to add another operator is one example of the kinds of choiccs Cam­ pus Safety is making n i the faee of per­ sonnellimilDtions. "'There is only so much we can do given the IImount of manpower and ser­ vices we have to provide." McLane said. Swingshift is one the busiest periods on a Campus Safety officers shift. There are buildings to inspect and lock and students who need escorts and after hours admittance n i to buildings. An officer will escort a student anywhere within the following boun· daries: north to 119th Street; south to 1\J.le Lake Road; east to Pacific Avenue; and west to L Street.

Providing escorts will remain a priori· ty serv ice regardless of the shortages, . McLane said. Other services such as patrolling park­ ing lots and walking tnrough campus at night will become lesser priorities. "We try to do it (.....alk the grounds) but we get interrupted wi�h so many things." McLane said.

Commuter increase causes parkin g lot congestion by_KathWlli! Hodland Mast reporter An abundance of students witli cars has made PLU's parking lots and neighborhood streets Overcrowded. and Campus Safety is taking steps to remedy the problem. Partial relief will arrive when the new parking lot on lower cllmpus. where h'Y Hull used to stund. is completed. This 101 will contain (I few spaces for !>'lath and Computer Science profes!iOrs, but will mostl\" be used b\" commuter student.!;.

" Never until now have I seen Olsen Lot full during the day," McLane said. McLane attributed much of the pro­ blem to the increased number of part time and graduate students this year. lie added that the number of student� with CIlTS has expanded. encouraging is Safety Campus students to get their cars registered and into the correct lots. McLane said the lot for the North

McLane said thaI he and Ron Garrett, director of Campus Safety, went out last week and ticketed approximately 400 unregistered students. He rrullarked that the tickets will be voided if the students "simply come in and register their cars. Every car should have some kind of sticker," he said. They can be picked up free of charge at the Campus Safety oHice.

S u rvey to poll attitudes on visitation by Katherine Hedlond MaSI reporler The on'going battle to change PLU's current visitation policy, which pro­ hibits members of the opposite sex to be in each others' dormitory rooms bet. . ween 2 and 8 a.m., continues. The next step in the process is a stu­ dent survey delving into the matter. The survey will be conducted by Matt Taylor. parlimentarian for ASPLU Senate and other committee members from ASPLU and RHC. I t will contain specific questions per. taining to student behavior. With it,

they hope to accomplish two things. First, they will determine if students really do want the rules changed. Taylor said that from all the informa, tion they have received.!lO far. it appears that about 75 percent of the campus supports the change. Of course, if the survey shows dif­ ferently, he said they will abandon their efforts. Student opinions tend to vary on the subject but many appear to support the change. Sophomore Lindsey Stizrud said, "I think the rules should be changed 8CI that friends of the oppo�te sell: can be

together when they want, just to study or talk." Stixrud added that it would be more i portant that roommates be con· m siderate of each other if the policy were abolished. Student Erik Runyan commented. .. ] think it should be left up to roommates whether or not they can have people in their rooms after hours." The problem of mutual respect between roommates has consistently been brought up. But, 89 Marti Denison pointed out, "The current policy isn't always a sure way to protect a roommate. Sometimes one has to be just as ASser-

tive at 2 s,m. to kick a visitor out of the room as at any other time." The survey will give more conclusive answers on student feelings toward the idea of the change. Secondly, the survey will explore what kind of activity is taking place now, and what would or would not change with a different policy. Taylor said those favoHng a change in to reasonably policy need to be prep argue against critical attacks from those who say that without the policy there

Overexpenditures, budget cuts plague ASPLU b y Kathy lawrence Mast stall reporter ASPLU was informed in Augu�t that it overspent its 1984-85 budget by $6,280, said Ty Dekofski, former ASPLU comptroller. Dekofski, who resigned his ASPLU position Monday, said he was told by the PLU administration that the overex­ penditure had to be cut from this year's budget before ASPLU could open any of its acrounts. He said ASPLU cut 5 percent from'all committee budgets and 10 percent from all accounts, except intramurals, ad· ministration and the Cave. In addition, Dekofski said grants were cut $4,000 and special projects $2,000. He said all the cuts, approximately $12,146, were put into a deferred payments account. After COV(lring the overexpenditure, Dekofski said $5,866 remains in the deferred account, serving as a genera] slush fund. He said the comptroller will then determine when the money is need· ed throughout the year. I n actuality, he said, the committees are loaning ASPLU part of their budgeted funds. He said the loans shouldn't strain any of the committees. considering 60 percent of those commit­ tees do not use all their allotted funds.

"We're just going to move money around," Dekofski said. He said that although ASPLU was told they overspent !6,28O, his records showed only a $5,300 overexpenditure.

"I am trying to find it," he said. Mary Lou Fenili, vice president of Student Life, said the university's auditors came up with the $6,280. She said ASPLU simply lost track of �r..ending.

Dekofski: 'Budgeting system in need of revision' ASPLU's budgetin g system " stinks" and needs revising, said Ty Dekofski, former ASPLU comptroner, prior to his resignation this week. "The budgeting system for ASPLU stinks," Dekofski said. He e.plained that all other univeraity budgets are based on proposals. ASPLU, he said, is simply given an allottment of money and told they can use it however they want to. Starting this semester, Dekofski said, ASPLU will put together a budget pro­ posal in the fall. He said this change in procedure win provide PLU's administration with a guideline of ASPLU's needs when they prepare the university:'s budget. "By showing them what we need. we will help change their attitude of 'We don't care what you need, this is what yo� get'," Dekofski said.

Mary Lou l-'enili, vice president of Student Life. said that the change in ASPLU's budgeting system is a positive move. She said that since ASPLU has failed to submit a budget i past years, PLU's ad· proposal n ministration was forced to simply guess at a figure by looking at past spending trends. "If ASPLU submits 8 budget pro­ posal like the rest of the university, they will have far greater input," Fenili said. "That way everybody has a chence to say what they want to do and how much money they need," She added that obviously not everybody receives what they want, but at least they have a chance to justify their programs. Dekofaki said PLU's administration thinks ASPLU does 'stupid, silly thing!' with its money.

"The overexpenditures show that ASPLU was not on top of everything," Fenili said. She added that Dekofski told her that he was not on top of things as much 8S he should have been. "He took responsibility for it,"' she said. Fenili said that since spending sum­ maries do not come out until the middle of the next month, it is easy to lose track of spending. Trent Ling, OrdaJ's ASPLU senator,' said the senate was not adequately in­ formed about financial matters last semester. "We didn't know we overspent $6,300 so obviously we weren't kept infonned," he said. Jennifer Hubbard. ASPLU vice presi­ dent, said the overexpenditure cannot be blamed on any one group. She said executives, the senate, committees and ASPLU's previous administration all played a part. Since ASPLU usually has an "ex­ tremely" large amount of money left over every year. Hubbard said, the $6,280 cut from this year's budget will not cause ASPLU any problems. Laurie Soine, ASPLU president. agreed that the cut will not have any negativc effects on ASPLU. She added that the overexpenditure was a "deflllite lesson" for ASPLU.

'Yuppie vs. Yippie' to debate student concems by Susan Eury Mast staff reporter

Today's college students may be more concerned with their GPA than with LSD, but both will be topics at next Tuesday's Jerry Rubin/Abbie Hoffman debate in Olson Auditorium. Both speakers were activists in the 1960s and members of the Chicago Seven, a group of demonstrators ar· rested for inCiting to riot during the 1968 Democratic: Presidential Conven· tion in Chicago). The two created the "Yippies" , the Youth International Party, as a way to get young peoplepolitically involved. Beginning in 1964. they participat.c<i in the anli·Vietnam war movement.

Jazz ensemble ready to blow their own horns by Jenna Abrahamson Masl reporler Depth is the word used to describe this year's University Jazz Ensemble. Director Roger Gard, along with many members of the group, stress that this is what ensures all sections are powerful. And jazz fans will be able to see if the description is accurate at Thursday's 8 p.m. concert in the UC. · "The jazz band is a strong, but young group," said bass player Liz Walczyk, "only the rhythm people have been around a while.·Lead trumpeter Darryl Abrahamson believes even this early in the year the band works well together. "We have a good groove." he said. Members are still trying to get used to oneanother's musical style.

Gard !! . .lid when new players are brought togt:ther this is "one of the big· ge�t obstades." The new personnel will have to live up to the reputation of Illst year's group. With the loss of Illst year's alto and tenor sllxophone pillyers. said Gard. there are " big shoes to fill.'" But he con· siders many of the current musicians to be " state solo quality people." The quality of the rhythm section re­ mains consistent and there is an abun· dance of strength in the horn section. Gard believes any trumpeter is capable of carrying the lead and soloing. The trombone and saxophone section each have only one returning member. Gard said he is pleased with the new talent filling out these sections. Most of these people are freshman or transfer students. "The success of last year's group set a

Flawless concert blemished by hal l by Daye Howell Mast reporter Tuesday night's guitar recital in Chris Knutzen Hall displayed the talents of Jessica Papkoff and Hilary Field - but to poor advantage. It was the 'Chris Knutzen' part that was unfortunate about the concert. The performers' chairs were placed on a piece of orange carpet facing over 200 empty chairs. But only 22 people attended the concert. The performance itself was technically excellent. The concert started with Vivaldi's Concerto in D, originally com· posed for wind and string instmmenLS. If you think you've never heard of the Conccrto in D, think again. Sesame Street had a segment where they show' cd II rose close-up (first a dewy leaf, then a petal. etc.) The center section of the composition (the Largol of the Vivaldi was the music that accompanied the rose. It's no� unusual to find out that some c1l1ssical piece that you thought yOu' d never he.!l� �u�s?ur�6e . . Camillar. In case Vivaldi isn't your thing. J. S. Bach, Beethoven, and Scott Joplin were represented during the concert as well. The unfortunate aspect was the room in which the concert was held. Even sit-

ting near the front of the hall, I felt as if the performers were lost. The constant feeling of space to the rear was very distracting. It would have been nice to have had a cup of something hot to enjoy during the concert. I found myself wishing that the concert had been in the Cave, with a murmur of quiet conversation for background. Even if the artists wouldn't have been comfortable with that. the performance could have been in the music building, or one of the small dining rooms. The music begged for a more intimate setting. The concert is not part of a planned series. Field, a member of the PLU music faculty, and Papkoff. a former music instructor at PLU. regularly per· form as a guitar duo in the Northwest. Field thought that a concert at PL U would be a good idea. Field will perform again in March. for anyone who missed Tuesday night's concert.

New film offers confusion, not comedy by MIke Holf Masl reporter One way to populariz e a movie is to advertise its funny and cute side and pass it off as a new comedy. Such is the case with Peter O'Toole's new picture, "Creator", which stars Mariel Hem· ingway and VincentSpano. When it comes to laughs "Creator" is second rate. But if you are soft:hearted or newlywed you may enjoy this pseudo­ romantic comedy. Peter OToole portrays an absent· minded professor trying to create a clone of his late wife. OToole is obvious· ly playing the same eccentric character he brought to life in another recent film "My Favorite Year'".

Several Mast headlines the past two weeks have dealt with the resignations of two ASPlU executive officers, Kevin Beggs, former programs director, and Ty Dekofski, former comptroller, For one reason or another. they decided to quit their posi­ tions before fulfilling the ful l·term they were elected and committed to serve. Both left office with criticisms of the university's ad· ministration and how they view ASPlU. Beggs said, "With the rules and regulations at PlU it is very hard to express an opinion or strive for Change." Dekofski said, "ASPlU needs to exert some power and show we have a strong student government on campus so that the administration will take us seriously." Beggs also stated, "When I took the oath of office, I felt I could

effectively take that


and achieve some

positive things for PlU and ASPLU... but it became more amd more apparent that there was a lot of opposition among the staff of Student Lile to what we wanted to do in ASPLU." If both resignees were really committed to the reasons they originally ran for office, they would have stuck it out and given their best efforts to work with staff and ad­ mini strators to bring about a student government that is powerful and well respected by its peers. Quitting in the middle of a term has only reaffirmed ad­ ministrators students

. . . and the beat goes on by Susan Eury Rock 'n' roll is here Lo SLay ' that's a fact. But there are some who have dredged up the past insults hurled at America's most popular music. It encourages rebelliousness. It glamorizes drugs and promiscuity . l t promotes satanism. But it's not so much the music that of· fends those who would protect us from the demon "Rock"; it's the lyrics. These complaints are nothing new. What is new is the threat that legisl(l. tion will be passed to censor rock music lyrics, The Parents Music Resource Center, a b'TOUP orgllniz.ed by congressional wife Tipper Gore, has largeted rock lyrics as dangerous and would like ratings placed on cerLain albums. But there's the catch . which albuftls should be rated, which left alone. and which banned altogether !for .surely that must be the next step). The leading spokesman for the defense (rock music, that isl has been Frank Zappa. While not known for his political sway, he has been one of the feV! to approach the problem logically. Zappa has presented solutions rather than excuses, reasons rather than accusations It was he who suggested placinglyrics on the outs.We of albums so parents could preview their children's pur­ chases. And the PMRC agreed. But again this presents a problem. If the PMRC is trying to shield children from what they view as offensive why would they want those very same word.!! freely available in any record store's racks. And this preview of the lyrics may induce people to buy the albums by creating a sensation.

The probl�m is not that a viable way to censor rock music cannot be found but that any way is being attempted. Nothing is ever as clear cut as it seems and rock music will never be the source of complete debauchery that some would make it out to be. Tn fact. rock music recently has been i por­ the driving force behind the most m lIInt charitable efforts of all time. U.s.A. for Africa, BandAid and the Live Aid concerts raised over 5100 million for famine relief in East Africa. The same lyrics accused of ruining children's lives are saving thousands of them. LnSl weekend's Farm Aid benefit con· certs raised millions to help the American farmer. And the trend doesn't stop there. IndividuaJ performers like Bruce Springsteen and Prince (one of the PMRC's prime targets) give tens of thousands of dollars each year to food banks and other charities. No one is for· dng them to do this, tJut they do. And no one is forcing teenagers or others to buy or listen to rock music. Anyone can turn the dial on a radio or change the channel on a television. The price one pays in a free society is the price 01 choice. There are words in the world that affend some people hut they never have to listen. The real effort should not be aimed at censoring rock music lyrics but at chan· neling the energies and resources of rock 'n' roll to beneficial ends. Parents need not fear the effect of questionable lyrics l dren's minds. on their chi What they do need to fear is that their children may grow up in a society that prohibits freedom of speech,

Lutes show class i n Dome by Clayton Cowl Mast Staff Reporter Football is only a game, but it seemed to be more than that last week as I left the vast confines of Tacoma's biggest clamshell-the Tacoma Dome, It was more than a game. It made a statement about PLU. It made a state• went of class. - .' 'AjiYon� can go to a college football game and see the big crowda, the color· ful bands and the talent on the field, Anyone can go to just about any university in the country and scan the cheerstaff. down a hot dog, some beer and add a little support to their school team. Excitement is always in the air. But not everyone can say that every time their team steps on the field. they have something to be proud of-a state­ ment of class, Class oozed from the Lute cheering section last Thursday night when PLU nailed UPS. Just a glance around the stadium was enough 1.0 convince me who came wil.h class. PLU signs were all positive. while UPS concentrated on buildingegos by negative moronity. Actions speak louder than words, and Lute actions were heard in the cheering sections the entire evening. Sure, it's easy to cheer when your l e. but it's team wins by n country mi sometimes just as hard to be a good winnner as it is a good lOSEr, Cheerleading was approached in a spirited, but professional manner and the team . . . well. that .!!pcaks for itself.

As PLU players knelt-in prayer after the final gun sounded, a tingling feeling of pride worked its way up my spine. There, after dispatching one of the top grid powers in the Northwest, PLU payers were thanking the one who made it all possible. It was a humbling experience.

PLU was a winner because they had 5,000 players on· their side. Everyone is a part of.. the yictory. The Lutes shin� with a certain class that leaves people on the outside in awe. When the football squad thunders out onto the field on crisp autumn Saturday afternoons and evenings, Lutes can stand up and shout. They'll be yelling for a stdtement of class in action.

Students seek academic quality and reputation by Krist! Thorndike Mast projects editor Students consider many fllCLorS when selecting a university, James Van Beek, Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid SIlid.

The mos'. often expressed reason students choose PLU is its academic quality and reputation he SIlid. '" wanted the academics to be more personal.iud," said Lynnette Shaw, PLU senior who transferred from Wcst.ern Washington University two ycnrs ago.

'" wanted to do more writing and not just take comput.eri:r.ed tests," she said. "\'U know I·ve learned something when I get out of here IPLlJ)," Cothy Walters, junior. who spent a year at the University of Hawaii. ' · V of H is a joke of a school," she said, "It (Hawaii) has a high illiteracy rate and they (V of H) sort of compensate for it." "Here you have to deserve the grade to b'Ct it.. At the U of H you didn't have to work for the classes," Walters said, Many students also said they think PLU is academically more challenging and more studying is needed than at some state schools. PLU junior Craig Forstrom, formerly a University of WashingtOn student said, "People here are more into their studies than at the U, It seerns like stu­ dying comes before everything else here:· "I knew I'd have to .atlldy a lot more here," Forstrom said, "Up at the U. I probably studied 4 hours a week." Beth Brown, PLU junior and former Seattle Pacific University and San Hose State student, said "Academically I think PLU is tougher. Classes are more difficult compared to the state schools," Four months ago in an article in the Los Angeles Times UCLA seniors com­ plained that their school prides itseJ[ on being among the top five universities in the nation but they nre not forced to think or write. They said that most classes were large and impersonaJ and that the professors seemed far more in­ terested in resenrch than teaching undergraduates. At PLU 85 to 90 pt'rcent of the students are studying: at the undergraduate leveJ said Van Beek. This is where the main focus is, he said.

"A typical experience" at. UCLA said SIO.'ati Adarkar. a senior honor student. "is that you sit passively n i a lecture hall with 400 students. You take notes for 10 weeks. have two multichoice ex' ams and get a final grade. "You are not forced to think. You don't have to write, and you don't discuss anything or question the professor-all the things you would ex­ pect to do in a college," said Adarkar, Jill Jones. VCLA senior. said in her first two years her smallest class "had about 100 students, The largest had about. 500. In fact, most. of them were near 500." At PLU the average class siU! is bet­ ween 12, 29 Van Beek said, "Student. body lJU:.e should mean more personal contact with fellow students. not just professors," Van Beek said. PLU students say the student body siM! was an important fact.« in choosing this institution, Van Beek said. This year enrollment is almost 3,700. Forstrom said he came here for the broadcasting: department, "I didn't get any hands-on experience at the U.(of WI, Here it's a lot smaller, not so com­ petitive," Forstrom said. Academic programs piay an impor­ tar.t roll in students' college se1ection Van Beek said. PLU offers 42 majora and 38 minors, "I feel like I'm getting a good liberal arts education," Deniee Suuc. a juruor from Eagle River, Alaska, said, "I feel really good about graduating from here." _ ... � Freshman James Elwyn from Salt Lake City. Utah. said that "out or all the schools I viaited. PLU was the most hospitable and friendly. "There is a lot of spiritual life here." Elwy�, said. PLU makes "you feel at home. Recommendations from parents, pastors, alumni and friends also in' f1uences students' decision to attend PLU Van Beek said. Rick Broha,,!gh. freshman from Orin' da, California. said that he was looking for a small Christian school when hun' ting for a college, "! wanted to get away from Cillifor· nia, from school, from my parents. , . I wanted a new start. "My parents encouraged me t.o come here, They supported my decision." he

Brown said, "The students t:lr'e are nicer than at other schoola.

" We didn't have as much interaction with the guys in the donna (at SPU) as we do here. Our IPLU's) football players are real cuties." Brown said. "One thing that really impressed me was at convocation my first year when Rieke said that he and his wife would personally visit the dorms," Shaw said, "At Western I didn't even know who the president was, let. alone get to meet him. I feel like 90mething special," she sai.d.

Of the five students n i terviewed. most agreed that fLU's dorms aT(! social enough lind thllt there is usually something to do. But there are also other things to b'i!t involved with at PLU. they said. "Your social life is what you make out of it at PLU.·· silid Jeff Rock. a senior ilL Washington State University. Rock spent two yellfs at PLU. living both years in Pflueger Hall. He is cur· rently living in a frllternity. Alpha Gam· ma Rho. Friendliness is one aspect that stands out at. PLU. according La sophomore Robert Corliss. Corliss spent last year in Terry Hall, an l I ·story residence hall at the Univer· sity of Washington. before transferring to PLU. He currently lives in Pflueger HaU. "'t's probably more open here. people are friendlier. where as up at the"U" it's morelike a smaUcity." he said. "' like it here better. but I just like to shoot hoops. go watch the game and kick back." �aid Corliss. He said PLU offers a more casual and laid·back lif{'style. one that appeals to him.

Rules and regulations "It's easier at PLU to he your own person because of the regulations," said !jHnior Mark Esteh. who spent part of

his freshman year in the Alpha Tau Omega House. a fraternity at Washington State University. Regulations against ('xcess noise. and on-eampus use of alcohol keep students from denying others their individulIl rights. slIid Esteb. who has lived the past two years in Alpine Hall. "If you didn't have the regulations over alcohol and noise, these dorms would be like any other." he said. " Peo­ pie respect other people's individual rights here more. whereas there was more pressure to comply La other peo­ ple's norms at WSU, " "The alcohol restriction takes the peer pressure off freshman. At Wazoo it was kind of Iikc drink or clse." sliid Est!!". PLU's regulations may keep campus life calm. but after spending time in dorms and fraternities at other schools. most of the students interviewed found that most of the rules and regulations arc not adhered to very strictly. "Truthfully, with the rules you can get around them if you want La. I wasn't against them. because I knew I could get around them if , wanted, so they didn't affect me too much," said Rock. "I don't think they were too bad. a little strict, but they did keep you from get· ting too carried away. " Corliss agreed that PLU's restrictions "have a part here. but you and I know that if I want to have a few beers in my room I'll have some. If you want to get away with �mething you can."


Students also agt'eed that the regula· tions and general lifestyle at PLU tend to keep partying tem� as compared to other schools. However, they also agreed that alcohol and parties arc definitely available here. on campus and


"When I look back to second west (a wing in Pflueger HaUl. that was a big party." said Rock of his two years at PLU. "I don't think it was that different than here in a frat. it's just that it was il· legal over there. so you had to try not to get caught or go off campus." Rock noted. however. that dorm life at PLU doesn't necessarily have to be "a big party." "In the dorms. if you're not into the party scene, it's not something you have

La do. You have to seek it out. The op· tion is there." said Hock. Corliss said PLU seems like much less of a party school than the UW. but he said he's "seen just as big messes in the dorms down here liS I ever did at the ·U·. ..

Good and bad points Like any college, PLU has its pre> blems, but most of the students inter· viewed were able to find a few aspects of PLU's campus lifeto praise. "PLU has a good program for in· itiating freshman into the dorms." noted Lisa Sigurdson, a fifth'year

She transferred to PLU after two years at Waldorf College in Forest City. Iowa. "The initiation program is really fun and positive. It makes the freshmen feel welcome." she said. "�lost friendships are made in the dorms. which is really good." Rock said he liked the individuality of dorm life compared to life in a fraternity. "It's not like a functional unit. like a frat. If you wanted todo something. you did it:' he s<tid. "It didn't matter so much what everyone else thought. When you're part of a unit of 55 guys. there are things you just should do. like attend functions and help keep the place up," "It's more dog eat dog up there. more intense: said Corliss of the UW. . . It·s more homey here. more relaxed." . . At PLU you have more of the sheltered. everybody help everybody idealist world." sllid Jeff Peterson.

Approval for the project was given in April. In the week and a half after graduation. the coffee shop shed its 15 years as a "coffee and grill" and put on the mantle of a Yuppie deli and salad bar. The 563 thousand remodeling cost may seem steep. but change was long overdue. Bob Torrens admitted "I never did like how it was built. too much red. Complaints about the room's design went beyond just the color.

The wall divisions weren't conducive to conversation and the bussing station was awkwardly located. lt·s desigu was 10 years behind many school's coffeeshops. Most included a deli sandwich counter and salad bar. Now. in addition to servo ing the PLU community as a refreshing place to eat and study. it. hosts banquets. Since its completion in June. the cof· fee shop has housed four banquets and a wedding re<:eption. Such after·hours use was previously impoSSible.

Demolition work has begun on the In· gram Hall remodeling project. which will become the new home for the Com· munication Arts department. T e remodeling will take place in .the se<:tlOn of the building located on the corner of I and 121st streets. It was formerly occupied by the School of Nursing which has since been moved to Ramstad Hall. The Comm Arts department is presently located in Blomquist House. The space will be utilized in the follow· ing ways: two classrooms devoted to journalism. offices. a debate room. a lounge, and storage areas. Also being constructed are a perfor. mance video studio and an art gallery. The old gallery will be used as a student art gallery. Dean Graduate and Sum· mer Studies. who is involved in art in· terests. will also move into Ingram Hall from the Administration Bui l ding. The rerr.odeling project requires rewir· ing, changes in me<:hanical systems, new lighting, and new floor-covering. The en· tire effort is budgeLed at approximately 5325.000. said Jim Phillips. director of the Physical Plant. Another remodeling projoct is ill the planning stage. A third floor will be add· ed to the Library. The structure. built in 1967. was designed to accommodate three floors. The foundation is strong enough and only slight modifications on the cle<:· trical system and elevator will need to be made. Those will mainly to deal with changes in construction methods and materials since 1967. According to Phillips. the construc· tion poses one interesting problem; car­ rying on work quietly while the library remains open. To relieve this somewhat, it is hoped that the roof and wall work will be accomplished during the summer or 1986 or 1987. The entire proje<:t will take eleven to fifteen months to complete. One other proje<:t is in its final plann. ing stages. The Computer Center was

Taylor says he feels more positive about the situation with the more people he talks to. Some of the staff that he has spoken with seem to have been helpful. Whi le Mary Lou Fennelli. Vice-President for Student Life, does have to support the rules whieh are set by the University. .she has admit.ted to Taylor that she feels the policy is ineffe<:tive. Taylor is waiting for official letters from Lauralre Hagen. dire<:tor of Residental Life. and Jan Maul·Smith. coordinator of Student Housing. Although he said that though they both support the policy as it stands now. they seemed open to a trial period with a different system. Of the administration. Taylor said. "They haven't shut any doors on us yet and try to be as positive as they can." Taylor realizes that the changes would affect more that just visitation policy. It would change the roles of RAs and others but he feels they are changes aU students and faculty could handle.

Men booters minus scorers fall to U PS, 3-2

by Mike Condardo

Mast sports editor The PLU men's soccer squad played host to the University of PugeL Sound Wednesday, and the Logger's were very rude guests handing ! �e Lutes a 3-2 defeat. The first half saw very little scoring with the only goal coming lute in the period when Logger Matt Smith beat the PL U defense for the first tally of the game. The Logger's scored at the opening of the second·half to go up 2·0. but the Lutes answered back with a score by Andy Johnson on a penalty kick to close the margin to 2-1. Another Logger goal upped the score to 3-1, but the Lutes were not finished yet. Another J>f'nulty kick, this time from S\'end I.cirvaag closed the margin to 3·2. but time ran out on the Lutes, sending their season record to 6-3, "We were missing by only a fraction of a step."' said head coach Jim Dunn. "We had posession and ran play most of the game, but doing that doesn't meun you're going to win. , . The Lutes oULshot the Loggers 20-10, but it was the inability to put those shots into the goal that lead to the Lutes fall. The Lutes were also without the ser­ vices of their leading goal scorers: Kevin Iverson, Anie i\l assaglia, (lnd Kevin Martin, Dunn didn't want to use that as an excuse though, "We gave them some incentive by giv­ ing them the first goal:' said Dunn. "We've beat them two straight and that , has given them some motivation. . The Lutes beat UPS n i the opening game of this year's series 3·2 with Mark Ambucher hitting the winner in the 85th

minute. In the seeond game, Iverson hit all three goals as the Lutes roileD to a 3·0 shutout. The Lutes were coming off a second· place finish at the Redwood City Tour· nament in Arcata, California. which the were handed only their second loss of the season, a 2·1 loss in the champion' ship game to host Humboldt State. in the Arcata tourney, the Lutes won their opener 1.0 over Sonoma State with Tor Brattvag picking up the goal. In the loss to Humboldt State, Kevin Martin picked up the lonegoal for the Lutes, The Lutes have eight starters back from last year's team which finished 9·4·3, who were knocked out of the 1985 district playoffs in triple-overtime to the 1983 national champion Simon Fraser. Dunn, who WIlS selected as the NAIA District 1 soccer Coach of the Year in his first season. has built around an all-star goalkeeper in Rose and a talented collec· tion of midfielders. Rose, who earned aU·league honors und had a 1.33 goal yield per game last season, has recorded four shutouts already in 1985. matching his total season performance of 19d4. The Lutes have a strong midfield led by Iverson, who was selected aU·league and aU·district in 1984, will try to beller his 12 goals and 8 assist performnce of last season. Other Lutes in the midfield will in· clude seniors Svend Leirvaag and Marty Ambacher, junior Ed Brown. and frosh DlIve Sorenson. At forward, PLU have juniors Artie Massaglia and Mike Keene. along with sophomores Kevin Martin and Tim Steen, and frosh forward Bill Rink. The Lutes next action will be tomor·

row afternoon against the PLU Alumni starting at 2 p.m.

Women's soccer team has young,

prepared squad

by r:red r:itch Mast reporter The PLU women's soccer team is abun· dant with new faces this year as nine of the 17 players are freshman. Only one senior is on tnis year's squad. The Lutes got off to an early start, reporting on August 25. The team reported early to prepare for the Santa Clnra tournament. "Reporting early ended up being a real plus for us," said coach Coleen Hacker. "It gave the team a chance to come together as a group. The Leam got to know each other off the field as well as on the field." "Returning players ha'le come back in the best physical condition that we've ever had," said Ibcker. This year's captains are senior mid· fielder Pam Semrau and junior goalkeeper Knthleen Ryan. Ryan earned aU.league and all·district recognition last year.

Maria Stevens show some laney lootwoni: against a Seattle UnlvBfSlty delender.

Junior Stacy Waterworth. sophomore Beth Louthain, and freshman Sonya Brandt make up the forward line. Brandt is Oregon's aU·time leading prep scorer. She was a two time high school all·american. Sophomore Ruth Frobe was the team's leading scorer last year, Frobe changed postitions to sweeper, "She has been outstanding," Backe said of Frobe. "She has been defensive leader in three of our first five games. She has been one of the most imprO\·ed players on the team." Junior Sandy McKay is the central midfielder, She has never playoo there before. "She has been really controlling the tempo of the game, " said Hacker of McKay. The Lutes started the season by tra,'elling to San Francisco to par­ ticipate in the Santa Clam tournament. In the first game of the tournament the Lutes lost to Westmont 5·3. The LULes fell behind 3·]. but came bUl·k to tie the seore Ht 3·3 before giving up t.wo gemls in the last ten minutes. The Lutes took on NC,\A OJ''jsion I

Santa Clara in the next game of the tour· nament and lost 2.0. In the same day the Lutes faced the defending N A J A na· tional champion St. Mary's and lost again 2"(). "We enjoyed getting toplfly the tough competition," said Hacker, "It was also exciting to gel to spend. a week in Sun Fr&ncisco.'· Brandt and goalkeeper Gail Stenzel were both selected on the tournamnet ali'Slar team. Brandt and Stenzel are both freshmen. As a team the Lutes brought home the Sportsmanship Award. PLU was cited in the six teum LOurnamenL for good sportsmanship and inspiration. "Nothing could make us prouder:' said Hacker. "The uward reflects the PLU spirit." The team came back from the tourna· ment and beat the alumni 4·1. " It was exciting LO bring back some of the old players," l>uid Hacker. "We had a good opportunity to work on passing and ball control." Last Friday the Universitiy of Porland fell victim to the LutC5 1·0. Brandt scored early in the second half of an assist from Waterworth for the only goal.

Lady Lutes beat Seattle U., 4·0 by �red ;-I!ch Mast reporter The Lady Lutes picked up another vic· tory Wednesday, a 4-0 victory over Seattle University. "it was a beautifully plfl)'ed game," said head coach Colleen Backer. "(Paml Semrau and !Ruthl Frobe played an outstanding game. We played good, quality soccer." Semrau. SonYII Brandt, Beth Louthain. und Stacy Waterworth scored gools for the Lutcs. Today th(· Lutes tTnvel to Pacific. Tomorrow the Lult's will " cnture to �ld\l jnn\'ille to play Linfield.

VB squad equals mark of previous season by Mike Condardo Mast sports editor The Lady Lutes volleyball squad have already turned things around in 1985, a whole 180 degrees from th{'ir perfor· mance last S{'ason. The Lutes finished with a 4·24 mark last S{'ason. and after three outings in 1985. PLU has a record of 4·5. In their last match at the University of Puget Sound, the Lutes dropped three straight games to the Loggers on their home court 1'uesday night: 15·7. 15·4. and 15·3.

In the first game. Lute Dana Hinman opened the game by serving the Lutes to a HI lead, but the Loggers bounced right back with four quick points to go up 4·3 and never looked back. Game two saw the Loggers open up an early 7. () lead which was never threaten· ed in the Lutes 15,4 loss. But in game three, the Lutes were determined and willing.

After UPS jumped out to a 6·1 lead. backed by the servin$' of Hinman and

Candi Hall. the Lutes w{'re back in at 6·3. But the Loggers snuffed the threat by reeling off nine straight points to

take the game and the match.

Last weekend the Lutes won their opening match of the season a 15·9, 15·12, 15·8 sweep of Linfield at McMinn· ville, Oregon. The Lutes dropped their next match the following day at Willamette: 8·15, 14·16, 15·12. and 15·12. The Lutes receiverl oust.anding play from Sharon Schmitt, who scored 10 points in one game for the Lutes last weekend. "We played errorless ball ot Linfield," said assist.ant coach Carolyn Fuller.

"We only misseJ three S{'rves all night and passed welL" "After winning the first two games at Willamette." said Fuller, "our defense

Gonzaga third with 121, and Whitman fourth with 132. "It's highs like this that make you able to handle school," Nichols said.

"Aren't you a small. private school?" two University of Idaho�upporters ask· ed in disbelief when the Lute men's and women's crosso(:ountry teams placed first and second at the Whitman Invita· tional in Walla Walla last weekend. PLU runners Val Hilden. Kathy Nichols. and Melanie Venekamp took an aggressive lead early in the women's 5 !tm race to finish 1st, 3rd. and 4th


"We don't often win crosso(:ountry meets," Coach Brad Moore said. To challange the abilities of his runners, Moore said he selects meets with a high level of competition. "It's rewarding to go to a meet with runners on scholar· ships and place as well or better." Moore said.

score of 88. placed second to Washington State University's 33. The University of Idaho placed 3rd. EWU placed 4th, and CWU 5th. "It's nice to beat a team like Eastcrn so early in the season," said Dave Hale. team captain. The top five runners from PLU placed

within 45 seconds of each otiter, from Cole's time of 26:05 to fifth place finisher John Flatibo, 26:47. Moore predicts that this ratio win continue to decrease as runners who got a late start training move up and challenge the leaders. Two of the top five runners for the men's team were freshman. Placing third alld fourth for the Lutes were Alan Giesen and Ken Gardner. two freshman with strong high school crosso(:ountry backgrounds. "This is the strongest group of

freshmen men we've had since I've heel' here," Moore sa:d. "I'm not surprised to see

them up there."

doesn't matter who is favored. We just go out and challenge the excellence within ourselves," The Lutes dobbered Puget Sound last week. but not without outstanding play by the young, untested front line. The offensive line will have to stand up to a relentless Wdlamette defenSive that In -eludes one al;·American, "It was a tremendous motivator to see how well the offensive line did out there:' grinned Westering. "They just had an excellent gllme with pass· blocking and trapping." Lute quarterback Jeff Yarnell had am· pIe time last week to throw as he w<!nt 8·(or-1 6 passing last week and piled up 102 yards, mostly to ends Jeff Gates Uour receptions for 61 yardsl and Steve Welch Itwo grabs for 25 yards). The Lute backfield looks healthly this week as All-American runningback Mike Vindivich comes off a 139·yard rushing barrage on 15 carries and Jud Kiem returns with 68-yard performance


last week, including 28·yard touchdown sprint. Westering complimented the fine kicking performance of Mark Focge, a senior from BelJarmine of Tacoma. Focge boomed tnree kickoffs into the end zone. while also splitting the uprights with four extra points. Defensively. the Lutes are ready. With returning t.alent in nearly every spot, Pacific Lutheran seems ready to shut down the balanced Willamette attack. "The paradox of top-level competiton is when you just try tOO hard," said Westering. "Trying too hard keeps you from doing what you ""ant to do in a game situation. You lose your rhythm and momentum, " When PLU steps on the field in Salem this weekend, thoughts won't be on [ast week's drubbing of UPS, on powerhouse Linfield or even on Willamette. l t will be a game of concentration on the enemy themselves.

"I'd thought about runnmg mlllally .....hen Ty resigned, but Rick Dujmov, a good friend of .mine, wa!!! running, " Taylor said. "so I decided to keep my name offthe ballot." Taylor aaid his decision to campaign was based on Dujmov's withdrawl from th., comptroller race. Hill decision was, finalited around midrught Wednesday ni�ht. " I feel I'll be competent in the position," said Shaw, "For the last !leven months I've been researching the budget. Right now there are a lot of inside problems that students may not know about," she said. Shaw said her decision to run for com· ptroller was made "as a political state­ ment to let the admirustration know there is a student whO'll willing to ques· tion the system and the process of how we gel our money and how it's handled."

Anti Apartheid Day to coordinate protests by Emily Morgan Mast reporter

A nation-wide Campus Anti Apar­ theid Protcst Day has been designated by the American Committee on Africa forOctober I I . 1985. i being organi.zed by At PLU the rally s Phyllis Lane, director of Minority Student Programs, and Pastor Ron TeUef90n of Campus Ministries. The purpose of the rally, Lane said, is to protest the discrimination policies of South Africa with other campuses throughout the nation. This summer Lane went to Nairobi, Kenya to attend Forum 85, an int.enla· tionaJ conference on South Africa. Lane said that while there she met some black women from Africa that asked her to tell

Americans their government shouldn't support apartheid in South Africa. Lane said she didn't know if these women are alive today or imprisoned, but added that "Yes, we do have a global r.esponsibility here at PLU, and we can't turn away from it any longer." In response to increased unrest in South Africa, the American Committee on Africa has recommended severaJ ac­ tivities for October 11, 1985 as an avenue of protest. Students and faculty are encouraged to wear a black arm band 'to show solidarity. The ann bands will be distributed that day. The 10 a.m. chapel service will focus on peace and justice as it relates to South Africa. Information about South Africa will be distributed 8S well 85 petitions to de­ mand the release of Nelson Mandela,

leader of the African National Con­ ference, an outlawed black resistance group. Mandcla was sentenced to life im­ prisonment 23 years ago for treason and sabotage. The petition will also call for the release of students arrested for leading demonstrations at their schools, and other political prisoners. Observers of this day are also asked to write their Congressmen and other government officials to demand disinvestment of South Africa. (Current­ ly there are about 300 U.S. companies in South Africa with a total investment of some $2.5 billion dollars.) Apartheid is employed by the white ruling class of South Africa to keep its black population from sharing govern­ ment powCJ", wealth, OJ' education with the whites.

The black.'1 of South Africa make up 71 percent of its total population and through a recent "homelands" program, have been transported from their homes to live on 13 percent of the nation's more desolate lands. These "homelands" are called "states" by thegovemment. Apartheid also takes the form of segregated toilets, workplace cafeterias, and railroad coaches. Passbooks are required for blacks to enter the cities to work during the day. Defense spending to protect apartheid has - inCl'6ll5ed by 800 percent in the past decade up to $2.15 billion dollars. Some experts have estimated t t ry s count the apartheid, without economy could grow at a 12 percent an­ nual rate rather than the 2.S percent rate of the past decade.

New UC art causes shock, controversy among students, staff 'Sunday Morning' loaned to PLU after Tacoma Museum exhibition by Miriam Baeon Mast reporter

When Bob Torrens, food service direc­ tor, talked to the art department last spring about displaying some art in the University Center, he got what he ex· pected - and a whole lot more. He expected pictures or paintings. He got the painting, but it came on an approximateJy 18 x 15 foot piece of sculpture. The first introduction Torrens got to the new art was when he saw the scar. folding being brought in by a maintenance crew. Torrens wanted some art to cover up some of the white wall on the west end of the dining room above the windows, but the art piece ended up being displayed high on the waU on the cast end of the dining room. "The immediate reaction was that I spent food service money on it," Torrens said. He did not. The sculpture painting is on loan from the artist. Barbara Minas. Minas is an assistant an professor at PLU. '"How much did it cost'?" Bruce Usndel!. II senior asked when he first


"'How long has it been up there'?" was the que�tion many students asked when they camE' to dinner that Monday night last week. The piece had not been up long. only a few hour� when student�

first noticed it. "I thi nk it was a shock" for students to see. Torrens said. " 1 think it d!)ec'j add

something to the dining room" "Sunday Morning" was exhibited last

May in the Tacoma Art Museum's UniversitylCoUage Arts Faculty exhibition.

Sunday Morning is in the shape of a

big cross surrounded by things that noated upon the beach at Commence­ ment Bay. Minus said. Things thrown out by factories or industries. Things "yuppies throw away" that arc not old but just cast off. . , I'm interested in reOecting culture as I see it today," Minas said. Sunday Mar· ning is not "ba�l!d on th{' pasC' but is :"1inus' perception of the current interest in Christianity. the corporute industry. und Tacoma. "Sunday Morning is II piece of

religious art. It ill an altar screen made to express a deep spiritual aearch through the mire of our times" wrote Warren Wotton of the TacomaNews Tribune in a review of this three­ dimensional piece. The entire review is posted under tbepiece in the U.C. It's a seasonal piece of winter and winter COIOfS 85 Minu 800S at Com­ mencementBay. The painting lICulpture breaks down to severaJ sections. Mina! worked on each section by benel!' She did not lIDC it together until it waa displayed at tbe Tacoma Arts Museum. "It was really exciting for me. I had only seen it insections, Minas said. Student response was not positive. "That is not an appropriate art piece to be displayed in an eating area," said Junior Ken Ryals. Another student compared the work to that of s child. "If I had a kid who was six years old Ihel could probably do it with no instructions needed. " saio a senior in the art department. "'This does nothing for me," he said.

"I eXp<'Ct a lot of controversy." Minas said. "I don't eXp<'Ct people to like it Ilt first. " It makes her nervous when people in· stantly like her work she said. "I'm hop· ing they 'U (justl respond to it." she said.

Students should "stop worrying if they like it and start looking at it." Minas said. SU:1day Morning was created last in· terim. Minas worked on it during after· noons, nights and on weekends. She works in an unlighted mini·storage warehouse. The cost is extremely irrelevant," Minas said. "Not one penny" was fund­ ed by PLU and " an is really expensive," she said. A group of people "active in art wanted it displayed on campus," she said. They were looking for a place to display it when Torrens requested some art for the U.C. Minas hsd nothing to do the the resulting negotiations. She said she hopes it will be up for most of the year. Don't be surprised if you come to like it. .. Art tends to b'TOW on you." she sliid.

''I'm the other one." Hoffman said. ''I'm 48. 1 got taxes. three ki ds. I got hemorrhoids and all the hangups that go along with middle age life i n America, but I'm still out there doing it and I stil! believe in the power of the people." Hoffman said the debate was about growing old. priorities and values. "'It's about a strategy of social change. It's a debate that goes on n i every people," he said. Hoffman criticized Rubin's Yuppie movement as a "mythicaJ creation. A lifestyle created by the media to sell Mercedes and Rolexes (watchos)." "For every entrepreneur driving around in a Porsche, c85hing in on the stock market out there, there are three single mothers with kids sucking the glue off food stamps," he said. People do more than choose a presi­ dent every four years, Hoffman said. Politic� '·is a very personal experience. Politics happens every single day of our lives.

While ex�laining the Yuppiedesire for responsibility for their own octions, a group of protestors interrupted Rubin He pointed a finger at the group snd said, "You approach results inthat kind of opposition." Following their remarks, ?LU guest panelists Ed Clausen nnd Jack Birm· ingham, history professors, and Kathleen O'Connor, sociology professor, asked each speaker questions ranging from the definition of feminism to the personal changes each has undergone since the 60s, PLU student and lecture chairman Bruce Deal said the committee decided on the Rubin-Hoffman debate last year. "We thought it would be a good one because it had both elements, the liberal , and the conservative. .

by Carla T. Savalll Masl stall reporter

If felony charges against two Tacoma adult bookstores come to trial in Pierce County Superior Court. ' the cases will become the first to test Washington state 's obscenity law. Employees of Sportland Amusement. 13022 Pacific Avenue. and Show World. 9] \5 South Tacoma Way. were arrested July 17 and charged with promllting pornography after sheriffs deputies seized '·Iewd·· magazines and video tapes frern, the two stores. Trial dates have been set for the cases. bUI defense atlurneys will likely seck dismissals at preliminary hearings scheduled in October. The obscenity law. passed by the Washington Stale Legislature in 1982. has never been challenboe(l in the state court system, but has been heard in Federal Court and the United States SupremeCnurt. After the law was passed. several Inwsuits were instantly filed claiming that several aspects of the statute were unconstitutional because the First Amendment prOtects freedom of speech. The Federal District court in Spokane upheld the statute in 1982, claiming the obscenit}' law \Oo'as constitutional because ob!ICenity is nOI a protected form of speech. After that decision, continued con· troversy over Washin�:"1.on·s ob!ICenity law focused on the definition of " prurient-" Prurient is defined as ,. that which in· cite!l lasciviousness or lust." I n 1984 the 9th Circuit Court of Ap' peals in San Franci!ICO ruled that the definition of prurient in the Jaw was too broad because it included the word " Iust:'

Defense attorney for the Sportland Amusement case, Victor Hoff of Seattle. sa id that the word lust '"made thedefini· tion too broad because it implied an ap· peal to a normal. healthy everydlty in· terr'st in sex and was not limited to a shameful. morbid interest in sex:' That decision was appealed to the United States Supreme Court wruch decided this year that the definition was too brood, but that the 9th Circuit Courl of Appeals was wrong when it in· validated the entire statute. The law was bounced back to the 9�h Circuit Court which has issued no new decision on the word ··Iust."

Obscatitu is defined as DIIIIhintJ I the aoeroge would ruuJ m 00 appeoI to (tJraJ uJUdz in­ cilf!!l lmcit:iousnt'Sll or bJsI)


Supreme Court William Brennan


Pierce County Superior court is IIble to try the cases because it was not nom' ed in an enjoining order prohibiting King County, Spokane County. Yakima County and the attorney general of Washington from prosecuting anyone under the obscenity law until the 9th Circuit Court decides on the "'lust" definition. The primary issue in these cases is whether the material sold at the bookstores is obscene as defined by the United States Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has said obscene ex, pressions are not protO?Cted by Ihe First Amendment.

as unything- that the aVl!raj,(e pt'rson. tip' plying "contemporary community stan· dards:' would find as lin appeal to prurient interests. Deputy prosecutor for the Spo�t1and Amusement case, Ed Murphy, said the Roth v. U.S. case was "'a landmark deci· sian and all the cnses since have sprung from that." "'It·s a very compiicated IIrea because there lire !lOme �irst Amendment , . aspects to It, We re 1M an area that no one has worked with as far as the statute," Murphy said. Bec:ause of the . compICltit� of both . cases , Murphy said he antICipates the final decisions will be challenged · 'all the way up the courts." Defense attorney Hoff said he will move for dismissal of the Sportland , Amusement case when It comes before Pierce County Superior Court Judge Waldo F. Stone at a preliminary hearing Oct. 16. Hoff said the search warrant sheriff's deputies used to enter the store was im· properly presented and did nol meet constitutional requirement that states the warrant must describe the person or persons being searched and the articles to be sei:ted, . Hoff said the warrant only " specified one publication:' "Chains and Whips:' and contained general information that sheriff's deputies used to · ·embark on a massive seizure. They took everything they wllnted: ' Hoff said. Hoff said he will also argue the legali. ty of a last·minute emergency clause the Washington State Legislature tacked on to the law before ratifying it. Under the Washington state constitu· tion. all laws passed by the legislature are subject to referendum (direct popular vote) by the peo �le. .

The constiluli"l! OlltLlnes two excep· . tions to the clause, neither of wh'ch ai'"

plies to the obscenity law. HoH said. If a lnw is nC(:essary to support the state government or existing insUtu· tions, a public vote can be bypassed. Th� same is true if a law is necessary for immediate preservation of public wl'lfare. It is trus exception legislators claimed when they ratified the ob!ICenity law without a public vote. Hoff said the trurd reason for his dismissal motion would be whether the law is constitutional under Washington state's frccspeech provision. "'There are more protections for citizens in our provision:' he said. "Our Istate) Supreme Court will have to decide that:' The original preliminary hearing was scheduled for Sept. 25 but the prosecuting attorney's orfice asked that a new hearing be set for Oct. 16 beclluse the arresting officers could not be in court. Murphy said the Show World case in· volves the some issues but will be tried before Pierce County Superior Court Judge Nile E. Aubrey in December.

Pom case reaches court Preliminary hearings for Sportland Amusement manager Byron Reece. 4\, and employee Terry Styers, 44. are set for Oct. 16 in Judge Waldo F. Stone's chambers in Pierce County Superior Court. Should that case go to trial, it will be heard by Stone on Feb. 3, 1986. Jesus Longoria, 42. manager of Show World. and employees John Pate. 20. and Daniel Mum, 29, are scheduled to appear in a preliminary hearing Oct. 29 before Judge Nile E. Aubrey and in court Dec. 2.

The Parkland Theater, an area eSlablishment and haunt for PLll students since the 1950s. has a new look this year both on the screen and in the lobby. Major improvements in style and ser' vice were made over the 5ummer. accor' ding t..o Theater House Manager Rich Palamidess. These changes include stronger efforts to discipline patrons. new furnishings and a selection of newer films. The Pacific Avenue theater was becoming a kid's hangout, said Palamidess. and the management wanted the moviehouse t..o appeal to all people. He said last winter problems with school·age children were especially bad. But a new policy system hBS curbed much of thl! unruly behavior. Smoking is no longer allo.....ed inside the theater partly due to a recent Pierce County ordinance prohibiting smoking in public places. On weekends a sheriffs deputy is stationed outside the bolt office LO deal with Unruly or disrespectful people on the premises. Woody Long. the theater's assistant manager said that the community children just need II plllce togo. "We'd like to have them here, but you must put your foot down," he said. Providing a smoking area outside the building has helped La keep people hap· py, said Long. Paiamidess hopes La "clean up" the house. The lobby has heen redecorated already and a new set of chairs will be in· stalled shortly. He recalls the " 1950 's" furnishings in the theater when he was employed three

years ago and thinks II more modern look will uplift the theater's atmosphere. Slar Cir.emas. a small local chain of moviehouses, now owns the Parkland Theater. As one of three theaters in the chain, the Parkland is able to acquire more recent films at bargain prices. "We're still a second·run house," said Palamidess. But the new owners have made a prac· tice of renting films as soon as they are available at a reasonable price. In turn. a lot of people wait just a little longer to see a movie and can save a little mone)'. he said. For each evening, or 99 cents dur­ ing the afternoon. patrons may view a double feature. "E.T., the Extra Ter· restrial" and "D.A.H.Y.L:· are current­ ly showing at the Parkland. Movies are screenro at the theater us long as attendance remains steady and the decision La change rilms may not be made until a few days \)cfore lh(' picture' arrives. With the acquisition of better films. Palamidess is hoping to attract more PLU students. "We're counting on that." he said. "especially !,e('ause the theater hus UPb'Taded its appearance." The manager said PLU students usually attend the Parkland on SundaY5. "It really depends on what we're play. ing.·· he said. Although the Parkland area has undergo!!e major changes in the past 30 years, the spirit of the lheatl!!' still reminds o!!e of the people who attended Saturday matinees for 10 cents. And both managers hop(! it remains II place for families and other communitv . members to enjoy II good movie.

_The Mast, �ober4, 1965

Viewpoints Editorial The "Yipple vs. Yuppie" debate Tuesday night was more of a hindsight look at student activism in the 60s than a discussion about what colleges In the 80s have to say about the world. Nonetheless, the event raises the question whether today's colleges are stili platforms for student activism. With PLU's Anti Apartheid Potest Day a week away, PLU students will get the chance to answer that question. Let's hope we use the opportunity to show that college students In the 80s do have a social conscience, and that we are willing to shout out against Inhumanity In South Africa the way 60s activists Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin st?Od up against legal segregation in the South. If we do not take the opportunity. Hoffman's assertion that PLU Is nothing more than "Yuppie turf"may be true. I�offman criticized today's students at his press conference Tuesday as "Nice little rich ladles and 'genliemen trying to be bigger rich ladles and gentlemen, and not concerned with social Issues, not concerned with U.S. foreign policy. More conservative than the general pOpulation." Sure, limes are different than they were In the 60s. As Hoffman analyzed, the 60s were unique years. It was a time of legal segregation In the South, of an immoral war In Vietnam. Together with low tuition rates and a newly developing rock culture, the Umes were rlghl for college students to shake the mighty fist of activism. But students today sllil feel outrage over human Injustice. As Hoffman said, apartheid Is an obvious target because II Is so easily Idenllfled as a moral crime. Hoffman said student activism Is "waking up" all over the c untry. and . "It's anti·apartheid that's doing It." Next week Is PLU's big chance to be a part of that "waking up." Anti Apartheid Day, organized by students through the American Com­ mittee on Africa, will Involve universities throughout the nallon. Hoffman ekpects over a million students to participate. PLU will offer a Special chapel service so that students opportunity to spiritually contest apartheid in South Africa. By signing pelltlons and writing congressmen, students can oppose apartheid pragmatically. And by participating In Anti Apartheid Day, PLU students can sym­ bolically take a stand against apartheid. Just as Importanlly, PLU can show Abbie Hoffman that PLU Isn't a sheltered p�ce of �yupple �urf," but a body of students that are capable of saying something about human InJuslice.


for the elusive Lute

by CI.yton Cowl Mast staff reporter

I think there may be an internal pro­ blem here at PLU. It all stems from our beloved mascot, The Lute. After &9king administrators, alumni and professors from every department (including anthropology and ultimate frisbee), after interrogating the presi· dent and contemplating the Good. I give up_ What the heck s i a Lute? I can' t figure it out. It's frustrating. Who in their right mind would bless a school with a mascot that looked like a fatal reactiorl between an Eddie Van Halen guitar and a violin that looked like it got caught in a prune dr ier? Most universities have "norm81" msscots. Auburn totes Tandy the Tiger around at their home games. The University of Washington dresses a poor freshman up as an eskimo and makes him cart around a sled full of stuffed husky dogs. The University of Puget Sound Log­ gers have it e&9y. They just dress in their nonnal casual attire. For those who think the " Lutes" is 'just short for Lutherans, English ma· jars have news for you. It's redundant. Trite. The Pacific Lutheran Lutherans. Cmon. PLU students have been pu.z.zling long winter nights trying to decide exactly what to bring to the games as a mascot. There's a rumor that a Lute is a furry little neosaccharine galvoslab with black horns and a gold body. However, I've yet to 500 one plastered on a t·shir t or hat. at the bookstore, so it can't be right. No one seems to know what a Lute is. Okay, this is the 80s and change is be­ ing preached every de:,.. Why not a change for ole Limpy the Lute? The University of Minnesote Golden Gofers

Of OQune, we could stay with the reputation of being Mr. Nice Guy. The PLU Optimista. Nope. Sounds too much like a club. "Ladies and Gentlemen...lntroducing the Pacific Lutheran University Eternal Bliss." No. Aristotle and Plato couldn't figure out what eternal bliss was, so how can we feeble-minded oafs do it? Maybe the PLU Polymers or the Free Radicals. The chemistry department would be proud. Oripnality should be a must. The Golden Rules? The Amy Grants? What sbout the PLU Projectiles? Not catchy enough.

We need to solve such pressing issues as gelting a mascot now instead of spen­ ding valuable time replacing defaulted ASPLU officers or trying to balance a buget after such fiscal masterpieces such as sockhops and giant concerts in 8 pre-planned money·losing effort. Pursuing financial and other pressing matters needs to be intelligently dealt with, or PLU's litudent government will sink to new ull·time lows. niceguysl).

H udson loses AI DS baHle, remedies for control suggested by Lyl. M, Jenn... The media's hype 01 aclor Aock Hud· son's recent death after his lullle struggle with the killer disease AIDS has done more than /usl boost nelwork ratings and sell newspapers. In addition to conlerrlng a coarse new implication to the famous Pruden­ tial Insurance Company slogan, the Hudson saga has been the catalyst lor unprecedented public alarm over this yet Incurable plaQue.


Thus lar, the disease which once thrived within the homosexual enclaves 01 urban America, has claim­ ed the lives of 100 percent 01 lis vic­ tims; Hudson being the most recen!. Anyone who contracted this virus in 1980 and 1981, l s aiready dead. At this lime Iwo years ago, 1,631 people had AIDS. As ol lasl month the figure has Jumped to a staggering 12.932 wllh stilt no end or cure In sight. However, most of the panic has stemmed from the epidemlc'S mallg­ nanl proilleration Inlo a predominantly heterosexual populace. As of Juty 1983, there were 109 unex­ plained AtDS cases. These victims homosexuals nor were neither members 01 one of the other high risk groups, but · rather unsuspecting heterosexuals who, even up to their deaths, had no idea as to how they contracted the virus. Lasl week, the Center, for Disease Control had reported this ligure to be a disquieting 814. an increase 01 nearly 800 percent in lust ov"!r two years.

ThiS lethal enigma which was once wrltten·olf under the auspices of being an exclusively "gay plague'" has r.ow become an explosive religious and political issue. Many theologians adhere to biblical scripture from the BI­ ble's Genesis (Chapter Two) which clearly slates, "Adam and Eve" nol, "Adam and Sieve." Furthermore, they go on to say: There was no mlsprtnt, no mistaken Identity, and the latter clear· Iy Is an abomination against the almighty God and they (The Homosex· uals) will surely be condemmed to hell. Others are like Port Commissioner Jim Wright, a worthy candidate for King County Execullve, who made headlines when he advocated the Quarantine of AIDS carriers. Health officials in San Francisco and New York evoked the wrath of gay activists when they closed down cer· tain bath houses. long believed to be the spawning grounds for AIDS and other diseases and determined. to be public health hazards. The U.S. Armed Forces have begun screening all of theIr new recruits for the disorder and children with AIDS have been barred from attending public schools. Many gay rights groups have viewed these and other equivalent measures by government as an Infringement upon their civil liberties. Although we are guaranteed numerous rights and prlvlloges under our constitution, It Is important to remember that these freedoms are af· forded only 10 those activities that do not seriously endanger oneself or one's fellow citizens.

Enrollment slipping

In short. government has no right, constitutionally or morally, to dictate the se)l:ual orientation 01 Its governed. However. It not only has the right, but indeed the obligation to protect Its citizenry from any potentiat threats to Its health and welfare. To contain and eventually eliminate the hazard that AIDS transmits throughout our society, the following steps should be taken: l.Increased funding lor AIDS research. All other containment will prove Ineffective unless we lind a cure lor the epidemic before It can afflict a large portIon of our society. 2.Screen all potential blood donors and require them to sign a statement regarding their health . and sexual oriental Ion. 3.Establish firm guidelines to pro­ tect public servants and others who have 10 deal with the carriers. 4.AeQuire physicians to report the names and addresses of AIDS victims 10 stale health boards. We should be skeptical of the demagogues and the alarmists who e)l:ploil the AIDS Issue to carty out their own hate campaign against homosexuals. The fight Is against AIDS, not homosexuality. This killer disease can be. overcome with a pragmatic policy of contain· ment and an accelerated program of medical research.

jCPS) The Census Bureau says a lo-year decline in ootsl school enroll· ment may forcast slipping college enroll· ment, but returning adult students pushed up college populations 45 per. cent between 1970and 1981. College enrollment went from 7.4 millionon 197000 10.7 million on 1981. At the same time. students' median age climbedfrom 27.9 years to 31.2. and the number of students younger than 22 slipped to 48 percent

Measle risk increases New ooUege students stand a 15 per­ cent chance of catching the measles by the end of this school year, said resear­ chers in • recent College Press Service article. They blame the epidemica of recent years on a weak vaccine distributed bet­ ween 1957 and 1967 and the large number of unimmuniz.ed young adults.

University Plan to give guidance, refinements Faculty input emphasized by Jonathan


Mast reporter

President Rieke's recently published ';-�r t"cul· .. five-year plan for PLU f' ty input to control PLl olperating costs while still maintaining current academic standards. Provost Richard Jungkuntz said that an eight·member faculty group, compos­ ed of members from each school and divison, will work in tandem with university administrators to realize the five-year plan'sgoals, plan's Jungkuntz described the foremost question as being, " Are we still aware of our main purpose and w!lat we want to be?" The year 1990 will be the university's centennial year. Between now and then, PLU will be "balancing the mobile" of university operations, Jungkuntz said. The initial statement in Rieke's plan emphasized PLU's strong Lutheran roots. Jungkuntz compared the vision of the Rieke report to the days of ex-PLU President Seth Eastvold. before PLU became a university. Students and faculty at that time knew exactly why they were here, he said. PLU is once said focus, its again ' sharpening Junkkuntz, Future emphasis at PLU will'be on maintaining current enrollment. It also

will continue to be an institution where the faculty know each other and where jJrofessional programs have a sturdy position atop PLU's foundation in the arts. he said, l iberal

Defining PLU's goals is just On(! part of the plan, The " nuts and bolt.s" of im· plementing measures to keep university costs down and academic standards up definitely requires faculty input, the provost said. . In general the plan seeks to give university administrators a "firmer grip on the rudder," Jungkuntz said. But, he added, PLU would not be a "first closs school" without good facul· ty and staff. "We need a balanced faculty point of view," he said, "We tthe administrationl don't want to be stupid.. ' he said, em­ phasizing the need for CQst control while remaining concerned about academic excellence. The largest expenditure in PLU's budget is payroll demand, he !laid. Though the faculty group will be ind ""ays to reduce responsible to f payroll costs. none of the means to do this have been set yet and they will only be implemented after much study, he said. But the possibilities, the provost said, include reducing the amount of non· required courses, re<:onfiguring existing

Mexican quakes create concerns; local officials are tremor-ready by Jonathan Feste Mast reporter Re<:ent Mexican earthquakes have i once again rocked Northwesterners nto tremor awareness, The last big Washington quake, registering 6,5 on the Richter scale, hit in 1965. Its effe<:t on PLU was noticed three years later when an engineering in­ spection determined that a cracked Harstad Hall chimney required removal. according to Physcial Plant Director Jim Phillips. No other damage was reported. Since 1965, the Northwest's soil has been relatively unshaken. Yet Charles Pearson, the principal civil/structural engineer in the City of Tacoma's building department, believes the area may be overdue for another big quake. citing the 16·year span between the 1965 tremor and an even large one that reached 7.1 on the Richter in 1949.

New ideas instated in food service operations DeUbor

by Krlstl ThomdIke, Projects editor and MIrt.m Bacon, Mast reporter

"The deli bar is a good idea,"said Grant. "It adds another aIternative to the regular meals, " he said. "I'm finding I eat a lot more bread with the new bagel bar," said Suunne Arensmeyer, sophomore. "I never eat any of the other stuff," said Ruth Foster, sophomore. "It's a strange day if I do. Every night I eat a bagel," she said. Tim Fonken, sophomore. said he only saw one thing wrong with the deli bar. Food service is using the fact that you can go to the deli bar as an excuse for serving poor food," he said. Many students said they found that the microwaves complimented the deli bar. "I'd rather just have hot sand· wiches sometimes," said Ken Ryals, junior. "It's nice to have the option:'

Reacting to student requests, PLU's food service recently underwent the most extensive changes in fifteen years. Some of the changes include the addi· tion of meal plan options and a greater variety in food selection. Microwaves, an ice machine, two juice machines, and a ten·foot salad bar are other additions to the UC this year. The MfI3t asked severa] students their opinions on the "new and improved" food service. Reactions were generally favorable, although students were not completely satisfied with the results.


The new meaI plan options range from the full meal plan at $730 per semester to three meals a day Monday through Friday for $625 a semester. "The difference in cost doesn't justify "I like the way it's set up. It's not in going for the cheaper plans," said junior the middle of everything the way it used Rod Reed. "There are more options but the quality of the food is the same," he ... to be," Ryals said. "It makes it much easier to get the stu£f," he said. said. "The salad bar is better," said Grant.

room, Sheryl Bennett, food service � checker, said. "Having the entree lines in front of the drinks is utterly stupid," Grant said, "Especialy when most of the glasses are by the lines."

Students have been rerouted to enter the UC in 'the same area as they exit. Students must also present their 10 cards to the checkers in order to be allowed in the dining facility. This has caused miIed feelings among students. " I don't think it's much of an inconve­ nience," said Hanson. " I think it's a better system than what we had before. There are a few flaws, but it's more accurate," said Bennett. "It makes it so the right people are eating, and not those visiting or sneak· ing in the back door, It's fairer to everyone," she said. " I think it {food servicel needs some way so we don't have to have our 10 cards, Kristin Weinman, senior, said. "The number system was a lot better," she said. Using ID cards is the only real way food service can keep track of things, Ryals said. "I haven't lost my ID card yet this year because I carty it with me wherever I go," he said. "I don't like the new line system," Gleason said. "You have to keep swit· ching directions' and everyone gets stuck in front of the drinks," she said. "It seems like everything is a lot more congested now," Arensmeyer said. " I hate havillg to fight for my food" The whole rerouting "looks more con· fusing but it runs faster," Bennett said. "Overall it's a little better than last year," said Ha.naon. The lines were recently shifted away from gl.a.sees and drinks at the north side of the eer-viJ!g area to allow more

Destefano said she felt food service has come a long way n i improving the menu. "Five years ago students used to get a bowl oflettuce for salad," she said. "We're trying to change our m i age. We're working toward a positive m i age here at fOod service by treating the students as customers," Destefano said. "We hope :hey treat food service with the same respect, " she said. "We want to treat the students as customers and hope the students act as if they were in a restaurant," she said. Destefano gave examples of picking up napkins, food messes. and tearing salt and pepper shakers apart. "We are trying to create a homelike atmosphere 88 much 88 possihle," Destefano said. Every month food service is planning a "special event." A costume contest will be in October near Halloween. Thanksgiving will feature a pie eating contest and a tree decorating party will be at Christmas time. Interim will feature a theme dinner every week. "We're getting nothing but favorable comments," said Destefano. Overall, reaction was positive about food service's strives to please the students. They seemed satisfied with the food service meal options and varie­ ty offoods.

H igher costs, budget freezes trap colleges

College Press Service


For the second strwght year, officials of Michigan's 15 state colleges and universities faced a di l emma: raise tuition and risk losing state funtling or accept Gov. James Blanchard's offer for II bigger slice of the state budget by freezing their tuition rates. The schools said they needed both more tuition money and more state money to operate. "We have inadequate resources, even with the generous action of the (state) government." Michigan State President John DiBiaggio complained. But MSU and the others finally accepted the offer last week, rolling bac� planned tuition hikes of about nine percent. "Some have not completed their moves to rescind the tuition increases," says Tom Scott, Blanchard's deputy press secretary. "But all have indicated they


Students elsewhere won't be that lucky this school year. A College Board report released last week found it will cost students nationwide much more to go to col· lege this fall. Tuition and fees will rise eight percent at private four-year colleges, nine percent at public four·year schools, eight percent at two-year private schools and nine percent at public two-year colleges, the College Board found. Tuition alone will increase an average of about seven percent at all schools, says Jack Cox of the National Associa.tion of College and University Business Of· ficers (NACUBO). "Colleges are playing catch·up from the dOUble-digit inflation periods of the seventies," Cox explains. Administrators say college costs have to keep rising faster than the current n i flation rate to raise faculty salaries and pay for increased operating costs and school nforms.

Catching up means increases of 11.9 percent at Miami, percent by 1986·87 at Big Bend Communi· ty College (WA) and percent at the U. of Washington. Texas tripled its tuition, whi l e Southwest Missouri State's rose 10 percent, Yale's percent and Minot State College's (NO) 15 percent. Though higher education may be the only industry n i America still raising its prices at a rapid rate, some see a slowing.




"The f igures show a slowdown (in the rate of in· crease), and that's a hopeful sign," asserts Bill McNamara of the National Association of Indepen· dent Colleges and Universities. "But the question of cost containment is beginning to bother people." It especially bothers students, who are tired of being "treated like dollar signs" as schools "become more like businesses than learning institutes," says Col· orado State University student Jim DeFede. "All we're good for s i to squeeze as much money out of us as possible." DeFede led a summer protest of a planned tuition hike by distributing to CSU students applications to cheaper schools, writing legis1ators and staging rallies and class boycotts. "We ended up with a percent increase anyway," DeFede says. "Tuition has nearly doubled in the past five years." " They say they need to increase faculty salaries," he adds. "but the best faculty 8T& leaving."


"In the seventies, colleges couldn't raise tuition as much as the inflation r£.te," Cox recalls. "and salaries still aren't where they should be."

Lehigh, South Dakota, Pacific Lutheran, West Georgia College, North Dakota State, Nebraska. Georgia and Penn State. among others, say their tui· tion hikes are to cover needed faculty and benefit increases.


"Most of our 9.l percent n i crease in necesstU)' to keep up with faculty compensation," says Lehigh Budget Director James Tiesenhrunn. "We tend to lag behind in salary increases because tuition doesn't tend to rise as quickJy as inflation." i 1984·85 went up 6.6 percent, Average faculty pay n (.or .5 percent after nflation, i the American Associa· tion ofUnviersity Professors reports. But "OUT increase covers a number of needs," in· cluding computer equipment. climbing maintenance and repair costa and new program, Tiesenbrunn continues. "You have to look at what tuition pays for as oppos­ ed to what it costs to educate a student," NACUBO's � Cox points out. "A seven percent hike is really pretty . modest." They should stay "modest" in the near future, too, he .adds, "I don't think there'll be big, massive in· creases unless something in the economy goes

"Where il the point where tuition increases force out a significant number of students so income to the par· ticipating i Istitutions drops?" wonders Richard H ill, Oregon's vice president of academic affairs. The University of Oregon hiked tuition only three percent this year, he report, and plans a freeze in 1986-87. "The concern for me and for UO is to make public education available to a broad base of the citizenry," he eJ:plains. "You can't continue to increase tuition and attract students." "If we price higher education out of'reach of the average family," Michigan spokeman Scott states. "the state will be in real trouble."

Big schools push students to smal ler col leges College Press Servlca

Enrollment caps and tougher ad· missions requirementS designed to force more fOUT'year public college students into smaller public colleges seem to be falling short of their goals this fall, some observers say. Administrators and lawmakers have been trying to convince students to switch from more popular large. four· year campuses to smaller state schools. In recent years, the popular campuses have had trouble paying for enough facilities and classes for the increasing numbers of students who have enrolled. Smaller four- and two-year campuses. on the other had. have struggled to enroll enough students w pay for facilities they've already built. This fall. some states have raised ad· missions requirements and limited enrollments at the popular schools, figuring shut-out students would enroll at the smaller campuses. Initially, it hasn't wcorked out that way. "The more you put caps and re­ quirements on enrollment, the more eager students are to go w those institu· tions." says Bert Ockerman. of the American Association of College Hegistrars and Admissions Officers iAACRAO). "The plans aren't doomed to failure," he adds. "but they're certainly less than successful. " "People still clamor to "et in o these schools Ockerman explwns.

Controlling attitude decreases student stress

Student stress may reach high College Press Service Students entering school this fall will encounter stresses they've never dealt with before, and will ' probably endure regular "acedemic calendar of stress" periods before they finish college, a new University of Utah study reveals. "Students are away from home. many for the first time, and dealing with pressures and responsibilities they've never had before," explains study co­ author Neal Whitman. a researcher with the university's Department of Family annin .

Sports Iverson . Decisions to be made, a career to be decided by Mike Condardo

Mast sports editor

Most athletes dream of one day making it to the pro­ fessional levels of athletics. For college athletes. the dream becomes even morE' vivid as college is the last stop before making it or not making it. The percentage of athletes playing big·time college sports that make it to the professional ranks is less than five percent. For the smaller colleges like Pacific Lutheran University. the percentages decline even more. But PLU senior Kevin Iverson may break down the statistical barrier and make the dream come true. Iverson has been approached by pro soccer teams. among them the Los Angeles Lazers of the Major In· door Soccer League (MISL]. asking him to play on their clubs. But that means Iverson had a difficult decison to make. Should he leave PLU for the life of the professional sports world and test the .....aters of having a successful career there? Or should he stick it out and graduate next spring with a business degree? Iverson's decision was nota hasty one. " In my sophomore year, I sat out (of PLU soccer] and tried out with the Tacoma Stars and then ....ent . down to LA and worked out with some pro players there," said Iverson. "I could'\'e possibly signed a con· tract with them then, except it wasn't for very much money, so I came back to school to play." But by staying at PLU, that could prevent Iverson from being seen by the professional scouts. '"J "ve been told by the Fe Tacoma coaches that if I stayed at PLU. it's just going to hold me back," he said. "Very few scouts come out and watch a small school like this, and that's rough on me." Along with that aspect of his decision, Iverson also must choose what he will be most happy with. " It's my senior year and I should graduate, but I'm offered a contract and it's a decent contract,"' said Iverson. "But the soccer wages compared to other sports are tremendously low. You're paid a lot if you get S60,000 u year, which is a minimum salary in other sports." " It's just the fact that I have one more year to graduate, but I've been planning on graduating (from college) since I was real little," said Iverson. " I never really gave any thought to (playing pro) socce� until the last couple ofyears." Iverson realizes that by not accepting an offer he is limiting his chances of ever playing pro soccer. But that hasn't effected his decision. "'I figure if I'm good enough now, I can't do anything but get better," he said. "If I just went out there (with a pro team) and got hurt, I'd have nothing. Whereas if I went down there after graduation and got hurt, at least I'd have a diploma tofaU back on.'" Iverson is confident with the dedsion he has made in

Iverson's decIsion wasn't an easy one-lhe world 01 prolessklnal socceror a college dipbna not accepting a contract. but he can't help but think. '"Did I make the right choke?" " It took me a whi l e to make the decision, and I was at the point where either way, I knew I'd regret it someday," he said. "It was a good opportunity and I regret not taking it, but then I'd regret, years from now, not finishing schoo1."' I verson's future plans do not totaUy rule out a soccer career. Currently. he is training with some local pro players who are helping him prepare to play in England or n i Europe. Iverson wants to go to Europe to play because they play outdoor soccer., whereas in the U.S. the outdoor league is almost defunct. exc�pt for a team here and there and the only alternative is indoor soccer. Iverson has set some goals for himself as he finishes up his career as a Lute. Iverson's main goal is "just beat Simon Fraser." The Clansmen beat the Lutes last year n i the district playoffs on what Iverson terms a "nuke call," which gave Simon Fraser a triple­ overtime victory and knocked the Lutes out of the ' playoffs.

As far as how far the Lutes will go in 1985. Iverson's expectations are high. "RealisticaUy, we have a shot at the national tournament, but it is sort of slim because there are better teams, talent·wise than us. like Warner·Pacific and Simon Fraser,"' said Iverson. "Those are the two teams that can keep us from go­ ingm to nationals. '" What about the chance of playing before his hometown fans with the Tacoma Stars? He sat out his sophomore season with the Lutes to try-out with the Stars. Why not? "I would (play for them) with a decent contract,"' said Iverson kiddingly, "Even if it wasn't a decent con­ tract, I'm going to be 21 when I graduate. and I figure I could spend a couple of years on it, just to give it a shot:'

McBain suf, fered a spraint.'{] ankle and figures to be out one to two wC!'!ks. ' "Linda is our strongest blocker and she was really coming along,"' said head l"Oach Marcene Sullivan. "We'll just have to adjust and move Sharon Schmitt back to the middle." Sullivan isn't worried about her squud's performance. She sees it com­ ing alon�just fine. 'They've bt.oen playing really. real· Iy wt'lI."· suid a sotisfied Sulli\'an

"The girls should feel real good with their performance. They're digging balls and that is something that hasn't been soon III PLU before. We're coming along ... we ju�t have to be patient.·· Sullivan had high praise for the whole squad, but a few members in particular. " Vivian Hill earned herselJ a starting spot," said Sullivan. '"She is consistent in her play. and she doesn't muke errors. Dand Hinman is also playing well." She also spotlighted the Lutes bench for their dedication and hard work. "The poople on the ben{'h have had a wonderful attitude," she said. "It's encouraging to know that they·re there." "And they're playing hard in pruc' lice," added Sullivun's assistant coach Carolyn Fuller. The Lutes may not be winning as much as they like, but Sulli\'an notes that they are just on the verb'\! of breaking through that obstacle. . "We're losing the c�ose rallies, she

suid. " but if we can win 1.1 couple gumes of say 16'14, they'lI get the confidence and then they'll know they can do it." Teams around the leab'Ue are also noticing the strong play of the Lutes. Sulb'un pointed out how the Linfield volleybull coach spoke to the Lewis & Clark coach saying that he had never St.'Cn anything like it, referring to the well'played matches by the Lutes. The Lutes will face the University of l:.uget Sound next Tuesday ut 7:30 p.rn" the second meeting of those two teams of the 1985 season.

Lutes forced to tie with Willamette; Linfield next byClayton Cowl Mast sports editor Pacific Lutheran University head football coach Frosty Westering was puffmg on his proverbial cigar in the second-half of a Columbia League battle against Willamette with a 26-2 lead, when it blew up in his face. The Bearcats went on a scoring spree in the fourth quarter, !l('oring 24·unanswered ' points in the fo�h period to post a 26-26 deadlock and send the Lutes home in second place in the conference standings. A combination of injury to star­ ting signal-ealler Jeff Yarnell. a total loss of offensive momentum and a driving wind halted the PLU attack in the final frame. Willamette, on the other hand, capitalized on virtually every scor­ ing opportur ity they had n i the final ten minutes of the game. A record-breaking 51-yard field goal by Bearcat Pete Smith with 44 seconds on the clock tied . the game and left the Lutes with their first tie since 1968 when they knotted Lin­ field at 7-7. PLU, ranked No. 4 in last week's NAIA Division II coaches' poll, face No. ranked Linfield (2·0) tomorrow night at Lakewood Stadium with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. PLU started the game in proven fashion. much in the way the Lutes dispatched Fugat Sound the week before, 54-13. A solid scoring drive n i the first quarter, combi ned with a fine defensive effort gave the Lutes a 19-2 lead at the hall.

Phony transcripts. academic cheating, t.a.king "Mickey MOU88" courees like Theory of Coaching Basketball, Safety with Power Tools, and Underwater' BB Stacking, and still graduating. It's appalling. In 1980, the collegiate educational system went mad. Case No. 1: Universi· ty of Oregon President William Boyd revealed that seven Oregon athletes received credit for which they did no work. Case No. 2: Five New Mexico basket­ ball players were declared ineligible for having received three hours of credit for an extension course-Cun-ent Problems and Principles of Coaching Athletics. The credit was handed out by Ottawa IKansas) University and the class was taught during the summer of 1979 in Sepulveda. California-a class they never attended. There are many other cases . that reveals an educational system gone mad. I know. I've heard how hard these· athletes work, how they spend long, hard hours practicing and playing. on

The Bearcats broke' within 10 points at 26·16 after reserve quarterback Tyler Trunbull fired an interception that helped baclrup quarterback of DeLuca Andy Willamette crank up and hit Jeff Jones for a 9-yard scoring strike with just over five minutes left in the contest.

DeLuca went wild in the passing department, connecting on 11 of 20 passingperformance for 103 yards.

Poor field position, an inspired Bearcat defense against the run, and the gusty wind set up a Lee Sherman inter'ception from deep in his own territory that Wayne Epps picked off and sprinted untouched for a 2.f-yard touchdown. The miss· ed extra-point. left the score at 26·23 with under two minutes r-mlaining. A long return on the ensuing

"You can always second-guess yourself and say you should have kept everyone in and stayed in con­ trol," explained Westering. "In this case, yes......e didn't have the right per80nnel in there and as a coach repsonsible for the players. I have to take the blame."

the road in buses. and then having to study around it. For as long as collegiate sports has been around, the image of tbe "dumb jock" has stayed with rigbt there with it. The athlete who's neck s i a s:iz.e larger than the best grade he ev er received in college. The athlete who's IQ is equal to his shoe sUe. But this is not even near the case at here at Lu�Land. Pacific Lutheran University has a high rate of athletes who's grade points are extremely high. For example, every year there are 18 Scholar Athlete awards given away to athletes throughout Washington. Last year, PLU athletes captured 10 of those 18 awards and they are to be commended. These athletes Sn! selected by coaches throughout the state and here's the Lutes who were selected last spring: Football-Don Collom Women's CICSS Country-Denlsa Sto.k� Women's Soccer..Bobbl Jo Crow Men's Swlmmlng..Brian Beu Women's Swimming_Kirsten Olson

PLU also offers its own scholar­ athlete award each year and the qualifications are pretty stiff to be con' sidered. You must participate for two years in a varsity sport, and have a minimum grade point average of3.30. Last year, 50 athletes qualified for consideration of the award and of those fifty athletes, the GPA came out to an outstanding 3.61. The male scholar· athlete was Mark Helm, while Bobbi Jo Crow received the female schoJar.athlete


Along with those awards, PLU also has many Academic AlI·Americans, so many that space doesn't allow me to honor them. It is important to recognize these a�hletes because the athlete does spend a lot of his or her time on the field, in practice, or traveling. Yet they keep up their studies. How do PLU athletes do as teams? Last year, 12 frosh men's basketball players had an average GPA of 3.62, while the combined cross country :.earn of 30 athletes had a team GPA of 3.35. How about the women's tennis squad. They had an average GPA of 3.16 and the combined swim teams had an average of 3.04. Why all this attention to PLU athletes? Take a look around you n i col· lege sports Sure they hav� their

ef£ort was thwarted as three runn· ing plays and a delay of game penal­ ty netted eight yards.

Craig Mathiasen's punt from the 32 ended up traveling only seven yards from scrimmage, and sfw four plays, Willamette sent out the field goal team. Smith's boot was high and strong and smashed the former Willamette University record of 48 yards set in 1979.

The Lutes roUed up 365 yards of· fensively compared to Willamette's 200 total yards. All-American runn· ing back Mike VinG..ivich ran for on· ly 42 yards afw a 139-yard rushing barrage against UPS.

Mark Helm carried the ball 12 times for 35 yards, while Jud Keirn rambled for 35 yards on seven car­ ries. Steve Welch was the reception specialist for the Lutes with seven grabs for 132 yards. while Keirn had two catches for 13 yards.

Westering was reserved about picking up his lOOth win as a PLU head coach. "It really doesn't mat­ ter how many wins or losses you have out there," he said. "It's just a by.product of doing the best you can every baUgame."

For Linfield, the guys ought to be really motivated to win," he con­ tinued. "It'll be a heclruva game. But in this league, you have to motivated for every game." .

It was to get a jump on what the coaches theory would be for his players in the upcoming season. Yes, I know the injustia! of academics and athletics is out there and I know

Suicide _ does not happen everyday. But in the past two and II half weeks there have been four suicide attempts at PLU, according to Brad McLaine, assis­ tant campus safety director. The most recent attempt occurred at about 10:50 the evening of Oct. 3 n i Pflueger Hall. said McLaine. University Pastor Ron Tellefson said all of the threats involved pills. or pills and alcohol combined. The students attempting the suicides were all female, Tellefson said.

According to McLaine. the fourth at· tempt involved a 13'year"<)ld girl atten· ding the East Campus Good Samaritan program.

Black college enrollment drops in state, nation by Gerd·Hann. Fosen Mast staff reporter Fewer black students find their way to college today than they did a few years ago. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, this is a nationwide trend, and statistics show the same holds true at PLU, U.S. Census Bureau statistics show that between 1965 and 1983 black enrollment has dropped. In 1976 blacks constituted 34 percent of the nation's total college enrollment. That figure has dropped to 27 percent. A decade ago there were 3.1 percent (l061 blacks attending PLU. The latest stutistics from this fall show that of the toUlI enrollment, only 73 students are black, constituting 1.9 percent of the school's total enrollment. "However. these numbers might not be accurate:' said Joann Jones of the Minority Affairs Office at PLU. "8<Jme students choose not to identify themselves as belonging to a special ethnic group. and this makes it hard for us to tell exactly how many blacks there are here," she said, adding that the st.atistics stiil show the general trend of declining black enrollment, SWtcwide statistics show a drop in black enrollment at both public and private institutions. According to the council for Postsccondary Education, there were 1,418 less blacks attcndillg college in the stale in 1984 than there were n i 1974 " I n the late 60s and early 70s there was a focus on black education:' Jones said. During those years the k>dcrul government launched financial aid pro­ b'TamS for minority students and sup·

ported recruiting, Jones said, In the 80s there have been drastic aid cutbacks and not as much attention is paid to black education any longer, ac· cording to a recent Newsweek article, . "Education in the U.S. right now is in trouble, and black education even more o,·'Jones said. Looking at PLU, in particular, Jones said, "The fir5t reason studf'.nt.5 give me for not wanting to come to PLU i5 that is is too expensive." She added that some of it has to do with the fact that prospective student.5 do not get enough information about their possibilities. "Many blacks do not kn<>w about the finacial aid they possibly could obtain." Jones said. adding that a growing number of student.5 today aren't willing

to put themselves deep in debt by tak: ing out student loans to fillance their edul:ation. She doubt.s the situation will change under the Reagan administration. However. she predicts "the number of blacks in coUege will increase someti me n i the not too distant future." She bases her prediction partly on st.atistics showing the ethnic enrollment trend for Tacoma high schools: the percentage of white students has decreased whi l e that of minority students has increased during the last 10 years. Jones suggested since the university's title refers to the Lutheran church, which is predominantly white, black

students might shy away from seekin� enrollment. She adds that "this is pro­ bably because they do not know 8.!lything about what is going on here," The majority of PLU blacks live in the Tacoma area, Jones said that proximity is the major reason why many of them are here. James Van Beek, dean of admissions at PLU. pointed out that the MESA (Math. Engineering, Science Achieve­ menU program PLU has been involved in for the past two yeliTs is designed to recruit minority students from four of Tacoma's public high school5. It is designed to encourage minority students to consider math, engineering. and science for their careeu. Jones 5aid the response to this pro­ gram has been very good. Kevin Moore, a senior. questions whether PLU really wants more blacks to come here. "I know they go out and recruit and all that, but 1 don't think they really make a strong effort:' he said. He suggested that a reason for thi5 might be that the university "might not get the rich, while students to come here [if·there are too many blacks.I The parentS""'1Would perhaps send their kids to other schools, and th�� way PLU would lose a lot of money. Phillis Lane. director of Minority Af· fairs, said that the mpression i she gets from most blacks at PLU is that they feel comfortable in the university en· vironment. "It is a protected environ· ment. and you feel safe here:' she said.

Campus Ministry organizes relief effort by Miriam Bacon Mast staff reporter

PLU students have an opportunity to help victims of the recent earthquakes in Mexico by contributing to a campus· wide clothing drive. The offices of Minority Student Pro­ grams and Campus r-.Hnistry are organizing the relief effort. which con­ tinues until 1\i�sday. "We need usable clothes plus blankets and quilts, " said Joann Jones. student advisor for Minority Stude�t Programs. "We have students here (at PLU) from the area affected by earthquakes. she said. Sylvia Estrlldll is one such student. The PLU senior was bom in, Arteaga, Mexico in the province of Michoacan, just west of Mexico City. Her mother and father grew up in Mexico but moved to the U.s. n i the late 60s with five-year-oid Sylvill and their other children.

"Everybody outside of my immediate family is still in iliexico," said Estrada. So when earthquakes shook Mexico City she experienced fear and IInxicty o\'er the welfare of her relatives. Estrada's uncle. a diplomat living in Mexico City, called soon after the quake to say he was all right. But news from her other reilltivcs in the area was slow incoming. It WIIS two weeks before Estrada had any word from relatives living n i the coastal areas of Mexico. Finally the family was notified thllt no one was hurt and the only damage was done to Estrada's grandmother's house. "She was on her way to Mass when the roof tumbled." she said, "I always kind of felt that everything would be OK I had a lot of faith." Estrada said she was surprised and frustrated that many people at PLU were unaware of what had happened, " it upset me that a lot ofpeople didn't even know there was an earthquake. I would have thought people would know," she said.

But there were those who knew of her ties to Mexico and tried to relieve some of her worry. "I appreciat.e all my friends that have asked about my family. I can study now and I'm thankful that everyone is safe." said Estrada, " I hope people will remember that things lire happening outside of PLU and keep people in their prayers. " Meanwhile, relief efforts continue both at PLU and elsewhere. Campus clothing drive organizers are asking each student to donate one piece of clothing. Donations may be dropped off in the Minority Student Program office or the Campus Ministry office. All donations be picked up by the Salvation Army and shipped to where they are needed.


The Salvation Army was recently notified that a cruise ship stop in Seattle to Mexico any items collected. "Sundance Lines stopped in Seattle on their way to Acapulco." said

Another group of doctors from Tacoma departed for Mexico last week: they were also spon· sored by the Salvation Army. "The number one thing we're working on ia cash contributions." said Lonergan. With cash, the needy can get exactly what is necessary, he said. "The reponse has been very ," he said, "cash contributions are coming in steadily."

Which college is best for you?

b� Lance Kuykandall Mast staff reporter

An estimllted 500 high school students swarmed the campus when PLU hosted its annual college con­ ferenceday Monday morning. The students. mostly seniors from eight area high schools. had the oppor­ tunity to meet representatives from 26 colleges across the state. The conference is the first n i a two­ month series hOlited at a number of col· leges statewide. It was sponsored by the Washington Conference on Iiigh School/College Rela· tions, an organization of aU Washington colleges. "Throughout the slate they have regularly scheduled conferences," said David Gunovich. assistant Dean of Ad· missions at PLU. allowing students in the area tomeet college representatives. Wendy Manning, a senior at Rogers High School. saw presentations by UPS, Wester Washington University, and PLU. "I don't know much about colleges," she said. " so I'mjusl tf}'ing to fmd out anything." She said she is locking for a college with a tennis team and is planning to study business and recreation management. Another Rogers student, Lisa Williams. said the conference " helped a lot" in finding out what different schools had to offer. Williams said she wants to study theater. Through the conference. she said she discovered that the Cornish In·


stitute " has a lot to offer of what I'm in· tere in." Her ne:r.t step, she said. " is togo to my counselor and get more information." Gunovich said PLU hosts the con­ ferences both because it is near a number of high scnoois, and because it may help recruit students for the university. "I can't say for sure it gets any students. but it is nice to have the university sponsor the event," Gunovich said. " It does give us II chance toshow off. '·


He said PLU might only be the number three choice for a studeDt when he first. comes to the conference. "but afterthey hear our rep and see the cam­ pus, we're number one," Tom Smith, a senior at Puyallup High School, who attended the PLU presenta­ tion. said conferellce helped to confirm that he wanted to attend PLU. ;Ie said "PLUwas like one or two" beforecoming to the conference. After seei�� its pn:sentation, "it's number on, Gunovich said hosting the conference is "reaJly worth t�e effort. A lot of



students come to hear about "LV," he said. particularly students from the local community. This year, he said, about 200 students sat in on PLU'a presentations. He said the schools which draw the most students are the University of Washington, Washington State Univer­ sity, UPS, and PLU. High schools participating in the con­ ference included Bethel. Eatonville, Franklin Pierce, Sumner, Washington, Rogers. Puyallup, and Spanaway Lake.

Anti-·Apartheid Day predicts sit-ins, protest College Press Service Activists hope to tum up the heet of the student anti·apartheid movement _ which culminated in mass sit·ins and protest marches at doo..ens of colleges last spring - again as campuses nation· wide participate n i a notional day of pro­ test today.

'C' average may be required to receive aid College Press $erllce College students moy have to main· tain a "C" average in the future in order to get financial aid. The grnde requirement is jU5t one change in the aid system Congress is now debating as it tries to pass the Higher Education Ileauthorizntion Act of 1985. The grade meaS'lre. proposed by senators Don Nickies IR-Ok) and Clair· bome Pel! IO·R.I.), has been proposed unsuccessfully before. But chances for its passage may be good this time. sources say, because legislators are looking for relatively painless ways to cut the federal budget and because of recent publicity a\:onut bad students who get financial aid. Currently, students only must be in good standing and make "satisfactory academic progress" toward a degree to receive federal aid. "Unfortunately," Nickles said during a hearing earlier this month, " there have been problems with this open-ended defutition. "Because of this open-ended oppor· tunity for abuse, I believe we need to have a more specific standard" Nickles originally advanced his idea after a 1981 audit found nearly 20 per­ cent of the students who got aid had less than a "C" average. 10 percent bad a cumulative GPA under 1.5. Congress also is debating a bill to let graduate students, who generally face higher education costs that undergrad.s. borrow more federally·guaranteed loan money and pay it hack over a longer period of time. The reauthorization process, which ef­ fectively sets federal higber education policies for the ensuing five years, usual­ ly ' a slew of proposals that law.

'Because of the open-ended opportunity for abuse, I believe we need a more specific definition (of satisfactory academic pI'O' gress fOf students to receive financial aid) .

during these congressional revIew sessions. The grading bill would put aid reci­ pients whose grades fall below 2.0 on probation for a term. If the student doesn't improve by the end of the probation period, he or she will be denied federal aid. Administrators would be empowered. however, to extend the probation period for hardship cases. such as extended illness.

The new break for graduate students who want a Guaranteed Student Loan (GSL) program came up during a House subcommittee hearing. Georgetown University law school dean John Kramer. speaking for a coali­ tion of law school associations, said grad students needed the break. "Over time, middJe class students in particular are just not going to be able to afford a graduate education." Kramer

PLU students and financial aid: 'No problem here' says Hendricks

by Katherine Hedland

Mast staH reporter

Approximately 70 percent of PLU's students receive fIll8.lcl iaJ cid from the university. But n i order to continue receiving that aid, there are reo quinments they must meet. The student catalog outlines these rules as Academic Requirements and Satisfactory Progress. It states that students must remain in "good stan­ ding", while completing at least 24 credits during the course of a year. If their GPA is unsatisfactory, they will be put on academic probation. This does not mean their financial aid will stop, but they will be put on Finan­ cia! Aid Probation. If a student remains on probation for two consecutive, or three total semesters, they will no longer be eligible for aid.

Moroo\'cr, unless debt repayment lire changed, many l,"I"aduate students will feel obligated to take high· paying johs after they get their degree. instelld of going into teaching or com· munity work. Kramer predicts. Kramer's plan would let graduate students borrow more than they cur' rently can. and. if they borrow more than SIS.OOO. repay it over iO to 20 years. E"tended repayment periods current· Iy are made at the discretion of the len· ding agency. policies

"There is n o regular problem here. Besides, it's too expensive to go to school here and be flunking out," Perry said. Perry does not foresee any changes in t.he present requirementa as there is no need for change at PLU. Albert Perry, Director of Financial Aid, explained that as long as the Registrars office allOW8 students to stay in school in good standing, they will receive financial aid. Perry stated that it is uncommon for his office to have pfO' blems with students on probation.. There are currently only a few students in that situation. but tbey have no major problems. Perry said students at community col· leges and others on differtmt levels than PLU add to the large numbers of students with low IU8des.

In part because the plan calls for graduate students to pay the interest on the loans beginning with the 10th year after graduation, Kramer calculates that the changes will save the govern· ment between 1200 and $SOO million a year. Students would assume the cost, but Kramer thinks they ultimately should be making enough to keep the payments from being too much of a burden. Current law allows the administration to adjust loan limits, but Kramer says recent law schools' requests for ad· justments have been rejected.

Although Kramer's proposals were only for graduate students, he says they could be just as easily applied to all students. In fact, the American Council of Education, the most prominent higher education lobbying group, wants to in· ouse loan limits to $3,000 from $2,500 for fre8hmaen and sophomores, and to SS,OOO from $5,000 for graduate students. As yet, Reagan administration of· ficials have not commented publicly on either the grade requirement or the grad students differential proposals. Education Secretary William Bennett is expected to unveil his own proposals for the reauthorization of higher educa· tion laws later this year.

M usicians seek place to cal l own Plan altered to lower cost by Jenna Abrahamson Mast re porte r

Firs t of two parts

School of the Arts administrators are still trying to fund and build a new arts facility at PLU - the same facility that has been on the drawing board since


Construction of the building has been hindered due to lack of funding. Univer­ sity Development personnel are actively pUrsuing funding from PLU alumni and friends of the university, said Music Department Chair David Robbins.

And for the time being, plans for a new theater facility have been put on the backbumer.

Howevf'l", the Dian Foundation did not approve the request. Robbins said the corporation ''was not interested in fun­ dinp- a project in the Northwest region."

"We are optimistic that the alumni and friends of PLU will be sufficiently generous to contribute cash and pledges so that construction can begin no later than.fall I987," said Moe.

"Ea.stvold was created as a multi­ purpose facility," he continued, "and it doesn't really work well for anything."

Next Friday's Mast will present part two 01 this story detailing �hy students, faculty, and staff believe a new music building Is needed.

In the process, the plan for a visual arts center has been abandoned. Ingram Hall s i currently being renovated to ac· commodate the art department.

Now funds are being soughtonly for a new music building. Richard Moe, Dean of Fine Arts at PLU, said the music section was the greatest part of the plan eJ[pense-wise, so it "seemed the most fundable." He added that "the pressure of student needs for practice rooms and teaching studios" was also a consideration. The design for the building, by ar' chitect Ralph Johnson, won several prizes, and was submitted to the Dlan Foundation for funding consideration.

Campus to host fol k dancers

S i lver b e l l s r i n g i n g e a r l y

The u,niversity's original plan, ftnlt proposed in January of 1981, was to con­ struct an entire arts center to satisfy the needs of a growing arts program. The expense of such a facility has caused the plan to be broken down into three smaller buildings.

Traditional folk dances of Nicaragua will be performed at 7 p.m. Sunday in the UC by members of an award· winning troupe, Grupo Flor de Sacuanjoche. Members of the group are 14 to 20 years of age and study folk dance, music, and other arts at Nicaragus's Ns· tional Sd:.ool of Dance. Admission is $2 for students and senior citizens and $4 for the general public. Another perfonnance is schedul· ed for tomorrow at 8 p.m. n i Seattle University's Pigott Auditorium.


Despite tbi.s set-back. Moe believes President Rieke s i still strongly commit· ted to the construction of the new facility. "The music building is the number one priority for the university to build," said Moe.

i n Taco m a Dome fest i va l II may not be Halloween yet but al1la merchants and craUamen ara already getting reedy for Chrlatmas. The Tacome Dome will be the alte of one of the largest holiday food and gilt festivals on Oct. 23 to 27_ The main arena will be crowded with Christmas crafts and marchandlse before most retail stores have put up Ihls seasons decorallons.

Many of the Items al1l only anllable at craft festivals and the artists trtlval to Tacoma sometime. Just once a year. Everything from Chrlstma. tree decorations to children's toys to holl· day SWHtS will be for sale. Admission Is 54 for sdults, $3 for seniors and those 12 to 17 years old, and children under 11 ere admitted free.

So, if current plans are reallz.ed, the building may be finished by PLU's centennial - in 1990.

Museum shows Northwest art Works by Northwest artist Kenneth Callahan are cuttently on display at the Tacoma Art Museum, Pacific Avenue and 12th Street in downtown Tacoma. The show will continue through Nov. 30. Callahan was curator of the Seattle Art Museum for 20 years and this new exhibit of his work is in honor of his BOth birthday. The artist'llI paintings and drawings relfect the grandeur and violence of the landscape of the Northwest.

Student input needed by Movies CommiHee by Susan Eury Mast stall reporter

The ASPLU Movies Committee wanLs to make your day. Two fdms featwing Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry will be screened tomor­ row night in the CK.. Admission is 11.50. "The Gauntlet", scheduled for 7 p.m., and "Sudden Impact", showing at 9 p.m., portray Eastwood's character 88 a renegade police detective with • huge .367<aliber mapwn pistol. "Hany" tracks and captures criminal5 - usually walking a thin line between Iega] p� cedurtl and vigilante justice. . TolDOTrOw's presentation is part of the trend that Movies Committee Chair­ man Matt Misterek hopes to continue. Miaterek wants to feature more popular films this year than were shown in 1984·86. The committee will move away from movies like "Diva" and "The Secret Policeman's Other Ball" in favor of boll office successes. Two other fllms have been reserved for Halloween night and will be shown n i the UC during ASPLU's Spooktacular, a celebration featuring movies. dancing and food. "Terror ", described by Misterek as a "s1asher movie", and "Death Race 2000" will be screened. Ad· mission will be $1.


i clude Other possible upcoming films n "Silverado" and "St. Elmo's Fire" Each cost about $700 to rent. The committee can afford these more upensive rentals because Misterek has been able to work out a "package deal" with the movie rental agent. If five or aUr; moviea are rented from the same !Ie!"­ vice: aaid Misterek, then the price may be decreased by as much 88 11,500. Tbe committee received 14,500 this year to acquire moviea. While Mi8t.ere.k does not ezpect to make a profit, any ex­ t� funds at the end of the year will be used to rent a major second·run feature. He I18id it may be possible to show "B.werly Hills Cop" if ticket sales re­ main good. MisteTek was surprised that the com­ mittee was able to break even on last month's showing of "The Kar1Ite Kid". The committees problems now are not economic, but democratic. Misterek said not enough people are providing input about what fUms should be shown. "I don't want this to be a dictator­ ship," he said. " we need people to show up and say this is what I want to see." Misterek said any student may voice an opinion without being obligated to join the committee. Those interested in providing input should watch for movies committee meeting notices n i the cam­ pus bulletin.

Local singer's act reveals more than musical talent :::::====:: �0� � Sea Gal ley Next Friday's Mast will I••ture • review 01 the play.

by Susan Eury Mast staff reporter

The weather outside may be br�k but the Motown sound will take the chill off the Chris Knutzen Hall tonight with a hot mill of rock 'n' roll, rhythm. and blues and Top 40 music. The bearer of aU these musical tidings is Seattle's premiere blues vocalist Sam Smith. Raised in Seattle. Smith graduated from Roosevelt High School and receiv­ ed his early musical training in church. His music retains that gospel feeling provided by his Baptist rooLs and hie past membership in the Total ElI­ perience Choir. Although Smith's material is com' pletely secular, he sings with the joyous enthusiasm inherited from gospel music. The 26·year-old singer has appeared ex­ tensively at Seattle clubs and he per­ formed at this year's Bumoorshoot Arts Festival at the Seattle Center during Labor Day Weekend. Smith appeals to (I varieLy of musical LDSt.cS and he incorporates several styles in his performances. Everything from the Carpenter's "Close to You" to Mar· vin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" is fair game for this versatile performer.

Tonight's performance is billed as a dance-concert and students are invited to move along with the music.. Smith. himself, sometimes uses a few dance steps to liven up the stage. Appearing with the Evolution, a sil:· member group, Smith has been con­ sistently trying to hreak down stereotypes placed on him as a black performer. In a recent interview with The Rocket Smith said he approaches music with an appreciation for all styles and he hopes people will not try to eatagorize him. Smith said he hopes to make a dif­ ference with his music. Drawing on his gospel background, he war;Ls to get a certain feelins across to his audience. "It's the message in the song, but even more. it's the spirit. that gospel thing," he told Th. Roeht, "Attention is energy - if you put enough attention and energy into a thing, you'll definitely get a reaction." Tonight's concert should surely evoke a reaction from the PLU community.

The Mast, October 11, 1985


Editorial Declining black college enrollment is no less a problem at PLU as it is anywhere else statewide or nationally. Unless federal college aid programs make more grants available, our universities will continue to fill their campuses with less minorities. Over the last decade the federal government has reduced the number of grants ava;lable to college students, Although Na­ tional Direct Student Loans and Guaranteed Student Loans are still widely available, many students and would·be students are often hesitant to put themselves as much as $1 4,000 in debt to finance their education. a recent survey shows that a continuing reliance on loans over grants for the last decade, along with skyrocketing tuition rates have forced students to borrow more money in recents than did students of a decade ago. In the early 1970s, nearly two·thirds of all student aid money was awarded in direct, non-repayable grants to students. Today, nearly two-thirds of all aid money is loaned. This trend in the federal government's financial aid structure is directly parallel to the decline in black college enrollment at the state and national level. Unfortunately, the black population is being pinched the . hardest by the diminishing'avai lability of grants,

Food service director Bob Torrens 5at do.....n this fall and 5et up a checkli5t of improvement5 for food service, in­ cluding a 5alad bar, a deli bar and a tur· naround in the direction the food would be served. But what hc didn't order was II 20·foot monstT05ity placed in the UC Commons called art. Torrcns thought it would be a nice ideo to display some local tolent with 50mc con.scrvative oil paintings or other eye-plca5ing creations. But once again the PLU 5tudent body received anothcr r i 5ion. "free gift" without An eye.sore in a facility that already tII ke5 courage to enter and dine at only com unds problems . The idea to cover up the bare white wall on the we5t end of ning room wa5 great, but what the 5tarted as a great idca tumed out to be II 5ubject of controversy and 5hock for the schOO\'9 student body. Most people question, "Why do PLU 5tudents have to put up with an intersection of Com· mencmcnt BIlY garbagc in th front of thcir dining room?" The installation of thc art project was made by piecing together PLU aS5istant art professor Barbera Minus'5 ViCW5 on Chri5tianity, corporate industry and Ta(:oma, she 5ays, Beautiful.

Many students just 5hrug it off tlnd let someone else t.ake car of it - a com· mon happening in nearly every society today, But students do have a 5ay. Thc art exhibit would be fantastic ir it were an appropriate setting i displayed n whcre the pi e might go with at IClI.5t .somc of it's surroundings. Minas says she hopes that the project wiU be up most of the year, but let's hope it will be a permanent part of the PLU art displaya - only somewhere else on campus.

There is a rumor going around that a 20-foot nigh monster, hideous and ugly, garbage. is wandering i covered n through the UC Commons. Thi5 creature repels people wi th it'5 very presence, and compounds the hor­ ror by forcing the diners to watch it every second. in believe don't Personally, monsters. In reality, there is a piece of art on the east wall. This art is rather ugly, but few people have found themselves unable to eat because of it. Whether or not it 5hould be in the din­ room is a valid question, i ng First of all, people say that it isn't a very good piece of art because it's not beautiful. and therefore isn't a very good piece of art. I've got neW5 for them. It's not sup-­ posed to be beautifuL If thcy want beautiful. they can go buy t em l ve5 a pack of Skittles and admirc the pretty colors, or buy a poster to put in their rooms.

DON'T LOOK AT IT! It's not that hard to avoid. If you sit at the main tables, you have to tum your head to see it. If you sit at the round tables to the west, it's a good distance away, and easy to look somewhere else, And if you sit in the north wing, you can'tsee itat aU! And it doesn't even t.ake up im rt.ant space. As Mast columnist Clayton Cowl pointed out, Bob Torrens wanted art for the west waU. I hope he gets some. Any kind olart. Meanwhile, given the choice uf "Sun· day Morning" or wood paneling, I much prefer the more interesting, i f uglier, culpture.

Letters Yuppie capitalism accomplishes more than political protest

Wealth and Power , then what? by Bennett Sondker

To the editor

I'm afraid that the slogan " become Ci­ ty Hall" isju9t a catch-phrase used to give the impression that Rubin is ad­ vocating something besides political apathy. He does not seem to actually mean that y�u should " become City Hall" for any reason besides gaining prestige and the opportunity for greater self-indulgence. In reality, his message appears to be simply: practice self·indulgence while patting yourself on the back for doing the most you can (in Rubin's eyes) to help your neighbor and the world. It is ironic that Rubin wasC8st as a realist and Hoffman as an idealist, for Rubin recommends having complete faith that an economic model will solve l e you the world's problems for you whi practice self·indulgence. Hoffman ad­ vocates being skeptical of every economic model, and producing change through hard work using legal, proven methods that he has used effectively in recent years.

Jerry Rubin, in his debate with Abbie Hoffman, made a very appealing case. The idea of millions of us from the baby-boom generation amassing wealth and power and becoming City Hall las opposed to continuously fighting City Hall) sounds very e.citing. It sounded

OPINION like he had a very definite plan of action, and I wanted to learn more. I asked him (after the debate ended); " Attempting to change the status quo could easily conflict with acquiring power. Once you've 'become City Hall' it could jeopardize your position. How much wealth and power should you amass? When should you riskjeopardiz· ing your power and begin devoting money and energy to social problems?" Rubin answered that you never need to, for the change will come from within the economic system.

Anyone who listened intently to what Abbie Hoffman said last Tuesday would think that uruess students let their hair grow long, wear fatigues and Berkenstocks. and spend their time picketing political conventions, they are i our political system or con' not active n cerned about public justice. When will "yippies" grow up and learn that to get what they want, they must take active, positive roles in socie­ ty, and stop crying on street comers. This is the essence of conservative change, and it is preferable and more ef· ficient than the liberal idea of radical abandonment? If students would be students and stop being demonstrators, if they would study history, political science, and economics and attempt to understand

i tormed, then they how the status quo s would fmally figure out how to change the faceot society. Unfortunatdy, Abbie Hoffman never came to this realization. He grew up with Jerry Rubin at a time when the general public was under the opinion that the establishment in this nation was out of its mind. As feelings have changed and times have moderated, Ab­ bie Hoffman has been passed by. These days students realize that to get what they want they must take an i society. Consequently, active part n universities are graduating en­ thusiastic, work oriented. "yuppie . bound" individuals. But to make the generalization that i these successful. . 'yuppie" ndividuals i are not concerned with social justice s both unfair and unwarranted.

ASPLU staff back to nonnal operations by Kathy Lawrence Mast staff reporter ASPLU President Laurie Seine and ASPLU Vice President Jennifer Hub­ barel are glad PLU's student govern­ ment is more than just a two-woman show anymore. After administering the four ASPLU executive officer positions by themselves due to the resignations of Kevin Beggs Hnd Ty Dckofsky. the two are relieved that Ann Christiansen and Lynette Shaw will be laking over the positions of programs director and comptroller. Hubbard said prior to the elections she and Soine joked about their situa· tion, saying it was preparing them for the crises of life. Soine added that if they can handle running ASPLU by themselves, they can handle anytrung. Seine said that not only did !he and Hubbard learn a great deal. but they also discovered how much work it takes to run ASPLU. She said they both spent many \lIte nights and eight·hour days in the ASPLU office. Despite all the work, Soine said that their situation WIl9 not a negative ex· perience. She said the fact that there were four candidates for program direc· tor and two for comptroller shows ASPLU is ··not dying:' She added that through support and hard work, the senate helped ASPLU through its crisis. Christiansen, elected program direc· tor Sept. 25, sold that although she had to jump right into the responsibilities of her position, the positive attitudes of Hubbard and Soine made her transition much easier.

Shaw, who took over the office of com· ptroller Oct. 3, sold that ASPLU's new executive body makes 8 very cohesive group.

"J know how they ILhe senate) trunk," Shaw said. 'Tm an advocate for the senate. too. They·re a goodgroup.'· Since she took office, Shaw said her primary concern has been to organize the comptroller·s business. She said paper work has not been dealt with responsibly for several years.


"I want to get a system n i here that is continuously working," she said. Hubbard said that ASPLU's first and

most m i portant task is to become ad· justed to their roles. She said that the of· ficers have to learn to work as both in· dividuals.and team members. Then, Hubbard. said, ASPLU needs to follow the path of pursuing the best rela· tions with the student body and supply­ ing PLU with programs. Soine sold that ASPLU is working on earning respect from both the ad· ministration and the student body. She added that respect is something which needs to be earned and therefore cannot be accomplished in one senate term. "Students have to fight extra hard for respect,·· she said. Shaw said that improving ASPLU·s image is a goal that everyone in ASPLU shares. She added that with such a positive group of student leaders, she foresees PLU's opinion of ASPLU changing in the near future. ., ( trunk ASPLU has a lot to offer:· Shaw said, " We·redoing good trungs.··

Last Tuesday morning Tinglestad residents participatcd in a practice fire . What happened six hours earlier was not a practice , though. Around 11:30 Monday night the residents were evacuated from the building for an hour when a loud bang errupted prior to the sounding of the donn·s fire alarms.

He said the explosion came after he thwarted a prank organized by a group of students. Dohe also discovered green shaving cream outside rus room on the carpet. "The whole evening was an escalation of the board ride" ncident, i he said. "It was an unfortunate build-up of emotions." "I trunk someone will come forward" to accept responsibility for the Cascade blast, he said.

Choosing a long GlStance company is a lot like choosing a roommate.

It's beHer to know what they're like beforeyou move in.

Living together with someone for the first time can be an "educational" experience. And living with a long distance company isn't any different. Because some companies may not give you all the services you're used to getting from AT&T . For instance, with some companies you have to spend a certain amount before you qualify for their special volume discounts. With some others, voice quality may vary. But when you choose AT&T there won't be any surprises when you move in. You'll get the

same high-quality, trouble-free service you're used to. With calls that sound as close as next door. Guaranteed 60% and 40% discounts off our Day Rate-so you can talk during the times you can relax.

Sports Women booters grab first district victory by Fred Filch Mast reporter

The PLU womens soccer team booted their overall rocord to 7'-1 Wednesday with a 6·2 win over Evergreen State in their first district victory of the season. Freshman Sonya Brandt continued on her scoring spree with four goals. Brandt's season total is now at 15. Stacy Waterworth and Sandy McKay added two other goals. It was the Lute! third consecutive win. A pair of wins over the weekend gave the Lutes sole posession of first place in the NCIC with a 4-0 crmference record. Friday PLU Loppled Lewis and Clark 10-1 in what head coach Colleen Hacker called the best team effort of the ge8SOn. The Lutes scored goals on 10 of 29 shots. Brandt, Waterworth. and Beth Louthain each had three goals. "It was a tota1 team effort," said Hacker. "The intensity and passing were outstanding." Hacker made five position changes for the game. Freshman Gail Steru:el started as goalkeeper, which allowed Hacker to move the Lutes staring goalie Kathleen Ryan to right wing. Ryan con· tributed to the Lutes cause with a goal and an assist. The following day, the Lutes beat Willamette 2'(). Both of the Lutes scores were within the first 20 minutes of play. Brandt and Waterworth picked up goals forPLU. "It was a real unusual game," said Hacker. "The passing and ball control were real atrong, but we had trouble keeping our intensity throughout the game." The victory was a wstly one for the . Lutes as PLU forward Louthain suf· fered a knee njury. i "It's doubtful that she'll be back for the season," said Hacker. It came at a time when our for· wards never looked better. She was at the top of her game." The Lutes host Pacific today at 3:30 p.m. and Willamette next Wednesdayat 3 p.m.

Lutheran University held on to present head coach Frosty Westering with his 100th rLU coachin!; win liS the Lutes stipp«!. by Li:ifield, 14·6 before 8 standin!;.room only crowd. Although the skirmish was only II cross·divisionlll gnme in the Columbia Lca,,:ue standings, the conte�t meunt much more. PLU snapped the current single-longest NAtA win string n i the country at 1 5 games. The Lutes also returned the favor of a 24·10 loss last season at McMinnville, The Lutes climbed in this week's poll after knocking off Linfield, previously No. 2 in the nation, Since post·season playoffs are deter· mined by being one of the top eight teams in the poll at the end of the season, the victory for the Lutes was crucial after the 26·26 tie at Willamette the previous week. Turnovers hurt the Lute offense the entire game as drives to the Wildcat 12, 18, and 24·yard lines on three successive drives were cancelled by a fumble or an interception. PLU quarterback Jeff Yarnell con· m�cted on 16 of his 26 passes for 165 yards in the aerial department, but also tossed four interceptions, including: two to Wildcat defensive back Damon Liles. The offense did the job, but the defensc 8hined for PLU. While trying to stop Linfield passingace D8Vid Lindley, stunts and blitzes to the Lutes shut down both the run and the pas8. Linfield collected only 54 yards at halftime, while being halted for a mere 26 yard!! rushing for the game and 211 tow yards. There were an impressive 11 sacks recorded on Lindley for the evening, Mike Jay led the defensive surge for the Lutes, while defensive end!! Jeff ElstoD, Doug Zoutte and Jon and defensive lineman Tim Shannon added he�thy support. After a see-saw first QuarteT, the Lutes got on the scoreboard flJ'st when running back Mike Vindivich stutter· stepped one tac.kler at the line of scrim· mage on a counter and picked his way through the Linfield secondary for a 51·yard touchdown scamper. Mark Foege's point·after made it 7-0 with 10:56 remaining in the se.:ond period, A 4 1 .yard feild goal attempt by Foege went wide to the right just before the half after a roughing the kicker penalty put the ball on the PI.U ·18 and Yarnell found split end Steve Welch open fot a 26·yard pass roception, Yarnell tossed an interception to Un· field's Mike McAllisleron the first drive of the second half, but on the ensuin!; play, Tony S eet met Wildcat running back Scott Stapleton head·on, causinJt a


loose bait that defensive end Jon Kral quickly pounced on to set up the next Lute touchdown, Four plays nnd 56 yards later, YHrnell connt'(:ted on a 25·yard scoring pass to Welch, Welch finished the night with seven catches for I I I yards. " I had aU day to pass out there thank:,> to the offensive line," grinned Yarnell oller rolling up a total 37S yards offense against one of the nation's top pass defenses, "We rlln a lot of patterns to Ste\'e (Welchl where we huve a key on where he will be , but he has to find the openning. It's like playing in the sandlot."' Linfield finally got on the board in the final frame after Lindley engineered a 64·yard scoring drive in six plays with a 27·yard swing pass to wide open Scott Stapleton. John Gray's point ofter at· tempt was no good. It looked like the Lutes had things under control with less than two minutes remainig in the contest. but a Vindivieh fumble at the Wildcat 12'yard line gave Linfield one last hope. A 41'yard pass to Ron Popiel put the at the PLU 47. but an n i complete pass and an interception by Darin Ringenbach on the last play of the game sealed the win.

Peace Corps volun!eers are people pretty much like you, Peo­ ple wilh commitment and skills who have assessed their lives and decided they wan! 10 be of service to others in a troubled world, The problems our volunteers deal with overseas aren't new. Such as the cycle of poverty Ihat traps one generation after another because they're too busy holding on to get ahead. The debilitating effects of malnulrition, disease, and inade­ quate shelter. Education and skills that are lacking, and the means to get them too. Your college training qualifies you to handle more of these prob-­ lems than you might think. Suc� as teaching nutrition and health prac­ tices; designing and building bridges and irrigation systems; working on reforestation and fisheries pro-

grams; in!roducing better agricul­ tural techniques; advising small businesses and establishing coopera­ tives; or teaching math and science · at the secondary level. The number of jobs to do is ncarly as great as the number of vol· unteers who have served since 1961 : Nearly 90,000. More volunteers are being chosen now for two-year assignments beginning in the next 3-12 months in Africa, Asia, lalin Amcrica, and the Pacific.

Yes baseball fans, it's that time again. The playoffs. Where every college fan's fancy is to make it home from that 11-11:50 class to catch the opening pitch of the 12-noon playoff game. To let that assignment that's do tomorrow sit there on th(! desk until 15 minutes before class is to begin. The interesting twist to thi9 year's i major playoffs is for the first time n league baseball, a team from Canada. namingly the Toronto Blue Jays, have made the breakthrough moving the playoffs outside the United States. Along with the "Star Spangle<:i Banner" also comes "Oh, Canada," the Canadian national anthem. But don't stop there. Many other in­ teresting twists come into play. For ex­ all the ample, if the Toronto should way and win the World Series, who calls the team to congratulate them first: President Ronald Reagan or Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney? How about the propect of a freeway series between the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals? Or a batUe of the birds (Cardinals and Blue Jaysl. Before the New York Mets and Yankees were knocked out. we had the possibility of a subway series. And before the California Angels were knocked out. is looked like we could have aD 1-5 series with the Angels and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Some people complain that it is too Toronto with cold to have the playoffs the snow and all. But if those fair­ weather fans take a good. look at the map. Toronto is only 100 miles to the north of Detroit Tigers, who had the World Series in their park last year: Detroit. Cleveland, Milwaukee, and Toronto are all anout the same come fall and winter. What about those people who want a baseball team in Denver. Colorado.? At last look. Denver had to cover their field at Mile High Stadium from the notorious white powder for their football game with tha Dolphins. Personally, I like the thoullht of


i n

Toronto in the playoffs. People- going around saying, "So "hat do ya' think of the Jays chances, eh? Those Cardinals off. eh! look pretty tough?" "Oh, The World Series will be won by the team from the Great White North. Beauty." l Canadian crowds are much ike England soccer crowds. They bring huge flags out to the games and wave them. and they do simple chants like "Go. Jays. Go" or simply "Blue Jays. Blue Jays." The Canadian fan also has a sarcastic sense of humor. When the pennat races . were heating up. Toronto went to New York to play iun Yankee stadium. and while they played "Oh. Canada," the fans from the Big Apple booed. So when the Jays returned to Toronto'a ElI:­ hibition Stadium to play the Yankees. the fans stood and cheered throughout the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. "Eh." That's a funny thing. The Cana­ dian's always want a response to make heard. so they say sure they've everything. "Shall I take out "eh" the trash. eh?" "Shall we take a walk, eh?" But however the playoffs go, it's nice to know that the American pasttime can make some room for its neighbors to the north. Good day, eh? Beauty.

None oi these? ··Welfare: Who Should Be Entitled to Public Help?'·, presented Oct. 10, was the fir�t of three Nlllionlll Issues Forums organized by PLU and the Domeslic Policy Association this year. The DPA was formed to bring citir.ens togelher to discu!!s urgent public issues and share their ideas with local and na' tional policy makers. The format of the forum was unusual bt.'cau5C the audience was directly in, valved in the argument.!. Dr, John Schiller. PLU Professor of Sociology and Social Work. said the idea of the forum was for people to change from "p"rsonlll opinion to educated judge­ ment." He also said the meeting would ··help the public learn the public husiness of general welfare," A OPA article staLed that people tend to have different attitudes toward pr()­ gT!lms such as Social Security, Medicare and t\·ledicaid, programs for children n i school. and unemployment, The DPA hilS categorized these attitudes into three groups. Each involves a decision to which an individual must come. The first attitude holds that the government."We the people . " should guarantee that aU othera have certain basic neccs!!ities of life: health care,

minimum wages. a pension, education, and some housing. These would be pr()­ vided for out of tax money, A second point of \'iew suggests pro­ viding some social benefits to some pe0ple. Public assistance would be avai l able for those who really need it and benefits would be cut for everyone else. Finally. some believe that the welfare state should be trimmed back and the private sector. personal savings plans and charities. should onct' again assume the major role in providing social assistance, The panel consisted of five local per· !IOns from social services or other social organizations. Schiller acted as moderator, helping give information and evidence on the issue of public help, The first apeaker was Luanne Fox­ ford, of Washington Womens' Employ­ ment & Education. Inc.• a program that has operated for four years and has plac­ ed "500 women in jobs and taken them ,. off of welfare, she said. Lyle Quasim. Director of the Mental Health Division of the Department of Social and Health Services for the state of Washington, said, "welfare was a result of the corporate capitalistic system n i our economy," and suggested (people) "deal with the attitude of Social Security and make it a graduated tax." Maureen Howard, the Director for the Martin Luther Ecumenic:al Center, gave her view of the social s ituation from "the poor. homeless, and ,. unemployed.

In Washington State, 62 percent of the general popUlation and 51 percent of black children are in the poverty level. Next year the Social Security grant is expected to be "cut to 52 percent." Howard said. From PLU's Sociology department Diane Davis. who previously researched these issue!!, !laid we need to "focus on scarce fesoUree!I and the necessities of

food, shelter and jobs." She suggested that we stop the benefits to the cor­ porate and wealthy. as well as "digging into our own pockets" in the middle class, Tom Hilyard. acting Director of the Pierce County Human Services Depart­ ment stated, every citizen "deserves or has the right te adequate (ood, shelter. medical care. clothing. and the securities of life, " He said.

Mast reporter Despite .some concern over new computer use hours .....hich prevent all'night prol,'famming binges, the 6 a.m. to midnight schedulc has been working well, ac· cording to Iloward Bandy. dean of computing. Uand.v sllid they are still evaluating changes made in the computer cen�er this summer. but there seems to be no nl"(."(i for later hours Prior to this year, students could usc the computers 24 hours rt day.

Tom Jones. a senior computer science major, has not been happy with the new hours. "I love working on a computer all night long." he said. " Particularly when I'm working on a deadline." He said the new hours do not give computer users nexibility. "When working on computer problems you will sometimes run into problems you don't expect:' he said. " Now if that happcns latedt nightyou're sunk." And being able to get back on the computer the next moming doesn't always help. he said. "especially with closs a t 8 a.m." Bondy said the new hours will encourage better pro�:ramming. ·'There is II feeling in the way programmers work that the:e is an advantage to working more on a yellow pad and less on the terminal,'· he said. Some of the requests for later hours come from pe0ple who do most of their work at the terminal. That sort of work pllttern is not efficient. he said. ··1 '01 not sure we should reward it."

Lennie Sutton, a senior majoring in computer science who works It! a computer consultant in the user rooms, aaid he hasn't noticed an "overwhelming demand" for computer use, "The rooms are full," he said, " but not that full." Sutton said he W8!l disappointed when he first found out about the new hours, "I was one of the people who spent aU night in the computer center," Like other students. he has learned to adjust. ht' said, Because of the hourly user charge and the time constraints, he tries to have his programs written out before u!!ing the computer. so it takes less time. A!! someone who used to program all night. he hilS seen one benefit of the new hours. "Right now I'm really thankful (or more sll!ep." he said. Bandy said he has received a few comments from people wonting computet access late at night. He said he is prepan.>d to react to serious requests, "but not rumors heard in the hallway!!," " ] perceive the change as being for the good." he said, " If it is not. people need to get word back to the computer center."

Mast reporter A new student puss n;guiation at PLU has already been alteredalthough it has been in effect only seven weeks. Originally n i troduced in a memo from the Campus Safety office dated Aug. 26, the pass system involvt's " 1111 students requiring after hours access to buildings for the duration of the term tfa1I1, either foremployment or academic reasons." The only exception to this ruleare those students working under con· tinuous supervision of a staff or faculty r: l ember.

ministrotors have decided to make all current passes nulland void II!! of Oct. 31. In addition, no new passes will be issued prior to the 31st. According to a memo from the Direc' tor of Campus Safety. Ron Garrett. datea Oct. 9, University Officers have become concerned that "!;tudent safety as weU as security of our facilities is at risk." In order to tighten security on cam· pus, building passes will require the al>' proval and signature of the appropriate University Officer(President William Rieke, Provost Richard Jungkuntz, Vice Presidents Mary Lou F'enili (Student Life). Luther Bekemeier (De\'clopment). or Perry Hendricks (Finance nnd Opera· tions). New applicntions mu!!t be sub­ mitted by the student's employer or . supervisor.

"Ideally, from a security standpoint. we want to know whois n i a building," McLone said.

McLone also cited student safety as IInother reason for the pass system. The pass system is desiKlled to cut down on the number of unauthorized students in u building after-hours.

Garrett said if there is a great need to have a building open. the building hours will probably be extended. MCLone feels that Campus Safety's handling of the pass system was beneficial because the admittance pr!> cu!! waa sped up and fewerprofessors were c:alled at home in the evenings. He said that for the fIrst time a statistically accurate reading of student demand for after,hours building usage was obt.8lined. Campus Safety did not anticipate that student demand would be so great, said McLane. In addition to the 300 posses issued, about 100 other requests for pllSseS were submitlA.od but had not been approved.

History professor Jock Bermingham gave a lecture at noon explaining the nature of apartheid and the com­ pJextity of the problem in South Africa.

For one silent minute last Friday mor· ning, college students around the na· tion, including several at PLU, focused on problems f.ther than studies and grades. AttentiG,1 was instead focused on the racist apartheid policies of the South African government. The American Commitee on Africa had designated October 11 9S Campus Anit·Aparthcid Prol.cst Day. and PLU also planned a day of protest activities for students and faculty. The morning chapel service, con­ ducted by University Pastor Ron Tellef· son, focused on injustice in South Africa and �amibia. a neighboring country. Enc Bean, a PLU alumnus, rend a ser· mon given by black Namibian Lutheran pastor. Zephaniah Kameeta. In this sel mono Kameeta described the apartheid problem as a religious one, not a political Is.que.

He said cars were never towed in previous years during events like Dad's Day. Kurt Steffen also had his car im­ pounded during Dad's Day. He was a bit luckier, though.

He said public opi­ nion has already forced the Rellglln Ad· ministration to implement some limited sanctions out of fear that Congress would pass more severe sanctions. PLU student Ruthann WiUiamson said she thought apartheid was an im· portant issue. but not on the PLU cam· pus. Other students said they didn'L think there was enough student participation. Robert Hoffman. a junior. said PLU's small size forced people to become the actual "instigators of action." which was more uncomfortable than being a follower among many in a mass movement. Randall Stradling said that PLU was not as active as other colleges. "Besides," he said jokingly, "I didn't have any purple clothing to match my . armband "



The three cases of chicken pox reported last week may turn into an epidemic on campus. said' Judy Wagonfeld. self core-wellness coordinator of PLU's Health Center. . She said the disease is transferred by respiratory and oral secretions. If a person notices a sore throat, some fatigue. a slight fever. or coughing. the best thing to do. according to Wagonfeld. is to call the office to determine if an t!lt­ amination is necessary. Usually it is a 14 to 16 days for the incubation period from the first exposure until the noticeable rash will occur, mostly affecting the upper b<xiy with little red bumps. A person can not be m i munized against chicken pox, But for people who hllve already had them, it is highly unlikely to get them agotin, noted Wagonfeld. For those who haven't had chicken pox before, Wagonfeld gave some sug�� • e 10 u: a� �m� )!:� t���� :4���� di �;o� ��� � � ; r � "

blowing their nose. Other precautions include covering the mouth when coughing, and using disposable tissues. Also, drinking glasses should not be shared. Students that have chicken pox must find off-campus places to stay or they are sent home when possible, noted Wagonfeld. After five to seven days when the last lesion appears and scabbing has 0c­ curred the student may return to PLU. It is especially dangerous for adults to contract chickeu pox because it can turn into pneumonia. To date, the chicken pox outbreak seems to be confined to the PLU com­ munity and has not affected the gen&ai population of Pierce County. Wogonfeld explained.

PLU Family, Kids Center offers services to low income by Gerd·Hanne Fosen Mast stall reporter PLU's Fami l y and Children's Center was not con!lidered newsworthy to local television stations one year ago. But this week, Dn NBC film crew visited the center to film a television documentary. The center is located at East Campus and consists of four programs that pro­ vide services to people from all age groups in our community. Primarily. the services are offered to low income families in Parkland. Faye Anderson. the representative from the Division of Social Sciences to the Family and Children's Center. said that it is unusual for a university as small os PLU to have a presti!,-lous pro­ gram like this. Bob director Menzel. of CHOICE, Center for Human Organiza· tion in Changing Environments, launch· ed the project four years ago when star· ting a feasabili y study. Unta collected through this study in· dicated that PLU is located in a "'high

risk area," Anderson said, meaning that there is a high number of people in the low n i come category, a high crime rate' and ma.ny single parent families. Growing up n i single parent families, many children are home alone several hours in the afternoon. Helmi Owens, director of the After School Enrichment Program, �ASEP) at East Campus, said about her program that, " It is here primarily for kids from single parents families in Parkland. However. it does not exclude anybody." ASEP is cooperating closely with Franklin Pierce School District. I t offers the children from the Parkland schools a place to come after school and attend ac· tivities under supervision by adults. Owens said the kids get outdoor recreation. they write. draw, play and make things PLU students majoring in education are directly involved with the program. Owens pointed out that it is a great opportunity for the students to see a real life situation. Katrina Gilmer, a senior working in the program. said,"1 reallyke il it. I have

ASPLU ordered to repay $6,280 debt by Kathy Lawrence Mast sta ll reporter Although university organizations rarely forl;ed to repay budget overexpenditures, ASPLU mus� repay its 56.280 debt so it can learn from its mistakes. says Vice Presi· dent of Student Life Mary Lou Fenili. At their Sept. 26 meeting. Senators Trent Ling and Lynette Shuw (now ASPLU comptroller) said they believ· ed the university was deviating from its policy by cutting the overexpen· diture from this year's budget. They said their understanding of university policy was that posit�\'e and negative budgets wiped each other out at the end of the fiscal year. Shaw and Ling said if their understanding was correct. t.he senate should find out why the}" were being dealt with differently. Both made a plea to the senate to \ the issue of passing u budget until the following meeting in order to allow them enough time to research the issue. The senate then to hold off passing the budget until the following week. "I'd rather table the budget until we can answer these questions," Shaw said. During their next meeting, held Oct. 3, Ling and Shaw told the senate what they had found out. They said that Perry Hendricks. vice president of Finance and Opera· tions, told them that it was not university policy to carry over debts, except under very rare circumstances. Ling said they also approa.ched Fenili. He said Fenili, who oversees ASPLU's budget. told them that car· are

rying over their debt was necessary because they nceded to learn from their mistakes. After seeing Fenili. Ling said they spoke to President Rieke who sug· gested that the senate pass a budget of 5135,720 in which the 56,280 debt was subtracted. Ling said Rieke add· ed the provision that if ASPLU nced· ed money in the future for an impor' tant project. he would consider help­ ing them out. "He didn't make any promises." Ling said. "nut. I think we came away with a good feeling." After Ling and Shaw presented their findings to the senate, the group voted to aCl;ept Rieke's sug· gestion. Ling soid that by question· ing the budget and resear· ching the polic)', the senate made its point that it did not want to Ue treated u!lfairly. Fenili told the MQlJt that it is not atypica1 for her as a budget head to request repayment of a debt. She added thlit she did not think it was atypical for the rest of the universit.y either. "I had to cover their overexpen· diture and I just wanted to be reim· bursed." she said. Hendricks, on the other hand. said he was not sure why Fenili requested ASPLU to repay their overexpen· diture. He said general policy is that debts are wiped out in May at the end of the fiscal year. Technically, he said ASPLU's debt has alteady been paid. If a gross overexpenditure occurs. Hendricks said it is sometimes car· ried over as a disciplinary nction. But, he said, sucr. an action hns only occured a few times in the 12 years he has been at PLU.

always seen kids on TV who needed help, or heard about them, but not until last year did 1 realize that they were right hue and that I could do something to help them." University Child Care is a program af· filiated to PLU that takes care of 54 children from one tiU five years old. said Jeanne McDougall, program supervisor. She said that besides regular class ac' tivities. services like devel0pmental screening. full meal service and therapy are offered. Like the other programs. everything is paid for on a sliding scale. In practice this means that 87 percent of total cost has to be subsidized by various support

groups. McDougall also added that students doing work study at the center helps lowering the costs. The Marriage and Family Counseling Center serves families and individuals in the community, according to Dr. Charles York, director of the program. The center is the clinic of the PLU master's program in marriage and fami· ly therapy, and the counselors are students in this program. There is also a program for seniors called,"Second Wind." T:lis provides an opportunity for seniors to take classes in nutrition, computers, Dnd physical ex· ercise for a very inexpensive price.

CSO offers more jobs with additional funding by Katherine Hedland Mast reporter PLU's Career Services Ortice has severa1 off-campus job openings available through its state work study prog!'am. Because state funding was greatly increased for the program this year, it is possible to supply more work study students with n i teresting and . .....ell·paying jobs.

Beth Ahlstrom, Assistant to the Oirector of Career Services, said employers who hire students to work for them must follow four requirements. First of all, the position must be either I;arcer or academically related to Lhe stu· dent. Employers must pay salaries com· pDrable to what anyone else would receive. and student employees must be in nddition lO. not n i place of. their regular staff. Also, jobs cannot be politically or

religiously affiliated. These requirements make it possible for students to be hired by companies in their fields and receive much higher wages than if they worked on campus. Because the employers are reimbursed by the state for two-thirds of the salary they pay. the program appeals to them. There are currently 76 contracted employers, and over 100 students work· ing in jobs through CSO. But there are stiU many jobs that need to be filled. Some available positions include an of· Hce assistant n i a social services agency for 55.90 per hour. an accounting assis· tant that pays 56.49 hourly, and some tutorial positions in local sl;hools for 55.65 an hour. �\any other positions arc listed in the office. Ahlstrom encourages anyone in· terested in these [lOsiLions to contact hcr office. located in Ramstad, Room I l l .

PLU production satirizes the glory of battle by Susan Eury

Mast slatl reporter

Arms that kill and arms that caress are both featured in the PLU Theatre Department's current production, George Bernard Shaw's satire, "Arms and the Man." This tnree .act play, set one hundred years ago in Bulgaria, might. have been difficult for a lesso(!"peril'nced group of actors to realistically present, But PLU's accomplished thespians have once again provided a solid. though not spectacular, performance. Leading the troupe is freshman Theater major Anna Lauris who por· trays the melodramatic young woman. Raina. Compared to such proven PLU talents as Jacqueline Bonneau and Ja,y Craig. her performance lacks the range of e�on-ttrar- tt1rtWoJveterans bring to their roles · bULber character re­ quires much less.

Review It is Craig, as Captain Blunt.s<:hli, who delivers Shaw's message. As a fugitive Serbian soldier taking refuge n i Raina·s bedroom, he excuses his cowardice and. at the same time, analyzes the history of warfare, by explaining, "It is our duty to live as long as we can." Shaw's sarcasm seeps through most of the dialogue as he compares the clean romance of batt.le with the messy reali· ty. His characters thrill to the glory of war but cover their ears to drown out the gunfire. Bonneau portrays Raina's mother with her usual care to detail. including expressive face and body movements. Depicting a woman in her fifties is no easy task for any younger actress, but Bonneau is able to rely more on iitter· pretation of the character and less on make up to achieve the desired effect. Guest director Richard Edwards. cur· rently the Acting Artistic Director for the Empty Space Theatre n i Seattle, keeps the actors moving throughout the play to compensate for Shaw's typicaUy wordy ialogue. He is aided n i Act 2

when the action and humor increases with the entrance of Raina's father, played by Robert Gahs'gan, and her fiance Sergius. portrayed by Jonathan Greenman. Shaw uses these characters to entrench his self-effacing humor into the play and the actors respond with perfect complianc;!, Greenman's interpretation, cspeciaUy, captures the arrogance of a young soldier. Gahagan. like Bonneau, must realisticaUy portray a much older per' son. He docs so, although not quite so adeptly as his female counterpart, Sparse settings testify to the restraints which PLU Theatre produc­ tions are forced to comply. Guest set designer Pat.ti Henry doea well with the materials and space with which she h8.5 to work. Unfortunately, scene changes create more action than most of the production itself:- � - --".. . .. are intermissions minute Ten

necessary between acts to eel the stage and !ohey must be done in full view of the audience seated onstage. This in itself would not be too troublesome if scene flats did not faU over and minor characters did not appear between scenes to help the crew. One begins to feel more admiration for those carrying these obviousJy heavy seta than for the actors, themselves. But. this is nothing a new theatre building· couldn't fu::.

Theater workers set up make-shift audience risers on stage, large instrument cases and equipment. eases clutter the walls by the classrooms, studenUi cram their chairs into the (musical nstrutnent) i locker room to hold a sectional, percussionists arrive an hour early to transfer their equipment to the rehearsal area on the stage and t.he list goes on.

He believes people tend to take a short glance at what's going on around them. Ponto compared music to compositions of art. He said segments of a picture don't give a view of the entire work. "The best therapy ia to listen," Ponto


With each composition on a program, he said he plans to discuss what can be heard Often. Sousa marches or other overplayed pieces are ex.pect.ed. Ponto said he wants people to know the pas­ sion created. in each of his varied selections.

Included on the ensemble'e Tuesday ni�ht concert are full wind works, such as Fanfcue by Paul DuC&.S, 88 well as familiar band pieces. Also featured are separate compositions for the wood· winds and brass. The biggest strength of the entire group s i their energy and awareness of the music, said band member Steve Hagen.

Alcohol and drugproblems

Students trained to advise peers on drinking by Lance Kuykendall

Mast reporter

PLU atudent.s may soon be bette!' in· formed about alcohol and drug problems. Oan Coffey. director of the Health Center. said five students have been .selected to form a committee to help others with such problems. 'i'he students were chogen because they are considered approachable and comfor· table with helping others.

'Their role Is to act as Information and resourae people. not 8S counselor,'

-Dan Coffey, dIrector of the Health C�nter

"Their role is to act as information and resource people," Coffey said, "not as counselor." He said their training would allow them to direct atudents who need infor­ mation or help. Joe WoUe, SUpervUlor of family aft«'­ care at the Puget Sound Alcoholiam Center, led an aD-<iay workshop for the students Oct. 12. The workshop dealt with alcohol's effects on the body, the symptoms and progression of alcoholism, and the waya family and friends of alcoholics suppn-t and protect alcoholics from the consequences of their problem. Wolfe also instructed the group in in· tervention. which he dellCribed as "the process of motivating chemically depen' dant people into treatment," Finally, he directed thegroup through rol�playing and intervention situation. Wolfe said he haa 1 5 yeara uperience " in the field of alcohol and chemical dependence," snd speciamea n i the treatment of families of alcoholics.

He said he has taught similar workahops at the Universityof Alaska. Seattle University and Fort Steilacoom Community ColJege. By the end ofthe workshop, be said. the five students would hopefully be able toidentify the &igm and aymptoms of the diseases, 1ln81VeS' student concerns about drinking 'With 90me kind ofinfor­ mation, participate 1Vith inter"ventiona, and "promote others to do eomething about drinking and drug taking." ASPLU President Laurie Saine, one of the 8tUdents wbo attended the workshop, said it was "very worthwhile, very informative," "I don't drink and wasn't really aware of the prob-Iem of alc:obolisru," SoiDe said. " Programs such as this help people be aware and DOt immune to this," T. Bud McKinley, who alao attended the workshop, said the program was in· tere8ting, but felt Wolfe �t too much time talking about the extremes of alcoholism and getting alcoholics to ab­ eolutely refenn. "He should have addressed individual perSOrnll ' dependency and why people our age drink," she said.

Manners a must for proper Ladies and Gents· by M.rk Reys Mast reporter

The truly formal occasion, auch as the upcoming Autumn Classic, requires a formal code of conduct referred!.o as etiquette. Kathleen Black's book, MgnfUI,., fo" Moderns writ· ten n i 1939 offers the proper do's snd don't's of f«mal behavior. These rules should ffiake the formal evening, spent with a member of the opposite sex, an enjoyable ex· perience. They will guide you through the night's beginning, the pick·up from your date's house, through the dinner and dance. and finslly the drop-off back at home. Miss Black states,"Ir you're a wise young man, you've taken care to learn whst girls expect in the way of etiquette, and you've practiced it so thoroughly that your manners seem second nsture instead of something put on for the occasion. Hsving that 'easy, casua1 manner' that all fiction heroes seem to possess is simply knowing: etiquette so will thatyou never have to atop and think what todo!'" When pickingyourdate up for the evening, don't sit in the car and honk. It is proper to walk up to the door and knock. Your date, will not answer, of course because she is not ready yet. Don't be disturbed. This is a common ritual before any date. Instead of worrying. talk politely with the friend or relative who opens the door. When your dale does ap­ pear, offer a compliment about her apparel. Lead your date to the door afLe!' pinning the precarious corsage to the left side of the chest. A man should walk to the left of his date and open the car door for her. Then close it

for her once ahe is ns i ide the car. Ft-om this point there may be a problem with conver­ sation. This shouldn't last for long so don't worry. It is important to be polite throughout the evening. Just be friendly and everything will work out. Upon arriving at the restaurant. drop your date off in front of the building if there s i a long walk from the parking lot. She will wait inside for you to return. AfLe!' parking tbe car, lead your date to the lobby and go to the reception desk alone. The head waiter will lead you both to the table. Follow her to the table and pull out either one of the chairs, When your date is seated, you may seat yourseU. Soon, after you are both sitting down, take your napkin from your place setting, and lay it neatly on your lsp. Look over the menu intently, You might give suggestions that you think will appeal to your compa­ nion's taste. Thus we arrive at the place setting, The silverware is always placed with forks to the left of the service plate. Knives and spoons are to the right of the plate. with the cutting edge toward the center of the plate and the fork's tines up, Silver is arranged in the order in which it will be us· ed, beginning with the outside and working toward the center, The knife is used to cut food and to butter your bread, if there is no butter knife provided, When you are not using the knife for cutting, place it with the cut· ting ed", towards tP8 center of the plate.

Viewpoints Editorial

There Is something wrong on campus. But the problem Is··sludents just don't care. The past few weeks have been filled with anli·apartheid pro· tests, hljackings, earthquakes: yet how much related discus· sion was even mentioned among PLU students over the dinner table? Every campus has its own personality, usually determined by the backgrounds of its students; and PLU students reflect their conservative, sheltered upbringing, Universities were designed to be forums for the intellectual discussion of ideas. Student conversatlons at other unlver· slties may concern President Reagan's Star Wars system, U.S. Involvement in Central America, or the dilemma of earthquake victims in Mexico. But for some reason, any issue greater than thai night's dance does not surface among most PLU :>tudents. Anti·Apartheid day came and passed tne PLU campus on Friday with barely more than a whisper among students and the display of a few black armbands. Around the country, unlv�rslties held silent vigils, active protests, and plenty of discussion. The casual observer is left to think thai sludents could care less about national and international issues. There is nothing wrong with coming from an affluent, con· servative family. The problem lies with people who get 100 comfortable to care; too comfortable to raise their heads, look at the ugly world outside and reach out a hand to help. But why should students care? Many of the world's pro. blems will most likely never affect PLU's students. But we should care, if for no other reason, than to realize that those suffering are real people just like ourselves, It Is our duty as Christians to help them.

I b'UeSl> there comes a time in a stu· dent's academic and social career when you ask why you are really subjecting yourself to !Kl much stress as a young adult. It used to be "so easy", you think. Your brothers and sist.ers at home sit xed in front of the boob tube after fi school. worried about the next episode of Superpotato and the Tri·Star In· tergalatic Wonderthumps, while you stumble into your three tons of sewage stuffed into a 12·(oot square cubicle you call home and shake as you think about your next chemislJ'y lab report, your next essay test in history or the p� spects of being the gong of the bell curve on your last physics treadmill. It's just no� fair. Hey, it was never like this in high school. you exclaim. The only thing we i had to worry about was our next n­ service day. new ingenious ways to skip English class, or how to successfully run your car on gas fumes for a week. Now it's all·mghtcrs for the big debate tournament. a clynamic rendezvous with quarter·munching laundry machines a chat with every Saturday or everyone's mutual buddy - Mr. VAX. Stress hits all of us at times, but now University orficia19 are determined to in· crease anxiety levels. Can you believe they are letting a student plan a food ­ service meal? Recipe contest? This ly should be interesting. I'm sure it will be a growing experience to hKve something normal - like a Twi.nltie on a sesame need bun or a mystery hotdish. What about the poor PlU football squad? These men are subjected to more stress than any individual on campus (except ,wimmers and they have no will to feel pain soit doesn't count). n Tech, Playing against Lutes did everything the could to hold down the 5COre.

Federal deficit must be 'brought down' by lyle M, Jenness Bringing the mammoth Federal deficit under control will be the biggest political issue for the 1988 Presiden­ tial election, President Ronald Reagan's red nk i s i now flowing at. an annual rate of 210 billion, according to the White House's upwardly revised estimate. The deficit can be reduced n i two ways-budget cuts and I.aJl increases. No one, with the most ideological "supplysiders," really believes President Reagan's campaib"ll assertion that economic growth will dose the huge gap between revenues and spending. Reagan's own treasury debt has pre!ICnted tax in· creases to Congress and the public under such euphemistic labels as "tax reform:' "tax simplifica' tion," and "revenue enhancement." Just recently in Congress, various "flat tax" bills were introduced. One proposed by conservative "supp·

Iy side': Congressmon Jeck Kemp IR·NY) would vir­ tually dismantle the progressive income tax system based on ability to pay. A Democratic "modified flet Lax" propoaal by Richard GephardL ID-MO) would pre9Crve the basic structure of the progressive tax while lowering tax rates formost taxpayers. In exchange for lower tax rates for individuols and businesses, flat tax propoaals would close many tax deductions, exclusions, credits, preferential tax rate and deferrals of tax liability. Taxes would increase for many wealthy ndividuaJs i and corporations that now pay little or no taxes through skillful use of tax loopholes. Since the 1950s, a proliferation of tax breaks caused the corporate share of federal revenues to plUnge from about 25 percent to 8.5 percent. Over this period, the average company's effective tax rate, the percentage of its domestic income actual­ ly paid to the 45 percent to 27 percent. The statutory rate for business stayed at 46 percent. Corporations which in some recent years have avoid· ed any taxes include General Electric, which last year earned 52.4 billion butdidn't-pay a dime. Corporations got their biggest tax break in 1981 when Congress enacted Reagan Ad.-.ninistration's "supply side" Accelerated Cost Recovery System IACRS).

'ThenJ are stili those who contend that gulS wUl make us strong and butt9r will make us weak'

Vompanies were allowed rapid tax .....rite offs for their capital investmenLs instead of depreciating them to the traditional "uscful life" concept. One person's loophole, of course is another's legitimate tax relief. Most people agree, for example, t.hat the long-standing deductibility of mortgage in­ terest by homeowners serves as a good social and econommic purpose. The CongrC:9sional Joint Committee on Taxation released a study showing t.hat tax breaks allowed cor­ porations 'and individuals to escape $322 billion in taxes in fiscaJ 1984. These tax breaks, also called "tax expenditures" and "revenue forgone," were $247 billion for individuals and $75 billion for corporations. President Reagan's "trickle down theory" is to pro­ vide corporations with these tax breaks, t.hus creating room for added invest.ment for t.hem to expand and grow, as a result trickling down to you and me the future possible workera to benefit by the newly created jobs. Organized labor created opposition to this theory saying that it only benefits the rich while workers are being taken advantage of. In short; Tbey simply say, "They are tired of being trickled on." Most people assume that it. s i RonaJd, Reagan's fault t.hat we have a 2� trillion dollar deficit. We need not look further than to the Congress and the Senate. for the President can only push a bill to passagewith his political weight. The Congress and Senate have the POWCT of passage while the President only bas that of veto. So why do we have this defi�t? It comes down to one simple statement: Government spends more than it takes in, and tongress is divided over what the needs are of this country. Why is there division? In the final analysis, it comes down to " Guns or butter." Why the "guns?" Some point to the unprecedented military build up over the past 20 years by the Soviet Union. Other question how much is enough? and how much is too much?

Why the "butter?" Without the social programs some feel that if we don't have a solid nfrastructure i the whole system will collapse. They contend that so much money is going into the military budget that not only the fat from the social­ welfareprograms is being cut, but also the muscle. There are still those that contend that "Guns will make us strong, and butter will make us fat." Others insist that it's not just muscle they're cutting into (the social programs), but bone. A closer look at the facts shows in 1960, 32.3 cents of every federal. state, and local tax dollar was spent on defense. while major social·welfare programs took 20.6 cents of every tax dollar. In 1983, expenditures for defense took 16.9 cents of every tax dollar, whi l e the social programs �uired ' 33.1 cents. It isn't hard to see where the greatest. growth n i spending really s i . In 1960, John F. Kennedy. our 35th President of the United States, stated in his Inaugural Address. "That for only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt, can we be beyond doubt, that they will never be employed. I also firmly believe that t)'Tants are only tempted when the forces of "good" are weak. case in point, December 7, 1941." Last week senators voted on a federallimitation bill which would act as an attempt to solve this nation's 2� trillion dollar deficit. These senators voted in favor of a deficit·limitation bill. The bill which would require a balanced budget hy 1991, with deficit-reduction targets set for each year beginning in 1981, s i more or less throwing up a hope and a prayer. That's what the senatol's did by exempting Social Security from the freezing or cutting which might be necessary to reach the deficit-reduction goals. Social Security and related benefits account for 30 percent of federal spending. Interest on the national debt, the ceiling which was rai� as the deficitlimita­ tion measure was passed. accounts for another 10 per­ cent, and is an uncuttable experuw, unless the debt is reduced,Yo Therefore, under the Senate bill, some 40 percent of government spending would be eIempt from cuts, and the house if likely to exempt even more. The only big·ticket item left vulnerable to cuts would be defense, whi l e it might be argued, there are areas in the defense budget which could be trimmed, it looks like the old scenario, " more Wes.

Did you even know it was Anti·Apartheid Day on campus and around the na· tion? (It was). Well. I have some answers. First of all, 1 am the one who placed those flyers on the tables. If you read the flyer, you would know that it was basically an c.ppea1 to all students to take a stand against apartheid. I wanted students tom.ail the bottom half of it to Dr. Relke and the Reg1lnts as a way to let them know t.hat we feel PLU should d ivest ilgeif of all its holdings with companies that do business n i South Africa. There s i no campus orga�tion sponsoring this, the idea came from my head. I am tired of apatby at PLU I am not saying the entire campus is apathetic. There are several really active groups that aremaking a difference, such as Bread for the World and certain programs of University Congregation and InterVarsity. Hut these ate not enough. We have over 3,000 students, and yet the total Dumber of active students surely does note.xceed 100. Students should be the ones who try and change the apathy of the public toward injustice, not t.he ones who are themselves apathetic. It is past. time for PLU students to make a· lial moral statement against apartheid. We need to be pUlting pressure, both indirect and direct, on the ad· ministration and the Regents to divest. Letters expressing our concerns need to be sent to administrators and Regents Ithe Regl"nts' addresses are in thec.atalog pages 118-119). Proposals need to be passed in ASPLU Senate recommending divestment to the Regents {any senators reading this please take notel.

And finally, banners need to be made and demonstrations 8taged during Regents' meetings to show that we are serious·about this (more about this at a later date). I think that Abbie Hoffman put it very well when he said to Jeny Rubin during the recent debate. "You can say whatever you want, Jerry, but what s i really Un· port.ant, and what makes a difference, is the way you live your life." Does this sound familiar? Perhaps it should, since it y a f .J a life o! empty cliches and listening to words on Sunday morning. He called us to a life of service; he exhorted. us to "hunger and thirst for righteousness"; he called us to follow him in ushering n i the kingdom of God. In closing, I have a few questions to ask each ofyou. I hope that you would take them !lCriousiy, think about them, make some decisions, and then act on these decisions. The fll'st question I ask is, do you think apartheid is a legitimate form of government? If you answer "No" to this, tben ask youself whether Jesus would have felt aparthied was a legitimate form of government. If you answered "No" to this one, then ask yourself why PLU, a Christian college, s i supporting apartheid by investing in companies that do business with Botha's white-minority government. And finally, if you cannot think of a good reason why we should support this government, then ask what we as a community should do about it.· These are the kinds of questions I have asked myself, and Stv.dent$ Again$t P. L. U. Apathy is only my fll'st. step in trying to change the world for the better. Please help be tQeliminate the truth in my letterhead.

vide constant reassurance and support. Last season, the Lutes had pro­ blems drawing fans due to their poor record, and that can hurt the con­ fidence of a team. But this season, the Lutes are drawing rowdy, vocal fans, which helps them stay pumped up during the game. All of this positive backing is not to say the Lutes don't stumbled once in a whi l e. After soundly thumping Lewis & Clark in their first game Wednesday night, the Lutes came out flat in the second game, allowing their op­ ponents a 10-0 lead without a posses­ sion change. But the only way to find ou� about the real Lutes voUeyball team is to see them in action. It may nol be the same caliber of volleyball as America saw in the 1984 Summer Olympics. but it is exciting and captivating in­ teresting to watch ITOm a stat.egists viewpoint.

Stacy Waterworth scored early for the Lutes on an assist from Kathleen Ryan. ryan began the season at golakeeper, but started at right wing against Pacific. "I was really pleased with her perfor­ mance,"said coach Colleen Hacker. "I thought she did a good job." Pacific rallied with 16 minutes left to tie the score. The Lutes are now 4-0-1 in conference and 7-4-1 overall. "We controlled the ball for about 80

minutes,"said Hacker. "We totally outplayed them." T}.e Lutes outshot Pacific 30·10. "We certainly had our opportunities. ·· said Hacker. "There were times ....e . held onto the ball too long."

Men booters league streak snapped by Fred Fitch Mast reporter


Just a quick comment about the football polling ayet.em. Yes, the Lutes fell to No. 8 in this week's NAIA Division II poll and it just goes to show how worthless the poll­ ing system really is. Here is PLU, who goes and blows out Oregon Tech 55-14_ Yet the Lutes fall to eight and Lin­ field, who barely got by Willamette, hangs right in there at No. 9. I realize that all the teams ahead of the Lutes have played. more garoes are still undefeated, but upset the previous No. 2 team. Doesn't that account for anything? In the pollsters eyes, it must not.

The PLU men'a soccer team had an 18 game conference winning streak snap­ ped with a 1-0 loss to Willamette last Saturday. The Lutes gave up the lone goa] in the 718t minute of play. PLU outshot Willamette 26-9, but both a breakaway attempt a shOt ITOm close range at an unoccupied caseSix play(jr8 didn't suit up because of injuries. The Lutes played a man short for 20 minutes when Marty Ambacher was red-eatded. Ambacber will also have


missed and

tositout the Lutes next game. "We dominated play_ but lost our composure," said coach Jim Dunn. "I think we overlooked Willamette. ,. Saturday the Lutes host defending district champion Simon Fraser at 2:00 p.m. PLU dropped a 2·1 triple-overtime decision to the CLnnsmen in year's district playoff. The Lutes are led by Kevin Iverson who has six goals and two assists, followed by Tor Brattvag with four and six assists. Both have 14 points for the team. Wednesday the Lutes travel to Evergreen State.

Women's soccer conference record remains unblemished

Sportswrap What a difference one season makes. Last season, the Pacific Lutheran University women's volleyball squad was the laughing stock of Northwest small colleges. It had the spirit and the talent, it's just that the results never seemed to \;!ad to victory. This season, the Lady Lutes lOOK like a totally different team. They have already bettered their 4·24 mark of 1984 with a 9·14 record 8.!1 of Wednesday. Many of the faces are the same. but it's as if they've taken off masks and have begun to live up to their potential. The newest face in the Lutes preseason volleyball camp this year was that of coach Marcene Sullivan, who took over the reigns from Kathy Hemion WteI' she resigned last spring. Sullivan brought some pret.ty im­ pressive credentials with her_ She played her college volleyball at ShOl'eline Community College where she earned regional AACC all·star honors. Sullivan also competed in seven national tournaments with the University of WashingUln and the United States Volleyball Association teams. Sullivan was the head women's coach at Shorewood High School captained Lhe 1982 European Tour team. Now Sullivan's task is to coach the Lutes, a strong and willing squad. The spirit and drive of this squad is unmatched by any volleyball oppo­ nent entering the confines of Memorial Gymnasium. No matter if they are winning of losing, these gals are intense in both their play and their determination_ The Lutes were hurt early in the season, losing sophomore Libby Allen and senior Linda McBain to temporary injuries. McBain is back no.)V and Allen's coming along, add· ding to the bench atrength of the Lutes. The bench strength. There's something not to be overlooked. Sure, the starters are important, but so are the players who not only give their teammates a rest, but also p,?"

lutes steamroll Oregon Tech Owls, 55-1 4 by Clayton Cowl Mast stall reporter

There's :I new piece of solid gold muchinery at PLU, The only thing special about it is that it takes eleven m�n to drive it. Eleven men? A piece of machinery? Yep, It's the PLU steamroller. After some gear-jamming and grin­ ding, PLU put the roller in gear and squashed Oregon Tech, 55·14 in a Col· umbia Football League cross-()ver game at John F, Moehl Stadium in Klamath Falls, Oregon. The victory propels the Lutes into first place in league slandings after UPS downed Simon Froller.

Foru m focuses on i n fo systems by Kathy Lawrence

Mast staff reporter

PLU held its finlt Presidential Forum in E8lItvoid Auditorium on the issue of "Technology and Uberal Art&: a Dialogue in Transition." Robert Stivers, professor of religion, said the forum was constructed around the idea that a tiberaJ arts education should promote a student to question everything, including technology. Stivers, project coordinator for the forum, said President Rieke wanted PLU to deal with the issue of technology. Therefore, Stivers said that PLU and the Consortium for the Advancement of Private Higher Education, a gl'Oup of foundations wich help small colleges fund such projects. set up three presidential forums. 1\I.esday's forum dealt with informa­ tion syatems. The other two forums. to be held in JanulU}' and April, will focus on biomedical technology and the ef­ fects of Weatem technology on the deveJopment of third world nations. Stivers said that technology is one of the most important forces in the modern world, yet people do not seem to quea· tlOn it. "'We pay absolutely no attention to it." Stivers said, " But, those n i volved in s liberal arts education should question it." Stivers said that although there ia no measure of success and failure for the forum, he had hoped for a larger faculty and student turnout. "I am puuJed why a subject of auch importance doesn't attract more t.ur­ nout,"' Stivers said. (See related editorial on page 4).


President Rieke said the forum was a lIuperior event with a high quality in­ teraction between the disciplines. But, he said he was disappointed in faculty and atudent turnout considering classes were cancelled so that everyone could attend. He added that perhaPII the forum was scheduled too close to mid-terms or was not sdvertised and explained well . enough. Whatever the case, Rieke said, students not only lost a lot of tuition dollars, but also missed a ricb, unique opportunity. Classes were ::ancelled in order that faculty and students could attend the varioull presentations. The fust address, entitled "Informa· tion Technology; Promises and Paradoxes," was given by Steve Thrasher, associate professor of business administration. Thrasher discussed the co-eristence of man and machines. He said that machines can enhance the quality of life by m.eing man from " mental and allowing him more personal time. Yet, Thrasher said there are some things which man does better than a machine. He said it is important to establish a "balance" between tbe two. Thrasher said that some bad side ef­ fects come with technology. For enmple, Thrasher said that although the automobile provides mobiliy and personal freedom, the pro­ blems of pollution, noise and urban con· gestion were not predicted. "We aren't that amart," Thrasher said. He said one must consider the idea o("no pain, no gain." Michael Bananan and Christopher Spicer of the communication arts department compiled the second forom


address entitled "Technological Overload: Paradoltieal Influences on the Communication of Culture." Spicer, who read the pr8gentation, identified the two major side effects be and Bartanen flOd with technology. First of all, he said that technology blurs the distinction between informa­ tion and knowledge. Information is a pattern of stimuli. Spicer said. but knowledge is the actual application of information to solve pro­ blems. Confusing the two. he said. can

PLU's financial aid office awarded, nearly SI million more student aid than is in its budget, but AI Perry, director of financial aid, says it's PLU's practice to award more than is in its budget. He also anticipates that the financial aid office will recover the S908.000 dif­ ference by May. Perry said the university will award several hundred thousand doUars more in financial aid each year. projecting that t.he sum will be "recaptured" through students that, for several reasons, don't use the aid swarded to them. , The $908,000 difference in financial aid awarded and actual funds available was caused when the university under­ estimated the number of students who would accept financial aid from PLU this year. At the time awards are made in the spring "we estimate how many students are not going to show,·' Perry said. . Nearly $600,000 of tbe $908,000 has already been recovered througb no-show students who decided not to attend PLU this fall Perry said. More of the money will be recovered from people who don't come back in the spring, and from students who don't take enough credits, The fmancial aid office also recoverll funds when students fail to sign for their loans. The financial aid office tends to be le­ nient about tbe time atudents have to sign for their loans, Perry said. Most loans are signed during the fust two weeks of scbool in each semester, Those students who have not signed during tbose first two weeks are then personally contacted.

Too few seats l ose Koo l a n d G a ng concert by Kathy Lawrence Mast stall reporter

A difference of 4,000 Beals caused PLU to lose out on a chance to hOSl a concert with Kool (l;.nd the Gang and said 52,000, approximately earn Cameron Clark, ASPLU's entertain· ment committee co-chair. Clark explained that the Alaskan pro­ mOler for the band's tour. Dynamic Pro­ ductions, had booked a concert at the University of Washington for Oct. 31. He said that due to an athletic event which took precedence, the university cancelled the concert. It was then that Sandra Gardner from Dynamic Productions called ASPLU and asked if PLU would be interested in providing a facility for the concert, said Clark. He said that he and Gardner discuss· ed a 51200 fee for the use of PLU's Olson Auditorium, a percentage of ticket earnings and a number of student discount seats.

Unfortunalely. Clark said Kool and the Gang laid Gardner they war-ted lO i a larger facility. perform n ASPLU Program Director Ann Chris, Olson explained tiansen that Auditorium seats only 3,000 people. She said the band usually performs sold out concerts for audiences of 8.000 to 10.000. But, said Clark, PLU would still have played host to the band if the SeattJe Arena had not bumped another act in order to accommodate Kool and the Gang on Oct, 31. He said PLU was the only other facility available for that date. The SeattJe Arena, seats 7,000 pe0ple, he said. Since the concert would have been profitable for PLU, Clark said it is un' fortunate that the band made other ar­ rangements. He added that Gardner told him she hopes to work with PLU me. another ti "They're IKool and the Gangl one of the hottest bands in the country right now in album sales," Clark said. Although ASPLl' suffered a substan­ tial fir.ancial loss last year when it

brought the rock group Toto to PLU, Clark said he would like to see another in Olson big·name band perform Auditorium. He said the problem with the Toto concert was ASPLU's inexperience. He added that ASPLU was so excited about bringing the group to PLU, that they failed to pay attention to the fact that the band was having difficuJty sell· ing tickets nation-wide. "It was a learning experience," said Clark. "I don't consider the concert IToto) a failure. The public numbers were low, but 900 to 1,000 PLU students showed up and had a good time." Ideally, Clark said he would like to see ASPLU bring one big-name band to campus this semester and, if the first concert goes well, another one in the spring. He added that his hopes depend and upon the senate, the executives . ASPLU's budget. After the financial losa of Toto, Clark said a number of students complained that they wouJd rather see ASPLU bring a few small bands than one big­ name band. Clark said that on Oct. 12,

ASPLU brought Sam !:)mith, a popular Seattle singer, to campus and only 150 students attended the concert. Clark said perhaps the low turnout in· dicRtes that it is better to bring a big band that students are willing to see. He added that Mary Lou Fenili, vice president of Student Life, attended the Sam Smith concert. He said that Fenili told him she loved the concert and that she supports ASPLU undertaking such projects. "Wh� kids don't come and support ASPLU's events and Mary Lou does, there is something wrong," Clark said, i very supportive, he said. If Fenili s ASPLU comes up with a reasonable pro­ posal for a good concert, Clark said he doubts that the administration wouJd oppose it. Clark said he receives phone calls every day from entertainers and pro­ moters who are interested in PLU. He said he bas to wait and see how the financial issue works out before he can act on anything, "We (ASPLUI know what we have to do next time," Clark said.

Spooktacu l a r adds ' s p i rit' to H o mecom i n g by Oavld Steves Mast news editor

Next week's homecoming celebration will resurrect a Lute Halloween celebration, while burying "The , Homa:omingeve dance. Stomp." the traditional "Spooktacular." a Halloween celebration, will be one ?f l e major events of "Let's Go Crazy, Homecoming Set for Thursday from 8 p.m. to midnight, 85. SpookLacular events will include a masquerade ball sponsored by J-Iinderlie Hall and a spookhouse, to be run by the homecoming commitl€e. The ASPLU movie committoo will host "Monster Movies and Munchies. " Kriedler Hall will sponsor a Polaroid picture booth and other campus groups ....iII host additional events and booth�.

The Spooktacular Halloween event originated at PLU in the late 1970s, but hasn't been held here for about seven years, recalled Marvin Swenson, director of the University Center and Student Activities. While the homecoming committee is taking a step toward tradition with the revival of Spooktacular, it is breaking tradition by replacing "The Stomp." In the past a live band bas played for The Stomp, but this year recorded music will be played at the event, " Rock the Casbllh." set for Friday between 10 p.m. and 2 s.m. in the University Center. Dance music will be programmed by KNBQ disc jockey Mark Mayo. The dance will include a laser light show and a fog machine. Stradling said. "We tossed arourd the idea of using taped music rather than a live band, and felt that we could put on a ,

better show with the laser light show as opposed to a live band," Stradling said, He added that hiring a KNBQ personality to host the dance will cost ASPLU 5500, about 51.000 less than a band would cost. Casino Night is also on the agenda for homecoming week. Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m. the Cave will be transformed into a "Las Vegas·style gambling casino," Stradling said. Play money will be used, and a variety of prizes will be offered for those with the largest winnings. Homecoming week will culminate Saturday with the homecoming parade at 11 a.m the PLU·Whitwort.h " football game, and homecoming entertainnlent and royalty announcements at the game's halftime.

H a l loween History

Trick or treat replaces human sacrifice rites Long after the church had triumph­ ed over organized paganism, country people everywhere in Europe oon­ tinued their ancient practice of placating local spirits. The parish pricsts tolerated these goings even jf they did not approve of them. But soon the church stepped in and took 8 stand on this issue.

Among all the festivals celebrated, few have stranger histories than Halloween. It is the eve of All Hallows - or Hallowfn8s • or All Saint's Day. And as such it is one of the most solemn festivals of many churches. Although Halloween has become a night of frolic which people take only half seriously, its beginnings were quite solemn. The earliest Halloween celebrations were held by the Druids in honor of Samhain, Lord of the Dead, whose festival fell on Nov. I. Horges and human beings were sacrificed at this time. The hUl:'lan victims were usual­ ly criminals who had been rounded up for tl:.e occasion. Those to be spcrific­ ed were confined in wicker cages made in the fonn of huge animals. The cages were set afire by the priests and the prisoners w'ere roasted alive. This practice was outlawed by Roman command after the conquest of Britain. In spite of this suppression. the old rites surviv­ ed. For centuries the Druids con­ tinued their sacrifices. but with black cats. They believed that these cats were the familiars of witches. or even witches themselves. since it was believed that they would transform .into black cats.

Over the last few centuries, from the 1500's to the present, this fear has diminished quite thoroughly.

The Mast, October 24, 1%5


Editorial This year's first Presidential Forum held Tuesday showed four times more faculty than students in crowds that only half filled Eastvold auditorium. But this didn't come as any surprise. Academic lecture presentations have never been well attended at PLU. The speakers presented their materiai in a lengthy, in depth, rather dry manner which would have held the attention of only the most dedicated students. After listening for a white, It seemed that the lec­ tures were geared more for faculty than students. University professors make their living Indulging in and searching out this kind of intel lect. But students think in practical terms. The majority are looking only lor knowledge they can use in their first job after graduation. If the Forum was mainly for faculty, then why cancel a full day of classes in the university to hold a program that could have been given to faculty on their own time. If it was just as much for students, then present It In a manne, that will better attract and hold the interest of the students. The idea for the forum was good. The subject and material were good. The speakers had researched their material extremely well. But the presentation of the In­ formation was hopelessly dull. We live In a visually exciting society where students have been born and raised on television. No matter how good the content of an event is, it simply will not draw a crowd unless it is visually exciting and entertaining. Faculty members could have included many more elements into their presentations to make them ex­ citing and better hold the attention of the audience. In fact, professors teach their students to include audio visual materials in their public presentations. Speakers could have shown slides, movies, diagrams, or anything visual, rather than simply stand behind a podium and talk at the audience. It is nol thai a presentation must be light and humorous to get a high student turnout, but, for the most part, students will not come to an event that pro­ mises to be as entertaining as a classroom lecture. Another reason for the Forum's low student turnout was the publicity it received. Though there were plenty of flyers placed around the university, professors could have taken more time to explain to students what the . Forum was all about. A lthough students were encouraged to attend by their professors, It was obvious that many chose not to go simply because they didn't understand what It was all about. Is there any way to attract a high student turnout at such an event that holds so much potential. It seems fairly simple. Make It something the students will be excited to at· tend; that promises to be enlightening, informative, and stimulating. The same subject matter and content can be suc­ cessfully presented, but In a much more visually ex­ citing format.

"College students don't know what stress is," a friend of mine said. What does he mean? College students are stressed. We have finals. We have term papers. Our days are booked solid from the time we step out of bed. But then I thought about what else he said. "Just walt till you have three kids, house and car payments, and then your paycheck runs out." He was right. The pressures we feel are real, but they are not critical matters that would destroy us or cause us to lose our Jobs If we failed. When midterms and flnala come, we must keep them In perspective. There Is plenty of time to worry about real dangers after we graduate.


Fitness Center offers daily show by Clayton Cowl

Mast staff reporter

Bored? Looking for amusement? A new facility on campus is sure to cure those mid·semester blues. Dubbed the Names Fitness Center, PLU's newest addition is an offspring of the fitness revolution pointed at m.a.kiDg every individuaJ a life-like represen· tative of the Incredible Hulk or Christie Brinkley. I've been in the fitness center every day of the week. aearching for either one, but all I found was one Incredible Sulk and a rude mode! of a lumpy Jane Fonda. Naw, not really. But at certain times, the fitness cneter appears to be a comedy show rather than a workout ""''''. The idol of every beginner is the established athlete. Athletes come in different molds-different shapes, dif­ ferent styles and different qothing. The m08t conspicuous, of, is the football player. Sweatshirts and sweatpants are a must. They never forget to slip on their pair of Adidas turf shoes and some loose-fitting socks. The objective of every football player s i to bench press enough weight to make the bar bend, or at least crsck. But after that, it's all right to stand around and scope out the femaJe athletes Of the pseudo-aerobicizers plopped down on the stationary bikes reading a Harlequin romance novel.


Soccer players are spotted rather easi­ ly, too. Just check for some dirt on a gold PLU soccer sweatshirt, some Nike all-sport. cleats tied together and slung over the shoulder and a couple of go!d teeth in t.he jaw. They'll be the ones do­ ing a few leg presses or kicking a soccer ball (most soccer balls will be surgically attached at .the toe). Swimmers have chlorine-infested eyes, ""hile crew members ploP down on that funny looking seesaw with a bicycle wheel on one end and crank away for hours on end. Baseball players and basketball players have it hard. Sn i ce they can't figure out what they use more-their up­ per or lower body, they are forced to work out on both. The telltale factor will be the high·top court shoes for hoopsters and a hat for baseball players. Baseball players would crumble without a hst on their head. The aerobics class is always a happy addition to the fscility for if nothing else, comic relief. PLU women somehow suck themgelves n i to a pair of lavender or pink tights and I�g-wanners and the XXX-large "I'M AEROBICIZED!'· sweatshirt until total fitness levels have been attained. Ultra-fitness levels are reached when the sweatshirt proclaims Pacific Lutheran University football with their boyfriend Harry Csnary 's big number 95 plastered on back.

Dear Editor. I would like to comment on your editorial in last Friday's issue of The Mast. I think student.!! do care about what's going on in the world around them, regardless of whether or not they talk about it during dinner. Also I resent your stereotyping of PLU students as ·'affluent, conser· vative and sheltered." With over 70 per· cent of the student body receiving finlln· cial aid I find it hard to believe that we are "affluent." As to being conser­ vative, so what? Should we be embar­ rassed or ashamed that we are not liberals? No les9 a conservative than President Reagan has condemned spar­ theid and hijacking and sent aid to ear· thquake victims n i Mexico.

What about being sheltered? Perhaps you're right on this point. If we put on black armbands and protf!9t llpartheid while ignoring genocide in Afghanistan, the use of slave Isbor n i the Soviet Union, and the torture and imprison­ ment of political prisoners in Cuba and Nicaragua, then we are indeed 9helt.ercd. Finally I would like to borrow frOln your last editorial " ... we should care, if for no other reason than to realize that those suffering are real people just like uurseives, it i9 our duty as Christians to help them."

How students afford college by Carla T. Sayalll Mast stall reporter

The studentdollar. It is a pNlcious commodity in the current age of rising tuition costs. Some students still receive coll� money from theirparents, a rich aunt or grandmother. Most however, rely on a variety of loans, scholarships, and work study programs. PLU students are no different, according to A1 Perry, direc· tor of PLU's flllancial aid office. Seventy percent of PLU's students receive some type of financial aid, he said. That percentage proportionally average compared to past years, Perry said, but the figure is sure to rise. "At this point in time it's probably the same. As we along we'll probably add some more and it'll go up:' he said. Most students are eligible for a varit'ty of aid money, but 2ach requires a different level of need. perry said most aid alloca· tions are based on family income, assets, number of family members. and number of students in college. Financial aid geta a dirty name becauge of the word " need," he said. Some studentscome from families who can afford to put ther.l through school but have an m i mediate cash flow pr� blem. Those parent.s can apply for a Parent Loan which allows them to borrow up to $3,000. The averagefamily who applies for aid has an income of $32,000 a year, he said. The university also offers a variety of scholarships programs. Funding for these programs comes from unrestricted gifts aDd donation� from PLU Q Club members. The mODey is channeled into an annual fund which underwrites tuition cost.s, provides scholarship money and helps maintain the university budget. In the years Perry bas been at PLU, he said he bas seen profile of an average coUege student change considerably. Some enter college much later first time around. Others wait and retum after raising a family or switching careers. In almost all cases, Perry said, the averagecoUege student "dDell not have a lot of ea:tra money." Spending money is figured into a fmancial aid award. "We give them reasonable spending money for theyear. .. he said. $1,020 for pe!'aorW To meet theirebd of the financial aid bargain student.s must contribute a portion of their aummer job money to the aid award. Freshmen are requiTed to save $700 and retuming student.s,

"With any kind of reasonable summer job they should be able to save. We anticipate most of tbem are living at home," Perry said. 'The availability of financial aid s i not always the main deter­ mining factor in chOOsing a college or university, to Perry. Students aregenerally attracted to specific academic programs, tho peraonality of the institution and other campus aspects. Students generally negotiate for aid based on the coats of a particular institution which offers an appealing program, he said. " The programs that schools have to offer have a bearing They really wantthe program and as long as the flgUfes we of· fer are in the baUpark, they'U take it," he said. There are those students, however, who apply several places, collect aid offers and then make their decision based on available money, he explained. "There are books they can buy that give a brief de9Cription of school, types of aid, number of student.s and so on," Perry said. PLU's tuition is in the middle of the cost spectrum. Tuition costs generally mirror the cost of living in various geographic regions. he said. While education may cost more in general Perry said he believes it is still available to students who are willing to go to a community college, for either aU of their education, or a portion of it. "I don't see any barrier at a community coUege. Anybody who really wants to go to a community college can do it," he said. " The tuition gap is between private and state schools." Perry said the sterootype which portrays PLU as a haven for student.s with wealthy parents is not completely accurate. EtlCh college or university has a percentage of wealthy students in its population, but most como from the middle class. PLU may be different n i respect to its Christian heritage and strong family support, Perry theorizes. "The kids here probably have more fSmi l y resources to help them through school as a whole but that doesn't mean they have a lot of extra money to throw around." Aid usually does not stop with a financial sward or scholar· ship. Most students also work some type of work stody program. Beth Ahlstrom, assistant career services director. said there are plenty of jobs svailable in the state work study program because state funding increased over last year. Through the program, employers are reimbursed tw�thlrds of the salary they pay. Pari,. of lhe finaneial aid awsrd comes n i the form of work study eligibility. The two are balanced between what students can earn snd parents can afford to pay. "Students I see make it very clear to me that they have to work in order to stay in school.'· Ahlstrom said. Work study students usually work 19 hours per week during Bchool and extnl hours during Interim and vacations.

Throughout the 8Ong. the singers repeat, "I ain't gonna play Sun City:' Funds raised from record sales of "Sun City" will benefit the Africa Fund, a charitable trust based in New York Ci· ty and registered with tho United Na· tions. Income will be used to help political prisoner:! and their families in South Africa. educational and cultural noods of South African exiles, and educational work of anti·apartheid groups in the United States. Van Zandt covered all of his expenses in producing and promoting the album and Manhattan Records is donating all profits to the Africa Fund. A seven·song album will be released soon as well as a video produced by Godley and Creme, the aeaton of some highly acclaimed videos ncluding i "Cry." Those involved witJ;l "Sun City" say they want people to enjoy the music and gradually pay attention to the message. Unlike. "We Are the World," words are not easily discernible. But it is a more complex plea than "feed the world."

Band Aid. Farm Aid, Live Aid, and now - Anti.Apartheid. With the release this week of the single "Sun City." rock music joins with its cousins jau, reggae, and rhythm and blues to continue its hreak from the 70s disco malaise into a new style of politico­ =k. This composition Lakes a much more controversial approach than its predecessors "Don't They Know it's Ctuistmas?" and "We are the World." In addition. the rhythm and blues feel of "Sun City" presents the anti'apartheid message more intensely than the sweet harmonies Of " We Are the World." The lyrics speak for themselves: "relocation to phony homelands," "peo-


The lyrics force the listener to think about the causes of discrimination and what role each person plays n i it. It is not purely political. though. Apartheid affects human beings who live. breathe; and laugh; it is not simply a matter of political boundaries or propllganda.

Blacks in South Africa comprise 75 percent of the population, but they are allowed only 1 3 percent of the property. The average monthly industrial wage for whites is S701...for blacks it is S186. Between 30 and 50 percent of all black children in South Africa die before the age of five. Listening to "Sun City" or purchasing the record will not solve South Africa's problems. but perhaps if enough people hear the message this song offers, they will be motivated to act. This was true for "We Are the World" when millions reafu..ed innocent children were starving. Well, innocent children are dying far more violent deaths in South Africa everyday. It is up to us to make a difference... to put pressure on legislators and policy makers to work toward II viable 5Olution to the problem of apartheid. If we do not then the lyrics of" Sun Ci· ty" may one day return to haunt us. "We're stabbing our brotbers and sisters in the back.. "

Lutes trounce Eastern Oregon Mounties SO-O

Sets new PLU football record for largest winning margin in one game by Clayton Cowl

M ast staff reporter

Pacific Lutheran took control early and never slowed the pace as the undefeated and number eight ranked Lutes blasted Easlern Oregon. SO-O to break a school winning margin record in a contest held last Saturday. Oct. 19 in Lakewood Stadium. PLU's 50'point \'ictory margin sur' passed the 4S·point previous mark set in 1982 against Lewis and Clark when the Lutes pounded out a 48-0 shutout. The win puts PLU in an uncontested top spot in Columbia League standings at 2·0 and 4-0·1 for the season as the squad rolled up 405 yards of total of·

fense and held Eastern Oregon to a mere 63 yards offense for the entire afternoon. "The best thing to watch was the team effort." explained PLU head coach Frosty Westering. "The first unit came OUt and played so efficiently. but the backup players also did a fine job at a lot of different positions. " The Lutes scored on their first five possessions for 21 first.quarter points and 14 second·period tallies as they led 3S·0 at the halfway mark before calling upon the reserves. On Pacific Lutheran's first posses· sion. the Lutes drove 62 yards in 8 plays for an early score. The drive was keyed by a 24·yard screen pass from Jeff Yarnell to Mike Vindivich that took the ball to the Mounties 5·yard line before Mark Helm bulied into the end lone on the next play. On the next drive. Jon Kral pounced on a loose football at the Mountaineer 16·yard line after quarterback Jeff Winters was hit and sacked. Three pl9Ys later, Vindivich slammed into the end zone from one yard out. while Mark Foeg1!'s PTA kick made il 14·0. Yarnell hit Vindivich for a 2S·yard pass play to the EOse 3, while Jud Keim carried the ball into the end from three years out neor the er.d of the fU"8t period. Vindivich sprinted for a 21·yard touchdown with 12:29 left n i the second period, while Steve Senna angled into the end wne from 9 yards out with Pat O'Grady adding the conversion. In the third period, a S2.yard fwd goal attempt by Mark Foege hit the left crossbar u the hold was muffed after a poor snap. But PLU got thinp back on track when Tyler Trumbull ended up on the receiving end of a 14·yard touchdown pass from Lee Sherman at the conclu· "!!lion of the third quarter. Steve Valach broke two tackles en route to a four·yard touchdown run with 2:S8 left in the game. After a broken play on the point after touchdown at· tempt, kicker Pat O'Grady picked the ball up, pump faked and angled for the corner of the end wne to give the Lutes a two-point conversion and break the school victory margin record. " I picked the ball up and one of their guys was JUSt mirroring me along the line." remembered O'Grady. "I pump faked and he sucked back in. so I just ran as fast as I could into the end zone.

When Steve {Valachi scored his touchdown, he did it with second ef· fort and that kind of play is what total ,. team play is all about. Individually, Jeff Yarnell passed six times with four completions for 74 yards, whi l e Lee Sherman went 2 for 3 for 45 yards. PLU had five ballcarriers with over 30 yards as Mike Vindivich led the list with 62 yards on 9 rushes, while Craig Pu:rey ran 49 yards 0:1 9 carries, Mark Helm went 35 yards on 8 carries, Jud Keim toted the ball 7 times for 33 yards, and Eric Krebs ran 8 times for 32 yards. The Lutes will need total team play this weekend as they face Central Washington University in Ellensburg this Saturday, Oct. 26 for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff.

The PLU women's &OCCer team main· tained eole posession of fll'st place in the NCIC by defeating previously undefested Whitman 3·1 on Saturday. Whitman 8COred the fll'st goal four minutes nto i the fll'st hall. Ruth Frobe came back a minute later to tie the score. The Lutes went on to score two goals in the next 15 minutes. Sonya Brandt and Stacy Waterworth ac· counted for the Lutes' final two goals. "We really rolle to the occasion." said coach Colleen Hacker. "Whitman i.s a very physical team." On Fridsy, Brandt booted in three goals in less than 20 minutes of playill8

time to lead the Lutes to a 4-1 victory over Lewis & Clark. Brandt bad limited playing tlme because of a sprained ankle. Waterworth added the other Lutes' goa1. "11lere wa9 lots of bench contn'bu· tion," said Hacker. "We proved to ourselves we can play with Jots of dif· ferent people." Hacker said the Lutes probably played the finest back·to-back games of the season last weekend. "We're teIilly pushing hard and plly. ina well as a team," said Hacker. PLU improved their overall record to 9-4·1 and t.hcir conference record to 1)-0..1.

Good news thill week for the PLU football learn and its post'5eason playoff chances. Four teams ahead of the Lutes in the NAJA Division II col· lege football poU lost games this past Saturday. giving PLU a more secured position for the playoffs. Probably the most important loss smong the Top 20. as far a.s the Lutes are concerned, was WesLern Mor.tana's 35·14 win over No. 4 Carroil ipreviously 6'()) of MonWna. That game had a special significance for PLU as Carroll is n i the same region for the playoffs as the Lutes. The rcason that is important is that the number onc team (i.e. the rugben T8nked team in the November 16 paUl from each region receives an automatic berth n i to the playoffs. Playoff berths are hard to get, so if by going undefeated the Lutes can earn a playoff spot. more power to them. Carroll was not the only team to fall from the undefeated ranks this week. Wisconsin·LaCn:tS5e 'now 5-1·1) was ranked number three in last week's poU before falling victim to Wisconsin·River Falls 34·21. The No. 6 team Wilmington 'previous' ly 4..()) was beaten by No. 15 Bluffton (5..()) 42·28, while No. 10 Wisconsin·Eau Claire lost to Wisconsin.Qshkosh 2J.l3. bringing Eau Claire's rec:ord to 3·1·1. Bethel·Kansas. previously number eleven, lost to Ottawa 17·7 dropping them from the undefeated ranks. Movers in this week's poll along with the Lutes. now 4..()·1. should be No. 13 Loras. Iowa. which beat Olivet Nazarene 3S..() and upped its record to 7 ..(). and No. IS Bluffton with its win over Wilmington. If the pollsters feel so generous. LOras could challenge No. I Northwestern of Iowa for the top spot. But it probably will oot happen considering Nor· thwestern has been ranked in the tOP spot for a while and won its game over Westmar 36·14. The Mast is �oming to YOll early this

week due to mid'S(!mester break. Although this prevents us from printing this week's poll. So here are some speculations as to where teams will place this week:


L Northwestem

7..() 6..()

2. Loras, Iowa 3. Benedictine 4. Azusa Pacific 5. Findlay

6. Pacific Lutheran 7. Bluffton, Ohio 8. St. Ambrose 9. Linfield 10. Wisconsin·LaCrosse

S"() 5-0

4-{).1 5..() 5·1 4·1


There are some chances for more of these top ten teama to fall before the f mal poU on Nov. 16. Northwestern still must play the up-and-coming St. Am· broee. and FiDdlay must play Bluffton and Wi..lmingtoo beforeaeason end. Let's not forget Lute8 remaining schedule. PLU has Central Washington this Saturday and Simon Fraser before the season is out, along with Whitworth lwhich beat Simon Fraser this past week 42·211 and Western Washington. which is looking to avenge its 24·13 loss to the Lutes last season.


Following the Lutes so-o romp over Eastern Oregon State College r. i Colum· bia Football League action Saturday. Mounties coach Jerry Howell has to wonder what his football program h8lll to

do to win games for the pride of the blue and gold. Howell in two seasons as coach of Ease. is yet to win a game under his leadership. After a winless 1984 season. the Mounties had the opportunity to receive a guaranteed $15.000 for their traveling eapenses for the season by playing defending NCAA Division II national champion Montana State. MSU built a 73"() haUtime lead and rolled to 8 86-<1 thrashing of the Moun· ties. 'The reason MSU only picked up 13 second·half points is because it played its fourth stringers and didn't pass the ball the entire second·half of the game. Some might say, "Well sure they got beat 86..(). They were playing the NCAA D ivision II national champs. What do you expect?" Montana State is Hi this season, 0·4 in conference play. Maybe the Mounties took it out of them? Probably not.

But Saturday's game was only the se­ cond time EOse haa been shut out this seasor. (the other being Montana State).

The best that the Mounties have been able to manage this season is a pair of ties. In their game with Pacific the week before. the Mounties scored with 17 seconds left in the game to take the lead 27·26 and apparently were on their way to their f Irst victory in two seasons. But the Boxers took the kickoff and ran 90 yards for the touchdown and the . The Mounties just can't seem to break through the barrier. They've been outscored 253·83 and the task doesn't appear to get any easier. EO$C has UPS. Centra! Washington. and Whitworth left to play this season.


The Lut� 50-0 victory did not go un· noticed in the PLU record books. Satur­ day's game was the largest winning margin by n PLU squad in the the school's football history. The previous mllrk 48 points Dnd thot feat ....os . done in three different games. Way to go Lutes!

Dorm damage decreases as student responsibility grows by Miriam Bacon

Mast stall reporter

Gum jamml,."<i into dorm room locks. torn window screens and broken mirrors are some of the dormitory damub'C incidt'nts reported this year at PLU. said Jim Phillips, director of the physical plant. But despite there predictable rooccurance every yeW'. dorm damage is on the decrease, said Jan Maul Smith. hOUSing coordinator. "Students art' taking pride in their dorms." said Phillips. "There is considerably less damage than five years ago," Maul·Smith reported. "We mostly deal with dorm damage during student checkout (at the e:.d of the semester)." Maul·Smith said. This usually n i volves only minor room damage. she added. " If an incident occurs during the year the parties in· volved are charged at that time," she said. "Student.a are a.5king the administration t.o be more accountable for student's money," she said. "We try to hold individual students responsible." Ninety·five percent of the time individual students are held accountable to pay for the damage, said I.auralee Hagen, director of Residental Life. Very little dorm damage ends up being paid for by an entire wing or dorm. she said. It usually is paid for by thll people who caused the destl1.lction. "Students are good about paying for damages," Phillips soid. They are also real good about admitting their fault. he added. When damage occurs in public dorm areas and can· not be attributed to an n i dividual, members of the wing on which it occurred arecharged. Last year, students living on Stuen's second south I<'ing were each char�'Cd 510 becausp. those responsible

for spraying paint on the carpet did not confess to the crime, /laid Jim Mischler, Stuen hall director. Ivy Hall was flooded last year when drains in the showers were plugged and the water was turned on, said Scott r.lonson, preS{'ntly hall director of Ranier who was an Iv)' RA lastyoar. Damage is prioritized according to how immediately it needs to be repaired. Phillips said. The less hazar· dous the damage, the less priority it's given. Hall directors are required t.o mark on the maintenance form the immediacy of the damage. Jill Christensen, a sophorr.ore in Alpine. was charged for room damage last year. She and her roommate had put a cork bulletin board on the wall. When they took it down at the end of the year all of the cork did not come off the wall she said. When they tried to scrape it off the wall, the paint was damaged. She said she was expecting maintenance t.o rlX it over the summer. But when she came back to her room, she said she was disappointed that it had not been repaired. Steve Roth, an RA in Ivy, was charged $40 for damage done to the bookshelvea in his room last year. He and his roommate had put bunks up using the bookshelves in their Alpine room. "It was our fault the ....y the bunks were put up," Roth said when the end boards on the shelves came off. The RA t.old us that we would each be charged SIS, he said. But when he received his account balance he noticed a 140 charge. "It's unusual that they were billed more than what the room condition report says," Hagen said. "That's not normal." The room condition report lists an estimated charge she said. An RA can only estimate the cost of repair. Estimates aN! made from a list the physica1 plant

has issued, Maul·Smith said. Or students are charged the actual cost repair, Christensen was originally quoted $7. Her account balance showed she was charged $17. 9he said. She took the malter to Maul·Smith. A clerical error wa9 found. She was credited the difference. "If it was a mistake we would be happy to credit the difference," Hagen said. Roth said he did not. take the ti me to find out why he was charged more. H 9tudent.s come in they will not be auo..omatically credited the difference, Hagen said. " It depends on the circumstances. " "We would be happy to Cllplain the difference," Hagen said. "We're not intentionally ripping off studenta hoping they won'tcome in," she said. Accorrung to Roth's room condition report, the $15 was crossed offand the '.0 was added. "There was a lot Ie" atudent vandalism year and this year than previous years," Phillips said. "There's a lot of vandalism from outside people. Vandalillm from out.aiden is about the same and may be on the increase," he said. "Recently $5000 worth of windows were broken on the north end of Rieke Science Center which was done by outsidera," Phillips said. Last year a bathroom in Olson sustained $3000 worth of smoke damage, he said when kids outside PLU lit a bunch of paper towels. Damages such as these are absorbed by the universi· ty in two budget accounts used for donn im· provements, Phillips said. Maul·Smith stressed that student tuition pays for tuition and buildings. "Money they pay for housing goes back nto i hous· ing," she added.

Faculty committee tenures new colleagues with 'good reputation' by Jonathan


Mast reporter

The faculty tenure committee, headed by English profe950r Paul Benton, are bebrinning its annual deliberations on the b'fllnting of tenure to PLU' tors who have taught at the university for at least six year8. The selection pro­ cess will be complete by December. Every sixth'year faculty member must go through the process, said Benton. Benton described tenure lIS the univer' lIity's commitment to faculty members who have established good reputations as teachers and scholars. Tenure is a job guarantee. barring serious university financial problems or gross faculty in· competence or moral depravity. "This is the big thing because there is noin betwllt'n," said Hent.on. He added that faculty not tenured are given a on�year final teaching conmct. But he also said that generally PLU faculty members know whether or not they will be tenured. The university has no faculty tenure quota, he pointed out. PLU's tenure process. Bent.on said. emphasi;tes teaching effectiveness. .. No faculty member with a poor teaching record will likely be tenured, " he stated. Excellence in teaching can compen· sate for shortcomings in another area of evaluation, publillhing articles. But he said it is more difficult to evaluate teaching capabilities compared to publishl'd articles. Once a faculty member s i tenured, the drive that kllt'ps the professor's pursuit of ucellent:c, is three-pronged, said Benum. FaCUlty complacency s i not likely, he said, because tenure 8110w8 academic people to continue de\'eloping their curiosity. By the time most faculty reach the tenure point. ther'�'e made it throu2'h tht' "sifting" of faculty ho constantly


enter and leave PLU. The importance of tenure itself, Benton said, is that it "keeps the university from being distorted from outside forces." Tenure sllows academic freedom without fear of reprisal from ad· m inistrators or out.side people, he said, referring to what he called a misuse of power dur it:g the 1950s McCarthy era and its effect on colleges. As of last ThUrsday, the eight faculty members to be considered for tenure this year were required to aubmit evidence and recommendations detai l· ing their abilities. A recommendation from the commit· tee, lIS well as a separate repoTt from the Provost on each individual, will be sent to President Rieke for his final decision. Benton said the I.ormal assumption is that anyone up for tenure will get it. Though he said there are "tensions" in hoirung his tenure committee, he thinks "it is an extremely important faculty runction." "No good person has been forced to leave because there is no tenure room," Benton said. From nearly a dOUln faculty members considered for tenure last fall. one was rejected. This fall the ei5ht seeking tenure are: Edwin Clausen, Assistant ProfeSllor of History Constance Hansen, Assistant Professor of Nursing Sharon Jansen·Jaech, Assistant Pro­ feS50r of English Bradford Moore, Assistant Professor of Physca1 Education Dick Dlufa, ASllistant Professor of Political Science Rochelle Snee, Assistant Professor of Languages Steven Thrasher.

Leg sled trims student fat

by MIrIam Hacon Mast staff reporter

PLU students may have more shapely hips and legs this year thanks to the latest addition to the Names itness Center. Scott Westering, fitness consul· tant for the center and staff assis' tant lor the PE department, said the new hip and leg sled exercises the lower bo$iy. "It uses every muscle from the waist down," he said. " It's becom· ing real popular. It's the safest machine you can use on the lower body," The sled puts the exerciser in the most advantageous leverage position (on the back) which takes stress off the lower body, said Westering. 800 pounds of new free weights have been added as well this year. Other logistical changes have been made at the Center, as well. The exercise bicykes were mov· ed to the center of the room to be closer to the monitor. which


simulates a ride through Yellowstone Park. There are three different tours shown. said Westering, and each tour lasts 20 minutes. The multi·station unit, formerly located in the center of the room, h,,-s been moved to a corner. On an average day, nearly 300 people use the fitness Center, said Westering. The heaviest usage time is from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m., he said. "Usage of fitness center is nor· mal wear and tear," Westering said. " Students are real good about not abusing the facilities. What they're not good about is deaning up after themselves ileav· bg weights lying around)." Westering s i available in the fitness center from noon to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday for anyone who would like IISsistance with a weight·training program. He is also teaching several weight training classes which help students establish a program or help improve a current one.

Tax system scrutinized; no easy answers

by Lance Kuykendall Mast staff reporter Most people agree that their own taxes are too high, but at Tuesday's Na­ t.ional Issues Fomm. the audience found it more difficult to agree on improving the tax system. Who should pay taxes and how they should pay was the topic of a National Issues Fomm held Oct. 29 in the R.egen· cy Room of the University Center. The two-hour fomm studied three questions: Should tax loopholes be eliminated in favor of a simpler, fairer tax system: How should the tax burden be distributed between different income levels: and should more of the tax burden be placed on other revenue sources such as corporations. , The forum was sponsored by PLU's Division of Social Sciences and the Center for the Study of Put-Iic Policy in conjunction with the Domestic Policy

Association (DPA), a nation-wide net· work of colleges, libraries, churches and civic groups organized t::t bring citizens together to discuss public issues. The forum featured a panel of experts including State Representative Linda Thomas, Charles Hodde, fonner revenue director for Washington state: and Ed McMillan, former chief economist for Rainier Bank, and a former advisor to the U. S. Treasury Commission. The panel also n i cluded Norris Peterson. assistant professor of economics at PLU, and Bob Stivers, associate pro­ fes90r of religion at PLU,.

Ernie Ankrim, associate professor of economics at PLU moderated the discussion, The panel discussed the topics by briefly stating their opinions and then opening the floor to audience questions and opinions, Fay Anderson, director of special pro-

Com petition st iffens for thrift shops on Garfield Street

jects for the division of social sciences, said the fomm was intended to infonn people of tax issues. By hearing the views of panel member� and other citizens. she said. people can be moved from an initial judgement to a well· considered and more knowledgeable cond opinion. Over 60 people attended the forum. mostly older non-students. Prior to the tax program they were in\'ited to fill out a survey on their opinions on tax issues. At the end of the forum they filled out another survey. "That's one of the things the DPA likes to do," Anderson said. "They try to measure if people's ideas change as a result of the fomm.·· She said the results of the surveys will be analyzed by a mao jor research organization, and the resulting report will be shared with na­ tiona] policy makers in the spring. The forum was the second in a series of three scheduled this year. The next se­

National ]""ups fomm will be held Nov. 14. It is titled "The Soviets: What is the conflictaoout?" Panelists scheduled are: James Taulbee. professor of political science at Emory University: Bob Lamson. vice president of Northwest Region Business Executives for National Security: Lt. Colonel Gus Schwartz iRet.): and Cmdr. Tom Donnelly mSN-Ret.) vice president of Sixth Sense. The moderator will be Donald Farmer, professor of poitical l science at PLU.

Campus TV expands programming by Mark Reys

Mast reporter

This year PLU's on-campus television network, KFCS, has added. three new programs to its lineup, as part of an ef· fort to upgrade last year's format.. In addition to new programming, KFCS is trying to acquire a satellite dish, in hopes of improving even further the station's programming format. KFCS is a student·run news and .entertainment stat.ion. Transmitting on channel S over PLU's cable system, the station telecasts a variety of programs in conjunction with the Focus news pro­ gram, which airs for 15 minutes at 7 p.m.• repeating at 9, and 11 p.m..

There are also football, and soon basketball games aired Tuesday nights. KCCR, the student·run radio station on campus, was sharing channel S with KFCS TV until their modulator was in· stalled.. Now KCCR is at 94.5 on the FM


In addition to adding three programs to the format, KFCS General Editor An· drew Pollard said he is currently trying to acquire a satellite dish, which he said would allow the station to provide viewers with a much wider program selection. KFCS is made up primarily of volunteer!!. ani the five Focus ex·

Debators play serious in 'big league sport' Lutes tough challenger for big schools a


by Shannon Brlnl s

Mast reporter

"Several thousand late nighls... · · That's how senior debater Matt Taylor sums up his last four years on PLU's debate team. "In some ways, debate is a type of sporting event. We put as much effort into it mentsUy as any other athletic team puts out physically,"' explained junior Tim Evanson. Together, Taylor and Evanson are PLU's senior debate team, competing in the championship division against other top-noLch college teams. Last week, they placed in the quarterfinals at the University of Oregon InvitationaJ Tour· nament, while two weeks age, they finished second in a tournament at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, "',. The two see t!ebate as an outlet where people get a chllnce to express their idell5. "It can get pretty exciting when aU the adrenalin is going,"" Taylor said. "Even the worst college speakers blow you away with their talent."" Evan· son pointed out. Evanson became interested n i public speaking n i 9th grade. "I gave a speech for a group caUad the Optimist Club," he recalled. "It was on ctel'ping socialism in the U.S kind of had to do it on something patriotic like that." Evanson, aJong with most of the other debaters. came to PLU because of ita debate team. Many of PLU's visible alumni, including Dr. and Mrs. Rieke, were once debaters. The team is con· sistantly ono of the top 50 in the coun­ try, keeping up with tho Harvards and YaJes, althougtl PLU's debate team is funded less than those at most other colleges.

According to Bartsnen, debate at· tracts " smart people who work hard." Tournaments take "up about two­ thirds of the weekends.

"You can't be embarassed to get in front of people," he stressed: But in· dividual events, or IEs, are fun "because you can be wi l d, and then sit down, rein, and enjoy the other peaple's speeches." In spite of all their involvemen't and commitment, Taylor and Evanson say debate isn't accepted as a valid com· petitive activity by the rest of PLU's students. Both agreed that if people could see a debate, they would unders· tand what goes into it, and have more respcet for wbat they do. For Evanson, that point was brought W(T weUs

Two PLU det> members plac· ed in the quarterfina1.8 of the Oregon In· vitational Debate Tournament two weeks ago. Senior Matt Taylor and junior Tim Evanson were quarterrmalists in the senior championship division, and Freshman John Lapham and Dan Dan· nen made the quarterfinals in the in­ termediate division. Taylor also finished second in the senior extemporaneous speaking divi­ sion, while Evanson placedd second in communication anaJysis. Freshman Stacy Underland and sophomore Chip Upchurch were both finaJists in their respective events of oral n i terpretation and informative speaking. Eight PLU student!! traveled to Eugene, Ore. for the tournament. It is

one of25 debate tourneys the PLU team will compete at this year. The tournament is one of four that count!! toward placement in the Nor­ thwest Forensic Conference Tourna· ment- later in the ,year. The four t0ur­ naments were designated prior to the seuon by NFC, and almost all the college teams from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana competed


Michael Bartanen, now in his seventh year aa PLU's debate coach. said, "Our expectation is that ws'U have one of the top teams in the country." Last year Taylor and former PLU stu­ dent Peter Schweizer teamed up to place second at the nationaJ Pi Kappa Delta Tournament held in Arkansaa. The en­ tire team finished 16th in the National Small Cpllege Sweepstakes. The students compete in a variety of speaking events, ncluding i debate and individual event!!, such as oral inter·

pn:tation, oratory and m i promptu speaking. During a typical debate, the team has one hour and 20 minutes to make its arguments, back them up with evidence . and refute the other team's argument!!. Each team has six preliminary rounds to try to advance to the rmaJ round. The current national college debate topic concerns whether "signirlCant government restrictions on coverage by the U.S. media of terrorist activity are justified"" The teams are divided into three cateories. "Championship" teams are those that have won eight or more trophies in previous tournamentS. The "Experienced'· division is for those with three to eight trophies. and "In· termediate" teams have won less than three events. PLU's debate team left today to com' pete in a tournament at Lower Columbia Community College in Longview, Wash.

Nurses happy with new Ramstad home Mast reporter

by Emily Morgan Moira Mansell, dean of the School of Nursing for the past four years, belieVe! the department'll move from Ingram Hall to Ramstad Hall has been a one. The larger bUilding has centralized the department in a way that Ingram could not, said Mansell. The lack of sufficient space in Ingram forced a certain number of claasell to meet in other buildings, which was often confusing to student!!. Mansell also said that students are DOW offered greater access to campus rtl80urt:eS sech as the library, and the UC, in addition to the department's faculty who all have offices in Ramstad.


There are currently · 265 nursing students plus 22 fun·time and three part-time faculty members accomodated

in Kamstad. '!:he builwng also holds various stutient services such ns the Writing Center and the Academic Ad· vising Center. as well as clll5S1"oom space for classes other than nursing. Nursing student Betsy Ross, said she likes the new location but that students and teachers wish they were able to eat or drink in the rooms. Another nursing student, Jodi Min­ nick, also likes the building change and said that she thinks that, "when the newness wears off, they will let people eat there. I hope,". People are allowed to eat in the Writing Center, which is also carpeted. Roberta McMullen, nursing student, pointed out that there were no screens or drapes for film viawing. "There is a shiny wash on the walls for films which is a bit glarey," sbe said. Mansell said she has recently roc:eived phone caUs from severnl nursing

Since the School of Nursing was established at PLU in 1956. the depart· ment's homl! has bounced among several buildings on campus.

When this building was removed, the department moved to the lower campus Ivy building which has been recently tom down to accomodate a growing PLU. Ingram, once the "Col· lege Union Building"" ICUBI. became available once the U.C. was built. and the department has remained there until thill year. The new addition of the Rieke Science Center moved science classes to lower campus and left Ramstad to be rennovated for the School of Nursing.

Norsk students

seek friendships by Gerd·H.nne Fosen

Mast st�fI reporter

Norwegian student!! at PLU want to socialize more with Americans. They have decided to make a strong effort to change the idea that Norwegians are not . interesUd getting to know


President of the PLU branch of the Association (or Norwegian Students Abroad IANSA-PLU), Staale Stoove1and, said i' is now possible for all students to become aasociate members of ANSA·PLU. The association wilt arrange various activities open to all PLU students. he said. The first event, scheduled for November, is a ski day at White followed by an after-ski pany in Tacoma. Stoeveland added that associate members will enjoy a considerable dis· count on all event!!. He hopes the idea of 'adopting' Americans in the association will pro­ vide an opportunity for Norwegians to meet more Americans as well as for Americans to get to know Norwegians. "We think that one of the important parts of being a student abroad is to learn something about the country you are in and make friends there, not only studying," Stoevebnd said. Stoeveland admitted that IDOst Norwegians have some American friends, but said that, "As an organiza' tion we can arTange larger social ac­ tivities and maybe also show American student!! how things are done in Norway."" The plan is to organize more than just social gatherings, he explained, referr­ ing to the ski day, "Nisseballet", and other activities planned for next semester. "It is different from having a private party to which you tend to invite only friends," Stoeveland said.

The decision to discontinue the escort service was made because of the university'S cuts in Campus Sale­ ty's budget. As a result. Campus Safety's manpower has been left shorthanded and needs every available hand to insure the safety of the campus. Of all the places to cut costs, the safety of the students should be the last thing to be sacrificed. Rather than discontinue the very valuable off cam· pus escort service, other options are available. Simply cut money from other "fat" departments on campus that could afford the minor cuts that proved critical for Campus Salety. Escort service courd be made into a work study job where

Students , donns match identities by Clayton Cowl

RecenLly a friend of mine scrawled a note to me from Battle Ground High School (down in the rolling cow pies of beautiful southwest Washington). Un­ fortun ately. his message included a question about where he should lh'e once he started school at PLU. "Hey. where is the 'cool' place to live on campus." he asked. Immediately the problems started. What's "cool"? Upper or lower cam· pus? Radical dorm or Stuen? Oops! Time to give this problem some serious thought. Thinking is involved here. What makes a good dorm? Initial thoughts of a great college dorm to most high school seniors consist of II fairly nice-looking house with beer poster wallpaper nside. i brawls. parties and women, or men, {not necessarily in that order or sex). But they are rudely awakened when Mom and Dad drop them in Lheir bare cubicle in Kreidler called a room and bid a MsLy farewell before they change their minds and grab that job al Joe's SuperGrease Burgers back n i Spokane and call it a life. Things get even worse when freshmen check out the showers. It's one thing to have to put up with pink tile and fluores­ cent lights that flicker like a strobe light when you peer in the mirror to shave. but try getting shot with II blast of frozen water when the showerhead has been removed. This rather tfllgiC pr()o as probably the sole reason for blem ..... the formation of the Biconcave Chest Club which meets twice a month n i shower sLalls across the campus. Where does the poor unknowing freshman hope to live? Every dorm has its pros and cons. yet to ench resident their home is the best. Many freshmen. and even some upperclassm£'n ate swept awa\' with sterootypesof \'arious dorms.

Look ilL SLuen. Here is Il dorm thaL oozes nerds. The question that has been plaguing most of the campus is whether or not Stuen will ever have an all­ campus dance that turns ollt more peo­ ple than can be counted on two hands. The lasL attempt was reported to feature one 3S·year senior disco-dancing on the John Travolta carpet for a record four hours straight. Ordal is a great example of a dorm witl. special enthusiasm. It ·s special in that no one knows about it. Key dorm activities include painting the halls dif­ ferent color trees, chasing people away from dorm barbeques and throwing giant rolls of toilet paper down the lobby balcony during dances. Kreidler is another sorry case of the dreadful mistake made when the PLU founding fathers shoveled the fIrst lump of gravel from the rocky PLU soil-an aU·female dorm. Strange things happen in Kreidler. 1'welve new male students were reportl.."<i entering the facility and never leaving. Reliable sources say they were forced to move in for unknown reasons. Now that's scary. Hong is a dorm that no one ever hears about. The lights are on, but no one is home. Unoffical counts say Hong has the second·largest number of alcoholic paraphernalia hanging n i its windows _ next to Rainier. But Hong seems confus­ ed as to what beer to offically sponsor. 'I'taditionally. music majors were reported existing in the confines of Hong. but no one knows. Residents are never seen. Rainier is considered the lower cam­ pus dorm of upper campus. The building is filled with 120 all·male holdouts-guys that they wouldn't let stay anywhere else.

The person who grccted me shook her head as she asked where I lived. "127th and C," , said. "Sorry we no longer give escorts off campus. There was an article in the .. Mooring Mast. J didn't happen to read the Jl.last this week. I missed one edition and look where it left me-out in the dark. "Could someone give me a ride to at least 125th1," I asked. I found out that if I 20 minutes I might have gotten an escort but being an impatient per50n longing for the lux· ury of sleep I decided to walk. It was the perfect night for a horror movie: the on­ ly sounds were the drumming of the rain and the rustling of the wind. Remem· brances of all the stories of attacks that have occurred in the area ran through my mind. I was no more relieved when a swerving car passed me and an obvious· Iy n i ebriated passenger opened his door and yelled either "Get out of the way." or "Do you waut a lay?" Since I was walking on the gravel I began to walk much faster.

I made it home untouched except by the rain, thank God, but I wonder why I couldn't have made it home without any fear involved. !f I had lived on campus it would have been no problem for them. Being a person who could no longer tolerate the dorm. the food, or dorm life with its abundance of tasteless restric· tions and deficiency of privacy, I decid· ed to limit my expenditures and live off campus. I never knew by doing so ! would be limiting the privileges I previously thought innate to being a member of this university. As it is, the explicit services of Campus Safety are reserved for students coming and going within the campus sector. which. thereby largely limits it to the students who pay (the school! for on-campus room. I can understand that Campus Safety must work within a limited budget. something we all must do. Duringthe past six yeara trus university has receiv· ed almost S17.5 million in donations alone. This ia not considering the rise in both tuition and enroUment and their ef­ fects on revenue. Yet it still seema odd to me when I consider the expenditures that go into relocating leavea outside the path of those savage Lutes who would not think twice about mercilessly trampling those helpless creations of God on their way to clan. But then again, those poor leaves are living on campus. Leslie Koski

Tothe Editor. I don't understand and I hope maybe you can help me. I have two problems with your newspaper. First, I sent in a letter to the editor about a month ago, and you never published it. I am somewhat surprised by this. I checked with one of yours reporters who told me you considered this tetter ··inflamatory." Due to the nature of my letter. I was informed you wanted to be sure I wrote it. I totally agtCC. but I never received a phone call. How do you confirm a letter? It is my guess that you phoned only once, and I was not home. It is my hope that you would try again until you finally reached m•. Yes. my letter was "inflamatory" and controversial, but that's the way ' wrote it. I hope you did not make a judgement and decided not to publish my letter because of it contents. Okay. I can live with that-the letter

ooska.::y affected only one person, me. However, my second problem affects a lot of people. About two wccks ago I spoke with you about running a story in the Oct. 24 issue regurding try-ouLs for the bowling: teams I am forming in conjunction with the university. You told me that since this is not " news" I would have to write up the article myself. I took the time, wrote the article, und turned it in before your specified deudline. I did not see this artide in the paper. I don't unders· tand this. My repcner friend told me that there probably was not enough space. However, if I may be so bold, might it huve been too much to ask to cut down the sport editor's column (which happened to be a whole page last wcckl? J counted on you. and the whole university was affected due to your decision. J t is my hope you will be more con· siderate and cureful in the future. Sincerely. and truly written by Tom Jones.

Make budget cuts elsewhere Tothe Editor.

It has recently come to my attention that Campus Safety will be discontinu· ng i off-campus escort service due to "budget cuts." Aa an off-campus stu· dent I must protest this acton. It is well known that Parkland is not a very safe place to live. There have been rapes and assaults of PLU students liv­ ing off campus. There is absolutely no good reason to sacrifice the safety of our students for the sake of saving a few dollars. Is student safety such a low

priority for PLU's administration that basic escort service is cut when there are budget problems? What will they cut next time · all escorts? I would strongly encourage aU students. especially those who use or have used the escort service before or those who are concerned for the safety of people who depend on this service, to write a letter of protest to Ron Garrett. the director of Campus Safety, and send a �opy of it to PTesident Rieke·soffice.

Arts PLU gallery features first video art exhibit by Daye Howell Mas! reporter There's something new coming to PLU. nnd it·s on TV. The "Video nnd Media Arts" show. featuring works from five arlists. will .lptn in In�'fam Hall's Wekell Gallery on Sunday. The aft on display will feature or involve video in one form or another. The show is th(' h.rb<est gallery exhibi· lion of its kind in the Northwest and it's l'oming to PLU. The fin' artists showing works (It the galler)' ure Norie Salo. Gary Hill. Mark I.eonllrd. Izumi Kuroiwa, and Bill Hichie. Each of t.hem hilS chosen to use video technology to interpret reality in different ways. s..w·s "'orks will undoubtedly arouse the most comment. She constructs video " 1r s. consisting of a rectangular steel �t.and from four to silt feet tall. topped by long slivers of glass. Inside the steel shaft is a television, fllcing up, running a videotape made by the artist. a local sta· lion. or something else. The volume is turned down so vie.... -ers cannot hear what is being said. and the only way to see the picture is to look at the reflections in the glllss shards. It is m i possible to see the entire picture this w to recently displayed her work in the Seattle Art Museum: it can also be secn at the prestiJrious Linda Farris Gnllery in Seattle.

«! "

Gary Hill's work is something of a mystery. He was recommended by Sato to photography at PI-U.

B. Geller. assist..n nt professor of invil.ntion when

He accepted the

he was contacted.

However. Geller said, because she was not very familiar with Hill's work. his part ?f t�e show promises a "lot of surprzses Leonllrd and Kuroiwa are married. nnd, as a result. they have collaborated in the past. But the)' are showing their work separately !It the Wekell exhibit. Both majored in printmaking at the University of Washington. and became acquainted with video art from n i stl'\lC' tor Bill Ritchie. Leonard's work involves pulling new concepts from familiar reality. and he uses videotape as a medium of change.

"Painting is direct, from the artist's eyes to the brush, but video. like print· making. can be used as medium to modify the original image. With print· making it's a copper . . . plate. with video it's the videotape," he said.

Leonard does not consider the images on the videotape to be the completion of the work. He uses the vi(leo image as "clay" that needs to be shaped. He uses as techniques, such several photographing a television picture and working with the pbotogTllph, videotap­ ing a videotape, or using a camera to record what II television is showing. When Kuroiwa majored n i printmak· ing at the University, ahe didn't want to work with video, but she was aware of its capabilities. She began to use video as an art medium after helping Leonard videotape some artists for an educa· tional program. She likes video now because it gives her "more dimension

than prints," the ability to use move­ mentand sound. She also enjoys getting "art from II box." Possibly the most interesting person at the show is Ritchie. Last year he retired from leaching at the Univ. of Wash. he taught printmaking for 20 years. He instructed Sato, Leonard. and Kuroiwa, and confesses that he is proud of their accomplishments. "Norie W88 one of the first students that I introduced to video. A number of students, when I would bring up video as an art medium, wouJd ask me if it valid, printmaking, or significant. None just said OK We grew together Un video art), " said Ritchie.



Ritchie, himself, had his second en· counter with videotape at PLU. He was helping tape a seminar on "Artists and New Technology," and one of the artists was interviewed at PLU. It was while he was taping the video for the seminar that he became interested in the uses of the new technology. The work he will display at the gallery will be twofold. 'I'nere will be a videotape running, predominantly (perhaps only) of himself. There will also be a series of 36 computer prints of the video images, modified to varying degrees. The works are entitled "36 Views Of The Locus of Beauty" and represent the concept of beauty as something one can identify only by the trail it leaves, as opposed to the 19th century concept of beauty 8.!1 a static eUect. Ritchie said this will be his fourth or fifth show at PLU. In 1972 he did a one­ person show, and nearly ten years later he participated in a multi·artist gallery display. He also lectured on campus last January. He feels that PLU offers a good en· vironment for artists, citing the diverse art department and room given for in· dividual freedom as some of the reasons. He said that from his point of view PLU has the "longest history of supporting new ideas." Geller is enthusiastic aboutthe show. "I get really excited when I can see how artists are using new teChnology to create innovative work," she said.

The show will run from Sunday to Nov. 27. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. The public is invited to the exhibit opening Sunday at 6 p.m. A reception will follow.

Review: Two movies offer strange byMlke Holl

Mast reporter Searching for an off·the-wall comedy but tired of Pee Wee Herman? Then two movies. which recently opened in Tacoma. may be just the ticket. "Better Off Dead," featuring John Cusak who also appeared in "The Sure Thing" and "The Journey of Natty Gann," is funny in a weird way. "Aft« Hours," the latest black comedy from director Martin Scorcese, is just In both movies, a young male is persecuted by a mixed bag of challlcters and must overcome some tough pro­ blems. Neither film is your "run-of·the-mill" movie.



"After Hours" presents an "average Joe" who winds up in the downtown of a large city late at night.and begins his quest to return to suburbia.

The second flIm, "Better Oil Dead." uses every obvious trick it can to elicit laughs. including animation and gross· looking food.

Three things distinguish this movie: the ensemble cast of rising st.ars, in· c1uding Linda Fiorentino and Catherine O'Hara: the rarity of the star (Griffin Dunne) also being the produc«; , Martin Scorcese at the helm, which means almost anything could happen. "After Hours" differs from most com· edies because the audience is never quite sure whether to laugh or scream at the misfortunes befalling the main character. It'a not big on laughs, mostly

The plot revolves around Cusak's character who loses his high 8Chool sweetheart but falls in love with another.


due to a cluttered plot that dwells too much on itself to flow smoothly.

Although not a perfect comedy by any means, "Better Off Dead" is still the better of the two.

Movie-goera who do go out "after hours" will be "better off" with "Better Off Dead."

"After Hours. " rated R, and "Better OffDead, " rated PO, are showing at the Tacoma South Cin�mlU.

"I think we're on the verge of something new this year." _ That's how editor Nancy Wendland describes this year's edition of Sax· ifrage. PLU's creative arts maga%ine.

to present new image this year

Wendland has spear·headed the publication's campaign to branch out beyond the actual published work to in· clude activities that encompass the non' printart..s. "We're trying to make Saxifrage more of a process than a proje<:t." said Wendland. And part of that process i� getting student..s interClIted in the creative arts. Saxifrage plans to sponsor poetry readings. arl exhibits. and tours of Seat· tie art galleries this year.

Wendland said another goal this year is to work more with students who sub­ mit their works for publication, rather than just accept or reject the piece. Anything that can be photographed or print.ed will be accepted to considera· tion in the magazine. including seulpture. Wendland hopes to receive submissions that go beyond the usual. Among other things, she is looking for "a poetic math problem" or poetry writ· ten by a foreign student to be printed in his Or her language, The official invita· tion is for poetry. prose. artwork, photographs, musical compositions. and all creative works. Some other changes in this year's publication may be a change in the shape of the maga%ine and the addition of color prints.

The first S�ifrage was created in 1975 by Megan Benton, who cUlTently lectures in PLU's English department and runs the Elliott at the univer­ s ity. Benton s i the magazine's advisor this year and she guides the ten·person staff, which includes student..s of English. graphic arts and other creative areas. Wendland, an English major with a publishing minor. said five staff members will judge each work and those chosen in this preliminary round will be forwarded to one of three independent judges in Seattle. There will be three judges in art. poE"' t·y, and prose. Students should submit their written work in triplicate and all entries may be taken to Room 220 in the Administra· tion Building. 1.200 copies of Saxifrage will be printed in early May and the issues will be available free of charge.

College enrollment planned to drop half million by 1 993

(CPS) There will be llbout 575,000 students enrolled in college by 1993, the National Center for Education Statistics predicted last week. I n its mo�t recent long·range enroll· ment forecllst, the NCES projected enrollment nationwide would fall from the current estimated 12.25 million studentg to 1 1 .68 million student na· tionwide over the next eight years. \Vhile the decline would leave II number of colleges-especially smaller four·year private colleges-gasping for students and survival. it is a much less severe enrollment drop than the NCES hilS predicted in the past. Starting in the mid'se\'enties, the

NCES ond other agencies predicted precipitous enrollment plunge!! for 1980, 1981. 1983 ond then 1988. Experts foresaw as many as 200 cui· leges closing during the 80s. The doomsday predictions stemmed from a marked decline in the number of 1S. \'ear-olds in the U.S. from 1979 to 1 9 2, CoUeges, of course. hllve always recruited most of their new students from that age category. "From that, people deduced that higher education would lose enrollment. provided the same demographic mix as we had in the early sixties, " said Elaine EI·Khawas, research director at the American Council of Education. Administrators have avoided the big drop by rt.'Cruiting huge numbers of "non·traditional students," people older than 24 who may attend school part time. "It's such a wide ag� group Inon· traditiO:lal gludentsl. It·s hard to work out a meaningful relationship between an age group that large and colle",e at· tendance," asserted Vance GranL the NCES's chief statistician. In 1980, the center projected total col· lege enrollmelll ".amld fall to a lillie more thun I I million students by 1988. Tht' Cl)nter now estimates thut as of the current semester, enrollment dechn· ed by less than ::!50,OOO from the all·time hIgh of 12.5 million in 1983.

He added that the increasing attrac' tiveness of changing careers in later life and the ever'rising participation of women in the workforce also hllve pro­ mpted more " older" people to enroll. However, college adminstrators shouldn't jump for joy just yet. While there are now about 15 percent more "older" students in college than in 1979. thr 22·to-34·year-olds are also a much bigger percentage of the total population than they used to be.

A woman in the front row stares at the wall in front of her while shc blocks, kicks and punches. Thcre is power in every move and it is all coordinated. A man in the back row stops and looks at the others. He has his lert leg n i a front position while the others have their left leg in back position. He swit­ ches his stand and tries again. That's beuer. Lieu checks everybody's position. He stops in front of a woman doing a high block. "Look at your hand. 15 it blocking your head?"' The woman looks up and discovers she could have been hit hard had this been a 'fight.' She lowers her hand until Lieu nods his approval. He gives the order to repeat the exercise one more time and as the woman blocks, he makes a move­ ment illustrating why the block needs to be n i a certain spot right above her head, Lieu started PLU's Tae Kwon Do Club last January after Campus Safety Director, Ron Garrett, promoted the idea. Garrett has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and said he considers martial afl a spOrt PLU should offer,

There was a martial arts club lit PLU for several years, but it folded when the instructor enrolled at UPS, Garrett said. Garrett also pointed to the fact that there is a self-defence class at PLU, but said it is no martial art class,

Kelly Slo&n, one of the women in the club, added,"grace, power and beauty is all encompassed in Tal' Kwon Do."

Self-discipline is a very important ele­ m�nl of practicing Tae Kwon Do, said Sloan. ·'Self·discipline is what this entire thing is built on, You nee<! to discipline yourseU to concentrate and go beyond what you think are your phySical limits," she said. She believes this is necessary in order to fulfill her personal goal to strive toward 100 percent perfecton in the sport. Garrett agreed that Toe Kwon Do re­ quires personal discipline and added that self-discipline is som�lhing everybody should have. Although the number of women join· ingTac Kwon Do clubs is increasing. the sport is still male dominated. Lieu sug· gested that muny women avoid it because they huve the misconception that is a very violent sport and therefore not feminine. Sloan sllid, "There is a big difference between really losing your femininity and society thinking you lose your femininity." She does not think femininity has anytrung to do with whether a womlln practices Tile Kwon Do. Per50nully she said she does it for the art and addt.'<i.

"I wanted to see what it was like and then I liked it," she said. "'t does me good both physically and mentally. It is a good way to take out stress, and when I go home after practice I am really relaxed." The social aspect also plays a role, Habash said. "We all get to know each other really weU."

Garrell said it requires enormous time commitment. "Not many people do anytrung ten hours II week unless it is school spon­ sored," he said. On an international basis the interest for the sport is increasing rapidly now that Tae Kwon Do has become a recognized sport by the Olympic Committee. "In the summer Olympics in Korea in 1988, Tal' Kwon Do will be an exhibition event, and then, n i 1992, it will lpr" bablYI be an official �vent," Lieu said.

A correction from last week's "Sport· swrap": If the polls were have to ended last week. PLU would not receive then automatic regional bid for Region I as Azusa Pacific remains undefeated and is ranked No. 3 in this week's poll, ahead of the Lutes. If the Lute5 are to receive the automatic regional bid, PLU must re­ main undefeated and Azu!'la Pacific must pick up a loss within their next three games.

Parkland 'Pig' roasts in afternoon blaze

by David Steves Mast news editor

A lwO'alarm fire caused approximate­ ly 5150,000 in damage to the Parkland Piggly Wiggly supermarket on Monday afternoon, said Gary Hauenstein, assis­ tant fire chief for the Parkland Fire Department. Quick rcuctions by the Parkland Fire Department "saved the b'TOCery store from being destroyed." said Fire In­ \'cstigutor Floyd Keller of the Pierce County Office of Fire Prevention 8nd ArSQn Control. "When a fire breaks out in II super market, �here usually isn'� much left to rebuild, " Keller said, explaining that na· tion wide, firefighters haven't had much luck in containing blllzes in grocery stores. "The Parkland Fire Department should be commended for its fast ac Lions," Keller said.

"We're certam it could havc been , worse, . Hauenstein snid. "There was cerwinly a big potential for u bigger fire. It wouldn't have been IInothcr minute or ,the whole back room would have been gone "

The blaze broke out Monday after· noon, with a 4:05 p,m, atann calling fire engines and firefighters from Parkland, Spanaway, Summit, Lakewood and Tacoma. When firefighters arrived on the scene there wcre flames in the storage room iLL the south end of the store and the entire building was filled with smoke, Hauens· tein snid. The store had been evacuated by store employees when firefighters arrived. There were no injuries rcsulting from the blaze, Hauenstein said, Keller estimated damage at S50,000. Hauenstein said S15,000 to 520,000 of the damnge was structural. the rest was in smoke damage to perishable goods, Hauenstein said. The structural damage was contained to a portion of the store's south wall nnd the south portion of the roof, "If you were to go in the store, you wouldn't have known it (the fire) had hnppened except for the smell of smoke and a few empty shelves, " HAuenstein said. The fire's cause is still under in· vestigation by the Pierce County office of Fire Prevention and Arson Control.

Keller said "natural causes" such as problems with electrical and heating systems have been ruled out. Human error is the suspected cause, Keller said. " We feel at this point it is an acciden· tal fire," Keller said. Following the blaze, the Pierce County Health Department stepped in, inspec· ting the food in the store for smoke and wllter damage, conducting the inspec·

Campus· Poor study habits cause for low grades by Emily Morgan Mast reporter Students discouraged by midterm grades may be suffering from the effects of poor study habits. But Rick Seeger. PLU's director of adviSing. believes it is never too late to learn how to study. Seeger said there are tWI.'(! sets of necessary skills that enable students to do well in coUege. These include: 11 background skills treading. writing, and math abilities); 21 study skills [understanding study techniques. note taking. and exam preparationl; and 31 self management lability to prioritize and budget time wiselyl.

Seeger said motivation s i essential to the study process. If this is a problem. the student should evaluate why he or she ha.s chosen t.o attend college. Is the student here to please the family or to remain with friends? How does the stu· dent prioritize his or her values? The studying atmosphere is also an important consideration. said Seeger. "The best place to study is where you can do nothing else," he said. PLU student Lynn Smith believes that making a study area barren. "like a monk's celL" using earplugs. and taking practice tests with a time limit are all very helpful. Student Tina McKin1ey said that tur­ ning orr all the lights in a room except for the one over the desk helps 1.0 keep attention focused on books.

Seeger suggests finding a place wnere your friends aren't likely t.o find you. If you do get interrupted. leave your study area and talk elsewhere. This way you distinctly separate where you study and where you socializ.e. Student Stein Nielsen SUgge9�S get· ting off campus for 0 change. He gOC8 to Dash Point Park to study in the car with the radio on. "If students are having trouble. the (Academic Advising Center) should be their first resource." 9aid Seeger. The Academic Advising Center, located on the noor of Ramstad, provides tutors, pamphlets. and counseling for students. A general study method is available, as are papers on eiam preparation, the

differences between objective and essay exams, time management, and how to mark your textbookS. The Academic Advising Center �gan in a small library room in 1973. Today it consists of 17 student tul.ors, two pro­ fessional staff members, an ad· ministrative assistant, and a recep­ tionist. Last year there were 1,000 ap· pointments made for advice and counci L 2,500 students were tutored, along with walk-ins who sought pamphlet information. A designed to help students with their study habits is offered during the first six weeks of every semester" for one credit. Five sections were offered this semester to accommodate about 90 students.

Outdoor Rec uses new eq u ipment, ideas to attract students

by Katha rine Hedland Mast staff reporter

New equipment and new ideas will be used t.o attract more people to activities sponsored by ASPLU's Outdoor Recrea­ tion Committee, said Mark Cook.sley, the committee's co-chair. Outdoor Rac plans outings for students to discover the natural beauty of the Northwest, said Cook.sley. Already this year, hikes were taken in areas such as the Olympic Mountains,

Mount Rainier. and



dl)wn the Skykomish Rjver at the base of the Cascades. Mid·semester break also gave six students the opportunity to spend the weekend in Port Angeles. "It wasn't really that well attended." said Cooksley. "but it was an awesome trip." The group stayed at a beach cabin near Hurricane Ridge on the Olympic Peninsula. This trip was the most expen· sive, so far. Cooksley said. The cost for food. lodging. and transportation was 525 per person. Cooksley said Outdoor Rec provides plenty of interesting trips, and said he wishes more students would take the time t.o try some of them. "We're getting a lot of returners, but we'd like new people. too. We want pe0ple who haven't come n i contact with the committee before tojoin," he said. Cooksley explained that most of the outings are geared toward beginners or those with litUe experience, and he en· couraged aU to participate. He added that most of their day trips, particularly hiking or skiing, cost from $4 to '6. Included among Outdoor Rec's up­ coming activities, hi a new activity call·

ed Orienteering. Cooksley said. This is the art of "route finding, using a rom­ pa89, and finding your way," he explained. "We're very excited about this," said Cooksley. . Outdoor Roc member Kaj Fjelstad . "Everyone should definitely try out orienteering. " The fl1'St meeting for this new activity w Saturday, from 1 p.m. t.o 4 p.m. at Fort Steilacoom Coinmunity College. . . Cooksley said this will be an "informal introductory se9sion." He said the group plans to make an at· tempt to compete in an orienteering meet sponsored by the Northwest Regional Orienteering Club on Nov. l'r. Other upcoming activities include a snow "play day" on Sullday at Mount Rainier National Park. Students will gather with inner tubes and cross coun· .. try 9kis and "have a party in the 3no.,,-. A snow9hoeing trip is scheduled for Nov. 16 and various ski trips will occur all semester as well as every weekend during Interim. Outdoor Rec has existed for 12 year9. " It started out with a bunch of people who were intere9ted in getting together t.o ski and being able to rent equip­ ment," Cooksley explained. Now the office is capable of equipping anyone for an outdoor eJ:pedition. This year the group purehased a dozen new pairs of Rosignol cross country skis. "We rent just about t:verything for tbe outdoor8 except bikes," Cooksley said. "People who have been on the trips have fun. Lots of people hear about them but never come and they should. It's a good time," said Fjelstad.

''It'8 one of those that people don't seem to be taking advantage of on cam' pus. The majority of the campus is not involved and that's the whole purpose of it," Cooksley 9aid. "Besides, the Nor­ thwest is world renown for its outdoor8 and people should be taking advantage

of it. At other schools their outdoor p� grams are just nourishing." Inter-ested student.a nuIIy attend Out­ door Roc meetings' on 1\!.esdays at 6 p.m. in UC 128 or call the Games Room at exten9ion 4013 during Outdoor Roc office hours, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. eVery night.

Hours added to Ramstad com puter user room by Lance Kuykandan Mast staff reporter �omputer students can bang away at their keyboards for an extra two hours a night thanks t.o new hours in the Ramstad computer userroom. Howard Bandy. dean for computing, said the hours were changed last week in response to requests to keep the user' room open Later. The Ramstad room s i now open from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. The Memorial Gym userroom hours will con· tinue to be open from 6 a.m. to midnight. "We got requests in reasonable and sufficient quantity, BIUldy said. to justify shifting the hours. "Some of the pro fessors got re­ Quests." Band\' said.

Consultant.a in the user :-oems also relayed students' requests for later hours. The desire for different hours was brought to Bandy's ottention by stu­ dent members of the computer advisory committee. Band}' said the COllll }uter center has bc!,'Un collecting data indicating when dcnlllOd for tl'rminals is heuviest. They

plan to complete the study in several weeks and wiU be publishing the results in the computer center newsletter and the campus bulletin. The results will al90 be P09ted in both user rooms so students will be able to avoid peak use hours. The results wiU help students deter· minf: when terminals are most likely to btl :\vuiluhlc. Bundy said.

Bandy said the computer cente:- has begun getting resulte from the study already, and has found that the heaviest use i8 in the early afternoons until din­ nertime. "Use is li&ht in the mornings," he said. "People might try the mOming hours if they have the time free." In past years the computer userroom was open 24 hours a day. The hOur8 were cut this year because PLU didn't have the re.3urces to 8tay open around the clock, Bandy said. At the 88me time the number of termin8ls were increased ond another usefToom was opened. An hourly usc charge is also being en­ forced for the first time this year. Students arc charb'Cc $1.25 an hour for using VAX terminals. and 75 cents an hour for th� IIJ�I l'er9Onui Computers.

Foreign students learn English, gain American experience by Katherine Hedland Mast stall reporter

Bader AI·qabandi plans to study police science and security sometime in his future. At age 26 he decided to fur· thur his educaticn in America. AI.qabandi is just one of 50 foreit:n student.!! currently studying English at PI.U. Through the Intensive English Language Institute UELII, these students learn English lind gllin skills that will enable them to attend and do well in American universities. "It's basically geared toward English for academic use," said IELI director Tom Magc. In four clllSseS reading. writing, speaking, and listening comprehension, students learn the basics such as note Ulking, lecture preparation. and how to write research papers. Every class has three levels: beginn· ing, n i termediate. and advanced. Students that go through the entire pro­ gram here will usually ,pend three semesters-fall, spring, and .!!ummer.

In addition to meeting academic needs. the Institute attempts to get foreign students :nvolved in activities on and off campus. IELI plans field trips, sets students up with converso· tion partners. and gives them 0 variety of living situations from which to chose. IELI encourages most foreign students to live either in a residence hall with an American roommate. or with an American host family, Mage said. "In dorms they can get involved with other students. and host families often take students in as if they were a son or daughter, developing excellent reiation· ships." he said.

Univ Congregat ion holds 30th an n iversary service by Oerd·Hanne Fosen

Mast staft reporter

A number of students attending last Sunday's II a.m. University Congrega· tion service in Chris Knut.ten Hall seem· ed surprised w find the room already filled and the service approaching an end. They had either forgotten or did not know that all campus servicC!l had been combined for the 30th anniversary celebration University the of Congregation. John Larsgaard, university pastor at PLU from 1958 to 1969, chose "Do You Remember?" as his theme for the ser· vice. He reminisced about the years when he was at PLU. A number of alumni and former 'PLU employees in the congregation nodded, acknowledging the memories. For students it was a chance to learn what their congregation was like 30 years ago. Following the service a brunch was at· Lended by about 60 people. most of whom were alumni. Jackie Jensen Clark, the author of "Remembering. Celebrlltion and Hop­ ing, A History of the PLU Congregl!.­ tion," gave a speech bllsed on the con­ tent of her book whilt! Brent Uample. president of the congregation. spoke ou the congregation today and its hopes for the future_ Milton Nesvig. Vice l:>resident Emeritus at PLU. is one of the few who

has had the opportunity to follow the development of the University Con­ gregation from its start in 1955 to today. "It has been a vital factor in the life of the u niversity right from the beginn· ing," he said. He pointed out that PLU emphasizes education n i a Christian contell;t. He said the university congregation has "set a tone for the school and shows that we care about the spiritual welfare of the students." Attendance at the University Con· gregation has nuctuated from year to year, said Ne.!!vig. " I t kind of catches on. Sometimes be­ ing nvolved i with the congregation becomes the'in' thing to do." he said. He added that over a period of many years. it has been pretty stable. Nesvig believes that Christians should be living their Christianity every day and that this is what the University Congregation is all about_ "It is OK to go to church." he said, "but if you don't live what you hear and preach, it loses its emphasis_ " He quoted this suying to underline his point. "Your action speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you are saying." Current University Pastor Iton Tellef· son said the University Congregation is the most significant COnb'Tegation in this region. referring to ·.he fact that it has produced a Inrb"C number of pastors. music leaders. and other church leaders.

languli�. Students at IELI come from all over the world and for all different kinds of rea50ns. This semester there are 27 men and 23 women enrolled n i the progrlOm. The majority come from Japan. Many Malaysian students also attend PLU, t:lOd there are student.s from Kuwait and Zaire. AI.qabandi comes from Kuwait. He camll to America to study after being out of high school and working for seven years. The adjustment has been dif· ficult. he said. but his education is very important to him. "Suddenly I decided I wanted to con· my education. I dropped tinue everything to come to school. It's the goal of my life," he said. Kotoyo Yamamoto, 20. is from Japan. She has been at PLU for four months and will complete the advanced level this semester. She commented on the differences between universities here. and in Japan. "CoJlege is different here than in my

country. In Japan. it is very hard to enter a university. but very easy to l,'Taduate. Here it is difficult to get through the work of college." she said. BC(:ause of trull, IIhe believes she will ret:eive a better education in America. She plplUl to attend PLU for at leut two more years and study history and com· munication arts. When students complete the program, they are equipped with skills to help them at any college. While many stay on at PLU, others transfer to other schools to see different parts of the country or save some money. Both AI·qabandi and Yamamoto expressed their difficulties. Yamamoto said she "still gets confused when peopie talk fast," and Al.qabandi. l ike the majority of students, according to Mage, has the most difficult time w ith writing. Both praised �heir instructors and the program. "They're fine teachers. They always help you," Yamamotocommentcd, JELl is administered by an umbrella organization.

Mannelly handles sexual harrassrnent cases by Carla T. Savalll

Mast staff reporter

Nearly all of the sexual harassment complaints heard at PLU are handled in· formally, according to administrative grievance officer Kathy Mannelly. Speaking at Friday 's Brown Bag lun· cheon. Mannelly said 98 percent of the complaints heard each year do not in· volve formal grievantes. One formal grievance was filed by a student against a sUlf{ employee last year, but Mannelly declined to give details. Mannelly handles all complaints level· ed against non·faculty PL.U empluyees. lUck Seeger, director of Academic Ad· vising, and Judy Carr, associate dean for special academic prOb'Tams, are the academic gric\'lInce officers in chllrl,"C of complaintsngainst faculty. �Iannelly said she is ohen the person students go to when they do not know

what else to do. "I listen to what a person has to say and determine ""hether it's a complaint they feel better talking about or whether they want to press charges." she said. PLU's revised sexual harassment policy for students sUites "harassment s i a form of misconduct that violates the integrity of human relationships." Sex­ ual harassment is characterized as inap­ propriate personal or sexually-oriented attention by anyone who is in a position to determine a student's grade or other· wise adversely affect the student's academic performance. The current policy was revised by the Student Life Executive Committee last year because there was not enough Stu· dent emphasi.!!, she said. The original policy was an adaptation of PLU's employer'lllT'ployee sexual harassment policy. "We spent II lot of Lime on ter· minology. What kind of gestures con· stitute harassment and so on. It was

basically a brainstorming exercise. Vice President for Student Life Mary Lou Fenili put it into understandable ter· minology that we all reviewed and com' mented on," she said. The policy was printed n i to the Stu· dent Handbook for the first time this year becllUse it was not a well known policy and students needed to know about it, Mannelly said. Two students have been involved in hllrassment cases in the last eight years, said the faculty member n i volved in the two students' counseling. One incident was handled formally. the other infor· mally through a letter of reprimand and conversation. Both involved PLU facul· ty and neither was fired, she said. "I'm not aware of any cases invol\'ed with a grievance which have resulted in a firing. Some critics of our system would say we're too forgiving. It's more imporlunt to teoch new standards of bcha\'ior. Legal repercussions aren't enough .0 keep standards ups." suid

Another session is planned but no date has been set. Out· side consulUints presented the informa· tion which O'Conner thought was quite good, although she had heard it before. She was more intrigued. she said, by the responses of her colleagues. "Many of them say.

Semrau given Senior Econ award Community college students just as dependent on aid College Press Service Contrary to popular belief. communi­ ty college students an: as dependent on financial aid as their counterparts at four-year institutions. a recently releu· ed survey indicates. The survey, conducted by the United States Student Association (USSAI, shows that about 30 percent of com' munity college students say they would be forced to drop out of school if they didn't have financial aid. Because costs are lower at two-year schools. many state and federal lowmokers assume fi",,"cial oid is not as important to community college students. But the report's authors say that because community colJege students have less income, they are as dependent on financial aid as students attending

more eltp<lnsive four-year schools. USSA legislative director Kathy Orer says the survey results will be used in the group's federal lobbying effort, and as part of the plans to eltpand organi�· ing acth-ity on the nation's 1,300 com· munity college campuses. " The results of the survey didn't sur· prise us, but we are encouragNf by the extent to which community student say they want to get involved more," Ozer says. "A lot of people told us this is the first time anyone had asked them what they thought about higher education issues. " The survey, funded by about $40,000 in grants from the College Board, the Ford Foundation and the American Col· lege Testing Service, is based on the views of about 100 community colJege students who testified at five hearings USSA held last year.

Garrett said he does not know where the money to support the program wilJ come from. Perry Hendricks, vice president for Finance and Operations, is currently studying the university budget to det.ermine where the additional funding will come from. Garrett said. Although for the time being off-campus escort.s are being reinstated, Gar­ �ett said the service is still under study. He said Cnmpus Sorety will be receiv. 109 packets on escort programs from over 400 universities, and that will be correlated for the J nternational Association of Campus Law Enforcement Ad. �inistratim. This information, along with Campus Safety's statistics concer­ mng PLU �s escorts illst year. will be used toevaluatethe program. Garrett said PLU is in a real minority of schools that provide students with off.eampus escorts. ?lore than 90 percent that do are public schools, he said. Verr few private schools will do so because they do not wont to den! with the liabIlity, he said. Garrett said he is seeking funds to provide the service for the rest of this year, adding that "nothing at this university is set in stone."

by Emily Morgan Mast reporter Pam Semrau was recently recognized as this year's winner of the Senior Award n i Economics. Semrau, a senior at PLU, attributes her 3.96 grade point average to "keep' ing busy, along with a lot of faith in God." "This may sound funny," she said, "but I think being really involved has helped." Semrau has played 0:1 the PLU women's soccer team for four years. She

has also worked with a Lutheran church youth group in Puyallup. She said that being busy in athletics has carried over into her academics. forcing her to budget her time and increase her desire to do things well. The Senior Award in Economics is given to the PLU economics major with the highest grade point average after three years. She decided to attend PLU ftfter ap­ Western Whitman, plying to Washington University, and Seattle Pacific University. She originally plann. ed to major in mathematics.

Provost's son dies of pneumonia William K. Jungkuntz, 30, son of PLU Provost Richllrd Jungkuntz, died Tues­ day in New Y ork of complications from bacterial pneumonia. The younger Jungkuntz graduated summa cum laude from PLU n i 1917 with a bachelor of arts degree in music.

He also worked as a cartoonist for The Mast while attending PLU. Just prior to his death he had sib'1led a contract as a cartoonist with Man'el Magazine in NewVork. Provost Jungkuntz could not be reached for comment.

Retired PLU profs pass away on same day

Two of PLU's retired professors died on the same day last month. Arnold Hagen, an education profeS90r emeritus and Olaf Jordahl, a phyaics professor emeritus, both passed. away on Oct. 20. Hagen was 79 years old at the time of death. Born in Elbow Lake, Minnesota, Hagen earned a bachelor's degree from Concordia College n i Moorhead, Min­ nesota in 1931, a Master's degree from the University of Montana in 1941 and a doctors degree from the University of Oregon in 1955. Hagen was a member of the PLU education faculty from 1955 until his retirement in 1971. Survivors include his wife, Eva, sons Ardy of San Francisco and Frank of Los Angeles, one grandson, two sisters. and four brothers. Jordahl died at the age of 83. Born in

Sioux Falls, South Dakota, he earned a bachelor's degree from Luther College in Decorah, Ia. in 1935, a masler's degree from the University of Pittsburg in 1927 and an Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in 1933. In 1940 be became PLU's first full­ time physics professor, serving until retirement in 1969. Jordahl took a leave of absence for a year in 1944-45 to work on the Atomic Ene:gy Commission's Manhattan Project. A faculty research laboratory in the Rieke Sc ience Center is named in his honor. Survivors include h is wife, Catherine, Sons Eric of Portland, Ore. and Peter of Austin, Tex., four brothers, two sisters and five grandchildren. Both families have requested that memorials may be given to either PLU or Trinity Lutheran Church.

AU RA gives college credit for real world experiences by Carla T. Savalll

Mast stall reporter

When the idea of granting college credit for prior non·academic learning was sugt,'1lsted at PLU in the late 70s, Rick Seeger, then director of the Lear­ nign Center, WD!l taken back. "It's rl;!ally a rather radical idea for PLU." He said. "PLU s i not really a radical instiLUtion academically." Nevertheless, seven years later. the Undergraduate Re-entry for Adults Pr0gram (AURA) is showing no sign of fail· ing interest. In fnct. Seeger, now direc­ tor for AURA and the Academic Advis' ing Center, said there are ot least a halfdozen students waiting to enter in the fall. The program is open to anyone 30 years of age or older who has not been enrolled in a baccalaureate degree pro­ gram within the last five years. The pro­ gram works beu, he said. for people who have had one year or less of college experience. AURA students can 5eCk advanced placement up to junior standing. They are granted a one-year provisional ad· mission and must complete a minimum of 12 credits with a grade point average of2.50r higher. They are required. to design a portfolio of essays and biographical information illustrating the non·academic learning they have acquired. Seeger said the portfolio is a "learning autobiography" in which the students highlight their in­ volvement in work, family, church and community. The portfolios are initiated in Psychology 401. Roots to Adult Lear­ ning. AURA students have one year to complete them. From a rotating faculty committee. three faculty members who best repra­ lICnt the academic interest areas of the AURA students are picked to review the portfolios and evaJuate the prior learning ellperiences for college credit. The faculty must reach consensus on the number of credits awarded and number of general university ra­ quiremf'.nts waived. Seeger said AURA students arc re­ quired to complete 128 semester hours for graduation like all other students. However, they pick up a portion of those hours outside the classroom. A max· imum of 38 credits can be granted for prior learning, he said, and they are transcripted as general elective credits. AURA students must still complete all requirements for a major or minor, "same as any other student." Seeger said. The success of the program direcUy relates to its lIClectivity, Seeger said. There is an enrollment limit of 15 students per semester. "There are enough adults in midlife who want to go hack to college but the selectivity has paid of(. Ask teachers here what they think of the AURA stu­ dent," he said. Robert Stivers. religion professor. said that although no one ever identifies himself as an AURA student. he can say generally that the program "turns out really excellent students." Stivers said he is not as familiar with the program as he was six years ago when he was closely n i volved with it.

"I haven't been a s n i volved with it since the last time I went on sabbatical, but I'm tickled pink with the students we get. It adds a dimension of maturity to the classroom, I can generally say that older women as a whole almost uniformally make excellent IItudents becaUllC they have such a de.!lire to learn," he said. Seeger said AURA 9tudenl.S pay a fee for their portfolio assessments which covers the CO.!lt of the program. "If it stays small, we can do it welL From the beginning there's been a feel­ ing that this program should be a special program fOf special people, I don't think it would be a good idea if PLU were to go wholesale in granting credit for prior learning. PLU has work­ ed hard to build a strong academic in­ stit1..!tion with accreditation," he said. The program was initially funded through a three-year federaJ grant, Fund for the Improvement of Post Secondary Education. The gTant, available from 1976 to 1979, also funded the Middle College, Project Advance, Cooperative Education and Global Studies p� gTamS. After 1979, the funding was in­ t.emaliu!d and PLU began paying for AURA and the other programs. which stilleJt1st. Seeger said about 75 percent of the entering AURA students say they want busineS! degrees but over half change their minds before they graduate. The majority of students are women. The motivaiton behind returning to school usually comes from withln, he said Many have raised families and sud· denJy have time on their hands. Others planned to go to college but interrupted those drums to raise families and are just now getting around to their goals. Seeger said there are AURA students who attend PLU with their undergnlduate children. "Most are in college for intrinsic reasons. They have no motivational p� blems," he said.

"If they qualify they can get a Guaranteed Student Loan and work study. which I find ironic because they are working and going to school and we give them part time jobs. If they have any kind of equity in a house they are usually told to get a second mortgage." he said. The financial gamble is worth it. Seeger said. because AURA students feeL as intelligent active adults. they have done some rea1 learning. "What we do is validate parts of that learning. They get a break the 18 to 22-year-olds don't get, but they !AURA students) get scrutinized closer," he said.

Unlike Webb. many AURA students are not able to afford college so they apply for financial aid. Seeger said he finds the entire financial aid process for AURA students ironic.



Don't get MAD, Get Glad

Seeger said it is not uncommon for AURA students to play parental roles in the classrooms, and often it is the younger students who first place them in that role. "They lAURA studnets) enjoy being around a different age group. You can get hung up on being a parent," Seeger said. "It's kind Of intimidating to be 40 years old sitting in class with kids 18 to 22. but it doesn't last long."

Viewpoints Editorial

Within the past couple weeks the PLU community has seen a rash of thefts of student possessions from dorm rooms, tounges, and outside cafeterias. Yet, it Is student irresponsibility that is the chief cause for most of the thefts. Stereos, TV's, and computers worth thOusands of dollars are kepi In dorm rooms, yet st .,--4enls go entire weeks without ever tacking their doors to properly secure their rooms. Students teave backpacks filled with expensive tex· tbooks, compact tape players, and wallets with credit cards lying around the floor i n Iront of the cafeteria as il they were the morning trash. Since students cannot lake their backpacks into the cafeteria and have little other choice than to leave Ihem unattended outside, one suggestion is that the university establish a checkroom in one of the UC rooms outside the cafeteria entrance where students can check their belongings and be assured of their safety. The position could be a work study job thai work to benefit both students and the university. "Ninety percent of all thefts are caused by the owner simply not taking the proper precautions," said �on Garrett, director of Campus Safety. Unlocked cardoors result in rapes from someone hiding in the backseat. A door left open Invites anyone to wander in and take whatever he desires. We in the PLU community believe too often that we are living under the 'Lute Dome'; all protected, all safe. We leave our doors open day and night. We leave our possessions unsupervised for hours, and expect them to be there when we decide to return. In reality, PLU Is an open campus and anyone can choose 10 wander through the dorms and buildings. The campus is actually located in an area with one of the highest rape and burglary rates in Ihe state. Students are lucky Ihat more has not been stolen. Anywhere else in the world, we would take the care to lock up our bikes or bolt our doors. Why Is it that when we get to PLU we think that crime will not affect us? If only we would not be so naive and make the effort to lock our doors and keep an eye on our possessions, we would have far fewer things stolen.

Students, proper English not best of partners

Tragic, but true. it came like a shot out of the dark and hit me hard as a rock. Colder than a mackerel. Stiffer than a board. J was suddenly a victim of what near· ly every college student contract.s at cer· tain point.s in rus or her life-destruction of the English language. It's scary. It looked like another tragic case of bhlbimosis, the term for the latest college craze. Though we try hard not to admit it, we are easy prey for new slang words or, worse yet, worn out. bellt up. mutilated. stamped on and stretched out cliches be­ ing slung at us from every direction. Uow many times do you find yourself repeating a canned phrase over and o\'er- iJne you would trunk would be ab o solutely moronic if you knew whal you were actually communicating? Take for instance. the average passing conversation. "Hi Jerryr· '·Ui Christine!·· . . . " How are you doing?". .·'Oh. just line.·· . . . then walk away. Do you ever trunk about what you are saying? You would feel terrible by say· ing you are just fine when in reality you fell out of your loft and ran late to class wearing two different socks and your shirt on backwards. .. But if you ever screamed out, No! I'm not fine! I'm having a TERRIBLE day! I got my jagging sweat.s stuck in the .....asher and my sister is going out with the star of 'Revenge of the Nerds". you would simply be written off as a manic depressant. a grouch or just un· sociable lor all three).

But a passing conversation gets away with everytrung. There's a new string of coined words in the hearts and minds of PLU students. . How about the classic word "sweet. , The word has taken on a whole new meaning since Webster first put it in rus dictionary. Now the word is used in every form of the English language. "How did you do on your test, Joe?" ··Sweet, man. Sweet,'· ·'That WIiS sooo sweet to have real let· luce at lunch today." There are other linguistic master· pieces, including ··toast: ecore," '· gorfball, · · and ·· whipped.·· Most people can score booalS, hoops or points, but scoring on women? It gels even worse. Several research teams are currently working in unison at Harvard and Cal tech trying to determine exactly what a ··gorfball" is, but early reports confirm it's something be:woon II Lute �a neosac· charine galvoslab with gold horns) and a baseball with it.s outer skin ripped off. Invariably, girls and guys are ··wrup­ ped" by each other. To most parent.s and people from the 'old school,· it sounds a little violent, but the blabimosis bug strikes in nem-Iy every situation. The problems of blabimosis are multiplying daily. Someday a bright young college graduate will donate rumself to science and find a vaccine to stop AIDS and blabimosis all in one shot. But until then, we just have to endure. So, it's time to hit the road. Take off. Boogie. Later on. Catch ya. "'fl' Serw>c:.

Veteran'S Day time to pause, remember by Gregg SmUh

Today is a special day on our nation·s """"'. On this day, we will pause to honor the veterans of all wan and pay tribute to those who won our independence and guarded our freedom for the past 200 years. During that time, more than 40 million Americans shouldered arms to provide for our national security. Today, the 24 million living veterans and their families ' plus the living dependents of deceased veterans · number about one­ half of our population. Many of us see Veteran!! Day as just another day for lpeeche.s. music, and parades. But it is more than a time for celebration. It s i an opportunity for Americans to honor the vetersn's memory and to rededicate ourselves to the cause of freedom. We owe our veterans respect and gratitude. They have earned it by their patriotism, courage, and sacrifice. This feeling about the American veteran has been shared by most Americana since the early days of our Republic.

American veteran.s are members of a patriotic group. They liave proved in the most concrete terms their love of Coun· try. They have .sacrificed time, energies, health, and life that we all might enjoy the blessing of liberty. Tribute to our veterans has a deeper significance than a mere upression of gratitude for a job

COMMENTARY well done. We cannot discharge our .solemn obligatioD to them and their comrades with mere words of homage. George Washington lpoke up for the veterans of the American Revolution in these words: "We mUlt give gratitude to men who have rescued UI from the jaws of danger and brought UI to the honor of Independence and Peace." The meaning of the first Armistice Anniversary was broadened n i 1954, after World War II and the Korean War had demanded additional service and sacrifice, when President Eisenhower redesignated Annistice Day as Veterans Day to honor the veterans of our wars.

They are heirs to a proud trodition of the 40 signatories of the Constitution, 23 of whom served in the Army. Twelve were members of the militia, and 11 had served in the Continental Line. Yet they vested :.n the Congress of the United States the power to raise armies and provide a navy, to declare war, and to levy taxes. Those 23 men proceeded to hold multiple offices · II served in the Senate; seven served in the House, one became Speaker; two becameCabinet of· ficers; four became ministera for foreign countries; eight became judges; eight became governors; and of course, Genera] Washington became President of �he Unit.ed States.

ly to a.ssess its accomplishments of the past, but also to determine its duties and respon.sibilities of today and of the future. It is therefore fitting that we honor our veterans today for their efforts in preserving and upholding America's ideals. In doing so, we eXpress apprecia.· tion for the great achievementa of the past. Beyond that. however, we rededicate ourselves, renewing our strength to meet successfully any re­ quirements: which lie before us.

We could not in honor stand here to merely say thanks and nothing more. We now enjoy liberties that our veter-ana fought to pruerve. In return, we must fight as valiantly as our veterans did to ensure these same blessings for our posterity.

Thus, Veterans Day 1985 is not only a commemoration of the past, but a pledge for the future '"' we work together in the caU8e of world peace. In pursuit of this goal. the nation has to pay the price for freedom and security. There are burdens which must be borne, but Americans bave Willingly borne them before · and they will not flinch from the task now.

So, in a eense, Veterans Day affords the entire nation an opportunity not on·

Letters School of Business scheduling policy questioned To the Editor

Thanks again must go to certain in· dividuals in the business department for anticipating ,he academic needs o( the students in regards to the interim scheduling of Business Policy IDA 455). Again this year SA 455 land its equivalent BA 4561 are very popular classes for us business students to enroll in during Interim. This year's expected enrollment in these classes was to at least approach 90·100 students. But yet the business 'department only scheduled one class of BA 455 and one class of BA 456, with the student enrollment limit being 24 in each class. So. what to do next? Well, if you follow the business department's business policy, then you "weed out" the students who haven't met the prerequisites of SA 455. As it turns out in my case, they did this, and said that I hadn't met my math require­ ment (which wss incorrect). So, 10 and behold, I'm not eligible for BA 455. Pointing this error out after receiving my tally card, I was told that this pro­ blem was probably the registrar's fault (which it wasn't). Additionally, I was told that even though a mistake had been made, that I was out of luck n i regards to getting into the more convenient SA 456. Instead, I was allowed to sign up for another hBstily added SA 455 class that will probably be taught three nights a w�ek dUring Interim lagain thinking of the students' needs). What is even more shocking is the fact that I personally talked to at least three other students who hBd this same thing happen to them. They were declared ineligible for BA 455 wrongfully. It really mtokes one wonder whether these mistakes were in· tentional or accidental. I would think accidental-but what does this say about our business administrators' com' computer's lor petence their competence)?? Of course. it may be pointed out that this .....eeding out process may have caught a few students who didn't possess the prerequisites of BA 455, but this simply cannot justify the erron that ....ere . made-errors that are seeming· ly made on a great number of tally cards each semester. F'or now, what I ....ould . sugge!t is that either the business department add more policy clnss(es) during Interim, bcclluse they knew well aheud of time this year thut o\'er-crowding was going to occur. or liS !l friend of Illine sug·

gested. maybe they should just hand out tally cards to everyone who is n'ght(ully eligible for BA 455. and then let their registration times decide who gets n i to clas:<!. At least this way the process is (air and equitable (by credit hours com· pleted). I mean, who knows how many other students were carelessly bumped out ofclass by some computer mistake. I know that, likely, a number of rea.sons will surface as to why the business department can se either of my aforementioned ideas, but there is no way that number can exceed the number of students who feel "wronged."

Burglars hit off-campus homes Student vents feelings over stolen backpack by Kristi ThC'rndike Projects editor

I ( was the beb-inning ofanother week,

The cinnamon and peanut buller toast and a second cup of coffee got me ready to start the day, I placed my breakfast tray on the conveyor belt and pushed th rough the heavy doors leaving the Commons, My watch read 7:55. Class would swrt in five minutes. I /,"Tabbed my black wool coat and thruSl my arms into the 5Iee\'es, The rain was lightly falling. Luckily I'd remembered my umbrella. I reached for my backpack. A jolt of panic shot through me. My pack was gone. O,K., so who's playing the joke? I glanced around looking for the wiseguy who took my pack. Sleepy students were rushing to their " S o'c1ocks." None of them looked in the mood to play 8 joke. This was a stupid gag to pull on somoon e. Maybe it was picked up by accident. SUrely no one is dumb enough to mistake the wrongpack for their own. A ner vous twitch shot up my spine. My eyes scanned along the bench area. The space underneath was barren. One ycllow pack rested on the seat beside a blue book hag. My black pack wasn't there. The thought of somoone stealing my pack rushed into my head. 1 tried to block it out. and began searching the UC. My fa� heated with frustration, I broke out in a cold sweat, Two religion papersdoneearly were in that pack. A Press Law assib'llment was typed and ready to be handed in. The en. tire semester's worth of notes. assignmenLs, quizzes and tests were gone. Books, a wallet and a checkbook would nC(!(f replace­ ment. I was Illso outan umbrella. T Lutheran Church.

ing. I frantically dug through the closets, searched under the seats. along walls and in the restroom, No pack, Late to class and feeling helpless, I made my way past the In. formation desk and out into the rain- umbrcllaless and without my books. My eyes watched every pack go by, None were black and none were mine. I'd heard rumors about backpack theft. I thought it mostly happened around finols when people were stressed about exams ..elling the teXLS and maybe wanted to make an extra buck hy re. to the bookstore. Wasn't this a 'nice Christian schoo!'? Campus Safety said pack thieves usually steal the valuables out of the packs- money, calculators, books- and dump the rest, A Campus Safety worker searched in the garbab'C Cllns in the UC restrooms and through the shrubbery around the UC shorL­ Iy after I phoned. No pack turned up. On my way to lunch I spotted my black pack against the wall. A wave of relief flooded through me. Someone must have taken the wrong pack after all lind returned it. Eagerly grabbing it, I opened the zipper and pulled everything out. My books were gone from it, my wallet wllsn 't in the front pocket and the pens and pencils were even different, The pack wasn't mine. Flushed and embarrassed over my actions, I crammed everything back in the pack, It looked just like mine. but it wasn't, It'!:! been a ""eek and a half and my pack still hasn't been found. The religion papers had to bt, redone and the media law assignment rewritten and retyped. The e1nss notes arc gone. I took midterms without them.

nes TourUotte said he thinks "someone was wat­ ching the house" and knew that he and his roommates were at the dance. The robbers dldn" take the champagne and beer trom the ratrlll_rator. Tourtlotte said this led him to believe the thieves were not juveniles. "Juveniles would have taken II," he said. So far the students have not heard any news regarding the recovery of the slolen lIems. "We talk to the sherllfs but they can" do anything unless someone gives them a lead," Moore said. Another robbery took place at 502 S. 127th, about five weeks ago at a house rented by Marl!: Rill, Wall Miles and Aaron Llnqulsl. Rill said a burglar entered through a kitchen window and preceded to take a wallat and some VHS tapes. Nothing else was touched. Moore said the residents 01 the two broken Into homes were unsure who committed the crimes. "We don't know who did II or 11 11's the same people," Moore said. "But I know we're not going to be bringing anything (01 value) back here," he said. Another break·ln occurred at a Bryn Mar apartment rented by three PLU Juniors. Caryn Collom, Kristin larson and Whitney Ahrendt lost nothing 01 greal monelary value 10 the thieves. "II must have been aome kids, because they only took cheap Jewelry and didn't touch the more expensive stull like my pearls," Ahrendt said.

this year. said Brod McLane, assistant campus safety director. McLane said a Significantly greater number of bags are being stolen from outside the Universi· ty and Columbia CenteTa' dining toOrruJ than�last year. Some bags have even been taken when they . were inside the dOOl1l near the cashiers. '"' "This is ridiculoua," said Naomi Tribe, who8e pack was stolen about a month ago. " We need to :! ':':.� done. We're not talking lollipop t McLane said that it is not rare for backpacks to be lost from tbe area inside tbo doors. "Things are being taken from right under our noses. Obviously they're being taken by someone who looks like a student.. It probably is one,"

McLane 68id. J\.kLane reported that appro:riroatcly 80 per­ cent of the pecks taken tum up, without the valuables, soon after their disappearance. Tribe's calculator was missing when her pack was found

behind the UC. "This is becoming so routine that now when we get a report of 0 pack being stolen we imm6diate­ Iy send an officer to go and search �hrough gar· bage cans and batbrooms for them," he said. McLane said Campus Safety has discussed with Food Service the possibility of letLing _ students take their bags into the dining rooms. Director Bob Torrtms said he won't make this -' "I'll continue to support the policy !forbidding packs in the dining area) 100 percent, he "Theft. s i up in the UC, but Food Service and I · reel unjustly criticized.

He rec.o�, that students try to leave r �� while eating and that they bags in v.e bles such as wallets or not leaVil ' valua checkbooks In bags thatare Jeft out. Campus theh is not limited to the eating facilities. Students diacover it.enu ruisaing from bathrooms, lau ndry rooms. and their dorm rooms. Clothing is often among the missing items.

MclAne said However, they do anger students and may cause them to be more cautious lPIlth their beionainP, said Crystal Weberg.

Now I don 't want to keep anything in there." Someone stranded Debbie Miller without I Homecoming formal when it was taken out of her Kreidla!- closet four days before the dance. Miller said' she usually locks her door unless "it's just for 15 or 20 minutes" when she is nearby. Scott Groh, third·yeer resident of Hong Hall, is missing two jaekets he believes were stolen from his room. "I never used to lock my door, and it's never been a problem until now," he said. Bookstore· theft is also on the riM, Director Laura Nole said. She said Itudents eteal text books and try to get refunds for them. Bookstore employees also find empty boxes and containers hidden by people who have removed and stolen the corite!lts. she said. "It's getLing to the point where I'm con.sider­ ing putting in 'a security system similar to the one in the library," Note said. She said she has diSC\l.S3ed it with a n!presen· tative of a eecurity company and would like to in· clude an alarm syst.em in next year's budget. � Nole explained that 2 to S percent of the bookstore's aales are "walking out the door.

" I wouldn't think it would happen at PLU. I don't know who is do­ ing it, but it makes me feel bad. It hurts my feel­ ings, I guess, like someone is slealing from my home.':

Pacific Lutheran campus lies in area with highest crime rate PLU is located n i a district with the h.ighest overall crime rate n i the West Precinct, wh.ich includes all of unincor­ porated Pierce County, said Curt Ben· son, Pierce County deputy in charge of crime prevention. The disLrict leads the precinct in rapes, assaults , burglaries a nd the fts. Pierce County itself is second only to King County, which includes the Seattle metropolitan area, in reported crimes. The amount of crime occurring in the city of Tacoma far surpasses the amoun� of crime occurring in cities of relatively the same size. Rilliegh, NC, Lincoln, Neb., and Springfield . Mass., are all relative in size but have less reported crime.

In 1983, the Tacoma Police Depart· ment reported a total of 15,215 Part One offenses, down from the 11,189 in 1982. Part One offenses include murder, ford· ble rope, burglary. assault, theft. rob­ bery and vehicle theft. As of September 1984. Tacoma's crimestatisties hod already passed the pre\'ious year's Part One crimes t.otnl.

Nationally, reported crime "'"8S down

five percent in 1983.

Despite the national decrease,

sociologin Marvin Wolfgang said in a New York Times article that U.S. crime staListics are still high relative to other civilized populations. "We're two to 10 times more violent than any country in Western Europe. And the comparison with Japan is even Inore drastic." Wolfgang said. The Federal Bureau of Investigation's 1983 Uniform Crime Report cites a n� mber of factors affecting increases in

-Popu.lotion dCflJity. Crime rates in· crease in Pierce County as rural areas give way to suburban and urban areos. ·Popu.latiotl stability. Tacoma, and the Parkland area especially, has a large transient population from the military bases, said Henson.

Sergeant recommends Crime Watch tips Donn rooms, houses 0.00 apartments

are usually poorly protected against

theft. said Curt Benson, Pierce County deputy in charge of crime prevention. Many homes have oruy Iocldng door­ nobs, which Benson described as effec­ tive " only for keeping the door dosed in a stiff wind," and inadequate locluJ on windows and sliding glass doors. Benson recommended the following Crime Watch tips:

·Since doornobs and chain latches are too easy to force open, crime prevention eJ:perta recommend a deadbolt lock with a one-inch throw. Installing such • lock. and a peephole for doors. are basic prevention measures. For windows, install window locks. They're inezpensive and provide some •

extra security. Another idea la to get

wedge devices that prevent windows from being opened, or alJowyou to open them an inch or two for ventilltion but prevent opening them wider, Sliding gla.!9 doorl are a apecia.I problem because they can be forced open lidewayl or simply popped out or the track. There are variOUI inexpensive items, such as a Charije bar or su� plemental locluJ. which will give yOu bet· ter protection. Check with your crime prevention officer, locksmith or hard· ware dealer.

·Never have a name or license tag at­ tached to your house keys. If keYI are lost or stolen you'll liave an unwelcome visitor very quickly. ·Don't welcome burglars by telephone! Burglars often try to find out ifanyone is home by phOning, If you get several suspicious " wrong number" calls or "nobody·at-the-other-end" calls, tell the police. Warn family members, or friends you're living with, not togive out infor­ mation by phone- especially about·who is home. who is out, how long anyone la expected to beout. ·Make it harder forburgiars to "case" your home by phoneby avoiding names on mailboxes or on doors. Your name on display only makes it.easier for the burglar to look your number up in the ",",,-.

repair people and others who claim to have business inside to show poeitive identification and keep the door closed while you study the identification though the peephole. If you have t.he slightest doubt, telephone their superiors back at. work, getting the number from your directory. If you wish to help a lost or stranded motorist, make the call while he or she waits outside, ·When you do admit a worker or a eaieapenlOnyou were expecting, do not leave them alone at .ny time, ·If, deapite these precautions, a burglar does get into your home, don't offer a "bonus" of cash or easily-carried jewelry. Never keep large sums of cash orjewelry around the house.

.Keep a dog at your house if-you can. If the dog makes Doiae(and moat dOg! willI it'l enough to'cauae . burglar to look for easier- and quieter- picking., ·Ifyou can afford it, you might consider a good alann Iystem, but. buy only from reputable, established dealers, and uk for references. -Try to keep your borne looking "lived in" while you're away, even if it's only for the weekend, Soask a trusted neighbor to keep an eye on your place and to pick up papers and mail The neighbor. or an inexpensive electric timer, can tum your ligbts off and on.

.U you'll be.way fromyour home foran extended time. tell your law enforce­ • mentqency.

·Don't open your door to anyone with no business inside. This ian'tjust to guard apinst robbery by force of threat of force; sometimes burglars who have DO intention of using force will fU'St tly toget in under some pretext so they can scout. out valuables and st.udy locluJ, winoW! and other means OfeDLry.

·The best lOck in the world is worthless if it isn't locked. Always lock up. •Any licensed locksmith can chan", the t.umblers in your outside door locks quickly and inexpensively. So when you move into a home or apartment., have it done. If you lose a key, change the lock tumblers.

·Don't be generOUI in passing around i the extra keys. One might end up n hands of someoneyou don't tI1.lSt.. Don't leave an "emergency" key under the door mat, on top of the door frame, or in any other "hiding spot" so well-known to burglara. ·Keep car keyl and house keys separate.

Students put money on the line, play the stock market by MIriam aacon

Business students are playing the stock market and winning, Those involved with PLU's Student Investment Fund (SIFt are taking what they've learned in the classroom and testing it in the the real world. "We have earned approximately 115.000 since 1981." said Charles Brust, chairman oftbeSIF, The fund was created. by Mary Lund Davis, who originaUy endowed $25,000 to the school of business to provide an opportunity for business students to learn about investing in the stock

market, Brust said, "The main PUfPOse is not to make money but to leam how to invest," he said. "How to make smart decisions," "We've made good decisions, We've n i creased our portfolio value," said Brust. There are 10 members on the board Each member keeps track of an industry and prepares a report. "We look at the financial strength of the ctlmpany," Brust said_ "We look at what type of business it s i ." The most common characteristic that all investor! look at is the price divided by earnings ratio WE ratio), he said. "The PE ratio is a reflection of how

HARRASSM ENT, from page 3 ceptable to one person often is not to another," she said, In order to help students deal with the emotional turmoil of an harassment situation, ManneUy often accompanies students who are too ntimidated i to ctln­ front professors with complaint.5, She also helps students write letters of repri­ mand and confront department or divi­ sion chairs on tbe student's behelf, During the Brown Bag lecture, O'Con· ner presented a videotape produced at the University of Rochester. The tape defined sexual harassment as a means of sexual attention to establish power. Both O'Conner and the tape explained that harassment is frightening and defeating to a student becau8e they are weakened by their subordinate position. "It makes it tough to know how to manage,a situation because you're in a less powerful situation," she said. Sexual harassment is easier to define the longer it OCCW'8, according to O'Conn"Or. "If it happens over a period of time it's more abusive, It's a slimy feeling. You say, 'I'm not relu:ed or comfortable as a student,'" she said. The videotape outlined four resu1ts of sexual harassment to women: It Self-esteem usually suffers as a woman struggles to det�e whether she solicited t� unwanted attention.

2) There is a struggle to deal with the fright that often follows a harassment, nducing i stress related illnesses. 3) A woman feels trivial.ized as a mere sex object. 4) Rumors of faculty and ad­ ministrative misconduct spread causing women to boycott particular institu­ tions that have harassment problems. O'Conner said it is a no win situation at' times because women are afraid to complain for fear that they will be blam­ ed for the behavior or will be treated moreharshly in classEven if a professor and student are bot.h willing to enter a sexually intimate relationship. o'Conner said. she does not think it is a good idea while the stu­ dent is in class or enrolled in the university. "All the dynamics of a lover's quarrel come into the classroom. It carries over to other students who fBei cheated It becomes everyone else's problem if it's not handIed because we're in the c said she is frustrated about sexual harassment on college campuses because it threatens to destroy legitimate and healthy relationships bet· ween faculty and students.

He said the performers arc simp­ ly using n "di fferent way to com' municate" how Christianity works in their lh'es. "Whether you're a Christian or not, there is a calling to commitment in the message it brings." said Neufeld.

The PLU Coconut Club is not n group of exchange students from the tropics. Neither is it a baking club, nor n group of devoted pina colada drinkers. The Coconut Club is a gathering of students who share an interest in art and want to have fun. according to club president Steve Petrinovich. "We're not artsy·fartsy," said Petrinovich. "and .....e don't want to be .. overbearing. He said the goals of the club are LO expose people to art and "to brenk down the barrier between art majors and non·art majors." Petrinovich said five of the club's 19 members are not art mnjors and everyone is invited to join.. The club sponsors trips to Seattle art gaUeries on the first Thursday of every month. The artists whose work is exhibited arE' often available to discuss their art. Petrinovich describes these outings as " a really nice break from routine." The Coconut Club received its name four years ago after members decided that The Student Art Guild sounded too sluffy, So, on the suggestion of a professor, the gn;:up renamed itaelf after a New Yock night club. Since that time a good deal of tropical and cocoanut paraphernalia has been collected in the club's office. The club originated in 1969 and its membership has fluctuated over the years. . . People have come and gone. the last couple years have been declining years," said Petrinovich. " J'd like tochange that," The Coconut Club has also been involved with raising money to purchase art· ",:ork and equipment for the art department. Although the group receives a sub­ Sidy from ASPLU, it is baSically self·funded. The club's latest fundraising effort was a piZUl sale in the UC on Halloween night, In the past the group has organized sales of student artwork and at this year's Nov. 23 Yule Boutique in Olson Auditorium a booth will be available for any stu· dent artist who wishes to sell artw()fk. Club membera are becoming more involved in setting up and organizing Wekell Gallery exhibits. A scholarship for students interested in becoming a museum curator is being considered. as well. Petrinovich said he believes art students at PLU are isolated from other stu den� because Ingram Hall is on the edge of campus and it is surrounded by . reSidence haUs. Dennis Cox, chair of the art department. said when the com· mu�ication arts department moves its offices and classes to Ingram in the • sprmg, art students may attract more attention from other students. Cox said artwork is very different from nUrsing (the group that previously occupied In�"1'Dm). "Nursing requires a clean and neat area, but art is not neat. 1 think com· munication artswill share some of Our disciplines and practices," he said. Upcoming events sponsored by the Coconut Club include a speaker and a dance. A potluck dinner is scheduled for Friday and any interested students are invited. A faculty and student football game will precede the dinner. Far directions. contact

Peterson lIaid non·Christians often seem disinterested in Christian events. "However," she said. "a shocking amount of people come to the altar calls given:' Audience members nre often asked to dedicate their lives to Christ during public performances. Neufeld said he accepts the music of most Christian artists. "Psalm 100 says 'make n joyful noise unto the Lord,'" he said. "Whatever that noise is. that's the way you need to express yourself."

Lutes' quarterback Jeff Yarnell threw four touchdowns passes and Jeff Gates scored three times as PLU now faces Western Washington this Saturday in Bellingham. Fans should take note of the new kickoff time of 1 p.m., not 1:30 p.m. as previously scheduled. The Lutes look to move up in this week's national poll, following ties by No. I Northwestern of Iowa �O-O) and No. 3 Azusa Pacific (28·281. Azusa Pacific is the only Area 1 team ahead of the Lutes in the playoff chase.

The Lutes completed 19 of 23 passes for 313 yards. The Clansmen were 9 for 26 for only 18 yards. The Lutes got on the scoreboard first with a Mark Foege field goal. Yarnell hit Gates 20 seconds later for the second PLU score of the day. There was more where that came from.

PlU shoots down Pirates' aerial attack, stretches winning streak to 1 0 games by Clayton Cowl Mast staff reporter It took a third-quarter rally to spark a 35·22 Pacific Lutheran homecoming grid victory over Whitworth in a Colum· bia Football League battle held last Saturday at Lakewood Stadium. A powerful passing attack led by Whitwmth's junior quarterback Cliff Madison, currently third in national NA IA passing. cranked up and con· nected for 406 aerial yards to provide the Lute defense 1tith one of its biggest challenges of the season. The Pirates tied the game 7·7 just before the halftime gun and went ahead 10·7 in the third period, but four PLU touchdowns in just over six minutes in the third period crushed Whitworth's upset hopes. A 12'point fourth'period rally by the Piraws fell short after two fourth down attempts were stymied by PLU. After a scoreless first quarter, the Lutes got on the board first when PLU quarterback Jeff Yarnell hit running backJud Keirn on a Io-yard scoring toss

with 12:30 left in the .second frame. The 58-yard drive was keyed by an ll'yard dash by Mike Vindivich and jaunts of 12 and 8 yards by Mark Helm from his fullback position. Whitworth's Brian Steams picked off a pass at his own 41 and bounced orr five tacklers before finally being hammered out of bounds at the PLU 22. A defen· sive holding call kept the struggling drive going for the Pirates as Madison rifled a touchdown pass to Mark Houk on fourth and goal from the nine-yard line. Madison went back to the air in the se­ cond half, .hitting Larry Kelly on a 29·yard reception to the PLU 39 and 11 36'Yl1rd toss to Scott Ralph at the eight. yard line after I1n illegal motion penalty to set up a 36·yard field goal by Robert Coleman. Facing their flfSl .second·half deficit of the season. PLU responded with four quick scores to put the game out of reach. On the ensuing kickoff. a reverse on the return saw Jud Keirn tightrope the sideline 80 yards to the Whitworth 23 and Yarnell capped the drive with a 19·yard screen pass and run to Mike Vindivich. On the next PLU series, the Lutes scored three times, but recorded only six points on the scoreboard. A 50·yard touchdown run by Vindivich and a 48-yard touchdown pass to Craig Purey resulted colled back on holding and dip­ ping penalties, respectively. A 47·yard touchdown pass to Vindivich on the next ploy finally counted at 6:44 left in the third period as the Lutes went on top21·10. PLU stopped a fake punt attempt on the next drive with the aid of on inelligi' ble receiver downfield call to take over at the Pirate 15. Three plays later, Mark Helm plowed n i to the end wne from five yards out for a PLU score. The first of two interceptions by defensive back Mike O'Donnell of the Lutes set up a 46·yard scoring strike from Yarnell to Puzey to cap a one-play ddve. Mark Foege's extra point made it 35-10. Whitworth got b8ck on the board with 10:39 remaining as Madison hit Kelly on a 55·yard touchdown pass, but a two­ point co.wersion attempt fai l ed.

Sportswrap by Mike Condardo Mast

Ten cheerleaders climb onto each other's backs forming a symmetrical joins crowd th" as pyramid them in the cheer. "We Are...The Lutes." Following 8 P LU touchdown, one of the male cheerleaders lifts a female copart high into the air above his head. These stunts used to be common-place among cheerleaders including the Lutes eleven·member autumn squad and t.he seven·member winter/spring squad. But things have changed due to a decision handed down by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAiA). which basicaUy says two things: A.I Pyramids or stacking of bodies by cheerleaders shall be disallowed at NAJA district. biltri-district. area or national events. D.) No external force shall be used by cheerleaders to propel the body a t NAIA district. biltri-district. area o r national events {example: trampoline, springboard, clasped hands). These fe9trictions were handed down only for the post·season in a eport issued by the NAIA. The decision was made after a three year study was completed by the Athletic Trainers Association and the Medical Aspects of Sports Committee concerning the injuries cheerleaders acquire through theactivities they perform. Shortly following the NAJA's decision. PLU Director of Athletics Dr. David Olson and Pre9ident William Rieke reviewed the NAJA's decision and decided to apply these regulations to the entire seuon. The decision to J:arry over to the en' i a memo from Olson to LaUfalee Hagen. Director of tir e season appeared n Residential Life and advisor for the cheer squad. The memo reported that the decision was made "To prevent safety and well· being of our cheerleaders and to minimize the liability of the institution. we feel it is imperative to follow these regulations throughout the year." The NAJA's letter sounded much in the same way. "In that the national body has taken such action. your institution may be assuming certain legal risks in allowing cheerleaders toperform activities deemed unsafe by the association." It sounded asif the most important part of this decision in the NAIA's eyes was their liability in the case of one of the cheerleaders being hurt. The NAJA in the tone of their letter appears to be trying to scare the sense into the athletic i to its directore. When both the NAJA and PLU implemented this decision n athletic policies, the first worry was their liability. What about the cheerlesders? Don't they matter? It·s not that the cheerleaders are just going to up and quit. They are open to some changes. But the matter of the fact is that the squad was not even con­ sulted on this decision until Oct. 24 when Dr. Olson issued the decision. Accor­ ding to some of the members of the squad. Olson didn't even bother to check out what kind of precautions the squad takes to avoid injury. One of the changes the squad is willing to make is to follow the guidelines �ug­ gested by a comprehensive report on "Maximizlng Safety In Cheerleading," written by Gregory Webb (Vice President of the Universal Cheerleaders Associa­ tion), Linda Edwards 1F0rmer Cheerleading Advisor at the University of Utahl. and Gary Sharp, who is a certified athletic trainer. These people have anayzed. the injuries involved in cheerleading and used 1982 as a year for their study noting all the eases that ocurred that year. Of the 14.582 surveyed. the report pointed out that ankle injuries account for 25.7 percent of all injuires accumulated in cheerleading and that 341 of the 604 total injuries in that year came during practice sessions. The report. also lists some guidelines that the squads should follow in warming up for cheering and stunts. as well as strict guidelines for performing stunts and building of pyramids.

i willing to compromise and not totally dispense with the The PLU squad s stunts, but go by the guidelines set down by the "Maximi.ting Safety" report. Another dilemma that was brought about by the decision handed down by Olson and Rieke was that leaves the male cheerleaders out in the cold. DUring tryouts. the male cheerleaders were specifically judged on how well they perform. ed the stunts and pyramids. as well as how their female coparts felt about how they were lifted and how well the male performed the stunt overall. But now that the picks for the winter/spring st.aff hove been made for quite some time. this happens. As one male cheerleader put it, ''I'd look pretty ridiculous out there doing kicks. We would be kind of useless just standing around out there with a megaphone when I could be directing my energies somewhere else." Before male cheerleaders were elected to the squads beginning a couple years ago, guys used to volunteer as cheerleaders for the Lutes. Since men staned be­ ing selected to the squad, the caliber of cheerleading at PLU is extremely high. But now the cheer squad has sort of "Got the rug pulled out from under them"attitude. Sure there are going to be injuries in cheerleading just as there is in any other athletic activity. Look at PLU's football team. Greg Kennedy and Steve Welch have been out for the season due to injuries obtained through their sport. What is the difference between athletics and cheerleading? In every respect, cheerleaders are aU·Jetes. They train just all hard as the athletes do. they practice long and hard hours and they peform athletic stunts just as athletes do. Some consider them a cross between spect.aton and athletes. How could cheerleaders be considered !p6Ctators? Try lifting your roommate over your head and do some of the moves the way PLU's cheerleaders do and then uplain to me how they cannot be considered athletes.

Maybe this situation would be bette!' understood if we compared it to a car. If there is an automobile accident and someone gets injured, do we solve the pr� btem by taking all the cars off the road? No. we take safety precautions so that the next time an accident occurs. there will be a reduced chance of someone get­ ting injured.

To reduce the risk of injUry n i Ii car. you might add safety belts or airhags for protection. With cheerelading stunts. you can add spotters, perform gtunts on mats to cushion falls. or even limit the height of the stunts to minimize the height of the fall. As far as the injuries go. another element to consider is that cheerleading on the east coast is very different from that out here in the west. The eastern cheerleaders moves are much more complicated and can lead to more serious in· juries. Whereas in the ....est. the less risk you take in your mo\·es. the bener you chances /lTe of not being hurt.

Suspect found in pack thefts

by Kathy lawrence

by Katharine Hedland Mast staff reporter

PLU's Health Center treated 91 cases of sexually transmitted diseases last year, sllid Judy Wagonfeld, PLU's self .. cllness coordinator. In September ' re.I Cll of this year. she said. eight cases were treated. While gonorrhea and syphilis may be the most well known of these diseases there aTe many others considered to be sexually tnmsmiLted diseases. Those diagnosed at the Health Center include candidiasis. chlamydia. gurd· lice. herpes. gonorrhea, nerella. trichomonas. and venereal warts, said Wagonfcld. "We get the whole range," she said. Chlamydia and gardnerclla occurred most frequently in 1984·85. Each represented 20 cases last. year. Wagonfeld said both are transmit.t.ed solely through sexual contact 8Qd' they share similar characteristics. The symptoms for males and females are alike. she said, and include discharge, burning, and itching of the genitals. Tn addition, females may suffer abdominal pain. Venereal warts. Wagonfeld said, are similar to herpes because no cure has been found. The other diseases, she said, can be treated with medication. She said that students who are diagnosed with a sezually transmitted disease ari:! asked to bring their suual partners in for a c:heck·up. Students usually only come in when they have a problem and this is unfor· tunate. she said. Some people do not ex' perienc:e any symptoms and by the time they discover the disease, it may have already done severe damage to their reprodUctive system�. said Wagonfeld. She said if symptoms do occur, a stu· dent should come in immediately to pre­ vent damage to their reproductive systems since sexually transmitted di5(>8lIes spread very quickly. She added that there is no fee at the Health Center for checking for infe..:tion. I f a person is sexually active, Wagonfeld slIid. he or she should come in for a yearly check-up. She emphasized that using condoms and decreasing the number of sexual partners are ways to avoid contracting a sexually transmitted disease.

Campus Safety apprehended a youth Wednesday afLernoon who is believed to be responsible for stealing several book bags from the University Center since school began. said Campus Safety Direc­ tor Ron Garrett. Garrett said tne suspect was question· ed and released by Campus Safety. "We have no sufficient evidence to press c:harges," Garrett said, explaining that he believes the youth was involved with the thefts. The youth was described by Garrett as a 16·year-old male, 5 feet 6 inches tall with brown eyes and bro.....n curly hllir. Campus Safety personnel warned the youth that he was trespassing and told him not to retum to campus. Garrett said. "This satisfies our ll'gal responsibili· ty." he said.- saying that the university may take action against the youth if he is again discovered on the PLU campus. The youth had been seen prior to Wednesday on numerous occasions, Garrett said. He said he had determined the suspect was not It PLU student, bas· ed on reports from University personnel who had previous contact with the youth. UC staff members had con­ fronted him before and he had been ask· ed to leave the Games Room. The suspect had been seen carrying two backpacks out of the UC, Garrett said, although it has never been established whether the property belonged to him or not. UC staff members began watching for the youth and notified Campus Safety when he entered the building Wednes· day, Garrett saia. The suspect "sat on benches outside and watched people putting their things down." Garrett said. Campus Safety personnel observed him for 15 minutes before he noticed he was being watched and went downstairs in the lIc. He was followed and confronted. "At first he said he had no identifica­ tion," refusing to "give a straight . answer," Garrett said. "Usually when you catch a thief, he'll give you a lot of !xIgusinformation." Garrett said when he told the suspect

Parking regulations may be up for revision by Emily Morgan

Mast reporter Parking regulations and areas at PLU may be changing soon now that the Traffic and Appeals Board is in operation. The board will be responsible for recommending policies concerning tmf· fic regulations and parking facilities to Ron Garrett, the director of Campus Safety. Appeals of parkinA: citations issued by Campus Safety will be decided by the board. but Pen"}' Hendricks, vice president for finance and operations. hi.:s the power to revie"" and alter the board's decision under unusual circumstances. " If you are going to have Campus Safety ticket people. you have to have some 30rt of balance there." said board member. Dean Pinto. "In this case. the appeals board."' The board is composed of five voting mrmbers and one non·voting member. Three student.s-Jennifer Hubbard. Dean Pinto. Susie Smith-along with reigion l professor Michael Poellet and personnel' secretary·technican Yvonne Zylkowski comprise the voting members. The non·voting member will be either Garrett or Brad McLane from Campus Safety: they will act in an ad· viY.lry capacity on questions of policy. Curn.'fIt PLU parking regulations of· fer the right of appeal to each student and employee. Violators are notified by Campus Safety of the fines due and may appeal the fine through that office. If the cited driver is not satisified with the decision. he or she may appeal to the Traffi!: and Appeals Board. "It is important that student.s have some place t.o go if they do feel they've been wronged."' said Hubbard. chairper­ son for the board.

Interest has been generated surroun­ ding PLU's tieketing policy because no appeal meetings were conducted last year. In addition, possibly as many as a few hundred parking tickets were lost during ASPLU's last senate term. The tickets disappeared and no other rerord of the citations was kept.. Garrett said Campus Safety does not have the manpower to ticket every violator every time: it has no daily quota to fill and does not benefit by the tickets it renders. "It is really easy to take your chances especially when you're not checked on very often, but if you are In the wrong, you will have to pay the price," said Hubbard. There were questions raised this year about tickets given for violations not mentioned in the parking regulations booklet distributed to students. Doubt.s were expressed &.s to whether some student.s ever received the information. Two meetings are planned within the next weeks to discuss appeals already received since the beginning of the schooJ year. The hoard will then meet as needed. The Campus Safety Office will refer appeals to the board within 48 hours after receiving them. When a deci­ sion has been reached, the chairperson will notify the appellant and Campus Safety within 48 hours of the meeting. If an appeal of a citation is not filed within 10 days and no payment of the ticket hall been made, Campus Safety will process the citation through the Business Office. The board is a university committee appointed by President Rieke. It is not ASPLU related but the ASPLU vice president is responsible for serving as head of the board. Campus Safety and members of the appeals board recommend that parking facility users obtain a copy of the vehicle parking and regulations pamphlet from the Campus Safety Offiee to review the rules and ask questions if necessary.

Chemistry profs team up to teach in China next hear by Clayton Cowl

Mast stall reporter PLU chemistry professors William Giddings and Charles Anderson often seem to work in the urne plaee at t.he StUne time. frrst at Harvard Graduate School then in the ehemistry depart­ ment al PLU. And now. the two plan to team up and teach organic chemistry at Chenl;du University in the People's Republic of China next fall and spring. This PLU·sponsored academic adven· ture is designed to provide students with the opportunity to combine their studies in advanced science with a visit to the Orient. Chendu is located in the central part of China, about 800 miles northwest. of Hong Kong, on a large plain aurrounded by mountains. It is one of the most pro­ ductive agriculture centera in the region. The idea of combining courses in Chinese language and culture with studies n i science was developed. after coordinatol"8 Kwong-Tin Tang of PLU's physica department and Anderson of the chemistry department visited China last apring. The academic lineup will provide a practical background in Chineee studies. Instruction, voiced in Mandarin Chinese. will cover aurvey courses in Chinese art, literature. geography and history. The program will also feature lectures in English on selected hil'!toric and contemporary Chinese topica. Organic ehemistry will be the featured xience class for the 1986-87 school year. The program offers elllenaive course­ related travel throulthout China. in·

Giddings will teach the organic chemistry section n i the faU and Ander· son will handle the spring load. The two professors each attended Harvard graduate school of chemistry during 1954-56 and altbough the two were ac­ quaintances while at the institution. their relationship was not close. "We knew of each other, although not well since we weren't working in the same lib." said Giddings, who graduated from Harvard n i 1959 after" receiving his undergraduate degree from DePauw. The Indiana native is anxious to begin his first trek to the Orient. "I should aay so," said Giddings. "It will be exciting for me and everyone in· volved with the program." Arter attending both Michigan Technical lnstitut.e and St. Olaf College in Minnesota, Anderson spent rus residence at Harvard from 1952 to 1966. Anderson. a specialist in organic chemistry aynthesis. currently teaches the organic claas at PLU. He says the new program will be one that will add new insight and appreciation for other culturea and help student.s gain greater personal maturity, setr·know!edge and confidence.

Vignec finds challenge i n low income commun ity by Lance Kuyhndall

Mast staff reporter

Reverend Ron Vignec. associate university pastor at PLU the last five years, has left the academic environment of the university for the city streets of the Shalishan community, a low· income housing development managed by the Tacoma Housing Authority. Vignec was commissioned on Nov. 5 as establishing pastor for the Salishan Lutheran Mission at the East.side Community Center in Tacoma. The commissioning service " was the official way the church says 'we are sending you now to begin! ' . . Vignec said. His work actually began last spring. he said. when the church called him to the urban ministry. Vignec said his decision to ac­ cept the position came from a cern· bination of things. After a trip to CentraJ America as part of an American Lutheran Church fact·finding group observ· ing conditions in Nicaragua and EI Salvador, he said " I had a dif· ferent perspective on what I wanted to be doing." "Talking with people of faith amidst the poverty gave me much food for thought," he said. "We love PLU and the work we are doing." Vigtloc said. but the church can always find good pe0ple for PLU. "it's harder to rind people for urban ministry." The Salishan community, located n i southeast Tacoma, has .II population of about 2.700. At the

time of the 1979 census 67 percent of the population was below the poverty line. . Vignec said urban ministry is a change for the Lutheran church. "This is one of t.he rare times the institutional church bas put its money where ita mouth is, said it cares, and sent someone." The Salishan mission is aup" ported by aU three cburch bodies: the Luther-an church in America. the American Lutheran church. and the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Vignee said he will bring his own urban background to the misaion. "I grew up il, Brooklyn," he said. "My whole youth and adolescence , is ther-e.'· Now. he said. he is coming back to the city. "more mature, to suc:­ ceed and to fail."

Failure. he explained, is part of the mission, Salishan will be more like a parish than a church, he said. Normal means of measuring success, such a5 the amount of money a program brings in, will not be effective. The Salishan Mission will not bring in money, he said, and will serve some people who may never go to church. "We hope to have a

worshipping community," he said, '"but the way we'll do it is really unknown yet." Vignec said his work in the Salishan area '"started slowly." He has been meeting with com· munity leaders as well as going to Lutheran churches to de!ICribe the mission and seek support. He has begun to get a wouhipp" ing community a:..&rUld. He said. "We hope to initiate our first ser­ vice December 1st."' The date is symbolic. he said, it is the Advent, orehurch new year. In addition to beginning wor· ship, he will also be starting an association to provide sports and activities in the Salishan area. He said the program will primarily w(ll"k with adolescents.. He said that n i the Salishan area, where the average age in the com­ munity is 17. there is a need for adult mentol1l to provide responsi· ble adult modeJs. Long-term guals Vignec has for the Salisban Mission would be a "hospitality house'" that would be a plaM for "community programs related to education." Programs there could deal with auch things as "problems with seeking employment," he said. Vignec said he would also l.i.Ii:e to develop links between PLU and the Salishan community. He said this could include having interns from Co-operative Education. a sports program nvolving i the PhySical Education Department. involvement with the University Congregation. and inereued in­ volvement with the achool of

New bu i ld i ng pass system receivi ng m ixed reactions by Jeff aell Masl reporter PLU's new pass system is receiving mixed reactions' from faculty and students. Although it is still too soon to give a fuU evaluation of PLU's building pass system, the two groups cite reasons why they are both for. and against. the restriction to access. For students with passes it meant easier access to campus buildings after­ hours 85 weu as removing doubt about the student's presence in the building. The tightened building security by Campus Safety is favored by Dud Cun­ ningham, a student who works in an Eastvold music office after-hours. She compared the pass system to last year's eecurity by saying " I was never ques­ tioned last year" in reference to her after-hours usage at that time. "I like it, personally, for the ease of use," said Paul Gould. Gould. like many other music students. uses both Easlvold's main auditorium and Trinity Luthersn Church's organ area in which to practice.

"One thing we will find out is if it is appropriate t.o keep buildings open" for a longer period of time. she said. She said the Officers' concern was the smount of time students would be in buildings and suggested the new passes may impose some time limits on some students.

Johnson shows concern in work with delinquents by Mike Condardo

Mas t stall reporter

Take a walk around downtown Tacoma and watch the kids pass the day on the street comers. Some are just hanging out or getting together with friends. But others are in· volved in drugs nd prostitution, Most of this second group will end up on the YoTOng side of the law during their childhood years. Some will be >:lent to a juvenile hall. Others may be put on pro­ bation and released, Still others will be put in group or foster homes. Who deals with these kids once they ate caught breaking the law? Most counselors are trained profes­ sionals. But for one Pacific Lutheran University senior, talking with these kids is just another step toward
