by Julie Blair campus editor H o l l a n d Police Department Detectives and Public Safety officers are pursuing suspects who they believe ransacked K l e i n h e k s e l Cottage over Christmas break and stole approximately S4()()() in possessions. Thieves entered the residence, 136th L:. 14th St., by kicking in the deadbolted back door sometime before ^:50 a.m. on Jan. 3. According to Duane Terpstra, assistant director of public safety, the intruders trashed the house looking for valuables, gaining access to locked b e d r o o m s by k i c k i n g in the wooden doors. Home to seven students, only one resident was l i v i n g on campus over break. She discovered the theft after returning from a weekend o f f campus. " T h e y t o o k a n y t h i n g electronic—TVs, stereos, VCRs, even alarm clocks," said residence assistant Teresa Hamilton ('^5). As stated in the Hope College handbook, the college is not responsible for lost or stolen items, said dean o f students Richard Frost. Home owners insurance should cover the costs of losses, frost said.

Hope steals bragging rights from Calvin by Michael McCammon staff reporter The Dutchmen laid to rest the nine game losing streak against C a l v i n C o l l e g e last Wednesday in a 69-65 victory sought after since 1991. The first half was a heated defensive battle with a low scoring 26-24 lead for Hope. The passing game for Calvin was rapid as they found a way to open up the back door and hit the open man for the shot. The Hope defense was stronger, denying most attempts in the lane and forced some turn overs. The only weakness Calvin could find to exploit was down low as they drove base line for the lay up. However, our big men in the middle converged and blocked many of these attempts. While Hope's defense was hot, the offense was cold as Calvin forced turn overs and rebounded many missed shots. The passing was not as crisp as Calvin's, but the Dutch were able to power their way to the basket with Duane Bosma ('96) and Tom Gortsema ('97). Hope led by 7 points at times in the half while Calvin led by 1 point for a total of 12 seconds. The D u t c h m e n lit up the I game in the second half in all areas. Bosma, Brad Duistermars ( ' 9 5 ) , and Doug Schlaff ('95) took the ball strong to the basket as they scored w h i l e fouled to convert their


Kyle Plank ('95) came back in and gave Hope one of his best performances, as he blocked anything that got near him and scored easily around and over the man trying to guard him. He was one of the many who hustled down on the fast breaks to embarrass Calvin with a 20 point lead. Gortsema played strong down low as he and Bosma seemed to deter the Calvin players from going up strong inside. The lead slowly diminished as Calvin's Ryan Stahr hit his 3-point

efforts into three point plays. The Hope defense forced turnovers for fast breaks which led to Joel Holstege ('98) feeding the ball to Bosma for an outstanding half court alley-oop dunk. With about 12 minutes to go Calvin was having shooting difficulties and the Dutchmen turned up the heal. With three and four attempts at the basket before having the ball taken away the Calvin team was becoming frustrated by our guards, as Duistermars hit the 3-point field goals.

attempts to allow his team to regain its footing from the Hope charge. In the last minute, the Hope team appeared to pull up on the reins so as not to give up any fouls, and it seemed that victory was i n e v i t a b l e as the g r i n s broke out on the faces of the Dutch. T h o u g h C a l v i n ' s last second 3 - p o i n t attempt was successful in bringing the game to a four point victory, it was clear who dominated at last— the Dutch.

Police detonate homemade bomb by Julie Blair campus editor

The spirit behind the dream of Dr. Martin Luther K i n g Jr. moved Hope students and Holland community members as they gathered for the fourth annual service held in King's memory. Monday marked the anniversary o f the birth of King and in observance of this national holiday over 100 people celebrated in Dimnent Chapel in a service entitled " I f I Can Help Somebody," also the name of a song that was sung during King's funeral. "The service is set up to involve local community members as well as Hope students," said Yoli Vega, director of multicultural life. "It is a diverse people coming together for one cause." Students also felt the importance of the day along with the celebration of the meaning of the holiday. "It's something we as students need to appreciate and acknowledge," Kristi Cook ('98) said. "The message being preached is important to all o f us." The service began with praise anthems led by Descendant, the contemporary Christian

Hope proposes to renovate museum for nursing department by Julie Blair campus editor Nursing students may be hanging up their lab coats in a new mock-up hospital ward inside the former Netherlands M u seum under a Hope College proposal to renovate the property.

According to vice-president of business and finance B i l l Anderson, the nursing department, run in conjunction with Calvin College and located at 105 E. 14th St., needed more space. Plans include developing offices for the director of nursing, dean of natural sciences, one-part time and seven full-time professors. A mock-up hospital w i l l be built to

The bomb, composed of aluminum foil wrapped into a plastic Coke-type bottle and soaked with chemicals, had begun to expand in the cold and was close to explosion, said Duane Terpstra, assistant director of public safety. " A lot of times people feel pop bottle bombs are funny, but not when there is 130 pounds per square inch of pressure behind it," Terpstra said. " W h e n it explodes it can really hurt somebody, especially if acid sprays." In other public safety reports, a fire left the room of two second floor Kollen Hall residents damaged on Dec. 11. Officers believe sparks began when a burning cigarette fell into a wastepaper basket and ignited. Neither resident was home at the time. The s m o l d e r i n g fire was discovered around 4:30 p.m. upon the return of one roommate who then alerted public safety. According to Terpstra, the smoke was not heavily concentrated enough to set o f f Kollen Hall fire alarms. The Hope College physical plant estimate costs of the smoke damaged carpet, walls and chair to be close to $600. A l l repairs were made over Christmas break.

letters to the editor...


Keep in touch New Year and welcome back! We would like to take this opportunity to thank our readers for all of their input and support during the first semester. We folks here at The Anchor are excited about bringing you another semester of campus coverage. While we are enthusiastic about covering traditional second semester events like basketball, rusn, Fantasia, May Day etc., this year we are looking forward to extending our second semester coverage. We hope to be covering events and delving into issues that we have never covered in the past.We would like to go boldly where no Anchor has ever gone before. However, we cannot do that without the help of you, our loyal readers. • It is our job as a student newspaper to cover issues that are of interest to our audience and the only way that we can ascertain those issues is by communication with you. There are a variety of ways this communication can be fostered. First, there is the trust letter to the editor method. This is a virtually painless exchange between you the writer, and an inanimate mail box. The only things you have to do are: make sure the letter arrives the Sunday before we publish the next issue, keep it relatively concise, and refrain from profanity. If letter writing isn't your thing, you can drop us a line on e-mail at "anchor." Or, you can send us information on group, organization or personal upcoming events that you would like to see mentioned in The Anchor. The Anchor also has advertising space available at no cost to campus organizations, and at a relatively low cost to others. You can inquire about advertising by calling The Anchor advertising line at x7982. If you want to call and talk about the news side of things, jpve us a call, day or night (we never go home) You are also welcome to stop by our office located behind WTHS in the DeWitt center and verbalize you feeling, again, this is as long as you keep it relatively concise and free of profanity. While our staff spends hours on end scurrying around campus sniffing out scoops, we still miss things—things that could easily be brought to our attention by you. We hope to hear from you soon and we wish you the best of luck in '95!

well aware of the college regulations. This incident brought to my attention how some regulations are vague and often unfair. A few weeks before the end of this past semester I was in a friend's room on my floor with a number of other men from our floor. 1 was reading the paper, and we were all talking. The RA from our floor then knocked on the door. He came in and asked us if we knew anything about the light bulb in the exit sign being burnt out. He personal asked me and a couple other guys in the room, and we all denied knowing anything. After he left I asked the guys in the room if they knew what he was talking about. A few of them had been

this all happened. Later that evening, our RA discovered from another RA that my roommate and the individual who broke the sign where in the hallway that afternoon hitting the puck. Our RA then continued to question members of our floor, first, going to my roommate and asking if he knew who broke the light. My roommate was left with the choice of turning in his friend or denying any knowledge. He denied. Then the one who actually broke the light was questioned and denied knowledge. Finally, our RA found someone who after much "persuasion" gave the name of the individual who broke the light. I am a firm believer in law and order and 1 feel the individual respon-

simply for being in the presence of a violation and refusing to turn in a friend for the accidental breaking of a $8.50 light bulb. I felt this punishment was very unfair. As students we should not be responsible for being the watch dogs over our peers, ready to run to an RA whenever we find ourselves in the presence of a violation. Many of our regulations are so vague anyone could conceivable be written up. A good example is regulation 2.2 "No person shall perform any action demonstrating lack of respect for the dignity of another person." This could be interpreted so many ways that I am sure everyone has violated it or been in the presence of someone vio-

sible for breaking the light should pay for the light and face the consciences of violating the "no sports in the halls" regulation. However my roommate, was charged with destruction

Sororities encourages Hope students to give rush a chance Dear Editor, As you make your way through campus during these next few weeks, you may begin to notice the numerous calendars and posters that the various Greek organizations have put up announcing Rush '95. As a result of this, you may begin to wonder if rush is right for you. In order to help you make this decision, here are a few of the positive things about rush. FirsJ of all.

rush gives you a chance to meet new people that you may not otherwise encounter, and to create new friendships. Second, if you have stereotypic images of sororities and fraternities, rush is a chance for you to find out for yourself what Greek life is really all about. Next, rush events give you an opportunity to participate in exciting activities that break the monotony of your average day. Finally, unless you rush, you may never

know what Greek organizations truly have to offer. The 12 sororities and fraternities on campus are excited for Rush '95. If you decide to rush, you may find a group that is right for you. If this happens, the memorable experiences have just begun!

Lisa Bos A revolutionary. Intelligent. Idea-driven. A champion o f virtue. Ambitious. A visionary. A genius. A l l o f these words and phrases have been used to describe, and do describe, Newton Leroy Gingrich, the Republican Speaker of the House in the 104th Congress. For those o f you who haven't seen or read a magazine, newspaper, or television in the past six months, you probably don't know very much, if anything, about Newt Gingrich. Yet, he is undoubtably the best thing to happen to politics in many years. Even his D e m o c r a t i c o p p o n e n t s c a n ' t help but complement him, stating that Gingrich is "everything our leaders are not but should be." " Newt Gingrich is the ideal leader. His message is clear and concise, and hasn't changed since he first entered politics in 1974. Unlike many of his colleagues, he still maintains the goals he held for his 16 years in Congress, goals of fighting corruption, big government, and social decay. He is full of ideas and has a vision that he spreads to others through his energy and passion. This ability to inspire members o f Congress to come together has led to a remarkable and historic b e g i n n i n g o f the new year. A l r e a d y , several p r o v i s i o n s f r o m Gingrich's Contract with America, such as downsizing committees, an end to voting by proxy, and a requirement of a 2/3 majority to pass income tax increases, were passed in the first session by overwhelming majorities. Contrary to what many believe, Gingrich is not out to destroy the Democratic party. His vision goes much further, and includes compromise with the president and the minority party, although he refuses to go against his basic principles. He has already shown his co-operative spirit through his support of the North American Free Trade Agreement

last year, and his flexibility with the Contract with America, agreeing to remove a clause d e n y i n g welfare benefits to legal aliens. Newt Gingrich's vision for America is to transform a society filled with problems into a country that is safe, free, and prosperous. This vision is clearly seen in his college course entitled " R e n e w i n g the American Civilization." One o f the phrases he repeats often in the course is that America can not continue to develop and succeed with 12-year-olds having children, 15-year-olds shooting each other, 17-year-olds dying o f A I D S , and 18year-olds graduating with diplomas which they can't read. He emphasizes personal strength, tr^e strength, quality, invention and discovery, and learning from the lessons o f American history. Gingrich sees the need to rebuild inner cities, change welfare and health care into systems that stress work and opportunity, and restore economic growth. Yes, Newt Gingrich is outspoken. Yes, he is sometimes overzealous. Yes, he is even wrong sometimes. Aren't we all? Many of us get carried away sometimes when we are passionate in our belief in a certain idea or project. Many of us believe Hillary Clinton is a bitch and say it all the time. So why do we so quickly condemn a public figure for possibly saying something which millions of other people say everyday? For some reason, we think that politicians must be more human, an expectation that is b o u n d to leave us d i s a p p o i n t e d . N e w t Gingrich is a normal person in a powerful position who does his best, which sometimes, as with all of us, may not be good enough to please everyone. No matter what your personal feelings are about Newt Gingrich's ideas and positions on certain issues, no one can deny that this charismatic, dedicated man w i l l shake up Washington and finally get something done in Congress. As one member of the Congress put it, "It's a whole Newi w o r l d . "

Police bust Holland businesses selling alcohol to minors by Jim Riekse news editor It seems that the youth of Holland were purchasing more than Big Gulps and Slurpees at the 7-11 on River and 16th. The establishment was one o f six Holland businesses caught selling alcohol to minors in a sting carried out by the Holland Police in early December. The six stores were among 22 locations visited that sell packaged liquor in H o l l a n d and included

7-11, Dry Dock and Perry Drugs. According to police, minors were asked by police to enter stores and attempt to buy alcohol. Some of the offending stores checked identification yet still sold to the minors, some never asked at all and allowed the youths to make the purchase. The clerks that made the illegal sales were cited on a misdemeanor charge and the businesses were reported to the Michigan Liquor Control Commission, which has the power lo fine businesses or suspend

liquor licenses. Current Michigan policy states that a liquor license can be revoked if a business is caught selling alcohol twice to minors in a year. Holland city councilman Robert Vande Vusse would like tougher laws, with licenses revoked after one infraction. "I think if we going to be tough on underage d ers who drink, we ought to be toug on the people who sell alcohc them," Vande Vusse said. Vande Vusse was referrin


the recent state legislation that penalizes drivers under 21 who have a b l o o d - a l c o h o l level o f .02 or higher by suspending their driver's licenses up to 90 days for the first offense and up lo a year for additional violations. The youths can also be fined and be required to perform community service. Vande Vusse would like to sec this"zero t o l e r a n c e " p o l i c y expanded to those who sell to minors. Sgt. Bob DeVries said the sting operation is just something that the

police department does periodically, and has been going on "for years and years." Yet the sting was more successful than had been imagined and DeVries said that he was "disappointed that so many businesses were cited." DeVries said that the sting had nothing to do with underage Hope students purchasing alcohol. " W e do encounter underage Hope students buying on occasion, but it is not the norm," DeVries said.

B n n i n k does not f e e l that people are treating him any different than they did before he w o n the scholarship except for the occasional lighthearted jokes from his friends. However, some people recognize him that haven't before. He said that last week upon entering the computer lab a complete stranger came to him and asked, " A r e n ' t you the one who won that Marshall Scholarship?" Bennink w i l l be attending Kings College al the University of London to continue his education in physics. " I t has a really interesting physics program and has different courses than Hope," Bennick said. Bennick said he wanted to choose a college that w o u l d allow him to experience different types o f courses. Also, he said he "heard f r o m others that K i n g ' s College was a very good school./E One o f the things that Bennink has enjoyed most about Hope College is "the chance to do so many different kinds o f things and meet so many different people." He adds that "it is just a fun time w i t h so many opportunities presented to you." Bennink would like to thank his biggest inspiration, Dr. Rouze, his professor and advisor. " I n aditlion to teaching me about physics, he taught me how to approach it and think about it, making it more interesting for me." Bennink's biggest piece of advise for students who may wish to achieve this very prestigious scholarship? " B e yourself and get involved. The more you get out and do and experience, the better o f f you w i l l be."

'Taste of Hope' tempts the tummy by Mellissa Endsley editor-in-chief The ever-enticing promise of free food drew hundreds of students into the Maas A u d i t o r i u m last Thursday for the " A Taste of Hope" food show. Sponsored by Creative Dining Services, " A Taste of Hope" featured samples of foods from over 20 different food distributors. "This is the best meal I've ever had at Phelps," bellowed one student as he ran from booth to booth tasting the delectable goodies. According to Rick Balfour, director of food services, this type of show is b e c o m i n g increasingly popular on college campuses. "CDS has sponsored this type of thing on other campuses as a way to try out new products on the students and see how they go over," he said. Upon attending the event, students were given a response card asking their opinions of the foods provided for sampling. "Hopefully, we can use these results and integrate them into meal plan," Balfour said. Among the more popular products featured were Pillsbury muff i n s , b r o w n i e s , and c o o k i e s , Hudsonville ice cream and Pepsi's athletic drink A l l Sport, which was displayed beneath a giant rotating basketball hoop complete w i t h flashing lights.

^ K n i c k e r b o c k e r M o v i e : Winner o f the Special Jury Prize and Awards for Best Actress and best Screenplay, "I D o n ' t

Massive color and black and white photographs ornament the DePree gallery, where the newest exhibition, "META/PHYSICS: Crossing Boundaries in Contemporary Photography," awaits unveiling this Saturday. The exhibition explores the diversity present in contemporary photography with works by 10 current artists from an international scope. These artists raise and consider basic questions of existence from the scientific to the spiritual ends of the spectrum of human experience. The exhibit includes a diversity of approaches in photography but is unique in its breadth of awe-inspiring wholeness. " M u c h of the art work we were considering suggested the breaking down o f or reaching beyond traditional boundaries and separating art and life, art and other disciplines,"

said John Wilson, exhibition director. Collaborative artists R i m m a Gerlovina and Valeriy Gerlovin, part of the Samizdat art movement in the f o r m e r S o v i e t Union, create works w h i c h combine the artists' faces and bodies with text and symbols. Photo g r a p h e r D i r k Bak-ker and performance artist Sandra Binion combine elegiac poems by Rainer Maria Rilke w i t h their " N O M O O N " series of 10 photographs. In this series, the images "are created from sets, often on lo-


cation w i t h carefully scripted actors and props," curator Steve Nelson said. The hand-painted photographic portraits of Guatemalan artist Luis Gonzalez Palma synthesize Catholic iconography with Mayan tradit ions, L while Pamela ^ De M a r r i s ' ^ works feature unsett i n g imagery from the "suburbs o f the subc o n scious." J o h n Carney's timeapse photographs chart traces of ight created by both human activity and star movement, and the landscape photographs of John Huddleston illuminate theo-


ries f r o m the discipline o f high-energy physics. Lucinda D e v l i n raises ethical and moral issues regarding capital punishment w i t h her stark photographs o f death chambers, while the i n t e r i o r photographs of artist Margalit Mannor are suffused with light and geometric clarity. Guest curator for the exhibition is Steve Nelson, adjunct professor of photography at Hope. The exhibition is accompanied by a color catalog, which also features cross-disciplinary essays by Hope College faculty members. This exhibition is funded in part by the Hope College Patrons for the Arts and Mr. Hugh DePree. The exhibition w i l l continue t h r o u g h Tuesday, Feb. 28. The opening reception w i l l be this Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. Evryone is invited to see these spectacular photographs forthe first time and admission is free. (photograph: The Gerlovins.

There was nothing stiff or serious about last Saturday's first concert this semester o f the Great Performance Series featuring the highly acclaimed Amherst Saxaphone Quartet. In fact, there was never a dry moment throughout the almost two-hour performance. Once dubbed "First rate in every respect.." by the " N e w York Times" and "Dazzling..." by the "Washington Post," the group exc e l l e d b e y o n d f i r s t rate and dazzled the audience with a diverse performance highlighted with creativity, virtuosity and pervasive humor. w i t h an Opening i nfo rm a1 u speech. tenor saxo p h o n i s t S t e p h e n Rosentha offered the audie several import a n t tips

about concert-going: never clap between movements, only after complete pieces; always unwrap cellophane candy during the quietest parts of the work, and always unwrap it as slowly as possible. Rosenthal's extended oratory set the mood for the entire evening. Even after the opening allegro to the most formal w o r k of the evening, a Bach concerto of some k i n d , the audience was caught chuckling to themselves, unable to decide if they were supposed to clap or not.

This added to the mood of the work and allowed the audience to fully experience the work and create their own images from the music.

from college applications and job interviews, to cow t i p p i n g and hunting Disney characters, there was hardly a dull moment. Things that got the most laughs included Printz's rendition of " I Don't Like the Bar Scene," which he sang to the tune of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire," and his interpretation of male-female relationships. "Whenever a girl says 'What it?' or 'Remember when?,' head for the hills," Prince said. " G o to the flower shops, 'cause you ain't winning this one!" On the topic of the unusual sport of cow tipping. Prince debated the

fact that cows sleep standing up, and said that he'd much rather roll his parents out o f bed at night. " ' C o w t i p p i n g ? ' 1 was t h i n k i n g 'Here's a buck. Thanks for the milk. Buy yourself a bell or something,'" he said. On the rare occasion that one of his jokes flopped or the crowd hesitated to answer his q u e s t i o n s . Prince was undaunted. Regardless of these dry lapses, the crowd remained amused." 1 though he was tunny," Bobbie Streelman ('97) said. "1 liked the part about cow tipping. He got so into it. and he acted everything out.

Swim teams continue to stroke upstream toward national meet By Greg Paplawsky sports editor The Hope College swim teams continued their d o m i n a t i o n this season w i t h impressive performances over the weekend. The men's team stayed undefeated for the year in dual meet action. On Tuesday, January 10, the Dutchmen hosted rival Calvin College in a c r i t i c a l M I A A m a t c h - u p . Hope soundly drowned the visiting Knights 115-91. They then traveled to Adrian on Saturday the 14th f o r another M I A A meet. Hope beat up on the Adrian Bulldogs in their own backyard, 12336. The pair of wins moved the Flying Dutchmen to 3-0 against conference opponents. The victories also gave Hope a 4-0 overall record, and extends their consecu-

tive dual meet winning streak to an astonishing 18 in a row extending back to the end of the 1991 -92 season. Hope w i l l face a crucial test Saturday, January 21, when the Flying Dutchmen meet Kalamazoo. Both teams are 3-0 in M I A A dual meet competition. This meet could very w e l l determine the M I A A champs this year. " I ' m optimistic about our chances" said L u k e Pinkerton ('97), "We have a good team that is very close, and our times are coming down due to the hard work we put in over break." The meet w i l l be held at Wheaton College where the teams w i l l be competing in a quandragular that also includes host Wheaton and Lake Forest, Illinois. The women's team also had a busy week of competition. The Flying Dutch posted a pair of M I A A

victories and lost to an N C A A Division I foe in dual meet competition. The defending . M I A A champion Dutch snatched sole possession o f first place in the conference standings by thrashing the Knights of Calvin 122-98 and A d r i a n 118-54. The v i c t o r i e s moved Hope to 3-0 in M I A A dual meet swims. The F l y i n g Dutch suffered their first dual meet loss in three season when they bowed to D i v i sion I Eastern Michigan, 122-110. The defeat snapped a string of 18 consecutive dual meet victories dating back to the 1991-92 season. The defeat puts Hope at 3-1 overall and-2-0 in the M I A A . Hope w i l l also meet in a quadrangular meet at Wheaton College on Saturday. M I A A rival w i l l be a member in the field of competition.

Men's hoops undefeated by Glyn Williams staff reporter In an amazing onslaught of exciting ^all play, the Hope College Flying Dutchmen overcame poor referees and horrendous free throw s h o o t i n g to massacre v i s i t i n g Albion 91-73 last Saturday. A l o n g with stealing the Britons' pride, the Dutchmen took the top spot in the M I A A . Their record now stands at 15-0, 3 - 0 in the M I A A , w h i l e A l b i o n is now 9 - 7 , 3 - 1 . T h e D u t c h m e n ' s next o p p o n e n t is against Olivet, who now has a 211 record, 1-2 in the region. Albion was streaky throughout the game, at first j u m p i n g off to 94 lead, but then allowing Hope to go on a walloping 15-4 run. This run was accomplished with Hope's star players on the bench taking a breather, while Albion still had the starting five in. Despitt the Flying Dutchmen's stunning array of power, A l b i o n would not die, staging a comeback late in the first half, forcing the score to be 38-38 at halftime. With a tie score, the Britons were not completely out of the ball game, and the Dutchmen were antsy. The second half was incredible. Hope jumped out and snatched a 1MMM1

The Flying Dutch went and conquered their conference foe A l b i o n to remain undefeated in M I A A play and extend their w i n n i n g streak to four games. Hope also shares first place in the M I A A race with A l m a College, who they face on Saturday, January 21, in the Dow. The F l y i n g D u t c h drained a season-high 11 three-pointers in b e a t i n g the p e s k y B r i t o n s o f Albion. Hope had its best first half output offensively o f the season,

leading 49-32 at half time. Albion stormed back in the second half to close the gap to seven points before the Dutch could secure the win. Center Kristin Carlson ('95) had the 35th double-double o f her career, pouring in 11 points and grabb i n g 12 rebounds. Guard N i c k i Mannes ( ' 9 5 ) finished the game with 13 points and recorded five steals. Five different Hope players sank a three-pointer, led by Tami Holleman ( ' 9 5 ) and Dana Smith ( ' 9 6 ) w i t h three a piece. Carlson extended her record for most career rebounds at Hope to 820,13 ahead

o f the f o r m e r r e c o r d h o l d e r DeeAnn Knoll ('88). Carlson also moved into second place on the Hope A l l - t i m e point leaders. She has 1,030 for her career, 339 points behind record holder Karen Gingras-Hoekstra ( ' 8 6 ) . Mannes crept into the top five in career scoring leaders at Hope with 930 career points. In upcoming action Hope w i l l be hosted by Olivet on Wednesday, January 18, at 7:30 p.m. Hope w i l l host A l m a for the M I A A conference lead on Saturday, January 21, at 3 p.m. in the Dow center.

10-3 run. Albion, however, was not i n t i m i d a t e d , and w o u l d not go away. Suddenly, with the score 5251, the Dutchmen felt a resurgence and pieced together a masterful 104 run, lead by Marc Whitford ('97) and his killer three's, making the score now 62-55. Albion came as close as being down by six with eight minutes remaining, but they were drained and the Dutchmen had not yet begun to fight. A fourteen point run was engineered by Hope, and that was it. Up by twenty 82-62, two minutes left, time to put in the bench, and let the starters relax, for their j o b is done. Duane Bosma ('96) hooped 25 points to lead Hope in shooting for the afternoon. With those 25 points, Bosma moves into 14th place on the all-time scoring list for Hope College, bumping 1964 graduate Glenn Van W i e r e n . Bosma has 1,152 career points at Hope College, a mere 852 points o f f the number one spot. Barring injuries, the 6'9 , , Junior Center should surpass that mark with f l y i n g colors. Whitford scored 14, and co-captain Brad Duistemars ( ' 9 5 ) scored 12, thrusting him into the top 20 Hope scorers. He now has 1.026

"We're looking to win the M I A A and to place in the top 10 at nationals," Patnott said, "That has always been my goal." Team captain Kristin Moving ( ' % ) agreed with Patnott's assessment of team morale. "Losing the Loomans was a real shock at first, but we are all pulling together," she said. "We're not scared at all, if anything we arc just more excited." Patnott noted that quality performances from both Moving and f i v e - t i m e all A m e r i c a n Denise Masselink ( ' 9 6 ) are expected to

keep the team well above water in M I A A competition. As for the Loomans, they are e x c i t e d to f o l l o w the t e a m ' s progress and root them on. Susan has attended a couple o f meets since she quit, while Sara is hesitant. " I get tired of being bombed by questions. Every day people arc asking, 'Did you really quit?'People I didn't even know before." "It seems like our quitting has been abigger deal for other people than it was for us," said Susan "Were not any different as people really, we're just not s w i m m i n g anymore," she said.
