Editor's note: On January 10, 2002 the Campus Life Board denied the Gay-Straight Forum as an official student group for the second time. Last semester. President Bultman appointed a task force to make recommendations about this issue. It was T.S. Eliot who said. "Human kind cannot bear very much reality. " The reality is Hope College (and many other institutions, including our federal government) must make some sort of a decision about homosexuality. This weeks InFocus provides you with the raw materials in the debate over homosexuality on Hope's campus. It is important for us to understand the details of this complex issue ifwe are to comment and make a judgment on it.

Professor warns about dangers of drugs

Recently, I have been accused of not backing up the arguments I make in my weekly editorials. Whether or not that is true, I think that the Seen and Heard on page 2 of this issue is g o o d evidence that I am right in saying the bulk of Hope students would not have a problem with the Gay-Straight F o r u m being an official student organization. Although it's not exactly a scientific poll, the fact that none of the students we talked to in the Kletz last night would have voted against the G S F should at least make one think that maybe the student viewpoint is not fairly represented in the boards that make deci-

Use letters to the editor It seems like every A n c h o r editor I have worked for before was constantly writing editorials about how no one was writing letters to the editor. I have tried very hard this past year not to get bogged down in that kind of whining, but c o m e on. There are tons of things going on to be upset about, to be happy about, to be thankful for, to make observations about, and to ask questions about. D o n ' t be afraid to use the letters to the editor section of the A n c h o r for those purposes. If it is anything, the Anchor is the only way for you to communicate with the entire c a m p u s at the same time. I thank all those w h o have contributed in the past, and I look forward to engaging new issues or exploring new viewpoints in the future.

Volunteers in the Peace Corps may be asked to serve in undeveloped, rural areas such as Poquani Village in South Africa. Volunteers go through three months of training before beginning their service work. The training helps them deal with cultureshock and living adjustments such as most Americans would make in order to live in Poquani Village.
