Hopeites in DC Subway Crash

Winter Homecoming Almost Here The fifth annual Hope Winter Homecoming will be held Saturday, Feb. 6, featuring on-campus seminars, athletic contests, and a jazz band concert. The event was initiated in 1978 in an attempt to break from the winter doldrums. The College also sponsors a Homecoming 4n conjunction with a home football game in the fall as well as Alumni Day in the spring. Particaipation is not restricted to Hope alumni. "This year's activities are designed to interest all friends of Hope College," said Vern Schipper, director of alumni and community relations at Hope. "We encourage everyone to participate!" Registration will begin at 9:15 am in the DeWit Center. Four different seminars will be held at 10 am and repeated at 11:15 am.

agencies began sending employees nome early. The city was in a state of chaos as the day's 6.5-inch accumulation of snow and freezing temperatures led also to the tragic crash of an Air Florida Jetliner into the 14th street Bridge. Twenty minutes later, at approximately 4:20, the subway derailed. Three people were killed in the accident, but like most of the passengers, the Hope students escaped injury. The four had been in the city for less than two weeks since their semester in Washington began.

Western Responds to Meal Plan

Provost Marker in GLCA Post

He has devised some alternative plans and is willing to discuss them with offcampus students. However, he stresses that more interest will have to be shown by the students if these are to be put into practice. Renz had these ideas written down at the end of last semester but the off-campus students never contacted him. Some of these possibilities include; a certain number of meals for a discounted price, off-campus student night, where prices are discounted, and the use of a Kletz card. The student night could be a twice weekly occurence geared especially toward off-campus students. Also, Renz pointed out that the Kletz card is a $10 value offered to students for nine dollars. This card can be used at both the Kletz and Phelps cafeteria. Renz encourages feedback on these proposals and is willing to talk to any students concerning these ideas.

Thinking About a Summer job? by Timothy Shatter One source of summer Jobs across the nation-always big and often negleted by colleglan Jobseekers -is not quite as big this year. But It's still big, particularly In the kinds of jobs for men and women who need to make some bread between June and September. This is the summer Job market for posltkms with Federal departments and agen* cles, which includes anything from being a lifeguard with the National Park Service to a geologist with the Bureau of Mines. Most of these Jobs are filled through the Office of Personnel Management (formerly the Civil Service Commission), which has regional offices across the nation. A nationwide survey conducted by Federal Jobs, for the particular benefit of collegian Jobseekers, shows that Uncle Sam. responding to President Reagan's drive to cut back on "big government", has pared the number of Job availabilities for this summer considerably, sometimes by as much as 50 percent In some regions. That's the bad news. The goods news. Federal Jobs finds out. Is that the kinds of Jobs left, around 10,000 nationwide (excluding special programs for minors), are Ideal for college men and women. Federal Jobs, a biweekly newspaper devoted to listings of Jobs available In the Federal government sector, Is out now with Its annual summer Jobs issue, listing thousands of opportunities state by state.

Scholarship Fund Renomod

Federal Jobs also givw tips and detailed explanations on how to apply for them and otherwise find your way through the bureaucratic labyrinth. Job recruiters at OPM regional offices told Federal Jobs that most cutbacks are of middle-level Jobs; typically, ^ administrative positions which wouldn't be filled by college students anyway. But there is still a heavy demand for people who can type, file or otherwise clerk: modest but respectably paying Jobs for many people between semesters. Tfcere also remain plenty of upper echelon availabilities for students with good track records In^engineering- which is in partlcular demand--or other s c i e n c e / t e c h n i c a l a r e a s , Including medical and health assignments for premeos. ^ But act fast, Federal Jobs warns. Most Job deadlines are March 15 or April 15. Students interested in summer Jobs in the Holland area should stop In at the Michigan Employment Securities Commission at 727 Waverly. There are a number of factories that hire students for the summer, but the competition Is Intense and most of the factories do their hiring exclusively through the MESC office. For further Information on Federal Jobs, write the publication at Dept. C. 240 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10016. A copy of the annual summer Jobs Issue Is also available at that address for $5.50 postpaid.

Review of the News The Polish situation continued relatively unchanged, with the exception that more and more Poles were seeking asylum In the West. Polands foremost actor resigned from the Communist Party, saying In a letter that he "could not do anything else." Tadeusz Lonmlckl had been a party member for 30 years and had risen to membership in the Central Committee. Saying that Solidarity had "restored his faith in socialism In Poland," he Joined thousands of other loyal party members who turned in their party cards. Reports say that some factories have baskets filled with turned In cards. The Defense Department put some 25 top officials through lie detector tests In a failed attempt to determine the source of Information leaks to the press. Administration defense spending plans were released, which greatly angered the President. News leaks, he said, were "one of the major problems facing the Administration." Searching for methods other than income tax for revenue raising, the White House announced a proposal to raise excise taxes on alcohol and tobacco. Such taxes have not risen In decades, so they seem to be fair game. An explosion in a Spencer. Oklahoma grade school killed six children last week. The exact cause of the blast was not determined, but speculation was that It was a problem with a gas water heater. Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Hyde Park home was damaged by fire on Saturday, the 23rd. Curators braved the flames to save art and furniture, but the fire was eventually contained. The cause may have been faulty electical wiring. The SanFranclsco 49ers won Super Bowl XVI Sunday, defeating the Cincinnati Bengals, 26-21. Neither of the two teams came close to being pre season favorites, but tremendous years by quarterbacks Joe Montana (S.F.) and Ken Anderson (Cine.) changed their fortunes. The game was played In Pontlac's Sllverdome, marking the first time a northern site was chosen for the championship game.

Student Congress Report Student Congress met on Wednesday evening, January 20. A quorum was not present; therefore the meeting was not official and no votes could be taken. The book swap was discussed. It was reported that only 15 to 20 people showed up; but most students, of course, were held up due to extreme weather conditions. It was also reported that the proposed 5meal plan for off-campus students would be very expensive. A committee was

assigned to look into alternative plans. Congress discussed the Issue of the media salaries and the way that the previous meeting's debate and vote were conducted. The officers admitted that material may not have been presented in the most equitable fashion. A committee was formed to further study the matter. President Chris Simon informed the Congress that the position of secretary Is vacant. Interested students should contact Chris or their student representative.

Another Student Center Once again, students of Hope are paying for a student center. Beginning in 1964, the student body raised money for the DeWitt Cultural Center. The $50,000 raised by their car washes and bake sales was meager relative to the total cost of the facility ($2.65 million), but it indicated their conviction that such a building was needed. It was that display of dedication that led Dick and Jack DeWltt and many others to make the dream a reality. Then, in 1980, due to the fire that destroyed Van Raalte Hall, the administration moved into the student center. Predictable, the administration became very comfortable in this marvelous building, and made plans to stay. A number of students rebelled, and new plans were made. Now, however, the students are paying for another student center, with the renovation of Carnegie gym. This time, the circumstances are different, for this time, the campus already has a student center. • The arrangement is temporary; supposedly within the next two years as construction of the earth-sheltered building begins and Carnegie is destroyed, DeWitt will be returned to the students. In the meantime, the students (i.e., Student Congress) are giving their consent to the adminsitration staying in DeWitt, and making it easier for them to extend constmction deadlines. Project completion goals will be extended, and throughout the decade the administration will remain in the beautiful "student center" and the students will be in the old, decrepit gymnasium.

Movies on Campus One of the necessary characteristics of a college campus is the opportunity for students to view films that carry some sort of message. Hope students have been deprived for too long of an adequate selection of movies for Intellectual stimulation, as well as for sheer entertainment. This school year, however, has seen a great change in that situation. This past fall the "Anti-War Film Series" which Professor Curry put together was a welcomed addition to the Hope experience. This semester, two new film series join with SAC's traditional line-up. Inspired by Professor Perovich and students Paul Fries and Tom Andrews is the SAC-sponsored "Saturday Night Special," a series that contains a blend of older favorites, newer films that do not enjoy top billing, and a few foreign-made films. The International Relations Club (IRC) is also presenting a film series this semester, bringing to campus six foreign films. The problems with good movies are that the public does not always recognize them; they tend to be ignored as they grow old, and many are made abroad and are not readily accessible. The "Saturday Night Special" and the IRC Foreign Film Festival help to overcome those problems.

John L Hess News item: CBS has ordered bulletproof vests for crews that cover President Reagan. It is not the rival networks that the CBS folks are worried about. Nor is it those Libyan hit squads, which nobody believes in any more except Reagan. What the newshounds a r e scared about is a m a t e u r s , l i k e t h a t c l e a n - c u t Republican boy from Denver who shot the president Just to make an impression on an actress. Funny thing, the gun lobby did not take out ads at the time to brag how easy it was for this youth to buy a weapon in order to demonstrate his love. The gun lobby sure did take out an ad to tell the Polish people that if only they could buy hand guns as easily as we can, those Soviet tanks would never faze them. A great thing about untrammeled private evterprise is the way it sells everybody a weapon and then sells them a defense against it. Like bulletproof vests. They don't care who wears them. In my community the first one that the police saw was on a burgler they caught. In his profession I believe he could claim a tax credit for it. Now every police force has invested in bulletproof vest. In theory this could be bad for sales of bullets, right? Not to worry. Out friendly a r m s merchants have begun marketing vestproof bullets. They call them cop killers. On the police force, that is. They have other names over the counter. They're a little more expensive but if you want quality, you'll be willing to pay for it. In many of the same outlets you can buy a dum-dum bullet, a canister of Mace or a machine gun. If it's not legal where you live it's bound to be available in a nearby state. What we've got going now is an a r m s race among private citizens that is very

similar to the one among nations, and makes about as much sense. ' In both cases there are busybodies trying to interfere with the free market but they don't get very far. For example, dum-dum bullets and at least the stronger varieties of chemical weapons were banned by treaties long ago and are selling very well, thank you. Last spring 35 countries signed a treaty at the United Nations outlawing the use against civilians of napalm, flame throwers, booby traps and incendiaries. The Cairter administration promoted that treaty. T h e R e a g a n administration declined to sign it. Later it accused the Soviets of using illegal poisons in Indochina and Afganistan -- the "yellow rain." If the charge is true it's a pity it was not brought by a more credible party. Coming from us it sounds like an argument for more spending on more weapons. Since 1978 we have quadrupled our budget for chemical weapons, to $455 million in the current fiscal year. The administration has asked for $810 million in 1983 and 1.4 billion in 1984. A crown Jewel of this little program will be the production of a new type of nerve gas, a weapon long since outlawed. But why limit this product to the government's arsenals? A modest marketing effort among civilians for nerve gas should have a spectacular multiplier effect; specialdetectors, gas mask, protective clothing, sealants, shelters. And then we could market new gases that penetrate same. There will be lily-livered objectors but I've got the answer for them: Nerve gas doesn't kill people. People kill people.

Judge for Yourself compiled by the anchor staff Although Student Congress recently voted down a proposed increase in Hope Media Salaries, the question is still alive and a committee is being formed to look into it. The total amount of Hope's Student Activity Fee now allocated to student salaries is about $9000/year, or $4500/semester. The breakdown is as follows: Milestone $675.00/sem. anchor $2100.00/sem. Opus $100 00/sem. Student Congress $650 00/sem. WTAS $985.00/sem. There are 10 anchor staff members, 5 Milestone staff postions, 11 WTAS positions, the Opus editor and 3 Student Congress officers and a secretary who a r e paW from this fund. WTAS DJ's, anchor reporters, and Opus and Milestone nonstaff contributor are not paid. For the media, these salaries amount to far less than minimum wage In that they involve many hours of work each week.

seMUNe as saying, up.M Legislation pie4* problems, people do'

Peace of Mind by Dan Rutt Just recently pro-choice and pro-life abortion groups marched in Washington to lobby for legislation, or the lack of H. As usual the feelings were strong bordering on intoleration - and their energies were efficiently aimed although largely at the throat of the other. This increasingly common scenario is forcing legislators Into tight corners that they cannot escape. Elections frequently can be lost, and rarely won, by taking a strong stance one way or the other on abortion. Now, 1 would usually be unsympathetic when a Congressperson averts an issue, because this usually translates into mediocrity; however, with abortin 1 believe that both sides are right but they are approaching the problem wrong. As kmg as abortion is treated as it is now we will always be plagued with unresolvable legislative battles, and the rea/issue will continue to be sidestepped. 1 doubt if many believe that the root of the abortion problem is in Congress, no matter how much we would like It to be. Abortion Is a social problem and we will only solve it in the context of community. Its roots are deep and they penetrate nearly all aspects of society, but there is a

common ground where abortion activists can meet, 1 suspect that most people's ultimate concern Is for the child, or human life, as so affecUonately termed by some Of course there are some liberals who would lust as soon use abortlon as a means of birth control, and some conservatives who would legislate loving your mother If they could. As far as these liberals go -• pertaps too far - they do not offer any solution on either end o spectrum - legislation or morality, unce aglan, the conservatives come short when It comes to real solutions; they have the morality and they are now trying o fcgislate i t Morality cannot be l e g i s l a t e , u t course, Immoral acts can be l e g i s l a t e against, but If we cannot or w dress the fundamental^ quwtlon rtw y people commit Immoral then m e r e problem is left unscathed.

However, even the remaining majority of liberals who do not see abortion as birth control often lose sight of abortion as a social problem rather than a legislative one.

Nielsen's No 'Hands-On' Experience 1

4

by Timothy Taylor Every semester there are a few faces missing from college campuses all over the country, soon to return to Impart their newly found (perhaps revealed, depending on the subject matter) knowledge upon waves of eager students. This semester, or year, is known in academia as a sabbatical. This concept, according to Webster, is "...a year or shorter period of absence for study, rest or travel, given at Intervals , originally every seven years, as to some college teachers, at full or partial salary." The powers that be at Hope College apparently have the same dictionary, as the sabbatical is a very real option for those that labor in the hallowed halls for a period of seven years. One faculty member that is taking advantage of this policy is Dr. Theodore Nielsen, professor of communications. Dr. Nielson spent the first semester of his long sabbatical with his wife Joyce in Ithaca, N.Y., while he intends to spend the present semester in the Holland vicinity doing research in the field of mass communications. Nielsen's reasoning for choosing Ithaca for his first semester location was twofold. First, a member of the administration at Ithaca College Is Dr. Tttomas Bohn, a friend of Dr. Nielsen's since they did their graduate work together at the University of Wisconson in the mid-sixties. This gave Nielsen the opportunity to communicate with Bohn on both a personal and a professional level. Many at Hope may remember that Bohn was on campus for several days In the fall of 1980 for several seminars and lectures. The second reason that Ithaca College was Nielsen's choice was the fact that they have a professional school In mass m e d i a . In w h i c h t h e r e a r e 225 undergraduates with a mass media major, as well as a masters program In the same field. These undergraduates come In as freshmen who are very focused, with the Intention of going Into some form of mass media as a profession. Because of the numbers, and because of the Interest, Nielsen states they have a lot of state-of-the-art equipment that they Just bought, "so I wanted to use that because one thing that I haven't done In a

(continued from p. 4)

while Is location electric field produclton work where you take the camera and battery operated equipment, and take It back and edit it like film." One responsibility that Nielsen was given In relation to this field work was the organization and direction of a video production unit, something new at Ithaca, as all of their previous work had been done with film. He, along with a number of advanced students at Ithaca, went out and shot on location, the principle function of this video production unit. Out of these adventures of the unit came three tapes for Ithaca College to be used as part of their recruiting and admissions programs. Two of the tapes will be shown to prospective students in their high schools, and the others are focused on Ithaca ahimnl, attempting to enroll them in the recruiting efforts of the college. In the process of making these videos, Nielsen was able to work with equipment such as computer editing equipment, that we don't have at Hope. Working with these Ithaca students led Nielsen to give some thought to the differences that a college image makes in its attractiveness to prospective students. "It was interesting to bump up against students other than Hope students. In other words, there are two different poles. Here (at Ithaca) you have people coming In as freshmen who think that they know what they want to do. They're pretty much sure that they want to be In the media... you have those people versus Hope, where I have very few people when they walk In as freshmen that are interested in a specific vocational career. It was something to see those kind of people." There, are advantages and disadvantages, according to Nielsen In each of the two aforementioned approaches. Many Ithaca students "were so trained from doing various things that they weren't flexible enough to adapt to the content.'* On the other hand, at Hope, Nielsen says, " We have people here who have a lot of content; people that can think through a problem, organize materials, are Interested In a lot of different things. They d o n t , however, have the level of technical sophistication as Ithaca.

Of course, comparing media salaries to more conventkmal on-campus Jobs Is hardly fair, but these positions Involve a great deal of time and often exclude on outside Job, so H is asking a great deal of Hope's media joeople to peilorm their duties with low monetary compensation on the basis of dedication alone.

byEricBmmmel L a s t week < 4 The Q u e s t " a s k e d freshman whether they would spend three more years at Hope, and many said yes because they had found the student/Instructor relationship to their liking. This week's question concerns one part, perhaps the crucial one, of that relationship: students' performance. Should instructors be held accountable c CO for their students' performance? Why or W why not? o w Yes 48% J No 44% J o At Times 8% u The results are amazingly close; yet w (X they are not indicative of the sentiment o this question evokes. Many of the X respondents felt that it was difficult to generalize and therefore would actually

I

fall within the ''At Times " category. 44If you have a bad prof" was a common disclaimer used in support of this rationale. What reasons did respondents answering yes give? Some felt that it was the instructors' chore to motivate the students to learn the material and arouse their interest in it. An education major felt strongly concerning this: "Yes, definitely. A good t e a c h e r will motivate students." The responsibility of an instructor did not end with "... just having to present the material. They should be held accountable to keep their interests in what the students are doing." The complaint, "a lot of instructors are not around to help students out" because they* are "too busy or don't have time" bolsters the case for instructor accountability which

extends beyond the manner in which they teach. One respondent summed it up nicely stating, "If you're an instructor you should have enough interest ot find out what the students are doing and if they're failing find out why.'! Others, however, thought that the instructors' responsibility lay primarily in their teaching method and would not include motivating students as a criterion for which instructors should be accountable. Here the answers get fuzzy and do not fit the strict yes or no categories. One student said yes because if there was a test question over material not presented in class, the professor should then be held accountable. With the teaching method criterion, some placed the emphasis on the class as a whole and not with the individual. If the class as a whole did well, the professor was alright; one should not worry if "it's just a dumb student." But what about the opposite case were most of the class did poorly and a couple of students aced the course? Then should the instructor worry 0 Another reason that arose not infrequently in support of holding instructors was glad to hear Dr. Granberg encourage his students to attend the recent per- a c c o u n t a b l e w a s m o n e y . S o m e respondents said they were "paying for a f o r m a n c e s by t h e P e t e r A r n o t t Marionette Theater, and to hear him echo service and there should be some manner my belief that no liberal arts education is to determine if we're getting what we complete without these outside activities. paid for."

For those replying "no", i f w a s the stusuch as chemistry, biology, physics, art, dent himself on which the emphasis was and English. I will never forget the seminar given by Dr. Cronkite on p l a c e d . One m a n said. "If they Paramecium or the lecture given by D.

Seniors Speak Out

Take a Stand Editor's note: With this article, we introduce another weekly column. In this column we will have Hope seniors open their minds to their fellow students, articulating the joys and the sorrows, the fond memories and not so fond regrets of the past four years. Our first column is written by Dean Morier, a psychology m a j o r and President of Psi Chi and Alpha Phi Omega and member of Mortar Board and the Women's Interest Group. It should come as no surprise, then, that Dean implores us to become involved. The anchor has allowed me this space to write anything I wish to as a member of the senior class. So what should I write? Should I criticise and complain about the things I dislike at Hope? What I would rather do is offer a bit of advice to the students, to expose them to some things I have learned as a student at Hope College. I would first like to urge students to get involved with activities ouside of classes. There are so many intersting lectures, discussions, films, and other activities that can add so much to one's education. I

this past fall, a series which offered such classics as Dr. Strangelove and Breaker Morant: alternatives to the normal diet of Dirty Harry and Brian DePalm films. The IRC foreign film series and the Mortar Board film series on the disadvantaged promise to be excellent film series. SAC is even getting in on the picture by (continued on p. 7)

Ice Is Out of the Freezer! formance. After the readings, the audience is invited to respond to what they have seen and heard. Last semester, J.C.E., an organization run entirely by students, began with five playwrites, and when the semester ended, a reading was done of five plays. One of those plays received an award from the American College Theatre Festival. This semester, I.C.E. has seven playwrites and the need for people to get involved is even greater. "Well, number one, we need actors," says Rick Tamlyn, I.C.E. Theatrical Manager. "With over seven plays being rehearsed there is ample opportunity for those people who would like to try their hand at acting. That's why we scheduled the meeting this Sunday."Tamlyn said those who can't make the meeting should give Dave DeWitt or him a call.

After taking a break over the holidays, I.C.E., Independent Creative Ensemble, is now back in full-force in the Theatre Department. Like the weather, I.C.E. has been working hard on several original, student-written plays since the beginning of the semester and this Sunday, J a n . 31, at 3 p.m. in the studio theatre of Dewitt Cultural Center, there will be a meeting for anyone who would like to get involved. "Our objective this semester," says Artistic Director D. William DeWitt, "is to give the student playwrites the opportunity to finish their scripts, hear them read out-loud, and then work on their scripts again. It is an on-going process." I.C.E. will be having several readings this semester. Readings are when actors have rehearsed a play, but haven't'memorized it, and while sitting and reading the script, they give an intimate per-

happen the teacher shouldn't have to take the r a p . " One insightful student said, 44 it's up to the student. The professor can only make it as interesting as possible." "No, a lot of it deals with initiative on the students' part. You could have the best prof in the world and it still would not help," replied a firm believer in student responsbility. One respondent went so far as to venture that "students should be held accountable for the instructors' performance." I wondered what method those respon. ding affirmatively would use. A poll of the students would be a reasonable device, some said. The instructors would receive a percentile rank relative to their colleagues. And then the poll would be published. I believe such an attempt to shame perfessors into performing would be counterproductive to the learning process. Professors might no longer use excellence as the criterion for grading and go to a system whereby everyone feels good about their performance no matter how poor it may actually be. On the other hand, professors might become m o r e attentive to students' needs thereby facilitating learning. Perhaps, the poll could be refined and a method similar to the Dean's list could be adapted to instructors. This way, they would not be as subject to student opinion and it might even prove to be an incentive. The question is, indeed, a difficult one. What makes it even more awesome is â&#x20AC;˘ that professors are evaluated by someone before they are hired and again when the question of tenure arises. If they a r e not judged by their students' performance then, what is the value of the educational system they are under and part of? I invite professors to take the time to share their views on this question with us by writing, care of the a/ic/?oreditor.

Food for Thought by Rowland D. VanEs, J r . Writing this column is a lot like taking English 113, only worse. I have an article due every Monday and every Sunday night I begin to think about my topic. I usually end up writing the piece itself on Monday just like I did in 113. The reason I say it is worse is because now instead of one reader, I have potentially 2,000 readers. Last semester this didn't bother me much because few people knew who I was. One week my name was spelled Roland, the next week it was Rowland Vanes, once dit was even spelled Towland. The final straw came when my article appeared under Dan Rutt's Peace o/M/miheading. This semester, however, all that will end. With that stupid picture up there, my amonymity is gone. I will have to be more accountable for my words. The stones will now be aimed. I doubt if this will stop me from being controversial but I will weigh my words carefullly. That is why I would like to begin with a topic that hits close to home. The topic is judging others. Judging other people is a game that I. like many others (especially other Chriastians), play too well. We are all to quick to point out the faults of others and ignore our own. A holier-than-thou attitude creeps into even the most careful Christian's mind. Romans 14:1-12 has a lot a say to this topic. The question then was: to eat meat or not to eat meat. The questions today are different but the result is the s a m e : a divided church. Too often we make a big deal out of minor issues. We are also too quick to judge the other person as " w e a k " or

"shallow" simply because tney nave arrived at a different conclusion than we have on a given topic. I have this problem after I have gone through the exercise of clarifying my position on a subject and then confront others who have not thought the issue through as completely or who simply have a difference of opinion. How do we overcome this trap? Three clues a r e offered by Fritz Ridenour in his book, "How to be a Christian Without Being Religious": 1. Be Genuine. It is important to be honest and open with other people. Don't play games. But be sure that your honesty is appropriate and sensitive to the situation. 2. Be Acceptant. Before cutting someone down, -ask yourself : Am I trying to help this person, or am I really trying to impose my value system on him or her? Do I respect and like people for what they are or do I want to make them over to my values? 3. Be Understanding. Put yourself in their shoes. Try to see the world as they see it. Take time to listen It is. so easy to become judgemental These three clues won't always work, but they can't hurt. It is also true that there are some issues where there can only be one right answer and there is no room for being wishy-washy. Even in these a r e a s however, the proper humility is essential. Whose to say that their answer is final? Remember that in the end, we all stand alone before, God's judgement seat. "Therefore, let us stop passing judgement on one another. Instead, m a k e up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brothers w a y . " (Romans 14:12).

Ethiopia by Mulugetta Ketema Africa is a vast continent facing many economic problems. Politically, the whole continent has become the battle ground of the two superpowers! Ethiopia is not exempted from these two problems. Ethiopia ia located in an area know as the Horn of Africa. It borders Sudan and the Red Sea to the north, Kenya to the south, and Somalia and Djubouti to the east.

of the refugees' homes and property has been damaged by war or ransacked by looters. Right now, the government of Ethiopia is in no position to be able to reconstruct all of the damage caused by the famine and war. Ethiopia aches from > many injuries, and therefore, needs Z economic aid badly. Unfortunately aid c> from the east or west is usually conditional. This leaves Ethiopia dependent on 5 8 foreign countries. In the past few years, Ethiopia has seen z many changes. Nearly half of the coun- ? try's budget is still tied up in defence. Now that Ethiopia's future looks a little brighter, perhaps some of the money now used for weapons will be used for more constructive purposes, such as feeding the poor, and helping the very old and very young of Ethiopia. Men and women who were once denied an education may now get a free educaion from high school* students, through a government program. It is predicted that in the next seven or eight years, most of the population of thirty-one million will be able to read and write. SUD&l Ethiopia's economy is based on agriculture and produce. Coffee is the major export item. It is the export of coffee on which Ethiopia has mainly relied on for foreign currency. However, the idea of being dependent on other countries must be dropped and the natural resourced which Ethiopia is believed to &OJjPgfy\ posses must be exploited to the fullest ex^ofcrneRvl tent possible. • All this will only be possible when peace HARM prevails in Ethiopia and throughout Africa. So far the present socialist government has been in power ever since the revolution and has not faced the fate of other military governments ' around the developing nations where governments change every two or three years. The government is now in the process of forming a Soviet type workers party. But the question will be, can Russian Socialism which is not working out properly in the e<wsr U.S.S.R. work itself out for Ethiopia? Time will tell only if nothing goes wrong on the way ahead. Generally most of the African nations face the same problems which face Ethiopia. African nations must stop fighting one another and realize that by fighting each other they a r e only adding problems to their current unsolved problems. We Africans must understand that apdiS ababa, t h e . c r r v we have been used by many super powers in the past and that we are still being used by many as a testing ground for their new student; he did not inform me that I could weapons and ideologies.

political problems, such as an ongoing war with neighboring Somalia over the Ogaden region of western Ethiopia, still exist. This territory is currently within Ethiopia's boundaries, but Somalia claims the area belongs to it. This conflict goes back to 1960 when Somalia gained its independence from Great Britain and Italy. Since then the Ogaden desert has been a burial ground for the many Samaliis and Ethiopians involved in the bloody war which took place a few years ago. This border conflict and other similiar conflicts are the result of European colonization which lead to the division of many African nations into different territories. When the Europeans left, they also left ;these nations with unmarked boundaries. Though the Ogaden w a r has died down, it will continue to flare up unless some peaceful talks are initiated between the two governments. The last thing any

What makes Ethiopia different from any other African nation is that is has the longest history of independence on the continent. In addition, Ethiopia is the oldest Christian state outside the Western Hemisphere. Until September of 1975, Ethiopia was a completely feudal nation, but then a historic revolution took place. It was lead by a group of junior officers in the army and air force and brought about the end of the emperor, Haile Selassis I, one of the longest reigning monarchs in the world. One on the main reasons behind the fall of the emperor was that his government completely ignored the problems which sprung from one of the worst droughts to ever hit the country. This 1970's drought caused more than 100,000 deaths. Currently, Ethiopia is led by the same group of officers who began the revolution. The head of state is currently Col. Mengistu Hailemariam. Despite his ties to the Soviet Union, Mengistu is perceived as more of a nationalist leader than a marxist one. Since the Americans were forced out of Ethiopia a f te r the revolution, the Soviets have moved in from the bordering nation of Somalia, where they were kicked out. Nearly eight years after the revolution, Ethiopia is now becoming politically stable. Though not as magnified, major (continued from p. 6) giving us the Saturday Night Specials, excellent films that don't attract the attention of Jaws or Tarzan the Ape Man. The audience for last week's film a film directed by Federico Fellini, was very receptive to that movie, save for the young women in the back who giggled all the way through it. See as many of these films as you can: they offer much more than most films being made today! Students should also get involved when something on campus bothers them, or when some action of the administration or a group on campus angers them. If the administration is trying to take away the student center, then fight for it (as was done last year). No one will know you are dissatisfied if you don't voice your opinion. Go to Student Congress or, better yet, join Student Congress and try to improve it. I have seen many talented students who could have added so much to the college community if the had only put a little time into some campus activities. Write for the anchor, join the Women's Interest Group, and help straighten out a few of the archaic things on this campus. I have no sympathy for those who complain but who will not do

African nation needs is war. In addition to the war with Somalia, the Ethiopian government has also been involved in a conflict with liberation fronts in the northern province of Eritrea. Until the last few weeks most of Eritrea has been under the control of these many revolutionary organizations, but the government is now in control of the province and has begun reconstruction in the area. The most important and pressing problem facing Ethiopia is the famine in the northern highlands and the eastern Ogaden region. The famine, in addition to causing thousands of deaths, has also forced many Ethiopians to suffer in refugee camps in Sudan, Kenya and Somalia. Though these displaced Ethiopians are slowly filtering back to their homeland, they will need a better environment to live in. Unfortunately, most

The Ladykillers: This Week's Saturday Night Special by Tom Andrews Peter Sellers was arguably the greatest comic actor of his time. It would take an insidious and difficult argument indeed to refute this claim. With the possible exception of Zero Mostel, Sellers simply had no competition. A list of his comic contemporaries (among them Mel Brooks. Woody Allen. Gene Wilder) shows Sellers alone as being what one could term appropriately an actor. He acted in a time of personalities: the Zeitgeist demanded that comic heroes retain their own personas: remain basically the same character throughout all their films. Sellers shuns, repudiates such a description. He is first and foremost concerned with the classical elements of acting: like the Shaman, Sellers eerily becomes a c r e a t u r e distinct from himself. He becomes his character; his character does not become him. Each Peter Sellers' role is absolutely original and distinguished from all others; yet each has the unmistakeable imprint of Sellers' wild ingenuity and crazy intelligence. With The Ladykillers (the SAC Saturday Night Special film; to be shown January 30 in Graves at 7:30 p.m.). directed by Alexander Macendrick, the Hope College community can take in one of the best and funniest films of Seller's early career. But to describe the film thus Is to mislead. The Ladykillers Is not a vehicle for Peter Sellers. It is a wild, farcical romp of a movie, whose focus (if it must be so called) is Sir Alec Gulness, a modern master in his own right and, by his own extraordlnaty merits (wider than Sellers'). fully worthy of the quasl-eulogy

I've given Sellers above. But a eulogy prosupposes a deceased to eulogize, and Sir Alec, we rejoice, is most certainly among the living. The Ladykillers is p e r h a p s the quintessential British comedy of the 1960's. As Roy Armes observes in A Critical History of British Cinema," ...The Ladykillers... avoids the pitfalls of sentimentality to become a black and surreal masterpiece..."

The album gives the listener an Informative biography of a band with a true cult following. One thing that all Feat fans will agree on Is how great the band was when they performed live. The band would usually record the tunes as soon as they were written, then go out and tour for six months to a year. It was not until they played on the road that the sound came together. Any way you cut it, "Hoy-Hoy" should be included in any Feat fan's collection as the final tribute, and well could be the album that turns them on and tunes them Into what Little Feat was all about. Give it a listen!

SAC'S Hit List Coal

This sinister black comedy of murder accelerates until it becomes a hilarious fantasy of murder; the more qrotesque, the funnier it becomes. When it's over, you realize that even the actors have been having a b o i s t e r o u s good time getting t h e m s e l v e s knocked off. Alex Guiness...is the leader of the horrendous gang. Katie Johnson is the cheerful old lady who upsets their fiendish plans by simply living in a world of her own. As her victims are, in some ways, even less real than she (she, at least, is as real as a good fairy), the disasters that befall them a r e extravagantly absurd.

If this depiction leaves one with an aftertaste of the morbid, or of the excessively dark, find refuge In the fact that the film is overwhelmingly funny. Which should raise Interest. Let's face it. This Is a world in which the comic and the tragic become less than comfortably distinguishable; note that so many great modern writers waver precariously on the comlc/traglc highwire - did not Eliot himself liken the modern poet's task to that of the stand-up comic? Enough pretentious dribble. The point Is. The Ladykillers is a funny and enjoyable movie. Go and see the film.

Beyond Hope by Kim Bishop Spain. The n a m e conjures up Images of Flamenco Dancers, bullfights, and towering cathedrals. On a recent trip I saw all of these and more. In the fall term of 1980 I was a student at the Institute of European Studies in Madrid for four months. In addition to taking in the tourist sights I lived with a Spanish family. 1 , 4 s a w both sides" of Spain so to speak. Think of it! You're in the middle of Spain standing on a street comer with all of your baggage sitting around you. You are alone. All you have is an address. The cab driver has just driven off and you have the sneaking suspicion that not only did you just take a ride but that you were also "taken for a ride." You pick up your bags and set off in what you hope is the right direction. Wrong. Doubt hits you and you try out your Spanish on the first kind-looking person that happens by. Success! She understood what you have been rehearsing to say in that situation. Whew! Made it to the right apartment building. Now, which stairway? Right is right, right?? Wrong. You go upstairs and knock on the door. Luckily the apartment is vacant so you don't have to try to explain. Then you try the left stairway. At last, the right door! Fear! You knock and the door is practically pulled off the hinges. The first thing that hits you is a cloud of fried fish and garlic; next thing are the smiles and the kisses (on both cheeks no less). Maybe Spain won't be so bad.., I had gotten off to a good start. Mini, the eighteen-year old daughter was taking me around on a quick tour of the apartment. "Quick" is an understatement. Their apartment was very small compared to the apartments 1 have seen in the U.S. First stop, the bathroom. Everything looked pretty familiar; shower, sink, and toilet. While she was ^(plaining the shower schedule (twice a week - maximum) she said the word " d u c h a r " (to shower) which I heard as ' i u c h a r " (to fight). Needless to say, I was a little concerned about fighting at all. I certainly didn't want to fight in the shower! I asked about this at dinner. I've never seen four people break up laughing like they did. I had made my first language mistake. In the U.S. I ususally have no transportation problem. I just get in the car and go. In Spain it was a different story. People do have cars but they aren't used as frequently in the city. Hence, the Metro (subway). Having lived in mid-sized cities all of my life, 1 had never had to cope with the monstrosity of a subway system. The first day I had to be at school my Spanish Senora wrote a few names of Metro stops I would need on a slip of paper and turned me in the direction of the Metro stop on our street. So far so good. I was on the right train going in the right direction (I had asked at least seven people just to be sure). According to instructions I staved on the train until the end of the line. The doors opened and I was pulled along with the current of people racing for the next line. As luck would have it I got flustered and confused in the crowd. I hadn't seen that many people milling around in one place since my f r e s h m a n r e g i s t r a t i o n at C e n t r a l Michigan University! I have no Idea where I finally ended up. 1 stood there dazed and confused for awhile, and somehow managed to sort out a few people from the mob who could tell me the right way to go. Needless to say, I was late for class. I had learned one Important lesson; don't be afraid to go against the crowd - otherwise known as survival in the subway. • It should be obvious by now that I actively sought out help wheneyer I got myself lost and this happened at least two or three times a day. At first It was a little embarrassing but the people were always ,Twilllng to help m e out and I soon got^ver

my fear. Back in the apartment, my Senora washed my clothes for me. This was by no means required of the families by the Instltute. Most of my friend at the Institute had to hunt out a laundromat In their neighborhood and haul their clothes through the streets. My Senora had a washing machine but no dryer. Consequently she had to hang clothes on a line that was rigged up In a space that opened to the outside between two buildings. One day I was reading in the next room and she called m e out to the window that opened onto the clothesline. There were two lines which were both full of dripping wet clothes. " K i m , " she said, "This line has the clothes for four people on it." She said this with a gesture Indicating the line in question. "The other," (another sweep of the arm in the appropriate direction) " H a s yourclothes." I learned to wear my clothes longer. One weekend shortly after I got to Spain I traveled to Northern Spain with four American students from the Institute: Jill, Deb, Steve and Roberto. We stayed in San Sebastian with a gorgeous bay that opened up to the ocean. Our stay was filled with visits to aquariums, museums. castles, sunning on the beach, rock climbIng at the foot of the mountains which framed the bay and disco-hopping In the evenings. Things were going well until we decided to go out rowing in one of the decrepit-looking rowboats which were for rent. In order to get to the boat we had to clamber over four others, untie a knot with more twist and turns than an advanced algebra problem, and then negotiate it out of a bunch of other boats which were between it and the bay. It was great fun puttering around in the bay. Everyone took a turn at rowing. We soon noticed water in the bottom of the boat. Although we noticed the water was steadily rising, we hadn't been too concerned. By the time our concern reached its peak we were a long way from shore. We quickly began rowing in the return direction. Luckily we could all swim; however, Jill had some expensive camera equipment which she didn't want to have end up in the drink. Our nerves soon became frazzled and "our a r m s tired. Steve .began to sing Walt Disney songs. Why not?? We all joined in and sang our way into shore. By this time you may be wondering if I ever went to school. The answer is yes. I spent 3 4 days a week in class at the Institute. All of the students there were Americans. The t e a c h e r s were all Spanish professors who spoke only Spanish. Some did know an occasional ^English phrase. During my stay in Europe, my greatest problem was the language. The first day of classes I was totally blown away. The professors stood in front of the classes and warbled at us in Spanish about the culture and some of the different accents which were prevalent in Spain. I figured out what they were talking about by discussing with some of the Spanish-speaking whiz kids in may classes. After three weeks I could understand about 75% of what was being spoken in classes (the remaining 25% was mostly because I was unfamiliar with the vocabulary). My favorite class was "History of Spain." It taught me that Spain was the stomping grounds for at least four different groups of people: Romans, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, and Arabs, not to mention the Spaniards. Another of my classes was Spanish Literature to 1800. If you can remember your confusion when first exposed to Shakespeare inUgh school, Imagine what It would be like learning it In Spanish! That feeling Is something like how it felt for me In that class. Overall, my studies served to give me a background in both the language and the culture which I later applied to my

'ravels. Long before I left for Spain 1 had declded to get the majority of my education there on the road. To this end I traveled nearly every weekend. Most of the time I traveled with a fellow Institute student from California. This kindred spirit was named Roberto. We were partners In all ^ r t s of adventures and misadventures throughout our travels in Spain and later ^ Europe. w e learned to travel in the most A v e r s e circumstances. A case In point our trip to Sevllla. We spent part of our weekend in the city and later decided to see one of the outlying villages where they specialized in the making of sherry, Unfortunately the village we wanted to see did not have a bus running there on Saturday. Undaunted, we went to another village nearby the first. We had a very Quiet stay On Sunday we arrived back in Sevilla. The plan was to catch a train headed back to Madrid the same day. There were only WO pesetas (a bit over $5) left in the kitty a n d the tickets required that we pay 300 m o r e a piece. The bank was closed so we w e r e stuck there for the night. We started looking for a cheap, CHEAP place to stay. The first stop on the list was too expensive. We were turning to leave when the Ouena (lady Innkeeper) told us If we went t0 another place on the other side of town w e would catch something from the sheets. She Illustrated this by scratching h e r arms. At that point Roberto began to bargain with her on the price. For emphasis we turned to leave a few times and she called us back. Finally, we took the room and left to enjoy a rare treat - a hot meal.

, were times when 1 thought whole crowds of women had been r u n through a paint shop which specialized in those two colors. Another trend I noticed was the height of the heels on womens' shoes. They ranged In height anywhere from a moderate two Inches to an arch-bending five inches, I was even more amazed by the frequency with which they wore them. Women wore them with Jeans and skirts, both casual and dress-up. It got to the point where I could tell Americans simply by looking at the flat heels on their shoes. One other note about fashion • the "preppy" look hadn't hit Spain when I was there. The Spanish people as a whole are very concerned about politics. I was amazed to find myself involved in political debates with my Spanish father. I'm the same person who wouldn't have looked twice at an article on politics before 1 came to Spain. Along with my heightened interest in politics came interest in the upcoming U.S. presidential election. The Spanish were very concerned about the results of the election. The magazines carried cartoons representing both candidates. I especially r e m e m b e r a cartoon of Reagan dressed as a smiling cowboy with some nuclear warheads in his back pocket. On election night I watched the returns at a huge p a r t y put on by the American Embassy Because of the time difference we didn't start getting firm results until very early In the morning I got back home and hit the sack 1 was awakened by my Senora a little while later with the question, "Quien gano?" (who won). I rolled over and said, " R e a g a n , " and knocked off again They seemed to take the results in stride.

iHii

Our usual fare on the road was cheese, bread, fruit and wine. Customarily, this was eaten on a roadside bench. That night we splurged and ate in a real restaurant! The next day was a trial. We had to run to the bank, return to the "Casa de Huespedes" to pay off the Duena, and rush to the train station in time to catch the 10.30a.m. train. We made it! Later on in the afternoon when the train was making one of its extremely frequent stops (at times I thought we would get where we were going faster if we walked), the hungries struck and we went into the station to buy some pastries. While we were standing at the counter waiting for them to wrap the pastries the train started to move out of the station! Roberto grabbed the package as I ran out the door I grabbed one of the door handles on the moving train and attempted to open it. It opened out! While I was struggling with the door, Roberto was running alongside the train. Luckily it finally opened and we clambered into the train. That was one of our more eventful weekends! A large part of my education in Spain came from watching the people In the streets. The Spanish have a custom. They " d a r un paseo" (take a walk) every evening. The streets literally fill with folk. The main diversion is people watching. I became quite well-versed In this activity and came up with a few observations. The feminine fashions at the time ran heavily to the colors of purple and pink. There

My trip to Spain was a real learning experience. I learned how to drink wine out of the various utensils Spaniards use, such as a " b o t a " ( commonly known here as a wine skin), and also* the special technique of drinking out of a "Porron." I brought one of these home with me and some people have told me it resembles a "bong". I found out a lot about differing political views by listening and talking to people Roberto and I met on the trains an( ^ ' n ^be trucks (when money was low we w ould "auto-stop" - a very apt name for hitch-hiking).

I also got very good at reading a map. That is no small feat in Spain where the streets seem to twist and turn as much as a three-year-old's doodlings. My greatest pleasure was meeting people. On a train for Italy we met a young couple from Barcelona. The four of us began talking to each other and found we were going to the same country. We traveled around Florence, Italy together and later met up again in Venice. With them and many other people I met I found friendship and understanding. I returned home with the knowledge that good friends don't have to be Just " m a d e in U.S.A."

Dutch Continue Winning Ways by Jim Goothouse Hope College, currently ranked elgth among NCAA III schools and averaging 91 points per game, recorded wins In their first two league games, defeating Alma 87-83 and Adrian 115-82 to move into a first place tie with Olivet in the race for the conference title The Dutch travelled to Alma to kick off their M1AA campaign and the Scots proved to be rude hosts. Alma led from the outset and took a 42-37 advantage to the lockerroom at halftlme, due largely to 56% shooting in the first 20 minutes. Instead of fading in the second half, Alma improved on their first half performance, upping their shooting to 64%, and stretched their lead even further over the favored Dutch. Hope finally lied the Scots on a Scott

Benson Jumper with 6:35 to go and gained their first lead on a steal, basket and two free throws by Rick Reece with 5:30 remaining. Instead of quitting, Alma regained the lead at 79-78 and had a chance to further this lead at the free throw line. The Scots blew this opportunity, however, and Todd Schuiling converted this miss into two of his game-high 18 points and a lead the Dutchmen wouldn't relinquish. With Alma forced to foul, Hope hit 7 free throws in the last minute, with Brian Beckman converting 5 of these opportunities Into points. It was at the line that Hope won the game, hitting 25 of 30 to only 13 of 20 for Alma. The Dutch again featured balance scoring, with Matt Neil, Beckman, Jeff Heerdt, and Benson joining Schuiling in double figures.

Far from duplicating the closeness of the Alma game, Hope's trip to Adrian to battle the winless Bulldogs proved to be an opportunity for everyone to play. After Jumping to a 50-37 halftime lead, the Dutch scored the first 17 points of the second half to turn the game Into a rout. All the Dutchmen scored, with six players reaching double figures, led by Benson with 22. Hope's scheduled g a m e a g a i n s t Kalamazoo last Saturday was cancelled because of bad weather and will be played at a later date. Last night the Dutch played host to arch-rival Calvin and Saturday they travel to Albion for a shootout with the Britons. The Dutch conclude the first half of the league slate at home against Olivet next Wednesday. Tipoff is at 8 p.m. at the Civic Center.

Wrestlers Keep Rolling by Randy Warren For the second week in a row, Hope's incredible wrestling squad took on the weather and a number of fine other teams in what this week was the Chris Taylor Memorial wrestling tournament held at Southwestern Michigan College. Only a powerfully stacked Notre Dame 1 team could overcome Hope's dominance in the tournament as three other strong teams succomed to the Dutch. Although Grand Rapids J.C. did not show up because of the weather, such powers as Grand Valley, Kalamazoo (who beat the Dutch earlier this year in the Hope Invitational) and Southwestern Michigan were represented. All three of Hope's wrestlers that were in championship matches won; Jeff Machiela (167 pounds), Phil Goff (190) and Garry Visscher (hwt.). Jeff 44 Killer" Machiela injured his first man and won by default. He then punished a Notre Dame wrestler into submission. In the finals Machiela showed no mercy as he pinned his victim in 1:08. Goff, who took first last Saturday at the Christian Collage Classic and won the 4'Most Outstanding Wrestler" award, kept his composure and beat his Kalamazoo opponant 18-9. In the finals, Goff outpointed a Notre Dame wrestler 8-7. Visscher got back into his first place form with a pin in only :48 in his first match. Garry then had no trouble with a 10-0 win for first place in the big weight class. Winning third place were Randy

Pfahler (177 lbs.) and George Harper (190). Pfahler won his trophey with a 3:10 pin. Harper picked up his marble and medel with a 12-9 slashing. Fourth's for the orange and blue were taken by Doug Lehman (118), Brad Conrad (150), Pete White (158), Bob Karel (167), and Tim Mindling (177 lbs ). Conrad won matches by pin in 3:24 and 1:20. Brad also won by decision 2-1 over N.D. and 11-6. Karel won by pin in 3:10. Others wins for the day were recorded in two weight-classes. At 142 pounds, Randy Warren decked a man in 3:14 while Tom Hicks finished his victim off in only :40. At 150 pounds, Chris Matthews won 75. Last Wednesday, the grapplers trounced conference opponents Calvin 29-9. Winning for the Dutch by pin was Don Groenveld in 2:46 at 134 pounds. Decision wins were recorded by; Chris Matthews at 142 pounds 16-3, Pete White at 158 pounds 10-2, George Harper at 190 pounds 13-0 and Garry Visscher at Hwt. with a "Kool" win of 2-1. Brad Conrad picked up a forfeit win at 150 pounds. The wrestlers had Kalamazoo for opponents Tuesday night and will now have a week off. The two day GLCA tournament to be held at Wabash Indiana Feb. 5 and 6 is next on the schedule. This should be a^good break for the wrestlers who have only dropped one dual meet this year and have place lower than second only once in tournament action.

The other two records came from the 200 medley relay consisting of Waite. Haven, Joan Wilterdink, and Kirsten Newhof. Diver Lynn Bufe finished out the remarkable afternoon by making a new mark on the 3 meter. "1 thought we would have had a tougher battle," stated Coach Patnott. "We swam very well though." The men however found things to be a litte more complicated as they fell victim to a 79-34 defeat by Grand Rapids Junior College. The only record setting event was posted by Roy Davis as he broke his own mark in the one meter board with a score of 235.15. At the swimming end of the pool it was freshman Tim Dykema and Jay Little who added some winning ways for the Dutch. Dykema took first place in the 200 free and missed out on another blue ribbon as he finished two-one thousands of a second behind the JC winner. Little also added a little more excitement in the 100 free by missing out on first place by half a second but posting a personal best however. The women handed yet another team a humbling defeat as they stepped on the JC women by a score of 64-48. It was Stanwood and Waite again breaking their own records for a half a week ago; the former in the 200 free and the latter in the 100 fly. Sarah Souter did not let co-diver Bufe's record in the three meter live long as she set one of her own.
