Two Frats Viewed As Sexist A s r u s h 1988 c o m e s to a close, t w o of H o p e s fraternities have cojne under fire for sexist rush advertisements. Both the Cosmopolitan and Arcadian fraternities have been a c c u s e d of u s i n g s e x i s t a n d h a r a s s i n g m e t h o d s in a n a t t e m p t to g a i n more rushees.

The Cosmo poster contains pictures and advertisements from the m a g a z i n e Cosmopolitan. In the poster a beautiful women in a low cut d r e s s is s h o w n s a y i n g "indulge yourself a little," a quotation taken from a Swiss chocolate bar advertisement. The poster also contains a schedule of Cosmo rush events. Ironically, the poster (or more accurately ones like it) has been a common method of Cosmo advertising on and off over the last six years, each time leading to charges of sexism by the fraternity. Though the pictures and some quotations are from Cosmopolitan magazine, this particular poster and its content was chosen over others at the organizations business meeting. Cosmo President Sean Luckman denies charges of sexism, saying teh fraternity has made a conscientious attempt to tone down the poster. The Arcadina fraternity has come under controversy stemming from table tents advertising their traditional Komonawanlai dance. When refolded, the table tents

The education e f f o r t , said spokesman E a r l Fink, is aimed at college students, and at least some a p p e a r to be paying attention.

Congress 1 Changes Parietals By Julie Thornes anchor Staff Writer The Student Congress met last Thursday, Jan. 21 at 9 p.m. and finalized changes in the current visitation hours. P r e v i o u s visitation hours began daily at 11 a.m. and lasted until 12 a.m. Sunday-Thursday.

Trustees Okay Van Zoeren Renovation; College To Get New VAX Computer System By Brian Breen anchor Editor It was more than business a s usual last Thursday and Friday as Hope's Board of Trustees met for their annual meeting on campus. In addition to granting tenure and academic ranks, the 46m e m b e r b o a r d also m a d e several financial decisions aimed at taking the college into the 1990^ and beyond. Rennovation of the old Van Zoeren Library and VanderWerf Hall, the purchase of a new computer system and several b u s i n e s s v e n t u r e s w e r e all approved. Faculty m e m b e r s Dr. Barry Bandstra, Dr. Anne Larsen, H e r b e r t M a r t i n , D r . Boyd Wilson, and Ronald Wolthuis were all granted tenure at Hope. Bandstra, Martin, and Wilson were also promoted to the rank of associate professor. Dr. William Cohen, Dr. Donald Cronkite, Dr. J a n e Dickie, Dr. J a m e s H e i s l e r , Glenn Van Wieren, and Dr. Dennis Voskuil

w e r e all p r o m o t e d to the academic rank of full professor. The Board authorized the college to seek bids on the $4.2 million renovation of Van Zoeren and VanderWerf Halls. The project will link the two buildings with the newly constructed Van Wylen Library, completing the f i n a l p h a s e of a m a j o r development project. The departments of computer science, economics and business administration, education, mathematics, nhysics, sociology, and t h e A c a d e m i c S u p p o r t Center will all be housed in the two r e n o v a t e d b u i l d i n g s . Construction is scheduled to begin this s u m m e r with a tentative completion date of J a n u a r y 1990. The campaign for Hope will fund approximately $1.2 million of the cost of the renovation. The remaining $3 million will be raised by the D e v e l o p m e n t Office and a five-year Michigan Higher Education tax-exempt loan. Over $100,000 was given to the college for beautification of the

grounds surrounding Van Zoeren, VanderWerf, and the new library. A plaza will be constructed in the middle of Graves Place. It will be named Van Andel Plaza in honor of donors Mr. and Mrs. J a y Van Andel of the Am way Corporation of Grand Rapids. With the completion of the r e n o v a t i o n s and the new admissions building on 10th Street, the value of the c a m p u s will reach over $70 million. "We have a very valuable campus,' 1 said President John Jacobson. An anonymous donor provided the college with a gift of $125,000 to partially fund the purchase of the Holland Theater on Eighth S t r e e t . A c c o r d i n g to B i l l Anderson, vice president of Business and Finance, the asking price for the theater was around $190,000. However, he declined to give the exact amount the college paid for the building. The trustees also supported the investment of $150,000 in the Riverview Development Project, a privately-funded limited p a r t n e r s h i p d e s i g n e d to

integrate the riverfront with the nearby college c a m p u s and downtown business district. " T h e good health of the business district is important to the college," said Jacobson. "The quality of this a r e a has a direct bearing on the quality of life for our students." When fully developed, the p r o j e c t will include a rejuvenated downtown commerical district with retail, office, r e s t a u r a n t , and light industrial production. Residential a r e a s overlooking the Macatawa River a r e also a component of the project. "Hope College is an urban college, we're building on Hope's m a s t e r p l a n , " said Tom Wolterink, who with f o r m e r Hope president Gordon Van Wylen, is one of the developers of the Riverview Project. " ( W e want) to blend together as one... when it's c o m p l e t e d , " added Wolterink. Recreational developmentis also planned, too. An ice skating rink and non-motorized boating are two possibilities. A sculling

course is another idea that m a y be considered. Replacing the school's fiveyear-old computer system w a s also approved by the Board of Trustees. Two Digital VAX 8350 systems will be purchased at a cost of approximately $620,000. There air conditioning, staff training and maintenance will also be upgraded. The system price includes a 20 percent d i s c o u n t by t h e D i g i t a l Corporation and will also be financed by a MHEFA loan. Rising enrollment and admission \patterns have m a d e Hope look at building another dormitory. Although constructing a new dorm is not yet planned, Jacobson did say the offices occupied by the education and business departments would be converted into student housing. "We think we c a n w a i t (on a new dormitory)," said Jacobson. Over the past decade the college has invested over $20 m i l l i o n in c a m p u s constructionand i m p r o v e m e n t projects.

Students Fight Over Radio Station A L B U Q U E R Q U E . NM (NSNS) - A programming change made without student or listener approval at KUNM, a public radio station licensed to the University of New Mexico, h a s m u s h r o o m e d into a bitter fight between a d m i n i s t r a t o r s and student and c o m m u n i t y leaders. Two s e p a r a t e lawsuits charging f r a u d a n d civil r i g h t s violations a r e now pending a g a i n s t UNM a d m i n i s t r a t o r s and KUNM management, and the controversy has sparked n u m e r o u s rallies a n d p r o t e s t s on campus. At issue is a decision m a d e by m a n a g e m e n t last May, a f t e r students h a d left for t h e s u m m e r , to r e p l a c e a 20-year-old KUNM tradition known a s " F r e e f o r m " broadcasting, an eclectic m i x of music a n d cultural p e r s p e c t i v e s d e s c r i b e d by o n e D J a s " a n y t h i n g f r o m M o z a r t to Motown to high Andes folk m u s i c .

Now, led by a coalition of students, citizen F r e e f o r m f a n s a n d m e m b e r s of the Latino c o m m u n i t y h e r e , a backlash m o v e m e n t h a s frozen much of the station's funding and galvanized support from thousands of listeners. " U l t i m a t e l y , this is an issue of s t u d e n t i n v o l v e m e n t in a d e m o c r a t i c s y s t e m , " said H a r r y Norton, president of S t u d e n t s for KUNM, which is t h e m a i n student group involved in the dispute. " T h e s t u d e n t s provide

the station with $105,000 a y e a r in m a n d a t o r y fees, and h a v e no control u n d e r c u r r e n t policy." Norton c h a r g e d that KUNM m a d e several public denials of plans for a p r o g r a m m i n g change, then w a i t e d until students and faculty h a d left c a m p u s and went a h e a d with one. M a n a g e m e n t of the station is h a n d l e d by UNM a d m i n i s t r a t o r s and employees; t h e r e a r e no students involved. Norton e x p l a i n e d t h a t the f o r m a t change goes d e e p e r than mnere musical tastes. 4< Freeform included many cultural f o r u m s a n d i s s u e s , " he said. "We h a d an outspoken w o m e n ' s right a d v o c a t e : s h e ' s been suspended. Another guy would dedicate songs to i n m a t e s in New Mexico prisons and c o m m e n t on prison issues.

The panel discussion is entitled " D i r e c t o r s Working with Playwrights: Collaboration versus Coopting from P a g e to Stage," and it will center around precautions of cherishing a new play without indulgence while also heightening the d r a m a of creation without the t r a u m a of art versus commercialization. Also serving on the panel will be Peggy O'Brien, this y e a r ' s Meyer Lecture p e r f o r m e r for the college's Women's Week, held Feb. 1-5. Broglio is a veteran of all aspects of theatre. He has directed over 150 shows for stage

and television as well as one animated film. As an Equity a c t o r and d i r e c t o r , he participated in the development of many original scripts for regional t h e a t r e , c h i l d r e n ' s theatre, and television. Recently, he and his wife, Yoli Sherba Broglio, the coordinator of the Hope College Great Performance Series, co-authored and developed Unfinished Business, a play set to music which toured California and Connecticut.

Feature Way, Way, Way Off-Campus: The GLCA New York Arts Semester

Story and Photos By M i k e W i l l

The New York a r t s p r o g r a m could be called the most fun thing I've ever done. It w a s the best educational experience a young art student could ask for. I wqould never have considered going off c a m p u s during my senior year, but I don't r e g r e t it now. I had the pleasure of

Why go off campus? Good q u e s t i o n . Why l e a v e t h e ' s e c u r i t y ' of Hope? Simply enough, everyone needs a change of pace, and isn't it logical to go somewhere you've never been and get a full load of credit in the balance? T h a t ' s what my friends who are p r o g r a m alumni asked






i m


working with two prominent city artists, Judith Bernstein and Gerry Griffin. The city itself is a fantastic place to live. Who could resist Browdway, Soho, The Village, and assorted museums? My return to Hope and Michigan did hit m e with a bit of culture shock, but a f t e r the Big Apple, who c a r e s ?

me, and p r o g r a m director Alvin Sher convinced me to take this option seriously. We talked about my interests and he said that he could m o s t likely find a professional artist who would be compatible with me. Go? The more you think about it, the better it sounds. I arrived in New York City in

May for my personal interviews with too much luggage and no idea of where I was. Fortunately this changed. After consultations with Alvin I had interviews arranged that very day. The choice of sponsor is very open; if you don't seem compatible, you don't have to work for them. Judith Bernstein is a painter who works on predominantly largescale feminist t h e m e works, and is known for the 4 hairy screw' pieces. My favorite job, though, was with sculptor Gerry Griffin, who specializes in natural media works, using wax, bamboo, b u r l a p and other e l e m e n t s . Gerry treated m e more like a partner than a student, and often I was responsible for the form of whole pieces. Such trust is heartening. Of course, every apprenticeship varies, so each s t u d e n t s h o u ld e x p l o r e all possibilities. Studio art isn't the only o p t i o n - d a n c e , t h e a t r e , music and literature in both production and organizational levels a r e offered. New York is to fine art and avant garde culture what Holland is to tulips, windmills, slow Sundays, and conservatism. The city is a true melting pot in every sense of the word. Any option possible is out there somewhere. My work places were in Chinatown and Little Italy so each day w a s a journey Into a new world. The nightlife is a s v a r i e d a s t h e population. One can go to a neighborhood club or popular dance clubs, such a s Limelight, Kat Club or the Palladium (where Club MTV is filmed). Theatre can be very cheap. Even Broadway shows have discount tickets for students at lower r a t e s . One can find m a n y musical a c ts at the offing from classical to popular, even obsure local bands or rising new age artists. F r o m the cloisters to Wall Street, it's out there! Actually, any off c a m p u s program is a great chance to find a new world and meet new friends, but New York is the pinnacle of a fine a r t experience.


I m a d e friends with students from m a n y different p a r t s of the country: New Mexico, Illinois, Ohio, New J e r s e y , Pennsylvania and other states. Several of these people b e c a m e close to m e and we now correspond to keep up to date. And if you try the p r o g r a m you might find that you've

changed some. Growth isn't always visible, until your frineds notice at least. A good friend of mine from Queens noticed that I walk fast. It isn't that strange, but he r e m a r k e d that 1 had a New York pace. Maybe it isn't the speed you need, but just a change of pace!

It will be much less expensive to expand back into Van Zoren when the time comes than to build an expansion onto Van Wylen," Jensen said. As for the rest of Van Zoren, the main floor will eventually house the business and economics departments, computer science classrooms and other multi-purpose classrooms. The education and sociology departments, as well as the Academic Support Center will be located on the second floor, The m a j o r r e n o v a t i o n project involving Vander Werf will include ouilding a

" C o m p l e t i o n of t h e renovation isn't projected until the Spring of 1990, said President Jacobsen.

Men's Hoop Team Loses On The Road To Albion And Calvin


By Ben H a n n e m a n anchor Sports Editor To close out the first half of the MIA A s e a s o n t h e F l y i n g Dutchmen basketball team journeyed to Albion to meet the Britons in the first of four road games Earlier this season the Britons were giant killers as they beat up on Calvin to give the Knights their first league loss this season. The s a m e w a s t r u e last Wednesday night as Albion downed Hope 96-93 on the strength of 24 consecutive free throws. The Dutchmen were able to stay with the Britons for much of the first half despite a 15-3 Albion run and despite shooting only 45 percent from the floor. At the half the Britons led 48-41. Rebounding also helped Albion maintain a lead that was never

threatened until late in the game. Albion held a 23-14 a d v a n t a g e on the glass at intermission. The second 20 minutes of action began much as the first had ended, with Hope holding the edge in momentum. The Britons wouldn't quit and kept the lead just out of reach Then with' :34 seconds left, after Greg Mitchell had hit four consecutive three-poiriters, Jim Klunder filled it. up from threepoint country to give Hope a 93-92 lead, their first since early in the contest. Albion answered with a deuce to regain the lead and would only need two free throws to ice the g a m e a s time b e c a m e the Dutchmen's sole enemy. The Britons defeat of the Dutchmen, dropping Hope to 5-1 in the league, set up a showdown on Saturday between Hope and

the Knights of Calvin, a rivalry to match any in the country. Unfortunately for Hope fans, the Knights had some giantkilling plans of their own as they downed the Dutchmen 89-80 in a s e e - s a w c o n t e s t at C a l v i n Fieldhouse before m o r e than 4,100 fans. Hope spread the lead out to 11 points with four m i n u t e s remaining in the first half on the strength of J a c k Holman's four three-pointers. Answering Holman's hot hand for Calvin was center Dan Davis. The 6'6 junior from Newaygo threw in 29 points in all, 18 of those 29 in the first half. Despite suffering their second consecutive loss the Dutchmen are still atop the MIAA, but the road trip doesn't get any easier. Hope must now continue east to take on the Alma Scots tonight.

Lady Dutch Lose To Calvin By Ben H a n n e m a n anchor Sports Editor It wasn't a really good day for Hope College sports over the weekend as the w o m e n ' s basketball t e a m lost to Calvin BBSS to start the dismal weekend for Dutchmen sports fans. The Lady Dutch were able to overcome a 12-point deficit to pull within two points late in the game. "The key to our comeback was that we definitely have a strong attitude as far as refusing to let people walk on u s , " said Hope head coach Terri McFarland despite her t e a m ' s loss. "We

have an intensity now that we really didn't have at the start of the season." Down by six at halftime the Lady Dutch adopted what the t e a m has called a " R e f u s e to Lose" theme, a s they have all season. " A m y W a r r i n e r especially toward the end was diving for everything and really gave us a spark with ther three-pointers." The junior guard from Greenville hit just nine points, all in the second half including two three-pointers down the stretch. The Lady Knights were led by freshman standout guards Sara Ondersma and K a r e n Hiemstra.

You've got to admit that this past weekend was a sports l o v e r ' s d r e a m . If you a r e anything like m e you didn't get anything done. Pretty bad, eh? F i r s t we had the women's basketball g a m e between Hope and Calvin. Okay, so we didn't win, but we did come back from 12 points down to m a k e it close. Then at 3 p.m. we h a d the m e n ' s game, arguably a s big a rivalry as the MichiganMichigan State matchup. One had the choice of watching it on television, listening to it on one of four radio stations, or s c r e a m i n g our h e a d s off at the g a m e in Grand Rapids. We didn't win, but d a y s like that a r e what college life is all about. Think about this for a moment.


The four y e a r s of college, or however long we take to get through all this, m a r k the last time we can really j u m p around and act crazy. After college we'll all be busy worrying about our i m a g e s or about what our bosses think about us that we won't h a v e time for c r a z i n e s s , m u c h l e s s basketball games. As if Saturday wasn't enough to satisfy the hunger of the real sport fanatics, Sunday w a s a day to end all days. At noon, a f t e r waking up from a r a t h e r late Saturday, the Philadelphia 76ers took on the Boston Celtics, then Michigan played at Syracuse, taking us then to the Super Bowl pre-game. Wait a minute? The Super Bowl didn't s t a r t until 6 p.m..

Cosmos Respond to Letter By Student Development Staff On behalf of the Cosmopolitan Fraternity, I would like to respond to a number of condemnations aimed at our organization stemming from our current rush poster. Certain campus organizations have accused our organization of being "offensive in (its) rush events" and have alleged that our advertisementis in "direct violation of Hope College's Sexual Harassment Policy." My first reaction upon hearing this news was one of astonistanent and sheer disbelief, however, it soon became apparent these organizations were indeed actually serious about this ludicrous matter. To myself and any other reasonable person, our poster does, in no way, appear to promote sex, nor does it in any intentional manner, appear to degrade women. The word "sex", or any reference to it, n e v e r a p p e a r s on t h e advertisement. The closest possible reference that could be possibly misconstrued as having anything remotely to do with sex is the line, "My most satisfying relationship was with a Cosmo." Therefore, the only way our poster could be interpreted as promoting sex would be if the reader, in his or her own mind, believed all relationships involve




s^x, or if he or sne believed the terms "sex" and "relationship" to be interchangeable or synonomous. It has also been suggested that our poster portrays women as m e r e s e x o b j e c t s . This interpretation is a possible one in that the woman on the ad is wearing rather revealing c l o t h i n g . H o w e v e r , our advertisement goes no further In its use of a female model than the majority of advertising today. In fact, our ad Is tasteful In that It stops well short of other ad campaigns such as Obsession by Calvin Klein. In addition, our poster Is far less offensive than virtually any ad or video on MTV. In further defense, our "coverglrl" comes directly off the cover of the January Issue of 'Cosmopolitan' — a magazine exclusively for women, edited by reknown feminist Helen Gurley Brown. If Ms. Brown can sell millions of her magazines monthly, each Issue displaying a woman wearing revealing clothing, how then can our use of one of these magazine covers present such a threat to the "dignity, safety and self-respect of all students, faculty and s t a f f ? If the Cosmopolitans are to be singled our for our use of the advertisement, then surely the Hope Geneva Bookstore should be reprimanded for displaying and selling such an offensive magazine. To conclude, I would also like to respond to some rather cheapshots directed at our fraternity by a letter In last week's 'anchor' written by some anonynous m e m b e r of the S t u d e n t Development Staff. Contrary to

what the leter stated, our poster was In no conceivable way, shape, or form, offensive to students and faculty " In the same way that a swastika might be offensive to Jews or a reference to the Ku Klux Klan might be offensive to blacks." I would caution the person who wrote the letter to be less wreckless. In his or her use of analogies In the future. To the best of my knowledge, the Cosmopolitan Fraternity has not been recently Involved In any mass genocide nor have we been burning crosses at our rush events. I would sincerely hope this letter will put this absurd matter to rest. CHARLIE MURPHY COSMOPOLITAN TREASURER

Gays Are Round Pegs That Don't Fit Round pegs don't fit Into square holes. Most of us found this out when we were two or three. But I remember, back when I was In Kindergarten. The teacher gave every kid In the class a block, some square, some round, and some stars. And we all had to go up to the front of the classroom and pound our peg Into the right hole. It went smoothly until this one boy tried to push his round ped Into a square hole. He grunted, red-faced, and before the teacher could stop him, he succeeded. The peg was In the hole — sort of. In getting the peg to fit, he had split off some pieces. He started to cry, an early lesson earned the hard way.

Being gay makes you a round peg. Looking at you from another peg's point of view, from the side, you look like any other. But you, and I, are not and will never be square. If we are forced Into them, we will lose our gayness, but we won't be complete, and we still won't have the edges that straight people do. Of course, everyone fits In slightly different places, but that's half the challenge of life — finding where we belong. Just don't let all the square pegs out there use their sharp edges to carve off pieces of you they don't like. You belong, just as you are. NAME WITHELD REQUEST


Women's Issues Claims Fraternity Advertising Is Sexist And Degrading Women's Issues Organization takes this opportunity to voice our offense at the recent posters advertising the Cosmopolitan rush evetns and the table tents for the A r c a d i a n "Komonawanalai" dance. We ask the E x t r a c u r r i c u l a r Actlvltes Committee take action against these fraternities In light of their direct violation of Hope's Sexual Harassment Policy. The policy requires "an obllgatlonof every person In the college community to protect the dignity, safety, and self respect of all students, faculty and staff." We are offended by the female model the Cosmopolitans used to sell their organization coupled with the degrading

phrases surrounding her picture (I.e., "indluge a little," and "one of my m o s t s a t i s f y i n g relationships was with a Cosmo"). This threatens both the dignity and self respect of every member of the Hope CoUege Community. Additionally, the Hope College Community is threatened by the Arcadians' use of insulting language Including the dance's name (pronounced "come-on-Iwanna-lay-ya") and the words "free lals" enclosed by a phallic symbol. Also, when folded horizontally the table tent reads "blowjob." We find these advertisements offensive In their use of sex to promote their rush events and

Arcadians Apologize For Komonawanalai Table Tent In response to the charges put forth by the WomeN's Issues Organization following our Komonawanalai rush event, the Arcadian Fraternity offers our sincere apologies to anyone offended by our publicity. Our intention was not to degrade or be disrespectful to anyone, but it was merely an act of poor judgement intended to provoke a h u m o r o u s r e s p o n s e . We approached it in fun, not looking to insult any group or Individual. The response we actually received from this incident is contrary to our intentions as a fraternity. During this year, prior to any of these recent developments, we

pledged our support to Women's Week 1988, an event which we find ourselves involved in at this time. This was not a token gesture, but a conscientious decision to support a worthy cause. Also, we are bringing a speaker to campus for Sexual Awareness Week later this semester. We mention these, not as a rejection of the arguments of the Women's Issues Organization, but as a clarification of our true perspective. Once again we are sorry for any offense that we may have caused. THE MEN OF ARCADIAN

feel that the fraternities' v i o l a t i o n of the s e x u a l harassment policy, which in some cases has been an annual occurence, demands a response via the formal committee structure of the college. The Women's Issues Organization Is asking the Extracurricular Activities Committee to consider these indictments by reviewing the charters of the Cosmopolitan and Arcadian fraternities. We feel that Inquiries must be made Into the function and Intent of these advertisements, as well as those of the fraternities themselves. W O M E N ' S
