Parking proposal approved unanimously by Congress by Scott Runyon editor-in-chief A revised parking proposal was passed unanimously with two abstentions by Student Congress last Thursday after an earlier version passed the previous week was recalled and discussed again. The move to rescind (reverse) and reconsider the proposal that was passed Jan. 21 was initiated by Congress member Robin Wagner ( '95) who is also head of the parking committee that created the proposal. She felt that the way the proposal was passed a week earlier left it incomplete, neglecting critical PR photo points. She sent a letter to all Congress MANY STUDENTS will remember Dr. Jentz (1934-1993) for his selfless giving and representatives explaining why the the way he shared his life with his students. parking issue needed to be reconsidered after it had already been passed.

Wagnermade a 15 minute presentation briefing Congress on the numbers of permits sold and spaces available on campus for night and daytime parking as well as percentages of permits sold to freshmen, commuters and upperclassmen during the past seven years. She reported that there are currently 755 spaces available to Students not including 35 snow removal spaces which cannot be used in the winter. Since 992 overnight permits have been sold this semester (excluding commuters). 237 more permits were sold than spaces available. Freshmen parking was also a major issue for Wagner. This semester's statistics showed thai freshmen wouldn't get any permits under the formerly passed proposal. She wanted a guarantee for freshmen to get some spaces. The proposal that is being sent to the administration for consideration includes five points: I. Public Safety will evaluate campus parking to determine the number of realistically usable parking spots available to Hope students. II. The number of student parking permits sold shall be reduced to equal the number of student parking spaces on campus. ID. The number of parking spaces sold to freshmen students shall not exceed 100. IV. The remainder of available campus parking permits shall be distributed on a first-come first-serve basis to students at or above sophomore status. V. The cost of a campus parking permit shall be increased from $40/ year to $45/year, or $25/semester.

Thinking Ahead Stephanie Grier

NEWS OF INTEREST

You Get What You Pay For The media is a ruthless, heartless group of scavengers who thrive upon the pain of others and make small situations and events much larger than they really are. The press has long since lost its initial purpose, which was simply to provide accurate information. It has moved toward a brand of sensationalism and bias that is appalling to its readers and an embarrassment to the people of this nation. With statements like these, Bill Clinton was able to overcome the potentially disastrous Gennifer Flowers embarrassment of last summer. As is evidenced by the tide of public opinion which has long since turned against the press. Many people agree with Clinton's assessment of the media situation here in America. However, have any of them thought about why journalism is the way it is? Clearly journalism has evolved a great deal over the past twenty years. In order to illustrate this evolution, all one must do is think back to the Camelot days of the Kennedy

presidency. Admittedly, many members of the news media looked the other way as strange women went traipsing up and down the back steps of the White House. However, in the late 1980s, Gary Hart's political career was all but destroyed after photographs of his dalliance with Donna Rice surfaced. Why the swing? Some critics (including this one) believe that Watergate is more than partially responsible for this shift in media philosophy. Much of the information which eventually ended the Nixon presidency was unearthed by two Washington Post reporters and not by the authorities themselves. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein cut through the haze of governmental secrecy in order to bring forth the truth, and in doing so they established the media's assumed role as "watchdog of the government." Over time, the media has taken this role to an extreme. Unearthing incriminating information has

seemingly become more important than just leaving well enough alone, and the private lives of our leaders and celebrities have become just as important as their abilities or talent. However, it may be said that the press isn't alone in taking this watchdog role to an extreme. The people of this nation have allowed them to do so. and may have even forced them into it. It seems to be the people of America who thirst for the lowdown on everything related to the government and Hollywood. If we didn't, why would television shows like Primetime Live, 20120, Hard Copy and A Current Affair be so popular? Why would the print media retain any readership? It certainly seems as if the media is giving the citizenry what it wants. Perhaps President Clinton and the others who assume his point of view need to scrutinize the media less thoroughly and lay the blame where it belongs—with the people who consume what the press is offering.

Hope has ties to Middle East by David Chamin news editor Renewed international attention has recently focused on the MiddleEast. A month ago, Israel deported 415 suspected members of the Palestinian fundamentalist group Hamas. Hamas, an acronym for "Islamic Resistance Movement", is pledged to wage a jihad, or "holy war", against the Israeli state. Suspected Hamas members were deported to Southern Lebanon in response to attacks against Israeli soldiers. The Palestinians were deported without a hearing. Unfortunately for the deportees, Lebanon was unwilling to allow them official entry, and thus the deportees have been dependent upon the Red Cross for food and medical attention. Hope College has its own connection to the Middle-East in two Palestinian students, Nasir Beitello and Hanan Awwad. Beitello, who has kept current with the actions in the region remains concerned with the situation. "This is very, very, big in the Middle E a s t . " Beitello said, expressing doubt that the new found solution would solve the situation. "It is so complicated; I think it will be a while before there will be peace." In response to Monday's announcement that Israel would agree to the immediate repatriation of 100

of the deportees. Awaad said. "I think that the Israelis realize that the deportations would not help the peace process...they are beginning to accept a solution." Two weeks ago. Israel acknowledged that as many as fourteen of those deported were cases of mistaken identity, and allowed them to return, along with those seriously ill. Beitello commented that this was "A good sign," and that perhaps a solution was in the works. Yet, in a recent poll, 91 percent of the Israeli public is against allowing the Palestinians to return to Israel. Privately however, among the Cabinet members of the Rabin government, sentiment has grown for allowing the deportees to return. Pressure for the repatriation of the deportees has increased as international efforts are coming to bear in the United Nations. Secretary General BoutrosButros Gali has called for a resolution both condemning and imposing sanctions on Israel if the deportees are not allowed to return. State Department officers have been using "active diplomacy" in an effort to avoid any embarrassment for the Clinton Administration. The issue is particularly delicate because of the nature of Hamas. Completely opposed to the peace process, the members of Hamas are more than willing to hold out for total and unconditional repatriation. Beitello views Hamas as gaining in strength, "getting bigger—many

MARYLAND Thurgood Marshall, former Supreme Court Justice, died Sunday. January 25 of a heart attack at Bethesda Naval Hospital. Marshall argued the famous Brown v. Board of Education case in 1954 and was later appointed to the Supreme Court. Marshall was viewed as a stalwart champion of civil rights. WASHINGTON President Clinton appeared to back down on his pledge to lift the ban on homosexual military service. Facing strong opposition in both Congress and in the military establishment. Clinton agreed to a six-month delay in his decision. Separately, a Federal District Court in California ruled that the ban is unconstitutional. WASHINGTON Facing many varied and conflicting proposals over the issue of healthcare. President Clinton appointed his wife. Hillary Rodham Clinton, as head of a health-care task force. Provided with an office in the White House's West Wing, Mrs. Clinton began work this week. BOSNIA Secretary of State Warren Christopher made statements this week indicating that a harsher stance may be taken toward the Serbian forces operating in the former Yugoslavia. The Joint Chiefs of Staff have been asked to draw up plans for possible military involvement President Clinton campaigned for a stronger military stance towards the Serbs. WASHINGTON President Clinton is poised to fulfill his campaign pledge of fiscal stimulus. Officials report that Clinton is nearing completion of a stimulus package that would include 15 to 20 billion dollars in new spending for infrastructure as well as business tax breaks.

Palestinians believe the way to go is with Islam." Further complicating the issue is the fact that Hamas competes for Palestinian support with the Palestinian Liberation Organization. The P.L.O. represented in negotiations with Israeli officials in the ongoing peace talks being held in both Washington and Geneva. This forces the P.L.O. to take a harsh stance in order not to lose face. Awaad mentioned that the current deportation crisis gave new life to Palestinian resistance, forcing the peace process to start all over. It is evident the Middle-East does not have an easy or quick conclusion to its problems.

Writer/Enviromental activist uses humor and personal narrative in reading by Nicole Mueller staff reporter Hope College welcomed the writer/environmental activist Rick Bass to the Maas Auditorium, on Wed., Jan. 27. Bass read two short stories, including "Schoteau" (from his collection of short stories The Watch and ' T h e History of Rodney." The reading was sponsored by Opus, Interdisciplinary Studies and

the Cultural Affairs Committee. Bass' appearance drew a large audience, bringing in people from Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids as well as the Holland area. The audience members responded well to Bass' work, especially to his gentle good humor which he displayed throughout the evening. "I liked the personal narrative voice he uses,"RasaHollender('93)

said. "It put the stories on a more intimate level." Bass writes with an earthy realism, giving a straightforward description of the nature around him. Yet his stories are magical stories of a world unfamiliar to city dwellers, a world in which men leap from trucks to ride on moose and people hang "dream hoops" of bird feathers o v e r their beds to c a p t u r e n i g h t m a r e s . " T h e History of

Born in Texas, Bass studied geology at Utah State University. For seven years he woiked as an oil and gas geologist in Mississippi, but he found himself "missing the

mountains." In 1987 he settled in the Yaak Valley region of northern Montana, recording the experience in his book. Winter: Notes From Montana.

Letters to the editor Dear Editor, This letter is written in response to the letter by Feler Bose and the student whose name was cut off (Jan. 27 issue). Since my first days at Hope College, 1 have evidenced a quickness of some Christians to judge the lives and actions of others. This has been frustrating in my own walk of faith and I have found their quickness unappealing (as many others have). 1 do not want you to think I am not a Christian, because I am. The difference between you and me is that I take the time to get to learn as much as I can about someone or something before I jump at their throat and condemn them (I don't really engage in throatjumping or condemnation...it , s a figure of speech!) My point is this: we all have planks in our eyes. If we didn't, we would not be human. Secondly, do not speak of someone/something you know little about. I am speaking of Craig Karges. As Tom Hardy pointed out, Craig Karges is one of the most respected people in campus entertainment. Craig and his wife Charlotte are the most Christian-valued people one could meet. I have a great deal of admiration for both of them. What Craig does is not witchcraft

and has nothing to do with "the dark side." He stated many times during his show that what he does is entertain. Craig relies on no evil to do his tricks. He relies on (1) the fact that the hand is quicker than the eye, and (2) causal inference. If you aren't satisfied with the fact that it was illusion, then come talk to me and I' 11 tell you how the tricks were done. You see, it wasn't Craig's mind at work... it was yours! The power of Craig's show lies not in what he does, but the message which was dictated at the end of the show: "Use your mind and do not take it for granted. You have the power to succeed." I'm sorry you missed it. The title Psychic/Magician obviously brought people to the event. (It certainly was not the name Craig Karges, at least for many of you.) It's an advertising gimmick. Craig advertises "Psychic" and people show up; Craig advertises "I'm good with probability"...SO WHAT! Needless to say, SAC (an acronym for Social Activities Committee... not Satan's Activities Committee) does an excellent job in providing you with top-notch campus entertainment. We bring you the stars before they make it BIG. Take Sinbad, for example. He was here not so long ago. How about ACME Vocals, who will soon be appearing

on a nationally syndicated FOX television series? And then there's Bertice Berry who will have her very own syndicated talk show on the FOX network. I can only encourage all of you to attend SAC events so you can say, "I saw them here first." In addressing the rich Christian heritage of this school, I feel the founding fathers would be very pleased with what they saw: a student organization committed to providing the students of Hope College with quality entertainment. That's it—quality entertainment! No ifs, ands or buts about it! As a Christian to a Christian, leave the judgement up to God. Furthermore, find out all you can about someone/something before you deliver criticism. If this letter has a tinge of bitterness, I apologize. I just get frustrated with people who have nothing better to do but sit back and criticize the hard work of others. If you don't like something, join the organization and work to change things. Remember that change starts from the inside out. So until you are ready to get involved... Respectively submitted, Brian L. Watkins ('93) Student Leader

^ t ^ T H S : The Alternative 89.9 FM has worked hard to create a number of interesting and worth-while specialty shows to put on the air, in addition to their formatted alternative oriented shows. For this they should be commended, because these are the shows that Hope students are interested in and will cause them to tune in. These shows including a good deal of originality as well. For example, WTHS has recruited Rob Harrison . who does a talk show that deals with current, relevant issues. He is now planning to locate a nazi to talk with about his/her beliefs on the air. In addition, WTHS plays everything from jazz to classic rock to Christian rock to R & B. And there is always the ever-pleasing alternative music mainstay that has given WTHS their name. But don't forget, they also broadcast the Hope basketball games and deliver news which they receive over the fax each morning from a newswire service. The station, employing more than 60 staffers has developed into a full-service radio station of entertainment and information that needs to be recognized. Students will remember that WTHS has been updating the station during the past couple of years to improve and better serve their listening community. To do this they have put together a solid program from 6 a.m. until 2 a.m. each day so that people at Hope and in the Holland area can tune in to their favorite shows. Also to their credit, they have done a phenomenal job recruiting local advertising support from companies with whom students are likely to do business. While this may not seem significant, ads bring business to the station and in essense save students money as it subsidizes the station's budget which is otherwise paid for by the student activities fee. WTHS has displayed a professionalism that has grown in integrity by leaps and bounds in recent years. At one time, the radio station may have been something to make fun of but any more it is recognized and respected for the excellence it exhibits. Corrections & Clarifications: • The last "letter to the editor" of last week's (Jan. 27) issue titled "Bose supported" was cut at the end leaving off the last word and name of the author. The last sentence should have read "I ask that SAC works for the good of the student, and to uphold the stated purpose of this school. Sincerely, Carl Schneider ('95)." The Anchor regrets this error and any inconveniences this may have caused. ^

"Did you know you could open this window and jump?" —Toby Gruppen ('93) A group of us were sitting around in a room at the Holiday Inn— Midtown during one of our first nights in Philadelphia. There was a lull in the conversation and then Toby Gruppen ('93) stated matterof-factly, "Did you know that you could open this window and jump?" At the moment, he was talking about the window in the hotel room and everyone thought it was kind of funny. But we soon realized that this statement meant more to us than it actually said. We came to realize that this statement was a theme for what the Philadelphia semester is all about. Through the opportunity to participate in this program, a window was opened to us. We took the plunge and jumped out of our safe little world at Hope College without knowing what lay ahead or what the outcome would be.

February 3,1993 Tha Anchor 3


A&E As I Was Saying Mellissa Endsley Encounters with Earth angels Fried Green Tomatoes was one of my very favorite movies ever. I think that it may be because of one of the lines in the movie that I remember vividly. The line that I am referring to was said by a lady in the movie named Idgy Threadgood. She said it to the son of her best friend Ruth in the movie. "You know, there are angels masquerading as people here on earth, and your mother is one of them," Threadgood said. It has stuck with me because I know it is the truth. There are angels on earth, and oftentimes they go through life with invisible wings. They often bring love, faith and joy to places and to people who will never know whom to thank for these gifts. For instance, recently I was getting my hair cut in Holland and I got talking with my stylist. We were having the basic "soyou're-a-freshman-here-at-HopeCollege-how-do-ya-like-it?" conversation and I began telling her that I was a writer for The Anchor staff and about how I wanted to be a journalist. I started to tell her about how I had to go here and there later that day and interview people for one of my stories. And then she told me what she was doing later that afternoon. "Oh, I have to go over to Holland Hospital," she told me. I asked her why and she told me that she goes over to the hospital one Saturday every month and does the hair of cancer patients. "A lot of them are losing their hair," she explained, "and so I try

to do my best to make them feel good about the way they look." We then talked about how looking nice was important to so many people's self esteem and how she was happy to help these people. "I know how self-conscious I feel on a simple bad hair day," my hairstylist went on." I can't even imagine having to deal with that every day, so I try to do what I can." I told her that I thought she was a very special and caring person right after she said that. This is also when I remembered the quote from Fried Green Tomatoes. I went on and told her that she should be proud of herself because there are a lot of people who can't do that sort of thing because they get depressed. "Oh, I did some volunteer work in a hospital before and I got a little depressed," she replied, "but doing hair is different. It's not even like work because I really enjoy it." These are the kind of people I think of when I think of angels on earth. These are the people I look up to; the people who know what they can do to help others. To me, an angel is someone who realizes what they can do to brighten the world and then does it without expectations. And so this one is for Donna, hair styling artist extraordinaire. May you fly high above the earth and far from the rain. May all people follow your lead and do what they do best for those who cannot do for themselves.

Super Sunday — oh what a day! Super Sunday—it's a day when men act like boys, a day when doctors, lawyers, carpenters, carpet-layers, engineers, ministers and accountants (yes, even these crazy species) drift back into their childhood and obnoxiously root for the team they think will wind up victorious in the biggest football game of the year—the Super Bowl. This Super Sunday had something for everyone. First, let me take you to the tennis ' venue Down Under, the Australian Open. As the clock struck midnight and Super Sunday was officially here, American tennis sensation Jim Courier was destroying Stefan Edberg in the finals of the first leg of the Grand Slam (6-2,6-1,2-6,7-5). Excited yet? I thought you might be. To the chagrin of many girlfriends and wives throughout this great land of ours, the excitement had only just begun. As nighttime turned to daytime and breakfast soon gave way to lunch, it was time for more sports—this time basketball. While the Los Angeles Lakers were defeating the Boston Celtics on NBC in one of the greatest rivalries of all time, Michigan was battling Iowa in a key Big Ten match-up on CBS. It was the first game at CarverHawkeye Arena since the Chris Street tragedy. In this game I didn't really care who won. If Michigan won, great! I love the Wolverines. But I actually found myself rooting for Iowa. (Iowa did indeed defeat Michigan 8880 on this Sunday afternoon.) As the final horn sounded and I saw the Iowa players celebrating with the Street family, I had goosebumps running up and down my spine. What a bittersweet feeling the victory must have been for the state of Iowa. My thoughts and prayers are still with you guys. As the game ended and I began flipping through the channels I stopped the remote on some golf on ABC, the Phoenix Open. Next was the Seniors Skins game. And you didn't think it could get any more exciting, did you? Next, I came across some Super Bowl pregame programming. Dennis Byrd (the New York Jet who was paralyzed a little over ten weeks ago) was being interviewed. This was Byrd's first one-on-one interview since the accident. What Dennis Byrd said in this short little interview was a real eye-opener. Among other things, he said this: "It is Jesus Christ who gets me through my days

and nights...he just keeps me going." Well said, Dennis. Before I knew it, it was 5 p.m.—just one hour and 18 minutes until the opening kickoff. At this stage I had two options. I could (a) continue to vegetate in front of the television set watching more pregame stuff, or (b) get some sustenance so I could be rejuvenated for the opening kickoff. Coerced, I selected option (b) and went out for dinner with two of my housemates. Scarfing down the salad, chicken wings and chocolate mousse (We ate at Ponderosa; can't you tell?) we ^ made it back to our cottage with about two minutes left in the first quarter—the Cowboys were leading by the score of 14-7. Within the next five minutes I saw two Michael Jordan commercials, a Shaq commercial (Reebok), a Miller Genuine Draft commercial, a Lay's Potato Chip commercial and a Lee Jeans commercial. For those of you who may be interested, a 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl costs a cool $850,000 (according to USA Today)—a pretty hefty sum, wouldn't you say? With the Cowboys leading 3110 late in the fourth quarter, the only suspense that remained was who was going to win the Bud Bowl. Would it be Budweiser or Bud Light? Unfortunately, not even that game proved to be exciting. Budweiser was leading 35-7 after three quarters. This Super Sunday truly was a remarkable day. It was a day in which the Dallas Cowboys reaped their reward resulting from hard work and patience. It was a day in which Jim Courier kept strong his hold on the #1 tennis ranking. It was a day the state of Iowa and all of basketball will not soon forget. Well, another Super Sunday has come and gone. But before ending this article I would just like to take a moment arid say "thanks" to Bob Costas for his awesome work on NFL Live. I will never forget how, upon coming home from church every Sunday morning, I would be able to tune into NBC's NFL Live and be able to watch and listen to him sing the accolades of the best football team the NFL has ever seen—the Pittsburgh Steelers. I know, the Cowboys are the champs this year, but just remember...the Steelers have four rings! PS: In case you care: the Cowboys beat the Bills 52-17 and Budweiser beat Bud Light 35-31.

Dutchmen fall at Calvin by Todd P. Jungling sports editor Here'saquestion to ponder: What sporting event would preempt NBC's Seinfeld in prime time on a Wednesday evening? The United States Tennis Open? Probably not. The Master's Golf Championship? I doubt it. Hope versus Calvin in Division III College basketball? You got it! Though neither team was undefeated in conference play going into Wednesday night's contest at Knollcrest Fieldhouse, on the campus of Calvin College, the anticipation and excitement still spoke volumes for this Division III rivalry. Hope stayedclose throughout the game, but the Calvin Knights proved to be too strong for too long. Riding the hot hand of senior center Steve Honderd (28 points), Calvin was able to defeat the Flying Dutchmen by the score of 89-72. Building a 63-50 lead early in the second half, it looked as if the Knights were going to seal the game away. But Hope had other ideas. Brad Duistermars ('95) responded with a three-pointer from the baseline that cut the lead to 10. Then Steve Hendrickson ('93) went coast to coast with a driving lay-up that cut the lead to eight. Then after four consecutive points by Calvin, Pete Baer ('95) was hammered by Honderd as he went up for a lay-up—but the refs whistled the foul on someone else— yeah right! (That would have been and should have been four fouls on Honderd.) Hope was able to put further dents into the lead, cutting it to six points with a little over six minutes to go in the game. The scoreboard showed Calvin on top at this point, 67-61. However, Calvin was able to

Lady Dutch beaten at buzzer by Todd P. Jungling sports editor Guten Nacht. Bon Soir. Buenos noches. Whether i t ' s German, French or Spanish the translation is the same: Good night—or should I say Good Knight—or perhaps after witnessing what transpired in the final seconds last Tuesday night, at the Holland Civic Center, "Good night Irene" seems more appropriate. Granted, the Calvin Lady Knights were good...but they were also lucky. With the game knotted at 66, and with time expiring, Calvin's Cheryl Essenburg made a desperation threepointer at the buzzer that gave the Knights a 69-66 victory over the Hope College Lady Dutch last Tuesday night at the Holland Civic Center. Sound familiar? It's all too familiar for Hope fans. Whether it's the men or the women, Calvin al-

ways seems to hit a buzzer-beater. The game was tied 66 to 66...that was problem right there—just too many sixes. And then look at the nine in 69. It's just a six turned upside down. Funny how that works, isn't it? At the outset of the game it looked as if the Lady Knights were going to lambaste the Lady Dutch. Utilizing their height and strength to their advantage, Calvin was able to race to a 13 point lead midway through the first half. Hope was able to manage only three points during the first eight minutes of the game. But then Hope got things clicking. Trailing by the score of 32-28 at half-time, the Lady Dutch reeled off the first 12 points to open the second half, six of which came on threepointers by Katie Kowalczyk ('93). The lead changed hands several times late in the second half. Calvin held a 63-58 advantage with about four minutes left in the game. Vonda Evers ('95) then converted two free

throws. Then Jamie Crooks ('93) scored a deuce. The Calvin lead was sliced and diced to 63-62! After a Calvin charity throw. Crooks scored two more. The game was tied at 64. After two successful Calvin free throws, Kristin Carlson ('95) scored on a gorgeous interior pass from Crooks. Once again the score was tied—66 to 66. What transpired next is not worth repeating. Let's just say that Calvin lucked yet another one out. The Lady Dutch played well. In fact, they played well enough to win. The numbers (sixes) just weren't cooperating. Notebook: Last Saturday the Lady Dutch dropped to 2-5 in the MIAA, losing to the defending national champion Alma Scots (6-1) by the score of 72-56. For the third time this year, Katie Kowalczyk tied a Hope record with five three-pointers. She finished with 17 points in all.

Hoping to understand why elderly fall, researchers at Hope College are developing experiments that explore the problem from an engineering perspective. The work began this fall in the c o l l e g e ' s new biomechanics research laboratory, the only one of its kind in western Michigan, and has received support through a threeyear, $166,635 grant from The Whitaker Foundation of Mechanicsburg, Pa. The grant is providing equipment, financing other expenses, and supporting faculty and student researchers. The Whitaker Foundation is a private foundation with grant programs that primarily support biomedical engineering. Although the project has only recently started, director Carl Luchies hopes the research will someday help reduce fall-related injuries among older adults. If we can understand the causes of falls among the elderly, then elderly who are at risk of falling can be identified and therapies can be introduced to reduce that risk before they ever fall," said Luchies, an assistant professor of engineering. He also noted that the human equation is centrally important to the mathematically-based effort. ' T h e fact that our work will help humankind really means a lot," he said. "If we can prevent a few people from getting hurt—having to go through the pain and agony of a hip fracture, for example—that would be the biggest payoff that we could receive. Eventually, the information can be used to create mathematical models that can apply to a variety of situations and disciplines, ranging from falls among the elderly, to sports medicine, to the design of products with a human interface, ^ / T h e modeling technique extends

to the study of human motion the same approaches currently used in evaluating inanimate objects, according to James van Putten Jr., professor of physics. Almost all systems are computer modelled—mathematically modelled. And there's only one prototype," van Putten said. "We're trying to make measurements that enable us to develop a predictive theory about how the human body will function. The research, he noted, is breaking new ground, ll has not been done yet in terms of understanding the human body," van Putten said. "Very little data is currently available that can be used for developing a model. According to the 1984 publication ' T h e Injury Fact Book," each year nearly one third of all community dwelling persons age 75 or older fall, and more than five percent of those who fall experience fractures. In addition, people age 65 or older sustain 84 percent of all hip fractures. Such fractures, which occur mainly as a consequence of a fall, result in the largest number of hospital admissions of all injuries. According to Luchies, although age does cause bone weakness, studies have also found that a young person's fall generates more than enough energy to break bones—10 times more than would be sufficient—yet such breaks are less common. The Hope study is testing younger and older adults, and will compare their responses to controlled situations that could lead to imbalance or a fall. To assure that the process yields no actual injuries, restraining harnesses and other precautions guard the participants' physical well-being. —Hope College news service

President Van Wylen, Chairman Eimicke, members of the Board of Trustees, faculty colleagues, members of the graduating class, your parents, relatives, and friends, and distinguished guests: I want to thank you, the members of the graduating class, who through your representatives selected me to be your commencement speaker. Thanks very much for this honor. 1 had planned a four-hour speech, with adiscussion following, wherein I would have distinguished fortyseven senses in which the term, "life," might be said to be 'affirmed' according to the rules of ordinary language, these in turn to be rejected in favor of a private language theory. Sensing the immediate appeal this topic would have for you seniors, not to mention your parents and relatives, I almost went through with it. But then I thought of my colleagues, fated together with me to endure yearly commencement addresses, engaged with me in a common suffering. Compassion for them constrains me to deliver what they most yearn for: a br/ef address. Now that I have made that promise, take comfort as I begin. As you seniors would know, college students and alumni have a way of saying, "I learned a lot more in dormitory discussions and in relationships with my friends than I did in the classroom." I certainly hope this is true for you. My faculty colleagues and I, having evaluated your academic work for four years, certainly hope that you have learned more than this evidence provides! And, after all, hew good, really, is even a grade of A? But what have you learned outside of class? Have you gained a deeper knowledge of yourself and other people? Have you been inspired to become someone you have not yet succeeded in being? Have you found yourself to enabled to love others in mutual openness and acceptance? Have you developed a passion for anything? Do you really want to

be a good corporate manager? Do you have a love for the people and culture of a different country and civilization? Do you have a passion for the Christian mission? Has your intellectual intensity become focused in the sciences? Do you want to help heal the sick? Do you have a love to educate children, intellectually and emotionally? Do you have a vision of the heights and depths of human existence which craves expression in the arts? In philosophy? In theology? If this has been your learning, you have learned well. But what does it take to shape, inform, and inspire us? It is often said that a liberal arts college affords its students a "wellrounded" education. I certainly hope this has not been your experience. To some extent, this may have happened to you. To have spent such a great deal of lime sitting in classes may have resulted in a certain anatomical roundness. A "wellrounded" education may inform you, but it is unlikely to give you style or shape (with the one exception just named), and it certainly will not inspire you. In large measure, a college curriculum consists of an assortment of game plans, complete with rules, penalties, and rewards. We become more or less skilled in these games once we become initiated into them. These games have names: chemistry, philosophy, mathematics, history, theology. They are called "disciplines." To play them well is to become certified as a team player. But to be nothing more than a team player is ultimately to become a traditionalist. In playing the game, one runs the risk of not knowing— or of forgetting—what the game is about or what it isfor. It is only when we are personally addressed, grasped in the course of our playing and doing that we are inspired to creative height and depth and make the playing our own. Thus only can we go beyond traditional and conventional modes of thought.

taking them up into new modes of artistic, scientific and philosophic activity. To do this is to affirm life beyond the settled patterns of though and culture. But what power is it that makes possible all these things? How can it be that we are drawn out of our past to know ourselves more fully? By what power do we come to accept ourselves and unite with others in openness and love? By what power is truth revealed and beings known? By what power do words occasion poetic vision? By what power do facts constitute evidence? By what power is perfection seen in geometric symmetry? By what power does beauty shine forth in sound and shape and graceful motion? By what power is that divine "giving" which theologians call "grace" conveyed in the motion of a dance or in the sound of a musical phrase? By what power do we gain the courage to affirm life in the face of anxiety, guilt, meaningless, and despair? Surely such a power is wonderful: and what is more wonderful still is that this power is evident to us in everyday life. For the anxious dfl take courage, we are accepted, there is a perfection symmetry, there is grace in sound and in motion, in love and in the grace of truth in knowledge. In our limitations and in our anxiety these presences are sometimes hidden from us. But to acknowledge them in their appearing is, wittingly or unwittingly, to acknowledge the power of God, whereby our being is sustained and created anew. It is the power to affirm life in all its dimensions. Members of the graduating class: in the joyous splendor of this occasion, my colleagues and I express to you our fondest affection. Affirm life in all that you are, and through all the diverse talents and gifts which have been given to you. May you have the courage of faith, in hope, with love.

At times Bowman brought not only himself to tears, but the whole audience as well. As a result of his witty and energetic style he managed to cause such laughter that people left with aching sides. Bowman actively engaged the audience throughout his performance. At one point he spoke about his sensitivity as a male. He asked one student, on a scale of one to five, how sensitive he gauged himself. The student, after some deliberation, answered "3.5." After hearing this Bowman went into the audience for a hug from the student. After the affectionate moment, he jestingly told everyone he was gay. Bowman's humorous nature was waimly welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed.
