Delta Phi obtains cottage The Delta Phi Sorority is to be provided with a sorority house, as was revealed in a Campus Life Board meeting on Tuesday. The Board also discussed fraternity quotas and stricter enforcement of alcohol rules on campus. The Delta Phi's have requested Crispell Cottage, in close proximity to the fraternity complex, but no decision has been made as to whether they would be awarded that particular cottage. However, as stated bv Bruce Johnston, Assistant Dean of Students, 4 i don't think that there is any question that they will be given a cottage." The sorority's application, along with the present housing status of the various fraternities will be reviewed and acted upon before spring break. These applications are being reviewed in terms of the number of active members and the housing capacity of the

building. Current college policy requires that active members of a fraternity or sorority make up at least 80% of the occupants of the building. Also required are the signatures of the independents making up the remaining 20% to insure that they are voluntarily living in that situation. Having fallen short of the 80% mark, a fraternity or sorority may then appeal to the Campus Life Board. However, "They have to come pretty close to the 80% mark," says Robert Reinking, chairman of the board. Central to the Board's consideration of such an appeal would be the sincerity of the organization's efforts to fill the building. Evidently, the Delta Phi's have sufficient membership to enable them to merit a cottage, and reports from the fraternities show a general increase in the number of rushees over last year.

Those rushees that go on to become pledges will be taken into consideration in the Board's housing review. Discussing enforcement of campus alcohol rules, recent changes now indicate that first-time offenders will no longer be issued a warning. New enforcement policy dictates that they be brought before the Judiciary Board or dealt with by the Dean of Students office. The offending student is given the choice between these two measures. This change has been necessitated by the recent change in state law barring the sale of alcohol to persons under 21. The new policy makes enforcement of rules concerning alcohol consistent with the enforcement of other violations of the law. Students 21 or over will not be exempt from this policy and second-time offenders will be dealt with by the Judiciary Board.

Vehicles sought in murder case Two vehicles are now being sought in connection with last Wednesday's abduction and slaying of 23-year-old, Hope senior Janet M. Chandler. State police, however, have refused to give a description of the vehicles they are seeking. They did report, though, that a four wheel vehicle was seen in the vicinity of the Blue Mill Inn at the time of Ms. Chandler's apparent abduction.

FEBRUARY 8, 1979

SAC presents Josh White Saturday at 8 p.m. SAC is presenting Josh White in concert at the DeWitt Main Theater. White is a performer who combines American folk, blues, rock, and gospel music, and has been referred to by critics as including "all that is good in variety." Josh White started his performance history at age four, at the side of his father. Josh White Sr., an innovator in American folk and original adaptor and performer o f 4 'The House of the Rising Sun." Since the time Josh has performed on Broadway, off-Broadway, and on some of television's major performance shows, including the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. After outstanding turnouts at last semester's SAC-sponsored movies, a larger portion of Student Activities Fees will be spent on high quality movies this semester. Maria Vaselopulos of SAC stated that with drinking now illegal for much of the campus population, students will have to be provided with alternative weekend activities.

The expected increase in attendance will partially offset the higher rental fees. Tomorrow, "A Touch of Class" will be shown in Winants Auditorium at 7 and 10 p.m. There will also be a special midnight showing for half the regular $1 price. These late night bargain showings have been nearly sold out each time, and will become a permanent feature of SAC-sponsored movies. SAC will also increase the number of coffee houses and concerts to nearly one a week by the end of the semester. Vaselopulos also reported that SAC has received a great deal of overwhelmingly positive feedback on its dance. Winter Fantasia. Many students were amazed at how well having the dance in DeWitt worked. In the past, the ballroom has proved to be extremely stuffy during dances. Through the use of three separate groups, one on each floor, the traffic in any one area was kept below the point where the ventilation system ceases to be adequate.


Upon conclusion of the recitation, there was a moment of silent prayer and meditation. Afterwards, the chaplain prayed for blessings upon Ms. Chandler's family and her friends. Following the prayer, Joyce Morrison, chairman of the voice de-

partment, spoke a few words about Ms. Chandler who was a vocal music major. "Janet had a most beautiful and promising voice. 1 hope she has found deep and abiding peace." Morrison then sang "For All the Saints" and dedicated it to her memory. Ms. Chandler was abducted last Wednesday at about 2 a.m. in a $502.36 robbery of the Blue Mill Inn along the U.S. 31 bypass near 16th Street where she worked as a night clerk. Her naked body was found nearly 24hours later near South Haven by a snowplow driver in a wooded area of the expressway where it was dumped beneath a fir tree. According to Morrison, friends interested in making a monetary contribution in lieu of flowers in memory of Ms. Chandler may do so by sending their donation in care of the Calvary Baptist Church Student Fund of Muskegon.

Seminars highlight Homecoming The second annual Winter Homecoming will be held Saturday, Feb. 10 with an emphasis on academic seminars, use of the college's new health and physical center and an M1AA basketball game. The idea of an on-campus event to escape the winter doldrums Avas initiated by the Hope alumni office last year. The College continues to sponsor its fall homecoming program around a home football game. "Winter homecoming is an ideal event for those with cabin fever," noted Mary Kempker, assistant director of college relations for alumni affairs. "This is an activity for all friends of Hope, not just alumni," she stressed. "We invite parents of students, friends from congregations of area Reformed Churches and community residents to participate." Activities will begin at 11 a.m. with a series of academic seminars followed at 1 p.m. by a luncheon for all attendees.

Presentations will include: "The Jordan Dig," an in-depth look at a recent summer exploration in Jordan by biology professor Paul Van Faasen and Western Theological Seminary faculty member Robert Coughenour; "Child Development," a look at the world of children through the eyes of psychology professor Jane Dickie; "Metal Poisoning," a report on a scientific breakthrough in the treatment of metal poisoning by professors Jack Schubert and S. Krogh Derr; and "The Fine Arts," a performance of dance numbers by student artists and presentation by physical education faculty member Maxine DeBruyn. Retiring English professor Henry ten Hoor will present a seminar entitled "Reflections" which will focus on his 30 years of teaching literature. "To set the record straight, if it needs straightening, I plan a few informal, personal comments on what, after 30 years, is a small residue of insight and wisdom that may be derived from a prolonged contact with

literature, including a remark or two on the comforts of tragedy and the paradoxical usefulness of the absurd," said ten Hoor. Persons interested in attending the academic seminars should contact the Hope alumni office for room locations and other information. The Dow Center will be open for use through Feb. 10. The entire center will be available for use although reservations are necessary for tennis and racquetball. The Flying Dutchmen will host defending MIAA co-champion Albion College in basketball at the Holland Civic Center at 3 p.m. Albion finished third in the nation among NCAA Division III basketball teams last year, but lost twice to Hope. The Hope gymnastics club will perform at halftime. The college's jazz band will present a concert after the game while free hot chocolate and donuts are served. A buffet dinner will be served in Phelps Hall from 5 to 7 p.m.

Students to benefit from aid change

Hope students will benefit from several changes in financial aid programs on both the federal and state levels. The recent passage of the Middle Income Act will increase the amount of Federal aid available to Hope and other college students, while the petition drive against the Michigan differential grant program has failed. the Schubert Trio in E Major, opus Bruce Himebaugh, director of fi100—will be presented. nancial aid, estimates that these recent The Early Music Ensemble will give changes will add a substantial amount a recital on Tuesday, Feb. 13 at 8 p.m. of money for his office to use in preparin Wichers Auditorium.

' The music staff of Hope will also offer a program. Sunday at 4 p.m. in Wichers the music department faculty will give the third program of the 1978-1979 series of cnamber recitals. A varied program—the baroque Sonata in E minor for Oboe and Continuo by Telemann; Sonata in D minor, opus 108, a romantic work by Brahms; a contemporary work, Cantata Celladon, by William Croft; and

In other developments, it was confirmed Monday by police that Ms. Chandler "appeared to be strangled" and that during the time she was held, she was "bound with wide tape." However, only part of the autopsy has been released and police refuse to explain their reasoning. They are also declining to answer any questions relating to whether Ms. Chandler was sexually molested. None of Ms. Chandler's clothes have

yet been located. However, her purse was found in her Briarwood apartment. Funeral services for the coed were held Monday afternoon in Muskegon— four days after her tragic death. Chaplain Peter Semeyn, Dean of Students, Michael Gerrie, and President Gordon Van Wylen represented the college. At a memorial service held in the Chapel during Sunday morning worship, Chaplain Semeyn recited words written by Ms. Chandler before coming to Hope in which she stated, "God has a purpose for my life and I hope to discover it at Hope College. Where God leads, I will follow."

Opportunity Grant program. The impact of this change on college financial aid programs is unpredictable. Himebaugh said the basic change in the BEOG program is in income eligibility. The ceiling has been raised so many "middle class" students qualify for BEOG monies. Himebaugh estimates that the amount that Hope students receive from the BEOG program will jump from this year's fcurrent $300,000 total to about $800,000 next school year. He further projects an increase in the number of BEOG program students to approximately three times this year's number. The MDG awards $500 regardless of financial need, to all private school freshmen, and in this coming school year, all sophomores. Himebaugh said that % of last year's freshmen class needed the money, while Va didn't. He said that the amount of money the students received last year was about $250,000. He said that figure should double next year. ' Himebaugh is very enthusiastic about next year. And because the federal government requires varification of the financial need of all federal aid

recipients, Himebaugh predicts his work load will increase dramatically. He welcomes the increase in woric, though, because he feels that anyone who wants to attend Hope should be able to regardless of financial status. Himebaugh said that the difference between public and private schools shouldn't increase. He said that many students look at Hope's price, and automatically eliminate it from their lists. He said that many students don't figure on financial aid to help them with the costs. Himebaugh stressed the March 15 deadline for filing your Family Financial Aid form. Although nobody is refused aid if they file late, it becomes more difficult to form a financial aid package when the form is filed later. He said that all students should fill out a FFA because of the changes in federal and state aid. Students from families which gross up to $30,000 annually might qualify for a BEOG, or any of many other financial aid programs. Himebaugh said that many students are qualified for aid, and aren't receiving it because they don't bother to apply.

Students evaluate profs WASHINGTON: Transportation Secretary Brock Adams announced last Wednesday that he has suggested to Congress that they cut back Amtrak service and make.mns only in high population areas, with fewer long distance runs. The reason for this cut back is that Amtrak is not covering its costs in certain parts of the U .S. According to Adams the plan would eliminate many routes. Some of the routes to be kept in operation include three New York-Florida trains, two New YorkChicago trains, two New YorkChicago-New Orleans trains. Also in the West there will be a Seattle-Los Angeles route and routes from Chicago and New Orleans to the West Coast. In the middle of the country there will be a route from Chicago through Kansas City, Denver and Ogden, Utah, where it would split with sections going to Los Angeles and San Francisco. WASHINGTON: In the eyes of Navy Secretary W. Graham Claytor Jr., "We've pretty well exhausted all the alternatives there are in the country." Claytor. testified in front of the Senate Committee studying the proposal to construct a controversial system for communications with submerged submarines in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. President Carter's defense budget has appropriated $13.5 million to keep the program alive. The system known as ELF, calls for a massive network of underground cables in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Claytor declared that he put the project among the very highest priorities of "our whole hierarchy". . SALISBURY, RHODESIA: White voters have approved transfer of power

to the nation's black majority. Last Wednesday, Rhodesia's white voting population voted to approve a new constitution that when it takes effect April 20 will have both blacks and whites voting together for the first time to elect the first Rhodesian ParIiament with a black majority. "I believe we have strengthened our position. There was nothing half-hearted about this vote." said Prime Minister Ian Smith. Smith is hoping this vote will prove to the U.S. and Britain that his country is working toward a black majority and that they would lift their trade embargos against Rhodesia. Callstus Dingiswayo Nadlouw, Patriotic Front, calls the constitution only an illusion of black majority,' 'There's no doubt the guerrillas will take power through force of arms." TEHRAN, IRAN: Ayatullah Ruhollah Khomeini arrived home Thursday, Feb. 1, to a wildly enthusiastic crowd and begged "the Almighty to cut the hands of foreigners.'' Khomeini declared that in order to continue his revolution U.S. influence must be expelled from Iran. Tuesday, Jan. 30, the US Embassy had already ordered all American dependents to leave Iran as soon as possible. According to Khomeini, he has named people to an Islamic Cabinate but would not give any names to the press, for the Shah has declared that anyone on Khomeini's council will be jailed. GRAND RAPIDS, MI: The cur rent issue of Fortune magazine has listed two local businessmen, Richard DeVos and Jay VanAndel, as being near the top of the listing of the nation's wealthiest "private rich." The busi-

ness magazine's Feb. 12 issue reported that the two founders of Amway Corporation, located in Ada, have each built personal fortunes of between $300 and $500 million as owners of the privately-held company. Amway was founded in 1959 and now reports sales of more than $300 million a year. The company sells soap and a variety of other household products. The company also has diversified recently through investments in real estate and the purchase of the Mutual Broadcastiing n g Network. PLEASANTON, CALIFORNIA: Thursday, Feb. 1, Patricia Hearst became a free woman. Hearst, who President Carter has cut short a seven-year jail sentence for bank robbery, was met by attorney George Martines and her fiance at the prison. She will remain under Justice Department supervision for one year—barred from possessing weapons, associating with known criminals or leaving the country without the attorney general's approval. MOSCOW: The Soviet Union has accused Chinese Vice Premier Teng Hsiao-ping of "impudently lecturing the Carter administration" through his outspoken opposition to a new U.S.Soviet strategic arms treaty. Teng is now on an official visit to the United States. "We hold the view that the danger of war comes from the Soviet Union", the Chinese leader told a group of American reporters. The new strategic arms pact, now in the final stages of negotiation, would limit the number of nuclear missiles and bombers the United States and Soviet Union could deploy.

All students will be required to fill out teacher evaluation forms, if a proposal by a Student Congress task force is implemented. The evaluations will be similar to the forms distributed by the instructors to their classes at the end of the semester. The forms presendy used are mainly for the personal use of the instructor. The new forms would be used by the college's Status Committee, which grants or denies tenure to instructors. According to task force chairman Dave Leenhouts, the Status Committee now lacks student input, and the committee would like to have a reliable student opinion on any instmctors up for tenure. In early discissions of the proposal, the committee discussed one possible route of implementing such a proposal:


each year forms would be sent to all students to be filled out, asking thenopinion of each of their instructors during that year. The forms would then be returned during the registration period. It was noted that this would set up a file of student opinions over the years, which would chart the professor's progress or point out any weaknesses. It was also pointed out that this procedure would require a bulk of paperwork to be processed. It was reported that committee chairman Dave Leenhouts would discuss the matter with Provost David Marker before any decision was made. Any discussion concerning what type of questions should appear in the poll was delayed until the next committee meeting.

Women raise funds Among the most important organizations that help to keep Hope in healthy financial operation is the Alumni Association. Another organization, the Women's League of Hope College, has also contributed largely toward the improvement of the Hope community. The Women's League originated as the vision of Mrs. Edith WaJvoord in 1925. Active fund-raising, however, did not commence until about 1954. What makes this particular organization unique is that the women who participate are not Hope alumni. In other words, it provides women with a

genuine concern for Hope to get involved even though they did not attend. The primary function of the Women's League is to raise money for the furnishing of the residence halls. Its overall objective is, as Mr. Vernon J. Schipper, associate director of college relations, put it: "to better the students' life on campus." With this philosophy in mind, the Women's League of Hope College, to date, has donated half a million dollars to do exactly that over a span of 25 years. Already $100,000 have gone toward the renovation of Van Vleck Hall, a project begun in 1976. How does the League work? The organization is affiliated with the Reformed Church and has various chapters in various Midwestern cities. Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois are the strongest bases of League activity. Representatives are chosen from the whales as well. "Humpback whales This song communication is currently different Reformed churches.

Hoist stimulates student interest in whales Ann Marie Rezelman Tim Hoist, assistant professor of geology, likes whales. Teaching an oceanography class has enabled him to share the interest he has in these huge creatures with others. "I have always been fascinated by their size," Hoist explains. "Can you imagine an animal 100 ft. long that can move gracefully and leave skindivers alone?" After seeing National Geographic specials on television and reading books about whales he decided to get involved by becoming a member of the "Greenpeace" organization, which actively tried to fight commercial whaling. Countries like Russia and Japan use the whale as a source of raw material for food, cosmetics, and oil. Ecology groups such as "Greenpeace" argue that alternative sources are available.


Letter writing and on-sea protests have been effective in preventing the deaths of 200 whales. However, "only 3-4% of some species of the whale population remains," cautions Hoist. "Anyone who knows bio-population dynamics knows what this says for the future of the whales." As "Greenpeace" puts it, "For years, scientists have warned that unless whaling is stopped many species will become extinct. The United Nations has called for a ten-year moratorium and yet the whales continue to die at the hands of a few . . . nations." "The blue whale is the largest animal to inhabit the earth. These mammals are even bigger than the dinosaurs," says Hoist. "It would be tragic if we exterminated them. We could learn a lot from the whales." Hoist tells his class about other kinds of

Van Heest speaks out

Enrollment figures New chaplain interviewed appear to be promising

Interviewed by Nancy Torresen

Q. As senior chaplain at Hope, what do you expect to accomplish? Have you formed any ideas on any significant changes that you'd like to see? A. No, I'm not going to say any of my changes yet. I just think that at this point I'm going to just spend the best part and the most time in meeting students to find out what their expecta-

Kraft explains inconvenience Dear Dow Center Users: To those of you inconvenienced by the closing of the gym floor and racquetball courts Tuesday evening from 7 - 9 p . m . , a brief word of explanation. W e are first and foremost committed to serving the Hope College faculty, staff, and students. We have also sold 200 community memberships and are seeking to integrate activities for these people into the daily schedule. On occasion we have rented out various portions of the facility to groups.

Every effort will be made to keep these rentals to times where the inconvenience to the college family will be minimal. When this does occur, we will inform you in advance through the Daily Bulletin and signs posted in the Dow Center. If you have any suggestions for us as we seek to provide opportunities for physical activity to the Hope family and the Holland community, don't hesitate to give me a call.

h ' ?? May Day comments sought H|Hp'


As members of the Intramural Committee we wish to organize recreational activities for May Day, appealing to the majority of the student body. Our objective is to provide opportunities which will encourage and promote campus participation. HOW IT WAS: During the 1920's and 3 0 ' s an " A l l College D a y " was set aside in order for the entire student body to clean up the campus. The idea here was to improve the appearance of campus as well as work up an appetite for the evening banquet, which was the focal point of the day. May Day was first instituted in 1937 by Miss Elizabeth Lichty, Dean of Women. Very few men participated in the days' activities. As the years progressed and May Day was accepted as an annual affair, the festivities grew to include men and women's sport events. It soon became tradition to

have an inter-fraternity track meet, although, one year it was replaced by a faculty-student Softball game. Currently, the only organized sport event for women, is the intramural championship Softball game. At one time, there was an inter-class contest of sport events. HOW ITIS: It is evident that the number of participants in proportion to the student body, has become smaller through the years. WHAT'S THE POINT? We will be conducting a survey in the cafeteria which allows everyone the opportunity to offer comments and suggestions. The committee is conducting this survey in order to organize activities meeting the wishes of our student body. T H E I N T R A M U R A L COMMITTEE

Reid Thurston "My concern is to draw attention to one of the great tragedies of contemporary Christendom In a single word, this tragedy is polarization, ,, thus John Stott begins his book Balanced Christianity. 1 heartily agree with him. Instead of moderation we tend to go all to one extreme or the other. I believe there is a call to live balanced lives. This week's column will address one area that seems to be often out of balance on college campuses: avoiding the extremes of a faith that is either all heart or all mind. A faith based totally on emotions lacks roots. When I first became a Christian, around the time of the "Jesus Freaks," what I refer to as my faith was just a series of emotional highs. Of course this type of faith provided me with no real substance, knowledge or growth. I needed to love

God with my mind as well as my heart. There is another picture of a mindless faith. It's amazing that people, even some very learned people, can assert to one set of beliefs on Sunday, and have those beliefs totally unintegrated with the rest of their lives—like the man who says, 4 'I'm a Christian outside the classroom, but inside I'm a teacher." People can accept Jesus in their hearts but never go on to think about their faith to try to make it reasonable to them, or let it effect their attitudes or conversations. Equally as ineffective is a faith centered totally in the mind. This is a big temptation for me in religion and philosophy classes. I can find myself involved in deep theological discourses to the point of living a head faith with the rest of my being cut off. I forget to be obedient and to enjoy the

simple aspects of God. We need to strive to make our faith rational, yet we cannot make rationality supreme. If we subject everything to the laws of rationality, then reason becomes our god. To be effective our faith cannot be based totally in our heads, or totally in our heart. Instead, I believe we are called to be balanced people. Jesus said the foremost commandment is "you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. "(Mark 12:30). Our relationship with God needs to permeate every aspect of our lives. God is God of our whole being, therefore emotions are valid and not to be rejected, and we are called to serve Him using the fullness of our intelligence. By the Grace of God let us avoid polarization and walk with balance.


Breathe deeply, please WASHINGTON—The Environmental Protection Agency relaxed the nation's smog standards last month by 50 percent because it believes the average American can breathe twice as much smog as was previously thought, without falling down on the sidewalk. As soon as the news was announced I went over to see a friend at EPA, named Harbinger. 4 'How do you feel about relaxing the nation's smog standards?" I asked. "Very relaxed," he admitted. "We've been able to thicken the air with pollutants without doing any damage to the human body, which during an inflationary period could save this country billions of dollars." "How have you been able to do this?" "Instead of demanding a standard of .08 per million, we will now allow . 12.1 know it doesn't sound like much on paper, but it really has a lot of significance for the little guy who produces automobiles and burns coal to produce electricity." "How do you know it's safe?" "Oh, it's safe for autos and electric• ity. They can take twice as much pollution as that." "I wasn't talking about autos and industry. 1 was talking about people. If you up the permissible amount of pollution, aren't you endangering the lungs and life of the average person?" "I believe you're getting into a sensitive area. You're now talking about someone's health." "I guess that is the area I was talking about." Harbinger continued, "EPA can do just so much to keep a person alive. When we set certain anti-pollution standards we expect Americans to live up to them. If they're going to get sick even after we've announced that these standards are perfectly safe, it's their fault not ours. We publicize these figures as much as possible and people should keep up with any changes we make in them.

climbed aboard the Metro for their first day 44on the job." After having followed their fearless leader, "Papa Doc" Jack Holmes, all over the city, like a brood of ducklings following their mother for a Jul! eight days, the interns were finally set free in the Washington labyrinth. The transformation from student to bureaucrat or office worker proved to be relatively easy. The first step was to get acquainted with co-workers and work surroundings. Since an intern naturally enters an organization at the bottom o f the bottom, no regular employee was afraid to make his or her true feelings known. Responses to the new interns were, for the most part, congenial. But, they ranged the whole spectrum from a jo-

vial 44GIad to have you aboard," to a grumbled 4 4Just stay out of my way and you'll be all right." After meeting their new bosses, the "temps" were introduced to their new jobs. Some of the vital assignments given the new interns included stuffing envelopes, opening letters, and running for coffee. Not all tasks were so mundane, though. Some interns wrote radio spots, took notes on hearings, or, through a memo, briefed their Senator or Congressman on an important district issue. Some went to parties, wandered around die Capitol, or had supper with their boss. What is the Washington Honors Semester? Well it is just about anything you want to make it. But, whatever you do, you are bound to learn.

"If I tell you on the basis of medical and scientific evidence you can breathe twice as much smog as we originally thought, it's up to you to get the word. "But there are some people who say you're lowering the pollution standards at the behest of the auto industry and other large ui1)an polluters, who will have to spend billions of dollars to meet the guidelines set by the EPA. " "Let the environmentalists say it. There's always someone who can't get, enough clean air. But they're not the ones who ask how much this smog-free air is going to cost. Everyone has to make tradeoffs in this world. Before you throw your weight behind the clean-air enthusiasts, I would like to ask you a question: Would you rather spend $500 extra for a new car in 1982 or live a few more lousy years?" "Is that my only choice?" "Yes." "I'd prefer to save the $500 on the car." "And so would most people. To Americans a car is a necessity, and they don't wish to be penalized just because there are a few health nuts out there who want to go back to Walden Pond." "Do you think there will be a fight over the lowering of the EPA standards for clean air?" I asked Harbinger. "Isn't there always?" he sighed. "Every time we decide what's good for the American people, someone is going to contest us. Our job is not to prevent the air from being poisoned, but to make sure that the public can live with the poison in the air. "The thing to remember is that the American people can take a lot more pollution than they think they can. If, in the next few years, you start to cough, wheeze, or get headaches, I think you owe it to yourself to ask, 'Am I really sick, or is it the government?" (c) 1979, Los Angeles Times Syndicate

Gayle Boss If you listen to top 40 rock 'n roll radio, your're misinformed. This isn't, as A1 Stewart croons, "The Year of the Cat." It is "The Year of the Goat." I was just as misinformed as any WGRD addict until early last Sunday evening when an orange dragon supported by Levis legs delightfully disturbed by study. Growling and snorting to the rhythm of pencils on tin cans, ten or so students disguised as a sheetdraped dragon coiled their way around the card catalog and study cubicles on the first floor of Van Zoeren, twisted up the stairs, around my table and out the door. A pretty coed with jet black hair and a smile that lit up her whole face carried a sign and sang out its slogan: "Happy Chinese New Year." In the ancient Chinese way of reckoning time, the first day of the New Year fell on what for us was the 28th of January. The years pass in twelve year cycles corresponding to what the ancients believed were the earth's twelve moons. Each year is given the name of an animal significant in Chinese mythology: the pig, mouse, horse, snake, dragon, monkey, chicken, goat, rabbit, dog, tiger, ox. The year is believed to display characteristics of its representative animal. This year, as the year of the goat, is to be one of peace and good luck, especially to farmers, doctors, and older people, since the goat is seen as the protector of life and health. Mythology lesson aside, I was delighted by the Chinese students' parade of pride in their national heritage. Although no one of them stood much over 5'6", these were no small persons who told the campus Sunday night that they not only accept, but take pleasure in their distinctiveness and nationality difference. American society's evangelist—the advertiser—preaches conformity as a cardinal virtue:. everyone who is someone has a feathered haircut, a three-piece suit, sleek sports car, and docksiders. Pressed by the hypnotizing power of commercials coaxing one

into conformity, it's a rare thing to be able to stand up with a calm selfassurance in appreciation of one's personal peculiarities. And it's especially rare on Hope's campus. It's a hard thing to be unself-conscious and comfortable with one's peculiarities here. There aren't many of us. And among us, most are of similar background and experiences: white, middle-class, well-educated. That in itself doesn't mean that anyone not white, middle-class and welleducated has to feel out of place here. But unfortunately, and ironically, underneath white, middle-class, welleducatedness is the mass advertisinginfused attitude: if you don't look and act like us, you're wierd. Hope student leaders meeting at Marigold Lodge recognized the same attitude when they concluded, as reported in last week's anchor. "Most people at Hope lack social skills in dealing with differences." This is no baseless observation. I was disappointed in the reactions of the Hopeites around me in Van Zoeren last Sunday to the Chinese students' New Year's parade. All but one stayed in their chairs. Most didn't smile or return the "Happy New Year" greeting. A few didn't bother to do any more than glance up with bored indifference. Two girls near me sniffed, "Ok, they've made their point. Now they can go home." This understandably smothered much of the Chinese students' enthusiasm. The orange-sheeted dragon's stomp became a shuffle, his growl, a whimper. There seems to me to be a contradiction in our intent and our actions. Isn't our intent in attending a' liberal arts college to become well-rounded people who can appreciate all the wonderful diversity in thought and lifestyles? Then why do we turn up our noses at anything—at anyone—who isn't just like we are? For the I/200th of Hope's population that are visibly, distinctly Chinese: Bravo! Thank you for pointing out that you are glad to be unique and distinct. We have much to learn from you.

Departments plan for May term opportunities Jean Hunt Hope students interested in enrolling in the 1979 May term session will be able to select from classes offered in a schedule due to come out March 1, according to registrar Jon Huisken. This year's tentative schedule shows that there are a myriad of course offerings for the Hopeite to choose from, ranging from on-campus introductory classes to courses being conducted overseas. Students can sign up for May term classes during the week of April 9, when registration for fall semester classes will be held. Prior application for some programs, such as those taking place outside Hope's campus, is strongly recommended, and the interested student should check with the particular department for specific registration deadlines and information. Whether or not individual classes will indeed be held will depend on student response to the course, demonstrated at registration. It should be added that there will be more course offerings made available in the permanent May term schedule coming out. Among these additions will be three senior seminars: Dr. Irwin Brink, professor of chemistry, will expound on 4'Science and Human Values," Dr. Arthur Jentz, professor of philosophy, will teach "Philosophy of Religion," and Dr. Allen Verhey, assistant professor of religion, will be the professor of "Man, Medicine, and Morals." During May term there are many settings in which students can study

outside of a campus ampus classroom. Intemships sponsored by various depart- v ments offer students the chance to work in a field of their interest. The placement is usually with an area employer, and although students are not paid for their services, they are given credit. These internships give students the opportunity to garner work experience while still in school. One such program, slated for May term, is offerwi by the communications department and will be supervised by Joseph MacDoniels, assistant professor of communications. Amone the off-campus programs being offered for May term is ^Geology in Colorado," which has been a part of the curriculum since 1973 and was one of the first off-campus programs. This year there are two programs in Colorado: a new five week course for geology majors; and the original, non-majors course lasting three weeks. The majors program is designed to give students practical training in the field, th prepare them for future jobs as geologists. The nonmaiors course, designed to teach basically the same things that are taught in a beginning geology course, can satisfy part of a major's curriculum or Hope's core requirement in natural sciences. Robert Reinking, associate professor of geology, who will be one of the professors on the Colorado expedition, said that the site for study will be in the Rocky Mountain belt, not far from either true desert or the high mountains. This will give students a

Last week, about 120 students rolled up their sleeves for measles shots. The Health Department considered this a fairly good turnout. This program was started at Hope to avoid a possible breakout of measles for the college-age person. Even though the Hope community is not in any real danger, there have been reports of the measles in the Holland community. Because of the simultaneous blood drive, many students did not receive the shots. Consequently, the Health

skiers and others who love winter sports: bundle up in layers, use sunscreens and lotions to avoid sun and wind chapped skin, and wear masks to avoid breathing in the bitter cold air. While breathing in very cold air won't kill you, it will constrict the alveoli in the lungs and make breathing very difficult. As for wearing hats, mittens, scarves, and boots for walking around campus, it's really a matter of personal preference and comfort. Wear as much as you need to keep warm. Frostbite, while there is no cure, can be avoided wearing warm, layered clothing and by keeping exposure of the hands and feet to the cold at a minimum.

V Doug Koopman From now on, this comer of the sports page will be reserved for something a little different than a reporter's article. Beginning with this week, this column will take a look behind what happens on the playing floors and discuss some things about Hope sports that perhaps are not as obvious as won-lost records, scoring statistics, names and numbers. This week, Fd like to express some thoughts about the use of the Dow Center (or "the Temple" as some have not so affectionately called it). It's great to see this fantastic facility being used to such a degree. Almost every hour it*s open people are playing pick-up basketball, lifting weights, playing racquet ball, and running on the track. To be utilized is its purpose and it's great to see so many people becoming increasingly active. But all this activity also gives me some fear. It's the fear that maybe our ends are getting confused with our means. We're not here at Hope to become better athletes (at least most of us don't have that as our main goal). We are here to become more effective participators in "the real world," in all aspects of that world. Of course physical fitness is a part of that becoming, but it must be balanced by other areas. It would seem logical that a person who spends three hours each afternoon in the Dow Center has lo be missing out on at least something else going on in the campus community that might be as beneficial as a good workout. From my comer, I found it easy to sympathize with those who criticized "science j o c k s " for spending their whole lives in Peale and missing out on so many other activities that were going on. But right now I see that same criticism being used closer to home and wonder if it might become true of the "phys. ed. jocks" and the Dow Center as well. I hope not.

continued from page 5 creates another problem for geothermal development. One geothermal field is used almost exclusively by tourists and lies partly under the city of Roturua. Large " scale exploitiation cannot therefore be considered. The networks of pipes and the generating plant in a geothermal area are not terribly attractive. Decisions will have to be made as to which fields will be reserved for tourism, which can be used for both tourism and energy production, and which should be devoted exclusively to energy production. Today's temperature is due to go over 100 degrees Farenheit. I hope this thought and reading of geothermal energy will melt some of Holland's snow.

Nibert is currently the leading scorer in the MIAA, followed by his teammate Milton Barnes. These two players together are averaging 45.7 points per game. The Britons are the top team in the league through this scoring punch and because of the fact that they are the top rebounding team in the league. .

This past Sunday, the National Basketball Association held their annual Ail-Star game. The game was played in the Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan and drew the largest crowd to attend an all-star game—31,745. The question is whether or not the crowd was pleased with what they saw. The fans seemed more interested in the entertainment that was provided by the chicken that hails from San Diego. This student from a San Diego college dresses himself up as a chicken and prances around, entertaining the crowd. He is very active at the San Diego baseball and football games, and did his routine at the NBA all-star game—which received more attention than the game itself received. The game was not what you would expect from the best players in the NBA. The players acted as if they didn't care about the final outcome. They seemed more worried about their individual performances and how their final statistics came out. Charlie Vincent, a prominent sports writer for the Detroit Free Press, had this comment on the game: "the play resembled a pick-up game that you would see in a playground rather than a polished performance by the best players in the NBA.'' The players played one-on-one, rather than a team-oriented game. The first half saw the West all-stars pull out to an 80-55 lead. This seems like an exceptional advantage between two teams of supposedly equal talent. The West squad was able to play well.defensively and also shot well. In the second half, the East quintet came roaring back and made a game of it. Julius "Dr. J " Erving led their surge and took the game scoring honors with 29 points. The final score was 134-129, with the West team holding on to win the game. Dave Thompson led the West team in scoring and also won the most valuable player award for the game. The problem arises when you consider who the fans and the coaches chose to represent the top players in the professional ranks. Why the East team had a shortage of guards is a big mystery. Their overabundance of forwards is hard to explain. The East team only had three guards, but this resulted after the injury to Doug Collins. " ~ " The situation in choosing the all-star teams for the NBA is rto different than the shananigans that go on each summer to chose the baseball all-stars. The fans are not concerned about who wins or who deserves to play, as long as they can see their favorite players in the game. There were several guards that should have made the team that there was no excuse for omitting from the line-ups. Norm Nixon, the floor general of the Los Angeles Lakers, is possibly the best guard in the game at the present time. This player was not even considered for the team! Others who were omitted and who should have at least been considered for the teams were Phil Ford of the Kansas City Kings and Ray Williams of the New York Knicks. . The fact that these players were not considered proves the fact that the fans' voting for the teams is not always the best way. The spectators are more interested in seeing run and gun basketball and are not interested, nor do they appreciate any more, a good defensive player. The fact that both teams consisted of the top scorers, in the game right now prove this point. The argument is that as long as the fans have to pay for the games, they might as well pick the players that they would like to see play. I guess that this is well and good. The fans are more likely to turn out and pay to see the games if they are seeing the players that they would choose to see. It is too bad that the fan interest has shifted from good team ball to run and gun ball. ^ As an avid fan, I am losing interest in the present game. I am not saying that I do not like seeing fast breaks or slam-dunk action. I get as excited as the next guy. What I do not care for is the lack of appreciation for a good defensive game. Maiiy fans only judge the players by what they can read in the statistical results. The thing that d6es not show up there is their defensive play and how they play away from the ball. As long as the emphasis upon a player's performance will be based on what the fan can read about him on the stat sheet, the NBA all-star game will continue as a k4 choose-up game from the playground.''

Women record highest score, Glen Oaks and Nazareth fall The women roundballers improved their overall record to 10 wins in 12 outings. The women won two games last week over non-league opponents, defeating Glen Oaks 81-71 and Nazareth College 67-50. The Dutchmen got their highest point total of the season in their victory over Glen Oaks. This total also exceeded all their totals for last season. Lora Hanson, who has the highest scoring average on the team, led the Hope cagers with 21 points. Sue Gebhart, the only senior on the young squad, tallied 15 points in playing a strong game underneath. Jody Foy and Anne Mulder each contributed 12 points, while Faye Berens added 10 points. The women played strong on the boards, holding a 46-35 edge in rebounding. Hope shot 47 per cent from the field. This included a blistering 60 per cent in the first half, giving Hope a lead that they never relinquished. Saturday, the women travelled to Kalamazoo and defeated the cagers of

Nazareth College. The Dutchmen led throughout the whole game, holding a 33-26 advantage at the half. Nazareth was unable to mount a serious threat in the second half. Foy was the leading point getter in the game with 21 tallies. Gebhart put in a strong performance with 12 points and 13 rebounds. Mulder also grabbed 13 rebounds, leading Hope to a big 60-48 lead in rebounding. Yesterday, the women hosted the quintet from Aquinas College. This was the second meeting of the season between these two teams, the first game was won by Hope 61-55. Saturday, the Hope squad travels to Albion to battle the Britons. This will be their fourth league match of the season. Hope's record in MIAA competition is now at 2-1. The Britons are tied with Hope for second place with an identical record. This sets the stage for an important game in league play. Each team has defeated Olivet and been beaten by the Knights of Calvin who lead the league.
