News Health clinic deals with by Beth Pechta anchor associate editor and Eric Shotwell anchor editor The staff of the Hope College Health Clinic has been working overtime these past two weeks, after a flu epidemic on the col lege campus filled the clinic to overflowing. A c c o r d i n g to S h a r o n Blanksma, Director of Health Services at Hope College, beteween 85 and 90 students per day crowded into the clinic at the beginning of last week. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were the three peak days of the campus flu epidemic, when an over whelming percentage of students were reported to be ill.
Most ill students had symptoms of the type A influenza virus, according to Blanksma, which include a high fever, body aches, a chronic cough and vomiting. Other students apparently had the 24-hour flu bug or a common cold As a result the health clinic staff was kept very busy. In fact, staff members were overloaded for much of the week 4 'Not only did we have our regular gynecology and allergy clinics going," said Blanksma, "but one of our three registered nurses was also ill." The problem of overcrowding, said Blanksma, was due in part to the fact that students were coming in to the health clinic.
located in Dow Center, when they actually might have been better off staying in bed. "A lot of col lege illnesses, including the flu, are viral," Blanksma said, "and there are no treatments except perhaps bed rest and lots ol fluids."
Also, she said that the health clinic could actually do very little to cure the flu, but could alleviate some of the symptoms. "A lot of people think that antibiotics will fix anything," she said, "and that's just not true. We can't do much for people with the flu. What would help the most is if Sf - ÂŤlÂŤ''its. she said, came to the students would just realize that heali ' rlinic primarily in hopes sitting in a waiting room and coughing on each other isn't goof gettmj; d "quick fix" remedy Sonv- students who went to the ing to make them any better and clinic on Monday, she stated, will probably make the other said that they had to get well people worse '" because they had papers due or tests coming up.

Winter Happening begins next Saturday HOPE - Presentations, performances and athletic events will all be part of this year's annual Hope College Winter Happening on Saturday, Feb. 18. Among the events and activities scheduled for the day are three seminars concerning contemporary topics, the college's popular " R e n d e z v o u s with History," a luncheon featuring musical entertainment and a men's varisty basketball game in the Holland Civic Center. The event is sponsored by the college's Alumni Association. Except for the basketball game and the Winter Happening luncheon, admission to all events is free. The three seminars, featuring presentations by Hope faculty members, will be given concurrently at 10 a.m. The locations of the seminars will be available on the day of the event at the Winter Happening registration desk in the DeWitt Center collegiate lounge. Robert Thompson, assistant professor of music, and John Shea, part-time lecturer of music, will present "The Art of Jazz: a Listener's Guide," combining lecture and demonstration in an informative, enjoyable survey of Jazz styles, composers and songs. Thompson and Shea will discuss and perform Jazz pieces from the '30s through the '50b, including works by composers George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington. Dr. Sander DeHaan, associate professor of German and the college's instructor in Russian, will speak on "Poland in Crisis." DeHaan will discuss the impact
of Glasnost on Poland, examining dynamics such as labor unions, political parties and the church. DeHaan visited both Poland and the Soviet Union while living in Europe last year. Dr. Jacob Nyenhuis, professor of classics and provost at Hope, will present "From Myth to Reality: the Flight of Daedalus." Nyenhuis will use a slide show to help illustrate the manner in which ancient myth and modern technology became intertwined when a team of engineers, physiologists and cycling champions r e c r e a t e d t h e m a n powered flight of Greek legend. In the classical myth, the inventor Daedalus fashioned a pair of wings from wax and feathers to escape slavery on the island of Crete. In April 1968, Daedalus' namesake, a pedal-driven airc r a f t piloted by a G r e e k bicyclist, duplicated the feat in its 72-mile flight. Dr. Nyenhuis was with the Daedalus team in Greece, acting as an expert on the myth. At 11:15 a.m. in Wichers Auditorium, a dramatic portrayal of personalities from different periods in history will be s t a g e d by H o p e f a c u l t y members. Tliis year's "Rendezvous with History" is entitled "Great Noncomformists." Moderated by David James, director of the college's writing center, the performance is an approach to understanding the past. This year's participants will be (Martin Luther) Dr. Dennis Voskuil, professor of religion; (George F o x ) D r . Donald Crookite, professor of biology;
(Emily Dickenson) Sandra Alspach, assistant professor of communication; (Mother Teresa of Calcutta) Dr. Robin Klay, associate professor of economics and business administration; and (Isadora Duncan) Mary Linda Graham Fallon, assistant professor of dance. During the luncheon in the Maas Center auditorium, which begins at 12:30 and costs $5.75 per person, professors Geroge and Roberta Kraft will perform "The Magic of Rodgers and Hammerstein." The Krafts will bring old favorites to life in their costumed presentation, recalling the work of artists responsible for the popular melodies of "Oklahoma" and "The Sound of Music." The Krafts gave more than 40 concerts in sacred or secular music in 1968. Dr. George Kraft is a professor of physical education and chairperson of the department of physical education and athletics. Roberta Kraft is a part-time lecturer of music at Hope. Another highlight of the day will be the men's varsity basketball game against Adrian College's varsity team in an MIAA league match-up in the Holland Civic Center at 3 p.m. Halftime will feature a free throw shooting contest involving spectators. A limited number of general admission game tickets a r e available for persons attending other Winter Happening events. Advanced registration is recommended for the seminars and luncheon. For further information, call the Hope College Public Relations Office at 394-7860.
to isolate everyone, so it wouldn't help to cancel classes, since everyone lives around everyone else to begin with," she said "My feeling is that the only way school would be closed down is if all the professors got sick and couldn't teach. " Blanksma said that she did not expect the number of cases of the flu to decrease rapidly any time soon. "It will probably run a three-week course," she said "The people who are infected now will probably infect several people around them, until the epidemic runs its course. " "It wouM be wonderful to wave a m a g i c wand and m a k e everyone well," said Blanksma. "but sometimes the only treat ment for these things is time."
Hope to hold blood drive on Feb. 21 by Carol Ormsby anchor feature editor It's on your radio and television, in your newspapers and magazines. "Give to the Red Cross. The life you save could be your own." You've heard the slogan so often that you are immune to it. It's a simple slogan, and it asks for something that doesn't cost anything: a pint of blood. Ottawa County Red Cross has the job of collecting 550 units of blood a day. This amount is only for basic daily needs at hospitals; it doesn't account for any emergency situation. If the Red Cross does not meet its quota, emergency blood drives may need to be scheduled. When blood drives are scheduled for schools like Hope, goals are set. These goals are included in the total quota, so if they are not met, the Red Cross does not have the required units it needs for the day. The last blood drive at Hope was in October. The goal was 200 units, but only 111 were given.
That means that for that day, the Red Cross was nearly 100 units short. A pint is a small unit. A person can donate a pint of blood every eight weeks. Many people have developed a fear of giving blood because they think they can catch AIDS. This is wrong. People cannot get AIDS from donating blood. Lisa Stefoninski of Ottawa County Red Cross is also in charge of the blood drives held at Grand Valley State University. At Grand Valley, the goals are the same as those set for Hope. Grand Valley gave 205 units last fall and 156 units last week. The next blood drive, cosponsored by Red Cross and Alpha Phi Omega, is scheduled for Tuesday, February 21, in the Maas Center Auditorium from 9:30to3:30. The goal for the spring blood drive is 150 units. "Give to the Red Cross. The life you save could be your own." A simple slogan. The simple truth.

•HPv.ila «< VAN ZOEREN / VANDER WERF BLDGS
The renovation project of Van Zoeren and VanderWerf Haiis is on schedule, according to Tom Renner, director of the public relations department. The construction will be finished during January ;990, its orignal completion date, pending approval by the fire marshal, Renner said. The expansion of the halls will provide more space for some academic departments and the Academic Support Center. New classrooms, lecture halls, laboratories and faculty offices are being added. Renner reported the following plan of the project: Van Zoeren Hall will be completed in early May. The physics, m a t h e m a t i c s and computer science faculty will move temporarily into Van Zoeren's second floor while p a r t s of VanderWerf will be renovated
during the fall semester of the 1989-90 school year. A connecting link between the two halls and the new entrance to Van Zoeren will be finished in mid-August. The connecting link will have new classrooms, laboratories, a lecture hall, seminar rooms and a student lounge. The economics-business administration and education departments will be in Van Zoeren when the school year starts. The education department will be on the second floor and the economics-business departments will be on the first floor. Parts of VanderWerf, primarily the first floor lecture halls, will be finished before the new school year starts. The entire hall will be completed during November. Between s e m e s t e r s , the physics, math and computer science departments will return to V a n d e r W e r f w h i l e t h e sociology d e p a r t m e n t and
Academic Support Center will move into Van Zoeren's second floor. Everyone will be in their new quarters when the second semester begins. The exterior of the halls is also being redone to update their 1960 8 architecture, the decade when they were built, Renner said. Renner said he senses enthusiasm among people on campus, particularly the faculty m e m b e r s moving into the renovated halls, who have been cramped inside smaller buildings. 3.8 million dollars has already been spent on this 4.85 million dollar project, Renner s<jid. He said there is 44no question" the debt will be paid off, due to the college's history of alumni contributing money. ' ' T h i s i s k i n d of a r ^ n a i s s a n c e , " Renner said. vVhen it's done, people are goto sav 'Wow'."
Black History Month is a connection to the past by Samantha Gano Special to the anchor As a black student on a white campus, Black History Month for me means a connection with the past. It is a connection to the great Black men and women that don't appear or appear very briefly in history text books. It gives me a feeling of pride. I can say I'm proud to be Black, because I can look back and see what my people have done. Their accomplishments, their feats and their courage are ingrained in my memory. These Black men and women paved the way for me. They are my role models. Many times all our white counterparts see is our struggles /rom slavery and our rebellion .ilM'/vH M
for what the Constitution promised everyone, equality. Our history is a vast one. There is more to our people than the issue of slavery and civil rights. We were inventors, innovators, scientists, doctors and educators that made this country what it is. But yet, history as it is taught and read, leaves out these most important facts. Black History Month opens the door into the past, so that we can say, ''Look at our accomplishments that benefit America, acknowledge and learn what is neglected in history books." It is our way to pay tribute to those before us. If it had not been for them we might not be where we are now. It is our way of educating our children, so •«•
they can pass on the history of these Black men and women's lives. It is our way of saying we have not forgotten where we came from as we look ahead into the future. Slavery did not bind us. We are strong people and with that strength we went out into the world and made life easier for ourselves and those to come after us. It is the history text books that keep us suspended in the length of time from slavery to civil rights. There are books full of our heroes and heroines, yet these are unknown. Black History Month is the key to unlock our rich heritage and history. If only for a month, our place in the shaping of America is acknowledged.

Van Sertima speaks on presence of Africans in ancient America by Mpine Qakisa anchor staff writer There is not a single major civilization in this world that is not influenced, according to Dr. Ivan Van Sertima. Speaking at Hope College on Friday night for part of the National Black History Month events and activities, Van Sertima talked about the presence of Africans in ancient America based on his book, They Came Before Columbus, published by Random Press in 1977, which deals with a "number of contacts both planned and accidental between Africans and Americans in different historical periods. M "It's one thing to discover the physical presense of people," Dr. Van S e r t i m a , a noted anthropologist, a literary critic, a linguist and a professor at Rutgers University said, "but it's another thing to discover the impact other people had on other peoples' cultures." Dr. Van Sertima who gave a lecture that was accompanied by slides that depicted giant stoneheads, boats used for navigation in 948-680 b.c., maps showing the correct latitudinal and longitudinal co-ordinates between Africa and America. "All this evidence indicates the presence of Africans in America long before Columbus set his foot on the new world," he said. Adding to that he said that the first colossal stonehead with African type features was found by Mexican peasants in 1858. He e x p l a i n e d t h a t t h a t discovery led to more diggings at Olmec, Mexico, where 14,6-9 feet high, weighing about 10-40 tons of stoneheads with braids and kinky hairs, black coloration, shapes of the lips and noses, tattoo markings that were familiar to the African world of that period were found. Other stoneheads were capped with military helmets worn by the Egypto-Nubian army of the period. Van Sertima pointed out that the evidence of stoneheads, clay sculptures of African types in the
O l m e c w o r l d , p r o v e s ' tat Africans came to America long before the slave trade. Some of the discoveries by Smithsonian, according to Van Sertima, were skulls and skeletons that were associated with pre-Columbia America "and they were also a significant minority among the natives." "The evidence was there, but nobody could put it together," he added. Talking about the ships used 100 years before Christ to cross the Atlantic, he told the audience that it was demonstrated in 1969 when a reed boat was made and crossed from a North African s e a p o r t to t h e C a r i b b e a n "without steering" using the Africa-America currents. "This evidence was also affirmed by the Chinese when they told us about the transportation of elephants during that period," he added. Another thing that was found, according to Van Sertima, were hieroglyphic symbols with the same shape and meaning amid native and distinctly different glyphs and scripts. "The duplication of African and American cultures was found in words used that meant the same thing in Mexico and Egypt," he explained. Van Sertima said that not only words but pyramids, furnaces and other things that were so identical that "only an expert could tell them a p a r t " were discovered. "The idea that we have about the new world," he said, "is that all cultures were influenced which were not as geographically isolated as America before Columbus discovered it." "When we talk about Western civilization, we don't talk about semi or little but we talk about the depth of civilization," he added. He told the audience that if it is like that with Western civilization why can't it be like that with African or American civilization. He said that during his traveling expenditures in Europe, he
found places where people didn't have or use showers "partly because not all Europe was civUized." "Most anthropologists," Van Sertima said " a r e fascinated by queer people, making kingship maps, checking out cultures, religions, social lives, studying people like monkeys." "When dealing with Africa as diseased, oppressed and poor everybody gets excited, but when we talk about heritage, we are told it's a myth," he commented. "Science and technology in Africa existed long before slave trade," Dr. Van Sertima said. He said that it was founded that steel smelting in Tanzania 2,000 y e a r s ago used sophisticated t e c h n i q u e s in achieving high temperatures. He also mentioned that in 300 b.c., the astronomical observatory was one of the most accurate and in the 13th century the Dogon astronomers discovered a "star impossible to see with the naked eye" as well as an orbit on its axis, a fact that was known three years ago in modern astronomy. Among one of the books Van Sertima edited is the Blacks and Science, dealing with medicines, vaccines, surgery and antiseptics used by Africans of the period. "How could Africans do this when they are so primitive?" he asked. He said that his books are an attempt to shift anthropological focus away from the primitive periphery to the c e n t e r of African civilization. "Partial truth is worse than a lie," he emphasized, for a long time no positive image has been given of Africa. "Marvelous Egypt has its roots in Africa," he said, even though Egypt is no longer considered part of Africa. " A f r i c a is a s h a t t e r e d dynamo," Van Sertima said. "Burned bits and pieces of African as well as American history."
Forensic team competes at Wheaton HOPE - Members of the Hope College Forensic Association debate team competed in six debate rounds at Wheaton College last Friday and Saturday (Jan. 27-28) on the topic "Resolved: that restriction of the possession of handguns by U.S. citizens would be justified." Erik Da vies, a freshman from Waukesha, Wise., and Subhash Chandra, a f r e s h m a n from Midland, won decisions against debate teams from Gustavus Adolphus College, North Dakota State University and South
Dakota State University. They lost rounds to Macalester College, Northern Illinois University and Trinity College. The team's record of 3 wins and 3 losses tied them with 10 other teams to be eligible for octafinal elimination competition. However, their speaker ratings failed to make the cut-off. Gloria Moser, a junior from West Olive, accompanied the team as timekeeper. Coach Sandy Alspach, professor of communication at Hope, was especially pleased at the team's performance since
this was the first college debate tournament for both students. Both debaters previously competed for the college's forensic association in individual speaking events. The debate division of the association plans to enter the Marquette "Bride of Frankenstein" tournament on Feb. 10-11. At that meet, the team debaters will be joined by individual debaters (Lincoln-Douglas style) who are preparing arguments on t h e issue of c h a n g i n g t h e presidential election process.

Thirty faculty members and the president have been invited to dessert a 17:30 p. m. in the Otte Room. One of the goals set forth by Mortar Board at a planning meeting in September was to recognize the outstanding
achievements of both students and p r o f e s s o r s . C h a p t e r members selected educators from over twelve departments to attend this dessert and short program.

Baylor pie man returns (CPS) -- Baylor University's Pie Man, or someone just like him, has returned. A long-haired man recently barged into a business class, ran up to student Jim Wyatt, and hit him in the face with a pie. "I was just sitting in class looking at my notes when I heard this guy say 4hey,* and then I looked up into a pie," Wyatt recalled. When Wyatt left class to clean up, he was pied again in the restroom. M e a n w h i l e , b a c k in the classroom, the Pie Man stuck his head into the room and yelled, "Hey, Gina, you're next," to another student, Prof. Leslie Rasner reported. In a scene out of a t.v. cop show, several class members bolted up to chase the assailant. One student, Steve Spoonemore, managed to jump into the Pie Man's getaway car, but eventually had to roll out of it while it was moving. The Pie Man and a woman companion in the car were screaming at him and hitting him, Spoonemore said. It w a s n ' t t h e f i r s t t i m e habitues of the Waco. Texas, campus been pied this school year. Several students and professors were pied in class during f i r s t s e m e s t e r , but Baylor spokesman Dr. James Baker reports that the first semester Pie Man has been apprehended and punished through normal
disciplinary channels. The pie massacre in Rasner's class, he concluded, had to be the work of different people. Pie attacks were common on many campuses in the early eighties, when the weapons of choice seemed to be cream or b e r r y p i e s . P r o f e s s o r s at Michigan State University and the University of Colorado were victimized, as was the dean of students at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Celebrities visiting campuses in those days had to be careful too. William F. Buckley, New York Sen. Daniel Moynihan, antiabortionist Phyllis Schfaley, former Ohio Gov. James Rhodes, W a t e r g a t e c o n s p i r a t o r s E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, artist Andy Warhol, anti-gay rights activist and singer Anita Bryant and former CIA Director William Colby all were pied at various schools during the period. Reactions to Baylor's pie revival varied. Original victim Wyatt laughed it off, noting 4l It tasted pretty good." Yet Gina Gee, the second student threatened during the incident, was "really upset." Teacher Rasner was not amused. "If I had a deadly weapon, I would use it in my defense. It is embarrassing. It is degrading. This just should not go on in a university. It is pa~t a joke. ft

With the recent flu epidemic, rumors about the Hope College Health Clinic seem to have multiplied exponentially. Students who have been ill with the flu will testify that they were forced to wait in long lines at the clinic only to be told that bed rest is the best remedy for their illnesses. Other students mention previous incidents involving the health clinic, where students were "misdiagnosed" or given incorrect medication and-or improper treatment. While there is no simple answer to these problems, one thing is certain; there is a communication gap between the health clinic and the student body of Hope College. Students who go to the health clinic looking for a "quick fix" are bound to be disappointed. The problem here is that the health clinic is looked upon as inferior to a medical doctor's practice, but is nonetheless expected to provide immediate results. No one goes to the doctor expecting to be immediately cured of the flu or strep throat or any other illness, but that is exactly what happens at the health clinic. Also, students have to realize that the health clinic, while it is a medical facility, is designed primarily as an educational, preventive center, rather than as a family medical practice or a pharmacy. The staff at the health clinic does not have all the resources available that a community hospital may have, and so the clinic is forced to operate on a different level entirely. However, the health clinic's recent decision to send a memo around campus advising students infected with the flu virus to stay at home was perhaps the wrong method for the clinic to use in dealing with informing the student body. The memo was meant to imply that since the flu is a virus, bed rest and fluids are the only true remedies. However, in sending the memo, the health clinic made it seem as though they were unconcerned with the welfare of students who were ill. While the health clinic was obviously poorly equipped to handle an influenza epidemic of this proportion, the clinic normally services nearly 4000 students a semester. Students should recognize that the health clinic does its best with what it has. They should also realize that a large medical facility would not be practical at a college the size of Hope, and that a "quick fix" for the flu is just not possible.

Letters to the editor Chair explains Fantasia security need Dear Editor,
Editor-in-chief Associate Editor News Editor Assistant News Editor Entertainment Editor Teature Editor Sports Editor Photo Editor Production Manager Ad Manager Cartoonist Advisor
I would like to use your column to express to those who purchased legitimate Fantasia tickets my apologies for having to subject them to the indignities of our security measures last Friday evening. We found such procedures necessary, however, to reduce the number of "crashers" at the event. Although those who try to attend without a ticket attest to the fun of the event and I a m sure intend no harm, they jeopardize the future of Fantasia. If many people plan to crash we simply cannot sell as many tickets. SAC needs not only the revenue to cover the costs of the event but also the high numbers of p e o p l e t o s e c u r e t h e ballrooms. Fantasia is a small affair from the perspective of the hotel, which has conventions that use hundreds of rooms and generate far more income than does Fantasia. For them to allow us to use both ballrooms, we
must be able to guarantee that they will be selling as many dmners that night as the aparity i\f the rooms will aliow. We cannot afford to guarantee them a payment of that size unless we have sold all tickets. SAC will unfortunately have to hire security people next y e a r a s well, although presently being devised are better procedures which will both decrease the time and waiting in line and better preserve the spirit of the occasion. I would also like to mention that SAC will have great difficulty in responding to the demand for dance-only tickets. If many people were to buy dance-only tickets, we would probably be unable to sell all the whole-event tickets, leaving us unable to secure the use of the hotel's ballrooms. We will sell danceonly tickets next year only if we feel reasonably confident that we will be able to sell all 425 wholeevent tickts. Finally, although $35 may
seem expensive, that amount does not even cover the cost of the meals and ballroom rentals, which cost $36 per couple. Your activities fee pays for the balance of the meal, the entertainment, the posters, the invitations, and the ticket materials. The 200 plus hours of labor given by volunteers was, of course, free. Many thanks to all who worked on Winter Fantasia 1989. Sincerely, David W. Lowry, Chairperson SAC - Formals Committee

SLIP OF THE MIND
Student explains Gay and Lesbian Student Union Dear Editor, In case you haven't seen one of the blue f l y e r s t h a t w e r e liberated around campus during the second week of this semester, The Hope College Gay and Lesbian Student Union is reorganizing for 1969, and, as always, is extending an invitation to all gay and lesbian students to join. The H.C.G.L.S.U. is a nonofficial group that has had a history dating back to the 1970s. A good way to think of it is a fraternity-sorority for Gays. Though this analogy may ruffle the feathers of some, it really is valid. We have pledging, a rough, leam-as-you-go tutorial in feigning interest in the opposite sex, repressing original thoughts, building walls between yourself and others by monitoring every single word you say and never quite trusting them, laughing at and even telling 'fag' jokes - all t h i s c o u r t e s y of o u r ' p l e d g e m a s t e r s * -- p a r e n t s , friends, teachers, T.V., and
culture in general. After all this frustration, we offer a chance to 'rush,' or meet other Gays and see if you like them. Trust me: you will. In all of my many experiences of meeting people who join, there is an immediate, affirming recognition, similarities of interests, experiences, thinking and outlooks on life. Everything needed to start a friendship. Not to say that all Gays are alike, or like each other - just that after the oppressive environment that is Hope College has been lifted, and we can be ourselves, you will find that the person behind those glancing eyes actually has a brain and is just as relieved as you are to be in a place where no censureship is necessary. Formally, the group meets about five times early in the semester. After that, friendships have developed to the point where meetings just happen, rather than being planned in adv a n c e . In p a s t y e a r s , for meetings we have watched
O F F THE CUFF
Are you one of those compulsive list-makers? I know I am. Almost every morning, I sit down and write out a list of things I have to do that day. Or, if I'm feeling really ambitious, I write down my plans for the entire week. I figure that list-making keeps me from forgetting and procrastinating. Usually my lists consist of homework I have to do, people I have to call and errands I have to run. But something inevitably happens somewhere between making out my list and actually completing any of the tasks I've listed. Occasionally, I do finish everything I've set out to do in a day. Most of the time, though, I lose the list, or it gets misplaced on my desk. Then I either have to clean off the desk, or make a new list. And it's usually much easier just to start from scratch. Sometimes, I'll spend so much time making lists that I don't have time to do anything on them. The nice things about the whole system, though, is that even if I misplace my list and find it again a month later, most
of the items on it still have to be finished, so it's not even obsolete. Either that, or the list has finished itself , the people I should have called have called me, the errands I had to run are no longer necessary, and my homework gets done five minutes before class. Like many compulsive listmakers, I tried to solve my problems once and for all by buying those calendars and date books on sale in the bookstore. But by now I've got so many different calendars that I never know which one to use. To find out if I have an upcoming exam, I've got to look through six or seven calendars. I even tried a cassette recorder, but I forgot where I put the tapes. So instead I've returned to compulsive list-making. Obviously, the most productive times to create lists are during boring lectures. After all, you can't do anything else in class except take notes, so technically you're not really wasting time. And it even looks to the professor like you're paying attention. I know there are probably many other people who do exact-
movies, and had speakers, like Dr. Boulton from the Religion department; Terry Wisser, an ARC patients and AIDS prevention activist; and Dr. Dickie from the Psychology Dept. (All of them were invited only after every member agreed.) The people to see for more details are Dr. Wayne Boulton (Religion), Dr. J a n e Bach (English), Rev. Gerry VanHeest (Chapel), or go to the counseling center. None of these people will give your name to anyone without your permission. If you feel you want to join, you will be given my name, and I, yours. After we meet you may decide whether you wish to join. Should you decide not to, I will not give your name to anyone. In fact, if you were a student last year, I do not have your name, so think about coming again! Many thanks. Name and Address withheld by request ly the same thing. I sat next to a fellow list-maker in British Literature last semester, for example. "What's that you're writing?" I asked. She showed me. It was a huge list of things to do, nearly two pages in length. I was amazed. In fact, that experience convinced me that I'd be a lot better off if I kept my lists short. Now I just write "Things to do: Make list" and leave it at that. I never get anything done, but it saves a lot of time that way.
JIM MONNETT The morning of Winter Fantasia last year a group of my friends gathered with me in our suits and dresses to lead a memorial service in Chapel for our friend Loren. Loren had passed away the Sunday before after three years of fighting bone cancer. For most of us it was the first time we had known anyone who had cancer. It was also the first time a close friend had died. They say t i m e heals all wounds. That may be so, but they also say that the scars remain. For me I don't want to forget Loren. Last week I let myself miss him as much as I did that first night when three of us had to roundup all of Loren's and our friends to break the news. It seemed even harder to tell people b e c a u s e e v e r y o n e was dreading that inevitable time. Time may heal the wounds so that I can go on with the living, but sometimes it's better to slip back into my mind and remember everything that is Loren. I'm not tiying to be morbid, but as I wandered my memories of him, I was struck by a few thoughts that maybe you should be struck with too even if you didn't know Loren or someone like him. L o r e n u s e d to t e l l m e sometimes "There's so much more I want to do." He knew that God had a plan for him and was using his cancer but he never saw what the plan was. None of us did. Loren trusted in God though to give him the strength to get through the hard times even when he could see no good whatsoever. Looking back I still wish I could say that I too have "so much more I want to do." But I
A'C" k pakms sooft c*i
can't. I don't have many mountains that 1 want to climb. After watching Loren struggle I wish I could say that I gained a direction to those mountains that he saw. It doesn't work that way though. What I do have is a bunch of bridges. Loren had mountains to climb in his future, but in his present he built bridges. Bridges between people. There were about ten to fifteen people in Loren's immediate circle of friends. We did an awful lot together and built a lot of bridges. At his memorial service I saw so many more bridges that he built with casual people who might have opened a door for him as he came on his one leg and crutches or maybe he opened a door or two for them. A year has passed and I look back at the bridges that I shared with him. Our main group of friends has split in different directions. Some moved into Phelps. Some of us moved out. But we still had our bridges. We were still friends. Good friends. But somewhere we forgot about a part of Loren. We let the bridges rust. There is nothing so horrible to me sitting here today as those corroded friendships that have aged from disuse. There is still a link across the gulf, but it's sagging. It needs some oil. Loren had the oil. I'll never forget what a friend said as we all sat in a circle after midnight the night we received the news. He looked up and said, ,4 We all h a v e t e s t s and homework everyday, but right now it just doesn't matter that much." Our bridges mattered. Shouldn't they still?

Arts Hansel jokes, tells stories, advocates joy 'Joy is a choice." insisted Tim Hansel when he spoke in Dimnent Chapel on Monday in a lecture sponsored by the Counseling Center Using many jokes and anecdotes, Hansel told the audience about how sacred life is and how special everyone is to God and to each other Wearing a baseball cap with ears, he said that people have to stop taking themselves so seriously. "Children are fresh from God," Hansel said, 4 i encourage all of us to be a little child-like every now and then...If you miss out on the fun of life, you miss out on life." Offering some practical advice, Hansel listed and explained four ways to contentment. 1. Slow down: and take the time to enjoy life. 2. Live in the here and now. 3. It takes practise (try just practicing being grateful). 4. Thou shalt not take thyself too seriously. Hansel stressed that the only way the world was going to get to know Him was through Christians. And if the world sees joy in a Christian's life then it is going to see God. One way toward choosing joy is through laughter, Hansel said. "We will be known by our laughter by our love and by our lives." Christians should be "called the most joyous people in the world." Joy, though. Hansel said, is not like happiness which is from
good circumstances. Joy just defies circumstances "Joy is your responsibility," Hansel explained."No one can give it to you but God Himself But you ha ve to choose it." Some Christians spend their lives just being good. Hansel thought. They worry too much about how they appear and not enough about being joyous. "Joy is untidy, it's messy," Hansel said. To demonstrate he called a woman from the au dience and put his hands on her ears as he asked the audience to do the same with the person sitting next to them. Then he said to mess up the other person s hair as a demonstration of how messy something fun and joyous can be A key to discovering joy is to admit that life is difficult. Hansel told about an accident he had some years ago when he fell six stories into a crevass and broke "nearly everything below the neck." He said it was a miracle that he recovered his health even though he lives in chronic pairi^ and fatigue. But through his pain he learned deep joy. "Pain and joy run together," Hansel explained,"Some people never learn true joy because they spend their entire life trying to avoid pain." In the end Hansel defined joy as "that deep settled confidence that says God is in my life. And the ultimate purpose of the Christian faith is to know God." Hansel dedicated the evening to Hope j u n i o r L a u r a l y n n Schosger who is now in New York fighting a brain tumor.
The main issue addressed in the film is women in the work force. Traditionally women have had to work twice as hard as men to earn respect, pride, and dignity With the current women's rights movement, many think this is not true anymore. But with movies such as "Working Girl," we are shown that society has not actress in "Working G i r l " because she convincingly plays progressed much. McGUl was a an ambitious, yet sincere and bright, hardworking woman, but every time she took someone's naive character. Another asset to the film was help trying to move up and land a Sigourney Weaver. Although job with higher standing, it was a Weaver was not in the film near- set-up. The people who supposedly as much as Griffith, her sup- ly were helping Tess were just porting role was effective and en- sending her to powerful men for joyable. Weaver played Kathryn "dates." MeGill refused to get Parker, the boss who everyone ahead by compromising herself fears they will have. Parker's as a woman. By looking at the two women in ruthless and unethical practices the film, appearances would were enraging to watch. When Parker stole ideas from her warrant that MeGill was using secretary, MeGill, I began to her femininity to get what she question whether or not powerful wanted. Interestingly, it was the established businesspersons ever classy looking Parker who used let the "little people" make it - . her feminine wiles to make
business strides. The featured male character in the film was Jack Trainer, played by Harrison Ford. The role was more subtle than Ford's normal adventurous Indiana Jones. I think that Ford did a good job playing Trainer, but MeGill was such a strong character that she only needed a small amount of support. Trainer was the weakest of the main characters. I think that the filmmaker intentionally made the character weaker because he was a male and the film focused on the female characters at a more emotional and developmental level. Are females more aggressive than males on their way to the top? Do females need men to succeed? Do women have to work twice as hard in order to gain respect and pride in the work force? These questions are examined, although not answered in "Working Girl." .

Movie deals with corporate women by Diane Tague anchor staff writer When I walked out of the theatre after seeing "Working Girl," I wanted to cheer for everyone who ever set out to get something and finally got it! It was a feel-good movie that made me want to cheer for the underdog. "Working Girl," which won the Golden Globe Award for Best Comic Picture, is similar to "Rocky" or "Youngblood," but it has some essentials they do not have. Melanie Griffith and dealing with the important and current issues surrounding women
in the work force make "Working Girl" a cut above the rest of the feel-good films on the market. The acting by Griffith was superb. Griffith played Tess MeGill, a secretary who was working hard to move onto the other side of the desk. Griffith, who received the Golden Globe Award for Best Comic Actresss, carried the film because she was in all but two scenes. She was essential to play the character of Tess because Tess needed to be fresh on the screen. Although Griffith has been in several films before, she normally plays a wild, loose type of woman. Grif fith displays her versatility as an
'Det. Harry Crumb' is crowd-pleaser by Carol Ormsby anchor feature editor To answer the question that the movie's title poses. Harry Crumb is the most inept detective since the b u m b l i n g i n s p e c t o r Clouseau. John Candy stars as Harry Crumb, descendant of Crumb and Crumb, famous detectives. The family business has fallen under control of Eliot Dreiser, played by Jeff Jones (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Beatlejuice). Dreiser has filed Harry Crumb away in the Midwest. But the beautiful daughter of P.J. Downing has been kidnapped, and there is no available detective at Crumb and Crumb. So Dreiser sends for Harry, while reassuring Downing, "He's better than good. He's a Crumb." Harry sets out to solve the case, and poor, accident-prone Harry is lucky he doesn't kill himself. Aided by Downing's other d a u g h t e r , Nikki (Shawnee Smith), Harry spies on the main suspect, Nikki's step-mother
Helen (Annie Potts). But Helen and her boyfriend Vince are eager to find out the kidnappers plans, because they want to kill Downing before the kidnappers get all his money. The tension builds as we find out that Harry was assigned to the case because he wasn't supposed to solve it. "Who's Harry Crumb" is a wonderful comedy filled with loads of visual humor From Harry being sucked through the air conditioning vent to getting stuck in a jockey-sized phone booth, the laughs keep coming. Other comic gems of the movie included some wonderful scenes with Tim, the world's laziest butler. In addition, there were also some delightful cameos by Saturday Night Live alumnus Jim Belushi and Joe Flaherty, one of Candy's sidekicks from SCTV. As Harry accidentally solves the mystery, he entertains the audience with his slapstick humor. Harry Crumb is a detective. "Harry Crumb" is a crowdpleaser.
and we have a winner! A winner has finally been picked for the third semi-occasional anchor Caption Contest. Although there were many entries, two stood out as being above the rest. Honorable mention goes to David DeBoer, for his caption to the above picture: "This is the last time we let our roommates pimp us for Fantasia!" First place honors, and a pair of two tickets to the Quad 31 seven-screen theatre go to Matt Vonk, for the caption: "I agreed to wear her shorts, if she would go for the leather collar and chain thing." Thanks to all those who entered. Look for another anchor caption contest in an upcoming issue! Congratulations Matt!

Sports MIAA by Scott A. Kaukonen anchor staff writer Balance. The Kalamazoo College women's basketball team arrived in town Wednesday evening, sitting in an unexpected MIAA second-place position. They brought with them Laura Behling who was on the verge of becoming the MIAA's all-time leading scorer. She added 22 points to her total against the Dutch, but she and her teammates lost. Balance. Albion came to town Saturday with a e'S" center, Susan Lang, who hurt the Dutch inside scoring 30 points. But she and her teammates left the same way Kalamazoo had a few nights earlier. Bala ru e. Despite a squad that resembles a M-A-S-H unit, con-
sidering the number of crutches, wraps and braces. Coach Terri McFarland has molded together a baianced attack, dangerous inside as well as outside, not depen dent upon one person. This past week, the Dutch prepared for a pair of their biggest victories, edging Kalamazoo, 69-62, and smashing Albion, 87-57. Against Kalamazoo, the Dutch beat the Hornets out of the blocks, breaking to a 10-2 lead in the opening minutes. After a pair of K-zoo buckets, Hope spurted again. An 11-2 Dutch run which was capped by a Kristen Roeters layup after she had faced a K-zoo player twice at the other end gave the Dutch a 21-8 advantage. Some sloppy play late in the half let the Hornets stay in the game, but the Dutch still entered the locker room with a comfortable
In the Crease
BILL, M E E N G S The big news all week long has been the proposed trade of Detroit Red Wings forwards Bob Probert, Petr Klima and Adam Graves to the Edmonton Oilers for centerman Jimmy Carson and forward Kevin McClelland. Though the trade has not been completed yet - and possibly has been scrapped altogether - it has some rather interesting points for both teams. Edmonton's coach and general manager. Glen Sather, has always been known for his ego. Sather considers himself the best coach in the league but has recently been threatened by the emergence of Jacques Demers and his Red Wings. The proposed trade could be the result of Sather's ego getting the best of him. Sather remembers the way Probert dominated the Oilers in the playoffs last year, and probably figures that he can do what Demers has been unable to do, keep Bob Probert from getting into trouble. This is not to say he couldn't. Sather has a reputation of taking in troubled players and getting them to produce. But Probert also has a reputation of finding ways to get into trouble. Bv also aquiring Petr Klima in the traue
Sather would inherit another problem player who is the main avenue to most of the trouble Probert gets into. The one advantage of acquiring Klima would be that he likes to play the "run-and-gun" style of hockey favored by the Oilers. By including 20-year-old center Graves in the deal, Edmonton would get a promising young center to replace Carson. The Wings were reluctant to part with Graves for those exact reasons, but they were told they had to include either Gaves or veteran defenseman Lee Norwood. Since Norwood has emerged as a leader of the Detroit defense, they decided to include Graves. It should give some indication of how far Klima and Probert are in the dog house, however, when the sticking point in the trade is a 20-year-old rookie, or an unheralded veteran defenseman. I think Detroit should pursue this deal. By trading Probert and Klima they would rid themselves of their two biggest headaches in past seasons. True, they would lose a promising young rookie, bu^ they would gain Carson who 'M been in the league 2 ^ years .nd is a genuine superstir.

When the smoke Scoring leaders were Roeters had cleared and the weapons The addition of Carson would be a good move for the Wings as it w o u l d g i v e t h e m two dangerous scoring lines to go along with their checking game. Carson has scored 41 goals already this year and was a 50 goal scorer last year. He has made it no secret he'd like to play in Detroit, since he grew up in nearby Grosse Pointe. By acquiring Carson, the Wings could also lighten the load on Steve Yzerman who has been averaging over 30 minutes a game this season. Yzerman has been double shifted and plays on both the power-play and penaltykilling units. By having another scoring center, the Wings could ease up on Yzerman One problem with the deal is that players like Probert and Klima can come back to haunt you if you trade them. But neither is really helping the Wings right now anyway, so they might as well be traded. Another problem is that Probert has said he doesn't want to leave and that he'll do whatever the Red Wings want him to do to get back on the team. Probert says he doesn't believe his drinking is a major problem and that he wants to stay in Detroit because that's where his family and friends are. These are exactly the reasons why a trade would benefit the Wings and Probert himself. Probert is generally described as a nice guy with a drinking problem. Trouble is, Probert doesn't see himself as having a problem. His friends generally don't help him much either. Getting Probert drunk is something they consider fun. Other times they'll buy Probert a beer just to be nice, /s change in scenery may be just what Probert needs to get his life back together.

Disney (14), Nienhuis (12), Warriner (10), and Vandenberg (10), all hit double-figures. Disney dished out 9 assists and Nienhuis added six, Vandenberg, Robin Schout and Heidi Carigon controlled the boards with 6, 5 and 5, respectively Hope now turns its attention to Calvin on Wednesday night in Grand Rapids.

On the Write Track: Is your writing reader-friendly? Have you ever been on the outside of an inside joke? I'll bet most of us have occasionally had the frustrating experience of trying to carry on a conversation with others who seem to delight in knowing something we don't know. The incomprehensible giggles and mysterious meaningful glances are just maddening, aren't they? Sometimes well-meaning [)apers give their readers the jame lost feeling. The writer seems to know what he or she is alking about, but the reader sn't being given a clue. Hey, Hope WritersI We've spent a lot of time, money, and effort leaning the things we have to write about in our paper assignments. It's worth a little extra care to make sure our readers (such as PROFESSORS) aren't alienated by our style before they give our expressions of wisdom a fair chance. Last time in this column Kristi wrote about how easy it is to
write by computer. Wouldn't it be a shame to use a user-friendly computer to write a paper that wasn't reader-friendly? Consider the audience for whom you're writing. It's nice when we are told directly who our audience should be, but professors don't always state it so clearly. It's tempting and often true to think that they know more about the topic than we do, but this doesn't mean we don't need to explain anything. The professor could have checked out a library book on the topic, but instead he wants to know your response to it. Don't write as if the reader is totally ignorant, of course, but give her a chance to really understand what you have to say. No two people will find exactly the same meaning in a given source. When writing a paper you have a unique opportunity to share your unique viewpoint with someone else. Even a strict research paper is your own compilation of the facts. Take advantage of the chance you're being given and

make sure that the reader won't miss a single key part of what you're presenting. Imagine you have to rate two people after interviews. The first person was obviously intelligent but insisted on talking at you and over you, referring to supposedly impressive things that were never clarified. The second per son was also intelligent and proved this fact by identifying with you, the interviewer, and talking directly to you with well-chosen words and clear illustrations Which person would gain your greatest respect and the better ranking in the long run? I can't guarantee you perfect grades if you simply follow my advice, bu I do know that writing to your audience in a reader-friendly style is an excellent way to achieve writer-friendly results!
Donna, Two months ago, we pledged our love to each other as you accepted my proposal of marriage We've shared this news with family and friends.
