ALUMNUS, PARENT DISCUSS COLLEGE-AGE EATING DISORDERS Last week eating disorders was a hot topic on campus. On Feb. 20 Stephanie Thorton ( ' 9 2 ) spoke at Chapel about her experience with anorexia nervosa and bulimia. Jeanne Lindell, staff counselor, introduced Thorton by saying that out of the 1,000 students sitting in chapel, 100 females and 50 males have an eating disorder. On Feb. 21 Doris and Tom Smeltzer shared their testimony of having a daughter who died of an eating disorder in their keynote address entitled " A n d r e a ' s Voice," held in Maas Auditorium. Lindell said that a "handful of students seek counseling at the counseling center for eating disorders."

STATE REPUBLICANS PLAN RETURN TO POWER Kurt Pyle SENIOR STAFF W R I T E R

Tucked into a comer of Lubbers Hall, amidst shelves of books and boxes of materials, the faces of a revitalized Republican party have gathered. Young and old, they came to this meeting to begin a process that they hope leads to the return of Republicans to power. And Hope College is to be an important part of that push, according to Michigan Republican party chair Saul Anuzis. Anuzis visited Hope's campus Wednesday as part of a two-day, 15-college tour designed to drum up support among college students for the upcoming campaign season. At the informal discussion in front of a small audience, Anuzis spoke about the energy surrounding this off-year election. "People smell blood," he said. In this respect, many Republicans feel the numbers arc on their side. Recent polls by Strategic

Vision and EP1C/MRA show Granholm's approval rating hovering around 50 percent, with more than 60 percent of residents in the state saying Michigan is on the wrong track. These numbers, combined with recent numbers showing that Michigan businesses are planning to hire fewer college graduates than last year, provide an opportunity to win college votes, according to Anuzis. "These are devastating numbers," Anuzis said. "Essentially, a majority of college graduates are looking for jobs out of the state." Republicans are confident that businessman Dick DeVos is the right person to challenge sitting Governor Jennifer Granholm on these issues. "We have the anecdotal evidence on our side," Anuzis said. "People know people who have been laid off." Considerable unrest surrounds the state's S E E

International students hosted the International Food Fair, an annual ethnic food smorgasbord, last Saturday to benefit local Holland organization Latin Americans United for Progress. International students, American-bom students with overseas experience, and friends manned about 16 tables, which bore a plethora of student-prepared ethnic and country-specific dishes and desserts. Rice pilau from Kenya and Nepali chicken curry were among the six main dishes. Brigadeiro from Brazil, Japanese Zanzai, and bakllava, prepared by Albanian student Dori Peku ('07), represent a few examples of the desserts students offered the community. "I think the intemational students are doing an awesome j o b , " said Habeeb Awad, intemational student advisor. "They represent their countries very well to faculty and staff through [this event]." 300 to 500 people from Hope faculty, staff, and the Holland community availed themselves of last Saturday's food fair, donating $5 for tickets, which went to purchase "tastes" of food from the tables. Additional tickets were sold for 500 each. The event, organized by the S E E J A S J E

DEMOCRATIC CHAIR ADDRESSES FAITH AND POLITICS Jenny C e n c e r SPORTS EDITOR

NDC Chair Mark Brewer

In an effort to break down polarized parlies, Hope students and govemment officials made the first step towards proactive dialogue Tuesday night. A leader of the Democratic Party, Mark Brewer, participated in an open forum with Hope Democrat members and advisor Professor Eliot Dickinson, Western Theological Seminary students and representatives from a political consulting firm. Safe from circuitous debates both stu-

dents and national officials had the opportunity to discuss the proper role of faith, politics, and the public square. The Democratic Party guests began the dialogue by describing their interactions with the Christian faith as well as how politicians interacted in the office. As director of religious outreach for the Kerry campaign and president of C o m m o n Good Strategies, Mara Vanderslice explained her experiences as a Christian in a political office. "It became clearer and clearer

to me how difficult it was to be a Christian involved in progressive outreach," Vanderslice said. "The Democratic Party has a problem with people of faith, and we need to do something about that," Brewer said. Brewer is the chair of Michigan's Democratic Party, president of the Association of State Democratic Chairs and Democratic National Committee Chair. They described how the Democratic Party is striving to correct the imbalance of faith in politics S E E

THE THOUGHTS THAT LIE UNDER HOPE Erin L'Hotta EOITOR-IN-CHIEF

Yesterday, the world ended Israel should be wiped off the map. At least, this is what Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejap said. Nuke 'em. Blow them out of the water. Eliminate the Holy Land off the face of the earth. Shortly after this statement was made at 4t A World without Zionists" convention. Bush shook his finger, issued a warning to Iran. He insisted America spend a week in prayer for this terrorist leader. Plea that God pursues democratic justice upon Iran; lift supplication after supplication for the abandonment of nuclear war. W h o knows if prayer can save us. The end o f the world has indeed, already begun. I sat in Senior Sem last week. We talked about change, complexity and Christianity with Professor Portfleet. She stood in front of the class, sighed, and said, " T h e end of the world is coming." Nuclear war will have us at our best. It will throw us out of our homes, out o f our minds and into the sewers. W h o ' s to know w h e n each of us will die? When Grand Rapids will be gone? Can we utter understanding o f the existence of peace? Experts say that twenty years from now, threat of nuclear attack will be a normative every day American fear. America's policies will be perceived as the underlying cause of overcrowding, underemployment and resource scarcity in Middle Eastern nations. These nations will harbor anger and we will are target territory. On Sunday, "The New York Times" revealed that Iran's nuclear chief established a "joint uranium enrichment venture" with Moscow and Tehran. It is expected that China will join forces as well. "Jane's Defense Weekly" magazine reported that Iran assists Israel's arch enemy, Syria, by providing them with chemical weapons. Together, the two nations will undergo a multi-million dollar project, in which Iran and Syria will set up missile-launching sites, test launch ballistic missiles while acquiring chemical weapons of mustard and nerve gas. And with a blink of the eye, Israel could be gone. International strategic experts believe Iran's nuclear weapons are changing society as we see it now. A s Iran explores nuclear weapons, they entice other Middle Eastern countries to do the same, moving closer and closer towards nuclear war. The question is, w h o is going to stop them? The foreign ministers of France and Spain gave their two cents, speaking against Iran. But what political power do these voices exhibit within the reality that Israel is about to be wiped out, and America is faithful to Israel and the question is not if, but when America will be bombed? O f course. Professor Portfleet said all these things to shake us out of bed. As is the same reasoning I use as 1 write this now. Yes, this is overstatement, and yes this is life and change and complexity, and who knows about Christianity. I think the world, as we know it, is weeping in fallen humanity.

website, www.gracelee.nel. The second movie, playing from March 6-17, is titled "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress." Set in the early 1970s China during the last stages of China's Cultural Revolution, two teenagers from the city, Luo and Ma, are sent away to a backwards mountainous region of China for Maoist re-education. The boys are forced into manual labor, and watched constantly by the zealous village headman. Since the two boys are educated, they are able to outwit the headman. On an assigned trip to a larger village, they fall in love with the daughter of the most renowned tailor in the region, whom they lovingly call "The Little Seamstress." The two boys then happen upon a suitcase filled with books that had been banned by the new government of China, but instead of throwing them out, they read them to this girl in a secret hiding place that only the three of them know about. The girl loves the books and she slowly gains the couragc to leave the village she grew up in and strike out on her own. "A poignant lyricism runs through Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress that transforms this story about love and culture into a cinematic poem," reported hollywoodreporter. com. Tickets for films at the Knickerbocker are $6 for regular admission and S5 for senior citizens, and may be purchased at the door.

Awad highlighted the level of planning that the student organizations put into the event, citing communication between the groups, invitations and advertising throughout Holland as tools that were used to make the Food Fair successfully happen. Not only [do they] become involved in the c o m m u nity, but they get to become leaders," he said. "[The international student advising] office always encourages international students... to explore, not only themselves, but also United States culture and people. International Food Fair allows that to happen," he said.

Proceeds this year went to LAUP, a local grassroots organization that works to serve the local Latino community. Last May, L A U P hosted an all-day fiesta in the Holland Civic Center to celebrate Hispanic heritage. "Having international students take ownership, they not only come to Hope College, they become involved in Hope and the Holland community," Awad said.

Last night, I spotted my soul mate, a sassy tropical gal, jumping rope; and she even had twinkling eyes.

TASTE,

Sure! We have Lumberjack, Rye and Pumpernickel in the freezer! Enjoy your date!

How about you loan me some bread. Dad! I got a cute girl waiting for me!

Hey. cute stuff! Do ya wanna take me out, hmm?

K n o w i n g Nothing, Finally

Just in case you were thinking about it... To t h e E d i t o r : As I sip my provincial cup o f morning coffee, b u m my top lip, slip on random clutter and slam the door...I have just enough lime to adjust m y sweater, dash down the sidewalk, and catch my breath while realizing I left m y politics paper on my desk... inside. Sound familiar? Maybe you (like me) are experiencing the many j o y s of graduating, becoming a graduate of an undergrad program and wondering why they call it undergrad when you sure put in enough hours to feel over and done with. Late at night, nestled in the cave of the 8 ,h Street Basement 1 attend my Mortar Board meetings to discuss setting up committees and the agenda items for the week. We had reached the topic of 1,000 Wells (a fantastic, ongoing flindraising operation for a well in Kenya) when a little question of motivation fell on my head like my redundant morning routine, " W h y do we do what we d o ? " Simple question, complicated answer. So I decided to take it to my members and ask, with all the committees, clubs, activities, studies, etc. etc. etc. (!), why add one more thing to this pu pu platter of obligations? The comments were temporarily filling, but only served an appetite for more soul searching on

my part (and hopefully yours). After reading several answers, 1 thought of an obvious thread that seems to weave us all together as members of Mortar Board. We do community service projects and reach out to others because, due to a combination of factors, we can. Through hard work, love, family, faith, resources, country or other countless attributes, we are in a position, time and place, to help others w h o just need a hand. If y o u ' r e feeling disappointed that I am unable to offer you an earth shattering revelation, don't be. Being able to wake up, b u m your lip on coffee and maybe wind down your day carving pumpkins with local children-- the fact that you can participate in the "ordinary", is an extraordinary thing. When you enjoy the little things in life, and are able to share extra energy with others, do it. According to this simple wisdom, more people will have the freedom and can-ability (1 invented that word Mr. Webster) to offer someone else a leg up. For me, there is no better reason to do what I do. And Mortar Board is providing a wonderful outlet, and great community of friends to do what I do, because 1 can. Amy Lynn O ' C o n n e l l ('06)

At the start of 2 nd hour, one of my more verbose students aimed a wise-crack at me. "Are you teaching today?" she asked. I replied to the contrary, inwardly pleased that I would be spending the hour at the back of the room with my nose buried in Shakespeare. "Good," she quipped immediately, "because you don't know everything." Her j o k e reminded me of my disclaimer to the 2n,1 hour Advanced Placement students a week before, in regard to my grading of their timed writings. " I ' m figuring this all out, too," I confessed as we sat in a circle. "I don't know everything." High school is full of people who know everything. Just ask my 2nd hour, and they'll tell you how stupid God is. College is also stuffed with people who know everything, but in higher education we use different words to describe everything we know. "Political Science isn't real science." Oh, wow, I didn't know that. "Of course you didn't. You're not a real scientist." Society and history is full of "knowledge" that went Boink! "Weapons of Mass Destruction" and "War on Terror" are some big winners if you're playing Political Fluff-up Scrabble. Triple-word-score if you can win an . election by compartmentalizing entire regions, cultures, and religious sects into an "axis of evil!" But I digress. I can't go on what I know. I go on what they know. What everyone else tells me is true. I only dare tell them what I feel, what I think, what I'm inclined to believe; but often the persuasion stops there. I don't know the correct answer to the abortion equation, the homosexuality reality. I don't know if heaven exists; big surprise, but none of us have ever been there. Dealing with this lack of knowledge isn't that hard for me; putting up with society's fairy-tale of complete awareness, however, is. Faith must have been easy for our Biblical characters. Joshua didn't have to bargain with a conservative administration's foreign policy when he invaded his enemies' land. Elijah w a s n ' t up against the curriculum of a world religions class when he called fire down on his soaking altar. Jesus preached from the side of a hill, from the sway of a boat; many of the preachers and prophets o f today can't be pulled away from the microphone and the camera. The intimacy of faith has been lost in the commercial orgy of global media. I know nothing of life's questions and their infinitely elusive answers. A humorous jibe at this search for finality, found in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, sums it all up in the magic number " 4 2 . " Right now, as 1 finish surfing through the choppy waters of this liberal arts education, such an answer would be a breath of fresh air. But it would be a dangerous out, a cheap escape, from the noble calling of a life-long human journey. To know heaven, not as a place, but as a reality, would require ceasing to be human. To know the answer, a binding, uniting thread that runs through suffering and death and loneliness and ethical dilemma, would be like a piece of a puzzle trying to become the whole puzzle. To be human is to be in the dark. It's been that way since the beginning.

February's weather has been anything but predictable. Luckily, Hope m e n ' s and w o m e n ' s track t e a m s have remained indoors. This past weekend both teams completed their final indoor meet. Hope's indoor season began in February and included the Wisconsin Invitational, the Grand Valley Invitational, the G r a n d Rapids C h a m p i o n s h i p s and the Illinois Invitational. T h e indoor season gave t e a m s a chance to compete after the long winter off-season. Both Hope teams have shown strong p e r f o r m a n c e s in the track and field events. On the m e n ' s side, Scott Langille ( ' 0 7 ) w o n the pole vault with 14-6, while nine other D u t c h m e n placed in the top eight in their respective events at the Grand Rapids Championship. T h e H o p e w o m e n also s h o w e d strong individual p e r f o r m a n c e s at the indoor event. O n c e again the pole vault ended with Hope on top with Maureen Warfield ( ' 0 6 ) tying f o r first place at 11 -0. Other top finishes included Nora Kuiper ( ' 0 9 ) , fourth in 55-meter dash (:07.52); Mishelle Scott ('07), fifth in 55-meter dash (:07.61). Both teams will n o w travel south for their spring trip which will include the South Carolina Invitational and the Georgia Invitational. T h e Dutch compete in their first outdoor home meet on Wednesday, April 12 at 2 p.m.

^TRIATHLON CLUB: RUN, BIKE, SWIM Nick Hinkle STAFF W R I T E R

Triathlon is o n e of the fastest growing sports in the world and is n o w o n e of the fastest growing sports on H o p e ' s campus. During the past t w o months, the Dutchman Triathlon C l u b has begun to form and grow. Hope student G r e g Reznich ( ' 0 8 ) is the guy behind the scenes and has gotten the club pointed in the right direction. T h e first meeting w a s held a m o n t h ago to determine students' interest level on campus. T h e turn out was incredible. "I didn't k n o w what to expect, and over 4 0 showed. I am stoked about where the club could end u p , " Reznich said. It passed its first hurdle of b e c o m i n g an official club w h e n the 'idea w a s approved by the Extra - Curricular Activities Committee. After the meeting, the club's popularity became obvious w h e n two student m e m b e r s of the E C A C j o i n e d the club. During the meeting, the club's main purpose and objectives w e r e written into its constitution: T h e triathlon club provides students with an opportunity

to meet n e w people, m a k e new friends and stay in shape. " T h e triathlon c l u b is great. It's been a w e s o m e meeting new people w h o are interested in triathlons," Hope student Meghan DeWees ( ' 0 9 ) said. " I t ' s also been really helpful to have a solid group, all of w h o m are alF working toward the s a m e goal k e e p you accountable for working out and training." Also, everyone and anyone is encouraged to join. T h e ability and training level of participants ranges from triathlon veterans to student athletes to beginners. This diverse group of participants has already begun training together and is on their w a y to their first competition. O n e participant, Erin Mitteer ( ' 0 7 ) is ready for her first triathlon. "I am excited and glad that I can be with a great group of people as I prepare f o r it and even though it will be my first triathlon, I think it will be amazing no matter the end results," Mitteer said. " I ' m having a great time with the people w h o have showed already and the more the better," Reznich said. "If you like to work out, and need people to do it with, what are you waiting f o r ? "
