Greek pledging kicks dramatic presentation and poetry off with excitement

Women's Week highlights:

Burrows displays joys, pains, hopes of women by Nicole Meuller staff reporter Audiences at the Knickerbocker were treated to a rich and deeply moving tribute to women as actress Vinie Burrows performed her one woman show, "Sister, Sister!" on Monday, February 22. Drawing from the works of such figures as Sean O'Casey, Carl Sandburg, Sojoumer Truth, and * Winnie Mandela, Burrows relives ^ ^ moments in the lives of nineteen different women, displaying for her audience the joys, pains, hopes, and burdens faced by women throughout the world. Burrows began her show with an invocation to goddesses from all walks of mythology, and an appeal to women: 'There are more than two billion women in the world. Can they come together in friendship and peace...saying sister, can we hold hands?" From there she assumed an amazing variety of personae: an Irish woman pleading for her dying child; an African woman perplexed with Western customs ("What is this clock? Time is not stupidly broken up like that. When we are hungry, we eat."); an

Abruzzi woman, relating the struggle of giving birth—all with only a stool and a veil for props. At times, her performance was painful to watch, as it was when she re-enacted the brutal rape of a thirteen year-old girl in 4 The Rape of Dona." She balanced the pain with humor; a woman, speaking on "Liberation," said "You, a man, ask me, a woman, what you should do about women's lib? Wear a dress." Each character, through its diversity, offers tribute to the strength of all women. Her most valuable asset is her voice. Burrows speaks like she sings, her mellifluous yet strident voice lingering over the vowels and filling the auditorium. It cracked and wheezed for "an oF hillbilly woman," took on the youthful tones of a child abuse victim, slid in accent from broad British to Irish to Italian, and each time rang with authenticity. No newcomer to the stage. Burrows has been performing for five decades, beginning with an appearance on Broadway in 'The Wisteria Trees." She was inspired to create the seven one-woman shows in her repertoire in response to a paucity of "quality roles for black women" and has since performed on over 4000 college campuses as well as tours in various countries. In honor of her

Vlnle Burrows acting achievements. Burrows has received the Actor Equity's Paul Robeson Award. Burrows's final piece, "Detention" by Winnie Mandela, spoke not only for women but for all people struggling against oppressive circumstances: "I got my courage from the knowledge that I was never alone...that I belonged to the great family of human beings, and that my struggle is the struggle of all for dignity. Because once the mind is free, the body will be free." As long as Burrows continues to dramatize the lives of women, that freedom will continue.

Harjo brings heartfelt poetry to campus by Nicole Meuller staff reporter Acclaimed author Joy Harjo was the featured speaker for the 1992-1993 Meyer Lecture, giving a poetry reading entitled "Remembering the Earth." Haijo, a member of the Creek (Muscogee) tribe, is the recipient of the 1990 American Indian Distinguished Achievement award. The reading, sponsored by Opus, was held last Thursday. For her most recent volume of poetry she was awarded both the William Carlos Williams Award from the Poetry Society of America and the American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation. When introducing Harjo, Foley Schuler ('93) described her poetry as "music that comes from the heart and speaks with the voice of her people." Haijo writes poetry rich in natural imagery and color:

the "silver soul" of the crow, the omnipresent red of life blood. She deals with subjects close to her heart, from the forced relocation of the Creek Indians to her daughter's "coming of age" in "Rainy Dawn." Particularly compelling was the poem "I Give You Back," a poem dealing with the speaker's fear." You have gutted me," it read, "but I gave you the knife. Come here. Fear I am alive, and you are so afraid of dying." Haijo's life seems inextricably intertwined with music. She plays saxophone with a band, "Poetic Justice," that she says plays "a tribal jazz reggae mix, with elements of rock." At the age of four Harjo recalls "being moved by Miles Davis' trumpet;" later in life, she was inspired to write a poem in honor of Charlie "Bird" Parker. This love of music comes through in her poetry, which moves in rhythmic, flowing cadences and could be sung as well as spoken." To survive is sometimes a leap into

madness," Harjo said in one of her poems. In "Metamorphoses," Harjo's "autobiographical prose" details her own struggle between survival and sanity growing up Creek. She relates how many young women at the school for Native Arts she attended would often mutilate themselves in an attempt to cope with their own inner anger, grief, and frustration. When speaking of her youth Haijo said, "Childhood is the time of the ripest imagining, the time in which the world appears as large as it is. All artists draw on that time for its pure color and pure sound. Haijo's poetry combines that pure color with a sense of history and of wholeness to create art that, even in its anger, "honors all of us, our souls, and our struggles." The next poetry reading is scheduled for April 8 and features the writers Ellen Bryant Voigt am Mary Stuart Hammond.

O

by Dirk Joldersma features editor The campus is abuzz with the excitement of new pledges and the smiles of others watching them. Rushing has concluded, and pledging began last Friday. Reactions to rushing and pledging vary from student to student. So many people are involved in the events of the two-and-a-half weeks, though, that the responses to it become even stronger. The Greek system offers unity and friendship, a tempting offer to many, many students. "Rushing was just so fun to do," Tuwanda Williamson ('95) said. "It was so social. There were so many groups of people that I just wanted to hang out with." But this friendship is also perceived as unnecessary by many nonGreek students. Keith Zoulek ('96), did not rush because he wonders "What would be the difference? We've already made our friends. 1 guess some people just want to get into it. Others don't." Other students question the friendship in other ways. One student explained why he didn't rush by saying, "I'm an athlete. Fraternities promise brotherhood and friendship, but I get that from my team-mates. Why would I go through weeks and pay money for the same stuff I already have?"

Many students rush more from curiosity than anything else, and are then attracted by what they discover. Scott Patton (495) is representative of this group of students. "I was really anti-Greek my first semester," he said. "But I decided to look for myself. I looked around for a little bit, then really focused on the Centurians." Williamson approached rush in a similar manner. She explained, "I didn't want to be sorry later, so I just thought I would see what was there. Some of the stereotypes just didn't turn out to be true." The Greek system inspires great unquestionable loyalty from its participants. Williamson told of "all kinds of Greeks, not just from the sorority that I'm pledging, who came up to me to wish me luck." And all of us have seen the pledges walking together, arms linked. Rushing and pledging inspires conflicting responses from all students. Summing up, one student reacted to the Greeks like this. "Why would you put yourself through all that crap, just so somebody will be your friend. What's up with that? I guess, though, that some people do need that kind of group identity." On the other hand, like Patton said, a Greek often thinks, "It's great. Unity and prioritizing are taught by pledging. You really learn what is important to you, and how to sacrifice," he said.

Thinking Ahead Stephanie Grier

NEWS OF INTEREST

Public Interference of Freedom Is there anyone who has not already heard every argument ever raised on the subject of abortion? It is certainly one of the most widely debated issues in America today; forevery statement there is a rebuttal, for every demostration there is a condemnation. Even in this issue of The Anchor there is a piece advocating the choice of life, and next week there will likely be a letter from a student on this campus who disagrees. The fingers of this debate touch everyone. Into the flames of this fire comes the unmarried pregnant woman. She is certainly well aware of the arguments before her, and probably even has an opinion of her own. However, for her the issue is no longer philosophical orremote. Itisareal,painftil choice which must be quickly made and which will affect her for the rest of her life. As if the decision itself were not already heartrending enough, this woman must know that whatever she elects to do will cause her to be condemned by some group, if not directly from an outspoken individual, then through the propaganda which this group distributes. If she chooses to continue her pregnancy, then she will be faced with terms like "wasted life" and "if only this hadn't happened, you could have led a successful and happy life independent of care and worry for this unwanted child." However, if the woman elects to

end her pregnancy, she will suffer not only her own guilt but that which is heaped upon her by the emotionladen propaganda of the pro-life movement. Any guilty woman who hopes to quickly put the experience behind her will be quickly squashed when she turns on her television and sees advertisements made by the Arthur H. DeMoss Foundation. Imagine that you are this woman, or that you are her partner. Assume that you both decide to end the pregnancy and then imagine how it would feel to walk through a valley of demonstrators who are waiting for you at the door of the clinic. Do you feel violated? Is your decisionmaking any longer your own personal affair? It is unceasingly amazing that such an emotional and personal decision has been turned into a political and media nightmare. It is also terribly unfortunate. Could you make a logical decision about your own future in the midst of such a cacophony of opinion and demonstration? When did the decision, which used to be so personal, become public property? The same is true of the assisted suicide issue. Imagine that you are the family member of someone who is terribly ill and who insists upon death through the help of one Jack Kevorkian. First, you must come to terms with your own grief and feelings about this issue, and then you must explain it to the members of

the press who come knocking at your door demanding to know why this happened. Forget the funeral. Forget your own loss. Yourfamily's decisions are now public property. How can we as Americans allow this public interference into private issues to continue? We value our freedom, and yet we allow the freedom of many of our citizens to be infringed upon as their decisions become community property. If every one of us had to deal with one of these catastrophic issues ourselves, chances are that there would be a great deal more sensitivity on the part of our public. It doesn't matter whether or not you think the person was right or wrong in their decision because chances are that he or she doesn't really know either. The place for debate is in the government, where something can be done about it issues like these without interference into the private lives of individual citizens. March on Capitol Hill. Lobby in Congress. But don't punish the people who are either making these choices or who are already trying to put such a decision behind them. Guilt-filled television ads and endless questions and interviews by the press will not make these issues go away. Only responsible, senstive handling through the appropriate channels can rid the nation of these issues and settle the debate once and for all.

Impact of NAFTA debated at Hope by Rob Harrison staff reporter Last Friday Hope hosted a conference on the North American Free Trade Agreement. The question on everyone's mind was the effect of NAFTA on the economy of the U.S. and particularly Michigan. Will free trade stimulate the economy or cost jobs? The conference opened with the presentation of papers analyzing the agreement. Arguing in favor of NAFTA was Dr. William G.Moller, Jr., a professor of business administration at the University of Michigan. Dr. Frederick R. Strobel, professor of money and banking at Kalamazoo College, argued against it The question is not whether trade is beneficial, but how much trade is good. Trade in general is good for countries because of comparative advantage. What this means is that different countries are better than others at producing various goods. For example, when comparing Mexico and the U.S., the U.S. is better at producing high-tech goods such as telecommunications equipment. Mexico, by contrast, is better at manufacturing such things as glass products. Because of differences like

this, trade leads to lower prices. The overall effect of the agreement should be to add jobs to the economy. The reason is that, as Dr. John Lunn, a Hope professor of economics, pointed out in his response to the papers, the U.S. is a capitalintensive market while Mexico is a labor-intensive market This means that manufacturers in this country tend to use more labor-saving devices where Mexican plants tend to rely heavily on people. FOT example, American workers usually use power tools where Mexican workers would use hand tools. As Stephen Beckman, an economist with the United Auto Workers, put it, Mexican workers are MacGyver, using whatever is available, while American workers are Batman, with a tool for every occasion. This means that firms which produce goods that require large amounts of capital should benefit from NAFTA while firms which produce goods that require large amounts of labor will probably lose out to Mexican competitors. The effect of NAFTA on the first group will be to add 90 million new potential customers. The second group will either adapt or go out of business. For the Michigan economy in

particular, the industry of primary importance is the automobile industry. Most economists feel that NAFTA will help this industry. As more jobs are created in Mexico, Mexicans will have more money to have such things as American cars. Since Mexico is not dropping tariffs on Japanese cars, U.S. carmakers will have an advantage. Some are concerned that U.S. manufacturers will relocate to Mexico. This is unlikely because of the low productivity per wage dollar of the Mexican worker. J. Kermit Campbell, president and CEO of Heiman Miller, noted that plants in Mexico are far less efficient than plants in this country. The risk of Michigan losing many jobs to plants in Mexico is low. In the end, some Michigan workers will lose their jobs because of NAFTA. No one denies that. However, if these people can be retrained for more high-tech jobs, then the damage done by the agreement need not be great. On the plus side, it will give Michigan companies 90 million more people to buy their products. More consumers usually means more sales, so in the end, and on the whole, most economists believe Michigan wins with NAFTA.

NEW YORK The World Trade Center was rocked by an explosion on Friday, Feb. 26, believed to be a car bomb. Five people were killed in the blast, and over a thousand were injured. An FBI report indicates that the bomb consisted of as much as 1500 pounds of TNT. Although no group immediately claimed responsibility, speculation has turned to mid-eastern terrorist groups. Iranian, Iraqi and Libyan groups are among the chief suspects. BOSNIA The United States began its relief efforts in the former Yugoslav Republic, dropping leaflets and food supplies into Bosnia. This is the first time that the United States has intervened in the conflict, which is fueled by ethnic hatred. TEXAS Four officers of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms were killed this weekend as officers attempted to raid the headquarters of a religious cult. The cult possesses automatic weapons, and after repulsing the officers' initial attack, engaged the officers in a standoff. The officers were searching for guns and explosives. SOMALIA Fighting intensified between rival clans, as the U.S. increased its efforts to pacify the port of Kismayu. Three Somalis died in the fighting. The U.N. is preparing to take command of the Somali operation, and some U.N. forces are already in Somalia.

Hope Habitat for Humanity created by Nicole Mueller staff reporter Plans are in the works to open a Hope College chapter of the international organization. Habitat For Humanity. In so doing, Hope students will join 650 projects throughout the U.S and lOOchapters worldwide in providing "a decent house in a decent community for God's people in need." Habitat For Humanity International is an ecumenical Christian organization that builds homes and sells them at cost to those who could not otherwise afford housing. The average home in the U.S. costs $35,000, a sum which is paid off by the family in small monthly payments. In addition, homeowners put in a minimum of 300 hours of work on their own home and assist in the building of other Habitat homes. Funding for the organization comes entirely from volunteers and private donation; no government aid is accepted. The dependence on volunteer support makes the need for a Hope chapter all the more crucial. "Our objective is to help the local chapter," said Jason Kooyer ('95), student representative for the Hope chapter. Helping involves fund-raising and publicity, as well as actual physical labor on the ten houses the Lakeshore Chapter hopes to build within the next five years. As well as building homes. Habitat For Humanity builds community. "One of the reasons we're doing this is to better our relationship with the Holland community," said chapter president John Nowak ('95). "We want to promote awareness in the community that Hope is not just

a place where students go to study and party. By helping the community, we hope to show that we do care about what happens in Holland." Habitat For Humanity was founded in 1976 by Linda and Millard Fuller, a couple from Montgomery, Ala. At the age of 30, Millard Fuller had amassed over $ 1 million in personal wealth and ran a successful marketing corporation, yet had failed to achieve that same level of success in his personal life. When their unfulfilling lifestyle drove Fuller's wife to leave him. Fuller realized it was time for a drastic change. In an effort to make their relationship woik, the couple decided to devote their wealth to improving the lives of others, and thus Habitat For Humanity was bom. Since then. Habitat For Humanity has grown and spread to 33 countries, giving new lives to the economically disadvantaged. The organization has gained further recognition by the worldwide community through the work of former President Jimmy Carter, who is now a member of Habitat and devotes much time and energy to building homes and raising funds. Habitat's greatest contribution is not the homes themselves, but the true Christian experience of giving and receiving. "You don't know how powerful it is to see the look on the faces and in the eyes of people who know you're building a house for them out of the goodness of your heart," Nowak said. "It's unbelievable. Everyone's soul is bettered." Open meetings for H o p e ' s chapter of Habitat For Humanity take place Wednesday nights at 6 p.m., in Chapel room B-15.

WIO works to educate the Hope community about women's issues by Dirk Joldersma features editor Integral to the success of Women's Week, is a campus group that works toward educating people about the role of the woman in our society, the Women's Issues Orga-

nization. Women's Issues is a group of approximately IS students that organize activities to promote awareness of the woman in society and who gather regularly to discuss these issues. They are primarily interested in

educating members through discussion-oriented weekly meetings. Recent topics have varied in nature from the informative, like a recent session focused on women's health, to the political, this fall the group analyzed presidential positions on women's issues, and even to a so-

cietal issue, like sexual harassment, Amy Poel ('93), student leader of WIO, characterized the group as "fairly self-oriented," but also emphasized the outreach programs initiated by the group. They sponsor several activities throughout the year to raise awareness of gender issues

on the local and global scale, Vinie Burrows, keynote speaker during Women's Week, was sponsored and funded by the Women's' Issues Organization. They also organizedandsponsoredarecentpanel

Letters to the editor

Suggestions to nurse an "ill" chapel program Dear Sander DeHaan, Thank you for your letter to the editor in last week's Awc/zor. I agree that something "is terribly wrong!" with an average chapel attendance of less than 1% of the students. To be honest, when I attend chapel a share your feelings of sadness. I miss the sense of unity that chapel used to give me at Wheaton College. Thereabout two thousand students would gather for worship and encouragement. In fact, some of my best memories of Wheaton came from chapel. Unfortunately, chapel at Hope is quite different. In fact, sometimes I'm discouraged by chapel, i.e. Dan Korem. I also agree that compulsory chapel is undesirable, so how can we increase chapel attendance? First, Idon'tthinkpoorchapel attendance necessarily produces a poor chapel service, but a poor chapel service will necessarily produce poor attendance. Therefore, no amount of organization or advertisement is going to

improve chapel. If students wanted to, they would come; if they don't want to come, then their presence at chapel could actually detract from the service. During our talk you encouraged me to come up with some specific suggestions for improving chapel. I offer the following with the goal of both improving the attendance and the service. 1) Community hour: change the class schedule so that students have a free hour every MWF. They could then eat lunch or attend chapel. 2) Graves chapel: the regular chapel is too large for twenty people to worship with any amount of intimacy. If the numbers grow, move to the DeWitt theater or back to the chapel. 3) Lengthen service: forty minutes might be about right for a quality service. 4) Offer variety in worship: have designated days for different worship styles. 5) Get college community in-

volved: a) continue to encourage students and faculty to give the meditations, b) start a worship band that gives college credit, c) ask the theater department to put on a short passion play, d) ask the dance department for a liturgical dance program, e) and continue to tap into the students creativity. 6) Bring people and programs in: speakers, music groups. Christian scholars, etc. 7) Most importantly: find a person or group that is willing to make some changes. I offer these as suggestions, and I would like to hear other students' suggestions. Unfortunately, change is always threatening, but I feel that the only mistake we could make is not to change chapel. Chapel is ill: either we should shoot it, or we should try to nurse it to health. Whichever happens, I hope we don't allow it to continue to suffer. Sincerely, Kevin Lamse ('93)

Transportation to Winter Fantasia lacking Dear editor, I am writing this letter as a complaint to the lack of promised transportation to Winter Fantasia. When my date bought our ticket to Fantasia he was not offered transportation and knew nothing about needing to sign up for transportation because it was not well publicized. He thought you showed up at a designated time and were taken to the event like every other shuttle

that has been offered. When I called the day of the dance after I discovered that he had not signed up, I was told that transportation was not being offered because only one couple signed up. I never saw anything that said transportation plans would be cancelled if too few people were interested. I think that if an organization offers a service, such as transportation to one of its ever* », th^n ;t

has been worthwhile and significant for Hope College. For this the Women's Week Committee should be applauded. To achieve the rich diversity of programing, the committee gave leadership to various organizations on campus to help them set the agenda. This way, no single organization was left doing all the footwork and many people from varying perspectives had input into what Women's Week became for Hope. In a nutshell there was something for everybody. The program included: an acclaimed poet reading, a Dutch art exhibit, tips from a financial advisor, a talk from a pro-life feminist, a slide show about a women's group trip to Honduras and comments from a professor about expanding our image of God. Probably the biggest downside to Women's Week was the low attendance at a couple events at the beginning of last week, in particular Reverend Christine Sackett's (71) talk. She spoke last Monday about food for the poor and her experiences in Jamaica. She highlighted her difficulties as a woman in the ministry. This lack of attendance is really a shame because the few who were there felt Sackett had a lot to share. This was a real loss to the those students who may have otherwise benefited from her talk. There probably has not been another program at Hope in a long time which has been as diverse and challenging as Women's Week was this year. The organizers and contributors ought to be proud and feel good for having pulled off such an event. Perhaps next year the tradition will continue and Hope will again be challenged by another event as rich as this year's.

should follow through on its promises even if it means skipping a bus and using a car because only one couple needed the service. I am very angry for the way this was handled and the lack of responsibility that it shows. Sincerely, Leah Merz ('95)

• For clarification: An item in the Constituent Reports for the Feb. 11 Student Congress Minutes published in last week's (Feb. 24) issue of The Anchor has stirred questions. The foreign students who may have felt denied the services of the Career Planning and Placement Center were isolated incidents and the result of misunderstandings. The students did not have Green Cards allowing them to work outside Hope's campus. The Anchor regrets any inconvenience this unclarity may have caused. • For correction: In last week's Fantasia story (page 7), the after-dinner murder mystery act was "Mysteries on Campus" not "Murders on Campus" as printed.

Walton earns $150 at Forensics tournament

The Hope College Forensic Association continues to place well at tournaments. Treasurer Jeff Walton C93) earned a $150 scholarship for his third place finish in Persuasion at the Rock Valley College (Rockford, IL) "Land of Lincoln Speech Tournament" Feb. 26 and 27. After three preliminary rounds of competition on Friday, Walton and coach Sandy Alspach, assistant professor of communication, joined three other top speakers ar.d their coaches on Saturday as guests of the Winnebago County Bar Association Foundation, sponsors of the scholarship competition, for a luncheon and final competition. Six local attorneys evaluated the four orators on depth and quality of research on their chosen topics, strength of their arguments and speaking skill. Walton argued that a Citizens for Reliable Statistics lobby should work to influence legislative action tocentralize the United States system of collecting statistical information. Walton's "break" to the finalist circle comes hard on the heels of a sixth place finish in Persuasion at the Central Michigan University invitational, Feb. 19 and 20. Walton, and Reed Brown,assistant coach for the Hope team, made the trip to Mt. Pleasant to compete in four events besides his premiere event. Persuasion, including Impromptu Speaking, Prose Inferpretation, Poetry Interpretation, and Rhetorical Criticism. Walton will lake these five events into national competition at the Pi Kappa Delta National Tournament March 17 through 20 at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA. Also scoring for Hope at the Rock Valley tournament was Kari Liljehom ('96), secretary of HCFA, who brought home the fifth place trophy in Impromptu Speaking. Besides Impromptu, Liljehorn competed in Oral Interpretation (mixed genre) and Informative

Speaking. She will take Informative and Impromptu to the PKD Nationals. Although both Walton and Liljehorn were entered in the "Novice" category at Rock Valley, for speakers in their first year of intercollegiate competition, their preliminary speaking ranks were high enough to send them into final competition at the varsity level. Alspach, Director of Forensics at Hope, was thrilled with Walton's scholarship win and both speakers advancing to the finals. "It's especially sweet to be able to display finalist trophies from Rock Valley in the Communication Department window." Trent Wakenight, HCFA president, competed in Persuasion, Informative, Impromptu and Prose. He will replace the Prose event with an original After Dinner Speech to Entertain for the PKD National tournament. Susan Adkins completed her qualifying intercollegiate competition rounds for Pi Kappa Delta membership by performing in Dramatic Interpretation at Rock Valley. Walton and Wakenight will represent Hope at the Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League's (MISL) state novice championship tournament Friday, March 5 at Oakland University. The first place winner of a $500 scholarship, Michael Butterworth, represented Northern Illinois University. Matt Luecke, second place $250 winner, was from North Central College (Naperville, IL); and Sarah Detling, fourth place $100 winner, was from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. On Monday, March 8 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in Lubbers 109B, the spring term ''Showcase of Champions" will feature the PKD National team, as well as other members of HCFA, in a demonstration of intercollegiate competitive speaking events.

As I read the Bible lately, it seems to talk a great deal about life. I read of Jesus calling Himself the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I see Him tell us to believe in Him and have eternal life. I read discussions of what that life means. And then I think of an older passage, one of Moses' sermons to his people. He declares to them, "I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life, so that you and your descendants may live." Choose life. What does it mean? The papers have also been full of this question lately. My home state of Washington almost passed a euthanasia referendum a year ago. I leave home and land in Dr. Jack Kervorkian's backyard. He speaks of death with dignity and insists that his patients have the right to decide when they will die. Death is a basic right, he says. What does it mean to choose life? Do we even want to? 1 turn on the news and it tells me of the latest Supreme Court decision on abortion. Randall Terry calls it a victory. NOW calls it a setback.

What are we fighting over here? Women choose whether their babies will live or die. Some choose life. Some do not. The law says this is their right. Choose life. Do we want to? What is life anyway? I guess your answer to that depends on whom you follow. The world around us seems to think that our lives are a product of chance. We came from apes, who came from other mammals and so on back down the line. We are products of a process of evolution which happened to have reached this point on this particular planet—there is no God but Chance. It's all a roll of the dice. 1 realize I am probably oversimplifying, but I think I have the gist of it. What I want to ask is this: In such a worldview, does it make sense to choose life? If our lives are more or less random happenings, what are they for? The answer I find is that they are for us. We have them and we have the right to do whatever so long as it doesn't hurt anyone. If life is enjoyable, we continue in it. If not, why

not give it up? Or if we don't want that child, why not spare ourselves the problems and spare it the hurt of being unwanted? Why choose life if it is only for our own benefit? It doesn't make sense. The other view is that we are God's creations, made in His image. He has made us for a purpose. Men and women, old and young, sick and healthy, we each occupy our place in His plan. We do not exist for ourselves alone, we exist for God. In this view we have no right to decide to end our lives or the lives of our unborn children because they do not belong to us but to God. Why choose life? Because God gave it. So where do we stand? Do we view life itself as a great good, something we must protect? Or is life only worth protecting when it is good? Does quality of life outweigh life itself? We should protect both as far as we can, of course, but when all is said and done, where do we stand? We have the choice of life and death before us and we must choose. Choose life?

Meat For Your Mind Greg Brown After considering the events of Women's Week '93 and in respect to the fine speakers and organizers who have made every effort to broaden the horizons of our minds this week, I'd like to provide some meat for your mind. It's hard to chew, and perhaps some will think it rotten, but it will make you think, even if your only thought is that I'm not to be read ever again. If you are drawing away already, I ask you to consider the power of words in your life. As college students, we traffic in the value of words in that we attempt to show what we know as well as to hide what we do not know by the words we choose. In the rivers of papers that we write each semester, words are the water in which we float our thoughts, and sometimes we gain refreshment through kind words of encouragement scratched in our margins. Just as an occasional kind word of a professor can be our light of encouragement, words can also shut out our light and darken our self-image. Every day that Tomas can remember since his fifth birthday he has been harassed by his father. Some days he is only verbally assaulted by the sharp, cruel tongue. But most days he is physically intimidated to the point of tears. Yon all know the story—it's told in about fifteen seconds on T.V.'s public service commercials—"you're a piece of worthless crap, you never

do any thing right, I wish you were never born !" Remember the commercial? We understand the potential power of words and in turn we understand the power of story. Stories read to us by our mothers and fathers often live on in our memory for all our lives. But as we grow up we read different stories, stories that have power, stories that scared us. Among these stories are all types— some are fact, some are fiction, some are poetry, some are biblical, and some are a combination of all the criteria mentioned. Stories, in just the history of the United States, have been the cause for much controversy involving what should be read and what should be burned. The controversies number in the hundreds because we, as a society, know the power of words and thoughts in texts that is to be read or shared verbally. Many times the bans on specific literature have been enforced to protect our Christian society from a contrary or evil ideal that threatens our society. But, (here's the meat for your mind), how can we justify any such action when our provincial text is interpreted for the purposes of oppression? Do you think that the Bible is no longer used to oppress people as it did natives of this hemisphere? What is the nature of this oppression? Words and stories are the nature

of this oppression. Heard every Sunday, ingrained into the minds of some children is the nature of the relationship between man and woman. More often it is a message of fault in the fall, fault in temptation, fault inherent in every member of the sex that is not male. When we tell our daughters and sons that they are morally different on the basis of sex aren't we asking for trouble? The stories we choose to tell our children tell them more than we think. I hope that most would not tell their kids straight-up "men are just better than women." But through these stories —not just the Bible— we tell them that women are weak, that women can't succeed without men. Do the stories we are telling our children limit their vision? Do we show them examples of failures in women only to encourage what we already think? Can we give our children a Bible that broadens their view of the world? Can we give them stories, in general, that make them aware of their possibilities and do not limit them? Rotten or not, here is some meat for your mind; take it as a challenge to give your children stories of success in male-female relationships. But, most of all, take it as achallenge to live an example of equality and respect towards the opposite sex— little eyes see long before they read.

As I Was Saying Mellissa Endsley "Slow down-Xife is longer than you think" —Life's Little Instruction Book I tried to remember this advice as I drove back to school after winter break. I drove back from my hometown of Lansing on Monday morning. You may recall that we got a lot of snow over winter break and that the roads were both snowy and slippery. I thought of this advise while my dad was warning me that the driving would be bad and that I should be especially careful while driving back. 'The most important thing is that you get there safely," he said, "so take your time and slow it down." While he was telling me this I was like "Yeah, OK dad, sounds good, whatever"—-but my mind was somewhere else. I mean I was nervous about driving back in the snow and all but I was more concerned with making it back in time to type up a paper for my 1:30 class. So I started my trip driving about 55 mph. It was slippery, but I was doing OK. Then about 25 miles into my trip I saw a big truck slide off the road into a ditch in front of me. That was when I decided to slow down. Looking back to that day, I can honestly say that I feel like an idiot. Why is it that even though everyone and everything told me that it was unsafe and that I ought to slow down, it took a rolled over truck in a ditch for me to get the point. It made me think of all of the other times when everything in a situation had told me to be careful and still I waited for something bad to happen before I really got the point. Like the time my boyfriend in high school took me out to dinner and said that he really needed somebody to talk to about something. We sat through the whole meal and he hardly said

two words. So, I figured impatiently that he had nothing to say so after dinner when we were just sitting there I said "We better go so we are not late for the movie" when what I should have said was "Hey, what did you need to talk about?" Or the weekend before Christmas break when I went home and my mom wanted me to stay until Sunday afternoon so I could go with her and my dad and get our Christmas tree. On Friday I told her I would stay, but then when I woke up on Saturday I got nervous about all of the stuff that I had to do back at school, and told her I had to leave on Sunday morning. I ended up leaving her with anger, hurt feelings, and one less person to help trim the tree. Why do I do things like that, you know? Like why did it take my boyfriend yelling "God, Mellissa will you listen to me?" in a public place before I took the time to sit down and connect with him? Or why did my mom have to practically start crying for me to realize how important my going with her was. It just seems so wrong. So let this be a lesson not only to me, but to everyone who has left five minutes early to beat the traffic, neglected to return a socalled unimportant phone call, or skipped over the introduction because you "already know all that." You may be right. You may know everything already. Then again, you may be all wrong. Yoi may not have a clue. So just slow down for now. Pay attention. Don't wait for your car to slide into a ditch.

Academy Awards: Movies up for Best Picture not up to snuff In many respects the Academy Awards remind me of the Miss America contest. When Miss Kansas (or whoever) gets crowned, the audience is supposed to believe that she is the most beautiful woman in the United States disregarding the taped breasts, cosmetic surgery, swimsuit superglued to her butt, and internal politics that may have gotten her there. By the same token, when the Oscar is given to the winner of the Best Picture Award, the audience is supposed to believe that this is the best movie of the year disregarding the fact that internal politics, famous actors, and a plethora of other reasons may have gotten it there—not the film's merits alone. Before you plop down any of your hard earned cash for any of this years nominees, think twice, or maybe three times. What should be the most entertaining films of the year are kind of like Geraldo's attempt to find the treasure in A1 Capone's vauk—disappointing to say the least. If you do decide to sit back and watch the Academy Awards this year, just keep in mind that everything you see is not necessarily what you get.

Left Off Center Sarabeth Robie The Unforgiven Robie Rating: * First of all, the movie that I think will win the award for best picture is The Unforgiven starring Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman, and Clint Eastwood. I think it will win not because it is the best of the field, but because Eastwood has never won an Academy Award. So what? I mean the "Hey Vem" guy on television never got one either, and you don't hear him complainin', do ya? The main thrust of the movie is that a reformed gun fighter avenges the slashing of a prostitute in order to get money to raise his kids better. In the process of killing off the slasher guys, he becomes a bad guy again. Frankly, gratuitous violence is not my thing, so it might just be that I don't understand this film... then again it might just be that it really sucked big fat hairy Chihua-

hua. Scent Of A Woman Robie Rating: ***1/2 Another movie up for the Oscar for best picture is Scent OfA Woman with A1 Pacino. A1' s character was a crotchety old military man who goes into the big city for a weekend of debauchery dragging the kid his niece hired to "sit" him, in tow. I liked the movie, with the exception of the ending. The ending was big time lame and kind of shot the integrity of the film all to h-edouble-hockey-sticks. Nevertheless, it was kinda nifty—at least no one was blitzed away with a sawed off shotgun or anything. There isn't much more that can be said about this film. It is simple, yet it is moving. Howard's End Robie Rating: **1/2 Howard's End is set in England and stars Helena Bonham-Carter,

Emma Thompson, and Anthony Hopkins (the Silence of the Lambs dude). One of my family members called it 4lA two hour masterpiece theatre rehash." This pretty much sums up the flavor of the flick, although 1 feel that the performance by Emma Thompson was the exception to that rule. I didn't hate this movie, I simply wished it hadn't tried so hard to be artistic. It was similar to watching Jan Brady try to outdo Marsha when we all knew that no matter how hard she tried she would always be the nerdy little Brady chick that couldn't quite ever do better than her older sister. The reason thatA Room with a View (one can't help but make the comparison) was so impressive was that it was content to just tell the story and didn't leave viewers with a strained feeling. A Few Good Men Robie Rating: * 1/2 This brings us to A Few Good Men

starring Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon, Tom Cruise, and Jack Nicholson. It really should have been titled Top Gun 2: The Courtroom Challenge. In the beginning of the movie it is very apparent that the main character is going to have a challenge because of the ghost of his father (hmmm... this DID happen in Top Gun, didn 'tit Nay—m ust have been my imagination). The guy really is good enough to overcome, he just has to be convinced by a good woman (geez. This ALSO happened in Top Guny didn't it?). Only problem is, the woman is portrayed as a bimbo and a half. I mean she was worse than Rhonda the "USA Up All Night" chick. The guys constantly told her that she was stupid and she laps it up like a dehydrated puppy dog. Some people are of the opinion that Jack Nicholson really is the

Pepsi (Pistons Chattenge 7

by Amy Seibert staff reporter As they stepped through the doors of the Palace of Auburn Hills, some students could not help but take a breath in awe. "I was used to seeing games in a big gym, but the Palace was just huge," said Heidi Schilder, one of 100 students from Hope, Calvin, and Adrian colleges who went to see the Detroit Pistons take on the Philadelphia 76ers. As a part of their Pepsi-Piston challenge. Creative Dining Services sent 25 winners to the Palace for the February 23 basketball game. Students who won the trip included Jason DeVries (94), Jason Ruckert (94), Renny Abraham (95), Malt Lenger (96), Jason Gibbs (95), Ryan Kreidcr (94), Kim Ebright (96), Tom Wilkins (95), Ross Bush (95), Jeremy Monty (96), Jeff Majzel (95), Andy VanDam (96), Kari Essex (95), Ryan DeBoer (95), Ben LaBarge (95), Meianie Parks (96), Wayne Anguilm (96), Eric Wolthuis (94), Heidi Schilder (96), Dave Nicholson (96), Lynn Smith (96), Chris Kaplan (96), Meg Abfall (96), Duane Bosma (96), and Yolanda Carter (94). On the bus ride to the game, students had many chances to win even more prizes. Pepsi

products such as visors, squeeze bottles and frisbees were given away and everyone received a "Hope Pepsi-Piston Challenge" t-shirt. Students also received bags filled with candy and Kletz coupons. Before the game, students had the opportunity to be courtside to watch the 76ers up close while they warmed up. The excitement continued as they witnessed the victory of the Pistons, who won with a score of 101-89. Jeff Majzel was especially happy about the outcome of the game because he won the "guess the final score" contest with a prediction of 10190, only one point away from the actual score. His prize was an autographed picture of Dennis Rodman, which may prove to be valuable because the game that they saw was the last game Rodman would play as a Piston. After the game, all the colleges got together for some pizza in the stands and students were given "scratch and win" cards to win autographed photos of other Pistons. Schilder found the trip to be well worth her while and a lot of fun. "I'd never been to a pro game before, so 1 thought it was neat," she said. If you think the trip sounded like fun, there's still hope. The event has been such a success in the past that CDS plans to do it again next year.

After swimming an undefeated season, Hope College's swimming and diving teams swept both conference trophies at the MIAA championship in Kalamazoo College this weekend, leaving the competition in their wake. The men's team churned out 658 points while the women tallied up a score of 639, blasting main contenders Kalamazoo and Albion to capture first place in 17-of-20 events. Their win records their second consecutive league crown and the 12th in 14 years and the second highest point total in MIAA history. Though the Dutch were favored to take the championship, their achievement was no cakewalk. "They wanted to win this very badly but it was a struggle every morning," Coach John Patnott said. "That was the challenge to rise above." Pleased with the team' s results, Patnott admits he was somewhat concerned the team's mental edge was slipping. Those headed for nationals were ready for action, he said, yet remained distant during training for the K-Zoo meet. But the team didn't disappoint, pull-

cJtamfct*M4/Ufc ing together to support one another on deck and gaining momentum in the pool, setting personal bests and stealing several MIAA records. Freshmen Kristen Moving bolted from the block to break national champion Shelly Russell's record in the 1650 meter freestyle with a time of 17:31.88. In addition to capturing the gold in the 1650, she won both the 200 and 500 freestyle races. Dawn Hoving ('94) matched her sister's haul, winning three gold metals in the 100-yard, 200-yard butterfly races and 200-yard individual medley, setting league records in both fly events for the third year. In the 100 yard freestyle, Denice Masselink ('96) touched out teammate Jennifer Noorman ('94) by four-onehundredths of a second and an Albion swimmer by a tenth of a second for a time of 55:22, earning her the gold. Masselink also won the 50-yard freestyle. Though Calvin's Jenn Cole led the 200 yard breaststroke, Monica Bullard ('94) pulled out a first, catching up in the last two lengths, squeaking by Cole with a 2:34.73. Cole, unable to hang onto her lead, missed the slot with a time of 2:34.75. Michelle Mojzak ('96) overthrew

MIAA records, winning the 100-yard and 200-yard backstroke events, placing her in a consideration slot for nationals. Masselink, Dawn Hoving, Kristen Hoving and Noorman led the 400 freestyle relay with a time of 3:39.59, whom Patnott called "the four fastest sprinters in the conference." In the men's competition. Kirk Assink ('95) let loose and pushed his way into nationals, swimming the men's 1650 in 17:31.88, a MIAA record. Meanwhile, in lane five, unrested defending 1650 champion Steve Hope ('95) fended off two hungry Kalamazoo swimmers and competition from Albion, touching them out at 16:32.65. Saturday morning at the preliminary meet, backstroker Keith Nycamp ('96) broke into nationals with a 1:53.22, later to swim the same event again in the afternoon and achieve a 1:54.22 against former high school teammate Mike Lubbers of Calvin who had edged him out him earlier to win the 100 yard backstroke title. Senior Jon Hescott finished out his MIAA career by winning the 50-yard and 100-yard freestyle races each for

Sidelines Todd Jungling

The void is no longer... Void—it's so poignantly defined in our English language as "a feeling of want or hollowness." Ever since the Hope College basketball season came to a screeching halt last Friday evening I have been experiencing this emptiness, this hollowness, this void. It's a feeling that I just can't seem to shake. You see, last Friday marked the end of an era for me. For the last four years I have had the enviable pleasure of experiencing, first hand, twelve Hope/Calvin basketball games. It's difficult, if not impossible, to describe the immense intensity and emotional exhilaration of a Hope/Calvin game to someone who hasn't experienced being awakened out of deep R.E.M sleep by a blaring alarni clock at 6:00 in the morning in an effort merely to get a ticket that reads "general admission," or to someone who hasn't experienced sitting on the hard wooden bleachers in the Holland Civic Center for over three hours before the opening tip just to get a decent seat. It's like trying to describe a sunset to someone who is blind or trying to describe the sound of water splashing upon the sand to someone who is deaf. But what 1 can tell you is this: the Hope/Calvin rivalry sure lived up to its billing. This rivalry is to Division III what Michigan/Michigan Stale is lo Division I or Boston/LA is lo the NBA. After watching my final Hope/Calvin game Friday nighl (as a student, at least) my mind began to wander. I began to wonder (this brings new meaning lo the Vesper song, "I Wonder as I Wander...") why in the world I am about lo embark upon a career in accounting—wouldn'ljoumalism, or more specifically, sports journalism be more fun. On ihe one hand you have debits, credits, itemized deductions, and in-subslance defeasance. On the other hand you have basketball, meeting up and coming sports stars, and free pop at half-lime. It's like choosing between doing home-

work and playing tennis. During the game on Friday I happened to be sitting at the media table next to one of the sports writers for the Holland Sentinel. He was also obviously rooting for Hope. (At this point I have to confess that although I sat at the media table, my account of the game is far from objective.) After trashing Honderd for a while we engaged in meaningless chatter. (As a sidenote, is it me or does it always seem that whenever Honderd "mugs" a Hope player driving to the basket for an easy deuce a whistle is not blown or a foul called...if Honderd were on the streets of Detroit, however, doing the same thing, he'd be stopped, frisked,and held for questioning.) Coming from this seemingly meaningless chatter with the Sentinel writer was a voice within me that whispered something like this: Hey Jungling, since you love Hope basketball so much why don't you do something about it? Just because you're graduating from Hope with a degree in accounting doesn' t necessarily mean you have to give up what you love most—which in my case is being a sports addict, a sports junkie, a sports writer, if you will. Maybe I will pursue a profession in accounting. Maybe not. Maybe I will pursue a profession in journalism. Maybe not. There is one thing I am totally sure of, though. After four years as a student here at Hope there will be no more Elliots, no more Collys, no more Wades, no more Hondos, no more DeMasses, and no more Mesecars. But 1 wouldn't trade the time I have spent watching Hope basketball for anything. So don't be surprised if next year you see me at the Civic Center rooting for the Boz, Duistermars, and the next freshman phenom. Who knows, perhaps I'll even be at the media table in a capacity other than that of the Anchor sports editor! Perhaps I'll even be in the locker room for post-game inlerviews after we defeat those Knights from Calvin. The void is no longer...

A season on the brink

The 1992-'93 Men's basketball season

by Doug Mesecar guest writer (Editors note: As the Hope College basketball season drew to a close this week, I asked senior Doug Mesecar to give his impressions of the season. So here is the storyfrom Doug's perspective.) The finale of this year's season of hoops came to a resounding finish on Friday against, of course, the Knights of Calvin. Though the defeat was at the hands of this most contested rival, it was, after all, a fitting finish. Although I speak for myself for what I am about to say, I do feel that if Hope had to bow out, then it should do so to no less worthy of an opponent than Calvin. To say that one has lost to the previous, and possibly future, national champ is more of a consolation than losing to a flash in the pan that has no shot in the Big Dance. Additionally, there was one more positive that can be taken from this author's last Hope/Calvin battle; and that has to do with the title of this article: A Season on the Brink. If there ever was a game in which the Flying Dutchmen were on the brink of finally succeeding, instead of just missing, this seemed to be the game. But like the rest of the season, Hope

came in a close second. This is not a negative portrayal of the year or of the particular game. Instead, it is a fitting description that summarizes the fortunes of the 199293 squad. Looking back to the start of the season is similar to recalling the most exhilarating roller-coaster ride of one's life. Jekyll and Hyde hold nothing over this team. What this means, and what it has to do with a season on the brink, is that we were always on the very brink of making that step into the big leagues, but just couldn't follow through with that picture perfect goose-neck. Perhaps as talented as any team in recent history, the 92-93 team lacked a certain combination of elements that have marked past year's successes. What this particular missing link was, I don't know. What I do know is that we had great highs, but equally great lows. From game to game, from half to half; heck, even from minute to minute, noone, including myself, could predict exactly which team would show up. Frustrating? Yes. Exciting? Yes. Successful? Not always. We will not be remembered as the best, nor the worst, team in Hope hoops history. Falling somewhere in the vague confines of good but not great and knowing the unreal-

ized potential that was this year's team is knowledge that is hard to deal when a season, and a career, have come to an end. So what then, was the point of this season on the brink? What can I. or anyone on the team, point to with pride and joy? A lot. Besides the obvious: two tournament titles, an outstanding record (18-8). which are substantial. what? The answer lies in those hard to describe qualities known as camaraderie, team work, companionship. Adversity builds character, and let me tell you. this team has its fair share of characters. Seriously, though. I can say that the lessons and friendships learned and earned from experience and hardship will last longer than any award. Yes.it is that somewhat ambiguous quality that athletics can give to a person that was the most significant "success" of 1992-93. To those of you who haven't participated in athletics, or haven't had the kind of up and down season I have been attempting to describe, the best illustration I can think of is one that is borrowed from Coach Van Wieren: "Never surrender. Never give in. Believe with an almost cocky attitude that you can succeed where no one gave you a chance to. Never. Never. Never."

FUN FACT; Many of today's materials are the result of accidents. Rubber, for example, a key compound in many types of sporting equipment, was pretty useless at first. It had roughly the properties of chewing gum. It was an accident which lead Charles Goodyear to the discovery of the vulcanisation process, a process which has resulted in the ability to produce rubber that has the properties we find familiar. 8 The Anchor March 3,1993

'The season came and went so quickly...' by Shelly Visser guest writer (Editors note: As the Hope College basketball season drew to a close this week, I asked senior Shelly Visser to give her impressions of the season. So here is the story from Shelly's perspective.) It's hard to believe that four years have passed. Each season has gone by quickly, especially this past one. Basketball has been a part of all of the seniors' lives for so long. It seems strange to think that it is all over. There were four seniors on the Hope College Flying Dutch basketball team this year: Jamie Crooks, Candi Kalman, Katie Kowalczyk, and Shelly Visser. Each one of us learned a lot over the past four years, both about basketball and about life. We are all going to miss it very much. Although our record wasn't the

greatest, I still consider it a successful season. We all learned a lot this year. Each one of us improved as the season progressed. This year's team was quite young. It was a team which consisted of the fourseniors,onejunior(SaraChase), six sophomores (Kristin Carlson, Nikki Mannes, Anna Pomp, Kuirsta Campbell, Alyssa Postmus, and Vonda Evers). and two freshmen (Kari Nysse and Shelly Kuyers). We are looking forward to having the majority of our team back again next year. While each person held an important spot on the team, there are two accomplishments which stand out: Katie Kowalczyk established a new school record by making 49 three pointers in one season and Kristin Carlson was tops in the MIAA, both in field goal percentage and rebounding. The team also had a lot of fun this year. We were able to go to Florida

over Christmas Break which was a really good time. When you spend about 60 hours on a bus with 17 people, you really get to know each other well. Our trip was a time of togetherness and memories, which really helped us to grow as a team. Not only is this an end for the four seniors, but it also maiks the end of Sue Wise's coaching career at Hope College. In the fall she will be enrolling full time at the Western Theological Seminary and she will also be getting married on August 8th. We appreciated having Tod Gugino as our assistant coach this year, and we look forward to having him back again next year. This year's seniors would like to wish next year's team the best of luck. The team would like to thank the students, faculty, and parents for their support and encouragement throughout the season.

WIO Continued from page 2 discussion wilh college gays, an activity that an estimated 300people attended. Locally, Women's Issues will sponsor a "Take Back the Night" march on April 13 at6p.m. that will protest the failure to provide adequate safety measures for women during the night. Although the group now has only female members, they don't turn men away. "Its tough for a guy to ioin because of the name," Poel said.

"Gender issues are not a real priority for most men." The mission of the group is focused lo deal with issues particularly relevant to women yet are also pertinent lo men. "Even though the issues are nol really women's* issues, but are human issues, the group attracts women," Poel said. "We're organized to strengthen women—not to leach men," she said. There have been males who have

joined the group in the past. In fad, Poel remembered a time when the group was led by a male:female team. She said the group remains congenial and openly accepts regular male attendance. The Women's Issues Organization meets regularly in their room in the basement of Dimnent Memorial Ohapel. Meetings are held Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m. for those interested in attending.

Hope College will sponsor its 21st annual Model United Nations Conference on Thursday and Friday, March 11-12, with more than 900 high school students from approximately 40 high schools participating. Acting as delegates from 179 member nations of the United Nations in two General Assemblies, seven Security Councils, one International Court of Justice (ICJ), and two Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Commissions, the students will be taking part in a simulated exercise focusing on international issues. Some of the issues to be discussed include Iraq nuclear power, the crisis in Somalia, the conflict in the former Yugoslavia, disarmament, free trade, and a case involving Libya, the United States and the United Kingdom and the bombing of Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Model U.N. is designed to give high school students an opportunity to take on the roles of professional diplomats with the goal of achieving a particular country's national objectives while fostering a desired international consensus for real solutions to questions facing them. The event is sponsored by the department of political science at Hope. Attending students have been working with their high school advisors for several weeks to identify the current issue positions of coun-

tries they have chosen to represent. During the conference they will share the knowledge with their peer delegates, working towards solutions to international problems. The ECOSOC, Security Council and International Court of Justice (ICJ) members begin their sessions Thursday evening, and continue all day Friday. The General Assembly members arrive Friday morning and debate the remainder of the day. Hope's Model U.N. is organized by students in a political science course aimed at the understanding of international politics and the UnitedNations' role in international disputes. The students serve as session chaiipeople and perform other administrative tasks throughout the formation and execution of the event. Co-secretary generals of this year's Model U.N. are Michele Barkman ('93), and Laura Wilson ( 93). Craig Monette ('95), is the high school coordinator. Craig Ikens ('95), and Bill Sikkel ('94), are the General Assembly directors. Security Council directors are Christina Nielsen ('93), 111., and Sarah Reedy ('94). The director of ECOSOC is John Jobson ('95), and the director of ICJ is Dan Brady C95). Dr. Annie Dandavati, assistant professor of political science, is the faculty advisor for the students. —Hope College News Service

the same thing as sex—and it's not, is it?" Everyone seems to be talking about "the secret." If you haven't seen the movie don't let people discuss it with you, unless you don't plan on seeing it in the future. If you do see it, don't try to anticipate "the secret" just sit back and let the plot take you where it may. WARNING: for those who are not open minded—this movie is not for you. I have one friend that thought this movie was an IRA (Irish Republican Army) thriller, and was really let down because it didn' t turn out to be that kind of movie. Try to leave your expectations behind because they will only serve lo disappoint you.
