Gerhing Associates

Hope hires 'education specialists' Mar. 1 and 2 Hope welcomed to its c a m p u s , representatives from Fred Gehring Associates, a firm from New Hampshire. T h o m a s Renner. director of college relations, emphatically slated t h a t ' 'the firm despises the term public relat i o n s , " which implies that it's an advertising agency. Instead, the organization calls itself " h i g h e r education s p e c i a l i s t s . " This means that the firm dealTi exclusively with institutions of higher education, two dozen colleges and universities which range from Dartmouth and Kenyon College (Ohio) to the University of Southern California and T e x a s A & M . " T h e y make it their business to know the national media, especially tfie educational m e d i a . " Renner said. Being aware of that focus, the f i r m ' s

representatives will mention to publications such as The New York Times, that they know of a professor from a particular college or university that is versed in such a subject. In this w a y , the Times can acquaint itself with an institution such as Hope. The clients, in turn, receive national attention by being mentioned in an-article. Fred Gehring Associates claim that it's " t h e only business of its k i n d " in the nation. It regards itself as " t h e conduit (channel) between its clients and the m e d i a . " This marks the first lime the c o m pany has visited Hope. Representatives met with various faculty and student groups to get an impression of what Hope is like. President Van Wylen had heard of the firm through the Great Lakes Col-

lege Association to which Hope is a m e m b e r . Members of the Board of Trustees then met with representatives from the company in New York and upon Van W y l e n ' s r e c o m m e n d a t i o n , the full Board of Trustees approved the decision to hire the organization two months ago. The contract is negotiated on an annual basis by the Board of Trustees. Both V a n Wylen and Renner hope that the association with Fred Gehring Associates will be a long-term one. T h e firm's policy promises that " a n y t i m e you're not satisfied, let us k n o w . " Renner c o m m e n t e d that H o p e ' s relationship with its "natural constitue n c y " which includes alumni, parents, and the church, is healthy. He concluded the interview by saying that hiring this firm is " o n e more step in broadening awareness of the c o l l e g e . ' '

Voyager I spacecraft

Political intrique, a shipwreck, a blossoming love, and the intervention of the gods are all part o f the story of The Tempett. The complete tale unfolds beginning Mar. 23 in the DeWitt Main Theatre. Director Don Finn, along with Assistant Director Dan Huizenga, are busy preparing for this semester's o p e n i n g . S h a k e s p e a r e ' s The Tempest is a magical fantasy that takes place on the island-home of Prospero. a magician (played by Eric Fitzgerald). Other inhabitants of the island include a variety of creatures, recreated in numbers choreographed by guest artist Helen Kent; with dancers^Mike Areamendi, Joy Dulmes, Bill L a w s o n , Mark Leenhouts, Diane Nancinelli, Melissa Ortquist, S a m m e O r w i g , T o m Pierson, Moira Poppen, Catherine Tharin, and Terri Turpin; along with Ariel (Nola VanAlstine), the savage Caliban (Marvin Hinga), and the lovely Miranda, P r o s p e r o ' s daughter (Debbie Grimm). Intruders into the island world are the King, Alonso (Paul Daniels), his son, Ferdinand (Chuck Bell), and their companions Sebastian, the King's brother (Bob Schultz), Antonio, Prospero's brother (Dan Huizenga), Gonzalo (David Heusinkveld), Adrian (Scott Buehrle), Francisco (Don Hones) and the comic pair Stephano (Jon Smeenge) and Trinculo (Phil McCullough). Others in the cast include the s h i p ' s Master (Jammie Huggins), the Boatswain (David DeVette), and the three goddesses, J u n o (Ardis Kelsey), Ceres (Glennyce Russcher), and Iris (Elizabeth DeVette).

When the Voyager I spacecraft made its closest approach to the planet Jupiter Monday, a Hope engineering professor had more than a casual interest. Dr. Robert Norton, a m e m b e r of the Hope faculty since last fall, w a s responsible for assuring the structural integrity of the antenna which is sending back to earth pictures and other information about the largest planet in the solar system. Norton was a stress analyst with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif, at the time of his work on both Voyager I and Voyager 2. He joined the Hope faculty to head up an expanded program in pre-engineering education. T h e Voyager spacecrafts were launched Aug. 20, 1977 and Sept. 5, 1977, respectively, enroute to Jupiter, Saturn and beyond. T h e spacecrafts have already beamed back to earth spectacular pictures and -data about Jupiter. Jupiter is also transmitting the eerie whistling and popping sounds of space. These sounds, heard f r o m 4 0 0 million miles a w a y , are essentially sonic booms that are made by tiny particles racing from Jupiter toward the sun, according to Frederick Scarf of the T R W Systems, w h o heads the plasma wave experiemnt Tor the N a tional Aeronautics and Space Administration mission. T h e sounds are similar to thos of squealing car tires, wind whistling through a tunnel, and popping popc o r n . According to Scarf, the m a j o r sounds heard so far involve the solar -wind-—a stream of electrically charged particles that the sun continually flings

out in all directions. Jupiter's magnetic field acts as a shield that deflects the solar wind, producing shock w a v e s , and the sonic booms which Voyager is not picking up. N o r t o n ' s responsibility at the Jet Prppulsion Laboratory was to assure that the 12-foot diameter antenna could withstand t h e - p u n i s h m e n t of being launched. The 100-pound rigid antenna is the largest ever to be flown in the U . S . space program. N o r t o n ' s first task was to determine, through computer simulation, the structural integfity of the antenna, its m o u n t , and a c a m e r a platform. He then supervised actual stress testing of the equipment. Shortly after the launch of the Voyagers he knew his assignment had been a success as the equipment responded as expected. "1 was one of a team o f 4 , 0 0 0 people working on Voyager, but I get a feeling of great satisfaction each time I hear of its successful m i s s j o n , " said Norton. He and his family had the added excitement o/" viewing the launching of Voyager from Cape Canaveral, Florida. T h e 1,797 pound Voyagers each carry 11 experiments designed to study Jupiter and in 1981 the planet Saturn. Voyager could be directed on to the planet Uranus, 19 times farther f r o m the sun .than E a r t h . W h i l e employed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Norton w a s involved in stress analysis on other diverse equipment such as electric cars. W h i l e pursuing his doctorate at the University of Southern California, he did research on vibration j-esponse of a structure to an earthquake.

He recently completed a consultation for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on engineering dynamics of the Galileo spacecraft which is expected to land on Jupiter in the early 1980s. N o r t o n ' s arrival in H o l l a n d i a s t fall strengthens a pre-professional program Hope has offered many years for students w h o want to become engineers. In cooperation with several leading universities, Hope students can e a r n , within a five-year span, both a liberal arts education and professional engineering training. -Participants in these programs earn the b a c h e l o r ' s degree f r o m Hope and either a b a c h e l o r ' s or m a s t e r ' s degree in engineering f r o m the cooperating institution. These traditional p r o g r a m s , k n o w n c o m m o n l y as the 3 - 2 s and 4 - 1 , will continue unchanged. H o w e v e r , the presence of Norton and his new courses more fully prepare Hope students for their subsequent work at engineering schools. The t w o courses consist primarily of lectures, with practical experience gained through visits tb local industrial organizations and through d e m o n s t r a tion experiments. Sheldon W e t t a c k , dean for the natural and social sciences, points out that, in addition to better preparing students for engineering schools, the new c o u r s e s also give students e x p o sure to engineering at an early point in their academic careers. In the past, Hope offered no strictly for engineering courses. T h e r e f o r e , a student with interest in this profession had to wait until a f t e r leaving H o p e to c o n f i r m that interest through actual engineering coursework.

Yoss suffers attack in Dow The manager of R u s s ' eastown restaurant, Stanley G . Voss, collapsed Monday morning while walking around the track in the Dow Center. M e m b e r s ol the Health Clinic were summoned and administered CPR until the ambulance arrived. Voss was taken to Holland C o m m u n i t y Hospital where he died at 11:20 a . m . of an apparent heart attack. It was reported that Voss had recently undergone open heart surgery and walked around the Dow track for exercise to help his recovery. Voss, a lifetime resident of Holland has worked for R u s s ' for thirty years and was also a m e m b e r of the Board of Directors of R u s s ' Inc.

Impressionistic composers featured in chamber concert On Sunday, Mar. 11, at 4 p . m . , in Dimnent Chapel the music faculty will present the fourth c h a m b e r concert of this school year. This recital will feature the two m a j o r Impressionistic composers Ravel and Debussy, and will make use of both the Skinner and gallery organs. Bruce F o r m s m a and Roger Davis, associate professor of music, will open the program with the Baroque Aria by G. F. Handel and Aria for Trumpet and Organ by Jean Rivier. Davis will play the gallery o r g a n . C o m p o s e r Claude Debussy set out to compose a set of six sonatas for different instruments but completed only three. O n e of these six sonatas, the late Neoclassical Sonata for Violin and Piano, will be performed by Terry Moore, assistant professor of music and Joan C o n w a y , associate professor of music. Robert Ritsema, professor of music, and Davis will play Humoresque for Cello and Organ, Op. 92 by Joseph Jongen. This unusual combination c o m e s from the late Romantic period.

W A S H I N G T O N : President Carter promised Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau Saturday, he would accelerate U . S . plans for construction of the $15 billion Alaska highway gas pipeline. 44 I was reassured that President Carter insisted that there was a desire on the part of the administration it be proceeded w i t h , " Trudeau told reporters after a 90-minute White House luncheon with Carter. The U . S . official said the target date for completion of the pipeline, which could deliver enough gas to replace 500,000 barrels of oil a day, was late 1984 or early 1985. When the agreement was first drawn up in 1977, completion was scheduled for Jan. 1, 1983. The general enery situation of the two nations, both suffering from cutbacks in oil deliveries from Iran, dominated the brief meeting. NF'W O R L K A N S : Striking police returned to work Saturday, even before a scheduled vote on the city's final contract offer, and a city official said "the strike is o v e r " . But union president Vincent Bruno withdrew support for the city's contract offer during the rank-and-file meeting, casting doubt on prospects that the strike was in fact at an end, he said. The police were to vote on Mayor Ernest Morial's final offer at the Saturday evening meeting. Bruno said he would not endorse a contract in which ammesty was not granted for strikers. A T L A N T A : President Jimmy Carter has authorized aides to file plans for the formation of a committee to work

for his re-election, U.S. Rep. Elliott Levitas, D - G a . , said Saturday. Levitus, who was interviewed by Atlanta radio station W G S T , said he had been told by " t h e White H o u s e " Saturday morning that plans for the re-election committee would be filed with Federal Election Commission. He did not give any details regarding his source. T E H R A N , IRAN: Iran radio reported Saturday that there are fresh gunbattles between followers of Khomeini and left-wing "counterrevolutionaries" in the northern city of Tabriz. A m o b hacked three policemen to death in a southern town. in Tehran, the new Khomeiniappointed governor of the Central Bank said Iran would meet all its financial committments abroad and announced that in the future Iran would ban all charging of receiving of interest in its financial dealings, in accordance with Moslem law. The capital was calm Saturday after sporadic gun battles in the downtown area Friday. C HINA: Chairman Hua Kuo-feng reportedly told British Secretary of Slate for Industry Eric Varley in Peking that the Chinese will pull out "very s o o n " . The Japanese new service Kyodo reported that Hua gave similar assurances to Japan's ambassador, saying the troops would be withdrawn "at the earliest possible d a t e " . Other Japanese reports said Peking was planning to call a cease-fire, but the date wasn't known. Meanwhile, Vietnam called on its people to "achieve total victory " o v e r

Fulbright-Hays aid international graduate study One source for financial aid in pursuing an international education is through the Fulbright-Hays Program. These grants arc for those pursuing graduate studies. Hope students who will be seniors when the application deadline c o m e s up in Oct. may apply for consideration for awards to bo given in 1980-81. Fifty-three countries have offered their educational facilities to American students who will receive the grants available under the Fulbright-Hays Aet. The number of awards given out for the 1979-80 school year numbered 505. and that figure may increase slightly for next year. Students in nearly every field are eligible to receive full or partial aid. The applicant must be proficient in the language of the country he will study in. Usually a student will study two years of foreign language at the college level to attain an adequate level of proficiency.

Students applying for a FulbrightHays grant will be notified of their status in J a n . . 1980, with final decisions being made the following Apr. Although the deadline for applying isn't until Oct. Paul Fried, director ol International Education at Hope, stresses that long-range planning is impoitant. The applicant must be able to shov\ why he wants to study in a particular foreign country and he must also knou about the programs available through the institutions he is applying to. Preference will be given to those students demonstrating a political, educational and cultural awareness of the country he wishes to go to. Fried expresses a desire to see more Hope students apply for these grants. More detailed information on study abroad and the financial aid opportunities available can be obtained through the Office for International Education, located on the second floor of Voorhees Hall.

the invaders. There was no indication whether China would withdraw completely or attempt to hold on to 38 square miles of disputed border territory. M A L A B A , U G A N D A : Troops loyal to President Idi Amin crushed a small guerrilla force and regained control of the important east Ugandan town of Tororo, a border official and travelers reported Saturday. The victory eased the military pressure on the embattled Amin. Unofficial reports Friday said as many as 50 persons may have died in the daylong fighting, but this could not be confirmed. Uganda's official radio said Saturday that Soviet President Brezhnev had sent a "special m e s s a g e " to Amin. The contents were not disclosed, and some observers said this probably indicated that the communication was cool. The Soviets once were A m i n ' s major arms supplier, but relations have been strained in the past three years. The United States has no diplomatic relations with Uganda. W A S H I N G T O N : Carter advanced new peace proposals in his final talks with begin. A White House statement afteiMhe 90-minute meeting said the president "put forward suggestions designed to help resolve some of the outstanding differences between Egypt and Israel". The statement added that the Israeli prime minister agreed to "seriously study these suggestions and consult with his c o l l e a g u e s . " Begin's agreement to consider the proposals was the first positive development in his visit since he arrived Thursday and described the talks as in a deep state of crisis. Details of the proposals were kept secret, but Sen. Jacob Javits, who attended a White House briefing, said they were in the nature of "pragmatic g u a r a n t e e s " designed to build trust between sides. Israel may respond to the ideas as early as today or tomorrow.

Stadium too new to sport full schedule Although Holland stadium is expected to be completed by the end of Apr., it appears that its use will be somewhat limited for the 1979-80 sports seasons. The decision was made in a meeting involving city officials as well as representatives from Hope, Holland Christian High School and Holland High. Representing Hope were Gordon Brewer, director of athletics, and T h o m a s Renner, director of college relations. At the meeting, City Manager Terry Hofmeyer announced that the limitations were necessary to protect the field from possible overuse. The turf will not have reached full maturity by this coming season; however, careful grooming and regulated use will allow it to mature while still functioning as a gridiron. Those affected by the decision will most likely be both Hope and Holland High's freshmen and junior varsity teams. They will probably not be play-

ing at all at the stadium foi the first year. In addition, only some of Hope and Holland Christian's home varsity soccer games will be allowed. The only teams with full field privileges will be that of Hope and Holland High's varsity football teams. The council felt that any more use would only result in the same problem of excessive wear that has often dam aged Riverview Park's field in previous years. Also, as Riverview is iclieved of some of its excess use, it will be in better field condition to host those games not held at the stadium, as well as touch-football and othei sports de cided by Holland's recreation department. Although no specific dedication date has been set for the opening of the stadium, it is certain that it will be finished by Hope's season opener against Wabash on Sept. 15. This will also be the Community Day Ox-Roast.

Rehbinder to give talk on aspects of bio-engineering On Thursday, Mar. 15, Manfred Rehbinder, a professor at the University of Munich, will visit Hope to engage students and faculty in a discussion of bio-technology and bioengineering. Rehbinder, who has taught at the Universities of Frieburg, Zurich, and Ankara, and was research associate at U.C. Berkeley, draws from his knowledge of both law and sociology to discuss this complex topic. As a legal sociologist, Rehbinder will explore questions of gene engineering, transplantation, birth control, preservation of life, and the legal

problem of lengthening oi actively shortening the dying process, in a pub lie lecture during the Community Hour. In addition to participating in a number of classes on Wednesday afternoon, Rehbindei will also be available for informal discussion on Wed nesday, at a reception, hosted by the department of foreign languages and literatures, to he held at 3:30 pm m the Learning and Resources Center. Rehbinder was invited to campus b\ Delta Phi Alpha, the German Honorary Society, and is sponsored by the Goethe Institute of Munich, (iermain .

SAC brings British traditions

Unrestricted grant given by Sears The Sears-Roebuck Foundation recently presented Hope with a S I , 6 0 0 unrestricted grant, according to President Gordon J. Van Wylen. Each year the foundation presents unrestricted grants to selected, private, regionally accredited colleges and universities. The grant was presented on behalf of the Sears-Roebuck Foundation by Martin Glaser, manager of the Scars-Roebuck store in Holland. " W e count it a privilege to seek to interact with the citizens, and business and industrial firms in our city and to work with them in making our community a fine place to live and w o r k , " said Van Wylen.

Saturday night SAC held a British Pub Night as a coffee house alternative. Included in the evening at Vorhees Hall, was music, wassail and "munchies". Pictured here in traditional British garb and next to a table of food baskets are Fitch Hasbrouck and Sue Ward.

Make experience count Dar Topp Director of C a r e e r Planning and Development l " O n l y those with experience need a p p l y , " so many recent graduates feel the world of e m p l o y m e n t has slammed the door in their face. This difficulty is easily expressed as a Catch-22: you c a n ' t get a j o b without relevant experience and you can't get relevant experience without a job. While that statement is true to a point, many students fail to understand that "relevant exp e r i e n c e s " d o not have to be limited to paid, full-time, long term employment. Rather, most any responsibilities you have had can translate into valuable employment experience, as you develop marketable skills and abilities. Consider the following opportunities: Internships: Internships are a lot like the best of real jobs: you work hard on challenging projects and learn more than classes could leach y o u . The Chicago. Philly. Louisville. Washington semesters, as well as many programs developed between departments and local agencies and businesses, provide the Hope student with unique opportunities to get practical on-the-job experiences. (Resources: your advisor; c a m p u s program liaisons; 1978 National Directory of S u m m e r Internships*; Where to Look for Undergraduate Internships*).

Summer or Part Time Employment: S u m m e r always, means white-hot competition for j o b s , but a great number of special programs also bec o m e available. Both state and federal agencies in all geographic areas offer s u m m e r j o b s for college students, and many agencies and businesses recognize the special m a n p o w e r pool avail-

able from college campuses. (Resources: Summer Employment Directory*; Off Campus Jobs Office (Phelps); Summer Job Opportunities in the Federal Gov't*; Directory of Overseas Summer Jobs*; Guide to summer camps and schools*). V o l u n t e e r W o r k : While stuffing pickles at the Heinz factory may pay for next y e a r ' s tuition, a volunteer j o b may o f f e r much m o r e in terms of broad work experience and vital professional contacts. It is not unusual for such a volunteer position to turn into a j o b o f f e r . S o m e of the best opportunities c o m e from zeroing in on a place you want to work and offering your skills gratis, or contacting the local volunteer bureau. (Resources: Yellow Pages; Directory of Social Service Agencies*; Greater Holland Manufacturer's Guide*; Invest Yourself, A Nat'l Directory of Volunteer Opportunities**) Hire Yourself: From airport taxi services to raising earthworms to selling craft products or home baked goods, one way to gain valuable work experience while in school is to be your own e m p l o y e r . It m e a n s plenty of unpaid overtime, risk and assertiveness—but the skills you acquire w o n ' t go unnoticed on your resume and your business may translate into a full-time career e n d e a v o r . (Resources: On Your O w n * * ) . So the solution to the Catch22 of experience is obvious: if you 're a f r e s h m a n , s o p h o m o r e , or j u n i o r , tailor your part-time or s u m m e r j o b s , internships or volunteer experiences to be related to your occupational objective; if you are a senior, reflect carefully on your past experiences before you tag them as irrelevant. *available in Career Library, Raalte Basement **on order for Career Library

Clinic hosts health fair The Health Clinic is sponsoring a Health Fair on Wednesday Mar. 21. The fair will involve free testing, demonstrations and information in the Dow Center from 9 a . m . - 4 : 3 0 p . m . Sharon Blanksma, director of health services said, " T h e fair is mainly to make people aware of health services available in the c o m m u n i t y and to make them aware of health n e e d s . " The tests that will be available are; blood pressure, blood sugar (which requires fasting for two hours prior to the e x a m ) , pulmonary function, T B and Hemoglobin (for iron). There will also be a number of booths for information at'the fair. Saga will have a nutrition booth, there will be booths by the Michigan Poison Control Center, the American Cancer Society, the Alcohol Awareness C o m m i t tee and the Ottawa County Health Department. T h e Health Department's booth will have information on contraception and will be giving Rubeola (hard measles) vaccinations from 1 p . m . to 5 p . m .

Priority Ambulance will be giving CPR and life support system demonstrations. The Pre-Med Club is assisting the clinic with the fair. Last year the health fair was held in the Kletz. Blanksma c o m m e n t e d , " w e felt it was good, we ran about 100 tests which was all that we could handle m a n p o w e r w i s e . " She stated, " w e are holding it in Dow this year because of the new facility and this is where we are l o c a t e d . " Blanksma continued, "1 am concerned that we will see mostly athletes and people that are in Dow all the time. 1 am concerned that people might not just wander in like they did in the Kletz. Although not everyone wanders into the K l e t z . " she added. Accordint to Blanksma the fair helps to advertise the clinic and through the testing may m a k e people aware of possible problems. She also said, " W e probably will make it annual, there seems to be a lot of interest in this type of thing—free t e s t i n g . "

Chapel choir to sing its way through Europe this spring The chapel choir on its annual spring tour will thisyear visit E u r o p e . Usually the choir tours the East, Midwest, or West for two weeks during spring break. This May will be the second time in the choir's history that it will tour European countries. On May 14, the choir will depart, with 52 members, from C h i c a g o ' s O ' H a r e airport to spend fifteen days sightseeing and singing in Belgium, L u x e m b o u r g , Switzerland, Austria, G e r m a n y , and the Netherlands. They will travel in one large bus, complete with a tour guide, furnished by Witte Associates, a travel agency in Grand Rapids that planned the trip. The group will see such places as Delft, Amsterdam; Lucerne, Switzerland; Salzburg, G e r m a n y and T h e Hague and Rotterdam. The choir will give eight concerts during their trip, sometimes participating in actual worship services, other times singing in the churches. The concerts will be sung in Luxembourg, Lucerne, Switzerland; Innsbruck, Stuttgart, and E s s e n , Germany; Benschop, Netherlands; St. Jans Kerk in Jouda and Bleiswijk, both in the Netherlands. In Essen, the choir will be participating in the International Choir Festival with Child & Youth Choirs from many countries.

The c h o i r ' s program of music contains many diverse pieces, but all sacred music. T h e program includes much American music, such as numbers by Alice Parker, Halsey Stevens, Daniel Pinkham, and Ralph Vaughn Williams, and also two spirituals by L. Fleming, and Edwin Fissinger. The choir will also sing some pieces in Latin. The cost of the trip will be $789 per student. This price includes hotel acc o m m o d a t i o n s (the choir will spend a lew nights in host's homes), two meals a d a y , all travel, plane, and bus expenses while in Europe, tour guide, and all taxes and gratuities. Each student is expected to pay as much as he/she is able, ranging from a minimum of $400 to the full cost of the trip. T h e deficit will then be made up by money raised in work projects. Hope is putting forth its annual expense budget for choir tour, what they would pay if the choir w a s going on U.S. tour, and the choir is raising the rest of the m o n e y . So far, the work projects have ranged from shoveling driveways and roofs (even the roof of Herman Miller Co.!), to making and selling submarine sandwiches on c a m p u s . Presently the choir is in the process of taking and filling sub orders from nearby church congregations. They anticipate selling

subs to faculty and administration as well as to students again before the c h o i r ' s goal is met. The choir has also received contributions from c h u r c h e s and past chapel choir m e m b e r s . In addition to its lurid raising activities, this semester the choii is busy with many area concerts. T h e g r o u p sang in Grand Rapids at Fifth Reformed on Feb. 18, and will sing on Mar. 11 at Fellowship Reformed m Hudsonville, Mar. 25 at Hope Reformed in Grand Rapids, Apr. 15 in K a l a m a / o o at Second R e f o r m e d , Api 22 at Central Ave. Christian Reformed in Holland, also on the 22nd at Second Reformed in Zeeland. The choir will also sing in three very special concerts this spring. On Mar. 17 they will participate in the Alice Parker Festival. This will be the Hoi land C o m m u n i t y Chorale and Hope Chapel Choir singing together undei the direction of Parker. Parker is a conductor, composer and arranger of American music. She has written operas, orchestra, organ, piano and c h o r u s w o r k s , and chamber music. On Sunday Mar. 18, the choir will sing for the installation ceremony of our new chaplain, Gerry VanHeest. The Chapel Chorr will present its home concert on Apr. 29 at 8 p . m . in Dimnent Chapel.

Fear of commitment, lack of pride in students In the issue of Feb. 8 we discussed the problem of communications on campus. The anchor has tried, without being a bulletin board, to keep you informed of what is happening on your campus as well as around the world (briefly). We are the form of communication that reaches the largest number of students. However, there is a possibility that after next week's issue there will be no more anchor. The anchor is published under the authority of the Student Communications Media

Committee, run by students, financially supported by students, written by students, and read by students. In short it is a student newspaper. This sounds like a lot of students are connected with the anchor. In reality there are fewer than twenty-five students in any way connected with the anchor. Two-thirds of these are reporters that write one story a week and are not involved in the actiwi make up of the paper. There are presently only four students that do copy editing, proofreading, layout, write headlines, and spend all day Wednesday in Grand Rapids doing the final paste-up. These four students also have to try and keep up with the news, make assignments, and make sure reporters meet the deadline. It is also one of these four that drives to Grandville every week to pick up the paper and deliver it on campus. Three key staff members have resigned

within the past week along with two reporters. There has been a turnover m staff and reporters constantly throughout the year. AH organizations have to deal with personality and interest conflicts, however, we feel the real problem is a lack of loyalty, fear of commitment and unwillingness to do a little extra work. Tflis is not just a problem concerning the anchor but one that most campus organizations and the college itself is facing. We feel there is a definite lack of spirit here at Hope. In talking with students there is always criticism to be heard, seldom will anyone say t4 I think Hope is a fine school, and I'm proud to be a part of it. In general students at this school don't give a damn. We have heard complaints about-housing, complaints about saga, complaints about professors, complaints about grades, complaints about the ^system", complaints about dorm life, complaints about the health services, and complaints about students complaining. This is your school, you chose to come here, probably with high expectations. Yet, no one is willing to stand up, to commit themselves to trying to change things, to make their life at Hope more enjoyable, and more rewarding. Once again, it is your school, it is your life, so why are you settling for low grades, why are you settling for a room you don't want, why are you settling for complaining to friends and not to the people who could do something. We have said it is your school, along with that are the organizations at the school. We do not own the anchor, you do. If you all sit by in your apathetic worlds and do nothing you may lose what is rightfully yours.

Inflation guidelines not for higher education In your Mar 1st editorial, you stated that the Hope College Board of Trustees apparently has taken a position that disregards the Presidential guidelines with respect to the price guidelines. 1 disagree with this point of view. Further research on your part into how the guidelines affect higher education would have found that the government has indicated that the guidelines would not totally apply to higher education. Tuition is not the functional equivalent of an industrial price because tuition, which is not intended to cover the full cost of college education, is often necessarily determined as a residual amount required to balance the budget if other sources of revenue fail to compensate for inflation. The 1979-80 tuition and fee increases at Hope were determined after carefully proj-

Dow Chemical threatensMSU The recent threats to M.S.U. by the Dow Chemical Corporation should not surprise any of us. It is but one more attempt to exercise control over academia and if it is a success, it will spell an end to the significant role higher education plays in a free enterprise system. Zolton Ferency is correct in questioning whether Dow's actions are coercive and its gifts political. It appears as though Dow will be a friend to the college

only as long as the college is uncritical of the corporation's internal life, extent of profit making, and world influence. In an earlier letter to the university, Dow said that the M.S.U. decision to divpst "is going to make Dow feel less generous towards the university". This earlier threat is now being acted out. In fact, Dow has tried to cloud its extortion by referring to "principle." They would have us believe: (1) that in principle, M.S.U. seeks to be totally untainted by monies gained from the apartheid economy of South Africa and (2) that Dow is only helping the university accomplish the goal. However, Dow's extrapolated argument for moral purity in university monies is deceptive and untenable. The tax HBY,

dollars used to support public education also come from Dow and other companies who are profiting in South Africa. Will Dow raise questions about public taxes also? M.S.U. was not seeking an idealistic purity. They did, however, attempt to renew the critical function of higher education by serving notice that our direct investments in the Republic of South Africa support a constitutionally oppressive regime^The decision by the M.S.U. Board of Trustees to divest was a realistic one. They did not seek a university untainted in all aspects of its life, but rather chose to use one means at its disposal—its stock—in order to express its function as critic of corporation and public policy. It seems to me as though this task is even more imperative for the college concerned with modeling the life of Christ. This dissenting function is not easy to accomplish in an environment of "strings attached" giving. Those who build buildings or do research with Dow funds need to take notice. The free enterprise system is not so free with its gifts when they result in criticism of the corporation. Maybe that's why colleges and universities are so quiet these days. Let's be thankful for voices from East Lansing calling for justice and freedom . It's much too quiet and controlled here and in other places. Sincerely, Don Van Hoeven '56

ecting enrollment, contributions, and costs. If revenues from all sources cannot be projected to cover operating expenses of the College, then tuition increases are needed to prevent deficits. These tuition increases will not generally be considered out of compliance with price standards. Hope has operated with a sound fiscal management policy and has balanced its budget each year without incurring large surpluses. We feel that our costs are still substantially less than other small quality liberal arts colleges. We believe that our policy of operating with a balanced budget is not inflationary and that we are a victim of inflation rather than the cause of it. Sincerely, William K. Anderson Vice President for Business and Finance

1979

W A S H I N G T O N — O n e of the roles of a newspaper columnist is to keep everyone informed as to w h o are the good guys and who are the bad guys as far as the United States is concerned. I would like all of you to get out your map, pencil and paper. Vice Premier Teng Hsiao-ping of the People's Republic of China is a good guy even though he has just ordered an incursion into Vietnam, because the Vietnamese went into Cambodia and Teng thought Hanoi should be taught a lesson. Teng will remain a good guy in our e y e s unless he uses force against Taiwan, with whom we had a special and long relationship which we just gave up by normalizing our ties with the People's Republic of China. Soviet Party Secretary Leonid Brezhnev is a bad guy because the Soviets seem to be making mischief all over the world. But at the same time we want a S A L T treaty with the Russians

so we are pretending he is a good guy. Brezhnev m a y ' b e b a d , but the feeling in Washington is that there are people waiting to take his place w h o could be much w o r s e . T h e r e f o r e , it's belter to # talk to Brezhnev than to s o m e of the other hardliners, w h o are furious because we asked Vice Premier T e n g to come to dinner and claim we urged Teng to go into Vietnam which we vehemently d e n y , although secretly we're not too unhappy about. The Shah of Iran was a good guy up to the bitter e n d , when he was forced to leave Iran on 24 hours' notice. As a matter of fact, he was the only good guy we would have anything to do with in Iran. So when he flew the c o u p we d i d n ' t have any alternate good guy to support. At first we decided the good guys were the generals in the Iranian army w h o backed the Shah and who would probably rule the country when he left. But the army fell apart and we suddenly had to find a new friend in the Ayatollah Khomeini, who decided to found an Islamic republic, whatever the hell that is. T h e United States is hoping an Islamic republic is one that will sell oil to the West, in which case Khomeini will be a good guy and be treated with all the reverence and re-

spect we gave to the Shah. The one good thing about having Khomeini for a friend is that, if for some reason he decides t o leave Iran again, he has promised not to visit his sister in Beverly Hills. The president of Mexico. Jose Lopez Portjllo. is a good guy. even though he has publicly scolded our President at a luncheon. The reason he is considered a good guy is that M e x i c o has large quantities of oil and gas. and when a country has these two things we must swallow our pride and explain to the American people that the president of Mexico w a s only- speaking for domestic consumption, and that in his heart he really loves Jimmy Carter. President S o m o z a of Nicaragua is a bad guy because he violates h u m a n rights and d o e s n ' t have any oil and gas. • Libyan leader M u a m m a r K h a d a f y is a good guy because although he violates human rights and supports terrorism he d o e s have oil and gas. Prime Minister Menachem Begin of Israel is a bad guy because he w o n ' t give up the West Bank of the J o r d a n . President Carter has been very harsh about Begin because he k n o w s Israel has no oil and gas. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat is a good guy because he wants the West Bank of Jordan to go back to the P L O , which the United States does not recognize. Besides individuals, the United States now has strained relations with most African countries, C a n a d a . South A m e r i c a . E u r o p e and Japan. O n the other hand, we have strong ties with Saudi Arabia, North Yemen and the Vatican. President C a r t e r ' s foreign policies are working despite what you might read in the newspapers, thanks not only to him but to his brother Billy Carter, w h o m the President relies on to keep up his good ties with the American Jewish c o m m u n i t y . T o sum up, the United States has never been in a better foreign policy position and. with the friends we now have strong alliances with, we d o n ' t need any e n e m i e s . © 1979, Los Angeles T i m e s Syndicate

©mr torn v This isn't a confrontation with controversy. Nor is it a confession, as m y last article was. Instead, it's the fulfillment of a promise. With the massiveness of its buildings. the piercing jangle of its street sounds and the grab-bag nature of its nationalities. Chicago seems a continent away from Holland. M i c h i g a n . But a short three-hour stretch of superhighway transports more than a few Hopeites each break into " t h e c i t y " for a visit h o m e , a shopping trip or a cultural field trip. - During winter break that superhighway sucked the bronze Dodge Colt of my four h o u s e m a t e s and 1 south into Chicago for just such a cultural field trip. W e spent the greater part of the day at the Art Institute soaking in the peace o f S e r r a u t ' s " S u n d a y Afternoon on the Island of La Grande J a t t e . " studying Picasso's " O l d G u i t a r i s t " for the " h i d d e n w o m a n . " eating our brown bag lunch in the modern cafeteria, and buying postcards and prints in the museum gift shop. Later we m a d e a careful e x a m i n a tion of m o d e m American culture by shopping in s o m e of the stores along Michigan A v e n u e . By six our stomachs were crying that the next culturally stimulating item on the itinerary would have to be edible. We knew that to go for Big Macs and banana shakes would defile the whole day. But.any other^hoice seemed too difficult to make; signs and store fronts offering food from every corner of the world flashed in our tired eyes from all angles. Finally we ducked in an inviting doorway just to get out o f the dirty dampness of Chicago at dusk and to decide where we were going to go. We found ourselves in the narrow, cozy front dining room o f "La Creperie" on North Clark Street. The soft lights were a warm orange; the noise of the city was shut behind the heavy wooden door. The rotund manager looked up at six tired, sniffmg-fromthe-cold college women huddling indecisively near the door, and knew he could help. He smiled warmly and pointed to the blackboard menu on the wall. The best

French crepes in t o w n , he bragged; w h y , some w h o visit C h i c a g o w o n ' t leave until t h e y ' v e stopped at " L a C r e p e r i e . " And it's not e x p e n s i v e , either (here he looked at my torn mittens). We have a quiet corner o v e r here where we'll pull two tables together so you can have plenty of room to relax. With the words " q u i e t " and " r e l a x " I w a s c a u g h t . And m y sisters were too tired to c a r e as 1 let him guide us to that corner. H e pulled out our chairs, poured us ice water, and s u m m o n e d the friendliest waitress in the house to care for us. • Almost immediately we began to revive. I lit the candle at our table and looked around. In the back w a s a bay w i n d o w extending into the dining room from the kitchen where patrons could watch the chef " p r e p a r e les crepes." „ . O u r host called us o v e r , and we all clustered around the w i n d o w . R a m o n , the Mexican-American practicing French cuisine, looked up at six curious and hungry f a c e s pressed up against the glass and invited us back to try our hand at c r e p e - m a k i n g . He d i d n ' t speak enough English to explain c r e p e - m a k i n g technique, so w e tried the universal language of imitation. Sure that as a well-rounded Hope College senior I could master this simple operation. I took the ladle in my left hand and the batter-spreader in my right. Attempting to imitate all of Ramon's graceful motions. I ended up with a sagging crepe the shape of a mud puddle. Ramon, with a knowing smile, told me I did very well. After w e ' d each had our turn we went back to our corner table to eat the crepes we'd made, now stuffed with spinach, cheese, and mushrooms. Ot course we thought that they were the best crapes we'd had, since w e had, after all, made them ourselves in an authentic French creperie. A s we left I promised the proprietor that I'd tell my friends about this little French refuge off the stir and clatter of Chicago's Clark Street. I'd recommend "La Creperie" not because the crepes were light and the c o f f e e string, but because there were friendly, warm people there. What I'd first.thought was another world of cold steel and

Reid T h u r s t o n John is a Christian. O . K . everybody. stop reading right now and form a mental image of John. To some John doesn't indulge in the use of alcohol, tobacco, or the ^pleasures of the f l e s h . " T o others John is a person with a trouble-free life. To others. John engages in a certain-set of activities once a week on Sunday mornings. Other people might view John as a man who has adopted a simpler lifestyle (like consuming less) out of love for his neighbors. Some people may think of John as a pei*on w h o just believes in a superhuman force. Still others might picture John as a man who has memorized the Heidelberg Cathechism. Different people get different pictures of what a Christian is. depending on what their background is. The Christians 1 have known have come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. They come from vastly different

backgrounds. They have much in common, but there is still room for a rich variety. Different groups tend to emphasize different parts of the Christian experience. Then what is it that marks a Christian? Christianity is not a set of do's and dont's as much as it is a relationship between God, a s revealed in Jesus, and us. T o be a Christian means to believe certain things, but being a Christian is also more than merely passively agreeing to certain doctrines. It involves action. Being a Christian is to live out our love. Faith is absolutely essential but as St. James points out. "Faith without works is d e a d . " (James 2:17). But since Christians c o m e in such diverse f o r m s , how is one to j u d g e whether or not so-and-so is a Christian? T h a t ' s just it; w e ' r e not. T h a n k fully. the j o b of judgment d o e s n ' t fall on our shoulders. In addition, we are expressly instructed not to j u d g e . Jesus

said, " D o not judge lest you be j u d g e d y o u r s e l v e s . , , We have n o business looking at a person and saying whether or not that person is'a C h r i s t i a n . / Instead of being quick to j u d g e a person by his/her outside (habits, appearances, etc.), perhaps we should be quicker to look into a p e r s o n ' s inside. 4 'For God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward a p p e a r a n c e , but the Lord looks at the h e a r t . " (1 Sam 16:7) We need to look beyond whether a person smokes or is a m e m b e r of Young Republicans to the beautiful inner qualities of each person. T a k i n g a deeper look at people involves great expenditure of time and energy. It's much easier to merely judge someone by appearances, h u t if we do simply j u d g e , we are being unfaithful to Christ w h o calls us, and we miss a tremendous amount of beau. ^ m the world.

Frasei offered 300 Australian soldiers for a United Nations transitional g r o u p being raised to supervise the election and the tiansition to self government ol Namibia (Southwest Africa). Ministers of the Prime Minister's cabinet answered questions on the status of Australia's d e f e n s e , international trade with the Middle East and China, the alleged high cost of airline tickets, and a General Motors-Holden proposal for a 210 million dollar carengine plant to be built in the State of Victoria in Australia. A diffeient list ot questions was being asked of the Prime Minister's ministers who sit in the Sen ate, the house that corresponds to the House of Lords in the United Kingdom. Granted that we attended the opening day of parliament, 1 was impressed with how si.tn a question period, without g i v i r ^ notice of the nature of the questions in advance, and with a chancc for follow up questions can aid in gi> mg an open and responsible govern.nent. I was also impressed with the out standing ability of Prime Ministei Eraser to answer the questions forcefully, unhaltingly, and without a note in hand, even in the face of catcalls and interjections from the opposition benchs. Certainly the opposition treated Prime Minister Eraser as a peer, or less, and not as our congress has sometimes treated our " i m p e r i a l " presidents. I recognize that we are not going to change our political parties immediately into disciplined political parties as required in a parliamentary system, but our parties could stand for a little more than they now do. 1 also recognize that with our separation of institutions—legislative, executive, and judicial—that our President is not going to immediately subject himself to congressional interrogation, but wouldn't it be grand if some president some day would submit to questions and follow up questions by.at least a panel of opposition and friendly congressmen? Certainly, by having congressional " e x p e r t s " involved and not only the press, responsible government would be enhanced and an informed electorate made even more a w a r e .

Another objective of the new courses is to expose the basic science student to the techniques, capabilities and limitations of engineers. Norton has excerpted parts of his analysis scheme on the Voyager antenna and put them into the Hope computer so his students can "get a taste o f engineering." Wettack and Norton both point out that there are currently numerous fairly lucrative job openings for engineers. In response to this situation, recent years have witnessed a growing number of Hope freshmen expressing aif interest in engineering. The liberal arts curriculum provides ideal training for the would-be engineer, Norton maintains, because the breadth o f the educational

experience results in a better perspective from which to view complex problems. "Engineers need to understand social problems. At the same time, not all problems in this world have technical solutions. In fact, most don't. Some where between the humanistic and the technical approach, there's a good - working ground." Increased opportunities for interaction between the college and the local industrial community is a side-benefit of the new engineering program at Hope. Wettack points out. In addition to serving full-time Hope" students, the new engineering courses afe being offered to Holland area industry. The present classes already are attended by representatives from industry.

Danforth Lecturer talks on interpretations Richard R. Niebuhr, Lamont professor of divinity at the Harvard University Divinity School, will be on Hope's campus on Mar. 15th and 16th as the Danforth Lecturer for the current academic year. Sponsored by Hope s religion department, Niebuhr's visit will include one public lecture and other presentations to faculty and student groups. This annual lecture program was established by the Danforth Foundation ' ' t o deepen and enlarge the religious dimension of the campus family through speakers who can reflect on the broad, interdenominational and yet positive sense of the JudaeoChristian perspectives on life and existence." Niebuhr's main lecture, which is open to all students and the public, will be at Wichers Auditorium on Mar. 15th, Thursday, at 3:30 p . m . His topic will be " T h e Strife of interpreting: The moral burden of imagination"— a discussion of the relationship between " t h e interpretation of texts, especially the Bible, and the task of interpreting o n e ' s way through l i f e . " In recent years, Niebuhr has been particularly interested in the need for theology to be more imaginative and concrete than the

r

traditional systematic theology has been. His presentations at Hope will undoubtedly reflect this interest of his. Niebuhr received his A . B . from Harvard College, B. D. from Union Theological Seminary (New York), and P h . D . from Y^ale (1955). Before joining the Harvard faculty in 1956, he briefly held a pastorate in Cornwall, Connecticut, and also taught at Vassar College. An expert on the thought of Schleiermacher, Niebuhr has written Schleiermacher on Christ and Religion: A New Introduction, Resurrection and Historical Reason: A Study of Theological Method, and, most recently, Experiential Religion. He has also published numerous articles in such journals as Religion in Life and The Christian Century. In addition to teaching, Niebuhr has served for many years as the chairman of Harvard Committee on the Study of Religion which supervises all Ph.D. students in religion at that institution. He has also recently established an undergraduate honors concentration in religion at Harvard and Radcliffe. This program offers students an opportunity to major in religious studies for the first time in the history of those colleges. Niebuhr is a member of the Editorial Committee of T h e Complete W o r k s of Johathan Edwards for Yale University Press, and also a member of The American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He has delivered The Cadbury Lectures at the University of Birmingham, England; and,The S t e a m s Lectures at Bangor Theological Seminary. Niebuhr lives with his wife in Arlington, Massachusetts.

Note: There were some questions regarding the clarification of several financial aid programs and the anchor would like to clear up any misunderstandings that the original article might have caused. Hope students will-benefit from several changes in financial aid programs on both the federal and state level. The recent passage of the Middle Income Student Assistant ACT ( M I S A A ) will increase the amount of Federal aid available to Hope and other students. Bruce Himebaugh, director of fmancil aid, estimates that these recent, changes will add a substantial amount of money for his office to use in preparing financial aid packages. Himebaugh said that the M I S A A will prove to have the greatest influence on financial aid at Hope. The basic features of the act include the removal of the $ 2 5 , 0 0 0 income ceiling for government subsidized interest payments. Under the new act, all students borrowing money through their home-town banks will have the interest on Guaranteed Student Loans paid by the government while the student attends school full time. Himebaugh said that if a student borrowed the m a x i m u m amount for four years, the government will pay the $ 1,600 of interest that is charged on the loan. The most significant part of the M I S A A . is the change in the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant program. The impact of this change on college flhancial aid programs is unpredictable. Himebaugh said the basic change in the BEOG program is in income eligibility. The ceiling has been raised so

that many " m i d d l e c l a s s " students qualify for BEOG monies. Himebaugh estimates that the amount that Hope students receive from the BEOG program will j u m p from this year's $ 3 0 0 , 0 0 0 total to about $ 8 0 0 , 0 0 0 next school year. He further projects an increase in Ihe number of BEOG program students to approximately three times this year's number. O n the state level, the major change is the addition of sophomores in the Michigan Differential Grant program. This program, which started this past school year, grants $ 5 0 0 to all Michigan freshmen, regardless of financial need, attending a private school in the state of Michigan. This program has been under attack, and a petition drive was instigated at the beginning of the fall semester against it. Himebaugh expressed his concern of the serious threat this petition drive poses to the program, and said that the outcome will not be known until the deadline of Mar. 29 has been reached. Himebaugh said that one-fourth of the students receiving the M D G did not receive any other financial aid. He said that the amount of money the students received last year was about $250,000. He predicts the figure will double next year with the expansion of the grant to include next y e a r ' s sophomores. Himebaugh is very enthusiastic about next year. And because the federal government requires verification of the financial need of all federal aid recipients, Himebaugh predicts his work load will increase dramatically. He accepts this increase in paperwork, because he feels everyone should be able to attend the school of

their choice. Himebaugh feels there has been a growing gap in the cost differences betwefen public and private schools in recent years. " M y office attempts to increase financial aid to qualified students, but many students d o not receive financial assistance and the growing gap is of great concern to u s . " Himebaugh said, " T h a t is one reason why such programs as the Michigan Differential Grant program are so important to us and their preservation needed." He stressed the Mar. 15 deadline for filing the Financial Aid Form (FAF), by saying that " M y office will obviously give students consideration for funds after the deadline date if funds exist, but it is a known fact that many aid funds are fully expended and it is necessary to deny some student financial assistance due to the lateness of their financial aid r e q u e s t . " According to the college catalogue, the financial aid application deadline is May 1. Himebaugh said that this is ' true, but added that Michigan students who qualify for the various programs the state offers should get their FAF sent in sometime before the May deadline, or they might find that there isn't any money left in the state financial aid budget. Himbaugh also added "I feel that there may be some students who may be eligible for financial aid who have not applied for aid in the p a s t . " Obviously, with the changes in several programs, financial aid should be available to more students, and they should fill out a FAF to find out if they do qualify for financial assistance.

HEW changes loan program rules H E W Secretary Joseph Califano recently set new regulations for the National Direct Student Loan program intending to decrease default rates. Schools participating in the N D S L program will submit fiscal operations reports based on the period from June 3 0 , 1978, to June 30, 1979 and further funds will be cut off f r o m those colleges and universities failing to reduce default rates. About one third of H o p e ' s students receive $ 4 1 2 , 0 0 0 in National Direct Student Loans this year and according to the Director of Financial Aid Bruce Himebaugh, Hope does not have a serious problem with defaults. The national overall default rate has increased f r o m 16.9% to 17.7% while H o p e ' s rate is between 8% and 9 % . " W e have many more defaults than we would l i k e , " says Himebaugh, but he feels Hope will not be in danger of being cut out of the N D S L program as long as its rate remains under 10%. Hope took steps f o u r or five years ago to improve the management of student loans by hiring University Accounting Service, a professional bil-

ling out of Milwaukee to handle collections. University Accounting Service sends Hope a print out once a month including the default rate for that month. A loan is considered in the rate of default if the payment is one quarter or more behind. University Accounting Service has a phone follow up system on delinquent loans. H E W has changed the formula for determining the delinquent percent of loan payment which has made the in-

crease in defaults appear more serious than it is. It compares new percentages to old percentages. The Financial Aid Department's concern is that negative publicity because of the colleges who are having difficulty with defaults will eventually cause the government to terminate financial aid programs. Reauthorization of Federal Financing Programs is underway in Congress right now and if aid is cut, it could hurt those depending on national loans.

Plastic money increases, buyers enjoy instant money Linda Joy Many consumers now have a plastic money card in their wallets which allows them to make bank deposits or withdrawals at almost any hour. If you have one of these cards, here are some tips you need to know about your rights and responsibilities: Don't write the secret identification number on the card or carry it near the card in a wallet or purse. This number must remain secret to keep both savings and checking accounts secure. The combination of the card and number may be all someone would need to wipe out all your accounts. • Try to memorize the number. But if you must write it down, keep the number in a place separate from the card. And don't give the number to another person, no matter how good a friend. You may be held liable for any transactions made by another person who has both the card and the secret number. A new state law offers protection from some of the disadvantages of the system which transfers money from one account to another instandy with a simple electronic impulse. 24-hour tellers are the most familiar examples of this new technology. But the future may see these terminals in many other places too. For example, one day you may pay for groceries by simply transferring the

money electronically from your own account to the store's. While no cash or checks actually change hands, the goods have been paid for instantaneously by computer. Because all transactions are handled by computer, there is a detailed financial record available on everyone who uses this system. To protect your privacy and make sure this information doesn't get into the wrong hands, the n^w law requires your specific permission before any information on your account can be released unless it is required by law or a court order. T o help you keep track of your personal finances, the law requires the financial institution to issue periodic statements, along with a receipt for each transaction made with the electronic teller. It also prohibits the mailing of unsolicited, usable cards and provides guidelines to work out possible disputes. You will also be able to stop payment on a purchase just as you can on a check. If a problem arises with an item costing more than $50 and attempts to work out the problem with the store have failed, you can order the financial institution to reverse the payment. If you'd like more information on your rights and responsibilities under this important new law, write the Michigan Consumers Council, 4 1 4 HoIIister B l d g . , 106 W.

Adrian drops Hope in tourney

. V Steve Nearpass

,

The 1979 N C A A Division Basketball Tournament should prove to be one of the most exciting tourneys in recent years. In the last f j v e y e a r s , only Marquette, the 1977 winners, were not heavily favored to win the t o u m a m e n t . K e n t u c k y , last y e a r ' s winner, was heavily favored throughout the season and they defeated the underdog Bluedevils of Duke in the finals. This year, there is no clear cut favorite to win the title. T h e n u m b e r o n e ranked Indiana State is not the p e o p l e s ' choice to win the title. This year, there are many teams that have chances to win it all. Indiana State is not the o b v i o u s pick because people are skeptical of their schedule. Indiana State went through their season without losing a g a m e . They play in the Missouri Valley C o n f e r e n c e . This is not one of the better c o n f e r e n c e s in the college ranks. Whether it is underrated o r not, I am not sure, but very few teams have emerged from this conference to threaten for the title. ISU did defeat P u r d u e ' early in the season and Purdue wound u p tied for first place in the Big 10. This year the N C A A tourney e x p a n d e d to 40 t e a m s from last y e a r ' s 32 teams. These 40 teams are chosen the following way; twenty t e a m s will qualify as conference champions; three will be chosen as winners of special m e e t s in the E C A C ; and the others will be selected from the t e a m s ' records. T h e latter teams . will consist of teams that are not in the conferences and from teams that finished second in the conferences. There are many c h a n g e s that are taking place f r o m last y e a r ' s f o r m a t . If two teams f r o m the same conference are chof»en, they will be placed so that these teams cannot clash in the finals. Three officials-will be used in the tournament. The 17 best at-large teams that are chosen after the c o n f e r e n c e winners are placed, will be chosen without regard to geographic location. The only problem that this poses is that some of the teams will be playing in regionals that they are not in. An example of this is De Paul and Marquette who will be playing in the West regionals, not the Midwest or Mideast. This year for the first time the teams are ranked within the four regions. The top two teams ranked will receive byes in the first round of action. T h e decision to rank the t e a m s was decided to try to m a k e the g a m e s belter by having the teams better balanced. The four different regions are the Midwest, the Mideast, the East, and West. The top t e a m s to emerge from each of these divisions will comprise the final four. The c h a m p i o n s h i p team will c o m e from one of the final four and these teams will have their play-offs on Mar. 24 and 26. T h e final series will be held in Salt Lake City. All four regions appear to be strong this year. T h e edge for the tougher ones might go to the Mideast and the East. T h e West should be dominated by U C L A ; but they will not have an easy time of it. Their toughest competition will c o m e from De Paul, Southern California, and the dark horse could be San Francisco. In the Midwest. Indiana State is ranked number o n e . They will have to prove themselves in the tournament. They will have a tough time with Louisville and Arkansas. Arkansas could be the surprise team in the region. Last y e a r ' s runner-up. Duke, is ranked second in the East regional behind North Carolina. North Carolina defeated Duke for the c h a m p i o n s h i p in the A C C . Georgetown and Syracuse could make some waves. Syracuse is a team that could pull a big surprise. This team s problem is that they lack a consistent g a m e plan. They can look really good and look as if they could c o m p e t e with any team in the -country, then they turn around and play terribly. The Mideast could ne the one with the best action. Notre D a m e is ranked number o n e . This team has been ranked number o n e for about half of the regular season. They have t o m e upon a losing streak of late t h o u g h , and enter the tourney on a t w o - g a m e Ipi.ng streak. Michigan State, tied for the top in the Big 10, are ranked second in jhe region. Despite their loss to Wisconsin which ended their regular season and knocked them back to a tie for the top, the Spartans have peaked at the right time. They had a big winning streak going a n d 4 h e loss to Wisconsin should not set them back. Despite their loss to Wisconsin which ended their regular season and knqeked them back to a tie for the top, the Spartans have peaked at the right time. They had a big winning streak g o i n g and the loss to Wisconsin should not set them back. T h e y played well, fought back to the lead, and were beaten on a fluke shot. The winning shot for Wisconsin c a m e on a , 50-foot bank shot as the buzzer s o u n d e d . W e l l , I will put myselt on the spot. I will make m y predictions for the winners of each regional and for the over-all c h a m p i o n s h i p . In the East regional, 1 think that Duke will come out on top after they defeat N o r t h Carolina in the Eastern finals. I pick Michigan State to win in a tough over Notre D a m e . U C L A will reign in the W e s t , and I look for Arkansas to come out on top, knocking o f f Indiana State. At Salt Lake City, the final four match-ups will go as follows: Duke will defeat Michigan State and U C L A will defeat Arkansas, avenging a loss to them last year that kept U C L A out of the final four. U C L A will reign over-all by defeating Duke in the finals. Duke will drop the c h a m p i o n s h i p game for the second straught year. T h e darkhorse in the over-all tournament will be Syracuse. If they can get their act together, they could surprise everyone and make the final four. They will need a good performance from Roosevelt Bouie, their 7-foot junior center. He has been very inconsistent all season and will have to be at his best if Syracuse is going to make a serious threat. O n e of the hardest j o b s will be to pick the tournament all-star team. There are many good ballplayers that will lead their teams into the tourney. It would be impossible to mention them all, but I would like to mention some that I think might make the all-tourney team. These are: Kelly Tripuka of Notre D a m e , Dave Greenwood ot U C L A , Ervin Johnson of M S U , Sidney Moncrief of Arkansas, Bill Cartwright ot San Francisco, and possibly the t o p player in the t o u r n a m e n t , Indiana S t a t e ' s Larry Bird. The 1979 N C A A tournament will be o n e o f t h e best tourneys that you might see in a long time. The teams are all good and no one is the big favorite to g o all the way.

T h e y were unable to k e e p up the w i n n i n g pace t h o u g h , as they finished the season with one win in the last nine g a m e s . " T h e season w a s a pretty good o n e , but it did have its ups and d o w n s , " slated Irwin t , " T h e biggest disappointment of the season was not being able to beat Alma in league play. We beat t h e m the first time we m e t , but that w a s non-league action. They knocked us off when we met in league c o m p e t i tion." O n e of the bright spots for Hope was that they were able to start four

She w a s held back with two sprained ankles. Next year, the w o m e n should have a great squad back. Leading the returnees will be f r e s h m a n guard Lora Hanson, the top scorer on the t e a m . Hanson was chosen the most valuable player o n the t e a m . Anne Mulder, a junior center, was voted the most improved player. Gebhart will be the only m e m b e r to graduate. " N e x t year, we will be s t r o n g e r , " said Irwin. " T h e teams to beat next year will be Calvin and Adrian, but we should be stronger than the o t h e r s . "
