Midterm grading policy reviewed

i

by Kim Mooi "I had a faculty member write me last fall and say how meaningless he felt midterm grades were. And, in some ways, I have to agree with him." said Hope's registrar, Jon Huisken. "These reports are usually representative of one test — a third of a student's grade, if that." Under current midterm grading procedures, all students are given copies of their grades midway through the semester. In addition to this, first- and second-semester freshmen have their grades sent home to their parents. "Sometimes I feel our current midterm grading policy undermines some other goals Hope sets for its students, like allowing them to mature and deal with responsibilities," said Huisken. Huisken has drawn up several alternatives to the midterm grading policy and submitted them to the Academic Affairs Board for their consideration. These alternatives are: DThat midterm grades be submitted for freshmen only for both semesters. In addition, academic warning notices would be sent to any student who is earning a grade D or F in a course. (Note: This proviso would be added to alternatives below as well.) 2)That midterm grades be submitted for freshmen for fall semester only. 3)That midterm grades be submitted for freshmen and sophomores only. 4)That midterm grades be submitted for 100- and 200-level courses only. Huisken hopes that, even if no changes are made in the current policy, midterm grades will at least become more effective, efficient and economical. Mid-

term grades should be effective in the sense that they genuinely reflect a student's progress for an eight-week period. Efficiency should play a role in the midterm grading procedures so that faculty do not need to take the time to report meaningless grades in classes where midterm grades are impossible to determine. Cost is a concern at Hope and should be taken into consideration if midterm grades are perceived as being of little value. When asked how soon the Academic Affairs Board would reach a decision concerning the midterm grading policy, Huisken replied, "The Board doesn't have to reach any decision at all on this matter. Therefore, it is hard to determine the future of midterm grades."

Board's plan for DeWitt revised President Gordan Van Wylen has informed members of the special student congress committee for the renovations of DeWitt Center that students will be keeping most of the area that presently comprises the Kletz. Van Wylen stressed that, although the details have yet to be worked out, students will retain "essentially all of the present Kletz a r e a , " in addition to the new area downstairs. Van Wylen remarked that the "original plan was very broad with the details to be worked out with students." He also added that "the new changes are a response to the whole range of the strongly felt student concerns. The admissions office

will stay where it is, in the brick building adjacent to the library, and the present Kletz will be left to students, except for an information booth still in planning." Exact plans for the downstairs are still in question. Donna Kline, chairwoman of the special committee, pointed out, "We have lots of ideas for the downstairs, but nothing concrete as yet." The committee met with the architect Tuesday to clarify exactly what the students want. Lora Rector, also a member of the special committee, stressed that, "There has to be good use of the space with more rooms, not just more space."

Another area under consideration is the number of entrances to the Kletz. One possibility is eliminating both doors on the patio side of the Kletz, and leaving the bookstore entrance to replace them; another idea is to eliminate one of the two doors and install double doors at that spot. Details of this kind are being worked out this week with the architect. The site of the old Kletz kitchen will become the new theater lounge, adding further to the Kletz area. After the architect is informed of the changes, he will draw up new plans to be presented during a special community hour, March 17, in Winants Auditorium.

Committee makes budget recommendation \ by Ted Bolema Student Congress Appropriations Committee On Feb. 21-22, the Student Congress Appropriations Committee met with r e p r e s e n t a t i v e s f r o m 12 s t u d e n t organizations to review 1980-81 budgets and make recommendations for the 198182 school year. The Appropriations Committee is a subcommittee of Student Congress and is responsible for presenting a budget proposal for the allocation of the activity fee to Student Congress. This year's committee based its decisions on an expected budget of $65,000 and the following considerations: The Appropriations Committee approved the anchor's budget as presented, except for an adjustment for travel expenses. However, it was felt that the anchor was being too conservative in its estimation of advertising income and it was recommended that the anchor plan on an additional $1000 of income. The Milestone budget was also approved as presented with only a minor ver last year

is due to a need for new photographic equipment, which has not been budgeted for in several years. However, the Appropriations Committee also felt that the photography expense budget could be cut by $100 with the addition of this equipment. The OPUS budget was accepted as presented. The increase over last year is due to higher printing costs. The committee felt that although the Black Coalition's program was good, their proposals were not specific enough, and recommended that when they come up with some definite proposals, they should bring them before next year's Student Congress for funding out of the contingency funci,. A few chartges were' proposed in the SAC budget. Their travel and publicity budgets were trimmed, and it was recommended that SAC try to generate more income from some of their events, such as Siblings Weekend. It was also felt that SAC could get by with less workers at some of their events, specifically the film series. However, all of the activities sponsored by SAC were

left intact, and it was felt that these > changes would not affect SAC's performance. After reviewing the Student Congress budget, the committee decided that their food services budget could be reduced, while all other items remained intact. The WTAS budget was the most controversial and involved the v largest changes from the proposal to the recommendation. The recommendation was drawn up under the assumption the WTAS would exist in its present form next ^ year. ' , The Appropriations Committee felt that a 36.5-percent increase in student salaries was unjustified, along with $500 for newspaper ads and $2100 for equipment repairs. In the end, a budget similar to last year's was recommended by the committee. The recommendation for the Outing Club was based on the committee's decision that it was inappropriate for the student activity fee to be used for fairly expensive excursions by an organization that is limited in size and in some ways overlaps with SAC. However, the com-

mittee did leave the Outing Club a small budget for publicity to promote its activities. In the past, the Inter-Fraternity Council has been funded to sponsor an allcampus dance during Greek Week. However, it was questioned whether it was necessary to fund a dance where admission is charged, so the committee recommended against funding, with the possibility of the IFC going to the contingency fund next year. With the exception of a $25 adjustment under film rental, the International Relations Club budget was approved as presented. However, it was felt that some of the income from the IRC food fair could be put back into the organization, and the committee recommended that the IRC give back $100 income from next year's food fair. The concert series budget for the Ministry of Christ's People was cut back because the Appropriations Committee felt that MOCP was being overly ambitious. This year, MOCP will spend $3100 on four concerts, and the committee felt (continued on p. 2)

Seminary off-limits to students

by.S. Van Eyl Monday, March 2, marked the opening of the new Cook Research Center at o Western Theological Seminary, with a u w ceremony including the laying of the cornerstone with the traditional copper box containing pictures, s e m i n a r y materials and, oddly enough, a plastic coffee cup. The dedication ceremonies, beginning with an academic convocation, took place the next day. The address, given by John B/ Trotti, librarian at Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, Virginia, was entitled "The Theological Library: In Touch With the Witnesses." After a noon luncheon for the invited guests, Calvin Schmitt, from Jesuit Krauss McCormik Library in Chicago, spoke on "The Changing and Unchanging Role of the Library Within a Theological Seminary." During the remainder of the afternoon, tours were conducted for the Hope faculty and staff. The evening worship service of dedication was held in Dimnent Chapel. The Hope. Chapel Choir sang, and the dedicatory address was delivered by N. J. Kansfield, librarian of John Walter Beardslee Library. The address was titled: "To Write The Books the World Cannot Contain." At the end of the service, Carl A. Droppers of the architectural firm presented the seminary with the key to the building. After the ceremony, the audience followed the procession to the transept connecting the older building with the new addition. Another, brief ceremony was conducted there, and the building was officially opened. Plans for the Cook Research Center originally began five years ago, when the school looked at its present and future space needs. The thought of using Zwemer Hall, a seminary dormitory, had been discussed but because of the age of the building and the number of times it had been remodeled, the cost estimates were appreciably greater than an-

ticipated. Hence, the idea of a new building began to take place. To help Western blend in better with Hope's campus, the decision was made to build upward instead of outward. Zwemer Hall was torn down and the $4.2 million Cook Research Center constructed. The 115 year old seminary now has 25,000 additional square feet of floor space, an increase of nearly 75 percent. The first floor and mezzanine contain basic research material, card catalogs, and an office meeting room. The second through fifth floors contain 80,000 volumes E a c h floor has a seminar room, a small typing room and twelve carrels placed near windows and out of traffic paths. The sixth floor contains a faculty lounge and a conference area, complete with a kitchenette, for guilds and consistories to hold special meetings and luncheons; it also has a r a r e book collection with some editions dating back to the early days of the printing press. Finally, there are two special study rooms for pastors and professors on study and sabbatical leave. The basement houses video tape facilities. With the development of this new center, many Hope students quickly found their way over, but because of the lack of study carrels, Beardslee Library has instituted some new policies for nonseminary students. They are as follows; 1. Except in special instances (please see number 4, below), Hope students will not any longer be able to use Beardslee Library for study space. The facilities of this library have been designed for and a r e limited to graduate-level study use. 2. Any Hope student who expects to make any use of the resources of Beardslee Library is required to register with the library staff and obtain a library privilege card. 3. Each time a Hope stydent (who has met the requirements of number 2. above) desires to use the Beardslee Library collection, he/she shall present

that by cutting back to three concerts and co-ordinating a fourth with the Black Coalition, MOCP could serve the s a m e function for $2400.• s

The Mortar Board has not been funded for several years out of the activities fee. except for specific programs such as last year's film series, which were funded out of the contingency fund. For next year. Mortar Board requested a general operating budget, but the Appropriations Committee felt that the organization needed to have a specific budget and recommended that it come to the contingency fund next year when it comes up with a definite proposal. The final item on the budget is the contingency fund. This is the portion of the activities fee which is reserved for any immediate need situations which may arise during the year. This year the contingency fund has been used to send anchor staff members

to a workshop in Chicago, to send another group of students to a conference on the role of women in colleges, to help the OPUS handle an unexpected increase in printing costs, and to replace a reel-toreel tape deck for WTAS. Since the Appropriations Committee has recommended that several organizations go to the contingency fund after developing plans for next year, it will be necessary to maintain a higher contingency fund. These budget recommendations will now be passed on to Student Congress for final action at the next meeting At this time all organizations can appeal any recommendations to Student Congress. This meeting will be held on March 18 at 10 p.m. in the Alley and will be open to all students. Then, pending approval by the Campus Life Board, the budgets passed at this time will become the final operating budgets for these organizations for the 1981-82 school year.

Band gives 110% by David Nieuwkoop "We're gonna play everything Pure Prarle League can do," said Mike Reilly, bassist and vocalist. "After a while people expect to hear tunes like 'Amle', and pigeon-hole us...but people are always gonna be rockin', and we're starting to rock and roll." And rock and roll was the theme of last Wednesday's concert as shelves of speakers provided more-than-ample sound. Starting with the dynamic sounds of 240 Front at 8 p.m., the seemingly conservative audience, with Intermittent bellows of "Amle", awaited the 'countrified Mid-western rock' tunes of Pure Prarle League. Concert selections ranged from the mellow sounds of "Let Me Love You Tonight" to a foot stomping, hand clapping sing-along, "I'll Be Damned." Other tunes Included In the approximately 90-mlnute concert were, "Lifetime Of A Nighttime," "Don't Keep Me Hangln'," "Two Lane Highway," "Freeform Man" and, as you probably guessed, "Amle." "We'll play anywhere they want us, " said Rellly. "But colleges are the best spots for us. The band Is not Into playing for younger audiences... they're just not

will still include the new student area on the lower level, but will retain the present Kletz area for the students as well. This decision was made in response to an outcry on the part of students who felt that the changes in store for the DeWitt Center were unfair both to the students presently at Hope and to those individuals who originally envisioned DeWitt as a student center. We feel it is commendable that the administration has looked past its fast-forming plans to lake into account what the students want, and to alter those plans accordingly. When it is recognized that the college exists largely to serve the students, and that they therefore should be a vital part of the decision-making process, the institution is likely to

If someone needs to explain to you why you don't throw frisbees in the hall,. go back and check with your second grade teacher (was that last year?) and have him/her explain. 4.1 don't understand your fourth point, except I would not have been a s wellmannered as Public Safety if you interfered with a practice I was conducting or participating in. 5. If Public Safety cannot answer your question ,4Why can't I play basketball," I think I can. Have you ever heard of being mature enough to take turns? 6. It is not President Van Wylen's job to solve Dow Center squabbles. Do you go to President Reagan for a township-level dispute? 7. If you wish to protest irrationality fn this situation, it is not fair to take matters in your own hands and play basketball anyway. Is it right to break rules just because they don't happen to be in your

own best personal interest? 8. If you look at your own commandments 1-7, and you still wonder why you are threatened with arrest, I sincerely doubt you have the intelligence to read this. 9. 14Admit that you were wrong and go home." This is the first and only portion of your letter which was a sensible idea. Are you sure someone else didn't write that part for you? 10. If a survey were conducted of the thousands of people who contributed to the Dow Center fund, I a m sure the vast majority would not mind, and would probably prefer, times for the building to be set aside for varsity practices. The Dow Center is designed by its very nature to maximize student and not athletic team participation. Could you please try to look at the overall picture and not one specific incident?

The country would be in turmoil if there had never been a Russia or a communist party.

Revolutions in Central America are typically anti-American. But who is to blame for this? the Russians? or the Americans? And often the most obvious ^ revolutionaries are Marxists. Often they jjj are conspicuous because they are better 3* organized, often because the U.S. finds it 5 to its own advantage to make the com- g munists the more conspicuous of the g revolutionaries. Whichever the case, these Marxists are almost always nationalists, and not pro-Moscow. Are we still so unsophisticated in our outlook that we cannot see the difference between a Marxist and a Soviet? "In private, top State Department officials and U.S. diplomats on the scene play down the Cuban role • • • • These officials acknowledge that there is little evidence to support allegations of a heavy supply of a r m s from Cuba." Washington Post Yet in public we are told that we a r e facing another red menace. If the left in El Salvador turns towards the Soviet Union for help (and they almost certainly will) it will be because they are faced with fighting a superpower — the U.S. America will drive the left into an alliance with the Soviets! Allow me to place Sinclair's words in the proper context one more time. "No long-range policy can exist without the support of the American people, as we saw in Vietnam." How true! But even truer — no long-range policy can exist without the support of the El Salvadorean people, as we learned with the Vietnamese in Vietnam. The government we back in El Salvador is doomed to fail, and the more pressure we apply to keep it in power leads only to more needless slaughter, and the temptation to those who a r e suffering to turn to the Soviet Union for help grows.

Van Wylen explains college costs

by William K. Anderson and Gordon J. Van Wylen In the first article in this two-part series, we noted that tuition covers 75-80 percent of the cost of an education at Hope, that federal and state financial aid o x: programs cover about 25 percent of the u c charges for tuition, and that next year o tuition and scholarship grants are U O budgeted at $1,030,000. In this article, we U take a more long-range view and address j the issue of how the matter of charges to oj students and the cost of education can be Cd addressed in the future so that a Hope O education can continue to be available to X all qualified applicants. As noted in the last article, there are three ways in which this question can be addressed: 1. Reduce costs. Our goal in this regard is to reduce costs without sacrificing quality. In recent years, the college installed a primary electrical system, replaced incandescent campus lighting with more efficient lights, installed its own telephone system, insulated many campus buildings, and installed other energy-saving devices. Other costreduction steps have been taken, such as greater use of the computer in business operations, use of fuel-efficient cars, and the purchase of two diesel-powered buses. All of these measures have helped to keep costs down, even though the actual dollar amounts have increased because of inflation. Many additional steps along these lines are under study at this time and will be implemented in the months ahead. One of

the primary reasons for selecting an its Endowment Fund, which presently earth-sheltered building in the future has a value of $6,200,000, and from development of the campus was to reduce temporary investments (which simply energy costs. means that the college keeps all of its What other steps can be taken?

The balance is used for operating expenses, thus further reducing the charges to students. In addition, Hope receives income from

At this time, the economy at both the state and national levels is such that funding for these programs is not only keeping up with inflation, but in some cases is being actually reduced. If these measures, along with such actions in other sectors of the budget, succeed in reducing inflation, we will all benefit. But continued funding of financial-aid programs is of concern to all of us at Hope and warrants our careful attention.

by Eric J . Sivertson Hope claims to be a Christian college; one can read that on page 25 of the Hope catalog. One can also read there that Hope has a Christian campus. One might think from reading this that Hope has Christian ideals, that student and faculty members a r e commited to the Christian faith. But not so. If Hope is commited to serving Jesus Christ, where is the proof? Hungry people a r e not being fed. Only token gestures are made for the hungry: a day of fasting, sending a cow to some country. Are the sick being healed? Are the blind seeing? Are the crippled walking? Is anyone going hungry or cold so a brother could have more? Hope is dedicated to making sure we all find our niche in life. Jesus never did fit into society; that is why they killed him. Does Hope's Christian commitment in any way resemble New Testament Christianity? Yes, I am pointing the finger at Hope, labeling it blatant hypocrisy to call ourselves a Christian college. Of course Christianity as an idea with ideals exists here. But it was taking risks that got Jesus, and other New Testament Christians, in trouble. Jesus risked being stoned to death by an angry crowd to protect a whore. Stephen forgave the men that were stoning him and they threw all the harder. However, the Christianity here is risk-free; when the Christian groups on campus ask members to bring a friend to

a Bible study or prayer meeting they bring, you guessed it. another Christian. I say Hope's Christianity, claiming to relate itself to New Testament Christlikeness, is not fair, but closer to apostasy than one would care to think. What does a Christian do if he is accused of being a hypocrite? Certainly trying to retaliate only proves that he is. We are all conscious of our shortcomings; but when one ignores his shortcomings and finally integrates them into his value system enough to not be questioned by a still, small voice, then one is in danger of eternal misery. So let's change! Let's commit our lives to Christ instead of simply accepting Him. Commitment means growth. Acceptance is only the beginning. A Christian college does not need people from different religious backgrounds to be a better place for learning. A place for higher education does. A lot of people think that being confronted with other religions helps faith grow. The Bible says that faith comes by hearing the Word of God, not by the tribulation that comes from fighting against other religions. A Christian college needs to have all teachers be Christ-like people, and to train people for service to Christ via His people. One can't go to college to learn to be a Christian; it's a matter of inner affirmation to the presence of the Holy Spirit and daily affirming Christ by being controlled by the Holy Spirit of God. Hope's ambiguity in presenting itself as a Christian college leaves one with questions, but only after experiencing Hope can one see that it is not Christian, but that its professed Christianity is a facade for fooling supporters and contributors. This ambiguity breeds indifference among some people who are here to have their Christian character developed. Hope is historically Christian. It used to be a training ground for Reformed Church pastors. Somewhere they curtailed the spiritual development of men, compromising for the more popular and useful "wholeperson" idea.

Commentary Is Hope Christian?

The Pulse

Saga put before students by Anne Brown and Ingrid Anderson May 30 could mark the end of the legend of Saga; plans to replace Saga, Hope's food service for the last twelve years, with a new food service, Western Enterprises, Inc, are under consideration by the administration. We asked 47 students, randomly selected from the college phone book, "Do you think that Saga should be replaced by a new food service?" The response was as follows:

Yes No I don't know

64% 17% 19%

Almost all those who said "yes" commented on the poor quality of the food; one student stated, "The food quality is really poor, except when they're trying to impress somebody." Another student, a Saga employee, said, "I work there and I know what's going on — the food is of poor quality." However, another Saga worker said: "The food is good as it is. Everybody has to gripe about something." Several who said "no" felt Saga had improved within the last year; said one student, "They're doing better than last year and they're not doing any worse than they have in the past."

One possibility which we are considering is to increase the number of campus jobs available to students. Many students already have such employment, but we a r e exploring ways in which this can be increased. There is one problem which arises more frequently than it should; namely, some students leave their jobs a f e ^ weeks before the end of the semester so that they can concentrate on studies. Obviously, this makes it difficult to operate the college during that period and we may need to find creative ways to address this problem. As a college, we are committed to doing our best in each of these areas — reducing costs, increasing non-tuition income and increasing the financial-aid resources and the work opportunities available. We welcome the counsel and support of the entire Hope community in these endeavors.

Students travel to Tokyo, Japan J a m e s Piers From May 16 to June 20, a select group of Hope students, f r o m a variety of disciplines, will take part in a 5-week, 5semester-hour seminar in J a p a n . The seminar will be the second phase of the Hope - Meiji Gakuin Joint International Seminar on Contemporary Social and Economic Issues; the first phase of the seminar took place during the fall of 1980, when 15 Meiji Gakuin University students spent a month on Hope's campus, auditing classes and interacting with Hope students. Tokyo will be the site of four weeks of the program. The city itself deserves study as the center of national administration, education and economy, as well as a unique mixture of old and new. The Imperial Palace, the serene and elaborately designed landscape gardens, and the traditional Kaduki and Noh theatres provide a great contrast to the highly Westernized and technologically advanced commercial and international administration a r e a s of Tokyo. While in Tokyo, the students will be housed at the Asia center; this international center will offer students the opportunity to make informal contact with its other residents, many of whom are from India, Pakistan, South America, J a p a n and Western Europe. Since Meiji Gakuin is a 45-minute subway trip from the Asia Center, the students will also have the opportunity to experience the Tokyo subway and train systems, as well as Tokyo morning rush hours. (In past years, this experience has offered the students the opportunity to observe and c o m p a r e the p a s s i v e , a c c e p t i n g , regimented responses of many Japanese to extreme crowding with the more aggressive and hostile responses of Americans in similar situations.) The seminar will be carried out on the Meiji Gakuin campus. It will consist of interdisciplinary study in the a r e a s of Japanese history, culture, religions (including Christianity), sociology and economics. A beginning course in the J a p a n e s e language will also be included. The students will spend four days a week in the seminar. Lectures will be presented by scholars and professional l e a d e r s , including e x p e r t s in international relations, marketing, postwar J a p a n e s e economics,' comparative religions, family sociology, journalism, social work and child welfare.

if

Another extremely important component of the seminar will be the formal and informal contact students will have with students of Meiji Gakuin. These interactions, and two one-night weekend visits with J a p a n e s e families, will provide students with a deeper immersion in the J a p a n e s e culture, encourage further discussion of academic materials, facilitate use of "survival J a p a n e s e " and offer them the opportunity to become participant observers. What will the students study? They will study J a p a n ' s group-oriented society ; the J a p a n e s e loyalty to ones company; the J a p a n e s e mate selection process and family system; the J a p a n e s e respect for the law and their low crime rate; the highly competitive education system; the role of woman in J a p a n ; the role of Christianity in Japan, and much more. The^tudents will learn of the Japanese hospitality, sensitivity, and generosity. They will learn to understand and respect the J a p a n e s e culture, its structure and

logic. Finally, they will learn that they share many characteristics with the Japanese. Said one student who participated in the seminar last year: "This experience has opened my eyes and encouraged in m e a healthy respect for other cultures. I have grown and I have changed. I have found I can no longer evaluate others using my definitions; 1 must understand their culture and traditions." Students interested in more information on this year's seminar should contact Professor J a m e s Piers, Graves 4B, immediately or attend a special information meeting on Tuesday, March 17, at 7:00 P.M. in Graves 102. Students who participated in last year's program will be available at the information meeting to answer questions and comment on the program.

Military strength has advantages by Craig Potter Sinclair Last week I spoke of the necessity of having a diversified nuclear a r m s capability, enabling us to fight a limited war against the Soviets. One might argue against any nuclear war, saying that even in its smallest form it will ultimately escalate into an all-out war. But one must consider the original cause behind the deadlock of massive nuclear a r m s that presently exists. The mutual fear between the United States and Russia of all-out nuclear war makes its possibility minimal. At present it is nearly impossible for one country to destroy another's missile force completely enough to ensure against counter-attack. With their remaining forces, the enemy could retaliate upon the offender's cities. Considering the destruction that would result, there is little chance either we or the Russians would be willing to take an all-out offensive. This leaves us with the reality of small tactical nuclear weapons that can be used in the battlefield with as much effect as some of the larger conventional weapons. The same controlling fear would continue to guard against escalation. Also last week I mentioned that El Salvador would be a good place to start in our effort to oppose Soviet agression. Here is an area where our new president needs to be warned. The El Salvadorian president, Jose Napoleon Duarte, has said that he wants no more American advisors while he is attempting to make amends with the revolutionary left wing of his country. With no popular support. El Salvador could turn into another Vietnam, although the american people would not allow it. Also, when a country like El Salvador is trying to re-organize itself,

the development process should be left to itself to develop strength not dependent on outside help of any kind. While President Reagan gives "tough talk" about El Salvador, other areas are left untended. In order to break the resistance in Afghanistan, the Soviets have cut off the gurillas' food supply, killing their cattle and burning the crops; consequently many of the resistance soldiers a r e starving to death, without any outside help. Soon Afghanistan will be merely another extension of the Soviet empire. Another area where the Russians are asserting themselves is in Chad. Chad is a large country, twice the size of Texas. The Soviet-dominated dictator of Libya, Moammar Khadafy, is planning a seizure of Chad as a beginning for his sovietbacked plan to threaten the Sudan, gain control of the Nile, and then gain control of more of the Middle East. We a r e sending advisors to El Salvador while these threats exist. It seems that limited wars a r e inevitable. With the deadlock in massive nuclear a r m s , the use of tactical weapons is the only forseeable alternative in the present nuclear age. In the continuing conflict with the

Russians, agression in small devleoping countries will have to be checked, and Reagan is realizing this in his support of El Salvador ; but, he needs to be reminded that our support should only be used where the home government is no longer in control, and no attempt is being made to build from within. This is not the condition of El Salvador, while other countries need our help. American pressure is needed, but it will have a more positive effect in some areas than others.

UWL protestors reveal position by Meg Biggerstaff A confusion seems to be centering around the group of students protesting the renovation of the DeWitt Student and Cultural Center. I'd like to try to clear up some of that confusion, if I may. ProV.O.C. (Voice of Choice) is a student committee concerned about the DeWitt Student and Cultural Center. Our objections to the renovation of the building are rooted in the fact that what is to function as the student union is again being placed in the basement of the administration building. A comparable analogy would be to move the library back into Graves, or the theatre to Lubbers Loft and then use the auditorium for a lecture hall. Why are these analogies valid? Well, first, because of the drastic reduction in space from what the students had available for their use before the fire (19,700 sq. ft., which included the ballroom, student/faculty lounge, art gallery, balcony, Kletz, bowling alley. Pit and gameroom) to what they will have should the proposal to renovate be carried out (9650 sq. ft., which includes the current student offices — SAC, SC, OPUS, anchor and Milestone: former Pit and Gameroom; new Alley; and sunken patio). The other reason the analogy is valid is that what was designed as a student center would be serving a function contrary to its original purpose not only in philosophy, but in s t r u c t u r a l effectiveness as well. Of course, the renovations will change much of this, but the aesthetic value of DeWitt will be lost in the process. Pro-V.O.C. believes that there a r e many changes that could take place within the Student Center that would better answer the needs of students, cause less structural change and not violate the purpose of a student union. For example: moving WTAS to the building, establishing a student-run grocery, and designing an all-purpose meeting room for group use such as OPUS readings, FCA, IV, FCS, Black Coalition and IRC. These organizations and functions would properly be placed in the Student Center because they are student oriented and operated. A second mosconception associated with our group has been compounded by the misleading or false information presented to the student body. Last week's editorial slating the earth sheltered building as the administration building is a prime example. The underground building, according to the architectural plans, is for the education department and economics and business

^

administration department, as well as the bookstore and a possible lounge/study area. The administration will be housed entirely within the DeWitt Student and Cultural Center should the plans for renovation be carried out. Student Services, slated for the first level of the DeWitt Center, translates into Admissions Office, Student Affairs Office and the Registrar's and Records Offices (anchor, Feb. 12). These offices will replace the present Kletz and bookstore. Pro-V.O.C. holds no objection to the underground facility but we are seriously concerned about what is happening to DeWitt.

V.O.C. Certainly, if the anchor editorial offers faulty information, there is much confusion over the issue. After you have become clear about the DeWitt renovation I ask that you make a conscious decision of support, either for or against the plans. I then urge you to demonstrate your support by writing a letter to the anchor, talking to other students about the issue, telling your Student Congress representative how you feel, giving your approval to the administration, or signing a petition in opposition to the plans. You might have a choice; please voice it.

Public Safety no longer a joke? by Robert G. Wilkie "Public Safety Increases Ranks; Certified Police Officers Added." This headline in the Feb. 12 anchor heralded a new attitude at Hope. The hiring of four professional security employees to implement a campus protection program represents an unprecedented action to raise the present Public Safety bureau to a level of competence. These new officers should provide the leadership and skill necessary to maintain an efficiently run campus security operation. Let us hope so. But, alas, with this new-found level of competence, we must bid a fond farewell to the many laughable moments and situations we experienced at Public Safety's expense. Gone are the days when, on a bleak and blustery Friday evening, a sole Public Safety officer stands writing a parking ticket in an all but empty Columbia lot while a co-ed is being molested in the Pine Grove. Gone are those happy times spent waiting 30 to 45 minutes before an officer arrives to open the door. No more can one look forward to signing one's life away (not to mention the legal rights to one's first-born male child) in triplicate when trying to report a lost set of keys. Gone are those dull Fridy nights brightened by the sight of the "official golf c a r t " being ridden up and down the steps of the DeWitt Center by the officer on duty. Gone are the quiet evenings of dinner conversation in Phelps Hall, interrupted by the obnoxious blare of static from a walkie-talkie propped up on a table with

Timeless investments in elegance.

A final misconception about Pro-V.O.C. is that we are a faction of theatre people out to cause trouble for the administration. Not only is this a slander against the theatre department, but it totally m i s r e p r e s e n t s Pro-V.O.C.'s purpose. The theatre was used, as was the art gallery, as an example of the cultural aspects of DeWitt; in no way a r e their needs the only needs to be considered. I urge students to clear up their confusion about the renovation of the DeWitt Student and Cultural Center by talking to Dave Vanderwel in the Student Affairs Office, their Student Congress Representative or a member of Pro-

And finally we must say good-bye to those cryptic reports seen in the anchor explaining how the "alleged perpetrators

were apprehended alter high-speed pursuit," when the incident involved two six-year-olds playing hide and seek. Even though we may lose some levity, the extinction of these comic phenomena can only mean a safer c a m p u s and a more efficiently run security organization. Public Safety, welcome to the age of competence, proficiency and maybe even respect. Roger, 10-4 and out.

Chapel Choir goes to California by Diana Beyer The 68-member Chapel Choir is among the many Hope groups preparing for special trips during spring break. In past years the choir has toured in the East, Midwest, West and twice in Europe, 1967 and 1979. This year's choir is very enthused about the trip to California. According to Roger Rietberg, choir director, ''Because of the length and distance we don't make this

trip very often — usually every four to six years." In 1975 a 40-member choir toured California. The group will bus from Holland to Denver via Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska. From Denver the choir will split in two and fly to San Francisco, where members will again board buses for the trip through Southern California. The choir will return from Los Angeles via plane and arrive in Holland around 2 a.m.

Friday, April 3. The college budgeted for the tour on the basis of three proposed budgets submitted by Rietberg in the fall. One budget reflected the cost of busing to and from California, the second reflected the cost of flying both ways and the accepted budget covers the cost of busing halfway to California and flying the rest of the way. "This was felt to be the best way

because the choir will be able to visit more churches, as there are few Reformed churches between Denver and San Francisco, and the choir will avoid the exhaustion of spending too much time on the bus traveling nonstop," Rietberg stated. Due to the added cost of flying, each member has been asked to contribute $75 and pay for his/her lunches and incidental expenses along the way. The churches will provide dinners for the group and host families will provide housing and breakfasts. Once in California, tour highlights will include an afternoon in San Francisco, one at Disneyland, and possible visits to several large universities and the state's capital, Sacramento. Perhaps the biggest thrill will be the choir's participation in Sunday morning worship services at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California. Robert Schuller, speaker at Hope's Fall Convocation, will preside. At that time Hope President Gordon J. Van Wylen will join the choir and will also attend a luncheon given in conjunction with the choir's visit to the cathedral. The worship service will ^ R ^ j a d c a s t some weeks later on "Hour ol Power." The choir's program consists of five groups of anthems: one each by the men's and women's choirs, and three groups representing anthems from the 16th century to the present sung by the entire choir. In between the men's and women's ^ g r o u p s two sets of choir members alternate each day in introducing themselves to the congregation. Each gives his name, home town, and major and explains why he chose Hope. "The tour provides an opportunity for the choir to sing some of the great choral literature in concert at a number of Reformed churches," continued Rietberg. "It helps to cement the ties between the College and the churches. The students always appreciate the opportunity to relate to the members of each church where they stay," he explained.

Tentative plans indicate departure from Detroit on May 14, with a return date 17 days later after stops in a number of major German cities, including Frankfurt, Munich, Nurenberg and Berlin (East and West). The program will include trips to museums and art galleries, as well as visits to the theater and cultural and academic institutitons. The grant money will make it possible to reduce the cost of such a program by approximately $400 per participant.

Dutchmen face Calvin victory b\ Tim Taylor Once again, the Flying Dutchmen have caught the bouquet instead of throwing it. This w as their fate after suffering a 69-67 setback to Calvin in the MIAA playoffs for the right to advance to the NCAA Division III Regionals which occurred last weekend. Hope was in a solid position to take the MIAA s spot in the regionals as they led 33-32 at the half and 5349 when Calvin's Mark Grasmeyer fouled out, with 9:03 remaining. The Orange and Blue didn't capitalize, however, and a 20-footer by Jerry Mastenbrook tied the game for Calvin at 57. with6:36 left. The Knights then pulled ahead to a sixpoint advantage, 65-59. and they kept the lead for the rest of the gane;'Paul Ten

Brink's tip-in with 14 seconds left put the last nail in the Dutchmen's coffin for the final margin. Hope was led by Matt Neil with 16 points and 10 rebounds, while Jeff Heerdt added 15 points and 12 rebounds. Calvin went on to the Mideast Regional, losing to fourth-ranked Wittenberg and also Wabash. End-of-the-season statistics showed Neil as the leader for Hope, with Scott Benson charging close behind; Neil accumulated 354 points for the season while Benson racked up 344. Neil, however, was by far the leading rebounder, with 156, and Beckman trailed with 116. In league stats, Neil ranked first in field goal shooting, 59.9 percent, and Beckman also pulled a first place show in free throw shooting, 83.9 percent.

Women's b-boll season comes to a close by Steve Underwood The season came to an end for the Hope women's basketball team in the first round of the S.M.A.I.A.W. basketball tournament on Monday, March 2; in a game played at Aquinas College they fell to a team against whom they'd played two of their best games all year, Calvin College, 66-48. A few weeks ago the Dutch fell one point short in overtime at Jhe Knights' place, but this time they just didn't have enough. Coach Snyder reported that Hope was just 44 flat" for the game while the Knights were really 44 up. ,, Although the Dutchwomen played well in both defense and foul-shooting, the Knights were better this time. In addition Calvin broke the Hope press more easily than in their last contest. Mary Schaap had an excellent game with 16 points and nine rebounds; Lora Hanson added 11 markers. The loss put Hope's final record at 6-16,4-8 MIAA. The Dutchwomen had closed out the «

regular season earlier by splitting a pair of MIAA games. On Tuesday, Feb. 24, they concluded their home schedule by deafeating the Alma Scots, 51-44. According to Snyder, Hope was "patient of offense . . . they worked for the good shot." She also noted that the starting combo had shown signs of jelling as a unit. "They know where each other is," she said. The statistics revealed their shooting prowess as the Dutch connected on 21 of 56 shots for 38 percent (48 percent in the second half), a season high, while Alma was good on just 17 of 74, for 23 percent. Hanson sunk seven of 13, plus a pair of free throws, to lead the scoring with 16 points; she was also credited with three assists and seven rebounds. Faye Berens scored 14 and grabbed eight boards and five steals. Schaap had 11 rebounds. However, the Dutch squandered a 30-22 halftime lead in losing at Olivet last Saturday, 67-61.'The shooting statistics were again the story ; Hope hit 41 percent of their shots before the break, compared to the Comets' 19 percent. The Dutch built their lead up to 12, but then the Comets caught fire. They shot 45 percent in the second half, while Hope was true on 30 percent of their tries. Olivet was also deadly from the line, sinking 17 of 22, 77 percent, compared to 11 of 17 for the Dutch, 65 percent. 4 They fastbreaked on us and it worked . . . we got hesitant on offense," explained Snyder. Hanson matched her shooting performance from the previous game, scoring 17. Berens added 13 markers and snagged 12 rebounds.

Schaap, 10 points, nine rebounds; Cathy Fox, nine points, eight rebounds; and Jody Foy, 10 rebounds, also helped keep Hope in the battle. The Dutchwomen should be pleased with next year's prospects. The youthful cagers will not lose anyone to graduation. Snyder said that youth and inexperience were factors in some of Hope's defeats, but was happy with the team's improvement and determination. Snyder was also glad to see the junior varsity program get rolling; the team
