Structure revision delayed by Gary Gray

M A R G A R E T R O S E as Mistress Ford and Vicki Weidman as Mistress Page plot the p u n i s h m e n t of Sir J o h n Falstaff for his lascivious overtures in a scene f r o m t 4 The Merry Wives of Windsor." T h e theater d e p a r t m e n t ' s third major production begins Thursday. (See story on page 6.)


The Administrative Affairs Board Monday decided to postpone consideration of changes in the college's board and c o m m i t t e e structure until Dr. G o r d o n Van Wylen takes office as president. CHANCELLOR William Vanderlugt made the suggestion that the board hold off sweeping reform in c a m p u s government until the new chief administrator assumes his new post. "Dr. Van Wylen will have to work under this system and it seems a mistake to make changes without his voice in the m a t t e r , " Vanderlugt said. HOWEVER, Dean of Students Robert DeYoung urged the board not to abandon e f f o r t s in this area. He suggested that the AdAB initiate a general review of the structure by people who created it - those involved in drawing up the present guidelines, which were established f o u r years ago. This group, he said, should submit

Police seek suspects in $427 Kletz robbery by Dave DeKok No suspects have been apprehended as yet in the week-old Kletz robbery case. The Kletz was entered and r o b b e d of $427 last Sunday, March 5. A spokesman for the Holland Police said the robbery took place sometime between 1:15 a.m. and 3 : 3 0 p . m . However, evidence apparently found by a janitor indicates that it probably occurred between 1:15 a.m. and 7 : 0 0 a.m., police indicated. The robbery was not discovered until t h e Cultural Center was opened at 3 : 3 0 that afternoon. According to a Kletz employee, a master key was used t o break into the building. The key was broken off in t h e lock and there were no signs of forced entry anywhere, he said. Holland Police revealed that several master keys were unac-

c o u n t e d for and that a t t e m p t s were being made t o discover to w h o m these keys were issued. Hope Project Coordinator Henry Boersma, w h o issued the master keys, stated that his office has a record of w h o got the keys, but that " t h e y were issued in batches t o people w h o applied for them such as Dean Gerrie, J o h n Jackson, and the maintenance department." " I t was up t o these people to decide who got each key and to keep records of t h e m , " Boersma added. Thirty-two master keys t o the Cultural Center were given out this year, he indicated. Saga F o o d manager Jim Case said, "We erred in leaving the m o n e y in the Kletz." He added that the receipts for that weekend were high because of Black Experience Day. Saga carries t h e f t insurance which will cover the loss, Case said.

INFORMAL sessions with Thielemann will be held this aftern o o n , t o m o r r o w and Thursday at 4 p.m. in the sunken lounge of the DCC. In addition, Thielemann will participate in several luncheons and banquets. Tonight at 7 he will be featured at the Winter Sports Banquet. Admission is by invitation only. T O M O R R O W at 7:45 a.m. at a Lenten breakfast in Phelps conference room, Thielemann's topic will be " L a m p l i g h t . " He will speak on " T h e Man Who Did not F o r g e t " t o m o r r o w at n o o n at a luncheon for area clergy. A faculty luncheon in Thielemann's h o n o r will be held Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. in Phelps conference r o o m . Thielemann's visit is sponsored by the religious life committee.

r e c o m m e n d a t i o n s t o the board for changes. THE NEED TO begin work now on this issue was echoed by other board members. Dr. Henry ten Hoor, professor of English, moved that the board " e m p o w e r a small group made up of at least one student and a combination of individuals involved in creating the old structure and other informed faculty and administrators to study problem areas in the present governance structure and make some r e c o m m e n d a t i o n s for review to President VanWylen." Board members tabled selection of the members of the committee until their next meeting. THE AdAB WILL r e c o m m e n d that the president designate a group of his choosing t o f o r m u late a revision of the structure. The group would draw on the information garnered by the group appointed by the AdAB. The board requested that Dean for Academic Affairs Morrette Rider notify all committees who have not met at least twice this year that they are required t o do so. It was noted that the Athletic Committee had not met yet this year. ASSISTANT Dean of S t u d e n t s Nona Kipp, w h o is chairman of the 1973 Welcome Week planning c o m m i t t e e , submitted a proposal to the AdAB requesting that the new calendar be revised to begin classes on Wednesday, August 30. The present calendar calls for classes to c o m m e n c e Friday, September 1. Rider suggested that convocation be held Wednesday night, following the actual c o m m e n c e ment of classes. Board members supported the idea and asked Rider to study the matter f u r t h e r . He will report back t o the board at their next meeting. THE BOARD ALSO received a proposal t o revise regulations in the college catalog regarding the senior residency requirement. The proposal, submitted by DeYoung, Rider, Dr. Eliot Tanis,, professor of mathematics, and Mark DeRoo, provides for exceptions, t o college rules which require all students t o " c o m p l e t e

the final 30 credit hours of the degree program on c a m p u s or in an off-campus program sponsored by the college." THE PROPOSAL will allow a student to take a m a x i m u m of 15 of his final 30 semester hours at another institution if his major departmental chairman approves. If the student seeks permission to complete his entire senior year at another educational institution, approval must be given by both the Student Standing and Appeals C o m m i t t e e and the dean for academic affairs. THE PROPOSAL provides that no student will be graduated from the college who has not spent a minimum of one full academic year as a full-time student on campus during the period in which he has junior or senior standing. Rider explained that early marriages, financial considerations and the need for greater mobility of students had p r o m p t e d the revision of the regulations. The board passed the proposal with little discussion.

Dr. VanWylen to visit campus for conferences Hope's presidential appointee Dr. G o r d o n Van Wylen will spend Friday through the following Monday on campus. He will meet with Build Hope campaign planners at a luncheon and dinner Friday and will talk with faculty from the religion, physics, and psychology departments Friday and Saturday, according t o Chancellor William Vanderlugt. An open house session during which seniors would have a chance to meet Van Wylen may be scheduled for Sunday a f t e r n o o n , but plans were not definite when t t h e anchor went to print. The new president will attend a meeting of the Executive Committee of t h e Board of Trustees Monday, March 21.

A recent Michigan Supreme Court ruling may have left the state with no laws prohibiting the possession of marijuana, according to Chief Justice T h o m a s M. Kavanagh. HOWEVER, a n u m b e r of city officials have been advised to prosecute o f f e n d e r s under local ordinances until the state's new drug control law takes effect April 1. See other stories on marijuana, page 3 T h e new law will provide for a maximum penalty of one year imprisonment or $ 1 0 , 0 0 0 fine for marijuana possession. THE LAW represents part of a wide-sweeping reform of drug statutes. Under the new law pot will be reclassified and taken out of the category of hard drugs. T h e c o u r t ' s decision to reverse the conviction of J o h n Sinclair for the use, possesion, and sale of marijuana has plunged many state officials into c o n f u s i o n regarding the legality of marijuana possession during t h e three-week interim before new laws b e c o m e effective.

SINCLAIR WAS released in mid-December after serving t w o years of his 9 , /2-10 year sentence for possessing two marijuana cigarettes. The Supreme Court ruled that the state's 20-year m i n i m u m sentence for marijuana sale was unfair punishment. In doing so the Court ruled the old state law concerning marijuana unconstitutional. This has caused the c o n f u s i o n at b o t h the local and state levels. SUPREME COURT Justice Swainson was q u o t e d in Saturday's Detroit Free Press as saying.

"I would not suggest that anyone go out and blow p o t . " Asked if the C o u r t ' s ruling creates a loophole which will allow people t o freely indulge in the use of marijuana for three weeks, Chief Justice T h o m a s M. Kavanagh said, "I would say so far as prosecutions are concerned. . . there would be no way of prosecuting them." REPRESENTATIVE Robert Traxler said, " I t is incorrect t o say marijuana is now legal." However, possessing or smoking marijuana "is not legal ( b e t w e e n n o w and April 1) but a prosecuter's burden in establishing guilt would be very d i f f i c u l t , " he added. Those w h o interpret the ruling as a three-week grace period on marijuana may be mistaken. Mayor R o m a n Gribbs of Detroit and other municipal leaders have instructed their law e n f o r c e m e n t agencies t o enforce municipal regulations concerning the use of marijuana. H O L L A N D HAS no such regulation, however, and the legal situation here is extremely c o n f u s e d . continued

Open letter reports tension in Beirut program Editor's n o t e : T h e following letter is f r o m three H o p e p a r t i c i p a n t s in the G L C A Beirut p r o g r a m . In a postscript t h e y indicated t h a t as of March 2 the A m e r i c a n University in Beirut was closed because of a s t u d e n t strike and w o u l d remain so for an i n d e f i n i t e period. We would like to clarify and e l a b o r a t e on certain e l e m e n t s m e n t i o n e d in y o u r article of the F e b r u a r y 14 issue, " B e i r u t program t o c o n t i n u e . " F I R S T O F ALL, the Great Lakes Colleges Association program in Beirut is actually affiliated with three local e d u c a t i o n a l i n s t i t u t i o n s - n o t just the American University of Beirut, as y o u r article i n d i c a t e d .

S E C O N D L Y , the q u e s t i o n of w h e t h e r o r not the p r o g r a m at AUB will be c o n t i n u e d next year is still highly d e b a t a b l e . Virtually f r o m t h e first week t h a t the present G L C A c o n t i n g e n t arrived in L e b a n o n , its p a r t i c i p a n t s , including t h e f a c u l t y advisor, have been c o n t i n u a l l y hassled and threatened in diverse ways by the adm i n i s t r a t i o n of A U B in general, and the p r e s i d e n t ' s o f f i c e , in particular. O u r personal investigations and o b s e r v a t i o n s have led us to the c o n c l u s i o n that the crux of the p r o b l e m rests in President Kirkw o o d ' s failure as an e d u c a t o r t o u n d e r s t a n d the c u r r e n t t r e n d s t h a t have b e e n - and are - developing on university c a m p u s e s t h r o u g h o u t the world. HE IS A MAN resisting change, and he resents the increased student d e m a n d s for a say in the o p e r a t i o n of the s c h o o l as an e n c r o a c h m e n t u p o n his personal power. As a result, K i r k w o o d is a man acting principally out of fear - and he has no shortage of things he t h i n k s he should be afraid of. When one acts out of fear, the easiest thing to d o is t o strike out at the m o s t tangible target. In this case, o n e easily identifiable " p r o b l e m " g r o u p is the b o d y of American j u n i o r - y e a r - a b r o a d s t u d e n t s s t u d y i n g at his university ( J Y A s ) . A L R E A D Y u n p o p u l a r with the s t u d e n t s because of their occupation of would-be Arab s p o t s in the university, as well as u n d e r the critical eye of the a d m i n i s t r a t i o n because of past p r o b l e m s relating t o drug usage, K i r k w o o d has chosen t o inflate legitimate complaints against this g r o u p into an exaggerated case. F o r e x a m p l e , the fear that J Y A s are i m p o s i n g " m i d d l e class" s t a n d a r d s on t h e s t u d e n t s at AUB

It may amuse y o u t o learn that just t h e o p p o s i t e is the case: Playboy's man-on-campus would have a difficult time standing out a m o n g s t the h o r d e s of Arab s t u d e n t s caught up in the golden lure of materialism! The much-publicized student strike of last spring (which arose out of AUB's decision to hike university fees) set the p a t t e r n for united, local, s t u d e n t activism, s o m e t h i n g that had largely been u n h e a r d of here b e f o r e that time. A brief c o n t i n u a t i o n of that strike was u l t i m a t e l y settled this fall when K i r k w o o d r es ponded grudgingly to s t u d e n t d e m a n d s for the r e a d m i t t a n c e of the 22 expelled s t u d e n t council m e m b e r s . H O W E V E R , he still h a r b o r s a deep r e s e n t m e n t against American s t u d e n t s on his c a m p u s , w h o m he chooses t o see as being directly responsible f o r the birth of student " r a d i c a l i s m " within his previously-quiet d o m a i n . There is n o d o u b t that a small n u m b e r of A m e r i c a n and Euro-

pean s t u d e n t s did p a r t i c i p a t e n o m i n a l l y in the spring strike. However, the n o t i o n that any of these s t u d e n t s played a n y t h i n g resembling a leading role is ridiculed by nearly all s t u d e n t and f a c u l t y observers. THIS CONSENSUS notwiths t a n d i n g , K i r k w o o d ' s e x t r e m e fear caused 1971-72 to be designated a "trial y e a r " for JYA g r o u p s at AUB. We were i n f o r m e d in n o u n c e r t a i n t e r m s that ANY infraction of program or university rules, resulting in bad publicity f o r AUB, would force the immediate termination of the G L C A / A U B program in to to.

Guest speakers Reverend Isaac R o t t e n b e r g and Reverend R o n a l d Beyer will lead g r o u p discussions and o t h e r c h u r c h leaders will be on h a n d to o f f e r assistance, Sittser said.

however, and t h e fears and hassles are not over y e t ; despite t h e fairly successful year we have had. With Lebanese n a t i o n a l e l e c t i o n s c o m ing u p in April, t h e r e is sure t o be s o m e kind of t r o u b l e t h a t co u ld close t h e university. Already, t w o c a m p u s " b a t t l e s " (iron bars and chairs sent 15 s t u d e n t s to the hospital) have previewed c o m i n g a t t r a c t i o n s on this issue. The A U B s t u d e n t b o d y is very highly charged, politically, and it is impossible for c a m p u s issues t o remain separated f r o m n a t i o n a l ones. Many local politicians find this fact very useful in the f u r t h e r i n g of their own careers. FEW P E O P L E here are optimistic a b o u t t h e p r o b a b i l i t y of the c u r r e n t semester ever reaching its n o r m a l d e n o u e m e n t - a fact which is very distressing to those J Y A s following the usual academic schedule, with little time or m o n e y to waste in losing a semester. We are not trying t o blow y o u away f r o m the Beirut p r o g r a m : travel over here is great, and the o p p o r t u n i t y f o r foreign study in an English-speaking school is not the easiest thing in the world t o c o m e by. You can have an interesting, e n j o y a b l e time. BUT IF T H E primary consideration backing y o u r readiness to spend the S 3 2 5 0 is that of e x p e c t ing t o have a y e a r ' s foreign study on an academic par with H o p e ' s or if the early t e r m i n a t i o n of o n e ' s year here would seriously injure his school plans - we suggest that such a p p l i c a n t s carefully e x a m i n e this p r o g r a m . Recognizing that any s t u d e n t s seriously considering a G L C A year in Beirut WILL N O T be accurately i n f o r m e d by e i t h e r K e n y o n College or the G L C A , we sympathetically encourage H o p e ' s Beirut a p p l i c a n t s to write t o us f o r a more personal, comprehensive r u n - d o w n on the j o y s and s o r r o w s of foreign study in Beirut.

Twelve resolutions of international import were passed by the 21 delegates, 10 of whom were foreign s t u d e n t s representing their own countries.

Photography okayed

Three new courses ratified by Marjorie DeKam T h e Academic Affairs Board approved three proposed courses in t h e math and art d e p a r t m e n t s at its meeting last Friday. An u p p e r level math course. History of Mathematics; Math 95, Independent Study and Research; and the art d e p a r t m e n t ' s Fundamentals of Photographic Art were the courses approved. The board also passed a directive to the curriculum c o m m i t t e e outlining procedures and guidelines when more than one department is involved in a curriculum change. The directive was proposed by James Reynierse, associate professor of psychology. It states that "a d e p a r t m e n t wishing to endorse a curricular change initiated by a n o t h e r department should provide a written endorsement and rationale t o the chairman of the curriculum committee."

RA applications now available Application f o r m s for the position of resident advisor for the 1972-73 academic year will be available in the Dean of S t u d e n t s Office (Van Raalte 102) starting Thursday, according to Assistant Dean of Students Nona Kipp. Applicants should pick up both an application and reference form and complete and return t h e m by March 20, Miss Kipp said. Selections are expected to be made by April 15. Applications for summer RA positions will be available after spring vacation.

IF THE curriculum c o m m i t t e e feels a curricular change has implications for other departments, it is to consult with those departments. The d e p a r t m e n t a l position should later be submitted in writing t o the chairman of the curriculum c o m m i t t e e . A f t e r turning d o w n History of Mathematics at an earlier meeting at which no math d e p a r t m e n t representative was present, the AAB reconsidered it last week. Dr. Eliot Tanis, chairman of the math d e p a r t m e n t , defended the course. D E S I G N E D for m a t h students in secondary education, half the course will deal with the history of the development of math, and half with mathematical problems of various historical periods. Discussion centered on the one hour allotted this course and the possibility of incorporating it into a larger course. The board considered adding it to Math 89, Teaching of Mathematics in High School, but Tanis indicated that s t u d e n t s would find b o t h courses beneficial. P R O F E S S O R of English Dr. John Hollenbach raised the question of the principles involved in a one h o u r course. Such courses are inadvisable, he said, because they could cause too many small courses for a student in one semester. However, History of Mathematics could be an exception, he conceded. I N D E P E N D E N T Study and Research replaces a senior honors project. It offers independent study for one, t w o or three credit hours. F u n d a m e n t a l s of Photographic Art, a three h o u r art course, will study the basics of p h o t o g r a p h y

and still-photography as an art form. ASSISTANT professor of art Bruce McCombs pointed out that other GLCA schools, such as Antioch College, have more courses in p h o t o g r a p h y . The present art department budget could accommodate the course, he added. Several board members questioned the validity of photography as an art f o r m . " T H I S COURSE seems legitimate as an i n t r o d u c t o r y course, as a n o t h e r way of arriving at the aesthetic principles of other art courses," Hollenbach said. Chairman of the art department Robert Vickers mentioned that prerequisites Art 12 and 39 "provide a critical basis on which the p h o t o g r a p h y course could be more solidy s i t u a t e d . "

Noted astronomer Dr. Stanley Wyatt will c o m e to Hope College March 13-14 as a visiting professor in a s t r o n o m y . The visit is made possible by a grant f r o m the National Science F o u n d a t i o n t o the American Astronomical Society. Wyatt will be the guest of the physics department. Wyatt will present three lectures during his visit. On Monday at 8 : 3 0 a.m. he discussed "Astronomical Distances and the Scale of the Universe" and on Tuesday at 9 ; 3 0 a.m. "A Galaxy Called the Milky Way" will be presented. At the physics seminar on Tuesday at 4 : 3 0 p.m., Wyatt will speak on " T h e Physics of C o m e t s . " All lectures will be held in Physics Math and are open t o the public. Wyatt will also meet informally with Hope physics students to discuss o p p o r t u n i t i e s for advanced study and e m p l o y m e n t in astronomy.

Wyatt received his A.B. degree f r o m D a r t m o u t h and his Ph.D. f r o m Harvard University. His research has been in the areas of galactic structure, external galaxies, and interplanetary physics. Presently a professor of astronomy at the University of Illinois, Wyatt is the author of a n u m b e r of articles and books on astrono m y , and is a member of the American Astronomical Society and the International Astronomical Union.

Dr. Dykstra celebrates 25th ulate the essence of Dykstra it is necessary t o take a cue from the notion of the true story of Hope's answer t o Socrates. A perennial story about chairman Ivan deals with his symbolic destruction of time in the f o r m of a watch. A C C O R D I N G T O legend, in the midst of an intellectual orgy Dykstra was building up t o a time-stopping climax when a watch which he h a p p e n e d t o be twirling spun free and shattered. Dykstra's composure being greater than that of his watch, he wandered around the room collecting the pieces w i t h o u t faltering in his lecture. T h e t r u t h of this tale was c o n f i r m e d by Dykstra. The incident occurred March 16, 1953, he said. O N T H E TOPIC of " t h e Beard," Dykstra was also shockingly candid. Those illustrious whiskers have endured f i f t e e n years upon his well-known visage. T h e exact date of the initial sprouting was S e p t e m b e r 27, 1957. This dispelled the popular misconception that Dykstra was b o m with his imposing mane; • : • •

Reveals past by Ryan Mathews The mystical leader of the philosophy d e p a r t m e n t was lured Thursday into participating in the 25th anniversary of his teaching career by the irreverent young sophists he instructs. T H E SCENE O F this philosophic saturnalia was the faculty lounge, temporarily liberated by those epistomological anarchists euphemistically called philosophy majors. Dr. D. Ivan Dykstra, perhaps the most mythical m e m b e r of the faculty p a n t h e o n , began his career at Hope teaching Greek 25 years ago. INCLUDED IN this educational silver anniversary celebration were two of Dykstra's more infamous former disciples. Chaplain William Hillegonds and Dr. Arthur Jentz. Together this august assembly wandered down the dim paths to the esoteric circles where the true nature of the reality of D. Ivan Dykstra was finally disclosed. IN O R D E R T O achieve an understanding of the " p r i o r quest i o n s " involved in rendering artic-

Cross station. A "Cancer Walk" of t w e n t y miles has also been proposed. Holland businesses will o f f e r d o n a t i o n s based on the number of miles walked and the number of s t u d e n t s participating. " O u r primary goal," said Miss Morris, "is to become involved in the c o m m u n i t y and help whenever n e e d e d . " Women joining Omega Phi will have t o pledge at least ten hours of volunteer work per semester, she added. Officers this year include Jan Weidman, vice president; Sandy Zoodsma, secretary, and Debbie Simons, treasurer. Interested students may call Miss Morris at extension 2103.

Other revelations included a personal note supplied by Chaplain Hillegonds. He recounted when in his earlier days as a "class A j o c k " he had been pulled f r o m a baseball game. HIS PAIN WAS so great that he was unable t o complete his Greek assignment that evening. The result was the systematic persecution of the chaplain under Dykstra's merciless discipline. T h u s was destroyed the popular illusion that Philosophy 13 represents the most insidious f o r m of academic t o r t u r e ever devised. O T H E R U S E F U L insights were offered to those in attendance. They included the revelation that Dykstra was never a Knickerbocker but rather an Addisonian (guess what that means?). To the metaphysical consternation of those present, Dykstra also disclosed that he has not memorized the name of every student on campus. T h e gala event was catered by the H e c k m a n - L a m b Co., and the Norman Wykstra choir provided almost live erTtertaHiment. 4 4 • •

need for " d e c r i m i n a l i z a t i o n " of the weed. DR. WILLIAM E. Bunney Jr., head of the Mental Health Institute's division of narcotics and drug abuse, said that although this year's report was a major one the critical studies remain to be done. Bunney said tests indicate that persons driving under the influence of marijuana exhibit "deficient intellectual performance and p s y c h o m o t o r skills. THE MAJOR surprise of the effects of the weed was the discovery that apparently there is little damage f r o m long term use. "However, the overall question of what dosages, frequency and duration of use are clearly likely to be injurious t o health in various groups and individuals remains unresolved," Bunney said. T H E R E P O R T also f o u n d that marijuana use is as high as 9 0 percent in s o m e groups of high school students. The report added that heavy use of marijuana is associated with use of o t h e r drugs, but there is n o

scientific evidence that marijuana is physiologically addictive or causes use of other drugs. T H E G R O U P decided that further research is needed to determine the effects of marijuana on the c h r o m o s o m e s of women of child-bearing age and w h e t her the drug damages such h u m a n organs as the brain and kidneys.

Kleindienst claims pot destructive to America (CPS) President Nixon may well take a more relaxed, tolerant position on marijuana this year in order t o w o o the y o u t h vote.

" O U R JOB is t o enforce the law, and only that. Marijuana is destructive t o the fabric of America, and must be treated as such. " N o civilized c o u n t r y in the world has legalized marijuana.

Misplaced mandate The Administrative Affairs Board's decision to appoint a group to make recommendations on structure review while postponing actual revision until Dr. Van Wylen takes office is hardly a surprising one. Much sifting of opinion and information must take place before actual structure revision is possible, and it is unlikely that any group could agree on plans for revision before the end of this semester. The board is right in choosing to wait until Van Wylen takes office before initiating changes in the governance setup, for the difficulty of the new president's task would be greatly increased if he were faced with a new system immediately upon taking office. The board is also correct in

creating a group to study suggestions and make recommendations regarding structure changes, because such a task can be carried out effectively only by a small group, and there is no reason to delay its execution. To insure that the group will achieve its purpose, the AdAB should see that it be kept small and that it use the feedback that has already been gathered from the recent faculty meeting and from Student Congress. Though the group should welcome suggestions from individuals, no more time should be wasted in elaborate information-seeking schemes. The one disquieting element in the AdAB decision is the ambiguity surrounding the next stage in structure re-


vision, after the new study group makes its recommendations. The board's plan appears to consist in handing the group's recommendations over to Van Wylen, together with a suggestion that he handle the structure revision question in whatever way he wishes. By recommending that Van Wylen designate "a group of his choosing" to plan changes, the A d A B would be ignoring the principles embodied in the present governance system and would simultaneously create practical difficulties for the new president. To present Van Wylen with an apparent blank check on structure revision would be to leave the door open for the initiation of changes by an appointed group not representative of the campus as a whole. Despite all the hassles, the principle which forms the rationale for the present governance system - that of representation for all members of the college community in campus government - is viable and must be preserved. The AdAB would do better to recommend that a special representative group, with Van Wylen as one member, be formed to plan and carry out structure reform. Other members of the group could be drawn from the three policy-making boards and from Student Congress. By relieving Van Wylen of the responsibility of deciding, by himself and with limited exposure to the present system, what course to take on structure revision, such a measure would simplify his work while securing him a voice in the reform process. A t the same time, all important segments of the campus community would be guaranteed a voice in that process.

'anchor' bias charged We feel that the printing and handling of the article by Ryan Mathews headlined "Double grading standard for blacks disclosed," the cartoon and the editorial were sensational and irresponsible. The anchor succeeded in reinforcing racial prejudices and promoting futher racial misunderstanding and stereotyping on this campus. We are convinced that Mathews, with his small and limited sampling of professors and his use of misquotations which were also out of context, did not prove the existence of a double standard. The implication that all or most blacks would even need or want the help of a double grading standard is as u n f o u n d e d as implying that all or most white students need or want that kind of help. Of course, mi

remedial aid should be provided for all students, b o t h white and black, who need it. The cartoon was a gross distortion of Mathew's already distorted and biased research and reporting. The anchor should have used its time and space to deal with the real problem, touched on in the editorial, of the inadequate academic and social environment for black students on this campus. The emphasis should have been on an immediate demand for a black counselor or counselors and other supportive programs dealing with the unique identity, religous and social needs of black students. Following the immediate development of a worthwhile program for blacks should be active recruitment of a larger number of blacks. An article in the March issue of Psychology Today on black students in white institutions makes this statement: "White colleges that deliberately recruit black students must enroll a few hundred lest they c o n d e m n a small number of black students t o inadequate social lives and intraracial and interracial discord." Hope is also operating under a grave misconception if it believes that just meeting the need for a black counselor and other supportive programs is enough, j Improving the climate of Hope College for blacks and other minority students will demand a strong program dealing with the ignorance and prejudice of whites on this campus. By this we d o n ' t mean occasional weekends concerning racial understanding, but rather a c o m m i t t e d , comprehensive and on-going program, originating perhaps with

the Human Rights Council, in connection with the psychology and sociology departments. Such a program would examine and c o n f r o n t the attitudes and actions, both subtle and overt, of white students, administration and faculty that are maintaining the polarization of blacks and whites at Hope College. Hopefully this could lead to meaningful interaction between the two groups. Ellie Hartgerink and Gil Vernon

Lebbin replies As long as the library circulation system was editorialized last week, it is only fitting that I have an opportunity to present a few " f a c t s " that seemed to have been misplaced. In last week's article on the library, it is implied that the cost of changing to a new system is $600. Personally, I d o n ' t think that $600 is high. However, as I told the reporter, that is only the figure for purchasing the I.D. cards for a semester. To this must be added the cost of leasing the charging equipment and the cost of reprocessing each and every book in the library - to the tune of at least 10c a book times 140,000. A n o t h e r modern system, that of the 3M C o m p a n y , would cost us a mere 15c a b o o k , plus $6,700 for a sensing device, plus $3,000 for neat looking turnstiles (the ones we discarded were $150.00), plus $2,700 for charging equipment. A modest $15,000 to $20,000 is not a bad proposal. In regards to all of the modern colleges, one must either have a computer handy or the card still needs the author, title, call number, and department used for. The clever I.D. card prints only your name and number. We have talked a b o u t requiring the student t o present an I.D. card which we could use for recording the student n u m b e r . However, we discarded that because many people don't always have the I.D. with t h e m . As I said to the anchor reporters, and I'll repeat it: If any group of students or individual student wants to discuss the circulation system now in use and present possible alternatives, the library staff is willing to give you the time. Right now this is the cheapest, most efficient system that allows s t u d e n t s to be treated as individuals and not I.D. numbers and also does not make the library into a fortress. If you can present a n o t h e r that maintains these t w o concepts, see me, Lee Lebbin, director of libraries. Lee Lebbin

Political panty-on by Art Buchwald Copyright Š 1 9 7 2 , Los Angeles Times Syndicate

One of the biggest cliches of American politics is that politicians are no different f r o m a n y b o d y else. " T h e y put on their pants one leg at a t i m e . " Everyone has accepted this without question, and while I hate to destroy another myth I can now reveal a f t e r some very difficult research that politicians are different f r o m other people, at least when it comes t o putting on their pants. THE FIRST CLUE I had to this was when I read a book about Lyndon Johnson and how he dressed when he was President. Mr. Johnson had two Secret Service men hold his pants as he sat on his bed, and he put both legs into them at the same time. this certainly made him different from the rest of us and I decided to pursue the subject of other political leaders. President Nixon, for example, has his valet lay his pants on the bed, and then the valet leaves the room so the President can make his decision in private. He keeps a yellow legal pad by his bedside where he writes out all the alternatives. WILL IT BE BETTER to put his right leg into his pants first, or will it be better to put his left leg? What will be the political repercussions if Jack Anderson finds out how he puts his pants on? Will the electorate think less of him if he puts his pants on like everybody else? What would happen if he didn't put on his pants at all? Occasionally he might ask Henry Kissinger's opinion or call up John Mitchell wondering how he should do it, but the final decision has to be Mr. Nixon's. It is probably the loneliest decision that any President of he United States has t o make. WHEN IT COMES TO putting on his pants, no one agonizes more a b o u t it than Sen. Edmund Muskie. Since he doesn't want to offend either the left or the right he usually sticks his foot into the center of his pants. This, of course, causes complications as it takes him over an hour to put them on and makes him late for his appointments all day long.

Sometimes Sen. Muskie gets so angry when he tries to p u t on his pants that he is short-tempered all day long. His staff has been working on this and hopes to have a solution t o the problem before the July convention. SEN. G E O R G E McGOVERN has a different problem. He has only one pair of pants and he has t o be very careful when he puts t h e m on so that he doesn't tear t h e m . Before becoming a presidential candidate he always put on his shoes first. But when Frank Mankiewicz took over as campaign manager he persuaded McGovern to put on his pants first and then his shoes. This changed McGovem's image overnight and he has lost his serious demeanor, and seems much more relaxed as a candidate. Gov. George Wallace, on the other hand, goes through three pairs of pants before he gets one on. What he does is j u m p out of bed in the morning and he is so excited to get going that he rips the pants as he is trying to get into them. HIS PEOPLE HAVE tried to persuade him to take it easier when he's getting dressed, but Wallace says " N o b o d y , not the Supreme Court, nor those Eastern Establishment press lords nor those Washington bureaucrats are going to tell me how to put on my p a n t s . " Sen. Hubert Humphrey had been identified with President Johnson's hard-line pants policy until late in the 1968 campaign, and many people feel this cost him the election. This year Humphrey no longef has t o worry about Johnson and he has let it be known that when it comes to putting on his pants he's his own man. He has told audiences, "At least now when I put on my pants I no longer have my foot in my m o u t h . " Sen. T e d d y Kennedy refused to say how he puts on his pants in the morning as he was afraid that people would think he was a candidate for the Presidency. But people close to him told me that if there was a deadlock in Miami at the Democratic convention, Kennedy would be willing to put on his pants and accept a draft.

Curriculum reform: a dissenting viewpoint Editor's note: In the following essay, assistant professors of history Earl Curry and William Cohen j o i n t l y present a dissenting view of the proper goal of curriculum reform at Hope. At H o p e a n d at colleges a r o u n d t h e n a t i o n c u r r i c u l u m r e f o r m is t h e rage of t h e d a y . " I n n o v a t i o n " has b e c o m e t h e b y w o r d and a rigid p a t t e r n of " r e q u i r e m e n t s " is increasingly seen as passe, the m o r i b u n d relic of a b y g o n e age.

t h e p u r p o s e s of a liberal arts e d u c a t i o n a n d i n t o the particular situation at Hope College. As we see it, t h e basic aims of a liberal a r t s education are clear. A f t e r having spent f o u r years in college, t h e s t u d e n t should be able t o raise critical q u e s t i o n s a b o u t t h e world in which he lives, and he should have a good idea of t h e process by which he can seek logical and valid answers t o these questions. IN A D D I T I O N , he should have acquired skills by which he can c o m m u n i c a t e his t h o u g h t s on these q u e s t i o n s to others. It is

well enough t o say t h a t a liberal arts e d u c a t i o n should be aimed at t h e " l i b e r a l i z a t i o n " of the stud e n t , but even when d e f i n e d as " f r e e i n g - u p " t h e s t u d e n t , this rem a i n s a vague f o r m u l a t i o n .

Can reason be saoed? by Steve Wykstra Philosophy in the t w e n t i e t h c e n t u r y e x h i b i t s a severe tension, which at times b o r d e r s on schizophrenia. It is a tension which, a l t h o u g h most clearly revealed in p h i l o s o p h y , also pervades the general a t t i t u d e of o u r c u l t u r e t o w a r d reason. And it is a t e n s i o n which p u t s a stress on H o p e College, since it strikes at the very f o u n d a t i o n of the e d u c a t i o n a l enterprise. T H E T E N S I O N in p h i l o s o p h y is visible in the emergence of t w o schools of t h o u g h t , logical positivism and existentialism. Logical positivism develo p e d a m e t h o d which aimed above all at clarity of m e a n i n g and objective criteria of t r u t h . By its rigor of logical analysis, and its insistence u p o n the a p p e a l t o o b s e r v a t i o n as the a r b i t e r of belief, logical positivism h o p e d t o achieve the s t a t u s of scientific p h i l o s o p h y .

It regards intellectual keenness as having a certain value f o r supplying w i t t y diversions d u r i n g those long h o u r s in the Kletz, but regards serious intellectual inquiry as chasing a mirage, w h i c h only the most foolish of t h i r s t y men y e t b o t h e r t o do. Cynical intelligence has a c o h o r t , m a s q u e r a d i n g as an alternative, which also infects American culture. This c o h o r t we might call " m y s t i c a l p s e u d o - t h i n k i n g . " Mystical p s e u d o - t h i n k i n g is a special passion of the serious drug c u l t u r e , which has n o t y e t really hit H o p e College.

'Living WelV: a portrait of the magic years Editor's note: This week's anchor review is written by senior theater major Don Steele. He reviews Living Well is the Best Revenge by Calvin Tomkins (the Viking Press, $5.95). " I t ' s not what we do, but what we do with our minds that counts, and for me only the invented parts of our life had any real meaning." - G e r a l d Murphy to Scott Fitzgerald This is a very short, readable, enjoyable book. The author has handled his subject well, narrowing in on the ten years George and Sara Murphy lived in Furope. Those years had magic. Once they were over, the scrapbook was closed, and no more pictures were taken. TOMKINS T R E A T S his subjects well. While the Murphys could have been overshadowed by

such names as Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Leger, Picasso, and Porter, they aren't, because this book is about the Murphys and their effect on people. We do get glimpses of the more notorious, but the reader's interest in the Murphys doesn't fade. While their friends wrote, sang, danced, painted, and acted, they made an art of living. To make living totally beautiful, interesting, and never e m p t y was their goal. IT'S ALMOST stupid to think of writing a book about some people who really didn't do that much. Somehow though, they weren't stale. The atmosphere doesn't seem useless. They left America in order to live as they wanted, which does not mean they were uninvolved. Certainly no two people were more involved in the era. They seemed to know everyone, and to participate in everything.

SARA HAS been immortalized by Picasso as a woman with strings of pearls down her back; Leger dedicated work to t h e m ; they aided the Diaghilev ballet company. And there is Tender is the Night, Fitzgerald's attempt to capture his friends in the portraits of Dick and Nicole Diver. In a letter to Sara, Fitzgerald made the comment that they had " t h a t little more to spare." And I suppose that is what they wished to accomplish: to rid themselves of all the trivia, and get down to people and living. TOMKIN'S portrait of the time is well done. He doesn't get maudlin, but the reader wishes somehow to be a part of that era when so many influential artists were

'Merry Wives' to open Thurs. in DCC theater The Hope College theater department will present Shakespeare's c o m e d y , " T h e Merry Wives of Windsor," for two weekends beginning Thursday in the theater of the DeWitt Cultural Center. APPEARING in the role of Sir John Falstaff will be professional actor Jon Cranney, a senior member of the acting company at the Tyrone Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis. His wide experience includes roles in 16 Shakespeare productions. Cranney was a member of the Oregon Shakespeare company for three seasons and has directed several productions in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area as well as touring in a one-man show. " M E R R Y WIVES" deals with Falstaff's misadventures as he tries to woo witty young wives of Windsor. The clever women, played by Margaret Rose and Vicki Weidman, scheme together to teach the bragging, fat knight a lesson. There are sundry sub-plots and colorful minor characters. Other members of the large cast include Joanne Kornoelje, David Bast, Assistant Professor of Theater Don Finn, Garrett - De Graff, Gerald Swieringa, Doug

Neumann, Assistant Professor of Art David Smith, Assistant Professor of History Earl Curry, Steve Fvans, and Jim Hale. ALSO ACTING will be Tim Walters, Dan Reevert, Mike Boonstra, Richie Hoehler, Dave Gebhard. Brad Williams, and Connie Demos. In addition to his role as Falstaff, Cranney is directing the production with the assistance of John T a m m i , assistant professor of theater. Set design is by Michael Grindstaff, resident designer for the theater d e p a r t m e n t . COSTUMES ARE by professional designer David Chappell who has already designed two Hope productions, including A Christmas Carol last December. "Merry Wives" will be the theater d e p a r t m e n t ' s first production in a " t h r u s t stage" arrangement with the audience sitting on three sides of the action. The play will be presented March 16-18 and 22-25. Curtain time will be at 8 p.m. General admission is S2.00, students SI.00. Tickets are available at the DCC box office from noon to 5 p.m. daily, or by calling ext. 2248.

together in one place. Perhaps the time actually wasn't so marvelous, but there seems to be poetry there. Gerald Murphy: "Every day was different. Always a new exhibition, or a recital of the new music, or a Dadaist manifestation, or a costume ball in Montparnasse." TWO OF THE best sections in the book are dominated by photographs. The first set are pictures of the Murphys, their friends, their children, until they returned to America in 1933. After t h a t , the albums go no farther. The last chapter is devoted to Murphy's paintings. When he first arrived in Paris he was immediately taken by the new movements, and took lessons from a woman who allowed no one to paint in a representative style. Everything the student saw was to be presented abstractly. IN THE TEN years that followed, he did ten canvases, each an amazing precursor of the Pop art movement of the 1960's. Unfortunately, four have been destroyed, and the rest weren't exhibited for a long time. They deserve to be seen, and Murphy's role in art credited. The book's title comes f r o m an old Portugese saying. Although it would seem to suit the earlier portion of their lives, 1 think it applies more to the years following their return to America. TWO OF THEIR children had died, and Murphy was forced to take over as president of the business he had gone t o Europe to escape. They still tried to create their own lives, even in the face of reality. In one of the best moments in the book, Picasso is quoted as having written to the Murphys in


1962, "1 am well, but that I'm a millionaire and I'm all alone." IT'S A GOOD short book, and a fine addition to the writings dealing with the period. Certainly from the c o m m e n t s in the book, the Murphys exerted quite an influence over the people they knew. Fitzgerald summed it up best: "You are part of our times, part of the history of our race. The people whose lives you've touched directly or indirectly have reacted to the corporate bundle of atoms that's you in a good way."

Natl Players return

The Miser' to be staged The National Players will stage Moliere's " T h e Miser" Wednesday at 8:15 p.m. in the Holland Civic Center. THE PERFORMANCE is the fifth event in the 1971-72 Holland Concert Association's performance series. A critic has termed Moliere's greatest comedy a "perfect illustration of Moliere's greatest gift: making us see ourselves in a particularly ridiculous light and thereby making us laugh at ourselves. "IN THIS PLAY he has given us an expose of one of our less admirable traits: the pennypincher that is in all of us." Alceste, Moliere's misanthropic young protagonist, is the personification of the " p e n n y p i n c h e r in all of us." He revolts against the sham and glitter of court life, and, determined to reject pretense of every kind, makes a strong plea for the "honest m a n . "

IRONICALLY, Alceste falls in love with Celimene, who represents in many ways the courtly vices he detests. "The Miser" is recognized universally as Moliere's undoubted masterpiece. It has been called " t h e most mysterious of Moliere's plays." THE NATIONAL Players form the oldest touring theatrical repertory c o m p a n y in the United States. They have offered over 3,000 performances of classical and modern masterworks of the stage.

Tarr said he expected about 30,000 men to be inducted into the Reserves and the National Guard by the end of this year. He indicated that t h e effect of the decision would be t o push the lottery number ceiling for this year to at least last year's ceiling

of 125 and possibly 20 or 25 numbers higher. It had been expected that the lottery number ceiling this year would only reach 50. Tarr said that first priority would be given to students graduating f r o m colleges in the spring. Tarr also said it is d o u b t f u l that the d r a f t can be ended by President Nixon's announced goal of July, 1973. A more likely date for the d r a f t ' s end would be July, 1975.

Moderates and conservatives split area GOP Editor's note: T h e following is the second in a series of articles dealing with local politics. This week's article is written by political science major and anchor sports editor Merlin Whiteman. He interviews leaders of O t t a w a C o u n t y ' s Republican Party. A review of the Republican Party of O t t a w a County and its leading members shows an ideological rift. In one camp are the middle-of-the-road moderates; in the other, the conservative group controlling the leadership. BRUCE RAYMOND, a member of the moderate group, is presently running Congressman Guy Vanderjagt's Holland office. He is a former professor and business manager at Hope. T o n y Garofalo, a leader of the conservative group, is presently the Ottawa County Republican chairman. An Italian-American and native of Wayne County, he came t o Holland six years ago t o become a partner in a Saugatuck business. RAYMOND WAS a member of a group of Republicans voted out of leadership posts in 1968. Because they failed to elect enough delegates to the county convention who would support t h e m, they lost control of the county executive c o m m i t t e e and the county chairmanship post. In Michigan, the party members vote in August for precinct delegates to the county convention, which elects a group of

DeYoung to sit on CEEB area 'Concerns' comm. Dean of Students Robert De Young has been elected to membership on the Committee for S t u d e n t Concerns of the College Entrance Examination Board's newly created Midwestern Regional Membership. The c o m m i t t e e was one of five elected by the midwestem membership at a recent meeting of its legislative senate. " The college board, whose midwestem region covers thirteen states, is a non-profit association of over 1600 colleges, secondary schools, school systems, scholarship commissions, and educational associations working toward the c o m m o n cause of aiding students and educational institutions in the educational process.

delegates, equal to the n u m b e r of county office nominees, t o sit on a policy-making committee called the executive committee. The county committee elects the county chairman. IN 1968, THE conservative group led by Joel Ver Plank and Garofalo, both of Holland, won control of the local organization. They worked hard, got their delegates' petitions in, got their delegates elected, and controlled the convention and the executive committee. Ver Plank was chairman first, and Garofalo has held the post since '70. RAYMOND IS critical of the present leadership. "A minority controls the party t o d a y , " he said; he doesn't feel the people are trul^ represented. He spoke of better days when his clique controlled the leadership. " T h e party is in sad straits financially; when the middle-ofthe-roaders were in control, 1 know of 50 or so people that were good for $100 or more, but now they give to a congressman or senator - not locally." RAYMOND FEELS the party is more ineffectual than when his group was in office. He points to the " p o o r t u r n o u t " in the autumn election and referendum as an example. Also he feels present leadership does little between elections. He pointed out that the old leaders had paid him to run the daily affairs of the county headquarters; he had also compiled voter registration files, files that he had not given to the new leadership. COUNTY CHAIRMAN Garofalo believes the present leadership does represent the rank and file Republicans. He feels the executive committee "adequately" represents all ways of life, ideologies and occupations in the county. In fact, " t h e r e is a more even balance between sides of issues than four years ago on the executive c o m m i t t e e , " he said. HE POINTED out that the voters in 1970 had not reversed their decision of 1968 for county convention delegates. He feels the split occurred, and that they were winners, because " t h e y (moderates) were not doing what the people wanted them to d o . " Garofalo continued, " Th e y claim to be Republicans, but if they were genuinely interested in the party they would work for any county chairman and give money no matter what. They are

testifies. There is some question, however, as to whether it is an ideological split. POLITICAL science professor Alvin Vanderbush says it is, as does Raymond. The latter placed the current leadership alongside the John Birchers. Garofalo, however, played down ideology: " R a y m o n d and his associates base their claims on subjective evidence rather than objective evidence. "PEOPLE PICK issues rather than ideologies, and one cannot stereotype a person. Basically, they call us conservative because we supported Huber over Romney in the primary." Despite this, and the fact that he personally would not support a presidential bid by Congressman Ashbrook of Ohio, or Huber even if he ran against Governor Milliken, the leadership clique Garofalo represents must be deemed conservative: THEY ARE opposed to a graduated state income tax and the governor's transportation bill; they are critical of the ineffecient ways the local county commissioners spend money; and they are supporters of ultra-conservative state legislator Huber, who spoke recently at Hope. They take a conservative stance on most issues. Garofalo, acting as spokesman for the Ottawa County GOP, had this to say about minority voters in their relationship to the Republican party: " WE ENCOURAGE people from all parts of the general electorate to attend our meetings, which are publicized in the papers. We have not actively sought more Italian or Mexican votes. We don't need to look for them just so we can say we have them." Concerning the new primary law in Michigan: " T h e idea is fine, but the timing is bad. It is going to leave

MERLIN WHITEMAN hypocritical, and Republicans only in an election b o o t h . " He did recognize that the split has hurt the party financially. A lot of big givers were the people who are no longer active, he indicated. GAROFALO ALSO said people are not giving to the party because not giving "is a way they can rebel against, and object to, Griffin and the state central committee." He continued, "Votes, not money, win elections." In a county that is consistently 2-1 Republican, one could probably run an election with practically no funds. THE COUNTY chairman does not consider the organization in Ottawa C o u n t y to be weak. "While there is not much money, we have a lot of loyal people, and are stronger than we were a few years ago." He, unlike R a y m o n d , characterizes last fall's election as a "good showing." There is a split in the Republican party, as the above evidence

very little time to get petitions filed for candidates seeking county convention seats, and will leave little time to cut up the county into precincts." THE MODERATE Raymond called the idea of a party primary "ridiculous." He doesn't like the idea of committed delegates to the national convention; it doesn't leave much room for bargaining, he said. Garofalo feels the GOP is a party that can embrace the y o u t h vote. " T h e Republican party offers them a party that was foresighted enough, and showed enough interest, to enact age of majority laws," he said. " I WOULD prefer that college students vote in their home states, however," he said. HE FEELS their voice can be heard in the party, however. " T h e Republican party is not controlled as much as the Democratic party; union money controls it," he said. " T h e Republican party is much more broadly based financially and socially."

Shinaharger voted all-MIAA for third season by Merlin Whiteman Dan Shinabarger has been named t o the all-Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association basketball team for the third straight season by a vote of the league coaches. Gaining honorable mention laurels for Hope were seniors Jack H a n k a m p and Marty Snoap. SHINABARGER ended the league schedule with a 27.8 points per game average to lead the conference in scoring. His free throw percentage of .821 placed fourth in the final statistics. The former Holland High standout totaled 334 points in twelve games to end his MIAA career with 1,117 points, a sum second only to Floyd Brady. SENIORS HANKAMP and Snoap averaged 10.8 and 12.3 points a game respectively. Hankamp was the seventh leading shooter in the conference, hitting 52 of 105 floor attempts for a .495 percentage. Joining Shinabarger on the allleague squad was another Holland native. Art Tuls of Calvin, the only junior on the first team all-MIAA roster, averaged 16.9 points to earn a berth. LEAGUE champions Olivet placed two players on the allleague team. The Comets carved out the longest winning streak (22) in their history and their best basketball campaign, thanks in large part to senior guard Rick Clack and 6-7 senior center Mike Maciasz. Both played high school ball together at Garden City, Michigan. Maciasz averaged 21.5 a game, good for second along with Alma's Ike Neitring. He was also the COMING ATTRACTIONS: SPRING mid-terms tourists


second leading free throw shooter in the MIAA. Teammate Clack scored 15.8 points a game in league play. ROUNDING OUT the first team was Alma's outstanding athlete Ike Neitring. Ike was the leading field goal shooter in the MIAA this year, hitting 96 of 145 for a torrid .662. His 21.5 ppg average tied Maciasz for second place honors. Second team selections included Calvin seniors Tom Veltkamp and Bob Bosch, Albion junior Damon H u f f m a n , Olivet junior John Martin, and Alma junior Craig Bahle.
