A.A.B. develops languaqe core

1

At a meeting hold earlier this week, the Academic Affairs Board decided upon a new course outline for the forgeign language core curriculum. The new course outline will make full use of the two-year-old intensive language system in all of the modern language courses 'except Russian). The intensive system will l)e cut down to only four credits for the first semester of the language requirement and three credits tor the second semester. A third, optional, semester of intensive language study for three credits will also be offered. Alter the initial language core was decided upon, the Board further modified the core so that if the the third semester of the language was not taken, the student would have to take the full 12 credit hours from the cultural history requirement. If, on the other hand, the third semester of intensive language was taken, the student could use those last three credit hours to substitute for three credit hours of cultural history. Because of this new relationship between the foreign languages and cultural history they will be combined into a new section called the "Cultural History and 1 .anguage Requirement." According to Jon Huisken. registrar. "There are still some implementation problems that have to be considered" such as students presently in the process of working on their foreign language requirement. Courses such as Russian and the an-

cient languages, which cannot be easily taught in the intensive fashion, will simply be put on an analogous credit-hour framework. Despite the net drop in the actual number of credits of language required in the new system, the language department does not appear displeased with the newsetup. Jacob Nyenhuis. dean for the a r t s and humanities.stated that "while it is less than I would like to see, I feel rt is a compromise we can all live with." The entire project c a m e up for discussion Feb. 12 when the department of foreign languages chairwoman Ruth Todd brought to the Academic Affairs Board a request to review the foreign language core. The languages' present core has been in a state of relative confusion since the introduction of the experimental intensive program two years ago. The original request asked for several changes, the key proposal being that the language requirement be increased up to 10 credit hours. The 10 hours were to be broken down into a "sequence of four master classes and four review and reinforcement classes in the first semester, three master classes and three review and reinforcement classes in the second semester, and three class sessions in the third semester, for a total of 10 hours' credit." This proposal, however, met with strong resistance from most sides. Board members commented that their informal

polling of students revealed a strong disinterest in i n c r e a s i n g l a n g u a g e requirements. Also taken into consideration was that an increased core could turn students away from Hope.

The lecture will be held in Wichers Auditorium at 3:30 p.m. In addition, Anderson will join a group of Hope faculty for dinner Thursday night, have lunch with a group of selected students on Friday, and meet with the senior semester faculty m e m b e r s Friday afternoon. Past Danforth speakers at Hope include Howard Hageman of New Brunswick Theological Seminary, Julian Hartt of Yale University Divinity School, Douglas Meeks of Eden Theological Seminary, Bruce Rigdon of McCormick Theological Seminary, and Richard R. Niebuhr of Harvard University Divinity School.

Grant creates internships —

v. t

Hope students interested in urban internships and environmental studies will gain from a grant awarded this week to David Clark, professor of history, by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The $20,000 award is a demonstration grant to underwrite the costs of new interdisciplinary courses and urban programs formed on technology's Impact on society. Clark developed ideas for the new curricula while a Fellow of the National Humanities Institute at the University of Chicago in 1977-78. Universities and colleges from all over the country nominated faculty for the institute, aimed at developing new approaches to the teaching of humanities. The first p a r t of the newly funded program will be a student internship program in Chicago, centering on Pullman. Built in the 1880s as a model community for workers, Pullman is the best-preserved company-town in America. Inspired by British garden-city designers, George Pullman designed the town to be a culturally uplifting as well as physically healthy environment for the workers who produced the Pullman Sleeping Cars for railroads.

ternships for Hope students in Pullman. Once will involve students in community organizing. They will observe the functioning of several neighborhood associations in various ethnic sections of Chicago. The North Pullman Neighborhood Association will be the special focus, as student interns work with that group as it seeks Federal, state, and city landmark designation and other responses from public agencies. Students Interested in communications, curatorial, and library work can intern at the Historic Pullman Center and the Newberry Library. Historical collections at both places are awaiting cataloging, analysis, and use in exhibits and media presentations about Pullman's history and significance. In another project students will in terview longtime residents of Pullman and families of Dutch descent who formerly lived in the Roseland neighborhood adjacent to Pullman. Interviewers will question the latter group about their flight from Roseland as ethnic residential patterns changed. These interviews will be preserved a s part of an oral-history project about the area. Students participating in these internships will be enrolled in the Chicago Metropolitan Center and its seminars on urban subjects. The Center's liaison person is Harry Boonstra, director of Jlope's libraries, who can answer questions about the program. For specific information about the Pullman internships, students should see Clark in the histor>'department. * The National Endowment for the Humanities grant will also enable Clark and Philip Van Eyl, professor of psychology, to develop a new senior seminar entitled "Environments in History." This will be taught for the first time in the fall semester of 1981, and will deal mainly with urban environments and how they have psychologically conditioned and affected people.

Dornemonn gives lecture William Dornemann, associate professor of German, will present a lecture as part of a series of humahity colloquiums on March 18 at 3; 15 p.m. His lecture on the changing attitudes of Christians during the Crusades will take place in the DeWitt faculty lounge and be followed by a question-and-answer session. Dornemann will present two historical epic poems as examples of these changing attitudes. His lecture will revolve around the Christians wanting to " r e f o r m these b a r b a r i a n s , " but instead finding a cultured, civilized society which caused them to question their true motives and purposes.

icrocomputers

Even you can use 'em Ever dream about being a real live computer jock, even if you are only a philosophy or English major and nave never, ever, seen the inside of the physics-math building? Well, fear no more.

J Thanks to the efforts of the computer science department, Hope has recently purchased 10 new TRS80 microcomputers for use by all, computer freak or not. The biggest benefit of the new computers is that you needn't be taking a course in order to use them; there is no password neccessary. All you have to do is simply turn one on and program your troubles away. This means that those who have only the most basic computer skills can begin to use it for just about anything area in which it could come in handy, from statistics homework to balancing and keeping track of budget expenses. There are even preprogrammed tapes which teach you how to type. For those who don't have the necessary skills or knowledge in the area of computer programming, no need to worry. With each of the computers there is also a small book which takes

the learner through all the principles of c o m p u t e r programming. In short, what the computer science department has done is to convince the school that computers have reached 'the point now where they are no longer for the sole use of those majoring in computer science. The computer has become an every-day occurrence and Hope has met this realization with open access computers. The second asset of the computers (aside from learning to program) is that they provide the perfect chance for students and faculty alike to learn about what computers can't do as well as what they can. If people who are normally on the receiving side of the computers learn now to program them as well, perhaps they will have a better understanding (through experience) of the causes behind computer foul-ups in every day life. The realization that telling a computer what to do may not be all that easy could no doubt further a student's true liberal arts education past the ivy halls. Thus, what the school has really done in purchasing these new computers is to (believe it or not) actually increase the liberal arts attitude of the College-not, for a change, by increased humanities, but rather by increased exposure to technology.

Language requirement changes for the best ^

Hope's recently adopted new foreign language requirement is a welcome alteration in the core curriculum; it also shows a noteworthy case of successful compromise on the part of those administrators involved. The requirement till now has consisted of a nine-hour language requirement and a 12-hour cultural heritage requirement21 hours in all. The requirement as it has been approved now gives the student a choice: he may take either three semesters of a language and three semesters of cultural studies, or two semesters of a language and four semesters of cultural studies. This adds up to either 10 credit hours of a language (the first semester consists of a four-hour course) and nine of culture, -or seven of language and 12 of culture-19 hours total. This is a two-credit-hour drop f r o m the p r e v i o u s total requirement in these areas, yet nothing appears to be omitted, The requirement now merely allows for a student's personal references and career goals to e considered and more effectively met. Further, the lowered number of required credit hours will look more appealing to prospective students. Hope's requirements, it

E

%

must be admitted, are more stringent than those of most colleges; this improvement in the curriculum will help, if only a little, to lessen the load-and, once again, without neglecting any academic area. A significant amount of cooperation and compromise between the departments is evident in this decision. The two previously separate requirements will now be merged under one heading as a single requirement, encompassing the areas . of language and cultural studies. Another significant alteration in the required curriculum was the decision to make all modern language courses used to fill this requirement intensive (with the single exception of Russian) under the Dartmouth system. Thus the system for teaching foreign languages at Hope will be consistent regardless of the language. __ a This development evidences growing unification of the foreign ing ur language _ i a g e department, which,i coupled with the merging of the language and cultural heritage core curriculum, is laudable. Hope might be said to be "getting its act together," and the foreign language department is much the better for it.

Also expressed very often is the concern that, once there, many people forget who they a r e . where they have c o m e f r o m , and w h e r e they're headed.

Nevertheless, I w a s eager to r e a d the Feb. 7 anchor that found its way out here recently. How comforted I was to find repose in that familiar m e s s e n g e r which in the past I found so easy to discard with only a perfunctory glance. Not this time. I read every article. I gloated over "Classtimes may c h a n g e . " I nodded approval a s I read about the new task force to study attrition.

I heartily concur with the writer of the editorial that this should indeed go a long way toward promoting " s o m e s e m b l a n c e of sanity and humanity to one of Hope's time-honored traditions." And it was even done democratically. I noted, by a drawing. "Nice and c a l m and u n d e r s t a t e d - n o fists, no m a c h e t e s , no b l o o d s h e d . " Und e r s t a t e m e n t indeed!

In every c a s e the UN peacekeeping forces have intervened in situations that ha^e reached the conflict stage or could potentially turn into one. Secondly, the parties involved wanted to either avoid or postpone further fighting. Finally, these conflict situations could have constituted a threat on a wider scale: world peace. In addition, the m a j o r world powers generally did not want to involve themselves because they feared that the antagonisms could escalate into a secondary conflict. If they entangled themselves too deeply, they could trigger an explosion of apocalytic proportions. For this reason, the permanent members of the Security Council would not attempt a veto. Particularly encouraging has been the response of smaller m e m b e r states not belonging to the permanent membership of the Security Council. They have been willing to contribute troops, logistical machinery, vehicles, and logistical support in general. For instance, Austria, Poland, Fijji, and Ireland cooperated by sending contingents of men to the Golan Heights between Israel and Syria. The smaller nations a r e reimbursed for the use of their troops and logistical support. The standard r a t e of payment is $680 a man per month. Despite the relatively high cost of maintaining these forces ($200 million in 1979, and $124 million in South Lebanon). Ruedas stressed that the troops a r e needed as buffers in confrontation spots and that "the positive results that have been • achieved f a r outweigh the disadvantages of this operation." Ruedas realizes that there a r e financial problems ar^fl the inability to agree on the vague terms regarding military operations, yet he remains optimistic. He still maintains that the peacekeeping forces constitute the "most cost-effective exercise in the world at this particular t i m e . " He reminded the audience that the United Nations "reflects the world a s it is and not as it should be." Ruedas concluded by saying that "Peacekeeping is a relatively new discipline and we must learn."

Snapping his fingers in syncopated time, with an eye at the past a s well a s the present, is Robert Kraft and his band. The Ivory Coast. In a debut album en-

titled Moods Ing K r a f t runs the gamut f r o m swing to bop, bringing in some tinpan alley and disco. He sounds like a less frenetic version of Dan Hicks on songs for the urban chic like "Who's Seducin' Who?" and "A J u m p for Miles." The steady jive patter delivered in his live material comes on like a cross between an affected Tom Waitts and a Las Vegas lounge singer. His tongue-in-cheek references to the Arfe a n d Leisure section of the newspaper and other soft pinpricks a t contemporary culture make the group more than just a nostalgia act. There is loving suggestion of Cab Calaway delivered with an affection and appreciation of an ignored musical form. Ry Cooder and T a j Mahall have explored similar veins. The sound of guitar, piano, drums, and violin bring to mind the harmonics ensemble of the Hot Licks, or of David Grisman's incarnations. The tunes a r e extremely hummable.

Of the nine songs on the album, all were written by K r a f t Save one instrumental, " H o v e r k r a f t , " the lyrics of K r a f t ' s songs a r e sometimes obtuse, perhaps trying too hard to be witty. Stephen Holden in Rolling Stone went so far as to say that "his aphoristic punning lyrics evoke the speedy a m b i a n c e of contemporary New York City." This is stretching it, but the NY baiting is a s effective a disclaimer statement as any other. In description of a band trying to find a niche, " F a l s e S t a r t " begins: "Strikin' a pose so gladly/Strokin' the rose and hopin* it clicks." It is at once weary and hopeful. "Down in F l a m e s " takes a similar attitude about a relationship that burns rather than cools. "Bon Voyage," a plaintive ballad, is

delivered in a d r e a m y whisper wim s p a r e accompaniment so that it does not become bogged down in sentimentality. Although Kraft does not use any vocal tricks or gimmickry, the lead vocals in many of his songs sound a s if they a r e e n t i r e l y different s i n g e r s - y e t each is evocative of the mood of the piece. He almost swallows the microphone on "A JumpforMiles." The vocals on "Junction Boulevard" reveal an anxiety of indecision about cruising. The scat-singing in "Second N a t u r e " ties together a string of monosyllables that make more sense than most songs on the radio today. Throughout, the listener finds himself snapping his fingers and smiling. Snap, crackle, pop.

load sand in baskets that a r e hauled up from above in return for food and water. Basically, the movie has no plot, no sense of American time; but it is very philosophical. The objective and the subjective become fused together. The spider, the sand, the discovery-what is the significance?
