In introducing a new College Board video about sports Feb. 19, Koehler added only 215 of the players ultimately play any professional football.

Cornell University officials told students to take down

Student Diane Scheu's flag and student Nathaniel Brackett's yellow ribbon violated campus prohibitions against dorm displays that could fall and injure passersby. "Although I sympathize with the individual views of students, I can't see why these rules should be bent," administrator Larry Palmer told the Cornell Daily Sun. Separately, the police union in East Lansing, home of Michigan I State University, officially protested a city council order that a police I officer could not wear a yellow ribbon affixed to his uniform.

Dow suffers water damage

Following a recent heavy rainstorm, the Dow Center suffered water damage from leaks in the roof. According to Fred Coates, director of the Physical Plant, the Dow Center roof was in the process of being reroofed and water pockets had developed. With the heavy rain, the water pockets broke and leaked through into the weight room and the "wrestling room" (the dance studio next to the weight room.) According to Coates, there was no damage done to the weightroom, but the floor in the wrestling room did exerience some damage. The damage did somewhat disrupt schedules in both rooms and the wrestling room will not be back to full function until after spring break. The roof is dry now and we shouldn't have any more problems," said Coates. Repair work will be done over spring break.

Latest contraceptive available to U.S.A. by Carrie M a p l e s associate editor Considered a revolution in contraceptives. Norplant is now available in the United States. Norplant is a long-term contraceptive implanted in the upper arm. Norplant releases levonorgestnel - a synthetic form of progesterone - from six tooth-pick size capsules. The capsules are placed in the shape of a fan under the skin of the inner upper arm in out-patient surgery. The time-release system of injecting the hormone into the system allows Norplant to provide birth control for up to five years. The capsules are then removed and can be replaced with another set

As yet another graduation approaches, this year's seniors are facing a change in the traditional graduation ceremony. This year instead of having a professor address the class at graduation an outside speaker is being brought in. Bruce Van Voorst, Hope '54, is that speaker.

I

The reasons the college has for inviting a national speaker should be called into question. Since few seniors will remember who spoke and what they said, the only possible reason for bringing in a 'big name' speaker would be to draw attention to Hope.

i

A national speaker lakes the focus off those who are important and even if that person is a Hope alumni who remembers the school w e l l or has given it large donations--the focus of the afternoon won't be the graduates, common memories or even well-intentioned advice. (•••ANC) SUOUlii WE UELP IRAQ bOTWLSaME. WITH TUQR COUMTE.Y? )

Graduation should be centered around those who have worked four or more years to earn the degree they are receiving and that work should be honored. They should not be sent away from Hope with just another guest lecturer to remember. If everyone is concentrating on who the speaker is and what they have done media coverage of the event will be missing what the whole ceremony is designed to honor. Graduation is supposed to honor what has been learned and accomplished in the years spent here at Hope, not what has been accomplished by someone in the years after they left Hope. Traditionally, the speaker at graduation has been a Hope professor. Having a professor speak keeps the focus of the ceremony on the graduates. A Hope professor will also know many of the people in the

Graduation at Hope should not become the media event as it has at some schools. Inviting well-known speakers for the ceremonies will force those )eing honored and celebrated to take a back seat. Hope prides itself on being a warm, caring place. That tradition of community should be maintained and continue through each student's last day as a member of the Hope community. Ho
