Dunes threatened

Local resort seeks rezoning by T o m O'Brien Carousel Recreation Equities, Inc. is petitioning the Laketown Zoning Board to permit the transf o r m a t i o n of 3 0 0 acres of wooded dunes in and around the Carousel ski area i n t o multiple family a p a r t m e n t s and an area for comercial use. A public hearing on the issue held T h u r s d a y , March 1, was adj o u r n e d until March 29 after opposing a t t o r n e y s claimed that C R E had not presented enough i n f o r m a t i o n arguing for zoning changes. T h e land planned for development runs south f r o m Macatawa t o Castle Park and west f r o m 66th street to Lake Michigan. Sixty-six of the 300 acres slated for development are owned

by CRE and the remaining land is under o p t i o n to them. The plans call for t h e development of multi-family dwellings in the center of the acreage and single family dwellings on the outskirts, totaling 1,881 housing units. C R E also hopes to construct a commercial area centered around t h e northwest corner of 6 6 t h Street and 146th Ave. This area would include a shopping center, a gas station and a convention hotel. CRE puts a $53 million tag on the completed development. George Bauws, zoning administrator and building inspector for L a k e t o w n township, said "Presently the zoning allows for single and d o u b l e family units. C R E seeks a special e x e m p t i o n for the

Chkano activist to visit Hope two days next week Noted Chicano rights activist Domingo Nick Reyes and his wife Conchita will be at Hope next Thursday and Friday to talk about the work of the MexicanAmerican Anti-Defamation League. T h e League was f o u n d e d three years ago for the purpose of identifying the positive c o n t r i b u t i o n s of Chicanos to this country and its culture. T h e League has also gained p r o m i n e n c e for its fight against the p e r p e t u a t i o n and exploitation of false and insulting stereotypes of Chicanos such as the Frito Bandito. Reyes is executive director of the League and is nationally recognized as a c o m m u n i c a t i o n s consultant-analyist, a c o m m u n i t y relations and a intergroup relations specialist. He will hold a press conference at 10 a.m. Thursday and will appear on "Western Michigan Speaks" with J o h n Windover on WJBL radio at 2 : 1 5 . At 4 p.m., Reyes will attend a reception with the Holland H u m a n Relations C o m m i t t e e and will appear at a Latino b u f f e t for Chicanos in the Holland area at Durfee Hall.

Director of Student Activities John Jackson has been asked to resign as his contract will run out July 1, the anchor learned Tuesday. JACKSON cited various causes for his contract termination, but the most important* factor ( was a communication breakdown between him and his immediate superior, " D e a n of Students Robert DeYoung. " H e did not c o m m u n i c a t e to me what and how he wanted things done. Right from the beginning we've had a communication p r o b l e m , " Jackson stated. According to Jackson, DeYoung interpreted the job of Director of Student Activities as being more of an administrative position. " I t seemed that DeYoung did not want me involved in t h e nitty gritty operations of extra-curricular activities, but more as an advisor," Jackson said. However, Jackson interpreted a main part of his job as providing and coordinating extra-curricular activities for the campus. " A L L IN all DeYoung was not satisfied with the j o b I was doing, especially in the area of working with student organizations and organization advisers," Jackson indicated.

JOHN JACKSON Another key factor in Jackson's release was his alleged lack of interest in the job. "DeYoung indicated t o me that I did not appear to be really interested in the j o b , " Jackson said. Jackson denied the allegation stating, "I've enjoyed most aspects of the position. There are some things I d o n ' t like about it but that is true with any o c c u p a t i o n . " JACKSON admitted that his style of work is unorganized b u t he declared that his lack of organization does not necessarily negate his effectiveness as an administrator. He said, "When a person has time t o keep a tidy office it indicates t o me that he is not doing m u c h . " He also said he was not a '"meeting-oriented person."

Mandeville to be razed?

Fire marshall cites cottage Mandeville Cottage, mentioned in the Sept. 1 5 , 1 9 7 2 , issue of the anchor as being r u n d o w n and in need of extensive repair, has been given a "terminal c o n t r a c t " of sorts by City Housing Inspector Jack Langfeld. L A N G F E L D told the anchor he had looked at Mandeville on Monday accompanied by Director of Public Safety Glen Bareman and "1 wasn't pleased at what 1 found." "Virtually everything in the cottage needs a t t e n t i o n , including the plumbing, the heating, and the s t r u c t u r e , " he said. In the previous story a b o u t the cottage Hope Business Manager Barry Werkman mentioned that Mandeville's f o u n d a t i o n s were slowly sinking because of the condition of the soil beneath t h e m . ALSO, THE porch is beginning to separate f r o m the house and the attic is unsafe to walk in. Plaster is off the wall in many places. Langfeld said the college would be permitted t o house s t u d e n t s in the cottage during the present term but only extensive repairs would allow s t u d e n t s t o live there next fall. "WE'VE chosen not to make an issue out of it," he said. " T h e college has indicated that it plans to renovate t h e cottage this summ e r . " Langfeld a d d e d , though, that the city would take action against the college if students were housed in Mandeville in the fall without t h e necessary repairs being made. Associate Dean of S t u d e n t s Michael Gerrie told the anchor that while it was p r e m a t u r e to say anything a b o u t Mandeville's fate at this time, t h e college has tentatively decided to make as many repairs as necessary and use the cottage next fall.

A new urban s t u d y program in Chicago will be available t o Hope students beginning next semester, according t o Associate Dean for Academic Affairs J o h n Stewart. The Chicago Metropolitan Collegiate Center will be composed of students from Hope, Northwestern and Central College. STEWART SAID, " O u r goal is t o have a program for s t u d e n t s to c o n f r o n t the city and to allow the city to c o n f r o n t the s t u d e n t s . " The program will consist of a work-internship course, an urban seminar and a practicum in urban citizenship. T h e internship program will involve the s t u d e n t working in an area related t o his academic emphasis. Stewart mentioned such opportunities as social work, student teaching, government work, the arts and working with the urban church. He emphasized that

Action fought

people with almost any kind of interest can be placed in the program. ' T H E URBAN seminar is the cognitive base of he program," Stewart stated. This aspect of the Chicago semester will concentrate on how one understands the city in an historical, sociological and demographic view. " E a c h student will work on a specific research program as part of the urban seminar," he elaborated. The practicum in urban citizenship will a t t e m p t to understand how a person functions in the city. For example, Stewart mentioned that t o effect significant change a person must align himself with g r o u p s . ' T h e Chicago semester is a 16 credit program with the student earning eight credits for the internship, four credits for the seminar and four credits for the practicum in urban citizenship. STEWART cautioned that the program is not in competition with the Philadelphia program. He

said, " I t will be similar to it but with somewhat different direction. T h e Chicago program is simply another o p p o r t u n i t y . " He indicated that the new study o p p o r t u n i t y in Chicago will be advantageous because of its closer proximity to Hope. " O u r hope is t o involve our own facult y , " Stewart said. C E N T R A L COLLEGE iniated the program several years ago and will be administering the credits and grades. It is eligible for students of s o p h o m o r e , junior and senior standing. A 2.0 minimum grade point average is generally required of participating s t u d e n t s and cost will be close to onc a m p u s fees. T h e application deadline is May 1 and should be submitted through the associate dean for academic affairs office. Vern H o f f m a n , one of the Chicago program's directors will be on c a m p u s next Wednesday and Thursday. He will interview students and talk about the program.

Laketown area. He speculated that if CRE is successful in obtaining zoning changes, Great Northern may request the same priviledges for similar purposes. Dr. Elden Greij, professor of biology, responded by c o m m e n t ing on the aesthetic value of the dunes. Although Greij opposes the commercial land development he believes that development of the area is inevitable. But he hopes that the area c o m m u n i t i e s will organize regional c o m m i t t e e s to plan development and preserve valuable lands. Dr. Edward Helbing, resident of Laketown township, reported that although he submitted a petition bearing 4 0 0 signatures opposing the rezoning t o the township zoning board, there is really no organized opposition. However, Helbing said t h a t because the board is made up of elected officials they must be conscious of the people's wishes. Dave Froberg, president of the parent concern of Carousel Recreation Equities, Inc., said that developers have invested large sums of money and if zoning changes are rejected they would go ahead and develop the property one way or a n o t h e r . T h e attor-

ney representing CRE said that probably the only way t o prevent development of t h e area would be to make the dunes public lands. Business Manager Barry Werkman stated that Hope has sent letters t o the Laketown Zoning Board and the Board of Appeals opposing the rezoning of the land for commercial use. Hope does not favor the construction of liv-

ing units but is primarily opposed to commercial development. Werkman pointed out that the commercial area would be approximately o n e - f o u r t h of a mile away f r o m the college's biology field station. " T h e by-product of such a development, attracting large numbers of people, would have an adverse e f f e c t on the research s t a t i o n , " said Werkman.

Jackson blames decision on conflict of life styles continued from page I spend an entire a f t e r n o o n in a meeting that was hardly relevant to my o f f i c e . " JACKSON offered o t h e r reasons for his dismissal including the X-rated movies shown on campus, several controversial, politically-oriented films including The Murder of Fred Hampton and the SAC-sponsored visit of Black Panther Bobby Rush last year. He also mentioned opposition to t h e transcendental meditation series but decided that such events were not the major reasons for his contract termination. Jackson s u m m e d up his opin-

ion of his dismissal as a "conflict in lifestyle." He said, "DeYoung observed that I run my office somewhat loosely and attributes any of my administrative shortcomings to that lack of organization.* True, I may be unorganized, but I believe that I have done a good j o b . " He c o n t i n u e d , "Judging someone's administrative accomplishments by his office organization is as much a fallacy as judging a man's capabilities by his mode of dress. If you find yourself subordinate to a conflict in lifestyle, this naturally makes for work-relationship problems," Jackson concluded.

to undergo renovation T h e pigeons w h o grace Hope skies between Carnegie Gymnasium and the Science Building will be making friends with a new breed of student when the English, political science, economics and business administration, and history d e p a r t m e n t s move into the Science Building next January as scheduled. ACCORDING to Business Manager Barry Werkman, the administration and an architectural firm are developing schematic drawings for the building's renovation. T h e drawings will be presented to the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees Mar. 16 for approval. Werkman said, "Subject to Board approval and available fi-

nancing the building will be ready by January. We hope to finish planning by early August and construction should begin in early September." THE F I R S T two floors of the Science Building will be used as classrooms and the third floor will house faculty offices. When the English and political science dep a r t m e n t s relocate into the building Van Raalte will house only administrative offices. " N o definite decision has been made about the f u t u r e of Van Raalte," Werkman stated. He indicated that it has to be renovated or torn d o w n . " I f V o o r h e e s could be used for administration offices. Van Raalte could very likely be razed," he said.

Wonder... lost? by Bob Van Voorst When I behold the heavens, and the work of t h y fingers, The m o o n and stars which T h o u hast fashioned What is man, that t h o u shouldst be m i n d f u l of him? And the son of man, that T h o u shouldst care for him? Psalm 8:3-4. A sense of wonder is one of the most remarkable elements that the Western tradition holds in store for us. A true sense of w o n d e r about the world and ourselves dazzles the eyes, astounds the mind and transports the life of man f r o m the realm of prosaic b o r e d o m t o a new and appreciative dimension of life. WONDER AND a m a z e m e n t have been a driving force in the lives of philosophy and science. Plato remarked that, " W o n d e r is the feeling of a philosopher, and philosophy begins in w o n d e r . " His statement is echoed by Aristotle: " F o r it is owing t o their wonder that men b o t h now begin and at first began t o philosophize." Wonder is appreciated by the scientific c o m m u n i ty as one of the seeds of knowledge. Wonder leads to a healthy curiosity a b o u t the world, and no a m o u n t of knowledge can lessen the creative scientist's appreciation for and a m a z e m e n t at the world he studies. Every full-grown tree of knowledge produces seeds of wonder which lead t o new and more f r u i t f u l quests after knowledge. THE CHIEF enemy of wonder is the habit of taking things for granted. T h e person who fails to be filled with awe and wonder when he reflects on himself and the world is caught in the snare of indifference; life t o such a person cannot be anything but dull and wearisome. What is the r o o t of this indifference t o wonder? I believe t h a t Alfred N o r t h Whitehead gives a valid

reply t o this question in his book The Adventure of Ideas. Whitehead remarks that m o d e r n Western man has been infected with a " D o g m a t i c F a l l a c y " which holds that all reality can be ultimately explained in a scientific way and all clouds of mystery and wonder dispelled. T H I S F A L L A C Y is based on t h e false assumption that man wonders and is overcome by awe only when he c a n n o t understand his world, and that wonder rightly dissipates as knowledge increases. This is a very shallow c o n c e p t i o n of the power and place of wonder. Even t h o u g h understanding leads t o a heightened scientific appreciation, it does not follow that understanding can illuminate the ultimate mystery of being, or that scientific knowledge is the only valid type of knowledge. T R U E understanding, as t h e above q u o t a t i o n of Plato indicates, cannot q u e n c h the sense of wonder present in every awakened person. Even when the sun of illumination shines its brightest, the shadows of wonder will shade those able to appreciate the mystery of life and existence. " W o n d e r , " Carlyle once s t a t e d , "is the basis of worship." T o approach G o d is t o be struck with wonder at his holiness and m a j e s t y . The Psalmist's exclamation cited above tells of how true wonder over the glory of G o d ' s creation and the power of creation's G o d leads to worshipful humility: "What is man, that T h o u art m i n d f u l of him, and the son of man, t h a t T h o u shouldst care for h i m ? " It is this humility-producing sense of w o n d e r that is the true basis of the Christian's worship. This L e n t e n season is an o p p o r t u n e time t o p o n d e r t h e w o n d r o u s acts of G o d . T o o m u c h frantic activity can only put us o u t of c o n t a c t with our Creator; the words spoken t o J o b are good advice t o every m a n : " S t a n d still and consider the w o n d r o u s works of the L o r d .

Questions raised The dismissal of J o h n Jackson f r o m his post as Director of S t u d e n t Activities (effective July 1) is definitely in need of concrete explanation by Dean of S t u d e n t s Robert DeYoung. Although it is anchor policy t o print both sides of every story whenever humanly possible, in this instance DeYoung was

legitimately unavailable for comment. This being t h e case, we decided t o present Jackson's side of t h e story unaccompanied by any explanation f r o m DeYoung. De Young's opinions will appear in next week's issue. And since we cannot legitamately editoralize on this story until both sides are heard, this editorial will a t t e m p t to raise some questions which perhaps can be answered in the coming week. Jackson spoke of t h e "lack of communic a t i o n " b e t w e e n himself and DeYoungwhich he feels was one of t h e prime causes for his dismissal. He also spoke of a clash of life styles, something t h a t may have prevented either party f r o m effectively communicat-

ing with the o t h e r or seeing t h e other's viewpoint. Jackson also told t h e anchor DeYoung criticized his loose organizational m e t h o d s . He claims t o " h a v e gotten t h e j o b d o n e " just as well with his m e t h o d s as with those DeYoung might have wished him t o use. DeYoung could be right on this p o i n t - o r he might be guilty of having t h e narrow o u t l o o k and feeling t h a t his m e t h o d s are the only ones which can w o r k . If it is true, as Jackson says it is, that sponsoring a lecture on transcendental meditation, or bringing Bobby Rush here t o speak figured in his dismissal, t h e n Hope is n o t ready f o r a man with Jackson's progressive, enlightened ideas. F u r t h e r m o r e if Jackson's accusation is true, t h e students at Hope are I n danger of losing access t o d i f f e r e n t perspectives, which is a very important part of one's e d u c a t i o n . One final question, and perhaps the most important one, needs t o be asked. Why were no students consulted on this matter? Perhaps the administration has a legitimate point in saying that students c a n n o t effectively determine the scholarly quality of a man. But in a post concerned almost totally with students, t h e y should be t h e final arbiters of quality. It is our hope that these questions can be cleared up.

Greydanus also pointed o u t that if multi-family dwellings are allowed to be constructed m u c h of t h e dunes w o u l d have t o be removed in order t o make t h e units structurally safe. Dr. Eldon Greij, associate professor of biology echoed G r e y d a n u s ' fears and said t h a t "this would destroy the great aesthetic value of t h e d u n e s . " Another concern for t h e Hope c o m m u nity is the f a t e of t h e biology reserve located in the heart of this w o o d e d area. One hardly needs to hear a detailed scientific report in order t o realize t h e implications of having a biology reserve o n e - f o u r t h of a mile away f r o m a shopping center. Yet, unless Carousel is unsuccessful, the shopping center will be c o n s t r u c t e d . Besides t h e aesthic and ecological questions, the people of Holland ought to be aware of several practical problems. The Carousel multi-family a p a r t m e n t s would create a strain on the Holland sewer system, road system, power supply, and public school system. Whether such an increase in t h e population would seriously tax the road system is debatable, but the strain on t h e power, sewer, and public school systems is obvious. Carousel has a t t e m p t e d t o answer these questions, but their explanations have been vague and shallow. T h e citizens of Holland should d e m a n d in d e p t h answers to t h e serious questions raised by the n e w developemental plans. In concluding, the anchor believes t h a t to develop m u c h of t h e last w o o d e d d u n e area in Michigan would be a grave ecological and aesthic disaster. We strongly urge all people with an interest in preserving the natural beauty of the dunes t o make their voices heard.

Aesthetic murder In t h e 19th century and in the early part of the 20th c e n t u r y , man, unconcerned with his environment and natural resources, sought w i t h o u t control, to build and industrialize t h e countryside. Today many realize the serious mistakes we have made in pursuing such a course. Still, others seek t o destroy the few remaining pristine acres in order to f u r t h e r their own selfish ends. Carousel Recreational Equities Inc. has petitioned the Laketown Zoning Board t o obtain a special exception t o the present zoning status in order t o build a p a r t m e n t living units. Carousel has also sought a direct change in t h e present zoning law in order t o permit t h e construction of a commercial area. It must be stated here that if Carousel is successful in obtaining its objectives, it is safe t o assume t h a t other industries would build in the area. This is particually t r u e if one realizes that Great Northern Land and Development C o m p a n y of Muskegon has a buy option on over 4 0 0 acres of land stretching f r o m t h e Hope Biology Reserve t o the Laketown Recreational Area. Surely, if Carousel is successful in obtaining changes in t h e zoning of their 3 0 0 acres, Great Northern would be very eager to seek zoning changes and begin development of their land. Other industries would eventually follow suit and once again another part of the natural beauty of this country would be in serious danger. This would be particually disasterous for t h e above area, because it is part of Michigan's last w o o d e d d u n e tract. Dr. Sam Greydanus, a concerned citizen and a professor at Calvin College was a leader in expressing grave concern over the proposed rezoning. Greydanus, said that such a plan would "destroy m u c h of the wildlife in the now wooded t r a c t . "

Power Shortage by Art Buchwald Copyright Š 1972, Los Angeles Times Syndicate

One of the groups most seriously affected by this winter's power crisis has been the Congress of the United States. While the rest of the c o u n t r y has managed t o get b y , Capitol Hill seems to be losing the energy battle, and experts predict that if President Nixon pursues his present policies. Congress will be completely out of power by 1974. S T A N F O R D F. Crunch, a Washington power broker, told me, "Congress has been wasting its power for years. It has always t h o u g h t the C o n s t i t u t i o n would provide it with ample resources t o use power in any way it wanted to. Well, they've discovered t h a t there isn't that m u c h power around and, because the White House has been using so much of it, there's very little left to p u m p up to T h e Hill." " T H E N Y O U believe that the power shortage in Congress has been caused by White House d e m a n d s for more power in domestic and foreign affairs?" " T h a t is c o r r e c t , " Crunch said. " A t one time, power was equally divided between the White House and Capitol Hill. NO O N E was concerned because there was enough t o go around for everybody. But since the November election, the White House has doubled its power needs and has been draining Congress of the little energy it h a d . " "What does this mean to the country?" " I T ' S OBVIOUS that w i t h o u t sufficient power resources Congress will be unable to f u n c t i o n a n y w h e r e near its capacity. If t h e power crisis c o n t i n u e s for another f e w m o n t h s , you may have to close d o w n the Senate and House of Representatives three of f o u r days a week." "That seems drastic," I said. " C o u l d n ' t the White House plug in Congress t o some of its power until the crisis is over?" of

" T H E WHITE House has no i n t e n t i o n doing this. It maintains that the

health and welfare of t h e United States depends on t h e p o w e r of t h e President. It is essential t o t h e national interests of t h e c o u n t r y that t h e President be provided with all t h e p o w e r he can grab. If he shared any of t h e power with Congress his entire Administration would be weakened and t h e American people would s u f f e r . " " A R E T H E R E any new technological b r e a k t h r o u g h s in p o w e r that could alleviate t h e congressional shortage?" " N o n e in t h e forseeable f u t u r e . One of t h e reasons Congress is suffering so is that is has the most antiquated power plant in t h e United States. T h e power came f r o m ancient Senate and House c o m m i t t e e s which have refused t o modernize their m e t h o d s f o r 100 years. AS L O N G as there was a surplus of power. Congress did n o t h i n g t o improve t h e system. But now t h a t their power has been drained away, every legislator is screaming for new ways of getting back the power t h e y ' v e l o s t . " "Will the cost of p o w e r go up because of t h e shortage?" I asked Crunch. " T H E PRICE of power has been rising steadily for m a n y years. T h e President has already warned Congress that if it wants power next year, it will have t o pay dearly for i t . " "What would it cost Congress?" " I N R E T U R N for getting back some of its power. Congress will have t o go along with all the President's fiscal programs, as well as his foreign policies." " T h a t is expensive," I said. " I s n ' t there enough gas u p on Capitol Hill t o keep its plant going?" "Yes, gas has been o n e of the main sources of congressional power. But because there is n o c o n c e n t r a t i o n of p o w e r on T h e Hill, most of the gas is being wasted on h o m e c o n s u m p t i o n . If Congress could figure out some way of harnessing the gas that is m a n u f a c t u r e d at the Capitol every day, it would have enough power to light up the city of Chicago." OaO

for freedom, hunger f

Richards "Man has m a n y hungers. But to me they all seem t o be versions of a t w o f o l d o n e : hunger f o r f r e e d o m , and hunger f o r union, a dance of each individuality with the w o r l d . " IN HER quest to u n d e r s t a n d and satisfy t h e hungers of her o w n soul the a u t h o r of this b o o k has undergone a series of t r a n s f o r m a tions which have led her t o a r special understanding of what it means to be a whole h u m a n being. In Centering she tries t o give a little insight i n t o her o w n quest and her own d y n a m i c resolution. She uses t h e m e t a p h o r of a potter's piece of clay, which is little more than m u d until it can be centered on t h e wheel. Thus a h u m a n life attains little h a r m o n y and form until it is centered, until the life force of t h e person can be focused and celebrated. EVEN A F T E R t h e pot has been f o r m e d on the wheel, t h e final f o r m is not taken until t h e pot has e n d u r e d t h e kiln and ordeal by fire. So also must men and women e n d u r e t h e fire of suffering b e f o r e they can center in the moral sphere and fully relish the h u m a n spirit. One of t h e nicest things a b o u t the book is t h a t Richards does n o t leave t h e reader c o m p l e t e l y in t h e dark as t o t h e m e t h o d s of centering. T h e b o o k is almost a confession ( w i t h o u t t h e " s o p p y quality f o u n d in m a n y " p e r s o n a l " statements); every page breathes with the e x c i t e m e n t of living a vital life. F I R S T SHE says that it is i m p o r t a n t n o t t o focus our entire energies in t h e physical or t h e

as mere words or outlandish romanticism. Centering is a pilgrimage of the soul.

Can it be a n y t h i n g but a religious experience? But this is not t h e religion of dogma and harping, it is rather a direct example and a w o n d e r f u l l y inspiring one.

2. Are you in favor of changes in the college's position on drinking? No. I'd rather see Skiles change its position and ban all beverages. My stand, clearly, is a courageous and independent one. 3. Do y o u think Hope should have an all Christian faculty? Yes. It would be too hard to find an all Zen Buddhist faculty. 4. What do you see as the key issues facing Hope s t u d e n t s next year? Passing w i t h o u t studying, the paying of tuition w i t h o u t stealing and attending class w i t h o u t sleeping or overdosing on No-Doz will be the key problems in the near f u t u r e . 5 Does t h e S t u d e n t Congress now have an effective role in student affairs? How would you make the role more effective?

Yes, the S t u d e n t Congress has been instrumental in generating a great deal of apathy. I would make its role more effective by publishing the unabridged minutes of every meeting in the daily bulletin. 6. Evaluate Van Wylen's p e r f o r m a n c e as president so far. I didn't like McBride and Ervin a n y w a y . 7. Do you feel that the student appropriations c o m m i t t e e can effectively and fairly determine how m u c h money student organizations will receive? If I am elected I feel that spending and pocketing money is an executive function and should be t h e responsibility of the S t u d e n t Congress President. A campus music critic assured me that the Siegel-Schwall Blues Band will be entertaining. My own opinion is that Hope should reject the c o n t e m porary groups in favor of something more lasting like Myron Florn and the Hotsy Totsy Boys.

Hope College anchor

March 1 6 , 1 9 7 3

Student Congress executive hopefuls Editor's n o t e : T h e following statements were prepared by candidate for s t u d e n t body president Ron Posthuma in response t o an anchor questionnaire. Does S t u d e n t Congress have an effective role in s t u d e n t affairs? How would you make its role more effective? Student Congress does not have a very effective role in student affairs at present. This is largely due to the nature of the c o m m u n i t y government at Hope in which all the i m p o r t a n t decisions are theoretically made by t h e three policy boards-Administrative Affairs, and Academic Affairs. S t u d e n t Congress is left with only advisory f u n c t i o n s in our present system. The newly-formed Student Appropriations C o m m i t t e e will give the Student Congress some concrete f u n c t i o n s t o p e r f o r m , but the important action will still go on in the boards. Student Congress still could be very important as both an information gathering unit, e.g. surveys of student opinion, and as a disseminator of information t o s t u d e n t s in other parts of the c o m m u n i t y government and t o the student body at large. I n f o r m a t i o n and an effective means of c o m m u n i c a t i o n would give the student body more influence in the policy-making process. T o help Congress in this last role I would try t o improve the Congress meetings by making sure that everyone got an agenda before the meeting, by opening up the meetings to more non-Congress member input and by a t t e m p t i n g to keep the discussions relevant and brief. What d o you see as the key issues for Hope s t u d e n t s next year? As far as academic issues go, 1 think a continued review of core requirements and class offerings will be important next year. Also, we must see to it that student input is increased on the important questions of faculty hiring, granting of tenure, evaluation of p e r f o r m a n c e and dismissal. Currently, Kurt Avery is working for the adoption of a unified, all-campus faculty evaluation system to be administered by Student Congress. It is vital that s t u d e n t s have more t o say about their professors. I anticipate a strong fight to give students living on campus a greater say about housing rules. T h e increase in parietal hours passed by CLB this semester was a good step but it fell short of what Student Congress had asked for. The overall principle which we must get Hope to accept is that dormitory rules should be made by those living in the dorm, not by a dean or even by the CLB.

RON POSTHUMA' Many people say that the food at Saga is getting worse. This should be investigated next year just as the bookstore was investigated a year ago. Housing options should be increased. I'd like to see a dorm which is co-ed by floors and college housing for married students. Perhaps the most important issue next year will be the revision of the c o m m u n i t y government structure. The ad hoc Committee on Committees will give its recommendations to the Administrative Affairs Board some time this spring and it appears that they will suggest student representation on the boards be cut back. Also they will r e c o m m e n d that some important policy questions be handled by the administration Executive C o m m i t t e e . That would be very bad for Hope students. I served on the C o m m i t t e e on C o m m i t t e e s for nine m o n t h s and I k n o w that there are alternate plans for revision which are much more preferable. Why are you running for office? I've always had an interest in student government and politics in general. This is very important when your time gets tight and you have to start choosing between homework and being a good student representative. My booking always suffers a bit when I'm engrossed in some aspect of student politics. More importantly, I want the chance t o do something for my school and my fellow students. I've had a really great time here and learned a lot about people so I think it is only right that I give something back in return. Do you favor a change in the college's position on drinking?

I am in favor of a change in the school's drinking policy, although 1 d o feel that steps should be taken t o protect t h e rights of s t u d e n t s w h o d o n ' t want drinking in t h e dormitories. I feel a % vote in a living unit before allowing drinking there would be a good c o m p r o m i s e position. What I d o n ' t like is t h e present situation in which t h e school claims not t o allow drinking in the d o r m s but is so lax in enforcing their rule t h a t drinking goes on openly in m a n y d o r m s and cottages. Either the rule should be strictly enforced or the problem should be left to the people in each individual living unit. They are the ones w h o must live with the situation and should have more say in creating t h e rules under which they will live. Do you favor increased co-ed housing? Personally, I'd like t o see a dorpiitory go co-ed by floors but whether S t u d e n t Congress would push for this would depend on what students were thinking at the time. The Kollen hall idea seems to be working quite well. I'm glad t o say that I had a great deal t o do with getting t h a t plan through the many necessary levels of government last year. Housing for married students is also a good idea. Do you think Hope should have an all Christian faculty? No. I think the goal of having an all-Christian faculty will diminish the present emphasis on academic quality in hiring new professors. F u t h e r m o r e , it seems to me only logical that having a h o m o g e n e o u s philosophical basis a m o n g the faculty could be very stifling. I feel a college or university should be c o m m i t t e d t o the pursuit of t r u t h . Because 1 personally see t r u t h t h r o u g h a Christian perspective I would feel especially cheated if none of my professors could seriously challenge my assumptions with a d i f f e r e n t personal view of life. Hope presently has a religious c o m m i t ment which I think is strong e n o u g h to stand the test of challenging philosophies. If our Christian faith is so weak t h a t it can't stand up to such a challenge then it's not w o r t h y of the name Christian. Can the S t u d e n t A p p r o p r i a t i o n s Committee effectively and fairly d e t e r m i n e h o w much m o n e y student organizations will receive? Mark De R o o and I co-authored the Student Appropriations C o m m i t t e e proposal. Our primary consideration was to give s t u d e n t s control over the spending of the activities fee m o n e y . However, I think that the multi-step consideration of the

budgets in the A p p r o p r i a t i o n s C o m m i t t e e , S t u d e n t Congress a n d t h e CLB will also give a t h o u g h t f u l and fair hearing t o all student organizations, h u m a n fraility considered. D o y o u feel that s t u d e n t s should have a voice in granting t e n u r e t o professors. Yes. Only s t u d e n t s k n o w what a professor is like in t h e classroom and that performance should be the prime d e t e r m i n a n t of w h e t h e r t e n u r e is granted. However, t h e role of s t u d e n t s shouldn't be the d o m i n a n t one since s t u d e n t s usually see only o n e aspect of the professors, their classroom p e r f o r m a n c e . Are s t u d e n t c o m m i t t e e s effectively representing the s t u d e n t b o d y ? S t u d e n t s on the various c o m m u n i t y government c o m m i t t e e s d o an excellent j o b representing the a p a t h y of the s t u d e n t body. T h e lack of interest of m a n y students is regrettable but understandable since m o s t s t u d e n t s are here to learn and have a good time. People in s t u d e n t government must continually strive t o get s t u d e n t input and inform s t u d e n t s a b o u t what is going on but I d o n ' t think that the average s t u d e n t should be expected t o be u p on all facets of c o m m u n i t y g o v e r n m e n t . S t u d e n t representatives wUl only be effective when pressure is put on them by their fellow s t u d e n t s t o d o a good j o b . Perhaps if S t u d e n t Congress got involved with s o m e larger questions affecting the whole c o m m u n i t y such as land use, h u m a n rights, etc., more interest would be generated. Evaluate Dr. G o r d o n Van Wylen's perf o r m a n c e as president. I've talked with President Van Wylen a n u m b e r of times b o t h individually and as a member of the S t u d e n t Advisory Council. I think that overall he is doing a fairly good job so far. He told me t h a t his t w o m a j o r concerns are with f u n d raising and improving the academic quality of Hope. As far as raising m o n e y and acting as our PR man I think he has d o n e an excellent j o b . He is very good at talking with people in t h e R e f o r m e d Church and with o t h e r possible big donors. His dedication t o quality in e d u c a t i o n is something I think is especially i m p o r t a n t . I worry s o m e w h a t a b o u t his conservative religious b a c k g r o u n d and lifestyle but 1 f o u n d that President Van Wylen is a reasonable and tolerant man. I d o n ' t think he will try t o convert H o p e into a classical Midwest Bible school and he should be open t o changes on c a m p u s when they come.

Avery, Beren seek vice presidential appointment Editor's n o t e : The following statement was prepared by candidate for s t u d e n t body vice president Jim Beran in response t o an anchor questionnaire. T o begin, I think the effectiveness of Student Congress must be examined. With its existing representative structure Student Congress's effectiveness is stifled. Boards and committees diffuse student power. Student Congress now can only make r e c o m m e n d a t i o n s . Lack of student involvement adds t o Student Congress's stagnation. Student Congress needs some f u n damental changes for increasing its effectiveness. First, there should be a greater cross-section of students involved in Congress. Representatives elected at large, dorm, fraternity and sorority representatives should be elected p r o p o r t i o n ately. Congress should have a veto power to speed up board and c o m m i t t e e proposals. Congress officers should meet on a regular basis with the President, administrators and bi-monthly with students. Next year three main categories of issues m u s t receive a t t e n t i o n . In student life: examination of the living situation including dorms, maintenance, rules and regulations, the clinic and health insurance, SAGA and t h e b o o k store. In student representation: expansion and reorganization of t h e Congress, boards and committees. One policy of primary concern regards drinking: this issue should be examined in c o n t e x t with current dorm policies. I believe that t h e living unit or wing should decide on its own living conditions. This includes partials and involves decentralization of judicial process. Drinking should also be allowed for o f f - c a m p u s groups. Hope shouls push Holland t o grant liquor licenses t o other establishments besides Skiles, t h e P u b and a f e w others. Consideration should be given t o expansion of co-ed housing. I am in favor of it with t h e exception that all-men or

all-women housing should remain for those w h o desire it. With the development of Dr. Van Wylen's proposed goals and purposes, students and faculty have raised questions on the possibility of having an allChristian faculty. A Christian commitment should remain a very i m p o r t a n t criterion for hiring. T h e quality of the teacher should be considered first. Christian c o m m i t m e n t is i m p o r t a n t t o assure the flexibility of H o p e ' s Christian c o m m u n i t y . It also increases stability and the potential for growth and diversity of t h e educational experience of Hope. (This doesn't imply t h a t teachers should sermonize in classrooms). NonChristian faculty should receive the same support that Christian faculty do. Areas that could facilitate meaningful student input include the appropriations c o m m i t t e e , hiring and granting of tenure, and representation on b o a r d s and committees. Next year I believe that t h e student appropriations c o m m i t t e e can effectively establish jurisdiction over s t u d e n t activities funding. This can also help increase the authority of Student Congress. I believe that s t u d e n t s should have an active voice in hiring and firing in many w a y s - t w o in particular might be individual classroom evaluations, d e p a r t m e n t a l majors and a faculty c o m m i t t e e t o decide not only tenure b u t hiring. Ideally, boards and c o m m i t t e e s are fine for student input but several problems cause ineffectiveness in representing t h e students. Congress is not structured t o significantly reinforce s t u d e n t input o n boards and c o m m i t t e e s . It is very difficult t o m a k e a proper evaluation of the President during a period establishment and organization. However, I felt his handling of the McB r i d e - E r v i n affair was poor. T h e frequency of c o m m u n i c a t i o n should be increased and the m e t h o d s should be improved. On the o t h e r side, he has d o n e a commendable j o b with building Hope and the expansion of d e p a r t m e n t a l programs.

Editor's n o t e : The following s t a t e m e n t was prepared by candidate for s t u d e n t b o d y vice president Kurt Avery in response t o an anchor questionnaire. Student Congress has always had the potential of being a very powerful tool but as students we have never really made full use of this potential. T h e relationship of Congress t o the c o m m i t t e e and board structure on campus gives the student b o d y the means for i m p o r t a n t c o n t r i b u t i o n s to the policies of t h e college, but in the past, lack of s t u d e n t involvement has hindered o u r input. I have been asked t o give my views on some of the big issues that are on campus t o d a y , but I must first say that when " c a m p u s feelings" can be clearly read I try not t o let my opinions, should t h e y be c o n t r a d i c t o r y , take priority over t h e student feelings. U n f o r t u n a t e l y a c a m p u s opinion cannot always be obtained so I will at those times use the i n f o r m a t i o n t h a t is available. { am at all times open t o student i n p u t , as it helps make my decisions that m u c h easier. F r o m t h e i n f o r m a t i o n that has been gathered and f r o m general discussions, it appears t h a t turning Kollen into a co-ed dorm has been a great success b o t h f r o m the administration's s t a n d p o i n t and for improved social interaction at H o p e . T h e precedent has been set and I t h i n k a c o n t i n u a t i o n of t h e policy is desirable. I do not feel that it would be wise t o destroy t h e F r a t c o m p l e x in favor of co-ed d o r m s or for any o t h e r reason. A n o t h e r big issue on c a m p u s is drinking. If t h e state recognizes us as adults responsible enough t o drink, t h e n the college should respect t h e m . It should be up t o t h e living units t o decide for themselves but with a d e q u a t e measures t o protect sizable minorities. T h e real question of drinking lies in its abuse, but there are enough regulations t o account for these abuses w i t h o u t depriving the majorities; it only requires a change in the i m p l e m e n t a t i o n of existing rules. Lately there has been m u c h discussion

about the role of t h e s t u d e n t s when it comes to the hiring and evaluations of professors. This is an area where t h e student ' i n p u t has been very l i m i t e d ; other than s t u d e n t s serving in advisory capacities to d e p a r t m e n t s there is not m u c h i n p u t . I w o u l d like t o see a rebirth of t h e s t u d e n t evaluations of p r o f s . In the granting of t e n u r e s t h e evaluations could prove useful, b u t direct s t u d e n t input is also necessary. T h e r e is a n e e d - f o r a s t u d e n t t o serve in an advisory capacity when t e n u r e s are discussed. This brings u p t h e t o p i c of President G o r d o n Van Wylen's p e r f o r m a n c e and t h e r u m o r s of an all Christian f a c u l t y . It is t o o early t o m a k e a n y accurate evalu a t i o n of Van Wylen. He is still adjusting t o t h e qpllege and t h e college t o him, we should give h i m our s u p p o r t and, perhaps in t u r n we'll find him m o r e open t o us. As far as an all Christian faculty is concerned I d o n ' t think it is a real issue. It is absurd t o t h i n k t h a t H o p e will ever have a 100% confessed Christian f a c u l t y with o a t h r e q u i r e m e n t s , b u t where the issue becomes i m p o r t a n t is what importance we should place on being a Christian w h e n it comes t o t h e hiring of personnel. T h e r e are m a n y advantages and disadvantages on b o t h sides of t h e issue and m u c h discussion is necessary. H o p e has high academic s t a n d a r d s and t h e y could be lost in t h e preference for Christianity, b u t H o p e also has high Qiristian standards and t h e y are a very integral part of what makes H o p e special t o t h e students. S t u d e n t Congress has made some progress this year and t h e best e x a m p l e is t h e S t u d e n t A p p r o p r i a t i o n s C o m m i t tee. T h r o u g h this c o m m i t t e e the s t u d e n t s have an i m p o r t a n t say o n the spending of a large q u a n t i t y of m o n e y . T h e potential of S t u d e n t Congress is great but it will always rely on the s t u d e n t ' s input, so t h e biggest task b e f o r e congress and its officers will be t o stimulate and properly channel s t u d e n t enthusiasm.


speak out on major issues for '73-'74 Editor's note: The following statements were prepared by candidate for student body president Dan Dethmers in response to an anchor questionnaire. Does Student Congress have an effective role in student affairs? How would you make its role m o r e effective? Student Congress serves almost no purpose, although this is less true than it was last year. This isn't surprising since Congress was designed to have very little purpose. It was given no authority except that of advising the boards and running elections. Is it surprising that with very little to work with it hasn't accomplished much? This has been remedied to some extent this year by the setting up of the Student Appropriations C o m m i t t e e . Here at Hope it seems to be especially true that control of funds is an important way to be heard. It's fairly easy to see when one looks at the proceedings of the boards that the powerlessness of Congress is merely a reflection of the opinions held about students themselves and the administration and to a lesser degree by the faculty. On the Student Conduct C o m m i t t e e you hear discussions on whether " T h e student is able to make up his own mind about drinking and parietal." When an administrative decision about hiring or firing is made the students are condescendingly told that it is none of their business to know why or how these decisions were made. an Academic Affairs Board meeting, i faculty member said that if we're not careful all the students will flunk the language achievement tests, a f t e r all who would want to fail proficiency in a language? Are students really that spineless? Even worse is that this view is more prevalent among the students than among administration or faculty. Those involved in S t u d e n t Congress, people who hope to enter the professions or business in. a year or two, generally concede that students are incapable of making decisions or assuming responsibilities of their own. The feeling is that one should stay in one's place and not speak up to the administration. What can be done about this? The

Gerrie announces housing contracts Housing application contracts for the 1973-74 academic year have been a n n o u n c e d by Michael Gerrie, associate dean of students. According to Gerrie, contracts are being issued to all students currently enrolled as freshmen, sophomores, or juniors. Current seniors who intend to return next fall should report to the Dean of S t u d e n t s Office to pick up housing i n f o r m a t i o n . Gerrie said that " f o r the purpose of filling the resident halls, the college policy requires all students to live on campus unless they are commuters ( c o m m u t e r s being defined as either married or living with parents)."

most important goal is to grant more responsibility to the individual living units. The individual living units should be given greater freedom, i.e., to the extent of the civil law, to decide their own rules and regulations in the d o r m . In most cases this would be merely facing existing needs and placing responsibility where it belongs. This would also extend into the academic area where a greater flexibility is needed in the requirements and the way they can be met. T h e scope of Student Congress should be widened. It should include not only board members and cabinet, but representatives of all student campus organizations as such. This could include the fraternity and sorority presidents. The R.A.'s should also be included in an information gathering and disseminating capacity. This would serve to focus all student efforts in a c o m m o n direction. The major goal for Student Congress, though, is the attainment of a review power over the boards' decisions. Only when Student Congress has some voice in these decisions comparable to the faculty (their decisions subject ultimately to President Van Wylen) is approval in at least areas concerning student life, will it be able to accomplish anything or even be listened to by the boards. What do you see as key issues for Hope students next year? The key concern facing Hope students next year will be to achieve the freedom and responsibility which is their due. Most students are interested in a good place to live, good food to eat and the freedom to have their friends in when they want to. They also need the academic freedom to be creative in any way they desire to be. If we can accomplish anything in these areas the year will be a success. Only a stronger Student Congress will be able to accomplish these things. Why are you running for office? I had a vision telling me to run for president. Do you favor increased co-ed housing? It would seem to be a way of creating living units that would be better able to maintain their own standards of con-

DAN DETHMERS duct and become a coherent group if both men and women aren't artifically condoned on opposite sides of the campus. It would reduce the " u s vs. t h e m " mystique if d o r m s such as Zwemer, Durfee and VanVIeck were converted into co-ed living units. There should be dorms for people who don't prefer this style of living though. Do you think Hope should have an all Christian faculty? If the purpose of a Christian faculty is t o foster Christian growth in students, then having an all-Christian faculty is self-defeating. If we cannot provide as diversified a spectrum of opinion and beliefs among the faculty as is found anyplace in the United States then we are cheating the entire student body out of the kind of growth which is necessary to be a Christian in today's world. We are just left with a Christianity that seems to be too weak to exist among competition. Do you feel that students should have a voice in granting tenure to professors? I think it would be valuable t o have the students take part in the hiring and firing of teachers. I think that the students are best able to judge a professor's effectiveness as a teacher, while his collegues on the other hand are best

able to judge his professional qualities. It should be a joint e f f o r t (as it is in some departments already). I think it would be a valuable service to the students if Student Congress would publish a pamphlet rating courses and teachers. This would also contain advice from seniors on the best course sequence for different majors. This has already proved valuable at the University of Michigan. Are student committees effectively representing the student body? The students now serving on the boards are doing a good job in representing the students. The main problems at present are lack of valuable input and support from Student Congress of the students in general. Another problem is long hours required of those who try to serve on the Student .Congress committees and at the same time do an effective job on the boards. I think it is necessary to set up committees under Student Congress, elected possibly by the incoming freshman class, that would carry out f u n c t i o n s such as the investigation of the clinic and of Saga which are currently being carried out by the Congress. Evaluate Dr. G o r d o n Van Wylen's performance as president. President Van Wylen is still in a period of restructuring and organization so it is difficult to judge how effective his performance has been so far. When 1 have seen him he's impressed me as a man who seriously wants to put his Christian principles into action. I wonder if he is as respectful of others convictions. I do think though, that he has wasted a large a m o u n t of his convictions philosophising on the "Goals and Purposes statements." I think it would be more worthwhile if he would take concrete stand on where he wants the college to go and what he wants it t o be. After two years without a president the leadership is desperately needed. I also think he largely fails to implement student opinion in his decisionm a k i n g - e v i d e n c e the Ervin-McBride firings. If he had had enough respect f o r the students to make a statement he would have saved himself a lot of grief.

Coeds lauded by Merlin Whiteman The Hope w o m e n ' s basketball team c o n c l u d e d one of their most successful seasons in recent years Tuesday night by u p s e t t i n g Grand Rapids J u n i o r College 50-45. T h e b-ballers finished 10-6 on the season. Coach C y n t h i a Bean discussing the past season had n o t h i n g but praise f o r the players on the t e a m . "As a new coach, it was hard for m e t o k n o w what to e x p e c t at t h e beginning of the season. T h e first game we played a tough Western Michigan team and lost badly, but with a lot of hard work we put it all together the last p a r t of t h e s e a s o n . " "We were helped along by having a well-rounded shooting t e a m , " she c o n t i n u e d , "while several teams we played had o n l y one or t w o good shooters. Also, we had several g o o d ball handlers which made u p for o u r lack of height. We received m a n y compliments f o r playing well despite our small s q u a d . " In the game against Calvin the H o p e w o m e n showed how well t h e y could play. H o p e was beaten by seven points, but this was one of the closest games the Knighties had all year. T h e Knighties' are the state c h a m p s , and o n e of the t e a m ' s players indicated they could only find a d e q u a t e c o m p e t i tion by playing o u t s i d e the MIAA. The primary reason H o p e e n j o y e d such a fine season was the presence of a five senior nucleus. These w o m e n included co-captains Karla Hoesch and Mary D y k e m a , Carol Braaksma, Sue Haney and Mary Zaleta. The trio of Hoesch, D y k e m a and Zaleta did t h e most damage to o p p o n e n t s this year as each soared over t h e 100 point barrier. D y k e m a led all scorers with an unofficial 156 points. Also, D y k e m a was the only player t o score 2 0 points in one game with 22. Only one o t h e r player besides the five seniors scored d o u b l e figures in a game. Bean was very enthusiastic a b o u t the seniors w h o played their final game last Tuesday. " M a r y Dykema playing t h e high p o s t , " she said, " i n i t i a t e d m a n y offensive plays and was a consistent s h o o t e r for the H o p e w o m e n . Her r e b o u n d i n g strength c a m e through in m a n y crucial s p o t s . " Bean c o n t i n u e d , " C a r o l Braaksma was a consistent f r e e t h r o w s h o o t e r with a good overhead outside s h o t ; she was a real asset in r e b o u n d i n g . " " S u e H a n e y , w a s , " she stated, "especially effective playing against m a n - t o - m a n or pressing defenses. A good ball handler t h a t loves to drive t h e basket putting in key b a s k e t s as well as drawing key f o u l s . " "Karla Hoesch as q u a r t e r b a c k showed ball handling skill and game awareness which were t h e key t o o u r p a t t e r n e d o f f e n c e , " Bean said. " H e r quick hands created m a n y i m p o r t a n t t u r n o v e r s and fastbreak scoring was her favorite p l a y . "

Small in size but possessing a t r e m e n d o u s c o m petitive spirit Mary Zaleta had speed and an eye for the basket which were key factors in o u r season's p e r f o r m a n c e . Bean n o t e d . Hope began the season by blasting K a l a m a z o o 60-19. Next came their first of t w o losses to G r a n d Valley. T h e girls got back on the track by p u t t i n g away Muskegon C o m m u n i t y College 39-28. H o p e secured their s e c o n d M I A A win by t u r n i n g back Albion 4 9 - 3 0 . Against Olivet, t h e w o m e n played b o t h a j u n i o r varsity and a varsity game. In the preliminary contest, t h e y beat Olivet 32-10. The varsity game was m u c h closer, however. The c o m e t s were defeated by a one point margin, 48-47. MIAA foe Alma received the same t r e a t m e n t as t h e y lost to the D u t c h w o m e n 54-47. In the second Grand Valley game Hope c a m e up short o n c e again, this t i m e by the score of 53-46. This set the stage for the MIAA t o u r n a m e n t which Hope won. In the t w o games they played, Olivet was d e f e a t e d 55-34 and Adrian was edged out 54-52. The Hope-Calvin game was close all the way t o the end, a l t h o u g h Calvin won by seven. At half the Knighties led 24-20, and went on to win the game 44-37. This set t h e stage for Hope's biggest upset of the year. In the state t o u r n a m e n t held this past w e e k e n d , Hope upset t h e University of Michigan 50-45. However, in their o t h e r games, the strain of the U of M game s h o w e d .

T u e s d a y , t h e season e n d e d with a n o t h e r upset, this one a 53-50 win over the G r a n d Rapids J u n i o r College girls. The only player t o score in d o u b l e figures during the season that was not a senior was Jean Lambert. Bean called her their best freshman coming up n e x t year and termed her a strong rebounder. Badminton The second a n n u a l M I A A b a d m i n t o n field day was held last S a t u r d a y .

However, it was his o p p o n e n t ' s n o t i c e a b l e lack of m o v e m e n t and f o o t w o r k in the ring that gave " B o o m B o o m " the opening he needed t o score an easy decision. He later t o o k a tough Brown in t h e division finals to win the heavyweight c r o w n , with Richardson taking third. The middleweight class had promise of being the most challenging of t h e t h r e e weight brackets, but a f t e r Kinchloe's withdrawal the field was narrowed t o f o u r fighters. Bob Schuler survived a rugged t h r e e - r o u n d s t o best Tom Doerr in a highly contested decision, and shortly a f t e r ward t h e .lithe Baker got his chance. Using his superior height and reach t o full advantage, c o u p l e d with s o m e impressive boxing savvy, t h e s t a t u e s q u e Pennsylvanian whirled past b o t h T o m O'Brien ( w h o finished third overall) in his o p e n i n g m a t c h and Schuler in t h e finals.

The well-built Sanders, a f o o t ball fullback f o r H o p e last season, expressed satisfaction at t h e n u m ber of e n t r a n t s in t h e event and the desire t o c o n d u c t the event again next year. He wishes t o express his t h a n k s to all those w h o p a r t i c i p a t e d and t h o s e w h o assisted during t h e t o u r n a m e n t , particularly the judges and timekeepers.
