Referendum Wednesday

Senate Approves Constitution By Ken Nienhuis The Student Senate u n a n i m o u s ly a p p r o v e d a revised Senate constitution at its meeting M o n d a y night. Student a p p r o v a l will be s o u g h t in a referendum next Wednesday. SEVERAL SIGNIFICANT c h a n g e s will be b r o u g h t into effect if the new d o c u m e n t it a p p r o v ed by the students. One c h a n g e is in election procedures. U n d e r the revised constitution S e n a t o r - a t - l a r g e elections would be held in the S p r i n g , instead of the fall. This would be d o n e to try to eliminate the slowstart that the Senate experienced each fall in the past. This m e a s u r e would however m a k e it i m p o s s i b l e for any f r e s h m a n to serve a s a Senator-at-Large. Cottage representatives would n o longer h a v e a one half vote. Instead, cottage residents as a g r o u p would elect v o t i n g representatives in fall elections, one for the first 3 0 cottager s a n d o n e f o r each 5 0 a d d i t i o n a l cottagers. Off-campus students, now represented by only those m e m b e r s of the Senate elected at l a r g e t u v o u l d elect representatives in like m a n ner. BECAUSE THE SENATE T r e a s u r e r h a s greatly increased responsibilities as head of the newly-created A p p r o p r i a t i o n s Committee, he would be selected in a c a m p u s wide election. Both of the Senate's secretaries, however, would be chosen f r o m within the Senate.

The constitution a l s o sets d o w n the p r o c e s s for a p p e a l i n g Student Court decisions. A s t u d e n t ' s appeal, u p o n a p p r o v a l of the Dean of Students, would be received for c o n s i d e r a t i o n by the N e x u s Committee, consisting of the three college d e a n s a n d the Chief Justice of the Student C o u r t . T h e r e a r e a n u m b e r of other m i n o r revisions d e a l i n g with the Judicial B r a n c h u n d e r the new constitution. A l t h o u g h all these c h a n g e s a r e not significant, the constitution is not i n t r o d u c i n g any radical c h a n g e s . It is a revision, which S e n a t o r Steve L a r k i n described as essentially a " h o u s e - c l e a n i n g job." CRAIG HOLLEMAN, who chaired the Constitutional Revision Committee, said that in the old constitution there were s i m p l y too m a n y things to a m e n d . The judicial section of the constitution was especially in need of m i n o r revisions, H o l l e m a n pointed out. The court a n d old constitution h a d c o m e into existence practically concurrently a n d , as t h e c o u r t developed, m a n y features p r o v i d e d for in the judicial section h a v e p r o v e d i m p r a c tical. In other business, the controversial Bill of Rights submitted last week by J o h n Cox w a s not discussed. Student Senate President Gene P e a r s o n , however, s p e a k i n g for the Senate Executive Committee, stated that the committee considered the p r o p o s a l " n o t in fact a bill of r i g h t s , " but

Readers Speak Out

Dear Editor . . . We deeply a p p r e c i a t e the m a n y expressions of s y m p a t h y a n d C h r i s t i a n love extended by the students, a l u m n i , trustees and staff of H o p e College. Y o u r s h a r i n g o u r s o r r o w s u s t a i n e d o u r spirits a n d w a r m ed o u r hearts. Y o u r concern w a s a n avenue t h r o u g h which God c o m m u n i c a t e d His grace to us. Sincerely, The William V a n d e r Lugt family 1 would like to refer to a n incident that concerns the student c h a r t e r airline flight f r o m G r a n d Rapids to N e w a r k , New .Jersey for s p r i n g recess. This flight h a s come into g r e a t c o n t r o v e r s y between the a d m i n i s t r a t i o n a n d the 8 5 students involved. ACCORDING TO the Hope College Bulletin for 1966, published a b o u t a y e a r ago, s p r i n g recess shall begin March 24, 1967 at 12 n o o n . This w a s the c a l e n d a r a d o p t e d by the a d m i n i s t r a t i o n . However, two weeks a g o r u m o r s s p r e a d that classes were g o i n g to be cancelled on Good Frid a y ; yet it w a s s o m e time before a n y official w o r d w a s to be obtained. F o r m a n y weeks now, n e g o t i a t i o n s between United Airlines a n d a g r o u p of 8 5 students h a v e a r r a n g e d for a c h a r t e r flight to the East, the o r i g i n a l time for dep a r t u r e f r o m G r a n d Rapids b e i n g set for 2:30 p.m. G o o d F r i d a y . When the o r d e r came t h r o u g h that classes were called off. Bob J o s e p h a r r a n g e d with the airline that the flight time be c h a n g e d to 10 a.m. Friday. COMPLICATIONS a r o s e f r o m the administration. T h e y did not w a n t us to stay and h a v e the d o r m s open a n a d d i t i o n a l night. The next m a n e u v e r w a s to schedule the p l a n e f o r T h u r s d a y . The only time United Airlines could a r r a n g e the flight was for 12 n o o n ! T h i s necessitated the need for the students to leave the c a m p u s by chartered b u s at 10:30 a.m. to get to the airport.

A decision needed to be m a d e as United h a d to k n o w a n d confirm t h e r e - s c h e d u l i n g immediately. N o t acting without a u t h o r i t y , J o s e p h p r o c e e d e d to 105A V a n Raalte Hall to o b t a i n permission for the 8 5 students to cut T h u r s d a y ' s classes. However, Dr. VanderWerf was not in. Since we d o n ' t h a v e a vice president, J o s e p h m a n a g e d to get in touch with Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. William Mathis. L T pon h e a r i n g the situation. Dr. Mathis s y m p a t h i z e d with the students a n d g a v e p e r m i s s i o n for these students to l e a v e early. One would n a t u r ally think that if a n y o n e in the a d m i n i s t r a t i o n were to be upset o v e r students cutting classes it would be Dr. Mathis. But this is not the case. A( ( O R D I N G TO Eric Blahut a n d Bob J o s e p h , joint-student c o - o r d i n a t o r s for the flight, they were b r o u g h t u p o n the carpet by Dr. VanderWerf a n d Mr. H a n d l o g ten for a r r a n g i n g this T h u r s d a y time schedule. Also cited in this " d i s c u s s i o n " was that Dean Mathis d i d n ' t h a v e the p r o p e r a u t h o r ity in this m a t t e r ! This is certainly a c o m f o r t i n g t h o u g h t k n o w i n g a m a n in his position h a s n o a u t h o r i t y to m a k e decisions. An official notice that h a d g o n e out f r o m Dr. M a t h i s ' desk i n f o r m i n g the faculty of the students' situation b e c a m e instantly i n v a l i d . A p p a r e n t l y where the big r u b comes, is that the 8 5 students w o u l d h a v e special a d v a n t a g e o v e r the other students o n camp u s b y l e a v i n g at this earlier time. N o w the a d m i n i s t r a t i o n h a s reversed its feelings a b o u t the d o r m s a n d is m o r e t h a n willing to leave them open. ALSO T H E COLLEGE does not want to s a n c t i o n this flight l e a v i n g b e f o r e classes a r e officially dismissed. I a m not suggesting that if we h a d been allowed to leave T h u r s d a y t h a t this would start a precedent. However, the a d m i n i s t r a t i o n s h o u l d h a v e t a k e n into a c c o u n t the e x t e n u a t i n g circumstances b e h i n d Dr. Mathis' decision.

War in Washington The big q u e s t i o n e v e r y o n e in the nation's Capital is a s k i n g this week is, " C a n there ever be peace in W a s h i n g t o n ? " As every d a y p a s s e s the p o s i t i o n s of President J o h n s o n a n d Sen. K e n n e d y h a r d e n , a n d the c h a n c e s of a peaceful solution to the w a r in the Democratic P a r t y g r o w dimmer and d i m m e r . F r o m his government-in-exile headq u a r t e r s at H i c k o r y Hill, Va., ^ e n . Kenn e d y told a J a p a n e s e n e w s p a p e r m a n he's willing to sit d o w n with the President a n y where, at a n y time, p r o v i d i n g the President stops b o m b i n g the press with news releases just when K e n n e d y is m a k i n g a speech on the floor of the Senate. A WHITE HOUSESPOKESMANsaid that it still h o p e s to g o to the conference table with the K e n n e d y s , but first they m u s t m a k e s o m e gesture to s h o w they really want peace. When a s k e d w h a t kind of g e s t u r e w a s expected of the K e n n e d y s , the s p o k e s m a n replied, " T h e y h a v e to stop infiltrating A r t h u r Schlesinger, R ichar d G o o d w i n a n d J o h n Kenneth G a l b r a i t h into the New York Times, the S a t u r d a y E v e n i n g Post and the Today show." When a s k e d if they would consider a p a u s e in the b o m b i n g of the K e n n e d y s to w h a t the reaction would be, the White H o u s e s p o k e s m a n replied, " W e h a v e tried a p a u s e in the b o m b i n g but it didn't d o a n y g o o d . B o b b y K e n n e d y went off to E u r o p e a n d escalated his a t t a c k s by meeting with President De Gaulle. We c a n ' t s t a n d by a n d let the Great Society be shot in the b a c k . " A K e n n e d y s p o k e s m a n s a i d he d o u b t e d the sincerity of the J o h n s o n a d m i n i s t r a t i o n in seeking to achieve a just a n d l a s t i n g peace in the Democratic P a r t y . He said that one the one o c c a s i o n when the President put out peace feelers to B o b b y at the White House, the President spent two h o u r s chewing out the s e n a t o r f r o m N e w York. " T h e n the White H o u s e leaked the conf r o n t a t i o n to the press, c a u s i n g B o b b y to lose face in front of his b r o t h e r , Teddy.

The J o h n s o n a d m i n i s t r a t i o n talks peace, but it c o n t i n u e s to escalate the w a r . " W H E N I N F O R M E D OF W H A T the K e n n e d y s p o k e s m a n h a d s a i d , the White H o u s e replied, " T h e J o h n s o n a d m i n i s t r a tion d i d n ' t seek out a w a r with the Kennedys, but it c a n ' t flinch f r o m its responsibilities to the p a r t y . If it loses to the K e n n e d y s , New York could fall, then Cali f o r n i a , a n d , o n the b a s i s of the d o m i n o t h e o r y , every state could follow a n d the whole c o u n t r y could be t a k e n o v e r by the Republicans. We owe it to the people never to let this c o u n t r y fall u n d e r R e p u b l i c a n domination." T h e White H o u s e s p o k e s m a n continued that criticism of P r e s i d e n t ' J o h n s o n by those s u p p o r t i n g Sen. K e n n e d y ' s speeches w a s just p r o l o n g i n g the w a r in the D e m o c r a t i c Party. " S e n . K e n n e d y interprets a n y o p p o s i t i o n of President J o h n son a s a sign that the c o u n t r y is divided a n d weak. If the critics did not publicly side with K e n n e d y , hostilities would cease overnight." At H i c k o r y Hill, Va., e v e r y o n e scoffed at the White H o u s e statement. One of the K e n n e d y children s a i d , " T h e y call that a p e a c e feeler? We've h a d better peace feelers f r o m L o o k m a g a z i n e . " In the m e a n t i m e , n e u t r a l s o u r c e s were w o r k i n g b e h i n d the scenes to find s o m e w a y out of the i m p a s s e . One p r o p o s a l for a truce was t h a t President J o h n s o n not g o on television the s a m e d a y Sen. K e n n e d y g a v e a n i m p o r t a n t f o r e i g n policy speech.

Peters Led Life of Deception, Had Academic Degree ( C o n t i n u e d F r o m P a g e 1) States, a n d in 1949 w a s exposed in Pittsburgh a s a p r e a c h e r . Most of his time f r o m 1949 to 1952 was spent lecturing at v a r i o u s colleges a n d universities in the U.S. o r p r e s e n t i n g himself as a p r e a c h e r . In the s p r i n g of 1952 he negotiated a position in the history d e p a r t m e n t of the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio. In May 1 9 5 3 he w a s arrested for illegal entry into the U.S. He was in the States as a tourist a n d h a d not o b t a i n e d p r o p e r w o r k i n g p a p e r s . His lack of academic t r a i n i n g w a s e x p o s e d during the process of investigation, a l t h o u g h Wooster a d m i n i s t r a t o r s t h o u g h t he w a s " a seemingly bright fellow.^ IN L A T E J U N E or early July of 1953, he w a s d e p o r t e d and a r r i v e d in P l y m o u t h where he was s u m m a r i l y c h a r g e d with his b u g - a - b o o , b i g a m y . However, his bigamous m a r r i a g e s involved technicalities in the laws of Scotland a n d the laws of E n g l a n d , a c o m p a r a b l e case being the conflicts in the laws of New York a n d Nevada. B i g a m y is considered a very serious c h a r g e in E n g l a n d , but due to the e x t e n u a t i n g circ u m s t a n c e s i n v o l v i n g the l a w s of

Scotland a n d E n g l a n d , Peters was sentenced to only f o u r m o n t h s in p r i s o n . R o n a l d J u p c h a u , British C o n s u l in Detroit, described the sentence as " v i r t u a l l y n o m i n a l . " Free a g a i n a n d wifeless, Peters got out of jail a n d p r o m p t l y m a r ried Janet Elizabeth Lacelles, his third wife, in A u g u s t 1954. They were divorced a n d o n Aug. 4, 1955, Peters was arrested for falsely describing himself as a b a c h e l o r on a n a p p l i c a t i o n for a m a r r i a g e license. HE WAS A C Q U I T T E D of that c h a r g e , but on the next d a y , Aug. 5, 1955, he was arrested for f r a u d u l e n t c o n v e r s i o n and passing b a d checks. The c h a r g e s were b r o u g h t by his f o r m e r wife, Janet Lacelles, now in Australia, liefore he was tried a n d convicted, he p r o p o s e d to three other women, one of w h o m accepted. Alas, Peters was carted a w a y to p r i s o n to serve a s i x - m o n t h term before he could m a r r y her. Peters' next a p p e a r a n c e was at the University of L o n d o n in 1956 where he sat for the intermediate a r t s e x a m s , which, if p a s s e d , give a student the e q u i v a l e n t of a college s o p h o m o r e ' s proficiency, acc o r d i n g to Prof. B r u n d a g e .

Off a n d r u n n i n g , Peters turned u p next in the fall of 1957 as a g r a d u a t e student at M a g d a l e n College, O x f o r d , c l a i m i n g a B.A. f r o m the University of L o n d o n . At Oxford he read for the B. Litt. degree u n d e r Kathleen Maj o r , a n eminent s c h o l a r . In March 1958, Peters tired of his single state was m a r r i e d for the fourth time, this time to Miss M.A. H. Bailey, a g r a d u a t e student at O x f o r d . Trials beset the newly m a r r i e d couple, a n d early in 1959 Peters w a s f o u n d out a n d dismissed f r o m Oxford. He fled to Ireland where he applied s i m u l t a n e o u s l y to the Anglican A r c h b i s h o p of Dublin a n d the R o m a n Catholic Bishop of the diocese of Dublin. Unfortunately, these two men were cousins; they c o m p a r e d notes, a n d Peters w a s off a n d r u n n i n g a g a i n .

A m o n g the p h o n y degrees he claimed was a Ph.D. in history f r o m the C a t h o l i c University in Washington.

Prof. Rupp accepted the thesis for the M.A. in research without a n y proof of Peters' p o s s e s s i o n of a B.A. Prof. B r u n d a g e s a y s that Peters had convinced Rupp that he needed a d e g r e e in o r d e r " t o be cured of his n e u r o s i s " and reportedly h a d a p s y c h i a t r i s t s u b s t a n t i a t e his claim. PROF. RUPP, said Prof. Brund a g e , is a " b o o k i s h m a n , " a n d s o m e w h a t " o u t of touch with the w o r l d . " He c o n c l u d e d , " P e r h a p s he h a d too much C h r i s t i a n c h a r ity t h a n w a s g o o d for h i m .

In 1964 he b e c a m e a m e m b e r of the C r o u p for the Study of P o p u l a t i o n at C a m b r i d g e University. T h i s a p p o i n t m e n t was rather short-lived, a n d Peters w a s exposed a g a i n . IN T H E SPRING of 1 9 6 5 he applied for a j o b with the Ipswich Record s Office a n d was denied e m p l o y m e n t . He a l s o applied to the University College in Dublin for a position in history, but tailed to o b t a i n this post also. F r o m the fall of 1965 to the s u m m e r of 1966 he t a u g h t at Leys, a n a c a d e m y in C a m b r i d g e . D u r i n g this time he w a s c o n t a c t e d by the registery which suggested Peters' n a m e to H o p e College. H o p e hired Peters in J u n e 1966 in a h u r r i e d attempt to replace Dr. J o h n S p a g n o l a , a f o r m e r professor at the A m e r i c a n University in Beirut, L e b a n o n . Dr. Spagnola signed a c o n t r a c t with Hope in late May 1966, but s h o r t l y after that wrote to the College a s k i n g to be relieved of his position o n the staff. DR. LARS GRAN BERG, at that time Vice President f o r Academic Affairs, released Dr. S p a g n o l a f r o m his contract, a n d notified Dr. Paul Ci. Fried, c h a i r m a n of H o p e ' s history d e p a r t m e n t , that a m a n was needed to replace Dr. S p a g n o l a . Dr. Fried interviewed Peters in L o n d o n o n J u n e 15, 1966, a n d on the b a s i s of his r e c o m m e n d a t i o n , Peters w a s hired.

P E T E R S IS B E I N G DEPORTED now on the b a s i s of two c h a r g e s : One, he failed to notify U.S. authorities of his 1 9 5 3 dep o r t a t i o n before his a r r i v a l ; a n d two, he falsified his a g e on his visa p a p e r s . However, a c c o r d i n g to British Consul J u p c h a u , he will not be held for a n y c h a r g e when he arrives in E n g l a n d . President Calvin A. VanderWerf

Reaction to Draft Plan Mixed By Rob Branch President J o h n s o n ' s p r o p o s e d c h a n g e s in the present selective service system h a s raised a f u r o r which m a y t a k e quite a while to s u b s i d e in W a s h i n g t o n a n d o n Hope's campus. J O H N S O N S PROPOSAL a s k s for a " p r i m e list" of eligible 19-year-olds a n d p r e v i o u s l y deferred men each year. F r o m this list men would be selected for the d r a f t by lottery. The p l a n would end g r a d u a t e deferments in m o s t fields except medicine, dentistry a n d the m i n i s t r y , and abolish deferments for paternity a n d in m a n y "essential o c c u p a t i o n s . " By the p l a n , a n u n d e r g r a d u a t e student presently deferred would be put into the 19-year-old pool when he g r a d u a t e d . A student without a d e f e r m e n t c o u l d no longer receive a 2-S rating. Previously deferred men, aged 2 0 to 25, would also be put into the p r i m e pool for the first y e a r . Also by the p l a n , the President would have power to m a k e c h a n g e s in the system without Congressional approval. IN W A S H I N G T O N , the southern Democrats are l e a d i n g the o p p o s i t i o n to the plan. Mendel Rivers, Democrat f r o m South C a r o l i n a a n d c h a i r m a n of the House Armed Services Committee, h a s s a i d that he will try to restrict the p r o p o s e d power of the executive o r d e r by c r e a t i n g " C o n g r e s s i o n a l guidelines." Retired General Mack C l a r k , head of the c o n g r e s s i o n a l d r a f t panel, is a g a i n s t the e n d i n g of u n d e r g r a d u a t e deferments. Rep.

Most H o p e men h a v e said that they are a g a i n s t these c h a n g e s simply b e c a u s e they d o not w a n t to be potential draftees while in college. Andy Atwood said that it seemed s t r a n g e to him that after s o m a n y y e a r s of e n c o u r a g i n g education, the federal g o v e r n m e n t should officially reverse its s t a n d by a b o l i s h i n g student deferments. " T h e y a p p a r e n t l y d o n ' t care if y o u ' r e in school or n o t . " JIM B E K K E R I N G , Head Resident of Kollen Hall, is a m e m b e r of the faculty who could be affected by the revisions in the d r a f t system. He said, " T h e s e c h a n g e s would certainly put n o p r e m i u m on e d u c a t i o n . In the p a s t the d r a f t could be used as incentive to get men to continue school. Now men like Dr. Brockmeier a r e tossed in with the 19-year-old high school dropouts." Dr. Richard Brockmeier, 2 9 , Professor of physics, reflected a n o ther attitude a b o u t the d r a f t c h a n g e s ; he p r o p o s e d a different plan. " T h e a r m e d services," he said, " s h o u l d be o p e r a t e d on the s a m e principle as the fire and police d e p a r t m e n t s o r a n y other

two p l a y s of this y e a r h a v e h a r d ly succeeded in e d u c a t i n g either the actors or s p e c t a t o r s in the theatrical experience.

T h e a t e r must h a v e the status it deserves. T H E MOVIE S I T U A T I O N is even worse a n d h a s been steadily declining ever since the Park theater discontinued foreign films o n M o n d a y nights. Both H o l l a n d theaters seldom swerve f r o m accepted Hollywood standards. " T h e S o u n d of M u s i c " would prob a b l y r u n for ten y e a r s here. T h u s H o p e College must s u p p l y students with high q u a l i t y cinema (which is u s u a l l y foreign). It h a s failed to d o this. M o r t a r b o a r d presents one film a m o n t h , but these movies h a v e been decidedly below s t a n d a r d . Such films as " O n the W a t e r f r o n t " a n d " P ' o r Whom the Bell T o l l s " h a v e all m a d e the

r o u n d s of television's late shows. They a r e g o o d movies, but the i m p o r t a n t films, those which a r e elevating the cinema to a high art f o r m , h a v e not been presented. The latest M o r t a r b o a r d selection, " R i c h a r d I I I , " was s h o w n last s u m m e r , a n d its s o u n d t r a c k difficulties c a u s e d people to w a l k out then just a s they did last weekend.

'Wait 'til Next Year'

Coach Looks to Better Future Wrestling at Hope College h a s had a very s h o r t a n d quite d i s m a l history. Started officially two y e a r s a g o , the sport h a s never captured the s a m e interest a n d s u p p o r t as H o p e ' s other athletic activities and has failed to produce a won-lost record c o m p a r able to Hope's other teams. vVHY DOES HOPE fail to attract competent men to their wrestling t e a m s ? Why h a s wrestling never seemed to h a v e incited the excitement which exists on l a r g e universities? P r o b a b l y , the greatest factor which h a s stifled interest in wrestling h a s been the lack of a d e q u a t e practice facilities. During tnis past s e a s o n , facilities did not exist on c a m p u s to q u a r t e r the practice of the team. All practice w a s at West Ottawa High School, which is a 10 minute drive f r o m c a m p u s . In addition to the lack of facilities o n c a m p u s , Hope's m a t m e n h a v e operated the entire y e a r without a full time coach. P e r h a p s the consecjuence of h a v ing a coach w h o sees his men between 2 0 a n d 3 0 minutes a d a y can be illustrated in one wrestler, who r e m a r k e d , " I still d o n ' t k n o w the basic m o v e s . "

C E R T A I N L Y , T H E situation needs i m p r o v e m e n t if a team is going to exist a n d represent the school. Athletic Director L a w r e n c e Green h a s p r o m i s e d that "facilities will exist o n c a m p u s next y e a r , and there will be a full t i m e c o a c h . The location of these facilities a n d who will coach the team still reremains unknown. C o a c h Sid H u i t e m a , director of this y e a r ' s t e a m , s a y s that whoever guides the team will h a v e to be s o m e o n e v e r y experienced in wrestling. " N e x t y e a r the l e a g u e will be o p e r a t i n g u n d e r a n Olympic s t a r t , " s a i d H u i t e m a , " a n d if an inexperienced m a n is coaching the team, H o p e ' s record prob a b l y will not i m p r o v e . " C o m m e n t i n g o n the new facilities, which m a n y believe will be located in the newly p u r c h a s e d A m e r i c a n Aerosol Plant, Huitema said that " s h o w e r s a n d other essentials are g o i n g to h a v e to be built if the College is s e r i o u s a b o u t i m p r o v i n g practice facilities." AS A R E S U L T , wrestling o n c a m p u s seems to be a serious c o n s i d e r a t i o n of the athletic dep a r t m e n t . Where facilities will be and w h a t they will be like a r e still uncertain. Fven the identity of the c o a c h is u n k n o w n at this time. However, a n y m o v e by the
