Dirk Dewitt ('96) has the grand daddy of all excuses for an extension on his class presentation—his research blew up. Literally. Dewitt and seven other students on the Washington Honors Semester were on their way to Roanoke, Virginia, to watch Hope compete in the Final Four, Friday, March 15. Unfortunately, their van decided it would be a charming time to burn to a charred shell. Doug Roberts ( ' 9 7 ) had just refueled his now deceased grey '86 G M van and returned to the highway, when the temperature gauge surged to hot. Roberts and Dewitt got out to check under the hood expecting an overheating radiator. instead Dewitt concluded that "Doug, your car is on fire." " S m o k e began to pour in through the open windows," passenger Cindy Achterhof ( ' 9 7 ) said. "We couldn't breath, so we got out leaving all of our stuff behind." The group had just made a pit stop at 7-11 and began to try to fight the fire with their Slurpees. The slushy beverages had precious little impact, and the entire front of the van was engulfed in five minutes. A UPS driver stopped and offered his cellular phone to call the fire department. In the meantime they hustled to get their stuff out of

the van. "I noticed that I didn't have my camera and 1 ran back into the van while flames were shooting out of the front," Achterhof said. "I realize that was quite stupid now." Not everything was salvaged. Dewitt not only lost his research, but a pair of sun glasses and his fuzz buster, as well. By the lime the fire fighters arrived twenty five minutes later, the van was completely engulfed. "It look them twenty minutes to put out the fire and by then only the frame was left," Roberts said. The fireman believe the fire was caused by improper water circulation in the engine. Roberts was stunned by the sudden loss of his car. "It's hard to imagine that I'll never drive the van again. I've had it since high school. It will lake a couple of days to get over." Dewilt, however, didn't have a couple days to make up his incinerated research for a pres e n t a t i o n to be given that w e e k . Dr. J a c k Holmes, the Washington s e m e s t e r ' s advisor, offered no extension. Driving a rented car, the group finally arrived in Roanoke, but not in time to see Hope's win in the semi-finals. Eric Friedman ( ' 9 7 ) isn't willing to let the story to be told without giving an account of his heroism. "I think my watermelon slurpee bought us some precious seconds," Friedman said. "Oh thank heaven for 7-11."

When New Yorkers give you strange looks, you know you must look a little odd. But that could land you on national television. At least it did for the Hope College Chapel Choir. While on tour in the Eastern slates over Spring Break, the Choir spent some time in New York City. They had performances nearly every day, except for the 25th, when they had lime to go out and lake the Big Apple by storm. It was on this fateful day that a few members of the Choir decided to throw caution to the wind and try to get on television. "We tried to gel tickets for Letlerman, but couldn't, so we thought that maybe we could go see Monlel or s o m e t h i n g , " said A m b e r Toth ('96). "We were shopping on 5lh Avenue and passed the Today Show studio. We remembered that the cameramen show the crowd that gathers outside the window. So we got determined to get on television. We were all gung-ho about it." The Choir members rushed back to their hotel and tried lo rouse their fellow performers to join them in the quest to gain national fame, at least for a f e w minutes. They decided lo go down to the studio at 6:30 the next morning. Only about 14 of the total 57 Choir members were willing to drag themselves out of bed in the wee hours of the morning for the escapade. "We knew that our choir robes would attract attention," Toth said. " S o we carried them to the studio with us. Some of the guys were wearing theirs and people were turning to look at us. When New Yorkers stop and stare, you know you'll attract attention." The robes, which were first worn in 1960, come in a variety of colors. The overall robe is m o r e T O D A Y on 2

Opinion

our voice. Breaking the J. Crew myth One hundred and one J. Crew barn jackets, one hundred and two J. Crew barn jackets, one hundred and three... Hope College has long been criticized as a campus of pretty, middle-class, Honda-driving, white kids w h o wouldn't know the reality of the outside world if they stepped beyond the precisely groomed Pine Grove into it. We've often been told we fall victim to the "fish bowl p h e n o m e n o n , " the "vanilla s y n d r o m e " and, don't you know, half our campus is out for the " M R S . degree." We're good kids, many snoot, but we lack understanding of those w h o are different from ourselves. Yeah, well, don't gel your khakis in a bunch. This weekend 100 some Hope students reached for their sombreros, twirled around the stage in traditional African wear and gobbled up quiche faster than Great Lakes' pepperoni pie at the annual "Images: A Reflection of Culture." The program was originated by students and entirely student run. The response from students and the community? Phenomenal. The Knickerbocker Theater w a s packed.

Dear Editor,

Anchor

A m y Halverson's "Celebrations of E v e " article. Equally n o t e w o r t h y have been the articles describing other events on c a m p u s that deal with genderrelated issues, such as Jenn D o r n ' s " S p e a k e r s e n c o u r a g e the a c c e p tance of God as Mother," and the coverage of both the c a m p u s visit of date-rape speaker Katie Koestner and the mock rape trial sponsored by C.A.A.R.E. Heather Bosch gave thorough and thoughtful attention

T h e staff of The Anchor is lo be applauded for this year's coverage of W o m e n ' s Week events, as well as w o m e n ' s issues in general. For W o m e n ' s Week(s), Jenn Dorn's February 14 article gave an excellent overview of the f o r t h c o m i n g events, which was followed up by several insightful articles, including Kim Powell's coverage of Dr. Susan Komives's keynote address and

to the sensitive and important topic of sexually transmitted diseases in her March 6 article, "Sleeping with the Enemy." You s h o u l d b e p r o u d of y o u r good w o r k .

Late comers couldn't find seats. More impressive, said Neil Sobania, Director of I n t e r n a t i o n a l E d u c a t i o n , w a s that the s t u d e n t s p a r t i c i p a t i n g — b e they J a p a n e s e , G e r m a n or IrishAmerican—wanted to perform in a culture outside their o w n — a clear sign that Hope students are hungry for more than a new Visa Gold. It is true that Hope is homogeneous. And yes, we often take comfort in the familiar life we are used to. Yet our community is reaching out to other cultures, striving to u n d e r s t a n d life f r o m a m o r e global p e r s p e c t i v e . Programs like Images are proof of such a shift in attitudes. S o , H o l l a n d , l o o k f o r u s to s p o n s o r m o r e multicultural functions. We'll be there experiencing it with you. You'll see us right off the b a t — w e ' l l be the ones in the J.

Dole-ing it o u t

Spotlight

S t u d e n t jaunts t o C e n t r a l A m e r i c a

Kim Powell A few w e e k s ago I had the opportunity to converse with Elizabeth Dole, President of the American Red Cross. I asked her feelings on w o m e n leaders and if she had advice for female college students. Like a true leader Mrs. Dole answered boldly. She said, "You need to find what you feel passionate about, an area that you feel a sense of mission about and that is the way you find happiness." It's no w o n d e r that Mrs. Dole would respond that way. After all s h e ' s a very passionate w o m a n . Leaving her position as Secretary of Labor, five y e a r s ago she volunteered for President of the American Red Cross. At a time w h e n other w o m e n are complaining about inequality in America Mrs. Dole's mission is improving the health of people by o p e n i n g the c o u n t r y ' s e y e s to health conditions around the world. Recently Mrs. Dole has taken on a new mission. For the past few months s h e ' s been focussing all her attentions on c a m p a i g n i n g for her husband Bob Dole, G O P presidential candidate. Travelling around A m e r i c a on the campaign trail m a k e s for a hectic schedule. At 3 p.m. she was in Holland, Michigan, by the time 5 p.m. rolled around she w a s in Cincinnati, O h i o . T h i s is a schedule most people would run f r o m , but Mrs. Dole is happy because she is passionate about what she is d o i n g . D o n ' t think for a m o m e n t that the Red C r o s s is no longer important to Mrs. Dole. Her sabbatical is only temporary. Once the c a m p a i g n is over she'll be back in action, first lady o r not. Mrs. Dole is a unique w o m a n . Not only d o e s she talk about finding a passion, she makes an example out of her o w n life. S h e proves that passions can be a life long mission. Mrs. D o l e ' s advice s o u n d s so simple but it is advice that many women overlook. T h e w o m e n of Hope College need to find a passion. You don't need to c h a n g e the world. You just need to find a mission and follow it with passion.

Six a.m. March 15. Cool morning in Michigan. Lynn Smith ( ' 9 6 ) gulped down her c o f f e e in nervous anticipation of her u p c o m i n g eleven-hour flight to C e n t r a l A m e r i c a f o r S p r i n g Break.

tion," Smith said. Public transportation is the main way to get around. But unlike the an average b u s seen on the streets of any large A m e r i c a n city, run down school buses carted people like herds of cows. An average two hour drive in a car would take about six hours. Smith even saw a Holland school b u s truckin' d o w n the

Nicaragua. "All the times that I had sat and wondered what the trip would be like, I a b a n d o n e d . " But nothing w o u l d prepare her for what she would experience. " W h e n you visit another culture you see a lot," Smith said. " A lot, more than you bargained for, and you see a new culture but at the s a m e time you view your o w n culture f r o m a new perspective." Days b e g a n at 5 a.m. Mercury rose to a scorching degree by midmorning. "You have to get a j u m p start on your day, the temperatures are scorching before you even realize it," she said. T h r o u g h the c o u r s e of a day, Smith reported taking an average of three s h o w e r s because of the trem e n d o u s heat. While not under the water, she would try to temporarily escape the tremendous heat by laying on a h a m m o c k in the shade. At night, after the sun sank down b e l o w the o r a n g e horizon, in the small t o w n of Diria, N i c a r a g u a , families would talk and h a n g out. "I really missed couches and carpets," Smith said. Instead everyone w o u l d pull u p rocking chairs and talk for entertainment. Hitting the sack.

Not to mention the roosters crowed all night. T h e saddest sight Smith saw? " A n old decrepit w o m a n with no teeth, dressed in rags, and begging for money," said Smith. " S h e had been forgotten. It's no belter in the United States, even with our wealth t h e r e are p e o p l e h e r e like t h a t woman and it makes me so sad, you really appreciated your excess." Besides the poverty. Smith found other things upsetting. "Next to a sign about Jesus would be a Playboy bunny or advertisement s m u t , " Smith said.

colleagues, and don't grand stand. D o l e a l l o w e d p e o p l e to get a glimpse of the personal side of Bob Dole. S h e talked about the Thanksgiving when her husband invited 35 teens from inner-city Washington to have Thanksgiving dinner at a local restaurant. It turned out to be o n e of the m o s t h e a r t w a r m i n g T h a n k s g i v i n g s they ever had. Dole told the audience this attitude of giving is consistent with B o b Dole and herself. O n e of the things she wants to do as first lady is increase charitable g i v i n g in A m e r i c a . C u r r e n t l y A m e r i c a n s only give 2 percent of their income to charity and she feels the country is ready to do more financially and in volunterism. After having served as President of the American Red Cross for the past five years. Dole is very familiar with the w o r k n e e d e d to get people more involved in c o m m u nity activities. She praised the Hope community for it's C A S A program and was presented with a book of pictures that

C A S A students at Lincoln Elementary colored for her. S h e also took time out to greet the entire audience in a reception line, m a k i n g a positive impression on the Holland audience. Hope Student Kristie S t e k e t e e ( ' 9 8 ) w h o introduced Dole on behalf of Young Republicans w a s esp e c i a l l y i m p r e s s e d by D o l e ' s speech."! felt very honored to welcome Elizabeth Dole to Hope," said S t e k e t e e . "I liked her idea on v o l u n t e r i s m . S h e ' s a g o o d role model to influence society." Mrs Dole's trip to Holland w a s clearly a mission to get votes for her husband. "You need to vote for Bob Dole so he can carry out Bill Clinton's promises," Mrs. Dole said. A f t e r s h e l e f t to d a s h o f f to Cincinatte, C o n g r e s s m a n Pete Hoekstra reminded students that their vote makes a difference. " T h i s is a p i v o t a l e l e c t i o n , " Hoekstra said. " W e shape your future, involved o r not, informed or not."

A l t h o u g h s o m e d i f f e r e n c e s in life-styles were s i m p l e to a c c e p t . Smith suffered f r o m s o m e culture shock. "Your job d o e s not d e f i n e w h o you are, your family d o e s . " Smith said. T h e work ethic is the opposite from what is found in the United States. Smith reported on an atmosphere which is very slow paced. " N o o n e w a s ever c o n c e r n e d about t i m e , " Smith said. "It w a s hard to re-adjust once I got back to the states." A l t h o u g h the w o r k ethic is an extreme, when tackling a task N i g a u a g u i a n s work very hard all day long. W o m e n can balancing u p to 6 0 pounds of objects to sell on

S w i m m e r s stroke t o glory a t national m e e t American 21 times. Hope also did very well in the relay events with four All-American relay performances in the 200 medley, 400 medley, 800 freestyle, and the 200 f r e e s t y l e . Megan H u n t e r ( ' 9 7 ) a l s o put in s t r o n g showing earning Honorable mention Ail-American twice in the 100 breast stroke and the 200 breaststroke. Other Hope honorable mention All-Americans were Melissa Thiel ( ' 9 7 ) and Lindy Chelf ( ' 9 7 ) . The m e n ' s team also traveled the Atlanta Georgia for the national meet and did their best to live up to the standards set by their f e m a l e counterparts. They did come close in bring home an eighth place finish. Kenyon College won the champion for the 17th straight year. This was the sixth consecutive year the Flying Dutchmen have finished in the top ten nationally. All six swimmers from Hope earned N C A A AllAmerican status. Keith N y k a m p ( ' 9 6 ) earned AllAmerican status for the fourth year in a r o w in the 2 0 0 b a c k s t r o k e . H o p e a l s o racked up three AllAmerican relay performances in the 200 freestyle, 200 medley, and the 4 0 0 f r e e s t y l e . H o p e ' s o t h e r AllAmericans were Derek Vanerheide ('97), Bob Springsteen ('99), Dan Shelley ('98), Jens Milobinski ('96), and Shawn Kinser ('96).

T h e result was deja-vu all over again for the Flying Dutch w o m e n ' s swim team. For the second consecutive year the team clocked in with a fifth place finish at the N C A A Division III national swim meet held in Atlanta, Georgia. Coach John Patnott has now led his troops to a top ten finish for the sixth consecutive year. Hope's performance w a s so strong that all ten of the qualifiers for the national meet returned with some sort of AllAmerican recognition. Kenyon College of Ohio won the national title with 542 points, followed by UC-San Diego with 380, Denison 336, W i l l i a m s of Mass. 255, and finally Hope with 183. A total of 5 3 schools scored in the meet pointing further to the dominance of H o p ' s swimming program. Kristen H o v i n g ( ' 9 6 ) w a s t h e third leading point-getter at the national meet with 54 points. In earning all the points Hoving earned AllA m eri can status in three events. Hoving won the 500-yard freestyle in a school-record time of 4:56.95 and was the silver medalist in both the 1,650 freestyle and the 200 butt e r f l y .

When I asked him how this ranked in the accomplishments of his life he said "I always knew I could do it, I'm just glad that I could show the world that I am better than you Cos." Aaron cited his love of Taco's and his girlfriend as inspiration for his winning picks. In honor of my defeat I shall take this week off to show my humility to Aaron, the king of all.

Fast finish Track teams give strong performance GREG PAPLAWSKY sports editor

H o p e C o l l e g e l a c e d up t h e i r shoes, sharpened their spikes, and dug in at the Hope invitational last week. Both the m e n ' s and the w o m e n ' s teams were in action. The w o m e n ' s team ran wild on the competition taking first place in the tournament with 112 points, second was Aquinas with 29, and Southwestern finished third with only 27 points. T h e meet s h o we d the D u t c h ' s potential for this year. Last year the squad finished third in the MIAA, but the team was very young. This year with more experience the team should finish either one or two in the MIAA. "Calvin should again be at the top of the MIAA," coach D o n n a Eaton said, "It'll be Alma and us fighting of second, and Albion should field a stronger team this year." C o - c a p t a i n A m y Meyers ( ' 9 7 ) will lead the throwers this season. Meyers, an A l l - M I A A p e r f o r m e r last year, is the defending champion in the javelin. T h e other co-captain

at Hope Invitational

is Amanda Hill ( ' 9 7 ) who is at the top of the Hope pack in sprinting. Hill has recorded the best times for a Hope sprinter in the 100 and 200 meter dashes this year. The missing links this year for the Dutch are the distance runners. Four of t h e f i v e top r u n n e r s will be absent due to outside activities. Freshmen cross runners will fill t h e i r shoes for the Dutch this season. On the m e n ' s side of the

Hope Invitational behind Southwestern. Hope only lost by a mere two points. Hope was far ahead of third place Aquanis. A solid core of returning athletes and a crop of newcomers will have to shoulder the load this year in the M I A A . "We have a good nucleus

to b u i l d a r o u n d , " c o a c h M a r k Northuis said, "We have to call on a lot of newcomers to perform well if we have a chance at the MIAA title." Captain Erik Carpenter ('96) will lead the distance runners. Carpenter is a two time All-MIAA team m e m b e r and is t h e d e f e n d i n g M I A A c h a m p in the 1500 meter. Captains Nick Ward ('96) and Jon Gillesby ('96) are at the top of the Hope throwers. Gillesby holds the Hope College record in the hammer throw and Ward placed first in the MIAA Championships last year in the shot put. The sprinters are the least battle tested of the lot with many new faces making appearances this year. Jon Adamson ('97) appears to be in position to do well in the 400 meter hurdles. Hope has put together a pair of strong teams for the M I A A campaign and if all goes the Hope way a pair of strong showings will result.
