Upholding the principles of a free press

Hourly hike will benefit some, not all, students by Sharon Roebuck features editor ^April 1, 1991 marks the first day for the increase of the minimum wage rate. Instead of the $3.80 per hour that students received upon starting an on campus job , the beginning rate is now $4.25. "It makes me feel good that we're getting a decent student wage," said Jane Holman of the Physical Education department in the Dow Center.

But, "It wouldn't make much of a difference because money is taken out for taxes anyway," Nienhuis added Can the situation be remedied? Like any real world situation, Hope has a limited budget. "We can't increase the budget because we haven't been given the money," said director of Human Resources, Bruce Himebaugh. • Himebaugh explained that the Student Employment budget is a mixture of Hope dollars and federal

'We can't Increase the budget because we haven't been given the money.' -Bruce Hlmbaugh

Students Christina Rutgers ('93) and Jennifer Kapusinski ('92) agree because, as Kapusinski said, the increase will only benefit them since they weren't being paid above the minimum old rate anyway. But there may be some students who are disgruntled and feel that there is a disadvantage to the increase. The disadvantage is similar to that of any job in the "real working world" where an increase in the minimum wage may mean new employees earning the equivalent of what their experienced counterparts earn. Students who were being paid above the previous $3.80 wage will now be paid the exact amount of $4.25 without any further raises, at least not the first year. Jodi Nienhuis ('93) and Jason Everts ('93), both agree that the above situation is not a fair one. P i v-

subsidies that the school applies for each year to pay for campus work study hours. The budget amounts to $ 1,200,00, $200,00 comes from the government and the $1 million from Hope. "If that (subsidy) didn't come in there would be less money for student employment ," he said. Students on campus work-study can receive up to $500.00 per semester which is paid by the government according to their needs. Any money made over their awarded amount is paid by Hope. H u m a n Resources allocates the money from the Student Employment budget to each department and monitors the expenditures each year.

WTHS raises nearly $1,300 by Scott A. Kaukonen news editor In an effort to raise money to meet its budget, WTHS-FM (89.9), the Hope College radio station, held a radiothon this past week. The station managed to raise $1282.46, surpassing the expectations of station general manager Martha Brandt and business manager Heidi Short. "We were trying to raise money from listeners we don't normally get money from," said Brandt. "It works well at other stations, and it's a good way to learn who our listeners are." According to its Student Congress-appropriated budget, WTHS must raise $5000 through underwriting and fund-raising to help fund itself. According to Short, WTHS is roughly halfway to its requirement.

"We should come out into the clear when it all balances out (at the end of the year)," said Short 1 "We're saving money in other areas and we won't be on the air this summer." Beginning at 4 p.m. Monday, DJs went on the air, asking for pledges and awarded premiums to listeners based on the amount of money they pledged. All premiums were donated to the station. A pledge of $5 or more could earn a CD or cassette single, EP, or even full-length album. A $30 pledge was worth a lawnraking by WTHS staff. Fifty dollars earned the donor a guest DJ spot with their favorite WTHS DJ. The station also gave away pizzas, movie tickets and dinners including one with Brandt and station advisor Reed Brown. The highest pledge won two

tickets to the Jane's Addiction concert at Wings* Stadium in Kalamazoo, May 10. According to Brandt, a 50 year-old housewife, "who loves WTHS." won the pledge battle and the tickets with a pledge of $106, securing the win by $1. The radiothon also included a live broadcast from Phelps cafeteria and a dance Friday night "We had a really good response from the community. They were saying they're really going to hate not having us on the air during the summer," said Short. According to Brandt, about 75 percent of the pledges came from community members, while about 25 percent came from Hope students. Short noted that the donations from the community were generally lai^er.

News Mid-East peace mediator presents Muste Lecture by Jill Sandor staff writer Daniel Padnos, a peace mediator in the Middle East, spoke last week for Hope's annual Musto lecture. A J . Muste was a Hope student and anchor editor who became a peace activist. The Muste^ Memorial Committee was formed to present an annual lecture in his honor. Padnos. a native of Holland Michigan, emigrated to Israel am graduated from Haifa University. He currently woilcs with the Israeli peace movement towards a solution to the Arab-Israeli dispute. Padnos became involved in the peace movement when he first came to Israel in 1976. Raised in the Reformed Jewish tradition and committed to ideals of social justice, Padnos was struck by the inferior economic standing of the Palestinians in Israel. So he joined an association of Jews and Arabs to deal with the situation and encourage equality between the two groups. The Palestinian population consists of three main groups, there are 700,000 "Israeli Arabs'XPalestinians who have Israeli citizenship). About one and a half million Palestinians live in the Israeli occupied territories.

Thousands of others remain scattered throughout the Middle East and the world as a result of the Palestinian Diaspora. Although Palestinians in Israel are well-educated, they maintain a low economic status and are subject to discriminatory practices. The "peace movement" refers to several organizations of Jews and Palestinians that work toward various common goals related to resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict.

He also emphasized the goal of mutual recognition of the Israeli government and the PLO.

said, for the first time, the U.S. officially allied itself with Allied powers against Arab nations. Because of this and growing U.S. dependence on Middle East oil, there will be an increasing need for military protection of oil in this region. "From now on, I don't think oil will flow from any part of the Middle East without military protection, be it Egyptian, Saudi, or American." Fatah predicted that this would cost between 200 and 300 billion d o l l a r s over the next 50 years. Another new pattern is Israel's growing reliance on Western military protection, as demonstrated in the war. "Israel can no longer boast to be the protector of U.S. interests in the Middle East," he said. Fatah also predicted that the division among Arab nations caused by the war could result in a military alliance between Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt and the Gulf states. , This could lead to a possible

counter-alliance between Iran, Iraq and Jordan. He emphasized that in spite of hostility between Iran and Iraq's Sunni and Shi'ite Moslems, a common threat to Arab culture may draw these two nations closer together. Fatah believes that in the future, both Iran and Iraq will pursue a policy of pan-Arabism rather than nationalism. 'From now on, I don't think oil will flow from any part of the Middle East without military protection.' -Fatah Fatah spoke extensively about the plight of Palestinians living under occupation in the Israeli occupied territories. Fatah himself has lived in the territories since 1967, when Israel occupied the West Bank, Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights. ^ Mpfe thaa 50 .perqept of the land in the West Bank and Ga?a has. j

Unusual coalition battles for free speech (CPS) — Students could win the right to challenge campus rules prohibiting them from insulting their classmates if Congress approves a bill introduced in midMarch. Hundreds of campuses began banning "fighting words," T-shirts, posters and other forms of expression that could insult women, gays, minorities and even military veterans about two years ago, in response to growing frustrations with some collegians' sexism and racism. But such rules, some critics charge, have made campuses into the only places in the U.S. where residents can be punished for uttering unauthorized thoughts. In a strange alliance with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), conservative Rep. Henry Hyde, R-Ill., proposed legislation March 12 to empower students at private colleges to fight speech codes that ban ethnic or racial slurs.

'This is the first reaction to the political correctness movement on c a m p u s , " observed Sheldon Steinbach, of the American Council on Education, a Washington, D.C. umbrella group for college presidents. The Collegiate Speech Protection Act would permit private campus students to challenge in federal court school rules punishing so-called hate speech. The bill, which would amend the civil Rights Act of 1964, exempts campuses controlled by religious groups. Public college students already have the right to sue their schools over speech codes, and can reap damages. He introduced the bill just weeks after private Brown University expelled student Douglas Hann for shouting slurs about black, gay and Jewish people while staggering around campus intoxicated one night last October.

The First Amendment guarantees "freedom for the speech you hate," Hyde said at a news conference. His bill, he added, intends to "prevent you from getting kicked out of school if you said soiiicthing' unpopular or that o f f e n d s somebody." Codes of conduct are "a politically and cheap quick fix," concurred ACLU President Nadine Strossen, who joined Hyde at the press conference. While troubled by campus hatred; Strossen called speech codes "a misguided, ineffective, as well as unprincipled and unconstitutional way to deal with the real problems of racism, sexism and other forms of bias." The courts would rule on the students' legal claims on a case-bycase basis, Hyde stressed, according to free speech precedents that allow curbs on obscenity, fighting words, libel and other abusive behavior.

Muste Continued from P. 2 establish previous links with the peace movement, because of its actions in the war. But he emphasized the importance of the PLO in bringing about a peaceful solution to the conflict. "There cannot be peace in the Middle East without reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians. And there can be

Wage Continued from P. 1 "It's not something that the college did not anticipate," he continued. The potential problems arising from the minimum wage increase had been foreseen but because the Student Employment budget is fixed and the school has to stay within the budget, the problems have to be worked out within the limits. Essentially, the decision making has to be made by the different departments who hire the students. According to Himebaugh, the departments are not told whether or not they should increase everyone's pay to the same amount and/or hire less people. It is simply up to the department. The departments must consider set guidelines concerning student employment, like giving first-priority to students who need work as a part of their financial aid package. Departments are affected j•

no reconciliation without recognition between the Israeli government and the PLO."' Padnos said the key to solving the conflict was to get the U.S. and it5 allies to pressure Israel to end occupation of the territories so that peace can be established. "If we, Israel abide by the resolutions,UN resolutions 242 and 338, there can be a peace process. If that happens, I will shed no tears over the war."

differently by the minimum wage increase and so deal accordingly. The Van Wylen Library and the Food Service are two of the largest student employers and have made decisions that are rather similar. Don Hershey, manager of Food Service, said that his students have never been paid minimum wage in the last two years. They have been paid above it because of what the jobs entail. Hershey said that it is hard to get students to work for minimum wage because of it. "We're not the most popular employers because of it," he said. Colleen Conway of VanWylen hopes to pay all her students the designated $.45 raise whether they were below the $3.80 wage or above it. But at this point she can not promise regular increases in pay per semester because of it, at least not right away. "We are doing our best without cutting the numbers of students we employ," she said. As' for smaller' departments,

Padnos shared various personal experiences of his years in the peace m o v e m e n t , such as being wiretapped by the Israeli government for his activities. He also once went to jail for refusing to serve militarily in the occupied territories. He said the most moving experience he had has when Peace Now and Palestinian representatives look part in a joint demonstration by encircling Jerusalem holding hands.

such as Education , Biology, and Physical Education, the plan of action differs with each situation. Jane Holman of Physical Education offers various jobs whose differences, she feels, should be reflected in the salary. For example, jobs that have special qualifications or requirements, like lifeguarding, are paid above the minimum and given a raise each semester. Pat Conley-Briggs of the Education department mentioned that most of her students were jus beginning and all would benefit from the wage increase. Lori Hertel of Biology says the same except for the animal care employees who earn higher wages because of what their jobs entail. All students will receive the increase, and will benefit because they did not earn more than the newly set amount in the first place. None of these departments have received complaints from students who think the minimum wage increase situation is unfair; ; v.v..'v

EIO hosts Greenpeace speaker The Environmental Issues Organization will be hosting a speaker from Greenpeace on Tuesday, April 16, at 7 p.m. in Wicher's Auditorium of the Nykerk building. Joan D'Argo, of the Greenpeace Great Lakes Regional office in Chicago will be speaking on the importance of implementing a zero discharge means complete elimination of the production, use and discharge of all persistent/bioaccumulative toxic substances. The issue is of great importance to the forty million residents of the Great Lakes Basin (including Holland), who were found in a 1985 study to be receiving "higher exposure to toxic substances than any comparable population in North America." Implementation of such a policy would have profound effects on regional industry and consumers. The public is invited to meet with the speaker following the presentation.

Several members of the fraternal fraternity have had the letters OKE tattooed on their ankles. Andrew Shufelt ('93) said, "I knew it would be permanent. We talked about it and thought it would be a cool thing to do. I always wanted to get a tattoo. The Fraters mean a lot to me." John Slack ('93) said, "1 will not regret it one day down the road. OKE is something that is going to stick with me the rest of my life." Darren Young ('91) does not have OKE tattooed on his ankle, but has a different tattoo. Young said, "I got a tattoo because I always wanted to. I liked it and wanted to be different. Its also dangerous. My parents still don't know about it." Tim Cemy ('91) does not have a tattoo. Cerny said that some members decided to get tattoos because "they were all fired up about becoming actives. It's the spirit after pledging. They want to hold onto the bonding experience." Shufelt said, "The tattoo is something to identify with. I will be part of the fraternity for the rest of my life. OKE are three letters that mean a lot to me." The tattoos are on the inside of the ankle. Shufelt said, "It's

Mysterious posters spark controversy (CPS)--Mysterious campaign posters tacked up around a New Y o r k c a m p u s h a v e led to a c c u s a t i o n s that the national College Republicans organization is surreptitiously trying to form a new political party to subvert liberal student politicians at schools around the country. The party, known as Common Sense, reportedly has played a role in student government elections at three different campuses in recent weeks. "I've talked to students at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Wisconsin at Madison" who have claimed there are Common Sense parties being run by members of the C o l l e g e R e p u b l i c a n s on their c a m p u s e s , says Dan Slepian, student government president at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. The group, Slepian said, tried to disqualify him from recent campus elections by putting up trick posters that violated school campaign rules. At the University of Wisconsin, the Common Sense party, which had a f t e r n u m e r o u s campaign v i o l a t i o n s d u r i n g last year's elections, reported Adam Young, a Student Senate representative. Student government officials at the University of Colorado couldn't confirm or deny the existence of a Common Sense party there. "It's my guess these are local movements," replied Jason Miko, executive director of the C o l l e g e R e p u b l i c a n national Committee in Washington, D.C. "We're not making any effort to form Common Sense parties," he

Common Sense party as a "liberal party" and "a political alternative to the College Republicans" that supported Slepian for president. But then Common Sense Party campaign manager Ron Nehnng, who also is president of Stony Brook's College Republicans chapter, denied Common Sense members produced the poster. His denial implicitly suggested Slepian himself produced the posters, a step that would cost Slepian his job. "How can we endorse (Slepian) if we are running someone against him?" N e h r i n g asked the Statesman, Stony Brook's student newspaper. Nehring denied Common Sense had anything to do with the posters. But Slepian was not convinced. "Someone's putting them out, and I think it's them (Common Sense party members)," Slepian said. "I think they're trying to disqualify me," he said. Various College Republican groups in fact have been involved in other" "dirty tricks" efforts to subvert liberal candidates and groups with which their members disagree. In 1989, for example, the College Republicans chapter at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington destroyed a campus group headed by a leftist student by sending 15 of its members to a group meeting, taking advantage of lax group voting rules and then voting to remove the leftist from office.

Increase should reward returning workers The reccnt increase in the minimum wage from $3.80 to $4.25 is being met with mixed reactions. The increase raises student hourly wages to $4.25» for first year students this is a $ .45 raise but for those already above minimum there wages will only be increased to the n^W level of minimum. This essentiallv means that first year students are now eamiri^the same vnouDtaslbdents who have worked for the same department for two or three years. Despite the difference in experience there will be no difference in pay. These students have lost the benefits they earned from returning to the same job each year. While it is understandable that the college has a limited budget to pay student wages, some of the money set aside for these wages through work study is provided by the federal government and not all comes directly from the college. Not all students earn the maximum amount the school budgets for them. This money goes to the college regardless of the amount actually earned by the student. This seems to be a problem without an easy solution but just paying fcvekyone $4.25 across the board does seem to be a just answer. For those students who have lost $ .10 or $ .15 cents an hour it may not seem like much, but it adds up. The other factor is the fact that these students have been reduced to the level of incoming students after several years on the job. The best thing that can be done is for each department to try and find away to reward their student workers who have been employed by that department for several years. If it is possible to find the resources to continue to pay them above minimum this should be done. This problem won't go away next year either. The students returning for a third or fourth year will be making the same amount as those returning for the second year. It may be too late to include such raises in the budget for the next school year; but it needs to be done for the 1992-93 school year.

Attitude toward rape outrages student To the Editor, 1 would like to begin by thanking you for printing "RAPE: a reality, a dilemma^ by Jennifer Heitman and to thank Ms. Heitman t for writing it. Disclosure can be awfully painful for a survivor but vital to others suffering the same but silent pain. I applaud her courage. After reading the article, I commented to a co-worker that it was a quite powerful story. At one point in the conversation she said to me "But how could she let t h a t happen twice?**. My insides sickened at the word "let Also, a two time survivor of sexual assault, 1 was outraged that people actually still blame the victim! So hurt that I could not reply. What I write here is not to shame my co-worker, but to open our eyes to reality. No woman allows herself to be raped. Rape is not a pleasurable form of sex but a degrading form of torturous|

violence. It strips you of everything - hope, pride, security and happiness are but a few. I, like many women, will never be able to completely rid myself of the fear, the nightmares or the shame. Do you not think that I along with Ms. Heitman and countless others have already blames ourselves over and over for the first time? And how much more the second! Ms. Heitman surely did not ask for these men to break into her house so she could relive her nightmare again! Are we so foolish to believe anyone would? Please hear me people! Educate yourself - open your eyes and your heart enough to feel our pain. And realize that rape is a l w a v s the responsibility of the rapist and not the victim! Until we learn this, I have to wonder who is the worse criminal: the man who inflicts the wound or those who won't allow it to heal. Laura Jackson ( 4 93)

Professor defends Coors' environmental record Dear Editor This letter is in response to what I view as a misinformed attack on the integrity of the Coors Brewing Company by the Hope Environmental Coalition. My credentials as a supporter of environmental causes include many hours in defense of wilderness preservation through leadership in an active citizens organization of over a thousand members. One of our most active and effective members was hired at mid-career by the Coors Company and serves as a leader in the Sierra Club. It saddens me when the Hope Environmental Coalition allows itself to be used by a national group which uses information which is misleading at best. I grew up in Colorado and did not believe that the information given about the Coors Brewery sounded right. I called Coors and got accurate information from the first person I talked-with. Coors did dump toxic liquid vteste in the City of Denver landfill as charged. However, it was done from 1965-80 and was perfectly legal at the time. 249 other companies did the same thing and had the permission of the Colorado Department of Health. Coors did less than 20% of the total dumping involved and the dump is not near Golden but rather 15 miles southeast of Denver or 25 miles from the Golden Brewery. Coors has helped study the site for cleanup. 1 next asked about the company environmental record and was given some interesting information. The aluminum can used throughout the industry was developed by Chairman Bill Coors s

in the 1950 , s when, as a young engineer, he got liied of seeing his family name on the side of highways. Even the aluminum industry would not support its development. The Coors Brewery alone spent the monev to perfect the can at a time when it was a small regional brewery and has had a continuous recycling program ever since. This obviously was good for the environment and a good investment. Coors now has the world's largest aluminum can plant and recycles 102% of its output which is above the industry average of 65%. Thus, Coors has done on a large scale for decades exactly what the Hope Environmental Coalition has been trying to do at Hope this year. No other brewery can match their record. That is an example of the kind of determination characteristic of the family being put to a major public good. In the same decade, Coors built Colorado's first modem sewage plant at a time when it was not required and put the City of Goldeo on it as well. Tfiis makes me suspect that the motive of the national organization has little to do with

e x e c u t i v e s and workers a r e encouraged to participate in b o t h political parties. However, n o member of the family has e v e r funded the KKK, but in 1989 C o o r s was named on of "The 50 B e s t Places for Blacks to Work", b y Black Enterprise Magazine. J o e Coors did oppose the ERA. Bill Coors supported it. Some members of the family are s t r o n g conservatives. They .also h a v e some members who are nearer the middle of the road, a few r e l a t i v e liberals, and one member w h o left the business for the ministry. The national student g r o u p said to be organizing the b o y c o t t recently told Coors that there w a s no boycott. Perhaps the H o p e Environmental Coalitiort did not even contact the national g r o u p let alone Coors. One of the ironies of this whole situation is that a n y successful boycott of Coors w o u l d benefit the Philip Morris T o b a c c o Company which owns Miller, o n e of Coors' two leading competitors, which has 20% of the market. To be sure, there are actions of members of the family one c a n disagree with and 1 disagree w i t h some of what some of them h a v e the environment. The Hope group done in the past. However, o n t h e is either misinformed or believes whole, J view the family as one of liberal rhetoric such as that of some the most responsible families in symposium speakers that corporate America. Conspicuous conservatives and business do not consumption in particular is not care about the environment. What characteristic of the family. W h e n seems to upset some people about Mike W a l l a c e . w a s sent to Coors is that it carries the name of investigate Coors labor practices in a family which has members with the early 1980^ , his surprise strong viewpoints and the integrity finding was that Coors did n o t to sometimes put citizenship ahead discriminate, the workers were of profits. At a time when many happy, ai\d that the family was corporate executives avoid taking viewed as benevolent. 1 spent two _• stands in the name of profits, its. See •Coors,' P. 7 » t

Opinion SLIP OF THE MIND

Squirrels and temples

JIM MONNETT "It's a long way down." "I don't have the energy to ump. Isn't that pathetic?*' "You're not seriously considering jumping are you?** "Why not?" "A squirrel like you, the top of Lubbers ... uh uh.** "Why not, Al? Why shouldn't want to end it all. My life has been frozen by inertia. I feel like ife is warm jello.**

'And that's what your life is like?' "Yup." "BS. Toilet Filler." "Thanks, that's a nice thing to say to those who are about to die." "Your not going to die." "Why not? I could run down to the edge and go Supersquirrel. ^It's a bird, it's a plane, it*s Falling Road Kill.* Just call me Pancake Squirrel."

"Huh?** "Warm jello. It looks good. L iggles and is fun to play with, but when you get right down to eating t, it's warm and disgusting."

"Stop it." "Go away." "No, 4 Won't. Tell me about it." 4

Tell you what?"

"Don't play stupid. Why are you up o n ' top of Lubbers threatening to go ballistic? What's happened? It s spring. It's warm out. We can dig up a nut without breaking a claw. "It's stupid because nothing particularly bad has happened Spring is definitely here. The Hope students beneath us are scrambling with the last wave of papers. Things are definitely happening in people's lives. All this is going on and I'm a squirrel." "Yup." "Al, don't you wonder about it all, sometimes. Don't you want to

hard. Life is too hard." "Would you rather be a human?" "No, they got it worse. Always running around trying to get ahead. Blech. I'd rather be a squirrel." 'Then why are you up here?" "Because being a squirrel is hard too. I know God created me to be a squirrel. He makes me the fullest squirrel that I can be. He took a zombie, added love, offered Himself as a sacrifice for me and made me a new creation. But He's asking too much of me. This life is too hard." "Maybe that's the point." "Huh?" know what the point is ? Why did the Big Guy make squirrels? He "Maybe the point is that this made humans to worship Him. life IS too hard. It's too hard even Most of them don't. That's got to to find God and be a bom again be a bummer for Him to see all squirrel. This could be why so these people that He wants to come many squirrels have found God in high school and then "grown up" alive choose to remain dead." "But that's humans, what's it and turned away from Him. God got to do with you?" wants to be involved in every part "Me? Me? What's it got to do of a squirrel's life." 'This is cliche." with me? That's my point. God "Could be, but the Bible was put me on this planet to grow, to live, to eat nuts, to raise a family written about 2,000 years. Plenty and to be the best possible squirrel of time to make cliches. Think of that He made me to be. But it's too it this way, Fred, God says a

squirrel's body is the temple of God" "S ure, and 1 should quit smoking." "Don't limit the temple idea to good health. Just as God is everywhere in His temple he wants to be everywhere in your life. He knows this world is hard. And it's harder when you choose him, and find yourself living against the grain of the culture. He wants to not only knock on your temple door and come in, but take over it. To make decisions with you about what type of lunch to eat and which comic book to read in the bathroom." "Why would He care about those things?" "He says he has counted the hairs on yoiir head. If he took that kind of time out of his busy schedule, He must care about the little things in our lives that make life seem like warm jello." "I don't know if I have that kind of faith. I'm no supersquirrel." "No, Fred, but we're like Jonah. Even as we sink beneath the waves, Jesus, our whale, wants to swallow us and take us where He wants us to go."

Coors Continued from P. 6 years working for a Colorado Congressmen and remember Coors as the cleanest plant of the many we visited.

Coors' brewing processes, even these processes were questioned. It saddens me to see a Hope College group take up the sport of Coorsbashing just when it is going pacts with Black and Hispanic groups and settled a boycott with the AFLCIO. . A recent vote at the University of Colorado was 4-1 against a boycott of Coors. If an environmental organization wants to condemn an individual corporation, it would seem to me that they should conduct a thorough investigation of the company involved and at least compare its record to that of its Competitors. Misleading

statements about dumping in a landfill and the activities of a now retired member of the family living in California are l^ss important to me than the fact that the cMlpany had been a corporate leader in environmental, preservation since long before it was popular. Have any of those sponsoring this boycott at Hope made any effort to know that it once contributed to an endowed chair at Hope College? I have once visited^ the company, talked to members of the family in informal settings and read a good deal about the many sides of these issues. If any member of the Hope Environmental Coalition wants to

debate these issues with me, I will be glad to do so. I do not want to be in the position of urging students to drink beer. Rather, I want to defend the integrity of a company and family against unfair attack. I have not stock in the company or relationship to the family. If one chooses to drink beer, it would seem to me that one should make a rational choice on the basis of taste and product quality and then drink legally and in moderation.

languages of Zambia: Bemba, spoken in the northern province, and Nyanja, spoken in the eastern province. The pieces are based largely on scripture passages which the choir improvises into songs, changing the rhythm until they are satisfies with the result.

Sisters of Mercy delivers new age rock (CPS)-Stare, for a moment, into the fire, look past the flames, to the embers burning ever so brightly, performing the mesmerizing final dance of their short lives as they turn and soar toward their infinite sleep, burning ever toward darkness. That's the dark, somber sound of The Sisters of Mercy.v With the release of "Vision Thing," the band's third album. The Sisters is building upon a cult status that has elevated vocalist Andrew Eldritch, his work, and his offstage antics to near-mythical proportions. Eldritch, who has a deep, growling, tortured vocal style, is the brains behind The Sisters of Mercy, as well as its founder, songwriter and constant focal point. He started it all in 1980 in Leeds, England, "there was a gap," Eldritch explains "Everybody in London, which is where the whole Endritch music industry is, was promoting at the time, very much like they are today, in fact, a rather hideous blend of cocktail and disco music. "Nobody I knew up in Northern England could relate to that," he remembers. "We had our own different thing going. "So Eldritch, along with original guitarist Gary Marx, formed The Sisters of Mercy. "We had a fuzz bass, a very cheap drum machine, and I used to shout a lot through an echo machine," he recalled. "People really got off on it." A few months later, "Damage Done," the sister's first single, was released on their own Merciful 'ease label, tblnstant acceptance. "We spent the following 10 > trying to keep as much of

that as possible," says Eldritch of the early sound, "while fitting it into song at the same time, which is not easy." Eldritch originally got into music, he says, "because it seemed the natural thing to do if you were a punk rocker. Everybody was in a band then, someone asked me to play on their record, so I did and it just kind of grew from there. "A handful of singles and live performances won the Sisters a small, though loyal European following, prompting Warner Brothers to offer the band worldwide distribution of the band's records in 1984. The spring of 1985 saw the release of the self-titled Sister' debut album, which jumped immediately into the U.K. Top 20 album chart, yielding a number of hit singles in the process. It wouldn't be until two and a half years later, with the 1987

release of the single "This Corrosion," that the sisters would become known stateside. The alternative music scene happily embraced "The Sisters of Mercy," the album release that followed. The enigmatic "Floodland" came next, selling a respectful 200,000 copies in the U.S. market and providing college radio with two additional hit singles, "Dominion" and "Lucretia My Reflection". Of "Vision Thing", Eldritch says, "it's loud and it's exciting and it's very funny." Shooting more than a few poetic arrows at both American and English cultures, "Vision thing" is a creative reflection of the ills of a world gone awry. But Eldritch maintains he's not trying to wake people up with his startling lyrics and apocalyptic vision.

College News Senator claims 4-year colleges offer 'nonsense' courses (CPS) -- Four-year colleges are too expensive and clog up their curricula with "nonsense" courses, Sen. Robert Byrd said in a speech to the Association of Community College Trustees. Byrd, who heads the important Senate Appropriations Committee, complained that the University of North Carolina at Greensboro offered a course about Grateful Dead fans and that the University of Illinois had a course about billiards. Community colleges, on the other hand, "offer our best opportunities for educating a new generation of leaders at a relatively low cost to students, Byrd added.

Police take over frat houses (CPS) - In an apparently unprecedented college raid, federal drug police raided three University of Virginia fraternities March 22, arresting 12 members and taking control of the houses themselves. Members not involved in the investigation can move back into the Phi Epsilon Pi, Delta Upsiion and Tau Kappa Epsilon houses, but not before signing new "rental agreements" with the federal government. The 12 students were arrested on charges of selling hallucinogenic designer drugs, LSD and mushrooms. Because taking possession of private social clubs like fraternities is so unusual. Drug Enforcement Agency officials said they got prior approval for the raid from U.S. Attorney General Richard Thomburgh.

Study says more women in peril (CPS) - Rapes and rape investigations galvanized students at Cornell University in New York, the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Wisconsin at Madison the third week of March. On March 22, meanwhile, a U.S. Senate report claimed more women were raped around the U.S. in 1990 than ever before, exceeding 100,000 victims for the first time. "American women are in greater peril now from attack than they have ever been in the history of our nation," Sen. Joseph Biden, DDel., said in releasing the report. Cornell public safety officers were investigating the reported gang rape of a student March 13, and Boulder police were probing if an inebriated, partially unclothed woman student who was hit by a car after running from a fraternity party had been sexually assaulted. In Madison, Chi Phi fraternity President Benjamin Schomburg said house residents watched as a couple had sex on the chapter's lawn March 21, believing the sex was consensual. However, the woman later told police that she had been raped.

Student campaigns for on campus abortion clinics (CPS) -- The leader of a failed effort to establish the first oncampus abortion clinic in the U.S. says he'll soon move his efforts to other schools around the U.S. Organizer Andy Temay, past president of the Progressive Students' Union, has vowed to take the issue elsewhere. "Making it a more national issue will draw a more powerful group behind us," Temay said. Temay helped organize an effort earlier this school year to establish an abortion clinic on the University of Texas at Arlington campus. UTA students rejected the effort, voting 1,430 to 746 against allowing first-trimester abortions in the student health clinic on the campus. A week later, the Student Congress voted down a resolution to send the proposal to the school administration, which had promised to reject it anyway. In elections, students on other campuses often have opposed letting women have the option of abortion, much less having a clinic on campus. At Virginia Tech, for example, students voted down a student government resolution that opposed further restrictions on abortion. Despite winning the few campus-wide student abortion elections that have been held, antiabortion activists complain student governments are biased against them. "Too many student governments think they can impose

receive funding," said Obemberger, who knows of about 300 campuses with pro-life groups. Pro-choice groups, he maintained, get funding "without question." On the other hand, prolife groups are at "the very least interrogated." "Student governments around the country are notoriously unfair."

Lacrosse to face MIAA foe Albion by Dan Combs Sports editor At Hope College, lacrosse has been a club sport that has been played by many students since the late 1970 s. This year's team, consisting of close to 30 members, is looking to forget their disappointing season last year and to regain the winning ways that the team had two seasons ago. In the 1989 season, the lacrosse team suffered only one defeat Last year, with many of the same , members from the previous year's squad, the team only won two games. The team has two new player coaches this year. They are Tom Theile and Doug Henke (^l). When the weather conditions are not favorable for practicing outdoors, the team plays in the Dow gymnasium. When they do

this, the team has a faculty advisor who helps the team set up practice times. The team's faculty advisor is Chaplain VanHeesL With many returning players and some new additions, this year's team is strong at all positions. The positions on a lacrosse team are; attackers who always play offense, mid-fielders who play both offense and defense, defenders and a goalie. Some key players on this season s team are Mike Schanhals ('91), Pablo Peschiera ('92) and Pat Cunnington (*93) along with the player coaches. Dan Baas ("94) is anew member to the team that will contribute a lot. The team plays between 11 and 15 games each season. They play two teams from the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA). The two teams are Calvin and Albion. Other teams that Hooe

competes against are Western Michigan University and Hillsdale College. Hope is a member of the Michigan Lacrosse Association. Lacrosse is not a one gender sport at Hope College. This year there are two female players on the team. This is not unusual. There have been female players on many previous lacrosse teams at Hope. Many schools have a women's and a men's lacrosse team. So far this season Hope has played three games. They have had mixed results. They opened their season with a loss to Western Michigan. They then went to Hillsdale College and won 6-4. They next went to Albion and lost 13-12 in sudden death overtime. The team gets a chance for revenge today. They will play Albion this afternoon at the Buys Athletic Field.

lihC 1 was waving people in to s o r e every inning."

The Hope College women's softball team's bats came alive last Saturday as the Flying Dutch took two games from Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) rival Olivet. The scores were 14-0 in each game. The Dutch hit four home runs in the games including two grand slams in the third inning of the first game. Rachel Zimmer ( 4 93) had one of the grand slams and she also added a two run homer in the second game. "That was so exciting," said Head Coach Karla Wolters. "We knew that we were going to bust out sooner or later. We're just glad it was today." "We have some hitters who can put the ball up in the air and with the wind blowing out it's going to be a high scoring day," said Wolters. Wolters also said, "1 was real pleased too with our patience at the plate. There were a lot of pitches that were near the strike zone and for the most part we did a great job of hitting strikes." Neither game went the distance of seven innings. Both were called after five because the Flying Dutch was leading by more than 10 nins.

Wolters was also happy about the team's play in the field. "I was very pleased with the defense. Sometimes, in a game like this, when you are batting for along time it is hard to go back to the field and concentrate on defense." Pitching was also strong for the Flying Dutch. In the first game, Lisa Wolters ('92) and Danna Bolenz ('94) combined for the shutout. Eileen Malkewitz ('91) and Erin Neil ('94) held Olivet scoreless in the second game. "I thought that our pitchers pitched real well. That is just what we expect them to do. They have been pitching real well and we just have not been giving them the run support"

The third inning was the decisive one in both games. Hope scored ten runs, with the help of two grand slams, in the third inning of the first game. That gave the Dutch a 12-0 lead. In the second game, Hope scored seven runs, including the two run homer by Zimmer and a solo home run by Heather Wolf ('94). That made the score 10-0. "We needed those wins," said Wo'ters. "Everybody did a super job at making good contact. We had a lot of base hits. It seemed

Before the two wins, Hope had lost five games in a row. In those games, the Dutch were leaving 8 to 12 runners on base in each game. Hope improved its overall record to 8-8. They are now 2-2 in the MIAA, after losing two games to Adrian. Adrian, the league's top team, is 6-0 in the MIAA, but Walters is still confident of the team's chances to win it all. "I still think that we have a good shot at it. We need a little help from Alma to beat Adrian. We need to stay tough ourselves. We virtually have to win all the rest of our games, but the league tournament counts as part of the standings," said Wolters. "If we win the rest of our league games and do well in the tournament, and also if somebody knocks Adrian off, there is still a chance." Hope continues league play this week. Yesterday they played two games at Kalamazoo. Saturday, Albion will come to Holland to play two games.

Former student sues school bank

Baylor basketball player says he earned Camaro (CPS) -- Claiming he had earned a free car by playing basketball for his schoof, a former Baylor University student has filed a $3 million countersuit against his Tner coach and a bank that tried to x t the money it had loaned him the car. 91

The student claimed the school had lured him to Waco in the first place by giving him the car. John Wheeler, who played basketball at Baylor in 1985, filed the suit in McLennan County Court against former coach John Haller, who coached from 1978 to 1985,

aiKi MBank Waco, which loaned the money for the 1982 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. Six months ago, MBank filed suit to collect the loan, which was due in 1987. Wheeler's lawyer thinks the move was in retaliation for

Wheeler's role in a National Collegiate Athletic Association investigation that ultimately led to the suspension of Baylor's basketball program for two years. Haller resigned shortly after the investigation ended. The suit claims Haller illegally

recruited Wheeler in 1984 by bribing him with the Camaro, and alleges that Haller and the bank obtained Wheeler's signature on the promissory note fraudulently. "John Wheeler could not have

Baylor Cominuea from P. 10 gotten that car loan on his own. He had no money. He couldn't qualify," maintained Edwin Sigel, Wheeler's attorney. Sigel said the bank officials lent Wheeler the money because they were "trying for their own purposes to be a good Samaritan to the university." "In my judgment the suit has no merit whatsoever," responded
