Food Day Program You can help world hunger What is Food Day, and how are the students of Hope involved? As students, many of us search for ways that we can be of help to others on campus, in the community, and in the world. Food Day offers a unioue opportunity for the students of Hope and the people of the Holland c o m m u n i t y to join forces to help the hungry of the world. Food Day began as a day of awareness concerning world hunger and t h e science of food nutrition. Now, it is also a day to accentuate the concern we need to have a b o u t world h u n g e r problems, and to participate to help relieve these problems. April 21, Thursday, is the day set aside for this year's Food Day.

yy Dean Wettack 's job "fun D e a n F. Sheldon W e t t a c k arrived at Hope ten years ago in 1967. He had been teaching in San Jose, California after completing graduate work at the University of Texas in Austin. Wettack came to Hope then because of the good tradition of the Chemistry departm e n t , going on h e r e since t h e 1940's and SO's. During the Golden Age of Science in the 1960's Hope was able to d e v e l o p t h r o u g h grants and various foundations to stay ahead of other Liberal Arts science programs. Wettack assumed responsibility of Natural and Social Sciences for the first year under the new dean system. The d e p a r t m e n t s under the Natural Science division include Biology, C h e m i s t r y , Geology,
Mathematics, Physics and Comput e r Science. T h e p r o g r a m s of Upward Bound, Oak Ridge Prog r a m , Health P r o f e s s i o n s and E n v i r o n m e n t a l S t u d i e s a r e also part of his concerns as dean. His office is located in Peale Science Center. W e t t a c k ' s special i n t e r e s t in t e a c h i n g and r e s e a r c h is in photo-chemistry. He studies molecules after they absorb ultra-violet light and does a variety of experiments to see how they might react or w h a t o t h e r p r o c e s s e s t a k e place. Air pollution and photosynthesis are two concerns which fall under the study of photo-chemistry. Because of his special interest in teaching and research, part of the terms of his agreement included i n v o l v e m e n t in c h e m i s t r y research. Wettack has also taught )art time on sophomore and senior evels of chemistry. He enjoys the pure thrill of learning in a research situation. He feels the importance of working with students when he can teach them through research and because he can interact with faculty and students he still feels he is an educator as well as an administrator. Part of his job responsibilities are to secure external funding for his division. Wettack is pleased that presently the Science division has been given $500,000 in active research grants. The NSF-URP has given three grants for student

The Ticket Office is open 12:30 to 5:30 daily, e x c e p t S u n d a y . Because the production is being presented in the Studio Theatre, seating is limitod. Since tickets are being sold rapidly, those interested in seats are urged to make plans early. research during the summer. The Chemistry, Biology, and Physics departments each received one of these grants. Hope is the only strictly four year college in the nation to have three grants given to the school. Since the grants are given with some kind of geographical distributing as a factor, three grants for one college says something about the nature of the Science division. Working with the faculty, Wettack submits proposals for grants. At present, there are between $900,000 and $1 million in proposals which are under review. Dean Wettack has many ideas on improving student curriculum o f f e r i n g s and d e p a r t m e n t s . He plans to continue to develop what is offered to students compatible with what they want and need in years ahead, like developing the engineering program. Another area is in Environmental Health Sciences, a field which is wide open in employment and research
Participating students have given up t h e i r e v e n i n g meal on t h a t Thursday night. Members of the c o m m u n i t y will t h e n buy t h o s e meals. Community members will replace these students and eat the regular SAGA meal during supper hours. Since the students have already paid for these meals as part of thoir monl ninn. nil the money to purchase the supper meal, bought by members of the community, will go to C R O P . CROP is an organization concerned with feeding the world, and helping t h e underdeveloped countries improve their food production. S t u d e n t s who h a v e d o n a t e d their evening meal are encouraged to participate in a march to the
Civic Center. There a Third World meal of rice and tea will be served. As a Community we can share in this meal and try in a small way to experience what hunger means to others. Mr. Bower, a r e p r e s e n t a t i v e from CROP, will be at the Civic C e n t e r to p r e s e n t a p r o g r a m dealing with CROP's role in world hunger and with other concerns of lack of food in the world. All t h o s e who d o n a t e d t h e i r meal are asked to meet in Phelps lobby at 5:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 21, to join with others on a walk to t h e Civic C e n t e r . The program will last to approximately 7:00. A special thank you to those who d o n a t e d a meal to help another.
Duo-pianists perform Sunday concert at the Grand Rapids Civic A u d i t o r i u m , and for various schools and clubs throughout the state. This marks their first full recital together. The program will include Sonatas by Clementi and Brahms, and Variations on a Theme of Paganini by Lutoslawski. The concert is open to the public free of charge.
Duo-pianists Joan Conway and Charles Aschbrenner of the Hope music faculty will p r e s e n t a concert Sunday, April 17 at 3 p.m. in W i c h e r s a u d i t o r i u m of the Nykerk Hall of Music.

possibilities. Wettack also contributes a fair amount of effort to continue to build t h e C o m p u t e r Science d e p a r t m e n t , for both s t u d e n t m a j o r s and o t h e r s t u d e n t s and professors. The need to use the computer has been increasing for many different areas of study in recent years. Another area of possible change in c u r r i c u l u m is to o f f e r more applied mathematics for students in science, as Biology and Geology, among others, have become much m o r e m a t h e m a t i c a l in n a t u r e . W e t t a c k also feels t h e need to d e v e l o p to p o t e n t i a l t h e e a r t h sciences, as they can play a strong role for educational science students and non-science students to c r e a t e a critical concern and knowledge of the environment. Making science educational for non-science students as valuable as possible for years ahead in all science d e p a r t m e n t s is also a concern of Wettack. His concept of
science is to do t h e job of educating non-science students in p r e p a r i n g t h e m t o deal with scientific concerns they will need to develop in the future. W e t t a c k feels his division is strong as a whole, with no departments deficient in the curricular a r e a . H i r i n g of new s t a f f , an important duty for all the deans has helped to increase the overall strength of Wettack's division, in the classroom and research. Wettack feels that all the deans h a v e t h e b e s t i n t e r e s t of t h e institution in mind when carrying out t h e r e s p o n s i b i l i t i e s of their jobs. For him there is an extra in science e d u c a t i o n , b e c a u s e in learning science a student needs to do science r a t h e r t h a n j u s t reading it out of a text book. For Wettack, being a dean has been fun, b e c a u s e he has s t a y e d in science, because of the people he works with, and because he is a dean of a very good division at a very good institution.

Griffin trying to save direct student loans U.S. Senator Robert P. Griffin, R Mich., has launched a campaign to save t h e National Direct S t u d e n t Loan p r o g r a m from threatened extinction at the hands of the Administration. GRIFFIN co-authored the NDSL p r o g r a m as a f r e s h m a n Congressman nearly 20 years ago. Since its inception in 1958, the NDSL program has provided aid to nearly 4 million students from low- and middle-income families, many of whom could not otherwise have gone to college. BUT proposed presidential budget cuts would slash funding for this highly successful p r o g r a m from $321 million to only $800,000 this year and to zero in 1978. "With the increasing difficulties low- and middle-income families now face in meeting the heavy financial strain of higher education, this is precisely the wrong time to add to t h e i r b u r d e n s , " Griffin said in a statement. "KILLING the p r o g r a m , " he said, "would be a terrible blow to countless young Americans who otherwise would not be able to afford" higher education. U n d e r t h e NDSL p r o g r a m , federal f u n d s are funnelled to participating colleges and universities, which make education loans directly to deserving students at 3 per cent i n t e r e s t . R e p a y m e n t begins after graduation. "ALTHOUGH the Administration contends that this program is no longer needed, I believe there are very strong indications that realistic c i r c umstances prove otherwise," Griffin said in a letter to Senator Warren G. Magnuson, D-Wash., chairman of a S e n a t e
appropriations subcommittee responsible for education funds. He strongly urged Magnuson to keep the program alive. GRIFFIN took issue with Administration arguments that another program, the Guaranteed Student Loan Program -- through which some financial institutions provide 7 per cent education loans to selected students -- can fill the void left by the elimination of NDSL. fTo pifnH rtviHonrp of reluctance

The House Appropriations Committee has voted to restore $300 million of the proposed NDSL cuts for this fiscal year -- which still would leave the program some $20 million shy of current needs. No action has yet been taken on the fiscal 1978 budget.
Vocal training examined Dr. Lucille S. Rubin, specialist in the i n t e g r a t i o n of voice and movement for the actor, was on the Hope campus this past weekend (April 8-10) as special c o n s u l t a n t to a f a c u l t y - s t u d e n t research team currently engaged in developing an i n t e g r a t e d approach to vocal training. RUBIN, presently a member of the faculty at State University of New York at Purchase has studied with a number of the country's leading teachers of acting, voice, m o v e m e n t and dance and has acted and directed professionally both in television and on the stage. She has published a r t i c l e s on acting, and edits a series on voice and movement for the American Theatre Association's publication "Theatre News." Rubin is a native of Holland. Her mother, Mrs. George Schutmaat, resides at 24 E. 14th St. THE HOPE r e s e a r c h team, directed by t h e a t r e p r o f e s s o r s John Tammi and George Ralph, is exploring a variety of approaches
to vocal training for the actor in o r d e r to develop an i n t e g r a t e d s y s t e m for use in t h e college's theatre program. The project is funded through the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. S t u d e n t m e m b e r s of the res e a r c h team a r e Amy Mills of Westerville, Ohio, Daniel Huizenga of Grand Rapids, Mary McDonald of Austin, Texas, Glenn E b e r h a r d t of Dillsburg, Pa., William Lawson of Allegan, Russell Curtis of Shickshinny, Pa., and Susan Moored of Grandville. EARLIER this semester Prof. K a t h e r i n e Lenel of t h e Boston University School for the Arts was on campus as a consultant to the project. A graduate of Hope, Prof. Lenel a p p e a r e d here u n d e r the college's alumna-in-residence program. In addition to conducting workshops for the research group, she d i r e c t e d a session in vocal t e c h n i q u e s for Holland a r e a community t h e a t r e and high school drama directors.
Student designs Woyzeck costumes by Robert Niedt You e n t e r the t h e a t r e and you're handed a program; nothing unusual about that. Upon opening the program and reading through the list of those responsible for producing this play, you see the name of the person who designed t h e c o st u m e s. The play: WOYZECK. The costume d e s i g n e r : Grace Tannehill. Tannehill is not on the faculty, but is a student and that's where the difference lies. It's a rare experience for a student to design costumes for a major production. THERE'S a lot more to costume design than meets the eye of the audience, and Tannehill learned that lesson through experience. She became interested in the technical end of theatre last summer when she worked as a seamstress for the Hope Summer Repertory Theatre. Before that she had always been involved in t h e acting side of theatre, having appeared in several productions at Hope. But the requirements for technical theatre always intrigued her. The S u m m e r T h e a t r e work proved s t i m u l a t i n g enough for Tannehill and last fall she took an " i n d e p e n d e n t s t u d y " course in c o s t u m e design from t h e a t r e faculty chairman Richard Smith (who also designs costumes for most of the theatre productions). "I ENJOYED working with other people making costumes last s u m m e r , but this i n d e p e n d e n t study with Dick was really good. I liked the one-to-one relationship b e t w e e n s t u d e n t and p r o f e s s o r , and we worked at my speed. I learned quite a lot," she commented. Among the things one needs to learn in costume design, according to Grace, is rendering, making the c o s t u m e s look good on p a p e r , painting with water colors, effective research for period designs, making the costumes look good on t h e s t a g e , and various o t h e r techniques of design. "AFTER THE course was over," Tannehill continued, "Dick asked me if I though I was ready enough to desien the costumes for WOYZECK. That blew me away, but I thought that I should learn to make my mistakes and learn to deal with them now. It's one thing to d r a w and a n o t h e r t h i n g to present it. I felt it was time to present it."
Asked where she got her ideas for the WOYZECK designs, Tannehill said that they mostly came out of production meetings, where those involved in producing the play meet to decide how they are going to approach this production. "WE DISCUSSED our feelings and reactions to the play and what our first reactions w e r e . " explained Tannehill, "I read and re-read the play over and over and got many different ideas. I felt d a r k n e s s generally, and I kept getting the feeling of late fall, just b e f o r e t h e first snowfall when everything is gray and ugly. Neutral colors came to my mind, with a textured quality. That's basically what we all decided." "Another point about this play is that is is open. There's no set period in which it occurs, and that's the importance of it: it could happen at any time. All we're saying is that it happened in the past." NO ONE took Tannehill by the hand and told her what to do step by step, she quickly pointed out. Everyone was very supportive of her, and when she had any problems she was helped. "When I had a problem that I just didn't know how to solve, Dick and John (WOYZECK director John Tammi) were very supportive. They didn't decide anything for me, but gave me the options and let me decide. It made me feel that I did everything myself and I didn't have to be led around." COMPARING her role as a costume designer with that of an actor, Tannehill pointed out the constant responsibility and discipline involved with design. She was in charge of others (those who work in t h e costume shop), w h e r e a s an actor is primarily involved with himself. "With design, I take my own ideas and show e v e r y o n e else. Sometimes an actor can't do that. Another way being a designer is different is that my job is basically over once t h e c o s t u m e s a r e finished. The actor's job is still going on, but once the costumes are done, I'm done." said Tannehill. WHAT HAS THIS experience done for Tannehill? She commented that it was a very hard job, but it was also very enjoyable. "I did it to see if I really liked costume design and I found out that I really did. You continually learn doing this, getting the ideas

Editor Irons looking back early by Mary Delene "One of the neat things about having been t h e editor of the anchor has been the help I've g o t t e n from t h e faculty and administration. They have given me story tips, done writing and helped me with ideas on training," said editor Doug Irons. ACCORDING to Irons he has gotten comments from people like Tom Renner who feels it is looking like it did five years ago when in seven out of ten semesters the anchor won special awards. Irons commented, "1 would like to see how it compares now with other papers, maybe it's because I am a very goal oriented person. Even if we are 'third class' this year I still think t h a t we have done some good things." In talking about t h e former editor Terry Graham, Irons said, "Given the conditions she had she did O.K. She took an approach that not many had and although maybe she went too far off the track she really tried hard. I guess maybe it was a problem of taste, Terry had a different sensibility from most of the students on campus, she was a lot less conservative than most." IRONS went on to say t h a t Graham was a last minute replacement for himself, as he did not feel he would have been able to handle it, especially when he found out
what the job entailed. When asked about his semester as editor Irons replied. "Right now it's hard to say il it was worth it, but I imagine later on it will look better to me. I found out I could do something that no one in his right mind would do and I think I did a good job. In a way I would like to come back because I think there are still things that I could do but on the whole I am ready to move on." IRONS also said that one of the hardest things he had to learn to do as editor was to delegate responsibility. "At the beginning I wanted to do it all, but later on I had to learn some discipline, and let others do the writing, cartoons, etc." One negative aspect of being the editor according to Irons is that it is hard on one's grades. He said, "Right now I am taking the minimum 12 credit hours, I am skipping regularly my Wednesday morning classes and I am a little bit behind. I guess that is one reason why a tuition free May Term would be good for someone who is afraid that being the anchor editor would hurt his grades, but who still would be seriously i n t e r e s t e d in taking t h e job anyway if he could have some help." ONE change which Irons would like to see on the anchor is to have
t h e editor assign r e p o r t e r s to specified beats. "I think it would be good to keep in contact with certain people, t h a t way the individual could build up good rapport with the different Deans for example, which might mean that the people being interviewed would open up more to people they know. It would also mean less work for the editor. We have the start of it now, but we need more people on the staff to really get the system going." The last paper for the year has been tentatively set for April 29th. "We won't be able to announce who the new editor is unless the S t u d e n t Communication Media Committee meets on the 26th. As it stands now anybody who might be interested in taking over as anchor editor should submit a letter to Dr. Hemenway of the English Department before April 25. The new editor will be announced before the end of the year, even though it might not make the anchor,] " said Doug Irons. As far as Irons' future goes he said, "After graduation, there are possibilities for me at the Grand Rapids Press, Tom Renner's office, as well as a firm offer from an insurance company, although right now I don't really know what is going to happen."
A chance for compassion I r by Rich Rathbun
The people of Holland, Michigan have of late been facing the possibility of a medium and minimum security prison which will be built on the St. Augustine Seminary property in Laketown Township south of Holland. Area residents have rallied against this proposal. T H E S E ARE some of the reasons why: 1. There will be a danger to the local residents and tourists. 2. This action will be bad for business which would be h a r m f u l to one's livelihood. 3. Property will decline in value. 4. T h e r e are b e t t e r rehabilitation facilities elsewhere. 5. The ecological balance of the area might be disrupted with the large number of people the prison plans to house. The fear that the local residents have is an honest and partly justified one. We really do not know what to expect from this action. To care about the safety of children, friends and oneself is understandable. However, our call as Christians is to care for the safety of strangers and even one's enemies as well. THIS WILL involve risk but no more than that of getting in one's car to travel to work. Also, the corrections director, Perry Johnson, has said, "inmates using the proposed facilities would have a capacity for education and face release in two to five years. There would be no sex offenders, none with pending charges against them for such crimes as rape, r o b b e r y or m u r d e r , none with previous escape a t t e m p t s from o t h e r facilities and none with major aior misconduct in six months.' 'wo a r g u m e n t s recur which Twc revolve around the ideas that the prison will be bad for business and that property will be devalued. Again, the fear for one's livelihood is i m p o r t a n t but it doesn't completely free one from the fact that people are more important than money. One's family is i m p o r t a n t and to s u p p o r t one's family is a rightful concern. But to do these things at the expense of the welfare of others is to pass by the beaten man lying hurt along the side of the road on which we walk. TO WORRY that property will be devalued is in opposition to
one's professed adherence to the roi of Christ. Jesus asks us to care for and love our neighbors. The State is in need of more prison facilities and overcrowding in the prisons, as anywhere, is dehumanizing and most often leads to violence when such living conditions become intolerable. We are rejecting people not a prison. The argument that rehabilitation facilities are better elsewhere is an instance of our turning our backs on those in need. The best rehabilitation facilities are not the elaborate programs and thousands of people who are professionally involved, though these are helpful. R a t h e r , the best rehabilitation occurs when a person knows that o t h e r s in t h e community care about him and t h a t they are willing to forgive and forget a person's mistakes. T H E KNOWLEDGE of the possibility of e n t e r i n g the community to live and work with friends is much more healing than the fear of rejection after one's time is served. The fear of the disruption of the ecology of the area is another form of the question of whether or not people are more important than property. We do not as readily nesitate to build industrial comlexes which destroy the land, pie Wh y is this so different? We are afraid of people in prison. Insofar as one sees the connection between peoples' livelihoods depending upon this ecological balance this a r g u m e n t becomes stronger and more respectable. HOWEVER, the underlying truth is that people are afraid to risk helping others if it endangers their security in any way. It is not very risky to go to church on Sunday or meet with the youth group or a t t e n d a Wednesday night fellowship hour. The only problem with this is we become shortsighted and think the church is only these things. We forget that the church must care for the world. This prison will offer us an opportunity to involve ourselves in the compassion and love of God for people w h e t h e r t h e y be our neighbors on 13th Street or our neighbors in prison. What will happen as a result of the establishment of this prison depends upon the concern we will show for tne people inside. If this
rison is established, we might brget about those inside it. We might say, "Now that we have it lets fill it up." We might say, "I am too busy. I hope our love for others is bigger than that. ALONG WITH this prison issue there is another which is closer to home - the Ottawa County Jail. Carol Gavasso is involved in a support group in the community which is establishing relationships with people in the jail, some of whom are local. She is trying to rally support from local businessmen to provide jobs for people after they get out. Anyone who is interested in the risk, vulnerability, and joy of such involvement with people in this situation is urged to contact her at Van Zoeren library. She is planning a seminar to be held in the fall of this year. The college is a potentially s t r o n g and active body. She needs your help; so do the inmates. I hope we will make the try.

Carter campaign claims begin coming true During the 1976 Presidential campaign, the promises made by Jimmy Carter sounded m u c h too good to be true. He was untried in this game of politics, and I for one leaned towards the more proven player, President Gerald Ford, knowing that if he wasn't leading us to glory, at least it wasn't to disaster.
T h e fingers are still crossed, but President Carter is showing signs of making good on those lofty promises of his. In his relatively short time in office, Carter has been digging into the dirty business of government with a rag, mop, and pail of daring, courage and openness not seen in the upper levels of government since who knows when. Carter's stand with the Russians on arms limitations was a surprise to them and to us, the American people. For a change, the United States was asking for an equality in the arms race with the Soviets, rather than meekly accepting a Soviet advantage. Perhaps it was the relative toughness of a fair proposal that stunned the Russians into rejecting the American offer, or perhaps they just needed time to examine such a different offer at greater length than they were given by the talks.
rl«Y66 THIS h q n u ftINT S o B^O
In either case, their rejection invoked another unusual reaction on this side of the Atlantic: bipartisan support of the President's stand by the Congress. This unity may give more weight to Carter's warning to the Russians that if they fail to act in good faith in later talks, the United States will have to reconsider its slowdown on developing new weapons. On the home front, indications are that President Carter is serious about cutting back on bureaucratic waste. He asked for, and received, the power to make streamlining revisions in the governmental structure, pending only the approval of Congress. Carter has stamped state dinners with his own distinctive style, keeping them early, short, and businesslike. Simple foods are served, and menus are printed in English, rather t h a n the unreadable halfbreed language d u b b e d "Francglois" (a combination of English and French) used before. Carter has urged cutting down on the use of limousines by government officials and has ordered the selling of the Presidential yacht "Sequoia", which costs the taxpayers several thousand dollars daily whether it is used or not. Although President Carter has yet to face the m a j o r crises that will tell of his true ability as Chief Executive, he has m a d e enough significant steps in a positive direction to warrant a pat on the back for having m a d e a good start in his new job. Well-done, Jimmy!
Crack down, Van Zoeren ! T h e scholastic integrity at Hope is in jeopardy. Many students can no longer research their topics, papers, and projects, because those books which are needed to conduct such research, are simply not there. How can Hope maintain its level of scholastic achievement, when the f u n d a mental elements requisite are not u p to standard? Books are missing or rather have been stolen; those books which are existant simply do not fulfill the needs of any serious student. We have listened to students bitching, teachers bitching, and administrators bitching, but nothing is done. Hope's library is i n a d e q u a t e and obsolete. W h a t makes a college a good college or a great college is its teachers, its educa-
Blast the B-one bomber T o the Editor: Some of you may be aware that the Great Lakes Colleges Association operates a Philadelphia-based program called the Philadelphia Urban Semester. This is a work-study program which places a student in a business or organization as a full-time volunteer. I am a DePauw University participant in this program -- currently working with the National Stop T h e B-l Bomber Campaign. T h e Stop T h e B-l Bomber: National Peace Conversion Campaign began in the fall of 1973 and is organized by the American Friends Service Committee and Clergy and Laity Concerned. T h e goals of the Campaign are to: 1) stop production of the B-l; 2) expose and challenge the power of the militaryindustrial complex; and 3) promote peace conversion as an alternative to present American decision-making and use of resources. In an attempt to increase our contacts in the Midwest and East I have decided to write to this p a p e r to ask for your participation in this campaign to reduce the wastefulness of "defense" spending. T h e B-l Bomber is a classic example of wasteful expenditure of tax dollars that, without doubt, would be better transferred to the area of education, and particularly to providing employment to place our graduates in personally and socially significant job positions. Today, the small liberal arts colleges are under considerable financial burdens. Enrollment has gradually decreased over the last few years at most GLCA schools. T h e loss of student revenue affects both the quality of the education our schools can provide, and the amount of financial aid a school can offer to needy students. In the private sector, it is notable that one year's operating costs for nine community colleges, each serving 10,000 students, equals the cost of one B-l Bomber at $86 million each. T h e total outlay by institutions of higher education this last year was $44.9 billion, while the B-l program will cost the American taxpayers $92 billion. Jobs in education have been h a r d hit and projections show that in 1980, while the B-l Bomber program will employ only 22,000 people per billion dollars spent, one billion dollars spent in education would employ 56,000 persons. You can help stop the B-l! A successful three year campaign prevented Congress from approving the go-ahead production last year. T h e decision will now be m a d e
by President Carter within the next two months. I am optimistic that public pressure organized by this campaign will result in a Carter decision killing the B-l's production. These last two months will be crucial to the successful conclusion of this campaign. What we need now are people writing letters to President Carter voicing their opposition to the B - l . If American public opinion is effectively mobilized, the B-l will be defeated. Information and campaign resources can be obtained by writing to: Larry Spears, S T O P T H E B-l BOMBER, American Friends Service Committee, 1501 Cherry St., Philadelphia, PA 19102. Finally, on January 22 of this year the Stop the B-l Bomber Campaign, supported by over 50 national organizations, aided in the organization of anti-B-1 vigils throughout 140 American cities and towns. A similar demonstration is planned for April 15th (Tax Day). Anyone wishing to participate in, or organize, a demonstration on this day should contact us as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from concerned students and faculty. Sincerely, Larry Spears Assistant Coordinator Stop T h e B-l Campaign
tional facilities, and its caliber of student. As has been c o m m u n i c a t e d to us by many students and professors, the quality of a college library reflects the caliber of its education and it is no coincidence that the greatest institutions have the finest libraries. All students should be concerned about the f u n d a m e n t a l element requisite to an exceptional education: BOOKS. We propose the following: 1) T h a t a larger budget be allocated to the library for the purchase of books and that such purchases be left to the combined discretion of the library and faculty with students submitting their own purchase proposals. 2) T h a t a security system (preferably electronic) be installed to safeguard all library materials. A system similar to the installation at Calvin is suggested. 3) T h a t plans be submitted for the expansion of library facilities within the next ten years. Marc E. Bajer, Steven R. Kubacki

selling possessions and goods for the b e n e f i t of all, a communal existence, if you will. Those outside t h e i r community w e r e awed because of the magnificent accomplishments of t h o s e early brethren. Most notable was their willingness to love as their Lord loved them. It was a unique lifestyle, as Jesus said "to be in the world but not of the world." I have not found much of that at Hope nor in most of the Christianity I've e x p e r i e n c e d . I have read of it though, and it does occur in many ways within a g r o u p who call themselves the Hutterites. There are about 20,000 of these C h r i s t i a n s from the A n a b a p t i s t tradition who live in the Northwestern plains states and parts of Canada in collective agricultural colonies. ACCORDING to John A. Hostetler who recently published a book on these humble folk entitled Hutterite Society "Of hund r e d s of recorded a t t e m p t s to establish communal societies in North America, the Hutterites are the only group that has managed not only to survive, but to expand and prosper. Yet the members work without the incentive of private gain, and privileged positions are few. There are no extremely poor or wealthy persons among them, and individuals never worry a b o u t food, shelter, clothing or dependency in old age. I d e n t i t y p r o b l e m s and alienation are virtually non-existent. In their history which spans more than four centuries, there has never been a single homocide. There are no high walls around the
"All the lonely people, where do they all come from?" from Eleanor Rigby by Lennon and McCartney. This h a u n t i n g question was asked by the Beatles in song over a decade ago. The answer to the question then and today is "from everywhere." Even those claiming to be a part of the faith called Christian are lonely at times. I myself have quoted my cross-suffering Lord, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Yes, loneliness caused from without and within us is a great plague on mir qfMMPtv BUT CHRISTIANS should be better off, I tell myself. God tells me in His book that He has not forsaken me and that Christians are supposed to be a group of growing, s h a r i n g , lovine people who bear one another's burdens. So why then this lonely situation, I ask myself? God is still there I affirm. Could it be my fault and the fault of my b r e t h r e n who are called the church? The Hope College catalog tells me that Hope's "great religious heritage is expressed through a dynamic Christian community-stud e n t s and t e a c h e r s vitally concerned with a relevant faith that c h a n g e s men's lives and transforms society." I think that the Hope catalog is either deceptive or has a very different concept of Christian community than wnat I have g r a s p e d from t h e biblical example. THE EXAMPLES of Christian community in the New Testament are ones w h e r e people of faith were gathered together in love.

Get out and meet a faculty friend! by Tom Van Tassell "Hope's faculty members serve not only as teachers, but also as counselors, advisors, and friends to s t u d e n t s . Outside t h e classroom, they c o n t r i b u t e to the intellectual vitality of the campus through evenings with students in t h e i r homes, "bull s e s s i ons " in residence halls or in the campus coffee shops, essays in the ancnor and many informal contacts with students." TRUE? An exaggeration? But does it sound good? It sounds exciting to me, and probably quite attractive to a prospective Hope student reading this on page 10 of the 1976/1977 college catalog. In my mind, this quote is an exaggeration that could be much closer to a reality if students and faculty worked at it. A f t e r my four y e a r s h e r e , I know my time at college would have been greatly enhanced by many more informal, personal times with faculty, just as it was enhanced by bull sessions with fellow s t u d e n t s . I wish I had started relating with faculty on a personal level sooner than I did. GRANTED, some students and faculty do have a friendship relationship, and some professors do make many contributions outside the classroom, be it in their homes, in t h e Kletz, or t h r o u g h other informal contacts with students. But I think many students miss out on such an experience with a professor. Students of Hope College, if the quote f r o m t h e catalog sounds exciting to you, if you want the situation to be like that, then go out and look for opportunities with faculty, even make opportunities. Initiate further, out of class, off the cuff activity. Don't expect the teacher to do that all the time. IK)NT hesitate to talk to a prof out of class, about anything that happens to be on your mind. It doesn't have to be related to his field, or have to do with class subject matter. Talk as vou would
with a guy or gal down the hall. Be serious, be jovial, whatever your mood. But if you'd like to talk, invite a prof for coffee, or just sit in his office. Share experiences. It's not difficult. You'd be surprised what you mi^ht find out. If you feel like starting a more personal relationship, there's no reason not to try. Break through that air of mystique. Be yourself. Some profs are t h e kind of people who invite personal interaction, some aren't. And sometimes the ones who don't seem very open are the ones you should get to know. They might be the ones who you can best relate to. They could be the ones with the most things to share with you. You never know. DORM COUNCILS and other organizations can invite profs to speak to their groups, or to lead discussion. Bible study groups or o t h e r small groups can ask a faculty member to join them for an evening. On an even more informal level, students can see if there are times when they can share hobbies and outside i n t e r e s t s with a teacher, or play handball or jog with one of our athletically inclined professors. The faculty is an asset to this school, even a r e s o u r c e . Learn from t h e m , not j u s t t h r o u g h lectures, but t h r o u g h relationships. FACULTY-let yourselves be a resource outside your classroom. Show your care and concern. Show your fun loving side. Allow yourself t o c o n t r i b u t e outside t h e classroom. Be available, and let students know that. Now I realize that relating like this is just not appealing to some people, students and faculty alike. But there are so many others, stud e n t s and faculty, who would enjoy it and could benefit greatly, who start too late or not at all. If you feel like it, check it out. Don't nesitate. Let's know each other as real people, beyond a "hello" as we pass on campus. If we desire to, we can all learn from each o t h e r through personal relationships.
colony and no police force. Communal Christian sharing of goods and property permeates all aspects of their existence, while competition between individuals for a livelihood is considered to be carnal, an evil tendency inherent in a fallen society." H I S R E S E A R C H reveals a significantly healthier mentality among these people, their mental illness rate being four times lower than the national average. He also reports that adultery, promiscuity, homosexuality, murder, arson and severe assault are unknown or
rare. The results of what happens in their community are more highly preferred by me than those which are coming out of "the dynamic Christian community" of Hope College. I don't advocate the transformation of Hope into a Christian commune, however, I do advocate a corporate effort by the Christians of Hope to become more responsible for those whom Christ died for. Perhaps courses should be required that teach us how to m e e t peoples' many and varied needs.
We might understand the philosophy of Kant and the chemical composition of polyethylene, we might be able to draw and paint wondrous images, hear the clear difference between something in tune and not in tune, we may be able to speak eloquently, shoot 98 percent from the free-throw line and write stimulating columns for the school paper but if we have no love for ourselves and others, we are nothing. Let's work for something greater. Idealism is better than despair. All the lonely people need not to be.
Everything you wanted to know about employment agencies...
By Linda Joy, Executive Director - Michigan Consumers Council.,
Many people each year find jobs with the help of an employment agency, yet some find disappointment and confusion. This Consumer Comment is designed to help ease some of t h e confusion surrounding employment agencies by telling what to expect if you decide to use one. AN E M P L O Y M E N T agency acts as a liaison between an individual seeking employment and a business with job openings. When the agency fills a position, it collects a pre determined fee from either the business or the new employee. If you don't find a job through an employment agency, however, you don't have to pay a fee. If you decide to use an employment agency, carefully compare the services of several agencies before choosing one. By checking a newspaper's classified advertisements, you may be able to tell which agencies specialize in jobs which would interest you. But be leery of ads which use fancy language without describing the job or which repeatedly appear offering the same glamorous position. IF AN advertisement interests
you, call the agency to see if the position is still available or if other job listings fit your qualifications. A check with the P r i v a t e Employment Bureau of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulation would tell you how long an agency has been licensed by the state and if there have been complaints against it. The Bureau also keeps copies of current fee schedules and contracts used by employment agencies in the state. T H E A D D R E S S is P r i v a t e Employment Bureau, Department of Licensing and Regulation, 1116 South Washington, Lansing, MI 48926; telephone (517) 373-8490. Many agencies will request that you sign an application b e f o r e scheduling i n t e r v i e w s for you. Before signing the contract, make s u r e you u n d e r s t a n d w h a t t h e exact fee will be and when it must be paid. In addition, find out what your responsibilities are if, for example, you accept a job but leave after 60 days. UNDER Michigan law, if you leave a job before 60 days, the fee must not be more than 20 percent of the wages received. If you work longer, you may be responsible for the entire fee.
Most contracts will also require you to pay a fee if you accept a different job with a business than the one which was listed with the agency. EMPLOYMENT agencies charge various fees, but usually the lowest r a t e is about five percent of the gross wage for jobs paying u n d e r $5,000. In other words, generally expect a fee around $250 for a $5,000-a-year position. The fees usually increase by one percent for every $1,000 until you reach a salary level of more than $20,000. While the e m p l o y m e n t agency fee for these higher-paying positions is usually about 25 percent, the business will often pay it. IN YOUR job search, don't forget to take advantage of your college placement office. Many of these offices not only provide opportunities to interview with prospective employers, but also offer services such as counseling, seminars and job workshops. Other good sources include association directories and professional journals.
Taking our consumer's castor oil on energy by Samme Or wig Think back to the time when as a kid you were sick and would avoid taking cough syrup or castor oil--you would have rather stayed sick than have had those bitter medicines assault your tastebuds. As consumers, we are committing a similar act. The difference is that the medicine is called energy conservation and t h e illness is called energy crisis. AS most of us know, our government is no longer waiting for its citizens to voluntarily engage in energy saving programs. Naturally, this means that taxes and strict laws will be imposed on us. Both definite and indefinite ideas on ways to "help us help ourselves" have been presented by President Carter and the Federal Energy Administration. Some of these are: higher taxes on larger cars, an extreme increase in gas prices, a tax on industries that use gas and oil (as compared to coal), an increase in nuclear power plants, aid in house insulation for homeowners, and perhaps driving restrictions. THE government will make use of economic motivations in order to help us c o n s e r v e . In o t h e r words, heavy consumers, such as industries, who might use gas and oil will be taxed, while there might be a tax break for one who conserves. Thus, solar energy might pay after all. Although the energy crisis will
cost us all, the group which will be most hurt by Carter's proposals will be t h e e n v i r o n m e n t a l i s t s . Since this country's most abundant fossil fuel is coal, we will work to burn more coal than any o t h e r fuel. Thus, the b a t t l e s against strip mining will have to be forgotten. More problems will come about with the excessive air pollution which is caused by burning coal. IT MIGHT be interesting to see people wearing; gas masks just so they may walk or ride a bicycle through a city. Still, we see that Carter is more concerned about e n e r g y conservation than he is about pollution. Because of this, we may witness an entirely new lifestyle which will come about as a r e s u l t of t h e s e conservation measures. Further to the dismay of environmentalists will be an increase in the number of nuclear power plants. Yet this seems to be the Administration's only alternative. Because we have been ignoring the world's lack of energy for such a long time, it will be tough for us to conserve, but Carter is forcing us to see that we have no other choice. Perhaps with Carter's new and conservative energy program, we will be able to live without fearing that our energy supply will read "empty." So, until tms program is instituted, we might practice by shopping around for electric cars, eating raw foods, and taking cold
showers. Who knows? Someday these actions may be necessities!
An alternative to growing grass This summer for the third year there is a plot of land in Holland on which any interested person can, for a fee, plant a vegetable garden. The cost is $10 for a plot of land 25 feet by 30 feet and the use of the pump house which has a small electric motor that provides water for the gardens, but you must have your own tools. Eight to ten Hope profs have gardened with the co-operative, and along with students and other le from the Holland area have e past two years planted the crops on Memorial Day. The piece of land used was donated by a Holland citizen. This notice comes after the first public meeting of the co-operative, but anyone interested in gardening in this manner, can contact Nancy Bedell at 392-5766 for further information.

Hansberry award set for black dramatists Two original plays on the Black Experience in America, which at this moment may be drafts in a desk drawer or an idea in some students's mind, will receive the 2nd a n n u a l L o r r a i n e H a n s b e r r y Award in the spring of 1978. THE A W A R D , f u n d e d by McDonald's Corporation, honors the memory of playwright Lorraine Hansberry, the youngest author and the only black ever to r e c e i v e t h e New York D r a m a Critics' Award for Best Play of the Year.

The plays entered are judged by the regional and national judges of t h e A m e r i c a n College T h e a t r e F e s t i v a l , which, e v e r y s p r i n g , brings to Washington the year's b e s t s t u d e n t plays and product i o n s . S o m e of t h e p l a y s and authors are introduced at the John F . K e n n e d y C e n t e r for t h e Performing Arts. THE first-prize winner of the Hansberry Award will be presented by McDonald's with a check for $2,500 and t h e college t h a t produces the play will get $750. The runner-up will get $1,000 and
the school will receive $500 toward the production of the play.

Living together and personal freedom As everyone knows, unmarried couples a r e living t o g e t h e r in increasing numbers. According to t h e U.S. D e p a r t m e n t of t h e Census, t h e r e was an eightfold inc r e a s e in t h e L i v i n g - T o g e t h e r Arrangement (LTA) between 1960 and 1970. Today LTA is a national trend. But Louise Montague, who has written expensively about divorce, doesn't think LTA is such a good idea. Writing in the April issue of Reader's Digest she says: "when you demand nothing of a relationship, that's often exactly what you get." According to her, people often enter into a Living-Together Arrangement for the very reasons that they should avoid one. An unwillingness to accept responsibility is one compelling motivation for L T A , since it s k i r t s t h e obligations of marriage, but lack of responsibility frequently means that one or both partners will be hurt. A need for security is another reason put down by people who live together. But as she points o u t , t h e r e a s o n i n g is fallacious: "You have no security of anv kind. You stand a good chance of being
replaced by a younger version of y o u r s e l f . And as for f r e e r e n t , that's no security either. Security is owning the building." An LTA is particularly damaging w h e n children a r e on t h e scene, the author asserts. "What t h e m o t h e r and h e r companion view as a m a r v e l o u s , f r e e lifestyle, a child could see as a freaky embarrassment," she points out. It's a difficult situation all around, since t h e male has no real parent authority, the female sacrifices respect, and the child realizes his home doesn't conform to the norm. Nor is living together likely to be well received in the business world. In one example she cites, when a young man applied for a j o b t h e e m p l o y e r r e j e c t e d him b e c a u s e he was living w i t h a woman who was not his wife. "The firm felt that his LTA smacked of i n d e c i s i v e n e s s , i n s t a b i l i t y , and failure to accept responsibility." In h e r conclusion, M o n t a g u e says, "There are valid standards of judgment which come from confidence in yourself and your values. To accept a living pattern that goes against your better judgment is to cnip away at your personal freedom."
For all the answers to almost all the questions, don't read the books in Linderman Library. Read the walls. Graffiti, the ever popular means of public communication, must be c o n s i d e r e d one of t h e p r i m e outlets of creativity for University s t u d e n t s . T h e i r i n s p i r e d discourses on subjects from philosophy to p o r n o g r a p h y d e c o r a t e walls all o v e r c a m p u s , immortalized until t h e next wall scrubbing. "As I slide down the bannister of life, I'll always remember Lehigh as a splinter," one wall on the third floor of L i n d e r m a n prosaically proclaims. "Do you know who saved the world?" one wall asks. "Dr. Seuss did!" is the answer, along with "Capt. Kirk of Star Trek!" What is the attraction of this simplistic graffiti? Why do people feel compelled to read and write them? "I get b o r e d s t u d y i n g and r e a d i n g g r a f f i t i is a lot m o r e interesting than my work," Irene Pavels, 79, explains. "I always check out the writing before I study," Pat Petko, 78, s a y s . "If t h e r e is s o m e t h i n g interesting and I have a comment, I'll write a reply." "I love i t , " d e c l a r e s Gail Reinhart, 79. And the walls k e e p t a l k i n g . Male-female relationships are probably t h e m o s t p r o m i n e n t subjects.

"Lehigh girls are the ugliest," claims one wall. N e a r b y is t h e angry reply, "Lehigh guys are the most egotistical - talk is cheap!" Some are more creative, with such s t a t e m e n t s as, "Of c o u r s e God created man before woman. Every masterpiece needs a rough draft." "You can learn more a b o u t co-educational life at Lehigh by reading the walls than by going up t h e hill on t h e w e e k e n d , " one junior comments. And the walls keep talking. "Don't look here, the good walls are farther down ... You have just wasted 33 seconds of your entire life reading this dumb sentence. You must be perverted if you're reading this wall!" "You've got 10 seconds to think of something brilliant to write," t h e r e a d e r is told. A wall in Linderman's basement has a
Birth control in Catholic colleges: yes, no, maybe by Patty Edmonds Special to the National Catholic Reporter
Kansas City, Mo.--Nationwide, Catholic college a d m i n i s t r a t o r s realize that a significant percentage of their students are sexually a c t i v e and using b i r t h c o n t r o l . Their dilemma is what to do about it. SOME schools "shove the problem off on someone else without d e a l i n g with i t , " a s t u d e n t charged, by refusing to provide birth control information or devices. Others provide the controversial service in a low-profile manner because, student health officials say, t h e y a r e " h e r e to help people." How many Catholic college s t u d e n t s a r e sexually a c t i v e ? College administrators, student health officials and students say anywhere from 30 to 75 percent, depending on who is giving the e s t i m a t e s . Yet, in o b e d i e n c e to church decrees or deference to the m o r a l s t a n d a r d s of "old g u a r d " p a r e n t s , all b u t a few Catholic colleges in the country refuse to distribute birth control devices or information. "I'M CONFUSED about where we're supposed to be and where we a r e , " S i s t e r Marion Ruidl, director of the infirmary at the University of Notre Dame, told NCR. "In our r e g i o n .

N O T R E D A M E lays down a strict moral code for its students on all fronts, said student newspaper editor Tom O'Neil. A summer issue of the newspaper contained an advertisement for a menstrual regulation product - "not even as a contraceptive," O'Neil noted - and a f t e r t h e p a p e r was p r i n t e d , "alumni went around behind us and picked up all t h e c o p i e s , " O'Neil said. The university enforces strict parietal hours limiting the times women and men can be in each others' rooms, "and they automatically connect being in a woman's room after hours with sex," O'Neil said. 4 i O N C E a s k e d F a t h e r Hesburgh (Notre Dame president) what would happen if I was in a woman's room, with the door open, playing pinochle and d i s c u s s i n g moral theology, and I accidentally stayed five minutes after hours. And he said I'd be in violation of parietals and would have to be punished, suspended from school or kicked off campus," O'Neil said. Officials at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., are "vehemently opposed" to offering any sort of birth control or information on campus, according to Wayne S a i t t a , a s s o c i a t e e d i t o r of T h e Hoya, student newspaper. Administrators "tell us we're not allowed to give out that kind of information," Saitta said; in the past when clinic ads "not even mentioning a b o r t i o n or b i r t h c o n t r o l " h a v e appeared in student media, officials h a v e w o r k e d to g e t t h e m removed, he said. T H E d i s p e n s a r y at La Salle College, P h i l a d e l p h i a , o f f e r s no birth control devices or information; "I d o n ' t t h i n k our d o c t o r believes in that, or that the college d o e s , " said L o r r a i n e Mullin, a nurse at the student dispensary.

G r a f f i t i r e a d i n g and w r i t i n g have become so popular that two sections in Richards House recently put up paper graffiti boards in the hall bathrooms. "It gave you something to read while you were just sitting there," a freshman says. "And I learned a lot about some of these people while reading what they wrote." And the walls keep talking. "I love Farrah" is relatively new s e n t i m e n t , along with " M a r y Hartman graduated from Lehigh. That's why she's like she is." "To do is to be - Socrates. To be is to do - Plato.

Although "Disgusting" and "Gross" are typical reactions, some people say, "It's great and funny, too." "Graffiti reading may be hazardous to y o u r m e n t a l h e a l t h , " readers are warned.

anglkiir hmk pawtew Zimmer plays the poet, and more in The Zimmer poems by Kate Solms Editor's note: This review is of The Zimmer Poems, an anthology of Paul Zimmer's work published by the Dryad Press. It is available in the Hope-Geneva Bookstore. Who is Paul Zimmer? He is his own best character, that's who he is. In the anthology The Zimmer Poems, the reader can have a good look at Zimmer the poet studying, singing and celebrating Zimmer the character in a set of remarkably diverse and talented poems. ZIMMER is a character of almost legendary proportions. He faces love, death, fishing and elephants with equal aplomb. He is
the subject of such famous poems as " T h e Death of t h e Hired Zimmer," "A Zimmershire Lad," and "Zumer is Icumen In." Obviously, he is a man who not only leaps c e n t u r i e s with a single bound, but survives the landings as well. But Zimmer-the-poet never loses sight of Zimmer-thecharacter's humanity. HE IS NOT S u p e r m a n ; He wakes in the middle of the night and a s k s q u e s t i o n s of the darkness, like all of us. Zimmer is not only a poet with a fine vocabulary and a good sense of timing, he is also a man who is not a f r a i d of feelings, of r e c o r d i n g feelings, of u n d e r s t a n d i n g feel-
Helping to pay your way State Representative Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) introduced today a package of financial aid and consumer-rights legislation that would enable more students to help pay their own way through school. CHIEF AMONG the bills is a proposal for a state work study program modeled after the coopera t i v e education concept w h e r e students are employed in positions related to their career interests or academic program. "Under this bill," said Bullard, " s t u d e n t s from low and middle income families could be compensated for activities such as internships, field p l a c e m e n t s , and community volunteer service experiences which are designed to mesh t h e world of work with library and classroom studies." "A PROGRAM of this type is needed," he said, "because of the high unemployment and underemployment rates among liberal arts g r a d u a t e s and o t h e r s , and t h e feeling among employers that preg r a d u a t i o n c a r e e r r e l a t e d work e x p e r i e n c e is t h e single most attractive credential a graduate can offer a prospective employer." Bullard said that work experience r a t e s higher t h a n even grades and class ranking, and that at least seven other states have
successfully operating work study programs.

College costs up 4% The total costs of attending all types of colleges in America will go up an average four percent in t h e 1977-78 academic y e a r , an annual s u r v e y by t h e College Scholarship Service showed this weÂŤk. CSS, a part of the College E n t r a n c e E x a m i n a t i o n Board, reported that attending a private f o u r - y e a r college could cost an average $4,905 for students living away from home, although total costs at some private colleges will be more than $7,500. At public four-year colleges total costs will be $3,005 for i n - s t a t e s t u d e n t s living away from home. The survey found little or no changes in the average tuition and fees reported by public four-year colleges last y e a r ($621), but tuition and fees a t f o u r - y e a r private colleges are expected to rise 6.3 percent. Total costs as reported in the survey include tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, transportation and personal expenses. Increases in average total costs between 1976-77 and 1977-78 at different types of colleges range f r o m 1.6 p e r c e n t ($38) for commuter students at public fouryear colleges to 5.2 percent ($242) for resident students at private four-year coUeges. Residents at public four-year coUeges will pay an average $3,005 next year, up four percent over 1976-77 costs; commuters at private four-year colleges will pay $4,331, a 4.6 percent increase. Even though tuition and fees a t public f o u r - y e a r colleges a r e stable, the survey found, all other c o s t s will go up in 1977-78 an a v e r a g e 5.1 p e r c e n t ($115) for resident students to $2,285, and 2.1 percent ($38) for commuters to $1,865. At public four-year colleges, tuition and fees account for 21 percent of the total budget for resident students, while room and
board ($1,450 in 1977-78) account for 48 percent of the total. Tuition and fees at p r i v a t e four-year colleges will go up 6.3 percent ($147), bringing the average tuition and fees to $2,476 in 1977-78. Costs other than tuition and f e e s at p r i v a t e four-year colleges will increase 4.1 percent ($95) to $2,429 for r e s i d e n t students and 2.4 percent ($43) to $1,855 for commuters. At private four-year colleges, tuition and fees account for more than 50 percent of the total cost, while room and board constitutes 20 percent of the total for s t u d e n t s who live at home, and 30 p e r c e n t for resid e n t s . Of t h e p r i v a t e four-year colleges in the survey, about 25 percent reported tuition and fees above $3,490 for next year, and 25 percent reported tuition and fees of $1,840 or less. Total college cost inc r e a se s b e t w e e n t h e 1970-71 academic year (the first year the survey was taken) and 1977-78 range from 62 percent for commuter students at f o u r - y e a r public colleges (from $1,531 to $2,486) to 101 percent for commuters at two-year private colleges (from $1,834 to $3,680). For resident students in the same period, costs have i n c r e a s e d 69 )ercent a t f o u r - y e a r public coleges (from $1,783 to $3,005), 73 percent at two-year private colleges (from $2,380 to $4,113), and 65 percent at four-year private colleges (from $2,974 to $4,905). CSS said comparable data are not available for t w o - y e a r public colleges. The survey found that the most e x p e n s i v e colleges a r e in t h e Middle States region. New England region, and the West. The lowest t o t a l cost a v e r a g e s for public colleges are in the Southern region. Total costs at p r i v a t e colleges are lowest in the Southwest.
in^s. Never for a moment do we lose sight of Zimmer to admire a nice phrase or a good title. Zimmer, and Z i m m e r ' s p e r s o n a l i t y , a r e there every minute. The reader finished the book with a knowledge that he will never finish with Zimmer - Zimmer is a personality beyond the fifty-eight pages. THE POET is more diversified than I think many people who have h e a r d his poems may realize. Many of Zimmer's poems are humorous; they are playful and exuberant. And the freshness and joy of this poet's approach is woven into all of his work. But Paul Zimmer is not a man of unceasing smiles; he has a serious side too. One or the other would have been enough to e a r n him a reputation of no little distinction. Both together - the serious and the comic - prove that Zimmer is not limited too, or satisfied with, one approach only. The reader must not suppose that just because this set of poems are all about the same character that Zimmer can only do one thing well. ZIMMER'S p a r o d i e s of other poets are exact and funny. His imitation Blake ("Zimmer, who m a d e y o u ? / D o you know who made you?") is good, and his Whitman ("You Zimmer! Whimpering, heavy, mumbling, lewd;/ Does America sing you a sad song?") is even better. But the poet that he has bagged from the
greatest success in these parodies is Robert Frost. " T h e Death of the -Hired Zimmer" is full of Frost details: 44 'She sat watching the moth at the candle", 44 'You sit and watch the moon slide/Through that patch of clouds' ", "He went,/Came back, too soon, it seemed to her ..." I think that Frost would have been satisfied with t h e style. Ogden Nash would have loved the punchline. ZIMMER WRITES well also about his childhood; an existence filled with t h e Catholic church, guilt, and wonder. Here the detail is also precise, and the emotions carefully and beautifully delineated: "The first Sunday I missed Mass on purpose/I waited all day for Christ to climb down/Like a wiry flyweight from t h e cross a n d / C l u b me on my i r r e v e r a n t t e e t h . . . " " F a t h e r Animus asked who b r o k e / T h e window in the s a c r i s t y , / ! went head-on into e v i l / L y i n g t h r o u g h my new incisors." 44 'Fix and fix, you're all better,'/I would say/To the neighborhood wounded/As we fought the world war/Through the vacant lots of Ohio..." Here is a good memory, and a lunchbox full of elementary-school feelings, undoctored by the adult. This is Zimmer the child speaking. He is a direct child, sensitive and honest. BUT NO MORE so than Zimmer the adult, a man who still retains a child-like h o n e s t y in facing a
battalion of difficult, painful, or ecstatic experiences. He is often forced to look at his "peculiar emptiness: "Everything is plumb and solid in the night,/The corners of lamplight fastening things down,/ Wherever I move the darkness moves,/Because I have become my own shadow." He sees people who he dislikes, and fears: "Their faces are like fine watches/Insinuating jewels./Their movements can buy or sell you./When the legs of the g e n t r y dance for c h a r i t y , / M e a t splashes in the soups of the poor." BUT THERE are also days or moments of joy. Zimmer wisely does not consider them rewards for the times of suffering, and that is his most admirable quality. Joy is not a gift, a rarity - it is only the r e v e r s e side of t h e pain; both together are a unity. When he writes "I feel my cells divide in fragile ecstacy," he is feeling and understanding fully. But he is also feeling and understanding when he is rejected, or has his face bashed in by the town bully. This whole-view vision gives his poetry a lovely sanity. In a decade when it is fashionable to be a neurotic poet, Paul Zimmer is plodding the path of h e a l t h , facing things with a b r a v e r y and a humor t h a t produces good poetry. This anthology will give you Zimmer - and whether he is laughing at himself, over-reacting, crying, or celebrating, he is a person you will not regret knowing.
Don't hit a senior, says Hertel Legislation was introduced in the Michigan State Senate, March 31, to provide mandatory sentences for anyone convicted of c o m m i t t i n g a crime of violence against a person 55 years of age or older. The sponsor of the bill Senator John C. Hertel (D-Harper Woods) said the reason he introduced the bill was the alarming increase in the number of crimes committed against senior citizens. Hertel said "Over the past three
Congress ok's Carter re-organization Congress has given President Carter the authority he requested to reorganize Federal agencies. By a vote of 395-22 the House passed a reorganization authorization March 29 and the Senate accepted the House changes in its previously passed bill (S 626) March 31, thus sending the measure to xhe White House. The bill restores for three years Presidential authority to submit to Congress reorganization plans which would take effect automatically unless e i t h e r t h e House or S e n a t e v e t o e d t h e m within 60 days. Since 1932 C o n g r e s s has given P r e s i d e n t s similar reorganization authority from time to time. The last authorization expired in 1973. The legislation p e r m i t s t h e President to transfer, consolidate or abolish all or parts of federal agencies or their functions, but would not allow the abolition of s t a t u t o r y p r o g r a m s or enforcement functions. Also, it would not permit a reorganization plan to c r e a t e , abolish or t r a n s f e r a Cabinet department or to abolish or transfer an independent regulatory agency. The bill would p e r m i t t h e President to amend a reorganization plan within 30 days after it was first submitted, but Congress could not make any amendments to the plan. No more than three reorganization plans could be pending before Congress at any one time. Each plan would be required to contain an e s t i m a t e ol any savings or increased costs it is likely to p r o d u c e . To i n s u r e t h a t Congress has an opportunity to vote on each plan, the bill provides that if the appropriate House and Senate committees make no move to disapprove the plan within 45 days, tnen any member of either chamber can bring up a motion of disapproval.
years senior citizens have been victims of more violent crimes per capita than any other age group in our society. They a r e also victimized at a high rate by fraudulent schemes and con games." Hertel's bill, if passed, would set a mandatory sentence of 5 years for anyone convicted of committing any violent act against anyone over the age of 55. This sentence could not be suspended by a judge and would have to be served in addition to the sentence for the crime itself. Hertel pointed to the fact that
two other large industrial states, New York and California, have enacted similar legislation that gives stiff penalties for crimes against seniors. The California S t a t e Supreme Court has already upheld the constitutionality of the statute. Hertel added "Just think of the number of seniors who have been attacked in their own homes recently. The least we can do, as a society, is to protect those older people who have been hard working law abiding citizens all their lives and who now deserve some comfort and security."

Ritual" work selected for WMU festival
A new work created in the Hope dance program was recently selected as one of seven works to a p p e a r in the concert of the American College Dance Festival for the midwestern region on May 1 at Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo. THE WORK, entitled "Ritual", was one of 21 pieces entered by 11 midwest universities and colleges for adjudication. The work was inspired by the "Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta" by Bela Bartok. The work was choreotrraphed bv Hooe laculty m e m b e r s Ed Riffel and Rich Rahn. AMONG THE judicators were
Martha Hill, head of the dance dep a r t m e n t at Juilliard School in New York, and William Christenson, a r t i s t i c d i r e c t o r for Ballet West in Salt Lake City, Utah. Miss Hill's review of the work said: "The choreographic conception of the whole seems to me admirable - there's suspense, drama, everything. I'm enthusiastic about this." S T U D E N T S WHO p r e s e n t e d the work included Sue Etterbeek, a junior from Holland; Bill Lawson, a sophomore from Allegan; Laurie Daniels, a senior from Holland; John Lindower, a junior from Holland; Diane Mancinelli, a f r e s h m a n from Holland; J o d y
Mutschler, a junior from Fairport, N.Y.; Julie Raabe, a junior from Flushing; Carol V a n d e n b e r g , a junior from Grand Rapids; Deborah Hibma, a sophomore from Byron C e n t e r ; Conley Zomermaand, a senior from Holland; Jim Pancy, a sophomore from North Muskegon; Mike Rice, a junior from Detroit; Karen Sterk, a 1976 Hope g r a d u a t e from W a u p u n , Wis.; Lois McConnell, a junior from New Canaan, CT; and Lisa Huebner, a freshman from Park Ridge, 111.

which is run by the Sisters of Notre Dame, nurse Pat Quinn said that "very few women come to the infirmary for birth control information or methods - most of them got that elsewhere. A lot of the women who come in with gynecological problems are already on birth control methods." THE U n i v e r s i t y of P o r t l a n d , Ore., formerly run by the Holy Cross fathers is classified as independent, "but if you go to school here, you consider it a Catholic u n i v e r s i t y , " said Sharon Van Sickle, e d i t o r of the s t u d e n t newspaper. The student infirmary will prescribe birth control methods, she said, "although it is not one of their m a j o r s e r v i c e s or publicized as such. And I'm sure there are some on campus who would rather it wasn't provided, but I don't think many of the priests have stirred themselves to complain about it." VERN A. Chatfield, director of s t u d e n t health s e r v i c e s at t h e University of Portland, said the university is "aware of what we do, and nothing has been said to me. There is a tendency here to leave people to their own decisions about what they're going to do with their lives," she said. Chatfield said the school definitely has not "lost its Catholic flavor," and she is conscious of her employers' beliefs, "but we're here to take care of people, and we do what we can - I've been told nothing about what we can and cannot prescribe." LORETTO Heights College in Denver, Colo., has been independent and coeducational for about eight y e a r s . Its health s e r v i c e provides birth control information and its doctor p r e s c r i b e s b i r t h control m e t h o d s , including " t h e pill," which t h e health s e r v i c e s clinic distributes, reported dean of students Richard J. Fortin. Fortin could not estimate what p e r c e n t a g e of t h e 844 s t u d e n t s (four women to one man, 65 percent Catholic) were sexually active: "There's a lot of talk, and a certain number of the students get on birth control as a status thing; it allows them to join in a conversation."
(continued from page 7)
and the doctor for the most part," Fortin said. He said he feels most young Catholics "don't even care" about church bans on contraception, and says he is more worried about "abortion becoming a mode of birth control" than about the birth control m e t h o d s young people are adopting. "We try to keep a low profile on our birth control services," Fortin said, " b e c a u s e t h e r e a r e some parents who would get very upset at the idea." A DOCTOR at another university predicted, "There will always be militant old-guard parents and administrators that want the old mass and no birth control." To satisfy that "old guard," he said, his school sends s t u d e n t s elsewhere for birth control. Niagara University, New York, run by the Vincentiah order, is one of the few schools in the nation which permits no student visitation in the opposite sex's dorms, "and most of the people you talk to a r e involved in t a k i n g the university to court over visitation rights." reported a Niagara student. PAUL Leonard, student government c o r r e s p o n d i n g s e c r e t a r y , said t h e local American Civil Liberties Union chapter is backing several suits against the university's p a r i e t a l s policy: " S t u d e n t s c a u g h t a n y w h e r e in buildings designated for the opposite sex are suspended from a week of school and must move off c a m p u s , " Leonard said. Every effort is made to keep birth control information off the campus. Leonard recalled a 1974 student health fair at which senior nursing students-set up a booth dealing with birth control, "and administrators came and physically moved it out." Planned Parenthood has a clinic about two miles f r o m campus, Leonard said, and officials tnere have told him that the majority of women coming to the clinic from Niagara University "come in for pregnancy tests, scared to death, because previously they haven't been i n f o r m e d a b o u t birth control."

Corporate gifts to educate up America's corporate community i n c r e a s e d its g i v i n g to h i g h e r education from $445 million in 1974 t o $450 million in 1975, a new all-time high. THE 1% increase was the fifth consecutive annual rise in corpora t e g i v i n g to h i g h e r e d u c a t i o n since the recession of 1969-70 and was achieved in the face of a drop in corporate profits in 1975 of more than 10%, according to a survey report, CORPORATE SUPPORT OF HIGHER EDUCATION 1975, published this week by the Council for F i n a n c i a l Aid to E d u c a t i o n (CFAE). The rise in giving despite the drop in profits was made possible by the fact that many corporations give both directly as corporations, and indirectly, through corporatesponsored foundations, the CFAE report explains. Direct corporate giving normally drops when corporate profits fall. HOWEVER, c o r p o r a t e - s p o n s o r e d f o u n d a t i o n s a r e able t o

In 1975, for e x a m p l e , corporate foundations paid out $55 million more than they received from their sponsoring companies. In 1974, they paid out only about as much as they received. Aid to education, as a percentage of pretax net income, rose from 0.35% in 1974 to 0.39% in 1975, which level was only slightly less t h a n t h e 0 . 4 1 % a v e r a g e during the period 1963-72. This rise in percentage was due to the fact that giving rose slightly while profits fell precipitously. Educational support as a percentage of total corporate giving also went up, from 35.6% in 1974 to 38.3% in 1975. AMONG t h e m a r k e t i n g a r e a s from which five or more corporations reported their contributions, P i t t s b u r g h , Des Moines and Cleveland ranked first, second and third in percentage of pretax net income given to higher education.

Two G r a n d R a p i d s a t t o r n e y s w e r e on c a m p u s to a n s w e r questions about the rights of the individual when d e a l i n g with police officers. The question and a n s w e r period, a l t h o u g h a d v e r tised as a discussion on dealings with the police, covered a wide range of topics. The event was sponsored by the Western Michigan Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The two attorneys were Rhett Pinsky and Dennis Kolenda. Many of the students' questions involved the use of marijuana or other controlled substances. One student asked how a person could be p r o t e c t e d when e v i d e n c e against him was illegally obtained. "Under the exclusionary rule, if you can prove that the police acted i m p r o p e r l y , then t h e e v i d e n c e o b t a i n e d i m p r o p e r l y will be e x c l u d e d , " Kolenda e x p l a i n e d . "The way it looks now, though, the exclusionary rule will probably be struck down on June 15, as the Supreme Court is expected to rule against its use in a case that they are now deliberating. The possession of contraband in an automobile was discussed at length. "The police don't need a search warrant to search a car if they believe that a crime is being, or has been c o m m i t t e d in t h a t automobile. In that instance, the police have every legal right to search the car," said Kolenda. What about the police officer who s t o p s you for a t r a f f i c violation and sticks his head halfway into the car? "If he sticks his head in the car and looks around, and sees something illegal, then he has c o n d u c t e d a s e a r c h , " said Pinsky. "But then it becomes a question of fact -- how far did he
stick his head in?" Kolenda added, "If it is at night, and the officer shines a light through the car, the courts have ruled that this is not a search, that the officer is merely providing artificial sunlight." S e v e r a l s t u d e n t s posed questions regarding the use of force to protect one's property. "The law says that if someone is threatening you, you should r e t r e a t until r e t r e a t is no l o n g e r possible," Pinsky explained, "If there is an intruder in your home, and you believe that he is going to harm you, then you may use all the force necessary to repel the attack. This does not mean that you can shoot someone who is running out of your house. If there is no longer any chance of that person harming you, then you could be charged with the use of excessive force." One student asked about being arrested for drunk driving. "If you are given the chance to take the breathilizer test, take it. If you don't you will automatically lose your driver's license for 90 days," Pinsky said. "If you have a fairly good driving and no previous arrests g e n e r a l l y t h e c h a r g e will be reduced to visibly impaired, which is a $100 fine and four points on your record," he added. The pair offered some important advice to anyone who is arrested. " I t is d a n g e r o u s t o act on the assumption that the police have no case against you and that you will be released. It is extremely crucial that you get a lawyer, no matter what the circumstances," Pinsky said, " U n t i l such t i m e as your l a w y e r is p r e s e n t , m a k e no statements to the police."

in profits. BANKING companies and those in t h e m a c h i n e r y i n d u s t r y also r e p o r t e d i n c r e a s e s in aid to education of more than 10% but these industries had increases in profits. The number one industry, as for several years past, was textiles, which gave 0.64% of pretax net income to higher education, nearly three and one-half times the average of all companies reporting. T h e r e w e r e few s i g n i f i c a n t changes in the ways corporations distributed their giving to higher education by purpose. Funds contributed through employee giftm a t c h i n g p r o g r a m s showed t h e largest increase, nearly 1.5%. COMPANIES known to have such programs grew from about 500 in 1972 to a b o u t 625 in mid-1976, and many c o m p a n i e s
have gone to multiple matching -1.5-to-l; 2-to-l and 3-to-l -- so the increase may be due more to these factors than to larger individual gifts. At 10% of total corporate g i v i n g r e p o r t e d by some 786 companies, gift-matching reached a record high. Data for this report are taken from a joint survey of corporate c o n t r i b u t i o n s made a n n u a l l y by the Council for Financial Aid to Education (CFAE) and The Conf e r e n c e Board.
