Democratic Gubernatorial Hopeful Speaks to Students, Professors J&s Barbara Freggens Labeled the " a r c h i t e c t of v i c t o r y " for the D e m o c r a t i c P a r t y of Michigan, Mr. Neil Staebler, Congressman-at-large for the state of Michigan, and D e m o c r a t i c candidate for Governor visited the c a m p u s Saturday. Speaking to a group of s t u d e n t s and professors on S a t u r d a y afternoon, Staebler discussed national issues. He feels that with t h e recent tax out p a s s e d by Congress our economic growth can move even f a s t e r than in past y e a r s . T h e r e ape lots of tools with which to work, e m p h a s i z e d Congressm a n Staebler and there is an especially big challenge surrounding ihe issues of education, jobs and civil rights. In reply to a question about the r e c e n t proposed raise in pay for m e m b e r s of Congress, Staebler answered, "I can speak very objectively on this question, since 1 won't be in Congress next y e a r . " This in t u r n brought applause f r o m the m e m b e r s of the audience who

support his c a n d i d a c y for governor. Congressmen always w nt to be on the s a m e level of authority as t h e people with whom they h a v e to c o m m u n i c a t e and they find this h a r d with a lower pay s c a l e . Howe v e r , Staebler doesn't think it in good taste to r a i s e their pay in the imiddle of a t e r m . Speaking on the much debated seniority system of Congress, S t a e b l e r stated t h a t t h e r e a r e two possible ways to r e f o r m the syst e m in the House of R e p r e s e n t a t i ves. The first method of r e f o r m could be done within Congress with the adoption of a "Twenty-One Day Rule' and a r e f o r m of the comm i t t e e c h a i r m a n s y s t e m . T h e othe r way is by f a r the most effecti v e , " said Staebler. " T h i s is through the people. Anyone can e f f e c t Congress by getting active politically," e m p h a s i z e d the Congressman. L a t e r in the evening a dinner w a s held in Phelps Hall for Staebler with a p p r o x i m a t e l y 280 Demo c r a t s attending.

" I n writing, w h a t ' s i m p o r t a n t a r e the little things. It doesn't do any good to write with big ideas —it's the little coherences that count." However, Stafford continued, " a work lives and is coherent by virtue of consistencies. I don't believe that a r t is c h a o t i c . " " P o e t r y doesn't h a v e to r h y m e . . . but it should c h i m e . " Stafford explained that a poet t r i e s to weave in sounds, a s does a prose writer. In one poem he closes with the words "God k n o w s .

"This, to me, is trivial in a field w h e r e there a r e so m a n y kinds of h a z a r d s . I believe people ought to be reckless.

In r e g a r d to the poets of today, Stafford p r e f e r s m e n such as Phillip Larkin, Robert Penn W a r r e n . "All the people I know who a r e writing poetry look at that published now with bleakness. The best can be found in English courses, of c o u r s e ! " Stafford felt it obvious t h a t a poet m a y not communicate. "You take the s a m e danger as telling d r e a m s . Some F r e u d i a n m a y come along and say ' a h a ! ' " A poet is totally responsible for what he says, and yet t h e r e ' s a wonderful f r e e d o m . We're all in it together. The language and our experience just snow all of the time.

by John Mulder ("The Blood of the Lamb" is a novel by Peter De Vries. It is published in paperback by Signet Books.

ing? Then He is malevolent. Is He both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is He neither able nor willing? Then why call Him Deity?"

'MISSA EGLISIA' — Robert Werge and Katherine Lenel portray two characters in Jennifer MeGilvray's much traveled pantomime.

McGilvray's Play To Continue Tour With Stops at Kalamazoo, Olivet "Missa E g l i s i a " (formerly titled ' This Way O u t " ) , a religious drama by sophomore J e n n i f e r Mc Gilvray will be presented this weekend by its Hope cast as p a r t of Olivet College's Fine Arts Festival, at the invitation of Bill Beard, director of t h e a t r e at Olivet. Cast m e m b e r s Alan Jones, Donald Kardux, Katherine Lenel, Carole Timkovich, Kathleen Verduin and Robert Werge, a c c o m p a n i e d by David K a r s t e n , Hope director of t h e a t r e .

College for a Sunday afternoon p e r f o r m a n c e at the request of the Kalamazoo c o m m i t t e e on s t u d e n t religious activities. A semi-liturgical p a n t o m i m e in a musical setting, "Missa Eglis i a " was originally p r e s e n t e d in the Hope Little T h e a t r e Dec. 15. P e r f o r m a n c e s followed at Hope Church in Holland, St. M a r y ' s College, Notre D a m e , Ind., and at Episcopal c h u r c h e s in St. Joseph and Saugatuck.

evil in the world. Known previously for his brilliant, satirical sketches of American life, P e t e r De Vries in " T h e Blood of the L a m b " w e a v e s his wit into a story which deals with this s a m e conflict. The age-old struggle is personalized in the c h a r a c t e r of Don Wanderhope, a m a n wanting to be religious but finding he cannot. Satire F o r De Vries this novel w a s a distinct turn-about in his literary a t t e m p t s . He has never been directly serious, but instead exposed the foibles of life by being, as he puts it, " t h e filter between life as it a p p e a r s and life as it i s . " E v e n in " T h e Blood of the L a m b , " De Vries does not lose his sarcastic wit and sense of s a t i r e . He describes his or r a t h e r Don W a n d e r h o p e ' s life (the two bec o m e fused) in the restrictive atm o s p h e r e of the Dutch c o m m u n i t y n e a r Chicago. He tells of a neighbor and her reaction to one chaotic s c e n e in the Wanderhope home. "A neighbor addicted to opening the Bible at random for guidance in times of stress took o u r s f r o m the shelf and read aloud into the din. 'Moab is m y washpot; over E d o m will I cast out my shoe . . . " He tells of Don's f a t h e r who in his doubt refused to accept God until Don contracted tuberculosis. A R e f o r m e d Church s a n i t a r i u m in Colorado w a s the only r e m e d y financially. T h u s in a m o m e n t of divine inspiration his "historic decision for Christ" was m a d e and everyone gathered around to sing " B r i n g i n g in the S h e a v e s . " By far De Vries' power in describing the ridiculous r e a c h e s its high point in the description of Wanderhope and his f a t h e r dumping g a r b a g e from their " S a n i t a r y Sanitation" truck. The two and the truck slipped into the pit f r o m which Wanderhope's f a t h e r c a m e to the s u r f a c e periodically declaring "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, f r o m whence cometh m y

Behold - The Beetles by Donald Kardux

I sat and, as it began to speak, I realized that the voice s e e m e d to be caming f r o m under a dead b ra n c h . This is what the voice s a i d : " O n c e upon a t i m e in the Land of the Mitten lived a group of Beetles. They lived by a g r e a t sea which almost surrounded this l a n d of the Mitten. These beetles w e r e direct descendants of a n o t h e r group of beetles who c a m e f r o m the land of the high wet wall m a n y years ago. The r e a s o n for their leaving the land of the high wet wall is not clear, b u t s o m e say it had to do with a boy who pulled his finger out of the wall b e c a u s e it w a s cold, wet and stiff. (I assumed he m e a n t the finger.) The beetles in this new L a n d of the Mitten did not Sing as other beetles do today. They did not s m i l e or laugh but waiked around with long s a d faces which soon g a v e t h e m a reputation of being unpleasant, unhappy and almost un—everything. Some say t h a t t h e reason for this s t a t e of a f f a i r s w a s b e c a u s e of t h e i r belief t h a t t h e sky might fall any m o m e n t and crush them all. At any r a t e like m a n y beetles of the world t h e y celebrated e v e r y spring. This celebration c e n t e r e d around a color-

Boyhood Two-thirds of the entire book a r e devoted to W a n d e r h o p e ' s narr a t i v e of his boyhood, his d a y s at the University of Chicago, his loves, his m a r r i a g e and finally the birth of his d a u g h t e r . All t h a t is significant for the m e a t of the book is that his skepticism was founded in his f a t h e r , a brother who died in college and his relationship with a girl who died a f t e r he b e c a m e deeply in love with her. All the anecdotes, all the witty tongue-in-cheek accounts of Wanderhopes's previous life tell us nothing pertinent of the real plot except that Don Wanderhope w a s a m a n who s u f f e r e d and found that because of his suffering he could not accept God as one who is good and just. The first two-thirds of the book are, a s Granville Hicks said, " a l m o s t totally i r r e l e v a n t . " The last third of the book deals w th Wanderhope and his beautiful, charming, intelligent d a u g h t e r for whom he lives and devotes his life. The d a u g h t e r is stricken with leukemia and out of this comes Wanderhope's confrontation with evil, seemingly u n j u s t suffering and God. In his trips to the clinic with his d a u g h t e r , Don m e e t s a Jewish m a n in the s a m e position as he who declares, " W h a t b a f f l e s m e is the comfort people f : nd in this idea that someone dealt this mess. Blind and m e a n i n g l e s s c h a n c e s e e m s so much m o r e congenial — at least less horrible. P r o v e to m e that there is a God and I will really begin to d e s p a i r . " Don Wanderhope, however, cannot be this h a r d and constantly seeks out the consolation of religion. De Vries' resolution of his struggle a f t e r the d e a f h of his d a u g h t e r is that Wanderhope believes in m a n and by showing this De Vries hopes to show he believes in something m o r e .

Sensitivity P e t e r De Vries tells this all with sensitivity. In r e a d i n g of Wanderhope's struggle, o n e ' s h e a r t cries and laughs with a b a n d o n m e n t . The story is told sensitively, but it is not s h e e r sentiment. The r e a d e r ' s sense of De Vries' closeness to the plot is not without justification because his own d a u g h t e r died of leukemia just as Carol Wanderhope did. It is out of this experience that he writes — movingly, meaningfully and with dignity. However, as I h a v e hinted before, De Vries' novel is not perfect — no, far f r o m it. T r y as I did, I could not get rid of the bad t a s t e in my mouth f r o m the anecdotal n a t u r e of the first part of the book. The book, though subtly unified, has no intrinsic unification. De Vries, both in his organization and his style, h a s somewhat of a " b u c k s h o t " approach. His events a r e seemingly disconnected and his words s e e m to be thrown out with little concern for choosing the best words in a given passage. His style s e e m s to b e too much like t h a t of a high school senior, impressed with an enlarged voc a b u l a r y and out to play with words. Even the conclusion s e e m e d , if not unified, at le^st improbable. De Vries connects t h e plot in such a way a s to lead Wanderhooe's a f f i r m a t i o n of m a n , but somehow is just does not rin^ true. Winderhope was not a m a n content with easy a n s w e r s and the sudden resolution is a little phony. In spite of all t h e s e faults, the lack of unity, his style, the improbable conclusion. De Vries speaks to us as h u m a n b e i n g s seeking as Donald Wanderhope to reconcile ourselves to a world of conflict— a world w h e r e God is just and good but w h e r e little girls die of leuk e m i a and " t h e wicked p r o s p e r . " Any novelist who c a n e x p r e s s the depth of h u m a n h e a r t ' s grief as well as De Vries d e s e r v e s praise.

Man Faces Death, Sees Beauty of Life

The Sand Piper

It happened while I was walking through the pine grove on a r a i n y ni.ght. Someone -called out m y name. "Hey, y o u ! " Not seeing anyone around, I immediately anticipated the next rem a r k and defiantly a s s e r t e d m y rights as an individual. " I t is no one's business but m y own whether I brush a f t e r e v e r y m e a l or w h a t tooth p a s t e I u s e . " T h e r e was a long pause and t h e n the voice r a n g out again. " I was going to ask who you were, but judging f r o m the stupid reply I a s s u m e you a r e the one who calls himself the " S a n d p i p e r . " I a m never one to quibbie over connotative m e a n i n g s of words, if the general f a c t s a r e c l e a r ; t h e r e fore, I replied, " I a m he, of w h o m you s p e a k . " " I s it t r u e t h a t you h a v e given up the s e a r c h for ultimate t r u t h s ? " the voice asked. " Y e s , " I replied, " I h a v e fjlven up such foolishness and a m now looking for interesting bits and s n a t c h e s of life to p r e s e n t to m y readers." "Sit down in t h e d a m p g r a s s , for I have something to o f f e r , " the voice said.

h e l p " or intoning the Doxology and " w e a r i n g , like a beret, one half a cantaloupe r i n d . "

ful f r a g r a n t p l a n t which they believed blossomed every spring if the sky was not to fall on them. Seeing the b i r t h of this p l a n t as a t e m p o r a r y t i m e of s a f e t y , the beetles held a celebration in which they p a r t i c i p a t e d in activities that they n e v e r allowed t h e m s e l v e s (or others) to indulge in during the r e s t of the y e a r . They smiled, the> laughed, and they even danced in the s t r e e t s , (although mixed dancing was not allowed.) At first this cexebration was genuine. The beetles were really happy and they celebrated for their own e n j o y m e n t . However, a s the > e a r s passed, other beetles f r o m surrounding towns c a m e and watched t h e m c e l e b r a t e . Soon, they w e r e celebrating just to b e watched and w e r e n ' t having f u n anymore. Now they still smile but it is a forced smile; they laugh b u t it is a hollow laugh and d a n c e but it is a d a n c e without j o y . " " T h a t is a v e r y sad s t o r y , " I r e m a r k e d , " W h a t a r e you going to do about i t ? " " N o t h i n g , " the voice replied. "1 c a n ' t be bothered with beetles — t h e y ' r e coleoptera ~ m y speciality is s t a g m o m a t i s Carolina."

The film stars Takishi Shimira, and is directed by Akira Kurosawa.) Kanji Watanabi c o m e s to t e r m s with two truths in the film " I k i r u . " " L i f e is beautiful only when m a n comes face to f a c e with d e a t h . " " T h e lust for life is a v i r t u e . " A f t e r thirty y e a r s of w o r k and boredom, and s p i r i t u a l dying, the x - r a y s reveal a m a l i g n a n t c a n c e r and the i m m i n e n t physical d e a t h of Mr. Watanabi, the Chief of the Citizens Section of t h e ( u n n a m e d ) city g o v e r n m e n t . The story then d e a l s with the w a y s in which he seeks to m a k e m e a n i n g f u l t h e last six months of his life. Ironically, yet f a i t h f u l to the h u m a n condition it s e e m s , his first reaction is to self-indulgence which he knows to b e suicidal. With the young novelist who has the words but not the m a t u r i t y to m a t c h t h e m , he b e c o m e s caught up in the r h y t h m s , the blaring b r a s s e s and the shouts and laughte r of a never-was p a s t . Still life r u s h e s around and p a s t him. He next t u r n s to the young girl f r o m his office whose vitality and health severely c o n t r a s t his despair and decay. She is able to account for his son, M i t s u o ' s misunderstanding and lack of appreciation for the s a c r i f i c e of the f a t h e r ' s life. Somehow it s e e m s in the n a t u r e of t h e r a c e t h a t the f a t h e r give up his life for the son who b e c a u s e he cannot comprehend, does not a p p r e c i a t e , until p e r h a p s he b e c o m e s t h e f a t h e r . Salvation Watanabi, like a drowning m a n , is struggling for s o m e t h i n g to hold on to, but he r e a l i z e s t h a t it is not the youth or h e a l t h of which

the girl is an i m a g e . R a t h e r , his salvation is achieved by finding in his work a m e a n s of b e t t e r i n g his fellows' condition, by converting an infested s w a m p into a m o r e sanitary p a r k . Not, however, by faith in the Lord J e s u s Christ. The final reel of the film, in the setting of a 'kazoku' (or kind of m e m o r i a l service) r a i s e s a serious p r o b l e m . After a t t e m p t i n g to det e r m i n e w h a t the driving f o r c e of W a t a n a b i ' s zeal w a s in creating the park, his a s s e m b l e d associates conclude that it was his knowledge of his coming d e a t h . As their emotions a r e s t i m u l a t e d they decide that " c o m p a r e d to W a t a n a b i we a r e m e r e l y h u m a n t r a s h . " And with s a k e - soaked brains they p.edge not to let his d e a t h have been in vain. But when the fog has c l e a r e d and their Section is r e q u e s t e d to m e e t a n o t h e r h u m a n need, a sewer - flooded playground, they a r e immobile. Interpretation On the one hand, t h e film s e e m s to r e e m p h a s i z e t h e d e p r a v i t y , the frailty, the hypocrisy of m a n . This to s o m e would be a n a g r e e a b l e if not wholly valid interpretation. But it would w e a k e n the validity of the work as significant a r t . I should like to posit, on the other h a n d , an a d d e d interpretation. On this view the film is . sserting t h a t devoid of an existential confrontation with the f a c t of death there is no m e a n i n g f u l involvem e n t in life. Only with a real a w a r e n e s s of death is t h e r e a lust for life. T h e validity of the film as a r t rests in the implimentation of this a w a r e n e s of t h e universality and i m m i n e n c e of d e a t h .

Senators and The Poll S e n a t o r L a r r y H a v e r k a m p r e v e a l e d to t h e Student S e n a t e T u e s d a y the long a w a i t e d results of the poll on s t u d e n t opinion on the college drinking regulations. The s u r v e y of b o a r d i n g s t u d e n t s showed that of the 274 m e n polled, 243 (89%) thought t h a t " H o p e s t u d e n t s over 21 should be given the individual responsibility to d e c i d e w h e t h e r or not they should d r i n k . " Of the 340 w o m e n polled, 278 (83%) held the s a m e opinion. This m e a n s t h a t 85% of t h e 614 s t u d e n t s polled felt t h a t the p r e s e n t college r u l e prohibiting such individual decision should be changed. Is the poll valid? Yes. M o r e t h a n 600 stud e n t s polled out of a s t u d e n t body of approxim a t e l y 1600 is certainly a l a r g e enough perc e n t a g e to gain a valid view of s t u d e n t opinion. T h e q u e s t i o n s asked w e r e s h o r t and " n e u t r a l ; " they did not lead the s t u d e n t s to a n s w e r in a given w a y . And the o v e r w h e l m i n g m a j o r i t y of s t u d e n t s polled in f a v o r of 3 c h a n g e m u s t indi c a t e t h a t even a c o m p l e t e polling of all s t u d e n t s would not r e v e r s e t h e m a j o r i t y opinion or d r a s tically r e d u c e the p e r c e n t a g e of s t u d e n t s favoring a r u l e change.
