Dr. Dennis Voskuil speaks with Danforth lecturer Dr. James H. Cone

Lecturer takes two looks at freedom by Carrie Maples news editor Dr. J a m e s H Cone of Union Theological Seminary spoke to a full house in Winants Auditorium last Thursday afternoon. Cone titled his lecture "Two Roads to Freedom: Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X . " Cone opened by saying the two men were, "two people who mean a great deal to me and. I think, America " Cone then quoted King, " F r e e d o m is f r e e . " and Malcolm, " T h e proce of freedom is d e a t h . " to illustrate t h e i r s i m i l a r i t i e s a n d differences. Cone said both men were, " s e a r c h i n g for t h e freedom America Promised but never delivered." The two men just LOOK uifferend paths to the s a m e goal.

"As during their lifetimes, it is the Martin and Malcolm enthusiasts who s t r e s s their differences." Cone said they a r e seen as saints and, "saints have no weaknesses, only t e m p o r a r y lapses in judgement to remind us that they are h u m a n . " and we need to recognize their humanity. Cone said. "We must see them as they saw themselves and each other " as complimentary viewpoints. "Their methods, though different, had the s a m e goal, the unqualified liberation of the black people." Cone explained why each took the direction they did saying, "The differences between Martin's and Malcolm's strategies w e r e r e l a t e d p a r t l y to geography." King targeted the Southern Christian blacks while Malcolm aimed his attention at

the Northern ghetto blacks. King m o t i v a t e d people through his powerful faith. Nonviolent protest was the only way for the Southern blacks who were a 10 percent minority. "Like King. I was born and reared there," said Cone. " F a i t h in the God of the Bible as interpreted by the black church," said Cone, "led to an end of the f e a r . " Cone quoted King saying, "Do the right thing, the rest is in God's h a n d s , " and explained that increased violence and fear equal increased faith for the blacks as it did for the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto. M a l c o l m a p p e a l e d to t h e blacks of the northern ghettoes. " H e climbed out to become a Daniel for his people." Cone said of Malcolm who. " i n s p i r e d

'Holland) -- Hope college has received a ^rant from the National Science Foundation i NSF i that will fund the creation of a laser teaching laboratory The development of the facility will span a two-year period, with portions of the related program in place beginning with the 1990-91 academic year Student activities in the laser facility will center around three laboratory e x p e r i m e n t s t a u g h t in t h e physical chemistry laboratory curriculum The $44,000 from the NSF will provide half the money needed for the project Matching funds from other sources a r e being sought for the remainder

Subsequent experiments will emphasize applications using a dye laser system, which can create any color ot the visible spectrum The second experiment will require students to obtain a laser-induced flourescence spectrum of a chemical sample the third will have students measure energy transfer rates caused by changes in pressure in a gas cell through which the laser will shine. The laboratory will be used by all chemistry m a j o r s at the college Through journal articles and teaching workshops at the college, the laser program will be displayed as a model that can be adopted by other institutions

The laboratory will be used by chemistry majors' "The m a j o r impact of the proposed laser teaching laboratory will be to introduce chemistry m a j o r s to the operating principles and scientific applications of lasers through a hands-on approach." said William F. Polik. assistant professor of chemistry at Hope College. Polik noted that the increased importance of lasers to both chemistry and other physical sciences makes an understanding of their use important to students. "In fact, laser applications a r e so widespread that more than one-third of today's experimental papers in physics and chemistry report the use of lasers," Polik said. "Today's students, especially those who comtemplate scientific careers, require an introduction to lasers at the undergraduate level." In chemistry, according to Polik, a large number of spectroscopic techniques a r e based on laser instrumentation, and irradiation by laser light can be used to induce chemical changes

not otherwise possible in a system. Uses of lasers outside of scientific research include bar code scanning, laser surgery, cutting and welding, information storage on CD-ROM disks, and t h e d e v e l o p m e n t of n e w technologies. The t h r e e e x p e r i e m e n t s created for the new laboratory at Hope have been designed to introduce the students to the principles of laser operation and involve them in useful, interesting a p p l i c a t i o n s of l a s e r s in chemistry. "It is one of the first comprehensive efforts in the na tion to teach both the principles and the applications of lasers to undergraduate students," Polik said. The first experiment wil int r o d u c e s t u d e n t s to l a s e r technology and develop a basic understanding of the laser process by having them assemble a helium-neon laser, which creates the s a m e red light used by supermarket check-out line scanners.

Maple trees to be planted for Earth Day (HOPE) - Activities at Hope College in conjunction with national Earth Day will include the planting of two trees. Two sugar maple trees will be planted at Gilmore Hall on 10th Street near Columbia Avenue on Friday at 4 p.m The Friday tree planting is being coordinated by Environmental Issues Group at Hope as the highlight in a week-long series of activities tied to E a r t h Day. which is actually observed this year on Sunday, Aprill 22. The planting ceremony will include music with ecological I hemes by Erik Muiderman and Charlie Hoats. Other participants will include Chaplain Gerard Van Heest, who will deliver the invocation; Professor Stephen Hemenway, faculty moderator of the environmental group; and staff m e m e b e r Gloria Shay and junior Matthew Johnson, who will assist in the planting. Activities have also been planned for the week preceding the planting. From 7-9 p.m. tonight and Thursday evening, a staffed

"bulletin board' in the Van Wylen Library continues to provide information on environmental issues Petitions concerning such issues are also available for signing. Today from 4:30-7 p.m , the group will host an audio-visual table in the lobby between Phelps Hall and the Maas Center The table will feature a video program dealing with environmental issues. Also, during the afternoon of Saturday, April 21 at Westshore Mall, the organization will staff a booth focusing on the conservation of trees Several other groups with environmental concerns will also have booths at the mall. According to Hemenway, EIG developed late in Septemeber as a direct result of issues raised during the college's 1989 Vienna Summer School. During the prog r a m , which Hemenway led, Hope students were exposed to environmental issues by several guest speakers, such as the head of the Green movement. Vpon returning to the United

States, four or five of the students remained interested in establishing a group that could play an active role in increasng environmental a w a r e n e s s and helping the environment. The organization has since grown to 25 active members, and meets weekly "Almost everything we've done has some connection with paper, trees and recycling," said Hemenway. Hemenway explained that he sees the group functioning as a catalyst - helping other organizations focus their desire to help the environment. Other environmentallyoriented efforts at the college include the recycling of paper products - an initiative which started in J a n u a r y of 1988 with the college s administrative offices and has since expanded to other a r e a s of campus, including student d o r m i t o r i e s . S e v e r a l m e m b e r s of the college's c h a p t e r of M o r t a r Board a l s o p a r ticipated in a statewide Mortar Board highway cleanup project last fall, collecting 23 bags of trash along US-31.

P a m Lundberg staff writer According to Hope College, the minimum wage increase will have little or no effect on working students. On April 1, federal minimum wage increased from $3.35 to $3.80 It is set to rise again to $4.25 in 1991. Some schools a r e afraid that they will not be able to pay the higher wages and will, therefore, be forced to cut jobs This could lead to understaffing and students without jobs Two more factors affecting work-study students nationwide a r e the t r a i n i n g w a g e and percentage of wages that the schools themselves must pay. The "training w a g e " , which can be paid to workers under 20 for at least three months but no more than six, is 85 per cent of the minimum wage, but no less than $3.35 an hour. The U.S. Dept. of Educ. has alread said that s t u d e n t s on work-study should not get this training rate.

Students who work off campus a n d fit t h e t r a i n i n g w a g e qualifications a r e the ones that will suffer. Under the work-study prog r a m , federal aid and sometimes state governments pay 75 percent of the money students earn. Now the Education Dept. has passed new regulations that will require schools to pay 30 percent of thir work-study s t u d e n t s ' wages. Thus, underbudgeted schools may cut jobs. William Anderson, director of Business and Finance and Bruce H i m e b a u g h , director H u m a n Resources, agree that the workstudy program at Hope will not be affected greatly. The number of jobs will remain the s a m e as will t h e a m o u n t of m o n e y students must e a r n . The only thing that will probably change is the amount of time students spend working. Hope College is doing what it can so that students do not lose out, they said.

Anchor rededicated Saturday ( H O P E ) - A rededication ceremony at Hope College marked the 25th anniversary of the dedication of the symbolic anchor that stands on the lawn fronting Graves Hall. The ceremony took place at the anchor, which faces College Avenue between Graves Place and 10th Street, last Saturday. The nine-foot, 1,790 pound Admiralty Anchor, a gift of the Baldt Anchor, Chain and Forge Division of Boston Metals Company of Chester, P a . , was installed during the s u m m e r of 1965. The anchor w a s presented to Hope by m e m b e r s of the college's Nu Beta chapter of the national service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, and was reportedly more than 100 y e a r s old at the time of installation. Usually painted white, the anchor is a popular victim during the rivalry that arises between Hope and Calvin College during basketball season, and has been

r e p a i n t e d m a r o o n a n d gold several times through the years by Calvin students during latenight raids. As the college's symbol, the anchor is tied to a s t a t e m e n t m a d e by the Rev. Albertus C.Van Raalte, founder of both Holland and Hope. In r e f e r r i n g to the Pioneer School, predecessor to the college, Van Raalte said, "This is my Anchor of Hope for this people in the f u t u r e . " The college's n a m e , seal (which features an anchor) and motto ("Spera in Deo," for "Hope in Grod") a r e all derived from Van Raalte's observation. The anchor's stone pedestal is adorned with biblical verses that mirror Van Raalte's words: "We desire that everyone of you lay hold of the hope set before us, which hope we have as a n anchor of the soul, both s u r e and steadf a s t " (Hebrews 6:11,18,19).

For Comptroller: What is the most important qualification to be Comptroller? What is your philosophy on the distribution of the Student Activity Fund 0 * How would you h a n d l e a surplus of $20,000 next year?

STEVE VANDER ROEST VP 1 see the role of Vice President not solely to assist the President but much m o r e I think the biggest role is publicity to increase involvement and awareness of the student body 1 strongly believe the essential ingredient to participatnon is knowledge. Although I have had extensive experience with political organizations in high school, not only as President of the student council but also as an active student voice on the administration board. 1 have not had the opportunity to be a part of the student council at Hope College. I see this as an advantage, not a detriment I not only have the experience of previous participation in similar organizations but also the sight and goals of the common student I know what we hear and more importantly what n e don t h e a r a b o u t what iranspires at the meeting. It is my job to inform you and spark the participation that accompanies knowledge. This is my goal, through a newsletter or possibly the anchor 1 have proven myself academically to have the dedication it takes to secceed. I know I can apply this as Vice President of the student council. On Friday, when filling â&#x20AC;˘ in your choice for Vice President, R E M E M B E R ROOST-, Steve

JAMES O'NEAL COMP The most important qualification that the Comptroller must have is that of conscientiousness The C o m p t r o l l e r must be responsible, prudent, cautious and have many more attributes. The Comptroller is the chief financial officer of the Activities Fund which totals around $150,000 of the students' money. I know that 1 don't want my money wasted and you. the students, don't want your money wasted either. It is the conscientiousness of the Comptroller that guarantees that every dime is put to good use The Appropriations Charter sets down a guideline on the distribution of the Activities Fee that is to be strictly followed. Within the Charter. I would say that I want most of the money to go to the majority of students and that no money is wasted The last part may seem like a dream but if the Comptroller and the Appropriations Committee do a good job this waste will at least be kept to a minimum. The $20,000 surplus would virtually h a n d l e i t s e l f . Two previously funded organizations haven't received their operational budgets; WTHS wants to add a $6,000 AP wire service. These things and more smaller, but consequential m a t t e r s will quickly eat up this surplus. I see it as duty of the Comptroller to see that the money is used properly and in a manner consistent with the Appropriations Charter and m the students' interests.

At this time the specific amounts of money and a listing of what a r e a s and items the money (will be used for) can either be submitted in written form in a proposal with all existing expenses, or the organization can supplement a s p e c i a l p r o j e c t t h a t has a campus-wide significance, such as a c a m p a i g n to promote responsible drinking year round An organization, such as BAC CHUS would be asking for mone\ to do a r a l l y , lazer-printed posters, t-shirts. mugs, etc to support this project 1 would handle a surplus ot $20,000 for the next school year on : 1. A scholarship fund lor needy students (all students, not just minorities). This fund will be in addition to other financial aid. not in place of financial aid package. 2. To donate money for a new Studeni Union or remodel the old Student Union. 3 Put the money into an account and or investment plan so the scholarship fund (not necessarily a need\ student scholarship f u n d ' can i>e established yearly

Write a letter for a liberal education I

Last week the c a m p u s buzzed with class discussions and informal bull sessions about the Danforth lecturer Dr . J a m e s H.Cone's comment that Hope College is inherently rascist. Cone said any college or institution that has so little acknowledgment of black history and accomplishments in its curriculem is sending the message to millions of black people that they a r e not important in a liberal arts curriculem That. Cone said, is rascist. Responses ranged from "Right on" to "But I love blacks" to flat out " H e ' s wrong." Whatever the response. Cone s words m a d e a stir and shook those who listened And then Cone went back to Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He went back, just as Rev.Dr.Allan Boesak went back to South Africa. They left a message to Hope College. A message that is difficult to be a r . No one likes to be called rascist or apathetic. But then there a r e finals coming up and term p a p e r s a r e due daily for the rest of the semester. Who has time to fight for change 9 It is easier to push Cone's, Boesak's and the cries of Hope's own multi-cultural students to the back of the priority list. Cone recommended changing the curriculum to accommodate the impact blacks and other minorities have had on America This is a practical first step toward a truly liberal (allencompassing) education. The bureaucratic s t r u c t u r e is already in place to implement the change. The Academic Affairs Board awaits a push f r o m the tuition paying students for these changes to the curriculum. The problems a r e still g r e a t . But they a r e m o r e surmountable and reasonable than looking to the Admissions Department as a scapegoat for not recruiting enough minority students. Sometimes the anchor and other m e m b e r s of the student body have looked to the administration and or the Board of Trustees to shoulder the blame for Hope College's lily white existence. But the time for scapegoats is past. Now that the students, faculty, administration and possibly even the Board knows what can be, and should be, done for the good of the College and the students' education it is time to do it. But where is the time to do anything? Couldn't it wait till next semester9 Yes, it could ; it could if the Hope College community is willing to settle for a second rate liberal a r t s education. It is absurd to consider a liberal a r t s education well rounded if the students a r e never exposed to black and hispanic culture. In g r a d u a t e schools as well as the business world, minorities a r e everywhere. To not know something of their cultures is to be unprepared. A liberal a r t s education is nothing if it does not prepare students So this week t a k e the time out to write one letter expressing your opionon about changing the curriculum. Send this letter through free c a m p u s m a i l to any of the following: President Jacobson, Provost Nyenhuis, Dr.Sander De Haan the chairperson of the Academic Affairs Board, or to Dr.A.N. Perovich the chairperson of the Curriculum Committee. The anchor is also m o r e than willing to print s o m e of these letters. By sending these letters to people of authority, the Hope community can be heard in one fine swoop. Let the College hear the voices and opionions of each student, faculty m e m b e r , staff person, and administrator. It is time for everyone as a p a r t of Hope College to sacrifice some time for our own good. < i.

¥ Letters to the Editor

Campus evils need stomping out Dear Editor: In last week's letter to the editor, a Hope student brought to our attention three profound evils occuring on our campus. I too, a m appalled at the "annoying, spike h a i r e d j u v e n i l e , " " i n f l u x of s t u d e n t s p l a y i n g g a m e s on the Vax and Zeniths." and t h e " n o less t h a t 120 cigarette butts outside of Van Wylen." Even more disgusting is the lack of student reaction concerning these problems. Across c a m p u s , students and faculty a r e gearing up for E a r t h day with such time consuming projects a s Crop walk and the Project Pride park clean up, neglecting the fact that therp is a "spiked haired juvenile" with alleged behavioral disorders running r a m p a n t through VanWylen. Although one could a r g u e that the problem of environmental destruction is not unworthy, we have to get our priorities correct. I propose a solution. 1. A l l " s p i k e d h a i r e d juvenilles" and other unworthies ( u n w o r t h y - one not p a y i n g $13,000 to go to Hope) caught in the library or near Hope College property will be first warned and Hope

Greek Council dispels myths about system Dear Editor: This is a letter on behalf of (.he Greek organiztions here at Hope College. There has been a great deal of rumor, concern, and app r e h e n s i o n a s s o c i a t e d with sororities and fraternities here at thie C h r i s t i a n , l i b e r a l a r t s school. Many people feel that such organizations do not belong within such an environment. We hope to dispel some of the r u m o r s and lessen the anxiety m a n y feel with this letter.

Since this letter concerns the Greeks here at Hope College, a basic question that must be answered is : " W h a t a r e fraternities and s o r o r i t i e s ? " One basic answer is that we a r e groups of friends. We enjoy doing things together; things such as eating, playing i n t r a m u r e l g a m e s , sitting around talking, and having fun.

ship could only get better He didn't realize at the time t h a t he asked her out that he could buy her. He knew she was on the m a r k e t , but nothing more. He loved to have her holding his h a n d . She was beautiful. After a few dates, though, he found that she was for sale and t h a t there were a lot less wires to hook up than his new compact disc player It was really the only decision he could have made. She was a g r e a t asset to him. Didn't all his friends slap him on the back and congradulate him on his "perfect f i n d ? " Wasn't he the luckiest 9 They did m a k e a g r e a t couple. Anyone could see that. He liked her constant attention. She was always available during the weekends. He could go out with the boys and call her up at midnight and she was ready, even impatient for his call. And he knew she cared for him. Didn't she break c o m m i t m e n t s with other people to go with him whenever he called?

So he bought her. Sarah didn't mind being bought. She didn't know anything else. In high school she had been a cheerleader for four years and now here at college she was a proud independent. She had wanted to join a sorority, but her last owner had been misinformed about the greek system. He told her to stay independent and free. She d i d n ' t b e l i e v e the stereotypes about the greeks being all alike, but she did what he told her too. At h o m e S a r a h h a d n o freedom. Her parents wanted her to get a c o l l e g e e d u c a t i o n because it was expected of young women from their neighborhood. They sent her to Hope College so that she could be around other Christians (she didn't have the heart to tell them that she didn't go to church at school). When she graduated they would buy her a car. a Mazda. She would g r a d u a t e ; her parents were paying for her education. If you asked her about her life.

She would miss talking to him ; he listened to her No one else ever did. Sarah never thought much beyond this. People might think her shallow for not doing so. But she didn t like to seek out hurt.

EBTG also recruited highly touted jazz d r u m m e r O m a r Hakin to play the d r u m s on the a l b u m . Hakim is best known for his jazz solo work, and his contributions to Sting's jazz-rock fusion solo albums. To help round out the b a n d , E B T G got respected jazz musicians Russell F e r r a n t e on piano, and Stan Getz on saxophone. Thorn c a r r i e s most of the vocals on the album, with Watt singing an occasional lead but mainly backing vocals. Thorn s voice is not particularly unique (she sounds like just about every other English songstress) but it is a p l e a s u r e to listen to, and she does a good job keeping the inten-

sity through the song. P a r t i c u l a r ly pleasing is the way she is able to play off the saxophone lines that a r e found on most t r a c k s of the album This shows up best on the t r a c k s " T a k e Me" and 4 , Me and Bobb D " . Thorn s vocals weave in and out with the countering saxophone lines of Kirk Whalum (who is extremely hot on both t r a c k s ) . " T h e Language of L i f e " is one of those a l b u m s that will g r a b your attention f r o m the first listen, and gets better with each new listen .
