Hope College ANCHOR

Democratic Ancho Dear Editors, It is important to realize that there is more to democracy than simple majorities. The US constitution is a conservative document that pits a system of checks and balances against the will of the majority. One of the basic dangers the US Constitution was designed to avoid is disintegration into mob rule, and abrogation of the rights of minority interests. Democracy is representafive government, and the form that representation takes is up to the people, or the representatives of the people. P e r h a p s it is the limits we put on democracy which have helped preserve it so well. On the subject of democracy, consider the Anchor. Is the Anchor staff elected by the students at large? No, the editor is appointed my the Media Committee. The other staff is selected by the editor. Experience counts very highly when selecting the editorial staff for the Anchor. One could say that the Anchor is a non-democratic check on the

democratically elected Student Congress, a s the US Supreme Court is the appointed check on the US Congress. The Anchor lists eight people on its editorial board. Student Congress has 36 elected student representatives when at full strength. Tell me comrade, which seems more like the US Congress to you? The problem of the media assuming the role of self appointed defender of the rights of the people is not endemic to Hope College, but the entire country. The role of the media in exposing fraud and corruption is essential, but there also needs to be discretion on the part of the journalists when presenting the news. Some of the Anchor staff seem to sorely abuse Iheir editorial priviledge. R a t h e r t h a n p r e s e n t i n g insightful commentary, they seem to try and shock and offend people. The writing in the Anchor sometimes seems to resemble The National Enquiror more than The Washington Post. Sincerely, Lisa Brawley

Tyrant Editors Reply Dear Lisa, You're right, Student Congress does seem more like the U.S. Congress than the Anchor. You're very astute on that point. But, beyond that, you're not — at least when talking about the Anchor and what it's done this year. The Anchor editor-in-chief (or co-editors as the case has been this past year and will be next) are appointed by the Student C o m m u n i c a t i o n s and Media Committee. This committee is the only administrative committee students have a majority on. They are in control. These are Student Congress members, no less. The Anchor, then, is at the mercy of Congress for its leadership. As it is with its budget. Unlike the r e a l world, H o p e ' s newspaper is funded with monies appropriated by Student Congress. It is possible that Congress could cut us off from funding (and wouldn't that be a neat democratic trick?). When selecting the remaining

editorial staff, experience does not count as highly as one would think. Sure, one needs to knowhow to write. But, more importantly, the staff members need to know how to talk to and deal with people. The eight people you refer to who are on the editorial board do not write even close to everything printed in the Anchor. The majority of copy comes from some of our over 100 writers who have contributed this past year. We've got a base of opinion and talent which Student Congress doesn't even come close to. The Anchor has successfully b r o u g h t i s s u e s b e f o r e the s t u d e n t s , f a c u l t y , and Administration. If something's happening on campus — whether it be right or wrong — we've covered it fairly in our news articles. What you seem to fail to see, however, is that we are also a vehicle for comment. If someone does something incredibly stupid that could affect students for years to come, we'll alert the stu-

dent body — in whatever manner we deem necessary. A case in point is the consideration by Congress of restricting the candidacies of the big three officers. What Congress is considering is pretty radical, thus we reacted immediately and emotionally with an essay. What you're comtemplating isn't some little amendment. It's big news. So get real. Even if the Anchor is not a totally democratic organization. Student Congress still does not have the right to limit candidates — something which is in direct violation of the democratic ideals you so lovingly espouse. Maybe if Student Congress were working as well as the Anchor you wouldn't be so concerned with us. It's not, though. And the way it's going, it ain't improving none either. - T a n i s and Kraetzer P.S. We've read the Student Congress constitution and know how S.C. is supposed to work. Do you?

COUNTRY l i e d (Si B r e a k f a s t


The conclusion of the Air J a m was followed by r u m o r s that a ^roup of students were going to sue the performers of the USA or Africa group. The reason? Some of the group's m e m b e r s , in an attempt to make their proa r a y a l of m u s i c i a n s m o r e ealistic, painted their faces 3lack. I, realizing that the students did not have any bad intentions or "making fun" ideas n mind, couldn't understand why there was so much concern. The days following were met with a bonbardment of new and unconfirmed rumors and discussions amongst group members. None of us seemed to understand why people were so upset, but I think that now I do. Whether or not we intend to hurt someone is not the point. If another person is offended by our actions, we must take it seriously. We need to care about each other more and think harder about the results of our actions. Let's learn from this experience and apply it to what wwe say and do today. Cal Warren "Bruce Springsteen"

Focused Facts •f"

Dear Editors, In response to the Air J a m uproar letter of April 17th, I would like to bring a few facts into focus so that a better understanding of this affair may be had by all. First of all it should be mentioned that all the participants in the USA for Africa act were mimicking all of the performers black and white. There were no biases shown - just pure imita' t io n . I d i d n ' t s e e a n y predominantly white organization complain of a blatant viola-

tion of white's civil rights because they mockingly portrayed Kenny Rogers, Cyndi Lauper, or Bruce Springsteen with some undetermined degree of malice. It was for fun and imitation is the name of the game take it or leave it. Secondly, I feel that the Black Coalition's attitude exudes a feeling that the white community of Hope owes them something because they are black. Au Contraire, the only thing anyone, including the Black Coalition, deserves is equal treatment and opportunity, and that is exactly

Dear Editor,. In last week's issue, an article entitled "Anemic Air J a m " , by Kirk kraetzer appeared. It is this article taht we with to reply to. As a stated policy, any group is welcome to use the theatre and its various spaces for meetings^ concerts, or events such as Air J a m V. In doing so, the incoming group recognizes the fact that a full staff of qualified student technicians will be present to supervise the running of the event, and the use of theatre equipment. This was the case with Air J a m V. Agreed, there was entirely too much confusionin the lobby area. However, this is the responsibility of SAC. They should hve placed ushers at the doors in order to keep the crowd under control, and so that the staff could finish their preparations for the event. Thsi was the primary reason the house did not open at 7:30. SAC simply was not organized enough to do so. As for the comment about the "insolent stage hand," we were asked to keep people out of the balcony lobby until the main floor had been filled. A further delay occrred when the show's host, Dave VAnDyke, decided he wasn't going to start until 8:15 anyway, and took his time getting ready. The main complaint of the evening ws the sound system. A full sound check was run earlier in the evening and the system was running fine. Not one of the Air J a m V participants came in, or arranged for a sound level check of their own tapes. As with any, recorded amtter, if it has been recorded at low sound levels or on bad tape, the sound reproduction will be poor. This was the case with many of the tapes used for Air J a m V. It should be noted that the theatre sound s y s t e m is e q u i p p e d primarily for use in theatrical what they received on the night of April 12th. In closing I would like to bring one personal observation into this whole overreacted mess. One evening while home for Christmas, I watched Saturday night live and the qu^st host was Eddie Murphy. One of his skits included "white facing" - he proceeded to make the white, race to look like some type of disillusioned breed of jackasses. Murphy was superb and I don't think I've ever laughed so hard. Get a grip Black Coalition. V.Snvder



performances, not as a concert hall system. SAC chose to use the available system, rather than renting a system on its own. We feel that Mr. Kraetzer's accusations concerning the theatre and the theatre staff are unfounded. He assumes we were uncooperative with the committee from SAC. If the truth be known, none of us on staff the night of Air J a m V received any pay for our efforts. If that isn't cooperation between departments, then we would appreciate some insight. Mr. Kraetzer did not bother to inquire about any of these difficulties, instead he unfairly assumed that the theatre staff was responsible. This was a SAC-sponsored event; SAC is ultimately responsible for its outcome. Take your accusations to them, not to the theatre staff. We all work hard at our jobs, and we do them well. Unfortunately, we are always the ones who get blamed for the unprofessionalism of such events as Air Jam V. Such events could not take place without the support of the theatre staff and equipment. Think about that the next time you assume exactly who is •^sponsible. Sincerely, David Rowell, Amy Kennedy, Paul Smith, Margie Oklatner, Ann Grady, Stephen Poortenga, Shelley Strobel P.S. You are correct, Mr. Kraetzer. We are quite distressed about the use of black face in Air Jam V. Whether it is illegal or not, it is in poor taste. When groups use the theatre, a certain level of maturity is expected of them. The blatant disregard for the rights of certain individuals is not considered responsible on the part of the "USA for Africa" group, or on the part of SAC. This disregard is a reflection on the entire Hope community.

Jewish Name-calling To the Editors, President Reagan's planned visit next month to the cemetary of Bitburg, West Germany, has created far too much unneeded controversey from the Jewish sector of this country. The Jewish inability to rise above petty name-calling and to actually see the good in this visit, only adds to the anti-Semetic attitude that exists. This controversial semetary contains the graves of some 1,900 German soldiers who save their lives for their country — only 47 of these graves hold the remains of SS (Security Staff) soldiers. It is true that these SS soldiers belonged to the section of1 the German military that were in charge of the annihilation of the Jewish people, but there are SS graves in most all of West Germany's military cemetaries. The cemetary at Bitburg was chosen because it symbolizes GermanAmerican reconciliation. It was totally wiped out by Allied bombing and then was rebuilt by the United States into an airbase after the war. Bitburg was not the sight of some concentration camp where millions of Jewish lives were extinguished, but this is the type of scenario that the Jews of this country portray. The German Army and its people were victims os this terrible period as well. Hitler had disguised his true intentions by restoring national pride and dignity as well as developing a powerful economy. This deception pulled the German people into a situation that was inescapable. The young men who at the ages of 16, 17, and 18 entered the war at its ending stages had no deep anti-Semetic feelings of hatred — they were drafted and it Is their blood and' the blood of their comrades that. Reagan is commemorating. Why must the Jewish people continue to dwell on this issue and continually rub the German V peoples' face into this dark

Holmes Publishes Book The Mood-Interest Theory of American Foreign Policy, a book written by Dr. Jack E. Holmes, associate professor of political science at Hope, has been published by the University Press of Kentucky. Introvert and extrovert mood in American foreign policv, as originally Identified by Prof. Fratik L. Klingberg in 1952, are explained in the book. A basic conflict between politicomilitary interests and the foreign policy moods of the American electorate is developed by Holmes as one manner in which moods might work. Holmes developed a detailed account of the overwhelming impact of public moods o American foreign policy. Policy-making structures, executive-legislative relations, presidential personality, p r a g m a t i s m , m o r a l i s m , elitism, conservatism, international e c o n o m i c s , and humanitarianism are related to the mood-interest pattern. Holmes's analysis Indicates that American moods are continuing unabated according to past patterns, indicating that American foreign policy may undergo some suprising changes in the next decacde. The foreward to the book was written by Prof. Klingberg who states that it is "well written and convincig with a balanced and fair point of View' and 'especially v a l u a b l e i o r those who try to educate^r mold public opinion.' Half of Chapter 2, based on 1982 and 1983 International Studies Assosciation papers, ws written by Prof. Robert E. Elder of the Hope political science department along with Holmes. A number of Hope students worked on various phases of the book as it evolved of the last several years. Current students who are acknowledged for their special contibutions include

junior Paul Bolt, seniors Sally Budd, Jeff Eraser, and Brian Gardner. Also assisting were juniors Kim Japinga and Gary Koops along with sophomores Lon McCoIlum, Dan Stid, and junior Dirk Weeldreyer. The book is abailable from the Hope-Geneva Bookstore or bv calling 1-800-638-3030 which is a toll-free order number for the University Press of Kentucky.

On March 23, during spring break, five Biology majors from Hope travelled to the Beta Beta Beta National Biological Honors Society regional convention at Eastern Michigan Universtiy in Ypsilanti, While t h e r e , t h e s e five presented papers on research in competition with students from universities and colleges in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.

G/zow Wins Car Solomon Gizaw, a Hope College student, is the proud owner of a 1977 Pontiac Catalina valued at$1800. Elhart Pontiac of Holland sponsored a contest to see who could remain physically attached to the car for the longest period of time. On April 11, at 10:00 a.m., the endurance test began. Fourteen


determined contestants started out. This number dwindled down to four quickly and then to two. On April 20, at 4:30, Gizaw took the grand prize. The contestants were given 15 minute breaks every eight hours but spent the remainder of the 11 days and nights touching the vehicle.

Among the students presenting was national first-place winner Dave Pluymers, who has done work in plant cell susceptibility to damage my mutagens. Also presenting was Jeanine Baisch, second-place national winner, who worked with Dr. Carolyn kalsow on experimental autoimmune uveitis, which models the human desease, uveitis, which can lead to blindness. Pluymer, working under Dr. James Gentile, reports that both of the mutagenic chemicals he studied are mamalian, meaning they could conceivably cause cancer in humans. Due to his national award, Pluymers' paper was not included in the competition. Baisch took first in her section. The other presenters were Kabet Sterk, who has been working with Dr. Donald Cronkite. He presented work on "A comp a r i s o n of a c c l i m a t i o n of Parmecium in two differtent media." Sterk's work centered on placing Paramecium in axenic mediums to determine their level of salt tolerance, then testing to see if thev can ac-

Dawn West, who took second tn her section, did work on the thirst r e s p o n s e of t h e r m a l l y dehydrated rats. This Involved studying which receptors in the brain (there are two; osmo and beta) are most Important in determining this response. She found that the osmo receptors were the more important in that they actually cause thirst when cells begin to shrink from dehydration. From here she, and her advisor Dr. Chris Barney, can continue with the research and apply it to reactions of humans when they are thermally dehydrated, much as people stranded in dry, arid regions might be. Karen Wuertz also worked with Dr. Barney on "The effects of food deprivation and thyroid h o r m o n e l e v e l s on b e t a adrenergic responsiveness in male r a t s .

Responses in food deprived rats include decreased heart rate, plasma - glucose levels, and colonic temperature, as well as the thyroid hormone level. Wuertz wishes to continue her work to determine if this hormone level drop is responsible for the other factors as well. She does know, however, that there is no glucose involvement.

Late Night in the Kletz by Libby Bryson Ever feel like sipping down a little mocha java or cxinnamonstick tea and polishing off a few cookies when that late night hunger sets in? Or what about those times when an unavoidable "all-nighter" is in the plans and a relaxing break is needed but the kletz has long beeen closed for the evening? Well, beginning April 25th and c o n t i n u i n g through finals week until May 2nd, these late night urges can be relieved. Late night coffee in the kletz will be available during the hours of 11:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. the night-owl menu will include gourmet coffees including Dutch Breakfast Blend, Mocha Java,

Columbian Supremo, and other brews; herbal teas such as Sweet Dreams tea, Take a Break tea, and a wide asortment of other flavors; and a variety of tasty cookies will also be served. Late night in the kletz is an idea originating from a subcommittee of the Alcohol Education and Concerns Committee consisting of Brian Daley, Jodi Foutch, Bruce Johnston, and Joanne Kleis. "We ariginally wnted to start a coffee house in one of the cottages owned by Hope College," explains Foutch. "If would feature freshly ground coffee, various teas, some types of food, student art and music,

and would be open seven days a week until 2:00 or 2:30 a.m. It would be a place where students could go to study, or socialize, but most importantly, an alternative to parties or other alcohol related events." A trial run last week proved the idea to be very successful. Student response has been encouraging and an energetic interest in a permanent coffee house is evident. The committee has requested that those who would like to see late night coffee continue, to let it be known to the committee, Fonda Green, Student Affairs, or write a letter to the Anchor!

Oxford Scholarships Clarified Dear Editor, I would like to offer the following clarification to your article "Oxford Scholarships Available" (anchor April 17,1985): 1. Wamborough College is not part of and has never been part of Oxford University. And while I do not know the details of Warnsborough's current status, to the best of my knowledge it was formerlyu a teacher training in-

stitution offering a Diploma in Education, which is a two-yar degree and not equivalent to a B.A. 2. Further, Warnborough College is located on Boar's Hill which is about seven or eight miles from Oxford. It should be noted that the "Oxford Experience" being offered is one of living in the Oxford area but not «fcs ^ «

the expertience of attending Oxford University. Students interested in studying abroad whether in Oxford or elsewhere in England are urged to contact the International Education Office. Sincerely, Neal W.Sobania Director, International Education

How WTHS Spends



h I, *•,

; 'iv i1 .


oy j by FraBcls Deck, Engineer, WTHS There has been a lot of talk among students lately about how WTHS spends money. Most of the talk is idle speculation or rumor. In fact, before this article was written, only three people in the world understood WTHS's financial situation, and none of us has ever made a public statement about it. It is time that the entire College understood how WTHS works. Since WTHS has become a student organization, it has received a small 'operating budget* from Student Congress. This budget was to cover general operating expenses and supplies. The size of this budget has not changed significantly even in the last few years. In 1983, the Student Congress decided to borrow $40,000 from the College to Invest in a new FM radio station. This money was to be paid off gradually so that no particular graduating class would have to shoulder the entire burden. The money was to completely cover the cost of new equipment as well as installation, legal, and consulting costs. In 1983, WTHS received a permit from the FCC to commence as planned. ANother s t a t i o n challenged the FCC's granting of our permit, however, and we had the option either giving up with $40,000 worth of equipment on our hands, or pursuing a new permit. We chose the latter option, and incurred more costs. It was hoped at the start of the FM project that WTHS, although not allowed to broadcast advertisements, could * takfT /underwriting' money from companies and • broadcast endorsements i the same way that Public TV sta-

tions do. The donated money would be used to help pay back the $40,000 loan. This year, the Administration informed us that we should not ask companies for donations of money. It was silly, they said, for us to go to a company and beg for $100, after the company had donated $100,000 to the College. They felt they could probably raise a bit of money from the companies themselves, and then shave some 'off the top' for us. At present, this is how the major expenditures of WTHS are being funded. The station must justify every penny that it receives in this fashion, and the college is very hard-nosed about it. Therefore, the station has made every attempt to economize. At present, we have made one test broadcast and we feel that we can go on the air without any more m a j o r expenditures. It is not our policy, however, to make a prediction as to when this will occur. We have made too many overoptimistic predictions in the past. Since most of our current costs are to be spread out over many years, it is hard to say just how much the College is paying on a per year basis. We can confidently say, however, that we are not the biggest spending student organization o campus. (note: I would like to publically thank Mr. Deck for providing us, the student body, with the factual information he has included in his letters to the Anchor, information that would have been otherwise unavailable to us. His willingness to share hard facts with us is all too r a r e -and is greatly'appreciated. -Todd VerBeek, photo editor. Anchor, editor. Inklings)

R. A.'s Chosen by Libby Brvson Interviews tor Resident Assistant positions began February 15 and continued until shortly before spring break. OUt of the 150 applications received, approximately 80 R.A.'s have been chosen for the 1985-86 school year. About 30 of these are returning R.A.'s. Final contracts are still being delivered to the Student Affairs office. The R.A.'s responsibilities are vast and a significant time commitment is required. For example, each R.A. is on duty usually twice a week. They must spend a great deal of off duty weekday nights on their floor or cottage, must be the last person to depart for vacations, and the first to

return, and are expected to be on campus for special events like H o m e c o m i n g and P a r e n t ' s weekend. The residence life program pursues certain objectives. The R.A.'s help to promote these goals by encouraging student expression through social activities, productive membership in Hope College and outside communities, and by interpreting college policies arid standards of behavior as stated in the school's rules. Resident Assistants must be upperclassmen with a grade point of at least 2.3. If an R.A.'s grade point should fall below this standard, his or her situation will

be under review by the Assistant Dean of Students. Orientation for the 1985 R.A.'s begins the week prior to the usual student arrival time. It consists of four days of activities designed to acquaint them with sevices, resources, and the administration. Features will be sessions focusing on dealing with feelings, returning R.A.'s comments, student l e a d e r s h i p , alcohol awareness, and crisis intervention. You can find out the name of the R.A. for the floor you will be . living on next year by either talking to the Student Affairs office or the Dorn or Apartment head residents.

Spring Safety Now that the spring weather has arrived, the Department of Public Safety would like to express concern for the safety of the college community and the safety of its properties. One of the concerns is the increased number of bike thefts that historically occurs during this time of the year. Between 20 and 30 bikes have been reported stolen annually from campus over the past two years. Already this spring, 4 bikes have been reported stolen since spring break. To prevent this type of larceny, Public Safety recommends that

you purchase a good quality lock and register your bike at Public Safety. Always secure your bike to a designated bike rack and acarry insurance that will cover the value of the bike in the event that it is stolen. Not only is property a concern for spring, but also personal safety. MOre people are out of doors during warmer weather, increasing the chance of violent crimes, personal injury and theft. Please follow these suggestions to prevent any opportunity for crime at Hope College. 1. Don't walk alone, especially at night.

2. Call Public Safety for an escort if you are alone.* Our extension is 2250. 3. Lock your car and keep valuables out of sight. 4. Lock your dorm room when you aren't there and always carry your key. 5. Lock your bike to designated racks. 6. Report any suspicious activity to Public Safety immediatly. Don't give anyone the opportunity to commit a crime at Hope College. Follow these tips and help prevent personal injury and property loss this spring.

Hope College ANCHOR : '

Phelps to Receive Addition by Jennifer TenHave Pending approval from the Hope College Board of Trustees, tmbonstruction of a $500,000 to $600,000


center as an addition to Phelps Hall is schedualed to begin sometime this s u m m e r , according to Hope P r e s i d e n t Gordon Van Wylen.

The cost of the new building will be covered by a gift, earmarked for this construction, from one source in the Campaign for Hope, the $23 million fundraising effort which began last fall. 'We're making the recommendation to preceed with the building to the Board at their

meeting on May 2 and 3,' said Van Wylen. 'We hope to start construction this s u m m e r and finish by the end of next fall's semester.' According to Van Wylen, the two main reasons for constructing such a facility are the needs for meeting and banguet space. 'The existing Herrick Room in

DeWitt found a tremendous need for meetings-but that room is relatively small,' stated Van Wylen. 'For example, on a high school visitation day, there really is no place for all of those students to come together.' He also noted that the new facility would be available to the community on a rental basis. Van Wylen explained that the new facility would have two rooms: one large multi-purpose room which would hold approximately either 350 people in lecture seating or 250 people in banquet seating, and a similar but smaller room which would hold approximately 110 in lecture or 80 people in banquet. In between the two would be a storage and food-serving area. Phelps cafeteria would remain intact. Sue Langejans, Director of Student Affairs, said she is 'thrilled by the potential of this new facility.' 'Looking at the buildings Hope has built recently, this new one should be another really positive addition to the campus. 'From the drawings of the floor plans, it really looks like a flexible facility-which gives us a chance to be more creative and to offer programs we otherwise would not have been able to,' said Langejans. 'Sometimes a new facility will inspire us to new programs, to spark our creativity-whereas

old buildings could tend to stagnate our Ideas. 'I see this facility as opening up a lot of doors and having great potential. Anything is a possibility when we have the space to do it,'she added. Langejans sees another advantage of this construction in the fact that the Kletz, instead of closing to accomodate various meetings, will be able to stay open more hours as a snack bar. 'Now the Kletz has to close on nights when there are e v e n t s which means that you can almost count on it being closed Friday and Saturday evenings. 'I have hopes that the new facility will free up the Kletz to be a kletz, to be a nice alternative p l a c e for s t u d e n t s to get together. 'In this construction, the focus is on the students. We want students to make use of the newbuilding during the school year. During the summer, it will be used for conference purposes,' stated Langejans. John Hensler, student activities coordinator, also seed the potential building as focusing on student's needs. 'One way it will be great or students is that it will have a wooden dance floor. Right now, so many students complain that they can't dance on the carpet in the Kletz. Also, there will be a higher ceiling, which means better ventilation for dances,' said Hensler. 'The bigger room will be great for large scale performances too big for the Kletz,' he added.

.. .And Another Th i ng


by Mark Rebhan

Spring Cleaning It's me again. I took last week off so I could prepare a really good parting shot. I wanted to search for one really juicy topic for my last article — but so many things came up, I couldn't just keep it to one, so I'm going spring cleaning: Apartheid and disinvestment: This topic seems to have dropped out of the picture lately, but that doesn't surprise me considering the fact that our society seems to pick-up and drop controversies with equal enthusiasm. Apartheid was a new word for a lot of people, and I'm still not con viced that a majority of people know what it is, other than to say it is ''decidely un-Christian." The Hope College student body takes an interest in anything of that sort; and upon learning of it decided that the answer was to cry for immediate disinvestment in any of the American companies in South Africa. I assume that the reasoning was something like: If we take our money out of those companies, they'll be forked to pressure the ^South African government to amend its Apartheid policies, to repent and fall back into line with

mainstream humanitarians. Taken at that level, the logic seems okay, even noble. But I don't think that many of these outspoken critics of the investment policies took a really good look at what might be the result of disinvestment, nor at what the U.S. companies are doing in South Africa. Too many just jumped on the bandwagon after somebody mentioned that ''slavery goes way back in the Reformed Church tradition," figuring it was a good way to make some corporations look bad. Well, I have got some interesting facts which I took the time to research. Did you know that a vast, an in large, portion of the black leaders in South Africa fcvant more U.S. investment...and this includes the leaders of the Zulu tribe? They say that disinvestment, a U.S. pulout would cause utter chaos, bloodshed, and destroy South African blacks economically. And did you know that "evil" Dow Chemical funds and supports many educational facilities nearly if not entirely devoted to the advancement of black Africans? A Dow pullout

would leave these schools and institutions empty. Is that positive protest? I'd say not. Maybe we should weigh all the information before making disinvestment our own anti-black policy. Money • Two weeks ago 1 complained about feeling like a piece of anti-matter in the eyes of the administration because 1 am basically broke. It got worse. Now I have no place to live because 1 couldn't get an apartment without being registered. I will live in a shoebox and eat hot gravel. Then I found out that the chapel choir trip ran-up about a 35,000 bill. I didn't get mad, though, because I figured most of that money probably came from private donations, and the trip was some pretty good Hope College P.R. have to wonder just how many students couldv'e used some donated money to dig out of a hole — and aren't former students a school's best P R.? The worst part of the whole ordeal (entire ordeal — sorry. Mom) was when I heard someone say "If he can't pay the bills, he shouldn't be here. He's got no room to complain." and here, I say, is capitalism's ugliest creation: measuring worth via a pocketbook. Correct me if I'm wrong, but America si supposed to provide equal opportunites for all. Of course, it doesn't work — specifically because of attitudes like that one: I don't deserve a good education because I can't lay down cash for it. And you'll have a hard time convincing me your daddy's a great man because he's rich — in fact, I bet it would be easier for me to prove mine Is a great man because he strug-

gles a little. Of course, my dad has nothing to prove that can't be seen in the fact that I'd never suggest somebody doesn't deserve the best just because he can't afford it. You eat hot gravel, Armpit! The Black Coalition • I do not have any idea what it is to be black, so I won't pretend to. I do know, having worked in a primarily black neighborhood, what it is to have been completely misunderstood by blacks. I think that just such a misunderstanding occurred at the Air Jam, and I hope it can be resolved before it becomes bitter. I don't think for a minute that it was the intention of the "U.S.A. for Africa" masqueraders to ridicule blacks — and I think that is evidenced by the fact that many of the students involved were shocked at having upset members of the Black Coalition. I'm sure that had the members of the group realized their actions were a violation of Black Civil Rights, they wouldn't have done it. Certainly ignorance of the law is no excuse — but your rather sharp outcry against them seems just as absent of Christian principle as what you charge them with. (What happened to discussion and forgiveness?). As for perpetrating negative black stereotypes: A person 'would have to be completely out of touch not to recognize the contributions of blacks to the arts. Mimicking them is not neccessarily negative — the Air J a m m e r s panned Bruce Springsteen, too. What of that? And I know I've seen Eddie Murphy imitating Stevie Wonder, and singing a song with the lyrics

period? Under no circumstance should the Holocaust be forgotten — ever. But to continue to feed the hatred that exists in the survivors and eventually to their children and grandchildren is almost as, if not more, unthinkable. Man's inhumanity to m a n t h a t o c c u r e d in the Holocaust is in the past - there is no reversing what happened. The only hope that this never happens again lies in future generations showing concern and care for each other - and not by throwing past mistakes into the faces of the innocent.

But just so people can't call be a cynic (which I am but that doesn't matter), I'd like to open my reader's eyes to some great things at Hope: Jon Huiskens, Registrar, man of perpetual pipe and smile. He loves cutting red tape, which is a beautiful sight.

Thank you to all professors who thank us for coming to class, and finally, Dr. and Mrs. Fredrickson, my head residents who go to every event that anyone in College East is involved in — it's nice to feel like Mom and Dad are there, even al school. Have a great summer. Be safe. Hi-Ho •

STATISTICS YOU CAN USE Foreign Students Are Earning More Doctorates Foreign students are earning an increasing number of doctorates from U.S. universities. Between 1973 and 1983, the number of doctorates awarded to non-U.S. citi/.enjincreased by nearly 12 percent. Those awarded to U.S^citizens decreased by 9 percent, even though the number of 25- to 34-year-olds doubled during this period. Following are some important facts about foreign recipients of doctorates:

Citizenship of Doctorate Recipients by Field, 1983

Education Humanities Biological & Health Sciences

• In 1983, nearly one-fifth of the doctoral recipients from universities in the United States were non-U.S. citizens (5,767 out of 31,19(3), whereas in 1973 they represented less than one-sixth of all Ph.D.'s (5,170 out of 33,775).

Social Sciences

• Fhe proportion of doctorates awarded to non-U.S citizens in 1983 wa^highest in the fields of engineering (54 percent), mathematics (37 percent), and agricultural sciences (35 percent). In 1973, the comparable proportions were 35 percent for engineering, 21 percent for mathematics, and 37 percent for agricultural sciences.

Physics 6c Astronomy Agricultural Sciences

• Mon-U.S. citizens earned almost three times more doctorates in, 1983 than did all U.S. ethnic minorities combined (5,767 versus 2,027). • Most foreign doctorate recipients enter the U.S. labor force upon graduation. In 1983, 93 percent of permanent visa holders and 58 percent of temporary visa holders did so. lhi> inofilc UHh cmiulcii hu the Division of Polui/ Anali/<i< ami Kc xiinh.

"she was the best candidate and choice tor that position." Besides his feelings about her qualifications, DeLooff also felt that he could not run for office because he was going to be gone during the spring semester of next year. During his speech he m a d e that known, stating it as one ol ^is reasons for withdrawing, but he also stated that he had challenged p r e s i d e n t i a l candidate Leigh to do the same. Leigh will also be in Washington second semester. DeLooff feels that this action "most definately did" affect Leigh's chances at the presiden cv. "Whitnev was quite rightly perturbed with m e , " slated DeLooff. Imparting more of his political wisdom, DeLooff feels that Brat was helped greatly by several factors.

" DeLooff also feels that the "ticket" concept where Brat, Follett. and Vander Meer cam-

paigned together also helped Brat. "They plugged him. but in the end were a sacrifice fly (since they did not win and he did)." stated DeLooff. Clifford is as fired up about his new position as he was when giving his speech. One of his m a j o r goals is elimination of the parking fee imposed upon students. He wants to find out "why students a r e charged extra and find out how to go about allieviating t h a t . " Clifford feels that the parking issue is one which affects a "large amount of the c a m p u s " and therefore should be a prime goal. " W e n e e d to b u i l d u p creditability." stated Clifford, "to gain more influence." He feels that working within the committees and boards credibly will go along way to gaining power. He does feel, however, that there needs to be more student representation on the governing boards and c o m m i t t e e s although he does not support the 50-50 Plan. "We have to be able to speak up and be taken seriouslv. We

also have to look at thinp realistically and work with p* pie," he says.

IF YOU'VE JUST GRADUATED INTO DEBT, HERTS HOW TO GET OUT. If you've gone to college on a National Direct Student Ix)an or a Guaranteed Student Loan or a Federally Insured Student Loan made after October 1, 1975, here's a great way to pay them off. Get the Army to help you d o it. Instead of taking a long, long time paying back that student loan, you spend a short time in the Army, learning a skill, and possibly even accumulating additional money for college (like a graduate degree) via Army CoUege Fund.


If you qualify, each year you serve reduces your indebtedness by one-third, or $1,500, whichever a m o u n t is greater. A 3-year enlistment eliminates your debt. It's worth looking into. See your Army Recruiter.
