The area surrounding Peale Science Center w a s closed off today by a fire line while the fire was dealt with by Holland's fire squad.

Minor fire forces classes to end A fire on the fourth floor of Peale canceled classes yesterday afternoon. N o w that the renovation of Peale has started, workers have begun to gut the building. Fortunately, new materials have not

yet started to be put up, so the minimal smoke odors will dissipate as the damaged portions are removed and vents kick in. ' T h e cause of the fire has not yet been officially determined," said Tom Renner, associate vice presi-

dent for public relations. ' T h e r e was some work being done in that area earlier in the day involving a cutting torch. There was insulation smoldering in the ceiling. "We should be grateful for that kind of response in a general fire

alarm like that. All the signs of having a working fire alarm system were there, and at the same time the fire department was only a block away because they were doing a training drill at the old Lincoln Elementary School."

Hope students come out in 'Time to Serve' Katie Taylor SENIOR STAFF REPORTER

Thomas Edison once said, "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." However, there were approximately 500 Hope students who seized an opportunity to serve their community, and in some cases, it meant getting a little dirty. It was all for a cause known as ' T i m e to Serve," which look place Saturday. Diana Breclaw, Hope's assistant dean of students for residential life and student activities, was in c h a r g e of the event. A c c o r d i n g to Breclaw, "it was T H E thing to do this past weekend." Participants signed up for the volunteer effort during "New Student Orientation." Most were first-year students anxiously looking for a way to meet new people and to become familiar with the Holland community. In fact, more than half of the firstyear class showed up. However, not all of the volunteers were from the class of '07. Since it was the fourth year for ' T i m e to Serve," two seniors volunteered for the fourth year in a row.

Philo said, "1 decided to go because I was students took part at various sites around an OA leader this year, and by trying to gel the Holland area.

the freshmen to go, I became interested in getting involved in our community." The participants met in Maas on Saturday morning, where they were divided into groups of 8 to 12 and were sent to 48 different sites. The crews worked from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on projects that ranged from sorting clothing at the Holland Rescue Mission to cleaning up the beach at Dunton Park, to running a fan club for area middleschoolers with the Tulipanes festival. Philo was a leader of the group that went to "Warm Friend," a retirement home on 8lh Street. "We washed windows, served lunch and sundaes, cleaned up, and talked to the residents. We were also able to move out a resident and clean their travel bus," Philo explained. According to Philo, though tiring, the entire experience was very worth it. Not only did she meet "a lot of really cool people," but they also received plenty of compliments. "While we were cleaning the windows facing 8 ,h street, people from the community were telling us how great of a job we were doing, and to keep up the good work," commented Philo. Perhaps it is this positive feedback from t h e c o m m u n i t y that h a s c a u s e d t h e program's steady growth. It began in 2000

The department of English at Hope College will sponsor a marathon reading of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Return of the King" on Friday, Sept. 19, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. in the Pine Grove. The event will conclude the series of readings of "The Lord of the Rings," begun last year. R e f r e s h m e n t s will be available. Students, faculty, administrators, and members of the community are invited to sign up to read in 10-minute segments. Anyone wishing to sign up for a reading slot can do so by visiting the office of the English department. In the event of rain, the marathon will be held in Lubbers Loft, on the fourth floor of Lubbers.

De La Torre publishes book on Elian The exiled Cuban community's response during the Elian custody battle was all the more intense because the issue was not only political but also religious, according to a new book by Dr. Miguel De La Torre of the Hope College religion faculty. He considers the 1999-2000 controversy surrounding young Elian Gonzales as a reflection of the way that opposition to Fidel Castro's regime and subsequent residence in the U.S. have for exiled Cubans become a religious struggle—"la lucha"—against evil. He discusses how Exilic Cubans, once a marginalized group, have risen to power and privilege in the United States, a status that distinguishes them from other Hispanic groups in the nation, and the relationship of exile and religion to the process. "Living in exile is a sacrifice constituting a civic duty, representing a grander moral standing," De La Torre said. "Religion is understood as a moral mandate." Elian has connections to religion.

V^nchor Grant to promote interdepartmental work C A M P U S BEAT


Allison Schneider STAFF REPORTER

Fungi grow on skin, on trees, on breads, on fruits, on vegetables, on the ground, and in many other places. The moldy fungi penicillin became the first antibiotic. Other fungi, like portabella and morel mushrooms, are consumed by humans for their taste, and others, like psilocybin mushrooms, make the list of illicit drugs and have been known to kill people. Now the role of fungi in the ecosystem will be studied at Hope College thanks to a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. Dr. Thomas Bultman of the biology department has received a four-year grant of $885, 773 through the NSF's "Collaborative Research at Undergraduate Institutions" program. The grant is the largest sum ever given to Hope by the NSF. Along with Bultman,

this new fungi project will involve Dr. Janet Anderson of the math department. Dr. Kenneth Brown of the chemistry department. Dr. Debbie Swarthout of the biology department, and Dr. Christopher Schardl from the University of K e n t u c k y ' s dep a r t m e n t of plant pathology. ' T h e advantage of an interdisciplinary a p p r o a c h is that to better understand the ecological interaction we need to understand how the chemicals, or alkaloids, p r o d u c e d by the fungi are impacting other species, like the consumers of the grass and the consum-

ers of those consumers," Bultman said. The research will incorporate the five scientists' strengths and involve undergraduate students. A mathematical model will be made of the interactions in the food web involving the fungi, the alkaloid concentration of the fungi will be chemically and genetically analyzed, and how the fungi affect's host plants will be studied. The new Science Center will lend itself to integrating the various disciplines. ' T h e new Peale has been built with interdisciplinary science in mind. No longer are departments clustered on floors, but rather, faculty using c o m m o n instruments are clustered. The exploration of the fungal-plant system will involve work by biologists and chemists, and the new Peale will facilitate this in-

Free files may incur fines Anjey Dykhuis MANAGING EDITOR

The Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) deals with issues of pirating music and videos and the sharing of copyrighted files online. The Motion Pictures Association of America (MPAA) and the Recording I n d u s t r i e s A s s o c i a t i o n of America (RIAA) both operate under the DMCA and are exercising their rights under it by searching out unauthorized users of their data. Around the nation, college campuses are restricting access to sites like M o r p h e u s , K a z a a , and Audiogalaxy in an effort to keep students from downloading copyrighted materials on the campus network. Individual students at other colleges h a v e been prosecuted for holding these materials. Hope and its students have not yet been hit with any papers under the DMCA, but would like to remind students that it is illegal to possess copyrighted music or films on their computers without first purchasing it. "The sharing of copyrighted materials is against our policy," said Jeff Pestun, project manager in CIT. "If you have material on your computer you didn't purchase, chances

are you're violating copyright laws. When you come down to it, it's against the law, whether we like it or not." As music c o m p a n i e s and the RIAA continue to improve their methods of finding violators of the DMCA, it will become harder and harder to evade the consequences of possessing pirated music. Individuals can receive fines of up to 25,000 dollars and face possible jail time. "As we enter into the future with file sharing, especially with illegal files and pirated music, it's going to be a little scary because there will be consequences for it," said Andy Com. Residence Life Coordinator of Kollen hall. In the meantime, even though H o p e and its students have remained out of court despite many in the Hope community enjoying pirated files, CIT has received several notices from the RIAA that stud e n t s w e r e in v i o l a t i o n of the DMCA. The order is called "cease and desist," and after obtaining one, CIT will go to the student who is using the files and ask them to remove the file or files in question. No individual student information is released to the RIAA.

"However, if we were subpoenaed, w e ' d have to give student information to them," Pestun said. As file sharing comes more and more into the computer usage of the c o m m o n man, students must be more and more informed of the laws concerning it. We want to see a more active campaign to inform Hope students of the copyright law," Pestun said. "We don't block any kind of traffic. We've never been comfortable doing that. At this point, it's not really something we'd do. We just encourage students to inform themselves about the laws so they don't break them." Com also warns students of possible risks of file-sharing programs. "It's important for students to note that sometimes programs that are very popular for file-sharing also have what is called ad-ware or spy-ware built into them. What these programs do is share information about the user of that computer to a third party or distribute so many pop-up ads that you almost can't control it. "Sometimes these programs that seem like a lot of fun have some heavy shadows on them," Corn said.

cortimunity. It was helpful for students to be able to reflect on how they'd spent the day and to reinforce community service as a lifelong habit. Time to Serve was very successful in helping to get our new students to understand that they are now a part of a greater community," Breclaw said. It is clear that this program was

a success and benefitted everyone involved, from those who were assisted to those who met new people and had fun while serving the Holland area. In fact, several groups made arrangements to return to t h e i r s i t e s to h e l p with m o r e projects. Philo summarized, "It was a great experience and I recommend everyone at Hope do it at least once."

teraction," Bultman said. Bultman believes that the interdisciplinary approach of this research will help undergraduate students in the future. According to Bultman, the boundaries separating scientific fields are disappearing. "Integrating the different departments in multidisciplinary research will place our students into a multidisciplinary team that is studying a complex biological problem that requires multidisciplinary approaches. Much of what is being done today in biological research involves a multidisciplinary approach," Bultman said. Students for the fungi research project will be chosen in the same manner as they are normally chosen for summer research positions, according to Bultman. Students will be selected based on course work, motivation, desire, and CPA. If a student is interested in the fungi research, he or she should contact Bultman for more information.

Guest speaker promotes peace Erin L'Hotta STAFF REPORTER

There is no way to peacepeace is the way," prominent peace activist A.J. Muste once said. Muste, a Hope College graduate in 1905, is recognized for his dream of obtaining peace in a harsh unloving world. On Tuesday, Sept. 9 Hope College will hold the 18^ annual A.J. Muste Peace Lecture, featuring a guest speaker who honors Muste's vision of peace. The free lecture, held at 3:30 p.m. in Winants Auditorium of G r a v e s H a l l , will f e a t u r e Earlham College's Professor of Peace and Global Studies Tony Bing. Bing w o r k e d at Earlham College and all a c r o s s the world devoting his life to prom o l i n g peace in the M i d d l e East, " W e are currently living in a c u l t u r e of war that is destructive of the values in which Muste and I believe. My goal is to m a k e a case for j u s t i c e and show how our government is not heading in a peaceful direction," Bing said. Bing currently serves as Clerk of the National E x e c u t i v e C o m m i t t e e of P e a c e b u i l d i n g Unit of the American Friends Service Committee, and served as Executive Director of the Peace Studies Association, where he received the title of Peace Educator of the Year in 1992. Bing retired in 2001 from Earlham College, a small independent college associated with the Religious Society of Friends, after teaching peace and global studies for 31 years. In 1967 Bing integrated his

views of international peace into the classrooms of Earlham College and Hope College. He exercised the idea of promoting peace in the Middle East by taking a group of students, many from Hope, to the American University of Beirut their junior year. Throughout the entire trip, students promoted peace by teaching and living among the Israeli and Palestinian communities. "The program is dedicated to an understanding of the nature of conflict, the role of violence and nonviolence in conflict situations," Bing said. "Most of the students who were involved in the program regarded it as their most important academic experience in college." In 1982, B i n g founded Earlham College's Peace Studies Program in J e r u s a lem, The Great Lakes Tony Bing Jerusalem Program and Northern Ireland Peace Studies Program. Hope was among one of the first four c o l l e g e s to be i n v o l v e d in Bing's peace promoting programs. Hope professors Don Luidens, Larry Penrose and Laurie Engle helped lead these programs to success. Bing exhibited a great debt of gratitude to Hope College for helping his success is spreading international peace and he eagerly awaits his arrival to campus. "I am looking f o r w a r d to coming to Hope and feel deeply honored to be chosen by the Muste Committee," said Bing. "He is one of my heroes and was a great inspiration to me in my spiritual development."

Step out of your shell; step up to some action Last week, 1 commented on the members of this community changing the face of Hope College and Holland as we know them. I also said that this type of column was a yearly thing for the editor-in-chief to write. This week, I would like to submit a column on another annual topic: apathy. It has been very evident in the past that the vast majority of Hope students care about nothing but their schoolwork. Oh, it may be true that there are the select few who will venture out of their shell from time to time to further their real-world learning experience, but for the most part, the population on this campus is content to sit in Our apathy should their rooms, tending to their be at the top of our own business. list of things to This attitude, whether it be apathy or simple selfchange this year. preservation, damages many campus activities designed to promote dialogue or discussion. The attendance at meetings of RISE, the Sexuality Round Table, and even last year's dialogues on race are sparse at best. How can we expect to learn in a diverse community of students if we refuse to make the effort to show up at these events? The war of attendance attrition does not end at these discussions. Events in the arts, whether they be student concerts or recitals or presentations of GPS or VWS, only those who are required to attend for a class usually devote their time. The lack of attendance at these events is sad because of the caliber of performances that are showcased. Very often, the featured performers are widely known for their talent, and to have them visit a campus as small as Hope's is a valuable opportunity. As I have already said, this year could be the year to change many things at Hope College, and I think that our traditional apathetic attitude should be at the top of our list. So, to achieve this end, attend a concert, or show up at the next RISE meeting. Get out of your shell and start having discussions with people who think differently outside of the confines of your room. You may just end up finding something that you really like, or change your mind on an issue.

How can we expect to learn in a diverse community of learners if we refuse to make the effort to show up at events?

To the editor: Concerning your comments in the 8/27 edition of the Anchor, 1 both agree and disagree. I agree with your implication that Hope College needs to change. I don't a g r e e with h o w you think we should change: namely, changing toward the goal of tolerance. Now, before everyone reading this gets their blood pressure up, let me present a couple of issues. First, let's consider loaded words, full of emotion and so often used, perhaps abused. Then, let's think about the specific loaded word "tolerance." Perhaps I don't understand what you mean by the loaded words you use. You write about community, c o o p e r a t i o n , g r o w t h , diversity, sexuality, "an open mind," tolerance, and "a community of educated adults." These words come up in discussions quite often, but what is the actual definition behind them? Many people have some sort of definition (more of just a mere notion, really) from the connotations and implications used by those speakers who most often and

themselves "tolerant") are, in fact " i n t o l e r a n t . " T h u s , using this former meaning, "tolerance" is a self-refuting misnomer. If by tolerance you mean something akin to the latter, I am more willing to agree. I think people should respect each other with courtesy while paying attention to what others say. Now, do I have what 1 consider to be a better suggestion? Yes. I think Hope College should change toward the goals of truth and love. I see these as higher aspirations, yet all the more difficult and by no means easy. Consider these and the other words I've said with respect to their own load, as "truth" and "love" are themselves loaded words. D o I think that there are similarities between some of your loaded words and your goals and my loaded words and goals, especially "truth" and "love"? Yes. Are the further considerations of these issues outside the scope of a single editorial? Yes. —Daniel

most loudly use the words. But does this mean that these speakers are correct? I don't think so. More specifically, and as an example, let me ponder what you mean by the loaded word "tolerance." Do you mean something to the effect of that anyone's truth is equal to anyone else's and that all options in pretty much everything are equally acceptable (which seems rather relativistic to me)? Or do you mean something more akin to what I think of as just plain respect, where we do listen to each other but are still allowed to say to the other "You're wrong"? If you mean the former, there is an important reason I can't agree with the goal of tolerance. This meaning of tolerance implies that it is itself a self-refuting misnomer. Consider this. Group A wants everyone to be "tolerant." Group A considers themselves "tolerant" and Group B "intolerant." If A wants B to be "tolerant" and thinks that B must change from their "intolerance," A has in effect become "int o l e r a n t " of B ' s " i n t o l e r a n c e . " Therefore, A (who considered

Sporting goods Wilderness Oupost only moments from Hope The Outpost of Holland was established in 1972. Today, the Outpost of Holland offers some of the finest selection in men's, women's and children's sport and leisure apparel, technical apparel, and both technical and casual footwear. Also, the Outpost stocks quality equipment and accessories for mountain climbing, backpacking, camping, and travel. Linda Parker, general manager of the Outpost, says that "the Outpost specializes in many different areas these being, kayaks, canoes, hiking boots, camping equipment, backpacks, and technical outerwear." As a technical-specialty business, maintaining an expert staff has always been the primary focus of the company. When asked what sets the Outpost apart from other sporting good stores in Holland, Parker said, ' T h e wide variety of inventory and the staff who are knowledgeable about the products they sell." When Parker was asked why she thought that the Outpost was a good place for Hope students to shop, she said "We offer the popular trends in outerwear, and we are the only place in Holland to offer North Face apparel. If students are planning trips, we can assist them on things they may need for an outdoor trip."

Quick Eats Around Town Tired of the food here on campus? Or maybe missed lunch because of a class and wanted to find somewhere to grab a quick bite to eat that's not too expensive? Here are a few other options for you that are in walking distance from campus and wont cost you a pretty penny. Quick subs from Quizno's For a quick bite to eat, stop into the mainstream fast-food chain of Quizno's located in downtown Holland on East Eighth Street. "Students who come in and provide their Hope College ID cards will receive a $ 1.50 discount on any small sub combo," says Kenzie Marks of Quizno's. If that's not enough, try the new mesquite chicken combo for only $5.69. Quinzo's is open every day except Sunday. Not simply subs If you want more selection in a sub shop, try right across the street at Subs-N-More. For $5.75, you can get the seven-inch sub combo deal with a medium pop and choice of potato chips. Meanwhile, grab a slice of pizza to go along with your sandwich. Subs-N-More is also a great place for you to hang out with your friends on the weekend, which is open to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m. Sundays. Hot dogs at hot prices If sub sandwiches aren't your thing, then why not try a small hot dog stand called Gregordog.

"Every Tuesday night is Three Dog Night, three 'gregors,' {hot dogs) bag of chips and a soda for just $5," says owner Greg Vandenberg. Gregordog is also a convenient walk from the campus located at 210 College Ave. and is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday (to 9 p.m. Fridays). While you are at Gregordog, check out vintage signs and old newspaper headlines. Gregordog is a unique and cozy place for a

Waverly Ave., is the closest off-campus theater, and prices there are $5.75 before 6 p.m. and after 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturday. The main-show evening prices are $7.50 Monday through Thursday (after 6 p.m.) and $8 Friday thru Sunday. The Star Theatre movie complex is located at James Street and U.S. 31, directly south of the Westshore Mall and adjacent to the Holland Outlet Mall. Prices there are very close to those at the competing Holland 7, but there are no late shows at the Star. Find a Good Read at the Treehouse So are you new to the Hope College campus?

Great Impressions Shared art exhibit makes its way to campus Friday Local art galleries feature Dutch roots Jenny Cencer STAFF REPORTER

In collaboration with the Holland Museum, the Holland Area Arts Council, Freedom Village, Grand Valley State University, and Hope College's DePree Art Gallery, "Shared Impressions: Contemporary Dutch Prints" will be opening Friday. Each gallery will be separately fej.turing 130 prints from the c o l l e c t i o n of C y r i l L i x e n b e r g , a s c u l p t o r and graphic artist from Amsterdam, whose compilation consists of

approximately 500 Dutch prints in total. Lixenberg studied at Ecole Des Beaux Arts of Paris as well as London's Central School of the Arts and Crafts. He specializes in twodimensional works crafted from m e d i u m s such as a l u m i n u m , Plexiglas and steel. ' T h e r e ' s no absolute values, no absolute truth in art," Lixenberg said. "You go from your experience." Lixenberg's immense structures have been displayed in a variety of venues throughout Amsterdam, Ann Arbor, London, and New York. Currently a resident of Amsterdam, Lixenberg will be attending several showings of his collection throughout Holland.

The showcase will feature the Dutch contribution to artistic style over the past fifty years. Current residents of Holland and patrons of Grand Valley State University, James and Donna Brooks recently purchased and generously donated Lixenberg's amassed collection of Dutch prints to GVSU's permanent showcase. The Dutch artistic movements of style will be emphasized, including works from artists such as Victor Vasarely, Barbara Hepworth, and Karel Appel. In addition, DePree will host an opening reception featuring Lixenberg from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 12. All are encouraged to attend the reception.

Installation pieces are created to fill a n entire gallery. Until September 27, A n n e Mondro's Visceral Opulence will grace both the walls and floor of the Holland Area Arts Council with its presence.

The Holland Area Arts Council has been keeping busy. Besides its involvement with the collaborative Shared Impressions exhibit showing in DePree Gallery. HAAC has an installment of its o w n . In HAAC's Eighth Street gallery from now until Sept. 27 is Visceral Opulence, an installation by A n n e Mondro, a jewelry designer and metal-smith. By definition, in an installation, the art is actually made for the space that it is displayed in and will use that space in its entirety for the artist's work. This is one of the things that helps the decision process in which artists who propose their work will actually have it fea-

tured in the HAAC gallery. "We try to keep it pretty varied, to have a lot of different art forms in the room," said Jason Kalajainen, HAAC Executive Director. "We try to have it edgy and different." It is clear from the name of this exhibit that Mondro's installation is no exception to the rule. Viscera are the body's internal organs and opulence is something extraordinarily interesting to the eye. The installation's central piece is a large metal work, which is then surrounded by smaller pieces made mainly with felt. "The felted pieces represent, in my mind, organs, tissues, that sort of thing," Kalajainen said. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is free of charge. All are welcome to stop by.
