S t u d e n t s j a m f o r a cause Around 200 students filled M a a s auditorium after the Kletz comedian last F r i d a y n i g h t f o r the a n n u a l Multiple Sclerosis Dance. T h e event, now in its eighth year, is sponsored by the Centurian fraternity and the Kappa Delta Chi sorority. T h e estimated $ 3 5 0 in proceeds will be donated to the M u l tiple Sclerosis Foundation.

"The music and the dance went really well," said Kristi Steketee '98, one of the organizers of the dance. "We handed out about $650 in prizes and everyone had a great time." A c c o r d i n g to S t e k e t e e , a t t e n dance was "about average" for the event, although last years' d a n c e drew record crowds.

Japan N i g h t stars M e i j i G a k u i n s t u d e n t s T h e 15 exchange students f r o m Meiji G a k u i n University stepped into the spotlight yesterday at the annual "Japan Night" in M a a s Auditorium. Dressed in brightly-colored traditional garb, the students o f f e r e d vivid snapshots of their native land. "Americans may have stereotypes of Japan, but most have never actually seen o r e x p e r i e n c e d the c u l t u r e , " said Yushi T a d o k o r o , a Meiji Gakuin e x c h a n g e student. Japan Night featured interactive and educational glimpses of Japanese culture. Each participant received a " g o o d i e b a g " filled with materials to help them participate in the program. O n e segment demonstrated hatmaking through the art of origami, or paper folding. Each attendee was able to t r a n s f o r m their piece of newspaper into a Japanese hat. Participants w e r e also helped to make toy rubber-band guns, called "waribashi teppou," out of c h o p sticks, sending rubber bands shooting around the auditorium. The Japanese students then

taught the audience four traditional Japanese children's songs, one for each season. Songs centered around a symbol central to a specific season: cherry blossoms for the spring, the sea f o r the summer, red dragonflies for autumn, and New Year's festivities for the winter. Although the sounds seemed strange at first, s o o n all v o i c e s b l e n d e d in the simple choruses. T h e night wrapped u p with a lesson in Japanese traditional dances, with the entire audience soon following along enthusiastically. The show drew rave reviews f r o m students in attendance. "This night is important because many of us don't know much about Japanese culture," said A n a Caracuel, Spanish Native Assistant. " W e need to learn f r o m other cultures." The program was completely planned by the students f r o m Meiji Gakuin University in Japan, a "sister s c h o o l " of H o p e for nearly 30 years. Every spring, Hope also sends a group of students on a sixw e e k p r o g r a m at Meiji Gakuin.

BIKES from I their rooms and never leave it outside at a rack. Bikes are being stolen at all times of the day and night, although sawing through U-locks is more c o m mon at night." Public Safety has alerted their foot and bicycle patrols to be extra wary f o r thieves at the racks, but students may be the best preventive force. " T h e s e people may be collegestudent age, or at least close enough in age to appear that they o w n the bike as they ride it a w a y " Terpstra said. "Students need to be on the alert f o r p e o p l e that s e e m to be

hanging around bike racks for unusual periods of time." Public Safety is looking at different types of bicycle racks that will a c c o m m o d a t e mountain bikes, and w a y s to create m o r e storage space inside residence halls. But it will lake time to investigate and purchase mountain-bike friendly racks. In the meantime, students should be alert and cautious to the theft problem. "Students need to be aware that t h i e v e s are o u t t h e r e , a n d t h a t they're looking for mountain bikes," Terpstra said.

Jansen and Pihlaja see as their mission to inform students what is going on in the campaigns, and to register students to vote. According to the " m o t o r voter" bill enacted by Clinton, students' college address is considered to be their " p e r m a n e n t residence" o n c e they have lived there for 30 days. Therefore, all students 18 or older can register to vote in Holland. "It is inconceivable to expect that a student go home five states to vole on a Tuesday afternoon, or apply for an absentee ballot," Jansen said. In an with the Hope Republicans. the Hope Democrats will be giving presentations to inform students, especially first-year students, that they can vole in Holland. For t h e m , seeing the President just added to their enthusiasm. " [ C l i n t o n ] has d o n e w o n d e r f u l t h i n g s in o f f i c e , " s a i d L i a T i n k e l m a n ( ' 9 6 ) .

Dear Editor, This letter is in response to Dave Clausen's article "Without a Net." Based upon the recent crash of A O L and the swelling number of Internet users, he predicts the demise of the Internet. In his conclusion, he states that, "We would be a lot better off avoiding the snare of the Net entirely." First of all, the crash of A O L has nothing to do with the reliability of the Internet. A O L is an Internet provider, that is, they just provide a gateway for the everyday user to get onto the Internet. For example, CIT is Hope College's Internet provider. Thus when A O L crashed, an access way to the Internet was closed, but the Internet functioned normally (in fact, it probably functioned a tad better.)

As for the swelling number of Inlemet users thai will supposedly s w a m p the Internet until it dies, there is p e r h a p s s o m e , but most likely very little validity in this fear. S i n c e its i n t r o d u c t i o n as t h e ARPANET, the use of the Internet has exploded, but the Net has adapted just fine. Based upon the past and present performance of the Internet, there is no reason to assume that the Internet will meet its demise in the near future. Due to its data protocol (i.e. TCP/IP), the Internet is undoubtedly the fastest, most durable, and if done right, most secure publicly available global communications network ever implemented. Indeed, the ARPANET, and thus the Internet, was designed to function after a nuclear holocaust — ask that from

Sure, but so does the library. T h e Internet is just one of many ways of communicating and obtaining information; the existence of the Internet does not negate or threaten other ways of communication (e.g. the newspaper.) Yet, the Internet is a very powerful communications tool and thus refusing to master its ways may leave one in the dust of those who know. M a t t B a r t o n ('97) J e f f r e y O e g e m a ('97)
