I.V. gets full-time staff worker by Cynthia Keip features editor InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, a national Christian organization on Hope's campus, has begun the new school year with several changes. One major change includes having a full-time staff worker instead of a part-time one, as they have had for the past few years. Joel Perry, InterVarsity's (IV) new full-time campus staff worker, joined the group just a few weeks ago. Perry will have a wide range of responsibilities, mainly to offer encouragement and guidance to the student leaders of IV. "My job is primarily to provide training and discipleship for those people who are in leadership," Perry said. "Hopefully I am giving them skills they can use to lead the chapter." Focusing on guiding the students, Perry will help them lake leadership with things such as Bible studies and prayer meetings in their chapter of InterVarsity al Hope. Lisa Zoelewey ('94), the campus chapter president, sees Perry helping out in other ways. She said that having Perry as a full-time staff worker "really helps out because he can help us do our follow-up with the people who signed up al the Activities Fair and the people who came to our new student outreach (NSO) event—the pizza party." Besides contacting students who have shown an interest in

InterVarsity, Perry will be able to help the leadership group, offering extra encouragement and support when schoolwork becomes overwhelming. "A full-time staff worker can be there for us all the time," said Zoctcwey. "That extra support is what will get us through and help us grow as a group." After graduating from Grand Valley State University, where he double- majored in history and Spanish, Perry received his Masters of Divinity at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in D e e r f i e l d , 111. Perry has also spent if three years working with the Salvation Army. InterVarsity started off the new school year with a pizza party in the Kletz. According to Zoetewey, many students have not known about IV in the past few years. T o help publicize their pizza party, some members went door-to-door to personally invite students to the event. "One of the things we wanted to do was make sure that nobody can get out of Hope without knowing that InterVarsity exists," Zoetewey said. The pizza party had a turnout of about 75 students, which was more

than expected. At the party was the crowning of the Pizza King and Queen, won by Phil Velderman ('96) and Jennifer Black ('96). Steve Petrocljc ('96) and Teresa Friedrich ('96) received $10 gift certificates to Jacob's Ladder. This semester InterVarsity has. also changed its meeting lime and place to Friday nights at 8:30 p.m. in the Maas conference room. The group hopes that these changes will allow more students to b e c o m e involved with InterVarsity a n d not conflict withotheractivities and homework. "It seemed like a lot of students, eit h e r b e c a u s e of Joel Perty studies or because they had exams that were scheduled in the evenings, weren't able to come consistently on a week night," Perry said. After each Friday night meeting, InterVarsity will also be having activities such as bowling, a scavenger hunt, a popcorn party, miniature golf or volleyball. The socials will provide students with something to do on a Friday night. In addition, InterVarsity is changing its orientation to be more mixed. Along with the traditional

"We moved in here for a reason and it was certainly not so we could go to sleep every night at 9:00!" Complaints like this from Justin Nottingham ('95), are a common cry in both Kollen and Phelps Halls. Many students in these facilities are confused and angry about the plans to enforce quiet hours on a stricter basis for the 1992-1993 academic year. Quiet hours in these halls were temporarily decided during the summer by Hope College staff and then finalized within each residential community when students returned to campus last week. O r i g i n a l l y , quiet hours in Kollen and Phelps were from 9 p.m. until 9 a.m., and presently they are from 10 p.m. until 10 a.m. during the school week and from 11 p.m. until 11 a.m. on the weekends. Some of the complaints among the students in these halls have to do with what they consider to be ambiguous and inconsistent aspects of the quiet hour policies. Students have also complained about feeling invaded and shortchanged by the new stricter enforcement of these policies. Members of the Student Development staff, however, disagree with some students who feel the enforcement of quiet hours acts as a detriment. "When deciding upon policies.

as the Dean of Students, I am concerned with two student rights: the right to study and the right to sleep," explained Richard Frost. Robin D i a n a , D i r e c t o r of Housing and Residential Life, agrees with Frost in the belief that the right to study prevails over the right to entertain 24 hours a day. "We are trying to break away from the stereotypical 1950s dorm, so to speak, in the sense of students only using that facility as a place to rest their heads at night," explained Diana. "At Hope College we want our residence halls to be equipped with an environment where living and learning can be incorporated," she said. In an attempt to further promote a healthy academic environment in these halls, the school is planning on launching a pilot program series entitled, "A Positive Outlook at Success." The goals of this program are to create a better academic environment and to make academic assistance more readily available for students. The program's agenda will include speakers dealing with a wide variety of topics including academic support, career planning, and stress management. "We are gearing toward better learning with an emphasis on getting through college, as opposed to just hanging out and getting by," stated Kollen Resident Director

Search for commencement speaker to begin soon by Stephanie Gricr associate editor Although c o m m e n c e m e n t may seem faraway, some members of the Hope community are already beginning the traditional search for a speaker. Later this month, a small group of administrators, faculty and students will come together to discuss possible orators. Heading this year's committee will be faculty member Elliot Tanis, along with Provost Jacob N y e n h u i s and Hope C o l l e g e President John Jacobson. Several members of the senior class will serve on the committee as well, in order to add input from the student body. "The students who will be helping us with the search will most likely be elected officials from Student Congress and Mortar Board," Jacobson said. ' T h e s e students have already earned the confidence of their fellow classmates, as is evidenced by their election to these positions." The committee will be looking for a speaker who meets three basic qualifications. First, the speaker should have a widely recognized name and be a respected public figure; second, this individual should have some tie or background connection to Hope, and perhaps most importantly, the individual should have something

interesting to say. "Thesequalifications were set into place only two years ago," Jacobson said. "Before that time, the committee always selected a faculty member to deliver the commencement address." In 1989, Student Congress president Tom Kyros suggested that a more prestigious speaker would enhance the noteworthiness of future commencement exercises. His recommendations were implemented, and in recent years such well-known persons as Bruce Van Hoorst and Robert Schuller have spoken at the event. "I would like to ask this year's committee to revisit the question of possibly finding a faculty member to speak al commencement," Jacobson continued. T m not altogether certain that such prestigious speakers are necessary." Jacobson cited cost as the primary problem in bringing such an orator to campus. "The graduates are the real focus of the day," he explained. "Families are coming to see their graduate walk across the stage to receive his or her diploma; not to hear a deep, lengthy speech. Thus, the presence of such a speaker is not as fully appreciated and the cost of obtaining them is not worthwhile."

Hope to suspend 99 students Stephanie Grier Did the headline printed above grab your attention? Did you find yourself suddenly interested, your curiosity drawing your eyes further down into this article? If you did, you are not alone. When the above headline first appeared in The Anchor on March 8,1968, it drew the attention of Hope administrators, trustees, and students alike. The reasons behind the original story are almost as many and varied as its consequences, but perhaps the most interesting item to note is that the power behind the headline still exists. It still catches the eye and the breath of the average reader, and causes the story to have a more powerful and widely reaching effect. The importance of a headline such as this becomes obvious when one considers the content possibilities for the story beneath it. For example, would the article be interesting if it disclosed that 99 Hope students had allowed their grade point averages to drop below the minimum required level and had been forced to withdraw? Perhaps, but it would very definitely appeal to more readers if these 99 students had been women storming the house of President John Jacobson demanding that they be allowed to participate in the Pull.

As this example illustrates, the power of the press to arouse curiosity, excitement, and sometimes even action on the part of its readers is extremely great. This power must therefore be used with utmost caution and care, in order that it should not be abused or mishandled. In the 1960s, the press began to realize its power to make changes. Reporters and editors learned that through their work on the part of the reader, they could force movements and alterations into place in an institution such as the government. All that was needed were some facts, a glaring headline, and a story well-written enough to make everyone upset. This technique of advocacy journalism reached its peak in the early 1970s, when two Washington Post reporters broke a series of stories that eventually brought attention to the Watergate affair and toppled a president. Although this sort of journalism is not thoroughly bad, it cannot be as effective as a less radical, more objective style in which the emotions of an audience are not as highly aroused. In other words, perhaps a more unemotional method of conveying a set of facts would serve better to allow the reader to decide for himself what is important to him and what to do about it. For example, if a story about women storming the president's

State of the College '92 by Greg Brown c a m p u s editor The slate of the college address delivered to the faculty, secretarial/clerical,physicalplantand administrative staff by Hope College President John H. Jacobson struck on several changes in the life of the college. The address included news about changes in Hope College's student diversity. "I am pleased that we have achieved an increase in minority enrollment," Jacobson said. "Another encouraging recent development is the signing of a cooperative agreement between Hope College and Clark Atlanta University," Jacobson said. Clark Atlanta was recently created by the merger of two historically black institutions in Atlanta, Georgia. Thisagreement will eventually enable students from both institutions to spend a semester or year as an exchange student. This agreement would also allow faculty to spend May, June and summer terms teaching at Clark Atlanta. A l s o a n n o u n c e d w a s the agreement of Reverend John Lee to serve on H o p e ' s Board of Trustees. "John Lee is the founding pastor of a Korean-American Reformed Church in Philadelphia," Jacobson said. "Through him we will establish a mutually beneficial contact with the Korean-American community. Jacobson also discussed the college's investment policy. "In May of this year, the Board of

Trustees adopted an investment policy governing the investment of our endowment." "The investment policy addresses important technical aspects of the way in which the endowment will be handled," Jacobson said. "It does not address social questions such as investment in gambling and liquor companies or the range of issues regarding South Africa, those social questions are addressed by existing Board resolutions." Jacobson also announced a grant from the Teagle Foundation of New York City which will enable the college to bring onto campus visiting scholars to participate in departmental reviews. "The grant from Teagle will give us the rare opportunity to see o u r s e l v e s as o t h e r s see u s , " Jacobson said. President Jacobson further addressed the financial situation of Hope. "I want to report to you that Hope College finished the 19911992 fiscal year in the black." He also stated that the reviews by outside academics will help the college to identify ways of being as good as possible rather than meeting minimum standards. Jacobson concluded his speech with his vision for Hope in the future. % "Our college community is notable for the nuturance and stimulation it provides for its students." Ours is an inclusive community, welcoming people of many n a t i o n s and b a c k g r o u n d s , " Jacobson said. "It is a community that values and nurtures the spiritual life of its members."

home were written and placed in such a way that it drew the attention of the audience and caused great excitement or . anger, the administration might well be forced to consider the question of whether or not women should be allowed to participate in the Pull. The newspaper has then achieved something on the part of its audience. However, if the audience were terribly angry about women being in the Pull anyhow, they could still do something about the situation without the help of the newspaper. It is people who must make the change for themselves, after all. The newspaper is only a means. Since the responsibility for change ultimately lies with the people, it is then the people who should be able to decide what is important to them. Advocacy journalism forces an issue on its audience and thus manipulates them into thinking that something might be more important than it is. If the audience is forced into this position, it may ultimately do more harm than good. For this reason, it becomes necessary for the press to assume responsibility in its content and ethical decision-making. Without such responsibility, a more chaotic and confused world could very well result.

S O U T H AFRICA Troops opened fire on demonstrating supporters of the African National Congress in South Africa Monday, killing 23 people and wounding 196 others. Soldiers in the black homeland of Ciskei began firing on the demonstrators as they marched in opposition to the homeland's military government. Experts are concerned about the implications of the attack, fearing that South Africa may be falling into a situation that may prevent further democracy talks between the ANC and the government. YUGOSLAVIA Shelling continues in Yugoslavia, even though the leader of the Serbian movement in Bosnia promised to put heavy guns under U.N. supervision by next Saturday. U.N. officials say that the city of Sarajevo could run out of food in three days if halted relief efforts are not resumed. SOMALIA The U.S. continued to airlift large quanitities of food into Somalia last week. However, problems in the city of Bardera have prevented the aid from reaching the community, where at least 50 people are dying daily. THE C A M P A I G N TRAIL Great campaigning efforts on the part of both American presiden tial candidates took place over Labor Day weekend; both men are touting themselves as heirs to Harry Truman's legacy. Each candidate spent time in key Midwestern states, speaking in "Truman-esque" terms about plain speaking and presidential leadership. FLORIDA Residents of South Florida began moving into tent cities during the weekend, where they were able to receive food, water, and shelter. Military officials said that the tents were home to 2,154 people by early Monday. THE W O R L D OF SPORTS Fay Vincent stepped down from his post as Major League Baseball commissioner last Thursday. Vincent, who had been under pressure from team owners, had previously vowed to remain in the position. The announcmem came after last week's owner's vote of 18-9 to remove the commissioner.

Students encouraged to run for student congress (Editor's note: The following letter was submitted to The Anchor as a "letter to the editor." It is reprinted here to inform the student body about the opportunities available to them and to aid in the governance of Student Congress as a very important and influential body on Hope's campus.) Dear student body. The Student Congress cabinet welcomes the Hope College student body to the 1992-93 school year. New academic years mean change and, in the case of student organizations, new challenges. Already this year we have been greeted by format and operational changes in both The Anchor and WTHS. The new logos and masthead we see on the outside are indicative of the exciting changes that have occurred inside. Not only will these developments enhance the experience of those involved directly in these organizations, they will improve the quality of life and serve as a source of pride for all Hope students. As a student body, we must be dedicated to see that such progress continues. In keeping with this goal, we are proud to list Student Congress as another organization that w i l l make positive changes throughout the year. T h e large size of the freshman class, important issues such as race relations and recycling, and the ever-increasing demand for student activities, all provide new challenges for our campus gover-

nance structure. Coping with these challenges will require new approaches to campus communication and leadership. This leadership MUST come from the student body. As the Student Congress cabinet, we are always looking for individuals who are dedicated to public service and interested in making a difference in their community. Over the past several years. Student Congress has evolved into a professional and powerful organization. The meetings are conducted in the Maas Conference Room, and the issues range from the very serious, such as campus spending and regulations, to the very exciting, such as choosing guests for the Speaker Series and Spring Fling. Contrary to what you may have heard. Student Congress is not controlled by the administration. We are an independent, student-run organization with budget authority of over $170,000. Our goal is to work with the administration, conveying student concerns in the best interest of the entire Hope College community. As a member of Student Congress, you will attend the weekly Congress meetings as well as serve on two or three governing boards and committees. On some of these committees, you will have an equal vote with some of the top administrators at Hope College. Moreover, weekly Congress meetings give you a chance to air your views, and those of your constituents, in the court of

public opinion. The result of these experiences is that you will not only have a say in many of the decisions that affect your life, but you will also be developing as a leader and contributing to the overall quality of life here at Hope College. The friends you will make, and the sense of pride you will feel from serving your community, will be with you for the rest of your life. We sincerely hope you will consider joining us on Student Congress. If you are interested in running, simply do the following: 1. Beginning September 7, obtain a candidate petition from the Student Congress office (in DeWitt Center across from WTHS). 2. Have the petition signed by twenty-five people from your district. 3. Return your completed petition to us by 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 14. 4. Campaign hard for the September 18 election! In the meantime, if you would like to speak with any of us about opportunities on Student Congress, just stop by the Student Congress o f f i c e any a f t e r n o o n , M o n d a y through Friday. W e wish you the very best in the coming election. Sincerely, . Holly Moore, President Joe Kuiper, Vice President Julie Meyer, Comptroller


Russians learn American culture at Hope by Julie Blair news editor

As every student knows, the transition from high school to college is a turbulent time filled with both excitement and anxiety, it is a tinjf to venture out; a lime to test personal strengths and weaknesses. Most of us can share our college successes and disappointmenis with family and friends by calling or driving home on weekends. For many, this close contact helps keep students sane during the first few weeks away from home. Butimaginebeing isolated from family and friends. Imagine being hundreds of miles away from home, thrown into a strange culture and surrounded by people who speak another language. Eleven courageous students chose to do just that, flying from Russia to attend school in America. As part of the Hope College Russian Program, they decided to spend a year away from their Moscow universities to learn about American culture. The Russian students participating in the program this year are: Alexander Azanov, Alexander Dmitrevsky, Sergei Kuzmin, Fedja Matvejev, Vyatcheslav Nickolaev, Paulina Rychenkova. Irina Rychkova, Anna Sazonova, Dmitry Shirshow, Dima Vasilenko and Tanya Yemelyanenko., Two years running, the Russian Program o f f e r s distinctive scholarships to a select group of academically talented students.

We looked for students with a wide range of interests who could deal with being away from home," said Richard Mezeske, the Russian student advisor. Mezeske called competition for the scholarships "fierce." Each student c o m p l e t e d a lengthy application, took English competency tests and wrote an essay. Those making the first cuts progressed to the interview rounds. Though the application process alone may sound like a traumatic experience, the Russians have good reason for moving: they want to improve their country. "This is a great opportunity. I will work hard and study hard," said Rychenkova, a physics major. "Every day in Russia is filled with problems. Maybe we can help when we come back." The Russian students devote themselves to their people and homeland, as the first generation of Russians coming of age in a free nation. Unlike the other exchange students, Olga Ananina , who came here through a Hope International Student scholarhip, will remain at Hope until graduation in 1996. She then plans to take U.S. business practices back to Russia. But thoughts of returning to Russia makes her uneasy. As hardships continue to plague Russia, Ananina worries her changing country will be unfamiliar when she returns home. Others share this fear, unable to reconcile their love for the old ways and passion for new freedom.

Etana shares human rights experience by Stephanie Grier associate editor Many Hope students were asked to consider the subject of human rights last week in a series of lectures sponsored by the political science department. Degefa Etana, a native of Ethiopia and a 1972 Hope graduate, addressed the topic of African political development in presentations directed toward several political science classes. Etana, who was imprisoned for four years under the communist regime in Ethiopia, asked students to consider their own freedoms and to compare them to the relative injustices found in many African

states. "Less than half of the population of Africa is considered free, or even partly free," Etana stated. "Most Americans do not comprehend what it feels like to be without most basic human rights, but these people live without them all of the time." Etana's own rights were seriously infringed upon several years after his graduation from Hope, when he was forced to accept a position as a provincial administrator within the communist regime. He was later accused of attempts to sabotage the government and was imprisoned shortly thereafter.

see ETANA page 8

" H o w can I go b a c k ? " Yemelyanenko asked. "It will be impossible to adjust." Yet, when times get tough here at Hope, returning to Russia sounds like a good alternative—living a new life in a new culture can challenge the strongest of students. Sometimes it's just plain overwhelming. "We cry a lot around here," Yemelyanenko admitted. Although the students cannot return home, they can seek support from their host families here in Holland. Introduced during a pre-college orientation, the Russians traded ideas on topics ranging from politics to peanut butter. "It was very interesting to learn what life (in Russia) is really like," said Carla Duryee, Azanov's host mother. "We were so curious...we peppered him with questions." The students, too, felt the orientation program was worthwhile. "I had a very good host family," Sasha Dmitrevsky said. "I could really talk to them." Host families are keeping the lines of c o m m u n i c a t i o n o p e n throughout the school year, hoping to help the students through these troublesome times. Though the past few weeks have been difficult for the new students, each day on campus gets easier. She hopes students will not be intimidated by Russian stereotypes. "We don't drink beer all the time and it doesn't snow in Russia all the time," she said. The more we meet people, the better we feel," Rychenkova said.

JOVE links Hope, NASA, Holland and the future by Scott Runyon editor-in-chief What do NASA, Hope College, Holland and the future have in common? The answer? They are connected by JOVE, or Joint Venture, a program initiated by a grant given by NASA to Michael Jipping, assistant professor of computer science. Jipping has received this grant from NASA to do research during the summers of the next three years in Virginia. The research involves developing some detailed computer systems, or tools, which will allow people from different places in the country or world to work at the same time on large computer software

programs. "With anything that is big enough to have more than one person working on it you raise the possibility of really messing up," Jippingexplained."Soanything you can do to make that team effort work more smoothly is really where it's at." Jipping believes the research has significance for the future. "Better tools to build more complex software means that the software is going to be more bug-free and the [space] shuttle is going to go up faster," Jipping said. "It's an efficiency issue. It's a reliability issue. It's an assistance issue so that the people who are going to use the tools can be more innovative." His research package will involve working with two or three

Two by Amber Toth staff reporter Rolling green valleys and towering Swiss Alps blanket the countryside. ancient stone churches lie huddled in coves and beautiful European statues stand frozen in parks. Usually, this type of scenery can only be found in tourist magazines. However, for Russell Floyd, associate professor of music, Charles Aschbrenner, professor of music, and Hope's- Symphonette Orchestra, it was a dream come true. Floyd, who conducts the Wind Ensemble, teaches theory classes and instructs private saxophone and clarinet lessons, found himself traveling to Europe this'summer with other Hope music students as the

Hope students during the summers. Jipping created a proposal this summer for what the software will do. Next he will create a prototype so that people can see what it looks like and how it functions. Jipping imagines himself in the future as the user of this technology, working with others on huge software programs. In this role he has thought about what he would want the technology to do. "I may want to have a real voice conference going on so that [my colleagues] could all talk together at the same time—over the computer network, not over the p h o n e , " Jipping said. "Or we could have a live video conference on the computer."

l Europe featured soloist of the group. The Hope College Symphonette Orchestra is a select group chosen as a touring orchestra. Every four years, the orchestra goes to Europe. Other years they have gone to California and the eastern United States. T o u r i n g and p e r f o r m i n g throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the orchestra not only witnessed beautiful scenery, but also the beginnings of many famous composers. "It had so much special meaning. It was terrific to visit Salzburg where Mozart grew up," Floyd said. "It was so wonderful going into the M o z a r t m u s e u m to see h i s worksheets and papers that he used when he was studying at an early age." According to Floyd, it was re-

markable seeing the method that Mozart studied, noting that it was similar to what Hope's music students use. "I admit that he was a genius, but he still went through the same routine of studying music like anyone else would," Floyd said. "He just took to it better and developed his style, but it was the same process." For Floyd, one highlight of the trip was visiting Vienna. According to him, Vienna is the center of art throughout the world. Floyd also had the experience of visiting the Opera House in Vienna and seeing his favorite orchestra, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. "It was the experience of being there that was so wonderful. It really opened your eyes," Floyd com-

mented. "You were able to see the beautiful countryside—the cities and churches. You could relate to the music. It was the same settings that the famous composers saw as they were writing their music." According to Floyd, it was a lesson in humility. "It was wonderful for me and the students. Walking around Vienna and hearing the various musicians playing the courtyard was humbling," Floyd said. ' T h e orchestra is very fortunate to have the means to travel abroad and play in another country. It was an unforgettable experience." However, the Symphonette Orchestra wasn't the only musical group traveling Europe. Charles Aschbrenner spent part of his summer in the hot and humid city of Geneva, Switzerland. Aschbrenner

teaches eurythmics, keyboard classes, aural skills and private piano lessons. Attending an international conference on Emile Jaque-Dalcroze, Aschbrenner was able to expand his skills and witness some of the works of the famous instructor. According to Aschbrenner, Dalcroze began an experimentation of developing better musical ear training skills. Dissatisfied with the musical level of students being taught in the traditional w a y , Dalcroze invented a method of teaching called eurythmics. Essentially, he attempted a method of training the inner ear, an inner-hearing. He sought the ability to hear a song in the ear without actually hav

Editorial

Quiet hours and freedom Some complaints have been made by students during the first week of classes that quiet hours in a couple of the dorms are too strict. Students in these residence halls are now asked to be quiet a t a n earlier time in the evening than in previous years. The major issue in this matter is freedom—the freedom to be loud or quiet and the freedom to make your own decisions without someone lording rules over you. W e cannot forget though, that this is also an issue of freedom to study and sleep—freedom to have a good and healthy environment for living. Freedom is part of what it means to live in the U.S. It becomes the responsibility of students to allow freedom for other students. When they do this, they will provide freedoms for themselves. We can take responsibility for our freedom in several ways—by voting, taking active roles in influencing policy, by respecting others rights and freedoms as people, as well as by supporting the policies that have been created to serve the community, to name a few. In a perfect society, rules wouldn' t be needed— everyone would be respectful. As it is, we need to create rules and laws to provide a framework for healthy societies. When students express concern that the quiet hours are not what they would like them to be, they should understand that they have had an opportunity to influence the policy. In this particular case, we know that students did have a say in the outcome of the policy. Changing the quiet hours was not something that was dictated by the administration of the college. Students in each of the dorms have had a chance to discuss the policy with those who enforce them. The concern seems to be that rules to this extent have not been enforced this way before and in essence this gives students less freedom. Freedom nowadays is a big issue. In general there is a worldwide movement toward more freedom rather than the opposite. This causes some people to feel frustrated when freedoms are taken away. The rules placed on any group of people ought to exist to provide a good foundation and boundaries for how those people interact with each other. These should be created for the benefit of the community. When we decide whether or not rules such as the ones that are coming to issue in Kollen and Phelps halls are good or not we need to take the needs of the communities into consideration. Whether or not students are upset at first may not be the most important point to consider. As mentioned, this may be a response from the way quiet hours have been practiced in the past.

The Pull Is a great tradition . , % V

Susan Adkins

Most of the talk by the new students around campus these days is about the traditional Pull event. The biggest question that has come up is: What exactly is a Pull? Is it a glorified tug of war between the freshmen and the sophomore classes where the big, strong, muscular guys are bound to win? Or is it more of a team effort event? Is it just a guy thing? I asked a few students and here are their reactions. ' Kristin Underhill ('95) describes the Pull as "a tradition of bonding for both the men and women involved." When Dave Nicholson ('96) was asked about the Pull, he responded, "1 feel that the Pull is a darn good way to get into shape, it is a great challenge and it should be a lot of fun." The Pull was also described as a competition of endurance between the freshman and sophomores, a test of teamwork, the best event on campus, and a time to honor tradition. Tradition. How does that fit in with the Pull? The Pull has been

around for 94 years and Hope students have kept it alive. But what exactly is tradition to the students attending Hope this year? According to Mark Dittmar ('95), "Tradition is knowing that hundreds of people have done this before you and many more will ^ o m e after and be doing the same thing and feeling the same way." Shawn Steiner ('96) commented, "It's a continuation of the good.times o.f the past." Other students' typical responses concerning the Pull tradition included comments such as: "It's like a baseball game full of spirit," "something you lake pride in," and "togetherness and security." The Pull has also been described as a lot of hard work. So why would anyone be involved in the first place? It is a time consuming, backbreaking, sweaty experience that people do each and every year. Why? Meghan Oberly ('96) compared the Pull to a "psycho illness that penetrates through each body creating a

flame that will never die." One student who participated last year commented that the reason he would do it over and over again is because of the friends he made and the great physical training. Others want to get involved to support their classmates, or just because the students in previous years have had such a good lime. It's not just a guy thing. The Pull is designed to bring 36 men and women together for support and awesome teamwork. Although some don't agree lhai the women are as important as the men, the majority of guys that have done it before have stated that without the encouragement of the girls it just wouldn't be the same. Whether male or female, come and be a part of Hope's yearly ritual. Will the class of '96 win? Or will the class of '95 break yet another of Hope's traditions? Sarah Boyd ('96) said, "1 look forward to the craziness of it all even if I don't participate. Just watching it will be wild!"

The Phelps Scramble Julie Blair The head honchos call Hope's dining system the scramble system, but those who frequent the cafeteria know it as Maas confusion. Every day, three times a day, hungry Hopesters pour into the small humid room seeking nourishment. Stressed about heavy duty deadlines, cafe connoisseurs bring this anxious attitude to the table, zooming through the lunch lines like the Tasmanian Devil after drinking a case of Jolt. You know the routine: The nice lady behind the bleeper machine takes your card. You smile, perhaps saying thank you if you're a polite sort, but underneath that cheesing facade, you're planning the attack. (Remember, you're being timed.) The machine beeps. You charge to the neatly

organized trays. (Don't gel greedy and take silverware, it will add lime to your score. Use fingers. They did it in the Middle Ages; you can too.) As you race to the drink machine you wrestle with your conscience; the Grecian god in the Adidas t-shirt is headed for the Pepsi machine. True, he's ahead of you, and of course you don't want to be rude...but you do have National Government homework waiting. Charging in front of him, you hit the Pepsi spot, filling your two glasses over the brim, spilling your pop onto your previously dry napkins. Heh heh. (Don't let guilt slow you down, you are so speedy he'll never recognize you next Friday as the rude blur at the drink machine.)

You slide to the salad bar, entangle trays al the entree counter and fly to the french fries. Finding your buddies is the next trick. Good luck on this one. It is virtually impossible to locate your group, but don't worry; separation anxiety doesn't last very long. You'll find them later in the dining room. All of this chaos seems potentially dangerous. Phelps casualties can be seen crossing campus wearing lasagna stained shirts, jell-oed jeans. Heck, it might even conserve laundry quarters. Then again, the scramble system is rather productive. Why trek to the Dow when you can bum calories doing aerobics at the food counter?

Disturbing new drama set in World War II France —*

by Eric Wampler arts & entertainment editor If you want lo be disturbed in an entertaining way, waich A Soldier's Tale on videocassette, adapted from M.K. Joseph's book. This movie, featuring Gabriel Byrne as the sergeant Saul, reminds the watcher of another movie he starred in, entitled Miller's Crossing. The dark moments and psychological weaving seem to follow him from the former award-nominated movie. Saul is a soldier through and through. His name is only mentioned once that I can remember, further fashioning him into an archetypical soldier. He's one of the British infantrymen in France during the Allied World War II push on Germany after D-Day. But don't plan on seeing much of the Germans; there's enough conflict with just the Allies.

Saul's problems in life are usually straightforward. Kill the enemy. "There's a job to be done," he. instructs a new recruit. 4 The fewer feelings you have, the better it's done." But then he hits a dilemma: a beautiful French woman, Belle, played by Marianne Basler, hiding out in a country cottage. It's not Germans she's on the sly from, though. The French Resistance have targeted her as a wartime German collaborator. Saul's presence is the only barrier that keeps the Resistance from executing the already condemned Belle, but Saul's interest in the woman is hardly noble. Criminal is a betterdescription. As he gets to know her and her story, however, his extreme specialized nature of the soldier begins to explore alien territory: love. The tension of the movie con-

tinually heightens as Saul's necessary date of departure for the front gets closer. He and Belle both know that as soon as he leaves, the ever present Resistance will want to cut her down. The ending to A Soldier's Tale comes to a surprising climax. It's definitely a shocker. I wonder how realistic it is, but it certainly demonstrates to what extent Saul is the kind of man he has created himself to be: a soldier. The ending is no small contribution to why this movie is so disturbing. All in all, it is a good movie to catch on videocassette. It provides entertainment for the moment, and food for thought later. One leaves it again realizing how war provides lethal confusion, how the little misconceptions between human beings are perverted to tragic dimensions.

Mexican restaurant with pop culture flair < by Eric Wampler T

arts & entertainment editor

The first thing Tim and I no• ticed about Sosas Restaurant as we walked in was the interesting blend of Mexican and pop American cul1 lure of bygone days. A friendly hostess told us to sit anywhere we liked. The place was small and comfortable. Electric candles flickered in emulation of the real thing. As we w a l k e d to o u r booth seat we tried to soak in as many of the black and while pictures on the wall as possible. There was one of Ronald Reagan and Bonzo, J.F.K., Marilyn Monroe, and John Wayne. Elvis was even there—in color, of course. The place mat and menu front were in a colorful, south-of- theborder style. The menu was an informal affair, set up to feature many different full dinners, each of which could be ordered with a number. For those who wanted to design their own meal, everything was listed

separately as well. A helpful glossary on the back suggested how lo pronounce each meal's name, and what it contains. For an appetizer, Tim and I ordered the chips and cheese. The chips came arranged on a large tray, cheese and hot cayenne pepper coaling everything in a warm, tasty mass. It was, as Tim put it, "a m e i in itself." But then, just as the last chip found its way into my mouth, the main meal came. We had both ordered the numb e r f o u r . T w o large cheese and onion enchiladas, one tostada, and two g e n e r o u s heaps of refried beans and rice. This wasn't a small plate we had been served. 0 u r

spanned a tray. (Okay, maybe my memory is exaggerating a bit, but there was a lot of food there.) Tim fancied himself something o f a Mexican cuisine expert. He was trying to instruct me, between mouthfuls, how each restaurant had its own distinctive enchilada sauce. By the way he was eating I could tell that this one met his aesthetic ideals.

Finally, I s o m e h o w found enough room for the pecan pie. I love a good dish of pecan pie. After your body is completely nourished, the pecan pie is for your soul. Sosas didn't disappoint me. Not cold and crusted, not here. Sweet and hot— maybe too hot, but that's nocrime in my book. Anyway, we got the bill, found we didn't owe a small fortune for a meal to feed an army, and left, our wallets still relatively unscathed. Sosas being just a quick hop from Hope, we had taken our bikes. It's conceivable to walk, though, especially with good company. As we rode home, Tim and I, feeling stuffed, fully appreciated the fact we that had treated ourselves to good Mexican food, and we had money left to do so again, hopefully in the near future. For those wishing to sample the Mexican food of Sosas, it is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and closed Sunday and Monday. They feature lunch and dinner, and are located on 153 West 8th (at Mill St.), just north of the Civic Center. Oh yeah. The gumball machine at Sosas takes anything from a penny to a quarter. I doubt the same is true of a restaurant at the Amway Grand.

GYPATE-WITH-THE BEST!

In a small, cold cave, a handful of tired men and women gather around a sputtering fire to watch one of their members paint. It is the dawn of mankind's life on the earth, and in a shadowy cavern the immortalized animals—horses, deer, wild boar— dance in the quivering light like spirits. The painter spreads them across the cold stone, the pigments flowing together as the greasy smoke stings eyes for one standing. Those around the fire nod, offering prayers of thanks, and sharpen their spears. I don't invoke this scene to attempt a review of a movie like Quest for Fire. Instead I'm attempting to unearth the herald of art for humanity. Art that even today, seemingly worlds apart from the hunters and gatherers of yesterday, is relevant and vital lo the human spirit. Some have formulated theories as lo why our ancestors crafted those paintings. I have read one such theory declaring that it was to accustom the viewers, the hunters, lo the sight of such an imposing animal. When the real hunt lakes place, the men will be less likely lo balk. Other iheories often touch upon a religious sentiment among these ancient people. Painting the animals was a way of giving thanks, or apologizing lo the non-human spirits they killed for food.

But it seems to go deeper than both theories let on. What was humanity doing when they recreated those elusive, powerful forms on their walls? Those paintings, as the forerunners of writing, were attempts at naming. They strove to capture the names of those animals in words. With words, units of thought can be easily remembered and objectified. They were tools used to survive in an almost incomprehensible world that could be either hostile or generous. And the naming went on. When you meet people for the first time, even if you are certain you'll never see them again, you ask their names. Why? Because you want to flesh out part of the world in your mind. Because it allows you to separate and focus on ideas distinctly. Because you're human. Art, then, explores the territories of the world around us and in our minds. Whether it be painting, theater, dance, or some other art form, it is a striving by people to learn to live in the world with each other and with themselves. And although we no longer must hunt for food, new problems and dilemmas have croppcd up. Without doubt, the world can still be as unfamiliar in its mood toward us as it was to the ancients, sitting around the fire, watching their prey form on cold, dark rock.

Shakespeare's Othello Knick by Eric Wampler arts & entertainment editor If you like panoramic castle shots, as in Franco Zeffirelli's Hamlet\ if you like wholesome, black-and-white classics; if you like the subtleties of plot and character with the drama of action and excitement; you're not going to like Orson Welles' Othello. You're going to love it. Under the genius of Welles, the fascinating cinematography blends with the heroic acting to uncover fine nuances of Shakespeare's work. The villainousness of lago (played by Michael Mac Liammoir), for example, is given an interesting perspective when he seems to flinch upon the sight of Othello (Orson Welles himself) and Desdemona (Suzanne Cloutier) embracing. He hates Othello? It seems as though he hates happiness. Clearly lago is an -irtist of evil, and you cannot help but admire his style as he lowers the iioose for his prey. And Desdemona's beautiful innocence. When her actions lead ler deeper into lago's web, what :an she do but look confused, then toic as her selfless nature merely ries to help those around her? She ittjiins the air of one guilty of a :riiTie when she doesn't even know be charge. Finally, Othello. This strong,

powerful warrior so respected as a strategist and a leader, is he so confident and self-assured as his deep Orson Welles voice suggests? His bleak, doubt-tormented looks reveal one who has a past of repression. He is the moor, and sees the people of Venice as those looking down on him. He is the outsider. While the characters aren't new to those a l r e a d y f a m i l i a r to Shakespeare's plays, the movie scenes will be. The bumbling of a minor villain adds humor in the face of horror. The reccurring cage that continually reminds of the doom that is approaching. And the deadly bath scene, the place where the soldiers can relax without their armor. What of safety there? Truly, Welles obtains high performance with his use of camera, actors, and scenery. Not that the movie isn 't without its faults. There are a few oddities with the sounds, and the visual isn't perfect either. Ignore that. With the art and mastery that Welles exhibits, allow him a few eccentricities and he will reward you with an ageold tale that will leap off the screen to grab you by the throat. An absolutely rivetting tale. Othello will be at the Knickerbocker Theatre starting Friday, September 11 to Thursday, September 17. It will be shown at 7 and 9 nightly. Saturday matinees are at 1,3, and 5 o'clock.

From the Cheap Seats Steve Shilling

Larry and Me He was the smart2st player I ever played against" - Magic Johnson It's been almost a month, so this doesn't really qualify as "new" news, but it took me so long to like the guy that I think he's deserving of at least some praise. The guy is Larry Joe Bird of French Lick, Indiana, the man who along with Magic Johnson helped revitalize the NBA into the league it is today. From the start of his career until about three years ago, I really disliked the Larry. Maybe it was the Celtic thing and the fact that I liked the Pistons, or maybe it was the fact that this goofy looking guy who ran like a duck and couldn't jump was just good! I mean, there was something there inside the guy that made Larry Bird a winner, and I didn't get it. Two years ago, I began lo lighten up. I was over "Bird steals the ball" and something dawned in my eyes and I actually began to lose that deep disliking of Bird. Well, I think it was actually that I gained more respect for him, but like Larry Bird? Gee, I didn't think that I could go that far. After all, he's a Celtic. Then, this past year during the NBA regular season, without reason, I really liked Larry "Legend." I mean, gone were the days of "he's such a dork" and "he's not that good." No more bad-mouthing Larry Bird; I was a Bird fan now. I had to tune into Sportscenter to see what the next remarkable feat was that Larry would turn out. Then came the playoffs, where again Larry's stock would rise with me. The "Legend" showed again for the second straight year that he can exchange anything from trash talk to a beautiful ranging threepointer with the Indiana Pacers "flashy" Chuck Person. Once again proving how a superstar rises to all occasions, raising his opponent's game, but taking his game even one step further. Next came Barcelona. Larry would play after some speculation that his back would force him to sit the games out. Good for me. Now I could see my man Larry on the same team with "the Magic Man" in something

a little more competitive than a charity basketball game. It didn't matter that the Gold was the greatest lock since the sun rising in the east and setting in the west, but it was the beauty of it all. However, all the wild nolook passes, fancy fast break running and graceful threes with a hand in Larry's face couldn't keep from the back of my mind what people were saying during the Gold Medal game. It was being said that the games would be the last competitive action that Larry Bird would see in his career. I just passed it off, though, as one of those blown-out-ofproportion media rumors that make sports what it is. "My back feels the best it's felt in years," Larry would say. He'd be in camp, I thought. Easy. Then just when it was getting to be so fun to follow the "Legend," Larry Bird called a press conference on Tuesday, August 18,1992. Why? I kept asking. Why, Larry? Why not McHale or the Chief? Why now? I can't hate him for it. I respect him even more for going out like champion with a shiny Olympic gold medal around his neck rather that a gray-haired old gimp who can barely shoot, let alone run or walk up the court. Sure, Larry will get one of those big tear-jerking Boston Garden send-offs with gala gifts and an All-Star cast. And surely they will hang #33 in the rafters as well. But for me, I picture Larry versus Magic in a few years (when Magic really hangs 'em up), on a court in French Lick with the sun setting across the cornfields and the outdoor floodlights just beginning to take effect. The game's to 100 and Magic leads Larry 99-97, Bird's ball on top. Larry makes a little dribble move wanting to tie the game, then thinks better of it and^teps out for three. Larry gets off the shot but there's contact as the ball approaches the basket.... You know, I'd really like to be sitting courtside for that one. For now, it's just better to leave some things up lo one's own imagination.

Men booters take G.R. tourney * vnr j .i u v ;. !

by Steve Shilling sports editor Two early shutouts at the Comet Kickoff Classic in Grand Rapids this past weekend have gotten the men's soccer team rolling into 1992. The latest was a 3-0 victory over Grand Rapids Baptist this past Saturday. Nick Palomaki's ('93) first half goal for the Dutch opened the scoring, followed by second half tallies by Jeff Utzinger ('93) and Chris Hofland ('95). The men not only won the tournament (also beating Bethel, Ind. Friday), but placed five players on the alltournament team. Blake Richards ('95) was named defensive Most Valuable Player in the tournament. Goalie Lee Schopp ('94), striker Darren Bennett ('93) and defensemen Jason VanAmmen ('96) and Jeff Utzinger ('93) rounded out the Hope College selections. The men square off against Aquinas College this afternoon at Buys Athletic Field at 4:00 p.m.

Sports Previews Flying harriers off and racing The Flying Dutch cross-country team began its chase after five-time Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Champion Calvin College yesterday. The lady harriers also began looking to improve their third place finish behind Calvin and Alma. The m e n ' s team is lead by captain Cody Inglis ('93), and Jason Elmore ('93). Aaron Bruininks ('94), Scott Patton ('94), John Nowak ('94), and Todd Whitwam ('95) round out the seven reluming letter winners. Bruininks is thedrivingforceof the men'steam. He finished thirty-first out of 177 runners at the Division III national championships held at Christopher-Newport College. Bruininks also garnered first team MIAA honors. Patton placed eleventh overall, giving him second team All-MIAA honors. Among seven returning letter winners this year, the women'steamboaststhreetri-captainsfor 1992: Marcia Vandersall ('93), Teresa Foster ('94), and Alicia

Mendenhall (*94). Melissa Modderman (*93), Sonja Langlois( 4 94),CaraLuchies( t 94),and Amy Leatherman ('95) are the other four reluming letter harriers. Vandersall is the women's main threat this year as a two-time NCAA Division III and All-American track champion. She placed sixth in the nation last spring in the 5,000 meter race, Mendenhall finished eleventh overall in the All-MIAA standings in 1991, gaining second team recognition. Dana Thomson ('95) is an encouraging addition to the harriers, bringing to the team an MIAA 800 meter track championship. She was also a qualifier for the NCAA Division III national championships last spring. NOTEBOOK The men harriers placed fourth al the N C A A regional last year....the women finished third at their regional meet. — S. Ruckert

Promising season ahead for men's and women's golf The Hope College women's golf team hopes to continue their success in 1992 after winning the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title last year by winning every conference toumament. The women's team was new to Hope College in 1991. Coach Jane Holman returns six letter winners. including conference medalist Lisa Stover ('94). Stover led the MIAA by averaging 83.4 strokes per 18 holes.KristenCline('95)andKristenCooper('93) will also be productive as they averaged 93.5 and 95.0 strokes per 18 holes in MIAA play last year. Those totals placed both in the MIAA top ten golfers in 1991. After finishing second to Olivet the past two years, the men's golf team hopes to gain a few strokes on the

field in 1992. Three retuming letter winners will help the cause for coach Bob Ebels' team. Mike Peddie ('93) was seventh overall among MIAA golfers last year, averaging 81.1 strokes per 18 holes. Scott Curry ('93) and Brian Conn ('95) were not far behind at 83. l a n d 83.5 strokes per 18 holes respectively. The men open up on September 17at Albion while the women began yesterday at Adrian. NOTEBOOK Stover was named MIAA Most Valuable golfer in 1991....both teams have a new home course in 1992 at the Winding Creek Golf Club. —S.Shilling

Volleyball sets to improve on '91 The Hope College women's volleyball team takes a young team into the '92 season looking to tum around their 4-8 fifth place finish in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association in '91. Coach Karla Wolters returns only five letter winners to a team that includes 18 freshman. Wolters says, "The weakness initially is to get people on varsity as a team together." Among those leading the attack in '92 are hitters Rachel Zimmer ('93), Dori Allen ('93), and setter Linda Nagelkirk ('94). Look for Joelle Rossback ('95) whom Wolters said "would see a lot of playing time." Of the teams the Dutch will face in '92, Wolters looks at Calvin College, Alma College, and '91 MIAA champion Kalamazoo College to be strong this year. Although the team won only one of their four matches at the Calvin College Toumament on Satur-

day, Wolters feels strong about her team and what they have to offer their opponents in '92. Wolters knows her retuming players quite well, anticipating "good leadership at the top.". Wolters also added, "Their quickness and agility might surprise some people." The next match for the Lady Dutch will be tonight at the Dow Center, they face Calvin and Spring Arbor Colleges in a triangular meet, beginning al 6 p.m.

NOTEBOOK The Flying Dutch travel to Troy, NY for a toumament at Rensselaer Polytechnic Tech on October 910....The women spikers had a perfect .500 winning percentage on the road last year.
