.m. According to the male victim, a man a p p r o a c h e d him and demanded his wallet. T h e student did not have a wallet to give the man and without provocation a group of

males then attacked the male student. A p p a r e n t l y , the m a l e s t u d e n t ducked to avoid a punch and the assailant inadvertently struck the female in the head. Neither victim required medical attention. According to a witness, they fled to one of many cars parked in a neighor's driveway. According to the police report, the assailants then fled into a black car and d r o v e away. A resident of 14lh Street said the assailants fled to the vehicle which

was parked in the driveway of a neighboring house. In an effort to help, the witness and a friend caught up with the two victims, who were walking from the scene of the crime back to campus. On the way, the four spotted a Public Safety vehicle in the College East parking lot and reported the incident to the officers present. Public Safety is c o n t i n u i n g to work with the Holland Police Department on the case. According to Lisa Bansick, the patrol officer assigned to the area.

no suspects have been named thus far. Authorities are still in the interviewing process and are looking for any additional information anyone might have regarding this or any other incident. According to neighbors, the tenants of the house where the assailants fled to were evicted due to excessive violence, including a driveby s h o o t i n g t h a t o c c u r e d three weeks ago.

Greeks and non-Greeks rocked to the sounds of bands paisley dAve and Qube last Saturday night, Sept. . behind Yonkman Cottage for the "Backyard Bash." The concert was part of a continuing extension of the Greek Life C o m m i t t e e ' s integration agenda, which is aimed at developing fraternity and sorority relations around campus. T h e music could be heard across c a m p u s , and attracted many non-Greek visitors to the event. "1 could hear them from my room in Scott Hall," said Louis Williams (*01), "so I decided to come over." Adam Hudson ('99), a resident of the Centurian cottage last year, explained the reasoning behind Saturday night's event. "From seven to ten is a dead time between d i n n e r and o f f - c a m p u s activities," he said. "We thought that (the Greek cottages) would provide some entertainment, or at least a place to hang, listen to mus i c , a n d m a y b e b u y an A l p h a G a m m a Phi necklace," he said. "About 4 0 0 people wandered in and out," said Arcadian cottage R A Chris Sandro ('98). "We're more than happy with the t u r n o u t . " Greeks, freshmen and even community members attended.

"We wanted to make the event for everyone, especially the first-year s t u d e n t s , " said S a r a V a n H o o s e ('99), a member of the Sibylline sorority. T h e Greek cottage RAs sponsored the event as an alternative to o f f - c a m p u s parties. Saturday's all-campus happening, with the addition of up-coming Greek events, is part of an a t t e m p t to e x p a n d friendships on campus. 4 i f you're friends with sorority girls, you hang out with sorority girls," said Cathleen Jaworowski COO). Many members of the cottages

are trying to change this. "By offering activities for the entire student body, the Greeks hope to dispel many of the pretentious and elitist s t e r e o t y p e s of G r e e k life," said Sye Mishler ('99) of the Alpha Kappa Pi fraternity. "It's a way to meet people, and hopefully a fun way to do it," he said. According to Cottage Resident Director Mary Ann Permesang, m a n y of t h e u p c o m i n g G r e e k events are designed to get the cottages involved in their neighborhoods. The Greek cottages have planned

many events, such as neighborhood picnics and other backyard concerts to improve neighborhood relations. All of these activities come in direct response to meetings held this summer among the cottage resident assistants, where the issue of creating contacts outside their cottage surfaced as an important issue. From those early meetings came events like Saturday's bash, events that are trying not only to establish friendships a m o n g all Hope students, Greek or non-Greek, but also to establish friendships with the outlying community around Hope college.

David G. Myers, Hope College professor of Psychology and author of the book The Pursuit of Happiness: Who Is Happy and Why, was interviewed by A B C news reporter John Stossel Thursday, Sept. 4 at 10:00 p.m. Myers appeared on the news special subtitled, " T h e Mystery of Happiness: Who Has It...How To Get It." "I was very uptight when I started being interviewed," M y e r s said. "And I still needed to relax with a run and a hot bath before sitting down for the ninety minute taping

with Stossel." The interview, which took place in February of 1996 in a New York City hotel suite opened Myers' eyes to "how much work and taping goes into a program like this. There was a producer team for every segment of the show. And they told me they film about sixty minutes for every minute of show," he said. Myers was impressed with the A B C news team, especially after two earlier interviews with national news networks. "Other tapings for A B C ' s Good Morning America and for an NBC Maria Shriver special were a bit of a bust," Myers said. " T h e Maria Shriver happiness special, for ex-

N O CHEESE, PLEASE

Amy Hall You're standing in front of the dingy veggie-steamed glass among the sweaty mob. On the right is a girl with one too many ponytails sprouting from the top of her head, and to the left is the kid who y o u ' r e sure you saw talking to his lima beans the other day. Phelps smells as fragrant as ever. v The fish looks a little happy and y o u ' v e never dug those ever-so-tasty casserole delights. All you want is a hamburger. A plain, old hamburger. It's easy; you can't mess it up. Just hold the cheese. " N O C H E E S E , PLEASE." you somewhat scream while trying to sling a plastic smile toward that lovely lunch lady... Okay. So my column title is a little, for lack of another word, cheesy. (Don't worry. I am presently concocting a much cooler c o m m e n t for the top of my column.) T h e cheese does, however, serve a purpose on this Religion page. Do you ever get sick of cheesy Christianity? Are you tired of smiles that mean nothing to the person w h o is wearing that sorry smirk? Let us abolish such garbage! This page is for truth, for depth, for realness. That is not to say that I am a serious sergeant with tightly laced boots at all times. I have been known to get a little crazy, a little wild, a little bit L O U D f r o m time to time. (Okay, from minute to minute, but you know what I ' m sayin' here!) I want to see this page begin to mean something to our

readers. It's nice to know that six Hope students knitted cross necklaces for the Dutch natives, but let's, just maybe, talk about something important. What religious issues or questions a r e you struggling with? What beliefs and principles mean a great deal to you? Is there something you need to share with this campus? Let's start talking! Alright. I'll be first. I found it hilarious several days ago when I was asked to find a story on some "weird, random religion," such as "those people who speak in tongues and stuff." I do very much realize that> to the R e f o n n e d community and most [Christian] denominational churches in America, people who speak in tongues are "way out there." Now, mind you, I don't find it extremely necessary to give you, my readers. Amy Hall's extensive spiritual background. But I will tell you this...I was raised in a charismatic, Pentecostal-type, spirit-filled, nondenominational church. Hmmm... Okay, w h o ' s next? Does your faith really mean anything to you? Let's tear the cheesy stuff away and touch on some real meat, some substance. If your god is alive and real to you, you don't need to zip your lip and resort to those terribly trite smiles. Just remember. T h e next time you have the pleasure of dining in Phelps, take a good, long look at that cheese. Is that really what the ole' stomach's cravin'?

Campus ministries get the shake d o w n f r o m scholars JENNIFER JAMES staff reporter

Mark Devries, in his book Family Based Youth Ministry, speaks of the success and disappointments of modern day youth ministry. He starts by examining what is considered successful. Is success measured by numbers ? Devries' answer is "no." Is success measured by seeing a change in young people, seeing them commit to God, and watching them take a leadership position for Him? While these criteria come closer to measuring success, Devries still is not satisfied. How, then, is success accurately measured in ministry? Looking at adolescents in ministries, an unfortunate trend can be noted. While kids at this age become active at their church or youth group they remain on somewhat of a spiritual high. Each week provides new opportunities for concerts, mission trips, or inspirational talks. "[However], faith may begin on the mountaintop, but Christian character is formed in the crucible of pain," Devries said. F o l l o w i n g a lo n g trip o n t h e mountaintop, this crucible of pain leads to an eventual falling out of the faith, according to Devries. As adolescents become adults and are placed in the mundane routines of daily life, Christianity based on ent e r t a i n m e n t l o s e s its p l a c e in people's lives. Here is the evidence that true disciples are not being raised up. True disciples are f o l l o w e r s of Christ through the highs, mediocre times, and even the lowest valleys. How does all this relate to Hope College? Hope, being founded on

our voice. A v e n u e of Assault Holland's newest addition to their already plentiful walkways of ill repute is 14th street, specifically between Lincoln and Fairbanks. In most cities people stay a w a y f r o m these avenues of assault especially at 3:00 a.m., but not us H o p e College s t u d e n t s . W e l i k e a g o o d b e a t i n g , r i g h t ? It a d d s excitement to our lives. It would be fun to walk d o w n 14th St. drunk as a skunk any night. W h y not? If that's where the party is. I ' m there. I d o n ' t care what kind of trash lives next door. Beer is beer and the alcohol will n u m b any kind of pain that might c o m e along with it. Right? Wrong. Going to o f f - c a m p u s parties is not worth being assaulted at all, n o matter how much f u n it may b e to g o s p e n d y o u r w e e k e n d s in a h o t , dirty, p a r t y h o u s e . However, this is not necessarily to say that the blame lay in the hands of the people w h o throw this bad-area bash. T h e b l a m e rests on the shoulder of those d o i n g the assaulting. T h e b l a m e should be directed toward the assailants w h o have had nothing better to d o with their spare time than to g o out and hunt d o w n poor helpless college kids and beat the tar out of them. Well, h a n g on here. It's not that simple. This problem is not just a H o p e thing and not just a Holland thing. This is a problem that happens everywhere these days and the fact that it has happened twice in as many w e e k s is just a sign of the times. C r i m e is e v e r y w h e r e and it, unfortunately, cannot be avoided entirely. H o w e v e r , this is not to say that you s h o u l d n ' t g o anywhere at night ever, but you should stick to the main roads, walk in groups, and (brace yourself) if you do go out to a party don't get completely intoxicated, and hence b e c o m e unable to m a k e a clear and rational decision anymore. T h e only clear soultion to avoid getting assaulted is to just not walk down the street, by yourself or intoxicated at 3:00 a.m. No party is worth being beaten up. No matter what kind of beverage they serve there.

Student mourns the loss of Diana, Princess of Wales Dear Editor, On Saturday night, August 30, I never realized that a simple car accident and a woman I did not know at all would end up profoundly affecting me in a such a deep and personal way. I idolized Her Royal Highness Diana, Princess of Wales, the way most men idolize Michael Jordan. So it should come as no surprise to you w h e n I s a y t h a t I w a s shocked at the news of tragic, senseless d e a t h a n d d e v a s t a t e d a n d

moved to tears when I had found out the a w f u l news of her death from a heart attack at age thirty-six. What I am the most angry at besides the nagging question of why did this happen, is that on a campus that supposedly prides itself on being a "Christian environment" I would hope that there would have been some respect and concern over the tragic death of such a high figure of international fame. Instead all I hear is, " S h e deserved to die," and t4I was tired of seeing her name and her face on all

those magazine covers." We must remember all the good things that she did during her all-too-short life span: AIDS work, breast cancer research, landmines, etc. I just gel so angry and upset when s o m e o n e says, "You didn't know her, so w h y should you be conc e r n e d ? " Believe me, if Michael Jordon dies and there is a major upset, I'll be asking the same question.

There really is nothing to complain about at Hope Dear Editor, As I was considering writing a letter to the editor this week, I was trying to think about what I was mad about this week concerning the administration of Hope College. Then it occurred to me. I am not mad at all. So far this year has been going great, even with those small problems eveyone seems to be complaining about. I just feel that it is time to stop complaining about all of the same issues every year. Yes, parking is congested on campus, it has been since I came to Hope, and it prob-

ably will be long after I leave. Public Safely is trying new things to h e l p this problem and I applaud them for that. Others might be complaining about the housing situation on campus. I do not see a problem. We have just built a new dining facility and dormitory that are the model of luxury for any normal college student. W h y is it that we always need to have more? Others might also complain about the high prices of books that we have to pay. That is the case at eve r y c o l l e g e or u n i v e r s i t y in America, whether they have o n e bookstore or if they have 20.1 might

be mad that the Kletz raised their prices through the roof, but I am not b e c a u s e they b r o u g h t t h e m b a c k down again once they have realized their mistake. I might also be mad that student organizations are not getting the funding they need, but I have learned that you should never bite the hand that feeds you. So what is there to be mad about? Well, nothing at all, and that is great. It is such a great feeling in the morning to w a k e u p and not be mad. Maybe you should try it.

You can always make time to get involved Dear Editor, With two weeks of classes down, the routine seems to be set. For the freshmen, life at college may seem to make some more sense than it did during Orientation. When the routine becomes set, boredom is also a problem. To combat the force of b o r e d o m , some students take the Frisbee golf course or to the coffee house with friends. Those are great activities, necessary for a pace this frenzied. But there is time to get involved in the extracurricular activities at Hope. It is an essential part of the college experience which will not be forgotten. The different activities cater to e v e r y b o d y and every taste. For those who like to play sports without the rigors of a varsity schedule, Intramurals begin soon. The majority of Greek Life's New Member E d u c a t i o n may not be until the Spring, but Alpha Phi O m e g a is beginning theirs. The actives are out hosting events like last weekend's

outdoor concert. For those w h o want to make a difference on campus, different groups reach out to the Hope community and beyond. G r o u p s like Environmental Issues and Black Coalition encourage broader thinking. C r e a t i v e t y p e s can e x p r e s s themselves through writing for the publications, like the Milestone, Anchor and Opus. For those who want to explore their majors more fully, the scholastics g r o u p s are available, like Spanish Club and the Chemistry Club. For a school this size, the amount and the diversity of campus events is i m p r e s s i v e . E a c h p e r s o n h a s something to do that fits their skills and interests. Hope is also open to those who want to create club that fits their desires. The newest fraternity, Alpha Kappa Pi filled a different need as does the Mountain Bike Team. Time is tight for everybody, but extracurriculars fill up empty hours with positive experiences and make

time planning more organized. No student on campus needs to sit at h o m e wondering when his friends want to head for coffee or wait out the interminable winter for Frisbee Golf without frostbite. This is your campus. There are so many organizations out there waiting for talented and energetic people to challenge and expand the groups. Few clubs have strict prerequisites, most only need a helping hand and a desire to work. These activities m a k e t h e d i f f e r e n c e f r o m a h o m e w o r k - f i l l e d d o l d r u m s to a well-rounded college experience. If you don't believe me, just ask one of those crazy people still around DeWitt at 2 a.m. w o r k i n g to imp r o v e their c a m p u s and indulge their passions. Take a risk. You might find that you can learn something outside of the classroom too.
