Education majors "face dim employment picture by Suzanne Watterson Six thousand Michigan teachers were expected. not to be re-employed this school year. The predi9tion was made last May by Herman Coleman, executive secretary of the Michigan Education Association, as a result of a survey of 535 Michigan school districts. THE DECREASE in population after the baby boom is reflecting itself in the school system. Teachers are not in as great a demand simply because there are fewer students. Besides the 6,000 teachers that were not re-employed, spring graduation from Michigan's colleges and universities produced 11,000 new teacher candidates who had little or no prospects for jobs. HOPE WILL certify between 110-115 teachers this spring, which is about the same number certified from the graduating class of '75 that went job hunting this summer. • Volume 8 8 - 2

Additions to faculty comment on Hope by Barbara Brown This week the anchor talked with the remaining new faculty members appointed to the teaching staff at Hope. ROBERT CLINE has joined the economics department as assistant professor of economics. He earned his B.A. degree from the College of William and Mary, his M.A. from the University of Michigan and was formerly an assistant professor of economics at Georgia State University. Coming from a school of
20,000, Cline did notice some differences at Hope. Cline stated that he was impressed with the facilities and found the students to be sharp and interesting in class. Cline also stated that he likes the openness between the students and faculty. DR. DONALD FR1EDR1CH, assistant professor of chemistry, holds a B.A. degree from the University of Michigan and received his Ph.D. from Cornell University. Prior to coming to Hope he

According to Dr. James Bultman, chairman of the education department, 50 percent of the graduating teacher candidates received placement. "That record was twice as good as most qf our competitors. I think the reason is that Hope is small and thereby able tq bring before prospective employers people that we know," he said. WHEN A TEACHER finds a job opportunity, a representative from the education department will talk personally with the prospective employer, pushing the teacher as a candidate for the position. Job opportunities are greater in some education areas than others. Bultman commented that, "some areas which are more open are math, science and English teaching at the secondary level." A SPECIAL education program has been introduced at Hope this year and certification is pending at the state level. Also, a committee is now exploring a bilingiralbicultural major program for certification to meet the demands for teachers in that field. Bultman added that the department was "not satisfied with only 50 percent placement." He added, "To improve the placement level we can try to keep better track of where teacher candidates want to teach, be diligent in contacting employers, and be more available during the peak hiring months of July and August." Competition for teaching jobs is fiercer than ever. In view of this fact Bultman stated, "It's even more'important to establish quality records. Your chances of being hired are also increased if you can offer the school some talent in extracuricular activities, such as coaching."

The third world—'its a whole different ballgame' The following essay is written by Paul DeWeese. It is the first of a six part series that will describe his reactions to and impressions of Pakistan. DeWeese traveled to Pakistan this summer as a representative of the Hope Student Church. "This is a fairyland, what we live in, Our opulence. The real world is over there. Pictures can't show it the way it is. For one thing, you can't smell it. You can't see the water they drink, the food they eat, the people urinating in the streets, defecating alongside the roads. When you fly into Karachi [Pakistan], 3,000 feet up you notice an odor. That's the stench of the city. It's a whole different ballgame, the third world. We just don't understand it." AS I reflect over my experience 'in Pakistan this summer, I painfully realize Dr. Ralph Blocksma is right. I don't understand.

It's despicable to admit that 210 million people in the United States consume an amount of grain, which, if we were on a Chinese diet, would feed about a billion Chinese. There is no way to justify fattening our livestock with almost as much cereal as the two billion people in the poor nations eat directly as food. The poverty of the great majority-of the world's population represents one of the greatest enigmas confronting our world today. To continue to live as we are is unjustified while to blindly give uhquestionly is irresponsible and could eventually lead to genocide.

Tuition costs rise; administration expresses concern by JohnScholten After the tuition hike last spring, many students at Hope felt the financial pinch this summer more so than ever before. IN ADDITION to the fact that employment was extremely hard to find for anyone this summer,, let alone a college student, Hope students had to find a way to raise $265 more than in the previous school year. Bruce Himebaugh, Director of Financial Aid, stated, "In talking to many of the students we find that more experienced a much harder time raising money this year than they had before." WITH CONTINUAL increases in costs, institutions constantly run the risk of eliminating the lower socio-economic group from their classes. Hope, too, runs this risk. "Of course we are concerned about this," stated President Gordon Van Wylen. "We're

"EVERY private college is wrestling with the same problem. Our goal is to operate a quality school and let students of lower financial backgrounds still attend," Van Wylen said. . Hope is the cheapest college in the GLCA to attend, with a total cost of $3,575. Kalamazoo College is the next in line with a total cost of $4,005. All of the other colleges in the GLCA are more expensive. THE FINANCIAL background of the average Hope student hasn't really changed significantly. Himebaugh noted, "Our minority student enrollment has achieved stability. Although the makeup has changed, due greatly to the efforts of the Upward Bound pro-

Himebaugh also stated, "Our biggest challenge is to serve the needs of all of our students rather than one particular, segment of the Hope population. Because of this approach, there will always be a commitment for different types of people. A good mix of students is desirable. We don't want all high income people, not all middle class, and not all minority students. We like to maintain a well-rounded school." Van Wylen concluded by saying, "We can only keep the cost of going to Hope at a minimum by being very careful. We must constantly be asking ourselves: How can we reduce - costs at Hope? Let's not waste any money. Ultimately, the costs and increases are assumed by the students."

HPD installs emergency phones
ON TELEPHONE POLES-!nstalled while Hope students were away for summer break, the new Holland emergency phones are proving effective.
by Kenneth Lobb • Red, white, and blue has taken a new meaning in Holland these days. A series of 26 emergency telephone boxes, thusly painted, have been installed by the city in hopes of creating a more efficient crime and accident report system. THE BRIGHT color of the boxes and their adjacent signs were not meant as a Bicentennial contribution. They function as eye-catchers for a person needing police help in fires, accidents, crimes and related matters. The boxes are only a bit newer than the Class of '79, having been in operation since August 21. In that short time police have received 20 calls, proving the worth of the new emergency system quickly. "WE'RE MOST optimistic about this new report system," said Deputy Police . Chief Gene Geib, while explaining the mechanical functions of the plan. 'They fill our need for a quick citizen-to-police hookup." The appealing factor of the new boxes, Geib said, is their efficient simplicity, making the system "just what we wanted." THEY ARE nothing more than an outside telephone-extension. Yet when a person opens the box and dials zero, he or she is contacted immediately to the police dispatcher. The four foxes located closest to campus are on 8th and College, 8th and Lincoln, 7th and Columbia, and 16th and Columbia. GEIB SAID it .took a lot of convincing to get the state to release federal funds for the project. In fact, Holland's new setup is the first of its kind in Michigan. "We were turned down at first because surveys showed there would be a high rate of vandalism and false alarms," he said. "BUT AFTER a year of talks, explaining that our system was unique, we finally won their ap-
Chem profs participate in ACS national meeting Several members of the chemistry faculty participated in the 179th national meeting of the American Chemistry Society in. Chicago last week. Dr. William Mungall, associate professor of chemistry, participated in two committee meetings of the chemical education section. He serves on the organic chemistry examinations committee and the committee for organic curriculum. Professor of Chemistry Dr. Donald Williams presented a paper to the inorganic section and Dr.
Barbara Barker, assistant professor of chemistry, presented research results to the physical chemistry section. Dr. Bernard Siegfried, a postdoctoral associate of Prof. Michael Doyle, presented a paper on work done with Dr. Doyle. Professor of Chemistry Dr. Irwin Brink led a session at the undergraduate research participation program directors meeting as part of a National Science Foundation meeting held concurrently in Chicago.
proval. This is now considered a pilot project." If the emergency report system works after one year, then chances are good the same system will be coming up in other cities throughout the state. Geib said, "There's no reason why this shouldn't be a success. "THE WAY it works," he said, is that besides the initial grant of $17,600 from the feveral government, the v state has agreed to pay for everything during its first year, provided that elaborate records are kept. "This information will then be studied by the state in determining the feasibility of using the system in other cities. "AS FOR our system, the city has agreed to pick up the costs after one year," Geib said, but added, "It's not a really expensive one. The boxes are just like an extra telephone extension." All conversations are recorded, Geib said, in attempting to keep more accurate records and to discourage false alarms. "The state had questions about false alarms, but with this system, I'd say chances are slim that someone could do it successfully," Geib said. For its first three weeks of operation, there has only been one prank call, which Geib described as "probably a child playing around." ACCORDING TO the deputy chief, the boxes were placed around town with the following preferences in mind; amount of traffic, both driving and walking; past record of accidents and crimes; and the availability of telephones in the area.
"But when looking at the map I can say they are pretty .well evenly distributed," Geib said. Holland has been without any type of fire alarm system for almost five years, and when this system was finally removed Geib said it was "terribly antiquated." THE POLICE force hacT thought about a modern system for the last two years, but it wasn't until three weeks ago when the system finally went into effect. "It made sense to incorporate both a fire and police operation from one box," Geib said. "It's practical and it's going to make things a lot easier." ONE ADDITIONAL advantage of the phones is for policemen, Geib said. From now on they will be able to tape their reports into the emergency boxes and have it directly transmitted to the police computer room. The boxes are lit at night for easier spotting. They are all located on corners, attached to telephone poles. The red, white, and blue sign says, " P h o n e - P o l i c e Fire," and there is a drawing of a telephone. The box itself is encased in thick aluminum. The procedure for operation is simple; open the door, lift the receiver, and dial zero. You are now speaking with the police.

President Van Wylen commented in his interview this week concerning increasing costs at Hope, "Ultimately, the costs and increases are assumed by the students."
This is quite an assumption. Although Van Wylen is essentially correct in his statement, one may discover some interesting ramifications from this. With over 80% of the total costs of the college being paid for by the students' tuition, the students are the financial foundation of this institution. If a stockholder owns 80 percent of a corporation's stocks, he generally makes an appropriate number pf decisions regarding how his money is to be spent. Hope students certainly are not consulted about 80 percent of the financial decisions made here. With the costs and increases being reflected by the student's tuition, it seems a tragedy that we are not consulted on fiscal matters. Of course, it would be tremendously impractical to attempt to consult all of the students on how they think that their money should be spent. But it would be plausible for students to be consulted on how they think their fundage is being wasted. For example, there's the story of the freshman who lived in Kollen Hall last year. So much heat was continually being pumped into his room, even during the warm fall months, that he had to keep his window open to maintain a comfortable temperature in r the room. . 1 ' . What a tremendous waste! To overheat an entire residence hall for a whole year musV cost a great deal of money. Yet, who could the freshman teH about this waste? As a gesture of good faith, the administration should provide a liaison person or office that would handle student input on how money might be saved. After paying $3,575 to attend Hope, surely a student has this right.

OPUS seeks submissions OPIJS is more than just" a literary magazine. It has a three-fold purpose: Firstly, to publish a magazine containing selected literary work composed by Hope students. Secondly, to provide an audience for students to present their art form (fhe skills of their major field) for criticism and self-expression. Thirdly, to provide informal entertainment for those on a study break.
Let me give you an example. On September 26th, we will have our first OPUS evening. During that hour we would like to see the Prose and Poetry readers interspersed by: an interpretive dance routine, or some'creative dramatics, some art work on display, and perhaps some music by a few of those wandering "minstrels of the Kletz" in search of an audience. We want to give you that audience. Our staff has already begun making some contacts, and will be available throughout the next two weeks. If you are interested in sharing something, on the 26th, please don't wait for us to contact y o u - d r o p a note in the OPUS Box in the Kletz.

WASHINGTONâ€”A group of us were sitting around the other night talking about Henry Ford's woes in Santa Barbara where he had been arrested for driving under the influence. Ford happened to be with a model from Grosse Pointe at the time, and his wife happened to be in Katmandu, at the coronation of the King of Nepal. OUR SYMPATHIES, of course, were with Ford, and we all started to speculate on how we would handle the situation if any of us were Henry Ford and our wife had just returned from Katmandu. "Cristina, darling, 1 have marvelous news. While you were in Nepal, I drove a 1975 Ford LTD from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara, and I got 18 miles to the gallon." "I HEARD about it in Katmandu." "Oh, you did? It was fantastic. You see, my people in Detroit asked me to talk to our dealers in California because business has been so lousy. And I figured since you were away it would give me a marvelous opportunity to jazz up sales." "HOW THOUGHTFUL of youTHenry." "Well, I happened to be at this party in Grosse Pointe the night before I was leaving, and my dinner partner, a woman from the area, said she would love to see the oil spills off the coast of santa Barbara. She was one of those barefoot ecology nuts." "WHAT WAS her name?" "I forgot it. but I've got it written down somewhere. Well, what could I say?" "What did you say, Henry?" "I said if you want to come it's all right with me, but I understand most of the spills have been cleaned up." "And what did she say to that?" "SHE SAID she knew of several coves in the area that were still covered with oil. Well, I was going out on the private plane and one person more or less didn't make any difference to me, so 1 said I guess she could come along." "You're all heart, Henry." "I DIDN'T THINK x anything more about it. Because I've been so upset a'bout
the economy, I can't devote my mind to anything else. When we got to L.A., I went right into a series of meetings and the woman went off to hear a lecture by Ralph Nader. "Then she called me at company headquarters in Los Angeles and said she was going up to Santa Barbara. It was a funny coincidence because, just before the call, our research people asked me if I would drive up there to test the mileage of the LTD with a new catalytic converter. As you know, Cristina, I hate to drive alone so I asked her if she'd like to come with me." "AND SHE accepted?" "Well, it saved her the bus fare." "It certainly did." "ANYWAY WE started driving up and I kept my eye on the gas gauge. I couldn't believe it! An LTD usually doesn't get more than 10 miles to the gallon, and this was getting 18. I was so elated we stopped at a McDonald's to have a hamburger and a bottle of champagne." "I didn't know McDonald's sold champagne." "They keep it under the counter where the kids won't see it. So then we took off again. And this is the real scary part. Something happened to the steering column on the car, and it kept weaving over to the wrong side of the road." "POOR DARLING. You must have been frightened." "Scared out of my wits. Fortunately, there was a squad car behind me and they helped me take the car to the police station." "And the young lady?" "SHE WAS TERRIBLY upset. By the time, we got everything straightened out it was too late at night to see the oil spills. Well, that s it. You believe me, Cristina, don't you?" "No, Henry, I don't." "My grandfather was right." "About what?" He said, 'Never complain and never explain.*"
President issues challenge I wish to thank the candidates and the poll workers who took part in the election, Tuesday, September 9. Too often when things seem to be going well, people relax back into their own worlds. For systems to keep pace with the times, they must be maintained. The decade of the 60's was noted for student activism. Today, the - system is threatened by mixed-feelings of approval, apathy and despair. I challenge the students who harbor the forestated feelings and who are tempted to sit on the sidelines to take an active interest in our college's maintenance and growth. It is erroneous to think that you can go out to help the world upon graduation, and yet ignore your community during the period of your preparation for the world. The purpose of this letter is not to condemn, but rather to encourage.
The Student Congress, and I also believe the faculty and the administration, are waiting for your ideas and involvement. Individuals places of responsibility do not have a monopoly on "good ideas." This year, 1 encourage you to use Student Congress and the Student Body Officers as your liaison. The purpose of a college is to serve the student and its community, not visa versa. The fulfillment of this function by the college can only take place when students understand and meet their role expectations in-dnd out of the classroom. I wish each of you a successful year, academically, socially and spiritually. May this be a year of growth and satisfaction. Jim Donkersloot Student Congress President

San Francisco Company brings Hamlet to Holland by Samme Orwig and Paul Burmeister On Monday night, September 8, the New Shakespeare Company of San Francisco put on their production of Hamlet. The play seemed to have quite an appeal to the Holland community, as the performance was well attended. THE PLAY opens with the ghost of the former king, Hamlet's father, appearing before Horatio and the guards. Horatio tells his friend Hamlet of this apparition, and Hamlet decides to try and talk to the ghost. Hamlet learns from the ghost that his uncle killed the former king, and is then told to seek revenge. In seeking revenge, Hamlet works to convince the kingdom he is mad, thereby hoping to get a confession from his uncle. His plot fails, as the people around him believe that his craziness is justified. Some thought that it was due to his love for Ophelia, others thought it was because of his father's death. HAMLET'S actions toward Ophelia alone cause enough distress among his relatives. For example, Ophelia's father, Polonius, talks about t h e situation with the king and queen and they decide to have Hamlet watched. Two of Hamlet's friends, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, arrive to watch him. Hamlet is aware of their actions, and schemes around them. At this time, Horatio is the only person in whom Hamlet will confide. SOON AFTER the arrival of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, a group of playmakers come to the kingdom. Hamlet sees this as a device for tricking his uncle into a confession and asks them to put on a play which would simulate the murder of his father. His idea was correct, as Hamlet's uncle lost his composure during the performance, thereby disclosing guilt.
AFTER THIS, Hamlet is determined to kill his uncle, but fails to do so. He goes to talk with his mother, and drives her to guilt with questions concerning her recent marriage and his father's death..Polonius hears this conversation, and in mistaking him for his uncle, Hamlet kills him. Now confirmed as a madman, Hamlet is banished from Denmark and is sent to England. During this time, Ophelia goes mad over the death of her father. Her brother Laertes returns and finds her in this state. Ophelia drowns herself and Laertes is determined to take vengeance on Hamlet. LAERTES goes to the king where they plot to kill Hamlet. Hamlet returns, and he and Laertes have a duel. Laertes plans to kill Hamlet with poison on his sword. The king has also prepared a cup of poison in case this plan fails. Laertes manages to strike Hamlet, and in the commotion the Queen mistakenly drinks the poison. Seeing this, Hamlet strikes Laertes with the poisoned sword and then stabs his uncle, thus accomplishing the revenge'for this father. CONCERNING the actual production, the company must be given credit for their work, especially when considering tne amount, or lack, of space provided in the Holland Civic Center. It is commendable for a Shakespeare company to put. on a successful play in a simple gymnasium, as the two don't seem to go together. THE SMALL size of the stage was the only thing that actually detracted from the quality of the play. The players compensated for this by making good use of the offstage areas. The use of side entrances seemed to enlarge the stage and made the audience feel more a part of the production. . THE STAGE set itself was an interesting one, and was capable of holding the audience's attention by making good use of all areas and levels of the stage.

True to Shakespearean theatre, the stage was not at all fancy and there were few props. No set changes were necessary as it was left to the audience to envision each scene. As for the actors, each role was generally well cast, although the men's came on much better than did the two women's roles. The role of Hamlet, played by company actor Kevin Gardiner, dramatically display^ the emotional sensationalism as is characteristic of so much of the playwright's works. Gardiner combined a lively realism along with a genius of portrayal. THE PART OF Horatio is aptly played by Paul Kreshna, who seems to add a somewhat sentimental passion toward his loved friend Hamlet. He is understanding, gentle and respectful. Polonius, Robert Pregentek of the company, is outstanding in his role of the witty

old lord Chamberlain. His paternal wisdom, distraught countenance and senile body are all vividly expressed. SHAKESPEARE, m each of his plays, aims for the ultimate success. The Company from San Francisco does well in achieving that performing excellence which separates Shakespeare's stage triumphs from the mediocrity of soon forgotten playwrights. The acting company successfully animates Shakespeare's ability to give form and life to the eternal problems at the heart of man and his nature. Hamlet becomes many men in his role, and brings significance to each generation. The New Shakespeare Company seemed able to convey such messages to its audience, and though some people left the performance only with a bit more culture than before the performance, it was wellreceived by everyone who attended.

Verhey acquired a B.A. degree from Calvin College, his B.D. at Calvin Theological Seminary and his Ph.D. from Yale University. "THE STUDENTS that 1 have met are very pleasant. I am having a good time with my colleagues and haVe been enjoying^teaching," Verhey stated. He said that the only problem he is having is making the transition from seminary teaching to college teaching.

Uncooperative co-ops by Rich Williams
Chapel forms worship group
A new and different type of worship group is being formed through the chapel office. The group will sponsor creative worship and youth workshops in the Holland area. Creativity involving music, drama, and children will be the main emphasis. The curious and interested should meet at 1 p.m. Saturday in Chapel 13, for a quick organizational meeting.
CLB gives cottages co-op housing option This year cottages will be given a chance to choose involvement in the co-op housing program. Last year the Campus Life Board task force agreed upon' the following definition: "Co-op housing is the process of students jointly assuming responsibility for simple maintenance chores of a particular living unit with a concurrent saving of money to the college and/or the students involved." 'Elaine Van Liere, who was Director of Student Residence last year, chaired the task force and is "excited about the opportunity given to Hope students." Each unit is free to determine its own co-op program as well as choosing an R.A. to act as a liason representing the cottage in meetings with the dean's office.
HOLLAND RELIABLE MOTOR SUPPLY 202 EAST EIGHTH STREET TELEPHONE: 396-4686
If a cottage chooses to participate in the co-op program, the cottage residents choose from among their numbers who will do simple maintenance chores for pay, rather than depending on the Hope maintenance staff. A unit has the option of deciding how much work to take on. For example, they can choose to clean the inside j)f the house, but leave the yard work to the maintenance staff. The pay a person receives will be the average student wage. This differs from the maintenance staff wages because their pay reflects the number of ^ears they have worked for Hope. Van Liere expects four or five cottages to participate in the program. This year is an experimental, year for the program and Van Liere said its success will depend on the, "degree of involvement among students.". She had praise for the concept stating that, "the co-op can establish a spirit of community within the cottage itself, with a feeling of pride about what they have accomplished."
When 1 first arived in Holland, radicalism was still a dirty word on Hope's campus. The ideology of the Left Wing was being tested in the streets and the chaff of theoretical 'bun' warmers was separated from the violent action of the Weather Underground. x IT WAS a time, to paraphrase Julian Bond, when long hair meant I'm a brother in high and low times. Today long hair hides a red neck. To make a long story short, there was not enough disenchantment of the masses to fuel the violent revolution, which in turn backwashed the entire left wing. THOSE OF us young enough to remain idealistic about the hope for socialism in this country began to look for positive alternatives to the decaying and corrupt sytem which the majority of Americans still pledged allegiance to, "right or wrong," as the saying goes. One of the largest movements today which we are building is the cooperative movement. In Holland this movement is represented by two food co-ops and a community garden. THE CATCH word in the 60's was, "don't trust anyone over 20." The reason for this was most people were unhip ideologically. They were the narcs, F.B.I, informants, the C.LA. The last two years have proven that these were not paranoid 1 delusions from smoking too much dope. Hard core radicals were even more suspicious of another group not because they were informers but because they were detractors to the cause. We called them "sunshine radicals." YOU COULD always point them out at a rally, for they only showed up when the weather was nice. Their weapons were the language and clothes of the hip, with ample supplies of dope, rock 'n roll, and frisbees to play in the sun with, thus the name sunshine radical. But what we didn't realize was that a more dangerous element existed, at least on Hope's campus. Hope's libertarian atn\osphere when I arrived 5 years ago found these people huddled with students in subterranean caverns such as Skiles. THIS WAS a time when frats and sororities found it more challenging to swig their virgin beers in the basement of the house rather than a decadent downtown bar. . With a new administration and paranoia over Christian conservatism talk of dissent was removed from places where alcohol was -'consumed and moved to the Kletz, as if to lend an air of respectability over a hot cup of java. UNDAUNTED some began the re-exploration of Calvin's institutes, others went home and griped to their wives, still others simply got up and left. The most sly were the ones who subtly manipulated
students, "to do as I say but not as I do." Ironically, they were known as the long hairs a generation ago. If you still don't know who I'm talking about, I am speaking, of Hope College professors, particularly those who like to wage the ideological battle against our corrupt society. THE REASON I believe I can make this indictment is in working side by side with them. I am a firm believer in the test of a person's character, that is, if they can work in cooperation with other people. Over and over again I find faculty the hardest people to work with. The maxim seems to be: the greater the expectations in the classroom of the student to attain academic excellence, the less ability for the professor to work cooperatively with other types of people; there are some outstanding exceptions to the rule. SOME EVEN go so far as to involve themselves in a cause, more or less by proxy through their wives. But this seems not so much a problem of male chauvinism as it is one of a broader type which I call work chauvinism. The main rationalization which abounds is that we, as non-teachers, cannot appreciate the amount of time and energy it takes to educate. ALONG WITH this part usually comes the second part implied if not directly stated; as students, wives, skilled and unskilled laborers we should play nigger to the social programs that the intellectuals, the educators of the western world produce. 1 can't speak for wives, skilled or unskilled laborers, but I can speak as a student and as an active participant in the cooperative movement. Students have been badly underestimated in their ability to participate. WHAT IS often most grumbled about is that students are undependable. Working with them, 1 have found this not to be true. Rather it is a fact of student life that they are transient. Students are too idealistic in their hopes is another argument. I have seen both the corrupt ideals of the Kennedy and the Nixon years, and the lack of the stabilizing influence of educators. THE QUESTION is not whether to be part of the struggle. It js rather one of academic integrity on two fronts. One is in bridging the dichotomy between academics and action. The second is particularly a Hope problem; and that is to rest the power of decisions on academic from the administration and its puppets and place it back in the hands of the educators. Professors can return to educating in the classroom rather than losing so much energy in preparing course work. Maybe then they will have time to involve themselves in what they talk about.

" H o p e claims to be a " C h r i s t i a n c o m m u n i t y , " yet the t e r m r e m a i n s u n d e f i n e d .

Whenever the suggestion of allowing d r i n k i n g in d o r m s arises, the f a c t i o n s divide u p b e t w e e n w h o has which idea a b o u t w h a t a Christian college should be.

Dutchmen open season against Anderson tomorrow Tomorrow marks the beginning of the 1975 season for the Hope • football squad as they clash with Anderson College in Indiana. Anderson has a lot of the same personnel that they had last year when they carried a 3 - 6 record. HOWEVER, they have promised Coach Smith that, "we won't be as easy as we were last time." 1974 was the first meeting for the two schools and Hope dominated, winning 3 1 - 6 . But senior end, Dave Teater, says, "Last year's score was not indicative. They came out tough and we thought it was going to be a long afternoon. Then they just sort of fell apart and we got all the breaks. "ALSO we will be playing on their home field and after we humiliated them last year, they will be fired up. They're going to
be a pretty tough team." Of course the Dutchmen won't be sitting back waiting. Offensive tackle Tom Richards says, "I'm ready to hit someone besides our own people. The offense is untested but this game will give us a chance to see how good we are. "EVERYONE always talks about the defense but it's time to stop playing in t h e defense's light. This is our turn to be proud. We'll put the points on the board and the defense will continue to do their job as always." Defensive tackle Craig Van Tuinen seems to agree. "The offense is solid and the line is excellent. In fact, we're tougher at every position over last year on the line. I ALSO think we're stronger at tailback and fullback and we have a bigger threat at wingback be-
cause of the increased speed there." The line, comprised of Duff DeZwaan, John Smith, David' Zessin, Leonard Fazio, Richards and Teater, has everyone excited. Defensive halfback Rich McLouth •says, "The offense has improved a lot, especially in the running game," and cited line blocking and "good down field blocking" as the big reasons. TEATER backs him up. "The offense is moving the ball well on our defense, which is probably the toughest we will face all year. We're running a lot because we're so strong there. "We have excellent runners and the ,line blocking has been fantastic. This could be the best offensive unit I've played on at Hope." IN THE backfield Bill
Expect good season
Hockey team looks promising
FORE! It looks like a distorted version of golf, but it's actually Hope's field hockey team in action.
Field hockey this fall should prove to be a winning season. The team has a large number of returning players including seniors: Sue Berger, Marg Byl, Anne Dimitre, Julie Egbert, Carol Fret, Diane Harvey, Jean Lambert and Cathy LeBoeuf. Besides those returning, a strong group of talented newcomers have joined the team. Coach • Leslie Swertfager feels that ' the team looks very prosperous and is really excited about the whole outlook of the season. Swertfager also adds that the members of the team are all hardworking, enthusiastic and dedicated players. •Talking with some returning players, they feel the team has the ability and enthusiasm . which should help them go a long way> Of course the big game they're looking forward to is against Calvin on September 24th at 4 p.m. at Calvin. According to Coach Swertfager, ' T h e whole team would appreciate school support not only against Calvin but at all their home games." Home game schedule for this season is: Olivet-Get. 9, Kalamazoo-Oct. 14 and Calvin-Oct.' 16. All games start at 4 p.m.
rom t i k e skMSffsyg;
Blacquiere will start at fullback with Kurt Bennett at tailback and Tim Van Ueest calling the signals. "Van Heest looks good," says McLouth. "He hasn't been in a pressure situation yet but I have confidence in him. He'll do the job." IF THE offense does get stopped short of fhe goal line, the coaching staff will be more willing this year to turn to the kicking toe of Jim Miller. "Miller set a Hope field goal record last year and we have more confidence in the kicking game now," stated Van Tuinen. THE DEFENSIVE unit will be tough although injuries have deprived them of two key players as Tom Barkes and Bob Coleman, both two time lettermen, will be unable to play against Anderson. John Bonnette and Todd Harbum will replace them and both have looked really good in practice. McLouth says the squad will
be "as tough or tougher than last year's, but we haven't had much chance to work as a unit. "WE COULD be shaky at the beginning of the game." Van Tuinen expresses the same concern. "The coaches have confidence in us and so they're working more on offense. "There really hasn't been enough time for the defense to coordinate. We'll be good but not up to potential." THE GAME will feature a contrast in styles as Anderson will set up in a fullhouse backfield and probably utilize a passing attack. Hope will stick with their effective grind it out offense, passing only when necessary. "We have a long way to go to get to Anderson," says Richards. "We'll have a lot of tired people but the game will make us closer as a team. We'll be ready." The prediction here is Hope 27, Anderson 7.

SOMETHING NEW & DIFFERENT
The goal is goals by Doug Irons "Producing goals will be the key for us this season," predicted soccer head Coach Glenn Van Wieren. 4kWe expect to be very strong defensively, but have to get some goals to win the big ones." GRADUATION claimed Mark Van Voorst, who alone accounted for 10 of Hope's 18 goals last year. Also gone are fullback Bill Lawton and goalie Bob Luidens, important men in the 1974 team which finished second in the MIAA. John Clough's ineligibility was another blow to the team, as it left only two returnees who scored a goal last year. DESPITE this. Van Wieren is excited. "We have 32 guys out, a good number. There is strong competition for every position, and we had a solid nucleus to build from." Van Wieren believes Hope will definitely improve as the season progresses, when the group starts to work as a team. . v ANOTHER REAL asset to the team this year is Assistant Coach Dave De Velder. "This is the hardest working group I've ever had the pleasure to work, with; they're working very hard," Van Wieren stated. Sharing the duties as goalie this fall will be junior Gerry Frazier and freshman Dave Johnson. ONE OF the great sources of defensive power for the Dutchmen will be the four returning starter^ for the three fullback spots. Heading the list is all-MIAA pick and team co-captain, Mahmood Masghati. Brad Kirk, Sherwood Quiring and two-year starter Bill Dyrsten
complete the strong quartet at this position. HALFBACK provides another strong area of the Hope lineup. Co-captain, two-time all-MIAA and last year's league co-MVP Glenn Swier leads this cast. Glenn Freisatz, Joe Dellaria, Tom Van Tassel and Bob McBride are also competing for halfback spots." Injury and illness have thinned the ranks of prospective forwards, as Jim Vannice and Paul Toth are temporarily out of action. HOWEVER, Mark McCullough, Mohamed AlMalki, Russ Tenpas, Mark Holtz and Habib Ismail will definitely be keeping Hope competitive here. Exciting newcomers this year are freshmen Kurt Beerboom, John Christofferson, Renze Hoeksema, Juan Ramirez, Jim McCallum, Paul Nieusma and sophomore Yuji Takarada. Van Wieren is looking for these play ere to work their way into the squad. REGARDING the MIAA, Van Wieren noted that Olivet will be fielding a squad for the first time this season, and Alma will join in 1976, making six MIAA soccer teams.The league will be strong overall, with Calvin and Kalamazoo probably the strongest teams again. "WE'LL BE competitive with Calvin and Kalamazoo. This group is very diligent, hard-working and very hungry for goals,*' Van Wieren asserted. Their first home contest is Wednesday, Sept. 17, 3:30 at Van Raalte Field, and student support is appreciated. Be there, it should be an exciting season!
