A Taste of G.R. (Ford) Since his political career began. Gerald R. Ford, the 38th President of the United States, has brought national attention to his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. And now, five years after Ford left the highest political office in the country. Grand Rapids, through the dedication of the Gerald R. Ford Museum, is gving special attention to Ford...and to the city. Gala events have been stirring in Grand Rapids all week, and the celebration will climax Friday, September 18, when the museum/Will be officially dedicated. Political leaders of at least four nations will be on hand for the ceremonies. In addition, many of America's top names from the entertainment field will be among more than 2^,000 spectators expected for the rites on the banks of the Grand River. Attractions in the Ford Museum include some of the Fords' own belongings, for instance, several of Jerry's pipes and several of Betty's gowns. One display features Ford's football career. There is also an Oval Office display featuring furniture made by the same manufacturers of the original Oval Office furniture. Obviously Grand Rapids is proud of Gerald Ford, a native of that city and a former congressman from the Fifth Congressional district when it was composed of Kent and Ottawa counties. But I question the motives of the people of Grand Rapids who cherish their award that declares them to be an "All American City." The public relations people with the Ford extravaganza (obviously lovers of the A.A.C. award) have been emphasizing their desire to permanently shed any misconceptions that Grand Rapids is "Hicksville" and that the sidewalks there are rolled up at 9 pm. every night. Of course, Jerry probably doesn't mind that his name is being used to bring fame to Grand Rapids. He has been loyal to his friends in Western Michigan throughout his political career, including the years when he was President of the United States, and especially during election year, 1976, when he visited the area at least twice. Ford was in Holland in May, 1976. The occasion; Tulip Time. Susan Ford, the President's daughter, was Grand Marshall of the Parade of Bands that Bicentennial year. As Susan sat perched on the back of a convertible, holding an umbrella above her head, Gerald and Betty followed her in the limousine, waving through the roof of the vehicle and smiling at adoring onlookers. Later that day the Fords had dinner in Phelps dining hall with Holland's mayor and his family. 1 was a sixteen-year-old Dutch dancer then. My partner, Mary, was the mayor's daughter. Mary danced without her wooden shoes that Saturday night because the Fords had autographed them for her at dinner, and she didn't want to risk breaking the pair. ' If only Mary had taken my shoes with her...,'1 thought. #

Try for Safety by Sandy Wisslnk Since the first of September, thirty-nine offenses have been reported to the Department of Public Safety. Although the number is not terribly large, and most problems were minor ones, officials feel that they should not go unnoticed. The largest number of complaints were under the category of larceny. There have been fourteen cases recorded in the department's books to date. There have also been reports of vandalism, disorderly conduct, and mishaps related to fire or firearms.

Later that year President Ford was in Grand Rapids. At that time he had just won the Republican nomination, and was on the verge of losing his bid for a second term in office to a Georgian peanut farmer. Holland's Dutch dancers were asked to be in a parade to welcome the President. I was delighted to participate and wore a sign saying, "Wooden shoe really rather have a Ford?" I didn't realize it then, but I had bought Gerald R. Ford like a Madison Ave. package of cereal. I have no intentions of participating in the dedication ceremonies of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum tomorrow. But I'm sure there will be plenty of A.A.C. award lovers. Bob Hope lovers, Susan Anton lovers, and even some Jerry Ford lovers there to enjoy the festivities. As for me? I still love celebrations as much as anyone, but I'm buying my cereal at the co-op these days.

Sobinio Takes Over I.R. by Tim Gortsema The Hope College Department of International Education will have a new look this year, beginning with a new director. This summer Neal Sobania, a 1968 Hope graduate, took over as director of the Department of I.E. and has been diligently working toward a new image for it ever since. "This year will be a planning and assessment y e a r , " said Sobania. "We want to decide if the programs being offered are appropriate for a student of the "SOs." As of now, he plans on continuing all of the present programs and, more importantly. giving them better publicity. "I want to approach the freshmen and sophomores about the opportunities of studying abroad," he said. "It has to be done now, before it's too late." His objective is to make the Office of International E d u c a t i o n a c a t a l y s t fbr f a c u l t y members, students, and clubs who a f t in-

terested in international affairs. "I want to be able to help anyone who is interested in what's going on today in the world, or who is planning to go to another country, even if only for pleasure," he said. One way he will do this is by being available at weekly luncheons beginning in October. Sobania and a program director or student who has been abroad will dine in the Phelps Cafeteria. A small sign on their table will indicate the topic for discussion and anyone interested is invited to join them for an informal lunch and conversation. Another project he is working on is the possibility of two or three symposiums on international issues. These will be held throughout the year and may last a half or full day. Sobania reiterated, "My door is always open and anyone is welcome. I want to be able to help ^s much as"possible."

for Depree Opening by Timothy Shaffer Two hundred years ago, the government of the Netherlands signed a treaty of friendship with a fledgling nation, the United States of America. This was the first such treaty between the United States and a European country since the American Revokitloo. Next fall, in celebration of the bicentennial of the Amity and Commerce Treaty, and in conjunction with the opening of the DePree Art Gallery at Hope College, transatlantic festivities will occur that Will Include an exhibition at the gallery of some of the finest Dutch art of the last century. Hope College President, Gordon Van Wylen, In an Interview with the anchor last week, Intimated that a visit from the queen of the Netherlands, Queen Juliana, might even be In the offing. He stressed, however, that her visit would most likely come early In the summer. The DePree Gallery, currently known as the Sligh building, represents the next major step in the college's program to provide the Hope community with the best possible facilities. According to Van Wylen, the college plans to go out for bids sometime in early October. The major ob-

jective at the present time Is to raise the necessary funds before constuctkm begins An original college estimate of 1700,000 ballooned to $1.3 million when the architects proposal was submitted. According to Van Wylen, the architects M are working closely with the people who 13 are going to occupy the building. In order that the building may best fulfill the s nttds of those who will use It." CD The renovation of the Sligh building is proceeding slowly because of the need to raise more funds. A new approach to fund-raising is being used to finance the 8 gallery to be named In honor of the former Hope College chairman of the Board of Trustees, Hugh DePree. According to Van Wylen, lucheon and dinner meetings will be held in various cities throughout the country, including New Vork, Muskegon, Grand Rapids and Holland. The meetings will include presentations of Dutch history and Dutch art. After the presentations, donations to the gallery will be solicited. If everything goes according t o plan, the DePree Gallery will officially open in August, ensuring full operational capacity for the 1982-83 academic year.

Peace of Mind by Dan Rutt What does liberal arts have to do with the arms race^ I sometimes define liberal arts as learning a little bit of everything, but not much of anything. This is largely sarcastic, but it does help bring us to the main goal of a liberal arts education. A liberal arts education opens one's mind to many, and often conflicting, viewpoints which must all be looked upon with at least some semblance of knowledge and understanding. It helps us to look at things from all points of view. If one is focusing on an area which is too small, it is easy to lose understanding of the picture as a whole. For example, if one understands the chemical and kinetic basis of combustion, but overlooks the more obvious difference between burning a few logs in the fireplace and setting the whole house on fire, then one's knowledge becomes trival in trying to attain a desired end. Assuming one's desired end is to stay warm, then a few logs in the fireplace will suffice. If, however, one is looking at only why something is happening and fails to see what is happening, then why not ignite the whole house? Wouldn't one be a lot warmer? Believe it or not, this is the link between liberal arts and the arms race. We are ignoring what the a r m s race is and we are looking only at why the a r m s race is. Why the a r m s race is continuing is to protect and defend our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. But what the a r m s race is doing is another matter. It is easily acknowledged that defending our life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness is noble and just, but if we destoy these very things in trying to attain them, then we

have gained nothing, and may even lose sonething along the way. I contend that, in essence, we are burning our house down to stay warm. Burning one's house down is, obviously, not good in the long run. even though it may appear to be just wonderful for a few hours on a cold night. But it should also be obvious that telling others we will kill them if they are not our friends is a kind of peace that is not good in the long run either, even though it may appear just wonderful for a few years in a cold war. The short-term appearances and the longterm realities of the a r m s race should be faced, understood, and reconciled. In following this, we must approach the root problems of the a r m s race in a liberal arts manner' in order to understand its wide-range effects. If we truly understand the reason for the a r m s r a c e peace-then we can look at possible alternatives unblasedly and make Intelligent decisions. But if we accept the " w h y " of the arms race as simple justification for " w h a t " we are doing, we will never have any apparent reason to use any other methods. The a r m s race penetrates all segments of life and thus, by knowing its effects on society, we can come to learn the true meaning of the a r m s race. I will expound on this topic In a series of articles which will introduce a little bit of everything about the a r m s race. I ' m sure that you will be surprised when you understand its far-reaching effects. I will announce the topics a week ahead of time, but if you have any special suggestions for a topic, I would love to take requests. (continued on p. 6)

Students study the Sundog. by Crystal Nannenga "Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in." This quotation, taken from Amy Lowell, seems to capture artist Bill Mayer's philosophy about his work of modern imagery, SUNDOG. SUNDOG, which is located on the west side of Phelps Hall near the greenhouse,

ohoto by John Hargrove is a new cultural addition to the Hope campus. It weighs nearly 3/4 of a ton, is painted a burnt red, and stands approximately eight feet high. It is a replica of the SUNDOG Mayer plans to build for exhibition in Washington,D C., which will be almost three and one half times as large. How do the people of Hope College feel about SUNDOG? From students to adiministrators, views varied widely. (continued on p. 6)

Windmill Island Hosts Ox Roast by Mark Christensen

The 16th Annual Ox Roast at Windmill Island on Saturday was another Community Day success for both Holland citizens and Hope students. Nelson Bosman, a 1931 Hope College graduate, was first to introduce the idea of a Hope College/Holland Community Day event. Back in the mid to late sixties there was great student unrest nationwide. Hope College and the Holland community have always had a good relationship, however. And to lessen the possibility of disharmony during this trying time, the Ox Roast c a m e into being. For the first couple of years, the Ox Roast was held in the Pine Grove. Since then the picnic has been moved to various spots around Holland. In the early seventies It was suggested

tnat the Ux Koast be combined with the first home football game. This was an attractive idea to many citizens in Holland who could buy a ticket to the football game and also be admitted to the Ox Roast and Windmill Island for a very reasonable price. This year's Ox Roast on Windmill Island had a turn out of approximately 3200 people, 725 of them being Hope students according to Western Food Service. Despite Hope's defeat against Wabash it was a beautiful day and everyone was anxious to eat a good meal and tour the island. Once again Hope College and . the citizens of Holland shared an exciting afternoon of football, food, and merriment, creating a feeling of fellowship for everyone who lives in the community of Holland.

What Next?! by Cory D. Mackwood The y e a r is 2002; Hope College h a s just celebrated its 135th a c a d e m i c y ^ a r . Although the school grew in the ISTO's and early 1980's, o f f e r i n g an excellent education to all who could " m a k e the g r a d e s , " only the affluent now g r a c e the admissions office and eventually the cubicles of Van Zoeren L i b r a r y . Costs, which rose in the late lOTO's through the e a r l y IQSO's, have leveled off a t 13% a y e a r , causing the cost of an education to rise also. You see. the cost of an education is $69,316 a year (including room and board, of course) at the beginning of this 135th year. Sound e x a g g e r a t e d ? Well, it might not be. Over the last t h r e e a c a d e m i c y e a r s the cost of a Hope education has risen slightly more t h a n 4 3 % a year. If this t r e n d w e r e to continue over the next twenty y e a r s , until 2002. the cost of one a c a d e m i c y e a r would be $69,316. M e m b e r s of the newly formed class of 1985 might be interested to know that this s a m e 13% a y e a r increase over the next three y e a r s would push costs up to $9,810 a y e a r by their senior year. There a r e m a n y who would a r g u e that costs will not rise 13% a y e a r for the next twenty years, that "things will get better " Okay, things might get slightly b e t t e r - e v e n much better. L e t ' s say that costs rise 13% for five years, then drop to 6.5% a y e a r for the remaining fifteen years. (You r e m e m b e r 6.5% inflation-and $35 a gallon gasoline, right?) This would still push costs at Hope to over $30,000 a v e a r b v 2002.

What does this m e a n to us? A f t e r all, either our p a r e n t s pay for our education, or we pay for it ourselves with g r a n t s and scholarships m a k i n g u p s o m e of the deficit we c a n ' t handle. Well, twenty y e a r s f r o m now m a n y of us will have children g r a d u a t i n g f r o m high school and ready to enter college. But will we be r e a d y ? Will we h a v e saved enough to send them to any college, m u c h less a school like Hope? We'll s a v e s o m e money, m a y b e even a lot of money, but probably not nearly enough. If our present governmental administration gets its way, they will set a trend that insures that g r a n t s and scholarships will not m a k e up for what we, the parents, c a n ' t pay for. What does this mean for the f u t u r e ? It must stop sometime, right? While s t a t e colleges o p e r a t e in the red each y e a r (with a deficit), many p r i v a t e institutions continue to o p e r a t e in the black ( m a k i n g a profit). While m a n y m a j d r corporations have climbing profits, t h e r e s e e m s to be little interest in the economic situations of colleges and universities, which, by the way, provide these corporations with their educated w o r k f o r c e s We must become more active as a society to alleviate some of the economic burden, or we will suffer as a society. Education, so we a r e told, is a cornerstone of success. We a r e also told that everyone is entitled to this education. We must ask ourselves if education is becoming like that private country club down the road, open only to those affluent enough to join and with enough power and status so as not to need to pay.

March to Hope by EricPritz I had worked all s u m m e r long, t r a p p e d in the bowels of a hot and noisy factory while most people with any b r a i n s slept. I worshipped the 6 a.m. buzzer. I loathed my job. 1 looked forward only to that golden week of vacation a t the end of August. In those precious few d a y s I w a s determined to m a k e every m o m e n t count. / So I started out m y " v a c a t i o n " by getting on a bus with twenty.-five s c r e a m i n g , street-wise city kids and a like n u m b e r of Hope students who w e r e shocked, nervous, and temporarily having second thoughts. Yes folks, I had just taken my first few steps on the " M a r c h to Hope." March to Hope is an annual p r o g r a m sponsored by Hope College and the Michigan D e p a r t m e n t of Social Services. It consists of pairing, each of approximately 25 Hope students with an eleven or twelve year old youth f r o m Muskegon, Michigan. Together, they all set off during the last week in August for a m e m o r a b l e hike around B e a v e r Island, located in northern Lake Michigan. The " M a r c h " is c o o r d i n a t e d by Glenn Hayden, counselor for the Muskegon Youth Contact Center, and Dr. Carl Schackow, a professor of education here at Hope. "It is difficult to simply s t a t e what the purpose of the March to Hope is." s a y s Dr. Schackow. " F o r the feeling of personal success and a c h i e v e m e n t , something that h a s not c o m e easily to m a n y of them. F o r the Hope students, it's a chance to live their liberal a r t s experience. They can put their knowledge, opinions, philosophies, and ideas into action. And perhaps, in the course of the

week, expand or change their thoughts. For everyone, it's a chance to grow and learn from each other in a unique setting." Of course, the setting w a s only one of many unique qualities that I felt the March to Hope possessed. And if s o m e were less desirable t h a n others, at least they were m e m o r a b l e . F o r example, I still have n i g h t m a r e s of sittthg on a bus while having to e n d u r e a rousing encore of "Ninety-nine Bottles of Beer on the Wall." T h e foot blisters w e r e unique and m e m o r a b l e . And so w a s our first "dinn e r " on the island. We w e r e handed r a w potatoes, onions, c a r r o t s , and a few limp hotdogs. In that m o m e n t , my vision of leisurely dining in a cozy pine lodge w a s unmercifully squelched. There w a s also the unique experience of truly realizing people's dependence on others, both physically and mentally. And of seeing how quickly and d e a r l y a concentrated dose of love and patience (and a bit of dicipline, p e r h a p s ) can affect both a child and an adult. T h e M a r c h also gave me a unique appreciation of some of the things we take for g r a n t e d : friends, nature, ice cubes, toothpicks, shoelaces, etc. But this doesn't even s c r a t c h the surface of what the March to Hope really is. You have to experience it to understand it. And if you do, you will probably c o m e away feeling like you got m o r e out of it than anyone else. I did. Editor's note March to Hope is a two credit course offered through the Education Department of Hope College. For more information, contact Dr. Carl Schackow, or any veteran marcher.

Men's Cross Country Looks Toward the Mountaintop by Steve Underwood After a season like the 1980 campaign, one might think that the Hope men's cross country team would be satiated. Indeed the Flying Dutchmen, after losing to Ml A A foes Albion and Calvin in earty season meets, came on like gangbusters In the stretch. When the dust cleared, they had captured the M1AA championship (their ninth in the last decade), the NCAA Division III Great Lakes Regional (both hosted by Hope), and a sixth place finish in the NCAA National Meet. That final performance marked the highest spot an M1AA cross-country team has ever finished in national competition. # But veteran Coach William VanderbiJt has other ideas besides just sitting back, 1 '. When you get this close (sixth) it gets you excited about maybe making it to the top three in the Nationals. With the new people coming in and potentially outstanding people returning. 1 really believe we have an excellent chance to accomplish this goal." Vanderbilt appears to have the troops and the numbers to back up his words. Leading the harriers are co-captains elect Mark Northuis and John Victor. For the towering Northuis it will be the final season of an illustrious career. The Grand Haven senior powered up the final hill of the Holland Country Club course in last year's M1AA meet to take the lead, then hung on to win in a then-course record time of 24:56 (five miles). At the finals in Rochester. New York, "Norty" missed All-American honors by just two places. Victor, a muscular junior from Zeeland, earned All-MIAA laurels in 1979. but perhaps had his best race in Rochester where he was 41st. rating him fourth among MIAA runners. The Dutch r e t u r n a n o t h e r AllConference runner in Steve Underwood of

East Lansing. The skinny sophomore notched victories In the Hope Invite and Regional Meets as he shared first man duties with Northuis most of last year. Depth has traditionally been a key for Hope cross-country teams and this year will be no exception. Juniors Larry F i s c h e r , J e f f C r u m b a u g h , Mike Schmuker. Mark Southwell, Paul Tannehill, and sophomore Rick Webster have all been irr the top seven on the team at one time or another during their careers. Sophomre Dick Hoekstra and Rick Krieger look ready to challange for those variety spots along with Juniors Bret Crock, and Kevin Tavernier. The newcomers will be led by top-notch Ferris State transfer Brain Taylor, a junior, and Soph Scott Vande Vorde. Holland High product Steve Elenbaas, one of Michigan's finest prep milers last season, heads the freshman class. Rich Helder, Kurt Martin, and Frank Scroki add further to Hope's wealth of contributors. Once again, Calvin and Abion look to be the top challengers in the conference race. The Knights return All-Americans John Brink and Kurt Mast from a team that finished right behind Hope in the MIAA and Regional tilts and claimed fifth In the Nationals. The Britons, a third MIAA team in the finals, return perennial stars Ron Lessard. Dave Vanderkooy and Kurt Schaefer. Kalamazoo is much improved and Alma is rarely weak. Olivet and Adrian will likely fight it out for sixth place, but could surprise a team too careless in preparation The Hope season opened with the Hope Invitational on Tuesday, Sept. 15. The harriers will travel to Earlham, Indiana this weekend for a GLCA meet, a tough invitational. Also hightlighting the

schedule is a complete slate of MIAA dual meets Including home clashes with AlWonfOltvet. Calvin, and Kazoo. All home meets are run at the Holland Country Club, The team will make three other trips to the Hoo&ier State for invttatkmais at Notre Dame and Tri-State, and the Regional meet at the latter location. Looming down the r6ad also is the 47th league meet at Kazoo's monster course, and the Nationals at Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania. Local excitement ran high in 1960 with Hope hosting and winning two big meets. Although those meets will be held elsewhere this year, the potential for the 1981 Hope cross.-country team to move toward the "mountaintop" may make this year more thrilling-than last.

Field Hockey Opening by Tammy Avrtt Hope's Flying Dutch field hockey team is opening their season this week with a game against Notre Dame on Tuesday and the GLCA tournament in Wooster. Ohio, over the weekend. A coaching change has been made this year with Marjorie Snyder assuming the role of head coach. Despite the loss of many seniors, there are many returning letter-winners. Polly Tamminga, junior, and Mary Lou Ireland, a senior, are the co-captains and

were also the leading scorers last year. Other returning letter-winners include Mary Gaffney, Mary Jo Gray, Heather Uecker, and Karen Van Der Eems. The team plays an expanded schedule this year due to a home and away-MIAA game arrangement. The Dutch will be trying to continue their winning streak, which includes repeating as AIAW Division III state champs. Last year was the first time Hope has ever won the championship.

Soccer Successfu by Eva Dean The Flying Dutchmen played their first two soccer games last weekend on the road against two Indiana opponents. The season began last Friday at Wabash, Indiana, followed by a Saturday game in Depauw. "It was a big weekend and we came out very successful," stated Coach Afman about the weekend games. The Dutch posted two shutouts as they humiliated Wabash (possibly avenging the football team's defeat), with a score of 3-0. They also defeated Depauw who, by the way, was ranked number one in the region. The first two goals of the 1981 season were booted in by Todd Kamstra. who is credited with 16 college career assists, just four short of the Hope career record. The third Hope goal was a one own goal against Wabash when their back mistakenly headed the ball past the Wabash goalie, off of A1 Crothers' punt. "Our defense was strong in both

g a m e s , " reported tri-captain Scott Savage. "But it was particularly strong in the second game." Again posting another shutout, the Dutchmen outclassed Depauw with a score of 2-0. Goals this time came from Paul Fowler and Dave Bopf. Sophomore goalie A1 Crothers made 19 saves on the weekend, thus adding the most crucial finish to leaving the Dutch's opponents scoreless. Crothers was also an all-MIAA goalie last fall as a freshman as he only let eight shots on goal out-smart him. To further prove how strong the booters defense performed, the Hope Dutchmen only allowed 32 shots on goal compared to their 50. Helping with assists were Fowler with two, Bopf, Crothers, and A1 Noerberg with one each. As a reminder to Hope soccer fans, the soccer team plays its first home game against Michigan State this weekend in the Holland Municipal Stadium at 1 p.m. Afman urges a strong crowd for this big game.

Hope Volleyball gets Bumped by Chuck Knebl The Flying Dutch opened their 1981 volleyball season with an up and down performance. The Kellogg Community College Invitational last Saturday provided the Dutch with "real good competition," according to Coach Sander DeHaan. The lady volleyballers finished the day with a 4-5 record, which included an exciting playoff game. Battling through "an overall real good tournament," DeHaan said, "the Dutch tied for second with Kalamazoo CC and Henry ForJ among their five team division. A hard fought 18-16 playoff loss to Henry Ford followed, which prevented the Dutch from reaching the semi-finals. DeHaan said the tournament will allow a "good evaluation" of the 1981 team.
