The paired class system operates as follows: Students r e g i s t e r for a s e t of t w o c o m b i n e d c l a s s e s to b e t a k e n c o n c u r r e n t l y .

Van Wylen also announced that he had finished a preliminary draft on his vision of Hope Coll e g e in t h e f u t u r e . T h e manuscript will be presented to the Board of Trustees during their October meeting. Van Wylen stated that the faculty had received a copy, and he requested their input. He then asked Congressmembers who were interested to also review the draft, which numbers some 60 pages, and give their suggestions and comments for its improvement. The floor was then opened for questions, with the sole question coming from Congressmember Ramin Ahmadi about the newly formed South Africa Committee. The committee, a response by the Board of Trustees to a letter from Student Congress on divestment, was formed over the summ e r to e x p l o r e a l t e r n a t e measures that could be taken against the policy of apartheid practiced by the South African government.

Van Wylen responded by saying that the committee m e m b e r s had just been finalized, and they would begin work soon. "That task force has been appointed and will begin to function," stated Van Wylen. Congress spent remainder of their meeting electing m e m b e r s — and some interested students who were present — to the various boards and committees of the Hope governance structure (see tables for designations). The next meeting was set for Thursday, September 24 at 10 p.m. in the Herrlck Room. Congressmembers voiced various concerns which they wished to see on the agenda. These concerns included South Africa, the phone system, purchasing a meal plan for a South African seminary student, the "long term burden of finances of WTHS," parking in the driveway of the old Public Safety building, the Durfee Hall stereo rule, and m a n d a t o r y a t t e n d a n c e in classes. An agenda for the next Student Congress meeting will be included in next week's Anchor.

And Just to round out her activities In between those two disparate endeavors, she can just as likely be found In the

music room of an elementary school surrounded by excited children who hang on every note she plays for them. Born Margaret Marian Turner, she studied at the Guildhall School of Music In London. She w a s headed for a career in classical music when she fell In love with jazz.

Perspectives on Abortion Browsing through a newspaper on my 2nd or 3rd day back at school—a newspaper entitled "Hope and Holland", a sort of "get acquainted with the area your school is located in" effort—I w a s s u r p r i s e d and somewhat angered by an advertisement I saw on the back page. The only full-color item in the p a p e r , the ad f e a t u r e d a photograph of a 19 week old fetus along with the caption: "When you and your doctor discuss having an abortion, you're forgetting someone." Aside from being the sort of sensationalist propoganda that generally ticks m e off, it got me back to asking a question that I think confronts us on a regular

basis here at Hope. That is, is it possible to get a liberal arts education at a Christian-based institution? Now perhaps you are asking "What does a newspaper ad have to do with my education"; and my answer is "everything", especially when the ad appears in a paper at least partially sponsored by your school. Certainly J * J taken steps toward Hope has parity of educational content in the classroom—we can now read bawdy, s e c u l a r , e v e n nonChristian literature in our classes, and seldom is the work down played simply because it t a k e s a d i f f e r e n t religious perspective than that of the Christian world. Perspective is a word that one must keep in mind while dealing with this question. Certainly I nneitinn that 0all ii respect the position things necessarily are taught from some perspective (at least all It " 'but' math • and sciences). " would be impossible to ask a human, an emotional and thinking creature to teach humanities from an objective standpoint. And even if that were possible, what could be gained? I think most people would agree that true-false testing in a humanities class is of little value—the student isn't required to think or r e a c t , only m e m o r i z e and regurgitate. But while I understand the need for a perspective, I f a ii to see the logic of a learning institution, (whose catalog p r e s e n t s the school as "interested in students who sincerely seek to enlarge their minds") presenting something as the perspective. That's not enlarging, it's narrowiiuz.

There is a big difference between using a perspective as a starting or reference point, and using that perspective as a blanket policy, a bias. Understandably, Hope would like us to accept their "way" as our own. So here we learn a lot more about Christianity than, say Buddhism. Pair enough—I know a lot more about American government than Russian. But I also know that the information on Russia is there if I want it. B a c k to t h e a r t i c l e : it represents only one side one extreme side—of a very complex ' ss i , 1 ^ * by aceptine ann(or) P y b l l s ^ ^ t h a t a d ' Hope f l " p l y aligns itself with the Right-toLife groups. In essence, they tell the young women of our campus that this is the only way. (Nowhere in the paper did I see an ad for pregnancy counseling, birth c o n t r o l alternatives, etc.) Only " - " j an ad that says, in essence. .any w ? ^ n l f n s ® e ^ i n § a " a tion is a cold-hearted murderess.

To the Editor: In response to Big Brother and Hope? by Lou Valantasis we wish to comment on student activity life at Hope College. We in no way address the administration's policy regarding offcampus parties, but instead would like to focus on on-campus activities sponsored by S.A.C. Much time is spent in planning activities that can be enjoyed by students a i Hope yet we can not p r o v i d e e n t e r t a i n m e n t for everyone's free time. In the coming months we have many things planned. These include bringing 3 of the top 10 collegic entertainers to campus including the Russian comedian Yakof Smirnoff.

To the Editor: So, you've had a hard day. You didn't really care to Integrate all those problems, you were blown off by your "friends" and the "things to do" pUe is growing at an exponential rate. If you're anything like me, one of your Initial Inclinations Is to pick up the phone and call good old home. You not-so-patlently wait until 11:00 (being the penny-pinching individual you are). Picking up the phone, with Its two-Inch cord, has become old hat and after these few short weeks of school, you've mastered the art of pacing despite the crazy angle your head finds Itself during, the fiasco. The calling card Is cranked out and you're all s e t - well, almost set. WHACK! Your room-

As for the campus dances, we admit that heat Is a problem but the snow will soon fall over the newly constructed and air conditioned Maas Center so PLEASE BE PATIENT. S.A.C. is also bringing many more recent films to campus for a very low price than ever before. This years HIT LIST is one of the best so far. If anyone is concerned with the quality of activities provided, we welcome them to participate in the planning of such activities. The Social Activities Committee is open to your suggestions.

Holland Sponsors Tailgater A "tailgate" picnic atmosphere will pervade the 20the. Annual Community Day Picnic to be held in Holland Saturday, Sept. 21. This year the college and community event will begin at 11:30 a.m. and continue to 2:00 p.m., a major change in the annual picnic. In past years, the picnic began later in the afternoon. The purchase of the ticket enables the holder to attend the Hope College football game against Carthage College of Kenosha, Wisconsin at 2:00 p.m. in Holland Municipal Stadium and enjoy the picnic meal at nearby Smallenberg Park before game time. Community Day is sponsored by Hope College to continue to foster the positive relationship that exists between the community and college. Several thousand people, including the college's student body, will be served at the picnic by city officials and college representatives. In the event of rain, the picnic will be moved to Phelps Hall on Hope's campus. The menu will include hamburgers or bratwurst, baked beans, cole slaw, potato chips, brownies, and a beverage.

Korote Kid Coming by David h u g n uarmer Well, SAC has been showing some hits already this year, but none as good as the next one up. This time it's Karate Kid. Most of you have probably seen it. A lot of you will probably go again. I don't have to convince you that it is a good movie. But, some people either didn't get the chance when it came to their town a couple summers ago, or didn't have the cash or the desire to see a movie then. Well, you can see it now. For those of you who haven't seen it, go. It's a great movie. Karate Kid has a lot of action, a lot of suspense, and a very sensitive story. It's a simple plot really, kid is down and out, old guy helps him, etc. But, it is still an enjoyable movie. Somethings are a bit unexpected, but not many. I don't know what more to say about it, and I've been writing too many reviews lately. I think I'll give m y able staff members a chance to go see some of these movies. As for the movie, what's to say? It's a good movie. Don't miss it, drag people with you. Have fun, tell your friends...

T h e r e will be - c o n t i n o u s musical entertainment in the park throughout the picnic acc o r d i n g to t h e f o l l o w i n g schedule: 11:30 a.m.- 12:30 p.m., American Legion Band; 12:301:30 p.m., Hope Jazz Ensemble; and 1:30 - 2 p.m., plus the football game's halftime show, Zeeland High School Marching Band. Entertainment for children will also be provided during the picnic. Tickets are $3 for senior citizens, $3.50 for anyone 12 years of age or older, and $1.50 for children 5-11 years of age. Children under five will be admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at the Holland Area Chamber of Commerce Office, Holland City Treasurer's Office, Hope College Business Office in the DeWitt Center, Evergreen Commons, First Michigan Bank and Trust Co. and branches. First of America Bank and branches. Old Kent Bank of Holland and branches, and Ottawa Savings and Loan Association and branches.

Students Respond to Food Drive The Food Drive for the Holland Community Action House is In full swing and will continue until Friday afternoon. Money and food donations are steadily filling the collection cans and boxes located in the cafeteria, the Kletz and the C h a p l a i n ' s o f f i c e . However, there is still need for more help and the World Hunger Committee is urging those who have not yet responded to this plea for help to do so now. The committee is confident that the students, and other supporters of the Action House and it's cause, will help to make this project a success. The time to act is now.

So This is College! by Mary Taylor High school was never like this. We never had to analyze medieval music or read and retain 70 pages of 17th century history. But then we didn't have Dykstra runs or play amoeba either (aren't you a soybean burger?). It has been a mere four weeks since that rainy Saturday morning when we moved in, met our roommates, and counted the days until fall break. In just a month we have acquired a certain level of dignity. According to upperclassmen we might as well be wearing signs around our necks that say ''Freshmen," but among ourselves we like to think that this status isn't all that obvious. Despite the fact that each freshman sports a spanking new Hope College sweatshirt, I cannot u n d e r s t a n d h o w t h e sophomores picked us out so well that Thursday evening a few weeks ago (perhaps it was because 200 freshmen were wildly fleeing shaving cream and buckets of water).

In all my novice naivete, l believe that freshmen possess a certain amount of innocence which upperclassmen have long outgrown. Who else would patiently form a line at the entree counter? Or try to take three sandwiches out of Phelps "to eat later?" Who else but a freshman would sit at a frat table and leave his ID on the tray? Only freshmen would think of bringing a fan to "Witness" and having a "pool party" (becoming an indoor hot tub party in the evening) on Dykstra Beach. And when we set off the alarm in the library, go to Health Dynamics five days a week, buy the wrong psychology book, and fall off the seat in the fat tank, it is simply because this exciting new sense of learning overwhelms us. Socially,.college is also a new adventure. We aren't used to being chased home by groups of intoxicated persons. Sitting in the cluster waiting for someone's phone to ring is amusement enough. And, of course, our daily

scope session always takes place between 5:15 and 6:00 p.m. at Phelps. We may be a bit green in some areas, but please take it e a s y we don't quite know the ropes yet (but will by September 27th!). Our enthusiasm is apparent. We support our school 100 percent. We have seen every movie and attended each dance. We give our all in varsity sports, intramurals, and pull practice. We faithfully participate in FCS, FCA, and IVCF. We bring offering to church on Sunday. We are learning what it is like to really study. Already we have a reputation for being loud (could it be because we have had so much ex perience giving standing ovations?). We are excited and energetic; a vital part of Hope. And as for the guy who ran into a tree and needed stitches, give him a break. We don't know where the trees are yet.

Musical Scholarship Announced The dream to "strut your stuff" in front of a national television audience or a crowd of 50,000 enthusiastic jazz devotees is not as impossible as it first appears. In fact, it's as easy as whistlin'Dixle. The sixth annual Southern Comfort Collegiate Dixieland Jazz Competition- a national talent hunt to discover America's best hew collegiate Dixie troupe-offers what most college musicians consider a dream come true. Past Southern Comfort Champions, two of whom had never played a Dixie tune prior to the competition, have had the opportunity to perform with the likes of actors-musicians Hal Linden ("Barney Miller"), Conrad Janis (Mindy's father from "Mork and Mindy") and Tommy Newsom, assistant musical

d i r e c t o r of " T h e T o n i g h t Show."Most of the musicians also received tremendous media exposure on such national TV s h o w s as " G o o d M o r n i n g America," the "Today Show" and the "Merv Griffin Show." In addition to a national concert-media tour, the winning college group receives $1,000 individual scholarships and a $1,000 grant to their school's music department from contest sponsor Southern Comfort, distilled spirit whose heritage parallels that of Dixieland jazz. The National Association of Jazz Educators (NAJE) co-sponsors the annual competition. Any college musician can assemble a Jazz ensemble and compete, Based on audition cassettes which must be less than 20 minutes and include rendition of the Dixieland standard

Mr. Bad Guy There s e e m s to be a profusion of middle aged men in the music business latelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Robert Plant. Fortunately for those of us subjected to their songs and videos by the media, they are, for the most )art, still good. Freddie Mercury s one of m e m . Queen may have ost some of their popularity here in America over their last album, but there is no denying that they can still spin a good song. As a solo artist, however, Freddie Mercury doesn't do very well. Mr. Bad Guy reminds me jof something. Actually, every song on the album reminds me of s o m e t h i n g that I ' v e heard before. The recording is done extremely well, but it just doesn't cut any new ground, musically or otherwise: this album comes across as a true cliche. No one can argue that for a pop singer, Freddie Mercury sings exceptionally well. However, what you sing Is as important as how you sing it; so hopefully by the next album, whether Queen or solo, Freddie Mercury will have found more interesting material. f' Rianna VandeVusse

Our college learning includes more than m e r e textbook knowledge. It shapes our values, morals and lives in general. And given that this is a democratic country, there are a variety of choices. I recognize the economics of publication—ads are necessary; I also recognize that the economics of running a school, especially a private one, include not getting a party reputation. But where does student choice c o m e in? In the future, I would hope that the college screens it's advertisement more carefully—or at least gives the "other side" equal space—in an equal forum.

mate enters and the phone is strategically positioned so that whenever you're on it any entrance or exit becomes reminiscent of Health Dynamics flexibility testing. Why is the phone t h e r e a n y w a y ? Is t h e c o l l e g e discouraging phone use, or what? But, how kind of them to offer to move it (for a ten dollar fee). How nice. I think we all understand why we mustn't move our own phones: we may damage them in some way (not that they could even pass the Samsonite test in the first place). Since everyone wants to move his-her phone, maybe the school is pooling this money for a new phone system or is planning on cancelling the "Campaign for Hope," who knows? Here's a simple suggestion for this whole thing. Why not collect a ten dollar deposit for the moving process instead of a flat charge? This way, if any damage is incurred, the deposit may be kept and no one loses. The school could maintain the phones and the students may actually talk on them without being shorted $10.00.

Now you're dialing (and-or dying depending on your situation) to get an outside line. Busy, busy, busy, BUSY. Aaaargh! Why doesn't the school have more outside lines and-or more operators during heavy calling times? What if there were some sort of emergency? How about using the phone moving money in this area? Let's at least put it to some good use. So you go to the nearest public phone only to find it being slobbered upon by some hopeless romantic who will, undoubtedly, occupy it until sometime late tomorrow. By now it's about 11:45 and you've finally got through. Mom isn't too pleased because she has plunked down after her own hard day, but she manages to cheer up a bit, and you, too. "Bye, Mom, thanks for listening." "My pleasure, just try not to call so often." No problem.

Anyone interested in getespecially those who have been ting involved in a Bible Study involved with Inter-Varsity. But should contact Debbie Van Domfor those who do not know about melen. Every day from Monday Inter-Varsity, I shall explain through Friday there is a short what it is. prayer meeting held at 6:15 p.m. in the Western room, which is adInter-Varsity Christian Fellowship is an organization in the United States and in several other countries in the world that is dedicated to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and his work in the world. It is a p a r a c h u r c h organization, which means that it is not associated with any particular denomination, but it is not a non-denominational church either because it is not a church. College age people from many different denominational backgrounds are involved in Inter-Varsity. The term "Varsity" implies high school or college campuses (as well as sports), a n c h f h f ^ n a m e "Inter-Varsity" means that the group is intercollegiate and has chapters on many college campuses.

The Inter-Varsity chapter on Hope's campus is all ready to go this year. At the beginning of this past s u m m e r a few of the leaders of la^t year's Inter-Varsity group got together and made some plans for this semester's group. A lot of their plans were to continue certain functions of the group the way they were last semester. However, there were a few changes that were made.

The meeting place of the group has not been changed. The group continues to meet in the Pit in the Kletz. Everyone s e e m s to like

C a s s i d the^bSksto^12This^pTave? ^ y , s l i t t l e sister has buckin meeting is going to be one of the g b r o n c o , ( p h o t o by D a v e D a v i s ) • -^ %qst important parts, if not the m o s t ' important part of this chapter's activities on campus.

One thing that will be different from last year will be the amount of special activities that will be held. Last year there was hardly anything the chapter did as a group except the scheduled activities of the large and small groups and prayer meetings. This year the group will try to have more outside activities. To start off these activities, there was a steak fry down on the beach on August 31. Another change is that the group might go to the Degage Coffee house in Grand Rapids. This is a place where some of the "street people" hang out. The coffee house provides a comfortable. Christian atmosphere for these people to gather in. Another change this year will be a newsletter that will be put out weekly by members of the group.

So if you are looking for some Christian fellowship and fun, or if you are interested in Christianity, just come to a meeting or just contact Mike Dick in Voorhees 309 and see what it's all about.

\ \ | Upstage Left Theatre Faculty in the Orient George RcTph Explores Japan Envision yourself facing a vending machine. Your throat parched; you'd sell your mother for a Coke. You lose: your choices include coffee, tea, fruit juice, soda, whiskey, beer, and...saki?! Being the adventurous soul that you are, you drop a yen into the machine and go for the saki. Had you enrolled for the Contemporary Issues in Japan May Term, that may have been a story you related to your friends upon returning. Last May, Theatre Department acuity member George Halph explored Japan with seven Hope students. The "anything-goes" vending machines were only the beginning of their adventures. The group's home base was Meiji Gakuin University in Tokyo; they made side trips to Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Osaka to name a few. What did the group discover about contemporary Japan? Did the students experience a great deal of culture shock? " N o , not r e a l l y c u l t u r e shock...differences, -eally," was Dr. Ralph's opinion. Differences such as: vast expanses of concrete that provide room for expansion of crowded cities; the sea is reclaimed and giant landfills are constructed. Differences such as: school children dressed in black and white uniforms, who verbally accost Americans to try out their broken English, ^nd differences such as: a cab driver, who was so kind as to park his cab and walk a group of foreigners down a city block to help them fine' their destination—when even he didn't know the directions. I received some surprising answers when 1 asked Dr. Ralph about the 'anguage barrier and how the group overcame it. The Japanese love English! Nonsensical expressions appear e v e r y w h e r e : one vending machine can (it probably contained saki at one time) had the phrase "party line" printed 3n it for no apparent "eason. He also said a great number of signs in downtown Tokyo are printed in Japanese and English. And as

the youngest are anxious to try English, others are genuinely apologetic if their English is not sufficient to convey street directions to lost foreigners. Dr. Ralph was impressed with the warmth and friendliness of the Japanese people as individuals. Yet, at the same time, he was constantly aware of the fact that, to them, he would always be a "gaijin" a foreigner; someone who could never truly fit into their homogenous society. "There is a typicality to the Japanese that we don't have, " he said. He continued by comm e n t i n g on how " g r o u p o r i e n t e d " that s o c i e t y is, 3specially be comparison with the individuality of Americans. By the interview's end, I was bold enough to ask him if our stereotype of the Japanese as photographers was an accurate one. His response: "I had my picture taken by strangers..." The second half of Dr. Ralph's journey consisted of studies of theatrical forms, he received a grant ("to internationalize the c u r r i c u l u m " ) from E x x o n , through Neal Sobania, Director of International Education. He was joined by his son, Steve, a freshman at Hope, and together they studied the theatre of Japan. Ancient and contemporary forms of theatre coexist in Japan. Much of the ancient drama has survived; in its original form and is still practiced, while a production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman may be staged just around the corner, ^nd in Japan, a day at the theatre may literally be just that: one may attend an 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. matinee, break for dinner in the theate lobby, and "eturn for the 4:30-9:30 soiree. A few types of theatre that Dr. Ralph and his son attended include Bunraku, a theatre of puppeteering; Aragato, an exaggerated style of performance that highlights the relationship between an actor and his au. dience; and Noh, a form once patronized by the Samuri class. Noh has been in practice for several hundred years, and it was Noh that gave rise to one of the most well-known ancient forms of theatre called Kabuki. Kabuki performances frequently employ dance-like move-

to use his knowledge as a diver and his skills as a sculptor. Smith's job was to design and build lightweight structures resembling coral, to be suspended in the theatre. The Foyer Theatre is about twice the size of the DeWitt Center Main Theatre. To accomplish that grand task in five weeks. Smith rented a factory, acquired the necessary tools and equipment, and hired 35 people. The labor force was composed of students from an art institution and unskilled workers (from countries boardering China) with temporary work permits. The group worked 15 hours a day, seven days a week—with no more instruction than manual demonstrations. Smith did have an interpreter, however; his employees were from no less than five countries, making translation a difficult and time consuming task at best.

Before departing, he was treated to a progressive dinner of Malaysian, Indian, and Chinese cuisines, and handmade tokens of thanks were presented to him. While interviewing Richard Smith, I came to the conclusion that it was the generosity of those oppressed people that most strongly impressed him. It is the people of the Orient that he will remember when he recalls his excursion to Singapore, and his renewed appreciation for the too frequently cliched wealth and freedom of the U.S.

Richard Smith Designs in Singapore "It's a cultural fast food market." Ask T h e a t r e D e p a r t m e n t Chairperson Richard Smith to describe Singapore and that's what he'll tell you. It's a cosmopolitan metropolis: a melting pot of orientar cultures tainted with remnants of British and F r e n c h influence. It's located in a country, where governmental control touches the daily lives of the primarily lower class population. Smith recently returned from a five week trip to Singapore, where he designed for and began c o n s t r u c t i o n in the F o y e r Theatre, a large entertainment center being renovated with the theme "Lost Atlantis." The owner of the theatre, Roger Eu, is also employing some Disney master-minds on his 2.2 milliondollar project, which he hopes to complete during December. The trip gave Smith a chance

rnent and musical accompaniment. Classic story lines range from histories about warriors, to tragic domestic love stories. Kabuki productions are performed solely by men born into or adopted by a Kabuki theatre family. Training for Kabuki troupe members begins at a y o u n g a g e and : o n t i n u e s throughout life, upon attaining p r o f i c i e n c y , e a c h actor is "christened" with a theatrical name. Dr. Ralph and Steve attended part )f the naming ceremony of Donjurdos XII, a leading Kabuki actor. These naming ceremonies extend over several months and often convey family names that have descended through hundreds of years. While in Japan, Dr. Ralph acquired new material for Van Zoeren Library, such as books that are not available in the U.S. He also acquired knowledge in the field of Asian theatre, which may be passed on to students through lectures in directing, playwriting, and theatre history classes. It is that knowledge that may place a liason between students' awareness of Eastern and Western spheres of culture and drama.

Smith experienced many interesting cultural jags. While being screened in customs, he was told to remove the earring he usually wears. He said the film Rambo is a hot conversation piece,* because the leading woman is from Singapore. Indian employees taught him how to eat with his hands, or as he put it, "mix and shovel." He had to persuade his employees to call him by his first name, rather than calling him "chief" or "boss" as they so often did.

September 18. 1985 Last week, I gave the reasons for Foaming at the Mouth's existance. Well, since I wrote that, a little over ten days ago, and since its publication, enough people have called me aside to talk about the column that I began to wonder. Over the summer, while not getting any less sarcastic, I have noticed that my viewpoints have changed somewhat. I remain, as Professor Tom Kennedy h a s informed m e (perhaps informed isn't quite right; inferred or hinted at might be better), a variety of the dreaded knee-jerk liberal. While I don't agree with the knee-jerk designation, I am sufficiently liberal to agree with his description. Along with this realization (admittance, if you will), I have found that, given the option of now being able to cook for myself, I don't frequent Phelps as much as I used to. So, things that bug others don't trickle down to me quite as quickly, and this leaves me wanting for things to Foam about. A l l of t h i s d o e s l e a d somewhere, believe me. All of these factors, plus a few others that are nobody's business by mine, have added up to merit a change. Hense, Foaming is no longer Foaming, and is now called Straight Ahead. Why? Easy enough to answer: I wanted to change it, because I feel that there are more important things to holler about that don't quite fit in under a title like Foaming at the Mouth. People seemed to want Foaming, bit I did* not, so I have changed it, although I will foam from time to time. And this is the crux of this week's discussion.

Straight Ahead tic*- XcAzrzce.

Enjoying the ol' Once Around When yer gonna do something, like, say, going into a career or some such other thing which might have a bearing on your life, why not do something that you enjoy instead of what others think you should do? This is not to say you shouldn't listen to good advice, but what I'm getting at is a lot of people recently have told me that they aren't happy with their major, or whatever, but they keep on going with it. Why? Because it's what I should be doing, they reply. Bat crap, I respond. What you should be doing is what you enjoy doing, because by the very fact that you enjoy doing it, you will do it better than something which you feel forced to do. In the long, it will save you problems in your job, your marriage (if that's what yer after), your guts (contentment generally does not breed ulcers and other nasty internal disorders scientifically proven to m e s s up your life), and your overall personalitv. Some of you, eternal doubters all, will demand proof. Okay, I'll give you a couple examples. To begin, myself, because no one can accuse me of making this one up (they can, but they won't get too far). I came to Hope with the intent of getting a degree in Biology, going on to grad school.

and ending up a Ph.D. in Marine Biology. Pretty impressive, most said. Mom was supportive; as long as I am happy, I have reason to believe, so is she. It took maybe two years for me to decide that this just wasn't for me. I don't like being cooped up in labs, for one thing. Being in the sciences naturally requires a good deal of lab time, and I like being able to get up and roam around on the spur of the moment, and that you just cannot do while watching a beaker bubble over a a low flame for five hours on e n d . P e e r i n g t h r o u g h microscopes isn't much better; it hurts my e y e s , g i v e s m e headaches, and generally makes me a miserable person. Those that remember m e from first semester last year will remember a very cantankerous Kirk who had little tolerance for foolishness and idiocy (as he saw normal fun-loving activities to be), and as such, was not very well liked among those who lived in the same hall as he. Second semester, after thoroughly enjoying an independent study in creative writing, I was of a much more tolerable personality. I got along with people. I was enjoying myself, all for the simple reason that I had realized that I enjoy writing more than I do biologying. I added a major,-

more because I was so close to a B.A. in Bio that it seemed a waste to not finish it (I am, at the moment, considering whether or not to do even that; Bio is more fun as a hobby, not a vocation). There's nothing more enjoyable for me than to sit down and watch words just appear out of nowhere, and, better yet, to have people enjoy them. That makes me happy, and that is what I Intend to do with my life. Write. For the other example, I have a friend, who, if he reads this, will recognize himself instantly. For the rest of you, rest assured that he is real, and possibly more than one person. Friend is a chem major. He's pretty good at it, does well in his classes, and doesn't seem to mind overmuch being cooped up inside all day long. I say overmuch because Friend loves being outside. He relaxes and is wholly content poking about in fields, swamps, streams, whatever comes to hand. I've noticed some form of discontent in him for quite a while now, and cannot for the life of me understand why he doesn't do something that he enjoys rather than what he feels he ought to do. For those of you that think I'm being unfair putting him on display like this, waittaminnit.

He's heard this before, and you don't know who he is, other than a Friend that I'm concerned about. Beyond the fact that he isn't really happy doing chemistry and is happy pottering about in the out of doors or with his plants or whatever, I don't know what to say. What does it sound like to you, gentle reader? Think he might be happier pottering or chemming? While you think about that, think about something else. Are you happy with what you're doing? Ever wonder why you're studying History when you have so much more fun painting? Has the thought ever crossed your mind that you might have fun painting for a living? Sure, you might not make it. I might not make it as a writer, but I think that, for myself at least, I'll be happier as a poor writer than as a rich something else. This may just hold true for some others out there. It may hold true for you. I can't tell you to go out and follow your own personal muse, funyit, or whatever it is that you listen to, only that you think about what I've said. Talk it over with a good friend, or maybe your advisor. If he or she is worth anything at all, they'll try to help you to find the area that you're the happiest in, be it religion, political science, or physics. That's the basic point of this week's column. It's your life, not anyone elses. Why live it the way someone else wants you to instead of the way in which it pleases you? We only, as they say, go around once. Why not make the trip as enjoyable as is humanly possible?

Overall, a very good album by an excellent band. Other records by The Smiths I'd recommend

This is one of the very few groups that I listen to voluntarily that may ever get radio play.More power to it, I say. They deserve it (Although "take on Me" s e e m s to have been getting altogether too much radio play lately). Their songs are well written, nicely performed, and smooth without going quite as far as Scritti or Duran. ^ v e n their videos are a nice surprise. I gladly put up with their Norweigian accents because they carefully say the words so we can understand them. Wouldn't it be nice if English singers articulated our language this well? I may not be a prophetess, but I'd say that a-ha, along with groups like 'til tuesday and singer Alison Moyet, are people we'll be hearing a lot more from in the future. On American radio even.

Concludes Dune

A book review by David Hugh Carmer Chapterhouse: . D u n e , the startling, revealing, cosmic conclusion to the Dune series. A climax of s u s p e n s e and thrill. Frank Herbert reaches new heights in a m a z e m e n t with his latest achievement in the realm of science-fictipn. The reading of it is an experience unlike the reading of any other book. R e m e m b e r the Dune Trilogy? It was such a s u c c e s s as a book, that they finally m a d e it into a movie. Remember, most of the people who had read the books that saw the movie were dissappointed (I know I w a s ) ? Well, the reason those people didn't like the movie so much w a s the fact that it was so trite compared to the book. The movie left out so much of the depth that Frank Herbert had put into the book. By most sci-fi fans, the Dune Trilogy is considered a classic, right up there with the Foundation Series (no longer called Foundation Trilogy). Dune was a hard book to read. Herbert g a v e you so much to sift through. It was not a short novel by a n y means. I r e m e m b e r the paperback I got of it, small print and over 800 pages long. That's about

the size of War and P e a c e in v paperback. But it was a rewarding book if you could last through it. The second two books in the series were much easier to read. Herbert didn't give all the background as he assumed you'd read Dune. They were just as good as Dune (better to those people that failed to complete the first book with its m a s s of inf o r m a t i o n on c u l t u r e s a n d customs). The trilogy finally ends on a note of permanance. The present ruler of the galaxy would live forever essentially. There w a s no stopping the sequel. It had c o m e sometime. And so God Emperor of Dune w a s written and published. It was, to some, the best Dune novel yet. However, there were those, like myself, that felt it to be an exploration into the philosophies that might develop from living so long. It was a dreamy story about the end of a life that stretched farther than humans could really imagine. Then there w a s Heretics of Dune. It told us what w e needed v to know: what happened after Leto's Death. It also saw the end

of Arrakis, a.k.a. Dune. The p l a n e t t h a t had c o n t r o l l e d everything, blown to bits by invaders from the scattering. This book is a revival of the old Dune style, equal to the original book Dune, in its depth and excitement. ' - ^ Finally, in coming full circle, there is Chapterhouse: Dune. The l a t e s t work of F r a n k Herbert, the sixth book in the Dune series. In my opinion, as good as Heretics, and close to being as good a s the first Dune. Chapterhouse is a book of revelation, the dying of an age, and the realization of eternity. A stunning conclusion that l e a v e s you with a satisfied feeling, and a sense of awe. Looking back over the history of the galaxy as told by the Dune series, it s e e m s so miraculous the effects that small actions can cause. It parallels true life in its ironies and strangeness. Unlike other series, the Dune books show something different in human nature than others can grasp. Chapterhouse: Dune makes sense of everything that goes before it. It is a must for anyone who has read any other Dune-books.

Field Hockey Looks Ahead

'89 Pull Team Looks by Stacey Williams The Pull. Just the mention of it's name brings many different feelings and attitudes to the minds of the 1989 Pull Team. Spirit, dedication, friendship, and agony seem to be the root of what the Pull is about. Basically, the pull team can be described as a family consisting of the pullers, the morale girls, and the coaches. They work together,they cry together, they help each other, and they all strive for the s a m e goal. When one of the members is down, the others are there to encourage him not to' give up, for they believe that "a chain Is only as strong as It's weakest link". * Being such a strong unity Is the key to the pull team's success, especially during their many painful hours of training. Puller Tom " B o w s e r " Bouwer describes the stress of practice as "harder than going twice a day for football." Each day at 3:30 p.m. the team assembles and runs to the practice field where three hours of work await them. The practice generally begins with several strenuous c a l l s t e n l c s . Then they're off for a long run which Includes some difficult wind sprints. After this they gear up lor some "hands on" action with the rope. They then wind down with some more callstenlcs and Jog to Phelps/ A very Important part of the pull team are the morale girls. They're the ones responsible for keeping the pullers' spirits up. Not only do they make "encouragement" posters and boost the guys' morale, but they also get right down In the dirt to relay valuable signals to the pullers. Rita DeWitt feels being a morale girl Is v e i 7 rewarding, "The enthusiasm Is great and working as a team Is even better." / . The class of 1989's team is coached by former members of the 1987 team. Pull coaches Include Scott "Skooter" Valet, Kralg "Pete" Peterson, Rodney " M l l f r l d " Brush, and Jon


"Pistol" Beyer. The morale girls are coached by Susan Krunkle, Jill Mannor, and Terri Henry. To the coaches, the pull has been a very special part of their lives. "It's the best thing I've done since I've been here," explains Skooter. Jill Mannor describes the pull as "Love and family. You make so many lasting bonds between friends because the pull Is so Intense." Knowing about all the work and sacraflce, one might question why someone would want to be In the pull. The t e a m mambers responded like this:

Dan Waldorff- I wanted to get Involved In the big thing of the year, and meet a lot of new people. Jon Weston- To get In shape and avoid the "freshman fifteen". Tom Bouwer- It's a challenging goal to work for. Pete Shearer- I'm used to playing sports and I wanted to get Involved, so the pull seemed like an excellent idea. Don Lewis- My sister was In it and she said It was the best thing she had ever done so I thought I'd give it a try. Moral girl Laurie DeWitt seemed to best describe the attitude of the 1989 pull team, "It's a lot of hard work and dedication, but it will be worth all the pain and agony when we defeat the class of '88." On Sept. 27,1985 at 4 p.m. we'll be watching to see If all their work really does pay off. Good luck '89 pull team!

A new coach, a different league format and a growing tradition are ingredients that comprise the 1985 Hope College field hockey picture, v The season got underway Friday, Sept. 13 against Eastern Michigan University at Ypsilanti, followed by a series of contests Saturday, Sept. 14 at Sauk Valley. Hope's home opener will be today, Sept. 18, against MIAA rival Calvin. Andrea Dahl Is Hope's new field hockey coach. Dahl has earned bachelor of arts and master of arts degrees from the U n i v e r s i t y of W l s c o n s l n LaCrosse as well as a certified advanced studies degree from Springfield, Mass. College. She has served seven years as an Olympic field hockey coach for goalies and played herself on a post-colleglate co-ed team, the San Diego Jaguars, which won a national championship. Although the Flying Dutch return seven letterwlnners from a 1984 team which accumulated a 10-5-4 overall record, they lost key athletes through graduation whose contributions were many. First Hope must seek a replacement for goalie Tammy Avrlt, who allowed only 14 goals while amassing 162 saves last fall. They also lost defensive

standouts Karen Smith and Connie Brown and team MVP Melanie Waite, who set a new MIAA and Hope record for career assists. Returning from the team which tied Calvin for second place in the league is first team all-MIAA selection senior Annette Van Engen. Van Engen scored five goals and added four assists, good for fourth place In the league scoring race. Also back are senior second team all-MIAA picks Jennifer Sharp and Patty Gaffney. Sharp tallied nine goals to lead the team In 1984. Returning senior Lynn Eickhoff scored eight goals last season. Three other letterwlnners who are back Include junior Kathy Chandler and sophomores Bob-

bie Whitehouse and Lisa Lydens.

The key to the season may be to find replacements for those lost to graduation and to add underclassmen depth to a strohg group of^seniors. If those criteria are met, Hope may climb back into the first place slot it held In 1982. The 1985 schedule Includes a new MIAA format. Instead of the home-and-away format of the past few seasons, league teams will play each other just once before an MIAA tournament slated for Oct. 23 and 26. A non-league schedule highlight Is the Midwest Invitational hosted by Hope on Sept. 20, featuring teams from WisconsinStevens Point, Ohio Wesleyan and Kenyon.

Golf Swings into Action Hope College launched its golf season Friday, Sept. 13 by competing in the first of seven league tournaments on the course of d e f e n d i n g MIAA c h a m p i o n Olivet College. Coach Doug Peterson is optimistic that his golf squad this fall is ready to make the jump from three consecutive third place showings in the MIAA. "How much our core of returning upperclassmen improves and how well our crop of freshmen contribute should determine whether we can challenge for the league title this fall," said Peterson, whose team trailed Olivet and Albion in 1984. Albion won the title in 1983 and slipped to second last fall whil Olivet reclaimed first place for the sixth time in seven years. . Peterson needs improvement from his upperclassmen to help

offset the loss of two-time allMIAA performer Paul DeBoer. DeBoer was the league's fourth lowest scorer in 1984 with an 18hole average of 76.9- a school record. He also wound up with the best career average score ever for a Hope golfer at 79.2. Leading the list of returning upperclassmen will be junior captain Doug Kuiper (81.4 average score in 1984) and sophomore Chris Slot (82.7). Other returning lettermen include junior Quinn Smith and sophomores Ken Vandf Veen and James Rafferty. Heading a group of freshmen which Peterson feels can contribute heavily is two-time Class C all-stater Rolfe Timmerman.

Cross Country Takes Off Hope College launched its cross country season Tuesday (Sept. 17) by hosting its annual invitational meet for men and women at the Holland Country Club. Teams scheduled to compete included Albion, Alma, Aquinas, Calvin, Hope, Jordan, Kalamazoo, Michigan Christian, Olivet, Siena Heights, Spring Arbor and St. Francis of Joliet, 111. Siena Heights is the two-time defending champoin in the men's run while Alma has won the women's race the past three years. Coach Bill Vanderbilt's men's squad has its eyes set on another outright MIAA cross country title and a trip to the Division III Nationals. A year ago, the Flying Dutchmen claimed each goal only partially after attaining both in 1983. For the fifth time in eight years, they won the annual league meet to force a tie for the MIAA title with Calvin, which had defeated the Dutchmen in dual meet competition. That marked the 12th time in Vanderbilt's 14 years as coach that the Flying Dutchmen have won the MIAA meet and at least a share of the conference title. They were also represented at the NCAA Division III nationals for the 13th consecutive year when junior Lindsey Dood qualified even though the team fell short. Dood, the MIAA's comost valuable runner, finished 47th of 182 runners. The 1985 captain Dood would like to again emerge from the dual meet season unbeaten and then claim an outright individual league crown. Last fall, he tied for the top spot with Adrian's Steve Hubbard. Also r e t u r n i n g will be sophomore all-MIAA selection Randy Johnson. Other frequent members of the top seven returning i n c l u d e j u n i o r s K e v i n Shoemaker, Andy Kromminga, John Gardner, Craig Kingma, John McElwee and sophomore

Kevin Cole. "We'll need for some of the juniors to improve if we waant to make it to nationals since only two teams from our region qualify," said Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt added that possibly one or more runners from the group of incoming freshmen, which include Mike Northuis and Dave Kingma, might make a significant contribution. "I'm not sure Calvin's going to be the primary force they've been the last few years," said Vanderbilt, whose team will open their league dual season l;osting Calvin on Oct. 9 "But 1 know Kalamazoo will be improved and Alma and Albion should be stronger." If the Hope women can keep the injuries away or come up witl^ enough depth to counter them, the Flying Dutch could challenge Alma for first place in the MIAA. Alma has won all four league crowns since women's cross country became an MIAA sport while Hope has moved up the ladder from fourth in 1981 to a tie for second a year ago. Injuries have depleted the ranks the past couple seasons, last year's major casualty being two-time all-MIAA standout Deb Heydenburg. A healthy co-captain Heydenburg, teamed with all-league selection Sue DeSanctis would help the Flying Dutch. DeSanctis, a senior co-captain, placed third in last year's MIAA meet. "If we can get enough quality at the top, we can expect to challenge for the league title," said Vanderbilt. He hopes that quality at the top includes sophomore Dana Barsness. Likewise Vanderbilt would like to see contributions from incoming freshmen such as Taura Jecman and Missy Fleming. Hope will host the MIAA championship meet for men and women on Saturday, Nov. 9.

Swimmers Named All American Three members of the 1985 MIAA championship Hope College women's swimming team have been designated Academic All A m e r i c a n s by t h e C o l l e g e Coaches Swimming Association. Honored for academic achievement were Kaarli Bergman, a sophomore, Connie Kramer, a senior and Jennifer Straley, a sophomore. In order to receive Academic

All-America recognition, a student must have participated in the NCAA or NAIA national championships and maintained a m i n i m u m 3.5 g r a d e point average on a four point scale.

The Lady Dutch dropped their home and season opener to nonleague Grand Valley, 15-4, 15-9, 15-13. After a slow first g a m e start, the Dutch rallied behind the offensive strength of sophmore DeeAnn Knoll and freshman Sarah Smith. Knoll and Smith finished the match scoring on 44 and 40 percent of their shots respectively. Knoll added 5 kills.

De Pauw Clobbers Hope by Lisa Jurrls Hope lost, 20-8 to DePauw.but still has a good team, as was shown the week before when Wartburg was beaten 35-0. As can be imagined, the Dutch could do no wrong on the 4th and Wartburg could do no right as their quarterback continually threw too soon or got sacked (8 sacks in all) while our own offense kept the ball moving toward the goal with 5 touchdowns and 5 extra points for 35 points total.

game against DePauw and the score showed it. The Dutchmen were doing well until the 4th quarter when things s e e m e d to fall apart. Up until then the score was 10-8 with Bill Vanderbilt making the touchdown for 6 points and Chris Mendels running the ball in for another two points. After that, the offense wasn't able to move the ball by either running or passing and by the fourth quarter, the defense was so tired from no rest that they were no longer able to hold the tough DePauw team back.

So far the season has turned out as was predicted by Coach Smith, who said he'd be delighted to win half of the first four games. The Dutchmen have, a good chance of fulfilling that hope this Saturday when they play Carthage at home; Carthage being comparable to a good high school team in talent. The Sept. 28 game against Wabash will be much tougher but if the offense does as well as the first game, they have a good chance of bringing home another victory.

Second year head coach Donna Sass was very happy with her team's play. She applauded the defensive efforts of Knoll and junior Jill Vredevelt. Knoll tallied 6 assisted blocks and 1 solo with Vredevelt adding 4 assists and 1 solo. ^ Next Up: The Dutch travel to Sienna Heights for a 10 team double-elimination tournament and face the Knights from Calvin.
