But along the way, a few extra things were done-reupholstering the booths and work in the service area. "If we're going to do something," said Anderson, "we should do it and not come out with something cheap and unfinished " Do the students think it has been done right? "So far, I h a v e n ' t h e a r d a lot f r o m students. But the reaction has

" M o d e l s of M u l t i c u l t u r a l Transformation and Challanges for the Future,' was the topic of the Presidential Panel Discussion of the Great l^ikes College Association (GLAC) Conference on Multicultural life The panel was made up of Richard Wood, President of Earlham College; Carol Guardo. President of the GLCA. Robert Bottoms. President of De Pauw University; and John Jacobson. P r e s i d e n t of Hope College, moderated the discussion Bottoms began the discussion by saying he would like to share some of the experiences in multicultural life at De Pauw "We had strong belief that no change could take place unless we dramatically increased the number of minority students." he said. But to increase the number of minority students had to be done about financial aid. "Some of the traditional ways of looking at financial aid don't always work in these situations." Bottoms explained. Bottoms said part of the problem comes from a "lack of will" on campuses to change, on the

part of admimsrtation, faculty, and students Bottoms also said that administration need to talk with white students about why there is a need for "cultural pluralism' on campuses He said it was very important to keep the lines of c o m m u n i c a t i o n open for students at all times "We do know some of the things we need to do and it's a question of will." he finished Wood also commented,"! don't think t h e r e ' s a n y t h i n g new here... we've been held up by a lack of will " Wood addressed the financial aid situation saying different packages should be created for diffierent situations, " f a i r is treating like situations alike.

"In colleges like E a r lh a m . the last bastion of ethnocentrism will be the definition of a good course " Wood also stressed the impor t a n c e of m u l t i c u l t u r a l curriculum "We have tended unc o n s c i o u s l y to r e g a r d our

More News Budget cuts, housing costs contribute to homelessness by P a m Lundberg Feature editor The homeless population in the a r a n d Rapids-Holland a r e a is increasing and most experts point to cuts in the national housing budget a s the reason. According to Deb Sturtevant, Hope College sociology professor, the main problem is that 4 'money is shrinking e v e r m o r e . " The homeless population consists of veterans, the mentally ill. families and single parents. Also, a new concern is for firsttime home buyers who cannot afford a decent house. 4 4 First-time buyers can't afford it, so they rent ... Housing is not moving on" said Holly Sturgiss of the

Grand Rapids Housing Commission. One typical reason is that upper-income families keep their housing and the rent in turn goes up. Lower-income f a m i l i e s a r e displaced because of the increasing rent, and, eventually, the family cannot afford any housing and is forced into the street. 44 Low-income families a r e now off the ladder. They can't even get a rental unit at a reasonable price," said Sturgiss. Even when incomes a r e increased a problem remains. When people have bought their first home, they cannot move to their second home because housing costs rise too sharply. According to Sturgiss and the Grand

Despite a noticable increase in the student population of Hope College in the last ten years, the College has m a i n t a i n e d a student-faculty ratio of 15-to-l. Since the 1980-81 school year the student population has increased from 2,355 to 2,770. Provost Jacob Nyenhuis said.

Hope's international center to be named for Fried (HOPE) - In a fitting tribute, the i n t e r n a t i o n a l e d u c a t i o n center at Hope College will be named in honor of Dr. Paul G. Fried, professor emeritus of history, during ceremonies on Saturday, Sept. 22. The building will be designated the " P a u l G. Fried International Center" in a program beginning at 10:30 a.m. A reception will followandthe public is invited. In case of rain, the p r o g r a m will be held in Wichers Auditorium of Nykerk Hall of Music. Fried, a m e m b e r of the Hope faculty f r o m 1953-Âť4, is recognized as the chief architect of the college's international education program. He served a s director of international education from 1964-81. " F r o m its very beginnings Hope College h a s been international, and its g r a d u a t e s - b o t h international and A m e r i c a n - h a v e

influenced events and people in countries throughout the world," said Dr.Neal Sovania, director of international education and associate professor of history at Hope. 44But from the 1950 s up to the present it is Paul Fried who has personified and kept before us a spirit of internationalism." "Therefore it is indeed appropriate that the building on c a m p u s from which the college's international activities a r e coordinated be named the P a u l G. Fried International Center," Sobania said. l4 And further, as a building so centrally located on the c a m p u s , it will daily speak loudly and clearly to all who pass it or enter it of Hope's global commitments." "In this way, P a u l ' s influence a s teacher and committed international educator, and his vision of what a true liberal artscollege ought to be. will continue to be

felt by those who have not been so fortunate as the alumni, students and friends who have worked with or been taught by him these many y e a r s , " Sobania said. Fried s chief legacy to Hope is the Vienna S u m m e r School, which he established in 1957. One of the oldest and most highly regarded s u m m e r study-abroad programs, the Vienna S u m m e r School centers on a six-week pro gram in one place, enabling students to interact extensively with the city's native population. Fried also helped establish in 1965 the exchange program between Hope and Meiji Gakuin University in Tokyo. He was a leader in the formation of the Great Lakes Colleges Association's international K a r n early i960 s, for two decades was a m e m b e r of

the committee which monitored the GLCA's overseas centers, and held liaison positions with t h e I n s t i t u t e for E u r o p e a n Studies. He was recognized with the Gold Medal of Merit a w a r d from the F e d e r a l G o v e r n m e n t in Austria, bestowed in recognition of his services in fostering international understanding. When he retired, his post as director of international education, the Vienna S c h o l a r s h i p F u n d established in his honor to help bring Austrian student to Hope was renamed the Paul G. Fried Fund. To pay f u r t h e r tribute to Fried the college's first speaker in the Hope College Presidential lecture Series, Dr, E v a Nowotny has been scheduled to visit campus in connection with t h e dedication. Nowotny will give the address '•Freedom.

Local News SAC and Milestone move offices The Student Activities Committee (SAC) will be moving down the hall of the DeWitt Center into the Milestone offices. The college yearbook has moved to an office in the basement of DeWitt currently used by the Inter-Fraternity Council and the IFC will move into SAC c u r r e n t office. In explaining the move, SAC chairperson Michelle Imhoff ( 92) said, **We're just a f r a i d of the possibility of something being stolen. The walls a r e not p e r m a n e n t , so people can j u m p them and take items of value." Anne Bakker-Gras, Director of Student Activities, approached Milestone editor Ben Oppipari ('91) this s u m m e r about making the move and he didn't mind. "The inconvenience caused to us is minor compared to the inconvenience caused to SAC right now," he said.

Male wanders into Dykstra room The Department of Hope College Public Safety recently received a report of a male Hope student entering a room of a sleeping female Hope student. He evidently proceded to sit beside the bed and stare at the woman until he was discovered by the woman's r o o m m a t e who returned to the room from elsewhere. Details and action on the part of the administration has been limited by the woman's apparent unwillingness to discuss the incident.

Mayer said the rejection of any compromise was " a n unacceptable way to handle" differences. "It is a form of censorship when Muste was about f r e e d o m , " he said.

"No place is p e r f e c t , " Cronkite said. "We ail fall short, but we needn't be satisfied with falling short " He thought the Building and Grounds Committee had overstepped its bounds, but that " i t ' s still possible for all of us to come out of this with face.... We need to work and talk together." Mayer, too. wondered about the level of control being exerted by the Board of Trustees. He said, "Last spring Jacobson said the Board w a s n ' t about micromanagement."

Middle East I Students

Stafford Loans face difficult times

•Collegiate News Draft registration skyrockets

by Amy Hudson (CPS) - The apparently imminent collapse of one of the most important players in the system that gets college loan money to students probably won't affect students' ability to get loans this year, various observers say. "There's no need for real conc e r n " said Dan Goyette, financial aid director at Marquette University in Wisconsin " W e ' r e all feeling secure about the short term." Goyette, however, added the financial crisis at the Higher Education Assistance Foundation (HEAF), which is the nation's largest guarantor of student loans, has him worried about the "long-term solvency of the S ta f f or d Loa n P r ogr a m . " One campus aid official says HEAF's troubles already have caused some banks, which ultimately lend college money to students under the gauranteed student loan program, to shy away from making new loans. "We have had some banks that have expressed concern and chosen not to do loans a n y m o r e , " said Mary Wildeman, a loan clerk at Fort Hays State University in Kansas. "It is a problem for us, but at this point, we're just waiting." The vast majority of the 4 million students who will take out Stafford Loans to help pay for college this school year already a r e a s s u r e d of getting their money, aid officials note. Any problems that might arise would not affect students, at least until next year. The crisis began in July, when

HEAF executives told the U.S. Department of Education, which oversees most federal college programs, that HEAF did not have enough cash to reimburse banks when students fail to repay loans. Campus officials feared that if banks lost confidence they would be reimbursed for defaulted loans, they would simply stop making student loans Student loan administrators, however, swear the loan program is in no danger. " N o b o d y ' s g o i n g to l o s e money." said Dallas Martin, head of the National Association of Financial Aid Administrators, headquartered in Washington, D C. "We feel very comfortable t h a t t h e p r o g r a m will go through." "We're cautiously optimistic that b a n k s w o n ' t lose any money." added Fritz Elmendorf of t h e C o n s u m e r B a n k i n g Association (CBA), a frequent critic of the Education Department's management of the student loan program. For now, federal officials a r e hoping a $200 million loan from the government-sponsored Student Loan Marketing Association to HEAF will keep the agency, the largest of 55 guarantee agencies in the country, afloat. The loan should carry HEAF into October, said Education Department spokeswoman Etta Fielek "We're pleased with this arrangement because it provides a s t a b l e period d u r i n g which negotiations can continue," Fielek said. Yet no one is sure what will

happen when the $200 million runs out. HEAF, a private, non-profit agency based in Overland P a r k , Kan., has guaranteed $8 8 billion in student loans, or more than 17 percent of the $51 billion student loans outstanding nationally. Exact figures on just how much HEAF owes banks for loans that s t u d e n t s h a v e n ' t repaid aren't available.

Education Undersecretary Ted Sanders did tell the Senate Banking Committee on July 27 that bailing out HEAF would cost about $100 million. If the department ultimately has to give HEAF the cash to reimbuse banks, students can expect a "drastic cutback on student loans," warned Leo Hatten, outgoing financial aid director at Eastern New Mexico University. "I think this is probably, on a small scale, another S&L type ripoff," Hatten added, referring to the $500 billion federal bailout savings and loan institutions that lost money in part by lending money to people who did not repay them. HEAF admitted its problems mostly stemmed from making " b a d " loans to students at forprofit trade schools. The Education Department a l s o is c o n s i d e r i n g l e t t i n g another guarantee agency take over HEAF Until then. "There's nothing else we can do at this point except wait and see," said Fort Hays State's Wildeman.

(CPS) - Voluntary registration for the military draft has skyrocketed since the Aug. 2 I raqi invasion of Kuwait, the Selective Service System reports. The number of men signing up has increased 67 percent over the amount who registered before the invasion of Kuwait, saidSelective Service spokeswoman Barbie Richardson. There a r e no current proposals to reinstate the draft, which would lappen only if Congress were to order it. "Historically," Richardson said, "there have been hikes before conflicts" such as the recent U.S. invasion of P a n a m a . There could be any number of reasons for the dramatic increase, Richadson said, such as students finishing up tasks before heading off to school. Federal law, although haphazardly enforced, requires young men o register within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Additionally, students have to certify they've registered before they can receive any federal college aid.

Ohio National Guard wrong to guarantee six years of tuition (CPS) - The Ohio National Guard wrongly promised recruits that it would pay all of their college tuition expenses throughout the six years of their Guard service, the Ohio Supreme Court has ruled. In 1985 the Guard promised to pay 100 percent of student Thomas Peter Sorrentino's tuition costs through six years of Guard service, even though the Guard's budget at the time covered only two years. The court said the Guard did not have the authority to commit itself to pay recruits' benefits beyond the term of its budgets. When it got its new budget, the Guard said it would pay only 60 percent of its recruits' tuition, prompting Sorrentino to sue. The court said that, pending a lower court decision, people who joined the Guard thinking they would get 100 percent of their tuition paid may not have to finish their six-year terms.

Career changes expected (CPS) - More than four out of five collegians expect to completely change careers some time during their lives, with about half of them thinking about starting their own businesses, according to a nationwide survey by Right Associates, Ind. Students also expect to g r a d u a t e into lower management positions, where they hope to earn $20,000 to $30,000 a year, the company said.


93rd Pull set for this Friday

by Steve Moore

(HOPE) - The Hope College Pull tug-of-war, a 99-year tradition, will to the banks of the Black River (near U.S. 31 and M-21) on Friday, a t 4 p.m. The Pull, first held in 1896, is a n annual fall highlight a t Hope College-a competition between the incoming and sophomore Entrenched in shallow pits on opposite sides of the river. ieams fielded by the two class' a t t e m p t to gain the most rope through their strength and stamina. E a c h team consists of 18 m o i and 18 women, with the m e n on the rope and the women acting a s guides and morale boosters. The incoming class is coached by the junior class while the sophomores a r e instructed by the senoirs. In 1977, the Pull set a record for length and uniqueness. The Pullers tugged for three hours, 51 minutes before the judges called a tie due to darkness. In contrast, the shortest Pull lasted two and one-half minutes in 1966. New rules were implemented in 1978, following the 1977 marathon, limiting the event's duration. The rules now allow the judges to determine the winning class by measuring the amount of rope pulled f r o m the other t e a m if one team has not claimed all of the rope. In 1989, a f t e r a ruling three-hour struggle, the sophomores were declared the winners by a margin of 10 feet. Ironically, the twoyear-old rope had stretched a n d both classes and g a i n e d - t h e incoming class simply did not gain a s much. Through the years, the sophomore class has held an edge in the win-low column. Since 1934, they have taken 34 contests to the incoming class' 18. There have been two d r a w s and three cancella . *

Trustees overuse power

Dear Editors; Though both sides of the issue involving whether or not to place a sculpture dedicated to A.J. Muste in the VanWylen Library (see story, p 1) agree it's not the most important controversey around, some of its aspects point up a fundamental concern on this c a m p u s That concern is the Board of Trustees' use of their power. Certainly, the installation of a sculpture is not as important to the Hope community as student growth, a multi-cultural emphasis, student security, or a host of other educational and social issues. But all of these issues can be impacted by decisions m a d e by the Board of Trustees. According to President John Jacobson, and the bylaws of the college. the Board of Trustees had the ability to reject the Muste sculpture and even its temporary placement in the library. But as stated by Professor Donald Conkrite, a supporter of the sculpture, " I t ' s not always right to use authoritative power, though you have it." And that's what Muste thought. A wholehearted pacifist, Muste rubbed at the grain of Hope College when he was here. But the scope of Muste's accomplishments, whether or not you a g r e e with them, reflect back upon Hope's influence on him. The sculpture itself, designed to be a rough work which fit into a smooth place (the lines of the Van Wylen Library), suggests Muste's place in the history of Hope College. Even people who a r e not art m a j o r s can understand the symbolism. Yet the Board of Trustees unconditionally rejected even the temporary display of the sculpture, the work of a Hope alumnus, even after it had been twice approved by the Campus Arts Committee If the issue truly is, a s both sides agree, so very minor in the scope of Hope College concerns, then the Board of Trustees' decision should not be final and the sculpture should be placed in the Van Wylen Library, even if only temporarily. An unwillingness to compromise on the " u n i m p o r t a n t " issues seriously undermines the claim and goal of a liberal a r t s education. Liberal arts stands for variety and acceptance. Authoritative no's" a r e more expected from monolithic universities. Or so we thought. For Hope College to a p p e a r to have a Board that m a k e s unilateral and uncompromising decisions about such " m i n o r " issues a s sculptural aesthetics speaks volumes to current students, prospective students, their parents and even alumni. And with the recent memory of the Board's collective foot-dragging on the honorary degree for the South African reverend, Alan Boesak, one has to question just whose interests the Board h a s in mind these days. The Hope community should be allowed to register its opinion on whether the Muste sculpture is " s u i t a b l e " or not. The issue here is not obscenity, it's aesthetics. The Board of Trustees should not try to eliminate debate over the issue by keeping the sculpture hidden away. This may indeed be a minor issue, but a willingness on the part of the Board of Trustees to repeatedly use authoritative and unconditional power reflects poorly on this college and its leadership.

Well. 1 believe it is high time somebody c a m e to the defense of these events, which a r e among Hope s greatest traditions Laura Huntington Wyss (and I don't wish to single her out but she s e e m s to be the spokesperson of the dissatisfied) claimes these traditions to be sexist. She is by no m e a n s the final authority on what is and what is not sexist, li should be known to all that there a r e many students and alumni ( i n c l u d i n g m y s e l f ) who vehemently disagree with her Just because she is the most vocal does not mean she must also be correct. And I will debate this issue with her. So give me a call, Ms. Sexism, and we'll talk (392-8377). F u t h e r m o r e , I don't see these traditions a s worthy targets for change. Were there some in justice being done by these events, I would be the first to push for change. However, after my four y e a r s involvement with them (something Ms Wyss is sorely lacking), 1 still see only benefits, such as people of both sexes working toward a common goal. Moreover, Nykerk especially would suffer from fur ther integration. I see Nykerk not as a sexist tradition, but as a tradition which celebrates the ar tistic achievements of women; a very noble cause which also has its place in our society. Any change would definitely lessen my e n j o y m e n t of this wonderful event. Lastly, a s a new alumni, I ap^ preciate even m o r e what these t r a d i t i o n s p r o v i d e to Hope students. They gave m e some of the best m e m o r i e s of my college c a r e e r and have done the same for thousands of other Hope students. Unnecessary change of t h e s e e v e n t s m i g h t prevent f u t u r e Hope students from ex periencing t h e s a m e benefits. So to those who feel that the Pull and Nykerk a r e fine as is, take h e a r t , you a r e not alone and to all the students, faculty, and alumni I say this; Enjoy the Pull and Nykerk and all that they have to offer. They a r e two of Hope's g r e a t e s t traditions. Sincerely, Brian M. Andrew '90 Puller '90 P l a y Morale '92 Pull Coach Hope College a l u m n i '

Scissors and Chaucer


My life fell a p a r t when I lost my new scissors They were black ar\d gray and pure cutting jiatisfaction. Scissor heaven. 1 had used them to open a bag of butter toffee peanuts when the phone rang. I hopped up to answer it and got draged into some pointless discussion about the future of journalism at Hope. Meanwhile my mind kept wandering back to the butter toffee peanuts. I should have kept my mind on my scissors. ''Should-haves" don't m e a n heans.

Later that day I went back to find my scissors They hid I searched h a r d e r They mocked. I frantically tore up the room They smoked a cigarette and blew smoke rings around my frustration. So 1 thought I would just ignore the loss of my new scissors. I went about my business as if my life was normal. And then the phone rang. A good friend from home was going into the hospital for cancer surgery at the end of the week. My happy Hope life started to shake again. Trying to keep mv

Morale girl denies sexism P e a r Editors: Here we go again. The everlasting w a r of whether Pull and Nykerk a r e sexist. I was a morale girl for two years and a m very proud of it. I would very much like to see Pull without the m o r a l e girls because nothing would h a p p e n . Calls would be totally missed and the g u y s w o u l d be h u r t i n g emselves by pulling out of nison. As f a r as I know every ingle morale girl is very much appreciated. As far as sexism goes, you, Miss Wyss, a r e the only one who seems to be concerned as to who does what and in what vent they do it. I c a n ' t a r g u e from the ykerk stand point of this issue, t as a Pull participant, I have et to meet a guy who wanted to on the side of a pit. And while

Si •

1 have met many girls who would like to be in the pits, myself included, I have yet to meet a female who could survive the Pull workouts, and don't even think that some girls haven't tried. There a r e lots of guys who c o u l d n ' t even s u r v i v e the workouts. 1 guess what it comes down to is tradition. Those who participate in the events, as f a r as I know, don't have a problem with it because if they did, they wouldn't do it. If everyone felt the way you do. Miss Wyss, the traditions would have died long ago, but they haven't, have they? So do a lot of us a favor, a n d give it up Miss Wyss. You're beating a very dead horse and people a r e sick of you trying to revive it. Kris Tichy ('92) Morale Girl

mind occupied, 1 went looking for the scissors again. Somewhere I distictly heard a s h a r p "Hah ". Since 1 c o u l d n ' t find the scissors 1 did the next best thing and buried myself ina researched explication of Shakespearean Sonnet 94 What is especially disturbing about this is that 1 actually enjoyed the work It was a type of paper that 1 hadn't written since high school so it had nostalgia going for it. My mind could wrap around the explication even as my heart was breaking on the phone with my sick friend. The week passed My scissors remained lost. The surgery went as well as could be expected. That day I spent seven hours churning out the paper. Even though 1 was enjoying doing it, somewhere in the back of my head 1 couldn't help hearing the little scissor voice. The scissors said, "What's the point?" I ignored it, knowing the answer. The Sonnet 94 explication was for British Literature which w a s required for my major which would allow m e to graduate, get a good job, move to the suburbs and continue to pre-

tend that life is peach shnapps But then last Sunday night my world ended In that s a m e British Literature class, we are required to read Geoffrey Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales." Now going into the class I had a dull suspicion that this could be a problem. But I never suspected Let m e tell you the truth of the matter: I HATE CHAUCER. I'm genetically incapable of reading him. My mind refuses to focus on it. Within three pages my palms start to sweat and my blood begins to boil I become flustered. Finishing a page I realize that I have no clue what Chaucer said about the F r i a r on that page I reread it. I re-notcomprehend-anything This year, s a m e story different ramifications. With e a c h reading assignment there is a page of questions. They're bloody difficult when you're reading comprehension level is at-5. Tonight my frustration ruptured and Chaucer and the entire Norton Anthology went flying down the stairs.

Multi-culturalism should reach even Borculo by Scott Kaukonen News Editor The t e r m "multi-culturalism" invokes images of rooms full of p e o p l e of v a r i o u s r a c e s , religionsandnationalities, trying to understand their differences and their commonalities. On the Hope campus, it may be illustrated by a fashion show sponsored by the Black Coalition, a food festival hosted by the international students. Or simply one Dutch-American discussing the Persian Gulf with a student from Uganda. This past weekend, Hope played host to a Great Lakes College Association (GLCA) Conference on the very subject. But the importance of multiculturalism, though perhaps not as obviously, can be just a s relevant in the relations between a student from Borculo and a student f r o m Birmingham Hills. Or between a student whose 16th birthday present ws a day off from chores and one who landed the keys to a 1990 Mustang.

Living Colour works well together on 'Time's Up;' second album is even more vivid by Bill Meengs a r t s editor After the success of their debut album "vivid," the band Living Colour took two years to put together their follow up album "Time's Up." Many times, when a band spends so long in the studio working on an album, it will end up sounding overproduced. That is not the case here. Living Colour once again teamed up with Ed Stasium to produce "Time's Up." Stasium, along with Mick J a g g e r , were responsible for the production of the band's first LP. Stasium has the band sounding much tighter and funkier this time out. But m a k e no mistake. Living Colour is still

a rock and roll band. The d i f f e r e n c e this time around.is that the group works much better together. E a c h member gets his own moment of glory, but they're able to mesh together well in the group context. Cory Glover is in much better voice this time out, and spends more time singing, rather than screaming. Guitarist Vernon Reid continues to emerge as one of the premeire guitarists Reid cont i n u e s to d a z z l e w i t h t h e quickness of his riffs. These can be heard best on the first single " T y p e " and the song "Information Overdrive." Reid is at his best when he

changes styles in the middle ol a song. Reid shows this best on "Type," "Time's Up" and 'New Jack Theme " In each of these songs Reid works between a whirling dervish of licks and a choral-laden anthemic style. The rhythm section of bassist Muzz Skillings, and d r u m m e r William Calhoun, pound out a driving beat throughout the album. On " T i m e ' s U p , " however, they lay down more of a funk beat. In contrast with the heavy metal style heard on parts of the first album. There isn't a song a s catchy as "Glamour Boys," or "Cult of Personality" on "Time's Up," but it is an excellent album none the less.

Greek Week

Reformed church ordains Van Arendonk by E n c Wolthuis staff writer

Students at Hope over the past two years have known Scott Van Arendonk as the a s s i s t a n t chaplain of the college. But as of this past summer, Scott also became an ordained minister of the Reformed Church. His four years of college and five years of seminary culminated in a final oral exam before the Southwest Michigan classis in June. So what does it mean to be ordained? "It's not that much different," said Scott, "but now I'm qualified to do the sacraments, such as the Lord's supper, baptism, and m a r r i a g e . " Right now however, he spends most of his t i m e with w o r s h i p leading, counseling (from m a r r i a g e to crisis), programming-organizing of campus religious groups and events, and "cooperating and communicating with the Student development office, we do a lot of that," said Scott.

One time in particular that Scott r e m e m b e r s being called upon happened just a few weeks after he b e c a m e the assistant chaplain. A new student, Eric Exum, died in his dorm one night of a severe asthma attack. For several weeks after that Scott had to draw upon his counseling skills to help the students work through the tragedy. As f o r t h e p r e s e n t , t h e chaplain's office is focusing much of its attention toward student church on Sunday. Because of t h e d i v e r s e r e l i g i o u s backgrounds of the student body, student church will be trying alternative forms of worship, stressing greater student participation in the services, and addressing issues relavent to the student's lives. Chances a r e that Scott did not see this step in his future when he enrolled at Hope as a freshman with a Computer Science m a j o r

Scott, however, soon became dissatisfied with C o m p u t e r Science as a maior. and instead found the religion classes more to his liking. He also enjoyed his role as student co-leader of Fellowship of Christian Students, and graduated with a religion m a j o r and a psychology minor. After graduating from Hope in 1984, Scott e n t e r e d Western Seminary He completed his first two years in seminary before accepting the job of assistant chaplain. With his new responsibilties to his work and wife, he had to spread his last year of seminary over the next three years. In order to be ordained, however, a seminary student must take an oral exam in front of the class for each year of seminary, and a final oral exam after receiving his seminary degree. Scott also said that the prospective minister cannot be ordained until he-she has been called by a church or institution, such as Hope in Scott's case.

Professor shortage causes faculty raids by B.J. Hoeptner (CPS) - Like a m a j o r league baseball team, Emory University in Atlanta is starting this season with a powerful new lineup in its French department.

The men's soccer team split between its opponents this past week The Flying Dutchmen were defeated by Michigan State University (5-1) at the newly renovated Buys Athletic Field, but. they defeated Olivet (6-1) at Olivet The Spartans took only eight shots on goal, but converted on five. The first two goals came from penalty shots in the first half. The goals were scored by Carl H o p f i n g e r and Mike Rawlins Rawlins added the third goal to end the first half scoring The Dutchmen fired back in the second half when Randy Brothers ( '92) scored Hope's only goal on a scramble off a rebound 15 minutes into the half. "I was excited to play since I hadn't played in two y e a r s , " said Brothers after the game MSU responded with goals byDerek Fell and Brad Petzinger to put the game away. "They were effective." said first year coach Steve Smith to his players after the game He added. "I can't ex press any disappointment in you right now "

Jeff Leibel C94) broke his jaw in two places and was taken to the emergency room at half time. "He will be out for the season, but may be red shirted and able to play for another four years," said Smith ' Hope's goalie, Aric Dershem. couldn't stop MSU in the second half. A mere two minutes after Brothers scored. Felt added a goal Penzinger put the last goal of the game in 30 minutes into the second half. Dershem had three saves in this game compared to last year's 18-when MSU defeated Hope by the same score We did the same thing to the two teams we beat as they did to us." commented S m i t h . ' r e f e r r ing to Hope s victories over Trinity Christian. III. and North Park. III. Hope's defense was not the only problem. Taking only six shots on goal in the game, and only one in the first half, doesn't give many chances to score. "We knew our weaknesses," said Smith, "but we had no time to practice " They had no practice after travelling the weekend before and had only one day of practice before thev plaved Olivet

Field hockey team enters last season

The Hope College field hockey team practices their ball handling skills as they prepare for their last season of play. They have high hopes of contending in the MIAA. P h o i o b y L a n c e E v e r t

by Rochelie Anderson sports editor The Flying Dutch field hockey team should be a contender for the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association title this year a s they return a squad that is full of letter winners. Coach Karla Wolters returned 11 letter winners from last y e a r ' s 12-8 team that finished second in the MIAA. Sue Spring( 4 91) and Abby VanDuyneC91) a r e cocaptains of this years team. Leading the returnees a r e two All-MIAA players -Spring and Eileen MalkewitzC91). Spring led the team in scoring in 1989 with 12 goals and four assists. Malkewitz, as Hope's starting goalie, yielded just 22 goals over 20 games and was credited with nine shutouts. The Flying Dutch tied their first game of the year, 0-0, when they played Wittenberg University of Ohio at Calvin on Saturday. Sept. 8. In their second game, they defeated Kalamazoo by the srore of SO

Their last g a m e was played at Goshen, Ind Where they played under the lights to tie at 0 in double overtime last Saturday, Sept. 15. The team has enjoyed three consecutive winning seasons under coach Wolters, posting a 30-22-2 record The teams strength this year is their defense. "We can keep the other team from scoring, but we need to utilize the potential we have for a strong offense, and score to win the games," said VanDuyne. This fact is evident in their two scoreless games so tar this year. They have strengths both on the field as well a s off the field. "The team becomes a support group for family problems, or spiritual growth, or in having problems with s c h o o l . " c o m mented VanDuyne. "We're supportive to each other in other parts of our lives It's a neat advantage to be in a sport if you're not involved in other campus activities," said VanDuvne


According to Spring and VanDuyne, Calvin and DePauw a r e their strongest competition. The team scrimmaged Calvin already this year and lost in regular playing time, but with 10 extra minute®, they tied Calvin H "We need to learn to work together and communicate and learn our positions," commented VanDuyne,"so we know where we need to be at the right t i m e . " Unfortunately, the field hockey team will not be playing as a varsity team next year Spring commented, " t h e r e are a mix ture of reasons " The first of which is the fact that there are not many referees left in the MIAA They are hard to find and expensive to bring to a game. The second reason is the scholastic part of it. "We're academic students before we're athletes." said Spring, "since we have only four MIAA teams, we travel to Kentucky and Ohio to play other teams and this takes a lot of time away from classes." VanDuyne added,"the reasons make sense, but we're still disappointed." According to the co-captains, the teams reaction was quite similar "We'd like to fight if there's a chance next year and I think there is," said Spring. This chance will not be a s a varsity sport, but rather as a club sport. " I t ' s going to be hard to find the people to have a club sport," said Spring. Coach Wolters could not recruit this year and so they do not have the experienced people joining the team as they did last year " P e o p l e would specifically look to Hope because it had a good field hockey team, so now we won't be getting the really dedicated players. They'll go to o t h e r s c h o o l s , " a d d e d Van Duyne For Ihis year though,the field hockey team is in full swing. They have only four home games. The highlight of which will be the Michigan-Indiana Tournament on Sept 28-29.

Rachel Zimmer( 4 93). Shelly Bareman ('92), and Janine Whittmore( , 91) all contributed to Mope's next four points The Dutch were only one point from winning the match when Olivet made their move. A short serve and key mistakes by Hope gave Olivet the game 16-14. * We lost our intensity of focus," said coach Donna Eaton, "we were stuck in a few ruts where Olivet scored in two dif ferent set-ups."

The first g a m e was over almost as soon as it began with Hope victorious 15-€ Although this was only their third game together, the Flying Dutch showed unity as a team. "We're a completely different t e a m , " said Holly Brown ( 4 92), "We're more united this y e a r ; there aren't any weaknesses " The unity was also evident as they took control of the second g a m e At one time, the lady Dutch rallied to score eight consecutive points. Olivet gained the momentum near the end of the game. It was not enough to win and the Dutch had two games under their belt, winning 15-8. The third g a m e showed a shift in momentum a s the Comets jumped out in front scoring the first four points. Hope rallied back and soon the score was tied at 10.

Hope gained back their intensity for the fourth game. With a long rally, Hope controlled the game easily. The final point coming on a tip that landed on the line from Whittmore to end the game 15-5. Not only did the Flying Dutch secure their first MIAA victory by defeating the Comets, they also finished in the final four at the G r e a t L a k e s Collegiate Association Tournament held at Ohio Wesleyan last weekend. "Hope has won the GLCA Tournament for the past five years - so we're expecting to be in the thick of things," remarked Coach Eaton after Wednesday's triumphant match. Her prediction proved correct. The Tournament was divided into two pools. Emerging undefeated in their pool, the Fyling Dutch advanced on to the semi-finals.
