Career Center grows, offers new services by Dave DeKok One of the more difficult questions a student is faced with during his four years at college is what he will do when he graduates. Oftentimes students leave school with little idea about what job they want or how to go about getting one when they decide. THE HOPE CAREER Counseling and Placement Center, headed by Myra Zuverink, aids students in solving those two problems. According to Zuverink, although the Center formerly serviced only prospective teachers, it now has expanded its services to include students with any major or intended career.

MYRA ZUVERINK •WHEN STUDENTS come down to see us we ask them to register and make out a set of credentials," she said. "These include three references from faculty members. It's easier for a student to get references now because after several years it's often hard to get in touch with former teachers to have them write the recommendations." Zuverink explained that the credentials, including the references, go on permanent file and may be referred to by a graduate for the rest of his life. Letters from firms the graduate is employed by will also be included in the file.

THE CENTER "DOES not find jobs for students," she stated. Rather "we match job openings with the credentials of students who might qualify for a certain job opening and send them (the credentials) off to the company 'making the offer. They take it from there." Another service offered by the Center is scheduling interviews with representatives of corporations and school systems visiting the campus. "LAST YEAR, FOR example, representatives from IBM, ParkeDavis, and General Electric visited Hope. The economy is picking up now so more recruiting is being done by corporations," added Zuverink. The picture is not so bright with school systems, though, she said. Last year only five school systems sent recruiters, compared to 60 five years ago. ZUVERINK FEELS students are more career oriented now and said they often express a desire to know if their major will tie into a career. The center has an extensive career library now, she added, and also a booklet detailing what careers are connected with each major. According to Zuverink, the Center's services were employed by many of last year's graduating class "FORTY-EIGHT percent of the class of '72 were education students, and they were required to use our services. However, a good percentage of the other majors used it also." She pointed out that this somewhat contradicted the statement in the Hope catalogue that almost half of all Hope graduates go on to graduate school, since few education students try immediately for a higher degree and if their number were added to the number of other majors using the Center, the sum would come out to far more than 50 percent. She allowed, though, that a faculty member had told her perhaps the catalogue statement referred to the number of graduates which eventaully go to graduate school.

Western Seminary gives nod to women students " \?

by Annette Miller "At first I was a little apprehensive. I remember singing in chapel the first few times and not being able to hear my voice above all those men," said Joyce Borgman, speaking of her decision last year to enroll in Western Tehological Seminary. "My voice is a little stronger now," she smiled. LIKEWISE, the voices of many women in the Reformed Church seem to be growing a little stronger. Although women graduates of Reformed Church Seminaries are not yet allowed to be ordained, the seminary does offer an alternative to the Bachelor of Divinity Degree.

"There are many women who don't think of seminary as a real possibility. Their first reaction is it's not for me.' But more and more of them are beginning to see the viable possibilities in teaching, either at the college or graduate level or in fields of clinicalpastoral psychology," said Borgman, who is Head Resident at Brumler House. SHE SAID on the whole her male counterparts at the seminary have been interested and very supportive of her. According to Curry Pikkaart, student body president at Western Seminary, the reception of Borgman and the other women en-

Suicide Prevention Service, the emphasis is an listening "Suicidal feelings are certainly involved in several of the calls we receive each month, although the majority of callers face other personal crises such as unwanted pregnancies or parent-child hostilities," explained Cathy Pfeiffer, a 1973 Hope graduate and director of the Suicide Prevention Service in Holland. Essentially an emergency answering service, the program began nearly five years ago under the Community Mental Health Services for which Pfeiffer serves as volunteer co-ordinator. Off-campus student volunteers are now being sought by the Ministry of Christ's People to work a weekly six to 12 hour shift answering calls for the prevention hotline. Off-campus students are

preferred, Pfeiffer explained, because they need not be reached through the campus switchboard. She added that this is the first year Hope students will become directly involved with the program. Two training sessions have been tentatively set for early November and will be conducted by Pfeiffer and Dr. Leslie Beach, professor of psychology, and experienced volunteers. Pfeiffer described this orientation as "empathy training in small groups." In explaining the program's philosophy, Pfeiffer pointed out that the emphasis is on listening to the caller's problems and "trying to help him through the immediate crisis." "We attempt to let him do everything he can for himself," she added.

rolled in the seminary this year has been very good. He pointed out the need for women in seminary. "The church is crying out for workers in the field of Christian education and this is one ripe area for women," Pikkaart said. HE CONTINUED, "The adjustments of enrolling women in the seminary has caused some problems. Some seminarians are opposed to having women in any capacity. One man even came up to me and said, 'you're in the wrong business.' " Borgman added, "So many men are conditioned to listen to a women but they don't really hear what she says. Things I say that 1 really feel are important are sometimes not picked up with an equal amount of urgency as those of a man." SHE SAID that a real test of her abilities came after she monumentally became the first women in her classis of the Reformed Church to be granted a license to preach. "At the first churches where I preached, women would come up to me and say, we enjoyed your sermon, but it's just not like hearing a man's voice," she recounted. Another memorable experience came when the seminary held a week-end retreat and she discovered that she was the only woman present. "I wanted to go but I had qualms about the talk it might conjure up. But the Dean gave his approval and in the end it turned out to be a good experience," stated Borgman. ALTHOUGH the General Synod of the Reformed Church does not yet allow the ordination of women, it does grant women a license to preach. The Synod has engaged in a spirited debate on

the subject stemming from the use of the words " h e " and "his" in the Book of Church Order. The Synod decided to grant Joyce Stedge, a 47-year-old mother of six and graduate of Union Seminary, permission to preach before Reformed Church congregations. However, according to the Church Herald, "This does not mean that the door has been opened for women to become ministers of the Word within the Reformed Church." THOSE WHO oppose ordination base their views scripturally on a passage in which Paul advocates the silence of women in the Corinthian Church. Borgman said, "There is also a passage which includes the words 'in Christ there is no male or female.' But I believe this provides a sound basis which asserts that women are suitable and also qualified for the ministry." t4 THOSE WHO INTERPRET the passage in Paul literally and oppose women ministers are some of the same people who hire women Sunday School teachers, choir directors, etc." Borgman added. She stressed that women who contemplate entering seminary should do so because of their desire for service and their personal relationship with God, rather than their desire to merely join the ranks. Now, at the peak of women's lib she said that, "it could be a thing to flaunt and abuse." BORGMAN DEMURRED as to whether she will test the statutes of the Reformed Church and seek ordination. "My general desire is to communicate the word of God," she stated. According to Borgman, this communication can take the form of a career in

clinical-pastoral psychology or teaching. She said, "people need to be healed, both physically, mentally and spiritually." Borgman is the only woman enrolled in the Bachelor of Divinity Program at Western but there are five other women enrolled in the Christian Education program. Earlier this year. Western was charged by the civil rights division of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare with discrimination against women. According to the seminary's administrative dean. Reverend Elton M. Eenigenberg, the seminary has maintained an open admission policy including women for several years. HE STATED, "Although no active recruiting has been done for women, approximately 20 women have been enrolled at the seminary during the past few years." The Reformed Church admits women into their seminaries but does not allow them to use their training to become ministers. EENIGENBERG said, "Before any woman comes here she is informed of the limitations." He added, "It could be an implicit form of discrimination." "I see nothing biblically opposed to the ordination of women, although LWrotc some articles against it in the 1950's. I've changed my mind and 1 believe that the New Testament favors neither sex," Eenigenberg said. Will ordination of women in the Reformed Church be forthcoming? Eenigenberg responded, "I think ordination will eventually be established, especially in the eastern states where there it receives more positive response. It will take much longer in the West but it will come."

Hope College inchor


Innocents abroad The foreign language requirement has drawn much criticism among Hope students in recent years. Among the varied reasons that students cite, are that foreign language study is often a tedious endeavor v^iich has little practical application. The aflc/?or*. believes such complaints stem from a dangerously ethnocentric attitude which sees-no need to attempt to understand an alien culture. Criticism of foreign language teaching methods as boring and unimaginative is often justified. But it makes little sense to ignore the value of foreign language study by eliminating the requirement because it lacks popular appeal. We believe a better approach would be to offer an alternative.

This editorial will attempt to defend the principle of learning a foreign language as essential to understanding what human beings are-which is the aim of a liberal arts education. We also offer an alternative to the present method of classroom learning of a foreign language, and instead recommend that every Hope student study for a minimum of one semester abroad. As citizens of the United States we can no longer afford to cling to the view that we can survive without the rest of the world. The world is becoming too small for us to maintain such an attitude. International cooperation, detentes and economic agreements symbolize the kind of world we are living in today. With the monumental problems of survival facing all of mankind there is a greater need for world unity in solving global crises. Of course, just because a student learns a foreign language does not mean that we will instantly find solutions to world problems. But by learning to speak a language, we will begin to grasp the values and needs of foreign cultures. By showing that as Americans we care enough about another country tomake attempts at speaking their language, we will do much to overcome "the ugly American" image. Such an image is often held by people of different countries, and for understandable reasons. They know that our President constantly reminds us that we are "number one." Many American tourists are shocked upon discovery that everyone in France or Tanzania does not speak English. Though English may be the language of diplomacy, we need to communicate with the common people, if we want to develop any sort of sympatique with a foreign culture. Untimately, the problem comes down to question of respect. As Americans, are we going to be presumptuous enough to believe that everyone should speak English? Some Hope students say they do not need to learn a foreign language for the simple reason that they will never go abroad. As communication with foreign peoples becomes increasingly essential to the business and political world, and with travel abroad increasingly popular, such an attitude seems, at best, naive. A disinterest in learning the language of

another people also contradicts the goals of a liberal arts education. If a liberal arts education involves trying to understand vy^iat it means to be human, it would seem necessary that we learn how another culture speaks and thinks. As the need to understand foreign cultures is necessary from both a humanistic and pragmatic point of view, the anchor recommends that Hope require every student to study for at least one semester abroad. Such an experience would give a Hopeite first-hand knowledge of a different culture. The program could stimulate new thought and understanding of foreign peoples. Perhaps a student could begin to look at world issues from a different point of view than his ingrained American way of thinking. Most of us at Hope are sheltered to varying degrees. From the classic example of the Iowa farmboy to the person from the "enlightened" East, most students have little understanding of what it means to be a Frenchman or a German. Most of our opinions are based on a totally American perspective. As human beings in a culture that has a different world view, we can also begin to better understand what it is to be an American. Our program, specifically, would require every junior to study for a minimum of one semester in a foreign country. We believe the junior year to be the ideal year, as a student has hopefully gained some idea of what a liberal arts education is, and could incorporate them into his overseas study. Upon his return to the campus he will have much to offer to the Hope community. The cost of studying abroad, as present programs indicate, is comparable to studying at Hope. The reduced number of students on the campus would enable professors to take a semester off and continue research. Some professors would be involved in the foreign study program, as coordinators and advisors would be needed to administer the program. A semester foreign study program could spur new interest among students in their respective field of study. The prospective political scientist could examine first-hand the party systems in France* while the biology student could work with leading European biologists. Likewise, the philosophy student could attain a better appreciation of Eastern thought by studying in India. In an era where President Gordon Van Wylen has called for "innovative and creative" thinking, alternatives to traditional methods of academic endeavor should be examined. The basic premise of the foreign language requirement is a valid one, but like other academic requirements, the method of accomplishing said goals may be inadequate to the Hope student today. In striving to improve the educational atmosphere at Hope, we should attempt to enrich the academic program while still adhering to the sound academic philosophy of the college. The opportunity to study abroad could integrate classroom study with immediate experience.



Bridging the gap The tinal aim of both Hebraism and Hellenism, is no doubt the same: man's perfection or salvation. The very language which both of them use in schooling us to reach this aim is often identical. Even when their language indicates by variation the different courses of thought which are uppermost in each discipline, even then the unity of the final end and aim is still apparent. To employ the actual words of that discipline with which we ourselves are most familiar . . . that final end and aim is 'that we might be partakers of the divine nature.' These are the words of a Hebrew Apostle; but, of Hellenism and Hebraism alike, this is, 1 say, the aim. - M a t t h e w Arnold in Culture and Anarchy In last week's column, we discussed the spiritual disciplines of Hebraism and Hellenism, calling attention to the ways in which they differ. The purpose of this column will be to reexamine these disciplines in order to indicate how their similarities may be appreciated, and to point to the necessity of reconciling Hebraism and Hellenism to the greatest extent possible. THE TASK OF co-ordinating these forces is of paramount importance to our college community. We who struggle with the roles of faith and reason in learning and probe the relationship of human values to intellectual values are grappling with the forces of Hebraism and Hellenism, whether we recognize these forces or not. In coming to grips with how Hebraism and Hellenism inform each other, Hope can examine the soil from which many of its challenges have grown. The Hope community was reminded of its task to reconcile Hebraism and Hellenism by Dr. I. John Hesselink, President of Western Seminary, in his address to the fall convocation. IN ANSWERING the question, "What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?", he traced some of the conflicts which have surrounded this question, and concluded with a thesis this column seeks to mirror: Athens, or our Hellenic heritage of rationality, science, and philosophy, has everything to do with Jerusalem and our Hebraic

heritage of faith, moral valor and committment. A first step to balancing these outlooks is to break free of all our simplistic notions of them. All too often our study and discussion of this topic are superficial, restricted to a few passing observations on a Paul or Plato. IT IS MY BELIEF that this simplistic view is a result of our "stacking the cards" in understanding the scope of both Hebraism and Hellenism. Should the splendor of ancient Greece be limited to the thought of Aristotle and Plato? Is the richness of Hebraism totally captured by a Paul? Common sense and intellectual thoroughness both answer no; yet it is surprising to note how often seemingly thorough efforts to understand the legacy of Hebraism and Hellenism are restricted to only a few major figures of Jerusalem and Athens. IF ONE WERE to take a complete look at the total spectrum of thought in ancient Greece, I believe that one would find it more similar to Hebraism than one had first supposed. Friedrich Nietzsche once observed that the spirit of Greek tragedies did not arise out of a vacuum; rather, they found roots in a sense of religious awe in the^ face of the suffering and evil of life, a sense which is commonly supposed to be an exclusively Hebrew trait. Similarly, of one were to probe the entire legacy of Hebraism, one would find not a few elements which link it more closely to Hellenism than is popularly thought. For example, it is commonly held that reason and wisdom are basically foreign to Hebraism; yet a close examination of the hidden, interior logic of the JudeoChristian faith would no doubt uncover many important links to Hellenism. IN CONCLUSION, all this is not to say that we can effect some final treaty between these two forces. The questions of reason and faith, science and ethicalreligious values, and of the life of the mind and the life of committment are all so dynamic and difficult that in the end they can perhaps only be balanced but never fully integrated. Yet this balance will enable the brightest lights of Athens and Jerusalem to beam on our path, lighting the way to both spiritual faith and intellectual competency. May we ever strive for this light!

Stratf ord trip: 'Richer by day with Shakespeare Editor's note: This feature was written by anchor reporter Kate Solms who attended the Shakespearian Festival held last week in Stratford, Ontario. "The play's the thing," William Shakespeare wrote 400 years ago. It was the same thing that drew 114 Hope students and faculty to Stratford, Ontario's Shakespeare Festival last weekend. The trip had been planned since last semester and pivoted around the viewing of two plays, Othello and The Taming of the Shrew. A CARAVAN of vehicles could be seen leaving Hope all day last Friday. Some luckier students drove their own cars, but most rode the college bus. The way to Stratford is mostly Canadian farmland and small country towns. Add to that the anticipation of Saturday, and the journey could not be termed unpleasant.

Anyone who expected halftimbered Tudor houses and women herding geese in the streets were sadly disappointed. Stratford is small and distinctly different from an American town of the same size. The streets have names like Downie and Albert, both of which wind around the homely Victorian town hall. Many of the stores were built in the last century and the center of town is a market square. Antique shops and art galleries are common sights, but there are no distinctly touristtrap stores. IN FACT, the only constant reminder that Stratford is different from any other older town are the beautiful Shakespeare Festival posters in every store window, showing two hands holding up an actor's mask. THE CURRENCY fluctuation caused some misunderstandings between store owners and visitors.

Observant students noticed that the American dollar was worth one Canadian douar Saturday morning, $.90 Saturday night, and $.94 on Sunday morning. It was a small, annoying reminder of the economics troubles in the United States. AT 2 P.M., people began walking toward the Festival Theatre for the afternoon performance of Othello. The theatre sits on a hill above the Avon River and inside one notices that its facilities are very modem and versatile. The critics didn't like Othello when they reviewed the play earlier in the year. Their main criticism centered on Nachum Buchman, who had the title role. He is an Israeli, and has a heavy accent, which the critics felt obscured some of his speeches. Many people who saw it that afternoon, however, thought that his accent lent credence to the play.

Tammi states

Summer theater successful The financial bookwork has not yet been completed for the Hope Summer Theater. But like such institutions as libraries and art museums, the success of the summer theater cannot be summed up by red and black ink in a ledger. An interview with Assistant Professor of Theater John Tammi revealed the many successes of this past summer's work. HOPE'S summer theater and the theater department itself are young (two and six years old respectively). "The summer theater venture aids the theater department by providing a means to search out and establish a character for the theater and explore various forms of production," Tammi said.

TAMMI said that the second year is probably the most difficult for establishing a theater. "The novelty of the idea has worn off but much work remains in finding a character and an audience," he continued. Tammi believes the summer theater's audience, the Holland community, has already benefited. He said that because of the establishment of a quality summer stock theater, they can enjoy a previously unavailable, cultural event. ACCORDING to Tammi, the college has benefited by drawing people to the campus in much the same way as Hope athletics pulls the community into college life. For the students, summer theater offers an opportunity for valu-

Gerbet, whose U.S. tour is being sponsored by the Institute for European Studies of which Hope is an affiliate, will speak at a public forum at 4 p.m. Monday in Wichers Auditorium on the topic

"The Present Situation of the European Community." Gerbet will also speak on the topic "France Today : Political Aspects" at 7 p.m. in Graves 206. He will be available for informal discussion with students and faculty in the Kletz area on Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. till noon. Students wishing to converse with Gerbet in French are invited to dine at the French table at 5:30 p.m. on Monday in the Phelps Conference Room.


able education. Technical training and Workshop instruction are offered, and many are afforded a chance to test their acting prowess. Tammi explained, "The program this summer tried to change the usual summer stock format of musical and light comedy entertainment." This year's performances of Bus Stop and Shakespeare's Taming Of The Shrew met enthusiastic audiences. Proposals for next year's program are still being worked out, Tammi indicated.

It was tiring looking at all the actors' backs and listen ing to the audience laugh at something you couldn't see. Very little was played to the sides of the theatre.

Hope gridders lose season opener, 7-0, to Manchester Hope gridders dropped their first game of the 1973 season to Manchester College by a score of 7-0. A fumble of the second-half kick-off resulted in the winning Spartan touchdown. Statistically, Hope dominated the game. Ed Sanders led the offense by rushing for a total of 165 yards. Fullback Chuck Brooks ran for 54 yards, while quarterback Bob Carlson carried the ball for 38. Offensively, Hope picked up 289 yards while yielding only 158 yards to Manchester. Defensively, Hope gave up only 77 yards on the ground. A strong rush which sacked Manchester's

quarterback six times was led by Dave Yeiter and Craig Van Tuinen. Turnovers and a weak passing game robbed Hope of several scoring opportunities. Four fumbles and one pass interception were grabbed by Manchester. Quarterbacks Tim Van Heest and Carlson succeeded in only three of 13 pass attempts. Wingback Gary Constant was responsible for all three receptions. Saturday the Flying Dutchmen will go after their first win against Concordia College. This is the first home game of the year and will be played at Riverview Park.

Outlook optimistic

Booters in enviable position Under the direction of new coach Glenn Van Wieren, Hope's soccer team is in the enviable position of being the only fall sports team attempting to repeat as conference champions. Last Saturday, the soccer team lost 3-1 to Spring Arbor. But even in defeat Van Wieren was optimistic about the prospects for the season. Unable to move the ball during the first half, a new strategy enabled Hope's booters to dominate play during the second half. The Flying Dutchmen were

able to put 26 shots on goal to Spring Arbor's ten. The single Hope goal was scored early in the second half by freshman John Gough, with an assist by Mark VanVoorst. Van Wieren was pleased with the team's performance and believes they will improve with each game. Eight veterans have returned from last year's championship team. Led by co-captains Kurt Avery and Glenn Swier, the team will be depending greatly on the scoring ability of Van Voorst, who along with being voted All-

Theater department sets year's production schedule The theater department has announced its schedule for the 1973-74 school year.

MIAA, booted 13 goals last season. Francis Kaminski, an honorable-mention All-MIAA pick last year and goalie Bob Luidens will help anchor the defense. Veteran Abdul al Mawlawi might be lost for the season after incurring a broken nose in last weeks game. Today at 4 p.m., the Dutchmen take on Oakland at Van Raalte Field. There, a soccer enthusiast will see a unique idea in effect - ball girls. Hope is the only school in the nation that has them. They will be strategically positioned around the field so play is not hindered when the ball is kicked out of bounds.

A much improved Hope golf team showed promise of things to come by beating Aquinas College 347-349 in a match last Wednesday. A cold, windy day hindered Coach Ric Scott's golfers, yet even under these conditions, the teams scores showed a great improvement over last year. This year's squad is led by senior captain Mark Dargene. Dargene finished fourth in last year's MIAA tourney. Rick Switzer is also back after finishing tenth last

year as a freshman. Other players on the team are Jim Goldman, Jeff Riemersma, Mike Schmidt and Kurt Pugh. Jim Wocjicki is playing golf this season after a broken foot forced him to drop football. Scott indicated that this years team is rated about even with the rest of the teams in the conference. The MIAA tournament will be hosted this year by Hope at their home course, Clearbrook Country Club.

Security tightened at Peale Science Center Students trying to enter Peale Science Center after 5 p.m. have been confronted with a phenomenon previously unknown to Hope; a security guard who won't allow them to enter unless previously authorized. According to Glenn Bareman, director of public safety, the reason for such cautions is to "assure better security and lessen the danger of vandalism and theft."

In the past, the college has had problems with elementary school children entering buildings. Liability for these children as well as building control is a factor, according to Bareman. Also, Hopeites are not allowed entrance unless specifically authorized. Worth nearly $4 million, the Peale Science Center contains extensive laboratory and animal research equipment as well as a science library.
