T h e r e are pages upon pages of research describing the effects of cycling, swimming, and marathon running on the human body, but no one has yet documented any findings on an event such as the Pull. A research team comprised of Kinesiology Professor Mark Northuis, and Hope College s t u d e n t s Ben C o o k ( ' 9 8 ) and J e n n i f e r Geerdink ('98), have set out to change that. Last Spring, Northuis introduced the idea in a faculty meeting with Dr. Chris Barney, Dean of Students Richard Frost, and Coach John Patnott. He then offered the opportunity to Cook as a way to fulfill a graduation requirement for a degree in kinesiology. " N o research has been done before on the Pull," said Cook. "That is why we thought it would be a good idea." Northuis suggested the possibility of gathering some descriptive data on the Pull. " L e t ' s find out what's really going on [with the pullers' bodies] during the Pull." he said. According to Northuis, the researchers are currently testing blood pressure, heart rate, blood lactate levels, strength endurance, grip strength, vertical jump, body composition and total body water. "From this we hope to leam a lot more about the Pull," Northuis said. " O n e of the primary things w e ' r e looking for is heart rale fluctuations during heaving, lock-ins, and straining," he said. "If someone were to come out with a heart condition and not know it, we would be able to prevent it," Cook said.

In fact, in their preliminary research they did discover that one puller's heart rests at a slight angle, but this condition is not expected to affect his performance. Because Pull practice lasts only three weeks each year, there isn't much time to gather data. "We plan to continue the project next year and hopefully for several years to come," Northuis said. To test heart fluctuations before, during, and after the three-hours spent on the rope during the actual Pull, the researchers plan to strap portable heart monitors on the chests of several pullers.

The Student Congress ballots are in and the voter turnout was up almost 50 percent f r o m last year with 619 college voters. " T h e number may be doubled from last year, but we still have apathy," said Vice President Chad Joldersma ('99). Four spots remain unfilled. Hope College is currently missing one representative from Brownstone, one from Voorhees, and two from off-campus residences. According to Student Congress President Paul Loodeen ('99), the idea of having a representative for

every 93 or 9 5 students and from every residence is to be able to hear the voice of each side. T h e r e were several instances where nonpetitioned candidates' names were written in on the ballot. These write-ins will aid the Student Congress Executive Board in finding representatives where they are lacking. The cabinet will call the w r i t e ins a n d s e l e c t f o u r s t u d e n t s through a process of interviewing. The first Student Congress meeting will be held at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25 in the Chapel and all meetings are open for students to attend.

Armed with rubber gloves, plastic bags and scouting eyes, 38 Hope College students bussed down to Laketown Beach (between Saugatuck and Holland) to pretty up the sands for the 7th Annual Beachsweep.

The monitors are roughly 1/8 of an inch thick and one inch wide, and look much like a backpack strap with two small electrodes on the inner side against the chest. Every 60 seconds, a reading will be taken and transmitted to a small wristwatchlike device that will rest less than three feet from each puller. At the same time. Cook will keep a diary of the minutely activities. These readings will then be connected to a computer in the Dow where the heart activity will be interpreted according to the activity that was performed during each reading. more PULL on 2

Sports steal CIS stage ERICA GRAY staff reporter

From novice to N C A A , sports affect everyone. It seems appropriate, then, that the 18th annual Critical Issues Symposium is entitled, "Sport and American Life." "Sports was chosen as this year's topic because it relates directly to other current issues people are concerned about, such as race, gender and religion," s a i d George Kraft, chairpers o n of t h e Kinesiology Department.

Evening classes on Sept. 30 are cancelled and all classes the following day (with the exception of night classes) are cancelled in order to allow students to attend the presentations. "We are using sport as a springboard for other issues," Kraft said. "The role sports play in American life tells us a lot about who we are as a society and a l s o as individuals." Assistant Provost Alfredo Gonzales, who arranged this year's Critical Issues Symposium, said, "I want to make sure that students take advantage of the program so they know beyond what you can leam about these issues on T V . " Gonzales is enthusiastic about the outstanding lineup of speakers and thinks "Sports and American Life" will attract not only Hope students and faculty and Holland residents but also people from other cities and colleges. In response to the concern voiced by some that the topic is directed more towards males, Kraft said that the people heading the CIS "really wanted to make sure women get involved."

Two d a y s after the world w<^ stunned with the death of its Princess, it w a s devastated with the death of its Mother. While people were glued to their television set watching every little interview and speech regarding Princess Diana's death. Mother Teresa passed away and thus the world lost o n e of its greatest treasures. Not to put d o w n the death of Diana and say that her passing w a s not important, but in c o m p a r i s o n to M ot her Teresa, she is severely s h a d o w e d .

Something grabbed my attention last Monday as I headed into the library: several dozen students circled a man carrying a banner. I c o u l d n ' t read the b a n n e r f r o m where I was, and my curiosity drew me to the scene. As I approached the crowd, it was obvious there was some debate as well as entertainment occuring. I stood to listen to what students had been told for the past day in the shadow of the chapel: This man, Tom, had a banner and handouts that read "SIN according to G o d " and p r o c e e d e d to list a couple dozen specific sins according to the Bible. Tom's sermon centered around his assumptions and stereotypes of his student audience, pointing his finger at everyone who challenged him. Bible verses spewed out of his mouth, whether or not they were relevant, and intimidated those at whom they were directed. I did not witness any attempt at gentleness or grace, the very essence of the message of Jesus, G o d ' s Son. He turned off this particular audience so strongly that his interrogations

ries of a w e and w o n d e r b e i n g passed down is far-fetched. Pull is a team effort. No one person, puller or moraler, gives more or deserves more credit. We work together, we pull together, we eat together. We win as a team or we lose as a team. N o o n e person is ever lifted up higher than another. That's what a team is. If that's the change in tradition you're looking for I ' m afraid y o u ' l l never see it. As for male moralers, they're just as welcome to try out as anyone else. A m y C h a m p a i g n e ('00)

I can only imagine how pained those who knew Peter were by such a curt report.

A tale of t w o bands SAC and WTHS co-sponsor area bands this weekend MIRIAM BEYER intermission editor

Two bands, both alike in dignity, will perform this Saturday. Sept. 27, at the Knickerbocker Theater at 8 p.m. Fat Amy. one of the bands, is well known in the West Michigan area. Originating from East Lansing, they have been playing at several bars and coffee shops along the lakeshore recently, and are starting

to make it big. Fat A m y ' s sound is described by the c a m p u s ' radio station. W T H S , as "like Verve Pipe, except with a little more edge and less blues." They are a guitar-oriented band, composed of four men. The other band. Smoking Popes, is also made up of four guys. They are from Chicago, and their sound is in somewhat the same vein as Fat Amy's. Originally, the t w o bands contacted the Student Activities Com-

Dan M c C u e ( ' 9 9 ) , a m e m b e r both of S A C and W T H S . alerted the radio station of the news, and the two organizations decided to co-sponsor the event. Tickets for the concert are $3, and they can be purchased at the Student Union Desk.

M U S I C : Post-Pull e n t e r t a i n m e n t ! Yell your heart out all afternoon at the hundredth Pull, and then, if y o u ' r e old (and wise) enough, trek downtown to Bulch's Dry Dock for some hearty grub and a little jazz. H o p e ' s J a z z C h a m b e r E n s e m b l e I will start playing at 9 p.m., and they'll probably go for a couple of hours — longer, maybe, if the crowd's good . . . M U S I C : Brahms is here on campus, not to put you to sleep with his lullabies, but instead to celebrate the centennial of his death with you! The well-known romantic composer, who died in 1897, will be featured in this year's Faculty Recital Series, and the first concert is this Sun., Sept. 28, at 4 p.m. in Wichers Auditorium. Faculty pianists, violinists, clarinetists, and sopranos will perform. W E E K L Y S O C R A T E S S O I R E E S : a Jazz Master Class meets every Wednesday at Socrates Newscenter and C o f f e e Shop from 4:30 5:30 p.m. Jazz students, or anybody who has a jazz-type instrument and the urge, will play around, and the audience can offer comments, suggestions, criticisms, or just a pair of open ears . . . also, OPUS, Hope's LitArt Organization, sponsors an o p e n - p e r f o r m a n c e series at the coffee shop every Thursday evening starting at 8 p.m. Bring your kazoos, your dad's clothes from the sixties, your favorite Shakespeare verse, or anything else you think might make for a good performance. O P U S dubs the event a "free-for-all," and they mean it.

Volleyball begins on high n o t e WATER HAZARD Michael Zuidema

Disc o f Passion Forgcl bowling, ballroom dancing, and underwater pumpkin carving â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Frisbee golf is the new sport for the Olympics. Over the past weekend. I had the opportunity to play the first round of my Frisbee golf career. So I grabbed my friendly Editor-in-Chief, Glyn Williams, and set out for the course at hand. Anyone w h o saw us, knows the perils that our flying discs took. At this moment I would like to apologize to the two women who I basically decapitated with my blue disc of death. It was my first lime. I think I also inadvertently killed a squirrel. T h e little guy limped a w a y so fast a f t e r I hit h i m , I couldn't see if he was alright. No one ever forgets their first time, and I w o n ' t be any different. 1 shot something like 50 over par (I stopped counting after the second hole). My round was almost cut short as well when one of those lawn mowing automobiles about shredded the poor Frisbee into nothing. But I figured if the C o s m o s can keep playing, so can I. The sport that has captured Hope by storm every year has a sort of addicting flavor to it. Once you start you can't stop. No matter how many times I lost the darn thing in the bushes, or how many times I would whip the thing, only to have it roll back to my feet, I became excited at every

hole. Wind velocity, angles, and rough became vital. Let Tiger Woods take me on. Let him weave his way around DeWitt, with a Nike disc. Let him try his long driving on each of the holes. I am Frisbee golf. I now know my calling. Each night while everyone is asleep in their residence halls, I will be prodding the course, learning every nook and cranny (as soon as my arm heals; I threw it out on the second to last hole. Ah. the danger of sports). Every time I ' m not out there, someone else is, looking to beat me. Perhaps a traveling team will be made and we can play against the stars of Miami and San Diego. S u r e the sun and t e m p e r a t u r e s make it a Frisbee heaven, but let's see them wrap that disc around a tree in the Michigan winter. Frisbee golf will always be a mainstay of Hope. No matter how many people get hit, or how many frisbees get lost in bushes or on roofs (hey, I only lost one), the sport is as big as T h e Pull. Glyn and myself may never become those superstar Frisbee golfe r s t h a t y o u r e a d a b o u t in "PhryzGolf Digest," but the passion has been installed and may never extinguish. Many go crazy over this disc phenomena, and now I have become one of the loyal followers.

MIKE ZIUIDEMA sports editor

If records are any indication, then Maureen Odland has had no problem adjusting to coaching at Hope College. T h e f i r s t - y e a r c o a c h ran her record to 13-0 following the team's 15-9, 15-10, 15-3 defeat of Adrian College, Thursday, Sept. 18. The victory over Adrian breaks a Hope record of 15 straight victories, which dates back to last season. Hope has also won 27 consecutive games, dropping their last one 14-16 to Walsh, Ohio at the Mt. Union College Invitational. T h e t e a m is o v e r a l l 3 9 - 2 in g a m e s played this season. The Flying Dutch is also ranked eighth in the nation among Division III teams. The Adrian win runs Hope's league record to 2-0, along with their defeat of Olivet. Despite the quick start, Odland is wary to rest on her laurels. "If anything it puts the pressure right back on," Odland said. "Any loss becomes that much more important." Thursday, the Flying Dutch had a little trouble getting started against the visiting Bulldogs. "We should have beaten the team more handily than we did." Odland said. "We seem to want a challenge rather than coming out strong at the start." Hope started on track as the team jumped to a 8-3 start. The Bulldogs then scored four straight points bef o r e a 6 - 2 run f i n i s h e d the first game. The second game seemed to res e m b l e the first, as Hope started with a 4-1 lead.

RAY from I I "I think that in the short time we've been together there's been a genuine mutual respect because, philosophically, w e ' v e meshed to a great degree, its been an easy move. There haven't really been any p r o b l e m s , j u s t stylistically we're different." Having two certified athletic trainers on staff will benefit both student-athletes and students in the athletic training education program by allowing Rodriguez and

Ray more time to work with injured athletes and to supervise and instruct student athletic trainers better. ' ' C h a n g e is tough f o r a lot of people," Rodriguez said. "There are limes when I wonder, 'Have I made the right c h o i c e ? ' When I get to spend time with my family and see the type of environment that I ' m working in, those far outweigh any little operation nuances that may arise."
