Catcalls and defamatory shouts echoed from Durfee Hall and from motorists driving past during the fifth annual Take Back the Night March. T h e shouts added to the reality of violence and hatred against women.The Hope College Women's Issues Organization sponsored the March, on Thursday, Sept. 25th, presenting a variety of voices all opposed to violence and sexual assault. Thurciay's march was part of a tradition worldwide that started in Germany in 1973. It began as a way to show that violence against women is unacceptable. More recently it has been expanded lo cover. violence against all people, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. This open view was reflected by the marchers. Some marches don't allow men lo participate, but the Hope march drew male and female students, as

wfll as Hope faculty members. The march began with keynote speaker Krislen Gray, sexual harassment policy educator and Hope psychology professor. Marchers gathered in the Pine G r o v e to v o i c e t h e of v i o l e n c e unacceplability by the status perpetuated quo. "The

status quo def e n d s itself by saying 'You get what you ask for,' and I have news for them: we w o n ' t lake it," said Gray. T h e m a r c h then p r o c e e d e d through the c a m p u s , slopping at seven different spots where abductions or assaults of Hope students have occurred. At each location, different speakers stood before the crowd and offered a variety of different ideas. Mary L u c a s ( ' 9 8 ) , C A A R E educator, stood in the Van Zoren circle and shared the reality of violence on Hope's campus. According lo a recent survey, 7% of Hope students have been assaulted. " S t u d e n t s feel that they c a n ' l make a difference. Tonight changes m o r e M A R C H on 2

FROM THE

EDITOR...

Harassing

students

D e a r Editor, I have this liillc desk calendar in the Anchor office lhat I like lo look a! everyday - not just for ihe dale, but rather for words of inspiration about my rights as a journalist, a citizen, a human. The other day I came across a great one by Miriam Drennan of the Freedom Forum that reads, "When will the United States realize that the First Amendment does not define taste - it only defines freedom?" The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America assures every single man, woman, and child the rights to, among other things, freedom of speech, press, and religion. Those inalienable rights even apply to us here within the bubble of Hope College. It is this treasured ammendment lhat allows the Anchor lo have a venue in which students, faculty, and even community members can voice their opinions on the world around them. It is crucial lo society that anyone who wishes lo express their opinion on a subject is allowed lo do so in a civilized and formal manner. At the Anchor, the letters lo the editor section allows people lo do just lhat. Il is because of this right that we al the Anchor absolutely refuse lo edit any content of a letter that i<*nol libelous, belligerent, or uses profanity. That is the way il goes. You write il, we run il. We may not agree with what the letter says and the author of the letter may be wrong in the facts, but that is irrelevant lo the newspaper. What is said in a letter to the editor is not always in accordance lo what the

Glyn Williams newspaper believes, nor what the campus believes. It does not have to be agreed with. Taste is irrelevant to rights. I have the right to say what I w^nt, regardless of taste, however, most people choose to be tasteful in their rhetoric. If we begin lo edit for taste and judgement, we begin to censor what is said by our constituents, and thus begin to tell the readers what lo think. The domino effect will begin and censorship will reign. First I will omit the occasional letter that I find to be tasteless. Then I will begin to cut out letters that I disagree with and soon after will come the dismissal of all letters that might make the Anchor look bad. This is not only bad journalism, il is irresponsible journalism. Historian Chislopher Lasch once said, "The j o b of the press is to encourage debate, not lo supply the public with informalion." If the Anchor prints an article or a column that makes you question what you believe in, so be il. That is healthy. That is journalism. Il is not news lo say that the sun is shining because that is the normal thing that happens in society. Good news is what happens everyday. Tragic news, although painful, needs to be reported, and opinions must be expressed. And that is our j o b here al the Anchor: lo bring you all the news.

I don't know. Maybe God was punishing me for unconfessed sins. Maybe il was just an extension of my already rotten week. Il w a s bound to happen. The other night. I had the pleasure of getting to know a new member of the public safety staff. How did this all happen? Well, I decided lo venture onto the 12th street campus cut-through in front of Kollen Hall. I guess this was a mistake. Now, those people down al public safety aren't all the mean ogres we m a k e t h e m out to be. (As a former member of K-2, I had gotten to know quite a few of them intimately last year). So I was excited at this opportunity to meet someone new. When he stopped me, he asked what in the world I was doing. I then told him the truth. I had to cut through because there were loo m a n y people c r o s s i n g the middle of the street by Columbia Ave. Too many drunk people! (And don't tell me I can't say they were drunk, either!

is not Public Safety's job when I sec and hear them. I am a college student after all.) So lo avoid a yelling/throwing incident, I just avoided the mess and went through the street past Kollen Hall. The officer didn't seem to care loo much. He said that il was not a street, only a u t h o r i z e d v e h i c l e s were allowed to travel on it, and there were signs at the entrances clearly indicating this. Yes, there are such signs.' H o w e v e r , I) T h o s e signs a r e about as big as a matchbox and you can't possibly read them from your car. And, 2)Il was extremely dark outside. How am I going to see an unlit sign in the dark? With this in m i n d , the o f f i c e r could have given me a warning and told me not lo do it again. Instead, he wrote me a $15 ticket for "endangering Ihe public's safely." This brought a few things to my mind. First of all, what about all the cars that go through there on a daily basis? What about the Mercedes that I a l w a y s see p a r k e d o u t s i d e of Nykerk? Are they endangering the public's safely, loo? I don't think so.

Second of all, exactly what "public" was I endangering? My friend S t e v e w h o w a s driving the rape van? No, he even waved to me as I passed by. Could it be the two squirrels prancing about? No, they were long gone into the nearest tree. How about the three Cosmos out frisbee golfing? No, they hadn't even teed off on the "Delphi Bush" hole yet. So, who exactly was I endangering here? O.K., so why did I write this letter? Will I hope to change anything with il? Not really. Did I do it to inform people how idiotic and absurd public s a f e t y has b e c o m e ? Maybe. Will people just call me a crybaby for it? W h o cares. I just fell lhat I got unfairly punished by an inconsistent staff of people with nothing better to do al the time than to harass students. It's my own fault, really. I guess I am a menace. Maybe I shoud have spent more lime thinking up a crime lo r e a l l y e n d a n g e r the p u b l i c ' s safety. Like parking in a facultyonly spot!

expresses their appreciation

Dear Friends, We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support that you have expressed lo our family in the a f t e r m a t h of B e n ' s tragic death. Your prayers, cards, gifts and notes have been a great encouragement to us. Our sorrow, while deep and painf u l , has s o m e h o w seemed m o r e bearable knowing that yoti share il

with us. After Orientation W e e k e n d in August we were excited that Ben would be part of a college c o m m u nity where God was so obviously al work. If God can use B e n ' s death to advance that work, it provides us with some measure of consolation. Based on the reports many of you have shared with us in your notes and cards, that may already be hap-

L e t t e r o f f base in its utterly D e a r Editor, My letter is being written in response to the letter sent to the Editor by Tony Bull. This letter addressed the article written by Mike Zolnierowicz. Mike was responsible for the difficult task of informing Hope College of the death of Peter Warburton. Unfortunately, the only thing that Mr. Bull's letter provided was evidence that he is in Budapest, Hungary and obviously knows nothing of Peter Warburton, nor the people who loved him. Mr. Bull stated lhat he was "utterly appalled by the callous m a n n e r in which the article was written" and lhat the "very flippant and verbose

absurd accusations

style of Mike's writing undermined the poignancy of Peter's suicide." Bull must be ignorant of the fact that Peter was a fraternity brother of Mike's, and of all the time and love which Mike look to compose the article in question. I do not believe there are means in existence to compose an article which would e x p r e s s the love which the Cosmopolitan fraternity, and many other people, had for Mr. Peter Warburton. Such a piece could neither contain all of the memories of Peter, nor fully express to the students of Hope College what a loss Peter's death was lo the world. The bottom line is lhat there is no possible way to put Peter on paper, and

e v e r y o n e w h o loved him knows that. Mike Zolnierowicz performed an unimaginably difficult task when he look il upon himself lo write that article. He gave Peter respect and dignity through his writing. An article perceived to be "devoid of feelings an emotion" was, in actuality, written with more care and devotion for Peter than ignorant eyes were able lo see. So many of us loved Peter, and I would like lo thank Mike Zolnierowicz for expressing those feelings with such eloquence.

TRYING T O R E A C H P E O P L E . B O T H TRYING

Peniely the show Gibson and company will present this Friday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. in the Knickerbocker Theater, is exactly that: a unique combination of religion, movement, acting, and philosophy.

Peniel is the name given to the spot where Jacob wrestled with the Angel of God in Genesis 32. It translates as "the face of God." Jacob's struggle at Peniel serves in Gibson's piece as a metaphor for all conflict. "We all perceive ourselves as in conflict—with ourselves, with others, and with God. Thus we all view ourselves as separate entities," Gibson explained. "My piece attempts to show that because w e all are in conflict, w e ' r e all united." This philosophy ties in elements of Zen Buddhism. Hinduism. Taoism, and Christianity. His main goal in presenting this philosophy is to teach the perception of all things as one. "I want to teach people to see themselves and others as they really are," Gibspn said. Gibson cites the Hebrew name for God, Yahweh, which loosely translates as "I am, I am." This simplicity of existence serves as a model for Gibson's piece. Gibson has been working on the text for his show for approximately fifteen months. None of it is original writing— instead, G i b s o n c o m p i l e d p a s s a g e s f r o m various sources, including the Bible and The Gnostic Gospels, to create the text. Gibson stresses, however, that the words of his piece are not the most important element. 44 The t e x t is m o r e of a • • s o u n d t r a c k to the p i e c e , " Gibson said. " T h e words are not there so you will necessarily u n d e r s t a n d or m a k e sense of their content." F ried rich Nietzsche, a German philosopher, said, " T h e more abstract the truth you w a n t to teach, the more you must seduce the senses to it." Gibson relies on this statement in his p r o d u c t i o n of Peniel.

Dan Hoag ( ' 9 8 ) has been s t u d y i n g American Buffalo, by David Mamet. for two years. And this semester, as an independent senior project, Hoag is both directing and producing the show on campus. The show opens tomorrow night in the studio theater of DeWiit. Rich in characterization and dialogue. American Buffalo attests to the fact that many people out there are ignorant as to who they really are and what they need to do to be better people.

T h e t h i n g in itself American Buffalo is about three men who basically live in a junk shop. Donny owns the joint, Bobby works for Donny, and Teach is D o n n y ' s pal. " T h e g u y s spend all their t i m e surrounded by j u n k , " Hoag said. "And when you're surrounded by junk, junk is what you and your views of others b e c o m e — meaningless and wasted." A p p r o p r i a t e l y , t h e c h a r a c t e r s "talk trash," mostly about other characters w h o never appear in the play, but also about themselves. According to Hoag. none of the men are really in touch with who they are. " T h e characters can be rated as to how detached from themselves and the world they are," Hoag said. The three men embark on an adventure in American Buffalo that highlights the inadequacies in their natures. That's all Hoag, understandably, would divulge about the plot. "I want people to be curious and come," Hoag said.
