Edwards To Speak On Sports by Martha Vander Kolk On Thursday, October 11, Phi Epsilon Kappa and the Department of Physical Education, Recreation, and Athletics are sponsoring two talks by Dr. Harry Edwards, Professor of Sociology at the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. E d w a r d s will be delivering two lectures, one at 11:00 AM entitled "Sport, Politics, and the Olympics - Where to From H e r e ? " and another at 2:00 PM on "Striving for Victory - A Sensible Approach to Sport." Both lectures will be given in Wichers Auditorium. Dr. Edwards is a prominent figure in the study of sports and how it affects the black athlete.
He " h a s done more than anyone to expose and analyze what he calls 4 the great American Myth' the media inspired illusion that pursuing a sports career can be a way out of poverty for significant number of black youth," according to Robert L. Allen in the Washington Post Book World. Edwards attended San Jose State University on an athletic scholarship, where he graduated with a B.A. in Sociology. He then went on to receive his M.A. and Ph.D. at Cornell University. During his time at Cornell, Edwards became greatly influenced by Malcolm X which led him to examine the state of black athletes in sports. He was a chief organizer of the black athletes' protest at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City. His feelings on this subject have a very
legitimate root: he was a poor black youth whose father pushed him in the direction of sports so that he could escape his present conditions. E d w a r d s has had approximately 50 articles published in a wide range of journals and has lectured at more than 500 coll e g e s a n d u n i v e r s i t i e s in America. Also in demand on many television p r o g r a m s and for newspaper interviews, he has become one of the leading spokesmen for human rights in our country. E d w a r d s is an e x c e l l e n t speaker with a great deal to sayabout the condition of sports in America. Everyone is invited to attend both the 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM lectures. He will also be speaking on similar topics October 12 at Calvin College.
Dr. Harry Edwards will be speaking on sports this Thursday.

Pianist Highlights GPS No. 2 by John VanWarren Internationally acclaimed pianist Alicia do Larrocha will join the Grand Rapids Symphony in presenting a concert Thursday, October 11 at 8 PM in Dimnent as the second event of the Hope Great P e r f o r m a n c e Series. -Tickets will be available at the door for $3 for students. They may also be purchased in advance in the College Relations Otfice, second floor of DeWitt. The Grand Rapids Symphony, under the direction of Semyon Bychkov, is returning to the Hope series for the second season. They will return for other concerts J a n u a r y 17 and April 11. The Spanish pianist Alicia de L a r r o c h a , whose f a m e h a s skyrocketed throughout the
world, is one of this century's titans of the keyboard. She m a d e here public debut early in 1929, and embarked on a c a r e e r which has become in recent years one of fanatical devotion from concertgoers throughout the world. Critics have lavished upon this petite, smiling virtuosa the most extraordinary adjectives. "...Not so much an audience for the Spanish pianist as a congregation. one that has grown steadily in devotion over the last 15 years," wrote Donal Henahan of The New York Times. After another recent recital. The NY Times said: "She is one of the most finished pianists before the public. Prominent in her arsenal are the three T's of Pianism Technique, Tone and Taste. Those little hands of hers gobble up the keyboard in any configurations.*"
The record world in general seems to agree, as Miss de Larrocha was recently awarded a G r a m m y by the recording industry for the second year in a row. Having distinguished himself as one of the most exciting young conductors in America, Semyon Bychkov was n a m e d Music Director of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra beginning in 1985. Filling in on a very short notice this past F e b r u a r y for Bernard Haitink, he received s t a n d i n g o v a t i o n s and widespread acclaim in the European press for his conducting of an all French p r o g r a m at a concert of Holland's famed Concertgebouw. Y o u n g a n d old p e r f o r m together this Thursday in the second event of the Great Performance Series.

Bloom County by Jazz VanKlompen One of the most noticable changes in the Anchor this y e a r is the addition of a nationally syndicated cartoon strip, namely "Bloom County." But just where did it come from and what is going on in it? Let's find out... Berke Breathed ( r h y m e s with " m e t h o d " and, yes, that Is his real name) is the m a n behind the cartoon. Born In 1957, Breathed attended the University of T e x a s where he drew "The Academla Waltz" cartoon strip for The Dally T e x a n , t h e c a m p u s newspaper. "Bloom County" can best b e . described as "Doonesbury" with a large dose of Dr. Seuss. While "Bloom" is a social c o m m e n t a r y strip a la "Doonesbury," Breathed injects a wild sense of craziness into it which distinctly sets it apart from all other strips on the market. Most of this craziness comes from the characters who inhabit the strip. And, to best understand what is going on, each of these characters must be understood. Let's start with everyone's favorite penguin: Opus. Over the few years the strip has been in existance, Opus has become the heart and soul of ''Bloom County." He appears wherever and whenever, interjecting his slightly off-center thoughts and ideas into the situation. In his short career. Opus has, among other things, gone to court to fight for the teaching of "penguin evolution," led a revolt against Kentucky Fried Chicken for "serving... (his) ...friends as food," starred as " E . P . the E x t r a Terrestrial Penguin," gone in search of his mother, and outdone "Sting and the boys" at a rock concert. Currently Opus is the vice-presidential candidate for the . Meadow P a r t y and spends most of his time campaigning.
Who's Who and What's What
Bill the Cat heads the Meadow Party ticket as their nominee for president. Bill h a s led an interesting life, reaching the pinnacle of success, dying, and then being brought back to life. Mile Is the activist of the strip both In his guise a s ace reporter and Meadow P a r t y campaign manager. He is a true entrepreneur who likes to stick it to anybody who does not agree with his slightly liberal viewpoints, especially Steve Dallas.
Steve Dallas is a "stud-intraining;" a real m a n who hasn't q u i t e a c h i e v e d the " r e a l " although he thinks he has. Steve is an old fraternity boy who hasn't grown up yet. B l n k l e y Is a typical, insecure, little kid. His "closet of anxieties" (starring none other than
father who is quite hopeful that his son will grow up and become a real man. Oliver is the little computer pirate and super-genius of the strip. With his computer Oliver
