Proposal met by skepticism T h e proposal to revise the general college requirements was met by skepticism f r o m several faculty members in hearings last week on the bill. The hearings were the first half of a series of four sessions t o discuss the proposal and answer student and faculty questions. Testimony continues this week. AT TUESDAY S DISCUSSION a meager 17 faculty members and 13 students were apparently dissatisfied with the lack of specific meaning in a phrase of the document that refers to a "Christian t r a d i t i o n " at t h e college. The s t a t e m e n t is part of an over view ol the proposal's philosophic basis for t r e a t m e n t of the curriculum. Hearings Thursday dealing with a block course, " i n t r o d u c t i o n t o Liberal Studies." saw f u r t h e r opposition as several faculty members stated ithey wanted more specifics about the course than are contained in the proposal before making any j u d g m e n t . The r e port of the ad hoc c o m m i t t e e t o revise the requirements did not outline in detail the proposed course. " T h e r e must be a better way to introduce people to the ideas of this course. Before the course has my vote I must see the implem e n t a t i o n , " said Earl Curry, assistant professor of history. CHAIRMAN O F T H E English department John Hollenbach added, " T h e r e are many faculty members who would want t o block this course, so we should have a good idea of what the course is." Students participating in the discussion Thursday seemed more enthusiastic a b o u t the proposal. Many students noted that the new curriculum plan would give them greater selectivity in choosing other courses. An area of faculty concern was the formation of the Introduction to Liberal Studies d e p a r t m e n t , which would be separate from any other d e p a r t m e n t . This department would consist of three faculty members and one director or chairman. Faculty members said Thursday that the four d e p a r t m e n t
members would want to stress material f r o m their own specialty and skim over o t h e r important objectives and areas of study of the liberal studies course. ELIZABETH REEDY, assistant professor of English and a member of the c o m m i t t e e that sponsored the hearings, said, "People would agree t o work together for the sole objectives of the program and not one man's special area." At least some faculty members say opposition to the proposal is mounting before the ad hoc committee to revise the requirements meets at the end of the week t o revise and rewrite the proposal. ONE FACULTY MEMBER c o m m e n t e d after the hearings, " T h e faculty is not in the mood the make a significant change in the curriculum at this t i m e . " He said there was a general feeling among the faculty that things would " q u i e t d o w n " this year. He claimed that the loss of the college president over the summer, the reform in chapel attendance regulations and major changes in the social policy provided an a t m o s p h e r e in which " t h e faculty is not ready to sit down and discuss a reform in the college r e q u i r e m e n t s .

Geneva Retreat plans postponed until N o v e m b e r Plans did not materialize in time to create the 1970 Geneva Retreat, scheduled for Oct. 9-11. The retreat was postponed by the Student Church organizers one week before it was supposed to occur. A new date in November will be set for the event. Although it may not ~be held at Camp Geneva, organizers hope that the postponed retreat will be similar to their original plans. The unavailability of several persons w h o were to have been speakers and discussion group leaders was the primary reason the retreat was postponed.
NY Brass Society to open Performance Series Friday The 1970-71 Hope College Great Performance Series will open Friday when the New York Brass Society presents a concert of chamber music at 8 : 1 5 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel. Sponsored by the Cultural Affairs Committee, the concert is the first of six events scheduled for the Great Performance Series this year. The Society has performed throughout the United States and is the official brass ensemble of the Lincoln Center F o u n d a t i o n , a position it has held since 1967.
Formed in 1966, the Society is still comprised of its original members, French hornist David Jolley, tenor trombonist Garrett List, bass trombonist David Taylor and trumpeters Ronald Romm and Robert Sirinek. In addition to the concert, the .group will present a lecture demonstration for Hope music students Friday a f t e r n o o n and will also visit area high schools giving lecture demonstrations. Admission t o the concert is free for Hope students and faculty with ID cards.

The hearings today and Wednesay may prove to be the crucial ones for observers concerned with the fate of the bill. Today at 4 p.m. in Wichers Auditorium a hearing will center on " t h e divisional c u r r i c u l u m , " a plan under which students would not be required to take specific courses, but could choose classes to fulfill a more general requirement of 12 hours in each of three divisions: the social sciences, the humanities and the natural sciences. Wednesday's hearing will discuss the " c o n t r a c t c u r r i c u l u m " proposal. Under this o p t i o n , students could c o m p l e t e academic work through a wide variety of programs and plan their own course work by consulting a faculty advisor and receiving his approval. Students would agree to perform a certain a m o u n t of work, faculty members would evaluate it, and the student would then receive his degree.

Frosh class sets new record Hope College continues t o grow as the class of 1974 set a new record high of 605 students, bringing the total enrollment to 2,056. Of the 605 freshmen, 3 0 0 are men and 305 are women. In recent years, the women have held the d o m i n a n t share of freshmen classes. Last year's frosh class had a ratio of 55 women for every 45 men. D I R E C T O R O F Admissions Charles Curry said the more equal numbers this year are a result of "a fairly conspicuous e f f o r t on the part of the admissions staff to balance the ratio as each year progresses. We would like to retain an even n u m b e r of men and women for each class." Last year, almost half of the student population held membership in the R e f o r m e d Church in America. This year's total remains approximately the same according to Registrar Jon Huiskens, though the statistical report does not give exact figures. There is still n o conscious e f f o r t to recruit more members f r o m this church than any others. Curry said. THE CLASS O F 1974 contains 17 Presidential Scholars, eight women and nine men. This n u m b e r is still one above the average of 16. Presidential Scholars are s t u d e n t s designated by the Admissions Committee for an o u t s t a n d i n g high school record. This year's student-faculty ratio is a b o u t 15:1. T h e studentfaculty ratio is one way in which colleges are evaluated, but it is not indicative of actual class size. T h e figure is derived by dividing the total student enrollment ( 2 , 0 5 6 ) by the total n u m b e r of full-time faculty (139). Most i n t r o d u c t o r y classes have far more s t u d e n t s than the ratio suggests. Introduction to Liberal Studies, for ex-
ample, contains more than 135 students in each section. LAST YEAR F O R M E R President Calvin A. VanderWerf initiated a new c o m m i t t e e designed for the purpose of dealing with ethnic problems. No new information concerning ethnic enrollment can be disclosed until after that group, the Minority Student Education C o m m i t t e e , has assembled next week. Jim Stills, acting President of the Black Coalition said that there is a b o u t the same percentage of blacks on campus this year as there has been in recent years. He added that the new c o m m i t t e e has not informed him
of any exact figures, nor has it discussed any problems with him. Neither Curry nor Huiskens would disclose any information on black enrollment. A breakdown of s t u d e n t enrollment by classes shows the freshmen class is the largest with 605 students. There are 533 sophomores, 516 juniors and 282 seniors. There are also 96 parttime s t u d e n t s and 69 special students. Exact figures pertaining to the statistical background of each student are presently being compiled by the Data Processing Center.
Hope,U of Detroit given grant for environmental seminar Hope College and the University of Detroit have been jointly awarded a grant f r o m the Association of I n d e p e n d e n t Colleges and Universities of Michigan for establishing a two week seminar in June on the topic, " T h e Environmental Crisis." The w o r k s h o p v/ill be conducted for faculty members f r o m the 24 private colleges and universities in Michigan, and will be funded by t h e Kellogg Foundation through its Faculty Development program. The seminar will be divided into t w o phases. The first will be c o n d u c t e d in Detroit, where it will center u p o n an analysis of t h e ecological problems f o u n d in o n e of the Detroit parks. Analysis will center on its influence u p o n social, economic and cultural aspects of the c o m m u n i t y . The program will a t t e m p t to define problems, t o establish philosophic

Our man in Belgrade; home thoughts from abroad editor.s Note: This week's anchor essay is written by senior English major Garrett degraff, who is studying this year in Novi Sad, Yugoslavia. He was one of hundreds of observers when President Richard Nixon visited that country two weeks ago, and here he takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the President's reception. The events he recounts are true, though embellished at times with excessive grief. by Garrett DeGraff I watched the big black Mercedes drive up. Even before it had stopped ! could recognize him through the tinted glass. Me carefully climbed out of the car to avoid messing his immaculately combed hair. Immediately he was
surrounded by a crowd of people from within the roped-off area. I recognized several of them, for I had seen their faces on television. The others were advisors, I surmised'; the people who always stay behind the scenes but are nonetheless the real newsmakers. This was the biggest thrill of the day. There he was, standing on the broad Belgrade street, Walter Cronkite. 1 knew the motorcade couldn't be far behind. ABOUT THAT TIME I noticed a news team behind me; there was a soundman, a cameraman and the reporter. I moved closer to see where they were from. It turned out they were from West Germany. I heard the reporter ask a question in Serbo-Croatian. 1 couldn't understand what he said, but neither could the Yugoslavs.

Then he said, " D o e s anyone-speak English?" With bunny-like quickness 1 jumped at my o p p o r t u n i t y . "I do," 1 said decisively. Then he asked me, " H o w old is President T i t o ? " Those Germans • truly have a knack for asking questions which cut to the marrow. 4kl don't know, sir," f responded. lie asked me il I would say that in Serbo-Croatian for filming. " I ' m an American," I said to avoid misleading him. " T h a t ' s too bad. We're having trouble getting people to say anything," he said glumly as he walked away in pursuit of news. SINCE THE MOTORCADE was not due for another 15 minutes, I thought I would try to see what there was to see. Noticing that a secret service man on the roof of the Hotel Balkan was staring through his binoculars at something, I moved in the direction he was looking. Finally 1 spotted two shabbily dressed y o u t h s talking with a grey-clad policeman. From a distance 1 could see them making obscene gestures with their hands and trying to get the policeman t o make them, too. Obviously the y o u t h s were trying to induce the policeman to make those perfidious signs at the President of the United States of America! What joy 1 knew can only be known by those who seek to improve international relations by cultural assimilation. Their actions were positively American. IT WAS TOO MUCH for me to take when 1 saw them point to the policeman's gun and p a n t o m i m e an assasination. " O h , this is splend i d , " . 1 thought. As I pressed forward through the milling throng of thousands, I thought that together we could burn a couple of the small flags the police were handing out. "I could burn a Yugoslavian flag and they could burn an American flag. That would be a fitting symbolic gesture," I mused.

GARRETT DEGRAFF But lo, my visions of international reconciliation were dashed as I came nearer. They were not Yugoslavs, they were Americans. After an exchange of "Hello's" and "Where you f r o m ' s , " 1 moved on. My grief cried for solitude. I WALKED F U R T H E R d own the street in a state of utter depression. I would wait, I decided then, for the motorcade. Surely there would be one dissident, alienated, anti-Nixon Slav protester in the crowd. But when the motorcade came there was absolutely nothing but clapping and flag-waving. There were no attempts to break through the police lines, no " O n e , two, three, fours, we d o n ' t want y o u r blanking wars." There was nothing. I was in utter despair. As an antidote to my mental misery, 1 decided to cash a travellers' check. If no one else was going to act American, at least I would. When 1 got the money 1 noticed the picture of the happy Yugoslav worker on the ten dinar

note. In bitter meter I said to myself, "0 Happy Yugoslav worker, shCwel in hand, May the Turks recapture your unAmerican land." AND THEN I heard what sounded like Angels' voices. Oh yes, yes indeed, it was a demonstration, a chanting, sign-carrying traffic-disrupting, anti-Nixon pig! stomper. My spirits.soared like a lark! As I put the dinars securely in my wallet and tucked my passport in a safe pocket, I saw them pass on the street outside. Some were dressed in red and white striped costumes, including striped caps. "What imagination," I thought, " t h e y have made imitation prison u n i f o r m s , with the American flag!" As I moved toward the door I could picture their heroic struggle with the police to get to the d o w n t o w n area. BY THE TIME 1 reached the street they had passed out of sight. 1 ran to catch them and my feet barely touched earth; I was carried by their spirit. Finally I caught them. They had stopped in front of an official-looking building. Someone was leading a chant. 1 couldn't understand what they were saying, but 1 was sure it was the Yugoslav equivalent of "one, two, three, four, e t c . " My ecstasy must have been evident for soon an American came up to me and asked me if I was an American. 1 told him I was, and noted what a thrilling sight the demonstration was. " D o you know what this is?" he asked. I told him it was an anti-Nixon demonstration. He smiled a smile of superior knowledge, and said (gently, for he could see my emotions), "This is a pep rally for a local soccer game." I WON'T TRY to explain how 1 felt; in fact, I'm not at all sure that words could suffice. At this point I decided to leave Belgrade; my faith in humankind had been sufficiently destroyed. But it has been said that faith springs eternal from the human heart, and so such faith sprang from mine when I heard the fresh laughter of a young girl resounding f r o m a streetside sweet shop. I RESOLVED to enter and converse with her, and thus to have her buoy my flagging spirits as only the fair sex can. She was a fair lass, and congenial. After a few minutes of casual conversation she told me that she had missed the m o t o r c a d e because she had been in school. " Y o u were lucky," 1 said, "for it was very sad." She then said perversely and illogically, "Nixon, good m a n . " I explained all about Vietnam, Cambodia, Kent State, military budgets, etc. She agreed that all the things I mentioned were bad, but said again, "Nixon, good man. America good." I could not reply, for I was convulsed with sobs. AS I WRITE this 1 cannot but think that there is little hope. Yugoslavs see American westerns and war movies, they read American magazines in American reading rooms that are full of pictures of students throwing bricks and policemen throwing tear gas. Despite all this educational exposure, American dissent is unknown to their real life. Even at the universities there is nothing but the calm of normal academic life. It is sad, so very sad. If these pages are difficult to read, it is only because as I write them memories bring back tears, bitterer than most.

Broken tube sets back accelerator schedule by Ken Janda Hope College's particle accelerator program has been set back several weeks by a broken vacuum tube. Other than the installation of the tube, the two million electron-volt machine is almost ready for use. T H E VACUUM TUBE is d major c o m p o n e n t of the machine. When in use, the S5,000 part will have 4 0 0 p o u n d s per square inch of pressure on the outside while maintaining a pressure one billion times smaller than atmospheric pressure on the inside. The part is also a huge resistor which must be able t o maintain the two million volt potential at one end while grounded on the other end. Because of its laminated construction, however, the tube is extremely sensitive to changes of t e m p e r a t u r e and humidity. It was apparently cracked before it arrived at Hope last spring, but the break was not discovered until the
end of August when the tube was taken f r o m its special packing container to be put in the machine. Means of fixing or replacing the tube are still being investigated by the members of the physics d e p a r t m e n t . DR; JAMES TOEVS, assistant professor of physics, said that once the vacuum tube is ready to put into the machine it will be only a matter of days until the machine could be turned on. He and Dr. Richard Brockmeier, associate professor of physics, described some of the work currently being done to prepare experiments for use with the machine. A three inch by two inch by one-eighth inch thick single quartz crystal has successfully been bent to be used in a spectrometer to analyze the x-rays which will result when the electron beam strikes a target. O N E L A R G E MAGNET has been built this summer to bend
the beam toward the target area and a 90-degree bending magnet has been promised to Hope by the University of Kentucky. This magnet is important in that it will allow the energy of a proton beam to be very accurately measured and controlled. Since faster particles require more of a magnetic field to turn the corner the exact energy of any particle bent t o any angle can easily be calculated. The other major item of interest which is being built is a cement table on which an experimental apparatus can be placed. The table must be cement because it must keep several pieces of e q u i p m e n t , which will be located up to six feet apart, completely vibration-free with respect to one another. A steel 1 beam could not be made that would be stable enough. Even though the table has been specially designed to include much hollow space, it will weigh between 2,000 and 3,000 pounds. Toevs is not sure when the machine will be ready for use, but he made it obvious that work has not stopped yet. The physicists still have quite a lot to accomplish before they will be ready for the machine.
WHAT NEXT?—Dr. J a m e s Toevs and Dr. J a m e s Seeser look over Hope's particle accelerator, trying to find ways to repair or replace a $5,000 part broken in shipment.

With the death of many of the college's most cherished and venerable traditions, including the wearing of beanies and the kangaroo court, many wondered if perhaps the same fate had befallen the annual, the Milestone.

To the fraternities: To: The " M e n " of Cosmopolitan
Upon arriving at Hope College on Sept. 14, I discovered that Kollen Hall was full. Having no place else to put me. Mr. VanderWel put me here in Cosmo House. Very soon after arriving, I discovered something about the "rules" around here. While playing pool alone in the basement, I was abruptly informed by some of your members that the basement was off limits to independents. Obstinately, the individuals refused to explain why such was the case. (I later discovered that last year you had some trouble with independents abusing your furniture, and had the rule put into effect this year to thwart abusive treatment by non-members.) I have mentioned something of the coarseness with which I was greeted the first time I came in contact with some Cosmos. Having nothing else to judge by, I came to the hasty conclusion that Cosmos were not very desirable creatures to be around. Very soon thereafter, however, I realized that my first impression might very well be an erroneous one. Calling to bear what objectivity I possess, I even conceded to myself that I probably was wrong. It's natural for a person to want to be accepted by the persons with whom he lives. I admit that foremost in my mind at this point was the goal of living at peace with you people. I figured that ultimately I would like to become a Cosmo myself; being friends with present members would certainly not have hurt my chances of getting in. A couple of weeks ago, I got wind of your plans to re-finish your basement. This seemed to be an excellent chance for me to demonstrate beyond question my desire to become a loyal Cosmo. On repeated occasions, I told various members of your exclusive club that you could count on my help, if you wanted it, during the course of the basement project.
on television. I asked him what you had decided about my offers at your meeting this week. He replied that he wasn't sure; you hadn't made a concrete decision yet. He left. I stayed, not having been ordered to leave. Then a mob of other Cosmos came down. To my surprise, I was accosted vehemently. It was explained, in colorful terms, that I was never again to set foot within the confines of that sacred place; to be caught doing so would mean that I would be subject to getting the hell beat out of me. Thus having achieved a purer understanding of the advanced state of civilization in Cosmopolitan Fraternity, I left. I came to college with the impression that fraternity members were men of above-average intelligence and maturity. My experience with you has demonstrated to me once again how painful it can be to lose one's naivety. (Name witheld upon request)
Sir: Obviously there has been a big misunderstanding not only on your part but also our part concerning your gripes expressed in your letter to the Men of Cosmopolitan. Let me try to set things straight. First of all, just the fact that independents live in with active members of a frat is a basis for problems. However, there need not be any problems if we can reach an understanding with each other. There are "rules" for Indies in the house to abide by; the basement is off limits to all Indies unless invited down by an active frat member. As I speak for all the Cosmos, we would like to apologize for the misunderstanding and the resulting verbal abuse that you received. But believe me, you weren't the first Indy to receive this sort of treatment and probably w o n ' t be the last. So don't get all up in the air about this, as it is a common thing for Indies living in a frat This, I thought, was a turning point. house to have a few hard feelings now and I was allowed downstairs, with Cosmos then. Let's try to forget all the unpleasantries present. They left occasionally, leaving me alone to shoot some pool. Things "prog- that have taken place so far. We will leave ressed" to the stage where I was playing you alone if you will abide by the house pool alone; Cosmos came and went, yet rules and leave us alone. We would apprenobody told me to leave. I was happy; I ciate your cooperation. Thank you. was " i n " at last. This brings us up to the present date. The other night, I was alone playing pool. (Name withheld upon request) Your President came down to see what was Cosmopolitan Fraternity (The above letters were edited because of space limitations.)
The correspondence reproduced above is a sad example of the condition of fraternities at Hope College. Trapped by the feeling that fraternities as a way of campus life may be dying out, yet sparked by the traditional feeling of "brotherhood" and a subconscious attitude of superiority, Greeks are looking for new ways to assert their role. And it would appear that the easiest way to assert that role is through hatred and prejudice. The author of the letter, a freshman, has assured the anchor that he has received numerous apologies for his ill-treatment and has no desire to add new flames to the fire. A t the same time, it is valuable to point out that the conditions described in the letter are not unique characteristics of any one fraternityTo some degree or another they exist in each fraternity. There are two statements in the letter from the Cosmopolitans that are especially sad commentaries. The Cosmo writer states that when independents and fraternity men live together, there is bound to be friction. That this should be so is outrageous. If labels would cease to be so important to these people with so little humanity, perhaps fraternity members would begin to see that they are first individuals with personalities and capable of interacting with other individuals. Only when they fulfill that role should they consider joining a fraternity. Blatant
prejudice against independents is senseless and immature. Similarly, acts and stat ements that reflect the hatred between the fraternities are all too commonplace. The second statement is the very antithesis of the idea of Hope College: "...you leave us alone and we'll leave you alone." A college simply cannot succeed if it operates on that premise. We are here to learn from each other, to share each other's experiences and enjoy each other's company. Isolationism is what has built an artificial barrier between the fraternity-sorority groups and the rest of the campus. The separation is now both physical and in spirit. Two steps must be taken to remedy this lack of respect for one another. First, fraternities must be moved out of their present housing units at the end of the current semester. The separate "houses" only serve to encourage unhealthy isolation and reinforce undesireable values. Cottage-style housing that allows only a limited number of members to live together, yet that provides a common meeting place for all members, could be much more beneficial to the Greeks and the campus. If the fraternities must call something "theirs," let it be a cottage. The proposals that would provide such facilities must be written today if they are to become reality tomorrow. Second, we must all begin NOW to realize that we DO live together, fraternity members, sorority members and independents.

There was a time when a candidate appeared on the screen and made a one-minute pitch f o r y o u r vote. But all this has gone by the boards, and n o w , thanks to the great creative brains of our advertising media, the new approach is to tell the audience what a miserable S.O.B. the candidate's o p p o n e n t is.
"We've been working on t h a t , " the copywriter said. "We have some stock footage of a GI platoon attacking Hill 2,331. Then we hear S y m p h o n y ' s voice saying 'Vietnam was a big mistake,' and the voice-over says 'Tell it to C o m p a n y D.' " The campaign manager was ecstatic. "Beautiful. You have anything on the economy?"

Gliveros' music: an attempt at criticism Editor's Note: This week's anchor review is written by senior philosophy major Drew Hinderer. He reviews the concert of electronic music performed by Pauline Oliveros Tuesday night in Dimnent Memorial Chapel. by Drew Hinderer Electronic music, by its very character, is hard to criticize. Where, for example, a reviewer might criticize the performance of a Bartok string quartet on the grounds that the musicians actually lacked t h e musical competence t o interpretively follow the instructions of the composer (the notation), he can hardly level the same criticism at a piece like "Sweet Alice," in which the interest of the piece depends on the imperfect c o m p e t e n c e of the performing musicians as they a t t e m p t to match t o n e s and timbres to each other. AND T H E R E IS another dimension to this difficulty of criticism. Linked in the minds of most with the term "electronic music"' are o t h e r connotations, like " e x p e r i m e n t a l " and " a v a n t e garde", which tend to be interpreted as c o m m e n d i n g words. Electronic music, because it is so often associated with terms like these, is assumed to have special value simply because it is new. In this light, criticism becomes irrelevant. People w h o think this way are doing a grave disservice to electronic music. By regarding electronic music as a freak species, they are ignoring the fact that there is already a tradition of electronic and experimental music, and t h a t the tradition has every intention of being an ongoing area of composition. AND LIKE EXPERIMENTAL anything-else, some electronic music simply will not have the necessary characteristics for prompting f u r t h e r experimentation and interest. Criticism, then, to the extent that it can identify
some of those characteristics that make for an on-going musical tradition, is centrally important. For most of us the only useful criterion for judging the merits of a given performance of electronic and experimental music will have t o be simple interest: the question we need to ask about the pieces given in performance by Pauline Oliveros and the o t h e r performers Tuesday is " H o w well did such and such a piece stimulate and maintain my interest?" Naturally the answer to this question will vary with the reviewer, but the validity of any criticism must finally depend on he reasons one gives for his criticisms. The first event on the program, the "Sonic E n v i r o n m e n t " failed to excite my interest. The environment concept itself directs attention not only to what is intentionally performed but also to what else is going on during the environment-performance timespace. In this case, attention would have to include an awareness of the sounds of the audience (loud talking, coughing, the creaking of wooden pews), the visual sensations (including those highlighted by the moving light-beams and whatever other objects anyone might notice) and so on. SINCE THE VARIATIONS in the tape and synthesizer patch were slight, attention to these other elements came to interfere with a t t e n t i o n to the tape. Since I was unable to focus my attention as intently as the music-experience seemed to require, I found the event irritating at first, and, as it wore on, boring. By contrast, I found " O n e S o u n d " much more enjoyable. Though the form of the music was very simple, the harmonic interplay between the individual players and their instruments built up expectancies and even suspense. BUT "SWEET A L I C E " was a return to the problem of t o o little variation for sustained- interest. Since what we were primarily
Cal. mental patients show poetic ability (AP) When Elizabeth Morin started teaching her latest poetry writing class she "felt fear and trembling." MRS. MORIN, A widow, was then 80 years old and her 22 students were male mental patients c o m m i t t e d to the maximum security ward of Patton State Hospital for crimes of violence. Now, 18 m o n t h s later, tiny, white-haired - Mrs. Morin is proudly showing a book of poems written by her students. Poetry allows mental patients to communicate with themselves as well as others, she told the San Diego Mental Health Association at a recent meeting to h o n o r her work. " I T S A V E R Y R A R E privilege that Mrs. Morin was allowed to teach in the maximum security w a r d , " said Wayne Moore, executive director of the association. "Only men were supposed t o be there." Then he noted that Mrs. Morin had taught f o r 35 years at Madame Tingley's Theosophical Society School here . . . that she
had been going to Patton for several years to teach creative writing . . . that she spends five hours a week traveling there as an unpaid volunteer. FOR MRS. MORIN, however, the big m o m e n t at her testimonial obviously came when Lo Verne Brown read some of the men's poetry aloud. One person wrote: " R e a c h i n g out for the most f o r my fellow men, and knowing what lies within, 1 enjoy the inner beauty that illuminates all mankind." IN A POEM TITLED " Y o u and Me," another prisoner told of freedom outside his bars: "When the wind blows by the sea, whistling through shells by you "ind me, time seems to stop from now til then, and life is worth living over again." A m e m b e r of the National Penw o m e n ' s Club, Lo Verne Brown, concluded the poetry reading by saying: " I n her classes, Mrs. Morin holds the door open and lets the sunshine i n . "
hearing was a series of texture and timbre changes rather than pitch or amplitude alterations, I very quickly began to hope for at least some reference points of large variation to restore my awareness of depth. These, however, were not forthcoming. I would also place " T o Valerie Solanis And Marilyn Monroe In Recognition of Their Desperation in this category. Textural changes and in this case amplitudinal modifications are interesting and perhaps even comprehensible only within a framework of reference points. Without large and striking variations, I quickly loose the careful ear necessary for an awareness of what's going on in the music itself.
amounts to attending the premier performance of a newly released record: there is no real possibility for spontaneous musical activity. "Changes" is a misnomer. "Responses" might be closer to the actual fact. With everyone who managed to be uninhibited enough t o add his sounds to the general bellow that was going on around him trying t o out-howl his neighbor, I was hard-pressed to notice much of musical significance. And at sound levels HWe those achieved in "Changes" I seriously doubt that anyone could detect much by way of texture alteration or sound content.

EACH O F THESE WORKS suffered f r o m excessive length; both sounded like t w o minute musical ideas being padded into 15 minute performances. "Bye Bye Butterfly" was, I think, what most people expected to hear at the concert. It was, while not very difficult technically, a good exposition of some of the musical sounds the Buchla system can produce, assembled into a combination that held itself together with intense coherence and continuity.
DREW HINDERER BUT THE FACT THAT it was a pre-taped piece illustrates some of the technical problems of the Buchla equipment: live performance on the Buchla is next to impossible simply because of the unwieldiness of the equipment, and complex textures have to be built up, one level at a time. Hearing such a piece in concert
T H E R E REMAINS the matter of "Arrangement". One of the characteristics of much of contemporary music is its eagerness to extend itself f r o m what we might normally think of as a concert to a more broadly conceived experience revolving around sonl'e central musical idea. I will not a t t e m p t to discuss the symbolic content included with the action of the play, though it was readily obvious that the string quartet was not the point of the event. It was, I suppose, f u n n y , mostly because of the people involved. But whether one could really call it a musical experience seems d o u b t f u l to me.
Mastering the draft by John Striker end Andrew Shapiro Editor's Note; The anchor is cooperating w i t h the Holland Draft Information Center in syndicating "Mastering the Draft," a column that deals w i t h recent court decisions and draft law changes. It is written by t w o draft lawyers, and will appear in this space each week. As Dec. 31 approaches, students across the country must decide upon their final and most important play in the Lottery " n u m b e r s game." STUDENTS WITH " l o w " Lottery numbers know only too well they must remain deferred through Dec. 31 or face "Greetings." They will choose to request the II-S student deferment in September. A year f r o m now they may take their chances, hoping for a change in draft calls, the law, the war or their health. A student with a " h i g h " Lottery n u m b e r will want t o put his year of draft vulnerability behind him. T o do so, (1) he must be in class 1-A, I-A-0 ( n o n c o m b a t a n t C O . ) , or 1-0 (civilian work C.O.) on Dec. 31; and his Lottery number must n o t have been reached by that date. If the s t u d e n t meets both these qualifications on Dec. 31, he will descend f r o m the 1970 "first priority" group t o the 1971 "second priority" group on New Year's Day. For all practical purposes, this descent assures virtual immunity f r o m induction. ASSUMING THE student with the " h i g h " Lottery n u m b e r is not going C O . , he will have to seek a I-A this fall. In order t o do so, he must not request the II-S defer-
ment. According to the law, a local board should not place a student in class II-S unless h e ^ a s requested the deferment. This rule applies regardless of whether the student meets all the other requirements for a II-S. A college cannot legally request the deferment for a student. Furthermore, a II-S request for a prior academic year cannot be construed as a II-S request for the current year. STUDENTS WITH Lottery numbers in the " m i d d l e " would appear to be in a real quandary. They cannot predict with certainty whether they will be called. Should they take a chance, not request a II-S, and hope their Lottery numbers prove safe? The lure of "second priority" next year is great. Or should students in the " m i d d l e " opt for security, request a II-S, retain it through Dec. 31, and face "first priority" again next year? Security is also tempting, but it may cause bitter disillusionment when the student in class II-S on Dec. 31 discovers that his number was not reached, and he would have made it. THE DREAM OF students in the " m i d d l e " would be t o wait until Dec. 31 before deciding whether or not to be deferred on Dec. 31. The I-S(C) deferment is a dream c o m e true. The I-S(C) deferment is available to any fulltime college student who, while satisfactorily pursuing his studies, receives an induction order. If the student has never held an I-S(C) d e f e r m e n t and does not have a baccalaureate degree, he is entitled to have his
induction order cancelled. He qualifies for class I-S(C), where he must be kept until the end of the 12-month academic year. CONSIDER THE utility of the I-S(C) deferment: Suppose a student has Lottery n u m b e r 190. He is unsure whether it will be reached. Nevertheless, he does not request a II-S and remains I-A through the fall semester. Unfortunately, before December 31, the student loses his gamble. Lottery n u m b e r 190 is reached, and the student receives an induction order. The student immediately requests an I-S(C) deferment, proving to his board that he actually was a full-time student, making satisfactory progress, when he got his order. THE ORDER WILL be cancelled - not merely postponed and the student will have to play the Lottery all over next year. However, he will have t o play without one of his favorite gambits, since the I-S(C) is available only once. Resort to the I-S(C) provides a convenient way t o hedge on the I-A bet. However, there are two potential pitfalls: First, the board may classify the student II-S even though he makes no request. Second, assuming the student gets an I-S(C), his tactics may be considered a delay. Consequently, when his deferments run out, he may be immediately ordered to report, despite the fact that his number has not yet been reached in the year he becomes I-A. A safe path across these pitfalls will be described in the next column. C o p y r i g h t 1970 b y J o h n S t r i k e r and Andrew Shapiro

The Boards and Committees of Hope College Editor's Note: The boards and committees at Hope College were established to serve the students. With a little interest and perseverance on the part of the individual no problem need go unsolved and no grievance need go unaired. This article is intended to show students where pertinent ideas and suggestions will be given the greatest consideration by outlining the structure and specific functions of the boards and committees.
l f ( 1
T h e basic structure of c a m p u s government has three levels. The lirsl level consists of committees with representation by faculty, administrators and students. They analyze questions of policy which are presented for action t o the second level, the boards. Faculty members, s t u d e n t s elected by the s t u d e n t body and administrative appointees make up the boards, which decide on policy matters. These decisions can only be overridden by a faculty review, a presidential veto or action by the Board of Trustees on the Presid e n t ' s request. This veto power is the third and highest level. T h e S t u d e n t Congress refers s t u d e n t ideas and responses to the proper board for detailed study and action. The Congress appoints members to the standing committees of the boards, presents proposals to a board or committee and has administrative responsibility in areas assigned t o it. It deals, through its Judicial Board appointees, with student violations of regulations, p r o m o t e s and organizes the college social program and serves as the official agency of s t u d e n t opinion to the faculty and administration. The Boards are the actual legislative bodies, for they review and take action on all recommendations from their standing committees. The three boards are the Academic Affairs Board, the Campus Life Board, and the Administrative Affairs Board.

32-0 at the half
Alma Scots nail Dutch, 39-7 by Charles Le Purge
Ihe Dutchmen's a t t e m p t to make a pcrlect 2-0 Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association football record was thwarted Saturday by an inspired Alma team which scored 32 points in the first half. Ihe Alma homecoming crowd anil a 32-0 half-time lead proved to be loo much for Hope to overcome, although Hope played a much better second half, holding Ihe Alma Scots lo one touchdown, but lost 3(J-7. ALMA GOT ON Ihe scoreboard at ( >:20 in the first nuarter when Kick Leedy intercepted a (Iroy Kaper pass and returned it 50 yards for a t o u c h d o w n . At 6 : 3 0 of the same quarter Steve Liske intercepted Ihe second Kaper pass and returned it 3 ( ) yards to the Hope one yard line, where Byron Johnson plunged in on the first down play. After a short Hope punt. Alma gol on the scoreboard again on a 3 ( )-yard touchdown run by Kick
Mamzarlo, a 27-yard pass from Jerry Watson to Mam/arto for a touchdown, and a final first half score on a pass from Watson to Larry Angis with 2() seconds remaining in Hie half. HOPE PLAYED a much better game in Ihe second half, but it was evident from the Alma crowd ol 4,()()() that the Scots were out lo win. The Dutchmen defense stopped Alma time after lime in the second half, and even the offense showed signs of life under the direction of junior quarterback Jon Constant. Hope's only scoring drive was generated by the junior quarterback and capped by a flea-kicker play which Constant scored himself. It started out with a handoff to Bob Lamar going left. Lamar passed back to Ihe right side to Constant, who ran 14 yards unmolested into the Alma e n d / o n e . ALMA HAD AN EDGE in total yards of 3 ( ^3-266, but 240 of those yards came in the first half. The Hope defense intercepted lour Alma passes and at limes slopped Alma quarterback Jerry Watson (sixth in the nation in total offense) and Ins teammates cold. The offense for Hope did not tare well at all. Kaper and Constant were able lo complete only
nine of twenty passes, and three passes were intercepted. Hope, rushed for 163 yards. Next week Hope plays at Olivet at 2 p.m. Saturday. A win at Olivet would give the Dutchmen a 2-1 conference record and an overall record of 3-3.
Hope's Grepj Voss ,
