A. J. Muste sculpture dedicated in library by Carrie Maples

co-editor After several years of debate and controversy, the A J . Muste sculpture was dedicated on Monday afternoon in the Muste Alcove of the Van Wylen Library. The sculpture was originally commissioned in 1989 after the college received a grant from the A J . Muste Foundation in New York. A contest was held among the advanced sculpture students and John Saurer ('89) was chosen my the A J . Muste Committee to create the sculpture. A. J. Muste was a 1905 graduate of Hope

of such a policy so as to prevent future incidents of this nature. The policy is that freestanding structures have only to be approved by the Campus Art Committee. Any structure that is in any way a permanent addition must be approved by the Building and Ground Committee. "In essence the President broke a deadlock," said Cronkite. He explained that there was no way the Building and Ground Committee would approve the sculpture and "we weren't going to give up." " W e were trying to find a creative way to solve the problem," Cronkite said.

A much different sculpture was originally designed. This design was rejected by the Board of trustees a year ago.

Declining enrollment tightens college budget by Jill Flanagan

While many state institutions are reporting record enrollments this year, private institutions such as Hope are attracting fewer students. Final totals show an overall decrease of 85 students, according to Bill Anderson, Vice President of Business and Finance. This amountstoashortfallofS833,000 in expected revenues. Although the numbers are large, the college has been planning for an enrollment drop for the past three to four years by not locking in expenditures. Said Anderson, "Actually, we expected the decline sooner." The decrease is, however, larger than anticipated this year. Said Anderson, " W e had originally thought there would be twelve fewer students. The larger number is a combination of not reaching our admissions goal and a higher attrition rate." The smaller enrollment is blamed on the recession as well as a nationwide decrease in the number of eighteen-year-olds. Anderson said that this is not unusual for a recession and that it has happened before at Hope. Said Anderson, " T h e budget cuts shouldn't affect any program seriously."

Some of the shortfall was overcome by emergency funds normally reserved for things such as a boiler blowing up, as well as funds from the plant budget which normally is used for remodeling and renovation. The problem with this is, according to Anderson, "You can't do it for longer than a year. Sooner or later you have to do these things." Othercuts came from smaller numbers of part-time staff and reduced budgets across departments. The college increased revenue through higher ticket prices and conference rates. The college also saved money in scholarships and grants this year. Overall, however, the total budget is up about five percent this year. Even within departments, according to Anderson, "they were allowed to increase, just not as much as they would have liked." Anderson emphasized that Hope is just "tightening up" and that the situation here is not like the highly publicized problems at Calvin. Said Anderson, " W e are not talking about layoffs this year at all. There could be some part-time positions we just don't use but those are always based on demand." According to Anderson, even if enrollment drops again next year, the cuts will still not be as drastic at Hope as at Calvin.

NEWS Continued from Page 1 The Muste Committee return to Saurer and requested that he design another sculpture for the Alcove that would be free-standing and would, therefor, only have to be approved by the Campus Art Committee. This time, the sculpture designed by Saurer consists of three geometric shapes that are covered in a green chalkboard material. The idea is that students and other members of the Hope community will be free to express controversial ideas on the surface of the sculpture. . When he introduced Saurer to the audience, Cronkite said, "I tried several times to imagine what it would be like for the artist to

deal with all the changes of course." Cronkite also thanked Saurer for his patience in dealing with the Committee and facilitating all the changes necessary to finally place the sculpture in Van Wylen. At the dedication ceremony Saurer expressed his sense of accomplishment now that the sculpture is finished and in place. "It's hard to believe we are standing here in this space, and it's a good space," he said. The Muste Committee gave Saurer a copy of Joanne Robbins' biography of Muste, Abraham Went Out. It is the hope of the committee that stu-

dents will make use of the sculpture to express ideas. "It is a way of institutionalizing our conflicts and controversies," said Cronkite. "If someone doesn't like the work they can always write how they feel on the sculpture. Now, if people will keep writing on it, that's another thing," said Cronkite. As part of the dedication "A Litany of Thanksgiving for theLifeof Abrahab J. Muste" was read by Dr. Elton Bruins, professor of religion. It concluded, "May his example enable us to stand for the Truth, be valiant servants of Christ Jesus, and follow the Holy Spirit in whatever direction He leads us today and in the future."

Alcohol consumption decreases nationally on college campuses by Cynthia Tanty Wi

c&npus editor *****

During the second week of the school year, first yearstudcnts responded to surveys about campus life. Professor Roger Ncmeth's Social Research Lab students created, administered, and analyzed the survey. The results were a "snapshot of how first year students rated their first few weeks here," said Nemeth. The nine students in the class were each responsible for interviewing 15 first year students, thus ending up with 135 firet yearstudcnts being interviewed. The sample taken was proportionate to the first year class according to the percentage of males and females. Said Nemeth. "Research lab is a new course and we needed a class assignment early to get them into it. This survey is something we identified as do-able. The

(CPS)-The old image of a "Animal House" beer-swilling fraternity soiree doesn't make it with the new generation. Drunken behavior, say students, is definitely uncool. This new altitude toward alcohol is showing up on American campuses during the 1991 National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week, Oct. 13-20. From boozefree nightclubs to "mocktail" parties, the message is clear: imbibing is Ok-getting wasted is not. "I believe it's because students are more health conscious these days," says Kurt Hair, a senior counselor at Dickenson College in Carlisle, Pa. Students are still drinking, but in less quantity than before. A recent Roper survey showed that more than half of all students (53 percent) consider alcohol abuse a major problem on campus. That was dramatically higher than student concern about non-violent and violent crime, drug abuse and AIDS.

In addition, a newly released University of Florida study claims the number of students who are drinking is less than it was a decade ago, and those who do are drinking less. The study showed the percentage of student drinkers decreased from 89 percent in 1981 to 80 percent in 1991. Average consumption among drinkers also dropped from

"It is still a major problem," Gonzalez said. "The majority of students drink, and campus incidents of violence and sexual assault are usually alcohol-related." Approximately 430 billion gallons of beverages are consumed annually by college students who spend about $4.2 billion on

booze each year, according to the Public Health Service's Office for Substance Abuse Prevention. In 1990, 33.5 percent of drivers in fatal crashes between the ages of 20 and 24 were intoxicated, a 6 percent drop since 1982, says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Still, the government estimates that 1,093 lives were saved in 1989 by laws that prohibit alcohol sales to those under 21. Even when alcohol use doesn't become chem ical dependency, college campuses m ust grapple with its effects, such as poor academic performance, aggression, property damage, accidents and strained relationships. Experts say alcohol also plays a significant role in cases of date rape, a problem receiving increasing attention. Many campuses now offer resident drug and alcohol counselors, and some programs for those dealing with the devastating effects of alcohol dependency. Programs run the gamut from chemical-free housing to alcohol awareness speakers and seminars. Dickenson College has organized a peer drug and alcohol education program in which trained students speak to campus groups about the consequences of substance abuse. Alcoholics anonymous and Al-Anon programs for students are held weekly on the sprawling University of California at Los Angeles campus. The California school's residential life program sponsors videos, seminars and presentations by psychologists during Alcohol Awareness week. A newsletter is distributed to UCLA students, and officials work with local merchants in an effort to promote discount sales of non-alcoholic beverages during the week. By producing a registration card, any UCLA student can obtain counseling without charge. Gettysburg College in Dalton, Pa., takes an unusual approach to fighting substance abuse on campus by offering "chemical-free housing" in which students pledge to abstain from alcohol while in the house and not to becomes intoxicated if they drink elsewhere. Gettysburg sponsored a "mini-conven-

tion" of students from regional colleges who are recovering from chemical dependency. The University of Utah at Logan celebrates Alcohol Awareness week a week later, but has one of the most comprehensive programs in the country. The week's events include everything from a candlelight vigil for drunken driving victims to a contest for the best "mocktail" recipe on campus. Students watch the police conduct a sobriety test and watch and improvisational theater that spoofs alcohol problems. The University of Utah substance abuse center brings in disabled persons, victims of alcohol-related accidents, to talk with students. A disk jockey who calls himself the "Milk Beast" louts the marvels of non-alcoholic beverages at a campus-wide dance. Alcohol-free parties, one thought an impossibility in campus life, are "in" during Alcohol Awareness week at Antioch College ar Yellow Springs, Ohio. After five years of observing Alcohol Awareness week, the school offers a residence hall that is both smoke-free and alcohol-free. At "Zanzibar," an alcohol-free nightclub at Mansfield University in Pennsylvania, sober students rock around the clock during Alcohol Awareness week. The school also has a 35-member drug and alcohol task force comprised of students, faculty, administrators and town residents who review and evaluate prevention programs to ensure they meet the needs of the community. At Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., 18-year-olds can't drink. Fraternities and sororities offer entering students a 90-minute seminar called "Party Positive" that emphasizes the ban on drinking, but also teaches sensible drinking when a students comes of age. "Party Positive" describes precautionary steps many fraternities already take: proofing students at the door, offering sober rides after parties and requiring students to check their keys at parlies.

Bacchus uses lectures to influence students This week is Alcohol Awareness Week and the Hope College chapter of BACCHUS (Boost Alcohol Consciousness Concerning the Health of University Students) has several events planned to bring the problem of alcohol and the idea of responsible drinking to the attention of the student body. "Although BACCHUS has only had a chapter at Hope College for about five years, we are recognized by students, faculty, administration and staff for our support of National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week, as well as our Christmas and Spring Break

campaigns," said Libbie Freed, Co-president of BACCHUS. "Our goal for the week is to try and target different areas of the student body so as to have an individual and positive impact on Hope's students," said Freed. On Monday a non-alcoholic bar was provided in Phelps during dinner. "Mocktails" were served and nonalcoholic drink mixes were available.

A series of three lectures are being presented this week. The first lecture was held yesterday. It was presented by Dr. Darell Schregardus, director of the Counseling Center, and the Hope Peer Educators. This lecture addressed the topic of dealing with a friend's alcohol problem and was titled 'That's What Friends Are For: Helping a Friend with a Drinking Problem." This afternoon at 4:30 p.m. a lecture

will be given by Dr. Pat Roehling of the psychology department. Roehling will talk on "Drinking and Dating." A special session for fraternities and sororities will be held on Thursday night. Professor Jim Piers, sociology department, will speak on Drinking and Hope College: Some Personal Views as a Student and a Faculty Member." "Alcohol Awareness week is to help students realize some of the effects of alcohol, and for BACCHUS 4to promote responsible decision-making about drinking," said Freed.

Hope President joins evaluation team by Cynthia Tanty campus editor President John Jacobson has been chosen to serve as a consultant-evaluator for the Commission on InstitutesofHigherEducation of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

Amnesty International attends conference by Erika Brubaker staff writer Hope'schapterof Amnesty International will attend a conference in Grand Rapids next Saturday entitled "Women's Rights are Human Rights: Setting Ourselves Free," and it will be held at the Central Reformed Church. The conference is described as "a day of involvement in international work to protect women from human rights abuses. You will also be informed about the problems women face in our own community and what can be done to help." There will be workshops on "An Introduction to Amnesty International," "Displaced Women in Grand Rapids," "Women in Resistance," and "Violence Against Women in Grand Rapids." There will be a slide show accompanying Pat Urban's talk on "The Confucian Culture and Women's Issues in South Korea." Many times women are raped or otherwise sexually abused. "Aside from the whole human rights thing, they're focusing on women. Women undergo a very different type of torture. Often, to get at men, a country or organization will lake advantage of a wife or sister or other female he is close to, to get to him." said Elizabeth Bos ('93). Bos continued, "I t makes you more aware of the things that go on in the rest of the world and in our own country. It's not political, it's not religious, it's not just a particular mindset. We're all human beings. It's not excluding anyone. It's a very simple concept, actually. "It is important to develop a sense of a different world-view while in college or it will be lost in the 'real world.' We need to acknowledge it as something really important and hopefully it will stick.'N Bos said that this year at Hope there are

"more people who have heard of the organization, who understand it and can support it." Amnesty International members work to free prisoners of conscience, to ensure fair and prompt trials for political prisoners and to end the use of torture and the death penalty. At Hope, "If there's an Urgent Action, after we get technical stuff taken care o f planning and education-we write letters to countries that have prisoners of conscience. The only one we've written so far this year was Guatemala. / "There are some organizations in Guatemala that are demanding money for secondary schools. Three of their leaders, also students, were killed. We wrote letters expressing concern for the situation and for the safely for the other members of the group, and to ask for an investigation of the situation, said Bos. Hope's chapter of AI does more than just write letters. Plans for this year include education on the death penalty. In November they will have a guest speaker, and they will also host a sale of Guatemalan goods like purses, hats and jewelry. This is the third year that Hope has had a chapter on campus and this year's group is the most consistent Bos has seen. This summer Bos contacted the chapter of AI in Grand Rapids that is sponsoring the workshop. The difference between the group in Grand Rapids and Hope's is that the Granc Rapids group is what Bos described as an "adoption group." Such a group is assigned one prisoner and they work only for tha prisoner. They write letters and occasionally make personal contact with the prisoner. "It is hard for a college group, we don' meet all year long and we're not as consisten as a city group. There is a high turnover rate of members," said Bos.

Compromise is a good thing

ompromise is a good thing when it benefits both parties. The Muste Committee and the Board of Trustees reached a compromise on the issue of the A.J. Muste sculpture targeted to be installed in the Muste Alcove in the Van Wylen Library. As long as both parties were satisfied with the result this compromise was a good thing. The Muste Committee has had a long struggle to achieve the dedication of the sculpture that was placed in the library on Monday. They were forced to change directions one year ago when they thought their job was finished. Congratulations should go to Dr. Cronkite and the rest of the Committee for their willingness to perservere in the face of such intense opposition on the part of the Board of Trustees. Their dedication is an example to everyone. Thanks should also go to President Jacobson for his part in helping to reach the compromise that enabled the Committee to work with the artist to create a work that could be placed in the library that would not have to go through the Building and Grounds Committee. The sculpture honoring Muste is a living work of art that will continue to breathe and speak for as long as members of the Hope community are willing to give it life. It is a place to voice concerns and to address issues. This is something Muste felt important and it is the joint responsibility of the student body and the faculty to see that the sculpture continues to be a way to air grievences and to make ideas heard. Time will tell if people are willing to make statements, but this is a non-threatening format and no one need fear personal repercutions. Just express a few ideas or voice a concern or two and honor the memory of A.J. Muste.

She shared with them some Soviet traditions, showed them where the U.S.S.R. was on a globe and taught them a few Russian words.

SPORTS Hope football is victorious over Alma in Homecoming game wind out of the Dutchmen's sails with a 64 yard punt.

by Cal Hodgson sports editor Hope vs. Alma. It looked to be an even match-up. Both teams had lost their first and won their last three coming into Saturday's game. The MIAA was enjoying their best nonconference record in memory going 16-5, but on the opening day of the MIAA football schedule, somebody had to lose. Alma lost to the Dutchmen 10-7. Hope got things going early on the ground with running backs Ric Blesch('92), Scott Frederick('92) and Peter Sluursma( , 93) finding big holes to run through. Blesch said, "Our offensive line did a good job." Center Gary Harger( , 94), guards Shawn Straub( , 92) and John Hetficld( , 94), tackles Devon Polderman( , 92)and Eric Kivisto( , 92) and tight end Tim VerMeulen('93) blew the Scots off the line to key a seven play, 71 yard drive that ended with a one yard touchdown by Frederick.

The newly fired up Scots stopped Hope's next drive, and Alma quarterback John Gilbert('92) went to work. Gilbert had runs of 30, 10 and 2 yards, scoring a touchdown on the last rush. On their next drive, Hope was hurt by penalties. Every time they moved down field, a penalty would bring them back. The Flying Dutch defense slopped Alma's next drive when the Scots tried for a first down on fourth and one. However, on the next play, a pass from quarterback Stefan , Swart/miller( 92) intended for VerMeulen was tipped and intercepted. Gilbert moved Alma down field with two quick passes. Unfortunately for the Scots, Gilbert suffered a season ending injury to his knee with 22 seconds left in the half. A 39 yard field goal attempt on the last play of the half by Alma was just wide to the right. Alma started the third quarter with a drive that got to the Hope 43 yard line. Then in one play it was over on a seven yard sack by defensive end Chad Ackermann( , 94).

The TD came with 11:38 left in the first quarter. The extra point was converted by Chris Eckert('95). Coach Ray Smith showed great confidence in his line, deciding to go for a first down on fourth and one a number of times. With 1:29 left in the first quarter, a 36 yard field goal attempt by Eckert was tipped and fell short. The Hope defense again stopped the Scots, but Alma punter Ritchie Feys('92) took the

On Alma's next drive Ross Richards( '95), who is 12th in the nation in rushing, broke away for what looked to be a touchdown run. Comerback Dave Slales( '92) caught him from behind though, and orcvented the Alma TD. Later in the quarter Slates blocked an Alma field goal try and Kelly Clark( , 93) recovered the ball, running it up the sideline before being forced out of bounds. Hope seemed to be ready to get something going

Ric Blesch ( 92) made several crucial plays in Saturday's Homecoming game against Alma, when S wartzmillerconnected with VerMeulen for a first down on the next play, but the Dutchmen and the Scots could generate no more ol fense as the game turned into a punting duel for the remainder of the quarter. VerMeulen said, "We started to miss blocking assignments. We had a few individual mental breakdowns, and we need all 11 guys in this offense." To start off the fourth quarter, the defense came up with another huge play when Toby Gruppen( , 93) blocked an Alma punt, giving Hope the ball on the Scots' 30 yard line. The next play saw Blesch go 26 yards to the four yard line. However, Hope could not put the ball in the endzone in three plays, and lost the ball on downs when a fourth down pass to VerMeulen was incomplete in the endzone. "We got down there and then stalled out. Their defensive line did a good job," Blesch

said. Blesch finished the day with 120 yards on 18 carries. Hope's defense AGAIN forced Alma to

punt, and Ric Blesch AGAIN got a big run for 34 yards down to the Alma four yard line. Ths Dutch AGAIN could not put the ball in the endzone in three plays. This time, however. Coach Smith elected to go forthe field goal, which Eckert converted for an 18 yarder. On Alma's last drive of the game, defensive end Mike Sparks('92) came up with i three yard sack. < Alma showed poise though, and cam^ right back with a 16 yard pass for a first down. Finally, two dropped passes did Alma in as they gave the ball up on downs. * Hope's running game came alive agaii^ as they ran out the clock to end the game. Hope is now 1 -0 in the MIAA and 4-1 overall! Coming into the game, Hope was ranked 20th in the NCAA Division III football poli. After Saturday's win they should move up in those standings. Hope's next game is Saturday at 5-(* Albion. Albion is ranked 17th in the natioRi and boasts the nation's leading rusher.

MIAA by Cal Hodgson sports editor Coming to Hope College, Lisa Stove^ 94) had no idea she would be starring on the Hope College women's golf team. That's because there was no women's golf team when she came to Hope. This is the inaugural season for women's golf at Hope College, as it is replacing field hockey as an MIAA sport. Jane Holman, director ol Hope s Dow Center, has drawn her first coaching assignment to lead the Flying Dutch. Stover has emerged as the MIAA's leading golfer, and has been the medalist in four out of six league tournaments this season. Hope has ensured itself of a conference title, going into their final tournament with — and this is not a misprint- a 216 stroke lead! Stover said, "We were lucky as far as players. There was no recruiting." Stover, however, didn't get to be good at golf by being lucky. Her whole family plays golf, and she has been playing seriously for 12 years. Growing up. Stover played in many junior tournaments. The summer before her senior year in highschool she won regional and state tournaments to go to the national junior tournament. Only one girl from each state attended, and

third in the Michigan highschool state tournament, coming in only two strokes behind the winner. Stover also played volleyball in highschool but numerous injuries kept her from pursuing the sport at Hope. Stover participated in Nykerk last year but won t be able to participate this year because golf takes up most of her time. The women's team spends two and a half hours a day practicing. When asked what she needs to practice on. Stover said, "Driving is my strong point. My putting needs work." Stover's motivation comes from her teammates, especially Lindsay Munson('93), who is presently second in the MIAA golfing standings. 'Lindsay has been right with me the whole season," Stover said. "She lets me know that 1 can't slack off." The Flying Dutch hope to be invited to nationals in the spring. Unfortunately, if invited, Hope will have to play against Division I opponents since there is not yet a separate Division III National Tournament. Stover has not yet declared, but is leaning toward a business major. Over the last couple
