Foundation mayconstruct new building by Kris Olenik assitant news editor Hope College has applied for a grant from the Olin Foundation for a building to house the departments of English and Modern and C l a s s i c a l Language^ The Olin Foundation is a private firm from New York and Minneapolis and its sole purpose is to fund buildings for institutions of higher learning. Olin completely takes care of costs including architects, construction, e q u i p m e n t , f u r n i t u r e , and grounds. However, of the huiidreds of proposals they receive, Olin only accepts and funds two or three buildings per year. As a result, the level of competition is high and Hope would be extreme ly fortunate to receive the grant, according the Dean of Arts and Humanities, Dr. Bobby Fong. Fong who played a major role in shaping the proposal into final

form said, "We think we have submitted a good proposal, but we don't know how many other schools have also submitted good proposals." With the magnitude of the grant, receiving it would be "a tremendous gift for which we would be very grateful" said Fong. Approximated cost of building, should the Olin foundation select it would be $4.3 million. Work on the proposal began about a year-and-a-half ago. Important contacts and work on the business end were handled by President Jacobsen and Robert DeYoung. The proposal itself received extensive input from the two department heads, Dr. Judy Motiff and Dr. William Reynolds. Reynolds gave most of the credit to Motiff for working out the specifics and writing for the proposal. The need for the building, its purpose and the specifics had to be worked out

precisely ans succinctly since Olin only accepts proposals that are five pages or less. The need for the facility is great for both the English and language departments. Short term advantages would be a greater amount of space availible, for offices especially. Lubbers, where the English department is currently housed, and Graves, which holds Modem and Classical Languages, are getting cramped. Some English professors are having to double up in office space. Also the new facilities would be modern and built to suit present educational standards. Motiff said, "The facilities here are relatively outdated. We do have a state of the art (language) lab, but it's not large enough." The types of c l a s s r o o m s specified in the proposal would accomodate a larger number of students and ma'* it easier to

Hope attrition rates average by Carrie Maples campus editor A certain number of college students either change colleges or withdraw completely each year. When a student withdraws from Hope College they are risked to fill out a form citing reasons for leaving. These reasons and figures are then compiled into the Annual Attrition Report by the Registrar's Office.

O n e of the most popular personal reasons for leaving Hope for another institution is preference for a larger s c h o o l .

According to Motiff, in ordt r teach communicative skills m a second languague, "it is important to have access to appropriate materials"; such as videos, a lab large enough to hold a class, and even satellite con. munication. This project is especially im portant to Motiff and the futurv of M o d e r n a n d C l a s s i c a l Languages at Hope. Motiff said. "We are feeling a greater need to place e m p h a s i s on second languages." This is just one move in the nationwide surge toward educating the AMerican people in a second language. The U.S. is the only industrialized na tion that doesn't require educa tion in a second language from elemetary school onward. But it is beginning to change as laws are being passed and approprai tions made to fund language education at earlier ages.

The Report also indicates the n u m b e r of s t u d e n t s vino withdraw but intend to return to Hope at some point. Over the years this figure tends to remain between 20 and 30 students.

Also, with the additional space and facilities the English Department has been working on an idea that would offer an intensive program in English and-or an enrichment program for overseas students during the summer. Reynolds also stated, "The building would serve not just the needs of the English and Language Departments, but would serve larger campus needs as well."

i.' T h e alumni of the C o s m o p o l i t a n fraternity lead the singing of the alma mater. Photo by Lance Even

Cosmo fraternity honors 100 years of history (HOPE) - Homcoming activities at Hope College on had a special significance for the members of the Cosmopolitam Fraternity, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The Cosmopolitian Fraternity, established in 1890, has the distinction of being the oldest fraternity founded on the Hope campus. Although the 156-yearold Fraternal Society c a m e to Hope in 1864, it was established elsewhere-at Union College in Schenectady, N Y. The Cosmopolitan Society was established as an alternative to the othersocial organizations at Hope in 1890, and during its early years was not a Greek fraternity but a 'literary society,' as were the other such organizations on campus A sense of the society's focus can be found in the 1905 Hope College Annual,' which states that its aim was 4to fit it^ members especially for public speaking.' The fraternity's direction had shifted since 1905, and social activities play a larger role. The current Cosmopolitan constiution instructs that T h e object of Phi Kappa Alpha shall be the development of its members socially, i n t e l l e c t u a l l y , and morally, and to the betterment of society through its actions.'

Arfivii^s rnndurte^i by the fraternity reflect the change. A sampling from the past three decades includes housepainting for local families in 1967, a 'Hot Lips of Hope' kissing booth for the American Cancer Society in 1978 and a fundrcUing dance for victims of cerebral palsy in 1985. Despite the changes, however, through the years the regard the Cosmos have for their fraternity had remained constant. The memories, friendships and traditions are as valuable to current students as they remain for the organization's alumni. M I knew a lot of Cosmos (before joining) and 1 saw how they got along and how they treated each other, and it was obvious to me that it was a brotherhood-or something more than the regular friendships that 1 had run into," said Eric Emig ("91) currently the fraternity's president. "It's one of the best things that I've ever done for myself."

In a society of racial discord where f e a r and i g n o r a n c e separate us from one another. Gonzales hopes to "dispel fears, break down walls."

German reunification completes year-long process by Rychard Bouwens staff writer The German Democratic Republic, more commonly known as East Germany, united with the Federal Republic of Germany, West Germany, on October 3 after a year of precipitate change and hasty compromise. The East German parliament dissolved itself on October 2 and the representatives of four World War II allies met in Berlin for the official cessation of their Allied ties of World War II. The Germans have selected Berlin as their provisional capital and the new written constitution fills 243 pages, meticulously encompassing even the details of daily living. The reunification of both Germanys ended a 45 year split between them. A year ago, on October 18, East Germany underwent a "bloodless" revolution. Last November, the Berlin wall opened, and on July 1, the Germanys formed an economic union, consolidating the East Germany Mark with the West German Mark. Finally, on September 12, the four World War II Allies agreed to relinquish their ties and allow Germany to reunite The newly formed government took on ^ representatives from

East Germany. Political analysts believe;, the influx of East German representatives schooled in heavy bureaucracy and anti-NATO propaganda will tilt the new Germany farther left. A great deal of enthusiasm surrounds the reunification. People applaud the new opportunities for East Germans to experience f r e e d o m a n d e x p l o r e an economic livelihood that a socialistic economy never offered. Inevitably, there are those who scorn the reunification. Disliking capitalist materialism, they would prefer working out of a love for humanity.

Letters to the Editor

Editorial Spirit, participation excite campus during Homecoming weekend Homecoming 1990 was an excellent example of a successful festival weekend. The Student Activities Committee (SAC), the greek organizations and the Hope sports teams deserve a large round of applause. The weekend got off to a good start with the dedication luncheon for the new DeWitt Center for Economics and Business and the remodeling of Van Zoeren and Vanderwerf Halls. Over 375 alumni, Board of Trustee members and students filled the Maas Center for a delicious meal. The DeWitt family was honored for their Christian giving to Hope College for the DeWitt Center of Student Activities and now for the DeWitt Center for Economics and Business located in Van Zoeren. A sour note was heard, however, as the well-meaning luncheon planners had the pep band lead the procession of guests across campus to the front of Van Zoeren. The band disturbed a lot of classes in Lubbers and Graves Halls. Saturday, the weather cooperated for the Homecoming Parade. The strong turnout of greek floats was great. The SIBs deserve special applause for their first-place float. The parade was longer than it has been in most years and to see alumni in the parade was great. The football game was packed with fans. Although the team lost, the anchor appreciates their hard work and winning record. It's good to have a winning team to back once again. The cheerleaders at the football game deserve a cheer themselves for leading a responsive, finally, crowd in some cheers. The dead Hope crowd has always been a complaint at the football games. But last weekend people were seen to cheer, and even occasionally stand up. Having most of the other sports here for Homecoming was fun, too, but turnout there had to be down which is too bad. The Homecoming Dance Saturday night with Jady Kurrent was packed with students and a good event. SAC did a good job with food, picking the band and making things go smoothly. So often, members of the Hope community are stretched in a hundred different ways It was nice to see large numbers of people working toward making Homecoming a success and it was great to have so many participants. The anchor hopes this tradition continues.

Survivors not the only ones who need to be aware of rape I ear Editors: Cheers to Mr. Anderle's letter. Jeers to the other retorts. 1 agree that the horse is alivtand kicking-but who it's kicking iin't dead and they are hurting. Women are once again struck down in the name of sexism. I think it's also time for a new focus. Perhaps it's one that some will again claim isn't aliveunfortunately those blind people are again wrong. Survivors of sexual assault are very much living-even here at Hope College. A support group of evergrowing number meets each Monday at 4 p.m. at the Counseling Center on Hope's campus.

Cabinet fails to see case for sex discrimination Dear Editors: This letter is in response to your two a r t i c l e s and one editorial contained in the October 3 issue charging the Student Congress Cabinet with sexual discrimination in appointing Scott Gilmore to congress According to your editorial, you feel this charge is substantiated by both logic and statements that we. members of the Cabinet, have made. We. the Student Congress Cabinet, felt the need to respond to the anchor's charge because it is simply not the case. First, we fail to see the logic at to the fact that the individual we chose is male and the other three candidates are female necessitates sexual discrimination. Secondly, we stated that the issue of gender was discussed, as were a variety

Ignorance or denial of its existence does nothing. Active participation does a definite something. Second, do not cringe from taking a stand. Prochoicers and FCA can do it-so give it a try. Third, the survivors aren't the only ones who must respond to this challenge. Rape's frigid

Jevi^.on has noihuig to do with some "hidden (sexist) agenda." but rather has everything to do with which candidate we thought vsaa best suited for the position Your allegations are unwar ranted. We would also like to take this opportunity to reinforce the fact that Student Congress is elected by the students, is compsed of students, and works for the students. As students, we are all on the same side as we all share the ultimate aim of furthering us along as a student body. We need each other. The anchor has acknowledged Student Congree's existence on two occasions this year. Of the four articles you have writtern, three were regar ding these allegations, and all four seem to have been written with the primary intent of giving Student Congress n e g a t i v e publicity. We appreciate the anchor's efforts if your intent is to hold us, as elected officials, accountable to the student body. However, that just does not appear to be the case. Why you would want to try to tackle your quarterback we do not understand.

Fortunately it has disappeared from his latest commercials. Recently, Blanchard has turned to citing past Engler votes, usually with some relation to appropriations for education, environmental clean-up or business.

as a whole, campaigns emphasize style over substance (even if the style is to decry style over substance), quick-hitting 10to 30- second spots, and true-butless-than-honest attacks. But before you go saying "yeah, those morons who let Look at any themselves be swayed by such Congressperson's voting tactics that cause such hideous campaigns."

One of them being that it would be a distraction to students studying in the A.J. Muste alcove. Now this may be true for some students. Everyone agrees that study area is a key factor in the learning process. But, wait a minute, here's an original idea: if it bothers you, don't sit there!

SENIOR SPACE Parietals is one example of a direct barrier between students and independence. This rule is proof that the administration has little trust in the student body. If Hope College is, in fact, a Christian school, I doiibt that there would be anything to question on the conduct of students. The same applies to the alcohol policy on campus. The decision on whether or not to drink should be made by the student, not the administration. As long as everything is within the law, there should be no objections. I realize that both of these reglations probably deter a few students from acting in "sinful" ways.

Dutch drop close game by Rochelle Anderson sports editor Despite a last quarter effort by Hope, Olivet held on to rain on Hope's Homecoming. At the Holland Municipal Stadium, the Flying Dutchmen brought the game to the wire before they lost 20-14. The key drive of the game started when Hope's defense held the Comet's and turned the ball over with under six minutes to play. Three key things happened to bring Hope to within a pass of a win. First, the scoreboard went off, and the officials put six minutes back on the board. This gave Hope as much as 30 seconds more in which to play. The second was the two pass plays totalling 63 yards from Stefan Swartzmiller (492) to Jeff Schorfhaar (*91). This lined up a 10 yard touchdown run by Chris Howe(491). The third key play was when Hope's defense forced Olivet to turn the ball over after being down third and 17 and fourth and 7. This gave Hope possession at their own 42 yard line. With 2:39 left to play and down by six, it looked as if Hope would take the victory from Olivet. Quick passes from Swartzmiller to Kelly Powers( 4 91) and Schorfhaar put Hope on Olivet's 31 yard line with 1:52 left.

With :54 seconds left Hope had the ball on the 13 yard line. Hope took their last time-out with 37 seconds left and a third and nine situation still on the 13. Swartzmiller went to Howe and he missed the pass. With fourth and nine, but what might as well have been goal, Hope lined up again. They ran the play and the pass was on the numbers to Howe on the five yard line. Howe turned Uojuickly and could not hold onto it. With 24 seconds left Hope turned the ball and the game over to Olivet. Smith commented on the last two plays of their possession, 4, We ran a fullback flat pass to Howe and the second we ran what we call the flood play. We push all the guys to one side and look." Olivet dominated the first half scoring all their points then. Hope scored with 7:21 left in the half on an eight play, 56 yard drive. The touchdown came from a six y a r d r u n by P e t e r Stuursma( 4 93). Key mistakes for Hope enabled Olivet to make two touchdowns in the first q u a r t e r . Smith said,44We just didn't control the line of scrimmage." Another key was the penalties against Hope in the first quarter. Two offsided penalties put Olivet on the two yard line enabling their first touchdown. Illegal p r o c e d u r e forced

Hope into a second and 15 on their first possession. They chose to punt on fourth and one. With 1:14 left in the half. Olivet put their final points on the board, missing the extra point. 44 I commend them for playing well on the road," Smith said about Olivet, 44It w a s our Homecoming and I don't think our guys played well in the firsi half."

i thought when I saw Howe wide open then, we had pulled off another miracle," Smith said, T feel sorry for him." He added, 44I don't think (Howe) realized how wide open he was. I think he was looking for someone to come up and hit him, and there wasn't anybody there." Matching up the statistics, Hope controlled the passing

gam- completing 15 of 26 passes for 212 yards, where as Olivet on'y completed 6 of 17 for 73 yards. Olivet controlled the rushing with 266 yards to Hope's 135 yards. Hope is now i-l in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association while Olivet moves to 2-0 with Albion. Albion defeated Adrian 10-7 and Kalamazoo defeated Alma.
