Brickley Addresses College Republicans by Timothy S h a f f e r L i e u t e n a n t G o v e r n o r J a m e s H. Brickley spoke to the Hope College Republicans T h u r s d a y , October 8, outlining and asking for support in his proposed constitutional a m e n d m e n t to s h o r t e m Michigan's ballot. Brickley's stop at Hope coincided with the formation of steering c o m m i t t e e s in Ottawa and Muskegon counties. T h e committee's p u r p o s e is to collect s o m e of the 400,000 p e t i t i o n s i g n a t u r e s n e e d e d statewide to put the proposal on the November 1982 ballot. Brickley's a m e n d m e n t calls for an appointment by the Governor r a t h e r than an election for S t a t e S u p r e m e C o u r t Justices, Appellate J u d g e s , the State Board of Education, and t h e m e m b e r s of the governing b o a r d s of Wayne State, Michigan State, and the University of Michigan. The judicial positions would be filled through w h a t Brickley t e r m e d the " m e r i t - s e l e c t i o n " s y s t e m . According to this system, the Governor would appoint a n i n e - m e m b e r J u d i c i a l Nominating Commission, of which no m o r e t h a n five m e m b e r s could be of the s a m e political party and no less than four could be lawyers. When a v a c a n c y occurred, the Commission would n o m i n a t e t h r e e candidates. The Governor would select one, and would need a p p r o v a l of the s t a t e Senate for confirmation. If approved, the judge would s e r v e t h r e e y e a r s a n d than face a " y e s - n o " vote f r o m the g e n e r a l populace. If approved, the judge would then finish the e i g h t - y e a r t e r m and t h e r e a f t e r f a c e a retention vote of the general populace e v e r y eight y e a r s . This d i f f e r s radically f r o m the present system, one that Brickley called the "laughing s t a c k " of the nation. Current-

ly, justices a r e n o m i n a t e d on a p a r t i s a n basis and elected on a non-partisan platform. According to Brickley, this s y s t e m forces judges to s p e n d at least six m o n t h s of an election y e a r c a m p a i g n i n g and also forces them to seek financial b a c k i n g from p a r t i s a n sources. Both f a c t o r s d i m i n i s h t h e e f f e c t i v e n e s s of t h e judiciary. In addition, potential judicial c a n d i d a t e s a r e often subject to the w h i m s of p a r t i s a n political conventions. To e m p h a s i z e how this a m e n d m e n t would affect the educational b r a n c h of Michigan's g o v e r n m e n t , Brickley d r e w an a n a l o g y w i t h l a s t N o v e m b e r ' s P r e s i d e n t i a l election. In that election, people who voted for Ronald R e a g a n knew what his educational policies w e r e and what c h a n g e s would take place if he w e r e elected. He w a s visible and so w e r e his educational policies, according to Brickley. The people, in voting for Reagan, m a n d a t e d a c h a n g e in the direction of national educational policies. To effect that s a m e c h a n g e in Michigan, said Brickley. would necessitate the r e m o v a l of 36 people. At present, 24 of the 56 university r e g e n t s elected nationwide a r e elected in Michigan. 90% of these c a n d i d a t e s a r e unknown by 90% of the electorate, said Brickley. In addition, the regency b o a r d s and the State B o a r d of Education all h a v e eight m e m b e r s . This results in f r e q u e n t 44 statements. Brickley's proposal would r e m o v e s t a t e educational posts f r o m the popular ballot and m a k e them appointed positions. All b o a r d s would be increased to nine m e m b e r s , and the ~ t e r m would be d e c r e a s e d f r o m eight y e a r s to six. The Governor would m a k e all the appointments, but the b o a r d s could never have

The p r e s e n t ballot, a c c o r d i n g to Brickley, is so long and confusing that it leads to a p a t h y in the s t a t e electorate. When people have little or no knowledge of the c a n d i d a t e s or their policies, the tendencies a r e either to abstain f r o m pulling any lever, or to vote for the most recognizable n a m e .

Recruiting Continues at Hope by J e n n i f e r Stemczynski With the first s e m e s t e r well u n d e r w a y , the admissions office h a s begun work on recruting prospective f r e s h m e n for the 1982-83 a c a d e m i c y e a r . According to the Dean of Admissions, J i m Beckering, " I t ' s still a bit early to d e t e r m i n e the enrollment for next y e a r , however, at this point w e ' r e not anticipating a significant decline f r o m the p r e s e n t . " Since last y e a r , the student e n r o l l m e n t e x p e r i e n c e d only a slight decline, dropping f r o m 2464 to 2458. Student enrollment plays a m a j o r role in the authorization and allocation of

financial aid. A decline j n e n r o l l m e n t , then, would partially be r e l a t e d to the rising tuition a s well a s the lack of a v a i l a b l e student funds. B e c k e r i n g added, " H o p e is still able to meet the needs of s t u d e n t s requesting financial s u p p o r t .

In the last few weeks the anchor has been overwhelmed with ideas for articles about "colleges away from college." Our last issue contained a feature comparing six GLCA programs available to Hope students. And "Beyond Hope," a new column O € featuring letters from students presently studying abroad, was inc CTJ troduced. U In this issue there is information about more off-campus proo u grams. Some of these programs are sponsored by Hope College; J J others are not. But all of these programs are available to Hope o r students. The smorgasboard of off-campus programs gives students a 0o X variety of incredible opportunities to choose from. Academically, students can intensely study specific areas of interest or experience "hands-on" internships. A few programs offer some of each. Culturally, students may experience life in a major city almost anywhere in the world or in a mountain community of less than 40 people. The possibilities are limitless. There are hundreds of classrooms outside of Hope's campus inviting you to step into. We encourage you to walk outside your present bounderies, broaden your horizons, and view the world from a new and different perspective. Take advantage of the offcampus opportunities that are available to you.

Letters Oregon Extension Dear r e a d e r s : Last year at this t i m e I w a s living and learning in the Cascade Mountains of southern Oregon, experiencing the best four months of my life. I was on the Oregon Extension, an off-campus program sponsored by Trinity College in Deerfield, II.When I c a m e to Hope last spring I wanted to s h a r e the spirit of the O.E. with everyone/ I wrote an article about m y s e m e s t e r in Oregon for the anchor and it appeared in an issue last March. In that article I tried to describe the broadening scope of learning and the unconditional love I felt as a m e m b e r of the Lincoln community. But it was. I concluded, impossible to c a p t u r e and put onto p a p e r the wonderful spirit I felt. Nevertheless, I tried to capture just a teensy bit of that spirit in an article for this issue. And this time, seven months after my first a t t e m p t , it w a s even m o r e difficult. (The reason, I believe is t h a t I have been weaned f r o m the spirit of the O.E., though not by choice.) I sought ideas by spending several hours reflecting and reading entries in the journal 1 kept when I was in Oregon. I sat with pen and p a p e r and wrote...and crossed out...and wrote...and tore up. And then I received a letter f r o m Lisa.... The following letter is one I received from Lisa Giddy, a senior biology/psychology m a j o r from Hope who is presently on the Oregon Extension. (Another Hope senior, David B r a a k , is there as well.) L i s a ' s "letter to the editor" r a d i a t e s the type of Joy and fulfillment I felt at Lincoln. She is in the midst oi the O.E. spirit and can, I believe, explain it better than one who was there. •

Kim Vander Bie Editor • ••

The handful of people who represent the Oregon Extension believe in the spiritual, intellectual and physical growth of those involved. We wouldn't be h e r e as students if we had doubts about this ideal, but at the s a m e time we know it will m e a n a lot of struggling and a g r e a t deal of work as individuals. I invite you to r e a d this brief " s c e n a r i o " because 1 h a v e found this prog r a m to be a valuable p a r t of my personal development.

F i r s t , allow m e to e m p h a s i z e that we a r e not merely engaged in a self-oriented sort of endeavor while we a r e here. The spirit of Lincoln is that of a c o m m u n i t y and this lifestyle is m a n i f e s t e d in all p h a s e s of our involvement here. This community is comprised of faculty, wives, and their children, students, and a few other families who live on the mountain. We have bi-monthly m e a l s in the cookhouse, worship, study the Bible, work, play, learn and grow together. F o r the informal lectures (we often come with our m u g s and down booties) we gather in the library w h e r e we sit in a circular a r r a n g e m e n t at l a r g e tables. The discussions t r a n s p i r e in the l a r g e group or b r e a k off into small groups that frequently m e e t in f a c u l t y h o m e s s o m e t i m e s over h o m e m a d e bread and tea. The point I ' m alluding to thus f a r is simply that participation is facilitated by the very s t r u c t u r e of organization a s well as the openness of the environment. As students, we respond s o m e t i m e s as inf o r m e d individuals about a f a m i l i a r subject or idea,, e x p r e s s our opinions freely a n d / o r ask seemingly unlimited questions. We not only l e a r n f r o m e a c h other, but r e a d a substantial n u m b e r of books that c a p t u r e the e s s e n c e of what w e ' r e studying at the time. The topics that we confront a r e unique in the sense that the r e a l m of such knowledge is not dealt with in the traditional educational system (or m a y b e not a n y w h e r e else). This pursuit of relevant issues with broad implications is such an exciting and fulfilling experience for me. During the first threeweek segment the topic of study is H u m a n Nature. The r e m a i n i n g s e g m e n t s a r e science and technology, religion, and views of modern society. Those a r e very all-encompassing a r e a s of exploration. One m o r e thing before I go on to discuss the n o n - a c a d e m i a : Grades. Our learning h e r e is not disrupted by w h a t we've all experienced at one or m o r e t i m e s in o u r lives - or p e r h a p s all the t i m e : Gradeover-consciousness. Our personal motivation to learn and to question is quite often the prefi^quisite for achievement. On this basis, together with our advisors, we d e t e r m i n e a g r a d e at the end of each of the four segments. • Our leisure-time activities a r e also highly valued h e r e in Oregon. Weekly volleyball g a m e s a r e played by all students and faculty. What f u n ! Other ac-

tivities that some of us enjoy include yoga, bird-watching, choir, basketball, field-studies walks. Inklings (a writing group), rock-climbing and rapelling, attending Shakespeare plays, and the most recently formed d r e a m group. Of course hiking, running, or even walking a r e common p a s t i m e s for most of us here, and t h e r e can't be a m o r e beautiful place in which to do so. Mountains and ridges etch p a t t e r n s in the distant skies, while open land filled with pines, c e d a r and n u m e r o u s wildlife and livestock surround us h e r e at Lincoln. Opportunities to travel on weeks a r e c o m m o n p l a c e at the Oregon Extension. This includes climbing mountains, c a m p i n g on the Oregon coast and visiting the nearest city -- Ashland -w h e r e we do our shopping and banking. So you see, not only do we work hard, but we play h a r d as well. In fact, our first week off is a b a c k p a c k - c a m p i n g trip to one of three wilderness a r e a s : Marble Mountains in California, T h r e e Sisters Wilderness Area in central Oregon or Mountain L a k e s Wilderness A r e a n e a r b y . I wish I had the opportunity to say m o r e about our trip (I went to The Sisters), but let it suffice to say only this AWESOME. Yes, awesome! In fact, this in a nutshell r e a l l j t s a y s it all.

Cartography, and others. Students who participate in the Fall S e m i n a r spend their s e m e s t e r concentrating on a single research p r o j e c t and participating in the scholarly life of this library. It is an ext r a o r d i n a r y o p p o r t u n i t y for an u n d e r g r a d u a t e student to get a real taste of research and scholarship. So why haven't Hope students been interested in the Newberry? Is it indeed that the prog r a m is too tough? Well, this p r o g r a m is challenging and it certainly isn't for everyone, but four y e a r s of teaching at Hope have shown m e how m a n y serious students t h e r e a r e who would thrive in the atmosphere of the Newberry. So c o m e on Hope h u m a n i s t s . Next y e a r ' s s e m i n a r topic is " L i t e r a t u r e and Politics." If you think a s e m e s t e r of r e s e a r c h at one of the country's most important research centers might be good for you, find out more about the Newberry L i b r a r y Fall Seminar in the Humanities.

Is Newberry Hard? Dear Editor : I w a s pleased to see mention in your recent article on off-campus p r o g r a m s of the N e w b e c c Library S e m i n a r in the Humanities. It is true, as P r o f e s s o r Cohen h a s pointed out, that few Hope students h a v e availed themselves of this excellent opportunity to spend a s e m e s t e r at the Newberry L i b r a r y in Chicago. But could it possibly be t r u e that this p r o g r a m is just too difficult for Hope students? I honestly don't think so. It is t i m e that - students f r o m Hope begin to seriously consider this consortial p r o g r a m which is, according to m a n y , the equivalent in the Humanities to the Oak Ridge Science S e m e s t e r . T h e Newberry is a p r i v a t e r e s e a r c h library which house extraord i n a r y i collections in such a r e a s of specialization as the history of the American Indian, the Renaissance, the French Revolution, the Chicago Renaissance, F a m i l y and Community History.

A rt ^ r a s s and mountain r a n g e s / Beckoning the f r e e / A place to walk with head held high / F o r you but not for m e / The burning sun of Africa / A sky t h a t ' s always blue / Apartheid and the passed laws / F o r m e but not for you.

To the Editor: Changes that a r e going on all the time, even when we c a n ' t see them where we a r e at this p a r t i c u l a r time, a r e very important to keep our perspective to note that these things a r e taking place at different places and at different times, that the changes never stop, and eventually people win. For instance, we could look at the South African situation and their continuation of the struggle a f t e r the m a s s a c r e in 1960 till present day, where so many people w e r e (are) shot down by the South African police. The poem below was written by E . Mc Call and is dedicated to the South African people. It is a poem that really applies to every situation. Whether the class question becomes a question of race where those things so clearly divided along the racial lines, as we see in South Africa these days. Let's wake up to these changes and not be responsible. The apples a r r i v e upon the bow / The orange on the tree / Their hands were black that picked the fruit / F o r you but not for me. / D i a m o n d s are shining in the rock / Gleaming white and blue / Ten hours a day the diamonds minded / For me but not for you.

A big land, a gracious land / A place where old meets new / The bullets fired and shot sailed wild / F o r m e but not for you. You planted seeds of f e a r and hate / In our word " b e f r e e " / At harvest time that root will be / For you but not for me. Zahra Tavakoli

Why Dow Cards To the E d i t o r : When the Dow Center first opened its doors in the fall of 1978, students and faculty did not hav€ to show identification to gain a d m i t t a n c e . Door g u a r d s did their best to look at those entering and spot unauthorized personnel. The s y s t e m didn't work. The Dow Center Regulatory Commission (DCRC) spent a lot of time patrolling the facility, evicting t r o u b l e m a k e r s , m a i n t a i n i n g order, and handling student complaints of a different type. Since the door policy w a s vague, most door g u a r d s didn't stop anyone between the ages of 16 and 25 and the word got out in the community that the Dow Center was an easy target.


The problem b e c a m e acute in the winter of 1978-79, and we changed our policy. Door g u a r d hours w e r e increased. We have discussed placing the desk at the beginning of the east-west hallway but feel that this minimizes a m a j o r service of the door g u a r d , that of helping visitors and directing people with concerns and questions to people who can be of a s s i s t a n c e s them. We have modified our policy somewhat and the new policy is stated below.

created some problems when students or faculty forget their ID's. It is not our intention to prevent or delay students from attending classes, t h e r e f o r e the following modification will be m a d e on this policy. Beginning ten minutes prior to the s t a r t of o each c l a s s period, s t u d e n t s will not be 03 w sent back to get their ID but will inform the door g u a r d of their p r e d i c a m e n t . If the door g u a r d is reasonably certain that *-• they a r e in fact students on the,way to a class, they will be allowed entrance.

Dr. Evans to Visit Hope by Beth Schilling Dr. David A. E v a n s , professor of chemistry at California Institute of Technology, will be visiting Hope College for a week of lectures, meetings, m e a l s and informal interaction with students and faculty during the week of October 2630. He will be here in conjunction with the 1981 C a m i l l e a n d H e n r y D r e y f u s Distinguished Scholars P r o g r a m , which "is directed towards increasing the ability of students to recognize and utilize creative discoveries in c h e m i s t r y . " As the fourth such p r o g r a m since 1977, It is m a d e possible through the funds of the Camille and Henry D r e y f u s foundation, and is a tribute to the D r e y f u s brothers, "who appreciated the need to promote understanding a m o n g scientists in their fields of i n t e r e s t .

Admissions Remodeling Nears Completion by Keith Grigoletto The $80,000, three-month-long remodeling project of the Admissions D e p a r t m e n t building is nearing completion, m a r k i n g the end of some inconvenience for staffers, while providing an a t t r a c t i v e first impression for new students. "People were s h a r i n g offices." explained Jim Bekkering, Dean for Admissions. " I t ' s worth the wait and noise," he said. The Admissions Dean went on to say that the main purpose of the project was to present Hope College in an a t t r a c t i v e way. " It's the first exposure to most s t u d e n t s . " " T h e Admissions Office should be a nice first impression," echoed Bill Anderson. Vice P r e s i d e n t for Business and Finance. The Admissions project is the first massive renovation project that longtime s t a f f e r s would have seen in almost 20 years. "We haven't done anything since 1962," said Anderson. The s a m e int e r i o r d e c o r a t o r s who toiled o v e r Voorhees Hall w e r e brought back for work on the Admissions Building. The decision to work on Admissions evolved in discussion for trying to find a new location for the d e p a r t m e n t , according to Bekkering. There was talk to unite them with other administrative offices in DeWitt but. said Anderson, "students didn't l i k e ^ t . " The Admissions Dean,however, likes the d e p a r t m e n t where it is. " I w a s back and forth on the proposal to move to DeWitt. It would be close to the other offices for people to visit, but this house is so n i c e , " s a i d Bekkering. The Admissions location provides an ideal view of student traffic for prospective students and a walk across campus to DeWitt's other offices would "show-off the school," it w a s f u r t h e r decided.



The remodeling project includes an 800 foot addition to the original building, interior decorating, paint job, new insulation, and new s t o r m windows. Four offices for road representatives

will shortly be in place in the new addition. Low dividers will s e p a r a t e the offices to p r e s e r v e the natural lighting s t r e a m i n g through the windows. A v a r i e t y of b e i g e c o m m e r c i a l carpeting w a s laid down to compliment the paint job of brown tones. In approximately five weeks, new H e r m a n Millertype f u r n i t u r e will replace much of the

Mr. and Mrs. Vander Werf a d m i r e the plaque in Vander Werf Hall. by Keith Grigoletto After 17 y e a r s of being without a n a m e , last week the Physics-Math building received an identity long worth waiting (or. Calvin Vander Werf, eighth president of Hope College, w a s officially honored by the College when they r e n a m e d the Physics-Math Building a f t e r him at a convocation 9th. vuvaium ceremony held on the-v.— Vander Werf g r a d u a t e d f r o m high school at 16 and continued his education at Hope, g r a d u a t i n g valedictorian of his class. Vander Werf served as College President from 1963 until 1970. He w a s responslble for fanning out the reputation of the college, especially In the sciences. " T h e school opened up," said E k d a l Buys, Honorary Trustee. " H e opened up a lot of contacts and brought in a lot of faculty." The Board of Trustees has a policy to n a m e a building at any time, "One has to look at the total building plan," stated Board C h a i r m a n Victor Elmlcke. "We recognize the relationship and contribution to the school which Is not necessarily financial. "Amongw the extraordinary Vander Werf contributions a r e : the assltlng of faculty In attaining grants, construction of Dykstra Hall and attracting superior Instructors to join the Hope f a c u l t y . At the c o n v o c a t i o n ceremony, Hope President Gordon Van Wylen announced, " I have built on the foundation he l a i d , " with respect to Vander Werf. Not only were the contributions of the 8th Hope President outstanding, but they were m a d e when college c a m p u s e s across the nation w e r e experiencing the friction of the sixties, explained Elmlcke. Students portested outside Vander W e r f ' s home demanding the construction of the DeWitt Center, but said Board of T r u s t e e m e m b e r s , " F u n d s weren't coming In a s quickly as we thought." F o r m e r Student Congress President Bruce Nechers ex-

mercy, and love Is needed as well. Following the a d d r e s s . E l m l c k e presented the Hope College Distinguished Achievement Award to Rachel Good Vander Werf for giving vision and leadership to the College and community as well as encouragement and inspiration to faculty, and staff. Mrs. Vander Werf w a s recognized for such contributions as her role in establishing a Phi Betta Kappa chapter and hosting foreign students. After the convocation, everone was invited to the Physics-Math building for the official dedication presented by Provost David Marker. E i m i c k e later declared that, " F r o m this day on the building should be known as Vander Werf Hall." Before the construction of Vander Werf Hall, Physics and Math classes were held in two or three rooms in Lubbers Hall, recalled Marker, reflecting back on the y e a r s when he taught physics here. " T h e r e were three physics faculty t h e n , " he recalld. At a casual luncheon following the dedication, Van Wylen said it w a s easy to follow Vander Werf. The Hope College

President l a t e r cited three f a c t o r s he uses as models gained f r o m Vander Werf's inspiration. TTie first is a definition of what Hope College Is and what its values are. "It w a s a l w a y s g r e a t to seek that vision," said Van Wylen. " B u t secondly, the vision has to be t r a n s l a t e d into r e a l i t y , " he said, citing the m a s t e r plan for the c a m p u s . Thirdly is the sense of compassion; that is, to use knowledge for the well-being of people.

It can happen any time, but it seems like it usually happens late at night...when you're studying, or at least, should be. ( We're talking about "The Munchiesl" And while most restaurants close fairly early in Holland, there's one just two blocks from campus that's open until midnight Sunday through Thursday and 1:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. It's "Your Home Town Pizza Hut restaurant" on the corner of Columbia and Eighth Streets. And on the late night fare you'll find pizza, sandwiches, pasta, a sdlad bar and beverages. A little earlier in the evening on Wednesdays from 5 to 8 p.m. there's the Pizza Hut "all you can eat buffet" for $3.49. And if you've been up all night studying, and come down with a case of "High Noon Munchies," the same buffet goes for $3.19,11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Monday through f^iday. Then of course, there's the Epidemic Munchies...a phenomenon that often occurs at campus parties. It's when the munchies strike in bunches. The sure cure for that dread disease is 392-6404...the phone number for carryout at The Columbia Pizza Hut restaurant. And if you've got a planned munchie event, call Frank Ktobucher the manager. He's got special party and group prices, as well as off- premises catering for larger groups. Call Frank too, if you're trying to raise money for your campus dub or organization. There are several Pizza Hut fund raising ideas, and Frank will be glad to suggest something for your group.. In the meantime remember...if you are the sudden victim of a severe attack of the late night munchies, help is lust two blocks away at Your Home Town Pizza Hut restaurant. —

by Rowland D. Van Es, Jr. Life is confusing. T h e world is full of problems and the a n s w e r s seem nowhere in sight. Where do we turn for guidance? Who shall be our guide through this maze? We feel lost because t h e r e are no simple solutions. The more we study, the more confused we become; T h e "exp e r t s , " Instead of converging toward some central truth, tend to diverge away to opposite e x t r e m e s . T h e r e a r e no answers in the back of the Book of Life (not even to the odd-numbered exercise^) . The real questions of life cannot be answered a, b, or c; they have to be struggled with. The person content only with clear-cut solutions will shy a w a y from metaphysical discussion - he h a s to. The person, on the other hand, who is willing to discuss what is truly real will accept the challenge of life as it is offered (contradictory, absurd, difficult, and frustrating) and will learn to deal with it He is the one who l e a r n s to truly live. These thoughts c a m e to m e a f t e r reading, of all people, T h o m a s Robert Malthus, the dismal economist. He states in An Essay on the Principle ot Popuiation that the metaphysical will always be obscure, but t h a t ' s okay.

'Working' at Hope - A New Musical tober 28-31. It is a musical with a cast of 16 talented Hope students and is directed by Professor R. Scott Lank. Work on Working began on September 14. This play was chosen because of its unique style, the size of the cast needed, and the way it fit with the experience Hope's students had to offer. It is also a ipusical that has not been overdone in the college t h e a t r e world. It contains no definite plot, but its central t h e m e consists of presenting modern day workers and their roles in our society. These c h a r a c t e r s , whose n a m e s have been changed, a r e based directly upon the people interviewed by Studs Terkel for his novel. So they actually present a microcosm of life in the United States. E a c h one discloses himself through action, description, and song. The songs in

Working were composed by five different songwriters, and almost every c h a r a c t e r in the play has a musical part. Director Lank is happy with the progress of the play. " E v e r y t h i n g is working together very well," he commented He mentioned that all the choreography and music is being directed by students, so there is much talent displayed behind the scenes. In this way, students gain more production and t h e a t r ical experience. Wortongpromises to be a unique and interesting d r a m a t i c production, and one well worth seeing. It will provide a refreshing overview of life for the average citizen, those we come in contact with daily, and those who we may someday become. Don't miss this experience to see life through the eyes of people from all walks of life.

>>,0. by CoryMackwood With Homecoming past and Parent's Weekend nearing, the campus has been undergoing many needed improvements. I'm not reletting to Voorhees or the Admissions building, but rather, on general § terms, the improvement of the grounds. w I will agree. that the repair and o maintenance of the College is important every effort should be made to maintain the campus* beauty. What! don't agree w with, but have witnessed for the past four Ou years, is the ^timely repair" of this camo X pus. Every year during October and November, when parents, alumni, and dther "importants" visit our distinguished school, a special effort is made to clean up the campus. Those supposedly "In the know" have denied this for several years now, but anyone with two eyes (or even one eye) and smarts enough to be at Hope can easily recognize a put-on when he or she sees it. Examples of this obvious behavior are many. For example, the driveway behind Voorhees Hall sat all summer and September cracked, muddy, and generally in terrible repair. The week before Homecoming a new drive, was put in along with some expensive sod. Another example is the area behind Durfee that

(continued from p. 5)

was a literal mudbowl for three years. This area was also sodded the week before Homecoming (and all those rich alumni). Let's not forget our semi-new cafeteria that is in its fourth semester of use. A few days before Homecoming a plaque was installed under the clock honoring those who made that expansion possible. A timely coincidence? Hardly. All these repairs and recognitions should, no doubt, be made. However, let's stop trying so hard to impress. Let's show



the past. He urges seniors to look ahead to the future, attend the senior orientation meetings and visit the office at the start of the senior year. This program offers many opportunities to the average student, but it is up to you to take advantage of it. "Don't wait until May 1 to come to me looking for a place to go after graduation," Austin stresses. Be aware of what is available to students now and take an active part in planning your future. If the Hours the office is open pose a problem for you because of work or classes, Austin would be happy to schedule an appointment with vou at a more convenient time.

the real Hope - the way it is the rest of the year, away from "visiting weekends." Fix the grass, put up a plaque, but do it when it is needed, not when it is convenient to impress those who donate, or may in the future donate, to the College. These timely repairs only cause hard feelings between the College and the student body, feelings that may continue after graduation. Some of the things that are supposed to make Hope College unique are honesty, openness, and trust for one another; let's try living up to our name and be all of these things to each other. If nothing else, gentlemen and ladies, remember - today's student is tomorrow's alumni. Treat him/her well.

by Crystal Nannenga . A popular Ziggy poster proclaims, "Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after I" Is this the right attitude to have regarding the competitive Job market that we fjnd ourselves in today? College students are traditionally very concerned with their plans for the future, after they leave the fold of college society. Can anyone assist seniors looking for Jobs? The new Job placement director. Dale Austin, answers to the needs of students seeking positions afte^ graduation by setting up Interviews, recruiting companies to visit Hope, and by trying to match the demand for students in the business structure to the desire for employment that Hope's graduates express. The Job placement department at Hope has undergone many changes over the last year. The former placement director, Myra Zuverink, was replaced by Dale Ausitn on August 20,1981. Austin foresees many new opportunities In employment available to students In the future. The office has also expanded its hours from a part-time to a full-time operation. The job placement office Is located in the basement of the DeWitt Cultural Center and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Students are encouraged to stop in and see Austin anytime to discuss their goals and employment options. The office is involved with selling Hope's students to those members of the business world looking for employees with a college education. Since he has only been with this program for a few months, Austin could not give the percentage

of students placed in Jobs during the past few years. He did cite, however, that "of previous Hope students, there Is only a 1% Unemployment rate." Compared to an average rate of 8% in the Holland area, things look bright for Hope students. Which geographical areas does job placement cover? Austin deals mainly with corporations In and around the Holland area, Zeeland and Grand Rapids. Some students may find this restricting, but, as he explained, there Is less competition for Jobs In neighboring towns with smaller populations than there is for corporations In the larger metropolitan areas. In the future, Austin plans to begin affiliations with companies In Detroit, Chicago, and other cities within fairly close distance of the school. He intends to broaden the options available to students and increase their chances of landing the Job that is right for them. The future looks promising for the job placement services. Austin has been scheduling Interviews with Hope's previous business contacts and also recruiting new outlets for the campus in the Job market. He meets with faculty chairpersons from each department to determine where Hope's graduates have gone in the past, in reference to the possibilities each field will hold in the future. He has also been involved with setting up intern programs in various departments through his contacts. Austin's approach this year promises to be "more aggressive" in establishing relationships with potential employers and graduate schools, and in lessening the limitations placed upon students in

Beyond by Michael B l a n k s m a E d i t o r s note; Michael Blanksma is a junior from Holland, Michigan and is majoring in German. He is spending this academic year with the Institute of European Studies at the University of Freiburg in West Germany. This Is another off-campus study program open to Hope students. Michael's address Is: Merghauser Sir 2-16, Haus 7 / 520 Bosler Tor / 78 Freiburg Im Breisgau / West Germany N o t e : T h e f o l l o w i n g is e n t i r e l y hypothetical, but could happen any day. SITUATION I: 4i A", an inventor, owns a building of about 20 one-room flats In the older section of a G e r m a n university town of about 2000.000 inhabitants. T h e building is about 35 years old and badly in need of renovation. Its c u r r e n t o c c u p a n t s a r e students, living three to four in a flat. The rent is about $200 a month p e r flat, hot w a t e r and heat not included. 44 A" does not clear much profit on this building. He therefore decides to tear it down and build luxury a p a r t m e n t s , for which he could receive four to five t i m e s the rent. This m e a n s increasing his profit by p e r h a p s a q u a r t e r million dollars a y e a r -- a very good investment. Thus, " A " decides to go through with his plans. He offers each of his r e n t e r s $400 and two y e a r s f r e e rent at an a p a r t m e n t of his choice to m o v e out. He feels this is a very fair deal for his renters. They a r e evicted and given the money. But planning and executive red tape being as is, the building stands-vacant for two y e a r s . SITUATION II; " B " is a student at a G e r m a n university. He lives in a building of one-room flats with three other students, thereby keeping his budget down. The building is old and in need of renovation. But " B " does not mind this at all, seeing as how these three friends have b e c o m e family to him and a housing s h o r t a g e leaves them with no other place to live together so cheaply. " B " has been hearing r u m o r s lately that the building he is living in will be torn down and replaced by luxury a p a r t m e n t s . At the end of the school year he finds out these r u m o r s a r e all too true. He receives an eviction notice, and a letter explaining he will be given $400 and two y e a r s f r e e rent at an a p a r t m e n t building across town if he so chooses. This, however, means, leaving his ' ' f a m i l y " and spending much m o r e in r e n t costs a f t e r the f r e e two y e a r s a r e up. He passes the offer up and decides he a n d his friends will simply find another place to live. Little does he know, the s a m e situation is true for most of the other a p a r t m e n t buildings in town, as his landlord, " A " Is a m e m b e r of a union which controls these buildings. Next y e a r " B " r e t u r n s , only to find no housing whatsoever for him and his friends at such a low cost. But, to his surprise, the building in which he had lived Is

(continued from p. 9) All over Germany the situation is much the same. Buildings which were previously student-rented flats stand empty, waiting (or the wrecking ball, while students have no place to sleep. The owners of these houses have the right to do what they please with their property, and to every investor profit is the main concern. But on the other hand, the German government guarantees shelter for all who live in this country. Students, as we all well know, simply can't afford $1000 a month rent for an apartment, so these flats are the only place they have to turn. Rights of the property holder versus rights of a person to shelter: the "Besitzer gegen Besetzer'* (Owner vs Squatter). Why doesn't the German government build more student housing? They say the money Just isn't there. As in the U.S., it's there for the military, but not for your education. Another problem is where to put these dorms. Think of the entire population of all the counties in Michigan moving into Ottawa and Allegan counties and then you will know the problem Germany has with space for building. Freiburg, especially, has this problem: 2000,000 people in an area a bit smaller than Holland and its suburbs. This whole housing crisis makes me feel a bit guilty as air American student living in Germany. I live in a brand new German government-subsidized apartment complex and pay about $200 a t month in rent. That is dirt cheap here. My room (a^ingle) is slightly bigger than a Kollen Hall double and is complete with private bath and kitchenette shared with another American student who lives next door. I pay only tot for a meal at the Mensa and am covered by an insurance plan which Includes free glasses, dental work and hospitalization. The government also subsidizes two free weekend trips - one to Berlin and one to Prague. And I haven't paid a cent in taxes (other than sales tax) in Germany. , Will this situation ever occur In America? I have serious doubts. More private colleges exist in the U.S., plus

were is so mucti more, it i may, "Leoensraum." But thhTis not tq-aay^we ^an simplv ignore'the probfeni of housing for students, or even for all. Shelter is something that any government should supply for those who need it. The right to a place of shelter from the elements should be as basic as the right to express one's self. The German government must act on this principle now before it explodes - and I am afraid it will within a short time. - # The students of Germany must, however, remain under control. Destroying store windows and running rampant in the streets is no way to solve a problem. Demonstrate - yes! By all means, show your numbers and make your problems know, but riot -- no I This only shows ignorance in how to solve problems. One answer which we discussed in class here at the Institute of European Studies is for the landlords to allow the students to remain in the housing under the condition that the students renovate the houses themselves in their spare time or over summers. The landlords could supply materials and the students the labor. But for this to work the landlords must change their concern from profit to the housing problem. A solution much like this has had some success in the States where the problem was one of rundown houses owned by cities. These houses were sold by the cities for a very low price with the condition that the buyer would renovate the house within a certain amount, of time. Many neighborhoods were saved under these programs. In the same way these German flats could be saved, but profit must not be the concern of the owners for this to happen. Above all, a communication link between the ''Besitzers" and "Besetzers" must be made. The owners must stop looking at the squatters as what Mr. Wilhelm Schnock says, "characters who only terrorize;" and the squatters must stop seeing the owners as only profiteers who care nothing for the life of students. Then, and only then, can the housing shortage be solved.


X-Couritry Closes Out Home Season The Hope men's cross country team rebounded from an unsettling early Oct. performance at Notre Dame to run two strong races and reestablish themselves as the favorite in the MIAA title chase Yesterday, the Dutch hosted their strongest challanger, Calvin, at the Holland Country Club. Going into the race, the Knights were riding a 17-meet win streak (dual meets), including wins in the 79 and '80 Hope meets. Both of those years, the Dutch came back to beat Calvin in the MIAA meet and tie them for the overall championship. Hope's final home meet takes place Saturday at 11 am with Kalamazoo providing the competition. On Sat., Oct. 10, the Flying Dutch tallied 76 points to place second out of 12 teams in the Tri-State Invite, ahead of both Calvin and Albion. Baldwin-Wallace of Ohio took the meet with 55 markers. Refering to the fact that he was back in Holland guiding the women's team, Coach Bill Vanderbilt Joked, "I'm disappointed they did so well without me." But he was really encouraged that the meet was "a truer measure of our strength than Notre Dame." Hope sophomore Steve Underwood took the lead at 3 ^ miles and stretched it to an U-second victory in 25:41. Mark Northuis avoided the mud and placed 11th in 26:24. Brian Taylor followed close behind with a 26 :35 for 13th. Rick Webster nipped John Victor, who was coming back from inJury, for 25th place; both being timed in 26:53. Mark Southwell was a close 6th man (2<Hh-26:56), and Mike Schmuker (40th-27:17) rounded out the top seven with a kick that passed three Calvin runners in the last 200 yards. Other finishers in the 137-runner field were: Larry Fischer (46th-27:23), Paul Tannehill (68th-27:59), Steve Elenbaas (86th-28:23), and Dick Hoekstra (92nd-28:35) ' Last Saturday, Hope ruined Alma's homecoming by administering a 17-45

rout. Underwood took first in 26:51. After Alma squeezed in iheir first man, Hope took the next three. Victor (5th-27:19), Webster (6th-27:20) and Southwell (7th27:30) saw to that. The rest of the gang included: Crumbaugh(9th-27:38), and Vande Vorde (10th-27:39), Fischer (llth27:55), Tannehill (12th-28:03), Elenbaas (l3th-28:09), Hoekstra (17th-28:31). Looking back and looking ahead, Coach Vanderbilt quipped, "We'll be all right as long as we keep our shoes on." But, seriously, he warned against overconfidence. "There are two teams (Calvin and Albion in the MIAA) who can beat us on any given day, we always have to be at

Women's CC Have Found the Sledding Rough by Steve Underwood



" T h e league h a s really improved f r o m last y e a r , especially in those two t e a m s . " Those were Hope w o m e n ' s cross country Coach Bill Vanderbilt's words a f t e r their last two dual meets against Albion and Alma. Indeed, despite continued improvement, the h a r r i e r s h a v e found the sledding rough. Seven of nine Dutchwomen ran personal best t i m e s only to fall to the Britons tight fivesome on Oct. 10, 20- 35. On Oct. 17. it w a s a combination of depth and outstanding individuals that gave the Scots a win over Hope by an

identical score. The Dutch hosted Calvin yesterday, hoping to gain their first MIAA win. Saturday, they will m a k e their final home appearance at 11:45 a m against a partial team f r o m Kalamazoo. On Homecoming, Hope frosh Diane Boughton glided to an 18:52 victory, breaking her old school record by 14 seconds. But the visitors f r o m Albion overpowered the Dutch by taking the next five places, all within a 24-second span from 19:19 to 19:43. Yet the other Hope women ran fine races. Brenda

VanderWerff became the third Dutchwomen ever to break twenty minutes in 19:59, good for 7th. Kim Brown (20:32), Wendy Schoenmaker (20:42), Carla Johnson (20:48), and NancV Scholten (20:52) all broke 21:00 in taking the next four spots. Carol Bringman (12th-21:10), Mary Ann Marron (13th-22:03) and Sheri Johlman (24:12) also ran well. At Alma, Vanderbilt saw three different situations taking place. And he was encouraged by the fact that had Hope run just a bit faster in each instance, the meet could've been much closer.

Boughton battled the Scot's (and the MIAA's) best throughout the race before finishing a close third in 19:04. Schoehmaker and VanderWerff ran close to Alma's 3rd and 4th women, but ended up 6th (20:28) and 7th (20:31.) respectively. Brown (9th-21:00) and Scholten (10th21:05) weren't too far from Alma's fifth runner. Other Hope finishers were Marron (12th-22:07) and Bringman (13th22:39). The meet will be held at Alma on Nov 3rd. Vanderbilt is pleased that the women a r e 4 4 . . . s t r i v i n g t o do t h e i r best.. (and)..haven't lost heart."

2-0 in League Play"

by J i m Goorhouse Hope's Flying Dutchmen, capitalizing on t h e i r opponent's m i s t a k e s , find themselves with a 2-0 record in league play and a 3-3 overall record a f t e r defeating Albion 44-14 and Alma 27-19.

the half on a 15-yard interception r e t u r n by Mike Andruscak. Nelson completed the Dutch's first half scoring with two field goals, giving him three for the day.

The second half saw two m o r e scores by the Dutchmen on a 21-yard r e v e r s e by Bob Constant and another short plunge by Cain. T h e subs then took over and , although they threatened, w e r e unable to add to the final score. Holstege had another fine day on the ground, accounting for 181 yards. Jeff Neeley and Mark Spencer split the q u a r t e r b a c k i n g duties, with Neeley going 4 for 12 and Spencer 4 for 10. Neither had a touchdown pass.

Last Saturday, the Dutch travelled to Alma and needed 17 fourth q u a t e r points to record an eight point win.


Hope scored first in the g a m e on a oney a r d run by Cain, his eighth, and leagueleading, touchdown. The D u t c h m e n upped this lead to 10-0 early in the second quater on a 33-yard field goal by Nelson. The lead failed to stand up, however, as 13 second q u a r t e r points by Alma left the Dutch behind by t h r e e points at halftime. A scoreless third q u a r t e r saw Hope still behind entering the final 15 minutes of play and the g a m e stayed this way until 5:04 r e m a i n e d , when Nelson booted his second field goal of the day and his fifth in the last two g a m e s , a new Hope record, to knot the score. The Dutch then took adv a n t a g e of t w o Alma t u r n o v e r s to put the g a m e out of r e a c h , scoring touchdowns on five- yard r u n s by Spencer and Holstege. Alma scored with four seconds r e m a i n i n g to account for the final point totals.

Holstege a g a i n r e a c h e d the century m a r k , rushing for 121 y a r d s on 28 carries. In addition to this, he was n a m e d offensive player of the week in the MIAA for his p e r f o r m a n c e a g a i n s t Albion.
