Hiring policy under fire from Hope community by Jim Riekse news editor Hope College's decade old hiring policy continues to be shrouded with controversy. As many contend the college purposely ignores caniadates not of the Cristian Faith Earlier this semester copies of memos between the faculty and administration, detailing concerns about Hope s hiring policy, were acquired by the media, publicly disclosing what had been an internal debate. The math department had an interest in a few non-Christian candidates, but were having a hard time getting clarification from the administration as to whether they could invite the applicants to camP115, . We had a difficult time getting a definite answer whether the candidates were eligible, said David Carothers, chairman of the mathematics department. "We finally decided that it would be a waste of their time to come to campus, since a nonChristian had no chance of getting the position. Our experience is not atypical. Donald Cronkite, professor of biology, concedes that the biology department has had to abandon their pursuit of applicants who

Three Hope students were left with minor injuries after relations between owners of an off-campus house and their uninvited guests turned violent at a party Friday night. The altercation ensued after two men and a women, all nonHope students, refused to leave the party held at 102 14th St., dubbed "Cooper Street Pier," after being asked by residents of the house to vacate the premises. Public Safety called the Holland Police Department to the scene shorty before 2 a.m. to break up the fight. "It shouldn't have elevated to the size it d i d , " said Erich VanRavenswaay ('97).

Eliminating prejudices key to leadership

hard look at their own internalized prejudices at the Fourth Annual Black and Latino Student Leadership Conference Saturday morning in an hour-long power workshop, "Leading With Conviction." Sponsored by the Great Lakes Colleges Association, 75-100 students caravaned from Albion College, Antioch College, Denison University, Earlham College, Kenyon College, Olivet College, Wabash College and Western Michigan University to Hope for the weekend conference called "Creating Connections.'* Students spent the weekend exploring ways to leave behind a legacy of leadership, dealing with issues related to racial identity and the challenges of being a Black/Latino leader. "Being a student of color on a predominately white campus can be difficult," said Yoli Vega, director of multicultural life at Hope. "The conference gave the participating students an opportunity to interact and learn together so that they can be effective leaders— not just for their ethnic groups, but for their entire campus."

Halloween tricks and treats entertain spirits of all ages by Carrie Tennant staff reporter The leaves are falling, pumpkins are appearing everywhere, and even the witches are dusting off their broomsticks in preparation for Halloween at Hope. Many residence halls and student organizations on campus are also planning fun and philanthropic activities centered around the holiday theme. The student Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), which sponsors a resource room at Lincoln Elementary School across from Dykstra Hall, is planning to create special memories for some 20 early elementary students this Halloween. The program will include providing dinner for the children at the Kletz, pumpkin decorating, and trick-or-treating at various residence halls on campus. The CEC, which is a service-oriented organization, tries to connect emotionally/ physically impaired or learning disabled children with college students through their resource room at Lincoln Elementary. Hope students give the children extra help in school and also provide support and opportunities outside of the school day. Members say that the Halloween pro-

gram is one way that they create memorable experiences for the children. "They get excited about the littlest things 1 1. -1 • 1 1 .«« • « w •• thatA we don't even think about," said Jodi Schamback, CEC secretary. "The program is also a good idea safety-wise. Many of the children come from low socio-economic neighborhoods where trick-or-treating might not even be safe. This way, the parents can trust the candy and the people that are handing it out." "These kids may not be involved in typical school activities because of their challenges," said Meghan Terry, CEC member. "Through this Halloween eelebration, we can make them feel special,. and give them an outside activity—an opportunity to get out and interact." Terry emphasized that the children especially love coming to the Hope campus. "I think it's a big deal to let them come on campus," Terry said. "It's really excit' ing for them because they've heard a lot about the coHege, and they really like to see where we live and walk around in the buildings." Dykstra Hall is organizing its third an-

nual trick-or-treat night for all community members on Monday, Oct. 31. Students will decorate their clusters and dress in costume ^ . for the event. The cluster judged by faculty and staff to be the best-decorated for Halloween will receive an ice cream sundae party. "It's a safe place in the area for kids to go trick-or-treating," said Kristi Steketee ( ' 9 8 ) , member of the Dykstra Hall Council. "It's also good for community relations...and a lot of fun for us, too!" We wanted to do something to merge the lines between the college and the community," agreed Kristin Hintz, Dykstra Resident Director. "College students really love it too, and the kids are all so adorable that everyone has fun." For the third year in a row, Voorhees Hall residents have tackled the chilling task of transforming their basement into a haunted house. Doors open for the event at 8 pm Saturday, Oct. 29. Admission will be $2, or $1.50 for those in costume. The haunted basement will be open to the public, but children are not permitted.

Students in the college's freshman-level general chemistry laboratory course will use the computers, as will those in a course designed for non-chemistry majors and in a science course for future elementary education teachers. Seymour estimates that approximately 450 students will use the laboratory each semester. Seymour noted that the department will be monitoring closely how effective the computers prove to be. If they do prove effective— as they have, he observed, when used at other institutions—additional laboratory applications may follow. Computers might be added, for example, to the college's upper level laboratory courses. They might also include a "hypercard" information system that could provide tutorial assistance, or feature relevant video clips that highlight key ideas of the experiment. "I can envision where it could end up as much more than a computer collecting data," Seymour said. "It could become a multipurpose laboratory learning tool. It's completely open at this point." —Hope College News Service

SAC commended for quality entertainment The Social Activities Committee (SAC) at Hope College has been named one of five finalists nationwide in the voting for the "Associates' Choice Award" being presented in February by the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA). The finalists were selected from among 56 school programming organizations nominated for the award. Nominees were chosen for demonstrating professionalism in developing and presenting campus events and programs, exhibiting an understanding of and concern for attractions' needs, and creating a positive working relationship with associate members.


The nominations were made by NACA associate members—entertainers or the agencies that represent entertainers. College and university programming organizations that are members of NACA, of which there are approximately 1,200 nationwide, were eligible for nomination. SAC bears the responsibility for programming social activities of an all-campus nature at Hope, such as dances, concerts, comedians and a weekend film series. The committee also sponsors activities during Homecoming, an "All-College Sing," a "Las Vegas Night," and a Spring Festival" near the end of the spring semester.

Hope's failure to broadcast the religious component of their hiring policy to interested professors is troubling to Carothers, who fears that applicants might be wasting their time with Hope. "It seemed through our hiring process that you needed to be a Christian to be hired. This fact is not listed in our advertising for the position," Jie said. Since the hiring trend at Hope seems to exclude non-Christian professors, some faculty fear worthwhile people may be overlooked. "I think there is no question that when you place a restriction on candidates that the quality of the applicants is reduced," said William Cohen, a non-Christian professor of history. "Obviously if you place any restriction on a pool of candidates before hiring, you won't see the entire pool," Cronkite noted. Hiring for the math department is particularly difficult since many candidates are foreigners and nonChristian. "About two thirds of our candidates were ineligible last year because of their religion," said Carothers. President Jacobson admits many "...interesting and attractive candidates" are not considered, but

"...there are many able candidates who are Christian. We just have to search longer." Jacobson regards the current policy as vital to assure that the college will continue as a Christian institution. "The Board of Trustees were acutely aware that many fine colleges started as Christian colleges but lost that character due to neglecting to have a predominantly Christian faculty," he said. An informal E-mail poll conducted by Carol Simon, professor of philosophy, shows that the majority of the professors are in agreement with the idea of remaining a predominantly Christian faculty, but many professors are uncomfortable with the way the policy is being implemented. 15 professors are in favor of both the current policy and its implementation; 32 professors are in favor with the policy but are unhappy with its implementation; 25 professors find both the policy and its implementation too restrictive and needing change, while two professors responded that the written policy and its implementation are too inclusive. Some professors fear lack of religious diversity is a hindrance to a well rounded education. "Students, learn the Christian perspective on

In addition to SAC at Hope, the nominees were: the Residence Hall Program Board at the University of Akron in Ohio; Wigwam Productions at Catawba College in North Carolina; the Dinkins Student Union Program Board at Winthrop University in South Carolina; and the University Activities Board at the University of Wisconsin/ Stevens Point.

Buddhism or naturalism," said Cronkite. "I question whether that is educationally sound." "We give considerable lip service around here as to the importance of diversity, but that diversity seems to end with matters of religion," said Cohen. "That's something we need to think about." Cronkite also worries what kind of effect the policy will have on his non-Christian colleagues. "NonChristians might feel that they are unfortunate compromises, rather than the important contributors that they are," he said. Cohen, who is Jewish, responded, "I have been treated as well as one could want, and have never been slighted. On the other hand, it's not terribly comfortable thinking that I'm the only acceptable one." While the hiring controversy has ruffled the feathers of many around the campus. Professor Cronkite views the debate favorably. "The big issue is that the college is having an open and vigorous discussion. We may hurt each others feelings and occasionally stumble, but we seem to like each other enough to continue," he said. "Here I can say things in strong disagreement, and they say, 'Thank you, that was interesting.' I think that's great."

GETTING THE FACTS UP FRONT: Homosexuals and their supporters on campus speak up for gay rights.

Group for gays and lesbians lends support by Jodi McFarland features editor The Gay and Lesbian Support Group, an unofficial student organization, has appeared once again on the campus scene after a period of dormancy last year. "Gays and lesbians can feel very lonely on this campus, and it's good that they know that other people are going through the same experiences and can get support f r o m each other," said Derek Emerson, assistant director of housing and residential life and one of the unofficial contact people for students interested in joining the group. Although the group remained inactivated last year, it has existed on and off since the late '70's or early '80's, said Jane Dickie, professor of psychology and women's studies and a contact person since the group's inception. "I think it exists when there are people who want it to exist," Dickie said. "It really exists when there are people who want to meet and talk." The group meets weekly, with 10 to 12 people regularly involved, but according to member Clayton Gibson ('96), some eight more have expressed an interest in joining the group. Described by Gibson as "a bunch of people with similar interests and concerns getting together to share support," the Gay and Lesbian Support Group has asked many more faculty members to act as liaisons for students interested in making contact with the group. "This suggests how unhappy the situation is here at Hope," said Boyd Wilson, professor of religion and contact person for the group for the past six years. "I and several others must act as a buffer between the Gay and Lesbian Alliance and students who might be interested in it to protect the group from some who might try to expose them to persecute them." The issue of safety is a prime motivator for keeping intitial contact with the group one step removed. According to Gibson, a male homosexual student was beaten on campus last semester, although the incident was not reported. "There is a danger on campus to gay students," Gibson said. When the group first announced

contact people years ago, Jane Dickie received a call from a male student interested in making contact with the group. She felt "an uncomfortable feeling," and suggest that he meet with her to see if the group was right for him. The caller responded by yelling obscenities and hanging up. "That is how easy it is to target homosexuals," Dickie said. "All I was doing was standing in solidarity with them. That kind of cowardly attack is something that people on this campus are willing to do." Over fall break, fliers were hung around campus which identified the group, along with the message: "There is hope." According to Dickie, these signs were ripped down, while others had the word "fag" written on them. The signs featured the upside down pink triangle, a symbol which was used by the Nazis to brand the flesh of homosexuals. The connotation of the symbol now signifies gay pride. The group is for support, but it is not a recruiting organization, Dickie said. "I think it's a lot more honest and has served the function as a consciousness-raising group," Dickie said. "It's also for people who are kind of c o n f u s e d , people who struggle with their sexual orientation, and that can mean a number of things," Emerson said. "How important it is for Hope College to take its Christianity seriously, and provide a welcoming feeling for all of its students," Dickie said. "It's easy for gay people to be pushed away by the church, by the tradition of hate, and that serves no one's purpose, certainly not God's," Gibson said. Other faculty contacts for the student-run group are Charles Aschbrenner and Wes Ball of the music department, Jane Bach of the English department, Sociology professors Don Luidens and Jim Piers, religion professor Allen Verhey, and art professor William Mayer. "I think that however people feel about homosexuality, this is an issue on which honest Christians can be allowed to disagree, without the 'because I don't agree, I'm going to threaten you,"' Dickie said.

Dan Hansen As it stands, Hope College has been hiring predominantly Christian professors since 1984, in accordance with a policy set down by the Board of Trustees. This policy, which has the full support of President Jacobson, is in tune with Hope College's mission, religious heritage, and affiliation, and not only deserves, but needs to be kept. First of all, let's narrow the focus to issues of real importance and relevance. What is relevant is the meaning and purpose of this college and what it strives to stand for and accomplish. What isn 7 relevant is the specific religious beliefs or values of the current student body. This isn't to say that students should have no input at all in the selection of professors. It simply means that any general hiring policy cannot be subject to whims and changes in the student body's religious makeup to produce a clear mission and objective. First of all, Hope college's mission is to offer education "...in the context of the historical Christian faith." Education at any college is largely defined by the strengths and areas of expertise of its professors. Hiring non-Christian professors, therefore, would lead to an education not at all in the context

of the historical Christian faith. The world views of Christians and of secular society are radically different and it is not genuinely possible to fully understand and teach from the Christian world view if one is not a Christian. It is sort of a "it takes one to know one" situation. Next, is Hope's religious heritage. Page three of the college catalog states that "[Hope's] great religious heritage is expressed through a dynamic Christian community of students and teachers vitally concerned with a relevant faith that changes lives and transforms society." Hope College doesn't aim just to help students change society, it strives to build a faith that changes lives and society in the name of Christ. There is a world of difference between the two, and though most non-Christian professors would certainly care for their students, they would not be able to help and guide in a student's Christian walk. Third, Hope is affiliated with the Reformed Church of America. We, as a college, openly declare our relationship and dedication to the RCA. To go back to hiring nonChristian professors would be a slap in the face of the commitment that we have made.

This brings up a very practical point on which I will be blunt. Though this debate is really over the future of Christianity at Hope College, it must be mentioned that a lot of scholarship money and financial aid comes from RCA members and all alumni of all denominations who would be very disappointed and angry at the repealing of the policy. They would undoubtedly act accordingly. I hope you're saving up. Lastly, there is no shortage of Christian professors out there. Hope College has survived about a decade now, hiring only Christian professors and its academic standing has only improved . We need not change our policies for any purely academic concerns. In conclusion, Hope's Christian hiring policy is one that must be kept. It is necessary to uphold our mission, keep our religious heritage, and honor our affiliation. It is scary to think that a sizable chunk of Hope's future Christianity would be arbitrarily thrown up for grabs under any rationale. The blunt truth of it is whether you are a Christian or not, Hope College is a Christian college and keeping this policy is a crucial step toward keeping it that way.

Hope College's Board of Trustees put in place a hiring policy in 1984 which calls for a predominantly Christian faculty. No non-Christian faculty have been hired in the past eight years. When asked whether Hope College should hire only Christian professors, Hope students said...

Campus Pulse

If I am buying an ice cream cone and ask for a mixture of predominantly Heavenly Hash with a little bit of Rocky Road thrown in, I expect to get a little Rocky Road. It had always been my understanding that predominantly meant most, but not all. However, Hope College seems to have amended the word's usage in the last decade. The Board of Trustees set Hope's faculty recruitment policy into place in 1984, with the intention of hiring "predominantly" Christian professors to insure Hope's continuation as a Christian college. Yet in the last eight years, not one non-Christian candidate has made the cut at Hope. If the college has no intention of hiring a non-Christian then they might as well just say so, and stop wasting the time of otherwise qualified applicants. "Hey friend, great application, no chance, so we'll just stop stringing you along." What is sad about this process is that we never get to see a large part of the talent pool, since it is eliminated before the search even begins. Even President Jacobson admits that some "interesting and attractive candidates" are left by the wayside. Hope College definitely hires worthy professors, but I question whether some top prospects are ever even considered. Call me blasphemous, but I don't think I would be terribly distraught if I discovered that my chemistry professor wasn't a Christian. I go to chemistry to learn about reactions and molarity, not to be given a sermon. I want teachers who can best enlighten me on their particular subject, and I would be

upset to learn that a quality teacher was passed over for a holier teacher. Obviously I would be distraught if one of my non-Christian professors spent ten minutes a day explaining why Christianity was wrong and that I should instead worship wood nymphs or fertility goddesses. Hope would probably be well advised to avoid such a person. As long as any non-Christian faculty hired understood the Christian mission of the school and didn't seek to alter that mission, then there shouldn't be a problem. Back to my ice cream. I want a college with a mainly Christian perspective (Heavenly Hash), but I would also like to witness other ideologies and be challenged in my views, something I can chew on (Rocky Road). Everything I'm being taught, whether it be about Hinduism or homosexuality, is from a Christian perspective. It is always enriching to see an opposing viewpoint to acquire a fuller understanding of an issue. With current hiring policies, alternative viewpoints seem to be growing more rare. It would also be a shame if Hope students emerged from college without having put considerable thought into why they believe what they do. Other points of view serve to deepen our understanding of what we hold as true. When a professor challenges my view on an issue, say evolution, I must reach down deep to refute his or her view. I only grow stronger from this experience. So I will happily eat my Heavenly Hash, but please let's not forget the taste of Rocky Road.

F. Y. / . OKLAHOMA CITY— Earlier this year, a Tulsa lawmaker named Betty Boyd shared with her colleagues her harrowing battle with breast cancer. Her speech has resulted in a measure on the Nov. 8 ballot proposing a one percent tax on movies, concerts, and other entertainment to raise money for breast cancer research. The National Breast Cancer Coalition calls the tax one of a kind. LOS ANGELES— Veteran actor Burt Lancaster died of a heart attack Thursday after almost four years of frequent hospitalization. Lancaster, 80, became famous in such renowned movies as "From Here to Eternity," "Elmer Gantry," and "The Bird Man of Alcatraz." He was seen most recently in 1989's "Field of Dreams" with Kevin Costner before suffering a stroke in 1990. SEOUL, South Korea—At least 32 people are reported dead after a large section of bridge collapsed during morning rush hour Friday. A segment of the four-lane Songsu bridge plunged 50 ft. into the swiftmoving Han River taking a packed city bus, a mini-van, and several cars with it. Rescuers rushed to the scene but their task was complicated by the muddy water. The bridge had been criticized in recent news reports as a possible safety risk. NEW DELHI, India— Tribesmen enmeshed in a violent turf war killed 37 of their rivals Wednesday by locking them inside a bus and pushing them into a gorge. "It was a bizarre case of mass murder," Director General of Police Srinath Mishra said of the attack. The feud between Naga rebels and the pro-government Kuki tribe has left 300 civilians dead in the past year.

Tacklin' Tough Issues In our first issue of The Anchor, it stated in the "Explanation from the Editor" that "The Anchor is interested in all sides of all issues." So far this year, we have done our best to prove that to our readers by delving into some of the larger, more complicated issues confronting our campus, including gender issues, racism in the Hope Community ana campus safety. This week, we continue to focus on our critical reporting by covering stories about homosexual awareness and support on Hope'S campus, on-campus racism and the Aaministration's policy concerning the hiring of Christian professors. As journalists, these hard-hitting, emotionally charged issues intrigue and excite us. However, they challenge us as well. It is difficult, to say the least, to report on both sides of a controversy and not to let your personal opinion on the topic at hand shine through in your articles. But, as they say, "somebody's got to do it." As that somebody. The Anchor staff promises to do whatever it takes to 1) keep our readers accurately informed to the best of our knowledge and capability; 2) to cover all sides of the issues at hands; and 3) to address these issues in both a timely and professional manner. On that same note, we as an organization, hope that our readers take advantage of what The Anchor has to offer them. We hope that you see The Anchor as not only a communicative tool to express your ideas and opinions, but also as a conduit for peaceful examination of the issues. We want you to look at the school paper as a way to educate and inform yourself about the tough ' g issues that are facing our campus in a calm and intelligent manner.. In addition, add we hope that you respond to the issues at hand, whether it take the form or of ia letter to the editor, or your involvement in any other activity which you think may improve or clarify a controversy. Finally, we encourage you to remember that in a controversy, it is almost always more productive to attack issues than it is to attack people. A coward is somebody who tries to break another person down for all to see, but a hero is somebody who is able to break a controversy down for all to understand.

Concerned group responds to Robert's letter Dear Editor, We are writing in response to the personal reflection found in the Kollen Hall computer lab written by Theo Robert. We all like to think Hope is a good school and are proud to attend but something has been going on around our campus that we are very ashamed of: racism. Everyone attending Hope should have an equal opportunity to receive an education in an environment that they feel safe and accepted in and apparently this isn't happening for a number of students on (yes our) campus. We were shocked to find out about the KKK incident that happened in one of our Hope College residence halls and the lack of action taken by our Admin-

istration when a complaint was aired. By not dealing with the situation (and many I'm sure we don't know about) we support these kind of racist attitudes on our campus, in our residence halls, in our classrooms, and in our students. Shouldn't we as RD's, RA's, Administrators and students address the needs of all students attending Hope, not just the minority? We as a campus need to be sensitive to the needs of every student on our campus and do our best to uphold everyone's rights to an education in a safe environment especially those who are in the minority. We believe it is not enough to just "talk the talk." If this campus is committed to an environment free of racism, we must "walk the walk" too. So we suggest the following ac-

tions: 1) that the Administrative Affairs Board begin immediately to fashion a Racial Harassment Policy; 2) that RD's and RA's begin anti-racism workshops; 3) that the campus Life Board sponsor an open forum to discuss the issues. If we are a caring institution, as we proport to be, let us listen carefully to those who feel marginalized here, then let us act in solidarity with them to bring positive change.

Student studying abroad addresses racial tensions Dear Editor,


Many times, people went so far as to write KKK on my door, and to actually burn material that was posted on it. The Black Coalition and I had a meeting with the President of Hope College about racial issues, and nothing was done. I continue to get the writings on my door. I would go into my experience with the football and baseball teams, but it will only make me more upset. You could ask the other black students that played...Oops, I forgot, they have all transferred because they were screwed also. To make my college experience and our future minority students transition here at Hope better, I would appreciate the cooperation of students and the administration of Hope College in helping me handle these situations.

Hope students are not from Holland, and for them to go and live at Hope for I am a fourth year Hope student nine months without interacting with currently studying in Freiburg, Ger- the Holland community makes as much many. After reading the Sept. 14 edi- sense as for me to study a year in Gertion of The Anchor, "Student Addresses many without being able to speak GerRacism on Campus," I was not at all man.

On another point, Hope students are looked at as bigots by many people. I don't mean the kind of bigot that openly expresses it. I mean the kind of bigot that only sees what he wants to see and really doesn't care what happens in the surrounding minority community. The kind of bigot who says "those people shouldn't..." or "it's not safe in that part of town." We are still thinking in terms of color; we simply don't say it. And yes, I have heard many Hope students say negative raciallyrelated remarks about the surrounding Hispanic population. In addition to academic excellence, Hope College has earned a reputation for upper middle class, politically narrow minded, religiously narrow minded, ultra conservative, snobbish students who have been sheltered for most of their lives. In the last three years J haven't seen much to disprove that. Finally, I wonder if anyone at Hope really cares what happens five streets outside of their "Hope College community" until it happens to them. I wonder how many more Hope students will be assaulted in the next five years. I wonder how many more people will be shot until one is carrying a Hope I.D. Sincerely, Collin Anderson ('95)

Art prof wins commission to paint for the majors By Becky Ponka staff reporter Professor Bruce McCombs of Hope's art department was recently commissioned with the prestigious job of painting art that will grace the walls of the owner's suite of Cleveland Indian's new home Jacobs Stadium. Most artists competed for the honor of having their art hung in the stadium. About 12 artists were asked to paint a particular cite in the stadium and one of the 12 paintings was chosen to portray that cite in the stadium. This process is repeated for the other areas of the stadium as well. Those who are not chosen are paid for their efforts, though McCombs says that the pay is little. "1 had a handicap by not living in Cleveland," McCombs said. He did not compete because it would have been difficult to travel back and forth enough to do a complete job in competition. Last June, McCombs was fortunate and the commission came to him instead. McCombs, a Cleve-

land native, has shown pieces of art in the Cleveland area before. The artwork scout remembered McCombs' work from a previous show. The particular piece he had in mind was a painting McCombs had done of the sign of the Hanson-Rexall drugstore, now the 8th Street Grill, in downtown Holland. The scout wanted the same angle portrayed in a painting of the Cleveland Indian's sign that he had seen portrayed in the Rexall sign, with a more exaggerated perspective. McCombs began work right away anyway, he said. McCombs traveled to Cleveland to take snapshots of the sign he was asked to paint, and faxed three or four sketches to Cleveland upon his return. They informed him which one they wanted him to paint. McCombs then began work on the 40-by-60 watercolor. Although he was commissioned to do only one, McCombs painted two versions; one by day, in which the sign takes up almost the whole

Hope students balance college life Foodstock '94 entertains and ROTC with military precision to feed Holland's hungry by Jodi McFarland features editor While many students pay their tuition bills with loans, scholarships, and grants, Jeremy Dobos ('97) and Chandler Pohl ('98) are covering some of their tuition costs with scholarships from the U.S. Army. Both students are in ROTC, the Reserve Officer Training Corps, which is a system for training the military officers of the future. With Dobos' scholarship, the army pays 80% or $8,000 of his tuition, whichever comes first, for the next three years. In exchange, Dobos will serve in the army for two to four years following his graduation, and then four more years in the Army Reserves. According to Dobos, ROTC scholarships do more than just allow students to graduate with fewer debts. "At first I was just doing it for the money," Dobos said. "Now that I've been doing it for a year, I think its molded me into a better person. Even if I lost my scholarship, I'd still do it."

Pohl said that he could not have afforded to attend a private school if not for his scholarship. "It's more enjoyable than I thought it'd be," he said, adding that he would recommend it to other students. "There's a lot of opportunities to receive scholarships right now, especially for nursing," Dobos said. Every Thursday, Dobos and Pohl trek down to Western Michigan University, where they take a lab at 3:15 p.m. to learn drill and ceremony, and then go to class, where they are instructed in tactics, leadership, and survival. They return to campus that evening, arriving at Hope around 8 p.m. Although Dobos and Pohl have had the chance to fire automatic weapons such as M-16's, M-60's, and M-203 grenade launchers, they've learned much more in their classes than gun play. "I think it's helped me in the regard that I've learned about being a leader," Dobos said. "I'm not afraid to stand up for what I believe in." The scholarships which Dobos and Pohl were awarded are not

need-based. They are based entirely on merit—the leadership potential of each student outranks academic performance. "Grades are not the most important thing in ROTC," Pohl said. "It's based on how you relate to other people." The scholarships are broken down into prioritized majors. Nursing scholarships will pay for all four years of schooling to winners, because nurses are now at the top of the Army's list of needed scholars. Second in demand are engineering majors, followed by doctors. Being in ROTC does not put Dobos and Pohl at risk of being unable to finish school if the nation should go to war. The Army cannot call upon its ROTC students to serve until after they have graduated. "Until you actually graduate from college, you are a student," Dobos said. In cases where scholarship winners are against fighting in a conflict, they are able to become conscientious objectors, but must repay the Army for their education.. For anyone interested in joining ROTC or applying for an ROTC scholarship, contact Jeremy Dobos.

by Jodi McFarland features editor Hot on the heels of the summer event Woodstock '94 comes Foodstock, a two day event featuring a variety of entertainers and acts with an admission cost of three non-perishable food items. The brainchild of Holland resident Tony Reed, the areawide project was initiated to collect food for area food pantries, and will take place December 10 and 11 at the Civic Center. "We are hoping to get so much food we have to ship some of it off to West Michigan Gleaners (a food bank in Grand Rapids)," Reed said. The event will feature a variety of acts, including musicians, jazz artists, and possibly even a some jugglers or comedians. The Holland Hunger Coalition will accept both food items and personal hygiene items such as toothpaste and soap. They have plans to station some 300 barrels


for collection of the donations in locations throughout the Holland area. Reed hopes that Foodstock will catch on in other cities. "We hope to put Foodstock together as a national event," Reed said. "We hope that it could help in an international way a few years down the road." The Hunger Coalition, which is comprised of the Community Action House, Salvation Army, the Holland City Mission, and focal church and food pantries, will also be staging smaller side events for food collection as well. They have plans to set up caroling teams in Westshore Mall, and the Star Theatre will be holding a family film day, in which food and hygiene items will be accepted for admission. Reed said. Students are encouraged to support the efforts to raise much needed food supplies for low income and emergency needs by attending Foodstock '94, or by placing food items in bins around campus.

Visiting poets combine forces in Opus reading by Amy Vivio staff reporter Well-known poets Eavan Boland and Heather McHugh will present a reading titled "Fog at the Edge of the World" at the Knickerbocker Theatre on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 7 p.m. Their presentation is the second Opus Visiting Writers Series event of the season. Eavan Boland has been called Ireland's premier woman poet. Her latest collection is titled In a Time of Violence. She is well-regarded for how she delineates her conservative Irish upbringing, and how she combines both delicacy and difficulty within her works. Boland also does not shy away from representing her gender, as she willingly explores her role as a woman Irish poet. An article about her work in The Nation c o n c l u d e s : "As she squarely confronts the reader with everyday acts, you don't have to be Irish to understand that her messages point towards a future morality a long way off....one in which

Music department kicks off Faculty Recital Series by Sufjan Stevens arts & entertainment editor For $20 or more you can purchase nosebleed tickets at DeVos Hall to hear reknowned soprano Laura Floyd perform with the Grand Rapids Symphony; or you can pay absolutely nothing, get front row seats and hear her perform at Hope college through the 1994 Faculty Recital Series. In fact, Floyd and other talented faculty were included in last Sunday's first faculty recital program of the year, p e r f o r m i n g b e f o r e a packed Wicher's auditorium. The afternoon's most distinctive performance was Claude Baker's 20th century work "Omaggi e Fantasie," performed by Edward Mallet, tuba, and Jun Okada, piano. Characterized by eerie harmonics (holding the piano string while pressing the note), dissident chords, creative methods of percussion and breathy chanting. Baker's piece lingers between the lines of genius orchestration and senseless noise-making. With the use of an oblong mute. Mallet produced a variety of sounds, ranging from obnoxious snorts to melancholy drones. Okada utilized every part of the piano, creating a complex mass of sounds by

using padded drumsticks on the body of the instrument and plucking the strings inside the piano's shell. "It's more of an athletic event for her," Mallet said of Okada, who maintained all sense of control during her frantic display of banging and plucking. The work itself was an expression of Baker's 1 appreciation to several of his musical mentors, among , of which were George Crumb V and Bela Bartok. "It was his way of bidding farewell to those who inspired him," Mallet said. The Stradivari Duo, Mihai and Deborah Craioveanu, opened the recital with a flawless performance of Mozart's "Duo for G Major for Violin and Viola," K. 423. On viola, Deborah Craioveanu served predominately as the foundation, often providing rich chords and bright harmonization. Mihai Craioveanu displayed his usual enthusiasm on violin, climbing endless scales and driving through gallant arpegv gios and trills with an undying, heedless passion. The opening allegro is characterized by short, vigorous phrases in which each layer of music is quickly showcased in sparkling splendor before resolving almost instantaneously; transitions are

minimal and allow the work to propel through every last motif with few moments of breath, a technique which captivated and excited the audience. The brief adagio contrasts t ev ^ i g o r o u s allegro; its S O f % stair-step melodies and pasa n s r sjve echoes Mozart's i r a ÂŽ . abilities as a genius of all I I P levels of composition. The final rondo allowed the Craioveanus to display their intrinsic performance capabilities through a network of impeccable musical communication that has become the envy of many professional duos. Contrasting familiar classical modes often found in Mozart's work, Laura Floyd, soprano, and Deborah Craioveanu, violin, shared a collection of stark Hungarian folksongs by Matyas Seiber. Floyd revealed a sullen facet of her nature in the dark "Lament," in which dpwtfi-out vocal tones and a sensitivMKxt combine with austere tone colors on the violin to touch the heart of any listener. The flighty "Quarrel" and short "Farewell" are personally engrossing; Floyd maintained brevity of exposition without sacrificing effect. The final "Soldier's Song," which expresses the grief of Hungarian soldiers marching to Rumania, solidifies its

effect with colorful images and passionate exclamations. "Weep, ah weep, you weeping willows. Bending o'er the shoulder of my love," the author writes, exposing a depth of perception and a breadth of sorrow. Floyd sustained her stark guise throughout the four songs, while her moving performance was nothing less than uncommon in a piece that pervades with profound melancholy. In place of the regularly scheduled woodwind trio performance, the Stradivari Duo, accompanied by pianist Joan Conway, performed Moritz Moszkowski's "Suite in G Minor," Op. 71 as a grand finale. The work pulsates with musical potency, often expressed in the forms of chromatic motifs, mesmerizing melodies and a variety of tone colors. The work is emersed in virtually constant and almost unmanageable motion, a distinction that often creates a problem for an unprepared performer. Not surprisingly, the players presented the piece with an unusual ease, while listeners found themselves caught in a comfortable trance by the natural extension of purely romantic sounds and feelings, Program II of the series will be on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 4 p.m. in Wichers Auditorium. All concerts within the series are free of charge.

Hope alumni exhibition displays 60 years of talent by Sufjan Stevens arts & entertainment editor Hope College Alumni from the Class of 1932 through the Class of 1992 will have artwork featured in the currently running 1994 Alumni Exhibition, which will continue through Nov. 20. Works included in the exhibition range from detailed wood sculptures to formal oil paintings to more abstract, multi-dimensional works; a variety of subjects and materials are displayed to emphasize the diverse orientation of Hope's art program. Co-sponsored by the college's Alumni Association and the department of art, the exhibition includes 41 works by 27 former Hope students.

The works include Carol Lambert's ('67) "Shadow Spirit," a dark assemblage which utilizes stacked d o m i n o e s to create a shrine-like image, and Janet Dyer's ( 7 5 ) plaintive oil landscape titled "Road, Cornwall." Jack Krum's ('94) picturesque watercolor of Dimnent Chapel is awe-inspiring, while William Kisken's (*54) detailed wood carving of a northern parula is equally exceptional. The 1994 Alumni Exhibition is one component of the college's "1994 Alumni Arts' Competition," designed to showcase the work of Hope alumni in the visual and literary arts.

our humanity toward one another is evenhanded." Heather McHugh will be a Visiting Fellow/Writer-in-Residence at Hope. She is the author of five collections of poetry, the most recent titled Hinge and Sign: Poems 19681993." To be a writer 'with' a reader is rather like being, oneself, of two minds, at every turn: hinge and sign," she says in its preface. McHugh is very aware of her reader, and this makes her especially responsive to an audience. Her work has appeared in many anthologies and in such journals as American Poetry Review and Harper's. In addition to the reading at the Knickerbocker in downtown Holland, the two poets will be speaking on campus. Eavan Boland will be speaking to the "Encounter With Cultures" class on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at noon in Graves 102. Visitors are welcome. Heather McHugh will be giving a public lecture Thursday, Nov. 3, in Peale Science Center room B50. Both poets' works are available at the Hope-Geneva Bookstore and other area booksellers.

Vocals dominate student recital by Becky Ponka staff reporter The sound of music filled Wichers Auditorium last Thursday when the music department sponsored the second student recital of the year. Vocal performance' was prominent in the recital with songs by Kathleen Arnold ('94), Teresa Deer ('95), Anctte Cseri ('95) and Laura Beth Snoap ('95). Arnold and Deer captivated the crowd by singing.their songs in French. Arnold performed M Oh9quand je dors" by Franz Liszt and Deer performed two pieces: "Beau Soir" by Claude M Debussy and chanson w d'Amour by Gabriel Fauve. Cseri, a German-born student and a theater and music double major, shared three works in her native tongue. The first, "Der Ganz zum Liebchen" by Johannes Brahms, is about a man who is searching for his loved one. The second song, tfAch, wussten's die Blumen" by Geheimes Reisiger, expresses deeply romantic feelings: a i f only the flowers knew my heart was wounded then they could cry along with me." The last song was an emotional aria, "Mein Herr Marquis" by Johann Strauss, which tells about a woman who is laughing at a man who thinks he is a "lady's man." Cseri chose the works because they were songs her mother used to sing to her. Snoap sang more traditional, uplifting works: "The Cloths of Heaven" by Thomas F. Dunhill and Richard Hageman's "Animal Crackers," a comical work in which the writer expresses that animal crackers and cocoa are his favorite things to eat Instrumental performances were given by Julie Klopp ('96), Sarah Wentzloff ('97), and Ryan Wilcox ('95). A new batch of musicians will showcase their talents on November 10 at 7 p.m. in Dimnent Chapel at the next student recital.

Thieves' Carnival tackles poignant themes with wit and eloquence UHMnMNM by Rob Abbott staff reporter The frenzied and oft-heated action within the opening production of Thieves' Carnival last Friday was a pleasant contrast to the crisp fall air wafting outdoors beforehand. The theatre department's splendid production took us to a slightly w a r m e r setting in turn-of-the-century Vichy, France for an evening of poignant comedy, energetic action, and madcap misunderstanding. Presentations will continue to run tonight through Saturday at 8 p.m. in DeWitt Theatre. A clarinet concerto swells at the opening of the show as the not-to-be-missed set (kudos to Richard Smith on another breathtaker) fills with a spectrum of the summer residents of the Riviera— from English aristocracy to opportunistic and wide-eyed pickpockets. Director Daina Robins' production of Thieves' Carnival is just that— a carnival of color and a physical and classist comedy. Playwright Jean Anouilh presents piercing conflicts between wistful, romantic idealism and the sobering reality of complacent, glided shallowness. The story-line is warmly predictable: a trio of bumbling grifters puts the moves on a rich and seemingly oblivious family, only to be foiled by the family's high-handed old matriarch, who is playing a game of her own. Elisabeth Owens ('97) is brilliant as Lady Hurf, the overbearing aunt who masterminds this romantic comedy of errors. Owens drew laughs over and above what was written for her in the script, showing a remarkable interpretation of her character, right down to hilarious facial 'mannerisms and the shrill, neurotic voice of a rich old lady. Lady Hurf and her scatterbrained husband Edgard, deftly

played by Michael Klynstra (*96) are set upon in the opening scene by the play's comic relief—the three thieves. The trio's calculating leader is played by Brooke Sherrod ('97) who brought electricity to the comedy of the thieve's scenes. Nathanael Buckley ('97) energetically portrayed the bullheaded yes-man of the group; Rob Angus ('96) played the sensitive, upstart one who becomes one-half of the play's key romance. The other half is Juliette, Lady Hurf's niece played by Jennifer Mancini ('97). Juliette is the hopelessly romantic, idealistic role, surrounded by the gilded facades and cynicism of old money. Contrasting this idealism is Eva, Juliette's cousin played by Collette Fouch ( ' 9 8 ) . Eva is the epitome of wealthy boredom—the same boredom that motivates Lady Hurf to play with the thieves as though they were "marionettes." The cast was rounded out by two bumbling suitors who served to further complicate things, played with a genuine broadness and raucous authenticity by Daniel Hoag ('98)and Russ Lundberg ('95). . Kevin Burgun ('98) and James Palmer ('98) were exceptional as the town crier and policeman. We've heard the whole v whimsical story before. So had Anouilh, who probably thought it was a bit predictable as well. Thieves' Carnival^ however, is refreshingly penetrating and memorable—which makes this opus more than whimsical. Thieves' Carnival speaks to us all about really living. Lady Hurf questions whether existing is living: do we truly know life and its fullness—and if not, which "marionettes" are we playing with to divert ourselves? Juliette and Eva, the sighing princesses, show the two conflicting sides of their aunt. Juliette conjures the young Lady Hurf, full of life and enthusiasm;

A CARNIVAL OF EMOTIONS: Juliette, played by Jennifer Mancini ('97), unfolds her desire to marry Gustaff, played by Robert Angus ('96), as her aunt (Elisabeth Owens '97), and others (Michael Klynstra '96 and Collette Fouch '98) look on. and Eva, the non-person she's become. Said Eva to Juliette, "I feel like an old woman beside you sometimes...you are the only one who is alive in this house." Even the costumes related this contrast. Juliette wore nothing but a neutral dress in primary colors, while Eva's only "life" exists on the outside—a screaming teal thing crested with jewels. Costume designer Michelle Bombe's work blended seamlessly with the set, the actors, and most importantly, the sub-text and themes of the play. Richard Smith, outdoing himself, brought the space of the DeWitt theatre to life. Although

Tarantino stretches himself, both as an actor and a storyteller, yet he still gives his fans what they yearn to see. Absolutely outrageous humor, for example (highlighted by Christopher Walken's anal retentive, so to speak, description of a pocket watch's journey), pops up where you would least expect it, either emphasiz• ^ ing or adding color to Taratino's violence. John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, and Bruce Willis make up the heart of an all-star cast whose acting is beyond reproach. No one steals the show here, but Travolta and Willis give uncharacteristically sympathetic performances which re-establish their sagging careers. Only 1990's "Parenthood" contains acting, in a large ensemble cast, that similarly provides each character with his own unique personality and redeemable characteristics. None of "Pulp Fiction's" characters find themselves so mired in the hatred and disgrace that surrounds their lives that they do not have at least one iota of decency within them. With its lack of clear-cut good vs. bad subtexts, the film makes for a very malleable subject of interpretation. Finally its lack of narrative creates a certainly structurally obscure accomplishment. In addition to being the "breakthrough" film for a director audiences hopefully have not heard the last of, "Pulp Fiction" is a truly glorious "soft, moist, shapeless mass of matter."

infinitely functional and piercingly appropriate, the set of Thieves' Carnival was a carnival for the eyes, fittingly dwarfing the actors as they played out an essentially petty game. The game was underscored by perhaps the most delightful element of the theatrical environment.The recorded clarinet music which opened each act was continued live throughout by omnipresent Elizabeth Carrol ('95), whimsically commenting on and reacting to the action in the play. Indeed, each element made just as important a contribution to the evening as Anouilh himself did.

Satisfying in essential proportion and form, cast, staff and crew collaborated to do artistic justice to the playwright's work and genuinely relate his themes to the viewer. Ultimately, Thieves' Carnival. will provide an evening of stimulation on every level and a unique opportunity to appreciate and support quality theatre.

S roars

Dutch impressive in victory


Greg Paplawsky

by Glyn Williams staff reporter In the world of sports it is extremely important to bounce back after a devastating loss that should have been won in all meanings of the word. The Hope Flying Dutch volleyball team did just that Friday night, October 21, even after they lost a terribly emotional game with Alma 15-8,15-3,12-15,12-15,1511. The Dutch,17-10 (6-5 in M1AA) defeated the visiting Olivet Comets, 15-8, 15-7,15-5. The Dutch, in their last home game of the season opened the game up amazingly fast, going on a 6-1 run, and then finishing the match later with an 8 point run. The second match of the game was the most competitive of the three, as Olivet came back from being down 14-3, and made the Dutch work hard for their win. The final score of the second match was 15-7. The 1-21 (1-10 in MIAA) Comets could never quite catch up with the Dutch in the final match after Hope jumed off on a 9 point run. Michelle Werkman ('96) had 10 kills, Kuria Van Wieran ('98) had nine kills, Beth Hozee ('96) had 27 assists, and Sara Keeler ('97) had three aces. Last Wednesday, against Alma, Hope struggled to win, but were unable to ovecome the Scots. As was mentioned before, Hope lost 15-8, 15-3, 12-15, 12-15, 15-11. Werkman had 12 kills, four blocks, and three aces, Eliabeth De Haan ('98) had 10 digs, and both Marcie Bujack ('96) and Hoezee had three aces apiece. "We played good, but we just did not come out ready for the Alma game. We just can't seem to pull

BLOCK THIS: Wendy Evert ('95) fires a bullet in hopes of dashing Olivet's morale even further. off these five match games," said Coach Amber Warners. Hope will finish their season next weekend in the Midwest Tournament, which will feature some of the best volleyball programs in the nation. If, and only if, Hope can win this tournament, the team will have a chance of advancing into extended season play.

"We must come out ready. If we come out ready to play, we can beat anybody in the MIAA and anyone in the tournament. We almost beat one of the top ranked teams not too long ago," said coach Warners. The team is incredibly young, as Hope has only one player who will not be back next year due to graduation.

The misfire later set up for recovery was wasted.

Hope's only other touchdown came late in the fourth quarter, when Bays ran the ball in for one yard. He finished the game eight of 14 for 89 yards, one touchdown pass, and three interceptions. Hope's total offense was a lowly 209 yards, as they were only able to pound out 114 yards on the ground. Hope's defense did not make it easy for Albion, as they limited the Britons to 349 yards, as compare to their average of 491 yards per game. Ames had 14 tackles, recovered a fumble, and picked off a pass, and Kevin Valdes ('96) had 12 tackles and an interception for the Hope cause.

The Flying Dutch women's soccer team was more than ready to face the visiting Olivet Comets Saturday, as they controlled the game and came away with a victory unscathed. Hope flew through the grass of Buys Athletic Field for an amazing 7-0 victory, increasing their record to 9-5-1 (6-4-1 in MIAA). Hope's offense also served as their defense, as the Flying Dutch limited Olivet from having the ball on their side of the field to a putridly low of 5:23, out of 45:00. Hope jumped onto the board almost right away, as Tracy Phelps ('97) rolled a goal in with 41:44 left in the first half. Hope then knocked in two goals within the last six minutes of the half, making the score 3-0 at halftime. In the first half, Hope got an impeccable 40 shots off toward the goal, while Olivet

It was a dark week my friends. This would have been World Series week had the baseball strike not done away with the normal happiness the championship of baseball brings. The players and owners have robbed us all of the almost divine experience the World Series delivers year after year. Without the World Series to captivate our imaginations it seems appropriate that we look back to a time when baseball was still a game, and to a man who was the greatest pitcher the • game has ever seen. The man was the fabulous Satchel Paige. • Satchel was the greastest pitcher ever to hurl a baseball, even though he played in the Major leagues only at the very end of his career with St. Louis due to fact that the color barrier in the majors had not been broken during Satch's glory days. Satchel played most of his career in the Negro leagues with the Pittsburgh Crawfords and the Kansas City Monarchs. Standing six foot three on nearly transparent legs, with barely 180 pounds on his frame, he seemed more a ghost than a man, but Satchel's fastball made him into the feared pitcher of his time, he threw it at two speeds: hard and harder. He had names for all his pitches, "Little Tom," was a medium fastball; "Long Tom," the Fastball; "the Barber," a pitch that goes high and tight and shaves the batters chin. This bag of pitches propelled him to be feared by batters and most sought after by owners. Over his career Satchel • worked at least 2,500 games, pitching 125 games a year for most of his life, and pitching five to seven days a week without rest. He has won around 2,000 of those games with an estimated 250 shutouts and 45 no-hitters. During the winter. Satchel would play ball in Central America, accepting the highest offer from the various clubs. As an American he was expected to win most of his games. In 1931 in Cuba the realization that he might lose never entered into the minds of the fans. If he ever fell behind in a ball game a hush would fall over the crowd and the glint of machete blades could be seen all around. After twenty-four straight wins he fell very behind in a ball game, and his teammates started talking away in Spanish. "Speak English brothers!" Paige cried out helplessly. "I is with you!" Satchel ended up losing the

game. "I didn't wait," he said. "I started yellin' Polices! Policies! and then I began flyin' around the infield with the fans flyin' behind. They caught up with me at second base but the polices was a couple of jumps in the lead and we stood 'em off." Satchel was as highly regarded in the States as he was in Central America. Once in Oakland a Yankee scout was checking out Joe DiMaggio in a game against Satchel and a bunch a high school players Paige had gotten together. Satchel worked his magic allowing only two runs to the major league prospects, but ended up losing two to one. DiMaggio got only one hit, a hopper that Paige lost in the dusk. Later that night the scout wired New York to tell of • DiMaggio's skill: "DIMAGGIO ALL WE HOPED HE'D BE. HIT SATCH ONE FOR FOUR." The Crawford's not only had the greatest pitcher in Paige, they also had the greatest hitter in Negro League history, and possibly in baseball history in the person of Josh Gibson. All the people fortunate enough to see Gibson play proclaimed him to be better than Babe Ruth. As teammates Satchel and Josh always wondered who would win in a head to head confrontation. When Satchel left to play for the Kansas City Monarch's they finally got their chance in . the Negro League World Series. It was game one with the score three to one in favor of the Monarch's. Satchel had two outs in the bottom of the ninth and Gibson was scheduled to come up fourth. So Satch calls his manager out to the mound and informs his manager that he was going to walk the next three batters to get to Gibson, the most feared hitter in the league. Satchel loaded the bases and the game came down to Paige vs. Gibson. Gibson dug in and Satchel let fly a "Little Tom," and Gibson watched it go by. "Strike One!" the umpire bellowed. The next pitch from Satchel was a change-up which had Gibson way out in front for strike two. Now Satchel had Josh in his hip pocket. Satchel yelled down to Gibson that a "Long Tom" was coming and he had better get ready. Satchel kicked and dealed, and dispensed a "Long Tom" so dastardly it froze Gibson for strike three. Satchel strode off the mound and as he approached the dugout announced "Ain't nobody hits Satchel!"

DOO WOP : 5 Babes for a Bugler (above) sing together in sweet harmony.

I'M TOO FOXY: Toby Schuler ('95) (left) grabs air during Hooked on Sonyx's electric performance.

by Adam Bandstra staff reporter Saturday night's All College Sing at the Knickerbocker Theater greeted a sold-out audience with an explosive display of talent and fun. The show appealed to the interests of almost everyone in the audience with its eclectic variety of acts and individuals. Emcee Blair Shannon supplied the audience with entertainment, singing, and humor throughout the show's interludes. The judges surely had a difficult time in choosing the winners of the competition. From the moving performance by Annette Cseri ( ' 9 5 ) to Hooked on Sonyx's barrage of sound, every act was unique. Annette Cseri opened the show with a song from the Barbra Striesand movie "Yentl." Although she was a little nervous about being first on the list with a song of such serious nature, it went over very well and earned her the second place soloist trophy. "I just wanted to get it over with," Cseri said. However, she was not in the show for the rewards but rather looked at it as a concert to enjoy with many of her friends and fellow music majors who were also performing. Martha Miller's fun collage of "Hero", "I'm Every Woman", and "I Will Always Love You" won her the

first place trophy for the soloists. Miller said "All the songs were a tribute to the class of '95. 'Hero' and 'I Will Always Love You' were meaningful songs to the class. ' I ' m Every Woman' was just a fun song that my friends and I like," she said. With her accompanist Carl Haan ('95), Miller gave a perfomance that was beautiful in her voice and witty in her dedications. Mellisa Herwaldt ('95), who attended the event, said "Miller was right up there with Whitney Houston." Leigh Ann Goodin ('97) sang Sandi Patti's "Love in any Language" and with Mindy Woolard ('97) signing alongside, it was a success. The "Best of Show" winners, Heidi Bronkema ('97) and Monahar Joshi ('94), gave their rendition of Lionel Richie's "Endless Love" so well, it made their encore appearance nearly inevitable. The romantic aspect of their performance also made it a touching one, and the audience appreciated their candidness and their class. "The winning act was outstanding" said Matt Smith ('98). This was a sentiment shared by most in the audience and the standing, ovation for Bronkema and Joshi was in order. The duo will now advance to the Master Card ACTS (American Collegiate Talent Search) semifinals where they will have a chance at winning a prize of $1500 and a spot in the national

finals in February. Mike and the Magic Tones gave a delightful performance of the Harry Connick Jr. song "Don't Get Around Much Anymore." Complete with piano, percussion and a brass section, and some say Mike See ('96) even looks like Harry. Their act got them the first place prize for a group performance. A quintet of women calling themselves 5 Babes for Bugler sang a capella to the tune of "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" by D. Ray and H. Prince. Classic choreography and flawless harmony got a good response from the audience. They received the second place status for group performances. The other groups were both talented and colorful. The Cosmopolitan Fraternity gave an outrageous caricature of Paul Simon's "Obvious Child," complete with a huge percussion section and a d a n c i n g / " t w e n t i e t h century aborigine" tambourine player. Hope College's own rockin' bands Hooked on Sonyx and Jovo's Dogs gave the audience a treat with good old fashioned Rock and Roll. Both groups performed impressive, original songs written by members of the band. Another crowd pleaser was H.U.G.E.'s rendition of "Plush" by the Stone Temple Pilots. Also entertaining was their "Louie, Louie" jam session featuring Jason Upchurch('94) on lead guitar. Kudos to all those involved.

DenHaan has attended Hope for three years and says there have been many improvements, including the addition of electric doors on many buildings, a learning center in the library, and a ramp on Lubbers. Still he says many of the buildings on campus are not accessible T r i c k s

Having his art hung inside the owner's suite is indeed exciting, but there is one drawback, McCombs said. Only the people who own suites in the stadium will be able to enjoy the works. "The only bad thing is that hardly anyone will make it in there to see it,"McCombs said.

Students have also reported problems with accessing soft drinks and foods in the cafeteria and Kletz and reaching shelves in the bookstore, Shumaker said.

However, when there is a problem, faculty and staff have put forth an extra effort to resolve it. "I'm a chemistry major, so there's a lot of problems with the labs," DenHaan said. "They were really willing to work with me to solve that problem." In addition, cafeteria staff is willing to assist disabled students in Phelps, Shumaker said.

The lobby was always full. We are looking forward to another great turnout." Funds raised by haunted house are used to purchase items for the residence hall. Members of Mortar Board will be knocking on doors this Halloween searching not for sweets, but for canned goods to fill Thanksgiving food baskets. Members will meet at the DeWitt Center at

5:30 p.m. on Halloween and caravan around the surrounding area, both on and off campus. "This project was started last year," said Mortar Board president Jennifer Hodge ('96). "We were encouraged to continue doing it as a tradition for our chapter, to help needy families and make a contribution to the community."
