Educational values discussed Three Hope professors and their wives recently participated in a three-day regional conference of Danforth Associates on the "Values of E d u c a t i o n " at Pokagon State Park in Angola, Indiana. Psychology professor Les Beach and his wife Carla served on the p r o g r a m organizing c o m m i t t e e . Chemistry professor Don Williams led t w o discussion sessions on "Science and E t h i c s . " Also in a t t e n d a n c e w a s Dean for t h e H u m a n i t i e s J a c k Nvenhuis. and

his wife Lee, and Sue Williams. The Michigan-Indiana regional conference of Danforth Associates seeks to improve student-faculty i n t e r a c t i o n s and discussions .on value-centered issues. A majority of the 140 participants were from state-supported colleges and universities where such student-faculty interaction are sometimes more difficult to bring about than they a r e at smaller Church-related institutions.

Oration changes....

Nykerk Preview The Hope Nykerk Cup Competition makes its annual appearance this Saturday, October 29 at 8:00 .m. in the Civic C e n t e r . The 6' y k e r k Cup C o m p e t i t o n allows the women of the Freshmen and Sophomore classes the opportunity to present their best in the fields of song, drama, and oration, while e n j o y i n g t h e s p i r i t of friendly competition and friendship. A new aspect has been added to Nykerk this year. The traditional one woman oration has been eliminated, in favor of a new deb a t e style oration. Two women from both classes will present the affirmative and negative sides of t h e question, " T h e E f f e c t s of Modern Women's Liberation Movement on American Society." The freshmen, coached by Pegi Nordby and Sheryl Radike, will be represented by Cathy Kline on the pro and Meg Biggerstaff on the con. The Sophomores, coached by Janet Cross and Jody Mutschler, will have Janis Lundeen presenting positive a s p e c t s and Ann Helmus the negative. The Class of '81, under the direction of Catherine Van Mater, has

chosen "Corner of the Sky", by Stephen Schwartz as their song this y e a r . An a d a p t a t i o n of Winnie-the-Poohr by A. A. Milne, is t h e f r e s h m a n play selection, coached by juniors Lauri Kramers and Ibby Vanderwoude. The sophomore class, under the direction of Lynn B e r r y , will present "Movin' On", by Raymond R. Mannisian for their song. The

class of '81 will present, for their play selection, Pinnocchio. They are directed by Kathy Forman and Marky Klapthor. The women of both classes who a r e p a r t i c i p a t i n g in this y e a r ' s Nykerk Competition are reminded of the Annual Breakfast which will take place Saturday, October 29, beginning at 7:30 a.m. in Phelps Cafeteria.

Study before you sleep Are you the kind of student who usually studies hard before going to bed, or the kind who goes to bed, sets the alarm for five or six o'clock and then crams? If you're a pre-sleep studier. Glamour Magazine reports you may be getting better grades as a result of your study habits than someone who does the work afterward. Recent research into sleep and s t u d y h a b i t s shows t h a t sleep prior to study disrupts memory significantly, unless considerable w a k i n g t i m e is allowed b e f o r e digging into the material you want to learn. The shorter the period of sleep that precedes the studying,

t h e more this sleep d i s r u p t s learning. Sleeping four hours or less was found to be highly disturbing to memory; sleeping six hours disturbed it less. Researchers aren't exactly sure how sleep disturbs the memory process, but they believe it might involve hormones. In laboratory t e s t s on mice, t h e hormore somatotrophin, produced naturally during sleep, severely affected the memory of mice injected with it. If you have a test to study for, study first instead of putting it off until t h e next morning. B e t t e r grades might be your reward.

Mandatory minimum sentence urged cases of e x t r e m e m i t i g a t i n g circumstances the judge could not give a sentence lower than the mandatory minimum. The third major provision of the legislative package are bills which would establish a State Correctional Facilities Construction Fund which would be financed by a five year extension of the two tenths of one percent income tax which is scheduled to run out on June 30th of this year. The money raised from this tax extension could only be used to build new prisons or for the conversion of non-correctional facilities to prisons. SENATOR McCollough explained " T h e m a j o r a r g u m e n t against mandatory sentencing is that 4 We. do not have a place to put t h e criminals.' We believe t h a t mandatory sentences are needed to p r o t e c t t h e public. We also

believe t h a t t h e public will be willing to pay for the protection. Besides it will be a lot cheaper in t h e long run in t e r m s of lives s a v e d , i n j u r i e s p r e v e n t e d , less hospitalization and p r o p e r t y damage, lower insurance rates and lower law enforcement costs." S e n a t o r H e r t e l added, "We believe mandatory sentences will be a deterrent to crime, but most importantly we know that when a person is in prison for a specific length of time he cannot harm any law abiding citizen. "NO WELL-MEANING social worker, clever attorney, or soft h e a r t e d j u d g e will be able to p r e v e n t t h e convicted violent o f f e n d e r from going to prison," a d d e d McCollough. " T h e m a j o r responsibility of any government is to protect its citizens and these (continued on page 8)

ALONG WITH t h e s e two locations, there are three possibilities for student teaching in the N e t h e r l a n d s . These a r e in the Hague, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam.

Dr. Lamont Uirkse, i 0 ' 7 director/coordinator of the Brussels program explains, "in Brussels, the students live with Belgian families and teach at ISB (International School-Brussels), yet there is no language requirement for any of the programs." "It is recommended that a student planning to teach in a foreign country have some background in the language," adds Dirkse. ALONG with the t e a c h i n g experience, it is possible to visit and o b s e r v e foreign schools. Although it is limited to the three areas, it is hoped that the program will be expanded.

Violent crimes... "The Number one concern of the people of Michigan is violent crime." This statement expressed the major reason why Senator John C. H e r t e l (D-Harper Woods) and Senator Patrick H. McCollough (DDearborn) have introduced legislation which would require that a mandatory minimum sentence be s e r v e d for e v e r y violent crime committed in Michigan. .Besides requiring mandatory minimums (without probation or suspension of sentence) the bills also establish s t a n d a r d s e n t e n c e s for each violent offense. THESE standard sentences are higher than the mandatory minimums and must be adhered to by judges, unless there are aggravating or mitigating circumstances involved in t h e case.

An aid to communication State Representative Jackie Vaughn III (D-Detroit) has just introduced a bill (HB5323) to require that consumer contracts be w r i t t e n in plain and simple language which is easily understood by p e r s o n s of a v e r a g e intelligence. THE BILL would eliminate the legal j a r g o n which is often confusing in consumer contracts dealing with credit, insurance, real estate purchase or lease, and other c o n t r a c t s which a r e commonly

made by the public. Also, public i n f o r m a t i o n bulletins, forms, instructions, etc. must be written in terms which are easily understood by the average person with a high school education. VAUGHN stated, "Consumers should be able to read a contract and understand the terms of the a g r e e m e n t and t h e obligations 1 w i t h o u t hiring a l a w y e r to t r a n s l a t e the legal j a r g o n into simple terms."

Evening attire...

Students design fashions Many of you know the quiet young man by the name of Isaac Myers, but do you know him outside of the context of his being t h e 7 9 Pull anchorman or the extremely vocal '81 Pull coach? Because when he's through yelling Pull directions, he is busy pursuing an area in which he is very talented. HIS TALENT is in designing and tailoring clothes. When asked how he got started in this area, Myers replies: "MY BEST friend, who is now a fashion designer in New York, inspired my interest in tailoring. For over a year, I would j u s t watch him as he worked on clothes. Finally, I decided that I wanted to make a pair of pants. Upon completion of that project, my i n t e r e s t in making s h i r t s , jackets - all types of clothes -never failed to increase." Myers now makes all of his own designs and most of his own patterns. Thanks to Carol Gavasso, all the clothes he produces are labeled I.M. Duds. Several of his designs have been to boutiques in New

York. He works with all types of fabrics and has recently worked on wedding gowns and tuxedos. FASHION is definitely a hobby for Myers, and he plans to keep it that way; he hopes to pursue a career in medicine. However, don't be surprised if one day you walk into a store and see a garment tagged I. M. Duds. You might be able to say t h a t you know its creator. Along with Myers is another Hopeite interested in design. This is easily seen by her stylish dress, which is always accompanied by good spirits and a wide smile. THE STUDENT is Wanda Walker, a senior who designs and makes all of her clothes. Concerning her talents, she explains: "I started making my own clothes because I was too heavy to buy store clothes. I was introverted because of my appearance. "I took a sewing class in ninth grade, and I learned how to make clothes that made me look good. That made me feel good; I came out in full colors like a butterfly out of a life-long cocoon.

"FASHION design is a serious business to me. I don't do much because I most importantly want to be a w r i t e r , p r o d u c e r and a d v e r t i s e r in the mass media-radio mostly. And I have a pretty good chance of making it. Writing is my blood. Fashion design is mv J heart." Walker does wish someday to be a designer or have her own boutique. Some of the products of these students' work may be seen next Thursday night at the dance skits for Black Awareness Week. And, should you be in need of the services of a good tailor/designer, feel free to call Isaac Myers at extension 4711.

One on Robby Benson by Gayle Boss

By now my very unacademic curiosity had seeped through my scholarly shell. I decided to slip, disguised as a townie, into the theater that very night to discover w h a t magical macho m a g n e t i s m had made Smokey and his Bandit friend the Holland movie house's longest s t a y i n g house g u e s t s . Even Moses of The Ten Commandments had worn out his welcome more quickly. BUT THE fickle fate of film distribution was not to allow my hidden hypocrisy. Pulling my hood over my head, I shuffled into Dave V a n d e r w e l ' s office to whisper hoarsely to S e c r e t a r y Sopnie Hamburg that I wanted a SAC theater ticket to the Holland for that evening. Her ringing handclap of delight gave me away to all of Van Raalte Hall. I was her first customer for the new show. My gasp of h o r r o r outdid h e r s of delight. It was true. There was the new blue handbill t h a t had been air-dropped on Phelps Hall that very day. Robert Redford and his

Well first of all, I didn't want to be there. And I made it quite clear. Consciously stiffening to my full five feet three inches and twenty years, I exuded a frigid mist of sophistication from my icy, s t r a i g h t - a h e a d s t a r e into t h e surrounding popcorn salt stuffiness. There was the seven o'clock show at the P a r k T h e a t r e on two-for-one night, and hundreds of Holland High and E. E. Fellers had come in two-by-twos to see One on One. MY SECRET desire was to be in the Holland Theatre, the Park's sister on another street corner, leaning forward in dazed anticipation of a blissfully bad bandit's wink from a thirty-six inch closeup of a blue Burt Reynolds eyeball. A f t e r joining with my fellow H o p e i t e s in e i g h t w e e k s of academic disdain at the Holland's holdover of Smokey and the Bandit, I had run out of such disclaimers as, " T h e s e D u t c h m e n have 'Smokey' in their eyes."

Film series to be evaluated This semester SAC, the Social Activity Committee of Hope, has been piloting a new movie format with the Holland and Park theaters. At the end of October, SAC will evaluate this new movie program in an effort to reach a successful film s e r i e s for the student body. In previous years, SAC ran its own film series on campus. Unable to maintain a profitable budget for the college, a pact between the school and local t h e a t e r s was negotiated. Such benefits of the program were two current movie selections six days a week, food and refreshments, more comfortable seating arrangements, better sound and more current, higher quality films. The unforeseen problem to this new movie program is the holding over of the movies at both theaters. The evaluation at the end of October will consist of a questionnaire, a review of s t u d e n t attendance records maintained by the theater, ticket sales, and SAC-

meetinigs. theater manager Though the decision rests on this month's evaluation, Paul Shrode, head of SAC, said that the campus will probably be entertained by a modified film s e r i e s of last semester's format next semester. Shrode also stated that SAC will hopefully be able to arrive at a

Hope. In the good ole days by K. Gary Hasek October 17 and 18 1 was privileged to represent Hope College, along with Carl Toren, to the Reformed Church in America's Christian Action Commission which was held at the Elk Grove, Illinois Holiday Inn.

It was an interesting occasion of meeting people on the commission from various parts of the country and from various ideological perspectives. There was also an opportunity to talk with and share in common concerns with the other students representing our sister colleges, Northwestern and Central, and the Reformed Church in America's seminaries. I learned a lot from sitting through hours of debate and discussion about pornography, abortion, amnesty, multinational corporations, capital punishment and criminal justice. In the midst of all the interesting people and topics, there was one person who seemed to stand out to me like a dead fly in my soup. Out from the wilderness of suit jackets, ties and well trimmed hair came a man with denim, beard and pony-tail. His name is John (not the Baptist, however much he might resemble him) Boonstra, currently residing in Berkely, California and formerly a student at Hope. John attended Hope from 1968 to 1971 and was one of those seemingly ancient creatures today called "student activists." Being an activist as he was at Hope during the time which he refers to as "the good ole

days" was not extremely unusual. It was not uncommon for students to actively express their ideas about political and ecological wrongs of the day. John was very much involved in this expression and participated in many a demonstration. This activist spirit remains with him even today as he writes a newsletter for the Reformed Church in America called R.C.A. John and the spirit of his "good ole days" contrasts greatly with the reports that were given about the attitudes of students on the campuses of the Reformed Church in America's schools by each school's representatives. It seems that a primary concern of today's student is towards getting a secure job. This goal results in the student dedicating much of his/her college life to studying so that they may finish the scholastic race with the reward of a secure job or an acceptance letter from a grad school. I don't believe this should be the focus of the college life. There are many issues that continue to be in need of our attention today. One need only to read the daily newspaper or watch one of the nightly newscasts on television to realize them. Issues such as world hunger, defense expenditures, global racial conflicts, energy usage, local poverty and loneliness are but a few which affect us directly or indirectly daily. We must not neglect our responsibilities towards the world in which we live by shutting ourselves up in our rooms with books and self-ambition. Studying is important, but must be tempered with concern and compassion for our neighbors next door and around the globe. I hope and pray that the next time I see John Boonstra I can tell him that Hope cares about its world and then I can affirm with Carley Simon when she sings "These are the good ole days."

Police investigate parties Dear Mr. Baker: Reference your editorial of the above date relative to the role of the Holland Police Department in handling off campus "disruptive" parties, I do not know where you got your information but your editorial is incorrect. T h e Holland Police Department has the responsibility and will accept and carry out its responsibility to handle all calls for police service and enforcement of State laws and City ordinances throughout the entire city including off campus parties. Should there be incidents of noisy or disorderly parties off campus, rest assured the Holland Police Department will likely be called and will respond and handle the incident. By policy and practice we would try to resolve the problem rather than make arrests unless there were other violations of law involved. In cases where there are large numbers of people involved

and difficulties are encountered, we may contact Hope security and request the presence of Hope College administrative officials to assist a n d / o r make identifications.

Ultimately the owner and participants can be held responsible and prosecuted for disorderly or loud unruly parties and it is the occupants responsibility to control such social affairs. Problems usually arise when there is not such efforts to control the guests and/or where unlimited numbers of people are invited or allowed to come.- In such cases the expected result can only be complaints to the police. As an additional point of information and to correct the negative implications (continued on next column)

Golden gods and Saints of silver. by K. Gary Hasek "We can hardly respect money enough for the blood and toil it represents. Money is frightening. It can serve or destroy m a n . " - Michael Quoist Money, the love of which is the root of all evil, according to biblical sources, is one of the largest concerns of just about everyone in our society. We spend hours endeavoring in ways to procur it as individuals. T h e church of Jesus Christ being made up of us individuals has as one of its primary concerns, the acquiring of great quantities of it to perform what it believes is its function in the world, be it for the perpetuation of righteousness or its own financial security. I question whether the church of Christ is genuinely looking to biblical material for guidance on its position regarding its economic lifestyle. I recently attended the meeting of the Christian Action Commission of the Re-

formed Church in America. Many hours were spent developing a policy based on the biblical view of man in reaction to the increasing amount of pornographic material available through the mass media which has another view of m a n . Pornography was deplored because it dealt with m a n , "created in the image of God" and sexuality "the creation of God" in a depersonalized and exploitive way. Now this to me was all very fine and legitimate. However, when the issue of how multinational corporations are depersonalizing and exploiting persons around the world so that we Americans may continue with our holy "high" stand a r d of living, was brought to the forefront, the commission tabled the issue. There seems to be a great moral dualism in the church which resides in America. It will spend time condemning pornography and encourage Anita Bryant type actions regarding nomosexualism, issues (continued on page 5)

"So you try reading it 4 at the remarkable speed of 3,000 words per minute' and we'll see how long you last!" She puckered up her lower lip. "Jealous."

I can read t h e New York Times in just three minutes. And I retain everything I read." "You sound like an ad." " N o k i d d i n g , Jill. I wish I'd taken the course in high school.

J e s u s and his disciples consist e n t l y d e a l t with t h e issue of wealth in a much more radical way than the church is dealing with it today. Jesus, after telling his disciples who were the blessed; the poor, the hungry, those who weep, etc., warned "But woe to you wno are rich, for you have already received your comfort." Luke 6:24. Later he tells them "Sell your possessions and give to t h e p o o r . P r o v i d e purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a t r e a s u r e in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Luke 12:33 & 34. After encountering a rich r u l e r w h o w a s not willing to give up his wealth so that he might follow Christ, J e s u s said "How hard it i s j o r the rich to

enter the kingdom of God! Indeed, it is e a s i e r for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to e n t e r t h e kingdom of God." Luke 18:24 & 25. T h e e a r l y b r e t h r e n of t h e church did not often heed these words of Jesus either and thus the a p o s t l e J a m e s r e b u k e s , "Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are c o r r o d e d . T h e i r c o r r o s i o n will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days." James 5:1; 3. It seems obvious to me that if the church is to be a vital part of God's loving redemptive process in the world, it must reexamine its view of possessions and wealth. "Thus says the Lord: 4Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord w h o p r a c t i c e s s t e a d f a s t love, justice and righteousness in the earth; for in these I delight,' says the Lord." Jeremiah 9:23.

"Surgeons, too ?" "I guess." "And you would actually go to a surgeon who had an Evelyn Wood Speed-reading certificate hanging in his office?" Amy leaned back in the chair. "What you getting at?" "I'm just saying t h a t it seems to me that it might be kind of risky." "How's that?" "Well... Say he read the chapter on my gall bladder in ten seconds. Or let's say even five, 'cause he too

College loans bankruptcy justified? Do you have a student loan? Are you thinking about getting one? Glamour M a g a z i n e ' s More F o r Your Money columnist, Barbara Gilder Quint, has some important facts you should know regarding loan payments and bankruptcy. IN 1975, Ann graduatea from her state university with a master's degree in education, lots of confidence - and $7,500 in debts she had accumulated during her last five years of schooling. She quickly discovered that there were no jobs for high school F r e n c h teachers, and that she was either over-qualified or unskilled for any other available jobs. Her best opportunity, it seemed, was as a $5,500-a-year clerk in an insurance office-a far cry from the $9,000 she had counted on as a teacher. Unwilling to face ten years of repaying a loan with only meager earning prospects, Ann declared bankruptcy -- that is, she went to c o u r t , told t h e j u d g e she was

unable to pay ner debts, and asked to h a v e t h e m legally c a n c e l e d . U n d e r b a n k r u p t c y law, which varies somewhat from state to s t a t e , a p e r s o n d e c l a r i n g bankruptcy must turn over most of her a s s e t s to be d i s t r i b u t e d to h e r creditors - in Ann's case, this was the $65 in her savings account. She handed over the $65 and left the courthouse legally free and clear of her $7,500 debt forever. FROM 1974 t o 1976, 12,300 former students filed similar bankruptcy claims totaling $15 million borrowed through various governm e n t - f u n d e d loan p r o g r a m s . Is bankruptcy a sensible step if you are confronted with heavy college debts t h a t your budget can't accommodate? If you go through bankruptcy, you should r e m e m b e r t h a t a report of your bankruptcy remains in y o u r c r e d i t b u r e a u file for f o u r t e e n y e a r s . Some c r e d i t o r s may take into consideration the

special circumstances surrounding your action (and by law you can write your own explanatory statement and have it placed in your credit report), but nevertheless, you may h a v e t r o u b l e g e t t i n g credit for a long time to come. BANKRUPTCY is a last resort for those clearly in a position in which they will never be able to repay their debts and carry on with their life; it is not meant for young men and women who find it temporarily inexpedient to meet debt repayments. All government loan programs e n c o u r a g e f o r m e r s t u d e n t s who are having trouble repaying educational loans to apply to their bank or college l e n d e r s for " f o r b e a r ance" -- the term which is used when you ask an institution to change the terms of your loan to make it easier for you to repay. Note that new 1976 laws specifically provide for deferment of repay(continued on page b)

affletol?ffgwfew!/) First production...a colorful success by Doug Dykstra The Grand Imperial Cirque de Paris made it's opening debut last Thursday evening, featuring the grand and gala music, and the magical excitement of Carnival. CARNIVAL, a musical which kicked off the 1977-78 Hope Theatre season, created on the DeWitt s t a g e t h e a t m o s p h e r e , color, humor and thrill of a three ring circus. Though the cast, crew, orchestra and directors had only four or five weeks to piece together this massive production, they opened with a minimal number of obvious flaws and mishaps, resulting in a t r u l y impressive and successful performance. PRESENTED b e f o r e a near capacity house. Carnival opened with t h e a n n o u n c e m e n t of the r i n g m a s t e r that B.F. Schlegel's Grand Imperial Cirque de Paris was coming to town. Soon the vacant stage became a collage of color and enthusiasm as the circus e n t e r e d on p a r a d e , roudly f e a t u r i n g clowns, juggf.ers, harem and dancing girls, animals, tents, banners, souvenir wagons, balloons and acrobats. At the conclusion of this musical introduction of c h a r a c t e r s , the story began. ITS STAR was Lili (Carolyn McCall), a young, naive girl who

One on Robby

yearns to be a participant in the circus world and decides to try the Cirque de Paris. First, she encounters Grobert (Mike McFaden), the money hungry souvenir salesman. After hiring her, Lili finds herself ousted because of her clumsiness and youthful curiosity. As she is t h r o w n out of Grobert's wagon, she meets Marco the Magnificent (Robert Schultz), the circus magician. Instantly she becomes enchanted with him as a result of his remarkable usage of illusions, charisma, and the bravery and courage he exerted in fighting off the r o u s t a b o u t s in "A Sword and a Cape and a Rose." This segment of the show, by the way, was well choreographed and performed quite well. FINALLY, Marco convinces Mr. B. F. Schlegel (James Taylor), the circus owner, into hiring her, much to the dismay of the Imcomparable Rosalie (Elizabeth DeVette), his attractive assistant. During Lili's debut that night, she discloses the secret of one of Marco's magnificent tricks. Embarrassed, Schlegel commands her to leave the circus. Saddened and very d e j e c t e d , she takes her final stroll around the grounds and suddenly finds herself talking with four puppets. Horrible Henry (a walrus...or was he a seal?).

ded at first, Steel is easily led along the athletic assembly line. But as the process continues, the polite disguises a r e dropped in order to press him more firmly into the mold. Coercion by coaches, teammates and alumni poses a naked conflict to Steel's individualism. In a final, "one on one" battle of the wills, idealism scores the tie-breaking point. Steel, sacrificing acceptance by the athletic establishment in a f f i r m i n g his r i g h t to be an individual, is r e w a r d e d with a crown of true love and acceptance. It is the story of a real winner. IF I seem to have debased the demonic versus the angelic metaphor by stretching it to such an extreme, I ask forgiveness. But it serves to expose the movie's major sin. It simply is not like anything we know in our earthly existence. The conflicts in our lives don't come in the black and white color scheme that surrounds the characters in One on One. Decisions about right and wrong overlap in shades of gray. As if to clear the gray glaze from our eyes, the movie hits us over the head with a battered copy of Moby Dick to make certain we see the light. "What do you like about Captain Ahab?" a reservedly intellectual but of course beautiful white-labcoated t u t o r challenges Henry. "What I have dared I have willed. What I have willed I will do," a wide-eyed disciple r e v e r e n t l y whispers. "Of course! That's it!" exclaims the teacher, in an un-Stoic show of humanity, making doubly sure we don't miss the movie's point. THIS IS the sword of truth with which Steel battles the black-hatted stereotypes that ride out to meet him: a high-brow, long-hair psychology professor in sandals whose theoretical behaviorism extends to "athletic animals;" a hell fire false prophet of a coach preaching the gospel of unquestioning obediance; a locker roomfull of muscle-bound machines who fill t h e i r e m p t y minds every weekend with chemicals and smoke. The truth is that even a $1.25 admission price doesn't grant the audience the powers of apocryphal judgment. Only God can separate the white sheep from the black goats, while we m o r t a l s see a speckled hybrid. FOR ALL its black on white character types, One on One can't be cleanly cast in the melodrama mold. First of afll, there are brief moments of real human ambiguity: the Steel who moves in with his tutor-turned-lover doesn't seem to be quite the same aw-shucks girl-shy guy who hugs his basketball; the "animals" on the team at moments step from their

wolf's clothing to reveal real brotherly warmth and encouragement. But in a more representative show of human fallibility. Steel's moral triumph over the forces of evil is marred bv a streak of open vengence in a final confrontation with his coach t h a t belies the turn-the-other-cheek humility of the real winner we first felt drawn to. Lost with a little innocence along the way was some of the winner too. BUT PERHAPS all of this, too, is academic banter between we college critics of self-made sophistication. All I know for sure is that Sonia "just loved it." And many in t h a t J u n i o r and Senior High assembly around me s t a y e d in t h e i r s e a t s t h r o u g h the credit crawl just to stare at the screen, finally silent. If one of them walked out of the Park Theater that night believing with Steel and Captain Ahab that what he had willed he could do. One on One has not been made in vain. Post Scriptum: In fairly skipping down the store-lit streets of Holland on my way to Mr. Steak to w r i t e this review over several bottom-of-the-pot cups of closingtime coffee, I discovered to my h o r r o r t h a t I had been misinformed. Sophie, we didn't read the fine print. Smokey and the Bandit was still in town, though scheduled to move on out precisely by showtime Friday. I t ' s probably playing to a packed-in audience in Prescho, South Dakota, and I shall never know why.

Rosalie. Bob, her magician counterpart, too, was quite dynamic in his presentation oi lines and stage presence. He did, however, appear a little insecure when performing his feats of magic and illusion. THE LEADING lady was Carolyn McCall whose name in itself sounds as if it should be on a marquee in Las Vegas. She has a superb vocal instrument and sense of pitch, and did i n t e r p r e t and develop her part well, although she needed more of her character, Lili, in her singing. Kevin Kelley, I thought, handled his part well also, and does have a p l e a s a n t on s t a g e voice quality. However, this was suffering, possibly from a lack of vocal training. He did all of his breathing from his chest and lung area which created a loss of voice control. As a result, he had several broken melodic phrases, a wobbly sound and some pitch problems. ALSO, in my view, every song sounded alike and t h u s became very monotonous and overbearing. There was a lack of deviation from t h e c o n s t a n t f o r t e volume and vocal expression. Ms. McCall was also guilty of this. J a m e s Taylor, who p o r t r a y e d the circus owner, looked the part, but was very static. When he was a n g r y , his vocal and facial expression was identical to when he was in an opposite state. His character remained relatively cons t a n t and c o n s i s t e n t -- on a straight line throughout. It was lacking creativeness. THOSE WITH smaller roles ( r e m e m b e r , t h e r e a r e no small parts, only small actors) all port r a y e d t h e i r c h a r a c t e r s to the u l t i m a t e . Mike McFaden, Kirk

and Lili begin to sing "Golden Delicious." It had a Kukla, Fran and Olie appearance. MR. SCHLEGEL observes this display of heart-warming entert a i n m e n t and has an idea. He rehires Lili and moves "Lili and her friends" to the center of the circus. The act soon becomes the biggest attraction. In the meantime, Paul (Kevin Kelley), the voice of the puppets, falls in love with Lili, but can only express his feelings t h r o u g h t h e wooden characters he created. When he is with Lili, he shows only h a t r e d and c r u e l t y and becomes s t r o n g l y v e h e m e n t tow a r d s her. He even loses his closest friend, Jaquot (Kirk Hoopi n g a r n e r ) , because of his fierce t e m p e r and intolerable actions. Lili learns to hate and distrust Paul so much, she decides to break up the act. MARCO then uses her in his act, while Rosalie, who is away with a misfit veterinarian fan from Zurich named Dr. Glass (Eric Fitzgerald), attempts to find fame and glory in the elite hotels of Europe, which are, coincidentally, owned by his father. When Rosalie returns to Marco with an invitation to perform in some very e x t r a v a g a n t places, Marco decides to join Rosalie and reneges on his offer to Lili, but does promise to return for her. Feeling rejected and lonely once again, Lili makes the decision to leave. AS SHE walks away with her coat, hat, and suitcase in hand, the puppets, who are in tears over her departure, say good-bye. Suddenly, with damp eyes, Lili opens the curtain of the puppet stage and reveals Paul's face to the audience. Lili then realizes that the words of the p u p p e t s a r e also the t r u e feelings of Paul. They then embrace, the orchestra begins to play softly, Paul and Lili exit and the lights go out -- a happy ending. Truly a melodramatic musical! THE PLOT and s t o r y l i n e of Carnival, though, very simplistic, elementary and at times unrealistic, did spark some emotion from the audience resulting into a very entertaining show. The p u p p e t s especially, who were given life by Kevin Kelley and Kirk Hoopingarner, and designed by Richard Smith, instantly drew out the warmth and love of their viewers. OTHER CAST m e m b e r s who helped get the dialogue and music off the paper and made their roles come "alive" were the voluptuous Elizabeth DeVette and the suave Robert Schultz. DeVette, whose glamorous s t a g e p r e s e n c e was exciting, seemed to have no difficulty in fitting into her role. Her singing voice and acting abilities portrayed her character very well.

ments for up to twelve months during any one period when you are unemployed and looking for full-time work. Student Loans and Bankruptcy: A Fact Sheet THERE ARE two very popular loan programs for higher education. One, the Guaranteed Student Loan Program (GSLP), lends up to $2,500 a year, with a maximum loan of $7,500 for undergraduates (including those taking vocational training) and $15,000 for undergraduates who then go on to do g r a d u a t e work. Most of the lenders are banks, credit unions, savings and loan associations and state agencies; in a few cases, the college or university makes the loan directly. The Federal government reimburses the lender 100 percent if the student defaults. Repayment is required in ten y e a r s or less, with minimum p a y m e n t s of $30 a month, and usually begins within nine months after leaving the college program.

Hoopingarner. Eric Fitzgerald and t h e r o u s t a b o u t s , Vince Ramick, J o n a t h a n H o n d o r p and Tom Picard, were quite good in musical routines as well as speaking, stage presence and just plain reacting off the people they were playing opposite of. As for the rest of the circus crowd, they were marvelous and fun to watch. True, there were some noticeable, y e t accidental slip-ups, but it was opening night and the stage was small -- give 'em a break! THE ORCHESTRA, under the direction of Mr. Robert Cecil, was fine except for an occasional "klunker" and lack of unity. Also, during Act II, in t h e Cirque de P a r i s ballet, the voices on stage were a beat behind the instrumentalists in the pit. All in all though, the orchestra and voices sounded and blended well. The choreography, designed by Cathy Hondorp, was also exciting, especially in the Marco and roustabouts scene and sometimes f u n n y , as in t h e clown line-up dance in the second act. THE COLORFUL, creative and imaginative sets and costumes also added much to the unique nature of the show. Overall, I believe that director John K. Tammi scored a hit with this musical and it is evident that many, many hours of strenuous work, concentration and sleepless nights w e r e invested into this project. Carnival will undoubtedly be a highlight of this academic year and is certainly well worth seeing. The show continues through Saturday night in t h e D e W i t t C u l t u r a l Center.
