The odd-year song girls work on their routines in the basement of Dimnent Chapel. The 69th Nykerk Cup Competition will be held at the Civic Center at 8 p.m. on Saturday. This year's competition will pit the Class of 2007 against the Class of 2006. Maureen Yonovitz A R T S EDITOR

For 6 9 years, Hope females h a v e been coming together to prepare, practice, and produce one of H o p e ' s most long-standing and popular traditions, Nykerk. T h e tradition will continue at 8 p.m. on Saturday in the Civic Center as a part of Parents' Weekend. Admission is free.

A l t h o u g h t r a d i t i o n is a m a j o r p a r t of Nykerk, s o m e slight modifications will be made to this year's ceremony. In the past, the c o m m i t t e e has been introduced at the beginning of the ceremony, but due to public criticism, this event has been moved to the end of the program. "We are hoping that by m o v i n g this ceremony to a time w h e n our audience typically

mills about we can cut about half an hour o u t of the c e r e m o n y i t s e l f , " s a i d K r i s t i Creswell ('04), Nykerk general chair. T h e bulk of the Nykerk tradition, however, will remain intact, featuring, as it always has, the freshman and sophomore classes in song, play, and oration. Nykerk song requires the musical talents of both the coaches and song girls. Three

even-year participants, Suzzy Lockwood ( ' 0 6 ) , J e s s S c h m i d t ( ' 0 6 ) , and Rachel VandeGiessen ('06), made additional arr a n g e m e n t s to this y e a r ' s song, " D i a monds A r e a Girl's Best Friend."

Security concerns cause dorms to lockdown Anjey Dykhuis MANAGING EDITOR

This past weekend, tensions have been high on c a m p u s as students w o n d e r e d what the first C a m p u s Safety alert they received entailed.

"As a female student, I ' m person-

We need facts. We d o n ' t need names. Facts is all w e ask," said A m a n d a Dekker (05).

accurately as possible," Frost said. " D o n ' t start r u m o r s that frighten people until you know the full story. Ask C a m p u s Safety or your Resident Life Assistant what happened.

Cultural heritage showcased

Computer monitors stolen

An international s h o w c a s e will provide a sampling of cultural heritage f r o m around the world during " I m a g e s : A Reflection of Cultures" at Hope College on Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Theatre. T h e s h o w c a s e will feature songs, poems, dances and other clips of culture in multiple languages and fashions. T h e s h o w c a s e is sponsored by the college's O f f i c e of International Education. This year it is being presented in conjunction with the college's Parents' Weekend activities, which are running Friday through Sunday.

On O c t o b e r 21, there was a break-in at Van Zoeren Hall. T h e break in happened at 1:30 in the morning. T h e thieves broke into one of the computer labs and stole f o u r of the computer monitors. T h e theft was discovered the next morning. Earlier this year, monitors were stole f r o m another lab in the hall. T h e break in and theft are being investigated by both C a m p u s Safety and the Holland Police Department. At this time, they h a v e no suspects and no leads as to what happened to the four monitors that were taken.

New Relay for Life Ignites Hope!

Dean of Natural Sciences receives honor as Fellow for research Danielle Koski BUSINESS MANAGER

Mutations aren't only found in comic books or movies, they're also gcnctic changes and shifts that can cause disease, including cancer. They can be caused by various environmental factors and are specifically what J a m e s Gentile! dean of the natural sciences, researches. Gentile has been elected as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in recognition for his contribution to both undergraduate science education and his research in genetic toxicology and mutagenesis. A c c o r d i n g to Gentile, he was surprised and humbled by the honor of being selected as a Fellow. "It was an honor I never anticipated receiving and, in fact, did not know 1 was even nominated for," said Gentile. The A A A S was founded in 1848 and is the world's largest federation of scientists. The advancement of the well-being of h u m a n s is it's foremost objective and is accomplished through various programs, projects, and publications. T h e A A A S also publishes the journal Science. Gentile has been a member of the A A A S for years and has published in Science, but, according to him. has not been very active in the organization. "Their recognition is evidently not limited to service components, and that makes it even nicer that they somehow identified me out of

J. Gentile the broader pool of scientists," said Gentile. Gentile has been recognized for his research by various organizations, including the National Academy of Sciences, the National Research Council Life Science Board, and the International Association of Environmental Mutagen Societies. According to James Boelkins, provost at H o p e C o l l e g e , G e n t i l e ' s various contributions to science both at Hope and nationwide make his s e l e c t i o n as a F e l l o w w e l l earned. " H e is recognized nationally by his peers, and his many activities have helped bring national recognition to Hope's science programs," said Boelkins. "I think this (honor) reflects well on Hope College. While I am being recognized for things I have accomplished, it was Hope College that provided me with the opportunities to work with students on research and then promoted ways in which I could find the time to be involved in the national activities in t e a c h i n g and r e s e a r c h , " said Gentile. Gentile will be officially honored on F e b u a r y 14 in Seattle at f h e A A A S meeting.

He also asked that students be aware of suspicious situations, such as the presence of people who don't belong on c a m p u s , that students lock their doors, and use common sense. " A s a community, we constantly need to be aware of things we need to improve," Frost said. "We are taking steps to secure residence halls even more." For now, though, while these issues are worked out, all secondary doors of all residential halls will be continually locked, starting today. Durfee, Voorhees, and Phelps will be excluded from this policy due to classes held in the buildings and Phelps Dining Hall.

listened to the Marilyn Monroe version and wrote the additional piano and vocal part," Lockwood said. Abby Bolkema ('07), piano accompanist for odd year song, also did some arranging of her own to the song, "I Say a Little Prayer." " I ' m especially proud of the end, actually," Bolkema said. Although this is her first year of Nykerk, odd year orator Kasey Bersett ('07) is used to performing in front of an audience. "I did a lot of public speaking and acting in high school and really like the thrill of being able to impact a crowd," Bersett said. According to even year play coach Marjorie Behm ('04), both playgirls and coaches alike say that rehearsals are what they look forward to when they wake up in the morning. "All of the girls and the coaches have a blast each night as they explore new ways to make the play both

original and captivating," Behm said. "They are all so talented and have really put forth an effort into this year's play." In the midst of all their hard work and preparation, the girls involved in Nykerk agree that one of its most important aspects is the opportunity to meet new people. "It is nice because we have gotten to know each other so much better and form good friendships which is what Nykerk is really all about," VandeGiessen said. In addition to this, both Creswell and Kristina Martinez ('04), senior publicity chair, point out that one of their favorite things about Nykerk is the fruits of the whole rehearsal process that are revealed on the night of the performance. "I enjoy watching the magic of the event," Creswell said. "To think that everything you see on Nykerk night came from less than 28 days of rehearsal is a fact that consistently amazes me."

Let's Talk About... Politics Part 2'.Liberal viewpoints at Hope


While last w e e k ' s article outlined the political views of the conservative side, it is now time to focus on those of the liberals. From this November, voters will h a v e exactly one year until it is time to vote f o r president, and having adequate information about both parties is key to making an informed decision. O n e of t h e m a j o r i s s u e s t h a t D e m o c r a t s h a v e with P r e s i d e n t Bush is the sluggish economy. Julie Wilcox, co-student leader of the Hope Democrats, feels this concern pertains direcdy to college students. She realizes that u p o n graduation, many people will be competing f o r jobs not only with other recent g r a d u a t e s but also with m i d d l e aged professionals w h o w e r e laid off from their previous j o b s due to the bad economy. " I t ' d be nice if w e k n e w there w a s s o m e kind of social program in place to help support us as w e hunt for a job, but those were slashed in order to provide Ameri-

" As a Democrat, Wilcox also said she believes there are other areas in which Bush has failed to do his j o b effectively. O n e of these conc e r n s is t h e e n v i r o n m e n t . T h e l i b e r a l ' s list of B u s h ' s o f f e n s e s against the environment includes pulling out of the Kyoto Protocol, pulling back clean-air and cleanwater standards, working to open the Arctic National Wildlife R e f u g e to drilling, and making it easier f o r companies and factories to pollute. Another area is education; public, inner-city schools in particular. In the liberal opinion. Bush is contributing not to such schools' improvement but to their demise. In last w e e k ' s article, the Republicans praised B u s h ' s N o Child Left Behind education program. However, Wilcox said she believes he has under-funded the program and also d o n e his best to undercut the popular preschool p r o g r a m H e a d Start. " W h i l e I'll concede that, aside

Wilcox said they also hope to find events in which m e m b e r s can meet o n e or a few of the candidates. Yet o n c e the Democratic candidate is chosen, they will throw all of their support behind that candidate. Wilcox said she is confident that sometime before the 2004 election Americans are going to realize that there are a lot of problems in this country that are not being addressed under the Bush administration. She believes it is possible for a president to protect his nation f r o m outside threats while still addressing the country's domestic problems. In W i l c o x ' s o p i n i o n . P r e s i d e n t Bush has proven himself unable to do this, and thus in November, the people will elect a president who can. One of the most important ways Hope students can become involved in their o w n futures is to brush u p on their politics.

^Anchor Editor's voice

Your voice

Anyone but Bush Willi the race for President beginning around the nation, I have been thinking about the upcoming election and what my vote may be. Until recently. I did not believe that politics were important. I did not vote in the last election, not because I thought that my vote wouldn't matter, but because I thought that the President couldn't possibly screw everything up so bad that I would mind. I was wrong. Since entering office in 2001, President Bush has proven himself exactly the President that I thought could not exist. Throughout his term. Bush's attitude and actions have convinced me that casting your vote is important, especially in the Presidential election. Even before Bush entered office, something shadowy was suspected because of the situation in Florida. Bush and his family, specifically his brother Jeb, the governor of Florida, have been accused of stealing the election. I am not prepared to make a statement one way or the other, but there is some interesting evidence against Bush. For example, hundreds of AfricanAmerican citizens were denied their voting rights on the day of the election without reason. The next event that casts doubt in my mind is the war on Iraq. The reasons that we should or should not have gone to war have been gone over repeatedly, so I will not mention those here. Instead, what I find to be more important are some of the specifics that many people do not know. For example, oil giants Bechtel and Halliburton, which both Bush and Cheney have significant ties to, were responsible for planning bombing runs at the beginning of the war. After we declared ourselves victorious in the war, the same oil companies were given the contract to rebuild the Iraqi economy. In addition to this, many statements made and his cabinet have proven to be false. Because of these events, and many more, I know only one thing about my vote in the upcoming election: it will be for anyone but Bush. My only fear is that the only viable candidate to run against Bush will be a Democrat that comes out of the primaries with a lack of campaign funds and the backing of only half of his party. There are many other sources that have done much more extensive research than I, and are not limited in their space to print the results. I would strongly encourage you to look at the very comprehensive report of the evidence presented at www.thousandreasons.org, and make a decision for yourself on whether or not you want this person to run your country for another four years.

Student Congress is ready to address your concerns To the editor: As we are in the midst of fall semester. Student Congress would like to make you aware of a few items. In our experience, students have not been sure whereto take their concerns and issues. We would like you all to know that there are class representatives as well as residence representatives to take your concerns to. A list of representatives is available on our website. After you talk to your representative. Student Congress as a whole will address your concern. We would also like to bring your attention to events that Student Congress annually sponsors. We have a concert series and a speaker series. Last January, Student Congress worked with S A C to bring Jars of Clay to campus. For the speakers series we had a debate

over whether or not video games provoked violence between the Rolling Stone's editor and a high profile lawyer. A more recent achievement of Student Congress was the installment of a computer kiosk by the Student Union Desk. The computer is handicap accessible and available for the entire Hope community to use. It is a great way to quickly check your e-mail or KnowHope. Please feel free to contact your Student Congress Representative with any concerns you may have throughout the year.

Thank you for making Relay For Life a success To the editor: First and foremost I would like to extend my congratulations to each and every person who participated in the first annual Hope College Relay For Life. We were able to raise over $35,000 that will go directly to the American Cancer Society to help fight cancer. Members of 34 teams took turns walking throughout the night, even through the rain, to support this

cause. These people should be applauded on all of the effort they put into this first time event here at Hope. However, I felt recognition was lacking in some respects, primarily, on knowhope. This event happened on Friday night through Saturday morning. When scrolling through knowhope on Saturday afternoon there was no mention of Relay for Life. When I looked on Sunday there was a small section with a report of the grand total of money raised and a

request to thank those involved. I expected much more; I was very disappointed that there were no pictures present or elaboration on the event itself. I believe that the students that participated in this event deserve to be recognized for everything they did to fight this disease. I personally commend everyone that participated on a j o b well done. I hope to see you all back next year for another fantastic night.

Make campus-wide safety updates the norm To the editor: I am writing to express my appreciation for Dean Frost's campus-wide email that addressed the "suspicious incidents" occurring on campus this week. As the c a m p u s lockdown was instituted, I—and apparently many other students—began hearing rumors of what scary events may have sparked the new security measures. Dean Frost said that his email, which gave the student body accurate information regarding the incidents, was in response to these rumors. While I am thankful that the campus authorities decided to share this important information with the student body, 1 wonder why such procedures are not more often the norm at Hope College. For example, in the previous lockdown this semester, students were given little more information than to carry their access cards and to be wary of a college-age man in a blue jacket. Although I understand that there are probably some legal barriers that prohibit full disclosure of the circumstances, I think that the college could have been more informative in regards to what incidents had occurred, and therefore how we may be more aware and protective of our safety. As a 20-year-old woman who

often confidently walks alone around campus at night, this information would have been quite useful to me. And as many of us have been taught, it is knowledge, awareness, and preparation that are most effective in reducing the risks of "suspicious incidents." The students depend on the campus authorities for the information that makes such preparation possible. Without an accurate and reliable information source, a breeding ground for rumors—and more suspicious incidents—is formed. It is for these reasons that I am grateful for Dean Frost's campus-wide announcement. I simply hope that it was not an exception to Hope College's policy on disclosing safety information to the students, but rather that it set a precedent for the future. As Dean Frost noted, "The safety of our campus is a responsibility we all share... the conversation about the safety of the campus has been, and will continue to be. an ongoing one." I hope this means that the conversation will continue to be two-sided, with the campus authorities holding up their end of it. The students' safely depends on it.

Hockey takes second in Indianapolis Calvin and Hope both go undefeated, championship cancelled Andrew Borozan STAFF REPORTER

The Hope hockey team traveled d o w n to I n d i a n a p o l i s this past weekend for a trying test in this early hockey season. Teams from Georgia, Florida, California. Indiana, Tennessee and Michigan gathered at Fischer Forum to fight for the rights of the Division T h r e e Showcase crown. T h e first trial for Hope came on Friday from Florida Atlantic University. Florida Atlantic struck first in the opening period, but H o p e mustered a c o m e b a c k with consecutive goals spurred on by the inspiring play of Ken Cooke ('06). A n o t h e r goal late by F l o r i d a Atlantic led to a 2-2 tie. " T h e y w e r e m o r e of a ' b u s h -

l e a g u e ' t e a m . We s h o u l d h a v e b e a t e n t h e m , " said d e f e n s e m a n Adam Folsom ('07). Hope then took on a recognizable foe in Middle Tennessee State on Saturday morning. After beating them earlier this year 11-1 in Holland, Hope was hoping to trounce them again. Peter Rusche ('05) led the charge with a hat trick, and the play of A n d r e w R a d l e r ( ' 0 7 ) ( k n o w n as T h e J u n k y a r d Dog), helped Hope topple Middle Tennessee State once again, 7-1. The Dutchmen then played College of the Canyons, a small school located just outside Los Angeles. Assistant captain George Dickinson ('05) notched two goals for the Dutchmen and the solid play of Jordan Winfield ('07) propelled Hope to the 5-3 victory. Hope won its bracket with a 2-01 record, but since school rules prohibit play on Sunday, the proposed championship game between

Calvin and Hope was cancelled. Calvin was therefore declared the winner of the S h o w c a s e as they went 3-0 in its bracket, leaving Hope with the second place trophy. "Overall, it was a good weekend," Folsom said. "It was a rough start but we recovered and came back and played well on Saturday. T h e team is heading in the right direction." Hope hockey is looking forward to this upcoming weekend in which two home g a m e s will be played against Grand Valley State on Friday and Lansing Community College on Saturday.
