Tuition Hiked $ 2 0 0 for Next Year The Hope College B o a r d of Trustees h a s a p p r o v e d a tuition increase in the a m o u n t of $ 2 0 0 beginning with the school year 1968-69, announced H e n r y Steffens, T r e a s u r e r and Vice-President for Finance, in a letter to p a r e n t s of Hope students dated Nov. 1. According to the letter, an e x p a n d e d faculty and greater educational offerings together with inflationary pressure m a k e the increase m a n d a t o r y . T H E P R E S E N T tuition rate is $ 5 2 5 per semester, or $ 1 , 0 5 0 per year. Total collegefees are $ 1 , 9 1 0 per year, including the $ 1 0 Cultural Affairs fee. T h e increase will b r i n g tuition to $ 1 , 2 5 0 and the total cost of tuition, r o o m and b o a r d to $2,160. This will be the third increase in college fees in three years. The cost of r o o m and b o a r d was increased by $ 1 0 0 at the begin-

ning of the 1966 school year, and tuition was increased by the same a m o u n t at the beginning of this year. The letter states, " O u r decision is that H o p e College must increase its o p e r a t i n g funds if it is to continue its present educational stand a r d s a n d enlarge its offerings. The tuition rate also was c o m p a r ed with other distinguished colleges with whom we are academically associated a n d our tuition rates a r e lower t h a n any of them. The cost of educational o p p o r t u n ities on this c a m p u s are still reas o n a b l y priced." W I T H T H E P O S S I B L E excep tions of Calvin a n d Olivet Colleges, for which Mr. Steffens h a d no statistics, Hope has the lowest tuition rate of any college in the Great Lakes Colleges Association. In fact, the increased tuition rates are still lower t h a n those charged by other GLCA schools this year.

Albion College, for example, h a s a tuition of $ 1 , 5 0 0 this year. This will be increased to $ 1 , 6 5 0 next year and $ 1,850 the following year. K a l a m a z o o College h a s an a n n u a l rate of $1,480, according to Mr. Steffens. Other tuition rates for GLCA colleges are DePauw University, $1,650; Ohio Wesleyan, $1,700; College of Wooster, $ 1 , 7 0 0 ; Wab a s h College, $ 1 , 7 5 0 ; Denison University, $1,800; E a r l h a m College, $1,830; Oberlin College, $1,850; Kenyon College, $1,965. T H E L E T T E R continues, "At the s a m e time the Trustees of Hope have reaffirmed their commitment to m a i n t a i n the scholarship-grant-work o p p o r t u n i t y prog r a m . This p r o g r a m will enable qualified and deserving needy students to receive a g o o d education at H o p e College Accordingly, the B o a r d a p p r o v e d a substantial in-

crease in aid to students eligible for such assistance. We trust that no student will be denied the excellent education Hope College affords because of lack of f u n d s . " Mr. Steffens noted that the College subscribes to the College Scholarship Service. This service makes stipend r e c o m m e n d a t i o n s by subtracting the a m o u n t the student's f a m i l y can provide, which is computed on the basis of a Parent's Confidential Statement, f r o m the fees of the college plus a cost of living factor. Consequently, said Mr. Steffens, if a student's financial situation remains the same, he can expect that his scholarship, coupled with loans and c a m p u s employment, will increase p r o p o r t i o n a t e l y to the increase in fees. D I R E C T O R OF ADMISSIONS Roger Rietberg does not anticipate that the increase will create any problems for the Admissions Of-

fice. Said Mr. Rietberg, " I n light of the new Michigan scholarship p r o g r a m s , I would be very surprised if the tuition increase were a deterent to those students who want the kind of education that Hope College h a s to offer." Mr. Steffens asserted in the letter, which was mailed Wednesday so that it would reach parents before Parents' Weekend, "During the course of the past several years, our efforts at fund raising h a v e been e x p a n d e d and intensified and it is only the generosity of our alumni a n d friends that h a s kept the increases in tuition f r o m being even larger. Our Trustees are pledged to the policy of continuing their efforts to increase the support of H o p e College on a n ever b r o a d e n i n g base. Bytheir aggressive action in the fund raising p r o g r a m , they a r e p r o v i d i n g a firm f o u n d a t i o n for the future strength of the College."

Many felt, however, that this was too unladylike a contest for the coeds of H o p e College. Therefore, a competition in d r a m a , music and o r a tory w a s begun, h o p i n g to project a m o r e feminine image. After the Nykerk competition P a r e n t ' s Weekend will be officially over, but p a r e n t s are invited to attend the College Church.

By Glenn Loo m a n a n c h o r News Editor In F e b r u a r y , 1966, the students of Hope College raised over $ 6 , 0 0 0 to build a k i n d e r g a r t e n school, a h y d r a u l i c p u m p and new homes for the village of Le Loi in South Vietnam. Now, one year a n d eight months later, t h e m o n e y is still in a b a n k . According to C r a i g Holleman, President of the Student Senate, " t h e Saigon b r a n c h of the Chase M a n h a t t a n Bank reports that as of Sept. 29, our account shows a b a l a n c e of 7 7 1 , 8 8 8 piasters, or about $ 6 , 0 0 0 . " INFORMATION concerning whether construction has in fact begun is conflicting. Wes Michaelson, President of the Student Senate when the project was begun, feels that something is w r o n g somewhere. He said, " T h e b a n k statement which Holleman received seems to indicate that the m o n e y h a s not been touched at all a n d that either construction h a s not begun or m o n e y has yet to be withdrawn for p a y m e n t or completed construction." This conclusion, however, is not entirely consistent with correspondence he h a s received. On Feb. 14, Mr. Michaelson received a letter from two gentlemen n a m e d Rex Searson and J o h n M a r k s , requesting that a blanket check for the entire $ 6 , 0 0 0 be sent to them so they could establish a n account a n d " c o n t r o l the issues of money in a p p r o p r i a t e a m o u n t s to the hamlet officials a n d monitor the expenditure a n d p r o g r e s s of the construction of the kindergarten." MR, M I C H A E L S O N , however, thought it best not to send the entire a m o u n t at once. "We h a d no idea who these two men were. We had been c o r r e s p o n d i n g with Ralph J o h n s o n , who was the original c o o r d i n a t o r of the project but who was r e m o v e d f r o m his post in mid-December of 1 9 6 6 . " H e then conferred with H e n r y Steffens, Treasurer a n d Vice-President for Finance at Hope. A p i a n was d r a w n up whereby m o n e y could be obtained b y officials in Vietnam only if proof of a building p l a n were presented. T h e f u n d s were then transfered t o i h e C h a s e M a n h a t t a n b r a n c h in Saigon with the stipulation that w i t h d r a w a l s could be m a d e only if both Mr.

Searson and Mr. M a r k s signed the note. THIS I N F O R M A T I O N was sent to Vietnam in a letter from Mr. Michaelson on M a r c h 16. After a c o n v e r s a t i o n with Father D a n - D u y - H o a , p a r i s h priest in Le Loi, who asked about the availability of the H o p e funds, Mr. Marks wrote to Mr. Michaelson on March 25 i n q u i r i n g about the status of the project. Mr. Michaelson explained that this letter was p r o b a b l y written before his letter of March 16 had been received, and therefore Mr. Marks could not h a v e known about the new plan for o b t a i n i n g the money. MR, M I C H A E L S O N received his last c o m m u n i c a t i o n from Mr. Searson and Mr. M a r k s on April 12. Blueprints and a cost estimate for the k i n d e r g a r d e n ( a p p r o x i mately $ 2 , 0 8 5 ) had been received prior to the Feb. 14 letter. This new letter insinuated that the only obstacle r e m a i n i n g was cutting the red tape involved in transfering the funds. After this was completed, Mr. Michaelson assumed that construction would begin.

However, on J u l y 4 he received a statement f r o m the Saigon b a n k which g a v e the b a l a n c e in the account as being identical to the original deposit. He then wrote to Mr. Searson a s k i n g about the status of the project and why the money h a s not been touched. He has received no answer so far. AT T H I S SAME T I M E , he wrote to Dr. Wesley R. Fischel, a d v i s o r for a similar project at Michigan State University, a s k i n g for advice. Dr. Fischel in turn wrote to Daniel Whitfield, operations officer for the UN desk of the United States Agency for International Development in Washington. Mr. Whitfield replied that p r o g r e s s was being m a d e and that the money is being used. This report, said Mr. Michaelson, conflicts with the two b a n k statements received since Messrs. Searson and M a r k s last wrote. In light of the present situation, Mr. Michaelson p l a n s to attempt correspondence a g a i n with Messrs. Searson and Marks in order to learn what is h a p p e n i n g in Le Loi.

Dr. Schrier Will Retire As Hope Oratory Coach After coaching o r a t o r y and ext e m p o r a n e o u s speech for 4 0 years. Dr. William Schrier, professor of speech and coach of oratory at Hope College since 1939, h a s decided to retire f r o m his active capacities as a coach. Dr. Schrier was active in debate a n d o r a t o r y d u r i n g his years as a student at K a l a m a z o o College, a n d the University of Michigan." He h a s coached H o p e students to top h o n o r s in both the Interstate Oratorical Association a n d in the national convention contests of Pi K a p p a Delta, the h o n o r a r y national forensic fraternity. In his latest of b o o k s , "Winning H o p e College O r a t i o n s , " which h a s won Dr. Schrier national acclaim, he expresses his main phil o s o p h y for the c o a c h i n g of oratory, which is that the winning of the contest is not important, but r a t h e r that the subject be worthwhile a n d presented so that the listener is influenced b y the speech. Before c o m i n g to H o p e College, Dr. Schrier coached o r a t o r y at St. Louis University, the Univer-

DR. WILLIAM SCHRIER sity of C o l o r a d o , and the University of North Dakota. Dr. Schrier p l a n s to continue in his capacities in the department of speech.

Philadelphia Program Proposed Social sciences and humanities majors may become directly involved next semester with innercity projects in Philadelphia if a proposed program is approved by the GLCA and the Hope Administration and faculty, explained Dr. David Clark, assistant professor of history. According to Dr. Clark, who is acting as the Hope College liaison, the program would enable students from the GLCA to spend a term in Philadelphia participating in various aspects ofaninnercity educational system. Areas of

Salisbury Speaks At GLCA Forum On Bolsheviks A consultation on Russian and Ea^t European studies will be held on Hope's c a m p u s by the Great Lakes Colleges'Association next T h u r s d a y , F r i d a y and Saturday. For the keynote address of this p r o g r a m , H a r r i s o n Salisbury, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, will be speaking in Dimnent Memorial Chapel at 2 p.m., Nov. 11. Mr. Harrison is presently assistant m a n a g i n g editor for t h e ' f N e w York Times." Mr. Salisbury's speech is cosponsored by the Hope College Cultural Affairs Committee This event is open to a student audience and no admission will b e c h a r g e d . Mr. Salisbury's topic will be "Russia versus China: G l o b a l C o n flict?" Prior to Mr. Salisbury's dealing with this question, representatives from all twelve GLCA institutions will be involved in discussions on the critical intellectual attitudes developing in East Europe, Dr. Walter Leitsch, Director of the Institute of East E u r o p e a n History, will initially present these attitudes to the group. A concern for what U.S. educational systems are doing to develop an awareness of these attitudes within American students will be an integral part of this p r o g r a m . Dr. Leitsch has taught history at the Hope College Vienna Summer School for the past several years.

participation include student and team teaching, classroom-home relationships and field research. " T H E PROGRAM IS not intend ed to provide student teaching experience, although it could be arranged," stressed Dr. Clark. The p r o g r a m would be a new opportunity for students to become involved in educational experiences which are not a v a i l a b l e locally or on the Hope campus, Dr. Clark added. Hopefully, the p r o g r a m would reveal the basic applications of a student's field and would p r o v i d e practical activity with related c o n t e m p o r a r y problems of that discipline. The p r o g r a m is designed for sophomores, juniors and seniors who are declared or contemplative social sciences and humanities m a j o r s , explained Dr. Clark. T H E PROPOSAL HAS not been approved by the Administration and faculty. It will p r o b a b l y be decided u p o n at the next Educational Policies Committee meeting. If the p r o p o s a l is passed, about 36 students will be chosen by GLCA committees f r o m its member schools. The p r o g r a m would begin about Feb. 1. Since it is an experimental project, it would last about two or three years. However, Dr. Clark said long r a n g e plans have not yet been made. Students would spend the entire semester in the Germantown section of Philadelphia and would also receive credit for their work, he added. It would be possible to study also in local universities.

H E STATED T H A T olanning' for the program Has exclfeH lilm because of the "innovative approach" it has for the unity of academic interest and practical involvement. "My hope is," Dr. Clark explained, "that students do participate and return to the campus with new perspective about the educational enterprise," The GLCA-Philadelphia project grew out of the idea that a program affiliation would enhance the goals of each. Since a complete over-haul of thepublic school system of Philadelphia is being pursued, the opportunities for GLCA students to participate in and contribute to various projects in a progressive urban situation are numerous. According to Dr. Robert De H a a n , chifirman of the education department and co-ordinator of the project, students would work in one experimental section of the city which still can be saved. Students would associate themselves with any type school they wish, f r o m slum schools to s u b u r b a n schools INFORMAL DISCUSSIONS were held last April concerning the possibility of the project, explained Dr. D e H a a n . It received f a v o r a b l e reaction and on Sept. 29 the decision was m a d e in Detroit to design and p r o p o s e the project. Another meeting of the GLCA a n d Philadelphia representatives was held on October 19 and 20 where the types of p r o g r a m s needed and offered were formed into the initial plans of the p r o g r a m .


S T U D E N T S E N A T E - President Craig Holleman is pictured conducting the Student Senate meeting last Monday evening. At the meeting, parts of the new catalog were read that inform prospective students of college rules, in accordance with a Senate motion.

Student Senate Examines Reports, Rules in Catalog Statements of College regulations to be included in the new catalog and r e p o r t s f r o m the Communications Board and the Educational Policies Committee were topics of discussion at a brief Student Senate meeting last Mond a y evening. In response to a Senate proposal submitted by Dick Kooi two weeks ago that "all students be informed prior to any commitments of the rules they must obey to r e m a i n students in good standing at Hope College," a memo

directed to the Administration a n d Student Senate from the Director of College Relations, Wilma Boum a n , was read. According to the memo, the following rules on board and room will be in the new College catalog: "All u n m a r r i e d Hope students are expected to live in c a m p u s residences or with their p a r e n t s , " and "All resident freshmen a n d sophomores must eat in c a m p u s facilities." The c o m p u l s o r y chapel ruling, which is a l r e a d y a p a r t of the present catalog, will read in part, "Worship services are held daily during the school year. A minimal attendance of twice a week is required of all students."

RLC Examines Chapel Proposal

B a r b Timmer reported that the Communications B o a r d h a s proposed that a new r a d i o station, WTAS-FM, be created. This new station, which will broadcast purely classical music, will not be iunder student control, as is WTASAM; however, Hope students will be offered the experience of working under professional technical advisors.

Asks For Referendum

Tuesday afternoon the Religious Life Committee b e g a n discussion of the p r o p o s a l s concerning c o m p u l s o r y chapel passed by the Student Senate on October 9. The committee first discussed the proposal for a student referendum on the subject of c o m p u l s o r y chapel. A m o t i o n b y Rev. Jack Stewart stating that the RLC does encourage a chapel referendum was passed u n a n i m o u s l y . REV. STEWART T H E N questioned the right of the Senate to ask for the referendum. He asked whether the Senate thinks it has power with respect to Administrative decisions such as the chapel question. He stated categorically that, in his opinion, it does not. Rev. Stewart called for a clarification of where decisions a r e made. Bob T h o m p s o n said that there-

ferendum is a means of discovering what are the " g o o d solid arguments" for and against compulsory chapel. Glen Pontier said that in any case student opinion should be known and might influence Administrative decisions. Pontier then moved that chapel exemptions be granted " o n the g r o u n d of religion differing from Christianity" and " o n g r o u n d s of conscience, wherethe individual finds that he m a y not p a r t a k e in c o m p u l s o r y w o r s h i p . " This is the third of the Senate p r o p o s a l s . AS PART OF T H E rationale for this p r o p o s a l the Senate stated the following: " T h i s is not to be construed as abolition of compulsory chapel, but rather as a long overdue r e f o r m . " Rev. Stewart attacked this rationale as an inherent contradiction. He said that the t h i r d p r o p o -

A nice place to stay A nice place to w o r k A nice place

sal would establish a policy in which " s o m e go and s o m e d o n ' t , " and this is in effect destroying the principle of compulsory chapel. The p r o b l e m s involved in implementing this p r o p o s a l were also discussed. Rev. Stewart a s k e d what guidelines could be d r a w n up to separate those who would wish exemption for real conscientious r e a s o n s f r o m "the g u y who doesn't want to get u p . " Dr. Elton Bruins agreed that in its present form p r o p o s a l three would not work and was quite " n a i v e , " PONTIER, WHO WROTE the Senate p r o p o s a l , said that those who wish exemptions should express their r e a s o n s in writing or come before a b o a r d to explain verbally. He said that the honesty of those students who do so should be accepted. Bob T h o m p s o n suggested that the mechanics of the p r o p o s a l be divorced f r o m the principle Pontier further proposed a vote on the principle leaving the details of implementation to be worked out later. Dr. Bruins moved instead that Senate p r o p o s a l three be sent to an RLC sub-committee to work out the concrete mechanics. This motion was passed. C h a i r m a n Lambert Ponstein appointed Rev. Stewart, c h a i r m a n , Sally Tickner, F r a n k Sherburne and Pontier to serve on the committee. The committee will report back next Tuesday.


Miss Timmer noted the creation of WTAS-FM "is not an attempt to replace WTAS-AM." The Communications Board is now in the process of t a k i n g a poll in dormitories and cottages concerning the student opinion of WTAS-AM and suggestions for its i m p r o v e ment. Peter Smith, a member of the Educational Policies Committee, reported that the Pass-Fail grading system will be voted u p o n next Wednesday evening. This new methoa ol g r a d i n g , il passed, will allow students to take required courses outside of their m a j o r for either a passing or a failing grade. It is hoped that this g r a d ing system w i l l p r o m o t e s t u d y outside of individual m a j o r s without the usual academic pressure. A Simon and Garfunkei concert is planned for Feb. 8 by the Cultural Affairs Committee in cooperation with several other schools including Calvin, Grand Rapids Junior College and Aquinas. President Craig Hollem a n said that Hope students would be admitted free of c h a r g e with student I.D. cards. Bus transportation to the G r a n d Rapids Civic Auditorium w i l l b e p r o v i d e d at a small cost to the students.

Hope Fraternities Help In Community Fund Drive H o p e College's six social f r a ternities h a v e been asked by the directors of the 1967 HollandZeeland C o m m u n i t y F u n d Drive for Hope College, to contact the small businesses in the area for contributions to the College.

Higher Horizons

Students Help Town Children By Janice Bakker Located in the ancient recesses of Van Vleck is a r o o m c o n t a i n i n g a vast a r r a y of toys, children's b o o k s , a sewing machine, huge piles of p a p e r s and two office desks. Operating from this melee of a p p a r e n t confusion is Higher Horizons - a n o r g a n i z a t i o n which holds a unique position in the college community. Supported financially this year b y the H o l l a n d Greater Community Fund a n d by the Holland City Council. Higher Horizons "is an attempt to equip children with the m e a n s - educational, social a n d cultural - . . . to accept responsibility," according to Bruce Struik, director of Higher Horizons. It is a m e a n s to involve more people with greater m e a n i n g , respect and responsibility in those affairs of society which effect them, to strengthen family life and to m a k e the activities of law enforcement and social services more accessible to those who need them m o s t , " he added. IN ORDER TO BROADEN and lift the horizons of children in town. Higher Horizons h a s recruited 3 0 0 Hope students and h a s assigned to each of them a b o y or girl who h a s been recommended ( u s u a l l y b y a teacher) to the p r o g r a m . Each student spends at least an hour a week with his or her little brother or sister, usually working on a one-to-one basis. After s o m e of her pupils became involved in Higher Horizons one public school teacher commented, "What a difference one outsider can m a k e to these children. I know it s o u h d s far-fetched but I honestly believe that s o m e of the children a r e showing m o r e interest in school t h a n they did before.

Dear Mr. Chief: V illage C hief Le Loi, South Vietnam Dear Mr. Chief,


OU PROBABLY D O N T remember us, but we are members of the student newspaper staff at Hope College. If you check your records from about two years a g o , you will find that students at our college raised over $ 6 , 0 0 0 at that time to help build a kindergarten, a hydraulic pump and some houses.

We remember how happy you were that we had offered to do this for you, because with the war in your country it is difficult to remain alive, let alone improve the structures in your village.


E WERE HAPPY, TOO, because we knew that we were not only helping our fellow human beings in general, (whatever that m e a n s ) but that we were also specifically helping in an endeavor that has cost so m a n y American ollars and lives in your country. We

thought that in some small way, we might be making a start towards relieving the suffering that they have caused. But something has happened, Mr. Chief. Maybe red tape and slow progress is the American way. Even if we do understand and accept it, weknow that you don't. That the money is still sitting in a bank is probably aggravating to your people.


LEASE TRY TOplacatethem. Maybe William Lederer and Eugene Burdick should have added another chapter entitled "The U g l y Dutchman , , to their book. We hope n o t We hope that your people can be patient for Just a litde while longer, because we mean well. We don't know what concrete hope we can give you. There is nobody on our campus who seems interested enough in in the project to spend time making sure that things get done. But the year is only one quarter over. Maybe something will happen. Sincerely,

'Come on guys, you know the ruling about food in the r o o m s . '

On the I n c r e a s e


OR MANY P A R E N T S , a shadow has been cast on an enjoyable weekend with their families by a letter they received, the contents of which are reported on page one of this issue. That letter was from Henry Steffens, Vice President for Finance and Trasurer of Hope College, and it told them that tuition will increase substantially next year.

Mr. Steffens is no happier about this than the parents are. H a v i n g to put an added financial burden on students is not a pleasant matter. We, both as students who must pay this increase and students who are concerned about the progress ot the College, share in jhe disappointment. But we also realize that it was a necessary move. The article on academic specialization that appeared in this newspaper s o m e weeks a g o points to the fact that it is becoming increasingly difficult for small independent colleges to stay afloat. T o overcome these difficulties, funds are needed.


LSO, O U R P R E S E N T F A C U L T Y and student body are the largest in Hope's history, and our building program is the most ambitious. In light ol these, the increase is not unreasonable.

Two things must be noted about this increase. The first is that Hope's tuition is still one of the lowest in the"Great Lakes Colleges Association. In fact, next year's tuition at Hope will be lower than what the tuition at most colleges was this year. It is evident that competent business management is as much responsible for Hope's success as is inspiring instruction.


ECOND, T H E INCREASE ITSELF is not necessarily to the detriment of the student. As Mr. Steffens pointed out, aid to deserving students will increase proportionate to thetuition increase. In addition, the inflationary pressure that drove tuition up probably has increased income. The burden, therefore, will not be unduly increased. It may even help the student. With additional resources at ib> disposal, the Administration may be able to provide the services, available at other colleges with higher tuition rates, that have not been provided here. A student union is at the top of this list. We therefore ask that the increase in tuition be looked at as a step forward for H o p e College, not just an added burden lor you.

Readers Speak Out

Dear Editor . In reply to a letter on m o r n i n g worship which a p p e a r e d in last week's anchor, let this correction be made. 1. There h a v e been others who h a v e offered this s a m e suggestion. I m a y h a v e " b o r r o w e d " it f r o m someone else. Plagiarism is not u n k n o w n a m o n g preachers. 2. My suggestion was that freshmen be required to attend chapel two m o r n i n g s each week, s o p h o m o r e s o n e m o r n i n g a n d that juniors a n d seniors be free not to attend. One criticism of this p l a n is that juniors a n d seniors would be encouraged to feel that they h a d g r a d u a t e d f r o m chapel. Could be! My feeling however, is that juniors and seniors might s a y " y e s " to m o r n i n g worship several m o r n i n g s each week simply b e c a u s e the College chose to give them the chance to s a y " n o . " Naive? Could be, but I d o n ' t h a p p e n to think so. Sincerely, Rev. William Hillegonds

A Letter to Pierre Pierre Bernheim 16 Avenue Hoche Paris, F r a n c e M y Dear Pierre, F o r g i v e me for not writing sooner, but as you know there is a w a r going on in the United States and I h a v e been in m y fallout shelter for several months. Without giving a w a y secrets, here is the military situation in the United States at the moment. T H E PENTAGON is still in the h a n d s of the government. An assault last weekend b y members of the 51st Light Peace Brigade, known as the Fighting Doves, supported by the 33rd Flower Battalion, failed and was repulsed by m e m b e r s of the 82nd A i r b o r n e Division of the U.S. Army. There was h e a v y fighting in the north p a r k i n g lot, and suicide units of the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) m a n a g e d to get to the steps of the building before they were turned back. Gen. N o r m a n Mailer of t h e 2 2 n d Heavy obscenity Corps was captured as were 600 other Militant Peace C o m m a n d o s . The attack started with a b a r r a g e of curse words followed b y an assault across the demilitarized zone with clubs, p o p bottles a n d tomatoes. IN F I E R C E H A N D - T O H A N D combat the loyal government t r o o p s held their g r o u n d , a n d by evening Army spokesmen were able to a n n o u n c e that the Pentagon was safe, at least for the moment. But while it turned out to be a military victory for the government, neutral observers here believe that President Johns o n ' s pacification p r o g r a m in the United States is failing. In order to win the war in the United States, Mr. J o h n s o n has to win the hearts

N o b o d y is forcing you to stay in this country. But then, p e r h a p s you like and enjoy the freedoms you h a v e here which vou wouldn't h a v e somewhere else. You are Americans, and you own a s h a r e of the United States of America. If you don't ,like the b o a r d of directors' actions, sell your s h a r e a n d join another country. There are m a n y foreigners eagerl y waiting to buy your share. Second question? What h a v e you d o n e for your country to deserve this s h a r e ? H a v e you fought for its independence? How a b o u t World War I or II? N o ? Well, what is it that you h a v e done? Negatively, yes, I know, you are protesters. But positively, what h a v e you contributed to this country to reap the benefits you t a k e so lightly? Do you r e g a r d democracy so lightly that a well regimented communist country would fit you better? Democracy is what we are fighting for, you know. Also, you must be v e r y p r o u d to know that you fed the Communists additional p r o p a g a n d a material, which they will obviously exploit to their greatest a d v a n t a g e . P e r h a p s ten or fifteen years f r o m now when your child is studying U.S. History, he'll ask you if you were in the Vietnamese war, then you can heroically tell him what a great d e m o n s t r a t o r you were.

a n d minds of the American people. This he is failing to do, and there is considerable speculation that his regime m a y be overthrown by N o v e m b e r , 1968. WHILE T H E PRESIDENT still has s u p p o r t in Washington, D.C., (his wife, Sen. Everett Dirksen a n d his future sonin-law) it's very h a r d to fine it in the countryside. There has been fighting in Madison, Wis., Boston, Mass., Oakland. Calif., and Brooklyn, N.Y. The military is dissatisfied with the civilian control of the situation and would like to wipe out the peace resisters once and for all. They want to bomb H a r v a r d . Yale, the University of Michigan, the University of Wisconsin a n d the University of California at Berkeley, but these targets, for political reasons, are still off limits. The military men claim they can't win the war if the peace m a r c h e r s continue to use the Dr. Benjamin Spock Trail. SO YOU SEE, m y dear Pierre, the situation in the United States is quite serious, and some experts predict it will go on for 20 years. 1 k n o w you are worried for our safety, but please be assured we are taking all precautions. We sleep in the fallout shelter, and H d e n e only goes out in the m o r n i n g to b u y bread a n d milk. 1 fly the French flag from my a u t o m o b i l e to show everyone 1 am neutral, and, if worse comes to worse, the embassy has assured us a cruiser will be sent to evacuate us.

anchor review



Secular Self Love in Fromm's 'The Art of Loving Editor's note; This week's anchor c r i t i q u e is a review of Eric Fromm's, "The Art of L o v f n g . ^ It is written by senior philosophy major Dick Shiels. By Dick Shiels P r o b a b l y the most f a m o u s notion contributed to o u r society b y Erich F r o m m in " T h e Art of Lovi n g " is that of the distinction between selfishness and self-love. It w a s F r o m m ' s b o o k that first assurred Americans that it was both n o r m a l a n d m o r a l l y acceptable to love oneself. After all, says F r o m m , isn't it the second c o m m a n d m e n t to " L o v e thy neighbor as thyself?" " If it is a virtue to love my neighbor as a h u m a n being, it must be a virtue, and not a vice, to love myself, since 1 too a m a h u m a n being." T H E AMERICAN PEOPLE, or for that matter the whole of Christ e n d o m , since the book h a s been translated into seventeen lang u a g e s , h a v e been willingto accept F r o m m ' s point once he h a s demonstrated that it is indeed straight New Testament thinking. Brahm a n n a t i o n s h a v e accepted it as well, as have Islam and Buddhism, but F r o m m m a k e s his appeals to them by d e m o n s t r a t i n g his affiliations with their respective theologies in other p a r t s of the book. Yet F r o m m ' s thinking is not

DICK SHIELS " s t r a i g h t New Testament" - nor is it straignt B r a n m a m c , Islamic or Buddhist. It is r a t h e r a secular h u m a n i s m that F r o m m offers - and while that's perfectly legitimate, it's not always apparent. T h e premise of F r o m m ' s w o r k , that it is h u m a n to love and that the only givers of love and true objects of love are h u m a n beings, is left implicit. But it is there, AS CHAPTER TWO opens with " a theory of love must begin

with a theory of m a n , of h u m a n existence," the reader is apt to accept the opening line and look for something new in what is to follow. But isn't this a new or at least u n p r o v e n premise? In support of It F r o m m s a y s only that it would be ludicrous to think that love originated in a n i m a l s lower t h a n m a n , but it apparently never occurs to him that love might be "of G o d " -- a view that might be closer to being " s t r a i g h t New Testament." Beyond that, F r o m m ' s focus is totally u p o n the second c o m m a n d ment, to the exclusion of the first. H e does discuss " l o v e of G o d , " but no where does he a d v o c a t e it a n d no where does he leave r o o m for a God that is l o v i n g m a n . God, like love, is a h u m a n product for F r o m m : " T h e c o n c e p t of God is only a historically conditioned one, in which m a n has expressed his experiences of his own higher powers. . T H E T I T L E S OF T H E four chapters offered suggest the kind of a p p r o a c h into which this thinking leads F r o m m . " I s Love an Art?" is chapter one, and the answer is obviously affirmative.

This m e a n s p o s t p o n i n g action on a large p a r t of President J o h n s o n ' s legislative prog r a m until next year. In addition, several of the President's key bills are being altered so that they fall short of his recommendations. T h e result is that Congress will deny the President most of what he requested this year, in contrast with the overwhelming s u p p o r t Congress g a v e his p r o g r a m in the last three years. Congress is about to let the first ceiling on i m m i g r a t i o n f r o m Latin America and Cana d a go into effect. This action is coming despite State Department w a r n i n g s that it will d a m a g e United States relations with these nations. The U.S. economic expansion moved Wednesday into its 81st month, the longest in hist o r y if it lasts t h r o u g h N o v e m ber and the g p v e r n m e n t ' s top economist, G a r d n e r Ackley, c h a i r m a n of the President's Council of Economic Advisers, s a y s " c h a n c e s of keeping it alive indefinitely are greatly improved."

By J o h n Nivala If you h a v e followed c a m p u s news very closely d u r i n g the last few weeks, you would h a v e noticed that certain people, including myself, have found a b r a n d new b a g to crawl into. This entails searching for the rationale behind such diverse social events and organizations as Homecoming, chapel and AWS. One g r o u p that h a s been particularly active in the field of " W h y ? " h a s been the Student Senate. It seems s t r a n g e t h a t this b o d y h a s never been asked to explain its existence. F r o m what has happened this fall, it could certainly use some clarification. LET'S EXAMINE this y e a r ' s record. As reported in the a n c h o r (which some feel is a d u b i o u s source), the first Senate meeting was one of structuring. Six new committees and seven new subcommittees were formed. Two members were elected to the Executive Board, and one of these was n a m e d p a r l i a m e n t a r i a n because " h e promised not to o p p o s e " the President. My gosh, that's real All-American politics, played just like the big boys in D. C. The meeting closed on a high note with the establishment of thetime and place for future meetings. The second meeting was, I feel, the only truly vital oneof the year. A very intelligent, s e a r c h i n g resolution r e g a r d i n g thechapel system was passed in the h o p e that "constructive changes will be m a d e . " Fat chance, A resolution is easy to p a s s but difficult to implement. While it embodied a tone of immediacy, the resolution h a s g o n e nowhere. It was passed on to the Religious Life Committee which a p p a r e n t l y r e g a r d e d it with as much respect as George Wallace would show to H. Rap Brown.

tone. F o r the faith F r o m m wishes to inspire is faith in love, not in a n y higher Being. And love, he s a y s explicitly, " i s a capacity of the mature, productive h u m a n c h a r a c t e r . " Selfish interests he here calls "secular concerns;" those of the self-loving, or of the man-loving, are left to be somehow sacred. His tone is religious, but it is a Godless religionness. That F r o m m ' s work is secular is not bad; to call it non-Christian is not to negate it but merely to identify it. That it can s o u n d religious and that it is r e a d as a " C h r i s t i a n book'" are m i s h a p s for which one cannot condemn the a u t h o r , but p e r h a p s are mishaps that ought to be pointed out. Beyond that at least one critical question must be asked of F r o m m from the Christian standpoint: can he justify empirically his fantastic faith in m a n without God? F r o m the Christian view it would be incredible to believe that merely by loving-on-one's-own o n e c o u l d overcome the s e p a r a t i o n and alienation that has plagued m a n and intrigued theologians t h r o u g h o u t history.

Here it is that F r o m m spells out the v a r i o u s f o r m s love takes: brotherly love, motherly love, erotic love, self-love, a n d finally love of God. " L o v e a n d Its Disintegration in C o n t e m p o r a r y Western Society" follows and m a k e s thepoint that capitalism and the life of love are not n a t u r a l bedfellows. Here one suspects that one of F r o m m ' s p u r p o s e s is to encourage social reform, but nothing definite is proposed. A POETIC P R E S E N T A T I O N of chapter four, " T h e Practice of Love," might read a good deal like I Corinthians 13. Love is disciplined, F r o m m says, and concentrating, patient and concerned; love requires faith and faith rests on courage. Love is the only answer to the problem of h u m a n existence. But on the other h a n d , chapter four in outline form might sound m o r e like the Boy Scout oath and that would indeed be closer to F r o m m ' s position, if not his

act the conclusion that the resolution is dying a slow death. But it was a beautiful attempt. T H E ONLY OTHER reported business was an announcement that p h o n e s would "beinstalled in each Dykstra lounge within seven to ten d a y s . " That was on October 13. Check your calendars, sports fans, because that was at least twelve d a y s ago. However, this is in ail p r o b a b i l i t y the fault of Michigan Bell. Let's hope so. The third meeting was one of resolution, resolution, resolution. If the Senate is nothing else, it is suggestive. The Administration was urged ( a s it was last y e a r ) to clarify the rules of the college for incoming freshmen. Nothing was mentioned about clarifying them for those of us who are alr e a d y here. It was urged (as it was last y e a r ) that the l i b r a r y extend its h o u r s on Sunday. T h e Senate did achieve a limited success with this last year, and it is e n c o u r a g i n g to note that t h e y follow up s o m e leads. After a presentation of the budgets (revised), the idea of a regional discount p r o g r a m was presented. Under such a p r o g r a m , students could shop (at reduced prices) in such vital market a r e a s as Marquette and Berrien Springs in addition to G.R., Detroit, and East Lansing. This idea expired with a s u r p r i s i n g speed. T H E LAST MEETING dealt with the problems of jurisdictional o v e r l a p p i n g and m o n e t a r y sensitivity. The AWS c a m e under specific attack. The Senate, which a p p r o p r i a t e s , not p a y s 44 per cent of the AWS budget, felt m o v e d to question the existence of this o r g a n i z a t i o n . Why should the women students h a v e a central judicial and o r g a n i z a t i o n a l b o d y when there a r e the house b o a r d s (non-unified but free) and


Student Court, which is composed of five men and only two women? Tsk, tsk. This was followed b y the weekly g a m e of "Resolution, resolution, who h a s a resolution?" There was another one on chapel, one on keeping Graves open all night, and one that p r o p o s e d a d d i n g m o r e members to the Communications Board. That was voted down because it involved overlapping. Finally, it was suggested that the fraternities help in r a i s i n g the funds necessary to install a new sidewalk. If that ever works, possibilities a r e limitless. Perhaps the f r a t s might send out deputation' teams to help recruit future students and teachers. However, that might be construed as overlapping on Administrative power. Problems, problems. I realize that by now, s o m e Senators might be questioning the r a t i o n a l e behind my existence. Be that as it may, I am p r e p a r e d to justify my existence. Is the Senate? P e r h a p s they need m o r e time to get moving. Up to now, the Senate h a s been as exciting as watching m i n o r s trying to get served anything but pizza at Skiies. The first few times it's f u n n y or exciting, but after awhile, it becomes a dray. T H I S C O L U M N was not intended to question the effectiveness of the Senate's representation nor its constitutional directions. 1 leave that to others. What 1 am interested in is an explanation of the Senate's intents, its goals with r e g a r d s to this year and this student body. It seems only fair that if the Senate can question the existence of a n organization that represents a portion of the student body, then we, as students, can question the existence of the b o d y that is supposed to represent all of us.

Parents Will See Dutch Face 3rd Place Albion Tomorrow The football season ends in just eight days. However, the Hope College Flying Dutchmen must p l a y two more g a m e s before hanging up the cleats for the year. One of those g a m e s will be played t o m o r r o w at Riverview Park against the third place Albion Britons. Last week, the Britons demolished Adrian, 34-0, while the Dutchmen spent the afternoon frolicking in the mud and losing, 14-7, to lowly K a l a m a z o o . N O N E T H E L E S S , T H E R E IS an excellent chance that they will win tommorrow, because tom o r r o w happens to be Parents' d a y , and the boys in Orange and Blue will certainly want to put on a good show for the folks.

Hope Downed by Kazoo, 14 - 7

AFTER EARLY LOSSES to Alma knd Olivet, the Britons h a v e come on strong, shutting out Kazoo, 6-0, and Adrian, 34-0. Coach Morley has 2 8 lettermen back f r o m last y e a r ' s MIAA championship team. L e a d i n g the s q u a d are co-captains Bob M o r a n , 220p o u n d defensive end and V a u g h n McGraw, a 195-pound half-back. Other offensive starters back from the 1966 unit are g u a r d s Paul Stevenson and Roger Higgens, and senior q u a r t e r b a c k Dick Vanderlinde. Also seeing action at QB has been Ron Isaac. Veteran defensive starters include all-MIAA middle linebacker Jim Dobbins, a 2 4 5 - p o u n d giant, and 2 3 5 - p o u n d tackle Joe Reed. Others are 2 2 5 - p o u n d tackle Tom Mikols and 2 0 0 - p o u n d linebacker Jim Knoblet. O N E OF T H E FEW bright spots on the H o p e scene the last couple of weeks h a s been the play of senior Tom Pelon, w h o goes both ways. On defense, Pelon plays rover back, and he lines up at end offensively. Fast becoming Gary F r e n s ' f a v o r i t e target, Pelon h a s caught 14 passes for 131 y a r d s in league competition.

Harriers Will Host MIAA Conference Meet Tuesday and Blue. Despite Bruggers' outstanding first-place finish, recorded in 21:31, Hope was able to capture only one of the next eight places as the Knights won, 23-37. Cal Osterhaven finished fourth for the Dutch, but far behind were Wayne Meerman, tenth; Dick Bisson, eleventh; and Paul H a r t m a n , thirteenth. The three defeats gives Hope a somewhat disappointing 3-7-1 season record, including a 2-3 MIAA mark. Coach Van Wieren himself has trouble believing his s q u a d ' s showing. " I can't believe how much stronger we are than last y e a r , " said the coach. "But the league is as s t r o n g this year than it's ever been." At T u e s d a y ' s MIAA meet, a total of 49 runners, seven f r o m each school, will compete.

Highlanders Beat Dutch On Fourth Quarter Goal The Hope College soccer team lost its sixth g a m e this weekend, d r o p p i n g a 2-1 decision to MacMurray College. MacMurray's inside right drew blood by putting a shot into Hope's net with only 2:35 gone in the first period. Fighting uphill from that point on, the Dutch evened the score in the same quarter. A1 Griswold, senior outside left, scored in a patented shot, heading the ball past the MacMurray goalie. At the time, Griswold was playing an unfamiliar position, taking over from Sy Nagel who had injured his foot defending against MacMurray's first goal. F r o m this point until halfway through the fourth period, the Dutch a n d the Highlanders played on even terms. Then MacMurr a y ' s outside left put in a tally


past Hope's goalkeeper, Jim Knott. This clinched the victory for M a c M a r r a y . The booters have one more chance to enter the win column, challenging a weak Wabash team in their last g a m e of the season.
