Another big push in recent weeks has been to get the Republican Party message out by distributing literature about their candidates and stand on the issues. The Hope Republicans said their biggest concern was simply getting stu-

Student responds to 10/16 Editor's voice To the Editor: I must admit that your c o l u m n in the 10/16 e d i t o n of the A n c h o r troubles me. In my opinion, "promoting sexual diversity" is not at all the same as "promoting diversity and u n d e r s t a n d i n g with students of color." It seems that you are saying they lie on the same playing field, especially when you write, " R e c o g n i z i n g the cultural differences between people of different sexual orientations is just as valid as h o n o r i n g those of students of color." I beg to differ. I'll be honest with you. I believe that h o m o s e x u a l i t y is w r o n g and that it is a perversion of G o d ' s plan for men and w o m e n .

I want to c o m m e n d T h e A n c h o r on its advocacy of the arts at Hope this year. I think you are doing a great j o b and a wonderful service to all of the students on our campus. I am disappointed, however, in the lack of coverage of Images: A Reflection of C u l t u r e s , an event which occurred over the w e e k e n d . Although, regretfully, I w a s not able to attend this weekend to support my r o o m m a t e and other friends w h o were involved, I

think the college c o m m u n i t y as a whole would have benefited f r o m knowing more about other events this w e e k e n d . T h e purpose of Images. according to the International Ed. office w e b site, is "to promote racial h a r m o n y by p r o v i d i n g an opportunity f o r students of diverse ethnic and racial background to promote the need f o r mutual respect and u n d e r s t a n d i n g . " I think the " E d i t o r ' s Voice" column last weekend could have easily promoted this event, but lo, you chose to speak of the l a c k of l e t t e r s to the e d i t o r

regarding certain issues (there were t w o letters to the editor last w e e k regarding important and relevant issues on c a m p u s and in the community... w e did not need to hear about h o w w e are not responding to the E d i t o r ' s column). H o p e f u l l y in the future. T h e Anchor will continue its advocacy of the arts, but also make sure that other important, informing, and relevant events occurring on c a m p u s are promoted.

Hope College's football team knows that their season is finished. They know that they can't make the playoffs. But that's not stopping them from winning. The D u t c h m e n traveled to Milwaukee on Saturday to take on Wisconsin-Lutheran, marking the first time the t w o played each other as M I A A rivals. T h e Warriors' football team officially joined the conference following the 2001 season, and is currently the school's only sport that c om petes in the M I A A . After trailing in the third quarter, the D u t c h m e n w e r e a b l e to mount a comeback and never looked back as they rode to a 4127 victory over the Warriors. T h e win puts Hope at 3-5 overall and 2-2 in the conference, w h i c h significantly increases the chances of ending the season at the .500 mark. T h e D u t c h m e n were able to shatter several records on the day as well. Quarterback Phil Butler ( ' 0 4 ) already has five Hope football records, and he added a sixth on Saturday as he threw f o r 4 7 7 yards against the Warriors.
