He told me that he was looking for one of his friends and when I told him this was an all girls dorm, he appeared to get a little confused. He then said, 4I know, he told me I could find him here'." The unidentified man then went into the basement, where two other Lichty residents saw him. Both the girl who admitted him into the dorm and the girls who saw him in the basement thought that he had had too much to d r i n k . H e a p p a r e n t l y remained unnoticed in the dorm until around 4:30 when a girl on third floor kicked him out of the bathroom where she was washing her face after he made threatening motions towards her.

Students May Be Next In AIDS Epidemic (CPS) - College students may be t h e n e x t m o s t l i k e l y population to be at risk of contracting AIDS, the head of a major national campus health group is warning on a national speaking tour. The reason, says Richard Keeling, health director at the University of Virginia and c h a i r m a n of the American College H e a l t h Association (ACHA) AIDS task force, is that students are more likely to be sexually promiscuous and — in youthful feelings of immortality — less likely to practice safe sex. In J u n e , m o r e o v e r , U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop warned Congress of a potential "explosion" in the number of teens who get AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome), a fatal virus that destroys the body's immune system and renders the victim v u l n e r a b l e to o t h e r w i s e innocuous germs. The disease is spread by contaminated blood transfusion, using dirty needles to inject drugs and some kinds of sexual contact. And when students get to c a m p u s , e x p l a i n e d ACHA spokeswoman Ann Higley, " I t ' s a period of exploration" when many students experiment with sex and drugs for the first time. " I t ' s their first taste of freedom, and often there's an u n w i l l i n g n e s s to t a k e responsibility." Some colleges have tried to warn students by distributing flyers. Installing condom

vending machines to promote "safe sex" and — like the University of Massachusetts and Mount Holyoke, Smith, Amherst and Hampshire colleges did September 29 — stage elaborate programs to educate campus residents about the disease. Schools seem to be announcing new AIDS efforts weekly. Just last week, for example, Michigan State said it would start testing students anonymously for AIDS, while the University of Illinois said it might require any student it suspected of being a health threat to take an AIDS test. In Pennsylvania, meanwhile, Millersville University set up an AIDS Review Board to plan how to deal with the disease on campus in the future. Still, the ACHA's Keeling thinks colleges are doing a bad job teaching students about AIDS. More than three-quarters of the nation's campuses have done "little or nothing" to teach students, he figured. "We're starting to talk in terms of obligations, not option. AIDS education is the moral and ethical obligation of colleges, i r r e s p e c t i v e of w h a t e v e r discomfort with the topic t r u s t e e s or a l u m n i or t h e community may feel," Keeling said. The Department of Education also has i gnored its responsibility to develop AIDS education programs, Keeling charged. "In an ideal world the Department of education would have' taken substantial

responsibility for developing AIDS education plicy, but that support has been absent." Higley r e p o r t e d only 75 students have been diagnosed as having AIDS-related illnesses, but added the disease has a long latency period, meaning others may be infected and not know it.

Health Clinic Will Answer AIDS Questions What's new on campus? You can write the Health Clinic with your questions or concerns regarding AIDS. AIDS is a very pressing issue today and needs to be addressed. More than 28,492 cases have been diagnosed in the United States as of December of 1986. Education is the key to slowing down the spread of this deadly disease. Along with the support of the faculty and staff 1 will be arranging educational meetings, sending out information, and compiling resources in our community to help inform you, t h e s t u d e n t , of y o u r responsibility and your suceptability to this fatal but preventable disease. What really is AIDS? AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency S y n d r o m e which means the immune system does not fight off infection as it normally would. A person with AIDS is more vulnerable to infection and specifically pneumonia, meningitis, tuberculosis, and certain forms of c a n c e r . E v e n t u a l l y they become so overwhelmed with disease they die. HTLV III s t a n d s for H u m a n T Lymphotrophic Virus Type III and is the specific virus that causes AIDS. The HTLV III attacks the lymphocytes which are a type of white blood cells. Lymphocytes include several sub groups which work together to operate the immune system and prevent infection in the body. One type is the Helper T Cells, preventing them from doing their job of preventing infection. What is ARC? Aids Related Complex includes a variety of clinical conditions that may occur as a result of HIV or HTLV III infection, but which do not meet the Center for Disease Control's definition of AIDS. Symptoms may include chronic swollen glands, recurrent fevers, unintentional weight loss.

chronic diarrhea, lethargy, minor alterations of the immune system (less severe than those that occur with AIDS), and oral Yeast infection. How is AIDS spread? AIDS is not easily transmissible believe it or not. It is spread through sexual contact, needle sharing, or less c o m m o n l y t h r o u g h transfusions of infected blood or blood components. Direct blood to blood or semen to blood contact appears to be necessary to transmit this virus. There is no evidence that AIDS can be spread through air, water, food, or casual body contact. If this was the case the number of people affected would be even greater. I invite you to write me with your questions on AIDS.

Students in need of funding for the current and next academic terms were urged today to order a free financial aid planning calendar from The Scholarship Bank. This vital planner includes critical aid deadlines, addresses and phone n u m b e r s of aid sources and tips on applying for aid. According to the director, Steve Danz, over 500 million dollars is available in private aid to college students, and in many cases can cover up to twenty-five percent of a student's annual college costs. These funds are contributed by corporations, t r a d e , civic and non-profit foundations. They are normally a w a r d e d on n o n - t r a d i t i o n a l basis, such as a c a d e m i c standing, college major, geographic p r e f e r e n c e s , and even on a student's willingness to undertake a special research A

Police, however, were unable to establish any connection between the arsons on the different campuses. In a p r e s s r e l e a s e t h a t mysteriously showed up at The Daily Illini offices last week, however, the anonymous group promised more anti-greek "direct action" because "local social-service agencies have received an alarming number of calls from female victims of rape occuring in fraternity houses."

Entertainment Glenn-Lund Dance Puts On Exciting Show By Julie Thornes anchor Staff Writer Hope College had the privilege of presenting the Glenn-Lund Dance Company Thursday and Friday Nov. 5 and 6 in Dewitt Center Theatre. These highly acclaimed dancers have performed throughout the United States and Europe including appearances at major festivals in the Netherlands, London, Paris, the World Trade Center and many more. Having achieved such fame, they are now a member company on the touring roster of the New England Foundation for the Arts and the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts. They are a resident company of the White Mountain Summer Dance Festival. The company was founded by Laura Glenn and Gary Lund in 1983 and has been performing successfully ever since. The program began with an intriguing piece titled ^Engress'* choreographed by Laura Glenn, music by Bill Buchen, and costumes by Julie Schwolow. All seven dansers in the company participated. The costumes were unitards in soft pastel colors; pinks, purples, and one brown. Sparkling arrows were on each dancer's knee pointing down to his or her ankle. The music began, and suddenly, one dancer ran on to. the dimly lit stage only to disappear behind the curtain as another leaped into view. One at a time, they appeared and disappeared running, leaping, and rolling on to the stage as the music pulsed on, never changing. Then they all emerged as one group in the center of the stage. Although they seemed to be working together as a unit, each dancer was dancing his or her own dance-all executed the same movement but in an individual pattern. For example, each leaped from a crouched position on the floor to one of complete extension in the air at different times. This kept the audience eyes jumping from one dancer to another. The number created a feeling of tense anticipation for the next burst of energy and emotion. The next piece, <4The Good Life," was performed by Laura Glenn and Gary Lund. Each wore blue work clothes, the type of clothing one would expect to see on a mechanic. The dancers portrayed a newly married couple in the early stages of their lives together. The theme was work, hard, tedious work which the dancers illustrated by executing the same motions again and again with tired, stressed expressions on their faces. In contrast, one part d e m o n s t r a t e d a t i m e of relaxation and "fun in the sun" at the beach. Next, followed a major step in their lives ^ the birth of' their

child. Then, the woman had to carry the baby as she worked. Silence filled the stage as the piece ended. The couple slowly stopped the mechanical motions and looked tiredly at on another. The w o m a n pulled a handkerchief from her pocket, wiped her forhead, then wrung the sweat from the cloth. The t h i r d p i e c e , choreographed by Gary Lund, was titled <4 Wellspring," and, as the name suggests, water plays a major role in the number. The sound of wind and waves at the ocean began the piece creating an eerie mood on stage. The dancers, wearing light orange and light yellow unitards trudged slowly into view in a compact, single line leaning on each other as though exhausted. They crossed the stage, reversed direction, and started to come back. Then the continuity was broken. Suddenly the whole line disintegrated. The dancers stretched and pulled away from the unit. The tempo increased and the dancers began sliding across the floor. Sometimes one dancer would crawl on top of another forcing him or her to bend to the floor. They s e e m e d to r e s e m b l e creatures, little creature in the sea staying together like a family. The music started to fade, s o m e of t h e f a m i l y members retreated behind the curtain as though retiring for the night. All left but two who remained to play and refresh themselves with the water. Buy this time, the music has stopped, the only sounds were those of waves and wind. The lights faded, but the piece was not finished. To the audiences surprise, the stage was reilluminated with a soft yellow glow. E a c h d a n c e r entered carrying a glass bowl of water and a red towel. They

situated themselves in a circle sitting on the floor and slowly dipped their hands in the water a s though a m a z e d by its consistency. F i r s t , they began letting droplets fall from their fingers. They became more playful as the movement progressed, splashing water on their faces and on each other. Suddenly the stage was alive with excitement. The dancers soaked their towels in the bowls and smacked each other with them. They slid across the slippery floor a m i d s t spraying water. Slowly the light began to form a circle around the dancers. The rest of the stage d a r k e n e d . The c i r c l e grew smaller and the dancers slowed their movements. Each retreated back to his or her own bowl, each dancer luxuriating the cleansing, cooling feeling of the water on their bodies. The stage went black. After intermission, the second half began with a piece called 4, Voices" in which costumes and life-like plastic figures played a major role. Some were larger then life, some smaller. Each resembled abstract pictures of men in different body positions placed on the stage. One was a picture of two men together, one carrying the other. Two dancers entered the stage in exactly the same position as that figure. Gracefully, the dancer swept the other to his feet only to sweep him over his shoulder and across his back again. They continued this process alternating so that at times one would be carried and the other would be carried. Effortlessly, they swung each other upon their back and then down to the floor again in an intricate pattern twisting, turning and lifting as though together they were one body moving across the floor. Finally, they reached the other

side and disappeared behind the curtain. No sooner had they made their exit, then three other dancers entered the stage in bright unitards. Each unitard was colored with intensly bright colors which seemed to outline different muscles and accentuate certain bones on each dancer. The human body and its abilities seemed to be the underlying theme as the dancers tested the limitation and freedoms their bodies allowed by twisting, leaping, and rolling across the stage. In contrast to 'Voices," in 44 F a b l e of C o n t e n t s , " t h e following piece, the dancers wore plain, blue, baggy shirts and pants, the type that a prisoner might wear. The dancers seemed to portray prisoners. Blocks that looked like c e m e n t w e r e positioned on the floor creating a prison-like setting and the dancers appeared to be trapped in their immediate enviroment like prisoners in a cell. A small table was positioned downstage on the left side. The dancers, one at a time, used the table to play ludicrous, little games. For example, one would pour water from a flask into a beaker, leave it on the table and walk away. Another would pour water into a different beaker, drink from it and walk away. Next another would pull a large contraption resembling tinkertoys, play with it and leave. During these little games, the other dancers interacted with each other, sometimes aggressively as though about to s t a r t a fight, other t i m e s playfully. Then, in the middle of the movement, all the dancers would freeze and feel their a r m s or legs as though they felt a pain in them. Suddenly the music would play a harsh note and the d a n c e r s would double over clutching their stomachs as

though the jarring music caused them pain. In the end, they retreated to his or her own block on the floor and swayed cautiously to the music alone. The l a s t w a s relievingly comical. It was titled "The Presidential Tango" featuring recorded excerpts from selected speeches by Ronald Reagan. The dancers wore white shirts, grey slacks with suspenders and red carnations. The theme of the piece seemed to emphasize confusion a s the dancers huddled together and nervously followed on another. Never wanting to stand alone while President Reagan announced, 44lt didn't have to be this way." They seemed confused as to what they were doing and why they were doing it. This, perhaps, demonstrated some indecision on the part of the American people on political issues. Sometimes one dancer would run to center stage and raise his hands in the peace sign. Immediately, the other dancers would do the same and cluster about the one who had the courage to take a stand, hoping that he had the answer. The lights went out for a moment and then flashed on again showing the dancers standing together uncertainly waving their hands in t h e air showing their fingers in

the peace sign with confused expressions on their faces. All the pieces were moving, high energy pieces leaving the audience breathless after each climaxed and finished. The combination of the ability of the dancers, the use of costumes, lighting, and set, and of course, the excellent choreography of Laura Glenn and Gary Lund r e s u l t e d in a n e x c i t i n g performance. It was definitely a f a n t a s t i c addition to Hope College's Great Performance Series.

It Pays To Graduate



WASHINGTON, D.C. (CPS) It pays to graduate from college. College students who graduate earn an average of $672 more a month than students who drop out of college before graduating, the U.S. Census B u r e a u estimated in a report released October 1. They gross an average of $1,841 a month, while people who hold two-year degrees average $1,346 a month. " T h e p i e c e of p a p e r , " concluded the Census Bureau's Robert Kominiski in a statement accompanying the report, called "What's It Worth?" m e a n s something. (Diplomas) mean something to employers and to the success of individuals." Law, dental and med school grads, the study found, earned about five times as much per month as high school dropouts. People who earned doctorates made a little more than four times more than high school dropouts, who average $693 a month, while students with fouryear undergrad degrees made more than twice as much.

Library Work Moves inside By Tad Hoogendoorn Special to the anchor Over the past couple of months as you have walked by it, you hve obviously noticed the progress made on the exterior of the new Van Wylen Library. All of the benches, trees, and sidewalks do indeed look great, but have you ever wondered how the inside is coming along? Ever since the completion of the exterior of the building this summer, crews have been busy working on the interior of Van Wylen. A few weeks ago, all of the library employees were invited to take a tour of the new library, and they saw they described as "incredible". The most prominent feature of Van Wylen is its size. It holds four floors and a massive basement, giving much more room for book stacks and student study areas. The basement is yet u n f u r n i s h e d . W h e n it is completed, it will hold a large number of book stacks, and also feature a few small student study rooms.

The main floor will be a busy center of activity. The main entrance features a double set of doors that will serve as a windbreak. A f t e r passing throught he second set of doors, library patrons will have to ascend a few steps to get to the main level of the first floor. The first floor will contain the majority of the offices, a room containing vending machines, and of course, lots of book stacks. The second and third floors are still quite b a r e , but when completed will generally be devoted to book stacks and a few study rooms. The fourth and final floor is almost completely furnished. The walls and ceilings are already painted, and carpet covers the entire floor. The two main features on the top floor are the high cathedral ceilings and the skylight above the top of the stairs going to the fourth floor. And of course, the view is incredible. Other interesting physical features of the building include individual study carrels built into the walls on most floors. Also, all

On Monday evening, Laurie Straud, a Peace Corps representative, held a movie and slide presentation entitled, "The Toughest Job You'll Ever Have." T h e p u r p o s e of t h e presentation was to explain to interested students the current changes going on in the corps and to give them the basic facts on what the Peace Corps does. The Peace Corps works in i m p o v e r i s h e d and underprivelged nations at the r e q u e s t of t h o s e n a t i o n s . Currently the Peace Corps has v o l u n t e e r s w o r k i n g in 62 different countries. Up until recently competition for Peace Corps spots had been heavy, the Corps actually had to refuse many qualified applicants. This was in part due to lack of funding and support from the Reagan administration. This has dramatically changed, the Corps plan on near-doubling its curent membership from 5,600 to 10,000. The most important needs for the Peace Corps are college

graduates with degrees in or relating to forestry, fisheries, and agricultural-extension. The Corps also has a need for graduates in teaching, health, skilled trades, and business. There are 60 different work fields in the Peace Corps. 85 percent of them require a college degree. Interested applicants m u s t fill out a 13-page application in which they must include in detail everything they have ever been active in, school, work, classes, school activities, clubs, community service, etc. Applicants must also pass a physical health test and complete 3 months of training which takes place in the country that they will serve in. During the 3 m o n t h s l a n g u a g e , technical, and crops cultural training is emphasized. Straud, who spent three years in Thailand, said she joined the Peace Corps because she had a l w a y s b e e n i n v o l v e d in community service and she had also been interested in other countries and their cultures. The Peace Corps was a logical way to

Retail Prices, Nao, And TV Commercials Editor's note: The following article is the ninth in a series which will chronicle the exploits, adventures, and thoughts of David Lambert during his travels in Japan on the Japan May Term last spring. By David Lambert My second week in Tokyo was a time in which the unfamiliar began to look commonplace, and the city began to blend together. T h e r e were some new experiences — I went to a Bhuddist worship service, and discovered the difficulties inherent in using a Japanese toilet for the number two job. A Japanese toilet requires extremely strong thigh muscles because it is basically like a Western style toilet without a pedestal. To use one, you must squat and relieve yourself without falling over — quite a trick. I had occasion to use one when a person who was in the 4 'handicapped" (Western style) stall in a public bathroom did not come out. When I finished my struggle to use the J a p a n e s e toilet, I emerged from the stall to find a man who worked for Meiji Gakuin, who had come along on that day's expedition, outside. After he heard my complaint about the toilets he quipped, 4< When I visited your country, I had that problem too." In my second week in Tokyo, I also discovered that Akihabara, Tokyo's retail electronics district, is the ultimate place to ogle stereo equipment. Prices are higher there than they a r e in the U.S. because Japanese firms would prefer to export their merchandise. In addition, prices are higher because there are generally twice as m a n y middlemen in J a p a n than there are in America between the wholesale and retail levels. As an example of the price difference, the Sony Walkman Pro, which retails for $250-$300 here retails for the equivalent of $340-$365 there. One item which was expecially high-priced was the Shure V15 type five phono cartridge — imported from Illinois. Here, it costs about $150. There, it costs 66,000 yen, or about $440. In any case, the electronics were f a n t a s t i c : A k i h a b a r a offered floor after floor of mindboggling equipment. The equipment is mostly high or low class; very little of it is mid line. Endless shelves of amplifiers, turntables, CD players, cassette decks and digital audio tape decks were enough to give an audio enthusiast like myself heart palpitations. My trip to Akihabara provided me with another chance to get lost in Tokyo. However, this time I knew how to get lost. 1 planned to follow a train line which ran east-west from Akihabara to the Ochanomizu and Suidobashi station. After I had been walking for a while, I discovered that I had followed the wrong train line

— a line which ran roughly northsouth. No harm was done though. I asked some people in a record shop where I was, and hopped on the subway when I found out. Thereafter, I depended on the sun much more to orient myself, and believed falsely that subway stations were close enough together that I could always walk until I found a station if 1 got lost. It was about this time that I formulated the erroneous theory that Japanese people do not cheat on the subway system because to cheat the subway system would be a breach of f a m i l y honor. I had been cheating the system of small amounts of money — ten or twenty yen here, a hundred yen there — and felt guilty about it, although not guilty enough to stop cheating. I theorized that Japanese people would not cheat the system because it would violate their family's honor. In fact, I was wrong: quite a few Japanese people cheat the subway system without guilt if they think that nobody in their group will find out. Bruce Wilkerson, the professor who taught the American Studies class, pointed out that gaijin think that Japanese people have rigorous individual moral standards because, their moral behavior in groups is so good. In fact this is not the case: in private, morality is generally non-existent. Of course, it is a caricature to say the Japanese people h a v e no i n d i v i d u a l morality: I spent fruitless words trying to convince Tom Sato that bilking the subway system of a few yen per ride Is the right thing to do. My argument was that because everyone cheats the system, subway fares a r e higher than they would be if everyone was honest. Thus, those who pay the correct fare are fools because they are paying more than they should for their rides. Tom's argument was simple: 44 just be honest," he implored, dodging the philosophical reasons not to be. On Wednesday of my second week In Tokyo, my home stay began. I had met my host, Naonori (Nao) Kimura, on the previous Friday at a reunion for the alumni of the Meijl Gakuin program to Hope. Nao was twenty-five, and taught English In high school. After our first meeting, I had the impression that Nao lived alone. A family did not materialize until I was on the way to his house. Then he told me .that he was living with his parents, and had a brother and sister, both In their teens. This was my first Indication that Nao might be having some problems with his family. As It turned out, he was: his family problems centered around Nao's career choice. Nao's father wanted him to join the family business; he owns one of the most respected fishing supply businesses In Tokyo, and has several stores. The stores have been In the family for three generations, and

because Nao Is the oldest son, his father had expected that after he retired, Nao would inherit the business. The problem was that Nao wanted no part of the business. As a teacher, he was not making enough money to move out of the house, so Nao was stuck under his father's roof unless he joined the business as his father wanted him to do. Because of this conflict, there d i d n ' t s e e m to b e m u c h communication within the family on vital matters: it seemed, for example, that Nao had told Meiji Gakuin that he wanted to host a student without clearing it e n t i r e l y with his f a m i l y m e m b e r s . His p a r e n t s and siblings were cordial enough to me when I arrived, but they didn't seem thrilled by my p r e s e n c e . P a r t of t h e i r ambivalence towards me might have been because of the fact that Nao was the only member of the family who could speak good English-his siblings came out with o c c a s i o n a l English sentences, as did his mother, but it was hard to judge how good they were at speaking the language. His mother's grasp of English was especially amorphous: she greeted me in what seemed to be fluent English when I arrived, but her proficiency seemed to d e c l i n e d a i l y . F i n a l l y she apologized to me because she could not speak English (in English, of course). Nao's father was easier to figure out — he spoke no English, save for a perfunctory word or two. As a result, I communicated with him mostly through the judicious use of grunts. I was again confronted with the fact that I should have learned some Japanese before I went to Japan. The home stay lasted from Wednesday afternoon to Sunday night. During that time Nao's family gradually warmed up to me: by the night of the barbecue at Nao's uncle's apartment, I had won them over on my own merits. Nao's father grunted in a kinder, m o r e understanding tone, and they Invited me back for dinner the next Sunday. Some exerpts from my journal about the homestay follow: I went on a quick tour of Tokyo with Nao today. We went to Tower Records in Shlbuya, w a l k e d t h r o u g h t h e NHK television studios, observed the view from Tokyo Tower, and walked through Roppongl (a district which features a host of clubs and discos). Tower Records was a disappointment (Tower Records In Manhattan Is much better) but going there gave me a chance to see justice being meted out on the streets of Shlbuva. As we w a l k e d t h r o u g h Shlbuya this morning, we saw a shopekeeper who was wrestling with a man on the sidewalk who was somewhat unkempt and apparently drunk. The man, who was rumored to have stolen something from the shopkeeper's store, was struggling weakly to

extricate himself from the loose headlock the shopkeeper held him in. The police were said to be on the way, but I didn't watch the

Hunger Remains A Problem In Central America Editor's note: The following was provided by the Mortar In spite of today's vast a r r a y of knowledge and technological advances, we a r e still unable to feed the people of the world. Contrary to popular belief, world hunger is not a thing of the past, but is instead a very real problem of the present. The thought of "out of sight, out of mind" does not alleviate the fact that hunger continues to be a major contributor a s well a s a cause of worldwide fatalities. Hunger p e r m e a t e s many regions of the world including Africa, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, South America, and Latin America. The Latin American hunger problem is somewhat perplexing, for they have the capabilities to curtail this dilemma, but, as of yet, have failed to do so.

t e r r i t o r i e s . T h i s l a c k of education inhibits the ability of Latin American people to help themselves. They then become dependent upon others for help, such a s the government or charitable nations, who only give relief sporadically, if at all. A second m a j o r cause c o n t r i b u t i n g to u n d e r f e d populations is the presence of social inequality. In Honduras, 44 percent of the people a r e landless and 90 percent of rural families a r e too poor to afford an adequate diet. In G u a t e m a l a , C e n t r a l America's richest, largest, and most industrialized nation, two thirds of the national income goes to one quarter of the p o p u l a t i o n . 66 p e r c e n t of Guatemalan f a r m land is owned by only 3 percent of f a r m families, and 83 percent of the rural population lives on lots so small the land can't adequately

If this is the case, to the large government f a r m s in then why isn't hunger being an attempt to support their families, but can only muster 50 eliminated? Hunger is caused by a number cents to 2 dollars per day in of i n t e r r e l a t e d f a c t o r s . A wages. P e r h a p s the heart of the grassroots cause is the lack of education within countries, to hunger problem is created by which Latin America is no governmental indifference. The exception. Though education is goverments of Latin America obtainable, it is usually only h a v e for the most part neglected a c h i e v e d by the p r i v i l e g e d to implement strong education classes, and rarely by rural systems, have misappropriated i n h a b i t a n t s .

These cash crops replace the staple food that were once grown in the region, causing many Latin American countries to import much of the food used for i n t e r n a l c o n s u m p t i o n . Any attempt to alter the economics and social structures of the countries is brutally repressed by the goverment. Any threats to the privileged classes are viewed a s intolerable and human rights a r e thrown to the wind, as often times whole villages a r e massacred. By repressing any efforts to improve social inequality, the government is able to maintain a vast supply of cheap labor, which m a k e s t h e p r o f i t a b i l i t y of exports much higher, thus enabling the subsequent p u r c h a s e s of m i l i t a r y equipment.

No s i n g l e r e m e d y c a n possible cure a problem that results in the deaths of tens of thousands of children in the world every day, as well as many adults. Starvation is only a portion of the slaughter caused by hunger. Malnourished bodies a r e more susceptible to disease, decrease productivity, lead to higher infant mortality rates, and shorten life expectancies. Major reforms in a variety of disciplines a r e necessary to curb the atrocities of hunger. An obvious start is the needed support of governmental units. This s u p p o r t is not easily obtainable, but for hunger to ever be completely eradicated, it is essential. In light of this fact it is n e c e s s a r y to r e d i s t r i b u t e agrarian land back to private ownership. Steps have been taken in Central America to do this. In Nicaragua, over the last few years, more than 50,000 families have been given title to lands under agrarian reform. Though there is still a long way to go, this is a formidable step in the right direction. By giving land back to those who have been displaced by war (numbering in the millions), people will be able to get away from dependence



of complex networks that need to be managed in order to bring this problem under control. Efforts a r e under way to vigorously combat hunger, yet the fight cannot be won without more support, cooperation, and hard work. Organization such a s the P e a c e Corps and Oxfam of America are just the tip of the iceberg for a hunger free Central America and, some day, world.

LAMBERT cont. from page 8 spectacle long enough to find out if they ever got there. We also went to see a couple of the shops Nao's father owns. One of the stores takes up four or five floors of a building whose floor space per floor is about that of a medium to large American newspaper shop. One thing which contiunally amazes me is the fact that almost everything in Tokyo s e e m s m o r e v e r t i c a l than horizontal, although Tokyo is not a particularly tall city. A quick visit to one of Nao's aunts was also part of the itinerary. Her apartment was five floors up, above another fishing store which Nao's father owns. The apartment was fairly spacious by Tokyo standards. Two rooms — the main room and a bedroom, plus a small laundry area — were in view, and one or two bedrooms may have lurked behind a couple of closed doors. The main room was a combination living room, kitchen, and dining room. The window there had a great view of the railroad tracks. We sat on the couch in the living room area as Nao talked with his aunt. I offered a few tentative Japanese words, such as t4 Tokyo keko des." I thought t h a t m e a n t < 4 T o k y o is wonderful," but it turned out to mean something like 44 (I've) eaten enough of Tokyo: it's good." The children of Nao's aunt —

two girls and one boy, all preschool age — played a video game on the floor. A baby crayfish on the coffee table sat rather forlornly in a red plastic bucket with a few pebbles on the bottom. Childish pictures of strangely distorted animals were displayed on a filing cabinet next to the couch. Water stains spotted the living room ceiling, which also sported three bare fluorescent tubes. There was an oriental rug on the tatami in the bedroom, a few Japanese dolls in their protective cases, and a pink quilted cover on the phone. The most notable thing about our visit was the envelope Nao's aunt handed him. It was a piece of "happy mail:" inside there was a questionnaire and a letter from a computer dating service which p r o m i s e d a " h a p p y beginning," a 4 'happy time," and a "happy ending." 1 had the distinct feeling that Nao was a little pissed at his aunt for her invasion of his privacy, a feeling which was augmented whe he tore up the happy mail and tucked it carefully back inside its envelope. Y e s t e r d a y , ( S u n d a y ) , the Kimuras treated me to a tour of the J a p a n e s e equivalent of Williamsburg. The name of the place is Nihon Minka-en, and it's located in Kawasaki city. There were craftsmen making traditional straw sandals and raincoats, and plenty of historic

houses and shops. After our tour of the village, we ate lunch at a restaurant whose menu was a cross between Japanese and American cooking. I had onion soup and fried pork which I ate with a knife and fork (gasp). What followed was supposed to be a trip down to Yokohama, but turned out to be a tour of Japanese traffic jams. We ended up s t o p p i n g only once in Y o k o h a m a to o b s e r v e a miniature road rally which was being conducted with surprisingly powerful radiocontrolled, gas-powered cars. The cars were only about a foot and a half or two feet long, but they were doing a remarkable job of tearing up the turf. We finally stopped at one of the family's fishing supply stores. This store was run by another one of Nao's uncles. His aunt, uncle and cousins lived above the store in an apartment which we went up to for a barbecue. The patio where we had the barbecue was at the back of the apartment, and f e a t u r e d a r a t h e r unassuming view of a parking lot. Bare bulbs were hung artlessly on a clothesline for the occasion. About eight members of Nao's family and I gathered around the large boxy grill at the center of the patio. We barbecued lamb, beef, squid, and potatoes on the grill. There was also sashimi.

which was very good because it h a d b e e n m a r i n a t e d in something, watermelon, (a real luxury) and ice cream. After I had become quite full, I stretched out on the patio with my feet near the grill, and had my head in the living room — the living room and patio were separated by a sliding door. Casey Kasem was on the radio, and I was so comfortable I didn't want to get up. Nao, who was lying beside me, was not quite as comfortable as I was, because his family was talking about his future marital plans. While I was at the Kimuras, 1 watched a lot of television with them. Quite a bit of Japanese TV is home grown, although some American movies and TV shows are imported, and are dubbed flawlessly. Sometimes the effect of the dubbing was hilarious, as it was when I happened to tune in Jimmy Swaggart waving a Bible and speaking in Japanese. The dubbing technicians had even added the correct amount of echo for the auditorium he was speaking in. An American movie, which I saw a few minutes of at the Kimuras, was set in the American South. When I tuned in, a car chase was in progress. The Kimuras had a bilingual set, so I could toggle between the original English and the dubbed J a p a n e s e . Doing this, I discovered that the e n t i r e soundtrack had been remixed for the Japanese version; the music and sound was the same, but it wasn't in sync with the original. The spirit of the movie's

translation also seemed out of sync: the translation had none of the Southern feel of the original. 1 wondered how much of the film would make sense to a Japanese viewer. Japanese produced shows did not seem to be as well done as their American counterparts, although the fact that 1 didn't speak Japanese probably made my judgements harsher. The first Japanese show which 1 saw in lioka, and which I continued to see, was a Japanese version of Solid Gold. It struck me as a little chincy, although Solid Gold itself is more than a little chincy to begin with. The interesting thing about the singers who starred on the show was that they made motions which emulated those of American pop stars, but they w e r e d o n e in a d e l i c a t e Japanese way. A rather puzzling bit of TV production w a s a show in which

the buglike villain attracted thattention of the hero by playing a violin. The hero, an apparently ordinary young man, would go through a Supermanesque t r a n s f o r m a t i o n , a n d would proceed to fight the villain. 1 was tempted to try to analyze what the show said about the Japanese mind, but then again, there are some things which really should not be overanalyzed. Japanese commercials also should not be overanalyzed, but they do seem to provide some clues to the nature of Japanese life. One of the first impressions 1

Do you think it's appropriate tor the


media to scrutinize the private lives of political figures?



DougBixby Junior

Sara Roelfsema Junior

"Yes, because their personal lives reflect their opinions and not all decisions are made objectively. But then, smoking marijuana in 1960 being held against Ginsburg may not reflect his political opinions."

"No, because that's their own personal business and things that go on in their personal life have nothing to do with what goes on in their own political position. Especially with this smoking marijuana back in the 60's. I think that has no bearing on whether he'll be a good political official."

Jonathan Hoffman Sophomore t4

No, but I think in the Ginsburg case, the President s h o u l d h a v e looked m o r e thoroughly into his background before getting embarassed and humiliated. As far as Hart goes, that's his own problem. If you look at America, that's normal. Are they looking for a super hero? Besides, as a friend of mine said, t h ^ media doesn't scrutinize, the pttblic does. ,M

Chris Schorl Senior 44

Yeah, I think even political figures should set an example. And if they wish to have extramarital affairs, they should be more discrete. I think the Ginsburg (issue) is overplayed, though."

Craig Forsman Senior

"I think so. I think the public is entitled to know what's going on n with their leaders. Personally, I don't think I'd want a president like Gary Hart who fools around on his wife..."

Sports Dutchmen Blast Olivet 48-14 By Ben Hanneman anchor Sports Editor The Flying Dutchmen football team hosted the Olivet Comets Saturday in the final regular season game of the season and remained undefeated in the MIAA with a 48-14 blowout. Before the Comet fans could warm up their seats the Dutchmen had jumped out to a 10-0 lead on a Duy Dang field goal and a 12-yard touchdown run by quarterback Mark Hahn. F r o m t h a t point on t h e Dutchmen were never threatened as they conducted a virtual clinic on the finer points of MIAA football allowing Coach Ray Smith massive substitutions late in the game. Offensively t h e Dutchmen compiled a total of 464 yards, 328

of which came via the running attack including three of the six touchdowns. Sophomore tailback Chris Dui7ee and senior running back Keith Stewart teamed up for 166 yards and two touchdowns. Junior Tim Peterson caught three passes for 40 yards. On the other side of the scrimmage line the Dutchmen defense allowed just 18 yards in the first half as they blanked the Comets for most of t h r e e quarters. The Comets could generate less than 200 yards offensively all afternoon as Hope showed why they are the number one defense in the l e a g u e allowing an average of just 94 yards per game. Led by seniors Don Dahlquist and Craig Forsman, both playing

their final game as Dutchmen, the defensive alignment racked up five sacks for minus 29 yards. With just under four minutes gone in the third quarter Tim Lamie flew through the offensive line, blocked the punt and recovered the ball in the end zone to put Hope up 20-0. With the win the Dutchmen remained atop the MIAA with a perfect 6-0 record in the league play and captured their ninth outright title under Smith since 1970. The contest also marked the final appearance for thirteen seniors who have been part of t h r e e MIAA c h a m p i o n s h i p teams, were part of the first undefeated team and were also a part of the first team to make it to t h e NCAA Division I I I playoffs.

DeVette Coaches Last Game Longtime Hope coach Russ DeVette was on the sidelines guiding the defensive fortunes of the Flying Dutchmen football team for the final time last Saturday afternoon when Hope defeated Olivet and wrapped up the MIAA championship. DeVette will retire from the college faculty at the end of the current academic year. DeVette has had an association with Hope College dating back to the 1940,s as a student-athlete and since 1948 as a coach. As a student, he was a standout basketball player. In 1947 he was voted the MIAA's first most valuable player. he joined the Hope staff as an assistant football coach and the hed coach in m e n ' s basketball and track. He served as Hope's head football coach for 15 years, leading the Dutchmen to MIAA titles in 1958 and 1963. Since 1970 he h a s been d e f e n s i v e coordinator. During his career he has also been head coach In baseball and women's track. From 1956 to 1961 DeVette was head coach of three major sports

(football, basketball and baseball) in the same season. As a head coach, he led Hope to 14 MIAA championships — nine in basketball, two each in baseball and football, and one in women's track, he has been an assistant coach on 17 other league championship teams. "Russ has meant so much to so many people," said head football coach Ray Smith. "To narrow it down to the football program, he has just been a m a j o r Influence in my own life as a person, a s a Christian and as a football coach." 4< So o f t e n t h e c h a i n of command in football is that the assistants learn from the head coach, but I can unequivocally say that I have learned so much from Russ and I have given back so little to him," continued Smith. "He helped m e greatly when I came to Hope. I was young and sort of wet behind the ears. I feel that a s I gained maturity a lot of that c a m e because of the influence of Russ as a leader. He will be greatly missed."

By Ben J. Hanneman anchor Sports Editor The mood was pensive as the Hope cross-country team headed for Albion and what would be for many of us the final meet of the season. Some people slept, but more played Euchre — the official game of the 1987 season — trying to steer clear of dwelling too intensively on the impending race. That bus ride to Albion was the final time I would be a member of any Dutchmen team, and I feel p r o u d to h a v e b a d t h e opportunity to be i part of the "total experience of running" that coach Vanderbiit h a s talked of all season. It's a feeling like no other to be a p a r t of a team that really cares about everyone regardless of their race results. Win or lose they're all behind you. Little did 1 realize back in August when we began practice as a team that this total experience would include having to shave my ankle and even getting passed by in a race by a 4'!!" Calvin runner. That's right ladies. I can now

say with confidence I don't envy you regarding the chore. It's not easy, especially when you cut yourself, right? As far as the Calvin runner passing me, well, just imagine how you would feel if someone half your size and weight went wheeling past you a s if you were standing still? It's not a pleasant sight. Calvin was tough this year. Then again, when a r e they ever n o t t o u g h in a n y s p o r t ? Volleyball, maybe? Anyway, we are still not giving up Hope — pardon the pun. The team still has the regional meet Friday to put something together against Calvin. Win or lose at the regionals, I think we owe it to this team to show our support at the national competition on Nov. 21 a t the Holland Country Club. To all runners on the 1987 Hope cross-country team, and to coach Vanderbiit, and to all those that supported me in my only season in any Dutchmen uniform, 1 say thank-you for making it all worthwhile. Not bad for a pseudo-runner, eh?

Greg Foster Gets Set For 1988 (Olympics in Seoul W.C. H e i n z , t h e g r e a t sportswriter, wrote in "A Tale of Two Pitchers" that there was no reason to tell the particular baseball he was about to narrate, except that it happened. Well, there is no reason in particular to tell this story at this time, a tale of three hurdlers, and politics, and sport. Except that it happened. And Greg Foster is a remarkable young athlete, with a singular tale of his own.


Howard Cosell Emmy and I saw him some days ago, for the first time in a long time, at the finish line of the New York City Marathon. The 29 year-old F o s t e r , for those unfamiliar with him, runs the 110 meter hurdles and the 200-meter dash. He won the silver medal in Los Angeles for the hurdles. He says he lost the gold to Roger Kingdon — whom he has beaten 20 times since then — because he thought there was a false start to the race, and he slowed down momentarily. He never got a chance to make up the lost time, and never quite regained the level of concentration he says is key to winning a hurdling event. There's just 15 meters to the first hurdle, 10 to each succeeding hurdle, and 15 meters to the finish line. If you don't start off fast, you don't win. That slow start has haunted him for almost four years. His aim in life once was winning an Olympic gold medal. Now, things are a little more complicated than that, goals and motivations less clear, after the events of August 1985. That was when Greg Foster lost his mother, his 5 year-old namesake nephew, his two aunts and his 14 year-old cousin in a hit-and-run car accident. Not everyone died at once. Foster's mother lingered several weeks. The tragedy shattered him and his life, and he no longer cared to compete for anything, least of all a gold medal. Then his father and sister spoke to him. They encouraged him to return to competition. As is often the case, they told him it would please his mother, it would make her happy and proud. Foster listened. And he began to run again and to beat Kingdon at every turn. He has never bested Renaldo N e h e m i a h ' s world-

But his best time is 13 Foster's closest friend, his rival, flat — Kingdon won the gold his nemesis, his mentor for 10 medal with a time of 13.21. years.

That it banged him up pretty But then, there is Korea. good, and that he's out of shape That's what Foster wanted to for running. He has got to qualify talk about two weeks ago for the team.

After all, Renaldo didn't Central Park and cross the finish compete in 1980 because of the line. About the Olympics. About boycott, and couldn't compete in South Korea. About how 1988 will 1984 because he played for the 49ers. If he can do it this time, he will. What of Moses, then? I asked. Like Nehemiah, Edwin Moses is also a close friend of Foster's and a rival. Edwin will go to South Korea, too, Foster says. For the same reasons. It's his last shot. He'll take it wherever he can get it. Even in a war zone. People overheard us talking. "I don't understand what you're so worried about," one of them said to Greg. "They'll guarantee your security." Like they guaranteed the security of the Israeli athletes at Munich?" E m m y asked. No one had a reply. Later, we said goodbye and wished Greg luck whatever he be his last chance to go to the decides to do. He has a very Games and to win the gold. And difficult choice before him. In how he is deeply disturbed about truth, it is a choice neither he, the site of the games. He calls nor Renaldo Nehemiah, nor South Korea a war zone.

But perhaps afraid, and he has legitimate there is someone, somewhere, reason to be.

Dang Ties Cooper's Field Goai Record Freshman field goal kicker Duy Dang has tied the Hope record for most field goals in a season. Dang kicked two field g o a l s S a t u r d a y in t h e Dutchmen's win over Olivet, 4814. Dang made good on his first two attempts, one a 25-yard kick and the second a 21-yarder. A third attempt by Dang from 44 yards out, would have set a new Hope record and tied the MIAA season record. On the attempt. Dang slipped and kicked a line drive that scooted about 30 yards through the air.

Dang needs three more field goals in the next three seasons to set the Hope all-time career record. Doug Cooper and Greg Bekius hold the record with 12 each. One of t h e m o r e highly publicized members of the Hope squad. Dang has been featured in a n u m b e r of n e w s p a p e r s including the Detroit F r e e Press, the Grand Rapids Press, the Holland Sentinel, the Christian Science Monitor, and USA Today. He was also featured in an article in last week's Sport's Ilustrated.

RAPE cont. from page 2 then forced him to leave the dormitory. A warrant has been issued for the intruder's arrest in Grand Rapids. The rape on campus marks the sixth assault incident in the Holland community since early September, and the third assault involving Hope students. Dean Beal said, "Caution has to be exercised. What appears to

be safe, may not be. A young lady should certainly know the identity of her escort, or ask for identification indicating that he is one of the Hope fraternity or other student volunteer escorts." Escort s e r v i c e s are still available either by Public Safety or student volunteers. Both carry identification and can be

reached by calling extention 7770.

LAMBERT cont. from page 10 had concerning the difference between Japanese and American commercials was that while American commercials offer happiness, Japanese commercials offer release. A commercial which I saw in lioka featured a man hang-gliding over water in what appeared to be a dream sequence. When he reached shore, he touched down just in time to be embraced by a woman with European features. In addition to the element of release from everyday routine, this c o m m e r c i a l showed the Japanese ad men have to use Europeans and Americans to indicate a high quality product. It is rather startling to note how few Japanese people star in Japanese commercials, and in other advertisements. Most of the reason for the dearth of Japanese people in their own ads is that t|iey believe they a r e not as beautiful as their European and American counterparts. Another commercial showed the occupants of a subway car being addressed by a bag of some sort of snacks which was sitting on the luggage rack. The people in the subway looked up at the J?ag with the beleaguered look of wonder that would probably be accorded a talking cellophone bag on a crowded subway. My f a v o r i t e c o m m e r c i a l opened with a shot of a woman in a blue bikini who stood in a crosswalk holding a jar of sauce aloft. A man in a gray business suit walked up a n d unceremoniously fell over when he reached the woman. The commercial ended with a shot of the sauces. Unfortunately, I couldn't find out what the

the woman was, and thus couldn't quite fathom why the man had fallen over. Curiously, I didn't notice that Japanese commercials were all fifteen seconds long until the end of my stay in Tokyo. When all the commercials are fifteen seconds, the length seems normal because they are produced to make full use of the time. In fifteen seconds, one doesn't have time f o r 4 t s l i c e of l i f e " t y p e commercials, and so there are almost none of these. Instead, J a p a n e s e commercials rely heavily on, memorable images and sounds for their impact. This can get annoying when the s a m e commercial is repeated several times, as one was when I was watching the Japanese version of MTV at about one in the morning. During t h r e e c o m m e r c i a l breaks, which spanned fifteen minutes of an interview the VJ was having with some Japanese musicians, one commercial was played ten times — sometimes back to back. The commercial, a station promo for a show called " E a t Nine" engraved itself in my memory to such an extent that the sound of the voices at the beginning singing 44 eat nine" is one of the strongest aural memories I brought back with me from Japan;not even the mournful note of the noodle man's horn: da da da da dum — a sound which was heard at about eleven or twelve at night outside the Y as the noodle man trundled his cart down the street — was remembered more strongly than the voices in the television c o m m e r c i a l . That must show that the commercial got ifspoint across." * '

Opinion Still Life Things I Sometimes Think About Jim Monnett

Some things I think I think. Someday I would like to make the roof of Phelps cafeteria, which we affectionately call "Pebble Beach," into something useful. There is enough room for a volleyball court, but maybe a putting green would be safer. Actually, though, I think the best thing to build would be a small go-cart race track. We could even put a j u m p in over to the hills of the M a a s Center. It'd make a great study break. The four least credible phrases in the English language are: "The check is in the m a i l , " "Of course I'll respect you in the morning," "I understand women (or men depending on your preference)," and "Hello, I'm from the government and I'm here to help you." I sometimes walk so slow that the chemistry students try to embalm me. It really ruins my shirts. R a m b o has been much criticized by the educated, but I believe they have missed the remarkable similarities between him and our dear English language. Both produce sweat and blood. Both scare young children. Finally and most


importantly, both R a m b o and the English language a r e imprecise in their methods, but they get the job done. (Anyone who is saying to himself that English is precise should try to explain to a foreign English student the 'I before E except after C rule.) Sometimes I get the feeling life is a parade, and I am a manhole cover. NFL football is really boring this year. There's more action in a bowl of Rice Krispies with milk. I mourn the passing of MASH. Cliff Huxtable is no Hawkeye Pierce. I know a kid who thinks that everyone was put on this earth for his pleasure. I don't think that is my job in life. If it is, then start sending m e my unemployment checks. I bet the astrologers will soon find a connection between Ursa Major, the Chicago Bears, and the present bear m a r k e t on the stock exchange. What if the Tribulation starts tomorrow? Won't a lot of people be surprised? I h e a r a lot of p e o p l e complaining about Phelps' food. P a r t of the problem is that we eat

it every single day. No m a t t e r how much variety you have, it'll all grow old sooner or later. If you w a n t a r e a l c u l i n a r y nightmare, there are colleges where you can feast on slop so bad b a r i u m s w a l l o w s a r e considered a treat. I don't c a r e if this is a Burger King town. Just as all things must come to pass, so must Ronald Reagan. Say goodnight, Bonzo. The Michal Stanley Band said in " J u s t How Good (A Bad Woman F e e l s ) " , "I ain't no Prince Charming, ain't no last chance... " That about sums up my feelings about girls-boys who have u n r e a s o n a b l y high standards and free Saturday nights. I hear a lot of cruel talk about homosexuals. These people are using the Bible as a justification to discriminate against gays. Well, if the Bible is taken as a whole it says we have to hate their sin but love them as fellow sinners. What's left of the Bible if we read it without love? With so many research papers being written, I hear a lot of gripes from all grades about not being able to find relevant information at the library. I assume that the new library will solve these complaints. I hope I'm not disappointed. Doesn't Cultural Anthropology sound scary? H o p e ' s p r o f e s s o r s a r e so friendly it floors me. I visited Dayton University, and was there two hours before seeing someone smile, and he was coming out of the bathroom. Arguably the worst joke of all time: "Why do people buy shampoo when they can have the real thing?" I think both of my oars are in the water, but the water is tenday old P e r r i e r that was sitting on the window ledge of my rubber room.

Hope College

The anchor

Editorial Congress Reps: Who Do They Represent? At the anchor's recent budget appropriation meeting, one m e m b e r of the c o m m i t t e e voiced their opinion that syndicated news material didn't belong in a college newspaper. They also "didn't like" the changes the newspaper has underwent this p a s t semester. This isn't something we haven't already heard, a n u m b e r of students and faculty h a v e stated they do not like the new anchor, but prefer the old one. Even an anchor staff m e m b e r resigned early in September citing disagreements with the new editorial policies. We realize we cannot please everyone. But the statements at the appropriations meeting raised some serious questions regarding the representation of Hope's student body. The Student Congress m e m b e r who m a d e the comments w a s not in favor of additional funding for the anchor to cover e x t r a expenses such a s syndicated m a t e r i a l and the annual media conference in New York City. However, one wonders exactly who m a d e the comments. Was the m e m b e r speaking for themself personally or for the consitutents they represent? We hope those comments represent how students feel. We doubt they do. According to a n u m b e r of Student Congress representatives, the Congress has no " r e a l " power. Ally they can do Is m a k e recommendations. Yet, personal recommendations do little good at all. This is supposed to be a democracy, not oligarchy. If a number of students feel the syndicated m a t e r i a l and features a r e a waste of t i m e and money they should let the anchor know. One way to do this is to c o m m u n i c a t e with their Congress representatives. One of our goals at T h e anchor is to serve the students of this campus. It doesn't m a t t e r if t h e y ' r e athletes. Blacks, gays or commuters. However, we want to serve all of them, not just a few. This week's winner: Then m e n ' s football team and women's cross-country and volleyball t e a m s for winning MIAA championships in their respective sports. A special salute to Coach Russ DeVette for his dedication to athletics at Hope since 1948. He will retire in May. This week's loser: Hope students. Student Congress is proposing to meet on a bi-weekly basis, insted of weekly a s they do now. A one hour a week sacrifice isn't much if the m e m b e r s w e r e dedicated in representing the students who voted for them. We urge them to stick with weekly meetings.

The Bright Birthday Blues As I sit at my desk in my bedroom, staring at the bank c a l e n d a r , I realize a n o t h e r birthday is upon me. The fact is on Friday (the 13th) I will be 21 years old.

From The Editor's Desk Brian Breen While birthdays a r e a glorious event for many, they've become somewhat personal and solemn for me. The days have passed when a birthday meant the time to receive the most significant toy of the year. Now if I need something bad enough, I wait unitl I've saved the money and then I buy it. And usually at this time I look back to see what the past 12 months have meant to me. However, this year is different. It's a time to gaze into the crystal

ball and hypothesize on the year ahead. A y e a r which the following ones — good or bad — may be built upon. So with that in mind, this what l e a n or could see: Next year I should be a wellseasoned collegian, laughing at the f r e s h m a n and wondering if they'll ever m a k e it. Somehow I know they will... because I did. Next year I will be a fourthyear junior, hating my new major (I'm switching now) and contemplating if I should spend a s e m e s t e r in New York, or P h i l a d e l p h i a , or C h i c a g o . Wrigley Field is so beautiful on Opening Day. Next year I may lose someone dear to me, like a good friend or relative. Then life will seem hard and unfair... like it is sometimes. Next year I will be 22, a third of the way towards retirement, and I haven't even started a career yet. I doubt is Social Security will be around in the year 2032. I wonder if even I will be around in 2032. Next year I will probably be looking (again) for Miss Right. She has eluded m e ever since I got here... and done a bleeping good job, too. Next year I could be living at Stonehenge again, counting the number of blown fuses and high electric bills with five r e f r i g e r a t o r s , one computer.

f o u r s t e r e o r e c e i v e r s , two cassette decks, three compact disc players, three eualizers, two waterbeds, a televison; numerous electric shavers and blow dryers, four clock-radios, several lamps, and only one electrical circuit in the whole damn house. Next year I may be editor of The anchor again, pecking away at my computer that I'm still paying for (and will be for a while). The money doesn't go very far when you only m a k e $64 a month as the top dog and your computer payment is $41. Oh well, it's experience, right? Next year I will be hoping Gary Myrick and the Figures will m a k e a national tour. If I could see them just once before I start to dislike rock 'n roll I would be satisfied. Next year I m a y be still working at Columbia One Stop, making big bucks ($3.95) in my third year of utter party store devotion. Actually I'll probably be there cursing at little kids, while making change for video games, and counting dirty soda cans and beer bottles. Next year I will be wishing I could play ice hockey. But, not being able to skate 1 know it will always be a dream unfulfilled... Next year I will be another year older.

Letters To The Editor

Dry Dock Beverage

Students Don't Take Stand On Issues

M a s t e r Card & Visa accepted

T students were critically languid. What I mean by that is that students here will not take a stand on issues that are just as e a s i l y v a s s e l a t e d on. I understand that colllege is supposed to be a formative period in our lives and we should not jump at things too abruptly, but we must challenge the world around us in order to fully tap its resources. Everyone's had that class where all you must do is r e g u r g i t a t e the p r o f e s s o r s

Hope College students are critically languid. This became all too apparent to me when I read through the last issue of the anchor. It was not so much what was there in print, as much as what was not. I may be wrong, but it seems to me that what we have here is an easily accessible, inexpensive (free) medium for expressing our thoughts on current issues. A letter to the editor is easy and ' takes very little time. E a r l i e r I said tht Hope

lectures to receive that GPA boosting "A". I would like to challenge you to think for yourself, be critical of what you are being taught and take a stand for what it means to you. Challenge yourself, read an opposing view, read a newspaper, buy a book instead of the new Poison album. Practice thinking and acting instead of just reacting.
