The funds used in all the exterior work and in the new lobby were donated specifically for changes in the Theatre. "Several friends of the College have been involed in helping us with this project," said Bill Anderson, vice-president for Business and Finance.

Phil Tanis said, 4 , The The atre is now much more usable for live events which is something we a r e putting more e m p h a s i s on." The T h e a t r e is planning to host the Grand Rapids Symphony, the Great P e r f o r m a n c e Series, the All-College Sing a n d o t h e r events.

The Knickerbocker is owned by Hope College. The College owns the lot the T h e a t r e sits on but the rest is owned by Lumir Corporation.

"Students will see a re-emphasis on high-quality foreign and a r t films. We're going to get back into the foreign m a r k e t because there's a lot of good stuff out there." The K n i c k e r b o c k e r d o e s n ' t show R-rated films because the Theatre wants to feature films that a r e acceptable for the entire family.

"At this time in h i s t o r y , E a s t e r n E u r o p e is changing from a communist society to a m a r k e t democracy, so people get a chance to see what that means in t e r m s of real people," said Professor Heisler of the Economics Department. This program is taught from a wide p e r s p e c t i v e . T h e r e f o r e , "people don't have to be students of economics to a p p r e c i a t e this," said Heisler The students will be taken to the Polish Alps, Warsaw and Polish factories, and will be meeting Polish students. They a r e going to be living in the d o r m s of the Academy. This prog r a m is h i g h l y b e n e f i c i a l because "This time won't happen a g a i n , " said Professor Heisler.

Engler, who according to polls still trailed by as m u c h as 14 points in the final two weeks of the c a m p a i g n , used his anti-tax s U n c e and the nickel (to symbolize the a m o u n t of relief M i c h i g a n d e r s would r e c e i v e under B l a n c h a r d ' s r e v a m p i n g of property tax law) to close the gap.

Administration postpones new dorm by Kris Olenik •feature editor You m a y have h e a r d that Hope .was going to build a new dorm and you may be wondering what *happened since it was supposed # to be started by now. It seems t h a t Hope has a d j u s t e d its •priorities. The administration put the new dorm on the back 'burner for a while because of the .cost and because it wanted to concentrate on other important 'issues 4

Richard Frost said, "We a r e 4 interested in building a new dormitory. but when is still the ques•tion. 1 don t know what the timetable is at this point." .

William Anderson, vice president for business a n d finance, 'said that they "backed away .from the project somewhat because of the cost." In order to •break even on the project they would have to double the room 'charge for that building or inc r e a s e room costs across campus, Anderson said. This is not •something they want to do. Anderson said they need to • raise some money for the dorm, probably half, in order to put it • up. To build a new dorm it costs . $22,000 per student living in it, he said And borrowing money isn't «a feasible option because interest rates a r e so high • At this point, Anderson said, students would see an increase in 'fees if Hope were to build a new ,dorm. They don't want to lay the cost on the students, they'd ^rather see the dorm pay for itself.

Vesper tickets available Saturday Anderson also m a d e it clear that they didn't want to subsidize the project with tuition money because that should go toward maintaining and improving the quality of education at Hope. When they raise some money (hopefully through a contribution), they a r e c o n s i d e r i n g building the dorm in phases which would also help it pay for itself In lieu of new dorm at this point, the college bought 10-12 new cottages this last y e a r to create more on-campus living s p a c e for a p p r o x i m a t e l y 80 students. Most of the cottages a r e a l r e a d y i n h a b i t e d by students and a few a r e still being remodeled. Anderson said, " T h e property around the college is valuable to us and buying houses kind of kills two birds with one stone. We get more property and please the students " Many students prefer cottage living to dorms and apartments For now building a new dorm would be too costly and the adm i n i s t r a t i o n h a s put o t h e r priorities ahead of it. One of these is financial aid. Anderson said, "Financial aid is one of our highest priorities we have right now. Our feeling is that students would appreciate that more than a new d o r m . " Th^ college actually increased the studem. c ' fina -ialaid budget this year. Oiher priorities include keeping existing facilities up to standard and improving s o m e of them. Anderson said the college

spent $100,000 for new furniture and improvements in c o t t a g e s something they have to do every year. Also thay have spent money for things like computers and other equipment as well as the new athlettcfields. But they haven't forgotten about the new dorm. The architectural f i r m from Boston that is taking care of the dorm plans visited the c a m p u s last year. They met with the administration and students to talk about possible designs. It is still in the works because Hope hasn't finalized its statement for the firm because there a r e details that need to be worked out. Frost said that they a r e paying special attention to what types of things they want in the dorm as f a r as lounge space, recreation space, study rooms, living space (suites, apartment-like,etc.) and bathrooms. In addition to these details there a r e other dimensions of the project that need to be considered as well, according to Frost. Things to be considered a r e the size of the dorm, location, need for the bulling and expected admissions at Hope in the future. But Frost said he hopes to be able to m a k e a more definite decision about the project a s he becomes more familiar with his position and Hope's needs. The administration is being somewhat cautious because they want the project to be a success and fulfill the needs of the students. Anderson said, "If we do it, we want to do it right."

He recommended that any students in d o r m s finding this a problem should report it to the RA or HD The w o m e n of S c h n e r Cottage have found their own solution to this p r o b l e m . The whole house went together to purchase a w a s h e r and d r y e r " I t ' s easier just to do it in your own house and not h a v e to t a k e it to another dorm or a p a r t m e n t . ' ' said Chervl Becker ('92). " I t ' s a lot less expensive this way. If we use it for two y e a r s , we worked it out and in the long run it costs less " They h a v e worked it out so each person h a s one day each week to do their laundry According to Becker, this is working well and e v e r y o n e is helping keep the m a c h i n e s clean and working well. " A f t e r two years we'll t r y a n d find out who's living here a n d t r y and sell it to them." said B e c k e r . The rest of the students on c a m p u s will h a v e to wait for changes.

Amnesty International chapter 'not political,' more active this year by Amy Giles staff writer "A lot of people think of us a s a political o r g a n i z a t i o n , ^ said Amnesty International Chairperson Elizabeth Bos ('93). She said the focus of the group is not to promote political views but to work for the release of prisoners of conscience, a r e people throughout the world who a r e imprisoned mainly because of their outspokeness against their government. While in prison most do not h a v e access to lawyers and c a n ' t even see their families. Amnesty m e m b e r s write letters and send petitions and t e l e g r a m s to government officials in those countries asking for the release of such prisoners « Bos. said the Hope chapter, which she joined second semester last y e a r , has about 25 to 30 steady m e m b e r s . The group, according to Bos, would like to continue working on the goals they established when they began a y e a r a n d a half ago. ,4 We would like to focus on countries like P e r u , like we did last y e a r and become m o r e educated about them, write letters and do m o r e fund r a i s i n g , " she said. As part of their goal to learn more about the countries a n d the struggle for h u m a n rights, Bos and fellow Amnesty International m e m b e r s took a trip to Chicago this past wekend for Student Activism Day.

"It brings together thousands of high school a n d c o ^ o g e students from the m i d w e s t , " she said. Workshops and speakers were presented throughout the day by host Loyola University. A rally was also held in downtown Chicago as part of the day. Workshop topics ranged from fundraising to the death penalty said Bos

'Just because they may not agree with Amnesty International on an issue like the death penalty, doesn't mean they shouldn't get involved.' - E l i z a b e t h Bos Hope's Amnesty chapter is receiving more and more recognition said Bos, last spr ing's Critical Issues Symposium focused on h u m a n rights and brought a lot of attention to the group. "We had a display in the library and also hosted a speaker from Amnesty's midwest office who was originally from Germ a n y , " she said "We'd like to bring in a speaker on the death penalty this y e a r , " Bos said. That topic is where she sees some apprehension by students. " J u s t because they may not a g r e e with Amnesty International on a n issue like the death penalty doesn't m e a n they shouldn't get involved." In fact, many Amnesty m e m b e r s do not all s h a r e the s a m e opinion when it comes to issues such as the death penalty.

Arparna Thomas ('93) and Arwa Haider ('91) distribute tickets and food at the entrance to the International Food Fair last Saturday. The fair provided students w i t h an o p p o r t u n i t y t o sample the c u i s i n e of different c u l t u r e s .

She said many students also don't realize how i m p o r t a n t writing letters is. "A lot of people think it's only one letter, what good will it do, so they don't even bother with it." She added that when the letters add up it does really make a difference. " M a y b e a n individual c a n ' t change things but a group c a n . "

Amnesty International meets every other Wednesday at 9 p.m. For the location or more information contact Bos or advisor Chuck Green

Artist pulls acrylic murals from modern college library SEATTLE, Wash (CPS) - Centralia College lost a round in a battle to house brightly colored, acrylic m u r a l s that artist Alden Mason said would not look good in C e n t r a l i a ' s m o d e r n i s t i c library. In siding with Mason, King County Superior Court J u d g e T e r r e n c e Carroll ruled Sept. 27 that the state, which owns the m u r a l s , should find a m o r e "app r o p r i a t e " p l a c e to display them. Mason's murals, designed specifically for the s t a t e Senate gallery in 1981, were r e j e c t e d in 1987 by s e n a t o r s who complained the brightly r e n d e r e d P u g e t Sound scenes were unsuitable for the building. Since then, Centralia P r e s i d e n t Henry Kirk h a d c a m p a i g n e d to hang the m u r a l s in his school's library. Mason objected to the site a s too s m a l l and too modern.

Opinion SLIP OF THE MIND November Mondays

JIM MONNETT T h e r e is something special about sunshine on a Monday morning. Monday's a r e usually a time of grunt responses and a steady effort to avoid thinking of all the collegiate g a r b a g e one m u s t go through before the s a c r e d weekend r e t u r n s . But November Mondays m a y be the worst (though F e b r u a r y Mondays a r e right u p there). In November people still have a vivid m e m o r y of w a r m w e a t h e r and playing outside. On TV most football g a m e s a r e taking place outside ~ especially the college games. The outdoors a r e still being emphasized in November. It's

technically still Fall. There a r e some stubborn leaves still clinging to life on trees. Like the leaves, students a r e clinging to their jean jackets a s though it really isn't 35 degrees out. J e a n jackets will bring back w a r m s u m m e r nights. Righto. But for the college student November m e a n s papers. The most p a p e r s of the school year a r e due in the three days before Thanksgiving and s o m e a r e even due the next week a f t e r w a r d . As if driving six hours home wasn't enough in a four day period. We might a s well toss in a 12-page p a p e r on s o m e b e h a v i o r a l disorder for psychology.

Student offers a new alternative to Pull and Nykerk sexism issue Dear Editor: First, I wish to applaud F r e d Vance for g r a s p i n g the full m e a n i n g of the Nykerk tradition. I also wish to applaud the antisexism d e m o n s t r a t o r s a s it is refreshing to see students acting on their words. But I also find it necessary to issue t h e m a complaint (you did well to anticipate it). How DARE you set up a demonstration to convey your opinions and then sign the flyer you sent out 4 4 Anonynmous"! If you m a k e your opinions public, you had better be p r e p a r e d to attach your n a m e to t h e m ..If not, keep them to yourself! If the administration decides that the Pull and Nykerk should be intergrated, to be consistent, they will be forced to also int e r g r a t e all the residence halls,

and Nykerk s h a r e the s a m e purpose (class unity, even-odd year competition, and the building of friendships) but differ in their composition, m a l e and female restrooms s h a r e the s a m e purpose but differ in composition. Do f e m a l e r e s t r o o m s h a v e urinals? Do m a l e r e s t r o o m s have vending machines for femine products? If looked at in this light, restrooms a r e sexist, but it is not a 4 4 bad" f o r m of sexism. Similarly, the Pull and Nykerk a r e not bad f o r m s of sexism.

The upshot of all this is that people a r e irritable (which is the most polite way to describe their condition). Heads a r e getting bit off for the stupidest things. In my house during the Lions g a m e , someone got decapitated for flicking channels on the remote in the middle of plays. Another sure sign of the growing irritability occurs between r o o m m a t e s . In m a n y r o o m s there is a battle being fought over the t e m p e r a t u r e of the room. For some reason hot people a r e matched with cold people. Throughout November one roomie will slam a window closed and go into the bathroom. The other roomie will return and pull the window up, turn on two fans and open the door to establish proper air flow. She will then step next door to pick up a paper. The first roomie r e t u r n s f r o m the bathroom and s l a m s everything either off or closed. Neither will of course mention their problems to the other. Afterall, it is November and if he doesn't know what I like by now... And so it goes.

But irritability doesn't r e m a i n in the dorms and a p a r t m e n t s . It likes to go for a walk to classes and to Phelps.

GREEK LIFE: by Kris Olenik, P a m Lundberg and Jon O'Brien

In o r d e r to get a b e t t e r perspective on Greek life on Hope's campus, questions were put to m e m b e r s of each of the six sororities and five fraternities. Answers reflect a representative sample of the responses received in the interviews.

QUESTION: How do the benefits of pledging outweigh the physical and academic strains on the pledge? (Editors' Note: Some groups stated that this question was poorly worded because of the assumptions it makes.)

COSMOPOLITANS: Pledging is necessary to learn all t h e r e is to know about brotherhood, service, and trust. You learn to c a r e about the people around you. You can't put yourself first in every situation.

EMERSONIANS: The challenge of pledging teaches you a lot about yourself a n d what you can do to under pressure You can learn how to budget your time and organize your life. Another aspect is that pledging teaches you how to work with other people to reach a common goal.

QUESTION: What is the purp o s e of y o u r o r g a n i z t i o n (fraternity-sorority)?

SIGMA SIGMA: F r i e n d s h i p , striving for individuality, doing charity work, getting more involved in Hope

Fostering friendships and Peace

KAPPA DELTA CHI: Pledging honor, giving friendship CENTURIANS: Brotherhood, service, c h a r a c t e r . ARCADIANS: wisdom.

DORIANS: We try and work h a r d to k e e p s t r a i n s to a minimum. It p r e p a r e s you for the realities of the sorority (future time c o m m i t m e n t s if you're on a c o m m i t t e e or have a position). It teaches them to m a n a g e time and s t r e s s ; to prioritize, grow a s leaders and work with the group. All these t h i n g s a r e e s s e n t i a l in the organization and the world.

ARCADIANS: Pledges benefit because they realize things that a r e of value don't always come easily. It c r e a t e s a sense of pride and honor in the organization and a sense of unity. It helps pledges understand what the organization is about because they a r e required to do a service project and fund raising. It promotes leadership. And it m a k e s people be ind i v i d u a l s , u s i n g t h e i r own talents, while working together towards a goal.

KAPPA DELTA CHI: Pledging is intended a s an educational p e r i o d to l e a r n a b o u t t h e soroity's history, the m e m b e r s , and your pledge sisters. Organizational skills a r e important and you c a n learn to budget your time. We require pledges to keep up academic s t a n d a r d s . They m u s t attend c l a s s e s . Friendships a r e built.

ALPHA GAMMA PHI: It's fun and you learn a lot about yourself and other people. You learn how to function in a group and m a n a g e your time. And you're forced to go to classes

QUESTION: What sets your organization a p a r t from others? ARCADIANS: We're a pretty close-knit group and our service projects set us a p a r t because we do more of them

F R A T E R N A L : Some of the benefits of pleging a r e a never before experienced closeness to a group of people, a great improvement in strength of c h a r a c t e r and the ability to overcome adversity to achieve a goal. The process is challenging but it is not at the expense of individual integity.

DORIANS. We're so new (two years old) and a lot of our archives were lost so w e ' r e forming our own traditions instead of being formed by old traditions

SIGMA SIGMA: Our individuali ty and t r a d t i o n a l Christmas (with the F r a t e r s ) and Hallo ween parties for underprivileged children CENTURIANS: We a r e a lot more individualistic You are your own person You don i change when you join, you re main yourself W e ' r e more diverse then a lot of f r a t s m

Budget strikesstudent taxes and reforms student loans by J a r e t Sieberg WASHINGTON, D C. (CPS) Congress approved a budget Oct. 27 t h a t will e x e m p t b o t h undergraduate and g r a d u a t e tuition benefits from federal income taxes, reform the federal student loan program and increase the cost of a six-pack of beer. The new budget, which seeks to trim the federal deficit by $500 billion during the next five years, is a mixture of tax increases and spending cuts. Most significantly for students and colleges, the budget said both u n d e r g r a d u a t e and g r a d u a t e s t u d e n t s would no longer have to pay taxes on tuition benefits paid for them by employers, or to them in return for campus work they do. It also will try to r e f o r m college loan p r o g r a m s by not giving students loan money until 30 days after classes begin, and by dropping schools with default rates o v e r 35 p e r c e n t f r o m t h e guaranteed loan p r o g r a m . Some observers also worry the budget will m a k e it h a r d e r for colleges to solicit money from alumni by limiting the amounts wealthy taxpayers can claim as tax deductions. In all, the budget cuts $40.1 billion from this y e a r ' s budget and $492 billion over the next five years. The House passed it 228-200. The Senate then followed suit, voting 54-45 for the bipartisan compromise. President Bush has said that while he objects to p a r t s of it, he will sign the budget. 44 I don't think anyone believes it is a perfect budget," said Jim N e l s o n , s e c r e t a r y of t h e American University Staff Council and a founding m e m b e r of the Washington-based Integrated Response Against Taxing Education (IRATE). "This bill is the best we could expect out of this Congress and out of this White House." Students with employers who pay for their classes will have some extra pocket change under the new budget. The bill continues the tax exemption for undergraduate students and r e s t o r e s t h e e x e m p t i o n for graduate students.

The bill makes the exemptions r e t r o a c t i v e to Sept. 30 for u n d e r g r a d u a t e s , and for graduate students, the changes take effect J a n u a r y 1. For the last three years, the government has treated graduate remission benefits as taxable income. For some graduate students, the cost of additional taxes has prevented them from taking advantage of the program. "This is very satisfying a f t e r three years of efforts," Nelson said. "We need people to call this Congress and the next Congress with thanks for our inclusion and to push to m a k e this extended law p e r m a n e n t . " Terri Ferinde, president of the

American Association of University Students, agreed. "That was the right move for Congress to take. It was stealing money from students who were working their way through college. It had made it nearly impossible to m a k e it on your own through college.'' The budget also hopes to cut $1.7 billion from federal student loan programs during the next five years, mostly by trying to prevent more students from defaulting on loans. Among other measures, the new law will stop students at schools with default rates more than 35 percent from getting loans, require students without h i g h s c h o o l d i p l o m a s or G r a d u a t e Equivalency Diplomas

president with the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, said the section of the federal budget that reduces per sonal tax exemptions for people with incomes more than $100,000 could reduce overall donations and lower the n u m b e r of lump sum gifts. "Historically, donations have been 100 percent deductible," Wentworth said. "What we a r e dealing with in this is putting a limit across the board."

to pass a test to receive federal assistance, and delay funding first-time loans until 30 days into the semester. The delay would keep students from using loan money to pay non-college bills.

"I think the real decisions will be m a d e with the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act," Ferinde said. " I ' m not convinced that this is a m a j o r overhaul."

Panel to speak on war potential by Scott Kaukonen news editor With the continued build-up of U.S. troops and increasing pressure on President George Bush to take some action, InterVarsity Fellowship is sponsoring a panel discussion entitled "The Possibilities of War in the Middle East." It will be held Wednesday, November 14, from 8:30 to 10:00 p.m. in the Maas Conference room. The event will bring together a spectrum of opinions including Harvey Stall, a former missionary to the Middle East and three Hope faculty members. Stall hopes to shed some light on the Arab perspective on the situation. Hope faculty members include Dr. Donald Cronkite of the biology department, who c o m e s from a Quaker-pacificist background; Dr. Jack Holmes of the political science department, one of the campus's most ardent Republicans; and Dr. Robert Selig of the history department, who Inter-Varsity president Scott Runyon ('93) cast in the role of moderate.

Sports Hope Harriers by Stephen Kaukonen ad m a n a g e r The last time Mark Northuis went to Nationals with a m e n ' s team from Hope, Ronald Reagan was beginning his first term as President of the United States, the American Hostages had just returned from Iran and most of his current team were still running around the playground. Northuis and his t e a m m a t e s were making their fourth consecutive trip to Nationals, finishing n t h on the heels of a sixth place finish the year previous. Nine years later. Northuis, who is now in his third year of coaching Hope's cross country teams, is taking his first team as coach to Nationals. The Hope m e n ' s cross country team continued to show improvejHcni at the regional meet at Heidelberg College in Ohio, and

Hope faced nationally ranked teams from Calvin. Mt. Union, Otterbein. Alma and W a b a s h . ' With only the top two teams receiving bids to nationals. Hope needed and received a team effort to qualify. John Lumkes of Calvin won the race in a time of 26:48. slowed by a course wet and muddy from rain. Calvin dominated the top slots as Lumkes' t e a m m a t e s, Dave Sydow and Thad Karnehm, finished second and third. Calvin won a comfortable victory with a total score of 31. Paced by Bruce Fletter ('91. 5th), Bill Roberts ('91. 10th) and Doug Burchett ('92 . 20th). the

Although the Hope team ran well, Northuis believes the team can do even better. 4 'Some guys had their best race of the year, but a few were taken out of their race style, 1 ' Northuis said. "With the conditions the way they were, Roberts, ( M a r k ) W a l t e r s ('91) a n d ( S t e v e ) Kaukonen ('92) were forced to run different types of races than normal."

The conditions to which Northuis referred were a quick s t a r t , forcing the runners to go out on the first mile faster than n o r m a l ; a muddy course; and the frigid cold Sandusky River, which the runners had to cross four times in foot-deep water.

But Northuis is not satisfied with just a trip to Nationals, he would like to see the team do well

point, 79 to 80. Kim Talbot of Calvin outkicked Rebecca Nichols of Mt. Union in the last 15 yards to give Calvin the regional title. The r a c e was won by Kara Berghold of Kenyon in 18:52. Berghold was followed by teammate KelJy Wilder and Sarah Braunreiter of Alma.

The group of seven runners will be flying to Des Moines, Iowa, tomorrow to prepare for the race on Saturday. Northuis is looking for at least a top 13 finish at Grinnell so Hope's region can have three t e a m s receive bids to next year's Nationals.

"If we can place five guys in the top 50, we realistically could be in the top 10 or 11," Northuis said. The m e m b e r s of the cross country team going to nationals are Burchett, Fletter, Cody Inglis ('93), Kaukonen, Pat McCarthy ('91), Roberts and Walters. In the women's race, Calvin defeated Mt. Union by just one

Hope finished in 6th place, just ahead of OtterMo and Ohio Wesleyan. , "Considering the conditions of the course and the quick start, the Hope women were caught at the start and were not able to move," Northuis said.

Jilanne Bannick ('91) led the Flying Dutch with a 5th place finish and was followed by Theresa Foster ('94, 36th), Cara Luchies ('94, 43rd) and Sheila Brink ('91, 49th).

Basketball budget amounts equal Rochelle Anderson sports editor While at some colleges the disparity between budgets for men's and women's baskeball p r o g r a m s is vast, the s a m e is not true at Hope. The question of whether the women a r e treated fairly is a good one. Men's Athletic Director Ray Smith said, 4l In my investigation, Hope is fantastic with its t r e a t m e n t of women as far as expenses.*' The m e n ' s t e a m does not take the money f r o m the ticket sales and the women do not charge admission. "All the money that is brought in through ticket sales," said Anne Irwin, the women's athletic director, " g o e s to the general fund unless other a r r a n g e m e n t s a r e m a d e in a d v a n c e . " Special cases include hosting the women's 1989 NCAA Division

111 tournament. u F o r instance, in the tournament last y e a r for the women's t e a m , " said Irwin, " t h e money f r o m tho<>e ticket sales was used to defray expenses of using the Civic C - n t e r This w a s due to the faci lhat inu<ey was not budgeted to the women for the use of theCivicCenter." The two budgets m a y be different in size, but so a r e the needs of the two t e a m s . For instance, the 1989-1990 budget for the men w a s $21,568 and the women's budget was $15,448. The men had to pay for the cost of renting theCivicCenter. It costs $40 per hour to rent the civic center and that totals $300 a game. So 11 g a m e s costs $3,300 a y e a r just for theCivicCenter The men also give g u a r a n t e e s to teams to play in t o u r n a m e n t s and that cost is around $1,5CG. Subtracting these two costs that the men have but the women do not, the two budgets a r e m o r e

c o m p a r a b l e . T h e m e n come down to $16,768. Ray Smith, the m e n ' s athletic director, takes a different approach to directing the t e a m s money. "We w a n t to give each student a positive experience playing for Hope. We're not in it for the money." What needs to be looked at is the needs of the student athlete "Do we meet the needs of the athleties in the a r e a s of transportation, uniforms, facilities, and road expenses? That is the question we must a s k , " said Smith. Smith believes that Hope does. "Both the men and the women t e a m s c o m p a r e favorably with any school we p l a y , " said Smith. Looking at turnout, Hope is second in the country for per g a m e a t t e n d e n c e in D i v i s i o n III schools. " T h e r e is an extensive waiting list for season ticket b u y e r s , " said Smith, "the town has a love for Hope College."

Field Hockey goalie joins all-stars (HOPE) - Hope College senior field hockey goalie Eileen Malkewitz of Grand Ledge has been invited to compete in the North-South Senior Allstar g a m e to be held at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. on Saturday, Nov. 17. The allstar game, sponsored by the College Field Hockey Coaches Association and held in conjunction with the NCAA Division 1 national championship tournament, will involve the nation's outstanding Division II and III senior players. This is the first time that a Hope College field hockey player has been invited to participate in this national allstar game.

"This is a fitting tribute to an outstanding student-athlete," said Hope coach K a r l a Wolters who will accompany Eileen to the game. "Until t h r e e years ago Eileen had never played the g a m e of field hockey. Through dedication and a tremendous work ethic Eileen has m a d e herself into a n outstanding field hockey p l a y e r . " This fall t h e Hope field hockey posted a 10-4-5 record a n d finished second in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) r a c e . Malkewitz "was credited with 13 shutouts, including a string of eight straight g a m e s without allowing a goal. She allowed just 12 goals over the

19 g a m e season. Malkewitz is also a pitcher on the Hope College Softball t e a m . She will be co-captain of the softball t e a m next spring. Last summ e r she participated on an Athletes In Action softball team that toured Europe.

Hope edges Calvin in All-Sports race (HOPE) - Hope College leads the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) All-Sports r a c e a f t e r the fall sports season. The MIAA All-Sports award is based on the cumulative performance of each m e m b e r school in the league's 18 sports for men and women. A f t e r t h e eight-sport F a l l season, Hope holds a slim onepoint lead over defending MIAA All-Sports champion Calvin College, 62-61. Next is Kalamazoo with 53 points followed by Albion 43, Alma 42, Adrian 28, and Olivet

Ironically, Hope did not win a fall MIAA c h a m p i o s h i p this season. It is the first y e a r since 1972 that a Hope t e a m has failed to capture a league crown during the fall season. No Hope fall team finished in the lower half of their respective league races. Hope t e a m s w e r e runnersup in four fall s p o r t s men's cross country, golf, foot-

ball, and field hockey. F i m s m u ^ in third place w e r e the m e n ' s and w o m e n ' s soccer t e a m s and women's cross country team while the volleyball team tied for fourth place. The MIAA All-Sports a w a r d has been presented since 1934-35. Hope has won the honor m o r e than any other school with 16 AllSports championships.

outstanding 6-1-2 overall record and finished second in the MIAA standings at 3-1-1. They battled c o n f e r e n c e c h a m p i o n Albion to a 10-10 tie. The Flying Dutchmen e a r n e d the label " c a r d i a c k i d s " a s six of their nine g a m e s w e r e decided on plays in the final minute of action and every g a m e hung in b a l a n c e well into the fourth q u a r t e r " I will a l w a y s r e m e m b e r this t e a m as a group that wouldn't quit " said Smith, who h a s guided Hope's football fortunes for 21 year
