No major incidents

Parietals seem to be working Hope's recently established guest policy, though not being used as much as expected, is working well, according t o b o t h students and administrators. THE POLICY, which allows students to entertain guests of the opposite sex in their rooms for three evenings and one a f t e r n o o n a week, has been in effect since early fall. According to Associate Dean of Students Michael Gerrie, reports by resident advisors on the policy have indicated that it is so far successful and 4<will be very beneficial." The reports also indicated that the policy "is not being used as much as people t h o u g h t it would be." ASKED IF STUDENTS were conforming to the rules of the new plan, Gerrie said, " T h e r e have been some violations, mostly in relation to time, but the policy has not been abused to any great e x t e n t . " He said that the unit councils have generally taken their responsibilities well, but added, "Many units have felt a need to change their unit councils." He also said that two women's cottages had decided to discontinue their guest hours because of the inconvenience they caused. The new guest plan may be having an adverse effect on at least one person outside the immediate college campus. Asked about the volume of the Holiday Inn in Holland, replied^ "Weekend-wise it's been off somewhat, but whether it's been directly due to Hope 1 don't know. Maybe so." He added that he still receives and appreciates business from Hope students: "We still have some party group every weekend. We hope that your people will continue to visit us."

DAVE VANDERWEL, head resident at Kollen Hall, said that the guest policy " d o e s n ' t seem to be making a whole lot of difference to the overall environment of the d o r m . " He emphasized his belief that it is too early to make a good evaluation of the plan: " I t s general effect still has to be measured in terms of what the atmosphere is by the end of the year." He mentioned reports f r o m other schools with open guest policies which indicated that the policies contributed to a "hotel-like" atmosphere in dormitories, and he expressed the hope that Hope's policy would not have the same effect. Asked about violations of the new rules, Vanderwel said, " F e w er have been reported than 1 expected, but I think there are more going unreported t h a n I expected." He also indicated that the plan is not fulfilling part of its original p u r p o s e - t o provide an opportunity for "coeducational s t u d y " - t o any great e x t e n t : " I t hasn't turned out to be the kind of thing people intended it would be, in that it's been almost purely social. I haven't seen a whole lot of studying come out of it." ONLY ONE CAMPUS living u n i t - w i n g IB in Kollen H a l l - h a s so far had its guest privileges revoked. According to Resident Advisor Dave Breen, the reason was "basically a violation of guest h o u r s " and use of alcohol in an incident in which "a majority of the guys present that evening were involved." He indicated that guest privileges had been revoked for an indefinite period, but that there was a good chance of regaining them later.

Dean denies existence of rumored drug list The existence of a rumored list of alleged campus drug users was denied by Dean of Students Robert DeYoung last week. "We don't keep any- list of suspected drug users," DeYoung said. "If we suspect a student of using drugs, we recommend to his Resident Advisor that he go to the student and try to help him. The advisor tells the student about the local services available, such as the Center Upstairs, the counselling center, the deans' offices and so on." He added that it would be " f o o l i s h " to try to maintain any such list. DeYoung also conjec-

tured that the rumor of its existence started because of misinterpretation of an address by Associate Dean of Students Jeanette Sprik to a local organization. "Dean Sprik had said we were aware of the problem and knew who used drugs," DeYoung explained. "But we don't know every student who might use drugs, and we'd rather not have that sort of information if the Resident Advisors can handle the situation. We don't want any undercover detective work done for the deans' office."

Several students echoed the opinions of Gerrie and Vanderwel on the guest policy as it has functioned so far. They all agreed that the privileges were being used less than expected. "Only an average of seven rooms per night out of 28 are using t h e m , " said Kollen Resident Advisor John Paarlberg. Most of the students also felt that the unit councils are fulfilling their responsibilities well. Freshman Dave Wesner said, " T h e unit council always comes around at twelve and checks. .1 only know of one violation so f a r . " The s t u d e n t s also shared the opinion that guest privileges are being used more for social than for study purposes. But one student summed u p the views of many when he said, "I think it's nice just t o be free and not have a stick over y o u r head."

The proposal to revise the curriculum requirements of Hope College was unanimously voted approval by the Academic Affairs Board Friday, puting an end to a marathon four-and-a-half hour meeting. THE VOTE CAME just days before a Tuesday deadline imposed by agenda requirements for the faculty committee of the whole meeting this m o n t h . Faculty review is the next test the bill must pass before it can be implemented. If approved by the faculty, the proposal will go to a special committee whose j o b it will be to prepare final plans for implementing the curriculum reform in time for the fall semester of 1971. Board members appeared tired but pleased as they left the meeting Friday afternoon. They had made a few major changes in the revised proposal, but they had touched on and questioned nearly every part of the 20-page document. "WHO WANTS to make histor y ? " board chairman Dr. Arthur Jentz had asked when, at the beginning of the meeting, he was searching for a motion to approve the proposal. "I move i t , " responded senior philosophy m a j o r Wayne VanderByl. The curriculum reform bill had been called "possibly one of the biggest proposed changes in 50 years" in talks preceding the AAB meeting. The board was cautious not to spell out in great detail portions of the proposal, prefering to leave that task to a special c o m m i t t e e called for in the document itself. AAB members especially avoided designing the proposed course "Introduction to Liberal Studies." While the report gives the objectives and a plan of implementation for such a course, it does not specify any course outline. THERE WAS ALSO concern in the board about the a m o u n t of flexibility students would have under the proposed plan and the ramifications of such flexibility. Dr. John Hollenbach, chairman of the English department and a

board member, said one of the ramifications of flexibility would be "a lack of predictability" of student enrollment in classes. "Students might end up saying, 4 I thought 1 could take this course, but now I can't because it's full,' " Hollenbach noted. In a last minute effort to jegulate the way in which students may fulfill the area curriculum part of the requirements, Hollenbach amended the proposal so that students would have to take three courses worth at least nine credit hours from more than one department. The original document had not mentioned the number of courses or the n u m b e r of departments. IN OTHER ACTION, the board changed the number of hours of the proposed "Introduction to Liberal Studies" course from a maximum of 12 to a maximum of 10. The minimum number of hours was left unchanged at eight. The change followed discussion led by Dr. Richard Brockmeier, associate professor of physics, who pointed out that students studying under the Sloan program would not be able to add 12 hours to their freshman schedules. Further changes involved rewording for f u r t h e r clarity within the document. A VOTE ON THE BILL was almost postponed during the final minutes of discussion. Hollenbach called on fellow board members to postpone a vote until an " o p e n " meeting to which faculty members were specifically invited could be held. Apparently there were other board members w h o had hoped to put off a vote until they could drum up some measure of support for the proposal. But chairman Jentz pressed the question, saying, "I'm uneasy about the queasiness of this board to risk their necks instead of making a recommendation. We're supposed to recommend action, not get everybody (outside the board) to agree first, then m a k e a decision." (A summary of the final proposal as passed appears on page 11)

Sent to parents

Letter explains fees hike The official a n n o u n c e m e n t that student costs are going up next year was made last week. A two-page letter to parents, written by college Treasurer and Business Manager Clarence Handlogten, confirmed earlier reports that the increase would total $250. Tuition will increase from $1,650 to $1,770; r o o m ' w i l l go up from $390 to $430; and board will be increased from $530 to $560. Also in the letter was the news that a restructuring of the fees raised the activities fee from its current $15 to $75 for next year. The new higher fee will cover the expenses of activities not directly related to the instructional program, such as Student Congress, health services, student communi-

cations media, some counselling expenses and athletic costs. The fee increase was the sixth in six years. At the beginning of 1966, students payed an .additional $100 for room and board. In 1967 tuition was increased by $100, and in 1968 total fees were hiked another $200. Fees for the 1969-70 year were raised $200. At present, student fees pay 79.5 per cent of the actual operating cost of the college. This is up from 78 per cent last year. The balance of the operating budget is provided through gifts from alumni and friends of the college, grants and e n d o w m e n t . The letter to parents contrasted with previous letters explaining the earlier hikes. Handlogten said the latest letter reflected more of himself than the

others. He wrote, "We carry on our work . . . under the conditions of a changing world. We are fortunate that Hope continues without the campus controversy of many colleges and universities, but we have the universal economic pressures of our society. Sleight of hand is no solution to the cold realities of the b u d g e t . " Handlogten further declared in the letter that efforts would be made to increase financial aid: "As we continue to o f f e r great opportunities for learning, we hope to adequately assist every deserving student. We will do our best through our financial aids program to make it possible for every student who desires t o come to Hope College to have the opportunity to earn a Hope degree."

Special Note . This week there will undoubtedly be extensive discussion centering on the "Proposal to Revise the College Curriculum Requirements" passed by the Academic Affairs Board Friday. There will be a great number of questions asked, and unfortunately the committee that wrote the proposal will not be able to answer all of them personally. The anchor

will serve as a sounding board for those questions and

answers. Next week, space will be dedicated to a "question and answer" column regarding the proposal. Questions should be addressed to the anchorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;QUESTIONS, and delivered to the paper on or by Thursday. All answers will be checked for accuracy by members of the committee, and the committee may respond by writing its own thinking on specific issues. Look for this important feature next week!

Lack of distinct goals frustrates student activism Editor's Note: This week's anchor essay is written by sophomore economics major Reginald Cohen. Entitled "Toward a rational student activism," the essay discusses the insights that come from reflecting on the so-called political student movement. Next week, the second part of this two-part article will consider what practicable plan of action students concerned with radical transformation of social relations should pursue.

T h e most generally obvious beginnings of the d e v e l o p m e n t of a political consciousness a m o n g students in the United States centered a r o u n d the issues of academic f r e e d o m . F o r a time, this c o n t r o v e r s i a l issue exclusively concerned the relations of the s t u d e n t s w i t h the educational institution and its attending faculties and administrators, academic curricula and administrative policies. It was at this crude initial phase of student consciousness that an evasively a p o c r y p h a l and apologetic explanation came t o the fore, viz., the theory of the

who have the u t m o s t intentions of ' m o r a l ' behavior!" These gradual progressions of political consciousness among students came with their increasing awareness of the significance of the relationship of key political and economic sectors of the comm u n i t y to the educational institutions themselves and their internal ( a c a d e m i c and administrative) processes. F u r t h e r m o r e , the student m o v e m e n t broadened somewhat and gained a c o n s p i c u o u s i m p e t u s with the climactic develo p m e n t s of the Vietnam war, particularly during the escalation on the part of the J o h n s o n administration in 1965. STUDENTS FOR A Democratic Society ( S D S ) - a n organization that was born as a result concern of some white s t u d e n t s about their potential role in the raging g h e t t o e s - h a d f o u n d a crucial issue in the new p r o p o r t i o n s gained in the Americanization of the war. This factor swelled their ranks, giving them the welcomed option of establishing branches of their organization in c o m m u n i t i e s all over the c o u n t r y and later in o t h e r parts of the world. These were n o t , however, the final results since the so-called student m o v e m e n t rapidly came

generation gap.

to be the Anti-War

THE EXPLANATORY inadequacy of this theory is no less than a reflection of the tacit a s s u m p t i o n - p a r t i c u l a r l y on t h e part of a m a j o r p o r t i o n of the middle strata of American socie t y - t h a t t h e t r u e source of all social m a l c o n t e n t resides in the family relationship. Yet the real c o n f i r m a t i o n of the relative inadequacy of this t h e o r y came with the gradual tendencies for its p r o p o n e n t s t o become more and more political in their rationalization as t h e s t u d e n t s became progressively m o r e political ( t h o u g h the process was significantly slow) in consciousness and m o d e s of action. T h a t is t o say, the rationalization moved f r o m : " O u r kids are telling us that we have failed t h e m ! " t o : " T h e r e are a h a n d f u l of radicals inciting our children

The differences here are of considerable i m p o r t a n c e . T h e anti-war m o v e m e n t - a s opposed to the stud e n t m o v e m e n t , whose b o u n d aries of activity were exclusively on campuses or at m o s t in t h e c o m m u n i t i e s immediately corresponding t o c a m p u s e s - a t t r a c t e d not only s t u d e n t s but workers, certain liberal m e m b e r s of the middle class social strata, high school pupils, m e m b e r s of t h e minority c o m m u n i t i e s and m a n y declassed elements. T h e b o u n d aries of political activity were so wide and irregular (i.e., containing various social classes) that t h e y tended t o obscure the reality of social factions. NOW, THE O N L Y measures of the successes and failures of the s t u d e n t m o v e m e n t could be estimated by a consideration of the

by Reginald Cohen Reflections and Insights


anchor essay successes and failures of the antiwar m o v e m e n t , which had by now ( f r o m 1965 o n ) gained the colorful yet deceptive title of the New Left. What, t h e n , were the proceeding activities of the anti-war movement? After 1965, every escalation of the war evoked a correspondingly greater protest until finally J o h n son, his popularity at a nadir and his usefulness to the system exhausted, a n n o u n c e d a cessation of the b o m b i n g of North Vietnam and his o w n ^ e t i r e m e n t from the 1968 presidential race. The war c o n t i n u e d (in fact, the total tonnage of b o m b s d r o p p e d on Vietnam and Laos went up rather t h a n d o w n ) , but the anti-war movem e n t virtually collapsed. T H E REASON WAS not any change in a t t i t u d e s but a hush that seemed t o imply the false belief that the powers that be had had enough and were going t o liquidate t h e Vietnam venture. It was not until Nixon had been in office nearly nine m o n t h s - a n d a year and a half since J o h n s o n left the political a r e n a - t h a t the protest m o v e m e n t came alive again. T h e n , in anticipation of the anti-war d e m o n s t r a t i o n planned for Washington on Nov. 15, 1969, Nixon m a d e his f a m o u s "Vietn a m i z a t i o n " speech of Nov. 3. The d e m o n s t r a t i o n took place on schedule, t h e largest of its kind in U.S. history, but once again the great mass of people wanting peace were taken in by the Presid e n t ' s rhetoric and once again t h e m o v e m e n t subsided. As had been the case in the spring of 1968, the reason was not a m o r e favorable a t t i t u d e toward the war. T H E R E IS L I T T L E d o u b t that anti-war sentiment has never ceased 1 to grow in extent and

intensity; and a growing, if subtle minority, sector of t h e m o v e m e n t had by this time come t o understand the war not as a " m i s t a k e " of U.S. foreign policy but as o n e aspect of a deadly struggle between an expanding but threatened imperialism on the one side and the rising (and potentially world-wide) forces of national liberation and social revolution on the o t h e r . But the m a j o r i t y , including m u c h of the leadership, believed, or at any rate had not given up h o p e , that t h e U.S. government really wanted to get out of Vietnam. T h r o u g h o u t the winter, it looked as though N i x o n ' s tactics were brilliantly succeeding in neutralizing anti-war sentiments. It was not until the move in Cambodia revealed the m e n d a c i t y and hypocrisy of Nixon's tactics had a single b o n e been stirred in the anti-war m o v e m e n t . A f t e r m o n t h s of quiescence, it suddenly broke out in a rash of largely leaderless and u n c o o r d i n a t e d actions, which are in part responsible for the killing of f o u r s t u d e n t s by National Guardsmen at Kent State University in Ohio. Attributable also t o the killing was, of course, the invasion of Cambodia a few days before, which was like adding inflammable fuel to the already ignited fire. Following all of these tragedies, the only end product which the so-called N e w Left could o f f e r came on May 9 in Washington, an event no m o r e impressive and certainly of no more political consequence t h a n that of Nov. 15 of t h e previous year. Some Conclusions What can we, as s t u d e n t s for the social revolution in the United States, learn f r o m the vicissitudes of the anti-war m o v e m e n t and its apparent political inefficacies? A L T H O U G H WE CAN admit to the value of d e m o n s t r a t i o n s w h e n centered a r o u n d issues which rouse masses of people, we must not fail to consider that events such as those at Kent State are s y m p t o m s of the undisciplined, sporadic and u n c o o r d i n a t e d nature of the prevalent anti-war m o v e m e n t a m o n g students. Furt h e r m o r e , we must not fail t o realize that this impulsive, unorganized activity is not w i t h o u t its ideological correlative. In SDS, for example it was not until m a n y of its hard-core members began to move i n t o the Progressive Labor P a r t y - r e a l i z i n g t h e need t o forge student-worker soli-

Final withdrawal



and completion dates announced The last date for the withdrawal f r o m courses with a " W " grade is Nov. 30, at 4 p.m. After this time, any s t u d e n t withdrawing f r o m a course will accept the grade that he has earned in that course. In e f f e c t , this means that one will not be able to withdraw a f t e r that specified date. The final day for making up all incomplete grades ( " 1 " ) left over from the second semester of last year will be Friday. A f t e r that date, any incomplete grades will be recorded as " F . "

d a r i t y - t h a t we see some e f f o r t s to obtain ideological consistency within the organization. Before t h a t , SDS was n o more than a group of random ideological variables prematurely forced (by the swelling of its ranks during the escalation) t o take on the rigorous political responsibilities to which it was not ideologically suited. FROM A L L O F T H E S E events and their resulting circumstances, we may feasibly maintain that the New Left-hoxn of the s t u d e n t movement-as a "revolutionary" m o v e m e n t is dead! Yet, we d o not assert this out of f r u s t r a t i o n , for we realize that w i t h o u t a correct as well as consistent revolutionary t h e o r y , there can be no viable and persevering revolutionary activity. This, I fancy, explains the recent demise of the " L e f t " and o t h e r pretentious "radical" movements in t h e United States. Let us now examine t h e essence of these arguments in four key points: 1) S t u d e n t opposition t o capitalist rationalization is still at a primitive and early stage. 2) Although t h e social basis for such a m o v e m e n t exists, its successful creation cannot be assumed since the actual birth of a c o h e r e n t and cumulative student movem e n t is still in d o u b t . 3) There is no inevitable line of progression f r o m t h e first manifestations of student unrest t o the establishment of a revolutionary s t u d e n t organization and practicable political action. 4 ) T h a t the campuses exist in a state of unrest is no more a presupposition of its revolutionary role than the exis, tence of t h e g h e t t o in its turmoil is a presupposition of the radicalization of the lumpenproletariat. WHAT THE S T U D E N T S concerned for the social revolution have failed t o d o is to articulate short-run programs which could give coherence and meaning t o practical everyday activity. The result has been a dual t e n d e n c y , which is only apparently contradictory, t o plunge into activism w i t h o u t any clear c o n c e p t i o n of goals a n d / o r to lose interest and drop out. In these circumstances it seems clear that the s t u d e n t s concerned for the social revolution o u g h t t o be t h i n k i n g seriously a b o u t w h e t h e r it is possible t o develop a m e a n i n g f u l short-run program which is c o m p a t i b l e with long-run revolutionary goals. Unless this problem can be solved, it is hard t o see how the m o v e m e n t can advance m u c h beyond its long prevailing stage of episodic outbursts on specific issues. Such o u t b u r s t s , although of positive educational value in exposing the nature of the system, have tendencies t o c o m e and go w i t h o u t leaving any significant organizational residue and with uncertain e f f e c t on the extent of t h e revolutionary c o m m i t m e n t of t h e participants. I frankly do not k n o w w h e t h e r an action program of the sort required can be developed, but I d o have some ideas which I would like those s t u d e n t s concerned for the social revolution t o consider for whatever they m a y be w o r t h .

They listed as d e m a n d s f r o m the administration more b u f f a l o on campus and recognition as a tribe. Later, they smoked a peace pipe to express consolidarity with the Third World.

Virgin Village has been busted! Third floor Durfee's infamous residents, known campus-wide for their refusal to accept the impositions of parietal hours, finally succumbed to pressure and voted through the policy two weekends ago. The citadel of chastity has opened u p its d o o r s and hearts t o Hope's male population, thereby destroying still another of the college's time -honored t r a d i t i o n s - girls' night in." GONE F O R E V E R are those Friday night frolics which have made the living unit famous. No longer will the hallowed halls echo with the delighted female shrieks triggered by such games as "tossher-in-the-shower" or "hey, let'stoilet-paper-somebody's-room". No longer can the curlered and pajamaed maidens gather together for an 11 p.m. uni-sex rap p a r t y , where amidst t h e fragrance of freshly popped corn and freshly showered bodies, discussions arise concerning the latest issue of American Girl magazine, or Mill's new flavor-of-the-month.

AAB approves new courses F o u r courses t o be offered the second semester of this year were approved by the Academic Affairs Board Wednesday. Interdisciplinary Studies 80, "Data Analysis in the Behavorial Sciences," was passed for t w o credit hours. A seminar study in statistical analyses used by social scientists, the class will utilize the c o m p u t e r and statistical program library. A concern over the n u m b e r of hours the c o m p u t e r is available was expressed by Dr. Richard Brockmeier. He said c o m p u t e r time is at a premium at present, and f u r t h e r courses utilizing the facility could mean s t u d e n t s would nof have adequate time t o carry out projects.

A proposed course f r o m the foreign language department also passed. French 70, "Medieval F ren ch Literature from the 9th to the 15th Centuries," will place special emphasis on poetry and theater. Readings and class discussions will comprise the three hour class, to be taught by Mrs. Linda Palmer. Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Jack Stewart pointed out that by passing the course, the board apparently agreed with a phrase in the proposal which states that the "official e n d " of t h e medieval period was 1453. Dean for Academic Affairs Morrette Rider commented, " A f t e r all, this is a policy making board."

Greek Week replaces fall rush, runs till Sat. Greek Week, a week of informal pre-rush activities sponsored by the six fraternities, began yesterday and will continue through Saturday. The week will be conducted in the same manner as a formal rush period, with the individual fraternities offering their own activities, except that no final bids will be given out at the end of the week. According to Keith Crossland, president of the Inter-Fraternal Council, Greek Week is designed to replace fall rush, which was dropped last year primarily for financial reasons. Greek Week will enable a n y o n e interested in joining a fraternity to become acquainted with the various fraternities and their members w i t h o u t the pressure of a formal rush. At the same time it will enable the fraternity members to become acquainted with those

After weeks of hearing WTAS's dedication n u m b e r , " D e a r Prud e n c e , " and experiencing paranoia each time they were asked to give their address, the reluctant ladies decided it was time to m o d i f y the " g o o d , wholesome, apple pie kids" image attributed to them by their Resident Advisor. STRONG FACTIONS were also at work within the living unit. The minority force organized a concerted campaign, as they themselves a d m i t t e d , using insidious insinuation as their weapon. The walls were plastered with posters reading, " G e t t o Know Your Fellow Man" and " N o t All Men are Mad R a p i s t s - W h a t About Your Father?" The bathroom resounded nightly with strains of "1 Can't Get No Satisfaction." Mention was made frequently of the long, cold Holland winter ahead. Although t h e enemy put up a strong fight by arguing, "Well, what if we want to take a shower when the men are u p h e r e ?

H o p e College anchor

Curriculum reform may save money Like manna from heaven, the final report of the ad hoc committee to revise the college's core requirements was presented to the Academic Affairs Board this week. It couldn't have come at a better time (not that it was supposed to). First, there is a general dearth of discussion in many of the committees and boards. This means that the AAB has little else on its mind than that report. And faced with fast approaching deadlines for action, AAB chairman Dr. Arthur Jentz decided with the approval of the

anchor e board to meet in marathon sessions. The board means business, and it refuses to be criticized for unnecessary delays or considerations of time-consuming trivia. But there is an atmosphere of urgency for more reasons than simply a November faculty meeting. It is tied with the question of fee increases, a point the anchor reported two weeks ago and which was brought home to parents this past week in those innocuous-looking letters from Van Raalte Hall. Hope stands at another one of those proverbial crossroads, this one dealing with the future of the nature of the institution. Will the college continue to raise fees, thus putting itself out of the reach of moderate income families and admitting only the very rich and those on full scholarships? Or can Hope College find other ways to keep costs down, efficiency up and quality consistent? We think that the curriculum reform proposal may provide at least a significant part of the answer. ThiTiSso for several reasons. First, the proposal assumes that there is a faculty and there is a student b o d y period. It does not ask questions about the student-faculty ratio. It does not place importance on class size. These are thrown pretty much out the window by the ad hoc committee as being aspects of the present curriculum, but not part of the new proposal. The important

question to ask, the committee is saying, is this; Is each student developing for himself an understanding of the educational process, and is he exploiting to the fullest the opportunities for learning? He may be able to do that through dozens of methods outside the traditional classroom experience, the approach in which faculty-student ratios and class size become determining factors in evaluations of quality. S e c o n d l y , a student seeking special goals is free to explore those goals outside the confines of Hope College's buildings and without burdening the staff here. For example, a student may wish to pursue the area of personnel management (perhaps one of the new liberal arts). Under the present structure, he could try to convince a budget-conscious administration that courses should be taught here in management. Naturally, that would mean new library resources, an added faculty member and perhaps additional facilities. The answer he could expect is obvious. Or he could for all practical purposes transfer from the college, taking no courses here at all while he pursues his studies at another institution. But let's say that this student doesn't want to miss out on some of the great courses Hope offers just to study personnel management. He loses his chance to study an important field faced with those limited alternatives. Under the revised curriculum proposal, he might be able to learn from experts in the area who are well-qualified to supervise the educational experience but who are not on the faculty. In effect, they become partners with the faculty in that student's education. They may demand no compensation whatsoever. The result is that the student is able to study what he thinks he can most benefit from, he could even get practical experience in the field, the college has an unlimited curriculum and there is no additional expense to the college. An educator's dream at Hope business office prices. Is there any better alternative to financial disaster than a flexible curricular structure?

anchor review

Those daring young men in the football machine Editor's Note: This w e e k ' s o r review is written by Critiques Editor Gerald Swieringa. He reviews (incredibly) the 1970 football season at Hope College. by Gerald Swieringa Lately it has become s o m e w h a t fashionable for the professional athlete to exonerate himself f r o m the games he plays and assume a pose with the men of culture. Jerry Kramer wrote Instant Replay, a diary of a season with the championship Packers, which besides proving to be a highly lucrative venture, disproved the theory that a ' m a n ' s intelligence was established as an inverse f u n c t i o n of his cubic propensities. THEN FOLLOWED Jim Bout o n ' s Ball Four, a literate and honest appraisal of professional baseball. Now there is published a b o o k , Out of Their League, by Dave Meggyesey, a f o r m e r member of t h e St. Louis Cardinal football organization. Even that apostle of butchery Dick Butkus has succumbed to the fancies of the age; he's recorded a series of Shakespeare readings. And not t o be considered a reactionary, nor yet o n e w h o bows before the intelligence of a Butkus, I have chosen t o give this brief space to a review of my o w n participation in organized athletics. What follows is a s u m m a r y of small college football as played at Hope College in the year 1970. SEASONS BEGIN in sweat and trepidation. That is the first law. Actually both the sweat and trepidation begin sometime nigh to the middle of J u l y , when t h e prospective college football player realizes he has but a sign and a half of the zodiac wherein to prepare himself for the ensuing rigors of competition. T h u s he imposes upon himself the discipline of the distance runner, gradually cutting d o w n on his Camels, and knowing full well that n o m a t t e r how extensively he prepares, his chances of surviving

the first week of September are disparingly meager. Yet, possessed with the image of an armed Adonais, he jogs, trots and eventually runs the prescribed three miles a day; pushups himself to exhaustion and weight-lifts himself to l i m p n e s s all this in an a t t e m p t to disguise that sagging derigible, his stomach. IT IS THEN ALMOST with an anticipation of relief that he approaches the opening of pre-season workouts. t4l have done my b e s t , " he says, "and if I die in what follows, let it never be said, 'tis because he reported out-ofshape.' " Ah, w h o can tell how many Spartan m o t h e r s ' hearts have quickened at those words. So the w o r k o u t s begin, and the o d d s notwithstanding, he survives them, in the morning he works, when the dew curls to the roots of the turf and the grandstand shadows slip toward obscurity. In the a f t e r n o o n he works, when the sun beats d o w n with a late s u m m e r ' s vengeance and the Gator-aid dries on his lips. In the evening, he works, when the mercury vapors wash him in whiteness and the moon dances 'twixt the bars of his face mask. And then, like a burden uplifted, like the pageant of life as it creeps f r o m the shell, it is passed; it is game time. NOW, THERE ARE two kinds of football games played at small colleges in 1970. One you win, and the other you lose. Failure is not the key and neither is moderation. No, the key is t o win as many of the nine scheduled encounters as possible. The more you win, the better football team you are; and the more you lose, the harder you work in practice the following week. It's simple, until you realize that each of those nine o t h e r football teams enjoy working hard in practice a b o u t as m u c h as you do. Hence, a complication. In theatre this is called a scene of recognition when the hero realizes

Howard Hageman to address convocation tonight at 8:15 Howard G. Hageman, noted a u t h o r , columnist, minister and the second speaker of the newly initiated chapel convocation series, will lecture tonight at 8 : 1 5 p.m. in Wichers A u d i t o r i u m . Hageman, who also participated in the Student Church service yesterday, will speak on the topic "What is Dying, Christianity or C h r i s t e n d o m ? " Considered the most effective preacher in the R e f o r m e d Church and one of the top preachers in the c o u n t r y , Hageman is presently pastor of the North R e f o r m e d Church of Newark, N. J. Chaplain William Hillegonds called him a 4 ' s t i m u l a t i n g , provocative lect u r e r " who " m a k e s R e f o r m e d theology seem as if it were written yesterday." Hageman, a regular columnist for the Church Herald, is a specialist in the areas of preaching, church history and church music, and has written five b o o k s as well as n u m e r o u s articles for various theological journals. A native of L y n n , Mass., he attended Harvard University and New Brunswick Seminary and re-

ceived an honorary d o c t o r of divinity degree f r o m Central College in 1957. He served as president of the General Synod of the Reformed Church in America from 1959-60.

at long last that those good people who had pledged t o help him rescue the heroine are really the crooks who want her m o n e y and his life. The only difference is that in football it usually comes on the first play of the season. UNFORTUNATELY, very few football teams are able to win all their games. And of course fortunately very few of them lose all their games. Like everything else, the vast majority of football teams are s o m e w h e r e in the middle, winning sometimes, losing others. To bring things closer to home, the Hope College Flying Dutchmen f o o t b a l l machine, ( t h a t ' s what football teams are called sometimes, machines) won five of its games and lost four. That put them pretty much in the middle, but a little better than most. Specifically they started out pretty bad, r and so they had to work hard in practice. But a f t e r a while they started getting better, and so y o u ' d think they w o u l d n ' t have to work so hard in practice a n y m o r e . You'd think that, but that is not what h a p p e n e d . THROUGH A STRANGE quirk of fate, called a good coach, they just kept right on working hard in practice, and by the end of the season they were really pretty good. T h e y were so good, in fact, that by the time the last

rIV GERALD SWIERINGA game of the year rolled a r o u n d , (that's what years do, roll a r o u n d ) they could even a f f o r d t o miss a day of practice because it rained and still win the game, which they did. And then the season ended, and everyone handed back their shoulder pads and helmets with their names in so they could get them back next year and started working out on the Universal G y m . Everyone, that is, except

Q.: Will the s t u d e n t d e f e r m e n t be abolished? A.: On April 23, 1970, the President asked Congress for authority t o eliminate the s t u d e n t d e f e r m e n t . Only Congress can provide this a u t h o r i t y . In t h e past, Representative Mendel Rivers, Chairman of the House Armed Services C o m m i t t e e , has been a strong advocate of the s t u d e n t d e f e r m e n t . However, recently he indicated he was having " s e c o n d t h o u g h t s " a b o u t his position. He said he "was becoming dise n c h a n t e d " with the s t u d e n t deferment because of the college disorders f o m e n t e d by deferred students. With this change in Representative Rivers' position, the chances for the elimination of the student d e f e r m e n t are greatly increased. Q.: If the s t u d e n t d e f e r m e n t is abolished, what will be my chances of keeping the II-S deferment until I graduate? A.: A recent Local Board Memo r a n d u m provided the following warning: " U n d e r legislation now pending in Congress, a registrant who obtains a . . . II-S d e f e r m e n t by enrolling on April 23, 1970 or thereafter may lose his d e f e r m e n t in the f u t u r e . " The legislation referred t o was proposed by the President on April 23. If e n a c t e d , students in this year's f r e s h m a n class may find themselves w i t h o u t a d e f e r m e n t next year.


the seniors, who weren't allowed to put their names in their helmets and work out on the Universal Gym on account of the fact that they won't be back next year. They had to go to the p u b instead. THERE IS ONLY one of two things a senior can say when he is done^ and hangs up his spikes, (that's what seniors do when they're d o n e , hang up their spikes). He can say, " B o y am I glad I hung up my spikes," or he can say, " B o y I wish I was out there playing again." Now, considering how hard he has worked in practice over four years of small college football and considering his chances of receiving major injury which would prevent him f r o m serving his c o u n t r y , and considering how far behind he has g o t t e n in school due to all the time he has been playing football, y o u ' d think he would say, "Boy am I glad I hung up my spikes." You'd think that, but he doesn't. He s a y s , - " B o y I wish I was out there playing again," because he really loves it, playing football. He loves it so m u c h he talks about it for a long, long time after his spikes are hung. Sometimes he loves it so much he even writes reviews a b o u t it, that is when he is not p e r f o r m i n g Shakespeare.

for $1 f r o m Brooklyn Bridge Press, P.O. Box 1894, Brooklyn, New York 11202. Q . : . C a n I get a c o m p l e t e copy of my selective service file? A.: Yes. Every registrant, is entitled t o secure a copy of his file. The procedure is as follows: (1) You should send a letter to your local board requesting a photostatic copy of your selective service file (officially called a Cover Sheet). (2) A copy of the letter must be sent to the state h e a d q u a r t e r s of the state in which your local board is located. Your local board can tell you the address of t h e state headquarters. (3) The state director will t h e n write t o you informing you of t h e city in which the copying will be done. In most cases, this city will be the location of the state headquarters. ( 4 ) You must then m a k e arrangements with a commercial duplicating firm in the city designated. T h e arrangements should provide that a representative of the Selective Service System will bring in the file for duplication. The representative will not pay for the duplication. Thus, y o u must agree with the commercial firm on some f o r m of advance p a y m e n t or subsequent billing. (5) When you have made these arrangements, write the state director informing him of the name and address of the firm. (6) T h e state director will arrange for an e m p l o y e e t o take your file t o the copying firm and m o n i t o r the r e p r o d u c t i o n "in order to protect t h e confidential-

ity of the file." Y o u must pay " $ 5 per hour, or f r a c t i o n thereof in excess of one-quarter h o u r for the employee's time to m o n i t o r the reproduction c o m p u t i n g f r o m the time of his d e p a r t u r e until his return t o his p o s t . " (7) T h e file and its c o p y will be returned t o the state headquarters. You will be sent a bill for the monitoring service. A f t e r the bill is paid, you will be sent t h e copy of your file. Q.: Why is it i m p o r t a n t for me to have a copy of my file? A.: T h e copy provides you with p r o t e c t i o n against the possibility that local board m e m b e r s or clerks will alter the c o n t e n t s of your file t o cover up their mistakes. F o r example, consider a conscientious o b j e c t o r classification. His local board denied the request a n d , as required by law, wrote d o w n the reason and placed the letter in his file. A few m o n t h s later, a c o u r t , in an unrelated case, declared this particular reason an i m p r o p e r ground for denying a C.O. request. When the young m a n ' s board learned of the court case, it opened his file and changed the reason f o r denying his C.O. request so that it n o w c o n f o r m e d to the law. Ultimately, the young man refused induction. F o r t u n a t e l y , his a t t o r n e y had made a c o m p l e t e copy of the young m a n ' s file before the board m e m b e r s had m a d e any changes. At the trial he noticed the change. The case was t h r o w n out of court with instructions to the U.S. A t t o r n e y t o investigate the conduct of the board members.

Nine easy steps to publishing

1. Find someone who can write, and find something he should write about.

your own paper


3. Check the teletype to make sure the world out there still exists.

7. When you begin pasteup, make sure you have a person who can edit-. After all, this is where all \ the decisions are made. Keep in mind that the editor has no control over these things.

2. Ask the nice young man in the darkroom why the pictures are so blurry.

4. Check the office to make sure the staff in there still exists.

5. Now you are ready to compose the newspaper.

The New York Times

Birth and Death is not only a rare film but also one of the most highly-acclaimed films of its kind. It teaches, it moves the heart, it stirs the soul. Birth tells the story of a young couple eagerly awaiting, and finally having, their first child. Death tells the story of a 52-year-old man awaiting and finally meeting his own death. A MAN FOR A L L SEASONS * February 26, 27 "Thomas More is a man of angel's wit and singular learning . . . a man of marvelous mirth and pastimes, and sometimes of a sad gravity - a man for all seasons." So wrote Robert Whittinton more than four centuries ago. — Winner of Six Academy Awards — Four New York Film Critics' prizes — OTHER VOICES March 5, 6 "Highly dramatic, emotional, and sometimes violent."—N.Y. Times "The film pierces the darkness that results when other voices overwhelm the rational mind . . . patients' private odysseys through corridors of inner chaos are shown through its bruising immediacy requiring no cinematic ploys or emotional gambits."— TIME "I highly recommend this picture to anyone who is interested in man."—Dr. Erich Fromm.

Lee Marvin, riding his inebriated palamino, won an Academy Award as best actor of the year for his performance as the drunkest gunfighter in the West, one of the few times in the long history of the coveted "Oscar" that a comic role was so honored.

Not every star can handle with sensitivity the nuances peculiar to the role of a symphony conductor — both on and off the podium — especially when a bitter sweet romance looms among his off-podium activities. But for Oskar Werner, playing such a role presented merely a technical problem which he soon solved by studying under the well-known London conductor Fleischmann. The gifted Barbara Ferris, as a young journalist, provides a romantic interlude in his life. " A grand love story."—Cue Magazine.

VanderLugt guides Hope in search for truth When y o u walk i n t o his o f f i c e (his d o o r is almost always o p e n ) , y o u are inevitably greeted with a warm w e l c o m e . You look a r o u n d the r o o m , and you are surprised to see t w o b o o k s on t o p of the pile of papers: a Hope College catalog and a black l e a t h e r e t t e Bible. F O R C H A N C E L L O R William V a n d e r L u g t , those t w o docum e n t s arc part of o n e p h i l o s o p h y . He keeps them on his desk because they are both essential: the Gospel is his inspiration, and Hope College is w h e r e he applies that inspiration. ' T h e relationship of faith and learning is vital," he maintains. ' T h e e d u c a t o r asks, 'Who am 1 and what is m a n ? ' T h e Christian u n d e r s t a n d s that m a n c o m e s to fullest stature t h r o u g h Christian revelation. He sees himself in relation to G o d .

But hasn't the c h u r c h o f t e n c o n f u s e d its politics with its religion in its dealings w i t h t h e college? V A N D E R L U G T IS QUICK to a n s w e r : " V e r y m u c h so. T h e r e is a great deal of m i s u n d e r s t a n d i n g on this issue. T h a t is why t h e r e is t e n s i o n b e t w e e n t h e c h u r c h and t h e college." F o r the Chancellor, the c h u r c h is not a " w a t c h d o g " of college p o l i c y ; it is the philosophical and material basis for the college. And in a sense, that m a k e s the college t h e w a t c h d o g of the c h u r c h . "THE COLLEGE NEEDS y o u n g people f r o m the c h u r c h and it needs the c h u r c h ' s s u p p o r t .

" T h e Gospel is such a rich and all-inclusive t r u t h that no one has fully f a t h o m e d it. T h e college is constantly searching out that truth."

HE P A U S E S F O R a m o m e n t , t h e n adds, " T h e r e will be tensions, but this is g o o d . " Now he explains h o w the c h u r c h fulfills its m o s t i m p o r t a n t f u n c t i o n for the college. " T h e c h u r c h must provide t h e basic p h i l o s o p h y , the goals. But just h o w these are t o be accomplished must be the college's d e c i s i o n . " He implies that decisions at Hope should be m a d e on the basis of goals and values, not "press u r e s , " even t h o u g h the pressure might c o m e f r o m c h u r c h people. "1 w o u l d n ' t be too c o n c e r n e d with (financial s u p p o r t ) .

" conversation r e t u r n s to t h e p h o n e call, and VanderLugt adds, "We s h o u l d n ' t let these sorts of things influence our decisions." H E E X P L A I N S T H A T IT is the Christian faith which allows individuals the f r e e d o m to m a k e decisions. " S o m e people think Christianity hinders f r e e d o m . But Christianity is not the 'celestial frost that shrivels the bloom of life.' It is the lifeblood that m a k e s things bloom. " T h e r e must be c o n t r o l s , of course, inner controls.

T h e n what a b o u t his earlier comm e n t that "every d e p a r t m e n t must take the position that the Christian world view is their conc e r n ? " What does it m e a n when

h e says that staff m e m b e r s "should have a p r e t t y good unders t a n d i n g of the Christian f a i t h " ? First, VanderLugt " a b s o l u t e l y o p p o s e s " the theory t h a t the educator should present the neutral point of view. " T h e s t u d e n t has the right to k n o w w h e r e the faculty m e m b e r stands. 1 d o n ' t agree that a s t u d e n t should not k n o w his i n s t r u c t o r as a person. When y o u take one of my classes, you should k n o w by the end of the course what my beliefs a r e - w h e r e I stand. Maybe a faculty m e m b e r should a n n o u n c e at the beginning of his class his personal biases and colorations." IN O R D E R TO P R O M O T E free inquiry, should there then be s o m e faculty m e m b e r s w h o are not professing Christians? " M a y b e so. I c o u l d n ' t present, say, the c o m m u n i s t point of view. 1 think only a person w h o believes

in the c o m m u n i s t p h i l o s o p h y can present it well. Should we then have a c o m m u n i s t o n the staff? 1 d o n ' t k n o w . Maybe s o . " Regardless of what philosophy t h e y may hold as individuals, faculty m e m b e r s should be aware that Hope College is a churchaffiliated college, V a n d e r L u g t believes. " T H E R E MUST BE a c o m m o n l o y a l t y - a core. Whether everyone should have a c o m m i t m e n t to the same degree, I d o n ' t k n o w . T h a t ' s s o m e t h i n g I've been struggling with. But there has t o be a playing of the game according t o certain rules." F o r Chancellor William VanderLugt, the rules are clear and direct: "a willingness to live life on G o d ' s terms. • " T h i s is w h a t we present t o the s t u d e n t s . It is o u r o b j e c t i v e . "

One college does more than broaden horizons. It sails to them, and beyond. Now there's a way for you to know the w o r l d around you first-hand. A way to seethe things you've read about, and study as you g o . T h e way is a college that uses the Parthenon as a classroom for a lectureon Greece, and illustrates Hong Kong's floating societies w i t h a ride on a harbor sampan. Chapman College's W o r l d Campus Afloat enrolls t w o groups of 500 students every year and opens up the w o r l d for them. Your campus is the s. s.

BUT T H E R E ARE a few things a b o u t his bravery that have not been publicly m e n t i o n e d . His c o n d u c t d u r i n g one of t h e a t t e m p t s on his life was p e r h a p s the best illustration of the supreme courage of Charles de Gaulle.

(AP) He was a (all, haughty old man with a wintry smile and a f o r b i d d i n g gaze. Bui this man was France. C H A R L E S I ) t G A U L L E frustrated his allies, irritated his staunchest s u p p o r t e r s and m a d e e n e m i e s of p o t e n t i a l friends. But above all, litis man loved his country as few men have. Mis departure leaves a ragged gap in the fabric ol a nation slill searching for its place in the world's affairs. To meet ("haries de (laulic was an e x p e r i e n c e in itself. From his great height he looked d o w n benignly, like a f a t h e r presiding over the family (able. He always s p o k e softly and with a c o n c e r n thai m a d e a man feel he was w e l c o m e . But he also could be coldly angry. Thai he was brave has been well d o c u m e n t e d .

lie was on his way to his helicopter pad at Viilacoublay. The Secret. Army organization had planned his d e a t h , and thai of his wife. As his car sped along, the machine gunners o p e n e d fire f r o m two side roads. At the s o u n d , the old man remained upright but turned to his wife and said, " B o w y o u r h e a d . " Mine, de Gaulle, herself of the same m e t t l e , did not. T h e n a n o t h e r burst struck the car, and she did bow her head. Bui the old general remained upright and said, with some asperity, " W h y aren't the police s h o o t i n g b a c k ? " WHEN T H E Y A R R I V E D safely at Viilacoublay, the old man said with the patieni resignation he chose when displeased; " T h e people who are charged with protect ing me are as bad shots as those who are trying to kill m e . "

A n y o n e w h o saw the old man in public would never suspect that he had any t i m e for light heart edness. This was not so. An aide once said that he e n j o y e d h u m o r provided it c a m e f r o m an intelligent man and not f r o m a b u f f o o n . O n e of his favorites was George Brown, the f o r m e r British foreign minister w h o o f t e n got into hot water by ignoring diplomatic niceties. "ME L I K E S B R O W N , " an aide once said. "Me likes the airy h u m o r of the man and he respects his m e n t a l i t y . " Charles de Gaulle seemed ponderous to m a n y , thrashing them with the "glory of F r a n c e . " But when De Gaulle spoke of the glory of France, ii lived again, lily banners, ships of the line and all. Not only a man has died. Part of a c o u n t r y died with him.

Summary of curriculum reform proposal Editor's Note: The Academic Affairs Board Friday passed a 20-page, extensive curriculum reform proposal. The bill will go to the faculty for review later this month. The following is a summary of the proposal in paraphrase and direct quotation. by Tom Donia

B. A broadened awareness

For over a year the ad h o c c o m m i t t e e on Revision of the College Curriculum R e q u i r e m e n t s , a p p o i n t e d by the Dean and responsible t o t h e Academic Affairs Board, has struggled with its task: to e x a m i n e Hope's present core curriculum, to decide whether that curriculum needs changing and t o p r o p o s e the changes judged necessary. The c o m m i t t e e c o n c u r r e d that t h e basic educational philosophy of the college was sound a n d its religious c o m m i t m e n t of crucial i m p o r t a n c e . F u r t h e r , the c o m m i t t e e agreed that some kind of required core program was necessary and that the basic, broad objectives of t h e present program were well f o u n d e d . The c o m m i t t e e ' s c o n c e r n , a guiding principle, was t h a t H o p e ' s c o m m i t m e n t to the individual s t u d e n t should be more obviously an integral part of its core curriculum. H o p e ' s s t u d e n t s have widely varying interests and concerns, a n d they arrive with very different pre-college preparations a n d widely differing native abilities. In t h e c o m m i t t e e ' s j u d g m e n t , the present p r o g r a m does not respond adequately t o those differences. T h e c u r r e n t basic program allows only limited variation since all s t u d e n t s are required t o take specified courses. For some s t u d e n t s such a d e f i n e d core may be h e l p f u l . But t h e c o m m i t t e e c o n t i n u e s t o think of those s t u d e n t s for w h o m such a p r o g r a m may not be beneficial a n d those w h o m a y even find it an obstacle t o their educations. Educational and personal growth does n o t follow one p a t t e r n for all individuals, and it seemed possible and feasible to develop a core curriculum program that c o u l d be more readily a d a p t e d t o the individual s t u d e n t . (If t h e s t u d e n t is t o have a greater role in designing his academic program, it is essential t h a t the college provide that s t u d e n t with a s o u n d academic advising program. T h e following proposal is predicated o n an advising program that is b o t h viable a n d t h o r o u g h . ) What the c o m m i t t e e has a t t e m p t e d t o describe is a program that can be m o r e easily tailored t o each individual s t u d e n t than t h e present program. T h e a u t h o r s d o not p r e t e n d that our proposal is c o m p l e t e or p e r f e c t . T h e y do believe, however, that it is freeing enough t o p r o m o t e creative e d u c a t i o n , t h a t is it is structured e n o u g h t o insure responsible e d u c a t i o n , and that it is flexible enough t o allow a m e n d m e n t without d e s t r o y i n g its c o h e r e n c e . P H I L O S O P H Y OF E D U C A T I O N A T HOPE C O L L E G E T h e philosophy of education at Hope is conveniently ( t h o u g h n o t exhaustively) s u m m a r i z e d by the phrase, "Liberal education within the Christian t r a d i t i o n . " A liberal e d u c a t i o n seeks to create an appreciative awareness of h u m a n achievem e n t s - i n t e l l e c t u a l , social and artistic. It is n o t i n c o m p a t i b l e with academic specializat i o n . A certain b r e a d t h of u n d e r s t a n d i n g c o m e s only t h r o u g h sustained deep inquiry. Since liberal arts e d u a c t i o n seeks t o develop t h e whole m a n , a Christian world view invests education with p u r p o s e a n d direction. H o p e ' s traditional Christian comm i t m e n t provides a f o u n d a t i o n f o r defining m o r a l values and moral j u d g m e n t s . It is t h e c o m m i t t e e ' s belief that an i n f o r m e d unders t a n d i n g of the Christian faith provides a viable f o u n d a t i o n f o r academic excellence a n d f u l f i l l m e n t of h u m a n p o t e n t i a l . T h i s c o m m i t m e n t is c o n s o n a n t with scholarly pursuits a n d personal f r e e d o m . THE OBJECTIVES OF THE CURRICUL U M A T HOPE COLLEGE T h e curriculum m a j o r objectives:

seeks t o

assess the validity of relationships a m o n g assumptions, factual i n f o r m a t i o n and conclusions. The achievement of this objective d e p e n d s upon the stud e n t ' s ability t o read and listen and t o express himself persuasively and clearly.

Through direct experience with various artistic and scholarly disciplines and perspectives, a student should transcend the provincialities of his earlier thinking and experiences. By acquiring scholarly habits and a t t i t u d e s and by encouraging and strengthening his curiosity he insures for himself a l i f e - l o n g joy in learning.

C. The ability study

to engage in intensive The senior seminar program - The spe-

In-depth s t u d y , c o m m o n l y referred t o as a " m a j o r " is a necessary step in the development of a s t u d e n t ' s powers of understanding. In-depth study in o n e area makes superficialities in other areas less tolerable. Sustained orderly participation in an academic discipline usually leads to a broadening of intellectual concerns.

D. A sense of the interrelatedness of knowledge, experience and responsibility As the s t u d e n t becomes increasingly aware of the interdependent aspects of h u m a n experience and knowledge, he is encouraged to develop for himself a personal philosophy of life which gives meaning and wholeness t o his learning, experiencing and valuing. In particular, he should u n d e r s t a n d how the Christian world view can a f f e c t that philosophy of life. THE I M P L E M E N T A T I O N OF HOPE'S EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES The curriculum program was constructed with the above philosophy in mind. The c o m m i t t e e believes that the proposed program can be instituted without major changes in the current course offerings. The c o m m i t t e e did not explore o t h e r academic m a t t e r s that have direct bearing on the curriculum, such as the grading system, credit hour calculations, graduation requirements, calendar revisions and so. f o r t h . T h e c o m m i t t e e agreed that requirements per se are not incompatible with our educational philosophy and objectives, but that r e q u i r e m e n t s need to be more flexible than those currently in operation. The proposed curriculum s t r u c t u r e is divided into three basic c o m p o n e n t s , which follow.


T h e s t u d e n t s h o u l d be able t o discern a s s u m p t i o n s a n d premises; t o e x a m i n e critically and evaluate a r g u m e n t s , generalizations, h y p o t h e s e s and m e t h o d s ; to i d e n t i f y biases and c o n t r a d i c t i o n s ; t o

cific purpose of this program is to help the student reassess and clarify his own values and their sources. Since n o educational enterprise is amoral and since the Christian world view has implications for all moral value systems, this program should encourage the s t u d e n t t o dig (sic) his responsibilities as a citizen and a scholar with intelligence and moral sensitivity. The course requirement for this program is fulfilled, normally during the senior year, by taking one of t h e approved senior seminar courses of at least three credit hours. Courses approved under the present program s h o u l d , however, be re-examined to insure that they fulfill the above stated purposes. Any proposed new senior seminar course should go through the established procedures for approval.




The aim of the area curriculum program is the development of a broadened awareness. Rationale for the area requirements centers m o r e upon increasing the s t u d e n t ' s awareness of different perspectives, approaches and processes than upon exposing the s t u d e n t to particular bodies of knowledge. The c o m m i t t e e divided up learning in four broad* areas. The boundaries between the areas may not always be precise, but the Academic Affairs Board will have final a u t h o r i t y in determining the area(s) to which a particular course will be assigned: 1 . The Inherited World, where perspective and learning are frequently intuitive, might include m a n y courses in p h i l o s o p h y , history, literature and religion.. 2. The Behavorial World, where perspective and learning are integrative and "organismic," might include most courses in e c o n o m i c s , sociology, political science and psychology.

program, required of all freshmen and lasting two semesters with a m i n i m u m of eight semester hours and a m a x i m u m of t e n , seeks to provide an entree t o liberal education in the Christian t r a d i t i o n . It endeavors t o provide conceptual frameworks in t h e freshman year which will enhance the comprehension and relevance of all other intellectual endeavors and h u m a n experience. The objectives of this program for

3. The Natural World, where perspective a n d learning are ordered and sequential, might include m a n y courses in chemistry, physics, geology and biology. 4. The Symbolic World, where learning and perspective a n d communicative and expressive, might include certain courses in m a t h e m a t i c s , foreign language, comm u n i c a t i o n and the fine arts, which are highly dependent on acquiring and using a particular language or symbol system.


student are: 1. an acquisition of those academic skills that are prerequisite to serious intellectual inquiry and discourse. 2. an understanding of f u n d a m e n t a l concepts which apply to the organization of m a n ' s knowledge, including some formal training in logic. 3. an understanding of the n a t u r e of the world view and the particular Christian world view that this college states in its philosophy. 4 . an appreciation of the roles of artist and the aesthetic experience in h u m a n society.

fulfill f o u r

A. The ability to understand, and communicate ideas

create a separate d e p a r t m e n t to administer this program. 2. That this new d e p a r t m e n t have one director and a c o m m i t t e e of three faculty m e m b e r s representing each division t o implement the purposes and objectives of the program. 3 . That the director and the c o m m i t t e e outline the specific procedures for launching the program; that they draw the teaching staff f r o m various segments of the Hope faculty; that they yearly submit an evaluation of the program t o the Academic Affairs Board and the dean for academic affairs. 4. That the director and the c o m m i t t e e be administratively responsible t o the Academic Affairs Board.

Since the above objectives d o not exist in isolation of each o t h e r , and since they can be achieved in a variety of ways, the c o m m i t t e e makes the following proposals: 1. That the I n t r o d u c t i o n t o Liberal Studies Program not be identified with any one existing d e p a r t m e n t and that the dean for academic affairs, in consultation with the Academic Affairs Board,

It is proposed that there be a m i n i m u m area requirement of three courses (nine semester hours) f r o m at least two departm e n t s . s t u d i e s in t h e natural world area must include a l a b o r a t o r y experience, and no m o r e than three h o u r s in the physical education d e p a r t m e n t m a y be c o u n t e d toward fulfillment of the behavioral world area r e q u i r e m e n t . In m a n y cases, it will be advantageous for a student to take two courses in sequence. T h e proposed area requirements give the s t u d e n t flexibility in choosing particular courses while being exposed to the m a j o r areas of knowledge. In consultation with his advisor, the s t u d e n t may choose a curricular program appropriately aligned with his abilities, past learning and goals. (Deficiency in any college entrance requirement as stated in the college catalog must be removed b e f o r e graduation, and the course taken t o remove such deficiency may not be used to fulfill the area curriculum requirements.)

I. THE CONTRACT CURRICULUM The program of liberal studies, area curriculum and the departmental major may not be the best course pattern for all students. T h e r e f o r e , the c o m m i t t e e proposes a n o t h e r curricular pattern of limited enrollment. T h e c o n t r a c t curriculum provides a pattern for some s t u d e n t s w h o are capable of and eager for more self-determination in their e d u c a t i o n . It also allows for concentrated studies in one area and b r o a d e n e d awareness later in t h e academic program of some students. But the contract program is not to be considered an honors program. The contract curriculum might apply t o the area curriculum, or it could also apply to the pattern for meeting the goal of in-depth study a n d , in some cases, replace the d e p a r t m e n t a l m a j o r . To implement this part of the proposal, the c o m m i t t e e r e c o m m e n d s : 1. Any s t u d e n t m a y apply for admission to the program a f t e r completion of two semesters of s t u d y . It will be the responsibility of the student to provide concrete evidence that he is both able and sufficiently responsible and m o t i v a t e d t o pursue such an independent program. Such evidence might include his part academic record, psychological test results, letters of r e c o m m e n d a t i o n , and an interview. 2. The s t u d e n t must seek out o n e faculty m e m b e r w h o will act as his m e n t o r for a period normally not t o exceed t w o semesters. The s t u d e n t and the m e n t o r will propose a c o n t r a c t which outlines the course of s t u d y . 3. The c o n t r a c t shall be submitted t o a faculty c o n t r a c t c o m m i t t e e c o m p o s e d of the dean for academic affairs or the associate d e a n , one faculty m e m b e r appointed by the d e a n , and two faculty m e m b e r s selected by the s t u d e n t and his m e n t o r . T h e faculty contract c o m m i t t e e will evaluate the contract in light of the educational objectives stated above. T h e c o m m i t t e e ' s approval of the contract shall be based u p o n criteria designed to maximize the possibility of the stud e n t ' s successful completion of the contract. 4. The writing of the contract is obviously of crucial i m p o r t a n c e . Care must be taken to m a k e the contract as comprehensive as possible. That contract shall state the educational objectives and means for carrying them o u t , provide criteria for evaluation, acknowledge educational risks involved, and m a k e provisions for " s t a t e m e n t s of progress" t o the faculty c o n t r a c t c o m m i t t e e . 5. The faculty contract c o m m i t t e e , having periodically evaluated the stud e n t ' s progress, will certify the fulfillm e n t of the c o n t r a c t according t o the terms proposed therein. Such certification might include written and oral examinations. 6. The period of the contract shall be no less than a semester in duration and may e x t e n d t o the time of graduation. If the c o n t r a c t shall e x t e n d to the time of g r a d u a t i o n , which could be as long as three years, the faculty c o n t r a c t comm i t t e e will have full power t o determine the r e q u i r e m e n t s for the bachelor of arts degree, as well as assigning honors. 7. Should a s t u d e n t decide t o terminate his c o n t r a c t b e f o r e the time of its fulfillment, the faculty c o n t r a c t comm i t t e e will have the final decision as to how m a n y credit hours of work have been c o m p l e t e d and where in the area curriculum they shall be applied. If the c o n t r a c t work is t o be applied to a m a j o r , t h e n the contract c o m m i t t e e will assign credit h o u r s and grades in the area curriculum after consulting with the chairmen of the designated departments.

MODUS OPERANDI Since we think that the above proposal exhibits a curricular restructuring that is c o h e r e n t , flexible and discreet, we therefore r e c o m m e n d : 1. That the Academic Affairs Board a d o p t or revise the above proposal in time for faculty review at the November faculty meeting; and 2. That the Dean for Academic Affairs, a f t e r final faculty approval of the above proposal, a p p o i n t a new C o m m i t t e e t o outline the procedures for installing the program for the fall semester, 1971.


Hope College anchor

November 16t 1970

1970 basketball season will be a tough one by Mark VanOostenberg Basketball at Hope College this year promises to be interesting. As the season approaches the only thing certain is that no one knows exactly what Hope is going to do. Coach Russ DeVette suggested in an interview that Hope will have a tough time this year. It will be one of Coach DeVette's most difficult seasons. More this season than in recent years, Coach De Vette is being faced with the dilemma of who to play and in what combination to play them. DeVette cannot set up a game plan or strategy until he knows who will play. THE GAME PLAN will be influenced by several other factors. In sizing up the personnel of this year's prospective team, DeVette sees rebounding as Hope's greatest weakness and shooting as the team's greatest strength. In order to make up for an apparent lack of rebounding strength, Hope will rely on either its three big men or just desire, quickness, and speed. Hope will likely depend on a combination of both. The Dutch will be led this year by first team a l l - M I A A guard Dan Shinabarger. Shinabarger and Lorenzo Howard should form one of the best back court combinations in the MIAA this season. These two players are reasonably assured of starting births. Returning center Dave Gosselar is also counted on for heavy duty. Gosselar was f i f t h in field goal percentage in the MIAA with a shooting average of .524. Other possible starters are Marty Snoap and Ric Scott at forward, although Dave Harmelink is still in the running. PRACTICE SESSIONS this year have been more strenuous than in the past. Coach DeVette wants to prepare his team for a

RUSSELL DEVETTE running, hustling defense-minded season. The candidates for the team are seniors Keith Crossland, Lon Eriks, Gene Miller and Ric Scott; juniors John Constant, Dan Shinabarger, Lorenzo Howard, Marty Snoap and Jack Hankamp; and sophomores Doug Smith, Tom VanWieren, Brad Lyons, Lee Brandsma, Rick Ross, Doug Edema, Dave Harmelink, Tom Wolters and Dave Gosselar. The Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association should be a well-balanced league with no one team standing out f r o m the pack. As always Calvin is a pre-season favorite, but Alma and Olivet are also hungry for an MIAA championship. Albion, Kalamazoo, Hope and Adrian can not be called strong contenders, but in as m u c h as there are unknown quantities on each team no predictions of doom have been made.


CALVIN WILL be extremely tough with many returning lettermen. The two best are Doug Taatjes, a second team MIAA forward, and outstanding defensive man Del Willink. Add to these fine performers Calvin's tremendous junior varsity team of last year and it is not hard to understand why Calvin will be strong this season. Alma's strength lies in the MIAA's leading scorer of last season, Charles Hudson, and Ike Neitring, a 6 , 6 , , junior center from Grand Haven. Olivet has perhaps the finest all-around player in the league in center Dave Maliasz. Olivet is also an extremely good-shooting ball club, Hope College will begin its season away Dec. 1 against Concordia. The Dutch will play their home bout debut with Aquinas Dec. 5. Hope College is faced with the difficult task of playing its first three MIAA games away from the friendly home t o w n fans. These first three games could easily make or break the Dutch as they will be playing Albion, Calvin and Olivet. ADD TO THIS the fact that six of Hope's first nine league games will be played away. If the Dutch can survive the first half of the season, the schedule will be in their favor down the stretch. The

The Hope harriers paced their way one position closer to the top of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association track contender list Wednesday by defeating the Calvin Knights, '133-163, at Albion. T h e win brought the Dutchmen a share of the f i f t h place p o s i t i o n - t i e d with C a l v i n - i n the MIAA final standings. Alma took first place in the league t o u r n a m e n t with a score of 21. The four-mile heat was taken by Alma standout Don Yehle with a time of 20:08. Hope's Brian Claxton placed first among the seven Dutchmen, coming in number 18 in the field with a time of 2 1 : 2 6 . Close behind were Nick Kramer at the 24th spot, Marty Stark at 2 8 t h , Ron Bultema at 2 9 t h , Jim Mattison at 34th, Bob Scott at 39th and Gene Haulenbeek at 41st.

change is the chance it affords Hope and Calvin to scout each other. A few factors can be predicted. Dan Shinabarger will score his 700th career point the very first time he tallies. Lee Brandsma, a transfer student, will be in the plans for the second semester. Calvin has lost only once in the last three years at home. This suggests that playing away from home can be tough. These factors should help to make this season an interesting and exciting one for MIAA fans and players.

GVSC and Georgetown added to football season Hope College will play six home games during the 1971 football season Athletic Director Gordon Brewer announced recently. The Dutchmen will begin two new rivalries and renew another that ended in 1959. The biggest attraction on the 1971 schedule promises to be the season finale when the Dutchmen host Grand Valley State College of nearby Allendale.

question is whether Hope's advantage in the final weeks of the season will be worth savoring. The Dutch will be participating in a Holiday Tournament Jan. 1 and 2. The tournament could be more accurately described as an opponent exchange. Hope and Calvin will be playing two doubleheaders against Ohio Dominican and Elmhurst of Illinois, but will not be playing each other. This opponent exchange will set the stage for Hope's first meeting with the Calvin Knights. The real importance of the o p p o n e n t ex-

State at Fullerton captured the individual title and Eastern Michigan grabbed the team crown in the 13th NCAA College Division meet. Covert, finishing some 25 yards ahead of John Cragg, St. John's, Minn., was clocked in 2 5 : 1 3 over the five-mile course at the Chicago Country Club. Defending champion Ron Stonitsch of C. W. Post finished fifth. A remarkable total of 337 runners finished in the grind through winds gusting up t o 35 miles an h o u r in a 38-degree temperature. But due to a mix-up " b e t w e e n here and the NCAA headquarters," the Hope team was not registered for the meet and was not allowed to run, according t o Claxton. "We're still in the dark about it. All we know is that it was their fault," he added. "We took a long ride for nothing."

Grand Valley will be competing at the varsity level for the first time in 1971. The game most likely will be the last between the two colleges, too. Hope has agreed to meet Grand Valley to fill its nine game schedule, but with the understanding that there are no other vacancies on the Dutch schedule until the 1976 season. By that time it is unlikely that either team would agree to be football opponents, since Grand Valley projects an enrollment of 6,000 students by then while Hope's is not anticipated to surpass 2,500. Hope's other new o p p o n e n t will be Georgetown, Ky., a four year Baptist College with an enrollment of 1,500 men and women. The Dutchmen will be meeting Wabash, Ind., for the first time since 1959 when Hope posted a 19-13 victory. In the ordy other meeting Wabash defeated Hope 41-7 during the 1956 campaign. Hope will play three home Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association games including an Oct. 23 homecoming meeting with Kalamazoo. Schedule: September 18 - Franklin, Ind. September 25 - Wabash, Ind. October 2 - at Georgetown, Ky. October 9 - Albion October 16 - at Olivet October 23 - Kalamazoo October 30 - at Alma November 6 - Adrian November 13 - Grand Valley State
