At Issue: Minorities at Hope An I n t e r v i e w w i t h Al Gonzales Asst. Director of M u l t i c u l t u r a l Life by Theresa McPherson News Editor The lack of diversity within the Hope College community has ong been an issue of debate. Does Hope need more minority students and faculty? Is it really fair to seek minority enrollment simply because it will be good for he College? Does the College practice, however quietly, a )olicy of i n s t i t u t i o n a l i z e d racism? Alfredo Gonzales, now occupying the new Assistant Dean for Multi-Cultural Life position, has a challenge for the Hope community, and it is one which should not be taken lightly. The goal of Gonzales' work is to create an awareness within the ollege community as a whole to become more sensitive to the presence and contribution of the minority groups in our society." The way to achieve this, according to Gonzales, "is to implement four important factors. These include: internal support services for minority students, program development, admissions work, and the establishment of positive, effective, working relationships with minority communities." Internal support services consist of Gonzales being available to minority students. He counsels as well as advocates for the s p e c i a l n e e d s of m i n o r i t y students. As with many programs dedicated to "special leeds," many people ask why minority students need an advocate. Many assert that services are already available through the Student Development Offices. Gonzales responds by saying, "In some cases, not all, minority students need someone available hat they feel comfortable with." Consider, for example, the situaion of a white Dutch, Reformed Dhurch student attending a Black Baptist college. That stu-

dent might find it extremely important to have someone of similar experience on the faculty or staff. Everyone needs a supp o r t s y s t e m ; s o m e o n e or something with which they can connect. P r o g r a m d e v e l o p m e n t is essential, according to Gonzales. "Films, lectures, and other information about and by minority m e m b e r s will give a new perspective to minority and majority students alike," he explained.

by Theresa McPherson News Editor Dar Topp, Director of the Career Center and Co-Director of S e r v i c e s to H a n d i c a p p e d Students, will be bidding the College good-bye this Thursday. Topp has accepted the position of Director of Disabled Student Services at the University of Michigan. She will begin her new position December 3,1986. What prompted Topp to accept the U. of M. position? "I intend to bring the University of Michigan into the twentieth century. The U. of M. has many architectural and attitudinal barriers regarding disabled students. The school encourages independence, which in many ways is good, but professors need to realize when it comes to the disabled student, many places are not accessible. If disabled students are treated 'equally,' they will end up being discriminated against. These students have differences and need special help," she explained.

"I intend to bring U-AA into the 20th Century."

This is "Multicultural Y e a r " at Hope College. The year started with a distinguished speaker, Dr. Byrd (superintendent of the Chicago Public Schools) who received an honorary Doctorate of Human Letters during Convocation. Among other events planned for the year. Dr. Skinner, a black evangalist, has already been to campus; Dr. Adams, from the University of Utah, spoke on the integration of the multicultural perspective in the college sett i n g l e Hollis Sisters, a black, gospel group, will be on campus

The University of Michigan has been seeking Topp since last year to join their staff. Why did she remain at Hope? "I felt Hope really needed some more direction in offering services for the handicapped students. I feel comfortable about going now because t h e r e a r e two individuals who are capable of running the show," she stated. Topp has advised the Administration to emply both Louise Schumaker and Susan Blair during the interim while a national search is conducted and to include them both as candidates.

What will Topp miss most about Hope College? "I will greatly miss the people here. I love the involvement I have been able to have with students. It has been so important to follow students all four years and to be

other when it comes to career promotions and changes. For now, I will be commuting, staying in a dorm room at the University during the week and travelling home on weekends." Don Topp is presently the Pastor of the Good News Community Church in Grand Rapids. He may look for another church or decide to return to graduate study. Until then, Dar will "be around."

DarTopp friends, not just a c a r e e r counselor. I do not believe I will find a more committed and loving staff than Hope's. The support and secretarial statt at Hope is much a part of the College as are the faculty members. Indeed, Hope could sooner do without the faculty than without the s e c r e t a r i a l s t a f f . Hope recognizes this and treats all members of the community with mutual respect and appreciation," she stated.

"The hardest part of moving on is leaving the friends I have m a d e within t h e d i s a b l e d students at Hope. I am very proud to say that the people at Hope were ready to be accepting of people with disabilities, both attitudinally and architecturally. It is my desire to find that little bit of Hope at the University of Michigan," she commented.

Lies and License

Biblical H o m o s e x u a l i t y ?

The controversy over U.S. arms sales to Iran reveals serious shortcomings in Reagan's foreign policy and in the way in which this administration deals with the public as a whole. Simply put, the President and his minions in the National Security Council have lied to our allies, the Congress, and us

To the Editor: The following article is in response to the article in the November 12 issue of the Anchor entitled, "Gay-Lesbian Group Strong at Hope." Specifically, we would like to address the paragraph that says the following about the members of the Hope G a y - L e s b i a n S t u d e n t Union: "The majority of the individuals within the group consider themselves Christians and have attended church services as a group In Grand Rapids occasionally. 'Everybody interprets the scriptures in their own way and thus, this leaves room for the manipulation of the scripture. But I believe there Is no one set thought regarding this Issue,' .says the leader." The paragraph previous to this In the article mentions that there Is much animosity towards and h a r a s s m e n t of h o m o s e x u a l students by the male sect of Hope's campus. We want to say directly that we do not condone such actions. If there Is any animosity on our parts toward homosexual people, it is not in the fact that they are homosexual but in the fact that they justify (In their own minds) homosexuality and declare that they're not sinning. The Bible is far from vague on the subject of homosexuality. In Leviticus chapter 18 verse 22 It says, "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that Is detestable." Also In Romans chapter 1, verses 24-27, It says, "Therefore God gave them over In the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and

While the President was sending George Shultz to praise Great Britain for "standing tough" on Syria and to admonish other European allies for their willingness to deal with terrorists, and while U.S. Attorney Edwin Meese was prosecuting dozens of smugglers of weapons to Iran—calling them "Brokers in Death"—President Reagan was selling arms to Iran. In doing this, the President apparently bypassed the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and even the CIA. Why? One wonders what exactly the administration thought it would achieve. Realistically, selling arms to Iran can hardly be considered to be in the United States' best interest. An Iraniain victory in the Iran-Iraq War would hurt us strategically, and would probably encourage the spread of the religious fundamentalism that brought the Ayatollah to power. Furthermore, the President has argued for years that U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia was imperative, in part because of the threat to the region posed by—you guessed it—Iran. The duplicity never ends. The Administration does not even agree on why they're selling arms to Iran. President Reagan denied making any arms-forhostages deals, saying in a speech on Friday "let there be no doubt that the U.S. does not pay tribute to terrorists." On the other hand Donald Regan, Reagan's Chief-of-Staff said that the President was buoyed into the calamity by his concern for the hostages and their families. "The President is a man of compassion." It seems strange to us that any sudden surge of compassion—even when well-timed for the November elections—could make the President forget what he and his aids have stressed all along: that to bargain with terrorists is to put a price on the head of every American abroad. Beyond the catastrophic effect of undermining U.S. credibility in Europe and the Middle East and encouraging the spread of terrorism, this fiasco illuminates once again the threat posed by the Reagan Administration's contempt for those who would question or even observe their movements. This "when in doubt, lie" policy is being carried out daily by the same NSC men who engineered the misinformation (a lie with pedigree) campaign in Libya and paid forHassenfus' illegal transfer of arms to our freedom fighters on the edge of Nicaragua (by way of Miami Beach).

Donald Regan, defending the President's actions, asked the press, "But I ask you: What is human life worth?" With the possibility of a pre-election hostage return aiding the President in retaining the Senate, it appears the lives of other Americans endangered by this policy were worth little. The unnumbered Iraquis we helped kill were worth even less. And apparently to the President and the NSC, the truth is worth nothing at all.

served created things rather than the Creator— who Is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were Inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed Indecent acts with other men, and received In themselves the due penalty for their perversion." The Bible is quite clear on the subject of homosexuality. You'll notice that the entire verse or verses In Included In each passage and not just a part of them. This leaves no room for so called "manipulation." There are other passages, such as 1 Kings 14:24, Leviticus 20:13, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. These a r e just as concise. The Bible says, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." We a s Christians must not try to justify sin. Sure we're all going to m a k e mistakes, but it's Important to see our sin and try not to continue In It. If we justify sin, we deceive ourselves Into no longer seeing It. This does not make the sin go away. We wish homosexuals could at least see their sin, rather than justify It and continue In It. In closing, we want to restate that it Is clear homosexuality Is wrong, but malicious persecution against homosexuals Is also wrong. The Bible tells, "Love your neighbor as yourself." As a " C h r i s t i a n " community, we have the obligation to love the sinner, but not to love, condone or justify what he does.

Le ft of Center Doing Dialogue By Larry Wagenaar Several days ago I was sitting in my room reading some articles required for a class in Educational Psycology - a class taken in a short lived desire to pursue elementary ed - and a statement jumped off the page at me: 'Like children in school, I was worried by the fear of not being able to live up to my own concept of myself,' (Holt, How Children Learn, 124). It hit especially hard in the wake of a week of frustration. We live in a dichotomy of needing to live up to the reputation that professors have assigned us and ones that we have designed for ourselves. How many of us have struggled against the prejudgement of a professor whose vision of us was parked at a ' B ' o r a ' C ? An experience took place this week that exemplified my own failure to live up to my own expectations. Writing for a religion course on a topic that held less interest than normal for me, the 'proper' approach to researching and a sufficient absorption and distillation took place within my mind of the material at hand. Yet the words as they hit the paper lacked good organization, which became apparent after discussing the content with the reader. I violated my own concept of what I thought I was capable of - not living up to my own image. The image we set for ourselves may be high or low. Several days ago I spoke with someone who had not showed up to a class in a month. When I inquired as to his absence he related that he had gotten a ' C on the midterm - as if the letter somehow was an excuse to terminate learning or

would alone infuse some sort of knowledge. He had a pretty interesting self image. However, people like that hopefully are rare; most of us truly are striving to break the mold, to rise to the top of the class, or some semblance of it. Muddling through in order to get by with the most marginal of work is not the type of person that will most likely show much for his efforts in the long run. Professors preconceptions and our own self image (or lack thereof) can destroy a college career. Taking time to put it in perspective and communicate with those who teach us is important. What I'm getting at is that by and large how we do at Hope is a combination of our actual performance and the evaluation of that performance by a professor. It is something so obvious that it may pass us by as we quest for everything from relationships to Elder exams. Both need attention if success is desired. Maintaining a dialogue a personal one - is all too often overlooked by a great deal of students. Few things at Hope are more important (and one of its great strengths). Keeping in touch will not necessarily change your grade; however, you can get across that you are concerned with what you are learning in his-her e v a l u a t i o n of you. Sometimes it is just as simple as showing up to class. Hope is unique in that we can get to know our professors well and learn in more than just the classroom from them. Since most of them really like to get to know us - why not? It can only help... and it really is worth it.

CONCERNED ? PREGNANCY ? BIRTHCONTROL ?

MOI and Vous Instead of starting right in with my usual crap, I would first like to apologize to Mrs. Van Wylen...I hope I didn't offend you but I was just reporting the facts... Hope you're doing better... Speaking of that, my sources have told me that while Mrs. Van Wylen was in the hospital our dear President learned how to do something new: get his own breakfast and run the dish washer... But his son had to teach him how to do it!!!.... Look for some BIG switches in prime time TV—at least a few shows which I'm sure college students watch are going to get m o v e d the f i r s t week in December... Hill Street Blues will be moving into Crime Story's slot on Tuesdays from 9 to 10 while Crime Story is going to move in behind Miami Vice which will shove L.A. Law into the Hill's slot T h u r s d a y s . Got t h a t ? Good.... Look for the next issue of the inklings this Friday. In it, Dave ("Scott Brown") Lambert gets boring (or was he already?), Jay Hoames doesn't, and last year's editor Todd VerBeek adds his own two cents (or sense) from Scotland.... MUSIC NEWS: Bruce is selling at an incredible clip. It may even p r e m i e r e at n u m b e r 1 on Billboard's album chart... U2 will have a new album out by next February...and look for a tour following... Y'»!i .il! missed Peter Gabriel . .nis pabi Monday... True Stories has yet to hit the west Michigan area...or any place outside of Detroit in the state. Give it time. Reportedly it is doing quite well yet... Can you count the number of Hope students who attended the Daniel Amos concert Sunday on your fingers and toes? Almost... So what does that say? Hope students just don't want to go to real concerts, Hope students aren't interested in Christian music, or what? Should SAC have done this? Will WTHS be able to sponsor their own concert?... Who is this Daniel Amos guy anyway? I heard he isn't even in the band!... And how about that Dance of the Century put on by WTHS, huh?! ? Did anyone besides high school students attend? Does anyone

really care?... Beware: the anchor will be undergoing some changes in the next few weeks as it plays around with different looks and feels. If there's something you like, let the staff know—and if you don't like it, really let the staff know... Along with t h e coming of Whitney as editor-in-supremecommand, there have been a few other changes and shufflings. Check out the staff box if you really need to know... Rumor has it that Joel Tanis, the man behind "Psycho Dentist," is finishing up a new painting which has already gotten the O.K. to be put in Peale. The title?..."Frogs on Strings Can be Fun"... The untold story of the food fight (and attempted food fights in Phelps): Apparently, some time ago, like the nij^ht before Parents' Weekend, a food fight broke out which tras^pH r'helps. People were their clcan.u ^ it un til midnight. The food service people were not happy, rightly so, and the "jello suck" (that tradition of traditions!) almost got canned in retaliation. There have been some other attempts at food wars but the powers that be have been tipped off and have thus prevented them. Dean Beal even went over to the possible proponents of such silliness and asked if he could participate. They didn't think that would be such a good idea... Solution: have the food service sponsor a jello war in the Pine Grove some time...or, better yet, why don't we all wait until we have some snow and then go at it... There is a new music-comic shop which has just opened easily within walking distance of the campus. It's right on the corner of College and Fourteenth. Doesn't have much yet but give it sometime... New Harrison Ford movie out this Friday. Entitled "The Mosquito Coast," it's directed by P e t e r Wier who also did "Witness." In it, Ford takes his family south into the jungle to escape civilization and ends up fighting for their lives... More music news: new stuff is out now (or should be soon) from Paul Young, Debbie Harry, the Pet Shop Boys, and Kate Bush... Look for the Pretenders to tour early in 1987... And Pink Floyd is officially breaking up.,.not that we didn't see it coming....

Can Hope Do More for Minorities ? in J a n u a r y ; and there will be a special s p e a k e r for Martin Luther King's birthday. Why is all this necessary? "Hope represents only one viewpoint so often," said Gonzales. "The world is made up of many cultural and ethnic backgrounds. All should be made aware of the presence and contributions of minorities on a daily basis. The quality of life at Hope would be e n r i c h e d g r e a t l y if t h i s awareness was constant." Gonzales' work with the Ad-

missions Office is anoth integral part of his job. "It is critical that we identify and recruit more minority students. If we recruit only from white, middle class high schools and never go into city public schools, I have to ask, what are we doing?"

In all his work, Gonzales encourages academic departments and student organizations to become involved. "It is our collective responsibility to make Hope College an alternative for minorities whether they be interested students or faculty," he exclaimed. Gonzales, previously Director of Minority Student Affairs,

makes a distinction between the use of minority and multicultural life. "The t e r m 'minority' is rather ambiguous. It categorizes a group numerically. The multicultural aspect is much more positive in its meaning. The

concept broadly includes acknowledging the many different cultures and values of peoples within our country and even our own Holland community. In this way, we obtain diversity through looking at whole individuals, not just having a representative percentage of a numerically smaller group of people," he explained. How has the Hope community perceived Gonzales and hisnew position? "I believe the reality of the situation is sinking in. The top administration has been extremely supportive and sincere about my efforts to increase the m u l t i c u l t u r a l p e r s p e c t i v e at Hope. The real challenge lies not only in making the commitment to increasing the minority facet at the College, but in allocating the r e s o u r c e s n e c e s s a r y to achieve this goal," he stated.

In order to increase minority students, minority faculty must also be increased. The Administration has argued that this is a difficult process, stating that minority professors are in high demand (and would thus need to be wooed with g r e a t e r salary and benefits), not to mention that positions for new professors do not open up very regularly. P a r t of the money raised through the Campaign for Hope is directed at professorial grants, and the salary and benefits professors receive at Hope, though while not incredible, is great enough to compete for top professors. And the reputation of Hope as an outstanding institution and Holland as a desirable place to live also aid in the competition.

But the Administration should On the issue of increasing the look into special incentives for multicultural facet at Hope, the a t t r a c t i n g m i n o r i t y p r o financial aspect seems to be lag- fessors窶馬ot only through salary ging behind the Administration's but through accelerated promotions and other benefits.

At last Thursday's meeting, the committee formally recommended that certain criteria be established to allow students to move off-campus. These criteria included "automatic" approval for seniors and other special cases, a special review committee for special cases (which range from non-traditional students to seniors who missed the d e a d l i n e for t h e i r "automatic" approval), and a new procedure which would allow students to move offcampus in groups. This procedure, as recommended by the committee, has groups of students (or individuals) given priority to move off-campus based on the average number of credits of their group—with a minimum number of credits for someone requesting off-campus approval of 43. The procedure is similar to that of registration, where those who have earned the most credits register first and the rest follow in descending order.

The Administration, from President Van Wylen on down, feels that Hope College is a residential college and thus the campus should be filled—as it always has been in the past. Therefore the basic policy of basing the number of students who are allowed to move off-campus would be based on the number of spaces left on campus. The committee also feels that there should be some sort of special orientation given to those students who wish to move offcampus. This orientation would be r e q u i r e d f o r e v e r y o n e —i n c l u d i n g seniors—who want to move off. At this meeting, information on issues students would have to deal with off-campus would be discussed, preparing students to face possibly bad landlords and other problems which follow along those lines. An off-campus student handbook, showing students their rights and responsibilities as citizens is also proposed.

FACTS IN BRIEF Asian Enrollment Rises, While Black Enrollment Declines • Overall, minority enrollment in higher education increased 6 percent between 1980 and 1984, because of increases in Hispanic and Asian enrollments. During this period Hispanic enrollment increased by 12 percent and Asian/Pacific Islander enrollments increased 34 percent. Both blacks and American Indians/Alaskan Natives experienced declines (3 percent and 1 percent, respectively). • Blacks are losing ground at almost all levels of higher education. Between 1980 and 1984, black undergraduate enrollment declined by 4 percent, while black enrollment at the graduate level fell by 12 percent. • Although black enrollments declined nationally by 3 percent between 1980 and 1984, some states managed to increase black enrollments during that period, including Arizona, Georgia, Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Texas. • During the period between 1980 and 1984, Asian/Pacific Islanders made gains at all levels of higher education. For example, the number of Asian/Pacific Islanders enrolled at the first professional level increased from 6,124 in 1980 to 9,240 in 1984. • During the period between 1980 and 1985, law school enrollments for all minority groups increased significantly. Increases for minority groups include: Asians, 31 percent; Hispanics, 22 percent; American Indians, 12 percent; and blacks, 10 percent. • More than half of all Hispanics enrolled in higher education attended two-year institutions (54 percent). • In 1984, minorities represented 15 percent of all four-year students and 21 percent of all two-year students.

Good News for Michigan Tuition Grants "wfl cr

A State Board of Education resolution commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the Michigan Tuition Grants Program was recently presented to independent (private) college representatives by Mrs. Barbara A. Dumouchelle, the Vice President and an elected member of the State Bqard of Education. The resolution, introduced and sponsored by Mrs. Dumouchelle, was adopted by the State Board of Education in September. Mrs. Dumouchelle formally presented the resolution to Donald W. Maine, Chaireman, and Edward 0 . Blews, J r . , President of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Michigan (AICUM). Maine is the President of Davenport College of Business in Grand Rapids. In presenting the resolution, Mrs. DumocheUe declared, "We a r e very pleased, through this resolution, to recognize the vitally important role of the Michigan Tuition Grant P r o g r a m in help-

ing thousands of students of modest means to attend the independent college of their choice. This is indeed an historical occasion. More than 125,000 students have received assistance through this program since its inception twenty years ago." Mrs. Dumouchelle continued, "As a graduate of a Michigan independent college myself, I can testify first-hand to the excellent education, special missions and values, and personalized attention provided by our Independent colleges. And they do this at a net savings to the taxpayers. Certainly these Independent colleges are a vital part of our pluralistic higher education system which serves the people of Michigan so well. This State Board of Education resolution recognize? that fact.

The Desperate Dream Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band 1975-1985 by Dan Stid There Is an idlosyncrasyfound in every Bruce Springsteen fan that causes them to speak of his concerts in tones that are almost religious. Paying particular attention to a p e r f o r m a n c e ' s historical and geographical setting, they will say something like, "I was at South Bend in '78," and expect that anyone would know the significance of that specific pilgrimage. When other veterans of Springsteen shows hear such a proclamation, they simply grin and nod their heads, for they also remember stumbling out of a concert hall in the small hours of the morning, drenched with a slick sweat and excitedly searching for words capable of describing what they had just witnessed. The uninitiated who have difficulty understanding this mystical appreciation would do well to listen to the just released Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Live: 1975-85. After three and a half hours of being grabbed by the lapels and slammed up against the wall by the 40 song, five record set, they will no doubt begin to understand the glazed and distant look that comes over people as they describe what is often one of the monumental experiences of their lives. Some would call it a sad commentary on America that such reverence and esteem a r e accorded to the performances of an unrepentant greaser from New J e r s e y , especially one who spends a great deal of time singing about cars and girls. Maybe. But then again, perhaps there is something to be said for loyalty to a m a n whose integrity, honor, and compassion have emerged intact after the acquisition of fame, fortune, and the love of a beautiful woman; aud whose ability to capture both the despair and hope that are inherent in the American dream is without parallel. Live 1975-85 certainly justifies such loyalty — the total effect of the collection is stunning. Containing songs from each of his seven albums as well as several previously unreleased efforts, it incorporates the diverse themes and textures that Springsteen has for so long brought to his music. It is all here: the fear and resolve, the b i t t e r n e s s and sincerity, with each emotion persistently probing the visions we have of ourselves, our families, our communities, and our nation. Springsteen has always focused on these visions, particularly when they become empty or desperate. As he himself once put It: "That's one of the most dangerous things, I think — Isolation: what happens to people

when they're alienated from their friends and community and g o v e r n m e n t and t h e i r job. Because those are the things that keep you sane, that give meaning to life in some fashion." In the haunting version of "Johnny 99" that appears on Live 1975-85, this isolation manifests itself in violence. A laid-off auto worker, burdened with "debts no honest m a n can pay," commits a drunken murder. As the man is sentenced to 99 years in prison, he rages "Your honor I do believe I'd be better off dead- So if you can take a man's life for the thoughts that's in his head... " The dead silent audience f r a m e s the stark effect of Springsteen's harmonica and acoustic guitar. "Seeds," a heretofore unrecorded song that Springsteen began performing live on his last tour, evokes similar emotions as it traces the hopeless migration of a family from the rust belt to the oil fields of Texas, but there the end result is simply a fierce bitterness. The search for work quickly sours, and the family ends up sleeping in the parking lot of a lumber yard, the children restless in the back seat with hacking coughs. Still there is no sanctuary: a night stick rapping on the windshield wakes them, and they a r e told to move along, "Seeds blowin' up the highway in the south wind." In this song Springsteen asks the question that so much of his work tries to answer: 4 'How many times can you get up after you've been hit?"

'It isallhereithefearand resolve/he bitterness and sincerity, with each emotion persistently probing the visions we have of ourselves, our families, our communities, and our nations." Also striking in its treatment of the dark underside of American life is the live rendition of "Racing in the Street." Chronicling the meager nobility of a quickly aging man who lives for drag r a c i n g , it p r e s e n t s i m a g e s straight out of a Sam Shepard play. The jaded romantic met a girl on the circuit a few years ago, but now " s h e just stares off alone Into the night- with the eyes of one who hates for just being born." Plaintively declaring that later that night he and his

companion are "going to ride to the sea- and wash these sins off of our hands," the man struggles to convince himself of the worth of making stands anymore, however modest they might be. While Springsteen devotes much of the album to presenting this bleak, disturbing perspective, he follows a pettern similar to that of his concert performances by shifting his focus to aspirations that are still intact, or at least salvageable. The protagonists have been disappointed, but not embittered, and they still have refuge to which they can go. Or, in the case of the family in "My Hometown," refuge in which they can stay. A town that has endured racial strife and economic hard times can no longer hold out and starts closing down. In a late night conversation a husband and wife decide to resist the urge to lift up their roots and move along with everyone else. The next day, driving through town in the family Buick, the man sets his son on his lap and tells him, as he was told by his father, "Son take a good look around- This is your hometown." The stated importance of family and community in Springsteen's music broadens to incorporate that of the nation as a whole. But it is a patriotism that looks more toward what America could be than to what it is. He introduces Woody Guthrie's "This Land is your L a n d " by saying that "This Is just about one of the most beautiful songs of all t i m e . " His performance of It calls forth moods that a r e both tender and

poignant. This is sentiment utterly devoid of any sense of nationalism: it is a simple love of country that is hard to recognize and appreciate in the age of the "new patriotism." The quiet yet determined affirmations of family, community, and country, while delivering so much strength, need to be girded occasionally, and Springsteen accomplishes this by evoking a passionate resolve. This sense of purpose is found both in the optimistic escapes of his early r e c o r d i n g s a n d in t h e weathered outlooks of recent years. The traditional show opener " T h u n d e r R o a d " s t a r t s the album off with just such a statement. Recorded in 1975, this intriguing version finds Springsteen backed only by the piano of Roy Bittan. He tells the story of a desperately excited Romeo who tries to entice a reluctant coadventurer off her front porch by accounting not only the worlds that await them but also his own sincerity: "Roy Orbison singing for the lonely- Hey that's me and I want you only." If only she will believe in him and his dreams, they can go anywhere. When his promises fail to convince her, he delivers a soft ultimatum, telling her, " I t ' s a town full of losersand I'm pullin' out of here to win," with only the Quixotic courage of his youth allowing him to think that he can. ^ S p r i n g s t e e n ' s performance of Badlands" delivers a more somber depiction of the necessity of faith. A m a n is suddenly confronted by the wretchedness of his own existence. Unlike the

"His alternatives are clear; believe in something and make a stand or compromise ardmake a deal." character in "Thunder Road," he has been battered by too many of life's s t o r m s to believe he can outmaneuver them. His alternatives a r e clear: believe in something and m a k e a stand or compromise and cut a deal. He chooses to side with "the ones who had a notion, a notion deep inside- that it ain't no sin to be glad you're alive." The conviction in Springsteen's tone as he sings implies that he is well aware of the courage needed to make such a decision — and has had to m a k e such choices before. Springsteen's willingness to address the fears and hopes of his audience, to admit that he is losing and finding the same dreams, distinguishes him from virtually every p e r f o r m e r in music today. In the lyric booklet that accompanies the album, Springsteen writes a letter of thanks and concludes it by sayjfJS th6 E Street Band that They're all about the best bunch of people you can have at your side when y o u ' r e goln' on a long drive." Live 1975-85 reaffirms that Bruce Springsteen feels the s a m e about the rest of us as well.


DA Really Neat by David Lambert Imagine doing the m a m b o around the Holland Theater. Imagine doing the m a m b o around the Holland Theater with about two hundred other people to D a n i e l A m o s ' s s o n g "Neverland Ballroom." If you can imagine this, you might be going insane, or you might have been at the Daniel Amos concert this past Sunday. Opening for Daniel Amos was a band called the Choir. The Choir is a decent band, but it's a band in the "Churchboy turned fake counterculture punk trying to sound like U2 and the A l a r m " category. They played with precision not unlike that of assembly line workers assembling songs: they were professional but they didn't look very interested. In any case, they got the audience's blood pumping, which is what opening bands a r e for.

Comparing Daniel Amos to The Choir was interesting. While The Choir wants to sound like The Alarm, U2, and other progressive titans, Daniel Amos carves out a legitimate place with the big boys. In fact, I'd be hard pressed to decide whether I liked The Alarm or Daniel Amos in concert better. Daniel Amos wins any visual contest hands down. Three video monitors provided video for most of their songs. This live video was s o m e t i m e s a n n o y i n g because of the quality of both the videos and the performance. If you w a t c h e d the performance, you might miss the mob scenes that accompanied the song "Mall All Over the World," or the tiny woman attempting to get a towel in "Incredible Shrinking Man." If you watched the videos, you missed four guys having more fun than h u m a n s should be allowed to have. In the end though, the video added immeasurably to the concert, as video images can portray what words can only imply. The videos were creative and sometimes hilarious. One of the best examples of Daniel Amos's video creativity was a f t e r they left the stage before their encore. Everybody knows what happens now. T h e a u d i e n c e s t a r t s screaming something that eventually turns into the bands name, chanted rythmically. Somebody in the band was astute enough to time this effect. As soon as the

band left the stage,the video screen showed film of a crowd screaming and waving their arms. About the time the chant started, "DA" began to flash slowly on the screen. It was a really fantastic moment. As for the music itself, it led me to rethink feelings about Daniel Amos. Daniel Amos on disc is a bit odd. Listening to a lot of recorded Daniel Amos at one time is sort of like eating too much ice cream. The first dip or two is great, but if you ingest too much, you'll start feeling bloated and a little sick. Ingesting too much live Daniel Amos is impossible. With the oddities to be found on their discs gone, the overall sound was comparable to any top progressive n a m e imaginable. Songs like "William Blake," which on disc is an exercise in recording instruments backwards, became supple and danceable in concert. The audience responded to the streamlined Daniel Amos sound, hopping, waving, and clapping themselves to exhaustion Finally, Daniel Amos had stage prpsence in abundance.

The Gral Brothers will be performing at Hope College on Wednesday, November 19th. The performance will begin at 9 p.m. in the Pit of the Kletz.

Feature

English Pilgrimage by Christie Phillips Staff Columnist "We should not cease from exploration And at the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time." —T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding The soul in search of itself, the mind opened for discovery, then peace and contentment when we experience deep self understanding "knowing the place for the first time." This is the essence of true pilgrimmage. According to Dr. Charles Huttar, professor of English and coordinating director of Hope's new May term " P i l g r i m m a g e , " this attitude will play the leading role in the introspective trip throughout England and the Netherlands. "The idea stemmed from my involvement in an autobiography class I was teaching back in 1979—it gave students a chance to look at the meaning and purpose in their lives. With Pilgrimmage a student will be able to do this and yet experience so much more at the s a m e time, which will hopefully only add to their

feelings of self-discovery," he stated. The trip will be structured around 17 days in both England and the Netherlands, but before the trip students are required to hand in a paper identifying a goal for their personal pilgrimmage. During the trip students must keep a journal in which day-today learning and reflections should be recorded. Visits in England will include such religious and l i t e r a r y s h r i n e s as S a l i s b u r y , Stonehenge, Canterbury, Oxford, and Stratford-on-Avon. As of now, a visit to the protestant relgious community of Little Gidding is also planned. The community is a revival of a small 17th century introspective society whose inhabitants continue to work for world peace and justice. According to Huttar, people live and work soley within the community, staying amazingly aware of the world around them. They have much to relate about their own soul searching pilgrimmages to visitors. G r o u p t r a v e l in t h e Netherlands will include visits to Amersterdam, Delft, and the Hague. Group learning experiences will be provided such as home stays, walking tours in London, attendance at plays, and an in-

During the spring semester there will be three to four information and work sessions (dates to be announced) dealing with travel, planning of individual itineraries, and general background on the pilgrim concept. The trip fee has been estimated by Huttar at $2,000. This figure does not include individual travel costs.

troduction to European educational systems through visits to the universities in Oxford and Amsterdam. The rest of the trip consists of five days spent by each student on individual itineraries planned by the student and Huttar. During this time students are expected to go on an individual pilgrimmage to such meaningful places a s the home of their ancestors,or the home of a great historic figure who belongs to t h e i r r e l i g i o u s or c u l t u r a l heritage a s they identify it. To help students understand this concept, Huttar explained the spiritual aspect in this way: "So long as a person is not fully at home, the journey invites. So long as a piece of one's own identity r e m a i n s to be captured and fit into the puzzle of self discovery, Pilgrimmage is a possiblity."

W e live in a society that emphasizes enjoyment of nearly everything w e d o . One exception, however, appears to be pregnancy. While problems and inconvenience are popularly identified with pregnancy, one rarely hears of the joys and satisfactions that can be found as well. For expectant mothers, one delight is to discover how their child is developing within their body. Some are surprised to learn that long before they can detect the new life stirring within them, the child is already completely formed: all organ systems are functioning; and is actively engaged in the exercise of his or her muscles, joints and limbs, .W W* W* so necessary for their growth and development. By 25 days the heart starts beating. By 30 days the child has an Vi * unmistakable human brain, eyes, ears, mouth, kidneys, liver and umbilical cord pumping its own blood. By 45 days brain waves c a n be % ' 2* detected and the child's skeleton is complete, in cartilage not bone, and ' buds of milk teeth appear. By 63 days he will grasp an object placed in his palm and can make a fist. The baby moves with an easy grace in his buoyant world, and his position in the womb is dependent on what is most comfortable for him. He is responsive to touch and cold and sound and light. He drinks his amniotic fluid, more if it is sweetened and less if it is given a sour taste. He gets hiccups and sucks his thumb. He wakes and sleeps, gets bored sometimes and can be taught to be alerted for something new. Even the child's personality is well under way and will be carried into

Hope Football in Playoffs C o u r t e s y of t h e H o l l a n d Se n t in e l Hope College has not only been awarded an NCAA Division III football playoff bid. ; The Flying Dutchmen also have been selected to host a first round game Saturday against three-time defending national champion Augustana of Rock Island. 111. The contest will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Holland Municipal Stadium. Reserved seat tickets will cost $6, general admission $5 and Hope students $3. Prices are stipulated by the NCAA so no regular

season passes will be honored for the game. Tickets will go on sale at the Dow Center Thursday and Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. "I'm happy for my players and coaches and the community that we live in," said Hope coach Ray Smith. " I ' m especially pleased to play the g a m e in front of the home folks." The Vikings possess the nation's longest unbeaten streak at 46 games. This season they are 8-0-1, having tied Elmhurst, 111. 0-0 in their season opener. "They run out of a wing-T offense," Smith said. "They're very strong, especially defensi-

vely against the rush." Augustana's defense is ranked No. 1 among the nation's 206 Division III schools. "They're probably one of best teams we've played in a number of y e a r s , " said Smith. Last season, the Vikings beat Albion of the MIAA 26-10 and in 1983 they edged Adrian 22-21. Both of those first round games were played in Rock Island, 111. The only other time an MIAA school has reached post-season play w a s in 1977, when Albion lost to Minnesota-Morris in the first round, 13-10. So this is the first time an MIAA school has hosted an NCAA football playoff game.

Hope director of college relations Tom Renner felt the Flying Dutchmen secured the home site because they submitted a better proposed budget. The school's history of attendance in NCAA basketball t o u r n a m e n t s it hosted in 1982 and 1983 also may have helped. The Flying Dutchmen were selected to the tournament ahead of Denison University of Ohio (91) because t h a t team lost to DePauw 20-0 while Hope defeated DePauw 21-13. Members of the selection committee were Tom Mont, athletic director at D e P a u w ; Larry Kindbom, football coach at Kenyon, Ohio; Frank Joranko, AD at Al-

bion College; David Mauer, AD at Wittenberg, Ohio; and J.R. Bishop, football coach at Wheaton. 111. If Hope wins Saturday, it would f a c e the winner of the DaytonMount Union, Ohio g a m e on Saturday, Nov. 29. The winner of that contest would face the West Regional champion, which could be Central College of Pella, Iowa — a sister school of Hope's in the Reformed Church in America. Incidentally, Central president Ken Weller is a f o r m e r assistant football coach at Hope and Central .coach Ron Schipper is a Hope graduate.

Dutchmen to Swim for 2nd Title Coming off their most successful season ever, the Hope College men's swimming team launches its 1986-87 campaign Saturday, November 22 with a non-league dual meet at Wheaton College The Flying Dutchmen this season will be defending their MIAA crown while seeking to improve their standing among NCAA Division III teams.

Last y e a r he was third in the nation in the 50 yard freestyle and fourth in both the 100-yard and 200-yard freestyle. Peel holds the MIAA record in all three of those reces and during last y e a r ' s conference championship meet he received the gold medal in five events.

Last year coach John Patnott's Dutchmen dethroned perennial league power Kalamazoo CoUege with a team that included only one senior. Nine school records were broken a s Hope went undefeated in MIAA dual meets, ended Kalamazoo's 14-year hold on the league title by winning the conference meet, and finished 117th in the nation.

Other returning veterans include all-MIAA juniors Kirt Van Overen and Dirk Van Putten. Senior Marcel Sales was a member of the Hope 800-yard freestyle relay team that qualified for the national meet last year.
