News New proposal restricts off-campus housing by Carrie Maples news editor Student Development is cur rently in the process of working out a qew off-campus housing policy to be put before the Residence Life Committee This policy would m a k e it more difficult for students to recieve permission to live off-campus. The changes this policy would make include an increase in the number of credit hours required, an individual evaluation of each person (as opposed to each person being evaluated as part of a group where pooled hours could m a k e permission possible for someone without enough hours), and a consideration of each person's behavior record before permission was granted. In explaining why this policy is in the works. Bruce Johnston. A s s i s t a n t D e a n for S t u d e n t D e v e l o p m e n t , said. 'Philosophically, I really believe in a residential c a m p u s . " He went on to say that a small increase in housing space has been c r e a t e d by the p u r c h a s e of houses for m o r e cottage space

Johnston also said a lot o! the new housing plans depend on whether or not the college succeeds in its a t t e m p t s to close lOih Street This would c r e a t e the needed space for the construction of new dorms.

" T h e best thing students can do is let their opinions be h e a r d . " E d w a r d Hansen, a faculty member of the Residence Life Committee, refused to give his personal opinion of the policy because it is still under consideration. He did say, however, that if passed the policy wouldn't affect students next s e m e s t e r Hansen also said, 4 i do think that off-campus experiences can be valuable."

" T h a t ' s what d r a w s people U Hope You have the advantages vJ a Christian college without the disadvantages of inappropriate, strict rules ' Both Good and Weber believe such a policy would only cause more problems with alcohol in dorms. Without the off-campus parties students, would drink in the d o r m s and that would place unfair responsibilities on the Resident Assistants There is presently some confu sion among committee m e m b e r s as to how the policy would work its way through channels to be approved " I t ' s up to the Campus Life B o a r d , " said Johnston explaining that the situation is vague a s to how a decision will be reached. It is, he said, an administrative decision because it would h a v e a financial impact on the college. An open Residential Life Committee meeting will be held tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. in the Student D e v e l o p m e n t Office. Students with concerns should attend or speak with their Student Congress representative.

Commitee proposes Kletz renovations by P a m Lundberg staff writer Students at Hope, along with some administrators, have suggested that the College needs a student union. The Kletz and the Hope-Geneva Bookstore a r e now being considered a s possible locations for a new and improved student gathering place. This proposal c a m e about when s t u d e n t s f r o m various organizations saw a need to make changes. "Hope needs a place that is m o r e studentoriented, m o r e 'union'," Richard Frost, Dean of Students, said. These students then spoke with the administration and began compUing a list of ideas for improvement. These m a j o r changes depend mostly on what students want and on what funds a r e available. As of now, this proposal is in the brainstorming stage. Nothing has been finalized, but some options include; new and m o r e comfortable furniture, new artwork, m o r e use of colorful

Student Congress, the Social Activities Committee (SAC) and various other students have contributed to the proposal, a s well a s m e m b e r s of H o p e ' s administration. Ideas also c a m e from other student unions at various universities and f r o m magazines that specialize in this area. The funding problem for the p r o p o s a l h a s not y e t b e e n discussed at length. One thought is to solicit donations f r o m Hope

alumni and friends. The Kletz can be remodeled only when all ideas have been evaluated and when funding is in place. The time needed to complete the p r o j e c t , a f t e r the preliminaries a r e taken c a r e of, will depend on the extent of the changes to be m a d e . While i m p r o v e m e n t s to be m a d e in the Kletz a r e still in the idea stage only, the u l t i m a t e goal is to remodel the Kletz and bookstore a r e a s to c r e a t e a "student union" where Hope students can gather to have fnn, to dance, to play pool, to ><itch television and just to sil in comfortable chairs.

(CPS) - Dartmouth College in New H a m p s h i r e on Nov. 13 became the first campus this school y e a r to announce it would completely stop investing in companies that do business in segregationist South Africa. Scores of other campuses have "divested" themselves of stocks in such f i r m s in recent years. In announcing its decision, D a r t m o u t h ' s Board of Trustees s a i d t h e i r r e m a i n i n g investments, while accounting for only two percent of the school's endowment value, have " g r e a t symbolic meaning" that frustrated the school's efforts to achieve s o m e educational goals. " I ' m speechless," said sophmore Heetan Kalan, who heads the International Student Association a t Dartmouth. " I t ' s a g r e a t victory ." Dartmouth students have been agitating for total divestment for years, and inadvertantly provided one of the enduring symbols of the a n t i - a p a r t h e i d m o v e m e n t that swept American c a m p u s e s from 1985 through 1987, when m a n y schools a g r e e d to divest. In November 1985. Dartmouth students w e r e a m o n g the first to build anti-apartheid " s h a n t i e s " to symbolize the poverty of the black citizens in South Africa. T h e f o l l o w i n g J a n u a r y , 12 student;, including nine, staff m e m b e r s of the conservative

Dartmouth Review newspaper, w r e c k e d t h e s h a n t i e s with s l e d g e h a m m e r s , glibly explaining they were trying to "beautify the G r e e n " where the shanties had stood. The incident not only helped popularize the shanty as a protest symbol, but also began to turn college officials toward seriously c o n s i d e r i n g divestment, s o m e observers say. Schools as diverse a s Hamline. Drew, Georgetown and Southern Illinois universities. Smith and Bowdoin colleges and most large state universities have divested since then. At the s a m e time, D a r t m o u t h ' s investments in companies doing business in South Africa declined from $63 million, or 15 percent of its endowment in 1985, to $11 4 million, or less than two percent, said college spokesperson Alex Huppe. "This has been an ongoing, evolutionary p r o c e s s , " Huppe said of the trustees' decision to sell off the rest of their South African holdings. Now s t u d e n t s a t s e v e r a l schools, including the College of Wooster in Ohio, the University of Alabama and Oberlin College a r e pressing their administrations to divest, reported Richard Knight of the Africa Fund, a New York-based anti-apartheid group.

Strategic planning forum to discuss student reactions to committee report by Beth Pechta co-editor The administration of Hope College has agreed to a student hearing on the Strategic Planning Report "Hope in the F u t u r e , " which was released just before Thanksgiving break. The hearing will take place Thursday, Dec. 7, at 8 p.m. in the Winants A u d i t o r i u m , G r a v e s Hall. Hope College President John Jacobson and Strategic Planning Director Ken Gibson will be on hand to explain the report, answer questions and field any concerns. Gibson, in a telephone interview, stated that the theme of the "Hope in the F u t u r e " report is that "we want the college to be stronger; we want to be m o r e

competent and be recognized for it." The main Strategic Planning Committee is now looking over the 12 committee reports which made up "Hope in the F u t u r e " to decide which ones to implement. Gibson noted that some proposals which were "so obviously good" m a y be instituted a s early as next semester. However, for the proposals which a r e supported, most changes would probably not take place until the fall of 1990, according to Gibson. Gibson did caution that "this is not a start or stop type of process." "We want to know where you (the students) s t a n d , " said Gibson, noting that student ideas would be taken back to the Steering Committee. He could not.

however, promise that student input regarding specific recommendations in the "Hope in the F u t u r e " report would have any effect on the process of approval or disapproval. In a letter to all student organizations, J o n a th a n Hoffman, president of Student Congress, urged student attendance at the hearing. "The paramount issue is the students and the quality of student l i f e , " he stated. " L e t us not pass up this opportunity to give the President input." Hoffman also encouraged "all students who a r e remotely interested in the future of Hope" to obtain a copy of the report from the Student Development Office or the Van Wylen Library and to examine its contents.

Student Congress wraps up busy semester and prepares for spring by Kristin Michel staff writer The Hope Student Congress is one of the college's m o r e active organizations. This fall has been no exception. It has been involved with issues a s far-reaching a s those addressed by the Strategic Planning Board and as immediate as putting a vending machine in Scott Hall. Concerning the Congress's activity this fall. Brad Votava, vice president of the organization commented, " I think the Student Congress is as strong a s ever this year - the level of c o m m i t m e n t from our m e m b e r s has been outstanding and there has been a lot of feedback from students on a lot of issues." Some of these issues include efforts to put computers in Dykstra Hall and allocate m o r e phone lines for long-distance calls. Another important issue addressed this fall by the Congress has been the planning for a m o r e student-oriented student union to be created by transforming the Kletz and possibly some other a r e a s of the DeWitt Center. Also, the Congress, seeing that no c a m p u s organization had volunteered, offered to host the Nykerk dance. The money raised from this dance -- about $106 h a s b e e n d o n a t e d to t h e Bethlehem fund. One of the m o r e recent issues the Congress has been involved with is a proposal to ban empty alcohol containers on campus. This issue is handled by the Campus Life Board. There a r e four Student Congress representatives on this board. The other sue m e m b e r s a r e faculty and administrators. At the meeting •

during which the vote for this proposal occured, one student r e p r e s e n t a t i v e and one nonstudent m e m b e r was absent. All three of the student representatives present voted against the proposal. These three votes made up the only opposition to the proposal. The Student Congress is going to ask the board for a reconsideration of this proposal. A significant difference between this y e a r ' s Congress and the previous ones is that due to the raise in the student activities fee, the Congress had money left over a f t e r allocating funds to student organizations. Over the years, however. Student Congress has incurred a debt close to

fund the proposed changes for the Kletz. Short-term plans may involve bringing to c a m p u s a big n a m e band or speaker. Another accomplishment of the Congress this fall has been to form a Quality of Food Service committee. This committee is m a d e up of m e m b e r s f r o m the Congress a n d the director of food service. Chuck Melchiori. It was formed with the intent of having a formal student communication line with Seiler Food Service in order to advise it of student needs and opinions and to m a k e recommendations. Student Congress believes that constituency input is very important to the successful running of the organization and achieving of student goals. It hopes to

'I am anticipating an equally successful semester this spring as we continue to work for the student body.'

$76,000. The administration has agreed to forgive $10,000 of that debt every y e a r the congress stays within its budget. In an effort to accomplish this, the Congress is establishing a b u d g e t c u s h i o n w h i c h is a minimum amount of money set aside each y e a r to be carried over to the next y e a r or used in special emergencies. The money not used in either this cushion or by organizations goes into what is called a contingency fund. Student Congress plans to use the contingency fund money for something which will benefit the entire student body. Long-term goals-include helping t h e college

facilitate constituency input by keeping the student body well informed of issues being address by the congress and c a m p u s boards. One way it does this currently is with a weekly radio show a t 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights. This show ran for the first time this semester. Next semester the organization plans to submit t h e minutes of its weekly meetings to the anchor. Looking back a t this past semester a n d ahead to the coming one, Votava said, ( i a m anticipating a n 'equally successful s e m ^ t e r this spring a s we continue to work for the student body."

Study finds less disagreement in RCA ( H O P E ) - Clergy and lay m e m b e r s of mainline P r o t e s t a n t churches a p p e a r to h a v e fewer differences of opinion than they did in the late 1960s, accoring to a recent s t u d y by sociologists Donald A Luidens and Roger J. Nemeth of Hope College. In a study of the m e m b e r s of the Reformed Church in America ( R C A ) p u b l i s h e d in t h e December issue of " T h e Review of Religious R e s e a r c h , " the two sociologists found that pastors seemed to be m o r e conservative than parishioners on m a t t e r s of traditional theology, while lay m e m b e r s were m o r e conservative on political issues. "One of the reasons often cited for conflict in the mainline churches during the late 1960s and early 1970s was that the clergy tended to be m o r e liberal on both theological and political issues," Luidens said. "This prompted many to become politically and socially mvolved-especially in anti-Vietnam W a r a n d Civil Rights activities-in a way that angered m a n y lay people." "In a celebrated study on this pattern, P r o f e s s o r J e f f r e y Hadden suggested that t h e r e w a s a gathering s t o r m in the c h u r c h e s ' b e c a u s e of t h i s p r o f o u n d disagreement between ministers and m e m b e r s / ' Luidens said.

Luidens and Nemeth noted that

the c h u r c h e s s e e m e d to bv significantly m o r e subdued in the 19605 that they had been only a decade before. They surveyed clergy and laity in the RCA in order to understand what had happened to the 1960s rift. Their analysis showed that the clergy were m u c h m o r e protective that the lay m e m b e r s if the theological and historical traditions of the church, supporting traditions such a s the c h u r c h ' s creeds and confessions. Conversely, the clergy w e r e m o r e liberal than RCA lay m e m b e r s on social and political issues such as defense spending, welfare prog r a m s . the death penalty and p e r m i t t i n g p r a y e r in public schools On a seven point scale, with 4, 1" being " f a r l e f t " and 4 7 " being " f a r r i g h t , " the clergy placed themselves n e a r the mid-point: 4.1. The laity, by contrast, placed themselves m o r e to the right, at 4.5, although neither group w a s for from the midpoint. "In contrast to a single-minded conservatism a m o n g the laity and a single-minded liberalism a m o n g the clergy, we found that there w e r e p a r t i e s ' within both groups that w e r e liberal and cons e r v a t i v e , " N e m e t h said. " S o m e clergy w e r e m o r e liberal ir.

political issues, as were come laity . On the other hand, some

c.ergy w e r e m o r e conservative on both agendas, and they w e r e supported by some of the lay members " Luidens and Nemeth suggest that a "pluralistic patchwork of p e r s p e c t i v e s " is operating in the R e f o n n e d Church in A m e r i c a "With this cross-roughing of their viewpoints, the clergy and laity h a v e found m o r e grounds for a g r e e m e n t than existed in the 1960s and 1970s." Luidens said. "As a consequence, the c h u r c h is not as factionalized a s it was. and stability is more likely." Although their r e s e a r c h does not directly address the question of how the c h a n g e evolved Luidens and Nemeth suggest that one of Hadden's e a r l i e r predictions has come to p a s s "As Hadden speculated, the most liberal clergy seem to h a v e left the c h u r c h , " Nemeth said "They found that they could act m o r e e f f e c t i v e l y upon t h i e r liberal a g e n d a - e s p e c i a l l y a s it related to welfare and cival rights i s s u e s - t h r o u g h s e c u l a r institutions such a s the social service s y s t e m and in politics." Luidens and Nemeth have conducted joint r e s e a r c h into issues of P r o t e s t a n t i s m a n d t h e R e f o r m e d Church in A m e r i c a since 1986. Among their collaborative efforts is a series of articles entitled The RCA To-

Abortion rights ads banned on two Catholic campuses (CPS) - Student n e w s p a p e r s at two R o m a n Catholic c a m p u s e s got into trouble for trying to publish paid a d s promoting abortion rights rallies, a n d officials at a third Catholic school canceled a pro-abortion rights lecture in mid-November. The Catholic Church c o n d e m n s women who h a v e abortions a s sinful. At M a r q u e t t e University in Milwaukee, a n d at Georgetown U n i v e r s i t y a n d t h e Catholic University of A m e r i c a , both in Washington, D C., officials moved to stop c a m p u s discussions about pro-abortion r i g h t s rallies and m a r c h e s held a r o u n d the na tion Nov. 12. The Rev.

At Georgetown, s t u d e n t s refused to publish the Nov. 10 edition of the student n e w s p a p e r , the Hoya, b e c a u s e school officials f o r b a d e t h e m to r u n a n a d for the Washington rally. More seriously, M a r q u e t t e administrators suspended the editor a n d a d v e r t i s i n g director of the M a r q u e t t e T r i b u n e for running a s i m i l a r ad. The a d s w e r e p a r t of a nationw i d e c a m p a i g n in s t u d e n t n e w s p a p e r s to e n c o u r a g e college students to a t t e n t the Nov. 12 prochoice rallies. The Hoya staff submitted the NOW a d to the administration for a p p r o v a l .

"We w e r e told not to print it until we h e a r d f r o m the university, said Timothy Flen, the Hoya's editor in chief. 4 4 We didn't hear f r o m them for several days, and we pressed them. They then said that the ad could not r u n . " "We felt the ad was protected under the university policy of f r e e d o m of expression, and that we had every right to run it," Flen said.

T^e pro-choice ad was clearly in violation of the university standards and university policy.' 'rv '• " ^ t r a t i o n threatened to suspend the p a p e r and remove Flen f r o m office. " H e a r i n g the news, we opted not to f o r c e the university's hand on this, even though it would have been a g r e a t story for the rest of the m e d i a . " That is just what happened at M a r q u e t t e . Editor Greg Myers and ad director Brian Kristofek were suspended f r o m the p a p e r until J a n u a r y for running an ad » at r e a d , " S t a n d up, be counted while you still h a v e the c h a n c e , " which promoted the Nov. 12 rally A non-student business m. - ^ e r who checks the p a p e r ' s a d s w a .

The s t a t e m e n t was e n d o r s e d by the United S tates Student Association a n d the Association of American Colleges.

SUP OI- IHE MIND The Santa Summit { v .




JIM MONNETT One s u m m i t has ended, but a more important one is about to begin. The other big red guy gave m e a call today. He thought that if Gorby could have a summit so could he. So without further agnew, I present the second Santa Claus interview: Awed Me: It's good to talk with you again, Mr. Clau^. Santa: After all these y e a r s we must be on a first n a m e basis? Me: Okay, Santa. What can I do for you? Santa: Well, you see I've got a bit of a problem Me: Sure, but what could we possibly do for you? I don't know that much about toys or reindeer. Santa: Ho Ho Ho! I'm not having any trouble with them. My little guys a r e doing the toys and Rudolph keeps the reindeer in line. Me: Then what's the problem? Did we leave the flue in the chimney closed? Santa: The Grinch tried that one a few y e a r s back. I really bang ed my knees the first few times. I can open them. Though I did

h a v e s o m e t r o u b l e in your chimney now that I think about it. It s e e m s the college cemented the chimney closed. Me: Did that hurt? Santa: Nothing stops m e on Christmas Eve. Me: Yup. Santa: Heh. Heh. I did play a bit of a joke on the administration in return. I put batteries in all their gifts that were m a r k e d 4 l batteries not included." Boy, did that confuse them. Me: So what can we do for you? Santa: Well, it's about some of the wish lists that I got in my letters from Hope College. Me: Who sent you letters? Santa: Y o u ' d be s u r p r i s ed...Some of my requests a r e going to take a little work. Me (Shocked and appalled): You can't deliver? Santa: Settle down, son. I didn't say I couldn't. I jus t need s o m e clarification about three of these requests. You wouldn't want m e to bring the wrong gill, would you? That could maKe some unhappy Hopites 9 lloptrs9

Hopists? Hopepersons? Hoperoffspring? Me: What's the problem? Santa: I have one h e r e signed a "Closet Liberal." She wants a meeting of the Hope Democrats for Christmas? Isn't that an oxymoron? Me: A what? Santa: An oxymoron is when two words a r e used together that mean opposites, like " j u m b o s h r i m p , " " m i l i t a r y intelligence" nnd teacher's s a l a r y . " I didn't kncv Hope had any Democrats? Me: They do. Good people too. Sanla: Are they in hiding? Me: Wouldn't you be? I've seen people physically assaulted in classes for daring to suggest the remote possibility that a prochoice stance could be a Christian response to abortion. Hope's a conservative c a m p u s . Santa: Okay, I'll get on that one. Here's another request that baffled me. Someone n a m e d Homer asked to have the Hope administration stop buying diapers. Is the administration wearing diapers? Me: No, no. I think he is referring to a present administrative slant toward t r e a t i n g the students like children by trying to control too much of the student's lives. Santa: Don't they already control the students' wallets? Me: Some people a r e never satisfied. Santa: Speaking of which, I read your letter. Me: A...a...why don't we talk about this later. Santa: Not only did you ask for something difficult, but you want it on Friday for use during the

Me: My r p o m m a t e b i t Christmas ornament b e e a u s e i t hits him on the head every time he entered the living room. Santa: Well then, I'll have Dancer boogie on down with some Christmas cheer. December should be glorious: not stressful. It should be a time of r e j o i c e with decorations, carols, hymns, presents, egg nog, and Frosty the Snowman. Me: Instead you have papers, tests, analytical chem homework during finals, and finals themselves. It's not a pretty sight. Santa: Worse than riding in a c o n v e r t i b l e s l e i g h in a r t i c weather, sliding down chimneys, opening flues, eating too many cookies and doing .it all in fifteen hours? weekend and next week? Me: I just thought you could have P r a n c e r or one of the other reindeer sprinkle some patience, good h u m o r , and g e n e r a l Christmas cheer before finals. Everyone is tense and grumpy. Some Christmas cheer would ease our stress. Santa: Things getting bad?

W Co-Editors

Letters to the Editor, cont. Student input lacking in committee reports Dear » 'iitor, I would like to takeumoment to expand on the editorial in the November 22 edition of the anchor. I enthusiastically endorse the s t a t e m e n t that the "Hope in the F u t u r e " report is of concern to the students of this institution. And I a g r e e with the fact that the students of Hope should m a k e themselves a w a r e of the recommendations that the various 12 committees have submitted to the Steering Committee of "Hope in the F u t u r e " . There is one item, however, that I would like to clarify. The editorial mentions that student input w a s sorely lacking. Indeed it was, but I must point out that President Jacobson, and the director of Strategic Planning, Ken Gibson, m a d e an effort to get the students of Hope College involved. There was a f o r m a invitation to Student Congress asking for student representation on each of the twelve (12) commit-

•ees. mc Mad tcu iiu» ii.uii , "its respond, but in the end, only four 14) students participated. The students had an opportunity to get involved. But one might ask why we had such poor participation. The answer is poor planning for student involvement. The first meeting was March 16-17, during spring break. The second meeting was May 4, during e x a m week and one day before commencement. The third meeting w a s July 27, and the final meeting was October 5. This schedule was not considerate to students. But that's history, let's look forward. The redommendations have not been acted upon yet. We, the students of this institution, still have a m p l e opportunities to contribute to the c a m paign. Two copies of the report from uie Steering C o m m i t t e e a : * available in Student Develop-

ment. A< P r e s i d e n t , I u r g e all students who a r e remotely interested in the f u t u r e of Hope, and especially all leaders of student organizations to examine this report. In addition, I have arranged for President Jacobson, and the director of Strategic Planning, Ken Gibson, to present to the students of Hope their assessment o f the Strategic Planning process. This will give the students a chance to ask questions and give their input. The meeting will be on T H U R S D A Y , DECEMBER 7, IN WINANTS A U D I T O R I U M IN G R A V E S HALL AT 8:00 P.M. The paramount issue is the students, and the quality of life at Hope. Let's not pass up this opportunity. ouicerely, Jonathan Hoffman President Student Congress

" T h e r e have been no specific incidents within the past y e a r " to prompt the f a c u l t y ' s desire to ban greeks, said Bucknell spokesperson D e a n n a Congileo.

Support of play about homosexuals and AIDS results In arson at Southern Missouri State (CPS) ~ Opening night of a Southwest Missouri State University production of a play about homosexuals and AIDS was m a r r e d by an arson fire that destroyed the home of a vocal supporter of the d r a m a . Brad E v a n s , president of People Acting with Compassion and Tolerance, was attending a candlelight vigil outside the campus t h e a t e r Nov. 15 shortly before the debut of " T h e Normal Heart ' when the fire was reported. Two cats died. Someone had forced open the back door of E v a n ' s single-story house, and spread f l a m m a b l e liquid on the floor of two rooms, investigators said. They believe the fire was related to E v a n ' s involvement in supporting the c a m p u s staging of T h e Normal H e a r t . " a play that chronicles the deadly spread of AIDS (acquired i m m u n e deficiency syndrome) through the gay community. When T h e Normal Heart ' opened in New York in 1985, some gay leaders worried the p l a y , in p o r t r a y i n g s i c k homosexuals, would m a k e them look bad and embolden hetrosexuals to scuttle gays' hard-won


They accused playwright Larry K r a m e r , himself a gay activist, of betraying their cause. When a c a m p u s theater group announced it would stage the work at Southwest Missouri in Springfield in mid-November, however, local heterosexuals charged the play glorified homosexuality.

She accus-

Tensions were so high that SMSU placed s e v e r a l dozen s e c u r ity o f f i c e r s around the theater opening night Nov. 15, and forced p a t r o n s to pass thorough metal detectors and have their bags searched. The tight security, Bradely said, " d e t e r r e d anyone from trying to disrupt the play." As the play's sold-out, eightp e r f o r m a n c e run at SMSU ended, however, the destruction of E v a n s ' home and cats were the only recorded "disruptions." Campus health officials report the play - or at least the heated controversy around it - m a d e more SMSU students aware of AIDS. Awareness " h a s never been close to what it is now," said c a m p u s health center Director Burnie Snodgrass. " T h e r e can't be a single student who doesn't know about AIDS." S n o d g r a s s said the health center had m o r e requests for AIDS information during the four weeks of debate about the play than it had during the preceding 12 months. " T h e a w a r e n e s s we wanted to c r e a t e on this c a m p u s we know was created, " Bradley said.

Citizens Demanding Standards leader Paul Summers called the play 'obscene/a bad use of taxpayers' money and contrary to the moral standards of the Springfield community,which is the center of evangelical Christian groups and activities.

During four weeks of controversy and threats by play opponents, who included state Rep. Jean Dixon and a group called Citizens Demanding Standards, called on SMSU President Marshall to halt the production. Gordon refused, saying the play would help m a k e audience m e m b e r s more a w a r e of AIDS and how it is s p r e a d . Heated rallies and demonstra-

groups and activities. S u m m e r s drew about 1,200 people to a public rally to sing gospel songs and listen to fiery speeches denouncing the production. S u m m e r s ' group first tried to get the production canceled. When that didn't work, it lobbied for a "wholesome" AIDS play. Finally, three days before the play's debut, the group appointed itself watchdog, promising to try

ed them of lying and using s m e a r tactics like those the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy used against his opponents in the early 1950s. "If you don't know about that era of American history, you'd better become acquainted with it fast, because it's coming back and it's coming to your school," she told about 300 people, mostly students, at a school-sponsored forum.

Four conservative student journalists convicted of assault for beating liberals (CPS) - Three University of Massachusette-Amherst conservative student journalists w e r e convicted in late November of assaulting two liberal UMass student reporters who had written an article they didn't like. The conservatives w e r e found guilty of several m i s d e m e a n o r counts of pushing and shoving, but were acquitted of m o r e serious charges they had v i o l a t e d t h e i r v i c t i m s ' civil rights and conspired to c o m m i t a crime. The three a t t a c k e r s all worked for The Minuteman, a conservative c a m p u s paper. Their vict i m s worked for a liberal c a m p u s p a p e r called The L i b e r a t o r , which had published an article in its debut edition last spring headlined " C a m p u s Conservatives Linked To KKK/NeoNazis." Hobb Smith and Ted C h a m b e r s , the article's authors, say Minuteman s t a f f e r s a t t a c k e d them March 7 while they were d i s t r i b u t i n g c o p i e s of t h e i r paper T b liberals said four students had surrounded their c a r as they a p p r o a c h e d a dorm to drop off copies, jumped on the c a r , and t h r e a t e n e d to kill them. On Nov. 15, a Northhampton ( M a s s . ) District court found Minuteman staffers Greg R o t h m a n , Brian Darling and Doug Dratch guilty of misdemeanor assault charges associated with the incident, fining them $100 apiece for each charge. A fourth student, former Minuteman editor Alan Brynjolfsson, was acquitted of all charges. "We were kind of disappointed, but it's a conviction a n y w a y , ' ' C h a m b e r s said. " T h e y ' v e finally been held a c c o u n t a b l e . "

Rothman, who has since g r a d u a t e d and is working at his f a t h e r ' s real e s t a t e firm in Harrisburg. Pa., said he was " d e l i g h t e d " by the t r i a l ' s outcome, but declined to c o m m e n t further. Much like other avowedly conservative papers that have sprungup on s o m e 30 c a m p u s e s with financial help f r o m the Washington, D.C.-based Institute for Educational Affairs, The Minuteman has e a r n e d a reputation f o r o u t r a g e o u s n e s s by publishing f e a t u r e s that include insults to broad categories of students. One issue included a "Diversity Word F i n d " puzzle, which included the w o r d s "homo," "fag." "dead homo." and " d e v i a n t . " Smith and C h a m b e r s decided to run the story when, upon moving their fledgling n e w s p a p e r into c a m p u s offices f o r m e r l y occupied by The M i n u t e m a n , the d i s c o v e r e d a c o p y of T h e M i n u t e m a n ' s mailing list.

Choirs open Christmas season with Vespers: by Brian Paige staff writer From the first haunting strains of music that filled Dimnent Memorial Chapel last Saturday and Sunday, to the magnificent carol sing-along, the 1989 Hope College Christmas Vespers again ushered in the beginning of the holiday season in Holland. Performing four concerts to sell-out crowds, t h e Chapel Choir. College Chorus, Symphonette. Brass and Trumpet Ensembles, as well as the Brass and Woodwind Quintets playixl almost two hours of music with s c r i p t u r e and religious nar-

ratives interspersed, centralut-d around the Advent theme Opening the concert was the Brass Quintet with a f a n f a r e , and the Symphonette playing an interpretation of three carols as the candles were lit. The procession of the choirs followed, as the torchbearers, banner b e a r e r and cross bearer took their places at the front of the chapel. Following the invocation, the choirs began the concert with a fifteenth century G e r m a n carol, and continued with traditional and nontraditional Christmas music including works by Gustav Hoist, Elizabeth Poston. William Mathias and George F. Handel.


Some of the highlighU, of the evening occurred when the congregation was invited to join the choirs in singing the traditional carols, "The First Noel ' and "O Come All Ye F a i t h f u l , " as well as when the combined voices of the Chapel Choir and College Chorus sang " F o r Unto Us a Child is Born" from G.F. Handel's "Messiah" for their finale.

'Prancer' is a holiday must-see by Reba O'Shesky staff writer If you a r e looking for a movie that totally relaxes you and doesn't require you to think or analyze, then " P r a n c e r " is for you There is a catch though, you still have to believe in Santa Claus. At least a little bit. The main character, Jessica Riggs, played by Rebecca Harrell, is a girl we all knew in elementary school. She's the one who always sang at the top of her lungs, the girl we all thought was spacy, the girl who in the third grade still truly believed in Santa Claus.

Jessica finds a reindeer in the woods and believes it's P r a n c e r . It disappears. Later it shows up in her barn and it's been shot. She hides it and nurses it back to health. While doing this she touches the lives of the entire town. Her a c t i o n s inspire everyone from Mrs. M c F a r l a i n , the town recluse, played by Cloris Leachman. to the editor of the town paper, who prints the polaroid and the letter she gave to Santa in the mall to p a s s on to the real Santa. In turn, the entire town restores her faith when it seems she has stopped believing. The film did have its problems though. At times it seemed dis-

He m a d e you want to give him a well-deserved pinch. r his movie was heart-warming without being overly sappy. It's a defin i te Christmas must-see.

Women's basketball works as a team by Greta J. Kennedy staff writer


BILL MEENGS Here it is, my last sports column of 1989. Actually, it will most likely be my last sports column for the anchor. But before anyone starts to celebrate too much, just let me say that I will be back next semester. I have moved up to bigger and better things and will no longer have to center my topics on sports; I can write on whatever I want (not that much of a change since I really did that anyway). I have always said that I was not going to write a Detroit Lions column until they were res pectable. Well, though I'm cautious about admitting it, I think the Lions have finally reached that point. The Lions, by virtue oi their wins over Cleveland and New Orleans, now have a two-game winning streak, their longest since 1986. I know this may not seem to be a big deal, but consider the fact that the Lions' win s t r e a k is l o n g e r t h a n Cleveland's, the Giants', Minnesota's and Chicago's. Not so bad now, eh? The two wins have also come against quality t e a m s . Both Cleveland and New Orleans have been in the playoff hunt all year The Browns were leading the American Football Conference central division at the time of their loss to Detroit, and New Orleans was still in the hunt in the National Football Conference

west until their loss to the Lions The Lions have achieved their respect with a tough defense, a unique offense, and the work ol rookies Rodney Peete and Barry Sanders. The Lions' defense is one of the strongest up the middle in the NFL. They have J e r r y Ball at noseguard, a strong linebacking corps, and Bennie Blades and William White at the safeties. Once the Lions' pick up a true pass-rushing defensive end, and a good coverman at cor nerback, they'll have a true impa"* defense. On offense, they need some time to get adjusted to their run n' shoot technique and for rookie quarterback Rodney Peete to get some more playing experience. Rookie r u n n i n g back B a r r y Sanders was leading the NFC in rushing going into the New Orleans game, and he was the first back in the NFL to go over 1,000 yards for the season. So, what does all of this add up to? Not a playoff berth this year, but with continued improvement and a good d r a f t , next year should be a good one for the Lions. The nucleus is in place, and now all they need is the fine tuning and experience. Don't be surprised if the Lions a r e ripping up defenses like the University of Houston, a n o t . . r u n . shoot team, within the next couple viars.

The Hope College Women's Varsity Basketball team has gotten itself off to a g r e a t s t a r t this year. As of Tuesday, November *28. they have won all of their ^ames, though none as of yet hnve been conference games. Sue Wise, coach of the tearr. attributed their success thus far to the " d e p t h " of the team as a whole. ''We run a lot - run the other teams out," commented Wise. "By having a strong team all around, our substitutions keep us fresh, putting pressure on the other t e a m s . " Wise also felt that the unity of the team lends to their overall success. 14We a r e very team o r i e n t e d , " Wise e m p h a s i z e d . The girls work together, encouraging and pushing each other. If a team m e m b e r is down, they'll all work to bring her u p . " ' Though there a r e n ' t any individual "stand-out" players on the team, three players seem to be at the core, achieving doubledigit scoring almost every game. Dina Disney, a junior guard from Brandenburg, Kentucky, and co-captain, is a tremendous passer as well as a high scorer. Right now, she leads the leacue in passing. After the g a m e against F e r r i s on the Nov. 28, she had a c c u m u l a t e d 28 assists. There is no one else on the team that comes close to her record. "Disney is a very well-rounded player," said Wise. "She is in the top 10 percent of the league for points, assists, rebounds and field points. No other player can claim t h a t . " I.issa Nienhuis, a junior point guard from Holland, is "inv a l u a b l e . " c o m m e n t e d Wise, does intangible things well

that a r e simply invaluable to the team. She's fun to v a t c h and is a tremendous player as well.' Holly Vandenburg, a senior from Grand Rapids and cocaptain, is, according to Wise, "very solid, but not all that flashy. She is a dependable re bounder and one of our top f jorers. She also has a stro ig •"uJt f ship cffei i u. vh.r t e a m . '

'We are very teamoriented.'

Wise is inost impressed with her team because, "They work hard. The g a m e against F e r r i s last Tuesday, November 28th, was a . . 8 a m e because they a r e Division II. But we worked hard and our team-oriented offense wore them out. Their starting line-up was more talented, but Hope worked h a r d . " The final score of last Tuesday's g a m e was 63-48. Nienhuis led the team with 14 points Vandenburg followed suit with 13 and Disney posted 9. I .ot weekend's tournament

Hope tnen's volleyball club proves Successful In Dow tournament


(Photos by Caty Kehs)


by Rochelle Anderson stfeff writer V h e Hope College Men's Velleyball Club hosted a tournament last Saturday at the Dow Center, with Aquinas, Calvin, Grand Valley State University, Kalamazoo and Olivet. H o p e ' s team was large enough to^split into two squads. The first team defeated Olivet and Grand VMley State University, but lost a plose m a t c h to Kalamazoo. The second team lost to Calvin and Gfand Valley's second teams. A|ter a long match with Aquinas, the second team also lost 10-12, 7 m , 10-12. Co-captains Mike Gibson and Dave Maclntyre organized the dny's events, which included two )ls and playoffs. The competitifcn ranged from novice to experienced. The playoffs consisted of a simi-final round and the finals. I ^ l a m a z o o lost to Aquinas and Hope lost to Calvin in intense games. Calvin defeated Aquinas 1J-12, 15-1, 15-9, in a best of five series to win the final round. ^Overall, Gibson and Maclntyre were very pleased with how they pteyed. " T h e splitting of the into two squads cut our depth, but I think we played prettjKweU," commented Maclntyre. Cheering the other squad or


Mike Gibson bumps to a teammate during last Saturday's volleyball tournament. The men's volleyball team hopes to become a varsity 1 sport I when not playing themsel showed the Hope t e a m ' s unity. Gibson stated, "Our goal is to have fun and play hard. We've got a great group of guys." The team has five returning m e m b e r s : David M a c l n t y r e , Mike Gibson, Todd Hilbelink, Steve Ramsey and Brian Pietenpol. The team consists of seventeen m e m b e r s and is very young. Maclntyre believes that this is one of their strong points. They have only two seniors and one junior, which gives them a firm foundation for f u t u r e years. Another strong point is their positive attitude. One of the t e a m ' s key goals is to become a varsity sport. Currently, the team receives money through Student Congress a s well as from $25 in dues that each m e m b e r pays. According to Gibson, MSAC (the Student Appropriations Committee) has been very helpful in their support of u s . " Coach Smith and the athletic directors a r e also determined to m a k e men's volleyball a varsity sport. In order to become a varsity sport, there must be four schools with teams in the MIAA. Calvin has expressed an interest, and Maclntyre and Gibson believe other teams will be interested as well. The team then needs r m i n i s . r a t i v e s u p p o r t to ^ t

things rolling. Ihe team m e m b e r s a r e anxious to gain varsity sport status for a number of reasons. A m a j o r reason is the money. If m e n ' s volleyball becomes a varsity sport, they will no longer h a v e to go through Student Congress for funding. Instead, the athletic department would take c a r e of ihip 4 another reason is to m a k e it ^asier to practice. Currently, men's volleyball is on the bottom of the list when it comes to scheduling practice times. " J a n e Holman has been very helpful in scheduling p r a c t i c e s , " commented Gibson, "but unfortunately, being a club sport, we have no priority in the g y m . " Being a varsity sport would take the pressure off the cocaptains. They would no longer have to plan the tournaments and run the practices. Currently, Kelly Phillips and Debbie Roessler are managing the team. " I ' m really pleased," stated Phillips, "with the improvements of the team and a m very privileged to be able to work with the guys." While the team is working on gaining varsity status, they will continue to play hard and h a v e fun doing it. "The thrill of compecition between young men of equal lathletic a b i l i t y , " said Ward Holloway, "is uplifting."

Flying Dutch tame Cougars by Bill Meengs sports editor In what can only be called a blowout and a mismatch, the Hope College men's basketball team rolled to an easy 114-69 win over the Concordia Cougars from River Forest, 111. Hope took control of the action early as sophmore Wade Gugino won the opening jump for the Dutchmen. A little over a minute into the game Hope had built a 4-0 lead, and the Concordia coach must have had a sense for what was to come because he took a time-out to try and settle his

troops. He would end up taking two more within a five minute span as Hope sprinted on to an 18-4 lead. With almost 13 and a half minutes left to go in the first half, Hope brought in their first subsitutions. The s t a r t e r s rode the bench from this point until the end of the half. The Hope subs continued to pressure Concordia, and at halftime the score stood 50-30 in favor of Hope. Hope opened the second half with their starting five, but once again, they were soon substituted out. It almost seemed like Hope s strting five of Eric Elliot,


Dan Klunder, Colly Carlson, Bart VerHulst and Wade Gugino could score at will. Consequently, the substitutes again saw most of the action in the second half. Every Hope player scored in the second game, with E r i c Elliot's 19 leading the way. Elliot was also a perfect 9-9 shooting from the floor. Hope's next action is tonight when they visit Concordia, Mich. In J a y v e e a c t i o n , H o p e defeated Aquinas by the score of 110-86 Saturday. Their next game is Thursday, December at home versus Grand Rapids Baptist. Game time is 7 p.m.
