Critical Issues

Will Focus on the Family Divorce. Working moms. Professional its attendant dependence on birth control. Living in a sex-saturatedculture. Ail of these are facts of modern life which seem to be waging war with the institution of the family. More and more people are asking, "Can the family persist?" That question is one of many which will be consideredduring the third annual Hope College Critical Issues Symposium on March 3 and 4 which this year takes as its theme, "Lives in Transition:The Future of Marriage and theFam-

these are tough economic times." Reagan's proposed 1983 budget calls for cutbacks in Pell Grants and the CollegeWork-Study program, plus eliminationof National Direct Student Loans, State Student IncentiveGrant Programs and Supplemental EducationalOpportunity Grants. "It certainly does appear that higher education has a lower priority for this administrationthan it has had during the past 25 years,"Himebaugh states. "At the same time, it's important to remember that those programs under question representthe federal scene only. Financial aid at Hope also depends on resources from the State of Michigan and the College itself. And those two sources will provide stable, solid funding next year — and beyond, from all indications." Last year an increase of more than $200,000 was available to Hope students from College sources,representinga 24 percentincrease over the amount of dollars the Collegeearmarked for financial aid the previous year. Another 10.4 percent increaseis in effect this year and that percentage of growth has again been approved for the academic year 1982-1983. Thus, for three years in a row increases in Hope dollars for financial aid have more than kept pace with increasesin tuition and room board costs. At the same time, each increase in Hope student costs has meant that the pool of studentsin need of financial aid also has grown. Himebaugh acknowledges that in most students' l

Foreign Studies Scholarship Is

Tribute to Dr. Fried

A scholarshipfund intended to help students broaden their international perspective through overseas study has been renamed in honor of Hope College history professorDr. Paul G. Fried.

Dr. Fried was founder of the Hope College Vienna Summer School and until this year director of the College’s international educationprogram. He is now devoting full-time to teaching. The scholarshipfund was created in 1968 as The Vienna Fund by persons who had studied in the Vienna Summer School. Its purpose was to further inter-cultural contact and understanding at Hope, with special emphasis on making it possible for students from Austria to study at Hope College. To commemorate the 25th anniversaryof the Vienna Summer School and in tribute to Dr. Fried for his contributionto Hope College,the fund has been designated as The Paul G. Fried InternationalEducation Fund. The purpose of the fund has been broadened to provide an overall internationaleducation experience,according to Hope College President



Dr. Van

Van Wylen. Wylen reported

that former students

have joined friends and colleagues of Dr. Fried in contributingto this endowment fund as an expression of their appreciationto Dr. Fried and his personal interest in them as well as his distinguished leadershipin internationaleducation. Dr. Fried was born in Leipzig, Germany, and receivedhis early education in Germany and Austria before entering Hope College as an undergraduate in 1940. The Second World War interruptedhis studies and took him back to Europe as a United States soldier in the 35th Infantry Division and the Military Intelligence Service.

Following the war he completed his B.A. at Hope and a master'sdegree in history at Harvard

Student Volunteers Become Carpenters, Gain Understanding by Marla Hoffman


most people head south during Christit for sunshine, warm weather and a chance to relax over the holidays. This past Christmas, 10 Hopeites travelled to the warmer southern climate,but a work project provided their incentive. Sponsored through the Chaplain'sOffice and funded by the “Christmas Tree Fund," Mike Bast, Evan Boote, Judy DeWeerd, Dave Groeneveld, Sheri Jolman, Missy Knopf, Keith Mulder, Sheryl Oomkes, Matt VanderBorghand Frea Westerveld spent Dec. 30-Jan. 10 in Americus, Ga., participating in "Habitat for Humanity." Habitat, as the student volunteerseagerlyexplain, is a non-denominational organization which attempts to share Christ's love by providing housing for underprivilegedhouseholds.

ing in Americus, they soon discovered that Habitat is working to change the face of poverty-levelhousing in a city where the contrast between rich and poor is almost overwhelming.Where one area might include stately mansions, homes just one or two city' blocks away are mere shacks. Part of the reason for their poor conditionis neglect : those who live in the homes do not respect the ramshackle structures which they only rent, and the owners, receivingtheir rents from a distance, often feel no need to concern themselves with the problems of upkeep. Fuller's goal is to involvethose who live in the houses in the work of renovation, and then help these people obtain ownership of

preferredto participate in on-locationtasks, including the demolition of one home, the reconstruction of another and the remodeling of a third building which will serve to house other Habitat volunteersin the future. The jobs helped deepen understandingof others' difficulties, accordingto Evan Boote. "What do you do ? First you have to become aware of the problem. Then you have to envision what can be done, and you have to have the faith to carry through on that." Work was the key factor in the trip to Americus, and the group was able to recognize the progressmade by their efforts. Yet all agree that while the physical labor they offered could only make a dentin the overall accomplishments of Habitat,the learning that took place through this experiencewas all-important. As Sheryl Oomkes exclaims,"I just never realized how rich I was. I have central heating and running water. I just took everythingfor granted before I went down there."

Both David and Martha feel that as a couple they have dealt with the problem of competition and that it should not recur in the future. The most pervasivedilemma that David and Martha face is the lack of free time. Not only are there career demands made on both, but also social obligations, child care, and household responsibilities.These multipledemands cut heavily into their free time and sometimescreate stress. The demands of their relatives, friends, associates from each of their professions,and other organizedgroups in which they participate seem insatiable. Since time is at a premium,they generally interact socially as a couple, rather than as individuals. They most often draw their joint friends from among their career associates Martha's associates are more often their friends than David's associates, because her colleagues seem more supportiveof their dual-careermarriage. Though they do not entertain frequently, when they do, it often occurs at restaurants, or is a catered affair in order to reduce the preparation and clean up demands. David and Martha state that they interact with their parents and other extended family members less frequentlythan they feel single-career families do. This is due in part to their lack of free time, the physicaldistance from parents,and some emotional distance. When interactions do occur, these tend to be based on the stronger affection and common values they share with David's family,and not on equal treatment for both David's and Martha's families. The problem of schedulingadequate time for interacting and caring for their children, leisure activities,and being together as a couple also cause stress. When possible they attempt to create flexibleschedulesthat allow the opportunity to coordinatemore completely the variety of home and work responsibilities.Both of their employers offer "flex-time"schedules.Martha chose to work from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. so that .

In recent years, dual-careermarriages have

become increasinglyconspicuous and signifiThough still small in number, there is good reaspn to assume rapid increases in the next few


years. Dual-career marriages do not simply mean that both the husband and wife work. Both are pursuing professional careers. These careers require educationor technical skill, a high degree of commitment,and a fairlycontinuous pattern of involvement. They offer opportunities for advancement, good salaries,and are a major source of personalsatisfaction and fulfillment. The following case study illustratesmany of the strains and satisfactions common to couples in dualcareer marriages. David and Martha S. , both in their early 30's, have two beautiful children. Like an estimated one millionother couples, they are each pursuing careers. David is a banking executiveand Martha is a chemist, employed by a large pharmaceuticalfirm. Their combined annual income is $60,000 a year. David and Martha both agree there are additional stresses as a result of their dual career choices;however, they also feel they have additional benefits. These benefits are personal and have a positive effect on the family. They report their professions provide them with challenge, intellectualstimulation, personal satisfaction, and, of course, a higher income. They also feel they are better mates and parents becauseof the fulfillment gained outside of the home. Martha's career offers her an opportunity for

He joined the Hope faculty in 1975. The case study which Piers presents here illustrates many of the problems and benefits common to dual career marriages.

self-expression, creativity, achievepient,and recognitionoutside the realm of family responsibilities. Since she has been trained as a chemist, her career offers her the opportunity to be productive professionally and to find a large part of her identity in this career. She avoids the "trapped" feeling she thinks she would face with only home and family responsibilities.Several re- search studies have shown that the woman who is receiving career satisfaction is also happier in her role of wife and mother than the woman who is home but wants a career. One study comparing one and two-careerfamilies, found women in two-careerfamilies to report less pressure and worry, better physical and mental health, better communication with family members,and more happiness. The financial benefits of this dual-career marriage are considerable as both are earning professional salaries. This relatively high family income providespresentand future economic security and a high standardof living. In addition it also offers family members several other rewards. David is freed from the psychological pressureof being the sole breadwinner and providing for all the family financial needs. Both David and Martha aie freed of household and maintenance tasks through the hiring of housekeepers and maintenance persons as needed. In addition, the extra income allows them to enjoy expensive leisure activitiesand vacations. They also note that the high income is somewhat necessary to offset the additional expenses for clothing, transportation, and child care, necessary since both partnersare working. When asked how their dual careers affected their children, they felt the effects were mostly positive. Their answers parallelleda research review by F. Philip Rice in Marriage and Parenthood. Rice's review suggeststhat children of dual-careerfamilies develop "greater independence and resourcefulness"and assume "more responsibilitiesfor family tasks." Thechildren's pride in their parents' accomplishments reinforces "the children's feelings of importance, enhances their status, and sense of identity." There is also a ' greater range of role models for childrenof both sexes" with a "broader, less stereotypedconcept of the female role" than is seen in childrenof non-workingmothers. Both Martha and David agree that the advantages and benefits of a dual-careermarriage do not occur without some sacrificeand stress. Early in their marriage.

Since competent friends and relatives were unavailable to take care of the children during their pre-schoolyears and day care centersseemed unacceptable,they hired a baby-sitterwho came to their home each day. They feel fortunate to have found one who provided consistent in-home child care, since many of their dual-careerfriends have described difficulties in findingand keeping competent care

Martha recounts the recurringguilt she felt when the children were young. She wondered if her children were somehow suffering because of her career. She also feared that they might have stronger emotional ties to their nanny than to her. In response to this guilt, she would give in to the children's demands and respond to their every whim. When the children did not take her discipline seriouslyor act appropriatelyin her presence,she became depressed,feeling she was an incompetent parent. It was only after long discussionswith David and consultinga child psychologist,that she accepted the situation. She learnedthat it is important for infants and pre-schoolersto be cared for by a single high quality, consistentsubstitute care giver.

She also found that preschoolersneed both mat ernal and paternalsupport, and believes her career may have encouraged David to become more involved with the children.

agreements in their marriage are related to household tasks. Though the housekeeper has taken over many of these responsibilities,the remainder is now specificallyassigned to either David or Martha. They agree that Martha has more responsibility for household tasks than David. Though this situation is probably a result of some traditionally held societal view that the woman is responsiblefor the home, Martha is not always pleasedwith this arrangement. Another conflict David and Martha have encountered is the question of deciding whose job is worth a long-distance move. Both have had multiple opportunities for job changes and transfers that would require a long-distancemove. Some dual-careercouples decide to move if there is significant opportunity for career advancements for one party and an opportunity for a position similar to the currentone for the other. Others base this decision on whose job has priority. Still others alternate moves — if the wife's career dictates one move, the husband's will dictate the next. David and Martha made their first move for Martha. The next move was made so that David could take an executivepositionwith a bank. Because they are both pleased with their present positions, they do not anticipate another move and dread the potential conflictthat such a decision-making process could-cause.Researchersstudying dual-careermarriages suggestthat most long-distance moves are made to advance the husband's and not the wife's

David and Martha seem to deal well with the stress of their dual-careermarriage, and enjoy the additional satisfaction that it offers.


asked the reasons they feel their marriage is succeeding in spite of some additional stress, they listed several. Both feel that their prenuptual knowledge of Martha's career commitment and David'sacceptanceof her career plans and his willingnessto assume non-traditional domestic roles and increasedchild care responsibilities were important.They both also realized that their marriage would be more egalitarian than traditional marriages. Martha felt that David's concern for her, his deep admirationand respect for her career accomplishments, and his support and understanding were very important. David added that the open communication and the strong commitment they had to their marriage and family were extremely necessary for. their maritalsuccess. Since stress is inevitable, open communicationand clear family priorities are very important in the decision-

making process. They

stressed that it is also

important to plan for children, and that these children receive consistent, competent, substitute care, if their parents cannot take them to work. As the number of dual-careermarriages increase, it will be important that society and employersrespond to these changes. Women chos ing the role of homemaker, career women, or some combination, should be equally respected for their choices. If women choose careers, there are several ways that child care problems can be reduced.Provisionsfor flexiblework schedules, maternity and paternityleaves, job-shanng and part-time careers, and quality day care and nursing facilitieswould greatlydecrease stress.

That opinion formed the impetus last spring for Hope's first Faculty Colloquiumon Classic Texts, an off-campus weekend seminar designed to promote faculty development and collegiality through intense focus on a particular text. Because of the successof that first experiment, a second colloquium was held in late January and faculty planners hope the event is on its way to becoming part of each semester's calendar of events. A large part of the appeal of the colloquium, inspired by the University of Chicago's Midwest Faculty Seminars which have been attendedby several Hope professors, is that it allows for prolonged discussionin an academic "alphabet soup" environment which mixes togetherprofessorsfrom a variety of fields of expertise. As one participant has noted, "I knew my colleagues socially and politicallybefore this, but I never had a chance to discover how they used their minds." This semester 25 colloquium participants read and discussed Sigmund Freud's Civilization and Its Discontents. The colloquium was held in the retreat setting of Herman Miller, Inc.'s Marigold Lodge on Lake Macatawa,making it easier for participants to have a sense of getting away from one's familiar frame of referenceand encountering other points of view. Severalsmall-group discussionsessions, led by Profs. Wayne Boulton of the religion department and Joe MacDonielsof the communicationdepartment, were complemented with a lecture by Randall Mason, president of the Center of Religion and Psychotherapy in Chicago. Civilization and Its Discontentswas chosen because it is a cumulative work in which Freud discussesseveral of his

attention because of its frequentobservationson matters of religion. Discussionindicated that at Hope, at least, Freud


seems to be taken more seriously by literacy critics,historians and theologiansthan by psychologists. An ancient classic, Plato's Republic, was the focus for last year's colloquium. According to John /Cox, chairman of the faculty ad hoc committee which has planned the two colloquia, no area of inquiry is eliminated from the "classic text" designation, although those who originatedthe colloquia believe that only "monuments of human thought and achievement" — as opposed to temporarily popular works — should be selected,

texts have not appeared only in one or two fields of inquiry, and we hope to respond to the richness of human heritage in these colloquia." The vitalityof the colloquia seems to derive from the fact that they have been created, planned and carried out by faculty members, on their own initiative.Hope's chief academic officer,ProvostDavid Marker, has pointedout that intellectual activity of this sort is something college leaders can only hope for; if they try to achieve it by mandate, its goals are never achieved. The first colloquium was funded by a grant from the Danforth Foundation. This year funding came from Hope College'sown faculty development fund.

accompanimentof by Eileen Beyer Home-schooling is a term which some people equate only with wilderness settings or preLittle House on the Prairie days. Other people think home-schooling is reserved only for child-geniuseswhose minds are too large for ordinary,chalkboard-bound spaces. Still others think of home-schoolers as a cantankerous lot — parents in front of TV cameras while their kids, devoid of all mental discipline, put their feet up on walls and chew bubble gum with diligence while they peruse comic books with languor. Karen Cox, an early educationconsultantwith 15 years' teachingexperienceat several levels in several types of schools, and her husband John '67, assistant professorof Englishat Hope, have encountered many such preconceptionssince they began educating their three childrenat home 3 ‘A years ago. Most people — particularly those with no exposure to nontraditional classrooms, be they in schools or in homes simply can't imagine childrenlearning things like multisyllablereading or post-fingers-and toes mathematics "on their own," in a setting where days aren't divided into chunks of time to

accommodatethe three R's plus more modern curricular expectations. Without a doubt, the Coxes' home school is


far less structuredthan its bell-regulated counterparts. But they are certain that there's noth-

ing haphazard about the approach which they describe as "integratededucation." "What we mean by the term 'integrated education' is that the childrenare learningskills because they need and want those skills to carry on what they'redoing," Karen Cox explains. "Our first goal is that our childrenlearn to think, to make connections between one thing and another thing and discover what the world around them is really like. We work on that a great deal. Second, we vyant them to acquire the skills that enable them to find out more about the things about which they have questions.All along the way, we, as the adults in this process, providethe materials necessaryto keep the environment responsive to the childrens' needs." Integratededucation works well with another learning method the Coxes employ, also used by some nontraditional schools. It is an extroverted way of learningwhich substitutes all the possibilitiesof a city for all the confines of aclassroom. Thus, for the Cox children, homeschooling does not mean staying home every day; instead, they enjoy — and learn from — one field trip after another, which are opportunities to pick up new information and see how the workings of the world relate to their own lives. There is no typical day with this kind of learning approach, but an example sheds some light on how it works; A letter arrived at the Cox home one morning from Anna-Lisa's Japanese friend. Anna-Lisa, 10, eagerly read the letterthen passed it on to her brother Jonathan, 8. Amelia, the youngest, 6 years, read parts o( the letter and was given guidance in mastering the new words which had given her some difficulty. Eager to answer this letter, the children did so immediately. Help was given when requested and the letters were reviewed for spelling and grammatical accuracy. The letterswere addressed and sealed, and then Karen and the childrenmade the familiar drive into town. First stop was the post office, where the window clerk not only received their letters but responded to their questions — What's the differencebetween airmailand surface-mail? Why doesn't a letter to Japan need a zip code? How would their letters be deliveredin Japan since they were addressedin English ? How much

"Japanese Melodies for Harp and Flute." Later the family hung a decorativeJapanese banner that Anna-Lisa's friend had given, and they ate a supper of rice, with chopsticksin lieu of cutlery on this particular evening. "We take the educationaltheories of Jean Piaget very seriously,"says Karen, who in the early 1970s became interested in the Montessori teaching method and ultimatelybecame a certified Montessori teacher. "We believe that children learn about whatever they are actively involved in." On this day of Japanese encounters— which ended up including reading, writing, arithmetic, art .appreciation, geographyand several more "subjects" — John was absent from, most of the activities.But he is very much involved in the home-school effort. "It's not a matter of Karen being the teacher and my being just the pinchhitter, someone to give her some time off. It is very much a mutual responsibility," he says. The Coxes have discoveredthat their best experiences as home-schoolers have occurredwhen the adults and childrenall have been learning together. For instance, last summer Karen, true to her New Mexico heritage, killed a snake in the garden. The family decided they'd all like to know more about the carcass which now graced Karen's hoe. Karen was most interested in knowing if it was poisonous. So, it was off to town again, this time to Hope biology professorHarvey Blankespoor'slab. There they learned that their snake was a hog-nosed variety,nonpoisonous and fairly rare in Michigan. They learned many characteristics of their snake, as well as those of other types that slither through Michigan. "Also, at the same time, the children learned that there are people like Harvey Blankespoor, whose fascination and avocation in life is to be discoveringinformation about things like snakes," Karen points out. Adds John; "This is career education of the very best kind — to see real people doing meaningful work in their lives,to have the chance to participate in that work by asking questions about it, and to understand how another person's work relates to their own daily living." A final incident caused the snake episode to come to an especially happy conclusion.Some weeks after the visit with Harvey Blankespoor, another hog-nosed snake appeared in the Cox garden. The children — now knowing it was rare and would be considered a valuable additionto the Hope collection— captured it, live this time, and presented it to the College. "Children need to see education as something other than adults pouring knowledgeinfb them," Karen maintains."They need to see that they too have things to give. Learning at its very best has this kind of reciprocation going on.'" The Coxes initiallybecame home-schoolers as the result of circumstances rather than longrange plan. Both Anna-Lisa and Jonathan began their schoolingin Victoria, British Columbia, at an alternative school founded and directed by their mother. (John was teachingat the University of Victoria.) Shortly after the school had begun, John received a one-year fellowship from Harvard University.The family moved to Cambridge in 1978 and began the search for a school Public schools in Cambridgehave a poor reputation, John says, "despite the fact that they stand in the shadow of Harvard University." Private schools,they discovered,were very expensive and, because their stay would be short-termed, the Coxes didn't qualifyfor any financial aid. "We had never before considered educating our own childrenat home. But we wanted to make sure the children's education would continue in a form that wouldn't be disruptiveto .

them, and we knew we'd be moving again at the end of that year," Karen explains. "We knew what kind of school they had been in, since I had directed it. So, we decided that for that year, for the sake on continuity,we would educate the childrenourselves.We had heard of schools, such as the PhiladelphiaParkway Project, which approached learning by using the city as their classroom,and we thought, what better place to use that kind of approach than Boston, with its rich historical heritage, wonderful museums and galleries? So, we took the plunge. Instead of paying tuition, we took out family memberships in severalmuseums, the New England Aquarium, and some of the galleries." The next move the family made was to Holland and Hope. Again they found themselves in a temporary situation which had ramifications for the children's schooling.They were renting a home near Lake Michigan while they looked for their permanenthome in the area, which, more than likely, would be located in another school district.Again, tor the sake ot continuityanc because' they felt the year in Boston had beer "very successful," the Coxes decidedtocontinu with home-schooling.

This process — "what it is" — is best described from the perspective of those individuals responsible for News From Hope's publication:its staff.

High on the north wall of an upstairs room in Alumni House hang five wooden letter "Fs" in a neat row. The marching "Fs" are an enigma of uniformly-brown Lincoln logs that beg to be explained. "Do you know what those stand for?" asked Robert DeYoung, vice presidentfor Development and College Relations,pointing to the "Fs"? "The first is Identify your marketplace; the second is Inform the people in a creative way; the third is Interest them; the fourth is Involve them; and if you do the first four properly,the fifth is they're going to Invest." Tightlybound up in the word "Invest" is the word contribution,which suggeststhe possible criticism that News From Hope is a fund-raising vehicle, imaginativelywrapped. "We indirectly thought of it in those'terms," admitted DeYoung, "but we haven'tused it as a fund raiser.In order to accomplish the mission of the College we need the involvement of a lot of people. Out of that comes support: time, prayers, and resources. . It's the way we share the ongoing light and mission of the College." Although the "light" and "mission" is not an easy philosophy to pin down, Editor Tom Renner and DeYoung share similar views concerning Hope Collegeand its goals. Heavy-handedcensorship by the administration does not exist ; the relationship might better be described as a gentlemen's agreement. "I don't censor," explained DeYoung. "I don't even see the paper before it goes to press. There have been occasionswhen I wondered about an article;I expressedmy concern and that was enough for me. It's been well taken." the

BuildingB on Herman Miller Inc.'smain site in Zeeland, Mich, was once used for factory production.Although it now containsoffices,a resource center, and a lounge,it stillhas gigantic air ducts suspended from the ceiling like white submarines. The buildingcontinues to house a product of sorts: people who think and develop new ways of communicatingHerman Miller's furnitureand its employees. Deb Hall '80, a communicationsspecialistfor Herman Miller arid the first student reporterfor News from Hope, is adept at jugglingfood and questions during her luncheon break. "I'll always be indebtedto Tom (Renner) and Eileen (Beyer, the editorial assistant)," said Hall. "They challengedme. They let me influence a lot of what I had to write. I could come up with my own approach on a topic they'd assign ' Since Hall worked for Neivs From Hope there have been a number of other studentswho have appliedtheir skills to the newspaper. Why use students when most college newspapers use • full-time reporters? "My impressionwas they wanted me to stay a student ... I had my college life too . . They wanted me to think like a student,to have a student's perspective. Issues will always come up that deal with the administration and the student body. I wasn't torn between perspectives, because I maintained my identity. I know, too, that Tom Renner was interested in giving students practicalexperiencein the field of writing, without the student having to go to New York or someplace else to get it." Because hindsight is valuable,the question "What if you were the editor?" seemed justified. T was relatively naive as a student regarding the purpose of organizational communications.

News from Hope is a public relations Somehow, when you say that it's


assumed you've abandoned all standardsof professionalism.I don't think that has to be so. "When it comes to our story log, it's understood that we make the final decisions. Sometimes we need to re-emphasize this policy; we find most people understand us when they realizewe only have so many pages to work with and that our budget won't allow for more

pages." The information,pictures, and stories that go into the story log are the product of events: past, present, and future. From a bulging story file in the editorial assistant's office comes an assortment of ideas for the story log of each issue. Beyer gathers this information from helpful readers, sudden flashes of inspiration, the editor (who loves series stories)and other publ ications , most notably college newspapers and magazines. She uses other college publications' story ideas, format design, etc. as springboards for Hope's newspaper. Other sources for articles usually suggest themselves. What are the professorsup to academically,artistically,and in their personal lives? What building is going up? Wharbuilding is burning down? What's happening in sports? What's happening to alumni? How can the newspaper whet the appetite of its readers for future events? These are simple questions out of which sometimes complicatedarticlesare born. News From Hope does the job it was originally designed to do, not only because its editorial staff is very positive about Hope College, but because,in Hall's words, the College "is doing good things that are known, which makes a Madison Avenue approach to public relations unnecessary." The newspaper is not avant-garde;neither is it a hidebound, ultra-conservative mouthpiece of the administration. However you want to define Hope College, News from Hope seeks to portray those things which define Hope at its best — to reverse Newsweek'smotto, "We don't break the mold. We fit it."

Workshop Offered

Out of choice or necessity, more people than ever are consideringcareer changes these days, reportsDale Austin, director of Hope's Placement Services. Many of these job-seekerswent through college before the days of a Career Center and to them just writing up a new resume may seem to be a high-riskadventure. Other more recent grads might be looking for a different kind of career guidance advice than that which they receivedas undergraduates— now they want something more relevant to their current situation as experienced professionals. To help alumni interested in making career changes and alumni already involved in looking for new vocations, the Career Center is offering a two-day workshop designed to make the process easier — and help ensure that it results in an effective midstreamswitch. The Career Change Workshop will be held on-campus beginning Friday,June 11 at 2:00 p.m. and ending Saturday, June 12 at 4:00 p.m. Overnight dorm lodging and all meals are included in workshop fee of $30. The registration deadline is May 21 and a $15 depositmust accompany reservation.Enrollment is limitedto 40 alumni.

Another new program of the Career Center involving alumni is the Alumni Employment ReferralProgram,which aims to put Hope seniorsin touch with job openings. The program, which will be launched on a pilot basis next month, will result in alumni being contacted by mail and provided with an addressed, stamped postcard to be used to inform the Career Center of entry level openings in their own places of employment or their geographic areas. The program initiallywill involvea sampling of alumni in the education profession,because Hope's current computer provides no easy access to alumni in other professions.Also, Austin states, "we want to determine the effectiveness of using alumni for employment referral before launching a larger program."

was one of seven women profiled. 1 felt very honored to be chosen for that article. However, I was disturbedthat in reporting "their feelings about choices they'vemade, their aspirations and how these were developed," the most important element guiding my life — my ^jaith in Christ — was left out. The Hope article was taken in its entiretyfrom a profile that appeared last April in the Missoula newspaper, The Missoulian . After thecomment about choking a county commissioner, the reporter wrote, "That comment, it should be emphasized, is a figure of speech,for Koelbel, who was raised in the Reformed Church, feels strongly about the ways and teachingsof )esus Christ." My husband, lohn, was quoted as saying, "She has a good solid base in her Christianbeliefs." My faith in God is the most important element in my life and what I do with that life. 1 was determined to write a letter soon after the Hope articlecame out saying that there was more to Norie Koelbelthan hitting pigs, strangling county commissioners and pushing books, but the rush of the Christmas season in the book businessprevented it. Perhaps it is a good thing this letter was delayed because, as 1 received Christmas cards from our Hope friends, 1 noticed they all wrote about the goodness of God in their lives. I thought maybe our faith in God. our which

many people could graduate from Hope

after being in a class taught by such intelligent

Alsoin The Missoulian, I highly praised Hope College,which I was surprisedto see absent in the Hope article.As The Missoulian pointed out, those four years played an important part in shaping my life as it is today. On perhaps a lighter note — Montana is a beautiful place to visit. Missoula lies between Yellowstone and GlacierNational Parks. If any alumni would like any information about Montana, I'd be happy to see they get it. There is a saying in the west that the latch string is always out' — which means you are welcome at our home any time. We hope alumni will remember that invitation when travelling through Missoula.

Outdoor Sculptures

by Marla Hoffman


the Pine Grove trades its white blanket green cape and flower buds spring up to line Holland's well-known Tulip Lane, an exhibition of large-scale sculptureswill display their creators' abilitiesacross the Hope College campus. "American Eight," a collection of threedimensional creations of well-known artists, will be introduced to the community in mid-April and will remain available to art enthusiasts throughout the tulip tourist season. "American Eight" is a display of the work of eight artists whose works have been exhibited both across the Unifed States and abroad. The opportunity to exhibit this collection comes to Hope as a gift from the Interpace Corporation of Parsippany, N.J. In existencefor only two seasons, the exhibitionhas been shown at only two other campuses. According to Jacob Nyenhuis, Hope's dean for the arts and humanities, the show is "a distinctive opportunity for the campus," and it is not often that a school such as Hope can afford to displaya collection of such size and quality, making Interpace's gift particularly appreciated. ’ Made of steel and aluminum, the works will for a

of the artists: for

centrateon the aspects of perceptionand illusion; fluid movement is an important concern for Kenneth Snelson and John Henry; and Lyman Kipp and Jerry Peart both focus on the elements of form and color. Although all eight of these artistswill be representedin the spring, the particular works in the collection are variable as the displaymoves between locations. How should the viewer,be he or she expert or novice in art criticism, react to these works of art? "Spend time with the pieces. Be patient with them." This is the advice of Bill Mayer, the resident sculptor on Hope's art faculty. To those who might feel shy about observinga contemporary work of an unfamiliarnature, Mayer urges, "Approach it like a human being that you don't know. Develop a rapport with it." As a statement of the need to open oneself to new experiences and perceptions,Mayer's advice reflects the posture of the College, which in recent years has concentratedon making art more accessible, an effort which will become easier when the new DePree Art Center and Gallery opens next fall. This posture of openness has allowed Hope to continue to increase its offerings of the arts — to grow at a time when the classroom emphasis on the arts is reported to be on the decline nationwide.
