Family Key to

Grads Journey The family is society's basic building block and the settingin which morally binding customs are shaped that eventually evolve into the laws of a land, according to Michigan Supreme Court Justice Mary S. Coleman, who addressed the 117th Hope College graduating class during commencementexercises on May 9 at the Holland Civic Center. Judge Coleman challenged Hope's graduates to commit themselves in particular to "the vigor and virtue of family tradition"and thus provide an example for generations to come. "The family, in a vital sense, is where it all begins, this journey through life in an ordered societygovernedby law. It is the incubator of lawfulness,of caring for each other," she said. The present time was described to graduates as "the cutting edge of history" and they were urged to avoid excessive introspection and, instead, embrace action, thus enhancing the privileges they had known growing up in a free and prosperous societyby providing some answers to what the speaker referred to as "this country's cry for help." Judge Coleman, the first woman to serve Michigan's Supreme Court and the first woman in the U.S. to be named Chief Justice of a state supreme court, was presented an honorary doctor of law degree. Receiving an honorarydoctor of humane letters degree was Dr. Barbara Reynolds, well-known Italianist and translator, who was cited as "a model Christian scholar." Dr. Reynolds is currently a visiting distinguishedprofessor in Hope's department of English. The College'sbaccalaureateservice was held earlier on campus in Dimnent Chapel with the Rev. James 1. Cook, professor of New Testamentat Western Theological Seminary and vice president of the General Synod of the Reformed Church in America, delivering the sermon, "The Veil of Ordinariness: Risk and Glory." Cook said that it is common for people to overlook God in their lives because they expect to find him revealed only in spectacular experiences or extraordinary encounters. Cook's theme, however, was that throughout history God has enjoined himself to men and women within the context of their everyday lives. Just as Jesus, "God's fullest revelation," was often dismissed as insignificant by those of his day, so too God's presence in the world Continued on page 2

Summer Repertory Theatre

There's something exciting, live, entertaining and young on the campus this summer as the Hope Summer Repertory Theatre presents its 11th season in the DeWitt Student and Cultural Center. Artistic directorJohn

-Tammi has chosen

four very differenttypes of shows, one of

which will be performedMonday through Saturday beginning July 2. To meet the challenge of this diverse repertory programming, Tammi has assembled what he considers to be one of the highest caliber companies the theatre has ever seen.

The season will open with Showboat, a great musical classic for the whole family, followed by The Member of the Wedding, a moving drama filled with the dream's and heartbreaks of youth; Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,a joyous musical celebrationby the authors of Jesus Christ Superstar; and Much Ado About Nothing, a classic comedy filled with the best of Shakespeare'slovers, heroes, villains and clowns. Tammi and Managing Director Mary Schakel began to put the season together in January. Auditions were held nationally.

"That's

in the religions that stress the bizarre, the

glamorous, the spectacular — from the cults, to the prophets of doom, to the electric church. That's why we keep missing him — or could it be avoiding him? — in the Gospel, which centers on such ordinary things as love, joy, peace, patience,kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, the Gospel which is always summoning us to such ordinary tasks as personal integrity, marital fidelity, social responsibility and professional competency. " Years at Hope, Cook concluded, are filled with the "extraordinary riches" of broadscoped learning, providing graduates with a "high privilegeand holy calling" — to use their knowledge and skills to create "gifts and blessingsin the everyday affairs of ordinary men and women, to the glory of God and sure in the knowledge that behind that veil of ordinariness stands God himself."

The company totals 30 performers equal to the challenge. New company member Ron Taylor from New York City comes from a starringrole as the Lion in the national touring production of The Wiz. He held a featured role in the BrooklynAcademy of Music's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,and performed in Connecticut summer stock in Jesus Christ Superstar. He also sang at the John F. Kennedy Center in Leonard Bernstein's The Mass. Among Taylor's strengths,says Tammi, are his fantastic warmth and presence, and his baritone voice. This summer he will perform the role of Joe in Showboat, and a leading role in Much Ado About Nothing. The company includes several returning performers. Carol Kuykendall, who in past summers played Anita in West Side Story, and Amanda in Private Lives, returns from the Chicago stage where she starredin Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? This will be her third season. She will play Ellie in Showboat and Beatricein Much Ado About Nothing. Brian Johnson, who starred as Curly in the 1975 produaion of Oklahoma, returns this summer and with a bonus — his wife, opera singer Marsha Hunter, who will play Brian's leading lady in Showboat. Returningto choreograph Showboat will be Jerry Mitchell who this year performeda dance solo on TV's Tony Awards. He has also appeared on the Dr. Pepper television commercial, in the National Touring Company's production of A Chorus Line, with Lauren ‘

"Hope College infuses us with the greatness of God," Mulder said. "We go out together to serve the present age — and because we do, you and 1 and all of us are great." Smallegan, current president and longtime supporter of the Women's League for Hope College, in accepting the award recounted those who have influenced her life, including family, friends and former Hope professors William Schrier ("who would never accept mediocrity"), Mrs. W. Curtis Snow and Robert Cavanaugh ("who taught me the beauty of culture and music"), John Hollenbach ("who taught me that when you have an investment in something, you always go for the best returns") and Lotus Snow ("who taught me to study, reach and work for the

Stoppels said unlike many lawyers who tend towards cynicism, he is an idealist and throughout his many years as a trusteehe has found his idealism mirrored in Hope's students. Even today, Stoppels noted, when students across America have replacedbooks like The Greening of America and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee with titles like Garfield Bigger Than Life, Hope students have managed to resist the anti-intellectual trend toward self-interest and materialism. "At Hope College, 1 don't think that the 'me generation'has ever really existed,"he said. "Although this collegemay reflect to some degree the trends that are manifested on other campuses, I think that Hope has always managed to maintain in its students the idealism which was prevalent in the 1960s, perhaps overdoneon some campuses.I've always been very proud of Hope College in that we have been able to live up to the ideals which we set forth in our catalog and which declare our intent and purpose as an institution."

President Offers Perspective for the Future As he completes his first decade as president of Hope College, Gordon J. Van Wylen has outlined plans by which the institution can achieve "a quantum step to a new level of excellence"in the years ahead. Van Wylen has defined his goals as "a step forward in spirit" and proposes a faculty and staff conference this fall as the first major activity to further this new endeavor. "The vision for this new level of achievement and the dynamic to accomplish it is drawn from the wellspring of our lives, from those inner resources that make us the persons we are, that provide a vision for that which is noble and true, and that motivate us to pursue this vision with vigor and confidence, both individuallyand as a College. This wellspring is, of course, God himself, and the faith we have in him." By pursuing a new level of excellencewith-

in this framework.Van Wylen says, three educationalperspectiveswill become increasinglyevident at Hope. These include a love for all truth and a sense of stewardship in the world, a sense of personal wholeness and purpose, and a focus on serving others. By building on these three areas of commitment, Van Wylen states, Hope can make "a tremendouscontribution" to higher education. "Such perspectiveson education run counter to much contemporarythought and practice, though I believethey do reflect the deeper longings and aspirationsof many persons in higher education," he notes. Specifically, Van Wylen sees four major areas of campus life which would be enhanced by a conscious move toward a renewal of

"There's going to have to be a transition period,but 1 think it will begin within the next five years," he stated.

Improvement of residential life at Hope has been one of Van Wylen's special interests in recent years, and in this area too he sees needs — lonely, "left-out"students, minority and foreign students who are too much at the fringes of campus life, and problemsrelated to irresponsibledorm behavior.

Nursing Program

After years of being associatedwith poor pay, bad hours and a "doctor's handmaiden" image, the professionof nursing is on an upward course and nurses with four-year, baccalaureatedegrees are leading the advance, says Hope alumnus Donald E. Walchenbach, executive director of Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, Mich. Walchenbach,a 1949 Hope graduate, has headed Butterworth since 1972 and has 30 years experience as a hospital administrator. "The baccalaureatedegree nurse, having had a broader education experience than that of the diploma nurse, will be able to adjust to the increasingdemands of nursing," Walchenbach stated."The more educated person, obviously,will be able to respond more affirmatively to the continuing changes in technology and responsibilities that are going to be the burden of the nurse in the future." Walchenbach was one of the earliest proponents for the formation of the Hope-Calvin Department of Nursing, which will accept its first 50. students this fall. He began meeting in early 1979 with Hope President Gordon J. Van Wylen and Calvin College President Anthony J. Diekema to discuss the possibility of such a program.This past April the Michigan Board of Nursing gave unanimous approval for the establishment of the joint department of nursing.

"Out of this might well come another Rhodes Scholar from Hope, or our first Marshall or Truman Scholar," he says.

Commemorative Sculpture Commissioned Stuart Luckman, a sculptor from St. Paul, Minn., has been awarded a contract by the Board of Trustees to construct a sculpture on Hope's campus in commemoration of the College's founder, the Rev. A. C. Van Raalte. Luckman was selected by means of competition sponsored by the Board of Trustees which attracted 59 artists from seven eligible states — Michigan, Illinois,Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota.Luckman's winning sculpture will be constructed of stainless steel and will stand approximately 18

The sculpture will serve as the College's final recovery from a fire which in April, 1980, completely destroyed Van Raalte Hall, the campus' only visible homage to its founder. Also that spring the city of Holland agreed to close 12th St., which ran through the heart of campus. The former street area was landscaped and named the Van Raalte

Commons. It was determined to be an ideal spot for a piece of outdoor sculpture which would "express the characterof Van Raalte's life as well as the Christian commitment of the college he founded," Nordstrom reports. Ten of the 59 competition entrants were asked to submit maquettes of their proposed

Meadmore said

Both Gilmore and Wilson voiced further approval of the site selected. Gilmore noted that because the sculpture will be constructed

by Eileen Beyer Good sculpture,says Stuart Luckman, is layered in experience.The piece he will' construct on Hope's campus reflects elements rooted in his own experience as well as his innovative understanding of the originsand history of Hope College. In designing the piece which was ultimately seleaed as the winner of the Hope-sponsored Seven State Sculpture Competition, Luckman took time to study Dutch art and architecture — "to try to ferret out some element that is indeed Dutch, to keep a kind of attention going for myself." The alternatingblack and white tile floors portrayed in the paintings of Vermeer and Pieter de Hooch (and also present today in Hope's Dimnent Chapel) and the roofs, chimneys and facades of certainDutch architectural styles emerged as strong forms which provided focus for Luckman as he worked to design a sculpture for Hope's campus. At the same time, this applauded sculptor is quick to point out that his prime criterion was that the sculpture be "a fresh, intense statement" rather than simply a commemoration.

Luckman graduated from Bethel College with a degree in political science in 1961 and then five years later enrolled in Macalester College,also in St. Paul, to study art. He graduated from the University of Minnesota with a master of fine arts degree in 1973. He has been commissionedto construct severalpieces of sculpture in Minnesota and in 1981 completed his first large-scale public commission, Rokker V, funded by the Alumni Association of the University of Minnesota. He has exhibited extensivelyin the Midwest, including a one-man show last year at Hope's neighbor institution, Calvin College in Grand Rapids. Luckman says he feels honored to have been awarded a commission from Hope because of his respectfor "a tough team of jurors" and because the competition was of such a large, regional scope. In entering into

contractwith Hope, Luckman says, "I'm doing a commission,yes. But I'm also celebrating with you." Whether or not the sculpturewill incorporate Hope founder Van Raalte'sname into its title remains to be seen. "I don't want to name the baby before it's born," Luckman states.

"This book attests anew to good things in small packages. In my judgment the book deserves 'classic'status. While addressed specifically to persons contemplating professionalChristian ministry, its thesis is of great benefit to every person who suffers and every person who would be of help, to those who suffer. At one point he expresses his thesis thus, 'When we become aware that we do not have to escape our pains, but that we can mobilize them into a common search for life, those very pains are transformed from expressions of despair into signs of hope.' Professor Nouwen recently left Yale Divinity School, where for a number of years he taught pastoralcounseling, to involve himself directly in the needs of the young people of a

Wayne Boulton, associate professorof religion, suggests: Leaves from the Notebook of a Tamed Cynic by Reinhold Niebuhr (Harper & Row

Paperbacks) "Have you ever wondered what ministers are really like? What are they actually thinking as they spend each day preparing sermons, chairing committees, counselling the troubled, etc. ? If these questions interest you, give yourself a treat and spend an evening or two with Reinhold Niebuhr's candid and delightful book. Tears and chuckles mingle in this portrait of his early days in the pastorate (1915-1928)before he became the Reinhold Niebuhr: 'There's something ludicrous about a callow young fool like myself standing up to preach a sermon to these good folks.' But who could not love that same callow fool when he sums up his ministry thus: 'Now that the time has come to sever my connections with the church I find it almost impossible to take the step. There is nothing quite like the pastoral relationship. . . (but) there must be something bogus about me. Here I have been preaching the gospel for over 13 years and crying 'Woe unto you if all men speak well of you,' and yet I leave without a serious controverty in the whole 13 years.'

The Public Church: MainlineEvangelical-Catholic by Martin Marty (Crossroad Press) pp. 170 "The eminent church historian'addresses this book to the current situationin the North American churches, which have been sufferinga crisis of morale and mission.' It is a feeling which has been growing for almost a generation in mainline Protestant and Roman Catholic Churches, who recently have been joined in their dismay by leaders in evangelical Protestantism disturbed by the extent to which religious consumerism seems to be displacing the cost of discipleshipand a market orientationin the churches caters to individualism but does not build community.

Champs Again!

Hope College won its third consecutive Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association

(MIAA)

DivisionIII national championships. Highlight of the season was the team's first MIAA dual meet victory over Calvin since 1972 as coach Gordon Brewer marked his 26th spring as head coach. Senior Jon Lunderberg of Holland, Mich, qualified for the nationals in the pole vault for the third straight year while Bill Mauren, a senior from Ann Arbor, Mich., went for the second year in a row in the javelin. Both were MIAA champions. Hope's other MIAA champion was junior Mark Southwell of Parma, Mich, in the 1,500 meter run. Lunderberg, Mauren, Southwell and Steven Underwood, a sophomore from East Lansing, Mich., were elected to the all-MIAA team. Freshman Kraig Jansen of Hudsonville, Mich, set school records in the 100 and 400 meter hurdle events. Southwell was voted the most valuable member on the team and captain of the 1983 squad.

during the 1981-82 school year. The -honor is presented to the MIAA member school with the best cumulative performance in the league's 18 sports. This year's award is especially significant because it was determined for the first time on the basis of finishes by both the men's and women's teams. During the year Hope teams won outright MIAA titles in football, men's basketball, women's swimming and women's track and were co-champions in men's cross country and women's tennis. No other MIAA school won as many championships. The men's teams had an outstanding year with no squad finishing in the lower division of the MIAA standings.Finishes of men's teams were: football, first; soccer, third; cross country, tied for first; golf, fourth; basketball, first;

The baseball team enjoyed its best MIAA record in more than a decade and three members of the track teams qualified for national competition. Perhaps most meaningful were the MIAA sportsmanship awards presented to senior Paul Boersma of Grand Rapids in men's tennis and to sophomore Suzi Olds of Spring Lake in women's tennis.

Journalist

Recognized

Bruce van Voorst '54 is one of three Time magazine correspondents who received a 1981 OverseasPress Club of America Award for the best magazine interpretationof foreign affairs. The trio was recognized for Time's Oct. 26, 1981, cover story, "Arming the World." OverseasPress Club awards are widely regarded as the most prestigiousrecognition availableto magazines. The winning article was a probing review of internationalconventional arms traffic. It traced the sales of weapons around the globe and reported an estimated $120 billion in annual weapons transfers. Weapon sales, the article stated, have become the chief tool of internationaldiplomacy. Before joining Time, van Voorst was diplomatic correspondent for Newsweek. He became Time/Life's Middle East bureau chief in 1979. Most recently he was chief of Time's European Economic Bureau, covering major internationaleconomic and business stories from his Brussels base. He covered the Iranian revolution and was later expelled from the country with all other journalists. Just before leaving Iran he was granted an interview with the Ayatollah Khomeini. That interview became the main component in Time's 1979 "Man of the Year" issue.

Van Voorst was recently on campus to address the faculty. He chose as his topic, "Freeze and Anti-freeze,"statingthat of all the achievementsof his journalism career.

Time's March 29 cover story, "Thinking the Unthinkable,"which focused on the threat of nuclear war and the growth of "nuclear freeze" movements. He noted that although most Americans are he's proudest of his instigative role in

byterian Theological Seminary,becoming one of the nation'syoungest chief administrators of a theologicalinstitution. Mulder was formerly assistant professorof church history at Princeton Theological Seminary. There he also served as assistant editor of the journal. Theology Today. Recently he edited a two-volume series on theology for the laity entitled. The Library of Living Faith, published by WestminsterPress. Mulder is the second Hope graduate to become president of the Louisville Seminary. Dr. John Vander Meulen, Class of 1891, headed the institutionfrom 1920-1931,and for the following six years was professor of systematic theology there. Before going to Louisvilleas a pastor in 1912, he was professor of psychology at Hope from 1903-1909 and also served Reformed churches in West Michigan. Hope has other connections with Louisville. Hope College graduates frpm the early part of this century Teunis Gouwens '09 and Peter Pleune '09 served as pastors in churches in the LouisvillePresbytery. Another Hope College graduate Henry Dosker, class of 1876, served LouisvilleSeminary as professor of church history from 1903 to 1926. Befpre Dosker became professor at Louisville Seminary, he served pastoratesin Reformed churches in Ebenezer, Grand Haven, and Holland, Mich. John Olert '39, another Hope graduate, currently serves on the board of directors of the Seminary. "Hope College has contributed greatly to the life of the academic and ecclesiastical institutionof LouisvillePresbyterian Theological Seminary and to the Presbyterian Churches in the area," states a Louisville Seminary spokesperson.

He said in his opinion the nuclear armament problem requires "a level of knowledge and participation that is unprecedented in American political history." Concerns must be converted into a political movement, van Voorst stated, and citizens must exert pressure on government officials to develop "a tangible positionthat can be negotiatedwith the Soviets." Van Voorst clarified his opinion that "the Soviet Union is the biggest threat to peace in the world," but, at the same time, he believesnegotiation should be pursued because it is in the best interest of both countries.The Soviets,like Americans,have compelling reasons for favoring a solution to the nuclear arms race, he contended. "I think it is incumbent on us to focus on the issue of nuclear arms as never before. Einstein said of the world, 'Everything has changed except our way of thinking.'I think it's about time we start changing our thinking," van Voorst concluded.
