On Alumni Day Hope remembered its founder, the Rev. A. C. Van Raalte, with the dedicationof Van Raalte Commons and the commemorative and contemporarysculpture,. "Ballyviktor."On May 8 Hope's 118th commencement was marked with the College's first-ever outdoor ceremony, staged at Holland's municipal stadium. Outdoor commencementproceeded as planned, despitechilly breezes. The Class of 1983 numbered 463. Approximately3,500 people attended the event — 500 more than could have been accommodated in the Holland Civic Center, where ceremonies were previously held. Honorary degrees were presented to the Rev. Arie Brouwer,general secretaryof the Reformed Church in America who will take up daties in Septemberas deputy general secretaryof the World Council of. Churches; the Rev. William C. Hillegonds,former Hope chaplain who is now pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor, and Dr. Kenneth ). Weller, president of Central College in Pella, Iowa. Commencement speaker was Dr. Arthur H. Jentz, Jr., professor of philosophy, who was' selected for the occasion by the graduating class. Jentz' message to seniors was to "affirm life." "It is only when we are personally addressed,grasped in the course of our playing and doing that we are inspired to creative -height and depth and make the playing our own." Jentz stated."Thus only can we go beyond tradition and conventional modes of thought, taking them into new modes of artistic,scientific and philosophicactivity. To do this is to affirm life beyond the settled patternsof thought and culture." The power to accomplish such ends is evident in everydaylife, Jentz told his audience. c courace. \vc arc ac-

This is that self-confidenceis a plant of slow growth and the 'road less traveled' sometimes makes for better poetry than living." Christ's promise to be always with his followers enabled them to become "a new breed of women and men," Hillegonds said, "Off they went, this small group of ordinary people, to do their extraordinary thing.

Alumni Donors Are Winners For the first time, Hope College alumni have been declared a winner in the sustained performance category of the U.S. Steel Alumni Giving IncentiveAwards program. Announcement of Hope as a finalist was made in April by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The program,now in its 24th year, recognizes alumni that have made a significant commitment to higher education. Hope previously was a winner in the improved giving category, but this is the first time the school has been honored for outstanding ongoing performance. Over a four year period from 1979-82 both participation of alumni and the amount contributed increased significantly. This year Hope alumni appear to be on their way to another record.Through the end of April there were 5,662 donors with contributions totaling $581,215. The goal this year is $600,000 from 6,000 alumni. Alumni donors to this year's annual fund are being given a free copy of the new Alumni Directory. This year's campaign con-

Peg Visser awoke on the morning of May 8 and Circumstance"to her sleepy roommates. A congratulatory cake and gifts adorned her College East apartment. This was no ordinary day. In less than six hours Visser would become a fifth generation Hope College graduate. Her long history of Hope alumni found expression during her younger days in the form of a unique lullaby, "In That Dear Old Town of Holland, Michigan," as well as frequent stories and memories of her parents and grandparents' days on campus. Graduation day began for Visser with lots of last minute packing and the arrival of her parents and grandmother,Mrs. Raymond Visser,from Plymouth, Mich. There were many introductionsas roommates' relatives all met and everyonetried to remember who belonged to whom. As the 11:00 baccalaureatehour drew near, Visser and her mother calmly worked to assemble the white collar on the gown which after today would find its way to mothballs. Luckily, they had allowed ample time — as usual the directionsmade things seem easier than they in fact turned out to be. Masking tape filled in where the instructionshad thinned out: Finally, Visser and her roommates, Christine Bruck of Naperville,111., and Beverly Bergstrom of Dolton, 111., made their final walk together across campus to Dimnent Chapel. The wind promised streaming tassels and billowing gowns. Students clutched their mortarboards and Visser contemplated the holding power of masking tape. But she also _ had time for some reminiscences. "I guess it was when I was doing my student teaching, a learning disabilities major, that all of a sudden it hit me that I was going to graduate. I remember my days as a freshman in Dykstra Hall — we did such crazy things." Her parents,both '54 graduates, fondly remember their days at Hope College. Robert Visser is a third generation Hope graduate while his wife Sue's Hope ancestery dates back to her great grandfather Adrian Zwemer. Pastor Adrian Zwemer was a 1857 Hope Academy graduate. His son, Sam Zwemer, a 1887 Hope graduate, was a missionary to Arabia and his son Raymund '23 was Sue's grandfather. "I never realized what a special honor it was to be a fifth generation student until I came here as a freshman," Peg says. She be{;an her freshman year as a quiet and

Peg attributes her exuberance and confidence to Hope College and her professors. "I think that the memories of the personable professorswill always stand out in my

mind." "It's a good feeling to leave your kids at Hope College," added Grandma Zwemer. "When we graduated, with teaching degrees, we had baccalaureateon Sunday, graduation on Monday and we were married on Tuesday,"expressed her mother. Visser, like her parents,will be married soon but she has a week to spare before she becomes Mrs. Brian Rideout. Peg and Brian, a 1982 Hope graduate, will begin their married life in Houston,Texas, where he will attend graduate school at the University of Houston and Peg will prepare to teach children with learning disabilities.

of this to clear up, I could be sitting aroiind for two years. I've advised myself, my parents,my family and my lawyers to just go ahead, to pretend nothing is happening. I can't stop my life for this because it's conceivablethat it could all be over this summer or it's conceivable that it could go on for years." Graduating senior Dan Rutt's uncertain slant on the future sets him apart in obvious ways from his classmates in the Class of 1983. Like them, he's made his plans. Unlike them, the year-at-a-glancecalendar of this young man from Dearborn, Mich., who is the first in the state to be indictedfor failure to register for the draft under the current legislation, has some important and determining dates that have yet to be pencilledin. These include the dates of a pre-trial and after that the possibility of a trial in federal courts. At this point, it's the time-frame that's uncertain,as government lawyers sort through the 3,000 pages of motions prepared by. Rutt's lawyer, James Laffertyof the American Civil Liberties Union, who gained reputationduring the Viet Nam War as one of the best draft lawyers in the country. Of course, the biggest uncertainty for Rutt is the all

outcome of the courts. The maximum penalty on conviction of the charge is five years in prison and a $10,000

fine. That could interfere substantially with

Rutt's plans-in-progressto study public health at the University of Michigan next fall.

But at this point, he's hopeful the maximum penalty will be avoided. Other cases in other states have set some precedents for dismissal or sentences of alternativeservice. Rutt was the thirteenthindictee among an estimated 700,000 young men who have not registered. Several others have since been indicted.

Lafferty intends to build his main defense around the argument of selective enforcement, Rutt says. Thus far, all those indicted have been public and outspokenin their resistence to the draft.

"Last fall I was preparing myself for prison," Rutt said in an interview shortly before his graduation from Hope. "Now, I just don't feel that prison is in my future. ... I was more affectedlast year, during my junior year. That was when I wrote most of my letters to the SelectiveService informing them why I had decided not to register. That's when I received most of my letters from them. It was more in my mind then as a possiblethreat to my future,even though everything was more possibility than actuality then. But what little actuality there was seemed more threatening." At the same time, Rutt says he is as prepared as it's possibleto be for the possibility of a prison term. He fully realizes the possibleconsequences of his act. He was indictedon Jan. 20. A public hearing convenedon May 27 and adjourned until July 1. Rutt says his reasons for not registeringare found in his Christian faith. His pacifist views are second-generation: Rutt was born in Haiti while his father, a Mennonite,was performing alternativeservicethere. He has frequently been frustratedthat his religious views are given light treatment by the press. "I respectthe, views of the political radicals, but I wish to be acknowledgedas coming from a different basis," he notes. Rutt says his' religious convictionscannot tolerate the concept of registration. He believes that because the government is asking young men to register without a classification system, the act implies an endorsementof militarism. "I see the choice as register or don't register and for me the issue is the military

Rutt would be charged. Lafferty's fees are covered by the ACLU. The Defense Committee'sfunds help defray additionalcosts in preparing the defense and some publicity expenses, Rutt says. He receives modest honorariumsfor his speaking engagementswhich cover his transportation fees and provide minimal reimbursementfor his time. Surprisinglyenough, aside from the speaking engagements,Rutt says he's focused little attentionthis semester on his upcoming dates with the courts.His courses in biology have been particularly demanding but he says his grades have never been better. "It sounds strange to say, but in many ways this is all being done without me. I mean that, of course, as a statement of the kind of support I'm getting.... I meet with my lawyers and they tell me what kinds of defenses are feasible— or maybe I ask for a few non-feasibleones. We talk about it and then they work out the 3,000 pages of details. "One of the decisionsI had to make was how much time I would devote to this issue.

Pacifism has History at


Dan Rutt '83 is certainlynot the first Hope College alumnus to receive widespread attentionfor his pacifist views. Probably the most heralded peace-seekerin Hope's history was the Rev. Araham Johannes Muste '05 (1885-1967). Three weeks before Muste's death he made a visit to Communist North Viet Nam which included an interview with President Ho Chi Minh.That was the last in a life s collection of frequently controversialactivities in internationalpeace movements, some of which, like many things past, have now mustereda nearly innocent respectability. He had protested in Red Square against nuclear testing, at the U.N. against the arms race, on the White House lawn against the Viet Nam War and in Times Square againstair raid drills. He was arrested for climbing over the barbed wire fence of a U.S. missile base. Beginning in 1948, he sent the InternalRevenue Service an annual offeringin lieu of income tax which consistedof a Bible, Thoreau's essay "Civil Disobedience" and a statement of his own pacifist principles. This practice resultedin a tax judgment in 1961, but it proved essentially meaningless since Muste lived on only a small pension. He refused to register during World War I and counseled other young men who were resisting registration. His positionson these matters, as well as those involving labor and race-relations' issues, alienatedMuste from the Reformed Church, in which he was raised and into which he was ordained as a minister.Even his alma mater largelyignored him until his death. Today the only tribute to Muste's life and work which remains on campus is an easily overlooked $1000 book fund establishedin his memory by the trusteesin 1974. It yields approximately $70 each year for the purchase of books which "promote peace and reconciliation." As Hope's director of libraries Harry Boonstra has noted in a review of a new biography of Muste (Jo Ann Ooiman Robinson's Abraham Went Out), forthcoming in The Reformed Journal: "Abraham Johannes Muste was much better known in New York and Washington than he was in Holland, Mich." That prophets and their own countries do not often have easy affinities is nothing new, of course. But it is interestingto speculate to what degree Muste's efforts have trickled back to places like Holland, where Dan Rutt says he has found "terrific support" for his

questions when they're asked. I haven't called people up asking for speaking engagements, but when I'm asked to do something, if I can fit it into my schedule, I'll do it. There are other non-registrantswho have become fulltime peace activists, putting out newsletters, doing their own defense work, advertising their speaking services. I don't see my role that way. I'm not the issue." On campus, Rutt, who founded the Hope for Peace consciousness-raising group during

sophomore year, has been open in his views but basically non-confrontational. "He is respectful of others' decisions, firm in his own decisionsand a very strong-minded person," says Chaplain Gerard Van Heest. "It's his nature to be flat-out committed to whatever he believesin. The same intensity he feels about registration is true of his concern for world hunger. Last summer, for example, he went to work for Bread for the World rather than securing a money-making his

job," Van Heest continues. "I don't share his views about registration. I think one should register and then pursue conscientious-objertor status if necessary. But I'm supportive of him because I think he's honest. If I didn't think so, I'd keep arguing the issue with him. "He's done his thinking and he's done his

praying. He knows his stand." Although he's absorbed occasionalcat-calls and receiveda few crank phone calls, Rutt believeshe's encountered far less antagonism pacifist v than did draft resisters of the Viet Nam era. “"When reading Muste's life one cannot escape a sense of both irony and deja vu. "I really underestimated peoples'support Muste's views on labor, race, and war were looked upon by mainline and orthodox for me in this issue.

Sequel to

A Spy Non-Thriller by Eileen Beyer Last spring Ion Agheana was splayed out by media throughoutthe state of Michigan and beyond as a former spy for the Romanian governrncnt. One year later, in the paring of a press release, the news was distributedthat the associate professor of romance languages had been named recipient of the Hope Outstanding Professor-Educatoraward by vote of the senior class. One could argue that Agheana'shonor was the direct result of the somewhat roughhanded media massage he endured last spring: his name was still in everyone's mind. What seems truer as one talks with his students is that the award representsa message, consciously conveyed, of support and appreciationfor a highly regarded educator who views learning as a means to discover a truth that almost always lies beyond the facts.

"The primary responsibility of the professor is to provide students with a critical

system of evaluation,"he claims. "And the system of evaluation cannot deal only with the facts. Facts are of the past. A system of evaluation needs a vision.It needs anticipation. It's not Ttiy criticalsystem — the thing is ours together as human beings. Everybody can see facts, but having vision is a different matter. In a way, having facts is like having experience.Why do we acquire experience? The only business of experience is anticipation." Those may seem lofty sentiments from one who spends much of his time teaching something as gritty as the Spanish language, and doing it for that matter within what might be viewed as a dense-pack method of education: the intensive,"Dartmouth Plan" of language

"They (Communist intelligence officials) play the numbers game. They figure that maybe 85 percent will totally disregard the idea of intelligence service, but maybe 15 percent will come through with some sort of thing. Everyone has a family left behind. And most come back a few years later for a visit. It's not that the intelligence people tell you to bring this, that or whateverback with you. But they come to talk to you and ask seemingly innocent things — Where do you live, is it an industrial kind of place, what kind of factories are in the town?

Agheana has never tried to hide his background from anyone and registeredwith the Justice Department in compliance with the Foreign Agents RegistrationAct passed nearly two years ago.

The press was a lot closer to the truth and bothered to check into things— like calling Washington before leaving the impression that any moment I was going to be whisked by helicopterto CIA headquarters and put on the rack." But through most of it, Agheana was able to maintain his good sense of humor and his old-world mannerliness. He brazenly wore his trenchcoat,grew a mustache and joked that he had been sent to Holland to rout out the Ultimate Tulip Bulb. He's been heartened by the unflagging support of the College and has said that receiving the H.O.P.E award touched him in an emotional way.

Father Figures



American Literature

by Kathleen Verduin In an old joke, one boy asks another if he believesin the Devil. "No," scoffs the first. 'It's just like Santa Claus. It's only your father '' If that story provokes guilty laughter, we shouldn't be surprised.Sigmund Freud, after all, believed that all jokes originate in our resentment of authority,fatherly and otherwise: it's a lot funnier if the man who slips on the banana peel is (when we're young) a high school principal or (when we're older) a high-ranking administrator or the Chairman of the Board. "I don't get no respect,"protestscomedian Rodney Dangerfield, eyes watery with reproach. And, heartlessly, we laugh every time.

But of course there's another side to the coin— and even the word calls to mind those quarters,in memory still bright, dished out of one's father's pockets for candy, movies, chores more or less willinglydone. At one of the Christian EndeavormeetingsI faithfully attended in my teens, the minister — in what may have been a desperate attempt to stimulate discussion — asked us to describeour conceptions of God. After the usual embarrassed silence, one boy — who in those days went by the incrediblename of Cosmo — confessed helplessly,"He looks a lot like my father." I remember being shocked. To suggest that God in any way resembled Mr. Van Dyke seemed dangerously close to blasphemy. Probably I thought that if God resembled anyone I knew, it was without doubt’fny father.But one look at Cosmo showed that he was dead serious. And since then I have come to realize that his response was hardly unique. If we occasionallysee our fathers as unjust monsters, punishers, arbitrarywithholders of cash, clothes, car keys, we also perceive them more often than not as godlike. American literature, which can be a mirror of American culture,reflects both attitudes toward fatherhood— and shows us a good deal about changing paternal patterns in our nation. Consider, for example, the catch phrase that surfaces every Thanksgiving:the Puritan Fathers. Do we call them that simply because they are ancestors,because they preceded us in time? Possibly: but some scholars think it's closer to the truth to say that fatherhood was a terrifically important concept in seventeenth-century New England, and that perhaps the early Puritans even created a kind of myth about themselves, stressingtheir fatherly authority in order to exert greater control. Certainly the Puritan father held an important role. In Puritan society the family was considered "a little church, and a little commonwealth" where the father was both minister, presiding over morality and religious instruction,and magistrate,keeping order. Little wonder, then, that Puritan ministers made frequent reference to parental authority in their

sermons. Cotton Mather

(1663-1728), famous for his part in the Salem' Witch Trials, underscored his admonitions with such compelling passages as this: "In the Torments of Hell, . . . How will you bear to hear the sentence of Eternal Judgment,and those that were your Loving, Tender, Heartbroken Parents acquiescing in it?" In the eighteenth century, this state of began to decline.Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), the great spokesman for the Age of Reason, remembered in his autobiography that his father had given him good advice,especially about industry and frugality. But Franklin,typical of his times, was affairs

not likely to worship anyone; as one historian notes, if Ben had met God on Milk Street, he would have shaken hands. The deterioration of fatherlyauthority was more painful to Franklin'scontemporary,the Massachusetts minister Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758), often called the last of the Puritans. Expelled from his church in 1750, Edwards tried to reproach his congregation with a familiarimage, that of minister as father. For Edwards, this still meant something;for his parishioners,his words were little more than worn-out phrases.

What Puritanism had come to mean by the beginning of the nineteenth century is obvious from the historical novels of the period — novels now mercifully forgotten,such as Lydia Maria Child's Hobomok: A Tale of Early Times (1824) or Catharine Maria Sedgwick's Hope Leslie; or, Early Times in the Massachusetts(1827). In both works, the centralcharacter is a young girl struggling against a repressivePuritan father, bigoted and insensitive.As critic Michael Davitt Bell has shown in a fascinatingstudy, these books and others like them reflect the nineteenth century's mixed feelingstoward the Puritan heritage;but they are also typical in their glorification of daughter over father.For despite the impression given by Virginia Slims, the nineteenth century was in some ways an Age of Women. In the 1850's, the popular periodical Home Journal announced with apparent confidence that "the present is the first century, and this is the first country in the world in which the female sex is . . superior to the male." Louisa May Alcott .

immortalized her "Marmee" and sisters in Little Women (1868), but interestingly enough chose to place her father in the background as an absent army chaplain.This relievedAlcott of presenting Bronson Alcott as he may have been in real life — an ethereal and impracticalparasite — but her book was well in keeping with the literary tastes of the day, which glorified and centralizedthe maternal role. Men, clearly, had come a long way (baby) from the unimpeachableauthority attributedto the Puritan father. Nevertheless, fathers continued to be important for nineteenth-century authors, both in literature and life. Nathaniel Hawthorne, who lost his father at four, developed a fascinationfor paternal figures that underscores his interest in his Puritan ancestors and continued throughouthis life. At thirteen, Herman Melville,author of the great Moby-Dick (1851), saw his father die raving and bankrupt, and may have resurrected those memories in his dark and disorganized novel Pierre (1852). Mark Twain (1835-1910)was another fatherless boy; and hrcn sii.v.g/;sxed.

culmination of a seed sown by the sight of his father's corpse. And Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), who described her lawyer father as having a heart "pure and terrible," referred, not surprisingly,to God as an "eclipse" her family called "their Father." Hn the twentieth century, psychology pervaded American literature as it did American life. Oedipus complexesand other emotional tensions between fathers and children were frequently treated in fiction— and in drama. Arthur Miller'sDeath of a Salesman (1949) and All My Sons (1947) exemplify this trend, and everyone remembers the domineering "Big Daddy" in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1956) by TennesseeWilliams. "Daddy's Girls" were also abundant, especially in F. Scott Fitzgerald'sTender Is the Night (1934), his highly autobiographicaltreatment of his wife Zelda's mental breakdown. In that novel, Fitzgeraldbroached the incest theme — as did, in the Sixties, the pornographic but lighthearted satire Candy (1964) by Terry Southern and Mason Hoffenberg, a little book whose recurring "Good grief, it's Daddy!" indicteda whole generation of pampered American daughters. But if dominant fathers continued to stalk modern American literature, their position was also increasinglyunder attack. In 1942, English critic Philip Wylie delivereda scathing expose (in Generation of Vipers) of what he termed "Momism": the not-so-subtleelevation of mothers, still in many ways the sacred cows of middleclass American society. As most of us remember, post-war popular culture tended to present fathersas decidely limited, amiable but bumbling.In the comics, Andy Gump was usually left no recourse but his helpless groan, "Oh, Min!" and Dagwood played an inevitablesecond fiddle to the serenely efficient Blondie. "Father Knows Best" was a fairly dubious title for the television series starringRobert Young and the maddeningly capable Jane Wyatt. And a look at much of contemporaryfiction revealsthe vestigesof this pattern. The male protagonistsof such authors as Philip Roth, Joseph Heller, and John Updike, sophisticated though these charactersoften are, betray many of the signs often attributedto maternal dominance: threatened by adulthood, they take refuge in boyish irresponsibility and what sometimes seems an undercover campaign against all females. Yet the idea of the monstrous father, like all monstrous fantasy figures, never quite dies out either. The troubled Sylvia Plath, who committed suicidein 1963, wrote of "Daddy" as an inhuman Nazi ("A cleft in your chin instead of your foot / But no less a devil for that"). More recently,horror artist Stephen

butcher ("Come and get your medicine!") and explored the problem of child abuse. Yet these last are exaggerations,creations of nightmare: most of us, thank God, would not find them in our own lives. More moving are the realistictreatments of fatherhood by American writers.Final Payments by Mary Gordon (1978) is a sensitive study of a daughter devastated by her father's death. Lost in the ambiguities of love and guilt, the central characterIsabel Moore eloquently expresses both her father's religion and something of the godlike quality so often attributedto fathersin our tradition:"For my father was sure: he had faith, he had truth; they had wired his muscles and made his bones like steel." "Fatherly presences," John Updike's term, is also the theme of much of his fiction. The Centaur (1963) recalled Updike's Pennsylvania childhood and especially his schoolteacher father, comic and defeated in the post-war manner, nevertheless subtly elevated to mythic stature.


his father's ill-

ness, Updike's autobiographicalcharacter Peter realizes, "My father provided; he gathered things to himself, and let them fall upon the world; my clothes, my food, my luxurious hopes had fallen to me from him, and for the first time his death seemed, even at its



remove of


a grave and dreadful threat." If Updike's fathersare often godlike,however, his sons never are; and more than any other American author he has borne witness to the sense of guilt, of moral inadequacy, which is the spoiled legacy of a godlike father. For Updike's more modern male characters,often adulterous and verging on divorce, their own fatherhood is a hollow imitation,they themselves not figuresof authority but "gutted shells." "You're not the man your father was," an old friend accuses the self-contemptuous Ferguson in the short story "The Egg Race" (1977). "I know," says Ferguson. "I'm sorry." In the literature of America, accordingly, find plenty of monster fathers, tyrants,executioners,we discover also the divinitywe stubbornly seek, the first object of our need to worship. Yet investingour fathers with such an identity, we pay the price of knowing them as men. "Which of us has known his brother?" Thomas Wolfe asks in Look Homeward,Angel (1929). "Which of us has looked into his father's heart?" One of the great sorrows of human life is that we cannot know our parents as perhaps we desire to know them — as, inevitably,our children will not know us. Literature, I have suggested,can be a mirror, reflecting what we already see; but it is also the glass we pene-

WOMEN'S TRACK Coach Russ DeVette's squad came within one event of defending two straight league titles, but fell short at the fifth annual MIAA track and field day, which ended Calvin 71, Albion 70, and Hope 68. The Flying Dutch had to settle for an overall second place tie with Albion after finishing3-0-1 in the conference and 5-1-1 overallin the dual season. Hope saw its 14 meet winning streak snapped at Albion by a 68-68 tie with the Lady Britons.

"Years from now, when you talk about this . . . and you will ... be proud." That twist on the famous tag line of Robert Anderson's drama "Tea and Sympathy" seems to fit as a benediction for the 24 Hope College students and facultymembers who took their version of the play all the way to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington,D.C., as one of seven national finalists in the American College Theater Festival. This marks the first time that a Hope production has been invited to participate in the national competition and only two other Michigan colleges— Wayne State and the University of Detroit — have made it to the nationals during the American College Theater Festival's 15-year history. "Tea and Sympathy" was performedon the Hope campus in late October under the directionof faculty member R. Scott Lank. Regional competition was held in early January at the University of Indiana at South Bend.

The American College Theater

Festival is a

joint effort of severalorganizations,including

the University and College Theater Association of the American Theater Association,the Alliance for Arts Education, the Amoco Companies and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Approximately450 collegeand university theater productions, involving more than 13,000 students and faculty members, participated in the regional competitions across the country. In Washington,the festival takes on the purpose of celebrationrather than competition. There is no first place winner and all seven schools receiveequal recognition. Individualcollegesfoot the bill for participation in the regional competitions, which in Hope's case amounted to $4,200, covered by the proceeds of two special performances on campus. The American College Theater Festival absorbs the costs of bringing the national winners to Washington to

crowds and standing ovations on April 21 and 22 in the Terrace Theater of the Kennedy Center. It was the only one of the seven participatingcolleges to sell out both performances, according to Susan Henry of the



A surprisepleasure was the appearance of playwright Robert Anderson who hadn't seen "Tea and Sympathy" performedsince 1956. Anderson attended Hope's April 22 performance by invitationof David Young, producing director of the ACTF. Young was so impressed by Hope's enactmentof the play, which opened 30 years ago on Broadway, that he made a special effort to contact Anderson in New York City to invite him to attend. The guest playwright handed out his compliments after the performance with warm graciousness and indicatedthat the performance had exceeded his expectationsof "college theater." "You were marvelous. This is a terrific occasion," Anderson told cast and crew assembled in the offstagegreenroom immediately following the closing performance. "I generally hate to see my own plays done because 1 have not been involved, but David Young told me of the marvelousjob you were doing with it and encouraged me to come. "You held your audience. ... I wasn't fidgety at all.” Anderson autographed playbills and requested one of the specially made "Tea and Sympathy" T-shirts which company members sported during most of their off-sMge hours in Washington. In perfectharmony with ‘playwright'sprotocol — the person who writes the play doesn't talk to the actors except to convey general complimentsand pleasantriesso that the sanctity of the director/artorrelationship, is ' held — Anderson reserved his criticalcomments for a conversation with Hope's Lank. He thought the final scene had been played too slowly (Lank agreed) and he objected to the added element of young Tom Lee calling

There was only one afternoon free for sightseeing. But no one grumbled, at least not with any intensity."We know why we're here and what we have to do," actress Dawn Tuttle noted. And when the lights went up, they did what they went to do, providing two nearly flawlessperformances. "There was a lot of nervous energy in the first act on opening night," Scott Lank noted. "I anticipatedthat, but not to the degree that it-happened. But I don't think the audience noticed, and it settled down for the other acts."

"Beyond that, our participation has obvious benefitsfor the recruitment of students to our program.And we desperately need that." A set-on a stage may create its own reality that is constant despitethe miles, but, even so, things seem to play differentlyin Washington when compared to Holland. "At Hope, people come to see us, the actors who are their friends. It's us they're seeing on the stage," noted Judy Plazyk, who as Lilly Sears in her crimson ballgown created one of the play's more memorable scenes. "Here in Washington the audience has come to see the play and their attentionwas the play. It made us feel more professional."

The Hope senior who portrays the complex and endearing characterof Laura Reynolds in the Hope production of "Tea and Sympathy" lives just outside Washington in McLean, Va. In recent years she's visited the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts frequently to sample events of particular interest to a would-bedirector and actress.

Tuttle's routine was to arrive at the stage door in Washington at 5 p.m. Her first task was to wash her red-blonde hair and sculpt it with setting lotion to achieve the waves of the 1950s. She applied her own makeup and then joined other company members for warmups, a time of body and voice relaxation. During the final half hour before performance, she and severalothers gathered for prayer. Then it was on with the distraction game — chatting, cleaning off her makeup table, filling the time until the 7:30 curtain. Some adjustments in voice and movements were necessary in the Terrace Theater, which seats about the same number as Hope's DeWitt Theater but is narrower with highly pitched seating. Despite these considerations, Tuttle had no trouble bringing Laura to life in

And when it was all over on Friday night, she worked alongside everyone else in striking the set, a task not complete until approximately 2 a.m. The schedule left little time for nervousness, but it slid in during those few free minutes before each night's performance.

There is one Picasso and one Dufy, both modest in size and simply framed. The people who come in and out and hover around speak in that modulationthat professes intimacy in every subject. The place is absolutely unctuouswith understatement. But the view from the single broad window is blatantlyugly — a few rows of railroad tracks, grim with gravel and papers gone Its


The disparitymakes fitting setting for this 1959 alumnus and former Hope College administratorwho is now vice president for developmentand public relations at the Art Institute of Chicago and has one hand in the supposedly dirty business of raising money and another in the easily elevated enterprise of creatinggreater public awareness and appreciationof the arts. TerMolen'sexperience has convinced him that there's nothing crass about cash and nothing automatic about maintaining an aestheticlegacy. He has no uneasiness about being an asker. "My feeling is that if you really care about an institution," he says, "then being asked to become involved in it is something that's positive— because of the good that's going to come out of that involvement, such as the acquisitionof a work of art that generations can enjoy. I feel we have an appropriate story to tell. That's the only way I can express it." Another myth about fund-raising dispelled by TerMolen, whose experience includes development work at Hope in the mid-1960s and at SouthernMethodistUniversity in Dallas,Tex., between 1968 and 1976, is that success is the result of some faintly surreptitious means of pulling wallets out of prospects' pockets. "I have never thought there were any secrets to fund-raising.There are certainlya number of important elements that help to encourage people to support an institution. The first is what I call the climate for giving — how people feel about the institution, what we can do to encourage them to have very positivefeelings about what we're doing. But I think when it comes down to the real essence,success in fund-raising is involving people. If you get people involved to the point that they care about what's happening, then in all liklihoodtheir financial support will follow." But it's not simplicitywithout its science especially of late as government spending reductions have resulted in smaller budgets for the federal and state agencies that assist institutions such as the Art Institute. There is a spirit of scrambling afoot and most institutions are gathering together methods,which, although not capable of artificiallyinducing those warm-fuzzy feelingsthat apparently precede generosity,do advertisea catalytic potential. This is nowhere as evident as in the direct-mailapproach. Under TerMolen'sdirection, the Art Institute utilizes a lot of market research.The results are what he term# "the latest in sophisticatedmarketing techniques"— tried-and-fruetriggersfor the unconscious. How many pieces of paper saying about the same thing in differentways will be stashed into each envelope, what colors will be used and where, how much time allowed for response?— all of these are decisions no longer left to inkling or whimsy. Recently the Art Institute sent out a mailing of 500,000, offering membership in time' for the show of Vatican art slated to open in late July (essential privilege:free and guaranteed admission). TerMolen expects,again on the basis of market research,that the return mail will bring in 7,500 new members. Settine numbers goals and then meetir

squad and Little All-Americanin 1958. When he came to the Art Institute seven years ago, the books were swimming in the red sea of a $1 million budget deficit. TerMolen is anticipatingclosing the fiscal year in June with the sixth consecutive year of balanced figures. Annual support to the institution has increased from $740,000 to $2.75 million and total membership has risen from 55,000 to 70,000 — the largest of any art museum in the world. Earlier, at SMU, he worked with the chancellorin spearheading one of the largest fund-raising programs in the history of higher education— a $159.8 million effort, and during his tenure there the institutionranked among the top 10 universitiesin the nation in the amount of privategift support received. At Hope he rose rapidly in the College's developmentdepartment, assuming the directorship in 1967, one year after he , from admissions work into this then-new administrativearea. With such successes handy in his history, it's little wonder that TerMolen is undaunted by his task at hand: a $50 million campaign launched in April with the primary goal of a new wing for the Institute's 20th century holdings. Despite all the emphasis on digits in his work, TerMolen commendably brings in other standards to measure his job satisfaction and that of the 30 people who comprise his staff. "There are a number of standards all of us use to measure success.Do we enjoy what we're doing, are we happy doing it, do we enjoy working with our colleagues,is the work environmentconducive to positivesituations, how do those above us respond to what we're trying to do? At least from my perspective, those are very important issues. Obviously,one has to look at results as well, but the results have to be measured in more than just dollarsraised. ... I think my greatest satisfaction comes from laying the groundwork and implementinga professionalprogram that's going to be ongoing in terms of providing needed support for an institution. "I think of the Second Century Club which we began at Hope in the '60s. I still have on



with Chicago corporations and foundations, and publicizingthrough methods such as a recent press conference to announce the acquisitionof two of ImpressionistClaude Monet's haystack paintings,bringing to five the number, of this 15-painting study of light now owned by the Art Institute of Chicago. An especiallyrewarding aspect of TerMolen's work is that he has greatly expanded his scope as an arts appreciator.When he talks about the Monets, there's pleasure that the press conference resultedin a half-page story with full-color art in The Chicago Tribune; there's also pleasure in having them at hand. Because he sits on all acquisitioncommittees ("We have a lot of committees. Oh boy, do we have a lot of committees!"), he has had more than a smattering of arts education. He's developed a special love of Impressionism, hard to avoid at an institution which has one of the five finest collections of French 19th and 20th century paintings in the world. There are as many art books in his office as books on fund-raising and marketing. That's partly to insure that he knows what he's talkingabout to the Institute's varied constituents; but it's obvious it's also to indulge his interests.

While he takes full advantage of his soulsoothing surroundings, TerMolen has no hesitation in defining his work as stress-ridden. "There's no question that there's a great deal of stress. And yet, I think what one has


The vita indicatesthat TerMolen has never had an aversion to checking into roads not taken the first time out. After leaving Hope he spent a year in medical school at the University of Michigan.He changed over to political science and received his master's in 1962. From there it was two years with the Central Intelligence Agency in Washington, D.C., then joining the Hope staff, first in admissions work, later in development. "It was good for me to leave Hope College and go to SMU in the Southwestbecause it forced me to grow and be open to different ideas in a different region — and all that goes with that. Moving back to the Midwest,to Chicago, and being in a culturalfield has also been good. I've had to learn to go back and forth from the art side to things like dealing with the city and everything that relates to this kind of internationallyknown institution." TerMolen firmly believes that the arts should be supported by the people who care about them and that the nation's second largest city needs a superb art museum. His work is cut out for him and in large part will determine which year is chiselled into the cornerstone of the Art Institute's new wing. "What we're building is more than just a wing," he says. "It's something that long after a Larry TerMolen is gone is going to be there providing for the people for this region.
