at 8 p.m. in the Library lobby.
This four-member group plays wind and string instruments to produce a rich blend of
sounds much like bluegrass or good old rock and roll. According to Roy Gullane, a member of
the group, the music they play isn't in the traditional vein of Scottish music. "Purists made
the changes," he says. "They took the fire out of the music. We try to get the music back to
the people because that's where it all came from in the first place."
Tickets are $5 general and $4 for students and seniors and are available at CAB 305.

TRUSTEES, (Continued from Page 1)
The Trustees heard one of the first reports prepared by Marshburn regarding the
possibility of Evergreen tapping revenue generated from state-owned aquatic lands for use
in the construction of its long-awaited gymnasium. At present, Evergreen does not receive
monies from state-owned timberlands as do the other regional universities, Western,
Eastern and Central Washington. By working with a joint committee of the Legislature
which is currently reviewing aquatic lands management practices, Evergreen may be able to
garner some revenue it could use for Capital improvement projects, such as the gymnasium.
The Trustees also listened to concerns from the President's Cabinet about the proposed
creation of a chapter of WashPIRG, the Washington Public Interest Research Group, on
Evergreen's campus. The Cabinet summarized its final recommendations by saying any support
the Board gives WashPIRG should "allow students a clear choice regarding whether or not
they wish to make a financial contribution and establish WashPIRG as an independent chapter
free of state board control." Student representatives of WashPIRG asked that final action
on their proposal be postponed until the next Board of Trustees meeting on March 10.
S & A Board has one position open for a dynamic, self-motivated student interested
in government in the alternative mode. If you want to help serve your community and give
the S & A Board a better balance between the various student groups, please contact
1 Barnes or Lynn Garner in CAB 305, or call 866-6000, ext. 6220.
The annual S & A Survey is due to arrive in your home at any moment. Read it and find
out where some $400,000 of student money goes. Fill it out and return it to CAB 305 or one
of the drop boxes by February 25, 1983. The Survey is the best chance for the student
body to inform S & A of what it wants.
The Athletics Advisory Board, which meets regularly to discuss policy and program
development in athletics at Evergreen, is looking for interested students to fill two

Evergreen faculty member Dr. Don Chan directed a 55-piece orchestra which backed
performer and entertainer Steve Allen during the recent opening of the new Pantages
ater in Tacoma, February 12, and drew rave reviews from all present. Dr. Chan also
d the jazz band which backed Pat Finley, daughter of former Supreme Court Justice
d Mrs. Robert Finley of Olympia. "Don was a standout and clearly the star of the show,"
which attracted a sellout crowd, including representatives of Olympia's The Washington

Center Board and Evergreeners Richard Nesbitt and Judy McNickle. Olympia performers
playing with Chan included Chuck Stentz, Dave McCrary, Karla and Wayne Timmerman and
f. Irving Wright.
Tammy Lough, a work study student in the Facilities Office has been counting
lightbulbs as part of the college's energy conservation program. Tammy found 117
lights in the third floor lobby of the Library and 146 lights in the hallways of the
east wing of the Library third floor. Which brings us to a very important question.
How many Greeners did it take to change a lightbulb? Give up? Seven, but each brought
their own light bulb and they couldn't reach consensus on which one to use. So, you
want one more do you? Seven - three men, three women and one facilitator. Other less
wholesome answers can be found in the Office of College Relations.
~hat do you do with a door prize, when you don't know how to use it? Alumni
Coordinator Ellie Dornan recently returned from Spokane where she attended the CASE
District 8 conference. Ellie received one of the many door prizes -a football autographed
by members of the Seattle Seahawks. "How do you dribble this?" was Ellie's tongue-in-cheek
query to members of the conference, one of whom offered her $20 for the flawed "basketball."
Our apologies to Scott Stilson, who has one of the lead roles in the upcoming
production of "Pippin." We listed him as a graduate of Olympia High School -which of
course he is. But Scott is also an alum of The Evergreen State College, from which he
graduated in 1980. Our thanks to Assistant Academic Dean Ron Woodbury for pointing that
out to us.

A reminder:
Monday, February 21, is a holiday in honor of the birthday of President
George Washington.
There will be no classes, unless otherwise arranged by
individual programs, and campus offices will be closed. Events still taking
place are an EPIC film, "Bush Mama," and a Black History Month workshop on
"Black Hair and Skin Care" - see Happenings for details. Happy Holiday!

A grant project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities has produced "an in:redibl e treas-ury of resources, according to Evergreen faculty member and Ga 11 ery Director
iid vJhite.
- Whffe made his remarks during a presentation of the project's final report at a meeting
>f the Deans on Tuesday, February 8.
Funded in June, f982 by a $15,000 grant, the project compiled a bibliography of Chicano/
_atino art and culture; a directory of Chicano/Latina organizations, interpreters, murals and
ilms; and a slide treasury of more than 300 documented pieces of art.
Working with White on the grant were Pat Matheny-White, director of Resource Development and
:vergreen faculty librarian who worked with library staffers Lucy Enriquez and Robert Haft.
White lists ten Chicana/Latino artists and educators as project consultants. The key consultants were: Erasmo Gamboa, historian, University of Washington; and Tomas Ybarra-Frausto,
umanist, Stanford University. Gamboa and Ybarra-Frausto have written preliminary texts for the
exhibit and cataloque.
"It required a lot of detective work," White says. "Chicana/Latino art was invisible, not
to us, but to the Chicano community as well. We received a lot of cooperation from many
ana organizations."
The next step will come when the results of an application for a $98,000 implementation
grant to the National Endowment for the Humanities is known. "We should find out by Aoril ,"
hite says.
If approved, the grant would allow the organization of an exhibit which would be
shown on the Evergreen campus in Au~ust, 1984 for four to six weeks, and then begin travelling
around the country - first in the local region - and then to California, Texas a~d Illinois.
Friday, April 15, is the application deadline for three scholarships currently available

for $1,000 for the 1983-84 academic year.
The Edith K. Draham Scholarship, also for the 1983-84 academic year in the amount of $1,000,
is available to both new and continuing Evergreen students and based on financial need and a
demonstrated ability in fiction writing.
A $500 award for merit, the Carlton Morris Cooley Scholarship is offered for the 1983-84
academic year to a student of senior standing who has demonstrated excellence in writing the
En lish language and accumulated the equivalent of 48 quarter hours of credit in Enalish courses.

Various members of the faculty are now hard at work redefining the future role of humanities
in the arts and social sciences at Evergreen. Pro~pted by a concern that the humanities remain
strona at Evergreen, particularly in the face of possible curriculum changes, a group of faculty
have ~met the past two Wednesddys to discuss ways the humanities could be combined with the arts
social sciences, and natural sciences.
"For the first time in quite a while," said Provost Byron Youtz after attending the firs
ing, "I felt we were on the edge of a new invention for organizing the humanities at Evergr
that they could play a more central role throughout the curriculum."
It•s possible the European and American Specialty Area will be altered or dropped altogether
and replaced by something broader as a result of these continuing meetings which are bein~ led by
faculty members ~ud~ Martin and David Marr. New plans for the humanities and other a_reas of the
curriculum for t e 984-85 academic year will culminate at the Faculty Retreat, Aor1l 20-22.

The Seventh Annual fund raising/informational Phone-A-Than is set to kick off on Monday,
february 14, for eleven nights of telephone appeals in an effort to meet the Evergreen Foundation's
Annual Fund goal, which this year is $75,000.
According to Alumni Coordinator Ellie Dornan the goal for the Phone-A-Than this year is
$25,000, up from last year's $20,000. 11 We'll be calling 6,000 parents and alumni around the
country in an effort to meet that goal," she says.
One means of improving participation in the Phone-A-Than is through the challenge process
where one group of callers challenges another to see which can raise the most pledges. "The
Altmtni Association has already challenged the faculty," Dornan says.
The rest of the Foundation's funds will be raised by direct mail appeal and donations.
Currently 38 new students on campus are receiving scholarships from the Foundation. A successful
fund drive will allow the Foundation to continue providing funds for such needs as art and
library acquisitions, student and faculty research, and such student projects and pro~rams
as Earth Fair, Bridges and the very successful Summer Repretory Theater.
Volunteers interested in helping should contact Ellie at the Development Office, Library 3103,
866-6000, ext. 6565. Already the evenings of February 15 and 16 have attracted a larqe number
volunteer callers, but several other evenings still have openings.
An advisory board, to assist Evergreen in its Indian Teacher Education program, has been
appointed by President Dan Evans. The board held its first meeting, Friday, January 28.
The purpose of the~ard is to suggest curriculum needs and to help recruit Indian students
for the Teacher Certification Program that Evergreen operates in conjunction with the University
r---"-'----'-~et Sound, according to Aeademic Dean .Dr •. ·Barbara Smith.
to Lloyd Colfax, visiting member of the faculty at Evergreen, a Makah Indian,
and a member of the boar , the goals are more than just recruiting. "The board will deal with
education, and it will also address cultural problems faced by Indian students," he says. "We
want to see if we can increase the Indian population at Evergreen, but one of the real problems
is that education frequently separates Indian students from their culture."
Colfax says that Evergreen has the best chance to minimize the educational problems faced
by indian students. "Because of the way Evergreen is structured, it's more likely to complement
the Indian style of learning."
The board will hold information sessions in the community to acquaint interested participants
with Evergreen and its Indian Certification program. The first public session will be held at
Highline Community College in Midway on February 10 at 7 p.m., and will be hosted by Lee Piper,
director of Multicultural Student Services at Highline. The second session, set for February 15
at 4 p.m. in Poulsbo, is hosted by Mac Oreiro Jr., Indian education director at the North Kitsap
School District.
Members of the Indian Education Advisory Board, in addition to Colfax, Piper and Oreiro inude: Willard Bill, supervisor of Indian Education for the Superintendent of Public Instruction;
e Cantrell, cultural instructor for the Puyallup Nation; James P. Egawa, coorpinator of
ian Educ~tion for the Tacoma Public Schools; Bob La Fontane from ·united Indian~ of all Tribes;

Thelma Ma~chand from Nespelem; Bruce Miller, Title IV tutor at Shelton High School; Hazel Pete
from Oakv1lle; Yvonne Peterson from Shelton; Wally Strong from Toppenish; Mitzie Whitener from
Shelton; and Karen Strong from Seattle.
The program is especially encouraging applications from Indians who have been active in
classrooms as cultural inspectors and aides who wish to complete their formal trainino for
c~rt~f~cation . . Whenever possible, participants will be ~iven field placement in schoois with
s1gn1f1cant Ihd1an enrollment.
.stu~ents interest~d in enrolling in the Indian Certification program must fill out a special
appl1cat1on form, subm1t ~wo letters of recommendation, completie Evergreen's reoular application
process and take the requ1red competency tests. The first test is scheduled for March 2 of this
All steps must be completed by March 15 in order to receive a first priority for admission.
After that date, students will be accepted on a space available basis. For more information,
contact the Admissions Office at Evergreen, 866-6000, ext. 6170.
In spite of a 53 per cent increase in the number of special non-degree seekin9 students at
Evergreen, Winter Quarter enrollment is less than this time a year a9o.
However, increases
tallied in the categories of new degree seeking and part-time students make this quarter's enrollment decline less than half of the drop which occurred in Fall Ouarter of 1982.
Winter Quarter enrollment shows 2572 students registered for classes, comnared to 2637 for
the same period in 1982. Although there are 65 fewer students than a year aoo, this figure count
ers last quarter's trend which saw the headcount drop by 155 students to 2611 total.
Winter Quarter enrollment is looking very healthy," says Registrar Walker Allen, 11 When you
consider all the factors ...
Originally funded for a total FTE of 2555 in 1982·83, Evergreen is now bud9eted for an annua
FTE of only 2300, following the round of budget cuts and a 15 per cent reduction of funds during
1982. Evergreen's total FTE is now 2302.9 for Winter Ouarter, compared to 2435.7 a year ago,
still reflecting the impact of four budget cuts on the state's higher education .system.
Allen indicates healthy signs are the dramatic jump in special non-degree seeking students
from 183 last year to 279 this year, and the complementary 16 per cent increase in the numbers of
both new degree seekers and part-time students. New students increased from 172 in 1982 to 200
this winter, helped by increases in enrollees direct from high school and an increase in former
Evergreen students returning to school full time.
There are 573 part-time students en~olled at Evergreen this winter, compared to 495 a year
ago, a figure perhaps influenced by the students' median age, which went up from 23.5 last year
to 25 this quarter, indicating older students may be turning out in larqer numbers for courses.
Other statistics show the number of students from minority groups rose from 212 in 1982 to
230 this Winter Quarter, an 8.5 per cent increase. There was also a one per cent increase
overall in the number of resident students attending Evergreen.
A $27,000 grant from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)
to KAOS-FM to expand its service into the Grays Harbor area has been turned down by the coll~ge's
President's Cabinet.
The grant had previously been approved by theNTIA and the Communications Board but was
turned down by the Cabinet "because of the unpredictable availability of other resources needed by
the college in tight budget times, .. according to Dean Lary Stenberg.
Stenberg said that the immediate cost to Evergreen ooked minor but that the residual effect
on fundino was unknown. "We believe that some staffing and en9ineerinq costs miqht be needed in
the future," he said.
Vice President for Business Richard N. Schwartz has been in touch with Pacific Lutheran
University which operates station KPLU. Tn a letter to the NTIA, he said that PLU was willino to
meet the challenge of the expansion project and that Evergreen would endorse their forthcoming
application. In the letter Schwartz said, "Public radio will be well served if you approve their
(PLU) ~i11ingness to take on the former TESC obligation"

eep image." According to reviewers, "he continues to enchant and shake up audiences with his
eading with lively dulcimer self-accompaniment often usinq an array of mythological masks."
Connie Martin, who has toured extensively throughout the nation with Bly, conducting workshops
on storytelling and poetry, will also perform readin~s of her ooetry.

An ancient Greek play takes on a new twist when the feminist theater ~rouo Soiderwoman preents "Lysistrata Numbah" on Tuesday, February 15, at 8 p.m. in the Experimental Theater. This
contemporary adaptation of a 2400 year-old play by Aristophanes explores the oower of men over
omen through song, dance, mime and comedy. The plot concerns the women of the warrin~ city-state~
of ~reece who unite successfully to end a war by refusing to perform their "conjugal duties."
The feminist theater group Spiderwoman takes its name from the Hopi goddess of creation who
taught her people to weave. Likewise, the cast of five women takes the play "Lysistrata" and
weaves into it their own stories to create a new play. Their hi~hly oriainal production makes l ·
of stereotypes as they entertain through a kaleidoscopic ranoe of moods that arouse empathy,
tanding and "some good belly laughs."
"Lysistrata Numbah" plays for one show only at the Experimental Theater in the Communications
Building. Tickets are $3.50 for studrnts and $4.50 general, and are available at the Bookstore
and Yenney's Music in Olympia. For reservations call 866-6000, ext. 6070.

More than fifty faculty members met with Provost Byron Youtz Wednesday, January 26, in
the CAB to express their feelings about plans he has drawn up after reviewing the Long Ran9e
Curriculum Disappearing Task Force Report, faculty issues papers, and the results of a faculty
questionnaire survey he conducted in December.
Faculty member Mark Levensky voiced the concerns of many when he asked for more clarificatio1
and direction from Youtz's plan particularly concerning how Specialty Areas will be reorganized.
Levensky said he could discern two decisions made in Youtz's plan: to maintain the Specialty
Areas, although the number and quality remained to be determined, and to decrease the number of
coordinated studies while increasing the number of courses offered. Levensky stated that Youtz's
plan was a .. refusal to decide .. what the LRC Task Force and then the faculty as a whole were
originally asked to determineabout Specialty Areas's place and role in a restructured curriculum.
NO one here wants me or anyone else to tell them what the Specialty Areas will be, 11 Youtz
said. He thinks final work on redesigning the curriculum must be done in a series of approximations which will climax at this year's faculty retreat, and must continue to be an ongoing
..We must work very hard at this retreat, .. Youtz cautioned those present. 11 1 •ve
gested some Specialty Areas that may need to be replaced, and we need to move together
rd that.
We must look at the options and we must decide on Specialty Areas before the retreat...
-To handle the details of the immediate decision-making, Youtz will soon appoint a study
group for review of the college marketing plan, a forum of Deans and Convenors to plan a review
of the Specialty Areas which will be conducted in February, a task force to propose plans for
reorganization of the Academic Deans• Team, and a task force to prorose a possible role for
traditional academic divisions within Evergreen's tnterdisctplinary structure,
At two in the morning, a strange car cruises suspiciously around the Dorm loop and the
parking lots.
On another night, a rowdy group of teenagers loiters in the Dorm's social area.
Before either of these situations become dangerous, a call is placed on a portable radio to
Campus Security and officers arrive to check identifications, question off-campus visitors, and
head-off any potential damage, theft or crime.
The person who made the call is a trained member of Crime Watch, a volunteer program oncampus that is beginning its third year under the direction of Campus Security.
The proql'lam
has prevented a great number of thefts and property damage, especially in the Housing area, ..

says Acting Chief of Security



Russell explains that Crime atch training consists of a three hour orientation in
surveillance techniques and the use of the portable Security radio. Currently, Russell reports
there are 20 volunteers signed up for the Crime Watch program. Ten to 20 more are needed,
the ideal schedule calls for only one two-hour shift per month for each volunteer.
Interested volunteers can contact Crime Watch by callinq Gary Russell or Gil Cordova at

the ._uyallup Democrat who heads the House Ways and Means Committee. Representative hrimm
ment10ns Evergreen in explaining his idea for a school "for the best and brightest" of H~shinqton
In a story by Fred Olson of_the Gan~ett New~ Service (Daily Olympian- l/25/83), the
new head of the House Budqet Comm1ttee sa1d he th1nks the state should single out one of its
four-year colleges and try to make it one of the top underqraduate schools in the nation.
Representative Grimm clai~s th~ ~egislature ~hould end its strict policy of financial parity for
the state colleges and un1vers1t1es and prov1de one school with additional money for faculty
libraries and facilities.
Grimm didn't say which campus should receive the extra financial boost but he thinks the
University of Washington and Evergreen are top contenders.
He said he wouid be willinq to orovide extra money to one of the schools "so the students know the faculty, libraries and.faciiitie:
they have are among the best in the nation."
Recognizing the state's budget squeeze, Grimm said his drive toward academic excellence
could be financed by "redirecting" money already allocated to the state's colleqes and univer- :
Evergreen has received a $20,000 grant from the ~1etropolitan life Foundation f.Jr the develop·
ment of a health education program for students.
According to health education faculty member Barbara Cooley, who will serve as project administrator, the qrant will be used to design, develop and implement three to six self-paced
learning units (SPLU's) that permit students to learn at their own speed. The SPLU's will us
printed materials, computer software, and audiovisual aids to encouraqe lifestyle oractices that
promote health. The units will be used in the SPLU Center in the Seminar Buildinq at Evergreen
and at the Tacoma and Vancouver outreach campuses.
The grant proposal envisions the SPLU's being used in existing health-related academic programs, in referrals by professionals and faculty for specific health problems, and by students on
their own initiative, "Another one of the main purposes of the project," says Cooley, "i~ to expand the scope of traditional college health education programs to include older, return1ng s~u­
dents and students of ethnic minority groups. Students also will benefit as grant funds perm1t
the employment of two or more interns as project assistants each quarter."
A task force composed of students in the "Adult \4ellness: Lifestyling" program, which Coole~
teaches at the Vancouver campus, are preparing to survey students at all three campuses on the1r
perceived health needs, interests and problems. Survey results will be used to select and desiqn
SPLU's to meet those concerns by students in Cooley's spring program at Vancouver, "Proqram Planing and Evaluation in Health and Human Services."
"We want to show that colleges can develop systematic and effective health education programs," Cooley says, 'with the resources they have on hand such as students, faculty, Health
Services staff, facilities and curriculum."

Citizen lobbyist Jolere Unsoeld will discuss the question "The Legislative Process: Is It
thical?" in the second talk of the "Piece of My Mind" series on vJednesday, February 2, at noon
at the First United Methodist Church on East Legion Way in Olympia.
The "Piece of My Mind" series, which got underway in January with a talk by State Supreme
Court Justice Jim Dolliver, was organized to lloffer a community forum to exolore ethical and
moral issues which confront today's society," says Reverend Paul Beeman, who hosts the series.
Admission is free to the series, which is cosponsored by Evergreen and takes place at noon
on alternate Wednesdays during Winter Ouarter. The church will provide beveraoes for guests who
wish to bring brown bag lunches.
Unsoeld, who has lobbied in Olympia on behalf of citizen and consumer issues for better than
ten years, will focus on the custanary and eas~ly recognizible forms of the legislative process,
as well as those forms not so readily v1sible.
"We'll examine;' she says, "how the process actually works." To do so, llnsoeld will draw on
her past experience working with state government to ensure open meetings and access to public
records. An initiative she and others promoted was eventually passed into law as the Public
Disclosure Act in 197·2. Unsoeld used information provided by the Act to write two booklets, both
titled "Who Gave? Who Got? How Much?." which summarized the contributions of the 50 most vested
interest groups in Washington State to the elected representatives of the 1974 and 1976 Legislatures, respectively.
More recently, Unsoeld has been active with energy and environmental issues includin~ the
utility rate-setting process and prohibiting utilities from charging ratepayers for lobbying
and entertainment expenditures.
Unsoeld will conclude her talk at 12:50 with a period for questions and answers. Her
presentation will be followed by three others this quarter. Ever~reen faculty member Or... Rudv Martin
ll offer "A Defense of Secular Humanism" on February 16; State Superintendent of Pub11c lnructi on Frank Brouillet wi 11 discuss "Private School Growth: A Threat to Pub 1ic Education?"
n March 2; and on March 16, Saint Martin's professor Dr. Don Foran will analyze the ''Nonviolent
Struggle in America."
Questions about the "Piece of ~1y Mind" series may be directed to Reverend Beeman at the
First United Methodist Church, 943-2661, or to Mark Clemens at Evergreen's Office of College
Relations, 866-6000, ext. 6095.
~1ose Allison, the New York jazz/blues pianist who has created, accordinq to critics, "a
musical territory all his own," will perform at Everqreen on Thursday, February 3, at 7:30 and
9 p.m. in the Recital Hall.
Schooled in English Literature, but raised on Southern blues, the Tippo, Mississippi-born
Allison names Duke Ellington, Theolonius Monk and John Lee Hooker among his influences, while
many of today's younger pop stars salute his impact on their work. In addition to classics
like "Seventh Son" (his signature song} and "You Are My Sunshine," Mose also performs his own
famous compositions such as "Parchman Farm," "Your Mind Is On Vacation," and "I Don't ~lorry '&>ut
A Thing," as well as works by Willie Dixon, Hank Williams and Percy Mayfield. His music has also
been recorded by such popular artists as Leon Russell, The Who, The Yardbirds and Bonnie Raitt.
After performing in the Southeast during the early 50s, Allison qravitated toward New York's
sophisticated jazz scene and took up temporary residence as a sideman for Al Cohn-Zoot Sims,
Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan. In 1957 he struck out on his own and rose to national orominence
with the release of his legendary "Back Country Suite" album.
Since then he has released more than 20 albums, and has been acclaimed by reviewers as "more
an a bluesman, more than a jazzman; he's an all-around musician with a flair for blendin9 nonsense philosophy and big-city sophistication into a distinctive personal brew ... his notes and
emes conform to nothing but natural breathing and inner enerqy."
Advance tickets for Allison's performances can be purchased at Crackers Restaurant, Ra1ny
Day Records, D.J. 's Sound Center in Lacey and the Campus Activities Office, CAB 305, for $5
students and senior citizens and $6 oeneral. Tickets will also be sold at the door of the

The B~ard of Trustees ratified the contract with the campus local of the Washington Federation
If State Employees, contingent on two changes being made; and approved a proposed salary distribJtion method for exempt employees and faculty members during their monthly meeting Thursday,
January 13.
Trustees referred the contract back to the union with two requests: that the contract period
>e reduced from two years to one year, and that language referring to parties outside the contract
>e deleted from Article 15, item II, which concerns employee parking. If the union states acceptance
>f these two changes, the Trustees' motion implies ratification of the contract on behalf of the
:ollege without further action.
Trustees approved a formula for distributing the $96,000 available for salary increases,
~hich awards 3 percent raises to exempt employees who (a) perform well according to an annual
evaluation, (b) have been in their current position for at least 12 months prior to January 1983,
and (c) have not received a merit raise since the last legislative increase in October 1981.
~pproximately $8000 in extra funds will be placed in a special bonus category and awarded to
t employees based on their achievement. The Board also approved a revised faculty schedule
porating a 3 percent increase and extending experience years from 29 to 35.
In other action, Trustees approved revisions of the college's Facilities Use Policy, deferred
approval of a proposed reorganization of College an·d Comnunity Relations until their February
eeting, and requested a recommendation from Evergreen administrators on the proposed camous
chapter of WashPIRG, the Washington Public Interest Research Group, before placin~ it on the
agenda for action.
The Trustees will meet next on Thursday, February 10 in room 3112 of the Evans Library.
"I really wanted to write a book that was going to celebrate dead housewives and dead cleaninq
women in the same sense that most history books celebrate dead presidents and kinas," says Susan
Strasser, faculty historian at Evergreen; and now she's done it in Never Done: ~ History Of
American Housework.
Strasser will discuss her new book in a lunchtime talk on Wednesday, January 26 in room 110
of the College Activities Building. Published in May by Pantheon, Never Done has since been
critically acclaimed in newspaper reviews from coast-to-coast, including The Nation, The New Yorker
Ms. Magazine, and the Los Angeles Times Book Review; acclamation well-deserved because Strasser's
book is the culmination of 14 years of work, beginning when she was an undergraduate at Reed Colleg
"Originally, I was interested in the literature of advi'ce to Ameri'can women durin~ the···midnineteenth century," says Strasser, "but in studying cookbooks,- etiquette- books, women's maqa7ii"IP"and household manuals, I discovered I wanted to know what women did, not merely what they were tole
to do."
-Strasser's talk about what she discovered begins at noon, Wednesday, and is sponsored by the
reen College Community Organization (ECCO). Guests are welcome to bring a sack lunch, or
se lunch in the cafeteria before 11:45 a.m. Reservations may be made by calling Colle9e

To launch that public discussion, the M.P.A. pro~ram has enlisted professor emeritus
r. Bertram Gross of the City University of New Ydrk to deliver the conference•s first keynote

the M.P.


Evergreen's five-member Board of Trustees will reexamine the proposed contract with the
ampus local of the Washington Federation of State Employees, further discuss the proposed rer9anization of the Offices of College and Community Relations, and conduct a public hearing on
facilities use policy beginning at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, January 13 in room 3112 of the Library.
Consideration of the union contract follows an on-campus vote December 16 that attracted 174
f 182 eligible vot~rs and drew a 65% yes vote for a union shop.
That vote, which has been
ertified by the Higher Education Personnel Board, covers "classified employees allocated to nonIUpervisory classes and permissive supervisory classes ... " as detailed in the contract. It means
hat all those employees covered in the contract are "required, as a condition of employment, to
ecome members of the WFSE within 30 calendar days of the election ---January 15, 1983, or withn 30 calendar days of the beginning of their employment, whichever is later."
If the Board ratifies the contract Thursday, it will govern the activities of all affected
mployees; if the Board does not ratify the contract, it will be returned to the ne9otiating table.
Also facing trustees Thursday is consideration of a proposed combination of the Offices of
allege and Community Relations. President Dan Evans has already asked Development Director
ue Washburn to assume responsibilities as director of the combined unit, which she beoan doin9
anuary 3. Evans also selected Evergreen graduate Stan Marshburn (see followin0 story) to accept
redefined role as assistant to the president, which will include responsibilities for le9islative
elations and on-campus governance issues.
The Board is also expected to discuss a proposed association with WASHPIR~, the Washin9ton
ublic Interest Research Group. Student Annette Newman is scheduled to outline the benefits of
he non-profit corporation which seeks to 11 articulate and pursue the concerns of (colleqe and
riversity} students on issues of general public interest," such as consumer education, environental quality, human rights, energy and community affairs. It is separate from the newly formed
shington Student Lobby, which seeks to present student interests before the state legislature on
ch issues as tuition and fees, and residency requirements. At Evergreen WASHPIRG would seek
ndinq through a $2.50 supplemental fee paid by each student each quarter, while the Student
bby plans to seek a $1 supplemental fee per student per quart_e;....r_. _ _


Stan Marshburn, a 1975 Everqreen qraduate, has this week been named assistant to the president
by Dan Evans. Marshburn, who will assume responsibilities for leqislative relations and on-campus
governance, is currently employed as a fiscal analyst for the House \~ays and ~1eans Committee of
the Washington State Legislature. The post, which he has held for the past five years, includes
responsibilities for analysis of social service budget issues and aaencies and has required frequent oral and written presentations before the House.
The 30-year-old alum also
worked as a proqram analyst for the budget division of the
Office of Financial Management after completing his Everareen degree in economics and political
science. In his new post he assumes some of the responsibilities formerly held by newly installed
County Commissioner Les Eldridge; the remainder of Eldridge's duties have been assigned to Develop
ment Director Sue Washburn.
Security Lieutenant Gary R~ssell has been appointed acting chief of Security and Parkinq on
a temporary basis, according to his boss, Ken Jacob, director of Auxiliary Services. Russell,
who first joined the college staff in 1972 as a security officer, will remain in his new assiqnment until, says Jacob, "sometime during Spring Ouarter when a new chief will be hired."
Russell has already scheduled several training sessions for security as well as for other
campus offices. He will oversee implementation of a volunteer crime watch program within the next
few weeks and, later this quarter, plans to ask the campus to complete a questionnaire to help him
and others evaluate security services.
Jacob reports other changes have also recently occurred in Security. Three officers --Gi 1 Cordova, Wally Potter and LarV Savaqe --- have been temporarily promoted to corpora 1. "This
n allows us to better sche u e security coverage, especially durinq evening and weekend hours
a helps us overcome some of the problems caused by staff cuts forced by bud9et reductions,"
explains Jacob. He invites persons with questions regardina the new security chanqes to contact
Russell at extension 6140.
A series of weekly meetings devoted to "developing the future of environmental studies at
Evergreen" begins Wednesday, January 12 and continues weekly from 10:30 a.m. to noon in room 3033
of LAB I throughout Winter Quarter. Faculty Members Oscar Soule and Richard Cellarius have invited all interested faculty to meet with them to "flesh out details of and staffina for the proposed masters degree program in environmental and energy studies," and to shape under9raduate
offerings for 1984-85 and beyond in response to current deliberations and final conclusions by
the Long Range Curriculum Planning Disappearing Task Force.
The two intend to "alternate consideration of undergraduate and graduate programs week by
week and ultimately to develop a single integrated set of offerings." They urqe "the support and
involvement of all faculty who will be teaching environmental studies."
Part-time instructors are now being sought to teach Spring Quarter Leisure Education workshops. Sandy Greenway, director of the Leisure Ed program, says she's especially lookin9 for
persons willing and able to teach non-credit classes in such areas as: sports opportunities
for kids and adults; paper-making, sculpture, silkscreen and paper marbling; mushroom and
·ble plant identification, furniture repair and upholstering.
