Accading to this agreement, said
Paulsen, -the State will operate the prison

The state will transfer between 250 to

and it.happens frequently in the Olympia area.

A numbff ot citizens groups are apprehensive about what will become of the
4,413 acre island. The groups include:
Save Old Steilacoom (SOS), the Audobon
Socie!'{ and the Washington Environmental Council lWEC).
The SOS group is comprised of people
from tl-e town of Steilacoom and the
surrourding area. Ferry access to the
McNeil Island Penitentiary is from Steilacoom. Mayor Dunkin, of Steilacoom, said
citizens are worried about the extra traffic
that will be caused by the prison's expanded use.
Maycr Dunkin felt that state prisoners
differ from federal prisoners. Federal prisooers, said the mayor, are usually serving
time fcr white collar crimes and are from
different parts of the nation, which means
few visitors. State inmates, he said, may
include violent criminals, and since they
are local that would mean more visitors
going through the town. The mayor said
the added traffic would cause a burden to
their small community.
SOSsought an injunction to stop the
state from using McNeil Island Penitentiary for state prisoners, but it was denied
by Judge ,\,\c:Cutcheonat a hearing last
Paulsonsaid that the prison needs
work. The frst ninety prisoners, all federally approvl:ll minimum security risks, will
be plurri:Jers,carpenters, welders and
electricians. They will be put to work, said
Paulson, "'fixing holes in the walls and
ceilings an:! other minor work, which they
will receive pay for"




Early winter quarter, Provost Byron
Youtz charged a D.T.F. to examine the
idea of changing Evergreen'sacademic
calendar system from quarters to semesters. The task force has outlined major
arguments for and against such a switch.
These are presented below.
Since few students participated on the
D.T.F., the members feel it is vital that
the arguments on both sides of the issue
be studied thoroughly, and that students
comment on what could be a major
change at Evergreen. To solicit comment,
the committee will conduct public hearings on Tuesday, March 10th, in the 2nd
floor lobby of the CAB building. Hearings
will be in two sections: 11:30-1:30 and
The committee must forward their recommendation by early April and vote on
it at the April 8th faculty meeting.
If a semester system was adopted,
classes would run for about fifteen weeks,
instead of eight to ten as they do now.
This would mean that breaks between
classes would last about a month, and
that spring classes would end by mid-May
(thus allowing an early start on summer).
Faculty would stay an extra two weeks to
prepare for the subsequent fall quarter.
Summer school would probably begin in
the second week of June and run for an
eight to ten week session.

Arguments in Favor of the Modified Early
Semester System
l'v1oretime and energy would be avail-·
able for teaching and learning because of

less time given to start-up· and wrap-up
activities. A full week of instruction would
be gained by eliminating one evaluation
week. The traditional disruption caused by
students entering late or changing
programs would be remedied by having
it occur twice instead of three times. Also,
evaluations would have to be written onlv
two times a year. T ,e semester system
would reduce the size of the transcript.
Expensive and time consuming activities such as program planning,' advising,
academic fairs, contract negotiation and
registration would occur only twice a
year. This would even out the work of
program secretaries and registrar staff.
With such an adjustment, program secretaries-would probably be able to help
faculty in teaching and research. Savings
may allow for more support to areas that
are nCM'being cut, such as counseling.
A switch from three terms to two,
rather than allowing fewer options to
students, would probably increase their
options because the present system of
one-three quarter long programs results in
many impossible curricular connections.
If the termination of one program doesn't
coincide with the beginning of the next
one a student wishes to take, they must
drop the first program early, drop out of
school or enroll in a program they are not
satisfied with.
By having a month long winter vacation, students would get a longer relief
from the pressures of school, and
wouldn't have to take a full quarter off.
This would improve the rate of student

retention and help students lose less time
getting their degrees. Winter break
would also give students more time to
catch up on incompletes.
In most colleges, faculty can do research while teaching. This is difficult at
best at Evergreen, and the long break
would facilitate such research. Also,
faculty could savor additional pleasures
of a month long vacation: study, travel,
or simply relaxing.
The' break would permit program secretaries and Registrar staff to finish all the
work from the fall before the next semester begins (probably eliminating overtime
work at the Registrar's office.).
Students would be able to make more
informed decisions about what programs
to take because program planning for fall
semester would take place during the last
two weeks in May. There would be detailed program descriptions, reading lists,
and schedules available in early summer.
This will aid summer recruitment of
Early program planning would result
in better program plans. Faculty members
are now forced to donate unpaid summer
time to such planning because certain
matters, e.g. book orders, cannot be put
off until Sept. 15. Such summer planning
is difficult to arrange because of faculty
vacation travel. Semesters would make
summers more secure and productive. By
planning their programs in May, faculty
members will be able to better understand

wildlife if the Island remains a prison, because that means public access will
remain restricted. This means less damage
to the wildlife ecosystems than if it was
sold to de-..elopersand given unrestricted
public access Some of the inhabitants of
the Island include 380 seals that reside in
a cove off the Island, Bald Eagles,a rookery of 79 Great Blue Heron nests, and
10,000Wigeons which use the Island for a
winter feeding ground.
There is currently a Senate Bill (3790) in
the works sponsored by Senator Irving
Newhouse,Senator Margaret Hurley and
Senator Bob McCaslin, which exempts the
the state from filing an environmental·
impact statement on the effects of
reopening the penitentiary. "The state has
upset many citizen groups by the highhanded methods they have used," said
Mayor'l<in,"If they don't want to do
,omething, such as an environmental
impact statement, they just pass a bill."

Bill Would

Theresa Connor

Surrogate motherhood arrangements ,rtificial insemination/adoption transJctions-may soon be illegal in Washington.
House Bill 592, introduced by Rep.
Phyllis Erickson, D-Puyallup, would legally
classify such arrangements as baby selling-a f~lony_in this ~ta~.
- Earlier, there had been some question
as to whether the present state statute
banning baby selling would apply to
surrogate motherhood arrangements. Last
week in an interview with CPJ, former
State Representative, Rick Smith, who
co-~ponsored the bill that made baby
selling a crime, said that such arrangements had not been considered when the
bill was passed last year.
Erickson introduced the bill outlawing
surrogate motherhood arrangements last
Friday after consulting with legal aides
and other legislators. The bill is cosponsored by Rep. Mike Padden, a lawyer,
and Rep. Brad Owens of Shelton. Erickson
said that many of the legislators she has
spoken with have supported the bill.
Some members of the public feel differently. Erickson was on KVI Radio after
the bill was introduced. She said that
many people who called in objected to
the bi II on the grounds that surrogate
motherhood arrangements were private
agreements between two consulting
adults, and that the government should
not be involved.
Erickson pointed out that surrogate
motherhood arrangements, like baby selling, are more than private transactions
between two adul,ts because they involve
a third party-a child.
··1 think we need to have it out and
discuss it in a public manner," said Erickson. "If it doesn't make it through the
legislature-well that's just the way it is.
At least it will have been discussed."
Rep. Erickson said that she has been
contacted by people who were concerned
about a surrogate mother service being
organized by Goodard and Wetherall, a
law firm in Redmond.
"The reaction I have been getting from
people," said Erickson in a11 interview
with the Seattle P-1,"is that . this is

Olympia Beer: Earnings Co Flat

Seawuiff Launched
by Emily Brucker

by Andy McCormick
Despite reporting a slight increasejn
beer sales, the Olympia Brewing Company's earnings dropped by 58% in 1980. In
addition, last year's net income of $2.78
million was the lowest in a decade. And
to make matters worse, Olympia Brew
slipped behind Stroh's and is now the
eighth largest American brewery.
In a January news release James Senna,
President of Olympia Brew, emphasized
the upturn in overall beer sales. Although
part of the increase can be attributed to a
beer industry strike in Canada, total domestic barrelage was about the same as in
1979, Senna said.
• This compares to three years of successive decreases in Olympia Brew's
domestic beer sales. And, Senna said, the
1980 increase in sales "comes at a time
when industry growth is relatively low and
competitive activity very high. To a significant degree, 1980 volume reflects the
success of a very aggressive marketing
effort-an effort that will continue in
But a, a recent article in the Daily
Olympian point, out, Olympia Brew\
increased barrelage to b.09 million is

somewhat less impressive when compared
• to 1976's total output of 7.16 million.
In order to reverse the trend of decl ini ng sales the company increased its
marketing budget by 40% in e;l.rly 1980.
The money spent here, according to
Olympia Brew spokesman Mike Kilpatric,
is the main reason why earnings decreased
by 58% when production was up. Asked
how much money 40% of the marketing
budget is, Kilpatric said the company •
does not release such information.
Kilpatric also declined to comment on
when Olympia Brew expects its increased
expenditures on advertising to pay off.
More details will be available in April
when Olympia Brew releases its annual
report for 1980, he said.
One major advertising campaign iniated during 1980 has already been discontinued. According to Senna, the
campaign, designed to promote a new
super-premium beer, Medallion, was not
viable because a poor economy turned
consumers away from higher-priced
premium beers. Senna told the Daily
Olympian that new brands like Medallion
"are not the kind of things which will
make or break a company."

On December 26, 1980 Olympia Brew
began a major new advertising campaign
aimed at increasing sales of the Olympia
brand, the company's biggest selling label.
The campaign started in Washington state
and then, a month later, went national
with commercials shown during the Super
The campaign uses magical creatures
called Artesians who, like elves, protect
the waters that make Olympia beer taste
good. The "tongue-in-cheek" commercials
are being augmented by the distribution
of bumperstickers that carry the slogan,
"I seen 'em."
The Daily Olympian quoted Denis
Peterson, manager of the Olympia office
of Foster and Marshall Inc. (an investment
firm) as saying that the brewing company's financial problems hinge on its
having an ad campaign that will be
successful. And success, Peterson said,
hinges on the little Artesians right now.
While images of Artesians beam· into
America's living rooms, Olympia Brew
continues to produce 450,000 gallons of
beer a day. Despite the earnings drop in
1980, none of its 690 employees have
been laid off, Kilpatric said.

Union to Give
Students Clout
b, [l1Labeth John;on
Last Thursday, twenty ,tudents met to
discu» what could become the most sub,ta11tIc1I
rhangf in student representation
evpr known ;it evergreen: the formation
01 a ,tuclf'nt union. Such unions exist at
virtuillh c1!I othPr rol leges and universities,
but one has never-been estab I ished here
/\\ilnv feel that with the enrollment growing, a student union is vital.
'>tudents attending the meeting decided
that all decisions would be reached in a
dPmocratic way by voting on the issues
rather than roming to a consensus. This
deCl',ion came because they felt it would
be difficult t,) reach consensus with the
growing number of students expected at
The group felt that student advocacy,
student services, and local politics are the
most impaiant things for the union to get
involved in, and decided they wanted to
lOOrd1natetheir efforts with the Student
Information Network.
'\!though the Student Union is not yet
an off1c1alorganization, and is still in the
planning stage, John Howat, one of the
union's organizers, said, "We're confident
of the union's likelihood to come together
and to succeed as a viable decision
making body." He also said that most
students are enthusiastic, and have no
doubts that the union will grow and
progress in.tQ__
strong organization. John
said that the. union has the potential for
students to''gai'h•more power over what
happens at Evergreen.
The:-sruclent Union is considering keepi ~ a file of all the student evaluations of
the faculty members at Evergreen. This
will enable students to find out other
students' opinions of faculty members
when the-( are deciding which courses
they want to take. Students may be able
to tell when a teacher is incompetent
when they continuously receive bad
evaluations f:·om their students. They feel
that right now nothing is being done by
the deans, the administration, or the
board of trustees about teachers who for
years have conmtently received poor
tcvaluat1ons.If something were done
about this, 11might serve as an incentive
for teachers to do a better job. Howat
added that there are a lot of people who
~ply tor new teacnIng positions ar cve't!feP.n, people who may be better qualified
to teach than some of the present faculty.
The next Student Union meeting is
Thursday, March 5 at 4:00 in the Library
3200 lounge. All students are urged to
attend. The decision of whether cr not a
student union forms at Evergreen, thereby
giving the student body the clout it's
illways lacked, can only be made by the
,tudents themselves.

Evergreen filed suit against the VA.
when it was announced rhat the "seat

Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The

rolled and -the discouragement of future
aprilicants. Those fears have since lapsed
William Jackson, Evergreen Veteran's
Coordinator, told the CPJ that enrollment
hasn't really changed as a result of the
"seat time" regulation. Enrollment of
veterans is down slightly, but this is a
trend occurring at all colleges.
"I he only major difference brought on
by the 'seat time' rule is to make it impos,iblf' for veterans to take internships or
individual contracts and still collect full
Y.A. benefits," said Jackson. "Most of our
students using individual contracts
switched to a coordinated studies program."
Jackson said that not all veterans have
forsaken internships or individual contracts because these are often necessary
in pursuing career goals. In cases like this,
the Y.A. covers the cost of tuition only.
The biggest problem the court ruling
created was the confusion in students'
clas n)om status. Each quarter brings a
volley of questions from students wishing
to know how their program stands in
relation to the "seat time" rule. Yet bigger

problems are created by students who do
not inquire. "We had one woman who
dropped out of school," said Jackson,
"because she thought she was ineligible
for benefits. She later reapplied and discovered that she had never lost her
eligibility in the first place."
To determine whether the "seat time"
rule is being adhered to, the Y.A. requires
classroom schedules of each student who
receives benefits. This creates a lot of
work for the Evergreen V.A. office because classes change each quarter. Efforts
to collect schedules are often hampered
by the slowness of the faculty to submit
classroom times.
Jackson could only speculate about a
change in Y.A. benefits under the Reagan
Administration. "Defense budgets are
rising," he said, "and the Federal government realizes that an awful lot of veterans
have been unhappy about their benefits
in the past. I think that to induce more
people into the armed forces, benefits will
have to improve. I'm sure that the Re.:i_gan
Administration has realized this too.''-

Reftections on a Saint
(Though He'd Deny It)
"Oh, may I join the choir invisible of
those immortal souls who live again."
George Elliot

by Kenneth Sternberg
I came to Evergreen for reasons other
than Willi Unsoeld, but would have arrived sooner had I known more about
him. My first program was Outdoor
Education; something that Willi had pioneered. I was looking.forward to working
with him, but fate determined that this
was one of the few times Willi would
teach another program. Although I felt a
loss, I was sure I would get to know him
in some other way.
That fall, Willi lectured us about the
Mt. Everest expedition. This proved to be
dangerous because no one in the room
felt the same about their lives after the
final slide clicked away. To hear Willi
speak about anything was to be spellbound. But to listen to him casually
discuss one of the greatest struggles and
achievements known in mountaineering
history was when the words inspiring, or
religious, could safely be used. Willi's
astounding mixture of humor, pragmatism,
joy and absolute love for living made me
feel _ashamedof thinking I had any serious
It was months before we spoke in
depth. Many times I had approached him,
repeating what many had told him in the
past: I didn't know him, but had a strong
desire (overwhelming need was the unspoken feeling) to get closer to him. "Well
Ken," he said with his booming voice, and
those gleaming eyes that few people seem

to have, "come around to my office and
we'll talk."
Things went on like this for quite
awhile. I'd see him often, walking across
Red Square. If we spoke at all, it was
briefly; more often than not while he was
walking to one of his pressing committments. Chronically overextended in his
obligations, Willi could rarely say no to
those who sought his advice and wisdom.
Although Willi had experienced severe
personal suffering that may have destroyed others, his overwhelming passion
for life remained untouched. At least
While becoming friends with his son, I
realized how deeply ingrained this passion
was in the entire Unsoeld clan. I often
lamented on how my own life seemed so
empty compared to theirs. A friend of
mine observed that while Willi's children
had been encouraged to live fully from an
early age, I had probably been encouraged
in the opposite direction. There seemed
to be some truth to that.
Willi and I finally did speak at length.
Two weeks before his trip to Mt. Rainier
I vislted his office and we spoke of things
which concerned us:-Evergreen's increased
conservatism, learning (real learning) and
the limits that affect growth. At one point
he told me that he was angry with whoever had treated me in such a way that I
was so tense and rigid. As usual, his ob• servation was stunningly accurate. The
rest I can't remember, but I do recall his
laughter, and that when I left I felt much
closer to this wonderful man. The time
was too brief, but we agreed to meet

When I heard the news of his death I
absolutely did not believe it, and told the
person who told me that if he was joking
he'd soon be in deep, physical pain.
But it wasn't a joke, and my sadness
increased daily I am still sad that Willi is
not around; that I'll never hear his laughter or be able to speak· to him again. The
only answer I get when I ask why is that
he was here to change the lives of others;
to inspire them to overcome their limits.
Such people never seem to be here very
I prefer to think of Evergreen as Willi's
dream, his baby. When he died there was
no one left here to inspire people quite so
deeply. Things are no longer conducive to
the type of learning that Willi believed
was the most valuable. Blame it on the
times, Evergreen's enrollment crisis or on
the weather, but when he died a significant portion of Evergreen died too.
In speaking of his days in college, I.F.
Stone commented about his professors,
"The few islands of greatness .seemed to
be washed by seas of pettiness and mediocrity" I think this sentiment could well
apply here.
But if people and their ideas ever die, it
is only when they are forgotten. I would
sooner count all the stars before tallying
the number of people whose lives were
touched and catylized for change by "
Willi. My life would have been emptier
without him, and I know there are many
around the world who feel the same. We
carry his memory and live his philosophy,
and in so doing Willi is more alive in
death than most who are living.

Amidst a shower of champagne, sea
chanteys, and publicity, Evergreen's first
flagship, the' Seawulff, will be officially
commissioned 1 p.m. Sunday at Percival
landing. The ceremony is expected to
draw people from both the college and
Olympia communities.
Sunday's christening marks the end of a
ten year effort to design, construct, and
set afloat the 38 foot sailing vessel.
During this time literally hundreds of students, faculty and community boat-builders were involved in the project.
Provost Byron Youtz, a long time
Seawulff supporter, will preside over the
festivities which will include a speech on
the ship's history by Evergreen president
Dan Evans. Faculty member Jim Gulden
will relate some of his experiences in
building the Seawulff. Other speeches by
those involved with the Seawulff will also
be heard.
After the ceremony, from 2 to 4 p.m.,
the public will be invited to tour the
The Seawulff was originally conceived
as being a learning experience for those
interested in wooden boat building and
design. After being completed, the ship
would serve as a sail-powered research
By 1975 members of the program
Marine Sciences and Crafts had nearly
completed the boat's hull. The project
was housed at Long Boatworks on
Olympia's Westside. But then tragedy, in

the form of a large fire, struck Long Boat
and the Seawulff was lost.
Marine Sciences and Crafts began anew,
but it was largely the ·combined
fundraising efforts of the College and
Olympia communities that enabled the
project to get underway. Wood and equipment were donated at cost by local businesses, and community boat bL1i!ding
experts joined in the effort.
Ber· een 1975-80 two programs, Resear h Vessel and Design and a boat

conslruction of the Seawulff. Last December, in an informal ceremony, the boat

labor involved in construction. However,

students may miss the essence of the
program. Many themes and issues don't
come together until the end.
The semester system would probably
descrease the spring attrition of students
and even out the student-faculty ratio
over the year. This would not require that
seminar sizes be inflated in the fall in
anticipation of spring declines.

Such a semester system would coordinate with other colleges already using it.
Fifty three percent of U.S. higher ed.
institutions use a semester system, and
the number is growing. It would fit"well
with high schools.
Arguments Against the Semester System
Students will perceive less flexibility in
the curriculum. The need to conceptualize
programs in larger blocks may mean the
demise of specialized programs that can
be offered in one-quarter length periods,
but which wouldn't draw enough students
to warrant a one-semester length period.
Semester long programs and modules
would be less attractive to part-time students, particularly those with jobs and
The period for orientation in the fall
for students and faculty would be insufficient. Curricular planning in May
might be less productive due to faculty
fatigue. The reduction in paper work
in the Registrar's offices may result in ~he
belief that work force reductions are
being considered, thus having an adverse
effect on staff morale.
adverse effect on staff morale.
Under a semester system, students
(and faculty) in a seminar or program they
didn't like would be stuck there longer.
Many feel that quarters are too short
to ;ibsorb conceptually difficult materials.
This may not apply at Evergreen, where

most instruction is in the program format;
which encourages intensive study of less
material compared to courses that stress

Tuition fees will be lumped higher
with semesters, and will cost over. .$100
more ($309 vs. $206). Some students may
have trouble paying it all at once.
The Registrar's office would be required to build a conversion system for
translating quarter hour credits to semester credits. This would be in addition to
the conversions required by earlier
changes in the recording of work completed at the College. Future institutional

research would be complicated by the
additional series of ctcdit units.
Faculty would have far less opportunity for unpaid professional leave.
Losing half a year's salary is less managable than missing one third of a year.
Considerable faculty planning would
be necessary to convert to semesters. This
would occur as the college is growing and
adding master's programs, both of which
require substantial amounts of time. The
additional conversion process may overload some of the best faculty planners.
College staff would be adversely affected
during the transition period by having to
plan new procedures, and having to educate the camp-us community on how the
new systems work.
Ambiguous Issues
Semesters would help students get
summer jobs· by freeing them in mid-may.
But it may inconvenience them by having
to finish these jobs by early 3eptember.
Such an earlier start would probably
detract some students from entering in

;horten present programs.
Faculty sabbatical leaves are currently
: paid for two quarters. A change to
semesters would probably adjust ,his period to the length of a semester. Thus,
more faculty would get paid leave but for
less time.
The computer costs of such a change
would be substantial. But such costs
would be greatly reduced if a decision
was made by summer because the school
is getting new computers that would have
to be programed from scratch.
This outline should help you clarify
your position on the potential switch to
the semester system. Questionaires will be
distributed to each program, and to program secretaries. Remember to voice your
opinion via the questionaires and at the
public hearings on March 10th.

Mysti cal Roots in a Barren Land
by l:lizabeth Jolinson
Findhor11 i, c new age, spiritual community which Peter and Eileen Caddy
started building in 1962. Peter spoke
about Findhorn at Evergreen, Tuesday,
Feb. 17.
The couple moved into their trailer on
a windy peninsula near the North Sea.
Because they received only sixteen dollars
a week in unemployment compensation,
they supplemented their budget by growing vegetables. Peter had never sown a
seed before in his life, and the only soil
present was sand and gravel. Both factors
combined to make the garden a failure.
Then Eileen received guidance through
meditation from an inner voice to telepathically contact the "devas." "Deva" is
a Sanscrit word meaning, literally, "shin,ing ones." Referred to by Peter as "angelic
archetypal, formative forces," they are the
spirits of plants. Certain people in the
community, including Eileen, have gained
the ability to communicate with the
Devas, and also other nature spirits which
include gnomes, fairies and elves.
Through this communication and cooperation with the Devas and nature spirits,
Findhorn grew amazing things: 42 pound
cabbages and tomatoes so big that it was
almost impossible to grasp one with one
hand. Peter said that it is only modern,
western man who has developed intellect

and science so far that he lost the aware1ess of the nature spirits around him.
lndiginous tribes such as native Americans, Aborigines, and certain South
American tribes have always been aware
of these spirits. "There's no known
method of organic husbandry that could
account for the growth within this garden.
There were other factors and they were
vital ones," Peter said.
After.three to four years of living in the
trailer, Eileen received a vision of "seven
mobile, sandwood bungalows, surrounded
by beautiful gardens and lovely flower •
beds." Even though they had nothing to
start building with, the Caddys proceeded
"in faith." If they followed their intuition
correctly, things would be provided for
them as were needed.
News about the Caddy's successful garden spread, and by 1973 they had 120
people who had come to visit and
decided to stay in the bungalows which
the Caddys had built. Currently, the community has about 250 permanent members and 120 guests at a time. Findhorn
has become a series of villages including
the islands of Iona and Erraid. "It's the
last place (excluding Iona a·nd Erraid) that
anybody in their right mind would choose
to start a garden or a spiritual community," said Peter, referring to the opinions
ht>ld by some agriculturalists.

The life-style of Finclhorn is based on
intense personal and spiritual growth.
Instead of looking outward ior spiritu;il
guidance, people are told to look within
themselves and listen to their own inner
Findhorn is run by a core group, which
is in the main policy-making body oi the
community. There are also three ma1or
branches: the administrative branch is rt~
sponsible for legal, planning, organizational, administrative and financial matters.
Another branch is responsible for the education of guests, new members through
workshops, seminars, and conferences.
The third branch Is made up oi the iocalizers, or leaders, of the different work
departments which comprise the •
community All decisions made within the
community are reached by consensus.
Peter Is presently on a three-month tour
along the west coast from San Diego to
Alaska. His goal is to establish an interlocking network of new-age communities
throughout the planet "There's so much
to be done in the healing of this planet,
so many changes that mankind must
make, unless he destroys himself, one way
or another," said Peter. "We have reached
the most exciting time in the whole
history of mankind, where we can eitherdestroy ourselves, or go into a new and
wonderful era."

The NewfoundlandSeal Hunt: A TragicWaste
Half of all the seal pups born are killed
by hunters. This is a percentage for a species that is suffering an
accelerated rate of decline. The 1977 harp
seal quota of 170,000 was raised to
180,000 even though the former limit had
not been met. This indicates that there
will be a serious reduction in population,
particularly of new born pups.

The Human Tragedy
by Jim Lyon
Now co~
the human tragedy. The
tragedy so many legislators on Capitol Hill
have pretended wasn't going to happen .
But haste and blind stupidity assured that
on Sunday, March 1st, the truth would
shine through.
On that day, the welfare cuts mandated
by the legislature went into effect. More
than 18,000 people will be affected,
mostly the poor, the handicapped, and
the elderly. Our own governor has called
these cuts "repugnant to him as a human
being.'.' Nlany senior citizens will receive
their notices and shake their heads. Some
won't understand. The 430 people in
nursing homes who'll be evicted over the
next several months because their incomes are too high for welfare, but not
enough to pay enormous medical bills,
probably won't understand.
The program that has supported these
people is called Federal Aid Medical Care
Only The legislature has decided to eliminate it entirely Most of the men and
women being cut are in their BCYs,some
don't speak English, let.alone understand

the legaleseof the state notices.Most of
thesepeoplehave no place to go. The
And what does our state legislaturedo?
They havemoney for muralsand California computers that will fatten the lines
of their political territories but they don't
have money for these people. Rod Chandler, a key House leader and a man who
should knCM'better, wistfully hopes "that
maybe the nursing homes will keep the
penniless patients for free." You wonder
what world he's living in. Mike Kreidler,
our own Olyrrpia representative, who
didn't vote for the cuts, says "wholesale
cuts were made without any knowledge of
what they meant." That says a lot about
what's going on up on the hill.
Someone once said that you can tell a
lot about a society by the way it treats its
old pecple. That may be true. And when
this budget was being railroaded through
the Hruse, Andrew Nisbet, one of the
shortsighted little men who rammed it
through committee, heartlessly referred to
it as "a package of tears." For what's been
done to those 430 people, a real human
tragedy, he should truly weep.

To the Editor,
Regarding Jeff Cochran's review of the
U W. Graduate Metals Show,
About the difference between craft and
art It is difficult to say what makes good
art. I think it is partly the intention and
clarity of the artist. if the artist is fooling
himself, then this will become apparent in
time to the perceptive viewer. Craft, on
the other hand, can be what seals the
work (whether good or bad) with a kind
of integrity. This quality may not always
be apparent immediately.
There is another definition of craft that
artists like to use-it being opposed to art
(rather than supporting it)-that
is, something that has been done once, then
again, and over and over until it is a result of manual dexterity with no heart or
inspiration. This definition is somehow incomplete though it i9 widely used in art
This said, I would like to ask why Jeff
Cochran thinks that because Skip
Gaynard's piece, "The Big Gulp," lies on
its side and will not hold liquid this way,
that it is bad craft? Obviously, it was not
meant to hold liquid in this position. It
was, however, executed with an attention
Jo._detailand finished with a sense of
pride and, to me,-was well-crafted. But
also it is a cup. So what does it mean
when a cup is made so that it won't stand
up but must lie downl It may imply something beyond craft. To me, this is
Regarding Liz Howell's pieces with the
steel and sticks-these don't seem so intensely personal that they're inaccessible,
as Jeff says they are. Especially when her
statement claims that they are about her
experience with her environment. Her
environment must be the same as ours. Nature and man-made structures-and the
pieces combine these two elements to
make a unified and clear statement.
George Kimball's works, among my few
favorites in the show, are more difficult.
They are not immediately seductive unless
you appreciate this kind of stuff. J.C. says
they are cliched visual images. Calling
something a cliche is easy if you don't
like it and it is in a recognizable vein, as
most art is. But the greatest truths are
cliches, and if you are concerned with
truth, then you digest these cliches and
spit them back out. It's sometimes hard
to tell if the results are superficial or if
they reveal some insight.

I would like to see a review in this
paper of an exhibit at TESC by someone
who knows what artmaking entails and
how to talk about it.
Thank you,
Daniel Finn

In reference to Larry Stillwell's forum
''Satire at Evergreen: No Laughing Matter"
{Jan. 22), I was not one of those who

and feel now, that Larry's-satire issue was
well-conceived, brilliantly timed, and,
more importantly, it was hilarious.
The satire incurred the undue indignation and attempts at censorship it
received from the people whor:n Larry
mentioned because it laid to ridicule the
standard conventions held at Evergreen.
As Larry aptly put it, "Are we so intellectually bankrupt here that liberal fascism,

face-it glows above the hidden body. As
the face approaches he is able to make
out the features. The feeling of danger
grows sharper, more pervading. Suddenly

looking for a fallout shelter, or vomiting
his way through the advan.ced stages of
radiation sickness. It is the dreams more
than anything else ·that have put him on
the road this dismal Wednesday night,
heading for a place called Ground Zero.
It's full name is the Ground Zero ·center
for Non-Violent Studie~. Its purpose is to
explore alternatives to the moral values of
the guns and buttPr ethic. The Center sits
on a thrPe-acre tract in the rain forest on
the Kitsap Peninsula, about 35 air miles
west of Seattle. It got its name from the
next-0oor neighbor: The Bangor Naval
Submarine Base. The giant 8,527-acre
Bangor complex is the future home of the
Trident.submarine: America's latest contribution to the nuclear arms race._
Ground Zero was founded in 1977 by
the May 22 Coalition, a peace activist
group based in Seattle. At the moment,
Ground Zero consists of a small, two-story
house and a half-built geodesic dome.
Someday the dome may be finished; then
again it may not-life
at Ground Zero is
uncertain at best.
As a military term, ground zero indicates the exact detonation point -0f a
nuclear warhead. Used as a name, it's a
reminder to the reporter that once Bangor
Base is activated, it and the rest of Puget
Sound will become yet another target to
be programmed into a Soviet missile
guidance computer.
Sometimes the reporter can ignore
things like that But he c,an't do it tonight- th e road to Ground Zero runs right
by the base's shining vapor-lamped main
gate. A huge American flag hangs limply
in the hissing rain. A solitary guard is the
only living creature visible. The reporter
drives on down the road another mile or
so and then turns into the Center's dirt
driveway He switches off the ignition
At first the reporter was reluctant to go
to Bangor, reluctant to mix waking reality

with nocturnal fantasy. But in the end he
does just that-he goes to pay a visit to
the Leviathan. Now, as he sits, listening to
the engine ping and tick as it cools, he
wonders if he has made a wise choice.
From what he has heard about Trident, it
sounds like enough material for a whole
series of nightmares
After another moment of reflection, the
reporter gets out of the car, climbs up the
front steps to the door and knocks. A
chorus of "come in" greet, him. HP enters.
Inside he finds about ten or so people;
some young, some old, all of them
friendly Wednesday night is di,ru,sion
night at Ground Zero. People have gathered to talk about almost anything. On
any given Wednesday the conversation
may wander from Ghandi, to Trident, to
the question of how the hell the human
species is ever going to get out of thP
evolutionary dead end we...see.mto have
wandered into. The group tonight Is small,
but they make him welcome. A man in a
turtleneck sweater strums quietly on an
old guitar. The reporter is offered coffee
or tea.
He sits down and slowly, haltingly, explains why he has come. He talks about
the dreams, about the lost sleep. He mentions the stories he has read in the newspapers the exploding missile silos, the
malfunctioning computers, the false
alarms. He asks for information, explanations. There is a long silence and then
people begin to talk. Information comes
in bits and piece!\, each fact followed by
clarification and elaboration But as the
conversation progresses, the reporter
begins to get an idea of what Trident is
all about. Just a skeletal outline, the bare
bones of a picture. The picture is not a
nice one.
When the first Trident sub sails up
Hood Canal in the spring of 1981 it will
be armed with 24 Lockheed Trident 11

the Trident submarine will be able to
patrol for as long as six months without

and completely undetectdble.
In the opinion of many observers (including Robert Aldridge, one of the Lockheed engineers who designed its advanced, new missile system), Trident is an
offensive, "first strike" weapon, designed
to give the United States the capability to
destroy the Soviet Union while suffering
only "acceptablP casualties" in rPturn.

Th" Pnsure, that any nuclpar war would
inevitably be ",1 war without winners." If
the U.S.S.R., for example, launched a surprise fir<;t strike, it would undoubtedly
bomb the United States back into the
Stone Age. But it would not destroy U S.
bombers circling 24 hours a day in the
Arctic stratosphere, or U .S strategic
missiles <;Lashedaway in the North Dakota
flatlands, or U.S submarines lurking off
the Russian coast.
A Soviet sneak attack would automatically cause these forces to launch a
counter-strike (a sort of last reflexive kick
by the smoldering corpse of the nation)
and the Soviet Union would in turn find
out what it's like to glow in the dark.
Assuming that under such conditions no
one would be mad enough to start anything serious, superpower rivalry can be
confined to stirring U[) trouble in each
other's client states.
All nice and neat. But the world being
what it is, such solutions are never permanent. About 18 years ago, in the aftermath
of the Cuban missile crisis, a number of
U.S. policy thinkers (led by a young
Harvard professor named Henry Kissinger)
began to question the MAf) policy. Under
certain conditions, they said, a limited

nuclear war could be fought without
incinerating the world in the process.
They urged the United States to adopt a
more flexible posture towards thP use of
nuclear weapons. The Trident missile

Flaubert's Letters: A Life Story
by AndyMcCorrnick
"Literature! That old whore. We must
try to che her wi'_', mercury and pills and
clean he-out from top to bottom; she has
been so ultra-screwed by filthy pricks."
That such an earthly tirade comes from
that paragonof cool, nearly scientific detachment, Gustave Flaubert, seems surprising, and pleasingly so. After all,
reading fvladame· Bovary and knowing
Flaubert's oft-quoted dicta on the relationship bmleen life and letters-"an author

A weird sort of life, to be sure, and one
which Flaubert rather freely admitted to
hating. Art was his consolation; writing
his life's work. But often the hours spent
at his desk were filled with a terrible drudgery. "Last week I spent five days writing
one page." Still, dismal as that sounds,
there were times when he fairly swoons
with jo,,. "Occasionally I have had
glimpses in the glow of an enthusiasm
that made me thrill from head to foot, of
such a state of mind, superior to life itself, a state in which fame counts nothing
and even happiness is superfluous."
Flaubert wrote this outburst at age 31,
engrossedin Bovary. At the time he was
beginning to cloister himself from the
world at the family estate in Croisset He
was not married (the idea repulsed him)
and lived with his mother. He seems to
have cared for little except art; Art For
Art's Sake. He had a mistress in Paris,
Louise Colet, whom he confessed to love,
but could not bring himself to visit very
often. He slaved in his study from noon
to night, shouting out phrases that tickled
him. He bewildered his poor mother,
while embarassing his bourgeois relatives.
Blcltdespite his "austere solitude" and
seclusion, The Letters of Gustave Flaubert
1830-1857(translated by Francis Steegmuller, Harvard University Press, 1980) are
fascinating documents filled with delightful insights about life, art, literature, and
venereal disease.
Flaubert caught the latter on a voyage
to the Middle East and the Orient in his
late twenties. His bawdy descriptions of
this journey may be the highlight of the
book and, at any rate, should be the place
to start reading.
Travelling ostensibly for "educational
purposes" (the government paid the bill),
Flaubert turned the trip into an 18 month
long riotous debauch. He describes in
loving detail his adventures in Arabi_;m

brothels, his encounters with young boys
in Turkish baths, and most gleefully of all,
his apparently inexhaustible sexual energy.
If we are to believe him, "I fucked three
women, fOJr shots in all, three before
lunch and ooe after dessert."
But all good things come to an end, or
at least a te.mpora·ry halt. Flaubert, in
Beirut, is put out of action. "I suspect a
Maronitewoman of making me this gift,
or perh~ it was a little Turkish lady. ·The
Turk or the Christian? Which? Probleme!
Food fcr thought!" So much for education.
Sti II, he is quite affected by a visit to
the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. ','Affected" in the way people who aren't particularly religious but still cling to a kind of
piety are affected. "There came over me
that strange feeling which men like you (a
poet friend) and me experience when we
are alme beside our fire, straining with
the mii:tit of our souls to explore the ancient abv.;srepresented by the word 'love,'
and imagining what it might be-if it
were pc6Sible."
Back home Flaubert tackles the task of
writing Madame Bovary. He also resumes
an alma,t Platonic relationship with his
mistressLouise Colet He seems to write
to her rrostly to talk about his work in
progress,or of art in general. He loves
her, hewrites, but seeing her is such a
distraction,; and as to her desire to meet
his mcther-out of the question! That she
can love him puzzles Flaubert. That she
can think of marrying him is positively
abhorfflt to him. By the end of the affair
his letters which, were ardently passionate, have turned almost vicious. His last
commi.nique to Louise in its entirety is
"Madiire: I was told that you took the
trouble to come here to see me three
times last evening. I was not in. And,
fearing lest persistence expose you to
humiliation, I am bound by the rules of
politeness to warn you that / shall never
be in."
A little later, Flaubert quotes a remark
his mcther made which he finds "Sublime." "'Your mania for sentences,' my
mother said, 'has dried up your heart."'
I don't think you have to be particularly
interested in Flaubert or literary history to
enjoy this book. Flaubert's hilarious and
caustic dismissals of the rising bourgeois
in 19th century France are alone worth it
Flaubert waged a war against the Philistines who were trying to make art, his
very bbod, into a "consumptive,'' utilitarian fflterprise and he suffered for his
efforts. "If you participate too actively in
- life, yru don't see it clearly: you suffer
from it too much or enjoy it too much.
The artist, to my way of thinking, is a·
monstrosity, something outside of nature."
Eve[!1een'slibrary has The Letters of
Custa\€ Flaubert 1830-1857, as does the
Timberland Library in Olympia. The book
wi II prcbably be printed in paperback in
the necr future.

by Andrew Derby
The Evergreen State College's presentation of Henrick Ibsen's Hedda Cabler,
currently featured at the Experimental
Theatre, is perhaps the biggest fiasco ever
to grace the stage of academia.
Ibsen's famous story concerns a ruthless, neurotic woman, torn between social
conventions and her own passionate will.
Lacking the courage to follow her inner
convictions, Hedda compensates for her
failings by setting out to destroy her exlover, Eilert Lovborg, and his current
flame, Thea Elvstead. Hedda's perverted
values cause her best-laid nlans to backfire, driving her to suicide.
Hedda Cabler is a drama with intense
psychological undertones. It requires,
from the director, a strong understanding
of Ibsen's thematic symbols. In order to
be effective in portraying the character's
inner conflicts, without resorting to sappy
melodrama, the director must weave the
subtlety of the symbolism with the main
action of the story.
Andre Tsai's direction lacks both the
understanding of Ibsen's symbols and the
creative power to effectively mix them
with the main dialogue Instead of prod.icing a powerful psychological staterrent, Tsai gives us theatrical parlor tricks.
The inane amplified heartbeat, employed
whenever Hedda's emotions were stirred,
had the subtlety of a brick. The absurdity
of tlw gimmi_ck made it laughable and I
noticed the audience doing so. It made
rre think of the radio "chicken heart
which ate New Jersey," lurking in the
wings of the theatre.
Tsai's handling of Hedda also left much
to be desired. Melodrama is a very effective tool when employed sparingly. Linda

Olivas-Mathews' (Hedda) performance was
just plain over-acting. Her movements
were so exaggerated that her entire stint
on stage smacked of slapstick comedy,
reminiscent of Carol Burnett reruns.
The director's relationship with his
actors seemed terribly vague. The cast
had an air of frustration, either not understanding the character they were to
portray or being too bored to care. Character development is crucial to a play of
this magnitude. But there was none, either
o,ving to bad casting, or a bad relationship between director and actor.
I'm inclined to attribute David Logan's
performance as Eilert Lovborg to the
former malady. Not only did he have to
force his lines, but he consistantly harbored a ridiculous smirk on his face which
was not at all in line with his character.
His soul rending cry of remorse after
having "lost his child" in Act 3 was downright embarrassing. I would have gladly
delivered Mr. Logan the means to shoot
himself, relieving the audience's misery as
well as his own.
It is unnecessary to continue further
comment on the performances by the
other cast members. Let it suffice to say
that they were all pathetic. When one
actor is bad I would not hesitate on laying
the blame on the actor. But when the
entire cast is bad, the fault must lie with
the director.
I fail to understand why the drama department, as a whole, lacked the courage
to tell Andre Tsai that his production
stinks. I have heard that Mr. Tsai is an
excel lent technical director by occupation, but this attempt at creative drama is
a farce. His production of Hedda Cabler
is a bad play and not worth the price of a

Intramural Sports: Not for Jocks Only
by Kenneth Sternberg
Mentioning the word "sports" at Evergreen is either one of the best ways to
clear people from a room or is a sure fire
invitation to a heated argument. Unlike
most other colleges, Evergreen doesn't
offer much in the w'ay of football or basketball nor any athletic scholarships. An
organized program of intramural (oncampus) sports began fall quarter, coordinated by Corey Meador, an Evergreen
Meador explained how the program
came to be and what his goals are for
intramural sports at Evergreen. "People at
Evergreen have had bad experiences in
, recreation," he said .. He wanted to provide
experiences where people could play
games and sports without fear of being
criticized or of worrying if they were good
enough. "I wanted it to be fun. Otherwise,
there's no sense in doing it," Meador said.
Since there are no physical education
classes here, Meador said that many who

want some kind of recreation aren't sure
how to organize it or don't wan't to organize it themselves. He said that in the
past, some activities, like rock climbing,
were organized by one or two persons
who were addicted to the sport. When
they left, there was generally no one left
to continue their work. Such centralized
leadership is one thing Meador is trying to
He explained that last winter, Jefferson
High School's gym was open to Evergreen
students for basketbal I ar,d that the reaction was quite positive. The following
spring, Meador organized volleyball
games in Red Square. Again, students
responded favorably. That summer, he
coordinated softball, volleyball and new
games (games which emphasize cooperation and'fun, rather than competition).
"People wanted more," Meador said.
With the interest evident, Meador wanted
to "take something that was an idea and

Are such programs changing peoples'
attitudes about sports? Meador said that
those who are anti-athletics are learning
"that you can have recreation without
getting weird, and that you don't have to
be a hard-.core jock." He hopes that
interest in intramurals will remain
constant and would also like to see the

see it happen." This is when he devised
the idea of an intramural sports program
sponsored by the Recreation Center.
During the fall, Meador placed sign-up
sheets in the Rec. Center for anyone
interested in playing soccer, flag football,
volleyball, ultimate frisbee or walleyball
(walleyball is volleyball played in a
racquetball court). Although students
again expressed their approval, the excitement died down in the winter.
Meador observed that winters are slow
at Evergreen. As the rains seep in, energy
se-epsout, and the desire to kick a soccer
ball or even open a book quickly fades.
Thus far, all that's been offered this
quarter is walleyball, body conditioning
and occasionally, water polo.
But spring is another story. Meador
plans to hold tournaments in wrestling,
new games and tennis. Also planned is
soccer, street hockey, softball and kayak
slalom races.
