Evergreen is up to something again.
What is it this time? Earthfair, '81, "the
largest all-student co-ordinated activity
ever, the best even't of the academic
year. "Similar to Super Saturday in size and
community involvement, Epperson sees it
as an opportunity to present Evergreen to
the public. Evergreen is an alternative
educational system providing an education which is pertinent and applicable to
present-day problems. Earthfair gives the
publi c a chance to come on campus and
see Evergreen as it really is .
~ased on I:arthday, which was conceived in Madison, Wisconsin in 1969, Earthfair is a week-long "celebration of life"
beginning April 19 and ending on April
26. Its only precursor at Evergreen is Sun
Day, a day-long event in 1978 which had
solar energy as its focus , and brought
.Amory Lovins, as keynote speaker, to
ca mpus.
The idea of broadening the meaning
and scope of Earthday into a week of
activities was conceived in June of 1980,
and in September Epperson brought the
idea to president Dan Evans, hoping the
college would support the idea and help
to finance it- Evans strongly supported the
idea, but felt the college could not take it
on as Epperson had hoped.
Chris Martin _and Amy Wales of the
Environmental Resource Center worked
with Mark Young, Mark Rappaport, and
Peter Epperson on a grant proposal to the
Evergreen Foundation. Four months later,
in February, the Foundation granted them
$1,000 Services and Activities awarded
them another $1 ,300 toward travel and
The result is an all-student planned
event Between the time they received the
grants and the scheduled week of Earthfair, the students had less than two and a
half months, part of which was deleted by
Spring break, to plan and organize the
week-long event
The first step was to draft a "highly
professional, personalized letter" inviting
educators and professionals from across
the country to speak or in some way contribute to the week of activities. The grant

money was not sufficient to pay most of
the sp~akers invited . "We offered to pay
travel expenses and otherwise had to
appeal to their altruistic hearts," Epperson
said. Of the two hundred and fifty invited,
close to one hundred responded . Many of
the speakers and perfcrmers scheduled
tours and other engagements around the
week of Earthfair; most, like Odetta are
coming with only travel expenses paid .
Odetta, the famed folk singer, is arriving
from New York on April 22.
Keynote speakers include Dr. Giovanni
Costigan , from the University of Washington, who will speak on the maintenance
of human rights from a global perspective.
Ruth Weiner, from Huxley College, will
explain the impact and importance of .
continued education and recognition of
our fragile environment . Joel Schatz, from
the President's Advisory Council for Environmental Quality, will speak on the
"Economics of Optimism. " Governor John
Spellman will not however, as was publicized, be on campus on Wednesday.
Other activities include a presentation
by the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission and the Washington Environmental
Councilor "Enhancement, Conservation
and the Environment"; an overview of
tribal management and enhancement
policies with research and development
cases now being studied by the Fisheries
commi ssion.
M embers of the Northwest Indian
Women's Circle, an organization which
grew out of the common struggles of
Indian women with the contemporary
social and environmental stratum, will
discuss the loss of tribal rights, discrimination, suppression of lifestyle and current
relocations of the Navaho people, on Friday, 2 p.m. in Cab 306.
Sharon Hart, agricultural specialist from
INTER*M, will discuss agricultural practices in the Third World, focusing on
Yemen and China, on Wednesday at 5:30

The total funding for higher educiltion
would be $1 .8 biliion dollars for the 198183 biennium or about 12 percent higher
than the present biennium. This budget

be to 23 per cent of the educational cost.
Community college tuition would increase
to 21 per cent of the educational cost.
What it means is this: tuition at the two

Tuitions and fees are going up dramatically in the near future. The only question
that remains is: How much?
A myriad of complex and confusing
proposals in the state legislature each take
a different approach. The proposal passed
in the state budget last week still has to
go through the legislature as a separate
bill. It goes roughly like this :

Like other school districts in the state, Olympia public schools
are looking at massive cuts in state funding if the education budget proposed by the State Senate is passed intact. Like other
school district officials, local administrators are wondering how
they will provide the programs for handicapped and other special
students that are required by both federal and state law.
Washington State educators are concerned, one might even
say appalled, by proposed funding cuts contained in the Senate
Budget. The Washington Education AssOCiation (.wEA) has called
the budget "written proof of a broken promise to our children,"
and accused the Senate of "taking a major step toward the deterioration and perhaps the ultimate destruction of public education
as we know it today."
School officials are particularly incensed by severe cuts in the
various special education programs. The programs are mandated
by the Federal Education for All Handicapped Children Act, and
the .state's own House Bill 90, which enjoyed bipartisan support
when it was passed in 1970.
The proposed 'Senate budget would cut a little over 38% of
the funding for handicapped students, and a full 85% out of programs serving gifted students, those nel'!dlng help with remedial
skills, and students who require bilingual iQ~truction. Funds for
the Gifted Student, Remedial, and BilinguaL'programs would be
distributed by what is known as the "block grant formula,"
which apportions funding for the programs on the basis of a
school district's total enrollment rather than on the number of
students requiring specialized instruction.

Waterfront property owners on Budd
Inlet are upset by the visably unpure
sewage that is being released into the bay
by the Olympia Sewage Treatment Plant.
One waterfront property owner, who
wished to remain ur')named, said " What's
tragic is it will take 200 years for the inlet
to cleanse itself from all the sewage that
has settled on the bottom."
The waterfront owner resides near one
of two pipes that release treated sewage
into the bay. He said the rats are becoming a problem_ " They love the sewage and
they have thrived to the point where they
have outgrown the food resources and are
moving up West Bay Drive," he said. "The
rats have gnawed holes in my building
and one neighbor told me they had
moved into her house." One of the pipes
is located near KGY and the other on~ is
by Fiddlehead Marina.
The Olympia Sewage Treatment Plant
does not currently meet federal standards
as set by the Water Pollution Control Act,
1969 (amended in 1971), The plant is
treating its sewage only by primar}, process, which the Federal Government has
deemed is not adequate to control water
The Water Pollution Control A ct set a
mandate whi ch requires sewage treatment

Editor's Note: As was reported in '~he CPI
last week, TESC President Dan Evans has
been appointed to the Pacific Northwest
Regional Power Council. Over the next
decade, as the Pacific Northwest strives to
. deal with its energy problems, the Power
Council will have a tremendous influence
on the economic and environmental
health of the area . This week, Mr. Evans
shares his thoughts on both his appointment and on the opportunities and the
hazards of regional energy development.
'CP): You have taken on a huge responsibility in accepting this position. How do
you foresee being able to manage the
dual responsibility of representing Ever- ·
green and also representing the State of
Washington on the Power Council. Do
you have the time to make this commitment without letting Evergreen suffer in
the process?
Evans: I certainly don't intent to let
Evergreen suffer in the process. I think
that if it comes down to ultimately a
question of choice, of not being able to
do both, I'll have to step aside.
Most importantly, I think there are
some mistaken notions about the nature
of the Pacific Northwest Power Council.
I believe it would be detrimental to the
Power Council and to the Northwest if all
eight commissioners were involved fulltime in meetings or activities of the
council. We have good examples of that
kind of operation in the Nuclear Regulatory Commission where they have five

Senator Slade Gorton . The bill is also strongly suppo rted by Senator Henry Jackson and mos t other m embers of W as hington's
congreSS ional delegation .
The bill wou ld reverse the historic 1974 dec ision of U s. Di stri CI Judge George Boldt concernin g Indian fishing ri ghts. Boldt
rul ed that trpaty rights give Indi an tribes the opportunity to

ca tch as well as the right to catch."
The bill has drawn a swift, negative reaction from Native
American spokesmen . George Kalama, Chairman of the Nisqually
Tribe, sa id "the bill would shift us back in time to a beads and
trinket economy_ He (Gorton) would like to see us acting as 'Indian Guides' to non-Indian sportsmen rather than earn a decent
living through our own efforts."

tion. This plant will replace the outmoded
primary process plant that- has existed in
Olympia since 1950.
When asked if the present plant was in
violation of health regulations, Mike _
Clark, a biologist for the Environmental
Health Agency, said " Technically yes, but
since they are working to alleviate the
problem, it is being overlooked."
The ' primary process plant has a problem sifting out plastic products (condorr.s
and diapers) that get flushed down toilets,
according to Ken Maurermann, District
Supervisor for the Department of Ecology's
S.W. office_ Maurermann said, "The plant
could be fineq up to $10,000 a day." He
said that if a private business were violating a comparabl~ regulation , it would be
fined . Maurermann said, "But since the
plant is operated by the City of Olympia,
we are trying to work together with them. "
When asked about the plant's efficiency
in sifting out condoms and other plastic
products, Tom Colby, the chief operator
for the plant, s!lid, "Some products do
sneak through . We take the bulk of it out,
but it isn' t a fine enough process to get all
of it out." He said 'w hen the new plant is
completed in the spring of 1982, it will be
the most efficient in the state. " The
treated sewage released into the bay by
the new plant," Colby said, " will be of
purer quality than the bay itself ."
The waterfront owner said, " It seems
there's really nothing to be done until the
new plant is built, except fine the city and
that would soon bankrupt it."

Kalama's reference is to a part of the bill that would allow
tribes to issue li censes for recrea tional steelhead fishing on the
reservati on. The congressmen have specul ated these licenses
mi ght make more income for the tribes than com mercial stee lhead fi shing.
But accord ing to Kalama and Lummi Chairman Larry Kinely,
the tribes already have a right to issu e li c-e nses on the reservation, and seek ing compens ation through the U .S. Court of Claims
is a lengthy and costly endeavor that would do little to benefit
Native Ameri cans . " The 19 tribes that fish commercially for
steelhead wou ld suffer f inanciall y as the fi sh provide nea rly half
the in come for some tri bes. " Kalama sa id.
The Indi ans also ob ject that the bill requires state officials to
go on reservations to enforce the ban . " Thi s is another effort to
ex tend control over the tribes ," accord ing to Kalama .
John D . Kel ly, president of the Steel head Trout Club of Washin gton supports th e measure. Kelly stated that the bill sho uld be
passed ." to save the stee l head indu stry. in W as hin gton."
" We 'absolutely will not accept the position ... that this is a
racist issue. The sports fishery as we once knew it is close to
being lost. The decline of the sports fishery is due to Indian
.overfishing for steel head , both on and off the reservation ,"
Kelley sa id .
Jim Heckman, spokes man for the Northwest Indian Fisheries
Commi ss ion , sa id that "people like Gorton have not been willing
to discuss it. They're not even willing to listen ."
Slade Gorton, as the state's attorney general, argued the appeal of the Boldt decision before the U.S. Supreme Court several
years ago. He lost the case.
Congressional sources give the bill little chance of passage and
Gorton himself says he doesn't know if the measure stands a

Rep rese ntati ve Ellis sa id HB 626 is deSigned to follow an ea rli er anti-pornography Initiative (355 ) whi ch ca rri ed by
over 100,000 votes in November of 1977.
That measure was declared unconstitutional on First Amendment grounds by
U.S. Di stri ct Court Judge James M. Fitzgerald six months later .
The present bill has been substantially
changed since it was first introduced in
the legi slature, and is now within the
guidelines established by Fitzgerald 's
ruling, Ellis said.
The Republican Representative, quoting
natio nally syndicated columnist George
Will , told the Judiciary Committee that
the law should express the community's
core values. He also said that civil libertians, who charge that bills like HB 626
violate people~ right to privacy, ignore
the fa ct that " pornographers are at war
with privacy. "
Ellis quoted Will Durant, whom he
termed "a famous humanist:: as saying a
moral code must be established in society
to control the " individualisti c impul se."
A whole slew of opponents, including
t he w riters, did not agree with Ellis's inter.
pretation of the bill.
"Thi s bill is a direct effort to intrude on
the way I do my business ," Dan Levan of
the Madrona Publi shing Company told the
Committee. "I would not know in ado '
vance whether I am committing a crime '
or not. This amounts to prior .restraint."
Walter Carr, a bookstore owner, said
that the bill "could allow a misguided
zea lot to drag me into court. " He said
that it would be virtually impossible for a
bookseller who doesa large business to
go through each volume to determine
what is pornographic.
Assistant Attorney General Tom Bjorgen,
representing the Washington State library,
said the library is against the measure because it is constitutionally vague. "How is
a citizen supposed to know whether his
activity injures public morals?"

If Senate Bill 4036, a measure amending
the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA)
is passed by the legislature, it may have
far-reaching effects on environmental poli cies in this state for many years to come .
The measure would eliminate legal
challenges to the adequacy of environmental impact statements (EISs) on residential developments in four of the state's
urban counties .
Proponents of the bill claim that environmentali sts are using the State EnvironmentalProtestion Act (SEPA) as a
delay tactic. Bob Dilger, lobbyist for the
Building Trades Council, blamed SEPA for
the delays in completing Interstate 1-90
across Lake Washington. " I doubt it will
ever be built now," Mr. Dilger stated.
Dilger argued that amendments to SEPA
won't be enough, " I'd like to do away
with the law completely ."
Opponents of the bill believe that
developers are misinformed , and are
taking out their,frustrations on the environment instead of on a bad economy.
Kenneth W einer, Deputy Executive Director and counsel for the White House
Council on Environmental Quality, claims
that SEPA does work and that talk of delays and cost over-runs isn' t -accurate_
" The amount of SEPA litigation has been
vastly exaggerated ," Weiner said. There
have been fewer than 40 SEPA cases in
the Wash ington courts over the last 10
years. Of these, only 2 cases have found
an EIS to be inadequate_"
One section of the bill would elimir.ate
the need for an EI S to be filed for developments of up to 100 lots or 300 units _
Martha Sabol , of the Cascade Chapter
of the Sierra Club, gave her reaction to
that particular amendment. " Hypothetically, one developer could build a compl ex and several more could build other
complexes in conjun ction with the first
one, and you would then have a large development over night without the public
being informed."
Duke Schaub, lobbyist for the Associated General Contractors and proponent
of the bill denied that it would " emasculate" the Environmental Act.
However, Weiner contends that "this
meat-axe approach" of 'streamlining' S£PA
would allow "commercial interests to use
SEPA as a device to save areas -for industrial development, rather than prevent
environmental degradation."

full-time commissioners_ It's an unholy
mess. They build parochial little empires
and have a great deal of difficulty getting
together on anything.
I believe that this council ought to be
in essence a very active board of directors
which gives policy direction but has a
small, highly talented staff who can draw
upon the vas,t amount of already available
information and research which has been
done in the various aspects of power in
the Northwest_
It seems to me that the intense periods
of council activity are likely to be at the
beginning, and then again about a year
later when the initial draft and the initiai
proposals have been put together and
then we are ready for the hearings and
the other public input, which will require
a considerable amount of time_ Both of
these intense periods of activity are likely
to occur during the summertime, which is
a particularly appropriate time as far as

CP} : So you don't feel that there's any
danger that Washington , by only having
representatives on the Council working


part-time, would be at a disadvantage
relative to the other states?
Evans : I don' t believe so. As I say, I
certainly intend to put in time adequate
to the responsibility. And if that proves to
be impossible, then I'll have to step aside,
but I don't anticipate that it will. I think
sometimes it's not so much a matter of
the length of time as it is the quality of
time someone spends on something.
CPI: Does your acceptal}ce of this position imply any possibility of you leaving
Evergreen before the end of you six-year
term in 19831
Evans : I certainly don't anticipate so,
but I can't predict the future any more
than anyone else. I don't have any current
intentions of leaving. This position does
not change anything in that respect.

CPI: As Washington's representative to
the Power Council , you will have the
opportunity to make decisions with
significant and long-lasting impact on
both the environment and the energy
future of the Northwest. Have you chosen
anyone for your staff yet?
Evans : No, not yet. I'm beginning to get
resumes of people volunteering to be on
the staff . I'm sure that the other seven
members of the council are getting the
same thing.
I don' t think it needs to be a huge staff.
I particularly am interested in making
some kind of inventory of the capabiliti es
which exist on college and university
campuses . The research talents there can

" W e have absolutely nothing to fall back on ."
Special Servi ces handl es only a portion of programs for disadvantaged students . Other programs are being trimmed even

that funding cuts in other programs ~ould increase the student
load for Special Services. " If teachers are having difficulty with
students" he saia, " they would have to decide whi ch of the ex::eptional student programs to plac e them in . Many students qualify for both Special Services and the other remedial programs.
With the budgets for other programs being cut so deeply, I
am worned that these students will be placed in one of our programs, increasing our load at a time when our own budget is
being cut. "
As bad as Dr. Wood' s problems are, Dr. Pat Gill says his are
even worse. Dr. Gill is in charge of Instructional Services, whi ch
oversees the Remedial Assistance, Gifted Students and Bilingual
programs - the rest of the Olympia area exceptional student
offerings. The Senat~ Budget would reduce Instructional Service's
funding from $125,314 to slightly over $26,000 a year. As far as
federal money is concerned, Dr. Gill said that "we are expecting

Dr. Gill was particularly troubled by the future of bilingual

primarily to the influx of Indochinese refugee children, many
with little or no English skill s, into Olympia's public sc hools.
Dr. Gill is hoping th at the State House, which is cons idering
its own version of the state budget, will ease the burden on

In any case, sc hool officials say they will do their best to cope

Freeze the
Arms Race
There is a.n ancient Roman proverb : to
preserve the peace, prepare for war. It
would seem that this slogan has never
been embraced with more conviction than
in the last thirty-five years by the leaders
of the two world powers . In the years
Si nce the atomic bombing of Hiroshima,
both the United States and the Soviet
Union have stockpiled nucl ear bombs by
t he tens of thousands.
In the United States today, that stockpile contains the firE;power equivalent of
b 15,000 bombs the size of the one
dropped on Hiroshima , a bomb whi ch deqroved 84,000 persons and flattened a
Clt \ in a fla sh. The Soviets , despite getting
(lll to a slow start, have now ac hieved
rough parity with that figure.
Consider what that means. If Ceasar

Is Evergreen "Selling Out"?

by Doug Scrima
Is Evergreen "selling out"? The question
is perennial. On at least an annual basis,
Evergreen students question the integrity
of their institution and its commitment to
alternative education. I think that's an
indication of the quality of students who
enroll . at Evergreen and their concern for
the quality of their education. I'm certain
both are unparalleled. The question that
strikes me though, is this: if Evergreen
were to lose its unique nature and become just another large lecture hall for
tenured old coots doing research, what
would be the driving force behind that
My f irst potential answer is supplied by
past CPJ articles which have implied that
the evolving make-up of the student body
is driving the school towards mediocrity.
I find this argument quite absurd . First, it
seems rather elitist to argue that the
campus was specifically designed for a
particu lar segment of society. The school
was designed for education-education
for everyone. The greater the diversity of
students, the greater the opportunity for
exploration and dialogue.
A second view attributes Evergreen's

students of an education by designing

Could Be Better
Dear Burton S. Guttman (Biology),
I n reply to your letter to the editor, I
disagree with you . If, as you say, you
have attended many plays, from New York
to Seattle, you must have seen some horrible plays to find Hedda Gabler " quite a
good production ." I think it's about time
people realize the quality of faculty we
have in the theatre department. The student directors show far more talent and
ambition. Most of the faculty should take
a permanent leave of absence. Evergreen
has yet to put on a play measuring up to
the standards the facilities can provide.
We have many talented actors and actresses who can only do their best with
good direction. I feel Ms. Treat did not
over-rate "All My Sons," in fac~ she preferred "Bent" which was the better of the
two. Mr. Derby's review was quite refreshing, in that someone finally reviewed
a play truthfully

and The Evergreen Community :
At the end of Winter Quarter I installed
a temporary piece of s.culpture on
campus . My contact with Darrell Six from
Facilities and Tom and Cliff on the staff,
who assisted me in the installation
was excellent.

First, where do students get the notion
that they have the expertise to design a
college curriculum? Sure, I was involved in
programs where students contributed to
the process, but the faculty baked the
cake. Students were great with the frosting, but because we lacked so much in
the ingredients departm~nt, we certainly
would not have made very able bakers.
Second, are the faculty out to "get us"?
You're damn right they are! They are out
to get us all the skills we can use when
we leave this place. I think Evergreen's
graduate placement statistics will show
that they succeed in doing that. And yet
I recall very few occassions at Evergreen
where faculty stressed the need to memorize a vast amount of meaningless data
merely for the sake of a degree or a job.
Their commitment was to the quality of
education and learning in a collaborative
academic atmosphere. As a former transfer student, I can say with some experience that such commitment is rare at the
undergraduate level.
So I am back to the question. Is Evergreen "selling out"? After reading so much
about it in the CPj for six years, I could
easily assume it is. But I don't see much
evidence to support that. As long as the
school remains committed to the concept
of i riterdisciplinary study with a strong
seminaring component where intense dialogue can continue, I think TESC will

integrity as much as the semes ter system
should be able to prove itself worthy of
thoroughly enhancing our education .
Please do not make a hasty or whimsica l decision .

Tp the editor,
After attending the forum held by the
Semes ter System DTF . on March 10, I
realized some basic problems with considering the change from the quarter
system to the semester system .
Changing to the semester system would
probably make the job easier for professors but at the expense of the student's
education . It would definitely jeopardize
the flexibility that is now built into the
Evergreen system. The obvious example
being that instead of three choices a year
there would only be two. Also through my
prior experience at a semester school ,
students have a great deal of difficulty
studying intensively for a 15-week period.
Ten-week periods are a much better
suited length of time for intensive study.
Talking with the D.T.F ., I discovered
that they have only been studying this
matter for about four weeks. This is hardly
sufficient time to reach a decision on
what recommendation they should give
the provost. It is absurd to even try and
consider resolving this delicate and major
issue by this summer just because Evergreen goes on a new computer system.
Also because 53% of the colleges have
switched to the semester system is a poor
reason to consider the change at Evergreen . Are we forgetting that Evergreen
is a one-of-a-kind school with a completely alternative approach to education?
According to D .T.F. members there has
been very little student input into this
matter. The input has basically come from
faculty and administration . Many students
such as myself never' even received the
questionnaire that was supposed to have
been handed out by program professors .
More effort should be made by the D.T.F.
to publicize the importance of student
input on this issue.
Finally, we have to remember that we
are talking about a MAJOR change in
Evergreen's' program planning. The quarter
system has' not been a failure, but quite
to the contrary, it has been successful. Of
course it haS its inherent problems just
like the semester system will . We must
realize that the quarter system should not
be put into the position of defending its

Mari(-It Criminals


To the Cooper Point Journal :
Undoubtedly many readers are familiar
with the practi ce of supermarket "dumpstering." Salvaging groceries from the profusion of franchized waste is both resourceful and socially laudable. However,
a friend af mine was arrested and convicted of theft last week after making off
with three half pints of over-dated yoghurt
from behind Mark-it Foods downJown
Commenting that she hadn't been aware
that she'd been stealing, the Evergreen
student pled guilty to the charge. Responding that " ignorance is no excuse,"
Judge Schultz sentenced her to 15 days in
jail and a $265 fin e. The jail sentence was
later rescinded .
Legally, as well as 'p ractically, dumpstering is not a strategic issue to promote
or defend . Countless larger, more 'blatant
and less excusable transgressions by our
corporate economy do need to be publicized and fought . I, however, know one
store that will no longer receive my
patronage-inside or outl

The SAGA deli here on campus has decided to stop making change. Now in a
world faced with economic collapse,

ing that to someone who has come illl the
way out to campus to do their laundry on a
Sunday only to find that they haven't a
quarter to their name. Or to someone w ho
has to make a very important phone ca ll
very quickly at nine o'clock on a weekday after everything else has closed up.
'To hell with the world situation : they
mi ght say, ' I want some change l '
There is, of course, that neat gadget on
the 1st floor that will take your little
dollar into its electric maw and spit back
out a few pi eces of sil ver in return . So
who cares if the Deli won 't do you any

thank you, right?
Wrong. Like the cigarette machine. the
clocks, Dan Evans, and every other mechanical device on campus, the changer
has a perverse sense of humor and wi II
refuse to work right when you need it
most. Reasoning with it won't help, yelling
at it is foolish , and taking a sledge
hammer to its shining metal exterior is a
felony So you are shit out of luck .
I do not set: .'Inything unreasonable in
asking a company like SAGA, which has a
virtual monopoly on Food Service in all
the state's public institutions, whi ch
leases its place of business from the student's own Services and Activities board ,
and which nets a tidy little profit each
year at Evergreen alone, to keep a few
extra rolls of quarters on hand along with
the banana bread and the in credible edibles. As a compromise, perhaps the Deli
would be willing to make change during
those times when other campus businesses, such as the bank and the downstairs cafeteria , are closed.
Barring any peaceful resolution to thi s
problem, I would suggest that when
SAGA's lease comes up for renewal, the
S&A Board consider inserting a clause
dealing with change-making in the revised
contract. Another possibility, for students
wishing to take direct action, is to start
paying for our goodies with ten dollar
bills and demanding all of our change in
quarters . Some more wi ld headed activists
may want to take even stronger measures.
but being well aware of the laws against
inciting to riot, I will leave them to their
own devicps.

partiCipated in that f irst Earthday, April
22, 1970. " Look," somebody said . " There's
only o r e. Lers take care ot it."
That's the big pi c ture': Earthday w as a
radical event in human history, a redi scovery of our earthbound roots-of where we
came from , where we are today, and
where we might get to if we cared . It
dawned on a lot of u s to love the whole
thing and not man apart. For we are a
part of it-not above it, not beyond it, not
exempt from It. And nobody, except some
sloppy Old Testament edit~, ever gave us
the wisdom or the permission to hold
dominion over any part of it.
And the particulars? Earthday married
t he traditional American conservation
ethi c of Muir, Leopold , Sauer and
Dasmann to the innate i conoclasm

mindlessness of the status quo. The

Can Evans Juggle It?
as an alternative to building up a staff
which would be too large and not sustainable after a couple of years.
(PI: What do you think can be done to
make WPPSS more accountable?
Evans: That's a good question, and I'm
sure will be among ,the more difficult
questions we'll have to face.' I don't think
the Power Council itself is going to face
the question of how to makeWPPSS more
accountable, but perhaps what we
ultimately do will be an influence on
future decis ions taken by WPPSS. Our
task is to create an energy plan for the
next 20 years . And there are also some
specific priorities set in the act, conserva. tion being number one, and renewabl e
resources number two. Conservation is
even given a 10 percent bonus , so that it's
to be preferred even if the costs are up
10 percent higher than other alternatives.
It cou ld be that we'll end up with the
needs assessment and the power projection s against the cost showing that WPPSS
4 and .'i are absolutely needed as part of
the overall projections for the next 20
And I suppose it's possible that the
Counci l cou ld say, " Look , it's foolish to
spend the additional amount of money
necessary . We ought to cut our losses and
move to these morE' efficient and inexpen sive ways of gaining the necessary power."
I think one of thE' th ings th at would bp
most hellJful for WPPSS would be the
development of an appointed Board of
Director<; which cou ld givp some ~ i gnifi­
cant help to thp managers. Thpy now
havE' to ciepend on an f'xecutive commi t-

tee and a board made up of PUD commissioners and public power heads from
various parts of the state. And frankly, I
think it's accurate to say there's not a
whole lot of overall experience involved,
and I think that's been one of the problems from the very beginning. It was a
small entity which had only minor respon- .
sibilities that suddenly exploded into a
very large .
(PI : Suddenly it had the largest construction project in the world on its
hands ..
Evans :
oh, yes. And that grew
almost instantly. Looking baEk now, of
course, with the enormous clarity of hindsight, at the time we approved the nuclear
plants for WPPSS, we probably should
have realized that it was also time to reconstruct WPPSS and give it the necessary
help and guidance to fulfill that responsibility
(PI : As governor of Washington, you
approved construction of WPPSS 1-5. In
an interview with the Seattle PI last
November, you indicated that you were tJ
apprphensivp about th e construct ion of
the Satsop units because WPPSS had
asked for provisions allowing them to
exceed water usage and thermal discharge
levels larger than those originally forecasted, thu s possibly threatening the
ecologicd l balance of the Satsop River .
You "l id " Those plants would never have
been approved if I had known they were
gOlllg to do that. " Now that you see m to

( PI . On October b, 1980, Southern California l::dison's chairman, William Gould
announced to the press "a major change
in the way we do bu siness ." The change
consisted of a declaration of intent to

generating fa cility beyond that which was
already in construct ion and instead, to
pursue the "accelerated development of

a wide range of future electrical power
sources which are renewable rather than
finite. These include wind, geothermal,
solar, small hydroelectriC and also an
emphasis on cogeneration, conservation
and load-management." To my knowledge,
this is the first public statement of a '
m,ajor utility company of a very clear
intent to forego the nuclear option. Do
you have any reaction or tesponse to that
as a precedent that may affect your
Evans: It' s difficult to know how it' ll
influence our planning, but I think it's
both intere,sting and provocative and
probably a pretty wise statement.
I think Gould is reflecting the enormous
problems which currently are afoot in
building nuclear plants. The fact that
they're terribly difficult to control the
costs on and that, as a result, their
analysis has apparently shown them that
these other sources may be more beneficial. I'm not sure that change is a reflection of distaste on his part for nuclear
energy. I think it's just a reflection of the
economic outlook. I suspect others may
find similar an~wers .
I think we've got to change some of our
attitudes, perhaps even some of our tax
laws and other laws so that there is a real
benefit to the utility in remaining healthy
financially by ga ining its new electric
capacity through conservation or through
better utili zat ion , more eff ici~n cy in the
power base that they already have.
I'm as convinced as I can be, that by
the turn of the century, maybe we wil l be
starti ng an era, in terms of energy, where
we will have adequate, reasonably priced,
environmentall y-appropri ate energy
(PI : You mentioned that utilities, under
law, cannot now refuse hook-up to new
customers. Do you favor any altering of
that law so that, particularly with industrial customers, the utilities would have
some leeway in that regard 1
Evans : I think there ought to be some
involvement of the individual states and
communities in what is appropriate and
needed . My first call for a state involvement in Bonnevill e came with a notorious
case 11 years ago with Northwest Aluminum , where a company got an allocation

of power directly from Bonneville. That's
the only thing they had. It was a company
that had never turned out a pound of
aluminum . It was a paper company and
they had been given, essentially free, an
exceptionally valuable commodity in a
power contract.
It was such a notorious case of a·
federal agency whose sole responsibility
. was ppwer production and direct power
sales that it didn't take into account' the
overall economic needs or desires of any
of the states in the Northwest. I think the
advent of the council is a very, very important, long-needed requirement to fully
have the voice of the states and the
people of the states recognized .
(PI : A critical factor in how fast we
continue to grow is that question of electrical rates.
Evans: It may be that they will want to
make the choice on the kind or type of
industry to give us a more diverse base.
Someone said that aluminum plants with
only 3-300 employees use more electriCity
than Boeing uses with 80,000 employees,
which is very true, except that Boeing
wouldn't be open for very long if they
didn't have a whole lot of aluminum
coming in. Our current economy and
society is so interrelated that you can't
always do everything you'd like to do.
(PI: On a national scale, there seems
to be more emphasis being put into
nuclear power rather than renewabl e.
How do you see that affecting the
Cou ncil's choices 1
Evans : I think we' ll have to look at the
alternatives which exist here in the Northwest. We' re fortunate w ith the amount of
hydro-power available, much more than
any other part of the cou ntry . We still
haven't fully utili zed that source. There's
got to be additional review of low-head
hydro facilities as 'part of the answer. I
don 't think there:s any source of power
we can absolutely deny and no source of
power we ca n say, today, is the prime

by Andy McCormick
It is a dark cold morning in the Depression . Through the blackness the headlights
of a car move up a country road. Silence.
The ca r pulls off the road and picks up a
hitchhiker. The new passenger is Frank
(Jack Nicholson), an unemployed drifter,
on his way to L.A. He will never get there.
The car drives slowly into the distant
gathering light.
This sequence opens director Bob
Rafelson's new movie The Postman Always
Rings Twice. Now the ending. Frank is on
hi s hands and knees weeping by the side
of a country road on a warm, sunny afternoon. He has just lost everything. The
only place he has left to go is the electric
Thus the symbolic journey of Frank in
The Postman : from darkness into light,
cold to heat, crime to punishment, depression to sorrow. The tight symmetry ot the
Postman is not accidental. Bob Rafelson
(Five Easy Pieces( is a painstaking director. Each shot in the movie is lingered
over, but not caressed; it is a vi'sually
beautiful film without being cloyingly


There is also a good deal of subtle cleverness in the Postman , both in the direction and script, by playwright David
Mamet. Two examples. Cora (jessica
Lange), bearing a sack of tra,ctor bearings ,
moves stealthily towards the bathroom '
where her husband is in the tub. She is
going to beat his brain s out with the bearings. Frank, her lover, waits nervously outside with the getaway car. As Cora sneaks
towards the bathroom, the camera catches
her between the shadows of the living
room and the light her head is in the
shadows, but her body in the light. She
has broken with laws and morality for the
sake of desi reo
Then, near the film 's end, Cora is pregnant and telling Frank, father to be, how
to act with children . She tells him there's
two things to remember with kids . The
first is that you must always be natural
and follow your instincts. Frank sort of
grins and says, I always follow my insti ncts. Cora never gets around to te lling
him what the second thing is.
Clever script, good direction, very good
acting .. .what's wrong with the Postman l

Blues Band Zaps

Well, two things. First, while the avowed
purpose of this produ ction is to be true
to the lames Cain novel, Rafel son doesn't
show Frank on death row. Instead , he
throws in a couple of scenes that at least
plotwi se are superfluous . (I 'm thinking of
the attempted blackmail scene and also
Frank's affair with the lion-tamer. ) The
result is that some of the packed, relentless tension of the Cain novel is lost, and
by compari so n, Postman 's pace is more
relaxed-and at times sacrifi ces intensi ty
for elegance. The film by no means drags,
but it isn' t the head long rush into Evil and
Doom that it might be.
Pace is one problem and proportion
another. The film reaches an anti-climax
after Frank and Cora rub out her husband ,

Still the Postman is quite good. Sexual
desirl-', des[lite Moral Majority , is a part of
li fe. sometimes an overwhelmi ng part.
Cora and Frank are doomed by their des ire
for onE' another and yet they ca nnot li ve

Few people ca n musi ca lly express the heart and soul of trad itional Chicago blues like The Legendary Blues Band . The band
delivered a forceful , soulful performance to a very receptive audience last Wednesday night at Astair's .
As the li ghts went down, the band jumped into an instrumental
after which they introduced themselves as trulY .legendary blues
players . The band proved their experti se throughout the eveni ng's
two sets to a ca pacity crowd. By the third song, the crowd was
up and dancing and kept dancing the rest of the night.
Playing such great blues hits as "Mean Mistreater," "Hootchie
Cootchie Man," "Sweet Sixteen" and "Got my Mojo Working,"
the veteran blues musi cians demonstrated their great talent by
delivering innovative solos in their gut-level songs.
"P inetop" Perkins on piano expressed the ultimate substance
of the blues whenever he took the solo, looking into the eyes of
reveling dancers and using their interaction to bring even more
e~pression into his piano licks . Jerry Portnoy's screaming harp
took command each time he jammed . Louis Myers, who played
with Little Walter in the '50s, had a cool air even while playing
scintillating guitar riffs. Calvin Jones, bass, and Willie Smith,
drums, completed the rhythm section of the well-rounded band .
The band pleased the listeners with such tunes as " Kansas
City" and "Caledonia." With sweat beading on his forehead,
"Pinetop" played a consistent, artful piano. Though he is considered to be the leader of the band, all the members performed
so well that their expertise would be difficult to compare.
Comments by the crowd were entirely favorable . Most people
hoped that this brand of the blues would be played more often
in Olympia. Comparing the night's event to bands that used to
play at the Evergreen Ballroom, a local jazz musician proposed
that blues could be coming back and could reach the heights it
knew in the heyday of the ballroom. Other folks suggested that

and then, by a fluke, are acquitted . After
the Fall, so to speak, the film's narrative
force lessens ' you know something awful
will happen to Frank and Cora , that they
will pay for their sins, and it is o nl y a
question of how. The mosl interesti ng
hour IS the first.

a regular series of blues and jazz concerts would certainly improve the cultural night life of Olympia.
The Legendary Blues Band has a long heritage as a cla ss ic Chi cago blues band. The band has formerly backed Muddy Waters,
toured with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Eric Ciapton and
appeared in the " Blues Brothers" movie. The band has also
played two com mand performances at the White House.
With people standing on tables, crowding the aisles and the
dance floor, the Legendary Blues Band finished out the night.
with the Bill Doggett standard. " Honky Tonk" and Freddie King's
" Hide away ." W ithout a doubt, the band drew people into
Astair's who would usually go elsewhere to satiate their musical
tastes and made blues believers out of the folks who normally
patro~ize Astair's for its hard rock and roll bands .

A five-member cast combini ng community and college th~atrical talent has
been selected for Evergreen's Spring Quarter production of Voices, slated for April
29-May '2 in the Experimental theatre of
thp Communications Building.
Directed by adjunct faculty member
Ruth Palmerlee, the play speaks directly
about the experi ence of being a woman.
" It revolves around poetic tales of indi vidual lives, told by a quintet 0.1 women
who don't know o r speak to each other
throughout the play. " I nstead, " explains
Palmerlee, "each woman tells her story to
the audience, then their voices begin to
speak in counterpoi nt until, finally, they
become a chorus and their lives are no
longer separate or isolated."
Cast in the play by Susan Griffi n are
Evergreen students Karen Hatcher of
Galvin, Washington, and Ruth Reed of
Olympia, alumna Sarah Favret , and Olympia community members Bernice Youtz
and Patty Needham .
Voices, because it ~rates from no
standard story line, relies heavily upon
each performer to convey the life story
of each character's "voice." In this reg'ard,
Voices is as mu ch a casting exercise as
anything else-bringing a fully developed
personality to the stage which can
transform a simple narrative into an
entertainin g story-in-progress.
As the production set~ sights on its
April 29 opening, this process of tranformation is gathering momentum. Already ,
weeks of intensive " introspection sessions "
have merged each actresses' personal biography with her scripted one. Ruth Reed ,
Evergreen student and Olympia Little
Theatre veteran , views the gradual metamorphosis as a process in which each is
left withou t any of the stock convent ions .
"We don't go out there as a character in
some bigger pi cture," she sa id . There is
no distance between the audi ence and
ourse lves. When we go on , all we've got
is what parts of the characters we've man aged to develop within ourselves."
Voices is more than a glance into the
li ves of fiv e women . It is a penetrating
view of their innermost se lves - the mind ,
spirit, and experience of each character
lying totally open.
Their opening night performance, set
for 8:00 p.m. April 29, will be staged as a
benefit for the YWCA Women's Shelter in
memory of Colleen Hunt Spencer, an
Evergreen graduate who helped to found
the organization . Tickets for the benefit
cost $10.00 and may be obtained through
YWCA, 352-0593
Tickets for the other four performances,
set for 8:00 p.rn. April 30 and May 1, 2and 3 sell for $2.00 general and $1 .00 for
students and senior citizens and mav be
obtained through the Evergreen Bookstore, Rainy Day Records or The Book
mark in South Sound Center. Reservations

It's a narrow stair, and a tiny hall, and the door bangs
in the wind . Down the stairwell shaft, shadowed in grey
noon gloom, outside the apartment, inside the creak ing,
swinging porch doorthere' s a man on the stair in the hall. He has empty
eyes, and a grey beard like a lost ocean tide . His cane
mumbles against the wall, his face bowed in tears . His
white cane stutters on the steps; he is leaning on the
wall with one hand, withered like his last root, clinging
to the building. He is swinging his cane like the rattled
door, and where his feet shuffle on the landing, the stairs
are too high for him to climb .
And the cane is crashing on the walls, bouncing on the
steps, leaping precariously from tier to tier . His eyes
are bleared and blank, and tears stream through the surf of
hi s hair . He turns blindly toward the door, but it slams
and slams, and his cane is only confused.
He is forgotten on the last stair, the old man in our
hall , and the door sighs and sloughs in the wind .

The Real Inspector Hound, a one-act
comedy by British playwright Tom
Stoppard, will be presented to a limited
house this April 16, 17, 18 in Cab 306.
Tom Stoppard, the author of Rosencrantz and Cuildestern Are Dead, has
created a looking-glass comedy of great
suspense and intrigue. Two drama critics,
each preoccupied with his professional
status and personal dissatisfaction, go to
the theater to see a new thriller. With
great dexterity and comic talent, Mr.
Stoppard involves these professional
observers in the play with results that
prove surprisingly serious for both. The
double-image technique of this playwithin-a-play makes it theater with a complexity of feeling and level of achievement
that is as exciting, as it is rare.
Complete with maids, revolvers, and
bodies, the cast includes many familiar
faces to Evergreen's student-produced
theater circuit, including Scott Jamieson
and Lewis Pratt as the two critics . Craig
Corbett Smith, Cynthia Herrmann, David
H. Smart, Nancy Welborn, Jenny Davis,
and Steve " a fool, a fool " Smith as Inspector Hound, fill out the cast in an out,landish assortment of comic stereotypes.
The Real Inspector Hound is produced
and directed by Evergreen freshman
David Baker.
" Inspector Hound" will be presented
with extremely limited seating, so ti ckets
will be sold on a first come-first serve
bas is.

Shadows running from the ground
in a watercolor alley . .
There's no one in the doorway s,
no old feet shuffle in the debris ;
the voices in the dark
are wild arguments of your imagination .
No cat leaps from the garbage,
not the tired rustle of a Pilper bag
and an old, twisted hand .
Just the wind howling softly between
empty-mouth windows ;
just tossing dust-devils,
whirling candy-wrappers . .
hand in hand they caper.
The tear-eyed sky bears down ,
not foot steps on concrete stairs.
just raindrops on the garbage cans.
Not a sharp shout beyond,
just a broken blind
snapp ing agains t the clouds.
Not rats scuttling,
no shrieks behind broken gla ss pan es,
no ca t~ growling in the trash ;
only a whistling wind in your bon es
and an empty alley .
The co lors fade and run in th e rain ,
shadows melt int o the ground .





In her cas tl e oj thp past ,
I am fo reign .
