Third World Hiring Policy Under Att-by Emi Iy Brucker
The Evergreen State. Col lege has historically had difficulties recruiting and retaining Third World faculty members .
Tho ugh m embers of the Third World community have bee n meeting with the .
adminl s'tration since last December in an
eifort to address the issue, they are not
sati sfi ed with the admini strati on's
res ponse
" There ha s been no seriou s effort to
recruit new Third World faculty," said
Leroi Smith, an Evergreen facu lty member
for ten years . " The administrati on has
been crying that there is no money to
recruit. "
Smith claims that the administration
relies on ads in hopes that a qualified
Third World faculty will see them and
apply. This is the most inefficient way to
recruit minority faculty," Smith charges.
Smith is one of many faculty and staff
members who feel that minority recruitment of both students and faculty is the
main issue facing Third World people at
Evergreen .
In 1974, a non-white DTF recommended
that all vacancies in employment which
occurred on campus in the following two
years be fi lled by minorities and women.
The committee also requested that the
academic deans " step up the hiring of
qualified non-white faculty to reach the
25 percent Affirmative Action goals as
soon as possible, regardless of student
According to the Affirmative Action
officer Rebecca Wright, the national availability of Third World faculty is about 7.5
per 100. This figure compares to the
October 1980 minority faculty at Evergreen of 13 per 100.
Wright said that the 25 percentage ratio
hiring goal was " pulled out 9f a hat" in
1974, and that it was not estimated from
past statistics. She wishes tha-t the
projected goal of 25 percent for 1980 had
been more realistic. According to' Wright,
in the future the goals will be projected
Philip Cornelius jones, a 1980 graduate
o f Evergreen who works for Employment
Security, believes that the Evergreen admini stration and faculty hiring OTF's have

ignored these two recommendations of
the 1974 non·white DTF
jones said that minority recruitment of
bo th stud ents and fac ulty is the major
issue facing Third W orld people at
Evergreen .
I ac uity member LeRoi Sm ith is res ignin g thi s yea r parll y because of the sc hool's
lack of success in recrui ting Third World
faculty, and for f inan cial reasons . "The
sc hool has traditionally had poor view s of
higher education a nd as a result the
faculty has abominably low salaries,"
Smith charged.
Another concern of Third Wor ld people
at Evergreen is that of retention . " The
school has not put it's best foot forward
to retain Third World faculty," said Philip
"New Third World faculty is alienated
at Evergreen because there is no encouragement for the faculty to stay when
they don't teach the Evergreen way of
jones said that the college's location
interferes with its ability to recruit and
retain Third World students and faculty .
" That's why they stuck Evergreen in the
woods in the first place," he said.
Third World faculty member. Wini
Ingram, who has been at Evergreen since
1972, agrees with jones that the campus'
rural setting doesn't attract potential Third
World faculty. She says that the college
needs to recruit more "minority hicks ."
" The ones (Third World faculty and
students) that leave, are the ones that
don't like small towns because they're
from urban settings."
Ingram also said that the likelihood of
reaching a 25 percent Third World faculty
ratio is small because of the school 's
Third World faculty members on leave

The $26,575,000 operating budget approved by the legislature last week will
all ow Evergreen's enrollment to increase
significantly over the next biennium according to Les Eldridge, ASSistant to'the
President and lobby ist for Evergreen. " It's
a good budget," Eldridge said. " It wi ll
allow us to'continue our growth,"
But the new operating budget, an increase of about $4 million over the last
budget, will not allow the College to meet
enrollment figures targeted in a Council '
on post-Secondary Education report on
Evergreen . That report set a goal of about
3050 full 't ime students to be enrolled by
1982-83 if Evergreen is to continue in its
present form .
That a lack of fu nding, instead of a
failure to recruit more students will prevent Evergreen from meeting the CPE
guidelines is " pretty well understood by
legislators," Eldridge said, Earlier in the
session Vice President Byron Youtz had
testifi ed before the Senate Higher Edu-

cation Committee concerning the contradict ion between funding levels and
enrollment requirements .
On Sunday, the last official day of the
current sess ion, the legislature also approved a new capital budget for the
Coll ege whi ch provides funding for buildings, equipment, and general faci litiesrel ated areas. Eldridge said he is very
pleased with the capita l budget since it
provides funding for, among other things ,
plans for a gymnasium building.
The $270,000 alloted will allow the
College to draw up detailed working plans
for the gym which will then be presented
to the legislature during the next session .
Total cost of the gym is estimated at approximately $4.5 million ,
The cap ital budget also includes $530,
000 to resurface the leaky Library roof
and $61,000 to correct the same problem
in the Seminar building, Energy improvements were granted $120,000 and the
soccer field construction project garnered
$580,000, Eldridge said .

The exec utioner's song may soon be
sung in Washington state. A bill allowing
death by hanging passed the Senate by a
30-17 margin and is on its way to Governor
Spellman 's desk . If hanging is declared
unconstitutional by the Supreme Court,
the bill provides for a new means of extermination to be used- lethal inject ion .
Representative Andy Nesbit (R-Sequim)
gave the House a much needed shot in
the arm Thursday night with a rather witt)
parabl e co ncerning an ethi cs bill . The bill
had been introduced this session in the
wakp of the Gamscam scandal and the
rpa,on Nesbit opposed it was because the
bill was n't rigorous enough for him. Heno

of you has enough faith to have brought
an umbrella. (Meaning that the legislators,
in their heart of hearts, know that the bill
won't really outlaw abuses.) After Nesbit
finished, a Democrat unfurled a bright red
umbrella for which the House gave her a
cheering ovation. Speaker Polk asked,
amidst the uproar, "Does anyone dare
speak now?" A vote was then taken and
the ethics bill passed despite Rep . Nesbit's
efforts .
. Senator Metcalf {R-LangleyJ, much maligned in these pages, certainly got the
goat of Senator Goltz (O-Whatcom Co.)
during debate on an amendment to raise
hunting fees for mountain sheep from $11
to $150. Goltz, who sponsored the amend'ment, said the revenue passed would
allow the Game Dept to maintain the
dwindling mountain sheep population .
Metcalf sa id the amendment would make
mountain sheep hunting "a sport for the
rich, " and Senator Rasmussen (O-Tacoma),
concurring, said the " increase isn't a tax
but a usury (get it?) fee. It proves you can
pass anything you want in this session ."
Considering the spate of' bills that went
through duri ng the last week of session,
otherwise known as the final daze. Rasmussen may be right. Bills raising the
taxes on the essentials of life, cigarettes
and booze passed, as well as a gas tax
and big increases in the cost of licensing
your car .
Everybody seems to be "sharing the
misery" wrought by the Republican's
budget except the corporations: one of
Spellman's pet projects, a bill allowing the
sa le of publ!.!: bonds to finance private
industry, passed .
Evergreen 's own Dan Evans was confirmed by the Senate over the week end as
one of Washington State's two representatives on the Pacific Northwest Electric
Po wer and Conservation Planning Counc il.

No Exceptions to
Freedom of the Press
House Bill 626, whi ch would have
allowed the vague "community standard~"
doctri ne to -determi ne the acceptabi Iity
and accessibility of all written and recorded material , w as recently deep-sixed
during State Senate hearings. The proposed intent of this bill was to do away
with shops and boutiques which supposedly pander obscenity by selling ,
eroti ca to adults.
Moral Majority leader Mike Farris spoke
for the bill's supporters by claiming that
HB 626 would attack only the sleazy filth
emporiums that populate the run-<Jown
sect ions of state metropolitan areas.
Owners of " real " bookstores and authors
of " rea l" books need not fear the bi II's
ominous implications, according to Farris
and Co.
Proponents of free speech and other
"civil libertarians" condemned the bill
because its constitutionality is questionable. Prestigious authors of "legitimate"
prose called it a threat to great literature.
Such renowned classics as Brave new
World, Catch 22, and Catcher in the Rye
were cited as potential blacklist
candidates .
The desire to save the classics from the
bookburners is well intentioned and noble
but the tone of the mainstream literary
community is somewhat sanctimonious.
Fearing accusations of guilt by association
they have eschewed the pornographers
with much the same kind of intensity dis-

played by the religious zealots . One gets
the impressio n that some people opposed
HB 626 not because it was unconstitutional, but because it could possibly deny
future generations the insights of Kerouac
and Kesey .
Where do we draw the line between
smut and " acceptable" adult literature! Is
there, in fact, any real need to distinguish
between the subtle nuance of Lady
Chatterly's Lover and the sensual urgency
of Sorority Sex Kittens? Aside from the
obvious aesthetic considerations, why
should any form of literature be lent more
legitima cy than pornography, hardcore or
otherwise 1
One of the most tried truisms of life is
that there is a good and a bad to almost
everything that exists. In terms of dealing
with the artistic expression of human sexuality, pornography may very well be bad
art, but it is not inherently evil. Sex is a
fact of life and its exploitation is a fairly
natural progression. Pornography has
always been with us and it will continue
to exist despite all attempts at censorship.
If thi s is to remain a free and democratic society, ALL forms of human
expression must be protected. Though
many may find it distasteful, sexually
explicit material must be permitted to
coexist with the more traditional art forms
or the term "freedom of speech" will
become a joke. If the citizenry allows the
politicians to confiscate smut, then only
the politicians will have smut.

KAOS boasts that they only play nonco mmerc ial mu sic. Pressu re a KAOS perso n into defining co mmercial and this is
what they' ll say ... . "Commercial music is
what the other radio stations play. It's the
stuff you hear a lot." Well all the economics students out there know that a radio
station run s on ratings . When you play
what people want to hear, then you get
the ratings.
Why doesn't KAOS ever publish their
ratings 1 'Is it possible that they don't have
any li ste ners, besides the people in the

people want to hear. Therefore they must
be playing what people don' t want to
hear .
The junk that KAOS tries to pass off as
music (sorry ja zz and classical people)
just worsens an already bad reputation
that Evergreen has of being a place for

T he people who run KAOS don 't care

A ccording to Low ry , the Duarte reg im e' s

major flaw with the program, Lowry main tained , is that it does not free th e

It's a play that " speaks directly to
women about women ," explains Palmerlee. " It revolves around poetic tales five
women share without ever talking to or
interacting with each other . Instead, each
woman sits calmly amongst the audience,
candidly opening the story of her life to
others and thereby redUCing her own

Excalibur: Style Over .Substance

Earthfair! -

by Phil Everling
Popular cinema has rediscovered sword
and sorcery adventure and movie audiences ca n expect to be deluged with a
glut of doubled-edged epics over the next
severa l months.
Exealibur is the forerunner in the
knig hts-i n-shining-armour film derby that
w ill also includ e such big budget blockbusters as ' Dragbnslayer, Clash of the '
Titans, and Conan the Barbarian. The
success of these and other medieval fantasy fi lm s may depend upon the degree of
popu lar acceptance afforded Exealibur.
Orion Pictures, a fledgling production distributi on outfit, is banking on a boffo
box office reaction to their pet project
Exealibur, in an attempt to catapu lt into
the big time . Newspapers ads for this
picture have adopted this promotional
blurb " In the grand tradition of Star Wars! "
This is a blatant, albeit und erstandable,
attempt to cash in on filmdom's alltime
leading moneymaker, and there are, indeed , several simil arities between Excalibur and Star Wars
As evidenced in the aforementioned
megabuck space opera, Exealibur relies
heavily on specia l effects hardware to the
detriment of character development. Both
film s are primarily visual, and both films
feature sweeping, melodramatic orchestral
soundtracks. There is also a parallel to be
drawn between the main protagonists of
these two movies. They are unitormly

larger than life, heroic figures with about
as much real life, human emotion as a set
of cardboard cutouts.
Whether or not Excalibur ever approaches the same mass appeal which
made Star Wars a household word, remains to be seen . However, it seems
highly unlikely that Exea l/bur will achieve
phenomenal or even more-than-moderate
success because of these two factors 1) it
is a retelling of an old familiar tale , and
2) it is a disappOintment which fails to
li ve up to its pre-release hype. But still ,
all things said and done, this is a film
worth seeing.
Anyone who ha sn't been holed up in a
fallout she lter for the past thirty year s has
sure ly heard of that quasi-kinky menage a
trois , Art hur , Gu enevere, and Lancelot ,
not to mention the rest of the whole
Knights of Round Table schlick. Camelot ,
King Arthur's fabled silver kingdom and
Excalibur, the legendary " sword in the
stone ," even the Holy Grail ; all the
accoutrements of the legend, they 're all
here .
I f one can overlook some of the cornier
aspec ts of the storyline and Ignore the
wooden performanc es of the three young
leads, then Excalibur can provide the
moviegoer with a cornucopia of visua l
trpats . This film contains possib ly the
most dazzling scenes of ext ravagant pageantry and the mmt graphica ll y bloody

battle scenes ever committed to ce lluloid .
A substantial amount of money has obviously been in vested for costumes, set
designs, and special effects for this film.
The knights' armour suits are particularly
impressive, however, the histori cal
accuracy of their design is suspect.
For those who abhor the cinematic
depi c tion of Viole nce, be forewarned :
Excalibur abounds in severed limbs and
pierced thoraxes . Life was cheap In 6th
ce ntury Eng land and knights thought little
of engag ing in some good natured blood
letting before knocking off for a hearty
lunch of beef dnd ale . Therefore. it can
be arguer! Ihis film's violence is necessary
