Many have found it
hard to adjust to
life after having
served as governor..
I've found Evergreen
a breath of fresh
air and, in some
senses, a relief"



The decision to accept
the college presidency and
begin what he calls "my third
career" came after lengthy
considerations with his wife
Nancy, their three sons, and
with himself.
"I wanted a job that was
challenging as being governor," he recalled in a recent
interview. "That's one of the
best jobs in the world. Every
day is different and exciting—and there was always
an opportunity to see the
results of your efforts."
Offered jobs throughout
the country—ranging from
corporate chief executive to
head of major foundations—
Evans said he decided early
on to stay within the State of
Washington and to find a job
that didn't require the kind of
extensive travel away from
home his 20 years in politics
had demanded. But, he
wanted a challenge, one that
provided stimulation and was
aptly suited to his skills.
Then, he remembers, "the
Evergreen offer came along
and it clicked.
"My background seemed
to mesh with what appeared
to be Evergreen's needs at
the time," he says. "Academically, the college was doing
fine and had already gained
a national reputation within
higher education circles. But,
Evergreen needed to begin
looking outside the campus—to concentrate on gaining better public understanding."
As governor, Evans had
followed and actively supported the creation and
development of the state's

new four-year college and
he'd come to feel he understood what Evergreen was all
about. That assumption, he
recalls, became the basis for
one of his first surprises in
his new job.
"I had read all the documents about Evergreen; I'd
followed its progress and I
thought I knew more about
the college before I arrived
than I actually did," he
admits. Once aboard, the
new president found the college's methods of governance
and, in fact, the very nature
of Evergreen required some
time to truly understand.
"I expected to find a
much more streamlined system of governance," he says.

"I was surprised that this
new institution that didn't
have academic departments
or other divisions common to
organizations seemed to require an inordinately long
time to make a decision."
The volume of paperwork
also surprised the former
legislator. "It's probably not
as bad as it might be in other
educational institutions," he
laughs. "I don't know that.
But, compared to state government, the people at Evergreen sure do like to talk
on paper."
A refreshing surprise for
Evans, he remembers, was

the college's informality.
Nearly everyone called him
Dan within the first week;
few referred to him as "Governor," a term that often
follows former office holders
throughout their lives.
"Many of my colleagues
found it hard to adjust to life
as ordinary citizens after
having served as governors
and as the centers of attention," Evans says. But he
found the transition to the
informal collegiate atmosphere "a breath of fresh air
and, in some senses, a
After completing his
third term as governor, Evans
and his family took a fourmonth trip to Europe which
gave him, he says, a chance
to adjust to informality and
to prepare for the change of
pace that starting a new
job—and a new way of family
"Now I don't miss very
much from the governorship," he reflects, "except
the driving." He still gets
"really annoyed" with having
to "waste my time driving a
car to a Seattle meeting
when as governor I was able
to sit in the back, keep right
on working, and let someone
else worry about the traffic."
His solution, he adds,
"is to make my wife a fullshare partner, especially
when it comes to Seattle
Now half-way through
his first six-year presidential
term, Evans is constantly
asked, "How much longer?"
Reporters speculate on federal appointments, major
national organizations con-

stantly seek to tempt him
away, and students wonder
how long one of the state's
best-known politicians will
stay "out of action."
"I deliberately haven't
looked ahead, beyond my
first term," he declares.
"After six years, the Board of
Trustees can review my
'actions and progress and
decide whether they want to
offer me a second term. Then
I'll decide."
Working with those
trustees proved to be a new
experience for Evans, who
had not reported "to a board
or anyone else in 20 years."
As an engineer, he was a
member of a partnership; as
governor he was nearly inde-

pendent. As president he
"had to get used to reporting
to a board, to figuring out
how much should be approved by them, how much
was totally delegated to me."
When Evans assumed
the presidency, four of the
trustees were holdovers from
his 12-year administration;
one was newly named by
Governor Dixy Lee Ray. Press
speculation focused on
"what will happen when Ray
has the majority on Evergreen's board." What happened, Evans points out,
"was a changing of the guard

that was accomplished remarkably well—thanks to a
superb job by both the new
trustees and the old guard."
He credits recently retired trustee Herb Hadley of
Longview with helping make
that transition a smooth one.
"Herb likes people and gets
along well with them. He had
the ability to break tension
and to make the new trustees
feel welcome."
In his three years as
president, Evans says, the
trustees "have been extremely supportive, interested, and sometimes bewildered by the way we do
things. But they've all become closely attuned to what
we're doing and each has
made important contributions
to the college."
Among recent accomplishments are a number of
things about which Evans
feels "we can all feel proud."
And, as is customary for this
engineer, he's got the charts
to prove it. This fall Evergreen's enrollment is the
highest in the school's
history. Not only that, Evergreen's rate of increase
(13.8%) is the highest among
the state's public colleges
and universities. And, the
projections sound even better for next year.
Evans believes the enrollment increase reflects "an
incredibly good, collective
team effort." He shys away
from taking credit for the
growth, but, when pushed,
admits he has contributed to
fhe admissions drive.

"We've come a long way
toward using a more common language to explain purselves," he says. "I was dismayed at first by the jargon
we used to describe ourselves—and by our reluctance to reach out to the
public to make sure they
understood what we were
/"When I first listened to
our approach, it seemed we
continued to describe Evergreen in terms of what it
wasn't. Now," he adds, "we
emphasize our good side. We
don't say, 'We don't have
grades'; instead, we say,
'We have something better
than grades—individualized,
in-depth evaluations that tell
you much more than a mere
letter grade'."
Evergreen's standing
among the state's legislators
is also much better than it
was in 1977 when Evans
came aboard.
"We're in a much stronger
position now," he says.
"They have a better understanding of what we're doing
and their actions won't be
directed solely at us. Instead,
they'll be treating us as a
part of all of higher education, maybe even with a
special response because
they have given us a legal,

specified growth pattern to
achieve, something the other
schools don't have."
Evan's concern for "all of
higher education" has become a major focus of his
efforts this fall in his new
role as chairman of the
Council of Presidents, a body
which includes the heads of
all four-year public institutions. In that post, he'll
speak for all six schools—
and he'll work cooperatively
to represent common views
held by the two-year community colleges as well.
While recognizing that
the state's resources—
especially tax dollars—will
be in short supply and high
demand when the new session begins in January,
Evans is optimistic a good
case can be made for continued strong financial support
for higher education.
"Washington state ranks
second in the nation in the
percentage of its population
involved in higher education,"
he points out.. "We're also
ranked sixth in per capita
income. There's a strong
correlation between those
two—between a strong and
healthy economy, one that
has a productive work force,
and one that has a good system of higher education.
"If the legislature, by
accident or on purpose,
starts to tear down our high
quality education system,"
he warns, "we'll quickly see
the results in a reduced
One of Evans "major
challenges in the next year"
is to make that point to every
legislator with whom he can
meet. At each opportunity,
he says, he'll discuss the
combination of unique elements that makes Washington's system of higher education so special.
"We have an excellent
research institution in the

University of Washington,
a fine land-grant university in
Washington State University,
three superb regional universities in Eastern, Western
and Central, and Evergreen,
which has secured a national
reputation for its innovative
approaches. In addition," he
adds, "we have one of the
largest community college
systems in the country in
terms of student enrollment.
"That's why Washington's at the top nationally,
both in percent of persons
enrolled in higher education
and in measured productivity, which in a recent study
is more than 20 percent
above the national average,"
he asserts.
"Sure," he admits, "we
are spending a lot on higher
education in this state—but
it's a sound investment in
our future."
When he considers Evergreen's future, Evans says he
sees enrollment topping off
at about 3500 students.
"We'll have a stabilized,
selective enrollment—one
that enables us to do a fine
job of the kind of education
we're best at," he predicts.
"We'll have graduate school
programs in fields like environmental studies and
public administration which
relate directly to state government. We'll expand our
outreach programs to serve
the needs of persons who
may not be of typical college
ages. We'll continue to
develop special programs in
Clark and Pierce Counties.
And, we'll tailor programs for
smaller communities like
Port Angeles on rotating twoyear cycles."
And the chart to each of
those goals will doubtlessly
be drafted at the Evans desk,
on his paper pads where
today's facts and figures can
be graphed into tomorrow's
projections and realities.

Enrollment Hits New High
Evergreen's Fall Quarter enrollment is the highest in
the campus's 10-year history,
and the overall increase of
13.8 percent -is the highest
among Washington's six
public colleges and universities.
Registrar Walker Allen
reported a final total of 2,805
students, compared to last
fall's 2,514, or the school's
previous (1976) high of 2,636.
The full-time equivalent
(FTE) count, which reflects
an adjustment for part-time
students, stood at 2,572,
topping Evergreen's previous
FTE high of 2,536 in 1974.
The FTE count for Fall
Quarter 1979 was 2,261—this
year's FTE was 311 higher,
for a total increase of 13.8
The 1980 count includes
36 new FTE graduate students in the master's in
public administration program. But, Allen notes, the
new fall count equals the
1974 FTE high even without
the graduate student totals.
An extensive public
awareness enrollment marketing program developed by
college staff, faculty, students and friends is credited

cational pathways in the
New students also enrolled in record numbers—
1,348 newcomers (including
graduate students) compared to 1,259 last year,
a 7 percent hike.
The number of southwest
Washington students increased by 10 percent (to
1,787) and Thurston County
residents attending showed
a slight increase, to 1,016
"We are very pleased
with enrollment figures this
fall," Fowler says, "because
they show we are responding
to educational needs identified by the community, the
region and the Legislature,
without reducing our commitment to providing quality
liberal arts learning opportunities."
The record high fall enrollment also indicates Evergreen will meet the overall
enrollment target for the year
established by the Legislature and the Governor's
budget office. The contract
goal for 1980-81 is 2,350
annual average FTE undergraduates, or 2,375 FTE including graduate students.

at 93%
Ninety-three percent of Evergreen's graduates have been
successfully placed in jobs,
graduate schools or other
situations of their choice,
according to a report issued
in October by the school's
Office of Career Planning and
The study, which covers
Evergreen's first eight graduating classes, shows a total
of 2,605 graduates have reported their activities to the
college's placement office.
All graduates were surveyed,
not just those who had contacted the office for help in
finding jobs.
Ninety-three percent
(2,416) have secured placement, according to Career
Planning Coordinator Joyce
Weston. Sixty-eight percent
(1,792) are now employed;
19% (507) are in graduate
schools; and 6% (147) are
traveling, homemaking or involyed in other activities of
their choice. Seven percent
(195) are seeking employment.

"The support we received
from individuals, campus
groups and community organizations has been outstanding," says College
Relations Director Chuck
Fowler, "Without all this
work and combined effort,
our success in attracting and
retaining a diverse and dedicated group of students
would have been impossible."
The number of full-time
students increased significantly this fall. According to
Allen, the total of 2,173
represents a 13.5 percent increase over last fall. The
part-time student count increased by 5.3 percent over
last year to a total of 632.
"It appears a significant
number of students this year
converted to full-time status,"
the registrar notes.
Retention was also significant in the enrollment
picture. This fall's continuing

The number of completed graduate degrees represents 6% of the alums
from 1971-78 who have reported their activities. That

"We know there are
many others who have earned
graduate degrees, but we
haven't been able to get
official verification from them
yet," says Weston, who is
also an Evergreen alum

higher education administration).
Figures on the Class of

to be surveyed, indicate

Modern astronomers believe
life is almost certain to originate on other planets, given
half a chance in the right
conditions. Evergreen faculty
member David Milne is not
so certain, but he had a
chance to look into the matter this past summer when
he joined a scientific team at
the NASA/Ames Research
center in California investigating aspects of extraterrestrial biology. The summer fellowship, which ran
June 23 through August 22,
was sponsored by the
National Aeronautics and
Space Administration as part
of an annual program to acquaint educators with NASA
research and development
"I began by putting together a list of questions
relating to extraterrestrial life

Life won't have much of a
chance on a planet where the
oceans freeze solid. In comparison with many planetary
environments, however,
earth's climate is regarded as
quite stable."
Milne exhausted his list
of questions fairly quickly,
finding that many were
answerable, at least on a
speculative basis. Then he
got involved in searching for
evidence of a specific extraterrestrial impact on earth
"NASA is developing an
interest in the impact of
events in outer space such
as supernovas and solar
flares on terrestrial evolution," he points out. One of
the most spectacular of such
events may have been a large
meteor striking a prehistoric
earth, blackening the sky

have currently," says the
TESC scientist. "There's not

we assume that evolution,

Milne, who received his
doctorate from Purdue University, is halfway through
a book on the subject of
extraterrestrial biology.
"Some questions were outcomes of that manuscript,"
he remarks, "such as to what
extent a planet's instability

"One big constant on
earth is that the environment
will change," he says, "and
environmental change is an
essential ingredient of evolution. However, conditions

with dust and debris much
like a recent volcanic eruption, though on a world-wide
scale. The long period of
darkness could have killed
off most plant life, and
caused the extinction of
many animal species through
starvation. Scientists have
recently found geological evidence that the cataclysmic
event may have ended the
Mesozoic era, or age of dinosaurs, and ushered in the
modern Cenozoic era.
"If this really occurred,
it could be considered a
fantastic stroke from outer
space, cleaning the slate and
paving the way for mammals," Milne remarks.
Evidence of the meteor's
impact is an iridium-rich
layer found between deposits
characteristic of the two
geological eras. The earth's
crust is too poor in iridium
to account for such concentrations, Milne says, and
they've been found in such

diverse places as Italy, Denmark, Spain and New
"As a marine biologist, I
worked to determine just
how long this period of darkness would have to be to
begin killing off life in the
oceans," Milne says.
He suspects that the delicate balance in the marine
food chain would be broken
by an interruption in photosynthesis lasting only a
month or two. This short
time-frame was significant,
since scientists had been debating whether meteorimpact dustcloud would remain airborne long enough to
cause widespread extinction
of plant and animal species.
It is, he feels, a possible
contributing factor to the
drastic changes that must
have taken place on earth to
spell the extinction of the
dinosaurs. Attempts to explain that evolutionary process are in "a state of
confusion," he says. "Some
think a supernova caused it,
others think the planet was
sterilized by radiation, and
many believe the earth's
climate just changed. Whatever theory you subscribe to,
though, it must now take
into account those layers of
"Extinction of species is
an ongoing process, with
extinctions balanced by
origins of new ones," points
out the Evergreen faculty
During the last Ice Age,
he says, "the number of new
species skyrocketed. Accelerated extinctions occurred
at the middle and end of the
period. Humans evolved in
the midst of a really unusual
Such findings have led
some to speculate that evolution is not the "glacially slow
process we'd once believed,"
Milne remarks. "Every organism contains the seeds of
change within its genetic
'structure, and individuals of
a population of animals will
have millions of subtle differences. A key question is
how large a difference has to
be before the process of
natural selection begins to
favor the hardier adaptation.
"This kind of research
makes you take another look
at life on earth—you begin to
appreciate the diversity,"
says the Evergreen professor.
"There are millions of divergent lines that have not been
tested here, and in an alien
environment you might get
some surprising variations.
Certain animals need not
look similar to familiar ones
on earth."
Of course, there may be
more similarity than some
science fiction writers would
lead us to believe. Cell structure, genetics, sensory perception and a host of other
factors probably operate according to general principles
throughout the universe.
Some scientists even feel
that intelligent, technological
creatures would evolve along
similar lines, and that our
first alien encounter would
be with warm-blooded
mammals that were vaguely
familiar, at least in shape.
Even those who readily
admit the possibility of life
on other planets, though, are
extremely skeptical about our
ever meeting face-to-face.

For 3,227 days—give or take
a few—KAOS radio has been
filling the Olympia airwaves
with music, news, radio
theater, commentary and
occasionally controversy.
The station broadcasts at
89.3 on the FM dial.
It first went on the air
January 1, 1972 with a mere
10 watts of power. Two and a
half weeks ago—some eight
years and 289 days later—
KAOS formally began broadcasting to all of the southern
Puget Sound area via a new
antenna and a powerful 1,800
watts. That's quite a jump
from a time when its signal
barely reached beyond the
narrow confines of a certain
cleared patch of west side
From the beginning the
KAOS studios have been
located in a "luxurious penthouse suite atop the College
Activities Building at The
Evergreen State College," as
a tongue-in-cheek, fundraising promotional tape puts
it. And tongue-in-cheek is an
often-apt description for the
high-spirited station. One
reason: it doesn't have to
answer to advertisers. There
are none. KAOS is one of
a relative handful of stations
nationwide that is commercial-free; it is a public
radio station, drawing financial support from Evergreen,
but also depending heavily
on listener support through
donations and individual

but they say one of the
funniest—and weirdest—
resulted in "The Rhinocerous
"One of the most creative
people around the station in
those early years was Bill
Hirshman," recalls Hall. "One
day he took a tape recorder
and walked around the campus, asking people to spell
'rhinocerous' for him."
"This was great," Cook
interjects, "because NO ONE
knows how to spell 'rhinoceros'!"
"Anyway," Hall continues, "he then got a tape of
rhinoceros sounds—really
bizarre calls, let me tell
you—and he put these weird
sounds in the background as
people desperately tried to
spell rhinoceros.
"And he played it on the
air. Really strange."
More than rhino calls
have gone over the air at
KAOS, of course. The station
has carried live lectures by
important and controversial
speakers like Iegalizedprostitution advocate Margo
St. James; done live broadcasts of concerts by such
acclaimed musicians as
Chick Corea and Keith
Jarret; and continues to
carry live the weekly Olympia
City Commission meetings.
As KAOS has grown, it
has changed and added to its
programming. It now has
a Sunday afternoon "Public
Forum" show; musical programming for nearly every

Another reason for the
carefree KAOS atmosphere is
the staff: largely young,
many college students,
mostly volunteer.
It's been that way from
the beginning, according to
two men who were there.
Mike Hall is now a counselor
in Evergreen's Cooperative
Education office. Back then
he was one of the "originals,"
one of the handful of people
who found the first transmitter in a church basement and
actually started the station.
Carl Cook is today a popular
DJ at KGY radio. He began
by working for four years at
KAOS while going to school
at Evergreen. "I was full-time

Cook recalls.

The Saturday evening reception and banquet dinner were
the high points of the weekend (literally for some!). Several
faculty and staff joined us for an excellent meal catered by

and the first Association honorary membership was presented
to Clayton Sturgis, now-retired campus security guard.
Reunion '80 was enjoyed by all, and we're already beginning to think about Reunion '81. We'd really like to hear from

Dues or Don'ts
At the annual meeting on September 6, the general membership of the Alumni Association voted to initiate a dues program. The issue was debated frequently for over a year and
the decision was not easily reached, but the circumstances
clearly justify the implementation of a dues program. Besides, $7.50 per year isn't a great hardship when the benefits
(to the Association and its individual members) are considered.
The issue is really that simple—dues or don'ts. These
funds are going to allow the Alumni Association to do a
number of things we wouldn't be able to consider otherwise.
Rather than enter into a broad philosophical discussion, it is
imperative that we examine the current situation and realize
that a dues schedule is a practical and expedient solution.
The Association is working to develop a nationwide network of Evergreen graduates. Some of our priorities are to
work on recruiting students, raising funds, and providing inside tips on employment possibilities and social events.
These things cost money, and right now the Association
can't afford to buy more than a dozen T-shirts at one time.
A harsh reality—it costs money to raise money.
At this point, the existence and support of the Alumni
Association depends, in large part, upon financial assistance
from the college. If the Association is going to establish itself as an effective support system for the college and its
alums—and retain some degree of independence—it is time
to build the necessary monetary foundation.
So, here's the pitch. Your $7.50 will enable the Association to advocate for alumni recognition. It will establish your
right to vote on Association issues and participate in the
election of its officers. And (an added bonus for charter
members) you'll get an alumni directory absolutely free. For
those of you who have wanted to become involved, but
haven't had the time, this is your opportunity to show your

The Alumni Association's
Regional Coordinating Committee has taken a long hard
look at the formation of
regional alumni chapters
across the United States.
Because Evergreen graduates
are surfacing in exotic places
like Juneau, Alaska and Cincinnati, Ohio, the Committee
saw a need to plan activities
that would involve them in
the Alumni Association.
The primary goal of the
Regional Coordinating Committee is to expand alumni
programs and activities beyond the college environs.
Regional chapters can do
this through fundraising,
public relations, recruitment
and, of course, social and
educational activities. Proposed activities include potlucks, fair booths, art shows,
lectures, workshops and outdoor sports.

Award for
The Washington Mutual
Savings Bank Foundation
announced in October a
$25,000 award to Evergreen
to fund a Distinguished
Fellows In-Residence Program for the college's new
graduate program in public
The grant will enable
Evergreen to "invite at least
one expert from state, regional or local government or
from private business to
spend up to one quarter per
year in residence," according
to faculty member Guy
Adams, director of the
master's degree program.
"These distinguished
guests will help us test our
curriculum against the realities of working in public
administration," says Adams.
"They will enrich the program not only through teaching, but through developing
case studies that are regionally based and therefore most
appropriate for the program's
state and local government
The graduate program,
which opened last month,
has 40 full and part-time men
and women students enrolled
in a curriculum which,
Adams says, has been designed in part "to serve the
special educational needs of
state and local government.
Washington Mutual's
$25,000 grant will enable the
MPA program to focus even
more sharply on problems
encountered in the Pacific
Northwest through the professional experiences of the
distinguished fellows, who
will be asked to address such
public policy issues as land
use management, government regulations, personnel
management, affirmative
action, and labor relations
and collective bargaining.

The Alumni Connector: Bonnie Marie
"Who are you trying to get in
touch with?.. .Oh, sure, I
know him. He coordinated
new student orientation back
in 1975. Now he's living in
Denver and running his own
bicycle touring business.
When you see him, tell him
Bonnie sends greetings from
the campus."
That's Bonnie Marie
speaking. Named Alumni
Relations Coordinator in July,
and the first person to officially hold the position,
Bonnie is the ideal "alumni
connector." After almost six
years as Dean Larry Stenberg's assistant in Student
and Enrollment Services (you
may remember her as Bonnie
Hilts) and three years in the
Development Office, Bonnie
personally knows many of

Evergreen's graduates and
former students.
"I really appreciate my
position as liaison between
our alumni and the college,"
says Bonnie. "The alums are
still very much a part of the
Evergreen community; they're
the proof of the value of an
Evergreen education. And,
they certainly are positive
proof. Evergreen alums are
everywhere—doing everything!"
The job is not without its
challenges, she adds. "Evergreen encourages its students to be inquisitive, involved and demanding. So,
our alumni have continued to
be challenging. They want to
know what's going on at
Evergreen today and why.
They want to help the col-

lege, but they want to do it
their way."
"And I wouldn't have it
any other way," she continues. "It keeps things much
more interesting—and certainly more fun."
In her position, Bonnie is
responsible for responding to
college and alumni needs by
helping to organize programs
and events of interest to
alums, such as the Small
Business Seminar and the
Alumni Reunion. She also
works closely with the Alumni Association's Executive
Board, Board of Directors
and standing committees on
legislative relations, admissions assistance, program
planning, financial affairs,
and communications (AlumNews, the alumni directory,

In addition, Bonnie hetps
to coordinate Evergreen's
community relations efforts,
serves as office manager for
the entire community relations group (government relations, development, institutional research, and alumni
affairs), and as co-chair of
the Evergreen College Community Organization (ECCO).
And in her spare (?) time,
Bonnie runs, weight trains
and enjoys home life with
husband Ken Marshall.
What are the words most
often heard from Bonnie?
"Keep in touch!". . ."And, do
we have you r cu rrent

Hadley "Retires"

Herb Hadley, center, recalls some of the more challenging moments of his two terms.

Fondly known as the "just-adamn-minute" trustee, Herbert D. Hadley of Longview
in September stepped down
from Evergreen's Board of
Trustees after twelve years of
Hadley, who could always be counted on to ask
"just one more question" to
make sure all projects and
proposals were carefully
scrutinized, shared his wit,
wisdom and deep, rolling
chuckle with the Evergreen
community at his last
"It's been thrilling," he
said. "To have purchased this
land and then walked these
grounds before there were
any buildings—and to be
able to walk here now—has
been a great experience. I've
been part of making a dream
become a reality."
With a catch in his voice,
Hadley continued, "Evergreen
is the kind of school I would
have loved to attend. I just
wish I could get the word out
to even more young people
that Evergreen can put them
so much further ahead than
other colleges can.

"The trustees, faculty
and staff worked hard together to build this college."
And, with a grin, he added,
"Can you imagine a more
conservative group than the
original trustees.. .a banker,
a vice president for a major
corporation, a contractor and
a Republican national committeewoman. . .becoming
the parents of Evergreen? It's
amazing that we agreed on
Hadley, who retired from
the insurance business in
1969 and then started Hadley
Travel in 1972, plans to
reserve more time for traveling and his family: wife Dee,
four married children and
three grandchildren.
Honored by his fellow
trustees for his leadership
and guidance during the
creation of Evergreen, Hadley
promised his longtime campus friends, "I won't forget
this place. You can bet I'll be
back every chance I get."
Evergreen looks forward
to more questions from the
man whom the press once
labelled "the probing member
of the Evergreen board."

1979-80 Annual Fund: A Record Success
The 1979-80 fund year was
the most successful in Evergreen's history. More than
800 alumni, parents and
friends made possible $47,792
in contributions and corporate matching gifts. In addition, the Evergreen Foundation received $22,786 in
memorial gifts from individuals and special purpose
grants from corporations and
Gifts make
'The Quality Difference'
Private gift support
helped fund 40 full-tuition
scholarships, the President's
Contingency Fund, faculty
research in solar energy and
student research in forest
soil ecology, the ACCESS
Center for re-entry women,
planning for a Summer Jazz
and Audio Institute, athletic

Evergreen's 38-foot wooden
sailing craft is rapidly heading for the waters. Work still
to be done includes installing
the ventilation and electrical
systems, sanding and oiling
the deck and cabin sides,
building and installing toe
rails and bulwarks, outfitting
the cabin, fabricating companion-way ladders, dismantling the protective shed,
and building a transporting
cradle. Once these tasks are
completed, the boat will be
launched, the mast stepped,
and the rigging and a power
winch installed. Following
the commissioning festivities
and the unfurling of the sails,
the research vessel will be
ready to enhance Evergreen's
Marine Studies Program.
Approximately $15,000 in
equipment, supplies and
labor contributions are
needed to reach that goal.

Nat'l Conference
Highlights Ten-Year
Evergreen will celebrate the
tenth anniversary of its opening by hosting a national
conference on alternative
higher education in the
United States. The conference is scheduled for September 8-10, 1981, and will
be co-directed by Dean
Barbara Smith and faculty
member Richard Jones.
The conference will seek
to articulate the legacy of the
various experiments in American higher education initiated in the 1960s and 1970s,
and to assess its relevance
for the 1980s. Participants
will include representatives
of colleges and foundations
that were actively involved
during this distinctive period
of ferment in American experimental higher education.
The keynote speaker will be
Ernest Boyer, President of
the Carnegie Foundation for
the Advancement of Teaching.
Those who have appropriate experience are invited
to submit papers for presentation at the conference. An
abstract of 500 words is due
to Richard Jones by December 15, 1980, with the final
paper due before June 15,
1981. Authors selected to


present papers will receive
honoraria and travel expenses, and some papers will
be organized into a book by
the Schenkman Publishing
Alumni of the Alexander
Meiklejohn Experimental College, which provided a major
model for Evergreen's programs of coordinated study,
plan to hold their fiftieth
reunion on campus immediately preceding the conference, in celebration of the
fiftieth anniversary of the
closing of that college.

Turkey Trot Time
is Coming
Mark your calendars now for
Saturday, November 22 and
plan to join young and old,
serious and fun-runners in
the Ninth Annual Evergreen
Turkey Trot. A 2.7 mile road
race which begins at 10 a.m.
in front of the Evans Library,
the Turkey Trot is an Evergreen tradition.
Of special interest are
the prizes—appropriate not
only to the name of the run,
but to the Thanksgiving
season as well. First place
runners in each division
receive a turkey; second
place winners receive a
chicken; third place winners

A Special
David Broder, Washington
Post columnist and author of
the new book The Changing
of the Guard will be on campus December 1 for the first
annual President's Symposium. His lecture on the
media and public policy will
be held that evening in the
Recital Hall at 8p.m. Interested alumni, parents, and
friends are most welcome
to attend.

and fourth placers are rewarded with a dozen eggs.
All finishers receive a ribbon.
The Turkey Trot is an
opportunity to get some
healthy exercise and have
some fun. Community members, their families, Evergreen alumni, parents and
friends are all invited to join
in. The registration tee is $3
and may be paid on the day
of the race. Proceeds from
the run will be used to support Evergreen's new intercollegiate athletics program.

The "engineer" in Dan Evans
pops up in subtle ways. It
always occurs quietly—like
right in the middle of a cabinet meeting, when someone mentions enrollment, or
at a legislative hearing when
costs per student are under
discussion. If you watch
intently, you'll see Evergreen's president begin to
organize the statistics, first
in his mind, as his glance
drifts away from the speaker
and he begins to calculate
ways to develop the patterns
the figures might form, then
on the nearest scrap of
paper, where soon arises a
graph, carefully sketched to
more clearly spell out trends
and projections.
For Dan Evans, there's
always more than one way to
examine an issue. In his 12
years as governor of the
state, he developed finely
honed skills at analyzing the
pros and cons of each decision his administration had
to make. He brought that
ability—and his years of
training as a professional
engineer—to Evergreen
in 1977.
