endowment provides financial

stability for the University outside of

the money received in tuition.

Elsbeck said the money will

not go into a specific year's

budget. Instead, it will be used

to purchase interest paying

securities and other investments,

creating more income over a

longer period of time.

This money can then be

included in the budget for the

future. It will not have a direct

affect on tuition.

"It will be a perpetuating

investment for students today and

where to draw the line."

Sharp said one Rush policy

the IFC will review this year is the

expenditure limit. Currently, Greek

groups cannot exceed $5,000. The

IFC will vote on a proposal to lower

the limit to $3,000.

"The limit serves to keep

everyone on a relatively even playing

field when recruiting," Sharp said.

"We have never had any problems

with this designated amount but

many people felt that the proposed

$3,000 is sufficient."

Moyer said there were no

problems with any sororities

because "they always seem to do

everything by the book."

Senior Andy Yates, also

studying biochemistry, said, "I think

it's great the university has the

Both Elsbeck and Carter said it

is unusual to receive gifts in land.

Typically, donors give cash or

King Solomon had a harem

Sunderlin's parents teach

lesson on dealing with tragedy

Wendy Sunderlin's mother and stepfather, Sharon and Bill Throop, appeared in a news report on rape

on college campuses 1 1 on television staion WMCH's Monday news broadcast at p.m. Word of the report

spread quickly on campus; it was the first time some students mentioned Sunderlin's name since winter

break. It has been 12 weeks since Sunderlin took her life.

I was not at Ohio Wesleyan last semester; I was studying in Florence, Italy, far from the large

freshmen class and the crowded dining halls of OWU. I was not here when Casey Polatsek and Wendy

Sunderlin died. Official news of the deaths from the University arrived late, carelessly stuffed in an

envelope with issues of The Transcript. It was in an instructional memo from Blake Michaels, director


of programs, not in a letter from University president Thomas B. Courtice. It arrived much

later than the rumors of the tragedies did from friends at OWU.

I did not know Casey Polatsek or Wendy Sunderlin. The other OWU student in Florence and I spoke

about their deaths, and I imagined all the changes I would sense upon returning to OWU.

I have not sensed these changes. The oftly mention of Polatsek and Sunderlin I have heard came when

I asked my friends about the tragedies. This silence can be a good thing. Perhaps members of the OWU

community are understanding and coping with these losses. Maybe students fondly mention their former

classmates to one another rather than gossiping about them in small groups.

This silence could also be a terrible thing. Last week some members of Delta Delta Delta (Tri-Del- t)

sat outside Smith Dining Hall collecting money for a memorial bench for Polatsek and Sunderlin. As they

tirelessly asked each passerby for spare change, students quickly shuffled in and out of the dining hall

without acknowledging the small contribution box. It is difficult to believe that some of the OWU

students with their new Jeep Cherokees could not afford to spare a dollar in memory of two classmates.

The Throops chose not to remain silent. Mrs. Throop spoke to The Transcript after her daughter's

death. Monday night, when many students may have felt they could successfully ignore what happened

last semester, they went on television to speak of Sunderlin's alleged rape. They have not forgotten the

November day when their lives changed; they have not forgotten the daughter they were so proud of,

whose photos adorned their home in the interview. They also have not forgotten that their daughter told

them she was raped on this campus by a student she knew.

There is so much to learn from the deaths of Polatsek and Sunderlin, and it is sad that despite their

deaths, many students have not given a second thought to fire safety or rape. We must speak and think

of Polatsek and Sunderlin regularly. Talk to each other about a memory of Wendy from class or where

you were during the fire at Phi Delta Theta. Sunderlin's parents are brave people who understand that

death can provide a wake-u- p call. They should be applauded for talking to the public about their daughter,

her alleged rape, and her suicide.

Through talking and thinking of Polatsek and Sunderlin, their memories Vi II live on, and we can use

this opportunity to learn from them. Next year's freshman class should know about Wendy and Casey.

They should know what they meant to their friends and this campus, and they should know more about

fire safety and rape because of them.

that says about them as a people

and about the United States as a

you subtract the wealth owned

was the beneficiary rather than

the victim of a system of extensive

racial discrimination - from the

rest of that country, it would be

the 23rd richest. In other words,

black Americans have been able

Friday night, Gray Chapel rang

harmonies as The Scholars of

London performed for Ohio

Wesleyan students.

Composed of four voices, The

Scholars of London is a chamber

music group which had its debut in

1970. Since then, the group has

performed at such concert halls as

the Lincoln Center in New York,

London's Royal Festival Hall and

the Sydney Opera House. The group

also participates in masterclasses and

residency activities and works

Friday's program showcased

many different aspects ofthe groups'

talent. From funeral dirges to

flirtatious melodies, The Scholars of

London performed each piece with a

new emotion apparent in their faces

and voices.

The opening selections were

a diverse array of composers and

subjects. David van Asch, the

bass of the group, explained the

set to the audience.

"This group is a mini tour of

Europe," he said.

The second group of musical

selections was introduced by the

ensembles' soprano, Kym Amps.

Barely concealing a smile, she

described the difference between

the first and second set.

Presently, the deadline to

drop any class is the sixth week

of the semester. From the seventh

week through the final

examination days, a student may

ask to withdraw from a class by

submitting a petition to the ASC.

If permission is granted to

withdraw, which is only under

serious circumstances, the

student's transcript gives

withdrawn; a "WP," meaning the

student was passing the course

One of the pieces in the set,

"De nuit, le bien," was composed

by Betrand, a Frenchman who was

famous for his bawdy

compositions. Amps explained

Betrand's history to the audience

and noted the irony of the

occupation he eventually chose

for himself.

"Betrand ended up a monk,

probably wishing that he'd never

said. "But I'm jolly glad that he did."

The next set of music was

candidate may not be included in this issue.



In the midst of our confusion

of dealing with the preparation for

the world beyond that of Ohio

Wesleyan, one final and important

decision must be made by all seniors

before graduation.

This final task is to choose

the right person to accurately

represent and verbalize our

opinions and concerns for our

class as a member of the Board of


Those that know me know I

make no promises I cannot keep.

I voice my opinions and stand up

for the issues I believe in, such as

increasing enrollment and

retention rates, the ability to keep

the curriculum the same so as to

experience we are so nationally

known for, keeping the student



I believe students deserve honest

representation. The Graduating Class

Trustee should be a voice and an

advocate for the interests of the Ohio

Wesleyan community by bridging the

gap between students and alumni. The

student trustee has an opportunity to

provide a unique viewpoint. In

addition, theGraduatingClass Trustee

should possess interpersonal skills

which will promote interaction with

the other trustees. Among the issues I

intend to advocate to the Board of

Trustees are combating the rising costs

of education, student life and student

recruitment. The cost to attend Ohio

Wesleyan has risen to staggering levels

and has become prohibitive to families



I began my journey at Ohio

Wesleyan unaware of the significant

devotion my feelings were to embark

upon. Of course, love for the

University brought me here;

however, that appreciation has

escalated. The passion I feel for this

institution has inspired me to give

back to the school what it has given

to me. Through my involvement on

campus I have been able to share my

commitm'enf and dedication in

everything I do.

I continue to take the initiative

and responsibility to help out

wheneverandwhereverpossible. My

motivation is the basis for leadership

roles. I am a member of Student

Organization for Alumni Relations

(S.O.A.R.) where I was the president

for two years and organized Fallfest,

faculty ratio low, making financial

aid packets more accessible to those

in need, and creating a bridge to

reconnect the communication lines

between faculty, students, and

trustees. These are a few of the

issues that need to be addressed

and dealt with now and in the

coming years.

I promise that ifchosen Senior

Class Trustee, I will strive towards

effectively completing these goals

to the best of my ability.

I could now begin to list the

achievements and honors I have

received for exonorary leadership

on this campus. However, I feel

this is not as important as the fact

that I truly believe I can best

represent the senior class of 1997

on the Board of Trustees.

We as a class have so much to

offer to the Board of Trustees and

the future Ohio Wesleyan Alumni.

It is our responsibility to choose a

a proposal which would allow Ohio

Wesleyan's tuition to decrease while

also decreasing, moderately, the

amount of financial aid which is

available to incoming students. The

quality of student life and the residential

amenities available at Ohio Wesleyan

should be improved and maintained. I

believe enhanced living conditions can

only better the mood of the student

population as well as assist in the

recruitment of incoming students.

Finally, I believe as alumni we have an

obligation to assist the University in

ideas I hope to bring to the attention of

campus involvement, I have acquired

Monnett Weekend, and Alumni

Weekend. I have had the privilege of

being the vice president, campus

events, and little sibs committee

chairperson of President's Club.

Through those experiences I worked

with many people in the interest of

the OWU student body. Earning my

B.A. degree in elementary education

has allowed me to understand the

perspective. Delta Gamma, Big Pal

Columbus Initiative, S.A.C.C.

W.S.F. all add to my successful

journey here. Being a part of the

Ohio Wesleyan community has

enriched my life because I have

learned, cared, listened, and

Meg Radebaugh



Now is the time for a Senior

Class Trustee who not only talks the

talk but one who walks the walk.

You deserve more than a mild- -

mannered and self-servi-ng candidate

full of grand and possibly empty

promises. Having invested your

precious time and money into Ohio

Wesleyan, you have earned the fight

to be heard, honored, and upheld

long after you have moved away

from this place.

I commit to serving you. You

can trust that commitment, for it is

likely that I have already served you

as a Resident Assistant ofthree years,

as- - the President of Habitat for

Humanity, as a WCSA geographic

representative, or during my years

of involvement in various

community service projects,

programmingboards, and leadership

roles in student-oriente- d

organizations. Serving you in this



My experiences over the past

four years at Ohio Wesleyan have

lead to a concern that reaches far

beyond my own personal

experience- - a concern for the

future. I would like the

opportunity to address this

concern for the future as your

graduating class trustee. This

position is not only unique to our

institution, but an honor and a

privilege for all those who have

assumed it. I welcome the chance

to hold this esteemed position at

a university that values the

opinions that a young graduate

has to offer.

My leadership experiences at

OWU have allowed me to gain

respect and admiration for the

University's student body and

faculty, as well as the University

itself. These experiences include

serving as president ofthe Newman

Community, president of Theta

Alpha Phi (Theatre Honorary), and

president of SOAR (Student

Organization for Alumni

Relations). I have served as a

member of Wesleyan Student

Foundation, President's Club, and

the Residential Life staff in

addition to pursuing a double major

in psychology and theatre.

Although I will be graduating in a

few short months, I would like to

continue contributing to this

University in the future. As

president of SOAR, I have had the

opportunity to interact with many

alumni, as well as serving as an

active member of the alumni board

this past year. I have experienced

first hand the pride of alumni and I

capacity has made me the complete

and confident candidate who is

capable of making changes for our

class and for those students still to

come. Serving the Ohio Wesleyan

community has brought me

increasingly closer to understanding

the wide array of needs and desires

that the student body possesses. I

will represent the concerns of all

without discretion. I hope to be

known on the Board of Trustees as

an energetic and objective student


I commit to demystifying the

"majestic" trustee image and purpose

by advocating openness and better

communication at all stages of the

decision-makin- g process. I am

certain that you, like myself, are

tired of being kept in the dark about

issues that directly affect you, the

classes yet to follow, and the future

of our alma mater. I hope to shed

some light on the abyss separating

students and trustees when elected

by you on February 12, 1997.



this feeling is well

In addition to having

knowledge of alumni activities, I

have also gained an appreciation

for OWU's student body. As a

Resident Assistant, I have both

experienced and witnessed many

of the struggles of OWU students

Moreover, I have interacted with

nrany prospective students who

quickly snse the spirit of Ohio

Wesleyan, illustrated by the

dedication of the students, staff,

administration, and alumni. These

qualities should not be taken for

granted because they are the direct

result of hard work and

dedication. I am proud to say

that I have both the dedication

and experience necessary to act

as the senior class trustee. In


I am willing to put forth

the hard work that is necessary

to maintain the tradition and

pride of Ohio Wesleyan. I would

be proud to represent the class of

1997 and I hopeyou will give me

that opportunity.

Woody Allen does it

"There are two types of people

in this world those who like Neil

Diamond, and those who don't. My

wife loved him." This is a quote

taken from a scene in "What About

Bob?," where Bob (Bill Murray)

tries to explain to his therapist why

he got divorced.

I would argue that people tend

to react to Woody Allen in much

the same way. Either you love him,

or you hate him. I' love Woody

Allen (no, not in that way).

Chances are, many ofyou have

never had an opportunity to test my

hypothesis, for Woody Allen films

have never been the darlings of

multiplex owners across the

country. Woody's films are usually

of the low-budget

variety, and they

don't have much action or violence

to offer. For my money, they are

some of the most entertaining and

enjoyable movies in film today.

Allen's films typically involve

a select group of upper crust New

Yorkers who see their

spouses. While this might not

sound like anything of interest

to some of you, the writing and

acting in his films are almost

always superb. I know of no

other director that so

consistently makes me laugh and

think at the same time.

In recent years, Allen has

decided to have more fun as a

filmmaker. It has always been his

dream to make a musical, yet he

was concerned the material was too
