How can we solve
our social problems?
Poverty, crime, drug abuse, racial and gender inequality. These are
problems that have plagued society from the start. But what do we do
to solve them? Hanover Professor Jim Crone’s new book discusses how
we can take specific and realistic steps. Maintaining a sense of
sociological objectivity throughout, and without moralizing, he
describes what could be done to solve some of the most pervasive
social problems in America today.
In the preface, Crone is quick to point out that the suggestions in this
book are just that, suggestions. “I present what we can do,” he writes,
“but you will need to decide what we should do.” The book discusses
the barriers we face but he presents them as a means to gain a “realistic
and pragmatic outlook,” neither pessimistic and hopeless nor naïve
and innocent. The book concludes with Crone’s predictions for
societal change. To learn more or purchase a copy, go to

                                                        passive racism in the classroom that both angered and intrigued her. Pursuing
                                                        the topic further, Marx went on to write her doctoral dissertation at the

                                                        from the American Education Research Association; one for her methodology
                                                        and another for social context. The dissertation also resulted in the publish-

                                                        The book outlines the steps she took to help teachers identify their own racial
                                                        prejudices as well as ways to avoid it. To try to get to the bottom of the
                                                        classroom racism, Marx set up nine interviews with different teachers to
                                                        record conversations she had with them.
                                                        “I saw that they were saying racist things,” said Marx. She played the conver-

                                                        A lot of self-work and self-reflection should be involved, Marx explained.

How did he go from music to medi-
cine? “I always wanted to become a
diver,” he said. “In diving, when you
go over 1000 feet there’s not a lot to
see. It’s dark and cold. I got interested
in the physiology of what happens to
the body while diving.”
That fascination led Cullison to take a
break from his Navy career as a line
officer to earn a pre-med degree at San
Diego State University. He then
rejoined the Navy, receiving a scholar-
ship to attend medical school
at IU. While there, he became
interested in surgery,
specifically orthopedics.
“I help get people back
to their active lives.
It’s been extremely
rewarding to be
in that field.”                                                        Above: Cullison, right, greets a local Navy recruiter at a

Honoring dedication and service
On September 28, Randy Master ’82 received the Eleanore Watts Moyer Award for his
tenure of volunteer service to the Greek community and Hanover College that
spans more than 10 years. He recently concluded service on the Greek Summit
Taskforce where he served as alumni leader for the Social Host and Alcohol sub-
group, likely the most difficult appointment.

Deanne Walters, assistant director of Greek life, gave her
reasons for the nomination. “As I have worked with
Randy in the last year in and a half, I have been continu-
ally amazed by his objectivity and his dedication to                                   dates to remember
service as well as to the ideas and vision for Beta Theta Pi,
