The Feathers Are Going To Fly: Your Alternative to the Fargo Forum

All writers have selected a "Phantom Name" due to the controversial content and editorial mission of the publication. The decision was made to help protect their professional standings in the community. This underground newspaper is dedicated to seeking truth and justice and revitalizing the role of the free press as a guardian of liberty. We remain faithful to the traditional and central role of a free press in a free society - as a light exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power. This is why we are not accepting advertising for this venture. This is why we have assembled a arsenal of writers from all walks of life and income status. Hawk and Dove is also designed to stimulate a free-and-open debate about political ideas facing the Red River Valley. Through educating and advocacy, we will continue to promote democracy. One constant motivation is the old-fashioned notion that the principal role of the free press in a free society is to serve as a watchdog on government - to expose corruption, fraud, waste and abuse wherever and whenever it is found.

Your Alternative to the Mighty Fargo Forum ...





NDSU is under appreciated, at least locally.


  • I wonder sometimes how many of us realize that an institution of the
    size and level of NDSU has much to offer the community other than
    athletics and a plot up North with cool lights.

    This last week was the celebration of Veterans Day, officially
    November 11. This holiday was originally to celebrate
    the end of World War I, and was originally called Armistice Day, as
    the World War I Armistice was the 11th hour of the 11th day of the
    11th month.

    As part of this recognition, the History Department, the Mathematics
    Department, the NDSU HIstory Club and Phi
    Alpha Theta(the National History Honor Society) hosted a lecture by
    Professor Emeritus Ferdinand("Fred") Haring of
    the NDSU Mathematics Department.

    Fred was born in Indonesia, the Dutch East Indies then, and was about 10 years old when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. He spent the whole war on the Dutch East Indies Island
    of Java, growing up under the rule of the Japanese as part of their "greater east Asian co=prosperity sphere." aggression: they wanted the oil.

    Fred gave a gorgeous, very professorial lecture describing World War
    II from his perspective. He was a little lightson Japanese
    atrocities, but nonetheless gave an interesting perspective not many
    of have, or know about. Particularly interesting was his description
    of the battle of the Java Sea, which took place early in the war, and
    apparently was the only seal battle to involve a multi-national allied naval force,
    which was almost entirely sunk.

    After describing the departure of the Japanese, Fred went on to
    describe the foundation of the Republic of Indonesia and the loss of
    Dutch influence in what is now Indonesia. This was a harder time for
    the Dutch colonials than the Japanese occupation. Eventually Fred wound up in Holland,
    where he had never been before, and was educated at the University of
    Utrecht and the Illinois Institute of Technology before coming to NDSU
    in 1962.

    Celebrating another holiday, on November 20 the Vienna Boys Choir will
    be performing at Festival Hall at NDSU. This is an internationally
    acclaimed choral group that has performed in almost every major venue
    imaginable. I understand tickets are going fast, so we might want
    to check this out as soon as possible. I hope that we are not
    embarassed by low attendance as has happened in the past with world
    class performances.
