Dr. Henry I. Willett., Jr., Named Longwood President Dr. Henry I. Willelt, Jr., assistant superintendent of Chesapeake public schools, has been named president of Longwood College, effective December 1. The 36-year-old son of the superintendent of Richmond city schools brings to the presidency of one of the nation's oldest teacher-training institutions a 12-year background of public school leadership. Fred 0. Wygal, interim president of Longwood in 1962 ar.d 1963, returned to the college this summer as acting president shortly after Dr. James H. Newman was granted a leave of absence. Mr. Wygal will continue as acting president until the new president assumes office. Dr. Willett's appointment was announced on October 12 by E. Angus Powell, rector of the board of visitors, following board action. In announcing Dr. Willett's appointment as eighth president of Longwood, founded in 1839 as a private female academy that became a state-assisted college for women in 1884, Powell described the new president as "an outstanding educator who is recognized in educational circles for his demonstrated professicmal leadership and qualities of personal growth. "His recent administrative responsibilities at Chesapeake, among which were teacher recruitment and curriculum construction, will prove especially helpful as he directs the administrative affairs of the college, in cooperation with an experienced and highly regarded faculty and staff. "Before appointing Dr. Willett to the presidency, the board met with and considered many outstanding educators in its search for an administrator whose leadership would assure Longwood's continued success and in-

creasing service as a state institution of higher learning. In Dr. Willett's intment, the board has achieved its objective of providing the college's faculty, staff, and students with outstanding leadership," Mr. Powell stated. The board's search committee that recommended Dr. Willett for the presidency consisted of Ralph A. Beeton, of Arlington, chairman; Henry G. Chesley, Jr., of Richmond; and Dr. Duvahl Ridgway-Hull, of Roanoke, a Longwood alumna. Faculty members assisting the board in its search for a president were Dr. Elizabeth B. Jackson, chairman, Dr. Patton Lockwood, Dr. Charles H. Patterson, Jr., and Mrs. Ruth Taliaferro. In commenting upon his new appointment, Dr. Willett said, "I have always held Longwood in high regard, an opinion tliat I have formed in being associated with Longwood graduates who are working in the Chesapeake school system. I have also observed the fine job they are doing in other areas of the state. "It has long been apparent that Longwood is doing an excellent job in preparing teachers who combine the best elements of a liberal arts education with the professional training needed in the teaching field. I am looking forward to working with the staff and faculty of Longwood," he stated. Member of Phi Delta Kappa, top professional education fraternity, Dr. Willett has served as chairman oi Virginia Education Association's international relations committee, as well as holding memberships in National Education Association and American Association of School Administrators. A leader in area civic and recrea-

tional activities, he was honored in 1961 with the Distinguished Service Award by the Portsmouth Junior Chamber of Commerce as "the outstanding young man of the year." He has served on the board of directors of Portsmouth YMCA and is a member of the Rotary, Ruritan, and Portsmouth Executives clubs. He is a former president of Norfolk County and Chesapeake Colt baseball leagues. Coming to Norfolk County in 1955 as a seventh grade teacher at Churchland Elementary, he became principal of the new Hodges Manor Elementary School the following year. In 1958 he became principal of Churchland Junior High School. He was named administrative assistant to the superintendent of the system in 1960. In 1963 he became administrative assistant and clerk of the school board of the new city of Chesapeake. Later in the year he was named assistant superintendent for instruction. Recently he has taught graduate-level extension courses for UM University of Virginia. Holder of the bachelor of arts degree from Washington and Lee University, Willett received the master's and Ph.D. degrees from University oi Virginia, in 1964 he became the first Virginian to win the Finis Engleman Scholarship for graduate study awarded by the American Association of School Administrators. A graduate of Richmond's Thomas Jefferson High School, Willett served two years in the U. S. Army and has traveled in Europe and Africa. He is a Baptist and frequent speaker to church, school, and civic groups. He is married to the former Mary E. Turner, of Richmond. The family, including three preschool age sons, are residents of Portsmouth.

Welcome, Dr. Henry I. Willett, Jr. We welcome Dr Henry I Willett, Jr., recently named president of Longwood College As one of the notion's oldest teacher-training institutions, Longwood needs the guidance of a qualified administrative leader to assure continued success and service as a state institution of higher learning Dr Willett has been described as "an outstanding educator who is recognized in educational circles for his demonstrated professional leadership and qualities of personal growth." He has been a teacher, principal and administrator working with teacher recruitment and curriculum construction As assistant superintendent of Chesapeake public schools his maior responsibility has been working with teachers in instruction His wealth of knowledge in the educational field will Drove very beneficial as he comes to Longwood to train new teachers we feel sure that Dr Willett will contribute much to make Longwood the teacher-training institution in the South. We nefed a president who will take an active interest in the lifeblood of this campus — we, the students. During the past few years Longwood has lived through a period of considerable stress and strain Administrative positions have been short-lived. When Dr Willett assumes the presidency on December 1, we will bid farewell to our acting president, Dr Wygal. As interim president Dr. Wygal has taken a sincere interest in us as students — mingling in the dining hall and in meetings and conferences. Dr. Wygal's absence will be felt and we hope that this same type of relationship will progress even further as we welcome Dr. Willett.

Lambda Iota Tau, an international honor society for literature, has planned its first activity for the semester. The organization will bring Dr. Richard Schechner to Longwood's campus on Tuesday, October 31, at 10:00 a.m. Dr. Schechner will speak in the Student Lounge on the topic, "Intermedia: A New Departure in Performing Art." This lecture should prove of interest to all drama students and anyone interested in the theatre. Dr. Schechner is well-prepared to speak on this topic, being the editor of "The Drama Review" and Professor of Theatre at New York University. Formerly, he was Associate Professor of Theatre at Tulane University and editor of the "Tulane Drama Review." He also finds time to serve on the Board of Directors for the Free Southern Theatre, and to be an advisor to the U. S. Office of Education, Arts and Humanities Program. He is also the author of three works on the theatre: "Theatre and Revolution;" ' Ford, Rockefeller, and Theatre;" and "Approaches to Theory Criticism." Lambda Iota Tau urges all literature students and drama enthusiasts to attend Dr. Scheduler's lecture.

Cutting System Questioned


The cutting system at Longwood leaves a lot to be desired. Actually the policy of the school is to leave the number of unexcused cuts up to each individual teacher. This is fine in respect to the professor that will come right out and allow a certain number of unexcused absences or to the professor that leaves the number of cuts up to the discretion of the students as long as it does not affect their grades But there are some professors who simply state that they will allow absolutely no cuts. If a student has to cut, she can be sure that her grades will be affected. College is supposed to be a time of increasing maturity, a time when the student should be able to make her own judgments about what is best for her. Granted some students are not yet capable of making mature |udgments, still it is not up to the school or the professors to decide some are mature and some are not, therefore they will act according to what is best for the immature. The majority of students realize that they cannot afford to regularly miss classes, therefore they only cut when it is necessary. But even the most mature student is not going to stay at Longwood on a Saturday morning if something important comes up. In a system that allows no cuts, when the class falls on a Saturday students are going to cut no matter what the policy of the professor is. If the professor had a policy of allowing unlimited cuts according to the student's grades or discretion, or to assigning a certain number of cuts each semester, most students would plan their weekends accordingly and would probably not even use all of the allowed cuts. The preceding holds true for late Friday afternoons. Often transporation problems have a lot do do with whether a student cuts a class Most students would prefer not to cut classes but if they have to get somewhere and the only bus leaves for Richmond, Charlottesville, Northern Virginia, etc , at 4:00 in the afternoon and they have r lasses until 5 15, what is the student supposed to do? There are only so many student cars on campus If the student waits until Friday night to catch the 8:05 bus, then she may as well wait until Saturday morning On Saturday morning the bus leaves at 9:50. Thus the student is not able to make the bus if she has any classes after an 8:00 The next bus on Saturday leaves at 2:35 in the afternoon which means the destination of the student will not be reached until late afternoon. Longwood does not like her reputation as a suitcase school, but what is a school full of girls supposed to do. Since the boys refuse to n« to Longwood (they say there is nothing to do here), the girls have to leave campus The boys' schools usually have no limit on cuts which makes it nice for them, but it does not help us any since they will not come here for a weekend Therefore, the girls who have no cuts, take cuts anyway and leave This is throwing the authority of the professoi right out the window and is also detrimental to the student It affects her grades but she develops the attitude that she does ore If she has to go, then there is nothing she can do about it. Therefore, it is unreasonable for any professor to come out and state flatly that he will allow absolutely no cuts. K. M.

Student Center Shows Improvements, But May Present Future Problems By LIBBA BALL Many Longwood girls are truly excited about the new campus recreation center, the Lankford Activities Building. The brick and traditionallycolumned structure is centrally located and is easily accessable from all campus outposts. Now, the question rises, does this building really serve its purpose now, and if so, will it serve in this same capacity in 1972 when Longwood's enrollment is estimated at four-thousand students? At present, the building has a bank and postal service, a ballroom, a 4lane bowling alley, and a snack bar. The campus police have their headquarters within cement walls and the "Rotunda" staff occupies a two room area. As for use in the future, it may well be speculated that the bank and the post office are, and will remain, a vital part of campus life. This area is large enough to accommodate several hundred students per-hr. of business time. However, by 1972, will a four-lane bowling alley accommodate such large numbers? Already the problem of over-crowdedness has sprung up. Several students have complained that they would bowl more often if the lanes weren't already occupied. Another girl commented that if it weren't for the bowling alley, she'd go stir-crazy between mid-week tests. "It gives me the opportunity to forget about my school work for a few hours each week. It's relaxing, too!" One room, however seems to be often times vacant. Maybe this is because not too many girls know proper playing techniques, or maybe this is due to a genuine lack of interest, but the table tennis room seems to be a valuable waste of space. Now, if we could set up a pool table in that area, I know there were be no such complaints, but who do you ask when you want permission to open your own "Joe's Pool Hall" on campus? I bet we'd get more participation, though. Spotlighting the snack bar. . .Most patrons of last year's set-up will agree that no such area was more desperately needed. For hours we'd stand in line to get a grilled cheese sandwich or even a coke. This was really trying for those freshmen who only had that 10-11 p.m. period to shower, roll hair, and then run down for a snack. It just simply couldn't be done; particularly during exam time when every girl in school needed that added energy for those allnighters. Now the service is efficient. The whole set-up seems lots more sanitary and the addition of salads in cafeteria-style is an added attraction. Adequate table space and courteous service are another change from last year's rec. The prices are set at a college minimum, and the food seems to have improved. And another attribute. . . although they may not sell those steaks

like the Stag woom or Tom's Campus Room, the rec is much closer and is really doing good business. But that ballroom; or shall we call it a "ballroom?" To begin with, it just isn't large enough to accommodate our student body. This presents a real problem. The carpets are attractive and the columns add to Longwood's southern-styled architecture. Why then is this called a baUroom if it was constructed too small to accommodate enough people for our greatest event, the Junior Ring Dance? It's a shame this lovely setting can't be used to highlight this year's Longwood social feature. What then, can we use this room for? Faculty meetings? School activities meeting? Conferences? Maybe even a tea or a speaker's hall? An occasional Y.W.C.A. mixer may prove successful, but we can't say, "This room is the ballroom. We have our annual Junior Ring dance here!" Why such poor planning? And finaUy "Ye Ole' Bookstore." Students have complained bitterly this

year over the upswing in publisher'!) prices, but we've been told tliat this can not be helped. Many texts have changed and lots of girls are stuck with thirty or forty dollars worth of books that we'll never be able to resell. But, this year's bookstore is far more spacious and well organized than last year's. More gifts and odds and Longwood "ends" are on sale; and even posters to hang in empty dorm rooms are available! What more can we ask for? This is the most ideal place on campus. The first week of school, every student was rushing madly around; trying to buy as many texts as were necessary. Only then was there that problem of crowds. But then it is important to think of four-thousand not two-thousand girls purchasing supplies from this book store. Then will they have to go elsewhere for their paper and pencils? Will downtown's Grant's or Crute's take even more business from the supply office? My speculation is that these retail stores will (Continued on Page 3)

How they suffer; how they suffer. * » * Shirley Temple Black has stepped out of American motherhood into American politics - or more correctly, Shirley Temple Black is dragging American motherhood into American 'politics. Campaigning for a Senate Seat from California, the housewife and mother is running on a basic platform of sweetness and light. Yet a recent speech delivered to a Woman's Press group was a curious combination of apple pie and hard-core political realities.

Caroline, of course! A writer for the "Dally" credits Caroline with the return of the waistline, because she wore a certain dress to a certain birthday party. That sounds reason-

McCaffrey, Baldwin Score Tennis Wins; Win Color Point*

L.C. Defense Untiring, Westhampton Held Scoreless By LESLIE SEDGWICK Saturday, October 14, was one of the warmest days L.C. has seen in two weeks, but the Longwood Varsity Hockey Team did not appreciate the hot sticky weather. The effect was evident as L.C. hosted Westhampton College on Barlow Field. In the first game the ball constanti •■xchanged hands, travelled from one striking circle to the other, and quickly wore the players of both teams out. The game was strictly a defensive one for everyone involved as neither forward line could muster up enough extra "push" to put the ball over the opponent's goal line. Time and again, both teams had the ball inside the striking circles, but could not move the ball in close enough for a score. Longwood put one in, but it was called back by the official due to an offensive violation in the striking circle. Barbara Matthews. L.C.'s Center Forward, commented after the game, "One time the ball just rolled down the goal line, and we all reached out to push it over, but no one could get to it. But tliat time the Westhampton goalkeeper responded with a kick which cleared the ball." The game was fast, too fast for the sticky weather. Longwood managed to keep Westhampton scoreless, but Westhampton did the same to L.C. as the final score ended 0-0. In the second game, L.C.'s forwards found themselves in their opponent's striking circle much of the time. The scoring was exciting as Sandi Naylor, center halfback put in two quick goals midway through the first half. L.C.'s forwards drew Westhampton's defense in close to the

goal cage, leaving plenty of room for Sandi to drive for the scores. Westhampton put up a good return fight, but the L.C. defense did a tremendous job of keeping them away from the goal cage. In the last minutes of the first half, Chris McDonnell scored to make it 3-0 in Longwood's favor at the half. Two points were added by Jane Tibbs in the second half. The game was played well by both teams but L.C. had the scores to keep them on top, 5-0 as the final whistle blew.



Philosophy Prof Lectures (Continued from Page 1) Sanders Pierce" helped restore the thought of Pierce to its significant place in American philosophy. Professor Weiss has developed his own philosophy in many fine works, including "Man's Freedom," "Modes of Being," "World of Art," "Nine Basic Arts," "History: Written and Lived," and "The God We Seek." Professor Weiss' lecture was brought to Longwood through the courtesy of the Visiting Scholars Program of the University Center in Virginia.

Longwood varsity hockey team displays winning tactics that scored 6-1 victory over Lynchburg.

Lynchburg Bows Twice, Wilkins Sparks Victory By SIBIL PROUSE Sparked by Peggy Wilkins* goal just before half-time, Longwood's Varsity Hockey team defeated Lynchburg College by a score of 6 to 1 last Thursday afternoon. Although Lynchburg scored the first goal of the game about five minutes before the half, Longwood quickly came back with some fine passing which enabled Peggy to even the score at 1 to 1. The ball, which had been battled back and forth between the two teams in the first half, remained on Lynchburg's half of the field during the second part of the game. L.C. maintained possession of the ball, and with the assistance of Barbara Matthews who scored two goals and Becky Bondurant, Judy Nevitt, and Jane Tibbs who each had one, Longwood increased its total score to G before the final whistle blew; Many of -the goals were set up by left wing, Anna Pettis who carried the ball down the alley and then drove across the striking circle to her teammates. The backfield put up a real fight to take and keep the ball away from their Lynchburg opponents. The second game of the afternoon rewarded L.C. with another victory. Scoreless Lynchburg bowed to Longwood's stick women by a score of 12 to 0. Little action was seen by L.C.'s goalie, but Lynchburg's goalkeeper was on constant guard against Longwood attackers. Leading the scoring was center forward Sally Heilman who managed to

get four goals. She was followed by Chris McDonnell and Jane Tibbs, each with three, and Phyllis Carter and Peggy Wilkins contributed one apiece to the 12 goal total. Although she did not score, Fran Sheffield, a Junior transfer from Averett, set up an ideal shot for Chris who put the ball over for a goal. Again as in the first game, the forward line was backed up well by the defense which continually pushed the ball up to our offense. Next Saturday Longwood will be hosted by Madison College at Harrisonburg. We will all be pulling for our L.C. teams in high hopes they will return to our campus with two more victories to add to their record!!! The next home games will be on October 28 when Longwood will play the Richmond Club and the Alumnae for Geist Festival weekend.

Every Monday night at 5:00 a group of campers load into cars and go to Longwood Estate for class. The class is Camp Counseling which is a two hour course taught by Miss Andrews. The course is a requirement for the new freshman phvsical education majors. The class consists of freshmen majors and several upper classmen. The class is held at Longwood Estate. In the first few classes the kids had to clean the outside fireplace, and ttie are.i all around the cabin. They cook dinner over campfires every week. Have you ever eaten half cooked corn or raw hamburger? Well, they do every week and they love it. After it gets cold - really cold, like snow on the ground — they will have a regular classroom schedule. They will learn basic first aid, knots, and games to play and songs to sing around the campfire. What a way to earn two hours! Next spring camps from all over the U.S. will be calling for the ■ xperienced campers from Longwood's camping class.

By YVONNE LESTEK and KAREN SPADE Tension filled the air as Jane McCaffrey and Laurel Baldwin met Lynn Coleman and Barbara Jenkins in the final match of the Class Tennis Doubles Tournament last Tuesday. An excited crowd of spectators watched as the players became more determined to win with each hit. After a long and well played battle, Jane and Laurel came out on top by defeating Lynn and Barbara, 7-5, 6-3. This victory gave the freshman class five points toward class cup.
