Lester E. Andrews Elected Pres. Of Longwood Foundation Lester E. Andrews, Farmville business executive, has beenelectedpresident of the Longwood College Foundation. The educational foundation consists of a group of private citizens who organized a nonprofit corporation in 1959 for the purpose of securing private and corporate funds to supplement the financial support the college receives from state tax sources. Andrews succeeds his business partner, Maurice R. Large of the local construction firm of Andrews Large and Whidden, Inc., of which Andrews is president. Thomas C. Boushall, prominent Richmond banker and civic leader, helped organize the foundation, served as the board's first vice-president, later president, and was a member until 1965. When asked to comment upon the foundation's importance to Longwood, President Henry I. Willett, Jr., said, "At a time when the foundation is playing a more active role than ever in its financial assistance to Longwood, I wish first of all to express the college's feeling of deep gratitude to Mr. Boushall, Mr. Large and other past and present members of the foundation's board of directors who provide an organizational channel through which private and corporate gifts enable the college to undertake important projects for

Current Art Show Features Prints By Robert Kroutel The current art show in the exhibition gallery of the Lancaster library on the Longwood College campus presents the works of an established artist who has received recognition in numerous exhibitions throughout the United States. Featuring prints and drawings by Ronald H. Kroutel, the current exhibit will end on December 21, at 5 p.m. The public is cordially invited to visit the exhibition. According to Paul G. Rouillard, instructor in the art department at Longwood, purchases may be made from the exhibition Kroutel is not only a versatile artist who works successfully in varied media, but he has a wide background of teaching art at some of the leading colleges and universities in the country. Currently he is assistant professor of drawing and design at Ohio University. Prior to his present position he was a graphics instructor for the Society of Arts and Crafts in Detroit where he taught woodcut, lithography, intaglio, and organized a lithography shop. His experience also includes serving as art instructor at Marygrove College where he taught oil and water color painting, graphics, design, and drawing. He served as lecturer on art appreciation and held numerous teaching fellowships at the University of Michigan. A 33-year-old native of Illinois, Kroutel received the bachelor of arts education degree as a graduate of the cooperative art program sponsored by The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the University of Chicago. He holds the master of fine arts degree from the University of Michigan. Other formal training includes attendance at Wayne State University and graduate study at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. An articulate spokesman in his field, a portion of Kroutel's description of his current exhibit at Longwood gives some idea as to his areas of interest and objectives as an artist in the following comment "This group of drawings and prints includes six series of related images. They represent the systematic exploration of a specific set of symbols. The primary aim is to find an increasingly working process which would suggest a less arbitrary selection of form and a gi eater sen authenticity in the image."

which no state funds are available. ' Since coming to Longwood, I have become increasingly aware of the contribution to campus and classroom excellence of educational foundations, not only here at Longwood but throughout the state and nation. Funds secured and contributed by foundations for educational purposes so often make the difference between average and superior learning opportunities for students in both state and private institutions," President Willett commented. For many years a leader in the local community, Andrews is a former chairman of Prince Edward County School Board and a past president of the Rotary Club and Jaycees. Currently he is chairman of advisory board of Virginia National Bank, member of the board of directors of Southside Community Hospital, and a deacon of Farmville Baptist Church.

Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Phi Sororities To Colonize At Longwood In February In February, 1969, Longwood College will welcome for colonization two well known national social sororities — Alpha Delta Pi and Alpha Phi. Representatives of these groups came to the campus in September for conferences with the Panhellenic Council, the sorority advisors and members of the administration. The result of the conferences was that the Panhellenic Council invited Alpha Delta Pi and Alpha Phi to colonize and each accepted. The addition of these groups increases to eleven the number of social sororities at Longwood, all of which are members of the National Panhellenic Conference ALPHA DELTA PI is the oldest secret society in the world for college women. It was founded on May 15, 1851 at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia and in the 117 years since then has grown to an organization of 70,000 college women. Wesleyan College, birthplace of this oldest National Panhellenic Conference sorority, was the first college in the world to grant academic degrees to women students. Two undergraduate members from other campuses will transfer to Longwood for the spring semester for the express purpose of colonizing the new chapter They will be assisted by representatives from the National and by Mrs. Arthur Neira of Richmond, Alpha Delta Pi State Chairman ami President of the Richmond Panhellenic Association; and by Mrs Jackson T. Ward of Mechanicsville, a former Province Presid. i : lty Alpha Delta Pi was one of the first national sororities to establish n national headquarters building. This

A restoration of the original chapter room, known as the Adelphean Room, is located in Macon, Georgia in the "Canon Ball House" owned by Sidney Lanier Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy. This latter building also houses the restored chapter room of Phi Mu sorority. Philanthropy projects center around work with handicapped children and purchase of medical equipment needed for children's clinics, hospitals, Easter Seal Society units and the like. Actual service is encouraged as well as fund raising through special Penny-A-Day Banks. The sorority also maintains loan funds for its members, scholarship grants in both graduate and undergraduate work, and through a Foundation makes annual scholarships available tu nonmembers tl well as Alpha Delta Pi's. A number of Alpha Delta Pi chapters have been cited for their work with the Armed Services and Vietnam, and various projects to help underprivileged children of all races.

Alpha Phi called the first intersorority conference now known as the National Panhellenic Conference, in 1902. It was the first women's fraternity in America tobuild and occupy a chapter house, and it was the first to have a visiting delegate, the forerunner of today's district governor and field secretary. Besides the promotion of scholarship, character and the best tradit.ons and ideals of college life, Alpha I'hi devotes much of its attention to Cardiac Aid, a national philanthropy that won it the Heart and Torch award of the American Heart Association in 1966 for contributions nearing one million dollars. This award was given only twice before to any organization.

Dieters Resolve To Walk, Not Roll From Dinner Table

Another Year Ends With mixed feelings I write my last editorial for the ROTUNDA It has been a short but hectic year. There have been good times, there have been bad times I can truthfully say that I have enioyed the good and learned from the bad. In speaking for the entire ROTUNDA staff, I would like to thank the student body for co-operating with us in editing the ROTUNDA For myself, I would like to gratefully thank the ROTUNDA staff for its hard work and enthusiasm week after week. I would like to particularly thank Candy Maher, Lynda Davis, Libba Ball, Susie Marsh, Carol Brotherton, and Carol Johnson. Without these girls there would hove been no ROTUNDA My special appreciation goes to Mr Warren Eyster, the ROTUNDA'S adviser. I am sad thot my year as editor is completed. Yet, I am happy that I am able to turn the ROTUNDA over to the capable 1969 staff. I have much confidence in the ability of these girls to uphold the standards of the POTUNDA I would like to remind them that there will be good times, but there will also be bad times. Take them as the come and do not become discouraged The good far outnumbers the bad I would like to extend my best wishes for a successful year to the 1969 ROTUNDA staff. — M. K. M.

Farmville Resident Protests (EDITORS NOTE: We received this letter, unsigned, from a local businessman; we thought it would be of some interest to the students.) AN OPEN LETTER TO STUDENTS, ADMINISTRATION AND THE PRESIDENT OF LONGWOOD COLLEGE In the midst of student riots and protests, we the residents and business people cf Farmville should like to protest-Not riot, Not march, Not demonstate, just protest. No citizen of Farmville, white or colored did any unlawful things when many homes were taken by Longwood College-many ancestral homes that tore at the heart-strings as well as the daily routine. Many Formvillians find the attached "Fund Drive" rather ironical in face of the recent bond-issue and its questionable politicking by many school administrotors-who perhaps could better serve in the capacities for which they were appointed. But more especially we find it ironical in view of the Longwood students' attitudes toward Farmville,-its residents, its business-people even the town itself separately and as a wholeMany Longwood students admittedly spend many spare hours making derogatory remarks about All Farmville, who they do not bother to try to know. Many Longwood students in the down-town areas are rude, crass, gross, pseudo-snobbish (how does one really get snobbish to someone she does not know-). Some students are dressed - bordering on the indecent - If this drive is to suceed — someone should ask Longwood students to "mend their manners." their dress, their behavior in public, including private driveways and certain bachelor apartments on week-ends. This is from a business man who has four generations of Longwood graduates in his family tree - and who for the first time is beginning to be ashamed to say soAnd who would really like to attach his name or make a speech to this effect in the public square.

Editors Defend LC In reference to the letter to the editor from a citizen of Farmville we, the editors, would like to take a stand in defense of Longwood 1 The funds from this drive will be used for such things as merit scholarships and faculty benefits that the bond money will not provide for, but which Longwood urgently needs' 2 Students attitudes toward Farmville may be bad, but often we feel that the Farmville attitude towards Longwood is hostile Perhaps both students and towns people could benefit by taking a closer look at their personal attitudes; 3 The author of the letter asks why the students make no effort to know the people of Farmville. A more apt question would be why the people of Farmville make no effort to know us However, it should be noted that the Longwood Student! willingly give their time to tutor at the public schools of Farmville, donate blood for the Southside hospital, conduct a Thanksgiving food drive for needy families in Farmville, donate money for needed dental work, and invite the townspeople to various Longwood functions What does the town offer us? 4 Regarding the general accusations as to dress and behavior, we believe that the girls fitting these descriptions are the except iher than the rule There are bound to be such exceptions in a large group of girls; 5 Sin, t flu author is involved in the business community he should realize that Longwood spends approximately three and one half million dollars o year downtown Howevei Sii I ■ the author of this letter did not sign his name, we feel that his attitude toward Longwood is the exception rather than the rule — M A M, M KM

By KAREN MAHER Have you noticed that extra tire you are carrying around lately? Did you take a pre-Christmas inventory and decide you were a little overweight? Or, do you have that annual Christmas fervor and spirit to lose five pounds before buying that new dress? Dieters, let us now unite in an all out effort to flatten that tire! Well, there is not doubt in my mind, after talking to Mr. Martin, that we could afford to reduce our daily intake of food - gradually, of course! (that is the safest way). After making an estimation of the consumption of food for the week of November 16-23, the figures (ours definitely prove this) say that we eat: 2,476 pounds of meat; 1,764 pounds of poultry; 230 pounds of fish; 210 gallons of soup; 2,800 pounds of potatoes; 469 pounds of french fries; 3,730 pounds of vegetables; plus, we eat 13,378 portions of dessert and 2,348 servings of ice cream; not to mention 440 pounds of bananas, 450 pounds of apples, 8 crates of grape fruit, 6 crates of oranges, and 100 pounds of grapes. We also drink 2,640 quarts of milk and 24 gallons of skim milk. Hopefully, for those of us who need an incentive of diet, these estimates will help. Tonight, let us dieters resolve to walk away from the table instead of roll.

HONORS COUNCIL HONORS COUNCIL If you have a 4.0 average, don't read this! Now that mid-term estimates have been distributed, the Honors Council wishes to remind all students of the tutoring program that has been made available for them. Several students have already taken advantage of the plan and are receiving qualified help with the subject in which they are weak. The various department heads have been quite helpful in submitting lists of students qualified to tutor others In particular subject areas. Once requests for tutors have been received, these suggested students will be approached concerning their availability to serve as tutors. If you feel that you need help with any of your college courses, you may obtain an application in the office of the Director of Admissions. These forms must be completed and returned to Emilia Bruce, Cox 217, as soon as possible. The committee will then arrange for each applicant to meet with a tutor. The Honors Council cannot overemphasize the fact that college students should be able to recognize their need for extra help and seek assistance before it is too late.

Lynchburg Downs First Team; L.C. Second Team Wins The Longwood basketball team faced its second game of the season Friday night against the Lynchburg College team. Even though Lynchburg was closed last week because of flu, their basketball team made a very healthy showing. The Lynchburg players were proficient in their ball handling and organization, and although the Longwood team was playing well, they came out second best. The fast moving game continued at a breakneck pace with cheers coming from the enthusiastic crowd in the balcony, but Longwood just couldn't seem to get their close shots through the rim. Fran Anthony, Lynn Coleman and Freda Lunsford connected some shots, but the Lynchburg team was too far ahead. The game ended with Lynchburg 40 and Longwood 20. The second game started out better, with the second team redeeming itself after their Bridgewater game. They played exceptionally well and made shots that were destined for the basket, while the Lynchburg team just couldn't quite make it. Their rebounds were well taken from the opponents and the crowd cheered on with the Longwood Sweetheart cheerleaders leading them. Some of the passes were a little off, but Longwood made up for it with fast moving lay-ups The first half ended with Longwuod leading 16-13 The third quarter was slow, with neither team doing much passing and few scores. In the fourth quarter, the pace quickened and baskets were made by both teams. Finally in the last five seconds Lynchburg tied it up with a score of 22 all.

Betty King dominated the overtime with a beautiful underhand layup and four successive foul shots. Lynchburg came through with two good foul shots and the game ended with Longwood victorious 28-24.

Longwood Through The Lens The human eye can only enjoy each second as it occurs, but a camera can transform that brief second into something lasting. The images it produces can change in our eyes each time we look at them. We see subtleties we had not noticed before, such as the trees framing a group of girls in friendly conversation, and the detailed beauty of the first snow of the year. The camera gives us a tangible, permanent view of the life around us.
