In September 1970, Longwood College will become the third college in the state of Virginia to institute a Laboratory School in order to improve the calibre of its future teachers. The future laboratory school was formally authorized by the last General Assembly. The plans were then submitted to a vote in the state bond referendum of last fall and were consequently passed. The new building, expected to cost around $630,000, is to be built near the top of South Main and Race Streets. The building is going to be equipped with many of the newest ideas in education. The ideas In the planning include a closed circuit television system and a one-way viewer which will enable Longwood students to observe teaching methods without disturbing classroom activities. The school is being designed to hold about 200 students, ranging in grades from kindergarten through the seventh grade. Mr. E. Lee Land, a member of the Department of Education, Psychology, and Philosophy lias been named director of Longwood's future laboratory school. Mr. Land is very enthusiastic and optomistic about the future addition to LoafWOOd, He says, ' It is anticipated that the Laboratory School will become an integral part of the college, and make vital contributions to many areas of its academic program. Mr. Land also stated "that in order for the Laboratory School and the college to benefit from each other, much planning and evaluation on the part of the faculty will bene> sary."

Midterm Estimates To Be Discontinued By Faculty Action

Better Relations? One week ago tonight, a large number of Longwood students boarded the college bus, bound to a mixer at our neighboring, male establishment for higher learning We were invited to enjoy the "freerer" spirits, and were informed that the boys were "really psyched up" over a mid-week gathering with girls Let's face it There are approximately three Longwood girls to every Hampden-Sydney boy Consequently, at a mixer, the law of averages predicts a similar turn-out For those who were disappointed over the small male turn-out, remember — those gentlemen knew there would not be free set-ups Too bad so many girls were "mysteriously" misinformed' Althouqh a college atmosphere permits both academic and social qrowth, it has been suggested that another such mixer with Hampden-Sydney should be more organized — with an estimated, equal number participants from each school. — E C. B.

Mid-semester estimates are now a thing of the past -that is, if you are an upperclassman in good standing. On recommendation of a studentfaculty committee, the faculty has voted a change in the system of midsemester estimates that will be effective this semester. In the past, estimates were given to all students; in the future they will be given to freshmen and students on academic probation. The committee also added that an upperclassman making a D or an F at mid-.-emester will be notified. The committee said that the main reason for changing the present system was to relieve the "exam week;; that has preceded the distribution of mid-semester grades. They believed that this added to the work schedule of both students and faculty. The recommendation to continue giving estimates to freshmen was made, because it was felt that they needed to be tested and informed periodically as to their progress. The change from high school to college study schedules is a major step, and the committee and the faculty agreed that freshmen need to be given semester estimates. The new system, which was presented by a student committee of Jeanette Bickings and Barbara Roukema and headed by Mr. Rubley, will be effective this semester

The Best Plans Of College Students Often Go Astray By Linda Shepherd For those of you who are counting, there are exactly 27 days until Spring Break. That's not including weekends, of course, but who's counting them these days anyway? Thought about where you're going yet? Now if you're a freshman, there's no need to explain. You're going home, of course. Sophomores? After three days at home last Spring Break, remember how you swore that you'd head anywhere but home next year? You know, the Bahamas, Dillwyn anywhere! Juniors. . .ah yes, last year's bout with the hotel manager, the police, and your blind date "from Harvard," renewed your dying love for home sweet home. What could a senior returning from student teaching possibly do for excitement? Move enough essentials back to Longwood for eight more weeks, naturally. Besides, after they've moved in, they'll have the run of the dorms to work off that post student teaching - prefreedom tension. By some chance, you may not have even thought about what to do during Spring Break, or as they say atM.l.T., "intercession." If you think it's too early to start planning for the warm sands, you're in danger of losing your blanket space. It seems that Fort Lauderdale's city manager would like to take this opportunity to remind you that he's already making plans for you, even if you're not. Ft. Lauderdale officials have devised the perfect formula for a pleasant Florida spring vacation. Unfortunately for some hopefuls, these suggestions don't exactly jive with the "Beach Party" movie vision of sleeping on the beach with a bottle in each hand. Actually these rules are not unusually harsh, but they are very specific. Those of you who plan to go to Ft. Lauderdale for some innocent fun, here is a checklist: 1) Make sure you have a housing reservation. There will be no sleeping on the beaches and camping is restricted to trailer parks. 2) All laws concerning those under 21 still apply. Drinking in the open is prohibited and anyone found intoxicated, using narcotics, using false identification, making unnecessary noise, or guilty of disorderly conduct will be arrested and prosecuted. 3) Parents and school officials of all students arrested will be officially notified. Now, about the rest of you, those who are looking for fun, (not necessarily innocent), the city manager re-

minds you that conviction on any charge will establish a permanent police record of your actions. If you are concerned by the limitations of these guidelines, remember, sun bathers will not be prosecuted. You'd better make sure that your suntan oil has a low alcohol content, though, or else avoid using it in the open. Also, in keeping with the city father's desire that everyone, including the policemen, have a pleasant vacation, swimming will be permitted, and all public beaches will be kept open. Could it be that those carrying student identification cards will not be allowed in restaurants or grocery stores? I wouldn't worry. After all, even college students have to eat. If you're too broke for the Bahamas and too leery of Ft. Lauderdale, remember, Virginia Beach is only 150 miles away. The climate's not as nice in early April as points farther South, but it is the world's largest resort and let's face it, it just may be your last one!

H-SCStages'Fringe; Presenting Satires On Society, Politics Wednesday and Thursday nights the Hampden-Sydney Jongleurs succes fully staged "Beyond the Fringe" in Jarman Auditorium. Undoubtedly, the Jongleurs should be commended for undertaking such ademandingproject. This production was not like the normal two or three act plays we usually expect to see. It consisted of short skits, each with its own critical and satirical comments on society, politics or religion. John Adams, Warren Fulton, Randy Hallman, and Jim Rhodes were at their best. Each exhibited a versatility in changing character from one skit to another. Jim, the pianist of the group, intermittently entertained, thus providing a pleasant transition. The informal relationship between the actors and the audience greatly added to the atmosphere enveloping the performance. The set, like the actors, proved quite adaptable to the necessary quick changes. The actors' confidence and enthusiasm plus the directing of Frank Faust combined to provide a most entertaining evening.

Hathaway And Rouillard Exhibition Reflects Feelings Of Time And Place Now, through the end of February in the Library Exhibit Room is an interesting exhibit of paintings done by Walter Hathaway and Paul Rouillard, both members of the art department. Mr. Hathaway's work is mainly done in oils with some in oil crayon or ink. One of the most interesting paintings in Hathaway's exhibit is an oil entitled "March III", done in various shades of green, orange, and blue. The technique used makes the viewer look twice to confirm the fact that he has done the painting in oils, not oil crayon Another picture, this one really done in oil crayon, is "February HI", appropriate for this month. It has the pleasing effect of soft tones of pink, violet, orange, blue, silver, and gold. Mr. Hathaway says of his work: "The drawings and paintings which I have chosen to exhibit reflect my feelings regarding the times andplaces around me. Most of the compositions do not refer specifically; but generally to months or seasons of the year, the countryside between Scottsvilleand Charlottesville, and local phenomena. None of the compositions depict recognizable images; some viewers will see forms that suggest rocks and boulders and some will see textures that remind them of ice, bark, leaves and sand. "I have used colors, textures, lines, and masses which give aesthetic form to October, March, February and other months. I have not tried to be obscure, rather I have tried to be honest and sensitive in my work " Contrasting with Mr. Hathaway's depiction of months and places is Mr. Rouillard's commercial paintings. One example is his "Descent from the Cross" with "New York Times Extra Edition" written on it and the headlines, "Jesus Murdered." Nothing needed is lacking; even the 10? cost of the "Times" is included. Another of his paintings on the same theme is an oil and acrylic painted in silver, yellow, and blue with a woman weeping over a dead man done in pencil and the sign above, "Bath House Closes 7 PM." It is "Pieta 1968." Aside from the religious theme is hisbrightly painted "Air Mail" in reds, yellows, and blues. The postmark is Manchester, N. H., where Mr Rouillard was born. This acrylic painting even includes a po; tage due of 10?. Mr. Rouillard states: "At this time, I am interested in an uncritical reflection of our environment. I consider it as a breath of fresh air to be able to compose a classic theme like, for instance, 'A Pieta' I new humanism with boldcommeri ul colors giant scale and a detach-

ment from moral values or accepted channels And yet it implies a determined optimism, an optimism against odds, an optimism with our fabulous twentieth century.'' Mr. Hathaway, born in Norfolk, received the B. F. A. in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and the M.S. in Art Education from Florida State University, Tallahassee. He has taught at Azalea Junior High School, Norfolk, and Lake City Junior College, Lake City, Florida, before coming to Longwood as Assistant Professor of Art He has had one-man exhibitions at Virginia Commonwealth University, Barksdale Theater, Thomasville Arts Guild, Thomasville, Ga., and Lake City Junior College. Mr. Rouillard has studied at the Manchester Institute of Arts and Sciences, Manchester, N. H., and Boston College. He received his B.A. degree from St. Anselm's College, Manchester, and his M.F.A. from the Catholic University of America, Washington, D. C. While working for his M.F.A. degree, Mr. Rouillard accepted a career conditional appointment at the Smith-

New Dept. Heads: Dr. Scott, Science; Mr. Nunn, Language Two changes in department chairmen were announced last week by Dean Blackwell. Dr. Brumfield, who has served as head of the Department of Natural Sciences for many years, has asked to be relieved of his duties. Dr. Brumfield wishes to devote more time to his research and to teaching. Concerning the change in department heads, Dean Blackwell stated, "In a survey last year, our graduating seniors voted that the science department was the best department on campus. This is a great tribute to Dr. Brumfield's ability. Under his leadership the Natural Sciences has become one of the strongest in the college." Dean Blackwell also announced that Dr. Marvin Scott has been appointed acting chairman of the Department of Natural Sciences. Another change in department chairmen has been made in the language department. Because of sickness, Mrs. Garnjost has asked for a leave of absence for this semester and Mr. Nunn has assumed the administrative duties in her absence.

sonian Institution as an exhibits specialist and later designer. In 1962 he was an illustrator for the Agency for International Development, State Department. Prior to coming to Longwood, he was art instructor at Marygrove College, Detroit, and served as chairman of the art department of Southern Seminary Junior College. Mr. Rouillard has exhibited his work in New England, Michigan, and Washington, D. C.

French Films Here Provide Support For Summer Study A series of French films are being brought here for the enjoyment of all. "Les Francophiles" of Longwood College are sponsoring these to provide scholarships for the summer study program in France which will be led by Mr. Wayne K. Nunn of our Foreign Language department. Most of these French films will have English subtitles. All are being shown at 7:30 p.m. in Jeffers Auditorium at a nominal admission fee. Their excellence has been praised by "Time" and "The New Yorker." To date, only two have been shown: "The Red Balloon," a colorful children's fantasy, and more recently "Le Rouge et le Noir" (The Red and the Black) by the famous Stenhal. This is the story of an opportunist's career and also the story of class society in nineteenth century France which offers the individual little opportunity to rise above his background. The first of the coming attractions, "Compartiment-Tuer" (The SleepingCar Murder), a "whodunit" murder mystery, will appear March 12,13,and 14. On March 19 and 20, two films wiU be shown. "Bulles de Savon" (Soap Bubbles) satirizes Hitler and the "ersatz" economic illusions fostered by the Nazi regime. The second is "Desastres de la Guerre" (Disasters of War), a collection of Goyd's etchings. April 23 and 24 will bring "French Film History." An informal discussion has been planned to accompany L' Annee Derniere a Marienbad (Last Year at Marienbad) on May 12, 13, and 14. Finally, on May 20, 21, and 22, the last of the exciting series will be a "potpourri" of documentary and art films. Patronize these excellent films and support the summer study program abroad.

Longwood Fencers Attend Tournament, Schedule Meets

Gymnastics Team Resumes Practice; Attends Clinic The gymnastics club has resumed it's practice this semester with new interests. The girls are working harder, and hurting more, since practice is now three nights a week starting at 7 p.m. Practices generally consist of 15 students, and anyone interested in practicing, exercising, and learning is welcome to come. At present, the girls are working diligently on routines on the various apparatus in preparation for their first meet. The meet will be held here at Longwood on March 8 with Start ford College of Danville. Thl is the first year Longwood has had a gymnastic team and the coach, Miss Fath, is overwhelmingly pleased with the response and the team's progress. "The girls we have are working hard. Ability is not as important as interest and willingness to try," she states. The girls have also been investigating the judging techniques of gymnastics. They have been attending vari-

ous meets to observe, and some have even participated in judging. Jo Mottley and Debbie Ellenbrand attended an AAU gymnastic meet in Richmond where they both judged various events. Eight others: Maxine Stone, Jo Mottley, Nedra Distel, Susie Marsh, Debbie Morris, Pam Harrison, Debbie Ellenbrand and Nancy Fowlkes, are preparing themselves to judge events at the State Regional Meet in Arlington on March 15. There was a judging clinic the week end of February 15 in Newport News that the girls attended to obtain further techniques and practice in judging gymnastic events. The girls have shown great interest, enthusiasm and progress and Longwood is proud to have these girls rep resent her as a gymnastic club. So please don't forget to put March 8 on your calendar and come see your first gymnastic team in competition. The girls with all their bumps and bruises would greatly appreciate your support.

Rumor Spreads About Increase, Present Tuition Rate Explained Have you heard the rumor that fees for next year are being raised to a fabulous sum? If you have, don't worry because it is just a rumor. A report from the business office shows that in a comparative breakdown, the cost of living for Longwood students is rising $55 for the '69-'70 school session. When comparing the costs for the '68-

The increase is due to the construction of the high-rise dorm that will open next fall, and it has become a fact of life that we must pay more for better living conditions. Any student who wishes to know how this increase will affect the cost of summer school may obtain information from the business office.

Summer Sessions Offered Abroad: Graduates Of '69 A number of British universities have combined since 1948 to arrange annually a special program of summer schools providing primarily for the needs of graduate students from the universities of America, Europe and the British Commonwealth. For 1969 summer schools are offered under a joint program at Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, and at the two capital cities of London and Edinburgh. Shakespeare and Elizabethan drama will be studied in Stratford-upon-Avon: the history, literature, and the arts of seventeenth-century England will be the subject of the Oxford school; at Edinburgh, four Scottish universities will jointly present a study of the history, literature and philosophy of eighteenth - century Britain; and the theme of the London school will be English literature from the end of the first world war to the present. The coursesaredesignedforgraduate students, including teachers in universities and schools and for undergraduate students who will have completed their degrees by June, 1969. For more information, check the Day Students' bulletin board.

Longwood Stomps R-M Down MWC, Sweet Briar During the lapse of time since the last issue of "The Rotunda," the Longwood Varsity Basketball team has been hard at work racking up honors for L.C. In the three past games, (Sweet Briar College in Amherst, Randolph-Macon Women's College in Lynchburg, and Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg), Longwood downed all opponents soundly with a high leading score. Lynn Coleman, a sophomore physical education major, was high scorer in all three games. Longwood met with its third win of the season Saturday, February 8, as the varsity basketball teams I and II downed Sweet Briar College. Playing at 10:00 in the morning didn't seem to bother the "Big Blue and White" as the first team took its victory. The game was slow-moving at times, But Longwood's fast breaks and Sweet Briar's fouls put the points on the score board. At half time, Longwood's first team led 21-16. The final score was 49-36. Lynn Coleman scored 22, Freda Lunsford, 9. The second team rolled to an impressive, but easy, 48-22 victory. Judy Turner led the team with fast breaking and expert lay-ups. Her driving and shooting gave her 11 points.

Mary Tolley scored high with 18 points. On the home court Tuesday night, Longwood's basketball team defeated Randolph Macon's Woman's College 50-31. Lynn Coleman led all scorers with 16 points. Teammates Betty King.Judy Turner, and Freda Lunsford had 11, 9, and 7 points respectively. High scorer for Randolph-Macon was Faith Davidson with 9 points. Due to the defensive play of Linda "Moose" Atkinson and Carolyn Thompson, Randolph-Macon was held to only 13 points the first half. In the second game, Longwood defeated Randolph-Macon 39-31. Barbara Snellings had 10 points and Anne Poust led Randolph-Macon with a total of 12 points. Humiliating Mary Washington College 66-30, the Longwood basketball team won its fifth straight game Saturday. Lynn Coleman was, again, high scorer for the "Blue and Whites." Freda Lunsford had 16 points for Longwood, while Kay Thiel had 15 for the visitors. In the second game, the Longwood team lost. After a hard-fought game by the score 34-32. Barbara Snellings had 14 points for Longwood, and Sue Cross had 15 points for Mary Washington.

Longwood Assistant Professor Quoted In Chemical Journal In the January issue of Journal of Chemical Education "Nuclear Isomers produced by Cobalt-60 Irradiation," an article written by Joseph Law, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, was published. This article, based on Law's research supported jointly by the National Science Foundation and U. S. Atomic Energy Commission, tells how the nuclear excited states are formed by photon scattering. In the article a new gamma-ray scintillation spectrum is shown and the applications of the radioactivity of the metastable isomers are discussed. Another publication entitled "The Silver Nitrate Dosimeter," of the chemistry professor, is now in press and will appear in Health Physics, the official journal of the Health Physics Society. This paper, based on his research done in Oak Ridge National Laboratory last summer, will describe how silver and its compounds may be

used as a novel device, by means of nuclear photoeffect, to measure the high intensity radiation fields, which can not be determined successfully by other chemical methods. During his stay in Oak Ridge last summer Law also participated in the Neutron Activation Analysis course at Oak Ridge Associated Universities. His participation was supported by the Longwood College Faculty Grant. Active in other professional affairs, he is a visiting scientist of the Virginia Academy of Science and spoke on "Radioisotope Applications" and "Neutron Activation Analysis" to the students of Crewe High School In December. He attended the International Meeting of the American Nuclear Society held recently in Washington,D.C. He has been an external abstra for the Chemical Ab,tracts service of the AmericanCliemicalSocietysince
