Nineteen Faculty Members Join Longwood's Staff Dr. Willett, Dean Blackwell Preside First Term There are 19 newcomers to Longwood College faculty, making a total of 126 faculty members who will serve during the 1968-1969 academic year, it is announced by President Henry I. Willett, Jr. In addition to the 19 new faculty members, there are a number of new staff members, two of whom are Frank H. Williams, assistant business manager and treasurer, and Joanne Holt, assistant dean of students. The top ranking new member of the faculty is Dr. William L. Frank, professor of English and chairman of the English department. Holder of the M. A. and Ph.D. degrees from Northwestern University, he is also the recipient of the B.A. and M.A. in education degrees from University of Southern Mississippi. He has taught at Northwestern University, Delta State College, andSoutheast Missouri State College. While at Southeast Missouri State College he was director of freshman English and was chairman-designate of the department at the time of his appointment to Longwood. A former executive director of the Mississippi Association of Teachers of English, he has published articles on American literature and the teaching of English, and currently is in the process of writing a book. The two other holders of doctoral degrees who have recently joined the faculty are Dr. David A. Breil, associate professor of biology, and Dr. George II. Buteau, Jr., assistant professor of biology. The department of education added two new members to its faculty. T. C. (Culley) Dalton, assistant professor of education with administrative responsibilities as director of special services, is a former elementary school principal. Mrs. Maurice P. Sneller, Jr., is an instructor in education who Uught several years in the public schools of Roanoke County. In addition to Dr. Frank, the English department added four new members to its faculty. They are: Carolyn M. Craft and Susan May, both assistant professors of English; and Carol Jean Drowota and Fred P. Herndon, instructors.

Exchange Program Broadens Range OfCourseOfferings In order to broaden the range of course offerings at both Longwood College and Hampden-Sydney College, a cooperative exchange program has been set up. The statement issued by the Academic Policies Committee on September 16, 1968, announcing the new program, reads as follows: "The variety of courses available to Longwood students has been increased by a cooperative arrangement with Hampden-Sydney College. Under the terms of the arrangement, fulltime students at either institution may enroll for courses at the other institution without added expense. "Students desiring to take advantage of this program must secure approval from the Dean of the College. "Longwood College students may find these academic areas of particular interest: Bible and Religion, Classical languages, and Computer mathematics." According to Dr. Herbert R. Blackwell, Dean of the College, all courses that are offered at Hampden-Sydney, but not at Longwood, will be available to LC students under this program. It may also provide opportunities to resolve irreconcilable conflicts in a student's class schedule. Dean Blackwell expressed hope that many students from both campuses would take advantage of the new policy, especially to increase their selection of courses in major fields and in electives. Where necessary, transportation to Hampden-Sydney, for students making use of this program, will be provided by Longwood College.

Two part-time faculty members were added to the foreign language department. Mrs. Maria H. Koonce, instructor in foreign languages, received her M.A. degree from East Carolina University. A former bilingual secretary for Dupont in Kinston, N.C., she hopes to begin work on her doctoral degree in September. Mrs. Diana A. Saunders, assistant professor of foreign languages, received the M.A. from West Virginia University. Thomas P. Burke, Jr., assistant professor of history, fills the vacancy created by Dr. C. G. Gordon Moss' retirement from the department of history and social sciences. Another member of Longwood's department of history and social sciences is John M. McCrimmon, who has been appointed

instructor in sociology. An assistant professor and an instructor were added to the mathematics department. Mrs. Sandra A. Bollinger, instructor, is a 1964 graduate from Longwood with a B.A. degree in mathematics in English. An assistant professor of mathematics, Mrs. Cada R. Parrish comes to Longwood from Morris Harvey College. Miss Pauline V. Boehm, assistant professor of music, received her bachelor's degree from Iowa State Teachers College and the M.M. degree from Northwestern University. Prior to coming to Longwood she was assistant professor of music education at Muskingum College, in New Concord, Ohio. In addition to Dr. Breil and Dr. (Continued on Page 4)

"Americans from Africa," a one credit-hour course, offered jointly by Longwood and Hampden-Sydney Colleges, will meet for the first time tonight at 7. The class will combine TV and live lectures, and will be taught by Dr. Toppin of VSU, and Mr. Heinemann of Hampden-Sydney. The class is open only to seniors and juniors on an elective basis, although others may audit the TV lectures. Anyone interested in the course should attend the first meeting tonight, and then complete registration in the Registrar's office. The class will meet every Wednesday night from 7:00 until 8:30 or 9:00.

MISS JOANNE HOLT

LC Welcomes Miss Holt, Asst. Dean Of Students By PAT LUCAS Longwood College welcomes the new Assistant Dean of Students, Miss Joanne Holt. Dean Holt taught at Oak Park Elementary school in Oak Park, Illinois and, prior to accepting her new post, was a counselor at Cambridge High School in Cambridge, Ohio. She holds a B.A. degree from the University of Illinois and a M.A. degree from Northwestern University. When asked her first impression of Longwood, Dean Holt replied, "Friendly." She went on to say that perhaps a deeper meaning would be sincere honesty and mutual trust. Thus far, her duties have included arranging freshman rooming and assisting Dean Brown with upper classman rooming. Dean Wilson has revpql°d that Dean Holt will act 3? a liaison between the housekeeping department and the head residents concerning physical aspects of the dormitories. She will also be doing personal advising and later will be working with House Council. Dean Holt says that improvements in housing will be made only in so far as funds are available. This year there are 63 floaters compared with 75 last year. Although it is not preferable to

have triple rooms, the only way to avoid this is to raise the room fee, which few students would favor. Of course the newest developments in housing are the two ten-story highrise dormitories. The first of these is scheduled to be ready for use the fall semester of 1969 with a capacity of 386 students. The new dormitory will have a head resident and an assistant head resident with student counselors on each floor. The second and third floors will be sorority floors and will be occupied either by two of the present sororities if any express a desire to move from Stubbs or by the two new sororities which will be colonizing on our campus in February. The fall 1969 session will see an increase of approximately 200 new students. At this time students in Ruffner and South Ruffner will be housed elsewhere as these rooms will be converted to offices and classrooms. With the second dormitory which will house 396, enrollment will increase by only an additional 200. This will cut down on tripling in many rooms.

Student Officers, Faculty Attend Luncheon

Artist Series Begins Opera Performance Premieres At 8 P.M. Wednesday, September 25, is the date of this term's first Artist Series, the production of Mozart's three-act opera, "The Abduction from the Seraglio." The opera will be performed by the Turnau Opera Players in Jarman at 8:00 p.m. The music will be provided by the Richmond Little Symphony conducted by Edgar Schenkman. Tin-Turnau Opera Players, a national group composed of eight singers, a musical director-accompanist, and two stage technicians, came into being thirteen years ago. Since their conception, they have staged over 750 performances of sixty-five operas, including seven permier temporary works. This 1968-69 season marks their t< nth national tour.

Letter To The Editor

ROTUNDA Waves New Flag Change of policy or a change from a previous procedure is often symbolic of a new vitality, a regeneration of the old life It means reawakening, discovering fresh ideas, beginning anew. Change is not a condemnation of the old, the traditional. It is the recognition that one is in a rut, that one has come to rely too heavily on the past It is an extension, another link in the chain of progress With this in mind and in an effort to keep in step with Longwood's advancement during the past year the ROTUNDA has adopted a new banner Thanks to Susan Davenport's creativity we are able to present it to you in the first issue of the 1968-1969 ROTUNDA. As a result of this change we are able to give the student body five more inches of space on the front page along with an attractive flag. Five inches is not o great deal, but it is a beginning Your student newspaper is ready to serve you The ROTUNDA begins another year — M. K. M.

Jarman Only Half-Filled Jarman auditorium was only half-filled, and yet we complain that there is nothing to do on the Longwood campus. The Colleagues, after many headaches, after much consternation, and after the exertion of a lot of effort, managed to engage the Showmen in concert for the entertainment of the student body Yet, Jarman was only half-filled. Students have demanded more dances, more concerts, more entertainment here on campus Yet, Jarman was only half-filled. Are we to ascertain from the small number in attendance at Saturday's concert that Longwood ladies are no longer interested in bringing outside entertainment to their campus' If this is the case, we con save other planning committees the troubles and expenses of contracting such groups It will save Longwood from future embarrassment — M. K. M.

(Actually we aren't really freshmen. We just want an even chance for a date!)

Whenever color spirit Is at a peak, or whenever Longwood girls Just feel like singing, they gather in the Rotunda. Each class and each color has spirited songs which are sung with great enthusiasm. And learning to sing these songs has for many years been one of the ways by which each one of us has felt that she has become a part of Longwood. Recently there have been several ostentatious displays of rudeness during activities involving the Red and Whites and the Green and Whites. Such behavior is not in keeping with the sincere Blue and White spirit which has previously united us. Exhibiting disrespect for another's spirit, whether red or green, does not add to class or color spirit, nor does it win Gelst Festival skits, or add points toward Color Cup; it only displays our lack of consideration for others. If each class and color maintains a degree of consideration for others, the result will be a sincere spirit deserving of respect. It is this consideration for one another that overshadows both the spirit of Red and White and Green and White, and strengthens our Blue and White Foundation. Sincerely, SM DB

Schedules Cause Confusion; Sacrifice For Free Saturdays By LIBBA BALL "But, I've got to have this course." "I'm sorry, young lady; we just don't have room in here for you." Are many of you disappointed about your schedules this semester? Have you found that sacrificing Saturday classes and adding two hours of daily class time to your schedule is more of a burden than a week-end relief? Considering some alternative arguments: Do you prefer daily 8 o'clocks to the previous set-up of a possible 10 o'clock Saturday class? Are you finding any study time between the first and second sessions of a class on certain days? Have you realized that the courses that meet for nearly two hours twice a week, tend to leave us bored, exhausted, and suffering from unnecessary back pains? What we won't do for a free weekend! Many of us have classes on some days from 8 until 4, with only the 45 minute lunch break. Our spare time during the week has to be spent on concentrated study of day-to-day assignments. Little has been gained by freeing us from campus on Saturdays, since any research work on projects must be completed on the supposedly "free" day. Schedule conflicts, too, present their continual problem. Four-year planned courses of study have been mapped out for those of us who have cfeoMB our majors. This eliminates a student's taking unrelated courses; however, a large percentage of girls are unable to gain admittance into these es. Our classrooms are too small,

or we dont have enough teachers. Whatever the problem is, something should be resolved. A music course, required for elementary majors, recently convened. Since the students were prospective teachers and had plans to student teach the following year, their music requirements had to be completed this year. Unfortunately, there aren't enough pianos. Their Instruction is being hampered by three girls on a piano. Other schedule changes we feel are unfair include the higher course tuition and the two dollars add-drop charge. Why should a student, on a loan or scholarship, be penalized $30.00 if she is taking nineteen hours in order to accelerate? Advisors are supposed to help their advisees determine their courses of study. Fine! But, why shouldn't they be fined part of the $2.00 add-drop charge? After all, the student is following Ids advisor's recommendations. For those whose classes last until the late afternoon on Fridays, what chance do you have of finding a ride home? The Washington-Arlington people, especially, have a disadvantage with the buses. Unless they can eliminate late afternoon classes, they are "doomed" to stay in Farmville until Saturday. Rlcfamonders, also, are at a disadvantage. Unless they have early afternoon classes, they won't arrive in town until after ten. Those seniors who do have cars, are either student teaching, or neglect to invite riders. The majority of us didn't want to attend Saturday classes, and now we're suffering the consequences. Should we reverse our decision or content ourselves with the newest privilege?

"The Showmen" perform at Longwood

"39-21-40 SHAPE" Appears At LCr "The Showmen" Perform In Concert

By FRANCES KIMBLE The Colleagues sponsored a concert Saturday, September 21, in honor of the freshmen and transfer students. The concert featured The Showmen with the Satisfactions as the back-up band. The Showmen got their start 15 years ago in Norfolk while the members were still in Junior high and high school. They called themselves the Humdingers and were managed by a friend, Noah Biggs. In the group's early years they appeared in teen hops and nonbeer clubs. Kitabllshtd November *•. 1M4 In 1961 the group changed their name Editor-in-Chief to The Showmen and recorded "39-21KAREN MAIIr'R 40 Shape" and "It Will Stand."

Knight are the original members from ilk. Donnie Ray Boone from Kinston, North Carolina, recently replaced General Norman Johnson. They range in age from 21 to 26. Friday night The Showmen had appeared in Raleigh. Following the Longwood Concert, the Showmen traveled to Salisbury, North Carolina, for a concert that night. Their next engagement in this area will be October 26 when they will give an early concert it VMI and a late concert at Washington and Lee. They will give a concert al VPI November 9 and at UVA November 17. Bill Kennedy, the manager of The Showmen, said, "an interesting aspect Of the group is that their popularity and demand is based largely on their shows rather than a long repertoire of strong hits." 1 week the group released a new recording, "Action," on Bell l.ables. The first indication showed this would be a big record for the group. The future is looking even stronger for the Showmen now that they have concerts scheduled in the North such as in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and cities in Ohio. 11. R, Parker, back-up band director for the Showmen, said, "we love working for all girls any day and are iid to coming back in the

future." The back-up band, The Satisfactions, are a seven-member group with members from Danville, Richmond, Farmville, and Crewe. The group has been together for two years and has released two records, "Girl With the Mini Skirt On" and "You Don't Know Like I Know." They will make another recording on October 5. The group has backed up singers Joe Simon, Stevie Wonder, and Eddie Floyd. They presently work in six states and have played In major southern universities and colleges. The Virginia Museum's Artmobile, featuring rare Byzantine Treasures, will be at Longwood from September 23-27. The Museum's collection of Byzantine art was assembled by Marvin Ross, the Museum's advisor on Medieval and Byzantine art. The works in this exhibit range in date from the fourth to twelfth century. The jewelry represents the most important group in the exhibit according to the curator of the Virginia Museum. Earrings, bracelets, brooches, and rings, many made of gold and silver and decorated with jewels, are displayed in the Artmobile.

A A Presents Sports Activities During Annual Demonstration Hockey, swimming, fencing, basketball, or lacrosse, what is your game? This question was posed to the new freshman class, Thursday, September 19, at the Athletic Association Demonstration. The demonstration, which began at 4:15 p.m. on Barlow Field, presented exhibitions of various sports in order to create interest in our new and old students for intramural and varsity sports, whether as players or spectators. In Barlow Gymnasium, a series of talks and demonstrations took place. A talk on basketball by Lynn Colemin was followed by a brief game between the Green and Whites and Red and Whites. Volleyball was explained by Beth Rice; badminton by Shorty MarU coni; and fencing by Anna Pettis. Several members of Orchesis presented a dance number from last year's

pageant, following a talk by Doris Richards. Meanwhile a water show was given in the pool by members of the varsity swim team, the H20 Club, and the Corkettes. Each number was explained by Stephanie DuRoss. Two solo Interpretations, a dual synchronized number, and a water relay were presented. In Tabb Circle, moreofLongwood's sports were represented: bowling, by Janet Harpold; table tennis, by Debbie Remsburg; golf, by Jo Newberry; bicycles, by Chris McDonnell; and tennis, by Betty Jane Rogers. When all three groups had seen the various demonstrations, they returned to Barlow Field to watch several Longwood hockey players in action and a game of lacrosse, another of Longwood's varsity sports.

Seniors Receive Blazers; Honored At Banquet Eleven seniors received their Athletic Association blazers September 19 at the annual AA banquet. Those girls getting white blazers were Anna Pettis, Becky Bondurant, Linda Atkinson, Cathy Hass, Jane Tibbs, and Ginny Sire. Receiving blue blazers were Jane Erdman, Peggy Shultz, Stephanie duRoss, and Linda Martin. To receive a white blazer students must collect at least 45 points by their senior year and to earn a blue blazer students must earn at least 35 points. Points may be earned by participating

in varsity sports, intramural class and color teams, and by serving on the board of officers and committees. "This year for the first time transfer students may earn points through their senior year," said Jane Tibbs, president of the Athletic Association. "These blazers will be presented at the picnic later in the spring." Also new to the club this year is Miss Callaway. She will advise the group and coordinate the intramural program.

Last Thursday's AA Demonstration was well-organized and gave a wellrounded view of Longwood's expanding athletic activities. Too bad so few freshmen decided to take advantage of the interesting afternoon. Judy Turner had quite a hard time last week, along with a few others, maintaining her balance in the old gym. Hearty congratulations to all those people who were awarded blazers at the AA banquet. Alma, was it really that warm at the Physical Education majors gettogether? Barbara Jenkins is in fine shape for powder puff football should a team be formed. Her favorite tackle dummy is "nightie watch," and Dillard can vouch for that.

If you know enough about tennis to understand what has just been said, then last Monday should have been the beginning of a good experience for you. Monday was the first day of matches In the Class Tennis Doubles Competition. Any two members of the same class are eligible to play. The tournament is played by single elimination rules, in which partners remain In competition until they lose a match. The winners receive points toward the class cup. Last year, the finals were composed of two teams of freshmen. The winners played Dr. Heintz and Dr. O'Neil as a finale to the tournament and impressively, the "more experienced" players won. This year, the winners will again make their debut against Dr. Heintz and Dr. O'Neil. Maybe the "younger set" can pull through this time!

Although tennis doubles are held in the fall, the singles competition is held in the spring. The tournament is run in the same manner as to entries and elimination, with the winner also receiving points toward class cup.
