ia, those who went on to higher education and those who did not." Addressing himself to the students, he added: "If you want to become totally involved, as your generation seems to, if you want to help shape a better life with your own hands and your own minds, you can find no finer field than education in your own state." "If you want to go where the meaningful action is, if you want to really take hold of tomorrow, then find a place in education."

"I think it is time for us to go back to the fundamentals in Virginia education. . .We can go back early and often to our belief that the school or the college is only the means; that people, truly educated people, are the end. We can, and we must, remember that education begins and ends with the classroom teacher." Complimenting Longwood on its achievements in the field of education, Gov. Godwin said: "But I say to you that no college in Virginia has had a more profound effect upon the people of this state than Longwood College.

Sophomore Class Sponsors Auction Tuesday, Dec. 10


Precaution Needed

An auction, sponsored by the Sophomore Class, will be held Tuesday, December 10 at 6:45 p.m. in the Senior Dining Hall. Loretta Childress will serve as auctioneer. Many items and services donated by members of the class will be auctioned off. Privileges, such as wearing slacks all day December 14, will be for sale. Members of the class will take phone duty, wrap Christmas packages, and wash and iron clothes.These are just a few of the services that will be available. Debbie Remsburg, chairman of the auction, noted that mystery items, donated by members of the Longwood faculty, will be of interest to many students.

It has finally touched us. We had thought perhaps that we were untouchable, that things "like that" only happen to others. But the November 20 Richmond NEWS LEADER reported that "two young women were raped while waiting for their dates on Rugby Road last weekend . . ." (At the University of Virginia). The article did not state where the girls were from. It does not matter How many girls from Longwood were at the University of Virginia that weekend? Per chance, it could have been anyone of them Again, the we need not limit the incident to the University of Virginia It could have happened anywhere It could happen on the Hampden-Sydney campus, in the town of Farmville, or on the Longwood campus. We have become careless. We have dropped our guard. Girls walk back from the bus station late at night unmindful of college rules warning them not to do this. Girls wander the campus by themselves after dark without qiving the matter any thought. Girls allow their dates to go off and leave them sitting by themselves in a car, or waiting in the parking lots of fraternity houses Must you be reminded to take precautions regarding your personal safety3 A great percentage of such coses of assault could be prevented if the coeds would be more particular about avoiding isolated areas when they are alone. — M. K. M

Pass-Fail Comes Up . . . Again The pass-fail idea has been in the works for a few years. Each time it gets turned down by the faculty committee, the students work a little harder. Next Thursday the student curriculum committee will meet with the faculty curriculum in their first session of the year. The main issue for discussion will be adoption of a restricted pass-fail system on a trial basis Let's look at the student proposal. 1. Only |uniors and seniors would be allowed to elect to take a course under pass-fail. 2 No more than one course in any single semester, a maximum of four during the junior and senior years, might be taken pass-fail. 3 A pass-fail course must be taken outside a student's ma|Or field, and outside a student's distribution requirements. 4 A C— or above would be P (pass); below a C— would be F (fail). 5 There would be no H (honors.) 6 Professors would not know which or how many students in a class are taking the course pass-fail 7 Grades would go to the recorder as usual, but only a P or an F would go on the student's record. Wo think the students have a convincing case to present to the faculty next week, and we urge passaqe of the proposal. The student committee has supporting evidence that a similar system succeeds at comparable schools They have thoroughly examined every conceivable faculty objection in preparation for the meeting. They are only asking for o trial period of one year-what would be the harm in trying?

Superb Talent Oj LC, H-SC Anna must subtlely advise this proud man as he tries to be a good king. The King who must be strong and intelligent is puzzled at the foreign ideals of this different woman. The parts were very well cast. Each character successfully adapted the manners and accent to portray his part, never seeming to break character. The dancing was a very commendable aspect of the play.

Thanksgiving Traditions Overlooked? Thursday our nation celebrates Thanksgiving, a day commemorating the early settlers thanks to God. Thanksgiving Day brings to mind the close of harvest time, sheaves of wheat, pilgrims neatly donned with shiny shoe buckles and pressed collars and hats — and father sporting his shotgun and recently-felled goose. Imagine small children delighted at the feast as they gaze over the long table - corn, turkey, vegetables. Thanksgiving, to these people, was truly a time to thank their Creator. But the times have changed. Instead of families enjoying a meal of thanks together, Mom and Dad have gone to a football game and the children have taken the family car. They may be home in time to grab a hamburger before their dates, but a peanut-butter

and jelly sandwich will do just as well. What about attending a church service? Many college students consider Thanksgiving only a time to "get away from it all." One student remarked, 'I'm just going to rest and get ready for the tests coming up before Christmas." Is this attitude one of complacence? Why are we content to by-pass the religious, unified aspect of Thanksgiving tradition? One reason stems from the fact that we have let religion play a small part in our daily lives. We are not concerned with religious observances, and, as a result, Thanksgiving is regarded as just a three or four day vacation from regular class work. Even downtown merchants adver-

tise Halloween costumes one week and display Christmas items the entire month of November and December, absolutely overlooking Thanksgiving. True, buyers don't purchase gifts or candy at Thanksgiving, but then perhaps stores over-commercialize these holidays. Only one downtown FarmviUe store displayed a Thanksgiving scene. By-passers can be reminded, at least, that the season is at hand. What we need at Thanksgiving is more family fellowship. Take time to attend a church service and thank God for all the things you nave — maybe you'll appreciate them more when you compare your life to those less fortunate. Try to see Thanksgiving through the eyes of the earlier settlers, as a day to Thank God.

O.D.C. Sinks Swim Team 62-13; Team Takes First At Tri-Meet ByJOANLAWTER The Longwood Swim Team was defeated, 62-13, by Old Dominion on November 16. Kathy Hipshind was the only Longwood swimmer to win a second place. Agreeing that the team was under a handicap, Miss Bush said, "With four of our top swimmers sick, we were forced to enter girls in events they had never swam before. The girls worked hard and gained a lot of experience." The swimming team now has a record of 4-2, and the next meet is home December 5 with Roanoke College. In a tri-meet last Wednesday, the Longwood Varsity Swimming Team captured first place with 59 points. Westhamptun was second with 42 points and Mary Washington was third with 24 points. The Longwood team took the first

event, the 200 yard medley relay. Swimming in the relay were Carol Umbdenstock, Lois Hrubek, Ellen Cahill and Joanne May. In the 50 yard freestyle Carol Sanders was first with a good time of 28.6 Jinx Washington took a fourth place in this event. Team captain Carol Umbdenstock captured first place and Patti Coogan second in the 50 yard backstroke and Lois Hrubek was third in the 100 yard medley. In the diving Kathy Hipshind was second and Judy Donohue was fourth, and in the 100 yard freestyle Carol Sanders took second place. With a good time, 34.5, Ellen Cahill got first place in the 50 yard butterfly. Lois Hrubek came in second and Janet Hirshman fourth in the 50 yard breaststroke and in the final event, the 200 yard free relay, Patti Coogan, Carol Umbdenstock, Carol Sanders, and Joanne May won for Longwood College. Anna Pettis. Leslie Sedgwick (top), and Phyllis Carter (bottom) were the three I.oncwood students named to the Southeast III hockey team. Now. they go to Delaware to compete.

Sedgwick, Carter, Pettis Named To S.E. Team By SUSIE MARSH Two weekends ago, the first Varsity Hockey Team attended the Tidewater tournament in Richmond at Westhampton College. There they were judged by their playing ability on the field and on their records from the entire season. From this data the permanent Tidewater teams for the year were picked from Virginia and a few surrounding states. Members of the Tidewater I from Longwood are Barbara Snellings, Anna Pettis, Jane Tibbs, Phyllis Carter, and Leslie Sedgwick. Longwood players

on Tidewater II are Cathy Hass, Betty King, Sandi Naylor, and Becky Bondurant. This past weekend these girls traveled to Williamsburg to attend the Southeast Tournament at William and Mary. The entire Tidewater team played Washington (5-0), Blue Ridge (1-0), Baltimore II, and Washington College, and Blue Ridge Club I (1-0). Three girls were chosen for the Southeast III. They are Anna Pettis, alternate, Phyllis Carter, and Leslie Sedgwick. They were judged for the games they played over the weekend.

ANN ARBOR, MICH -(I.P.) - University of Michigan Regents have extended for an additional year the liberalized dormitory curfew and visiting regulations which they adopted temporarily last January. Regents continued the lifting of curfew regulations for all women over 21 who live in residence halls and for those under 21 who have their parents' permission. The Regents said such policies are to be established within these guidelines: "The proper balance of academic, social, and political aspects of University life; the maintenance of good taste; the meticulous safeguarding of the rights of minorities; the utilization of the experience and advice of University Housing staff." Richard L. Cutler, outgoing vice president for student affairs, recommended that the Regents make the temporary policy permanent. "The Board of Governors of Residence Halls and the director of University housing feel that the visitation policy has been extremely successful," Cutler told the Regents. "While a few abuses have occurred, there is no indication that these are more frequent than under a more restrictive policy. He noted that the student-faculty Board of Governors had certain reservations about eliminating curfew altogether, but felt that "the option left open to parents and their daughters is sufficiently flexible so that individual arrangements can be made to reflect the pattern which has developed in the home." Most of the 4,885 students and 235 staff members who completed questionnaires endorsed the idea of each residence unit's autonomy in fixing visiting policies. More than half of them took an active part in determining the policies.

YWCA Plans Special Program Emphasis Includes Folk Group The YWCA is planning a special program for the student body on December 4, 1968 as part of its spiritual emphasis. Instead of a speaker, the "Y" is sponsoring a "Folk Group" composed of seven students representing four college campuses in Virginia. They sing contemporary folk music with some religious folk tunes. The pt of the group is to express through the contemporary music their own faith. The program will be at 7:30 p.m. in the ABC room of Lankford. Afterwards, refreshments will be served and those who wish to stay can talk with members of the Folk Group. All students, faculty, and administra-

tion are invited to attend. Another "Y" project has been the Thanksgiving Food Drive which has been in progress since November 18. Under the co-chairmanship of Lois Monger and JoAnne Darby, this year's drive has had three categories of competition. The nine sororities are competiting among themselves with the winner receiving a banner with its colors. The upperclassmen dorms are each competing for a blue and white banner, and the freshmen dorms are vying for a red and white banner. The "Y" is collecting not only food, but toys and clothing as well.

Committee Studies Mid-Term Grading; Students Participate A committee chaired by Mr. Earl Rubley has been formed to look into the whole structure of mid-term evaluation. This committee was a result of a proposal made at the last faculty meeting to study the situation. Students had complained that when mid-semester grades were due, they had two and three tests scheduled on the same day. The Legislative Board recommended the names of two students to serve on the committee; the girls are Jeanette Bickings and Barbara Roukema.

This project was first set up by Dr. Wygal, former President of Longwood College. In this project, he agreed to match, up to $100, the amount of money that the Freshman Class made in the penny throw. The money made would go toward a scholarship for a deserving Freshman. The Freshman Class made $32.07 on the penny throw. The scholarship will be presented in the spring to a member of the class of 1978.
