Officers Required To Read Rights; Jailhouse Comparable To Dorms By JENNY YOUNG Are you aware that when you are arrested, 1. You have the right to remain silent? 2. That anything you say can and will be used against you in court' 3. That you can hire a lawyer of your own choice to be present and advise you before and during your statement if you choose to make one? 4. That if unable to hire a lawyer, you can request and receive appointment of a lawyer without cost to you? 5. That you can refuse to answer any question or stop answering at any point? 6. That no law officer can prompt you in your statement, nor write it out

for you unless you so desire? Well, consider yourself forewarned. These are your legal rights, which should be read to you by a law officer in case of your arrest. You will be able to read the above warnings on a voluntary statement sheet which you will fill out if you decide to make a statement following your arrest. How busy is Farmville's jail? In 1969, 364 criminal arrests were made and 1,614 complaints were answered. January commonly has the lowest crime rate of the year; crime is highest in March and August, and there is considerable theft before Christmas. If you have ever been irritated by store clerks following you around during Christmas, it is because shoftlifting

occurs more and more frequently, and this is an especially busy time of year. DRUNK Perhaps one of the least offensive "crimes" is simply that of being drunk and wandering around town. The "town drunk" is the man who generally occupies the overnight lockup, separate from the rest of the jaU. The purpose of jailing him is, as Chief Overton pointed out, for his own protection, as he might inadvertantly wander out in front of a passing car and be injured. This was the case in the town's sole pedestrian death during the last five years. Demonstrations place quite a strain on the police department, which has found that the wisest policy is to record on film and tape the actions and words of police who are trying to control the crowd. They must be able to "tell where, why, and give positive identification" of those they arrest. The real fun, however, comes when they later attempt to identify in a lineup those that caused trouble. Those in the lineup have often greatly altered their appearance by either shaving or not shaving. FIREBUGS Other criminals encountered in FarmviUe include firebugs, peeping Toms, and suicides. Firebugs are generally people who for some strange reason like to hear fire sirens or watch fires — sometimes those they have set themselves. They usually show up at every fire that is announced over WFLO. Incidentally, are (Continued on Page 4)

Administration Frees Upperclassmen With Suggestion Approval

Legislative Board would like to announce that final approval has been given by the Administration to accept the proposal of Student Government that blanket permission slips be abandoned for all sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

Elementary majors learn the fundamentals of printing with Mr. Springer.

Springer Advances Theory On The Creativity Of Children By LINDA FLOYD Mr. Homer Springer, instructor of art at Longwood College, has an interesting theory of how and why children become creative. The responsibility, Mr. Springer says, falls in large measure onto the shoulders of parents and elementary school teachers. The native of Virginia is a graduate of VCU. He took a B.F.A. degree in Art Education from that school and moved to Maryland to teach in the public schools around Annapolis. While in Maryland, he earned his master's from Towson University. Married and the father of a 14month old son, Mr. Springer teaches art for elementary education majors. This one year course is designed to offer a theory of art education and techniques applicable to elementary pupils for students who, for the most part, have liad no art. The course covers such general categories as painting, design, composition, lettering, printmaking and strives to give prospective teachers some background in art, plus some confidence in themselves. Creativity is a thing that has been neglected in elementary school. Because C(J, creativity quotient, cannot be measured as can 10, intelligence quotient, there has been less emphasis placed on creativity. CO, however, is important for everybody, (quality comes from the creative mind, in many areas such as business, homemaking, etc., creative people are the most successful. Children are born artists. This talent grows until kindergarten. At kindergarten, it levels off a bit as the child is totally involved in new situations and surroundings. Soon, though, this creativity starts up again and grows until about third grade. The fourth grade is awful as far as creativity is concerned because children become aware of adult criticism and criteria. It is especially Important at this stage tliat the child liave a good teacher to encourage him. In junior high school creativity grows again but levels off at about eighth grade.

Coloring books actually stifle creativity since neatness and "staying within the lines" are so strictly emphasized. For the two-year old, newsprint and one large, thick, black crayon are probably the best art supplies. When the child asks for more colors, then it is best just to get him a small box of about six or eight crayons. Toys that can be used more than one way, such as building blocks or cardboard boxes, are best for the child. Toys with batteries that do simply everything, hinder creativity as do Barbie dolls which liave so many premade clothes. Supplies for art can be inexpensive. Also, art does not have to be messy. The good teacher will not let it be that way. Bulletin boards in the classroom encourage creativity; however, there should not be competition. Everybody's work should go on the bulletin board at some time or another. All forms of creativity should be encouraged - art, storytelling, writing, - all are creative. People now have spare time in which tiiey are bored. The future holds the possibility of a four-day work week. It is the person who has been stimulated creatively who wiU, most likely, fare the best in such an environment. Mr. Springer concludes a most interesting interview by a bubbling revelation. "I sure am happy," he says, "I don't have much, but I'm the luckiest man in the world. I love my family and my work. Art is my love and my life."

From The Board

Unnecessary Stagnation

The Committee for "Crises in Our Environment" has met in hopes of promoting needed enthusiasm among the Student Body. On April 22, there will be a nationwide campaign in acknowledgment of our current and future environmental problems within our nation and world. The Evaluations Committee is working to approve constitutions of various organizations. Any organization at Longwood wishing to appropriate funds must have a written and approved constitution. Editorship of the Summer School Handbook has been accepted by Mary Ingram. Sue Goodson and Selena Lee have accepted responsibility of membership on the By-Laws Committee.

Censorship has become a very vague term on the Longwood campus It has been made clear that students involved in the three major publications are free to print any material that is not considered unsuitable But, somehow with these ground rules, the newspaper has fallen into the rut of being a glorified public relations release. The newspaper should be a direct medium of exchange between students This means that the newspaper should not only cover student activities, but also student thoughts, opinions, and ideas The Rotunda is not doing this, and one may ask why. Perhaps it is because the unstated censorship laws arc a bit confining and confusing — L. K. W.

3 A.M. And All Is Not Well Do you fall asleep during your classes because you're tired? And arc you tired because you listened to your neighbors' uninvited stereo blaring Bill Haley's Rock Revival until 3 a.m.? If you haven't been plaqued by stereos lately, have you heard the Music 237 pianists practicing scales from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 a.m.? We realize that everyone must have time to study and relax, but why at such odd times? Supposedly there is still a strict study hour. Isn't that why we have phone duty — to make sure the ringing phone does not disturb those studying? A ringing phone is certainly easier on the ears than girls running up and down the halls screaming. At least we got accustomed to the sound of the phone, but it takes awhile to adjust our ears to the pitch of people's voices. Have you also noticed the increasing number of Longwood students interested in tap dancing? It's odd, but there never seems to be a dance recital for these students Perhaps they really aren't interested in tap, but why else is there all that noise coming through the ceiling? If you've been by-passed by all these noise-makers, surely you must live near an interior decorator who enjoys moving furniture or an arts and crafts student who must nail pieces of wood together in preparation for a class the next day. There is one solution — call-downs, but aside from creating hard feelings, who really is afraid of a call-down anymore? Most annoying noises would not bother us as much if they were made at a more convenient time (e.g. 3 p.m. instead of 3 a.m.) All it takes is a little courtesy and considerateness on the part of everyone Now, if you've decided on anonymously slipping this editorial into your neighbor's mailbox then maybe you had better look into yours first. — M. A. C.

Kappa Deltas are busy preparing for the annual Workshop to be held at longwood this year. Alpha Province representatives from Madison College, William and Mary, American University and University of Maryland will be arriving this week-end to exchange ideas and suggestions during the Officer's Workshop. Kappa Delta's Province President will be remaining on campus to combine the Workshop with her Chapter visit of this week. Alpha Delta Pi had its first installation of new officers on January 8. Those installed were Gwen Phillips, President; Dianne La whom, VicePresident; Annie Anthony, recording secretary; Donna Hale, corresponding itary; Gay Snead, treasurer; Judy i>iies, registrar; Helen Hance, chaplain; Verona Leake, guard; and Judy Haynes, reporter-historian. initiation ceremonies were held on February 14 for Donna Dowling. A D Pi would like to congratulate Dianne l.awhorn, Merlyn Smith, Fran Moran, and Donna Gibson on making Dean's List and Mary Alice Carmody for Ml| named Editor for the "Rotunda."

The following girls are AD Pi's new pledges: Brenda Hollins, Beverly Burke, Patti Lett, Janice Russell, Miriam Miller, Mary Ellen Soslowski, Carol Servies, Sally Foster, Ellen Dunn, Sandi Carper, Donna Gibson, Fran Moran, Lee Sharr, Angela Foley, Linda Floyd, and Elise Caldwell. During semester break, installed president Trisha Spillan, Wanda Spicer, Ann Holt, Nona Davis, Joanne Darby, Ginger King, and Miki Urnes, went to the College of William and Mary on invitation from the Gamma Alpha chapter of Phi Mu for rush week. Living in the sorority house for the week provided a unique chance for all of the sisters from the two chapters to become better acquainted and to share in the challenge of rushing. Also in WiUiumsburg for the week was Mrs. Landon Freear, Phi Mu's National Panhellenic Conference delegate. She gave each of the sisters ideas and provided an opportunity for exchange on problems and suggestions. Climaxing the week, on Saturday afternoon in the mass bid-acceptance run, the Gamma Alpha and Gamma Iota sisters welcomed the new pledges.

Letters To The Editor Read With Interest Dear Miss Carmody: I read with great interest the list of areas of dissatisfaction published in the March 4 issue of the Rotunda. It is difficult for me to comment on the individual items presented although I would certainly be glad to discuss them with any of the persons involved at anytime. No situation is perfect and certainly we are not. At the same time I believe that we have avenues of communication available to all connected with the College that are the equal of those found anywhere. If a person has an area of dissatisfaction or question I would certainly advise them to bring these to the attention of the person in charge of that particular aspect of the College operation or bring it directly to my attention. If a person is sincerely interested in seeking change or improvement in a particular area then the quickest way they can achieve this would be through the utilization of the channels that are provided. If a person is undecided as to whom to contact my office wiU be happy to give them suggestions in this regard. Suggestion boxes are provided in two locations for those who would care to submit questions or recommendations in this manner. Press conferences are scheduled for March 18, April 16, and May 12, for those who would care to use this avenue. In spite of the many problems incurred through budget limitation I am still optimistic enough to believe that most problems can be resolved when everyone works together for their solution. Sincerely, Henry I. Willett, Jr.

Enjoyed Comments To the Editor: Finally "The Rotunda" is doing more than reporting student and faculty activities, future programs, and sports events. I found the article on the police department most informative. I agree with >oui comments on the laundry. Most of all I was glad to see that some of my fellow students have the same gripes u 1. You have touched on a subject area that is just as significant ur college life as who won a ■Hull i ame or who went to the National art Museum. It may not be a bad idea to continue publishing a gripe column. 1 think that you and your staff are ba commended fur tins better than rag! issue of "The Rotunda." I I Hie Itvdantl will continue to use i newspaper as their avenue of Marcia E. Harris

Proposed Changes Ed. note: The following letter is a carbon copy of the original which was sent to Legislative Board. To: Legislative Board From: Carolyn Cummins The following are some changes that I think should be made for they are in the best interest of this institution. I would be glad to discuss them with you at anytime. 1. I resent the invasion of my privacy which results from our pink slips. If it is necessary to have a head count for the dining hall, it can be taken on a piece of paper that says that I will either be here or not. If it is necessary to have a phone number where I can be reached in case of emergency this can be accomplished through a sealed envelope system such as those used at other institutions. 2. I would like to see the sign in and out tables in Wheeler, Cox, and St iibhs removed from public access. Under the current situation anyone can enter these dormitories and look at these cards. There are times when this availability has resulted in a most embarassing situation. 3. You might also consider making available permanent post office boxes in the old bank of Lankford Building or some other vacant space for the campus organizations. Having been an officer in many campus organizations I know how difficult it is to get mail for that organization because it is still being sent to the old officer. 4. Sometimes I feel that this is more like a Girl Scout camp than a college. I see no reason for us to be permitted to talk to girls out our windows, but not boys. I think that room check for any other reasons than checking for property damage and maintaining state health standards is childish. The call down system has also outlived its usefulness. For-the-most part call downs are scoffed at when someone even bothers to issue one. Blanket permission slips are also an insult to my womanhood. If I am not responsible for my actions by the time I am ready for college than it is time I became responsible. 5. I feel that this Board should hold an open meeting at least once a month. I also think that the student body should know how its representatives vote on Issues whether they are passed or not - particularly those concerning rule changes. I would make the same suggestion to Residence Board. 6. Perhaps this is the most important of all my suggestions. I would like to see more emphasis on the academic life at Longwood during our Orientation period. This first week does much to set the mood we

follow for the next four years. It so conditions the student for the "goodtimes" to be had that they lose sight of the real purpose for coming to Longwood College. I think that we could afford to put a little of the academic atmosphere into this week. Thank you very much for consideration of my proposals.

The Reply Dear Editor: In answer to the previous letter written by Carolyn Cummins, I wish to comment on several points. Her suggestions are very constructive and have been well received by Legislative Board. However, many of the proposals which she has suggested have received attention prior to this article. In answer to her third point concerning permanent post office boxes in Lankford Building for campus organizations, this proposal has already been taken care of by the Physical Plant. Mr. Bristol has said that these boxes for campus organizations have been ordered and will be ready for use by next fall. With regard to point four, concerning blanket permission slips, I would refer to the article in this week's ROTUNDA "Blanket Permission Forms to be Abandoned for Upperclassmen." I believe the article is self-explanatory. Concerning point five regarding open Legislative Board meetings Let me remind the entire student body that Legislative Board meets every Monday night at 6:45 in the Student Government Room and our meetings are always open. We welcome anyone who wishes to come, give suggestions, or just listen. With regard to a meeting involving all three Boards, we have scheduled one for April 16 to be held in the Gold Room of Lankford. Further information will be given later. Finally in reference to point six, I totally disagree with the statement that our Orientation program "conditions the student for the 'goodtimes' to be had and they lose sight of the real purpose for coming to Longwood College." I have always considered our orientation program to be a wellbalanced one involving all aspects of college life. However, Academic Affairs Committee will be working on a more ' academic-oriented" program for the fall which will put a little more academic atmosphere into the week. Once again let me say on behalf of Legislative Board that these suggestions have been well-balanced and we always welcome them. However, it would be greatly appreciated if one would check with the proper channels to see if the Information submitted has been previously evaluated. Casey Wilkes

Tabb Wins Trophy For Intramural Cagers; Class Players Picked

Varsity Cagers Meet First Defeat At Westhampton; Stomp W&M

The Tabb basketball team proudly accepted the championship title at the completion of their 13-10 victory over Cox on Thursday, March 5, at 7:30 in French gym. This game brought the Intramural basketball season to a close as the freshmen battled it out with the upperclassmen, while Lynne Coleman and Freda Lunsford officiated. Tabb had eight girls who played in the championship game. They are as follows: Diane Padgett, Mary Ann Bentley, Betsy Minor, Cindy Dixon, Donna Brown, Connie Shield, Lorraine Servies, and Linda Wall. Class games will be played Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. In order to choose the class team, each team turned in a list of their best players. These girls will scrimmage Monday night and the varsity will rate them on their skill. The twelve girts with the best rating will be representim their class. Vying for the places on each team will be 26 freshmen, 17 sophomores, and 19 juniors. Since only six seniors were voted outstanding by their teams, they will not participate in the tryouts.

Longwood fencers are in form for competition, however. Madison outmaneuvered them for I win last Wednesday

The Madison team consisted mainly of senior experienced fencers, so the Longwood team was outmaneuvered. The L.C. team traveled to Fredericksburg for their meet against Mary Washington College. The six fencers again competed in teams, each fencer touting against an MWC fencer of the same rank. The team was downed by a 6-3 score in both matches. Number one fencer for Longwood, Mary Frances Baldwin, commented, "Although we were defeated, it was a great deal of fun and I really enjoyed it." This is the second year for our fencing team, and the coach, Miss Sally Bush, has great hopes of Its progress. Today at 4:00 p.m., in Gym 3, the team will fence against Lynchburg College. March 13-14 they will travel to Randolph-Macon in Lynchburg for the Intercollegiate Fencing Finals. Saturday, March 13, there will be a clinic for fencers of all levels and Sunday a round robin tournament between the participating schools will be held.

By TERRI GADSBY In two exciting games during the past week Longwood varsity basketball team defeated William and Mary by a score of 39-15, and bowed to Westhampton 46-39. Their record for the season is now 8-1 with one game remaining. In the game against William and Mary last Turesday night on our home courts, Sue Manahan and Lynne Coleman paced Longwood to the win as they tallied 15 and 14 points respectively, while Judy Turner contributed 8 points. Longwood also dominated the backboards as Sue Manahan pulled down 13 rebounds and Carolyn Thompson grabbed 10 rebounds. High scorer and rebounder for William and Mary was Lyn Clay who had 5 points and 7 rebounds. By the end of the half it was evident that Longwood was dominating the game by a score of 36-6, and as the second half began the team was spurred on by the enthusiastic spectators to win 59-15. The Longwood J.V. basketball team maintained their undefeated record as they won over William and Mary 5621. It was a very exciting game as Longwood led in scoring and rebounding. High scorer for the game was Dotty Bohannon as she tallied 17 points followed by Fran Anthony with 15 points and Margaret Pulley with 10 points. High scorer for William and Mary was Diane Bromar with 10 points. Longwood dominated the game as Fran Anthony had 13 rebounds and Gail Gossage and Cindy Bradley each had 7. Last Saturday the Longwood girls traveled to Westhampton with their record of 8 wins and no losses. Westhampton jumped off to a close lead by the end of the first quarter as they scored 9 points to Longwood's 6. Although Longwood dominated the backboards in the first half with Sue Manahan grabbing 14 rebounds they could not overcome the scoring of Westhampton and the halftime score was 2618. In the third quarter Longwood began to strengthen and find their shooting range. Lynne Coleman alone contributed 10 points as Joy King and Sue Manahan took the rebounds. However Westhampton managed to maintain their lead as they led 36-28 at the end of the third quarter. As the last quarter started, the game was still undecided as both teams were evenly matched. Yet by the end of the game Westhampton pulled out in front to stay and won 46-39.

Westhampton's high scorers were Marilyn Bray, who led all scorers with 26 points, and Sally Ann Terry with 9 points. Leading scorer for Longwood was Lynne Coleman with 17 points, followed by Margaret Lowry and Sue Manahan with 6 points each. Sue Manahan of Longwood was top rebounder with 14 rebounds, followed by Westhampton's Lindsay Strutters with 13 rebounds. The Longwood JV's took their undefeated record, 7-0 to Westhampton.

Joan of Arc was a woman of action - given to deed rather than word. She brought youthful energy, vitality and devotion to the cause for which she died. Records of her trial indicate unyielding convictions and devotion. She was a young woman, unknown and without influence in a country full of strife who through her courage and convictions helped deliver her people from oppression. What does all this have to do with us? A great deal! The general attitude on this campus is to complain, but to do nothing about our complaints. Most of us are concerned with good grades, popularity and marriage all very worthy ambitions, but not all there is. Joan of Arc has become a mere piece of plaster gathering dust Controversial Joan of Arc sits in the Gold Room. When she had an pensively in Lankford's Gold Room. opinion she voiced it and then had the courage to follow through with action.

That was Joan of Arc -a woman of action, given to deed rather than word. Someone with convictions and willing to stand by them regardless of the consequences. Someone concerned with more than the petty things. It may be too difficult a task for us to revive the ideals and the spirit of Joan of Arc. Perhaps instead we should revise the words of a very familiar song sc the gentle voice would call: "It's Joan of Arc that's slighted by our apathy, Oh Longwood, our own Longwood, should we give thanks to thee?"

Brenda Fariss Receives Honorable Mention In Fellowship Competition Over, 1,000 future college teachers from the United States and Canada have been elected winners in the annual Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Competition. The 1,153 finalists, known as Woodrow Wilson Designates, topped a field of approximately 12,000 outstanding graduating seniors nominated for the honor by more than 800 colleges. Brenda S. Fariss, a Longwood senior, has been selected for the honorable mention list of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship. She is a biology major from Phenix, Virginia. The Foundation's selection committees picked the Designates as "the most intellectually promising" 1970 graduates planning careers as college teachers, Foundation president Hans Rosenhaupt explained. A list of the Designates will be sent to all graduate schools deans in both countries with recommendation that the schools provide winners with graduate fellowships. The names of 1,152 students who received honorable mention also will be circulated among the graduate deans.

Cars on Campus All students are reminded of the following regulations in regard to having cars on campus: a) The first time a student has a car without permission, the car will be taken home immediately, the student will lose her senior privilege, and a letter will be placed in her permanent folder. b) A second violation may result in suspension. c) Seniors registering a car for an underclassman with the intent to give false information is FALSIFICATION OF RECORDS and is violating the Honor Code. Underclassmen must have permission to have a car on campus BEFORE bringing it. Permission is obtained by contacting Mr. Bristol. In cases of emergency, students may contact Mr. Bristol at his home (392-3067) or Dean Holt (392-3738). Cars must be registered within 48 hours of being brought on campus.
