The following are suggestions on what an "individual can do as a consumer, as a worker, and as a voter," to solve some of the problems in the environmental crisis. Speakers will be on the Longwood campus for four days beginning Monday, April 20, until Thursday, April 23, to discuss this crisis. Teach-ins will be held on many college campuses on April 22, which has been designated as the First National Environmental Teach-in. These suggestions have been reprinted from "The Environmental Handbook," edited by Garrett De Bell. 1. Mail in any envelopes you get in advertisements for ecologically undesirable products. Each one sent in costs the polluter about seven cents of his profits. 2. When you go to the supermarket for milk, take an empty jug with you. At the check-out stand, pour milk from the disposable carton into your recycled jug, give the empty "disposable" carton to the checker, and explain your action to him. This type of action could be done with other goods packaged in nonrecycleable containers. 3. Conservation research organizations should be established to do research on the environmental effects of various products and practices. Such organizations could develop data on which companies produce the most pollution, so that pressure could be brought on offenders. They can encourage consumers to consider not only the quality of the product but also the total environmental effects of its production, distribution and disposal. How about an "Earth Housekeeping Seal of Approval" for products with no harmful side effects of production, use and disposal? 4. Mechanized recreation, such as using snowmobiles, dune buggies, power boats, trail bikes and jeeps, is the epitome of a trend which is going in exactly the wrong direction. With our current population increase and the even greater increase in leisure time that people desire to spend in recreation, space should not be wasted.

Colleagues for the year iy/o-1971 were tapped Wednesday night, April 8, In a ceremony held on Wheeler Mall. The 71 new members, chosen from the rising sophomores, will guide next year's freshman class through orientation introducing them to the traditions and activities of Longwood.

Glenn Yarbrough, to find out some details of his life, his music, and his ideas. A few pictures were taken, a few friendly but formal questions were asked, and then he was hurried away in order to reach another engagement. Lacking such facts as previously mentioned there seemed to be little hope for a news story. Obviously, the interview was not substantial, but perhaps the man's performance and music provide a much more meaningful and revealing story. Glenn Yarbrough resents the fact that no one has ever attempted to make a distinction between a college concert and a regular concert. He condemns the middleman who jacks up prices for a college concert. Therefore, his purpose is to define these two types of concerts. He hopefully plans to organize a network of entertainers to perform for college students. He Is concerned with the quality of entertainment that students receive. Glenn Yarbrough works for an exact and standard price and prefers to have no guarantees in the contract. He also would

smaller college is unable to raise enough funds. Glenn Yarbrough is responsible for the popularity of several celebrities, such as Bill Cosby and Rod McKuen. His sincere concern for honest and professional entertainment is evident in his college concerts, and it touches the audience. It's time to go, to run, hurry, faster, get the tickets, and grab your seats. In a smothering, simmering, busy auditorium you passively await the entertainment that you have paid for. Socialized, civilized, mechanized - you are a [art of the audience, you continue in your locked-up existence; the stage is another world. But if you peel the plastic from your eyes, from your mind, you can enter those lost realms of sensation. The songs of Glenn Yarbrough weigh man in a balance - his worth, his limitations, his possibilities. They present a duallstic view of life, success and failure, hope and despair, love and lorellness. His deep, powerful, and soothing voice creates a lyrical beauty In his songs, which arouses a tear and a smile of understanding.

The Meaning Of Respect Respect is a word that is constantly brought up in our homes and in our society We often say we have respect for our families or for Mr. Jones, but are we sure that we know the meaning of the word we're using? Let us evaluate this word and see if our meaning and the dictionary meaning are similar or different Respect is defined as "regard for and appreciation of worth; honor and esteem, demeanor or department indicating deference, courteous regard, as to our elders " How often have our parents said, "If you had any respect for me you wouldn't do . . ." We often ask why our parents deserve any respect from us What have they ever done for us? They've brought us into a world of hardships and trouble and we wonder why A world with war and hatred doesn't seem to be a place where people would bring up loved ones. But, the majority of us make it We ore loved, nurtured, and cared for. Our parents shield, protect, and guide us the best way they can As for the hardships and problems, they are |ust part of growing up. Life cannot be all peaches and cream Our parents do their best to give us the things they never had and to prepare us for the hard life ahead of us Yet, many of us continue to ask what our parents have done for us Unfortunately, some of us realize the worth of our parents when it is too late Respect for our elders is very important. Older people are especially impressed when a younger person respects them for their age and for the knowledge they have of life and of the problems in the world today Teachers and professors deserve our respect, too. We must realize their position and their authority. "Conformity to duty or obligation compliance or observance" is another definition of respect. Laws were made to protect people against wrong doings They were not made to be broken, although many of us do so every day We as future citizens must accent the responsibility of upholding the laws of our state and federal governments Even though our government and its laws are not perfect, we must admit that other people are worse off than we are We must cooperate with and respect the laws of our land in order to make our society a better place in which to live. Respect does not end with our parents, our elders, and our government laws We must also respect ourselves We want others to respect us, and in order for this to happen, we must consider others when we do things We must think first how our actions will effect others We must respect others for their beliefs, even though they differ from ours. We should respect ourselves enough to want people to have a good opinion of us. Respect is a word that will never leave our vocabulary. We have evaluated it; now you must decide what this word means to you. Think about this and see if you live up to the true meaning of respect. — M. F. B

Trying Harder Finally someone has done something! Now we can actually see proof of what a Longwood Committee is doing. The dining hall committee and the dining hall should be commended for trying After being confronted face-to-face with a few comments about the food and dining hall procedures, the dining hall was able to take action. It now knew what the students' complaints were The students hod finally made themselves heard to someone who could do something about their gripes. And now the dining hall was able to explain to the students what they were working on; what they could do something about, and what was impossible. In order to appease the students who had complained about receiving cold food at the March birthday dinner, the food was served buffet style at the April birthday dinner Student were to be in Sunday attire, which seemed to be the main complaint, but all went well for the students The dinner was well planned. There were several lines which allowed for a minimum of waiting, and the food was arranged attractively on the buffet tobies. The dining hall has also started having hot breakfasts on Sunday and continental breakfasts served after the regular hot breakfasts on weekdays The dining hall has put forth a large effort to please the students and should be commended for it. Both the dining holl and dining hall committee should serve as a good example to other committees whose accomplishments have not yet been seen by members of the student body. — M. A. C

Letters To The Editor Childish Students

To the Editor: Mr. Pyle (letter of 25 March) is not the only person who notices how astonishingly childish many Longwood students often are. There are a few (at least) students who (for instance) take seriously the question of justification for lunch-time prayers in a state school. Probably Mr. Pyle did not realize that at the meal immediately after the press conference during which the question was raised, an obviously audible scattering of "Longwood Ladies" added to the mealtime prayer their own sardonic blessing for the girl who had had the audacity to ask if there might not be a hole in the dike of Christian conservatism that surrounds this college. This sort of reaction from the Longwood Laughers to a serious, basic, human question may well open up the flood gates to a whole ocean of not-so-conservative and not-so-Christian opinion. Those who plan to be firm in their faith had better look around for high ground. Carol McMullen Lyn Snyder Lee Taylor Betty Ray Carey Jan Wellborn Vivian Vascott

Means Of Expression Dear Editor: A freshman commended me for writing to THE ROTUNDA - a senior warned me that I would get myself into a lot of trouble if I continued to write letters to THE ROTUNDA urging the editor and her staff to publish controversial articles! (Is that what is meant by the generation gap?) No, I did not ask the senior what she meant by "trouble." Although I believe students should use the proper channels as mentioned by Dr. Willett in a recent letter to the editor, students do have the right to express themselves through another proper channel, their school newspaper, and I would urge them to do so. After having talked with several people, I am of the opinion that THE ROTUNDA is not censored but I do believe the newspaper staff is under pressure to print and not print certain information. This pressure also seems to extend to many students who are reluctant to express themselves in writing. Pressure is a part of life. If the students at Longwood expect to take their rightful places in this world, then it is their obligation to start asserting themselves by making their ideas and opinions known, regardless of whatever pressure is involved. The newspaper is a student newspaper and it should express the concerns and interests of the students. If the newspaper cannot or will not represent the student body, it should cease to exist. I would also like to comment on Mr.

Pyle's letter in the March 25 issue of THE ROTUNDA. No, Mr. Pyle, you did not infuriate me, one of your readers. Students have been griping about food for centuries. Why do you think the Longwood students should be any different? I gripe, too, as Mr. Amonett will probably tell you. Personally, I don't believe there is anything unconstitutional about students praying before each meal at a state school, providing it's done on a voluntary rather than a required basis. This is not a "victory for the mental lockstep." I consider it a victory of another kind - that one student on campus was willing to express herself publicly on a problem that was bothering her by using one of the proper channels open to her (the President's Press Conference). If '..he so desires, she can continue to express herself through THE ROTUNDA and through other channels. If only other students would do the same. Sincerely yours, Dr. Robert D. Gibbons

Equal To Others Dear Editor, Recently there has been a lot of controversy and many complaints on the campus. First, I would like to say that Longwood is not as bad a place as all the complaints make it seem to be. If it was such a bad place many of us would not be here. But we should be glad that there are avenues, such as THE ROTUNDA, to express our complaints. The administration, faculty, and students can all see how each feels. With this type of communication we can see what others are thinking, and in turn, act accordingly. Longwood has frequently been ranked as "equal to other institutions," but with this communication, we should be more able to provide perfection and satisfaction for all. Sincerely, Lydia White McCarthy All "Rotunda" articles must be submitted no later than Saturday, 6 p.m. "Letters to the Editor" and articles may be sent to the Editor in 117 Wheeler. All letters must be signed. "The Rotunda" reserves the right to edit all letters prior to publication. Pi Gamma Mu, the social science honorary, is conducting its spring membership drive. If you are a senior or junior with a 2.5 cumulative average, 3.0 average in history and social science, and at least 21 hours in history and/or social science, you are eligible for membership. Contact Mr. Hall, Sharon Bourne in Cox 101, or Janice Davis in Curry 618 by Friday, April 17.

Margaret Nuckols Hopes Her Findings Will Aid Counselors Margaret Nuckols is one ofthesev-v eral girls working on the Honors Program. She is soon to complete her project in the field of high school counseling. Margaret chose this subject for several reasons. First of all, she is going into counseling as a career. This area has been an interest and question to her for several years. It was something that posed a challenge to her and was an area that needed questioning. The question of values of counseling has been on her mind for about three years. She started her research for her project about one and a half years ago. She began by doing a literary search for all background information on counseling. She then incorporated all possible aspects of counseling into a questionnaire. This was administered to new freshmen in college. This questionnaire was to estimate the value of high school counseling. It was meant to collect the opinions of students rather than facts. In the years to come Margaret will incorporate this information into her own counseling on the college level. She also hopes to refine and standardize her findings and analyses more completely so that other guidance counselors can use this information to recognize weaknesses in their own guidance systems. She also plans to send her results to the State Director of Guidance Counseling for possible assistance. In conclusion Margaret highly recommends the Honors Program to students at Longwood. She commented that it was difficult but also rewarding and enjoyable. She feels it was a great contributing factor in her acceptance to graduate school. Margaret will be attending University of Virginia studying counselor education in the fall.

Student Government Holds Open Meeting April 16 In Lankford An open meeting of Legislative Board, Residence Board, and Judicial Board will be held immediately following Dr. Willett's press conference on April 16 in Lankf ord. The boards will follow their regular business meeting procedure with reports from all committees. Residence Board will report on the dining hall, what it is doing now and what it plans to do next year. After all reports are heard, the floor will be opened to all questions, suggestions, and comments. Two proposed changes in the Student Government constitution will be presented at this time. These changes concern student body voting and the position of the Orientation Chairman. In the past, the vice president of Student Government has served as the chairman of orientation. The proposed change would make this position an elected office, instead of the vice president of Legislative Board having this responsibility. The changes are stated as follows: Executive Council of Student Government proposed the following changes in the Student Government Association Constitution: Note: The underlined words are the changes to be considered. Article IV Elections The election to office requires a simple majority of the student body voting. There shall be no voting by proxy. Section 2 The Chairmen, the Vice-Chairmen, the Recording Secretaries of the three boards, and the Chairman of Orientation shall be elected for a term of one year. These elections shall be held each year during the fall semester with official duties to begin at the start of the spring semester. A.

Making the varsity squad are Lynn Coleman, Debbie Ellin, Freda Lunsford, Laurel Baldwin, Lynn Kwaichowski, Lynda Driver and Judy Turner. Bobbie Ellin, Becky West, & J. Rogers, Sharon Farmer, Diane Weymouth, Mary Johnson, and Carol Chory will play the junior varsity matches. Varsity coach, Mrs. Harriss, and J.V. coach Miss Calloway would like to thank all those girls who came out (or the team. "We hope that those girls who did not make the team will continue to play and remember to tryout next year." On April 30 and May 1, 2 and 3 four Longwood girls will attend the Middle Atlantic Collegiate Woman's Tennis Championships at Mary Baldwin

College in Staunton. The Longwood participants will be announced later by Mrs. Harriss. Commenting on the upcoming season Mrs. Harriss said, "We're looking forward to a good year. We'd also like to thank the faculty for their cooperation in assisting tennis players when they miss classes for matches." The first match is scheduled for Tuesday with William and Mary here at 3:30 on Barlow Courts. Come out and support the team. Many of the girls, accompanied by faculty members, traveled to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, over Spring Break to practice tennis. The girls played every day for an hour in the morning and then 2-3 hours every night. This proved very beneficial, not only did their tennis skills improve, they also got a head start on their tans.

Biology Professor Publishes Book (Continued from Page 1) all over the state to find the plants for his book in their natural habitat. The author's original major was music, but he later changed to botany. The Princeton, Kentucky native studied two years at Murray State University in Kentucky, then at the University of Kentucky where he received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Botany. For his master's, Dr. Harvlll did a composite of Kentucky, and for his doctoral degree from the University of Michigan, his thesis was on "Mosses." Later, while teaching at the University of Alabama, Dr. Harvill discovered and named a new moss in the United States. Other activities of Dr. Harvill's include working with azaleas in England, and holding the position of research botanist for Firestone Rubber Company in Libera for two years. In 1962, just before joining the faculty at Longwood, Dr. Harvill did a geological survey in Washington for the military. Dr. Harvill is presently chairman of the floral committee of the Virginia Academy of Science, a position which he has held since 1966, having served on the committee since 1964. Dr. Harvill says, "Virginia is the cradle of systematic botany in the United States." Although many scientists have contributed botanical knowledge about areas of the state, Dr. Harvill's book covers the whole state like no other book has done. The book itself contains descriptions of plant species that flower before June, including such information as family, common and scientific names, descriptions of the plant and the area where it may be found, and many illustrations. The book should prove to be of great value to those interested in and those working with plants in Virginia, and should soon be found in many college classrooms.

By DONNA WADSWORTH Until now the Fluvanna Rock Festival has been regarded by most as a dream or a myth. Now the word is go for the Fluvanna County Popular Rock Festival planned to occur over Memorial Day weekend. The organizers, Trips Unlimited, report all legal permits have been obtained. Traffic control, medical personnel, and a volunteer security group, have been selected. Liability coverage has also been obtained. Tickets will go on sale soon, costing twenty dollars for three days of rock and folk entertainment. The population of Fluvanna County is 7,000 and many residents are alarmed by the large number of revelers that will attend the festivities. Five separate tracts of land have been leased in Fluvanna County. No one knows which wiU become the site of the Festival because of pressures put on Trips Unlimited by residents of the areas. The Fluvanna County Popular Rock Festival agenda runs as follows: Friday: Canned Heat, John Sebastian, Ike and Tina Turner, Steve Miller, Tim Hardin and Pentangle.
