News Briefs Textile Limitd Set TOKYO - Negotiators for Japan and the United States agreed Friday night to limits to be set on the flow of Japanese textiles into the American market. The agreement ends a three year dispute between the two governments which had been threatening their relations. The agreement will stimulate President Nixon's economic plan and will fulfill a 1968 campaign promise to the American textile industry. However, Japanese politics have been aggravated and Premier Esaku Sato is under fire because the United States has made no concessions. Nobel Prizes STOCKHOLM - In announcing the first two Nobel Prizes for this year, the faculty of Karolinska In stitute and the Swedish Roya Academy of Sciences have honored two Americans. The first was Dr. Earl W. Sutherland, Jr., a professor at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. He received his award, valued at $88,000 cash, in physiology and medicine for his basic discoveries in hormones. His work is expected to lead to the control of certain diseases, including cancer. Simon Kuznets, an economist and statistician, will receive the prize in economic science, valued at $90,000. Kuznets'award was for no particular work, but for his overall contributions to the field of economics, ■ Water On Moon HOUSTON - Equipment left on the moon by Apollo astronauts has detected the presence of subsurface pools of water on the moon. The water has been found in vapor form which is coming from an undetermined point in the moon. Geochemists have already stated that the rocks brought back are not the type that harden in the absence of water. In the light of this recent discovery, they feel the moon is not completely dead, but is still experiencing volcanic action. Foreign Aid Cut WASHINGTON - The Senate Foreign Relations Committee acted Thursday in showing its disapproval of U. S. involvement in Southeast Asia by cutting $850 million from the administration's request for $3.3 billion for foreign aid. The committee still has to consider a third part of President Nixon's request, which asked $510 million for foreign military sales. A large cut is also expected in this area. The committee also considered an amendment by Senators John Sherman Cooper and Frank Church, which would deny the President the power to use U. S. troops to stabilize the military and government in Vietnam. The committee has delayed voting on this until the House has a chance to vote on a related Senate - passed plan of Sen. Mike Mansfield.

Eligible Organizations Cut In Half By BECKY NICHOLSON Each year those organizations on campus that provide a service to the college and its members meet the qualifications set by the Student Activities Committee and are permitted to receive appropriations from the committee. The Student Activities Committee has allotted $58,000 for the year 1971-72 to 18 organizations, which is half the number of organizations which received funds last year. Those groups which have not been included in the appropriations this year include the honorary societies, the organist guild, Orchesis,Lychnos,MENC.

the foreign language clubs, the Home Economics Club, Philakalia and the Political Science Club. The Publications Board is a new addition to the list. The organizations must request an increase in funds each year because of the increasing number of people they must serve. The appropriation of $58,000 for 1971-72 exceeds the $39,830 aUotted for 1970-71 by $18,170. All of the decisions concerning monetary matters were at one time made by the administration alone. However, the administration came to feel that, in order to

maintain some continuitv on the committee, it would be necessary to have student representatives who would have an equal opportunity to voice an opinion on how the money was to be spent. Student representation on the committee has now reached enough strength that, if they feel the need to, they can in fact out-vote the faculty and administration representatives. The committee consists of 20 members, four from the administration and faculty and 16 from the student body. Those members of the administration and faculty who serve on the Student Activities Committee include the

Assistant Dean of Students, Dean Nuckols, the Director of Student Activities, Tim Brown, the Assistant Business Manager, Frank Williams, who is also the college treasurer and Dr. Frances Brown of the English Department, who serves as the faculty representative. The students on the committee include the President and Secretary of the Student Government, the treasurers of each of the four classes, a rising sophomore and a rising junior, with an additional two representatives from each class, who serve on the committee for the four years they are here.

Student Apathy To Elections Prevalent By TINA MOODY Apathy prevails onLongwood's Campus in regard to the upcoming election of Lieutenant Governor. Of 35 students recently questioned, 20 had not registered to vote. Only 3 of the 15 who were registered knew for whom they would vote, while four of them did not plan to vote at all. Few had taken advantage of the fact that the registration books were kept open an extra week in Farmville for Longwood students. Nearly all those included in the polling expressed a general lack of knowledge about the candidates. Several girls said they would have to do some research before they could vote. Somewhat in answer to their needs, short sketches of the three opponents in the race for Lieutenant Governor are presented: Henry Evans Howell, Jr., of Norfolk is running as an Inde-

pendent. The one-time Democrat has been termed as the only livberal candidate. He has received the endorsement of the AFL-CIO running under the slogan "Keep the Big Boys Honest." The 51 year old lawyer attended the College of William and Mary and Old Dominion University before receiving his Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Virginia. He is a member of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association and the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce. Howell served as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates in 1960 and 1964. He has been a State Senator since 1966. The Democratic Candidate is George J. Kostel, age 43. After graduation from Hampden-Sydney he was educated for his Bachelor of Laws degree at Washington and Lee University. During the years 1951-53 he was a 1st

A Commentary :

Geist Is Forced To Define Geist is an honorary leadership organization whose primary purpose is to recognize and encourage quality achievement in scholarship, leadership, and service. Membership in Geist is recognition of individual students who have excelled in many aspects of college life. In addition to recognizing the efforts of students, Geist seeks to actively support the collegestudents, faculty, and administration, and the community through various services. One of the major projects of the year is the sponsoring of a bloodmobile each spring. Geist members try to promote interest and support not only at Longwood but also at Hampden-Sydney and in the Farmville community. The efforts of the drive were wellrewarded in that a state record of donations was made last year. Geist members are called upon at various times throughout the year to render assistance in such areas as registration and Founders Day. Another major service to Longwood students takes the form of the Elizabeth Burger

guests, and prospective students may visit. 4. Because a person cannot spend every minute of his time studying, the weekend provides a chance for students to relax and enjoy themselves. The weekend activities are there for all those who wish to participate and for all those who wish to be entertained. 5. Since we realize that education encompasses more than academics, we feel that this weekend provides an opportunity for students to expand their educational experience in other facets of life. Students are able to learn more about co-operation and responsibility during the preparation for the weekend. Taking a responsibility now might very possibly alleviate problems in the future. Furthermore, through working on Oktoberfest, students are given the chance to get to know their fellow students, to show their spirit and enthusiasm, and to demonstrate a loyalty for their Alma Mater.

Jackson Scholarship, awarded each spring to a deserving student. In addition to this annual scholarship, last year Geist sponsored a special scholarship in memory of Mary BethKienlen. During the spring and fall of the year, Geist holds its Recognition Assemblies in which juniors and seniors are tapped for membership. Another area in which Geist trys to serve the college is the sponsoring of the Oktoberfest Weekend. We feel that this festival is beneficial for several basic reasons: 1. Profits received by Geist are STRICTLY fed into the scholarship fund. Therefore, the week end is an humanitarian effort, not a capitalistic venture. 2. All campus organizations are given an opportunity to supplement budgets in order to provide needed funds to maintain their primary functions and specific projects. 3. The Oktoberfest Festival also serves as a good homecoming weekend for alumnae and as an occasion when parents,

Helpful Experience Define your higher things, Nancy Chase. Oktoberfest can teach how to operate under pressure, how to work with people, how to make ideas change to reality. Oktoberfest is a chance to make friends, to give of yourself, and to learn to accept the consequences. Oktoberfest is, unfortunately, one of those few times - another one is called Christmas — when any of us is allowed to share, to be happy, and to give totally to something which is believed in without being labeled as immature. So what if it is called colors? It's only a name. Do you want a place where you don't have anything to give loyalty to? Go out and find it - it won't be hard. Go to a place where you can devote all your time to the higher things; but I can promise that unless you add the dimension of experience to it, the knowledge will do you no good. You spoke of not looking to the future - do you not think the experience of working with something of this scope and the knowledge acquired of stage production, costuming, directing, organizing, and human relations... do you not think that these are not also parts of being a good teacher, a good social worker, a good community leader? Can you not see the two sides? If not, then you are as guilty as those who, sadly enough, live only for the red, green, and blue at Longwood. It takes both, living and learning, to make one a whole person. Even if you do not feel this is the way to express living, through the giving and sharing and working done in Oktoberfest, then at least dont condemn others for it. I ask you to look at both sides. Yes, the side you see does exist, but so does the other. Can you see the good? Sincerely, Susan Stutz

German Expressionist Prints

Will Be Exhibited Octoberis The National Carl Schurz Association, Inc. has sent to the Bedford Gallery a series of German Expressionist prints. These lithographs, drawings and woodcuts will be on exhibit beginning Monday, Oct. 18. Gallery Hours, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., 7-11 p.m., Mon. thru Thurs. and Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, 2p.m.-6p.m. and Sunday, 2 p.m.-10 p.m. Among the prints are works of Ernst Barlach, 1870-1938, a sculptor noted for his expressionistic interpretations of everyday life. Ernst Kirchner, 1880-1938, one of the founders of Die Brucke, is represented as are works by Otto Mueller, 1874-1930, Emil Nolde, 1867-1956, and many others. The works of these Germans show their emotional involvement with the realities of life before and after World War I. Their distortion of line and color stated a new reality which was difficult for their contemporaries to accept and which the Hitler regime could not tolerate.

Questions On Usage Of Library Answers Provided By Head Of Staff

The exhibition includes color slides and books illustrating the achievements of many of these German Expressionist and their By LYNNE PIERCE relationship with the Bauhaus, "We don't have any way here one of the most influential forces to compile the actual number in Twentieth Century Art. of students in the student body who use the collection," answered Mr. Charles Butler when questioned as to the number of stuREC SWIM dents who use the library. Mr. Butler, who heads the staff of the Dabney Lancaster Library, was approached after several Mon. thru Thurs. questions concerning the library had been raised by faculty mem10-11 bers and students. The questions covered such topics as usage of the library, the number of Fri.- 7:00-9:00 items which are stolen, and appropriations. Mr. Butler stated that out of Sat.-2:00-3:30 122,000 books in the library last year, a little over 59,000 had been checked out. However, he Sun.-7:30-9:00 added, "We don't count it book by book. One book could go out three times and the one next to it would stay there". Therefore, assuming that nearly half of the library was checked out would be a misconception. "We haven't had a staff large enough to take a running inventory, which one would have to do to get a real idea of our losses," said Mr. Butler when asked how many books had been stolen. However, he estimated that of 3,500 books on open shelf reserve last year, two per cent or seventy volumes had been stolen. A limited number of titles among the periodicals are sporadically hard hit by thefts, but most are left intact, which Mr. Butler attributes to the fact that "students don't make as much use of the periodicals as many other libraries I've been in". Mr. Butler said some sort of checking system would cut down o n the losses, but he felt it would cost too much to have checkers at the three public doors of the library during the

hours it was open. When asked if some type of electrical detection system would be cheaper than the loss of books in the long-run, he said he felt the initial cost of installation would be too great. Mr. Butler said the library has taken no steps to have any type of system approved and classified the situation as "just one of those unsolved problems". When asked how he felt the monetary appropriations of the library compared with other areas of the college, Mr. Butler replied that he felt it was well handled and that this library fares better than many in the state. "Library support in an institution is judged on what percentage of the entire appropriation for educational expenditures the library receives," and he added that this was influenced by the increasing cost of books and increases in the number of faculty and students. No system of priorities is imposed on the ordering of books according to Mr. Butler, although orders marked "rush" will be placed first. Mr. Butler said that giving each department an allotment had been unsuccessful because some would spend more than their share and others less. He said now "we keep an eye on requests and try to keep things in line". The Inter-Library Loan System is considered a major asset to the library. Mr. Butler explained that according to the regulations of the American Library Association, the system was only to be used by faculty members; however, the University of Virginia and other state libraries interpret it widely to include students. If a student wishes to borrow a book from another library, she must fill out a form with the title of the

The library will then forward the request to the library most likely to have the book. When asked to what extent Longwood had an archive, Mr. Butler replied that Seminar Two, in the basement, contained the "Longwood Archives". This consists of bound cataloges, college publications, minutes of meetings and miscellaneous information from the campus. He stated that the library had no intention at all of establishing an archives of important documents or gifts of papers which might be given to the school. He feels It will be necessary for Longwood to be of the stature of the University of Virginia or at least grant the doctorate degree before this type of archive will be useful.

Longwood Grows To Meet Student Demands By STEPHANIE SIVERT As you step over the pipes and make detours around the cement trucks in an effort to avoid the signs of* continuing progress and improvement" exemplified by construction on campus, do you ever wonder what Longwood might look like 5-10 years from now? Students who have been here for the past four years have witnessed the construction and renovation of a number of buildings on campus. Curry and Frazer dormitories, the Fine Arts complex, and the Coyner Home Economics building were all built to meet the needs of an expanding student body. A lot of changes have occurred regarding campus expansion in the past few years but even more are projected for the future.

is a new physical education building to be located across from Curry and Frazer. This new building has been designed to include among other things, a swimming pool with an adjoining walkout terrace, four tennis courts, and a 110 space parking lot for students. The Administration is optimistic that funds for the project will be made available allowing construction of the new facility to begin in the fall of 1972.

As a result of this new building, some of the funds requested for the next biennium will be used to demolish the present swimming pool now located in French gymnasium and convert that section into a recreational activities area.

This would also help to eliminate some of the pollution. Next year the college also hopes to get the funds to build a parking lot on Buffalo Street.

In explaining the college's plans for future expansion in regard to the planned high rise dormitories, Col. Abrams, Director of the physical plant, stated that "neither the Board of Education nor the State anticipates or has the desire for the CoUege to get that big but we are required to have plans in case it becomes necessary. The current feeling is that if another 400 resident student dorm was built during 19361978, the enroUment (of the college) would be considered by the Administration to be the right size."

Colleges In The News Banner Trial CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Department of Athletics at the University of Virginiahaspressed charges with the Judiciary Committee against five students because they violated the ban on flag waving at athletic events. The students displayed the banner, which read "Stop Expansion," at the Vanderbilt football game on Oct. 2 so that it would be seen by President Edgar F. Shannon and Governor Linwood Holton. Afterwards, the banner was presented to President Shannon. Howard Gordon, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said if the students were found guilty of disobeying the ban, they will not be severely punishad. Rift Widens WILLIAMSBURG - TheStudent Association Senate at the College of William and Mary defeated a resolution brought before it last week, which called for a referendum on the campus of student confidence in the organization. There has been some contention as to whether the Student Association represents the students and Mike Karp, who sponsored the resolution, claimed the rejection proved that the government was afraid of student opinion. The students seemed to have found another way to express their dissatisfaction when less than thirty per cent of the student body voted in a special election for vicepresident. Because so few voted, another election will be held and if no one is elected, the referendum will be held. Another incident developed at the same time i the resolution. Old Dominion Dormitory, which split from the SA, voted not to rejoin it and is challenging its authority. Mini-Semester STAUNTON - A committee at Mary Baldwin College is now considering a proposal that the college offer a short semester at the end of the regular year. The minisemester would consist of three weeks of intense study in one area and regular credit would be given for the work. The idea behind the plan is to allow a student to accelerate a subject without having to give up most of her summer. Protest Planned CHARLOTTESVILLE - University of Virginia Student Council President Thomas Collier has led the Student Council in calling on the students to join a mass protest on October 18 and 19 against expansion of the student body. The student body has been concerned with the increasing size of the student enrollment coupled with no increase in facilities. University President Edgar F. Shannon has asked the Student Council to abandon its plans for the demonstration. He says it can only hurt the school's image with the people who control the needed aid. Libraries RICHMOND AND STAUNTONThe libraries at the University of Richmond and Blue Ridge Community College both made the news this week for totally opposite reasons. The University has been presented with a book collection valued at $2,000, which includes seven volumes that once belonged to John Randolph of Roanoke. The Community College is facing the loss of its accreditation if the library facilities are not improved 15 to 20 per cent by 1973.

Dining Hall Annexation To Include Student Banquet Room By JUDY THORPE As most students have probably already noticed, Longwood College is expanding the student dining hall. The purpose of this project is to accomodate the increasing number of students and to eliminate the existing overcrowded conditions. The annexation will be built on two levels-the main floor and the downstairs level, and will seat approximately 450 additional people. One section of the new construction will be designed as a banquet room which will hold 100 students. Therefore, clubs and organizations may conduct banquets during regular meal

time. Two doors will adjoin the balcony level of the old dining hall and the roof, which will be a patio, of the new addition. Also, the entire dining hall will be centrally air conditioned and required fire escapes are to be built. Furthermore, the kitchens are to be painted and the appliances rearranged to improve efficiency. Dishwashing has presented a problem and to remedy it, the main dishwashing room will be rebuilt and enlarged. Colonel B. B. Abrams, Director of the Physical Plant, reports that the construction will cost $450,000 and will be ready for use in September, 1972.

Two New Faculty Added To College's Education Department By VALERIE BLANKS The education department has added two new professors to their teaching staff this year. These two men are Mr. J. Lee Pernbe rton and Mr. David Blevins. Mr. Pemberton, who is from Richmond, received his bachelor's degree from Emory and Henry and his master's from UVA. He has taught on an elementary level as well as being principal of an elementary school in Richmond. His last position was at a non-graded elementary school in Chesterfield County. Mr. Pemberton is very much interested in this non-graded system on the elementary level. He said that the school in Chesterfield County was the first to initiate this idea in central Va., but that it is spreading rapidly. Under this program the child works at his own level of capacity, possibly advancing in one subject more than others. The methods of teaching writing, creative, composition and handwriting, and reading in elementary schools are taught by Mr. Pemberton. He is also a supervisor for student teachers. Mr. Pemberton and his wife live here in Farmville and have two little girls. Mr. David Blevins whose home is in Arlington County received his bachelor's degree from Madison. He then taught subjects in

the field of social studies for six years in Fairfax County. During the two years before he came to Longwood, Mr. Blevins was a full time student at UVA, where he received his master's degree. He is now finishing up his dissertation and hopes to have his doctorate by this summer. Mr. Blevins teaches classes in the methods of secondary education and is a supervisor of student teachers. In the capacity of this job he is "passionately committed to humanizing public education." Besides teaching, Mr. Blevins has many outside interests. He has been to Europe six times and London is his favorite city. He is especially interested in music and plays the drums and guitar. He likes different types of music, "blues" and hard rock topping the list.

An astrologist by avocation, he began to correlate this cycle with birth data and astrologic charts. SAYS Dr. Jonas decided that the position of the sun and moon at the time of a woman's birth offers the key to her fertility. It indicates the days on which she may conceive for the rest of her life. By abstaining from intercourse on these days she may avoid pregnancy; or, if she wants to conceive, she has only to choose these days. Furthermore, Dr. Jonas claims, miscarriages and birth defects result when conception occurs at a particular junction of the sun, moon, and planets. Similarly, he believes, the sex of a child is determined by astrologic data at the time of conception. With knowledge of these periods, a woman can avoid tragedy and bear healthy children of the desired sex.

Administration's Position Explained On Vending Machines posed to cup drinks. Several problems are presented if such systems are used. A problem arises in the disposal of the drink cans and bottles. This situation creates an increase in the physical disposal, and also many times cans and bottles may be discarded in the buildings and on the grounds instead of in trash containers. The drink company would be required to charge 20? per bottled or canned drink to balance their investment. Each bottle costs the company 5<? while the cup costs 1<?,

The never ending question of the vending machine

By JUDY THORPE Many students have issued requests and complaints concerning the vending machines on campus; however, administration feels that there are many problems which the students do not understand. There are approximately 40 vending machines on campus which are furnished by the Lynchburg Coca-Cola Bottling Com-

pany. These number of machines comprise an investment for the company of about $50,000. Each new machine installation must carry with it a guarantee that it will be profitable for the company. If a machine is not profitable, then it is removed. Requests have been turned in especially concerning the drink machines. Many people prefer bottled or canned drinks as op-

New Elementary Education

The Coca-Cola Company states that their margin of profit would be reduced 75ri if machines vending bottles and cans were used. Several reasons contribute to this decreased profit. A cup machine can supply 1,000 drinks whereas a bottle machine supplies only 226 drinks. This condition would require more frequent trips by the service man and would ultimately necessitate an increase in salary. Suggestions have also been made as to the installations of more machines such as sandwich machines and ice cream machines. If the machines are profitable, there is not available space or electrical service to supply the machines. If a machine was installed in one dor-

Among the new courses added to the curriculum this fall is a seminar for senior Elementary Education majors. (Education 460). The major emphasis in the course is on the uses of the Inner-City Simulation Laboratory which includes a series of films through which the student is introduced to the school, the principal, and the faculty. The films also present various problems and situations within the school which are to be discussed. Each student also uses the SRA Participant's Unit which contains cumulative record folders, case studies, and sociometric data. An informal discussion is held with Mr. George P.Elliott,acting as "more of a guide than an instructor." Another major emphasis is the scheduling of authorities in the field of education for the students to listen to and to question. The lectures will begin Nov. 15 and continue through Jan. 10 and deals with topics such as "The Problems of Appalachia."

Comments by the students are all favorable and full of enthusiasm. The students said that the seminar is giving them some practical experience because it places them in the role of teacher. One student pointed out that they are made aware of various points of view and a variety of reactions and opinions through the informal discussion. Another student said that this course provided them with a real situation rather than an ideal one such as that of the campus school. In this course, which is an outgrowth of "Schools in the American Community (Education 453), they deal with underprivileged children and children from the ghetto. Although the meeting time is MWF at 9:00, the class often continues longer than the 50 minute time period. The times ofthe sessions are very flexible to allow for overtime and double-sessions. This seminar belongs to the students and it is up to them to decide how the class is organized.

Greeks Prepare For Rush Maintain Active Schedules Coke parties will be held by all the sororities on Thursday, October 21, in the chapter rooms. The Longwood Panhellenic Council will be represented by President Carolyn Talbot at the National Panhellenic Convention in Scottsdale, Arizona. The collegiate session will be November 5-7. Alpha Sigma Alpha Alpha Sigma Alpha presented a fashion show again this year sponsored by Baldwin's. It was held the night of October 12 and featured Hampden - Sydney and Longwood models. Dee nee Arvin

Zeta Tau Alpha Zeta Tau Alpha was visited by their Providence President, Mrs. Kathleen White, on Friday and Saturday. She was present for the October 14 Founders Day ceremony of Alpha Chapter. Also that night, Mrs. Barbara Stonikinis was initiated. She will serve as one of Zeta's advisors.

chine costs $1,000 and would have to contain $200 in change. These machines would have to be purchased by the college and an amount of $14,400 would be incorporated into students' fees in order to pay for the change machines. Experience shows that the machines are operable only 50ri of the time and an experienced serviceman would have to come from Richmond or one would have to be hired by the college. The administration feels that the college and its students cannot afford to pay for these machines and the salary of someone to service them. Change may be obtained now in the Information Office and in the Office of the Director of Lank ford Building. The Administration is open to constructive suggestions. Suggestions are welcome concerning the different types of machines located on campus and the ways in which the vending machines could be relocated and give the college its greatest return. The college receives 10ri of the $50,000 profits and this amount is used for the students in some manner. The machines ^."e installed to aid the students. Suggestions should be made to President Willett or Jimmy H. Paul, Business Manager and treasurer.

mitory, it would be only equally fair to install them in all dormitories. Also, the town of Farmville has recently passed a tax on vending machines which will take effect on January 1, 1972. The machines are taxed according to their content following this scale. (1) A tax of $20.00 a year is charged for all jukeboxes. (2) A tax of $10.00 per year is placed on each washer and dryer. (3) Taxes on other vending machines are set up as follows: Contents amounting 10<? to 14?, the tax wiU be $10.00 per year per machine. Contents amounting 15<? to 19?, the tax will be $15.00 per year. Contents amounting 20<? to34<?, the tax wiU be $25.00 per year. Contents amounting 35? to 59?, the tax will be $35.00 per year. If any machine contains a combination of the various prices, the highest bracket of tax is paid. This tax set up by Farmville has to be paid by the Bottling Company which vould further reduce the company's piofits. In addition to food machines, requests for charge machines have been received. If such machines were installed, each dormitory would receive one which woi^d b; 12 locations. Each ma-

The schedule for the antiwai offensive for this fall, which will include a "Week of People's Action" aimed at commemorating the Attica revolt and accepting the Vietnamese 7-point peace proposal, has been announced by the People's Coalition for Peace and Justice. The group also expects a show of massive civil-disobedience that will equal the May Day activities of last spring. The People's Coalition received a poor turn-out on the Oct. 2 'Day of Solidarity with Political

Prisoners", which they attributed to problems with organization. Now they have allied themselves with the National Peace Action Coalition and together they issued a call for regional demonstrations in cities, including San Francisco and Washington, and a national moratorium on business as usual which was to coincide with Oct. 13, "Set the Date in '71". Hepresentation at these rallies were reported to be much smaller than usual. People's Armistice Day on Monday, Oct. 25, will begin People's Action Week. A ceremony to accept the 7-point Peace Proposal of the Provisional Hevolutionary Government of Vietnam will be held at noon on the grounds of the Washington Monument in the Sylvan Theatre. The chief negotiator for the PRG at the Paris Peace Conference, Madame Nguyen Tgi Binh, is expected to address the group by telephone. An Attica Memorial Service will take place at the White House on Tuesday at 11 a.m. Lafayette Park across the street will be the scene of a continuing presence throughout the week. The Labor and Commerce Departments will be the scenes of lobbying and demonstrations on Wednesday which will support a guaranteed annual income of

$6,500 for a family of four which has been demanded by the People's Coalition. "International Brigades," divisions of the People's Coalition, are scheduled to march on the State Department on Thursday Oct. 28. The group will protest against the U.S. support it feels is being shown for the genocidal policies of West Pakistan's army against the people of Kast Pakistan. Demonstrators will surround the White House on ! riday to conclude theweekand will attempt to stop all comings and goings in a show of inassiv civil disobedience. Since the People's Coalition has not applied fur .i demonstration permit, they expect massive arrest., to take place.

which is headed by Mr. Dalton, and senior Geist members, who have one vote a piece. All nominations are sent to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where they are approved by the editors of the annual publication, "Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges." One of the advantages of the Who's Who organization is that with the assistance of educational and business consultants, they maintain a student placement service that provides employment contacts for graduating stu-
