News Briefs Drug Law President Nixon has announced that he is prepared to cut off military and economic aid to all countries that contribute to the United States narcotics problem. He considers keeping dangerous drugs out of the United States just as important as keeping armed enemy forces from landing in the United States. Nixon made his remarks at a three day International Narcotics Control Conference which brings together United States State Department Narcotics Control officers from fifty-four foreign countries to discuss the country's efforts to put down the passage of dangerous drugs. Israeli Raid The last Israeli forces have withdrawn from Southern Lebanon after occupying it for 33 hours. They left behind confusing reports about a conflict between Lebanon and the Palestine guerrillas. David Elaza, Israeli chief of Staff has called the operation a complete success in its goal of destroying guerrilla bases, although most of the commands fled and few were killed. Three POWs Released North Vietnam released three American prisoners of war at a special army ceremony in Hanoi. The men were the first Americans to be released by Hanoi since 1969. Evidence shows that the Soviet airplane expected to carry these prisoners out of North Vietnam may bypass Laos and make its first landing in Burma. This would deny U.S. officials the opportunity to take control of the three men in the Laotian capital and get them away from the American antiwar activists who are escorting them. American officials are meeting every plane arriving here from Hanoi until the prisoners come out. Races For Congress Although Nixon has been leading McGovern by a substantial margin in the Harris survey, Democrats are ahead in nationwide races for Congress 46 to 41 per cent. Except for the Midwest where the GOP holds a 5 point lead Democrats running in other parts of the country average 9 to 13 points ahead of the Republicans. While both the contests for the White House and the control of Congress can change voters are expressing intentions to split their tickets this fall. The total spread between party votes for President and those for Congress run a full 39 per cent.

Mock Elections To Be Held To Obtain Student Viewpoints By BARBERA RADFORD "Last year the System made a mistake. It gave eighteen-yearolds the right to vote." So begins the voter registration information in Chicago's album CHICAGO. Whether mistake or no, most students on Longwood's campus are voting for the first time. A mock Election is being held the week of October 2-6 to help those who have never before voted in an election. Since the ' youth vote" is so important in the upcoming Presidential election, Student Government and Student Union, the organizing units behind the election, feel it will be interesting to know how the college students will vote in November. The Mock Election week will be opened Monday, October 2, with information and campaign material about the three presidential candidates on the Virginia ballot. Richard Nixon is hoping to return to the White House for the Republicans. George McGovern, the liberal candidate from South Dakota, is running on the Democratic ticket. John

Schmidt, a Republican from California, is running on the American Independent Party ticket. The American Independent Party, a third party organization, was formed in 1968 to try to boost Governor George Wallace of Alabama to the White House. Tentatively the rest of the week is scheduled as follows: Tuesday, from 1-2 p.m. in the Gold Room there will be debates between representatives of the candidates. At 7:30 p.m. that same day speeches presenting the views of each of the candidates will be presented. Wednesday brings open campaigning on campus. Longwood has two youth political organizations, the Young Republicans and the Young Democrats. When contacted, Dr. James Helms, sponsor of the Young Republicans, said the organization would be unable to participate in any campaigning during the Mock Election, since the group is undergoing reorganization at this time. They will be campaigning on behalf of Nixon later in the (Continued on Page 6)

Honor Systems It is often difficult to choose a subject for an editorial, but two events occurred recently which made honor systems seem a likely topic. First, a student brought me the article at the right which condemns these systems. Then I talked to a freshman who was extremely upset because her hall had just had a meeting to discuss the fact that a large amount of money had been taken in a matter of a few days. Mr. Johnson supports his argument by trying to show that academic communities are unique in thai thÂťy are granted privileges that other communities are not. He compares us to the com munities around us and concludes that we are a "dictatorial, authoritarian or closed community, one which operates by means of commands . . . ' I have to agree with Mr. Johnson that we are unique. Of all of the communities which compose our society, the academic is the only one that is not organized for profit and gain on a material basis It is the only one dedicated to the higher purpose of training people to serve others through the use of their knowledge. It is only after we enter the other communities, that Mr. Johnson seems to think so highly of, that we learn to place the value of the dollar over the value of our integrity. The purpose of colleges and universities, ideally, is to take the finest members of our society and train them for leadership roles. If leaders are not capable of trusting one another and living by a system of honorable behavior toward one another, then we can never hope that our society will operate in fundamental principles of integrity. The college community is also the only one that suddenly uproots a person from one environment and places her in a strange one. The student has to put the values she's been taught all of her life to the test among strange people and customs. It would be a great deal to ask her to maintain these values with no guidelines to help her along. Mr. Johnson points to the other communities of our society and implies that they are better off because they lack honor systems. Perhaps it is because of the system he has been exposed to. I'm not familiar with the Mary Washington system, which he uses as an example, but I am familiar with the LongWOOd system. There are many complaints about it and some are quite justified. The important thing to remember is that our system works. It isn't oppressive or unfair or dictatorial. How many of us are really afraid to leave our doors unlocked or to lend a possession to a friend? How many of us will carry away fond memories of the loyalty and trust we felt for each other? LongWOOd'8 system is not infallible. The freshman I mentioned at the beginning of the editorial will probably have some difficulty believing in it at first Hopefully, she will realize that our system exists to try and guide those people who will insist on fighting it. What we all must do is reach beyond the specific requirements of the Longwood Honor System and try to understand the principles behind it. Honesty and fairness are all that one person can really ask of another. If we base our lives, here at Longwood and later, on these principles, we can only be better people and hopefully form a better so ciety. No, Mr. Johnson, other communities are not better because they do not have honor systems. They are poorer because they lack them. LYNNE

Why Does The Academia Need Honor System? EDITOR'S NOTE: This letter appeared in a recent issue of the Richmond NEWS LEADER and was brought to THE ROTUNDA by a student who thought it might be of interest to Longwood students. An editorial comment on its contents appears at the left. Editor, The News Leader: A most significant event has just taken place in the U. S. District Court in Richmond, the hearing of a suit brought by a former Mary Washington College student which challenges the right of the college's rector and board of visitors to delegate disciplinary powers to a student group, the Honor Council. What is so significant about this case is that it is bringing to the attention of the public the existence of an honor system which is unique to the academic community (and the military). The question that needs to be asked is not whether power delegated by the State legislature to the college can be turned over to the students (which is the question posed by Judge Merhige) but whether the State can ever turn over the functions of policing and judging to any individual or group

other than the officially established government courts and police force, e.g., to the publicly appointed college administrators or student honor council or any other private group. Actually, the most important question that should be asked is why does the academic community have an honor system? Why do we not find an honor system in a residential, business, or industrial community? What is unique about the academic community is that it would have not only an honor system, but such other features as student government, tenure for faculty and a special freedom of speech designated as academic freedom? The reason for the existence of the honor system and all the other special features of the academic realm is due to the fact that the academic community is totally unlike other societal communities which exist in a free society. It contains all of the elements which would be found onl> in a dictatorial, authoritarian, or closed community, one which

operates by means of commands, one which attempts to accomplish its ends by means of force. Assistant Attorney General D. Patrick Lacey argued, in his attempt to have Judge Merhige not issue a temporary restraining order permitting reenrollment of the former Mary Washington College student, that this case "represents a most serious threat to the lifeblood of the institution. This is a direct attack on the honor council system." Fortunately, this case is a direct attack on the honor council system, an attack that is long overdue. But hopefully it may help to serve as a means of exposing not only the honor system, but the completely irrational nature of the entire nonfree, authoritarian academic community, a community that presents an environment that is the antithesis of the type of environment which is absolutely necessary for proper mental development.

'The Lion In Winter' To Be First Major Production Of The Year By BELINDA BRUGH The Longwood Player's Open House was held in Jarman Auditorium on September 16. The Dpen house initiated the college's current theatrical season. The program included words of welcome from Dr. Patton Lock wood, chairman of the Department of Speech and Dramatic Arts, a showing of slides from past productions, and the presentation of "The Clocks," a one-act play written by Carl Larsen and directed by Jessie Reter. The cast included Joyce Saunders, Sue McIntosh, Jo Anne Noseck, Patsy Butler, and Belinda Brugh. The first full length play to be presented this fall, the much acclaimed, "The Lion in Winter," was announced at the open house. The production will be under the direction of Dr. Patton Lockwood. Casting has been completed and rehearsals are under way.

The cast list includes faces both familiar and new to the Longwood audiences. Belinda Brugh, whose last performance was a? Medea in the play of that same name is cast as the remarkable queen, Eleanor of Aquilane. Dave Clark, a senior at HampdenSydney, will be portraying the eldest son in the royal family, Richard. His last performance in a major production as Jimmy in "Look Back in Anger" is still remembered as one of the best of that season. Stanley Kelsey is a resident of Farmville. He is cast as the sniveling younger son, John. His last acting assipment was in "The Tempest." Accepting her first role in a major production is Jeffree Hudson. She is a newcomer and will be playing the role of the beautiful Alais Capet. The demanding role of Henry n was won by Lee Tatum. Tatum is another newcomer to the

Longwood stage but certainly not a newcomer to the theatre. During his college career at the University of Virginia he was voted best actor. He has since been a member of several theatre groups and is now a resident of Farmville. Bob Webber, a professor in the math department at Longwood, is cast as Phillip Capet, King of France. He comes to us from the University of Richmond where he was an active participant in their productions. Dawson Nash will portray the role of Geoffrey. He is from Baltimore, Maryland and is a freshman at Hampden-Sydney. From all indications this will be only the first of many appearances on the Longwood stage for Dawson.

"Cinema '72" Presents Year Of Film Classics By MARLENE OLIVER Dr. Charlotte Hooker of the English department has announced the opening of "Cinema '72". The first film of the series, to be shown October 2 at 7:30 in Bedford auditorium, is INTOLERANCE. This film, the 1916 D. W. Griffith epic depicting man's inhumanity to man throughout the ages, stars Mae Marsh and Lillian Gish. It is a silent film and there will be piano accompaniment by Miss Frieda Myers of the music department to set the mood of an old-time movie theater. In the film, Griffith recreated the entire kingdom of Babylon. This scene is called "one of the most spectacular epic scenes ever filmed." INTOLERANCE was chosen due to the success last year of another of Griffith's films. THE BIRTH OF THE NATION. This year's film series was made possible due to the contributions made by last year's audiences. In order to continue this series in future years, students are asked to make a donation of fifty cents. Other bright spots in this year's series will be: four 1917 Charlie Chaplin comedies, Greta Garbo's first comedy, as well as some more recent epics. These films will be shown on Monday nights throughout the year, at 7:30 p.m. in Bedford. The films in this year's series were chosen by a committee which included, besides Dr. Hooker: Miss Barbara Bishop of the Art Department; Mr. Don Stuart of the English Department; Miss Debbi Abernathy, a Senior English major; and Miss Stella Simmons, a graduate student in English.

Silverman is one of the attractions the Student Union has arranged for this year.

Student Union Offers Many New Weekend Activities By PAM WATSON "What this school needs is something to do on the week ends." Improbable as it might seem this statement is coming true this semester. The Student Union has a number of varied activities planned for week ends as well as weekdays. The program opens Friday September 29 with a concert by the Silverman, a three-piece folk singing group that will perform in Jarman at 7:30 p.m. Cost will be $1.00 per person. To complete the week end, the movie "Woodstock" will be shown on Saturday night, September 30, in French Gym. In keeping with the upcoming presidential election, the Student Union, Elections Committee, Young Republicans, and the newly formed Young Democrats are making plans for Longwood's own mock election to be held October 2-6. On Monday, October 2, information pertaining to the election will be available in the dining hall. Campaign speeches for the candidates will be given on Tuesday and on Wednesday rallys will be held throughout the campus. Thursday, October 6, is mock election day and voting machines will be available for students' use. Registration for classes this year will be on Saturday, December 2, and the Student Union has a concert lined up for Friday night, December 1, and a mixer dance for Saturday.

For all those in-between week ends, Student Union has a number of trips planned called "Wheels." A bus that holds approximately 40 people will be available on various week ends to take students to different places around Virginia. Trips will be made to Williamsburg on October 14, Skyline Drive the latter part of October, and to Saylor's Creek, Appomattox, and other local historical places. On December 9, a bus will leave for Richmond to go Christmas shopping. Cost for each trip will be approximately $.50. Meetings for the Student Union are held every Monday night at 6:45 p.m. in Lankford and are open to anyone who wishes to come. According to Dragon Chandler, Chairman of the Union, anyone attending the meetings is encouraged to offer suggestions and is also able to vote in deciding upcoming plans or activities.

Out-Of-Staters Involved In New Situation By DEBBIE BASTEK A new residence hall policy went Into effect this year for out-of-state students on a trial basil. Tin'policy stems from discussions held last year between these student! and Administration officials who were interested in the unique problems they face at Longwooil.

According to information recoved from out-of-state students last year, one of the major problems in adjusting to college life at Longwood was finding yourself one of the few people left on the dorm hall on a typical "suitcase weekend"- a particularly narrowing experience for the freshman who was the only student from her area attending Longwood. Without the advantages many Virginia students have of living close by, or already knowing friends on campus from their high schools or hometowns, a number of students found the enevitable Fridaythrough-Sunday isolation very hard to get used to, and equally difficult was making contact with

others from their areas who might have transportation home. New Dorm Policy In an attempt to respond to and help solve these and some other residence hall problems encountered by these students in the past, the Dean of Students office has devised a new dorm program which went into effect this fall. Of the 46 girls living on second floor Tabb, a little over half of them are students from eight different states. A letter was written to each out-of-state freshman this summer asking if she would like to room with another out-ofstate student or a student from Virginia. The majority of the girls requested that they room with other students from outof-state, while others requested roommates from in-state. For example, some of the girls wanted to room with friends from back home, the same choice that is given to all students. Dean Nuckols, the Assistant

Dean of Students and the person primarily in charge of housing, remarked: '-vVe're interested in feedback. We want to know how it's working. We want to know about housing as a whole, not just that hall. We want to individualize housing as much as possible by trying to give a student some say over her living environment." Both out-of-state students and students from Virginia living on the hall were questioned by The Rotunda about what advantages they felt their environment offered as well as its drawbacks.

Feedback Given (Texas) "We like it. We like knowing the girls from Virginia on our hall, too." (Texas) "We've all got something in common. I think it helps a lot of people if they're here by themselves." (New Jersey) "No, I don't think it's good in every respect.

A new system of transportation is working unusually well this fall at the University of Virginia. Four buses are providing service daily for about 3,300 students. Hopefully, more students will decide to ride the buses, instead of driving, to cut down on the traffic problem. If the buses prove satisfactory, more buses will be used.

Emphasis on Dorm Life The work of student deans at Oberlin College in Ohio has under gone a major reorganization. Changes are based on function and aimed at promoting educational aspects of dormitory life. There is growing emphasis over the past several years on educational and social aspects of dormitory life. "Today, the Facilities in which students live and eat are as important educationally as those in which they study," said Dean of Students George H. Langeler. Under the reorganization, each student dean is responsible for a different area of activity rather than assiped to work primarily with men or women. All will continue as the counseling, dorm liaison, committees and projects.

Grades Three fourths of the Stanford University students questioned prefer the grading system which was introduced in 1970. The present system included the grades "A" for exceptional performance, "B" for superior performances, "C* for satisfactory and a "plus" for passing performance. Students are allowed to take any course on a pass/fail basis. The sole academic penalty for failure to complete a course satisfactorily is loss of credit toward graduation. The faculty, however, was less favorable toward the present system.

Placement Office Offers Career And Employment Counseling By JANET LYNN TENNYSON Students who are using their education at Longwood as a springboard to employment will be interested in the present job opportunities. On campus, there is an office which specializes in giving counseling as to the opportunities in employment and career planning.

Placement Office The Placement Office, under its director, Mr. Raymond E. Alie, feels "the students have at their disposal the most current information pertaining to the supply and demand of personnel in the teaching field." This is not an attempt to persuade or dissuade individuals to enter specific areas. It consists of suggestions and facts as to the availability of jobs at the present time in the hope students will realize that going into or continuing instruction in an area of low demand will bring less chances of employment. Constantly there resounds the

rumor that there is an over supply of teachers on a national scale. As for our state of Virginia, the college feels while there are many people prepared to teach, there is NOT a general oversupply at this time. One such reason for the basis of this is the fact that less than half of the Virginia public schools system have a kindergarten program in progress.

A Closer Look . More specifically, there are fields that have what seems to be an oversupply of teachers. For example, the category of social studies is quite a broad area and has been shown to have enough teachers. Yet with a closer look, there are areas within the broad category which really are in need of qualified personnel. It also appears that physical education is plagued by an oversupply, but the data does not distinguish between male and female teachers. There is, in fact, a shortage of female (Continued on Page 8)

Graduation Gowns Major Topic Of First Senior Class Meeting

Board Discusses Plans For National Student Government Day By BECKY NICHOLSON The Student Action Zone (SAZ) and a Student Press Conference were to highlight National Student Government Day yesterday. Representatives of the major Boards, various organizations, and committees on campus assembled in the Rotunda where students asked questions of them and offered suggestions. During the day members from the various Boards and organizations were to meet with administrative officials in order to improve communication between students and the administration. Several, who participated in the student-administrator groups were: RobinGlascock with Dean Blackwell, Sandy Oliver with Dean Wilson, and Becky West with Dean Heintz. Others who participated in this function were; Terry Jones who met with Dean Nuckols, Becky Bailey with

Dean Wells, and Bobbsie Bannin with Dean Gussett. The finale of Student Government Day was to be a Student Press Conference in the Gold Room. Again, students were encouraged to make recommendations and ask questions. Legislative Board members were told they were responsible for putting posters on the doors of the offices they would be working. During the meeting Board members planned for banners and posters and decided to turn campus publicity for the day over to the publicity committees of each class. Also at its meeting last week, Board members approved, conditionally of having beer at the "vVoodstock" film scheduled for September 30 in French Gymnasium. Before beer is allowed the Board will check with the state law and Residence Board.

R ad ford College Ready For 'Real' Participation By Students At the conclusion of the last of a series of three convocations at Radford College, President Donald N. Dedmon promised that the faculty and the students will be "real" and not "sham" participants in the governing of the college. "In the '70's, either we will do a better job of building into our systems especially our system of academic freedom and tenure - greater concern for the responsible participation, or our special rights so essential to intellectual life will be increasingly threatened," said the reform-minded Dedmon. This "meaning participation" must be accompanied by "a comparable concern for the responsible exercise of those rights," he warned.

filing technical appeals of Dalton's ruling, throwing out part of his claims to $50,000 in damages.

A Meaningful System Radford President Dedmon went on to say, "I think many of you know my disdain for ... a system created for the purpose of giving the appearance of consultation and meaningful participation . . . such fraudulent systems are enormous consumers of everybody's time." "As a member of an academic community, we have an unavoidable obligation to insist upon the responsible behavior of every person who claims membership in our community," commented Dedmon. In the future Radford ought to be governed by a college senate or assembly in which all parts of the academic community are represented. They will be dealing with a wide range of issues and make recommendations directly to the president.

By JEANNIE ENGLAND The final decision of whether to buy or rent caps and gowns for graduation dominated the first meeting of the Senior Class. After much deliberation, the majority chose the relatively new and economical idea of purchasing disposable caps and gowns rather than the customary rental system. The Seniors also voted to order disposable hoods with the gowns; however, the final decision must be passed by the Academic Affairs Committee. Seniors will be able to place orders for caps and gowns within the next few weeks, and those desiring to wear other robes will be allowed to do so.

feels this will be a "crucial year" and that the only way to see change made is by encouraging everyone to exercise his right to vote. Lewis summarized his feelings by saying, "I'm convinced that, if we can't use the vote to turn this country around in 1972, we might have to turn it upsidedown in 1973".

for them to vote in masses as a block. He concluded his speech by pointing out that politics is one of the few things that is not compulsory and that if people want things to be the same on the day after tomorrow as they were on the day before yesterday, then "all you have to do is nothing".

JULIAN BOND

John Lewis By LYNNE PIERCE The Prince Edward County Progressive Political Movement sponsored a rally at the First Baptist Church last Friday to encourage voter registration. Guest speakers John Lewis and Julian Bond appeared to encourage blacks and young people not only to register, but to work in the effort to register others. JOHN LEWIS John Lewis has been active in the civil rights movement for many years. In 1960, he organized the first lunch counter sit-in in Nashville, and the next year lie participated in the CORE -sponsored Freedom Ride. In 1963, he was elected chairman of tlie Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and was an organizer of the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965. As the first speaker of the day, Lewis explained that he ami Bond had been touring the eleven southern states for the Voter Education Project encouraging blacks, young and the poor to register. He pointed out that these people liad been waiting many years for the South to change its ways, but that no progress had been made. He

Julian Bond has had an active political career although it only stems from 1965. That year he was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives, but his civil rights activities and opposition to the Vietnam war led to a vote not to seat him. He was elected to this seat three times before the United States Supreme Court ruled that he must be seated. At the Democratic Convention in 1968, Bond acted as co-chairman of the challenge delegation that unseated the regular delegation. Later he was nominated for vice-president, although his age made him ineligible. He suggested many reforms in the procedure for selecting delegates which were adopted and led to his choice as a delegate to the 1972 convention. Bond was also a founding member of SNCC and was an officer of the organization until 1966. He has recently published a new book, ATIMETOSPEAK.ATIME TO ACT. The first thing Bond emphasized after he stepped to the podium was that he and Lewis did not wish to influence the voters to one party or the other, but only to vote. He made his feelings felt though by saying, "I wouldn't stand up here and ask you to vote for George McGovern. I wouldn't have the nerve to ask you to vote for Richard Nixon", Bond went on to explain that he wanted politics to stand for people and not election day activities. He feels, like Lewis, that the only way for young people and blacks to get fair treatment and have their demands met is

Chess proved to be very popular when they played at the Colleague Picnic.

Placement Office (Continued from Page 5) physical education teachers while there is an oversupply of males in this area. As in education, the Placement Office stresses strongly the importance of multiple certification. "At times, we have had requests for such combinations as a history-science teacher," commented Mr. Alie. An individual who certifies in two areas is much more employable and desirable. Students should check with their advisors or with the Office of the Dean for guidelines.

Figures For '72 Class

Julian Bond

Baldridge Cited For Metal Work Accomplishments Mark Baldridge, Instructor of Art at Longwood College, recently had five pieces of sterling silver metalwork accepted in the Tenth Biennial Exhibition of the Creative Crafts Council in Washington, D. C. A $50 prize was awarded to Mr. Baldridge for the Most Creative Functional Design in any Media - his sterling and gold plated chess set. The show is sponsored by the Creative Crafts Council of Washington, D. C, and continues through October 6. Over 400 entries were submitted and only 174 pieces were exhibited at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Gallery.

The figures from the Class of 1972 show that of those who sought employment, 83 per cent are employed. In regard to those who wished to teach, 82 per cent have signed contracts for the coming academic year. These figures could have been considerably higher if some graduates were more flexible in the choice of localities in which to teach. Again it follows, the greater the flexibility in this area, the better the prospects of obtaining a job. Since the majority of students, who finish their schooling at Longwood, enter the educational field, the Placement Office puts more concentration on this area. However, students are reminded

that in the nonteaching fields, a variety of opportunities are available through studies at Longwood.

For Job Counseling For this and other reasons, the Dean of the College and his staff, the department chairmen, the faculty and the Director of the Placement Office are the numerous people to see to obtain counseling and information pertaining to career choices.

Upperclass Dorms Elect Presidents For Fall Semester By JANET LYNN TENNYSON Upperclassmen dormitories elected presidents last week, to serve the coming academic semester. Students serving as dorm presidents work closely with Resident Board officers through out the year. Those elected are: Beryl Dixon - Cox, Lee Sharr and Carolyn Tuttle - Curry, Yolanda Old and Barbara Siedleki Frazer, Arlene Redmond Stubbs, and Janice Poole-Wheeler. For the time being, freshmen dorms will be represented by Resiuent Counselors until October when dorm presidents, from those dorms, can be elected.
