Q - If I could find an apartment in Farmville, I still couldn't come to Longwood as a day student. What is the purpose of this residency ruling? What is the relationship between Longwood's residency ruling and the Pratz case (meaning that male students who are not from the area and not living with relatives can still attend Longwood as day stu dents)? Isn't it against the law to have different housing rules for male and female students? G.H. A- According to the Dean of Student's Office, the purpose of the residency ruling is best expressed by quoting from the Longwood College Bulletin (p. 24) and the Student Handbook (p.80): "As a residential institution, Longwood College believes group living provides opportunities for personal development and education, and such group living leads to an appreciation of the responsibilities of group behavior. The College therefore requires all female students, with the exception of those local students who prefer to live at home, to live in the residence halls. Any other exception must be made by a Hearing Board convened by the Dean of Students." In the Pratz case it was held that, "Parietal rules requiring the use of on-campus residence and dining facilitiesareconstitutional and enforceable.'' (August 11, 1970). This decision was upheld by the United States Supreme Court on April 5, 1971. Therefore, the Longwood College residence requirement is deemed constitutional and enforceable. If the College admitted male resident students, the housing facilities would have to be comparable in quality and quantity. However, only male day students are included in the admissions policy of the College. Further, there have been several court cases in which separate social regulations for male and female students have been upheld. Q - Why should the College continue to run the Tea Room at such a loss? G.H. A - According to Mr. Paul ARA operate all fond service facilities on campus which Include the Tea Room, Snack Bar, Dining Hall, Vending Machine Services, and Catering Service not only for College functions, but l-.trmville BVentl as well. ARA operates all thes< (Continued on Page 4)
After a week of speeches, campaign rallies and conferences, elections for major and minor offices were held on December 3 and 5. Elected as Chairman of Legislative Board, chairman of Residence Board, and chairman of Judicial Board were Grace Anne Overton, Pat Watson, and Becky Jefferson respectively. Grace Anne Overton One of Grace Anne's principal goals as chairman of the Legislative Board will be to give a full vote, rather than a half vote, to freshmen. She is currently involved in this project. She also anticipates a change in the signing out procedure. Several systems have been proposed, but no decisions have been made at this point. "A lot of things are being considered right now" Grace Anne said with regards to changes in student government. Several proposals are up before the board of visitors, but are still being discussed. Pat Watson Pat Watson feels that the new Self-Regulatory Curfew Policy will go into effect some time during second semester. "There are details to be worked out, but overall, I feel we will have a workable system," she commented. Pat also feels one problem with Residence Board in the past has been the education of the student body concerning new regulations as they are changed frequently. "With this in mind," she stated, ' after the new system Mas been presented to the Residence Hall students a question and answer panel may be set up in the New Smoker. Students will have the opportunity to talk to Residence Board members about individual questions they may have concerning the new system."
Grace Anne Overton Becky Jefferson As chairman of the Judicial Board, Becky Jefferson does not anticipate a lot of changes in the upcoming year. "We are under set proceeding which come from the Attorney General's Office, Becky said. "If there were room for many changes they would have been made before now, but most of it is out of our hands." Any suggestions will be welcome, and will be considered within their power, however. Susan Wagner Susan Wagner, who was elected president of the Athletic Association, anticipates the greatest change in the upcoming year to be in the field of intramurals. "Basically, we're going to try to get more people involved," Susan said. Susan is interested in involving students who want to play solely for enjoyment, rather than athletes. Susan would also like to see a broadening in the field of recreational activities. She specifically mentioned displays in such fields as arts and crafts. This would also include a wider variety of tournaments, such as a bridge tournament. "These are things which, while not actually sports, can be considered part of the overall recreational program of the students,' Susan said.
Richmond Alumni Chapter Brings In '7500 For LC Approximately $7500 was pledged to the Alumni Association during the phoneathon, conducted by the Richmond Alumni Chapter, from November 26-29. Students administration, and faculty members participated in it. For the most part, the alumni called were those who had not contributed to the Alumni Association this year. The principal areas to which calls were placed were Richmond, Tidewater, Northern Va., Baltimore, Raleigh and Greensboro. Aside from the $7500 in pledges, 150 pledged but did not give an amount. This is the first time Longwood has conducted anything of this type. Several colleges in the state, including Hampden-Sydney
and Randolph-Macon Men's College, have done it in the past, however. "In effect, we have been soliciting people all year through the mail," said Mr. John Mitchell, director of public relations. "But this has a more personal touch." When asked to comment on the phoneathon, Mr. Mitchell said â€˘'It was a real interesting experience". "We got to talk to a lot of people." Mr. Mitchell considered the program "highly successful." I would imagine we would do it again," he said. Whether or not it is done depends largely 00 whether anouther alumni chaj will be interested in conducting one.
Rosa Meyers, president of the V .W.C.A., hopes to see a continual growth of her organization. She would also like to better communications between it and other organizations on campus. Religious Emphasis Week will also include new speakers and groups this year. In other elections, officers for the coming year will be: Sarah Sniithey, vice-chairman of Legislative Board; Judy Rainer, recording secretary of Legislative Board; Betty Ridgeway, corresponding secretary of Legislative Board; and Ann Summerville, treasurer of Legislative Board. New Judicial Board officers are: Pat Saunders, vice-chairKaren Grubb man; and Hachael Jolly, secretary.

As the newly elected chairman of the Student Union, Patti Dunn has three major goals. The first is to have more people become involved in it by going to the meetings and participating in the activities. She encourages those students who do not have the time to serve on committees to let their opinions be known to those who are serving. Patti also plans a campus survey on student desires and opinions on activities to aid those in charge of planning activities. She hopes to develop a list of the necessary steps to be taken.
Longwood Women United Forms For 'Rights Of Women' "What we hope to do is act as a liaison between the students and the student government," said Sara F. Savage, speaking about LONGWOOD WOMEN UNITED. Recently approved by Legislative Board and the administration, LONGWOOD WOMEN UNITED is an organization to which all Longwood students are invited to be members. While Sara said that the organization's birth was the result of many people's ideas, the constitution was written by Donna Davis, Carla Sleight and herself. The constitution of LONGWOOD WOMEN UNITED states that "the purpose of this organization shall be to uphold the rights of women." It "shall strive to establish a spirit of unity and awareness among the students of Longwood College by incorporating into the activities of Longwood a realization of women's rights."
"We have great future plans," Sara said. Some of the group's anticipated activities include securing speakers, Incorporating a class on the history of women's rights into the Experimental College, polling the student body on various issues of concern and providing Interesting films and reading material. LONGWOOD WOMEN UNITED will be headed by an elected Advisory Committee composed of the Head Coordinator, Secretary, Treasurer and Activities Director. An advisor will \>a electeda( a later date. The first meeting ol LONGWOOD WOMEN UNITED will be held Thursday, January 24, at 7:00 p.m. in the Gold Room. This meeting will be for organizational purposes. Further inquiries into any aspect of the organization should be directed to Sara at 223-8300 or Carla and Donna at 302-8317.

The Last Who -Rah (Rah) The last editorial under an outgoing editor has traditionally been the time for reflection and commendation and SO this shall be It's been a year of marked changes and improvements in a number of areas. But that's not to say there isn't a long way to go yet. For that reason I don't simply want to recount the 'glorious past', but to take a look toward the immediate future - and a very important future it will be Of the many campus organizations that affect students directly, none is so important as the Student Union. Under Jean Dunavant's direction this year, the Union has tfrown from an organization of greai potential to a fully functioning and far-reaching organization that indeed offers above all others 'something for everyone.' Judging from the attendance at some events, the student body has apparently not yet fully realized how much the Union offers - but it's also quite apparent that more people than ever are taking advantage of the wide variety of programs the Union has Let's hope it continues to move as strongly in the future, for morejjnan anything else, the Union makes 'life at Longwtfod' a much more enjoyable experience. Caught in the yearly bind of handbook changes, we heard little from Residence Board until recently. However, Debbie Waldron and her board are to be commended for the strong steps they recently took to institute a key system as opposed to curfews and signing in and out. If it receives final approval the system will not only serve to enhance student life and responsibility, but will certainly serve to make Longwood more attractive to the prospective student. In a traditionally minded society perhaps the word 'revolutionary' is a poor choice - the key system is just that, however, and is a 'revolution' long overdue and certainly welcome. Legislative Board has also taken a firm hold on some fledgling projects - particularly the Swap Shop and Help Out - and turned them into fully operative and beneficial activities. While this has hardly been the year of the controversy for the Board, they have handled their duties with responsibility and dedication. Were we to wish for anything more, however, it would be a far more concerted and hard-nosed effort on the part of the members of Legislative Board to reach the members of the student body - not simply with news of what the Board is doing, not simply with opportunities for committee membership, not simply with an OK for a beer hash at the Longwood cabin, but with consistent and far-reaching attempts to find out what the average Longwood student is concerned about in relation to the College and to work on all areas brought to the Board's attention. While I realize this is no easy goal, it is the duty of Legislative Board - and it is imperative that the Board now take strong steps in this direction as. for instance, Residence Board is projecting for the coming year. There are many other organizations such as the 'Y', the AA, Judicial Board, and committees, particularly the Artist Series, which also deserve commendation. Space does not allow for even a partial listing of their accomplishments, but I think that they are obvious to all of us, and the many individuals taking part in these organizations who have given freely of their time, effort, abilities, and dedication deserve the highest of praise. Last but not least, I'd like to thank the group of people who have worked so closely with me on THE ROTUNDA staff this year. Never before have I had the pleasure - indeed, the honor - of association with so hard-working and dependable a groupof individuals - qualities that are imperative in the production of a college newspaper. A new ROTUNDA editor and a new student government are about to take office. It is my sincre hope that through them the coining yen brings additional -positive change' to help bring Longwood that much closer to fulfilling its potential as the College it can and should be DAB EDITOR Debbie Bastek

Message From The President Dear Students: The first semester is ending, exams are upon us, and I know that each of you is looking forward to a very pleasant break from studying during the Christmas vaction. The transition to the early-opening calendar has gone well for the College as a whole, and I hope it will prove beneficial to each of you. The cooperation and loyalty of the students at Longwood is a source of great pride to me personally, as I am sure it is to the other administrators and faculty of the College. In the matter of the current energy conservation program, you have again displayed this spirit of cooperation which is the most important factor in enabling the College to carry this program through successfully. We have received several requests from parents to change the Sunday residence hall opening following the Christmas and New Year vacation due to the gasoline shortage and, in particular, to the closing of fillingstations on Sunday. For this reason, our residence halls will be opennto receive students at 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 12. The evening meal on that day will be served at 5:15 p.m., and meals will be provided at the regular times on Sunday, January 13, for those students who find it necessary to return on Saturday. The traditional candles and other decorations of the season may be missing this year, but the celebration of Christmas is, after all, a matter of the heart and spirit. As you leave the campus to spend the holidays with your families and friends, I hope you will carry the true spirit of Christmas, which shines brighter than any candle, with you. Sincerely, Henry I. Willett, Jr.
Chi Balls And Campus Eight Balls To the Editor: I left the dining hall early tonight (December 3) and, deciding to gaze at the newly decorated tree, I reached the Rotunda and stopped SHORT. I suddenly saw what appeared to be the process
of complete destruction which I ruefully recognized as a contest to seize the Chi Christmas balls. Several girls had climbed the tree, while others were jabbing long sticks at it, shaking it, and jerking it, all to capture those few special balls. Other balls were falling, large numbers of them, amidst icicles, tinsel, and other decorations. The tree swayed as balls feU and broke, remnants of the once magnificent tree. All for the conquest of a few Chi balls. Perhaps I can understand the excitement for Chi banners, longdesired possessions of Longwood traditionalists, but a Chi ball? It was not a display of school spirit or Longwood tradition that I witnessed, but a destructive and passionate struggle to succeed. Chi was not the aim, nor Chi's spirit the means, but an effort to defeat one's fellow man. Did Chi think to consider the possible ruination of the tree, common in securing the banner, when they placed Christmas balls upon it? Whatever, it was disgusting. I stood infuriated and helpless, watching until I grew sick and turned away. Teresa Altizer Editor's Note: While the following letter explains the end of the placing of Chi balls on the Rotunda Christmas tree, the incident should not be considered a dead issue. Perhaps the people who are willing to sacrifice their necks - and a tree which belongs to the ENTIRE college community - for the possession of a Chi ball might want to take another look at what Chi is supposed to stand for. One can claim to be a believer in school spirit all she wants, but when college "women" are only too happy to reduce themselves to the asinine behavior indicative of the maturity of a 12-year-old, the true "school spirit" professed becomes questionable. I hope the guilty parties concerned stop to think about not only what they have done, but the performance they put on for the rest of the student body - displaying "spirit" in such a manner is a source of embarrassment to those who understand the mean-
ing of the word, and a source of disgust and pity for the rest of the student body who are supposed to share this same "spirit."
And The End Of A Tradition To the Editor: Several years ago Chi began the custom of donating tree balls as a contribution toward the decorating of the large tree in the Rotunda during the Christmas season. In the past these ornaments have ultimately disappeared almost as mysteriously as they contrived their way upon the tree. This vanishing was expected to eventually take place but with hopes that the decorations would remain for a while in order to serve their purpose for at least a short period of time. Apparently these objects, intended to beautify, disappeared this year in less than two and one half hours after they were placed upon the tree. It is also regretful that the annihilating manner in which they were dismantled by a few has caused the termination of such a gesture as it has obviously been turned into something else other than what was originally intended.
Here We Go Again Dear Madam Editor, The Sisters of the Pentor is a new secret organization recently formed on campus. It is our aim to foster academic excellence and to enhance the quality of life at Longwood College. Our symbol is the Roman numeral five and the infinity sign, signifying our size and duration. Naturally, the sign for "womanhood" will be included in the symbol. This will be the last time we formally acknowledge our existance. Sincerely, Sisters of the Pentor

Who's Who For 1973 Named
Jessie Reter By SUSAN WOOLDRIDGE Twenty-four seniors were recognized by Dr. Willett last Wednesday night as having been chosen to the nationally recognized Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges. This honor is extended annually to a group of seniors nominated by a committee made up of Department Chairmen, Senior members of last year's Chi, and student government sponsors. They are selected by a committee composed of the President of the College, Dean of the College, Dean of Students, Director
Donna Hicks of Special Services, and the president of the junior class. Each girl is nominated on the basis of academic standing (at least a 2.5 average), service to the college community, participation and leadership abilities, and extracurricular activities. One of the advantages of Who's Who is that, with the assistance of educational and business consultants, a student placement service which provides employment contracts for graduating students and prospective employers is maintained.

Commentary By Barbera Radford
Faculty Evaluation: The Students Choice Actually, this commentary started one day after lunch, listening to people complain about the poor teaching methods shared by what seemed to be the entire teaching faculty. Example: A principle of discipline in the classroom Is to reprimand a student quietly and only the student who has broken the rule. Case: A student walked into the room with a coke in her liand. The rule is not to have food and drinks in class. The professor yelled (literally) at the student, tie lectured the entire class for several minutes for their "inconsiderateness.' This professor was of all tilings, an education professor teaching the principles of education. While this student was excitedly discussing the event another asked "Does this go on all over the school?" We all agreed it did. "Why doesn't somebody do sointhing about it?" General consensus was again that the students couldn't because faculty didn't listen to students, and the administration didn't know it went on. This reporter slipped out and trotted down to Dr. Carolyn Wells, Associate Dean of the College's office. She seemed surprised to find that the students felt that way. She asked what the solution to the problem could be. The solution seemed to be obvious: the professor should be observed in the classroom. Maybe faults a professor can't see in himself could be caught if someone else watched him teach. Dr. Wells informed the reporter tliat several departments did observe their professors in the classroom. She suggested some departments to visit, and the great investigation was on. Dr. Shirley O'Neil a professor of the Physical Education Department said
as Chairman she continually visited various members of the department. How much was "hard to say" but she tried to visit each member of the department at least four times a year. How often she visited depended on how easy it was for her to get in and out of the class without being conspicuous. "In the gymnasium it's relatively easy without disturbing the class, but generally I ask the professor before observing a class in a room." Dr. O'Neil generally gives the teacher notice before going to the class, but the notice could vary from tliat morning to the class period before. She also spends more time with a new faculty member than with a more established one. The evaluation she gets from these observations are informal, "I don't write things down, but feel I can question the professor at the end of the class." Dr. Wells said of the physical education departments' evaluation, "It's certainly not the only one on campus, but it is one of the best." The English department evaluated their professors as the entire college does. Two years ago the faculty adopted an evaluation form for every professor. The department chairman fills out one form on each faculty member, and each professor fills out a form on himself. From there the departments vary in how they handle the forms. Soon departments discuss the form between each faculty member and chairman, and others just send them to the academic deans department. In the English department, Dr. William Frank, the chairman, invited any professor who would like to to discuss the form with him. Dr. Frank said time kept him from observing the professors,
that coupled with the fact that is unethical to drop into a professor's class unexpectedly can limit observation of a new department member to once a year. He did say that if there were a continuing problem withaparticular class Dr. Frank would sit in on that class several days in a row. Tenured members of the English department are never observed. Dr. Frank said he had been invited to sit in on classes, but he didn't really see any need. "Unless I had a reason for questioning a tenured member I'd have no reason for sitting in on his classes." Education is one of the most important majors on this campus, due to the sheer numbers of students who will be teaching. Dr. Charles H. Patterson, chairman of the department of education and psychology, said time prevented him from observing his department members. He has 27 professors in that department, and he "can't do it." He admitted however that he ought to see them all more than once a year. The ideal situation would be to observe every professor's classes several times each. But, because the ideal was unachievable he settled for not doing it at all. The art department consists for the most part of studio courses, Miss Barbara Bishop chairman of the department said. There are only two lecture courses, art history and art education which she tries to observe at least once annually. Miss Bishop emphasized that the art department is set up on a more informal basis than the other departments on campus, and most of her evaluation comes from conversations on course content and the interchange of ideas among department mem-
bers. She also receives course outlines from each teacher and when he changes his plans he gives her the changes. Miss Bishop said it was as hard to evaluate the teacher on how well she is performing because one can't use the students display of work as a measurement. "I don't use the product as the ultimate in evaluation, but also see how the teacher handles problems in the process." Art is difficult to grade because it is so subjective, but Miss Bishop said, "we want our students to have positive experiences in this department." Besides observations professors are evaluated annually by the form set up by the faculty two years ago. Each department was free to revamp the form to make it more applicable to their own field of study. The other mode of faculty evaluation is through student evaluation forms turned in at the end of the class. When Miss Bishop goes into a class she watches to see how the teacher handles problems students encounter in their work, and the "dialogue between student and teacher." Miss Bishop summarized her problem by saying rapport between teacher and student is empasized in the art department because "individualized instruction is very important here." Student evaluations also play a part in the evaluation of the professor. Miss Bishop, chairman of the art department, said if she received a set of negative evaluations of a professor she would feel she had a problem on her hands and would be obligated to discuss the course with the professor in question. All the chairman expressed a desire for students to be perfertly honest on their student evaluations at the end of a course.
Miss Bishop said, "I wish students would say what they have on their mind, because teachers have to when they grade the student." Evaluating the faculty at best is a difficult job. Great care needs to be taken not to interfere with the professor's academic freedom, which Dr. Blackwell Dean of the College defined as "the instructor's right to promulgate any idea relevent to the subject matter regardless of how controversial it may be." There will be complaints. Apparently the department chairman will not have the time to observe the professor in his class, so it is up to the student. The academic deans are always willing to listen to problems students may be having with a professor. They may not act on the complaints as quickly as students would prefer (like in the same semester the complaint was made) but they do seem to get to the problem eventually. They will never be able to help solve a problem if they aren't told â€˘ about it. It boils down to this. If a student doesn't like the way a professor teaches, grades or acts, she has to be the one to complain. She can talk to the department chairman, the deans, the professor - but talking to her roommate will do no good. The student has a right to good teaching in every subject but until she demands it few people are going to give it to her.
