New Policies , Pass-Fail System Discussed At Press Conference Dr. Henry I. Willett opened his press conference last Thursday by commenting favorably on substantial savings in energy on campus. In recent months there have been savings of $2700 on electricity alone on the basis of five residence halls. 'The students deserve a large amount of the credit," he said. He went on to say that as of March 1 the cabin will be open for use and that the lights on the tennis courts will be turned on again at night. Concerning the reopening of the residence halls after return from

P.E.. Building Threatened By Governor's Proposal Construction of Longwood's proposed physical education building is threatened by a recommendation, made by Governor Mills E. Godwin, to the General Assembly, to defer all major state financed construction projects, including the physical education building. The budget, however, still includes money for the minor construction needed at Longwood. This includes replacing the brick structure around Barlow Field, and repairing the balustrades on the roof of the Rotunda. The recomended deferral was made in order to provide more money to cushion the state against inflation, as well as to provide a raise in salaries for state employees. The proposed budget submitted by Governor Holton just before he left office provided no money for salary increases for faculty members at state-supported colleges, according to Dean Blackwell. However, because of the rapid rise in the cost of living, Governor Godwin's proposed budget allows for a 4.8% increase in the salaries of faculty members. A percentage of the money originally proposed for construction will also be used to provide funds for the inflated cost of fuel, under Governor Godwin's recommendation. "At Longwood, for example, we estimate that our cost in fuel oil and coal will increase by $100,000 over the budget," said Dean Blackwell. The proposed budget has also set aside a reserve to be used to meet other needs, such as a possible decline in revenue, or through additional expenses. "Governor Godwin has submitted a priority listing of capital appropriations, in case the General Assembly doesn't accept the recomended changes," said Dean BlackwelL "Our physical education building is high among the (Continued on Page 8)

Spring vacation, Dr. Willett stated that, as before, the residence halls will be opened on Saturday, March 23, so that students who may have difficulty traveling on Sunday can return to campus a day earlier. The dining hall, however, will not be open for meals until Sunday, March 24, because the contract that Slater Services has with the CoUege does not include meals on that particular Saturday, and the budget is too tight right now to be able to add it. Because of this, students must make their own arrangement for meals if they return on Saturday. On the topic of appropriations and funding for next year, Dr. Willett said that one of the priorities for funds next year will go to increases in salaries for members of the faculty. Also on the list of priorities sent to the appropriations committee are plans for Longwood's new physical education building. "It is right at the top of the list in terms of appropriations for new structures," said Dr. Willett. Dr. Willett went on to say that no one is sure of the legislature's decisions on funding for next year, but because of rising food, fuel, and related costs, there will be a substantial fee increase for the 1974-75 session. Dr. Willett also mentioned that both Residence Board and Judicial Board are currently working on proposed changes. Judicial Board is going through a selfstudy of procedures. Residence Board proposals on a new SelfRegulatory system and a new Sign-In/Out procedure have been

passed by both Residence and Legislative Boards. Dr. Willett and his staff were still reviewing the proposals last week and Dr. Willett expected to be able to make some statement earlier this week. A question was asked concerning why a key system wasn't set up so that students wouldn't have to go to the campus police to be let into the residence halls after curfew, as opposed to the current Self-Regulatory proposal Dr. Willett answered that he has serious reservations about the efficiency of any type of key system and that the proposed plan would be given a try first. An important factor is that the Campus Police are in favor of the new proposal and think it is worth a try. Grace Ann Overton, Chairman of Legislative Board, discussed upcoming Student Government to sign up for student commitDay on February 28. On that day, tees.

This system is an option available to good students whereby they would take a certain course and either pass or fail that course. A student would pass the course if she got an A, B, or C, and fail the course if she got a D or F, No quality points would be given or taken away from the student's average. Dr. Willett mentioned that if students would sign letters that they wrote to the editor of the ROTUNDA or signed suggestions placed in the suggestion IMIX, "they would get a faster answer and a far more responsive answer than if they did not sign their letters."

All this will, according to Grace Anne, "build a better understanding of how the students function with the faculty." If at the end of the day, a student will have learned something to "make her a better leader for the school it would be worth it."

Sisterhood- Dream Or Reality'/ There seems to be an Increasing concernover the lack of black studies offered at Longwood. More awl more, people are becoming aware of the fact that the black man (and woman) has made significanl contributions to the American heritage. And, those of us who are open-minded enough to be objective about the situation realize that we. as prospective teachers, must be educated concerning these contributions if we are to adequately educate OUR future pupils. It is the opinion of some that prospects for black literature courses in the near future are bright Should these opinions prove true, the new courses will mean a significant improvement in Longwood's curriculum. It will also be one step towards the ultimate goal - real sisterhood. Unfortunately, the courses will be only ONE step, however. There are problems that cannot bo overcome by any course changes, by any court rulings, or by the HEW. These are problems which exist n one's mind, which are found not only here at Longwood, but, unfortunately, all over the country. Prejudice is far too common on this campus, however. It is amazing that supposedly intelligent people could be so ignorant concerning their fellow human beings - could continue to stereotype members of a different, race - despite numerous sociology and psychology classes that teach that these stereotypes hold no truth. Many students are shockingly, openly biased. They have no qualms abour razzing another white student who sits with black friends at lunch or in the snack bar. They self-righteously cling to their "fine old Virginia backgrounds" and thank God that they are too much of a lady to behave in such a manner. And, there are more subtle means of discrimination, by students who profess to be open-minded. Many students, unfortunately attend the'white'Baptist Church - thereby silently upholding its closeddoor policy towards blacks. White students are aware that black culture is virtually ignored on campus, but make no effort to help remedy the situation. And, worst of all, the bold-faced prejudice of their peers is tolerated, either through fear of becoming an outcast, or apathy. Prince Edward County has a reputation for racial bias If this is ever to be erased, if the deplorable situation in the schools and some of the churches is to be better, Longwood must set the example. Indeed, if true harmony and equal opportunity is ever to exist in America, it is going to be brought about by Longwood students and their peers on campuses across the nation. And it will have to begin right here, for if fears and misconceptions arc not erased now, when will they ever be? As stated earlier, this cannot occur through any law which is passed, or even through any speech made. It can only happen when black and white students stop thinking of each other as being black and white - and start thinking of them simply as fellow students. - JANE -

THE UOTUNIA Established



Nader Versus Nuclear Energy There are numerous errors and subjective opinions in Ralph Nader's unjustified criticism on nuclear energy in his address. Nader first used the hypothetical failure of a reactor cooling operation as the ground of his controversial issues. However, the probability of the loss o' coolant accident is small. According to the result of a reactor safety study, which involved nearly two years (1972 and 73) and a cost of two million dollars, the odds on a major catastrophe at a nuclear power plant is once in one billion to once in ten billion years of a given reactor. Even with the one thousand reactors expected to be operating by the end of this century, it would be at least one thousand years before any given reactor might be expected to have such an accident. The figures used by Nader to support his statement with regard to the number of casualties resulted from a catastrophic accident are obsolete. His statement is based on a report completed some fifteen years ago. This report assumed that a power reactor would have been built at the center of a city of one hundred thousand people. In fact, no power reactor has been or will be built in such location. Nader's statement creates wrong impression in the minds of audiences. The geologic fault in Louisa County, where VEPCO is now building four reactors, is now considered to be no danger after an extensive investigation conducted by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. Nader simply used an older story that he finds will support the conclusions he wishes to reach. The danger of transporting radioactive materials and of the disposal of radioactive waste was exaggerated by Nader. Although there have been some transportation accidents, in no case has there been a release of radioactivity to the environment, in amounts large enough to result in an over-exposure of the public. At the present time, more than ninety percent of the radioactive materials transported in land is for medical use. The radioactive waste from nuclear plants must first have been solidified before being shipped for underground storage. The waste so buried will no longer be in the liquid form which Nader and some people think. It is commonly recognized that

all activities of man involve some risk of harm to people, but has been that risks can be minimized and more than compenstated for by attendant benefits. After all, nuclear power is the cleanest safest, and most reliable form of energy for today and the near future. Joseph Law

Presentation Of Dr. Flynn's abundance of their rich bloom. Perhaps the best of the "genre" series is one entitled "Trattoria Still Life," a pyramid of yellow poppers topped by one tomato, set upon an immaculate cloth and accompanied by two turned down wine glasses. This instinctive arrangement by some anonymous Italian waiter, was fully appreciated and captured by Dr. Flynn. All the work shows an eye trained to value composition, form and color. The exhibition, then, encompasses both nature, and the artifice of man. The viewer may well go away carrying the image of a single swan, poised on a still, dark lake. Her camera explores the several textures of his plumage, including a lone feather floating apart. His solitary elegance recalls the economy and beauty of the Japanese Haiku. This photograph is entitled "Serenity." Exhibit hours are 8-.30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The public is cordially invited.

Sickness Plagues Cast Play Opens On Feb. 27 By KAREN FOSTER The Department of Speech and Dramatic Arts and Longwood Players upcoming production of "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" should, according to director, Mr. Douglas Young, be retitled "The Effects of Pneumonia and Upper Respiratory Ailments on Actors Playing in Man-in-theMoon Marigolds," All three of the major characters (three-fifths of the cast) have suffered some type of illness during "Marigolds" rehearsal. Susan Bower, as the younger daughter, Tillie, has been absent from rehearsal for "about two weeks," Mr. Young reported, but "I have no doubts she'll be able to catch up.' "I found it curious that a person with a 103 degree tempera-

ture should be advised to take a cold shower," Mr. Young mused. "I was told this is what the infirmary advised." Janet Baker, as the mother, Beatrice and Byrd Quinlivin as elder daughter, Ruth, also missed rehearsals due to sickness. The director, however, is optimistic: "All the cast members are expected to be back for rehearsal this week.' 'There are some doubts as to whether the marigolds will be ready," Mr. Young continued. "We need twelve pots of marigolds," two of them identical. If the problem cannot be resolved, the flowers will be made or a florist will be consulted. The music for ' Marigolds" will be recorded by a band, composed of Hampden-Sydney stu(Continued an Page 7)

The Art Of Printmaking Emphasized In Three Part Program In Bedford Gerald Donato, nationally known printmaker, will conduct a three-part program on printmaking in Bedford Building, on February 21 and 22. Sponsored by the Central Chapter of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, which is one of Virginia's 30 affiliated arts organizations, the program will feature a slide-lecture, demonstration and workshop. The lecture at 7:30 on February 21 at Bedford Building, Room 217, will explain the stepby-step process in three major print media: lithography, silkscreen and etching. Mr. Donato will briefly discuss printmaking's history, as well as some current trends in the graphic arts relating to photography, computers and Xerox. "During a trip to Europe this past summer, I took many slides of the famous print workshops in Paris and plan to show them during the program, ' Donato said. Donato will actually print a lithograph from a photo-aluminum plate, either before or after his slide talk. In his workshop on February 22 at 9 a.m. to 12 noon at Bedford Building, Room 217, students and Central Chapter members will be able to print their own lithographs. Participants must be limited to 20 persons; those

Exhibit - Feb. 18 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; March 15 Elisabeth L. Flynn, Associate Professor of Art at Longwood, presents an exhibition of varied photographs in the Bedford Building Gallery beginning Tuesday, February 18, and running through March 15. The photographs, shot both in color and in black and white, reveal her interest in architecture, ranging from the 6th century tomboof Theodoric in Ravenna, a 12th century church, St. Cataldo, in Palermo, the Temple of Poseidon at Paestum, through' German Baroque and Roccoco. In contrast to the weathered textures of ancient stone, she also shoots the sweeping, clean lines of contemporary steel and glass (First National Bank of Chicago) and the pavilions housing the '72 Olympics. Another group of photos from Dr. Flynn's exhibition permit a more intimate glimpse of life: Sicilian donkey carts, painted in uninhibited folk art style; beer steins raised to thirsty mouths; a massed snarl of chain left heaped beside a red fireplug; venders selling vegetables; and a series of flowers caught in the


wishing to sign up may call 392-9359 before February 19 (392-3045 before February 18). Donato, Assistant Professor of Painting and Printmaking at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, lias an impressive exhibition record as well as a concern for making the involved printmaking processes understandable to people. As a high school student, he attended the Art Institute of Chicago Museum School, and was graduated from Northern Illinois University with a B. S. and a M. A. in education. He received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University ofWisconsin and has been at VCU since 1967. At the Southeastern College Art Conference in Atlanta last spring, Donato was selected moderator of the Printmaking Panel. Recently his work was exhibited at the International Print Exhibition, sponsored by the Philadelphia Print Club, and at the National Print Exhibition, sponsored by the Society of American Graphic artists in New York. His exhibition awards and honors have been many, including those at the Fifth and Sixth Annual James River Juried Art Exhibit, Mariner's Museum; the 1971 Virginia Artists Biennial, the Virginia Museum; the Albion College Invitational in Michigan; and the Irene Leach Memorial Exhibition in Norfolk. His work has been exhibited in selected shows in 13 states. Donato received a special grant in 1972 from the VCU School of the Arts to develop video tape demonstrations on printmaking as teaching aids in the classroom. His program in Farmville is made possible by a National Endowment for the Arts grant from state allotted funds to the Virginia Museum. His lecture on February 21 is open to the public and offers an excellent opportunity for laymen to learn about printmaking. - Please call I. B.

Old Dominion University-Old Dominion University's Summer Session has been expanded this year and will include five sessions offering a total of 634 class sections. Summer session class schedules will be available for distribution by April 1. Tuition cost is $20 per credit hour for graduate and undergraduate students, both in-state and out-of-state, and they are subject to minor change. Richmond - A commission is studying whether or not Radford College should merge with Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Del. Archibald A. Campbell urged his colleagues from the House of Delegates Thursday to approve such a commission. The merger of Radford and Tech was advised by Shaner, who was hired to advise the commission on higher education. According to a study made by Dr. Katz, a director of research for human development and educational policy at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, great changes have taken place in the last decade because of coeducational living on campus. According to the report, coeducational life has erased the double standard. Nearly all college students consider sexual intercourse before marriage permissible not only for males, but also for females according to the recent surveys.

Queen Victoria, Nathan Hale Attend Party Caesar, Nathan Hale, and an African warrior were a few of the guests present at a rather unique Valentine's Day party at the home management house on February 12. The party was given as part of a group assignment for students taking the Home Economics Management Course. The course requires that students live in and manage the house for seven weeks. Students enrolled in the course are: Cindy Steele, Mary Stuckey, Ellen Riley, Linda Webber, Kathryn Wood, Wanda Bailey, Jackie Poore, and Janice Campbell. The party was, obviously a costume party. Some of the other guests included Dr. Willett (tennis champion), a leopard (Miss Maureen Blackenberger, Instructor of Home Economics), a farmer (Mr. Robert Webber, assistant professor of Mathematics), a hillbilly (Miss Susan Taverner, Instructor of Foreign Languages), a school teacher (Mrs. Osborn, assistant professor of home economics), Bobby Riggs (Mr. Kidder, assistant professor of mathematics), and Queen Victoria (Nell Griffin, chairman of the Home Economics Department. The Three Musketeers were also present, and serving as waiters. The party was a quiet one, as might be expected with such a motley assortment of people from all periods of history attending. The guests mingled and chatted with one another, creating such combinations as Caesar, Queen Victoria, and Natlian Hale making light conversation over punch and home-made mints.

Dr. Webber - Professor Of Mathematics Presented A Lecture On February 13 Dr. Robert P. Webber, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, gave a lecture in Wygal Auditorium on Wednesday, February 13. The lecture, entitled SEMIGROUPS DETERMINED BY MATRIX NORMS OR WHAT IS MATHEMATICAL RESEARCH?, was the third lecture of the Longwood College Colloquium Faculty Lecture Series. Dr. Webber began the lecture by stating that to most people the study of mathematics is a mystery. He explained that this was due mainly to the vocabulary employed in the field of math and the type of math, mainly arithmetic and algebra, to which most people are exposed. The methods used in public schools for teaching math, what he called "the classical cookbook approach to mathematics* , are also a factor. He, then, explained the type of research that he is engaged in. This concerns semigroups and matrix norms. Dr. Webber gave some history on these subjects and defined them. His lecture was based on the answers to four questions which he posed: "What is a matrix?", "What is the combination (of the matrix)?* , 'What are properties of semigroups of matrices?'', and "Who cares?". At one point in the lecture, Dr. Webber mentioned that the

Some of the highlights of the past semester were the election of Andy Moore (H-S) as a state council member, the Christmas Program on December 5; and the annual Christmas Party with VMI on December 8. The BSU Executive Council for the upcoming year includes the following: President-Glenn Jefferson, a student at HampdenSydney; Outreach Chairman Froggy Walker, a student at Ham pden-Sydney; Upperclassman Outreach for Hampden-Sydney â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ed Conner; Freshman Outreach for Hampden-Sydney and newsletter editor - Mike Rowland; Freshman Outreach for LCRegina Quisenberry; Revival Team - Andy Moore (H-S); Missions Chairman - Katie Loope; Girls' Club- Brenda Bell; Summer Missions Offering - Bobbi Turner; Holly Manor - Janice Wood; Choir - Melanie Taylor; Music and Devotional Week EndLinda Tomlin; Program Chairman and Wednesday Meetings Annette Acker; Socials - Carol France and Brenda Latimer; Devotions - Debbie Boetther; Study Groups- CathyKootz;Communications Chairman - Mary Deel; Center Lock-Up - Malinda Atkins.

theory on which part of his work was based on was first published in 1926 but was not used until the 1950's when another man published a work on the same subject simply because the first paper was unreadable. To the question'Who cares?', Dr. Webber said there were two schools of thought. One said that there is no need to justify theoretical mathematical research because it is learning just to be learning and it doesn't necessarily have to have any practical purpose. The other school feels that math is not worth learning unless it can be put to some practical purpose. Several of the math majors present at the lecture declined to comment officially, but they felt that the lecture was interesting, informative, and intelligible even though it was concerned

with a good deal of mathematical theory. What did someone who is not involved in the math field think of the lecture. Mr. L. Marshall Hall, Jr., an Associate Professor of History, said, "I though Dr. Webber was a very good speaker. He doesn't have to stay tied to notes and he is very effervescent. He's fun to listen to . He's a scholar doing what scholars are supposed to do, which is making a contribution to knowledge. The subject matter was quite difficult for the laymen, but I think Dr. Webber did his best to make it as intelligible for a general audience as possible without talking down to them. It fulfills the purpose of the program in giving the faculty and students an idea of what's going on outside the classroom. I think it was very good."

New Budget For Colleges Increase In Student Aid A proposal by President Nixon suggests that nearly $9 billion of the federal budget be spent on college aid and research. This budget focuses on in creased student aid. About $6.6 billion is allotted for programs assisting students and colleges with another $2.3 billion going towards college - based research and development programs. Synonymous with this, substantial cuts are being sought by the administration to sustain program and school training for health professionals. The amount the Administration hopes to use in supporting stu dents and these health schools is a decline from this year's $567 million to $369 million in 1975. This new budget emphasizes aid to students, despite an energetic debate discussing whether aid should be given to students or institutions. For this reason, there is a proposal that most of the higher education funds in the Office of Education go to the basic grant programs. About 1.6 million students would receive grants upto$l,400 with President Nixon's proposal for $1.3 billion to finance the program. President Nixon asserts that with work-study and loans from private lenders, the grants program will be sufficient for students along with personal, local, and state resources. Aiding minority students, the Office of Education suggests for their budget $10.8 million for cooperative education $70,3 million for programs aiding disadvantaged high school students so they may remain in college, and $120 million for developing institutions. The budget asks for $10 million for foreign language and area

study centers, a decrease of about $3 million from what was used last year. The president seeks an elimination of aid for the buildup of college library assets which support land-grant colleges. Congress has previously rejected attempts for stopping aid to land-grant colleges. This plan, known as the Bank Lead-Jones Act, is not all the Administration is working against. They also are planning legislation to repeal the second Morrill Act, a permanent land-grant program.

Suffered First Loss To A Virginia Team

The Last Home Game For LC Basketball Team-Defeated VCU By LYNNE JOHNSON Longwood played it's last home game of the season Tuesday night and captured a 68-39 victory over Virginia Commonwealth University. This was the last home game for seniors Debbie Carneal, Bee Johnson, Nanette Fisher, Nancy Richey and Lucy Sale. First quarter VCU limited Longwood to only 9 points as they scored 13 points. Second quarter LC's offense really got going as they scored 26 points while limiting VCU to only 12 and took a 35-25 lead at the half. Second half LC's tight defense squelched VCU's offense allowing them only 4 points to their 13 the third quarter and 10 to their 20 in the fourth. Overall Longwood played their best team game of the season. Nanette Fisher, Diane Minor, Gay Harrington and Debbie Carneal were in double figures with 17,12, 10, and 10 points respectively. Nanette Fisher was leading rebounder with 19 and Lucy Sale picked off nine. There was no Junior Varsity game because VCU does not have one. This weekend L.

L.C. Basketball Team Played Madison By LYNNE JOHNSON Despite the snow Longwood traveled to Harrisonburg and played Madison College. They were scheduled toplayFrostburg College from Maryland on Friday but those games were cancelled because of the snow. Longwood played sluggishly the first three quarters, then came alive the fourth quarter but not enough to win and suffered a 5045 loss to undefeated Madison College. This was Longwood's first loss to a Virginia team. Madison outplayed Longwood the first three quarters and outscored LC 13-7, 15-12 and 15-8. The defense was moving poorly giving Madison the opportunity to continually penetrate the middle

and make many high percentage shots. Going into the fourth quarter Longwood was trailing 4327. With the inspiration of a few choice words - hustle and determination - from the coach, Longwood exploded for 18 points while holding Madison to only seven points, still giving them a 50-45 victory over LC. First half Longwood shot 41% (7-17) from the floor and 32% (9-28) second half as compared to Madison's 37% (10-27) first half and 26% (8-31) second half.

My main concern is the play itself." The band idea originated last September during rehearsals for 'The Importance of Being Earnest" witti actors Jim Wiant (Alrnon) and Clark Lindsay (Dr. Chasuble). During rehearsal, M r. Young said, they played "Some low down blues which I liked but had no time to listen. Later Clark and I got together and worked out some themes,' Mr. Young continued.

THE ROTUNDA still needs reporters, typists

Freshman Production Scheduled For Presentation On March 7 By ANITA RIVARD Plans are being finalized and practice sessions have begun for this year's Freshman Production. The Class of'77 will present their program to the College on March 7 in Jarman Auditorium. The cast was selected on an individual basis on February 5 and 6. The Selection Committee consisted of Freshman Production Chairman, Mary Bruce Hazlegrove; Co-Chairmen Cathy Sterling and Karen Turner, and heads of the various crews. The key phrase for that evening, according to Kitty Wray, a member of that committee, was "Hot-dog it!" However, the Freshmen prefer to make no other comments at this time, except to say that this year's show will be different from any before. "This Freshman Production will be more professional than any in the past have been," says Mary Bruce, One advantage for the Class of '77 is the many drama majors and people with experience in this field who have volunteered their help. The crew chiefs are: Emily Burgwyn - set; Ann Saunders lights; Trisa Howland - stage manager; Lori Malone - props; Karen Overman - costumes; Kim Wheeless -sound; Susan Brinkley


- music; and Donna Brooks make-up. The script was written by Melody Fowler, Kitty Wray, and Jacqui Singleton. BarbEspey is in charge of publicity. Members of Freshman Commission will serve as usherettes. A great deal of organization has prevailed and much interest lias been shown by those involved. However, time has been a detrimental factor and exams and sorority rush interferred to a certain extent in the beginning. As of this week, however, it appears that everything is progressing as planned. Freshmen are reminded that there is still much work to be done, and anyone wishing to help out on any phase of the production may contact the respective crew chiefs.
