Such Fun."

Press Conference: booze and boys By MARTHA McCOTTER The first press conference of the 1976 year was held last week on Tuesday, Feb. 17. The Press conference was opened by Susann Smith 12:45 in the Gold Room of the Lankford Building. Ms. Smith briefly discussed Executive Committee business and reminded students of other legislative Board news, which included Student Government Week, The Student Government Forum, and Student Government Day. Dr. Willett began his remarks with announcing that the lights are now on at the tennis courts. Dr. Willet then called on Dr. Peele to comment on the heating situation in the dormitories. This came in response to a question asked as to the uncomfortable conditions in some dorms. Dr. Willett then discussed drinking alcoholic beverages on campus and emphasized the necessity of recognizing public places. At this point President Willett commented on drinking in sorority chapter rooms and said that this was under discussion. One student was concerned as to the legality of serving minors champagne during receptions on campus. Dr. Willett's response was that the "burden will be on the individual." After some discussion Dr. Willett moved on to coeducation. President Willett seemed rather confident that plans for coeducation are "progressing very, very well." He estimated that there will be forty to seventy-five resident males. Dr. Willett assured

students that homesteading, freshman housing, and other Ungwood housing traditions will continue. He again emphasized that IiOngwood will "adhere to one set of standards." This is to include housing and most importantly academic standards. Dr. Willett also commented that plans are being made to have reasonably good physical education facilities for male students. At this point, Dr. Willett called on Dean Swann to elaborate on the housing of male students. Dean Swann's opening comment was simply, "Housing is such fun." Ms. Swann announced that male students will be housed on first floor Tabb and on second floor Frazer. She emphasized that female students, who now live on those halls will be given priority over other students after homesteading. Dean Swann also mentioned that homesteading will take place March 1 and room draw on March 8. Dr. Willett returned to the podium and responded to questions concerning open house rules, the campus police situation as related to coeducation, and dorm regulations. Dr. Willett concluded his emphasis on coeducation by stating, "I don't think anything that is done for men will take away from what is done for women." There was some question concerning the Curry-Frazer parking lot. Dr. Willet suggested to Dr. Peele that the situation be looked into The Press Conference concluded with the students assured that Joan of Arc was being taken care of and would soon be returned. Dr. Willett, in response to a question from a student, commented that the incident which defaced the statue of I/Ongwood's Patron Saint was under investigation.

Interview With Longwood's Joan Of Arc

Just For The Sake Of Change It has been suggested that for this newspaper to become mediocre would be an improvement. Possibly so. Webster defines the term mediocre as "of

but

moderate excellence, ordinary." This doesn't appear to be such a terrible description, especially when one considers that the Rotunda is published every week during the school year by a staff of approximately twenty individuals. Out of these twenty, nine contribute on a weekly basis. Put bluntly, less than two dozen of the total school population of 2000 care enough to put a little time and effort into the production of a newspaper for many to

criticize and throw away.

There are those who pay attention to issues discussed and questions raised, and these make valuable comments and suggestions. It goes without saying that these are the few who operate the student government, who attend faculty meetings, and who are concerned to the point of speaking out and working for change. Mediocrity is not solely found in connection with the newspaper. Students tend to treat classes lightly, not worrying about papers and grades until the end of the semester

comes. How can anyone expect to

get any lasting knowledge simply by cramming like mad the night before an exam? This defeats the purpose of the class, the professor, and the student. The honor system has also been taken with mediocre concern for years, and is just now beginning to build its effectiveness to the height of importance that it deserves. The Rotunda is in the process of conducting a poll dealing with student, faculty, and administrative opinions and suggestions. A random sampling of the student body is being polled along with the representatives from Legislative, Residence, and Judicial Boards. Between four and five hundred

By MR. DONALD STUART Miss Arc, do you have comment on these vandals who painted you last night9 "Oh my. not particularly. I've been here a while, and you just can't always avoid these untoward accidents." You're not angry'' "Of one dark night? One learns patience." Ah. Can you tell our readers who did it?" "No. That is, noone. Or everyone. A swarm of them came whooping in screaming 'colorless green ideas sleep furiously.' " I see. Well, will you comment on whether you are glad to be back safely in the Rotunda? "Oh yes, yes. A good many have come by to see me and tell me they had nothing to do with the paint, the dears. And I am grateful. I really learned a lot listening to them. They're smart, you know? They tell me their grades are going up every year and that now most of them are doing well above average. And the new ideas they have that set me thinking." ITh, can T help you down9 Do you think you should stand up on that pedestal9 "Now don't humor me as if I were an invalid. That's what I've been telling Jefferson and Mann and Ruffner up there at night. We girls have to do our own thing now. No more wearing yourself out trying to change the world, no more lousy army food and cold nights and worrying about everything. I'm not that mad fighter you have outside on that horse." What, you've left all that behind9 "Naturally.. I,ook above and you will find the nymphs of Rest and Recreation, not some aggressive drill sargent. This is the age of peace, and I expect to have my peace. I want to listen to Barbara Streisand and get a tan when it gets warm on the roof and shop for pre-faded jeans and take this corset off. Have you seen Mary Hartman yet9 The girls tell me its great. Ixwk, one of them gave me this ring I keep in my bag - see. you put it on your hand and it tells vou if you're

happy or not." Are you? "I don't know yet: you have to leave it on a while. But don't underestimate the little things of life. I never had much of a girlhood, and it's nice to be where people don't have anything to fret about except who's drinking in Stubbs illegally and whether to go out for dinner. When I was young we had to take school seriously and now look at how different it is â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can leave for long week ends and put everything off until exams. Some of the girls tell me that they have never been in the library either. You can sleep through breakfast, and church, and even classes!" You certainly do keep up "Well, you have to. I've been doing the same thing for too long. After a while you have to get going, do something different, move on. People are casual now and they take care of themselves. Politics9 Bah, no president or whatever ever made much of a difference to us women. Send the politicians and programs back to the people so we can have some more money for ourselves. It's

SGA Amendments Passed By Legislative Board By MARY I.OUISF.PARRIS The legislative board, at its Feb. lfi meeting, voted on the amendments to the Student Government Association Constitution. All of the amendments were passed, and now it is up to the student body to approve or disapprove these important changes in an upcoming referendum. An article in the Feb.17 issue of "The Rotunda" listed the SGA amendments, allowing students to consider them before voting. If there are questions about the amendments contact any member of legislative Board. Judicial Board or Residence Board. In other business, Brenda Stanley was named Day

in the Rotunda. With student ;nput and interest, government leaders will have the motivation to begin the processes of change. With student apathy, it can only be assumed that the majority is happy with the present situation, and

change is not necessary. All one has to do,

however, is listen to gripes in dormitory rooms, in the dining hall, and around campus in general to realize this is not the case. People are willing to complain to their roommates or best friends, but when it comes to going through the

necessary channels to make

suggestions, it is an entirely different thing. Nothing can be done if no one takes the initiative to begin, whether it concerns the Rotunda, Longwood or the outside world.

I'd glad I'm in here where you aren't responsible and always having to jump up and do something. Now if only Mark Spitz or Robert Redford would walk through that front door."

Student Activities Fees Committee

Tuesday, February 24,1976

Homesteading To Begin Soon

Misunderstood On L.C. Campus By MARTHA MoCOTTER This is the time of year when organizations on Longwood's campus begin to consider their financial situations and plan their budgets for the next year. After these plans are made, each organization will petition the Student Activities Fees Committee for the necessary funds to meet its budget. However, it is at this point that there seems to be a certain amount of confusion. Perhaps the SAFC is the most misunderstood committee on logwood's campus. We are often resented, dreaded, or most distressing of all, feared. In this article I shall attempt to answer these uncalled for and unjustified beliefs. I along with the entire committee have been quite concerned at having people come before our committee totally discombobulated as a result of these misconceptions. What is the Student Activities Fees Committee'' Who is on the committee9 What happens when people come before tho committee? Are money requests ever denied? I on behalf of the committee am going to explain the purpose and procedures along with answering some of the preceding questions. Any questions not answered should be directed to the committee chairman, Flaine Snead. The committee is made up of a chairman, a vice-chairman, the president of SdA, the Treasurer of SGA, the treasurers of each class, one staff member, the director of the Student Union, and two faculty members. These arc the people who usually, after having spent quite an amount of time, decide how much a certain organization is allotted. The money that this committee allocates comes from the activity fee that each I^ngwood student pays. The activity fee is now $35.00 per student per year. The total of these fees is approximately $66,000. This money is distributed among recognized organizations on campus. By the term "recognized" we mean an organization that has a constitution approved by legislative Roarri. Not all organizations actually come before the committee to formally ask for money. Most simply hand to the committee a written statement as to their needs. However, those that request over $1,000 or those that request money after allocations have been made are asked to come before the committee to explain their need When organizational leaders come hefore our committee they present us with their request.We

then may ask questions or make suggestions after the people making the request have left, a vote is taken and they are notified either in person, by phone, or in writing, depending on the situation as to the decision of the committee. On occasion the committee does not vote to fully meet the request of some group. However, when this happens it is done because the majority of the committee based on their judgment is not able to approve the request. Many people on SAFC spend many hours trying to make responsible and good decisions. It is not always easy. Hopefully this year, those applying for money will be more understanding and open when dealing with the committee. We are on this committee to serve the student body. We want to use the money we have in the best interest of the most students.

Residence Board Update Vice Chairman's Report: Sunday meals will be printed on the menus, starting sometime in the near future. Fire Wardens Report: A fire warden's corp will be established to help out at fire drills in the dining hall. The dining hall will be sectioned in order to get the students out properly. Old Business: 1. A floor president evaluation sheet is in the process of being drawn up. 2. Dean Swann will meet with the Board February 23, 1976, to discuss room sign up. New Business: 1. Vickie asked the Dorm Presidents to please get the Dorm Council minutes to her 2. Dorm Presidents were reminded that their duties extend through the week ends. 3. Student Government Day will be February 26. 1976. Assignment sheets were passed out to the Hoard members.

Playwright Arrives As Rosenblooms Nears Opening By LINDA FRANK I.udmilla Rollow, the playwright of In The Rest Room At Rosenblonm's. arrived at I/mgwood College campus late Thursday afternoon. Picked up at the airport in Lynehburg by Mr Young and several Ixingwood students and escorted to the campus, Ms. Rollow arrived baggageless. It seems the airlines forgot to transfer her luggage somewhere between Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Washington, D. C Her luggage arrived the next day. Expecting to see a "onebuilding college," Ms. Rollow was amazed at the beauty of the campus and the number of facilities. Caught a little off guard when asked what her feelings were while she was viewing a rehearsal she candidly replied that it was exciting to watch her own creation being performed but that half of what she was watching wasn't hers and the other half of the show amazed her in the way that the students were performing it. Talking further without any prompting. Ms. Bollow added that it was good for the director to be someone other than the playwright because he could think of things that the playwright had not realized would be good for the show There are two major additions that In The Rest Room At Rosenbloom's will have. The first addition is a strobe light effect introduced by Mr. Young and carried off so well by the cast that it should prove to be hilarious. The second addition is .lacqui Singleton's original song "Old I.ace And Lilacs" at the beginning of the show which sets a soft mood for the opening of the show. .lacqui. the student director, wrote the song with Posenbloom's in mind.

Procedure For Room Assignments Room Assignments will be made using the following procedure: Rising Seniors: C Room, Wednesday, March 24. Numbers 1-300 at 6:45; 301 and up at 7:30 Rising Juniors: C Room, Tuesday, March 30. Numbers 1-300 at 6:45; 301 and up at 7:30 Rising Sophomores: ABC Rooms, Monday, April 5. Numbers 1-300at 6:45; 301 and up at 7:30 This week, policies and procedures for residence hall room registration will be distributed in the residence halls. Dean Swann requests students to read this information prior to participating in room registration.

Ms. Rollow's original intention in writing plays was to have them done by and for adults Two of her one acts were produced at Milwaukee University by and for the college students. Having gone to the show with reservations as to its reception by the audience, she was surprised that the audience received the one acts so warmly. Having pictured in her mind's eye older women doing the roles in Rosenblonm's because the main characters in the show are elderly ladies. Ms Rollow commented that the cast here at I,ongwood were doing 8 good job with their perspective parts. She has evidently changed her mind about writing specifically for an adult audience because she discovered that if a play is worthy of an audience it could be produced for any audience and still receive a response. Herself a very warm and responsive woman. Ms. Rollow had made a hit with the cast and crew of Rosenbloom's prior to her arrival here at I-ongwood by sending a Valentine's Day card to them wishing them all luck with the rehearsing of the show. She remarked that her reception here has been nothing but pleasant Fnjoying her stay here, having lunch occasionally with some of the students in the dining hall, she is staying at the Alumni House across the street from the college. She attended Indians at Hampden-Sydney College on Saturday night. Ms. Bollow has attended every rehearsal of Rosenbloom's since her arrival Asked when she started writing she replied as most writers do "All my life!" Ms. Bollow has never participated in the production of one of her plays before and is happy to be able to work so closely with the cast of Rosenbloom's. Ms. Rollow will be flying down to Memphis to see the play in its showcase production that I .ongwood will be doing there for the Southeastern Theater Conference. The show's timing is being cut back by several changes in the script and the cast has made strong headway this past week end. last minute changes are being completed and the last roses on the set are being painted. Light designs are done after a few setbacks and excitement in mounting in Jarman as 8:00. February 25, the opening night of the show, approaches. I.ongwood College students who previously remarked that they wanted a curtain call after a show should be quite pleased with the curtain call for Rosenbloom's.

GENE COTTON TUNES UP FOR SHOW.

(Photo by Phelps)

Gene Cotton, Naturalistic ABC Recording Artist, Peformed In Coffeehouse Saturday Night ByJOl.FIU Rod and white checkered tablecloths, flickering bottled randies, cokes, and the sights and smells of two hundred students munching salty popcorn set a fitting atmosphere to welcome the naturalistic ABC recording artist, dene Cotton, for a Student Union Coffeehouse. Held in the Cold Room on Tuesday night from 8:00 until 10:00 p.m., and headed by Coffeehouse chairperson, Debbie McCollough. admission was free with a I ongwood I. D. and $1.50 for nonstudents, with free popcorn distributed and cokes sold. With a hometown of Columbus. Ohio, yet claiming a warm affinity for his '"current" home. Nashville. C.ene Cotton provided two hours of pure entertainment singing lead vocals and playing background acoustics guitar, while the red-headed, redbearded I,enny from Chicago. Illinois offered his excellent lead rendition on both acoustic and electric guitar. A professional coffeehouse and college concert performer who has produced several albums, appeared as a guest star on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand," and served on back-up for Charlie Daniels, Olivia Newton-John. Johnny Nash, Wet Willie, and The Marshall Tucker Band. Cotton opened his concert with the song, "There's a Reason," followed bv "IiCt Ixwe be the Chapel in Your Life." Personalizing his presentation by talking to his audience between songs. Cotton first described his reaction to "Farmville. U.S. of A." claiming that this was "after all my first visit to this city?!" Providing an added effect, a light tree augumented the dimly lit room with flashing reds, greens, and blues as dene Cotton broke into his third number which included strains of "Pearl of wisdom, slice of green cheese beamin' like kerosene" while Lenny executed some incredible slide techniques, amazingly with an acoustic guitar. Feeling that many listeners might not quite understand his Nashville preferences, this artist then explained that "Commercial country music has misrepresented Nashville music. . . so I wrote a song to answer a

few questions!" This introduction led to the "slightly" red Nashville lyrics which playfully twanged of "Never had mud flaps on my car! Never had me a rhinestone shirt! Never milked a cow! Never seen a Grand Olc Opry star!... But got that sweet ole country spirit; Nashville is my home!" This humorous tune switched to one of seriousness, however, as Cotton vocally alternating between a harsh. "Ten-four good buddy!" to a pseudo "Don Mcl^in" voice performed his interpretation of the soft "It's Not the Way that You Say It. . ." from the Moody Blues album, "In the dray of the Morning." Cotton's original music, an odd combination of a "Michael Murphy-Harry Chapin folk style blend" then exposed viewers to "The Teaser," which he said is "usually dedicated to guys from the girls in a coed school, but here it goes anyway!" described certain males as "seldom a pleaser, maker but never a taker: you're an assemblyline lover." His newest ABC release, "For All the Young Writers" composed of original songs written but unperformed by personal friends provoked the song. "Along too long... I want to write you a song, but don't know how." Discussing Columbus. Ohio, Cotton stated then that, "Surf music was the rage in my high school years, but there really isn't any surfing in Columbus, Ohio. . . so we all went tubing instead, just floating easily down the river with an Orange Crush in each hands." Obviously this hinted of the next song. "Tubing," offering a talented guitar solo by I-enny as Cotton sang, "workin' all day ain't that much fun to do. . . so I'm floatin' down the river on a tube" with "you!" Cuts from his '75 fall release. "Sunshine Rover" followed, outlining a 1955, '63 to 1984 time projection, proceeding the all encompassing "Worst Possible Age," which is naturally "when you're pushing six." As proud of his family as he is of his work. Cotton spoke of his children who include a 4M> year old son who, at the experimentive age of 2'^ "tried to flush my robe down the toilet and woke me up at six in the morning to tell me it couldn't be

done!" and an adopted halfAmerican, half-Vietnamese daughter who with her brother inspired the song "Young people. . . please don't run awav from me." "19th Street Superstar," described a hig-city phenomenon as "one who'll wear pantyhose for a fee: many say his name is Sonny Bono, but he looks more like Cher." Backup lenny also included an excellent original composition. "Reautiful to be i/oved by You," which was (Photo by Phelps) unfortunately his only vocal contribution throughout the GENE COTTON'S ACCOMPANIST, LENNY coffeehouse, after which Cotton dedicated "Poor Mrs. Oliver" to "all the elderly and recluses on a fixed income and alone old and gray who wait for the day." Closing with the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" and a unique Bicentennial tribute questionim* "the only way to bring peace is to sacrifice your children?. . . Your Since students have been and short-term care. Local own money says 'In Ood We asking about the Infirmarv physicians and College staff have Trust' yet it's against the law to services and what plans are been working together to locate pray in school." Cotton projected being considered for the available physicians so that a throughout the evening a genuine Infirmary when the College doctor's services would be appeal to and warmth for his available to Ixmgwood students audience.

O.D.U., Medical College Of Virginia And H-S's Honor Systems Looked At Compiled By MARTHA M. COTTER Old Dominion University The honor system at Old Dominion University is based upon the integrity of the individual. The system assumes that the student will accept his role in the University community with a feeling of self-respect and duty. Lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and failure to report such rases all constitute violations of the Honor System In view of the fact that each student upon admission to the University has signed an honor pledge, it follows that each piece of work submitted hy a student is to be his own work or prepared under conditions specified by the faculty member in charge of the course The students assume the responsibility of proctoring inclass examinations and quizzes. It is the responsihility of students and faculty memhers to report a suspected violation to the Honor Council. Medical College of Virginia The student Body organization. believing that self-government in college is fitting preparation for self-government in life following graduation, conducts its affairs by means of an honor system under which every student is assumed to be trustworthy and unwilling to do anything dishonest or dishonorable Anv student failing to live up to the prinicples of the honor system bv lying, cheating, or stealing is eliminated from the student body. Judgment is made by the Honor Council elected by the student body. All students must support the Honor Code and report infringements thereon to the Honor Council. The following pledge is posted in each classroom and applies to all examinations unless otherwise stated by the instructor: "On mv honor, I have neither given nor received aid on this examination nor am I aware of any breach of the Honor Code." Each student, as a condition of matriculation at the MCV Campus of Virginia Commonwealth University agrees to abide by and uphold the Honor Code. A detailed description of the Honor Council's rules of procedure is available upon request.

Hampden-Sydney College The essence of the Honor System is individual responsibility. Rasic assumptions of the System are that a student is a mature younn man and that he will conduct himself honorably in all phases of student life. A further assumption is that every student is concerned with the observance of these principles for his own sake, that of his fellow students, and that of the College. A brief description of the Honor System is presented below under the Student Court heading. The judicial power of Student C.nvernment is vested in the Student Court, a body composed of members elected by classes. The Court tries cases arising from breaches of the code of student conduct. College rules, and honor violations. The Student Court, by authorization of the Roard of Trustees and the faculty, has initial jurisdiction over matters concerning breach of the Honor Code Student Court hearings are closed, and Court members arc under oath never to reveal any of the proceedings deemed confidential at the time of the hearing If a man is found guilty of a hreach of the Honor Code, the chairman of the Student Court reports the case to the Vice President for Student Affairs, who informs the parents of the student in question. Further, if a man is found guilty, the student hody is informed. Otherwise, the case is closed in order to protect the man who was initially charged but found innocent Before matriculating, a student must sign a statement acknowledging that he

understands his obligations as a student under the Honor System, and that an infraction of the Honor Code at any time during the session is normallv punishable by temporary <no less than one full semester) or permanent suspension from the College. A professor may require a student to sign a formal pledge on any work. Infractions of Of The Honor Code Cheating (giving or receivine aid without the consent of the professor on tests, quizzes, assignments, or examinations. This means that unless the professor specifically exempts work, giving or receiving aid is prohibitied.), plagiarism, lying, stealing, failure to report Honor code offenses, forgery, knowingly furnishing false information to the institution, alteration or use of institutional documents or instruments of identification with intent to defraud, and intenionally passing a bad check. The student's obligations under the Honor System do not stop at the limits of the campus but apply in all places during the school year. All suspected Honor Code violations should be reported to an officer of the SGA or a member of the Student Court. The chairman of the Court will notify the accused of the charges against him and allow him to obtain a student advisor without legal training. The Pledge: On my honor I have neither given nor received aid on this work, nor am I aware of any breach of the Honor Code that I shall not immediately report. (Taken From HampdenSydney handbook)

New England Sinfonia By DIANE QUINN The visiting Artist series Committee has brought a great variety of talent to Jarman Auditorium: opera singers, a pantomime circus, "Godspell," and now, the New England Sinfonia. I^st Wednesday night, approximately twenty musicians played a great variety of "classical" music to a littleless-than-average audience, but an appreciative one. The opening composition was "Dances From a New England Album, 1856" hy William Rergsna.The dance types chosen from the 19th century were a Cotillion. Song. Waltz and Quadrille,. Each dance had a deliberate "mistake" which made the pieces light, easy listening and a fresh start. The dances were followed bv Aaron Copland's "Quiet City". Copland wrote this incidental music for an Irwin Shaw play of the same name. The show was a flop but Copland expanded the themes and reorchestrated it in 1940 for English horn, trumpet and strings. Lynda Jacquin played the English horn solo and John Schnell took the lonely solo trumpet. Backed by the strings, this composition was the highlight of the concert. The solos were never overpowered by the full orchestra and the musicians used Copland's music well to paint the picture of the small town. The last composition in the first half was aptly chosen for our bicentennial. "1776", and was surprisingly written by a woman,

Margarita Merriman. The piece was written for The New England Sinfonia in 1975. and uses three early American tunes. "Yankee Doodle" is first in the violins followed by "Chester" (a theme by William Billings, the first significant American Composer). The last theme was from a song. "My Days Have Been So Wondrous Free." written by Frances Hopkinson, a signer of the Declarations of Independence. One interesting point was the use of the back of the bow bounced on the strings to produce the effect of marching footsteps. The second half was more difficult listening, but the audience had been well-prepared for some heavier music. The Sinfonia opened the second half with "Pastorale D'Fte" by Arthur Honegger. The most impressive characteristic in this piece was the perfect transition as the melody line started by the flute, was picked up by the clarinet in which the listener was not aware of any change, except in timbre. The final piece was conducted from memory by director .Ton Robertson: Schubert's "Svmphony No. 5 in R-flat." Throughout the performance there are always inevitable "technical" mistakes: but there was no match to Mr. Robertson's expressive conducting The Sinfonia gave him each detail he asked for. but also felt the music individually: combining to make a most musical performance

SHOW

Highlight Sophomore Weekend Sophomore Weekend got off to a start with a mixer Friday night originally scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. and extend until 1:00 a.m. Due to unavoidable circumstances however the band arrived late and did not begin until 9:00 p.m. The band featured was "Time Peace" from Richmond and consisted of six members. They did a variety of music including hits from K.C and The Sunshine Rand and favorite "rock n' roll tunes" from the past. The mixer, cosponsored by the Sophomore Class and Student Union, got off to a slow start due to lack of publicity which was delayed by red tape and final approval. The following night a Coffeehouse was scheduled to take place from 8:00-12:00 p.m. in the ARr rooms. It originally featured five local talents.but. due to sickness and unavailability only two were able to perform. Jacqui Singleton, always a favorite, did some of her own

songs as well as music by popular vocalists. It was very evident that the audience's favorites were from Jacqui's production of "Class of 88." The other attraction of the night was Kitty Wray making her debut with her originals entitled "Second Floor Cox" and "I-ongwood Flu". At the end of these performances an "open mike" time was announced and the crowd urged an ever favorite of performers up to the microphone-Cnv Pack. Cov managed to bring back memories of her earlier coffeehouses (done in conjunction with Jan Waldron) by doing some "oldies but goodies" for the audience. Then to end the night a freshman by HUMS, In. «£ Sal. the name of Renee Manley fascinated the crowd with songs by Joni Mitchell. Urged on by the Admission 504 audience's insistance she performed request after request and finally ended the coffeehouse when the last request had been fulfilled.

Variety Of Judges Decide Finalists Five prominent judges from varied fields of interest served on a panel to select the contestants for the Miss Ixmgwood Pageant on February 12. The preliminary judging which was held in the Gold Room was for the purpose of narrowing the twenty-two applicants down to the official fifteen contestants for the pageant. Judging of the contestants was hased on the same values as considered at the Miss Virginia Pageant and at the national Miss America Pageant. Personality, poise, appearance and talent are the major requirements for the Miss Ixmgwood Pageant. A spot presentation of each girl's talent was recommended but not required at this preliminary judging. Serving on the five-member panel of judges on February 12 were Mrs. Shirley Burger. Mrs Kathy Hickok. Ms. Cathy McCanless, Mr. Travis Stanley, and Mrs. Robert Rlasch.

Behind Closed Doors And Other Questions; An Interview With Chairman Of Judicial Board You are then free to go and gather character references and letters of reccomendation. During all judicial proceedings, vou and vonr counselor may be present while the witnesses are appearing before the Board You will then have the opportunity to respond to the witnesses' testimony directly to the Board The witnesses will remain while the accused responds to their testimony. The Board will then discuss the strength of the evidence. This 12 member Board, consisting of the three officers, two representatives from each class, and one day student will make motion to accept the plea, discuss, then come up with a motion for action. The Board then makes a recommendation to a committee consisting of the Dean of the College. Dean of Students. Chairman of Orientation, and the Vice Chairman of Legislative Board, and they review the case. So Judicial Board presents the facts, and this group decides. At the end of the investigation Dean Heintz contacts the student with their decision. She then calls her parents or Dean Heintz calls. Depending on the time of the semester it can affect the suspension. If it is two weeks before exams, the student will usually be allowed to finish j if it is at the beginning, the student can usually get part of the tuition money refunded. Most students caught cheating, lying, or stealing are not those that make a habit of it. Grade pressure, problems at home, hardship problems. and competition can cause infractions. If the student refuses to appear at the hearing or voluntarily withdraws from the College, she may be tried "in absentia." A two-thirds majority vote of Board members is necessary for a verdict of guilty. The student will be notified immediately of a In. Two Convenient Locations finding of "innocent." When a 209 North Main Street Farmville Shopping Center case cannot be finished in one And Phone 392-3145 Phone 392-3167 night or when circumstances warrant, any student involved in the case will be asked to stay in the Infirmary.

By THALIA GF.RACHIS Dear Ask, What do they do behind those closed doors9 Is it legal? Where do these events occur? Who arc they? These are many of the halfwhispered questions students at longwood ask about Judicial Board trials and investigations. You as students have a right to know the facts. So what if it's written in the Handbook'' Most of vou have never read it anyway. The Botunda and the judicial Board want to dispell some of these fallacies. First, the Attorney General of Virginia reviews the rules and regulations of this Board and sets the precedent. The student may have council in the room during questioning, has the right to review the nature of the evidence, and does not have to answer questions which might incriminate her. I.ongwood's Judicial Board is a student system set up and run by students, and for that reason formal legal counsel is not allowed. As Buth Bourne says. "We'd be lost in the legal terms and technicalities. The Roard makes the final decision, not a judge." The College has six student counselors who know the rules of the Board Everything is said in confidence,but their job is to tell the truth. They are there to help the accused student and to stress the importance of a fair trial. These six counselors areFUen Beed, Martha Morris. Beth Hatch, day Harrington. Maureen Byan. and Beth Bafferty. Suspension from l.ongwood does not put a black mark on a student's record. The only thini: nut in the file is the fact that she

withdrew from school. All trials are taped, and Judicial Board does keep a file card on the case First you are approached by a student, and she accuses you of cheating on a test that morning. She tells you that you have 24 hours to turn yourself into Judicial Board. You go to Judi Board Chairman. Buth Bourne, or to Vice Chairman. Mary Williams, and give them an explanation. They will give you your rights as stated at the beginning of this article, and you sign it, acknowledging that vou understand. Ruth and Mary always work together. They will question you and get the circumstances. Then they'll go to the accuser and professor and question them. They'll actually ask about your grades. How did you do on the test in question'' Were you fail in !■ before the incident9 Has it ever happened before9 Or it could happen this way. You were seen cheating, and instead of a face to face confrontation, your accuser goes to the Board Chairman and reports you. People on this campus hesitate in a confrontation. Most frequently they are turned in, and Buth and Mary come to them with the report. Ruth. Mary, and the *wo faculty advisors. Dr. Mar\ Crisfn and Dr. Robert lx?hman. will sit down and discuss the case. If. after this preliminary investigation, they feel that there was an infraction, they set up a trial. You will be given a procedure sheet telling the time of the trial By the way, all trials are held in the Student Government Office in I,ankford

When asked about the idea of open trials, Buth expressed the opinion that, "I don't agree with open trials because the student already has so much pressure on her. An innocent victim caught in circumstantial evidence can be treated like an accused person There is just too much pressure where it isn't needed." Why does the Board post results? "We post results." said Ruth, "because stealing especially is such a widespread problem, and people need to know the consequences Thev must become aware." When questioned about Board secrecy. Ruth said that, "people don't understand and aren't educated enough. We're not trying to hide secrets in the back allies: our procedures aren't crooked. We want them educated, faculty as well. When they accuse a student, tell them to turn themselves in within 24 hours. We wish faculty would read our update material If it's over one page long, they usually won't read it They really need to know!" In conclusion Buth said. "If you aren't going to stand up for what you believe, be sure! When it comes down to being the one to turn someone in. people back down. It's frustrating to work on a case for days and suddenly find that. We can't have a trial without concrete evidence." Hopefully this review has cleared up what goes on behind closed doors.
