By DONNA S1ZEMORE The deafening silence of quiet hour is broken by a soft knock at the door. In walks your best friend with her English textbook and assignment. She gives you a quick glance, and you know why she is there. You are aware that your friend is failing Fnglish, anil you feel caught in a sticky bind. You realize that if you do her work for her. you will be in violation of the Honor Code. But. you ponder on whether or not refusing to do her paper is in violation of the code of friendship. Situations similar to the preceding one are everyday occurences in college. Moral and ethical values are constantly being put to the test. If cheating were a disease, it would be in epidemic proportions. Dr. Mark G. Weatherly, a professor in adolescent psychology at longwood College, has engaged in extensive research in the field of cheating His findings are astonishing. According to his research, cheating is most rampant in high school. Interviews with a number of college students seem to support his theory. Dr. Weatherly obtained much of his information from a recent survey of three hundred Longwood students, and he followed it up with a commentary on the subject which appeared recently in the Richmond Times Dispatch. His article prompted a

number of requests from schools to come and speak to the students on cheating He stated that many of the letters he received were from parents and teachers, thankinu him for waking people up lo the reality of cheating, and urging them to do something about it. Dr. Weatherly was asked to comment on the Honor Code at Longwood. He slated that he felt that the Honor ('(Hie was more effective at longwood than at any other school he had ever seen. He also staled that he has noi been able lo detect any cases of cheating in his classes ai Longwood. He did state that he had had several cases of plagarism. He called each student into conference and gave them the option of doing the paper over or taking a zero Several students at longwood were asked their views on cheating and the Honor (.'ode. A student from New York replied, "When I was in high school almost all the kids cheated. I recall one incident when every kid in the class obtained the same grade because of cheating. All the teachers knew that this cheating was going on. One teacher was even known to ask for an essay from her students on ways to cheat. When I visited longwood College, and attended a class where a professor was administering a test, I witnessed something very astonishing. The professor left

the room, and not a single person cheated I feel proud lo attend a school where the Honor Code has such effectiveness " Another student commented: I feel that the Honor Code is a very good idea." She staled that. In high school cheating occurred in a monopoly form." Here ai longwood, she feels that the students have more pride in themselves than to cheat Still another student at longwood commented "I feel that cheating is primarily a bid for acceptance, whether it be for social status from peers or whether it be lo obtain praise from parenis. I also feel that the Honor Code at longwood is an effective weapon in combating cheating " Dr. Weatherly and the majority of students interviewed were highly praiseworthy of longwood's Honor Code. From the interviews with Dr. Weatherly and the three students interviewed, the Longwood Honor Code has withstood the cheating commonplace in high schools.

Ex-Con To Speak Tonight "Does Correction Correct? He is a responsible businessman, a conservative dresser, rather distinguished looking with his hair graying around the temples and a ready smile. Al Barrows hardly looks like he has spent the major part of his adult life, 20 years, in prison serving a life sentence. Tonight he will be speaking in Wygal at 8:00 p.m. on "Does Correction Correct". There is no admission charge. Al Barrows grew up in Boston. At age 14 he was placed in reform school for stealing a car. When he was released, he enlisted in the army, lying about his age. In 194.'! he went AWOL, and was arrested later that same year and tried for kidnapping, robbery and rape of a while woman a crime he maintains that he never committed. When he entered prison an old prisoner advised him: Don't serve time; let lime serve you. Al Barrows was 19 at the time. In l%:i al age 39, he was released on parole, ihe old prisoner's advice well taken. His first few months behind bars at Massachusetts State Prison, Charleston, were agonizing for him, then he discovered lhai "the only place I lived was within my own mind." With this self-realization. Barrows made the decision to grow rather than stagnate in prison

Miss Longwood Pageant Underway The 1978 Miss Long wood Pageant plans are well underway. Kniry forms were submitted and preliminaries were held December ti and 7. Of those who entered, ten girls were selected to participate in this year's pageant activities. They were lane Bruce. Patricia Shirey, Linda Kulp, Kim Turnbull. Carolyn Craft. Carol Atkinson, Mary Beth Carey, Kllen Farmer, Teresa Snellings, and Jill /.eavin. The pageant is scheduled for Saturday, March 11 The winner of the Miss Longwood Pageant not only represents Ixingwood in the Miss Virginia Pageant held in July, but is also a representative in the Peanut Festival and Tobacco Bowl, as well as other activities. Ann U'avitt is this year's pageant executive chairman. Assisting her on the various committees are: assistant executive chairman. Deanna Deane; producer, Mary Woolfolk; director. Mary Kay McDaniel; business manager, Kobin Childress and Martha Bransford; scholarships, Robin Stark; choreography. Debi Kinzel and Kim Kurbee. Also as head of committees are: Entries, Deanna Deane; hostess, Beth Highton; Judges, Brenda Kaulconer; and publicity, Debbie Joyner and Carol

Fleming. Lyndi Chalkley, Miss I-ongwood 1977, advisor Dr. T.C. Dalton. and co-sponsors Mrs. Barbara Stonikinis and Mrs. Peggy Oolubic are also working with the committees and their chairmen to make Miss Ixingwood 1978 a success.

In addition to his regular prison work assignments, he became president of the prison debating team, won the heavyweight boxing championship at the age of 34, played the saxophone in the band, was a reader in an inmate's club that taped books for the blind, was a member of theweight lifting and baseball teams, started playing football in his early 30's and was later elected coach and led the team to a league championship. He also operated a laundry business that enabled him to save more than $1,000. Barrows made it a point to keep up with happenings on the outside by talking to incoming prisoners. Aware also of a need to communicate with the outside world he became embarrassed by his poor grammar and inability to use punctuation correctly. The dictionary in the prison library became his Bible. He worked diligently to teach himself punctuation and grammar, and increased his word power by reading a daily newspaper feature called • Thoughts for the Day." At the stale prison in Norfolk County, he look advantage of the well-

»

equipped library. Although his formal education did not extend beyond the fourth grade, Barrows' ambition and eagerness to learn while in prison, have made him easily conversant on a variety of subjects from Shakespeare to stereophonic systems. On his release from prison, and confident that he was worth much more than the menial jobs he was offered, he went to KIJT Corp., in Cambridge, Mass., and was given a job on the assembly line. Two weeks later he was inspector of the line, and it wasn't too long after that he became supervisor. In two years he had become coordinator in charge of all incoming material. He left his job at KI Ji in 1969 to become supervisor of operations for Bradlees. a large New Kngland supermarket chain. Barrows is not bitter. He has been able to build a new life for himself. He devotes much of his spare time to a Y.M.C.A. fellowship program which assists newly released parolees in their adjustment and also speaks to organizations and church groups about the plight of deprived children.

Students Begin Internship In Legislature By PAULA JOHNSON In ihe Longwood History Department, there are two students away on internships and one student has returned from an eight-month-long internship. D.J. l.indsey is with Senator James T. Kdmunds, Virginia Klemer is with Attorney Oeneral Marshall Coleman, and Mary Beth Edwards has returned from her internship. To the local Southside area. Senator James T. Kdmunds is known to be one of the more active members of the Senate, and D.J. Lindsey is assisting him by monitoring committees while the Senator is attending sessions of other committees on which he serves • i such as Agriculture. Conservation and Natural Besources, Oeneral Laws. Rehabilitation and Social Services, and Education and Health). D.J. has been gathering information about the proposal to use Lake (iaslon in North Carolina as a source of water for Southside Virginia and on problems involved with putting a medium security prison in nearby Powhalan County. While interviewing D.J. by phone. Senator Kdmunds came on the line to say that I/ongwood had sent him someone who was doing an outstanding job. Virginia Klemer has been assigned to monitor committees which concern legislation of importance to the Attorney General's office such as the Appropriations Committee, which will consider Mr. Coleman's proposal for uniform sentencing, and the current legislation pertaining to the Senate Corporation Commission. Also, she will assume responsibility for reporting press coverage and comments about the Attorney Oeneral and his office so that the Attorney Oeneral will know what information is reaching the public. Campaigning that he would be the "People's lawyer,"

Mr. Coleman will be trying to keep the public informed about the process of his programs. Mary Beth Edwards has returned to school after serving ;he longest internship, eight months, known to lxmgwood. Mary Beth started at the beginning of April 1977. and ended in November 1977. after Marshall Coleman was elected to ihe Attorney Oeneral seat in the fall election. Mary Beth was second in campaign for Marshall Coleman's bid for Attorney Oeneral. She was given the responsibility to find a new campaign headquarters but ended up in the same spot. Her basic job after Coleman won the nomination was to do all of Coleman's scheduling; any place they went, whatever he had to do that day, was Mary Beih's responsibility for getting the candidate there. After her internship, she had several job offers but chose instead to return to school to get her degree, because, as she put it, i would be happy now, but in five years I might not be able to go any further without a degree." Mary Beth is majoring in business marketing and minoring in government. She is lacking two semesters and will graduate in December 1978. An intern works on the job usually for the full session of the legislature, and then produces a research paper in some problem developing out of the work. Mary Beih'l paper is entitled "The Kffect of Personality on Campaigning Management." She chose this topic because of her close contact with Attorney Oeneral Coleman. looking back, Mary Beth said that she thoroughly enjoyed her internship, and if she did want to go back into campaigning, she would have the statewide experience and the reputation as a hard worker that would gain her the position that she would need.

A Mardi Gras Weekend: Concerts, Pizza, And Fun By PAULA JOHNSON A Mardi Oras'.' At longwood-' Well. yes. there is going to be a Mardi Oras. but not quite the celebration of its New Orleans counterpart. The Longwood Mardi Oras got its theme from ihe New Orleans celebration, but instead of the week-long festivities. S-UN hopes to have a successful week end of festivities. Donna Hasky. who is a member of the committee which helped with the planning of the Mardi (iras weekend, said: "We hope that the Mardi Oras will prove to be a big weekend for I/ongwood students. Until now. many have gone away for a "big weekend" to.such places as U.Va. and VMI. This, of course, excludes our own Spring Weekend. If the weekend does prove to be a success, it might be able to compete with some of the other schools." On Friday, February :\, Meisburg and Walters will be in concert in Jarman Auditorium at 8:00 p.m. The group T and M Kxpress will be the warm up band. "Both T and M Kxpress and Meisburg and Wallers have appeared at Ixingwood before, so they should be familiar to many of the students," Donna said This event is the only event open to the general public. For lxmgwood students the cost is $1.00, for the general public the cost is $2.00. On Saturday, February 4, from

9:00 pm.-l:00 a.m. in the lower dining hall, the Virginia Wolfe band will provide music for a dance This dance will be a Mardi (iras type, meaning that if a student wishes to wear a costume, he or she may do so. costumes are optional. Tickets are $2.00 for Ixingwood students and $2.50 for guests. On Sunday. February 5, a Cabaret setting will be presented in the form of a Pizza Party. Richie Ii6cea will be in concert to provide the entertainment. There will be a 50 cents cover charge for Longwood students and a charge of $1.00 for guests. Cokes will be served as well as pizza, which is for 25 cents a slice. The Pizza Hut will furnish the pizza. For those who do not want to buy tickets separately for each event. Donna Hasky suggested ihat you try the Block Tickets. Block Tickets are $2.50 for lxmgwood students and $.150 for guests i this includes H-SC. etc. I. The Block Tickets cover everything from Friday night's concert to Sunday night's Pi /./.a Party. The weekend should prove to be the success hoped for by S-UN, so remember to mark your calendars for the Mardi Oras weekend, February :i-5.

Winter Ice Storm Brings Fun And Danger By DEBBIE NORTHERN When the snow and ice of winter appear, dining hall trays, ironing boards, and cardboard boxes disappear. These objects are the means by which sleigh-deprived

college students enjoy i hrilling rides over the slopes around the campus. Mr. Frank Klassen. director of the college food service, says that as many as 30 to 40 dining hall trays have disappeared since ihe "ice age" hit Ix)ngwood.

To the culprits, he adds that. When the snow's gone, bring them back'" Of courses, there have been other students more prepared for this wintry glaze, who. with skis have glided down from the top of Wygal Mall. Unfortunately, this weather has not been all fun and games. Throughoul the state, homes and schools have been lefi without heal or electricity, due to iceburdened trees breaking on power lines. Even Farmville has been the victim of an electrical power failure, which occurred January 14 While Umgwood did not suffer any ill effects because of backup generators. HampdenSydney went without heat or electricity for several hours. The ice has also caused hazardous walking conditions around the campus. Several students have been seen with feet sliding out from under ihem and they crash down on the sidewalk with their books flying through the air. The more adventurous students, i hough, take a running start to skid down icy. sloping sidewalks Many disgruntled students, who felt they would have to remain at Longwood two weekends in a row. took advantage of the sun's mercy Saturday and departed for home Three students found mat Saturday night's sledding at ihe campus school was not all what it was cracked up to be and ended up with cracked bones. Junior Patty K. Chapman wound up with a broken collarbone, freshman Wayne Cabell with a broken wrisi. and another freshman suffered a broken jaw in the early morning accidents Therefore, anyone who is going to be on the Ice had besi be careful.

THE ROTUNDA

It Wasn't Just Any Night By LINDA CARRILLO Dr. John S. Peale's office door was covered with white sheets of paper, each bearing a word. Together the sheets conveyed a message for January 18: Tonight won't be just any night." It wasn't 'just any night;" the message referred to Dr. Peale's participation in the third Faculty Colloquium lecture. Dr. Peale. a philosophy professor, discussed his topic, '(iod in Christ: An â– Historicist' Perspective on the Bible." In an interview. Dr. Peakexplained that the Historicisf perspective is not an original view of his. nor is it a new perspective. Citing Cordon Kaufman and Soren Kierkegaard, two philosophers. Dr. Peale added that his speech was based on his own interpretations. He elaborated that his historicist perspective deals with a "systematic way of looking at Biblical Christianity, which can be translated for a non-Christian who is interested in being a mature person." The philosophy professor emphasized the relevance of the historicist perspective for nonChristians. He defined a mature

person as one who is able to stand along despite obligations. Discussing the relevance of his perspective to everyday life. Dr. Peale commented in the interview that 'if we are Christians, we can see these moments in our own lives: we also see parallels of these moments in the world." A major pan of his lecture cenlered around parallels of moments in sacred and general history. For example. Dr. Peale formed a parallel between the moment of Exodus and contemporary events such as the Civil Rights movement and women's liberation. Another significant point concerned the distinction between sacred" and "general" history. In his lecture, he defined sacred histor\ as dealing with the relation of Cod and man and with ihe events caused b\ Cod. \lc explained that general history is recorded and is concerned with events and circums.ances caused by man. In the interview. Dr. Peale .ulded ihal the various aspects of the historicist perspective, the distinction between sacred and general history, the moments from the Bible, and the parallels of these moments, "help us lo understand what is going on in the world."

THE ROTUNDA

Tuesday, January 24,1978

FROM THE EDITOR . ÂŤ Well, we have been in the year 1978 for almost a month. The second semester started out rather painlessly with the most organized and easy registration ever. The two day stretch kept conditions from becoming like the crowded, nerve racking registration day of last semester. Schedules could be changed before going into the registration process by observing the listing of closed classes written on the blackboard. The administration heard the student plea to come up with a better, new idea for registration, and did. As the new Editor of The Rotunda, I hope I too can use new ideas for the paper and serve the student body by publishing a paper based on student interests. This newspaper exists to benefit the student body by keeping them informed as to what is happening on the campus, and to a lesser degree, in the world around them. No one should have the excuse that there is 'Nothing to do" on campus. The Rotunda publizes Student Union activities, and departmental events, most of which are free and open to the public. Of course, The Rotunda often runs into a problem of not having enough room for all the copy it receives. We will attempt to focus on those happenings which affect most of the Longwood population and hope not to leave any group or organization out. The Rotunda wishes to work with the administration and students in presenting an informative and interesting paper. We welcome fresh, new ideas for features and news stories. The Rotunda relies on student input. The work of writing and laying out the newspaper rests on student volunteers. Fortunately, The Rotunda has had interested student members assist with this work. Anyone interested in being a part of The Rotunda, in any phase, is welcome to attend the staff meetings on Monday nights at 7:00 p. m. Also each week there will be room provided for student expression; commentaries and Letters to the Editor, all of which are means by which students can express their views. 1 hope that the student body and the various college departments will continue to support THEIR paper. Good luck throughout the semester to make 1978 a very good year.

Commentary

Where Will The Males Live Next Semester? By TOM DeWITT Could it be possible that the majority of males will have their living quarters moved to a different location on campus next semester? The name Cox has been unearthed and presented to the Frazer occupants unofficially as their possible new location but they in turn would like to see the idea buried along with the proposal to make Cox an all male dorm. First of all, Cox can hold only 280 students and projected male enrollment for next year is near 500. Where is the surplus of males going to end up if Frazer won't be used? Wheeler? A possible hall for Sigma Phi Epsilon in Stubbs? Why Not? The Administration said last year at this time that males would never live in Cox. It was too impractical and unfair to

the females that wanted to homestead ground floor. Nevertheless, male students occupy ground floor at this time. Those were under different circumstances though. Male students requested they be given permission to live in Cox and went through the proper red tape to secure their floor. This year, however, it seems the "we will do everything in our power to help the male student" speech was chucked along with the "what's right for the female student is also right for the male student given the proper time." If this assumption contradicts the present opinion of the Administration and they honestly want to "make the male feel comfortable", then why the isolation in one dorm when the males living in Frazer have already expressed their opinion

1977 As Nineteen Seventy-Seven's days are now gene, I think of the memories that still linger on. Groucho and Benny and Chaplan and Bing, And the man from Memphis whom all called the King. Freddy Prinz created his own early demise, And in Evansville tragedy fell from the skies. A new President and a beer guzzling brother, That Plains, Georgia town and a lively old Mother. "Bert Lance is O.K.", Mr. Carter announced, "He can't help it if his checks always bounce." Gary Gilmore was granted his desire to die, But Karen Ann Quinlan's not allowed to try. Reggie Jackson's salary was considered loo much, Four "homers" in one game proved he still had the touch. Peace talks were started between Begin and Sadat, While Evil Kneival jumped a man with a bat. An energy plai\was created for all, It's succeeded in Congress like Pele's soccer ball. The Concord traverses the ocean each day, While the ozone layer slowly fizzles away. The F.D.A. with its scientific deducing, Said everything we're eaten is cancer producing. Steelworkers and miners and farmers alike, Said 77 was a good time to strike. Movies like "Rocky" proved once again, That being'a good guy doesn't mean you will win. So now I look forward to a new year. Drinking Brother Billy's and Bert's over-draft beer. Watching Jimmy Carter's ultrabrite smile, And Mid-East negotiations, television style. Now we've got the knowledge, the means and the skill, It seems all we're lacking is only the will. We can clean up the forests, the hills and the streams, But we've got to remodel the American Dream. The potential we have in this country is great, So let's make it work in '78. Dwighi Spivey

Heading For The Slopes - No Need To Be Rich - Just Careful By JANKT ALLEN Skiing is a fun. exhilarating sport. Millions of skiers enjoy the thrilling runs, the invigorating exercise, the escape from routine, and the social life, both on the slopes and apres ski. There are some non-skiers, however, who argue that the expense, the cold, the distance, and the risk combine to make skiing an unattractive sport. But skiing can be almost as expensive or as inexpensive as you want it to be. There is no dress code, so you can ski in jeans and a sweater just as easily as the latest ski fashions. It doesn't take a six-figure income to learn to ski. You can do it for under $100, in fact. And you can continue to ski after that for less than you'd imagine. Of course, skiing has its glamour set, but there's no written rule that says everyone has to spend a fortune on fashions or equipment. For those who say the cold is a problem, all you really need is a good pair of warm gloves, a heavy sweater, long thermal underwear a couple of pairs of socks, a scarf, and a hat, and you're ready to go. Of course, the new ski wear on the market is lightweight and very warm, as well as stylish. But for those on a tight budget, the aforementioned articles are just as good. Some people say that distance is a drawback. However, in Virginia alone, there are several ski slopes within easy driving distance. Among them are Bryce Resort. The Homestead,

Wintergreen and Manassanutten. Bryce Resort is located in Basye. Virginia, and it has three slopes ranging from Redeye—the easiest, to White Lightning—the most difficult. There are two double chairlifts. two rope lows, and one Mighty Mile low. The Homestead, located in Hot Springs on U.S. 220. 75 miles north of Roanoke, has three slopes ranging from novice lo expert and three intermediate to expert trails. The lift system consists of a trestle car. a T-bar. a rope tow, and a baby rope tow. Wintergreen is located off 29 on (J64 near Charlottesville. The slopes consist of one expert, two advanced, two intermediate, and one beginner slope. There are two triple chairlifts and one double chairlifi. Massanutten is located near Harrisonburg, Virginia, accurate information about the number and types of slopes and the lift system could not be obtained at this time. Then there are people who say that skiing is loo dangerous. Of course, there are elements of risk as there are with anything you do. According to the National Safety Council, just staying at home is a risk because thousands of people are injured in household accidents each year. But skiing is a very safely-conscious sport. Kxpert instruction is available at every area, large or small, and all trails are marked according to the degree of difficulty. Maintenance crews constantly pack and repack trains, and the ski patrol members patrol each

area to head off potential accidents. They warn beginning and inexperienced skiers from the more difficult slopes, and .hey are available to provide first aid in case of accidents Research shows that a majority of skiing injuries are lower limb injuries and most of these could have been avoided if the ski binding, (he device which attaches the ski to the boot, had released at the time of the accident. Therefore, use proper bindings and have them installed or inspected by a reputable ski shop or a qualified ski patroller. Most rental skis from a ski shop or the ski resort are inspected for safely. A person who tries to ski beyond his or her ability is another contributor to ski accidents. Therefore, if you are a beginner, slay on the easier slopes until you have progressed to the poini where you can iry a more difficult slope and remain in control. The key element in skiing, of course, is you. Fverylhing is up to you: be as chic and fashionable or as casual as you want, travel as much or as little as you wish, ski on equipment as old or as new as you want I as long as its safe I, and ski as fast or as slow as your skill and altitude dictate. Many people take frequent trips lo ihe slopes lo escape ihe routine of cily jobs or school and to release iheir frustrations by exhilarating runs down Ihe snowcovered slopes. Others enjoy the social benefits that skiing provides. It is a chance lo develop

new friendships while riding up the chairlifts or on ihe slopes themselves. And the apres ski attractions such as a roaring fire in the lodge, drinks, music, and friends lure many skiers to ihe spon. I is ihe great variety of experiences which count on

skiing No two runs are alike, no two skiers gel the same feeling on even ihe same run. It's the total experience: the social flavor, the apres ski, or the new friends. And every lime you find something new IO enjoy, it lifts your appreciation of the spon another notch.

yOU CAN DO IT WHEN POLES BECOME A PROBLEM In the early stages of skiing, ski poles sometimes interfere with a child's ability to learn. Youngsters frequently slip into the habit of holding their hands high in the air in an attempt to keep poles from touching the snow Holding hands high then fosters a stiff-legged and unbalanced stance (A) Taking a youngster s poles away usually corrects the problem by encouraging him to lower his hands Then a balanced, comfortable body position can develop naturally (B) Note Poles should be introduced or reintroduced before a child takes his first long ride on a lift On a lengthy run, he will likely need to propel himself forward —away from lift terminals or toward the entrance of trails—so he should be familiar with the feel of ski poles and how to use them

Lancer Gymnastic Season Opens By CELESTE KODK1GEUZ After four long months of hard practice and preparation, the IxMigwood Gymnastics team has finally started their season, proving to all thai all of those hours spent in the gym have paid off. The coach. Ms. Budd commented ihal many people have questioned her on the reason for starting practice in September, when there wasn't a meet until January. Her main reason is thai after a long summer, when most of the girls hadn't been working out. the team needs lime IO get themselves in shape and in top notch condition before competition begins. The 1978 Gymnastics team Consists of twelve sophomores and freshman, from various parts of the state and Maryland. This year's sophomores include Kim Furbee. the team captain, from Virginia Beach. Kim's strong event is floor, with beam running a close second. Due to injury, she is now competing only in exhibition. Debi Kinzell. also from Virginia Beach, competes in all around ieverything!, but her best areas seem to be the beam and bars. Dede Kirkpairick. another sophomore from Virginia Beach, competes all around also, although her favorites seem io be bars and vaulting. Margie Quarles. from Yorktown, competes mainly in vaulting and floor, but is a hopeful all around competitor. Lisa Hayes, another all around competitor specializes in beam and floor. Lisa is from Manassas and is at I,ongwood on a gymnastics scholarship. The freshmen on the team are Debbie Harrison, of Halifax, who is consistently good on beam, bars and vaulting. Dede Wolk, from Richmond competes mainly on bars. Krisly Balmer, from Leesburg, finds bars to be her best event, too. Claire Gilless,

from Glenburnie, Md., has beam as her main event. Linda Hilt, a scholarship winner from Ix)rton competes all around. The team's first three meets have been defeats. The firsi two meets were held on the week end of January 13-14. They traveled five and a half hours through the mountains and snow to reach Appalatian Slate College, in Boone. North Carolina. There ihey were defeated by 12.8 points. the score being 121.9 to 109.1. The next day they iraveled ihree and a half hours to reach Duke University, where the tired team lost, ihis time by 16.6 points. The final score was 119.85 io 103.25. l*»si Wednesday nighl. the iearn showed (heir best. They met with ihe University of Maryland-Baltimore Campus i UMBCi. The results. I-ongwood outscored UMBC by 7.8 points, ihe score being 116.1 to 108.3. The team has four more meets io compete in. two of those being at home: VPI on January 24, and William and Mary. February 14. The Slate meet is at VPI this year, and the number one Slate learn and top individual competitors from each event will go io Kegionals in Ixjuisville, Kentucky on March 10. Ms. Budd believes that once the gymnastics team meets Madison, they'll have no problem with the resi of the meets. Coach Budd believes that the young team, working harder with the potential that they have, can overcome the tough competition they're up against. In Saturday's meet with James Madison University, the lancers were defeated 126.05-118.9. Margie Quarles led the floor scores with a 8.0. Excelling in beam scores was Debbie Harrison with 7.8. Krisly Balmer was high scoring on the bars with 7.7, and Dede Kirkpairick led vaulting scoring with 8.0.

l-ancer matmen, ihe individual matches were hard-fought in every instance. Co-captain Steve Miller. tengwood's 118 pounder, wrestled two close matches with different General grapplers. both of whom were a full weight class heavier than Miller. Bobby Hulsey. at 134. wrestled two different Generals and. although losing, sent one of his opponents off the mat with an injury Mark Gagnon. at 142. was the first lancer to wrestle a General with an equal amount of experience and decisively beat his man Gagnon lout his second match in a grueling bout. Longwood's other co-captain. Doug Dillon, wrestled two of the Generals' best matmen and. while losing lo the first, defeated his second opponent i who had earlier won the W&L Invitational Tournament). Mike Mercil. Sherif Beshai. and Kevin Brandon, all three of whom are novice grapplers. wrestled bruising, courageous matches with their veteran General counterparts. As one observer noted. "Their ithe W&Li coach didn'i look very happy." The term "moral victory" may

sound trite and be overused but. if a team that has only wrestled on a mat for ten days and had no recruitment, can wrestle the Slate's Division III powerhouse, which has trained and wrestled since late last Fall, as competitively as the I-ancers did. then one thinks that this bodes well for the future. Coach Tennani summed matters up by observing. "Our men overcame adversity. We have lost tarry Medler for the season, and we have Norman Harris. Mac Main, anil Paul Fisher out with injuries; Dave Phillips out with illness, and a newcomer, Dung Nguyen, out with a bad ankle. Kven the men who wrestled at W&L wrestled "hurt." These young men have worked hard, and what they showed me yesterday was a lot of plain "guts" and pure grit. I'm proud of them and I think I -ongwood can be proud of them '' In concluding, Coach Tennani recognized the contributions of Dr. Craylon Buck, who has generously volunteered his nine to help run drills during wrestling and managers Donna Joyce and Karen Terry
