Kline Displays Sculpture PAUL MILLER KLINE

Of Building Blocks By DEBBIE MOUL Building blocks? You know — they had a picture, letter or a number on the side. You stacked them as high as you possibly could and just stood there, so proud of the tower that you had just created. But suddenly, your pride is crushed when your kid brother comes by and with one breath sends your monument crashing to the floor. Paul Kline, Head of the Art Department at Bridgewater Colleg-, preserves these childhood memories in his sculptures, many of which are on exhibit in the Bedford Gallery from October 21 to November 14. Mr. Kline's interest in this particular type of art originated through a desire or need to make words in a sculpture. Building blocks enable him to successfully reach this objective since they already have words on them. In his sculptures, Mr. Kline is not concerned with realism or with the abstract. He is interested in wood and metal, the materials that he uses and how these materials smell and feel

when they are cut, hammered, welded, handled, painted and sanded. He is more concerned and interested in the sculpture itself, "the form these materials finally take, the subtle variations that occur within that form, and with the order and harmony achieved through the arrangements and relationships of these forms." Mr. Kline attempts to convey messages and themes through his work. He has created a series of homage pieces, sculptures that "pay tribute" with reference to artists that he admires. The block sculptures on exhibit have been made over the last two years. Mr. Kline has been Head of the Art Department at Bridgewater College for seventeen years. He obtained his B.A. degree from Bridgewater and his M.F.A. degree at Virginia Commonwealth University. He has taught both beginning and advanced sculpture, Art History, Art Appreciation and beginning Drawing and Painting. His works have been exhibited at the

Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and at the Virginia Beach Boardwalk Show as well as other noted museums and shows. When speaking of building blocks, Mr. Kline says, "Most cf us have played with blocks years ago, but as we grew older and usually more inhibited — we put away childish things." He has added to his collection from several yard sales and from the toy departments of at least a dozen retail stores. Playskool, Inc. sent him four boxes of blocks-free of charge — to show their gratitude for the renewed interest in their product which he has exhibited. Mr. Kline said, "These blocks are made to look at — and they are made to' 'touch, feel, rub, and fondle." He urges viewers to at least touch them. "Besides," said Mr. Kline, smiling, "They're fun to play with."

By CATY RAFF ERTY legislative Board has formed an adhoc committee that is responsible for drawing up the constitution for investigation committee. This committee feels that the student body should be aware of the responsibilities of the proposed investigations committee. The investigation committee will be made up of eight members and a chairman. Two people will be elected from their respective class. The chairman will be elected by the student body. When an offense or violation of either Residence or Judicial board has occurred, the chairman of the investigations committee will be notified. He or she will then delegate any two members of the committee to do the investigation. After the investigation the committee as a whole will meet to review the facts. No names under any circumstances will be mentioned at this time. The committee will decide if there is a need for a trial. If a trial is needed, the chairman of the respective board will then be notified. If the committee feels that a trial is unnecessary, it will go no further. During a trial the two investigators of that case will present the facts to the board. The rest of the trial procedures will remain the same. All of this is just a proposal that has not yet been approved. We would appreciate any feedback from the student body. Please contact Caty Rafferty, Box 797.

LOG Teaches Of The Greal Outdoors By LORI DAVIS If you're interested in camping, hiking, canoeing, bicycling, or caving, now you can be a part of any of this . . . and more!! There is a new club on Ixmgwood's campus called the I/Higwood Outdoor Club (IXX1). Mr. George Stonikinis, the coordinator of the new group, is the man you want to get to know, if you love the outdoors. He became interested in this sort of thing when he was in college — especially caving. So last spring, he began reading news articles, as well as visiting other campuses and looked into the possibility of starting an outdoor program at Iiongwood. As he put it, "When we say we're going to do these things, we are' This group will be a way for interested people to learn a mature, rational approach to conducting outdoor activity." There will also be sectional leaders for the group, being either students or people in the community capable of instructing in a certain field. LOG is not liable for any of its members. It is merely a linkage for interested people to get involved in these great opportunities. There will be weekly meetings. There will also be speakers — some of the upcoming subjects to be presented are "back-packing kayaking, and survival in the outdoors." The club will have access to maps, too, as there will be trips to various places. According to Mr. Stonikinis, "Right off, I anticipate camping, caving, canoeing and hiking." The club will also offer climbing, hunting, fishing, skiing, and ecology. So come on!!! This promises to be a great thing! Be a part of the great outdoors'

CROP Rock-A-Thon Saturday By MARY IXHJISE PARRIS Another CROP Rock-a-thon is coming up! The Wesley Foundation is planning to hold the second annual CROP Rock-athon October 29, 1977 from 6:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at Lankford Student Center. What is a rock-athon? It is a fund raising project where the participants have sponsors who pay them a certain rate per hour to rock in rocking chairs. Last year rock-a-thon participants raised $1400 for CROP and this year the goal is $1500. In order to reach this goal, everyone's help is needed — either as a "rocker" or a sponsor. "Rockers" need not spend the entire day rocking, they can come early or late, but the more hours "rocked," the more money for CROP! All money raised will be donated to CROP which is the Community Hunger Appeal for Church World Service. CROP helps around the world in time of disaster by providing food, and clean water resources. CROP helps people help themselves in more than 30 countries by providing seed, fertilizer, roads, dams, irrigation systems, schools and family planning clinics. There is an estimated 460 million badly malnourished people in the world today. Many

Get Your Beer Here. . . Stroll Beer Ads Stir Controversy (CPS) - It could be called the beer that made Nigeria famous. But it is being called offensive and racist. The Stroh Brewing Company recently ran an advertisement depicting the beer-drinking habits of the Kofyar tribe of Nigeria in 65 newspapers. Students at Kent State University were among the first to boycott the beer until the company made an appropriate apology for what they called a "bigoted and insensitive ad." James Telisky, Stroh's advertising manager disclaimed any intent to offend viewers and

that he was "sorry to learn the interpretation of this particular vignette assumed that Stroh's created an ad uncomplimentary to the black race." Stroh's intends to run a monthly series of 11 ads, each representing a different race, to be published with the intent to make the messages "entertaining but accurate." The facts for the Nigerian ad were taken from an article in the Science Digest (February 1963) "Ancient Beverage Center of Cultural Focus," written by a Chicago anthropologist.

Do you know why I'm so happy9 because Circus Kirk is my family, because we made everyone smile I(iday and because I got to eat an awful lot of peanuts'. I don't know where to begin telling you about today. Everything was so fun and exciting. Hoy, mom, you would not believe all the work that has to be done when setting up a circus.

He's the greatest! Doc was saying, "We project these images of youth. We have new acts that have the old snap, bang and vitality. What happens inside the tent, we think comes very close to the real theatre. As a professor or in the role as an educator, I have absolutely unlimited belief in the abilities of young people to do things. All they need is an opportunity. I enjoy working with people in this age group. I relate to them." I can't think of a nicer man to work for. I heard Jackie Carter, a French Horn player in the band, say.

M emones By DEBBIE NORTHERN Her Field had its lacrosse cages exchanged for tents, food booths and campers for the all student circus, Circus Kirk, on October 5. '"Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen and children of all ages'" This traditional cry marked the beginning of the circus performance. Then the show began — with acrobats, jugglers, clowns, and stubborn trained animals. But have you ever wondered what happens AFTER the last show? Well several lx>ngwood students got a first hand chance to see and participate in the Final Act — the clean-up crew. As the smell of freshly popped popcorn fades, the brass band packs up anu the performers change, the hardy clean-up crew went to work taking down the bleachers, wrapping up ropes, and, finally, to roll up the Big Top and help hoist the large canvas onto the truck. All this activity lasted about an hour and a half — with the pay at $1.50. A lot of hard work for little? ... don't bet on it. The volunteer's consensus was that it was most educational to see what kind of work needs to be done at a Circus, something other people have no chance to see. In fact, some of the L.C. workers thought helping out was so much fun that they considered running away with the Circus. Unfortunately no one quite filled the qualifications of a trombone player or any assistant electrician — which were the services Circus Kirk needed. One girl offered to try learning the trombone "real quick." For those of you who just were entertained by Circus Kirk, you really missed an interesting experience. The Big Top came down with a whoosh ... the Circus got picked up and packed up . . . ready for its six o'clock departure time. The next day Her was restored to its soccer and lacrosse functions. And I — however much I wanted to — could not drag myself from sleep to wave goodby to Lisa the Elephant.

Courts Rule One-Year Probation For Peterson By DEBBIE MOUL Karl Peterson's case came before Prince Edward County Court Friday, Oct. 21. Mr. Boswell, Peterson's lawyer motions to Karl and together they approach the table and sit down. Commonwealth Attorney, William F. Watkins sits to the left. Ix)ngwood College Campus Policeman, Officer Webb and Prince Edward County Police officer, John Hickman sit to the right. Judge Hay presides. The charge is stated-control and possession of marijuana. The trial is underway. An affidavit, a sworn statement in writing, is needed and must be filed in order to issue a search warrant, a legal writ authorizing an officer to take action as in making an arrest, se:zure or search. Karl's lawyer, Boswell charged that such a warrant was not made. It was later stated that an affidavit was indeed filed in the district court but not in the circuit court. Several texts were cited regarding laws or cases concer .ed with search and seizure. Boswell stated that the warrant is to say exactly what and why the search is being conducted. Judge Hay responded by saying that the issue now is not the validity of the search warrant. "Whether he (Karl) has been prejudiced or not is the issue." A search warrant must state that the thing searched for constitutes evidence for the commission of the offense. Commonwealth Attorney,

Lisa Hughes, cast as Rita, assumes the role of a lonely, sensual woman of substantial wealth who, although she provides Allmers financial stability, is actually an upsetting force to her husband's quiet, introverted world. Asta, played by Juliana Worsham, is Allmers' sympathetic half-sister who, because she processes the capacity for maternal empathy that Rita lacks, becomes a surrogate mother for their crippled child Little Eyolf portrayed by 12 year old Clifford Peale. Doug Massey, as Borheim, pursues Asta hoping to marry her but is kept from this because of her steadfast allegience to her half brother and his son. The last role and perhaps one of the most haunting is that of the Rat Wife, played by Barbara Wood. The "shriveled," Pied Piper ridder of Rats, is a folk figure type who is certainly symbolic of the guilt and hate the parents feel for the child and more generally, of the instinctual forces that cause the characters to change. Now that the characters have been psychologically sketched and assembled in place, it only remains for you to take your place as an audience and watch them become undone. Dr. Paton Lockwood of the department describes the play as one that, J&W SALES COMPANY Lynchburg, Va. "strips away the masks these people wear."

Reverse Discrimination In Bakke Case

Longwood Players

Present "Little Eyolf" By BRIDGET SCHERZ Before Fall Break when the outbound all-of-us were either sitting around on suitcases procrastinating away those last few days until Friday or scrambling frantically through Mid-terms, there were some students looking beyond the week long pause to early December and the next theatrical production in Jarman. Crew chiefs, technical workers, cast, and stage personnel were chosen that week for Danish playwright Henrik Ibsen's play "Little Eyolf" to be produced Dec. 7-10 by the 1,-ongwood Players and the Department of Speech and Dramatic Arts. "Little Eylof" is the ninth in a series of twelve "cycle plays" in which Ibsen explores various levels of human experience through the medium of the stage. This particular slice of experience focuses on what happens when a quiet, introspective individual is confronted with physical and psychological dilemmas. This first character, Allmers, portrayed by Ken Neimo, is a bookish, self-defined "meditative man" who holds a grand opinion of his own intellectual prowness. As a man never faced with pressure, he is adept at saying the "right thing at the right time" and it is in this self-wrought facade of the rock-solid intellectual that lies the potential dangerousness of his character. In the wake of the incedents that touch him in the play however,

Blue And White Spirit Prevails

IIIIIIIII Hi I III illlilll

By DEBBIE NORTHERN Visitors, students, and staff enjoyed the festive air of Oktoberfest Weekend. Children of all ages smiled and laughed at the antics of the 21 crazy Klowns, played Mdway games, and ate everything from hot dogs to cotton candy. The day was filled with exciting events, such as the H20 Shows, a hockey game, puppet shows, music and color rush. Even Count Dracula made an appearance on the Midway. One of the most popular Midway events was the "Dunking Booth", where members of the staff and student volunteers were periodically immersed in water by zealous Softball throwers. This activity provided a marvelous opportunity for students to take out hostilities on their teachers or get back at one of their friends. Those persons sitting precariously over the water certainly did their best to provoke the throwers, suggesting that they get glasses or putting down their athletic abilitities. Most of the throwers were able to make them swallow their words, or at least a mouthful of water.

Some other Midway games tested basketball and golf skills. Of course, if one wished to take a break from the Midway, he could always refresh himself in the Beer Garden. No one had to ask where it was located, they just followed the steady stream of beer lovers up to the Dining Hall roof. Spirits ran high as the Reds, Greens, and Blues competed in a variety of events at Color Rush. Such antics as the Klowns trotting and skipping around the field in the relay kept the tension of rivalry from getting too intense. But still all the teams energetically passed mattresses over their heads, threw water ballons, ran on 'three legs" and sorted shoes. Everyone particpating had a good time. Oktoberfest night closed with the Alumni Chi Walk and everyone's favorite occupation, eating the immense clown cake. As long as Oktoberfest remains a part of tangwood, spirit and friendly competition will prevail, provding an entirely unique atmosphere to the college campus.

Skits Climax Weekend By LISA CUMBEY After an exhausting day of competing in the Color Competition, watching the water shows and hockey game, shopping and playing games at

booths, listening to the band concert and just mingling in a crowd estimated at 4,000 people and joining in the other festivities of Octoberfest, hundreds of people packed Jarman Hall to

)ebbie. Jo, And Dave view the Red and Green skits Saturday night. In the skits, the scripts, songs, music, sets, costumes — everything is created by the students particpating. The skits are also the last phase in the Color Competition. Send in the Klowns! And that they did to open the show. The Klowns did stunts and just plain acted crazy to get laughs from the audience. Linda Crovatt, Klown Advisor as a member of Geist, was herded to the stage and given a gift for giving such great moral support to the Klowns in those long nights of practice and throughout Octoberfesi, and for being "one hell of a girl." The ushers and usherettes welcomed the audience and put everyone in a German spirit by doing a German dance. Erom some of the steps executed in the dance, I gathered that these people must be very coordinated. The Green and White skit was performed first. It was about life, and which road in life you (Self) would take: good or evil. Some of the evils portrayed in the skit, such as Vanity, Hatred, Snobbishness, Jealousy and others were reflected in Self. But Innocence, represented by sparkling children, was also a part of Self. Parts of the skit were humorous (Twofaced Linda Paschall's "OH GROSS!"), but most of the skit was very deep and moralistic. Self eventually cast aside Temptation and joined Innocent. Which path would you have taken? The Klowns came on again, after playing games with the children in the audience. (I overheard one Klown asking a little boy, "Do you remember where you were sitting??") They did stunts such as dive rolls over five people, cartwheels, back flips, etc. Then came the big moment: Squash. Squash is the

21 klown pyramid. With Linda Crovatt kneeling on stage in front of them, talking them through it, they attempted this great feat, but failed on the first try. One of the klowns shouted, iiet's hold it for the cameras!" and they tried again and almost made it, but not quite. On the third try, they did it — that 21 klown pyramid was up! After the Klowns finished jumping around congratulating each other came the Red and White skit. Theirs was a very touching story of a "thirteen year old woman" trying to decide where she belonged; outside romping around on the baseball field and eating ice cream with the other kids or reading etiquette books and improving her posture. Nelly, portrayed by Gay Kampfmueller, finally decided with a little persuasion from Polly (Susan White) and a tantasical trip to a place that was much like a picture she had painted "a long time ago, when she was a child," where there were children playing games, to not try to give up youth too soon, to take one day at a time. Tension was rising as the audience waited for the judges to tally the scores and announce the winner. Since all of the other competitions of the day had tallied to a 324-324 tie, the winner of the skits would decide the over-all winner of the fextival. The Red and Whites won the skits with 954 points, causing utter pandemonium from the Senior and Sophomre classes. Following the skits was the annual alumni Chi walk and the cutting of the Oktoberfest cake (which weighed somewhere around 400 pounds). This ended the events of the day and the Oktoberfest week end. Everyone retired exhausted and drained, but elated with the fact that Oktoberfest der Geist was again a success.

Voit scored again early in the second half. Unfortunately L.C. failed to keep up their momentum, allowing Westhampton to score three quick goals. The game officials arranged a playoff on penalty corners, where each team would have three corners in which to try to score. Terry Donahue scored a goal on Lon^wood's first corner. Westhampton was unable to score due to Ix>ngwood's fine

defensive play. Therefore Ix)iigwood took a 4-3 victory. The JV defeated Westhampton by a score of 2-0. Debi Kinzel and Suzanne Ash each popped in a goal. I,ongwood took double victories over I.ynchburg. Terry Voit scored both goals in the 2-0 win for the varsity, while Jackie Steer scored one goal and Debi Kinzel scored two in the 3-1 JV win. During Oktoberfest, Ixmgwood defeated the Virginia Beach Club 2-0 before a large crowd of spectators. Terry Voit and Juli Dayton each popped in a goal. The Beach Club graciously agreed to play a 20 minute game with the JV team, which ended in a scoreless tie. The Varsity now stands at 6-2 and the JV at 4-1. Today both teams will travel to take on Virginia Commonwealth University. Thursday they go away to Old Dominion University.

Soccer Loses Two Matches, Beats Mary Washington By Margaret Hammersley On the road last Saturday at Lynchburg College, a crippled soccer team struggled against the JV Hornets, losing 1-5. Absent from the starting line were Kevin Bedworth and Jack Thomas, out on leg and knee injuries. Two reserve fullbacks, Sherif Benshai and T. C. Jones, started on either side of Dunn, who was "playing half speed at best" due to an ankle iniurv. On the forward line. Mark Conte at left outside was suffering a bruised thigh. Coach Williamson cited one problem as having 'not enough people skilled in two or three positions," yet commended the men on their efforts. During the game's first half, the halves and fulls were "not getting the ball to the offensive people." Yet during the second half, the ball was in position, but the offense was not downfield quickly enough. Williamson added that "Lynchburg's offense overloaded us," with eight men forward. Dominating the play, Lynchburg allowed Ixmgwood only two shots on goal, both taken in the second half. With 15:25 into the first half, Lynchburg's

Taylor, assisted by Henry, scored the game's first goal. Assisted by Pelletier, Taylor again scored on a fantastically executed cross at the end of the half. In the second half, after 3:30 off the clock a huddle of reds and blues formed before the Ixmgwood goal. Among locking kleats, Forrester slipped the ball in for Lynchburg's third goal. On an assist by Forrester, Taylor scored his third and Lynchburg's fourth goal. As Goalie Link attempted to slap the ball out of the goal, he and Taylor collided in the air, and the ball bounced in. Working the right side of the field, wing Komornik scored Ixmgwood's one goal on an assist from Hunt on the outside. The goal was timed at seven minutes into the half. The final goal, at 12:10. was scored by Lynchburg's Pelletier, assisted by Forrester. Tomorrow the team travels to once again face Mary Washington.

Will The Real "Woody" Please Stand Up By DEBBIE NORTHERN Did you happen to catch that sign with a blue woodpecker on it declaring the fighting Woodies, that was in the Dining Hall a few weeks ago? There seems to be mystery over who derived this possible new nickname for I-ongwood and we made the sign. No one rumored to have been the inventor of the "Woodies" will admit they had anything to do with it. Several Faculty members commented that they saw Dr. Bill McAdams, a member of the Physical Education Department, bring copies of the "Woody" sign to a faculty meeting a few weeks ago. Coach Dick Williamson, Mr. Tom Steinocher, and Dr. Judy Johnson all verified the fact that McAdams brought the signs into I he meeting. Dr. Johnson claims that she was given the designs by McAdams for submission to the nickname committee, but is uncertain where he obtained the name. When questioned, McAdams replied that he denied wanting the Woodies as a college nickname or having anything to do with the sign. McAdams said his suggestions were the Saints, Cardinals, and I.ions. He also said that he had received a memorandum asking him to rank some proposed suggestions in order of his preference or submit his own. McAdams stated that a contest, sponsored by the media should be held to select a nickname, involving the students, alumni, and community. He feels a symbol should be originated to promote school spirit and to be used on fund raising projects. Another "Woody" suspect, Mr. George Bristol. Director of the I.ongwood Foundation, also denied having thought up the name, although he says he likes II He feels the negative feelings expressed by the students for the name "stimualtes interest" and will net the students involved with having a nickname chosen. Bristol added that if people do not like the Woodpecker symbol, it could be changed to something like a woodsman. A finger was also pointed at Registrar. Colonel Ray Gilchrist. He claimed not to know where the nickname originated, but that he had heard it brought up before. Gilchrist believes the nickname to be a "goodone". He also has no idea who did the "Woody" [Mister, and says that it is a "big mystery"'. At the time, an Ad HocCommittee of the Intercollegiate Athletic Committee is considering a list of names submitted by students, alunuii. and faculty. The Committee members are Dr. Carolyn Wells, Mr. Michael Barree. Mr. Emeric Noone, Jr., Dr. Shirley O'Neil. and student Dee Donnalh According to Dr. O'Neil. the Ad Hoc Committee will present a list of choices to the Intercollegiate Athletic Council, who in turn will send them to the Board of Visitors for selection of a school nickname. I Van Wells stated that the list includes the suggestions voted upon last year from the student body. She added that the Committee must present the selections to the Board

November 4. The Board will decide on the college nickname. Dr. T. C. Dalton says the four nicknames which have been brought up will be taken to the coaches for review and that a visual for each will be drawn up. The IA.C. will meet November 2. Dr. O'Neil felt that the "Woody" sign was just a move by Woodie partisans to see the student reaction. The names being considered are the Lions, Blue Jays, Blue Jackets, and the Fighting Woodies according to a Committee member.

It seems that no one wants to own up to originating the nickname "Woodies", which has just come into contention this year, nor seem to be sure who came up with the name.

FROM THE EDITOR . . Pecker Power ? At the moment, no one wants to take credit for the origination of "The Fighting Woodies" as our mascot. I can't blame them. Longwood needs a mascot, but does Longwood need, much less deserve, the Woodies? It would seem that with such a name tacked on to our athletics, we would be subject to a bit of ridicule. The most obvious ridicule, which would take only a short time to develop, would be the replacement of the Woodies with the Peckers. What a heyday other college newspapers would have with a name like the Woodies: "Peckers Splintered By. . .," "W oodies Pecked Down One By One," "Woodies' Feathers Ruffled." And on the sidelines its, "Angered Pecker Coach Flies the Coop!" After hockey games will the opponents huddle and chant "Thank you Longwood" — or will they huddle and chant "Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!" As the deadline nears, will we be doomed as "the fighting woodies"?. . . How does that cheer go, "Rah! Rah! Rah! Peck 'em in the knee

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Joan Speaks Out On Wood pec ker§ Dear Editor, Faculty, Students and Staff, I have been here a long time ... I have seen Ixmgwood make many changes and have stood by without murmuring a word. I have borne many indignities — been rolled, turned, and been "ridden on a pony." Have I complained? Now, I realize the school needs a nickname, like other colleges. The students last year came up with a few reasonable choices, but not everyone could agree on a name, so the issue was not settled. But now one man has come onto the campus and without even asking me or the student body, has chosen a nickname for the college — the Woodies. Well now I think it is time I spoke up! 1 have stood for the spirit and love of Ix)ngwood too long to be disregarded entirely as a patron — and replaced by a BIRD. Really - tell me truly Would you like to see me replaced by a statue of a woodpecker to greet visitors to the Rotunda.' With All My Ix>ve, Joan of Arc, "Joanie" (as told to Debbie Northern i

Slater Food Complaint

t« HA HA /M »M HA'

THKKOTl'NDA

Dear Editor, Concerning the Slater Food Service, we are sick of finding hair within the food itself. Contrary to Mr. Klassan's belief, most of the hair has not been found on top of the food (which would indicate the waitresses' fault), but cooked within the food product. This would indicate that it was some fault of the people who prepare the food. We would like to site an example which occurred on Monday. October 17. at dinner: Out of a table of seven people, two people found hair in the sparerib sauce, and one found hair entwined in the I-ondon broil. If this was an infrequent occurrance we would not | complain because we realize the

difficulties in institutional food preparation, however; when a minority of the students find this occurring at least once a week, we feel it must be brought to the attention of the Student body. This problem has already been brought to Mr. Klassan's attention who seemed not to care and shrugged us off. If the head of the food service will not make any effort to better this situation, then who will look out for all the students' health. We would like to suggest the following: 1. The waitresses could wear their hair off their shoulders and away from their faces. 2. Hairnets should be worn by

ALL Slater employees. We urge the students to alert Mr. Klassan if any similar problems arise at their tables so that this problem can bo extinguished. Sincerely. Those who are concerned with what goes into their food, Elise A. Canty Ix>ri J. Morgan Cathy A. Powell NOTE : A copy of this letter was sent to: President Willett Mr. Frank Klassan Dining Hall Committee Prince Edward Health Dept.

Absentee Ballot Voting Week The week of October 24-28 has been designated "Absentee Ballot Voting Week" on Virginia's 48 public college campuses by Students for Bonds, a statewide student organization promoting passage of the proposed $125 million bond referendum on November 8. Over 200 student volunteers will take part in activities which, according to state co-chairmen Ken Geroe and Steve Mahan, are the culmination of a three-step process begun last June. "To date, our activities in this campaign have been to inform students of the importance of the passage of this referendum and of the importance of registering to vote," Geroe said. "None of this work becomes meaningful, however, until the student actually registers his or her opinion by voting," he said. "We believe that just about every student who does vote will vote in favor of these five bond proposals. Our task, then, is to turn out this vote." Mahan said. Since most students will vote by

absentee ballot, "we arc giving special emphasis to this area of the campaign in order to make the absentee ballot voting process as easy as possible for all involved." he added. Activities during the week will include notices in the college media regarding procedures for absentee voting, posters and flyers publicizing these procedures, rallies, tables and boothes around the campus, and a special activity to "celebrate" the end of the week's activities on the 28th. •"We are very proud of the way students all across the Commonwealth have devoted Iheir energy, talent and enthusiasm to insure Unsuccessful outcome of this referendum,'' Mahan and Geroe staled, adding, "If we can Continue to get our message across we feel confidenl thai Virginians of all background! will join with these young people in registering their approval ol these bonds at the polls on November 8."
