New Approach To Resident System By J. TRIMBLE Traditionally (or as a matter of necessity) the first days at I-ongwood each fall are full of small matters such as arranging furniture, visiting friends, unpacking, registration and the election of hall presidents. What a wonderful relief to have the last mentioned activity removed from everyone's busy social schedule! I am speaking about the welcome surprise of having an •R.A." (Resident Assistant! assigned to every floor when we returned to school last fall. Although some people may have first experienced a negative reaction to the existence of R.A.s, I think that we all have come to realize that these are responsible people who have been carefully chosen to do a job, and for the most part they do it well. I. for one, am glad to see people getting paid and receiving recognition

for a job which is at once both demanding and occassionalh thankless. The role of Hall President was rather ambiguous. There were many problems such as: 1 the election of friends' rather than responsible people. 2 feelings of animosity when your friend had to give you a warning Of had to turn you in, 3. lack of authority and backing from both the students and dean*. Perhaps the institution iÂťl W.A s doesn't solve all problem*. I>ut through this action the administration is trying to better serve the students and the college itself. As with all changes there is a period of adjustment which is necessary. Also, the range of authority and specific duties of the R.A.s could not be completely determined until we, as Dean Heintz stated, "got our feet wet." Having now almost completed (Continued on Page 8) *

MISS LONGWOOD 1979

Julianna Byrd Worsham By SHARON JANOVICH "Ladies and gentlemen, tonight we are proud to present to you our ten lovely contestants...", began Charlie Mason, Master of Ceremonies for this year's pageant. He indeed fulfilled the introduction by presenting ten lovely ladies for the Miss longwood Pageant of 1979. The pageant began on an enjoyable, hand-clapping note, with the contestants and escorts dancing to "Love Is Everywhere" by John Denver. What a beautiful finish it was to see ten smiling young ladies up in

their escorts' arms! Next on the agenda was the Personality Competition, which displayed each contestant in the attire which complemented her hobby or personality. After a brief speech and parade of contestants, the talent competition was yet to come. Besides having pleasant personalities, the ten contestants displayed overwhelming talent, for the next 30 minutes or so. Contestant No. 1, Carol Brooks, sang a beautiful a'cappella selection to display her obvious talent in voice. She was followed by a self-choreographed modern

dance to "Philadelphia Morning", by Contestant No. 2, Ellen Hitt. Andrea Mott then sang "Bless the Beasts and the Children", which exhibited the flowing voice possessed by Miss Mott, who is a music major. A combination baton-twirling dance followed, which was presented by Cindy Carneal. This routine was done to the contemporarv selection "September", by "Earth, Wind and Fire". Art Major Liz Jones displayed various examples of her art talent, as well as a self-composed

her played a piano medley and then

Next, a music-dance routine was presented by Juliana Worsham to "Wouldn't It Be I-overly" from "My Fair I^dy". The character presented by Miss Worsham immediately captured the heart of the audience, as well as displaying the talent possessed by Miss Worsham. Little Orphan Annie", by James Whitcomb Riley, was then recited by Cindy Jones, which held the audience's attention and proved to be enjoyable entertainment as well. Contestant No. 8, Jane Bruce

presented a self-choreographed dance to Duke Ellington's "Dancer's in I-ove". Anita Hed was next on the agenda with a Dramatic monologue Miss Hed presented a dramatic reading from Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew". Contestant No. 10, Carol Mclntosh finished up the talent category by singing "Send in the Clowns" by Steven Sondheim.

Press Conference Discusses Registration By MELODY CRAWLEY Registration was the major topic of discussion at the semester's second Press Conference. March 8, in the Lower Dining Hall. Stuart B. Tennant, Registrar, was on hand to explain the changes to be made in the registration process Tennant explained that the most important thing for a student to do in preparing for preregistration this month is to (heck with Mom and Dad" to make sure their $100 fee is paid.

He also welcomed the students • to the computer society that you were born into," which will hopefully improve the confusing and hectic process (see article explaining registration in this issue). Tennant also explained that the diplomas would not show the graduate's major. He explained, however, that the graduate's permanent record that is sent out confers their degree. He also confirmed the fact that diplomas are received at graduation.

Father Burghardt On Return Visit By CINDY CUMMINS One of the college's favorite visiting scholars, Father Walter Burghardt. will be making a return visit to (dogwood Campus Thursday and Friday, March 29 and :<0. The first "theologian in residence" in Georgetown University's 189-year history. Father Burghardt is not only a noted professor and historical theologian, but an author as well. His works have appeared in various publications from the 'Encyclopedia Britannica" to \ iri'etj " The

numerous

awards, including the Cardinal Spellman Award for outstanding contributions in theoloe.\. Father Burghardt holds

nine honorary degrees. Now resigned from formal teaching in order to devote more time to research, writing and lecturing, his work presently concentrates upon three books and 10 articles. A Roman Catholic priest of the rigorous Jesuit Order. Burghardt is described by Dr. Rosemary Sprague of the English Department as "... a brilliant intellect with a delightful sense of humor." A man who exudes genuine warmth and concern, she adds that he is "a man who wears his learning lightly " First engaged by Dr. Sprague lor the Jarman Lecture Series, Father Burghardt previously visited I-ongwood in 1964. 1966 ami again in 1968 — an indication of his constant popularity. His particular interest in history stems from a belief that it is a subject which not only enlightens the past and present and therefore, future of individuals and nations, but that it is a subject which serves as "an antidote to discouragement and despair." Sponsored by the IRC in conjunction with the Department of English and Philosophy, the title of Burghardt's lecture is Look, Love, Laugh; an Approach to Anxiety." He will also serve as guest speaker in various classes while visiting on campus. A fascinating man of exceptional intellect, warmth and humor, his is a visit you won't want to miss.

Faculty Colloquium Scheduled For Tonight From Public Relations The Umgwood College Faculty Colloquium lecture by Thomas P. Burke. Jr.. originally scheduled for February 7 but postponed because of snow, has been rescheduled for Wednesday evening. March 14.at 7.30 p.m. in Molnar Recital Hall. Wygal Building The public is cordially invited to hear Burke discuss Patrick H. Pearse, Irish Revolutionary Pedagogue." Burke describes Pearse as a man of action and of ideas." As educational leader and critic. Pearse played I major role in the cultural nationalism of Ireland during the early years of the 20th

century. Burke will discuss Pearse's "incisive criticism of the existing system of F.nglish dominated education in Ireland during the period 1900-1916 and his concept of a desirable replacement for it." A member of the Ixmgwood faculty since 1968. Burke holds the B.A degree from the College of William and Mary and the M.Ed, from the University of Virginia. He taught in the public schools of Colonial Heights and Dinwiddie County and was a supervisor for the State Department of Education before coming to ixmgwood.

Following the usual format. President Henry I. Willett Jr. answered the questions compiled by Legislative Board before opening the floor for questions. He reported in answer to a question concerning the basketball team's accident that a new van had been ordered in January. The van should be here sometime in April. Another question posed was concerning the status of Her Gym. The lights will be installed as soon as the weather clears, however, plans for a track were discarded. The track would cut the two intermural fields in half. The President also announced that upon completion of the new gym, Her will be converted into a math and computer science building. The only drawback to the plan will be if the state does not put up the $650,000 required. Her gym will be closed for nonI-ongwood students starting this week. There have been a lot of problems with non-Longwood residents, therefore, there will be no guests allowed. President Willett hopes that the situation will be solved, but he did agree that they have to return to the policy of hiring a student to check I.D.'s at the door. He also reported that the admission standards have not dropped within the last year. He stated that if anything, they were more selective. The remainder of the questions submitted by Legislative Board had to do with athletics. Dr. T. C. Dalton. Administrative Assistant to the President, stated that the eligibility to participate was that the student must be a i Continued on Page 8)

Dr. Ford stated that many inside and outside factors influence a child's accomplishments at school. Some exigenous factors he listed were improper educational management, family problems.

What Pooh Went Through By TERRY KEESEE and AMY WILSON On Wednesday, March 7, a group of sophomores journeyed to Richmond for the annual Sophomore Road show. This years production was "Pooh Goes Visiting And Gets Into a Tight Spot "The first stop was the Virginia Randolph School, where the group entertained a crowd of approximately 100 children. The clowns got the show started as they ran into the auditorium blowing their whistles, passing out candy, and making them laugh with their crazy antics. The skit was then performed with everyone helping Pooh get out of his tight delema. The show ended as the children joined the cast

unrealistic expectations and an unstimulating family life in which the parents do not care about their child's education. Indigenous factors included chronic frequently recurring physical problems, specific sensory defects, such as hidden deafness, handicapping neurologic and neuromuscular problems, and mental retardation. Some of these factors may be alleviated or an adjustment can be made to better help the child scholastically. Problems may also arise from an improper diet. A case Ford used as an illustration was a sixyear-old child who was brought into his office by her mother. The child was thin, irritable, had a poor appetite, and was not doing well at school. It was discovered after a period of recording what the child ate. that she was a sugar addict. After a diet readjustment she was "a different kid, she felt better." Ford stated that this case showed "the importance of looking at a (Continued on Page 7)

Vanities Is Coming By GWEN POINTER and TRICIA WHITEHURST Vanities, a Ixingwood Players Production, will be performed in Jarman Auditorium on April 4-7, 8 p.m. The play was written by Jack Heifner, and is one of the most popular plays performed today. There are only three characters in the play, all of which are young women who have been best friends since high school. The characters of Joanne, Mary, and Kathy are played by I-ongwood students Karen Wood, Lisa Hughes, and Kathy Sowers, respectively. Karen Wood is a twentyfour year old Speech Pathology major. Her home is in

Diggs, Virginia, and she is a junior at Ixmgwood. Lisa Hughes, also a junior, is a twenty-one year old Dramatic Arts major from Chesapeake. Virginia. Kathy Sowers is an eighteen-year old freshman. She is a business administration major from Richmond, Virginia. Being able to cheer is a major necessity for this production, a Challenge in which the girls have no previous experience. Noticing in tryouts that the girls had no cheerleading experience, Reeny Manley volunteered to be the choreographer for the show. She is a twenty-one year old Dramatic Arts major from New I/ondon, North Carolina. Even

though Miss Manley has much background as a cheerleader, she was apprehensive when she first took the position. Now she is confident that her students will perform well on stage. Miss Manley's responsibilities include coordinating movements to songs, teaching specific cheers and actions, and conditioning the actresses for their routines. Miss Manley feels that though cheerleading is often compared to dance, the two are quite different. She expressed that "cheerleading requires more energy than grace, and the motions are not as hard to teach as the enthusiasm." The actresses think that the most difficult aspects of the cheering are coordination, balance, and rhythm. Karen Wood also expressed concern over appearing too superficial on stage. She is attempting to be "peppy and smile without seeming plastic." Lisa Hughes feels that Reeny Manley has been very helpful, but there are areas S-UN's Spotlight Concert on April 1 will feature David Wingo in the of cheerleading that Miss Manley Gold Room.

FROM THE EDITOR... Have you noticed the change in the weather? Or did you think that the ten inches of snow on the ground two weeks ago were barricades to keep us from going to classes? Ahh — Spring time! There are many things that bring the season of spring to mind — other than the missing snow and Spring Break. Baseball season is now in full swing. Golf is now in progress. Lacrosse is gearing up for its season as well as tennis and archery. But sports are not the only thing that signifies spring. There is the wonder of nature. Nature is the best indicator of the changing seasons. The grass grows green and thick, trees begin to bring forth new leaves, birds return from their southern winter home, flowers appear from the once frozen earth. People, as if they were hibernating bears, find themselves outdoors once again.

urn; its (III Speaks l)t;ir Editors: In the List two issues of THE ItOTUNDA, letters have appeared making specific references to the source of the destruction on Longwood's campus. This is an example of what has been going on here for weeks. This attitude of mutual blame does nothing to help the situation at l-ongwood. In spite of all the good things I hat have occurred recently on campus, such as the deist Bloodmobilc and the Muscular Dyslropln Dance Marathon. which tend to unify the student IMMIV, there is still division on the object of campus destruction. What has occurred on campus is a result of thoughtlessness on everyone's part. It is time to stop bickering and to start working together for a better Ixmgwood.

Sincerely, CHI of 1979 Spirited Sophomore Thanked hear Editor. We are writing in concern to the article in last week's paper

about Sophomore Week. We believe an error has been made. It is our opinion that credit should have been given to a person that greatly contributed to its success. This person spent many long frustrating hours preparing for its events. Although she was let down many times by her fellow classmates she kept her spirits high and still patiently and faithfully sacrificed her time and talents, determined to carry on the Sophomore tradition. This person is Donna Hughes. Thanks for all the signs, Roadshow work, auction and all the other minute details that went along with these events. It wouldn't have happened without you. Thanks Donna! We love you. Friends Bookstore Defended To The Editor: I think it's about time that someone wrote in defense of those who work in the bookstore and are forced to put up with certain people's childish antics. A letter was printed in the February 27th issue of this paper concerning a policy dealing with the way in which a number must be written on checks. It was a fairly decent letter, as far as it goes, but it didn't tell the whole story.

Why does this annual phenomenon draw us to the outdoors and away from our books? Why is it that spring is a rival to fall beauty? Spring signifies new life. Perhaps that is why we rush outside to soak up those first few days of warmth. One might say we are "Spring Cleaning" — ridding ourselves of somewhat stale air and those winter blues. HOWEVER — from several sources in and around Longwood, there is a possibility of a snow storm before the week is out. Now, after you have had your "break down", start praying that it will not happen. If you are like most people, Spring Break is the most important thing on your mind. Books have been tossed aside, the spring and summer clothing have been brought out for the upcoming days on the beach. But if you happen to be one of those "poor souls" who have not noticed the change in the weather or is unable to get outside, take heart. Spring Break is, afterall, only three days away. PEJ

The first thing is he didn't stop to ask why sevens must be written a certain way. This was not Mr. Harper's idea, the bank he deals with had asked him to have us write them in standard fashion because, otherwise, they could be, and quite often are, mistaken for and recorded as fours. This has a tendency to create many problems when the bank's totals don't equal the bookstore's totals, as anyone who has taken accounting can tell you. Seconly, the letter did not relate to us how, instead of merely voiding the check and writing a new one, he tore it up. scattered the pieces to the four winds and pranced around like a six-year old having a temper tantrum, shouting obscenities at anyone affiliated with the bookstore. I ask you. is this any way for a "mature adult" to deport himself in public? Have you no self-respect?

You would probably see graceful Ixmgwood ladies in uniform green heading to one of the three or four classes they attended per semester. Invariably, you might notice the absence of many present landmarks—the familiar structures which now dot the campus were then, not even imagined. In particular, you might notice the absence of one very familiar structure, the Dabney I^ancaster Library. Though Longwood survived more than 100 years without library facilities, the future libraries' existence was early foreshadowed. It was at its present location that the cornerstone of the college was laid after the college charter was granted in 1839. The present structure did not become a reality until 1939. By 1875, the need for library facilities was becoming more and more evident. The Farmville Female College Catalogue announced that, "The formation of a library has commenced". In 20 years time a reading room and small library had been established. Described by the 1895 catalog as a "...working library, not

large..." the library was considered to be "particularly well equipped in American History" in order to excite interest in that area. It was at that time, only a few rooms forming part of the college's original structure. In 1901 a $20,000 appropriation enabled the construction of an additional 3-story west wing. The library and the "not quite 5,000 volumes" of which it consisted were located on the 2nd floor. Now a State Female Normal College, I/)ngwood had acquired library facilities which it considered only "fairly good." A large 4 story brick building which no longer stands was completed in 1903. This building housed a kindergarten, a Training school, classroom and dorm area and the library which was relocated on 3rd floor. By 1908, the library had surpassed its 5,000 volumes including 450 volumes of fiction. Providing references from Zoology to Pedozozy and Domestic science. Its purpose was to form of itself "a literary workshop. "I^ater a geography classroom would be converted to a reference room enlarging the libraries' capacity to 15,000 volumes. Its hours, taylored to the curfew and resident rules of the day were from 9 a.m.-8:50

The computer will then generate student schedules. 5) On the assigned date, forms on the student schedule calendar, go to the Registrar's Office and pick up the completed schedule. If there are no conflicts, pocket it and do not worry about it until August. 6) If the computer finds a conflict in your schedule, it will be printed on the individual

How does the student suddenly go about registering for classes in this totally new method? According to Stuart Tennant, IiOngwood Registrar, it follows this way: 1) Check your class rank this week. There will be a list, by class rank on the bulletin board outside the registrar's office this

p.m. on weekdays and 1:45-5 p.m. on Saturdays. 1929 revealed a need to again relocate the growing stacks of books which were rapidly filling the alloted space. At that time, a $75,000 conditional appropriation

Federal and State money had been provided and on August 22, 1938. the first bricks of the present building were put in place. The $32,000 library, equipped to house 50,000 books was eventually completed in 1939

was made for the purpose of constructing a new building—a permanent home for the expanding library. But planning came to a sudden halt due to hovering depression and did not resume again for years. Finally, plans for the new library resumed. Additional

The foresighted proposal of Longwood's fifth president. Dabney S. I^ncaster made in 1959 acknowledged that "A good library is the most important facility for good college teachers and good college students." Again the library was out growing its quarters, a fact which led to the libraries eventual

rennovation in 1960 and the addition of 3 more levels to the rear of the building. Firmly established, the library had found a permanent home. In 1962 it acquired a name as well, having been dedicated to

President I,aneaster Years of persistant planning and hard work had reaped full benefit—the Dabney S. I-ancaster Library. Today under the guidance of Mrs. Martha I-oStourgeon and her staff, the library continues, as she says, "to try to supply informational and recreational Continued on Page 8)

These will be available after noon-time March 15, 1979. 3) See your advisor and determine your class schedule. Leave it with him-her. The upper portion of the registration form will be filled out in ink. The lower portion, which resembles SAT or other optical scan tests, is filled out in No. 2 pencil lead by the student's advisor.

If this does not work, the student will then return to his advisor and choose an alternate course. This change will be recorded on an "Advisor Approval Form" to be completed and signed by the advisor. Tennant noted that "It is our hope that every student who participates in Advanced Registration will leave in May knowing that his schedule has been satisfactorily resolved.

might be the student who is an unclassified (i.e. non-degree seeking) student or summer school students (who does not advance register through their advisors. These students will participate in "on-line" registration, a procedure similar to the lankford system with its queues, however, this new form of registration will take place in Ruffner. Students attending summer school will register on the day preceding each session Sunday, June 10, and Wednesday, July 11. in the Registrar's Office This will be a short process whereby each student will register singly at a terminal in the office. This process is very short and is easier and more convenient than the previous card system. There are no present plans as to the order of registration according to class rank or alphabet. Mr. Tennant anticipates it will be a general line-up on a first-come, firstserved basis. He also pointed out that Ixuigwood students who

avail themselves of advance registration will have first choice and will be spared the queuing up in front of the Registrar's Office. August 28 will be a registration for unclassified students, and these who did not participate in the April Advance Registration. This also will be an on-line registration in the Registrar's Office. As of now. this plan will take the August registrant from Admissions to the Registrar's Office to the Business Office and to the lower dining hall for ID. cards. This new system has several advantages and promises to be an excellent one. Data will be more accurate, the usual running around should be eliminated, and classes will be guaranteed to those students who pay their advance deposits in spring and their balance due of tuition and fees over the summer. Another long term advantage concerns advisor-student relationships. With the new system, advisor and student relationships will become closer.

H20 Club Combines Modern Dance And Swimming By PATH K. CHAPMAN Have you ever seen synchronized swimming? Do you know what aquatic art is? Can you imagine routines that are like modem dance in the water? Routines that use special makeup, lighting, underwater props, and lots of imagination! If you should have to, unfortunately, answer "'No" to any one of these questions, then the H20 Club cordially invites you to our spring water show! Our theme for this year is "Kalidescope," which includes a unique variety of routines ranging from "The Ix>ne Ranger and Tonto" to "Third Dimension!" The H20 Club will give three, hour-long performances on April 4,5. and 7. All of these shows are at night and there is no admission charge! Times will be posted later. The members of the club

are super excited about the show! Believe me we have put many long, wet hours into making this a successful show! The routines consist of either synchronized swimming or aquatic art. Synchronized swimming deals with a variety of stunts with the music creating a mood. For example we have a "Disco" routine to the Commodores "Machine Gun." Another "synchro" type routine is set to the music "Autumn leaves." Aquatic Art deals with the telling of a story by using acting and swimming techniques.

The routine "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is the story expressed from Dukas' symphonic poem also entitled "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." Then there is a routine entitled "The Gold Miners," where you will just have to come to the show to see the story! Hard work has been put into the H20 Club's water show. Not only exhaustion of the body from all the swimming, but we have to use our imaginations! Because this show is written and performed for you, the student body's entertainment.

Observation Key (Continued from Page 2) child's diet." "The essence of nutrition is understanding what's in food and what it does in the body. It is more useful to know if it is good food than what group it is in," commented Ford. Hyperactive children may be the victim of an unsatisfactory diet. Certain foods can have an effect on children's stimulation. Ford feels that occasionally children are labeled as hyperactive when other disorders such as tiredness, anxiety, handicaps and medication may be to blame. In the afternoon. Dr. Michelle Irwin spoke on "The Eye of the Beholder." She said observation was very important in understanding young children. Teachers must practice how to properly observe children to get the maximum benefit. She gave five reasons why observation is important in the classroom. 1) It is a means for generating ideas. One must discover what the child is interested in pursuing in his spare time. 2) It is a means of answering specific questions, such as why children do not wish to do something. Teachers must

"influence a child's concept of himself as a learner." The child needs to have confidence in himself. 3) Observation provides a more realistic picture of events. 4) Observation helps to better understand children's behavior. Dr. Irwin said, "Children have their own style of learning." Some children must be shown how to do something, while others can be told. Dr. Irwin also stated that children's responses "tell you a great deal of where they are at." Children and adults sometimes have different concepts. 5) Observation is important means of evaluation. "You have to think about what you are preparing them (the children) for," Dr. Irwin commented. She hoped that teachers are preparing them for the 21st century, which is not in the distant future. Dr. Irwin's guidances for observation include a clear distinction between what is seen or heard, and the conclusions drawn, trying to interpret from the child's viewpoint rather than an adult's, not drawing unjustified conclusion, trying to observe specifics, be objective, and taking down basic information.

At the beginning of this semester meetings took place between Dear Heintz Residence Hoard, and the R.A.s' Area Coordinators Dean Heintz asked that each group meet separately to discuss what they viewed as their responsibilities ami also to set up guidelines for the handling of minor infractions In the K As I spoke with Dean Heintz and Ann Wyatt about the outcome of these meetings. Two major concerns arc the strengthening of Dorm Councils and the concurrent release of Residence Hoard's responsibility as far as enforcement and trials are involved.
