Freshman Class Has Many Achievements Eight hundred and nine new students moved to Ixmgwood, Thursday. Who are these students and where did they come from? According to figures from the Admission Office and the Vice President for

Administration, these students have proven themselves exceptional in honors, achievements, and ranking. Of the 809 students, 705 are entering as Freshmen, leaving 104 students classified as

Land Aquired The College received a bequest of $10,000 and two parcels of land in the town of Farmville this week. The bequest was made by Miss I^elia E. Robertson, a member of the Class of 1912. The first parcel of land consists of two lots on Second Avenue. The other is 15 or more acres located at the end of High Street. President Willett indicates that the size and location of the large tract have considerable value. No plans have been made for the usage of this gift. Miss Robertson's father was a former owner of a chemical plant in Farmville (Robertson's Chemical Co.), where the current Buffalo Shook Co. is located. He also owns similar plants in Blackstone and Norfolk. Known for many philantropic gestures, Miss Robertson showed a great interest in I-ongwood College. Several years ago, she gave Southside Hospital a large tract of land to assist in expanding their entrance to High Street. She also owned a large farm near Hampden-Sydney College called "Hard Times."

Board Approves Tournament Longwood's first Basketball Tournament sponsored by Miller Brewers will take place November 23-24. In their July meeting, the Board of Visitors approved the sponsorship of the tournament after a heated discussion with a 5-4 vote. Mrs. A.O. Mitchell, Rector of the board, cast the deciding vote after they voted 4-4 with two abstentions. President Henry I. Willett, Jr., informed the Board that the Miller Brewers had contacted the college several months ago through Coach Ronald Bash inquiring about sponsoring the tournament. Under Virginia law breweries had not been allowed to sponsor such events until a recent modification by the ABC Boards. According to Dr. T.C. Dalton, the Miller Company would pay the $3,000 expense of the

of their high school class. The most percentage of the students scored between 400-449 on the Verbal College Entrance Examination Board Scores (SAT) and between 450-499 on the Math SAT's. The entering Class of 1979-80 has also received many honors and achievements. Six students were recognized as National Merit Commended students. Other honors include four first honor graduates, six second honor graduates, six students who attended Governor's School for the Gifted, 15 delegates to Girl's State, six delegates to Boy's State and 124 honor society members. Among the achievers of the Class of 1983 are 30 yearbook editors, 13 Newspaper editors, 31 presidents of major high school organizations and 21 officers of major high school organizations. Also, 21 Senior Class Officers and 91 SCA officers and representatives.

tournament and for a Hospitality room to be provided for coaches, officials, dignitaries, and the press. Longwood will in turn provide the Hospitality room. The college will also host a one on-one tournament between games. The winner of this will go to the finals sponsored by Miller and the eventual winner will receive a scholarship. The opposition came mostly, however; to the name of the classic. In the agreement to be made with Miller, I-ongwood will share the billing with them. The name of the classic most likely being the Longwood-Miller Tournament. Board member, Mrs. E.A. West, expressed the most concern to the brewery sponsored event stating that there were ethics and morality involved. Mrs. West, along with I-ester E. Andrews, was deeply opposed to Longwood providing

advertisement for a beer company. When asked his opinion, President Willett stated that he was "not sure in the long run that the harm would be that great." He also added, "I wish it were other than a brewery." Roland E. Thompson provided the majority of spoken support. He stated that the Miller Company which is owned by Phillip Morris has done more for education than most companies its size. This is especially true in financial aid to students. Another Board Member, Ralph Page, supported the tournament saying that he did not see why Longwood should take a "holier than thou attitude." The Longwood-Miller Classic will take place at Prince Edward County High School and feature four teams: Longwood, Stony Brook (N.Y.), Bowie St. (Md.), and Gallaudet (D.C.). s

Night Comes

~<L NgMA/

Alive With a gas shortage threatening weekend visits home, what does a college student do on a lifeless Saturday Night? The Student Union will continue to bring life into those dull Saturday nights with their "Saturday Night Alive" program. •Saturday Night Alive" began last year and has become extremely popular on campus. The performances take their position between coffeehouses and concerts. Each show features different types of entertainment with musical talents ranging from rock to bluegrass. In the words of Student Union Director, I.B. Dent, "There's something for everyone." For these performances, the Ix>wer Dining Hall turns to a night club atmosphere with candlelite tables provided for the concert goers, and for $1.50, they can enjoy a night of music, laughs and enjoyment. The performances are limited to 400 people because of fire regulations. The first "Saturday Night Alive" will be September 1 at 8:30 p.m. It will feature Jimi Hendrix clone, Randy Hansen's Machine Gun. Hansen, a twenty-four-year-old white guy from Seattle, Washington, impersonates Hendrix right down to the Afro wig and silk scarves. According to Hansen, he started playing Hendrix's guitar licks when he was 13. Since then, he vas been able to capture the energy and passion of Hendrix's wild, improvisational hard-rock. Along with bassist I.arry Epperly and drummer Tim Keliher, Hansen has been able to achieve near perfect sounds of such Hendrix classics as "Foxey lady," "Fire," and "All along the Watchtower."

"If a picture paints a thousand words..." - David Gates

Meet The Longwood Players Longwood's campus contains a group of aspiring and dedicated actors and actresses, technicians, and interested students who form the Longwood Players. One can find the Players encamped in Jarman Auditorium. They are the sponsors, and producers for the four plays presented each school year. The group is open to all interested, regardless of class, major, or amount of talent. A person interested in working with the players must go through an apprecticeship. After working with one play in the department, a student can become an apprentice. This entitles him to attend all meetings, but without voting privileges. After working on a second show, the apprentice becomes a full-pledged Ixmgwood Player. The Players suggest and vote on the plays to be produced. The first effort by the Players will be the revival of last year's production, "Vanities." This play will be performed at the American College Theatre Festival and hopefully make it to the nationwide festival at the John F. Kennedy Center in

Washington, D.C. Gloria Gonzolaz's "A Former Gotham Girl" will be the Player's first official production. Most of the cast for this production have already been chosen since the comedy play will go on stage in September. There are still a few parts needing to be cast. Dr. Douglas Young will be the director for this play. Dr. Patton Lockwood will direct the Player's second production, "The Good Woman of Setznan," a sardonic comedy by Bertolt Brecht. According to Dr. lockwood, the play is a typical Brecht play about three Gods coming down to Earth to find a "good" person. Second semester's plays have not been finalized yet, according to Dr. IiOckwood. The proposed schedule includes the musical, "Carousel" and Agatha Cristi's "Mouse Trap." The drama department will also have one-act plays both semesters to be student directed. Students who have written oneact plays are encouraged to submit them to the department for consideration.

FROM THE EDITOR . . We are a spirited group — that's us — College Students! And as an almost initiated Freshman you have joined us in that group. What will this year bring? This special edition of The Rotunda has introduced you to the musical, artistic, athletic, military and dramatic sides of Longwood. You are provided with many opportunities in these fields as well as others. First on the list should always come academics. They can sometimes fall behind. College work can become extremely hard . . . especially if you fall behind. Those "all-nighters" when term papers are due and you have not started yet can get pretty rough! During your first semester you will learn to allot your time so you can enjoy everything else Longwood has to offer. You have a lot of decisions to make in the next few weeks. After Orientation, Freshmen become a fullfledged part of Longwood. You have class officers to elect and Oktoberfest to start planning for. Oktoberfest is a very important part of Longwood. Everyone becomes involved in someway. It can be in the skits, working on a midway booth, becoming a klown, or many other ways. Oktoberfest brings everyone working together — it brings together friends! That is also a very important part of Longwood — FRIENDS! When you moved in Thursday, you made at least six friends. There was your Head Resident, your Resident Assistant, your student assistant, your colleague, your orientation leader, and let's not leave out your roommate. We once heard Confuscious (or maybe it was some Longwood student trying to be intellectual) say, "Friendship is like a piece of ivy .. . it grows where its planted until it reaches its ultimate height." Longwood provides a place for you as a Freshmen to grow not only through those special friendships you will find here, but through opportunities to better yourself as a person and make yourself something special. Welcome to Longwood! And you're already something Special. . . You're a member of the class of 1983 ... You're a Longwood Freshmen!

First, you decided that you wanted to go to college. Second, you picked your major (even if it is "undecided"). Last, you chose to come to Longwood. We are glad that you did. It is our wish that your first year and every year here will be beneficial and enjoyable.

part of Ixmgwood College and can be an extremely enriching part of your college life. I hope you will participate in and initiate some new ones with your class. The classes graduating in even numbered years are Red and Whites, while those graduating in odd numbered years are Green and Whites. As the Class of 1983. each of you are a Green and White and a member of our color class. Reds and Greens compete in various activities throughout the year, and there is always something for everyone to do. If nothing else, involving yourself in these activities will give you the opportunity to meet many people.

As a fellow student I encourage getting involved in the fun and excitement Ix>ngwood has to offer. I also wish to impress upon you the importance of studying and getting good grades your freshman year. So many upper classmen yearn for those all important grades later—after it is too late. Perfecting your study habits is necessary and it is not stressed often enough. Talk with your professors and ask them for help if it is necessary. They will be glad to give assistance. I look forward to meeting each one of you through Green and White activities. Remember to get involved, study diligently and face the day with a smile! Once again, WEI£OME!! May God bless each one of you always!

Freshmen will soon get a chance to begin an active participation in Longwood life. Much will be covered, concerning this participation, at the first two Freshman class meetings. The first meeting, on August 28, during Orientation, will serve as an informational meeting. Several upperclassmen will present and explain information on various organizational aspects of freshman year. Those interested in running for a class office will be able to pick up a petition, to be turned in at a later date. The second meeting is just as vital and will be held soon, on a date not yet officially designated. At this meeting, candidates are to be presented for the offices of President, Vice-President, Ixmgwood is a place where Secretary, and Treasurer. lasting friendships can be made and talents can shine.

Ten years ago Ixmgwood's power plant converted from coal to oil. Today, Ixmgwood has a 30day reserve coal supply figured into its budget. "Yes, we have considered burning coal as fuel for a long time," said Dr. William H. Peele, vice president of Administration. "The power plant can go either way." Peele went on to say that there is a supply of coal on hand in case something goes wrong with the oil system. The college is looking into the possibility of having a larger supply on hand, depending on the cost at the mine, shipping, and the necessity for the coal. According to Peele, the question is one that if coal is cheaper, should the college use It? Green and White Spirit, Peele also added that the Donna Hughes "state asks us to keep a 30 day Junior Class President coal supply."

The Handbook defines the purpose of CHI as "to promote and maintain a spirit of cooperation among students in every phase of college life." The four columns of the Rotunda on the CHI emblem represent those aspects of student life—spiritual, intellectual, recreational, and social. Each year, the members of CHI strive to strengthen the spirit and tradition that so characterize Ixmgwood College. In past years this has been done through banners, letters, Spirit Walks, commendations and burnings. CHI of 1980 hopes to continue many of these traditions and perhaps start a few new ones.

A skit chairman will work along with their Junior counterparts to produce the Green-n-White Oktoberfest skit, and a booth chairman will oversee production of a creative money-making project in the form of a Midway booth. Chairmen for several other committees will also aid in the Greens' battle for the Oktoberfest cup. Representing your class as an officer, in student government, or for Oktoberfest, is an ideal way to meet new people and grow in a developing and unifying freshman class.
