Kathy Redmon Named Miss Longwood By SHARONJANOVICH "Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to welcome you to the 1980 Miss Longwood Pageant. Your master of ceremonies for this evening is Charlie Mason!" Thus, the pageant began, as in many previous years to determine the next Miss Longwood College! The evening was centered around the theme: "On Broadway." The pageant was initiated with the ten contestants: Karen Parker, Kathy Redmon, Carolyn Scully, Melanie Hudnall, Marjorie LaReau, Linda Hitt, Julie Baca, Jane Bruce, Debra Colbert and Joanne Segraves; performing a dance choreographed by Robin Peterson, to "On Broadway," by the Drifters. This was followed by the reigning Miss Longwood, .lullanna Worsham, taking a final walk down the runway. The audience then saw the ten lovely contestants in their personality competition. Personalities were displayed in various original ways, such as showing a love for sports, music or teaching. Personality competition was followed by Andrea Mott singing, "Bless the Beasts and the Children." The talent competition was one of the most enjoyable segments of the pageant. Karen Parker began this part of the pageant by singing: "You Made Me Love You," from the movie, "Broadway Melody of 1938." Kathy Redmon followed with a drawing-sketching of a horse, while she recited an original poem about horses. Carolyn Scully followed with a selfchoreographed dance to "American in Paris," by George Gershwin. Melanie Hudnall was next with a song which brought

many amused smiles from the title of "Most Talented Nonaudience: "I Got Plenty of Finalist" to Jane Bruce. Second Nuttin"," from Porgy and Bess.

Longwood Gives International

The final moment arrived after Julianna gave a farewell speech and took her final walk. "This was not an easy thing to do," began Julianna, "but I wouldn't give it up for anything in the world." Longwood College was truly lucky to have such an excellent representative. Finally, it came: the judges' decision! The audience waited anxiously, "This year, the winner of the Miss Congeniality award goes to Julie Baca." This was followed by the awarding of the

Longwood College and the Longwood Foundation have announced the founding of a major new literary award, the John Dos Passos Prize. Named in honor of an American writer widely considered one of the most significant literary figures of the twentieth century, the prize — which includes a medal and a substantial cash award — will be international in scope, and will be awarded annually by an independent prize jury. Nominees include John Updike, Norman Mailer, Graham Greene, Derek Walcott, and Harry Crews. The college's Department of English, Philosophy, and Foreign Languages will host a week of readings, receptions, and other events in honor of John Dos Passos, April 7-11. The winner of the prize will be announced at an award banquet on Monday, April 7. The novelist's widow, Mrs. Elisabeth Dos Passos, will be guest of honor. Activities to follow during the week will include a poetry reading by Mark Strand, and a fiction reading by Tim O'Brien, winner of the 1979 National Book Award for Fiction. Longwood professor and novelist William Crawford Woods will also read. The English department will offer a seminar on the fiction of Tim O'Brien. The Department of History and Government will sponsor the Francis Butler

Award Simkins lecture by Virginia Spencer Carr, on the life and work of John Dos Passos. An exhibition of drawings and paintings by Dos Passos will be on display at the Virginia Museum in Richmond from February 26 through April 6. Plans are underway to have some of the novelist's art and other memorabilia on display at Longwood the following week. A prolific writer in many forms and fields and a prominent figure in the Lost Generation of the writers of the 1920' s, John Dos Passos is perhaps best known for his trilogy U.S.A., in which he


developed three experimental techniques for a panoramic exploration of American life in the first third of the twentieth century. It was this work that led the French philosopher JeanPaul Sartre to acclaim him "the greatest of all American novelists." Don Passos was a long-time resident of Virginia, where he died in 1970. The prize jury for 1980 included Mark Strand and Tim O'Brien, and poet Quentin Vest, an associate professor of English at Longwood.

Conference Features 'Highlights' Editor By MELODY CRAWLEY The fourth annual Longwood College Early Childhood Conference held at Wynne Campus School, March 15, featured Dr. Walter Barbe, Editor of Highlights for Children. Dr. Barbe began his talk to the group of approximately 300 elementary teachers and educators by saying, "the best way to teach children is not through their weakness, but through their strength." He emphasized this point by stressing three kinds of learning modalities: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.

The kinesthetic learners are the ones that are known about the least and taken care of the least. He explains the kinesthetic child as one who is more physical, needs more movement, and is outgoing. According to Barbe, they make "a very likeable child — one at a time." He added, "The kinesthetic learner is a child that does well in life if he can make it through school." They make the best doctors, surgeons, and dentists; "they are the physical doers of the world." According to Barbe, they are often termed either slow learners

Senior Spotlight'

Key Is Getting Involved By JODI KERSEY Janie Petty, an economics major from Buchanan, Virginia, is this week's Senior Spotlight. Janie, the former chairman of Student Union, feels that the real key to getting along and enjoying college is to get involved in some way because Longwood offers many diverse activities that includes something for everyone. Janie expressed the idea that she believes the experience gained through the interaction of involvement is just as much a learning experience as studying books. Plus, you will feel better as a person, contributing to the college in your own way. Other activities Janie has been a member of are: Orientation leader, legislative board, Faculty Recognition Committee and the Intercollegiate Council. Janie feels that the economics department has excellent teachers. She was especially impressed with the Economics Seminar Class which helped to give practical experience in economics. She would like to see the department expand and include a greater emphasis on the consumer aspect of economics. Janie stated that everything in society is a result of the economy and students should be taught what to expect when out of college. Janie would like to take more classes after graduation to specialize in economics related to agriculture. Longwood can come closest to the "ideal college," Janie stated, if you try to create the challenges for yourself. She added that I/ongwood has continued to change for the better and that even more rules that were

applicable in the past need to be modified. Only then can the school grow, be able to compete, and to keep its standard of quality. Janie plans to eventually move back to her home town of Buchanan. Her dream is to own a specialty-antique shop. She likes the idea of being her own boss and working with the people she has lived with most of her life.

or hyperactive. He emphasized that putting them on medication was dangerous, because it was "taking away their right to learn." Dr. Barbe also gave examples of all three modalities in children's literature. A kinesthetic writer puts the action first while a visual writer uses description. Another point brought out was that the students learn better when they have the same modality of their teacher. Dr. Barbe closed his lecture by using a quote from Dr. Gardener, "We want everyone well educated. We want both educated plumbers and psychologists, then both our pipes and our theories will hold water." Those attending also had the experience of six different workshop sessions. Dr. Mae Johnson of Virginia State University spoke on "Motivating Reading Through Doll Collections." She showed the teachers how to use various dolls to illustrate children's books. Elizabeth Hunt, Educational Consultant from Marion, N. C, headed a workshop entitled "Introducing Tools to the Very Young Child." In the session, she demonstrated the use of various

hand tools that could be used in the classroom. Linda Farrell of the Prince Edward County Social Services department headed a session, "Child Abuse and Neglect." "Skill Development Through the Use of Puppets" was headed by Patricia Inge of Nottoway School Division. She demonstrated the many different ways of making and using puppets in the classroom. Two Longwood College professors also supervised workshops. Dr. Freda McCombs presented "Motivating Children Through Science."

"Psychomotor Activities for Young Children" was presented by Dr. Eleanor Bobbitt. The conference was offered as a one semester graduate credit to those interested. The College will hold its ninth annual Reading Institute on September 20. Dr. Dorothy Strickland, of Kean College, N. J., will be the keynote speaker on "Reading in the 1980's: Reflection and Renewal." Ms. Eileen Little, Educational Consultant, Coffeyville, Kansas, will be the second keynote speaker. Graduate credit will be offered here, also.

Your Turn Mil Vandalism Dear Student Body, A unique problem has arisen this year as to which CHI banners are for the student body to take and which ones are not. Only "dropped" banners (usually pillow case size), paper posters, CHI Christmas balls, and the Spring Weekend CHI hunt banner are for the general student body to take. (We do request that all paper signs remain until the event we are publicizing has taken place). Large banners (those larger than pillow case size which are normally hung from a building or ceiling) are NOT for students to take. A lot of hard work goes into making and hanging these banners. They are to note a specific campus event and are the exclusive property of CHI. We would like to use them year after year. Also banners given to a specific group or individuals are the property of those to whom they are given. Anyone taking these banners without permission of the owner may be punished for stealing. (An example would be whoever stole the Dance Marathon banner). Another type of CHI emblem which is NOT to be taken is our new CHI flag which will fly from the flag pole. This, too, is to commend certain activities and is CHI's property. CHI DOES NOT APPROVE OF VANDALISM, DESTRUCTION OF COLLEGE PROPERTY OR EXTREME AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR TO GET POSSESSION OF A CHI EMBI£M. We are sorry for any misconceptions some of the student body may have had. We assumed too much in that the student body would automatically realize the above stated rules. We remind students that we will not "ransome" our property back, but will ask the college administration to act on our report of theft. When in doubt. DON'T take a banner. We try to provide some

banners each year for the students and we appreciate your support and enthusiasm for this tradition. Please be patient. Remember, the banners would not mean as much if there were an abundance of them. CHI is an organization which represents the spirit of the entire student body, therefore we would like to have banners for the college as a whole to enjoy. With Blue and White Spirit, CHI 1980 Letter To



Dear Jean d' Arc, In response to this week's letter and to the minority of Blue-nWhite, Green-n-White, Paint Battle, Christmas Elves, Songfest, Gang Green, Sally Redn-White, SISTERHOOD and the so called "Long Longwood Traditions" that were once a part (not vital) of the college, I must say, I am concerned about your spirit being "shook." I hope your friends will read to you this week's Rotunda, especially the heading "Victorious Again." You missed the new show of spirit by not being at Hampden-Sydney the night of March 7, 1980. Jean, the new spirit is LANCERS! We must like all old people, soldiers, teachers, professors, politicians, etc., "never die, just fade away" and expect someday for the future Longwood students to ask in wonderment, "Jean d' Arc, who was SHE?" George P. Elliott Alumni Class of'56 P.S. Maybe you can get a room at the Alumni House.

I se Of Gym • Dear Editor, I, as the vice-president of the Intramural Activities Association, feel it my duty to make you, as a student, aware of the possible future uses of the gymnasium facility. Between the months of October and March, the new gym could possibly be

reserved for use by the intercollegiate athletic teams between the hours of 4-10. This would leave the sole hour of 10-11 for you, as a student to use the gym for intramurals or just recreational purposes. Even though the IAA will still have access to Her gym for their programs, we feel that the students, as well as the athletes are entitled to use this new facility. The hour of 10-11 is entirely too late to ask students to use the gym for whatever purposes they may choose. I feol that this time period can be mutually shared between the intercollegiate athletic program and the intramurals. There are approximately 60 athletes involved in sports between October and March, as opposed to approximately 400 students who are involved in intramurals during these months. If the scheduling of the intercollegiate program cannot be flexible with us, we cannot stand by and agree to use the sole hour of 10-11 for our purposes. This new facility is a Health, Physical Education and Recreation building and not exclusively an athletic complex. Anyone interested in openly discussing this matter is invited to attend the IAA meeting to be held on Thursday, April at 6:30 p.m. in the IAA room of Lankford building. Your support would be highly appreciated. Afterall, the IAA is here for you, the student. Thank you. Sincerely, Susan Towler

Thank* To the College Commurity, Through my experience with The Rotunda and college affairs, I have come to appreciate and respect the work and help of three important ladies. The work they do is vital to the college, yet they receive only a rare tid bit of recognition for their efforts. Mrs. Barbara Stonikinis, Mrs. Betty Bryant, and Mrs. Pat Motley together, yet individually, make up the essential working core of our Public Affairs Office.

Their employers are the members of the college community, and their audience is the public. These ladies, and some assistants, devote their time and efforts to acknowledging, and compiling information on, all activities of that college community. All events, major and minor, throughout the twelve-month year, come in contact with the PAO; whether the need be for the organizational and photographic skills of Mrs. Stonikinis, the typesetting and lay-out skills of Mrs. Motley, or the writing ability, promo or coverage (usually both), of Mrs. Bryant. These people earn their living by giving acknowledgement, recognition, and support to us, the college. They deserve and need the same from us. The Rotunda editorial staff is grateful for the availability of help and material from the PAO in our times of need, even though in some times of chaos due credit is not found. Speaking of chaos, I cannot neglect our appreciation for the extra aid we receive from Mr. Hoke Currie, Sports Information Director. The availability of his assistance is found in incredible abundance. I can only say "Thank you" for what they all give to the college and the interested public. Dave Gates C.anipiis Police Service Dear Editor, On Sunday, March 2, I had an out-of-town guest visiting me. Because of the freezing weather conditions, we discovered that his car needed a jump start. I called the campus police office twice, receiving no answer either time. Then I called the inf irmary to see if they could tell me the whereabouts of the campus police. The nurse informed me that the campus police were VERY busy taking people to the hospital, and probably would not be able to help. Ironically, I had (Continued on Page 4)

Child Abuse A Big Problem By DEBBIE NORTHERN Two speakers from local state agencies came to campus March 11 to talk on the prevalent social problem of child abuse. A sharp rise in reported cases of child abuse has been recorded over the years. Linda Farrell of the Prince Edward County Social Services Department spoke on "How to Recognize an Abused Child." She explained that a state law requires that professionals such as doctors, teachers, and social workers to report suspected child abuse cases. An abused child will normally either be extremely withdrawn or extremely hyperactive, according

to Ms. Farrell. Abused children may also have bruises on the fleshy part of his body, or bear marks from such objects as belt buckles, or round cigarette burns. Physically neglected children steal or beg food or come to school with improper attire or are ungroomed. The Social Services Department case workers are required to investigate any complaints of child abuse, said Farrell. If there is sufficient evidence of abusive actions toward the child by the child's guardian, court action may be taken. Ms. Farrell says that only in cases of extreme danger will

March Is Social Work Month By BRENDA BONNCELLI With the entrance of March, snowy and wet, comes the entrance of Social Work month — no comparison really! Social Work month brings with it many interesting and exciting events. Because of the snow and busy schedules of a lot of social workers themselves, some of these planned activities may not occur until April. Never the less, they will still be interesting and enjoyable.

Are you interested in wearing a button or a new T-shirt? Well, look no further. The social work profession has solved your basic desire! Social work buttons are going (quickly, I might add) for 25 cents each, a cheap price for such artistic endeavors. Interested in a T-shirt to put that new shiny button on? Well Pairet's has all colors and sizes with two social work designs to choose from. This Thursday, March 20, will be the annual Spring Cabin Retreat. Hopefully it would not have to be postponed again due to rain (or Snow!) Sign up and pay your one dollar in Grace's office soon, because it can only hold 50 people! Hamburgers, hot dogs, beans, cold drinks, beer (naturally) and a terrific time (naturally) are all being offered. Other events in the making are speakers, a career forum, a banquet and lots more. Watch for a meeting soon and if you want to help or have any ideas, be sure to come. Enjoy the month; say "Hi!" to a social worker. Remember, this is their time!!!

the child be removed from the home. The emphasis is to rehabilitate the abuser and keep the family together. Mr. Gordon Ragland, a Welfare Services Specialist from the Lynchburg Regional Office of Social Services, spoke on "The Causes and Effects of Child Abuse." He opened his talk with a film which related how an abusive parent learned to deal with her problem through a group encounter session. There are several reasons why parents might abuse their children. Parents who were abused as children will probably abuse their offspring. Mentally and physically handicapped children, who do not meet parental expectations, often are abused. Parents who are isolated from society or have no strong support systems are usually abusive. A supportive mate or friend can normally stem abusive actions. There are several types of abuse: physical, emotional and neglect. Anyone suspecting a case of child abuse should contact their local Social Service office or dial the Virginia Toll Free Hotline number 1-800-552-7096. All reports are confidential.

Talented Blend By REBECCA MILLER The Rob Crosby Band played to a small but enthusiastic crowd at Saturday Night Alive. The Band, originally from Columbia, South Carolina, is made up of seven members. Rob Crosby, lead vocals and guitar; Margie McCrory, vocals; Steve White on piano; Carey Taylor, bass; Tommy Taglio, drums; Bobby Fowler, saxophone and flute; and Tim McKeever on percussion. Individually, each are very talented — together they blend beautifully. Overall their sound was mellow, though they did songs ranging from rock to country, and blues to jazz. Many of their songs were written by Rob Crosby, or other members of the band, but in addition they sang songs by such artists as The Beatles, Toni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, and Billie Holliday. The audience seemed to like the country rock numbers best, and they were accompanied by much hand-clapping and fingersnapping. By far, however, the most enjoyable facet of the concert was watching them together on stage. They obviously were enjoying themselves as much as the audience was enjoying listening to their music.

Musicale Planned By TOM SULLIVAN Phi Mu Alpha (the professional men's fraternity) and Sigma Alpha Iota (the honorary women's fraternity) are combining their efforts and talents to present a musicale for the enjoyment of the general public. Among the performances listed will be group singing by each fraternity, performances by individual soloists and appearances by the Jazz Ensemble and the Brass Choir (a new instrumental group). The Musicale will be held at the Wygal Music Building on March 20, 2980, at 8 p.m. The general public is invited and admission is free! All are encouraged to attend this well planned event.

'An Amazing Display Of Creativity' From PUBLIC AFFAIRS The annual exhibition of work by students at J. P. Wynne Campus School, currently on display in the Lancaster Library Gallery at the college, is an eminently fitting celebration of Youth Art Month. The exhibit includes works by some 120 of the Campus School students, kindergarten through seventh grade. They demonstrate a startling depth of thought and an amazing display of creativity. The gallery is filled with exuberant color and a great variety of textures, shapes, and designs. The most thought-provoking part of the exhibit is the "social comment" works by sixth and seventh graders, displayed in the hallway outside the gallery. Social comment is defined as "a type of art not intended to be pretty but which carries a message that will startle, even shock." The works are "combines," and include the use of photo transfer in the manner of the noted contemporary artist Robert Rauschenberg. The students who created these works were participants in an art and advanced elective program at the Campus School They held a panel discussion with community leaders concerning problems in this area. Each student studied a particular artist whose work involves social comment, such as Ben Shahn, Picasso, and Goya. They read newspapers and other materials and visited the Virginia Museum to see Robert Rauschenberg's exhibit. The students then created their own social comment works, focusing on problems and conditions of modern life they see as important. The subjects they chose include prejudice, nuclear power, abortion, drugs and alcohol, inflation, violence and brutality, and cruelty to animals. Other works in the exhibit

include: nature dolls, created from materials gathered in the woods and scraps of fabric, string, and leather; wire sculptures showing motion; clay masks, pots, animals, and people; op art designs; junk sculpture; wooden toys, some with moveable parts; glue prints and foil embossings; weavings; scrap wood sculptures; linoleum block prints; crayon engravings; wood slab masks painted with natural clays; and stuffed paper pillows by which first graders learned about designing for a round shape. Visitors to the gallery can see the results of what Mrs. Jackie Wall, art director at the Campus School, calls "a sequential art program," with each grade level building on concepts and techniques learned in previous grades. Many of the art projects were correlated with studies in other areas, such as science and social studies.

Through Hardfought Battles Lancers Return No. 4 By TOM HAUDRICOURT Tlmes-Dlspatch Sports Writer I-ongwood College, a team many said did not belong in the NCAA Division III final four, proved that it did last night. But after a wild finish, the Lancers were left with only that satisfaction and not a victory. North Park, the twotime defending champion and No. 1 team in the country, needed a blocked shot by Viking reserve Keith French on the buzzer to hold off the upstart Lancers 57-65 in a semifinal contest at Augustana College. The win boosted the Vikings into the Championship game against Upsala, which toppled Wittenburg 67-63 in the first semifinal. The Lancers were left with the consolation game, and the knowledge that they had North Park for the taking and let it slip away. Longwood, rated No. 12 in the last Division III poll, had two controversial walking calls in the last 39 seconds take away its changes for an upset victory. And North Park still needed that final block to win. Longwood (28-2) was ahead 5352 when Larry Meyer stole a rebound away from North Park's Jim Clausen with :49 left. The lancers called timeout and went to a four-corners spread, only to have guard Shack Leonard whistled for a walking violation in the lane at :39. French then hit an eight-footer at: 27 to put the Vikings (27-3) up at 54-53. On the ensuing inbounds pass, Leonard was called for traveling again and North Park, playing before a highly partisan crowd of 2,400, got the ball back. Michael Thomas, who led the Chicago team with 20 points, hit two free throws at 13 to make it 56-53, but Longwood's Joe Remar cut it to 56-55 with a drive at :06. The lancers called timeout with five seconds remaining, and Leonard was whistled for holding Thomas before the ball was put in play. Thomas hit the first foul shot, but the second one rebounded long and Meyer swatted it out to

Remar at midcourt. Remar raced in for what looked like the tying layup, but French sailed over and rejected it Just as the buzzer sounded. "The two walks were extremely questionable," said Longwood coach Ron Bash. "The block at the end was good, but the two walks were highly questionable. I think the entire crowd saw that. There were so many obvious calls to make." The North Park fans poured on the court after the game and mobbed the Vikings as if they had just won the championship. And coach Dan McCarrell was more than a little bit relieved. "I feel very happy and a little lucky," he said. "We expected it to be a tough game and it came down to a block at the buzzer." The Vikings did not appear in need of final heroics while taking an early 42-36 lead in the second half. But the Lancers, ignoring the screaming crowd and a huge height disadvantage, did not fold up. Longwood came back to the game at 45-45 and fouled out North Park's 6-10 All-America center Michael Harper with 6:56 left. Harper, averaging 21.7 points a game, scored only five and was never a factor in the game. The Lancers hung close and ran several minutes off the clock with a delay offense. A flurry of turnovers stopped either team from pulling away, but Thomas Alston's two foul shots put the Lancers up 53-52 with 1:47 left and set up the final, frantic seconds. "People know who Longwood is now," said Bash. "Playing a dynasty in a hostile environment, I thought the kids stood up well." The Lancers also refused to fold in the first half after falling behind 8-2 and 10-6. Longwood made the Vikings play at their pace — which was considerably slower than North Park preferred. Ron Orr's three-point play with 11:17 left gave the Lancers their first tie since 2-2 at 14:14. From that point, the Vikings were unable to shake free despite getting several shots at the basket on many occasions.

seen a campus police officer less than an hour earlier at McDonald's on the important mission of returning a flag. When did McDonald's turn into an emergency room? Couldn't the flag have been returned another day when weather conditions were improved? After much frantic searching, I finally found someone with jumper cables. While walking to get the cables, I noticed a campus police car (the only one in use that day) parked at I-ankford I suppose he was on an emergency call, since they were so busy transporting people to the hospital. I pleasantly asked him if he could help jump start a car. He asked whether the car had a Longwood College Parking sticker on it. It did not, since my friend does not go to LC. The

campus police then said that he was sorry, but he could not help unless the car had a sticker. If the car had a sticker, he assured us he would help. Now, given a similar situation in any town, how many policemen would ask a person who needed help whether or not that person was a resident of that particular community? If a student were lying hurt somewhere would campus police refuse to take them to the hospital unless a Longwood ID was shown? After two unsuccessful attempts to start the car, (this was over an hour later) who should come to the rescue? No, not our campus police, but some parents of Longwood students. I wonder how those parents felt when they discovered they were assisting students who HAD

Remar's free throws with 4:27 showing gave Longwood its first lead at 24-23 and the Lancers led for the last time in the half at 2625. The Vikings, with French hitting a three-point play, then reeled off the next five points to go up 30-26. Longwood decided to hold the ball with a little over a minute left before intermission. Leonard then drove the lane and was fouled just before the buzzer. He hit both free throws and the Lancers retreated to the locker room very much in the game, trailing 30-28. Saturday night's consolation match up with Wittenberg of Springfield, Ohio, brought another disappointing yet hardfought loss for the Lancers. The Lancers led 30-24 at halftime but fell into trouble in the second half. With 37 seconds left in the game Tee Alston tied it up with the score of 45-45." Wittenberg hit a layup with nine seconds left, only causing Joe Remar to score on a 20-footer with one second left to force the overtime. The final score was 48-47.

Base ball Season I'nderivav:

Week's Record 3-3 An ambitious 43-game schedule, *hich includes eight contests with Division I foes, presents a tremendous challenge for Longwood's young baseball team as the season got underway last week. In Monday's action, the Lancers dropped two games to Richmond 104, 15-0. However, Tuesday, they made a comeback beating rival Hampden-Sydney College, 11-5. In the H-SC game, Barry Gordon hit two home runs and had five RBI's. The Lancers' top pitcher David Mitchell pitched nine innings with seven hits.

Gymnists Place Second At Regionals By LISA SPENCER Longwood gymnasts traveled to Radford University this weekend seeded first for the Regional Championships. Unfortunately, William and Mary proved superior again — as they had in the earlier State Championships. Longwood did finish second in the team standings with 126.85 points. William and Mary had 129.3, and Radford was third with 121.65. Sharon Pillow and Kathy Idelson came through for Longwood again. Sharon won the all-around competition with an excellent score of 33.4. She also took first place in vaulting (8.96) and second place on the balance beam (8.4). Kathy was fourth in all-around with a very close score of 32.65. Her score of 8.05 was good enough to earn her second

place on bars. She also had third on beam, and fifth on the floor. Margie Fanton was the only other Longwood gymnast to place; she had a sixth in vaulting (8:05). As far as national competition goes, William and Mary will advance there because they won at Regionals. But there are five open berths in the country for the teams with the best seasonal averages. Coach Budd does not know if the team will get the bid, but there is a good possibility. Also, there is a certain number of all-arounds picked to compete at Nationals. According to Coach Budd, Sharon definitely will go, and Kathy has a good chance. Nationals will be held March 2829 at Centenary College in Louisiana.

Mitchell, having just recovered from a shoulder separation, suffered several weeks ago, was the winning pitcher. Wednesday the Lancers won in a home game with Washington and Lee University, 10-3. Richard Vault was the winning pitcher in this game. Doug Toombs and Price Beville both had three hits. In final action last week, the Lancers lost to King College, Saturday, 9-8 and came back to beat them 6-3. Doug Toombs had five hits in this game including a home run and two doubles. Barry Gordon drove in five runs. Richard Vault was the winning pitcher, staying in the whole game with a six-hitter. He now has a 2-0 record. Lancer coach Buddy Bolding, who guided Longwood to a 16-12 mark last season in his first year at the helm, approaches the upcoming campaign with guarded optimism. ' 'We've got a solid team with an infield and bench which are much stronger than last season," said Bolding. "This year, however, is a big step for us in terms of the schedule. "I guess most people would call me an optimist," he continued, "but I feel we have the potential to win 20 or maybe 25 games. Considering how strong the opposition will be, we would be doing well to win that many games." This week's action includes today at St. Paul's, and Thursday at home against N. C. Methodist.
