Seniors Start Year With Capping And Convocation Ceremonies ByMIKEO'HARE Two age-old traditions were carried on by the class of 1980: Senior Capping, held on September 4 at 7 p.m. and Convocation, which took place on September 6 at 1 p.m. in Jarman Auditorium. Senior Capping, one of Ungwood's oldest traditions, is "more symbolic than functional," according to Libby Bowman, Senior Class President. Faculty advisor for the Class of 1980, Dr. Billy S. Batts, was not present because of illness — but those present were treated to a serious discourse by Ixmgwood's president, Dr. Henry I. Willett, Jr. Dr. Willett spoke of the great nations that had collapsed from "internal softness" and urged the audience to "look before you leap." Dr. Willett took the opportunity to blast those suffering from ' post-Watergate syndrome;" i.e., the tendency to condemn before all facts are in. "All of us . . should give people the benefit of the doubt," he urged. He partially blamed the media for the current attitude and said that

he felt they should "temper their opinions." After the speech, seniors were capped by their "little brothers and sisters" — underclassmen chosen by each senior. The caps' tassels were designed individually by the little brothers and sisters. A sophomoresponsored reception followed in the Gold Room. Convocation, held Thursday, is recognized at Ixwigwood College as the official opening of the academic year. It precedes Senior Capping, which is the seniors' official recognition. Convocation opened with a procession of the faculty and seniors, who were all attired in their academic regalia. The Reverend John Thompson, pastor of the Farmville Presbyterian Church, delivered the Invocation. Afterwards, Dean Carolyn Wells recognized the "Longwood Scholars" who were present. There were four sets of scholars - for 1976-77: Sherill Jean Harrison and Karen Nanette Shelton; for 1977-78: Cynthia Gay Poore; for 1978-79: Marv Beth

Johnson and Sharon Paige Wooten; and for 1979-80: Melinda Carol Allman, Charna Elaine Moore, Carol Ann Parrish, Patricia Ann Pascale, Donald Nelson Roland, Jr., and Susan Alane Watford. Miss Bowman then introduced the guest speaker, Dr. John D. Wilson, a professor at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Va. Dr. Wilson's speech lived up to Dean Wells' dictate that it be "stimulating, dynamic, and penetrating." Among the topics covered were contemporary music, Longwood's "remarkable catalog," and Dr. Wilson's family! However, he did advise the senior to "choose what means Libby Bowman introduce Dr. John D. Wilson at Convocation cermost to you" rather than pursue emonies. Photo by David G»tti strictly material values. After Benediction by the Reverend John Thompson, the Class of 1980 and the faculty then concluded the ceremony by marching out to accompaniment of Dietrich Buxtehude's "Toccata in F Major." Miss Bowman revealed that these pageants are "meaningful" Dean Heintz stated, to most seniors.

Spirited Seniors Tapped By Geist By JLDI STANLEY "To recognize and to serve"— this is the purpose of Geist, "a local honorary leadership society whose members strive to serve the student body as they strive to meet their own ideals," said Mrs. Nancy Shelton as she and Miss Terri Swann spoke at the Geist Recognition Assembly. Mrs. Shelton and Miss Swann related

to the audience the origin and meaning of Geist. Until 1966, Alpha Kappa Gamma was the honorary organization on Longwood's campus. Its main activity was a circus week end which included a circus, skits by the classes, a parade, and a midway. In 1966, AKG became Geist, a German word which means "spirit,

This warmth and sincerity is what makes us proud to be students at l.ongwood. It distresses us to hear about the injustices that are occurring against freshmen and upperclassmen alike. This year,

especially this semester, looks like it will be a trying and difficult one for all. Upperclassmen, although you may be in an unpleasant rooming condition, put out an effort to be understanding toward the freshmen. Of us all, they have had it the hardest with last minute registration, tripled rooming situations, and various college life adjustments. Hopefully, each one of you will do all you can to make their college life better. We must congratulate you freshmen for the courage you have shown in all the situations you have faced since arriving at I/)ngwood. We challenge you to overcome these difficulties. We appreciate all efforts by the upperclassmen in guiding the freshmen through the year. Try to remember that you too were once in their position. I jet's all strive to exhibit the warmth and closeness that has been traditional at I/mgwood!

Commentary By MARK M. SLOAN We've all had our little run-ins with the new computer scheduling system this semester, and I suppose that my tale is not unique. Much confusion has resulted from the machine's errors: schedules weren't appointed, and appointments weren't scheduled; males were given rooms in female dorms (to the delight of some and the chagrin of many), and classes were designated as meeting in the strangest places (Curry's

basement, for instance and Room 37 of the Physical Plant. Mysterious errors such as these caused me to take my print-out in hand and proceed to the Lower Dining Hall, where the same computer which had fouled up my schedule would supposedly reschedule it in its proper order. I entered the Ixwer Dining Hall anticipating a futuristic, efficiently streamlined system, with a machine right out of Star Trek: blinking lights, strange sounds, and so forth. What I encountered, however, was one

To many these past few days this saying has been a reality in more ways than one. But, as in all things, there are both good and bad points to the new computer registration system. For one thing, Freshmen registered in mass on one day whereas in the past, there have been summer academic advising sessions. Of the 800 schedules, only 715 were processed which created a loss of 84 schedules. The fault, according to Jerry Hill, Director of Computer Services, was a typographical error which caused an overprint. Put simply, a group of schedules were skipped over when the individual doing the job misread a number. Secondly, the computer's collection table (counter) was set for 6,000. The approximate total of add-drops was 8,000. The computer was reset again for 10,000 to accommodate for the overflow. Another problem involving the add-drop system developed when a student would add a class, then drop the same class, and then add the very same course again (same course and section number). This caused the enrollment figurements to error. When asked if he thought Longwood was becoming a computerized college, Hill stated "No more so than all other colleges and no more so than society in general. . .Everything has a number." It was pointed out that there was probably more human contact during this registration than before, whereby the student was forced to talk to his or her advisor. There was it seems, a chance to deal one-on-one with other inuividuals; students had a chance to meet the staff. Because of the use of the computer, there is no need to increase personnel. There is the need to use automation to allow a college to continue at its proper level. Without it, a college would seriously change or, quite possibly, no longer continue to exist. The move to computerization represents change and change represents new traditions, new life styles, a loss of individualism. The question still remains — are we being reduced to a number, causing us to lose our idenity with the human race, as a separate being, as a student? None of us wants to be a number. It is a question that has to be solved by each of us — individually. PE J

bespectacled young man, sitting in front of a TV set and working an electric typewriter. This, I was told, was The Computer. I gave this fellow my poor, mixed-up schedule, and was informed that it would be no problem to repair. But when he entered my student number into the machine, the TV set went dark. From somewhere came the smell of smouldering wires, as the man began to press buttons seemingly at random. The screen lit up again, to show a re-run of an old Green Acres episode. The fellow grew angry, and struck the top of the machine. This time, it beeped a bit like R2-D2, and a wisp of smoke drifted out. Now there was no picture, but I could at least hear 1,-ed Zepplin over its speaker. The man cursed, and struck the machine a final blow, causing it to groan and go dark. "Oh no!" cried the fellow, "I've killed it!" As I exited the room he was in the process of giving the machine CPR. I now had to take my schedule over to the main computer office, where the lady in charge entered my course-change forms into her version of The Computer. This one came to life instantly, and for a moment I anticipated an easy time of it. As a series of words and numbers flowed across the screen, she began to read out loud: "...and our contact in Angola was eliminated last night...must pay off that Cuban colonel, but we need to launder some more cash...Oh, dear," she said, "we must have gotten our lines crossed with the CIA's computer at Langley. That happens so often." She pressed a series of buttons, the screen flickered and beeped, and I saw my very own number on the screen. The speaker was playing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, but at least the schedule was mine. I eventually got the problems worked out, and my new schedule seems to be going all right now. But I'm still a bit leery of my Astronomy class, which the computer has listed as meeting in the playground behind the Home Ec building...

Neo-Realist Display Featured In Lancaster By BARBARA BAKER A selection of silkscreen prints and lithographs by contemporary Neo-Realistic artists will be on display in I.ancaster Library Gallery through October 3. The exhibition, sponsored by the Department of Art and the Virginia Museum, includes eight silkscreens by Richard Estes, called "Urban landscapes" and 12 lithographs called "Radical Realism" or "Photo Realism" by various other talented artists. The Neo-Realist artists usually work from photographs, television, and films in order to view the subject with "cool" emotional distance and photographic objectivity. The subjects of the works are frequently views of street scenes, store-fronts, subways, cars and hamburger stands. This method of working from photographs not only acts as a "buffer" to the artist's emotional response to a scene, but it reveals every minute detail

of a scene captured in one instant of time. So give your eyes a delightful break from studying while at the library and view these fascinating artworks. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Also in the Art Department, you can see an example of what enormous talent Longwood claims, by stopping by the Showcase Gallery in the Reading

Rooms of I.ankford to view and admire the artworks of senior art major, Betsy Connelh. The exhibition includes paintings in oil and acrylic, drawings in pencil, ink, conte, and pastels, linoleum and wood cuts, sine, aluminum and plexiglass etchings, a lithograph, photo etching, and wood carving. Miss Connelly's work will be on display through September 14 and is open to the public.

Soccer '79:


A Building Foundation By CHUCK COLE The Ixmgwood College Soccer team springs into action this week by hosting three Intra-state rivals. These three games initiate what first-year coach Rich Posipanko hopes to be a successful year. Namely, a .500 season. Posipanko hopes to blend the talents of his recruits with the returning I.ancer hooters to bring an exciting brand of soccer action to the I/>ngwood campus. Coach Rich Posipanko comes to lx)ngwood after spending three seasons as an assistant coach at Trenton State. Working under the pressure of a very short recruiting year, he was able to bring several key players to supplement his squad. His talented recruits include Gustavo and Mario I-eal of Rockville, Md. The I/eal brothers have had some international experience and may provide the spark the I.ancir hooters need in their quest for a successful season. Joe Parker and Mike McGeehan, both Philadelphiaarea recruits, are also expected to play a big part of the lancers' season. Posipanko views Parker


as a scoring threat, which will be a valuable asset to a young I-ancer squad The captain of this year's team is senior returning forward, Dave Yerkes. He will combine with junior returnee Jerry (iilleland and Parker on the forward line to provide the scoring punch for the I-ancers. Midfield for the I-ancers will showcase sophomore returnee Ken Gebbie, junior college transfer Paul Robertson, and Freshmen recruits Mario 1-eal and Mike McGeehan. This talented group is expected to serve double-duty, helping to provide the scoring punch while beefing-up the lancer defense. SOCCER DATt

Selected By KATHY CHASE Eleven anxious horsewomen gathered Monday, September 3, in the Bristow Parking l>ot to go out to the Whitlock Stables for the 1979-80 Riding team try-outs. Six ol the eleven were freshmen, four were sophomores, and one was a junior. Returning from last year were Kath\ Redmon, Katrhy Chase. Robyn Walker, and Janet Young. New team members are Shannon Chambers. Krika Cnstea. Mary Ball, I-aura Fields, and Karla Weber Coach Mary Whitlock said she was greatly impressed by the number of people who signed up to try out." Coach Whitlock also stated that "the enthusiasm seems to be up" and she is really looking forward to a successful season. The team is anticipating a busy year with five of the eight intercollegiate shows in the fall. The Riding team would like to thank all students and faculty who supported the team last year and hopes to have their continued support.


^ .

The key to success will be their ability to control the ball and keep the pressure on the opposition's defense. Defensively, the lancers will rely on the services of sophomore returnees Brian Cochran and Mike Kerrigan, and first-year player Mario Leal. Coach Posipanko is counting on a strong defense to strengthen the one questionable position in the lancer lineup. Posipanko is still searching for a goaltender. Several players are expected to see action in the lancer goal as the coach looks for the ability and consistency which will serve the lancers well during the season. The Longwood Soccer program has a great future under the leadership of Coach Posipanko. This year's squad lacks depth in some key areas, but the team has the potential for a very strong year. With a full recruiting year following the season, the lancers should be even stronger next year. This year will be a learning and growing year for the coach and his team, but it looks like Longwood has fashioned the foundation for a strong Soccer program at Ixmgwood. Longwood kicked off its season September 10, with a home match against Averett College under the lights on Her Field. This was the first night outdoor athletic event in the history of the school.

Enthusiasm Marks Rugby Style By FRANK CREASY The Ixmgwood Rugby Club opens its season on September 23 at Lynchburg College and Coach Stuart Tennant is optimistic about the prospects of the 1979 lancer team. With 15 returning players and just as many new members, the ruggers promise to provide the fans with an exciting season. The lancers schedule should prove to be interesting. Besides Lynchburg, matches with Mary Washington, Washington and Lee, and the University of Richmond (which will be played Oktoberfest week end) have already been scheduled. Of course, the contest of the year will be against archrival Hampden-Sydney, whom the lancers tied last spring in an exciting match. Besides these games, Ixmgwood will also play in the Ed Ix?e Cup for the state title. Being a new team, however, Ixmgwood

will compete in the B division of that tournament. Rugby is unique in several ways. First, because of the fast paced, aggressive style of play, which also includes precision teamwork as an integral component of the attack. Second, the traditional keg party after every match. But more importantly, the NCAA does not sanction Rugby as an intercollegiate sport. Thus, the players compete independently of the school's athletic program as a club. This, however, does not hinder the spirit of sportsmanship, cnaractenstic of rugby. Said Tennant, "There is none of the elitism found in most major college sports." Tennant also stated that the only requirements to play are desire and enthusiasm. He hopes that Ixmgwood fans will inherit some of that enthusiasm and cheer the Lancer ruggers on to victory in 1979.

Spikers Predict Strong Season By DEBBIE NORTHERN Confidence and team work are the watch words for the 1979 spikers. Coach Carolyn Calloway is predicting the Lancers volleyball team to be number one in Division III. In fact, she feels they should not lose to any of the 12 Division III schools they play. Coach Calloway says this year's team members are highly skilled and are working well together. "Volleyball is a real team sport—if the players don't get along it is hard to put it together," she said. For the first time, the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) is offering three divisions for women's sports, as the NCAA does. The major difference is that each women's sport is able to decide their own division, while all men's sports at a college must be in a single division. Since the volleyball team offers no scholarship aid, the team is classed in Division III.

A team entering the flag football, volleyball, basketball or softball can earn points according to the following system, first place — five points, second place — four points, third place — three points. All teams receive one point for participation. In addition, any member of a team who plays in an individual sport can give points to the team of which they are a member. The winning teams will have their names engraved on a large trophy for permanent display. The dorm, sorority, or fraternity which wins the championship for three years will get a trophy to keep. The checkout system this year is open more hours than last year. Any Ixmgwood student who presents an ID card can check out equipment during these hours: Monday - 3:30-4:30; 6-8 p.m.; Tuesday-3:30-4:30 and 68 p.m.; Wednesday - 3:30-5 p.m.; Thursday — 3:45-5:15 and 6-8 p.m.; Friday - 2:30-4 p.m.; and Saturday - 2-3:30.

I>ancers finished their season with a 4-11-2 record. The JV team had a 3-4-1 record. The team expects much better results this year starting with their first game on September 18 when they will host Lynchburg College. The game will be played at 3 p.m. on Barlow Field. September 21 is the opening date for the Ixmgwood College Invitational Field Hockey Tournament. The lancers will be hosting four teams from major universities. During Fall Break a team will tour Ohio playing several nationally ranked teams. Dr. Harris feels that Ixmgwood can offer competition to the larger schools. Her philosophy is that you do not have to have a large school to have a good team. The I,ady lancers are looking forward to a highly successful season.

Volleyball Team Roster


Three starters were lost from last year's 16-8 team which captured fourth place in the state small college division. Four other varsity players were also lost from the roster. Returning standouts include hitter Meg Cook, described by Coach Calloway as an "all around leader"; Robyn Hungate, a second year player who will be a strong point on the front line; and Cindy "CT" Thomas, who will take over the vacancy left byAll Tournament setter Linda Eagle, after hitting the previous year. Adding to the team will be transfer student Frannie Osmer, with two years college experience. Two freshmen with great potential joined the lineup; Madeline Moose, standing 5 feet 11 inches will add height to the squad, and Elaine Oley will bring her experience. During their busy season the team will meet one Division I team (UVA) and five Division II schools.

New Coach, High Goals By SHERRY CARMONY This year's field hockey squad, under the direction of Dr. Bette L. Harris, consists of 30 girls. As of right now, there is no division between varsity and junior varsity but Dr. Harris said that the selection should be made by the end of the week. Among the players returning to the lancers are six seniors, four juniors, and eight sophomores. Twelve team members are freshmen. Approximately seven of the girls are scholarship players. Seventeen team members got early help with their game by attending the Mt. Pocono Hockey Conference Camp in Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania. Players who did not go to camp had early practices under the direction of Dr. Carolyn Hodges. In a rebuilding year, the 1978

Lady Golfers Drive For Championship Ixmgwood's women golf coach Barbara Smith is eagerly awaiting the beginning of her season. Coach Smith, golf coach at Ixmgwood for the past 10 years, has carved out a reputation that ranks her tops in her profession in the state of Virginia, lancer teams have garnered 118 wins against just 31 losses while capturing five state crowns under Coach Smith's tutelage. Her talented golfers, who have their sights set on a berth in the AIAW championships next summer, open play Friday (September 14), hosting six teams in the two-day Ixmgwood Invitational Tournament. With all six of last year's top golfers returning and the addition of three highly touted freshmen, Coach Smith may have one of her finest teams in the upcoming fall and spring seasons. "Our main goal is to qualify for the AIAW championships in June at Tucson, Arizona,'' said the coach. "We haven't made it in the past, but this year I think our chances are excellent." The I^ady Lancers had a string of two straight VAIAW state championships snapped last fall when they came in second behind Madison. Smith's crew will be out to regain the state crown in October. One big reason for Smith's optimism is the return of top golfer Kay Smith iCovington). Smith, a junior, had a stroke average of 80.9 last fall and was runner-up in the championship flight of the VAIAW State Open. "Kay is probably hitting the ball longer than she ever has," observed Coach Smith. "She is also more consistent around the greens now. I feel she should reach her potential this year. She narrowly missed qualifying for the nationals last spring." Other returning veterans include: senior Becky Webb (Galax) last year's runner-up in first flight at the State Open, sophomore Beth Waddell i Winston-Salem, NC) who earned an 84.5 stroke average in the fall of 78, junior Debra Hood (South Hill), sophomore Margaret Anderson iPenfield, NY) and senior Janet Clements fVernon Hill). Robin Andrews (Woodlawn), Janet Kelly Hingham, MS) and Sharon Gilmore fPatchoque, NY» are the three freshmen who should give Ixmgwood golf a big boost. Andrews, who will likely land a spot in the top five along with Kelly, was low medalist in the Virginia State Amateur Golf Association Tournament in August with a quality inn round of 74 Sought by several major universities, Andrews once smacked a tee shot 280 yards to

win the longest drive competition in the State Juniors Tournament. Like Andrews, Kelly was ;i member of the boys' varsity golf team during her high school career. The Ixmgwood freshman finished fifth in the Women's (loll Association of Massachusetts Edith Baker Trophy Tournament over the summer. Despite competing in Division II of the VAIAW, Ixmgwood will face some of the country's top Division I women's golf teams in the fall and spring. The Ixady I oncers will compete in the Appalachian State University Invitational, the Duke Invitational and the Lady Tar Heel Invitational (Chapel Hill) in the coming weeks, as well as several tournaments in Virginia ,(ii •
