Gotham Gal Pure Entertainment A Review by ROBERT P. WEBBER The Ixmgwood Players opened their 1979-80 season with a spirited performance of a new

comedy. The play, which won the CAME TO DINNER and MAME. prestigious Southeastern Theater It is pure entertainment, with Conference Playwriting scarcely a serious thought to be Competition in 1977, is in the found. The Players gave it a tradition of THE MAN WHO rambunctious production which nearly made up in enthusiasm what it lacked in polish. The play revolves about Geraldine, a forty-ish, somewhat faded beauty who runs a boarding house. Her boarders include a deaf-mute television critic, a policeman Ixrthario, an actress who can only get animal roles in children's theater, a brutish stepfather, and a newspaper reporter son. Various other eccentrics come and go. Such roles are choice plums for character actors, and Jack Tolbert, as the deaf-mute, Diane Wright, as the son's naive girlfriend, Tom Willis, as an adult who still wants to play Little League baseball, and Kerry McCarthy, as the actress, realized their comic potentials. Rusty Hurley's stepfather looked like a cross between Richard Nixon and Steve Martin, and he got his share of laughs. Marshall Jones showed a nice sense of Photo by Tony M*»on

Discussion Brings A Closer Look By DEBBIE NORTHERN Four major topics of discussion were brought up at the StudentFaculty Retreat October 23. Suggestions were made and questions asked on the subjects of registration, freshman housing, intercollegiate athletics and costs and energy. About 100 students and faculty members participated in this event sponsored by the Student Government Association. Registration comments urged a return to summer Academic Planning Sessions, and sending freshmen information packets on how to register. In general, several groups felt that advisors should be in I-ankford during a certain period the day of registration, having an add-drop day before registration for those who might have pre-registered to change classes, and registration by year and alphabetically. Also there was a suggestion to extend freshman registration for more than a day. Most participants felt that mens and womens sports should remain equal. There were mainly questions under the Intercollegiate Athletics topic. Requests were made for a breakdown of cost by sport listing the number and amount of scholarships, cost of transportation and equipment

costs. Scholarships were another point of contention as both students and faculty were interested in learning how much aid is awarded at Ixmgwood and where the funds come from. There was a major concern over whether Longwood should stress certain sports and deemphasize others. They felt the Intercollegiate Athletic Committee needed more student representation, particularly by non-athletes and to be more open. It was determined that the students needed to become more aware of energy conservation. Turning off lights and water campaigns, articles in The Rotunda and turning heat down in dormitory rooms and academic buildings were suggested. A monthly competition between the dormitories may be initiated. The consensus of the Retreat was to keep the tradition of freshman housing. Suggestions were made to determine how many freshmen are housed with upperclassmen, to take a campus poll on how students feel about mixing freshmen with upperclassmen, and to relocate dissatisfied freshmen with other freshmen as soon as possible. In addition to Freshman dorms, there may be freshman halls in

the future. It was felt that sophomores faced with housing problems could better handle the pressure. Also Mr. Tom Nanzig, Director of Housing, stated that he would like to not surprise people next year with a third roommate. He proposes to mark rooms in advance that would be considered triples if the need arose. In this way the people who signed up for these rooms would be aware of that fact. A final concern was that of Judicial Board including narcotics under the Honor System. The Board is currently reviewing the problem. Retreat ideas on this subject included creating two separate boards—an Honor Council to handle Honor Code offenses and a Judicial Board to handle narcotics, and a permanent group of drug investigators— either Administrative or Students. Most students and faculty members present were concerned with the safety of students enforcing this law. After talking for several hours, the groups had dinner and met for a final review of the afternoon. In all, several good ideas were offered for the betterment of the school.

comic timing as the policeman, but his voice was inaudible to much of the audience. Doug Blevins, playing the son, was handicapped by some oafish friends in the audience who shouted, "Oh, Doug," whenever he came on stage. He acted much better than the audience deserved. John Crosby, Neil Sawyer, and particularly Chris Conner did well in supporting roles. Geraldine was acted by Vicki Mann. Miss Mann has a fine voice, her gestures are flawless, and her timing is impeccable. She was able to curse naturally better than anyone else in the cast. That is not idle praise. Many actors innocently emphasize curse words in dialogue, and the sound harsh and offensive as a result. Done properly, stage cursing should sound like natural speech, and Miss Mann accomplished that. However, she simply looked twenty years too young for the part. That was partially her fault, for Geraldine's smooth cheeks and neck belied her age. A few wrinkles on the forehead do not make a person look old. Neither does a head of heavily sprayed grey hair, as Rusty Hurley, playing the stepfather, demonstrated. The set, designed by Patton Lockwood, was gorgeous. It looked as solid as a rock. Nothing trembled when a character ran up the stairs or slammed the door. Richard Gamble's lighting

design put plenty of light on the state, in welcome contrast to some recent dimly-lit Player productions. The costume crew must have worked overt inn, because the actors seemed to change costumes between every scene. Props looked good, but someone forgot to give the policeman a gun to go with his uniform. Director Douglas M. Young aimed for a frantic comic pace. Often he achieved it. For example, the beginning scene of Act II, when Geraldine's long lost boyfriend (played by Chris Conner) enters and encounters a parade of the eccentric boarders, was a gem. The pace was not consistent, however. The creaking Jarman chairs showed the audience's restlessness. There were times, particularly in the first act, when the characters needed more flamboyance. The play needed a scene stealer. Jack Tolbert came close with his whistle blowing and energetic pantomime. Any of the boarders, had they exaggerated their characters a little more, could have had the audience gasping with laughter. The IiOngwood Players are to be congratulated for scheduling plays this season which have wide audience, as well as intellectual, appeal. A theater's purpose must be to entertain as well as to educate, and A Former Gotham Gal got the year at Jarman off to a good start start.

Management Study Underway By MELODY CRAWLEY A state operated team of "management specialists" have begun their study of college operations, according to Chairman Jim Mills of the State Department of Management Analysis and Systems Development. The team is a part of the Management Support Program provided to requesting state agencies by Governor John N. Dalton. The team consists of representatives from five executive state agencies: Management Analysis and Systems Development, Personnel and Training, Planning and Budget, Accounting, and General Services (Engineering and

Building). They will make final recommendations in November on ways to streamline operations and save money. Before that time, they will be examing college records and meeting with various groups of faculty and students. Chairman Mills explains that this is an advisory and consultive team offered to state services in early July. Ix>ngwood is receiving the specialists at President Henry I. Willett, Jr.'s request. After receiving the final recommendations, Longwood will break them into three categories, according to President Willett. Some will be accepted, some will be reacted, and the others will be studied further by college officials.

Student Counselors Named BySHARONJANOVICH "The purpose of this organization shall be to insure the general welfare of the student body, to promote the cultural, intellectual, and personal development of the students and to strengthen unity, loyalty, and understanding in all aspects of college life. This organization shall maintain self-government and encourage individual responsibility among the students of Longwood College" — (Section 2: Judicial Board Constitution). The Judicial Board, along with Residence and Legislative Boards, work to promote harmony among the College community. In the event of dishonesty, cheating or other violations of the Honor Code, the individual is summoned to appear in front of the Judicial Board. In doing so, the charged person is greeted and consoled by a Student Counselor. The student counselors for 1979 are: 1) Tracey Hormuth 2) Tammy Bird 3) Christi Lewis 4) Sharon Janovich 5) Berkeley Harland 6) Brenda Carpenter 7) Vicki Mathewson 8) Cheryl Wilcox 9) Ceresa Haney 10) Tricia Whitehurst. Student counselors are trained by Dr. John Peale (Iiegislative Board Advisor) and Teresa McLawhorn (Judicial Board Chairman).Their duties are to 1)

Represent the best interest of the person charged. 2) To aid in personal help or assistance to the individual. 3) To represent the accused — not speak for them. 4) To understand and explain the procedures during the trials and appeals. 5) To be present at an appeals when it would best serve the individual charged. The student assistants are selected to aid the charged individual, and allow him-her to have someone to consult during Judicial Board trials.

Joins New Department By BARBARA BAKER Over the summer, the Department of English and Philosophy became the Department of English, Philosophy and Foreign language. The move has been a beneficial as well as economic one for I/mgwood. Dr. Carolyn Wells, Dean of the College, said that over the past several years there has been a nationwide decline in the enrollment of foreign language students in colleges due to the deemphasis on foreign language in high schools. At present, there are only four foreign language teachers at I/)ngwood. Dr. Wells (Continued on Page 8)

THE ROTUNDA

Tuesday, October 2, 1979

Features Michael Johnson Michael Johnson, the singer and guitarist noted for his 1978 recording success of the ballad, "Bluer Than Blue," will appear in Jarman Auditorium Wednesday night, October 3, at 8 p.m. Johnson's music has the kind of diversity, depth, and sophistication that take years of wide-ranging experience to

develop. One of his albums titled For All You Mad Musicians, shows a true representation of his soft, melodic jazz-folk approach, his classical-Flamenco influences, and his dexterity with harmonics and light percussive effects. His approach to song interpretation has been described as more practiced than inspired.

Yet, his first single, "Bluer than Blue" is a powerful ballad which tries to reason away the pain of a once strong, now shattered relationship. Some of Johnson's other hits include "Almost like Being in Love," "Sailing Without a Sail" and "Dancing Tonight." Also appearing in concert that night is an entertainer who returns to Longwood for his fourth consecutive year. Barry Drake has a unique talent, and a sensitivity and love for what he is doing. As gently as a wandering traubador, he sings convincingly of life, its ups and downs, the good and the bad — and in doing so, carries the listener on a musical journey. In a mellow style, Drake weaves an easy fantasy in a variety of songs from "Blues for Hobo Joe" to "Over the Rainbow." Tickets are on sale in the Student Union office. The price is $2.50 for I/Higwood students and $4 for General Admission.

Faulk Speaks On Folklore

King Presents Film By CHRIS VOGEL The Student Union Lecture Series will present "Song of the Northern Prairie," an Audubon Wildlife Film, personally presented by Allen J. King, tonight at 8 p.m. in the Red-White rooms. "The vast northern prairie spreads for many miles across North Central United States and South Central Canada." Here King captures on film the many forms of wildlife found in the prairie and their significance to this environment. The film will also show how man and nature, both biological and physical, has manipulated the land.

Allen King got started in wildlife photography at an AWF program at Jackson Community College in Michigan. He became an active member in his local Audubon Society, where he met wildlife cinematographers Walter and Myrna Berlet, who encouraged him to become a wildlife photographer. When not filming or lecturing, King continues his studies in Wildlife Biology at Michigan State University. The film-lecture is free for faculty and students with I.D. cards. General Admission is $1.00. Tickets are available in the Student Union office.

By PAULA JOHNSON John Henry Faulk, noted folklorist and star of the Hee Haw television series, was on campus last week for American Folk Culture Week. While here, Faulk participated in Longwood's SRO radio show, gave a speech on Monday, and a press conference. Faulk stated that he became interested in folklore while in College whereas his interests in Negro folk culture began as a child. "It had created a profound effect on our culture and we didn't recognize it," he said. Faulk did his Masters thesis on "Ten Negro Sermons". "People would laugh at you when they found out you were interested in it," stated Faulk. His research attracted much attention and he became an authority on the subject. "The key to the study of the black American was the study of his folk culture." When asked how storytelling evolved, Faulk replied, "It's cultivated. The custom of storytelling was a means of transmitting to the younger how life used to be." Faulk went on to

By THOM HANDS I-ast Wednesday in the Gold Room, Elaine Silver, accomplished entertainer, performed for Longwood students. At 3 p.m., she gave a workshop for all interested students, and at 8 p.m., she gave a concert of traditional songs from Ireland, England, and the United States. During her workshop, Ms. Silver familiarized students with the Dulcimer. The dulcimer is a traditional American Folk instrument that originated in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Ms. Silver allowed curious students to strum her handmade instrument. The evening performance included tunes played on her

guitar and banjo as well as her dulcimer. The small, but enthusiastic, audience was entranced by her talented collaboration of voice and instruments. Ms. Silver has been performing for the past eight years. She lives in Montville, New Jersey, where she was most musically influenced by her friends, especially Judy Collins. She spends much of her time performing at colleges such as IiOngwood, playing Blues, Jazz, and Swing tunes. The dulcimer was introduced to her at a 1972 Folk Festival in Philadelphia. Joni Mitchell's use of the dulcimer also prompted Ms. Silver to obtain one and teach herself to play.

Dear Editors: Any newspaper, if it is to serve its function, must be objective, unbiased and most of all completely honest with all parties concerned. To recognize the value of newspapers as important instruments in molding public opinion, all one has to do is to go back to the recent Watergate era. We can all easily conclude and be thankful that there truly is no substitute for good and honest reporting. Consequently, I take issue with and find particularly offensive and deplorable your headline of September 18,1979 "Special Jury Gears Longwood", the follow-up story and your editorial on page 4 of the same paper. Your apparent willingness to sweep the whole matter under the rug as just another unimportant and casual event is frightening to me and should be a mystery to all who have read the Special Grand Jury's Second Interim Report. I feel that the record must be set straight for those students, faculty, and administrators who may have doubts regarding this

Sometimes it becomes necessary for a newspaper (mainly the editors) to explain their practices to the readers of their paper. Especially, if the readers feel that the newspaper is involved in some kind of "cover-up" scandal. We in no way meant to "cover-up" anything concerning Longwood's appearance before the special Richmond grand jury. The jury investigation took place during the summer months when The Rotunda was not in publication. However, President Willett was contacted by the newspaper in July and at that time was not available for an interview. He replied to The Rotunda in a letter that he would, "sit down and go through this with you in more detail," which he did after the semester began. The article in the September 18th edition, "Special Jury Clears Longwood," had several purposes. It was written to inform the students that there had been a jury investigation of Longwood and other state agencies, that they had been possible "unwilling parties to a bidding fraud," and that they had been "cleared" of any "illegal activity." Or, as stated in the lead sentence of the article, the "jury found insufficient evidence in July to recommend criminal prosecution of Longwood officials." All of these were stated in the article. We do not find the headline "deplorable" on our part — in the fact that Longwood was "cleared" of illegal activity. The jury did find and used Longwood "to highlight certain of the inadequacies found throughout the state's educational institutions." They also found that good procedures were not followed and suggested that the procedures be changed. The editorial in that same issue had intended purpose, too. It was supposed to untie any connections with the management study and the jury investigation. President Willett had made that fact very clear to The Rotunda and the fact was confirmed by the chairman of the team, Jim Mills, last week. The management team will make their recommendations in November. The other point intended by the editorial was whether or not Longwood would continue operations with Media Directions, the firm in question. The Rotunda is not willing "to sweep the whole matter under the rug as just another unimportant and casual event." If that were true, the story would have never been printed on September 18. Let us also say that the world is not "flat and square and free of prejudice;" If that were true we would have fallen off the world years ago. Instead, we must hope that since the state has set up certain guidelines or procedures for state purchasing which were not in existence before the jury that Longwood's "shoddy" procedures will be improved. MCC

Report. The Special Grand Jury Report did not completely clear Longwood College. It only cleared Longwood from criminal negligence and criminal wrongdoing and nothing else. The following quotes from the Special Grand Jury's Second Interim Report prove my point: 1) The relationship between Longwood College, Media Directions, Inc. and Stein Printing, Inc. was used to highlight certain of the inadequacies found throughout the State's educational institutions (p. 1). 2)I/ongwood was accused of being an equally obnoxious example of using restrictive specifications involving the printing specifications submitted by College officials in the summer of 1976 (p. 2). "The printing specifications longwood College submitted to the Department of Purchases and Supply were drafted by Media Directions, Inc., (Media) an advertising firm, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Stein Printing Company (Stein)" (p. 3). According to the Report, "even if no corruption was found, as in the case of Longwood, the potential for waste of tax payers' money is appalling, and this at a time when professional educators are seeking more money" (p. 3). 3) "Media prepared the brochure and a set of specifications to be used to bid the printing" (p. 4). The printing contract was awarded to Stein Printing Company. "Stein was the vendor recommended for the job by I x>nuwood College" (p. 4). 4) "There was no written contract between Media and Longwood. The terms of the contract between Media and Ixongwood were contained in the two Media letters referred to earlier (in the Report). I.ongwood did not have the right to review the invoices of expenditures made by Media on the College's behalf (p. 5). This, as any student in contract law knows, could open Pandora's box. 5) "More to the point, all of these facts were known to the officials of the College, and yet they did nothing to insure that Media was not subsidizing Stein's printing. This failure was compounded by permitting Media to develop printing specifications. No procedure existed for insuring that the specifications were fair" (p. 5). 6) Even as late as 1976 ix)ngwood entered into a much more extensive contract with Media. Once again there was no written contract between the College and Media. Most important, however, is the fact that the procedure used to accomplish this procurement diffused responsiblity among a wide circle of people. No one was responsible for the performance of the contract" (pp. 5-6). This goes back to the adage that everyone was responsible so no one was. 7) "In August, 1976, Media forwarded the specifications for 10 of the proposed publications to the College. The College, after cursory review, forwarded these to the Department of Purchases and Supply who incorporated them into an invitation to bid. These specifications are misleading" (p. 6). 8) "The procedure followed by Ix)ngwood in preparing these specifications prevented fair specifications from being written" (p.7). i Continued on Page 8)

Senior Spotlight

Miss Clay Active On Campus

By SHARONJANOVICH Longwood students have grown accustomed to seeing Alice Clay's friendly smile all over campus, therefore, it is necessary to recognize Alice's involvement in campus activities, as well as her academic achievements. Alice is majoring in Elementary Education, and English, certifying in Math. Upon graduation in May 1980, she will begin her career by teaching elementary education, while working on her Master's in English.

Alice is involved in numerous extracurricular activities. She is the Geist secretary, senior advisor of Alpha Lambda Delta, Historian of Kappa Delta Pi (education honorary), Tafara music director and guitar player, orientation leader, resident assistant, Phi Kappa Phi (national Honor Society) and secretary of Zeta Tau Alpha Social Sorority. ■Sometimes my being so involved with college activities makes me sacrifice extra moments which I should put into studying, into an extracurricular activity. However, although I may not do quite as well on a test or paper, I am learning just as much and growing just as much by assuming responsibilities and working with all sorts of people. I am so excited about Oktoberfest! I'll be the chairman of ticket selling, and will be running the information booth, and am looking so forward to it! I am particularly happy about the Juniors and Seniors who showed up for skits. I have several friends who have never been involved before, but are participating in skits this year, and are just as

enthusiastic as the freshmen! I think it's great, and I know Oktoberfest will be a huge success. I feel that if there was one thing 1 could change or improve on bur campus, it would be our Student Union. They do an excellent job, but their lack of funds does not allow them to do what they could do to get everyone participating. I'd like this to be a college where other college students came for the weekend, instead of us always leaving to visit other colleges for the weekend! "The thing I have loved most about Ixmgwood is the warmth of the atmosphere and the willingness of professors to bend over backwards to help their students. I know that I've had many professors do that for me, and they are terrific. I am looking forward to teaching elementary grades and I hope to get married in the near future. I look forward to raising a family and being a successful teacher." Longwood wishes the best of luck to senior Alice Clay, who through much hard work and dedication, should make a fine teacher.

Oktoberfest Is Coming Klowns, Skits, Booths, Meisters, Ushers Concerts . . . these are just a few of the spirited Oktoberfest groups that will make this year's "Oktoberfest der Geist" weekend the best weekend ever. The fifty-second annual celebration will be held October 26,27, and 28, and is run by Geist. This year's Gei^t officers are: President — Cin^y Morris, in charge of the klowns; Vice President — Teresa Ware, in charge of Midway and the paint battles, Secretary — Alice Clay, in charge of the information booth and ticket sales. Other Geist members will manager certain aspects of Oktoberfest: Charlie Mason, Red and Green advisor; Donna Hasky, in charge of food preparation, Cindy Cummins, in charge of Publicity; Jan Bates, in charge of ushers and meisters. Debbie Northern is the overall Oktoberfest Chairman. "We began preparing last spring," said Debbie Northern. She went on to say, "We started ordering posters, T-shirts, balloons and everything. We even got the Clowns of America to be present during Oktoberfest for face painting! Midway this year is really big! We have so many people wanting booths, that in order to accommodate everyone, we had to set up tables. This year on Midway we'll have a Mime Group and all of the usual booths, along with the Dunking booth. The Ushers and Meisters are moving right along and everything is progressing as we planned. I only wish that more people would get involved." The action begins Tuesday night at 6:30 when the sophomores and freshmen engage in the messy (but fun) challenge of Paint Battle. The red and green paint will be flying on Wheeler Mall, then. The Reds and Greens vie in other ways in the competition for the Oktoberfest cup. Skits, class

booths and color rush all add points to their tally. Skits will be presented Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets will go on sale after Fall break. All seats are reserved. Committees have already written scripts, and chosen the cast for the two plays. Set construction, costume making, and rehearsals will begin soon. Saturday will bring the Midway, H20 shows, one-act plays, and the "Pops Concert." According to Dr. Louard E. Egbert, chairman of the Music department, the college's newly formed Jazz Ensemble will join the Concert Choir at 1 p.m. for the annual "Pops Concert." Midway will open at 2 p.m. with games, food and souvenirs for sale from approximately 50 different campus organizations: The booths will sell a variety of things from pretzels and root beer to mugs, sun visors, and Tshirts. This year there will be something new sponsored by the Inter-Religious Council. The IRC will have a door decorating contest. All contestants must have their room or suite doors decorated in a German or Oktoberfest theme by Tuesday, October 23. Prizes will be two tickets to skits Saturday night, plus more surprises awarded that

night. Also, a spirit board will be up all day Saturday for the Greens and Reds to paint with spirited thoughts! Following the skits Saturday night, there will be an alumni CHI Walk and cake cutting. This year's Oktoberfest is shaping up and progressing as expected. "I'm looking forward to 100 per cent participation in Oktoberfest this year. It will be terrific, and I can't wait for it," said Debbie Northern.

Soon we will begin to see the soft beauty and glorious wonder of the colorful coming of fall The change In the season; the subtle growth; a unique energy is found and strength built even as it seems t<be lost and fallen.

French Building Versitile By MARY GRANT The French Building serves a variety of purposes to Longwood students by providing housing, a gymnasium, a swimming pool and classrooms. The building was originally known as The Student Building. It was constructed under the presidency of Dr. Joseph L. Jarman. Plans were begun in

Tafara Chosen By BETH PARROTT Tafara, the Baptist Student Union folk team, is anxiously awaiting the beginning of a new year. Tryouts were held last week and now they are getting all tuned-up for a successful year. Pam Wagner, president, is very enthusiastic about this year's group. Returning members are Pam Wagner, Kim Duncan, Jan Jennings, Jane Edmunds and Suzanne Bryant New members were chosen in try outs recently. They include Steve Janasko, Chris Vontsalos, Elaine tassiter, Carol Atkins, and Kathy Buck. The Tafara group travels to Virginia Churches representing Longwood College and the Baptist Student Union.

Foster Parents Needed Therapeutic foster care for disturbed teenagers will soon be available in this area. The Crossroads Mental Health Services in Farmville are recruiting foster parents to provide help and support to teens facing crises. The search for responsive homes for teens is centered in the seven county area which includes Buckingham, Cumberland, Charlotte, Prince Edward, Lunenburg, Amelia, and Nottoway counties. Training for Foster Parents, selected for this new program will be provided by a mental health professional team.

Following twenty hours of training, foster parents will be paid to be part of the program while providing supportive care for an adolescent. The professional team will provide continuing help and advice to the foster parents. Foster parents will receive an income as well as child support funds. They will be provided with opportunities to increase their skills and income as they acquire experience. Judith Halpern, Therapeutic Foster Care Coordinator, is recruiting foster parents who have demonstrated an interest in, and concern for teens. She is looking for people who have had experience in leading teen groups or teaching. Experience with teen groups such as 4H, Scouts, Church work, Big Brothers, or other similar teen activities will be helpful. Area homemakers will now have an opportunity to improve their skills and earn money, while, at the same time offering a needed service to the community and to a specific young person. Those who are interested and want more information may call Mrs. Halpern at Farmville's Crossroads Mental Health Center, 392-3187, collect.

1911 and construction was completed in 1924. It was one of the most popular projects ever initiated on campus, with $100,000 of the $150,000 needed, raised b> students, faculty and friends. Aside from being a gathering place for students, the Student Building contained the student government rooms, sorority chapter rooms, a prayer room and a small auditorium. The building was dedicated in March of 1969 to Raymond H. French, a chemistry professor. French came to Ix>ngwood in 1929 and was an active participant in college activities during his 35 year tenure. He was concerned with the welfare of students and was the initiator of fire drills at IiOngwood College.

Riders Take Ribbons

Thomas And Lewis

Outstanding Athletes Named

By CHUCK COLE A setter is as important to a volleyball team as a quarterback is to a football team. Both are responsible for coordinating the offense and calling the plays, and must display characteristics of leadership and hustle in order to lead their team to victory. I^ady lancer Volleyball player Cindy Thomas (Buchanan) displayed these virtues in keying I-ongwood's 15-3,15-9,15-7 victory over Randolph-Macon Woman's College last week in the debut of the 1979 Lancer team. For her efforts, Thomas has been named Longwood Player of the Week. Longwood coach Carolyn Callaway felt Thomas' play was

CINDY "C. T." THOMAS

outstanding in the win over RMWC. "Though this is Cindy's first year as setter, she was a key to our win," said the coach. "She held the team together in calling the plays and in setting up balls for our hitters to put away. In general, she was the best player on the floor." No stranger to the leadership role, Thomas served as captain of her volleyball, basketball and track teams at James River High School in Buchanan. Judging by the number of sports she has participated in, Cindy is a tremendously versatile athlete. Named All-District basketball in 1974 and 1975, Thomas was selected "Most Athletic" among the members of her graduating class at James River. She has played two seasons for the Lady Lancer basketball team, in addition to playing volleyball four years. Thomas also finds time for the academic side of college life. A Health and Physical Education major, Cindy hopes to continue her career in the area of athletic training. She was a member of the National Honor Society in high school, named in Who's Who Among American High School Students, and received a Future Teacher's of America scholarship. Cindy, known to her team mates as CT, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Willis G. Ransone

Division Decision By IAC Soon By FRANK CREASY The Intercollegiate Athletic Council is in the process of making a decision which will affect the NCAA division status of men's teams at I-ongwood. According to Dr. T.C. Dalton, the Council is expected to decide this week whether or not men's sports will compete in Division II or III of the NCAA. For the IAC, the ruling may be difficult to come by, as the situation is touchy at best. There are quite a few considerations to be taken into account. Several of the men's teams at Longwood are just beginning to gain respectability, and the entire program is in itself still in its infancy. Moving up to Division II would mean playing bigger schools. But there are advantages to the switch; for one, the men would be able to receive scholarships, which is prohibited among Division HI schools. Also, Longwood is presently an independent school, and changing to Division II would make it easier for lancer teams to enter into a conference. The subject of changing to Division II is not new to the IAC. I*»st spring, the council discussed and voted on the issue, and the result was a tie. At that time, the matter was tabled until it could be resolved in the fall. It is difficult what the IAC ruling will be, but the suspense should not last long. If the decision is postponed past this week, the Council is still compelled to make a decision soon, as the teams are already beginning to form their schedules for the 1980-81 school year. With the construction of the new athletic complex proceeding to its completion date, questions

have been raised as to how the new facility will affect the sports program. As you might except, there are no easy answers to this problem. Obviously, every team cannot conveniently use the new building, and it would be absurd to condemn the other gyms as obsolete. With this in mind, the IAC has the unhappy task of informing some teams that they will not be housed in the new complex. Many factors will affect the decisions; the average number of spectators at an event will likely be considered. Also, the very nature of the sports themselves would have an effect: while the wrestling and volleyball teams find Her a suitable home, the gymnastics team could not, as there is not enough room or storage space for their equipment and competition. If this seems vague and uncertain, do not worry — it is. The IAC is hardly near a decision of any type, and since it will be some time yet before the new gym is finished, there is really no need for any swift movements. Meanwhile, do not hold your breath.

of Buchanan. Sophomore tennis player Christi Lewis has been named I-ongwood's Player of the Week for her contribution and unblemished record in the Lancer victories against Lynchburg, Averett, anc Southern Seminary. lancer tennis coach Phyllis Harris had high praise for Lewis. "Christi played exceptionally well against Southern Seminary," said Harriss. "She kept her composure and really played up to her capabilities. She used her head as well as her tennis ability." "I feel Christi has definitely improved over the past two weeks," the coach continued. "She has great desire to improve her game, and it shows in how hard she works in practice." I^ewis is no stranger to practice and hard work. While attending Gloucester High School, she played both tennis and field hockey. She has also seen action for the Lancer field hockey team. Hard work has paid off for Christi Lewis. Her senior year in high school brought many awards and championships to the Lewis home in Gloucester Point, VA. Among these awards were the District Singles and Doubles Championships, Most Valuable Player award of the Gloucester High tennis team, and senior class, Best Ail-Around Athlete (Continued on Page 8)

TR

Growing

By SUSAN TOWLER The Therapeutic Recreation department at Longwood College is growing. The curriculum, the junior internships, senior internships, and the Therapeutic Recreation Organization are all in a period of adjustment or change. There are more courses offered in the T.R. curriculum because the junior internship is now completed during the summer after the junior year. This added semester offers extra courses that increase the T.R. majors potential. This semester leaves room for electives. In addition to the academic growth, the T.R. department offers a club called the Therapeutic Recreation Organization. The TRO, composed of T.R. majors, sends students to help with events such as Special Olympics. The Therapeutic Recreation Organization is indeed a group of hard working students who spend their non-class time for their major. All in all, the Therapeutic Recreation department at Longwood is attracting more students each year. It appears that the T.R. faculty and students are working well together to make the T.R. major at Longwood strong.

CHRISTI LEWIS

IAA By SUSAN TOWLER The IAA has recently acquired a new officer, sophomore Chris Ruppel, who was installed as Vice President on September 20. The IAA is really happy with this new officer and extends a big welcome to her. Intramural flag football results will be in the next issue of The Rotunda. Several games were rained out last week and they had to move up on the schedule. Coming up in the month of October is Track and Field. This is scheduled for October 31. Due to colder weather, this date is subject to change. Read the IAA bulletin board and the Daily Bulletin for word on the correct date. An idea that the IAA is working on is the possibility of sponsoring a runner's club for Longwood students. If anyone is interested in this idea, please let the IAA know your response through letters or verbal means at the October 18 meeting. Any person who is interested in managing IAA bowling, please let Ms. Callaway or Chris Ruppel know. Bowling begins November 5. Any help with managing an IAA sport is appreciated. The IAA needs your support.

Netters Second Sweep By STEVE WHITTEN The Longwood netters played two matches this week. They completely wiped out Southern Seminary 9-0 on Thursday and dropped a 7-2 loss to James Madison University on Saturday. In Tuesday's match with Southern Seminary the competition was not as strong as previous matches. Longwood swept all singles and doubles, none going three sets. This was the second 9-0 match score for the netters this year. Facing a tough competition Saturday afternoon, the netters lost their first match. Longwood won the number one seed match with Nancy Leidenheimer completely dominating JMU's Heidi Hess 6-2, 6-2. Also number five seed Jill Foster defeated her JMU opponent in three sets 4-6,60,6-1. The only other match to go into three sets was the number 1 doubles team of Leidenheimer and McLawhom bowing to Hess and Tyler of JMU, 64, 4-6, 6-1. Coach Harriss commented that JMU was "The most real competition they have faced this year," but that the team played extremely well. Yesterday (Monday) the netters traveled to Mary Baldwin College to try to break the 18 year losing streak against Mary Baldwin. Coach Harriss feels this is the year that the Longwood tennis team will beat MBC.

Rhonda Woody, Robin Hungate, Connie Murray, and Sherry Will played well and kept the team's hope alive. Though Ixmgwood lost this match, their determination to win held up to the end. In the second match with Liberty Baptist, Ixmgwood won 15-13 and 15-9. Contributing greatly to this win were Julie Petefish, Connie Murray, Sherry Will, and Kathy Gunning. According to Coach Callaway, the Longwood College basketball team is working together very well and they are continuing to put together the offense and defense in a way that works. The next home game is with Hampton Institute and Ferrum College on Thursday, October 4 at 6 p.m. There are also matches to be played at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to come support the team.

Soccer Team Appears Awesome

Betty Stanley outmaneuvers a Richmond defender.

By CHUCK COLE The longwood soccer finally showed how it can flex its muscles as it overpowered a weak Greensboro College team 52 on Saturday afternoon. Greensboro was quick to apply pressure to the Lancer hooters as they took the early lead on a Robert Rahn goal with 4:51 expired in the first half. Longwood took the initiative and the offense of the Lancers was reborn, or came out of a fouryear hibernation. Ken Gebbie was credited with the first Ixmgwood tally as he bounced his direct kick from the right hand corner off the head of Kenny Barnwell, a Greensboro defender, into the net behind helpless Greensboro goalie Barry Toler. The Lancers continued to control the ball on offense as Gus Leal scored on a penalty kick from directly in front of the Greensboro net. LeaTs goal came

Hope It Lasts with 24:58 expired in the half and is his first goal of the season. Gebbie notched his second goal of the game as he scored unassisted at the 27:46 mark of the half. The second half saw Ixmgwood continue domination of the Greensboro defense as they kept the pressure in the Hornet's end of the field. Mario Ix'al added his first goal of the season as he beat the Greensboro defenders in the middle of the half. But Longwood was not finished with their brutal attack of the Hornets. Gebbie notched his third goal of the game as he scored unassisted a scant four minutes and twenty-six seconds after the Leal goal. Coach Rich Posipanko was freely substituting when Greensboro scored their other goal of the game. I-incer goalie Bud Atkins, who had just entered the game, was helpless as Captain Bob Brewer of the

Hornets headed a Scott Tysinger pass into the lancer net. Ixmgwood displayed some of the key things that they need to do in order to win. The lancers were keeping the ball on offense which took some of the pressure off of the previously overworked defense. Greensboro College recorded only 13 shots on goal while the Lancer hooters pummeled the Hornet net with 32 shots. This marks the first time this season that the I^ancers have dominated in this statistical department. The I oncers were also able to rewrite some Ixmgwood soccer records in the Greensboro game. Ken Gebbie is the first Ixmgwood player to score the "hat trick" of three goals in one game. A hat trick is not common in the sport of soccer. Five goals is a record for lancer goals scored in one game and indicates that the offense is improving. The lancers stand at 2-4 on the season. They face intrastate rival Virginia Wesleyan on Wednesday in Norfolk before traveling to Hampden-Sydney for the "Classic Battle" on Friday.

The winners of the Frazer Backgammon Tournament held September 26-27 were: Beginners - Delanie Brown Intermediate — Allen "Byrd" Butler Advanced — Elizabeth Bauer

Your Turn (Continued from Page 4) 9) "Oddly enough, all of these facts, including the substantial likelihood that Media's consulting fees were being used to subsidize Stein's printing bid, were known to the officials of the College. Armed with this information, they did nothing to protect the College and the Department of Purchases and Supply from becoming unwilling parlies to a bidding fraud" (p. 7). Notice how this differs from The Rotunda report. 10) "In the Ix)ngwood College situation we do not know if the College could have saved money by using good purchasing •irocedures, rather than the shoddy ones that were followed" ip. 8). After reading the Special irand Jury's Second Interim Report, if anyone still believes that the Grand Jury completely cleared I-ongwood then one must be prepared to accept that the world is flat and square and free of prejudice.

"Longgate" Over? Dear Editors and Student Body, Witergate is over, Koreagate ■ r, but there is one gate that is still not over and that one is longgate". Yes, there is a possibility of some type of corruption at Ix)ngwood. The headline of the September 18th

edition of the Rotunda read: "Special Jury Clears I-ongwood," a lot of students did not know that Ix>ngwood was even unclear. As a student who is semiconcerned, semi-suspicious, and semi-literate, I believe the whole story is not out, even though the final report of the special jury is out and can be observed in the library. No corruption was found as the report stated in the case of IiOngwood on page three, but on page five there is written proof Longwood officials know of some wasteful procedures and did nothing about it. A college can not do business without written contracts but Longwood and Media Directions, Inc. did. The report also stated Longwood used shoddy" purchasing procedures and I would like to know who is responsible and how and why this can happen? "These procedures must be changed" is the last line of the report before recommendations for better procedures were made. Since the exposure of these "shoddy" procedures have been made I believe Longwood will correct them, but I also believe the whole story is not out. I just hope the majority of the student body knows what this letter is all about. Jimmy Bryant

(Continued from Page 2) stated that the move enabled a "more efficient use of space and personnel." Because of the concurrent need to offer more English courses, some foreign language professors are teaching English bringing these two fields together in a natural alliance under the study of humanities. Dr. Maria Silvera (a Spanish teacher), is very happy with the move to the English Department, however she misses the foreign language lab. She has known the faculty of this department, is friends with many members, and feels welcome. Dr. Silvera enjoys working with Dr. Massie Stinson, chairman of the English Department. Dr. Geoffrey Orth (the German teacher) said that there is a general trend for smaller departments to move in with larger ones and because English and Foreign Language have so many like interests, the move was a good idea. Both English and Foreign Language fields teach literature and offer a BA degree making the programs closely related. Dr. Orth said the move was "a real plus—a positive move." He is very pleased to be in with the English Department.
