Sixty-fifth year

Tuesday, September 24, 1985

In a decisive move to establish the authority of student-run disciplinary boards, the Student Government Association passed a motion last Thursday stating that Barb Gorski could no longer sit as advisor to both Honor Board and Judicial Board hearings. "It was felt by a majority of the Student Senate," stated SGA PoÂťlino President Garth Wentzel, "that Lancer cafe ribbon catting (from I to r) Farmville Mayor Crate, the position of Judicial Affairs Rick Johnson, Bob Cottrel, Darcie Brackett, Paul Striffolino, Dr. Sue Coordinator was a conflict of Saunders, and Garth Wentzel (again). interest with the position of the Monarchs stayed until 12:00. having a good time, Rob Turner, Rick Johnson was there for all cafe bartender, stated that the fun, he said he felt things "Lancer Cafe is where it's at." were going well, and the delay in The cafe offers burgers, the opening of the lounge area sandwiches, Mexican favorites, was because he wanted to stuffed potatoes, the old famous achieve the 'Grand Opening "itza" pizza and "fun foods." effect" by opening both sides at Each day there is a different special with live entertainment, once.

advisor." Wentzel went on to say that the Board should run without her or not at all until a faculty advisor could be appointed. Gorski, as Judicial Affairs Coordinator, is responsible for the administrative duties of the Honor-Judicial Boards. In the eyes of the Student Senate, Gorski appointed herself to the position. To remedy the situation, the SGA has sent letters to faculty members seeking a new advisor and hope to have one sometime next week.

"In Praise of Larry Holmes ByS.G.andP.R. In the press conference following the dethroning of boxing king, Larry Holmes, the public had an opportunity to see the true character of this upstanding individual. Holmes displayed tact, grace, poise and devastating wit in his conversation following his defeat at the hands of light-heavyweight Michael Spinks, Saturday night. When asked how he felt about falling short of the deceased Rocky Marciano's record of forty-nine successful title

Lancer Cafe opens By Kim Deaner The Lancer Cafe grand opening could not be postponed another day, as fate would have it, the festive ribbon cutting took place as scheduled on September 20. Garth Wentzel, president of SGA, said, "I'm glad I was able to come in here before I became an alumni." This appeared to be the general consensus of the crowd; they are sorry about the delay, but pleased with the $160,000 result. Those attending included Farmville Mayor Crute, Dr. Sue Saunders, Dean of Students Paul Streiffolino, Director of Student Union, Darcie Brackett, President of Student Union, Rick Johnson, Director of ARA Dining Services, Bob Cottrell, Mgr. Lancer Cafe, and Garth Wentzel, President of SGA. The evening began with free baked potatoes, and pizza. At 8:00

defenses, Mr. Holmes cleverly replied, "Rocky couldn't hold my jockstrap." Rumor has it that President Reagan is seeking Mr. Holmes' advice in regard to the upcoming summit talks. Mr. Holmes has already accepted an invitation to be the master of ceremonies at this fall's Oxford debate finals. In addressing the late Marciano's brother, Peter, Holmes conveyed a sense of tact with the classy statement, "Peter, you're just a free-loader living off your dead brother. In light of his eloquence, Mr.

The problem all began when Bill Wall, General Manager of The Herald, refused to print an editorial entitled, "Bypasses . . . One toke over the line . . ." by last year's editor-in-chief, Jeff Abernathy. In the editorial Abernathy used questionable language to explain fraternity and sorority pledging and the Greek system. Since termination of the contract on September 17, 1964, the Rotunda has been juggled between three different printers — The last being The Amelia Bulletin Monitor. When asked the reason for the change,

The Rotunda encourages all students to vote in the up-coming elections. Absentee ballots may be obtained at the Farmville Courthouse.

Rotunda moves back to The Herald Frank Raio, present editor-inchief, stated, "I started at Amelia because I felt that the print-type was more attractive than that at The Herald; as it turned out though, it seemed Amelia was training new typesetters. I mean it was worse than any high school paper. There were 'typos' everywhere and one advertiser even refused to pay for an ad because there were eleven errors." Raio seemed to be confident about his decision when he remarked, "I have talked things over with Bill Wall and feel certain that Mr. Wall and myself hold the same views about censorship and obscenity. Things will work out fine." So all you loyal Rotunda readers, the change should make this issue a real keeper.

On The Disciplinary System

Since the Student Government Association has taken decisive action to remove Barb Gorski from her posts as judicial and honor board advisor, it is no longer necessary for me to rage about this issue. Nevertheless, it is important for the Longwood community to know what the deal was. Barb Gorski, in the ever-changing administrative scheme of things, has been assigned the duty of judicial affairs coordinator. The judicial affairs coordinator, according to the student handbook (p. 69), "will review each case and make a referral to the appropriate hearing board or take administrative action." She compiles the facts of the case, decides if the case should go to the hearing stage, and if so, which board the case should go to. The coordinator then puts together a handout for the board members to review before the hearing. The role of the judicial affairs coordinator should end at this point. The students elected to the boards now hear the case, decide whether the accused is responsible or not; if found responsible, the students of the board choose a sanction for the student, a punishment. Last year, when I was on the judicial board, sanctions ranged anywhere from a verbal warning or educational task (researching and writing an essay on fire safety, for example), to suspension from school. Everything these student boards do, the findings and sanction, are carefully documented and sent (with a tape recording of all that has happened), to the Dean of Students for review. The Dean may then accept the recommendations of the boards or reject all recommendations and make up new ones. Most everybody is happy with this system, as this is the generally accepted way that most colleges do this type of thing. It is called a student-run system. The student part of the system only includes the actual hearing. Barb Gorski has seen fit to bring administrative input to the hearing. This is highly irregular, if not uncool. This situation was brought to my attention by board members who told me that Gorski was "playing the prosecutor" at the hearings. Gorski herself told me that she was in fact speaking at the hearings, "playing the devil's advocate," forcing some board members to look at points of view that they hadn't considered before. Gorski sees her current role as that of a model for the board

members to follow. She is "training" the board members. This simply does not flush right. On the-job-training during real cases? If the boards are not trained, stop all the cases and train them during mock trials or something. We can't play around with real students facing real trouble. What kind of training is required here anyway? All we want from these student board members is good judgement. How do you teach "good judgement?" Who decides what "good judgement" is? Who is to say banning Thursday night parties "good judgement"? Maybe. How long does it take to learn "good judgement" when the classes involve watching Barb Gorski's "good judgement?" Gorski told me that the board members must be familiar with the Kohlberg personality types in order to better know which sanctions will be effective with different people. This must be taught to board members. When asked, one honor board member said "Yea, she said something about that." One judicial board member said "Kohlberg, doesn't he play for the Yankees?" I guess the Kohlberg theory is on the agenda for next week's role model-lecture, because these board members are clue-less. I submit that even without Kohlberg, these board members will dish out fair sanctions that fit the violation. I would also guess that half of the U. S. Supreme Court judges do not know Kohlberg from Dave Winfield either. Gorski went on to say that if the board screws up, and lawyers arrive on the scene, the school will be in trouble. Is that a joke or what? The Dean of Student reviews each case, she has the authority to change each case. This is the school's safeguard against law-suits. The Dean of Students would never allow an unfair decision by her. If she does, the heat is on her. The school likes it that way and the students like it that way. The advisors to these boards should be faculty members or R.E.C.'s, it doesn't matter which. But the advisor surely should not be tne judicial affairs coordinator, who already has a major influence on the system. Let the hardworking student board members make their own judgements. The administration has the final say anyway. I encourage every faculty member who is approached by the S. G.A. to carefully consider spending 3-4 hours per week as an advisor to one of the boards. We need your help and "good judgement."

Sitting Pretty By Bruce Souza It is a well-known fact that the average person spends one-third of their life sleeping. What isn't known is that the average person also spends one-tenth to onetwelfth of their lives standing near or sitting on a toilet. The variation in the time above is subject to differences in diet and geography. Some residents of the island resort of San Clemente, California say that some residents there haven't used toilets in years. While a recent cross section survey of Longwood students has indicated a much higher than average use. It would seem, therefore that proper bathroom selection becomes an important matter. It's an issue we seem to ignore in, our daily treks across campus. We tend to prefer convenience over variety and entertainment in our most intimate relaxed moments. To simply list the best Johnnys would be dull. So, first, the criteria and crucial background information must be disseminated to prospective porcelain connoisseurs. To many of us the bathroom and library have become synonymous terms, especially in the private home. Unfortunately, the public lavatory provides us with the bound literature to peruse. This is not to say that public toilets don't foster own unique endeavors. For it is a well-known fact that without reading material in the stall mankind will begin to write on the wall. Personally, I don't view bathroom graffiti as vandalism, but more as a necessary cultural bulletin board. No one can deny that the stall wan is a place for personal expression. Where else can one disseminate a libelous attack on a person, organization, or race and know that you're absolutely safe from any possible recriminations. What would Freud have said about venting aggressions while sitting on the can? It would probably fit into the anal-expulsive model, no pun intended *

I had to question my journalistic integrity, and make valid judgments based on personal research. In mathematical terms my journalistic integrity can be described as the null set, but my research has been infallible. It took a week, and some hasty cross-campus walks in my quest for the best thrones at Longwood. Unfortunately, the inquiry focuses on men's toilets, and is sexist in approach. Thanks to A.R.A. most of us are so regular we can set our watches by the eating schedule. The grimaces on many people's faces as they leave the cafeteria suggest only one thing: immediate need of a latrine. Let me suggest a nearby convenience known as the President's bathroom. It is located in East Ruffner right by President Greenwood's office. This place is clean! Graffitti won't last 24 hours in this John. Nevertheless, one gets a warm feeling doing business there knowing you're

Arguably, the best pit stop on campus may be the Grainger 2nd floor men's room. I highly recommend this to anybody with sexual hangups or perverse habits in general. Here we have probably the highest ratio of graffiti to the square foot on campus, not to mention one of the narrowest stalls on campus. The wall is covered with everything from sexual innuendo to sexual misconception. I highly recommend coming to this can with a pen in hand.

"McDonnie's moves corporate headquarter to Curry" By Bruce Souza and Frank Raio The COWPIE, in a news exclusive has uncovered a major coup in corporate re-shuffling. To avoid being gobbled up by merger-hungry corporations McDonnie's has moved their corporate headquarters to the 9th floor of Curry residence hall. Chairman and Chief Executive of McDonnie's,Fred L. Tuner, said, "the current abusive takeover environment" is prompting our new low-profile-get close to the customer approach. "We at McDonnie's have always been innovators," Tuner said, citing the recent reinvention of putting lettuce and tomato on a hamburger. Housing Director, Ric Weibl, said, "We at the 'Wood have always been innovators," citing the efficiency and fairness of last year's room draw. After a short stint at the Farmville Motel and the pre-planned freshman

attrition rate, McDonnies was ready to move in early this week. McDonnie big-wigs feel that Longwood in Farmville is the perfect place for the Headquarters. "Farmville, gosh, just the name of the town exudes anonimity," Tuner said, "plus there are simply jillions of cows and cow-like animals around here â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Curry is dandy. You know there isn't even a phone on the 9th floor." In cahoots with A.R.A., McDonnie's and Longwood College have decided to offer a new fast food curriculum. The highlights of the program include: FF 102 - "Types of meat and reasonable faxsimiles," FFV 269 - "Meat Ethics, does four legs constitute a cow," FF 455 - "Upper Level I^aw Course â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Is meat a justiciable question; and has the Supreme Court ever defined "meat."

The Diary of George the Geek ByKimSetzer Monday: Dear Diary, Hi Diary! It's me, George. What a beautiful day. I just love Mondays. I just can't figure out why everyone else on campus hates Mondays. I love my classes, I love my teachers! Golly, I just think everything is so neatto here at Longwood. I love being a freshman. Well, Diary, I have a Zoology lab. I just love my Zoology lab. Well, I'm back from Zoology lab. Everything was great until my glasses fell in the sulfuric acid. Well, I did need a new pair. The band-aid wasn't holding up that well anyway. But I wonder if my tongue is going to be alright. Tuesday: Hey Diary! How's tricks (new phrase I just learned here at college). You know diary, there is something that I am totally confused about. Who is this D. T. Bradley? Everyone says if you want a good time, go to D. T. Bradley's. Saturday night, I went to Cox, the Cunninghams, Curry and Frazier and looked on all the doors. No D. T. Bradley. Then someone told me to look on Main Street. What dorm is on Main Street? Maybe he lives off of campus. Guess what? Diary, I am becoming very radical. I decided to have a party in my room Friday night. I am going to register it and everything. Neatto, huh? I thought I would invite a few close friends over for

a chess tournament and maybe a few crossword puzzles. How exciting! I'm going to ride my Huffy bike over to Safeway for Cheetos and Cokes. How radical! Wednesday: Hi Diary, School is great. Two foreign exchange students from Afghanistan are coming. Yeah, I know that they are my roommates. But just wait we are going to have a swell time anyway. I decided that I want to do an article for the Rotunda. I am going to do a story about the Alaskan Crab migration and mating during mid-December. That should be a juicy story. I know Frank will just love it. Maybe even a picture. Maybe even my picture. Well, the weekend is coming up really fast. I still only have two people coming to my party. That's okay. They will be flocking here when they hear about the chess tournament. You know, Diary, I knew the parking situation was bad, but they actually towed away my Huffy. Can you believe that? Friday: Well Diary, I decided to go to something called a mixer. The party sorta fell through. The Afghanistan had an emergency anti-nuclear meeting. I really don't quite know what a mixer is. But maybe if I like it, I can go to a blender next week. What do you think? Sincerely Yours, George

and Testament on parking

By Jeff Fleming This is the last article I'm writing on parking at Longwood College. In this last article I hope to inform you, humor you, and finally tell you where to go. To begin with, I was appointed to the Parking Appeals Committee. This committee consists of two people in the administration, two faculty members, two day students, and two dorm students. To date, the total amount of tickets on appeal for this semester are 61. We've had two meetings this semester. In addition to appeals we have discussed lot changes and problems with our map. The biggest change from last year is the Lankford parking lot has been given to dorm students. This has put many day students, that don't have early classes, in the dreaded Wynne lot. My only suggestion to the day students is to try to get to campus early. If you don't have an early class; wear your hiking boots. There is one mistake in the color coded parking map that was distributed. The map shows that spaces are available in Her lot for students. All spaces in Her lot are for the faculty. The police dept. also assures us that more signs are going up. In the first three weeks of school 1000 tickets were issued by the police officers. Of the 1000 given 148 were paid and 57 were voided.

Some People Are Dying To Know The Facts About Eating Disorders. The truth is, bulimia and anorexia nervosa are being diagnosed at an almost epidemic rate. An estimated 15 to 20 percent of all college women are bulimic, and approximately one out of every 100-250 young women suffer from anorexia. People with bulimia go on periodic eating binges, only to force up or "purge" their food later. Anorectics typically starve themselves to as little as 65 percent of their normal body weight—or even less. Eating disorders are illnesses, ones that can take over your life.

SPORTS FEATURE Frank Tennyson By Tim Fitzgerald

FARMVILLE, VA. Everyone should have at least one chance to live the life of Walter Mitty. This summer Franklin Delano Roosevelt Tennyson got his chance. Tennyson, a 5-8 point guard on Longwood's basketball team, spent much of his summer in a dream world. Tennyson worked as a counselor at various basketball camps and had the chance to rub elbows with such superstars as Ralph Sampson and Michael Jordan. With the help of Longwood basketball coach Cal Luther, Tennyson was originally scheduled to work one week at the James Madison Basketball camp. But, he did such an outstanding job at JMU that he was asked to work at Ralph Sampson's first camp the following week in Harrisonburg. At Madison, the counselors spent the entire day refereeing games. Tennyson did an exceptional job and was selected to officiate the championship game. Each night, after officiating as many as seven or eight games, the counselors held live scrimmages until 11:30 or 12:00. "It was intense, all out, hardnosed basketball," said Tennyson. It was Roger Bergey, Ralph Sampson's high school coach from Harrisonburg, who was impressed with Tennyson's work at the JMU camp and asked him to work the next week at Ralph's camp. While there, Tennyson roomed with former Highland Springs High teammate and UVA star

Ricky Stokes. "We stayed with Ralph, and we became friends. He's really a great guy. Every morning he would spend about a half hour giving the kids free shirts, shoes, sweats, basketballs and other items. He was always there for the kids. He never missed a session." Each counselor, most of whom were from Divison I schools, was assigned to coach a team, and Tennyson's team won the camp championship. "It was a really big event. We were on TV, and we got a lot of recognition. I was really happy for the kids," said Tennyson. As at Madison, night hours were reserved for live scrimmages by the counselors. "I improved a lot playing with those guys. When you play above your level you've got to improve or get out." After showing his playing and coaching abilities, Tennyson was

This week, the Lancer golfers host Chowan, Liberty University and Hampden-Sydney Thursday at Longwood Golf Course for a four-team match.

"I think if we can get everybody playing up to their capabilities at the same time, we'll be okay."

longwood's volleyball team had a shot at winning all three games Friday night, but came away a loser as homestanding Randolph-Macon Woman's College took a 15-7,15-10 and 15-11 victory in Lynchburg. The Lady Lancers trailed 7-0 before rallying in the first game, were ahead 10-4 in the second contest and cut a 14-1 deficit to 1411 before bowing in the third game.

in high demand. "I had the opportunity to work at a different camp everyday for the rest of the summer, but I couldn't do it because of my job at the Boys Club of Richmond." For Tennyson it was a summer of nothing but basketball. By the time he came back to Longwood, he had met such stars as Ralph Sampson, Michael Jordan, John Lucas, Alex English, Calvin Murphey, Othel Wilson, Johnny Dawkins, Ricky Stokes and many others. "Being around these people and playing with the people I played with has really helped my confidence offensively. I've always been consistent on defense, but now I am more confident in my ability to score." According to coach Cal Luther, "I wish every player could have these experiences to help his confidence the way they have obviously helped Frank's." Last season as a junior, Tennyson averaged 3.8 points per game while leading the Lancers in field goal percentage (.556) and finishing third in free throw percentage (.730). Longwood, however, experienced its first losing season in six years. After a summer of preparation, Longwood's Walter Mitty, Frank Tennyson, is ready for the challenges that lie ahead in the Mason-Dixon Conference. "I don't want to make a definite prediction, but I feel that we can win the conferences. I have confidence in our recruits and our returning players. I don't want to sound over-confident, but I think this can be our best year ever."
