Administration's View By FRANK RAIO It is important for the Longwood community to understand the other side of the Involvement Project story; the administrators taking part in the program feel that: 1) The survey was a success, 2) The Involvement Project is a valuable part of a Longwood education, 3) Proper procedure was observed when completion of the survey by sophomores was linked to pre-registration. Student Development Educators Kathe Taylor and Bill Moore, who along with Barb Gorski and Meredith Strom make up the Involvement Project Group, told the Rotunda that although disappointed and surprised by the sudden opposition, the Sophomore survey phase of the Involvement Project appears to be an overall success. The Involvement Project has been in the works for several years; directly related to the "Fourteen Goals," the project is

an innovation in higher education's never-ending effort to allow students to "get more out of their tuition dollar." In fact, Bill Moore had been away all last week at a conference where he made an Involvement Project presentation to "impressed" collegues who are similarly charged with the responsibility of getting students to "try to think about how their time is spent and get the most out of their investment." The Sophomore survey is only a small part of the Student Development Educators' effort to "make the fourteen goals more meaningful than just words," Taylor said. The survey is a series of questions which, in Taylor's words, "make a snapshot picture of the student's past year." Students filled out the questionnaire and turned them in to the Student Development office. The surveys were returned to the students in small group discussions scheduled throughout the past week. Within

these groups, administrators guide the third semester students through a review of the responses. This one-hour meeting provides "assessment and feedback" according to Moore, allowing students to take a look back at their freshmen year and perhaps encouraging them to get more out of their remaining years at Longwood. Taylor explains that sophomores were chosen as the target group because freshmen had demonstrated in a "pilot survey" last spring, that first-year students were "too academicoriented" to think about getting more out of college; making grades and getting acclaimated to college life was enough of a burden. The mere title, "Involvement Project," demonstrates the desirability of having participation mandatory; if students voluntarily took part in such programs, the Involvement Project itself would be unnecessary.

The Heat Source Of Longwood College By JOHNNY C. PASTINO The IiOngwood Boiler Room is located beneath the large 140 foot smoke-stack. In 1971, two of the four coal-fired boilers were converted to burn fuel oil. The other two boilers were put on standby for emergency use only. Some time later the idea of using wood chips was introduced. The use of wood chips involved some modifications to the two coalfired boilers. This change from

oil to wood chips has reduced fuel cost dramatically, consequently contributing to the overall Commonwealth's economy. The location of Longwood College is in the heartland of Virginia where there is an abundance of forest products. Therefore, it was, and is, logical to make use of the wood chips and sawdust for our source of fuel. Currently, wood chips and sawdust are furnished at a cost of

$15.50-ton from a main supplier to about $21.00-ton from incidental suppliers. The wood chips and sawdust is obtained from several (up to 6) suppliers because no single supplier has the source and-or transportation facilities to meet our requirements during the winter season. The fuel utilization varies from about 300 tons in May to over 1,500 tons in December. The amount of savings during (Continued on Page 5)

Letters To The Editor Involvement Project Dear Editor: I am writing this letter as a response to the non-response letter of Bill Moore and in support of John C. Colangelo who seems to be just as serious as I am about our communist-minded administrators. I, too, received one of those asinine involvement surveys from my R.A. After questioning my R.A. its purpose, I was just as clueless as before. Her only advice to me was to complete it. Briefly examining the survey of 140 questions, I felt it to be a waste of my time, and therefore decided to work on some homework instead. Apparently in the eyes of the student development educators, my priorities are out of place because I chose academics over outside activities. Anyway, I trashed the survey, not giving it a second thought until I found another one shoved under my door with a note attached: "Preregistration for spring classes will be cancelled if this survey is not completed." Well, I immediately took action. On the bottom of the survey were the names of the dictators Gorski, Moore, Strohm, and Taylor. I phoned Gorski and Taylor, both of whom were too busy to give

any of their precious time to adhere to the concerns of a measley student like myself. However, Bill Moore was available for discussion. I spoke with Mr. Moore over the telephone for approximately 35 minutes. I informed him that I was in favor of the survey for those who would benefit from it. However, I considered myself to be quite involved with the opportunities offered to Longwood College students, and therefore making this program irrevelant in my eyes. I am an active member of the Judicial Board, secretary of Phi Beta Lambda, and a work-study student, working 15 hours weekly. I have an adopted grandmother at a nearby nursing home. I also maintain a 3. g.p.a., currently tackling an IB-credit hour load. If that isn't involved, you tell me what is! Bill Moore responded that in place of participating in the survey that I could be given a special project to help other students become aware of the activities as I have. Can you believe this? "Oh sure, I just have so much spare time that I would love to do a special project to help fellow students."

BULLSHIT!! Mr. Moore also took my phone number and said he would get in touch with me concerning this matter within three working days. It has now been three weeks later. I have not heard a word from him. He stated in his letter to complain to him and not to Ms. Gorski. He must have been joking. Don't even try to discuss the situation with him, it will do you no good. Maybe the student development educators feel that it is their responsibility to make students get involved in college activities. However, as a college student and an adult, I feel that it is a person's own free will to do so, and preventing registration as a threat is totally ridiculous. If students want to become involved, they will. Forcing them is not the way. I am sure this letter will have no effect on the manner in which those dictators overlook the concern of the students. The general opinion I hear from fellow students including myself towards these people is to stay the hell out of our lives! We don't want their concern or their stupid survey! As of now, I have no intentions of completing the survey. If I should decide to change my mind (I doubt that seriously) and complete the survey and attend a seminar, I will be doing so against my own free will!?! Do the students of Longwood College have any student rights? Judi Goodridge

Longwood College continuously astounds me with their new and exciting methods to screw over the students. I would like to submit another way of how to be screwed by the administration. When I received my Involvement Survey I was told the same thing as was Mr. Colangelo: Fill it out or you cannot register for classes. I felt that this requirement of personal information was none of their business; however, I went ahead and filled out the survey. Let it also be known that I did not pay much attention to what I was marking and therefore filled out the entire survey in less than five minutes. When signing up for an appointment with my adviser I was informed that I would have to locate a Mr. Moore before advising to get some special registration form. So, I went to Mr. Moore's office and asked for my form. It was only then that I learned of some special meeting that I had not attended which I would have to < attend, in order to get my form. The reason I did not attend the meeting is simple; between the time of the survey and the time of the meeting I moved. My old R.A. did not contact me and my new R.A., whom I've never met, was not aware of the situation. Therefore, I had to cancel most of my nightime plans to attend the meeting. Had I not gone immediately to Mr. Moore's office to find out that I had to attend the meeting I would have been really screwed when it came time to be advised.

I attended the meeting and found it to be pretty much as I expected. The scores on the survey told our group that we were not highly involved in Longwood activities. Near the end of the session we were handed more survey sheets so we could sign up to get information on some of Longwood's activities. To appease the instructors, I marked a couple of things but it did no good. I still don't have enough time to be involved with an activity and to do Professor Fawcett's physics problems. Although the survey and meeting were of no use to me, I feel that the survey does have potential. I feel that the survey would be better used for the freshman class in the middle of their first semester. I also feel that the survey should not be a case of do it or get screwed but rather a "HI, I'M your friendly R.A. This is a survey to increase student unvolvement and I'd like you to fill it out and return it." Sure, some of the students will throw it away but they would rather party than participate in an activity anyway. The people who are interested and don't believe that the survey is generally worthless will return it. As a freshman, I wanted to get involved but didn't know how or where. I would still like to get involved but a heavy course load kept me from attempting anything. Maybe if I find an easy semester or two I'll help out but until then I'll be doing physics!

Letters To The Editor Shower Blues To the Editor, Have you ever woke up in the morning and found yourself thinking about standing underneath a hot shower to wake you up, but then realize that you won't be able to because the shower head only reaches your chest? If you live in either Curry or Frazer dormitory your answer to this question is probably yes. It upsets me to think that the architect who designed the high rises had no sense of proportion. Whoever put the plumbing in these buildings must have been five feet tall. That's fine for the short people, but it presents a problem for all of us who are closer to six feet tall. It's not too comfortable to squat while taking a shower. I expect a hot shower to do two things for me: wake me up in the morning; and get the creaks out of my back from sleeping in a bed too short for me. Of course, getting clean is a top priority too. Instead of easing the pain, I end up increasing it because of the To the Editor, I,et me be the first to formally thank Virginia Armiger Grant, Graduate Ass't for mentioning the longwood Players.

THE DIRT FACTS HERE: To The Editor, Please note that there are some students who care for the landscaping of Longwood College. On Saturday the 10th from 1-3 p.m., the Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity and Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity worked together to clean and relandscape the back of Frazer and Curry. Thanks to the Physical Plant, 4 truck loads of mulch were provided to help the bushes before winter sets in. Other projects that have been done include; hallo ween trick-or-treating for MDA and putting down gravel by Lancer-tennis courts. The fraternities are working together with the college to help show that not all students are apathetic and to motivate those who are. A party to raise money for the cut tree and the December Bloodmobile are still on their lists of projects. To any students who are interested in helping and are tired of apathy or have any ideas for other projects, please contact Kathy Schieb, Box 1154, or Tim Grahman, Box 430.

Dorm Prowler

Senseless Vandalism By KIM DEANER Frazer dorm, as well as Ix)ngwood campus as a whole, has had an excessive amount of vandalism taking place this school year. This senseless vandalism has been brought to the attention of the administration and is not going to be tolerated especially concerning the problem of students throwing items from the windows. In the Spring of 1965, $2,413 was spent on Frazer for replacement, repair, and cleaning. Much of this total was for replacement of such things as exit sign plate (5.00), ceiling tile ($3.00), elevator buttons and cover ($150.00), window screen ($15.00), window ($40.00), and inside stairwell door ($275.00). This year in Frazer there has been such incidents as a toilet removed and demolished (not to be confused with the famous

Spruce and Redford toilet; this toilet has an identity of its own), a fire alarm disassembled ($251.50), a bed thrown from a window ($145.00), a window shot with a beebee gun, stair-case railing broken, spray paint damage, fire extinguisher sprayed, exit sign stolen, phone disassembled, and furniture stolen from the lobby. The problem of things being thrown from the roof and windows of Frazer is more serious to the degree that someone may be severely hurt. To prevent items from being thrown, the roof door was locked. Someone gained access to the roof by breaking the roof window and then threw a pumpkin on a car and caused $1,000 damage. The pumpkin dented the roof and broke the windshield. If students continue to throw things from the windows a

solution may be that all screens will be pinned shut. The administration is dealing with the excessive trash in the halls after parties; two Fraternities have had restrictions placed on their chapter room parties because of trash problems on Oktoberfest weekend. The Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity can have only two parties until Thanksgiving and the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity can have no parties because they also broke a fire code by having too many people in their chapter room. The problem of false fire alarms is being delt with by applying more strict sanctions. The administration is now recommending suspension of any student caught pulling a false alarm; first offense with no prior disiplinary record. In Frazer (Continued on Page 8)

N.Y.C. Weekend The jazz, folk and rock class went on a field trip this past weekend to New York City. The members of the class who chose to go had a great time. Some students that went with the class before, went again for the second or third time. Couples from Farmville participated in the field trip also, they usually go every year. The trip was reasonably priced that included a bus ride there and back and staying in South Gate Hotel for two nights. The students went to see the famous New York City Broadway plays. Some of the musicals they

went to see were: "The Odd Couple," "Forty-second Street," "Singing in the Rain." "Oh, Calcutta" and "La Cage Aux Folles." Viewing the plays in New York was great compared to seeing them on television or listening to them on tapes. The students liked being on their own once they got there so they could see all the other attractions of New York City. Some of the things they did were: — shopping at Bloomingdale's, Macy's Ix>rd-n-Taylors, and Sax Fifth Avenue — viewing New York City from the Empire State Building — visiting the World Trade Center

— eating in New York's famous restaurants like Mamma Ironies — visiting China Town — going through Time Square and Central Park — traveling around New York City by horse and buggy, by subway, by taxi — bargaining with the vendors on the street The night was as much fun as the day with the night life of New York. The students bars like the Hard Rock Cafe, or to see the Chippendales, or to Broadway musicals. The opportunity to go to New York was a great experience for the students. Some say they can't wait to go next year.

with M&M's and potato chips. To find out how students rank in their eating habits the Student Member Section of Virginia Home Economics is conducting a campus food habit survey. The questionnaire survey will be given randomly selected classes. There will be questions pertaining to how often a student snacks and what snacks are most often eaten. Also there will be questions on the type of meals students eat and how many meals are eaten per day. The survey serves as a way to find which foods the student eats has which of the eight leading nutrients and the caloric content. Results will be collected November 19. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

How would you feel if you were lying in bed half asleep when someone enters into your room and cuts off a small light across the room and walks toward you in your bed. This happened Saturday morning around 6:30 to a girl who lives in French dormitory. She scared him when she yelled to him "get out of here," so he ran out of the room. The rumor around campus was that this man had been caught. The man has obviously not been caught so everyone needs to be aware of this so they can take the proper safety precautions.

Admonition and Educational Assignment — 1 Upon reading the summary printed last time in the Rotunda, several people questioned why individuals were found not responsible or no action was taken, particularly when the violations appeared to be so severe. It is important to remember that the hearing body has the responsibility to prove that the accused is responsible. Therefore, if enough information is not available it may be that the Board or Hearing Officer determined to take no further action in the case. It may also be clear, based upon the information presented, that the accused is not responsible. It is also important to remember that each case must be determined individually. A particular sanction may be imposed because the individual has already received in a previous hearing the lesser sanction typically utilized for that violation. It is also the responsibility of the hearing body to determine which sanction is necessary to ensure that this behavior will not occur again, therefore, a sanction may be imposed which others might believe to be severe. Much information cannot be shared with anyone except the accused and the hearing body. All of us are protected by the Freedom of Information Act which states that such information does remain private. Therefore, readers are encouraged to utilize the above information to better understand the general standards of conduct but to refrain from establishing specific judgements based upon this information. A Student Advocate's Group is forming. This group would be trained in the disciplinary system and would be available to assist students who are going before the Boards or a Hearing Officer. These trained students would not be able to act on behalf of the accused, but would be able to support the accused during the hearing. If you are interested, please contact Barbara Gorski, Director of Student Services. Her office is on first floor Tabb. Note that any cases which are currently in appeal are not represented in the statistics above.

A SURVEY ON RAPE at the U. of Northern Iowa found that 36 percent of women students say they've been forced to have sexual intercourse, and 20 precent say they were victimized at least six times. A NEW ABUSE OF DRUGS by teens and young adults involves intravenous injections of the drugs in nasal inhalants as a substitute for amphetamines, according to medical authorities. Accurate figures on the number of abusers are not available, but authorities warn the abuse is spreading. HOME FOOTBALL GAMES at the U. of Kansas bring about $500,000 in business, per game, to local merchants, according to the Lawrence, Kan., chamber of commerce.

BODY PASSING is considered fourth-degree sexual assault by campus police at the U. of Wisconsin-Madison. Female students are frequently lifted and passed overhead to the top of the stadium. UW police have been combating the problem for five years, but have had little luck in stopping it. A NEW DATING SERVICE, catering to Midwestern colleges, says it expected mostly freshmen, but the bulk of their business has been from seniors and graduate students. The service will give students names of potential dates chosen according to the students' answers on a 34-question survey. The questions range from smoking, to abortion, to the meaning of love and life.

BREAD NOT BOMBS is a slogan taken seriously by students at Brown U. The students are organizing a bake sale to raise money for a physics professor, so he would not have to accept funding from the Reagan administration's Star Wars program. CITIZENSHIP SKILLS are not being taught by American schools, according to Ralph Nader. Nader has been speaking on campuses around the country, charging that "students are taught how to believe and not how to think. The learning process today is memorization, regurgitation and vegetation." SEXUAL HARASSMENT IS COMMONPLACE in higher education, according to a study by the Indiana U. Office of Women's Affairs. The study found that, every year, about 25 percent of the women enrolled in college are sexually harassed. DRUG TESTING isn't just for athletes anymore. Arizona State U. is testing athletes and cheerleaders for drug abuse this fall. TRIVIA IS OUT: SCRUPIJS ARE IN. According to merchants serving the U. of Nebraska area, sales of the game Trivial Pursuit have fallen and some stores are reducing prices to "get rid of them." The most recent fad is Scruples, a game in which players answer questions about morality and personal opinions. FIRST THERE WAS GATORADE, invented by a U. of Florida professor, not there's Alligator Beer. Two UF seniors have invented their own beer, company and marketing plan. "We just walked into Florida Brewery, presented the idea and sold ourselves — they just loved us." MAINTAINING A "C" AVERAGE may be required of students receiving federal financial aid in the future. Because Congress is searching for ways to cut the federal budget, and there has been much said recently about poor students getting financial aid, the proposed change is expected to pass. JUDGE SAYS U. VIRGINIA NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR FRATERNITY ACCIDENT. A state court ruled last week Sigma Chi officers were not acting as university agents when they planned a fraternity outing that ended when a truck filled with students and two kegs of beer overturned in 1982, killing two and permanently disabling Thomas Stumm, who now is suing for damages. In August, another court held the U. of Denver liable for a fraternity accident in which a student was injured. ALL-NIGHTERS ARE BAD FOR CRAMMING, according to a Cornell medical school professor. He says the best memorizing times are 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

"This is not a research project ... the point of the survey is to get students to assess their use of time. There is no attempt to look at individual results." In response to questions about why students had to sign their names to the survey, Moore explains that it was a matter of mechanics. "How could we achieve assessment and feedback if names weren't on them? They had to get the survey back (in the group discussions) Moore added, "No one was forced to answer the individual items." Considering the events of the past week, the future of the actual survey is uncertain. The Fourteen Goals and the Involvement Project will remain a priority in that Longwood and all higher education institutions are committed to helping students get the most out of their college experience.

Women's Basketball Longwood women's basketball coach Shirley Duncan is faced with the unenviable task of trying to maintain a winning tradition without three players who scored nearly 3,000 points and grabbed over 2,000 rebounds over the past four seasons. Florence Holmes, Valerie Turner and Marianna Johnson, Longwood's MVP's over the past three campaigns, have graduated. "It will take more than one year or one season to replace what we lost last year." said the coach. "We may be- struggling some this year. We are very young and our schedule is extremely tough." Longwood, which opens its season at American University November 22, will get a chance for a preseason tune-up Sunday at 3:00 when the Lady Lancers host the Blue Angels Athletic Club, a women's basketball team made up of former college cagers. The AAU sanctioned team is based in Richmond. Former Longwood standout Cindy Eckel is a member of the Blue Angels. Eckel scored 1,029

points for the Lady Lancers from 1979 through 1983. She ranks fourth on the all-time scoring list. Duncan has led Longwood to seasons of 16-10 and 16-13 in two years. Despite the losses from last season's squad, some talented players are on hand. A trio of junior starters are back. Guard Caren Forbes scored 14.2 ppg. and dished off a school record 140 assists. Inside performers Melanie Lee, 5-11, and Karen Boska, 6-1, combined for over 17 points and 13 rebounds per game in 1984-85. Duncan is counting on the threesome to provide leadership as well as points, rebounds and assists. Also returning from last season is senior Beth Ralph, who joined the Lady Lancers at midseason and started several games. A 5-10 forward, she averaged 6.4 ppg. Reserves back for another season are sophomore guards Annette Easterling and Angie Hill. Second-year center Barbie Burton, 6-2, is academically ineligible first semester, but hopes to reioin the team in


In a strong showing by the Longwood wrestling team, sophomores David Taylor and John Stukes took second place in their respective weight classes Saturday as the Lancers competed in the Campbell University Wrestling Tournament in Buies Creek, North Carolina. Stukes, who won the 134-pound division at the James Madison Takedown Tournament November 3, got a first round bye and won two matches to reach the finals. In the semi-finals he beat an Ail-American from Livingstone College. He lost a decision to claim second place. Taylor went 3-1 in the 190 class and had a "super tournament",

according to coach Steve Nelson. Nelson had special praise for sophomore Pete Whitman who went 4-1 to take third at 142. "Pete had an exceptionally good tournament," said Nelson. "He wrestled really well. He was probably our top performer." Also finishing third for Longwood was heavyweight Jesus Strauss who went 2-1. Terry Hyams was fourth at 190 with a 2-2 mark and Tim Fitzgerald, wrestling unattached, was third at 118 with a 3-1 mark. Longwood's next action is November 19 (next Tuesday) when Division I William & Mary pays a visit to Lancer Hall for a 7:00 bout.

January. Four promising freshmen are also in the fold. Center Sandy Rawdon, 6-1, forward India Walton, 5-9^, forward Kita Chambers, 5-9Vfe, and guard Angee Middleton, 5-6, comprise one of Longwood's strongest

recruiting classes ever. Duncan warns, however, that the freshmen will have to grow up in a hurry with only 10 players on the squad first semester. "We're hoping they will all be able to make a contribution early," said the coach.

Longwood's women's volleyball team ended its season on a losing note last Tuesday, falling to Chowan and Mary Washington in Murfreesboro, North Carolina. Chowan beat the Lady lancers 15-6, 15-10 while the Blue Tide handed Longwood a 15-13, 15-8 defeat. "All the seniors played and they played really well," said coach Linda Elliott. "Julie Mobley came off the bench and did a great job. She had several kills." Elliott expressed pride in her team's accomplishments, despite a record of 4-28. "I'm proud of the whole team," she said. "They're leaving the season as better volleyball players. They learned a new system and improved their skills. Unfortunately, the win-loss record won't show it. Opposing coaches gave us credit for being a scrappy bunch. I just wish I had this year's seniors back for another season."

Lancer Sports Men's Basketball Preparing For Par-Bil's Tournament

1985-8* LONGWOOD MEN'S BASKETBALL OUTIXX)K Coach Cal Luther enters his fifth basketball season at Longwood and 25th overall seeking to reverse a rare losing mark from a year ago when the lancers ended up 11-17. The 1984-85 campaign was a "season of close games." The lancers played six overtime games and had 13 games decided in overtime or by two points or less. A strong, aggressive defense (LC gave up just 61 6 ppg.) kept the Lancers in the game with everyone on the schedule. Longwood, however, struggled offensively, particularly after the loss of top scorer and rebounder Kenneth

Fields at mid-year because of academic difficulties. "It was a very frustrating season," said Luther. "Despite the tough breaks, I've never had a team work harder than last year's squad. Here at Longwood we have been blessed with good athletes who are also very good people. The five seniors on this year's squad are good examples of this. They are dedicated to making this their best season. Although we are playing the toughest schedule any longwood baseball team has ever played, , m optimistic we can have a winning year. Seniors Fields and Lonnie Lewis, and junior Kevin Ricks are perhaps the top three returning players. Lewis, a 6-3 forward, scored 11.1 ppg. end was

a starter during the second half of the season a year ago. With 937 career points, Lewis is destined to become the fifth player in Longwood history to top the 1,000 point mark. Fields, a 6-2 leaper, averaged 13.3 points through the Lancers' first 12 games a year ago. An explosive scorer inside, Fields also averaged 4.3 rebounds and hit 59.8 percent from the floor. Ricks was the Lancers' top defender last season with 78 steals and 13 blocked shots. He also scored 7.8 points per game 1 and handed out 85 assists. Ricks' status is questionable, however, because of a treseason hand injury. Part-time starters back for another year are seniors Dave Edwards (6-6), Lionell Ogburn (6-3), Frank Tennyson (5-8) and junior Eric Pittman (6-2). Sophomore reserve Mike Leake provides size at 6-5. Longwood's men's basketball team, looking to make amends for last season's 11-17 record, opens its season Friday, November 22 in the first round of the Par-Bil's Tip-Off Tournament in Lancer Hall. The tournament, sponsored for the third year by Par-Bil's Food Store, will match Longwood against Virginia Wesleyan in the lidlifter at 7:00 on the 22nd.

Their opponents were the George Mason Men's Rugby Club from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. George Mason scored first to take a 4-0 lead. Longwood fought back to take a 6-4 lead on a try by Brian Liming and a point after by George Miller. George Mason came back with a penalty kick late in the first half to take a U lead into halftime. Longwood played a tough second half.


However, they were unable to score while George Mason scored twice in the waning minutes of the match to seal a 16-6 victory.
