Longwood Student Charged In Accident By THE ROTUNDA STAFF Five cars belonging to Longwood students parked along
Griffith Blvd. were struck in a chain reaction causing approximately $15,300 worth of dam-
age. The accident which is believed to be alcohol related occurred at 12:40 a.m., November 8. According to the investigating officer of the Farmville Police Department, Tom Griles, a 1976 4-door Cadillac struck the rear end of a 1987 Chrysler Plymouth. This Plymouth was pushed into a 1969 Buick, which in turn was pushed into a 1981 Chevy, ending with the Chevy bumper to bumper with a Camero. The driver of the black Cadillac, a Longwood student, identified to the Rotunda as Cadillac driven by student behind Cox and Wheeler the D.M., was charged with driving night of Nov. 8. An estimated $15,300 damage was done to under the influence and refused there cars parked along the road. to take the breathilizer or
SMOKEOUT ÂŤS5 THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19,1987 By REBECCA NEHER Some Longwood students will be volunteering to take a test on Thursday, November 19. This "test" won't establish their knowledge of American history, English literature or basic accounting. It will test their ability to do without cigarettes for one 24-hour period. The Longwood College students will be among the millions of American smokers participating in the American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout. The Society sponsors the Great American Smokeout each year on the third Thursday in November to encourage smokers to test their willpower for just one day. Last year, almost 24 million smokers quit or
cut down for the day. "We know students aren't too crazy about anything even remotely resembling a test," said Belinda Seimer, campus Smokeout coordinator: "That's why we're planning some fun activities, to get everybody into the spirit of the thing." "Among the activities planned are a cigarette collecting-table and a smokes/balloon lift off," comments Belinda Seimer. "The best news is, this is a te3t nobody can fail. Making any attempt to quit makes you a Smokeout winner; Anybody who tries, gets an 'A'! The collecting table will be set up in front of Black well Dining Hall and will be accepting 'tobacco products' on Thursday, November 19, from 8:00 until 2:00 p.m. The people who participate will have their
name attached to a balloon. The balloon release will take place at 5:00 behind Curry and Frazer. Belinda Seimer, the coordinator, is an employee of Student Health Services. The student Chairperson is Candy Glenn. She and a Freshman seminar class have been organizing the activities and publicizing this Annual American Smokeout. Belinda Seimer added that the smokeout is intended for everyone - students, faculty, smokers, nonsmokers and even "smokeless" tobacco users. "We hope everyone will participate," she said. "If you're not a smoker or you've already quit, you can "adopt" a friend and help them get through the day," Belinda said. Campus Smokeout planners are especially interested in encouraging "smokeless" tobacco users to join their moratorium. "Unfortunately, lots of young people consider snuff and chewing tobacco safe alternatives to cigarettes ... and that's just not the case," she said. "No matter what your tobacco habit is, the Great American Smokeout is your day to pass it up."

Buckingham Site Challenges Archeology Students A low, rectangle-shaped stone wall in a woods in Buckingham County has intrigued and baffled Longwood College anthropology students for more than two years. The enclosure, located a half-mile off Route 636 a few miles west of New Store, is roughly the size of two football fields. The walls, made up mostly of stones, are about two feet wide and range in height from about 18 inches to three feet. One of the end walls is mostly dirt. Inside and outside the walls, there are mounds of stones varying in size. Like the famous Stonehenge site in England, the walls and (Continued on Page 3)

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, It has come to the attention of our class that some freshmen are not satisfied with the current Longwood Seminar curriculum. Through a comprehensive survey of freshmen, we have prepared to discuss the problems and possible solutions as seen by a majority of students surveyed. Consequently, we have attempted to provide suggestions for improving the Seminar. This study was done through and opinion poll involving seventy-four Freshman Seminar students. Each student was asked five questions concerning the importance of and their interest in Freshman Seminar. The results were discussed and tallied to reflect the general attitude of the students. The results of the survey are charted below. Longwood Seminar Survey Q - Is Longwood Seminar helpful? A-31, yes; 43, no. Q - How many credits should Seminar be worth? Aavg., 2 credits. Q - How many times a week should the class meet? A - Once or twice for 1/2 a semester. Q - Should Longwood Seminar be pass/fail? A - 36, yes; 38, no. Q - What suggestions or comments would you make concerning the text and topics discussed in Seminar? A - The Medusa and the Snail should not be discussed. More time should be spent discussing campus activities. Longwood Seminar is helpful in registering for classes. The results show that the majority of those freshmen interviewed disliked having the seminar mainly due to the fact that they felt it was a waste of time. Of all those questioned, the average student felt the class should be worth two credits, while meeting only once or twice a week during the first half of the semester. It was also suggested that the seminar

leaders be made available for counseling during the remainder of the semester. Thirtyeight of the seventy-four students participating disagreed with the pass/fail system of grading. They felt that if the seminar was worth their credit hours, it should count toward their GPA. Students who felt the class was useful believed that the curriculum should concentrate on campus activities and not on social aspects of college life. Concerning textbooks, most students felt The Medusa and the Snail was useless reading. This survey, taken by Dr. Overton's Seminar class, was based on what students thought of the course curriculum and usefulness of the class. From the results of the survey many Freshman Seminar students feel that the seminar could be helpful if some aspects were changed. Suggestions include making the amount of time required by the class more compatible with the number of credit hours and the system of grading, and making minor adjustments in the topics discussed.

The Honor System Wins The Honor System, at this point in time, could conceivably be considered one of the most controversial issues on campus. As often is the case (the Honor System no different) any issue which generates such discussion also generates its fair share of criticism. Some of these critics are knowledgable, rational, and articulate in their comments, while some simply wonder off into tangents which don't even merit the energy required for response. Of those critics deserving response, the reasons behind their questions about the effectiveness of the Honor System vary. The one argument to surface most often is the lack of support on the student's behalf. The Honor Board realized that the impression that the student body was not in support of a system which was designed and operated for their benefit was indeed a stigma. The Honor Board also felt such a stigma need not exist because it was in their eyes not at all the case. For that reason the Board decided to take opportunity allowed by Honor Awareness Week to pose question "Honor, Why Bother? to the students. After asking the students to make such a weighty decision the Board offered the students a chance to become aware of the issues which should be involved in formulating their opinions. A poll was conducted on Friday, Nov. 13th in an eighthour time period, 50% of the on-campus Longwood students were polled as to their position on The Honor System: do you support it at the present time, or not? Of the students who chose to participate, 98% claimed to support the functioning Honor System; 2% did not. Let the numbers speak for themselves.

Education Major In For A Change By CINDY GOOD Education majors, or prospective education majors, will in the near future have more practical experience in the classroom as freshmen, sophomores, and juniors so they can decide early in their college careers if teaching is really what they want to do. Starting next semester, the practical experience for teacher education majors will take the form of two practicums. A practicum is a three-credit course in which the student spends six hours a week for ten weeks in an elementary school classroom. These Longwood students will be actively involved with the school children and serve as a teacher aide. Education majors will be required to do one practicum in their freshman year and one in their sophomore or junior year. Dr. Gibbons said that since most of the education majors here get certified to teach K-4, they will do one of their practicums here at the nursery school on campus. The other practicum will be done in one of the eight area school systems which have agreed to work with Longwood students in the endeavor. These school systems are: Prince Edward, Cumberland, Nottoway, Amelia, Buckingham, Appomattox, Charlotte, and Lunenburg. The student doing the practicum will be assigned to a teacher BUCKINGHAM SITE (Continued from Page 1) mounds have been an enigma to student archeologists from Longwood. "I believe the enclosure was not a physical enclosure but more of a symbolic one. Perhaps it was used for supernatural belief purposes," said Dennis Fenton, the leader of a four-member research team that is doing independent study there this fall. Keith Russell, a since-graduated Longwood student who first studied the site, also thinks it was used for ritual or religious purposes. "Keith and I think the site was used at different times by different groups," said Tom Richard, a graduate student and assistant director of housing. "Where we disagree is that he thinks the real focus was in prehistoric times, and I think it was in Colonial times. But that's just my 'gut' feeling. We don't have enough evidence to say what it is." Persons connected with Longwood's anthropology program learned of the location in the summer of 1985 from the landowner, K. M. Beasley Jr., who lives nearby on the other side of 636. Russell, now a graduate student at the University of Utah, and Richard began doing survey work and some excavation at the site in early 1986. Richard continued the work that summer, as part of the Summer Field School in Archeology, and last fall, as an independent study project. Fenton, who is now the site supervisor, started going there last fall as a volunteer. The site was registered with the Virginia Research Center for Archaeology as Site 44BK213 in the spring of 1986. The thickly wooded site, which is bisected by an old logging road, is only about three miles from the field school's location, which is on the Appomattox River near Holliday Lake State Park. The long walls of the enclosure are 564 and 619 feet long. The

Along one of the end walls, known as the eastern wall, the students have found evidence of as many as 19 graves. "Eight or nine are marked with foor- and headstones," said Fenton. With the others, you can see depressions in the ground." "There's a lot of periwinkle there, which usually indicates Christian burials," Justin Patton, another member of the group,
who will act as a mentor, not just a supervisor, for the Longwood student helping in the teacher's classroom. The idea of the mentor program originated last spring. Longwood education faculty members Dr. Nancy Vick and Mrs. Betty Jo Simmons contacted the superintendents of the area school systems and asked the superintendents to recommend seven teachers who they thought would be good mentors for Longwood's education majors. The recommended mentor teachers had to meet several requirements before they would be accepted to do the job: they should have at least three years' teaching experience, be endorsed to teach what they are presently teaching, they should have a masters degree, and must have the desire to work with the college students. Dr. Gibbons said that if additional sources of funding become available, there will be a mentor workshop every summer to get more area teachers involved in the program. Through this new Teacher Education program, it is hoped that education majors will no longer decide during or after student teaching (after it is too late to change their major) that teaching really is not what they wanted to do afterall. said. "It's fast-growing and covers up the graves quickly." Because Robert E. Lee used Route 636 on his retreat to Appomattox, Richard thinks Confederate soldiers may have been buried in those graves after the surrender. Fenton disputes this, saying that soldiers usually were buried in mass graves rather than singly. The stones that make up the walls and are scattered around the site are roughly the size of bricks. Inside the enclosure, there are seven mounds of stone; outside there are more than two dozen. They range from about three to 10 feet in diameter and from one to three feet in height. "You kind of stumble upon them," Fenton said. "I'm sure there's many more that we haven't seen. The mound farthest from the wall is at least 300 feet away. Such sites are known as "stone mound" sites and are common in the southeastern United States. There are several stone mound sites in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee, and one at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia, the students said. Richard and Russell attended the Southeastern Archaeological Conference in Birmingham, Ala., in November 1985 and heard these sites discussed in a special session. "No one has an answer to the stone mound problem," said Richard. Fenton said he is certain of three things about the site. "The walls and mounds are prehistoric. The graves along the eastern wall are from historic times, as opposed to prehistoric. And beyond the northern wall, there's a long trench that's been dug out and an earthen wall next to it. An older man who lives in the area said that's where people once searched for gold." Added Richard, "Before the 1849 Gold Rush, Buckingham County was one of the biggest places to find gold." Fenton also thinks the enclosure may have "served as a marker for people who moved in and out of the area. The site is almost due west of Willis Mountain and the walls follow the cardinal directions almost exactly." The students have been disappointed by a lack of artifacts, which is characteristic of stone mound sites. Fenton found a piece of forged metal that's of recent vintage, and Patton found a pottery fragment that's also from historic times. They have found no prehistoric artifacts. "Some people are fortunate enough to work in the tombs of Egypt, und then there's us," said Fenton with a laugh. "But it's our site and we love it," Richard added. "You have to be philosophical about this," Fenton said. "Some people spend their whole lives going over a piece of ground and never find anything. But at least they can say that a certain people didn't live there. Negative evidence isn't the same as no evidence. This isn't as frustrating as you would think." The students are grateful to Beasley, a real estate agent, for his cooperation. "Mr. Beasley has been very helpful and enthusiastic," said Fenton. "We have a conditional use permit and can go out there any time we like. We can also camp there, which we have done several times." Two other Longwood students, Mike Plum and Eric Sanders, also have been going to the site this semester as an independent study project. The students' enthusiasm is undampened. "I'll be going to Longwood for another year and a half, and I plan to keep going out there until I graduate," vowed Fenton.
Davis Selected As Artist Of The Month Mark Davis, a senior from Dale City, has been chosen Artist of the Month. Davis received the honor for a black and white photograph of his girlfriend, Michelle Hummer, who's also a Longwood student. He took the 35millimeter photo from behind her as she put on make-up in front of a mirror. He received a $50 check for winning the award, which is sponsored by the art faculty. Davis is majoring in art. After graduating next May, he plans to be a graphic designer or professional musician.
ACCIDENT (Continued from Page 1) "He tried resisting arrest yelling: 'My grandpa is a lawyer.' "He was finally handcuffed to the passenger seat of the police car. All injured vehicles were checked by police and most damaged ones were quickly towed away." The case goes to court on December third in the Prince Edward courthouse at 9 a.m. The accident comes one week after Longwood's Alcohol Awareness Week. The program emphasizes that only a personal commitment to making responsible decisions regarding alcohol will make an impact on the problems associated with its use and misuse. Some speculated that "incidents like this one would increase just as the drinking laws did."

Iran/Contra Findings, Iraqi Attack, And Kennedy By Matt Peterman â–Ą Yesterday, the findings of the Iran/Contra affair were officially released to the public, however, because the report is released after this printing, the following will give the reader a good idea of what will be found in the report The two main points it will cover is the decision to sell arms to Iran and the diversion of funds to the Contras. The one thing it will say is there is no evidence that President Reagan approved of the diversion of funds. It will say: If the president didn't know, he should have. There was a lack of presidential oversight and will raise tough questions about Poindexter and North's testimony, citing laws that may have been broken. It will also be critical of the short span of media and public attention of important constitutional questions. The report is a book of 600 plus pages that many republicans will call clearly partisan and antiadministration.
D Iran was reporting Tuesday that Iraq carried out an attack against its nuclear reactor saying it could result in 'another Chernobyl.' The report could not be independently confirmed. Iraq says it raided two chemical plants about 35 miles away from what U.S. officials are calling a Quasi nuclear plant. As for the "Chernobyl' effect, experts believe that could not happen. Among the many people killed in the raid was a West German engineer who worked for the Technical Inspection Agency of Essen. Q President Reagan chose Anthony Kennedy to be the newest nominee for the vacant spot on the Supreme Court. He is the third in a row that have included first Robert H. Bork and Douglas H. Ginsburg. Judge Kennedy from California is in his early fifties and is labeled more moderate than the first two nominees. Reagan is calling for quick confirmation hearings.

By GARY BAUER, Assistant to the President for Policy Development On hundreds of college and university campuses this year, students have returned not only to be greeted by the usual panoply of activities and issues, but also by a new crusade safe sex. Reacting to the growing national preoccupation with the AIDS epidemic, student groups and school administrations are attempting to educate students about how to avoid contracting this fatal disease. Not surprisingly, given the "open" atmosphere on most campuses, the safe sex crusade has not been constrained by many taboos. On some campuses, safe sex packages have been distributed containing not only the more common contraceptive implements, but also a variety of devices for the aficionados of more exotic activities. Despite this, "safe sex" campaigns are not giving students the full story about AIDS. Indeed, many students are arguably being denied the information that is most likely to assist them in avoiding the AIDS virus. A look at those taboo subjects might be in order. First, few campus efforts seem to be aimed at promoting the most obvious and effective measure to slow down the AIDS epidemic - abstinence. Yet, as Surgeon General C. Everett Koop has indicated time and time again, abstinence is the only foolproof way to avoid this disease. Are we to assume that highly educated young Americans are so enslaved by their passions that they are unable to limit their number of partners or sexual activities - even if failing to do so risks death? Actually, much research shows that many students do abstain or establish a mutually faithful relationship with marriage as the long-term goal. Why the hesitancy to build on these healthy tendencies, particularly when the issue is life or death? Second, many of today's educational efforts are what could be called "sexually egalitarian." That is, they refuse to distinguish or even appear to prefer one type of sexual practice over another. Yet medical research shows that sodomy is probably the most efficient method to transfer the AIDS virus as well as other diseases - for obvious reasons. Why is this informa-
tion censored on so many campuses? Does it illustrate the growing power of gay rights activists who not only want to be tolerated, but want the culture at large to affirm and support the legitimacy of the gay life-style? In fact, on many campuses students are surprised to find that no one is willing to assert and defend the moral and religious norms they learned from their families and churches. Even though homosexual behavior, if embraced by a sizable proportion of the population, would result in a dying civilization in a generation or so, it is taboo to describe this behavior as socially
undesirable, unnatural or deviant. As a result, students are denied the best medical advice available - which is to avoid dangerous sexual activities associated primarily, but not exclusively, with the gay community. Writing in National Review magazine, Jeffrey Hart recently alluded to what in literature is called the "presence of the absence." Just as the dog that didn't bark helped Sherlock Holmes once solve a case, what is absent in the safesex campaign may be telling us an important bit of information about the cultural atmosphere on many campuses.

Johnson: 'we want to hear any comment' By HOLLY PREBLE In the past few weeks, there have been controversies concerning the quality of the ARA dining hall services. Rick Johnson, the head of ARA at Longwood, met with this Rotunda reporter to talk about issues dealt with in recent issues of the paper. In the 10/27 issue of the Rotunda, the editor made a point that we "had to eat chicken filets on a bun for lunch and hamburgers for dinner two days in a row." To this remark Rick Johnson said, "the . . . point of repetitiousness is important, (even though) the idea of having chicken filets back to back (was) not a good one." Later he said, "We consciously put filets on the menu because (some students) told us they wanted them. But now that we have them every week, people get sick of them." Rick Johnson, however, welcomes any comment on the ARA dining services so that he and the dining hall crew can better know how to keep improving the food they serve. Since Mr. Johnson has received complaints about the chicken filets, they are now redoing the menu and are trying to incorporate more variety in the menu. The problem, though, is that when there is something new on the menu that a lot of students want, the results are not predictable. For example, they gave us sandwiches on a Sunday night because some students told them they wanted that. Said Mr. Johnson, "When we put the new Sunday menu on ... we did it with the best of intentions, but the plan backfired." Right now, in response to many complaints, ARA is changing the Friday night menu. They will serve carved meats to order. Alternating weeks, they will have beef, ham, and turkey breast. Another new item coming soon is hot grilled sandwiches made to order at lunch. Not just grilled cheese sandwiches, but grilled beef with cheese, grilled tuna and provolone cheese, grilled turkey and swiss cheese on rye. There will be ten to twelve items to choose from. Rick Johnson made it clear that he wants to hear what they are doing wrong in serving us. "We just want to improve ... we want to hear any complaint... and I try to work on (those) that I hear."

Candidates Confess Marijuana Use By MATT PETERMAN Should indiscretions bar candidates from public office? A consensus of many people seen on the news and quoted in newspapers, believe the answer is no, even if they smoked marijuana. Secretary of Education William J. Bennett is one who believes "youthful discretions are allowed," however, college professors should serve as a role for their students. Why all the questions about marijuana lately? Because three prominent candidates, one of which is no longer, recently got wrapped up in the controversy. First Douglas H. Ginsburg, President Reagan's second nominee for the Supreme Court after Judge Bork was shut down. Though an F.B.I, background check failed to uncover that Judge Ginsburg had smoked pot, he said it himself on the first Thursday of this month. The stigma of drug use prompted 20-30 conservative congressmen to lobby the White House to drop the nomination.

At this point, the President, who has led a fight against illegal drug use in the country, concentrating on the federal workplace seemed trapped. "The President stands by the nominee" was the official word. Sen. Gorden Humphrey, New Hampshire Republican echoed a sentiment that many who supported Ginsburg had. "I think it's on indiscretion, a college-student indiscretion, comparable to plagiarism," he said. Ginsburg was also cited for smoking marijuana as a professor of Harvard up until seven years ago. Judge Ginsburg's chances to serve on the high bench seemed derailed. William Bennett telephoned the judge to ask him to withdraw and soon after he did. On Saturday November 7th, he asked President Reagan not to send his formal nomination to the Senate. In a Newsweek poll conducted a day after Ginsburg announcement, 69 percent of 507 adults interviewed did not think marijuana use was a reason to disqualify Ginsburg. However, an overwhelming
number, 77 percent opposed the legalization of marijuana, up from 72 percent in 1982. Ginsburg was not alone. Two Democratic candidates for President admitted to using marijuana in their younger years: Sen. Albert Gore Jr. and former Gov. Bruce Babbitt.

They both agree that doing a show alone is nice for a while, but it can start to get really boring.

Lancers Finish 13th In Division 11
A record-breaking Lancer soccer season ended on a sour note Saturday when Liberty got a goal in each half from junior Chris Dickens and beat Longwood 2-0 to win a share of the Virginia Intercollegiate Soccer Association title. Finishing the season 7-10-2, Liberty shares the crown with Lynchburg (12-5-2) which beat Virginia Wesleyan 3-1 in the other VISA semifinal November 8. Because of an agreement between
AN OPPORTUNITY MISSED - Longwood missed a golden opportunity to score against Liberty in the second half of Saturday's VISA playoff game. As seen in the 2 phoLiberty and Lynchburg not to play each other, the two teams will share the 1987 VISA crown. Longwood ended the year 14-4-1 and was ranked 13th in the final Division II poll which came out last week. The Lancers broke numerous team and individual records while coming up with the second best record in the history of the program. "We had a great season, but it's a shame it had to end with a loss," said coach Rich Posipanko. "Liberty has a very strong team." For the year, Longwood set new records for most goals in a season (64) and fewest goals allowed (16), highest national rank (6th), and highest regional rank (1st), and tied the mark for
shutouts in a season (10). Senior goalkeeper Dave Goerke broke the record for shutouts in a season (9) and ended the year with a goals against average of 0.89. All-America candidate Ray Jones set new standards for goals in a game (5), season (29) and ranks third in career scoring. Scoring in seven consecutive games, Jones had a season and career record four hat-tricks. Jones also had 10 assists, the second best season mark ever. Five Lancers Named All-Eastern Division Jones, Goerke, Mike Edge, John Barone, and Jeff Robinson have been named to the Virginia Intercollegiate Soccer Association All-Eastern team for 1987. Robinson is a three-time choice for all-division, while Edge, Barone and Goerke are repeaters from last season. The five will play for the East in the VISA East-West All-Star Game to be held December 6 at Longwood. Posipanko and Virginia Wesleyan coach Rob Brewer will coach the East.
By MIKE McGRATH The NFL strike has had a definite effect on the quality of teams. Since the strike ended, the teams that were usually at the bottom of the ladder have risen into contention. Some of the teams that are on top of the divisions have fallen into the cellar. The Super Bowl Champion New York Giants are at the bottom of the NFC East and look like that they will stay there the rest of the season. The L.A. Raiders and Denver Broncos have also slipped from the elite this season. On the other of the coin teams that have been down and out for so long have risen. The Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, Houston Oilers, and the New Orleans Saints are all winning ballgames this year. In the AFC East it is a five way tie for first with the Bills and Colts in the thick of things. The Houston Oilers are also in a tie for the lead in their division at 5-3 with the Steelers and the Browns.

"We plan to play an uptempo game and use a lot of players," said Duncan. "This is not the best ball-handling team we've had, but we have a little more overall talent than in the past. We can bring four or five players off the bench and not lose much." "We saw evidence today (against the Blue Angels) that we have strength inside," said Duncan. "If we can get consistent play from our guards we could have a pretty tough team. We should have better balance in our outside shooting than in the past."
