Campus fraternities kicked off GREEK WEEK 1988 on Sunday with song and games and a joint effort stroll about campus.

Finnish Students Came and Went

A group of 35 Finnish students came to see professors they'd met while the instructors were teaching at the University of Jyvaskyla in recent years. By NANCY RUFF Thirty-five fourth-year Finnish students visited Longwood March 30-April 6. The students, physical education majors, on spring break, from the University of Jyvaskyla, traveled 13-20 hours via


Helsinki and Frankfurt before arriving at Dulles National Airport. After another four hours by bus, the Finns reached Farmville. Dr. Nelson Neal, who taught dance at the University of Jyvaskyla for five months, es-

corted the group to Nags Head and Kitty Hawk over Easter weekend. He also gave them a tour of Richmond, and Charlottes ville. The students were impressed with the geographical variety in such a small area, in contrast to Finland, which has few nice beaches and no mountains. The athletic, tanned visitors also saw the Catalinas, Longwood's synchronized swim team and the dance program, "Winds of Color." Monday night the Finns performed the "Liikunailta" to a full house in the dance studio. The entertaining show combined moderri dance, comedy acts and Finnish songs. The guests wrapped up their visit with a party at D.T. Bradley's Tuesday night before leaving the following day. One student, holding up a giant piggy bank, instructed his fellow Finns to deposit coins so that Longwood students might visit Finland.

There will be no tuition increase at Longwood College next year for Virginia residents. In a rare departure from the national norm of recent years, tuition for in-state residents for the 1988-89 academic year will be $1,488, the same as this year. About 90 percent of Longwood's undergraduate students are Virginia residents. The college's Board of Visitors set the new tuition and fees Friday. "This is very rare; it might be a first for Longwood," said Richard Hurley, vice president for business and legislative affairs. Dan Hix, finance coordinator for the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia, agreed that the decision was "unusual." The only similar cases in recent years occurred at Virginia State University, where tuition and fees for all students remained the same in 1984-86, and with the state's community colleges, where tuition dropped slightly last year. "Tuition at Virginia's colleges and universities held steady for a few years in the mid-1970s, but has been going up ever since," he said. "Increases in tuition have been averaging between eight and 10 percent in recent years." Last year, tuition and fees increased by an average of 7.6 percent at state-assisted colleges and universities, and increases also averaged 7.6 percent at private institutions in Virginia. Longwood's overall increase last year was 4.2 percent for Virginia residents and 5.9 percent for out-of-state students. Next year, at Longwood, the overall cost for a Virginia student living on-campus will increase by only $100 - from $5,398 to $5,498, or 1.8 percent - for those on the 15-meal plan. About 70 percent of the students choose this meal plan. The $100 overall increase reflects a $140 increase in room and board and a $40 decrease in the comprehensive fee. About 85 percent of the students live on-campus. Tuition for out-of-state students at Longwood will be $3,274, a $298 increase. The total cost for out-of-state students living in residence halls will rise from $6,886 to $7,284, or six percent. The decision to hold the line on in-state tuition was prompted by optimism over projected enrollment for next year. "For the first time since I've been here, we feel comfortable in our enrollment projections. We've had two strong years of enrollment, and everything looks good for the coming year." "The registrar's office has scheduled about 1,900 students for pre registration for next fall, as opposed to 1,700 last year," said Robert Chonko, director of admissions and enrollment management. "That's an initial sign these students will be back. That rate probably will be the highest in our history." Longwood expects to enroll about 2,823 full-time undergraduates this fall. About 720 will be freshmen and 197 will be transfer students. Âť Longwood expects to receive 4,000 applications - a 17.2 percent increase over last year - and probably will close freshman admissions June 1, several months earlier than usual. A waiting list will be used for subsequent applicants. Because of increased applications, Longwood has been more selective in the students it accepts, Chonko said. He also noted that Longwood's percentage increase in applications is "one of the highest of any I have seen reported by any public college or university in Virginia." This reflects a continuing trend at Longood, where each year for the past six years" the College has had the largest number of applicants in its history.

People are people are people... Dear Editor, I am writing in response to the letter in the March 29 issue of the Rotunda, submitted by Anne Meade Stockdell. I am not writing to criticize Miss Stockdell's views, but to point out some things to the entire student body that come to my mind after reading this letter. Firstly, why is there a constant battle between Greeks and non-Greeks? Each student on campus is an individual with different needs and different talents. Each satisfies his needs and uses his talents in different ways. The Greek system is a very important part of campus life, but I do not think by any means it is the "backbone" of Longwobd College. Miss Stockdell, ' the Greek organizations might be the "backbone" of your life, but I think Longwood would survive if they did not exist. Included in Longwood's goals, and for that matter any other college's goals, is to be an institution that offers a variety of opportunity for each individual. Students choose to be scholars, athletes, SGA members, ambassadors, spirit leaders, members of military programs, artists, performers, etc. A student can be every one of these things and be Greek. The fulfillment that students get from being a member of a fraternal organization is very important to those involved, but Miss Stockdell, you should realize that just because you are Greek does not mean you are among the select. You chose to be Greek to satisfy your needs. Others of us find fulfillment in other organizations around campus. I pride myself in being a good student, a collegiate athlete and a Longwood Ambassador and I am very "satisfied with my status." As for social activities, snack bar. D. T. Bradley s, etc., let me ask a question. Are there other forms of entertainment on this campus? What about athletic events, dance performances, drama and music presentations, lecture seminars, art ex-


To the Editor

hibits, and clubs? Yes, Greeks are involved in these things: not simply because they are Greek, but because they are talented individuals just like the rest of us. Miss Stockdell, we "GDI's" do enjoy the "special activities" that you sponsor and can also appreciate the hard work you do within your organizations and for charities. Don't the Greeks also enjoy events that non-Greeks sponsor such as sporting events? Can't you also appreciate the hard work and dedication that we do? You seem to consider independents privileged to be allowed to participate in Greeksponsored events. Don't be so narrow-minded as to think that those activities are the only forms of entertainment we can find. I could continue, but I think my point has been made. I hope the entire student body, Greeks and non-Greeks, realizes that each organization and each individual on campus is vital to the "Longwood Experience" and that we are all proud of our affiliations. Let's try not to pretend that our own organization alone holds Longwood together! Respectfully, Lynda Chenoweth

Have some pride! Dear Editor, I have come to the conclusion that many students are not happy unless they have someone or something to bitch about. This, my friend, is a shame because we all know that what one gets from something is equivalent to what he contributes to it. Is it fair to assume that their contributions are bringing them an abundance of joy? I hope so because it really annoys those of us who do like Longwood and we are sick and tired of students' unfounded complaints. As a Longwood legacy, over spring break I had the opportunity to attend an alumni chapter meeting, and was ashamed of some of my

peers as I watched this group of ladies, some from classes as early as 1929, proudly reminisce about their alma mater. I have to wonder if seventy years from now will we have the same pride in our school that these ladies shared, or will we still be searching for petty faults and flaws? Beth Williams

Jarman not to blame for S-UN's lack of gain Dear Editor: I am writing to respond to the editorial in last week's issue that cited "poor campuswide planning" as causing a low turnout to S-UN's 1964 concert. Ms. Justis felt that certain events conflicted and caused the low turnout. This is quite possible, but several of her facts were a bit off. First of all, the production of "Grease" was held on the night of the concert. Last week's editorial stated that "the production of Grease was planned after S-UN had authorization to go ahead with 1964." This is not true. All plays are scheduled the year before they take place. In fact, the production was noted on the Handbook calendar. Secondly, the ROTC was mentioned. This event took place at Hampden-Sydney. How can Longwood have any say about what takes place on another campus? Finally, Ms. Justis said it would be "logical" to have an office that coordinates campus events. It is quite logical, and we do have such an office. All major campus events are scheduled through Phyllis Mable's office. Representatives from various organizations and departments meet with her in the spring to schedule the next year. The meeting for next year took place on March 28. It is quite important to schedule things properly. I am sorry that there wasn't a better turnout for the concert, but it was hardly any one group's fault. Gene Kerns



Stop Cox Slobs! Dear Editor, I am a very unhappy resident of Cox dorm. I would like to express by displeasure at the broken vending machine in the downstairs lounge, that, by the way, was just fixed one week and two days before this writing. Not only was the vending machine broken, but the cigarette machine as well. What is this place coming to? It is very disturbing to walk into the lounge and find that the vending machine that was just restocked and the glass replaced is broken again. There was glass scattered all over the floor, and of course the candy was stolen. This is no way for Longwood to make money! Rumor has it that the Deltas who live in Cox on the ground floor are responsible for this act of vandalism. It is also rumored that the Deltas will be charged for the damage to both machines. I do not believe that it is the Deltas who are responsible for the damage. There is no proof that a member of their fraternity broke either of the machines, therefore I do not think the Deltas should be charged. I do have some suggestions that will keep the vending machines in working order all year round. If the machines were placed in the front foyer or study lounge, near both the front office and the REC's room, there would be less chance of the machines being broken. Many residents have discussed this and think it is the best possible solution. Even though I'm disgusted with the quantity of vandalism in this dorm, I believe in justice and I don't think the Deltas should be blamed for everything that happens in Cox. If anyone does have information about the vending machines in Cox, please, please, please, notify campus police or LAVA (Longwood Against Vandalism Association): they can and will do something about it! Signed, An unhappy resident of Cox, Dina Marie Schiano

A Radford error and a single by Eric Hutzler put two men on base, and then Davis delivered a two-out double to plate both runs. Mark Moeller walked to keep the threat alive, but Conroy struck out to end the game. Watson went the distance for Longwood, taking his third loss against one victory. He struck out eight, walked five and allowed nine hits. He had a triple to go with his two-run homer. Davis, a senior shortstop, continues to lead the Lancers with a .520 batting average, 43 RBIs, nine homers, 11 doubles and four triples. Watson was Longwood's hottest hitter last week going 6-12 with two doubles, a triple and a homer while boosting his average to .295.

a sacrifice fly and an error put LC up 6-0. Greylin Rice drove in two runs with a single and Robert Jackson plated another with a double. Richmond got four runs in the fourth off Lancer starter Dennis Hale and battered reliever Steve Gedro for seven runs over the final four innings. Homeruns by Robbie Smith and Kelvin Davis completed LC's scoring. Radford, which beat the Lancers for the first time after six straight setbacks, shook loose from a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the sixth inning, using four hits and three walks to score five runs off Longwood pitcher Frankie Watson. Also hitting well for Longwood are: Jackson, (.359, 5 homers, 30 RBI), Smith, (.362, 5 doubles, 10 RBIs), Pete Criscione (.342, 7 doubles, 3 triples, 15 RBIs).

Softball Wins 6 of 8 Finishes Second inUNCG Tournament By MICHAEL K. PHILLIPS The Longwood softball team traveled to Greensboro, North Carolina, last weekend and won five of six games to finish second in the UNCG Invitational Softball Tournament. Coupled with a split at Ferrum Tuesday, the Lady Lancers won six of eight games last week, boosting their record to 15-5. Longwood played its fourteenth consecutive road game at Averett College Monday of this week and hosts Virginia Wesleyan Tuesday at 2:30 on the Farmville Armory Field. The Lady Lancers started tournament play Friday with first round wins over Baptist (8-7) and St. Augustine's (8-5). Saturday morning brought the final first round game, a 20-19 win over Greensboro, and the start of single elimination. Coach Loretta Coughlin and her squad eliminated Ferrum in the quarterfinals 9-4 and host UNCG 3-0 in the semifinals before being shut out by Baptist 10-0 in the championship game. Longwood co-captain Tina Hall again led the team as she raised her batting average to .514. Hall forced opposing outfielders to play Oil the warning track. The senior rightfielcder hit 14-22 (.636), with nine runs, 12 RBIs, four doubles, three triples, a homerun, and five stolen bases in five attempts.

Although out-hit 11-10, LC and pitcher Stacey Thompson pulled out the win. Chris LeBel hit 3-4 with four RBIs, the first RBI on a second inning double which proved to be the game winner. Against host UNCG in the semi-finals Longwood was again out hit (7-5), but again won. Miller was on the mound as she lowered her ERA to 2.19. Hall had two of LC's five hits with a triple and a double. Despite a dramatic loss, Longwood accomplished a lot last weekend, leaving Greensboro with its head held high. Coach Loretta Coughlin now posts a 15-5 record, the best ever for a LC softball team. The team's 15 wins are five more than last year's 10-8-1. The Lady Lancers have eight games remaining and, with the coaching, desire, depth, and ability that they possess, should win approximately eight. Throughout the season and especially in two tournaments, Longwood has established itself as a team to be reckoned with. LC is not the team to beat.

By NIGEL SMITHERS I haven't read this book. I haven't even bought it yet. There are good reasons for this. When I bought my copy of Bill Watterson's first Calvin and Hobbes comic strip anthology, fittingly titled Calvin and Hobbes, I made myself promise that I would not run home and read the whole thing in one sitting right off the bat (as 1 have with every Far Side and Bloom County book I've purchased). No, this time it was going to be different: I was only going to read one page each day. I got home, read one page, put the volume down and walked away, came back fifteen minutes later and finished the thing off like gangbusters. I'm afraid of this happening again, I tell you. Especially now, as the end of the semester creeps up on me - I can see it now: Prof.: "Nigel, where is your term paper?"

strips: Peanuts, Dennis the Menace, Family Circus - the list could go on. These little people and their antics have been around for years, and suddenly some new kid on the block comes along and more or less steals the show. How? Why? Perhaps Watterson has hit upon the winning combination, taking the finest assets of each of our favorite comic kids and rolling them all into one. Calvin

Creation Not A Science By SCOTT LOVING Dr. William A. Shear gave the final Faculty Colloquium Lecture for this year on Wednesday, April 6. In his lecture, Shear discussed the rivalry between the supporters of Creation Science and those of Natural Selection. Shear then went on to explain that Creation Science was not a science at all, but only existed through the manipulation of scientific data. Shear stated that Creation Science was originally set up as a counterweight to Charles Darwin's ideas about Natural Selection, otherwise known as Evolution. Supporters of Creation Science argue that man was placed on Earth by a Creator, as opposed to the arguement that man evolved through Natural Selection. Shear wrapped up his lecture by saying that Creation can be argued on religious grounds, but cannot be argued as a science. Shear is a professor of biology at Hampden-Sydney College.




roller and R. Lynch and T. Channing. The dance, with its mixture of fast movements and sometimes slow, almost motionless ones, seemed to evoke the times when one must take brisk, decisive action or slowly struggle to take the next step. "Out and About," a Rockettes-like tap dance was a fresh departure from existing dance forms. The work, choreographed by Tammy TiptonNay was set to "Figleaf Rag" by Scott Joplin. With contagious energy and enthusiasm, dancers in "Winds of Color" established a direct link to a responsive audience.

and Observations of Peter Leroy, here is a funny, poignant, and sexy story about two people so well and thoroughly coupled that the heat of their union fuses the word and into 'n' when it comes between their names." Last year at this time Longwood freshmen were nearing completion of the eight installments in Peter's story published by Warner Books (New York) and Apple-wood Books (Cambridge, Massachussetts). In this series, Peter grows from infancy to young adulthood, becoming in "Call Me Larry" the author of Larry Peters adventure stories for boys. In Kraft's latest work, Peter tells the story of his grandparents' romance, beginning at "the upstate New York mill

town of Chacallit, Lorna's birthplace on the bank of the Whatsit River, to Babbington, Long Island, where Herb runs the local Studebacker dealership, to Punta Chachazuda, Florida, where the couple finally settles." Their history also traces the birth and development of the erotic jewelry business in the United States. Unknown to Peter, his grandparents had second careers, in addition to selling Studebakders and working in a slide rule factory. An added feature are photographs from the story included in the middle of the text. The book is an alternate selection in the Literary Guild this month and is already receiving enthusiastic reviews (as in Publishers Weekly, 26 February 1988).

The British born golfer landed on top for his second major golf title. jP Several deadlines have been missed in the hijacking of a Kuwaiti airliner now stranded in Cyprus. The hijackers are threatening to kill the members of the Kuwaiti royal family if the plane was not refueled. In a move of solidarity, factors in Lebanon holding



American hostages say they will kill all of them if the plane is stormed. The ordeal begun 8 days ago. ^$3 The Federal Government released a study last week indicating a reduction of fat present in meat of all kinds. Among some of the reasons cited were better breeding options and better management. The meat packers say that animal products can be part of a healthy diet as advances in meat processing continue to improve.
