Sports Interview

By TAMARA L. BROWN On October 25, 1987, many Longwood students, as well as members of the Farmville community will be walking six miles to do their share in combatting world hunger. Participants in the CROP walk for hunger receive pledge sheets on which sponsors pledge money for each mile walked. For example, a sponsor pledging 50 cents would be donating $3 to CROP for the sixmile walk. By enlisting sponsors who pledge funds for every mile or kilometer they walk, CROP walkers have raised more than $31 million to help stop hunger since 1969. CROP donations are used by the Church World Service (CWS) to meet the human needs of people in more than 70 countries through partner agencies on the scene. However, because CROP events are worldwide, donors may designate their gifts to other aproved international, hunger-fighting agencies. Family health services, food production, and vocational training are 3ome of the ways CROP event gifts make a difference to persons less fortunate than we are. CWS also supports activities which help bring about more constructive policies affecting human needs. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated is sponsoring the CROP walk on campus. If you are interested in walking, or donating money, please contact Kathleen Watkins, the community service coordinator for the sorority, in Curry 421 or at 392-7818. One person alone cannot solve the staggering problem of world hunger. Working together with our brothers and sisters on campus, and around the world, we can do more than we can do alone.

JASON BARTAS dad is the dean of Education." Joe Bagby was interested in the employment opportunity offered him by Coach Posipanko because, as he told us," I live down the street and I like to watch the games." Will O'Connor informed the Rotunda that he and the boys each get a dollar a game from the coach, "and an extra dollar if the games goes into overtime". They get an extra dollar

for the second game of a tournament, too. Ballboy John Dalton, who was out cleaning yards for the afternoon, could not be reached for comment. A bit of quick research showed that as far as the financial aspects of their current jobs go, the boys are not doing as bad as one might think. Chatting briefly with Kevin Stanton of the Richmond Braves Diamond Employee office revealed that bat boys at the Diamond are hired from amongest people currently employed there. "It's a prestigeous job," commented Stanton;" Everybody wants it. We can only pick from our hardest workers." Mr. Stanton quoted starting salaries for the Richmond Braves bat boys as being minimum wage. The Farmville area offers slim pickings for qualified ball boys: Longwood is the only local establishment that hires ballboys. Hampden-Sydney has a work-study program to fill this position in their sports department.

missing those drinking without proper I.D., D.T.'s has tried to curb the problem. Unfortunately, that isn't enough. The ABC commission is strongly suggesting that D.T.'s welcome only those of legal drinking age. Fortunately for the students, Mr. Dickie Jones, owner of D.T. Bradley's, is fighting for the students on their behalf. "(The students) are good kids," says Mr. Jones. "They come to dance and have a good time. It's only a few (people) that mess things up for everyone else." Mr. Jones has also stated that he will not ban the 18, 19, and 20-year-olds from his establishment until there is a law that says he must do so. He will, however, continue to be strict about not allowing underage drinking in D.T.'s. Anyone caught with a phony I.D. will be turned away and their I.D. confiscated. If a college group is

hosting one evening and ;m underage member is caught drinking, the group will not be allowed to host anymore. "Bouncers" and other staff members will also continue to watch for illegal drinkers. One small change will take place in the establishment s policy. Starting at 10 p.m. each night, if there is a full house, then those of legal drinking age will be allowed in first, and underage patrons will wait their turn. If there is a line outside as people leave, others may go in. All of this will go towards controlling the problem of underage drinking. Mr. Jones says that the rn-st way students can help to keep D.T. Bradley's open is to not drink in the establishment if they are underage. Hopefully, with the help of the students, Mr. Jones and his staff will be able to keep D.T. s open to ev eryone.

SGA: BACK IN ACTION I pvom ing Even Is The Student Government Association, coming off of one of its most successful and busiest semesters, is in the process of trying to establish programs that will interest the students. "We want to do more than just solve problems. We want to take an active role in the educating process," said Ricky Otey, SGA President. "People expect a lot from SGA. Our accomplishments proves they've got a right to expect a lot from us. We've got the task now of living up to our own standards." SGA will sponsor an OPEN FORUM on Wednesday October 14 at 1:00 p.m. in the VA Room. Items that may be discussed are Parking, Room Inspections, Renovations, and the Longwood Seminar. There will also be a special announcement by J. Paul Hurt, SGA Vice President, concerning the SGA elections to be held on Wednesday November 18. Stu-

dents are encouraged to attend and to bring questions and concerns. Any club that would like to appeal for money through the Student Government needs to pick up an appeals application in the information office. This form must be returned to Ricky Otey by Thursday October 15. There is a new 24 hour it tidy room open for students. It is located in Barlow. Students are encouraged to make use of this new facility. SGA elections will be held on Wednesday, November 1 B 1987. All Student Senate positions, including Honor Board and Judicial Board positions, will be up for election. Anyone interested in running for a position may contact Dr Jim Crowl. The next SGA meeting will be held on Thursday. October 22 at 6 p.m. in the Conference Room of Lankford.

Longwood College looks trashy on many occasions for all the wrong reasons. Is it because Longwood students are natural slobs with no respect for the school they pride themselves in? No! The fact of the matter remains: Longwood College has very few trash cans in which to dispose waste. Oktoberfest was a disaster with respect to sanitation as litter was scattered haplessly around, void of any home. The trash cans that were around were packed solid with debris, making them a perfect haven for bees who enjoyed them while becoming a public nuisance. If the school wants the campus beautified, we must start with the basics or all progress will be clouded in a shroud of sprinkled garbage. - Matt Peterman

SSHSfSS^SSS INTERFAITH HUNGER APPEAL WORLD FOOD DAY OCTOBER 16,1987 The only real "experts" on hunger are hungry people, and their hunger is caused by poverty. On World Food Day, 1987, the agencies of the Interfaith Hunger Appeal (IHA) ask you to reflect on this statement and support activities that enable people to lift themselves from the conditions that deny them access to food. The problem of hunger cannot be solved by giving away food, although that may also be necessary in times of emergency. Rather, hunger will diminish only when those in need have the purchasing power and the opportunities to grow or buy their own food - in other words to become self-reliant. Self-reliance in turn, can ba achieved only through a process of development in which people work together to remove the barriers - some of them institutional - that prevent the poor from improving their lives. All too often the social and economic growth of societies is achieved at the expense of those who are most in need. The benefits of growth must be spread broadly among all sectors of society. To foster self-reliance, the agencies of IHA, Catholic Relief Services, Church World Service, Lutheran World Relief, and The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, work in partnership with overseas colleagues to provide agricultural training, expand credit opportunities, promote income-generating activities and enhance decision-making skills of poor people. Removing barriers to development and helping to create opportunities allows for the remarkable resourcefulness, wisdom and skills of capable people to flourish. Sharing experiences and conclusions, the agencies of IHA respond to specific needs by acknowledging and building on the talents and customs of their partners in the developing world. You may be thinking, "But what can I do?" "I am only one person." You can do more than you think by (1) understanding the problems and causes of hunger and actively involving yourself in the development of public policies that address these injustices, (2) organizing or joining campus groups that inform and motivate others to a better understanding of global hunger and (3) upon graduation, involving your corporation, community, and religious organizations in efforts that will make the lives of some 500 million people more humane. What can you do? You can do a great deal by keeping informed and involved. Msgr. Robert J. Coll Executive Director

Last week's issue of The Rotunda reportedly caused a bit of hullaballoo down in the Student Services and Dean of Students' Offices. Apparently, incalculable numbers of freshmen and South Cunningham denizens - some concerned, some irate - were motivated to call and inquire as to the validity of "facts" stated in the Gnupie section of the paper. Catch a clue! Do not, in the future, accept anything printed on a page with a gnu head at the top of it as bonafide fact. **tttf*I*C

Still in the Spotlight. To the Editor: In response to last week's Letter to the Editor from the "Student for Truth in Journalism ", I would like to truly "set the record straight" as far as the radio station is concerned. I have been with the station since its "second coming" back in the Spring of 1985, and I know how things worked. First off, the editorial stated that Sonny Merchant was the person who took the initiative and got WUTA back on the air. Not true. Granted, it was not a "handful of radio enthusiasts" who got the station started, as the September 29 "DJ in the Spotlight" stated: this statement is inaccurate. But Sonny's part in putting the station back together was not as great as we have been lead to believe. Actually, it was a guy named Gus Sail as who went to all of the meetings with the administration in trying to get WUTA broadcasting again. Sonny was there too, but it was Gus who did most of the talking. Gus has since departed Longwood College. Sonny Merchant did have a part, but that part was only minimal. Secondly, the letter referred to my recalling the stations training methods for new disc jockeys. The "Spotlight" article quoted me as saying that I was trained, auditioned, and put on the air at the same time, whereas the editorial said, "(new DJ's) went on the air with a more experienced DJ until they felt comfortable and relaxed on the air." This statement and the one I made in the

earlier article are synonomous. My training consisted of being told how the equipment worked by an experienced DJ. I was then put on the airimmediately, with the same DJ supervising. That was my training and audition. A lot of other new DJ's on the old WUTA were trained, auditioned, and put on the air in much the same manner. This is not how we do things now at WLCX. A new DJ must now complete six hours of off the air training and then pass an audition before being allowed to go on the air. I hope this clears up any false impressions that may have been left by the articles of the past two weeks. Jim Long

GNUPIE: Freshman Feedback Dear Editor, I just read your article about No cars for Freshmen after fall break. Is this a true fact or is it a crude joke. I'm a car owner and I feel it won't change matters. Just face it Longwood, you are going to have to spend money on parking areas for your students. We have had this problem long enough. I also do not feel the police should just blame the freshmen for being wild natured; I know some upper classmen who just fly around here on bikes. Please give us more information soon!

The Longwood College Honor System was founded in 1910 so that high standards of personal integrity may be set in order to provide a healthy community for which students to live in. A community not to be limited or restrained by the low personal values of an undesirable few. Through evolution of the Honor System; it has come to be administered by a twelve member studentelected board, which ultimately receives its power from the President of the College via the Student Government Association. The Board is charged with several responsibilities, the first of which is the promotion and enforcement of the Honor Code. The Board must interpret and publish the constitution

Monster Nessie, Candidate Jesse, And Bork By MATT PETERMAN G According to (AP), "The biggest scientific search for the Loch Ness Monster ended yesterday," resulting in some sonar contacts with large objects, but still no sign of the legend that continues to haunt Scotland. Sonar showed large blips in the middle of the 754 foot deep loch, the most significant looking like an inverted V 620 feet down. Nessie is believed to be either something left over from pre-historic times or a creature not yet discovered. The expedition featured about 20 boats who swept the loch with sonar. The three-day expedition carried a price tag of 1.6 million dollars. D Democratic Presidential hopeful, Jesse Jackson declared himself a candidate for

AFC Is Here To Help Bv By CINDY GOOD If you need money, they've got it to give! The Activities Funds Committee (AFC) (formerly the Student Activities Allocation Committee) has a total of $2,000 this year to give to qualifying clubs and organizations on campus. The AFC was organized last semester after Paul Striffolino, Director of the Student Union, announced during the Longwood leadership convention last February that money was available for student activities. With campus-wide mixers becoming a thing of the past due to the raise of the legal drinking age, the concern for student activities, especially on weekends, grew. This concern sparked the administration to allocate the $2,000 for organizations to use as seed money to sponsor campuswide events. It is hoped that through the allocation of funds, more campus-wide activities will provide opportunity for student involvement in

LONGWOOD BUSINESS INNOVATION (ALU (A CENTER SEEKING INTERNS By MATT PETERMAN The Longwood Business Innovation Center (LBIC) has announced four openings in its internship program for next semester. As an intern, one would perform "the day to day activities of the Center and be involved in managerial and technical assistance projects", according to Dr. Larry Minks, Executive Director of the Center. Students chosen for the internships will not only participate in many aspects of management and gain valuable experience, but also earn three credit hours. Applicants should be from the School of Business and Economics and preferably be attending Longgood in the Fall of 1988 as well. LBIC opened its doors last year and promotes four primary objectives: To help stimulate economic, industrial, and community development programs, to improve new enterprise formation and development, to enhance the level of productivity and human resource development, and to improve organization development methods and processes. Throughout the school year, with the help of Longwood Students, LBIC has assisted new and existing organizations in becoming more competitive and prosperous, and has helped them expand. According to Dr. Minks, "the Center was recently cited in a bulletin by the National Alliance

James Boston Junior Honestly? The thriving nightlife in Farmville! In fact, I almost didn't come 'cuz I didn't think I could handle it.

Jo Jo Katz Senior Because it was small enough to give everyone a chance to become involved and be a leader, or to become whatever they wanted. Everyone has the attention that they need here.

"Can't Buy Me Love" By RENEE DePRIEST "Can't Buy Me Love" is a light-hearted movie that takes you back to high school land and its stereotypes: the sluts, the bee-bop cheerleaders, the geeks, and the football player jerks. This is about Ronald, the geek who dreams of going out with the head cheerleader and being popular. His opportunity arrives when, by exchanging favors, they arrive at a temporary agreement. In her part of the deal, the cheerleader chick holds his hand in the hallways, lets him eat with her at the "popular" table during lunch, and basi-

cally pretends she likes him. And so Ronald goes from "geek to shiek" and has a blast - for a while. The story evolves and eventually Ronald learns that money can buy him popularity, but it 'can't buy him love." Even though this rnovie had a predictable storyline and was rather corny at times, it did have very touching and honest moments. There were also hilarious scenes. Patrick Dempsey and the leading actress did a fine job of acting. The rating I give it is 2 1/2 stars out of four.

Can you pass the E.A.T.? Campuses around the nation are preparing for the fourth annual National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week (October 19-25), making ready to test young people on their knowledge of alcohol. How responsible are college students about drinking? Passing the Equivalence Aptitude Test (E.A.T.) is a key measure of how much students know about alcohol consumption. To pass the E.A.T. you must know this simple but crucial formula: The most common servings of beer (12 ounces), wine (5 ounces) and distilled spirits (1 1/4 ounces) contain equal amounts of alcohol. Why is passing the E.A.T. and being part of National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week so important? To be responsible, everyone needs to know facts, not myths about alcohol. Far too many accidents are caused by young people who get behind the wheel of a car thinking "I'm fine. I only had a few beers." Such misinformation is all to often deadly. Maybe that's why 50% of all driving fatalities are caused by drunk drivers. And why twothirds of all those arrested for DWI "just had a few beers."

Morrison Biography Worth The Hunt By TONYA GREENE No One Here Gets Out Alive is a book by Jerry Hopkins and Danny Sugerman. It is a biography of Jim Morrison, lead singer of the 1960s San Francisco band The Doors. It explains in detail the life of Morrison as a poet, a singer, and a genius. It starts at the very beginning of Jim's life when he is born while his family is living in Florida. No One Here Gets Out Alive also gives details about his college years, all of his girlfriends, how he came up with the name for The Doors, the steady progression of popularity for The Doors, and all of Jim's personal problems in his grown up life. For example. The Doors got popular so fast that Jim could not handle the pressure. The band played the psychedelic rock of the 60s and people either loved it or hated it. For some people The Doors wasn't a rock group: it was a religion. Morrison had a whole cult following him. He had the ability to hold an entire audi-

ence completely mesmerized, or to start a "rock riot" just by the way he sang. Some of his songs were about war; some were about love or lust and some were about hate, and most of the songs were poems he had written and put to music. At first during his rise to popularity, Morrison was trying several drugs, then he got so he always used drugs in very large amounts. As pressure got worse, he turned to alcohol and eventually he could not function because he was always intoxicated. The book ends by not letting the reader know if Jim Morrison is dead or alive because his body was never found. Some people still think he is alive, and some like to party on his grave in Paris. Even if you're not a Doors fan, this is a great book. It's not very long (no more than 300 pages), but each page is interesting and it goes very quickly. Those of you who are Doors fans will absolutely love this book. If you ever find it, get it and read it.

Player Of The Week

Wins 2 Of 3

Longwood recorded its 100th soccer win last Thursday at home as Ray Jones scored three goals and the Lancers held off a determined upset bid by 19th ranked Mary Washington to take a 3-1 victory. This week the Lancers visit Marymount Tuesday for a 4:00 contest and host Virginia Wesleyan Friday at 2:00 in an important Virginia intercollegiate Soccer Association Eastern Division matchup.

Senior Goalkeeper David Goerke recorded 18 saves in Longwood's 3-1 win over nationally ranked Mary Washington last Wednesday, and for his performance, Goerke has been named Longwood College Player of the Week for the period October 411.

Ranked 19th in Division III last week, the Eagles had a 21-10 advantage in shots. The senior keeper tied the Longwood record for shutouts in a season (6) earlier this season. He would have had his seventh shutout Wednesday, except for a teammate who mistakenly knocked in a goal for Mary Washington. Four of his six shutouts have come at home. The Eagles were the first team to score on Longwood at home this season. Goerke has allowed just nine goals in 12 games for a goals against average of 0.75. A graduate of Cinnaminson High School who transferred to Longwood from Rider, Goerke came on strong at the end of last season to earn a starting spot. He had several outstand-

Series

Intramural Update By CHRIS DOUGLAS Men's Flag Football has finally ended with the Total Package winning the "A" league and the Deltas winning the "B" league. Total Package had to come from the losers' bracket to win 2 very close and controversial games against the Pi Kaps. The winning team was made up of Tim Morris, Mike McGrath, Steve Booker, Kevin Hare, Mike Gillieland, Tony Marshal, Chris Lloyd, Puddy Garrett, Ira Richardson, and Bobby Dobson. The Deltas won the "B" league. The Deltas were: Wade Morcum, Dave Crouse, Danny White, David Taylor, Pete Whitman, Matt Sisk, Elon Kelly, Charlie Parker, Chuck Thorton, John Hamilton, Steve Quincy, Jeff Algor, and Ben Bartley. The Department of Intramurals and Campus Recreation introduced a new sport with 2 on 2 volleyball. This was played in the sand in front of Stubbs. The Men's Division started out with 16 teams. Rob Tressem and Danny White won the tournament losing only 1 match. Janine Bilger and Sarita Thurman were at the top of their division out of 5 teams. Fifteen teams entered the 3 on 3 Basketball. The team calling itself Public Enemy won the tournament without losing a game. Public Enemy is: Bryan Diggs, Charles Gregory, Darrel Johnson and Quintin Kearney. There were no women's teams this year. Twelve teams entered the Men's Bowling with only the Kingpins left in the winners' bracket and Phoenix and Boinkers in the losers' bracket. So far Donny Celata has the high game with a 191 in eight frames, and the Icemen have the high series with a 1017. The Amigos won the Women's Bowling.

The Lancers are now 9-2-1 overall and 1-0 in the Eastern Division of VISA. Last week's ISAA Gatorade Division II poll had Longwood ranked 13th. Thursday's win gives Longwood a record of 100-6320 in 11 seasons of soccer. All but three of those wins have come under coach Rich Posipanka, now in his ninth year. Posipanko has a career mark of 97-43-19 and is also nearing the 100 win plateau.

Soccer Team Wins 100th Game Against Mary Wash 3-1

LAURA FELCII Longwood received strong performances from several players and won two of three games last week in field hockey, beating Maryland Baltimore County Saturday and Georgetown Friday by identical 4-1 scores after losing at Duke Tuesday 4-2. Longwood begins a series of five straight road games this week with a visit to Radford Wednesday for a 4:00 contest and a game at Loyola Saturday at 2:00. Next week the Lady Lancers play at Drexel Monday, at LaSalle Tuesday and at James Madison Thursday before returning home to host Pfeiffer Saturday, October 24. While Longwood had some difficulty adjusting to the astroturf at Duke Tuesday, Friday's game on turf at Georgetown was a different story. Outshooting the Lady Hoyas 43-16, LC got goals from Kris Meaney, Diane Brown, Traci Strickland and Celeste Lloyd. Strickland's goal was her seventh of the year. Beanie Felch had two assists in the contest while Strickland and Liz Annet had one each. Top defenders were Claye Conkwright with 18 interceptions/tackles, Diane Bingler with 16 and Annet with 16. In Saturday's win over UMBC Annet scored her seventh goal of the season while Brown, Laura Goetz and Conkwright also had goals. Felch and Bingler recorded assists while Conkwright led in interceptions/tackles with 19. Scoring in Tuesday's 4-2 loss at Duke were Felch and Strickland. The game was tied 1-1 at the half, before the Lady Blue Devils converted three times in the second stanza for the win. Strickland and Bingler had assists while Conkwright had 23 interceptions/tackles. Trailing Annet and Strickland (both with seven goals) are Goetz with five, Felch with four and Conkwright with four.

LIM SHOOTS FOR LANCERS; Longwood's Kenny Lim fires a shot in Wednesday's 3-1 soccer win over Mary Washington. Jones upped his goal total to 19 with Thursday's hat-trick. He put the Lancers up 1-0 24 minutes into the first half on a beautiful assist from Mike Edge. Nick Ruebel assisted on two second half breakaways as Jones scored easily. Jones is just three goals away from the LC record for goals in a season -22. Mary Washington got on the board with a minute-and-a-half remaining when a Lancer defender inadvertently headed the ball toward his own goal. The goal was the first scored against Longwood at home this season. Goalkeeper Dave Goerke had 18 saves for the home team. "Mary Washington may be the best team we have played," said Posipanko after Thursday's clash. "They played very well, but weren't able to convert their opportunities."

Women's Tennis Longwood's women's tennis team met defeat in its final two matches of the fall season last week as Meredith took a 8-1 win Monday and RandolphMacon held on for 5-4 win Thursday.

Men's Golf The Longwood Men's Golf Team pulled out a 13th place finish in the Ferrum Invitational held this past Monday and Tuesday at the Old Mill Golf Course in Laural Forks, VA. Coach Steve Nelson said that this was the toughest course they have played on so far. Longwood finished with a 371360-731, their worst 36 hole score ever.
