Longwood Election 1988

Study Abroad Now By BURNELLA GILBERT Plans for study abroad opportunities for Longwood students are well underway. Longwood plans to continue for the sixth year its very successful summer study abroad program with the University of Toulouse. Toulouse is located in southwestern France on the banks of the Garonne, one of France's major rivers. The University of Toulouse, with an approximate student body of 10.000, houses a school of social sciences with a comprehensive foreign language program for studies in the humanities and also for business purposes. It also houses a famous school of business and of law. Toulouse has many nearby famous sites of cultural attraction, with one of the most famous being the medieval walled city of Carcassone. This program is tentatively scheduled for June 18 -July 17. 1989. a time when the weather in Toulouse is warm, sunny and very pleasant for touring. Also through the efforts of Dr. Maria Silveira students can spend the spring semester of 1989 at the University of the Andes in Merida.

By SEBASTIAN VOLCKER On November 17 and 18. 1988 the Longwood Students will be called to elect the leaders of 1989. The SGA (Student Government Association) hopes that the Campus will show the same participation the Freshman Class showed earlier this year by having the highest number of voters ever for a freshman election, in recent Longwood history. Bradley Pomp was elected President of the Freshman Class. Kcndal Ascher Vice President. Allen Freeman Treasurer and Vanessa Eades Secretary. This class already showed it's dynamics by setting up a good money making booth this Oktoberfest and by choosing as their advisor the very qualified Director of Student Services Mr. Joseph C. McGill. This year many positions are open, the opportunity Is there for all the Longwood students to run for an office in the major student organizations: the entire SGA board.

the Student Union, the Honor Board, the Judicial Board with it's 22 open seats, the Minority Affairs and I.M. Rec (Intramurals and recreation). All one needs to do, is to pick up a petition in Lankford's information office, fill it in and return it before the 10th of November at the very same Information office. If you have questions just flip open the Student Handbook on page 61 and discover the various offices available. If you need more information ask your friends, your professors, the students in office (there is a group picture of the SGA board and the organization representatives In the Handbook). On the 10th there will be an Interest meeting for the Judicial Board and the Honor Board, the time will be posted soon. If you decide you still find it to difficult to run. don't forget at least to vote on the 17th and 18th of this month and elect your friends and/or the most qualified people for the various Jobs.

Venezuela. The cost of the program. which lasts from January 18 - May 1 is $2999 for Virginia residents and $3892 for non-Virginia residents.

Students may study in India (Rishikesh-Himalayas) and receive credit for 5 courses through the University of Virginia. Information (Continued on page 7)

GALLERY Historical Notes

rfa-W By CHERYL JEFFREY Just as there was a strict dally routine in the 1860s. there was also a strict set of rules made by the president. Students were told to provide their own umbrellas, walking shoes, towels, table napkins, napkin ring, fork and spoon. Parents should not have given their children a large amount of pocket money or expensive gifts. There was a simple style of dress to be followed during school. Parents had to inform the president of their visits. If the student's home was near the school, it was not advisable for them to visit home more than once in three months. This was because students who visited home less often, usually did better in school. Wednesdays and Saturdays from four to five p.m. was the best time to receive calls from gentlemen. Those men who the president did not know, would not be allowed to visit unless there was an authorized letter of Introduction. Letters and packages for the students were to be sent to the president. No packages of food were allowed, except under special circumstances. The president suggested that the parents submit an early

application, because the number of boarding rooms was limited. If there were no rooms available, some students were allowed to live with families near the college. Students were required to follow these rules in order to continue there education at this college. "Annual Register and Announcement of the Farmville Female College. 1859 to 1860."

Students Cure Computer Viruses (CPS) — Some good student detective work found and eliminated some potentially lethal computer "viruses" at two campuses last week. At Baylor University, an unnamed student reported finding the "Scores" virus — which, like most such programs, reproduces itself until It wrecks data and operating systems — In three campus computer systems. At the University of Colorado, student Greg Youngs found that about 85 campus Macintoshes were infected with another type of virus, and then eliminated the virus before telling CU's Computing and Network Services office about it. the Campus Press reported. The CU virus was unusual if only because most such destructive programs are for IBM and IBM-compatible computers. Northwestern University Prof. John Norstad said. "There have been 40 viruses discovered this year in the IBM community, and only three In the Apple community." he said. The Scores virus at Baylor also has infected computers at the universities of Michigan. Florida and Texas this term. Norstad said.

turns out. when Baylor student Ahmad Jilanl got a computer disk In the mall from his brother, who attends Cornell University. Neither Jllani nor his brother knew the disk was infected. Jllani says. Baylor officials and CU's Youngs used new virus detection programs to debug the computers. Many of the debugging programs. Norstad said, "are only three or four months old."

Supporting Our New President

Features Editor Michelle Meehan

Many historians say that there is one basic belief which all Americans have shared throughout the nation's history. It is the belief that they are taking part in a great, unique, stilldeveloping experiment: the creation of freer, more Just society. Economic policies, social progress, foreign affairs, and national security remain important issues for all of us. Decisions must be made wisely for the consequences will affect people in all parts of the world for years to come. This is why it is essential that the United States unite behind President-Elect Bush. Had the outcome been different the same would have been true for a President-Elect Dukakis. Neither man really addressed the important issues facing this country during their campaigns. It could be said and rightly so that elections today are based on Image, not substance. We as a nation must rise above party-lines and support the President, for this country is in deep trouble. Why are we in trouble? The defecit, drugs, and a declining standard of living Just to name a few. We face a world that Includes rapid changes and we must work to insure that these changes reflect progress for our nation and for all people.

APO Fires Back Dear Editor. In response to the letter regarding Alpha Phi Omega in last week's Rotunda: We the Brothers and Pledges of Alpha Phi Omega are very disturbed about the negative attention our fraternity has received. We wish to make it quite clear that all Brothers (active and inactive) are encouraged and given many opportunities to voice their opinions in all meetings and gatherings. We feel that it is unfortunate that personal matters were unnecessarily associated with our fraternity. Robert Taylor has. and will continue, to provide excellent leadership in our fraternity. We are confident that this incident will In no way effect

our continuing mission to promote leadership, friendship and service to the Longwood College Campus. The Brothers and Pledges of Alpha Phi Omega

Dear Editor. I write in response to the letters found in last weeks Rotunda concerning APO and Robert Taylor. My aim Is Iiot to criticize the writer for surely he or she is entitled to his own opinion and felt the need to make it known. However. I feel that person does owe APO an apology. The letter made the active members of APO sound like

an ignorant group of students who are blindly mislead by an Irresponsible executive. I don't feel Robert would be president if he was not doing his Job sufficiently within the group. There is such a thing as impeachment. Nor. do I think that APO should be held liable for what one of Its members does in his/her spare time or outside the organization. As for the writer, of that letter, name withheld. I'd hate to think that you did not pledge APO because of Robert. I would hope that if you wanted in the organization for the organization and its ideals, that you would not have let one person keep you from Joining. Also, if you feel that strongly against Robert why didn't you pledge in order to try and correct what you saw as being wrong. You probably

could've helped APO more from voicing your feelings within the organization rather than from the outside. I think its obvious though that your friendship with the two former APO members that you mentioned swayed your decision just as much as your feelings for Robert Taylor did. For these reasons. I don't think you should hold him responsible for you not pledging. The initial cause for last weeks letter, the writing on the door, was a personal problem between Robert and the two girls — former APO members. It in no way shouldVe Involved APO. Its fine to criticize another student if you have due cause, but to ridicule an organizations president In a public paper only makes the (Continued on Page 5)

A Little Background on The Ironic Fact About The Youth Vote The President Elect By EDMUND A. MATRICARDI in Last Tuesday. Americans chose George Bush to become the 41st President of the United States. Most people know that he has been Ronald Reagan's loyal vice-president for the last eight years and has helped lead America back Into a position of strength and leadership; but what did George Bush do before 1980? What qualifications and experience does this man really have? George Bush was born the son of Connecticut Senator. Prescott Bush. After high school. George went straight into the navy and proceeded to become the youngest fighter pilot In naval history. While flying during World War II In the South Pacific. Bush's plane was shot down. He was the only crew member to survive. After the war. George went home and attended college at Yale. George was very active in school with a high average. He was a member of several organizations including Skull and Bones, which was the most prestigious society on campus and consisted of 10 of the most revered seniors.

Bush's oil company survived many setbacks through George's hard work and dedication. But soon he tired of the oil business and decided to run for a seat in the House of Representatives. He won easily and established himself as a strong Republican and a spokesman for the White House. In 1970. Bush left the House in an ambitious attempt for a hotly contested Senate seat.

chairman. Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and was the Ambassador to China during the historic opening of Democratic relations with now semifriendly Communist China. Bush's life has been a story of ups and downs, but he has always remained on top. Rather than giving up after his business almost collapsed and after the devastating defeat in 1970. Bush has always looked forward; shaken off disappointment; and done better. Bush has experience in leadership and possessing that more than qualifies him to lead America into a postReagan era. From the skies of the South Pacific, to the frontiers of Texas and onto the politics of Washington. George Bush has fought an uphill battle for America.

By JEAN TAYLOR The results from Tuesday's election Is known and for millions of Americans espedaily 18 to 21 years olds, the right of voting was ignored. It's Ironic that few people vote In the U.S.. since over our nations brief history suffrage has been one of the most desperately sought after priviledges. Three amendments and several federal laws have been passed to protect and increase voting. In 1971 congress did

It's true some candidates running for office do little to inspire and sometimes even sould alike but that's when it's up to the voter to make the distinction. Making an Intelligent choice between candidates doesn't mean voting for the one with the best 30 second sound bite on television, it means having an understanding of the major issues then voting for the candidate that you think will have best effect on those issues based on his ideology, competence, and past performance.

Date Rape Safety

By CAROLINE MANKE On Thursday, October 27th at 7:00 p.m. in Jarman auditorium there was a Date Rape Safety program sponsored by Student Services and the greeks. One the panel of the program were: Mr. Richard Blanton, Commonwealth Attorney from Cumberland County; Dr. Bonnie Bronson of the Longwood Counseling Service: Lt. Herbert Nichols of the Richmond Police Department: and Miss Page Anderson, a senior at VCU. Lt. Nichols first assured us that "we are not here tonight to distill any fear in you people: we are here to create more awareness and make you more alert". He then went on to tell us some very disturbing statistics: last year there were 15.037 rapes In the United States, which is one rape every 5 hours, 46 minutes, and 23 seconds: in the past six months there have been 92 rapes In Richmond alone: of all rapes, 60% of the victims know the rapist. These are scary figures. However, it was stated during the course of the evening that there were no reported date rapes at Longwood last year. Mr. Blanton was the next to speak. He told us that date rape is a "prosecutor's nightmare". In most cases, the man says the woman consented while the woman Insists that she was forced. "The elements must be proven beyond a doubt". Blanton said. This makes these cases hard to handle. Dr. Bronson again assured us: "I don't want to instill

panic in Longwood College, but first I want there to be an awareness". She encouraged not only the victims of date rape to find counsel, but those close to the victim, as well. Bronson said that date rape is not Just a problem for women, the victims, but for others close to the victim, including men. Rape of any kind is a devastating experience. She also emphasized the Importance of seeking counsel even if the victim does not report the rape to the police. Miss Anderson then spoke briefly about having dealt with friends who had been date raped. She encouraged victims to at least seek help from friends if not a therapist and/or the police. For the last hour or so the audience was free to ask questions and discuss the issue at hand. Audience participation was good and became very heated at some points. Rape, date or otherwise is a terrible thing. Do not walk around thinking it could never happen to you. It could. This year at Longwood there is a self-defense class on 3rd floor Wheeler MondayWednesday at 8:00 p.m. Also, thanks to the guys on 1st floor Tabb. there is a 24 hour escort service. Take advantage of these services. Don't be a victim.

"One Life to Live" is Doing Campus Search (CPS) — Hoping to ingratiate Itself to some of its most avid viewers, the "One Life To Live" LiveM1tv'show is'lookinifor'a college campus on which to do some on-location production. The ABC "daytime drama" has placed ads in 50 college papers asking students to write and explain why their campus "would be the perfect location" for several episodes featuring "Fraternity Row." the program's "soap within a soap." While Just choosing a campus might have been a more conventional way to select a location, "this was a way to increase college enthusiasm for the show." said Jason Bondeross. the show's spokesman. There was already a large college audience and this was a way to get them more excited about the program. It was fun." "We're very open. The campus has to be in the United States, but it can be big or small, rural or urban." said Bondeross. ABC's research Indicates "many" of "One Life To Lives viewers are college students. Bondeross says. »-j»


The unusual approach to finding a campus site for the show, he added, is "a wonderful opportunity to *** «*&* *** thc coUcgc audience. ABC would use the campus setting to portray the career of a young "actress." following her from modeling assignments to tv commercials to her role in the flc ^°nal Fraternity R°w. Fraternity Row" also provides viewers with a "behindthe-scenes look at daytime television." Bondeross explains. And it also gives campuses a good chance to advertise themselves. "From the numb college presidents, deai ces and individual stud /ho have called in." Bondeross says, "it's been a very effective ad." When the opportunity arises, colleges do compete fiercely to get their names and even buildings included in movies and tv shows. A number of schools campaigned in 1987 to host "A Different World." the Cosby Show splnoff that takes place on a campus.

Spellman College in Atlanta eventually won the chance, but, although many of the the set set designs designs are based of are based n real rooms at ° . Spellman. the show s producers ultimately decided not to use footage of the campus itself.


Challenges is a Good Word Bv KATHY L. MYERS Challenges. That's the main thing that "Patrick Henry" has presented to both the actors and technical people at Longwood. "Patrick Henry" is an original musical by Dr. Patton Lockwood. a theatre professor at Longwood, with music by Ralph Mohr, an assistant professor of music at Longwood. The problems that are encountered with an original script are unlike the common problems normally encountered with a well known script. The people putting "Patrick Henry" together have nothing to go by but the script and the director's visions and ideas. The musical "Patrick Henry" takes place between

1754 and 1799. Therefore, everything in the show has to convey the colonial period. Most of the colonial costumes are being constructed by two ladies in nearby Prospect, while other costume pieces, such as handkerchiefs and accessories/decorations are being prepared by the costume crew at Longwood. As designer of the show. Mr. Moffatt Evans has a challenge of deciphering the script to design a set and a lighting plot that fulfill the needs of the play. Colonial period furniture, such as a chair of the Speaker of the House of Burgesses and a Roundabout Chair for Patrick Henry have to be constructed. The lighting design has to work wlth the desl n of the 6

set to make the scenes effective. With a live orchestra on stage in the wings, the set has also been designed to reflect the sound out to the audience. Perhaps challenge is what educational theatre is all about. Unlike professional theatre, educational theatre gives the students and the faculty opportunities to take risks, to try new things that may not work and to expert ment. The theatre department is wagering that "Patrick Henry" will be another of Longwood's successes. "Patrick Henry" will be performed in Jarman Auditorium on November 16. 17. 18, and 19 at 8:00 p.m. Longwood College students free w,th ID -

Despite being known as a top-notch offensive player, Jones feels no extra pressure to produce. In fact, he feels it makes him play at a higher level.

As the Virginia Intercollegiate Soccer Association Tournament approaches, the Longwood Lancers will be looking to continue performing in the manner which earned them a 15-3-1 regular season record. One of the main reasons for that success has been the play of sophomore forward Ray Jones. A candidate for Division II All-America honors for the second year in a row. Jones has used a quick 1988 start as a springboard to become the Lancers high scorer with 60 points. This comes as no suprise to those people who watch him perform. Constantly looking for ways to score or set up goals, Jones has become known as a threat to put the ball into the opponent's net at any time. After scoring 29 goals as a freshman, he has knocked in 21 this season. His career total of 50 is just one behind the Lancer record of 51 set by Gus Leal. Equally adept at setting up his teammates, Jones is the career leader in assists with 28.

While Jones is considered to be a major offensive threat for Longwood, he was not expected to provide much "punch" when playing back In Bermuda. Jones says he played against players who had more skill and experience than he had. "It was easier to play, because I didn't have to provide everything. Plus, I was taught how to play while on the field." Jones, who began playing soccer at age 10, eventually became accustomed to playing Bermuda's number one sport and landed a spot on the country's National Youth Team, an honor he considers to be his finest. Soon afterward, he learned about Longwood College.

Loss to Spartans: Loses NCAA Bid Longwood could have virtually wrapped up its first trip to the NCAA II Soccer Tournament Saturday, but came up short as visiting UNC Greensboro took a 5-0 win at First Avenue Field. With their NCAA hopes apparently dashed, the 15-3-1 Lancers can concentrate on the Virginia Intercollegiate Soccer Association Playoffs. Longwood. the second place team in the VISA Eastern Division, plays at Western champ RandolphMacon Thursday at 2:30 in the state semi-finals. Eastern winner Mary Washington hosts Shenandoah. Western runner-up. in the other VISA Playoff contest. Winners of the two games will play for the state title Wednesday. November 16. VISA champ in 1982. 1984 and 1986. the Lancers hope they 11 win the title once again in the even-numbered year of 1988. Saturday, eighth ranked Longwood entertained the 16th rated Spartans. 12-7 coming in against a tough schedule. UNCG took advantage of Lancer defensive miscues to score two goals and take a 2-0 edge at the half. With Longwood playing a man down in the second period, the Spartans knocked In three more scores to hand LC Its worst defeat since 1983. The last team to score five goals against Longwood was William & Mary In 1983, also a 5-0 contest. Freshman forward Ed Regan was the Lancer booter ejected against UNCG. Regan, Longwood's second leading scorer, will miss the Randolph-Macon contest also after drawing a red card.

"A friend of mine knew one of the Longwood players at the time (Jeff Robinson), and their fathers talked to each other. They told me about Longwood. and I became interested in playing here," explained Jones, who was named Ail-American. AllVISA. and All-South Atlantic Region as a freshman. Now that Jones is firmly inplanted at Longwood. he is able to look toward future possibilities with the Lancers. The possibility that he is comtemplating currently is that of winning the VISA State Tournament, which begin? Thursday when Longwooc faces Randolph-Macon. "We need to take eacl game in the tournament as c normal game, and stay composed", said Jones. "The midseason loss to Mary Washington will definitely motivate us, because if we beat Randolph-Macon on Thursday, then we might play MWC again. We can't afford to look past Randolph-Macon, however." If Ray Jones has anything to do with it, the Lancers A disappointed Longwood should have a big say in who coach Rich Poslpanko said wins the VISA tournament, as the Spartans took it to his well as others In the future. squad Saturday, but he felt the outcome could have been much closer. "They beat us soundly, but take away our two first half mistakes and Regan's ejection and the game could have been close. It's frustrating to come so near to an NCAA bid, but we have to get back up for the VISA now."
