Longwood Dirt Diggers Survey Site By JEN DOOLEY The Longwood Dirt Diggers" - one of the few phrases in American Society that may be taken literally. The archaeological seat at Longwood is more than a group of undergraduate students who like to play in the mud. To many, archeology is one of those areas that seems like it would be Interesting— es pecially when we are seven year olds. Very few people sustain interest to the college level and actively pursue that interest. Longwood's own James W. Jordan, Ph.D. pro fessor of anthropology, is one of those people, along with a number of students whose passion for dirt-digging greatly outweighs any thoughts of material rewards or recognition for their efforts. Although we rarely hear about it. archeology is thriving in Farmville and surrounding areas solely as a result of the efforts of Dr. Jordan and some dedicated students. On Saturday, February 17. a group of students surveyed

a number of area sites including: a possible graveyard, a building site "of undetermined age or nature", and a creek area, among others. As Dr. Jordan explained, the primary problem with site surveying lies in the availability of sites. Usually. Dr. Jordan will be Informed of a potential site by farmers, game wardens or other private individuals who believe inspection of a particular area may result in discovery of valuable objects of information. The purpose of the site survey on the 17th was to determine whether the above mentioned sites might prove to warrant further investigation by the participants in Dr. Jordan's Summer Field School in archeology. First Introduced in the summer of 1980. the field school gives students from Longwood, as well as from other colleges, the opportunity to conduct professional research in areas never before investigated. Usually thirty to forty students participate in a

two to three week session. The Field School is open to anyone from any major. The group is usually very diverse because it includes people who are interested In the past for a number of different reasons. Dr. Jordan explained that he. personally is interested in what it may have been like to have lived here hundreds of years ago as an Indian (the style of life in the past). When the Field School first began only prehistoric Indian sites were Investigated. Later, as Interests widened, historical sites were also examined. The participants have dug at archaic, woodland and colonial sites, including slave quarters and cemeteries. Dr. Jordan explained that, even after a site has been found, a number of problems still remain. Many of the landowners become suspicious that the archaeologist will try to take anything valuable that they find. Although items of value are extremely scarce, there are measures (Continued on page 5)

To Name Witheld. Your letter In response to Josephine Nikolakakl was quite upsetting at first. Then, upon further reflection and after talking with others. I realized that your letter was insignificant and trivial, but still you must be told. You have missed the point entirely. I think that you must realize the severity of what you said or else you wouldn't have asked for your name to be withheld, but allow me to inform you. Any comparison between Jesse Jackson and the KKK is totally unfounded. I don't even see how you can mention them in the same breath. Why do we have a Miss Black America? Why do we have the United Negro College Fund? Why do we

Kim Bell wear the likeness of Africa on our T-shirts? Why do we have black fraternities and sororities? Why should you care? But in a general response to your questions, it is to make sure that we. as a race, are recognized. It is to promote ourselves for the betterment of our race. You say that you are tired of paying for your ancestors mistakes yet the same mistakes continue today and I am certain that they will continue for awhile. But. we will continue to strive for success and excellence. If you cannot understand this, it is because your narrow-

mindedness prohibits you from understanding and for you I feel nothing but pity. Monica Gilbert

Board Of Visitors Votes To Remain Div. II By JIM WOOD On this day, Friday the twenty-third of February, the word on Longwood's future divisional status will be known. I've come expecting the unfortunate fate: Division III. At 12:45, the seats are nearly empty. Two state paper pushers exchange the numbers and terms that are devoid of humanity. In the hall, good old boys press the flesh. Two come in discussing proam golf and how it relates to raising funds for some William and Mary team. By one o'clock, the meetings scheduled time, the seats are almost filled. Down front are three older ladles.

probably alumnae come to keep tabs on Just who is running their alma mater. They'd better be satisfied; in the class of '29 there aren't many sources of endowments left. Curtain time: Enter Dorrill. First on the agenda is the President's recommendation concerning MCAA Division placement. To my surprise, the good Doctor announces the plan to remain Division II "until further review." A motion is made supporting the recommendation and is carried. Multitudes leave with sighs of relief, but the politically wise instead debate the inevitable. Someday the revenue, the enrollment, and the suffering of quality will come.

News For Students With Stafford Loans A recently enacted statute has made changes to the Federal student financial assistance programs that will directly affect a good portion of the Longwood College student bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; those receiving Stafford Student Loans (formerly Guaranteed Student Loans). The law reads as follows: The proceeds of any Stafford or SLS loan must now be disbursed in two or more installments regardless of the amount of the loan or the length of the period of enrollment for which the loan is made. None of these installments may exceed more than one-half of the loan. The second installment may not be disbursed until at least one-half of the loan period has elapsed or 30 days prior if requested for the beginning of the semester. This law basically means that students who borrow for the entire academic year will receive a check each semester for one-half of their loan, minus fees. The student who borrows for one semester only will still receive two checks (one-half of the loan, minus fees) during that one semester. Some students will see the affects of this statute immediately. We hope this will answer some of the questions you have. The financial aid office has the details on these changes.

30 Year

(Continued from page 1) two-branch system provides "broad participation" in the larger body and "a second body that is small enough to be efficient.' The new governance structure was designed by a special committee that studied and debated for more than a year. The committee's report was the subject of a college-wide forum last March. It was presented to President William F. Dorrill In April, approved by the Organization of Teaching Faculty in May. and endorsed by the Board of Visitors in Jury. Dr. Wells and Dr. Bobbltt are among six faculty members who have served Longwood for 30 years or more. Dr. Wells is a native of Atlanta and a graduate of Agnes Scott College. She

came to Longwood In 1960. two years after completing her master's and PhD degrees at Emory University. Dr. Bobbitt grew up in Roanoke. She received her bachelor's degree from Longwood. her M.S. degree from the University of Tennessee, and her Ph.D. from the University of Maryland. She returned to Longwood in 1954 as a member of the faculty. Other members of the "30 or-more club" at Longwood are Martha H. LeStourgeon (1948). director of the library and associate professor of library science; Dr. James M. Helms (1954), professor of history: Dr. Merry Lewis Allen (1960). associate professor and chair of the department of mathematics and computer science: and Dr. Maurice P. Sneller (1960). professor of history.

College Governing Boards Change By AMY HUDSON As the dust from the opening of state legislatures around the country begins to lift, an unusual number of states find themselves weighing measures to merge and even purge the regents and trustees who run their public colleges. If the separate measures pass, Nebraska, Arizona. Illinois. West Virginia and Iowa will switch around their campus governing boards. There's a fairly high degree of dissatisfaction in the way institutions are governed." observed Barbara Taylor of the Association of Governing Boards in Washington. D.C. No one is quite sure what effect such changes would have on students, or even if the changes are a good idea. "Making structural changes is often the wrong course to take." said Taylor, "but it's fairly natural." Taylor and others worry the bills are the product of legislators' need to come up with a quick fix, a way to show their constituents that the "quality of education" is improving, and a way to try to keep the costs of running state colleges low enough to avoid raising taxes. In Nebraska, for instance, legislators think they can save money by abolishing the two boards that govern the University of Nebraska (NU) and the state colleges. In their places would be seven smaller boards to oversee the three campuses of the University of

Nebraska and the state's four colleges. These boards, in turn, would answer to a new "super" board. At the same time, the proposal helps legislators curry political favor by acting against NU's regents, who aroused anger last year for not revealing why they fired President Ronald Roskens and for failing to state a clear position on whether Kearney State College should merge with NU. A January Lincoln and Journal Star poll found resentment Is still high. Only four of each 10 Nebraskans surveyed approved of the regents' job performance. Meanwhile. Arizona legislators, many of whom think the state's Board of Regents is too powerful, may reduce regents' term from eight to six years. They would also limit regents to one term. "For every state looking at limiting power, there's another state wanting tc consolidate power." Taylor said. In Illinois, the desire to reform campus governance came from a "general feeling that somehow higher education was not being as effective as it could be." explained J. Carroll Moody, chairman of the Faculty Assembly at Northern Illinois University in De Kalb. Moody is on a special panel appointed by the state legislature to figure out what to do. Its findings are expected at the end of February. To Taylor, most of the pro-

posals amount to little more than "armchair wisdom." "You could make a case for all kinds of effects (on students), but I don't know if anyone's ever demonstrated any," Taylor admitted. "However well a university is doing its Job affects students." Moody maintained, "and the governing structure can have a tremendous bearing on how well a university does its job." Perhaps more immediately. "If you have a system where a staff is reporting to a staff ... It certainly has to play a role in increased tuitions." he added. Tuition hikes, set by each campuses' governing board, are what familiarizes most students with their overseers. In New Jersey, for example, Rutgers University students confronted regents Feb. 9 to complain about a prospective 12 percent tuition hike next year. But boards also have the final say in other areas of academic life, including everything from course requirements to control of stu dent fees. In any case, many of the legislative complaints about how campuses are governed are in fact complaints about how campuses are funded. In the Illinois hearings. Moody related. "A great deal of what we heard was not concerns about governance but a lack of adequate funding." State funding of colleges became crucially important

Longwood Overtaken By D. C. Longwood's men's basketball team hit another dreaded second half shooting slump Saturday night In Washington, D.C., allowing homestandlng District of Columbia to rally for a 78-74 victory which wasn't decided until the final seconds. Up 45-40 at halftlme after shooting 57.6 percent (19-33), the Lancers went cold in the second period (10-29. 34-5 percent) and the Firebirds got hot. The contest went back and forth for much of the second half, but UDC took control for good with 3:01 left when Keith Goodie stole the ball and drove downcourt for a layup and a 76-72 lead. Kevin Jefferson, who scored 21 points in the first half and 32 for the night, got a bucket on a goal tend at 1:04 to cut Longwood's deficit to two. 76-74. Following a missed Firebird freethrowand a Greg Holloway rebound. Dale Shavers had a chance to tie but missed a baseline jumper. UDC got a pair of free throws from Darren Darby with eight seconds left to sew up the victory. While both teams came away from the contest with 12-14 records, the Lancers lost their last chance for a winning season. With two games left, both at home. Longwood can still finish at .500 (14-14). North Carolina Greensboro visits Wednesday night at 7:30 and Elon comes calling next Monday (Feb. 26)

in what will be the last home game for seniors Jefferson, Shavers. Doug Poppe and Tony Good. Jefferson Should Overtake Kersey Wednesday Jefferson, with 1,750 career points, needs Just six more to tie Jerome Kersey's all-time career scoring mark of 1.756. He should break the record Wednesday night against UNCG. It appeared the 6-5 forward would get more than enough Saturday night to set the record. The Petersburg native canned 10 of 16 first half shots for 21 points. In the second half, however, he cooled off. making just five of 15 attempts. Jefferson added four rebounds, five assists and two steals. Shavers had another fine all-around game with 13 points, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals and Poppe pulled off a game-high 11 rebounds to go with 12 points. Freshman Rodney Clayton came off the bench to score five points in the first half when Longwood pulled ahead. Plagued by foul trouble (Billy Dunn and Shavers ended the game with four personals and Poppe fouled out late) Longwood was unable to maintain its excellent offensive execution in the second half. District of Columbia was led by 6-3 Junior Henry Moton who poured in 25 points.

Baseball season Opens Longwood opened its 1990 baseball season last weekend In Laurinburg, NC and ended up splitting four games with St. Andrews, a club which was ranked 11th among NAIA teams in preseason rankings. Homeruns by freshmen Mike Tucker. Shawn Jones and Terry Taylor helped the Lancers take an 8-6 win Friday and an 11-6 victory Saturday In eight innings. In a game that was stopped Saturday after three innings tied at

9-9. St. Andrews came out on top Sunday 14-9. The Knights. 35-12 last season, handed Longwood a rare shutout defeat in the second game Sunday 10-0. Longwood. which resumes play Thursday at Mt. Olive, scored seven runs in the first inning of Friday's game as Tucker hit a solo homer and Jones a 3-run blast. It was the first collegiate at-bat for the two freshmen. Tucker, a shortstop, and Jones, who plays left field, had two hits each. Junior Eric Hutzler hit a solo homer for the Lancers in the ninth. Freshman Kyle Weaver, the second of four Lancer pitchers, picked up the win while Dennis Hale got a save after blanking St. Andrews in the eighth and ninth. A 3-run homer by Taylor and a 2-run single by Scott Abell triggered a five-run explosion in the eighth Saturday as Longwood took an 11-6 victory. Taylor, Hutzler and Abell had three hits each in the win. Junior hurler Matt Carlisle picked up the victory in relief of Hale. Tim Patrick started.


Gymnastics Team Collects Another Win

Longwood's gymnastics team rang up Us second best team score ever Sunday in the Towson State Invitational, accumulating a mark of 170.05. The total was Just below the Lancer record of 171.75 which was set at the Virginia State Meet in 1986. "We had a really good meet." said coach Ruth Budd. That's our second highest score ever. Our whole team did well today. Out of all our individual scores that counted only one was below 8.0. We had our best beam set of the year and we got good scores on bars also." Leading the way for Longwood were all-arounds Cindy Shelton (34.6), Danielle Williams (34.6) and Beth Rlsley (34.2). Shelton and Williams tied for 15th out of 35 gymnasts who competed

all-around. The winner was Maureen Lagrua of Bridgeport who had a 37.50. Shelton also had a 9.15 for 12th In floor exercise while Williams had an 8.75 on beam for 20th. Williams' allaround score was her best ever. Towson State won the competition with a 184.65. Also taking part were Temple (182.85). George Washington (178.80). Air Force (173.55), Radford (173.15). Ithaca (172.45). Longwood (170.05). Bridgeport (169.55) and Navy (168.85). Longwood. now 3-10 in wins and losses, hosts James Madison Thursday night at 7:30 In its second home competition of the year. "It will be great to have a home meet again." said Budd. "We've been on the road for

several weeks. Having a home meet with a crowd pulling for us should help. We're looking forward to it." Budd is hoping Junior Natalie Taylor will be able to compete for the first time in two weeks. Taylor, out with a knee injury, won't know unUl later in the week If she'll be able to take part in Thursday's competition.

Lady Lancers Show "True Grit"

By KATHLEEN LELAND True Grit." What a great name for a movie. It's too bad John Wayne already used that title because it would fit the Longwood women's basketball team perfectly. On the road Wednesday night the Lady Lancers came back from a six-point deficit at halftlme to overcome and then overwhelm the Quakers of Guilford College with a final score of 83-67. The game was a .representative sample of the season for the Lady Lancers. Falling to a 6-11 record, the squad has won eight straight to produce a 14-11 mark with one game remaining at Navy next Tuesday. "We played really well the second half," head coach Shirley Duncan said following the game. "We raised our intensity level on defense and created a lot of turnovers and converted them to baskets." Coming back in the second half, the Lady Lancers chipped away at the short lead with Junior guard Ann Callaham scoring the tying basket at 16:18. For the remainder of the game, the Longwood squad dominated the scoring to finish with a safe 16-point margin and its eighth consecutive win of the season. Callaham racked up seven steals on the night to break the record for steals in a season. Callaham has 95 steals so far this season with the old record of 92 set by Brenda Fettrow in 1979-80. "Ann is continuing to play well. She is keeping down her turnover and setting up a lot of shots." Duncan said.
