The Cultural Alliance 

F4M Soon^ 



Many people have heard of the 
Cultural Alliance at Delaware Valley 
College but do not know what it is. 
It is a unique organization with sep- 
arate College funding, organized by 
the following people: Mr. Edward 
Gavin, Miss Karen Orbaker, Mr. 
Robert McClelland, Mr. Stan Sitarski 
and Mrs. Elaine Smith. It's purpose 
is two-fold. First, the Alliance wants 
to develop an awareness of art and 
culture on our campus. Second, it 
hopes to make the outside comm- 
unity aware of the College and to 
look to the College for entertainment 
as well as intellectual stimulation. 
The Alliance hopes to help the 
College become an integral part of 
the community. 

The Alliance is using the library as its 
center. Its activities efficially opened 
on January 27th with an art exhibit 
accompanied by refreshments and a 
jazz band. Each week the Alliance 
will organize a new exhibit utilizing 
the talent of both D.V.C. students 
and professionals. Each exhibit will 
open with a free coffee hour every 
Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. Future 
plans include free concerts and shows 
in the library following the coffee 
hours. The Ailiatice will also sponsor 
free lectures on a wide variety of 
topics. All student, faculty and 
administration members who share 
an interest in cultural affairs are 
encouraged to join. Above all, The 
Cultural Alliance looks forward to 
the interest and support of the stud- 
ents to succeed 

Del. Val. extensive orchid collection was on exhibition for the first two 
weeks of f'ebruary in the Library Exhibit Area. Special thanks to the 
Ornamental Horticulture Society. Exhibits relating to various subjects will 
be on display weekly.

Delaware Valley Exhibits, 
at Philadelphia Flower Show 

The Philadelphia Horticultural Soc- 
iety's Flower and Garden Show is 
fast approaching. The Show opens in 
the Civic Center in Philadelphia on 
March 5 and continues through 
March 12. Hours are 10 A.M. - 
9:30 P.M. weekdays and Saturday, 
10 A.M.- 6 P.M. on Sunday. 

The College's entry in the Educa- 
tional Exhibit competition this year 
is titled "a flower is. . . " The display 
features an exploration of the nature 
of flowers: the different forms of 
flowers, their color, their scent, how 

to propagate flowers, and the en- 
vironmental and chemical factors 
that control flower development. A 
committee of students is working 
diliently with Dr. Mertz, Mr. Cowhig 
and Mr. McClelland to make this 
year's effort even better than last 
year's first-place exhibit. 

Advance-sale adult tickets to the 
Flower Show are available from the 
receptionist Mrs. Martin, Lasker Hall 
first floor, at $2.75 each (as com- 
pared to $3.50 at the door). Why not 
plan to spend an evening at The 
Flower Show and enjoy a preview of 

"Comedy Dance Theatre 
featured on campus" 

On March 3, at 8:00 P.M., the 
Cultural Alliance will sponsor an 
evening with The Bowlin and Fisk- 
Comedy Dance Theatre. Performing 
in Mandell 114, Bowlin and Fisk will 
take a humorous approach toward 
what is usually done quite seriously: 
ballet. We expect a very enjoyable 
evening. Looking ahead to April, 
The Cultural Alliance has already 

arranged for three events on April 7, 
14 and 21. The Pro Musica Brass 
Quintet, Pantomimist Vince Lom- 
bardo and a guitar and flute duo will 
be appearing on our campus for the 
first time. 

The Alliance is still formulating plans 
for other cultural events this semester 
and will advertise accordingly. 

Trying to shutdown the Susquehanna offense are Aggie defenders Phil 
Eisenmann, Bill Stanley and Ken Mitchell. The Aggies went down in 
defense by a score of 88 to 66.

Now that your attention has been 
obtaiined, it is necessary to explain 
the new COLLEGIAN. 

It was felt that after the RAM'S last 
death it was time to try something 
new, the COLLEGIAN. The new 
form is a weekly news sheet put out 
by the students, for the students. 

The paper is open to all who want to 
help, and or contribute. Deadline for 
all material is Monday at 5:00 p.m. 
All articles must, be turned in to the 
Post Mistress no later than this time 
if they are to be included in that 
Friday's issue. Cartoons, club news, 

articles, letters to the editor, and all 
other materials submitted will be re- 
viewed and printed if possible. All 
materials submitted should have the 
author's name and campus address on 
them; this is for your benefit as well 
as the COLLEGIAN'S. As always, if 
you do not wish to have your name 
appear on an article, just say so and it 
will be withheld. 

Advertising will be on a first-come, 
first-served basis, and will appear 
only when the space permits. If 
enough articles are submitted to fill 
the paper, then no ads will appear in 
that issue. 

The staff is hoping for a successful 
paper, but success also depends on 
you, we need your contributions 
and your readership.

Think Green

Growers of indoor plants often are 
uncertain as to what type of artifical 
lighting to use. The main require- 
ment is that it supply light from the 
far red, red, and blue sections of the 
spectrum. There are several brands of 
fluorescent lights manufactured spec- 
ifically for use with indoor plants. 
"Naturescent" and "Gro Lux" are 
two such brands. 

Although these are fine, the use of a 
combination of one cool white fluor- 
escent tube and one warm white tube 

freak injury. "He fell on ?op of a 
knee" Marshall said. "It braised his 
heart. They had to treat it like a 
heart attack." Campbell will be able 
to resume his wrestling career next 

The Aggies had excellent permorm- 
ances from freshman Warren Robert- 
son ((11-2) seven pins), sophomore 
Stan McGlynn (10-2-1), junior Art 
Shull (8-3) and frehsman heavy- 
weight Jeff Bartholomew (5 pins). 

in each fixture is less expensive and 
just as good. There are incandescent 
bulbs made for use with indoor 
plants, but they are not nearly as 
good as the fluorescent tubes. They 
also produce more heat than fluor- 
escent tubes. 

No matter what brand of fluorescent 
lights you use, plants requiring low 
and moderate light levels should be 
grown so that the tops of the plants 
are five to eight inches away from 
the tubes while plants requiring high 
light intensity should be grown with 
the tops two to five inches away. The 
tubes should occasionally be cleaned 
with a damp rag to remove any accu- 
mulated dust, which can reduce light 
output considerably. 

Not only at Del Val, but 

Medford, Mass. (I.P.) - The over-en- 
rollment at Tufts University last fall 
reflected a national increase in appli- 
cations to private colleges and univer- 
sites of five percent and more. (This 
trend contradicted earlier predictions 
that such schools would suffer losses 
due to the mounting costs of higher 
education and chagning goals of 
college-age youths.) 

Michael C. Behnke, dean of under- 
graduate admissions at Tufts, reports 
that the sudden increase in appli- 
cations was regarded with suspicion 
by admissions officers at Tufts and 
other private colleges because their 
information from high school guid- 
ance counselors was that the increase 
did not reflect an increase in the 
applicants, merely an increase in the 
number of applications each pros- 
pective student was submitting. 

Early reports from high school 
sources, Behnke said, also indicated 
that many students were being 
accepted by most of the colleges they 
had applied to. "It now appears that 
there were more applicants in the 
pool, and consequently almost every 
college is either full or over." (Many 
colleges and universities in the 
Boston area had over-enrollments 
similar to Tufts'.) 

According to Behnke, the overall in- 
crease in applications to private 
schools could be attributed to an end 
to the anti-careerism of the 1960s. 
Today's students, Behnke said, are 
more interested in careers and con- 
sider private colleges the best pre- 
paration. He also said urban univer- 
sities still seem to be favorites among 
entering students.

FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1978 


Did you miss New Year's Eve? Well, 
come ring in the new year on Satur- 
day, March 11, 1978 at Delaware 
Valley College. We'll be counting 
down the last minutes of the year 
starting at 9:00 P.M. in the Rudley- 
Newmann Gymnasium. The New 
Year's celebration will feature 

So if you missed New Year's Eve 
1977, don't miss New Year's Eve, 
March 11,1978. 

Sponsored by Delaware Valley 
College Student Government. 

Delaware Valley College is located on 
Route 202, one mile west of Doyles- 
town. Pa. 

Admission $.50 with D.V.C. I.D. - 
$1.50 otherwisa. 




The Delaware Valley College 
Founders' Day Convocation will be 
held on Thursday, March 16th at 
3:30 P.M. in the Rudley-Neumann 

The Annual Founders' Day Program 
will be presided by Larry A. Middle- 
ton '64, Chairman of the Board of 

The Founders' Day Address will be 
presented by Mrs. Madeleine Kraus- 
kopf Hillman, daughter of the first 

The program will honor Dr. Joseph 
Krauskopf, founder of the National 
Farm School and Dr. James Work, 
founder of the College. 

A highlight of this year's Founders' 
Day Program will be "The History of 
the College Exhibit" which will be 
assembled in the Lobby of the )ames 
Work Gymnasium for Thursday's 
Ceremony. The exhibit features 
memorabilia of Dr. James Work's 
varied career as well as artifacts and 
photographs of the College's transit- 
ion from Krauskopf's visit with 
Tolstoy in 1894 to the College's 
current status. 


Beginning with the 1978-79 academic 
year, the linen service which is pro- 
vided by the College will no longer be 
mandatory. All resident students 
are now required to sign up for the 
service which entitles them to an ex- 
change of linens on a weekly basis. 
The cost of the service this year was 
$32.00 and it was included on the 
invoice sent by the College to all res- 
ident students. 

Next year this fee will not be in- 
cluded in the charges for resident 
students. Mary Macintosh, the 
College Linen supplier, will send 
student contracts and a letter ex- 
plaining the new system to all resid- 
ents this summer. Payments for the 
service will be made directly to Mary 

Unfortunately, since the linen service 
will be optional and the volume will 
be somewhat decreased, the cost of 
the service will be slightly increased. 
The new charge will be $37.00 for a 
full year or $20.00 for one semester. 

The Office of the Dean of Students 
recommends that students subscribe 
to the linen service. In addition to 
being very convenient, it is still a 
relatively inexpensive service for the 
entire academic year. 

Memorabilia or maybe Just history, 
which ever, it's Delaware Valley 
College as it was. From the past to 
the present was on display in the 
library for the past week.

These 28 important individuals are 
the Resident Assistants who are re- 
sponsible for helping to develop and 
maintain our residence hall life pro- 

The residence hall staff has improved 
immensely since last year. The resid- 
ent assistants have devoted hours of 
their time helping to encourage cam- 
pus life at Delawaie Valley College. 
The Resident Assistants have spon- 
sored many activities in their resi- 
dence halls; some of these programs 
are movies, relay races & obstacle 
course, can recycling, macrame de- 
monstrations, auto mechanics de- 
monstration, Christmas Social, Hallo- 
ween haunted hall, street hockey 
tournament, two-on-two basketball, 
shooting contest, dunking contest, 
CPR demonstration. 

Superstars Weekend will soon be here 
(April 22 & 23); thanks to our Res- 
ident Assistant Staff it will be more 
successful than last year! We have 
noticed that the Resident Assistants 
are becoming quite proficient as peer 
"counselors", at doing paper work, 
and merely holding down the fort! 

The Resident Assistants have been in- 
volved in many awareness sessions 
which are an integral part of their 
on-going training program. The topics 
of discussion included Recognition & 
Symptoms of Drug Usage, Human 
Sexuality (including birth control), 
Homosexuality, Assertiveness Train- 
ing, Listening Skills & Value Clarif- 
ication Techniques. 

The Resident Assistants Executive 
Committee (RAEC) and the housing 
directors are beginning the selection 
process for the "new" resident assist- 
ant Staff for the 1978-79 academic 
year. The Executive Committee will 
be conducting the initial interview. 
Miss Orbaker & Mr. Sitarski will 
follow with the final interview; 
RAEC's recommendations will also 
be considered in the final decision. 
On March 15, the staff pre-selectlon 
will be announced. An obje(ftive 
training session will be held April 6 
for the pre-selected staff. We are also 
oiianizing an "On the Job Training" 
weekend; this will be organized in 
conjunction with the pre-selected 
staff and our present Resident Assist- 
ant Staff. The 1978-79 Resident 
Assistant Staff will be announced 
April 13. April 18 will host another 
training session including a dinner 
hour together.

It was a dance; it was a casino night, 
it was for fun, it was the Friends of 
Football Winter Weekend 78. 

The weekend started on Friday night, 
but this was no ordinary Friday as a 
dance frolicked in the dining hall. 
The dance featured Whale and every- 
one danced up a storm. 

Even though the dance was on Fri- 
day, the big event was Saturday night 
when the gymnasium was turned into 
Las Vegas II. Card sharks and Rat 
Racers alike turned out for this event. 
Equipment was rented to make this 
as real as possible and the only thing 
out of place was the play money. 

The game most played was the Rat 
Race. It was an interesting last heat 
that pitted Coach Marshall* against 
Or. Brubaker^ (*rats names). Coming 
up in first place was Coach Marshall. 
Dr. Brubaker* lost (and they were his 
rats). Also Dr. Brubaker was the only 
person bitten by a rat all night). 

At the end of the evening an auction 
was held. Articles were for sale and 
the top selling prize was a television 
set going for $80,000.00. Another 
article, an old football warm up, 
went for $35,000.00. 

It was as Coach Wilson said "a week- 
end to have a good time." The first 
in what he hopes to be an annual

The Delaware Valley College 
Founders' Day Convocation was 
held on Thursday, March 16th, 
1978 at 3:30 P.M. in the 
Rudley-Neumann Gymnasium. 
The Founders' Day Address was 
presented by Mrs. Madeleine 
Krauskopf Hillman, daugher of 
the first founder. Dr. Joseph 

In her address Mrs. Hillman re- 
ferred to her father's efforts in 
founding the school when she 
said, "The National Farm School 
was my father's dream, his 
pride and joy and he founded it 
after careful and soul searching 
deliberations and after a visit 
with the famous Russian author, 
Count Leo Tolstoy. 
She made note that throughout 
the history of the College, two 
individuals were almost entirely 
responsible for the leadership, 
development and progress of the 
College. She stated that "Dr. 
Work was truly the founder of 
the College in 1946 as my father 
was the founder of the National 
Farm School fifty years earlier 
in 1896. 

Mrs. Hillman expanded on the 
accomplishments of Dr. Work 
and offered personal recollect- 
ions of the College's founder 
when she recalled "Many of you 
may remember Dr. Work as a 

stern administrator. I and many 
of his close friends remember 
him as an extremely compass- 
ionate and sensitive person. He 
was shy and somewhat reserved 
with an exceptional keen mind 
and a wonderful sense of humor. 
The twinkle in his eyes and his 
warm smile will always be re- 
membered by those who were 
fortunate enough to know him. 
Dr. Work liked to tease and also 
to promote serious discussions. 
He was extremely zealous and 
thrifty when it came to the 
operation of the College. He was 
however, exceptionally kind and 
helpful. He personally helped, 
with his own finances, many 
students to pursue a college 
education. Dr. Work loved the 
students and was always con- 
cerned with their welfare. The 
older alumni may remember him 
best, for they knew him best." 
Following her review of the 
history of the College, Mrs. Hill- 
man brought the audience to the 
present and looked toward the 
future referring to today's 
leadership under the direction of 
Dr. Feldstein, President, and 
Mrs. James Work, Vice-President 
of the College. 

Mrs. Hillman concluded her pre- 
sentation with a quote from Dr. 
Feldstein 's inaugural address^.

Steve McKrancy, President of 
Student Government reported to 
the Board of Trustees on Thurs- 
day, March 16th. 

On March 16, 1978, I attended 
the Board of Trustees Meeting 
which was held in the Shapiro 
Wing of the Library. The nneet- 
ing went very well with much 
promise for the future. 
My report contained many of 
our accomplishments since Sept- 
ember in which they were very 
impressed. I also reported and 
explained the Student Govern- 
ment Proposals to the Admin- 
istration. The main proposal 
which I talked about was the 
proposal for a 21 -Club. 
The Board listened very inten- 
sely and seriously to the pro- 
posal. I asked them to give great 
thought and consideration to 
this proposal between now and 
the next Board Meeting which 
will be held during the A-Day 
weekend. At that meeting, I plan 
to answer questions on any part 
of the proposal and work out 
problems that might arise. In my 
eyes, we are going in the right 
direction, and leaving signs for a 
greater tomorrow. 
As you know, my Presidency 
will be over on April 1 7. Before 
that time you must seek and 
elect a new President of Student 
Government. Serious thought by 
everyone must be taken in order 
to find the right person for the 
job. Besides the President, you 
must also elect the other officers 
and members of Student 
Government. If anyone is inter- 
ested in running for a position 
on Student Government, please 
contact the Dean of Students 
Office for deadlines and pet- 
itions, and qualification for the 
various positions. Petitions for 
Student Government Officers 
must be in by Friday, March 31,

A Senior 

An open letter to Delaware 
Valley College. 

In a few weeks I will be one of 
the many -seniors graduating 
from D.V.C. I woMid like to take 
this opportunity to thank every- 
one responsible for giving me 
four fine years. I am grateful to 
all the faculty and staff who 
worked so hard in giving me the 
best education possible. Each of 
you went the extra mile if I 
needed special help, or when I 
had papers or projects to com- 
plete, or just when I needed to 
talk to someone. You all showed 
genuine interest in me as a 
student - not as some impersonal 
number. You knew me, and I 
knew you, and this made my 
education that much more 
meaningful. You were concerned 
if I performed poorly; you were 
pleased if I did well. You 
listened patiently while I spoke 
of my dreams and hopes, and 
you helped guide me toward 

You were more than just 
educators; you were my friends. 
We talked after class, between 
class and any other time we had 
something to say. There were 
times, I'm sure, when you would 
really want to do something 
else - but you spent time with 
me if I needed it. 

I, like many other students, 
complained about things I didn't 
like, but as I look back the good 
far outweigh the bad. I realize 
that you were acting in my best 
interests - even if I didn't think 
so at the time. 

Well, I guess it is time to bid you 
farewell. Good-bye D.V.C, I'll 
miss you - you were a good 

A grateful senior 

Silent Movies 

"When Comedy was King" is a 
common term used to refer to the 
Silent Movie Era. Call it slapstick 
or anything else, this was when 
funny was funny. Since there was 
no sound, the actors couldn't 
depend on the dialogue to get 
laughs. They had to do it with 
their facial expressions, bodily 
movements and situations. Each 
had his own personal charact- 
eristics that got laughs. Charlie 
Chaplin had a distinctive walk 
and dress. Buster Keaton was 
noted for his acrobatics and a face 
that never showed any emotion. 

Todays television shows and 
movies all owe their origin to the 
initial success of the silent movies. 
They were pioneers in a new field. 
Many of them continued to be 
popular in the talkies, such as 
the Little Rascals and Laurel and 
Hardy. Today, many of these 
stars and their movies are consid- 
ered "classics", a term denoting 
distinction of excellence. 

On April 5, DVC paid tribute to 
the silent kings by presenting 
Charlie Chaplin and Friends, a 
night at the silent movies. 

All the old time greats. Laurel and 
Hardy, The Little Rascals, The 
Keystone Cops, Harold Lloyd, 
Buster Keaton, Fatty Arbuckle 
and Charlie Chaplin were high- 
lighted. Included among the 
shorts was Chaplins famous classic 
The Tramp and Cops where 
Buster Keaton lead the Keystone 
Cops on a wild chase.

Baseball Aggie Style 

Senior Special Problems 

The Delaware Valley College base- 
ball team, hot from their Spring 
Florida trip, didn't cool down 
much Saturday versus Fairleigh 
Dickinson. Zisk and Helmstetter's 
bats were sizzling. John hit two 
shots and Dennis added a home- 
run and a triple. The Aggies 
scored 24 riins and completely 
outclassed the Devils from 

Although tfie Aggies are young, 
(only Helmstetter and Butler are 
seniors) the team is fairly exper- 
ienced. Bob Reapsome holds 
down first base and he is hopeful 
his hitting improves this season. 
Steve Cash, a Floridian second 
baseman, starts and should add 
some quickness to the Aggie 
attack. Butler and Sophomore 
third baseman Mark Skelding hold 
down the right side of the infield. 
Zisk, freshmen Phil Boob and 
John Stark round out the outfield 
All three have good speed and 
should combine for an average of 
over three hundred. Dennis Helm- 
stetter adds a wealth of exper- 
ience behind the plate and should 

hit in the high three hundreds. 

Other players who will add depth 
to the Aggies squad are J im Dun- 
bar, Greg Lacava, John Lewis and 
George Richdale. 

Although the mound staff is 
young, many of the freshmen 
entered school with impressive 
credentials. Jim Gordon, Ed 
Vrbanic, Jeff Thiebault and Steve 
Wyrenski are all freshmen who 
will all get game experience with 
the eleven double-headers on the 
schedule. John Zisk, Steve 
Fornoff and John Lund add upper 
class experience to the staff. 

Third year coach John Hardy 
expects the Aggies to be an ex- 
citing baseball team this year. 
Within the fairly short confines 
of Aggie Field the bats should 
smoke with power hitters like 
Zisk, Helmstetter and Butler. 
Come see your Aggie Squad play 
an exciting brand of baseball on 
your way to and from class. 
Cheer these guys on and lets bring 
an MAC Championship to Dela- 
ware Valley! 

25Yearsof Rock & Roll 

PHILADELPHIA - For the frrst

Student Role in Education 

There are two ways to get an 
education in the U.S. today, 
which can be compared to ihe 
differences between sailing and 
motorboating. A sailor is re- 
quired to put skill and effort 
against the wind, and often has 
to force his way into the wind in 
order to reach his goal. The 
skipper of a power vessel, how- 
ever, is able to speed directly 
towards his goal on his own 
terms. So too, students at some 
institutions are masters of their 
own fate, actively taking part in 
the direction of the education 
which costs them so much. 
Other students seem to get their 
education in spite of the best 
efforts of administration and 
faculty. Even when the 
education is of the desired 
quality, the undergrad is forced 
to trust that the situation will 
not change during his college 
career; he has no acceptable 
recourse to guarantee his sat- 


One of the important tools the 

first student has in his quest 
for truly "higher" education is 
the opportunity to influence the 
quality of his educators. While 
an educator may be very able in 
his field, this is not an indication 
of the ability to pass this know- 
ledge along, or of the ability to 
maintain a satisfactory personal 
relationship with the student. 
Yet this assumption forms the 
major foundation of most colle- 
giate hiring practices. 

The importance of faculty eval- 
uation by both colleagues and 
the administration can't be over- 
looked; however, there is little 
point in marketing what the con- 
sumer doesn't want to buy. Most 
businesses would not go far 
without surveys to determine 
what products have consumer 
acceptability. The student is the 
purchaser of a product which 
represents a huge economic in- 
vestment and should be entitled 
to produce meaningful and 
effective feedback to the same 
extent that the buyer of any 
other product is entitled. 

The Faculty Research Comm- 
ittee is urging the incoming 
seniors, and particularly those 
interested in graduate studies to

Your help is desired to help with 
programing. If you have a 
faculty member you want inter- 
viewed or another special pro- 
gram you want to hear, contact 
a WAPO member. One example 
of special programing is the 
broadcast of chemistry help 
sessions before exams. There is a 
need for more Dj's, and meet- 
ings are held the 3rd Wednesday 
of every month. 

WAPO is trying to build up its 
record collection; therefore, if 
you have a request, dial 235 on 
the intracampus telephone line. 

The evidence indicates that the 
student must be the single most 
important factor in the examin- 
ation of faculty effectiveness. 
Only the student has the back- 
ground of constant exposure for 
extended periods to the inst- 
ructor's methods. In conclusion 
it can be seen that the student 
has the ability, information and 
the need to evaluate his inst- 
ructors and at the same time the 
instructor has the need to be 
evaluated for both pragmatic 
reasons, and aesthetic reasons 
associated with pride in a job 
well done.

FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1978 

"Ralph" triumphantly returns to Delaware Valley for another spectacular dance/concert on Friday, April 14th. The big event is 
scheduled to begin at 9:00 P.M. and continue to 1 :00 A.M. in the Rudley-Neumann Gymnasium. Admission will be $.50 for the Class 
of 79 members, $ 1 .00 for D.V.C. students and $2.00 for others. 

"Ralph" appeared at last year's A-Day dance to a crowd of at least 500, one of the best attended mixers of the year. 
The band consists of ten skilled musicians with one super sound. They are vibrant, multi-talented and an absolutely incredible group of 
performers who know their music and know how to please their audience. They bridge the gap between classical and contemporary in 
stride and still leave their audience totally satisfied. The group finished its rock performance with an unforgettable version of Tchaikov- 
sky's "1812 Overture." 

Anyone who was fortunate enough to witness "Ralph" last year knows they are simply fantastic; it was just about the social event of 
the year on campus! This year, find out for yourself!! 

Financial Aid 



Any student who has applied for 
or intends to apply for financial 
aid consideration for the 1978- 
79 academic year MUST have 
the Financial Aid Form (FAF) 
AND a copy of the 1977 income 
tax statement into the Student 
Financial Aid Office on or 
before May 18th. You will place 
your eligibility in serious jeop- 
ardy unless these forms are re- 

There is a scholarship (LOEB 
Foundation) available for stud- 
ents with the following qualif- 
ications: of Jewish descent, in 
need of financial assistance and 
studying in the field of Agricult- 
ure. Students may contact Mr. 
Sauer for further information. 




On Monday, April 24, 1978 at 
3:00 p.m. a meeting of all grad- 
uating seniors will be held in the 
James -Work Gymnasium. The 
meeting will be conducted by 
Mr. Tasker and attendance is 
mandatory for all seniors who 
will be participating in Comm- 
encement Exercises. 

Graduation packets, which in- 
clude such items as check-out 
forms, graduation announce- 
ments and invitations, placement 
materials, etc. will be distributed 
during this time period. The de- 
tails of rehearsal and graduation 
will be discussed, so it is import - 
ant that all graduating seniors be 
in attendance. 

The Director of Alumni Affairs, 
Mr. Henry Sumner, will be giving 
a brief presentation on alumni 
activities to members of the 
Class of 1978. It should also be 
noted that time will be allotted 
at the end of the meeting to take 
care of last minute details for 
the senior trips to either Free- 
port or the Catskills.

Planning for 

1979 Flower 

Now that another successful 
Philadelphia Flower and Garden 
Show exhibit has been put to 
rest, a committee of students 
and faculty members are begin- 
ning to plan ahead for the 1979 
Show. The first task facing the 
group is to sort through pot- 
ential ideas for the 1979 exhibit 
theme. After selecting a theme 
the group will settle down to 
plan the numerous efforts that 
go in to putting together an 
attractive and educational ex- 

Among the ideas being con- 
sidered for the 1979 exhibit are 
plant pests, commercial floral 
production, turf and lawn care, 
pruning and trimming, foliage 
plants and city gardening. The 
Flower Show Committee meets 
at intervals on Tuesday after- 
noon and participation by any 
student or faculty member or 
staff member is more than wel- 
come. It's a great chance to 
apply your skills in graphics, 
construction, rearing plant 
material, or public relations. 
Interested? Contact Dr. Mertz 
(Ag. BIdg. 121, Ext. 334). 


By Steve Silbersteln 
Many amateur growers of indoor 
plants hesitate to enter their 
plants in flower shows. A 
common misconception is that 
plants must be large or old. 
However, size is not of major 
importance to flower show 

The important thing is that the 
plant be in a vigorous and 
healthy condition, but it must 
be free of insects and disease. 
All diseased, blemished and dis- 
torted leaves and flowers should 
be removf;d from it. Sometimes 
slightly damaged leaves can be 
carefully trimmed so as to 
appear undamaged. 

The shape of the plant should be 
symmetrical unless purposely 
grown otherwise. Flowers (if 
any) should be distributed over 
the plant so that the overall 
effect is balanced. Unless pur- 
posely grown otherwise, the 
plant should be potted symmet- 
rically. The size of the pot 
should be in good proportion 
to the plant, and both plant and 
pot should be aesthetically pleas- 
ing together. 

Unfortunately, some judges tend 
to favor clay pots over plastic 
but do not let that discourage 
you. Plastic pots can be quite 
respectable. Remember, the 
worst that can happen is that 
you don't win a ribbon! 







Dear Editor: 


Once again I am glad to see that 
DVC is showing concern and re- 
spect for a very few people while 
ignoring the basic convenience 
(5f the greater majority. I am, of 
course, talking about the new 
time schedule which was in- 
stituted on campus. It was not 
bad enou^ that every building 
and classroom have different 
times. I find myself leaving 10 
minutes early in the AG building 
and showing up 10 minutes late 
in Mandell when actually only 
four minutes have passed be- 
tween the two. This is a very 
surprising physical phenomenon 
in that Einstein's Theory of 
Relativity does not apply in this 

I realize that it is difficult to 
find a person qualified enough 
to unify the time zones on cam- 
pus. So - - 1 propose that an inter 
campus time line be instituted 
running from the corner of Work 
Hall, between the Ag building 
and Mandell and back around 
the Ag building right down 
through the middle of Segal Hall 
only to circle around those 110 
people who miss thei? lunch. . .. 
because there isn't enough time 
for them to munch their lunch. 
In this way, we could conceiva- 
bly allow them to eat and still 
leave the rest of us on a regular 
time schedule. 

(Students Hating Inadequate 
Time Zones) 

To the Editor: 

It behooves me to call your 
attention to the fact that there 
are several time zones that we 
students at Del Val must en- 
counter each day. To give us a 
small insight to the problem, I 
will take you on a small tour of 
the campus on our infamous gar- 
den tractor known as the "M". 

To begin with, we will proceed 
south on Route 202 and turn on 
our AM radio to discover that 
the exact time is 8:20 . . . well 
within the limits in order to be 
on time for our first class. We 
now enter the south entrance 
of DVC, passing Security Head- 
quarters, and notice that the 
time is now 8:27 am (by their 
clock). We now ride the "M" 
northward, up past the dorms 
and our illustrious dining hall to 
Segal Hall where we find, after 
5 minutes have elapsed, that it is 
now 8:15??! We sit down and 
have our morning cup of coffee 
until, by Segal Hall time, it is 
8:26. We then proceed to walk 
across campus to our first class 
of the day which is located in 
Mandell Hall. Upon arrival, we 
discover that class has been in 
session for at least 15 minutes, 
and we have received a cut for 
our tardiness. 

We patiently endure the remain- 
der of the class period, and the 
time is now 9:45. We leisurely 
stroll to Lasker Hall to see i pro- 
fessor about a project due in the 
next two weeks. With 5 minutes 
having lapsed, we then proceed 
to the Ag building only to find 
that we are 20 minutes early for 
class. Class finally begins and, 
upon its completion, we proceed 

on the 3'/2 (conservative esti- 
mate) minute walk to the library 
We spend 15 minutes in the lib- 
rary and then proceed to Segal 
Hall for lunch. We sit down, 
masticate our food properly, and 
begin the long walk to Allman 
Hall (about 4 minutes) to see a 
high ranking school official. 
Upon arriving, we find that we 
are 20 minutes early for our 
appointment, but that is the 
least of our worries, as this high- 
ranking school . official is 20 
minutes late coming back from 

We now stroll leisurely over to 
Mandell Hall for our last class of 
the day which begins at 1:35. 
Upon entering Mandell once 
a^in, we find that classes have 
been in session for over 20 
minutes. During this period we 
were to have taken a test, but, 
due to our tardiness, and the 
time zone difference, we will not 
be allowed admittance by the 
prof. Throwing our arms up in 
the air in unison, we then walk 
back to Segal Hall, hop back on 
the "M", and proceed to the 
parking lot somewhere in the 
outer reaches of New Britain in 
order to find our car. 

This, my furry friends, is an 
example of probably the simp- 
lest in any one of the many daily 
schedules to be found in the hot 
little hands of the students at 
Del Val.

Robert Gabel, a Sophomore Bio-

cord in the mile run during a 
track meet against Widener Col- 
lege on Wednesday, April 5, 
1978. Bob's time of 4:25.93 
broke the old College standard 
set by Lou Coppens, Class of 65, 
when he ran the mile event 
against Millersville in 4:26.4 on 
April 20, 1965. 

Gabel also won the 880 with a 
time of 2:03.3. 

75 Runs in 8 Games 

The Aggie Baseball Squad is currently 4-0 in the league and 6-2 
overall. Delaware Valley has taken doubleheaders from Fairleigh 
Dickinson, Drew and Albright; their only losses came when they 
dropped a twin bill to Ursinus College both by a 2-1 margin. 

The Aggie hurlers have pitched fine baseball. Third year coach 
John Hardy has received fine pitching from John Zisk 2-0, Steve 
Fornoff 2-0, Craig Thiebolt 1-0 and two freshmen Ed Urbanic 
and Jim Gordon. In the next six games the Aggies face the meat 
of their schedule when they play Scranton, Wilkes and Upsala all 
in home doubleheaders. 

Along with good pitching the team has hit the ball well. In the 
first eight games Delaware Valley has recorded 74 hits in 218 
trips to the plate for a team average .339. In their eight games the 
Aggies have scored 75 runs and limited their apponent to only 18. 
The big sticks for Del Val have been John Zisk .540, Dennis 
Helmstetter, Phil Butler, Greg Lacava and Jim Dunbar all batting 
well over 300. 

The defense has improved drastically. At this early point in the 
season the Aggies are averaging only one error a game.

FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 1978 


Early this semester, I reported the accomplishments of Student Government from the Fall Semester. 

It was a semester full of hard work and progress. I am pleased to announce that we have kept that same momentum this spring 
which helped us accomplish many projects. 

The following is a summary of the accomplishments of the 1977-78 Academic year: 

Fall Semester 

New Pool Room and system to run it 

Return of a money-making Game Room 

Financial help to dormitories for Programming 

Initial start of Landscaping School Sign 

Cooperative work from A. P.O. to Student Government 

Laundry Room - located in Ulman 

Unloading lots by Cooke and Barness 

Extended hours of Snack Bar 

Acquiring of School Signs on 61 1 By-Pass 

Promotion of Christmas Spirit, Contest and Activity 

A large increase in various Student Activities 

Open communication through logo, meetings, new 

bulletins, better advertising 

Student Government Office 

All Student Government equipment has been inventoried 

and made available to every student with permission 

Spring Semester 

• Accepted Proposal to extend Library hours, which took 
effectjanuary 29, 1978 

Accepted Proposal to grant academic credit to nfiembers 
of the Student Government which is retroactive from 
September 1, 1977 

Completion of Landscaping School Sign 
Accepted Proposal to Amend the Constitution 
A even larger increase in Social Activities 
Financial help to promote and help Super-Stars Weekend 
Proposal for a 21 -Club on Campus (will be carried over 
into next year) 

Special Committee for Co-ed Dormitories 
Proposal for an increase in the Student Goverment Budget 
Approval of a New School Newspaper (Delaware Valley 
College Collegian) 

Proposal to increase lounge space and study areas In Dorm- 

Accepted Proposal to establish a system whereby the 
College, a department, or any recognized college organ!- 
ization be authorized to issue passes to prospective 
students of the College to allow their entrance into social 

Accepted proposal to urge the Board of Trustee's and 
Administration to consider renovations of the Student 
Center as a major priority 

In summary, we have worked on and completed 27 major projects including 7 proposals accepted by the Administration and 1 still 
to be accepted. Besides these accomplishments, we have resolved many problems that occur from day to day. It is clearly evident 
that the 77-78 Student Government meant business and that is exactly what we did. 

I hope next year's Student Government does even more and retains the momentum that we have had.

Express Yourself 

Ask yourself why should you 

The answer is very simple. The 
Collegian is what you are. If 
you do not care thenAve will not 
have a school newspaper next 
year. At this time it is necessary 
to train a staff for next year, we 
need editors, reporters and a 
treasurer. If you ever wanted to 

get involved but were afraid to, 
now is the time. 

There will be a meeting on Mon- 
day, the 24th at 4:20 p.m. in 
the placement office (Bird Gage) 
for anyone who is interested. 

The Collegian is what students 
make it, controversial, funny or 
nothing. Get involved!! 

Senior Special 

The presentation of the Senior Special Problems projects will take 
place on Wednesday, April 26 at 4:15 p.m. in Mandell Hall, 
Room 216. Dr. James Miller will be the moderator. The follow- 
ing Seniors will be presenting papers: 

1. Brian Strohmeier. "Reactions of para-substituted 
amines with m-bromis (cyclopentadienyl dicarbonyl- 
iron (II)] 

2. Joanne Trauth. "Cellulose decomposing bacteria in soil.

To the Editor: 


I am greatly pleased to see the 
rapid response to my previous 
letter. (Friday April 14, 1978; 
Vol. XI, no. 5). A qualified 
person took it upon himself to 
try and unify the time zones on 
campus. Unfortunately, though 
this person's intentions were 
probably good, it is not quite 
what I had in mind. I agree that 
no time at all is a means of 
unifying time, but stealing . . . 
no, removing the clock from 
Segal Hall just doesn't cut it. 

This letter is more or less a plea 
to the individual who removed 
our stunning, slightly used, in- 
accurate time piece, to please 
return it to it's original place 
above the rather ugly, boarded 
up fireplace in our beloved 
Segal Hall. 

Being an optimist, I believe that 
you (the conscience thief) are in 
reality having the inner workings 
of the clock repaired as a further 
effort to rectify the time prob- 
lem on campus. 

Again, I would like to ask that 
the clock be returned as it's 
absence does not really help our 

Students hating inadequate time 

Student Roll in 

P.S. Where are you 
Cameron Swazy? 

To the Editor: 



I, too, am pleased to see the sud- 
den effort to unity the time 
zones on campus. At least there 
are a few individuals who have 
some interest in intracampus 
affairs. But, unlike the previous 
writer, I fail to see how this pre- 
sent situation could possibly all- 
eviate the ever-present existance 
of the natural time zones which 
are found exclusively on this 
campus. It seems to me that this 

would only allow a type of 
chaos even more rempant than 
that which is already present on 
our fair campus. 

Come with me, if you will, and 
lean out of the window in the 
radio station which overlooks 
this stunning sight. Peer directly 
through the ginko trees to the 
far side of the ground upon 
which we spend so much of our 
time being "educated". Notice 
if you will, the haphazard rambl- 
ings of the professors back and 
forth between classes. This has 
not been unplanned!! It is a de- 
finite effort by the administrat- 
ion to undermine those assoc- 
iated with the college. If we turn 
our gaze out into the real world, 
where some people (who are 
omniscient) tell us that the rest 
of the world is in a frenzy, we 
will notice that the chaotic 
world outside has at least some 
kind of hourly order on which 
to base their daily activities. 
Then, looking back on campus, 
we see the professors as well as 
the students, trying desparately 
to sort out what they should be 
doing when and constantly 
asking each other what time it is, 
when, in actuality, nobody 
knows. This is normal??? And I 
thought that we were supposed 
to be learning some type of 
organizational procedures on 
which to base our future lives!! 

Returning to the problem at 
hand, I disagree that returning 
the clock back to it's former 
benevolent status would return 
everything to normal. What good 
is one clock on campus that has 
an approximate correct time 
when the rest of the campus. . . 
indeed the rest of the world!! . . 
is on a totally different time 
standard than Segal Hall itself.

ising Moral Beliefs!!

How is a professional evaluation 
program constructed? What 
factors should be evaluated? Are 
students qualified to make these 
judgments? These are just a few 
of the questions which crop up 
in discussing a workable plan to 
accomplish the goals of faculty 

The principles on which the 
effectiveness of an evaluation 
program is based must be trusted 
universally or as nearly so as 
possible. The entire college 
community needs assurance that 
the evaluation will be taken 
seriously, remain confidential, 
be properly interpreted, and will 
yield appreciable results. If this 
is not the case, if the procedure 
becomes a pointless farce, the 
evaluations received will be use- 
less since the student will have 
no reason to put any thought or 
effort into his appraisal. The 
student may even fear to give an 
honest opinion if the principle 
of confidentiality is violated. 

After taking steps to insure con- 
fidentiality the remaining three 
principles could best be con- 
sidered collectively as the 
followthrough. The instructor 
should have aid within easy 
reach in order to stimulate the 
improvement which is the de- 
sired result of the evaluation; 
the instructor should have rea- 
son to believe he must make an 
effort to make the indicated 
improvements, and, finally, 
everyone should be satisfied 
with the professionalism shown 
in the conduct and interpre- 
tation of the evaluation. 

Most of the traits of poor teach- 
ing fall into one of three areas: 
personal traits, method of con- 
ducting class and method of pre- 
senting course. There is much 
overlap in these areas; however 
they do suggest most of the pro- 
per subject matter to cover in a 
student evaluation form. Some 
examples of these traits follow 
divided by category. 

• Lazy, sarcastic, conceited, 
impatient, dogmatic, intoler- 
ant, shows favoritism, won't 
admit errors, no humor or 
unkind humor. 

• Non-control of class, not 
enough time for work, talk- 
ing over students' heads, not 
permitting disagreement, un- 
systematic rambling in lec- 
ture, no outline or syllabus, 
inaccurate and careless grad- 
ing, poorly made tests, reads 

• Out of date material, un- 
varied methods, over depend- 
ence on text or notes, lack of 
connection made between 
class and real world, repeat- 
ing examples in text, provid- 
ing no materials of his own. 

• The above traits are also 
balanced by corresponding 
virtues some of which, 
according to the College and 
University Environment 
Scales (CUES), are: 

• Thorough teachers, dedicated 
scholars, high standards, well 
explained goals of courses, 
vigorous class discussion, use 
of exams to measure students 
understanding, frequent re- 
visions of courses, and posi- 
tive reaction to criticism. 

All of the factors mentioned are 
fairly objective criteria but room 
must be left also for the intang- 
ibles, the spark of flair which 
make some teachers superior 
even though the objective traits 
don't indicate any vast superior- 
ity. It should be noted that none 
of these points deals directly 
with the instructor's professional 
preparation, which the student is * 
not in a position to judge and 
has to be evaluated by other 

In certain cases, especially where 
there is a more general com- 
plaint, the structure of a depart- 
ment's courses may be at fault. 
In studies at the University of 
Michigan the faculty were con- 
sistently rated superior to the 
courses; it is planning which is 
lacking. This is why many 
faculty members require the 
most aid, and help in planning 
should be readily available to 
any instructor who needs it. 

The results of a properly con- 
ducted and analyzed faculty 
evaluation based on the prin- 
ciples presented above are of 
immense benefit to all students 
concerned with getting a quality 
education and to all faculty 
concerned with providing it.

What is JOJOBA? 

jojoba (simmonosia chinensis) is 
a beautiful shrub native to parts 
of Arizona, California and 
Mexico. The seeds are slightly 
smaller than sunflower seeds and 
have been eaten by the Indians 
for thousands of years. 
More importantly, the seeds 
yield an oil (actually a liquid 
wax) which serves as an ex- 
cellent replacement for sperm 
whale oil. Sperm whale oil is 
used as a high temperature lub- 
ricant. Since sperm whales are 
being over hunted, jojoba may 
be more widely cultivated in the 
near future. 

Jojoba is dioecious (male and fe- 
male flowers on separate plants). 
It grows well in arid and semi- 
arid regions and is hardy to 15 
degrees F.

Super Stars Week-end 

A certain group of people who probably had as much fun as the 
participants were very valuable to having the contest run as 
smoothly as it did. These people are the officials. They were there 
before the events and after to help set up for that days activities. 
The officials and helpers were Vince DeStefino, Donna Miller, 
Jeff Singleterry, Barb Petty, Janet Botti, Marianne Lamb, John 
DeNoma, Patty Briar, Fran Zamiskie, Karin Schmid, Dave Pratt, 
Dirk Wise, Pete Pruitt, Cindy Buchannon, Gary Schneider, Keith 
Detrick, Rich Keifner, Jim DeMille, Paul Pearson, Bill Grubb, and 
John DelGaiso. Let's all take our hats off to the officials, because 
it could not have been done without them. 

No matter whether the teams won or lost, everyone seemed to 
have loads of fun at this annual event organized by the Resident 
Assistant Staff and the Assistant Dean of Students Office, and 
paid for by Student Government. 

Superstars weekend came to a close with Team No. 4 (Bob God- 
bout, Vince Castello, Mike Danus, Stacy Kerstetter , Beth Cooper 
and Barb Gregory) finishing in first place with 162 points. Team 
No. 68, headed up by Vince Mattel came in second with 138 
points. And third place went to team No. 80 captained by Steve 
Hertig with 135 points. The other teams standings are as follows:

Golf Gossip 

Delaware Valley's Golf team trav- 
elled to Wilkes-Barre and came 
away with one win and one de- 
feat. The win came over Moravian 
as the Aggies stopped the Mus- 
tangs by 437-447. Scranton's 
score of 415 was best of the day 
in the tri-meet. 

"The course was very wet and it 
was very windy, consequently the 
scores were high", said Aggie 
Coach, Ned Linta. 

For Delaware Valley College, Ken 
Rickenbach, French town, N.J., 
had an 86, Mike Strusiak, Wayne, 
N.J. had an 87 along with team- 
mate John Bradley of Bridge- 
hampton, N.Y., Mark Werkheiser, 
Norristown, Pa., had an 88, and 
Richard Brandel, Pottstown, and 
Ed Strzelski, Moorestown, N.J., 
both had 89 's. 

The low medalist of the day was 
Scranton's Mike Gonski, who had 
an 82. 

The Aggies are now 2-2 and will 
visit Upsala on Monday, April 17.

So long 
for Now. 

/n the past semester we, the 
editorial staff of the Collegian, 
believe we have created at last 
the ideal newspaper, suited to 
life as it is lived at Del. Val. With 
the Invaluable aid of Dr. Ziemer 
and Mr. McClelland we have con- 
sistently produced a high Quality 
newspaper on a regular schedule, 
which exceeds the standards of 
"The Ram" in recent years. 

As always, we welcome part- 
icipation by any member of the 
student body who cttres to con- 
tribute (Pssst, don't forget to 
mention the half credit!) and we 
have noted, with some dis- 
appointment, the lack of enth- 
usiasm demonstrated We are 
going to say "surprise" but 
apathy at Del. Val. is never a 

Bitterness is not our goal, how- 
ever, in this fond farewell. The 
stimulation of some interest is 
our objective. Wake up, Del. 
Val. You no longer have to 
worry that the subject you write 
about, be it event, general 
harassment, or timely humor, 
will be passe' by the time it 
reaches print a month or more 
later. The "Collegian " is printed 
weekly. Everything is current, 
fresh and newsworthy. 

We are disheartened that we 
must depend so heavily on 
college press releases and other 
officially derived material. The 
situation may be even worse 
next semester. A majority of our 
small, but dedicated staff are 
graduating and no-one has 
stepped forward to fill our shoes 
notably the size 10's of the 
editors and treasurer. 

Our "baby" is going up for 
adoption with this issue. We 
think it has a good home but we 
want to find it some loving 
parents. There are no forms to 
fill out, no money down, no 
monthly payments and no fine 
print. Honest!

Memorial Stadium Announced 

At a recent meeting of the Board of 
Trustees, an approval was given to 
develop James Work Field into the 
lames Work Memorial Stadium. The 
facility is named for the late Dr. 
lames Work, Founder, President and 
Chancellor of Delaware Valley 

Dr. Work served the school and 
college in various capacities over a 
67-year period. He was a member of 
the football, track and baseball 
teams, Football Coach from 1913- 
1921, President of the National 
Alumni Association, member of the 
Board of the Trustees, Treasurer 
and President of the college, and 
Chancellor of the College from 1974 
until the time of his death in 1977. 

The new stadium will include a foot- 
ball field, practice area, an all 
weather six lane 400 meter track 

with an eight lane 1 10 meter straight- 
way, and facilities for all field events. 
The new home side grandstand will 
seat approximately 2950 people and 
will contain a large press box plus a 
field house underneath the stands. 
Two locker rooms, a training room, a 
concession booth, public lavatories, a 
storage room and a reception room 
will be included within the field 
house. The existing home grand- 
stand will be moved to the visiting 
side of the field. The total spectator 
capacity will be approximately 4000. 

The lames Work Memorial Stadium 
will be used for inter collegiate 
athletics, physical education for both 
men and women, outdoor concerts 
and Commencement Exercises. 

The project will commence immed- 
iately and a September, 1978 open- 
ing is planned. 

Read Carefully for Fall Aid 

All New lersey residents who are students at D.V.C. should be cognizant of 
the changes that the New jersey Department of Higher Education has in- 
stituted regarding the State Scholarship Program. 

New lersey and Pennsylvania are continuing their reciprocal grant agree- 
ment for the 1978-1979 academic year. The new program will establish a 
common basis for awarding grants and will utilize a common method of 
need analysis. In accordance with this arrangement several alterations have 
been implemented. 

1. The New lersey Department of Higher Education in cooperat- 
ion with the College Scholarship Service and the BEOG pro- 
gram have developed a procedure whereby students can be con- 
sidered for federal, state and college financial aid programs by 
filing ONE form - the New lersey Financial Aid Form(N|FAF)^ 
All New lersey residents attending in or out of state colleges 
must file the N|FAF. This form takes the place of the FAF 
and is essentially identical. The completed NjFAF must be 
mailed to the College Scholarship Service in Princeton and the 
analysis will be forwarded to the New jersey Office of Student 
Assistance only if item 80A is checked "yes." Also item 83 - 
BEOG consideration - must be checked "yes." A student 
applying for the Garden State Scholars Program (N.j. students 
only may apply) and the Tuition Aid Grant (TAG - N.j. res- 
idents in out of state colleges as well as institutions in N.j. may 
apply) must apply for the BEOG program. 

2. N.j. residents who are attending colleges in another sute will 
be found eligible for TAG. The TAG for studenu who attend 
college outside of N.J. may range up to $500 per year depend- 
ing on the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC). Garden State 
Scholar Grants will range up to $1000 for N.j. residents 
attending college in that state depending on the same anaylsls.

Interview with Al Wilson ! 

Mr. Wilson was asked to respond to questions relative to the construction 
of the James Work Memorial Stadium. 

QUESTION: "Are you aware that there Is criticism about this project 
among the students and members of the faculty?" 

WILSON: "Actually no one has expressed Uils opinion to me. However, If 
you tell me It Is true, I believe you. Let's fust take one point 
as a rebuttle to this criticism. As you get older, you will meet 
certain individuals who, as a result of some special quality , are 
head and shoulders above the crowd. There are really very few 
who qualify for this category. James Work was such a man. 

This College as we know It Is the result of his effort. He was a 
man of vision, of passion, of action. Certainly he was a thinker 
and a philosopher! But, . , the thing that stood out about him 
was his ability to get things done. There was a sparkle In his 
eye, a set line to his Jaw, sleeves rolled up, ready to go to It. He 
willingly met challenge after challenge and won I Look around 
you! His physical accomplishments are everywhere: this gym- 
nasium, Goldman Hail, Samuel Hail, New Dorm, Levin Dining 
Hall, Mandell Science Center and the Agriculture Building to 
name a few. 

There will probably be only two things with the word memor- 
ial describing them on this campus. One is the KrausMopf 
Memorial Library honoring the memory of the founder of the 
National Farm School. Dr. Krauskopf, from what I am told 
was a thinker ■ a planner. So the Joseph Krauskopf Memorial 
Library is a fitting tribute. The second is the James Work 
Memorial Stadium honoring the memory of the Founder, 
President and Chancellor of our College as well as the National 
Agricultural College, Dr, Work loved sports as he loved this 
school. What better way is there to honor the man who was a 
doer and competitor extraordinaire than to name our new 
stadium in him memory? 

I hope the answer is satisfactory and I doubt if you will really 
hear much criticism from our faculty and students, " 

QUESTION: "Why do we need a new football stadium?" 

WILSON: "I hope you don't mind my answering this question with a 
number of points, and if you don 't mind, let's list them I, 2, 3, 

1. First of all, we are not just building a new football stadium. 
The James Work Memorial Stadium Is an athletic complex. The 
football stadium is only a part of It. Actually, if all we cared 
about was improving the football field, we could have remod- 
eled Alumni Field into a fine stadium. However that would 
not have solved many of our problems. So to refer to the new 
complex as simply a football stadium is erroneous. 

2, One of our most critical needs in the Department of Athletics 
is locker room facilities. Presently, all of our locker rooms are 
housed within the two gymnasiums which were built when this 
was an ail-boys school. With the addition of Women's Athletics 
and additional overall enrollment we are bursting at the seams. 
During the fail, three men 's sports share two locker rooms and 
before these seasons end, two winter sports begin practice. Our 
women are forced out of their locker room on various occas- 
ions and I suppose the crowning blow was having our Field 
Hockey and Soccer teams play away on Homecoming because 
of inadequate locker room facilities. 

Two locker rooms will be built within the complex, as well as 
a storage room, public lavatories, a concession stand and, the 
Work Reception Room which will contain memorabilia of 
James Work's life. It will be used for meetings and receptions 
by faculty, students and alumni, 

3. At one time, Delaware Valley College conveniently shared the 
track facility at the Doyiestown Community Field. Except for 
the risk factor with athletes running to and from the College 
and the Track, it worked reasonably well. However, times have 
changed and we now share the same facility with boys' and 
girls ' track teams from two high schools and even from some 
junior highs. Not only is there difficutly In scheduling home 
meets but there is a morale problem relative to the availability 
of the track for practice. 

The construction of a track on campus will be practical and 
also enhance our image as a college. It seems logical that the 
only four-year college In Bucks County should be able to host 
a Bucks County High School Relay Championship. People who 
did not know of our existence might all of a sudden come to 
know us because of our quality facility. ^ 

4, Despite the fact that we have a campus in excess of 800 acres, 
we do not have an abundance of practice fields or intramural 
fields. A new practice field for football within the stadium 
complex could also double as an (hopefully lighted) intramural 

' Softball field. 

The beauty of the campus will be enhanced by not practicing 
football in the center of the campus on the baseball field. 
Alumni Field will be utlllied for Field Hockey only. Therefore, 
for the majority of the time a beautiful lawn will be In exist- 
ence as one enters our campus.

Dear Editor: 

Of late, I have heard much discussion 
concerning the proposed football 
stadium. Most recently, the rumor (I 
have to resort to this word for lacl( 
of information about such projects 
to the student body) is that the new 
stadium will be constructed. 

I do not know much more about the 
project than stated here, so some of 
my statements might be inapprop- 
riate, but I know that many of these 
arguments are present in many 
students' minds. 

Why do we need a new stadium? Will 
our football team perform any better 
with a new playing field? Why does 
the College support athletic advent- 
ures such as this, when other econo- 
mic investments in the college would 
perhaps benefit the students and the 
college more. And who is funding 
such a project? The students? The 
athletic department? special contrib- 
utors? or a combination? Upon 
becoming an alumnus this year, I 
know I will have some say over what 
happens with donated funds. Why 
don't students have more say in such 
events, or at least be notified of the 
chance to now? 

Some of the projects that might be of 
more importance to the majority of 
the student body are an enlargement 
of the overly-successful laundromat, 
a new student center/auditorium (the 
lack of a proper stage and auditorium 
was presented to student govern- 
ment, April 24th, 1978), functioning 
vending machines, retrieval of con- 
verted study and TV lounges and 
additional parkmg space near acad- 
emic buildings for commuters. 

Can the students find out about what 
D.V.C. plans for expansion? Or nwist 

we wait until we are rich alumni and 
earmark a fortune for specific impro- 
vements, when we cannot enjoy 
them? Happy students make a happy

to address the student body, 
Ity and administration concern- 
ing the construction of the new track 
and field facility, particularly direct- 
ing this letter to the attention of 
those who oppose the decision. These 
people are quick to criticize the de- 
cision by saying that the money 
should have been spent on "more 
important things," i.e. educational 
facilities, farm equipment and the 
construction of new and better barns. 
There are a multitude of provisions 
which must be made on campus and 
I am sure the administration is aware 
of them. They just can not be done 
all at once on a limited financial 
source. Certain items take priority. 
The decision to construct a new track 
was not a premature spur-of-the- 
moment one. In the past it was 
turned down many times in order to 
initiate other projects, i.e. the con- 
struction of a dorm, for one example. 
A new track will bring with it many 
unseen inherent advantages. The safe- 
ty risk involved in jogging up to the 
C.B. West track for practice and com- 
petition will be eliminated. Increased 
community relations can occur with 
the use of the facility by the local 
townspeople. An increased student 
pride in the school will also occur. In 
addition, D.V.C. recognition will 
grow. The value of the decision 
should be realized by its opponents. 
It exemplifies the fact that beneficial 
things can be accomplished at D.V.C. 
by working with the administration. 
In a school the size of D.V.C, it 
takes time, effort and money to get 
large projects accomplished, but the 
important thing is that it can be 
done! Instead of criticizing decisions 
already made, these people should 
divert their energies into suggesting 
and supporting new projects. Further 
criticism aimed at issues of these 
types can only serve as a hindrance to 
the critics themselves, to the improv- 
ement of our college, and to the 
proper student-administration rel- 
ation that is necessary and conducive 
to the success of future project

To the Editor, 

Let's say you're living thousands of 
miles from the continental United 
States in U.S. held territory within 
another country. If you suddenly 
found out you would lose your job 
within the next six months and had 
to leave that country, what would 
you do in this situation? Complaining 
to your Congressman would ndt do 
you any good because he helped 
bring about your predicament. Stay- 
ing in that country won't work very 
well either because the country isn't 
offering any worthwhile incentives to 
stay. The only worthwhile course of 
action left for the U.S. citizen in the 
foreign country is to pack up and 

This situation is real and is actually 
happening now in the Canal Zone on 
the isthmus of Panama. 

Some might say, "Why not stay in 
Panama?" Sure you can stay in Pan- 
ama and be controlled by Panama's 
National Guard Police. Before, the 
Panamanian National Guard didn't 
always treat U.S. Citizens fairly. 
Now that they will acquire more 
power (when the U.S. police force is 
phased out), I can't imagine how 
they will treat the Americans 

Six months is not a long time when 
you have to pull up stakes, give up 
your career, move your family to the 
U.S. and hope to find a job. The 
factors of losing one's job and re- 
locating your entire family are hard 
enough, but for a family to do so in 
this day and age is almost unafford- 

Ever since the treaty negotiations 
started years ago, the Americans in 
the Canal Zone have been "getting 
the shaft". In some situations, it 
seems as if the U.S. Government 
takes better care of foreigners than of 
its own people. This seems to be the 
case in the Panama Canal situation. 

I enjoy so much about hearing how 
these new treaties will encourage 
better relationships with Panama and 
all the other Latin American count- 
ries. I have yet to hear anything 
whatsoever from the U.S. Govern- 
ment telling the U.S. public what 
hardships the Zonians will be faced 
with as a result of the treaties! Do 
they think the public already has too 
much to worry about? What signif- 
icance do these few thousands of 
Americans in the Zone have? They 
are just the people who maintain and 
keep the Canal operating, that's all. 
They have no significance, do they? 

President Carter says these treaties 
are a big victory for him. For me, it's 
too early to tell. If anything is going 
to happen down there, it's going to 
happen in the next few years. I just 
hope that Panama's fascist military 
dictator doesn't embrace commun- 

With the United States being so gen- 
erous, I hope France doesn't ask for 
the Statue of Liberty back! 

Michael Ridge (Annoyed American) 

Editor's Note.Michael Ridge is Junior 
Ornamental Horticulture student at 
the College. He was born and reared 
in the Canal Zone, relocating In the 
states upon enrolling at D. V.C. We 
appreciate his point of view on a sub- 
ject that has been headlines for 
months. It's a point of view that 
hasn 't been heard. 

Who Knows? 

In the providence of 
Seeing all things done, 
Perhaps the stadium 
Is a vision 
Whose time has come!

An Open Letter to 
the Students 

Spring is here and it is time for us all to endure (perhaps partake in) the 
annual fit of rejuvenation popularly known as Spring Fever. Excitement is 
in the air and we all feel it; it's been a long, hard winter and a long, hard 
semester. We all feel a need to blow off some steam. 

I am concerned,, however, that this year, perhaps more than most, the 
ritual steam-blowing seems to have taken a particularly malicious turn. 
When I arrived on campus early on the morning of May 4th, I found most 
of the campus roadways barricaded (Bastile Day?) - an adolescent prank - 
harmless enough on first impression, until you st6p to think what would 
happen if an ambulance or fire truck had roared onto campus full-tilt to 
answer an emergency call. Then other evidences of nocturnal activity be- 
came evident: signs were uprooted, trees damaged and newly-planted sod 
peeled back. Now we have passed the bounds of excusable youthful ex- 
uberance . . . that kind of "prank" is simply malicious destruction. And in 
many ways we all pay for it. 

There are several things that happen when that kind of destruction takes 
place. First of all, somebody has to pay for the time and materials to re- 
place the damage. Guess who that "somebody" is - it's you! And while 
those resources are being spent to repair senseless destruction, time and 
effort are diverted from other more worthwhile pursuits, such as creating a 
pleasant and memorable atmosphere for the Class of 1978's graduation 

Secondly, when incidents like this occur, everybody who is bothered by it 
gets frustrated, especially if the culprits aren't caught. That frustration 
needs to be vented and it might take any or all of several forms: tougher 
administration of dorm policies, more parking tickets, tighter control of 
student access to facilities or a distrustful attitude on the part of faculty or 
administration personnel. We all suffer, from those of us who are frustrated 
because it makes us tougher to get along with, to the whole student body 
that has to bear the expense in many, many ways. 

Is there a solution? The common comment seems to be, "Where were the 
Ross guards?" Where, indeed? But that really isn't the answer, or, indeed, 
the right question. Where were you? Unless we want to contemplate a 
society where the police represent a very sizable fraction of the population, 
we have to be willing to police ourselves. That doesn't mean everybody has 
to become a fink or that everybody has to overnight become goody-goody. 
It simply means that in a civil society, everybody has civil responsibilities. 
If you want to have that kind of responsibility, you have to behave respon- 
sibly. Malicious destruction doesn't have to happen. And it will only 
happen when we let it happen. Think about it! Aren't you getting tired of 
paying the freight for somebody else's destructive pranks? D.V.C. is where 
you live nine months out of the year - do you want your home to become 
an anarchaic shambles or do you want to have some sense of pride in your 
home? The ball is in your court.

5. We have an unusually large rate of participation in Inter- 
collegiate and Intramural Athletics. Not only will Inter-college- 
iate events be held In the James Work Memorial Stadium, but it 
will be used for intramural track meets, joggers and adequate 
to hold outdoor events such as concerts, and the Commence- 
ment Exercises. " 

QUESTION: "How much will it cost and how will we finance it?" 

WILSON: "I want to preface a statement on cost by stating that the 
James Work Memorial Stadium will become a source of pride 
for our students and alumni. I believe that our Alumni Execut- 
ive Board realized this when they recently voted to support 
this project. The actual cost will be approximately 
$300,000.00. It will be funded by contributions to the James 
Work Memorial Fund, private donations from members of the 
Board of Trustees, alumni contributions and monies received 
as a result of a major fund-raising drive to be initiated in the 
near future. 

Considering the fact that plans for this project have been dis- 
cussed as far back as 1965, and Dr. Work told me personally 
that we would build this complex, you can see that this Is not 
a spur of the moment decision. 

Our college has grown to the point that we must expand. 
Certainly this project will be a fitting Memorial to Dr. James 
Work and a practical realisation of the visions that made Del- 
aware Valley College great. " 

Election Day is Tuesday, May 16, 1978. Why not vote this year? Voter's 
Guides are available through the Dean of Students Office and the Recept- 
ion Desk in Lasker Hall.

Or. Richard Ziemer, Associate Professor of General Studies is shovwi 
with his award-winning Bird of Paradise Recipe. 

On May 20, 1978, Dr. Richard C. Ziemer was one of 10 finalists in 
the National Chicken Cooking Contest for the state of Pennsylvania, 
and participated by preparing his recipe at North Lebanon County 
Area High School. The goal was to select one person from Pennsyl- 
vnaia to participate in the National Cookoff in Tampa July 26, 

As each contestant's dish was finished, it was judged; and by noon 
the judges' decision was announced and a lunch was served. The only 
male contestant, Dr. Ziemer listened as the one winner was announc- 
ed. Instead, he came in somewhere between second and tenth place 
and received two new T-fal skillets. This year's winner had made 
three previous attempts. 

The four judging categories are 1 . simplicity, 2. interest, 3. appear- 
ance, and 4. flavor. Dr. Ziemer's recipe has been acclaimed a winner 
by family and friends anyway, and should you like to prepare it, 
here it is. What could be simpler than three ingredients? Orange 
soda or diet orange soda may be substituted for orange juice, and 
the chicken may be prepared in the oven or on an outdoor grill. 


1 broiler-fryer chicken, cut in parts 

2/3 cup orange juice 
1/3 cup soy sauce 

In large shallow baking pan place chicken, skin side up, in single 
layer. In bowl mix orange juice and soy sauce. Pour over chicken. 
Bake, uncovered, in 325°F oven, basting and turning every 15 
minutes about 1-1/2 hours or until fork can be inserted in chicken 
with ease. Remove chicken from basting sauce to serve. Makes 4 


The Del Val Cross Country Team is again in search of students both 
experienced and inexperienced, male or female, who might be 
interested in participating in cross country during the Fall, 1978 

Although previous running experience is sometimes helpful in cross 
country, it is not as critical as in many other sports. In fact, many 
Del Val cross country standouts in past years had no competitive 
running experience until they enrolled at D.V.C, 

The team is a very close knit group, and practices are scheduled so as 
to compliment rather than detract from academic endeavors. If you 
think you might be interested in running with the cross country 
team during the Fall Season, report to the main lobby of the James 
Work Gymnasium weekdays at 4:15 P.M. dressed to run (shorts, T- 
shirt, sneakers). 


A meeting for all men's basketball candidates will be held on Mon- 
day, September 1 1 at 4:30 in the gym. Anyone interested in playing 
J.V. or Varsity Basketball should attend. Please bring a pen and a 
copy of your class schedule. 

Also anyone (male or female) interested in becoming a manager, 
score-keeper, or statistician should attend this meeting. For further 
information, contact Coach Lombardi. 


Are you interested in Sports Information? We need interested people 
who can type to volunteer their services. If you are interested, con-

Saturday, September 16 is a big day in Delaware Valley College 
football. The Aggies will host the Colonels from Wilkes College in 
the opening game of the season. The reason for the excitement is 
this will be the first game played in the new James Work Memorial 
Stadium. The new Aggie home named after the founder of the Col- 
lege was constructed during the summer. This brand new facility is 
one of the best in the area with increased seating capacity to handle 
4,000 spectators and a complete field house. 

Head Coach, A! Wilson, is optimistic as he enters his third year. In 
last year's season opener the "Aggies" snapped an 18 game losing 
streak and went on to a 2-7 record. Throughout the pre-season camp 
the coaching staff has been impressed with the enthusiasm and posi- 
tive attitude of this year's squad. Coupled with some experience the 
Aggies are looking to improve on last year's record. 

Coach Rollie Schmidt of Wilkes knows that Delaware Valley is 
opening a new stadium. He has led the "Colonels" to seven M.A.C. 
crowns during his sixteen years at Wilkes. Wilkes has 33 returning 
lettermen, 18 on offense and 15 on defense. With plenty of experi- 
ence returning, Coach Schmidt should have the Wilkes Colonels in 
the thick of M.A.C. northern conference action and improve on last 
year's 4-5 record. 

Presently there Is a five way battle from the defensive tackle posi- 
tion. Senior jim Fretz S'll", 200 and four sophomores; Ed Craig 
6'6", 230; Charles Alpuche 6'4", 203; Mark Beale 6'1 ", 220; and 
Frank Velucci 6'2", 210 are fitting for the two slots. The line- 
backing crop should be much improved. Outstanding candidates for 
linebackers are juniors Joe Leili and Bryan Felter, sophomores Tom 
Houpt and Warren Robertson, and freshman Kevin Hoke and jim 

Keith Sipple 6*0", 175 junior, an outstanding defensive back last 
year will head a list of defensive candidates in the backfield. Junior 
Gary Scott, sophomores Brian Emerick, Art Hannigan, Mark Dobies, 
and Mike Mondevergine; and freshmen Paul Martino and Rod Bates 
will battle for positions in the defensive backfield. 

In addition to having some experience. Coach Wilson feels that the 
whole squad is excited about something else. The Aggies will open 
the season in a brand new facility. The James Work Memorial 
Stadium, named after the founder of the College, will be completed 
for the first game. 

Coach Wilson and his squad are looking forward to the season. 
Wilson feels that a lot will depend on what happens in the rest of the 
M.A.C. northern conference. The Aggies will do their best to con- 
tinue their improvement on Saturday, September 16 in the season's 
opener against Wilkes at home. 


Head Coach Al Wilson and his staff greeted 97 football candidates 
at the beginning of camp. Wilson was impressed with the squad's 
enthusiasm and positive attitude. For the first time in Wilson's ttiree 
years at Delaware Valley College he has some experienced players to 
call upon. Although there are only four seniors, an experienced crop 
of juniors and sophomores, including about 25 letter winners, adds 
to Wilson's spirit of optimism. 

During Coach Wilson's first two seasons he has stressed improve- 
ment. Last year the Aggies won their first two games and broke an 
18 game losing streak. Wilson feels this season's positive attitude will 
help improve on last year's 2 - 7 record. 

Depth and competition for playing positions characterize the offen- 
sive unit. At the quarterback spot there is a three-way battle for the 
starting position. Juniors Metro Malasavage 6'2", 180 from Marian 
Catholic, Ron Haraka 6'2", 190 from Clifton, N.J., and sophomore 
Tom Kenny 6'3", 175 from Willow Grove hope to win the battle for 
the starting quarterback job. 

The backfield is led by last year's leading ground-gained junior Bill 
Mullen 5'9", 180 from Pennsburg, Pa. Two other experienced backs 
are junior Peter Albano, 5'10", 200 from Marian Catholic and senior 
Joe Laumakis 5'9", 185 product of North Catholic H.S. in Phila- 
delphia. Greg Salicondro a 5'ir', 180 sophomore from Cardinal 
Dougherty H.S. in Philadelphia and freshman jim Duncan from 
Pottsville has shown promise in the pre-season workouts. 

At the flanker position, Les Davies 6'r', 190 sophomore from 
Schuylkill Haven returns this season. Last year Davies was the 
second leading receiver in the conference. Rich Jansson, a 5'H" 190 
freshman from St. Clair, Pa. has also looked impressive in the flanker 
position. The split end position, is shared by two sophomores, Dave 
Jefferson 6'0", 180 from Perkasie and James Yaxujian 5'8", 160 
from Schuylkill Haven. 

Sophomore Gary Walters, last year's outstanding lineman heads a list 
of veteran offensive linemen including sophomore Mike Bergamo, 
junior Bob Root, and seniors Charles Thomas and Bob Reapsome. 
Other contributors to the "green line" will be sophomore jim 
Fogarty and freshman Greg Setta and Dave Bowersox. Returning at 
the tight end position is Phil Boob a 6'2", 200 sophomore from Mill 
Hall, Pa. Two freshmen, Mike Petty and Don Megarty, have also 
looked good at that position. 

The defense is anchored by co-captains jack Mazak a 6'2", 225 lb. 
defensive end from Schuylkill Haven and Shickora, another 6'2", 
210 lb. play defensive end. Last year Bruce Shickora was the de- 
fensive statistical leader and led the team in tackles. Sophomore 
defensive end Steve Fornoff has also looked good at that position.

The Colonels of Wilkes College and the host Delaware Valley College 
Aggies put on a good ^ow of hard hitting and U>ugh MAC football 
for a large opening day in the new James Work Memorial Stadium. 
The game was close and the outcome in doubt virtually until the 
final ^n. 

The early action was highlighted by tough defensive play by both 
units. The Aggies had better field position but were able to come up 
with one field goal by Kevin Hoke, a 6'1 1 " - 21 5 lb. freshman from 
Pottsville, Pa. The 36 yarder was his third attempt of the game. 

With 4 seconds left in the half, Wilkes capitalized on a partially- 
blocked Steve Fomoff punt and Dan Pisarciak of Wilkes converted 
a 39 yard field goal. The field goal knotted the game at 3-3. 

Wilkes started the second half by marching 76 yards and Carmen 
Lopresto, a 5'9" - 185 lb. sophomore running back, scored from the 
five yard line. The extra point by Dan Pisarciak was good to make 
the score Wilkes 10-3. 

The Aggies of Delaware Valley College can>e back with a scoring 
drive led by sophomore Tom Kenny from Willow Grove, Pa. Kenny 
finished the day with 13 completions while attempting 31 passes. 
Dave Jefferson, a 6'0" - 180 lb sophomore from Perkasie, Pa, was 
the leading receiver with 8 catches for 148 yards. A 2 yard touch- 
down run by Bill Mullen, a 5*9" - 185 lb. junior from Pennsburg, Pa,, 
Wis the only Delaware Valley touchdown. The attempted two-point 
conversion failed. 

Delaware Valley College had several chances to score in the fourth 
quarter. With less than 3 minutes to go in the game, Dan Pisarciak of 
Wilkes missed a short field goal. The Wilkes defense held and re- 
gained possession, ultimately winning the game 10-9. 

The Delawve Valley College Aggies travel to Moravian College this 
weekend. Last Saturday, Moravian and Dickinson College battled to 
a 10-10 tie in another opening game thriller. A 1:30 kickoff is

Observant students and faculty who walk along the road adjacent to 
Alumni Field have noticed "women in motion" since Monday, Sept. 
11. This elite group of "women In motion" are referred to as the 
"Lady Aggies" and comprise the 1978-79 field hockey team. 

After a grueling week of sprinting, jogging, and ball handling skills, 
there are nineteen dedicated women who will be representing Dela- 
ware Valley College in what could be the most competitive schedule 
since hockey began in 1974. 

The Lady Aggies open their season Thursday, Sept. 25th at Muhlen- 
berg Collie, Allentown, Pa. Their home opener Is scheduled for 
Parents' Day Saturday, Sept. 30th when they will host Ursinus 
College at 1 1 :00 a.m. 

Although the Lady Aggies' depth chart is limited. Coach Vellner is 
expecting returning letter winners: Linda Budrewicz, Carol Metzgar, 
Mary Ann Horst, Sue Ann Leed, and Barb Petty to change the one- 
time defensive team into a strong offensive team; one that will con- 
centrate on ball possession. Freshmen Irene Costa, Barb Meyer, and 
Donna Cossano will play a major role in providing that extra offen- 
ave punch that the Aggies wilj find necessary. 

Along with the expanded schedule the Lady Aggies will be in con- 
tention for a spot in the Northern Divisional play-offs of the MAC 
which will be held the first week in November. Also, an all confer- 
ence team will be selected for the first time in Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference history. Coach Vellner feels that Del-Val has a few leading 
candidates in Annette White, fullb^k and Linda Budrewicz, goal-

After scheduling classes and buying books, college students should 
take a few minutes to register to vote. 

That's the advice of Commonwealth Secretary Barton A. Fields who 
says that 18 to 25-year-olds have largely ignored their right to vote. 

"College students are often particularly well-informed on the issues 
of the day, but they seem to neglect their right to vote," Mr. Fields 

"Political decisions affect nuny areas of a student's life such as the 
tuition rate at state-supported and state-related colleges and univer- 
sities, and the amount of state scholarship money available. It seems 
to me that college students should take an interest in choosing the 
office-holders whose decisions will directly affect their lives." 

For those potential voters who are unsure of how to register and 
vote, the Department of State offers the following short course in 
voter education. 

1 . Do I register where I live or where I go to school? 

You may register either as an elector of the county in which 
you live or you may register as an elector of the county in which 
you attend school. The choice is up to you. 

2. How do I register? 

Register by appearing in person at the appropriate county 
courthouse or, more simply, by obtaining and filling out a voter 
registration by mail form. Many college bookstores and student 
unions will have forms available. Forms can also be obtained at 
various public places such as libraries, post offices, courthouse and 
state stores. Mail registration forms are pre-addressed and postage- 

3. Is there a deadline for voter registration? 

In order to vote in the Novenvber 7 Election, you must register 
by Tuesday, October 10. Persons who will be 18 on or before 
November 8 are eligible to register. 

4. Can I vote by absentee ballot? 

If you will be out of the county where you are registered on 
Election Day, Tuesday, November 7, you may request an absentee 
ballot either by appearing in person at the appropriate county court- 
house or by mailing a signed request for an absentee ballot to the 
courthouse. You may apply for an absentee ballot between Septem- 
ber 18 and October 31. When your application is approved, the 
county will mail your absentee ballot to you. 

5. Who will be up for election this November? 

On Tuesday, November 7, Pennsylvanians will elect a govenor 
and lieutenant governor, aJI representatives to Congress, all represen- 
tatives to the State House, and the twenty-five State Senators from 
even numbered districts. 

Further information' is available from your county courthouse 
or from the Bureau of Elections, Room 304 North Office Building, 
Harrlsburg, Pennsylvania 17120.

A giant GIftbox was opened at Riiladelphia's City Tavern on Sep- 
tember 19, revealing a $400,000 college scholarship program from 
Philadelphia National Bank to celebrate its 175th anniversary. 

The program, open to high school students from this area who will 
attend one of 30 participating colleges next fall, was announced by 
PNB Chairman G. Morris Dorrance, Jr. Delaware Valley College is 
one of the participants. 

City Tavern is where Philadelphia National Bank was formed 175 
years ago. 

The mysterious Giftbox, which "flew" into Penn's Landing Sept. 6 
and then toured the five-county Greater Philadelphia area for two 
weeks, was wheeled into the cobblestone courtyard in Dock Street 
behind City Tavern before a gathering of civic, business and aca- 
demic leaders. 

Dorrance recounted the beginnings of the financial institution at the 
historic Old Philadelphia location and then asked PNB guards to un- 
lock the Giftbox. They first removed an oversized check for 
$400,000, which Dorrance said represented a gift to the people of 
Greater Philadelphia. 

The guards next pulled an oversized "document" from the 12-foot 
box which Dorrance said represented 50 four-year scholarships to be 
awarded young people of the area who will enter 30 local colleges in 
the fall of 1979. 

Forty-five of the scholarships will be presented to the youth of the 
community and five to sons and daughters of PNB employees, he 

Each scholarship is worth $8,000. Six thousand dollars ($1,500 a 
year) will go to the recipient's college for his educational expenses. 
Another two thousand dollars ($500 a year) will go to his college for 
unrestricted purposes. 

Dorrance said brochures describing the program and containing 
scholarship applications are available at PNB's 73 branch offices. 

Before revealing the contents of the giftbox, Dorrance said the deci- 
sion to offer a scholarship program was based on PNB's long-time 
involvement svith programs designed to motivate and develop the 
area's youth. 

Dorrance concluded with the announcement that the Giftbox is 
being donated to the Second Macedonia Church Cominunity Service 
Center in the OIney section of Philadelphia for use as a children's 
playhouse. PNB is involved in an experimental early reading pro- 
gram at the service center. 



The Bucks County Audobon Society will continue its educational 
program of activities with a field trip on September 30 and October 
1 to Cape May Point in New Jersey. This will be an opportunity for 
a weekend of adventure observing the fall migration at its peak. 

Those participating can expect to witness large migratory waves 
of hawks and passerine species. The trip will be lead by Judge Hart 
Rufe, President of the Bucks County Audubon Society. The public 
is invited, and those attending should meet at the Cape May Point 
Lighthouse parking area at 6:30 a.m. each dya. Motel and camping 
reservations will be left to the individual. 


This weekend, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is sponsoring 
its annual Harvest Show in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia. There will 
be comn^-'-ltlve exhibits of crt flowers, cut branches, vegetables and 

frujt of all types, home-made preserves, and many types of house- 
plant, herb, and flower arrangements. In addition there will be major 
exhibits assembled by local plant societies and garden clubs. The 
D.V.C. Horticultural Society is one such exhibitor. Several growers 
will have concessions featuring herbs and houseplants. 

The show will be held in Memorial Hall, located in the Fairmount 
Park section of Philadelphia. It is to be open to the public from 
10:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M. on Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct 
1. Admission: $1.00 at the door, but the show is well worth it. 


Dealware Valley College in conjunction with the Lenape Land Asso- 
ciation will sponsor a lecture and edible plant tour by Nicholas 
Schoumatoff on Sunday, October 1st, 1978. Shoumatoff is a well 
known ethnobotanist, anthropologist and curator of the Ward Pound 
Ridge Trailside Nature Museum in Cross River New York. He will 
present his lecture at 1 :00 P.M. in the James Work Gymnasium. 

Shoumatoff will discuss Indian culture, taking the audience through 
a modern odyssey to find the descendants of the Unami and other 
Algonkian Indians of the Northeast. 

Following the formal lecture he will lead a tour of the campus 
grounds to illustrate Indian herbal and plant lore. He will identif> 
various edible plants used by I ndians in their everyday life. 


The Aggies celebrated their first win of the season by defeating West-

F. and M. by the score of 16 to 47 bringing the Aggies record to one 
win and three losses. In the Western Maryland meet, Bruce Murphy, 
Vic Frey, and Matt Hengle took the 2, 3, and 4 positions to enable 
the Aggie victory. 

This Saturday, September 30, The Delaware Valley Harriers meet 
Albright, Textile, and Wilkes on the Bealmont Plateau in Phila- 


The Aggies suffered their second straight defeat at the hands of 
Moravian College. The first play from scrimmage resulted in a 63 
yard run by Fred Herbine down to the six yard line. One play later, 
Bob Meyer scored from the six. The extra point conversion was good 
giving Moravian a 7-0 lead. Within a span of two minutes Bob Meyer 
again scored from 17 yards and from 42 yards extending their lead 
to 21-0 at the end of the first quarter. 

Two interceptions led to a field goal and a touchdown handing 
Moravian a 31-0 half-time lead. 

In the third quarter, the Aggies offense came together with Pete 
Albano scoring from the two capping a 59 yard drive. The two point 
conversion failed. 

Late in the third quarter, sophomore lineman Frank Velucci re- 
covered a fumble on the Moarvian 16 yard line. On the second play 
from scrimmage, sophomore quarterback Tom Kenny threw to Phil 
Boob for the Aggie's second touchdown. The two point conversion 
was good. Then, Moravian scored again with a 63 yard run giving 
them a 38-1 4 lead. 

In the fourth quarter, Moravian scored again with a 17 yard run 
increasing their lead to 44-14. The Aggies, still battling back, scored 
when Ron Haraka passed to Jim Yazujian for the final touchdown. 
Lenard Conrad converted the extra point. 

In the final recap, the Aggies came out on top in statistics, but made 
too many turnovers to win the ballgame. 

EXTRA POINTS - This weekend, Parent's Day, is the opening cere- 
mony for the James Work Memorial Stadium. A good enthusiastic 
turn out by students and faculty members might be what the Aggies 
need to get on the winning track. Last week's statistics were good. A 
good turnout could spur the Aggies on to VICTORY.

Undergraduate students attending the 1978 Annual joint Regional 
Meeting ratified a Constitution and By-Laws and elected officers for 
their new student organization. The main purpose of this organiza- 
tion is to provide a channel of communication whereby information 
of mutual interest may be exchanged between the various member 
chapters and between the member chapters and the NED-ADSA and 
NES-ASAS. It will also attempt to acquaint students with the scope 
purposes and programs of the ASAS and ADSA while introducing 
them to the leaders of the animal, dairy and allied industries. The 
organization will aid in developing leadership and will promote 
scholarship among students interested in the dairy and livestock 

The first project of this group is a Job Opportunity Booklet. This 
booklet will contain the results of a survey of the dairy and livestock 
industry in the Northeast and the employment opportunities avail- 
able therein. They hope to expand this program to include an inter- 
view or contact workshop during the Regional Meetings.

The Bucks County Audubon Society will be touring John James 
Audubon's estate in Montgomery County on October 7. Those 
accompaning the group will not only tour the museum, but also 
join the Society on a nature walk through the lush Audubon Sanctu- 
ary. This will be an opportunity to see some of Audubon's original 
artwork and the environment which inspired it. 

The trip will be lead by Ed Graham, curator of the museum. The 
general public is invited, and those planning to attend are advised to 
bring binoculars. 

The group will meet in the Sanctuary parking lot which is located at 
the end of the driveway at the intersection of Pualing and Audubon 
Roads in Audubon, Montgomery County. 


The new marine painting exhibition at the Brandywine River Mu- 
seum, "Sights of the Sea," reveals a variety of relationships between 
the artist and the sea and a common fascination for the subject. It 
begins with the "father of American illustration," Howard Pyle. 

The subject of Pyle's first story was Chlncoteague Island, and Re- 
hoboth Beach, Del., was a favorite theme throughout the artist's 
life. All of his well-known paintings and sketches of pirates and 
adventures on the high seas, several of which were later collected in 
"Howard Pyle's Book of Pirates," were painted on that coastline, 
then still wild and romantic. 

Pyle's students at Wilmington and Chadds Ford shared his enthusi- 
asm for the sea. Frank Schoonover, better known for his paintings of 
Western adventure, also portrayed pirates and sea battles. Stanley 
Arthurs, the noted historical illustrator, painted sensitive seascapes 
of the beaches he visited with Pyle and fellow students. 

William Aylward, another Pyle student, devoted most of his life to 
maritime illustration and became widely known for his paintings of 
naval battles. He wrote and illustrated the book, "Ships and How to 
Draw Them." 

Anton Otto Fischer, a German painter who later became the official 
war artist for the U.S. Coast Guard, studied briefly with Pyle, and is 
known for the illustrated account, "Focs'le Days," of his experi- 
ences aboard a square rigger, 

Clifford Ashley, whose book "The Yankee Whaler" contains inter- 
esting accounts of the last days of the American whaling fleet, is 
probably the most nautical of the Pyle students. Born in the New 
England whaling town of New Bedford, Ashley sailed and painted 
the sea all his life, once serving for six weeks on a whaling vessel to 

gain first hand knowledge of the trade for a magazine article. Best 
known for "The Ashley Book of Knots," his ambition was to pro- 
duce painting and illustrations that would "satisfy both the sailor 
and the artist." 

The Wyeths, N.C., Andrew, Jamie and Carolyn, have carried Pyle's 
interest in marine subjects to the third and fourth generation. N.C. 
Wyeth, the most famous of Pyle's students, early acquired a summer 
home in Port Clyde, Maine, and his children and grandchildren, all of 
whom summered in Maine, inherited his love of the sea. 

John McCoy, who married N.C. Wyeth's daughter Ann, is also 
known for his paintings of the Maine Coast, where he spends his 
summers at Spruce Head, near the Wyeth home at Port Clyde. In 
contrast to Pyle's and N.C, Wyeth's dramatic renditions of pirates 
and naval battles, McCoy's works are quiet and reflective, mirroring 
the mysterious, brooding quality of Maine's rocks, trees and sky, 

Jamie Wyeth has gone further to sea than any of the family before 
him. His home is on Monhegan Island, twenty miles off the coast. 
His work in oils and tempera often depicts animals and objects 
found on Monhegan and reveals a great deal of personal involvement 
with his Maine home. , - 

Pyle published his first sea story in 1877, The work of his students 
since that time, witnessed by the Brandywine's exhibition, testifies 
to the sea's continuing power to inspire successive generations of 

The new fall show examines some 60 illustrations and paintings by 
Pyle, his students, and members of the Wyeth family. Included are 
Andrew Wyeth's intimate views of the Maine coast, and many of 
Jamie Wyeth's paintings of rocky Monhegan Island. The exhibition 
runs through November 19. 

Brandywine River Museum, located on U.S. 1 in Chadds Ford, is 
open daily from 9 30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Guided tours are available 
to groups by reservation.

The Del Val Cross Country team won two out of three in a triple 
meet, beating Wilks and Albright, but losing to Philadelphia Textile. 
The leading runners for Delaware Valley were Matt Hengle, Vic 
Frey, Bruce Murphy, Chip Cowher and Freshman Gene Doyle. Also 
scoring for the first time this season were Russ Rising and Joe 

The Harriers had a slow start at 0-2. Last week they experienced 
their first win of the season bringing their record to 1-3. Now 
momentum seems to be gaining with this week's record of 3 and 4.

two games to the Muhlenberg Mules and the Ursinus Bears, 

These two games do not reflect the quality of this team. The indi-

believe they will start winning. For those who doubt it, come out

This past week has succeeded in bringing night 
life in ceruin dorms to a virtual standstill. Otherwise 
scholarly students sat huddled around flickering TV sets 
each night. All thoughts were focused on one program: 

Work accumulated like a tumbling avalanche on 
dust-smothered desks. Reading assignments cried for 
die-hard Yankees and Phillies enthusiasts and their respec- 
tive enemies. But the texts were merely thrown an occa- 
sional, guilt-ridden glance. Exams and lab quizzes loomed 
ominously on a cloudy horizon, but they were secondary 
to a cool October night, a horsehide ball, and a stadium of 
explosive spectators. The Empirical Formula was 
forced to wait as the fever pitch of pennant time per- 
formed Its entrancing work. 

Yes, the annual slugfest of October inflicted a 
temporary change on many students, allowing their true 
characters to be exposed. The dogmatic Yankees and 
Phillies fans were the obvious majority. Like six foot 
lemmings they migrated through the halls after each 
game, bellowing "We're number one!" or something to 
that effect. Each night early sleepers were suddenly jolted 
to consciousness by supporters of these teams, who 
engaged in verbal warfare with Royals and Dodgers fans. 
It must be pointed out that the latter were usually Royals 
and Dodgers fans only because the Yankees and Phillies 
took divisional titles over the Red Sox and Pirates. 

As if this were not bewildering enough, a third group 
confused things further by squatting in front of TV sets 
and cheering for the team that held the lead, or at least 
had the momentum on its side. They were staunch, 
lifetime Royals fans at 8:30 p.m. last Tuesday night. At 
precisely 9:00 p.m. they hollered with each Yankee base 

And, of course, there were also those still in mourn- 
ing over the New York Mets. 

Dorm life continues to experience this annual 
phenomona, and will apparently do so until the passing of 
the World Series next week. 


The class picnic on Sunday, September 17 at Oak 
Terrace Country Club had a turnout of about sixty 
people. A great time was had by ail who attended. 

Eastern Group Tours has been chosen as the agent 
for the senior class trip and the destinations have been 
finalized. Paradise Island, New Orleans, a short trip and 
possibly Jamaica are the choices which will be voted upon 
sometime toward the end of October in the cafeteria. I 
hope everyone will come out and voice their opinion 
when it counts. The short trip will be decided upon by 
those people who are interested, providing that there is 
enough interest. 

The class is also sponsoring the Halloween Dance on 
October 27th featuring 'Springfield'. All those who come 
dressed in a costume will receive '/j price off their ticket 
price, and cash prizes will be awarded for the best cos- 
tumes. So try to make it over to the gym with some Hal- 
loween spirit.

On September 29 & 30, Billy Joel was at the Spec- 
trum in Philadelphia. He has been touring to promote his 
"Stranger" album. He played to a full house of old and 
new fans. The stage was elaborately set with deep red and 
light blue plush carpeting, with instruments set all about, 
including two pianos at opposite sides of the stage. The 
lighting was extensive and dramatic which added to the 
total effect. Opening night he appeared on stage wearing a 
suit, tie and tennis sneakers as usual. His opening song was 
the title track "The Stranger" which was followed by 
many old and new favorites evenly disbursed throughout 
the evening. 

About the mid-point of the concert, Billy Joel 
announced the arrival of his latest album "S2nd Street", 
due to be out In about two weeks. Songs on this album 
include: Staletto, Honesty, and an up and coming hit 
"Big Shot" in which Billy doesn't play the piano until 
the very end of the song. Instead, he belts out the song 
and prances about the stage with white lights only adding 
to the effect of his accusation "you had to be a Big 

Billy Joel played twenty-six songs in a two and a 
half hour span, closing with encores of Miami 2017, 
CapUin Jack, Say Goodbye to Hollywood and, during 
the very last song, Billy Joel was alone on stage with 
only himself, the piano, and a spot light.

This column is for those beginning audiophiles or 
even those who just want to know the basics of high 
fidelity. Qudstions will be enteruined, as well as any 
problems that are solvable within the bailiwick of the 

This week's question, "What is power in an ampli- 

Power is an all encompassing term, and is often mis- 
leading. In terms of physics, power is equal to volts multi- 
plied by amperes. But in relation to audio, power is ex- 
pressed either as watts or decibels. This seems to confuse 
the issue further. 

A decibel is a relative unit of sound measurement. A 
difference of one decibel means twice the sound pressure, 
or how hard the air is moved by the speaker cone. One 
decibel is^the lowest level that the human ear can detect. 
110 decibels (db) is the sound level of a thunderclap, and 
1 30 db is the level of the average rock concert. Irreparable 
damage occurs to the ear at susuined levels of 85 db+ for 
one-half hour or more, Now, what does THIS mean? 

Well, for years, audiophiles have used watts as a 
measurement of power in amplifiers, but now decibles is 
being used more and more, as it is more accurate and 
easier to use, much like the metric system. Which term is 
better? For those audiophiles used to watts, then of 
course, It is easier. Most manufacturers today supply 
watts and decibels in their equipment specifications. 
Whichever you find easier, use it. The trend, however, is 
to decibels. 

Next week: "Gee, your stereo is loud, but what 
group is that?" 



Researching the library topic has taken longer than 
expected. I am sorry for the delay, but please keep 
watching for a response in next week's paper.

The parking lot arrangement is crazy! Resident 
students use the front half and their cars sit there all 
week (some even longer). Meanwhile, the people who 
drive to school every day have to park in the back and 
walk the entire length of the lot in snow, wind and rain. 

A suggestion has been made that two different 
parking stickers be issued, one for residents, one for 
commuters and that the residents be assigned spaces in 
the rear of the lot. This would make space in the front 
available for the people who drive daily. Thus making 
their walk a little shorter and their day a little brighter.

Parent's Day saw the Aggies lose yet another game, 
this time to Albright, joe Peliigrini and Dennis Ziemba 
combined for 200 yards rushing as Albright literally ran 
all over DVC. Near the end of the first quarter, Albright 
quarterback Bill DeNichois plunged in from the one to 
give Albright a 7-0 lead. 

In the second quarter, Dennis Ziembo ran 51 yards 
and Bill DeNichois scored his second touchdown to give 
Albright a commanding 21-0 lead. After a fumble re- 
covery, DVC scored tls only touchdown when Tom 
Kenny hit James Yazujian to make the score 21-6. 

The second half saw much of the same action as 
Albright dominated on the ground and in the air. Except 
for exceptional play by linebacker Tom Willey and punter 
Steve Fornoff, the Aggies were dormant to say the least. 
In the fourth quarter, Ziemba and Devine ran for touch- 
downs to end the scoring and the game 35-6. 

Recapping the game, Albright had constant success 
on the ground gaining good yardage at will. Some tale- 
telling sutistics are Albright 419 yards, DVC 58; First 
downs were Albright 27, DVC 7. 

During the most recent game, the Aggies bowed to 
undefeated Lycoming 21-7. Lycoming dominated the 
first half taking an early lead 21-0. 

In the second half, the Aggies came together by 
holding Lycoming scoreless and scored a touchdown 
themselves. But, again, as in the past, the Aggies organ- 
ized themselves a little too late, and lost yet another.

There were fine performances from the Del Val 
ladies, especially Annette White who played excellent 
offense and defense. 

Ten minutes into the game, Irene Costa scored for 
the Aggies and the defense remained tough holding the 
score to a 1-0 lead at the half. 

The second half opened with a critical save by DVC's 
Gail Fuicoiy, and with 15 minutes elapsed, the Aggies 
took a 2-0 lead on a goal by Mary Ann Horst. 

Wilkes Immediately struck back closing the gap, 2-1. 

DVC warded off three fierce offensive penetrations 
by Wilkes before the opposition tied the game. 

The Aggies' record now stands at 0-3-1.

Living in a dorm, one has ample opportunity 
to witness diverse methods of study and concen- 
tration. Most students prepare for tests In conven- 
tional ways, slouched In a chair with book and 
notes in hand. But htere are those who engage In 
their studies in manners that are truly worthy of 

The most amusing are students who adhere to 
their "How to Study" manuals like a patriot to the 
constitution. Following chapters such as "Proper 
Time For Study", "Proper Position For Study", 
and "Proper Weather For Study" to the letter, 
they can generally be found in an eternal search 
for nooks and crannies as tranquil as a cemetary. 

In contrast are those who study away while 
the stereo slowly proceeds to loosen the plaster on 
the celling. They dwell under the presumption that 
"music helps me think." Their concentration Is 
rivalled only by that of the TV bug, who. In an 
effort to catch all of his favorite shows, feverishly 
attempts to cram In 1,00 pages of notes during 

Lastly there are the tree sitters. They have 
been encouraged by college catalogue covers, 
which usually depict students cheerily smiling over 
economics texts as they learn beneath a giant oak 
on the campus green. So the tree sitters have taken 
the Initiative to sit among the horsechestnut shells 
and ginko seeds themselves. 

The results of these study methods are ques- 
tionable. Undoubtable, there are only a handful 
of people who can concentrate under any condi- 
tions and still "ace" the exam. Whatever their 
secrets are, I wish I were one of them.

Dear Editor, 

Last week I was In the library looking for a 
book by a specific author (an expert in the area 
of my seminar topic) and I found that the book 
had been stolen. Looking through the lists of 
magazine articles, I found an article I hoped I 
could use, but the Issue I needed (plus several 
others) had been stolen. Now I hear that the 
school feels that the cost of books stolen does not 
balance out with the cost of installing an electron- 
ic alarm system to protect those books. Does the 
school think books are only worth the numbers 
printed on the cover? This Is a school - that is 
supposed to be a library! 

N. Jordan 


When I received your letter, I, like many other 
students, immediately jumped to the conclusion 
that the library did need an electronic book-theft 
detection system. I made some calculations with 
some information supplied to me by Mrs. Shook, 
the head librarian, and the student handbook. 
The apparent dollar loss (and let me emphasize 
apparent) seemed to more than offset the expense 
of an alarm system, but a few ideas from the 
results of a study conducted recently changed 

First, our library has a very low book loss rate 
compared to the national average for college librar- 
ies. Over a two-year period, our library lost only 
around two percent of its collection compared to 
the average eight to nine percent annually for 
other schools. This could very well be due to the 
fact that the campus is smaller and more person- 
able than the larger schools. 

Secondly, whether anyone has noticed or not, 
the library has made an attempt to reduce theft 
rates. As a trial program, the library has Increased 
its staff by an additional member so as to have 
supervision in the periodical area continuously. 
The effect will be analyzed at the end of the 
school year. 

Thirdly, the library was not architectually de- 
signed for the installation of an alarm system. 
Because of this, detection equipment would have 
to be external. Most of these involve a turnstyle 
which would hamper the mobility of the handi- 
capped, a consideration which is now important in 
any new facilities on campus as prescribed by law. 

Fourthly, if students would use a little bit of 
thoughtfulness, we would not even have the prob- 
lem at hand. Many book thefts are not deliberate. 
A moment of not thinking can cause a person to 
walk out without signing out a book, but t am not 
denying that there are deliberate thefts. If these 
people would put themselves in a position of 
someone needing reference materials which were 
stolen, they may realize the gross discourtesy that 
they are commiting in addition to the actual value 
of the theft. 

Please be aware that this is not a dead Issue 
with the administration. Mrs. Work has assured me 
that if the situation gets to the extent that it war- 
rants an electronic system, the school will indeed 
Invest In one. We have now, however, a situation 
in which our book losses are lower than what the 
best electronic detection system can effect In one 
of the "average" libraries. It Is therefore up to you 
to keep It that way.

Last week this column discussed the differ- 
ence between watts and decibels. This week's topic 
was supposed to be on distortion in amplifiers, but 
due to an oversight, this week's column is devoted 
to more on power. 

Whenever the prospective audiophile goes into 
his or her local audio-supermarket (which most of 
them are), they are confronted by a vast array of 
components to choose from, and each has a multi- 
tude of specifications. One of these associated 
with power is RMS. The other commonly used 
term is peak power. These two specifications are 
important ones, and when interpreted correctly, 
can mean a lot. 

RMS, for Real Mean Square, is a function of a 
sine wave over a continuous period of time. It 
gives an average of how much power an amplifier 
will delTver. It is usually expressed as so many 
watts per channel RMS. It does not tell what the 
maximum capabilities of the amplifier are. Peak 
power, however, will tell the audio-phile what the 
maximum capability of the amplifier is, and is ex- 
pressed as so many watts per channel peak power. 

These tow numbers can mean a good deal. 
Since the Federal Trade Commission requires that 
all specifications on high-fidelity components be 
minimum, many components are under-rated. A 
50-watt receiver, for example, may be putting out 
55 watts RMS, and up to 60-65 watts peak power. 
This means that if your speakers are rated for 55 
watts RMS, you may find your speaker cones im- 
bedded in the opposite wall. When choosing speak- 
ers and amplifiers, make sure the speakers can 
handle the probable peaks of power of the ampli- 


in response to the many queries about the 
price of lunch in the Segal Hall Snack Bar, we have 
looked into the situation for commuter lunches at 
the David Levin Dining Hall. Most people do not 
realize that lunch is available for ALL students at 
the dining hall. For a mere $1.75 (payable at the 
door) a hearty lunch can be yours. 

A typical menu includes a salad, choice of 
main courses (seconds, if you want 'em) desert 
and beverages including coffee, a variety of soft 
drinks and milk. Nutritious, somewhat delicious, 
and you can't beat the price.

To help this college publication meet a 
broadening range of appeals, it has been suggested 
that a column be submitted regularly to encourage 
the reader to re-evaluate his role as a student at 
Delaware Valley College, whether as a member of 
a sport, team, club, or an organization, and as a 
person. It is hoped that this approach will act as an 
outreach to those who may be confused or frus- 
trated by such matters as studies, habits, occupa- 
tions, parents, friends, and the future. Few people 
live such a peaceful and perfect life that there is 
not some time when they find themselves "lost in 
the blues," Realizing and sharing the burden are 
crucial components in developing the solution. 
Please feel free to share any questions, burdens, 
and thoughts with me by way of the Post Office

The Delaware Valley Cross Country Team 
improved its overall seaK>n record to 4 wins and 6 
losses with its 23 to 38 victory over Moravian 
College. Senior Captain Vic Frey recorded his first 
victory of the season with a 29:33 clocking over 
the rain soaked 5.2 mile Del Val Course. Moravian 
College which has just reinstituted its cross 
country pr<^ram this year copped only second and 
third place out of the top 10 places. Other Aggies 
finishing in the top ten were Chip Cowher fourth, 
Bruce Murphy fifth, Matt Hengel sixth. Gene 
Doyle seventh, Chris Bradley eighth, Russ Rising 
ninth, and Gil Schieber tenth. 

The Harriers next meet Kings College and 
Spring Garden College next Saturday at home. 
This will be Homecoming Day, and the race will 
start and finish in the James Work Memorial 
Stadium during the football game. 


On Tuesday, October 10, the Delaware Valley 
Women's Field Hockey team experienced their 
first win of the season by crushing Drew Univer- 
sity in Madison, New jersey, 6-1. 

The first goal for the aggies was by freshman 
center, Donna Cassano. Mid way through the first 
half, Drew tied the score but this was all the Del 
Val women would allow. Miss Ca^ano followed 
the Drew score, netting her second goal of the 
game, and with 1 seconds remaininf in the half, 
Brenda Wolf made it Del Val 3, Drew 1 . 

The second half proved to be fatal to Drew 
with two early goals by the outstanding center 
halfback, Annette White. Rightwing sophomore. 
Sue Ann Leed, a former hockey player for 
Cocalico High School, Denver, Pa., compounded 
the lethal dose by scoring the sixth and final goal 
for DVC. 

And on rainy Saturday, October 14, the Lary 
Aggies controlled the offensive fiow of their game 
against the Penn State Ogantz Nittanty Lions, but 
were only able to attain a 1-1 tie. The lone DVC 
score came from Donna Cassano. 

The team has three home games remaining.

ing, and Fairleigh Dickinson respectively. Put your

On a rain-soaked field and bad weather most 
of the day, the Aggies lost their fifth straight to 
the tough Vikings of Upsala 10-6. However, the 
Aggies played exceptional defense and rose to the 
occasion time after time. It was the offense who 
could not capitalize on good field position and 
consequently, not enough point scoring. 

The first half was relatively close, which pro- 
duced no scoring. In the second half. Bill Mullen 
ran 49 yards giving the Aggies a 6-0 lead. After a 
fumble recovery, Upsala scored to take the lead 
7-6. Upsala recovered another fumble and ended 
the scoring with a field goal 1 0-6. 

In the final analysis, the Aggie defense did the 
job but, the offense failed to put the needed 
points on the scoreboard. 

The formal dedication of the James Work 
Memorial Stadium will take place on Homecoming 
Saturday, the 21st.

Extra Points The two remaining home games 
are against FDU Madison and Susquehanna on 
Homecoming. Both of these teams have not won a 
game. Both have considerably worse statistics than 
DVC. Guess what might happen? Don't miss these 
games. The stands should be full and cheering. 

Two DVC players have made the top ten in 
the Northern Division of the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference. Dave Jefferson is second in receiving and 
Steve Furnoff is fourth in punting.

Don Tollefson of Channel 6 Action News crowns Caria 
Boyd Homecoming Queen for 1978 during half-time 

by Paul Sunziale 

This year signs were posted around the campus, 
"Homecoming is Great in '78" and indeed it was with our 
Footbail, Soccer, Cross Country, and Womens Fieid 
Hockey teams all competing at home last Saturday, 
October 21. 

Starting on Friday, at 7 30 p.m. there was a pep 
rally in front of the Agriculture Building. Speeches were 
heard from coaches and alumni. The candidates for home- 
coming queen were introduced and the new queen Caria 
Boyd was announced. 

Most people after the pep rally went in small groups 
and partied while others worked on preparing the floats 
for the parade. 

Saturday morning opened up at 10:00 with the 
homecoming parade through Doylestown to the college. 
At 11:00 the soccer team started on their way to their 
first win while the field hockey team tied Lycoming. 
These two events were followed by the formal dedication 
of the lames Work Memorial Sudium with special guest 
Don Tollefson of Channel 6 News who was the Master of 
Ceremonies. Later the Cross Country team attained a 
double win and the football team provided an exciting 
game but were unable to win. . 

The remainder of the day was spent studying by 
some and celebrating the wins by most. Over all, the Del 
Val campus displayed more spirit than it has in the past 
few years.

Work Remains Undefeated!! 

Work remains the only undefeated team after barely 
passing the Trojans 14-13 last Thursday October 19th. 
Defense on both sides was tough with both sides remain- 
ing scoreless in the 1st half. The Trojans scored first early 
in the 2nd half. Trojans kicked off to Work who could 
not get a hold on the ball. The Trojans dropped on the 
bail In the end zone for a touchdown - 15 seconds had 
elapsed. Defense remained strong throughout the 2nd 
half with the Trojans on top. Late in the 2nd half Work 
scored to take the lead and keep it to win. Congratula- 
tions go to both teams for a well-played and exciting 
game. Trojans are defending the Championship title. 


The Senior Class will conduct an important meeting 
on Tuesday, October 31 in The Allman Building at 8 p.m. 
A committee recently went down to Paradise Island. They 
will show slides of the Holiday Inn, Paradise Island, and

the trip, the travel agent, present ideas of what there is to 
do, and answer all your questions. All seniors are encour- 
aged to attend this meeting. 

On Wednesday and Thursday, November 1st and 
2nd, voting for the Senior Class Trip will be conducted 
during the two lunch periods in the cafeteria. When vot- 
ing, please keep in mind: 

1 ) We do not expect the short trip to win. However, we 
do want to have an idea of the amount of interest 
there is for a short trip. If there is enough interest, 
the trip will be pursued and the destination will be 
decided upon by those planning to go on It. 

2) The price we received, $244 based on 2 ptr room, 
is for 4 days and 3 nights. For an extra $22, we can 
stay an extra day, making the trip 5 days and 4 
nights. When voting, please put a 4 or a 5 in the 
ballot space to indicate whether you want to stay 4 
or 5 days. Majority rules! We will not have 2 groups 
leaving on different days.

Dorm rooms often seem plain and unfinished. House 
plants can give the room a more lived in appearance, how- 
ever, conditions are usually less than ideal for healthy 
growth. Lack of light Is often a major problem. 

Plants tolerant of shade (North windowslli) include 
Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema), Pothos (Scindapsus), Ivy 
(Hedera Helix), Philodendron (several species). Ferns 
(Pterls and others), Snake plant (Sansevieria), and Grape 
Ivy (Cissus). Even these plants need a little sunlight for 
best growth. 

For a sunny windowsill, plants such as Rebutia 
(several species of this cactus), Crassula (several species), 
Peperomia (many species), Oleander (Nerium), Screw Pine 
(PandanusJlg Parsley Aralia (Poiyscias), and Crown of 
Thorns (Euphorbia) will thrive. Many species of Begonia, 
Haworthia, and Aloe will grow well If given some sunlight. 

So, for a homier room, plants are just the thing and 
you can purchase many of the species mentioned at local 
Garden Centers. 


We received the following letter; 

Dear Commuter Corner, 

I don't think enough consideration is given to the 
commuting student. At the beginning of the fall semester 
there were insufficient book store hours. DVC doesn't 
take into consideration that a commuter can't be on 
campus all the time. I had the experience of having the 
door of the book store slammed in my face because i was 
a minute late. The houn were inadequate - being brief 
and at awkward times of the day. 

Also the used book store was of little help It never 
had the specific times posted, only what day It would be

Dear Mr. Maurer, 

We checked with Mr. Woiford who is in charge of 
the book store about your complaint. His reply was 
"there is a schedule, we go by the schedule, we recognize 
there will always be complaints." We then went to the 
book store to check the hours and they seemed more than 
adequate. The first two days of the semester, the hours 
were 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. For the following 3 weeks the hours 
were 11:15-12:15, 4 30-9:00. Thereafter, the hours were 
Wed. 9-1 and 2-4:30. 

As far as the used book store goes, It is run by APO 
(not the school), it is a club activity and is run on a volun- 
teer basis. 

If you still feel the hours for the regular book store 
are not addquate, contact your Commuter Rep., Meg

As leaves abscise and tumble ritualistically to their 
deterioration, it is evident that time sails on. Each of us, 
be we freshmen, sophomores, juniors, or seniors, are 
approaching the time when we no longer will have college 
to keep us occupied. Many of us head on. it Is a comfort 
to know, however, that we can regulate the force of this 
Impact if we uke more than a passive stance. 

The phase suting that college should be the best 
four years of one's life does not necessarily mean that It 
Is a time of continuous fun and games. We must learn to 
budget our time and separate the work from the play. It 
must be a pl-actical budget that allows plenty of time for 
work. It is Important to accept the responsibilities we 
encounter, with a determined heart. If we put off labor 
today, we will have no fruit for tomorrow. It has been the 
desire of many to "goof-off" today and relish success 
tomorrow. This is rarely possible. The most unlearned 
plowman knows that In order to reap the harvest tomor- 
row, he must cultivate and sow the seed today. We can 
not be continually reaping the harvest. One of the most 
difficult disciplines to conquer is learning to work in the 
present and look forward to a successful and well-struc- 
tured future. 

Accept the responsibilities of today, in order to meet 
the challenges of tomorrow. If you have any thoughts, 
questions, or burdens to offer, please leave them at the 
Post Office window, addressed to: Share c/o Collegian.

Homecoming '78 started out with the final dedica- 
tion of the lames Work Memorial Stadium. This great 
event was enhanced with beautiful weather, and the larg- 
est crowd of the season, which was the most enthusiastic 
I might add. 

The main event saw the Aggies open up Impressively 
against Susquehanna. In their first possession and seven 
plays later, Ron Haraka plunged in from the one to give 
the Aggies an early 7-0 lead. Two minutes later, Steve 
Furnoff faked a punt and tossed a 38-yard touchdown 
pass to Phil Boob making the score 14-0. Susquehanna 
closed the gap with a touchdown, but missed the extra 
point to end the first quarter 14-6. The only scoring of 
the second quarter was by Susquehanna knotting the 
score at 14-14. 

In the fourth quarter, after an Aggie interceptton by 
Keith Sipple, joe Laumakis rambled 80 yards to put the 
Aggies out in front 20-14. However, the extra point 
failed which would later prove to be a deciding factor. 
And later did come. With 2:36 left to play, Susquehanna 
scored the deciding touchdown, and converted the extra 
point for their first victory of the season 21-20. 
SPECIAL NOTE: Senior runningback )0E LAUMAKIS 
set a new school, single game rushing record of 200 yards 
on 22 carries. Let's hear It for Joe and all the Aggies. 
They haven't given up; have you?

Last Thursday, October 19, the field hockey team 
remained on the winning track by defeating the Scranton 
Uniwrsity Royals, 3-1. Brenda Wolf and Donna Cassano 
provided the first-half goals for DVC to make the score 2- 
2-0. In the second half, the Roylas' Ronnie Pratt tighten- 
ed the score with 9:33 remaining but a shot credited to 
Annette White which deflected off a Royal's stick final- 
ized the scoring making It 3-1. The win was the first In 
over three years on Alumni Field by any A^ie team. 

In Saturday's event against Lycoming, the Home- 
coming spirit was with goalie Linda Budrewicz when she 
stopped what could have been the winning goal for 
Lycoming. The defenses of both DVC and Lycoming were 
exceptional allowing just one goal each with the only 
Aggie score coming from Sue Ann Leed early in the first 


by Paul Stenziaie 

The first Del Val SoCcer team win was celebrated last 
Saturday, October 21 (Homecoming) when John Fucoly 
and Chris Witson combined to give the Aggies a 2-0 vic- 
tory over Lycoming. November 4 is the final home game 
for the team against Wilkes College. 

C.C 6-6 

by Paul Stanzlale 

The magic of Homecoming '78 was carried over to 
the Cross Country team when they evened their record at 
6-6 by beating Kings and Spring Garden College before a 
crowd of over 3000 DVC fans. There was a dramatic 
finish for first in the 5.2 mile race when Del Val capuin, 
Vic Frey pulled away in the last 600 yards to finish 6 
seconds ahead of Kings' African exchange student, 
Francis Awanya. Other top 10 Del Val Harrier finishers 
were Bruce Murphy third. Gene Doyle fifth. Matt Hengle 
sixth, Chip Cowher seventfi, Joe Gilbert eights, Chris 
Bradley ninth, and Rich Weidman tenth. The final scores 
were DVC 15 Spring Garden 50; DVC 22 Kings 39. Next 
Saturday the Aggies meet Swathmore and Muhlenberg at 
Muhlengerg College in Allentown.

Jeff Bartholomew. DVC's 6*3" 290 lb heavyweight 
wrestler, took 1st Place at the Middle Atlantic AAU 
Championships last weekend at Lower Dauphin High 
School in Harrisburg. 

Jeff Is only a sophomore and already has proved that 
he Is one of the best In the Middle Atlantic Conference. 
As a freshman Jeff had a dual meet record of 15-2-0 and 
took 2nd place last year in the MAC. Coach Marshall feels 
Jeff will be an outstanding wrestler if he continues to 
dedicate himself to the sport. 

Also, Mike Danis, DVC MAC Champion last year at 
167 moved up a weight class and placed second at 177. 
Mike will be back at 167 for the regular season. It was not 
a bad showing for the DVC wrestlers being that only 3 
wrestlers from DVC entered the tournament.

The Student Government holds weekly meetings in 
the S.G. Room in Work Hall. Many students are not aware 
of this, in spite of the good publicity. It would be to your 
benefit if you were to attend a meeting as a trial. You will 
find that the students involved take an active stand towards 
the solution of any problem put before them. They can 
accomplish an incredible amount of service for the school 
body. Take advantage of this energetic toot by sharing 
your suggestions and complaints with your class repre- 
sentatives. They are there to serve you. Don't relinquish 
the opportunities you have to use the tools that you 
elected into office. 

Shown from Left to Right are Joe Miale, Mike Ridge,

Many people put a lot of time and effort into the 
Homecoming preparations, which begin at the end of the 
previous Spring Semester. 

The main events, however, began with the Judging 
foi* the Queen on Thursday night. Friday saw a Pep 
Rally, and late Into the evening the Clubs worked on 
their Floats and Spirit Cars. On Saturday morning 
the traditional parade through Doylestown was held. 
Then, the game was played. Oh well, there's always 
next year! The new Stadium was dedicated and to top off 
a wonderful weekend, the Homecoming Semi-formal was 
held in the gym. The food, the band and the decorations 
were great!

Perhaps the most influential movie to hit campus 
this year is the madcap comedy "Animal House." Al- 
though the true aesthetic value of this film is highly 
debatable, it is safe to say that it has persuaded stu- 
dents to do some unusual things. 

The most noticable change has been the sudden 
upswing in white-robed figures wearing imitation olive 
wreaths in their hair. Many people considered it the 
ultimate oddity to see an ill-clad hippie in the '60's 
shouting "Peace! Peace! Peace!" But this unusual figure 
has now been replaced by the increasingly popular chan- 
ter of "To-gal To-ga! To-gal", who insists on wearing only 
a sheet and sandals in the thirty degree night. 

Another unusual occurrence which the film helped 
to spur is the exposure of man's primal instinct to hurl 
objects at his fellow human. This was made apparent in 
a recent outbreak of warfare which took place in the 
cafeteria. For several minutes the air became a swirling 
sea of dinner rolls, salad, potatoes, and jello. Despite 
the gravy and soda stains on their clothing, the partici- 
pants emerged from the battle feeling that they had 
undergone one of the greatest experiences of their lives. 

Finally, "Animal House" has driven some students 
to inflict bodily injury upon themselves. I speak of the 
practice of flattening empty cans against one's fore- 
head in a single stroke. For some reason, the performers 
find this stunt even more amusing than do the spectators. 

When this current obsession with "Animal House" 
will stop nobody knows. What will occur in future weeks 
one can only guess at. Let's just hope it stops before 
students take the initiative to turn themselves into "zits."

Within our own campus boundaries are many tal- 
ented and gifted students. Technically and logically 
speaking, each person enrolled at Delaware Valley College 
of Science and Agriculture has at least one particular 
gift or talent. It is not necessary to enter into the periph- 
ery, and state that each human on this earth has one 
or more gifts of his own. This column is focused on the 
unity of the Del-Val populus. And, unity is the word to 
be stressed. 

If we were to pool our various skills and aptitudes 
into the blender of motivation we would marvel at the 
glorious results. However, it is obtaining this willing 
unit that is so difficult. It could be that we are individ- 
ually locked within the fallacy of limitations. Knocked 
about by the mockery, and detoured by the crutches of 
our friends, we are fearful of the possibility of failure. We 
all know that the best solution to failure is to not get in- 
volved. Because we don't get involved, nothing is ac- 
complished. The key to success is involvement. You can 
help your friends by^ concentrating your attention and 
remarks on their good points. This will encourage them to 
exercise these abilities and thereby better develop them. 
An interesting thought that applies to this article is: 
It's better to try and fail than to fall to try. Anon. 

Do yourself a favor by stepping out of the cage of 
limitations, into the garden of potentialities. Please 
feel free to share any questions, burdens, and thoughts

We have conducted an Investigation concerning an 
earlier Commuter Comer article about the parking lot 

We first spoke with Dean Tasker who directed us 
to Or. Feldsteln. Dr. Feldstein informed us that the 
parking lot comes under the Maintenance Department 
and the Maintenance Department is under the direction 
of Mrs. Work. Although Mrs. Work is in charge, Or. 
Feldsteln was able to supply us with some useful Infor- 
mation, v^lthout having to run all around the campus. 

The information we received Is as follows. The 
administration is aware of the parking problem here on 
campus. The problem is being looked Into, (Fanustic) 
There are no immediate plans to improve the parking 
facilities. Why? Two big reasons, the first of course 
being money and the second being location. The ad- 
ministration Is supposedly looking Into a location for 
a second student parking lot that would not marr the 
appearance of our campus. 

The suggestion of group designated parking, (on 
campus In the rear, off campus in the front), was pro- 
posed to Dr. Feldstein and a student government mem- 
ber. Dr. Feldstein said he would look into that type of 
system. The student government member showed no In- 
terest. After all, they only represent us. 

According to the October 23rd student gowmment 
minutes, there are plans to repave the existing parking 
lot Also they ask us to keep it clean. HEY STUDENT 
GOVERNMENT! The commuters have no reason to buy 
beer and drive all the way to DVC to leave the bottles 
in the lot. It ain't our mess; we have to drive throu^ 
it every day.

The Aoies traveled to lunlata hoping to obtain 
their first win, and to knock Juniata out of conten- 
tion for the MAC Championship. 

Juniata struck first when DeWayne Rideout ran four 
yards capping a 45 yard touchdown drive. In the second 
quarter Juniata exploded for two quick touchdowns. The 
first a 14 yard run by Dave Headly and, the second a 
6 yard run by Oe Wayne Rideout. Juniata took a com- 
manding lead 21-0. Late in the quarter John Ledva re- 
covered a fumble for O.V.C. on the Juniata 9 yard line. 
Then, Ron Harada hit Divt Jefferson in the end-zone 
to cut the margin to 21-7. 

The second half started out to D.V.C.'s liking when 
Jim Ducan recovered a fumble on the Juniata 24 yard 
line. Se\«n plays later Bill Mullen plunged in from the 
one to cut the lead even more 21-14. The final scoring 
attempt of the pme was by D.V.C. but, an interception 
cancelled their hopes as they fell short 21-14. 
SPECIAL NOTES: Dave Jefferson is first in tfie Northern 
Division of the MAC in receiving with 1 7 receptions for 
253 yards. Bill Mullen is second in rushing with 95 carries 
for 302 yards. For those who did'nt know, we are In

top scorer for the team until injured two weeks ago, 
were not able to finish the race due to their injuries. 

The Harriers next meet Susquehanna University on 
Wednesday followed by the Conference Championship 
Meet on Saturday.

The Del Val lady Aggies took the field against 
Falrieigh Dickinson College on October 25, at Delaware 
Valley College, facing a do or die situation, to get into 
the Middle Atlantic Conference Championships (M.A.C.'s). 

DVC opened up with a drive and score by right wing 
Sue Ann Leed but before the excitment of the first goal 
wore off, Joanne King of Fairleigh tied the score after an 
impressive drive. Fairleigh Dickinson scored once more 
making It 2-1 at the half. 

Early in the second half the Aggies offense did not 
perform up to par, falling to capitalize on any scoring 
opportunities. Finally with about one quarter of the 
game remaining, the ladies experienced what they call 
a Big MAC Atuck, (MAC being Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference Championships) when Benda Wolfe assisted by 
Donna Cassano gave the Aggies their third conference 
tie and fourth overall tie of the season. 

The tie enabled the Delaware Valley Womens Field 
Hockey team to clinch second place in the Northern 
Division of the Middle Atlantic Conference and a play- 
off spot last Monday, October 30, against Elizabethtown 
College, the first place team of the Southern Division. 
If the ladies beat Elizabethtown, they will advance to 
the finals held at F&M. 

Also last week. In their final regular season game, 
October 27 the Aggies played their first shutout of the 
year against Cedar Crest College in Alientown, Pa. A fine 
defensive performance by goal keeper Linda Buderwicz 
coincided with scores by Brenda Wolfe, Mary Ann Horst, 
and Sue Ann Leed to give the Aggies a 3-0 shutout. 
Miss Leed has scored In each of the last three regular 
season games. 

The final regular season record for the Del Val 
women is 3-3-4 for a .500 winning percentage. 
SPECIAL NOTE: Senior Cindy Duton Played for final 
home game for DVC.

Sunday morning in the dorm is a time of unusual 
quiet. The hall is a still, empty corridor lacking all traces 
of life except for great piles of bottles, cans, and stinking 
garbage heaped in front of overflowing waste baskets. 
Occasionally the student may see a few souls lingering 
about, who for unknown reasons, have risen at 8:30 to 
visit the dining hall. By the time most have crawled out of 
their beds, however, breakfast is past history. The student 
stumbles into the hall as a swarm of ever present dorm 
mascots, otherwise known as houseflies, slips into his 
room. He heads for the shower. Then, after partially re- 
covering from the night before, he is ready to face a stack 
of texts and catch up on the never-ending assignments. A 
radio plays softly as he stares into the future, seriously 
wondering if Sunday will ever be a day of rest again.

It's the bewitching season and witches' brooms are 
flourishing at the Morris Arboretum of the University of 

These oddities of nature can be seen on hackberry 
trees, larches and many conifers. Their eerie quality 
probably gave them the name of witches' brooms, but 
scientists found a way to use these malformations. 

Because many of these sections of branches are 
genetically dwarfed, scientists can clone twigs from them 
to develop dwarf species of the parent plant. Examples 
of this can be seen in the dwarf conifer collection at the 
Arboretum in Chestnut Hill, In which several of the 
specimens were propagated by this method. 

A witches' broom Is a compact mass of twigs which 
results from irregular growth of a tree's bud. Sometimes, 
this growth is an accidental mutation; other times it is the 
result of a disease. 

When we see these broom-like clusters of twigs, our 
imaginations take flight and we envision witches riding 
across a full-mooned autumn sky. To botanists, witches' 
brooms provide constant inspiration for scientific re- 
search. For example, there were only 10 species of dwarf 
evergreens 140 years ago. Today, they number in the 
thousands; largely due to this cloning process. 

In an urban or small garden, dwarfed plants are play- 
ing an increasingly important role. It is through botanical 
research in our arboreta that many of the oddities of the 
plant world can be explained and utilized.

Mealy bu^ are a common Insect pest on many 
species of houseplants. Clusters of Mealy bugs appear as 
white, cottony patches. They are most frequently seen on 
new growth on the underddes of tfte leaves, and the 
stems. However, roots are also sometimes infested. They 
cause damage by sucking out the plant's sap, thereby 
weakening the plant. 

When just a few plants are Involved, a small paint 
brush dipped in rubbing alcohol and applied to the cot- 
tony patches will kill the Mealy bugs. If root Mealy bugs 
are suspected, remove the soil ball from tt\t pot and ex- 
amine the roots. If root Mealy bugs are found, it is best to 
take cuttings and discard the original plant. On larger 
numbers of plants, an aerosol insecticide spray containing 
pyrethrin will provide reasonable good control. A mala- 
thlon spray and dip is an effective control, although it is 
usually too difficult and smelly for use indoors. 

Not all plants are equally susceptible to Mealy bug 
infestations. Nerve plant (Fittonia) and Coleusare among 
the more susceptible species. More resistant plants include 
snake plant (Sansevieria), most Brorifflllads (plants in Pine- 
apple family), and Crown of Thorns (Euphorbia Splen- 

it is Important to keep in mind that totally eradi- 
cating Mealy bugs is almost impossible. However, these 
treatments will keep Mealy bugs under control, providing 
they are used regularly.

The Chemistry Department of Delaware Valley 
College sponsored an honors program in "Laboratory 
Techniques in Chemistry", on November 6, 1978. A 
toul of 20 chemistry students from C.B. East, C.B. 
West, New Hope-Solebury, William Tehnent and Penn- 
ridge High Schools participated in the program. 

The objectives of the program were to cooperate 
with the participating high schools in the teaching of 
modern applied chemistry. 

The students were divided into two groups and they 
participated in a total of five experiments which repre- 
sented the various areas of chemistry. 

The program is designed to stimulate the interest of 
high school students in careers in science by exploring the 
use of science in the solution of everyday problems. It 
also was an opportunity for each student to familiarize 
themselves with the academic atmosphere of a college 
level chemistry environment.

President Carter has signed the student-aid bill that 
will open Basic Educationat Opportunity Grants (BEOG's) 
to 1.5 million middle-Income students and allow about 
450,000 students from mid- and upper-middle Income 
families to qualify for interest subsidies on Guarantee 
Student Loans. The President signed the bill (now Public 
Law 95-566) on November 6th. 

The middle-income aid law will make students from 
families with incomes up to $25,000 (for a family of four 
with one child in college) eligible for BEOG's In the 
1979-80 academic year. The eligibility ceiling Is now 
around $15,000. It will provide In-schooi Interest sub- 
sidles on Guarantee Student Loans for students from 
families in all Income ranges, removing the $25,000 
Income ceiling which has been effect. And it expands the 
campus based Supplemental Educational Opportunity 
Grants and College Work Study programs to reach middle- 
income students.

Is anyone looking for an innovative new way to 
gamble without waiting for the race results to come In or 
the football game to end? Try wagering on the chance of 
getting an unused washing machine between the hours of 
four and ten p.m. Anyone who beats the odds will be In 
for a spectacular payoff. 

Many a student has experienced the dismay of 
trudging to the basement of Ullman Hall with twenty 
pounds of festering laundry, only to find all of the ma- 
chines in use, sometimes by one person, who needs a 
separate washer for his/her exotic Parisian knits delicate 
Asian silks, and the like. 

Consequentiy, the laundry bag is stuffed back into 
its closet to sit another day, much to the disgust of both 
persons occupying the dorm room. 

To some this is a familiar scene. Of course, to others 
it reeks of pure nonsense. But the latter are of that almost 
mythical class that is blessed with eternal good luck; the 
type that wins five free games on one play of the pinball 
machine, that always fill their limit when hunting, al- 
though they can't tell the stock from the barrel of the 
gun, and the kind that get a washer on the first try 
without falling. 

All other wretched souls must usually restrict their 
washing to the late hours of the night, or early morning. 
By then it is more often than not possible to find a 
washer and dryer minus an 'out of order' sign, and the 
temperature and hunidlty In the laundry room have 
settied down to a comfortable 80 "F and 90%, respectively. 

By the way, if you happen to be one of those people 
who has experienced good luck about once in the past 
year, take heart. There's always the bathroom sink.

After an absence, the column's back again. This 
week's topic is distortion and what types of distortion 
there are. 

The definition of distortion is any undeslred chanp 
in the waveform of a signal. When a single frequency, or 
sine wave is fed through an amplifier, any distortion that 
the amplifier adds will appear on an oscilloscope as jagged 
edges on the wave. These rough edges are multiples of the 
input frequency, and known as harmonics. The sum of all 
the harmonics and hum and noise inherent in the amplifier 
circuits Is known as THD or Total Harmonic Distortion. 

If two tones are used as the test signal, the dis- 
tortion parts at frequencies which are the sums and dif- 
ferences of the harmonics of the input tones. Their sum 
Is expressed as IM or Inter-Modulation Distortion, which 
is worse to listen to. 

There are other types of distortion such as TIM or 
Transient Inter-Modulation Distortion, and slew rate, 
but because the human ear cannot readily discern them, 
they are of no consequence to the beginning audiophlle. 

Next week - which is better, 20 watts at .5% THD 
or 10,000 watu at .5% THD? 

Dear Editor: 

This is my second full year as a student at DVC. 
Having come as a transfer student with credits from 
two other major universities, I appreciate the uniqueness 
of Del Val's resources, the excellence and helpfuilness of 
its faculty and staff. 

My only complaint so far is that the library, which 
houses a fine collection in an architecturally pleasing 
setting, is not really set up for study. My study hours are 
limited, as is study space at home. I need the library, and 
depend on it as a resource for quiet study several hoMts a 
day. It seems I lose part of almost every study sestion to 
frustration at the noise around me, and finally annoyance 
at having to request quiet, from people who are usually 
more than willing to comply. 

I spoke with the head Librarian, Mrs. Shook about 
the situation. She felt that people do need a place to work 
together, and that there are few places on campus. She 
also suggested the music listening rooms as an alternative 
to the upstairs study carrels for someone who is easily 
distractable (me). She agreed, too, that there might be a 
need for more carrels, rather than tables. 

I would like to suggest that one area be designated a 
place for working together. I propose the table area in the 
library basement, where people may talk causing dis- 
traction to fewer people than conversation upstairs, where 
there are more carrels located in such a way as to pick up 
noise from all parts of the room and central hallway. 
Segal Hall basement could also serve as a place for group 
study with littie inconvenience to others. 

I would like to suggest also that students be a littie 
more thoughtful and the librarians a littie more conscious 
of unnecessary conversation. I'm sure no one is deliber- 
ately thoughtiess of the needs of others around them. We 
all forget at times how our small actions may affect others. 

I need the library, and don't want to play Police 
Woman, or make enemies, but my study time Is valuable, 
and I am asking others to respect it. 

Sincerely yours, 
S. L. Moore

To provoke a few laughs, It may be said that the 
students of Delaware Valley College of Science and 
Agriculture have a strong affinity for their campus pro- 
fessors. However, as disheartening and infortunate as it is 
true, the associations between the faculty and the stu- 
dent body are often limited to the minutes set aside for 
class period. Visitors are quite surprised by this fact when 
they notice the relatively low student to teacher ratio, 
routhly is: 1. 

The million-dolior question is - "who is to blame 
for this laclc of affinity: the students, the faculty, or 
the administration? 

The many underlying factors that have brought 
about this resulting low morale point the blame to all 
three. The administration provides the initial thrust for 
any type of student-faculty relationship. After all, they 
do the hiring, it seems that one of their unmentioned 
policies is to hire the younger faculty In order to acquire 
a long-term investment. These younger teachers have 
often not yet attained their doctorate degree. Faculty 
inexperience at creating a strong rapport with their 
students is manifested by disrespectful, chaotic inter- 
ruptions during lecture and a high rate of cuts. A teacher 
must start somewhere, but there is no excuse for a high 
quantity of inexperienced professors at any one school. 
The administration should also follow through with Its 
responsibility of relieving a professor of his duties when 
they quite obviously do not live up to the rating that 
this college so courageously boasts (p. 1 1 '78-79 D.V.C. 

Faculty should taice some matters into consideration 
in order to relieve themselves of any blame. First, they 
are the faculty and we the student body. It is the re- 
sponsibility of the faculty to set a good example for the 
students to follow. Professors are often late for their 
scheduled classes, sometimes never showing up. The 
amount of free time that they offer for personal help in 
their offices is also quite limited. Many professors leave 
the campus as soon as their last class is finished. But their 
responsibility is to the student. Office time should be In- 
creased. Extra help sessions should be stressed. The 
faculty is not paid solely for the amount of time they 
spend In class. 

And now the responsibility falls on us, the student. 
Why do we feel so bitter towards those teaching us? We 
are so quicic to scream about the professors we dislike. 
Rarely, though, do we encourage or compliment the ones 
whom we approve. This inconsistency does not give our 
word too much pull. We must give credit where credit 
is due. We must exercise respect for those who do their 
job. Only then will our dissatisfactions initiate for us any 
improvements. Finally, if we expect the faculty to do 
their job, we must hold up our own end of the academic 
burden. Preparation for class is infinitely important. It 
promotes class participation and discussion. This forms 
the root for any relationship we will build with those 
upon whom we are entrusting our academic careers. 


The Intramural Football season is quickly drawing to 
a close. The race for the top six teams is fierce. The final 
race this week should be an exciting one!. We wish all 
teams for an exciting season. 

GOOD LUCK in the play offs! ! !

With all of the fail sports coming to a close this 
week, we enter a new winter season. Starting November 
2Sth, the Delaware Valley Mens Varsity Basketball 
team, under the direction of their new head coach, Les 
Lombardi, will travel to Williamsburg, Va. to open their 
season against Division I team, William & Mary. 

Coach Lombardi comes to DVC from Winston 
Churchill High School in Potamac, Maryland. Here he 
led his underdog team to a state AA Championship. 
Lombardi 's paramount achievement as a high school 
coach was leading the Capital All Stars over the United 
States Ail Surs. The victory marked the first time in the 
five year history of the high school All Star game that 
a local team won. 

Mr. Lombardi thrives on challanges. His high school 
coaching recorc*. proves it. That is why he scheduled his 
Division III team to face William & Mary. Even though 
his team is an obvious underdog, he believes this oppor- 
tunity will offer an invaluable experience, carrying over 
throughout the season. 

The team has endured Lombardi 's efficient 2 hours 
a day, 6 days a week practices since mid October with 
team and individual Improvement being the resulting 
factor. There are still 2 long weeks of hard practice re- 
maining to iron out any rough spots. 

Although he makes no predictions, (mainly be- 
cause of infamiliararity with the opposition) with good 
enthusiastic fans can make the difference of 10 or more 
points. Last year 10 extra points per game would have 
won 7 more games. DVC students can make that differ- 
ence. The first home game is against Wilkes on Wednesday, 
November 29. Come out and lets ignite a champion!

season with a 10-7 victory over the "Jersey Devils" of 
Fairleigh Dickinson (Madison). The win was the first of 
the season and the first football win in the new James 
Work Memorial Stadium. 

in the first half both teams battled for field position. 
The "Aggies" had an early opportunity in the first quarter 
but missed a 29 yard field goal attempt. The remainder of 
the half saw good defensive action by both teams. Both 
teams entered the locker room at haiftime scoreless. 

The A^ies opened the third quarter with a score on 
their first possession. After a recovered F.D.U. fumble. 
Junior quarterback Ron Haraka (cllfton, N.J.) hit sopho- 
more Phil Boob (Mill Hall, Pa.) with a 29 yard touchdown 
pass. The extra point was added by Kevin Hoke to make 
the score 7-0 In favor of Delaware Valley Colle^. 

The "Jersey Devils" retaliated by opening the fourth 
quarter with a touchdown of their own. Senior Don Davis 
of F.D.U. caught a deflected pass from freshman quarter- 
back Cliff Koch and fell Into the end zone. The 22 yard 
completion and extra point by Warren Kimber tied the 
score at 7-7. 

The "Aggies" ended their frustration immediately 
after the 4 minute warning as freshman kicker Kevin 
Hoke (Pottsviile, Pa.) kicked a 22 yard field goal. The 
"Aggies" had three touchdowns called back on penalties

yard touchdown run. 

The large home crowd was treated to a special half- 
time show by the Penn Ridge Marching Band.

The DVC Wrestlers open their session on the 1 8th of 
November with the Fourth Annual Philadelphia Metro- 
politan Tournament. Last year DVC placed 3rd behind 
Temple and Weschester. Last seasons outstanding record 
of 15-2-0 is enhanced this year by the fact that no starters 
were lost through graduation. In reality, this year's team 
should be stronger and, quite possibly attain an un- 
defeated season. 

Coach Marshall sees Dave Zawisa 1 1 8, Art Shuli 1 72, 
Stan McGlynn 158, and Mike Danis in the starting line-up. 
Helping out will be sophomores Al Kurnath 150, Warren 
Robertson 177, Hank Knlbe 190, and Jeff Bartholomew 

Freshmans rounding out the team are Jim Noiasco 
1 26, and Tony Novak 1 34. Good competition from non 
starters Is anticipated. 

In a final word, the DVC Wrestlers deserve greater 
recognition to which previous records prove valid. They 
are one of our "Aggie" teams that have been producing 
winning seasons. And yes, they are GOOD and, very 
much a winner. 


The women's basketball team of Delaware Valley 
College wilt be participating in League 4 of the Middle 
Atlantic Conference. Other colleges in that league Include: 
Drew, Ursinus, and Widener. 

Practice sessions for the Lady Aggies will begin Tues- 
day, November 7, 1978. Although the Aggies have little 
depth, they will feature returning letter winners: Joyce 
Newswanger, Pine Grove, Pa.; Donna Kalidenskas, Phila- 
delphia, Pa.; and Brenda Wolfe, Perkasie, Pa. 

Coach Peggy Veilncr, entering her fifth year as head 
coach, expects freshmen Donna Cassano, York, Pa. and 
Patti Rissinger, Sacramento, Pa., to aid the Aggie cause. 
Both were outstanding performers on their respective high 
school teams: York Suburban and Tri-Valiey. 

The Lady Aggies open their season at Franklin and 
Marshall College December 5th, and travel to Western 
Maryland on December 9th. The December 9th date 
concludes their '78 season. 


The Delaware Valley Cross Country Team com- 
pleted its 1978 season finishing 11th out of 21 teams in 
the conference championship meet held over the 5.0 
Ridley Creek State Park course. The results were a re- 
flection of the dual meet season, with the Aggie thinclads 
besting the teams they had beaten during the regular 
season and finishing in back of those teams that had 
beaten them during the season. 

As planned the team members ran most of the race 
in groups with Bruce Murphy and Vic Frey finishing 55th 
and 64th, Chip Cowher and Gene Doyle 74th and 79th, 
and Chris Bradley and Russ Rising 9Sth and 97th. injury 
plagued Matt Hengle was not able to complete the race.

President of Student Government 

As you may lie aware, on November 12th, the Board 

of Trustees at it's Annual Meeting voted to modify the 

present campus alcohol regulations. These modifications 

will not become effective until September 1979. 

The modifications that were made have not been 
presented in their entirity but, in essence are as follows: 

1. Beer or wine in moderation may be consumed on 
campus by students who are 21 years of age or 
older in specified residence halls only. 

2. Students 21 years of age or older, who desire to 
drink alchollc beverages on campus, will be re- 
quired to register with the Dean of Students. 

3. A special ID card will be issued to those students 
who register and they will be assigned to a 
specific dormitory which will house only those 
participating in the program. 

4. Special approved social activities for these stu- 
dents may be held in the lounge areas of these 
specified dormitories. 

The Modifications and their full explanation is forth 
coming during the next few weeks. Until then, this Is all 
that we know, please be patient with your questions.* 

This program will be on a trial basis and will take 
alot of effort and cooperation on behalf of the Student 
Body to make such a program a success. 

Work on the mechanics has begun already and will 
continue through next semester until they are finialized. 
At such time the proposal, it's mechanics and full ramifi- 
cations on the Student Body and Student Life here at 
Del Val, will be given a final review. It is hoped that each 
and every one of you will bring forward some positive 
ideas on how this change can best be made to work. The 
change in the drinking policy has been requested for 
many years; now that we have It, let's make it work for 
the good of all students at Del Val. Together, we can 
move forward, and attend to other problems as well. 

^Because this policy is still being finialized, please write 
down your questions and forward them to Student 
Government or c/o The Collegian so that we may attend 
to them now. 


This past Monday saw the first snow of the 1978-79 
school year at DVC. Although classes were scheduled as 
normal, many were called off or cut short due to the 
inclement weather as snow continued to fall well into the 
day. The morning brought the inconveniences of transpor- 
tation, slippery walks, cold figures, and those blasted 
snow flakes melting on your glasses. By afternoon, 
however, as free time was found here and there, the usual 
campus snow scenes were witnessed. Snowball fights 
erupted outside the dining hall, dogs and their masters 
frolicked in the white yards, and janitors shoveled the 
little bit of snow and sleet from the steps and walkways 
of their respective buildings. Other than some of the 
buildings being a little on the chilly side, it was all-in-all a 
nice transition day between Thanksgiving vacation and 
that final third of the semester which always seems to 
contain more work than the previous two-thirds. 



The Residence Life Office would like to be notified 
by those students who will be moving off campus or 
withdrawing from the College for the Spring Semester of 
'79; this also includes a senior who will be graduated. Any 
student who will be graduated or will be withdrawing 
must pick up a "check-out" form from Mr. Fulcoly, 
Director of Student Counseling Services (Lasker Hall). 

Anyone who desires to move off campus must 
complete a "Request To Move Off Campus"; these 
forms may be obtained from the Residence Life Office 
(Allman Building). Students who are making arrange- 
ments for on campus room changes must notify the 
Resident Assistant on their floor who will then issue a 
"Request for Room Change" that must be completed 
and returned to the Residence Life Office. The Resi- 
dence Life Office encourages all those requesting to 
change rooms to make their own arrangements with 
students who are also interested in changing rooms. All 
requests must be approved by the Housing Directors 
before the changing of rooms takes place.

The operation of the laundramat in Ulman Hall 
began in November of '77. There were only two washers 
and two dryers the first year. The laundry facility proved 
to be profitable and very much needed. The College and 
outside contractors researched the possibility of adding 
more machines; we received the go-ahead and added two 
more washers and two more dryers. Thus, the College 
started the '78- '79 academic year with four washers and 
four dryers. 

The laundromat is being used just about 24 hours a 
day. To date, the College Is not sure how many more 
machines the facility can accommodate. Recommenda- 
tions have been made to add additional machines. If 
additional machines are not added it will be for mere 
mechanical reasons such as wastewater disposal. 

DVC leases the laundry equipment from a com- 
mercial business, Coin-Op of America. Coin-Op services 
all of the equipment in the laundry room. If you find 
that the machines are not operating properly, please 
notify Mrs. Vararre, ext. 219; the repair requisition will 
be given to Coin-Op. If you are losing money, refunds 
may be obtained from Mrs. Navarre, Allman Building, 
2nd floor #7.

Bravo Diane Devore and Terri Domagala and who- 
ever else was involved in organizing the recently held 
Variety Show. The record crowd proved that our college 
is not such a dead-pan campus. The excellent acts were 
exciting displays of the high caliber talent we never notice. 
Congratulations to the winners of the best act and best 
commercial awards. Receiving $50 for best act was Tyro, 
a band made up of D.V.C. Students: Chip Cower, Mike 
Oanis, Craig Edgerton, Drew Fillipo, Bret Torrey, and

won $25. (John chews Copenhageri) 


The COLLEGIAN is growing. We need your help. 
Anyone who is Interested in helping in any way is most 
cordially welcome to join our staff. We need people to 
assist with writing, art, photography, circulation, and yes, 
advertising. The paper has already expanded into a new 
office in the basement of Ulman Hall. This office is larger 
and is more centrally located on campus to serve you 
better. We are also looking for a new expanded format for 
the paper. This will not be possible without a larger staff. 

If you were not able to help with the paper during 
this semester, please give strong consideration to helping 
during the next semester. If you are a member of a club, 
we heed you to report on your club's activities. 

The general staff meetings are held every Monday at 
11:30 am and will now be In our new office (room 1A) 
In the basement of Ulman Halt. Any new face will be a 
welcomed face. Admission is free, so we hope to see you

In past articles I have stressed the importance of stu- 
dent cooperation in striving for a unified body. This im- 
porunt issue is not to be taken lightly. Nevertheless, 
progress will not be made in that direction until a satis- 
factory example is set as a guideline. 

Now we must ask this question, "Who is in a posi- 
tion to provide this necessary example?" My answer to 
that question is, "The Student Government." Many 
people, however, have expressed feelings, pointing a 
convicting finger at our elected minority. It must be 
taken into consideration that many complaints are im- 
mature, biased, or unsubstantiated. It is not my desire to 
dwell on the complaints. It is my intent to write on a 
result. As a result of students voicing their opinions 
through this school publication, friction has developed 
between the staff of the "Collegian" and the officers of 
the Student Government. The editor of our staff has been 
distinctly accused of not getting things accomplished for 
our student body. It is not the role of the newspaper to 
work out the problems of the campus. This is the job of 
the Student Government. The "Collegian" is to present 
the news as it occurs on the campus of Delaware Valley 
College of Science and Agriculture. Hopefully, these two 
essential organizations will learn to accept their individual 
responsibilities in a new light and with a new goal. That 
goal is unity.

For the first time in the history of our college a 
Hillel organization is in the process of being formed. The 
Hlllel is a Jewish fellowship club found on just about 
every university and major college campus across the 
nation. Hillel is a cultural as well as a religious experience 
that is open to the entire college population. 

During the last few years a new trend of returning to 
one's roots has been quite evident throughout America. 
The Hillel offers an active expression of this trend. It is 
a vehicle for active participation in the broad social, 
cultural, and religious activities offered by the organi- 

A constitution has yet to be formulated and pre- 
sented to the I.C.C., however an advisor has been chosen 
from the faculty, who is quite capable and willing to de- 
vote his time and interest to the club. 

If you are Interested in joining or helping out please 
contact Michael Sobel (Miller ext. 298) or Scott Geller 
(Samuel ext. 314).

In your opinion which of the following character- 
izes the DVC Library? 

A. A place to study lecture notes and textbooks. 

B. A place in which to spend free time between 

C. A source of Information to ferret out for term 

D. A source of recreational reading. 

E. None of the above. 

I suspect that most faculty members would antici- 
pate that student choices among these responses would 
run something like this: 

A. the choice of most on-campu$ students who more 
or less frequently visit the Library. 

B. the choice of most off-campus students who 
frequently visit the Library. 

C. the choice of those students who were polled 
within a weei( of the due date for a term paper. 

D. selected only by the Gleaner's staff members. 

E. the choice of all too many students. 

It may be, unfortunately, that many of us view tfie 
Library (make that and library) as a dull, Intimidating 
storehouse of dull, intimidating literature. But a library 
ought to be a fun place! Ceruinly our Library's staff, 
^ded by the Cultural Affairs Alliance, has sought to 
make it so! But all one has to do is to check the number 
of times that good books (that don't happen to be course 
assignments) have been checked out. It is apparent that 
too many DVC students simply don't appreciate that 
there is an enormous amount of pleasurable reading stored 
in the Library and they are missing the boat! 

There is a great deal of interesting recreational liter- 
ature in the Library. I mean books that are fun, not 
chores, to read. Each of us has his or her own list of favor- 
ites on his or her favorite topics. Mine is natural history, 
and, for what it's worth, I've listed some fun books in 
that subject below. The next time you're looking for 
something to do with your spare time, try one of them. 
I found them enterUining, interesting, and (perish the 
thought!) i even learned (painlessly!) something from 
them! Maybe they'll do the same for you! (And, by the 
way. . .have you got some favorites? Why not share 
them with us via the Collegian?)

Dear Editor: 

In response to the article entitled "Commuter 
Corner" appearing in the November 3rd issue of The 
COLLEGIAN, I would like to correct what I feel was a 
complete misrepresentation of the facts concerning 
Student Government's action taken on the present 
parking situation. 

The suggestion was brought forward at our meeting 
on October 9th that commuters be allocated the front 
half of the parking lot and residents the back half. This 
suggestion appeared in our minutes. A Committee was 
formed to look into the parking problem and make a 
recommendation to be put forth to the administration. 
Also, stated in that paragraph was a request for more 
suggestions. To this date we have received no other 
suggestions. The Committee will make its report at our 
joint meeting on November 13th. Will you be there to 

In addition, our request for a clean-up of trash In the 
parking lot (October 23rd) was directed at all students 
leaving trash behind, not solely commuters, if commuters 
always get "stuck" parking in the rear of the lot, and they 
don't make a mess, then why is the back half of the lot 

In conclusion, I think it would be an excellent Idea 
for a Collegian Staff member to cover Student Govern- 
ment meetings. If this is impossible, 1 am always available 
for questions concerning Student Government; or, as a 
last resort, you should at least read Student Gowrnment 
minutes and correctly represent them in the Collegian 

Michael Downing, President 
Student Government 

Dear Mike: 

If you read tfie COLLEGIAN regularly, you riiould 
realize diat the "Commuter Comer" is formatted as an 
editorial type column. Anything found In that column ii 
lltely to be highly opinionated. It is the autfior's pert^- 
atlve to express himself In a m»iner which is convincing, 
but not abusl^, and It Is the paper's option to print any- 
thing tfiat it feels is Informative or thought provoking, 
but Is not Irrespontible or Inaccurate. All of these criteria 
have be^n met. 

Your chVr^ of misrepresentation seems to me to be 
unfounded, if you study the article carefully, you ^ould 
notice that nothing Is actually false. I confess that there 
are a few cynical comments, but I must resUte tiiat It Is 
the author's perogatiw to include these if he feels that 
they will help to expre» the idea being presented. The 
article's comment regarding ^e Student Government 
Rep's seemingly lack of concern is true. Although this 
may not be the feeling of tfie general consensus of Stu- 
dent Government, It was the attitude displayed by one of 
tiw Reps. Also, the litter situation in tfie parking lot, 
which may in part be due to commuters, is, in my opin- 
ion, predominantly perpetrated by tf)e resident studentt. 
I do, howe>«r, ^ree tfiat everyone tfiould do his part 
toward a clean-up effort. 

In the final analysis, I do not think that things are as 
bad as you Imply. Our respective Institutions ^ould be 
able to work in harmony, complimenting the student life 
at DVC. I would like to point out tha^ In the same issue 
of the COLLEGIAN in question, there was an article 
entitled "Government Glimpse". It was very compli- 
mentary of the work being done by Student Govern- 
ment Do you think that Its inclusion was an oversight? 
We do try to keep a balanced content! If you do not 
feel that It is sufficient, I invite and encourage you or 
one of your staff to submit a weekly column to inform 
the student body of Student Government's activity In 
a fashion more interesting to read than a copy of the 
minutes of your meetings.

Th« Intramural Football season ended witfi the 
Trojan — S.O.M.F. champlontfilp game. The outcome was 
Trojans 7 - S.O.M.F. 0. 

The game was primarily dominated by tite Trojan 
offense. The score was deceiving as two touchdowns 
were called back. The first half went scoreleu. 

The su-ong Trojan defense susuined long hard drives 
by ti^e S.O.M.F. offense and broke through It only once 
for a score. S.O.M.F. had several long offensive drives in 
both halves, but could not capitalize on them. 

The only score came in the middle of the second 
half, after a long drive down the field t^ the Trojans. 
Substitute Quarterback Wayne Long threw a pass to Pete 
Festt In ttie end zone, for the only touchdown. The extra 
point was scored on a run to ttie left corner by Wayne 
Long. This brought the score to 7-0, where it remained 
throu^out the finish of the game. 

Defense was strong on both sides and each team held 
the other well. 

S.O.M.F. played an excellent game and are to be 
congratulated along with the Trojans for a fine game 
and Mason. 

We want to Thank all teams who participated this 
year - It was an exciting, fun-filled, fairly Injury free 
season, right up to tht end. We also wish to thank all the 
referees who gave their time and energy to make this 
teason the best one. 

GOOD LUCKIl to all players and teams in the 
Winter Intramural program - See you next Fall!

In the fifth Metropolitan wrestling championship 
held at Glassboro Sute College, Delaware Valley, as a 
team, placed third behind Temple and Salisbury State. 
Among colleges of strong opposition were, Univ. of 
Delaware, Weschester State, and Univ. of Penn. Individual 
performers saw Sun McGlynn 158, and Art Shull 142 
Uke third place victories; and Mike Danls 167, and Jeff 
Bartholomew heavyweight finished second. 

However, the highlight of the day was Dave Zawisza. 
Coach Marshall said "Dave needed a spark to get him 
going". Determination to come out on the winning side 
was all the spark he needed. In the first round, Dave 
easily disposed of Schisaler of Urslnus 5 sec. into period 
two. Then Zawisza decisioned Straglano of Weschester 
Sttte 9-6. Winding up to Uke the championship, Dave 
edged Bradely of Salisbury 4-2 to Uke first place in the 
1 1 8 pound weight class. 

After the meet. Coach Marshall commented that this 
victory was the spark Dave was looking for. He was also 
pleased at how his team performed against some of the 
bigger schools. Individual performers also placed their 
mark in their respective weight classes. If determination 
was the tool of victory, then the DVC werstlers have an 
abundance thereof, and Dave's victory might be a prelude 
of what is to come.

burst and an overall 68% field goal percenugc. Fine 
shooting and control of the offensive boards boosted 
William and Mary over the Aggies, 86-64. High scorer for

Santa's elves aren't the only ones working hard, the 
Apiary Society has been pretty busy itself. They just 
recently extracted and bottled some honey obtained 
from the college hives. Many non-club members buzzed 
on up to the bee house to get an Idea on how this pro- 
cedure is carried out. Everyone went home sticky, but 

This Friday will be another busy night at the work- 
shop as the club will be making beeswax candles. Doc 
Berthoid usually enlightens everyone with fun facts 
about wax and other bee products. 

Need a Christmas gift idea? Give something from 
nature - a product from our friends the bees. Honey 
and candles make great gtfts for your Aunt Marthas 
and others. Those cute hqHey bears would be great as 
stocking stuffers. Honey is also excellent in holiday 
baking. See your local apiary society member today 
and finish up your Christmas Shopping. 


The professor is my quizmaster, I shall not flunk. 

He maketh me to enter the examination room. 

He leadeth me to an alternate seat. 

He restoreth my fears. 

He leadeth me into a deep problem for the grade's 

Yes, though I know not the answers to the question, 

The class average comforts me. 

i prepare my answers before me in the presence of 
my proctors. 

He ahointeth my head with figures. My time runneth 

Surely grades and bluebooks will follow me all the 
days of my life. 

And I will dwell in this university forever. Amen

H6w many times have you gone by the Alumni 
House and seen an old black man sitting on the patio or In 
his car smoking his pipe? How many times have you 
wondered, "Who is that guy"? Weil, I was curious also, so 
I went to Mrs. Work with my question. Campus, meet 
Ernest Purneil. 

Ernest, who originally came from Baltimore, is the 
longest employed person on DVC's payroll. He started 
working here in around 1910 when he was roughly 16 
years old. His current title is "Custodian of the Alumni 
House," but his duties have been very diversified through- 
out the years. 

At one time, when Lasker Hall served as the dining 
hail, Ernest was the dining hall's head waiter. He would be 
the one who served the Trustees and the Board of Direc- 
tors when they were on the campus. According to Mrs. 
Work, Ernest still has (and is still proud of) his white 
jacket which he used to wear when he performed this 

He also used to serve as chauffer to the presidents 
of the College, driving for both Dr. Krauskopf and Dr. 
Work. The administrative offices of the College were 
in Philadelphia so transportation was needed to and fro. 
The two men for whom he drove were the two men 
whom he respected more than any other. 

Ernie has had many other jobs around campus, but 
to name them ail would fill up this page of the paper. To 
evaluate his personality, Dr. Feldstein stressed two 
works: very loyal. Ernie loves DVC and probably knows 
more about its history than anyone else. He has become 
such a part of the institution that almost all of the old 
"Aggies" ask to see him at homecoming. Many ask, 
"is he still here?" because they remember him as being 
old when they attended DVC, but even in his old age 
(over 80) he still drives and prepares his own meals. 

Ernie has a good outlook on life. It Is said that he 
has never really had a true enemy. He loves to philos- 
ophize and has a well stocked storehouse of old sayings 
and homespun philosophy, but he also loves to tease and 
is a great storyteller. Although Ernie has had little formal 
education he has certainly made up for it through his 
life's experiences. He even served in WWII 

As a hobby, Ernie loves to raise tropical fish. He has 
several aquariums in his room. He also enjoys whittling 
and smoking his cigars and pipe. He is really a pleasant 
person to talk to and although he is a little shy, he will 
talk to anyone. Next time you have the opportunity, 
stop and talk to Ernie. . . .you will both enjoy It!. 


Please Note: 

It may seem early, however, it is time to start 
thinking about financial aid for the 1979-80 academic 
year. All the necessary forms are now available in the 
Student Financial Aid Office. Those students who aspire 
to renew their eligibility or who would like to be con- 
sidered for aid are encouraged to come In as soon as

Procrastination can only go so far before a much- 
despised task be done. Such is the case with cleaning a 
dorm room, a chore loathed by many. There comes a 
time when you can no longer wade through plies of 
dirty laundry scattered on the floor, when clouds of 
dust hanging in the air making breathing hazardous. At 
such times, action must be taken. After the clothes are 
picked up, It suddenly becomes apparent that the job is 
far from done. A thick cover of dust on floor and furni- 
ture alike is suddenly revealed to the eye. As if this were 
not discouraging enough, other little surprises await your 
discovery. Concealed behind each chair are growing 
"tumbleweeds" of lint, which float gently through the 
dust-filled air at the slightest disturbance. By the window, 
the cider which you so diligently set out to harden has 
spilled and solidified, leaving an epoxy-like substance on 
the floor to grasp any unsuspecting shoes. Somewhere in 
the dark recesses beneath your desk lies a green, un- 
finished hamburger, now home to an army of tiny ants. 
And the coke which you spilled on your carpet last week 
now houses a multiplying colony of Eumycoto. You 
contemplate whether or not you should assault the mess 
on this particular day. All of a sudden, study becomes 
extremely important. Finally, you decide that your health 
should come first, and you begin to search for your

It's almost vacation time again, so what do you do 

with those houseplants? If they're cactus and other 

succulents, they will survive for several weeks without 

water or other care. 

If you have just a few plants, taking them home is 
probably best. However, this may be impractical If you 
have many plants. They will survive unattended if you 
take some time to prepare them. First, cut off all dead 
and dying leaves and stems. Also remove all flowers and 
flower buds. Any dead or dying plant tissue will become 
moldy and may cause the plant to rot. Water the plants 
well, but remove water from the saucer at the base of the 
pot. Then, seal the entire plant and pot in a clear plastic 
bag, leaving some air space surrounding the foliage, but 
don't puncture the plastic bag. 

This treatment will keep your plants in reasonably 
good condition for about a month.

Well, once again the snows have come, and once 
j^ain the commuters are forgotten. We are expected to 
be here on time even though the roads are not cleared. 
Why can't classes be delayed an hour? This would allow 
us to drive here safely and without having to rush on icy 
roads. To make up the hour, each period could be cut ten 
minutes. Apparently the thinking goes: if the residents 
can get to class on time why can't the commuters: 

We received the following letter: 
Dear Computer Corner: 

Commuters should have some concern for entertain- 
ment expenditures around campus. It seems as though 
costly entertainment is only offered at night which Is not 
easy for most commuters to attend. For Instance, In 
Septemt)er, a good amount of money was spent on a 
magician (Gil Eagles) whose greatest act was making 50/n« 
where in the neighborhood of $1,400 disappear from the 
student government balance and recently there was an 
escape artist scheduled at night who failed to show up on 
time. (Guess he got tied up!) These costly events should 
be enjoyed by ail. 

Commuters, you pay the same dues and student 
government fee as do resident students, and do not enjoy 
the same benifits. Maybe our student government will 
look into a "college hour" for future semesters. During 
this hour there would be no regular classes and entertain- 
ment could be scheduled so no one gets cut short. By the 
way, commuters comprise a solid third of the total stu- 
dent population, hardly enough to be ignored. 

If equal attention cannot be offered, then there 
should not be an equal demand for dues or student 
government fees. Signed, P.S.

The Delaware Valley Varsity Basketball team won 
tticir opening home and league game by beating Wilkes 
College In overtime, 90-91. 

At the end of the first half, the DVC fans witnessed 
Ken Mitchel hook a two pointer with :01 on the clock, 
which l^rought the Aggies within one point. They trailed 
previously by 1 points. 

The Aggies came back hot ind held a nine points 
lead most of the second half. The lead deteriorated 
however and with 45 remaining, Del Vai led by just 
two. A poor inbounds pass enabled Wilkes to tie It up and 
force an overtime which only proved to prolong the death 
of the visiting team. 

Without spoiling coach Lombardl's home debut, 
the Aggies rose to the occasion by out scoring their 
opponent by nine points in the 5:00 overtime. The 
leading hot ,hand for the Ani«* was Ken Mitchel with 
26 points followed by Jim McShea with 20 points. A 
fine performance by Tom Kehoe also deserves mention. 

On Saturday, December 2, the Aggies were not as 
fortunate as In their previous game when the Elizabeth- 
town Blue jays handed them their first loss. Delaware 
Valley held a ten point lead In the first half but they 
dwindled to a three point lag by the middle of the second. 
Plenty of opportunities came the Aggies way but low 
percentage shots, weak rebounding and a few officiating 
discrepancies combined to keep them from getting any 
closer than one point. The final score was 74-70. 


DVC Is introducing a Lacross Club on campus this 
year. All those interested, are invited to attend the 
meetings on Tuesday at 6:30 pm in Work Hail Lounge.

From the 
Editor's Desk 

Dear Fellow Students, 

On behalf of the COLLEGIAN sUff. I would like to 
welcome you bacic for another semester of classes at 
Delaware Valley College. In retrospect, many things 
happened during the past semester that will change the 
way that both we and the College will think in the future. 
We have learned more about people - who we can and 
cannot trust. The College has learned more about students' 
needs and desires. It was just this past semester that the 
board of directors (or trustees) approved of a more liberal 
alcohol policy (effective September 1979) for the campus. 
It is something which has been already accepted or sur- 
passed by many colleges, but still, to maintain whatever 
we have gained, we must make a conscious effort to not 
abuse it. If we can show the administration that we can 
handle this newfound freedom in a mature, adult fashion, 
then they may not be so hesitant to adopt additional 
policies allowing even more freedom and benefits for the 

I would like to thank our staff and advisors and all 
other people whose contributions to the COLLEGIAN 
helped us put out a successful newspaper. The many 
long hours involved in the preparation of each edition 
go unappreciated by far too many people. We have 
taken our paper through several steps of advancement 
this past semester, and with your help, by aiding us with 
some of your time and ideas, we can make it even better. 
Cooperation is the key word. 

While on the subject of cooperation, I would tike to 
take some time to condemn the activities of a select 
group of students who took it upon themselves to con- 
duct vandalism and theft against the office of the COL- 
LEGIAN and several other rooms In the basement of 
Ulman Hall. These actions only serve to confirm that 
those who are performing them are too immature to 
handle the responsibilities of the cause that they are 
"fighting for". Demonstrations of this nature are held 
with far less credibility than are expressions ttirough 
more conventional forms of communication. It is true 
that the room which is now the COLLEGIAN office had 
at one time been earmarked to become a student lounge. 
Also, some very diligent and valuable work had been done 
on the room by student volunteers, but it Is my under- 
sunding (and someone please correct me if I am wrong) 
that because there had been little or no Interest shown in 
the project for a "long time", the room was turned over 
to the COLLEGIAN, who had been sharing an office with 
the Circle K Club. For those who are interested, the 
COLLEGIAN would be happy to help, with what powers 
it has, to find an alternate solution to the problem, if 

I would now like to take the opportunity in this first 
Issue of the semester to discuss a point which I somewhat 
neglected during the past semester, partly due to lack of 
experience, and partly due to lack of time. Editorial 
policy is something which must be rather openly ex- 
pressed, and followed up with by appropriate compliance. 
It must be understood by all those concerned, and must 
be flexible enough to accommodate charige if just cause is 

The COLLEGIAN was established by the school 
with one major goal in mind. That is to provide a medium 
of mass communication between the students on campus. 
It is paid for through student fees and is not censored by 
the faculty or the administration, but by the student 
staff. All contributions, regardless of source (student, 
faculty, administration, private, and public, as well as 
those submitted by staff members) are considered for 
publication. The process of selection to determine what 
articles will or will not be published is conducted by the 
editor at either his sole discretion or as a result ot con- 
sultation with the staff. It must be noted that it is very 
seldom that a student contribution is omitted. 

Letters to the editor and the staff are encouraged. 
Every letter will be read and, if appropriate, will be an- 
swered and/or published. Letters for publication MUST 
be signed ledgibly, however all requests for the with- 
holding of names will be honored. The editor retains the 
right to edit any and ail material for publication. 

As was the case last semester, the deadline for our 
Friday publication is Monday at noon. Materials sub- 
mitted for publication must be neat and clear - typing is 
the most preferrable form. Clubs are encouraged to make 
announcements of meetings and upcoming events as well 
as report on events past. Students are invited to take ad- 
vantage of the wide exposure on campus of the COL- 
LEGIAN to make any grievance known to all. 

We have but one problem. Money. Some of our pub- 
lications will have to be cut short this semester because of 
a tighter budget. I will be forwarding a letter to the ad- 
ministration shortly, asking that next year's budget allot- 
ment for publications be made larger so that we may con- 
tinue to Improve ourselves to the point that we really 
have a first rate newspaper for a non-journalism college 
the size of ours. 

To Improve our staff, I will be contacting the Gen- 
eral Studies department to determine whether a journalism 
course could be feasibly initiated at DVC. It would also 
tend to attract more people to work on producing the 
newspaper. Currently, there is only Vt credit per semes- 
ter given for publications work. If a course is approved, it 
will most likely carry with it a larger number of credits. 

We will, however, continue to make strides with 
what resources we have to bring you the best newspaper 
we can produce.

The Delaware Valley College Block and Bridle Club 
held its annual dinner meeting recently at Bentley's Steak- 

Dr. TIbor Pelle was honored by the club on this occa- 
sion for 26 years of service as advisor to the club. He was 
presented a beautiful watch and plaque, by the president 
of the Club, Glenn Michalak, in appreciation for his long 
service to the club. 

Also on hand as guests of the club were Dr. Feldstein, 
President of the College, and Mrs. James Work, Vice- 
President for Administrative Affairs. 

The guest speaker was Professor Herman Purdy, a 
long time personal and professional friend of Dr. Pelle 's. 
Purdy, formerly of Penn State University, is an inter- 
nationally known livestock judge who spoke to the Ani- 
mal Science students about judging livestock in relation 
to small agricultural colleges. 

APO — Open Meetings 

For the next several weeks ALPHA PHI OMEGA 
will be conducting open meetings, Wednesdays at 7 p.m. 
in the dining hall lounge. We invite anyone Interested in 
pledging, to attend. Through APO you will be given an 
opportunity to serve your campus and community with 
other interested people. 

Parking Problems 

At the beginning of this last semester the front end 
of the student parking lot was lined with smaller spaces 
for sub<ompact cars. The size of these spaces was ignored 
by most students, and full size cars were present more 
often than not. However, signs have now been posted 
designating these areas with smaller lined spaces for sub- 
compact cars only. These smaller spaces together provide 
twelve additional parking spaces. These posted areas will 
be strictly enforced according to Mr. Pence, the chief of 
security. The parking lot is scheduled to be resurfaced and 
rellned next year. This semester will be a trial run to see If 
the sub<ompact sectk>n Is feasible. Your cooperation will 
be greatly appreciated. 

WAPO - 640 AM 

The Friday Show will be back once again this semes- 
ter with Aldo, Steve, and Fredster as D)'s also along will 
be Double T with the sports update. Barometer Bob with

Radio station, or leave your name and phone number in 
our post office mail box (#1085). DONT miss our 
meeting Wednesday, January 31 , at 4:00 p.m. 


Beekeeping Short Course 

The College will again be offering two special three 
day short courses on beekeeping which are open to both 
members of the College Community and to the general 
public. The courses are designed to benefit the experienced 
beekeeper as well as providing enough information and 
experience to enable someone to get started in beekeeping. 
The Spring course will be held on Saturday, March 31, 
April 7, and 21. The Summer course will be held on 
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 22, 23, and 24. 

The course is under the direction of Dr. Berthold 
who will be assisted by Mr. Jack Matthenius, the New 
Jersey Supervisor of Bee Culture. Some of the topics to 
be covered are: Honey Bee Ecology, Beekeeping Equip- 
ment, Starting with Bees, Colony Establishment and Man- 
agement, Queen Rearing, Bee Diseases, Honey Processing 
and Sales, and Cooking with Honey. Many of the topics 
covered in discussion will also be observed and/or practiced 
in the DVC Apiary and Honey House. 

In past years, a number of Del Val students and 
faculty have taken the course, as well as beekeepers from 
as far away as Texas, California, and Canada. Further 
information about the course can be obtained from Dr. 
Berthold, Room 203, Mandeil Hall (College phone 285). 

Grade Your Faculty 

During the past semester, the COLLEGIAN has 
attempted to serve the student body of DVC in the best 
manner possible, by providing information concerning 
campus sports, entertainment, activities, and policy. We 
would like to ask you to help us now provide a service to 
the faculty by telling us your opinion of how well your 
professors and Instructors served you. Please list all 
faculty members who taught you this past semester, 
whether they taught a lecture or a lab, and supply what 
you feel is a fair letter grade (A,B,C,D,F) for each one, on 
the attached coupon. Clip the coupon and take it to 
either the Post Office or the COLLEGIAN office (room 
lA-Ulman BIdg.) no later than Friday, February 2, 1979. 
If there Is sufficient response, grades will be released 
two weeks from now and will be reported giving the 
arithmetic mean and the standard deviation. Please 
remember that this is neither a grudge match nor a pop- 
ularity contest. This is a serious matter and will not 
work without everyone's earnest effort.

S P S. . . .if you are interested in people, have a 
strong desire u> help others, possess leaderAlp qualities, 
like being part of a team and want to grow personnaily, 
you «re a natural for what people In higher education 
term a Student Personnel Service position. The Resident 
Assistant is a student that works for the students and 
College as well. In doing the things that come naturally, 
the RA gains respect and satisfaction while ^tting paid at 
the same time — a deal at half the price! 

Here is what some RAs have said about what It Is 
like being a RA, . . . ."making everyone realize that they 
are not the only ones on the floor and working with them 
in adjusting some of their living habits to live with each 
other was challenging''^ . ."my goal was to allow everyone 
to live In a good atmosphere, I mean letting them know 
they can have a good time, but at the same time having 
them aware of the rights of others"; "I have helped them 
to establish a friendly atmosphere among all, I gained 
from that!". .."By promoting more social activities 
within the hall, as well as encouraging competition with 
groups from other hails, some got more Involved than 
they ever would have without my efforts,". . .'There 
have been several high points In my job this year. I was 
an RA all last year and never felt as food as one night 
this year when a guy on the floor came to me and said 
he Just had to talk to someone and he didn't know 
who else to talk to because he was having several personal

Among the most unusual looking indoor plants 
technically called Lltkops, these little button shaped 
succulents grow about H to )4 inch in diameter. They're 
composed of two fleshy leaves, usually mottled or speck- 
led brown, reddish, brown, or a different shade of green. 
When grown indoors, they seldom flower. However, white 
or yellow flowers resembling small asters are occasionaliy 
borne between the leaves. 

Although not difflcult to grow, they do have speciflc 
cultural requirements which must be satisfied. They 
diould receive as much direct sunlight as possible, or elK 
grow a few inches from an artlflcial plant growth light. 
(A flxture conuining one cool white and one warm white 
fluorescent tube is flne.) Water tfiem about once every 
two weeks In summer, except when the two leaves split 
open to reveal a new pair^ At that time, stop watering 
until the older pair of leaves are drivelled and dry. The 
new pair of leaves obuins water and nutrients from the 
drivelling pair of leaves. Less frequent watering is needed 
during the winter months, especially if they're kept at 
a cool temperature. None are frost hardy. 

Although normally available as plants, they can also 
be grown from seeds. The seeds are fine and dustlike, with 
the seedlings requiring more water for the first several 
months. Patience is also required, since at least two years 
are required between seed and flowering size. 

There are about 30 species of living stones, plus 
teverai related genera that conuin pebble plants; Plants 
can be obtained from Ed Storms Inc., Box 775, Azie

An exhibition of contemporary oil paintings by 
Dorothy Heine Rudolph will open to the public at Kraus* 
kopf Memorial Library Friday, February 2nd, 1979, 
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. 

A Quakertown area resident, Ms. Rudolph earned 
her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Moore College of Art, 
Philadelphia, and studied further at Kansas City Art 
Institute, Kansas City, MO. 

Through intense color and design relationships, the 
artist expresses such universal human experiences as joy, 
passion, fear and growth. 

Ms. Rudolph's work has been exhibited in one-artist 
and group shows throughout the Delaware and Lehigh 
Valley areas. 

The current exhibition, which runs through February 
21st, will also include a number of silkscreen prints by 
the artist. 


Wild and crazy perhaps, but enteruining YES! Ed 
Williams was a refreshing change for D.V.C. students. 
He was able to relate to all who attended, to other stu- 
dents. He sang, he joked and told sofld stories and the 
audience was captivated. His songs were captivating, his 
manner inviting. Ed Williams had us singing and laughing 
with him. He uses his own material and some that Is 
familiar. Mr. Williams did renditions of itsy Bitsy Spider, 
show tunes, "Hello America", his own sex song and many 
more. His performance was a mixture of Blues, Bal'/ads, 
jokes, and interesting stories. For those who were not 
there you missed a great night of enteruinment. For 
those who attended they went away relaxed, knowing the 
evening was well spent. We all know now who are D.V.C !s 
most perverted students.

Mr. Gabriel Hanson is a new teacher to D.V.C. this 
year. Fall Semester he taught Eco. I to 225 students In 6 
classes varying from 15 to 51 students in a class, in the 
future he is teaching Eco. 1, Lit., and Political Science. He 
graduated from Augustana College, earned his masters in 
Eco. at Vanderbitt University, and completed his course 
work and examinations for a doctorate at Princeton 

He taught Poly. Sci. at New College in Florida while 
he was a graduate student and at Agnes Scott College in 
Georgia, an all female college. 

He had never taught economics before. His previous 
teaching experience was in political science at New Col- 
lege and Agnes Scott College. When asked what his moti- 
vation for teaching Eco. was, he replied that the class is 
mainly a survey course for people who won't take any 
further courses in economics, to enable them to understand 
the workings of the U.S. economy. 

Mr. Hanson experimented with various teaching 
methods and approaches during the first semester because 
it is a new school, new subject, and new students for him. 
He has discovered that professional economists have 
interests which are not the interests of students. He's 
slowly learning to de-emphasize some economic material 
and emphasize material which is more valuable to stu- 
dents. Each chapter is a new object for him to tackle. 

Students' attitudes toward the course differ. Mr. 
Hanson was surprised that his best students were women. 
He was expecting the opposite because he thought that 
men would be more interested in economics. 

When asked about student apathy, Mr. Hanson re- 
plied, "Yes, I think there is a lot of apathy, but there is a 
lot of apathy on every campus I've ever been on, either as 
a teacher or student. Apathy is a routine problem; nega- 
tive attitudes are not that much a problem." 

Mr. Hanson welcomes student class participation as 
well as their constructive criticism. He feels that to be a 
success any course must be teamwork between students 
and teacher. He sees the teacher's main function to be 
helping the students accomplish their learning objectives. 

He is looking forward to finding out more about the 
college and hopes to move closer to shorten his long 
dally commute. He misses being able to come back to 
campus evenings or weekends for the occasional varsity 
game a winning performance. Meanwhile if any student 
is interested carpooiing from around Hightstown, New 
jersey, let him know. Extension 276!

January, 1979 —afresh semester at Delaware Valley 
College of Science and Agriculture - a new beginning. 
It is a shame that so many people center their lives around 
new beginnings. Mistakes and pressures are in the past. 
This time you are going to do it all right: get those notes 
copied on schedule, prepare for class discussion, budget 
your t)eer money, or take a few hours of work in the 
cafeteria. Yes, this is the Ideal opportunity to start life 
anew, to turn over that withering leaf. Such are the 
thoughts of many here on campus. 

And, Indeed, It is the ideal opportunity to make a 
more determined, a more sincere effort at meeting those 
goals you have, for so Ipng, talked about. It is a time for 
setting new objectives. 

It is an encouraging truth, a blessing if you will, 
that we do have so many chances to make a fresh start. 
But just as true and much more Important is the fact 
that some day all of our new beginnings will be in the 

One example of new beginnings has already been 
touched upon. That is school. Each year, each semester, 
and each time we enter a new school of higher training 
we have fresh openings for achievement. But one day, be it 
after graduation at D.V.C. or after post-graduate studies, 
it will be time to apply all that we've learned In some 
manner of occupation. How well we have prepared will 
provide us jobs from all ranges of income and responsibility. 

A much broader category, one that provides infin- 
itely more opportunities, is life itself. One day it will be 
our time to move on from this world. And then what? 
What will become of all of our accomplishments? Who 
will answer for all of our mistakes? What if we never took 
advantage of the many openings we had to create our life 
anew? These questions and more have preplexed and frus- 
trated many scholars, simpletons, executives, common 
laborers, students and dropouts. 

The artswers to these questions must be sought by 
each individual as an individual. These problems are too 
often shoved into a hidden closet of one's mind. Don't 
close your self off to the new beginning that is waiting to 
revolutionize your world. Make this your year, your day 
of achievement and reformation.

An imporunt factor in getting good grades in coliege 
is your abiiity to Uke clear, well-organized class notes. 
Listening carefully to the instructor's lecture and writing 
down the important points is the key to succesful note- 
Uklng. The process of listening and writing at the same 
time will also help you understand. A few basic techni- 
ques can help. 

The purpose of class notes is to record the instruc- 
tor's lesson In a manner that will allow you to review and 
undersund the material afterwards. Your objective, 
therefore, is to outline the main and supporting ideas and 
facts so that they are clear and understandable. 

Write rapidly in your own form of shorthand. Don't 
try to take down everything - keep to the main points. 
Develop your own style of abbreviating and condensing 
the important data. Some people leave out vowels, for 
instance, or use only the first syllable, and omit articles 
and obvious verbs. Common abbreviations and symbols 
found In most dictionaries can often be of great help. 

instructors' teaching methods will differ. Youll 
have to be alert to each one's style and organization. 
Often tfiey start each class with an overview or outline 
and use It as a framework for their lecture. This, of 
course, is a good reason for being punctual. 

Outlines, diagrams or lists that Instructors wriu on 
the board are usually important. It Is a good idea to 
record these In your notebook, unless you know that 
the same material is already covered in your textbook. 

Indenting and spacing will help make your notes 
more readable. Start a new line out to the left for an im- 
portant heading. Indent subheads under this and so on. 

Surt a new page for each class, with the date and 
topic heading the page. When a new major topic or divi- 
sion is Introduced, begin another new page so that you 
will have enough room to record the appropriate material 
under it. 

A lined 8V4 x 11 " notebook is recommended. On the 
front cover you can paste your work schedule, as well as 
your name, address and phone number in case you ever 
misplace it. You can keep all your cla« notes, and the 
instructor's handouts, in this one book by tabbing sections 
for each course. You can also add or delete notes or fresh 
paper as you need to. Most students, by the way, find 
that notes made In pen are much more legible and durable 
then those in pencil. 

This article on class notes Is appearing here In two 
Installments and is one of a series of AAP STUDENT 
SERVICE articles developed by the college textbook 
publishers to help students Improve their use of study 
time and learning materials. A complimentary booklet 
will be sent to you If you write to AAP STUDENT 
SERVICE, Association of American Publishers, Inc., 
One Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016.

On Friday (January 19) the "Aggies" of Delaware 
Valley College traveled to Susquehanna University for a 
M.A.C. league game and won 88-79. First year coach Les 
Lombardi called it "our finest performance of the season" 
as the "Aggies" shot 71% from the field for the game. 
Leading at halftime 45-40, the "Aggies" had to hold off 
Susquehanna for the win. Leading the accurate shooting 
for D.V.C. was Ken Mitchell (Philadelphia) who hit on 
11 of 13 shots and three free throws for a toul of 25 
points. Bill Walter, the sophomore center from Philadel- 
phia, hit on 6 of 8 shots and three free throws for 19 
points plus 1 1 rebounds. Tom Kehoe (Norristown) also 
hit 6 of 8 shou and was a perfect 6 for 6 from the foul 
line to total 18 points, jim McShea (Norristown) added 
9 points and Tom Robinson (Hatboro) 8 points. The 
league win raised the "Aggies" to 3-3 In the league and 
7-9 overall. 

Th« following night ttie "Aggies" traveled to Juniata 
Coliege and met a hot-shooting Indian Club and fell 
104-92. The senior scoring machine, Roger Galo of 
junlau, broke the school's scoring record with 47 points. 
The high score was Indicative of some high percentage 
shooting. Although the "Aggies" shot 64% from the floor 
the first half, 20 turnovers gave juniatt a 51-43 lead. Bob 
Musser added 28 for junlau. For Delaware Valley Coliege, 
Ken Mitchell (Phila.) led all scorers with 23 points. Four 
other D.V.C. players scored double figures: Mark Werkiser 
(Norristown) 19, Bill Waiter (Philadelphia) 12, and Tom 
Robinson (Hatboro) and Tom Walsh (Roslyn) had 10 
points each. The loss put Delaware Valley's league record 
at 3-4 and 7-10 overall. 

On Monday ni^t (January 22) the D.V.C. cagers 
reven^d an eariler season tournament loss and defeated 
host Moravian College 81-68 in a non-league game. The 
"Aggies" lead by as much as 11 points in the first half, 
but the "Greyhounds" cut the lead to 39-35 at halftime. 
The second half saw D.V.C. increase the margin and some 
excellent foul shooting to put away the victory. Tom

what ever happened to 


Our former author of COMMUTER CORNER Is 
no longer attending DVC. If there is someone out there 
who would like to fill the shoes of this important position 
on the paper staff, please come to one of our meetings 
held on Monday afternoons at 4:00 in the paper office 
in the basement of Ulman Hall, loom 1 A. 


Dear Editor, 

The students of Ulman Second floor would like to 
be known that the decision by Mr. Sitarski to relieve Rich 
Mullen, R.A., of his duties is not in accord with our own 
feelings. We believe that Mr. Sitarski bases his decision on 
the grounds that Rich has not emulated proper leadership 

There is no doubt that there are some difficulties 
associated with the hall of Ulman Second but that the 
general consensus is that there will be considerably com- 
pounded discord if we do not have the presence of Rich 
Mullen. It is our opinion that Rich Mullen has properly 
fulfilled his duties as R.A. in a way that does not perse- 
cute the tenants and yet still hold the esteem of the hall. 

It seems to us that Mr. Sitarski does not take a real- 
istic view of life on Ulman Second floor. He does not have 
any first hand experience on the social structure of 
Ulman Second, and does not realize the potential prob- 
lems that will arise from the dismissmal of Rich Mullen. 
He Is apethetic toward the outcome of his decision being 
that he Is leaving Delaware Valley College on February 9, 
1979, leaving the problem to his successor. 

We appeal to the administration to review this 
issue Is an unbiased, realistic approach. 

Concerned students of 
Ulman Second 
Editor's note: After appealing Mr. SItarski's decision, 
Rich Mullen was offered a job as R.A. of Elson Hall, 
which he refused to accept. 

Dear Editor, 

I realize that there Is an energy crisis and that we are 
supposed to keep the thermostat at 68 degrees Fahrenheit, 
or whatever the latest temperature Is. But, there is such a 
thing as over-doing it. A case in point is the Birdcage In 
Allman Building-there is no heat at all in there. This is 
certainly not conducive to learning, or to health. One per- 
iod in there is bad enough during the winter months, but 
two long periods in a row in there is conducive for catching 
pneumonia. This semester twice a week I am required to 
sit in this icebox for two long weeks in a row. I find that 
at the end of this time, even if I wear long underwear, a 
sweater, and keep my coat and hat on, and gloves, that 
my fingernail beds have become cyanotic or blue. And 
that it takes about 2 hours for me to 'thaw out' after being 
subjected to this chilling. 

What will it take to have the heating in this room 

A frozen student 
Dear Frozen, 

You're Not Kidding! It Is Cold! I spoke with Mr. 
Tasker about the situation, and as he explained to me, 
there is a problem with some of the system's equipment 
which will require a complete re-vamping of the building's 
heating unit. This will take place at the end of this school 
year, however, he did assure me that a temporary solution 

to the problem is being sought.

Last Wednesday night, many early sleepers were jolted 
from their beds by a sound reminiscent of the first Con- 
federate charge at Bull Run. This uproar of shouts and 
rebel yells represented D.V.C's first large-scale snowball 
fight of the season, and brought an unusual change of 
pace to the usually serene nighttime atmosphere of the 

The ruckus began at approximately eleven-thirty 
p.m., when the majority of Elson Hall residents attacked 
stray members of Wolfsohn with balls of newly fallen 
snow. While Elson moved on to make enemies of the 
remaining dorms, a small force from Wolfsohn charged 
through the home of the cowboys, leaving a trail o? white 
powder behind. A new skirmish errupted between the two 
predominatly freshman dorms, and then suddenly hostil- 
ities ceased as the two teams allied and set their sights on 

Ullman Hall stood well prepared. The combined' 
forces of Wolfsohn and Elson, some fifty strong, bom- 
barded Ullman with snowballs. Undoubtabiy inspired by 
old movies of gladiators pouring boiling oil from the 
castle ramparts, the residents of Ullman retaliated by 
dumping buckets of water on the attackers below. The 
fight ended when several members of Ullman charged 
their opponents with garbage pails of water, sending them 
back over the snow. Wolfsohn, Elson, and Ullman then 
allied. New members joined, and soon a mob of well over 
one hundred was storming over the campus, pelting 
windows, shouting at the top of their lungs, and charging 
past security guards. 

The general rampage ended shortly after twelve, but 
small individual groups continued wreaking havoc until 
well into the morning hours.

Here at Del Val, Ginkgo (Maidenhair Tree) is a well 
known plant. It is easily recognized by the fan shaped 
leaves and the odor of the fruit in the Fall. 

It has never been found growing wild, but is believed 
to have originated in Northern China. For many centuries 
it has been grown in the Temple Gardens of China and 
japan, thus preventing it's extinction. Ginkgo is tolerant 
of urban conditions and makes a good street tree. Pistil- 
late trees are seldom planted due to the fruit's rancid odor. 
Some of the trees around Segal Hall are pistillate, and al- 
though the outer part of the fruit smells, the pits are 
edible after being boiled in water. Anyone interested in 
having this delicacy served in the Dining Hall should see 
the Food Committee right away!

One of the first things you must consider while trav- 
elling abroad is where you are going to sleep. Sure, there's 
the woods or even a hotel. But your best bet is a youth 
hostel. It is a sure way to meet fellow travelers your own 
age. I've stayed in youth hpstels throughout America, 
Europe, and the Middle East and have found them to be 
quite comfortable. I travelled in Canada this past summer 
from the east coast to the west coast. For 50^ a da> , I got 
breakfast, dinner, and a place to sleep for the night. They 
were in every town in every province. For $10.00 vou can 
be a member of American Youth Hostels. I highly recom- 
mend it if you want to do some travelling. The address is:

can then make your own study, review or textboolc notes 
on the left-hand pages.

hold them for die appropriate moment. They might be 
answered or become unimportant in a few minutes. But if 
not, youll want to have them answered either in class or 

Be alert to the Instructor's tone, emphasis or ques- 
tions. Thesemay be clues to things that will appear on an 
exam. For example, if Professor Smith says, "Five import- 
ant reasons for the treaty were ..." or Remember now 
. . . ", you can be sure those are things to be recorded. 

Class lectures and textbook assignments do not al- 
ways parallel each other. Your class notes will reflect the 
instructor's approach to the topic, but you might find it 
helpful to make additional notes from your textbook on 
the left-hand page across from your class notes. 

Design your notetaking system so that you have suf- 
ficient room to record the instructor's material, your 
reading notes AND your review notes on one page to two 
oppsite pages. 

Remember, review your ciais notes as soon as 
possible after the session has ended. In this way you'll be 
able to correct, clarify or fill-in where necessary. This re- 
view time will also b« critical In helping you remember 
the class material when It is fresh in your mind. 

On style of notetaking, developed at Cornell Univer- 
sity, has been very helpful to students. On every right- 
hand page, draw a verticlal line from top to bottom, 2)4 
inches in from the left side. In class use the large 6 inch 
column on the right for recording the lecture material. 
After class and during study times, use the smaller left- 
hand column for making your own review notes. By 
marking down the key word, idea or fact, it can help you 
remember what you are studying and iielp you review 
for exams. Some students fmd it helpful to use a colored 
marker or pen during review to underline the Important 
words or phrases. 

Completing textbook or reading assignments before 
eacii class will help minimize notetaking in class. You 
will know whether the material under discussion Is in the 
text or not. You will already have underlined the im- 
portant ideas in the book, so you won't have to duplicate 
these same facts write "refer to textbook chapter." 

Typing or rewriting notes is normally a waste of time, 
if they are legible, accurate and complete It is much more 
productive to spend your time reviewing the notes, read- 
ing your text and keeping up every day and every week 
with your studies.

On Tuesday, January 30, the Del Val varsity basket- 
ball team pulled off an exciting last minute victory over 
the Scranton Royals 93 - 90. The Aggies led at the end of 
the first half by Scranton took control most of the second 
half. In the final minutes, steals by Tom Kehoe ted Del 
Val to their comeback from a six point deficit and saving 
what first appeared to be an Aggie choke. With seconds 
remaining, Jim Mcshea made a critical save denying the 
Royals of any chance to win. 

Scoring for the Aggies were Tom Kehoe 28 points, 
|lm Mcshea 25, jim Mitchell 12, Bill Walter 8, Tom Walsh 
and Mark Werkiser each had 6, Mark Tymes 4, and Tom 
Robinson 2.

At the time this article was written, Aggie basketball 
standout Ken Mitchell only needed 8 points to become 
the seventh student in Delaware Valley's history to Kore 
a career 1000 points. Ken has been shooting 58% from 
the field and is the team's second leading rebounder. A 
presenution will be made for Ken at the Aggies final 
game of the season on February 14, in the James Work 
Gymnasium before the game. Everyone in this school 
should make it a point to be there. A fellow student 
deserves plenty of recognition for this outstanding 

achievement, if you have not been to any games, please at 
least come to this one, it's special.

Warren Robertson and Art Shuil manhandled their 
opponents as the Aggie wrestlers cruised by Kings College, 
to continue their winning ways. Art Shull put on a display 
of wrestling technique while, annihilating his opponent 
24-2. It was no contest as Art dominated from beginning 
to end. Other victories were by: Dave Zawisa, dec; Craig 
Edgerton, forfiet; Tony Novak, dec; Al Kurnlath, dec; 
Paul Pearson, pin; Mike Danis, dec. Losing close matches 
were Greg Peltz and Jeff Bartolomew. 

However, the highlight of the night was Warren 
Robertson pinning his opponent as he has done so many 
times before. He has recently gone over 100 victories in 
his career and, is one of the area's best wrestlers. He seems 
to be a sure favorite in the upcoming dedication, and 
inner self-confidence attributing for his past success; his 
record of victories speaks for Itself. He seems to bring rise 
to the occasion. But, one thing is for sure, if Warren says 
he'll win, you can believe he can back up his words.

On Wednesday, February 7, M. Wood catering ser- 
vice presented a lunch buffet to the students. When the 
doors opened at 11:43, there was a feast laid out that 
would have made any mouth water. With soft rolls and 
cold cuts the students were free to make their own sand- 
wiches. For the heartier appetites there were hot meat- 
balls to be served in hoagie rolls. This was truly a meal to 
be remembered. Mr. David Moycr, manager of the David 
Levin Dining Hall, is one man who will never forget. 
What should have been a picnic relief from nerve-raclcing 
classes turned out to be a chaotic frenzy. Wild with delight 
from an unexpected cancelling of afternoon classes, the 
students took far too much advantage of what could have 
been a good thing for all. A total of 750 students con> 
sumed altogether 400 lbs. of various meats and cheeses, 
60 lbs. of meatballs, 90 dozen rolls, 40 loaves of bread, 
and 200 red beet eggs. Per student that is an average of 
.S3 lbs. of various meats and cheeses, 1/12 lbs. of meat- 
balls, 1V^ rolls, 214 slices of bread, and a quarter of an 
egg to boot. That is a pretty mean appetite. 

But then we all know that not that much food was 
eaten at one time. The amount of waste that people 
dumped into the dish room left over on their trays was 
ridiculous. It would have been no miracle for Jesus' 
disciples to have gathered twelve baskets of leftovers from 
this crowd. 

And then there is the matter of theft. Much food 
was wrapped in napkins and plastic bags to be saved for 
a later date. What an opportunity to stock up a Gem 

This is not funny though. It is not cool to waste or 
steal food. You wonder why boarding bills rise. Each 
person that allows this theft and neglect to happen is as 
guilty as the acting party. 

Needless to say, the food got a high rating by all who 
attended. Asked if he would consider providing another 
such buffet, Mr. Moyer replied with devotion to his 
patrons, "Probably." 


On Tuesday, March 6, at the Bucks County Audubon 
Society's regular membership meeting. Donald and Esther 
Phillips will present an informative ornithology program.

Mr. Phillips will have available a limited edition print 
of Canada Geese and his book, OWLS BY DAY AND

Dear Editor, 

At the beginning of the semester a notice was pub- 
lished in this newspaper concerning the Sub-Compact 
section of the parking lot. As I recall this article indicated 
strict enforcement of the Sub-Compact only area. Since 
then many cars have been ticketed for being too large for 
the section. The ticketing of cars is not my complaint 
because strict enforcement was promised by the Chief of 
Security. My complaint in the inconsistency of their 
ticketing. On one occasion a mustang was not considered 
a sub-compact and was consequently ticketed. On a second 
occasion it was not ticketed for being in a sub-compact 
space. As a concerned student as I'm sure others feel I 
would like to see the policy be followed consistently. 


A couple of years ago a railroad club was organized 
on this campus with the intention of promoting the 
growing hobby of model railroading. Since then we have 
constructed a layout, which currently measures 10 x 21 
feet. Our meetings are every Tuesday night at 6:30, and 
we meet in the basement of the Administration Building, 
(the small building next to the Allman Building, and the 
entrance is around back). So if you are interested in Model 
Railroading or just curious, come out to a meeting, and 
see us.

Friday night disco move over, you've been outdone. 
The standard weekend dance was replaced last Friday by 
a taste of good old southern honky-tonk anarchy, as the 
country-rock band Cowtown picked Its way into the 
hearts of a packed house. 

The evening was pasted with fast-paced repertories of 
tunes by famous southern rock bands: Charlie Daniels, 
Lynyrd Skynyrd, New Riders, The Outlaws, and The 
Ozark Mountain Daredevils, to name a few. Among the 
more well-received selections were the classic Flatt A 
Scruggs tune "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" "Rocky 
Top, Tennessee," and an outstanding rendition of 
Skynyrd's "Free Bird," which stirred the audience Into a 

Shortly before the concert began, a banner reading 
"Cowtown: Death To Disco," was paraded before the 
crowd. The reaction of the band's steel guitarist typified 
that of the spectators. He summed it up in one word, 
"AiriiligggghhhhtttH" The banner was received with 
thunderous applause by the audience, who finally got 
their chance to strike back. For more than a year now we 
have been bombarded by the media with disco records, 
dance lessons, TV shows, commercials, magazine articles, 
and the music itself. Last Friday the other side was heard. 

By the third set of the evening Cowtown had elated 
Its audience into a mood which is rarely witnessed in the 
presence of flashing lights and electronic music. Although 
considered a concert, the electric fiddle and banjo had the 
masses stomping, screaming, and dancing on every empty 
foot of the floor, on chairs and on tables. The rythmic 
clapping and whooping to the music never stopped. 

The evening passed quickly, and althou^ some of 
the audience lost interest, most stayed and had a fantastic 
night. Owing to the tremendous reception of the per- 
formance, it would not be unjustified to say that Cow- 
town is welcome back any time.

Once again the American Red Cross is aslcing for 
your blood. Thanlcs to the cooperation of the students 
and faculty last semester's goal of 200 pints was easily 
exceeded. Blood donation is a chance for you to do some- 
thing for others. It's easy, quick, and there is no commit- 
ment involved. If you gave blood last semester enough 
time has passed and you can safely give again. If at all 
possible please give this semester. The goal this semester is 
100 plus pints. That should be easy since last semester 
over 200 pints were donated in the amount of time. 
The Blood drive is scheduled for February 22 from 9:30 
to 2:30 in the old gym. Please come out and give your 
time and your blood.

With graduation looming before us, be It two or 
three years in the future or be it three and a half months 
away, a queitlon haunts many of us with an every in- 
creasing intenrity. 

"Will I ever get married?" 

Unfortunately many people latch on to the first 
thing with two legs that comes their way. This has led to 
;a hi^ rate of broken engagements and, worse yet, broken 
marriages. Because of tfte alarmingly high sutistics of di- 
vorce in the U.S.A., many have taken to living together 
on a trial and error basis before making any binding 
commitments. This type of relationship is most often too 
shallow to lead into anything permvient. As a result 
people are plagued with Inconsistent life-styles and 
neurasthenia (nervous breakdowns). The results are 
notoriously characteristic of yesterday's generatiop. To- 
day there are movements and organizations to put mar- 
ria^ back into its proper perspective. There are many 
tNwks (Hit by scholars across the nation that have experi-

FRIDAY, MARCH 2, 1979 

NOTICE: The opinions expressed in any Individual article do not necessarily represent the viewpoint of the paper or of the school. 


Once again DVC pulled through, by surpassing lu 
goal for the amount of blood donated through the Red 
Cross Bloodmobile. This spring's drive netted 111 pints 
which was 11 pints over the expected goal. Mrs. Cornell, 
the nurse, thanked all those who gave blood and the RA's 
and APO for helping with registration sign-ups. Next fail 
there will be another drive which Is hoped to be even 
more successful. 


by Anne Hassoldt 
There has recently been a change in the staff at DVC 
Mr. Steven Zcnko has been appointed Acting Director of 
Residence Life replacing Mr. SiUrski as Director. Mr. 
Zenko has been at Del Vail for some time. He was a 
Student here, graduating In 1969 and has been in the 
Admissions Office until recently. The Collegian inter- 
viewed Mr. Zenko about his new position. 

My first question was "How do you feel about your 
new position?" Mr. Zenko's reply was positive. He said 
that "it was a definite step up and will be a challenge". 
He also liked the change and that it still offered him the 
chance to work with the students and deal with their 
questions and problems. He did feel it was time for a 
change in his career and he looks forward to this new 
career. Having been a student here I, asked him if this 
would help him in any way. His reply was that it would 
definitely be a positive aspect. He also said that the 
philosophy of the college has changed since he was a 
student, but for the better. The college has become 
Co-ed which he feels has been a definite plus. Mr, Zenko 
was also a Resident Assistant for three years so he feels 
that he can see both sides of the story and deal with 
problems for the benefit of both sides, A question I felt 
was important was if he foresaw any changes in student 
policy. His reply was that there would not be any im- 
mediate changes in the policies proposed by Mr. SiUrski. 
During the summer new policies will' be developed and 
installed. A major issue concerning students and student 
life is the proposal of the 21 dorms. When asked how he 
felt about this, Mr. Zenko's reply was favorable. He feels 
it is a step in the right direction and also means progress 
not only for the administration, but also for the students. 
These proposals are a good start to giving 21 year olds the 
rights they are entitled too. It is not near finialization but 
should be by pre-registration. He docs ask that students 
feel free to come to him with suggestions and problems 
concerning themselves and student life on campus, I was 
very comfortable around him and also encourage students 
to Ulk with our new Director of Resident Life. When 
asked about why he was chosen and what are his duties 
to be Mr. Zenko referred me to Mr, Robert ), Tasker, 
Dean of Students, 

I went to see Mr. Tasker and asked him these ques- 
tions, his reply was that he felt Mr. Zenko was the best 
choice for the job. He feels that It Is best to fit the job to 
the right person and reviewing Mr. Zenko's background 
Mr. Tasker felt It was the right choice. After talking with 
both men I agree with the choice and I believe other 

students will agree. Mr, Tasker was also able to explain 
some of the duties of this position. They Include, pri- 
marily to administer the total housing program. This 
also Includes administering and supervising the Residence 
Hall SUff Program throughout the various housing units, 
administering room assignments which reflect fairness, 
accuracy and accountability. Another responsibility is 
offering counseling to students concerning personal 
matters. There are several other responsibilities included 
in the position; these ar'e the main ones. Both men feel 
the position has been well filled and that all will continue 
to run smoothly. As a student, I feel Mr, Zenko's appoint- 
ment will be a definite asset for the students and student 
life as well as an asset to the college. We all wish Mr. 
Zenko the best and continued success. 


Founders Day this semester will be observed on 
March 6th and will be recognized by a convocation at 
3:30 in the Rudley Neuman Gym. The program will be 
presided by Larry Middleton '64 who Is currently the 
chairman of the Board of Directors of the College. The 
address will be given by senior Rabbi Bertrum Korn of 
the Reformed Congregation, Keneseth Israel. All stu- 
dents and faculty are welcome to attend the program 
honoring Dr. Krauskopf and Dr. Work.

The DVC Christian Fellowship has recently gone

March 14, 1979 is the 100th anniversary of the 
birth of Albert Einstein, and all periodicals of general 
readership are getting in their stories about him. And 
inevitably, after only honoring the debt modern science 
owes him, the tumultuous change he brought to our 
understanding of the universe, and his historic letter to 
FDR concerning the Nazis and the "A"-bomb, they do 
not fail to mention that Albert Einstein did not regularly 
wear socks. 

I've beset myself to wondering which of these Is 
most important to us. He stands perhaps larger as a mon- 
ument to our dependence on social form than as an 
exemplary instance of the human capacity to think and 
to create. 

It seems that more of our personal energies go to the 
appeasement of social detail than to those activities which 
are unique to conscious beings. And our institutions are 
often swifter to avenge the breaking of the code than they 
are to acknowledge the accomplishments of the human 
mind. And we at DVC are not alone in submitting to this 
omnipresent code; in our society, it is pervasive. 

More is involved than mismatched socks. 

We are "educated" in an atmosphere much stronger 
in structure than in content. We can be shuffled through 
classes by attendance, pass exams by regurgitation of 
codified but meaningless ink-scratchings, and graduate 
by persistence. Structure is somewhat inevitable in any 
underuking, but we face a serious moral demise when we 
permit it to dominate content as it often (not always) 
does here. It is a mechanism which permits and encour- 
ages us to absolve ourselves from responsibility for our 
education and enlightenment by passing the buck. We 
can attain a certificate of achievement that belies our 
lack of true, self-guided individual achievement. 

But It is possible for an individual to be more than a 
preassembled, half-programmed, graduated biomachine. It 
is past due time that we took our noses out of the sports 
column, out of the gossip column, and put our ears and 
minds to the pulse of our lives. Bucky Fuller aptly calls 
this "local focus, hocus pokus". Our understanding of the 
universe ought not be scarred by association with curric- 
ulum, and course-outline ought not be mistaken for the 
horizons of truth. Failing calculus does not predetermine 
a loathing for mathematics so much as it indicates i fail- 
ure of the student/classroom/teacher subsystem to 

It is important that one man at least transcended the 
color of his socks to speculate on the nature of time, 
matter, and energy, and the relationship between man and 
nation, and the essence of eternity.

Through observing the flow of traffic Into the Nurse's 
office a pattern would be noticed, A sudden rush of pa- 
tients during the rainy season may denote an outbreak of 
colds. Other such 'bugs' seem to break out in epidemics 
the send similar throngs In to absorb the demlnlshing sup- 
plies of antibiotics and pain relievers. There is one disease, 
however, that seems to have a steady flow of victims. If 
observed closely enough It may even be seen to form a 
gradually increasing slope. This disease Is loneliness. 

Whether loneliness storms from physical (sexual) 
deprivation, lack of social life, menUl or physical deform- 
ities, or personal disasters (death of friend, pregnancy, 
etc.), It always strikes home to the heart. Though most 
diseases are Ueated by removing the source, loneliness 
must be treated from the inside out. 

Before treatment for loneliness can begin, one must 
be equipped with proper tools. These tools are not mechan- 
ical instruments that can be bought but, rather, are gifu 
and feelings that must be developed. Often a soft expres- 
sion or a warm hand will do the job but usually an open 
ear and an open heart are essential. 

There are many on this campus, right here at DVC, 
that arc suffering from the various levels of depression 
from loneliness. To conquer this disease we must shatter 
our shallow relationships and open up to the true beauty 
of loving each other as friends. We must reach out to 
those that are weaker than us and guide them into the 
ranks. For those of us that are suffering from loneliness 
ourselves, we must deny ourselves and, again, reach out to 
those even weaker souls. This may seem like an unneces- 
sary risk to our stability, but infact, we must walk out on 
a limb before we can picic the fruit.

Whether we realize it or not, last week all were sub- 
ject to an annual form of torture known as the February 
Thaw, This thaw usually hits around the twentieth with 
a day or two of warm weather and brilliant skies. Al- 
though not nearly as outrageous as hurricanes, tornadoes, 
or the like, the thaw, and what follows it, rank high on 
the list of natural depressants to the human spirit. 

This year's thaw was one of the less spectacular, yet 
it had the same affect on winter-weary students as any 
others. With the sudden increase in temperature, the high 
level of tension resulting from weeks In cramped quarters 
was suddenly broken. 

The balmy air began to work on the mind. Lulled 
into the impression that one would not see his breath in 
the morning for at least the next half year, we though 
ahead. The athletes were already making plans: playing 
baseball on spongy emerald grasson cool April afternoons, 
hitting tennis balls in the warm spring dusk, or jogging 
down a green country road at night. Farmers itched to 
plow the once frozen earth for the first time, to watch 
the fields spring to life again. Even the most dedicated 
students can't say they didn't push aside their studies for 
just a while to stare out of the window and dream about 
that brief time of the year between freezing cold and 
blistering heat. 

You had only to open your window on that warm 
Wednesday evening nine days ago and all of a sudden it 
all came back: the feeling of a balmy spring night, 
lounging on a street corner in shirtsleeves, and driving 
with the windows open. Yes, spring seemed to be just 
around the corner, until you made the mistake of turning 
on your stereo, only to be snapped back to reality. 
"WMMR Accu weather calls for increasingly cloudy skies 
with decreasing temperatures and a chance. . . ." Then 
you remembered, it was only mid-February. Ahead lay 
more cold, more raw, miserable weather, and the frigid 
gales of March. All at once, the prospect of outdoor 
greenery seemed a long way off.

When was the last time you can remember that 
you "rocked around the clock until broad daylight?" 

If you can't remember the last time you wore your 
saddle shoes and dirndl skirt or tucked a cigarette pack in 
the sleeves of your shirt, then you'd better not miss the 
chance to get greased up Friday, March 9 when the 
"Fabulous Greaseband Rock 'n Roll Revue" will be 
appearing at a dance/concert here at OVC. 

Admission is $1.00 for Class of '79 members, $2.00

Greaseband is on its way to national acclaim. They are 
visually and musically entertaining, well rehearsed, care- 
fully managed, talented, intelligent and energetic. The 
band is often compared to Sha Na Na however, members 
of the band believe there are great differences. "We don't 
soup up any of the oldies, we try to do them authen- 
tically. Our audience wants to hear the oldies the way 
they are supposed to be done. 

The band will revive the sound of such groups as 
the Coasters, Drifters, Beach Boys, Dion and the Bel- 
monts plus many, many more. 

So if you want a really fun night out rock'n and 
roH'n, hop'n and hop'n, don't miss the "Fabulous Grease-

We have received many questions as to why WAPO is 
not coming through in the Dining Hall and why you are 
unable to get it on the radio while on campus. 

Our answer to this is: we have not been able to 
acquire the amplifier and tube needed to broadcast, 
because of a lack of funds. Don't worry about it too 
much though; we're trying to think of ways to raise the 
money and if you would like to be of help, just read next 
weeks issue of the COLLEGIAN to find out how. Then

audience last Wednesday night. Although the combina- 
tion of five trumpets, two drummers, six other players, 
and a frantic crowd brought the volume close to that of 
an artillery duel, the performance was still a treat for any- 
one with the slightest interest in modern jazz. 

The audience, composed of both Delaware Valley 
students and local fans, spent the evening in total enjoy- 
ment and appreciation of Ferguson's performance. Need- 
less to say, such a response is not brought on by a tribe of 
stonefaced zombies who stay riveted to one spot on the 
sUge all night. The enthusiastic band captivated the on- 
lookers for nearly three hours with its powerful, magnetic 

The only disappointment expressed with the con- 
cert was that Ferguson failed to play some of his more 
popular tunes, namely "Chameleon" and "Country 
Road." Yet although the selections presented were un- 
familiar, they wer<; eagerly accepted by the audience. 
The theme from "Rocky," played as an encore, brought 
the screaming fans to their feet, and helped to confirm 
that the concert was a tremendous success, (aesthetically, 
but not financially.) 


According to Dr. lames Harner, Superintendent of 
the Delaware Valley College Dairy, the Brown Swiss herd, 
for herds with 25 cows or less, was judged to be first for 
fat and second for milk in Pennsylvania with the following 

10.2 cows 14.2321b. milk 4.4% fat 633 lb. fat 
DVC Loa Mickey was second high cow in Pennsyl- 
vania for fat production with the following record: 
Age Calving 

4yr. 3mos. 30 days 17,702 milk 5.1% fat 

902 lb. fat 
Ths State Association awarded the College three 
Swiss Cow Bells for the herds' outstanding achievement. 


As sure as Spring showers are due to arrive soon, so 
to can you anticipate the renewal of financial forms for 
the coming academic year. Of course Spring flowers are 
more fun, but, mundane as it seems, financial aid awards 
are Important. Deadline dates of April and May 1st are 
fast approaching -don't delay!! The Student Financial 
Aid Office is bursting with information and applications.

The recent turmoil and turn over of events in Iran 
hjis many political and moral implications, not only for 
herself, but for the rest of the world as well. 

The government under the Shah as well as The Shah 
himself was corrupt. The tactics used by his administra- 
taion did not follow any sort of moral or ethical code. 
However, it must be kept, in our minds that an extra- 
ordinary series of developments brought about by this 
man led Iran .o be one of the most technologically 
advanced countries in the Middle-East, as well as the 
rest of the world. A tremendous leap in her economy has 
also taken place. 

Of course all these benefits do not out weigh the 
moral breakdown of his administration. However, the 
present revolution is certainly far from the answer to an 
Oppressive rule of the Shah,. 

The ideology expressed by the Ayatollah represents 
an unjust, one-sided system, essentially blocking out all 
ideas that are not Islamic, the non-Islamic inhabitants 
now living in Iran will certainly not be equal to their 
fellow Islamic citizens. 

Iran Is taking a step 700 years backwards into time. 
She is essentially against every political and social, as well 
as economic, idea expressed by the West. 

The recent revolution in Iran is not the answer to the 
troubled government led by the Shah. A socially, just sys- 
tem, as well as equality for all of Iran's citizen's is the 
change Iran should be striving for.

With the Philadelphia Flower Show and A-Day 
quickly approaching, it's time to consider entering your 
Housepiant(s) in the competitive classes. The plant 
doesn't have to be large or rare and you don't have to be 
an expert. However, there are a number of things you can 
do to help make an ordinary plant a show quality specimen. 
Of course it should be free of Insects and diseases. 
Prune off or trim any dead, dying, or blemished leaves 
and flowers. Rinse the plant in luke warm water to remove 
any dust or visible traces of insecticide. African Violets 
and other hairy leaved plants can be cleaned the same way, 
but it is especially important to let them dry in a warm, 
shady area to prevent permanent leaf spotting. Foliage 
and any flowers should appear symmetrical unless pur- 
posely grown otherwise. This is very important with 
African Violets and other Rosette-forming plants. Stems 
should not be bare and straggly. The plant should be in 
good proportion to it's pot and the pot should be clean. 
It's an unwritten rule that plants in clay pots score higher 
than equal quality plants in plastic pots. Size and rarity 
are of secondary importance. 

Take a chance and enter your favorite plant. You 
might just win a ribbon, but even if you don't, you will 
have had the experience of participateing in a Flower 

Dear Editor, 

Regarding the letter appearing in "Commuter Cor- 
ner" in the December 8th issue of the COLLEGIAN 
concerning social activities programming, I too agree 
that commuters should have some concern for enter- 
tainment expenditures on this campus. The commuters 
are not getting their money's worth out of the social 
events sponsored by Student Government, financed 
through the Student Government fee and a percentage of 
the Activities fee paid by each student. Commuter attend- 
ance at events has always been poor. Commuters are 
about one third of the college population; and if they 
attended events in proportion to the rest of the student 
body, these functions would be enjoyed by more people 
and the money spent on the events would be done so 
more wisely. 

True, the majority of these events, expensive and 
inexpensive, are held in the evening and necessitate the 
commuters having to return to campus to attend them. 
Commuters travel back to their own school to see pro- 
grams at reasonable rates. Evidently many do not feel like 
returning to the college after being here for classes, hence 
many (most) commuters do not attend. 

This then brings to mind the Daytime programs 
that have been put on for the last few semesters. Most 
of them took place in Segal Hall during lunch hours, and 
still some were poorly attended while others attracted 
only the attention of the small number of people in the 
room at the time. So, our feeling is why have big expen- 
sive programs during the day when the Daytime Programs 
we do have are poorly attended. 

Concerning the statement that commuters should 
not be ignored (whatever that means); they are not. In 
fact, they are the ignorer most of the time. They ignore, 
for the most part, stacks of student government minutes, 
COLLEGIANS and "This Week on Campus" in Segal 
Hall. Also a good number of the calenders placed in the 
commuter mailboxes (yes, each of you has one) in Ulman 
Hall are either thrown away or never picked up. Signs 
advertising upcoming events are always posted in Segal 
Hall and classroom buildings, not just the Dorms and the 
Dining Hall. With all the effort made to publicize events 
through the aforementioned methods, how can anyone 
say the commuters are ignored? 

Another statement concerned a "College Hour" 
during which no classes would be scheduled and programs 
could be put on for all to enjoy. This is a fine idea and 
will be brought up before Student Government; but until 
the long process of instituting such a change can be 
approved and initiated the situation will, unfortunately 
have to remain the way it is. 

In conclusion I believe that equal attention has been 
offered to all, and there will continue to be equal demand 
for student fees. Commuters do not enjoy the same 
benefits as resident students because they do not take 
advantage of them; not because they are taken advantage 
of by Student Government. I agree, commuters are at a 
disadvantage living off campus and having to drive every- 
where. Do the majority of them a/low this to work to 
their detriment? I believe they do. I am tired of hearing 
that commuters are "left out of everything". The respon- 
sibility for allowing themselves to be left out, lies with the 
commuter and no one else.

An exciting and competitive intramural sport that is 
seldom experienced at Del Val is power lifting. This year, 
the weightlifting club is promoting this potentlaliy 
fascinating and successful event in the hopes of encour- 
aging all of those student weightlifters to put all of their 
strength and good effort toward a vigorous, breath taking, 
and self rewarding challenge. 

Last year, DVC challenged Montgomery County 
Community College to a similar face to face challenge, 
with our school pulling in a hard, well faught victory. This 
year, we would like to see the same spirit, sportsmanship, 
and effort prevail, but this time as an intramural sport. 

The time and date of the competition is tenta- 
tively set for sometime late In April. 

In addition to this event, we are re-establishing 
the previously defunct "300" club. Students become 
memt>er$ by demonstrating their weightlifting ability by 
bench pressing 300 or nrrore pounds. In addition to club 
membership, they also get their name engraved on a 
plaque in the Gym lobby showcases. For details regarding 
either activity, please contact Scott Abrams or )im 
Bardsley in Uiman 105, or attend the organizational 
meeting on Thursday, March IS, at 7:00 in the basement 
of Segal Hall.

With the weather being as miserable as it is, I suggest 
v^e take a trip to Jamaica, West Indies. Round trip fare 
from Philadelphia is about $250. If you want to drive to 
Miami, Florida round trip is $100. Book a flight to 
Montego Bay, because the other airport located in Kings- 
ton is bad news. Kingston has some of the worst crimes in 
the world, whereas Montego Bay is pretty mellow. 

The' average temperature in Jamaica is 85 degrees 
farenheit, and of course you are surrounded by an in- 
credible plush, tropical, mountainous landscape. The 
people are beautiful and their language. Pigeon English, 
is equally beautiful combined with and English and 
African dialect. 

As we move along the coast from Montego Bay via 
local buses (taxis will rip you off) we come to Ocho Rios 
which you II want to visit with its incredible waterfalls. 
After this you'lJ want to see Port Antonio with its primi- 
tive fishermen the Rasts Faris, descendants of very primi- 
tive Ethiopian tribe. For about $2.00 per night just about 
any family will let you stay with them in Port Antonio's 
hills just above the beach. If you enjoy camping, I sug- 
gest you try a campground called Strawberry Hills. If 
you want the feeling of the country, check out a town 
called Negril. Negril has a seven mile strip of beach with 
incredible snorkeling and fishing. The villagers will be glad 
to take you into their homes for about $3.00 a night 
including breakfast, rum, and all the gauga you can 
smoke. There is a bar in Negril that comes to life from 
8:00 pm to 2 00 am where you can dance to the best 
reggae music all night long. 

WORD OF CAUTION: Although Jamaica has gauga 
(marijuana) everywhere for about $2.00 per ounce, it 
is highly illegal and the authorities would not hesitate 
to lock you up if they found gauga among your posses- 

Jamaica is the most beautiful tropical island I've ever 
visited. In fact I lived there for three months and found it 
very difficult to leave. The history and landscape of the 
country is endless. 

I hope to see you next winter sunning on the Negril 
Beach, and when I do, the beer's on me.

chemical field. See you at the show! 


Dear Commuter Corner, 

As a Freshman commuter I have just experienced my 
first winter at DVC. The major comment, I feel, that 
needs to be made Is that the conditions of the parking lots 
were disgraceful. The packed snow and Ice made driving 
extremely hazardous to the students forced to park their 
cars under these conditions. 

Is it too much to ask that snow removal be more 
efficient. The cinders that were spread along the lanes had 
little or no effect on the driving conditions on campus. 
Salt, on the other hand, would have at least started to 
melt the ice and decrease the probability of accidents. I 
can safely say that the fender bender that I had could 
have been avoided if the lot had been cleared correctly. 

t propose that a more conscientious method of 
snow removal be employed, or that each student be 
equipped with a bag of rock salt. 

The fees we pay at this college should entitle us to 
the safest po»ible conditions. If not then classes should 
be canceled until the parking lot conditions are brought 
under control. 

Hopefully, next year will bring about a few changes 
so that we won't have to worry about poor driving condi- 
tions, or getting to class on time. 

Thank you, 

A Concerned Student 


Though we realize the problems with the parking lot 
situation, we must keep in mind that the past snowfall 
was particularly heavy. In a snowfall that heavy, there are 
only so many places that the snow can be pushed. This 
presents a great problem in snow removal. If school had 
been closed until the snow was removed it would have 
cost us class time and money to have the snow hauled 
away. The cinders are our cheapest way of helping the 
driving situation. The salt spreading, which is more expen- 
sive, will be looked into for next winter's conditions. 



There will be a seminar on Beginning Beekeeping

Six DVC wrestlers competed in the N.C.A.A. Wres- 
tling Tournament held last weekend at Humbolt College 
In Areata, California. Although all wrestlers had good 
showing, there was one definite standout. 

Mike Danis a senior, placed 8 out of 32 qualifiers 
In the 167 pound weight class. In doing so, Mike became 
an ALL-AMERICAN, which in itself is a very prestegious 
honor, and not a bad way to end an excellent college 
career. Mike's been very consistent all year long; He 
wrestles with a lot of technique but, that's not to say he 
isn't physical, He's just real smooth. At any rate,wayto be 
Mike, we're real proud of you. 

Other action saw Dave Zawisza, 118 pounds lose his 
first match; Art Shull had to withdraw from the tourna- 
ment due to an injury suffered in practice. Paul Pearson 
made it to the third round before being eliminated in the 
158 pound weight class. At 177, Warren Robertson won 
two matches before being defeated and Jeff Bartholomew 
lost in the second round of the heavyweight division. 

Congratulations to all the competitors, especially 
seniors Mike Danis, Art Shull, and Dave Zawisza; And 
returning sophomores Paul Pearson, Warren Robertson, 
and |eff Bartholomew. 

Coach Lombard! presents Ken Mitchell with game ball. 
Standing next to Ken is his wife. 


On Thursday, February 8, in Madison New jersey. 
Junior student Ken Mitchell became the seventh basket- 
ball player irt Del Val's history to exceed 1000 Points. 
The magic basket came against Fairleigh Dickinson Uni- 
versity near the end of the first half. 

Ken finished this season with a 19 point scoring aver- 
age and his 247 points this year gives him a 3 year college 
carrier of 1024 points! 

Aside from being one of the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference's leading scorers, Mitch plays an excellent de- 
fense and is the Aggies second leading rebounder. 

A presentation was made for Ken prior to Del 
Val's final season game against Lycoming on February 14, 
where a spirited crowd awarded him with a well deserved 
standing ovation. 

Team mates and friends offer only fine words for 
Ken. A very proud coach Lombard! says that Ken is one 
of the quietest scorers he has knoyn and holds high hopes 
for the return of Mitch with another' fine season. 

Coach Lombardi's high hopes are held by all of Del 
Val's basketball fans. Once more from everyone. CON-

Perhaps unknown to many students on campus the 
Olympic games have come to DVC. There are two men on 
campus, one training and one trainer for the Olympics. The 
COLLEGIAN visited these two unique men for their story. 

Many students know John Knarr, Head Trainer of 
Athletics, here on campus. John is also to be a trainer for the 

I asked John how he became interested in Athletic Train- 
ing. He replied he became interested when he was a freshman 
in college at the University of Delaware. He worked closely 
with (he trainer at U. of D. and liked it so well he made a 
career of it The University of Delaware had particular 
courses and a program for training, John took these in addition 
to his regular course of study. John worked with the various 
varsity sports on campus, especially Football. In addition to 
such courses as Anatomy and Physiology, Biology, etc. 
practical experience is needed to become a Certified Trainer. 
It takes 4 years and a degree such as Biology or related field 
and actual working hours. A person is then able to qualify to 
take an exam, similar to the Physical Therapy Boards, in 
order to become a certified trainer. 

How were you introduced to the Olympics? John replied 
that he simply read an article in one of his Athletic Journals 
and wrote for information and an application. The response 
allowed him to get into Olympic training. When asked what 
his duties would be, John replied that he was not sure. He did 
not have ail the specific duties or information at the time of the 
interview. He felt that the duties would be similar to what they 
are here at Del Val. John said he would be an assistant trainer 
not the head trainer. It would include basically the care and 
rehabilitation c^ the Olympic candidates. 

As far as John knows he will only be working at the 
summer trails in Colorado Springs, Colorado, but there are 
possibilities of going to the Winter games in Lake Placid, New 
York in 1 980 and a chance of the Summer games in Moscow, 
Russia. When asked what sports would be at the sununer 
trials; John was not sure of the events to be there, but felt that 
Track & Fiekl events would be. John will be going to 
Cobrado, May 15-21. 

I asked John how a person (student) can become a 
trainer. John encourages anycMte interested to do so. What is 
needed is a degree — readily available here on campus — 
Bicriogy and Chemistry are excellent choices, but Animal and 
Dairy Husbandry degrees are also useful. Becoming a student 
trainer and joining the Student Trainer club here on campus is 
a great way to get the practical experience needed. A person 
must accumulate 1800 hours under a Certified Trainer in 
order to qualify to take the exam to become certified themself. 

John is to be congratulated for his achievement and we 
wish him continued success. 

Jdlin Hamilton, a freshman migoring in Ornamental 
Horticulture, is die other Olympic luipeful. Jdm is a speed 
Skater and also a bicycle racer. When asked how he became 
interested in speed skating, John replied he got into the sport 
indirectly. Shelia Ycnmg, 1 976 Olympic gold medalist, told 
John that speed skating would help him improve his bike 
racing. John tried skating and quickly became hooked 

How long have you been skating? John said he has been 
skating for 2 years and bike racing for S years. I asked what all 
was involved in skating such as equi|Mnent and time. The first 
thing necessary is the want to skate, second conies the skates. 
These are a particular, custom skate, usually made in Europe. 
The next thing needed is a skatmg uniform. These are skin 
tight, custom fit suits. All of which are very expensive 
according to John. Time is a necessary factor for any sport — 
skating included. In addition to the hours necessary for the 
actual skating, hours must be put in for exercising. John said 
3-6 hours minimum must be put into exercise which includes 
lifting weights, isometrics, and specific skating exercises. 

John does have a coach who is usually in Lake Placid, 
New York or West AUis, Wisconsin — he helps John with his 
form. John said his bike racing coach also helps. I asked John 
what exactly is speed skating? John replied that it is skating on 
ice at a fast rate (speed).There are 2 types of speed skating 
wxording to John. In the United States speed skating is cm a 
400 meter track, but in a pack. In other words 1 guys skate on 
a track competing for the fastest time and first place. The other 
type of speed skating is the Olympic style. This style involves 
2 guys or girls on a 400 meter track and competing for the 
fastest time. 

Seeing that skating is expensive, I asked John if he was 
sponsored or if he was financing this himself? John said he was 
sponsored for his bike racing, by Paris Sports, but he was 
financing the skating himself. John has several honors for his 
efforts at skating. He came in 8th at the U.S. nationals — 
pack skating. He was second and third in the 1 979 time trails 
in Lake Placid, New York. These all help his chances of being 
on th6 Olympic team. Only skaters with the best times make 
the Olympic team. John, like other athletes, won't know if 
they've made the Olympic team until about 2 weeks before the 
games commence. 

When asked what is most important when skating, John 
said it's a skaters form. The body is in an unnatural position 
and the skater must do specific exercises to accustom the body 
to this position. 

I asked John if he would go to the 1984 Olympic games, 
John's reply "YES"! John also told me about his bike racing 
which he hopes will take him into Olympic competition. We 
wish John continued success with both the skating and racing. 
I'm sure Del Val hopes to see both John Knarr and John 
Hamilton at the Olympics proudly representing the United 
States. Congratulations and Good Luck to you both. 


A formal protest has been filed with the administration 
by football coach Al Wilson after his request for a $50,000 
budget increase was denied. The Coach expressed deep 
dismay in his interview with COLLEGIAN reporters. "We'll 
just have to grit our teeth and bear it," he stated. "I guess there 
won't be any team blazers for the guys this fall." Wilson also 
reluctantly disclosed that the team's troop of coaches would 
be forced to wear the same matching slacks next season. 


Dear Editor, 

We are students residing on the campus who are very 
much concerned about the matter of Mr. Joseph Marron, who 
has been parking his cars illegally in the fire lane between 
Wolfs(^ and Goodman Dorms. Not only is this a nuissance 
to walk around these cars at all hours of the day and night, but 
it is also endangering the lives of the students who reside in 
Wolfsohn, New Dorm and Goldman dormitories. 

You would think that this institution had learned their 
lesson two years ago, in the event of the Ulman Hall fire, 
concerning fire regulations. Several students have already 
taken action in contacting the Fire Marshall, Mr. S. Car- 
withen of Bucks County, and the Chief of Police of Doyles- 
town Township. 

Mr. Marron has also been notified several times about 
placement of his car, which should be parked in his reserved 
parking area of Segal Hall. 

This matter has been brought forward at Student Gov- 
ernment meetings, and Mr. Tasker supposedly assured the 
students of this institution that the matter would be corrected. 

It is ignorant that Mr. Marron can park his cars illegally 

in a space which is harmful to the lives of the students who live 

in the previously mentioned Dorms. The students would 

appreciate that this situation be rectified by the appropriate 


Respectfully submitted.

Delaware Valley College security guards went on strike 
last night at 1 2:01 a.m. when their existii^ contracts expired. 
The conflict centers around a proposed "Spoils CM War 
Clause" which guards are demanding in their new conmuts. 
The clause calls for Vi crf^all beverages confiscated (m raids to 
be divided among the security staff. Presendy, no such 
provision exists in writing. In justifying the demand, a

we want a written guarantee of cmr fair cut of the goods." 


Delaware Valley College received an Award of Merit for 
their exhibit titled " Urban Spring" at the Philadelphia Flower 
and Garden show. The exhibit demonstrates how to utilize 
limited and difficult space through a selection of plant 
materials and constructed materials in a simulated model 
urban row house backyard. The design concept is suitable for

A student committee working with Dr. John Mertz, 
Chairman of the Ornamental Horticulture department and 
Richard Cowhig, Ornamental Horticulture instructor have 
developed and planned the exhibit since May of last year. 


Last week it was discovered that Mr. McClelland, the 
director of the placement and public relations, r^eived a $2.5 
million payment for encouraging graduates to find employ- 
ment with Philadelphia Public Works De(M. It has been 
estimated that over the past five years, nearly 80% of all DVC 
graduates have found their way to this employer. An official 
college spokesperson revealed that McClelland would not be 
prosecuted, as he has agreed to host the faculty, staff, and 
administration to a five week paid vacation to Bermuda. 


Though April Fool's day is coming up, blood is nothing 
to fool around about. Believe it or not, there is currently a 
naticMial shortage of type O positive bkxxl, the most com- 
monly occuring type. If everyone continues to think that since 
it is so common, they do not have to ^ve, the situation caii 
only worsen. Anyone interested in giving blood may contact 
the National Red Cross at 348-8161 or Mr. Cornell in the 

infirmary for more information. _, ,

Acting upon the recommendations of a California re- 
search group, DVC will abolish both tlw grading system and 
the cut limit next semester. The move was based (mi a $4 
millicm government study conducted at U.C.L.A. According 
to prcgect leader Simon Frought, "both grades and cut limits 
are detrimental to the students' growth and learning process 
and will induce lasting jasycholc^cal damage which can 
severely hinder the subject's ability to cope with modem post- 
college society." 


In response to Ute "letter to the editor" March 9 in the 
COLLEGIAN about commuters, I'd like to say once again, 
commuters are put down because of a sterotype which had 
been placed upcm us a time ago. 

I'm not going to tell you why some commuters do not 
attend social activities because it will just be regarded as more 
excuses. If commuters really matter here, I'm sure you are 
well aware of the problems we face. 

I was under the impression that activities put on by the 
student government were for the whole student body. If so, 
then why are commuters ridiculed for poor attendance at 
Segal Hall activities? Rarely did 1 see a resident student atone 
of these activities. Also you say all activities are publicized. 
Evening activities are, tnit day acativities were never publi- 
cized until the last issue of the newspaper. A complaint about 
publicity that I hear about is the last concert. There was 
nothing in Segal Hall about where to get tickets. I found a 
poster stating where and how much tickets cost by walking 
through a dorm. This I saw at least one week before the 
concert If something was in Segal Hall it was placed their a 
few days before the concert. So this was not enough time to 
make plans? 

I would like to commend the person who Anally decided 
to put some information on the Commuter Comer in the 
Agriculture Building. 1 just hope you keep it up. 

In conclusion, 1 feel that nujre could be dcme in ways of 
publicity ( I ) posters should be placed around school at least 
three weeks before an activity (2) All activities should be 
publicized. Also there should be a way to inform people off 
campus that an activity has been cancelled. One problem that 
is getting out of control is this constant battie of commuter vs. 
residents. Is it not time we realize each has problems, and try 
work around them, instead of blaming the other for them. 
Unsuccessfully activities are just unsu(x:essful and not fail- 
ures because d" commuters. The responsibility for trying to 
resolve these diffierences are not just the commuter's but 
everyone concerned.

The Winter sports season at DVC has come to an end. A 
last look of this years highlights presents a very optimistic 
view for next years season. 

A hard working 8 member womens basketball team, 
coached by Peggy Vellner, endured a 3Vi month season 
displaying by tiie end of their season, the desire and deter- 
mination that is the first essential component of winning. 
Joyce Newswanger offered a bright spot scoring 173 points 
this season, thus her total 321 carrier points makes her OVC's 
second all time leading scorer. Another standout player, 
Brenda Wolfe, who aside from this years 177 points was the 
teams leading rebounder with 68. 

Although they only won 2 games, the foundation of this 
.team only allows one direction, and that is up. 

The most marked improvement was in the mens basket- 
ball. Rookie Coach, Les Lombardi led the Aggies from a 6 - 
15 record to this years 11-14. The Aggies were also the 
number one scoring team in the Middle Atlantic Conference. 

Action packed basketball was provided all season. Some 
highlights that adhere to the memory oi many wouk) include 
Ken Mitchells 1 000th carrier point. Bill Walter's rebounds 
that made him one of the top in the MAC, Jim McShea and 
Tom Kehoe in the game against Scranton. the last sh<M against 
Kings, and of course Uie Bill Sunley "Dunk" against 
Fairleigh Dickinson. 

One giant congratulations is in order. Captain Jim 
McShea completed his fourth and final year for the Aggies. 
Jim was one of Del Val's steadest players. One can bet Coach 
Lombardi and the Aggies will miss him next season. 

The last team is a special one. They placed second this 
year in the Middle Atlantic Conference. The finish was 
dramatic with the tide coming down to an overtime match. 
Yes, that awsome Del Val wrestling team coached by Robert 
Marshall finished their 13-2 season placing second to 
Lycoming. The final team scoring was Lycoming 1234. 
Delaware Valley 1 20. The team is young and talented. Next 
year could be the year to go all the way because as we all 
know, number 2 tries harder.

NOTICE: The opinions cxpre»ed in any individual article do not necetsailiy represent the viewpoint of tfie paper or of the school. 


by Rick Lewis 

if one piclcs up any commercial newspaper from the 
past wecic, adds that to the information gained from other 
media such as television and radio, and compounds that 
with the major topic of discussion recently, he will soon 
discover that he has just aiXHit reached dte saturation 
point reprding the nuclear incident at Three Mile Island. 
Some refer to it as a tragedy; others, a disater. Some 
people now feel that this is reason to cancel the develop- 
ment of any new nuclear reactor power plants because of 
a potential for occurrence of similar circumstances. 
POPPYCOCK! Preferably, this should be looked upon as 
an unfortunate, yet invaluable learning experience in 
dealing with the handling of just such occurrences, which 
must be anticipated If nuclear power is to continue to 
develop into a major source of energy for our nation's 

Nuclear energy is basically both efficient and safe. 
When compared to oil and coal, it is economically 
superior. It was estimated in 1977 that, including capital, 
fuel, operation, and maintenance, it cost 3.9^/lcwh to 
produce electrical energy from oil, 2.0^/kwh for energy 
production from coal, and only I.S^/kwh for energy 
production from nuclear type plants. Nuclear energy's 
safety record speaks for itself. There have been few or no 
deaths as a direct result of a nuclear power plant's opera- 
tion. Many have been killed in coat and oil-fired power 
plants, mainly because of a lack of safety precautions 
demanded of a nuclear plant Is this something to look 
into? (Only if we want to drive up the price of fossil fuel 
energy costs.) 

Many people are afraid of the "unseen killing power" 
of the radioactive materials contained within a nuclear 
power plant. The word "meltdown" has become a house- 
hold word in a near record-^tting one day. According to 
NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission) spokesman Dr. 
Harold Denton, a "meltdown" has never really been an 
imminent possibility throuj^out this entire ordeal. Also, 
he explained, a "meltdown" situation is not a sudden 
occurrence, nor does it release anywhere near the amount 
of radiation that does an atomic bomb (nuclear oppon- 
ents' favorite scare tactic comparison). It is true that if a 
"meltdown" were to occur with insufficient evacuation, 
there would be many innocent people exposed to radia- 
tion, but that is the advantage of this incident, in 
allowing officials and en^neers to practice on what 
appears to be a rather stable situation, so that if an 
unforeseen future accident of greater magnitude should 
occur, they would be better prepared to handle it. Also, 
it Is a good opportunity for the NRC to reexamine their 
safety standards set for nuclear power plants and possibly 
upgrade them to reduce the chance of similar accidents 
recurring. Whatever the findings, nuclear power must 
continue to develop. 

As a political note, It was wholly unjustified for 
President Carter and his wife and traveling crew to make a 
pers<mal Visit to Three Mile Island. Not only was he useless 
reprding his nuclear expertise, iMJt also he took valuable 
time away from the engineers working on the problem. 
He could have just as easily made his speech from Wash- 
ington rather than as a spectator.

The DVC Agronomy Club will be presenting a program 
on weed control given by Mr. John Beidman of CIBA- 
GEIGY on April 11, 1979, at 7:00 p.m. In Ag. 114. 




All sbidents should be aware that there have been a 
number of changes ntade In the Employment Program 
requirements. Of benefit to you is that you will now 
receive full academic credit for your work. However, 
no employment credit will be granted unless the correct 
procedure Is followed. 

If you expect to work this summer in a job for which 
you desire Employment Program credit, you must first 
pre-reipster with Mr. Fulcoly or Mrs. Weber in the Office 
of Applied Programs. This may be done at any time, even 
if you do not yet have a job. At Uiis time you will be 
given a set of registration forms and directions on what is 
expected of you. 

The registration forms must be returned no later than 
two weeks after you begin your job, but may be returned 
as soon as you know where you will be working. 

Copies of the new reflations may be obtained from 
Mr. Fulcoly even if you are not pre-registering. These 
regulations also pertain to on-campus employment and to 
all future jobs held part time during the regular academic 


Three local artists — T. CarbonI, Fli^rence G. Hafner 
and Ann Hall, will be featured in a joint art exhibit which 
will open to the public at Delaware Valley College's 
Krauskopf Memorial Library Friday, April 6, 1979, from 
7:(KI p.m. to 9:00 p.m. 

T. Carboni is a member of the Arts Alliance of Bucks 
County, Doylestown Art League and Bucks-Mont Art 

Florence Hafner, Warrington artist, exhibits widely in 
the Bucks-Mont area. She received first place for water 
colors at Montgomery Mall in 1977 and at Autumn Antics, 
Willow Grove in 1978. In addition to water colors, Mrs. 
Hafner works in oil, acrylic and pen and ink. 

Ann . Hall finds Bucks County, where she has long 
resided, to be the main sources of inspiration for her 
wattrcolors and drawings. The subject of her work 
reflects organic forms and patterns, as well as landscapes. 
Ann is a member of the Bucks-Mont League, the Doyles- 
town Art League, and the Bucks County Arts Alliance. 

The current exhibit which runs through April 25, 
1979 will feature a variety of art forms. 



ARMED FORCES - Elvis Costcllo and The Attractions 
Elvis Costello and The Attractions continue to exhibit 
a second album ARMED FORCES. Costello's swooning 
monotone voice prevails throu^out both sides of the 
album, rarely Interrupted by strictly Instrumental sections. 
The instrumenution is very strong throughout, but it still 
seems to remain in the background of Costello's vocals. 
The album consists of twelve short, fast-paced cuts. It's a 
good album if you really sit back and absorb the whole 
package without occupying your mind with anything else. 
Elvis Costello is still one of the best new songwriters. 
The strange ideas and lyrics expressed in much of his 
material is a change of pace from most of the ordinary 
rock mu^c now played - this is what makes Costello so 
unique. The music itself is very disoriented, often sound- 
ing like each member of the band is just playing what he 
feels like playing, but this, again is part of their style. If 
you buy their new album soon, you will receive a live 
single of Elvis and the band recorded from a concert at 
Hollywood Hi^. It includes the hits "Alison" and a p-eat 
version of "Watching the Detectives" from their first 
album and their new hit "Accidents Will Happen" from 
their new album ARMED FORCES. This live version of 
Elvis and The Attractions is worth the price of the album. 


A Backgammon tournament Is in the making!! You

the start of next semester. 


Anyone passing by the Hort Woods behind Ag 
Building on Saturday, March 31st, would have seen a few 
people ag^essively atucking the leaves, undergrowth, 
and debris. These were not paid workers, but the nucleus 
of the Campus Beautification Committee. We are students 
who are tired of having the campus looking so run-down. 
A lot of people express the desire to see the campus look 
better. Finally, some of us are starting to do something 
about it. 

The Committee is headed by Glenn Sharko and 
Rosalyn VanArsdalen, members of the OH Qub and 
Student Government. Mr. Happ, Mr. Benner and Dr. 
Mertz are the faculty members working along with the 
Committee. However, it doesi't stop there. We are looking 
for you, the students, to get involved and do something 
about your campus. We live here eight months a year. It's 
our home - so why not treat it as such. 


Students of Delaware Valley College, 

We recently received a letter from the Cancer Society 
concerning the donation sent them in memory of our 
daughter. Sue. 

Your kind and generous expres^on of sympathy w^ 
greatly appreciated. We know you all did a marvelous job 
at the Volley Ball Marathon last November and we wish 
to thank you very much. 

The very best in life to all of you. 


Mr. and Mrs. Albert Harvey 

Editor's note: 

This letter was received by the Collegian from the 
parents of Susan Harvey, Class of 1979. Susan was a 
chemistry major and passed away earlier this year. 


by "Fredster" • Music Director, WAPO 

If you like good old-fashioned rock and roll, you will 
love tiie latest album from a little-known band called 
Brownsville. They play rock and roll like it was meant to 
be played - very loud and very fast. Unlike many of the 
newer rock groups with their finely polished, synthesized 
sound, Brownsville plays it straight forward and hard. 
Brownsville continues to carry on the neverending fine 
tradition of rock and roll. Warning: Not recommended for 
disco- types. 

Other albums which came out in 1 978 and continue to 
imoress me are The Cars fantastic debut album. It sounds 
new every time you listen to it. Heart's Dog and Butterfly 
continues to raise the prestige of that great female* 
dominated band. Minstral Wind is one of the best cuts 
from the album. Heart is without a doubt the best rock 
band in a long time, right behind Pink Floyd and the 
immortal Led Zeppelin on my Wsi. And Then There Were 
Three from Genesis is a really fine album from that three- 
man band. Aerosmith's Bootleg is strictly recommended 
for true Aerosmith fans. It contains excellent live versions 
of many of their tunes, most notably Dream On and Lord 
of the Thighs. Ambrosia's latest Life Beyond LA, is 
excellent as is the intense new album from Journey 
called Infinity. Briefcase Full of Blues from the Blues 
Brothers, somewhat of a novelty item, continues to sell, 
the music isn't that bad. The Stone's Some Girls, Double 
Vision from Foreigner, and Pieces of Eight from Styx are 
all better than average albums. The Greatful Dead's new 
one. Shakedown Street, is also of good quality. The best 
new single from an album is Take Me to the River by The 
Talking Heads from their latest album titled More Songs 
about Buildings and Food. 

New releases from Led Zeppelin, The Eagles and a 
two-record set from Fleetwood Mac are expected to be 
released in the near future.

The Delaware Valley College Residence Life Staff 
would like to bring to the students' attention the pro- 
grams that are put on by the Residence Life Staff. Each 
Resident Assisunt is required to put on two programs per 
semester. Each program must be approved by the Execu- 
tive Committee. Once approved, the programs will appear 
on a calendar outside the Residence Life Office. 

I would like to urge the students to attend the 
programs put on by their RA. Not all the programs 
are open to the entire student body because of the

That feeling of spring in the air is enough to make 
any able-bodied person yearn to get outside and absorb 
the sensations of this time of year. To appease this 
primeval urge, Pennypack Watershed Association has 
scheduled a Spring Fever Hike for Saturday, April 7, from 
2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Led by the Association's 
naturalist, this pr(^ram will focus on the signs of spring 
so rapidly appearing on the natural landscape. Wild- 
flowers, returning wildlife, early tree blossoms, spring 
songs and animal signs are some of the things to be 
covered on this hike. Come on out to stretch your 
legs and fill your lungs with fresh, spring air. 

The Association requests a donation of 50^ for adults 
and 25^ for children. For more information about 
programs at the Environmental Management Center,

Two Delaware Valley College seniors received Certifi- 
cates of Outsunding Achievement in Biology at the 
Northeastern Regional Conference of the American Insti- 
tute of Biological Sciences held in Albany, New York. 
The certificates were presented by the National A.I.B.S. 
for research papers that the students presented. 

The students are: 

lessie Daubert, a senior Agronomy major. She studied 
the "Effectiveness of Tree Wound Paint on Bacterial 
Infections of Plants". Miss Daubert's research included 
the effects of tree wound paint on bacteria in laboratory 
situations as well as on various types of plant material 
grown under greenhouse conditions. Her advisors for this 
research included Dr. Barbara Muse and Dr. lames Miller. 
She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Bruce of Star 
Route #2, Doylestown, Pa. 

Bruce Micales is a senior Biology major. He studied 
the "Effects of Various Secondary Amines on Bacterio- 
static Properties of an Aniline-Derived Dye". Mr. Micales 
synthesized new compounds and tested them to see if 
they would kill harmful bacteria. Faculty advisors for this 
research project included Dr. Richard Lazarus and Dr. 
James Miller. Bruce is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harbble 
Micales of 114 Timothy Place, Somerville, N.). 


There will be a meeting of all graduating seniors on 
Tuesday, April 24, 1979, at 3:00 p.m. in the James Work 
Gymnasium. Attendance is mandatory. 

During this meeting graduation packets will be dis- 
tributed and graduation procedures will be discussed. 
The Director of Alumni Affairs will make a brief pre- 
sentation, and time will also be allotted to take care of 
last minute details for the senior trips. 

Again, all graduating seniors are expected to attend 
this meeting. 


"A-Day" is approaching quickly, and with it comes 
showing of sheep, swine, and of course flowers. The

Well, Spring is upon us, and that means it's time for 
Softball. The team to watch this year is the WAPO spon- 
sored team, Dazed and Confused. General Manager Steve 
Saphos should be credited with putting such exceptional 
talent together in such a short time. Dave Geyer, team 
manager, who recently conducted the team's fitness 
workout in Florida was quoted as saying, "In alt my years 
of coaching, i have never seen such a group of people in 
better condition." 

As for scouting the team, Fredster, the golden glove 
shortstop is the heart of the team's defense. Double T, 
Dave Hanisco, Mr. "Bill", Steve Parrish, Erotic |oe, Crazy 
Eddie and Electric Lady all combine together to give 
WAPO's Dazed and Confused team a hard-hitting power 
lineup. On the pitching staff is hustler "OWLDO", a two- 
time-twenty game loser, giving the team confidence in his 
determined effort for a better year. In case "OWLDO" 
fails in the bullpen, Dazed and Confused has M.j. Moore 
and Barb as relief pitchers, giving the team more than 
sufficient backup. 

All in all, WAPO's Dazed and Confused team seems to 
be a definite contender. 

NOTE: All Dazed and Confused games can be heard 
on a delayed broadcast on WAPO 640 AM. 

Dazed and Confused 


The third annual "Superstar Competition" will be held 
on April 21 and 22. The events for this year include Cross 
Country Relay, Sack Race, two Raft Races, Running 
Broad Jump, Obstacle Course, Foul Shooting Contest, and 
Frisbee Throw. 

There are 30 teams competing this year for a first 
prize of $10 per person on the team. 

Surting time is 1:30 Saturday and 1:00 Sunday, so 
come out and watch your friends compete in these j^uel- 
ing, hilarious events. 


LETTERS (com.) 

To the Editor: 

Your recent editorial lauding nuclear power as a 
necessary and safe contribution to our nation's energy 
needs (despite the Three Mile Island disaster) reads, 
unfortunately, like so much sooth-saying propagated by 
the nuclear energy industry. The nuclear energy debate 
has been, and still is, long and inconclusive, largely 
because even the "experts", including those employed by 
the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, do not agree on the 
efficiency and safety of nuclear power. If, however, we 
strip the arguments, pro and con, of all of their emotional 
trappings, there remain, in my view, three basic unresolved 

1. It is true that nuclear power plants are designed with 
multi-level safety systems. (It is a pointed commentary 
on the state of the nuclear art that there are, in fact, 
substantial changes in the design of every nuclear 
power plant incorporated during its construction be- 
cause no "final" solution to all of the safety problems 
has yet been devised.) Three Mile Island has, however, 
made it abundantly clear that all of that sophisticated 
equipment cannot necessarily be relied upon to work 
the way it is supposed to work as operated by the 
plant personnel. What is even more astounding is the 
magnitude of safety problems of which we may yet be 
totally unaware. Nobody had anticipated a hydrogen 
accumulation in the reactor core. We came very close 
to a hydrogen gas explosion accompanied by a lethal 
shower of the reactor's core contents at Middletown. 

2. We have no wholly satisfactory solution to the prob- 
lem of disposing of nuclear wastes. Some of the fission 
products derived from reactors remain radioactive for 
periods of time well exceeding the lifespan of any 
civilization this planet has ever supported. Hence, even 
if we can engineer a way to contain these materials as 
long as we can monitor them, we cannot guarantee 
their safety if we, as a civilization, should no longer be 
available to maintain their containment. On top of 
that, we cannot engineer containment of them that 
can be absolutely guaranteed to protect them from 
natural forces that could, in the future, expose them. 

3. When all is said and done, the proven world reserves of 
uranium, upon which the current nuclear generators 
are wholly dependent, have a projected availability 
that will endure no longer than the world's proven 
reserves of oil. In other words, at best, nuclear fission 
will last us only about as long as oil will, into the early 
decades of the next century. Why put so much time, 
effort, and capital into a temporary solution to a 
long-term problem? It is high time that we turn our 
technology toward developing those potential energy 
resources - solar, geothermal, and wind power among 
them - that have demonstrably greater staying power. 

The "Energy Crisis", with all of its ramifications, 
presents our civilization with the largest and most com- 
plex challenge it has ever faced. It shall be an interesting 
example of living history to see how we handle it. It will 
be a test of our mettle. And that mettle will only prove 
to have durability if we can rise above the here-and-now 
and develop solutions that will carry us beyond the near 
horizon of the Twenty-first Century. 


John C. Mertz 

To the Editor: 

I recently picked up a copy of the Collegian, April 6, 
1979. I found my emotions aroused when reading "From 
the Editor's Desk", an article concerning nuclear energy. 
This article will consider some ideas presented in the 
aforementioned article. 

First, the statement that "nuclear energy is both effi- 
cient and safe." Today, nuclear power is more efficient 
than our popular fossil fuels, but is it safer? Basically, 
fossil fuels pollute by adding particles to the atmosphere 
and nuclear power pollutes by increasing temperatures of 
the surrounding cnvironmeni. This is under normal oper- 
ating conditions. In event of a disaster to a system, fossil 
fuels would burn or explode and spill liquid fuel and com- 
busted particles into the surrounding environment. On the 
other side of the coin, even a minor disaster of a nuclear 
system can result in the emission of radioactive particles. 
Interesting; radioactive particles, what are the long-term 
effects of radiation exposure? Agreed, there may be no 
short-term effects unless a massive dosage of radiation is 
encountered (a meltdown, possibly). But the long-term 
effects of prolonged exposure to even low levels of 
radiation? Who knows. The government will not say that 
there are no long-term effects. Almost everyone does 
agree that a disaster of greater magnitude would certainly 
be harmful to human life. The evacuation plans may be 
seen as an acceptance to this fact. Again, is nuclear power 

One would agree with the statement that the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission should reexamine safety stand- 
ards; but agree with the statement ". . . nuclear power 
must continue to develop"? 

Nuclear power is only a temporary solution to the 
energy problem. Man must reevaluate where he is heading 
in the future. Sure, nuclear power is more efficient than 
conventional fossil fuels and, depending on future findings 
(and who is arguing the point) nuclear power may even be 
safer. But fossil fuels and the fuels needed to run a reactor 
are all resources which must re removed from the earth 
and used. They are limited resources! What are the future 
energy goals? Are scientists going to find a clean, safe, 
and efficient energy source which is unlimited in nature? 
Nuclear power does not meet this goal; therefore, contin- 
ued development of fission reactors should be bypassed 
in favor of development of alternate energy forms. Solar 
energy, wind energy and energy from tide changes should 
be developed. These forms of energy are already clean, 
safe, and from an unlimited source. Efficiency is all that 
remains. The choice is yours.

To the Editor: 

One of the most laughable ideas recently proposed is 
the "21" Residence Halls. At present, according to page 
41 of the Student Handbook "a person is guilty of a 
summary offense if he, being less than 21 years of age, 
attempts to purchase, purchases, consumes, possesses or 
transports any alcohol, liquor or malt or brewed bever- 
ages" and goes on "In accordance with the above, posses- 
sion or consumption of alcoholic or malt beverages on the 
property of the College, will result in disciplinary action. 
The same rule will apply to every student regardless of 
age." However, the above-mentioned regulation is not 
obeyed by the student body and certainly /lot enforced 
by Security. 

Does the Administration believe that by setting up 
"21" Residence Halls, with a modified alcohol policy, 
that consumption of alcohol by students will be restricted 
by these "legal" halls? If they do, they are sorely mis- 
taken and should take a walk and close look through any 
residence hall on a Saturday night. They would see several 
loud and drunken parties going on. Also, that those who 
object to these goings-on have left for somewhere else, or 
are afraid to call Security because of possible reprisals 
by the partyers. 

There is no easy solution to the problem of consump- 
tion of alcohol on campus. However, most to be pitied are 
the janitorial staff who have to cleap up the broken 
bottles, spilled beer, and mess in the bathrooms after one 
of these parties, since the participants do not have enough 
common courtesy to clean up the mess they made.

Death and dying is often an interesting subject among 
people who like to theorize and even fantasize, it is not 
until we have an experience with death, be it a close 
friend or a relative or a close brush with it ourselves, that 
our age-old fears come back to us, penetrating our surface 
ideologies. Herman Feifel says in his book New Meanings 
of death, ". . . the threat of death, which does nothing 
but diminish and annihilate, is especially for a college 
student, a dramatically devastating trauma. It is the 
essence of the wrong event at the wrong time ... We 
mourn the death of a young gifted person, a beautiful 
person, more than the death of an old person, a wicked 
person, or even an ordinary person. We mourn the death 
of a college student -. . . bright promise unfulfilled ■ 
more than any other." This is because we really don't 
understand death. 

Many of us refuse to accept death as a rational 
possibility for our near future. Car accidents, fires, and 
illnesses should be enough to open our eyes. But then 
what? You say that since death is included with the 
inevitable there is nothing we can do about it? This may 
be. We can't do anything to prevent our bodies from 
undergoing physical death. We can prolong life but we 
can't prevent death altogether. So the question arises — 
how will I face death when it comes knocking on my 
door? Can I prepare myself for it? The best you can do 
to begin preparing yourself for this very important stage 
in your future is to study the different theories about it. 
See which theories have held up through the centuries. I 
am also open for any private discussions on the matter. 
I happen to have a very close friend who died for me. I 
have listed some reading materials that may be of interest 
to you.

An incredible place to visit in the warm weeks ahead is 
a tiny island about eight miles off the coast of Cape Cod 
called Martha's Vineyard. The island is about 22 miles 
long and attracts the type of people who enjoy being 
surrounded by clear blue ocean, a rolling topography and 
breathtaking cliffs. The best way to get to the island is to 
take route 95 to Providence, R.I., where you go east on 
180 until you arrive in Woodshole, Mass. In Woodshole 
you take a 4S-minute ferry ride to the island. 

Once on the island you can get around by bringing 
your car over on the ferry or by renting a bike, a moped, 
or a car. You should go to Oaks Bluff which is a small 
town once inhabited by pirates and now inhabited by 
people akin to the bar scene. You should then go to 
Edgartown which is the next town up island. Edgartown 
is an extremely classy town with quite a collection of 
yachts, fine restaurants, and bars. Your next place of 
interest to see should be Chilnrlark with its famous art 
museum and antique movie theatre. Your next stop 
should be Manemshe which is the classic fishing village 
you know so well from paintings. The ultimate place to 
visit is the furthest top of the island called GayHead. It is 
an old Indian village overlooking the sea and surr6unded 
by huge cliffs. Once in GayHead you should find Zachs 
Beach which is a beautiful nudist's paradise. 

Incidentally, about % mile from Edgartown is the 
famous Chappaquidick Island where Ted Kennedy drove 
off the bridge with his lady friend. You can take a ferry 
from Edgartown to see the bridge. As far as accommoda- 
tions go, there are a couple of hotels but mostly guest 
houses where you can stay at prices ranging from $6.00 
per night to $50.00 per night. There is also a youth hostel 
costing $3.50 per night. For those of you who are 
interested, Martha's Vineyard is where the movie Jaws 
was filmed. Another good point about the island is that 
females far outnumber males by a ratio of 3:1. 

If solitude on a beautiful island surrounded by luscious 
beaches is what you want, I suggest you visit the island 
before June. After June there will be an abundance of 
tourists. I almost forgot to mention that you can camp 
out on the island in a place called Cranberry Aures. 

I'm going to visit the Vineyard next week and maybe 
I'll see some of you there. 


An unsuspecting student had just sat down at his 
desk on Thursday, April 5th. An afternoon of both 
relaxation and study was his objective on this crisp spring 
day. This was to be followed by housing registration in 
the early evening. 

Suddenly, by chance, he received a message from a 
friend. Contrary to the time given in the current issue of 
This Week On Campus, registration was apparently begin- 
ning some six hours prior to schedule! Of course, the 
student, gripped with fear over being stuck in the same 
dorm for another year, dropped all work and made tracks 
for Mandell. 

Upon arriving, he found an encampment of several 
dozen classmates already in the acts of sleeping, playing 
cards, cursing, and wondering what in God's name was 
going on. The student signed his name to a so-called 
"order list", which, rumor had it, designated the order 
in which candidates for housing would be called forth to 
select their rooms. Rumor also had it that spot checks 
would be held all afternoon to make certain that no one 
committed the atrocity of going to class after signing his 
name. So the lengthy vigil began. 

With all hopes of catching up on study swept away, 
the day dragged on. Rumors concerning changes in 
procedure brought on worried looks, helped initiate 
ulcers, and helped shorten tempers as the hands of the 
clock slowly wandered on. The amount of concrete 
information provided to waiting students throughout the 
afternoon would have made the Soviet news agency 

Finally, housing registration began, at which time the 
cranky students stampeded in a calm, orderly manner 
toward the waiting line. The list which had received 
signatures all afternoon mysteriously vanished as the 
patient (i.e.*, those who had stood directly before the 
doors for an eternity) and the fittest (i.e., 6'4", 200 lbs.) 
entered the lecture hall first. After discovering that the 
room he had waited nearly seven hours for had been 
taken, the student settled for one of the remaining spots 
on campus. It just happened to be next to the phone, 
next door to a guy with four-foot Advents hooked to his 
receiver, and across the hall from the world's longest 
running party. The student emerged from Mandell much 
disgusted at having spent the afternoon twiddling his 
thumbs and reading the key to last month's Chem II exam 
seventeen times. There must be some way to run this 
procedure more quickly, he thought to himself. Perhaps a 
demolition derby, or a foot race from Route 202 to 
Mandell. At any rate, one could always hope for tjetter 
luck next year.

A dollar a' gallon! Rationing! Fuel shoruges! How 
true is all this talk about the energy crisis? It is the 
opinion of the Commuter Co/ner that shortages are a real 
possibility, even though they don't exist right now. The 
U.S. is tMjrning the majority of the world's oil, and a lot 
will be used needlessly. After you see a picture of a super- 
highway in Los Angeles or New York, you can easily see 
why the rest of the world is angry. Millions of cars drive 
needlessly every day, people live in overheated houses and 
use luxury items that they can live without. Every day 
that this goes on, we use billions of gallons of fuel that 
can never be replaced. If we continue at this rate, the 
shortage will be real. 

Before this happens we should, and must, put into 
effect the ideas that have been proposed to conserve 
energy. This involves using car pools, and public trans- 
portation, such as busses and trains. If we can save a 
million gallons a day, that's a million gallons that can be 
put toward more efficient use. We can ship food to the 
needy at less cost, or develop cheaper public housing and 
public transportation. 

The worst that could happen In a real energy crisis is 
rationing. It's a very unpopular idea but it is a real 
possibility. We can avoid this by using less oil. Walk or 
bike to a place if it's close enough, and consolidate trips 
into once or twice a week. This will save oil as well as 
simplify things for all involved. By putting less cars on the 
road there will be less traffic and faster trips from one 
place to another. 

Dollar a gallon gas? The commuter's plague! This 
country is so used to fifty-cent gas that the dollar sounds 
horrible. Let's not forget that in European countries the 
price is upwards of two dollars a gallon. We are still lucky. 
This country has the lowest average price of gas. If we 
look at an unpopular side of the coin, the Arabs, for 
years, were living in poverty and getting pennies a barrel 
(55 gallons) for oil. Now, finally, they are enjoying 
luxury. Don't we feel the same? In other words, when we 
find a profitable trade, don't we try to get more and more 
profit from it? 

The one idea to keep in mind is, "Let's save gas 
BEFORE it's depleted." In this way, by giving up a few 
luxuries, we can save enough energy to keep ourselves in 
low-cost fuel for many more years.

A-DAY 1984 

by Tom Umrath 

Another A-Day, I thought, as I returned to DVC for 
the celebrated annual spring ritual As I pulled into the 
south entrance, I could not get over how much the place 
had changed. Before I had a chance to absorb the scene in 
front of me, I was engulfed by the usual enormous crowd. 
Essentially, they were the same type of people who had 
been present at all former A-Days, except for the in- 
creased number of smiling realtors in the group. But they 
could only be expected. Some of the people in this crowd 
still owned real farms, and they were prime targets for the 
subdividers. I marched to the lawn beside the gym and 
began to marvel at some of the imaginative displays con- 
structed by the students. 

Good old A.I.B.S. was running a government-licensed 
clone booth this year, at which one could deposit his cat 
or dog and pick up a rapidly duplicating cell one hour 
later. This service also included a 485-page volume titled 
Qunc Jokes of the Seventies to amuse the customer. 
There I saw the school's newest major, pre-aquaculture, 
in the process of displaying their newly acquired under- 
water harvesters in Lake Sitarski. Their efforts were foiled, 
however, when a case of empty Michelobs was sucked 
into the machine. 

Near Route 202, the Climate Control Qub was in the 
process of inflicting a violent hailstorm on the security 
office, much to the Joy of all students present. Some 
things never change, 1 thought. The Agriculture Depart- 
ment also had a most intercstmg display - the remote- 
controlled farmer. A marvel of modern technology, they 
called it. This machine could plow, seed, and harvest 
almost any crop on any terrain while the human farmer 
sat back and worried about his taxes. As an option, one 
could even purchase a denim-style paint job for the rustic 

After viewing all of the exhibits, I took a place on a 
mini-bus and settled back for a campus tour. The first 
stop was an ancient stone and wood barn near the 
Doylestown monorail track. Cameras clicked like a 
regiment of soldiers fixmg their bayonets as this relic of 
the past was gazed at in awe. We then passed under the 
track and onto a wide blacktop where fields once grew. 
Before us loomed a shining silver dome surrounded by a 
cluster of humming trucks. This was Farm 5, which had 
replaced DVC's archaeic crop fields and animal barns 
three years earlier. Its revolutionary hybrids allowed the 
college to produce more than ten times the food put out 
in earlier years, consequently reducing the cost of a year's 
tuition to $17,500. 

The best of the tour was yet to come, when we were 
allowed to photograph an acre of trees which had been 
maintained by the college as the John Standing Memorial 
Forest. The lour would have been perfect had it not been 
for the constant reminiscing of two alumni in the front 
of the bus. Their talk of tractors, cutting hay, fishing, and 
manual labor was clearly nauseating to the other people 
in the bus. Sentimental fools after all, the future is 
progress, isn't it?

In a meet that was even closer than the score indicated, 
the Delaware Valley College Track Team defeated MAC 
opponents Albright and Susquehanna last Thursday at 
D.V.C The final scores were Delaware Valley College 
71.5, Albright College 59.0 and Susquehanna University 
50.5. Double winners for Delaware Valley College in- 
cluded Steve Lilly in the 100- and 200-meter sprints and 
Mark Tankersley the 110 high hurdles and 400 inter- 
mediate hurdles. Marl's 56.2 in the intermediate hurdles 
was a new school record. 

Other first place winners for D.V.C. were James 
Murphy in the 1500 meters, Mike Danis in the high jump, 
and Warren Robertson in the javelin. The high jump and 
javelin points iced the victory for Delaware Valley 
College and raised their record to 4-1. The final regular 
season track meet of the season will be Wednesday 
(April 25) against Haverford and Ursinus at Ursinus 
College. The MAC Track Meet is scheduled for Friday and 
Saturday, May 5 and 6. 


The Delaware Valley College Baseball team hit a poor 
offensive week and as a result lost two doublehcaders. 
Last Wednesday the "Aggies" traveled to Upsala and 
dropped two games, 8-0 and 5-0. The drought of Aggie 
hits continued on Saturday when Wilkes defeated D.V.C. 
4-0, 2-1 at Wilkes. According to Coach Frank Wolfgang, 
the "Aggie" offense is averaging three hits a game and the 
other teams just aren't making any mistakes. 

The Baseball team will have plenty of opportunities 
to get back on their winning track with a home game with 
Muhlenberg on Wednesday, a doubleheader at Scranton 
on Thursday and a doubleheader at Elizabethtown on 
Friday. The overall record for the "Aggies" going into this 
week is 11-9. 


NOTICE to anyone who would be interested in working 
on next year's Yearbook, including the staff from this 

There will be a meeting May 7th at 7:30 p.m. at

put a httle work into photography, copy, captions, 
layouts, business and artwork. No experience is necessary. 
Just bring yourself!

A clone is a group of cultivated plants which have been 
propagated vegetatively from a single original individual 
and are genetically uniform. 

Although the word "cloning" brings to mind visions of 
mad scientists, test tubes, and flashes of bubbling chem- 
icals, it is actually far more down-to-earth. When you 
root a cutting, you're making a clone. 

However, a newer method of cloning does involve test 
tubes and chemicals (but no mad scientist). It is known as 
tissue culture, which is the asexual propagation (regenera- 
tion) of plants from small pieces of plant tissue, such as 
pieces of leaf particles, stems, and apical meristems. Two 
requirements for successful tissue culture are aseptic 
conditions and a culture medium containing chemicals 
necessary for growth of the species. 

Tissue culture is done on a commercial basis with 
orchids and certain other house plants. Theoretically, any 
plant can be tisaie cultured, but more work is needed to 
determine the correct media. 

The advantages of tissue culture include: 

1. Production of a large number of plants from a 
small amount of plant tissue. 

2. Production of disease-free and unblemished 

3. Production of genetically uniform plants. 

4. Faster propagation of rare, slow, or difficult to 
propagate species. 

Take a good look at your favorite house plant; it's 
probably a clone. 

Who is this nun? Come over to "The Other Side" and 
find out. RNG, Saturday April 28. 1979, 9 p.m. 1 a.m.

The Collegian wishes to congratulate Dr. Lazarus, Jim 
Maloney, and the entire A-Day Committee for a job well 
done. Although Saturday was rather blustery, Sunday 
turned out to be an excellent day which drew near-record 
crowds to the freshly decorated campus. A-Day this year 
was a memorable experience for all who attended. 


Those students who are interested in renewing their 
financial aid eligibility should contact the Student Finan-

Jersey residents file a N.J. Financial Aid Form) and 
brought in a copy of the 1978 Income Tax Statement of 
your parents, it is recommended that you do so immedi- 
ately. The deadline for filing for the Pennsylvania Higher 
Education AssisUnce Grant (Pa. residents only) was

Dear Editor, 

In regard to the March 9 letter of Kyle Kemp, the 
Chairman of the House of Social Activities, I have a few 
important comments. 

Just one time I'd appreciate it if someone on this 
campus would get serious and attempt to malce an intelli- 
gent statement I, as a so-called "ignorer" (whatever that 
means) have just finished reading a copy of the March 9 
Collegian. (I guess in this case we could call it the 
ignoree.) I, as a lowly, shameful, non-resident just can't 
understand why there is such a disagreement about 
whether or not commuters get the most out of student 

If I may, I'd like to analyze this situation. I am a 
junior commuting student. I travel fifty-five miles a day 
and try my best to Ulce advantage of the social activities 
which Del Val offers. 

Let's see - one of the activities I had the pleasure of 
taking part in was the musical entertainment in the mag- 
nificent commuter complex, Segal Hall. As I sat in that 
luxurious building eating my lunch, I experienced, live 
and in person, the sounds of a Polish band playing some 
of your and my favorite polkas. Seriously now, we 
"ignorers" don't deserve such expensive entertainment. 

This band, however, could not surpass the superb 
evening entertainment, such as dances and discos. The 
enthusiasm at these events is beyond belief. I have, on 
occasion, been lucky enough to purchase a ticlcet to a 
couple of these social extravaganzas. Tickets are just so 
hard to come by. I'm shocked students haven't Uken to 

The last dance I attended had unbelievable lighting 
(none) and the sound system was, how should I put it, 

Now, rtgarding my commuter calendar. I believe a 
calendar of events is usually posted in Segal Hall. Yes, I 
think one struck my eye the other day but, I might be 
wrong, since it was so crowded over by the "signs adver- 
tising upcoming events", not to mention the stacks and 
stacks of accumulating student government minutes and 
Collegians which were blocking my view. 

It only took me a few seconds to read the calendar but 
I, not being your regular, disgustingly ungrateful com- 
muter, still took the time to walk over to my mailbox 
(you know, we each do have one) knowing full well it 
contained only a calendar. I figured, it's the least I could 
do to show my gratitude and concern. 

Finally, since I've read your moving, spiritually- 
uplifting letter, Mr. Kemp, I've decided, once and for alt, 
to abandon my former attitudes. I have become a con- 
scientious commuter. In fact, every chance I get I take 
advantage of an invigorating walk from Segal Hall to the 
library and, when that bores me, I see how many times I 
can walk from the parking lot to Mandell and back 
without getting winded. Since I realize that improvements 
to the parking situation are (and have been for as long as I 
can remember) in the offing and that (to use your quote, 
if I as a commuter, may) "until the long process of insti- 
tuting such a change can be approved and initiated, the 
situation will, unfortunately, have to remain the way it 
it". But, until these situations do change, I will count my 
blessings — the exercise will do me good. (How's that for 
not letting a situation work to my detriment?) 

In\fonclusion, I would like to say that I have dis- 
cussed your letter with some of my fellow commuters. In 
retrospect, we have all decided to make the first step 
toward reforming our apathetic ways. We are all going to 
spend an entire Friday night ON CAMPUS, counting 
empty dormitory bunks. That will keep us busy for some 
time, won't it?

By the year 3000 there will be no fuel left to burn, 
theoretically. So how will we get around? The easiest way 
will be to walk. Our legs are our most functional transpor- 
Ution. They are easily mainuined, quick, and in some 
cases nice to look at 

Bicycles are also to be looked into. Not only are they 
a cheap source of locomotion and also easy to maintain, 
but a great way to sUy in shape and get out to check out 

A major source of transportation will have to be 
horses. Horses are strong, loyal, and are easily trained. 
They need no trail, no grease, no sharing, and no tires. 
The thing a horse does require is food. This shmld be no 
trouble, since no one's grass will be mowed and grazing 
land will be plentiful. 

As a final note we have to look at the re^onslbility of 
mutations. Through radiation we could muute birds and 
animals to grow many times their normal size, lust think 
about how nice it would be to ride a crow On second 
thought, a crow would probably eat its rider, so let's 
think about a canary. Wc could be enteruined free of 
charge, sweet soft music, just lay back and relax. Granted, 
all ground dwelling people would have to be issued 
umbrellas as a precaution against lovirf lying "bombers". 

For running on the ground, we could grow giant 
animals. Just think about how fast a chipmunk can run. 
Now imagine that same chipmunk, only 10 feet ull. 
Just think of the speed (of the chipmunk, of course); 
imagine running the Baha 1000 on this guy - great family 

The last resort is mutating ourselves to grow wings. 
The Commuter Corner has bugs planted throughout CIA 
headquarters, and we found that a new strain of flying 
people is being researched. (Remember Three Mile 
Island?) We strongly urge you to write your Congressman 
telling him you strongly disagree with mutating people 
with radiation, but you do support Bill 646, wing trans- 
plant research. 

Have a great vacation,

The Collegian visited Dr. Charles Weber, a known 
activist in the train movement. I asked the standard 
question - how he became interested in trains. His reply 
was that he always had the interest in trains - even before 
he was born. His father had purchased two train sets one 
month before Dr. Weber was born, although his father had 
no interest In them. Dr. Weber had those sets until he was 
12 years of age, at which time he purchased more sets 
with money he earned. 

Dr. Weber's collection consists primarily of the Lionel 
0-gauge trains. These are two times the size of the HO 
type. At the time these were the most popular and with 
what he started. 

In the late 1950's and early 1960's, while he was in 
college, Dr. Weber began building O-gauge scale models. 
After college he lost interest in scale building and became 
interested in just collecting toys - old toy trains. The toy 
trains are only resemblenccs of real trains. Scale models 
are actual models of real trains scaled down to %' to 1 '. 
Scale models are miniatures of the real thing. Dr. Weber's 
collection and interest is primarily in toys older than 
World War II. 

I asked if his interest included trolleys. Dr. Weber's 
reply was, "Yes." He doesn't, however, have any trolleys. 
Lionel made trolleys between 1900 and 1917 and 
another model in 1 957. Dr. Weber said it is difficult to get 
these. I asked if there was a national interest in train 
collecting. Dr. Weber replied that there was. There are 
three major collectors' organizations. The T.C.A. (Train 
Collectors Association) has 12,000 members, of which 
Dr. Weber is a member. Dr. Weber was president of the 
local chapter for three years and is still a member of the 
board. The T.C.A. museum is in Strasburg, Pa., where 
Dr. Weber put together the train layout. There is also the 
L.C.C. of A. (Lionel Collectors Club of America) of which 
Dr. Weber is also a member. The T.T.O.S. (Toy Train 
Operators Society) is an organization for toy train 

Since Dr. Weber has 6-8 sets which includes 650 cars 
and 1 25-1 50 engines, I asked if there was money involved. 
He replied that a great deal of money can be invested in 
trains - for which some people do. He himself does not 
have any rare expensive pieces, but does have a rather 
large collection and is worth money. His are on display at 
his home and in Strasburg, Pa., at the T.C.A. museum. 
Dr. Weber is always interested in purchasing pre-World 
War it and post-World War II trains. 

Any students with any interest in trains are encouraged 
to see Dr. Weber and to join the Railroad Club here on

Of all the cities In the world I've been to I have found 
Amsterdam, Holland, the nicest. For a large city located 
in central Europe it is unique for having an extremely 
relaxing feeling. The city is essentially situated on water 
resulting in numerous canals throughout the city. The 
people of Holland are some of the most beautiful people 
I've ever had the pleasure to encounter. It seems that due 
to the rigidness enforced on the Dutch people by the 
Nazis in World War II, the people have made a complete 
360° turn in their culture. They've legalized pornography, 
prostitution, and hashish smoking in cerUin government- 
regulated clubs. The prostitutes are licensed and inspected 
for V.D. by the Dutch government. 

There is an extremely youthful air about Holland 
which gives way to a unity among the Dutch people both 
young and old. Language is no problem, because they all 
speak English. Don't forget to check out the Heineken 

Beer Brewery for all the free samples of Heineken you can 
handle at 1 1 :00 a.m. 

The food in Amsterdam is excellent, but expensive. 
You can, however, eat in special student restaurants 
relatively cheaply.' 

Other points of interest are Amsterdam's incredible 
museums, greenhouses on house boats, partying clubs 
with co-ed saunas, and, of course, the people. You also 
want to check out the tulips in the summer throughout 
Holland's landscape which is truly a magnificent scene. 

As far as accommodations go, you can stay in youth 
hostels, inexpensive youth hotels, or camp out in Hol- 
land's VondenI Park. Airfare to Amsterdam is anywhere 
from $200 to $300 round trip from New York. Amster- 
dam is the kind of city that is best described by just going 
and seeing it for yourself. 


NEW YORK, April 18 - "Unethical" cults "have infil- 
trated almost every campus in the country" to such an 
extent that if "your child is in college or high school, the 
chances are good that sometime this year, he or she will 
be approached by a cult recruiter," today asserted a 
survey article on cults in the current (MaV) issue of 
Ladies' Home fournal. 
In tht Journal article: 

• Cult researcher Flo Conway asserted, "Almost all the 
groups who are recruiting on campus don't identify them- 
selves." She cited the Reverend Sun Myung Moon's 
Unification Church which often enlists new "Moonies" 
through CARP, its Collegiate Association for the Research 
Principles organization. "They have centers on or near 
just about every campus in every state of the union," 
claims Ms. Conway, who spent four years investigating 
cults for a book. 'They present themselves as a campus 
social club. People are drawn into the Moonie movement 
and will be there three or four weeks before they even 
realize that CARP is part of the Moon organization. By 
that time, they have become so trapped by mind control 
techniques that they really no longer have the free will to 
break out" 

• Dr. Margaret Thaler Singer, a noted authority on cults, 
suted, "One of the largest and most established cults in 
the U.S. today uses almost line-by-line 'thought reform' 
techniques that were used by North Koreans on United 
Nations prisoners during the Korean War. While cults 

don't generally hold a gun to your head and threaten to 
execute you, that is not necessary, because social and 
psychological persuasion techniques are far more effec- 
tive," the University of California psychiatry professor 

• Ms. Conway also revealed, "In our research, we came 
across numerous reports of cults that were arming thenrv 
selves. Two of the larger organizations we found have 
been given instructions by their leaders that in case of 
what they consider to be blasphemy by outsiders, they 
should try to kill those people. And if they are unable to 
do so, they should kill themselves." 

In the article. Dr. Singer urged that cults be legally 
mandated to fully describe their identity and the nature 
of their activities before approaching schools or com- 

The psychiatrist asserted in the Journal: "The whole 
question of the First Amendment and what it does and 
doesn't protect bears closer examination as the result of 
cults. Many of our most prominent legal philosophers are 
already beginning to take a look at the issues involved and 
are considering what are the legal rights of families within 
our society. 

"If unethical cults are permitted to proliferate un- 
checked," Dr. Singer sUted, "more families could be 
threatened and we would have more people accepting 
totalistic and totalitarian methods of group living without 
being aware of exactly what they are involved in."

The next time you pick up a well-sharpened No. 2 
pencil and begin to hurriedly answer a standardized, 
multiple-choice test, chances are that your test is one of 
more than eight million given annually by the Educational 
Testing Service (ETS). You may know ETS manufactures 
SATs, LSATs, GREs and GMATs. With these tests alone, 
ETS influences the educational and career opportunities 
of millions of people. But the power of ETS does not 
begin or end with those tests. ETS markets 299 different 
tests. ETS tests are used to determine entrance to over 60 
occupations, including firefighters, actuaries, policemen, 
real estate brokers, sailors, teachers, gynecologists, engi- 
neers, and auto mechanics. ETS test results are the 
standards of access to some of the most powerful profes- 
sions: Foreign Service officers, New York stockbrokers, 
lawyers in over 40 states, CIA agents. Two million elemen- 
tary students uke ETS tests, and ETS is even developing 
ways to test Infants. ETS helps determine who will be 
eligible for financial aid and how much they will receive. 
The financial information ETS obtains on nearly two 
million families is more detailed than a mortgage applica- 
tion or an IRS return. ETS consultants and trainees help 
shape education and labor allocation policy in scores of 
countries, including Singapore, Brazil, and Saudi Arabia. 
And ETS has test centers in 120 countries. 

In thirty years, probably 90 million people have had 
their schooling, jobs, prospects for advancement, and 
beliefs in their own potential directly shaped by the quiet 
but pervasive power of ETS. 

What is the Educational Testing Service? How has it 
centralized so much power? Is it accountable to anyone, 
or anything? Should your opportunities be so influenced 
by ETS' standards of aptitude or intelligence? 

Despite its massive influence, few people question 
ETS. Students may want to tear up test forms in 
moments of frustration, but few of us think of challenging 
the corporation that makes the tests. We will soon release 
a lengthy report on ETS, written by Allan Nairn, which 
we hope will help people undersund, and question, the 
unique and unregulated power of this corporation. 

Indeed, ETS is, in non-dollar ways, a large corporation. 
It has more customers per year than GM and Ford com- 
bined. Despite its non-profit status, it declares roughly a 
million dollars in "non-profits" each year. This money is 
plowed back into corporate expansion and maintaining 
the ETS estate, which includes a 400-acre headquarters in 
Princeton, New jersey, a $250,000 home for the presi- 
dent, William Turnbull, and a three million dollar hotel/ 
conference center - all built with student test fees. Its 
revenue from test fe«> enabled ETS to double its size 
every five years from 1948 to 1972, a rate of growth 
faster than IBM. 

ETS's sales and near-monopoly power, combined with 
its privileged legal status as a non-profit corporation, make 
It unprecedented in corporate history. ETS is exempt 
from federal and state income taxes, is effectively beyond 
the reach of many anti-trust laws, and has no stock- 
holders. ETS escapes the restraints governing other cor- 
porations because it is an "educational" institution. 

The power of ETS is massive, as even one ETS execu- 
tive conceded. "No matter what they try to tell you here 

about how we really don't have much power," he said, 
"we know we do. We know we're the nation's gate- 
keeper." This gatekeeper can determine who enters 
college, graduate and professional schools, as well as many 
occupations and professions. Is that power legitimate? 

ETS defends its role as the gatekeeper by claiming it 
has developed the "science of mental measurement," but 
as our report will argue, the tests measure nothing more 
than how you answered a few multiple-choice questions. 
The correlation between SAT scores and first-year grades 
in college, for example, is often lower than the correlation 
between the test scores and the income of the test taker's 
parents. At best, standardized tests measure the special- 
ized skill of test-Uking, but they do not measure key 
determinants of success such as writing and research skill, 
ability to make coherent arguments, creativity, motiva- 
tion, stamina, judgment, experience, or ethics. 

ETS not only influences how institutions judge 
individuals, however; it also influences how individuals 
judge themselves. As Nairn says, "A false self-estimate or 
image is instilled in the mind of the individual who 
receives a standardized test score. For although the scores 
are significantly determined by social class, he is told they 
are objective, scientific measures of the individual." 

Moreover, test takers are subject to numerous injus- 
tices, ranging from incorrect scoring of tests, to late re- 
porting of applicant information, to secret evaluation of 
grades and test scores - and they have no recourse. 

We must begin to examine the examiners. 

There is a growing movement to reform and restruc- 
ture the testing industry. In New York, Ohio, Texas, and 
other states, student-run Public interest Research Groups 
(PIRGs) have introduced "Truth in Testing" legislation in 
their state legislatures. This legislation would force ETS 
and other testing companies to disclose test questions and 
answers, and all studies and data on the tests; it would 
also require companies to keep information on applicants 
confidential. Disclosing test answers would enable stu- 
dents to contest disputed answers, and thus eliminate 
much of the mystery surrounding the tests. ETS has said 
it is willing to release 99% of its test data. But, Nairn says, 
the bulk of this 99% is the material provided by the test- 
takers themselves - name, social security number, etc. 
Nairn says it is crucial to disclose that last one percent, as 
it includes ETS's extrapolations from the information 
provided by test-ukers - such as predictions of future 
academic success. 

The testing reform movement has other facets. Jesse 
Jackson is organizing around the issue of the ETS 
National Teacher Examinations which have systematically 
eliminated qualified black applicants from teaching jobs. 
The FTC has apparently found, contrary to ETS claims, 
that certain kinds of prep or cram courses can raise test 
scores - but the report has been withheld at this time. 
And several members of Congress have called for an 
investigation of the testing industry. 

Students now have opportunities to challenge the test

The "Aggies" of Delaware Valley College regained 
their offensive punch and capitalized on errors by the 
opposition to post a 3-0 record last week. On Monday 
(April 23) the "Aggies" journeyed to Susquehanna Univer- 
sity and won a doubleheader 9-8 in 8 innings and 7-1. The 
first game was a tight game with both teams making their 
share of mistakes. Tom Francello got to first on an error, 
advanced to second on a single by )im Dunbar and scored 
on a fielder's choice and passed balls. The "Aggies" 
played better in the second game and posted the 7-1 score. 
Steve Fornoff had the win with 3 strikeouts and allowing 
only two hits. 

On Wednesday (April 2S) the "Aggies" spotted 
Muhlenberg College three unearned runs In the second 
inning but scored five in the third to take a 5-3 lead. 
D.V.C added two insurance runs in the seventh and won 
6-3 to complete their 3-0 week. Jeff Theibault got the 
victory for the "Aggies" allowing 5 hits and 3 runs. 

The '^Aggies" resume play today (Tuesday, May 1) 
with a doubleheader at Kings College and Wednesday 
(May 2) another doubleheader at Scranton. The last 
regularly scheduled home game will be a doubleheader 
against Moravian on Saturday (May 5). 


On Wednesday (April 25) Delaware Valley College and 
Ursinus locked up in a classic track meet. The scores for 
the day: Delaware Valley College 67, Ursinus 67 and 
Haverford 47. Steve Lilly was a triple winner for D.V.C 
winning the 100 and 220-yard dashes and the broad jump. 
Mark Tankersley won the 1 20 high and 440 intermediate 
hurdles. Other individual winners fof the "Aggies" were 
Gary Walters in the shot, Seb Ca<5aro in the discus and 
Warren Robertson in the javelin. The meet went down to 
the final event, the mile relay and the tie resulted as 
Haverford won, Ursinus took second, and D.V.C. third. 
The MAC Track Meet is scheduled for May 4 and 5.

On Thursday, April 26th, the Weightlifting Club 
initiated the 300 Club, which is a union of student lifters 
who have demonstrated their power-lifting ability by 
bench pressing 300 pounds. Although not fully publi- 
cized, some individuals who knew about the event 
attempted this extraordinary feat. I would like to con- 
gratulate Tom Houpt, Bob Root, and Rich Caruso for 
attaining this prestigious achievement; and, in addition, to 
thank those individuals who gave a valiant attempt. This 
achievement is acknowledged, most imporuntly, by 
inscribing each name on a showcase plaque outside the 
gym in the lobby. For further deuiis and information, 
notify Scott Abrams in Ulman 105. 

Also scheduled on that day was the intermurai power- 
liftirig showdown. Unfortunately, not many showed any 
interest as evidenced by the very ?ew entrants. However, I 
would particularly like to acknowledge the 145 lb. weight 
class consisting of James Berdsley and Dave Zawissa, for 
demonstrating their interest, cooperation, and determina- 
tion. In a very intense, and head-to-head combat involving 
the three powerlifting events; bench pressing, squats, and 
deadlifts - jim just barely defeated Dave. 

Hopefully, next year plans such as these will meet with 
greater success and fulfillment. 

Xold hands."

NOTICE: The opinions expressed in any individual article do not necessarily represent the viewpoint of the paper or of the school. 


Dear Freshmen, 

Although the welcomes must be getting fairly mono- 
tonous by now, I too must welcome you to Delaware 
Valley Q>llege. I hope that you will be able to »y th^t 
you spent some of the most enjoyable moments of your 
life here. If you take advantage of the wonderful oppor- 
tunity which sUnds before you, you will also be able to 
say that your upcoming four years will have been some of 
the most profitable in both an educational and a social 

Unfortunately, the campus has of late been influenced 
by an astigmatism of falsely imagined inferiority. This 
plague stretches through the student body and parts of 
the faculty. It is, however, possible to rectify this situa- 
tion with your help. 

It is with this in mind that I challenge YOU, the 
freshman class, to help in an effort to rejuvenate the 
morale on campus by participating in the clubs and 
intramural sports programs which are of your interest. 
Also, you must work to your fullest potential with 
regard to your studies in order to achieve an academic 

You should demand of your faculty and advisors to 
have the intestinal fortitude to fail those who deserve it, 
but also to 'maintain the compassion required to help 
those who need and desire it. The standards should not be 
lowered to meet the performance of the students. The 
students' performance levels should be raised to a standard 
for which the college will be highly regarded and the 
students will not feel cheated. 

If ever in your career here at Delaware Valley College 
of Science and Agriculture you begin to lose your morale, 
please consider this following thought. Science and agri- 
culture are the resources to which man will inevitably 
turn in an effort to heal his continually growing multitude 
of self-inflicted wounds, and it is he who masters these 
resources in both knowledge and application who will 
perform a vital role in the amphitheatre of man's future. 

Good luck!!! 

Sincerely yours, 

Richard E. Lewis

"Mr. President, it is reported in yesterday's (August 1) 
New York Times in an article by Leonard Silk, that 
President Carter has likened the Palestinian issue to the 
"civil rights movement in the United States." I am 
shocked that up to this moment the White House has 
failed to set the record straight. If indeed the President 
has been quoted correctly and is comparing the Pales- 
tinians and their representatives, such as the PLO, to 
blacks in America and civil rights leaders such as Martin 
Luther King, he is betraying his total ignorance of history, 
denying today's reality and dangerously misleading the 
American people. 

There is no similarity whatsoever between the heroic 
struggle for equality of American t>lacks, culminating in 
what we call the Civil Rights Movement and what the PLO 
is doing in the Middle East. Our Civil Rights Movement 
was, as the President should know, characterized by an 
abiding commitment to non-violence, eloquently, unfor- 
gettably and most forcefully articulated by Martin Luther 
King. The PLO has time and again proven itself nothing 
more than a group of terrorists and murderers. They 
respect no rule or law. They seek not civil equality but 
the overthrow of a sovereign nation and staunch ally of 
the United States. President Carter must not be allowed 
to cause such unconscionable confusion. If the quotation 
is incorrect, he should clarify it. 

I believe the President should fully retract his state- 
ment immediately and I urge him to do so without any 
further delay.

Truth-in-Testing" Becomes a Law 
By Ralph Nader 

WASHINGTON-Until this summer, the Educational Test- 
ing Service in Princeton, New jersey, had good success in 
keeping itself free from much public inquiry. Though its 
standardized tests were taken by over 8 million customers 
— required for admission at most college and graduate 
schools in the country - ETS had successfully pulled a 
cloak of secrecy over their operations, and kept them 
secret despite the demands of consumer, parent, teacher 
and student groups for more accountability.- 

That was until this summer. 

In July, while the students it affected were at work or 
at the beach or catching up with summer courses, New 
York Governor Hugh Carey signed into law the nation's 
first strong "Truth-in-Testing" bill. The bill requires ETS 
to make public internal studies on the tests' validity that 
they have steadfastly kept secret; tell students how their 
scores will be reported to schools and what they are 
supposed to measure; and make the questions and correct 
answers available to students who request them. 

Clearly the bill only offers a reasonable modicum of 
scrutiny of this vast and powerful private corporation. But 
ETS fought it tooth and nail all the way. Last fall, they 
succeeded in watering down a "Truth-in-Testing" bill 
passed in California until it was virtually meaningless. 
They completely blocked another bill proposed in Mary- 
land this spring. 

In New York, they launched their most vigorous 
campaign to date. College Presidents and high school 
principals were buried under waves of telegrams, mailings 
and memos from ETS that misrepresented the provisions 
of the bill and warned of dire economic consequences if it 
passed. "I have never - never - received so much mail on 
an educational bill," said one SUNY University President 
"There's been a tremendous amount of pressure applied 
here," said an associate of SUNY Chancellor Robert 
Kibbee. "They came on like General Motors," added one 
Albany lobbyist. 

Though the company poured thousands of dollars 
into the campaign, it was to no avail. A coalition of 
parent, teacher, student, labor and minority groups led by 
the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) 
successfully convinced the Legislature of the merits of the 
bill. Hearings made it clear that any increased costs due to 
the bill wouldn't be great enough to justify an increase in 
fees or a decrease in services. 

So the test companies turned to their last threat: with- 
drawing the testing services they were created to provide. 
Months before the first tests were scheduled to be given 
under the new law, the Association of American Medical 
Colleges and the American Dental Association announced 
on July 17 that they were pulling their tests out of New 
York — even though those tests are required for admission 
to virtually every med school in the country. New York 
legislators are now investigating this blatant attempt to 
force the state to back off the law. 

The testers couldn't punish a single state for demand- 
ing some accountability if all the sutes under federal law 
were demanding accountability. As Congressman Ted 
Weiss of New York City said recently, the testers could 
not pull out of the entire country: they would have to 
choose between compliance and going out of business. 

Along with Representatives Shirley Chisholm of New 
York and George Miller of California, Weiss has intro- 
duced a national testing bill, H.R. 4949. Besides extending 
the provisions of the New York law to the entire country, 
it would also require the testers to make public informa- 
tion on how they formulated their fees and what they 
were doing with your money. 

Information is power, and the passage of this law 
would begin to bring into line the balance of power 
between the testers and the students they are supposed 
to serve. Their lobbying efforts, as we have seen, have 
been determined and expensive. To counter that, stu- 
dents should begin writing their Senators and Represen- 
tatives in support of H.R. 4949; they should also press 
student groups and administrators to issue similar declara-

Queen Elizabeth I, England's Virgin Queen, who dealt 
with such things as the Spanish Armada, Francis Drake 
and Sir Walter Raleigh, was not a woman of few words. 
She spoke her mind freely, which has led Vacada 
Humphrey to cull the quotes and come up with a 
one-woman, two-act, 90-minute Elizabethan dramatic 
collage called Henry's Daughter in which all the lines are 
those of Elizabeth, as recorded by historians, friends, and 
possibly foes. 

Henry's Daughter presents us with the living portrait 
of a dynamic woman at the end of her career. Knowing 
her power and aware of her loneliness, she now faces the 
dual problems of a young, hostile Parliament and racing 

The play is set in the Queen's study on the morning of 
her final Parliament. Using varying techniques and draw- 
ing on actual material from the whole of Elizabeth's long 
reign, its dramatic shaping began a new trend in one-man 
shows. Henry's Daughter is a compelling combination of 
historical fact and theatrical entertainment. 

Cavada Humphrey is best known for her performance 
as Mrs. Patrick Campbell in Dear Liar. Her life-long 
fascination with Elizabeth led her to compile this show 
for America in 1971. It was critically acclaimed in New 
York in 1973 and 1977 and comes to the Walnut 
directly from England following record-breaking per- 
formances at Wroxton Abbey and the Tower of London.

By Marth Gehringer 

As one strolls around Lake Archer, a footbridge is 
noticed, but ignored, since it is doubtful that it would be 
able to support a human's weight. Now, however, one no 
longer will need to ignore it. Mr. Happ, Superintendent of 
Grounds, has stated that action will be taken to repair 
the footbridge shortly. 

As it stands, or falls now, the footbridge has only a 
few planks remaining and most of these are either cracked 
or rotten. The rails alongside the bridge appear to be 
suffering from old igt. They are wobbly and deteriorating. 

But the reason for the lack of attention to the bridge 
is a logical one. The weather this summer was extremely 
uncooperative and when it did clear, other more pressing 
jobs were waiting. Now, however, the number of more 
urgent jobs is beginning to subside, thus allowing Mr. 
Happ's crew to complete other tasks, such as repairing the 

When the footbridge does eventually receive its face- 
lift, changes could be made to its appearance. Some of the 
possibilities include: removal of the rails on either side, 
since they are really not needed; making the bridge more 
substantial in some way; or even complete removal of the 
bridge because of the obvious unnecessary job it fulfills, 
although this last possibility is very remote. 

So next time you walk by the bridge, smile - it just 
might make it back to life after Dr. Happ is done with it.

The college photographer is about to gain a degree of 

That's a promise from the Paterson Darkroom Club, a 
national organization of some 1 2,000 amateur photo- 

"Unfortunately, too many college students go un- 
recognized for their accomplishments," a Paterson spokes- 
man said. "Aside from sports, there are not many activi- 
ties that allow a student to receive recognition, even if the 
recognition is strictly personal. 

"Some students excel in music, acting, photography 
and other activities that may shape their future vocation," 
the spokesman continued. "Since the Paterson Darkroom 
Club is involved with photography, we believe it would be 
an excellent public service if we were to award a special 
Certificate of Recognition to students who have news 
pictures published in their college newspapers." 

To receive a Certificate of Recognition, a student must 
submit a black and white copy of his or her news photo, 
along with a tearsheet from the college newspaper in 
which the picture was published. Name and address 
should be included on the back of the picture. Both 
picture and tearsheet should be mailed to the Paterson 
Darkroom Club, 211 East 43rd Street, New York, N.Y. 

There is no deadline when pictures should be received. 
They can be submitted at any time during the next 
twelve months. 

"This is not a contest," said the Paterson Darkroom 
Club spokesman. "Editors of college newspapers will have 
passed judgment on the pictures, and this is sufficient to 
warrant a Certificate of Recognition for the student." 

There is a chance that some photos may be published 
in the national newsletter, Paterson Developments, it was 


Apparently all students received a semester Calendar 
of Events which was printed by Alpha Phi Omega. This 
calendar was sent to students prior to the beginning of the 
fall semester 1979 and was compiled before the official 
College Calendar was issued from the President's office. 

I must point out that some of the entries on this 
calendar are INCORRECT. All students should make the 
following changes on this calendar.

Space O)loni2ation Advocated 

Dear Editor, 

As the decade of the 70's ends it appears as though 
the decade of the 80's will be full of economic and 
political insubility because we seem unable to come to 
grips with an energy crisis that must be dealt with effect- 
ively if western civilization is to continue. We have tried 
to solve the problem but so far we have failed because we 
believe that the solution lies here on this planet. 

The simple fact is tfiat the "steady sUte" society as 
advocated through policies of conservation and no-growth 
will not work in the long run because we will still be 
fitting over limited resources as the population from 
underdeveloped and third world nations skyrockets up- 
ward. We must give serious consideration to the idea of 
space colonization if we are to have any chance of solving 
our political, economic, social, ecological and other crises 
that continue to multiply instead of diminish. The "High 
Frontier" concept as fostered by Princeton physicist 
Gerard K. O'Neil is an excellent vision whose time has 
clearly come. 

Space (particularly manned) exploration can be more 
than just an expensive plaything as visualized by some. It 
can become a tool to be used to face the greatest chal- 
lenge of the second half of this century. Why can't we 
give it a chance?

The world today is faced viHth a multitude of problems 
of supply and demand, the foremost and most explosive 
being the shortage of food supplies. Man, with his basic 
survival needs, is living precariously as he over-populates 
his resource-limited environment. The year 2000 ap- 
proaches, and, vtnth every second, we come closer to the 
predicted population of over six billion. 

What will this explosion of people mean? Many 
possibilities can be visualized when predicting the future, 
but one fact is certain: world resources are definitely 
limited in their ability to provide for mass human survival. 
Today the celebrated Green Revolution effects have 
slowed following the oil shortage and its economic effects. 
Fertilizers and pesticides are priced out of the range of the 
average Third World farmer. Arable land is relatively fixed, 
and the population of the ocean fisheries is diminishing 
as more countries turn to the sea for protein. But the 
human population is still growing and demanding more. 

The United Nations has recognized approximately 160 
nations, each state claiming sovereignty over its territory 
and resources. As the problems of food supply and the 
world's vanishing resources have become widely recog- 
nized, private, bilateral and multilateral efforts have been 
attempted to alleviate the pressures. They have not 
achieved an economically feasible and lasting solution. 
The 160 nations have tried to conquer hunger, but old 
suspicions and political pressures have dimmed the 
prospect of successful results. Most of the producing 
nations' citizens do not face starvation or the fight for 
survival, so they are able to concentrate on more indus- 
trialized and aesthetic problems. 

The time has come for unified action to combat this 
future showdown for survival. What of unifying the world 
under a league or an official alliance? These methods 
throughout history have proven that they can produce 
only minimal results, because there is no binding which 
will hold when difficult or unpopular actions are neces- 
sary. The United Nations la a league which has had some 
international successes, but it has nb real power to bring 
controversial solutions to fruition. 

A world union of nations* can bring about an organ- 
ized effort to preserve humanity and offer a way for 
nations to survive through mutual assistance and organ- 
ized productive action. The effects of hunger and resource 
scarcity do not respect national boundaries. We could 
eliminate trade barriers, resource hoarding and petty 
bureaucracies by uniting under a central governing body 
which would work along with national governments. 

There are simply too many people and sovereign 
nations for today's and tomorrow's challenges. Let us 
form a union of nations* to conquer the problems of the 
future today. As Clarence K. Streit said in his book 
Union Now, "If we will not do this little for man's 
freedom and vast future . . . catastrophe must come, and 
there is no one to blame but ourselves." 

* By quoting as support to the author's reasoning Clarence 
Streit 's book Union Now, "notions" In the context used 
Is presumed to be the sovereign citizens of the nations. 

WASHINGTON, D.C.-The National Research Council

funds, new fellowships awarded in the Spring of 1980 will 
be for periods of three years, the second and third years 
contingent on certification to the Foundation by the 
fellowship Institution of the student's satirfactory pro- 
gress toward an advanced degree in science. 

These fellowships will be awarded for study or work 
leading to Master's or doctoral degrees in the mathe- 
matical, physical, medical, biological, engineering, and 
social sciences, and in the history and philosophy of 
science. Awards will not be made in clinical, law, educa-

Mrs. Margaret B. Canon, from Newtown, Pa., a senior 
majoring in Agronomy, was awarded a $750 scholarship 
in conservation by the Soil Conservation Society. 

Mrs. Canon was one of the 24 recipients among a total 
of more than 300 students from universities and colleges 
from all over the United States and Canada who applied 
for this award. 

The scholarships are provided to encourage qualified 
juniors and seniors to complete their training and pursue a 
career in a conservation-related field. 

The Soil Conservation Society of America (SCSA) is a 
private, non-profit scientific and educational association, 
dedicated to advancing the science and art of good land 
use and conservation of our natural resources. It has over 
15,000 members in the United Sutes, Canada, and 80 
other countries. 

According to Dr. Prundeanu, Chairman of the Agron- 
omy Department, it is for the second year in a row that a 
Delaware Valley College student has been awarded this 
scholarship. This is a reflection of the kind of students 
and the eduution they receive at the College. Last year's 
recipient was Wesley Ramsey, who at present is working 
with the Soil Conservation Service in Bucks County.

The Security Department recently announced that in 
an effort to relieve some of the crowded conditions in the 
student parking areas, they have granted to a number of 
students special parking permits which allow parking in 
Lots H and I. Students who registered early for these 
special permits may check with the Security Office to 
see whether or not their requests were approved. The 
permits are valid for the duration of the 1979-1980 
school year. 

Mr. Pence, the Director of Security, stated that all 
student vehicles parking in Lots H and i MUST display 
their permit on the dashboard or else will be ticketed. 
Also, the permits are non-transferable and students must 
enter and exit the grounds via the south gate. 

Off to its best start in years, the "Aggies" of Delaware 
Valley College travel to face the "Jersey Devils" of 
Fairleigh Dickinson University at Madison on Saturday 
in a Middle Atlantic Conference game. Last year DVC 
defeated FDU 10-7 in a close contest to close out the 
1978 season. This year is the first year of conference 
play for the Jersey Devils who enter Saturday's contest 
with an 0-2 record. 

For FDU the players to watch are sophomore quarter- 
back Cliff Koch and returning tailback senior Gene Dul. 
Last year Koch connected on a 22-yard touchdown 
pass for their only score. Defensively, sophomore Juan 
Grau, a linebacker, leads the Jersey Devils. 

Last week the Aggies upped their record to 2-1 by 
defeating visiting Moravian College 20-5. The Aggies 
got on the scoreboard first as senior Bill Mullen (Upper 
Perkiomen, Pa.) scored a T.D. on a 70-yard run. Mullen 
appeared to be tackled at the line of scrimmage but 
scurried for the score on a good second effort. Gary 
Myers (Pennridge, Pa.) added the extra point A blocked 
punt provided tfie "Greyhounds" with a safety. The 
only other scoring in the first half was a 33-yard field 
goal by James Roberts. 

DVC opened the second half with an interception 
by Keith Sipple (Quakertown, Pa.) and a 45-yard run. 
Myers added the extra point. The Aggies scored again 
in the fourth quarter on a 40-yard run by Greg 
Solicondro (Philadelphia, Pa.). Myers' kick failed. 

The stingy Aggie defense did an outstanding job 
holding the Greyhounds to 18 yards rushing, inter- 
cepting two passes and recovering two fumbles. 

On Tuesday, Moose Lodge 1284 of Doylestown 
honored the outstanding players of the game along with 
sUrs from both C.B. East and C.B. West High Schools.

According to the authors of G/060/ Reach, Richard 
Barnet and Ronald Muller, "the power of the global 
corporation derives from its unique capacity to use 
finance, technology and advanced marketing skills to 
integrate production on a worldwide scale." By viewing 
the world as "one economic unit," multinational cor- 
porations (MNCs) employ centralized policy-making, in- 
tegrated economies of scale and sophisticated communi- 
cations technology to "coordinate decisions on pricing, 
financial flows, marketing, tax minimization, research 
and development, and political intelligence on a global 
level . . ." 

Consequently, for better or worse, the global outlook 
and policies of MNCs have thrust mankind into an age 
of increasing economic interdependence. Furthermore, 
recent studies demonstrate that MNC activity is rapidly 
expanding. For example, in 1973 the U.S. Senate Finance 
Committee discovered that the average p-owth rate of 
the more successful multinational corporations was two 
to three times that of most advanced industrial countries. 
And, quoting a Wharton School study by Professor 
Perlmutter, Global Reach predicts that "by 1985, 200 to 
300 global corporations will control 8096 of all productive 
assets of the non-Communist world." 

Although practically all multinational corporations 
originate in industrialized democracies, by no means do 
these countries control the operations of their MNCs. 
In fact, throughout the 1970s, the policies of these 
nations have consistently conflicted with the activities 
of global corporations over such diverse issues as the sale 
of NATO technology to the Soviet Union, the exporta- 
tion of domestic jobs, speculations on the dollar, Third 
World relations and energy policies. Yet, in nearly all 
instances, it has been the leverage of national govern- 
ments that has diminished in the face of expanding global 

Thus, according to Blake and Walters' The Politics 
of Global Economic Relations, MNCs threaten national 
power because "they are the most visible manifestation 
of the limits on national autonomy imposed by the 
global politicJ economy." Moreover, so long as existing 
international organizations, such as the United Nations, 
GATT and the IMF function primarily as sounding- 
boards for national policies, the coordinated, global 
outlook of a typical MNC "stands in vivid contrast with 
the fragmented world view of the international organiza- 
tion whose mana^ment has little authority and whose 
member states often disagree not only on the means. . . 
but also the subsunce of the objectives." 

Therefore, what is needed to assess and address 
properly the impact of multinational corporations is an 
international forum that transcends the interests of 
national governments and directly represents the views 
of the people, the ones ultimately affected by MNC 
expansion. Such a forum exists in the federal union 
plan, which would unite the citizens of industrialized 
democracies - people with similar social, economic and 
political ideas - in an international organization that 
could harness global corporate power as an agent for 
worldwide peace and balanced economic growth. 

In an interdependent world, the advent of a federal 
union is a logical development. If the economic institu- 
tions of industrialized democracies are rapidly trans- 
cending national boundaries, then the social and political 
goals of democratic peoples should follow.

as a Pjg Roast. After the disappointment over the absence 
of a pig on a spit, sizzling over an open fire, had been 
overcome approximately 125 seniors settled down to a 
delicious meal of roast pork loin, corn on the cob, 
macaroni and poUto salads, assorted finger foods, and 
ice cream cones. The Dodd Brothers Band entertained 
the group v^th a delightful repertoire of country blue- 
grass music which lasted well into the evening. Congratu-

NOW 3-1 

by M. McManiman 

After splitting a tri-meet September 15th at Wilkes, 
the Harriers of Del Val returned home and swept this past 
Saturday's meet. 

Two weeks ago the Harriers traveled to Wilkes to take 
on host Wilkes and Kings. The team fared well against 
Kings, beating them 23-38, but suffered a tough loss to 
Wilkes 30-25. Jim Parsons, a transfer student from 
Ursinus, was the first man to finish the five-and-a-half 
mile course in 27:53. Chip Cowher, 7th (29:49); Chuck 
Steelman, 9th (30:32); Matt Hengel, 10th (30:33); and 
joe Gilbert, 11th (30:34) were the other scorers fo» Del 
Val. Also doing well were Bruce Murphy and Rich 
Weidman, 13th (30:56); Craig Edgerton, 17th (31:32); 
and Russ Rising, 19th (31:40). 

After the upset loss to Wilkes, the Harriers put in a 
hard week of practice in anticipation of this past 
Saturday's home opener against Spring Garden and Phil- 
adelphia Pharmacy. The rigorous workouts paid off as our 
Harriers overwhelmed Spring Garden 15-50 and subdued 
Pharmacy 24-35. Jim Parsons led the way, finishing the 
five-mile-plus course in 28:39 (under conditions that were 
anything but desirable), falling short of the course record 
by fifty-three seconds. The course became more of a 
challenge to stay afloat than to stay afoot due to Friday's 
rain. The slick and swampy conditions caused quite a few 
spills and thrills for several runners. One runner even lost 
his shoes in the usually quiet Featherbed Stream. 

Sue Wagner, a freshman, and Marie Castro, a senior, 
were the first of six women entered to cross the finish 
line with times of 39:53 and 41:57, respectively. Good 
show ladies! Del Val's other top Harriers were Bruce 
Murphy, 4th (30:51); Matt Hengel, 5th (31:03); Chuck 
Steelman, 6th (31:11); and Rich Weidman, 8th (31:29). 
Chip Cowher, 9th (31:42) and Joe Gilbert, 10th (31:52) 
aided in giving Del Val seven of the top ten positions. 

This Saturday the Harriers host Swarthmore at 1:30 
and Scranton, Lebanon Valley and Philadelphia Textile on 
October 6th at 2:00 p.m. Come on out and support your 
team. Once again we remind anyone interested in running 
should see "Doc" Berthold or meet in front of the James 
Work Memorial Gymnasium at 4:15 weekdays. So come 
on and join the fun!

Dear Editor, 

The Bill of Rights guarantees the right of freedom of 
religion. This right is being infringed upon at DVC. 

What I refer to is that classes will be held as usual on 
October 1, instead of being cancelled. On this date, this 
year, occurs the most important Jewish holiday Yom 
Kippur. The reason given by Mr. Tasker for classes on this 
date is to meet state requirements for number of class 
days, since there are no longer Saturday classes. Granted 
one can miss class, and get an excuse, but it is the prin- 
ciple of the thing. It is comparable to having classes on 
Christmas or Easter. 

Name Withheld 


To: The Editor 

Collegian, DVC 

As v^e begin this new academic year I sense in the air a 
feeling of optimism and togetherness that is stronger than 
has been usual at our College. Certainly part of that re- 
flects the "clean slate" with v»rhich we begin each new 
year. But somehow, I sense that this year is different in a 
very positive way. I sense that this year people -faculty, 
suff, students - are thinking a little bit less about them- 
selves and a little bit more about what we can do together. 
I sense a greater appreciation of what we have, what we 
are doing, and, more important, the enormous potential 
of what we can do if we all pull together. 

I've tried to figure out why there is that feeling. I 
don't have the answer. But still I feel it. Maybe we are 
beginning to come around to the realization that what we 
have here as a campus community is something to take 
pride in, something worth working on to our mutual 
benefit Whatever the reason, I have that feeling. And I 
hope I'm right!

program at Delaware Valley College. Under the direction 
of Diane Swartz, the women's volleyball team prepared 
intensely for their inauguration into the Middle Atlantic 
Conference. They hosted Kings College, Monday evening, 
September 24th. The Lady Aggies, led by Senior Captain, 
Karen Smith, won the first game 1 5-1 0. 

Kings, using their height advantage, spiked their way 
to a win in the second game 15-9. In the third game, 
Delaware Valley regrouped and defeated Kings 15-7. 
Taking advantage of their momentum gained in game 3, 
the Aggies jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the 4th game. 
However, Kings coach, John Shields, called a much needed 
time out, and his girls rallied to defeat the Aggies 15-8. 
The 5th and final game Kings dominated play and out- 
scored the home team 15-6. Outstanding performers for 
Kings included: Captain Kandi Karuza, Abita Vassallo, 
and Duffy Lombard.

NOW 3-2 

By Paul Stanziale 

On September 29, the Aggies traveled to Fairleigh 
Dickinson College in Madison, Nj where they mounted a 
convincing victory over the )ersey Devils 43-0. The win 
already marks Del Val's best season in years. Bill Mullen 
plunged across the goal line twice for the Aggies and 
quarterbacks Tom Kenny and Ron Haraka each connected 
for touchdown passes. 

The real test came on October 6th, when Del Val 
hosted Lycoming College. The Aggies took an early 9-0 
lead with a safety and a touchdown. The defense was able 
to preserve the lead until midway through the fourth 
quarter. Lycoming quickly turned the game around, 
accumulating 24 points. The Aggie defense, which played 
most of the game, was tough, but unfortunately the 
prolonged field time they had to endure took its toll. 

Saturday, October 1 3th, the Aggies will be looking for 
their fourth victory when they travel to Upsala College in 
East Orange, N J.

"So this is what it's like down here!" 


By l\1artha Gehr/nger 

To laundry or not to laundry, that is the question. 
One must wonder if clean clothes are worth the effort at 
DVC. The fumes, the heat, the waiting - are clean clothes 
worth all this? To Some the answer is NO and they have 
found alternate methods to get their clothes clean, either 
relying on dear old Mom, or lugging it to the laundry in 

Yet, what about the poor students who want clean 
clothes and cannot rely on these alternate methods? They 
are in the unenviable position of being at the mercy of the 
laundromat here at DVC. 

When one enters the laundromat the first impressions 
are to leave because the heat is unbearable. But you push 
in through the heat with your trusty machete and finally, 
after considerable waiting, you obtain your washer. Then 
the fun begins. An odor slowly becomes more noticeable, 
panic sets in, for it is unidentifiable. Thoughts race 
through one's mind. Is it a machine preparing to blow up, 
a gas that could cause cancer, or a fume that could blow 
your mind? You stay because the odds are on your side 
(no one has died yet from doing his wash), and your wash 
is going to the rinse cycle. Soon the heat becomes unbear- 
able and you go gasping for breath into the hall. However, 
this usually occurs just as a dryer beconrtes free, and since 
you are unaware cf it, the wait continues. Eventually, you 
do get your laundry dried, but then what? The ironing, of 
course. But how does one iron without an ironing board 
and iron? You then realize what this means - wrinkled 

Is anything being done to remedy this situation? 
Where are the fans and the exhaust system? 

Mrs. Navarre from the Residence Life Office com- 
ments on this. The main problem is that the basement of 
Ulman Hall was not meant to be a laundromat; therefore, 
proper ventilation was thought to be impossible to install. 
Then the Residence Life Office was made aware of the 
fumes in the laundromat. Now, an exhaust system will be 
"looked into". This will also, hopefully, alleviate some of 
the heat problems. 

Now about the ironing boards. True, there is a place 
for them, but some time ago it was recommended that 
they be removed. The reason for this is that the colle^ 
never provided irons, and it would be bothersome for 
someone to carry his wash and iron down to Ulman 
basement to iron. The alternate to this was an ironing 
board on each floor in each women's dorms only. After 
all, the stereotype man never irons anyway. 

But alas, fear not! If a machine should attack you or 
any other problems arise, such as a money-eating machine, 
don't hesitate to report them to Mrs. Navarre in the 
Residence Life Office in Allman Building. That's what 
she's there for!

Assistant Coach J oe Coradetti 

Coach Joe Coradetti has been on the Del Val coaching 
suff for a year now as a part-time football coach. This 
year he was promoted to a full-time position of defensive 
coordinator and Head Track Coach. This is Coach Cora- 
detti's seventh year at coaching football. His prior 
experience includes two years of coaching Jr. High School 
and three years at the High Schools - Central Bucks West 
and Pennridge. Mr. Coradetti attended Juniata College in 
mid-state Pennsylvania where he was an outstanding 
athlete. His record there includes being a Middle Atlantic 
Conference Track Champion. 

When asked why Mr. Coradetti was selected as Assist- 
ant Football Coach and Defensive Coordinator, Head 
Coach Al Wilson noted his character, ability, and intelli- 
gence as primary reasons for his choice. Wilson also 
pointed out that being from the Middle Atlantic Confer- 
ence (our own Conference) is a great asset to Del Val. 
"He knows the teams we play against." added Wilson. "He 
also has a. feeling and an understanding for athletes and 
students." These are all good prerequisites for a coaching 

When asked if Mr. Coradetti has lived up to the expec- 
tations of the staff, Wilson noted this season's record, the 
highlights of which are two shutouts and a strong 
defensive posture. Although the final outcome of last 
week's Parents' Day game was a loss to Lycoming, Aggie 
defense made an impressive first half showing; which, with 
a blocked punt and a safety put two points on the board 
for the Aggies. When asked to comment on his own 
record, Mr. Coradetti reminded me that this is a team 
effort and should reflect on the team and not only 

"I hope I am contributing to a sound and good foot- 
ball program," says Coradetti "and a solid athletic depart- 
ment" when asked what he thought he could contribute 
to Del Val. When asked how he likes it here, he said the 
personnel and athletic department were made up of very 
knowledgeable and responsible people; and he enjoys 
working with tlwm. Mr. Coradetti also wants to make an 
"excellent Track and Field program" in the spring. I am 
sure we will be hearing more on that later in the year.

The Lady "AggieGators" of Delaware Vatley College 
opened their 1979-80 field hockey season Friday, Sep- 
tember 28th, on Alumni Field in Doytestown, Pa., against 
Muhlenberg College. 

With the exception of a penalty stroke midway 
throu^ the first half, neither team threatened offensively. 

Linda Budrewicz (Engllshtown, N)), Aggie goalkeeper, 
stopped 6 shots out of seven defensively, while the 
offensive team had only seven shots on goal; three of 
which sailed over the end line! The outstanding performer 
for the Aggies on offense was Brenda Wolfe (Perkasie, 

Anita Gregg scored the lone goal for the "Mules" and 
proved to be the heroine as the "Mules" spoiled the Aggie 
opener 1-0. 

While the Lady field hockey players were struggling at 
home, the Aggie volleyball team traveled to Messiah 
College where they encountered a strong "set-spike" 
combination and were defeated 3-0. The volleyball team 
never untracked and found themselves playing defense 
throu^out the match, which ended in little over an hour. 
Game scores were: 15-4, 15-4, and 15-10. 

The volleyball team, in its first varsity year, is now 0-2.

Dear Editor, 

One thing unique to DVC are the different zones 
which exist on campus. Not only are there different time 
zones, but there are also different climates. 

The lecture room in Allman Building is the Antarctic 
(hopefully the heating was repaired over the summer); 
Feldman Agriculture Building is temperate; while Mandell 
is the tropics. What happened to thd President's guidelines 
for saving energy by keeping the thermostat at 68°F? 

Also, one notices a singular lack of screens on the 
buildings. Thus when windows are opened, it is an invita- 
tion for flies and other insects to come in. This isn't so bad 
in a classroom, but is disgusting to see in the David Levin 
Dining Hall. Flies are extremely unsanitary. What can be 
done to remedy this situation? 

Speaking of food and the Dining Hall, will we still 
have special dinners for various holidays? Everyone appre- 
ciated the special dinners for Columbus Day, Valentine's 
Day, and would like to see them continued. Who is 
responsible for them? Student government or administra- 

Sally Garber 


Anyone can now get an interest-free student loan. 

There are no longer any restrictions such as high earn- 

The federal government will pay the interest during 
the tinne the student is in school and for a nine-month 
period thereafter at which time the student must begin 

Passage last year of the Middle Income Student Assist- 
ance Act assured students that no income test would be 
used in obtaining a student loan free of interest while the 
student is enrolled. 

Then, just recently, additional legislation at the federal 
level insured availability of funds from private lenders by 
lifting a restrictive 5% maximum cap that had been placed 
on a "special allowance" paid for participation. 

According to the Pennsylvania Higher Education 
Assistance Agency, which administers the student loan 
program for the Commonwealth, the special allowance 
rau now will "float" with the 91 -day Treasury Bill rate, 
and this will guarantee lenders a fair return on their 
investment in the student loan market. Lenders receive 
the special allowance in addition to the flat 7% they are 
paid by the federal government for money loaned to 

The private lending community in Pennsylvania has 
loaned $1,469,711,241 to 535,044 students since the 
program began in 1964, with PHEAA serving as the 
guarantor of these loans. 

In recent years, the borrowing activity by students has 
soared, increasing from $107,371,059 in 1975-76 to an 
all-time high of $258,352,691 in 1978-79. Last year 
lenders indicated to PHEAA that the possibility loomed 
that student loan funds could dry up unless a more 
favorable return on extended monies was made possible. 

Efforts by PHEAA and the American Bankers Associa- 
tion resulted in the "floating rate" legislation being 

PHEAA Executive Director Kenneth R. Reeher said he 
views the removal of the special allowance cap as being of 
paramount importance in keeping alive the flow of funds 
from private lenders to student borrowers especially now 
that many middle and upper middle income families will 
qualify for federal payment of interest charges for the 
first time. 

"Removal of the cap," said Reeher, "enables the 
lender to cope with all market conditions over an ex- 
tended investment period and is an approach that will 
effectively encourage continued lender program involve- 
ment." He also said that it ensures lenders a competitive 
return on student loan accounts as compared with other 
types of investments.

Our Harriers are on the run! Saturday, September 
29th, saw the team embarrass Swarthmore and Albright 
by capturing seven of the top ten placements, including 
first and third. 

Jim Parsons, again, led the way beating his nearest 
competitor by over one minute with a time of 28:46. 
Bruce Murphy was the third runner to finish with a time 
of 30:14. S. Daniels of Swarthmore finished second 
(29:55) and F. Mirecki of Albright took the fourth posi- 
tion (30:23). The next minute saw five Del Val Harriers 
cross the line without any competition. Freshman Rich 
(Jungleman) Weaver ran half the race barefooted and still' 
finished sixth with a time of 30:58. Next to finish was 
Rich Weidman (31:02), Craig Edgerton (31:08) and 
Chuck Steelman (31:21). 

By Saturday's decisive sweep, 19-44 over Swarthmore 
and 18-45 over Albright, the Harriers brought their season 
record up to five wins and one loss (5-1 ). It was also the 
89th and 90th official victories for Coach Berthold who 
started here in 1969. Including several "unofficial" wins, 
it is very possible the team could collect the 100th victory 
for "Doc" this season. If ever a record represented a 
coach, this one is cerUinly true. ONE HUNDRED 
VICTORIES IN TEN YEARS is something we can all be 
proud of. Give us your support and we will make an all- 
out attempt to GO FOR IT! 


It's Sunday afternoon. What better time is there to 
take a drive. But where shall we drive? Through Bucks 
County, of course! Ah, yes, scenic Bucks County - places 
to go and things to do. 

While driving down the historic highways, occasionally 
we have to relax and enjoy the beauty of the rustic 
countryside. Before we sit back just to enjoy the ride, 
there are certain things that we must look (or should I say 
"look out") for. 

First, a good stiff bracer of tranquilizer is an excellent 
start. Now that you are sufficiently drugged, you can face 
the roads full steam ahead. 

Out-of-state drivers, the arch enemy of the Pennsyl- 
vania road. A good idea for newcomers to the Bucks 
County scene, driving its roads for the first time, is to 
start out by just following a few New Jersey or New York 
drivers. Use caution when doing this, though. Start by 
following them short distances at a time. This will aid in 
cutting down on hair loss and cost. (Pcpto Bismol is 
expensive.) Finding a New Jersey driver won't be very 
hard since they usually pull out directly in front of on- 
coming cars. Soon, even the novice can readily pick out 
the characteristic swerving from one side of the lane to 
the other. As a rule the car in question will also be poking 
along at 20 m.p.h. under the speed limit while pointing at 
every unusual sight. Sometimes this slow driving precedes 
a turn. You usually won't know this until it's too late 
because turn signals are not standard in out-of-state cars. 

This is only the beginning of your adventure. This 
County is a farm community, and so the roads are full of 
farmers and farm equipment. Farm equipment poses an 
especially difficult problem. This is figuring out what is in 
the container being pulled by the tractor. Liquid fertilizer 
isn't too bad. The worst that can happen is to have some 
liquid spill onto the car, dissolve the paint and eat through 
the hood. Grain isn't bad unless it's still on the cob, in 
which case the ear corn will mysteriously jump from the 
wagon and smash the windshield. Following a manure 
spreader speaks for itself. The worst thing of all is that 
tractors are deathly slow and usually too wide to get 
around. Forget trying to intimidate the operator of the 
tractor because he knows it's a one-ton car against nine 
tons of tractor pulling a few tons of equipment. Besides, 
the farmer enjoys watching a car go off onto a soft 
shoulder and sink up to the axles. 

Next week we'll look at a few more of the fun people 
you're likely to meet on an afternoon drive. 


D.T.A., the National Agricultural Honor Society, is 
organizing a tutoring service for the student body. Any 
student requiring assistance is eligible for this aid. If

The Delaware Valley Aggies dropped their record 
to 3-3 in a game where interceptions were the deciding 
factor. In fact, Del Val had 4 passes intercepted. 

An interception by Chuck Witczak 3:19 into the 
fourth quarter lead to an Upsala 41 -yard scoring drive, 
breaking a 7-7 tie. The conversion failed, leaving the score 

The nfiost critical interception came with 1:46 left in 
the game. The Aggies had the ball in good field position 
when Bob Peters of Upsala intercepted a Tom Kenny pass 
and returned it 70 yards for a touchdown. The two-point 
conversion attempt was good, making the score 21-7. 

Del Val's first score came from a 93-yard drive in four 
playf late in the third quarter. Tom Kenny hit tight end 
Phil Boob for the T.D. Metro Malasavage caught a touch- 
down pass from Tom Kenny on the last play of the game, 
making the final score 21-13. 

4 Although he tossed three interceptions, Tom Kenny 
unted 204 yards in the air. Upsala literally shut down 
the Aggie running attack, allowing only 38 yards for the 
whole game. 

The Aggies' defense again played a fine game but the 
offense failed to provide the needed relief. 

Del Val still has some leading statistics. There are three 
remaining games and two are at home. A strong attend- 
ance from both students and faculty would help to spark 
some more Aggie victories.

A itrange phenomenon is sweeping across the campus; 
Ifte iiniform of the standard college student is not solely 
|#ant and sneakers any more. Rather dresses and skirts, 
kjgh heels and boots have made the invasion into the 
#>s«tf of the dorms. 

# And what, you nuy ask, it the reason for this? They 
f»nie from the zany, "I usually hate to, but when the 
spirit strikes me, I like to shock people" to the practical, 
"I ran out of clean jeans," to the more intimate one of 
attracting the opposite sex. Random sampling of the 
student body reveals various reasons for dressing up. Some 
of the reasons are these: "I felt like it," "a full day of 
classes", "Why not?", "special occasions", "to show off 
new clothes", and "No labs." 

No matter what the reason, the results are obvious; 
the student body is looking good! 

Dear Editor, 

I have been disturbed by the present cohdition of 
Delaware Valley's dairy farm. My concern stems mainly 
from the recent failure of our farm to pass inspection. 
Not only has our farm been unsuccessful in passing one 
time, but on three consecutive inspections it has fallen 
short of the goal. 

My distress is legitimate for several reasons. First, the 
situation at our dairy is a direct reflection on the students. 
To attend any college or university today, especially a 
private school, requires a great deal of money and time. 
However, a quality education is worth the sacrifices. 
Obviously an education of high caliber entails a degree of 
excellence in every aspect of that educational process. 
DVC is dedicated to science and agriculture, and the dairy 
would seem to be high on the priority list of the College's 

Another valid reason for my concern is the adminis- 
tration's unknowing attitude. Whether the administration 
has been misinformed, or is taking a purely apathetic 
position is not the point. The only proper attitude is that 
a problem must be recognized and dealt with accordingly. 
In the end, the administration has the final say in all 
matters concerning the college. It is up to DVC's execu- 
tives to determine what department receives the attention 
of the school. They allot money, manpower, tim?, and a 
host of other resources to the areas in which they see fit. 

An important sidelight to this situation is that no one 
person, or one bureaucratic department can be blamed for 
the problems at our dairy. The condition exists because 
everyone of us has let it get out of hand. The "students are 
responsible for applying pressure to the administration, 
and supplying the majority of the work force. The 
administration is responsible for realizing that a problem 
exists, for having concern for the present and future merit 
of our College, for having concern for the student's 
educational experience, and for allocating the resources 
needed to correct the ditemna. 

Respectfully submitted, 
James Quartuccio

While one may be asking this question, the answers 
received may be astonishing to hear: 

"Oh, D.T.A. again. Yeah, I know all the denul tech- 
nicians on campus!" 

Or maybe, "Isn't that some sort of new punk rock 

And finally, "You mean we actually have a club like 
thatat Del Val?l" 

Yes, everyone, Del Val does have an Eastern Chapter 
of Delta Tau Alpha, alias D.T.A. The D.T.A.'s orgar.iza- 
tion is an honor society for non-land grant agricultural 

The members, all agricultural, are first selected by an 
overall grade average of 2.5 and at least a 3.0 in all 
agricultural courses. This list of candidates is then picked 
over by the existing D.T.A. members for their involve- 
ments and activities at Del Val. A vote of two-thirds is 
then needed to accept the new member. At this point 
letters of acceptance are sent to these select people Ifi 
hope they will join the organization. 

D.T.A. has existed here back to the days of the 
National Farm School. D.T.A. is involved in a college 
tutoring service for needy students, along with supportii^ 
leadership, scholarship, and the fine profession of ai^ici^- 
ture. ■ 

Now that everyone knows what and who we are, v« 
wish everyone a happy and educational school year.

Washington -Senator John Heinz (R-Pa) has introduced a 
bill which states that the United States Congress feels that 
the Soviet Union should assure full and equal participa- 
tion in the 1980 Summer Olympics for all athletes, 
spectators and journalists. 

"I am calling upon the Soviets to refrain from harass- 
ing and discriminating against citizens of any hation, 
religion, political affiliation, or ethnic background during 
the 1 980 Olympics," Heinz said. 

"The Soviet Union has indicated that it will exclude 
representatives from Radio Liberty, Radio Free Europe, 
and the Voice of America from covering the Olympic 
games. A new Soviet law subjects all former Soviet 
citizens, regardless of current citizenship, to Soviet law. 
This is a direct threat to Soviet emigres who wish to 
attend the games as participants, spectators, or journalists. 

"Such policies clearly violate the substance and spirit 
of Olympic fair play, mutual respect and equity for all. 
To allow discrimination and harassment in any form 
would render the Olympics a meaningless and politicized 

"This resolution calls for the Soviets to abandon their 
reprehensible disregard for individual freedom. We must 
not remain silent while the Soviets continue to ignore the 
ideals and essence of the Olympic spirit. 

"It is imperative that both Houses of Congress join 
together to issue a statement of strong concern over 
Soviet policies which will inevitably affect international 
participation at the 1980 Moscow Olympics." 

This resolution was introduced in the House by Jack 
Kemp (R-NY) and 31 other House cosponsors. Senate 
cosponsors to date include Foreign Relations Committee 
Member S.I. Hayakawa (the bill has been referred to the 
Foreign Relations Committee for action), and Senators 
Goldwater, Schmitt, Armstrong, Boschwitz, Humphrey, 
Thurmond and Stevens.

Parents' Day 1979 was a toUl loss for Del Val 
athletics. It will be a day not soon forgotten as we 
suffered through home losses in soccer, football and cross 
country, as well as an away loss in hockey. 

Our Harriers faced their first challenge of the year 
taking on Lebanon Valley, Scranton University and 
Philadelphia Textile. Textile opted not to run against the 
stringent competition, therefore guaranteeing all other 
teams at least one victory. That victory was to be the 
only one our Harriers would savor this day. 

Our Harriers were simply outclassed as only one of the 
top ten runners was from Del Val. Jim Parsons brought 
the Parents' Day crowd to a roar as he entered the sta- 
dium neck to neck with L.V.'s Lee Pelton. Responding to 
the crowd, Jim let it all loose and outdistanced Pelton by 
ten Seconds. This was also Jim's best performance of the 
year as he completed the course in 28:28. The next 
minute and a hajf looked like a contest between L.V. and 
Scranton as nine runners crossed the fifty-yard marker 
before Del Val's Matt Hengel finished in the eleventh 
position at 30:03. Chip Cowher was our third man in, 
finishing thirteenth overall with a time of 30:18. The 
next D.V.C. runner to finish was Jim Murphy, 16th, at 
30:55. Rich Weidman was 17th finishing in 30:58; Craig 
Edgerton was 19th with a time of 31:19; Joe Gilbert was 
21st at 31:43. Rounding out our top ten was Carl 
Peilington, 22nd, at 31:55; Rich Weaver, 23rd at 32:01; 
and Rick Stein man, 25th, at 32:23. 

NOTE: Six of our top ten finishers put in the best 
performances of the year on the home course. Congratu- 
lations to Lauren Clauson, cut 4:00 off best time; Marie 
Castra, cut 2:17 off best performance; and Kathiann Held 
and Jeanne Cranny who cut over a minute off their best 
runs. Way to go, ladies!

By Martha Gehringer 

The famous Ginkgo trees on campus are to be admired 
in spite of their fragrant smell. The Ginkgo trees are the 
only living representative of its division, Ginkgophyta, 
still alive. Therefore, it can be considered a living fossil. 
One characteristic of this tree is the fact that it is a 
deciduous tree like the oak - it looses its leaves. 

It seems that these trees have been here a long time. 
When they were first planted, it was unknown if they 
were male or female trees, so it was almost impossible to 
avoid the female trees and their little bombs of smell. 

It was perhaps the smell that was responsible for the 
actions of some students sometime during the 60's. These 
students attempted to destroy the Ginkgo trees by 
girdling them. However, as time has proven, they were 
unsuccessful in their attempts since the Ginkgo trees 
live on! 

The Ginkgos have mana^d to sustain themselves in a 
variety of ways from these attacks. One way is that the 
Cambium has, in some cases, remade some of the phloem 
which was removed by girdling. Another way is the buddy 
system that the trees have. Their roots have fused together 
thus sending sugar from a healthy tree to a sickly one. 
Still another way is through a fungus organism called 
Mycorrhizae that grows into the roots and moves sugar 
from the hardier plants to the ailing ones. But despite 
these methods, two of the Ginkgo trees which were 
attacked more vigorously may eventually die. These trees 
have provided' a living laboratory to show the effects of 

The fruits which the Ginkgo tree graciously provides 
are actually fleshy seeds. These seeds contain butyric 
acid which is the reason for the smell. 

Although during the fall the Ginkgo provide a con- 
stant challenge to avoid their seeds, they do provide some 
needed shade during the summer so they are not all bad 
all the time.

Have you ever entered the Krauskopf Library here at 
DVC, looked around at the multitude of resources avail- 
able for your use, spent a considerable amount of time 
searching the card catalog and then were unable to find 
the only book you needed on the shelves? Perhaps you 
thought someone else had checked it out or that it was 
still sitting on a return cart. After searching in vain, with 
the help of the librarian, the only conclusion was that it 
was removed by some light-fingered thief. 

Many suc!i cases as this have happened to many 
people who depend on the DVC library for their informa- 
tion, it was this reason, along with the appeals of students 
and faculty, that helped the Board of Trustees to finally 
take measures to stop the stealing, though the problem 
has been known for years. Perhaps they hoped that those 
who stole things would sometime need something that 
someone else had stolen and this would eventually put a 
halt to the problem. Something that rational is against 
human nature. Obviously it did not work and neither did 
the student-to-student plea in an article in last year's 
Collegian. There was no other alternative except a security 
system installed this year. 

Most people who have been to the library have en- 
countered the new system, which appears to be more like 
a turnstile in a downtown Philadelphia subway. Granted 
that the system is totally out of place in front of the 
double glass doors and the beautiful architecture of the 
building, but it is in its rough stages now and needs a bit 
more work. At least it is a start. 

Mrs. Shook, the head lite^arian, admits that the staff 
has kept track of the steady losses, though there was no 
way to really control it. The cost of t>ooks, as all college 
studerits who bought any should know, has gone up 
unbelievably, not to mention the amount of time spent 
on each book by the librarians, preparing them for the 
shelves. "New information and material is always coming 
out and we can't afford it if we have to keep spending 
money on replacing stolen books," said Mrs. Shook. She 
would also like to remind everyone that if they cannot 
find the materials they need, not to give up. Ask for help 
and if this library does not have it, they may be able to 
obtain it for you through the interlibrary loan program 
which connects our library to the many others in the 
county. Be sure to allow plenty of time so that you get 
the material when you need it, though. 

If you find now that you are inconvenienced by the 
turnstiles as you enter or exit the library, think of how 
inconvenienced you would be if the materials you needed 
were stolen. For those of you who Insist on "borrowing" 
materials without the use of your library card, we hope 
the new system is very inconvenient for you.

Despite the unfortunate deaths of sdccer co-captain 
Dale Page and goalkeeper Sam Jackson on Friday, 
October 26th, the Aggies went on to win their final home 
match of the season on homecoming weekend. They 
tackled powerful Drew University in an emotional game 
dedicated to the memory of their two teammates. 

The Aggies, wearing memorial black armbanas on their 
uniforms, opened the scoring in the first half with an 
unassisted goal blasted into the upper corner of the net by 
forward Vin Ziccardi. 

Drew retaliated early in the second half to tie the 
score 1-1. The Aggies kept up the pressure, however, 
continuously attacking the defense in one of their best 
performances of the season. Good defenslv* work by the 
Aggies held off the Drew attack. Halfway through the 
second period, forward Pete Johnson slipped a pass by a 
lone Drew defender to Striker Eric Cheromcka who easily 
beat the goalie and lifted the Aggies to a 2-1 victory. 

The win was a particularly significant one for Delaware 
Valley, since Drew battered the Aggies 10-Oin a contest 
last year. It was also a fitting victory in the memory of 
Dale Page and Sam Jackson, who will be sadly missed by 
their fellow players and students.

Our Harriers ran three meets the last two weeks and 
ended up with two wins and two losses. 


Saturday, October 1 3th, saw Del Val travel to Beth- 
lehem to take on Moravian. Jim "Dogbait" Parsons, led 
the way for the Del Val squad. The fleetfooted Parsons set 
a new course record, 26:46, knocking 0:14 off the 
previous best time. The Harriers bested Moravian 23-37, 
including seven of the top ten positions. The five-mile 
course saw Bruce Murphy finish fourth with a time of 
28:04; Matt Hengel was 5th (28:16); Rich "Stones" 
Weidman, 6th (28:34); Chip Cowher, 7th (28:34); Rich 
Weaver, 8th (28:45); and Craig Edgerton, 10th (29:09). 
Nice grouping guys! 


On Saturday, October 20th, our Harriers were to travel 
to Selinsgrove to take on the Indians of Susquehanna 
University. For a while it looked as If the squad would not 
leave the parking lot as someone had "misplaced" the 
keys for the van. After contemplating the problem, our 
Security Force bolted to their supercharged street 
machine and sped off to Bender-Milts Chevrolet. Well . . . 
we got new keys and soon found ourselves at Susque- 

Much to our surprise, and later delight, we were also 
to run against York College. The race soon began and 
unfortunately there was much pushing and shoving. After 
only fifty yards, Jim Parsons saw a familiar shoe gently 
glide by his head . . . HIS!! Running with an Achilles 
injury, Jim found it difficult to carry on and was forced 
to drop out after only three-quarters of a mili. 

This unfortunate incident turned what was to be a 
very close race into a rather one-sided Susquehanna 
victory, 21-35. The Harriers did not completely lose out, 
as we did defeat York 25-36. Our squad ran a good race, 
but without Parsons we did nr^t have the necessary foot- 
power. Matt Hengel was the first Del Val man to cross the 
line in the fifth position at 25:52. Rich Weidman was 8th, 
26:21; Bruce "Murph" Murphy, 9th (26:30); Chip 
Cowher, 10th (26:30); and Chuck Steel man, 13th (26:49) 
round out the scorers. The next five Harriers finished as 
follows: Joe Gilbert, 16th (27:30); Carl Pellington, 19th 
(27:49); Russ Rising, 23rd (28:32); Rich Steinman, 26th 
(29:27); and myself, 27th (31:40). 

On Wednesday, October 24th, our Harriers traveled to 
Kutztown State College. For the first time this season our 
squad suffered back-to-back losses. 

Jim Parsons was the top man, finishing the five-mile 
course in 26:58. The only other Harriers to make the top 
ten were Bruce Murphy, 4th (28:11); Chip Cowher, 8th 
(28:52) and Matt Hengel, 10th (29:35). Rounding out the 
Del Val squad were Rich Weidman, 11th (29:53); Chuck 
"Tripod" Steelman, 12th (30:03); Carl Pellington, 14th 
(30:17); |oe Gilbert, 16th (30:47); Craig "Edger" 
Edgerton, 17th (30:54); Rich Weaver, 18th (30:49); and 
Ed Kulp, 20th (34:05). 

NOTES: The Harriers compiled an 8-5 record, compared 
to last year's record of 7-8. Jim Parsons completed an 
undefeated season. Special thanks are extended to Dr. 
Miller and Chip Cowher's family, who made the Susque- 
hanna loss a little sweeter. 
Next Week: A Season In Review 


Many students have heard rumors regarding a lawsuit 
involving Delaware Valley Colle^, Doylestown Township, 
Sunny Beverages, and the Doylestown Maennerchor 
Society. It has even come to the poiht where friends of 
DVC students who attend other colleges in Pennsylvania 
have been inquiring about it since it has had a definite 
effect on alcohol policies at many colleges In Pennsylvania 
as well as throughout the eastern United States. In order 
to bring our student body up to date on the situation, 
Mr. Tasker was asked to set the record straight According 
to Mr. Tasker the facts of the law suit are as follows. 

The sophomore class (Class of 1977) held a cla» 
picnic in April of 1975 at the Maennerchor Society picnic 
grove in Doylestown. When the picnic was being planned, 
the class officers arranged for the purchase of six kegs of 
beer, even though their faculty advisor advised them that 
this was not permitted, and in fact was unaware that they 
were doing this. The College Student Handbook at that 
time pointed out the Pennsylvania state law which set the 
legal age of 21 for buying, consuming or possessing liquor 
or beer, and also stated the College regulation prohibiting 
the use or possession of alcohol on the campus or at off- 
campus college-sponsored affairs. In any event, the picnic 
took place as planned and during that afternoon, an open 
bar was set up, and members of the class served as bar- 
tenders. Approximately ISO students were in attendance; 
however, no members of the College faculty or adminis- 
tration vrare present at the affair. 

When the picnic was over, three sophomores, all 19 
years of age at the time, were returning to the campus 
when they were involved in a car accident. While passing 
through an intersection of a Doylestown street commonly 
referred to as "Dip Street", the driver lost control of the 
car, causing it to collide with a parked car. One passenger, 
Donald Bradshaw, incurred a cervical fracture of the spine 
and is to this day paralyzed from the neck down. 

Approximately a year after the accident, the College 
learned that the injured student and his parents were 
bringing suit against the College (for negligence), Doyles- 
town Township (for poor maintenance of roads), Sunny 
Beverages (selling to minors), the Maennerchor (permitting 
minors to drink on their property) and the driver of the 
car (student, Bruce Rawlings). 

The trial took place in Federal Court (due to diversity 
of citizenship) in May, 1978, and the student and his 
parents won the case. In the first phase of the trial, the 
jury found the College and the other defendants liable, 
and in the trial on the issue of damages awarded the 
student 1.2 million dollars in compensatory damages. 

The College will be appealing this decision in the near 
future before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third 
Circuit and the outcome of this appeal will have a re- 
sounding effect on the alcohol policies of not only 
Pennsylvania colleges, but colleges throughout the 
country. The American Council on Education and the 
Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Universities has 
filed an amicus brief, supporting Delaware Valley College. 
This brief asserts that the major issues in the case pertain- 
ing to the College are (1) whether the duty of the College 
to supervise its students extends to a college "related", 
social activity held off the College premises where 
intoxicating beverages are served; (2) whether the lower 
court erred in defining the duty of care owed by the 
College on the facts of the case; and (3) whether there was 
sufficient evidence to support the jury's imposition of 
liability upon the College. 

According to Mr. Tasker the decision of the court has 
generated much comment among college and university 
administrators concerning the use of alcoholic beverages 
on campus. If this decision is upheld by the Court of 
Appeals, many colleges will take a very close look at their 
alcohol policies, since there is much concern about 
liability on the part of the institution. "I feel this decision 
was extremely unfair and it leads people to believe that 
the College was responsible for setting up the picnic and 
encouraging students to participate. "Nothing could be 
further from the truth," said Tasker. "If they can hold us 
responsible for an event such as this which was held off- 
campus and the resulting accident, It makes you wonder 
how far the courts will go in placing responsibility on an 
Institution for the actions of its students."

On sunny summer days, if you're thinking of seeing 
a key point, such as New Hope or Peddler's Village, do so 
only if you enjoy sitting In a 3-mile long line traveling 
behind an out-of-state driver at 35 miles an hour down a 
main highway. You're then confronted by desperate 
drivers and short traffic lights, a combination that often 
results in a crushed fender or a smashed headlight. 

If you think that you can avoid this whole mess by 
going down a back road, forget it! Usually by 6 a.m. you 
can expect to meet a small convoy of tractor trailers. 
These men generally control the road; i.e., tdeir lane and 
half of yours. You can meet these trucks when they are in 
one of two conditions- empty and roaring down the road 
at 70 miles per hour to beat the next truck to the quarry; 
or full, droning along at half the speed limit. 

Did you ever wonder about the men who join a 
volunteer fire company? Well, in Bucks County, if you're 
lucky enough to be on the road when the whistle blows, 
you'll be able to stop wondering. One moment you may 
be driving along, all alone on some nice, narrow road, and 
the next you'll be confronted by a speeding car or truck 
with blue lights flashing. It seems as though every way 
you turn, vehicles are converging on you! These firemen, 
although fairly good drivers, demand respect. Try not to 
worry about them too much though. (Save some of the 
worry for yourself.) Passing on hills, around curves and 
across double yellow lines with oncoming trafflc is ho- 
hum life. It is courteous (and wise?) to allow these men 
to pass easily since they are protecting you and your 

One classic problem faced is the local redneck. If you 
don't meet him while he's responding to a fire call, he 
may be recognized by the beat-up 4-wheel drive or '58 
Chevy pickup he's driving. He's a dangerous man to follow 
close behind since he habitually chews tobacco and spits 
out the window, leaving brown streaks on the side of his 
truck and brown splats on the front of your car. He also 
feels that he owns the road and if he feels you're intrud- 
ing, he'll let you know either with words or gestures. 

Congratulations! You've survived out-of-state drivers, 
farmers, truckers, traffic, fires and locals. Now sit back 
and relax and look at the sights and . . . wham! Sorry, I 
forgot to mention the deer that jumped out of the woods 
in front of your car, or the tree that jumped out in front 
of your car when you svyerved to miss the rabbit that 
jumped out in front of the car. 

Oh, well, the front end needed aligning anyway. It will 
make the car easier to drive when you take it out this 

Have a nice drive! 


To the Collegian: 

Delaware Valley College hosted the 1979 Northeast 
Regional Intercollegiate Soil Judging Contest on Saturday, 
October 13, 1979. This was the second time our College 
served as host to a regional contest, the first one being 
held in the fall of 1972. 

A total of 74 students participated in the contest, 
representing seven universities and colleges - namely, 
Cornell, Maine, Maryland, Penn Sute, Rhode Island, 
Rutgers and Delaware Valley College. 

The Soil Judging Team of Delaware Valley College 
placed second; Penn State placed first. What is also quite 
significant is that five DVC students placed among the 
first ten high-scoring individuals, an unusual feat for any 
team. Placing among the first ten were Jeff Miller, 
fourth highest; Glenn Ayers, seventh; Marian Payer, 
eighth; Jeff Novak, ninth; and Dianne Lake, tenth. 

By placing second, the Delaware Valley College team 
will represent the Northeastern Region to the National 
Soil Judging Contest to be held in April, 1980, at 
Pennsylvania Sute University together with the University 
of Maryland. 

Dr. Palkovics, the coach of the DVC team, Mr. 
Hepner who assisted him especially during the week 
preceding the contest, and the members of the DVC 
team should be congratulated and commended for a job 
well done and for representing our College with such dis- 
tinction in a very tough contest in which they were 
competing against some of the best Soil Judging teams 
in the country.

Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now is here. The film, a third 
in a series of Vietnam films (Coming Home and The Deer 
Hunter are the other two) Is possibly the most spectacular 
film event of the decade. Whereas, Coming Home and The 
Deer Hunter deal with the effect that the Vietnam war 
had on United States civilians, Apocalypse Now is about 
what happened in Vietnam. The film it loosely based on 
Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Sir James Frazer's 
The Golden Bou^. Although Marlon Brando has top 
billing, it is Martin Sheen's journey up the river to meet 
Brando that is the central base of the film. Martin Sheen 
gives a brilliant performance as Captain Willard. Marlon 
Brando's performance of Col. Kurtz, ttie renegade Ameri- 
can colonel, is performed with the actor's usual imagiru- 
tive creativity. It is, however, Robert Duvall, as the 
lunatic Colonel Kilgore, whose performance clearly places' 
this actor in the front running competition for an Acad- 
emy Award performance. The film is also supported 
rather well by Michael Herr's narration and by an imagina- 
tive musical score by Carmine Coppola and Francis 

Though Apocalypse Now is clearly a landmark film, 
let me caution those who wish to see the film as a meara 
of entertainment. For the most part, there are few comk 
overtones in this film and the audience will find It difficult 
to yield any passion to the characters as they did in 
Coming Home or The Deer Hunter. If, however, you wish 
to see one of the most ingenious American films ever 
produced, then do see Apocalypse Now.

Dr. Julian Prundeanu, Chairman of the Agronomy 
Department, reports that the College hosted the 1979 
Northeast Regional Soil judging contest recently. There 
were seven universities and colleges represented including 
Cornell, Maine, Maryland, Penn State, Rhode Island, 
Rutgers and Delaware Valley College. A total of seventy- 
four students participated in the contest. 

The Delaware Valley College Soil Judging team 
finished ahead of all other teams with the exception of 
Penn State. Five of its members placed among the ten 
highest scoring individuals. 

The DVC team was coached by Dr. William Palkovics, 
Assistant Professor of Agronomy who was assisted by 
Larry Hepner, Instructor in Agronomy. 

By placing second, Delaware Valley will be one of the 
two teams which will represent the Northeastern Region 
to the National Soil Judging Contest to be held in April, 
1980, at Pennsylvania State University.

Homecoming, 8 A.M. Saturday, October 27th, reports 
began pouring in about a giant rat in Doylestown. Upon 
investigation it was discovered that the "giant rat" was 
actually the prize-winning Spirit Car of the new Labor- 
atory Animal Science Club. With the aid of practical 
projects, guest speakers and educational trips this organ- 
ization hopes to spark interest and increase knowledge in 
the field of Laboratory Animal Science and related aspects 
of the small animal business. In addition to the regular 
club meetings, usually on the second and fourth Tuesdays 
of each month at 4:15 in Ag 103, transportation is 
provided for members who wish to attend DVB AALAS 
(Delaware Valley Branch American Association for 
Laboratory Animal Science) meetings which are usually 
held on the second Wednesda,y of each month. At these 
meetings members have an opportunity to meet influen- 
tial people already established in the field. 

Any student of DVC who is interested in Laboratory 
Animal Science is encouraged to join. Signs will be posted 
before each meeting.

Many persons say that, "It is a waste of time to vote 
since one politician is as bad as another, why bother?" It 
is pretty easy to see why they feel that way, in view of 
the many stories we hear or read of, where elected 
officials use the power of their position for their own 
advantage. Certainly, dishonesty does happen; but let us 
stop and think a minute. Is it not true that when crooked- 
ness is exposed, the politician is removed and punished? 
Perhaps the punishment does not seem severe enough, 
especially when we think of Nixon and his associates who 
in general went free. They are now making a fortune 
selling their books! 

Actually, however, if we give the matter some thought, 
we will realize that a sense of outrage and moral indigna- 
tion is alive in our society. Indeed, we now expect, even 
demand, a high standard of honesty from our elected 
officials. The public is aroused and watchful of wrong- 
doing. The press has been especially active since Watergate 
in checking on and publishing what our elected officials 
are doing. Furthermore, recent laws have forced disclosure 
of personal holdings and interests so that we can better 
check on the motivation for various proposals of our 
elected officials. In actual fact, a greater climate of public 
responsibility now exists than perhaps even before. For 
these reasons, I hope you voted on election day. If you 
stayed home and did not vote, you can only bUme 
yourself for what may come in the future. 


David Syrotiak's National Marionette Theatre will be 
held at the College on Wednesday, November 14, 1979,

The National Marionette Theatre is best known for its 
productions which are especially created for adult 
audiences. (Not recommended for children under twelve 
years of age.) 

Puppetry is a synthesis of the arts; sculpture, design, 
music, mime, dance and theatre, and the puppet itself . . .

November 3, 1979, was a happy day for Coach Al 
Wilson and the Delaware Valley Aggies as they mounted 
their fifth win this year coming from a 14-0 deficit to 
beat Albright College 16-14. The victory rewarded the 
Aggies with their first winning season in six years. In 
addition, four records were set this year by two individual 
players. Senior Bill Mullen broke the record for most 
touchdowns and points in one season with 10 and 60, 
respectively. Freshman Gary Myers kicked a record five 
successful field goals with one of 41 yards being the 
longest in Aggie history this year. 

Also doing a superb job this year was the Aggie 
defense. Interceptions and fumble recoveries were the key 
to some Aggie victories. They only allowed a stingy twelve 
points per game average. That is an excellent statistic 
when one considers that the defense was on the field most 
of the time and survived with a minimal amount of rest. 
Yes, this season's success must be credited to a vastly 
improved defense. 

With a little offense next year, Del Val can be a 
contender in the MAC playoffs. 

Congratulations on a good year, Aggies!

The women's field hockey team of Delaware Valley 
College ended their season on a winning note by defeating 
Drew University 6-0, on Monday, October 29, in Doyles- 
town, PA. The win boosted the Aggie record to 5-5, their 
best record since hockey received varsity status six years 

Outsunding for the Lady Aggies In their finale was the 
entire forward line and right halfback Linda Treese. 
Treese receWed the "outsUnding player award" for her 
defensive consistency. She also scored two goals. One 
goal was off a penalty suoke; the second followed 
minutes later when she intercepted a Drew pass and drove 
the ball from the edge of the striking circle. 

Sue Ann Leed Ullied two goals also, while Breand 
Wolfe and Donna Cassano rounded out the scoring by 
tallying one each. 

Seasonal sutistics show the Lady Aggies outshot their 
opponents 271-121, and they outscored their opponents 
26-91 Leading the Lady Aggies offensively was Brenda 
Wolfe, Perkasie, PA. Wolfe averaged 6 shots per game and 
scored 7 goals. Sue Ann Leed, a Cocalico High School 
graduate, scored 5 goals on the season as did teammate 
Karen Rogers, Norristown, PA. 

Defensively the Lady Aggies were led by the consistent 
play of Bernie Romano, center halfback from Bristol, PA. 
Gail Fulcoly, a senior from Central Bucks West, also aided 
the defensive unit. Freshman Linda Treese, Abington, PA 
was the most improved player (MtP) overall. The Aggies 
will be looking for leadership from Treese in the future. 

The Lady Aggies open their 1980 season at Muhlen- 
berg College, Allentown, PA on September 26!! 



The regular intramural football season ended in a 
three-way tie for first place. Finishing with identical 8-1 
records were Crabs, State Penn and High Flyers. 

Rounding out the playoff entrees were EMO, 6-3; 
Lancers, 5-4, 86'ers, 3-7. 

The road to the finals found State Penn defeating the 
86'ers, only to lose to the Crabs who became one of the 
finalists. EMO had to defeat the Lancers and the High 
Flyers to gain a shot at the title game. EMO made a 
Cinderella-type try to win the DVC Intramural Football 
Championship game played November 6th. EMO battled 
the Crabs in a game which settled down to a defensive 
battle during the second half. With the score 1 2-7, in favor 
of EMO, the Crabs turned a blocked punt into a touch- 
down and held on for a 14-12 victory. The game, played 
before a large crowd on the intramural field, was a fitting 
end to a season which saw many good contests played by 
the students and who reached briefly for that piece of 

Congratulations to the Crabs and EMO for a fine game 
and also to Mr. Wolfgand for a well-organized intramural 
football season.

Penrose Hallowell, Pennsylvania Secretary of Agricul- 
ture, spoke to the students of Delaware Valley College on 
November 5, 1979. Prior to his speech, Mr. Hallowell met 
with the officers of the Dairy Society who sponsored his 
visit here. 

Mr. Hallowell, who owns a farm ten miles north of 
DVC, spoke on the future of agriculture. He divided the 
future into four areas he felt agriculture would be most 
concerned with. After his speech, Mr. Hallowell had a 
question and answer period. A large group turned out to 
listen to Mr. Hallowell.

• It comes in three waves a year - September as 
school begins, mid-winter, and in spring. 

• More colds begin on Monday than any other day. 

• It is the most prevalent infectious disease among 
people of all ages. 

• Antibiotics have no effect on the cold. A cold is 
caused by a virus. Antibiotics affect bacteria. 

The common cold is caused by a virus invading the 
upper respiratory passages. There are more than 100 
viruses that can cause the cold. This great number of 
viruses makes it impossible to develop a vaccine effective 
against them all. The rhinovirus is by far the major cause 
of colds. 

The belief that the cold is caused by being overheated, 
being in a draft, getting wet feet, or feeling "run-down" is 
very popular but not well founded in fact. The strongest 
evidence shows that the cold is caught from another 
person either directly or indirectly. 

Sneezes or coughs from cold sufferers fill the air with 
cold viruses. These viruses find their way to other unsus- 
pecting victims. Also, a cold virus can literally be picked 
up "by hand." As an infected person covers his sneeze or 
blows his nose with a tissue, he transfers the invisible 
rhinovirus to his hand. He may next transfer the virus to 
the hand of a healthy recipient. Or, he may transfer the 
virus to intermediary surfaces, such as a light switch, a 
water tap, or a dollar bill. An uninfected person touches 
these surfaces and picks up the lively viruses and unknow- 
ingly transfers the viruses by hand toward his face and 
susceptible nose and throat membranes. 

The incubation period is only 18 to 48 hours. Symp- 
toms include dry scratchy throat, stuffy nose, and head- 
aches. The viruses literally take over and alter the nature 
of the cell. Other symptoms include watery eyes, lowered 
temperature, aches, pains and overall lethargy. 

The standard prescription is still aspirin, fluids and 
rest. Aspirin, in any form, lowers fever and lessens general 
aches and pains. Fluids serve to bring up accumulated 
lung secretions, to insure the body gets its necessary fluid 
intake, and to replace sweat loss due to fever. Rest is the 
logical response to the fatigue and weakness which accom- 
pany the infection. 

Some studies show Vitamin C may be beneficial in 
reducing the severity of colds, but the FDA says substan- 
tive proof does not exist. High doses of Vitamin C can 
contribute to kidney stones, severe diarrhea and miscalcu- 
lations in diabetes testing. 

Beware of the uncommon cold: temperature above 
100 F, undue level of malaise, loss of appetite, tachy- 
cardia (abnormally fast heart beat), excessive length of 
cold, chest pain, or earaches.

Hallowe'en night was more like a botany eve for him 
this year; at least it was until about midnight. Faced with 
pages of megasporophytes and parenchyma, he knew that 
this night would be devoted to sex in the plant world. 
Hallowe'en, after all, was for grimy egg-throwing brats 
and nostalgic overgrown kids. As the evening wore on, 
though, exotic sounds meandered in and out of his 
swimming mind. He soon came to the conclusion that on 
this night only a male piece of seaweed could be excited 
by the material before him. 

Then, as by some unseen force, he was lifted from his 
desk and pushed toward and out of the door. He could 
not believe what was before him - masses of grown 
people standing In line for a so-called haunted hall! His 
sense of maturity was offended. Stones tickets one stood 
in line for. Gas one stood in line for; but this? "I must be 
in a dream world," he thought. Perhaps he was, for the 
student could feel invisible icy fingers drawing his unwill- 
ing body forward. His mind wandered until he passed 
through the heavy wooden doors of the dark hall, and 
then horror and unreality befell him. 

With a group of fellow victims, he stumbled into a 
cemetery p>ervaded with the moaning of tortured spirits 
crying in endless agony. He tripped momentarily in a pile 
of deep, rustling leaves and found himself facing several 
gray, ominous tombstones. He dared to look at the worn 
engravings. Stan Sitarski! The man who had once person- 
ally confiscated his party paraphernalia on a lively Friday 
night before finals. Vel's Vandals! The organization which 
had sent his team to the cellar of the intramural floor 
hockey league. Perhaps this haunted hall wasn't so bad 
after all. 

So he thought, until clammy flesh reached up from 
the earth and grasped his legs, pleading him to become the 
permanent gravemate of some dripping corpse. He broke 
free and was whisked past the forbidding image of satan, 
past a brutal execution by guillotine, and down an inky, 
ghoul-infested corridor. 

He thought hiv situation could only improve as he 
bounced and floated upward (the only direction of 
interest to a person in his situation) but the pearly gates 
never arrived. Instead he was forced to crawl through a 
moving sea of screaming, bleeding corpses. 

The head of a cow suddenly sat rotting at his side, and 
for a moment he thought he had escaped to the cafeteria. 
Again he was wrong. A sadistic ogre appeared, laughing 
brutally as he flogged his shrieking, ragged prisoner. It 
seemed these chambers of hell would never end. 

He was then forced onward through a cramped tunnel, 
only to be confronted by a flock of ghouls who were 
joyfully preparing for a live human dissection. Panic 
overtook him. He had to escape. How ironic — he thought 
— a college student desperate for a dose of reality. It was 
not to come yet. A sword-yielding Samuri chased him 
even farther, straight into the clutches of a wheezing 
fiend named Igor who was most anxious to find a play- 
mate for his writhing boa constrictor. After slipping by 
Igor, he immersed himself in a wall of wet, electrically 
shocked sheets, and then he finally emerged into open air 
and safety. Hallowe'en was over, and not a moment too

To: The Editor 

On Monday, November 5, the Dairy Society hosted 
Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture Penrose Hallowell 
at an open meeting held in Mandell Auditorium. Those of 
you who were not able to attend missed a rare oppor- 
tunity to exchange ideas about agriculture and its future 
in Pennsylvania with the man most directly responsible 
for shaping that future. Following brief remarks highlight- 
ing some of the major agricultural issues facing the 
industry. Secretary Hallowell opened the meeting to a 
question-and-answer forum in which the members of the 
audience were invited to share their ideas with him. 

The purpose of my writing is this: I was tremendously 
impressed with the breadth and depth of the grasp of 
agriculture displayed by the students who participated in 
the exchange with the Secretary. (I believe he was likewise 
impressed!) The students, most of them animal science 
majors, showed that they are extremely cognizant of the 
future of agriculture in this area and demonstrated that 
they are thinking about solutions to the problems in- 
volved. To some extent that must reflect favorably on the 
relevance of our animal science programs. Even more to 
the point, it must reflect on the students themselves - 
their sense of purpose and the maturity with which they 
are preparing for their futures. To all of those who 
participated I offer sincere salutations for a job well done!

With the close of the fall sports season, the teams at 
Delaware Valley College have shown marked Improve- 
ment. Leading the way was football under fourth-year 
head coach Al Wilson. The football Awies posted a 5-4 
record to give the school its best record m six years. Last 
season the Aggies were close in a lot of games but ended 
with a 1-8 record. This year their experience paid off. 
Coach Wilson had mixed emotions with the loss of 
fourteen seniors who paid their dues to the development 
of the program but expectation from the crop of under- 
classmen who gained valuable experience this past year. 

Another sport which has taken great strides is soccer. 
Second-year head coach Joe Soder turned a 1-9-1 team 
around to post a 6-7 record, the best in the school's short 
history in soccer. Coach Soder feels confident that with 
his returning lettermen next year can be even better. 

The cross country team under head coach Bob 
Berthold turned in an 8-5 record and an eleventh place in 
the MAC Championship meet. Last year the Harriers 
posted a 7-8 record and the same eleventh place finish. 

In the women's department, the field hockey team 
under Coach Peggy Vellner posted a .500 season with a 
5-5 overall record and 2-2 in the MAC. Although the 
Lady Aggies did not make the playoffs, their record was 
better and shows improvement. The only other sport was 
women's volleyball. The team, in its first year of existence 
under Coach Diane Swartz, posted a 0-10 record. Like the 
other sports, the volleyball team needs some experience 
to become competitive. A crop of returning players and 
the experience of one year of varsity competition fore- 
shadows improvement for next year. 

A busy winter schedule started with the Aggies parti-

The Delaware Valley College women's volleyball team 
fell upon some difficult times as they wrapped up. their 
first varsity season 0-1 0. 

Coach Oiane Swartz praised the performances of Holly 
Funk, a junior, as the most consistent player overall. In 
four of the ten games. Funk recorded a one hundred 
percent serving efficiency, and, for the season had 24 ace 
spikes, the second highest on the team. 

Barbara Gregory, a senior, led the team in spikes with 
29. Karen Smith finished third in the spiking category 
with 16. 

The Lady Aggies are a young team and will be looking 
to Funk for future leadership. Also, sophomores Susan 
Capon and Gail Garthwaite added defensive consistency 
for the Aggies. 




"If we can pick up where we left off last year we 
should be improved." That's the statement from second- 
year head coach, Les Lombard!. Last year the Aggie 
Cagers posted an 11-14 record, the most wins in eight 
years and a second half winning spree. Lombard! hinges 
his hopes this season on six returning lettermen. 

Leading the lettermen in 1979-80 will be senior 
co-captain Kenny Mitchell. The 6'3" swingman, an All 
E.C.A.C. and 1,000 Point Club Member, averaged 17.9 
points per game with a 59% field goal accuracy and was 
the team's leading rebounder. The other co-captain is 6'4" 
senior Mark Werkiser. Last season Mark played both guard 
and forward, averaged 9.5 points per game and was the 
team's fourth leading rebounder. Mark, currently nursing 
an injury, adds both size and ball handling to the starting 

The Aggies will have an abundance of guards. Sopho- 
more Mark Tymes, a freshman starter and letter winner 
last year, will direct the offense from the point guard 
position. Mark averaged 5 points per game but also gave 
out 97 assists. Newcomer Dale Lawrence, an outside 
scoring threat, will back up Mark at the point. Tom 
Robinson is another 6'3" swingman who averaged 4.5 
points per game. A letterwinner, Tom earned respect for 

his improved defense and outside shooting ability. Added 
to the crop of guards is 6'2" freshman Don Rogge. 

The big problem this year for the Aggies will be re- 
bounding. Lombard! has conceded that he has no center 
and will use basically two forwards and three guards. Last 
year's Most Improved Player, 6'3" junior Tom Kehoe, 
who averaged 1 1.8 points per game and 3.7 rebounds will 
be a main figure in the battle of the boards. Another 
junior letterman, Bill Walter, a 6'5'' forward, adds his 1 2.3 
points per game and 8.4 rebounds per game to the small 
front line. Senior Bill Stanley, a 6'4" leaper, should add 
rebounding and a defensive dimension. Up from last 
year's junior varsity, junior Lyn Matthews can add some 
muscle for the boardmen. The only other freshman on 
the eleven-man squad, Gerry Lutz, is a 6'5" rel)ounder 
and scorer. 

Lombard! contends that the Aggies will have to hustle 
and improve on defense to break into a winning season. 
Last year the Aggies averaged over 80 points per game and 
they were rnvolved in a lot of close games. "Our goal for 
the first year was to be competitive and I feel we achieved 
that." noted the coach. "If we can pick up where wc left 
off last year we should be improved."

The recent events in the country of Iran have shocked and 
infuriated many Americans. The takeover of the United 
States Embassy by Iranian students is a deplorable act of 
terrorism. Now these same self-styled revolutionaries have 
decided to try some 50 or more Americans for spying. This 
situation has lead to a number of protests and even rioting. 

just how did something like this happen in the first place? 
it all started with the revolution against Iran's Monarch, the 
Shah. This revolution has brought to power the Ayatollah 
KhomeJTtl - a fanatical Muslim leader. This was not what 
lead directly to the takeover of the U.S. Embassy, however. 
The Iranian students took our Embassy because the Shah 
was allowed into the U.S. for medical treatment of his 
advanced cancer. The students now want him back in Iran 
for trial and they refuse to release the innocent Americans 
until we give up the Shah. 

The easiest solution to this problem would be to give in 
to these demands. This, however, would not be the right 
thing to do! We, the United States, should never and can 
never give in to terrorism of this kind or any kind. To give 
in to this group of fanatical students would have catastrophic 
effects on U.S. foreign policy. To give in to a group of 
radicals such as the Iranian students would be a dishonor 
to America and all her citizens. No American would be safe 
outside of our own borders. 

Therefore, the Shah must stay in this country until his 
medical problems are solved and we must not back down. 
The President must make it clear to Khomeini that we will 
never bargain one man's life for another's. 

by Tom Umrath 

Despite the gloom and frustration associated with the situation in Iran, there is an overshadowed and overlooked bright 
side to the conflict. Hidden by all the outrage and rhetoric is the fact that through a common goal, the citizens of the United 
States seem to be pulling together with new-found patriotism. The political kick in the face executed by the Ayatollah 
Khomeini and his fanatical regime, combined with the weak response by the Carter administration, have forced out dormant 
feelings of pride and confidence in America. The people of the U.S. are now unified with a sense of common purpose - 
making their country respectable again on the world scene. The people are tired of taking abuse from insignificant nations, 
many of whom their tax dollars help to support. It is quite obvious what the citizens of America want - the respect their 
nation deserves. Americans are becoming unified, and are looking for the government to handle Iran in a manner that will 
bring the U.S. pride and dignity. Hopefully this spirit will continue. 


An art exhibit of recent watercolors by Joanna 
Krasnansky is being held in the Library until December 18th, 

The theme of the exhibit will be Bucks County in Review. 
Cognizant of the unique flavor offered by Bucks County, 
Joanna's subjects originate from our rich past — farmland 
scenes, stone farmhouses, barns, meeting houses, mills and 
the like. She instills realism in her watercolors, with texture 
and color her primary concerns. 

As a watercolorist, Joanna is basically self-taught. A 
member of the Philadelphia Watercolor Club, Art Alliance 
of Bucks County and the Levittown Artists Association, 
her paintings are on display year round at the Yard's 
Upstairs Gallery in Peddlers Village. She has exhibited in 
New York at the National Academy's A.W.S. exhibit and at 
the National Arts Club. She exhibits in Philadelphia's 
Rittenhouse Square Art Annual where she won the Water- 
color Award for 1979. An active exhibitor in Bucks County, 
she exhibits at Phillips Mill, Yardley Art Association annuals, 
the Arts Alliances exhibits, and many more. Bensalem 
Township has purchased a number of her watercolors which 
are on display in their township building, and 24 of her 
drawings of historical buildings and items were printed in a 
bicentennial book published by the Bensalem Historical 
Society in 1976. She has her studio in Cornwells Heights. 



Review by Steve Saphos Rating **** 

Starring: Malcolm McDowell, David Warner and Mary 

Directed by: Nicholas Meyer PG 

"Imagine, a scientific genius named H.G. Wells pursuing 
a criminal mastermind named Jack the Ripper through time 

This is the slogan of Nicholas Meyer's film. Time After 
Time, one of the most amusing and entertaining films of the 
year. Time After Time serves as the directorial debut for 
Nicholas Meyer, whose only previous film credit is the 
screenplay for Herbert Ross' 1977 film. The Severt Percent 
Solution, a film that features Sherlock Holmes and Dr. 
Watson matching wits with a cocaine addicted Sigmund 

The film's premise begins with Jack the Ripper, fresh 
from another brutal killing, escaping the police through the 
use of H.G. Wells' latest invention, a time machine. Wells, 
upon hearing of Jack the Ripper's method of escape, 
immediately sets out after him via the time machine. Thus, 
a nineteenth century scientist and psychotic killer find 
themselves in pursuit of one another in twentieth century 
modern-day San Francisco, California. 

Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) and David 
Warner (The Omen) handle their portrayal of H.G. Wells and 
Jack the Ripper, respectively, quite well. Mary Steenburgen's 
(Coin' South) performance as a confused native Californian 
who gets mixed in with the pursuit, ties the film together 

To sum it all up, Time After Time is a lot of fun. It is 
one of the few films released lately that successfully 
combines the elements of suspense, comedy, and romance 
toother in one package. Therefore, it is this reviewer's 
suggestion that you try to find the time to see Time After 


Delaware Valley College will present original members 
of the smash Broadway hit Beatlemania, live and in concert 
on Saturday, December 8th, 1979, beginning at 8:00 P.M. 

This national touring group will bring to the stage :he 
sounds and sights of John, Paul, George and Ringo in The 
Magic of the Beatles. 

The performance will be held In the James Work 
Gymnasium. The presentation will include slides of the 60's, 
posters, lighting and live stage performances of the early 
Beatles sounds as well as the Sgt. Pepper era. 

This program will bring back memories to those who 
grew up with the Beatles; and the recreation of the live 
energy that the Beatles had will serve as a true experience 
for those too young to remember the Beatles.

Thanks, students, faculty, and whoever else you are 
who helped pick up the pieces after Homecoming. It has 
been noted that Homecoming cleanup normally takes three 
days, but this year not even one day was needed to de-debris 
the campus. 





To: The Editor 

I am a concerned citizen and I believe that the recent 
installation of the two stop signs on Alumni Lane will not 
be enough to halt the large number of accidents which 
occur in this area. Throughout this year and last year the 
number of deaths and injuries which have taken place at 
this major intersection are overwhelming. After all, the 
cars which come out of the doors of the famous James Work 
Gymnasium are uncountable. 

This situation must be rectified and I believe that a 
traffic light and large speed bumps should be installed at 
this major intersection to remedy the situation. The speed 
bumps could even be constructed by landscape design 
students. A full-time traffic cop (preferably a member of 
the Dream Police) would also prove effective in this loca-

The women "cagers," who have been practicing since 
Hallowe'en night, open their 1979-80 campaign on Thursday, 
December 6th at 7:00 P.M. They will host the "Terrors" of 
Western Maryland. 

Leading the Lady Hoopers will be senior co-captains 
)oyce Newswanger and Donna Kaledinskas. Newswanger is 
presently the second leading scorer in the school's history 
and needs only 153 total points to surpass the school record 
of 479 held by Janice Kirk, a 1978 graduate. Newswanger, a 
native of Pine Grove, Pa., is the quarterback for the Lady 

Kaledinskas will be the starting center for the Aggies. Her 
major contribution to the team has been that of rebounding 
and defense. Donna averages 7.2 points per game and has 
scored a career total of 145 points. 

The other three starters are Brenda Wolfe, Patti Rissinger, 
and Marcia Werner. Wolfe led the team in scoring last year 
with 177 points. She is the third leading scorer in Aggie 
history. Rissinger, a ulented sophomore from Sacramento, 
Pennsylvania, contributed 134 to the Aggie cause a year ago. 
Coach Vellner Js counting on Rissinger to score more for the 
Aggies this season, and she hopes Rissinger's one year 
experience will take some pressure off Newswanger. Werner, 
a freshman standout from Reading, Pennsylvania, has earned 
the other starting spot as a guard. 

Aggie reserves include letter winners: Diane Windholz, 
Donna Cassano, and Mary Ann Horst. Transfer Diane Bradley 
will be joining the force in January to round out the Aggie 
team. , 

The Lady Aggies are a hard-working, dedicated group of 
women who deserve your support. This year's team has the 
most talent an Aggie Hoop team has ever had. They will be 
very competitive in the league, and they look to you, the 
student body, for support. 

The team cordially invites you to all home games, and 
they hope to see you at the home opener December 6th! 


Senior Bill Mullen, who culminated an exciting college 
career by breaking two school records in his last game, was 
named to the 1979 Northern Division All-Star Squad in the 
Middle Atlantic Conference. Bill set the school record at ten 
for touchdowns in one season and 60 points, the most in one 
season. Because of an injury in his freshman year which kept 
him out for the entire season, Bill fell short of the school's 
rushing record. He carried 147 times this year for 481 net 
yards and 3.3 yards per carry average. 

joining Bill on the All-Star Offensive Team as Honorable 
Mention were juniors Phil Boob and Gary Walters. Phil, a 
tight end, had 7 receptions for 190 yards but, most import- 
antly, two touchdowns. Gary, an offensive, was a statisti- 
cal leader on the offensive line and will return next year. 

Defensively, the Aggies placed three players on the 
Honorable Mention Defensive Unit - Senior Co-Captain 
Bruce Shickora, one of Coach Wilson's first recruits who led 
the defensive sutistical battle from the defensive end for the 
last two seasons. Another defensive lineman, junior Chuck 
Alpuche, made Honorable Mention at the defensive Uckle 
position. In the defensive secondary, senior Keith Sipple, who 
had six interceptions and 107 yards, scored one touchdown 
and set up two other scores. 

Mullen and his five teammates were instrumental in 
leading the Aggies to a 5-4 season. The fact that three will be 
returning next season makes things look good for Coach 
Al Wilson and his Aggies..

On Wednesday, November 14, 1979, David Syrotjak and 
his National Marionette Theater visited Delaware Valley 
College. Mr. Syrotiak is the founder of the National 
Marionette Theater. He performs a one-man show that runs 
approximately two hours. He does from 150-200 shows a 
year. The Theater is run from a totally portable setup. This 
enables him to go anywhere with no problems. When he 
travels about he has no tour route. 

Mr, Syrotiak has been working with marionettes for about 
27 years. He has traveled all around Europe, South America, 
Canada, and the United States. He first became interested 
in working with marionettes when he saw a show in elemen- 
tary school. However, his marionette shows are specifically 
created for adults. Most people are unaware of this, but the 
people who attended his performance discovered this and 
were pleased by it. Although only a small crowd turned out 
for his performance, he was warmly received by them.

Delaware Valley Campus Radio Station has been improv- 
ing and progressing at a tremendous pace this year. Station 
Manager David Geyer is pleased with the performance of his 
members and the work that is being done. The station now 
consists of 24 D.J.'s, eight of whom were members last 
year, and the other 16 were recruited during the freshman 
club orientation night. 

During the first meeting of the semester the new recruits 
were trained by the D.J.'s from the previous year. They 
have been working well with each other and have made the 
radio station a success. Freshmen Raychel Stein and Leslie 
Scheffier began their membership by painting the walls in 
the station. Technicians Bob Parambo ("Wolf") and Jim 
Galley ("Sharky") have fully reconstructed the Berkowitz 
transmitter and are responsible for the music in the David 
Levin Dining Hall. Another member of the station, J.T. 
von Dermurdy, has spent time writing to various record 
companies requesting that the station receive promotional 
records in order to increase the album selection. The Student 
Government has also helped WAPO this semester by donating 
two speakers and an equalizer. In addition to all these 
things, the pool room on top of Segal Hall can now tune 
into WAPO, and the station itself has new speakers in its 

The latest project of WAPO is their candy sale. This is 
the second successful year that WAPO has sold candy. Once 
the sale is over, Station Manager Dave Geyer, Music Director 
Fred Del Angelo, Secretary of Foreign Affairs Aldo Stolte, 
and Business Manager Steve Saphos will discuss what is in 
store for WAPO in the upcoming weeks.

On Saturday, November 17th, Delaware Valley College 
presented for the first time ever its concept of a Folk 
Festival. The day was marked with a variety of craft booths 
set up and fine folk music. Some of the crafts included 
honey making, candle making, loom weaving, basket weaving 
and oil painting. One table had a beautiful display of 
porcelain ceramics that were for sale. The weightlifting 
club sold hoagies. Honey was for sale from the Apiary 
Society. Hillel had coffee and delicious caramel apples. 
A variety of cheeses were also being sold there. 

At 5:30 p.m. all the booths were Uken down. This 
permitted the use of the floor for dancing. Many different 
performers played the best folk music they knew, while 
the spectators clapped to the beat. Overall, the festival went 
over fairly well with both DVC students and outsiders 
enjoying the performance.

Pou/, George and John opened the second set with 
"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." 

The crowd of 2,000 enjoyed the magic of the early 
Beatles as well as the Sgt. Pepper Era. 

by Martha Gehrlnger 

The Magic of the Beatles came to DVC on December 8th, 
and on December 8th DVC came alive. 

It all started at 10:30 a.m. as members of the concert 
committee and other members of the student government 
began to set things up. This concert was the climax of two 
months of careful planning. 

Beatle Magic performed 8:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. with 
two encores. The show, highlighted by sound and light 
effects, was everything student government promised and 
more. This is the first profitable concert put on by any 
student government at Delaware Valley College. Approxi- 
mately 2,000 people (600 student and 1,400 general admis- 
sion) turned out for the performance. Everyone in student 
government who had any part in this should t>e commended 
on a job well done.

It is with profound sorrow and deep personal loss 
that I must advise you of the passing of Dr. Bertram W. 
Korn , on Tuesday , Dece mber 11,1979. 

Dr. Korn was an extraordinary man. He was a distin- 
guished Rabbi, scholar, historian, author and great 
American. He was retired last year with high |«onors 
from the United States Navy, Chaplain Corps with the 
rank of Rear Admiral. He was the first person of the 
Jewish faith to attain such an honor. 

Dr. Korn, Senior Rabbi of the Reform Congregation 
Keneseth Israel, has served the College with distinction 
and enthusiasm for over 30 years as a member of our 
Board of Trustees. He has inspired thousands of people 
with his writings, sermons and speeches. 

Dr. Korn was one of the greatest orators of our times. 
His beautiful voice, clear presentations and pronounce- 
ments and most meaningful thoughts and ideas will 
always be remembered by all who were fortunate 
enough to hear him speak privately, publicly or on 
radio or television. 

The College, the community, and the entire nation 
suffered a great loss. We at the College have lost a great 
friend. Dr. Bertram W. Korn will always be remembered 
for his outstanding accomplishments, humanitarian 
efforts, his dedication to equal rights, assistance to the 
elderly, indigent and handicapped and for his genuine 
love for his fellowman.

Rating ***'/2 Review by Steve Saphos 

Former police officer-turned-novelist Joseph Wambaugh, 
in an effort toavenge the Hollywood moguls who disastrously 
produced his first two works, The New Centurions and The 
Choir Boys, decided to use his screenplay based on fact film 
of The Onion Field as his producing debut. The film is based 
on former Los Angeles Police Officer Kurt Hettinger's actual 
account of what really happened that night in March of 
1963 when he and his fellow officer were taken hostage 
(remember the "Little Lindberg Law?") by two gunmen to 
an abandoned onion field where one of the gunnrwn (or was 
it both??) brutally murdered Hettinger's partner and un- 
leashed one of the most outrageous court cases in California 

The Onion Field, which Is being hailed by many as one of 
the year's top ten, is at very least, one of the year's most 
suspensefully intense films. The intensity of the sequences 
leading up to and including the onion field murder contain 
some of the most dramatic moments on film. John Savage 
(The Deer Hunter, Hair) turns in another of his growing 
consistency of fine performances of Officer Kurt Hettinger, 
who with the aftermath of his partner's murder, suffers 
through a severe mental breakdown. The sleeper per- 
formances of the year are witnessed in this film with the 
newcomers Jamie Woods and Franklin Seayls thoroughly 
convincing portrayals of the reluctant murderers. 

The Onion Field is not just a series of intense sequences. 
It is a film that attempts (and succeeds) to make a strong 
statement concerning our present justice system. Even 
though the level of momentum of The Onion Field tends to 
decrease as the film goes on, it is still certainly worth the 


If you are the owner of a bicycle, I am sure you have 
experienced great difficulty trying to get your bicycle out of 
your residence hall so you can use it. Of course, there are 
many different sizes and shapes; there is the Golden Cadillac 
which probably cost over $100, or the Model-T which has 
been your favorite bicycle since you were 1 3, and then there 
is the Antique which you bought at a garage sale for $10. 
Unfortunately, the poor bicycle for $10 is probably being 
stored in the farthest corner of the building, surrounded by 
25 other bicycles. This antique bicycle is also covered with 
dust and has probably never had the opportunity to see the 
outside world. 

These antique bicycles, along with many others, are 
causing a lot of problems for a lot of people; someone who 
uses his "vehicle" quite often and can't get to it, house- 
keeping cannot clean properly, and residents who can't even 
get to the soda machine, not to mention Blue Ribbon who 
will not even fill the soda machines if they can't get to them. 

We would like all owners of these two-wheeled vehicles to 
help eliminate this problem of overabundant bicycles which 
are never used. We are very concerned with the safety of 
individuals in the residence halls. Bicycles are blocking exit 
areas. If it were necessary to exit the building in an emer- 
gency situation, it would be very difficult because of bicycles. 

We urge you to take your bicycle home for the winter 

months. If you do not use your dusty bicycle frequently, we 

would like you to take it home for the remainder of the 

year. The perfect time to do this is when you leave for 

Christmas vacation. 

Thanks for your cooperation!

Dear Editor: 

It did my heart good to finally see a vast majority of our 
student body, along with our faculty, staff and the com- 
munity, having a resounding great time at Beatle Magic. 
Thanks to all those who attended, as you contributed to the 
enthusiastic atmosphere as well as making it a financia! 
success. Thanks also go to those who assisted us with the 
many details and demands along the way. 

However, my initial purpose of this letter is to congratu- 
late as well as thank the members of Government and Mr. 
Joe Marron who put in countless hours of their time to see 
Beatle Magic through from beginning to end, and make It a 
smashing hit. I don't think people realize how much tirre and 
effort is concerned with running various activities, so <f you 
get a chance tell them you liked the show — for ^at is the 
thanks they want. 

Anne, Chip, Craig, Fred, Keith, Jim, joe, Shorty, Tony, 
Dom, Hank, Gail, Jeff, Karen, Mike, Russ and Mr. Marron — 
you're all great!

The lames Work Gymnasium was the scene of pande- 
monium on the ni^t of December 4th as the Aggie Baslcet- 
ball team pulled off an unbelievable come-from-behind 
victory over Falrlei^ Dickinson, 65-62. 

With less than five minutes remaining in this classic 
contest, Fairleigh Dickinson had gained what seemed to be 
an insurmountable nine-point lead. The Aggies, with the ball 
handling of Mark Tymes, the pressure shooting of Ken 
Mitchell and the concentration of Bill Stanley at the charity 

line, managed to close the gap to one point with two minutes 
remaining on the clock. 

Then Fairleigh Dickinson went to a four corner stall and 
Les Lombardi's Aggies went to a full court press that forced 
several key turnovers. 

Stanley had a timely blocked shot on a lay-up attempt 
and Ken Mitcl^ll canned a long jumper, picked off an 
inbound pass for a lay-up and four points in ten seconds. 

Stanley added the winning points, making three of four 
free throws to nail down the decision 65-62. 

EXTRA POINTS: Les Lombardi has the Ag^es playing 
an aggressive defense this year that the fans will really enjoy. 

Early In the season it appears that the league is loaded 
with talent and most games will go to the wire. It should be 
noted that students can make the difference in home games. 

During the closing minutes of the Fairleigh Dickinson 
game several of their important free throws rolled around the 
rim and didn't drop, thanks mainly to the enthusiastic home- 
town crowd. 
























































The women "hoopers" of Delaware Valley College 
opened and closed their December season in rapid fa^ion by 
defeating Western Maryland 59-55 and falling to a strong 
Ursinus Club 70-48. The games were played December 6 and 
8, respectively. 

Outstanding performers for the Lady Aggies in both 
pmes were: Marcia Werner and Patti Rissinger. Werner, a 
freshman from Mt. Penn High School, Reading, Pa., scored 
18 and 14 points respectively. She also grabbed a total of 9 
rebounds and shot 8 for 9 from the foul line. In her first 
varsity contest, Werner replaced point guard, and co-captain 
Joyce Newswanger, who sustained an ankle injury the night 
before the home opener. 

Rissinger, a sophomore from Tri Valley High School, 
Hegins, Pa., contributed a combined total of 30 points in the 
games - 18 and 12 respectively. Rissinger played with four 
fouls in the Ursinus game and scored 9 of her 12 points in 
the second half of play. 

Ursinus, who runs the fast break to perfection, was never 
slowed down by the Lady Aggies, but two reserves, Diane 
Windholz and Sue Hartung, aided the Aggie defensive cause 
with their aggressive rebounding. Between the two, they 
nailed down 17 and scored IS points. Windholz is a local 
player from Central Bucks East High School, Buckingham, 
Pa., and Hartung played high school basketball at Belvidere, 
New Jersey. 

The women will not see action until January 17, 1980. 
They will host Lycoming College at 7:00 p.m. Their record 
to date is 1-1. 


The women's field hockey team was honored, along with 
cross country, soccer, and volleyball, at the Fall Sports 
Banquet on Monday evening, November 26, 1979. The 
banquet was held at the Moose Lodge in Doylestown. 

Annette White, a junior from Perkasie, Pa., was awarded 
the Outstanding Offensive Player Award. Although she 
scored only three goals during the season, her leadership and 
excellent stick work provided the Aggies with many offensive 
opportunities throughout the year. Miss White was also 
chosen to the first team All-Conference/Northern Division. 
She is the first woman athlete to attain an award from the 

The Outstanding Defensive Player Award was won by 
Bernie Romano, a native of Bristol, Pa. Romano is a first-year 
letter winner. Her consistency and gamesmanship aided the 
Aggie defense many times during the course of the season. 

The Most Valuable Player Award, the hi^est award an 
athlete can win, was won by Gail Fulcoly, a senior fullback 
from Doylestown. Miss Fulcoly is a Business major and a 
third-year letter winner. 

Other players receiving letters included: Linda Budrewicz, 
captain, Donna Cassano, Irene Costa, Mary Ann Horst, Janet 
Kruchow, Sue Ann Leed, Carol Metzgar, Barb Meyer, Karen 
Rogers, Linda Treese, Cathy Vitulla, and Brenda Wolfe. Miss 
Wolfe was the leading scorer for the Aggies, tallying 7 goals. 
She was selected to the second team All-Conference for the 
1 979 season. 

Other players who attended the banquet were: Joan 
Gunselman, Liz Heintz, Lynn Scheich, and Liz Trimble. 

The Lady Aggies are looking forward to their next season 
as 9 of 1 1 starters will be returning. Their opening game is 
scheduled for September 26, 1980, at Muhlenberg College, 
Allentown, Pa.

The evening of Friday, November 30, 1979, began with 
WAPO's own Dr. Quaalude (Steve Saphos) announcing the 
new wave band Dr. Bonze and the Unknownze to Segal Hall's 
plush basement club. From that point on there was rock and 
roll. Rock and roll the likes of which Delaware Valley Colle^ 
has never before experienced. The band exploded with a 
combination of original material and cover versions of other 
artists' tunes. The four-man band is led by Dr. Bonze on 
twelve string, John Lanzetta on bass, Mike Rauchut on 
drums, and an extremely talented lead guitarist by the name 
of John Bruning. The set opened with the good (joctor 
passing out his favorite prescription, to the delight of the 
fifty or so fans in attendance, many of them faithful 
groupies of the popular band. The evening climaxed with 
rousing versions of Van Morrison's Gloria and the Beatles 
Back in the U.S.S.R. The post-concert party was held at a 
remote farmhouse somewhere in Ottsville, Pa. 

Opening for Dr. Bonze and the Unknownze was the 
Street Players, who put on a fine display of folk music. The 
vocals of Daya Devi were most excellent, and the crowd 
responded well to their music. The Street Players will be in 
concert at DVC on Saturday, December 15th, from 8 p.m. 
until 1 1 p.m. in the dining hail. I urge you to go out and 
listen to these fine musicians from DVC. The other members 
of the group besides Daya, who plays tambourine and 
acoustic guitar, are Chris Doolin on guitar and flutist Woody 

For those of you who would like to receive Dr. Bonze's 

obscenity-laden newslf;tter which describes the rather unusual 

lives of the musicians, and also gives information on their 

upcoming concerts, you can send your requests to: Dr. 

Bonze, P.O. Box 723, Lansdale, Pa. 1 9446. Also be sure to 

look for the return of Dr. Bonze and the Unknownze to 

DVC sometime next semester.

On the evening of December 9th, members and friends of 
Alpha Phi Omega went Christmas carolling at Garden Court 
Nursing Home. The patients at the Home were happy and 
grateful that someone cared, and the students enjoyed 
meeting the interesting and amusing people. Everyone had a 
good time and APO would like to thank all those who took 
time out from their busy schedules to bring some joy to 
others during this Holiday Season.

Vol. XIII, No. 12 
Friday, February 1, 1980 


by Martha Gehringer 

"Boycott" is a word that has been used by consumer 
organizations to protest the high price of items. It made 
headlines a few years ago, and once again this year it is in the 
headlines. This year, however, it is not by some outraged 
consumer over the price of something; rather this year it 
concerns the Olympics. 

America, under the direction of President Carter, has 
decided that unless Russia pulls her troops out of Afgharvistan 
in thirty days, we will boycott the Summer Olympic games to 
be held in Moscow. Mr. Carter made this decision and 
announced it on Sunday, January 20th. So far, no reaction 
has come from Moscow. 

The 1980 Summer Olympics were to be a crowning 
achievement for Russia, a chance to show the glories of 
communism. A U.S. boycott of the games could take away 
from the grandeur and significance of it for the Russians since 
the U.S. does have some of the best athletes in the world. 
However, one of the main considerations must be the athletes 
who have trained so long and hard for the Olympics. The 
question of boycott should be addressed to the athletes who 
will have a chance to compete. Now the U.S. Olympic Com- 
mittee is starting to plan for something of a free world 
Olympics. Will this special Olympics also be fair to the 

The Olympics have certainly changed from the ideal of 
the best athletes coming together without political interven- 
tion. The Communist countries support and train their 
"amateur" athletes, and the government also directs what the 
athletes will compete in. The U.S. athletes, however, are on 
their own with help coming from the American public. 

Many questions are involved in this issue. Some of these 
questions are: What will happen if no other country boycotts 
the Olympics? France has already stated that her athletes will 
go regardless of what the U.S. does. Is this strong enough and 
sufficient action to stop them? Even though Mr. Carter has 
made this announcement, the Soviets have lifted still more 
troops Into Afghanistan and continue to move toward 
Pakistan and Iranian borders. It has also brought calls for the 
Olympics to be moved to a permanent neutral site. 

Perhaps we should allow our athletes to go - perhaps we 
shouldn't — but something must be done to stop the spread 
of Communism throughout the world. The U.S. has made a 
firm stand, but will it be enough and will the Russians listen?

As the price of gold continued to skyrocket to new highs 
this week, and the Cow-Bones Industrial Average showed 
moderate gains, a little-known commodity took off like 
wildfire and enjoyed insensate panic buying that made the 
gold market look like a standstill. Literally millions of STOP 
signs changed hands at increasingly higher prices throughout 
the week with many newcomers entering this speculative 
market. The reason for the sudden growth in activity is not 
totally clear at this time, but it is reported that a small college 
in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, purchased a large portion of the 
market shortly before the insanity broke loose. Perhaps they 
had inside information, but it is still the opinion of a few that 
it is not wise to invest excessively in this new market right 
now because of possible instability. 


This past weekend, Brad Beidel won the Pennsylvania 
Holstein Association Distinguished Junior Member Contest, 
senior division. He will be traveling to Pittsburgh, Pa., during 
late February to accept his award and to enter the competi- 
tion of the National Holstein Association, for which he is 
now qualified. Brad, a sophomore from Carlisle, Pa., is major- 
ing in Dairy Husbandry. Congratulations, Brad, and good luck 
in the Nationals!

A little bit of the Olympic spirit has been transferred from 
Lake Placid to the Library's Memorial Room where official 
photos and publicity are on display for everyone's enjoyment. 
The games begin on February 13th and include eight events. 
What are they? How high are the ski jumps? What are the luge 
and biathlon? Which competitors have the best chance to win 
a medal? Find the answers to these questions and more when 
you stop by to see the display. Good luck, U.S.A.!

If you are the type of individual who enjoys concerts, 
then you may be in for a pleasant surprise this semester. The 
return of the Grease Band will be on February 22nd. They 
impressed many last year when they came. Harry Chapin may 
be on his way in March. Social House is still working on 
having him for that month. He will be the replacement for 
Steve Forbert, who is going on a European tour and left us 
with one date that he would be able to come here. Unfor- 
tunately, the school has something scheduled for that date. 

Does the name "Cowtown" ring a bell? You may see them 
here on the A-Day weekend. The freshmen student govern- 
ment is working very hard to have them here. Even though it 
is traditional to have a dance band for A-Day, the freshman 
class voted unanimously for a concert instead. 

How does an outdoor concert sound? We may have one 
this spring. An excellent rock group was recruited by jim 
Trainer, Chip Cowher and myself at the Entertainers con- 
vention. They are called the Todd Hobin Band. They write 
their own songs. They will be a big hit at the College if we 
get them. 

Also scheduled in a couple of weeks are the dance mara- 
thon and New Year's Eve dance.

Dear Editor: 

I have received an official copy of the Opinion of the 
Court of the United States Third Circuit Court of Appeals in 
the case of Bradshaw versus Delaware Valley College. 

As you may recall, Donald Bradshaw was paralyzed as a 
result of a very unfortunate automobile accident on April 3, 
1975, in Doylestown, Pa. The three Judges of the United 
States Third Circuit Court of Appeals in a unanimous opinion 
overturned the judgment against the College. This particular 
case received national attention and considerable publicity. 

I personally called the unfortunate accident and the entire 
matter to the attention of the Pennsylvania Association of 
Colleges and Universities, known as PACU. This active and 
prominent association is composed of all the Presidents of 
the various colleges and universities in Pennsylvania. The 
PACU voted unanimously to enter an Amicus Curiae brief in 
support of our College. The very prestigious and highly 
influential American Council on Education (ACE) joined the 
PACU in the Amicus Curiae brief. The American Council on 
Education, which has its headquarters in Washington, D.C., 
represents most of the thousands of colleges and universities 
throughout the United States. 

It is evident that the wholehearted and practical support 
which was provided by the Pennsylvania Association of 
Colleges and Universities and by the American Council on 
Education and the a/guments of the Attorneys who repre- 
sented the College, helped to convince the Judges to render a 
decision in favor of the College. 

It is wonderful to begin the decade of the eighties on such 
a positive note.

Dear Editor: 

How safe in the James Work Gym? 

During the entry to the recent Beatle Magic concert, a 
rather disturbing incident occurred as the result of a verbal 
communication problem and the inherent warm-up period 
required for the mercury vapor lamps which illuminate the 
James Work Gym. A member of the Beatle Magic cast re- 
quested at the end of the pre-concert warm-up jam that the 
lights be turned out and the audience be allowed to enter. 
Unfortunately, someone followed his instructions before 
realizing that nobody could see the seats without the lights. 
It is believed that the Beatle Magic person was referring to the 
stage lights be turned off, but now is not the time to try to 
interpret his instructions because it no longer makes any 
difference. The lights in the gym had been turned off, the 
audience had already begun to file in, and there was no way 
to rapidly illuminate the gymnasium. Fortunately, through 
some stroke of luck, nobody was injured during the several 
minutes of darkness while the record-sized concert crowd 
entered, but not without many complaints from people, 
including Dr. Feldstein. 

When the lights finally warmed up to brightness, I looked 
around the gym, and to my amazement, I saw no emergency 
light sources. This means that if a power failure were to occur 
during an activity being held in the gym, there could poten- 
tially be a panic exodus with people being injured. In order 
for the College to reduce the potential of another liability 
lawsuit as well as to provide a common safety courtesy to its 
patrons to activities held in the gym, it is strongly recom- 
mended that something be provided in the way of rapid 
emergency illumination for the James Work Gym.

The Aggies completed their semester break with a 2-3 
record, defeating Moravian 73-72 and Muhlenberg 82-70. 
Their losses came in the finals of the Muhlenberg holiday 
tournament against the host "Mules" 101-91; at Albright 
97-82; and again on the road against Spring Garden 96-88. 

During a five-game home stand the Aggies lost to Susque- 
hanna 96-78 and rebounded with back-to-back victories over 
luniata 55-54 and Moravian again 66-63. Mark Werkiser was 
fouled with one second remaining in the game and completed 
the free throw for the victory over juniau. Two freshmen, 
Don Rogge and Gerry Lutz, helped the Aggies battle back 
against Moravian and Werkiser (20 points) and Tom Kehoe 
(16 points) vwre the big point men. 

Scranton University came into town and played like a 
Division II team, defeating a hustling Aggie five 105-83. Two 
time all-American Erving Johnson played an outstanding 
game for Scranton. Wilkes visited the James Work Gym- 
nasium over the weekend and left with a 87-81 victory. Mark 
Werkiser scored a career high 33 points for the Aggies. 

Monday night the team traveled to Kutztown and stayed 
with the Golden Bears only to lose 76-63. Tom Kehoe had 20 
points for the Aggies. 

Extra points: Les Lombardi's Aggies have been in every 
game except Scranton and miss the services of Aggie star Ken 
Mitchell who is out with a knee injury. Bill Stanley made 
several pressure points in the victory over Moravian and Mark 
Tymes made a key steal to set up the charity throws. 

Senior Steve Fornoff almost made his half court shot 
after the Scranton game. If it hadn't rolled off the rim, Steve 
would be driving that 1980 Z28 today. 

The Aggies host Philadelphia Pharmacy on Monday, 
February 4th, and Kings College on Friday, February 8th. 
Both games start at 8:00 p.m.

One obstacle in the path to success for the Lady Hoopers 
of Delaware Valley Colle^ has been Franklin and Marshall 
College until Tuesday, January 22, 19801 

The Lady Aggies, led by Co-Captain Joyce Newswanger, 
18, Brenda Wolfe, 18, and sophomore scoring leader Patti 
Rissinger, 12, were able to remove that obstacle as they 
defeated Franklin and Marshall 69-53 on their home floor. 

The Lady Aggies took a 4-1 record into the weekend, and 
managed to break even by defeating Muhlenberg College 
63-53, Friday, January 25th, but falling to Wilkes Saturday, 
January 26th, 71-64. 

Outstanding for the Aggies in the Muhlenberg game was 
junior forward Diane Windholz. Although Windholz did not 
start, she came off the*bench, scored 10 points, and pulled 
down five crucial rebounds midway through the second half. 

Also in double figures for the Aggies was Co-Captain 
Joyce Newswanger (15). Brenda Wolfe and Patti Rissinger 
added 10 points. 

The Lady Aggies were able to hold All-American Diane 
Kendig of Wilkes to 15 points, but the Colonels received 
balanced scoring from their other team members as they 
downed the Aggies in a bitter struggle in Doylestown. 

Wilkes led at half time 34-31, twt the Aggies fought back 
to take a 10-point leid with 7:39 remaining. The Wilkes 
press stymied the Aggies as it caused numerous turnovers. 
The Lady Colonels scored 1 2 unanswered points. Even with a 
time out, the Lady Aggies could not maintain the poise 
necessary to stifle the Colonels' momentum, which carried 
them onto victory. 

Joyce Newswanger contributed a seasonal high of 23 to 
ease the pain of defeat. Other Aggies players in double 
figures were: Brenda Wolfe, 12, and Marcia Werner, 10. 

In a barnburner Monday evening, January 28th, the Aggies 
ended their late January marathon by defeating Kings 
College 64-61. The Aggies jumped off to a 9-1 lead, but saw 
that fade in minutes, as Kings rallied, scoring 8 out of 1Q 
points from the foul line. Kings gained the lead and never 
lost it until the 4:38 mark in the ga^e when Del Val 
managed a five-point edge. 

With :40 seconds remaining on the clock, :17 on the 
30-second clock, and the score 62-61, Del Val had possession. 
They worked the ball around hoping for a zone shot, and a 
three-point edge; however, a costly turnovier erased any 
thought of taking that one shot. Kings took possession. They 
cautiously worked the ball, using as much of the clock as 
possible. They were even able to get it inside for a short 
lay-up, but could not connect. Brenda Wolfe, who scored 12 
points for Del Val, came down with the rebound and was 
fouled with :02 remaining. She shot both ends of the one on 
one to clinch the win for the Aggies. 

Also in double figures for Del Val was Diane Windholz, 
who scored her seasonal high of 16; Patti Rissinger and 
Marcia Werner added 10, while Co-Captain Joyce News- 
wanger netted 1 2. 

Lady Extras: Peggy Vellner's Lady Aggies are now 6-2 overall 
and 1-1 in league play. They have a short respite until 
Saturday, February 2nd, when they will be the guests of 
Allentown College in a traditional Homecoming Game begin- 
ning at 1:00 p.m. in Center Valley, Pa.

The Aggies wrestling team came back from Christmas 
vacation early to face Scranton in a 24-20 lo$s. Next they 
faced last year's MAC Champion, Lycoming. Lycoming over- 
powered Del Val despite three winners - D'Alessandro, 
Nebhut, and Robertson. In their match against Susquehanna 
there were six winners and Del Val won 27-1 5. Among the 
six winners were three freshmen - D'Alessandro, Ausec and 
Nebhut. This year's wrestling team is a very young one, 
having Bill Crozier as its only senior member and eight 

Prior to the Christmas break, the Aggies, coached by Bob 
Marshall, racked up a 3-3 record. Matches are held on 
Wednesdays and Saturdays, and the next home match is on 
Saturday, February 2nd, against Muhlenberg/Moravian.

That's right, folks - you can start your Tuesday mornings 
off right with Southern Stanley. WAPO is proud to announce 
that after much hard work, we have finally recruited Stanley 
Bromberg to the ranks of a WAPO DJ. 

This is a significant event. We have finally obtained a 
celebrity. You will all enjoy the variety of music he will bring 
to your ears. It's a form of music known as "melted metal". 
Due to the mind-numbing popularity of our famed celebrity, 
we are imploring the DVC security force to instate a crack 
riot division on the second floor of Segal Hall. Telegrams 
from such world-shapers as King Hussein, Ronald Reagan, 
Margaret Thatcher, Idi Amin, Dave Gilmore and many others 
could not be handled by the DVC mail room. If any of your 
important mail is late, please excuse the inconvenience, as 
you can see the importance of this world-shaking event. 

The Motion Piaure 

Review by Steve Saphos 

Starring: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and Deforest 

Directed by Robert Wise Rating ***yi 

The purpose of Star Trek: The Motion Picture should, if 
nothing else, constitute the phrase, "Old trekkies never die, 
they just return in forty-three-million dollar motion pictures." 
Well, regardless of the possibility of that phrase catching on, 
Star Trek will undoubtedly be regarded as one of the most 
extravagant science fiction films ever produced. 

The plot of the film manages to reunite the entire Enter- 
prise crew together in an attempt to confront an oncoming 
treacherous cloud formation, identified only as "V-ger", who 
tends to disintegrate anything in its sight that cannot cor- 
rectly respond to its plea to meet its "creator". V-ger's 
present course is headed directly to, none other than, the 
carbon-based inhabited planet Earth. 

William Shatner, to say the least, seems to be delisted to 
recreate his role of Captain (excuse me) Admiral James Titius 
Kirk. Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock appears to be as logical as 
ever to both his fellow crew and the audience. And to add a 
little spice to the Kirk and Spock team, DeForest Kelly as 
Dr. Bones McCoy humorously moans and groans through the 
entire journey. As for the rest of the crew, give or take a few 
gray hairs, a little weight gain, and a few additions such as 
Stephen Collins as Captain Decker and Persis Khambata as 
the shaven-head native of the planet Delta, everybody appears 
in tact. 

Special mention should be given to the technical portion 
of this film which was created by special effects whizzes John 
Dykstra (Star Wars) and Douglas Trumbull (Close Encounters 
of the Third Kind). The collaboration of Mr. Dykstra and Mr, 
Trumbull, under the direction of Robert Wise (The Hlnden- 
berg), and Jerry Goldsmith's brilliant musical score makes 
Star Trek absolutely breathtaking. 

Trekkie or not, fight the lines and go see Star Trek. Trust 
me, you'll enjoy it. 


Radio announcements of school and college closings due 
to weather conditions will again be by code rather than by 
name. Delaware Valley College's code numbers arc 770 for 
closing, 5770 for opening one hour late and 6770 for opening 
two hours late. These code numbers will be announced by 
the following radio stations: 








Local stations WBUX and WNPV will announce by name 
rather than by number. 

Decisions as to closings will be made and stations notified 
prior to 7:00 A.M.

Delaware Valley College contains many diligent students. 
The people of this school work very hard, but many of the 
students here at DVC find time to get out and enjoy the 
great outdoors. For this reason the Collegian has formed a 
weekly column telling you interesting facts about the out- 

1. Did you know that a razor-tip hunting arrow can go 
through a human being lengthwise? 

2. Last year at this time, there was already seven inches of 
ice on the local lakes. 

3. To a whitetail deer the scent of a human being is worse 
than that of a skunk. 

If you have any "Did You Know's" that you think people 
might enjoy, leave it in my Box (No. 602) at the school 
Post Office.

David Toma 


An evening with David Toma is never, ever one-sided. His 
straight ull(ing manner, franl<ness and at tinnes, frightening 
honesty are immediately apparent. The rapport is insuntane- 
ogs. First, on an emotional level, because Toma goes right to 
the heart of his audience, and then in a wildly verbal way, 
because Toma audiences don't just casually rap, they yell and 
cheer and argue, laugh and cry. 

David Toma is one tough cookie - Almost twenty years 
on the Newark Police Force; over seven thousand arrests 
(with an unprecedented 98% conviction rate); hospitalized 
more than thirty times for almost every injury imaginable; 
the only person in history ever to have two major television 
series (TOMA and BARETTA) modelled after his life and 
aired simulUneously. How many times did this legendary law 
officer fire his service revolver in the line of duty? Astound- 
ingly,not once! 

He can be heard on Monday, February 11th, 1980, at 
8:00 P.M. in Mandell Hall, Room 114. 


Delaware Valley College has been selected to host the first 
annual Winter Conference of the Northeastern Student 
Affiliate Division of the American Dairy Society Association 
and the National Block and Bridle Club on February 15 16 
and 17th. ' ' 

The Conference is being planned by Student Affiliate 
President, Ron Bates, SecreUry-Treasurer, Nancy Wenger, 
and President Advisor, Dr. Frederick Hofsaess, all of Delaware 
Valley College. The plans for this weekend consist of a Friday 
Night Student Affiliate reception. A tour of the College's 
farms Saturday morning, followed by a business meeting to 
be held in the afternoon, and wrapping up the day with a 
banquet and a square dance Saturday night. A farewell 
brunch for Sunday morning is also on the agenda. The guest 
speaker for the banquet is Dr. Peter Gerity of Salt Lake City, 
Uuh, who will speak on International Agriculture with an 
emphasis on livestock. There are approximately 200-250 
studenu expected to arrive at Delaware Valley from some 10 
different schools throughout the region. 

The Student Affiliate is composed of all non-land grant 
and land grant institutions that have a Block and Bridle Club 
that is recognized by their respective national organizations. 
These colleges must be located in the Northeastern part of 
the United States to belong to this regional organization. 
The Northeastern Student Affiliate is a unique organization 
In that no other organization of its type combines both 
Animal Science and Dairy Science. 

Anyone who would like to "lend" his room for the 
weekend should see Dr. Hofsaess. Rooms are needed for the 
guests and would be greatly appreciated. 


Review by Steve Saphos 

Starring: George Burns, Art Carney, Lee Strasberg 
Directed by: /Martin Brest Rating: *** 

Three old men sharing an apartment and living expenses 
together with just their Social Security checks *>ho one day 
decide to spice up their boring lives by robbing a New York 
City bank has some interesting and funny possibilities behind 
it. One might bring to mind Sydney Lumet's 1975 bank heist 
film, Dog Day Afternoon, and picture those circumstances 
with not Al Pacino and John Cazale handling the robbery, 
but instead with George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Stras- 
berg robbing the bank. Or better yet, think of Paul 
Mazzurisky's 1974 film Harry and Tonto (which, incidentally, 
earned an Academy Award for Art Carney's performance in 
the title role) and imagine these three elderly gentlemen 
discovering life in the fast lane toother. The possible 
humorous predicaments for the three are endless. But 
instead, director-screenwriter Martin Brest takes the easy 
way out and gives us a very honest, touching, and realistic 
approach that is not all too humorous. 

Going In Style does indeed borrow bits from Dog Day 
Afternoon and Harry and Tonto but manages to handle the 
load completely on its own. There is very little humor to be 
found, if any at all, in the very real elements that we must 
some day all confront - old age, loneliness and death. 

I must admit that I had placed high expectations on Going 
in Style that failed to come about Naturally, I thought that a 
film that combined the Ulents of Academy Award veteran 
performers George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg in an 
attempt to rob a bank couldn't be anything short of 
hilarious. Even though this film failed to live up to my pre- 
conceived expecutions, I must still credit director Martin 
Brest with not only possessing the courage of underuking a 
potentially funny plot and treating it as realistically as 
possible, but also with his smooth execution of it. 

George Burns, an Oscar winner for his supporting role 
performance in Herbert Ross' 1975 film The Sunshine Boys 
stands clear and above to be nominated a best actor nomina: 
tion for his portrayal of Joe Harris, the ringleader of the 
three in Going In Style. His performance ranges from his 
usual humorous gestures and phrases to a very dramatic and 
emotional side that has never been displayed in his acting 
before. Both Art Carney and Lee Strasberg merit special 
recognition for their amusingly touching performances as 
George Burns' elderly accomplices. 

I recommend seeing Going in Style with only one pre- 
caution, however - don't be misled into thinking that you're 
about to view a riproarious comedy. Think of it instead as a 
very realistic and touching film entwined with light overtones. 


According to Dr. Tibor Pelle, the Animal Husbandry 
Department exhibited three head of Beef Cattle at the 
Pennsylvania Farm Show. They placed as follows: 

1 An^s heifer calf 1 3th in her class 

1 Angus heifer calf 1 4th in her class 

1 Hereford heifer calf 1 2th in her class 

Cindy Cybowski, Nancy Wenger and Ronald Bates helped 
with the fitting and showing of the animals. 


A group of students has organized an alternative energy 
exhibit for this year's "A" Day. The exhibit will include a 
permanent 10' x 18' solar-heated greenhouse, a methane 
generator, a solar fruit and vegetable dryer, solar cooker, and 
a demonstration on wind power. There has even been some 
discussion about a solar still! 

We will be showing movies about the energy problems we 
face and ways to solve those problems through conservation 
and the use of wind, solar and biomass energy. There is the 
possibility of an alternative energy/energy conservation 

This exhibit has the moral and financial support of both 
the "A" Day committee and administration. We have the 
cooperation of many faculty members. Mr. Gavin has allowed 
us the use of the Drama Club room to complete art work for 
the exhibit. Mr. Wolford and Mr. Claycombs have provided 
use of the farm machinery facilities. Dr. Mertz, Mr. York, 
Mr. Happ, and the entire maintenance crew are providing use 
of tools for the project. 

At the first general meeting of the Alternative Energy 
Committee, there were over 40 students and one faculty 
member in attendance. Special thanks to all those who 
attended, especially to those folks who are volunteering their 
time and energy toward the completion of this project. There 
is a lot of work to be done. 

There will be another meeting on Wednesday, February 
13, 1980, at 7:00 p.m. in Mandell 114. All are invited.

The Indoor Rifle Guard, new this year, was first started 
about four months ago. its main purpose is to perform at 
half-time at home basketball games. The guard for this year is 
made up of five freshmen from Del Val and one senior from 
Pennridge High School. During the spring, the guard may be 
competing in a competition in upstate Pennsylvania. 

The background on the guard members goes like this: 
Diana Jenkins is a senior at Pennridge High School. Th»s is 
her fourth year with the marching band. She was both rifle 
captain and feature rifle during this past football Kason. 
Diana is also marching with the RJ's drill corps. 

Debi Jenkins is a freshman here at the CoHege and 
graduated from Pennridge High School. Debi twirled with the 
Pennridge marching band for two years. She was rifle captain 
last year and is also involved with the RJ's drill corps. 

Jacky Men to, who graduated from Downingtown Senior 
High School last year, was an instrumentalist with the march- 
ing band for four years. For Jacky, this is her first year as a 
rifle twirler. In the past two and a half months, Jacky has 
made much progress. 

Heather Hoffman is a graduate of Voorhees High School, 
N.J, She was silk capuin of the marching band in her junior 
and senior years in high school. At present. Heather is the 
guard manager and is learning rifle. 

The student instructors are Tony Proscia ind Lauren 
Clawson. Tony Proscia is a graduate of Woodrow Wilson High 
School. He has been involved in the high school marching 
band for four years as an instrumentalist. Last year he was 
Drum Major of the marching band. He has one year of Indoor 
Guard competition experience and was the first male to make 
the rifle line at Wilson. He is also the assisunt rifle Instructor 
for the Indoor Guard at Wilson. 

Lauren Clawson graduated from Lock Haven High School. 
She has had three years marching band and two years of 
Indoor Guard experience. She was the rifle captain last year 
and has competed in individual competitions. Both Tony and 
Lauren are hoping to be rifle instructors at Downingtown 
Senior High School next year; 

For those of you who have never heard of an Indoor 
Guard, they are usually made up of six to eight rifles, eight 
to sixteen flags and four to six sabres. Because of the limited 
numbers, they can only field a rifle line this year. They are 
hoping to increase their numbers next year. An Indoor show 
normally lasts nine to twelve minutes. This year they step off 
the line to Chuck Mangione'sy4/M///i the Beginning, followed 
by Maynard Ferguson's Birdland. 

Anyone who is interested in finding out about the Guard 
or joining or learning to twirl, should get in touch with any 
one of the members of the Guard. 


The 5th Annual Circle K 26-hour Dance Marathon benefit- 
ing Multiple Sclerosis will be held over the weekend of Friday 
and Saturday, February 8th and 9th. 

Last year the Circle K Club raised over $2,000 for the 
fight against the crippler of young adults. 

According to Joanne Lubanski, Secretary of Circle K, the 
marathon will get underway at 10:00 P.M. on Friday and 
continue through Saturday night. The dance will be held in 
the Rudley-Neumann Gymnasium with Tom Calvin and his 
staff from WBUX Radio in Doylestown providing the music. 
An added feature this year will be a mixer set for Saturday 
night to finish the 26-hour event. 

Please help in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. Dona- 
tions will be accepted.

Did you know that one of the catfish's favorite foods is 
soap? Not just any bathhouse bar, but those brands having

THE WALL - a review 


by Fredster (resident Floydo/ogist, Delaware Valley 

In this the year of our Pink Floyd nineteen hundred and 
eighty, the band continues to fly high. Their new album is 
good. For those of y(XJ who don't know what a Pink Floyd 
is, I will try to explain before the worms eat into your brain. 

Pink Floyd is four men who, for the lack of anything 
better to do, occasionally fool around with various instru- 
ments and record the results of their small get-togethers in 
album form. Everybody else is just green. The members of 
this obscure band include: Mason, Nick - percussion; Wright, 
Richard - keyboards; Gilmour, David - guitars; Walters, Roger 
- bass. Due to the fact that I have not mentioned any vocalists 
in the band, there probably aren't any. You wouldn't remem- 
ber their lyrics anyway. The members of the bafnd have all 
become comfortably numb and are enjoying the happiest 
days of their lives. But don't look so frightened - this is just 
a passing phase. 

Pink Floyd, "masters of rock" which they are, continue 
to explore the empty spaces within the minds of us and 
them. Recently I received a post card from the band which 
read as follows: 

"Dear Fredster, We are ticking away the moments which 

make up a dull day. We are waiting for the worms. 

Thought we'd something more to say. Wish you were 

here. Syd Barrett and friends." 

Enough of this meddling. What "more" can I say? The 
band is just fantastic, that is really what I think. Oh, by the 
way, which one's Pink??? To the animals who would like to 
see Emily play, you must try to control your young lust For 
showing feelings of an almost human nature, say three umma 
gummas and one atom heart mother. Welcome to the 
machine and I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

As part of their program to enhance the art of beekeeping, 
the College's Apiary Society (beekeeping club) recently 
purchased a 10-frame radial stainless steel Maxant honey 
extractor. The sophisticated piece of equipment is used to 
remove the honey from the honeycombs so that the combs 
can be returned to the bees for future use. 

The Club currently has about 50 members, most of whom 
had never seen the inside of a beehive until joining the Qub. 
Club members raise money for their various activities through 
the sale of honey and beeswax candles to fellow students at 
home football games and at other college functions. Over the 
years, the Club has t)een involved in the purchase of many 
items used in the management of the College's apiaries. Also 
starting in 1969, the Club took over an abandoned college 
building and, with the cooperation of th* administration, it 
completely renovated the building which now serves as a 
honey house and also as the center for other honey bee 
related activities on campus. 

The Club has been involved In many other honey bee 
related activities both on and off campus. In January, 1976, 
the Club set up a display at the Annual Meeting of the 
American Beekeeping Federation which was held in Philadel- 
phia that year. The display was entitled "The Story of 
Honey" and it showed to those in attendance the progres- 
sion of honey from the flower to the grocer's shelf. The Club 
has also been involved in judging honey shows in Pennsyl- 
vania and New Jersey; in helping with the Delaware Valley 
College beekeeping short course; and in sponsoring programs 
on campus with Mr. Jim Steinhauer, Pennsylvviia Depart- 
nrtent of Agriculture being this year's guest speaker in March. 

The Oub's origin goes back to the early days of the 
College. With the death of Professor Schmcider in the early 
1960s, the Club became inactive. The arrival of Jeff Clarke, 
son of Bill and Bess Clarke, as a student in 1966, brought 
about a revitalization of the Club. In 1968 Jeff took a lease 
of absence for a stint in the service, and Dr. Robert Berthold 
arrived as a member of the Biology Department, at which 
time he became Club advisor. From the initial seven Club 
members upon his arrival. Dr. Berthold has seen the Club's 
numbers greatly increase. 

Dr. Berthold is currently Associate Professor of Biology 
and Assistant Chairman of the Biology Department. He is 
active as a coach in Cross Country and Track and teaches 
General Biology and Entomology. He serves part time with 
the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture as an Apiary 
Inspector and lectures throughout the year on the subject of 

As one of its elective courses, Delaware Valley College 
offirs a regular three-credit Apiculture course during the 
spring semester. In the course, Dr. Berthold attempts to 
associate both the theoretical and the practical aspects of 
beekeeping. During the course, the students are exposed to 
many of the interesting facts of bees and beekeeping with the 
Honey House and College Apiary being extensively utilized. 
From the onset of the course, each student is also assigned a 
colony of honey bees which he or she has the opportunity of 
managing for the remainder of the semester. The College also 
offers two three-day beekeeping short courses each year — 
one in the spring and one in the summer. 

Over the years through participation in the Club and 
taking either the short course or the regular course, many 
Delaware Valley College graduates have become involved in 
beekeeping either as a full-time avocation, a side line, or a 


by Rick Lewis 

Although possibly overlooked by many, the DVC Student 
Government (and specifically the House of Social Activities) 
recently made the first major change in the calendar in many 
centuries. By decree, as evidenced in their most recent 
Calendar of Events, February now has 30 days. Possibly, 
though, as this is a leap year, it may usually only conUin 29 
days - unless, of course, December will pick up the extra 
day every fourth year, leaving the two additional February 
days to be picked up from months with 31. We expect to 
hear something about this from Student Government in the 
near future. 

NOTE: The Collegian has learned from a reliable source 
that the 30th day in February was Inadvertently 
added by the printer, who declined to be identified, 
but they are located % mile from the College. 
Perhaps March could begin on day two this year.

Dear Editor, 

Brrr-rr-rr . . . it's cold on the D.V.C. campus. With bone- 
chilling temperatures in the teens and Lake Archer being 
frozen over, one might think that this letter is about the 
recent frigid weather we have experienced, but it is not. 
Rather it is about the general student body of this campus. 
With a total population of approximately 1 ,400 students, I 
expected to find a small, close-knit and friendly community 
atmosphere at the college - much like that of my neighbor- 
hood. But instead I found a college community meticulously 
divided into groups of residents vs. commuters, "eggheads" 
vs. "jocks", seniors vs. sophomores, this major vs. that major, 
and so on until everyone is placed into a niche. These niches 
are so small that they become individual islands from which 
no one can enter or leave. 

I have also found a rare breed of arrogance (ignorance) on 
this campus which is called the "better than thou" and "I am 
God's gift to the world" attitude. Although its causes are 
unknown, its symptoms are very clear and pronounced. 
Examples of these are: 1) talking to people only when 
convenient (i.e., when missing lecture notes or an assign- 
ment), 2) completely forgetting one's lab partner over 
vacations, or 3) forgetting one's summer job co-worker as 
soon as returning to school. 

In conclusion, I would like to say that not everyone on 
campus is an arrogant ***. Many individuals are warm, 
friendly and kind people whose company can make you 
forget about the rest of this school. These individuals know 
whom they are, and I personally want to thank them for 
being just "plain folk" and not the "deity". 


Somebody Stuck in the Freezer 

Dear Stuck, 

As much as I hate to say it, I'm afraid that you are going 
to find the Impersonal attitudes which you described being 
present throughout almost all of your future social and 
business experiences. Besides, are you trying to say that you 
have no prejudices? 

All social groups exist because its members have some- 
thing in common with everyone else In the group. Otherwise, 
what would be the purpose of the group? I agree that it is a 
shame If these groups will not communicate with one 
another (If, In fact, they don 't), but I think that your second 
and third examples of arrogance are a bit far-fetched. 

By the way, you siem to have good writing skills. Have 
you ever considered joining the COLLEGIAN staff? We 
won't snub you! Meetings are at 4:00 p.m. on Monday 
afternoons in the basement of ill man Hall (across from the

Dear Editor: 

I have a problem which I feel the Student Government 
must deal with. My stereo constantly is too loud and I have 
been unable to correct the situation. I have tailed Mike 
Tierson repeatedly but WMMR refuses to turn down the 
volume on my stereo. Also, I question the quality of music 
played on this radio station as it seems to be "hard rock" and 
"heavy metal". I have also called up WMMR and repeatedly 
asked them to change their playing format, only to be 
ridiculed and cussed at. 

Now, this really burns me up. Being a person of extremely 
limited thinking, I cannot understand why they don'l turn 
the volume down on my stereo, or why I can't change the 
station. I also believe my sentiments and beliefs are repre- 
sented correctly by the numerous musical critics and radio 
technicians on the Student Government, and that a formal 
complaint to the FCC should be brought forth now.

Quadrophenla: n. Personality split Into four separate 
facets; advanced state of schizophrenia; twice the normal 
accepted medical condition. Inability to control which 
facet is foremost at any one time. 

Between the period of 1961 to 1964, the youth of Great 
Britain were encountering a strange rebellious turmoil within 
their society - a turmoil that would later appear in the 
United States with the emergence of such British rock bands 
as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who. Within that 
period in Great Britain, a three-way revolution had flourished 
between the "mods" and the "rockers", and the parents who 
never could grasp what was going on with their children at 
that time. The "mods" were a group of youths compiled of 
radical, strangely dressed, pill poppers who drove about the 
town on motor scooters. The "rockers", on the other hand, 
were leather-jacketed, slicked-back-hair motorcyclists who 
rode to the music of various American rock 'n rollers such as 
Elvis Presley, jerry Lee Lewis, and Little Richard. The con- 
frontations between the two almost always led to violent 
gang fights that would make anything in the 1979 film The 
Warriors look like a scuffle in a peanut gallery. The anthem 
which the "mods" clung to, incidentally, was the Who's 
classic "My Generation". 

Our guide through this "mod-rocker" experience, other 
than the Who's music, is jimmy Cooper, a truly dedicated 
"mod" who places all of his life's emphasis oh his motor 
scooter, various pills, sex, and intense degrees of violence, 
jimmy, however, is a quadrophenic, which can be described 
as one who is suffering from an extremely volatile state of 
mind. His illness brings about the following hardships to him; 
his parents throw him out of the house, he loses his job, his 
friends begin to constantly question his erratic behavior, and 
finally his insane state of mind turns suicidal when he is 
brushed aside by the girl he loves. 

Quadrophenla is a remarkably well put together film. The 
acting of Phil Daniels as jimmy, the excellently photographed 
scenes as directed by Franc Roddman, and (of course) the 
magnificently brilliant soundtrack by The Who all add up 
perfectly to, bring Peter Townshend's 1973 roCk opera to the 
screen. My only criticism of Quadrophenla, however, is that it 
is very "British", and as most British productions screened to 
American audiences in the past have demonstrated, they can 
tend to be a little drawn out and weary with their style of 
dry humor and wit. Quadrophenla is no exception. Still in all, 
aside from my one point of criticism, Quadrophenla is a good 
film and I would recommend seeing it. 

A special note of information is necessary for those Who 
fans who, like myself, have encountered difficulty in trying 
to understand Peter Townshend's 1973 rock opera. The film 
version of Quadrophenla explains it flawlessly without 
eliminating a single detail. As a matter of fact, just the other 
day both Dr. jimmy and Mr. jim came out and joined me for 
a nightcap of a, well you guessed it, a gin and tonic. 


Review by Steve Saphos 

Starring: Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, 

Jane Alexander, and Justin Henry 
Directed by Robert Benton Rating: **** 

Clearly, beyond a shadow of a doubt, Kramer vs. Kramer 
stands as the most likely candidate for the American film of 
the year. Kramer vs. Kramer contains superb acting perform- 
ances, a brilliant diredorial effort, a very contemporary 
subject matter, and an amusing musical score. With all of 
these positive elements in this film's favor, Kramer vs. Kramer 
is a production that fares nothing short of success. 

Kramer vs. Kramer, which is based on the novel of the 
same name by Avery Corman, is a story about a Rising young 
advertising executive who is so entangled in his career that he 
almost totally neglects the basic human needs of his wife and 

"KRAIV1ER vs. KRAMER" (continued) 

seven-year-old son. It's the husband's (Ted Kramer) alienation 
from his wife (Johanna Kramer) that builds up so tremen- 
dously on her that forces her to leave her husband and child 
and to pursue some sort of life of her own. The husband, left 
alone with the child, is confronted with the dilemna of estab- 
lishing a relationship with his son as well as continuing his 
vigorous career schedule. Well, fortunately for the father and 
son, their relationship (give or take a few sliortcoirings) 
manages to develop superbly until it is jeopardized by the 
return of the mother — thus embarking on a very severe, as 
well as painful, child custody case. 

Academy Award nominations will almost certainly come 
for the performances of Dustin Hoffman as Ted Kramer, 
Meryl Streep as Johanna Kramer, Justin Henry as the son 
Billy, and jane Alexander as a supportive neighbor who 
serves as a mutual friend of Ted and Johanna. In particular, 
further mention of Dustin Hoffman's performance is neces- 
sary, for Hoffman's portrayal of Ted Kramer certainly ranks 
alongside some of the actor's other fine performances, such as 
Benjamin Braddock in The Graduate, Ricco "Ratso" Rizzo in 
Midnight Cowboy, and Lenny Bruce in the biographical film 
of the late comedian, Lenny. 

Director-screenwriter Robert Benton (The Late Show) 
really comes into his own with Kramer vs. Kramer. Benton's 
thoroughly entertaining staging of such a very difficuK and 
serious subject matter triumphantly places this director in the 
realm of such great contemporary American directors as 
Coppola, Spielberg, Ashby and Lucas. 

Viewing Kramer vs. Kramer is certainly an enjoyable 
experience that I strongly recommend for all. In closing, 
please allow me the dastardly pleasure of revealing the out- 
come of Kramer vs. Kramer in this writing: Kramer . . . 
wins! Ha-ha, get it? Kramer wins . . . you know . . . Kramer 
vs. Kramer . . . who wins? . . . Kramer! Oh, well, see you at 
the box office. 


Review by Steve Saphos 

Starring: Robert Redford, Jane Fonda 
Co-starring: Valarie Perrine, Willie Nelson 
Directed by Sydney Pollack 

Rating: ***% 

Imagine this for a moment. Robert Redford, as a former 
rodeo champ, "horsenaps" a twelve-million dollar thorough- 
bred former race horse champion who is now the trademark 
of a large corporation; and jane Fonda as a sharp network 
news reporter who accompanies Redford on his horse theft. 
Together they combine and really stick it to the money- 
hungry corporate powers of America. Sounds simple? Yes, it 
is. Sounds amusing? Yes, it is. 

Considering the serious subject matter of the two prin- 
cipals' last two film outings (Mr. Redford's All the President's 
Men, which dealt with two Washington Post reporters un- 
covering a simple break-in which ultimately led to Watergate; 
and Ms. Fonda's The China Syndrome which uncovered the 
possible horrors of nuclear power in lieu of the Three Mile 
Island crisis) one would think that Mr. Redford and Ms. 
Fonda, as well as their movie audiences, could use a little 
break. The Electric Horseman provides Redford and Fonda, 
as well as the audience, that little break. 

Robert Redford, in completing his four-year semi-retire- 
ment from acting, makes an often amusing and funny return 
to the silver screen in his performance of Sonny Steele, a 
disillusioned one-time rodeo champ, now a spokesman for a 
huge corporation's breakfast cereal, jane Fonda turns in her 
usual fine acting performance as a newsreporter who just 
won't leave Redford alone. Add to that cast Valarie Perrine 
as Redford's ex-wife, John Saxson as the villainous corporate 
mogul in pursuit of Redford, and Willie Nelson in his acting 
debut as Redford's trusty companion, and you put together 
the elements for an enjoyable trip to the movie theatre. 

If the combination of Redford and Fonda together for the 
first time since Barefoot In the Park doesn't grab you, then at 
least check out the film for some of those "good ol' cowboy 
tunes" as performed by - none other than - Willie Nelson.

As one would pass by Lake Archer during the spring or 
early fall, he would get the impression that it is only an algae- 
filled water pool. To some of us outdoorspeople, it serves as 
an ice skating rink during the winter. It may not be the best 
quality ice as far as smoothness is concerned, but it surely 
satisfies the ice skater. Few realize the amount of fish caught 
in it when there is no ice covering. It is filled with carp, some 
of which have measured up to 25 inches. Bass are also Uken 
occasionally. An 18" largemouth was caught there last fall. 

The pond is also used for biological purposes. It is also an 
emergency water supply in case of a fire. The pond is not so 
bad after all - and, by the way, last fall I caught 78 fish in it. 

The pond is a real winner!

The place Is in me, like the swirling fog by a river at 

morning. Its presence abounds. 
Pain and sorrow, open emptiness, unfulfillment, disguised 

by joyful sounds. 
They kid you about how you need it all to survive, those who 

rot in close order drill. 
Don 't listen. Be like the last bald eagle in a sea of cities, 

still perched upon the hill 
Being a wind on a grassy plain has the meaning of a grain 

of sand. 
To them the power is in pictured leaves clenched in palm 

of hand. 
And what will I have someday when I cower warm in a box 

of wood? 
Why the buttons of life are at my command. Ah cent rati ty, 

it should feel so good. 
But I 'II always have a pain floating In me like a far point 

on a map. 
And I'll know that the children still live there before they're 

led Into the trap. 
I shall be haunted by that place In a wild mellow forest as 

I drift from young to old. 
Each zodiac will take me farther away as I grow empty, 

bitter, cold.

The Residence Life Office is offering you a self-defense 
device called the ChemShield. This non-lethal device is a 
means of protecting yourself. 

The spray canister contains Vi ounce of repellent: 1% 
Ortho-chlorobenzal-malononitrile (CS) with a non-toxic sol- 
vent. The canister is carried in a key ring case. As long as you 
have your keys with you, you have a means of self-defense. 
The canister can be removed from the case, if so desired. The 
spray has an effective range up to 10 feet. It has been 
suggested that the ChemShield self-protection device is more 
effective than the mace "gun". 

Chemical Shield has been certified by an independent 
FDA-recognized testing laboratory as not being a hazardous 
substance under the terms of the Federal Hazardous Sub- 
sUnces Act of August 12, 1961. Tests involved eyes, skin, 
acute dermal sensitivity and inhalation. Chemical Shield will 
not cause any permanent after effects. 

The effects of ChemShield produce extreme tearing and 
discomfort to the eyes; involuntary closing of the eyes; tight- 
ness of chest and throat (causing a feeling of suffocation) 
accompanied by panic; extreme nasal discharge; stinging or 
burning sensation on skin areas; headache, dizziness or 
swimming of the head; inability to take effective concerted 
action for ten to twenty minutes after exposure. 

Please contact Mrs. Navarre of the Residence Life Office 
by February 29th if you are interested in further information

Monday, February 11, 1980, David Toma came to Dela- 
ware Valley Colle^ and talked to a crowd that filled Mandell 
I lecture hall from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., and afterward 
talked informally to a crowd until 10:45 p.m. When Mr. 
Toma left, he had made an impression on everyone who had 
heard him. 

Mr. Toma was introduced by Jim Trainer. Jim told of 
how Mr. Toma had spent 21 years on the police force, six- 
teen of which he spent as a detective dealing with narcotics, 
gambling, and the Mafia in Newark, N.J. Jim also told of how 
Mr. Toma never fired his gun during his 21 years on the force 
and that Mr. Toma had an incredible 98% conviction rate, 
while the average is only about 1 5%. 

Mr. Toma started his lecture by giving his background. He 
spent five years on the force before he became a detective. 
After Mr. Toma became a detective, he started doing what he 
is famous for today. Mr. Toma became a master of disguises. 
His car held all of his disguises and whenever the need arose 
he was able to change to meet the need. He went down and 
lived with the drug addicts. He attempted to blend in with 
the drug addicts and find out why they did what they did. 

Mr. Toma had five nephews who were drug addicts. They 
told him that most people don't care about those that are 
down and out. But it was when Mr. Toma himself Inadver- 
tently became a drug addict that he was able to relate what 
his nephew had told him, and his nephew also helped him 
kick the drug habit. 

Mr. Toma then tried to reach kids who were on drugs and 
tell them what was happening with the drugs and how thty 
can screw up your life. It was because of his efforts that the 
police department gave him a lot of trouble, even to tiv 
point of threatening his life. 

Eventually, through his extreme persistence, he was able 
to get his book published and a TV series created about his 
life. They wanted to call the series "Supercop", but he 
wouldn't allow it since he is only an ordinary human who 
really cares. 

Mr. Toma never in his lecture praised himself. He tries to 
give two to three lectures a day in high schools and elemen- 
tary schools. He has Ulked to groups of second and third 
graders, and hardly ever talks to colleges any more. In the 
fifty states, 80% of the kids are into drugs and alcohol. 
People in all walks of life - parents, teachers, cops - are into 

In America, we are losing a war; we are in the process of 
self-annihilation. Mr. Toma related things which he has seen 
happen as a result of the use of drugs. He said that marijuana 
is the most unpredictable drug in the world. There arc 95-100 
different chemicals in marijuana before it is lit, and 300 
different chemicals after it is lit. Marijuana conuins the 
chemical THC. After smoking one joint of marijuana, THC 
lies in the body from three weeks to three months. It lies in 
the fat tissue which metabolize slowly; it lies in the brain and 
destroys brain cells; and it lies in women's reproductive 
organs and destroys them. The babies born of women who 
have smoked marijuana are sometimes severely crippled. 
Also, slowly but surely, it makes you lose your memory, and 
this can drive you crazy. 

Mr. Toma related stories of things he had seen as a direct 
result of drug use. Some people might call them horror 
stories, but horror stories are usually fictional, created for 
enjoyment. These stories were real! Last year the drug 
industry was estimated to have earned $100 billion - this 
was more than the top industries combined. Marijuana has 
been estimated to be second to water in use in some areas. 

Mr. Toma became emotional during his lecture. This was 
easy to understand when you realize how much he cares and 
how involved he is in what he is doing. Mr. Toma said that 
a cure for this messed up situation in which America finds 
herself is a strong family life with loving and touching being 
the basic ingredients. Mr. Toma also offers this advice to 
anyone who is in a situation where drugs and alcohol seem to 
be the answer or a way out. Get your head together; care 
about yourself; learn to cope; learn to deal with it. If you 
have to get high, get high on life. And reach out to others; 
you can't make it alone. 

Mr. Toma made an impression on everyone there Monday 
night. In some way he touched each one of them. If you are 
someone who uses drugs or alcohol and try to get bombed 
every Friday, you should have been there. If Mr. Toma 
returns to DVC, or makes an appearance in the area, you 
should try to make it. It couldn't hurt, and Mr. Toma would 
love for you to hear him because he cares what happens.

NOTICE: The opinions expressed in any individual article do not necessarily reflect the viewpoint of the paper or school. 




Dear Editor, 

During the past few weeks I have become increasingly 
distressed over the exorbitant amount of pigeon droppings 
accumulating on the front steps of the Feldman Agriculture 
Building. My stomach turns violently whenever I walk 
through this diseased, bacteria-ridden area. Is not anyone but 
me aware or concerned over this potential health hazard? 

But, alas, could it be that the defecant material is being 
left there for some reason I am not aware of? Perhaps college 
officials are planning to open a guano processing plant in the 
near future? Or could it be that good old David Moyer is 
planning some exotic addition to the menu. (But, then, 
anything would be an improvement!) 

I think the real reason for the rapidly accumulating drop- 
pings lies in the fact that we have a bunch of incompetent 
people in charge of the campus grounds. This surely must be 
true, as I can think of no other reason why such an atrocious 
condition would be allowed to prevail for so long. 

In conclusion, I would like to say that I hope that the 
aforementioned defecant material will be promptly removed, 
and the area will be kept clean and free of any diseased or 
unaesthetically pleasing material in the future. 


Fed Up With Filth! 

Dear Fed Up: 

We have checked with the Maintenance Department and 
learned that they are looking Into the purchase of ultrasonic 
sound devices called Bird-X that are designed to chase away 
birds nesting in and around the Feldman Agriculture Building. 
These devices will not harm the birds and, If installed, we 
have been assured that the troublesome mess will be cleaned 


Dear Editor: 

Please be advised that all entrances to residence halls will 
be secured beginning at Noon on Saturday, March ith. Only 
the main entrance of each hall will remain open until 5:00 
p.m. ALL STUDENTS will leave the residence halls by that 

Residence halls will reopen on Sunday, March 16th begin- 
ning at 12:00 Noon. 

No one will be permitted in the residence halls during the 
vacation period except by special permission from my office. 

Enjoy your vacation!

Director of Residence Life 

Dear Editor, 

If anyone has the address of Ripley's Believe It or Not, t 
would certainly appreciate having it. 

We've had what I believe to be another record set at DVC! 
And, this should be recognized. 

Oh, yes, the record. Our College Switchboard Person, 
upon noticing a light on the board glowing at 4:20 p.m. on 
Tuesday, February 12, 1980 (indicating an individual wanted 
to place an outside call) responded with due speed and 
dedication to that signal on Wednesday, February 1 3, 1 980, 
at 8:35 a.m. - only sixteen hours and fifteen minutes later. 
That must be a record. Don't you agree? 


Frank W. Grau 
Assistant Chairman 
Ornamental Horticulture Dept. 

Dear Mr. Grau: 

We looked Into this problem and learned that the College 
will be Installing a modern telephone system In the near 
future. This new system will certainly streamline service for 
the individual and will make life easier for our switchboard 
operators. Maybe we'll have some new world records for 
Telephone Call Speed Placement - such as 2.445 seconds. 



Dear Editor: 

Alt in all, you're just another brick in the wall. As a loyal 
student of Delaware Valley College, I am very pleased with 
many of the recent events here, especially the actions of one 
group in particular - our outstanding student government. 
The severe scolding which they unleashed against WAPO.our 
so-called campus radio station, just warmed my heart. The 
quality of music they play is just awful, although I personally 
cannot get enough of it. But, then again, for the sution to be 
so uncooperative with distinguished student government 
members is another matter completely. I salute their fine 
work in handling this delicate situation. 

It was even reported that many students were becoming 
sick from listening to the music while they were eating in the 
dining hall. I can't even begin to imagine the mess this must 
have created in the cafeteria. I feel that if the music played 
by WAPO continues to cause sickness among the students 
here, then the only logical solution would be to ban the 
consumption of food on campus - unless, of course, each 
student is issued a set of earplugs before entering the dining 
hall. To solve this whole thing, I believe that the station 
should adopt a more refined musical format and should play 
mellow, unexciting music such as that produced by Led 
Zeppelin, The Who, Pink Floyd, The Stones, Black Sabbath, 
Aerosmith, BOC, Patti Smith, Nazareth, Neil Young and Ted 
Nugent, just to name a few. There are just so many to 
choose from. 

I'm also very glad to see that government didn't allow 
Steve Forbert to play here. An up-and-coming recording sUr 
such as he would only give the school a bad reputation. 

Well, that's about all I have to say. I'm just so glad that 
life at DVC (Artificial World) continues to run so smoothly. 
I was going to finish this article today, but then I remembered 
that we have a whole extra day this month, so I decided to 
finish it on February 30th. 

A Very Concerned Student 
P.S. I'm glad to see the stop signs are working out so well.

I would like to thank Sandy, Jackie, Heather, Alice, Tom 
Calvin, Melissa Damast from M.S., Mr. McOelland and all the 
dancers plus so many more people who helped make this 5th 
Annual Dance Marathon a success. We raised almost $2,000 
and we had the best music ever! We also had the most 
couples ever to last the marathon — despite the food. 

A party was held for everyone who was involved in the 
Marathon on February 27th at 8:30 p.m. in the Dining Hall 
Lounge. Prizes were given out - including the scholarship 
and the dinner(s) to Bentley's, plus a whole lot more.

There are probably very few people who didn't see the 
spectacular performance of the United SUtes hockey team 
during the Olympic games. The celebration and unrestrained 
patriotism which followed the gold medal victory were of an 
unbelievable magnitude, and rightfully so. There was some- 
thing more to the victory, however, than the timely defeat of 
the Soviet Union. Besides providing us with a tremendous 
source of national pride, the hockey team also gave millions 
of discouraged people a sense of hope. 

In these days government is becoming increasinj^y larger 
and more powerful; mechanization and urbanization are 
making people as individuals less significant; and the affairs 
of our nation and our private lives are being dictated by a 
handful of oil companies, bureaucrats, and other such 
criminals. It is refreshing and invigorating to know that the 
weak underdog, through hard work, toughness, and per- 
sistence, can still overcome an intimidating giant.

Anyone who heard David Toma speak on February 11, 
1980, here at DVC would have gained the impression that he

Toma in any way, since what he is doing is important; but it

Second year coach Les Lombardi knew he was in trouble 
when senior co-captain Mark Werkiser injured his ankle 
shortly before the beginning of the 1979-1980 campaign. 
Playing at less than full speed, Mark limped through the first 
seven games but still managed to compile some impressive 
statistics for the season. The same kind of experience hap- 
pened to last year's all M.A.C. and E.C.A.C. All-Star, 
co-captain Ken Mitchell. "Mitch" missed three games with a 
knee injury and played out the last well below par. Add to 
this the loss of the team's leading rebounders and second 
leading scorer at mid-term and the Aggies post an overall 
5-19 record and 2-11 In the M.A.C. 

"Werk" paced the team in scoring with a 14.2 ppg 
average while leading the team in field goal F>ercentage at 
.556. He was also second in free throw percentage at .847 
second to Tom Robinson. Over the course of the 24-game 
season, Werk led in rebounding with 164 for 6.8 rebounds 
per game. Mitch, who joined the elite 1,000-point club last 
year, averaged 1 2.4 ppg shooting .54 from the floor. For four 
years at D.V.C., Mitch totalled 1304 points to place fourth 
on the all time scoring list. He did his share on the boards 
averaging 4.7 rebounds per game. 

Other standouts for the Aggies were senior Bill Stanley 
who averaged 6.5 rebounds per game and led the team in 
blocked shots. Tom Kehoe, who was last year's Most Im- 
proved Player, had his ups and downs throughout the season 
and averaged 10.9 ppg and 4.5 rebounds. Sophomore point 
guard Mark Tymes broke the school record for most assists in 
a season. Mark surpassed- the 1 06 assist mark and set the new 
school record at 1 26. 

As a team, the Aggies shot .459 from the floor and 
opponents usually raised their floor percentages at the 
expense of the Aggies. Although the opponents averaged 
10 poinu more than D.V.C. the difference was 8 points or 
less in 1 1 games. The complete statistics are attached.

Review by Steve Saphos 

Starring: ' Peter Sellers. Shirley MacLalne, Melvyn 

Douglas ana Jack Warden 
Directed by Hal Ashby Screenplay by 

Rating: **** (highest rating) Jerry Kosinski 

The slogan for the film Being Tiiere goes like this: "If 
getting there is half the fun, then being there must b* ail of 
the fun." Absolutely! Hal Ashby 's Being Titere Is, In my 
opinion, the funniest and most satirical took at intellectual 
American political life ever filmed. 

Being There is a film about an air-headed, ihallow-ipinded 
gardener named Chance (portrayed superbly by Peter Sellers) 
who has never left the home and garden of his employer in 
his entire life. Chance's only link to the outer world is 
provided by his intense addiction to television. When his 
ailing, aged employer passes on, Chance is forced to leave his 
home and venture into the world for the first time ever. 
Arnr>ed with only a suitcase and a remote control television 
switch. Chance embarks on his journey. It is while watching 
a television, outside an appliance store window, where Chance 
literally bumps into Shirley MacLaine. From that moment 
on, the unbelievable becomes believable in Being There. 
Chance befriends the wealthiest man in the country, councils 
the President of the United States, appears on a "johnny 
Carson type" talk show, and becomes the hottest celebrity 
in the nation. 

Being There is by ail means an exceptional film. Combin- 
ing Hal Ashby's (Shampoo, Coming Home) direction of 
Jerry Kosinski's humorous script with the brilliant perform- 
ances of such veteran actors as Peter Sellers, Shirley Mac- 
Laine, Melvyn Douglas, and Jack Warden all add up to make 
Being There a total success. Peter Sellers, in his most out- 
standing role (excluding the Inspector Clousseau perform- 
ances), as the shallow-minded Chance, since his multi-role 
performance in "Dr. Strangelove", undertakes a limited range 
character such as Chance and fulfills it to the maximum. 

Especially in the midst of a presidential election year, a 
film such as Being There is just too good to pass up. Go see it, 
it's great. 

By the way, did you ever stop to think how high Henry 
Kissinger's IQ really is? 

Awards, awards, awards. It's about this time of year that 
everybody gets together and presents their awards of out- 
standing achievement for the previous year. Well, look at it 
this way - if Broadway can have its Tony awards, and if 
Hollywood can have its Oscar awards, then why can't Dela- 
ware Valley College throw its hat into the ring of the 
prestigious award ceremonies. 

Well, folks, rest easy, because this year, for the first time 
ever, Delaware Valley College will present their first annual 
"Aggie" awards. The "Aggie" award will be broadcast live on 
WAPO 640 AM on March 28, with your host Aldo Stolte, 
and Leslie Scheffler. Guest presenters include Jane Fonda, 
Sun Bronberg, Syd Barret, Al Alberts and Charro.

At a special seminar conducted In Work Hail Lounge on 
Tuesday, February 19th, Mr. J. Howard Foote held a discus- 
sion on the topic of Careers in Selling with the members of 
the senior class in Business Administration. Mr. Foote is the 
past president of Penn Engineering and has had an extensive 
career in sales and sales management. 

The major emphasis of Mr. Foote's remarks concerned the 
rellity that many college graduates find themselves in sales 
positions; some by choice, many because of availability in the 
.field. According to his experiences, Mr. Foote feels that sales 
can be both financially rewarding end fulfilling as a business 
career. A good sales person acts as a consultant and teacher 
'to clients in satisfying their needs. Sales positions require an 
ex'traverted personality, one who likes people and is moti- 
vated by challenges. 

The Business Administration students and Mr. Foote 
engaged in a dialogue as a rapport was quickly developed in 
the seminar. Questions and comments ranged from the 
subjects of business ethics to the need to qualify the cflent 
and "homework" to be done before a salt. The point was 
made that the selling field requires a professional commit- 
ment Mid hard work of those planning to enter it.

Dear Editor: 

It is Saturday morning, March 1st. I filled two large 
laundry bags with soiled and filthy clothes, picked up my 
detergent and bleach, and lugged everything through the 
ice-chilled air to the Ulman basement laundry room. What do 
I find? Only a couple of ambitious dudes painting the walls. 
Now, I realize that the walls needed painting as badly as I 
needed an "F" in a course in number line drawing. I also like 
the way it was announced after the paint was dry that the 
walls were going to be done. Announcements really get 
around campus well. Oh - one last thing. Why couldn't they 
fix the machines instead of paint the walls? 

Anonymous Dude 

Dear Dude: 

Please refer to Collegian released Friday, February 29, 
1980, 3rd column, first page, announcing Laundromat closing 
for weekend of March 1st and 2nd. If you had read the 
Collegian, you could have saved yourself the trip on that 
cold and chilly Saturday. 



Calvin Coolidge once said, "I think the American 
public wants as its president, a solemn ass." This is 
evidenced by the New Hampshire primary. 

Dear Editor, 

On a recent visit to the dairy barns, I noticed a white 
horse had taken up residence there. This horse was being 
housed in a box stall which normally could hold two heifers. 
My question is - whose horse is it, and why is it there? Did 
the Lone Ranger decide to abandon Silver here at D.V.C. to 
help D.V.C. get started on its horse program? Who is this 
masked horse, where did he come from and, most important- 
ly, who is paying for his board? Is it the student body or is it 
the owner of the horse? 


Dear Anonymous: 

We checked into this and learned that a friend of the 
College asked to house his pony at the College for a period of 
about one month. The owner Is paying for all feed and care. 
It is hoped that this could be the beginning of the addition of 
some horses on campus to enhance the educational program 
in the Animal Husbandry. 

* « * 
Dear Editor, 

I would like to take this time to thank the student body 
of Delaware Valley College, in behalf of the Northeastern 
Student Affiliate Division of the American Dairy Science 
Association and the National Block and Bridle Club, for their 
help in housing the student representatives of our member 
chapters, during our recent winter conference. Without the 
help of the students our first annual winter conference would 
not have been as successful as it was. 

Respectfully yours, 

Ronald O. Bates 

President, N.S.A.D., A.D.S.A & N.B.B. 

Dear Editor, 

As a female Animal Husbandry student at this College, I 
would like to voice an opinion concerning a policy which I 
consider to be sex discriminatory. The policy I am referring 
to is the employment program. 

This policy requires women to seek jobs in fields where 
sex discrimination is widespread and - worst of all - legal. 
If a woman applies for a job in any industry, government-run 
institution, or company, she is guaranteed that they will not 
discriminate against her because of sex if all other things are 
equal and she can do the job. However, these rules do not 
apply to agriculture. If a farmer wants to hire a guy, he won't 
care if fifty girls apply; he'll choose a guy. The rationale is 
that guys can do more work in a day than girls can. 

The point isn't whether or not his opinion is right or 
wrong. The point is that all those female applicants must seek 
employment elsewhere. I'm sure that plenty of female Animal 
Husbandry majors can argue that they are working on farms 
and they had no trouble getting their jobs. Well, that's fine 


and dandy for them, but if a policy exists which is definitely 
easier for one sex to fulfill than it is for the other sex, then I 
would call that policy sex discriminatory. I'm not criticizing 
the farmers who won't hire the women. I think that is their 
own personal business and no law should deny them the right 
to their opinion. This school, however, is a different story. 
Here there is a situation where an unfair advantage is being 
given to men. Since nrwle and female students pay the same 
tuition, it shouldn't be more difficult for female students to 
graduate. If the school were to say that male students need 
10 less credits to graduate, there would be an uproar, but 
nobody seems disturbed by this similar situation. 

If a male Animal Husbandry student wants a job on a 
farm, all he has to do is make a phone call, drive to the farm, 
and he's got a job. A girl, however, can make 50 phone calls, 
drive all over the county, and all she ends up with is no job, 
a big phone bill, and an empty gas tank. 

I'm sure somebody reading this is wondering why, if a girl 
can't get a job on a farm, doesn't she get herself some other 
job related to her major? Well, that's really quite simple. They 
don't exist When applying for any summer job you are 
dealing with a limited number of openings. Vou also are 
competing with thousands of other college and high school 
students seeking summer positions. The majority of jobs 
available are toUlly unrelated to Animal Husbandry and those 
that do exist are usually filled very quickly. There are jobs 
available which relate to Animal Husbandry and engage in 
no sex discrimination. The only catch is that these positions 
are volunteer. I have nothing against volunteering for a good 
cause, but since the staff and faculty here are not willing to 
do the same, everyone must pay tuition. A volunteer position 
may provide the job necessary to fulfill the requirement, but 
there's no need to meet the requirement if you're not going 
to school and there is no way to go to school if you don't pay 
tuition which can't be paid if you work for free.

Vaudeville was featured at this recent DVC appearance. 

More than 100 fireman from four companies battled a 
blaze at the College's dairy which erupted shortly before 
8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 12, 1980. The fire was 
under control by 9:30 p.m., but firefi^ters were unable to 
save the barn from total destruction. 

The barn was used by the College to store hay and feed, 
and thanks to students and College personnel on the scene no 
cows were injured by the fire. One witness said, "It took ten 
minutes to burn down." 

The College is saddened that a Jamison man, Alvin H. 
Cornell, Sr., 57, who was directing his son in a bulldozing 
operation, collapsed and subsequently died. The bulldozing 
operation was designed to push hay and debris from the fire 

The blaze was so intense that flames could be seen for 
miles from the fire scene.

Although the "Lady Hoopers" of Delaware Valley 
were only able to salvage a fourth place finish in the South- 
east Division of the Middle Atlantic Conference (2-3), their 
overall record of 10-5 stands as the best record posted by an 
Aggie women's team. Highlighting their season included wins 
over Franklin and Marshall, Kings, Albright, and Western 
Maryland. Three of those teams qualified for play-off 
berths in other conference divisions. 

Patti Rissinger, sophomore, topped all Aggie scorers with 
183 total points, a personal and school seasonal record. 
Rissinger averaged 1 2.2 points per game, shooting 33% from 
the floor and 69% from the foul line. Her 18-point perform- 
ance against Western Maryland, in the home opener, was her 
high game of the season. 

Also in double figures for the Aggies, was senior co- 
captain Joyce Newswanger. She broke the all-time school 
scoring record of 479 points held by Janice Kirk, '78. She 
netted 482 points in 45 games, averaging 10.71 per game. 
This season Newswanger missed two games due to injuries, 
but in 13 outings, she tallied 161 points for a game average 
of 11.5. 

Brenda Wolfe, a junior, became the third leading scoring 
leader in the school's history. She boosted her career total to 
411 by pouring in 120 points in 13 games, Wolfe's rebound- 
ing and tenacious defense accounted for the Aggies' survival 
in all their close games. Wolfe was also honored by the Moose 
Lodge #1 284 of Doylestown, as Player of the Month, at their 
February luncheon. 

Other players who contributed to the Aggie success story 
include: Diane Windholz, who led the team in rebounds, 
grabbing 82 total. She also tallied 109 points, scoring a career 
high of 17, against Drew, in the Aggie's 56-53 win. Windholz 
is being honored by the Moose Lodge #1 284 at their March 
luncheon as the Unsung Hero.

and the lifts in the contest will consist of the bench press, 
the squat, and the dead lift. The combined weight lifted by 
an individual in the three events will represent his total per- 
formance in the contest. Prizes will be awarded to first, 
second and third place lifters in each weight class. In all, there 
are twelve trophies and six engraved medals to be won by 
members of the student body. 

Don't delay; see Jim in Samuel Hall, Room 215, or John

enable someone to get started in beekeeping. The Spring 
course will be held on Saturday, March 29, and Saturday and 
Sunday, April 1 2 and 1 3. The Summer course will be held on 
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 20, 21 and 22. 

The course is under the direction of Dr. Berthold who 
will be assisted by Mr. Jack Matthenius, the New Jersey 
Supervisor of Bee Culture. Some of the topics to be covered 
are: Honey Bee Ecology, Beekeeping Equipment, Starting 
with Bees, Colony Establishment and Management, Queen 
Rearing, Bee Diseases, Honey Processing and Sales, and 
Cooking with Honey. Many of the topics covered 'n discus- 
sion will also be observed and/or practiced in the DVC Apiary 
and Honey House. 

In past years, a number of Del Val students and faculty 
have taken the course, as well as beekeepers from as far away 
as Texas, California, Canada and Venezuela. Further informa- 
tion about the course can be obtained from the College 
Receptionist, Mrs. Martin, in Lasker Hall, or from Dr. 
Berthold, Room 203, Mandell Hall.

bookstore with the understanding that APO will receive 1 5% 
of the actual selling price as a commission. The actual price 
of the books is determined by the person wishing to sell 

The APO Book Exchange will then be open two weeks at 
the beginning of the Fall 1980 semester and each subsequent 
semester. If the book is not sold within these two weeks, it 
will be returned to the owner. Within four weeks after the 
bookstore has opened, the checks or unsold books must be 
picked up. If the owner does not return at the end of four 
weeks, the books become the property of APO. Provisions 
will be made for graduating seniors or transfer students who 
will not be returning to DVC to collect their books or check. 

The APO Book Exchange Office is located on the second 
floor of Segal Hall across from the Pool Hall, and will be 
open this semester at the times listed below so that you may 
drop off your books. Books are being collected this semester 
to be sold in the fall.

It is very easy to pay lip service to all the movements you 
hear about today. We have Save the Whales, Seals, etc., but I 
think we should save something i little closer to home - the 

Due to a cold, dry winter coupled with no snow to shield 
the ground, the turf on campus has been literally trampled to 
death. The soil is frozen now but will be a muddy quagmire 
when it thaws. Only nature can repair the damage done so far 
but we can prevent further deterioration. Now'sthe time for 
all you closet conservationists to put into practice what you 
preach and cto something concrete. So take a few extra steps 
and stay on the paths so we can have a green campus come 


Once upon a time, there was a little red hen who scratched 
about the barnyard until she uncovered some grains of wheat. 
She called upon her neighbors and said, "If we plant this 
wheat, we shall have bread to eat. Who will help me plant it?" 

"Not I," said the cow. 

"Not I," said the duck. 

"Not I," said the pig. 

"Not I," said the goose. 

"Then I will," said the little red hen. And she did. The 
wheat grew tall and ripened into golden grain. "Who will 
help me reap my wheat?" asked the little red hen. 

"Not l,"said the duck. 

"Out of my classification," said the pig. 

"I'd lose my seniority," said the cow. 

"I'd lose my image," said the goose. 

"Then I will," said the little red hen, and she did. 

At last it came time to bake the bread. "Who will help 
me bake the bread?" asked the little red hen. 

"That's not my job," said the cow. 

"I've never done that before," said the duck. 

"I'm a dropout and never learned how," said the pig. 

"If I'm to be the only one, that's discrimination," said the 

"Then I will," said the little red hen. 

She baked five loaves and held them up for her neighbors 
to see. 

They all wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share. But 
the little red hen said, "No, I can eat the five loaves myself." 

"Unfair!" cried the cow. 

"Hard-nosed!" screamed the duck. 

"I demand equal rights!" yelled the goose. 

And the pig just grunted. And they painted "Unfair" 
signs. And they marched all around shouting obscenities. 

When the administration came, they told the little red hen 
"You must not be greedy." 

"But I worked hard, and I earned the bread," said the 
little red hen. 

"Exactly," said the administration. "That's the wonderful 
free enterprise system. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as 
much as they want. But under our system, the productive 
workers must share with the idle." 

And they lived happily ever after, including the little red 
hen, who smiled and clucked, "I am grateful. I am grateful." 

But her neighbors wondered why she never again baked 
any more bread. 

"It's your campus, my friends," said the people who are 
trying to take care of it. 

"What's the difference if I drive across the grass?" said the 
jerk in the Jeep. 

"Someone will clean up the litter," said the slob. 

"Who cares if we stampede across the remains of the 
lawns?" say the herds emerging from buildings. 

"Somebody should take care of things around here," say 
the multitudes. 

"Help, help!" say the people who are trying to care for 
the campus and the people who care about the campus. 
Everyone in the barnyard has to help us keep the campus 
beautiful. And help us continue to improve the campus, 
your home, your alma mater, your future image!

To the Editor: 

You may have been wondering whatever happens to our 
business majors once they leave the hallowed halls of D.V.C. 
Rumor has it that business majors are "lazy", and that they 
major in "Mickey Mouse" courses and athletics. Why, then, is 
it that business graduates consistently have a higher rate of 
employment in their chosen field than students of any other 
major at D.V.C? According to the official report by our 
placement office, four out of five recent business graduates 
are employed in some aspect of business. These fields include 
accounting, marketing, insurance, computer programming, 
and different levels of management. 

I'd also like to refute the insinuation that business courses 
are not as challenging as laboratory-oriented courses. Just ask 
any Ag major who has ever taken Economics. 

The future for business students is very bright, and they 
should be proud of their major and take a more active role in 
campus affairs. Needless to say, I'm a business major.

Dear Editor: 

I would like to thank the members of the Christian 
Fellowship for volunteering their service to help improve the 
appearance of the College laundromat. By this time, I am sure 
the "new look" has been noticed. I am certain that the 
College community joins me in extending a sincere 

I would also like to remind the resident students to 
notify the Residence Life Office when the machines are not 
working properly. 

Mrs. Navarre 

Dear Editor: 

The entire college community joins me in extending our 
heartfelt appreciation to alt who helped during the tragic fire 
at our Dairy. The admirable and dedicated support of the 
Fire Companies, Women's Auxiliary, friends and neighbors of 
the College, and particularly the faculty, staff and students, 
will always be remembered with great appreciation.

The Hort. Club will be selling dried f.uits and nuts all this 
week in the cafeteria, Segal Hall and from any Hort. Club

not buy some and have a healthy snack for a change. 


The Annual Spring Bloodmobile returns Wednesday, April 
2, 1 980. Blood can be donated from 1 0: 30 a.m. to 3: 30 p.m. 
in the Rudley-Neumann Gym. Our goal this semester is only 
100 pints. Let's be sure to at least make our goal to insure 
coverage for the entire student body and their families. 

Over Spring break, one of our students was involved in a 
serious accident and needed blood. As a result of your 
previous generosity, he was able to receive the badly needed 
blood from the American Red Cross and it was not necessary 
for his family to replace the blood. 

On-campus students should sign up with your RA. There 
is a sign-up sheet available for off-campus students in Segal 
Hall and the Infirmary. 


A fire broke out at 1 2: 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 22nd, 
in Work Hall destroying the contents of a four-man room. 
Doylestown and Chalfont fire companies were on the scene 
and quickly contained the blaze. Fortunately, there were no 
injuries in the emergency, and power and heat were restored 
later in the day allowing residents of Work Hall to move back 
to their rooms before Saturday evening. 

The occupants of the damaged dormitory room (George 
Donadi, Paul Joyce, Larry Brown and Robert Rutan) have 
been relocated. All of their possessions were completely 

There was some smoke and water damage in the area 
located directly above the fire location involving the "T" 
area of Work Hall. This damage, however, did not disrupt 
returning residents. The Bucks County Fire Marshal is still 
investigating the cause of the blaze and results were not 
available at press time. 

The Collegian would like to commend Bruce Bartolucci 
who reacted quickly by sounding the fire alarm. His alert 
action had the fire company on the scene within minutes. 

Others who deserve thanks include Mr. Marron, Area 
Coordinator; Chief Pence, and Bill Johnson from security 
who were at the scene early and remained there throughout 
the day. RA's Fran Zamiskie and Scott Horoff also aided 
during the emergency.

Review by Steve Saphos 

Starring: Roy Sche/der, Jessica Lange, Ann Renking, 

and Leiand Palmer 
Directed by Bob Fosse Rating: **** 

Viewing All That Ja// allows the audience the oppor- 
tunity to embark on a journey that includes all of the joy, all 
of the tears, all of the laughter, all of the pain, and all of the 
jazz of choreographer-director Bob Fosse's life. 

All That la^z is by far not the traditional American 
musical that we have all become accustomed to over the 
years. Like director Bob Fosse's previous two film ventures 
(Cabaret, Lenny), All That jazz is filled with musical and 
cinematic innovations never before visualized on the screen. 
All That jazz is about choreographer-director Joe Gideon'; 
(Roy Scheider) intentional flirt with death. Joe Gideon leads 
such a strenuous erratic life style that ultimately leads to a 
heart attack. Death, for Gideon, is not a horrible ending but 
a romantic fantasy. Having dominated stage, screen, and sex, 
ironically, the only thing worth living for to Joe Gideon is, 

Roy Scheider's Academy Award nominated performance 
as Joe Gideon is, to say the least, dazzling. Scheider truly 
turns in the performance of his career. His ability to sing and 
dance unleashes a quality never before displayed by the actor. 
Bob Fosse's direction as well as cinematographer Giuseppe 
Rotunno's (8'/i) camera work make All That Jazz a thrillingly 
razor sharp feat of perfection. 

All That jazz is certainly as entertaining and flashy as it is 
unconventional. Regardless of whether or not the plot of 
All That jazz grabs you, the rhythm and sheer energy that 
the film projects will keep your feet lapping for weeks.

On Thursday, April 17th, Delaware Valley College will be 
hosting its annual career conference, under the direction of 
Steve Saphos and Terry Todd. This year's conference 
promises to be the best ever, with over 20 speakers represent- 
ing such diverse fields as real estate, computer programming, 
investment, and advertising, to name just a few. The confer- 
ence will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. in the 
James Work Gymnasiunn, and coffee and donuts wilt be 
served. The atmosphere of the conference will be :hit of an 
informal trade convention, allowing the students to talk to 
the representatives of the fields that interest therri most. 
Although this conference will be of special ir fewest to 
business students, all students are cordially invited .o attend.

The conference will be conducted by Mr. West, Chairman 
of the Business Department, along with several people 
from industry. 

A well-written resume can help you get the job you want, 
and this conference will show you how to present your 
qualifications in the best way possible. The conference 
will \k especially useful to seniors who are about to enter 
a fiercely competitive job market, but all students who 
attend will gain something from this helpful presentation.

On Wednesday night, March 12th, at about 8:00 o'clock 
p.m., most of us were enjoying our little vacation. But for 
those faculty members and students of D.V.C, it was a 
different tune. The hay barn at the Dairy was up in flames. 

How the fire was started is not known. The hay barn, silo 
contents. Dr. Harner's office, the fuel generator and many 
tools were destroyed by the intense heat. Fortunately, the 
fire company responded promptly or a real catastrophe was 
inevitable. If there is any bright side to the story, I guess we 
can thank those D.V.C. students, faculty and the fire com- 
pany personnel for the good job of getting all the cows out 
quickly and to safety. 

I feel that there is no reason why such an incident such as 
this should occur. If it was set intentionally, then I say that it 
was a sick person to do it; and I hope he feels guilty about it 
for the rest of his life.

Although the Lady Aggies have stolen the spotlight 
recently in basketball at Delaware Valley, the men presented 
their awards at their annual banquet. Senior co-captain Mark 
Werkiser was selected by his teammates as the Most Valuable 
Player. In a season that started out with an injury, Mark came 
on strong to take Moose Player of the Month in January and 
the Herb Good Player of the Week presented by the Philadel- 
phia Sportswriters at their weekly luncheon early in February. 
Mark was also honored by the Moose as the recipient of their 
Most Valuable Player award presented by Mr. Ned Linta last 
Thursday at a special luncheon for the College seniors in men 
and women's basketball and wrestling. In his sophomore year, 
Mark was the team's Most Improved Player and last year he 
received the Calvin P. Kidder Award for academic and 
athletic leadership. 

Senior co-captain Ken Mitchell was presented with a 
plaque for his fourth place finish on the Ail-Time Scoring 
List. "Mitch" totalled 1304 points. Last year's M.V.P. and 
both M.A.C. and E.C.A.C. All-Star was honored this year as 
the Moose Player of the Month for December. 

Receiving the Most Improved Player was Lyn Matthews, a 
junior who played on the junior Varsity last year and 
through his own hard work contributed significantly to the 
Varsity this year. The Calvin P. Kidder Award went to Dale 
Lawrence, another junior.

The Delaware Valley women's basketball team held its 
annual sports banquet Thursday, March 6, 1980, at the 
Moose Lodge in Doylestown, Pa. 

Among those receiving special awards were: senior co- 
captain Joyce Newswanger. She became the all-time leading 
scorer for the Lady Aggies as she shattered the record held by 
Janice Kirk '78 (479); Newswanger scored 482 career points. 
She was also named to the Middle Atlantic Conference's 
southeast league all-star team. She is the first Lady Cager to 
be awarded all-star honors. 

Patti Rissinger was awarded a plaque for her outstanding 
achievement as the high seasonal scoring leader for the Aggies. 
Rissinger toUled 183 points, averaging 12.2/game. 

The most coveted award, the Most Valuable Player, was 
won by junior Brenda Wolfe. She scored 1 20 points, boosting 
her career high to 41 1 , the third highest scorer in the school's 
history. Besides her ability to score, she accounted for many 
rebounds and provided the spark which enabled the Aggies 
to accumulate a 1 0-5 overall. 

Other players who received varsity letters for their con- 
tributions throughout the season were: 

Diane Bradley, Donna Cassano, Sue Hartung, Mary Ann 
Horst, Donna Kaledinskas, Marcia Werner and Diane 
Windholz. Windholz was also named by the Moose of 
Doylestown as the "Unsung Hero" for the 1979-80 
season. She tallied 109 points and grabbed 82 rebounds. 
The Lady Aggies finished third in their league behind 
Widener and Ursinus.

This past week, before spring break, the girls finished up 
their floor hockey season with five wild and woolly playoff 
games. The first two playoff games got under way Tuesday 
night. These two games decided the fourth and final 
playoff spot. 

The first game matched U.S. and the Flakey Flyers with 
the winner meeting AMF later on that night. The Flakey 
Flyers took both these games, and won the right to face the 
Goal Getters Wednesday night in the semifinals. The Goal 
Getters were the only team to boast an undefeated record 
throughout the regular season. This team had the league's 
leading scorer in Anthea Strong and one of the league's 
best defensemen in Debbie Winger. The two teams squared 
off and the Goal Getters prevailed, putting them in the 
finals Thursday night. 

The team they were to play was decided later that night 
when S.N.A.F.U. played the girls from Cooke second. This 
game was extremely exciting, as anyone who was there might 
tell you, and wasn't decided until the last 25 seconds when 
Marge Gay scored her tie-breaking, breakaway goal that put 
Cooke second into the finals. 

The final stage had been set. The first place Goal Getters 
against second place Cooke second. The game began at 5:30, 
and at the end of the first period the Goal Getters were 
winning 2-0. The feeling in the packed stands at Rudley 
Neumann Gym was that the Goal Getters were going to run 
away with this game just like all the others, bul nobody told 
Cooke this. Cooke came out in the second period all fired up. 
Sue Leed put Cooke on the scoreboard early in the second 
period which was shortly followed by a Goal Getters goal but. 
Sue Leed put another goal in the net for Cooke at the end of 
the period, leaving the score at 3-2 Goal Getters with one 
period remaining. 

The third period consisted of fine defense by both teams, 
but then with about four minutes left, Sue Leed struck 
again; the curly-haired sophomore had been working her 
way near the net when she got the puck, and shot it in. The 
final four minutes were as exciting as any hockey game that 
anyone might see anywhere. Two apparent goals were scored, 
but both were denied by good tails by the rcfs. 

The third period having ended in a tie, called for a five- 
minute overtime, with the first goal being the winning goal. 
The period began with the teams playing very cautiously, 
but with about two minutes remaining, Marge Gay received 
a pass at the blue line, carried it in and drilled it past the 
Goal Getters goalie. The place went crazy, putting an end to 
an outstanding girls hockey league season. 

The winning teams players consisted of Marge Gay, Sue 
Leed, Karen Burker, Nancy Bushy, Cathy Miller, |an Newton, 
Lisa Graham. 

At this time, I would like to thank the refs for the fine 
and consistent work throughout the season.

Vol. XIII, No. 18 
Friday, Aprill 1,1980 

NOTICE: The opinions expressed in any individual article do not necessarily reflect the viewpoint of the paper or school. 




To the Editor, in response to the letter written by 
C. Prundeanu, April 2nd issue of the Collegian. 

Dear C. P.: 

I feel that your recent letter was an insulting attack on 
the Agriculture majors of DVC. 

The courses that Business majors take may be somewhat 
better than mediocre "Mickey Mouse" courses, but certainly 
not more challenging than the courses in the Agricultural 
curriculum. Most people can read their text book and get an 
"A" or "B" in Economics and Marketing, but, my friend, 
life is more than reading books. A doctor can read books all 
his life but without the skill acquired by practice and prac- 
tical application he is worthless. Laboratories are challenging 
ancJ are very important in the learning process and in the 
acquisition of many skills. 

I'd also like to correct you on a point about the higher 
rate of employment for business majors as opposed to agri- 
culture majors (especially Dairy and A.H. majors). As a result 
of your insinuation I was urged to visit the placement office 
where I checked out the percentage rate of placement for 
Dairy and Business majors. I averaged the percentages for 
1977 through 1979, and my results are as follows: Dairy 
majors averaged 90% for job placement in their fields, while 
Business majors averaged 78% for job placement. That's quite 
a difference compared to your analogy. 

You also mentioned various fields available to Business 
majors. Well, here are some of ours: Farm owner, managers, 
herdsmen, research workers, Vo-Ag teachers, veterinarians, 
feed and medical supply salesmen, county extension agents, 
A.I. technicians, laboratory technicians and various positions 
in dairy and meat processing. These ixt just a few. 

A graduate in Dairy Science has a better chance to get a 
job than most other agriculture majors. There is a very high 
demand nationwide for good qualified people in this area. 
We are certainly not a dime-a-dozen major. 

To make a further point. Agriculture is one of America's 
top business enterprises. Isn't it the man in agriculture who 
hires accountants, marketing agents and computer program- 
mers? In a sense, one might conclude that you work for us. 
I would think that indicates who is at the head of the game. 
If it weren't for agriculture, your job placement wouldn't be 
half as good. 

Needless to say, I am a senior dairy major, a subdivision 
of the agricultural industry, and to put it bluntly, I'm 
damned proud to be one and I'm grateful to the people who 
helped me achieve my goal. By the way, I have a good job 
position to go to when I graduate, plus I have also been 
offered two others. I think that's pretty good for an 
"Ag Major".

Dear Editor: 

I would like to take this opportunity to comment on the 
superb job Harry Chapin did at the recent concert held on 
our campus. Mr. Chapin was a pleasure to work with, the 
road management were polite, courteous and made no un- 
reasonable demands. Mr. Chapin himself put on an excellent 
show which generated fantastic audience response. It was, by 
far, the smoothest running, most problem-free major event 
held on this campus. 

This is directly due to the outstanding people who were 
part of it all. Please excuse the list form, but I feel everyone 
must be recognized: Mrs. Nelson, Dr. Hill, Mr. and Mrs. 
Lyford, Mr. Ned Linta, Dr. Gallagher (C.B. East), Dr. Spahr 
(C.B. West), Mrs. Dot Sherwood, Mrs. Marie Stough, Mr. 
Wilson, Mr. Lou Casernes, Mrs. Roberts, Mr. Marty Stern, the 
anonymous people who donated the scaffolding, Mr. Rob 
Liebau, Mr. Vic Goffredo, Mr. joe Hartranft, and last but 
not least the "Fantastic 25" students who went above and 
beyond the call of duty. I would have named them all, but 
did not want to miss anyone - so to those "25" an extra 
special "thank you."

Dwight Stones is one of the world's greatest Irack and 
field stars, as well as being one of the most outspoken figures 
in sports. A two-time Olympic champion, Dwight is currently 
ranked number one in the United States in the high jump, 
having maintained this ranking for the past seven years. In 
addition, he is currently ranked number three in the world! 

He has won an incredible 15 national championships and 
he was named "Indoor Athlete of the Year" by Track and 
Field News for the years 1975 and 1976, and was pro- 
nounced to be the highest ranked high jumper in history, 
outdistancing even Russia's great Valeriy Brumel. 

Dwight Stones has always shown the charismatic appeal 
of a true media personality, and the entertainment industry 
responded in 1979 when he was invited to appear on The 
Merv Griffin Show, Dinah, The Tonight Show, The Tomor- 
row Show, and A.M. Los Angeles. He became a sports 
commentator in February of 1979, covering the San Diego 
Invitational Track Meet for NCB-TV's Sports World. Proving 
to be a successful commentator, he covered the NCAA Track 
and Field Championships for ABC-TV in May 1 979, and the 
World Cup for ABC-TV's Wide World of Sports this past 

Dwight Stones' articulate speech combined with his 
fantastic athletic background and his work in the entertain- 
ment industry has also resulted in his popularity on the 
college lecture circuit. ' 

Dwight Stones will speak at Delaware Valley College on 
Friday, April 18, 1980, beginning at 8:00 p.m. He will 
discuss the subject Olympic Boycott in the James Work 
Gymnasium. The address will be open to the public and 
there is no admission charge. Dwight Stones is currently 
training for the 1980 Olympics to be held in Moscow, and 
considering his reputation as an outspoken and articulate 
speaker, this program should be of interest to sports and 
Olympic enthusiasts. 

Delaware Valley College is located on Route 202, one 
mile west of Doylestown.

2-0 START 

Coach Wolfgang and the Aggies of Delaware Valley 
College travelled to Reading, Pa., to blank Albright in their 
first regular season game 2-0. 

Delaware Valley had good, strong pitching from Lenny 
Conrad and Jeff Theibault, each giving up only one hit. 

The Aggies scored on a solo homerun from junior first 
baseman Mark Monroe and good hitting from |ohn Stark, 
George Donadi and Rich Dougherty, each having a pair of 

Albright's only threat was in the ninth inning when they 
had the bases loaded and one out. Jeff Theibault struck out 
the next batter after falling behind in the count 3-0. The final 
out was made on an outstanding running catch by Tom 
F ranee llo. 

On Wednesday the Aggies went on the road again and 
defeated host Swarthmore 4-2 for their second consecutive 
victory and a 7-2 overall record counting their Florida trip. 
Rod Bates went 3 for 4 collecting 2 RSI's with a double and 
two singles. Mark Monroe also had 2 RBI's with a single. The 
winning pitcher was Jeff Theibault with the save going to 
Steve Fornoff. 


On TuescJay, April 1st, the Delaware Valley College Track 
team travelled to Millersville State College for their first meet 
of the season and were outmanned 116-28. Individual Aggies 
performing well in their first competition were Mark Tanker- 
sley, Jeff Robinson, Steve Lilly, Dave Graeff, Gary Walters 
and Warren Robertson. Sophomore Mark Tankersley was the 
only DVC doublewinner taking both the 110 high hurdles 
and 400 intermediates with time of 14.75 and 55.9 respect- 
ively. Senior Steve Lilly took a second in the long jump and 
third place in both the 100 and 220. Sophomore Dave Graeff 
took a second place in the triple jump. Juniors Gary Walters 
and Warren Robertson took third place in the shot put and 
discus. The 1600-meter relay team of Jim Moran, Chris 
Bradley, Jim Loughran and Jeff Robinson nipped the Millers- 
ville entry. 


Are you one of the constant complainers about DVC 
Cheerleaders? Here is your chance to do something about it. 
Spring, when young men's thoughts turn to everything but 
books, is the time to select next year's Cheerleading Squad. 

Both men and women alike will be selected. If you want 
to help out, encourage other people to participate. You can 
make someone's day, week or month by saying, "Why don't 
you try out for the Cheerleaders?" 

On April 11, 1980, at 4:30 p.m. there will be a meeting 
of anyone interested in cheering for our 1980 fall season - 
men and women alike. 

Workouts will begin on Monday, April 14th, through 
Friday, April 1 8th, from 4: 30 to 6:00 p.m. Final tryouts will 
be held Monday, April 21st, at 7:00 p.m. in the James Work 

The Cheerleaders will be picked by a panel of judges con- 
sisting of the graduating cheerleaders and members of our 
faculty and staff. An entire new squad will be selected from 
the candidates. 

This is your chance as a student of Del Val College to 
better our Cheerleading Squad for the new 1 980 season. Try 
out and support your athletic teams and school.

Review by Steve Saphos 

Starring: Walter Matthau, Julie Andrews, Sara Stimson, Bob 

Newhart, Tony Curtis, and Lee Grant 
Directed and Written by 
Walter Bernstein Rating: *** 'A 

Q: What do Heaven Can Wait, A Star Is Born, and The Front 
Page all have in common? A: They are all recent film remakes 
of classic films that have managed to fare just as well as their 
predecessors did some forty -odd years ago. 
Q: What do King Kong, The Champ, and Lost Horizon all 
have in common? A: They are all recent film remakes of 
classic films that just shouldn't have been . . . remade. 

Well, the fourth remake of Little Miss Marker, fortunately, 
deserves a comfortable position among those films listed 
above in the first paragraph (tricky, eh?). Walter Bernstein's 
new version of the classic Damon Runyon story, set in the 
depression era, deals with the plight of a bookie, Sorrowful 
Jones (Walter Matthau), being left with a six-year-old girl as a 
marker for her father's lost bet. 

As demonstrated in films before, such as The Bad News 
Bears and Casey's Shadow, Walter Matthau seems to be most 
at ease in his acting when he is working with kids. His rapport 
with newcomer Sara Stimson (recreating the role that made 
Shirley Temple a household name), is by far no exception to 
the other films. 

Rounding off the remainder of Little Miss Marker are the 
talents of Julie Andrews, Bob Newhart, Tony Curtis, Lee 
Grant, and the rhythmic thirties-era music of Henry Mancini. 
It is, however, interestingly enough, that despite all of the 
years of experience and talent centered around a film like 
Little Miss Marker, that a six-year-old little girl, just like the 
one forty-six years prior to this production, manages to steal 
the show.

The James Work Gymnasium was filled with the sound of 
folk tunes on March 27th as Harry Chapin and his band 
poured forth a collection of mellow, easy-listening songs 
which delighted a giant crowd of all ages. The concert rolled 
into gear with Chapin's hit "Taxi", which was met with such 
audience enthusiasm that it was repeated at the end of the 

The crowd of 2,000, which had been gathering at the 
doors since six o'clock, was treated to three hours of sing- 
along tunes. The five-piece band backing Chapin was well 
organized and harmonious. They accompanied their lead well 
right through a fabulous encore of the classic "Cat in the 

Financially, the concert was a tremendous success as well. 
The profits realized from the concert will go to the World 
Hunger Organization in Harry Chapin's name. Clearly, school 
morale could benefit as well from more performances such 
as this. 



Early Thursday night, March 27th, a small gathering of 
people began to appear at the James Work Gymnasium doors. 
Soon the crowd grew and grew into a snake-like line, slither- 
ing around the DVC campus. What had they come for? What 
was the big attraction? It was, of course, the Harry Chapin 
concert presented by the Studen; s^overnment here at DVC. 
Just about seven o'clock the an'icipating snake was allowed 
to fill the seats of the gym. 

After a brief intro by Jim Trainer, Chapin and his five- 
piece band appeared on stage and were well received. The 
band consisted of Harry's brother, Steve Chapin, on piano, a 
drummer, two guitars and a lady on the cello. 

Harry started off the night with the ever popular hit 
"Taxi" and other popular numbers such as "And the Baby 
Never Cries" and "A Better Place To Be." After a twenty- 
minute intermission and a cooling down of the overheated 
gym, the band returned with brother Steve playing a song he 
wrote called "Let Time Go Lightly," with the cello accom- 
panying him. Harry then took over with "Flowers Are Red", 
"Mail Order Annie", and "Bananas", complete with all four 
endings and the audience willingly informing him that, 
"Harry, it sucks!" (although it really didn't). "Cat's in the 
Cradle" was, of course, a popular crowd pleaser. By eleven 
o'clock Harry's voice was getting hoarse and he ended the 
evening with "All My Life's a Circle." 

It was obvious that everyone really enjoyed this evening 
with Chapin and his somewhat mellow and moving songs. 
Those that liked him before, liked him even more and those 
that really didn't know him surely became fans. He gave an 
excellent show with a very personal touch through his lyrics 
and stories, which came from his heart. 

Thanks go out to the Student Government and everyone 
who helped make the evening a great success. The audience 
was great in their cooperation in obeying the No Smoking 
rules and being on excellent behavior. Their support in filling 
the chairs on the gym floor and packing the "cheap seats" 
made it possible for the Student Government to make a 
donation to the National Hunger Fund in Harry's name. A 
special "thanks" to Harry Chapin also. Let's hope this is the 
beginning of many more "Evenings in Concert" at DVC.

A concert takes more to put together than most people 
realize. Many think it is a simple matter of booking the per- 
former, setting things up, and maybe doing a little publicity. 
To get Harry Chapin here. Student Government had to do 
more than that. The Harry Chapin concert began to be 
planned back before Christmas break when the question- 
naires were handed out in the Dining Hall lobby. 

After Christmas the contract with Harry Chapin had to be 
acquired and approved. Then, the publicity push began. 
Flyers were put out in a 25-mile radius of the school; radio 
and newspaper ads were begun, and the students felt the 
publicity on campus. Ticket sales were set up in the cafe, 
and nine routes were planned for delivering posters. 

There was extensive planning put into the night of the 
concert. Harry Chapin's contract was very demanding and a 
lot of supplies had to be obtained to fill it. Everything had to 
be planned ahead of lime in order for the night of the concert 
to go as smooth as it did. 

Friday before the concert all the planning began to take 
shape. The stage and stage equipment was picked up and 
started to put together. The biggest push came on the day of 

the concert. At 7:00 a.m. the chairs were picked up and the 
gym started to be prepared. The stage had to be put in place 
and all the stage equipment placed in its proper place, all 600 
chairs placed in their positions on the gym floor, and the 3 
dressing rooms prepared. 

Next, Harry Chapin's crew came with a semi-trailer and all 
their equipment and instruments. These things also had to be 
placed in the right space. 

After the set-up was complete, it was time for the concert 
to begin, and after the concert was over the tear-down began 
as soon as the people were gone. The borrowed equipment 
had to be returned and the gym returned to normal. 

Chip Cowher and Jim Trainer were mainly in charge of 
the concert planning. Two people alone could not take care 
of an entire concert, so different people were in charge of 
different things. There was a lot of team work involved in 
this project, but overlooking it all was Mr. Marron, making 
sure the ends were all tied together. 

The hours involved are immeasurable. About 20 students 
worked to get things set up; some were not even members of 
Student Government. Harry Chapin's performance was com- 
mendable, but nothing compared to Student Government's. 
It was a hard job, well done. Thanks, Government!

After the recent fire in Work Hall, many people are asking 
just what is legal and what is illegal. Illegal items are cooking 
or heating appliances, multiple sockets, candles or any flam- 
mable or burning material, weights and dart boards, refrigera- 
tors not approved by the College, and air-conditioners. It is 
true that all these items have been approved as safe by the 
manufacturer, but the electrical system in the dorms would 
not be able to support all these things. What it basically 
comes down to is common sense. Use it right and there 
should be no problem.

by Rick Lewis 

Published at the request of a friend of mine, the article 
entitled "A Day Truly Forgotten" may conuin some ideas 
which are very importafit to many people; however, I must 
disagree with its context. The government of the United 
States of America was founded under several precepts, one of 

• which is the separation of church and state. Although part of 
the Pledge of Allegiance contains the phrase, "one nation, 
under God," and every one of our currency pieces shows the 
sentence, "In God we trust," it should not be construed that 
the Houses of Congress should spend their time preparing and 
approving such documents as that. The Government is NOT a 

' vehicle of the church, and I am truly disappointed with those 
Congressmen and Senators who allowed such a resolution 
that is so irrelevant to the business of Government to travel 
the entire way through the legislative process when numerous 
potentially valuable bills go literally untouched due to a 
"lack of time". Neither mine nor anyone else's religious 
beliefs should be so reflected in any document of our 

, Government. 

Dear Editor, 


On March 29, 1980, DVC's Ayrshire herd was officially 
classified by an Ayrshire Breed Association classifier. The 
results were: one excellent (90 pts.), 5 very good (87-88 pts.), 
2 good plus (84 pts.). 

DVC AIbi Polka is the College's first excellent (90 pts.) 
Ayrshire. She also has a high production record at 4yrs.,5 
mos., in 342 days of 21,164 lb. of milk, 13.8% fat and 799 
lb. fat. 

Special thanks goes to our herdsmen, Carl Oxenrider and 
Dave Bradley, and several students for helping prepare the 
animals for classification. 


Dr. lames Harner 

Supt. of Dairy 

Dear Editor: 

I am a firm believer in the idea that the "college experi- 
ence" ought to be more than just a matter of attending 

classes and passing examinations. With that in mind, I've been 
disappointed to see the low level of student support some of 
our traditional student organizations (including Student 
Government!) have garnered on our campus. Not being a 
slave to tradition I've wraclwd my brain to Uy to think of 
new, nontraditional student organizations that might win a 
greater level of support. I've tried to look at what students 
are doing and think of ways of organizing that youthful 
energy to meet common interests. I believe we have an 
enormous reservoir of grassroots support for an "I don't 
give a damn" club. Such a club could offer something special 
for a number of members of our present student body. For 

1. Those who refuse to walk on pathways but find it 
more gratifying to trample lawns; 

2. Those who leave doors and windows open on cold 
days, presumably to see whether or not we can heat 
the whole outdoors; 

3. Those who throw beer bottles and assorted other 
garbage out of windows (sometimes while the windows 
are still closed); 

4. Those who believe lawn areas on our campus are main- 
tained for the expressed purpose of turf surfing; 

5. Those who find it is easier to cut pages out of a 
Library book for future reference than it is to photo- 
copy them. 

Think of the possibilities! There could be littering con- 
tests, prizes for the room able to attract the largest roach 
infesution, cries of "Surf's Up!" on the baseball field, and 

Seriously, folks, this is your campus. For many of you it 
is, literally, your home-away-from-home. And I know many 
of you think it ought to be nicer than it is. But it won't get 
that way unless we all pitch in and think about how we, as 
individuals, are willing to behave with respect to it. We can 
make DVC a more pleasant place to live! But, if the Main- 
tenance, Residence Life, and Campus Maintenance Depart- 
ments have to spend all of their time patching up damage, 
they have little, if any, time or resources to put toward 
improving the situation. Think about it! You are paying for 
that repair service! And that repair gets more and more 
expensive all the time. The College has limited resources. 
Would you rather see those resources put into patching lawns 
or buying books for the Library? Is it better to spend money 
on trash pick-up or on band uniforms? Think about it! Maybe 
the next time you see somebody cutting across a patch of 
lawn you ought to tell him where it's at: "Hey, bud! Get off 
my lawn!" 


Dr. Mertz 

Dear Editor, 

I am a male, and I live in one of DVC's not-so-plush 
dormitories. Up til now I've had no gripes about the people 
that I live with in the dorm; but now I have a gripe. 

It appears that throughout the dorms a recent rash of 
stealing has l>ecn going on. I have not been robbed, but a few 
of my friends have, and being a member of the Collegian 
staff, I think I will point out what I feel about this stealing. 

Over Easter break a friend of mine had his room broken 
into. He and his roommate both had various records stolen. 
I've heard of school rings, cameras and even up to $200 being

Last Wednesday evening, approximately 30 students 
attended an interview and resume conference in Goldman 
Hall. The guest speakers at the seminar were Laura Clack, 
personnal administrator for Cartex Co., and Eleanor Harding, 
personnel manager for Wilson and Sons Pump Co. 

All students in attendance picked up a lot of useful infor- 
mation, which will surely help them, come job hunting time. 
The speakers stressed the importance of doing research before 
every interview, taking as many interviews as you can (prac- 
tice makes perfect), and making a follow-up phone call after 
each interview. Some more lips that were given are: write a 
thank-you note after every interview; give a range rather than 
a figure when asked about salary requirements; and get a 
commitment from the interviewer about when you will be 
hearing from them. 

Special thanks go to the two guest speakers, as well as 
Mr. West, who chaired the conference, and Hank Fox, BAS 
president, who was responsitrfe for organizing the conference.

noticed a variety of "words" that owe their origin to Del

think of what runs through the minds of the folks at home. 
If they aren't shocked by the grades ("My gosh, Martha, 
Junior finally got a C"), they are stymied by our lingo. 
Imagine them seeing BOM, Top, Dirt Fert, POM, Anat A

^sume you start the year with four pairs of mice. Assume 
that mice produce young 60 days after birth and every 60 
days after that. After one year, you have 15,625 pairs of 
31 ,250 individual mice. Six months more at this rate and the 
number reaches nearly four million. Four million mice 
stretched nose to tail (say 7" per moust) works out to be 
450 sutute miles, which is as far as frcMn Mfred, New York, 
to Washington, D.C., via Salem, W.Va. (give or take a mouse 
or two). 

In the 1 880's, the U.S. Ambassador to China returned to 
the U.S. from China with 28 Chinese pheasants, known to us 
today as the pheasant Eleven years later the first hunting 
season was held for these birds. 500,000 were killed. These 
birds can really reprochjce. 

Studies of ear-tagged bears taken by hunters in New York 
state have revealed an amazing ability of the animals to put 
on weight - as much as two to four pounck a day during the 
summer. One bear pined 92 lbs. In a 24-day period, and he 
wasn't even In a feedlot The farmers would sure love to 
know how that works. 

in last week's Did You Know, It was printed that the 
largest whitetail buck ever killed weighed 705 lbs. This, 
unfortunately, b not true - the actual weight was 405 lbs.

UM Thursday, the Delaware Valley College Track team 
defeated host Albright 55Vi-33H but lost to Susquehanna 
91-55H. Mark Tankersley was the only double-winner for the 
Aggies, Uking the high and intermediate hurdles. Two other 
DVC men garnered first places with Jim Parsons winning the 
mile run and Gary Walters Uking the shot put competition. 
Sprinter Steve Lilly took two second places in the 100- and 
220-yard dashes. The javelin was the only event where DVC 
took a first and second place with Bill Colenun and Warren 
Robertson. The split now puts the track record at 4-2. This 
season's last regularly scheduled home meet was on Wednes- 
day with the Aggies hosting Urslnus and Haverford.

The Aggie Golfers now sport a 4-1 overall record and had 
three matches this week to prepare for the May 28th Middle 
Atlantic Conference Championship Match. 

baseball manages 
Only one win 

Coach Frank Wolfgang attributes the slide of his team's 
performance this week to poor pitching and errors. The Aggies 
lost two consecutive doubleheaders and split one this week. 
On Wednesday a powerful Upsala team demonstrated why 
they are undefeated and overpowered the Aggies 13-3 and 
8-6. On Saturday the "Colonels" of Wilkes riddled the Aggie 
pitching 7-2 and 10-2. And finally on Sunday at F.D.U.- 
Madison, the Aggies split, losing 10-9 and winning 8-S. The 
disastrous week puts the overall record at 12-10 and 7-8, 
excluding the pre-season trip. 

The Aggies played at Muhlenberg on Wednesday and a 
make-up doubleheader at Susquehanna today. 


Last Friday the Lady Aggies travelled to Holy Family and 
lost a frustrating game 8-7. Earlier in the week the Lady 
Aggies lost to a powerful Widener team 1 2-9. The overall 
Lady Aggies record stands at 1-2 and they hosted Muhlenberg 
on Tuesday and travel to Moravian today.

Dear Editor: 

On Sunday, April 13th, the Chorale performed at Wash- 
ington's Crossing. The Recorder Consort, comprised of 
students and faculty members, traveled with us. Several 
American folk songs were Included in the ^ogram. After the 
concert we all got together at a member's house for refresh- 
nrwnts. We perform next on A-Day, and then that evening at 
the Solebury Farmers' Club. This is always one of our 
favorite places because the audience is so friendly, and the 
covered dish buffet is so good! 

If you enjoy singing, and have ever conddered joining the 
Chorale, we are a small group, and could use your voice. We 
do several performances a year: a Christmas Concert with the 
Band, Mercer Museum, Founders' Day, A-Day, and the 
Farmers' Club. In the past we have also sung at Pine Run, 
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Our Lady of Czestochowa, and 
have done a Spring Concert. A picnic is usually held in the 
Fall, and a banquet in the spring. Plans to go on tour are 
being made for next year. Won't you please Join us on A-Day, 
Saturday, at 1 :00 o'clock. 



All Del Val students planning to enroll In Summer School 
are not officially registered until they complete an applica- 
tion which is available in the Evening Session Office.

Dear Editor, 

On this past A-Day weekend, we were supposedly enter- 
tained by WAPO; however, their attitude toward the rights of 
others wasn't very entertaining. Now, don't get me wrong. I 
think a concert was a good idea, but disregarding rights of 
others wasn't. For a couple of examples: 

1. Friday night, about 12:00 midnight, a young lady called 
up WAPO and asked them to turn it down because she 
had to show the next morning. Instead of turning it down, 
they cranked it up till 2:00 a.m. (which wasn't right). 

2. At about 8:00 p.m. on Saturday night, some jerk comes 
on and says, "Due to circumstances beyond your control 
we will continue to play. "-Jjyho the heH is he?! There are 
a lot of people on campus vdio wanted the music turned 
down. In fact, I believe, a majority. I enjoy rock 'n' roll, 
but my sanity is more precious than the pounding beat of 
rock at 1:00 a.m. in the morning. 

Therefore, I think that before another "concert" is broad- 
cast, a set of rules should be made to respect the rights of 
others. After all, you D.J.'s who blasted the music Into the 
night wouldn't want someone to pound on your door while 
you were trying to sleep the next morning, would you? All in 
all, a little more common courtesy could have been shown to 
the whole student body. 


Tired and Deafened 
Editor's note: 

I wholeheartedly agree with this analysis. Also, WAPO 
became terribly obnoxious during A-Day festivities, with the 
general public to witness. 

A one- or two-hour concert (for the students) should not 
be objectionable, provided it is well publicized so that those 
who don't want to be disturbed may go elsewhere or know 
that it will be over in a couple of hours. An entire weekend, 
saturated with someone else's poor taste in music being 
blared over the entire campus, Is something for which WAPO 
should hang their heads in shame.

Dear Editor, 

In reference to yours and C.P.'s articles: 

I have found that this dispute between Ag and Business 
Majors is a big thing on this campus. Because of it, there are 
many uneasy feelings between people. I believe that our 
school newspaper shouldn't antagonize the issue. 

Also, what gives you the idea you're ahead of the game? 
Are you insinuating that you're better than they are (Business 
Majors)? I'm sorry, my friend, haven't you read the Bible 


- Meaning, no one is better than anyone else; we are here 
to help each other grow. 

God Bless You 
Editor's note: 
Oh, my God! 

We try to print all letters that are fit to print. I am dis- 
appointed that we haven't heard anything from the Chem 
and Bio Majors yet on this subject. 

Rick Lewis 

To the Editor, in response to the letter written by Richard 
Cox, in your April 1 1 th issue. 
Mr. Cox, 

I feel that your letter of April 1 1th was in bad taste and 
was based on several "misconceptions" on your part. 

The letter by Cornelia Prundeanu was intended as a 
morale booster for the general population of Business majors 
who continually suffer harassment concerning the lack of 
difficulty in the Business curriculum. It was NEVER intended 
to be insulting to anyone. 

In regard to your statement about being able to pass an 
Economics course with an A or B by just reading the book, I 
challenge you or anyone to pass any course, in any major, by 
just reading the book. You mention the importance of experi- 
ence; I think it is understood that experience is just as 
important as book-learning, if not more so. That's why this 
school requires that all students complete an employment 
program, to glean the benefits of on-the-job experience. 

As you noted. Lab skills must be practiced to be learned, 
just as Business skills must be practiced. The difference is 
that the majority of Business skills can be practiced in the 
mind, whereas just the opposite is true for Lab type skills. 
Those Business skills that require Lab practice are set up that 
way. That's right. Marketing Research and Management 
Information systems are Lab courses and are mandatory for 
all Business majors. 

Concerning your remark about "being at the head of the 
game", in your attempt to prove the subservience of Business 
majors on the Farming industry, you have proved just the 
contrary. Business majors provide expertise in Marketing, 
Accounting, Programming, and many, many other areas . . . 
areas most farmers know little or nothing about. Therefore, I 
must insist that it is you who needs us, and not the other 
way around! 

I hope this letter has cleared up any misconceptions you 
have concerning C.P.'s letter of two weeks ago. Also, let's not 
forget that we all have a common goal - to get an education 
and to utilize that education toward the improvement of our

Dear Editor: 

On Missing a Friend — 

I will remember for some time to come the sadness and 
shock on hearing of George Moran's stroke. I waited anxious- 
ly to hear of his recovery; thinking that this probably would 
be a slow and tedious process. Then the subsequent shock of 
reading of George's death in the local newspaper. 

My heart reaches out to his family, whom I am sure will 
miss him dreadfully! His beautiful disposition would have to 
be missed! 

My co-workers and I, here at the College, feel that George 
Moran was a real gentleman, who helped each and every one 
of us as the need arose. He was a gentle, humorous and loving 

We have lost a dear friend and associate; and one who, 
I'm afraid, cannot be replaced.

Dear Editor: 

(In response to recent letters to Editor by C. Prundeanu and 
R. Cox.) 

judging from letters recently published in this newspaper, 
one may conclude that beneath the seemingly calm facade of 
student relations there boils a bitter and intense rivalry be- 
tween students of the various majors. The recent statements 
by Miss Prundeanu and Mr. Cox over which major is best are 
reminiscent of the insecure "loudmouths" who boast, "My 
Dad is better than your dad," in the sixth grade. 

Personally, I can't find any justice in choosing a major on 
the basis of past records of alumni. I thought that one chose 
his/her major on the basis of personal self interest. If that is 
the case, then isn't each individual entitled to study which- 
ever field he desires, without having to justify that decision 
to the world? After all, we should not measure ourselves by 
what major we study or group we belong to, but rather by 
what kind of people we are individually. 

Doubtless, in every major there are bound to be success- 
ful individuals and also failures in every graduating class. 
Should we not spend our time here enriching ourselves both 
mentally and morally to prepare ourselves for the world 
beyond graduation? There is no way any school in the world 
can decide what is best for you. That is your responsibility 
to yourself. Hopefully, your chosen major will supplement 
your personal self interest and, if it does, your time at DVC 
will not be wasted. 

Let's forget the boastfulness. You don't have to prove 
anything to anyone except yourself. Agriculture and business 
are among the greatest professions in America. We are all 
proud of our majors if we are proud of ourselves. 


Mark Goodson 

You're both wrong — Agronomy is the best major. 

To Students, Faculty and Administration: 

With the school year coming to a rapid close, and this 
being our last issue of the semester, I wish to express my 
gratitude to those who have helped me with the Collegian 
throughout the past two years. I would like to believe that 
we have helped to establish a new peak in the credibility, 
responsibility, and integrity of the campus' student news- 

We have not gone without our hardships through this 
period, but those we encountered were faced head-on and 
resolved to the best of our means. We have also not gone 
without our moments of joy, but joy is fleeting, and work 
had to continue if more joy was to be felt. 

I have very much enjoyed serving as Editor of the paper, 
as well as being a DVC student during this time, and feel a 
sense of fulfillment that I believe few people get to experi- 
ence at this stage of life. My special thanks go to Dr. Ziemer 
and Mr. McClelland for their fine advice, but extra special 
thanks go to all of the students who read our publication 

Additionally, I would like to take this opportunity to 
wish the very best of luck to all of the members of the Class 
of '80 in their future endeavors. It is hoped that we can leave 
a little bit of ourselves behind and take a little bit of DVC 
with us, as together we are an unbeatable team. 

Very sincerely, 
Richard E. Lewis '80

On April 17th, from 9:30 to 1 1:30a.m., the )amesWork 
Gymnasium was the scene of Delaware Valley College's ninth 
annual career conference. The conference was sponsored by 
the College's Business Administration Department and fea- 
tured speakers from such diverse fields as real estate, banking, 
insurance and data processing. A total of IS careers were 

Approximately 100 students, including students from 
Central Bucks West and Archbishop Wood School for Girls, 
attended the conference, it was set up so that students could 
hear the business people explain the main aspects of their 
choseh profession and also speak informally with the repre- 
sentatives of the careers that interested them mosL 

Following the conference, faculty members from the DVC 
Business Department, the career representatives, and students 
from the Business Administration Society had a luncheon in 
the faculty lounge of the David Levin Dining Hall. James 
McFadden, managing editor of The Daily Intelligencer, was 
the guest speaker. Mr. McFadden spoke about the business 
aspects of communications and public relations, and the 
increasing importance of these two areas to business people. 

The career conference was an excellent opportunity for 
students to learn about a variety of business careers, and for 
people from the outside to become acquainted with Delaware 
Valley College.

Despite miserable weather conditions, A-Day went on 
with Its usual success. A good crowd braved a raw, drizzly 
weekend to observe the many competitions, demonstrations, 
and exhibits which had been in the preparation stages for 
many months. As is traditional by now, the campus was once 
again covered with bright tents vending enormous quantities 
of food, the College's prize animals were on display on the 
front lawn, and streams of curious people made their way 
from building to building. 

Once again, A-Day turned out to be a great weekend of 
relaxation, fun, and partying for all. The cleanup took place 
in rain and colc^ also, as (kdicated students took to the task 
of putting away everything for next year. Now all that 
remains is a tattered, trampled campus, and a new crop of 
plans for next time.

successful. The Collegian would like to thank the Resident 
Life Office and the RA's who ran the selection with very 
little inconvenience to the students and a fair process of 
selecting the rooms.

In their last scheduled meet of the season, the Aggie 
Thinclads (73) swept a triangular meet with Ursinus (55) and 


The Delaware Valley Colle^ Golf team finished their 
1980 season with an overall 8-2 record and almost as many 
cancellations due to the weather. 

On Monday the Aggies placed eleventh in the M.A.C. 
match which was played in the pouring rain. Senior captain 
Mark Werkiser also placed eleventh overall in the match. The 
8-2 record marks improvement over veteran head coach Ned 
Linta's 9-5 record last season. 


On Wednesday the Aggies travelled to Muhlenberg and 
dropped a single game to the Mules 8-4. In a re-scheduled 
doubleheader the Aggies split with Susquehanna on Friday 
winning 4-1 in extra innings and losing 8-4. The 1-2 week 
lowered the overall Aggie record to 13-12 and 8-1 since the 
Florida trip. Their next regularly scheduled game is a double- 
header at Moravian on May 3. 


The Lady Aggies under rookie coach Diane Swartz 
finished with an overall 3-3 record and 2-1 league record. 
Last Friday (April 25) the Ladies, paced by Bernie Romano's 
two doubles and a single, posted a 12-9 victory over Mora- 
vian. Denise Yeager, a promising freshman, was the winning 
pitcher and Kathiann Held, a sophomore, added three R.B.I.'s 
with a triple.

Sharon Chamberlin and Paiti McKeown are currently very 
popular among the members of the Equestrian Team because 
they have accomplished something that not too many team 
members have or will accomplish. They are going to Nationals 
which will be held in New York at Stoneybrook Farm on 
May 3rd. 

Qualifying for Nationals is not a very easy task. First, you 
must earn at least 28 points by riding in local ISHA horse 
shows which are sponsored by other colleges. If the 28 points 
are earned, you then ride in regionals against the best riders 
in the region. If you place first or second in regionals, you 
qualify to go to Nationals to compete against the best in the 

Sharon Chamberlin, a senior, took a first place in novice 
on the flat. Sharon is one of the team's best riders, earning 1 2 
first, 5 seconds, 1 third and 3 fourths in her one year on the 
team. She also won the title of HigR Point Rider twice. 

Patti McKeown, a freshman, won a first place riding in 
advanced walk, trot, canter. Patti, who is also a very con- 
sistent rider, has won 3 firsts, 3 seconds and 2 thirds. Kathy 
Sucharski and Laurie Jackson also went to regionals. 

The best of luck to Sharon and Patti on May 3rd!! 

SENIOR PROFILES by Martha Cehnnger 

Editor's Note: The Seniors have accomplished a great deal in their four years here. We would like to recognize some of them in 
this Senior Spotlight. 


Who was that running by? 

Linda Budrewicz, better known as Linda Bud, can be seen just about anywhere on campus, 
usually. This year Linda is a senior and upon graduation she plans to enter vet school, and 
eventually practice large animal medicine. 

While here at college, Linda partook of many activities, some of which were Apiary Club, band, 
block and bridle, social house for four years. Dairy Society secretary, Captain field hockey, and 
DTA. To her, her greatest achievement during her college career has been gettirig to know a lot of 
people and learning to think. 

Linda has never regretted coming to DVC, for she feels that any school is what you make It. 
Linda certainly has contributed much to DVC in the last four years. 

With graduation coming her feelings on leaving are mixed. She can't wait to leave wfwn the 
work is piling up. Yet it will be difficult to leave the friends she has met Still, she is looking for- 
ward to graduation, for it will bring something different to do and a new challenge. 


The girl with the smile describes Lynn Hagerman very well. Lynn is u«ially smiling, which 
could be because she likes it here at DVC. She finds the faculty-student relation (at least in the 
An. Hus. Department) is very good and the student body overall is very friendly. Furthermore, 
the small campus is very appealing. 

During her stay here at DVC, Lynn has been involved with many clubs and has been a class 
officer for four years. When Lynn isn't busy with studies and activities, she enjoys such things as 
animals, cake decorating, flower arranging, guitar playing and intramural sports. 

Presently, she works on a dairy farm and plans to continue there for a time after graduation. 
She would like to get into research sometime and maybe raise some sheep. 

As a farewell to everyone, she has this comment: She feels that for people to enjoy college it is 
a "plus" to be involved in outside activities. They make college more worthwhile. 


Maryetta Bartlett is an extremely talented and dedicated individual in the field of fioriculture. 
Her talent has brought her the District 3-B FTD scholarship and first prize in the Student Fall 

This is Maryetta's last year at DVC. During the past four years she has been active in the OH 
Club. She has served as co-chairman and chairman of the Flower Show, vice president and 
president of the Floral Society, public officer for DTA, ICC representative, and on the A-Day 
Committee in charge of Awards. Maryetta has also participated in the flower exhibit and intra- 
mural sports. She was honored this year by being named to Who's Who among Students in 
American Universities and Colleges. Maryetta likes it here at DVC. One reason for this is her 
experience with the people in Floriculture since they are all great to work with. Also, Maryetta 
feels DVC gives the students a good background and a chance to show their ability through A-Day. 
When asked of her thoughts on graduation, she said she is ready to go out in the working world. 
., Of course, she will miss the people here, but she is tired of studying. After graduation, she plans to 
- mm work in her ()arents' florist shop and greenhouse full-time. 
Maryetta would like to thank all the people she has worked with and under the last four years, with a special thanks to her 
professors for all their helpfulness and understanding. 


Nancy Wenger is perhaps one of the best known members of this year's graduating class, and 
with just reason. Over the past four years she has been involved in a great deal. She has been a 
member of the Equestrian Team for the last two years, treasurer of Block and Bridle last year, 
DTA vice president, sophomore class secretary, junior class and senior class President, N.E. Student 
Affiliate of Animal and Dairy Science Treasurer. 

Looking back over the last four years, her greatest achievement has been lasting that long. 
Looking forward to the future she would like to become a Vo-Ag teacher or get into farming. One 
of the highlights of her college career has been receiving the American Society of Animal Sciences 
scholarship when she was a sophomore and again when she was a senior. 

Nancy has mixed emotions about leaving. She has enjoyed it here and will miss her friends, but 
she is also excited about starting something new. 

in closing, she would like to say thanks to the Animal Science Department because she feels 
they gave her the best education possible. 


|H^M^ Rick Lewis is mild-mannered and full of ideas. He is one of the three chemistry majors 

Hl^^ j graduating this year. After graduation he plans to go to the University of Delaware where he has 
been accepted for an advanced degree, Ph D. in Chemistry. There he has also been granted a 
teaching assistantship. In the future, he seeks a research management position, but pursuit of a 
political office is a definite possibility and not out of the question. 

While at college, his activities have included Block and Bridle as a freshman, Chem Club 
sophomore, junior and senior years. Editor of the Collegian junior and senior years, and AIBS 
senior year. This year he was the announcer at A-Day. Also, he was honored this year by being 
named to Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges and to the National 
Register of Outstanding College Graduates. 

At the present time he is employed by the college as a Computer Room Supervisor. He 
developed the security system for the school's computer network as well as developing adminis- 
trative programs. 

When he isn't busy with the computer or his courses, he enjoys photography and lists as his 
greatest achievement, going through college. 

Rick relishes leadership positions and has an underlying desire to be in control. When in control, he is fair and consistent in 
his policies. He likes to consider himself diplomatic and an able negotiator. At times, he will procrastinate but it is usually in 
personal matters. 

Rick likes what DVC stands for and feels it is a very interesting philosophy in itself. After graduation he intends to be an 
active Alumnus. While here, he found the small class sizes enabled an intimate relation with faculty members to develop and 
this is a definite plus to the educational process. He feels the chemistry program should be a 5-year major as opposed to four 
years, and the admission standards should be raised. Rick also believes the athletic programs should be cut back to intramural 
rather than intercollegiate, since there are no physical education majors. This would allow more money for academic facilities. 
Rick thinks a one-credit journalism course should be offered to aid in the publication program. Although he has never lived in a 
dorm, he feels the dorms should be modernized to make them a more appealing place to reside. 

The most fun experience he has had has been living in Key West, Florida, for eight months; and the most fulfilling experience 
has been going to college here at DVC. 


Well, Seniors, it's that time - time to say "So long!" It's been good knowing you through the good times and the bad times. 

But now's the time to say so long! Remember us at DVC when you're out in the world, and stop in to visit if you have the 

But now's the time to say so long! It's been fun knowing you, and learning from you. The times were great and not to be 

But now's the time to say so long, not good-bye, for one never knows where our paths will lead and with a little hope, a little 
faith, and a little luck our paths will meet again. 

So, so long for now. It's been fun. 


On Monday, May 5th, a meeting was held for those 
interested in becoming members of the Drama Club next fall. 
The Drama Club has been in existence for several years and 
would like to become a more involved organization. The club 
would not only pijt on productions, but it would also take 
trips to Philadelphia to see professional productions and 
would even perform at other schools. 

To achieve these goals, we need students who are 
interested in acting, designing and building sets, scenery, 
costumes, make-up and things such as publicity. If you think 
you might be even slightly interested in any form of 
participation, contact Dolores Donlon, Barness 114, or 
Mr. Gavin. Your support will be appreciated.

On Thursday, April 22nd, the Business Administration 
seniors attended a special seminar on international trade. The 
guest speaker was Mr. Fred Prozzillo of EMGE Aviation and 
Marine Products, Langhorne, Pa. 

Mr. Prozzillo spoke on the challenges of the international 
market to a firm in the safety and survival equipment field. 
He related several case histories to demonstrate the need for 
flexibility and a sound reputation for fair dealing in this 
complex marketplace. Much of the discussion pertained to 
the financial aspects of selling abroad, specifically the use of 
letters of credit. Mr. Prozzillo brought with him several of 
EMGE's products so that the students would have a better 
concept of the variety of goods beingsold.

- Did you know that the sable, the world's most prized 
furbearer, has been brought back from near extinction? The 
pelt of one sable, about the size of a muskrat, sells for up to

- Did you know that the government has been spending 
millions of dollars draining prime waterfowl habitat so 
farmers can grow crops? The Dept. of Agriculture then buys 
the crops from them. The government also pays farmers not 
to grow crops. In 1971 we paid farmers more than 2.75 
billion dollars to idle 37 million acres of surplus cropland. 
Where does the stupidity end? 

Now the U.S. is contemplating draining its last remaining 
breeding grounds (the Stark Weather Project) in North 
Dakota. The U.S. has got to find a better way of directing 
its funds and ideas.
