The Aggies opened tJwir 1992 
season on a dry note, blanked by 
Wagner College 1 2-0. Some say it 
was the practice game they never 
had, denied by NCAA rules. This 
was compounded by a new coach 
with new players and their new 
offensive and defensive schemes. 
It will take some time to get the 
kinks out of the new system and 
time for tlw players to learn their 

However, nothing can be taken 
away from Wagner's play on Sat- 
urday. They dominated on both 
sides of the ball and never allowed 
DVC to mount an attack.

The Beautiful 


By Bruce Eaton 

Associate Editor 

There is a prehistoric maxim 
that proclaims "beauty is in 
the eye of the beholder." In 
our age, it appears that Qndy 
Crawford is the epitome of 
beauty: long, lean, almost 

However, long before 
womai or men were paraded 
through a crowded room and 
judged according to their 

I^ysical attributes, farm ani- 
mals were the main attraction 
of any agriculture show. They 
were and are judged as se- 
verely ami minutely as any 
hopeful Miss America canex- 
pect to be, and it is the goal of 
Dr. Hummer and the show 
crew of the Dairy Society to 
make tl^ir animals into the 
stars of the " ^cultural cir-

The lease agreement die col- 
lege requires the resi^nt stu- 
dents to sign is unfair and may 
not be legal. Many students 
are refusing to sign them and 
others have signed without 
reading them. How do you fit 
into (his category and what is 
going tti happen? 

This year the lease agree- 
ment which students have been 
signing for well over the past 
three years has become a con- 
troversial topic on campus. 
Throughout the lease agree- 
ment there arc numerous state- 
ments that the college will not 
be liable for any accidents for 
any reason. Some students, like 
John Hirth, are saying they 
won't sign it because "for the 
money we pay, we shouldn't 
have to sign our hfe away, 
especially under the poor dorm 
conditions which we have to 
live." Student George Glattes' 
opinion differs slightly as he 
replies, "I'll sign it because it 
is not a legitimate document 
and would not hold up in court 
anyway." This issue is raising 
a few questions and concerns 
which must be addressed by 
the administration immedi- 

One of the leading questions 
is, is it a legal document and 
will it hold up in court? Ac- 
cording to Mr. Buggeln, the 
assistant to the presid&it, sec- 
tions of this document are ab- 
solutely not enforceable in 
couit Even so, the landlord, in 
this case the college, can still 
require the lessee, or the stu- 
(tents, to sign the agreement in 
orderto reside on the premises. 
Although many students 
would quickly disagree, the 
college is not trying to take 
advantage of the students. Dr. 
Antheil, Dean of Enrollment 
and Retention, says this is an 
older document which has been 
used for years and has never 
been questioned before. Addi- 
tionaUy , this document was not 
meant to make the CoUege free 
andclear of liable responsibili- 
ties, but now that the inteipre-

The means to this end be-

before an animal is shown to

nurtured to exude health

and inoculation. This care

Karen Byrne 

By Jen Misko 

Business Manager 

It *s the place, the place 
with all those wonderful 
stores of knowledge and 
inspiration. Where the 
ess^ce of binding and 
paper permeates the build- 
ing. Have you guessed 
yet? Of course, it's the 
library, the place which 
Ms. Karen Byme calls 
home at DVC. 

Ms. Byme is the 
College's Referaice/Insti- 
tutional Services Librar- 

Karen's primary focus is 
to teach us, both students 
and professors, how to 
access the most valuable 
and the most helpful 
resounds availaUe in the 
library in a reasonable 
amount of time. Sheworics 
one-on-one with the en- 
tire College community 
and is always willing to 
assist you in your library 

Ms. Byme hails from Spo- 
kane, Washington. She has 
a Bachelorofthe Arts and 
a Masters Degree in Library 
Science. Karen came to the 
east coast about five years 
ago after manying her 

husband, also a librarian 
Among her many interests, 
Karen is, of course, an avid 
reader. She enjoys the writ- 
ings of many but expressed 
particular interest in the 
writings of John McFec mcl 
Ray Bradbury. The hert) gar- 
den, here on campus, is also a 
favorite haunt of hers She 
loves to garden and sometimes 
volunteers to help out at the 
heib garden. 

Karen expressed some con- 
cem about the fear students' 
sometimes have about ap- 
proaching the librarians for 
help. She had a specific mes- 
sage for the College commu- 
nity to keep in mind. Re- 
member, the librarians are 
there to assist you in any 
way tfiey possiWycan. Karai 
said, " Please, don't be afraid 
to ask questions." Ms. Byme 
feelsthat the only dumb ques- 
tion is the one that is not 
asked. But in tum, be 
prepared to answer some 
simple questions about your 
topic of research or interest. 
This process is called a 
reference interview. It is 
conducted by the librarian to 
help you murow down your 

Mri. BryiM poM« In th« Reading 
Room In Um Krauskopf Library 

topic, create a focus or a 
starting point, and allow the 
Ubrarian to get an idea of what 
resource material would serve 
you best. 

A Better Place to Be 

Karen enjoys the uniqueness 
and beauty at Delaware Val- 
ley. She is very fond of 
activities like A-Day and 
Homecoming and always at- 
tends these events. I asked 
Karen if she had any advice 
for the students here at 
Delaware Valley and indeed 
she had three super tidbits of 
wisdom. First, leam how to 
leam. Second, pursue your in- 
terests. Third, always, yes, al- 
ways take time to smell the 
dust on the books! 

Many dark and alluring se- 
crets are luridng withui the 
walls of the Krauskopf li- 
brary. Stop by the library soon 
and explore the treasures, and 
in your travels don't forget to 
wave a cheery hello to Ms. 
Karoi Byme.

Environmental Tips: 

By Mame Sugarman 

Staff Writer 

1 . Place your used coffee grounds on a plant hanging in your dorm - it will enrich the soil. 

2. Tum off the water while you are shaving or bmshing your teeth - gallons will be saved that 

3. Use rechargeable batteries. Though they cost more initially, they will pay themseWes off in 
the money you will save constantly buying replacements, hi addition, disposal of regular batteries 
causes n\a-off and witter pollution due to the battery acids.

Where Is The Alternative Scene? 

By Michelle Slayhaugh 

Featurts Writer 

As a freshman ambling through the DVC cam^Mis, 1 typically hear Led 2^ppelin, The Grateful 
E)ead, Lynard Skynard, or some other tired sixties/seventies group pouring from open doim 
windows. Tight jeans and tye-dyed t-shirts represent customary Del Val garb. Instead of heading 
for a tragically hip club on the weekends, most seem to be party hoiking. 

Have I entered some bizarre time warp? Is this not the nineties?... Granted, the afore-mentioned 
music, attire, and entertairmient possesses its own merit; but society must progress, not regress. I 
invite you to attempt an alternative life-style. 

Altemativ^rogressive music that was once an otecure entity is quickly becoming mainstream, 
thanks to groups such as Nirvana and The Red Hot CMi Peppers. Through the Lollapalooza II tour, 
this summer, many groups, including Ministry, were thrust before tte eyes and ears of ttousands, 
awaiting judgement. NiTV is even surprisingly suRwrtivc of the progressive movement. Music 
Television consistently features cutting edge videos like "SmeUs Like Teen Spirit", "Jesus Built 
My Hotrod", and "Un(ter the Bridge" during regular programming hours. Sunday nights for 120 
Minutes nothing but alternative videos can be viewed. Still tl» outlets for progressive music are 
ever expanding. 

While music is the key, beyond the door to alternative music lies the "image". Fashion presents 
no factor, oiw simple rule of thumb: wear nothing "trendy"! ! In clubs one may see anything from 
leather-clad punk revivalists and trippy Dee-lite wanna-be's to the omnipresent skaters, wearing, 
as per usual, big, baggy shorts, a t-shirt and Chucks. 

Hair, or lack of it, is acceptable in any length, hei^, or color. Ten-inch pink or puiple mohawks 
are just as common as long, strai^t "I require no maintenance" hair. Once you have established 
a "look", it is time to enter the "clubzone". 

Hot new clubs are constantly opening. Some well known and established venues: The Vault- 
Harrisburg PA, Tracks- Washington D.C., The Paradox- Baltimore MD, and The Trocadero- 
Philadelphia PA. Many clubs are open every evening featuring under/over twenty-one nights and 
live bands. In addition to the regular operational schedule, select venues occasionally host "raves". 
Simply put, a rave is an all-night dance party, headlined by one or two live bands. Guest D.J's from 
otlwr clubs are invited, as well, to each play for a block of the evening. 

An entirely new, exciting world awaits your discovery! So, wake up DVC! Don those Doc 
Martens, shave ttK)se heads, and incite an alternative revolution.

Before the animal can be 
shown it needs to be halter- 
broken, taught to follow in- 
structions while being led. 
The animal must also leam 
grace under pressure, like all 
creatures that expect to per- 
fonn well in front of an audi- 

The animals arrive at the 
showplace two to three days 
prior to the show. They are 
given time to recover from 
the disruptive trip and accli- 
mate to the foreign surround- 
ings. The first task of the 
show crew is to build a "pad" 
of hay for the animal's stay at 
the showplace. The pad must 

be kept clean at all times. 

The show day often begins at 
4 a.m.. Each Holstein must be 
readied for competition aid 
kei^ in a constant state of readi- 
ness. The animals are bathed, 
fed, milked, and styled. The 
"top line" of the animal must 
be set. The topline is a line of 
hairthatruns along the animal's 
spine. This top line serves as 
the foundation for the animal's 
presentation; it is the initial 
brushstroke that establishes an 
animal's body contour. 

Timing is extremely impor- 
tant at this level of competi- 
tion. The animals must be 

milked at the (Proper time to

require constant care; a crew 

member is on duty 1 8-20 hours 
a day. The animals are the

like only children. 

Dr. Plummer stresses the 
crew, but tte crew that remains

produces champions, and all 
deserve a share in the glory.

Dig Beneath The 

By Mame Sugarman 

Staff Writer 

The red flags have long been 
raised, but people turned their 
eyes away. The cry has been 
sounded, but few people listened 
to the extent of the lamentation. 
Those eariy leaders of tlK Green 
Revolution who heeded the 
earth's bestial warnings only 
chipped away at the full-fledged 
environmental problems that we 
are now facing: dwindling en- 
ergy supplies, waste disposal, 
the depletion of the ozone layer, 
pollution- the list could go on for 

In our age of woridly con- 
sciousness, everbody seems to 
jump on the environmental band- 
wagon with an "Imean to do well 
but I don't know where to begin" 
mentality. Procrastination still 
has us chipping away at that same 
piece of maible in order to avoid 
the full impact of what may lie 
beneath the surface. Every crisis 
is an opportunity for change, but 
in this case we must come face- 
to-face with the environmental 
situation before an irrevokable 
crisis arises. 

This election year we, as con- 
cerned citizens, have a special 
say in this matter- our vote. We 
must seize the moment and make 
our vote work to our advantage. 

Unfortunately, problems can 
not be dealt with easily. On the 
local, state, and federal govern- 
ment levels, there is always an 
elaborate network of red tape 
that detracts from the issues and 
focuses on legalities. 

There is a misconceived no- 
tion that every letter written to 
the President or our political rep- 
resentatives will be read and 
taken into serious consideration. 
In many cases, unless we have 
reached a crisis point, those let- 
ters will be bmshed aside until 
they are forgotten. Our elected 
officials have a responsibility to 
find solutions to our environ- 
mental problems. Letter writing, 
most importantiy on the local 
level, will help our representa- 

tives know what concerns are 
on our minds, but efforts at 
reform should not end there. 
We should be actively in- 
volve and concerned with 
becoming the most environ- 
mentally souiKl persons we 
can be. By thai, I mean buy 
products with minimal 
amounts of packaging, car- 
pool and of course recycle. 
Since tiiis ts an election 
year, some candidates may 
be doing the last minute "I'll 
do whatever I can" rush. 
Promises are merely empty 
words; look at privious ac- 
complishments to make an 
educated vote. 
It seems no matter how hard 
we try to correct the environ- 
mental situation, we are al- 
ways attacking it from be- 
hind. After we dump toxins 
from bleaching paper into 
rivers we complain about tl^ 
"No Swimming" and "No 
Fishing" signs that had never 
been there before. We want 
to make our air safe only 
after the opening of a pollut- 
ing factory or oil refinery. 
The cleanup costs more in 
time and energy than simple 
prevention. Use the power of 
the educational systems, the 
media, and the power of the 
pen to correct the present 
while prohibiting any more 
environmental degradation in 
the future. 

All things are intercon- 
nected. By solving one prob- 
lem we begin to elolve an- 
other problem. The earth is 
crying out for help. Take a 
look around, and do your part 
in healing the pains we have 
wrought on our planet. We 
have to dig beneath the sur- 
face to find out what un- 
known envirormiental prob- 
lems lie buried. Who knows? 
Someday we may be sur- 
prised to find that we have 
tiransformed an unpolished 
rock into a masterpiece!

Prices Sky High! 

Dear Editor: 

I am writing this letter be- 
cause of my outrage toward the 
DVC bookstore prices! The 
students are already paying a 
higher tuition for a private in- 
stitution and should not be 
forced to pay such ludicrous 
prices for ^ademic goods. Not 
only do they charge Ux) much 

for the books that we must have, 
but they insult us with the prices 
they are willing to pay back for 
the same books four months 
later. They charge $.98 for one 
pilot ball point pen while K- 
mart sells a twin pack of the 
same model pens for $.77. I 
bought twin pocket portfolios 
at CVS in the King of Prussia 
Mall at a price of five for $ 1 .00. 
In the book store, the identical 
versions of these folders sell 
for $.59 each. The list goes on 

Biggest Freshman 
Class Ever! 

By Caryn Derr-Daugherty 

News Editor 

The Qass of 1996 has been at DVC for exactly 19 days and 
has probably been more recognized thus far than any other 
freshman class in DVC's history. 
Not only are we "the freshman," but we're also the centennial 
class. We will become a very big part in all the activities 
planned to celebrate this milestone, and probably the most 
recognized class in DVC's history. 

The freshman class also has another title- the largest class in 
DVC history. Currently, there are about 495 freshman students 
enrolled here. The break down consists of: 
154 females 
185 males 
156 commuters 
Of these 495 students, 125 are transfers. Also this year, the 
college as a whole has the largest full-time day class enroUment 
in DVC's history. 

We, as the Class of 1996, have come here at a prime time. 
DVC has made some great changes to enhance student's lives 
over the last year or so (see pg. 8). They have also added 
secondary education andcriminal justice courses. These majors 
have spariced an interest in many students. 

Many freshmen usually get pushed aside their first year, but 
not this class! Watch out DVC, this is one class you won't ever 
be able to forget!

Dear Editor: 

I am writing to voice my ap- 
preciation of the final rerwva- 
ticxis that have been oxnpleted 
to tile doim pool tables. About 
four weeks before tiie fall se- 
mester began, tiie pool tables in 
Work and Goldman Halls were 
repaired. The people who dam- 
aged them before did a great 
job. Both tables were damaged 
so badlytl^ypr^tically needed 
to be replaced with a brand new 
table. However, Del Val with 
all its generosity, paid for all of 
the repairs. 

I am a resident at Work Hall 
and very much enjoy shooting 
pool. We enforce strict regula- 
tions in order to jMevent the 
destruction of the pool tables. If 
it h^^ns again, th& persons 
responsible will have to foot the 

Hopefiilly these guidlines will 
encourage students to engage 
in some stimulating pool games, 
rather than the sensless destruc- 
tion of our recreational f^ili- 

Thank you for respecting the 
tables and have a great game!

Del Val Field Hockey 
Routs Cabrinl 


Sports Editor 

Field hockey is more than two teams of eleven players with hockey sticks trying to get a ball 
through enemy territory into the goal. It is more than a game of running, physical endurance, and 
coordination. Even Webster's definition of field hockey seems to be inadequate, for it fails to 
mention the weeks of practice and training required to develop a cunning player. The practices 
are grueling and difficult for both players and coach. 

This hard work and determination paid off for the Lady Aggies as they routed Cabrinl College, 
7- 1 on Wednesday, September the ninth. Offensive efforts were led by (soph.) Sylance Spencer, 
who scored two goals, one within the first two minutes of play. The additional five goals were 
driven in by (jr.) Kate Rynn, (soph.) Diane Yoder, and freshmen Julie Dolan, Kim Patterson, and 
Qier Coleman. Assisting these goals were (sr.) Dawn Papciak, (fr.) Loii Adgalone, and Kim 

Delaware Valley's defense was incredibly stingy, only allowing the ball to cross the midlield

Aggies Shut Out 

(Continued from Front Page) 

The Aggies came out tight, 
and Wagiwr scored on their 
opening drive, taking less than 
three minutes off the game 
clock. WagiKr ran the opening 
kickoff 50 yds. to the DVC 35 
yd. line . The Seahawks ran five 
plays, culminating in a two- 
yard mn by Kite Lockwood. 
Wagner missed the extra point. 

DVC was stymied, stormed 
and stuffed by the Wagner de- 
fensive line. Their total offense 
in the first half was -18 yards. 
The Aggies didnotmake a first 
down and a)mpleted only one 
pass in the half 

Wagner scored the secoixl of 
their two touchdowns in the 
second quarter. The scoring 
drive began with a 43 yd. pass 
completion that took the Sea- 
hawks to the Aggie 1 6 yd. Une. 
The ball was run over the goal 
fourplays later. Theextrapoint 
attempt failed. The drive took 
less than one minute off the 
play clock. DVC was unable to 
mount any offense in their re- 
maining two possessions, go- 
ing four downs and out. 

The Aggies came out a little 
looser in the second half, a sign 
that Manlove had pushed the 

right buttons during half-time. 
Wagner, however, came out of 
the locker-room playing with 
tlKir first-half intensity andhad 
no intention of allowing the 
Aggies back in the game. The 
Aggie defense had tightened- 
up their play, but the offense 
could not drive tlK ball against 
an overpowering defensive 

The Aggies mounted their 
first and only serious scoring 
drive late in the third quarier. 
The Sea.hawks kicked-off after 
a missed field goal. DVC took 
possession on thei r own 20 yd. 
line and drove the ball to the 
Wagner nine yd. line. On third 
down and goal, Norris was 
flushed out of the pocket. He 
threw an errant pass that was 
intercepted and run back 61 
yds. to the DVC 39 yd. line. 
The pass interceptor then 
fumbled the ball while trying 
to pitch it to a teammate and 
DVC recovered the ball on their 
own 39 yd. line. The Aggies 
were unable to mount another 
attack and were forced to punt 
on four downs. 
Wagner ran out the play clock 
fora 12-0 win.

Upcoming Cultural Enrichment 

Fulfill one credit of academic requirement and broaden your cultural perspective by attending 
a variety of events, both on and off campus. 

By Mori Ginsberg 

Date Time 

June 27-Sept 27. 1992 

Th« Gazebo at Laka Archar 

The main entrance to Delaware Valley Q)Uege where 1 teach, 
evenings, was under constniction and I took an alternate I'd never 
before used. It led me down a one lane path just wide enough for 
a car, past a large bam and down a slope where it curved past a small 
lake where clusters of ducks and geese swam side by side as others 
rested on the lush, grassy banks. 

I stopped my car by the bank near the road, checked to make sure 
no cars were behind me and lowered my window as I sat there a few 

I was surrounded by the quacking of ducks and rustling of leaves 
as I noticed, just to my right along the bank, an old gazebo, 
complete with benches around its inside perimeter where students 
might rest or study. 
The utter peacefulness of this spot led me to make what had been 
an alternate entrance — into a MAIN entrance forme from then on. 
Stopping there on the way to classes — having normally come from 
a rather hectic day as an advertising account executive has become 
my way of "winding down" from the day, so I could then "wind 
UP" for my classes — where I could pass on whatever expertise I 
possess to the next generation. 

But, more than becoming an oasis of peaceftilness for me — I 
have begun to look on the lake in a new kind of light. And it all 
centers around the GAZEBO. A simple stmcture Webster defines 
as "A small, open structure, as in a garden, and often commanding 
a wide view." 

The entire lake, with its tall old trees surrounding it, ahnost 
forming a roof of leaves over it, has often reminded me of a house 
of prayer, the leaves, with the waning sunlight filtering through 
them to form intricate patterns and hues much like the light 
streaming through stained glass windows of a church or synagogue. 

Stopping by that lake - 1 am filled with the kind of awe and 
wonder at life, the sheer beauty, the combination of species — 
each at peace with the other and including me of which the Bible 
speaks so often. 

The gazebo, passed by so many eadi day to the point wlwre it 
may be taken for granted - reminds me of an altar in a house of 
worship. A fitting place for prayer. 

And, perhaps best of all when things get rough, when the day gets 
trying as it so often docs for ALL of us in today's frenetic worid 
— I can bring that lake and those ducks and geese and those ageless 
trees and that altar others call a gazebo into my MIND and my 
HEART and my SOUL. 

And when I do — no matter the problem besetting me, I am 
blessed with the same feeling of peace I feel when I am actually 
there, beside the lake. 

I see myself at that altar — tlw gazebo — bathed in that splendor, 
batl^ in ttiat awe and wonder. And as I turn my head to once 
again revel in my sunrmindings -- 1 discern a new meaning in 
Webster's "often commanding a wide view." 

My view extends to life itself. Its tme meaning. Its "wide-* 
significance embracing all creatures great and small. The GAzdx) 
is transformed into a GODzebo - a man-made tribute to the 
surrounding wonders of Lake Archer — to one of the college's 
founders for whom it was nam^ — and to the God who makes 
all things possible.

Record Review 

Generation X-Perfect Hits (Chrysalis) 

By Dan Comtican 

Staff Writer 

Any BiUy Idol fan should 
be required to buy this 
record More than worth- 
while. Gen. X was one of 
the eariy comerstones of 
punk. Their tunes had the 
buzzsaw energy of the day, 
as well as an incredible 
knack for a catchy melody 
line knocking out some true 
anthems- "Wild Youth," 
"Your GeneraUon," "100 
Punks," "Ready, Steady, 
Go," etc.... Also, the band 
possessed one of the few 
tme punk rock guitar gods- 
Bob "Derwood" Andrews; 
check out his flesh-flaying 
solo on "Youth, Youth, 
Youth" for evidence. Their 

second and third albums 
never quite c^^tured the en- 
ergy level of their debut, but 
there were moments which 
included-"Triumphs" and 
the brilliant "Dicing with 
Myself' (later tumed into a 
smash hit bv former Gen X 

singer Billy Idol). A pretty 
definitive collection, except 
I would have included "Pun- 
ning with the Boss Sound" 
which was by far the best 
track from "Valley of the 
DoUs," and which used the 
studio version of "Gimme 
Some Tmth," instead of the 
inferior Peel Sessions take, 
here. A decade and a half 
later, Gen X still my ears.

Hall; A safer 


By Caryn Derr-Daugherty 

News Editor 

Safety, Swurity, Peace of 
Mind. What do all of these 
words have in common? Well, 
they describe the results to be 
obtained by the installation of 
the new security system! 

Berkowitz is the first dorni 
to receive the new security 
alarm system because it is the 
only dorai located in a remote 
location compared to the other 

Residence Life plans to actu- 
ate the several thousand dollar 
system sometime this week. 
Once activated, all residents 
and visitors must use the front 
door as a means of gaining 
access to and from the donii. 
At the present time, it is still 
undecicted whether or not the 
doors will be locked at all times 
or just from 1 2ara tolipm. The 
fmal decision will be made this 

No matter what the decision 
is, disciplinary action will be 
taken against any student acti- 
vating the alarm falsely. A 
minimum fine of $250,00 plus 
further actions wiU be enforced 
by the Dean of Students and 

security pending severity (see 
the Student Handbook, pg. 45, 
for more details). 

In case of a fire alarm, the 
(kx)rs will automatically un- 
lock so students may exit. 
There are two leases planned 
for this systan. The first, 
which will begin this week, is 
set up so that wt^n any emer- 
gency exit door is fully opened 
an alarm will sound for 15 sec- 
onds. Once the alarm goes off, 
security ynU be notified. 

The second [^lase, which is 
still under negotiation, consists 
of having the alarm system 
hooked-up to the fire alarm 
switch board in the security 

The installation of the 
new system is caus- 
ing many conflicting 
feelings, however. 

Some students have mixed 
feelings, "I think it's good be- 
cause it will provide better 
safety for the female students, 
but despite it's benefits, it still 
causes an inconvenience," said 
Suaime, a junior. Jen, also a 

junior, agrees with Suarme and 
said, "I like the extra security 
but it is inconvenient. I wish 
they could have thought of a 
better way of installing it." 
Other dorm residents are dead 
against it! They do rK)t like the 
idea of having to use the front 

>^^n you think about it the 
only inconvenient factor about 
the alarm system is the extra 
100 yards to walk to the front 
door. Mrs. Landis from secu- 
rity made a good comment 

when she said, THC Sys- 
tem is essentially a 
safety factor. You 
are giving up an 
alternate entrance 
but gaining a se- 
cure feeling." 

A little exercise never hurt 
anyone. The feeling of a more 
secure atmosphere is worth it! 

Resid^ce Life plans to in- 
stall alarms in every (brm with- 
in the next few years.

tation has become controver- 
sial the document will go to 
legal counsel to be adjusted 

A conmient made by fresh- 
men Diane Dodin and her 
friends was they felt pressured 
to sign the lease agreement 
while in line at registration and 
were itever given a chance to 
read it. Dean Jarrett does not 
believe they were pressured and 
said the freshmen had plenty of 
time to read it while waiting in 
line. Perhaps the answer to 
dealing with a document as 
strong as this is to have the new 
students sign at a separate, less 
pressure sensitive time. The 
document is also on page 59 of 

the college handbook word- 
for- word but since this is also 
handed out at registration there 
is no real chance to become 
familiar with it. 

This entire situation should 
serve as a lesson to the students 
who did sign this agreement. 
ALWAYS read every word of 
what you are signing. Next 
time you may not be so lucky 
to have people who are willing 
to woric with you to solve the 

As for the students who did 
read the document and forced 
the issue, keep up the good 
woric. Everyone'seffortmakes 
this a better community to live 
in. As for the Administration, 
periiaps they have also learned 
a lesson. They should keep 
current with the legal material 
they are distributing. 

The Summer 
w^ith C.L.R. 

By Roy A. Wenhold, MJ). 

The Center For Learning in 
Retirement had a first this sum- 
mcr-a first formal program 
during summer break between 
semesters. For four Thursday 
mornings in June, a group of us 
met and discussed Aesop's 
Fables; the morals expressed 
in them were read, discussed, 
arid analyzed and pertinent 
similarities between tl^n aiKi 
now were arrived at. 

The meetings were held on 
the grounds of Ed Rubin's Har- 
mony Farm. Ed graciously 
offered his home as the site for 
the program after suggesting 
the subject His daughter San- 
dra and her Doberman lass, 
Roxie, greeted aixl welcomed 
the guests. The discussions 
occurred ouuloors in the grass. 
Fortunately the weather coop- 
erated and the contingent wet 
weather plans were never nec- 

A total of 56 members at- 
tended one or more sessions 
while 18 had a perfect atten- 
dance at all 4 of the mornings. 
Eadi morning tlwse present 

separated into fDur discussion 
groups which were led by one 
or more of the volunteer lead- 
ers-Ms. Dorothy Hoare, Dr. 
Len Cohen, Dr. Eari McWil- 
liams, Mr. Al Proctor, Mr. Ed 
Weisman, and Dr. Roy Wen- 
hold. Several of the groups 
wrote their own Fables as a 
homework project. 

On the last day the class en- 
^yed an informal Greek lun- 
cheon of olives, pita bread, feta 
cheese, grapes, and purKh. 
In a(klition to the Aesop class, 
Ms. Alice Hughes arranged two 
picnics at Peace Valley Park. 
The first, on June 14th was 
well attended by 40-50 pr<>ple 
who talked, sang, and enjoyed 
frioidships while eating a pic- 
nic lunch. T\» second, on 
August 17th was in a sense 
rained out, but 8 hardy mem- 
bers showed up anyhow and 
enjoyed theirpicnic lunch with 
the yellow jackets and h^py 
talk. The appearance of those 
8 who didn't know enough to 
come in out of the rain shows 
the strengthof the C.L.R. bond.

DVC Clubs are Explored 

By Tina Demenczuk 


Club Night attracted over 300 DVC Students to the Feldstein Court Yard in front of 
the Student Center. The various clubs had a chance to "explain their stuff and the 
students learned what student life here on campus has to offer. 

A wide spectrum of clubs were represented from the Agronomy Qub to the Tropical 
Aquarium Society and included Social and Service Fraternities, WDVC, Ram Pages, 
SAC and A-Day. 

The students as well as the clubs benefitted from this event The students were able 
to talk to club members and learn first-hand what their club of interest involved. Many 
clubs, such as WDVC, recruited over 30 new members. Good luck teaching all of your 
new people!

DVC is Changing! 

By Paul Schneider 



Del Val Wins In Excess Of $10 Mil. Contract 
This past summer there were two major changes initiated at DVC. The food 
service is one and the campus paving is tlw other. Both projects arc in their 
infancy and upon their completion will benefit the students as well as the 

The food service changes were instigated by two students, Mike Ward and 
Ron Trombino, who were very active as the only two Student Food 
Committee Reps, during the 1991-92 school year. Through their efforts 
they convinced administration there were concerns that had to be addressed. 
At the discretion of Paul R. Schatschneidcr (S+13), the Business Manager, 
and Sharon Maher, the Controller, it was decided the college should go out 
to bid. At this ^cision a task force was formed in April and consisted of a 
diverse membership to ensure fair representation of everyone. The college 
staff members were Dean Jarrett, Dean Shields, Darren Gross, Sharon 
Maher, and Paul Schatschneidcr. The representative students were Mike 
Ward, Ron Trumbino, and Paul Schneider. 

The process was extensive and time consuming. 11^ committee began 
their search with four food services: ARA, Marriott, Service America, and 
Wood. The committee then sent request for proposals (RFFs) to the 
companies bidding on the contract. The companies then pondered the 94 
page request to see if they could meet all the requirements. 

When they submitted their bids on July 10, it became apparent the final 
decision was going to be a tough one since ali the bids were very competi- 
tive. As it tumed out the Wood Company had the strongest bottom line 
figures and won the bid. 

As many of you are aware, there have been changes in the pub as well as 
the cafeteria. To begin with, the debit card system with the flex option makes 
life easier for everyone. In addition, when flex dollars are used an extra 5% 
is deducted from the total purchase. Some of the other changes, and great 
successes, are the pizza/ hoagie cart, the new counter in the pub, and the 
WOK and waffle stations in the cafeteria. 

Tliese changes arc only the beginning. Starting at the end of November, 
the Wood Company is going to continue with the contractual agreement, 
renovate the entire Pub and make improvements to the cafeteria. 

Right now things seem a little hectic with all the new changes and long 
lines in the Pub, but bear with it and be patient because these changes are for 
your benefit. Look forward to what is coming and apprcciate what you have. 

Del Val Finally Utilizes Money From 1991 Land Sale 
The second change which also began this summer and already has many 
complaining, is the paricing reconstruction. Again, be patient because this 
is just the begirming of a multi-phase project and will benefit everyone in the 
long run. 

The purpose of the design, which was created by Doug Kane, one of DVC's 
Landscape Design Instructors and a well respected Landscape Architect in 
the area, is to improve the overall appearance of the college. One of Mr. 

Kane's goals was to make the lot 
look less like a "paved over com 
field" and more like a parking lot. 
Another goal is to limit the traffic 
flow through the middle of the 
campus. This will become more 
evident in later phases of the 
project, one of which you will 
iK)tice some roads and paths being 
torn up, moved or repaved. 

A concem the administration 
has addressed is where the money 
came from to make all these im- 
provements. When the fannland 
was sold to the township last year, 
part of the agreonent was for them 
to sui^ly materials, equipment, 
andmanpoweras part ofthe agree- 
ment. So, iK)t to worry. Student 
money will be utilized in other 
areas for camjms improvements. 
The changes occurring at DVC 
are encouraging and should be 
viewed with enthusiasm . TTie col- 
lege is finally coming out of the 
dark ages and is on ttie road to be 
a guiding force forttie future lead- 
ers of our worid.

time same place. 


PARKING - Hease remember to follow the new 
traffic pattern. The perimeter roadway from Alumni 
Lane past Security to the stadium is one-way. The 
aisles are alternating ways, maiked with directional 
arrows. This means that all traffic exiting onto the 
one-way roadway must turn left, cross the lower 
end of the lot and return to Alumni Lane via the two- 
way roadway along Samuel and Beikowitz. This 
new pattern establishes a much safer fiow of traffic. 
Additional spots will be added at the lower end of 
the lot by the stadium, these will be slightly wider 
to accommodate truck parking, those having such 
vehicles are encouraged to park there. 
STATISTICS - Following is the first report of 
crime ststistics on campus, the reporting period 
runs from 8/31 to 9/9. 
Thefts - 4 
Vehicle • 1 
Alcohol violations - 4 
Vehicle accidents - 2 
Visitation Violations - 1 
Harassment - 1 
Fire Alarms - 2 
These statistics will be reported monthly. 
Noting the number of thefts that have occured in 
this initial period of time all students are urged to be 
aware of the need for reasonable standards, such as 
keeping room doors locked, valuables out of sight 
and secure as much as possible. Also, large items 
can be engraved with special identification, contact 
Security to have this done. 


The Dining Service would 
like to welcome you back to 
campus. There have been 
many exciting changes in the 
food service dept. Most nota- 
bly the addition of a Comput- 
erized Access System. This 
system allows for greater flex- 
ibility and additional dining 
locations. The new location 
which is now available is Cae- 
sers Pub, for meal equivalen- 
cies at breakfast and dinner or 
flex or cash at all times. 

PETE' S EXPRESS - Try our

STACK'S DELI - For lunch 
meal equivalencies try our 
fresh made deli hoagies and

nience. TlKy are posted on 
our printed menus in our wei- 
come back brochure available 
at any food service location . 

Q &A 

Information on dining services can be found in our Wel- 
come Back Brochure. However, the following are a few of 
the most asked questions. 

Q: How do I add money to my flex account? 
A: Money can be added through two easy steps. 1) Make 
payment to accounting office in Lasker in $25 increments. 
2) Bring that reciept to the dining service office in Levin 
Dining Hall to have your account adjusted. 

Q: What is the advantage of using flex dollars? 

A: No need to carry cash, flex holder discounts, and free 

pizza delivery (flex only). 

Q: What happens if I do not use all of my flex dollars by 

the end of the semester? 

A: They transfer to spring semester. 

Q : What if I don't eat a meal? Can I use that meal at a later 


A: Meals are not transferable meaning you can only eat 

one (1) meal per meal zone. (7:30am • 10:30am) 

(I0:30am - 3:30am) 
(3:30pm - 7:00pm) 

Q: What if I lose or have my I.D. stolen? 
A: Report it lost or stolen immediately • your card has an 
account with flex dollars in it and may be in jeopardy. You 
are responsible for your card. Treat it as though it were 
a credit card, MAC card or cash.

The Offices of Alumni Af- 
fairs/Development are in the 
process of fanning a Student 
Alumni Association (SAA) on 
campus. There will be an in- 
troductory meeting^izza party 
for all interested students on 
Wednesday, September 23 at 
6:00 pm. The purpose of the 
SAA will be to serve as a link 
among students, alumni and 
the DVC conmiunity. This 
group will be opoi to all stu- 
(tents regardless of class year 
or major, and will encourage 
student involvement in cam- 
pus and alumni activities. The 
important benefit of this group 
is a chance for students to meet 
alumni who were once in their 
s}K)es, and get the chance to 
share ideas an experiences. 

Some of the programs 
planned for the SAA are: 
"Spend the Day with the SAA," 
where alumni are paired with 
SAA membere to re-experi- 
ence DVC life for a day (attend 

classes, lunch in the cafeteria, 
etc.); "Guess Who's Coming 
to Dinner," aprogram in which 
area alumni most graciously 
open their homes to SAA mem- 
bersfor dinner (beats cafeteria 
food) to find out what's hap- 
pening on campus, exchange 
ideas, etc.; aiKl "Senior Semi- 
nar," an evening where alumni 
are invited to speak to Seniors 
regarding such real- life issues 
as job-hunting, interviewing, 
budgeting, relocating, etc. Our 
goal and purpose will be to 
increase interaction among 
DVC students - present and 

Mark your calendar for 
Wednesday, September 23 at 6 
pm (location TB A). Members 
of the Alumni Association will 
be on hand to meet and speak 
with students. This is a new 
organization and we ' re open to 
ALL ideas and suggestions!

Banned Book Week 

at the 
Krauskopf Library 

Maya Angelou's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, 
Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts, Stept^n King's Carrie, Farley Mowat's Woman in the Mists: the Story 
of Diane Fossey and the Mountain Gorillas of Africa, J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye, Marie 
Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - what do these books have in common? 

These books and others like them were challenged or banned during the past year in the U.S. 

Banned books will be displayed at the Joseph Krauskopf Memorial Library 
during National Banned Books Week 1992-Celebrating the Freedom to 
Read, September 26-October 3. Most of these books are well-known but 
are considered dangerous or objectionable by individuals or groups who would 
deny others access to them. 

Your college library is participating in Banned BooksWeek, 1992, which is 
sponsored by the American Library Association among others, because it 
believes that most would-be banners act with what they consider to be highest 
motives - protecting themselves, their families and communities from perceived 
injustices and evils and preserving the values and ideals they would have the 
entire society embrace. The result, however, is always and ever the denial 
ofanotiier's right to read. The Joseph Krauskopf Memorial Library believes 
that Americans support our basic right to read guaranteed in the First 
Amendment to the tonstitution of the United States. 

We encourage the DVC Community to view the display and check out a banned book.

the Maryland Mid-Atlantic 
Nurses Assoc, with other stu- 
dent professionals. Apanel dis-

mainhighlight, focusing on the 
emotional and financial trauma 
the disease brings to these 
people. We were also treated 
to a fun but thought provoking 
peer-counseling experience by 
members of the MiUersville 
University student peer coun- 
seling group. CXir participa- 
tion convinced us that even 
well informed health profes- 
sionals had a lot to leam from 

these students. They inspired 
us to try developing such a 
dynamite approach and make 
it available to Del Val students. 
The opportunity to exchange 
ideas and share problems with 
other nurses from Virginia to

Dear Aggie 

.../s hear to help! 

Submit your concemslquestionsi complaints to 
Dear Aggie BOX ^17. 


As a freshman here at DVC, 
I was really nervous on my 
first day. While mv parents 
helped me move in, I was 
greeted by a multitude of 
friendly faces from faculty, 
staff, peer counselors and RA's. 
It quickly became a very relax- 
ing feeling to be here. 

As parents left and the week 
progressed, I quickly realized 
things weren't so relaxed. I 
live in a donn where certain 
RA's give special privileges to 
upperclassmen and are pretty 
mdetofreshmaa For example, 
last week one freshman I know 
was watching a movie with 
some friends and the door was 
opea Granted the TV was a 
litde loud but it wasn't half as 
bad as some people's stereos ' 
during the day. Hie one RA on ii 
my fnend's floor came down ^ 
aiMi told them to tum it down 
(this took place at 9:30, before 
quiethours). Then, alittle while 
later, after Ujxn (quiet hour 
begins) there were several resi- 
dents of the dorm mingling 
around the hall drinking and 
being loud. Yet the RA did 
nothing because tfiey were Jun- 
iors/Seniors! Now, is this fair? 
I believe that if RA's take the 
job, they should take it and be 
totally impartial. They receive 
free phone hookup, $100 flex, 
a stipend, roommate optional, 
and some evenhave bathrooms. 
All of these are incentives to 
do a good job. I think it's 
unfair for them to claim the 

rewards if they don't do their 
jobs to begin with. 

Don't get me wrong, there 
are a lot of really cool, fim and 
honest RA's here at DVC, but 
there arc always a few wlw 
don 't do their jobs and wind up 
^ving RA's an all around bad 


Thanks for listening. 
An angry Freshman 

Dear Angry Freshman 

I understand exactly what you 
are saying. Sometimes when 
people are given a bit of power 

it can go to their heads. The 
first thing you should realize is 
you have no need to be intimi- 
dated by your RA. They are 
chosen because they are re- 
sponsible and they receive 
training to deal with all types 
of situations. You should con- 
front this RA with your con- 
cem and help him/her realize 
what they are doing. Part of 
their training is to be impartial 
and not to be intimidated by 
upperclassmen. If this does 
not have an effect then discuss 

the problem with the dorm CC. 
The CC's are responsible for 
eachof the RA's in theirdorm. 
If this does not help the next 
step is to see Dean Jarrett He 
is ultimately responsible for 
all CC's and RA's on campus. 
It would surprise me if you had 
to go beyond the first step.

The sport of cross-country nin- 
ning is not what many consicter to 
be a spectator sport While com- 
peting, entirely alone, ttw mnners 
face several miles of grass, mud, 
gravel, and macadam, as well as 
streams and hills, as they race 
against the clock for their best 
possible time. 

The men and women compete 
separately; die men run an average 
course of 5 miles, while the women 
run 3 . 1 miles. Scoring is based on 
theplacingsofthe team's first five 
runners aiKi the team with the low- 
est score wins. Meets are usually 
scheduled so that at least three 
schools compete, and each team 
competes separately against each 

Cross-country, unlike track is 
not a spectator sport. The com- 
petitors must be mentally as well 
as physically strong to finish the 
race. The nmners are not always 
cheered on, and sometimes they 
can not see another nmner, let 
alone another teammate.

It's found at the football games 
and other sports. It's found at 
SAC events and club meetings. 
Someone who has it may be in 
the hall, or even sitting next to 
you in class. Some try not to 
catch it, but it's inevitable. It's 
everywhere you turn. . .there ' s no 
escaping it--it's SCHOOL 

It's hard not to see a fellow 
classmate sporting some type of 
DVC garb. While one student is 
wearing simple college sweats, 
another is proudly displaying the 
Aggie sport he or she plays, and 
still another showing his or her 
club. Conglomerations of ttwse 
smdents, clad in green and gold, 
swarm to the Courtyard, Student 

Center, or Ceasar's Pub to meet 
Willi frioids during breaks.They 
discuss their classes and profes- 
sors or even what to wear or 
who to ask to this week's spe- 
cial activity. 

The SAC sponsored events 
always draw a crowd, whether it 
is a daiKe or comedy club or 
even a movie. Such enthusiasm 
for a small scIkwI doesn't seem 
possible, yet DVC's spirit is 
growing like it never has be- 
fore. Some say the reason is 
because we're so small and like 
a family. In many ways, this is 
true. Most professors know your 
name even when you're not in 
class or have not had a class 
with them for a while. You have 
a feeling of belonging, a sense 
of family, a sense of pride.

DVC, the team runs at least 20 miles 
a week, preferably more, interspers-

Susan Bamhurst and Ken Daid, both 
former DVC rurmers and team cap-

make a stronger team, one which Dr. 
Berthold considers to be "quite prom-

while Christy ran a personal best of

DVC women won 19-40 over

Nineteen years ago, the Endangered Species Act(ES A) was passed in order to protect and 
save species tiiat were threatened with extinction. It's purpose is to preserve rare species, their 
habitat, and restore and preserve the species population. The Act was passed in 1973 by an 
overwhelming vote of 92-0 in ihe Senate and 390-12 in the House. However, the Act is going 
to have a very difficult time getting through its five-year renewal without being dramatically 
altered because of assault from different parties. 

According to the ESA, endangered means those species in danger of extinction throughout all 
or a large part of their habitat; whereas "threatened" means those likely to become endangered 
in the future. The Act currently lists 639 animals and plants as endangered or threatened, as well 
as over 3500 awaiting evaluation. The law states that no species listed can be taken, killed, or 
have its habitat altered without a special pennit from the federal government, and it also requires 
federal agencies to plan projects so that they will not harm the listed species in any way. 

The Act's opposition consists of Western businesses that are interested in exploiting federal 
land and water for their own profit and a national group caUed the Endangered Species Act 
Coalition(ESAC). The ESAC represents more than 100 groups ranging firom builders and 
fanners to logging companies and landowners. The coalition would like to amend the ESA to 
lessen the economic impact on the different communities it r^resents. They complain the Act 
is too rigid and prohibits them from business opportunities. The group's executive director, 
Nancy McCann, asks if "we really need to save 80 species, subspecies, and distinct families of 
snails in Alabama? Do we have the resources to protect all tiiese species equally? Some choices 
and judgements will have to be made." 

The Environmental Protection Agency, in a 1990 report, stated that "species extinction and 
overall loss of bio-diversity is one of the highest risk environmental problems facing the worid." 

Environmentalists argue that there are aheady more than enough economic opportunities. A 
permit can be obtained from the govemmem to build or expand on land where a particular 
endangered species may dwell, or they may even kill listed species provided it will not threaten 
the existence of the species in any way. Supporters of the Act argue that we do not know enough 
about a species at the present time, but that they might be valuable to us in the future. 

For example, many tropical trees located in the rainforests contain cures to fatal diseases; yet 
we continue to bum them for grazing land and cut them for exotic fiimimre. The Pacific yew is 
another example of a tree that is invaluaUe to us now. It OHitains the pnMnising cancer drug, 
taxol, in its bark. 

Tlie argumem boils on as the reauthorization deadline approaches. Will the Endangered 
Species Act Coalition be heard with their plea to soften the law 's economic impact, or will the 
envircMimentalists be heard and die Act will remain in its inesent form? Moderate environmen- 
talists and many entrepreneurs hope tfuit the Federal Government can balance die opposing 
points-of-view to allow for bodi natural life and economic growth.

Waste Management 

Operating Safely 

Is Del-Val 

By Marne Sugcuman 

Features Writer 

After recalling my visit to 
Waste Management Co. inTul- 
leytown last fall, a lot of im- 
portant points were brought to 
light that gave me a much bet- 
ter understanding as to how a 
landfill operates. 
I was one of those people who 
had a misconceived notion 
about garbage. Sure, I knew 
that my curbside trash went 
into something called a land- 
fill, but beyond that I never 
gave it much thought. 

Even though I'm an environ- 
mentalist and was even vice 
president/co-founder of my 
high school environmental 
club, until last year, I always 
assumed garbage was simply 
dumped into a large hole in the 
ground, the end. 

Waste Management im- 
pressed me as a very environ- 
mentally safe and conscientious 
corporation. The workers re- 
cyle their own products, which 

really takes more of an effort 
than simply throwing a soda 
can into one of the open land- 

In order to be sanitary, a land- 
fill needs to be lined with vari- 
ous layers of material to elimi- 
nate blowing trash, foul odors, 
and rodents. In addition, it 
prevents runoff and leachate 
(water that collects in these 
lined areas). If leachate does 
occur, it is pumped to a waste 
water treatment site where it is 
(Hirified to meet the standards 
of drinkable water. 

The "trash" can even be 
turned into gas from the meth- 
ane that would otherwise be 
released into the air. The gas 
can ftirther be converted into 
electricity used to run sectors 
of Waste Management, or sold 
to the public. A typical landfill 
can produce enough electricity 
to meet the needs of ten thou- 
sand households. 

"Recycling" used tires to be 
used in the lining process, in 
addition to leaf composting, 

are also great ideas tha|Waste 
Management employs. 

Five thousand tons of waste 
arrive there everyday. This 
number is practically incom- 
prehensible, yet it is a horrify- 
ing reflection of our throw- 
away society. Just as startling 
is the fact that at the projected 
rates. Waste Management will 
exhaust its 121 acres of land by 
1 995 , only seven years after its 
opening. While majorconstruc- 
tion is impo^ible, former land- 
fiUs are used as safe golf 
courses, playgrounds, and 
parks. A park will eventually 
occupy Tulleytown's Waste 
Managementsite, leaving (Nily 
pleasant memories for ftiture 

Applying the law of thermo- 
dynamics, things cannot be cre- 
ated nor destroyed, they can 
only be changed from one form 
to another. In other words, ev- 
erything we think we have 
thrown away is still with us in 
one form or another, there is no

In order for us to make an assumption, we must first defme 
diversity. Diversity is the condition of being different, to balance 
and to increase the variety, according to Webster's New Colle- 
giate Dictionary. As I reviewed this definition, I coru:Iuded we, 
as a College,are not diverse and far from it. To make this school 
diverse we must begin by hiring more minorities, not just blacks 
but Asians, Hispanics, the handicaped etc.. The student body 
must be made aware of different cultures. Many students come 
from areas where they may have never seen a minority, except on 
TV. 1 believe it is the responsibility of the educational system to 
make students aware of the different cultures they will encounter 
at least once in their lifetime. 

By the year 2000, there will be 70% more minorties in the work 
force. TTic. school must begin to prepare the students for this 
change. The educational system is responsible for preparing 
students to attain professional em tloynient. This educational 
preparation should also include di\ ersity training to ensure that 
the students will survive within such a woricforce. 

Therefore, diversity must first begin with education, including 
becoming more aware of the environr.ient around you. Exploring 
diversity can only enhance a student's education and social 
experience at Delaware Valley College. Let us begin now with a 
diversity training program before we all miss the opportunity to 
make the difference in ending cultural ignorance and racism on 
our campus and in our worid.

The answer to Ms.

Permit me to correct you, 
those "tired" bands have been 
around and remained very 
popular longer than most of 
the present freshmen aiHl 

even some of the sophmores 
have been alive. I would like 
to see the bamls in the "alterna- 
tive" scene achieve that feat, 
not highly likely! ! Just for your 
infonnation, \ht only reason, 
bands like Nirvana, and RHCP 
are as popular as they are is that 
they have been (as Gene 
SimmiK)ns of Kiss said), ban- 
ished to pop hell. You may 
have tried to save yourself from 
receiving letters of this sort by 
adding that the aforementioned 
music, attire and entertainment 
possesses its own merit. How 
can you say that classics like 
tie-dye andLedZeppelinmerely 
havemerits??!! As Isaid, check 
bade in fifteen to twenty-five 

years and sm what has become 
of the "alternative" scene. I 
guarantee that bands like Led 
Zeppelin will still be as popu- 
lar, if not more so, as they are 
today, because they are clas- 

sics. In fact, I give the "alter- 
native" revolution, at the ex- 
treme most, 10 years. So, keep 
listening to your "tired" music

Get Out and Vote, huhf 
Why Should I? 

By Tom Alberts 

Staff Writer 

That is the question that has 
been running through voters' 
heads throughout this entire 
campaign year. We as voters 

are expected to make some the candidates are busy slan- 
sense of the manure that has dering each other, there are 
been flung in our faces daily actually people out there who 
by the presidential candidates, would rather know how Gov- 
and arc they telling the tnith? emor Qinton expects to pull 
How are we supposed to know us out of this recession than 

if Governor Qinton is telling 
the truth about whether or not 
he avoided the draft and how 
he managed to do it so flaw- 

This question of truth is now 
compounded by recently dis- 
closed information that Vice- 
President Quayle also avoided 
the draft By the way. who 
cares about Murphy Brown? 
What in God's name does this 
have to do with the election? 

Aside from all of this non- ^idates are ready to confront 
sensical bull, what are the real ^^^ ^o ^^^ 0"t their answers, 
issues of the campagin? I find '""s is wrong. Are we expected 
myself needing to ask that ^^ 8° ^^^ and vote for someone 
question. Don't you? While just fortheirgood looks? Should 

this election degenerate into a 
vote for the lesser of two evils, 
or three if Perot throws his chips 
back on the table? As if all of 
these problems aren't enough, 
we are scolded ifwe decide that 
there is nothing worth voting 
for, and we stay home and do 
something worthwhile. How are 
we expected to vote accurately 
for someone if we don't know 
their position on the critical 
issues?Come on Governor 
Qinton and President Bush, 
wake up and help us decide on 
the best person for the next four 
years, rather than who is the 
lesser of two evils and suffering 
through the next four years!! 

why and how he avoided the 
draft 1 know I would. 

President Bush (if you listen 
to Qinton 's slanderous com- 
mercials) either doesn't know 
the country is in a recession or 
is afraid to confront the issue 
because he is afraid it will hurt 
him, and it probably would. 

We, the voters, are expected 
to know either what the an- 
swers to these and other ques- 
tions are, or wait until the can-

time you turn on a faucet, you 
should get some hot water. 

Then there's the problem

temperature is that of the frig! I 
It's totally ludicrous!!!!

Aggies play mudball 

By Charlotte Walker 

Staff Wnter 

On September 26, the Ag- 
gies traveled to Williamspoft 
to play their third game of the 
season against the Warriors of 
Lycoming College. 

Del Val opened the game by 
scoring an impressive touch- 
down on their first possession. 
The drive took only six plays 
and was set up by an eariy 
interception by DVC's Chad 
SchoU. The touchdown was a 
brilliant pass from Ray Sav- 
age, the starting quarterback, 
to Brian Fricker for 30 yards 
into the end zone. The extra 
point was blocked by the pow- 
erful Warrior defensive line, 
which proved to be a great 
factor in the second half . The 
score at the end of the first 
quarter remained unchanged 
after Del Val's first posses- 

Lycoming's confidence was 
not shaken as the second quar- 
ter began. They came right 
back with a 34 yard passing 
touchdown from quarterback 
sEllio Domenick, after only six 
•plays. Toward the end of the 
second quarter Lycoming's 
fumble was recovered bv 
DVC's Sean Knapp at the 
Warrior's 22 yard line. This 
led to a 32 yard field goal by 
Todd Van Orden only four 
plays later. The Aggie defense 
was able to hold off the War- 
riors until halftime, when the 
score was 9-7. 

During halftime Coach Man- 
love told the players "to expect 
to come out and see a battle in 
the second half." The team 
entered the second half with a 
lot of momentum and confi- 
dence, but this was soon re- 
placed by fhistration when 
Mike Savare fimibled the kick-

The September 26, meet 
against Moravian/Allenlown/ 
Widener, title Aggie runners did 
not fair as well. The runners 
fought off colds and coughs 
while running a wet and messy 
course. The women, suffering 
setbacks due to injuries and a 
small team, lost all three of 
their meets. The men fared 
slightly better, winning 26-31 
over Widener, but losing to 
Allentown and Moravian. 

The next meet will be an 
invitational at Philadelphia 
College of Bible on Saturday, 
October 3rd. The team's next 
home meet will be on October 
24th against Albright and Mu- 

off return, giving the Lycom- 
ing offense the ball on the Del 
Val 23 yard line and setting 
ttwm up for a touchdown. Due 
to this errant play the score was 
13-9 at the end of the third 

In the fourth quarter, die 
Aggie defense showed their 
strength by causing a Warrior 
fumble at the Del Val 1 yard 
line. However, the gain was

mounted an impressive drive 
at the end of the fourth quarter. 
They drove from their own 38 
yard line to the Lycoming 16

possession on downs.

De^ite team entiiusiasm and a 
small, but enngetic crowd, the 
Lady Aggies were unable to ef- 
fectively handle Farleigh Dickin- 
son University- Madison's coa- 
sistent play this past Saturday. 
Del Val showed persistence, and 
had several good plays in the third 
game, making for a close, excit- 
ing match, but eventually a few 
mistakes cost them the game. 
FDU- Madison finally won the 
match 15-9, 15-1, 15-12. 

Prior to their loss to FDU, the 
team, coached by John Quinn, 
came out strong and aggressive 
fot their first home game oi the 
season on Tuesday, Sept 22. 
Consistent passing and hitting by 
Sharon Adams, Vicki Morton, 
Paula Musi, and Marsha Tsai, 
along with accurate sets from 
Crystal Oellig and Paige Sergey, 
gave the home favoites a size- 

able lead. 

However, a persistent defense 
kept the Allentown ladies in the 
game. They eventually outsoxed 
the Aggies with a 15 to 5 score. 

The next 2 gsnes jvoduced 
much of the same effect. Provid- 
ing some depth to the DVC line- 
up, Diane Dodin and Linda Musi 
came in to help the team total 13 
points on the second game and 8 
points in the third.

det^mination and the sd)ility to 
pull together to work as a team.

the ball within several inches 
of die opposing goal several 
times, but tiiey were unable to 
finish the plays for a score. 
Coach Fleischer stated that "We 
played well as far as passing 
and getting the ball through, ... 
but tiiere was too much drib- 
bling." TTie offense had fifteen 
shots on Wilkes* goalie, as op- 
posed to only eight shots on 
Del Val's goalies. 

Coach Fleischer felt that in 
addition to the offense being 
unable to penetrate, die defense 
had a difficult time judging 
"whoi to attack and when to 
retreat." Both offensive pen- 
eti'ation and defensive judge- 
ment will be emphasized as Del

By Shannon Murphy 

Club News Editor 

The crisp air swiris around me, 
As I walk slowly down the 

The autumn leaves fall gently 

to the earth. 
As the bell tolls its solemn song. 
A sense of tranquility all around 
My mind begins to wancter. 
I think of all those left behind, 
wcmdering if they remonber. 
Will they be there when I re 

Will they be the same? 
Will I, be the same? 
All these questions in my mind. 
Fill me with sorrow. 
Why do things have to change? 
Why can't they stay the same? 
Just when I can't fight the tears 

any longer, 
I hear my name called. 
Bringing me back to here and 

The new arc waiting. 
They arc here and now. 
So I must be. 
The white building, with its 

white columns. 
Welcomes me to its warm halls. 
For now, 
This is my home. 

1 guess changes arc good. 
They are needed for growth. 
The change of leaves color in 

falling off the tree 
Enables new leaves to grow. 
Just as a person needs to grow. 
To be on his own. 
And learn who he is. 
Not who others say he is. 

If we don't think of it as a b^ 

Rather a game. 
If faced as a challenging game 

of who am I. 
The loneliness felt will go away. 
New friends are as valuaUe as 

Helpone anotherplay his game- 
while playing your own. 
And he will help you. 
Memories are forever, 
No one can change them. 
So make new memories to be 

with the old. 
And they will be there the next 

You change.

Rollins Band - 

The End of Silence 

By Pat Hickey 

Staff Writer 

Hard-hitting, soulful, in- 
tense. The Rollins Band once 
again display their incredible 
dynamism. Rollins' soul-bar- 
ing coupled with the band's 
multifaceted musical maneu- 
vers created a myriad of emo- 
tions, from seething, gritted 
teeth verbalizations to full 
blown pain and rage, espe- 
cially on "Just Like You," 
where Rollins deals with his 
troubled childhood and the fear 
that he's become just like his 
Dad. "Low Self Opinion" is 
more accessible, hitting a solid 
groove, while "Obcsene" and 
"Blues Jam" showcase the 
band's musical talent The 
End of Silence becomes a 
test where the main question 
is- Who will break first? You 
or Rollins?

No Hall Phones! 

students Won't Stand for the 
removal of hall phones 

By Christopher Drake 

Staff Writer 

On September 22, 1992 a 
memo to all RA's was posted 
concerning the public tele- 
ph(Hies. It stated that (mbllc 
teleplwnesonceitainfloors arc 
scheduled to be removed. 

This removal is due to the 
telejAones not generating sufi- 
cient revenue to support their 
costs. The reason the telephcHies 
have not generated enough rev- 
enue is because students are not 
"feeding"the telephones change. 
Instead they are using credit 
card services. The dorm floors 
that will be affected arc Beikow- 
itz 1st floor, Beiicowitz 2nd 
floor, Cooke 2nd floor. Miller 
Hall and Samuel 1st floor. 

However, removal of these 
phones would be a breach of the 
Delaware Valley College 92- 
93 student handbook. On page 

Alcohol Freshmen Elect 
Awareness Vice President 

1 2 it clearly states that stuctents 
may use the phone with a credit 
card service. In legal form the 
paragraph in the handbook 
reads, "The college (DVC) pro- 
vides one telep^ne per resi- 
dent hall floor for local calling 
or free connection to any of the 
long distance telephcMie compa- 
nies with credit card service." 
If the tclei^ones are removed 
it will breach the student hand- 
book, or should I say our con- 
stitution. If your floor is af- 
fected by this i^one removal 
simation, please support the 
cause to keep the i^nes. Only 
you can msdce the differraice. 
It's our responsibility to work 
together as a ccnnmunity and 
stand up for our handbook 

Keep a lookout for a petition!

WDVC, the campus radio 
station located on 640 AM, is 
on its way to oemg re-estab- 
lished on the air waves. 

With ah enthusiastic staff of 
over 40 people, WDVC plans 
to begin spinning tunes as soon 

as they can raise enough money 
to cover the cost of replacing 
the cable wiring across cam- 
pus. The cable which is erected 
now is severely damaged and 
needs to be replaced. 
Tom Zavorski, Victor Ykoruk 
and Marci Caroll, co-chairper- 

sons to WDVC, have been 
woridng quite hard with Bob 
Pmgue, a ceruned tecnmcian, 
to reactivate the station. Mr. 
Pingue says that the station 
needs at least4,000 feet of new 
coaxular cable to rewire the 
entire campus and a new am- 
plifler because the one used 
last year was blown out over

As soon as WDVC can raise 
the funds to re wire the campus,

On September 15. 1992, 
tiieNew Britain Boro Police 
Chief, David Sempowski, 
along with our own LL Ma- 
rable, hosted an Alcohol 
Awareness meeting withmem- 
bers of the stuctent body. After 
answering a quiz sheet (stu- 
dents were not graded) on their 
knowledge of alcohol, a video 
was stK)wn which answered the 
questions from the quiz sheet. 
The questions asked such 
things as "WhatexacUy causes 
someone to get drunk?" and 
"In a social situation, how much 
alcohol can the the liver comp- 
fortably remove?" Most stu- 
dents passed, some did 
not(myself included). The 
video was designed to helpclear 
up some of the misconceptions 
about alcohol and getting 
drunk. After the video Chief 
Sempowski wait on to detail 
what can happen to you if you 
are caught driving while under 
the influence, or drinking un- 
der-age, or both. The discus- 
sion was closed with Chief 
Sempowski demonsti^ting a 
Sobriety Test on one of the 
members of the audience. The 
basic message was not to get 
people to stop drinking. The 
message was to drink sensibly, 
and don't do anytiiing stupid. 
Chief Sempowski and the other 
officers of New Britain Boro 
and our own security do not 
enjoy busting people fordrink-

year's event promises to be fun- 
filled, with opportunities for ev- 
eryone to get involved. All the 

fall sports teams and the 1992 
Homecoming Queen nominees 
will be introduced by Mr. Ron 
Johnson, the M.C. for the evening. 
The Food Club will be sponsoring 
a sundae party afterwards. 

Saturday's agenda proves just 
as exciting, starting with a parade 
through Doylestown. We should 
feel proud that Doylestown rec- 
ognizes DVC's significance and 
achievements and wants to dis- 
play our prominence throughout 
the community. A performance 
by the DVC Chorale will precede 
the game, as they perform our 
Alma Mater and The National 

Del Val's vivacity will surely 
emerge when we defeat Albright 
College on the football field. 
Anticipation mounts at half-time 

when the results of the float and 
spirit car judging, and the 1992 
Homecoming Queen is announced 
amidst the tiiundering applause 
and cheering crowds. 

Festivities continue outside 
Berkowitz Hall where aband will 
be playing the hottest music 
around. After all the dancing, 
you must be tiiirsty, right? Those 
over 21 can quench their thirst 
with a refreshing beer at the tail- 
gate party in the paiidng lot! 

Homecoming weekend is only 
one of the many peaks of school 
spirit that will liven Del Val 
throughout the year. Upcoming 
events will include: Family Day, 
The Halloween Haunting, The 
Christmas Semi-formal, Pride and 
Polish Day, A-Day, Founder's 
Day and Gradu£Uion!

The class of '96 held elec- 
tions for class officers on 
Thursday, September 24th in 
the dining haU during lunch 
time. But it wasn't much of a 
hard choice because hardly 
anyone ran for office! ! 

The positions of president, 
treasurer, secretary and student 
representative only had one 
candidate each and there were 
no candidates for commuter 
representative or Student Ac- 
tivities Committee (SAC) rep- 
resentatives. The position of 
vice president was the only real 
race. Even then, tJ^re were 
only two caiKlidates. With all 
these positions unfilled, this 
shows a severe lack of interest 
on the part of the freshman 

Is the ignorance totally the 
students fault though? Most 
stu(knts I talked to have sai<i 
that they were not even aware 
of when the nomination pro- 
cess began, how it was run or 
how to become involved. Stu- 
dents in turn believe there was 

a substantial lack of informa- 
tion coming from Student 
Council's part. Maybe if tiiey 
had created more posters or 
flyers to inform the freshmen 
or put a littie note into each 
freshmen's packet at orienta- 
tion, like other clubs did, a 
better result would have oc-

As many of you remember, 
in the last issue of Htvt Ram

Mrs. Sprat: "The school owns ages though."

R.P.: "Why are the prices so 
M.S.: "K-mart has hundreds 

R.P.: "Is that why the text 
books are so expensive?" 
M.S.: "We are at the publish- 
ers mercy. The prices of the 

of stores and are able to buy text books change from semes- 
large quantities of school sup- ter to semester. We have no 

plies at one time. That option 
is not open to the smaller stores. 
When we get items at dis- 
counted prices, we ALWAYS 
pass the savings on to the stu- 
dents and we always pick up 
on specials whenever possible. 
We also offer specialized items, 
which you obviously can't by 
at K-mart. Not only do we sell 
many personalized Del Val 
items but we also sell different 
types of special items students 
need for classes. For example, 
the school store offers land- 
scaping kits which you can't 

control over that. When we 
price the text books, we also 
charge for the cost of shipping 
and handling, a restocking fee 
charged by the publishers, and 
costs of returning book. 

R.P.: "Why is there such a 
small amount paid for used 
books at the end of the semes- 

M.S.: "This is something the 
students don't understand. 
When you return books at the 
end of the semester, there are 
two lines. The first line is to 
buy back books which will be 

used next semester. ThisistlK 
school's line and they must 
return to you half of ttie origi- 
nal purchase price. ITie second 
line is for books that will not be 
used in the next semester. The 
return price of these books is 
detennined by a book sent to 
the school store by the pubUsh- 
ers. The school store has no 
control over that line. Tlte 
only other option to the stu- 
dents is to sell the books on 
their own and they are more 
than welcome to do so. So, at 

the next book buy back, look 
for the right line!" 

R.P.: "What else would you 
like the stu(tents to know?" 

M.S.: "I have always had an 
'Open Door Policy'. The stu- 
dents can always come in and 
talk to me about anything. One 
of tt^ advantages of being a 
smaller school is that you get 
to know the smdents a lot bet- 
ter and we are able to offer a lot 
more to the students that the 
bigger universities can't Like 
at Penn State or Villanova, if 

you tried to buy one of the 
sweatshirts there, they cost a 
lot more than they do here 
because tl^y have a higher 
markup. At Del Val we try to 
cater to all the students needs 
by offering expulsive and in- 
expensive items so all the stu- 
dents can enjoy them. Also 
this store is able to work with 
Radio Shack which is a big 
advantage to the students. The 
store is always open to new 
suggestions. If the idea is 
feasible, we'll do it! The stu- 
dents opinions are important, 
we're not just a business, we 
feel kid's feelings." 

While talking to Mrs. Sprat 
I was given the feeling that I 
was truly welcomed and that 
she really cared. The school 
store is not out to rob you, 
they arc trying to provide a 
service to you in the best way 
possible. So don't get down 
on them. Give them a break! ! 
They're trying their best, just 
like you are. Besides, what 
K-mart can you walk into and 
feel tnily at home in? None 
that I know of!!

The commuting population 
of students here at DVC are 
facing conditions worse than 
those of last year. Some feel 
like second class citizens while 
others are indifferent. 

1 spent my free time the past 
few days asking fellow com- 
muters how they feel about tfieir 
position here. A few students 
showed pure indifference ^^ilile 
the rest of them had several 
complaints. Issues such as the 
large food lines, the crowded 
lounge, and the new parking 
lot were mentioned. 

The long food lines have pre- 
vailed since the introduction of 
the new meal cards. Most of 
the commuters I know do iK)t 
even use their cards. This plan 
was originally su[^sed to al- 
low you, the commuters, to 
mingle with the residents more 
in the cafeteria. Instead, many 
residents choose to eat in the 
Pub. This is fine, but tlte Pub 
can not accommodate such 
large numbers of food orders. 
Because of this, we must now 
wait in line for a v^^le and ttioi 
wait for our food. 

Another popular complaint 
involves the overcrowded 
lounge, that once was a great 
{dace for us to study between 
classes. Many students have 
attempted to study there, only 
to find every seat taken, espe- 
cially since we have fewer 

chairs than we had last year. 
The T. v., which most students 
enjoy, was blamed by one stu- 
dent for the overcrowding of 
the smalllounge. DeanJarrett 
has been woiking on moving 
the lounge to the larger game- 
room upstairs. 

The parking situation is one 
that most of the commuters 
have given up on. Last year, 
several complained of the long 
walk that commuters must face 
every day as the residents take 
all the good spots to paik the 
cars that they drive once or 
twice a week. Dean Jarrett 
suggests a "prefened" parking 
area for those students who are 
willing to pay for it. Many of 
the commuters I spoke with 
were transfer students from 
much larger colleges, and thus 
found the walk shorter and 
didn't complaitL 
Attempts were made last year 
to better the Uves of the com- 
muters of this school, but went 
largely unnoticed and, for the 
most part, ignored. Twocoti- 
muter representatives spent 
endless hours woiking with 
stuctent Govenmient to im- 
prove die c(Mnmuter lounge, 
rmovate the gameroom, and 
create more convenient park- 
ing for us, but tt^y were un- 
successful. They complained 
thJtt the ratio of r^ for resi- 
dents is much higher than that 

of commuter reps. 

This year, however, we 
should be able to do some- 
thing. As many have noticed, 
the number of commuter mail- 
boxes has increased signifi- 
cantly since last year. Now 
there are roughly 420 commut- 
ers which means we represent 
one-thirdof the ftiU-time popu- 
lation. Additionally, the com- 
muters need more power in 
student government to be fairiy 
reprcsentated. It is up to you, 
the commuter, to get involved 
and demand fair treatment. As 
commuters you pay as much in 
tuition, if not more, to belong 
to this college. 

Dean Jarrett speculates that 
one reason the commuters feel 
left out is because they don't 
get involved in clubs and ac- 
tivities here on campus. My 
argument with this is that most 
of the clubs meet during 
evoiing hours, making it diffi- 
cult for us to attend the meet- 
ings and activities. Maybe if 
enough of us get involved, day- 
time meetings can be arranged 
by the different dubs. In order 
for die commuters to have some 
leverage, we need to become 
more visiUe on campus. We 
need more commuters in the 
various clubs and stucknt gov- 
einmoit We can make a dif- 
ference at Delaware Valley

of the season 17-14.

Halloween, whose actual 
name is "All HaUows Eve", 
was first celebrated in tlK fifth 
century B.C. in Ireland. De- 
spite the fact that the centu- 
ries and purposes have 
changed, Halloween is still a 
festival for witches, goblins, 
and ghosts, as weU as playing 
pranks on one another. 

The major difference be- 
tween our present celebra- 
tions of mischievous fun and 
games and the ancient holi- 
day, is that Halloween was 
celebrated in deathly serious- 
ness, by adults. 

Halloween was originally 
celebrated by the ancient 
Celtic dmids. On the night of 
October 31, then the official 
end of summer, the fires in 
the hearths of the Celtic 
households were extin- 
guished to make the homes 
cold and undesirable to dis- 
embodied spirits. The people 
of the village gathered on the 

outskirts of the village, where 
a druid priest would light a 
huge bonfire to honor ttte sun 
god for the past summer 's har- 
vest The bonfire was also 
used to frighten away the 
cursed, roving spirits. The 
Celts believed that on Octo- 
ber 31, all the persons who 
had died the previous year 
would assemble to choose the 
body of tlK person or mimal 
they would inhabit for the next 
year, before passing into the 

The idea of our present cos- 
tumes is to frighten away 
these roving souls. The people 
would dress up as demons, 
hobgoblins, and witches. 
They would parade first in- 
side theirhomes aiid then out- 
side, being as noisy aiKl de- 
structive as possible Finally, 
they would continue down the 
street towards the bonfire. If 
someone or something were 
suspected of already being 

possessed by a spirit, they 
would be sacrificed in the fire 
as a lesson to other spirits con- 
templating possession. 

The Romans adopted the 
Celtic Halloween practices, but 
in 61 A.D. they outlawed hu- 
man sacrifice. In place of the 
living sacrifices, they substi- 
tuted an Egyptian custom of 
efRgies, in which likenesses 
(nonnally cloth dummies) of 
the thing possessed were bumt 
and "tortured" instead. During 
the centuries following its in- 
ception, the belief of spiritual 
possession waned and gave 
way to the present ritual of 
amusement that has become 
our Halloween.

(This Is ttM sscond In s thrss-psrt ssriss on pollution) 


The pollution that Company 
X dumped into our communal 
waterways has contaminated 
our water supply, adversely 
affected aquatic life, and re- 
duced the reproductive capa- 
bilities of phytoplankton. The 
toxins do not disappear once 
they are dumped into the wa- 
ter. Through the physical pro- 
cess of evaporation, the toxins 
are broken-down from a liquid 
solid to a gaseous state, and are 
transported into the atmo- 
S{^re, contaminating our air 

We know that what goes up 
into the air has the potential to 
affect the entire planet. While 
in the atmosphere, the toxic 
gases are gathered into the wind 
and can be distributed around 
the planet. It is this random 
distribution of air-bome pol- 
lutants that causes environmen- 
tal destmction on a global scale. 

The gaseous pollutants above 
the planet most seriously af- 

fect the ozwie layer. The ozone 
layer is an envelope of atmo- 
s{^ric gases that surrounds 
the Earth and shields it from 
excessive solar radiation. The 
ozone layer is an unstable form 
of oxygen which, at it's fur- 
thest, is 30 miles above the 
Earth's surface. Undernormal 
circumstances, the formation 
rate of ozone equals the con- 
sumption rate; therefore, the 
concentration remains con- 
stant. Pollutants in the air dis- 
rupt the steady-state value and 
cause ttie rate of formation to 
decrease. The steady-state con- 
centration is dismpted mainly 
by free radicals. Free radicals 
are pollutants of chemical spe- 
cies with an unpaired electron. 
These extra electrons disrupt 
the concentration, thus decreas- 
ing the protection from harm- 
ful ultraviolet radiation nor- 
mally provided by the ozone 
The ozone absorbs solar ul- 

traviolet rays. If they were to 
re£u:h us, they would be ca- 
pable of destroying our health. 
We need the ozone layer to 
survive because without it the 
ultraviolet rays would cause 
skin cancer, blindness, and 
inflict damage on plants and 
wildlife. If the ozone were to 
disappear, then we would be 
exposed to lethal levels of ra- 
diation. We would all bum up 
and die. 

Some enviroimiental scien- 
tists predict that at the rate the 
ozone layer is being destroyed, 
the planet could lose its protec- 
tive ozone layer in 1 00 years or 
less. The most massive (te- 
crease is over Antarctica, where 
ozone concentration tempo- 
rarily declines each spring, re- 
sulting in the formation of an 
"ozone hole." 

Chemical pollutants that 
reach the atmosphere by evapo- 
ration not only hurt the ozone 
layer, but they can return to the

bull was ever adorned by one. 
In ancient Rome, warriors typi- 
cally attached body armor to 
rings in theirnipples. A pierced 
navel in Egyjrt indicated wealth 
and royalty. In African tribes, 
piercings and body modifica- 
tions have been carried to ex- 

The concept of body pierc- 
ing filtered into the U.S. 
through sailors who traveled 
around the globe. What was 
basically an underground trend 
surfaced in the late seventies 
during the punk movement. 
Considered a status symbol 
then, body piercing is riow ac- 
cepted as an art form. Piercing 
makes a great alternative to 

tattooing, in that it can be re- 
moved. In any respect, it is a 
fad that will not die fast. 

A diverse set of individuals 
partake in body piercing : young 
heterosexual women, neo- 
punks, Axl Rose, gay leather- 
men, and lesbian dominatrices 
may all be found "waiting for 
the needle." Piercings of the 
ears, nose, eyebrows, and lips 
are generally done for aesthetic 
purposes. Nipples, navels, and 
"lower body" piercings are 
perfonned to heighten sexual 
pleasure. During and after 
piercings, most people express 
a sense of euphoria due to re- 
leased endorphins. 

Piercing is something I have 
wished to do for quite some 
time, and several days ago I 
had my first piercing. After I 
was seated comfortably in a 
black leather chair, the soon- 
to-be-pierced area was cleaned 
with alcohol. The earring, com- 
posed of surgical steel, was 

also disinfected. Following the 
donning of rubber gloves, John 
Paul, Philadelphia's only pro- 
fessional piercer, grasped my 
eyebrow with forceps. He re- 
moved a twenty gauge (really 
big!) needle from a sealed pack- 
age, held it to my eye, and on 
the count of three- pushed. My 
observing friends' jaws 
dropped. The next thing I knew, 
the ring was aR)arently in place. 
This was signified by the gross 
quantities of blood gushing 
down my face, since head 
wounds do generally tend to 
bleed. Ten minutes later, I was 
on the R5 headed toward D VC. 
I am now "the chick with the 
pierced face." 

If any of this has interested 
you, I or John Paul would be 
glad to relate further informa- 
tion. Due to the sexual nature 
of this topic, much of the per- 
tinent and really interesting 
stuff could not be printed. If 
you are considering a piercing, 
be sure it is what you want and 
trust only a professional. 

Earth and cause serious dam- 
age. Acid rain is the main form 
of transportation for terra- 
bound toxic chemicals. When 
chemical pollutants are in the 
air they sometimes form Sul- 
fur and Nitrogen dioxides. 
These dioxides then combine 
with atmosprtieric moisture to 
produce a rain, snow, or hail of 
sulfuric and nitric acids. This 
is acid rain. 

Acid rain causes major envi- 
ronmental damage because it 
is very aci'*c, almost as acidic 
as vinegar. Acid rain has cte- 
stroyed plant and animal li fe in 
lakes, damaged forests and 
crops, endangered marine life 
in coastal waters, eroded ^ruc- 
tures, and contaminated our 
drinking water. Acid rain is a

probably always be here. Our

1. Polyester and other synthetic textiles are petroleum 
based products which release pollutants into the air 
when produced. Buy cotton products when you can 
since cotton is a natural fiber. 

2. Cut the plastic rings of your six-pack so they don't 
strangle ocean birds and fish when they are dumped into 
the ocean. 

3. Have your group organization adopt a stretch of 
highway here in Doylestown. Your organization will 
receive recognition while you are actively cleaning up 
your stretch of land.

Anti-Semitism At Dave 
Binder Concert 

By Mame Sugarman 

Staff Writer 

I was a witness to a particu- 
lariy distuibing event on Fri- 
day night, October 16th, here 
at DVC during the Dave Binder 
concert, "James Taylor". I 
thought, as 1 envisioned a nice 
pe£u:ehil 1970's-like evening 
outdoors, that I would be cel- 
ebrating nature with friends. 
The ironic aspect was that last 
Friday was a beautiful night, 
but an act of hatred occurred, 
ripping through the tranquil 
eV^jnifng^like a gunshot tearing 
through flesh. 

Tlie "gentleman" who was in 
charge of one large spotlight 
atop a truck started yelling 
things through the air. A beer 
in one hand, and his other con- 
trolling the light, he boister- 
ously cheered for the bassist 
on stage and then Dave Binder. 
There was no one else on stage, 
so he couldn't riotously cheer 
for anyone else. Instead, after 
having the attention he so 
sickly wanted, out of no where 
he veiled "F— the lews!" I 
had to take a double take be- 
cause that comment just is not 
the thing one expects to hear at 
such an event. Sure, we could 
contribute his rude exclama- 
tion to his potentially dmnken 
state, but that does not make it 

Immediately, a decent, daric- 
haired student leapt off the 

From the Editors: 

In response to Dave Binder 

We strongly believe issues 
such as this should be 
addressed and we realize it 
takes guts to respond to them. 
In an educational environment 
such as a college campus there 
are many people thrown 
together who come from 
different cultures and have 
diversified beliefs. For some 
students it is the first time 
experiencing such a variety of 
diversity. At this point in life 
college students should realize 
they are, or are almost, adults 
and must learn to be sensitive 
to the differences in others. It 
is important to respect people 
for who they are as well as 
where they come from 
especially from the ethnic, 
sexual and religious aspects. 
Alleged attacks such as those 
made at the Binder concert not 

ground, walked toward the ig- 
noramus, apparently to let him 
know his anti-semitic remark 
was not in the least appreci- 
ated. Regardless of race or 
religion I believe this student 
would have defended any mi- 
nority group subject to this 
typeofslaiKler simply because 
it is wrong. The "gentleman" 
on the lights and some of his 
beer chugging friends pro- 
ceeded to veibally harass the 
honorable student. This went 
on all evening, but he and his 
party stayed for the whole show 
in spite of the intimidation 
aimed to make them leave. 

Honestly, this is NOT 
1930's -1940's war-torn Ger- 
many! This is 1992. Hitler is 
dead and the Nazi regime has 
fallen. Hitler may have used 
racism as a form of scapegoat- 
ing when his country's eco- 
nomic conditions were bad, 
but today we are supposedly 
more learned about such 
events. Do we really want to 
return, in our troubling times, 
to an ideology that is morally 
wrong and has failed? 
The current increase of Neo- 
Nazism in Europe and America 
is quite alarming. Does it mean 
that people today have so much 
free time on their hands that 
they have to go around perse- 
cuting segments of society? 

As an American, I certainly 
don't want this to reflect the 
America I believe in. 
Maybe I'm misinformed, but 
I thought that we attended an 
institute of higher education to 
expand our minds, not limit 
them with stereotypes. Stereo- 
typing only provides us with a 
prejudiced, pessimistic, view 
of the worid. Going through 
life with selective blinders on 
may make one miss the tnily 
valuable things and people en- 
countered on the road to knowl- 

If we really wanted to take 
stereotyping to an extreme, ev- 
eryone could be placed into a 
negative category according to 
physical characteristics, geo- 
grai^cal location, or any other 
absurd category. Stereotypes, 
simply placing people in nega- 
tive categories, would pit par- 
ent against child and brother 
against brother, so what is the 
point? It is wasted energy that 
we could apply toward posi- 
tive aspects of life. If we 
choose not to like someone, 
why not dislike them on an 
individual basis, depending on 
personality, not race or creed? 
Let's try to fight these attacks 
on basic human fiieedoms, so 
that we can avoid another 
Worid War II and gain pride in 
the ideals America stands for.

As the second half opened 
up LVC had a very time con- 
. suming possession, that lasted 
for almost 6 minutes as they 
moved the ball down the field. 
This drive culminated in a 
Seesholtz pass to Stouch for a 
41 yd. touchdown. This tied 
the score at 14-14.

The Equine Science Organization of DVC hekl their first annual horse show on Saturday, October 17 £tt 
the Equine Science Center. The show was sponsored by the ESO and the Doylestown Rotary Club, and drew 
in riders from Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jer^y . It was an American Horse Show Association "A" 
rated show, in which riders may earn points towards year-end awards. 

The DVC riders did exceptionally well in the Pleasure Division. Karen De Francesco rode DVC Sleepin 
Sonny to a fu^ and second place in the Pleasure flat classes, and was followed by Valerie Farrer , who placed 
second and third on DVC April. Nicole Capriani won the over-fences class, and placed fourth and fifth in 
the flftt classes with DVC Mayflower. 

Many don*t consider riding to be a demanding sport They donU realize the physical and mental effort 
that it takes to pilot a thousand-pound animal with a mind of it's own around the ring, much less over a jump 

The strength of the Equine Science Program can be seen in the riden, and can only grow stronger in the 
years to come. 

</AIJ^ take World Series 
in Six Games 

by Tom Alberts 

Staff writer 

From the first pitch to the final 
out, the World Series promised 
excitement. In fact, even before 
the Series began there was an air 
of excitement about it. For one 
thing it was a historical one due to 
the fact that the Toronto Blue 
Jays, were the Cu^i Canadian team 
to make it to the Series. It was a 
case of deja vu, because the At- 
lanta Braves repeated their 1991 
World Series performance. 

Game One was taken by the 
Braves by the score of 3- 1 , when 
Damon Berryhill hit a three run 

Nolan ran 5 yds. for the touch- 
down. This sent the Aggies 
into halftime with a 7-3 advan- 

In the third quarter the de- 
fense saw the field for almost 
the wlH)le quarter. The defen- 
sive effort, however, could not 
prevent a Wilkes touchdown 
that put them up 17-7. The 
final touchdown came from tt^ 
Aggies, as Ray Savage ran 9 
yd. into the endzone. Savage 
tried for the 2 point conver- 
sion, but it failed. The last 
resort was an onside kick, but 
after a big pile-up a Wilkes 
player came up with the ball. 
This resulted in a 17-13 out- 
come in favor of Wilkes. 
The Aggies are now 2-5 over- 
all and 24 in the MAC. Del 
Val now prepares for next week 
when they will travel to Mora- 
vian College for the first of 
three away games that will fin- 
ish off their season. 

home run off of Toronto starter 
Jack Morris. 

Game Two was taken by the 
Jays by the score of 5-4, by a 
dramatic, ninth inning two run 
home run by back-up catcher Ed 
Sprague off of Baseball's AU- 
time saves leader Jeff Reardon. 

Game Three was taken by the 
Jays by the score of 3-2, by a 
game winning single in the ninth 
inning hit by Candy Maldonado 
off of Jeff Reardon. 

Game Four was taken by the 
Jays by the score of 2-1. 

Game Five was taken by the 
Braves by the score of 7-2, by a 
grand slam hit by Lonnie Smith 
off of starter Jack Morris which 
broke the game wide open in the 
fifth inning. 

Game Six and the Series were 
taken by the Jays by the score of 
5-4, by a game winning hit by 
Dave Winfield in extra innings. 

This Worid Series makes the 
Toronto Blue Jays the first Cana- 
dian team to win a World Series, 
and the Jays won it on Ammcan

SHOW!!!" Docs that phrase sound familiar? It should, it 
was one of the most popular phrases to come out of the 
1980's heavy metal surge. One of the most famous and 
influential front men in metal history coined it as a staple of 
his bands' live show. In case you have been asleep for the 
last ten years I am referring to Dec Snider formeriy of 
Twisted Sister. 

Where has he been for the last five years? The thirty seven 
year old Dee says he has been suffering career wise. The 
reason he left Twisted Sister was because he was suffering 
from road bumout. He spent a year getting out of the 
contract he had with Twisted/Adantic records, before at- 
tempting a two year comeback with a band named DES- 
PERADO. However, the A&R man pulled out at the last 
minute leaving the half million dollar album which they had 
recorded in limbo. The album has never been released and 
Dee has littie or no access to the songs he wrote. 

Dee has now returned, twenty pounds lighter than his 
Twisted Sister years with a new band named WIDOW- 
MAKER who ahieady have plans to release an album 
entitled "Blood and Bullets". The release date is undecided. 

Widowmaker consists of, of course. Dee formerly of 
Twisted Sister on lead vocals; Al Pitrelli fomwrly of Hot 
Shot<Danger Danger) on guitar and backup vocals; Joe 
Franco formerly of Good Rats on drums; and Marc Russell 
formerly of Desperado on bass and backup vocals. 

Widowmaker marks the triumphant return of one of 
rock's most colorful and influential lead singers. Dee 
Snider, THE Twisted Sister has returned to reclaim his 
rightful place in the music industry, on top!!

Speak Out,,. 

Well, we're back again, to 
stir up a little more contro- 
versy and make people think. 
This week we are dealing with 
a certain dorm policy that ef- 
fects all of us and the phone 
system on camfnis. 

Let's begin with, as the stu- 
dent handbook calls it, 'the 
limited visitation hours pro- 
gram." As listed in the student 
fnandbook, maximum visita- 
Ition hours are Sunday throu^ 
Thursday- 7:00 am to 12:00 
midnight and Friday and Sat- 
urday 7:00 am through 2:00 
am. Now what's wrong with 
this picture? 99% of the stu- 
dents on this campus are 18 
years of age or older, making 
them legal adults, yet we have 
a rule that will not permit mem- 
bers of the opposite sex in the 
dorms after certain hours. 
Granted, being 1 8 or 20 doesn't 
necessarily make someone a 
brilliant decision maker, but 
by that age, most people DO 
use a concept called common 
sense. So why is this 1940's 
vintage rule in affect at the 
college? Maybe there is a fear 
of a man and a woman being 
together for an evening. God 
forbid they could be studying! 
Let's face it, if somethlngmore 

than studying is going to hap- 
pen, it's going to happen re- 
gardless of the roles. What's 
next? Lights out at 1 1 :00 pm to 
the sound of taps over the loud 
speaker and houriy bed checks 
for underclassmen? 

Let's move on to the phone 
system that is provided for tte 
dorm rooms. On the college 
behalf, at least they have pro- 
vided resident students with 
an (^^rtunity to have {Clones 
in their rooms. For any of you 
who have i^iones in your rooms 
you most likely know the firus- 
tration that went into trying to 
get your room "hooked up." 
After being put on hold or not 
being able to get through at all 
to the Bell Telephone Co. you 
Anally get a chance to speak to 
a Bell Rep. who gives you some 
type of access number. Then 
you have to go to Lasker Hall 
and pay a $44 hook-up fee. 
Let's discuss this $44 deal. We 
checked into exactly what it 
covers. It covers hooking up 
your line and any problems 
incurred throughout the year. 
We have not experienced nor 
heard of any problems with 
ours or anyone else's phone. 
And the hook, what's that, ba- 
sically flipping a switch? $44 

seems pretty steep for such a 
menial task. But, what the 
heU? We'reallmadeofmoney, 
right? DOUBT mi! After 
paying the $44 it's back to the 
pay phone to tell the Bell Rep. 
that you paid, they then check 
it out aid you have to wait to 
get your phone line connected. 
After two days our i^ne had 
still not been coniKcted. So, 
we called Lasker Hall and they 
said ttey had no record of us 
paying our $44 phone hook-up 
fee. What splendid record 
keeping! So, we took our re- 
ceipt to them and showed them 
the exact day on which we paid 
and a day and a half later we 
had a phone that actually 
worked- we not only could re- 
ceive calls, but could call out 

Why is it that colleges in 
general are always prompt 
about sending out bills, but 
when it comes to performing 
certain services PROCRAS- 
TINATION is the rule!?!? 
Until next time, 

Jay & Lenni 

PS. Write home, a roll of 
stamps costs less then a 
phone hook-up.

DVC Sells Yearlings 

at Atlantic 

Standardbred Sale 

By Dr. Hofsaess 

On the weekend of September 26, five yearlings Standardbred 
horses, bred and raised by DVC, were sold at the Atlantic 
Seaboaixl Standardbred Sale at the New Jersey Horse Parte. 

The top DVC horse, the filly "DVC Kissin Trick", sold for 
$5200. This is the highest price which has ever been paid for a 
DVC produced yeariing. The four yeariings sired by New Jersey 
stallions averaged $2,800 each. The fifth, sired by the college 
stallion "Skipper's Ensign" sold for $1 .200. 

Appreciation is extended to Jessica Edwards, Kate Flynn, 
Duane Fitzgarold, Lisa Jagielski. Heather Schaarschimdt, and 
Margrit Wolters for working with the yeariings, preparing the 
yearling for sale and participating in the sale. 

"Oops" Side Down 

By Tom Alberts 

World News Writer 

Sunday, in a pre- World Se- 
ries game ceremony, the United 
States Marine Corps color guard 
displayed the Canadian flag 
upside down. Canadian resi- 
dents were angered, because 
quite truthfully, how would we 
like it if Canada "accidently" 
displayed the United States ' flag 
upside down. Just for your in- 
formation, a flag being dis- 
played upside down is the uni- 
versal signal that the location 
of that flag is, under enemy 
control and that the people at 
that location need help. 

Fortunately Canadians have 
forgiven us for our serious blun- 
der, and have been making fun 
and money out of it. Oneway 
they have monopolized on it, is 
that thousands of signs, tee 
shirts, and buttons displaying 
the Canadian flag and "THIS 
SIDE UP" have been made. 
One vendor, selling the shirts 
for $14.99, sold fifty (50) in 
one hour. 

For the Tuesday, the 20th 

game, the two countries' col- 
ors were once again advanced 
(corrccUy), but this time, to 
show that there are no hard 
feelings, the Canadian gov- 
ernment aUowed the Marines 
to carry the Canadian colors, 
and for the Royal Canadian 
Mounted Police (R.C.M.P.'s) 
or Mountiens as they are bet- 
ter known to carry the United 
States' colors. Plus the Ma- 
rines had the announcer read 
over the P.A., a public apol- 
ogy for the blunder, it read like 
this: 'To correct this unfortu- 
nate error and to show their 
true respect for the Canadian 
people, the Marine Corps has 
requested the privilege of again 
carrying the national flag of 
Canada". This message re- 
ceived a cheer from the Sky 
Dome capacity crowd. 

As for the yet unnamed Ma- 
rine who put the flag upside 
down on the banner, the 
Braves' shortstop Jeff Blauser 
said, "I imagine he will still be 
doing push-ups over that."

We, the members of Ram 
Pages, are addressing this ar- 
ticle to the members of the 
classes of 94, 95, & 96. Our 
school paper is presently the 
best it has ever been in the 
history of our college. This is 
due to the efforts of the senior 
(class of 93) staff members. It 
has been through their organi- 
zation and determination that 
tt^ present Rampages staff has 
been able to pull together and 
work as a team. To be a team 
player requires the ability to 
work together with others to 
accomplish a goal and also the 
determination to seek that g(^ 
no matter what the cost. We are 
proud to say the Ram Page staff 

are all team players. 

Unfortunately, this will not be 
the case for very long. When our 
senior staff leaves, the college 
newspaper, YOUR paper, might 
go right along with them. While 
there will still be some team play- 
ers striving towards the goals of 
delivering to you a respectable 
college paptt, we are but a handful 
of what is necessary to make the 
Ram Pages what you see today. 
That is why we are a^ing you, the 
members of the classes of 94, 95, 
and 96, to join the Ram Pages 
staff. Without you, Delaware Val- 
ley College will not have a re- 
spectable newspaper and you will 
not have a representative voice. A 
college newspaper is the most pow- 

erful tool the students have to 
maintain communication be- 
tween students, faculty, and ad- 

It would be a tragedy if the 
p^r fails, especially with our 
CoUege's Centennial so close. 
So, if you can write articles, do 
investigative reporting, have 
computer skills, draw cartoons, 
OT simply want to learn, come 
visit the Rampages office on the 
second floor of the Student Cen- 
ter. A decision to join Ram 
Pages is not only a chance to 
become a team player, but also a 
hell of a lot of fun! 

The choice of voice is yours, 
classes of 1994, '95 and '96. 

What do 
I do?

The conditions of the class- 
rooms have become a disgrace 
to the college and soniewhat of 
a safety hazard to the students. 

Some of these conditions in- 
clude covers missing from the 
outlets, broken chairs, worn out 
tables and lecterns, the absence 
of screens in the windows, and 
some broken windows. 

It is a known fact the college 
is having financial difficulty 
and can not afford to replace all 
the furniture in the class rooms 
or to renovate the class build- 
ings. But, is it so difHcult to 
maintain the furniture and 
buildings that are already here? 
Many students the Ram Pages 
intenriewed seem to believe the 
deteriorating state of the class- 
rooms are a direct reflection of 
the financial condition of the 

A simple glance in any class- 
room on the DVC campus will 
give a ptTson the imi^ession 
this college is in a state of pov- 
erty. For example, many of the 
desks are coining apart, there 
are holes in many of the walls, 
and many of tht desks, tables 
and lecterns could use a coat of 
vamish. Unless glue, putty 
and paint, aid vamish are con- 
sidered major expenditures, 
there is really no excuse the 
classrooms should have 
reached the condition they are 
in now. 

Del Val has made some vis-

left handed desks, according to

"South Street, South Street," 
proclaims the ancient tune. 

Pres^Uly, however. South 
Street, in Philadelphia, PA, 
provides a meeting ground for 
people of allposuasions. Typi-

nights, thousands flock to this 
area for some: shopping, din-

If shopping is your thing,

ing stores abound, carrying 
everything from vintage ap- 
parel to hip-hop threads to 
leather S&Nf outfits. Jewelry 
of all sorts may also be found.

many shops. Ifyou are search-

In Reply to Block Memorial Chapel 

By Mary Vogt 

DVC Parent 

Dear Editor: 

I am writing in response to 
an article which appeared in 
the October 14 issue of Ram 
Pages, entiUed, "DVC Block 
Memorial Chapel Falls to De- 
cay", by Christopher Patzke. 
My husband aiKl I, and our 
son, Hm, share your interest in 
this beautiful little Chapel; we 
always visit it, when we are (m 
Campus. We can't understand 
why the Chapel isn't used 
either, paiticulariy, since it has 
such a significant history, and, 
even in its present state, is so 
unique. There is something 
somber about any Church or 

Chapel falling to disuse, but at 
Delaware Valley College, 
whose Campus and grounds 
speak so eloquently of God's 
handiwoik, in beauty so breath- 
taking and ever-changing, the 
emptiness of the Chapel is sad, 
because it seems as though we 
are unaware of, or, worse still, 
indifferent to Almighty God, 
who created it all. 

It saddens me, that Mr. 
Patzke received a negative re- 
sponse, when he fqyproached 
the Christian Fellowship and 
the Newman Club. These 
groups should, like Hillel, be 
interested in, and be support- 

ive of any efforts made toward 
the restoration of the Block 
Memorial Ou^l. It is not 
only possible to hold Jewish 
Sabbath Services and Chris- 
tian Services in the same 
Chapel, it is done on a regular 
basis, at Brandeis University, 
in Waltham, Massachusetts. 
My family and I attended a 
beautiful Mass in the Chapel 
there, when our daughter was 
in her Senior year at Brandeis, 
which is a Jewish College. 

Regarding the missing oil 
lamp - possibly, it was removed 
because it was considered to 
l)e a fire hazard; particulariy. 

in 90 old a stmcture. If it is 
found, pertiaps it could be 
wired for a bulb which, when 
turned on, gives the appear- 
ance of a flame. The s^ned 
glass win(k)ws should be re- 
installed, for all to enjoy. There 
is much less risk of breakage, 
by putting them where they 
belong, than in storing them in 
a bookcase, regardless of where 
the bookcase is located. 

While I regret very much 
that Mr. Patzke 's ideas con- 
cerning restoring the Chapel 
weren't well received, it is my 
hope, that all parties concerned 
will show maturity and a sense 

of fairness, when it OHnes to 
discussing Htvt work necessary 
to bring tfie stiucmral integrity 
back to the building itself. 

It is also my hope, that there 
will be a desire on the part of 
all the groups mentioned, to 
come together in a spirit of 
brotherhood and good will, so 
that, when the project (should 
it be approved by the school) 
has been completed, it will be 
a source of pride, not only at 
what has been accomplished, 
but that it is forthe good of the 
school and for all who attend 
Delaware Valley College, now, 
and in the future. 

The future of Ram 
Pages is extinction! 

Relative Chaos 

By Bruce Eaton 

Features Editor 

A bullet whizzes by your 
head as you run down a bomb- 
blasted street. Your home once 
sat on ttiis street. 

Your neighbors are dead, 
have disappeared, orbecn "de- 
tained". You ck) not care. In 
fact, you might even be happy. 
Your neig^rs are now your 
ethnic enemies, an obstacle to 
your freedom. 

The former Yugoslavian re- 
public. North Ossetia in south- 
em Russia. 

You are dancing in the streets, 
crying "Death to America", 
"Death to the United States". 
But you are happy, a new man 
is in power. 


You wake up a little later 
than usual, fatigued, but re- 
lieved. You unfold the paptt 
and see your face on the fhxit 
page. Elation, disbelief, a bit

Author unknown 

The American voter chose 
change in 1992. Although Bill 
Qinton did not receive a ma- 
jority of the popular vote, his 
election is a signal of global 
change. He represents a pro- 
gression from an old political 
theory, based on trickle-down 
economics and Cold War 
policy, to a new worid that 
could take decades to realign 
and stabilize. 

Change, by its very namre, 
creates chaos. However, chaos 
is a relative state of being. 

The chaos that an individual 
experiences upon the loss of a 
job, or living in a decaying 
irmer dty, or trying to survive 
in circumstances of anarchy 
are all different forms of an 
identical state. These levels of 
chaos all boil down to the basic 
emotion of fear, and presently 
there is a surplus of that ono- 
tion in our worid. 

President-elect Clinton's pri- 
mary responsibility, through 
fiscal, domestic, and foreign 
policy, is to allay the fears of 
the American people and even 
the world. He must create an 
atmosi^re of optimism for 
the future to relieve the strain 
of existence on our present- 
day Earth. 

Our Middle East adversaries 
have already begun to test our 
transitional government Iraq 
is moving weapons that they 
are TKi supposed to have. Iran 
has taken an American hos- 
tage, accusing him of being a 

In the United States, he must 
stimulate an economy that 
many argue is largely beyond 
his control. Even his own ana- 
lysts say that the results of his 
implementations will not be 
evident until a year after they 
first get through Congress. He 
seems to have adopted a situa- 
tion not unlike the man who 
only has one dollar and faces 
ten bums as he walks do wn the 

Most importantiy. Bill 
Clinton must enlist the apa- 
thetic and frightened youth of 
our country into his plans for 
the future. Youth and future 
are synonymous terms, and 
must be included in the "Bill 
Clinton plan". The youth must 
be motivated to become in- 
volved, intellectually if not 
physically, inthe futureof their 

Clinton appears to have be- 
gun this process during his 
campaign, appearing on MTV, 
inRolling Stone magazine, and 
on the Arsenio Hall Show. If 
he continues to include the 
ttem in his progressive gov- 
ernment, optimism will be- 
come the norm and dispel fear 
and create harmony. 
Uiuiealistic idealism? 
Let's hope not 

By Paul Schneider 


The classes of 1994, '95, md '96 
may not have a newspqxr beyond 
the closing of this school year. It 
will be up to the individuals of these 
classes whether or not they have a 
paper through which they will have 
the capability of voicing their opin- 
ions and concerns. 

As most students know, Del Val 
did not have much in the way of a 
student newspiq)er before the qmg 
of 1992. Since then there has been 
effort and progress made by the 
Ram Pages staff to provide a re- 
spectable new^K^r to the student 
body. Due to these efforts the stu- 
dents have the best paper Del Val 
has ever. Now, the editorial staff 
fears this isexactly what RamPages 
will become. History. 

Ram Pages will survive until the 
end of this year, but due to anumber 
of key people graduating, it is pos- 
sible that it may not continue. This 
is not a matter of boasting, instead it 
is fact There will not be a sufficient 
staff to run the pi^ effectively 
next year. 

The efforts of the Ram Pages staff 
has made it one of the most active 
and influential organizations on the 
Del Val campus. Through these ef- 
forts the staff is now working with 
the most up-to-dttc computer and 
I^otograiAy equipmoit as well as 
the only student operated busmess 
on campus. With all this, it's still 

Its takes team woik and coopera- 
tion from the entire student body to 
operate theschool paper. Hiisisthe 
students voice, the voice of 1200 
people, and if utilized effectively it 
can be die most powerful inurn- 
ment on the campus. It is in Ae 
hands of the students whetho' they 
wish to give this opportunity up or 
use it to their benefit 

Operating a paper can be a rigor- 
ous and £nistrating experience ox, 
as the current staff has chosen, it 
can be an invaluable tool used to 
control what happens in the envi- 
ronment they live in. A lack of 
interest will be devastating to the 
students of the classes of 1 994, "95 
and '96. To forfeit this control 
wouki lead to an apathetic envinm- 
ment and give them little or no 
voice in how they will live while 
here at Del Val. 

There are students who have pre- 
vious experience working withhigti 
school papers and yearbooks i^ 
would be incredible assets to the 
operations of Ram Pages and their 
class if they would join the team. 
Those students with no expoieiKX 
can become invaluable to their 
school paper and future here with 

As the Ram Pages staff has al- 
ready found, and not suiprisingly, 
when there are many peq^ to do a 
little work opposed to a few pe(^le 
to do much woik, the time involved 
for each is minimal. In order for a 
newspaper to be effective it needs a 
number of people who are dedi- 
cated and have the drive to succeed. 
Additionally, it needs those wt^ 
are not afraid to look into ''things" 
and ask the necessary questions to 
discover what is going on and who 
is making the decisions ii^di af- 
fect the lives of all the students. 
It will be the students of theclasses 
of '94, '95, and '96 who wiU suffer. 
Only Xi^LL the members of these 
classes can, havethe ability tomaio- 
tain control of your lives. It will be 
your decision if you decide to suc- 
cumb to total control and be herded 
about as a flock of sheq).

Would you be interested in a varsity

By CharUttie Walker 

Sports Editor 

A few interested giils are 
trying to fonn a ladies soccer 
club and they are in the pro-

approved the giris wiU start 

scrimages in the spring with 
local teams in Doylestown 
and the surrounding area.^ If 
there is enough interest in the 
club, hopefully the spoil can 
be recognized by the adminis- 
tration as a varsity spoil on the 
collegiate level within a few 

years. The spon would then 
eventually be a fall sport AU

field goals. 

The Aggies kefH up the pass- 
ing game in the second quarter 
as Ray Savage completed 
passes to Mike Ambolino, 
Brian Fricker, and Mike Sa- 
vare to drive down the field. 
This resulted in Dairen Swift 
running 29 yds. for a touch- 
down. The 2 point conversion 
try failed. 

Wesley wasn't going to be 
put down yet, tlwy scored a 
touchdown as Petie Davis ran 
9 yds. to put the Wolverines on 
the score board. 

With only 39 seconds left 
before halfdme Ray Savage ran 
1 yd. into the endzone for a 
touchdown and Darren Swift 
ran for the 2 point conversion. 
Athalftime the Aggies were up 
20-6 overthe Wolverines, who 
had been tied for sixth in the 
NCAA Division III South Re- 
gion coming into this game. 

The second half proved to be 
one of intense play and great 

Wesley began the third quar- 
ter with anottier Petie Davis 
touchdown. But only 4 plays 
later Ray Savage passed to 
Brian Fricker for the 7 yd. 
touchdown. The extra point, 
kicked by Todd Van Orden, 
was good. 

At the end of ttie third quar- 
ter the Wolverines came alive 
as they scored another touch- 
down. This narrowed the Ag- 
gies lead to 27-20. 

In the fourth quarter Wesley 
started the scoring after start- 
ing at their own 45 yd. line. 
This tightened the gap to 27- 
26. The Wolverines quarter- 
back tried to pass for the 2 
point conversion only to have 
it knocked down by Bill May- 
nard. The Aggies still held on 
to their lead with 14:43 re- 

Wesley had the crowd be- 
hind than as they drove down- 
field on their next possessi(m. 
They reached our 1 yd. line 
where they fumbled the ball. 
This resulted in a DVC recov- 
ery by Steve Wagner. 

The Aggies possession did 
not render much progress and 
on 4th down Corby Derr's 
punt was partially blocked. 
This gave the ball back to 
Wesley on the DVC 27 yd. 
line. The Wolverines were 
stopped at the Aggies 7 yd. 
line, but took the lead with a 
Desjardien 39 yd. field goal. 

Del Val was hungry to win 
and was not out of the game 
with only 3:17 left. After the 
kickoff , Ray Savage completed 
his pass to Jonathan Wenner 
for 36 yds. This put the Aggies 
at the Wesley 25 yd. line. Three 
plays latter the Aggies found 
themselves at a critical posi- 
tion. It was the 4th down with 
one yard to go at the 1 5 yd. line 
and Mike Savare ran 2 yds. for 
the first down. This drive cul- 
minated with the Van Orden 
field goal that sealed the vic- 
tory for the Aggies. 



t teas uhig win fbr 
the program, but if0 
a great win for the 
players, " -Coach Bill 

When Todd Van Orden was 
asked about the winning field 
goal he stated, "The whole team 
set me up for the field goal 
during the whole game, but the 
fumble recovery was the most 
crucial play along with 
Wenner's catch." 

Ray Savage had a remark- 
able day by completing 26 
passes for 320 yds. He has 

now passed for 1 ,207 yds. this 
season - making him the first 
Aggie quaiteibadc in 8 yrs. to 
pass for over 1 ,000 yds. 

In the previous week Del Val 
was defeated by the Grey- 
hounds of Moravian College 
28-14. The Greygounds (5-3, 
MAC 4-3) were charged by 
their homecoming day crowd 
to out-play the Aggies. 

Going into halftime Mora- 
vian was up 13-0. But, the 
Aggies came out strong in the 
third quarter as Ray Savage 
threw a 4 1 yd. pass to Jonathan 
Wennerforatouchdown. Todd 
Van Olden kicked the extra 
point, narrowing the score to 

The rest of the third quarter, 
however, was dominated by 
Moravian. They scored two 
touchdowns before the time ex- 
pired in the quarter. This ex- 
tended their lead to 28-7. 

In the fourth quarter Mora- 
vian put in their reserve play- 
ers and the Aggies moved the 
ball downfield. Ray Savage 
made completions to Wenner, 
White, and Fricker to result in 
a 4 yd. touchdown run by 
Fricker. Todd Van Orden suc- 
cessfully kicked the extra point, 
but tfw final score was 28-14 
for Moravian. 

The Aggies are now 3-6 over- 
all and 2-6 in the MAC. Next 
week Del Val will face Wid- 
ener University (2-6-1). This 
is the school which Coach 
Manlove coached for 23 years 
before coming to Del Val. 
When asked about the game 
coach Manlove stated, 'To our 
players Widener is just another 
football team ," he stressed that 
the game is important because, 
"It is the last game on the sched- 
ule, so it is a big one in that 
regard." Nevertheless, itshould 
prove interesting to see if the 
Aggies can pass by the Pio- 
neers of Widener

Garth Brooks 

at the Spectrum 

By Betsy Vogt 

Staff Writer 

Tickets went on sale Septem- 
ber 19, 1992 at 10am. By 
1 1 :22am, the concert was sold 
out. That's right, it only took 
one hour and twenty-two min- 
utes to sell out the Spectrum 
Stadium for October 23. 

The loyal fans were doing the 
wave and chanting as they 
waited impatiently for Garth 
Brooks to take the stage. As the 
music began, I glanced at the 
clock. It was 9:22pm when the 
opening notes of "Rodeo" be- 
gan and the 1992 CMA and 
ACM Entertainer of the Year 
came up through the stage floor 
and began to sing. I had been 
waiting for months to hearCarth 
Brooks live in concert. 1 have 
been to quite a few concerts and 
this was definitely the most in- 
credible one I have experieiKed. 

Garth sang songs from No 
££!]££&, Garth Brooks. Ropin' 
the Wind, and The Chase . He 
sang "Unanswered Prayers" as 
te stood alone on the stage play- 
ing his guitar. He said he did 
shows like that for three years 
when he was playing in clubs in 

Oklahoma. Brooks received the 
crowds' fullest attention when 
he announced that he was NOT 
retiring but would take time out 
(approximately eight months) to 
be with his wife Sandy and baby 
daughter Taylor. Throughout 
the concert. Garth had received 
hundreds of roses, stuffed ani- 
mals, and baby clothes. 

He had the crowd on their feet 
and the Spectrum rocking on its 
foundation when his guitar 
player, Ty England played the 
first three notes of "Friends in 
Low Places," and the infamous 
"third verse" was sung. When 
"The Thunder Rolls" was per- 
formed, brilliant lights looked 
like lightening across the sky. 
Finally, he closed the show with 
the award wiiming hit "The 
Dance." However, the crowd 
brought him back for a stirring 
rendition of "Keep Your Hands 
to Yourself." 

As Garth Brooks left the Spec- 
trum stage and the fantastic show 
ended, I akeady began making 
plans for his next perfonnance 
in the Spectrum. 

Impatient Transition 


Trees like skinny fingers reach 

And scratch the pale blue ^y. 

They whip the cold gusty wind, out of breath 

And wait for her to die. 

Then in a solemn pause, they Ueitn for her 

WiU or will she not succumb, . 
And give up her last icy breath 
Pass away and die. 
. The anxious trees gasp impadently 
' For a wann breath of spring. 
So that they may release, 
Ttnir bound up buds, which are locked inside. 
/The fingers of the reaching limbs, 
Jhat scratch the blue silent sky. 
Just hold their breath and hope to death, 
T!k cold gusty winds will die ... die ... die. 

Alice in Cliains 




By Dan Cormican 

Staff Writer 

Alice in Chains' Face Lift 
was the perfect example of a 
slightly above average first al- 
bum. It included "Man in the 
Box." "We Die Young," and 
"It Ain't Like That" which are 
all brilliant songs, but together 
display typical rookie poor 
song selection. A lot of prom- 
ise was shown on the all acous- 
tic "SAP," which was more 
even and textured. Some of the 
awesome power of the new LP 
can be seen in "Would" for the 
SlnslfiS soundtrack. Just to 
forwam you, "Would" is wL 
the best song on the new LP- 
Din, and the new single "Them 
Bones" may be the worst. The 
songs display a healthy range 
of styles firom the grungy "Sick- 
man" to the ballady "Down in 
a Hole." That's quite a range. 
Anotherexampleof the band's 
range is the agility of its mem- 
bers, including guitarist Jerry 
Cantrell, who contributes lead 
vocals to better than half the 
songs on the album, and singer 
Layne Staley, who contributes 
various guitar parts. The lyrics 
are also surprisingly introspec- 
tive, dealing with the pain of 
drug addiction, fear of death, 
low self opinion, and distmst 
of others. Dill is the perfect 
example of how to avoid the 
sophomore album slump.

ttM Drug EntorMflMnt AoMiey (D.EA.) glv»« an Important taNc 
problam - dniga and alcohol 

By Terry McAncMy 

PhoU^rapher and Staff Writer 

Drugs, prevention, interven- 
tion, addiction, who can be 
addicted, and how to get help 
were all topics discussed at the 
Drug Awareness meeting on 
Oct 20, sponsored by Lt Ma- 
rable of the crime prevention 
unit on campus. Speaking on 
the topic of prevention and in- 
tervention was Mr. John Smith, 
agent from the Philadelphia 
Office of the D.E. A. Mr. Smith 
talked about the D.E.A.'s on- 
going fight to slow the traf- 
ficking and distribution of ille- 

gal dnigs both here in America 
and the countries where the 
drugs are grown. He discussed 
how the D.E.A. tries to intro- 
duce new crops as alternatives 
to growing the plants that pro- 
duce drugs. What the D,E.A. 
is doing here at home was also 
discussed. How they are try- 
ing to slow the entry of dnigs 
into the country and going af- 
ter the people diat sell the dmgs. 
He also focused on how they 
are trying to educate the (mblic 
to an awareiKss that illegal 

drugs are not acceptable. 

New Britain Boro Police 
Chief Sempowski then spoke 
about the laws and penalties 
for the possession, selling, and 
trafficking of drugs. While the 
list of fmes and jail time could 
take up an entire page by them- 
selves, the message was that 
you will serve jail time and pay 
heavy fmes if you are arrested 
and found guilty. If you are 
found guilty, your fines and 
jail time go on your record and 
they do not come off Not 

many employers will hire 
someone with a history relat- 
ing to dnigs. 

The meeting was presoited 
by Lany Bracken, represent- 
ing the Penn Fbundation, who 
was a former D.E.A. client 
himself Mr Bracken talked 
about being addicted to drup. 
He a^ed the audience to de- 
fine in their minds their picture 
of a diemically dependent per- 
son. It turns out that most 
chemically dcpexvknt people 
are quiet, sensitive, shy, mod- 
est, good people . Not the strag- 
gly, homeless person, stagger- 
ing along holding onto his 
bottle. A chemically ctepen- 
dent person could be sitting 
right next to you, fully func- 
tional, and an active part of 
society. The definition of a 
chemically dependent person 
is someone who NEEDS the 
sul»tance to feel normal. And 
although the person might have 
rK)t used the substance for a 
while, to prove to themselves 
that they don*t need the sub- 
stance, they always go back. 
And most dependent people 
try to get help. Mr. Bracken 
tried for years to get his family 
doctor to send him to a rehab 
clinic. Instead of recognizing 
the problem, the doctor just 
told him to cut back on his 
drinking some. According to 

Mr. Bracken, most doctors only 
get about five hours of training 
on substance depenctency and 
abuse. All Mr. Bracken wan^ 
was for someone to tell him he 
was an alcoholic. Finally, he 
went to the Penn Foundation, 
and received the help he was 
looking for. The point of his 
presmtation was to hopefully 
he^ someone to realize that 
they might be substance de- 
pendent, or get someone think- 
ing about someone they know 
that might be a dependmt per- 

After all the guest speakers 
were done, they answered 
questions. TIk questions were 
too numerous to list in this 
article, but did represent an 
awaroKss in the few students 
in attendance who showed that 
they were thinking about what 
they heard. While some of the 
questions were about the fair- 
ness of losing personal prop- 
erty over drugs, most had to 
deal with who is chemically 
dependent, and how and where 
to get help or get more infor- 
mation on being chemically 
dependent. Anyone can be 
chemically dependent, but 
there are people and groiqjs 
-ready to help. However, you 
must first admit that you are 
(ieppnde.nt, and he. willing to 
get help, otherwise rK>-one can 
help you. 

Shabby Classrooms

time the collegegotleft handed 

Other stu(knts were less op- 
timistic and felt genuinely in- 
sulted by being subjected to an 
educational environment that 
is in such a state of deteriora- 
tion. As quoted by Justin Gei- 
ger, a senior, "the conditions 
(of the classrooms) are poor 
and distracting from an educa- 
tional point of view. They give 
the school an unprofessional 

Reaction from faculty mem- 
bers was mix^ on this issue. 
Dr. Handler of die Business 
department replied, "I've never 
really given it mudi thought, 
but I have no qualms about the 
conditions of the classrooms." 

Dr. Mertz, of the biology de- 
partment, had a different point 
of view wh«i he stated "I think 
the classrooms are getting old 
and beat up." 

There is also a going concem 
about the overall reaction these 
conditions may be having on 
prospective students. Student 
government president Rob 
Hughes believes the shabby 
condition of the class rooms 
"discourages prospective stu- 
dents" from attending Del Val. 
He also remarked tiiat some 
desks are "unsafe and should 
be fix6d before someone gets 

When tfiese concerns were 
taken to Frank Burk, head of 
maintenance, he provided 

many etKX)uraging words in 
regards to correcting these cur- 
rent conditions. His explana- 
tion for tiiese conditions is the 
age and constant use or abuse 
by the students. 

According to Burk, the main- 
tenance department is allotted 
ments. He said that some of 
tills year's budget went towards 
purchasing new desks, and 
there are plans to eventually 
refurnish all die classrooms. 

There was a broken window 
in Feldman 1 02 for about three 
weeks. When Buik was in- 
formed of this, he took imme- 
diate action to have the win- 
dow replaced. 

He said die reason why some 
of these conditions have not 
been addressed is because he 
simply is not aware of them, 
and there is not enough person-

on ttM APR floor al "HurdM MyttorlM on Campuo" , 
by SAC 

On the daik and dreary night of October 
26th, three murders occuned on the campus 
of Delaware Valley College. The victim's 
were Danielle Higgins, Jennifer Duran and 
" Angelique". TIk weajxm which was used to 
lull Danielle and Jennifer was poison and for 
"Angelique" it was a fatal blow to the head. 

The suspects were as follows: "Rocky" 
played by David Nonnan, "Anita" played by 
Holly Walker, and "Jigger" played by Charlie 
King. There were many motives for their 
actions including: a competitim between sis- 
ters for the same job andaclaimthat"Anita's" 
husband "Rocky" slept with "Angelique" 
and got her pregnant. The catch is "Anita" 
and "Angelique" are sisters. 

As the participating audience gathered 
around each of the suspects, the suspects 
answered numerous questions about the mur- 
ders and lu)w much they kr^w about the 
situation. As the night progressed, tiie audi- 
ence received many clues which eventually 
revealed who the murderer was. To evciy 
one's surprise it was "Anita" who murdered 
the unsuspecting victims. 

There were many prizes given out includ- 
ing: two water guns, six tee-^rts and a grand 
prize of $50 dollars. The winner of the grand 
prize was Stef^anie PeHx. 

DVC was visited by fire 
tnick # 19 in an emergency call 
last week. 

While security officer, Joe 
Reading, was patrolling the 
grounds behind Lake Archer 
on Wednesday, October 28, he 
noticed smoke emanating from 
behind the bams near the 
President's House. He called 

back to security for fire extin- 
guishers and assistance. The 
Hre company, directed by 
Deputy Chief Samuel Cramer, 
responded within five minutes 
oftlKcall. The cause was the 
muldi piled at the back of the 
building. "If the leaves weren't 
in it wouldn't bum," says Matt 
Maitinas, DVC student on the 

scene. He and Q-aig Kii^sky

Roth farm becomes a living part of DVC 

By Caryn Derr-Daugherty 

CUunpua News Editor 

The Beginning 

In January of 1992, Mrs. 
Edythe Roth presented DVC 
with a very historical piece of 
property. The 174 acre farni, 
(tonated by Roth, is being used 
for the puqx)se of agricultural, 
education aiul research. 

The Workers 

Dr. John Avery, Oiairperson 
of Agribusiness l^re at DVC, 
and his wife are heading this 
incr^lible restoration process. 
Work began in mid- July of this 
year. Three students and two 
inmates from a local institute, 
began going through the touse 
and bam and preparing it for 
restoration. Currently there are 
6-7 students from DVC work- 
ing on the farm. 

The House 

The house, located on the 
acreage, is believed to have 
been built between the years 
1790-1830. The Kulp Home- 
stead is a 1 2 room stucco over 
stone structure. The inside 
floor and ceiling beams aiKl 
the home's six fireplaces are 
all original. 

As restoration on the house 
begins, stuctents and volun- 
teers will try to retain all of the 
original items in the tK)me. 
Only when certain codes and 
safety measures are required, 
will modem fixtures be used. 

The Barn 

The stone bam is estimated 
to have been built between 
1840-1890. The constmction 
of the bam matcl^s that done 

by the itinerant Geraian stone 
masons who worked in this 
area during that period. 

The ground ftoor level has 
be^ restored to its original 
layout. It includes stalls to 
house 12 head of cattle, four 
horses, calves and/or sheep. 
Once the fann is opened, it will 
house animals true to its pe- 
riod. Also located on the ground 
level is a room believed to be 
used to bottle milk after milk- 
ing the cows. As students 
cleans up the bam before res- 
toration began, several origi- 
nal milk bottles were unearthed. 

The u{^r floor of the bam 
once contained both a drive 
floor and a loft area. After res- 
toration is completed, the left 
side of the drive will be used to 
store machinery and displays

Dr. Avery, head of the restoration process, peers into the underground 
storage cellar located on the side of the house at the Roth Farm 

New, RottiFarm,1992 

and the right side will serve as a 
gathering area for educational 

Benefits to the Community 

The Roth Farm will provicte a 
variety of important services to 
the conunimity. It will serve as 
a facility for consumers to ex- 
perience and leam how food 
and fiber are produced and mar- 
keting, an opportunity for 
schools and other groups to 
preset programs about food 
and fiber, and enable people to 
develop an ai^reciation for 
some realities of modem agri- 
culture in direct contrast with 
"the good old days". 

Phases of the Project 

There are basically three 
phases to this big project. Phase 
one (summer '92)- preparation 
of site including; safety repairs 
to the home and bam and the 
gathering equifxnent and ani- 
mals. The second phase (Fall 
'92)- conducting an open house, 
recognition of Mrs. Roth and 
friends, and develofHnent of an 
infonnational brochure, created 
by the Agribusiness seniors. 
Phase three (Winter '92 & 
Spring '93)- plan cn^ rotations 
and livestodc operations, publi- 
cize and iMXHnote the "Center" 
and prepare and schedule events 
to be hekl at the farm. So far, 
Avery is right on track. The 
official 0pm House will be held 

on December 5. 
vited to attend. 

All are in- 

Thank You!! 

Hie Roth Living Museum 
is an exceptional piece of his- 
tory. It will most definitely 
serve as a vital leaming in- 
strument to all those who visit 
it Various groups, like the 4- 
H club, are already becoming 
a very active part in the resto- 
ration. The farm provides an 
opportunity to demonstrate the 
broad spectnim of agriculuiral 
production, processing and 
marketing practices to people 
of all ages and origins. Con- 
gratulations to Dr. Aveiy , Mrs. 
Avery, the students, groups 
and everyone else who have 
wholeheartedly dedicated 
themselves to this extraordi- 
nary project. Also a thank you 
to Mrs. Roth for her gracious

Frank Mass^ino 

By Jen MiMko 


There is a man on cam> 
pus who sets up a tranpo- 
raiy camp in the Admis- 
sions building. His name is 
Frank Massino. 

I say temporary because 
he is often on the road in 
search of students who 
would complement the at- 
mosphere of the College 
and would also fit well into 
the Delaware Valley Col- 
lege multi-dimoisional jig- 
saw puzzle. 

If you have not guessed, 
Mr. Massino is Delaware 
Valley's "Number One 
Recruiter." He woiks in 
close consort witti the Di- 
rectorof Admissions, Steve 
Zenko, to build the com- 
plex network we know as 
the student body. 

Mr. Massino says he 
"could not have a better 
\xxs." Both men are work- 
ing diligently to make our 
school known to prospec- 
tive students. Mr. Massino 
feels that one of Delaware 

Valley's strongest 
the nin^es i s the per- 
sonal attention that it 
provides to its stu- 
dents. As a student 
you know die staff 
and professors, but 
more importantly, 
they know you. 

Mr. Massino at- 
tended Temple Uni- 
versity and majored 
in Business Admm- 
istration. While at 
Temple, he played varsity foot- 
ball with none other than Bill 

For a time after college, Mr. 
MassirK) co2K;hed food>aU for 
various institutions, which is 
how he originally came to 
Delaware Valley College. He 
made die switch over to ad- 
missions over six ^ars ago 
and has continued in the de- 
partment ever since. 

Mr. Massino is married to 
wife, Shirley, and has two diil- 
dren, Tbny and Maggi. He is 

an outdoorsman at heart and 
truly enjoys skiing andswim- 
ming. His favorite haunt is 
the Jersey shore. 

Mr. Massino 's warm and 
friendly personality make 
him a true asset to Delaware 
Valley's recniiting efforts. 
His advice to students: "Don't 
be afraid to climb the first 
hill or take that chance. Sur- 
vivors make it!" 


Here is your opportunity to address your

By Jen Hubbard 

Staff Writer 

The tad InsllwM^wt smIm on poflulion 

The smoke spews from tall 
black smoke stadcs creating 
coiKiitions deadly to the envi- 

The smoke was not released 
in trace amounts. Instead itkept 
pouring out endlessly, giving 
the air around it a strong, un- 
healthy odor. 

The stacks release toxins that 
have escaped the filtration pro- 
cess. These toxins are harmful 
to forests, crops, people and 

Smoke stacks have been a 
major environmental polluter 
since the seventeenth century 
when every home had a fur- 
nace to bum coal. Today, ev- 
ery family has tte average of 
two cars, each consisting of a 
muffler which can be compared 
to a mini smoke stack. 

Problems with tJw environ- 
ment have been of tremendous 
concern since the seventeentfi 
century. Palls of black smoke 
covered the cities, much like 
LA'S modem smog problem. 

These gases, released at 
ground level, can damage sen- 
sitive plant and animal life in 
the immediate vicinity. 

Hundreds of poUutants are 
emitted into ttie air in the in- 
dustrialized and developing 
worid. These pollutants are di- 
vided mto primary and sec- 
ondary pollutants. 

Primary pollutants are emit- 
teddirectly into the atmosphere 
from sources such as power 
plants, factories, automobiles, 
and residential furnaces. This 

includes the smoke stacks and 
ttie cars which are driven around 
every day. 

Primary pollutants also come 
from natural sources such as 
forest fires and volcanic erup- 
tions. They include sulfur di- 
oxide, nitrogen oxides, ethyl- 
ene, other volatile compcxmds, 
and heavy metals. 

Secondary pollutants fonn 
when certain inimary pollut- 
ants undergo chemical 
changes in the atmosi^re. 

Affectson Forests and Crops 

Secondary pollutants of 
most concern to crop and for- 
est resources are photochemi- 
cal oxidants and acidic depo- 
sition (populariy called acid 
rain). ^ 

Acid deposition is not di- 
recdy damaging to forests and 
crops as we once thought it 

However, with the increase 
in large power plants over the 
past 20 years ai^ an increase in 
car sales, acid rain- resulting 
from sulfur dioxide and nitro- 
gen oxides- has become of 
greater concern on a regional 
and national pen^)ective. 

Sulfur dioxides and nitrogm 
oxides can be transported hun- 
dreds of miles and can be found 
in elevated concentrations in 
rural and forested areas. 

Just as the ocean water pro- 
vides nutrients and oxygen to 
aquatic plants, the ocean of air 
provides chemicals essential to 

terrestrial plants and animals. 
The atmosplKre, like the ocean, 
has the ability to spread, mix, 
fflid transport in its currents 
any polluting chemical relea%d 
into it. 

These airborne pollutants can 
be transported and deposited 

in our forests. 

Forests are part of a com- 
plex, interdependent, commu- 
nity of plants and animals, and 
all the organisms of this com- 
munity depend on each other. 
Aircl^mistry and quality, soil 
quantity, and rainfall provide 
the harmonious environment 
for life. 

When pollutants enter this 
environment ttiey disrupt the 
natural processes of our for- 

The rain and clouds that cany 
nutrients into the forests may 
also carry pollutants from 
smoke stacks and cars. The 
airborne poUutants can enter 
the trees through the leaves 
and roots. 

Many chemical compounds, 

including some of the nutrients 
plants need, are in normal pre- 
cipitation. However, precipi- 
tation can also carry the pollut- 
ants into the forests. 

The toxic metals that are 
present in trace amounts in 
polluted aircan mhibitthe con- 
sumj^on of needed nutrients. 
This damage can increase a 
trees susceptibility to winter 

Crops are another plant form 
that are damaged in some way 
by the pollutants. Some cot- 
ton, alfalfa, soybean, and to- 
bacco cultivars are known to 
be very sensitive to sulfur di- 
oxide eni'tted from power 
plants and cars. 

TlK pollutants from smoke 
stacks arul cars are a concem to 
forests, crops, and the human 

The smoke from industrial 
stacks has always been a major 
contributor tt) the air pollution 
of cities. The small particu- 
lates of smoke cause adverse 
health effects. Long term ex- 
posure to the contaminated air 
with the small particulates 
present can result in respira- 
tory diseases, like bronchitis 
and lung cancer. 

Over shorter periods, smoke 
can agitate the ccmditions of 
people suffering from asthma, 
bronchitis, emphysema, and 
cardiovascular ailments. 

Only recently have govem- 

ments tried to regulate smoke 
emissions. Most reductions are 
accomplished by a shift from 
tfie use of coal to cleaner fuels, 
like oil and natural gas, and by 
the use of various control de- 
vices to remove particulates 
f rcHn exhaust gases before they 
are released into the air. 

Outrageous pollution now 
occurs only accictentally or il- 
legally in the U.S., but envi- 
ronmentalists continue to 
worry about pollution, espe- 
cially in uncbrde veloped coun- 
tries, because it will and has 
reached leth^ll levels. 

According to National Wild- 
life, more than a ton of toxic 
waste i» produced each year 
for every man, womai, and 
duld in the country. One bun- 
dled and thirty five billion 
pounds are discharged into the 
waterways, while billicxis more 
are released into ttie air. 

The quality of human health 
and our natural envirormient 
depoids on actequate pollution 
control. Public awareness as to 
the extent of pollution may 
eventually force governments 
to undertake more effective 
anti-pollution measures th^ 
those currently in use. 

There is only one natural en- 
vironment, and if we fail to act, 
and if current trends continue, 
some envirormierttalists {»edict 
a national crisis by early next 
century, or even sooner.

In Response to Last Issue's Reply on the 
Block Chapel 

oj. «• •»•»■ *»■' 

Dear Editor, 

I feel I must respond to 
Mary Vogt's aiticle in the No- 
vember 1 1th issue of the Ram 
Pages coiKeming the chapel. I 
do not know wtere she ob- 
tained the idea that decay and 
disuse are one and the same. 
The chapel certainly needs re- 
pairs at the least, and it would 
be nice to see it restored, as 
well as many other areas of the 
campus, but it most certainly is 

The Newman Qub, of which 
I am president, used to hold 
Sunday Mass in the chs^l until 
our chaplain passed away. We 
recently gained a new chaplain 
and hope to hold services there 

again soon. Unfortunately the 
layout of the chapel is too for- 
mal for our m^tings which 
consist of some prayer and in- 
foimal discussion. The Chris- 
tian Fellowship holds Bible 
study in the chapel at least one 
night a week. Hillel, unfortu- 
nately, one of the smallest reli- 
gious groups on campus, does 
not use the chapel as a group, 
to my kiM)wledge. Many stu- 
(knts go to the chapel on their 
own time to pray, meditate, or 
play the piano. Ont of the great 
things about the ch{^)el is that 
itis never locked. Students may 
go there any time they want. 1 
hope this will never change. 

On another note, Chris 
Patzke is amemberof the New- 
man Gub, and, we hope, will 
remain so. His comments in 
his aiticle upset many people. 
Those were his opinions and 
not i^cessarily ours. He has 
every right to express his opin- 
ion in whatever way he 
chooses. While the Newman 
Qub, as a whole, felt that this 
project was beyond our scope 
as far as time and money were 
concerned; I made Chris the 
head of a one man committee 
on this project I have explained 
that the club members barely 
have time to attend the meet- 
ings and will not likely be able 

to help him . Chris is very deter- 
mined to succeed in this project 
and has kept me informed as to 
his progress, which 1 am very 
interested in. 

I did not feel the need to 
respond to Chris' article as I 
can communicate directly with 
him. 1 did feel the need to cor- 
rect Mary Vogt's misinforma- 
tion. 1 would also like to meet 
Mary and Tim Vogt in die fu- 
ture, if that is possible, to work 
with them on this project 

Anyone wishing to contact 
me may do so by calling 230- 
9138. or stopping by Berkow- 
itz 105.

Shabby Classrooms Reply 

Dear Editor, 

The Ram Pages stoiy on 
"Shabby Qassroomi" defi- 
nitely touched on an issue 
which needs to be addressed. It 
is a reflecticHi on the college 
but more importantly it is a 
reflection on the students. Non- 
iDutine maintenance does not 
need to be performed on a desk, 
door, or wall which has not 
been abused. Let's take a hard 
look in the mirror and ask 
ourselves/'What hav? I done 
to improve the appearance of 
this school?" We should at least 
be able to say we have not done 
anything to diminish its ap- 
pearance. We can complain 
about tlK maintenance all we 
want, but we are the ones who 
scrawl obscenities on the desks, 

Dear Editor: 

I am writing to you concern- 
ing the lauiulry facilities. Yes- 
terday 1 tried ctoing my laundry 
in the basement of Ulman and 
although 1 put my clothes 
through 2 wash cycles ($2) they 
still were not rinsed of soap and 
did not seem to have gone 
through a spin cycle (they were 
dripping!). I then removed 
them and put them in a differ- 
ent waslKr which finally got 
them clean. 

That is iK)t the end. Upon 
putting them in the only empty 
dryer aiKl depositing $.50 the 
dryer did not woik correctly! I 
had to bring my clotties bade to 

my room and hang than any- 
where there was room. This 
morning I again tried to dry 
them, firstchecking each dryer 
to be sure they were connected 
properly. Upon depositing 
another $.50 the dryer again 
did not work! As any normal 
person, 1 was quite angry! 
Now I am out $3.00 and have 
clothes hanging all over my 
room drying. Why doesn't the 
school keep appliances in 
proper working order? It 
wouldn't take much time, ef- 
fort, or money to ensure that 
students can wearclean clothes.

library oibicles and bathroom 
walls. I see some new left- 
handed desks ha ve already been 
the targets of the vandals hands. 
We are the (Hies Mtiio abuse 
doors, sinks, and toilets. We 
students destroy the djpg/t^x- 
ance of this school then expect 
maintenance to make it all nice 
and pretty again. Repairs cost 
money and we are all aware of 
the financial difficulties this 
college faces. This is not just 
an issue of appearance! It's an 
issue of money and possibly 
the survival of this school. 

Certainly the majority of 
stu(tents do not paiticipate in 
the vandalism of this school, 
but a non-confrontational ap- 
proach to those who do give 

our school over to the minor- 
ity. Wc all experierKe peer 
pressure and we exert fix>m it 
Let's do something positive 
with our energy and make 
school vandalism an act which 
is not acceptable and will not 
be ignored. Prospective stu- 
dents may see a school in need 
of some repair, but if they see 
a student body committed to 
saving this school through co- 
operative efforts with the ad- 
ministration and faculty, they 
just might want to be involved 
in that kind of atmosphere. 
Change does not start with 
better maintenance, it starts 
with ourselves. Show pride in 
your school and get involved!

Faculty and Staff Apparently 

Do Not Care 
Dear Editor, 

I have thoroughly enjoyed 
the new addition to the paper - 
the column by Jay & Lenni. I 
applaud their bold statements. 
It is good that some students 
have finally found the courage 
to speak out about the short- 
comings of the college. 

But it seems that is where it 
all ends. Okay, Jay & Lenni 
have had their say and I usually 
hear a couple of faculty or id- 
ministration members gripe 
about what they have said. But 

faculty and staff should re- 
spond publically, not under 
their breaths. Don't they care 
enough to voice how they feel 
about our concerns. Even if it 
is in backlash of what we say, 
shouldn't they at least show 
they care a little and respond to 
us through the Ram Pages. 
Their ignorance makes me look 
at them in a new light - one 
which has no respect and they 
have little guts.

Aggies Fall to the Widener Pioneers 31-16 

By Charlotte Walker 

Sporta Editor 

On November 14, the Ag- 
gies traveled to Chester, PA 
where tJwy were defeated by 
the Widener University Pio- 
neers 31-16. Tliis marked the 
end of the Aggies season, tlw 
first year of coaching by Bill 
Manlove at DVC, and an excit- 
ing season for all of the players 
and coaches. The Aggies fin- 
ished 3-7 (2-6 MAC) for the 
fourth year in a row, but with 
great improvements. 

The game between Del Val 
and Widener is known as the 
Hall of Fame Game and the 
winner keeps the Keystone 
Cup. Del Val has had the cup 
for the past year, but they will 
have to wait until next year to 
attempt to win the Keystone 
cup back. 
This was a very special game 
as Coach Manlove faced the 
team he coached up to a year 

The Aggies opened up the 
game quickly by scoring a 
touchdown in the first 2 min- 
utes of play. The drive began 
as Darren Swift returned the 
kickoff for 42 yds. giving Del 
Val the ball on the Widener 49 
yd. line. On the next play Ray 
Savage completed his pass to 
Mike Savare for a gain of 1 1 
yds. An offsides penalty on 
the Pioneers moved the Aggies 
another 5 yds. downfield. Brian 


Aggie Quarterback Ray Savaga lead tha team thisaaaaon 

White ran for 6 yds. on the next 
play to set up Darren Swift's 
27yd. nm for the touchdown, 
(Swift nished for 397 yds. this 
season). Todd Van Orden 
kicked the extra point, putting 
the Aggies up 7-0. 
The pioneers came right back 
with a 24 yd. touchdown pass, 
leaving the score at 7-7 by the 
end of tiie first quarter of play. 
In the second quarter the Ag- 
gies struck back on a time con- 
suming and penalty riddled 
drive. The offense moved 
down the field with Ray Sav- 
age leading the shotgun forma- 

tion. The drive began as Sav- 
age completed a screen pass to 
Brian White for a 2 yd. gain 
and was followed by a 13 yd 
catch by Brian Pricker. After 
the first of three penalties in 
the drive. Savage completed 
his pass to Mike Ambolino for 
13 yds. Savage again found 
Pricker for another 11 yds., 
which was added to by a pair of 
completions to White for 15 
yds. and 9 yds. Chi tiie next 
play Darren Swift mshed for 7 
yds. The drive culminated as 
Savage passed 29 yds. to 
Jonathan Wenner for the touch- 

down, (Wenner led the Aggie 
receivers with 382 yds. this 
season). On the extra point 
there was a bad snap - resulting 
in Swift's attempt to run for the 
2-point conversion, but he 
couldn't get into the endzone. 
On Widener' s next drive, they 
came right back with another 
touchdown. The pioneers 
moved down the field by a com- 
bination of completions and 
penalties against the Aggies. 
The touchdown came six plays 
latter as Bill Bailey ran 20 yds. 
into the endzone, (Bailey was 
the top rusher of the day with 
1 14 yds.). The extra point kick

by Jim Waik was good. 

The Aggies were down 14- 
13, but they did not become 
discouraged ^theirlast drive 
of the 1st half. Savage again 
moved the Aggies downfield. 
Savage made completions to 
Mike Ambolino for 31 yds., 
and to Dave Sinclair for 31 
yds. These plays helped to set 
up a 22 yd. field goal by Todd 
Van Orden with only 1 :25 left 
in the half. At halftime the 
score stood at DVC 16 - Wid- 
ener 14. 

As the case has been with 
many of the games this season 
- the Aggies headed into half- 
time with a lead. But, the key 
would be the play of the sec- 
ond half onithis frigid Novem- 
ber aftembon. 

In third quarter play the Pio- 
neers strack quickly by scor- 
ing a touchdown with 12:47 
still remaining in the quarter. 
The touchdown was scored by 
Doug MacLaughlin who ran 
for 35 yds. Vic Ameye ran for 
the 2 point conversion. Wid- 
ener was now ahead 22-16. 

Most of the third and fourth 
quarters were spent with both 
teams changing possession on 
the DVC side of the field. As 
Ray Savage stated, "We were 
insicte our own 10 yd. line the 
whole second half - it is really 
hard to come back especially 
with the pass rush. 

The third quarter was high- 
lighted by two Brian Kain in- 
terceptions (Kain had 3 total

The Men's Basketball team 
opened their season by partici- 
pating in the Okidata Qassic at 
ber 20 and 21. The Aggies 
defeated Rutgers-Camden by a 
score of 64-62 in overtime. 
DVCs Ryan Buckley scored 
with only two seconds remain- 
ing in overtime to give the 
Aggies their first win of tte 
season and the privilege of play- 
ing in the championship game. 
Buckley also led the scoring 
for the Aggies with 20 pts. 

The next evening, Del Val 
faced Widener University in 
the championship match, only 
to be defeated 67-5 1 . Widener 
led 29-23 at halftime and the 
Aggies fell behind early in the 
second half TTiey narrowed 
the gap to 1 1 with 5 minutes 
remaining, but were unable to 
overtake the Pioneers. Top 
scorers in the champion^p 
game were Eric Fisher with 

14pts. and Tom Riley with 1 1 
pts. Ryan Buckley and Eric 
Fisher were named to the All- 
Tournament Team for their 

On November 24, the Ag- 
gies had their first home game 
and it ended in defeat to Eliza- 
bethtown College 97-74. The 
Blue Jays of Elizabethtown 
opened up the game quickly 
with a 16-2 lead. The Aggies 
closed the gap to 38-27 before 
the end of the first half, but 
never pulled any closer. At 
halftime the score stood at 46- 
30. Ryan Buckley led Del 
Val's scoring with a career high 

30 pts. 
The men's basketball team is 

looking to improve on last 
year's record of 6-19 overall 
and 0-10 in the MAC. 

The Women's Basketball 
team began their season by 
participating in tlte Philadel- 
p^a Textile Toumament on 

November 20 and 21. The 
season opener for the lady 
Aggies ended in defeat to 
Philadelphia Textile by a 
score of 66-39. DawnPap- 
ciak led the Aggie scorers 
with 16 pts. On the next day 
Del Val played in the conso- 
lation game against Cabrini 
C!ollege. The game was a 
close match-up, butendedin 
defeat 57-56. Cabrini led 
33-23 at halftime, but the 
Aggies opened up the game 
by scoring 1 Ipts. in a row to 
close the gap to 35-34. With 
2: 13 left to play the Aggies 
went ahead 55-54, but 
couldn't maintain that lead. 
Marci Schadler and Kath- 
leen Monaghan led the scor- 
ing with 15pts. each. The

Darren Bethke has been a key 
part of the defense of the Dela- 
ware Valley G)llege football 
team for tl^ past 3 yrs. 

In reflecting upon the last 
game of the season, which was 
against Widener, Darrrai stated, 
"We really wanted to win it for 
Coach Manlove." This is a sen- 
timent that is shared by all of the 
players (Hi the team. 

It would have been nice for 
the, "seniors to go out with a 
win," but Mfhen putting it all in 
perspective Darren says, "I 
wanted to go out winning in- 
stead of a loss like that - we lost, 
but we still had fim anyway." 

In reaction to the new coaches 
Darren shows great respect

In the fourth quarter the Ag-

Tte feeling of the game was

This season was full of im- 
provements and the team 
should prove to move in a 
positive direction in the fu- 
ture. As Coach Manlove said, 
"We're pleased with iht atti- 
tucte of our people and the 

directi(m we are going." Next 
season will be full of even more 
improvements and should 
prove to be very exciting for all 
ofthe Aggie fans. It is fitting to 
conclude this season with the 
words of Coach Manlove, "A

DVC: Not 
eJust for 

By Caryn Derr-Daugherty 

Campus New9 Editor 

DVC is known as a non-discriminatory college, right? Well, then YOU tell the 200 pound bear 
who showed up for night classes on November 10th that she can't enroll!! 

That's right! ! Two weeks ago a 200f lb. bear found its way onto the DVC campus and found its 
way right into the hearts of some of the students here. According to Security, the black bear found 
its way onto thecampusbetween6:30and7:00pmon Tuesday night She wandered down through 
the pathway between the Student Center and the Gym and then in between Goldman and Samuel 
dorms. There she hid under some trees to rest for awhile, but was quickly disturbed and took off 
behind Berkowitz and over the railroad tncVis. 

The following day Fire Marshall Lies and DVC Security officer Marable took a walk behind Berk 
to see if they could find any evidence to support the bear sighting. Sure enough, imprinted in the 
soft mud were some bear tracks. "She appeared to be frightened," said Olficer Marable. 

On Thursday, November 12th, the bear was sighted in Ambler, just about 10 to 12 miles away 
from DVC. TIk bear was chased up into a tree where she was later tranquilized. She was then 
transported to Wycoming County in Western PA. 

The cub was believed to have come from the Blue Ridge Mountains which run north of Berks and 
Schuylkill counties. Ms. Bear has been captured in civilian territory once before though. While 
game wardens were removing her from the tree, they found a tag on her ear. 

On a sad note though, the cub later had to be put to sleep because the Game Commission feared 
that since it is bear season, if someone were to shoot the bear and eat its meat, they might get sick. 

Faith Directory 


A Faith Directory is a source book of information about 
local churches, synagogues, temples, meeting houses, etc.... 
It will include the location, phone numbers, and worships of 
any denomination wishing to be included. It will also include 
names and phone numbers of people to contact about trans- 
portation to the services. 

Anyone can be in it, and it is strictly on a volunteer basis. 
If you would like to be listed as a volunteer driver, please put 
your name, means of contact (Phone number and/or box 
number), your place of worship, name of denomination (if 
applicable), and the number 1, 2, or 3 on a card which will 
anourK:e your availability and send it to Box 6429. These 
numbers will identify you as to whether you would like to be 
the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd choice to be called if someone is in need 
of a ride. Please also indicate if you would like this informa- 
tion to be available only upon request. 

I strongly encourage those who live near the College or on 
campus to volunteer. Commitmoits in some cases are mini- 
mal, as with tfie Newman Qub and the Christian Fellowship, 
who provide rides to a Cattolic and Baptist church respec- 
tively. For instance, group rides are only needed on occasion. 

The college, to date, does not have a coherent and organized 
means of providing this information to students. Hiis direc- 
tory is designed to make it easier for students, many of whom 
do not have cars, to attoid services if they so desire. 

The Faith Directory is sponsored by the Newman Club. If 
you would like to be included in it, have questions or 
comments, caU Samantha Qchocki at 230-9138, or leave a 
message in Box 6429. 

Please help us make thi!; a success!!!

By Terry MeAnaUy 



The word akne is enough to 
cause people to stop and think. 
The topic of dale or acquaintance 
rapecaabemcre thsD somepeople 
are willing or able to taOc about 
However, ttiis was the puipose of 
the seminar held on Date Rape. 
Julie Biehn of NO VA (Netwofk 
of Victim Assistance) came to 
campus to talk about what rape is, 
who is most likely to gM raped, 
and what you, as a victim, can do. 
Ms. Biehn began die seminar 
witti a descriptkm of who was 
most likely to be raped. If you are 
a female between the ages of IS- 
24, you are in the high risk cat- 
egory. Your chances of being 
raped increase if you are itta party 

am pus New 

Aquaintance Rape 

with people you do not know, 
and if everyone at the party is 
drinking, lliis usually occurs 
when female fireshmen go to on- 
campus parties. 

Amajor problem witfi rapeis 
thia many peofrfe do not under- 
stand wlut rape is. Riqxisde- 
against another's will. 

But how do you deflne the dif- 
ference between forced and un- 
forced sexual intercourse? 
Forced sexuidiirieicourse is when 
the girl says "no" and the guy 
continues in his advances. At 
this point, the physical contact 
becomes rape. 

Date rape or acquaintance 
ntpt is (Ml the rise in America. It 

usually occurs between the fkst 
and third dates when both die 
male and female have been drink- 
ing and they are alone. 

Some of die warning signs of a 
potentialrapistare: someone who 
does not listen to what you are 
saying, ignores your personal 
space, is playing touchy-fedy in 
aU die wrong places, is veitally 
demeaning to women, is very 
possessive, and makes all die de- 
cisions in a relationship. While 
one or two of tfiese signs akme 
may not mean die person is a 
rqiist, it wouM not hurt to stay 

Ms. Biehn suggested diat if 
you are going out with a guy for 
die first tin^, take some (A die 

foUowii^s precautions: l)TeUyour 
friends where you are going, and 
about what dme you expect to be 
back. 2) Stay in weU lit areas. 3) 
Stay taioraroundagroup of people 
if possible. 4) If things start lo gel 
out of hand, DO NOT be afraid to 
make a scene. 5) Say "NO" like 
you mean it 

Oiief Sempowski had some rec- 
ommendations for die guys. 1) 
DoD*t use force. It will only get 
you in trouble. 2) Ask her what she 
wants. Jmt because she is wearing 
that low cut dress does not mean 
she intends to k>se it later dutt 
night 3) Talk about intercourse in 
the beginning. 4) And most of all, 
really LISTEN to what she is say- 

If you have beat raped, or 
diink you have been raped, go 
some place safe. Don't washor 
take a shower. If you do, you 
could wash off evkknce die po- 

CaU dUier die poUce or cam- 
pus security. There is always a 
female officer 00 duty at campus 

If you, or someone you know, 
has been raped, talk about it widi 
someone. NOVA has cotmcilors 
on cidl 24 hours a day, and all 
conversations we confidoitial, 
and you do not have to give your 
name ifdo not wish. But{4ease, 
(k) talk to someone.

Pub Metamorphoses 

By Mame Sugarman 
Staff Writer 
Contributions by Tom Alberta 

And Becomes Ceasar's Food Court 

The spring semester was wel- 
comed by a newly renovated 
Caesar's Pub in an effort to mod- 
ernize, and meet the growing de- 
mands of the Delaware Valley 
College (DVC) population. 
Students wanted a more relaxed 
atmosphere than the dining hall 
could provide. A place where 
they could snack, socialize and 
purchase high quality fast food. 

The renovation to the Pub has 
made all this possible as well as 
allowing extended hours and en- 
hancing the leisurely atmosphere. 
In addition, these improvements 
have given the students the meal

Mike Ward, a Food Committee 
member agrees by stating, "The 
Pub is a social place for people to 
hang out." 

These student demands were first 
explOTed by the student Food Com- 
mittee in September of 1991, with 
the approval of I^ul Schatschnei- 
der, DVC's Business Manager. The 
Food Committee meets every two 
to three weeks to air suggestions. 
Their goals are to enhance the types 
and qualities of food, have more 
meal-plan flexibiUty, and make 
better use of the Pub fapilities. 

A Request For Prbposal (RFP) 
was released by the Food Commit- 
tee in April of 1992. Various food 
services submitted prc^sals in an 
effort to win DVC's food service 
contract, which al^ included plans 
for a renovation to the snackbar. 
The proposal had to consider food 
standards, services, a design for 
the Pub, and the financial invest-

The history of the black man

of all mankind. The continuing 
study of the past by anthropolo-

evidence of being the land of the

Egypt at least three thousand 
years before Qirist. Around 
2500 B.C. , masses of black mm 
were serving in Egyptian armies. 

The Nubians, black people, 
gained positions of power and 
honor in the land of the Pha- 
raohs around 2000 B.C. 

The African presence in 
Egypt is still quite noticeable 
in ttie statuary that stares un- 
blinkingly across the centu- 
ries. The Sphinx and many 
other sculpted monuments 
have ttie broad nose and full 
lips of the Africans. Not only 
did many Africans supply 
much of the manual labor for 
the building of the pyramids 
and the statues in tlK country, 
they were some of the archi-

The blacks of Africa did 
more than help construct

Annual PA State Farm Show 

A Success 

By Tracey Thrapp 

Every year the Agricultural stu- 
dents take various animals to the 
Annual Pennsylvania State Farm 
Show in HsuTisburg. Only the best 
animals are shown and DVC's per- 
formed well in the stiff competi- 
tion. DVC took six Holstein cows, 
one Brown Swiss cov^ and one 
Ayshire cow. The Holsteins re- 
ceived two first place ribbons, three 
second place, and one fourth place. 
The Ayshire won first place, Best 
Uddered cow, and Reserve Grand 
Champion in her class. 

Woriung with the animals at the 
Farm Show were Eugene Wetzel, 

Scott Angstadt, Jennifer Or- 
iowsky , amd Mkhelle Kerdeman. 
These four students clipped, 
cleaned and stayed up all night to 
them shine, a very tiring job. 

Also at the Farm Show were 
Tanya Martin and David Mc- 
Crorck, D VCs student ambassa- 
dors. On Sunday, January 10, 
they presented Governor Rob^ 
P. Casey with a commodities 
basket representing the DVC 
Agriculture and Animal Science 

In addition, Denise Kehm, 
Nicki Roberts, Michelle Kerde- 

man, Sharon Harnish, Tracy 
Thrapp, Tom Farley, William 
Keeny, Beth Stack, Mary Ann 
Henry, Audrey Diehl, James 
Bane, and Garvin Schaffer all 
woriced in the barnyard exhibit 
located in the new section of the 
Farm Show complex with Penn 
State. Sharon Hamish and Tracy 
Thrapp presented Governor Ca- 
sey with brochures and pamphlets 
from D VCs display when he was 
touring the new section.

student input" He also added that 
he is willing to listen to any sug- 
gestions students and faculty have 
to make.

The budget for this project was 
$500,000, and came direcdy from 
the Wood Company. Included in 
the budget were two new comput-

Glitches still have to be ironed. 
For instance, Ron Wood is in the 
process oi ordering trays for the 
Pub. This may take a while be- 
cause the Pub does not have a 
special U^y wash system like in 
the dining hail "It's a sanitation 
issue," Wood said. Disposable 

trays will be used temporarily. 

Ron Trombino also stated that 
overall the system is, "working 
well, although some pec^le have 
a tou^ time adjusting to change." 

"This is a good change, not a 
bad change," he adds, as he asks 
peopk to have patience for things 

The extoided hours are draw-

Mr. MuUins, the coordinator of 
the student center, said that he 
actually sees more people eating 
Ineakfast in there now. Ron 
Trombino noted that when he 
wait in the Pub one night at 
9:00p.m., he saw a room full of 
students, which used to just be 
occupied by the chess club. 
Mike Ward said, "Itfeels quaint 
and relaxing, and die Pub itself 
has more life in it than it had 
before." Ht also mentioned that 
many people are ha|^y with the 
non smoking rules in the Pub. 
Ray Delaney , Pete's Arena su- 
pervisor said, "The Pub is more 
efficient and nicely decwated. 
If the place a person is getting 
food looks good, that person 
might feel better about eating at 
that p\!£t" 

Paul Shulte. a student at DVC 
said, "Kudos to the decorator! I 
think the colw scheme [fuschia 
and aqua] are fabulous. With the 

addition of the atrium, the Pub 
iK)w possesses all the qualities of 
a decent eating establishment." 

AltiKHigh most (pinions about 
the Pub reno vatiMi were positive, 
some people did not agree. Stu-

school should have put more con-

need or want (i.e. adequ^weight 
training facilities)." 

At tiie ribbon cutting ceremony 
for die new Caesar's Pub Febru-

"DVC now truly has tiie best food

After ten yews (tf underutilized

Intoxication; Tlie norm on campus 

By Tina Demenczuk 


Has college become one big 
4jn-goinff"driiikingparty?" Da 
students go to school to gain: 
the freedom to drink? When 
do they have time to study, or 
better yet, whendoes theirbody 
recoup enough to allow tlraxi 
to concentrate? 

At small schools, located in 
rural settings, students oftoi 
turn to drinking for entertain- 
ment According to a study 
recently report by the New 
York Tmies, students at smaller 
private colleges drink much 
more than stu^nts at larger 
colleges and universities. The 
biggest pari of uiKkrgraduate 
aiKl graduate campus social 
scolds is drinking. Alcohol 
still remains the most widely 
used dnig among college stu- 

dents; it is still the number one 
causeofdiscipiinary and emo- 
tional problems on campus. 

Severn tour-year oblieges 
with le^ than 2,500 students 
under 24 years old were sur- 
veyed in the study. The stu- 
dents averaged about seven 
drinks per week as compared 
with students at larger colleges 
averaging 20,000 studoits who 
consumed 4.59 drinks a week. 
The study also proved that 
students with Dean's List 
grades consumed much less 
alcohol, about three times less, 
per wedc thamstudents with 
low gnutes. Studoits with 
grades lower than C*s drank 
about U drinks a week and 
those making A gr^Kles aver- 
aged 3.4 drinks.

Lights Out In The 
Parking Liot 

By ChrU Alhin 

Staff Writer 

Never mind lights out, they 
are not even going to be turned 
on. Have you wondered why 
the lights are not installed on 
the corKrete cylinders through- 
out the parking lot? 

It is because the Q>Ilege has 
not yetreceived the lights. Paul 
Schatschneider, DVC's Busi- 
ness Manager, says that the 
lights are on order. There is 
only one slight problem once 
they are installed. There will 
be no power. Schatschneider 
claims that a $10,000 trans- 
former is needed to operate the 
lights, and says that he is "not 
sure if the funds are there to 

purchase it" 

There is no real guarantee 
that these lights will ever be 
put in, but orK thing is for sure, 
they will not be installed by 
this summer as was previously 

These lights were originally 
going to enhance the over all 
look of the parking area, tnit 
primarily they were going to 
provide better lighting to ad- 
dress the student safety con- 
cern which was raised by sev- 
eral students last semester. 
Now, the money that was origi- 
nally available is not, which 
seems to suggest there is a price 
tag on student safety after all! 

DVC Drinking: 

A Free For All 

Dear Editor, 

I am disgusted with the 
amwiU of drinking that oc-' 
curs here at DVC. Much of 
the drinking is done by mi- 
nors. It ai^)ears this country's 
national pastime is switching 
from baseball to drinking. Ihe 
average beer runs costs be- 
tween $9 and $15. If this 
money wasn't sprat on beer it 
coukl be saved and used for 
education or something more 
useful. I'm sure the parents, 
vfho pay most of th^e beer 
drinkers tuition, wouldn't ap- 
preciate tiieir money being 
spent this way. 

I have often woiKlered what 
the rewards of drinking are. 
From what I see, tlK only ttiing 
a person gets in return frpm 
, drinking is a hangover. IwUl 
admit Ihaveneverhadahang- 
over because I doiCx drink. 
But I have seen and talked to 
people who have had hang- 
overs, and it does not sound 
like fun. I mean, what fun can 
come out of throwing up, and 
waking up, sometime after 
noon, wishing you hadn't? 

Please understand, I am not 
seeking to condemn any of tlK 
people who drink peaceftilly. 
I just disapprove of those 
drinkers who get otmoxious 
and min the night for others. 
I'm specifically talking about 
those who blast their stereo at 
2:30 in the morning as well as 
those who run through the hall- 
ways at all hours of the night 

vMie others are trying to sleep 
or study. Like I said, I »n not 
condemning an vbodv, ju^ask- 
ii^ those who are bothersome 
(you know who you are) to be 
considerate to those who are 
trying to enjoy or make use of 
the quiet time. 

Some of the Resident A^is- 
tants (RA's) don't exacUy rem- 
edy the situation by drinking 
with tile bothersome people. It 
is college policy that people 
who are drinking are net al- 
lowed to walk inthe halls with 
beer, but they do anyway. 
Sometimes, die RA's tell the 
people to get out of the hall, 
but this only lasts for a couple 
of minutes before they are back 
out again. Ifthe RA's did their 
jobs and wrote up the people 
- who dp iiot listen, the dariking 
in the hallways would be re- 
du<;ed ccHisickrably, as Vi^d 
die mess! 

Security is another suj^pc^ed 
"problem solving" area. The 
security guards do not exactiy 
emanate an air of authority. In 
fact a lot of the students listoi 
to die security guards less than 
they do the RA's. It is my 
0](>inion that if %curity , or even 
better, the New Britain. and 
Doylestown Police (who do 
have jurisdiction over this col- 
lege) would oiforce the laws, 
the iiKidents of illegal dsirk- 
ing would be reduced. 

Again, let me reiterate, I am 
not condemning those people 
who drink in peace, just those 
who can't or won't

Rules and regulations gov- 
erning parking on any campus 
are often a debated and contro- 
versial issue. There is no ques- 
tion they arc necessary and must porting sttidents who parte in 
be enforced, but they should be faculty spaces. These smdents 

all officers fo ticket anybody 
pariced illegally." 

According to Lorctta Landes, 

head of security, they receive \ 

calls from faculty members re- 

enforced equally for tlK stu- 
dents as well as the college's 
staff and faculty. 

According to several stu- 
dents, it seems that when fac- 
ulty and staff vehicles arc in 
violation they are not ticketed. 
The students claim they have 
observed some security offic- 
ers ignoring faculty violators, 
while ticketing students in the 
same vicinity. 

According to Delawarc Val- 
ley College's (DVC) policies, 
tickets arc to be written and 
given to anyone who violates 
the parking rcgulations. Lieu- 
tenant Marable, of DVC secu- 
rity, suf^rted this policy fully 
by stating, "I have instnicted

indicated this is the faculty's

played in plain view. A viola- 
tion of this law can result in a 

"A non handic<^>ped persons vehicle in a

According to Landes, faculty 
members arc also ticket^ and 
will have to pay the fines. As 
far as actual payment of these 
fines, she says it is up to ac- 
counting to collect them.

Staying One Step Ahead in 
the Sports World and Life 

Many people think that spoils 
are unimportant to the every- 
day world, but sports can teach 
us all valuable lessons about 
how to live our lives. 

Sports can help us to im- 
prove our life-styles, because 
of the exercise. We all could 
use a good run around the track 
or a little weight lifting now 
and then or just a nice long 
walk around the campus. 

People who are involved with 
sports have a better sense of 
what to eat and when to work 
out Most people would like to 
take better care of their bodies, 
but usually don't know where 
to start 

The example of the exem- 
plary athletes on this campus is 
one that we can all follow. To 
strive to succeed in whatever 
area you choose is a goal that 
we ^uld all have. 


In retrospect with the prDfes- 
sional sports worid, the Siqxr 
Bowl is a prime exam[rie. In 
the 4th quarter, as the Dallas 
Cowboys had a commanding 
lead over the Buffalo Bills, 
Dallas' Leon Lett recovered a 
fumble and was running for a 
touchdown. As he neared the 
endzone he began to slow down 
his run. Granted that a defen- 
sive tackle is not accustomed 
to running a 64 yd. sprint he 
did begin to "showboat", how- 
ever, resulting in Buffalo's Don 
Beebe catdiing up with Lett 
causing him to fumble. This 
resulted in the Bills retaining 
possession at the 20 yd. line for 
a touchback. Point being - as 
soon as you slow up and (ton't 
look behind - you can be caught 
by whoever is gaining behirKi 

This is advice that we, as 
college students, can ail take to 
hearty. We live in a competi- 
tive world and those of us who 
do the extra work or study for 
those few extra hours are the 
ones who will be able to im- 
press the employers and to earn 
the best jobs. 

So. follow the example of the 
excellent students here at DVC

Super Bowl XXVII was a

third time, scratching their 
heads wondering, "what hit 

The agonized look on quar- 
terback Jim Kelly's face after 
being knocked out of play by 
Dallas linebacker Ken Norton 
with 6:52 seconds left to play 
in the second quarter said it all. 

Jim Kelly and the Bills were 
hoping to make up for their 
back to back losses to the Gi- 
ants and Redskins respectively. 
Not only did the Bills lose a 
record third Super Bowl by 35 
points and allow two sets of 
touchdowns within seconds of 
each other, but they set a Super 
Bowl record, nii^ turnovers, 

C^arterback Jim Kelly said, 
"We turned over the ball over 
nine times, you can't beat a 
college team like that." 

The Cowboys on the other 
hand had a great night, a night 
that saw one of the greatest 
turn arounds in football his- 
tory. The year was 1990. the 

team was the Cowboys, the 
problem was that the Cowboys 
only won 1 game, while losing

Cowboys to the Super Bowl. 
Along with leading the Cow- 
boys to the Super Bowl, Jimmy 
Johnson became the first coach 
ever, to win both a NCAA 
championship and a Super 
Bowl tide. 

Coach Johnson, however, 
was not the only person to get 
a whiff of the sweet smell of 
success. Quarterback Troy 
Aikman won the M.V.P. hon- 
ors and it was easy to see why, 
Aikman completed 22 out of 
30 passes for 273 yards with 
no interceptions. 

For the Cowboys, Super 
Bowl XXVIl was a game that, 
especially Coach Johnson, and 
Troy Aikman will remember 
for the rest of their lives. 

For the Bills. Super Bowl 
XXVII was just more salt 
added to their wounds, and the 
off season will be a time to 
remedy those wounds. As the 
Mels sav. "mavbe next vear."

Lorl McCaulcy takas ovM •• hMd coach of tha track taam. 

By Charlotte Walker 

Sports Editor 

Lori McCauley was recently 
named as Delaware Valley 
College's Men's and Women's 
head track and field coach. She 
takes over the job of Charies 
Loughery, who retired after the 
1992 season. 

Lori McCauley graduated 
from Pennridge High School 
in 1979. Ste was a state cham- 
pion in the 440 yd. intermedi- 
ate hurdles in 1978 and 1979. 
In high school she ran in a 
variety of events. As she 
stated, "I ran where tlKyneected 
me," which included: the 100 
yd. dash, tlK 220 yd. dash and 
all of the relays. 

McCauley graduated from 
Rutgers University in 1983 
with a Bachelor of Aits (kgree 
in Uit>an and Enviroiunental 
Planning. While she was at- 
tending Rutgers, Lx)ri McCau- 
ley set a World Indoor Record 
in the 440 yard dash and a U.S. 
record in the 400-meter inter- 
mediate hurdles. 

At Rutgers, Lori began by 
running the open 400 meters, 
but after a year and a half she 
decided to run the 400-meter 
intermediate hurdles. She par- 
ticipated in the 1984 and 1988 
United States Olympic Trials. 
She was an alternate for the 
1984 U.S. Olympic Team to 
run the 400-meter intermedi- 
ate hurdles. 

hi 1983 McCauley received 
the Rutgers University Board 
of Governors Citation for her 
outstanding achievements in 

track and fleld. 

For the 1990 and 1991 track 
seasons, McCauley has been 
an assistant coach at Moravian 
College, where she helped the 
hurdle athletes. 

The team promises to im- 
prove under the direction of 
McCauley. Maria Zuario, a 
member of the track team 
said, "She has really motivated 
half of the team already, she 
has really motivated me." 

The whole athletic depart- 
ment has a positive outlook. 
As Assistant Atletic Director 
LindaFleischer stated, "We feel 
that she will be able to give 
energy to the program, is en- 
thusiastic to get started and, 
with her world-class experi- 
ence, brings a great deal of 
credibility to the DVC track- 

Members of the team stress 
the fact that coach McCauley 
can show the runners how to 
run better. As a freshman 
member of the team stated, 
"CWier coaches just tell you 
stuff, but she can show you the 
forni." "Thereisabigdiffer- 
eiKC in just telling you how to 
do ^mething and showing you 
how it is really done." 

Coach McCauley hopes to 
help tfie team members to im- 
prove both in the sport and in 
the classroom. She hopes to 
inspire them by her example. 
As she stated, "I did it so you 
can (k) it to • work hard aiKl 
rvi icvere." 

Wrestling Team 
Pins Another Win 

The Delaware Valley College 
Wrestling team is havii^ an- 
other great season as they are 
10-3. On February 6 the Aggie 
Wrestlers slammed the Grey- 
hounds of Moravian College 37- 
14. The match was highlighted 
by Mike Johnson (138 pounds, 
17-0) who remained undefemed. 
His pin was one of 3 of the 
match. The other two were by 
Kurt Peavey (118, 8-4) and 
Scott Coleman (190, 5-4). Kurt 
Handel (177, 15-3) and Tony 
DeLeon (HWT, 5-6) recorded 
wins by technical fall. Floyd 
Buffington(134) won by forfeit 
and David Bowman (150) won 
by default. In previous matches 
the DVC wrestling team re- 
corded wins against King's Col- 
lege 34-9 and Gettysburg Col- 
lege 56-0.

If you know or plan events 
for all students' benefit, check 
with Dr. Ziiemer about offering 
them as Cultural Enrichment. 
Call Ext. 2250 or stop in at 
Lasker Hall 17 (second floor). 
STUDENTS, ftilfill one 
cr^tof academic requirement 
and broaden your cultural per- 
spective by attending 14 dif- 
ferent kinds of events. Fresh- 
moi received a Cultural En- 
richment Recorder in your 
p«;ket of information in Au- 
gust; others are available fircxn 
Dr. Ziemer for ott^r students. 

The goal of this program is 
to broaden your education and 
should include events you 
would not routinely attend. If 
you are a heavy coiKXit-gocr, 
then attending a conceit would 
not be as enriching to you as 
taking in a museum, seeing a 
theatrical play, or a free semi- 
nar at an Audubon Society 

Thanks to the efforts of the 

Cultural Affairs Committee and 

the Office of Student Life, m any 

events have been planned for 

this spring. With February

a session will be devoted to the 
reading of poetry written by 
and read by students. Paitici- 
pate in this creative venture by 
preparing your own poetry; 
let's share some original rtiyme 
and metric handiwork for oil- 
tural enrichment. 

Check various bulletin 
boards near the Liberal Arts 
faculty location on Lancer's 2nd 
floor and near the Music Room 
on the 2nd floor of the Student 
Colter. TlK spirit and intent of 
this program encourages, and 
fosters, a broadening of your 
cultural perspective aiKl Apjprc- 
ciation of fixed and ongoing 
flexible handiwork of the w(Hld 
which you share with others. 

Some events will include the 
fine arts (music, art, and the- 
ater); others include tours aiKl 
visits to see and participate in 
handiwoil already madie (mu-

The Answer 

I've been wondering. 

But no answer came. 
I've been looking. 

Yet no light is shed. 
I've been searching. 

Yet still no destiny presents! 
No life, no love, no soul 

Bursts the psyche 
And makes itself apparent. 
No wisdom brings 

the time or truth to judgement 


Oily the iMw day 

Will open the way 
Engulf the soul. 
And make a marred lifel 
An old love and 
a disgruntled soul

Toad The Wet Sprocket 
Album Tear" 

By '^egoM Vic" 

**I will not take these things 
for granted" is the Key phrase 
from the latest release by Toad 
The WetSprocketcaUedFEAR. 
Now I don't know about you, 
but when I hear a name like 
Toad The Wet Sprocket I in- 
stantly think of a little suffering 
fix}g looking for attention. Well, 
this here is not the case. lUs 
foursome from Santa Monica, 
CA has just release their 3ni 
aiklmostintimate album to date. 
Their soulful melodies and 
thought-provoking lyrics are 
tlMir strong point While mak- 
ing a career out of constant tour- 
ing, they found enough time to 
put together probably (Hie of 

&K most commercially accept- 
able albums out of an alterna- 
tive band in years. The first 
single. 'All I Want' did very 
weU on the chaits and received 
plenty of radio air play. The 
%a>nd single, 'Walk On The 
Ocean, is still doing well on 
any Philadelphia-area radio sta- 
tions. These guys have been 
together since the mid 80' s, 
but have not really been puUi- 
cally noticed until now. Do 
yourself a favor and pick this 
ofKup. Trust me, you'll leam 
how not to take everything for 
granted these days. Toad the

Aggies Finish Second in National 

By Mr. Fred Wolfbrd 

On Saturday, October 10, 1992 
the Ncmheast Regional Soil Judg- 
ing Conlest was hosted by Cor- 
nell University. Delaware Valley 
College (DVQ participated in the 
event along with Cornell, Penn 
State, Maryland and Rhode Is- 
land. The Aggies placed a very 
unexpected second in the team 
standings and Mike Sowers of 
DVC pl2K:ed second overall as an 
individual, a truly outstanding 
achievement by Mike and the 

For those of you who haven't 
heard of soil judging, it is an 
annual event hosted by a north- 
easton school in the fall of the 
year. Ttie event is really a field 
trip to leam the soil genesis and 
morphology of the area. How- 
ev», to inspire some competi- 
tiveness, the "contest" is held af- 
ter two w three days of field 
evaluati(»isofthe local soils. Soil 
judging is an excellent opportu- 
nity fcM" an undergraduate to gain 
ation of soils. Many potential 
employers view soil judging as 
valujA>le experience. 

The Aggies participating in this 
year's contest were: Mike Sow- 
o^, £>avid Knoble, Jen Seidel, 
Randy Pia^l, Kevin Viersma, 
Elise Glazer and Colin Brand. 
The toun's first year coach was 
Joe Valentine. 

Tlie contest, which was held on 
Sahirday, was preceded by three 
days of practice pits. The DVC 
team travelled to Ithica, NY by 
van on Wednesday and stayed at 
a state park camp ground. For 
those who went, the lodging ac- 
commodations will be a mem(»y

to cherish. A six-bed, unheated 
cabin with a (lining room, refrig- 
erat(»r, and gas stove provided all 
the conveni^Kes of home. The 
memory of social dialogue 
huddle around the stove with an 
four burners glowing will be 
etched in the team's mind. The 
success of the team can be traced 
to the diligent work performed at 
the local "library", where the team 
members discussed the finer 
points of soil genesis and mw- 
pholc^y into the early morning 

On lliursday and Friday, the 
team oijoyed the fall setting of

The real surprise of tlw day 
was the Aggies plac»nent in the 
team standings. Due to excellent 
wcMk by the team memb^s, ex-

WDVC once called WAPO, 
is Del Val's campus radio sta- 
tion and has been in existence 
since 1971. The staticHi head- 
quarters, locjtted on the second 
floor of the Student Center, is 
once again going through some 
reorganization and growing 

Marci Carrol, the station's 
current Manager, along with 
Assistant Manager Denise Jan- 
nuzzelli and their 17 member 
staff, have been wcHldng furi- 
ously to pick up the pieces and 
put tt^m in place. 

WDVC has had many prob- 
lems with equipment as well as 
staff in the past year, but things 
are looking better, according to 

The station is currently wait- 
ing for the arrival of a CD player, 
a dual cassette player, and new 
CD's. They also plan to wire all 
dorms presently not serviced 
so that they will be heard all 
over campus. 

The biggest obstacle that 
faces the staff this snnester is a 
new Federal Conununication 
Commission (FCC) registered 
640 AM radio station. WDVC 
has been broadcasting on the 
640 AM frequency off and on 
for a few years; however, they 
are not FCC registered. Marci 
stated that, "We will probably 
have to change our frequency 
in order to stay in operati(Mi!" 

Another big problem is fund- 
ing. The station's staff mem- 
bers plan to hold many fund- 
raisers this semester. They also 

plan to talk to alumni for dona- 
tions. "We need more up-to- 
date equipment," Marci com- 
mented. "If we can solve the 
frequency pn^lem and are able 
to buy new equipment, we can 
build our advertising depart- 

WDVC is currently looking 
for help. D.J.'s are especially 
needed. If you are interested in 
working with any phase of 
broadcasting, please contact 
Marci Carrol or stop by the 
staff meeting any Tuesday at 
4:30pm in the game room. 

WDVC is on the air Monday 
through Friday 11am to 7pm. 
Eventually they plan to broad- 
cast Saturday and Sunday as 
well and lengthen their hours to

Pet Therapy Works Miracles 



As far back as 1792 
England's York Retreat for the 
insane noticed that animals had 
a so(Mhing and healing affect 
on many pfUi^ts. In West 
Germany, for over 100 years, 
dogs, cats, birds and horses 
have b^n used by the Bethel 
facility as therapy. 

Over 100 students were in- 
troduced to the fascinating 
worid of pet therapy by Mr. 
Rod Beckstead, the Interna- 
tional Director of the Comfort 
Caring Canines program, and 
Ms. Joyce Briggs-Hinds, the 
nUladelphia head of the Com- 
fort Caring Canines program. 
They were joined by two of the 
program's therapy dogs: 
Danny, a Tibetian Spaniel and 
Penny, a Golden Retriever. 

This presentation was hosted 
by the Delaware Valley Col- 
lege Volunteer Coips on 25 
January 1993. 

Beckstead explained that pet 
therapy programs began in 
nursing homes with positive 
emotional results. Now, with 
over 200 members and over 
200 dogs in Harteysville the 
program visits children's hos- 
pitals as well as nursing homes. 

**The testing discovers 
if the dog has any hid' 
den aggressions or 

Bedcstead explained the re- 
quirements necessary for a ck)g 
to be included in the program. 
Above all, the dog must be 
well socialized and able to be 
armmd p^>p\t other than its 


owner. The dog must be over one year old 
because "a puppy might be too rambunc- 
tious for an elderiy or disabled person to 
keep up with." The dog must then go 
through obedience training in the home. 
Later, the dog is exposed to various situa- 
tions (large crowds, people in wheelchairs, 

people with walkers, and people making 
sudden movemoits) to test the animal's 


"The testing discovers if the (k)g has any 
hidden aggressions or fears" said Beck- 

When and iftht animal satisfactorily com- 
pletes the testing, it is registered with the 
Comfort Caring Canines as an official 
therapy dog. The registered dog receives the 
same rights as other service animals. For 
example, a therapy dog has the same right to 
public places and public transportation as a 
seeing eye, or hearing ear, dog. The dog is 
also insured for a million dollars, in case a 
mishap does occur.

nating fiekl, or just want to And out about it, contact

DVC's computer department is 
finally moving into the 1990's. 

During mid-term break D.V.C. 
made a $40,000 investment in its 
computer depaitmeal The okl 
computers, (in the low^ level of 
Feldman Building Room 001), 
have been replied with brand 
new machines. 

In technical terms, the school's 
standard IBMcompatible80286's 
have been replaced with 19 IBM 
compatible 80486's, with oik in 
reserve. Along with the proces- 
sors, came new monitors-"Multi- 
scanning Super VGA"screens. 
Each computer is equipped with a 
mouse, (a visual pointing device), 
and a new keyboard. 

Each unit has several applica- 
tion programs loaded for the stu- 

dents' various uses. The main 
programs are a wwd processor 
(WwdPerfect 5. 1), a spieadsheet 
program (Quattro Pro 4.0), a da- 
tabase (DBase HI-*-), and an (q)ar- 
ating system with the new Mi- 
crosoft Windows 3.1 grsq)hic en- 
vironment Other specialized [»o- 
grams have also been installed. 
The advantages of these up- 
grades are power, speed, and 
efficiency. The olcter 286's can 
not perform many of the higher 
level tasks required in the more 
advanced computer classes, fw 
example Computer AictedDesip. 
Even some of the more basic tasks 
ran at a sluggish pace. 
In contrast, the newer 486's run 
at three times the speed of the 
older computers, handle mcMe in- 
formation, and can perform more 

complex functions than their pre- 
decess(vs. There is also less eye 
strain involved when using the 
new computers, since their nMxii- 
tors display a clearer, more leg- 
ible picture with more ccriors. 

Currently,(mlyn)om 1 has been 
upgraded, but eventually room 5 
will undergo a similar upgrade. 

As for the older 286's, they are 
being distributed throughout the 
campus. Six will go to the peri- 
odk:al section of the libnffy (lower 
level), while others have b^n 
sent to various departments fot 
student and faculty use. The 
machines in the library will soon 
be available for stuctent use as 
work stations to type p^q^er's and 
to woric on projects. 

The new computers are a wel- 
come addition to the DVC cam- 

pus. "With the new computes friaced in room 1 we, [ttie students and 
faculty] , can run the programs tfutt we need", commented I^. Lazvus, 
Head of Computer Services.

Meet the Board of Trustees 


By Terry Mc Anally 

Stqff Writer 

Ever wonder who makes up 
the policies of the campus? 
Who makes decisions regaid- 
ing policy, college goals, and 
sets tuition? All of this and 
are made by the Delaware Val- 
ley College Board of Tmstees. 

In November of 1992, the 
Delaware Valley College 
Board of Triistees held elec- 
tions for all of the positions 
open (Ml the bojud. 

The position of Chainnan of 
the Boaid, First Vice Chair- 
mui, ^ond Vice Chairman, 
and General Council were all 
open for election. 

The ofRce of Chairman of 
the Board was filled by alum- 
nus Aithur Foley, Qass of '54. 
Mr. Foley is owner of Foley 
Landscaping and Nursery, a 
veiy successAil company in this 

Mark Hankin, Fresident of 
Bank and Tnist Company of 
Old York Road, was elected 
First Vice Chairman, and Ger- 

ard A. Marini (class of '52) 
Fresident of Diagnostic Dimen- 
sions, Inc. was elected Second 
Vice Chairman of the Board. 
The legal end of all the 
Boards functions are now be- 
ing handled by J. Franklin Hait- 
zel, Esq. Attomey-at-Law, 
whose office is located right 
here in Doylestown. 

The Board of Trustees is re- 
sponsible for setting the poli- 
cies of the coDege. They are 
also responsible for estabUsh- 
ing goals, missions, and re- 
viewing and appraising the 
perfomiance of the college. 
They also goierate financial 
su[^it for and promote inter- 
ests of the college. 

SonK of the policies the 
Board is responsible for in full 
or in part include Residence 
Hall policies, conduct viola- 
tions, campus drug policy, and 
paridng and traffic regulations. 

According to Fresident West, 
this new group, "a very fo- 
cused group", will be able to 

get many, if not all, of this 
year's goals accomplished. 
These goals include promot- 
ing the college through the 
Centennial Campaign. 

The Coitennial Campaign 
incliKles scholarships, i»ofes- 
sors chairs, and enhancing the 

Sookt of the improvements 
to the campus can already be 
seen, such as the new (nib, and 
the new ccxnputera in nxmi 1 
of Fektanan Bldg. These im- 
provements, and many more 
are (banned for this year and 
the next few years leading up 
to tlK Centennial. 

By having professors 
chaired, the depaitment that 
the iHOfessors woit in receive 
money from large corporations, 
which can be used to buy new 

All in all, Fresident West is 
vei> enthusiasdcaboutthisnew 
board and feels that they wiU 
be aUe to get a lot accom- 

Do you know who I am?

News Editor 

Welcome back DVC!! I 
lM)pe everyoiK had a great va- 
caticm ! It's been such a long 
time since we last had a mys- 
tery baby that you may have to 
dig out your old issue of tlie 
Ram Fages to identify the last 
baby, who was Mr. Ron John- 
son. That 01^ must have been 
pretty easy because we got a lot 
of correct answers. But only 
the first correct one counts and 
that guess belongs to Kevin 
Viersma, a commuter to DVC. 
Congratulations Kevin!! 

This issue, we are going to 
change the pace a little. This 
time we have chosen a DVC 
staff member as our mystery 
baby. This staff member was 
bom in Philactelphia, PA on 
December21, 1968 (that would 

make him/her 24). He/she 
grew up in Wamiinster, FA 
and attended the University of 
Scranton. The mystery staffer 
has only oiw younger brother, 
but adds that he is bigger. 

This staffer is, like most 
freshman here, relatively new 
to DVC. His/her favorite color 
is red, favorite food is Italian 
and Oiinese (it's a tie). Favor- 
ite day of the week is, of course, 
Friday, and favorite vacation 
spot is anywhere sunny. Free 
time for this "pericy" individual 
is limited, but he/she is learn- 
ing how to play golf. One last 
point of interest is that this 
talented individual can play the 

So rack your brains and send 
your guesses to the Ram Pages,

Starting this issue, we are 
starting anew feature called, of 
course, Carol's Comer. The 
[Hirpose of this column is to 
update you on events that Clarol 
Doyle, tte Director of Special

Traffic Safety 

artel Neiv 
Traffic Patterns 

We are working hard to make 
DVC roads and paridng lots 
safer and more attractive. Dur- 
ing this construction period, 
we need your cooperation. 
Here is how you can t^lp. 

Remember that pedestrians 
always have the right of way. 
When entering the center of 
campus from Route 202, please 
observe the new STOP signs 
at the pedestrian cross walk 
and at the Horticultural Build- 

When entering from the New 
Britain Road entrance, please 
observe the fifteen (15) miles 
per hour campus speed limit 
(We do not want to put speed 
bumps on this road or issue 
$30 speeding tickets). Follow 
tl» widened road past the Hor- 
ticultural Building. Tempo- 
rarily, the old road in front of 
the President's House will be 

used for paiidng by the resi- 
dents of that donnitory. Upon 
completion of a parking lot at 
the old nurseiy., the as[^alt 
will be removed from in front 
ofthc President's House. The 
road arouiKl Lake Archer will 
become a pedestrian p^h. 

Starting at 8 a.m. weekdays. 
Security officers will be at the 
staff paridng lots at Segal and 
Feldman lots to enforce paik- 
ing regulations. Note that the 
paridng spots at the long is- 
laml in the main lot are re- 
served for handicai^x^, visi-

■ '^ nk you for your coop- 
eration. We recognize that the 
majority of students are fol- 
lowing vehicle regulations. If 
you have any suggestions or 
comments, please address 
them through Student Gov- 



Second Hand Smoke 

It's an issue again, 
nationally and here at DVC 

By Mame Sugarman 

Staff Writer 

HowiitHiic! Just as the mem- 
bers of the Ram Pages staff 
were prq>ared to write an ar- 
ticle in favorof banning smok- 
ing in Cesar's Pub, Smdent 
Government members heard 
the cry, voted, and adopted a 
iKMismoking policy forthe Pub! 

After learning that students 
were having a hard time enjoy- 
ing their new Pub cuisine stu- 
dent government passed the 
law, to take affect immediately. 
Students finally became fed up 
with the dense cloud of smoke 
that danced in the air just be- 
fore it zeroed in on unsuspect- 
ing non-smoker's food. 

Even some of the smokers 
commented that they enjoy 
their food better in a nonsmok- 
ing environment and preferred 
to smoke outside. 

Second-hand smoke is not 
just armoying anymore, there 
is a more serious conce m about 
environmental tobacco fiimes 
to consider! 

Scientists have been strug- 
gling with the question of 
whether second-hand smoke is 
dangerous. In the past, scien- 
tists put forth no clear evidence 
supporting the claim. 

Recently, the Environmen- 
tal Protection Agency (EPA) 
reached a milestone when they 
produced conclusive evidence 
su[^rting the hypothesis that 
passive smoking was indeed 
causing detrimental health ef- 
fects in many segments of the 

A panel of outside scientists 
comprising the Indoor-Air 
Committee of the EPA's Sci- 
ence Advisory Board con- 
cluded that second hand smoke 
is a human carcinogen, possi- 
bly one of the most harmful in 
existence, next to asbestos. 

According to the Science 
Advisory Board, 2,500 to 3,300 
non-smokers die every year 
from lung cancer. Various au- 
topsies concluded that the same 
carcinogens found in smoker's 
lungs were also found in non- 
smoker's lungs. 
When the backgrounds of the 

nonsmoking victims were pro- 
cured, the majority had spouses 

or other close family members 
who smoked. I^ople who in- 
hale higher concentrations of 
smoke are at greater risk. 

Lung cuicer is not the only 
killer. Many researchers be- 
lieve that environmental to- 
bacco smoke also increases 
heart disease in Americans 
which ads an additional 35 ,000 
deaths per year. 

Environmental tobacco 
smoke is also linked to bron- 
chial problems, pneumonia, 
and an increased amount of 
childhood asthma. 

Additionally, people who do 
not actually live with smokers 
are also at risk. EPA research- 
ers estimate that nonsmokers 
in a smoke filled work envi- 
ronment experience a 20to 30% 

iiKrrease in risk of devtloping 

Designating nonsmoking ar- 
eas in restaurants or in the woik 
place will iK)t allcvijtte the prob- 
lem. Many conteiKl for em- 
ployers to separately ventilate 
the segregated areas for more 
efficient protecticm. 

In 1990, only 3 American 
towns baniKd smoking in res- 
taurants and woikplaces. As a 
result of increased awareness, 
26 municipalities took the ini- 
tiative and harmed smoking 
indoors. This nimnber contin- 
ues to increase. 

Obviously, tob£K:co compa- 
nies are less than haf^y about 
these flndings. They claim that 
the risk of cancer is relatively 
small for people who do not 
smoke and that more conclu- 
sive tests must be dcme. 

Anti-smoking groups are on 
the rise and the results are show- 
ing. Caesar's Pub is a perfect 
example. TTie Stu(knt Govern- 
ment members have closed the 
chajHer on smoking iiKk)ors 
here at DVC! 

Try Not to Inhale 

In a new draft report, the EPA 
spells out the dangers of secon- 
hand smoke. Every year, envi- 
roimiental tobacco smoke: 

I causes 3,000 lung-cancer 

■ contributes to 150,000 to 
300,000 respiratory infec- 
tions in babies (mainly bron- 
chitis and pneumonia), re- 
sulting in 7,500 to 15,000 hos- 

■ triggers 8,000 to 26,000 
new cases of asthma in previ- 
ously imaffected kids 

■ exacerbates symptoms in 
400,000 to 1 million asthmatic

Staff Writer 

When Frank Perdue was in 
college, he, like most other 
college students, did not know 
exactly what he wanted to do. 
All he knew was that he "never 
wanted to be on that chicken 
farm my dad started in 1920". 

But as time progressed, he 
worked with his father's busi- 
ness and evoitually decided 
that "the egg business wasn't 
as bad as I thought." 

And now, 53 years later, 
the once small piece of land 
with a chicken coop and 50 
Leghorn chickens (which to- 
gether cost $5) has turned into 
over a billion dollar empire 
with fanns scattered across a 
multitude of states. 

On Feb. 10, Mr. Perdue 
shared with DVC his road to 
succQss in a 20minute speech. 
He talked about his right deci- 

sions, wrong decisions, and of- 
fered valuable advice to the stu- 
dents in attendance. 

"My life has been a wonder- 
ful experience — lots of mis- 
takes; butmore things right than 
wrong," said Mr. Perdue. 

Mr. Pefdue talked about his 
ingredients for growtfi, which 
included "fantastic. God-fear- 
ing parents and a very bright 
fatherwhotau^tmedaily with- 
out krK>wing that he was teach- 
ing and I was learning without 
realizing it." 

l^rdue Farms inc. has grown 
into a 90% family-owned busi- 
ness and the fourth largest 
broiler-producing company in 
the U.S., producing over eight 
million chickens per week. It is 
also Americans largest pri- 
vatdy-owned integrated broiler 

Mr. Perdue is eager to credit

One Woman Play 
Captivates Del Val 

By Deborah Steinmetz 

Del Val Librarian 

In the one woman play, "So- 
journer", actress Cecily Patter- 
son brought Sojourner Truth to 
life in her presentation of the 
former slave, abolitionist and 
Woman's rights advocate. The 
communication between the 
audience and Ms. Patterson was 
so intense that it was not sur- 
prising when the evening ended 
with a standing ovation. 

Sojourner Truth tells the story 
of iKr life to an audieiKe of 
woman's rights advocates in a 
church setting (the audience). 
TlK story begins with her life as 
a child in slavery. She shows 
glimpses of the treatment, good 
and bad, that she received in the 
hands of each master and mis- 


Originally named Isabella, 
Sojourner was bom circa 1779 
in the stale of New Yoric. At 
the age of nine, she was sold 
on the auction block. Her 
mother was sold to someone 
else. Isabella's mother had 
taught her the power of prayer 
and the n^d for communica- 
tion with God. This belief 
helped Isabella survive a very 
difficult life. 

That irmer voice, based on 
her relationship with God, 
challenged her vo do things 
other women would have con- 
sidered impossible. Once she 
became free with tht help of 
the Wagoners, a Quaker fam- 

ily, Isabellachanged hername 
to Sojourner Truth. She be- 
lieved she needed a new name 
to go with the new life she was 
planning to live. 

During her long life, so- 
journer accomplished many 
things. She preached and 
worked with the poor in New 
York Qty. When the Civil 
War started, she went to Wash- 
ington and expressed her con- 
cem over the inequitable wage 
situation between bl^k and 
white soldiers. 

With so many slaves fleeing 
to the North, Sojourner pre- 
sented a solutimi to the unem- 
ployment problem for former

By Jen Hubbard 

Staff Writer 

To many, tire library may 
seem old and outdated but 
changes are happening. New 
computers are now installed and 
the future looks bright for even 
bigger steps such as a comput- 
erized card catalog. 

Until winter break there had 
only been two computers in the 
library for students to use, an 
Apple and a PC IBM. The 
outdated computers were dis- 
tributed around the campus in 
classrooms and faculty offices. 

There arc five new state-of- 
tlK-art computers in the library 
all for student use at this time. 
Tliese new machines all have

slaves. SlK suggested to Pru- 
dent Lincoln that some of the 
vacant land of the West be 
opened U) the new freedmen. 
Lincoln agre^ with her, but 
he was assassinated before 
die plan could be put inu> 
effect. The administrations 
which followed had an inter- 
est in Sojourner's plui. Dur- 
ing her trips to Washington, 
she visited three different 
presidents and spoke with 
Presidertt Lincoln three times. 
This woman was also a pio- 
iwer in the woman's move- 
ment. She spoke before 
crowds on a variety of 
women's concerns including 
equal rights and the right to 
vote. Before she dial. So- 
journer wanted to have the 
right to vote. When she died 
in 1883 in twr nineties she 
still had not achieved that 

Ms. Patterson's perfor- 
mance iMOught a complete un- 
derstanding of the character 
to her part The audience, at 
times, held its breath. Depend- 
mg on me event portrayed, 
members of the audience of- 
ten wore a look of lK>rn)r at 
the injustice that mariced the 
time period in which this 
Afro- American womanlived. 
They also laughed or smiled 
at the humor Sojourner saw 
in her situation. 

During the play, Cecily 
Patterson would take hats, 
apnms, andotherarticles from 
an old Uee and change the 
time period and the setting. 
Besides these physical items, 
the actress bdievesthat"space 
andmovement create the illu- 
sions of different times and 

Ms. Patterson is cunrendy 
in communication with the 
Clinton administration re- 
garding a presentation of the 
play at the White House. "So- 
joumer^' has i^ayed to a wide 
variety of audieiKes, but the 
actress finds school audiences 
among the most challenging 
since fiftmi school to school, 
the students' reactions vary 

Regarding die one person 
play versus a play with a full 
cast Cecily Patterson has a 
definite point-of-view. Onthe 
one haiul, a one woman play 
"makes you stretch to do die 
character. If you run into 
trouble, you are on your own. 
You have tu 2-t yoii out." 

Cecily Patterson 

Cecily was nominated for Best Actress at the 
Washington Theatre Festival for her portrayal 
as Eleanor Bulloch in The A Cappella Angels". 

Having toured with thi^ play 
for more than a year, the ac- 
tress says she sometimes 
misses the interaaions with 
other actors. When there is a 
break in the "Sojourner" tour, 
Ms. Patterson will return to 
ensemble productions. 

Besides her acting in "So- 
journer", Cecily Patterson has 
written and developed "To My 
People...Witti My Love", an 
educational one-woman play 
tracing the history of African- 

NominiUed for Best Actress 
at the Washington Theatre Fes- 
tival for her portrayal as 
ElearK)r Bullock in **The A 
C^^lla Angels". She has ap- 
peared in plays in the Wash- 
ington, D.C. area and in Phila- 
delphia. Her film and televi- 
sion work includes parts in 
producticHis producedby NBC- 
TV, Tri-Star, Disney, and oth- 
ers. She has also done televi- 
sion commercials in niiladel- 
phia and Washington, D.C. 

"Sojourner" was written by 
Katherine Mine Hartandorigi- 
nally produced by the Gennan- 
town Theater Guild. The one- 
woman play was once pan of a 
production that required a large 

When the play became too 
expensive to produce, the ma- 
jor characters were carved from 

the original play and given a 
life of their own. "Frederick 
Douglas" is another example 
of a one person play which was 
separated from a larger woric. 
The "Sojoumer" is one of 
several events that Mrs. Rob- 
erts, the Cultural Committee, 
and the Minority Leaders Coa- 
lition chose for the First An- 
nual Black History month at 
the College. As with many 
events held for the first time, 
this month-long series of fine 
programming could have been 
better suf^rted by students, 
faculty, and staff. 

Cindy Blackston, President 
of the Minority Leaders Coali- 
tion made an insightful com- 
ment in her introduction to 
"Knowledge is Fieedom"pam- 
phlet which listed the month's 

"The celebration of the Afri- 
can American Heritage is an 
excellent of^ttunity to learn 
more about the self and the 
surrounding worid. I urge you 
to take that challenge." Cindy 
has an excellent point It is 
important to see similarities as 
well as differmces. It is also 
important to see how we all fit

us- after all, as Sojoumer might 
have said, we're in this to-

Ginotion - Fraught 
Handled Well! 

To the Editor: 

Congratulations to Michelle 
Slaybaugh for a remarkably 
balanced treatment of a very 
emotion-fraught issue (even 
if herpiece was given a not-so- 
unbiased headline: "Can we 
allow a queer niUion?")- It 
seems to me that we all need to 
focus more on the total irra- 
tionality of the arguments that 
foster continued anti-gay dis- 
crim ination. Forexample, there 
is the often expressed fear 
that if gays are openly permit- 
ted in the military they will 
openly practice their sexuality 
to tlk detrimoit of their ser- 
vice to the nation. The logical 
extension of that line of rea- 
soning, it seems to me, is that 

we should also not permit 
avowed heterosexuals to serve 
in die military forthe very same 
reason ... that they might 
express their sexuality to the 
detriment of their ability to 
fulfill their duties. (Q)meto 
think of it this may be a new 
strategy for achieving world 

For the record, it was com- 
mon practice in earlier times 
to include young male concu- 
bines among the "camp fol- 
lowers" of any anny, as those 
young men could serve to meet 
the sexual "needs" of the 
military leadership and yet 
would not burden the anny 
with pregnancies. That prac- 

tice was accepted and followed 
by such "real men" in the 
military as Alexanderof Mace- 
donia, Julius Caesar, and 
many others. I don't believe 
anyone would argue that these 
people weren't good soldiers! 
Prejudice results from irra- 
tioonal emotional responses 
and often has cteep-seated cul- 
tural roots. It is a sign of the 
maturation and civility of a 
society that it is able to rise 
above its prejudices and free 
itself tt) make tht b^t possible 
use of all of its human re- 
scnirces. It will be interesting 
to see how well we fare!

driver. At the time, it was 
pariced in the Feldman Build- 
ing parking lot. A number of 
witnesses reported that tl^ hit 
and run driver was a young 
female. She appeared to be 
dressed in riding clothes and 
was driving a Cherokee or 
Bronco type of vehicle. 

Acci(tents cm hs^pen, es- 
pecially on days when there 
are ice patches in the lot. How- 
ever. I would suggest that the 

honest thing to do is to get 
together with me to find an 
equitable way to cover the 
costs of repairing my truck. 
I would ask that the driver 
of the other vehicle contaa 
me in my office, Mandel 107 
or call me at Ext. 2282. I 
have no desire to be unpleas- 
ant, but I would like to be 
reimbursed for the damage 
to my tmck.

Some displeased with Career Day 

**This is to inform you of my 
dissatisfaction with the lack of 
diversity at this year's career 
day." That was the opening 
sentence of a complaint letter 
ftorn a business student about 
Delaware Valley College's 
(DVC*s) career day. It also 
reflects the general attitude of 
the business department and 
many of the business and CISM 
students in reference to DVC's 
career day. 

It seems the main complaint 
was thatthere were not enough 
companies in atterKlance who 
were seeking business or CISM 
majors. AmHherpo[Hilarcom- 
I^aint was ttie different spe- 
cializations under the business 
administration major were not 
specified. The brunt of these 
complaints were pitted against 
the Office of Career Services' 
and its director Tanya Letour- 

Although general consensus 
shows a lack of attention is 
given to the business and QSM 

majors by DVC's administra- 
tion, the Office of Career Ser- 
vices should not be blamed. In 
total, 373 invitations were sent 
out to companies, many of 
which were for business and 
CISM majors (this list can be 
viewed in the Office of Career 
Services). In attoidance, only 
84 of these showed. Along 
with the invitations, which 
were sent to each company, a 
brochure that listed the break- 
down of each majors special- 
izations was included. 

When this subject is viewed 
objectively it a|^)ears tiie Of- 
fice of Career Services did ev- 
erything possible to bring a 
diversified assortment of com- 
panies to the DVC campus. 
Another aspect to look at is 
what the students could have 
dorK to make sure their needs 
were met. For instance, ques- 
tionnaires asking for sugges- 
tions of different companies 
were sent to every student last 
November. From the business 

students, a total of ZERO were 
received. This type of reply is 
a regular demonstration of the 
average DVCbusiness studoits 
interest inhis^rfuture. When 
it comes time to actually get a 
real job, these students are go- 
ing U) have a nide awakening 
to reality. To show this amount 
of apathy in tl^ business worid 
will lead to starvatiort 

As for the Business depart- 
ment laying blame on the Of- 
fice of Career Services, per- 
haps they should discuss tlKir 
concerns directly with them in 
an attemiH to find a solution. If 
they had discussed the "lack of 
businesses present" they would 
have realized there were valid 
reasons which would have been 
acceptable. As role models 
they should coitliDnt their peers 
to resolve any difference of 
opinions ratter than playing 
the rumor game. Instead of 
waiting until career day is over, 
peihiq)s next year the busir^ss 
department should assist in the 

selection of businesses. 

Maybe it is time for the stu- 
dents and business department 
to look toward ackninistnttion 
andtheBoardofTnistees. There 
is definitely a great deal of ten- 
sion building here whidi should 
be diffused as quiddy as pos- 
sible. Peihaps one topic to be 
addressed is whetfier DVC is giv- 
ing its business and CISM ma- 
jors due recogniti(m through its 
marketing aiKl recruiting efforts? 
Many seem to believe they do 
not because a number of the Board 
of Trostees are predominantly 
agriculturally related and have 
little interest in changing with 
the times. That is, to expand and 
emphasize the majors where the 
demand is. If there is any cre- 
dence to this, then not only are 
the studoits suffering but the 
future of the College may be in 
jeopardy. As responsible lead- 
ers of this instimtion, one might 
think ttiey would have resolved 
these problems long ago or at 
least have attonpted to reconcile

Tattooing is one of the old- 
est forms of creative expres- 
sion. It has been dated to at 
least 8,000 B.C. Tattoo art 
has b^n a part of most every 
culture, serving both decora- 
tive aiKl communicative pur- 
poses. Slaves and criminals 
were typically tattooed or 
branded to set them apart from 
the rest of society. 

Tattooing was often banned 
by Jews and Christians (From 
the Holiness Code -'Te shall 
not make any cutting in your 
flesh for the dead. Nor print 
any marks upon you...".) 


Make an Informed Decision 

In our woild tattooing is used 
to gain or show membership 
into a particular group or 
change social status, display 
patriotism or devotion to loved 
one's, to obtain magical pro- 
tection (cultists), or simply as 
self-beautification. It is be- 
coming increasingly more ac- 
ceptable. Tattoos are visible 
everywhere; from TV actors 
like Kiefer Sutherland and 
Johnny Depp to musicians 
ranging from Cher to Henry 

Save the old India ink and 
sewing needle, present day tat- 
tooing techniques arc quite 

advanced. Vegetable dyes are 
applied with a high speed 
needle; the first four layers of 
skin are puncturKl and the fifth 
receives the dye. Approxi- 
mately ten days of healing are 
required. The average cost per 
hour is one-hundred dollars. 
Simple designs can take be- 
tween twenty minutes and four 
hours depending on size and 

The aspect of pemianence is 
seldom considered by young 
adults in search of skin art. 
Many tattooists try to deter- 
mine if die customer has made 
a clear decision. A reputable 

tattoo artist will r^ver decorate 
anyone who is obviously drunk 
or high. One must make a 
conscious d^ision to accept a 
tattoo as part of his/her body. 
These designs are forever. 
However, there arc two costly 
methods of removal: plastic 
surgery and laser surgery. Plas- 
tic surgery results in tenible 
scarring; lasers are relatively 
painless. The pigment under 
the skin is exploded and then 
consumed by the body's im- 
mune system. 

I'm young, immortal, un- 
harmable; live for the day! 
Too often this attitude is 

adopted by yoimg adults regard- 
ing tattooing. The sad truth is 
that when one is more mature 
and entering the workforce, the 
follies of youth may not be ac- 

Fortunately, prejudices 
against body modifications of 
all sort (piercing, tattooing, 
branding, scarification, etc.) are 
slowly diminishing. Not only 
convicts, sailors, and sideshow 
freaks have tattoos any more. 
Doctors, lawyers, and teachers 
have been the typical tattoo cli- 
entele, recently. Someday, 
people may be fortunate enough 
not to be judged on such petty 


Del Val Trashed 

Just a simH •xan^ of llM Mtor thai can bt found •v»iywh«rt on campus! 

By Ben Press 

Staff Writer and Photographer 

The condition of the cam- 
pus here at Del Val is atro- 
cious. In light of the fact that 
this is a small private school, 
the quad areas should be neat 
and well maintained. Instead, 
there are beer cartons, bever- 
age containers, cigarette packs, 
candy wrappers, and numer- 
ous other types of garbage 
strewn about. According to 
Steve Wantz, a resictent se- 
nior, "The trash all over makes 
the campus look bad, we 
should be able to keep it clean, 
especially since we are a 
small school." 

What impression does the 
litter have on visitors and pro- 
spective students? Sue Curtis, 
a junior who commutes, feels 
"li'sapoorimprcssion, it gives 
people the idea that we have a 
negative attitude toward the 
campus." It would seem that 
the people who attend a sci- 
ence and agriculture college 
would be more aware of their 
surroundings and take pride in 
their school. Apparently that 
is not the case here at Del Val. 

Does a dirty campus have 
an effect on a prospective 
student's decision whether or 
not to attend Del Val? Jen 
Orloski. president of the Envi- 

ronmental Awareness Qub, be- 
lieves "It may not affect the 
student, but his or her parents 
may form a negative opinion 
of the school." Jen also feels 
that "Having more U'ash cans 
on campus" and "Asking 
people to help keep the campus 
clean" would help reduce 

We have a beautiful cam- 
pus here at Delaware Valley 
College. People come from aU 
over to attend classes, visit our 
facilities, and stage concerts, 
shows, and seminars. That in 
itself should be enough to in- 
still a senseof pride in all of us; 
students, faculty, and staff.

Perdue 's success to the quality 
of his staff, which includes sev- 
eral gradujUes horn Del Val. 

Keith Thompson, class 
of('81) is a complex manager 
in one of the South Carolina 
plants. "Mr. Thompson 
brought Statistical Process 
Control (SPQ to our Com- 
pany, empowered his people 
and the results are unbelieve- 
able," said Mr. Perdue. 

Other Del Val grads include 
Craig Dobson, class of ('84), a 
sales manager in the midwest 
C^s Jensen, class of ('85), 
who is a regional sales man- 
ager for the Baltimore/DC area 
and Dan Paulus, class of '89, 
associate sales rep. 

Mr. Perdue also adds that 
Perdue Farms Inc. hire 40-50 
summer interns every year "so 
we can have a chance to ob- 
serve each other and become 
better acquainted." Interns in- 
clude sophmores, juniors arul 
many new graduates. Interns 
cover fields such as broilers, 
breeder and turkey production, 
engineering, accounting, gen- 
eral agriculture, food process- 
ing, and much more. 

Mr. Perdue offers these 
words of advice to students 
who are looking for a job: 
"Look at the salary almost last. 
Your latitude in eamigs from 
different companies is less ^ 
this time in your life than it will 
ever be. Select a not-too-large 
company which is growing at 
an above-average pace, and 
more than likely, you'll be rec- 
ognized for outstanding dedi- 
cated performance. Also,orK:e 
there, try to attatch yourself to 
a "coming leader" who can help 

in your progress to the top." 

While Mr. Perdue' s visit here 
to DVC was short, he accom- 
plished a great deal. He spoke 
at a dinner for the Academy of 
Distinguished Professionals had 
breakfast with the staff, visited 
DVC farms, and then spoke to 

The purpose of Mr. Perdue 's 
visit was to familiarize him with 
DVC and show him what we are 
all about "Since PerxlueFarais 
Inc. embodies everything that 
DVC represents, we asked him 
to visit DVC," says Henry Sum- 
ner, Director of Developmoit 
He also stated that DVC was 
exceptionally lucky to meet Mr. 
Perdue himself . Originally his 
son, Mr. James Perdue, was 
scheduled to visit DVC, but due 
to unfortunate circumstances, he 
was not able to attend. 

Many students as well as fac- 
ulty and staff were very glad 
to get to meet "The (3iicken 
Man". But one comment was 
made by all, "I can't believe 
how tall he is. I really thought 
he would be shorter. That's 
how he looks in the commer- 
cials," (Mr. Perdue stands 6' 1" 

I was lucky enough to be able 
to talk to Mr. Perdue for a few 
minutes after his speech. I asked 
him a few questions, but my 
favorite answer was to the ques- 
tion, "Which came first the 
chicken or the egg?" To which 
he replied, "God created all ani- 
mals, right?"

AGGIES Bounce Into MAC Playoffs 

By Charlotte Walker 

Sports Editor 

On February 20 the Lady 
Aggies defeated the Lady Mon- 
archs of King's College 63-59. 
The final minutes of the game 
decided who would tip off 
against the Crusaders of Sus- 
quehanna University in the first 
round of the Middle Atlantic 
Conference (MAC) playoffs. 

As Coach Gary Pento stated 
after the game, "The kids had 
made a decision that this was 
their game and they realized 
they weren't going to be de- 

This is the fifth time in the 
past six years that the Dela- 
ware Valley Aggies have 
earned their way into the MAC 

The game began at 2:00 in 
the James Work Gymnasium 
and King's opened up quickly 
as they scored the first basket, 
but DVC answered back with 
Andrea Shumack's first 2pts. 
of the day. 

At half-time the score was 
33-33 and the tale of victory or 
defeat was still in store in the 
second half of play. 

The girls played strong and 
as Coach Pento said, "We 
played a good defense." 

The Lady Aggies began to 
pull away from the Lady Mon- 
archs in the second half. At 
14:07 they were up 46-38 and 
at 9:26 they were up 5 1-43. 

As the end was nearing the 
girls of King's College could 
see their hopes of victory slip- 
ping away and they were not 
willing to give up so easily. 
The Lady Monarchs buckled 
down in their game and came 
back to tie the game at 57-57. 

With only 1 :06 left to play 
the Aggies regained the lead 
with the scoreof 59-57. Atthis 
stage of the game the play is 
rough and emotions run ram- 
pant. When there was only 22

Wrestling Team Defends MAC Title 

By Matt Levy 

Sports Information Director 

The Delaware Valley College 
wrestling team will travel to Biza- 
bethtown College, site of the 1993 
Middle Atlantic Conference 
(MAC) Wrestling- Champion- 
ships, in hopes of winning its 
third consecutive championship. 
Starting time is 10 a.m. on Friday, 
February 26. The finals will take 
place at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, 
February 27. 

The Aggies finished their regu- 
lar season last weekend, splitting 
a double dual at S usquehanna Uni- 
versity. They defe^Ued Western 
Maryland, 42-6, but lost to the 
host school, 21-20. The split 
brought Delaware Valley'srecord 
to 134. It is the program's 23rd 
consecutive non-losing season. 
Head coach Robert Marshall, in 
his 19th year, has never had a 
losing season. 

Although he didn't see this as 
a rebuilding year, Marshall be- 
lieves it turned out that way. Nev- 
ertheless, he sees his squad bat- 
tling it out for the title with two 
other schools: Lycoming and 

"As a whole, as weak as we are 
right now, we're as strong as the 
contenders (Lycoming and Mu- 
hlenberg)," Marshall said. "If we 
can get everybody at the weight 
class where they should be, we 

would have to be considered one 
of the three favorites. 

"TTiis conference champion- 
ship, in my 19 years here, is 
probably the most wide open I've 
seen. There's not a definite team 
that you can point at and say that 
they're going to win." 

Two Delaware Valley wres- 
tlers will look to defend their 
MAC titles: Mike Johnson and 
Donetri Kangas. Johnson, the 
two-lime defending MAC cham- 
pion at 158 pounds, is a pofect 
20-0 on the season and the odds- 
on favorite to win the title again. 
The juniOT also recorded eight 

Kangas will look to become a 
four-time MAC champion at 134 
pounds. He would be the third 
Aggie (Shaun Smith '87andMaik 
Ambrose '91) to accomplish ihal 
feat. The senior is currently 14-5. 
Marshall sees senior Kurt 
Peavey, junior Kurt Handel and 
sophomore Mike Reichard as 
having a good shot at winning 
titles at their respective weight 

Peavey is 10-4 on the season, 
but undefeated in eight contests 
at 118 pounds. Handel placed 
fourth last year at the MAC'S and 
has compiled an 18-3 record this 
year at 177 pounds. Reichard, 

AndrMi Shumack gobig for th* thol for th« AggiM 

wrestling at 142 pounds, finished 
third at the MAC'S last year and is 
currently 15-4. 

Also scheduled to wrestle for 
Delaware Valley is David Bow- 
man, Vince Calantoni and Scott 
Coleman. Bowmw, a freshman, is 
8- 14 on the season at 150 pounds. 
Calantoni, in his first year, is 5-9 
while wrestling at 126 pounds. 
Coleman, a junior who placed third 
at the MAC'S last year, ended the 
regular season 7-5. 

Two weight classes, 167 and 
heavyweight, are still undecided. 
Wrestling at 167 pounds will ei- 
ther be Jim Craft orTonyRizzo- 
lino. Craft, a junior, is currently 
11-11 while Rizzolino, also a jun- 
ior, is 2- 1 . Rizzolino placed fourth 
at the MAC'S last year. 

Freshmen heavyweights Matt 
Metz and Josh Rjocliffe will battle 
during practice for the right to go 
to the MAC'S. Metz is 9-2 on the 
season and Ratcliffe is 6-5. 

Last year, the Aggies repeated 
as MAC champions, finishing 65 
points ahead of second place Mora- 
vian College. Marshall does not 
see this year's championship be- 
ing decided by that large of a mar- 

"I see the champion winning by 
one or two points," Marshall said. 
"Every point will really make a

Sports, School Spirit, and 

The sports here at DVC are all 
in a transitional stage. The win- 
ter sports are coming to a dose 
and the spring sports are set to 
begin so(mi. All the teams are 
striving to achieve higher goals 

- to improve on last year's per- 
fonnances. The athletes here at 
DVC all deserve a lot of credit 
for trying their best and being 
dedicated to their sports. 

On tlK subject of school spirit, 
or the lack thereof, there has 
been little consistency in the 
attendance of the sporting evoits 
here at Dei Val. Sometimes the 
bleaclwrs are hill of people who 
are stomping their feet and 
screaming to encourage our 

A perfect example of ttiis oc- 
curred during the women's bas- 
ketball game on January 19. 
This game saw the Lady Aggies 
defeat the Lady Monarchs of 
King's 0)Uege, but not until 
double overtime was completed 
It seemed like every time the 
victory was sealed-up for DVC 
the lead would be lost again. 
But in the end, the home team 
was victorious. Who is to say 
that the crowd didn't posh the 
DVC girls to stay on their game 
and to distract the opposing 
team. On the other hand there 
have been games where the at- 
tendance or inters^ on the part 
of the DVC students has been 
severely lacking. 

Tt^se athletes are students too 
and deserve to be respected by 
the student body. So let's try to 
forget about the past - how 
things used to be - and try to 
build a future where the stu- 
dents take a more active part in 
the events that take place here at 
DVC. Some night when there is 
a sporting event, come to the 
gym to see the athletes of DVC 
in action, showing school spirit 
by supporting our sports teams. 

Another way to support DVC 
is by helping the RAM PAGES 
to report the events of the cam- 
pus - sports and otherwise.

Upson shot two foul shots, 
which sealed the victory for 
the Aggies with the final score 
of 63-59. 

As senior player, Dawn Pap-

our best." "It all came down 
to who wanted it the most." 

Natasha Upson led the scor-

The Lady Aggies met the Lady 
Monarchs twice during the regu- 
lar season. Their first meeting 
took place on January 19th, re- 
sulting in a Del Val victory 73-67 
with double ovenime. Natasha 
Upson scored 20pts. that day. 

Their second meeting of the 
season took place on February 8. 
The Aggies were not so foitunttte 
in this game, which took place at 
Kmg's College. 

The WomMi's Basketball team 
of Del Val has had a great season. 
They ended the regular season at 
1 2- lOoverall and 6-4 in the MAC- 
NE. Their victory over King's 
College in the one-game playoff 
to decide who would go to the 
MAC playoffs improved their 
record to 1 3- 1 overall and 7-4 in 
the MAC. 

This year's record is an im- 
provement of last year's 11-14 
record overall and 4-6 in the 
MAC-NE. This exemplifies the 
statement of Coach Pento, "It's 
easier to work when you win than 
when you lose."

On Saturday February 13 
at Lehigh University's indoor 
track , several Del Val stu- 
doits qualified for the Middle 
Atlantic Conference cham- 
pionships, which will be held 
Febmary 27 at Dickinson 
College in Cadisle, PA. 

The meet started at 12:30 
with the field events. Throw- 
ing the men's 35 pound 
weight was sophomore Jim 
Bardunias. "That's only the 
second time 1 touched it. The 
first time was when 1 broke it 
at practice," Bardunias com- 
mented afterwards. Bardun- 
ias also competed in the 
men's shot put event. Put- 
ting for the women were 
freshman Jessica Keifer and 
sophomore Diane Yoder. 
Both have continued to im- 
prove their personal records

NESA Scholars Invade Del Val 

A ctaM of Hotetclns Is Mgcriy being Ju<^|«d by NESA eonvMiHoiiMrs. 

By Karen Callahan 

Staff Writer 

NESA is much like a live- 
stock game show, only it*s 
mortfiin. It consists of a live- 
stock judging contest, a quiz 
bowl, a pi^jer presentation, and 
an Outstanding Senior Award. 

This year's event was kicked 
off with a dance Friday night at 
the Best Western Motel. This 
allowed the competing teams 
to socialize and evaluate eadi 
other before the big day. 

I5ngm and eany 2>atumay 
morning the livestock judging 
contest began in the Eques- 
trian Center. The contest con- 
sists of four member teams 

from each club. This year, the 
six classes to be judged were: 
four-year-old Holsteincows for 
Dairy, mixed-sex Quarter- 
horses for Horse, Hampshire 
bred ewes for Sheep, Angus 
Yearling Heifers for Beef, Yoric- 
shire Market Barrows for pigs 
for the Surprise class. 

After the contest was over, 
DVC's Equestrian team was 
given the opportunity to exhibit 
their talent and horsemanship 
skills in two special activities, a 
vaulting demonstration and a 
demonstration by the Drill i'eam 
on horseback. 

Upon conclusion of the Eques- 
trian team's breath taking ma- 
neuvers, a picnic lunch was pro- 

vided in the dining hall for aU 

After lunch, the games con- 
tinued with the quiz bowl and 
paper presentati(His. The quiz 
bowl was also made upof four 
member teams. The contes- 
tants competed in a series of 
one-on-one elimination 
matches with a total of twenty 
questions asked in each round. 
The paper presentation was 
an eight minute presentation 
of a subject relevant to agri- 

WithtlM contests concluded, 
everyone left to prepare for 
the twffet dinner and awards 
program which was held in 
the dining hall. The Outstand- 

ing Senior Award is given in 
an effoit to recognize outstand- 
ing student members of NESA. 
Ei£h college is allows one 

There were fourteen judging 
teams, thirteen quiz bowl 
teams, and six p2q)er presenta- 
tions. The DVC teams did 
very well with participants 
from the Dairy Society and the 
Block and Bridle Gub. The 
results are as follows: 

Individual Judging- 

9th place- James Bane from 
the DVC Dairy Society

able to relax arul congratulate 
each otner on pt)s well done at 
adancetooMiclude almsyday. 
Farm tours were given on 
Sunday morning for the visit- 
ing colleges aiKl universities. 


The first NESA was held in 
1978 here at DVC. It began as 
an organizational competition 
with mostly livestock judging 
and some paper presentations. 
Each year the competition 
grows with invitations sent to 
colleges imd universities in the 
northeast region, ranging from 
Maine to Maryland. An aver- 
age of eight schools partici- 
pate each year. 

Delaware Valley College 
hosted this year's, NESA dur- 
ing the weekend of February 
12. Over 150 students and 
advisors firom seven colleges 
and universities participated 
in this year's event. 

In 1994, NESA will be held 
at Penn State University and 
in 1995 it will be held at Cor- 
nell University. 

A big thanks goes out to all

A Blast from the Past 

By Dave Burlingtune 

Staff Writer 

Almost everyone has the 
desire to travel back in time. 
Now we can glimpse into the 
past history of the college as 
the Ram Pages takes you bade 
with excerpts from past is- 

In the vault of the Kraus- 
kopf Memorial Library are 
copies of issues printed from 
the first decade of this century 
until present The first issue 
was printed under the name. 
The Gleaner, and was in cir- 
culation from 1912until 1956. 
Vnt college was named Tt^ 
National Farm School then, 
and those issues portray a male 
agricultural school. From 
1 956 and into 1 970. the cam- 
pus paper was known as H^ 
Furrow . This period included 
major changes at the college 
with the addition of two new 
majors. Science aiKl Business. 
To reflect these changes, the 
college alsodianged its name 
to Delaware Valley College 

of Science and Agriculture. 

From 1971 through 77' the 
paper renamed itself again to 
become known as The Ram . 
During the years of 1977-80' 
the paper was titled DVC Col- 
legian. Finally, at the end of 
1 980 brought the current name 
known by one and all. Ram 
Pages was bom. 
Here is what was happemng 
in May, 1912 under the agri- 
culture sectiono fTheGleaner 


"The manure pit is in opera- 
tion. Peas and oats are already 
sown. Tom and Dick are pull- 
ing the gang plow in the or- 
chard. One more new horse 
was purchased last week. Po- 
tatoes and sweet com were 
planted a few days ago. Too 
much praise cannot be given 
to the boys for their excellent 
work done on the bridge lead- 
ing from the woods to No. 3 

farm. The engine is in the 
pasture and tlK sawing of logs 
is to commence next week. 
The young camation plants are 
already set out on the field. 
The freshmen are learning ag- 
riculture wonderfully fast. 
About 30 acres are to be limed 
this spring. The lime is on the 
field waiting to be spread.

the post office, a Freshman

Do you know what critters share your campus with you? 

By Karen Callhan 

Staff Writer 

Mooo, Oink, Baaa, Mooo. 
What does this mean? Not to 
worry, it's just the animals from 
the bams inviting you to stop 
by and visit. Whether you are 
a Business, Ag, Science, En- 
glish or any major, you are 
welcome to visit the bams and 
their residents. Bring your 
friends or family and come find 
out what's happening "down 
on the DVC Farais". 


At the DVC Dairy, students 
are milking sixty cows twice a 
day. The average cow eats 
sixty-five to seventy pounds of 
feed to produce eighty poumls 
of milk each day. The average 
cow will produce 27,000 
pounds of milk and 1,000 
pounds of butterfat a year. 
Presently, there are two cows 
overdue to calve and five more 
expecting before the end of the 
month. Next month there are 
eight cows due to calve. The 
Dairy'sgoal is to produce eight 
to ten calves a month. Con- 
sider this an invitation to you 
!o stop by and sec the new 
additions to the dairy when you 
get the chance. 


We now have five Yorkshire 
sows with piglets at the sv^ne 
bam. These piglets are around 
two-and a-half weeks old. 
When they get to be five wedu 
of age. they will be weaned aiK) 
put in the nursery. After this 
six week period, the pigs will 
be moved into the finishing 
room and will stay tlKre until 
they go to maricet at 230-250 
pounds or 20-24 weeks of age. 
We have 21-24 sows in the 
herd and turnover a quarter of 
the herd each year. The largest 

litter has been twenty-one pig- 
lets per one sow. The average 
live litter is 1 1 .4 piglets per 
sow and the average weaning 
litter is 9.8 piglets per sow. A 
sow will average two litters a 
year which means they will 
have eight to nine litters during 
their lifetime before being 
culled. We raise six to eight 
sows and one to two boars as 
replacements for the herd. 
Swine are susceptible to dis- 
ease so visitors are ask^ to see 
Mr. Gross before entering the 


In our last issue we incor- 
rectly stated there was 160 
lambs down on Farm #3. We 
are proud to announce that we

as of February 16. We arc 
expecting twenty-four ewes to 
lamb soon. You are welcome 
to visit the lambs between 9am-

Also on Fann #3, we are 
exporting 46 beef cows said 
heifers to calve this year. Our 
first calfis due February 25. In 
January, three yeariing heifers 
(two Polled Herefords and one 
Black Angus) were shown at 
the Pmnsylvania Fann Show. 
One of the Herefords placed

First, it was the pub, now an 
alternative/progressive band 
perfomiing in the APR; what 
is this (farm) school coming 
to?!? As a pleasant relief firom 
SAC'S usual, mundane activ- 
ity caleiKlar. the band. On 
Edge, entertained Delaware 
Valley College students on 
February 10, 

On Edge played (wo sets 
for the music-frenzi^ Aggies. 
Cover tunes were the main 
focus of tlK show. Theb^t, 
by far, was a beautiful adapta- 
tionof The Ocean Blue 's "Be- 
tween Something uid Noth- 
ing." Other audience favor- 
ites included Pearl Jam's 
"Even Flow," with perfect 
vocals by Chris Paiker, and 
"Suck My Kiss" from the Red 
Hot Chili Peppers, with mis- 
matched, Eddie Vedder-esque 
vocals by band member Guis 

The band's strong points 
seem to be their flexibility 
and diversity. Nolen switched 
between tl» voices of Rol)ert 
Smith and Garth Brooks U) his 
own soulful croon with ease. 

His strong, unique voice em- 
powered their originals, which 
irKidentally were very good 
(especially the new "Point of 
View.") It is a shame such a 
talented band must resort pri- 
marily to covers to get booked. 
The band which has been 
together for about two and one 
half )«ars, hails from Virginia. 
They are currently touring east 
coast colleges. On Edge fea- 
tures : Nolen - lead vocals and 
guitar, Todd Sager - guitar, 
Chuck Harrell- bass and vo- 

cals, Lee Brooks - drums, and 
Quis Paiker - keyboards \ vo- 
cals \ percussion \ hannonica \ 
etc. Their first CD "Radish," 
was released just previous to 
their arrival at DVC.

The morning of Valentine's 
Day, February 14th phones 
rang off the lKX)k at security 
as another water slwrtage 
took place at Delaware Val- 
ley College. It appears that 
the problem was caused by a 
water main break in front of 
Wolfson HaU. The R.A. of 
that building, Angel Wen-

saying "the front of Wolfson

actions upon notification of

pala commented, "It's our 
duty to serve and protect and 
we do our best to try to re- 
solve the simation. When 
we woric against nature and 
disasters, it is difficult to tiy 
to make that resolution." 
With that, security called 

maintenance. Dean Jarrett 
and the C.C.'s of all the

Frank Burke responded to 
the call received at 9am and 
came in with acrew consist- 
ing of Rob Lieau (Mainte- 
nance Foreman), Barry

Tim Varcallo (Head of 
Grounds Department). 
"It was one of those things

Delaware Valley College 

their Bachelor's Degree at Dela- dream of the late Dr. John Purdy, 

Delaware Valley College Presi- 
dent, George F. West, recently 
announced plans to establish a 
foreign exchange program with 
the College of Agriculture in Ja- 

The President of the Jamaican 
College of Agriculture, Dr. Ter- 
rcncc Thomas, met with six DVC 
faculty and administrators in De- 
cemb^ to discuss the preliminary 
steps in setting up the exchange 

Thomas said, "We are commit- 
ted to developing an international 
linkage. Jamaica has experienced 
a shortage of trained per«)nnel, 
particularly in the area of agricul- 
tural research. DVC can help 
specifically in the training of tech- 
nical people." 

The College of Agriculture is 
located in Pod Antonio. Jamaica, 
and is the only agricultural col- 
lege in the country. Currently, 
the College offers an Associate 
Degree Program. Through the 
exchange, students fit)m the Col- 
lege would be able to complete 

ware Valley College. 

According to Thomas, access 
to Delaware Valley College's 
upper level courses would be in- 
valuable to his students. "Our 
students need more hands-on ex- 
perience and exposure to new 
technologies," Thomas said. 

Delaware Valley College 
would also benefit from the ex- 
change program. Dr. Craig Hill, 
Dean of Delaware Valley Col- 
lege, said, "Our students would 
be able to go to Jamaica for spe- 
cialized courses and research 
projects relating to their majors." 

Some of these research projects 
would support Jamaican agricul- 
ture. According to Thomas, the 
biggest growth areas in Jamaica 
are in the jwocessing of native 
fruits for international msukets. 
He hopes Delaware Valley 
College's expertise will help his 
College in assisting local farmers 
and to identify business of^rtu- 

The exchange program was the 

Director of the P0UIU7 Diagnos- 
tKs Laboratory and Assistant Pro- 
fessor of Animal Science at Dela- 
ware Valley College. Purdy 
woriced as a veterinarian in Ja- 
maica through the Peace Corps 
for two years. 

Dr. Gwdon Eaton, who has 
since headed the project said. "Dr. 
Purdy never forgot Jamaica. It 
was his experiences in the Peace 
Corps that prompted him to want 
to establish a relationship with 

In keeping with his commit- 
ment and strong ties to both Dela- 
ware Val ley College and Jamaica, 
Purdy's family recently estab- 
lished the Jack Purdy Memorial 
Fund. The purpose of the fund is 
to assist Delaware Valley Col- 
lege students who train for or 
participate in third world mini- 
peace corps missions, especially 
in Jamaica. 

Both schools are optimistic that 
the program will be effective by

median who has made appear- 
ances on MTVs Half HourCom- 
edy Hour, Carolines Comedy 
Hour, and A&Fs An Evening at 
the bnprov graced the Pub stage 
Wednesday February 17th. 

Playing to a group of approxi- 
mately thirty people, Kevin kept 
us laughing for almost an hour. 
His humor is a blend of child- 
hood e}q)eriences and observa- 
tions on everyday life. He was 
definitely worth seeing. 

I spoke with Kevin after the 
show, and asked him the follow- 
ing questions: 

What made you decide to 
become a comedian? 

"I could always make 
people laugh, anA nothing else 
worked out" 

How did you get started 
as a comedian? 

"I joined an improvisation 
group and went from there." 
What was it like being on 
MTV, etc.? 

"It was scary at first, being 
on MTV and in front of all 
those peqple, but you kinda 
get used to it after awhile." 
Do you have any advice 
for aspiring comics? 

"Hang in there, work on 
stage as much as you can. 
Don't be afraid to bomb, just 
get through it" 

Kevin is heading towards 
Los Angeles to work scHne 
clubs there. He wUl be ap- 
pearing on a new MTV com- 
edy show called "Kamikaze's," 
premiering in March.

pated. The Great Pretender was 
only a European release, and 
could only be acquired through 
importers. When Freddie died, 
people all arourid tl^ worid be- 
gan snatching up Queen parafa- 
nalia. In 1992, when HoUy- 
wood Records saw this resur- 
gance of interest in Queen, they 
released The Great Pretender all 
around the worid. 

The Great Pretender begins 
rather slowly with Freddie's 
version of The Platter's hit and 
title song The Great Pretender. 
But, the pace picks up and never 
drops back down with Foolin 
Around, a Queen-ish sounding 

song. Freddie voice does jus- 
tice with his version of Dave 
Clark's Time, making it 
sound better than The Dave 
Qaric Five did. Freddie also 
proves his vocal mastery and 
musical diversity with an 
opera-ish song Exercises in 
Free Love. The rest of the 
album helps prove why, as 
all people realized, that when 
Freddie died the music worid 
lost one of the greatest vocal- 
ists ever, and why Queen is 
died with him. Nobody can 
duplicate or replace the vocal 
mastery of Freddie Mercury.

Dear Dr. DeMarco: I start- 
ed exercising in an effort to 
improve my health. However, 
two days iMer I really paid the 
price with every muscle in my 
body sore and setting. Now 
what? Do I ever get back to 
using my new (and expensive) 

Answer: Sure you will, with 
a very importantlesson learned. 
If you went out there at fuU 
blast with those otfiers who 
have been woiicing out, walk- 
ing or jogging regulady for 
many weeks and months, you 
made the same mistake that 
many new exercisers do. You 
started too much, too soon and 
too fast. 

This degree of overwork on 
your unaccustomed muscles 
caused spasms, inflammation 

You and Your Health 

and possibly even tears in the 
muscle and conn»:tive tissue 
that encloses the muscles. It 
takes a day or two for you to 
realize that you have just over- 
worked your muscles and 
another72 hours foryournatu- 
ral processes to repairthe dam- 
age. Then you are ready to 
start again. 

This time you can get off to 
a proper and more sane start. 
Begin with some limbering up 
warm-upexercises, even if you 
are only plaruiing a short work- 
out period. Then go at it at a 
reduced pace for about a half 
hour or so. 

Muscles that are gradually 
introduced to regular exercise 
do better and are less sore after- 
ward. Plan different exercises 
for different days, so you use 

different musctes groups. Even 
if you are just fast walking or 
jogging around a closed track* 
changing your directi(Hi mid- 
way through your session can 
help. End your woilcout with 
cooling-down exercises that 
keep your muscles limber and 

Exercises are useful in at- 
taining many different goals; 
weight loss, muscle strength, 
flexibility loid improved heart 
and lung function. Discussing 
these objectives with a profes- 
sional counselor can be money 
well spent to get you started 
properly on what I still con- 
sider the best medicine for the 
price - regular exercise. 

Dear Dr. DeMarco: The dis- 
cussion in our town has be- 
come quite heated over the 

question of cancer and elec- 
tricity. Does living near power 
lines cause cmcetl 

Answer If a simple answer 
were available, there would be 
no discussions to arbitrate. 
There just aren't enough clear- 
cut scientific studies that per- 
mit an absolute answer at this 

The question that is receiv- 
ing the most attention is 
whether children who live near 
high-tension power lines are 
more a{H to develop leukemia. 
While statistical eviderKe in- 
dicates that this is so, the proof 
that it was the electric or mag- 
netic fields that caused the can- 
cer is still lacking. It may take 
as much as two to three years to 
gather enough data to answer 
this question with any author- 


Until that time, prudence 
seems to be the answer. A 
decision about buying a home 
or choosing a job ^uld take 
the possibility of a link be- 
tween ctficer and electrical 
power lines into consideration.

Keeping Fit 

Heart disease is the leading 
cause of death in women, as 
well as men. 

But until recently, women 
were largely excluded from 
heart research and they're still 
treated differently medically. 

Some doctors don't take 
women seriously when they 
complain about symptoms, for 
example, said Dr. Marianne 
Legato, co-author of "The Fe- 
male Heart." 

'The biggest obstacle women 
have is denial," says Bonnie 
Arkus, a nurse wlu) founded 
the Women's Heart Research 
FouTKlationthis summer in cen- 
tral New Jersey. 

Here's some fast facts from 
the foundation: 

* Women who have heart 
attacks are twice as likely as 
men to die within the first few 

* Women stand a greater 
risk than men of dying within a 
year of their first heart att^k. 

* Women are less likely to 
get state-of-the-art treatment. 

* Women are three times as 
likely to die during heart sur- 

* Women smokers who use 
oral contraceptives are up to 39 
times more likely to have a 

heart attack than women who 
don't smoke or use birth con- 
trol pills, recent studies have 

* Qose to a third of all 
American women have cho- 
lesterol levels that put them at 

risk of developing heart dis- 

* From ages 35 to 74 the 
death rate of heart attack among 
black women is one and one- 
half times that of white women 
arKl three times women of other 

"' The risk of heart attack in 
women with diabetes is more 
than double that of non-dia- 
betic women. 

* Nationally, all heart and 
blood vessel diseases combir^ 
claim nearly 500,000women's 
lives each year, compared with 
fewerthan 227.000deaths from 
all forms of cancer. 

* Approximately 245,000 
of the more than 5 1 2,000 heart 
attack deaths that occur na- 
tionally each year happen to 

* One in nine women age 
45 to 64 has some form of 
cardiovascular disease and the 
ratio climbs to one in three at 
age 65.

...Did you ever know the Library has a lower level? 

A new addition to the 
Library's periodicals collec- 
tion, housed on the lower level, 
is EARTHWATCH, donated 
by Biology student. Heather 
O'Connor of Doylestown. If 
you ask Heatt^r about this 
magazine, she will tell you that 
it is a terrific resource listing 
expeditions from all over the 
world in many disciplines from 
archeology to wildlife manage- 
ment. In addition to these list- 
ings there are sizable aiticles 
on problems the earth faces, 
environmentally, politically 

and culturally. New issues of 
EARTHWATCH will be ar- 
riving every other month. 

In addition to EARTH- 
WATCH, some other new pe- 
riodicals to look for are ART 
REVIEW. For Ornamental 
Horticulture majors, we have a 
new index, GARDEN LIT- 
ERATURE, which covers 

some of the more "hands-on" 
journals such as GREEN 

If you havCTi't been to tlK

haven't seen dK most recent

on most of the machines. So 
you have yet another place to

Skiing Seniors 

By Stacy Deibler 

TMS Writer 

While downhill skiing was 
once thought of as the exclu- 
sive sport of the young and 
daring, today many older ski- 
ers are refusing to give up the 
thrill of whirling down steep 
inclines. "Many are returning 
to the sport after a hiatus, or 
trying it for the first time," 
notes Modem Maturity maga- 

"Ski areas across the coun- 
try have taken notice and many 
offer lift ticket discounts to se- 
nior customers; some invite 
over-70 skiers to ski free. Se- 
niors have formed their own 
clubs, as much for the cash 
discounts as for the camarade-

is now Park City's ski area 
director of senior programs and 
a ski instmctor. "Anyone in 
good health and able to walk at 
a fairiy brisk pace can learn to 
ski. If blind people can ski and 
people with one leg can ski, 
age is not much of an excuse." 
Wells created the "It's 
Never Too Late" ski class, and 
"graduates include a 62-year- 
old and recovering from a heart 
attack and an 80-year-old wid-

Library Moving Up 

(Continued from front) 

and have Paradox and Quattro 
Pro. These new computers all 
came from book sale money 
from previous years. "Faculty 
can put software on reserve 
just like they have put books 
and exams on reserve in the 
past," states Mrs. Shook. 

More computers in the li- 
brary make it much easier for 
students because there is not 
the hassle of hav ing to sign up 
to use one. 

New indexes like the bio- 
logical and agricultural in- 
dexes are being installed. The 
ERIC index is an education 
index for the growing amount 
of students in this major. 

There is also a new com- 
puter and a new terminal at the 
reference desk, according to 
Mrs. Shook. This computer 
can, via phone lines, dial up 
libraries such as Bucks County 
and the Penn State libraries. 
This helps connect us with 
literature from other libraries. 

The library has also been 
purchasing new books. It is 
hard for the library to get new 
books because the cost of pub- 
lishing the books has Esca- 
lated in the past few years. To 
get ready for the new books, 
the librarians will have to weed 
out the old books due to shelf 
overcrowding. The books that 
will be disposedof first will be 
the ones with the oldest copy- 
right and material. 

The library has received a 
state grant from the library of 
Pennsylvania to become mem- 
bers of the Internet program. 
This computer, which the li- 
brary staff is learning to use, 
will be able to dial up all kinds 
of information. Some of this 
information consists of weather 
reports, catalogs from libraries 
such as Stanford and Harvard, 
and databases. 

The five new computers 
were just one step in improv- 
ing the library, according to 
Mrs. Shook. The library also 
plans to acquire a computer- 
ized card catalog system. For 
the past ten years they have 
stored all the card catalog data 
on a collection of magnetic 
tapes. The library hopes to 
discard the wooden card cata- 
log and install computers for 
the students use. Extracting 
the information from the mag- 
netic tapes on to the computers 
will be the easiest way to in- 
stall the new system. 

When the college approves 
and provides funding for the 
new card catalog system, the 
staff at the library will have a 
good amount of work ahead of 
them. Striving to make the sys- 
tem user friendly will require a 
substantial amount of time and 
preparation concerning what is 
to be found in the catalog. 

To purchase the new com- 
puterized catalog will take 

thousands of dollars and tre- 
mendous work. It will take at 
least one to two years to be 
completed because bids are 
submuitted from each depart- 
ment to obtain funding. 

Mrs. Shook stated that "Al- 
though the library does not have 
as much money as they would 
like to have, the budget has 
been better this year. Last year 
the college had to tighten its 
money belt, 

and the library budget was cut 

The library has also under- 
gone less important changes 
such as making the wings 
brighter. Maintenance came 
in and took all the fluorescent 
lights out and washed all the 
panels. They then put in 
brighter lights which make 
studying easier. The libraries 
roof was also repaired after 
leaks were disc«Tvercd. Anew 
rubber-type n>of was installed, 
and the leaks were sealed. 
Maintenance still has to fix the 
old ceiling tiles. 

The library is very useftil for 
all the students and faculty, 
and it is becoming more and 
more useful, and attractive. 
President West and the librar- 
ians, especially Mrs. Shook, 
are all exerting great effort in 
making a better and more up- 
dated library.

What is your opinion of Bill Clinton's Presidency?

the tax package isn't

Christopher Patzke '96 

'Clinton is trying to sell

not be cre€Mted through 
Patriotism. His liberaly 
democratic attitudes are 
going to send us to hell 
in a hcmdbasket." 

Justin Geiger '93 

'Clinton is a typical 
democrat. His feeling 
that an increase in taxes 
will help stimulate the 
economy is not true. It is 
my opinion that the next

setback for both industry 
and professwnals alike." 

Beatrice Y. Morrobin '96 Jennifer A. Duran '95 

'T think that it is about time we had a democrat in

Nevertheless, you might be inter- 
ested to know that the f»:ility is a 
\ery scientific, state of the art, hu- 
mane eve center for small animals. 
TIk program offen a B.S. degree in 
Animal Science and Conservation 
ami emphasizes "hands on experi- 
ence" in ordo* to train professional 
scientists and researchers. 

The colter occupies the entire base- 
ment of the Alhnan building and is 
run by Dr. Eaton, Senior Professor 
and Dr. Bmbaker, Director of the 
Small Animal Science Program. 

The facility houses a vari^y of 
small animals year round including 
mice, rats, hamsters, guinea pigs, 
rabbits, dogs, cats, ferrets, and new 
world monkeys. Currently, the facil- 
ity has five environmentally con- 
trolled animal rooms that house six 
different types of mice, six Dutch 
Belted rabbits, five new world (Mar- 
moset) monkeys, and a variety of 

Student Teachers 

The student animal health lab tech- 
nicians learn how to haixlle and care 
for the animals while gaining valu- 
abte technical experience. They learn 
the latest lab techniques and proce- 
dures, and learn how to operate new 

Once the technicians have mas- 
tered the technique and or fmished 
theirresearch, they share theirknowl- 
edge and results with others. Jen 
Misko, one of the two Lab Supervi- 
sors, commented that, "The students 
and technicians leam from each oth- 
ers projects. Everyone becomes a 

There is a structured level of orga- 
nization that Dr. Brubaker monitors 
wl^i his technicians leam how to 

use the lab equi[Mnent. He estab- 
lishes general goals while students 
splinteroffandc(xicentrate on spe- 

Dr. Brubaker first learns how to 
use a piece of equipment. He then 
assigns two shident technicians to 
specialize in a particulv piece of 
equipment. Those two students 
then teach the others. Students 
woiic in an interactive environ- 
ment and depeiul on each other for 
ttte lab to run smoothly. 


There a is variety of research 
projects in progress this semester. 
Leann GrifFm and Rosanne Tinger, 

both seniors, are two of the 14 
Animal Health Lab Teclmicians. 
They are working on skin homo- 
gr^^, removing skin firom one 
mouse and transferring it to an- 
other mouse in tte same species. 
They are using haired mice and 
nude mice from the C57B1-6 strahi 
(a type of mouse). "They are iso- 
genic which means that they have 
the same gaiotype. This is impor- 
tant because if they were two dif- 
ferem^)ecies, the skin graqi^ would 
be rejected." stressed Leann. 

Leann and Rosanne have been 
successful in transf^ing skin with 
hair to the nude mice, Init tky 
have not mastered the reverse, as 
of yet Th& purpose of their re- 
search is to "fmd out what makes 
hair grow." They want to know if 

the growth is mediated intonal to 
the hair follicle or external to the 
hair follicle and if ttere is a sp^ific 
growth factor involved. 
Jen Misko is performing an immu- 
nogenicity study using a T- 14 tumor 
(squamous carcinoma cell), whicn 
occurred as a spontaneous growth in 
the HRAHII (another type of mouse) 
hairless species of mouse, one of the 
six types in the lab. She is trying to 
measure how long the mouse's im- 
mune syston takes to destroy the 
tumor ai^ determine the length of 
time before the mouse produces an 
immunogenic (causes an immune 
reaction) response. 

The experiment is conducted by 
inducing the growth of the tumor 
through injection of caiK:^ cells into

St. Patrick's Day 
"The Wearin' of the Green" 

By Tom Albert* 

Staff Writer 

The Feast of Saint Patrick is 
celebrated on Mardi 17 by 
Roman CattK)lics and some 
Christians and other doiomi- 
nations under Christianity. To 
understaiKl the purpose of the 
Feast, one must first know 
about Sl Patrick's life. 

St Patrick is called the 
Apostle of Ireland and is 
Ireland's patron saint Succat 
(later Patrick) was bom be- 
tween 385-389A.D. Succat is 
believed to have been bom in 
Bannavem Tabemiae, a village 
near the Sevem River, in an 
area of the country now called 
Wales. This region was part of 
the Roman Empire, aiKl as a 
result Succat is often referred 
to as a Romano-Briton(Roman 
and British). Succat's father 
was a Roman decurion, de- 
fined in WFBSTER'S as a 
member of a Romui senate. 

When he was sixteen(16), 
a band of pirates raided his 
village, took Succat and sev- 
eral hundred other young moi 
arxl women to be sold as slaves 
in Ireland. During his first 
five(5) years in slavery, Suc- 
cat worked as a herdsman/ 
slKpl^rd. Due to his loneli- 
ness, Succat felt an increasing 
awareness of God. During his 
sixth year of slavery, Succat 
had a dream telling him that he 
should esc£q)e. The dream gave 
him instructions, whichhe fol- 
lowed closely. He found his 
way to a harbor, boarded a 
ship and returned to his vil- 

Though Succat was glad to 
be home, Ik heard, "tite voice 
of the Iri^" calling him to 
return to Ireland. When Suc- 
cat fouTKl the "meaning" of his 
faith, he decided to return to 
Ireland to educate and convert 
thepagans. To find the "mean- 

ing", Succat traveled to France, 
and Italy, visiting the many 
monasteries, and living a reli- 
gious life. 

In 431 or 432 A.D. Succat 
return^ to Ireland, was made 
a bislK)p and given the name 
Patrick. Patrick's presence in 
Ireland was opposed by the 
droid priests, who hid a great 
deal of power and audiority in 
pagan Ireland. Although the 
druids captured aiKi threatened 
Patrick many times, Patrick 
was undaunted from traveling 
to all parts of Ireland convert- 
ing people to Qiristianity. 
Patrick is called the Father aiKl 
Founder of the Church in Ire- 
land. He retired to Saul in 
Dowr^)atrick where he died on 
March 17 around 461A.D. 
Patrick's final resting place is 
in County Down. 

The symbolism associated 
with St Patrick's Day is trace-

Tras/i Problem 
on Campus 

Dear Editor, 

In reference to Ben 
Press* piece in your last 
issue on the trash prob- 
lem on the campus, he is 
correct. It is almost as 
bad as driving on some of 
the roads here. The area 
along the Rail Road 
tracks is a disgrace. The 
grounds around Berkow- 
itz need to be cleaned up, 
and finally the pond needs 
to be cleaned out along 
the banks. 1 am tired of 
pulling dead waterfowl, 
and plastic from out of it. 
The ducks need a cleaner 
lake to swim in, devoid 
of trash. I'll be looking 
for an improvement soon. 
Let's get, with it.

Del-Val Vandalism: 
Problem or Way of Life? 

I find the recent waive of 
campus vaiKlalism alamiing, 
as should every residoit stu- 
dent. This semester, alone, 
eighteen individual incidents 
were reported. This is equal 
to the totals of offenses re- 
ported in the years of 1991 
and 1989. 

Accidents will ha^ipen, but 
the damages, occurring on a 
continual basis, are of deiit>- 
erate destruction. During the 
snow periods, many windows 
were brok^ as a result of 
snowballs. One wirulow, in 
particular, was broken, re- 
placed, and within or^ half of 
an hour was rebroken. Due 
mainly to practical jokes, at 
least five room doors were 
pried from their hinges. 

Cmmtless times outerdonn and 
male/female separating ckx)rs 
are tMxAen after midnight lock- 
up. Any damage of this type 
could be avoided by a simple 
walk to Security. Extension 
phones ripped from the wall, 
clothing dryers filled with urine, 
and vending machines which 
have been tampered with are 
also not an uncommon sight. 
Pertiaps, this rise is due to the 
increased number of students. 
However, I feel it is a dir«:t 
reflection of the sort of itxii- 
viduals attending DVC. We are 
no l(mger a school of "Aggies." 
With the addition of new ma- 
jors, and the coUege downplay- 
ing the National Farm School 
image, an entirely different stu- 
dentpopulation is present. More 

urbanites are infiltrating DVC's 
Optionally rural ranks. 

This campus and its donnito- 
ries sit our home. We must 
remember that the cost of repair- 
ing any damage incurred will 
come ftom our breakage funds 
(one element of the tuition 
check). The typical student is 
not troubled by vandalism at all, 
until tl^ end of the semester wt^n 
damage charges are assessed. 

To onnbat this surmounting 
problem, we, as residents must 
all resolve to reiKler the situa- 
tion. Ifthe culprits of each indi- 
vidual act admitted guilt or were 
reported by another, never again 
would an entire dotm be chafed 
for a specific individual's or 
group's senseless actions.

SAC Offended 

Dear Editor: 

I enjoyed reading the Febru- 
ary 25th issue qf Ram Pages 
except the article entitled "On 
Edge". In it, Michelle Slay- 
baugh, news editor, writes "As 
a pleasant relief from SAC's 
usual, mundai^ activity cakxi- 
dar..." As treasurer of the Stu- 
^nt Government, I am aware 
of the budget SAC has to work 
with each semester. I am also 
aware of the hard work the 
entire committee does in plan- 
ning, and setting up for these 

If Michelle Slaybaugh is un- 
happy and feels the events SAC 
puts on lack diversity, she 
should either join SAC to as- 
sist them in their quest to bring 
the student a variety of events, 
or express her feeUngs to a 

SAC member, thereby giving 
him/her a charKe to respond. 

MiclKlle if you personally 
enjoyed "On Edge" that's fan- 
tastic. Personally, I don't like 
that type of music, Ixit "to each 
their own'*. What you need to 
realize, Michelle, is that you 
can't please everyone all of tlw 
time. So, next time, please 
appro^h a SAC member and 
try not to write little na.sty com- 
ments about the hard work the 
students of SAC are doing. 

From where I'm from, hard 
wort is applauded, and I would 
like to applaud each and every 
member of SAC for a JOB

Editorial Response 

To Ron Trom- 
bino and the 
entire SAC: 

I would like to sincerely 
apologize for showing disre- 
spect to tl^ efforts of your 

Personally, I am bored by 
the majority of SAC's activi- 
ties. In the article "On Edge," 
I conveyed my personal views; 
however, I represent a (seem- 
ingly) small minority of the 
student body here at Del-Val. 
When I hear about tiie exti^me 
amounts of exciting activities 
offered at other colleges, I am 
truly jealous. Many individu- 
als I have spoken to share this 

I do not doubt that the mem- 
bers of SAC work very hard on 
their various projects. How- 
ever, I fQ&\ that with tte mea- 

ger funds that SAC possesses, 
they should not spend such large 
amounts of money on junior 
high-esque events like Fun 
Flicks, which many stuctents 
simply pass by and laugh. 

As far as constructive criti- 
cism, most itKiividuals of col- 
lege age enjoy live music. I 
realize that not everyone lis- 
tens to the same type of music; 
but tfiere are manyquality bands 
just starting out that welcome 
any venue. They could be got- 
ten for minimal cost and could 
appear quite often. 
Finally, I wish to invite Ron, 
or any other member of SAC 
wIk) is displeased witii the Ram 
Pages reporting on SAC events 
to join my staff and lessen my

Many times, each of us has 
chosen the more socially de- 
sired path in a situati(Hi instead 
of doing what we believed was 
right. The apparent lack of 
morality in this country is dis- 
turbing. It infiltrates our me- 
dia and pollutes the vunerable 
mind's of our children. For 
instance, it*s becoming a wide 
spread belief and tradition that 
it's perfectly O.K. to steal as 
long as you don't get caught? 
Everyone speaks of things and 
possessions instead of us and 

It wasn't always like this. 
People didnot bolt themselves 
securely in tl^ir houses every 
night with five locks including 
a dead bolt and turn on the 
electronically controlled silent 
alarm system. People used to 

Morality in America 

walk in and out of houses 
borrowing sugar aiKi butter 
freely. Now tl»y rip off jew- 
ehry and iK)velties for drug 

Putting the sense of moral- 
ity back into place in this coun- 
try is an arduous task. Our 
decision making skills and 
mOTal codes havebeen instilled 
from birth. Aspects of our 
moral fiber were formed at the 
Consider tttf following state- 
ment, " If you see what you 
believe, thai you believe what 
you see!" In other words, if 
you are brought up in an envi- 
ronment in which parents nur- 
ture and illustrate positive 
moral behaviors then you will 
toid to practice what you have 
learned and vice versa. 

Unfortunately, if we scruti- 
nize our past with some cer- 
tainty arKl open-mindedness we 
find some awfully disturbing 
details. The nuclear family in 
our »)ciety has all tnit disap- 
pearal. Today, both mothers 
arKl fathers normally work, thus 
leaving junior home to figure 
life out by himself. On the 
whole, three generations arai't 
living under one roof too much 
anymore, sharing the tricks of 
tte trade and teaching the young- 
sters the art of being an adult 
Hell, most of us can probably 
count atleast three to fiveempty 
rooms at Iwme used only for 
one specific ctwre like reading. 
Most of us have one and a half 
to two and a half baths. It used 
to be that six or eight people 
shared one bathroom. Now all 

of sudden we need all this 

We (d^e our old people 
away in homes. Tl^y should 
be teaching our kids. Have 
you ever really sat and talked 
with an older person, gotten 
past all the niceties and really 
talked to them. Believe me, 
they have a lot to teach. 
They've seen it all arxi can 
reflect We can leam fit>m 
their mistakes. 

It is not too late for our gen- 
eration. We have to make a 
difference. Turn it arourKl with 
our kids, instill the morality 
and some tradition and culture 
once again. Look at the J^a- 
nese, they revere their older 
people. They are the wisest of 
the wise. People have gotten 
away from tlKir families and 

drawn closer to empty escapes 
and the nothingness void of 
television, and movies, drugs, 
and alcohol. 

What can be done about 
teaching or bringing about 
phase change, a metamorpho- 
ses, in ttie moral axk of young 
Americans? Your questions, 
comments and ideas are most 
welcome and expected. I 
strongly feel that morality is a 
puzzle ttiat an individual puts 
togetiier over a lifetime. Un- 
fortunately, the morality puzzle 
in the nineties is missing many 
ineces. Where do we find the 
pieces? I'm not quite sure. 
What's scarier is that I don't 
know if we as a people are 
interested in looking for those 
missing pieces. 

From DVC's Business Manager 

We realize many people are 
frustrated with the present 
parking situation and feel there 
is little being done. 1 would 
like to assure all ttiat every 
fsten oossible is being taken to 

correct the problems. 

The new design for campus 
parking and traffic patterns is 
only about half -way complete 
and patience from everybody 
is reeded. The goal, which 
have ttie objectives of safety 
and beautification, is to elimi- 
nate campus cross traffic and 
turn DVC into a walking cam- 

To achieve this goal, a new 
parking lot has been con- 
structed across from Lake Ar- 
cher and next to the soccer 
field. It is a stone lot which 
will be paved in the future, but 

it is presently available foruse. 
We are asking the commuting 
stu(tents to utilize this as it is a 
convenient distance from the 
main class buildings with an 
enjoyable walk past the lake. 
To park in this lot students 
should enter from the New 
Britain Rd. entrance. The path 
which runs along Lake Archer 
is for pedestrian use only. 

To alleviate the problem of 
non-staff permnr^l paricing in 
the staff and faculty areas be- 
hind Lasker and Mandell, secu- 
rity has been instructed to have 
any offencters towed and tick- 
eted. The vehicle will be towed 
to the lot behind ihs Ag Ma- 
chinery building and the owner 
will be charged for-the tow and 
issued a ticket. These regula- 
tions are supported by the Stu- 
dent Parking Committee and 
will go into effect after Spring

"Chi Saturday, November 
10, at 1:45 A.M. fire swept 
through the Louchheim Gym- 
nasium, which is situated on 
the main campus of tl^ Na- 
tional Agriculture College. 
Within the short space of a half 
an hour, despite the efforts of 
several members of the Volun- 
teer Fire Departments the gym

The students and their dates, 
who were on cunpus for the 
College Weekend had been 
square darling in the gym only 
a few short Iwurs before the 
firebnAeout ITiey and people 

formiles around, were aroused 
by the fire alarms and the bright 
red glow in the sky. Those on 
the scene saw that rwthing 
could be done to save the build-

to preventing the fire from 

TJw loss of the gymnasium 
was driven home to many stu- 
dents the following week. The 
basketball team had to find a 
new place to practice; the Phys 
Ed classes were left shivering 
on the field for lack of indoor 
facilities, and many students 
who had used the gym for a 
frioidly basketball game with 
feUow classmates where left 
out in the cold. The possibil- 
ity of Intramural basketball was 

also ruled out forthis year. Hope 
was to rise again after the shock 
of tlK fire had subsided. The 
next day, Presidem Work held a 
previously scheduled Board of 
Directors meeting and it has 
been reliably reported the main 
topic of discussion was how to 
replace the valuable asset the 
college lost Speculation was 
rampant throughout the student 
body on the plans of the new 
gym, and whether it might in- 
clucte a swimming pool. As one 
student put it, "It would really

Winter Track Season Runs to the 
Final Stretch 

By Denise Kehm 

Sports writer 

The first indoor season of track 
and field under Head Coach Lori 
McCauley came to a close on 
Saturday, Febniary 27 at Dick- 
inson College - the site of the 
Middle Atlantic Conference 
Championships. Even though 
only a select nunbcr of athletes 
qualified forthe chamfMonships, 
the results were impressive. 
Forthe men. Sophomore Mike 
Hopstetterpulledout a personal 
best of 44 feet 3/4 inches on his 
last throw to earn 3rd place in 
the men's shot-put Barry Bos- 
ketcompetedintwo events, run- 
ning to a 3rd place finish in the 
55m hurdles in 7.9 seconds and 
an 8th place in the 55m dash in 
6.7 seconds. Junior Chuck Hol- 
liday represented Del Val in the 
5000m, earning a 3rd place 
medal with a time of 15:29. 

The Del Val ladies were led 
by 4 individuals. Tracic Mon- 
tague ran the 200m at a time of 
29.7 seconds. Also, Fawn Freed 
competed in the 400m with a 

time of 65.9 seconds and the 
200m sprint in 29.1 seconds. 
These two freshman participants 
ran personal records by improv- 
ing upon their qualifying times. 
Sophomore Michelle McBride 
long jumped to an iiKk)or per- 
sonal record of 15 feet and 3 
inches and tied for 5th place in 
the 55m hurdles with anottier 
personal record of 9.3 seconds. 
Junior Denise Kehm threw her 
way to a 5th place in the shot- 

The track team uses the in- 
door season as a warm-up for 
the outdoor season, where lead- 
ership by the aforementioned 
attiletes and increased participa- 
tion and practice time will help 
the Aggies get off to a nmning 
start. Coach McCauley is 
pleased with the team and stated, 
"I've seen a lot of improvement 
at practice." Be on the lookout 
for home track meets in April to 
show your sui^rt for these

Wrestlinfif Team Finishes 2nd 
at MAC CHampionsliips 

••..falling to Moravian College 

By Charlotte Walker 

Sports Editor 

The DVC wrestling team com- 
peted at the Middle Atlantic 
Conference (MAQ champion- 
ships on February 26th and 27th 
at Elizabethtown College. Be- 
fore the tournament DVC Coach 
Marshall stated, "This is prob- 
ably the most wide-open tour- 
nament in years. It's going to 
come down to a point or two and 
probably won't be decided until 
the final round." 

Coach Marshall's prediction 
was right on the mark as the 
winner was decided by the small 
margin of only 1.25 points. The 
final scores were: Moravian - 
101.5, Delaware Valley - 
100.25, and Lycoming - 98.75. 
This gave Moravian their first 
MAC title ever in the history of 
their school. 

The Aggie champions were 
Kurt Handel, Demetri Kangas, 
and Mike Johnson. Kurt Han- 
del wastlK 2nd seed at the 177 
pound weight class and Ik wcm 
the champicmship by (tefeating 
JeffRay(the lstseed)of King's 
College 7-4. Demetri Kangas 

ci^red his fourth MAC cham- 
pionship at 134 pounds after 
defeating Barry Weyandt of 
Lycoming 7-3. Mike Johnson, 
who completed a 24-0 season, 
wonhisthinltitleat l58pounds. 

At the 1 1 8 pound weight class, 
Delaware Valley's Kurt Peavey 
(third seed) came in second 
place. He defeated Pete Shimkin 
of Mulenberg 8-6 in overtime in 
the semifinal bout but was de- 
feated in the finals by 
Elizabethtown s Mike .\hem. 

Other DVC wrestlers com- 
peted in the consolation finals. 
Mike Reichaid came in sixth 
place at 142 pounds and heavy- 
weight Matt Metz finished in 
fourth place. 

The Aggies had a 13-4 season 
and have had winning records 
for the past 24 years. The fact 
that Moravian won was surpris- 
ing to some, since they had an 8- 
8 season. Even most of the 
coaches thought it would be 
fought out between DVC, Ly- 
coming, and Mulenberg. 

Along with Moravian's title 
they also have become the first 
team other than DVC or Ly- 

coming to win thee MAC title 
in 23 years. The coach of the 
Moravian wrestlers, Roger 
Grubbs really summed up 
how ti^t the competition was 
this year whenhe stated, "You 
look back through the tour- 
nament and every extra point 
we picked up becomes im- 
portant. You don ' t know it at 
the time, but some bout we 
may have won in the first 
round might have done it." 
The Aggies had been hop- 
ing for their third straight 
MAC title, but will now have 
to wait until next year to try 
again. As Coach Marshall 
said. "Sure, we're disap- 
pointed, but give them credit. 
We gave it our best shot and 
it was only good enough for 
us to get close." 
The champions qualified for 
the NCAA Division III Tour- 
nament that was Iwld at the 
Coast Guanl Academy. 

Congratulations to the 
Delaware Valley Wrestling 
team on anotiier winning sea- 
son and for a job well dooc by 
all of the memben of the

Lady Aggies End Season in 
MAC Playoffs 

On Febraary 23 the Lady 
Aggies {dayed against the 
Crusaders of Susquehanna 
University in the first round 
of the MAC playoffis, result- 
ing in defeat 80-58. 

Aggies with 18 pts. She has 
scored 1,287 pts in her ca- 
reer. . Also leading the Ag- 
gies were Natasha Upson with 
11 pts. and Melanie Folk- 
iewicz with 10 pts. The Dela- 
ware Valley College Aggies 

led early in the game, but the

that put the game in their favor 
and locked away the victory.

able to the many interpreta- 
tions of his woik in Ireland. 
The most noticeable symbols 
are the color green whidi is 
due to tiie fact most of Ireland 
is countiyside(grass and trees) 
in fact, Ireland is often referred 
to as tf^ Emerald Isle. There is 
also the shamrock which is 
three sided normally. It is be- 
lieved that the shamrock sym- 
bolizes the Holy Trinity. Also, 
St. Patrick is often depicted in 
paintings as chasing away 
snakes and monsters. This was 
adopted due to Patrick's con- 
version of the pagans. Lesser 
known symbols are a baptis- 
mal font which signified his 
many converts, and a harp, a 
popular musical instrument of 
die Irish. 

The celebrations are most 
noticed in the faoiedilt. Patty 's 
Day^^es. "Q^Ji^L^cog-, 
nized of ohose {»amde«>-is the 

Manhattan parade, in New 
York. Since 1762, and in some 
references as far bade as 1684, 
the St Patrick's Day Parade 
has been an annual event oc- 
curring every March 17. The 
earlierparades were sponsored 
by the Friendly Sons of St 
Patrick. In 1838. the Ancient 
Order of Hibernians took over 
as sponsors of the parade. As 
many as 125 ,000 people march 
in the Manhattan parade's two 
and a half mile route which 
passes by St. Patiick's Cathe- 
dral. The participants include 
a mounted police escort, the 
famed Fighting 69, now called 
the 1 65th Infantry Regiment of 
the New York National Guard. 
Other participants include two 
Irish wolfhounds which have 
b^n the parade 's mascots since 
1 85 1 , and close to 400 march- 
,ing bands, w^y;iiQ^^ die 
Emerald Society's *»f» and 

Drum Band of the New York 
City Police Department Also 
many sdiool marching bands, 
firefighters, members of the 
armed forces, hatemal groups, 
and many others participate in 
the celebratioa There are many 
traditional songs like 
McNamara's Band, When Irish 
Eyes Are Smiling, and My 
Wild Irish Rose [performed. 

The most present and im- 
portant color is of course green. 
People wear boni^ts, jackets, 
carnations, shoes, socks, and 
ties. Food (comed beef and 
cabbage), and drink (beer) are 
colored green, and some pe(^le 
even colored tiieir white dogs

the classrooms to accommo- 
date the south-paws of the col- 
lege. During winter break, the 
old, uncomfortable wooden 
desks were taken out and re- 
placed with new. semi-com- 
fortable plastic desks. 

This change has only taken 
place on the first floor of the 
Feidman building. This means 
that there are still two other 
classroom buildings to be re- 
furnished and one classroom 
on the second floor of Feid- 
man. Hopefully, the college 
will continue to meet the de- 
mands for safety in the class- 

The students are now obli- 
gated to take care of these new 
desks to ensure they remain in 
decent condition. This means 
that the little childish games of 
carving initials and defacing 
the tops of the desks should 
now stop. It is about time that 
some of the children in this 
college started to grow up and 
act more maturely. The col- 
lege has responded to the 
student's needs; the students 
should now show their appre- 
ciation forthe school's efforts.

calves roaming the fields along- 
side their mothers. The baby 
Polled Hereford steer pictured 
above is the latest addition to the 
herd. He was bomFriday, March

cows due to calve. Stop down; 
maybe you'U have the opportu- 
nity to watch something spec- 
tacular-the birth of a calf! 

On the Dairy Farm, there is one 
Jersey calf that was bom sixteen 
weeks prematurely over the 
weekend; the calf is doing fine. 
Also as of press time, a Brown 
Swiss cow was expecting . Since 
a full moon occured over the

rifying what oil does to wild-

were most harmed were: sea

Commander Reed, who has 
been in the Coast Guard for 
almost 20 years, was sta- 
tioned in Valdez, Alaska m 
1989 and 1990. 
The 1 1 million gallon spill 
devastated an area of 15(X) 
miles in Alaska. The four 
year old spill is still the topic 
of healed discussion, be- 
cause media reports have 
been clouded by emotion.

One of the main controver- 
sies of the clean up of the spill 
was whether or not to bum the 
oiloff of the waterand the rocks. 
At first the state of Alaska al- 
lowed the oil to be burned, but 
it was quickly outlawed because 
of the intense black smoke that

The wildlife ot Uaska was onto barges that ended up in a 


landfill in Oregon. 

TTie radar system of the 
Exxon Valdez wasnotefficient, 
which was the leading cause of 
the oil spill. The spill occurred 
after the Exxon Valikz loaded 
the tanks full of oil and was 
leavingthe 3,000residenttown 
of Valdez. As the Exxon Val- 
dez attempted to avoid the ice- 
bergs of Prince William Sound, 
it hit the Bligh Reef. As Mr. 
Reed stated, "If the radar sys- 
tem was stronger they might 
have seen the reef " The radar 
system is only an advisory and 
it will not prevent the tanker 
from sailing in an unsafe area. 

A process that was used ex- 
tensively to clean up the oil is 
known as bioremediation. This 
process allowed Mother Na- 
ture and Exxon to woik to- 
gether. In bioronediation a 
bacteria eats die oil off of the 
rocks and the beaches. 

Mr. Reed cleared up many of 
the myths and explained all 
sides of die issue. When plac- 
ing blame for the oil spill Jack 
Reed stated, "We are all guilty 
of the Exxon Valdez, we all 
want to drive our cars. It is not 
one persons fault"

Groundhog's Day 
Starring Bill Murray 

By Jen Misko 

Staff Writer 

If you liked "City Slickers" 
you will love "Groundhog's 
Day". This comedy starring 
Bill Murray is a fantastic psy- 
chotherapy for anyone who is 
trying to discover the meaning 
of life. Billy Crystal, in "City 
Slickers" must have been talk- 
ing right to Bill Murray when 
he said "life is a do over just 
like when the ball gets roofed 
in street comer stick ball". 

Phil, a pessimistic weather 
man, played by Bill Murray, 
relives one day in his life over 
and over until he gels it right. 
This touching comedy leaves 
the viewer with a weighted 
sense of optimism about the 
intricacies of life. 

All in all, a neatly wrapped 
love story, comedy and moral 
allegory tightly rolled inio one 
must see picture.

a mouse. After growth occurs, a 
survival surgery is performed and 
the tumor is removed. The tumor Is 
thai re-injected into the sane mouse 
and the immune response is as- 
sessed and measured. 

Many of the studies that are con- 
ducted in the Small Animal Lab are 
publi^^ in journals and presented 
at symposiums. 

Lab Strives to 
Simulate Nature 

The health aiKi well being of ail of 
the animals is closely monitored 
daily as part of the normal lab pro- 
cedures. Each ^)ecie$ is provicted a 
diet comparable to the diet they 
would obtain in their natural habi- 
tat Dr. Brubako-, Director of the 
Small Animal Science Program, 
states that, **We do not only feed 
our monkeys dried, labfood,itputs 
too much stre^ m them. We have 
noticed that anatural, well balanced 
diet su{q)lemented with fresh imits 
and vegetables enhances their well- 
being psychologically and well as 
physiologically.** Jen added ,*They 
seem cahner mA look better.** 

In (mler to determine tt» best and 
m(Kt natural envifonment, die Isb 
staff omducted several bduvioral 
studies using the Marmoset mm- 
keys. They determined that largo- 
cage areas, social grouping, novel 
cage objects, and enhanced feedmg 
techniques, were the keys to im- 
proving the psychological well-be- 
ing of these animals. They plan on 

conducting similar studio for each 
animal species in the lab. 

High Tech 



Although the center does not have 
the l^dget for new equiixnent pur- 
chase, over the past few years, the 
facility has obtained state of the art 
instruments aiKl machines through 
donations from many pharmaceuti- 
cal companies. The equipment is 
used for monitoring the health of 
the animals, disease diagnosis, stu- 
dent research projects, and class- 
room studies. 

Tht monitoring equi{xnent and 
procedures mclude: aHematology- 
ELT8 Oitho blood analyze, used 
to set nonnative standards for ev- 
ery animal species; a Radiography

environmental assessment sheet, 
must be logged each lime someone 
enters or leaves an animal room. 
Posted on each door, these forms 
allow quick access to infomiation 
about the condition of the rooms. 

Information such as time in. time 
out, air cycles, temperature and 
feeding schedules are posted on the 
doors. If anything is out of place or 
not documented properly, the last 
perscm who signed in is respon- 
sible. Meticulous records must 
therefore be kept to instill organiza- 
tion aid re^KHisitnUty. 

Orgnized records and immmi- 

late conditions must be maintained 
if a USDA inspector ha^jens to 
appear for a surprise inspection 

A USDA inspector must be ad- 
mitted into the lab within IS min- 
utes of his/her arrival. If he/she is 
kept waiting, or finds anything out 
oforder, the lab receives a warning 
in the form of a citation. Any fol- 
lowing violation results4n a mon- 
etary fine. Another violation may 
result in incarceration. 

Dr. Brubaker proudly announced 
that since the lib's exist^ice, they 
have only received one citation 
since 1987 and only because one 
mouse Mefly escaped into the feed 

Many of the rooms are environ- 
mentally controlled to aid in vari- 
ous experiments and to maintain a 
strict level of FDA standards. 

Animals housed in sterile condi- 
tions receive autoclaved food and 
water. An autoclave uses steam 
under pressure to sterilize animal 
equipment, food, and water. Cer- 
tain mice that students are breed- 
ing, for example, have no immune 
systems, therefore the atmosphere 
must be mechanically regulated. 
Their food must never be touched 
by human hands, and only b;. iier- 
ilized instruments, to prevent germs. 
Air in these '•ooms are likewise 
filtered through ducts on the mice 

In addition to the steniization and 
5 animal rooms, there i« ai ;o a^' 
instructional laborator>. a tissue 
culture and x-ray room, an instru- 
ment room, feed and beddint! stor- 
age room, and clean storage room. 

All of the food in the feed and 
bedding room must also follow FDA 
reguliUions. Food cannot be within 
3 incites of the walls, and must lay 
on raised platforms off tlte floors. 
With these {n-ecautions enacted, 
vermin are less likely to infest the 

An FDA agent oocasianally in- 

spects the feed room to check for 
tears in the bags, open packaging or 

Clesiliness rules are adhered to 
quite rigidly. A ^)ecial washing 
machiite is used to clean tlte animal 
cages. The washing machine uses a 
to 1 80 degrees to fiiUy sanitize the 

To further ensure cleanliness, two 
adjoining rooms are blatantly di- 
vided into clean and diity sides. 
Two diffoent colored floors are 
used to distinguish the rooms. ITie 
cage washer is placed in between 
each room. Oite person stands on 
the dirty side of the msKrhine and 
feeds the dirty ci^es through, while 
another stands on the clean side to 
receive the sanitized cages. This 
way, there will never be any confu- 
sion between the clean and dirty 

Dr. Brubaker claims that the en- 
tire lab set-up itself is "The best 
utilization of 3500 square feet." 

What Happens to 
the Animals? 

Since the lab emphasizes 
humane care animals, it would 
be fitting that they received 
good tomes MeUssa K. Miller, 
the other Lab Supervisor, com- 
mented that they find loving 
families to adopt the animals. 
The lab technicians even keen 
tabs on some of their favorites! 
slated that it is hard "> 
re^ loving these animals 
when you have woriced and 
cared for them for so long. 

Ute lab members also take 
timeb help the world environ- 
mentby recycling. What better 
way to make use of the old 
issues of Ram Pages then to 
use than to line tiie bottom of 
the nbbit cafes!

February was a very harsh month bringing frigid temperatures, ice and 
snow. Everybody knows that driving can become very difficult in these 
ccmditims and proper care in controlling a vehicle nust be taken, but 
other precautions should be taken before voituring out into this weather. 
Tlie following prq)arations should be taken before inclement weather 

1) Nfake sure the vdiicle has the proper mix of anti-freeze. 

2) The windshield washer should be full so any encounters with salt 
may be washed away while driving. 

3) Try to keep the gas tank full or at least three quaiters full on very 
cold nights, so that any excess water that, may be in the tank does not 
crystallize with \(x and decrease tte performance of the vehicle. 

4) Make sure the tires are inflated to the proper air pressure. This will 
provide b^ter traction in snow or ice as well as better gas mileage aiKl 
reduction of tire wear. 

5) Regardless of the weather, always make sure the oil is at the correct 
level so the engine parts receive the lubrication needed to avoid engine 

When die storm airives, die veliicle will be ready to perform 
without any unnecessa7 headaches.

Lake Archer Gone! 

By: Ronald Ray Gun 

Due to the hole in \ht Earth's 
ozone layer(03). Lake Archer's 
volume has decreased by at 
least 35 percent in the past 
year. Since 1990, the volume 
has decreased dramatically. 

According to Dr. Ben Kramer 
from the Colorado Agricultural 
Research Service, "Lake Ar- 
cher will be completely dry by 
1996, since the lake is decreas- 
ing in volume by at least by 2 
percent every day." 

Tliere are many steps which 
can be taken to help slow down 
the evaporation process and to 
bring this calamity to a halt. 

First, to maintain the water 
level, each resident on campus 
should only take one shower 
tdch week so that the unused 
portion of the water can be 
dumped into the lake. 

Second, the washing ma- 
chines owiKd by the school 

can only be used on every fifth 
odd day, starting with April 
1st. Make sure you plan your 
wash schedule carefully. 

Third, bathroom toilets may 
only be flushed once a week 
unless there is danger of a po- 
tential overflow. 

Finally, plans are being made 
for the construction of a ladder 
which will allow workers to 
reconstmct that section of our 

Dr. Kramer stated, "If each 
individual could piu;h in. the 
lake would not dry up till the 
year 2222. Start now and 
change your future!" 

Thanks to the efforts of Dr. 
Kramer, Delaware Valley Col- 
lege (DVC) will be a whole 
new place to be. 

If anyoiK is interested in be- 
coming part of this event, please 
contact yourlocal Agricultural 
Research Service. 


Troughout campus Unex- 
plained appearances of what 
some arc referring to as a "phan-

has appeared several times on

In a surprise move, the Dela- 
ware Valley CoUegc (DVC) 
Board of Directors has de- 
cided to pay the senior year 
tuition for each and every stu- 
dent here at DVC. 

Rumor has it that Board 
members bought some fifty 
Pennsylvania Super Seven 
Lottery tickets with money left 
over from last year's student 
tuirion. It turns out that the 
Board has the only winning 
ticket for a $30,000,000 draw- 
ing. Since the tickets were 
bought with school money, tt^ 
Board must use the money for 
the school. 

A special meeting was held 
to decide what to do with the 
newly acquired ftmds. It was a 
very long meeting that pro- 
duced quite a number of argu- 
ments between boardmembers. 
Since the parking lot and drive 
ways were just repaved and 
upgraded, that was removed 
from the list. Oneboardmem- 
ber suggested some of the fiinds 

be used to upgrade the water 
system, but since the campus 
didn'thavehot water onlyofice 
this year, th^ idea was dropped 
Because tlK desks in many 
classrooms were just replaced 
over the Christmas break, that 
idea was put in the round file. 
Ilie idea of putting a phone in 
every room was tossed around, 
but rejected (hie to the fact that 
most students bring their own 
phones from home. Another 
member suggested replacing 
the dining hall with a 5 star 

restaurant. SirKe the tOod in 
the dining hall "could not pos- 
sibly get any better that it is 
now,"that idea was cast aside. 
Finally, one member of the 
board leccmunended that the 
students should benefit finan- 
cially fix)m the winnings. Af- 
ter all, it was student money 
that allowed tl^ board to buy 
the lotto tickets in the first 
place. The board agreed to pay 
the amount equal to one year 
tuition, room and board. The 

only thing that students would 
have to buy would be books 
and meals beyond their meal 
plsns. To make the price of 
books more affordable, the 
boaid b now subsidizing the 
bookstore, allowing for the 
price of books to fall below 
**their already economically 
affonlable price." 

Seniors will be receiving a 
reftmd check fortius ycar(*92- 
'93) starting in one month. 
From tiiere, the school will not 
require students to pay fortheir 

senior year tuition. Should a 
student transfer before becom- 
ing a senior, they will receive 
a reftmd cl^ck for the past 

All students should watch 
their mailboxes for their re- 
fund checks, or the paperwork 
for free tuition. The forms for 
free tuition must be completed 
by May 15, 1993. Otherwise, 
you wlU not be consi(tered for 
tlK program. So get those 
forms in as soon as possible, 
and save yourself a fortune.

Buffalo, NY - The coaches 
of the infamous Buffalo Bills 
annouiKed that an exhibition 
game with the Delaware Val- 
ley Colleges (DVC) Aggies 
will take place on August 20, 
1993. The coaches of both the 
Bills and the Aggies are dis- 
cussing the fin^ plans for ttiis 
exciting game. Both DVCs 
players and coaches are await- 
ing the match up and look for- 
ward to the challenge. 

The exhibition idea of hav- 
ing professional teams play 

against college teams came 
about for a few reasons. First, 
this will give the college teams 
a great deal of publicity and 
also the experience against 
these well trained teams. Sec- 
ond, it wiU give the college 
players a chance to experience 
real injuries and be introduced 
to new medical practices. 

Coach Manlove stated, 
"Coach Marv Levy is looking 
forward to ttvt exhibition game 
and hopes that his team will 
use the experience as a good 

practice for the regular season 
as they look to play in the 
superbowl for a fourth time." 

DVC students also look for- 
ward to packing the footbaU 
stadium beyond capacity and 
the sports department hopes 
this will keep the students in- 
terested in the team in the com- 
ing season. 

It will be very interesting to 
see Jim Kelly and his offense 
square off against the GREAT 
DVC DEFENSE the "Big-D" 
of DVC and the graduates of 

So, show your support for 
the AGGIES tor this exhibi- 
tion game and always in the

The Legend of the Lost Left Sock 

Do you ever wonder why 
OIK sock disai^ars from the 
mysterious web of the wash- 
ing machine? 

It all started late one 
Wednesday when Wendy 
went to her white washing 
machine to withdraw her wet 
load of laundry.... 

While Wendy was wistfully 
walking down the hallway, 
she noticed that some water 
was up to her waist. The wild 
washing machine had over- 
flowed. She woefully waded 
in the water, and waged war 
upon the washing machine. 
Wallowuig in her warfare, the 
once warmhearted women 
wept amidst the whirlpool for 
her waning personal warmth. 

"Why ctoes this always hap- 
pen to me," she wondered? 

"Well, I'll waste this worn- 
out washing machine, 
"Wendy whispered beneath 
her wavering breath! 

Wendy wailed die war-cry 
of an Indian warrior, and went 
upon her mission of revenge. 

First, she thought that she 
could warp the washing 
machine's mechanisms by 
drowning it in whisky. It 
would become woozy, 
waddle, cease functioning. 
Wendy waverwl upon her de- 

cision, however, because ste 
feared her wardrobe would 
reek from the wretched liquid. 
Wendy wandered about 
wringing her hands, contem- 
plating the rising whirlpool. 
Suddoily , she wtelped for joy , 
her "WHOOP' resounding 
through the watery wilderness 
tlutt WIS once her house. 

Waddling toward her weapon 
collection, Wendy withdrew 
the sword hanging on the wall. 

"WEE! I wiU enjoy this one," 
Wendy said as she whet her 
sword and willfully waved it 
in the air. 

In a lushing fraizy Wendy 
ran down the hall, into the 
laundry room, wailing, "I'll 
get you, you worthless piece 
of tin! I can withstand the 
agonies of this war, and I will 

She needed her water skis to 
warrant her rev^ge. Sud- 
denly, Wendy 's skis stumbled 
upon a WISK laundry deter- 
gent cap, and she lost her bal- 

Wendy's force could not 
match the powerful washing 
machine, thus her sword otily 
produced a weak "wack!" 

She stood by the machiiK, 
stunned, and whimpered un- 
der her breath, i am not wor- 

thy. All I wanted was to teach 
that waterlogged load a lesson, 
xnA now...oh woe is me!" 

In a weiid way, the white 
washing machine was warning 
Wendy of impending doom. 
Each plot was foiled over and 
over again. 

The wrath of tt^ washing 
machine turned from anger to 

"Your wholehear^ efforts 
at revenge were gallant, Wendy, 
but unmatched to the wondrous 
ways of technology. Since I 
have grown quite wearisome of 
your endeavor, I have decided 
to simply make you pay." 

"From now (m, at my discre- 
tion, I will whittle your left, 
woven socks away to nothing 
but dust in the wind. Not only 
will your left socks ^sapptar, 
but sdl of humanity will suffer 
your punishment, Wendy." 

"Do you mean that you will 
eat our left socks, leaving us 
with only the right?" 

"Precisely," answered the 
washing machine. 

"Whew," Wendy exclaimed, 
wiping her brow. 

"1 thought the punishment 
would be more severe," Wendy 
concluded with a whimsical

tion for a rather disturbing

"botUe bomb" had been discov- 

It was found by a member of 
the housekeeping staff, the night 
before in a glass recycling con- 
tainer in the women's end of 
Wolfsohn Hall. When house- 
keeping reported the situation 
to campus security they re- 
sponded by moving the entire 
bin to an area outside the secu- 
rity office. 

This particular bomb type was 
recognized by security because 
they had found remnants of otlKr 
similar devices which had deto- 
nated. Security then contacted 
the New Britain Township and 
Doylestown Police. The gen- 
eral consensus of the Police was 
to bring in the Philadelphia 
Bomb Disposal Unit, (PBDU). 
The PBDU supports Philadel- 
phia and the outlying communi- 
ties, since it is Federally funded 
for the use of its equipment.

Officer Jim McGinty, (Head 
of the Bomb Disposal Unit), 
was quoted as saying that "the 
College acted appropriately, 
exactly the right action was 
taken." After securing the 
area with the road blocks and 
placing guards around the 
perimeter of the area, the 
PBDU deployed a small wire- 
giilJed robot known as the 

Remote Mobile Investigator, 
or"R.M.I.." The robot was 
used to remove the bomb from 
the bin. It opened the bottle, 
thereby releasing the {H'essure 
built up inside. 

An officer from the PBDU 
was then sent into the area, 
equipped with an oxygen tank, 
mask, gloves and otiier safety 
gear, to examine the bomb 

and p^k its contaits for trans- 
port to a diemical analysis lab. 
Although the experts expected 
to smell chlorine gas from the 
bomb, they detected none. 

However, after having dealt 
with the situation, one prevail-

Second annual monopoly tournament 
an overwhelming success 

By Caryn Derr'Daugherfy 

Staff Writer 

Tht second umual Monopoly 
Tmunament was one of the roost 
exciting events lo come to Del 
Val this year. You may ask, what 
is % exciting about a bunch of 
people sitting around playing Mo- 
nopoly all night? Well, the an- 
swer could be because of die out- 
standing buffet dinner prepared 
by the Wood Company , or maybe 
the fact that the grand prize, which 
was donated by the Franklin Mint, 
was the Official Collector's Edi- 
tion of monopoly (gold pieces 
and all) with stand, which is val- 
ued at $790.00. Carole Doyle. 
Director of Special Gifts and Pro- 
grams, was in charge of organiz- 
ing this sucxessful event! 
The reason the event was so 

successful was not only because 
it raised a substantial amoui|t of 
money for the DVC Scholar^ip 
Program, but also becaus^ it 
doubled in size from the previous 
year and gained a lot of positive 
publicity for the college itieif. 
People as far away as New Jeney 
(WPST 97.5 Alumni) came for 
this worthwhile cause. In the end. 
there were 20 team sponiors 
(groups who sponsored a team of 
four) and 21 player sponsors 
(people who paid for one seat). 
Special guests at the toimiament 
included the tournament Co- 
chairs. They were Barbara Ken- 
ney Dommel of Kenney's News 
Agency and Boc^tore, Deb Takes 
of Harleysville National Bank, 
and Robert Campbell of Camp- 
bell Agencies. Inc. Also in atten- 
dance were the Tournament hosts.

A Wet Pride and 

Polish Day 


By Thomas Alberts 

Staff Writer 

The persistent storming and 
saturated ground made life dif- 
ficult for the equally persistent 
Pride and polish volunteers. 
The numerous volunteers all 
had one thing in common, they 
had an important mission to 
accomplish. No matter the 
challenges nature threw at 
them, they knew the strong at 
will would prevail. 
Despite the fact that it was 
pouring outside at times, over 
four hundred students, faculty 
and administrators participated 
in the rifth(5) annual Pride and 
Polish Day on April 1. Pride 
and Polish Day began in 1989 
to allow students, faculty and 
administrators to take a day 
outoftheirbusy schedules, get 
together on the same level, and 
clean up the campus, inside 
and out, in preparation for A- 

As a result of the rain, most 
of the "polish" jolK were done 
inside. The:>c are just an ex- 
Mn|Heof the jobs doms.. ,lTie 

Just a few of the many volunteers wotlcing hard to "PoHah" Segal flail and 
severe other campua buildings 

lounge in Berkowitz Hall was 
painted white with hearts 
adorning the windows. In 
Wolfsohn Hall, some of the 
doors were painted to the 
occupant's specifications. The 
choices of adornment included 
a city skyline, a Hariey/David- 
son sign and Ren and Stimpy. 
The late Mr. Joseph P. Ful- 
coly Jr. was the'chaitperson of 
the Pride and Polish Day cqm- 

mittee. However, due to 
Fulcoly's unfortunate death, 
Mr. Robert Sauer. the director 
of financial aid took over as 
chairperson of the committee. 
The picnic that brought a 
close to thU day, had to be 
moved insifdfc to the All Pur- 
pose Room because of the rain. 
Overall, the fifth annual Pride 
" and Polish da^f'S^ks a success, 
albeit, a wet cAie.

Communication Scores an A+ 

By Mamt Sugarman 

Health A Science Editor 

Communication was the 
theme of the two guest speak- 
ers who graced Mrs. June 
Gomez's Technical Writing 
class last week. The English 
Depaitmott welcomed one of 
DVC's employees and one of 
Doylestown Hospital's most 
important people. 

Sharon Montayne, Coordi- 
nator of Research and Grants 
at DVC, explained the nature 
of proposal writing and their 
applications in all carers. A 
proposiH is a persuasive writ- 
ten document that suggests a 
certain course of action forcon- 

sideration and pnmiises future 

Montayne, whose primafy 
resp(»isibility is to pursue i\mds 
for the college, exploits tMs 
fonn of technical writing to its 
limits. She considers herself a 
jack-of-all-trades. "I act as a 
mediator between entities, a 
synthesizer of data, and coor- 
(tinator of details," Montayne 

Montayne further explain^ 
that proposals usually require 
a team effort and attention to 
details, which all come together 
in the written document. 

Susan Gordon, Director of 
Public relations at Doylestown 

Hospital, spoke about the im- 
portance of communication in 
the health care professicm. 

Goitkxi and her staff pro- 
duce consumer brochures and 
magazines, physicians jour- 
nals, internal and external 
newsletters, business and mar- 
keting surveys, and memos. 
Additionally, she handles press 
releases for the media. 

Her job does not end there, 
however. She must make sure 
that all of the in house writing 
has a consistent voice and all 
material is kept up-to-date. 

Communication is important 
in Gordon's field so patients 
are fully infonned and the com-

Goidon fiiither stressed that 
technical writing is a growing 
field with numerous job oppor- 
tunities, but it is also a very 
competitive field. The technic- 
cal writer must possess good 
basic writing aiKl communica- 
tion skills as well as computer

Both speakers agree that in 
their diverse fields, written com-

the keys underlying every pro-

President Clinton has recently 
offered to change the way stu- 
dents receive flnancial aid for 
college. Starting with 1.000 
jobs this summer and growing 
to 100,000+ in four years, the 
program is designed to make 
college affordable to everyone 
while creating involvement in 
education, health, safety, and 
environmental projects. 

On March 2, during a speech 

at Rutgers University, Clinton 
unveiled his plan to allow stu- 
dents to repay loans through 
community service. The pro- 
gram was a centerpiece of the 
Clinton campaign. He selected 
the thirty-second anniversary 
of President Kennedy's cre- 
ation of the Peace Corps to for- 
mally propose the plan, which 
still requires Congressional 

The plan is designed to re- 
structure federal student aid 

programs and offer Ameri- 
cans opportunities and incen- 
tive to perform such commu- 
nity services as working in 
inner city children ' s health and 
drug clinics, tutoring in lit- 
eracy programs, and walking 
streets in neighboriiood po- 
lice programs. Individuals 
who choose not to enter pub- 
lic secvice can repay loans at a 
percentage of their income - 
not the amount borrowed. 
Clinton feels this would en- 

courage graduates to enter the 
lower paying, but critical jobs 
of teaching and working in 
conmiunity health care facili- 

One year of service would 
qualify students for two years 
of college loans. Students may 
borrow first arwl enter service 
after graduation, or enter ser- 
vice after high school and ac- 
crue credits for loans. A sti- 
pend would likely be paid at or 
near minimum wage while a 

student is involved in the pro- 

After a pilot project of about 
1,000 students this sunmier, 
paid with $15 million of 
Clinton's economic stimulus 
package, the president pro- 
poses spending $7.4 billion 
in the next four years, going 
from 25,000 slots in 1994 to 
more than 100,000 in 1997. 
Funding would then increase

In interviews with Frank 
Buric, Plant engineer, and Paul 
Schatschneider, Business Man- 
ager, the situation appeared 
less dangerous when house- 
keeping first discovered the 
bomb. When reviewed by se- 

curity, they realized the true 
potential for danger and called 
the local authorities, who in 
turn contacted the PBDU. One 
thing was evidently clear, as 
stated by Mr. Burk, "this was a 
real threat to students and hard- 
woricing, low-paid, workers." 
Mr. Schatschneider com- 
mented that "the person or per- 
sons who took part in this are 
either very stupid or very mali- 


The investigation into the 
whole bombing scenario was 
also discussed with Dean Jar- 
ret, Dean of Students. Jarret 
revealed that there are suspects 
at this time, and that the situa- 
tion is currently being handled 
as firmly as possible. The al- 
leged suspect will be held re- 
sponsible for the inconve- 
niences to all parties involved.

the costs for bringing the police 
and the PBDU onto the scene. 

An investigation has begun 
with Wolfsohn Hall, and there 
are leads both on and off cam- 
pus. Jarret added "that it is very 
likely the culprit(s) are resi- 
dents." This is a logical as- 
sumption since there are statis- 
tics that show that 85% to 90% 
of damages to colleges are done 
by residents. Different meth- 
ods of determining the identity 
of the culprits are being used, 
including fingerprinting, even 
though this method may not be 
reliable since anyone may have 
handled the bomb. 

Although it is a valid point 
that this bomb was not neariy as 
powerful as that of the Worid 
Trade Centerbombing, this par- 
ticular bomb potentially could 
have killed or maimed some- 
one. Since the bomb was left in 
a bin full of glass, the explosion 
would have flung razor sharp 
glass pieces like shrapnel, in- 
creasing its destnictive power. 
As to the contents of the bomb, 
there are two distinct possibili- 
ties, either they were derived 
from store bought paaterials, or 

they were taken from school 
su[^lies. Ifthe chemicals used 
were indeed taken from a 
school laboratory or other 
school supplies on campus, 
DVC security will look into 
boosting the level of protec- 

To help prevent problems 
like this in the future, DVC 
will have the PBDU present 
videos and information about 
this subject, however as of 
this issue there has been no 
decision on the format of such 
programs. Bomb training will 
also become part of Resident 
Assistant, (RA) training in the 

As a closing note Mr. 
Schatscneider and the other 
staff members wanted to stress 
the seriousness of this matter 
and how the individual(s) 
could cause a real catastrophe. 
Hopefully, anyone whokiwws 
something about this incident 
or the people doing it will 
come forward before it hap- 
pens again, and causes real 
harm aiKl damage or possibly 
kills s(Mneone] .

Rain falls on the Softball and baseball teams 

By Charlotte Walker 

Sports Editor 

Delaware Valley College's 

Softball and baseball teams had 
difficulty trying to play games 
this season. Mother Nature's 
rain and snow have continued to 
fall on us here In Buck's County 
and all of Pennsylvania. 

The baseball team playedits 
flrst games on April 5. It was a 
double header against FDU- 

Madison. At press time it has 
been reported that the Aggies 
were victorious in the first 
game; the second game was 
not looking as bright. Prior to 
this day the team has not been 
able to play a single game. 

The Softball team has only 
played one game this season, 
against Wesley College. This 
season opener resulted in a 1 6- 
18 defeat. 

The next home Softball game 

is on April 12 at 2:30 pm. 
when Hk lady Aggies will 
face Centenary College in a 
double header. 

The next home baseball 
game Is April 14 at 3:00 pta 
when they will pitch against 
Muhlenberg College. Hope- 
fully the weather will coop- 
erate for the games in the 
remainder of the season.

New recreational facility 
being planned at DVC 

By Charlotte Walker 

Sports Editor 

Delaware Valley CoUcgc 
is cunenty investigating pro- 
posals for new recreational 
facilities. As President West 
stated in his original press 
release, "We have acquired 
seed funding from several 
sources and will be getting 
more to accomplish a signifi- 
cantrecreational project" No 
concrete plans have been 
made, but many ideas are 
being explored. Business 
Manager Paul Schatschnei- 
dercxprcssed thatpeoplchave 
been thinking about this 
project for a few years. 
The funding will come from 
outside sources, therefore, tu- 
ition will not be affected. Ac- 
cording to Henry Sumner (Di- 
rector of Development and 

Annual Giving) there are pres- 
ently six sources of funding 
including four individuals and 
two foundations. One foun- 
dation has pledged the equiva- 
lent to ten percent of the total 
cost for the minimum pro- 
posed project 

The recreational facilities 
being considered will fulfill

ventures vary in terms of size 
and cost One plan, costing 
approximately $500,000 in- 
cludes an addition to the Rud- 
ley Neuman Gymnasium with 
a new weight room, wrestling 
room, aerobic room, locker 
room, aiui offices. Another 
possibility is a multipurpose 
field house. It would enclose 
the tennis courts with an in- 
door track encircling the 

courts. The proposed field 
house would cost between 
two and three million dol-

The final project decided

April 8. 1993 


Over the past year and a half 
we have learned much about 
team woric and responsibili- 
ties. This is a brief summary 
about what we, the Edi tors-In- 
Chief of Ram Pages, feel are 
some of the key elements nec- 
essary to lead a team of volun- 
teers. We also believe these 
elements apply to other volun- 
teer groups such as clubs, gov- 
ernment and business oriented 

The first thing to keep in 
mind is that the leaders are also 
team members and every per- 
son involved must work as a 
team member. Any one person 
who insists on operating as an 
individual is cj^able of throw- 
ing the entire organization into 
a state of chaos. Although a 
cliche, "A chain is only as 
strcmg as its weakest link", it is 
the perfect explanation of team 
effort. At times it is necessary 
to put personal differences 
aside and remain focused on 
the team's main objective or 
goal. It is not only profes- 
sional, but it is the responsible 
thing to do. 

Responsibility. According 
to Webster's it is: reliability. 

tmstworthincss. BURDEN. To 
a leader of a team of volun- 
teers, BURDEN is probably 
the best description for the job. 
The leaders of volunteer orga- 
nizations are usually respon- 
sible fortheirteam accomplish- 
ing or meeting a goal. At times 
this can be a difficult task due 
to the lack of incentive avail- 
able to the team members. VeVy 
often these members feel they 
orUy have to do what they want 
when they want. 

This is the point where the 
team members must realize 
they have also acquired a BUR- 
DEN. To accept a position or 
a title with a volunteer organi- 
zation can be an impressive 
resume booster. At the same 
time the member should also 
accept the responsibility as 
though they have taken a paid 
job. Everything they do, or do 
not do. will have either a posi- 
tive or negative effect upon the 
entire team. One person can 
make or break a team. 

To maintain a positive and 
effective woilcing environment 
it is imperative to keep open 
communication between team 
members. It is easy to say thai 

communication is important, 
but to successfully maintain 
open communications through- 
out a team is much more diffi- 
cult. Speaking is one of the 
most natural and easiest things 
for a person to do, yet when it 
comes to problem solving it is 
the last method used. We have 
found that 99% of the prob- 
lems and rumors that occur in 
an office or team environment 
can be solved or dissolved sim- 
ply by discussing it with the 
source. Too often problems 
are discussed witheveryone but 
the source, thus creating a ma- 
jor conflict that disrupts the 
entire teams efforts. AH of this 
expended, and potentially nega- 
tive, energy could have been 
put toward the teams goal. 
These are iK)t rules or laws. It 
is just some frieiKlly advice 
from a couple of tired seniors 
who want to make your jobs a 
little easier. For those who 
wish to accomplish something 
meaningful with the time you 
invest, accept responsibility 
with the knowledge that one 
must follow through and al- 
ways try to maintain open com- 
munications within your team. 

Please remember, opinions that 
are supported by facts will help 
maintain credibility! All letters 
to the Editor must be signed in 
order to be published^ ybu may, 
however, request that an cmony- 
mous mrnieor title be used.

Dear Dr. Hill, 

Thanks to the dedication of 
Student Activities, Residence 
Life, and your faithful donors, 
Delaware Valley College col- 
lected 93 pints of life saving 

blood on February 10th. 

One hundred and eleven car- 
ing individuals set aside one 
hour of their day and came out 
to donate a single pint of blood. 
Over the next forty-two days. 

yourgencrosity will benefit 372 
cancer patients, bum victims 
and traumatically injured men. 
women, and children. It must 
feel great to know that Dela- 
ware Valley College has given 

so many people a second 
chance at life! 

I just wanted to let you know 
that the wonderful job the col- 
lege does- with your blood 
drives saving lives. Your sup- 

port of the American Red Cross 
over the last five years could 
not be more appreciated than in 
this time of need

RAPE: College wears 

Dear Editor: 

I am appalled at the lack of 
concern for the women of this 
campus. It is one thing to have a 
security force, but it is another 
thing to have an effective force 
that actually attempts to stop the 
crime that occui^ on this college 
campus. The values of the men on 
this campus are for the most part 
nonexistent! The amount of sexual 
harassment that goes on at this 
campus needs to be addressed 
more by the student body as well 
as the administration. Steps need 
to be taken in tlK future to help 
ensure the safety of the women on 
campus. A main step in the direc- 
tion of safety would be to increase 
the standard of the people whoare 
allowed to attend this college. 
The more unruly people are the 
same ones who caused problems 
in their high schools, so the disci- 
plinary records should be consid- 
ered in the admi ions process to 

a greater degree. 

Tlie women of this college are 
putting their lives on the line 
everytime they unlock doors and 
walk outside of our dorms. The 
numbo^ of r^s that hai^n m 
this campus is unbelievable!! The 
fear that has been instilled upon 
the women of this campus is just 
as great. Speaking as a woman 
who has been raped on the DVC 
campus, I can say that there is an 
atmosphere of fear and of abso- 
lute terror. The fear even tran- 
scends to a simple walk around 
the DVC campus. 1 don't care 
what people say anymore, be- 
cause all I know is that what 
happened to me was not my fault 
and 1 also know that there are 
plenty of other women on this 
campus who have experienced 
the same feelings that I have 
gone through and that I will con- 
tinue to have for the rest of my 
entire life!! 

I came to DVC to leara about 

my field of study and little did I 
know the things that I would go 
through in only my first year of 
college. I do know that life must 
go on, the feelings must be dealt 
with, and that mwe has to be done 
in the future to protect the women 
of this school from our worst en- 
emies - who are some of our clos- 
est friends - the men (boys) of the 
Delaware Valley College cam-

Editors Note: 

To all females who have been 
assaulted, it is imperitive that 
you report crimes of rape aiid 
harassment to the Student Life 
Office. Take action juid follow 
through, not only for yourself, 
but for all DVC women. Mak-

Vandalism Editorial 

Dear Editor: 

With regards to your com- 
ments in the March 1 1, 1993 
issue of Ram Pages, I take 
great offense to the implied 
reference to the Aggies. The 
tone of your comments sug- 
gest that the Aggies were gen- 
erations before the very "re- 
fined status" of today's Del 
Val students, and their behav- 
ior with regard to destniction 
of school property, was char- 
acteristic of ttiem. 

As a member of the class of 
'SO I can say catagorically 
that we took {nide in the physi- 
cal beauty of our campus and 
worked hard to preserve it. 
We Aggies left you much that 
you take for granted - we cre- 
ated A Day just for starters. 
I think you owe us an apol- 


-Josh Greenberg '50 
Glenside, PA 

Mr. Greenberg, 

It is unfortunate that you 
greatly misunderstood the 
tone of my article "Del- Val 
Vandalism: Pr(rt)lem or Way 
of Life." In it I stated "We are 
no longer a school of 
Aggies.. .an entirely different 
student populaticm is present." 
I blamed this factor for the 
alarming regularity of van- 
dalism incidents . No implica- 
ti(xi existed that today's stu- 
dents are more reflned than 
the scholars of yester-year. I 
assun^ the reader would in- 
fer quite the opposite. 
Concerning the physical 
beauty of the DVC campus, I 
do not doubt that your gen- 
eration respect^ the grounds. 
However, the students attend- 
ing DVC today have not pre- 
served the attitudes and prac- 
tices you expressed. 
Thank you for your concern,

Vandalism; Who is 

Dear Editor: 

In Response to the article 
in the March 1 1th edition of 
the Ram Pages titled "Del- 
Val Vandalism: Problem or 
Way of Life?". 
I find the person who wrote 
this article to be very naive, 
and immature. If the author 
thinks that only those people 
from urban communities 
commit acts of vandalism 
she is sadly mistaken. Obvi- 
ously from the context of 
the editorial the author is 
from a rural area. 

Acts of vandalism are 
committed in all areas, ru- 
ral, suburban, and urban. As 
a police dispatcher I know 
this to be fact. 

Most of these acts of van- 
dalism that are conunitted 
can be alleviated by resi- 
dents of each dorm "polic- 

ing" their residence halls. If 
you see someone doing these 
things, tell them to stop. If 
they do not stop, call Secu- 
rity. We will hold the per- 
son who did the damage re- 
sponsible and they alone will 
pay for the cost of the repair. 
Do not be afraid to get in- 
volved and to tell Security 
who did the damage. If you 
do not tell them the whole 
dorm will be held liable for 
the damages. 

Look at it this way, if son«- 
one came to your house and 
started to destroy your prop- 
erty wouldn't you call the 
police and tell them who did 
it? Security caOJlfll be ev- 
erywhere on campus all the 
time. Help Security to help 
you and "get involved". 

-Officer R. Miozzi 

Officer Miozzi: 

Yes, I did, in fact, "grow- 
up" in a rural community. I 
realize that vandalism oc- 
curs everywhere. However, 
in my estimation, based on 
the review of security inci- 
dent reports, the majority of 
vandalizing acts on campus 
involve urban individuals. 

The remainder of your let- 
ter simply restated the con- 
cepts, for combatting the 
problem, that I had already 
outlined. In the future, re- 
member to consider editori- 
als for what they are-o^ii- 

Another note : Directly 
insulting an individuals' ma- 
turity, wisdom, andXor 
judgement, simply shows 
lack of maturity and poor 
judgement on the part of the

increase within the last two 
years in the spread of HIV/

Students Climb to Benefit AIDS 

Compiled by Mame Sugarman 

A nine-member team of Prin- 
ceton University students will 
climb Mt. McKinley in June to 
raise a minimum of $250,000 
for AIDS research and educa- 
tion. They hope to call atten- 
tion to the arresting statistics, 
AIDS has increased by 62 % in 
two years among 13-24 yestf 

The students will begin their 
historic climb in mid- June. The 
ascent is expected to las ap- 
proximately 30 days. 

"Mt. McKinley is the tallest 
peak in N(Hth America, and 
climbing it symbolizes the chal- 
lenge of conquering AlDS,"ex- 
plained Friedman. "We are 
making this climb not only to 
raise funds for AIDS research 
and education, but also to let 
people our age know that AIDS 
is a serious problem. We want 
our peers to realize that there 
are many creative ways to help 
combat the problem. Climbing 
Mt. McKinley is just one of 
those ways." 

Climb For the Cure has al- 
ready raised more than 
$150,000. Twomajor contribu- 
tors include Time Warner, Inc. 
and The Equitable Foundation, 
which each donated $25,000 at 
a kick-off luncheon held in New 
York during 1992. "The Equi- 
table is always eager to support 
the efforts of people coming 
together for a worthwhile 
cause," noted Kay Carlson. 
President of the Equitable 
Foundation. "We saw this 
project as an effective way to 
heighten awareness about 
AIDS among college students 
while also raising money for 

Dr. Mathilde Krim. 
AmFAR 's Chairman, said the 
nine students undertaking the 
climb "represent what is the 
very best about this counuy, 
once again demonsU'ating the 
universal and eternal spirit of 
youth. Their compassion and 
leadership are admirable." 

AIDS Fact Sheet 

As of July, 1992 the World Health Organization (WHO) 
estimated that 2.5 million people have had AIDS, includ- 
ing 1/2 million children. 

13 million people world-wide are infected with HIV, the 
virus that causes AIDS; 40% of those infected are female 
and 1 million are children. 

By the year 2000, WHO estimates that 40 million people 
world-wide will be infected with HIV. The Harvard 
AIDS Institute calls this estimate conservative, believing 
there will be 100 million cases by 2000. 

As of January, 1992 WHO estimates that 71 % of all HIV- 
infected people were exposed to the virus through het- 
erosexual sex. Over the next 5*10 years, WHO estimates 
that women will make up the majority of new infection 

152,153 Americans have died of AIDS as of June, 1992; 
exceeding the total deaths in Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, 
Panama, and the Gulf War combined. The CDC esti- 
mates as many as 340,000 Americans will die of AIDS- 
related causes by the end of 1993. 

AIDS is the second leading cause of death among men 25- 
44 years old, second only to injuries, and greater than 
heart disease, cancer and homicide. 

White Americans account for 55% of all adult cases; 
African Americans account for 28%; Latino Americans, 

In the United States, the median survival for people 
diagnosed after 1987 and receiving AZT, is 770 days. 
For those not receiving AZT, median survival is 140 
days after diagnoses.

UnfortuiuUely, I did not have 
the pleasure, like others, of know- 
ing the "Real Fulcoly'*. Like many 
other freshman, my first experi- 
ence with him at Add/Drop was 
quite scary. I spoke with the idc- 
ulty, staff, and students who 
w(Hted with him, said that was 
just one image he portrayed. Deep 
down inside, he was a big teddy 
l)ear who would bend over back- 
wards to help out any studoit. As 
I talked to more and more people. 
I began to see Mr. Fulcoly in a 
whole new light. The following is 
some insight into the Mr. Fulcoly 
some people never got to know 
After he^ng the memories of his 
friends, I feel like T ve known Mr. 
Fulcoly forever, I hc^ you'll feel 
the same way too!! 

"The day I started. Joe didn t 
know. He walked by the office 
and said, 'What are you doing 
here?' Apparently, he forgot what 
day I was starting. All I thought to 
myself was, (A what am I getting 
myself into??" - Betsy Arrison 
(BA) "He comes off as a grizzly 
bear, but he was really a teddy 
bear. After the first meeting, once 
students were in tho'e (his offices) 
and saw he was a big teddy bear 
they coukln*t stay away. He was 
easy to talk to once you got to 
know him." - Fran Rissi -(FR) 
"He would stop anything he was

doing to help a student, he didn't 
make people wait." -Susan Pa- 
chuta (SP) "Mr. Futeoly was 
student oriented. He'd go out on 
six limbs for a student if need be. 
He'd biKk tlK system if it was 
necessary"-Betsy Arrison. "No 
matter what needs were, personal 
or £u:ademic, if he would've." 
-Bob Sauers (BS) "Joe could

you asked him without looking it 
up. He made sure he was fair 
with students - Frank Wolfgang.

Mr. Fulcoly as a Boss and 

"It's a rare person who could 
allow you to be yourself. Joe 
could do that." -(SP) "He was an 
easy boss- he gave freedom, al- 
lowed each to use creativity to 
potential. He didn't hover and 
check to see if you were doing all 
right It was an acknowledgment 
and respect for what people had 
to offer diat made him a great 
boss." -(BA) "Joe always sup- 
ported ACT 101 program and its 
staff. We will miss him profes- 
sionally and personally''-Karen 
Kay "Joe taught me there was 
more than om way to commu- 
nicate. He made me feel re- 
laxed and enable people to be 
themselves. He was not aeon- 

trolling person. He didn't try 
to control me, or anyone. 
That's admirable in this hun- 
gry world." -(SP) "He was a 
boss and a friend." -(FR) 
Mr. Fulcoly's Favorite 

"Family was number one, and 
DVC was number two in his life." 
-(B.S) "He was a very tight fam- 
ily man. He su(^x)rted his family 
in everything. He was a close 
family man. His life was DVC, 
hunting, fishing, his family. He 
was an institution here." -(FW) 
"Monday through Friday's and 
on the weekend fishing and hunt- 
ing trips, we always talked about 
the college. It was always there." 
-(BS) "He was involved in a lot. 
Annual Events, sta^ Christmas 
Party, codcouts in the sununer 
and of coune A-day." -(FW) 
A-Day Advisor 
The A-Day committee celebrates 
the life of Mr. Fulcoly by being 
die best we can be. He was not 
(Hily our Advisor but someone 
who show^ us through his dedi- 
cation and hard woit die true 
meaning of giving more than you 
r^eive. He also taught us to take 
pride in our accomplishments. 

The A-Day committee feels 
very fwtunate to have been asso- 
ciated with Mr. Fulcolv. He left 
all of us better than we wo-e when 
he found us."- The A-Day Cwn- 


Mr. Fulcoly was constantly talk- 
ing about A-Day. He was really 
enthusiasts about it. I did attend 
my first A-Day meeting by going 
to tile meeting and seeing tiie 
excitement and enthusiasm of the 
students, it encourages me to see 
this. A-Day was his showcase of 
the college to him. It showed off 
everything. Witiiin tiuee years he 
took tiie program, put it on a 
strong footing (ot all the clubs of 
the college. The clute really ben- 
efit frcHn all tiie monies raised. I 
understand why he enjoys w(xk- 
ing- tiie attitude is refreshing, - 
refreshing to see tiiis part of ttie 
college and woric witii it. I'll try 
to carry out wh^ he would have 
wanted doiK. It's so well orga- 
nized alre^y tiiough, by tiie stu- 
dents and Mr. Fukoly, tiiere's not 
too much work to be done."-(BS) 
About Mr. Fulcoly 

"He was always a leader and 
frioid. He put in a lot of ser- 
vice. He was always tiiere. He 
had an open door policy." 
-MattC!heeseman "Forme, he 
was adear friend, a great hunter 
and fisheiman. He was very 
bright, he remembered every- 
thing, he was very kiwwledge- 
aWe and very aware." -(FW) 
"He was neally su{^itive and 
a wonderful man. We will 
miss him." -ACT 101. "He 

was very special. Iftiienewas 
magic to be made, l^'d do it. 
Sometu}w he'd make it work." 
-(BA) "He was friendly and 
easy to ^roach. He was many 
things to many people." -(FR) 
Final Comments 

"Segal was his building. He's 
everywhere. Segal has lost a fa- 
tiier. I'm feeling a tremendous 
void. E^)ecially right now." 
-(BA) "There's a big void in my 
life. The biggest loss is for die 
stuitents. In all tiie tilings be did, 
he took tiie idea of tiie students 
first." -(BS) "It's hard to believe 
in a Del Val College witiiout him. 
He loved tiiis coUege." -(FW) 

Out of all tiie stOTies and com- 
ments I heard about Mr. Fulcoly I 
tiiink my favmte is tiie story told 
by Mr. Sauer. "What I miss a lot 
is tiiat he used to at on tiie stoop 
in front of Segal and I used to 
tease him about it. 'Why not go 
into your office' and he said 'If I 
sit on tiie sVoop, I'll see more 
stuctents and accomplish more 
than sitting behind a desk. It's a 
different - better interaction." 
That story told me a great deal 
about tiie kind of person Mr. Ful- 
coly was in life. And in knowing 
tiiat, I firmly believe tiiat he is 
sitting on tiie edge of tiiose big 
fluffy clouds in the sky carefully 
watching his children of Dela- 
ware Valley College.

Master planning: Meeting community's needs 

By ChrU Albin 

Staff Writer 

The area around David Levin 
Dining Hail wiU soon be trans- 
fonned into a couityard, sur- 
rounded by a forcst-like land- 

Doug Kane, assistant profes- 
sor in the environmental de- 
sign department, said the pro- 
posed Georgian Dining Hall 
Courtyard will "create an at- 
mosphere which is very attrac- 
tive, requires low maintenance, 
and is developed from lasting 

According to Kane, the "ugly 
circular driveway" will be re- 
moved from the front of the 
building, and a large trellis will 

be erected to outline the main 
entrance of the Dining Hall. A 
fountain will be installed to serve 
as a focal point of the sitting 
area in the courtyard. Georgian 
style cast iron lights will pro- 
vide a well illuminated walk- 
way for pede^rians at night. 
Large plantings will be under- 
taken to hide the fire escape on 
the side of Miller Hall. Kane 
notes that "improved appear- 
ance does not mean (ioing away 
with safety." The entire land- 
scape encompassing the Dining 
Hall will heavily emphasise 
planting. He said that one of die 
primary goals is "to minimize 
paving and maximize planting."

Asst. Photo Editor 

On Wednesday, April 14th, 
1993. Delaware Valley College 

(DVC) celebrated its annusd 
Founder's Day. To begin the 
ceremony. Chairman of the DVC 
Board of Trustees Arlhur 
Poley('54) introduce keynote 
speaker Mr. Gerard Marini('52). 
Mr. Marini's speech brought to 
light many facets of DVC his- 
tory. Included in the speech was 
an account of DVC founder Dr. 
Joseph Krauskopfs journey to 
Russia in 1894. He proposed a 
plan to Czar Nicholas that might 
end or lessen the persecution of 
Jews in Russia. While in Russia, 
Dr. Kiauskopf met many promi- 
nent people, the one who was to 
most influence the life of the 
Rabbi was Count Leo Tolstoy. 

In 1896, I^. Krauskopf pur- 
chased a 122 acre farm near 
founded the National Farm 

The buildings present at the 
time consisted of a homestead 
and a s|ninghouK. The house 
became the Dean's residoice; 
the ^inghouse was remodeled 
and implemented as a dairy and 
bam. By 1922, rtipre were over 
eight buildings on omi^nb. The 
schocri also held title to two 
farms, purchased «4 donned 

in 1906 by Max Schoenfeld of 
New Yoric. 

On June 12th, 1923, Dr. Kraus- 
kopf died. Many feared that the 
school would collapse. Fortu- 
nately, Dr. Krauskqpf had planned 
well. He surrounded himself with 
men who understood his mission, 
men who were inspired by his 
spirit and intent. 

Today, 97 years after its found- 
ing, DVC continues in the tradi- 
tion of the National Farm School, 
educating students in the ways of 
agriculture.floriculturc, ornamen- 
tal honiculture, chemistry, botany, 
dairy farming, and numerous ad- 
ditional educational curricula. 
Food Science, Computer Infor- 
mation Systems Management, 
Business, and Secondary Educa- 
tion are among DVC's newest 

Following Founder's Day cus- 
tom, aw^uxls were |»%sented to 
outstanding students and faculty 
members. The Founder's Day 
Award was presented to Pam 
Blodgett and Michael Ward. Staff 
Member of the Year was aw^xled 
to Kfas. ComeO. Hie I^stinguished 
Faculty Award went to Mr. Por- 
ter, and Christina N. Ifoleman 
received the W.W. Smith Prize. 
In addition, numerous 20 Year

Dr, Mertz 

By Jenn Misko 

Staff Writer 

Dr. John Mertz is a professor 
Df biology. But what many 
don't know is that he is also a 
Del Val alumnus. He gradu- 
ated from Del Val in 1962 with 
i bachelor of science in biol- 

ogy. He then went on to con- 
tinue his studies at the Univer- 
sity of Illinois in zoology and 
did his post doctoral woiic in 
Holland studying reproductive 
behavior in fish. 

Dr. Mertz specifically com- 
mented on how well prepared 
he was for graduate school from 

Delaware Valley College, a 
compliment the school still gets 
today from its graduates. 

Dr. Mertz is manied to Mar- 
garet, and has three children, 
John, June, and Kathleen. He 
is an avid gardener and dabbler 
in the arts. In fact, his office is 
adorned with some of his mag- 
nificent oil paintings. 

He enjoys being at Del Val 
immensely and has held ad- 
ministrative as well as teach- 
ing positions here at the col- 
lege. Dr. Mertz f^ls that the 
Del Val student is special be- 
cause almost all seem to be 
well focused and have an ex- 
cellent woric ethic. 

He has recently taken on a 
iKw venture with the Animal 
Science Dept. Dr. Mertz wiU 
be teaching the Small Animal 
Ethology course now required 
by Small Animal Science ma- 
jors. Dr. Mertz f^ls that 
breaking down departmental 
barriers is important to devel- 
oping a healthy, well rounded 

He advises us to always 
"keep an open mind as to what 
the future might hold for you! 
We like to think that we plan 
our life out, but the key to 
success is to keep your mind 
open to all possibilities."

to protect the students here at 
DVC and the campus itself, 
or are they really a bunch of 
"Keystone Cops?" 

All members of Security un- 
dergo a training session at 
Bucks County Police Train- 
ing Center, and complete the 
same training procedures as a 
police cadet. This course is 
made up mostly of in-class 
bookwork, taught by police 
officers and certified instruc- 
tors. C.P.R. and First Aid are 
mandatory courses for all Se- 
curity members. They also 
attend courses offered at local 
colleges and police stations 
on topics such as date rape, 
and ethnic diversity. 

Beyond the training they 
get from the college, many 
members of Security bring 
along training they underwent* 
before their employment at 
DVC. One example of this is 
Officer Mozzi's Combat 
Medic training, which allows 
him to deal with injuries more 
serious than is usually cov- 
ered in a First Aid class. 

Another example of this ex- 
tra training is Mr. Lies, DVC's 
Fire Marshal. He has served 
on both the U.S.S. Enterprise 
and the U.S.S. Saratoga on 
the crash and salvage teams. 
He also teaches R.A.s and 
faculty on proper use of fire 
extinguishers, and runs an- 
nounced and un-aimounced 
fire drills in the dorms. 

Lt. Marable brought along 
his training in the following 

areas: crime prevention, ethnic 
intimidation, rape investiga- 
tion, and burglary-theft inves- 

But all the training in tt% 
worid does not make a good 
Security Officer. All officers 
must show an ability to com- 
municate well with others, and 
be able to keep their cool in a 
hazardous or hostile situation 
so it does not become worse. 
And in those cases where only 

a woman could uncterstand, 
there is at least one female 
officer on 24 hours a dav, 
seven days a week. 

Although to some people 
Security may seem like agroup 
of "Keystone Cops", they are 
actually a well trained group of 
professionals doing their jobs. 
They are not as inefficient as 
some people mistake them for, 
but rather, a unique branch of 
DVC service.

Administration expresses 
concern on campus violence 

To the Editor: 

This letter reflects a double 
reaction on my part, first to the 
Ram Pages editorial policy as 
reflected in the publication of 
the letter on campus assaults in 
the April 8 issue, and second, 
to the College's very real con- 
cern for violence which mi^t 
be comm itted against any of its 

Let me deal with the edito- 
rial policy first. 

The letter mentioned above 
paints a broad, generalized pic- 
ture which, 1 believe, does not 
accurately represent this Col- 
lege or its students. Publishing 
such a letter may, in fact, anger 
students, polarize opinion, and 
have a "re-victimizing" effect 
upon the writer of die letter. 
The headline, charging the 
College witti "wearing blind- 
ers" is misleading when exam- 
ined in light of the facts. The 
fact is, no rapes, during tt^ 
cuircnt year, have been report^ 
to the College. The headline 
compounds the frustration of 
administrators, faculty, and 
staff who are concerned about 
violeiKe in any form and who 
will respond if informed. The 
writer of the letter is under- 
standably emotional about her 
personal experience. If the 
editors felt the letter needed to 
be published, they should have 
provided a more balanced fo- 
rum by writing an accurate 
he^ine and checking emo- 
tional and generalized state- 
ments in the letter. 

Second, let me move on to 

the more important issue here. 
Delaware Valley College is a 
learning community regulated 
by the laws of Pennsylvania, 
the regulations of the College 
and our own irKlividual deci- 
sions about how we treat each 
other. It is difflcult to imagine 
an effective learning commu- 
nity which tolerates violence 
or abuse in any form against 
any of its members. The level 
of violence and abuse is in- 
creasing in our society and that 
violence is too often directed 
against women. Our campus is 
not exempt from that which 
affects society in general. 

We do all we can to provide 
a safe environment at DVC, 
while, at the same time, pre- 
serving an a{^ropriate amount 
of freedom forthe young adults 
who live on campus. It is not 
always easy to identify where 
the line should be dravm be- 
tween safety and intrusion. As 
reiterated in residence hall pro- 
grams on date rape, all-college 
presentations by law enforce- 
ment officials, and new stu- 
dent orientation: all men and 
women on this campus have a 
responsibility to examine their 
actions ana tne consequeiKcs 
of those actions. The message, 
reduced to simplest form is the 
following. When she says "no," 
she means "no." Anything that 
happens after "no" is consid- 
ered, by law, to be rape. Women 
must communicate clearly and 
without "mixed signals." Al- 
cohol consumption reduces the 
ability of both men and women 

tomake good judgements. The 
consequences of bad judge- 
ment can last a lifetime. 

As set out in the handbook, 
the College has specific proce- 
dures for reporting assault in- 
cidents. These procedures di- 
rect students to a variety of 
contacts including counselors, 
residence and student li fe staff, 
and two sexual harassment om- 
budspersons. Students who re- 
port incidents are treated with 
confidentiality, but are also en- 
couraged to make police re- 
ports so that die law can be 
enforced no matter who the 
perpetrator is. 

Policies and procedures for 
dealing with offenders arc very 
important. But perhaps even 
more important are the actions 
of all concerned students, both 
men and women, who are will- 
ing to pressure peer behavior 
and cleariy indicate, by word 
and example, date rape is not 
o.k. , not sex, not cool , not proof 
of manhood. Date rape is a 

This College does not "wear 
blinders" where assaults are re- 
ported to have occurred. The 
majority of DVC students do 
not condone and will not toler- 
ate abusive behavior. Students, 
both men and women, are en- 
couraged to continue to make a 
difference by expressing their 
aWiorrence of such behavior 
and by coming forward so that 
concerns may be verified and

Dear Dr. Antheil, 

You are absolutely correct in 
voicing your concern about the 
headline of the letter to the 
editor concerning campus as- 
saults. It was a poor editorial 
decision to use the headline 
RAPE: College wears blind- 
ers. It was misleading in that it 
suggests the College ignores 
the campus assault problem, 
wl^n in reality the college has 
used every resource available 
and taken every opportunity to 
educate its students about per- 
sonal assaults. In the future we 
will do our best to represent the 
letters and articles we publish 
with appropriate headlines. 

We would like to continue 
by addressing your comment 
about our decision to publish 
the letter and its potential to 
" fact, anger students, po- 
larize opinion, and have a 're- 
victimizing' effect upon tJw 
writer..." You're ab^lutely 
right, in fact itmight, and prob- 

ably should, anger students; 
not because the College is not 
doing anything, but because it 
has done everything possible 
to address this issue. Perhajfe 
the students should become 
angry with themselves for al- 
lowing this type of crime to 
continue. If there are no re- 
ported offenses, how can the 
College take action or assist a 

As for polarizing opinions, 
we as students take offense to 
this comment. We are paying 
a great deal of money to attend 
this institution of higher edu- 
cation because we wish to ex- 
pand our knowledge and de- 
velop critical and objective 
thinking. Just because some- 
thing is written does not make 
it so. This is where an edu- 
cated person must make a deci- 
sion whether to believe all, part 
of, or iK)iK of what he/she has 
read. Usually, he/she would 
wei^ the facts as he/she knows 
them- in this case, the College's

Double standards 

memo of 2 April 1993, came 
as a surprise since it was ap- 
proved by the Student Park' 
ing(!;!omniittee. Not because 
vehicles are now prohibited 
jjom driving on secondary 
joad$. but because it is a 
double standard against stu- 
dents by students. 
a nile which should have been 
put into effect years ago. The 
njts and otherdamage caused 
by vehicles are unsightly and 
show a lack of school pride. 

The problem with the NO 
it should not be just for stu- 
dents. TTie damage in ques- 
tion is predominately caused 
by the campus service and 
security vehicles which arc 
still pem^itted to drive on 
t|)|$e paths. Not only is the 
dinilge unsightly, but so are 
the trash and other service 
vehicles that are commonly 
patked in these pathways. If 
this was a matter of pride and 
appearance it only makes 
sense thai we would want to 
keep all large vehicles off 
these secondary roads and 

Why do the service people 
need full sized vehicles to 
perform the ir duties of fixing 
dorms and gathering trash? 
There arc vehicles, very simi- 
lar to golf carls, which are 
made specifically for travel- 
ing on pedestrian pathways 
soservicescanbe perforaied. 
Not only are trailers and other 
accessaries available, but 
these service vehicles arequi- 
eter and fuel efficient. In 
addition, it would be much 
safer forpedestrians if slower 
and smaller service vehicles 
were the only motorized ve- 

bicics pentjitted on pedes- 

Since the cost f^or isnatu- 
rally going to come to bour 
concerning the purchasingof 
such jKfvice vehicles, a few 
suggestions are offered. 

Peihaps the College could 
sell one or two of the large 
vehicles and use tiie proceeds 
to purchase smaller service 
vehicles. This saving in in- 
surance and rcgistraiicm fees 
per year would probably 
amaze us alL Another sag* 
gestion IS forthe Student Gov- 
emment, along with other or- 
ganizations md clubs, to as- 
sist the College in raising 
money to purcha^ these ser- 
vice vehicles for the bctter- 
mentpf ourcotnmunity. One 
source might be some of the 
A»Day proceeds. Afinal sug- 
gestion would be for the 
service vehicles donated or 
purchased by a friend of the 
college. Many of the Board 
members arc agriculttirally 
oriented and {HDbaWy have 
connections with peoj^ in 
ite itKlusti^ who produce or 
sell these very types of ve- 

Regardless of what the 
problem is or what the solu- 
tionmay be, itis not right for 
the College to blame students 
for damage that is predomi- 
nately caused by College ve- 

The fact that student lead- 
ers contributed to this one- 
sided rule is a matter of con- 
cern. Aren'ithestudentleadr 
ers supposed to be looking 
out for the student body's 
welfare; instead of cooperat- 
ing with the College to im- 
pose btas«d restrictions on 

program, against the informa- 
tion which has been offered, 
the opinion letter. It is fright- 
ening to us that the College is 
worried about what conclusions 
its students may draw thinking 
for themselves. 

As editors we are offended 
by your insinuation that we, as 
the student voice, would posi- 
tion our newspaper in a light 
that it is not representative of 
valid student concerns. Every 
issue we address is done with 
consideration of student inter- 
est or concern. 

Finally, addressing the re- 
victimizing effect? his a good 
thing your response is on the 
Opinion page. First of all, the 
letter is anopinion whichmeans 
few facts can, or r^ed to, be 
substantiated. far 

as being re-victimized, she is a 
consenting and responsible 
young adult and should be well 
aware of the scrutiny she has 
subjected herself to through 
submission of her letter to the 
College newspaper. We can 
not condone nor dispute her 
opinion. However, since it is 
an opinion about a topic which 
we, as well as others, feel 
strongly, we feel we were jus- 
tified in publishing it 

To clarify a position of the 
Editors-In-Chief of Ram Pages, 
we believe controversy is 
healthy, providing it stimulates 
thought, reasoning, and dis- 
cussion. If our publication of 
the aforementioned letter has 
offended, we iy)ologize. It was 
our intention to address a moral 
issue of our community. 





student serious about rape issue 

Dear Editor: 

In response to the editorial 
opinion from the April 8 , 1 993 
Ram Pages entitled - Rape: 
College Wears Blinders. First, 
let me say that rape and any 
form of harassment or abuse is 
the most terrible offense any 
human being could commit I 
knew a giri friend who was 
raped while I was going out 
with her. ANYONE who has 
been assaulted should seek 
counse ling. There are fine ser- 
vicesd(fered right here on cam- 
egai Hall or you can 
call a^rape help line (numbers 
in the phone book). Follow 
through with legal actions i f at 
all possible to stop it from 
happening to aiK)ther and let 
the campus see that there is a 

My problem with the article 
is the actual presentation of 
the writers concern. 

1. Have you tried to get help 
from counseling? If so have 
you tried to seek legal action? 

2. Why is the title - Rape: 
College Wears Blinders not 
stated as a question? I do not 
think this is a true statement. 
The college has programs to 
educate students. 

3. Read the following state- 

A."One in seven women 
now in college have been 
raped", (Wall Street Journal, 
June 27, 1992). This state- 
ment was cited in the intro- 
duction to Safe Campuses for 
W(Mnen bill brought before the 
Senate Judiciary Committee 
by 26 bipartisan Senators, June 
of last year. 
B. "Data gathered by the Bu- 

reau of Justice Statistics held a 
survey whidi reported that only 
1 woman in 1,000 is rap«l." 
(Wall Street Journal) Which 
set ofdata is correct? 

A. 1 in 7 (15%) raped. 

B.l in 1,000 (.001%) raped. 
They are both officially cor- 
rect. What is wrong is percep- 
tion. Anyone can mislead a 
consumer in their direction if 
not presenting all the facts. 
The total facts in these cases 
are the following: 

A. This figure. 15%. "a 
widely cited fact of rape on 
college campuses is derived 
from a 1 985 survey conducted 
under auspices of Ms. Maga- 
zine. When asked 73% of 
those participating in that sur- 
vey did not feel they had been 
raped. Also, 40% of these 
women reported having sex 
again with the men who sup- 
posedly raped them." (Wall 
Street Journal) 

B. This figure, .001%, is 
"Probably slightly underesti- 
mating the problem for women 
in a college atmosphere." 
(Wall Street Journal) 

If we do not see all the facts, 
we will begin to believe the 
story based on what was pre- 
sented. I do not believe these 
allegations, where are all her 
facts to support this article? 
The writer has made state- 
ments that will make every 
giri (and some men) on cam- 
pus shudder in fear whenever 
they arc alone witfi "their clos- 
est friends" or "taking simple 
walks around the DVC cam- 
pus." 1 believe we should in- 
crease awareness not produce 
another "red scare". 

4. "I don't care what people 
say anymore, because all 1 
know is that what happened to 

me was not my fault ... Women 
at our college are putting their 
lives on the liite every time they 
unlock doors and walk outside 
ofourdorms." This shows pure 
paranoia. Where is this "atmo- 
Sf^re of fear and absolute ter- 
rors?" Get real! Wherever you 
are able to deal with your feel- 
ings you can start to help "ad- 
dress and educate students, fac- 
ulty, and staff here at DVC" 
with a better program than al- 
ready provided. 

5. Where are all these "numbers 
of rapes happening on campus 
that is unbelievable?" There 
was not one case of rape re- 
ported at DVC last year. 
(Chronicle of Higher Education, 
Nov. 1992) 

6. How can you be "appalled at 
the lack of concern for women 
on this campus . . . and a Security 
force not effective to stop crime 
occurring on this campus ... 
Steps need to be tak^ in the 
future to help insure the safety 
of the women on campus?" 
Where are your ideas? Miat is 
not being done now? 

Your Security Department has 
concern for all people on the 
D V<^«o«mpus not just women. 
At the beginning of the fresh- 
man year it is required that ev- 
eryone attend a date rape semi- 

There are Resident Assistants 
and Community Coordinators 
in each building to aid you in 
any way. If you call Security I 
am sure they would be hai^y to 
take you across campus to your 

POPS (Power of Positive Stu- 
dents) has in the works with 
Security an escort service for 
next year. For more informa- 
tion contact Don Marable at 

Security. This being another 
example of our Security offic- 
ers using their own time to 
help DVC students. 

7. "Our worst enemies - are 
some of our closest friends - 
the men (boys) of DVC." 45% 
of those 1 in 7 women raped in 
a 4 year college span were 
raped by an acquaintance. 
(Wall Street Journal) Does 
this mean all your friends are 
hazards? Of course not. What 
it does mean is to be careful 
not U) allow certain situations 
to occur. Use your common 
sense, think ahead. 

8. "Values of men at this cam- 
pus are for the most part are 
nonexistent". As a male I am 
mad at this iurcusation. I am 
glad you can recognize good 
values in everyone. And of 
course your idea of values are 
those universally excepted 
ones that everyone knows and 
lives by, right? 

9. Your point of "coming to 
DVC to learn about your field 
of study" is irrelevant to the 
concern. We are all here for 
the same goal. As far as your 
problems in the first year, seek 
counseling. We all have had 
hard time adjusting to college 
life our first year. 

10. "Increase the standard of 
the people who are allowed to 
attend this college. Tt^more 
unruly people are the same 
ones who caused problems in 
their hi^ schools." 

Because you were unmly in 
high school means you will 
conmiit rape? You know for a 
fact that they were huge prob- 
lems in High School? Where 
are your facts? Is it possible 

that people could mature from 
High School to College? Why 
is it that the police wipe your 
records clean at 18 years old 
but DVC docs not. What stan- 
dards would be set? And are 
those standards right? 

I do not know about the gen- 
eral population of DVC tMit as 
a student. I am offen(ted that 
this person has put down our 
school, us, and herself. We all 
chose DVC! Instead of criti- 
cizing why not help the ones 
trying to make DVC better? I 
think Security, Admissions, 
Residence Life, and all of our 
Administration deserve a big 
pat on the back for an out- 
standing job done. THANK 
YOU! There is an accefMed 
method to getting things no- 
ticed and addressed in society. 
That method does not have 
accusations, but solutions. Get 
involved and do something 
about it, make the difference 
the right way, actions speak 
louder than words!

Security addresses rape issue 

Dear Editor: 

In response to the article in 
the last Ram Pages on rape, 
"College Wears Blinders", and 
the statement that Security 
should have an effective force 
that actually attempts to stop 
the crime of rape, no law en- 
forcement agency can be at the 
scene of a rape unless it hap- 
pens in front of them. For any 
action to be taken, the crime 

must be repotted- 

The subject of sexual ha- 
rassment on campus has been 
addressed. Tlie Security Dept., 
in conjunction with the Stu- 

dent Life Office, has conducted 
six (6) rape seminars, and will 
continue to present these in- 
formational, educational pro- 
grams to large and small 
groups on campus. Guest 
speakers at these seminars have 
included Chief Sempowski, 
New Britain Borough P.D.; 
Ms. Julie Bean from NOVA, 
Deputy District Attorney Gary 
Gambnulella from the Bucks 
Co. D.A.'s Office, and other 
professionals. To further en- 
hance tlu safety of students on 
campus crime prevention of- 
ficer have conducted semi- 
nars on self-defense. 

Addressing the comment of 
the fear and terror on campus, 
Security has, and will continue 
to provide escort service to any 
student on request. Also 
P.O.P.S. is curroitly working 
on providing escort service in 
conjunaion with Security. 

No one asks to be a victim of 
rape, no one is responsible for 
someoneelse'sbehavior. Blam- 
ing the victim is based on the 
myth that rape is nothing more 
than sex. Many victims fear for 
their lives, they believe they 
may be kilied or severely in- 
jured. TlK fact is anyone can be 
a victim of rape. Statistics show 

thatover 80% of rt^)es are com- 
mitted by someoiK the victim 
knows. A n^ occurs every 6 
minutes in the U.S., according 
to the F.B.I. Some data sug- 
gests that more than 80% of 
rapes are never reported to the 
police. Also remember, it's 
the victim's choice to fight 
back or to give in. Under some 
circumstances giving in may 
be necessary to preserve your

Police Chief offers College advice 

Dear Editor: 

It has come to my attention 
that there is a rape victim on 
campus who felt she must infonn 
other women thiU these types of 
inci(tents occur on the campus of 
D.V.C. This was commendable 
in that she put the women of 
D.V.C. on guard to the reality that 
this does occur, but she may also 
be allowing it to continue by re- 
maining anonymous. I would ask 
that she come forward and report 
this to the appropriate police de- 
partment so we may start an in- 
vestigation. New Britain Boro 
Police. 345-1080. Doylestown 
TWP. Police 348-4200. I would 
also like to clev up some miscon- 
ceptions that the young lady's let- 
ter related. 

First, I wish to assure everyone 
that security peRonnel on cam- 
pus are sympathetic, and do wish 
to assist in any response in this 
area. To this end they have 
conducted seminars on campus to 
ivevent this firom occurring and 
to make students aware of its 
possibility. I have been an active 
participant in these seminars as 
well as the Network of Victims 

nease do not report offenses to 
the Student Life department after 
hours, they are mly open Mon- 
day-Friday 8 to 4, iMit rather im- 
mediately contact security who 
will contact the police (x you may 
call dir»:tly to the police depart- 
ment. Every stu(tent has the right 
to contact the local police depart- 
ments if they feel it is necessary in 
any situation. Please remember 
the91 1 system is in place in Bucks 
County. Please do not delay in 
calling. The quicker the contact 
the better the chance in prosecu- 

Another issue to address is the 
woman's belief that a better class 
of men on campus through proper 
screening of High School r»X)rds 
would put a stqp to this. Unfortu- 
nately any type of man is capable 
of this horrendous action; it 
crosses all cultural, r^ial and 
social boundaries. 
Also consider that in the major- 
ity of rapes committed, the victim 
knows her assailant, date rape is 
unfortunately a regular occur- 

Also alcohol is a factw in a 
great dealof occurrences, becare- 

ful of the amount you inge^ to 
insure you can defend yourself 
and to have all your faculties to- 
gether to pick up on signs that 
something may be about to occur. 
If going out on a date, advise 
friends and family members of 
your plans and attempt to stick 
with them. 1 . Determine the safest 
route of travel, (the shortest route 
may not be the safest) 2. Inform 
your family of destination, phone 
number at destination, expected 
time of arrival and return. 3. In- 
form the person whom you intend 
to visit, and your expect«l time of 
arrival.4. Carry proper change for 
phone or onergency use. If you 
are unfamiliar with your date stay 
in well populated, well lit areas. 
If alone, avoid daric doorways, 
hallways or parking lots and areas 
that are heavily overgrown with 
trees, shrubs, and weeds. Do not 
go down alleys or little-traveled 
streets, stay out of deserted parks 
and wooded areas, vacant lots and 

Also, please do not leave your 
6xxm doors proi^ open or 
your room doors unlocked. 
Women on the 1st floor shouldnot 

leave their windows open or un- 
locked. These «nall measures of 
security can go a long way in 
preventing an attack. 

I know from speaking with 
both your security departmentand 
your Dean of Students Offlce that 
your campus is indeed concerned 
about this situation as well as the 
issue of sexual harassment. These 
situations must be reported so the 
appropriate actions can be taken. 

Please call immediately after 
an attack occurs so we may pr(^ 
eriy investigate the incident fully 
and quickly. Do not wash di- 
rectly after an attack, but report it 
so we may take you to the hospi- 
tal for an exam to give you the 
approiM-iate medical treaunent as 
well as gather the evidence needed 
to prosecute the offender. 

Lastly, no woman should have 
to endure ttte fear she possesses, 
and to that end the New Britain 
Boro Police Department is pre- 
pared to assist your campus in 
doing whatever needs to be done 
to prevent this terrible crime firom 
happening, and to investigate 
events to the fullest. 

Please report all incidrats to 

prevent another woman from be- 
ing a victim. Ifyou cannot talk to 
us through embarrassment or 
shame, please do not blame your- 
self. Seek professional assistance. 
I am enclosing some phone num- 
bers of agencies in our area that 
are available to assist you. This 
department also has pamphlets to 
hand out to any one interested in 
further information on preven- 
tion of attacks and victim refer-

The Eighth Wonder of the World 

By Tce-yee Poon 

Staff WriUr 

The eighth wonder of the world 
isn't found in any museum, it 
isn't found in nature. So where 
can this phenomena be found? It 
can be found on over 594 nuiio 
stations with alm(»t 16 million 
listeners per week. It can also be 
found on book shelves and on 
televisions all acn»s the fruited 
plaii». This phenomena that's 
sweeping the nation and is larger 
and growing faster than anyone in 
this great nation can ever imag- 
ine. What is this phenomena and 
where can it be found? This 
phenomena is Rush Limbaugh 
and 'The Rush Limbaugh Show" 
on the Excellence in Broadcast- 
ing Network (QB). Rush's EIB 
Network is based in New York 
City and in the New York areacan 
be found on 770 Am WABC but 
in the Philadelphia area his show 
can be found on96.5 FM WWDB. 
People who avidly listen to Rush 
are called "Dittoheads" because 
they agree with all or most of 
what this great man has to say. 

Who is Rush Limbaugh? Rush 
Limbaugh was bom in Capt Gi- 
rardeau. Missouri. He started out 
as a DJ at age 1 6, and later worked 
for the Kansas City Royals in 
1979. He was broke once and 

divorced twice, and in 1984 he 
hosted a talk show on KFBK in 
Sacramento California. Finally in 
1988 his big chance came when 
his show went nationally out of 
New York City. Rush Umbaugh 
unfortunately, bashed by many in 
the media because he tells his 
audience the truth about things 
the liberal media doesn't, also 
because he is conservative. Whoi 
someone calls "The Rush Lim- 
baugh Show"Rush treats them all 
with kindness and respect, even 
those who disagree call. Rush 
talks about the issues of the day, 
from "the arts and croissants 
crowd," "environmental wackos," 
"feminazis" to the "homeless jul- 
vocates," "multiculturalists,"and 
"Political Correctness." He is 
truly one of the greatest men of all 
time, and is a legend in his own 
time. Rush Limbaugh 's \x>ck 
The Way Things Ought To Be 
which presently has 2.5 million 
copies in (Mfint, and has spent close 
to 30 weeks on the New York 
Times Best-seller list. His televi- 
sion show is tied with Rosseane as 
the best show of the season. 

I have been listening to Rush 
for over a year and he is great; 
better and funnier than Howard 

Stem, Larry King, Jay Leno, Ar- 
senio Hall and David Letterman 
put together. Yes, I can proudly 
say that I have EIB. Your prob- 
ably wondering whsu EIB is. Rush 
describes EIB as "An airborne 
phenomena spread by casual con- 
tact. It's addictive, y^ harmless 
to health. There is no cure, nor is 
ttere a vaccine or inoculation. 
No rehab is necessary. The only 
treatment is a daily dose of my 
show. Many have tested Posi- 
tive." Rush is "The Epitome of 
Morality and virtue." He has 
been documented by an official 
opinion audit by the Sullivan 
Group to be correct 97.9% of the 
time, and he^ys "I say more in 
five seconds than most hosts do in 
a whole show." Your can't say 
that about crude Howard Stem, 
lame comedian Arsenio Hall and 
Jay Leno or liberal talk show host 
Larry King. Rush enjoys what he 
calls demonstrating the absurd by 
being absurd. Time magazine has 
dubbed Rush "Hie most danger- 
ous man in America." Why?... 
because te is right, and is having 
fun being right. As Rush says he 
is having mwe fun than one hu- 
man being should be sdlowed to 
have The only reason why peq)le 

dislike Rush is because of there 
fear of and ignorance of him. 
Wten Rush begins His three hour 
show ai 12:06 he starts with this 
opening: " Greeting convo^ion- 
alist all across the fruited plain, 
this is Ru^ Limbaugh, the most 
dangerous man in America, serv- 
ing humanity just by (^ning my 
mouth, doing this show with half 
my brain tied behind my back just 
to make it fair, with talent on loan 
from god." The only way to 
understand the esseiKre of Rudi 

and his show is to li^en to him for 
at least 6 weeks. Even those who 
disagree with Rush still listen, 
just to hear what he has to say. For 
example, Ted Koppel the liberal 
anchor on ABC's Nightline lis- 
tens to Rush even though he is at 
political odds with him. You 
could definitely say that Rush 
Limbaugh is definitely a phenom- 
ena that is sweeping the nation 
and is a legend in his own time. 
He truly is the eighth wonder of 
the world. 

AIDS claipis 
another victim 

Dear Editor, 

Last week, I got a letter from 
a friend back tome. It in- 
sisted of all the usual gossip, 
family aiKl friends, and also a 
piece of news that was both 
shocking and scary. You sec, 
there was this really great guy 
I kiKw in high school and ev- 
ery girl was out to "get him." 
Well, it turns out that one giii 
that he slept with had con- 
tracted the AIDS (HIV virus). 

"Fred" has just gotten mar- 
ried to a girl I graduated with 
and tl^y had a child. Now, 

they may all have AIDS. When 
I think of how close I was to 
becoming one of "Fred 's" girls, 
it scares me to death. Pieople 
just don't realize how serious a 
di%ase this is. If you insist on 
havingsex. please be protected. 
You don't want to reach into 
your box someday and receive 

a letter that says "Dear , 

Remember me? You arul I had 
sex three years ago. I now have 
AIDS." Please be careful!!

....Matt Gibson aids football team 

and college community 
By Kate Monahan 

Sports Writer 

As a young boy and through- 
out his adolescent years. Matt 
Gibson always dreamed of be- 
ing a football coach. However, 
he did not know that he would 
be appointed to a position be- 
fore he was finished with his 
own career as a college player. 
Matt starred as a defensive back 
at Juniata College, where he 
earned a number of honors and 
was respected both as a player, 
and most of all, a person. 

In March of his senior year at 
Juniata College, he was given 
the position of Defensive Coor- 
dinator at Delaware Valley Col- 
lege. In May, Matt graduated 
with a degree in Secondary Edu- 
cation with a minor in history. 

In this day and age there are 
not too many people who can 
graduate with a job and have the 
start of a future already planned. 
For this. Matt was thankful. 

Matt also knew he would love 
and enjoy his job very much. In 
Aueust of 1992 he beean work- 
ing diligently on plans for the 
summercamp which would take 
place at the end of August. Man 
has attended many football 
camps throughout his many 
years of playing football and 
now he was helping to run one. 
During the course of the year he 
had small administrative jobs, 
he broke down films, and formed 
scouting reports. Matt also does 
a lot of recruiting in the off- 
season, which is a big help to 
the football program at Del Val. 

When asked if he felt closer to 
the players because of his age, 
he responded, "Yes, I believe 
\h£ players feel very close to me 
because of my age." The play- 
ers of the football team clearly 
respect Matt, not only as a very 
good coach, but also as a friend 
ami leader. 

Matt enjoyed coaching every 
day of the Aggies' football sea- 
son, but one game stands out in 
his mind. After only graduating 
one year ago. Coach Gibson left 
friends and two roommates be- 
hind to continue their college 
careers in football at Juniata 

When it came time for Dela- 
ware Valley to play Juniata, there 
was something deeper for Matt. 
He commented, "I wanted our 
team to definitely beat Juniata, 
but in my heart I wanted to see 
my friends play well." 

Matt holds another title at 
Delaware Valley College; that 
of Community Coordinator in 
Ulman Dorm here on campus. 
This is another plus because it 
allows Matt to save money. As 
the CC of the dorm, you do not 
pay rent. Being the CC also 
allows him to interact and com- 
municate with the students and 

Matt is very thankftil to Coach 
Manlove, the head coach for the 
Delaware Valley College Ag- 
gies. Matt looks up to him and 
respects him very much. He 
feels honored to be able to woric 
with a man as great as Manlove. 
Matt feels that Coach Manlove 
possesses all of the qualities and 
characteristics that it takes to be 
a great coach and that is why he 
looks up to him. 

Matt is very happy with his 
life right now. It is easy to see 
when in Matt's presence that all 
of his talents and capabilities 
did not go to his head. This is 
why it is so nice to see a person 
like him doing what he likes 

Matt has goals set, and what 
he sets out to do he does. He 
owes this to his dedication and 
determination, and for this his 
dreams in life will always be 
within his grasp.

Coach Linda Fleischer along 
with the team is to hopeftilly 
increase the number of wins 
and to have a 500 season. 

Kelly Sciss is having a very 
good season aiKl as Coach 
Fleicher stated, "she is hitting 
well and is among the league

Drugs; are they a problem at DVC? 

By Michelle Slaybaugh 

News Editor 
As illegal drugs have pervaded 
American society, the Delaware 
Valley College (DVC) campus 
proves no exception. 

Recent action 

From a concern that illegal drug 
abuse is becoming an increasing 
problem on the DVC campus, the 
Office of Student Life sponsored 
an informational program fw Resi- 
dent Assistants (RA's), Commu- 
nity Coordinators (CC's), and oth- 
ers with high student contact. 
Agent John Smith from the Drug 
Enforcement Agency (DEA) con- 
ducted a comprehensive seminar 
about drugs, their effects, and 
warning signs, and ways of ad- 
dressing a mounting problem. 

The police were called to inves- 
tigate a possible drug related inci- 
(tent at Ulman Donn, third floor, 
on April 5. 1993. The incident 
involved an altercation between 
two male students. Since one 
student lives mi the New Britain 
Borough side of the campus and 
the ottur on the Doylestown side, 
both departments wctc called. Fol- 
lowing procedure, Doylestown 
brought a drug dog. No drugs 
were found in either individual's 
room. Oiw student was charged 
with disorderly conduct. Further 
information was unavailable. 

"Hltt" of LSD. posRioiMd on ■ 
familiar DVC drug Information 

Drugs and DVC 

The College's policy manual 
states: "Delaware Valley College 
will not tolerate any fonn of drug 
abuse (M* illegal drug distribution." 
Although it is rumored that drug 
use is a widespread problem at 
DVC, few incidents are recorded 
annually. Many look toward the 
College authorities to control drug 
use, but in reality, it is tremen- 
dously difficult for them to isolate 
and apprehend student drug users 
without infringing on other 
student's privacy. 

In order for the authorities to 
enter and search a students room, 
then must be "reasonable su^i- 
cion". This means they have rea- 
son to believe illegal drugs are 
present and/or are being used. 
Unless th^ actually see or smell 
these drugs their hands are viitu- 
ally ti^ Although marijuana is 
the easiest drug to detect I 

of its pungent odor, its smell is 
often camouflaged by the use of 
strong scents such as incense, 
room deodorants, burning or- 
ange-peels, and fatM'ic softener. 

Other drugs are not as easy to 
identify. There are no humanly 
detectable odws involved with 
snorting cocaine, shooting 
heroin, or drofi^ing acid. 

Many students who use drugs 
claim the effect that drugs have 
on them are easy to hide in social 
or classroom situations and in 
front of authorities. Asone fresh- 
man user explained. "If an RA 
comes in, or I'm around people 
who don 't do it (and are opposed 
to drug use), I can hide it. They 
generally don't have a clue." 

All incident reports and associ- 
ated substance and parapherna- 
lia acquired from a "bust" are 
turned in to the Office of Student 
Life. According to this office, it 
then becomes their duty to take 
the "iq^jrc^riiUe" ^tions. The 
Office of Student Life feels it is 
their duty to protect the mental 
and physical health of the stu- 
dents. They o^ier counseling and 
reprimands to students who are 
in offense of College policy. It 
appears DVC does all it can to 
prevent drug use. 

To pose a question fw critical 
thought, how will this type of 
action affect students lalo'in their 
lives when the Office of Student 
9 Life is not there to protect or 
counsel them? 

College students 
on drugs?! 

Drug abuse is defined as: "Us- 
ing natural and\or synthetic 
chemical substances for non- 
medical reasons to affect the 
body, mind and behavior." As 
persons supposedly seeking 
higher education, college stu- 
dents should be the most unlikely 
substance abusers. Conversely, 
college provides an excellent op- 
portunity for first-time users and 
a perfect environment to con- 
tinue habits formed in high 
school. A freshman reasoned, 
"There's so much around; People 
are curious. They want to know 
what they (drugs) will do to 
them." He added, "A lot more 
peq}le do it than anyone would 

"Everyone does drugs on this 
campus!" exclaimed one senior. 
Drugs are, in fact, illegal, but 
seem to be readily accessible for 
any DVC student who chooses to 
indulge. One DVC horticulture 
major stated, **Within one hour I 
could find you any drug you 
wanted somewhere on campus.** 

The magnitude of the DVC 
drug problem could not be accu- 
rately determined by the Ram 
Pages survey due to bck of re- 
sponse. HowevCT, it did indicate 
thepresenceof: marijuana, LSD, 
(hallucinogenic) mushrooms,co* 
caine. crack, heroin, nitrous ox- 
ide. PGP, aad various inhalant 

users on campus. According toan 
AE major, "There are ions of pot, 
pretty many (hallucinogenic) 
mushrooms, and a lot of acid. 
Other, harder drugs, like coke, 
are here, but it's much quieter." 
Another individual estimated, "If 

ing the "positive" side of hemp, 
marijuana provides excellent ma- 
terial forclothing,pulppaper.rq)e 
and twine, biomass energy, medi- 
cine and many other products. The 
illegality of cannabis does not pre- 
vent individuals from consuming 

Various "bowls" (pot pipss) and a fsw dosss of Acid adorning our 
Studont Handbook. 

you averaged it out, there would 
probably be at least one cocaine 
user per dwm floor." 

Why use drugs? 

The prim^ reason given at 
DVC for substance abuse is bore- 
dom. "Ifit's8:(X)pm, and you've 
finished studying, and it's too 
early to go to bed, there' s nothing 
really exciting to do. It's too late 
to go out, and there's nothing to 
do as far as campus activities. 
Smc^ng a bowl with your room- 
mate or a few friends is a really 
convenient thing to do to relax," 
offered one Animal Science 

The debate between pot smok- 
ers and anti-drug activists is age- 
old. Legalizers argue it is no 
worse if not better than alcohol. 
Anti-pot individuals express con- 
cern for the country developing a 
new problem. Alcohol, although 
legal, is currently the top drug 
problem in the U.S.; the accep- 
tance of a new drug, pot, would 
only hurt our country. 
According toThe Emperor's New 
Clothes , a book devoted to expos- 

Medical disad- 
vantages of drug 

-Hallucinations, panic may 

-Physica^f)sychological de- 
pendence may develop 
-Coma aiKfor death are pos- 
sible, in case of overdose 
-Damage to body tissues, 
membranes, and organs 
-Loss of judgement and self 

it now.. Its legality would only 
provide greater revenue for the 
U.S. government, through taxing 
and regulation. 

Many students expressed posi- 
tive exper^ces with marijuana. 
One senior encourages, "Every- 
one (mentally stable) should do it 
a couple of times. It really brings 
out an immense creativity." 

"I believe the anti-drug cam- 
paign is targeted completely 
wrong. Kids are led to believe that 
every drug is as equally bad. 
Marijuana is in a completely dif- 
ferent league than crack and hero- 
ine. There's kind-of a hierarchy: 
(from oJc. to bad) I. pot. 2. acid, 
mushrooms, 3. cocaine, crack, 
heroin, pep." 

Dean Phyllis Shields blames "our 
quick-fix society." The cunent 
students belong to the video gen- 
eration. They want to be enter- 
tained. Only constructive forms of 
entertainment, creativity, and 
strong leadership can draw stu- 
dents away from the drug scene. 
"The kids need hope. They need 
to care about one another." Many 
students don'tconsider the impact 
that the things they are doing now 
will have later in life. Until 
society ' s attitude changes the drug 
issues cannot be addressed. 

Students saying 

Thirty-five students responded 
to the Ram Pages survey as never 
having used drugs. One such indi- 
vidual is Kristin Fusi. 

Kristin grew-up in a rural com- 
munity and was "never really ex- 
posed to drugs in high school." 
When she came to DVC, she was 
"shocked that people do use a lot 
(^ drugs, and nobody seems to do 
anything about it" Kiisten fur- 
ther explained, "1 mean, in the 
middle of the day, you can walk 
through the halls and smell poc, w 
see towels under the doors. That's 
one of the reasons that I don't live 
on campus; I don't feel like being 

surrounded by a bunch of drug- 
gies all of the time." She be- 
lieves that heavy drug use stems 
greatly from peer pressure. "At 
parties there will always be the 
'copr people who use drugs, and 
then the 'tag alongs,' who want 
to be 'cool' too." Kristen has 
seen many of her friends' and 
acquaintances' lives screwnl up 
by drugs and alcohol. As a solu- 
tion to the problem, she offers, 
"If more people were concerned, 
and turned in people they saw 
abusing drugs, the problem could 
be combatted." 


Eliminating illegal drug use on 
the DVC campus, or any other 
campus for that matter, is rather 
improbable. Aside from turning 
DVC into a police state, with 
random room checks, mandatory 
urine drug testing, and body/car 
searches, few alternatives exist. 
Only a total and combined effort 
by all members of the DVC com- 
munity will result in a decreased 
drug problem. 

Discouraging drug use (Just say 
No!), through peer pressure and 
social mcHality is one way to 

Two of DVC's "Infamous" 
Mariiuana bongs (smoMng 

lessen the volume of drug abuse. 
Perhaps a few examples of stu- 
dents sent to prison would instill 
a sense of fear to current users. 
Many renowned psychologists, 
through studies, have stated that 
this is the best deterrent. The 
decision to use drugs is ultimately 
that of the individual. It is nearly 
impossible for an organization, 
group, or individual to totally 
prevent illegal drug use. 

Editorial commentary: 

The Editors of this newspa- 
per do not* in any way, con- 
done the use of dmgs. Ontfie 
cofttrary, we are gieaUy (^

any kind due to their adverse 
health risks. Drug use is not 
only a problem at DVC, but a

"Fantastic"Even Steven, 
A Tribute to Elton John 

By Tce-yee Poon 

Staff Writer 

This concert sponsored by 
SAC (Student Activities Com- 
mity) was a big hit, with over 
100 Del Val students in atten- 
dance. Even Stephen, aka. El- 
ton John put on an impressive 
concert. He looked and 

sounded like Elton John. His 
spectactular production in- 
cluded the "Elton" like cos- 
tumes and a special piano that 
had iMiilt in lazer effects and a 
smoke machine. Even Steven 
is probably "the only one who 
could celebrate the world of 
Elton John, and with the area's 
top musicians, he relives 
memories." Even Steve played 
many of Elton's most popular 
songs such as: "Candle in the 
Wtrvl ""RnrlrrtMjin ""Remv 
and the Jets," "Goodbye Yel- 
low Brick Road," "Levon," 

PhD rumor 

By Ben Press 

Assistant Photo Editor 

A recent nmior on campus 
has the Board of Trustees of 
Delaware Valley College 
(DVQ requiring any new fac- 
ulty member hired for teaching 
to possess a Doctorate degree. 

According to Dr. Dan Tan- 
ner, head of the Academic De- 
partment at DVC, there is ab- 
solutely no truth to this rumor. 
"What has been said is that 
instmctors with RiD's can be 
more easily attracted to the 
school because of economic 
conditions, and since accredi- 
tation facilities rate schools on 
the number of WiD's on staff, 
DVC should take advantage of 
an opportunity to obtain more 
PhD certified instructors if 
those opportunities present 

Apparently, most schools 
have at least 75 percent of their 
faculty positions filted by PhD 
holders. At DVC, the percent- 
age of full time faculty PhD's 
is less than half, at 47 percent. 
Remaining fuU time faculty is 
comprised of 49 percent 
Master's and 4 percent

Fightin'," and " Crocodile 

This concert was very realis- 
tic and had great lighting which 
was provided by Zeus Light- 
ing and Sound. This event got 
many rave reviews from the 
audience. Those that 1 spoke to 
after the show all had basicaly 
the same responses, "It was 
great, 1 was very impressed" 
and "He really sounded like 
Elton John." Even Steven is 
able to imitate Elton John so 
well because, he had woiked 
with Elton John for a shoit 
time. Sac Members were very 
pleased with the attendance.

Campus Improvement 

(Continued fiom front) 

This project has an estimated 
cost of $140,000. Kane said 
"Dean Hill and President West 
support this project idea." A 
planning commission will be 
chosen consisting of various 
representatives from all depart- 
ments. The commission will 
look at the history of the Col- 
lege to preserve imifonnity of 
the Geoipan Style Architec- 
tural scheme of the other build- 
ings on Cimpus. "It is very 
imnortant that evervone must 
look at the project as a whole 
and get involved, or it will not 

be successful. Everyone must 
develop the same visions." 

Once the final additions or 
omissions are made to the 
project, the planning commis- 
sion will then submit a pro- 
posal to major foundations for 
grants to fund the project The 
College has to start with small 
projects to develop a "track 
record" with the foundations, 
so in the future their success 
will build a case for generating 
more monev to fund maior 

This project will be urvjer- 

taken by a combination of con- 
tractors and students. The con- 
tractors will deal with the con- 
stmction of the large trellis and 
demolition of the asphalt, while 
the students will peifonn brick- 
work and planting. Doug Kane 
believes that this project will 
be an excellent educational 
experience assisting the stu- 
dents in tearing design and {ban- 
ning, as well as providing 
"hands on" experience. 

Kane feels that the "land- 
scaping of previous years was 
not appealing." He acknowl- 

edged the reason for tiiis is 
"proper planning was not im- 
portant in the past The Col- 
lege nzshed all of its projects, 
v^ch resulted in waste." He 
wants to abandon this ad hoc 
approach and make sure every- 
thing is taken iitto consider- 
ation before breaking ground. 
Kane believes that "the Col- 
lege must begin to develop 
systematically, orderiy, and 
comprehensibly for any of its 
nmiect.s tn he Kiicce.4»fii1 in 
years to come."

The Honors Colloquium 
class is concentrating on archi- 
tecture this semester and has 
taken an interest in the fuhire 
oftheRothFann. Donated to 
DVCbyEdytheRoth,the farm 
serves the purpose of agricul- 
tural education and research. It 
is hoped that the farm will show 
a living history to the commu- 
nity. Dr. Avery feels it would 
be nice forpeople to "grasp the 
potential of the property." 

The class became interested 
in the farm when their instruc- 
tor. Dr. Miller, took them on a 
tour of the farm for a class trip. 
As all of the students are re- 
quired to complete a fmal 
project the idea of servicing 
the farm was proposed. 

Following some advice from 
Dr. Avery, on Tuesday, April 
6, seven students traveled to 
the Roth Farm . They helped to 
remove the paiKls that sealed 
the walk-in fire place of the 
one room of the house. Stu- 
dents also tackled the job of 

removing the panels of tt^ 
closet in the current kitclKn. 
All of the paneling in the 
kitchen is not original and will 
eventually be removed. As pan- 
els and other pieces of wood 
were being pried off, other stu- 
dents pulled the nails from the 

The students managed to get 
the door off of the closet by a 
lot of prying and patience. Dr. 
Avery was glad to have student 
assistance; "Young people used 
primitive tools to do that woric 
because that is the appropriate 
way to get it done." 

Students participating in this 
project were: Christine Buc- 
zek, Kyle Probst, Mike Focht 
Kim Manser, Angela Vincent, 
Jenni Pardoe, and Chariotte 
Walker. They were aided by 
Dr. and Mrs. Avery. 

A dedication of the Roth 
Farm will be held on May 14 
from 1 -3 pm that will include 
many hisorical presentations 
that pertain to the b2K:kground 
of this area. The public is

Recently researchers 
sampled a group of university 
women to detemiine the fre- 
quency of rape in this popula- 
tion. They found that one in 
every five of these women have 
been raped at some time in 
their life! Rape and violent 
crime traumatize the survivor's 
life, long after the assault. 

We are a non-profit organi- 
zation funded by the National 
Institute of Mental Health to 
study responses to sexual and 
nonsexual assault, and to de- 
velop effective treatments U) 
aid assault survivors. We are 
c{4)able of offering free treat- 
ment to eligible women. 

We are writing to you, now, 
and at this time in an effort to 
reach the women of this popu- 
lation. You can telp us let 
these women know about our 
available treatment programs. 
By following through with 
these actions, you are doing a 
great service to many women.

Earth Day 1993 

Environment calls for action 

By Mame Sugarmtin 

Health and Science Editor 

Since the first Earth Day, 
we have let tht earth fall apait 
like an old Kmart slipper. Now 
we must put forth the effort to 
mend the damage. 

The environmental move- 
ment began witti a few dedi- 
cated individuals on April 22, 
1970, and burgeoned into a 
fad. Since that day, people 
around the world connect 
through the ecological conse- 

quences of their actions that 
affecting everyone else. 

In Americans eaiiy days, 
Native Americans had diffi- 
culty understanding the white 
man's concefH of "buying" 
land. Native Americans could 
not imagine the air, sky, and 
grass attached to a price tag. 
Nature belonged to no one but 
Native Americans held land 

sacred. Their souls were in the 
land, and they wanted the set- 
tlers to pay homage, and re- 
spect the earth. Settlers p^d 
little heed. 

What happened to the rev- 
erence for the earth displayed 
by the Native Americans? With 
so many more important things 
going on, it gets lost in the 
shuffle of life. 

Even though the Environ- 


A wave of the future? 

By Mame Sugarman 

Health and Science Editor 

Gaitage is the mnains of 
our culture. 

If important facts about life 
in old societies can be gleaned 
from artifacts, then future gen- 
erations will gain their knowl- 
edge about twentieth century 
man through his throw away 

F.very person in America 
ger^rates fourpourids of trash 
per day. If each person had 
their own personal landfill for 
a year, each would have about 
1,460 pounds worth of infor- 
mation on tlKir lives. 

America is experiencing a 
garbage crisis. Over 70% of 
trash is buried in 5,500 land- 
fills throughout the country. 
Many landfills are reaching ca- 
pacity with few new ones be- 
ing approved. 

The Fresh Kills Landfill on 
St'iten Island, the largest land- 
fill covering 3,000 acres, con- 
tains trash 25 times the volume 
of the Great Pyramid at Giza. 
What are people going to do 
wh»i landfills are fiill and avail- 
able land is used? Why, exca- 
vate them, of course. After all, 
we should know what we are 
donating to the future since we 
are giving them so much of it! 

Composition of a Landfill 

Paper comprises 50% of a 
typical landfill. Newspapers 
alone inhabit 18% of all land- 
fill space, and do not biode- 
grade under dailc, airtight con- 
ditions. Paper is the fastest 
growing landfill item, in spite 
of recycling efforts. 

Miscellaneous items such as 
textiles, tires, construction 
materials, and diapers com- 
prises 20% of a laiKifill. The 

1.5 million tons of discarded 
disposable diapers takes up 
0.8% of landfill space. The 
main problem here lies in con- 
struction debris, accounting for 

Food scraps and organic 
waste occupy 13% of a land- 
fill, followed by plastics, ac- 
counting for 10% of the vol; 
ume. Thanks to the compact- 
ness and crushabtlity of plas- 
tics, they pose less of a prob- 
lem than expected. 

Trends and fads in the 
American diet are studied 
through garbology. 

Gartx)logists uncovered the 
"great beefdiscovery" of 1973, 
during an excavation. They 
found that people were dis- 
carding three times the normal 
the amounts of edible beef that 
spoiled as a result of crisis buy- 
ing, coinciding with a national 
beef shortage. 

Usually 15% of the average 
American's food is discarded, 
equalling a total of 50 million 
tons of food gone to waste. 

The most common food 
found in landfills are hot dogs. 
Apparently, theirpreservatives 
are quite effective! 

With IK) light, air, and mois- 
ture, 20% to 50% of organic 
wastes biodegrade within the 
first 15 years, an eventual, but 
slow process. Some organic 
waste is even made into com- 

Metal occupies 6%, and 
glass, the remaining 1 % of land- 
fill space. 

Garbologists Extract 

Garbologists gather all their 
information through excavat- 
ing, si fting, touching, and even 
smelling the contents of a land- 

fill. Garbologists dig in order 
to learn about mi- 

mental Protection Agency was 
fomied and the Qean Air Act 
was passed, it does not look as 
if the message of environmen- 
tal protection was conveyed 
cleariy enough. 

People cannot take advan- 
tage of the title "environmen- 
talist" without converting their 
words into action. After all, 
who is against the environ- 

Over the past 23 years, we 
have allowed the senseless 
slaughter and extinction of ani- 
mals who inhabit the vanish- 
ing rainforests. 

With the rise of industry, air 
and waterways have b«x)me 
more toxic, not less, in spite of 
increased "awareness." 
Garbage dumps have confis- 
cated valuable lands. 

Even the heavens, punc- 

tured with holes, resembles 
Swiss cheese, endlessly crying 
for repair. 

Dare to listen to the mes- 
sages nature sends. 
We must challenge ourselves 
to shift our thinking as weU 
as our behavior, look not at 
just today, but of all the tomor- 
rows that will hopefully hap-

in Walden, "The earth is not a

Garbologists discovered that 
the poor and the wealthy waste 
less than the middle class. Evi- 
dence of home car care prod- 
ucts in a landfill indicite a low 
income family. Midcfle income 
families show evidence of 
home repair products. High 
inc(Hne families are categorized 
by yard-care items. 

Problems Sometimes Occur 

What leaks out can be more 
dangerous than what is put into 
a landftll. 

Water aiui methane gas can 
effectively be harnessed 
through decomposing trash in 
a landftll. 

When toxic household items 
such as ov^ clearer, batteries, 
nail polish, and nail polish re- 
mover are discarded with regu- 
lar trash, water can become 

Leachate, or harmful leak- 
age, can form, and seep into 
the underground water sup- 
plies, rivers, and lakes, further 

contaminating bod- 
ies of water. 

Landftlls are designed with 
a series of airtight layers in 
attempts to prevent these prob- 
lems from ha(^)eiiiiig. 

Reversing the Garbi^e Glut 

Recycling, r^isii^, and re- 
ducing are the keys to alleviat- 
ing the trash cri^ 

Almost all piodiKti cm be 
reused. Insteatliif GOffeeina 
styrofoam cup at wchIl every 
morning, bring in a ceramic 
mug. For a woik year of ap- 
proximately 350 days, 350 sty- 
rofoam cups per person could 
be eliminated from a landftll. 
Through reusing, the amount 
of waste is reduced. 

Fast food packaging is com- 
mon in residential refuse, par- 
alleling the rising number of 
working adults in a household. 
Convenience has its cost, how- 
ever. Since the two parent

foods, packaging slK)uld be re-

People may think garbolo-

think again. After all, if high

believe that trash was a source 
of valuable infonnation, they 
would not have gone to all the 
trouble of shredding their trash 
in 1972.

Major swell 
in Freshman 
Class of *97? 

By Ben Press 

Assistant Photo Editor 

The latest figures are in for 
the incoming Freshman Qass, 
and it appears Delaware Val- 
ley College (DVC) is going to 
have a record attendance this 
fall semester. 

Will this put a strain on class- 
room and dormitory capaci- 

Not according to Stephen Ze- 
nko. Director of Admissions. 
"We are right on target for the 
number we were looking 
for... enrollment has been go- 
ing up in preceding years." Mr. 
Zenko told Ram Pages th^ 
there are 1^50 applicants to 
DVC this year, versus 1,460 
last year. At press time, there 
were 500 deposits at the 
Registrar's Office. 

Mr. Zenko does not feel the 
College will have difficulty in 
dealing with the overload of 
students expected to attend 
DVC. "It's tme that housing 
and classrooms will be at full 
capacity," but not all of the 
applicants are expected to ac- 
tually enroll. Forexample, they 
may not receive their expected 
financial aid. or may choose 
otherschools. Also, current stu- 
dents may leave or transfer to 
other schools, for these rea- 
sons; "the College feels it can 
handle the number of appli-

In response to a statement that 
the numberofnew students may 
cause a housing shortage, Ze- 
nko replied "We are watching 
that very carefully." There had 
been speculation that the Col- 
lege would seek off-campus 
housing for Seniors, but accord- 
ing to the Office of Residence 
Life, there is no truth to that. 
Residence Life posts houses and 
apartments available to students 
from private landlords, but DVC 
itself does not have off campus 
housing available.

T\iition increase slated 
for 1993 fall semester 

By Ben Press 

Assistant Photo Editor 

By now, all students should 
have received a notice that tu- 
ition at Delaware Valley Col- 
lege (DVC) will increase begin- 
ning with the Fall '93 semester. 
Rates will go up five percent for 
tuition and seven percent for 
room and board. This represents 
an annual increase of $550.00 
for tuition, $140.00 for rooms, 
and between $152.00 and 
$177.00 lor board, depending 
on which meal plan a student 
chooses. In a letter to students 
and parents. Mr. George West, 
President of DVC. states that 
"the increase for next year is 
one of the lowest, in percentage 
terms, in recent years." Mr. 
West also states that "We are 
detemiincd to maintain and im- 
prove the quality of education 
provided to students with a pru- 
dent, balanced budget." 

According to Arthur Foley, 

newly elected Chairman of 
the BoardofTmsteesof DVC, 
"Rising inflation makes it 
Imperative that we raise tu- 
ition at DVC, however, we do 
try to keep these increases to 
a minimum. ..the subsidy that 
we received from the state 
this year was less than half of 
what we received last year, 
which caused great financial 
difficulty for the school... but, 
if you look at comparable 
schools, you will find DVC at 
the lower end of the tuition 

In the '92- '93 school year, 
charges for a full lime resi- 
dent student were : Tuition and 
fees of $1 1.090; room fee of 
1 ,960; and board fee (the Col- 
lege offers three plans of any 
14. 16, or 20 meals per week) 
of $2, 170 10 $ 2.520. In the 
Fall semester, charges will be 
as follows: Tuition and fees 
of $11,645; room fee of 

$2,100; and board fees of 
$2,430 to $2,700. There is an 
additional fee of $1,000 for 
Equine students. 

Comparable schools in the 
area include: Beaver College, 
with a total enrollment of 
2,269. has tuition and fees of 
$ 1 6.6 1 0; Ursinus College, en- 
rollment 1.300. has tuition and 
fees of $ 1 9,000; andGwynned 
Mercy College, with enroll- 
ment of 1 ,925, has tuition and 
fees of $ 14,350. Total enroll- 
ment of full time day students 
at DVC is 1,123. 

As tuition costs rise, stu- 
dents and parents will want to 
know where their money is 
going. "The money from tu- 
ition increases wiU be com- 
bined with contributions from 
alumni, foundations, and cor- 
porations," West said. "It will 
be used for much-needed re- 
pair work on dormitories, and 
also toward making the cam- 

pus safer by improving lighting 
in the paricing lots and other 
areas of the campus." 

Some of the funds generated 
by the tuition increase and other 
contributions will go toward 
older projects. A fund was set 
up two years ago to revamp 
dormitories as part of the Cen- 
tennial Campaign. The cam- 
paign is intended to help refur- 
bish the DVC campus for its 
100 year anniversary in 1996. 

As usual, the cost of educa- 
tion will follow the same path 
as the nations' course of infla- 
tion, whichhasspiraledsteadily 
upward. DVC will not be alone 
in the increases. Tuition costs 
increased six to thirteen percent 
between 1990-1993. Economic 
downturn has resulted in cuts in 
public funding for education.

ures apply to full-time students

The Lime Rockets 

By Michelle Slaybaugh 

News Editor 

Portland, Maine's Lime 
Rockets are a rising name in the 
"alternative" scene. Character- 
ized by band members as "pro- 
gressive with an edge," the group 
has been playing Colleges from 
Maine to New Jersey as part of 
the NACA tour, they visited 
Delaware Valley College 
(DVC) on April 14, 1993. 
Shawn (guitar), Eric (vocals), 
Doug (dnims), and Frank (bass), 
comprise the Lime Rockets. 
Thcirinflucnces vary, individu- 
ally, but as a whole. The Police 
and Jimi Hendrix have greatly 
contributed to their sound. The 
band's original songs arc very 
"down to earth." They relate 
every-day experiences, like 
travel, or "ugly" relationships. 
Their performance at DVC 
was simply incredible. Energy 
emanated from the group. The 
crowd responded in a fit of danc- 
ing and slamming. Playing pri- 

marily cover songs, the Lime 
Rockets' originals were re- 
ceived equally well. This can 
be attributed to their "good 
melody" that "gets you up." 
Many of the covers were 
astonishingly accurate. Eric's 
strong, deep vocals were es- 
pecially suited U) remakes from 
Live, Alice in Chains, and 
Screaming Trees. The com- 
bined stage presence of Shawn 

and Doug was absolutely mind- 
shattering. Frank provided an 
excellent foundation, duplicat- 
ing difficult Red Hot Chili Pep- 
pers ' and Pearl Jam bass lines 
with ease. 

Through playing the college 
tour they hope to generate 
enough fiinds to record a demo 
tape. They are looking for a 
recording contract in the near

A-Day committee displeased 
\irith Ram Pages 

To The Editor: 

In reference to your last is- 
sue of the Ram Pages, the A- 
Day Committee feels that the 
content was inappropriate for 
the A-Day weekend. We feel 
A-Day is a time for showing 
off the college and the hard 
woiicing students behind it. The 
letters and articles concerning 
Rape and Dmgs on campus 
was undermining the intentions 
of A-Day. We do not feel that 
these issues should not be ad- 
dressed, but the lime in which 
you chose to publish them was 
poor on your pan. We would 
prefer to have seen articles 

showing the positive aspects 
of the college and addressed 
the time, effort and care that a 
small handful of people put in 
to make A-Day successful for 
the entire college community. 
We also feel that your distri- 
bution was careless. Piles of 
papers were left around cam- 
pus which proceeded to blow 
away the rest of the weekend. 
The people working to make 
A-Day run smoothly did not 
appreciate having to pick up 
flying papers at 3 AM Sunday 
morning while the rest of cam- 
pus was at a party or sleeping. 

The A-Day Committee 
woiics extremely hard with 
many students not even realiz- 
ing what we actually do and 
now due to your negligence 
our job was made harder arul 
more stressful in our dealings 
with the outside community 
and parents and their com- 
plaints. We hope you will take 
this into consideration in the 
future and support A-Day and 
the college. 

Matthew Martcnas Chairman 
Margaret Wollers Secretary 
The A-Day Committee 

To the A-Day committee: 

In reference to your concern 
about our method of distribu- 
tion during the A-Day period, 
we do admit carelessness in 
placing the papers where they 
could blow about the campus. 
For that we sincerely apolo- 
gize and regret any iiKonve- 
nience it may have caused. We 
will make every possible effort 
; to work closer with the A-Day 
committee next vear to prevent 
any more unfortunate circum- 
stances from occurring. 

We offer the following re- 
ply, not in defense, but instead 
to clarify the purpose of a cam- 
pus newspaper to you and oth- 

The contents of the past is- 
sue of Ram Pages was in no 
way intended to "undermine 
the intentions of A-Day." Our 
intentions, as always, were to 
present the issues that face the 
students of Delaware Valley 
College (DVQ without regard 
to timing. The issues addressed 
do not choose to happen at 
appropriate times, rather, as is 
true in everyday life, they of- 
ten happen at the most inop- 
portune times. We will not 
attempt to sugar coat any nega- 
tive issue that transpires on 
this campus regardless of when 
they occur. We feel it is neces- 
sary to report on these inci- 
dents in an honest and timely 
fashion in order to keep the 
people of the DVC community 
infomicd. We arc not trying to 
offend anyone's sensibilities. 
On the contrary, our goal is to 
address issues that involve 
critical thought. To only 
present the positive aspects of 
DVC would be biased and 
"negligent" on our part. 

There are two main reasons 
for the existence of a student 
—newspaper. The first is to pro- 
vide an open forum through 

which students, can express 
their ideas or concerns. The 
second is to be a watchdog for 
the students of a college com- 
munity. In addition, although 
Ram Pages is "only" a college 
newspaper, it is still protected 
by the First Amendment Right 
of free speech. 

Ram Pages ftiUy supports, 
and acts as, the voice of the 
DVC student body. As al- 
ways, we welcome any and all 
comments, complaints, and 
suggestions. We regret any 
inconveniences you may have 
suffered in dealing with com- 
plaints received about subject 
matter that the April 23rd issue 
contained. In the future we 

suggest you direct any and all 
complaints to our office, as we 
are ultimately responsible for 
what is published in Ram 

Ram Pages will remain true 
to its duty to report the news, 
events, and incidents that oc- 
cur on our campus regardless 
of the nature, and without def- 
erence to anyone. 

In conclusion. Ram Pages 
would like to thank everyone 
on the A-Day comm ittee for all 
your hard work and effort. It 
was a great success and you 
deserve many thanks. 


Ram Pages Editorial Staff 


Ram Pages, Delaware Val- 
ley College's Student News- 
paper. A year and a half ago 
it was a simple campus news- 
letter. Today, it is a respect- 
able college newspaper that 
is the voice and watchdog of 
the DVC students. 
To the Ram Pages Staff: 

You arc the reason for the 
existence and success of Ram 
Pages and because you dare 
to broach controversial is- 
sues and report the facts you 
will remain some of the most 
under recognized students on 
the DVC campus. Not ev- 
eryone will agree with the 
paper's position or under- 
stand your reasons, but as 
long as you present the facts 
objectively you will remain 
credible. Administrators, 
faculty and other students 
do not realize the hours, dedi- 
cation or commitment you 
have given the college and 
its paper. It is for this reason 
we, Tina Demenczuk and 
Paul E. Schneider, would like 
to recognize and thank you 
all for your dedication and 
commitment. The job you 
do is the most important ser- 
vice that can be offered to 
the students at DVC. 

As the retiring Editors-In- 
Chief, we would like to ex- 
tend our deepest gratitude 

and appreciation to you. 
You deserve more than a 
simple thanks from your 
Editors, but that's all 
we have to offer. Al- 
though there are no cer- 
tificates, trophies or 
plaques, you may have 
the self satisfaction of 
knowing you arc a mem- 
ber of the most success- 
ful and unified team on 
campus. You have our 
deepest respect for over- 
coming all the trials and 
tribulations we all have 
been faced with and 
growing pains we have 
gone through during the 
past year and a half It is 
your hard work that has 
made Ram Pages what it 
is today, and for that you 
should be proud. We are 
fortunate to have had you 
as fellow team members 
and we are proud to have 
been able to work with 

Just remember, some- 
times the barriers you 
will face will seem im- 
possible to overcome, but 
as long as you work as a 
unified team there is 
nothing that can stand in 
your way. "ALWAYS 

A farewell from Mrs. Steinmetz 

During my year at Del Val 1 
have had many wonderful ex- 
periences, I worked in the li- 
brary full time and with stu- 
dents and faculty, as well as 
staff reporters, who were work- 
ing special news and feature 
stories. Attimeslwouldbein 
the Student Center for a fac- 
ulty meeting and see tired staff 
members who were on a dead- 
line which was only hours 
away. Behind that tiredness 
was the smile of someone who 
knew that work was worth the 

During the more ihan twenty 
years tliat 1 have eillicr taught 
English or worked as a librar- 
ian, students often came to me 
with complaints. When I 
would suggest they could be 
part of the solution to the prob- 
lem, most would walk away. 
Some of the comments v ere: 
"I don't have time: "I can't 
make a difference:" "It's a 
problem, but its not just my 

problem;" "I'm only one per- 
son." etc. As part of the news- 
paper staff on a college paper, 
each staff member makes adif- 
ference. Newspaper staffs con- 
sist of reporters in every area. 
The staff incluties News. Sports 
and Specialty Feature Areas/ 
Beats. Columnists write on 
topics which vary according to 
theColumnist'sexpertise. Edi- 
torialists analyze the news. Any 
memberof the newspaper staff 
can write an editorial if contro- 
versial events occur in his/licr 
beat. Photographers and Art- 
ists arc important because they 
illustrate what the writer has to 
say. A picture/cartoon may be 
a story by itself or it may ac- 
company a news story. The 
staff also includes data oriented 
computer people who work on 
newspaper layout and help fix 
computers or software glitches. 
Besides the reporter there is 
the editor who is charge of his/ 
her department. Story assign- 

ments and collect assignments 
by deadline arc part of the editor's 
job. Editors of various depart- 
ments general discuss the focus 
of each issue. Each editor dis- 
cusses assignments with his staff 
before reporter and photogra- 
phers leave on their respective 

As you can see. there is some- 
thing for everyone. Every year 
the new incoming staff is trained 
to write in newspaper style. The 
new staff also learns how to use 
computers. The experience 
gained on the computer could 
help you after graduation if your 
employer were to ask you to 
supervise or write a company 
newsletter. You'll know how to 
write it and how to lay it out or 
teach someone else how to do it. 

For those who are still saying, 

"Yeah, but When you leave 

Del Val, your employer or the 
admissions director of your 
graduate school will want to see 
physical evidence of what you 

can do. Ascrapbookofyour 
clippings (news & feature 
stories), photographs, art 
work, and layout design are 
real proof that you can think, 
work independently and yet 
as part of a team. In real life, 
these three areas are neces- 
sary to your, economic sur- 
vival whether you work for 
someone else or have your 
own business. 

TTiis letter is also a good- 
bye. In August, 1 will be 
retuming to graduate school. 
My career goal is to be a 
hospital chaplain in a long- 
term health care facility. I 
worked with the librarians, 
staff and student assistants 
who were both woruleriul and 
professional. While woric- 
ing as a librarian, I enjoyed 
helping the students, staff and 
faculty. It has been a very 
positive, joyful experience 
for me.

student displeased with poor classroom conditions 

Dear Ram Pages Staff: 

Do I detect discontent in 
many of the students at Dela- 
ware Valley College(DVC); 
discontent about a number of 
things, probably, but includ- 
ing dissatisfaction about the 
(^ysical plant itself? 

The answer is yes, as I have 
learned from speaking with a 
number of fellow-students. 
One of the complaints we share 
is that of airless classr(X)ms, 
especially those in the Student 

It has been the misfortune of 
my Monday evening hydrol- 
ogy class to have to use the so- 
called classrooms in the Cen- 
ter on two occasions so far this 
semester. Mandell 114 is our 
regularclassroom. but forcer- 
lain reasons we had to suffer 
anoxia and lack of ctesks to 
write upon when the class was 
temporarily shifted. Even 
worse, each occasion was at 
the time we had an important 

The first room we used on 
the top floor of the Center has 
no windows, and the hall doors 
were closed. Even if open, 
that would not help because 
there is no air exchange in the 
hall either. The ventilating 

system was turned off. After 
an hour or more the air was no 
longer fit to breathe, especially 
since there arc about 50 stu- 
dents in the class. When I 
returned to the room after about 
a 10 minute break I could 
hardly believe how tnily fetid 
the air had become by then. 
The fact that anyone was con- 
scious at the end of the evening 

is amazing. I only wish the 
Dean or other administrators 
had been there to sec (smell?) 
the problem 

Noise annoys. Most people 
say they don't really notice 
constant noises where they 
work or they "get used to it." 
They may believe that, but 
many articles have been pub- 
lished which make it clear we 
are harmed physically and 
mentally by noise we may not 
seem to notice. 

Even if the noise were hami- 
less (it isn't), the constant 
screeching of the classrooms 
chairs often drowns out some 
of the lecturer's words. They 
don't squeak; they screech. 
These are the chairs with the 
tubular steel legs meeting at 
the center under the seat, held 
in place by a housing and a 
steel bolt. It would only take 
about three man-hours to 
tighten all such chairs in the 
college. Some are so loose 
they seem ready to collapse. 
Tightening the bolts after 
spraying the relevant parts with 
a silicone lubricant would be a 
great help, although it may not 
totally eliminate the screech. 
Simply crossing your legs or 

reaching for a book makes a 

Since the autumn of 1990. 1 
have complained to my teach- 
ers about these chairs. I doubt 
any of them took it seriously, 
for the chairs have remained 
as noisy as ever, A few months 
ago I suggested U) a certain 
college administrator that he 
ask the maintenance depart- 

ment to spend a few hours tight- 
ening the chairs; all of them. 
Obviously the suggestion was 
ignored. I can only assume no 
one feels it is important enough 
to warrant even a small amount 
of labor. 

1 know the College is in dire 
financial straits; the Philadel- 
phia Inquirer wrote of this a 
year or more ago. It would take 
many thousands of dollars to 
replace windows with those that 
can be opened. But is there a 
choice? After all. how many of 
you have three or four severe 
head colds each school year 
because we are rebreathing each 
others viruses in classrooms 
where the same stale air remains 
hour after hour? Being chilled 
has nothing to do with catching 
a cold. Experiments with vol- 
unteers have proved this many 
times. It is the return to the 
classrooms and its stale air that 
does it. Why else do so many 
people catch a cold in Septem- 
ber when it is still summer? 

I assume some classrooms 
have mechanical ventilation, at 
least during daylight hours. But 
is the airexchanged by taking in 
fresh air from outdoors or is the 
system only heating/cooling the 

same stale air? In Scandinavia 
there are national standards that 
require indoor air to be com- 
pletely exchanged within a 
specified number of minutes. I 
will inquire about such regula- 
tions anywhere in this country. 
Why is it that so many build- 
ings in the U.S.A. continue to 
be built with vo apparent thought 
of exchanging indoor air? Are 

the architects anaerobes? Many 
offices, schools, churches, hos- 
pitals etc. have this problem. 

Oh yes, the second room we 
had to use in the Center was 
the Music Room. This past 
Monday night I observed no 
apparent ventilation, ami, of 
course, the windows do rwt 
open. Further, the chalkboand 
is poorly lighted. 

Getting back to money and 
priorities, it may be less ex- 
pensive and may be done more 
swiftly if all the heating and 
cooling systems could be 
modified to provide constant 
air exchange, day and night, at 
the flick of a switch on the 
classroom wall. Repls^ing 
windows can be done later if 
necessary when a generous 
alumna/alumnus comes forth 
with the money. 

Discontented students do not 
become generous alumni. 1 
encourage all students to voice 
theirdiscontentsdearty, force- 
fully, and continually, if not 
continuously, to the College 
administration. There is an 
old Russian proveifo which says 
"if you act like a sheep, the 
wolf will eat you up." N<H 
good grammar, perhaps, but 

the message to you should be 
clear. After all, we are paying 
top dollar for tuition, and we 
shouldexpect reasonable value 
in return. 

Who knows; with some real 
air in the classrooms we may 
leam better and boost our grade 
point average.

Class of 1 929 
Lounge use 

Dear Editor, 

Recently while eating din- 
ner at the pub 1 chanced to 
pick-up and read the student 
government minutes. I read 
the commuter report and I 
have some disagreements. 
First of all the room is called 
the Qass of 1 929 lounge; not 
the commuter lounge! It has 
no indication anywhere 
within or without that it is 
solely intended for commut- 
ers. Secondly, not all dorms 
on campus have lounges in 
them. Therefore, the Class of 
1 929 lounge is open grounds 
for whom ever seeks it. 

Chris Patzke 


Dear Mr. Patzke, 

In regard to your reply to 
Chris Albin's commuter re- 
port, we believe you are mis- 
taken. Tme, the lounge itself 
does not have a sign saying it 
is intended for commuter use 
only, but if you will refer to 
the Delaware Valley College 
Student Handbook the lounge 
is listed as the "Class of '29 
CommuterLounge... .available 
for Commuters to study and 
relax. ..hours are posted for 
Commuter use." This is not 
to say that Resident students 
may not enteror use the Com - 
muter Lounge. 

We are all DVC students 
and should not let a dispute 
over a simple room separate 
us into commuters and resi-

Editorial Responses 

Dear Editor, 

If the mud slinging is over I 'd 
like to take off my waders and 
makeafewobservations. When 
a person writes an editorial she 
opens herself up to potential 
ridicule. It's the price of free 
speech. I commend Ms. Slay- 
baugh for the work she put into 
her article on vandalism, how- 
ever, 1 was a little dismayed at 
her reaction to negative letters 
of respoase. The purpose of 
editorials is to expose problems 
or incite constmctive thought 
and action, not to Are salvos at 
those who write in response. 
Let's face it you will always get 
the last woixl since you work on 
the paper. Just relax! If you 
wercmisunderstood then clarity 
yourself, CALMLY. If your 
woik was good and you know it 

(and it was good) then there's 
no need to justify, simply 

As for those who wrote in, 
the juicy digs might make in- 
teresting copy but they don't 
validate your arguments 
(though they might be valid). 
The greater picture being 
painted here is the need to 
eradicate vandalism from Del 
Val. It's important to stay 
focused on the issue not to get 
sidetracked on one sentence 
and lose sight of that issue. I 
think society has gotten a little 
too thin skinned. Maybe Ms. 
Slaybaugh didn't use all the 
right words but her heart (and 
head) was in the right place!

Rape victim answers response letters 

Dear Editor: 

I wish to answer all of the 
responses that were generated 
by my letter that appeared in 
the April 8, 1993 issue. I am 
very glad that the DVC cam- 
pus is talking about the scri- 
ousnessof the rapes and sexual 
harassment that have been oc- 
curring. As I speak with stu- 
dents a lotof theirdiscussions 
%cm to be about the Ram 
Pages and its great concern 
about the college community 
and efforts to inform the stu- 
dent body of the TRUTH! 

I arn, however, greatly con- 
cerned about the letter called, 
"Student serious about rape 
issue." In addressing Mr. 
Haddcn's letter, Jamie, you 
are a very well spoken person 
2nd you have great writing 
ability. As for ripping apart 
my letter, I was not impressed; 
in fact I was very upset the 
first time that I read it. So, let 
nie try to clarify some things. 
First of all, I must acknowl- 
edge the concise presentation 
of my letter, I was expressing 
the anger and rage that has 
built up inside of me through 
these painful months. Now, I 
shall try to answer your ques- 
tions and concerns calmly the 
best that I can. 
1. Yes, I have received coun- 
seling from both a counselor 
and my friends. I urge every 
woman on this campus who 
has been raped to seek coun- 
seling inSegal Hall (especially 
from Betsy Arrison). Friends 
are all very helpful and can get 
you through a lot of things, 
but one friend who has been 
through the same experience 
is better than 10 friends who 
can only sympathize -- butnot 
untterstand! Ifanyone is in- 
terested in being part of a sup- 
port group for rape or harass- 
ment survivors, Betsy Arri- 
S(Hi is eager to coordinate the 
group; she can only help us, if 
we try to help ourselves. I 
sincerely hope that a network 
can be established, so that all 
victims of rape or any kind of 
harassment can be helped by 
each other. 

2. No, I have not tried to 
seek legal action and 1 will 
not Tlwre is no way that any 
or^ will change my mind on 
this subject. Legal action 
against the individual will not 
help me in any way. I can 
never regain what was taken 
from me. People don't seem 
to ktK) w how women feel after 
being raped arKi if people do 

not believe the anger that was 
shown in my last letter, then 
maybe you will listen to other 
sources. As it states in the 
book The Master Student, (as 
used in the New Student Semi- 
nar), "A person wIk) has been 
raped by a date might become 
depressed, feel guilty, have 
difficulty in school, lose asense 
of tnist, have sexual problems, 
or experience self-blame." 

3. I have a problem with the 
data that Mr. Haddon presented 
in his letter. 

A. "One in seven women 
now in college have been 
raped" (Wall Street Journal, 
June 27, 1992) versus the sta- 
tistic that" 1 woman in 1, OCX) is 
raped." The second statistic 
does rK)t specifically refer to 
college cam|Kises, therefore, it 
is rK)t appropriately parallel. 

B. According to a study 
conductwl for the National In- 
stitute of Mental Healthin 1984 
and 1985, or^ in nine college 
women has been raped. A more 
recent study estimated that of 
those rapes one in six were 
committal by men the women 

4. Your accusation, Jamie, 
when you wrote "This shows 
pure paranoia" helps to prove 
my point, because in that one 
sentence you have summed up 
the feeling of every rape vic- 
tim. Forexample, when 1 walk 
into a room where there are a 
lot of guys, no matter if they 
are nice or not, I will feel 
scarred. Even if it only bothers 
me for a minute, it is enough to 
bring back memories and the 
fear that I associate with the 

5. The statistics of rape on 
the DVC campus arc correct - 
in terms of or^s that are re- 
ported, but 1k}w many people 
really believe that rapes have 
occuredatDVC? "The prob- 
lem of under-reporting which 
is krwwn to confound estimates 
of the incidence of rape is espe- 
cially problematic in the case 
of sexual a^aultby non-strang- 
ers. The well-known Koss 
(Koss, 1988) study which col- 
lected data from college stu- 
dents on 32 campuses found 
that only 58% of victims rc- 
poried the mpe to anyone and a 
mere 5% reported the rape to 
the police." (Acquaintance 
Rape and the Cbllege Social 
Scene in Familv Relations 
January 1991) 

6. When you state, "Use 
your common sense, think 

ahead," you make it seem like 
rape will not happen if you 
have common sense. I hate to 
tell you, but no matter how 
many seminars you attend, or 
how aware you are of what can 
happen - any woman can still 
be raped. I cton't know whether 
you think that rape is the fault 
of the woman, but it isn't. 

7. My point about coming to 
DVC to learn about my field of 
study is not "irrelevant to the 
concern," because being raped 
affects every aspect of college 
life. When you said, "We all 
have had a hard time adjusting 
to college life our first year." 
Being raped should not be 
looked upon as a normal rite of 
Freshman passage. If adjust- 
ing to college life means ad- 
justing to being raped, I am in 
the wrong type of institution. 
There is a big difference be- 
tween adjusting to college life, 
and accepting life wl^re there 
is no faith or trust in anyone . 

8. Regardless of what you 
think, Mr. Haddon, I was not 
trying to put down tht school 
in any way. I have pride in Del 
Val as a learning institution, 
but my problems are with the 
way things have to be handled 
for students to maintain my 
sense of dignity forthemselves. 
I am trying to make DVC a 
better place, by bringing one of 
its problems to everyone's at- 
tention so that people can be 
helped if they have also been 
affected by this same problem. 

9. In changing the topic to 
what research has shown, a 
pamphlet from the Medical 
College of Pennsylvania 
(MCP) sutes that, "Approxi- 
mately 25 percent of American 
women will experience rape in 
their lifetimes. This is alarm- 
ing not only for tl^ potential 
physical harm int^rent in the 
trauma, but also because of its 
long-lasting psychological ef- 
fects. For neariy half of these 
women, the trauma does rwt 
erKl for months. For some 
women, it persists for many 
years." This is very tme forme 
and for many people that I 

When I was conducting some 
research for this letter, I learned 
about a disorder called the IH)st- 
Traumatic Stress Disorder 
(PTSD). As the MCP has pub- 
lished, "Many survivors of 
sexual and non-sexual assaults 
suffer from (PTSD) - contin- 
ued feelings or anxiety, terror 
and helplessness - which can 

persist and affect thei r lives for 
a long time." 

The research of the MCP 
indicates that 94 percent of 
rape victims develop symp- 
toms of PTSD within two 
weeks of their assault. Three 
months after being assaulted, 
neariy half continue ro suffer 
from chronic PTSD. After 
reading the following infor- 
mation, I felt that it would be 
appropriate to explain the 
symptoms of PTSD in order to 
inform other women that they 
are not alone in their feelings. 

The first time that I read 
these symptoms I realized that 
1 fit into all three of these cat- 
egories and have experienced 
many of the symptoms. I am 
also a little relieved that there 
is documentationof such a syn- 
drome. Now I know that my 
feelings are not strange and 1 
hope that I can deal with feel- 
ings in a more healing and 
productive manner. 

10. Lastly I would like to 
send a message to all of the 

rapists on this campus - not 
knowing how many there arc 
exactly, (I know of one for 
sure!) - 1 hope all of you will 
eventually realize what you 
have done one day. I also hope 
that you will never hurt any- 
one again and I wish that you 
could suffer just one day of 
any victim's psychological 
trauma, because it would prob- 
ably be enough to kill any one 
of you - if you could find your 
heart long enough to have any 

I would also like to send out 
an apology to all of the kind 
and caring men that do exist on 
this campus. You are all great 
and supportive and I hope that 
my letter did not offend, be- 
cause that was not it's purpose. 
I truly only wanted to make 
people aware of a terrible crime 
that has affected my life and 
the lives of other women on 
this campus and gone seem- 
ingly unnoticed even when 
people know what is happen- 
ing to their friends.

Immediate and long-term symp- 
toms of PTSD include:

b. Nightmares about the trauma 

c. Intense emotional distress when reminded of the

Coaches Corner 

...Assistant athletic director who encourages students 
as well as athletes to do their best 

By Matt WiUp 

Sports Writer 

Coach Linda Fleischer has 
many responsibilities at Dela- 
ware Valley College. In addi- 
tion to being the assistant ath- 
letic director she is the commu- 
nity coordinator for Wolfson 
Hall and the coach of the field 
hockey and Softball teams. Her 
coaching duties have her in- 
volved in recmiting for both 

It is the Softball and field 
hockey players who first have 
the pleasure of meeting and 
working with Linda Fleischer. 
Reischer was appointed to the 
head coaching position for both 
teams on August 20. 19W. by 
head athletic director Frank 
Wolfgang. Her coaching abili- 
ties came into play on the field 
hockey field in the fall of 1990. 
Field hockey was something 
new for Coach Reischer. The 
young coach had played only 
two years of field hockey in her 
hometown of Mt. Laurel, NJ, 
for Lenape High School. TTie 
Aggie's field hockey team has 

years as a result of Coach 
Fleischer's efforts. 

Many players are very pleased 
with Coach Reischer's coach- 
ing style. "Coach Fleischer isn't 
just your everyday coach. She 
complements discipline on the 
field with an honest openness 
that allows us, not only to call 
her a great coach, but also a 
friend," commented Charlene 
Tokhcini, amembcrof the field 
hockey squad. 

Obviously the team is improv- 
ing as far as the record is con- 
cerned and as a team. With a lot 
ofyoung players reluming, it is 
most likely that the team will 
continue to improve. 

Softball, on the other hand, is 
something that came natural to 
Linda ncischcr. Her knowl- 
edge improved during her four 
years of play at Lenape High 
School. She then played an- 
other four years of softball at 
Philadelphia College of Tex- 
tiles and Science. "I will never 
forget how I was a part of a 
turning point of a losing pro- 
gram, but turned it into a win- 
ning one. ( for the Textiles soft- 
ball team)," Reischer replied. 

She has had some good, solid 
experience throughout her ca- 
reer in softball. It has carried on 
into her coaching of the U^y 
Aggie's softball. 

The team has been improving 

over the past three years since 
Reischerhas been coaching. Her 
coaching style is very easy and 
as she stated. "If you have stu- 
dent athletes who know what to 
do and work hanj at it. then good 
coaching will follow." 

The players from the softball 
team have very positive things 
to say about their coach. "We 
don't look at her as just acoach. 
but as one of the players that 
relates to us on a personal ba- 
sis." commented Kelly Sciss. 
captain of the softball team. 

When it comes to Reischer's 

rule book, education comes 
first. Fleischer says, "The stu- 
dents should have just as good 
a game in the classroom as 
they do on the field." Coach 
Fleischer's student athletes 
believe and follow in her theo- 

With all the responsibilities 
that Coach Reischer hason her 
shoulders, you would think that 
they were burdensome to her. 
On the other hand, Reischer 
feels that being able to handle 
these tasks will put a positive 
sparic into her ftiture.

Vaulting is a popular sport 
in Europe, and its popularity 
is growing in the United 
States. Vaulting is actually 
gymnastics performed on a 
moving horse. Tlw horse is 
typically longed in a circle, 
but may run free in an en- 
closed area in circus acts and 
stunt shows. The vaulter, 
then, performs a series of in- 
tricate gymnastic maneuvers 
while the horse is moving in 
its circle. 

Vaulting can be used to 
improve any rider. It is espe- 
cially useful for beginners 
because a surcingle with two 
handles is used. This helps 
instill confKtence. It makes 
riding safer by providing 
strength, flexibility, balance, 
and a better understanding of 
the horse. Developing mid- 
section muscles prevents falls 
if a horse should bolt or 
swerve sharply. Supple rid- 
ers are less likely to break 
bones in a fall because their 
muscles and tendons can bet- 
ter tolerate the force of im- 
pact. In other words, if 
muscles itsist a range of mo- 

tion, due to lack of flexibility, 
chances of breaking bones in- 
creases. Exercises requiring 
equilibrium of weight, such as 
the basic seat, the flag, and the 
stand (shown in diagram), 
achieve greater safety by im- 
proving balance. 

Vaulting at DVC began in 
1990, and is taught by Lynne 
Willoughby, assistant direaor 
of Equine Science. The DVC 
Vaulters arc: juniors-Joanne 
Stagliano. Elizabeth Eg^inton, 
Katheryn Flynn. sojrfiomore- 
Debbie Bloom, and freshmen- 
Noelle Carroll, and Katherine 
Kane. On A-Day, a vaulting 
demonstration was given by 
Equine Science students. Many 
hours of practice were ccmtrib- 

uted by the group, and it paid 
off in a near-perfect exhibition. 
A vaulting clinic is being 
planned for September 1993. 
It will be open to anyone, and 
will include instruction for all

Wagner signs with Eagles 

By Charlotte Walker 

Sports Editor 

Sieve Wagner who has been a 
common sight on the Delaware 
Valley Coliege football field for 
the past 4 years has just recently 
signed a one-year free-agent con- 
tract with the Philadelphia Eagles. 
The Souderton High School 
graduate has started in all 40games 
of his DVC football career at right 

For the 1992 co-captain, this is 
Steve's chance to make the Na- 
tional Football League (NFL). As 
he stated, "I've got my shot and 
Vm looking forward to the oppor- 
tunity and making the team." If 
successful, Wagner will also join 
the ranks of the few NCAA Divi- 
sion III players who have been 
able 10 earn spots in the NFL. 

Wagner graduated from Dela- 
ware Valley in December with a 
Bachelor of Science degree in 
Business Administration. 

Wagner, the 6-foot-9-inch. 325 
pound offensive lineman has been 
twk:e named a pre-season All- 
American by College Football 
Preview Magazine. This year he 
was joined on the All-American 
list with fellow Aggie co-captain, 
linebacker Darren Bethke and de- 
fensive end Bill Maynard. 

TTiere were five teams that 
showed interest in signing Wag- 
ner wkh the Seattle Seahawks 
and the Philadelphia Eagles be- 
ing the most interested. 

The offensive liiw coach of the 
Eagles, Bill Muir, was an assis- 

tant coach at Delaware Val- 
ley for two years (1966-67). 
He also played Division III 
football at Susquehanna Uni- 

Wagner stated, "Coach 
Muir is one of the main rea- 
sons why I chose the Eagles. 
He called me before the draft 
and told me he was inter- 
ested. I felt that I would get 
my best shot with him." 

Steve said that one of his 
reasons for deciding to go 
with the Eagles is because, 
"Philadelphia is a great or- 
ganization to join." 

The Aggies under Coach 
Bedesem used a wishbone 
offense which Steve had 
played forthrceofhis4 years 
at Del Val. In his senior 
year, Wagner had to adjust 
to a new style of offense that 
involves nnore pass-blocking 
situations. In addition (here 
was the adjustment to a new 
coach. Bill Manlove. 

Coach Manlove stated, 
"Steve worked vwy hard this 
past season, particularly m his 
pass blocking and has ccmtinued 
to work in the off-season to im- 
prove himself physically and I'm 
certainly pleased he is getting an 

Coach Manlove has seen his 
Division III players have chances 
at the NFL before. More than 20 
of his former players at Widener 
University had tryouts with NFL 

8t*v« Wagn«r playing for ttM Aggl** 

Shoes" Johnson and Joe Fields, 
who both stayed in the NFL for 
14-year careers. 

Wagner is the first Aggie in 12 
years to sign a free-agent contract 
with an NFL team. Chuck Alpu- 
che, was the last Aggie playo* to 
sign with a NFL team. He signed 
with the Detroit Lions in May of 
1981 but did not make the team. 
The last Delaware Valley gradu- 
teams. Two of his players who ates to play in the NFL were Bill 
were drafted were Bill "White and T«l Cottrell. Bill who was a 

1966 graduate, was drafted 
by the Lions and stayed with 
the Lions for many years at 
the center position. Ted who 
was a 1969 graduate, was 
drafted by the Atlanta Fal- 
cons and played there for 
two seasons as a linebacker. 
He is currently an assistant 
coach with the Phoenix Car- 

Steve was the recipient of 
the team's Sam Rudley '08 
Memorial Award as Out- 
standing Offensive Lineman 
in 1990 and 1991. For 1992 
he was honored with the 
Rosner N. Triol Award for 
Leadership and Sportsman- 
ship. In 1991, Wagner was 
named a Middle Atlantic 
Conference (MAC) Honor- 
able Mention All-Star as he 
was a steadfast leader of the 
offensive line helping Del 
Val finish second in team 

In 1992 Wagner received 
the Doylestown Moose 
Lodge DVC Player of the 
Week award for the Homecom- 
ing victory against Albright Col- 

Steve also saw action on the 
defensive side of the ball for goal 
line situations. He had an impor- 
tant fumble recovery in the game 
against Wesley College. As the 
Wesley Wolverines were driving 
down the field in a very impor- 
tant possession they drove all the 
way to the I yd. line, when they 
fumbled the ball and it was re- 

wjva-ed by Steve Wagner. This 
was kite in the giune that resulted 
in a win 30-29 with the game 
winning field goal in the last 8 

The Eagles are trying to rebuild 
themselves almost in the same 
way that the Aggies are still try- 
ing to rebuild. Coach Mank)ve is 
still looking to make changes to 
revitalize the team and to bring 
the team to its first winning sea- 
son since the 6-4 record of the 
1985 squad. 

The Del Val Aggies have a 
promising future and as Coach 
Manlove has been known to say, 
"1 felt we played with a lot of 
heart." That is the perfect way to 
sum up the entire 1992 season. 

When remembering senior 
Steve Wagner, Coach Manlove 
sta'cd. "A 'big man' in our 
program's success as well as 
ph\sically. Steve plays some de- 
fensively as well as being a stal- 
wart offensive tackle. He has a 
possible pro future with contin- 
ued improvement." 

Steve reported to the Eagles' 
mini-campon Thursday, April 29 
and will now use his skills and 
size to try to become a regular 
member of the Eagles football 
team to appear every Sunday in 
the Fall. So. watch for Steve 
Wagner to show up in the offen- 
sive line of the Philadelphia 
Eagles. He will always be re- 
membered as the big #75 who 
lowered over everyone else of

Dear Kat, 

You have been an utteily spiffy, way-far out, cool kind of 
chick. We have been often entertained by your companions, 
especially Max and Grady. Please don't forget us and all of our 
many adventures: sicking Grady on us while wc were sunning, 
waking up much too early trying to figure out if class was 
cancelled due to snow, and last but not least, our most spectacular 
adventure to H.K. Jack's v^n we drooled over Armani Man. 
What an evening. 

We apologize for the times we've awakened you when we 
were slightly inebriated. Please forgive us. Always remember 
that you are very snazzy. Please don't forget about us; you are 
always welcome in our room. 

Take care of yourself. We wish you much happiness and 
success in your future endeavors. All the best to you.

A Tribute to Paul and Tina 

As a freshman, in the later part of my first semester at DVC, I was 
approached by two individuals, while sitting the "old" Caesar's Pub. 
Somehow they managed to convince me into doing some "tempo- 
rary" work on a very young, and somewhat unorthodox newspaper 
called the "Ram Pages'*. 

After a period of time, I saw my work become more permanent, as 
I watched these two peo{^ start K> weave together the material for 
the future Ram Pages. For the better part of that year I was a witness 
to a an all sort of evolution from a pamphlet-like collection of (Kipers 
to a real, flesh and blood newsprint. 

Now, as 1 x& them graduate, and the paper continue to grow. I as 
well as my fellow staff members, have been privileged, to assist this 
new organization in it*s development. 

To Paul Schneider and Tma Demenczuk: The current Ram Pages 
staff just wanted to say thank you one last time. We greatly 
appreciate alt of the "blood, sMtat, and tears" you and the other 
founding members, (i.e. Bruce Eaton, fomier Associate Editor), 
have put into this student newspaper. We would also like to wish you 
the bcsL of luck in your f\iture endeavors. 

Tim Vogt 8l The Rest of the Ram Pages Crew 


Good Luck in your new life. 
Thanks for all your times of listening to my 
problems. I'll never fbiget you! 

Yo. King and Queen of RamPages. 

IthasbeenpieetycooL Hope all goes well 
after you graduate. Have great weddings and 
enjoy happiness. Your in the hobby. 

Kevin Scopa 


Good-bye chocolate toes! Good Luck in 
everything you do!! Be happy! 

To Paul and Tma, 

We would like to thank 
you for all your hard woric and 
dedication in making Ram 
Pages, the quality publication 
it has become. It is our desire 
to continue in the tradition you 
have established. 

Paul (Tlie NYC Driver) and Tma. 

A freshman newspaper editoi?! 
Thanks for giving me a shot I wont let 
down your expectations. 

Good luck in die Future 


Business Students 

By Paul Schneider 


Five teams consisting of 
Delaware Valley College 
(DVC) business students rep- 
resented DVC in acompetition 
of intellect against 17 other 
colleges and universities. In 
the dawning hours of the Sat- 
urday of A- Day weekend the 
accounting, management, 
small business, marketing, and 
human relations teams set out 
in a rented yellow school bus 
for ihe County College of 
Morris in North Jersey. When 
they arrived every team was 
ready to begin the Fourteenth 
Annual Dean's Trophy Com- 
petition, The anticipation of 
what lay ahead was strong since 
this was the first time DVC 
was fully represented in ever>' 

During the previous two 
weeks the teams had spent 
many hours preparing their 
strategies for {\k case they 
would present. The cases were 
interesting in that they left a 
great deal of room for creativ- 
ity. The competition is a two 
phase event. The first phase 
involves a presentation to a 
three judge panel of the prob- 
lem and solutions to that prob- 
lem for the case tlKy h^ pre- 
pared. Uponconclusionoftheir 
presentation they must then be 
able to defend their position 
while they field questions from 
the judges. In the second phase 
the team is hancted a single 
question that is relevant to the 
original case. The difference is

people guessed, it was our very 
own Dr. Richard Ziemer. Con- 
gratulations to Cindy!! She will 
be receiving a certificate for a 
free mini personalized pizza from 
Pete's curtsey of the Ram Pages. 

Since this is the last issue of the 
Ram Pages for this semester, we 
will not feature a baby in this 
issue, (we don't want to keep you 
in suspense all summer! ! ) So look 
for the mystery babies to reappear 
nextsemesterl! Until then, have a 
great break and we will see you 
all again in the fall!!

DVC's overall results were a 
fifth place out of 1 1 colleges. 
answer sessions, the manage- 
ment team walked away wjth a 
third place tit)phy in their divi- 
sion. Although the results were 
not outstanding, the team mem- 
bers felt the experience of mak- 
ing presentations to a commit- 
tee was invaluable. "Now that 
we know what to expect. DVC 
should be able to clean up next 
year". commented Ron Trom- 
bino. a member of the human 
relations team. The purpose of 

this type of competition is to 
expose business students to 
what some of the real world is 
like. Paula Rogers of the man- 
agement team said. "It forces 
students to look away from 
standardized tests and text 
books and to face (real people) 
who judge the quality of your 
thoughts and ideas." 

All the teams would like to 
express their appreciation to 
their advisors who assisted 
them in preparing for the com- 
petition. A special thanks goes 
out to Mr, Christ from the mar- 
keting team for his support and 
backing, especially in rel- 
evance to the second phase.

Coach Rush has run her sum- 
mer basketball camp at DVC 
sirKe 1982. The program pays 
particular attention to the per- 
sonal growth and development 
ofyoung women on aiKloff the 
basketball court Since swim- 
ming is incorporated into the 
daily program at the other two 
camp sites, (The State Univer- 
sity of New York at Oneonta, 
and Swarthmore College) FSI 
had asked DVC in the past if a 
pool would ever be installed 
for use in the progr^un, but the 
funds were never available. 

According to Paul 
Schatschneider, the FSI pro- 
gram is easy to manage while 
provkling a relatively high rate 
of retuni and guaranteed cash 
flow during DVC's worst cash 
flow months. Schatschneider 
states, "No other summer pro- 
grams have appeared that even 
come within a few percent of 
FSI's gross income." 

Schatschneider said that 
DVC students would be able to 
use the pool Friday thru Sun- 
day from mid June to mid Au- 
gust while the camp is; here, 
provided DVC can fmd some- 
one from work study with 
proper lifeguard training.

Course scheduling explored 
Delaware Valley College 


By Tina Demenczuk, Jerry Stile$, and Frank Ketschek 

Students in a wide variety of ma- 
jors at Delaware Valley College 
(DVC) are experiencing similar prob- 
lems with courses, scheduling, and 
cun"icula. The addition of more 
courses and a change in required 
courses, as well as increasing the 
number of faculty members could 
help solve many of the conflicts. 

A campus survey of smdents and 
faculty was conducted during the 
week of April 19th. Tlte venture was 
undertaken by three students cur- 
rently attending DVC to explore the 
cause of class conflicts, selections, 
and scheduling, and to determine 
which particular majors were most 

There were two surveys distrib- 
uted, one for faculty members and 
the other for students. Both con- 
sisted of eight questions with the 
opportunity for explanations and 
suggestions for solutions. The stu- 
dent questions were designed to de-

Commuter Representative 

I would like to ask the commuters who have not yet taken the time to fill 

out the SAC Commuter Survey, to take a couple of minutes and do so now. 
I 'm sure your suggestions will be greatly appreciated, and possibly be able 
to impact the type of programming for next year. Please take any 
completed surveys to the Student Life office located on the second floor of 
the Student Center. 

A big thank you to the commuters who cooperated in giving me their 
comments and suggestions throughout the past year. We can only

"M^^ the g§me is on the tine it's 

lar questions. Tlieywere also asked 
to explain the scheduling process 
of their departments. To complete 
the investigation, Bob Moran, from 
the registrars office was asked to 
explain his viewpoint on the entire 
scheduling process. 

Overall, the sur\'ey did show that 
there is a problem with scheduling 
at DVC, although some of the re- 
sponses to a couple of questions 
were divided 50/50 (See tables la 
and lb below). Almost 3/4 of the 
students sur\'eyed said they had 
difficulty registering due to: 
•classes filling quickly ♦insuffi- 
cient number of sections offered 
*time conflicts 

Almost 58% said their major does 
not offer enough courses each se- 
mester, some courses are only of- 
fered in the spring or fall, or every 
other year. Exactly 3/4 of the stu- 
dents surveyed said that not enough 
courses are available to accommo- 
date the increase in student popula- 

Of the teachers surveyed, 92% 
said their curriculum area offers an 
abundance of courses each semes- 
ter with the opportunity to special- 
ize, however they maitioned that 

more sections should be offered 
with fewer smdents. About 62% 
said they experience difficulty reg- 
istering students due to: *time con- 
flicts with other courses, especially 
with the transfer students and 
the upper level classes that include 
specializations *courses not offered 
every semesto" *not enough courses 
to meet credit requirements 
Half of the teachers surveyed said 
that there is not enough courses, or 
course sections offered each year to 
accommodate the increases in stu- 
dent population. One teacher com- 
mented that. "We frequently have 
students unable to complete their 
course work in 4 years because of 
closed sections." 
Table la:

enough courses each semester?

lions of each course available each

* Not all percentages equal one hun- 
dred. Some of the people surveyed did 
not answer all of the questions. 

Although all majors are experi- 
encing conflicts in one area or an- 
other, the majors that seem to be 
having the most problems are En- 
glish, Education, and Small Ani- 
mal Science. 

Some of the recommendations 
obtained from the sur\'ey included: 
hiring more teachers and offering 
more sections, more efficient plan- 
ning in the registrars office, better 
communication between studoits 
and ^visors, offering all classes 
every semester, open night classes 
for day students in majors that do 
not offer this, offer independent 

study courses for all majors, and 
eliminate classes with low enroll- 
ment and introduce new classes. 

Mr. Moran said that the entire 
scheduling process has recently 
been re-evaluated due to the pro- 
jected increase in student popula- 
tion. The college is currently woric- 
ing on a network to tie all comput- 
ers into a mainframe. He believes 
this will accelerate the scheduling 
process as well as allow him to 
alleviate conflicts quicker. Mr. 
Moran stated that the departments 
are more willing to add new sec- 
tions than in the past, however, 
there is a shortage of teachers and 
classrooms. On one hand, the teach- 
ers are oxcrloaded with exu^a classes 
10 accommodate the influx of new 
students, and on the other hand, 
there is often not enough students 
to validate opening new sortions. 

When compared to Beaver Col- 
lege and Ursinus, both are private 
schools. DVC is not unique. These 
other colleges also experience 
scheduling difficulties, however, 
they have the extra classrooms and 
teachers to add new classes and 
sections. Also, these colleges have 
the liberal arts department to sup- 
port majors such as English and 
Education. DVC is a "science" 
college and does not wiuit to be 
considered a liberal arts college. 

If more teachers are hired and 
more courses are offered, then there 
is a n^ for more classrooms and 
new buildings. The problem hoe is 

tlK lack of availaUe land to con- 
struct the new buildings and the 
limited funding. 

Dr. Allison, Biology Department 
Chairmen, stat^ that they are al- 
lowing the interchange of fresh- 
men, sophomore, aid junior classes. 
Students can take freshmen classes 
in their sophomore years and like- 
wise sophomores can lake fresh- 
men or junior classes. This espe- 
cially benefits transfer students who 
need to make up classes lost due to 
the transfer. 

Mr. Moran stressed the fact that 
DVC is a "smair private college 
which is the reason that mmy stu- 
dents choose to enrol! here. DVC 
does not want to become a large 
state college, therefore, adminis- 
trators eventually plan to regulate 
the amount of new students in order 
to maintain the private school qual- 

Although finding more classroom 
space and constructing new build- 
ings is presently not feasible, there 
are a couple of solutions that may 
help to eliminate many of the im- 
mediate conflicts. 

1. Schedule some day class sec- 
tions during evening hours. This 

would open-up day time hours and 
classroom space which in turn 
would make room for new courses/ 
sections and faculty. 

2. Allow full time day students to 
enroll in night classes. Some ma- 
jors do not permit day students to 
take evening classes. Students 
would be able to take all of the 
classes neededfor graduation. This 
would also alleviate many time con- 

3. Require that all majors offer in- 
dependent study courses. Indepen- 
dent study allows seniors to make 
1 -3 credits and fill requirements not 
offered by DVC. 

The main problem with the academic 
cuniculum at DVC is the regularity of 
class offerings. Courses are presently 
offered on a "as need basis" rather than 
on a regular schedule. A long range 
demographic study of the population 
should be conducted. The study would 
help the Dean of Academic affairs, the 
Registrar, and Department Chair 
people become more fully aware of 
courses the students in each mapr need 
and w nt. Based on these findings, 
hire a Jtional pan time and full time 
instructors to help supplement the 
department's staff to increase teaching 
options and course selections, "niis is 
the most costly long temt solution, 
however this would greatly increase a 
department's flexibility and alk)w ex- 
isting depamnent instnjctors to con- 
centrate (HI their area's of expertise 
rather than teaching unfamiliar mate-

A new look for Security - officers on bicycles. Through a 
generous donatim of funds from Student Government jmd addi- 
tional funds garnered through the efforts of Paul Schatschneider, 
two mountain bikes were purchased, along with the necessary 
helmets and locks for a pilot program for a Security bike patrol. 
Initial reaction from students, faculty and administration has all 
been positive. Officers are highly visible and have tl^ capability 
of reaching areas quickly that are inaccessible to cars. Also, 
they're operated solely by "person-power", there's no fiKl usage, 
no ozone depletion, no dejX'eciation, and plenty of exercise! 
While inclement weather will occasionally curtail its use, the 
bike patrol will be a permanent part of our operations. These 
patrols will not be in place of Security mobile and foot paurols but 
will be in addition to those regular procedures. 

Welcome to our new Security Officer, Joseph Calogero on the 1 st

Blood Drive 


By Richard "Jcmtie" Haddon 

Vice President of Fellowship Blood Drive Coordination 

The blood drive on April 20, 1993 was run by the American 
Red Cross, and coordinated on campus by Al[^a Phi Omega 
( APO) the National Service Fraternity. The drive was dedicated 
in honor of Mr. Joseph Fulcoly. Some numbers of comparison: 

February 10 

70 sign ups 

111 show ups 
92 actual donors 

April 20 

186 sign ups 

143 show ups 
120 actual donors 

Our increase in numbers can be attributed towards the hard 
woric of all the APO Brothers. Without them this drive could 
never have come together so well. We also owe Erma Martin 
and her resources for the coordination of publicity towards the 
faculty and staff departments. Of course without the 120 very 
special people and the guidance of the Red Cross' Kimberiy 
Boland we would have been unsuccessful. Thank you.

Preceding A-Day. the April 
20th "D-Day" at Delaware Val- 
ley College was a huge suc- 
cess, thanks to the 138 indi- 
viduals who came out to donate 
their pint of life-saving blood. 
The DONOR DAY Blood Drive 
was held in honor of the late 
Josefrfi E. Fulcoly, Jr., who waas 
a frequent recipient of blood 
transfusions. One hundred and 
twenty pints of blood were col- 
lected on Tuesday, and twenty- 
one of those participants were 
first-time donors. 

Thanks to the leadership of 
Jamie Haddon, Justin Lawhead, 
the Resident Assistants, Alpha 
Phi Omega, and our faithful 
donors, 480 people will have a 
second chance at life. The child 
who was caught in a house fire 
with third degree bums over 
80% of his body thanks you. 

The man who just learned that 
he has adult leukemia can not 
thank you enough. The little 
giri who needs a blood transfu- 
sion every month of her life will 
never be aUeto repay your kind- 
ness. And the American Red 
Cross, who serves 94 area hos-

Endometriosis can ruin 
college experience 

By Mary Lou BaUweg 

Endometriosis Association 

"I felt SO different from my 
friends. Because I was in so 
much pain all the time. I didn't 
have the same type of college 
experience they did. They were 
focusing on college, careers and 
achieving their goals, and I was 
too sick to even think about 
studying for my classes. 

Sarah Hillmeit was a sopho- 
more at Marquette University 
in Milwaukee when she staited 
having more painful periods. 
Her family physician told her it 
was just "female problems." But 
what started out as tolerable 
became, by her junior year, al- 
most three weeks of pain every 
month. Even with a lighter 
class load, she watched in dis- 
may as her grade-point dropped. 

Sarah was eventually diag- 
nosed with endometriosis, a 
puzzling disease that affects 
women in their reproductive 
years. Tissue normally found 
in the uterus is also found an- 
other areas such as on the ova- 
ries, the bowel and the bladder, 
causing internal bleeding. Scar 
tissue, inflammation and oilier 
problems then develop which 
can cause severe pain, infertil- 
ity and even bowel obstruction. 
An estimated 5 million women 
- from teenagers to college stu- 
dents to middle-aged women 
suffer from this disease in the 
United States alone. As Sarah 
found out, endometriosis is not 
an easy disease to diagnose or 
treat. Continuously fighting 
pain left her too exhausted to 

attend classes or her part-time 
job. One physician suggested 
she get psychological counsel- 
ing; another told her that her 
two emergency trips to the hos- 
pital in the middle of the night 
because she was literally 
doubled over in pain, was not 
that unusual. 

"All too often women are told 
that monthly pain is acceptable; 
it's part of being female," says 
Mary Lou Ballweg, executive 
director of the Intemational En- 
dometriosis Association Endo- 
metriosis Awareness. "We have 
to break through the stigma that 
still surrounds menstruation." 
Ballweg continues. "We 
shouldn't be reluctant to talk 
about it, and we must be unwill- 
ing to accept pain as nomial. 

According to Ballweg, col- 
lege-age women often don't 
want to accejX the fact that things 
can go wrong with their bodies. 
But statistics show that 4 1 % of 
diagnosed sufferers had symp- 
toms of endometriosis before 
age 20. "Women of any age 
have to be assertive and persis- 
tent to get a diagnosis so they 
can start exploring treamient op- 

If pain is continual, interfer- 
ing with classes and everyday 
activities, women may have to 
see more than one doctor before 
getting answers to their ques- 
tions or before getting a definite 
diagnosis. Sarah went to one 
physician after anotlKr before 
fmding one who had experi- 
ence dealing with endometrio- 
sis and who didn't bnish off her 
complaints. "It was terrible; I 

often felt so lost and misun- 

Some women with endo- 
metriosis may experience 
fairiy mild problems, not even 
realizing they have it until they 
have difficulty becoming 
pregnant. For others, how- 
ever, it can be a debilitating, 
fnistrating disease. 

"Women with endometrio- 
sis need to be assertive," says 
Ballweg. "because the road to 
diagnosis can be long and frus- 
trating." She recommends 
women be familiar with the 
most common symptoms: 
chronic pelvic pain, painful 
periods, pain during sex, on- 
going fatigue, painful urina- 
tion or bowel movements dur- 
ing periods, and extensive al- 

"College students in particu- 
lar." she maintains, "should 
be able to look ahead to bright, 
exciting futures instead ofhav- 
ing a disease like endometrio- 
sis slow them down." 

Sarah Hillmert still struggles 
with endometriosis, at times 
wishing she'd pushed harder 
eartier for answers and solu- 
tions. But she continues to 
pursue treatment options and 
has made life-style changes to 
help her cope with the disease 
and allow her to enjoy her 
favorite pursuits.

Dear A-Day Committee: 

Oice again, A- Day seemed to me to be a tremendous 
success. My sincere compliments and gratitude to everyone 
who worked and contributed to this most special event. I may 
be a poor judge, but I always feel the A-Day just completed is 
the "best one ever." you are to be especially praised for picking 
two such nice weatherdays. I hope you arc all satisfied (1 know 
you are all tired!) and that the proceeds help all the clubs and 
other participating groups stock their coffers to the brim. 

On a more personal note. I would like to say how surprised 
I was and how much it meant to me to be included as a special 
"thank You" item in the A-Day Program. I believe there are 
many who probably deserve this more than I. but I humbly and 
graciously accept it in the name of all the faculty and staff who 
contribute to what you. the students of Delaware Valley 
College have accomplished 

Once again, congratulations on a job well done and I hope to 
see all of you at many A-Days to come. 

Craig Hill. Ph.D. 
Dean of the College 

Record breaking crowds were attracted by the Spring event 
that neariy everyone in this region annually anticipates — A- 
Day. What a wonderful exhibition of our students' work was 
presented to our neighbors, friends and alumni! 

You are to be congratulated, thanked and recognized for 
your outstanding effort in making this year's A-Day the best 
yet. This truly cooperative project involving students, staff, 
faculty and administrators shows Del Val at its best. Getting 
two d|p of sunshine, rather than our usual one, might be 
attribwl to the helpof the person to whom this year's A-Day 
was dodttcabed, Joe Fulcoly. 

Thank You All! 
George West 

A look back at A-Day 

By Thomas Albert* 

Staff Writer 

The tents were pitched and the booths were prepared. The campus had been "polished" the 
week before and there were people out doing last minute cleaning. Even the animals had been 
groomed and preened. There was even a slight hint of anxiety. What was all the fiiss about- 
why, A-Day of course. 

On Saturday and Sunday April 24-25, Delaware Valley College(DVC) celebrated it's 45th 
A-Day. A-Day was initiated in 1948 by the late Mr. Joseph E. Fulcoly, Jr. Mr, Fulcoly, was 
the advisor to the A-Day committee. However, due to Fulcoly 's unfortunate death, Mr. Robert 
Sauer Director of Financial Aid assumed the role of advisor. A-Day allows the various DVC 
clubs to "stmt their stuff." 

In response to A-Day 1993, Mr. Sauer said, "I've been involved in A-Days since 1962. 1 think 
this was the best handled A-Day and I credit that to the students who organized it."

Major swell expected in 1993 
incoming Freshman Class 

By Ben Press 


The latest figures have been 
rqx)ited forttie incoming Fresh- 
man Qass, and it appears Dela- 
ware Valley College (DVQ is 
going to have a record atten- 
dance this fall s^nester. 

Will this put a strain on class- 
room and donnitoiy capacities? 
Not according to Stef^en Ze- 
nko, Dilator of Admissions. 
"We arc right on target for the 
number we were looking 

up in preceding years." Mr. 
Zenko told Ram Pages that 
there are 1,550 applicants to 
DVC this year, versus 1,460 
last year. At {hvss time, tl^re 
were 500 deposits at the 
Registrar's Office. 

Mr. Zenko does not feel the 
College will have difficulty in 
dealing with the overload of 
students expected to attend 
DVC. "It's tnie that housing 
for...eniollment has been going and classrooms will be at full 

capacity," but not all of the 
applicants are expected to ac- 
tually enroll. For example, they 
may not receive their expected 
financial aid, or may choose 
other schools. Also, current 
students may leave or transfer 
to other schools, for these rca- 
sOTis; "the College feels it can 
handle the number of appli- 

In response to a statement 
implyii^ the number of new 

students may cause a housing 
shortage, Zenko replied "We 
are watching that very carefully." 
There had been speculation that 
the College would seek off -cam- 
pus housing for Seniors, but ac- 
cording to theOffice of Residence 
Life, there is no mith to that. 
Residence Life posts houses and 
apartments available to students 
from private landlords, but DVC 
itself does not have off campus 
housing available.

Spotlight On : DVCs rich heritage 

By Tina Demenczuk '93 

Former Co-Editor-In-Chief 

The initial purpose of Rabbi 
Joseph Krauskopf founding this 
institution was to instruct Jew- 
ishboysinthedifferent branches 
of agriculture and teach them 
the theory and practice of farm- 
ing for a living. Mr. Krauskopf 
believed this would help the 
Jewish situation and enhance 
their economic and social fu- 

Mr. Jacob Tuck of Philadel- 
phia, a close friend of Kraus- 
kopf, was always interested in 
the welfare of Jewish inuni- 
grants and spoke widi Kraus- 
kopf about their social prob- 
lem. Mr. Tuck often advised 
the Rabbi to "Make farmers 
out of them ! " This stuck in his 
mind and after Tuck's death in 
1894, Krauskopf went abroad 
to investigate the concef*. 

Krauskopf took this idea and 
went to study the Jews in Rus- 
sia. There he met Count Leo 
Tolstoi, who made numerous 
demands for Jewish social re- 
forms. Together they visited 
the Jewish Agricultural School 
at Odessa which Tolstoi 
founded. Tolstoi showed 
Krauskopf how the boys were 
learning to woric tht land, but 
were limitedby the govemmait 
He suggested to Krauskopf to 
try and pull thousands of young 
people out of the cities, onto 
fertile land, and guide them so 
they could make a name for the 
Jewish people in his country. 

With Tolstoi's and Tuck's 
inspiring words, Krauskopf re- 
turned to his country, bought a 
100-arce farm and founded the 
National Farm School on April 
1 0, 1 896. It was dedicated on 
June 20, 1897. Following it's 
opening He rccor^idered his 

W»lconie to DeUmrar* VaUtyC^ag* 

original idea to provide for the 
welfare of just his people and 
decided to rencter this service to 
non-Jewish students as well. He 
realized thatthousarKls of people 
were leaving their farms to live 
in the alluring \itbm towns and 
cities to become industrial work- 
ers. He knew then that his 
country was in trouble and ag- 
riculture could attract people 
out of the cities and into tte 
country to live healthy and fi- 
nancially secure lives. 

In the begirming, land equip- 
ment and buildings were lim- 
ited, Krauskopf purchased the 
100-acre farm along with the 
homestead house, a spring 
house, which was remodeled 
for the first dairy, and a bam, 
for $10,000. After he raised a 
second $10,000, he had Pio- 
neer Hall builL This building 
contained the classrooms, li- 
brary, dining room, kitchen, 
laundry room, gymnasium , dor- 
mitories, office, and quarters 
for the Dean. He employed a 
faculty of two and enrolled 10 
students, graduating eight as 
the first class. Tlte whole school, 
the farm, buUding, furniture, 
and farm equipment totaled 
$30,000 in cost. 

The National Farm School 
provided a three year program 
combining academics and work 
experience. It remained at this 

stage through World War II. In 
1945, when the school became 
the National Farm School and 
Junior College, the academic 
program was reorganized and 
strengthened. As the a^jlied 
scioice became recognized it 
was necessary to further ex- 
pand. In 1 948 the program was 
transformed into a senior col- 
lege, approved by the State 
Council of Education, and the 
name was changed to the Na- 
tional Agriculmral College. 

James Worlc, a 1913 gradu- 
ate of the National Farm school, 
lead the growth after W.W.n. 
He added new programs in the 
Food Industry ,( 1 95 1 ), Biology 
& Chemistry (1958), and Busi- 
ness. The name of the school 
was also changed again to Dela- 
ware Valley College of Science 

and Agriculture in 1960. 

Many new majors have been 
added recently including Agri- 
business ( 1 983) and Computer 
Information Systems Manage- 
ment (1984). In 1987 a two- 
year Associate of Science de- 
gree in Equine Science and a 
two-year Associate of Science 
degree in Supervision Admin- 
istration & Management was 
added. The college also offers 
a Bachelor of Arts (tegree in 
English, Bachelor of Science 
degree in Mathematics and a 
Bachelor degree program in 
Criminal Justice Administra- 

In 1989 the Board of Tmst- 
ees approved the abbreviation 
of the College's name to Dela- 
ware Valley College.

Doylestown - 
a brief history 

By Bruce EiMion '93 

Former Features Editor 

The land on which Doyles- 
town is located was i»ir±ased 
by Jeremiah Langhome (XI Feb- 
maty 15, 1724 from the Free 
Society of Traders of Lx)ndcMi. 
Langhome 's 2,000-acre pur- 
chase increased his total land 
holdings to 5,200 acres in ^ 
Doylestown area. Jeremiidi 
Langhome's 5,200 acres cost 
$5,740 in 1724, 

Running tiirough this rural 
and densdy wooded land, raily 
26 miles from Philadclfrfiia, was 
one "great road". This road 
ran noithand south from Wilow 
Grove, then known as "Round 
Meadow", to Horsham. This 
road was extended through 
Langhome'slandinl723. The 
road was named Dyer's Road. 
Dyer's Road is present-day 

that oHmected the outlying ar- 
eas, it was on this road that 
Doylestown began. 
A second road was established 
in 1730. This road crossed 
Dyer's Road on Jeremiah 
Langhome's land, forming the 
crossroads of present-day Main 
St. with East and West State 
Streets. During this civilizing 
process, Langhome sold some 
of his acreage to Josq^ Kirk- 
brid^ m 1729, including the 
crossroads acreage. Kiric- 
bridge, in turn, sold acreage to 
Edward Doyle. EdwK'd's- 
grandsoft, William i.DoyJj:, re-;. 
ceived the crossroads bequest 
and built the Doyle Tavern at 
his crossroads. Doyle was 
granted a license and opened 
the tavem for business in 1 745 . 
A village evolved around the 
Doyle Tavem and shortly after 
the American Revolution ttie 

Main St, Doylestown (sM map village became known as 
on pg.6). The establishmoit of Doylestown. Doylestowngrcw 
Dyer's Road was the primary and became the County Seat in 

catalyst to the founding and 
growth of modem-day Doyles- 
town. Inatime when travel was 
slow and treacherous and no 
significant waterway exited in 
the area; it was this "great road" 

1813. State and local business 
encouraged further growth. 
Doylestown continues to sup- 
port a thriving professional 
community, centered around the 
County Courthouse.

Popeye roams the streets of Doylestown

Ah, the smell of fresh morn- 
ing air, the glow of the grass 
.Popeye roaming the back 
streets of Doylestown. Popeye 
roaming the streets of Doyles- 
townyouask? Yes, Pi^ye, Beit 
and &nie, and miuiy other car- 
toon characters could be found 
in Delaware Valley College's 
H(xne(x>ming Parade. 

••Cartoons" was this year's 
theme as DVC put on one of its 
"biggest parades in years" ac- 
cording to Presidertt West be- 
fore the parade began. Along 
with the assortment of cartoon 
characters, the paracte featured 
this year's Homecoming court, 
floats, and fire tmcks and res- 
cue units from Colmar, Doyles- 
town, and Chalfont 

Mother Nature fnovided a 
wonderful day for the parade, 
hardly a doud in the sky and 
70(- degrees. Before the parade 
started, (xie could find individu- 
als from various lubs doing 
last secofKl detailing to cither 
their floats, cars, or trucks. 
Meanwhile, many were al ready 
lining Main Street in anticipa- 
tion of tt]£ festivities. 

As the intx:ession m le its 
way through town, the c rowd 
was greeted by a Doylestown 
police car with roll lightbar 
ablaze, one of Dvr's owti Se- 

curity cars, a fire tnidc with 
flashing lights and roaring si- 
rens, andasteadyflowof candy, 
DVC plastic cups, and Ram 
Pages Newspapers. All those

The tents were pitched and 
the booths were prq}ared. The 
campus had been "polished" 
the wedc before and there were 
people out doing last minute 
cleaning. Evoi the animals had 
been groomed aiul preened. 
There was even a slight hint of 
anxiety. What was all the fuss 
about? - Why, A-Day of course. 
On Saturday and Surxlay 
April 24-25, Delaware Valley 
CoUeee celebrated it's 45th A- 
Day. A-Day was initiated in 

1948 by the late Mr. Joseph E. 
Fulcoly, Jr., who was the advi- 
sor to the A-Day c(xnmittee. 
However, due to Fulcoly 's 
death, Mr. Robert Sauer, Di- 
rector ofFinancial Aid assumed 
the role of advisor. 

A-Day allows the various 
DVCclubs to "struttheir stuff ." 
In response to A-Day 1993, 
Mr. Sauer said, "I've been in- 
volved in A-Days since 1%2. I 
think this was the besthandl«i 
A-Day and I credit that to tte 
studoits who organized it" 

students take journey 
on the Exxon Valdez 

By Charlotte Walker 

Sports Editor 

On March 2nd Jack Reed 
spoke about the oil ^ill of the 
Exxon Valdezoccured in Prince 
William Sound on March 24, 
1989. The Biology Qub spon- 
sored tills cultural enrichment 
lecture. Mr. Reed is an adjunct 
professor here at DVC, who 
teaches Climatolo^. Com- 
mander I^ed, who has been in 
the Coast Guard for ahnost 20 
years, was stationed in Valdez, 
Alaska in 1989 and 1990. 

The 1 1 millioi gallon ^ill 
devastated an area of 1 500 miles 
in Alaska. The four year old 
spill is still the topic of heated 
discussicHi, because many me- 
dia reports have may been 
clouded by emoti(Hi. 
The environmentalists falsely 
claim that the spill would have 
been less damaging if the ship 
had a double lined hull, but a 
ship of that nature would have 
sunk to the bottom of Prince 
William Sound spilling 53 mil- 
lion gallons of cmde oil as com- 
pared to ttK 1 1 million gallons 

of oil that was actually spiled. 

The wildlife of Alaska was 
greatly affected by the oil ^ilL 
As Jade Reed stated, 'Tt is hor- 
rifying what oil does to wild- 
life." Some of the animals most 
harmed were: sea birds, sea 
lions, bald eagles, sea otters, 
puffins, and walrases. Three 
milli(xi dollars were spent to- 
tally to clean up the whole spUl. 
Exxon averaged 80,000 dollars 
per sea otter rescue. 

One of the main controver- 
sies surrounding the clean upof 
the siHll was >^et}»r or not to 
bum the oil off of tihe water arul 
the rocks. At first the state of 
Alaska allowed the oil to be 
burned, l»it it was quickly out- 
lawed because of the intense 
black smdce that was produced 

Since the oil could not be 
burned, the oil that was 
skimmed had to be placed into 
bags ^^Mdlwereput onto barges 
and taken to a landfill in Or- 


The radar system of the Exxon 
Valdez was inefficient, there- 
fore, leMng to tiie oil spill. 

The spill occurred after the 
Exxon Valdez loaded its tanks 
full of oil and was leaving from 
the 3,000 resident town of Val- 
dez. As the Exxon Valdez at- 
tempted to avoidthe icebergs of 
the Prince William Sound, it hit 
the Bligh Reef. As Mr. Reed 
stated, "If the radar system was 
stronger tiiey might have seen 
the reef." Tlie radar system is 
only an lulvisory md it will not 
prevent tiie tanker from sailing 
in an unsafe area. 

A process that was used ex- 
tensively to clean up the oil is 
knownasbiorem^ation. This 
process allowed Mother Na- 
ture and Exxon to work to- 
gether. In lMoremediati(Hi a 
bacteria eats the oil off of ttie 
rocks and the beaches. 

Mr. Reed cleared up many of 
the myths and ejq)lainedall sides 
of tlK issue. Wl^n placing 
blame forthe oil spill Jack Reed 
stated, "We are all guilty of the 
Exxon Valdez, we all want to 
drive our cars. It is not one 
persons fault"

The persistoit stonning and 
saturated ground made life dif- 
ficult for the equally persistent 
Pride and Polish volunteers. 
The numerous volunteers all 
had one thing in common, they 
had an important mission to 
accomplish. No matter what 
challen^nature ttuew atthem, 
the students and faculty knew 
that ttey would prevail. 

Despite the fact that it was 
pouring outside itt times., over 
four-hundred students, faculty 
and administrators participated 
in the fifth annual Pride and 
Polish Day on April 1, 1993. 
Pride and Polish Day began in 
1 989 to allow all Aggies to take 
a day mit of their busy sched- 
ules, get together on the same 
level, and clean the campus, 
inside and out in {separation 
for A-Day. 

As a result of tl^ rain, most 
of the "polish" jobs were done 
inside. These are just a few 

examples ofthe jobs done. The 
lounge in Beikowitz Hall was 
painted white withlKarts adorn- 
ing the windows. InWolfs(^ 
Han, some of the doors were 
painted to the occupant's speci- 
ficaticms. The choices of adorn- 
ment included a city skyline, a 
Harley/Davidson symbol, ^Bd 
the cartoon characters "Ren 
and Stimpy". 

The late Mr. Joseph P. Ful- 
coly Jr. was formeriy the chair- 
person of the Pride and Polish 
Day committee. Now, Mr. 
Robert Sauer, the director of 
financial aid is the chairperson 
of the committee. 

Finally a picnic, for all par- 
icipants brought a close to the 
day. It, unfortunately, had to 
be moved inside to the All Pur- 
pose Room because of the rain. 
Overall, the fifth annual Pride 
and Polish day was a huge suc- 
cess, even the rain failed to 
dampen the day.

Second Annual Monopoly Scholarship 
Tournament overwhelming success 

By Caryn Derr^ikutghtriy 

Staff Writer 

The Second Annual Mo- 
nopoly Toumamoit was one of 
the mostexciting events to (xnne 
to DVC this year. You may 
a^, what is so excitir^ about a 
bunch of people trying Mo- 
nopoly aU n^tit? Well, tte 
answer could be the outstand- 
ir^ buffet dinner t»cpared by 
the Wood Company, or maybe 
the fact ttiat tl^ grand prize, 
donated l^ the Franklin Mint, 
was the Official CoUector'sEdi- 
tion of M(»iqx)ly ( gold pieces 
and all) with a stand, which is 
valued at $790.00. 

The reason tile event was so 
successful was raising a sub- 
stantial sunount of money for 
the DVC Scholarship Program, 
but also because it doubled in 
size frran the previous year and 
gained a lot of publicity for tlK 

so DVC students filled their

There were twenty-five 
tables in tiie first round. After 
the Old of the round scores were 
tallied and the top winner from 

Derby Pie, strawberry short- 
cake, fudge, salt water taffy, 
and, of course, tea and coffee. 

After everyone had their fill, 
the winners proceeded to the 
final round. Tteie was a dras- 
tic change between the rounds. 
While die first round was loud 
and fun, the second round be- 
came very serious and q^iet. 

When all was said and done, 
the big winner, withover$ 14,00 
dollars in cash aiul assets, was 
Trevor Krill of DJS Electron- 
ics. When presented with the 
grand prize, he was obviously 
in shock. "Wow This is really 
awesome! ! Thanks a tot!", he 
said. The second place winner 
was a listener sponsored by 
WPST, Al Russell. He was 
awarded an assortment of 
Parker Brother games and a

The spoils here at DVC are 
all in a transitional stage. All of 
the teams are striving to achieve 
higher goals - to improve on 
last year's performances. The 
athletes here at DVC all de- 
serve a lot of credit for trying 
their best and being dedicated 
to their sports. 

Onthe subjectof sdiool ^irit, 
or tfie lack thereof, there has 
been litde consistency in ttie 
attendance of DVC sporting 

Sometimes the Meachers are 
iiill of people who are stomping 
their feet aiKl screaming to en- 
courage our players. A perfect 
examine of this occurred dur- 
ing the women's basketball 
game on January 19. This game 
saw the Lady Aggies defeat the 
Lady Monarchs of King's Col- 
lege* but not until douUe over- 
time was completed. It seemed 
like every time tiie victory was 
sealed for DVC tiie lead would 
be lost agaiiL In the end, the 
hometeamwasvictorious. Who 
is to say that the crowd didn't 
push the DVC girls to stay (m 
their game and to distract the 
opposing team. On the other 
hand there have been many 
games where the emptiness is 
overwiielming and almost in- 
sulting to our althetes. 

These athletes are students 
too and deserve to be respected 
bythestudentbody. Solet'stiy 
to foiget about the past - how 
things used to be - and try to 
build a future where the stu- 
dents take a more active part in 
the events that take i^ace here 
at DVC. Some night when 
there is a sporting event, come 
to the gym to see the athletes of 
DVC in action. Show scnne 
school spirit by su{^x)iting our 
sports teams. 

Another way to support DVC 
is by helping the RAMPAGES 
to iqxHt ^ events of the cam- 
pus - sports and otherwise. 
Things do not get done by magic 
- they can only be done by tiie 
work of the students! Articles, 
pictures, statistics, etc. do not 
appear in the paper without 
people to put them on these 
pages. If you want to see some- 
thing in this paper- YOU - must 
take the steps to become in- 
volved. That is the only way 
this newq)i4)er will be the best 
thatitcanbe. As the staff of the 
RAM PAGES always says, 
" Work constantly to improve 
the paper." 

Vaulting becomes a rising 
equestrian sport at DVC 

By Debbie Bloom 


Vaulting is a popular sport in 
Europe, and its popularity is 
growing in the United States. 
Vaulting atDVCbeganin 1990, 
and is taught by Lyrme Wil- 
lou^y, assistant director of 
Equine Scioice. Vaulting is 
actually gymnastics performed 
onamovinghorse. Thehorseis 
typically longed in a circle, but 
may run fiee in an enclosed 
area in dtcus acts and stunt 

Vaulting can be used to im- 
prove any rider. It is especially 
useful for beginners because a 
surcingle with two handles is 
used This helps instill confi- 
dence. It makes riding safer by

providing strength, flexiUlity, 
balance, and a better uruler- 
standit^ of the horse. Develop- 
ing midsecticnmusclesi»events 
falls if a horse should bolt or 
swerve sharply. Sui^le riders 

are less likely to break bones in 
a fall because their muscles and 
tendons can better tolerate the 
force of impact If muscles 
resist a range of motion, chie to 
lack of flexibility, chances of 

breaking bones increases. Ex- 
ercises requiring equilibrimn of 
weight, such as the basic seat, 
the flag, and the ^and (shown 
in diagrams), achieve greater 
safety by improving balance. 
On A-Day, a vaulting dem- 
onstration was given by Equine 
Science studoits. The demon- 
strators were: ^ors-Joaruie 
Stagliano, Elizabeth Eglinton, 
Katheryn Flyrm, sophomore- 
Debbie Bloom, and fneshmen- 
Noelle Carroll, arxl Katherine 
Kane. Many hours of practice 
were c(Hitributed by the group, 
and it paid off in a near-perfect 
exhiMtion. A vaulting clinic is 
being planned for September 
1993. It will be open to anyone, 
and will include instruction for 
all levels.

Preceding A-Day, the April 
20th "D-Day" at Delaware Val- 
ley College was a huge success, 
thanks to the 138 individuals who 
came out to donate their pint of 
life-saving blood. The DONOR 
DAY Blood Drive was held in 
honor of the late Joseph E Ful- 
cdy, Jr., who waas a frequent 
recipient of blood transfusions. 
One hundred and twenty pints of 
blood were collected on Tues- 
day, and twenty-one of those par- 
ticipants were Hrst-time donors. 

Thanks to the leadership of

Second Hand Smoke 

It's an issue again, 
nationally and here at DVC 

By Mame Sugarman 

Staff Writer 

How ironic! Just as the Ram 
Pages members were preiKired 
to write an article in favor of 
banning smoking in Caesar's 
Pub, Student Government 
members heard the cry, voted, 
and adopted a iwnsmoking 
policy for the Pub! 

After learning that students 
were having a hard time enjoy- 
ing their new Pub cuisuie. Stu- 
dent Government passed the 
law^to take effect immediately. 
Students finally became fed up 
with the dense cloud that 
danced in the air before it ze- 
roed in on unsuspecting iK)n- 
smoker's food. 

Even some of the smokers 
commented that they enjoy 
tlKir food better in a nonsmok- 
ing environment and preferred 
to smoke outside. 

Second hand smoke is not 
just armoying anymore, there 
is a more serious corx%m about 
environmental tobacco fumes 
to consider. 

Scientists have been strug- 
gling with the question of 
; whetlMr s«x)nd hand smoke is 
dangerous. In the past, scien- 
tists put foithno clear evidence 
supporting the claim. 

Recently, the Environmen- 
tal Protection Agency (EPA) 
reached a milestone when they 
produced conclusive evideL^e 
su(^rting the hypothesis that 
passive smoking was indeed 
causing detrimental health ef- 

fects in many segments of the 

A panel of outside scientists 
comprising the Indoor-Air 
Committee of the EPA's Sci- 
ence Advisory Board con- 
cluded that second haiKl smoke 
is a human carcinogen, possi- 
bly one of the most harmful in 
existence, next to asbestos. 

According to the Science 
Advisory BoanJ, 2,500to 3,000 
non-smokers die every year 
from lung cancer. Various au- 
tqpsies conducted that the same 
carcinogens found m smoker's 

lungs were also found m non- 
smokers lungs. 

When the backgrounds of the 
iKm-smokingvictuns were pro- 
cured, the majority had spcxises 
or other close family members 
who smoked. People who m- 
hale higher concentrations of 
smoke are at a greater risk. 

Lung cancer is not the only 
killer. Many researchers be- 
lieve tiiat environmental to- 
bacco smcdce also increases hear 
disease in Americans which 
adds an additional 35,000 
deaths per year. 

Environmental tobacco 
smoke is also linked to bron- 
chial problems, {Hieumcmia, 

and an iiu;reased amount of 
childhood asOima. 

Ackiitionally, people who do 
rK)t actually live with smokers 
are also at risk. EPA research- 
ers estimate that non-smokers 
in a smoke filled work envi- 
ronment experience a 20% to 
30% increase in the risk of 
developmg cancer. 

Designating non-smoking 
areas in restaurants or in the 
work place will not alleviate 
the problem. Many conterul 
for employers to separately 
ventilate the segregated areas 
for more efficient protection. 
In 1990, only 3 American 
towns banned smoking in res- 
taurants and workplaces. As a 
result of increased awarraiess, 
26 municipalities took the ini- 
tiative and banned smoking 
uidoors. This numbers contin- 
ues to uicrease. 

Obviously, tobacco com{Mi- 
nies are less than happy about 
these findings. They claim that 
the risk of cancer is relatively 
small for people who do not 
smoke and that more conclu- 
sive tests must be done. 

Anti-smoking groups are 
now on the rise and the results 
are showing. Caesar's Pub is a 
perfect example. TheStudem 
Goveniment members have 
closed tiie diapter on smoking 
here at DVC!

At the present time, it is still 
undecided wl^ther or not the

final decision will be made this 

No matter what the decision 
is, disciplinary action will be 
taken against any studoit acti- 
vating the alarm falsely. A 
minimum fine of $250.00 plus 
further actions will be enforced 
by the Dean of Students and

In case of a fire alarm, the

lock so smdents may exit

will begin this week, is set up 
so that when any emergency 
exit door is fully opened an 
alarm will sound for 15 sec- 
omls. Oncethe alarm goes off, 
security will be notified. 

The s«:ond i^hase, which is 
still undernegotiation, consists 
of having the alarm syston 
wired to tiie fire alarm switch 
board in tiie security office. 
The installationof tiienew sys- 
tem is causing many conflict- 
ing feelings, however. 

Some students have mixed 
reactions, "I think it's good 
because it will provide better 
safety for the female students, 
iHit despite its benefits, it still 
causes aninconvenience," said 
Suaime, a junior. Jen, also a 
junior, agrees with Suanne and 
says, *T like the extra security 
but it is inconvenient I wish 
they could have thought of a 
better way of installing it" 
Other dorm residents are dead 
against it! They do not like the 
idea of having to use the front 

When you think about it, the 
only inconvenient factor about 

the alarm system is tiie extra 
100 yards to walk to tiie froitt 
door. Mrs. Landis from Secu- 
rity explained, "The system is 
essentially a safety factor. You 
are giving up an alternate en- 
trance but gaining asecure £%1-

stall alarms in every dorm 
witiiin the next few years. 

200 dogs in Harieysville, tiie 
program visits children's hos- 
pitals as weU as nursing homes. 

Beckstead explained ti^ re- 
quirements necessary for a dog 
to be included in the program. 
Above all, tiie dog must be 
well socialized and able to be 
among people other than its 
owner. The dog must be at 
least one year old because "a 
pu(^y might be too rambunc- 
tious for an elderly or disabled 
person to keep up with." Tht 
dog must go tiirough obedi- 
ence training in the home. 
Later, the dog is exposed to 
various situations (large 
crowds, people in wheelchairs, 
people with walkers, and 
people making sudden move- 
moits) to test the animal ' s obe- 

"The testing discovert if the 
dog has any hidden aggres- 
sions of fears." said Beckstead. 

Wlien and if tiie animal satis- 
factorily completes the testing, 
it is registered with tiie Com- 
fort Caring Canines as an offi- 
cial therapy dog. The regis- 
tered dog receives ttie same 
rights as otfier service animals. 
For example, a therapy dog has 
the same right to public places 
and public transportation as a 
seeing eye, or hearing ear dog. 
The dog is also insured for one 
million dollars, in case a mis- 
hap does occur.

Highlights of 1992-93 

Pub metamorphoses 

... and becomes Caesar's Food Court 

By Mame Sugarman 

Staff Writer 
CoHirUmHotu by Tom Albert* 

The spring semester was wel- 
comed by a newly renovated 
Caesar's Fub in an effoit to 
modernize, andmeetthe grow- 
ing donands of the Delaware 
VaUey College (DVQ popu- 

Students wanted a more re- 
laxed atmos[diere than the din- 
ing hall could provide. Aplace 
where they could snack, so- 
cialize and purchase high qual- 
ity fast food. 

The renovation to the Pub 
has ma(te all this possible as 
well as allowing extended 
hours and, enhancing the lei- 
surely atmosphere. In addi- 
tion, these improvements have 
given the students the meal 
plan flexibility tbey desired. 

Mike Ward, a Food Commit- 
tee member agrees, "The Pub 
is a social place for people to 
hang out". 

Tt^se student demands were 
first explored by the student 
Food Committee in Septem- 
ber of 1991 , with the approval 
business Manager. Tl^ Food 
Comm ittee meets every two to 
three weeks to air suggestions. 
Their goals are to enhance the 
types of food, have more meal 
plan flexibility, and to make 
better use of the Pub facilities. 

A request for proposal (RFP) 
was released by the Food Com- 
mittee in April of 1992. Vari- 
ous food services submitted 
proposals in an effoit to win 
DVC's food service contract, 
which also included plans for a 
renovationtothesnadcbar. The 
proposal had to consider food 
standards, services, a design 
for the Pub, and the flnancial 
investment involved. 

After many meetings with 
prospective contractors, the 
Wood Company, who has beoi 
working with DVC for over 
thirty years, beat out Marriott 
and ARAby representing DVC 
withthe best financial proposal. 

Hospitality Services Inc. pre- 
pared the food services designs 
for the Wood Company. The 
designs were modified how- 
ever, through student and fac- 
ulty input. 

Ron Wood, head of the din- 
ing service commented, "I ttiink 
most of the change has been 
through student input." He 
also added that he is willing to 
listen to any suggestions stu- 
(tents and faculty have to make. 

Ron Trombino, a Food Com- 
mittee member, further cor- 
roborated this when he said, 
"Ron Wood is receptive to the 
opinion of studoits, so that he 
can please everyone." 

Construction began on the 
new Pub December 17, 1992 
in Older to be completed by 
January 19, 1993. It took only 
twenty four days to complete 
the renovations, and open in 
time for the spring semester. 
The budget for this project was 
$500,000, and came directly 
from the Wood Company. In- 
cluded in the budget were two 
new computers, and software 
for the flex cards in excess of 
$50,000. New kitchen equip- 
ment arKl training were also 

Glitches still have to be 
ironed out. For instance, Ron 
Wood is in the process of or- 
dering trays for the Pub. This 
may take a while because the 
Pub does not have a special 
tray wash system like in the 
dining hall. "It's a sanitation 
issue," Wood said. Dispos-

able trays will be used tempo- 

Ron Trombino also stated 
that overall the system is, 
"working well, although some 
people have a tough time ad- 
justing to change." 

"This is a good change, not a 
bad change," he adds, as he 
asks people to have patience 
for things to work. 

The extended hours are draw- 
ing additional people to the 
Pub. Mr. Mullins, the coordi- 
nator of the student center, said 
that he actually sees more 
people eating breakfast in the 
Pub now. Ron Trombino noted 
that when, he went into the Pub 
one night at 9:00 pm, he saw a 
room full of students, which 
used to just be occupied by the 
chess club. 

Mike Ward said, "it feels 
quaint and relaxing, and the 
Pub itself has more life in it 
than it had before." He also 
mentioned that many people 

are h^^y with the rules in the 

Ray Delaney, Pete's Arena 
supervisor said, "The Pub is 
more efflcient and nicely deco- 
rated If the place a person is 
getting food looks good, that 
person might feel better about 
eating at that place." 
Paul Shulte, a student at DVC 
said, "Kudos to the decorator! 
1 think the color schemes [fiis- 
chia and aqua] are fabulous. 
Withthe additi(mofthe atrium, 
the Pub now posses all the 
qualities of a decent eating es-

about the Pub renovation were 
positive, some people did not

Is Del Val Diverse ? 


By Cindy Blackston 

Minority Coalition Ltadar, Prta. 

In order for us to make 
an assumption, we must first 
define diversity. Diversity is 
the a)ndition of being differ- 
ent, to balance and to increase 
the variety, according to 
Webster' s Ne w Collegiate Dic- 
tionary. As I reviewed this 
definition, 1 concluded we, as a 
college, are not diverse and far 
from it. To make this school 
diverse we must begin by hir- 
ing more minorities, not just 
blacks but Asians, Hispanics, 
the handicapped etc. The stu- 

dent body must be made aware 
of different cultures. Many 
students come frcHU areas where 
they may have never seen a 
minority, except on TV. 1 be- 
lieve it is the responsibility of 
the educational system to make 
students aware of the different 
cultures they will encounter at 
least once in tiieir lifetime. 

By tiie year 2000, ttiere 
wiU be 70% more minorities in 
tiie woric force. The sdiool 
must begin to prepare the stu- 
dents for this change. The 
educational system is respon- 
sible for preparing students to 
attain professional employ- 
ment. This educational prepa- 

ration should also include di- 
versity training to ensure that 
the students wiU survive within 
such a woik force. 

Therefore, diversity 
must flrst begin with educa- 
tion, including becoming more 
aware of the environment 
around you. Exploring diver- 
sity can only enhance a 
studem's education and social 
ejqierience at Delaware Valley 
College. Let us begin now 
with a diversity training pro- 
gram before we all miss tl^ 
ORXirtunity to make the differ- 
ence in ending cultural igno- 
rance and racism cm our cam- 
pus and in our world. 


ighlights of 1992-93 

Perdue pays DVC a visit 

By Caryn Derr-Daugheriy 

Staff Writer 

When Frank Peithie was in 
college, he. like most other 
college students,did not know 
exactly what he wanted to do. 
All he knew was that he "never 
wanted to be on that chicken 
farm my dad started in 1920." 
As time progressed, he 
woiked with his father's busi- 
ness and eventually decided 
"the egg business wasn't as 
bad as I thought.*' 

Now, 53 years later, the once 
small pie(X of land with one 
chicken coop and SO Leg^m 
chickens (which all together 
cost $S) has turned into over a 
one billion dollar empire with 
farms scattered ^ross a multi- 
tude of states. 

On Febraary 10, Perdue 
shared his road to success with 
DVC studoits in a 20 minute 
speech. He discussed his right 
dedsions, wrcHig decisions, and 
offered valuable advice to the 
students in attendance. 

"My life has been a wonder- 
ful experience-lots of mis- 
takes; but more things right 
than wrong," said Mr. Perdue. 
Peodue talked about his in- 
gredients for growth, whidi 
included "fantastic. God-fear- 
ing parents and a very bright 
father who taught me daily 
without knowing that he was 
teaching and I was learning 
witlK)ut realizing it"

one of the South Carolina

brought Statistical Process

Other DVC grads employed 
by Perdue include Craig Dob-

mer interns every year "so we 
can have a chance to observe 
each other and become better 
acquainted." Interns include 
so[^omores, juniors andmany 
iMw graduates. Interns cover 
fields sudi as broilers, breeder 
and turkey production, engi- 
neering, accounting, general 
agriculture, and food process- 
Mr. Perdue offers these words 

great deal. He spoke at a din- 
ner for the Academy of distin- 
guished Professionals, had 
breakfast with the staff, visited 
DVC farms, and then spoke to 

Tte puipose of Perdue 's visit 
was to familiarize him with 
DVC. "Since Perdue Fanns 
Inc. embodies everything that 
DVC represents, we asked him 
to visit DVC," says Henry 
Sumner, Director of Develop- 
ment. He also stated that DVC 
Mr. Perdue himself. Origi- 
nally, his son, Mr. James Per-

DVC, but due to unfortunate 
circumstances he was not able

of advice to students who are 
seeking employment: "Look 
at the salary almost last Your 
latitude in earnings from dif- 
ferent (X)mpanies is less at ttiis 
time in your life than it will 
ever be. Select a not-too-lai^e 
company which is growing at a 

n above-average pace, and more 
than likely, you'll be recog- 
nized for outstanding dedicated 
performance . Also , once there, 
try to attach yourself to a "com- 
ing leader" who can help in 
your progress to the top." 
While Perdue's visit to DVC 
was short, he zuxomplished a 

to attend. 

Many students as well as fac- 
ulty aiKl staff were very glad to 
meet 'The Chicken Man". An 
interesting coment made my

would be shorter. That's how 

he looks in the commercials," 
(Mr. Perdue stands 6'1" tall). 
*- An interesting note: At the 
end of his speech, Mr. Perdue 
answered the question, "which 
came first, the diicken or the

DVC : Not just 
for students 


>-feA ^ 


By Caryn Derr-Daugherty 


A two hundred pound bear 
found its way onto the DVC 
campus and into the hearts of 
the students. According to Se- 
curity, the blade bear arrived 
on campus between 6:30 and 
7:00p.m. on Ttiesday night 
way betweoi the Student Col- 
ter and the Gym and then be- 
tween Goldman and Samuel 
dorms. Tliere she hid under 
wme trees to rest for a while, 
but was disturbed. She imme- 
diately dashed behind Beikow- 
itz and over tl^ railroad tracks. 
The following day Fire Mar- 
shall Lies and DVC Security 

Officer Marable walked behind 
Berkowitz to see if they could 
find any evidmce to support 
thebearsig^iting. Sureenough, 
imprinted in the soft mud were 
bear tracks. "She appeared to 
be frightened," said Officer 

On Thursday, November 
12th, the bear was sighted in 
Ambler, about 10 to 12 miles 
away from DVC The bear 
was chased up into a tree v^re 
she was later truiquilized She 
was then transported to Wy- 
coming Cbunty in WestemPA. 
The cub was believed to have 
wandered there fincHn the Blue 

Ridge Mountains which are 
located north of Berks and 
Schuykill counties. Ms. Bear 
had previously been ci^Jtured 
in civilian territory. A tag on 
the bear's ear was discovered 
when game wardens removed 
her from the tree. 

On a sadder note, the cub 
later had to be put to sleep 
because the Game Commis- 
sion feared the bear may be 
shot during hunting season; if 
someone were to shoot the bear 
and eat its meat, they could 
become ill or evm die as a 
result of the effect of the tran- 
quilizer used to sedate the bear.

The future of Ram Pages is extinction! 

By Paul Schneider '93 

Former Editor-in-Chief 

The Classes of 1994. '95, '96 
and '97 may not have a news- 
paper beyond this issue. It will 
be the decision of the indi- 
viduals of these classes whether 
or not they have a paper to 
voice their opinions and con- 

DVC did not have much of a 
student newspaper before the 
spring of 1992. Since then, 
there has been great effort and 
progress made by the Ram 
Pages staff to provide a re- 
spectable newspi^Kr for the 
student body. Due to these 
efforts the students have the 
best paper DVC has ever put 
forth in its history. Now. the 
editorial staff fears this is ex- 
actly what Ram Pages will be- 
come, "history". 

The efforts of the Ram Pages 
staff has made it one of the 
most active and influential or- 
ganizations on the DVC cam- 
pus. Through these efforts the 
staff is now working with the 
most up-to-date computer and 
photog raphy equipment. It is 
also the only student operated 
business on campus. How- 
ever, this equipment is not able 
to operate itself. 

It takes team work and coop- 
eration from the entire student 

body to operate the school pa- 
per. This is the students' voice, 
the voice of more than 1400 
people, and if utilized effec- 
tively it can be the most power- 
ful instrument on the campus. 
It is up to the students if they 
wish to relinquish this oj^ur- 

Operating a paper can be a 
rigorous and ftustrating expe- 
rieiK* or. as the current staff 
has chosen, it can be an invalu- 
able tool used to influence what 

happens in the environment in 
which they live. A lack of 
interest will be devastating to 
the stuctents of the upcoming 
classes. To forfeit this control 
would lead to an apathetic en- 

There are students who have 
previous experience working 
with high school papers and 
yearbooks who would be in- 
credible assets to the opera- 
tions of Ram Pages and their 

join the team. Those students 
with no experience can become 
invaluable to their school pa- 
per and it's future here, with 
little effort. 

In order for a newspaper to 
be effective it needs a number 
of people who are dedicated 
and possess the necessary am- 
bition to succeed. Addition- 
ally, it needs those wIk) are not 
afraid to look into "things". 
They must ask the rwcessary 

happening and wIk) is making 
the decisions that affect the 
lives of all students. 

It will be the students of the 
future classes who will suffer 
without a student newspaper. 
Only YOU , the members of 
these classes, have the ability 
to maintain control of your 
lives. To become part of tlw

Roth farm becomes a living part of DVC 

By Caryn Derr-Daugherty 

Staff Writer 

The Beginning 

In January of 1992, Mrs. 
Edythe Roth presented Dela- 
ware Valley College (DVC) 
with a historical piece of prop- 
erty. The 174 acre farm, do- 
nated by Roth, is being used 
for the purpose of agricultural 
education and research. 
The Workers 

Dr. John Avery, Chairper- 
son of Agribusiness at DVC 
and his wife are heading this 
incredible restoration process. 
Work began in Mid-July of 
tnis year, ihree students and 
two inmates from a local insti- 
tute, began cleaning the house 
and bam, preparing it for resto- 

ratioa Currently there are 6-7 
students from DVC working 
on the farm. 
The House 

The house, located on the 
acreage, is believed to have 
been built between the years of 
1790-1830. The Kulp Home- 
stead is a 1 2 room stucco over 
stone structure. TTie inside 
floor, ceiling beams and the 
home's six fireplaces are all 

As restoration on the house 
begins, students and volunteers 
will try to retain all of the items 
in the tome. Only when cer- 
tain codes and safety measures 
are required, will modem fix- 
tures be used. 
The Barn 

The stone bam is estimated 

to have been built between 
1840-1890. The construction 
of the bam matches that done 
by the Gennan stone masons 
who worked in this area during 
that period. 

The ground floor level has 
been restored to its original 
layout. It includes stalls to 
house 12 head of cattle, fwr
