A-Day is that nfiagical event that carries the power to 
motivate students to their full creative capability, raise col- 
lege patriotism, and even cancel classes on the preceding 
Friday. A-Day is as much a part of DVC as the Alltnan Build- 
ing or Lake Archer. It is such an establishment at our school 
that it can easily be taken for granted. The many hours of 
of work behind each project and exhibit are not always 
visible to the visitors on that single weekend. Also not 
visible is the history and development of this unique event, 
which began 33 years ago. 

It was in 1949 that the idea of A-Day was conceived. 
There were only 246 men enrolled at the school, which was 
still known as the National Agricultural College. A-Day was 
sponsored by the Dairy Society and most activities were 
centered around the agricultural clubs. This first A-Day was 
dedicated to Dr. Work, who had been the college President 
since 1946. Mr. Larason, our Registrar, was a student at that 
time. He remembers that. The Poultry Club and the Kennel 
Club were very active in the organization of the early A-Days. 
Livestock was shown inside the Allman Building, which nOw 
serves as a post office and lecture hall. The college was 
particularly proud of its dairy herd and Black Percheron draft 
horses. A greased pig contest and log sawing contest were 
both popular. The exhibits were designed to attract farmers, 
much like the Pennsylvania Farm Show. Local farm busi- 
nesses accepted the opportunity to display their products. 
The farm machinery exhibit was a big part of early A-Days. 

This was a transitional period for the school, rebounding 
from the depressed operation during WWII, which almost 
forced its closing. The school was growing and changing 
rapidly, and the students felt they needed to bring fhis new 
image to the public. Dr. Feldstein recalls that The idea was 
entirely developed by the students, with the full support of 
the faculty and administration. This important aspect of 
A-Day has remained, as A-Day is still a student-sponsored 

Many other precedents were set at that first A-Day. Dr. 
Cragle, now Director of the Agricultural Experimental Sta- 
tion of the University of Illinois, was the student chairman 
of the first A-Day committee. His committee decided to 
operate the event under a unified budget, which has proved 
to be most successful. Dr. Cragle said that one of his most 
difficult tasks was choosing a name for the festivity. Nomina- 

tions were accepted, and A-Day (standing for Agricultural 
Day) was chosen. 

Over the years, A-Day has changed to reflect the develop- 
ment of the college. The attendees changed from area farmers 
to an urban family-oriented group, mostly friends and 
relatives of the students. Consequently, farmer-oriented 
exhibits were de-emphasi^ed, while activities such as hay 
rides and children's exhibits became more popular. A-Day 
may be the college's best method of recruiting students 
for the future. 

Attendance has been increasing steadily since the 1949 
A-Day. This 33rd annual festivity should attract between 
30,000 and 50,000 people, depending mostly on the weather. 

The biggest problem in recent years has been providing 
parking space to accommodate the large crowds. This has 
been partially alleviated by an arrangenvent with Central 
Bucks High School to use their parking lot. The college pro- 
vides visitors with a shuttle bus to and from this parking area. 

One final comment expressed by all those questioned 
who had witnessed the early A-Days referred to the increasing 
commercialiitation of the event. Tlw ea-lv A-Days were not 
run as fund-raisers. The money taken in was used only to 
offset the cost of the exhibit. But the college has changed 
very much in the past 33 years. ^-Day is now the main 
source of funds for the many clubs who contribute to its 
operation. A-Day has become a mini-fair, complete with 
cotton candy, pony rides and a big-top tent. I neither con- 
done nor condemn this trend, but feel that it is an aspect 
that should be considered by future A-Day committees. 

Meanwhile, let's all enjoy this 1981 A-Day weekend. The 
outstanding efforts of this year's students should jw atie this 
A-Day the best ever! 


The annual A-Day weekend at Delaware Valley College 
finds many family members and friends converging on our 
fair campus. There will be plenty to do throughout the two 
day event with demonstrations, displays, lectures and the like. 
If you find yourself running short on things to do during the 
festivities, you are encouraged to venture out into Bucks 

The Bucks County region is one of the most historic re- 
gions in the Philadelphia area. Such places as the Mercer Mu- 
seum, Fonthill and the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works are 
all located in Doylestown. Labeled as "a testament to our 
pioneer past and the artistry, ingenuity and accomplishment 
of America's people," they are truly worth visiting. Also in 
the Doylestown area is the Rodman House, owned and oper- 
ated by the Bucks County Council of the Arts. They feature 
exhibits and art work of area artists. 

Traveling north on Rt. 202 you will encounter the village 
of Lahaska, jammed with antique shops and also the mother 
town to Peddler's Village, nestled on a hillside to the left of 
Rt. 202. In Peddler's Village shop after shop is filled with fas- 
cinating merchandise. If you are not one for shopping, the 
gardens of Peddler's Village are well worth the trip. 

Farther up Rt. 202 the Bucks Country Vineyards and 
Winery arc located. Here tours are given through the winery 
as the history of wine making Is explained. Hopping back in 
the car your next stop will be New Hope. 

New Hope is quite a unique town, situated on the Dela- 
ware River. The streets are lined with interesting, one-of-a- 
kind shops. Many local artists display their work throughout 
the shops, much of which can be purchased and cherished as 
your own piece ot Bucks County. 

Located down the Delaware River from New Hope is 
the Washington Crossing Historic Park, site of that unforget- 
ablc crossing of the icy waters that changed history. The park 
offers McConkey ferry Inn, Grist Mill, Wildflower Preserve, 
Durham Boats, and the Bedlord Monument. This stop on 
your tour is a definite must! 

Other points of interest in the area arc Green Hills Farm, 
home ol lamed author and humanitarian Pearl S. Buck. The 
National Shrine ot Our Lady ol C/estochowa, located in the 
outlying hills ol Doylestown, stands as a monument to the 
Catholic thurth and was a laVorilc ol Pope )ohn Paul's dur- 
ing his visits to this country as cardinal. 

01 course we hope that you will spend most of your time 
right here on campus. But il you are pressed for time, you are 
invited back to Bucks County to share in history and culture.

The editors of the "Gleaner" are overjoyed to announce 
the successful printing ol a 1981 issue once believed 
doomed to be unpublished. Our lears lor its sutvival devel- 
oped after a devastating lire which occurred in the offices ol 
the Neibauer Press, located m I vyiand. Contributions ot prose, 
drawings, and photographs were entrusted to us, and we m 
turn felt embarrassed and crushed when news ol the pencil al- 
ing bla/e reached us. I uckily, most ol the lileratuie had been 
previously stored on computer disks, avoiding damage to Ihc 
body of our issue. However, we considered cancelling the en- 
tire project when a press representative warned us to expect 
fire destruction ol all the artwork intended lor publication. 

As the employees sifted through the office skeleton, our 
hopes helped quench any smoldering pessimism about pub- 
lishing the "Gleaner." Eventually, all bul one photograph was 
recovered, allowing us to meet our A-Day deadline. 

Copies of the "Gleaner" are tree and can be lound in 
Lasker Hall, Almann Building, the library and the information 
booth on A-Day weekend. You arc entitled to a copy each 
year through a student activity fee, so pick up your copy

Ram Pages "Letters 
to the Editors" col- 
umn Is open to the 
entire DVC commu- 
nity, faculty, admin- 
istration and is de- 
signed primarily to 
offer an opportunity 
for anyone to voice 
his/her opinion. 

To be considered for publication, letters must be sub- 
mitted by Monday of each week, typed or printed form, and

are necessary In case of libel suits. 


It is apparent to all DVC students that the college is very 
money conscious. Requests for the spraying of odorous 
gingko trees and the construction of outdoor basketball 
courts, among other things, will most likely be turned down 
because of cost. Why then, does student government spend 
$151 on tee-shirts for those persons helping to prepare for 
the Hall and Oats concert? These people will also be rewarded 
after the concert by going out to breakfast, courtesy of stu- 
dent government. It disturbs me to think that my student 
government fee is being used towards the purchase of these 
tee-shirts. Money spent towards an activity should benefit all 
students. I feel that it is important for all DVC students to 
know where their money is going, and if what they see is un- 
satisfactory, they should speak out. Wasteful spending must 
be stopped. 


Stephen Cook 

Dear Steve Cook, 

This is in response to a very good point that you have 
brought up about government spending. All the facts you 
have stated are true and here is the reason for our spending. 
The most basic and important reason for the tee-shirts at the 
concert is for quick and easy identification of a Concert 
Committee member, for whatever reason. There is no deny- 
ing that government members do look forward to having the 
shirts as mementoes of the long hard hours beyond the call of 
duty required to put a concert together. 

The breakfast afterwards is used as an incentive for helpers 
at the end and incentive to clean up to the finish. Decisions 
as to whether this is appropriate are made by elected govern- 
ment members. Your concern is certainly worthy of consid- 
eration and you are invited to get involved in Student Gov- 
ernment and help in making concerts happen, deciding on 
moneys spent and many other decisions.

The Final Farewell: A closing letter 


The Intramural Softball season has been under way for a 
couple of weeks now but the old rain factor has limited the 
number of games completed. In the women's division, U.S. is 
leading the way at 2-0; the Rainbow Catchers and Fillies are 
one game behind at 1-0. In the men's Gold Division, Fat 
Helens and EMO I are undefeated at 3-0, 2-0 respectively. Is 
EMO on the way to yet another championship? In the Green 
Division, the Squealers are 2-0 a^H V-Slammers are 1-0. The 
Blue Division is the same with Rues at 2-0 and I.A.B.O.R. at 

If you need to relax before finals begin, why not catch 
some of your friends in a game? From here on out the 
schedule will consist of doubleheaders. That's right -you can 
O.D. on Softball at 4:20 and 5:30 Monday through Thursday. 
Six men's games and two women's games will be played each 
day. Have we got softball, or have we gotsoftball!! 

For field assignments and team schedules, stop by Mr. 
Wolfgang's office in the Rudley Neumann Gym adjacent to 
the universal weight unit!

No matter how it is phrased it tan be transUlcd as the end 
of another chapter in our lives. As a member ol the Class ol 
'81, my student life at Del Vdl is drawing to a close. Since I 
arrived here in January of 1978 much has happened. 

I have learned much about life here, in and out ol the 
classroom. Out of the classroom I have had the opportunity 
and privilege of serving in the House of Conduct and Polity, 
in Social House and as an editor of this newspaper. Through 
these various channels I have become familiar with many as- 
pects of our various organizations. The most important of 
these is cooperation, the joint effort of parties for a specific 

In the past cooperation between various college organiza- 
tions and administration have been at times strained. I have 
seen this in many forms and in none was the product bene- 
ficial. Fortunately, cooperation is becoming a part of our 
normal routine. Since I have been here at DVC (3/j years), 
the administration, faculty and student organizations 
have never worked so closely together as they do today. The 
fruits of this cooperation are beginning to become physically 
evident. The new Student Center is becoming a reality. In a 
couple of months a traffic warning device will watch over the 
south entrance. A new nursery for the Ornamental Horti- 
culture Department has been approved. These are only a few 

ol the attomplishmcnis Ihdt have been mjde this year alone! 

Life at Del Val tan be improved only ii people are willing 
to try. At limes this means that there must be a lew head- 
strong, rabble rousing individuals who will nut give up on <in 
idea. The ability to negotiate and tompromisc is a key Idclor 
in bringing about change. It is easy lor An individual or group 
to attempt to take a foot when an inth is olfered. More im- 
portantly, they must be able to attcpt the latls and only 
take an inch, at times. It may sound a little corny but inth by 
inch, anything is a cinch! 

Instead of sitting aroung moaning and groaning, take a 
stance. Stand up and question something i( you don't undei- 
stand or agree. There will be times when you arc wrong. It is 
then that you must be capable ot admitting you're wrong and 
sometimes even eat crow. Students must realize that taculty 
and administration are not fire breathing dragons or god-like, 
they are human. To those who have legitimate questions and 
disagreements they are more than willing to listen to you. 

A college education is not limited to the classroom alone. 
Experience with student organizations, faculty and adminis- 
tration are vital to a well-rounded education, but, haven't 
we heard that before?

Associate Editor 


The 1980-81 academic year is rapidly coming to an end. 

I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of you for 
your loyalty and dedication to the College which will soon 
become your alma mater. Many of you have represented the 
College admirably as members of various athletic, judging and 
equestrian teams. Others participated actively in the Student 
Government, Student Newspaper, Radio Station, as class 
officers, as resident assistants, in various clubs, organizations 
and societies, band, chorale, as cheerleaders, etc., and as 
active and loyal spectators. Above all, you were students at 
our College, growing and maturing intellectually, making 
friends, and acquiring a scientific and practical education 
which should help you in the future. 

I wish you the very best for the remainder of this 
semester and for years to come.

There is a thief among us, and they have brought great 
frustration and problems to the powers at DVC. The college 
flag was stolen from the Student Government room in Work 
Hall on April 9. Apparently access was gained to the room 
through a door or window that had been inadvertently leit 
open. This flag proudly waved the college colors and bore the 
college seal at graduations and other special occasions. It will 
also be costly to replace, if it is not found. 

The three letters DVC were also illegally taken around 
this date from the sign in front of the college, tveryonc is 
affected by these ignorant acts of theft and everyone's aid is 
requested in finding these items. The name of anyone supply- 
ing information will be held in confidence. 

P.S. Also stolen were the color televisions Irom both 
Samuel and Goldman Lounges. Cmc gang, let's grow up! 
Anyone with any information on the whereabouts ol any of 
these things should stop by and sec Dean Tasker. One way or 
another, we will have to pay for this vandalism.

E.S.A.D. defeated the HIGH JUMPERS to win the 
men's volleyball championship. The team was an almost all 
freshman squad. The SPIRITED SPIKERS defeated the I & I 
team for the co-ed championship. 

RAP I was the winner of the open league in men's basket- 
ball. EMO II defeated RAP II in the closed league. 

In hotkey, EMO detealcd VELS VANDALS with a late 
third period goal to win Ihc men's round. VELS VANDALS 
had been champions in previous years before their loss. 

Anthea Strang scored two goals for the winning GOAL 
GETTERS as Ihcy defeated MARGARITA'S BABES 4-3 lor 
the women's floor hockey championship. Last year Marge 
Gay's team had defeated the GOAL GETTERS, who were de- 
fending champions at that time. 

I just wanted to add that I was a relerec for most of the 
women's games, and played lor ANTARCTICA of the men's 
league. There are some women in the league that make some 
of the guys look awful because of their talents. Women's

15 Ways To Get out of the Dining Hall 

by Michael jaskolka 

This is a guide to some ot the best restaurants in town. 
Through the year my date and I have tried many different 
types of restaurants, from seafood parlors to some of the 
classiest places in the area. It's all up to your own tastes and 
your pocketbook which restaurant you pick. This guide is 
not an infallible gospel as to which restaurants are the best or 
least expensive. It only represents a year of testing a wide var- 
iety of places both in and out ot the area, and the best food 
on the menu on the nights the restaurant was tested. Bucks 
County has to be one of the best areas in the state for dining 
out, with many country inns, historic taverns, and new res- 
taurants. If you don't see your favorite one included in this 
issue don't fret, we'll be back next year lo offer you some 
more of the best dining out places in town. The restaurants 
below are set up from the most expensive to the least. Prices 
don't include drink and tip. 

EXPENSIVE ($25.00 to $40.00 for two) 

This had to be our favorite restaurant of the year. It of- 
fered a most lavish seafood buffet from caviar, oysters Rock- 
efeller, Alaskan king crab, and rich cheese cake. A main en- 
tree was also included; a whole Maine lobster or New York 
strip steak. Meals cost $18.95 per person. Reservations are 
required. Their hours for meals vary, so call prior to going. 
To get to Boston Sea Party take 202 north to 61 1 , go south 
for about 10 miles to Willow Grove, and it's located on the 


This restaurant, located on the shores of Lake Nocka- 
mixon, is a very co^y place for two to eat. The food is ex- 
pertly prepared; some of the dishes include roast duck, filet 
mignon, Lake House flounder, and broiled stuffed shrimp. 
Reservations are required and the cost of most entrees ranges 
from $10.95 to $15.95. They are open seven nights a week 
from 5:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. From DVC take 202 north to 
313; go north on 313 for about 10 miles; turn right on Three 
Mile Run Road, which will take you to the Lake House Inn. 


This is a nice place to go before you see a show at the 
Bucks County Playhouse. They offer a continental cuisine of 
Shrimp Scampi, Eggplant Parmigiana, and Chicken Tempura. 
Each dish must be purchased separately, so the price could 
reach $17.00 per meal, but it's well worth it. No reservations 
are required, and the menu changes nightly. The Havana has 
live entertainment on some nights. They make great Straw- 
berry Daiquiris. From the college take 202 north into New 
Hope, turn right on River Road for about '/a mile, and 
Havana's is on the right. 


If you'd like a change of pace, and like to see a good show, 
then this is the place. They have an all-you-can-eat buffet. 
Some of the choices of food are Chicken L'Orange, Seafood 
Newberg, Clam and Oyster Bar, and Roast Beef. There is an 
ample amount of food but only moderate in quality. The 
show was really good; "Kiss Me Kate'^ is playing there now. 
Reservations are required and the prices vary with each day; 
we went on Friday night, and it cost us $ 1 7.95. To get to the 
River Front Dinner Theater take 61 1 south to Vine Street in 
Philadelphia. Turn left on Vine and follow it to Delaware 

Avenue; follow Delaware Avenue to Poplar Street, and the 
restaurant is on the right. Make sure you get there a half hour 
early to get a good seat for the show and buffet. 


The Coach Inn is a unique dining experience, where two 
people can enjoy a meal in a private dining car, with treatment 
fitting a king and queen. They offer many specialties of the 
House, and also many popular meat and seafood dishes. 
Reservations arc requested, and the price for a dinner for two 
is about $30.00. Take 611 south to the Pa. Turnpike; take 
Fort Washington Exit 26, and it's located 2 blocks from the 
junction of Rt. 309 and Exit 26 on Commerce Drive, just 
look for 3 railroad dining cars together. 

MODERATE PRICES (from $10.00 to 
$25.00 for two) 


"One nibble and you're hooked," and we surely are hook- 
ed on this place. We go here often, because they do offer 
good seafood at reasonable prices. A few of the dishes in- 
clude Rhode Island Clam Bake, Fried Stuffed Shrimp, Lob- 
ster Tails, and much more. No reservations are required. They 
offer daily specials. The Seafood Shanty is located in the 
King's Shopping Plaza, on 611 south, about 8 miles from 
school on the left hand side of the road. Dinner is served un- 
til 10:00 p.m. on weeknights and Sunday, and until midnight 
on Friday and Saturday. 


This is dining in a colonial atmosphere with a good selec- 
tion of main entrees to choose from. A meal for two is about 
$20.00; some of the entrees include Virginia Baked Ham, 
Veal Cutlet Parmigiana, and Blue Fish. They offer a large se- 
lection of breads and a realty good salad bar. The Cock 'n 
Bull is open for lunch and dinner and reservations are advis- 
able. It is located in Peddler's Village, 10 miles north on 202 
in Lahaska, Pa. 


For seafood, Richard's is not too far from school, and has 
reasonable prices. A complete seafood menu offers entrees 
like jumbo shrimp, crab cakes, baked flounder, and a special 
is offered each day. Prices range from $5.00 to $7.00 for 
most dinners. You can bring your owh wine and spirits to en- 
joy with your meal. No reservations are required, and Rich- 
ard's is open from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. It is located on N. Main 
Street in Doylestown across from Cross Keys Hardware. 


If you're looking for a restaurant with a family atmos- 
phere, good food to match, at reasonable prices, then this is 
your kind of place. The food is good with plenty for all, a 
few of their specialties include whole boneless brook trout, 
roast turkey, veal Parmigiana, and New England fried clams. 
Reservations are advisable but not required. They also offer 
lunch. To get to Boswell's from school, follow 202 north for 
about 7 miles to 413; take 413 south for 1/8 mile, turn left 
on Rt. 263. Boswell's will be on your 'eft about 300 yards on 
Rt. 263. 


Follow the trail of the early stage coach riders, and stop 
and eat where they did. A very good meal is awaiting you 
here. There is a choice of Stuffed Breast of Chicken, Filet of 
Flounder, Sauteed Tenderloin Tips, and much more. No 
reservations are required. Some nights a variety of entertain- 
ment is offered. A Sunday Brunch is also served. Price for 
most meals ranges from $7.00 to $12.00 per meal. From the 
school take 202 north to Rt. 1 79 into New Hope. Cross the 
Delaware River bridge and about 1/8 mile on the left is the 
Lambertville House. 

LEAST EXPENSIVE (from $8.00 to $12.00 
for two) 


This is one of the most popular restaurants known to 
DVC students, lor making good pi//a and Italian food at^ 
really low prices, joe's offers many specials that attract many 
people, like 3 for 2 pi//a night on Monday and Tuesday. 
Other meals include lasagna, antipasto, one of the best veal 
Parmigiana with spaghetti in town, eggplant Parmigiana, and 
many more Italian delights, joe's is open 7 days a week till 
1 1 :00 p.m., Friday and Saturday till midnight. Joe's is lo- 
cated at 726 N. Easton Highway just past Dunkin' Doughnuts 
and Cross Keys Shopping Center. You should try it; you 
won't be disappointed. 


This is mostly a sandwich and beer restaurant. They are 
known for their Thursday Special (pizza and beer for $6.00). 
They also have honey dipped chicken, hot roast beef platters, 
and a large selection of sandwiches. Most meals range from 
$1.10 to $4.00. A good place to take a large group for a night 
out. The Skyline is located on South 202 about 6 miles from 
the school on the right hand side, in the Chalfont Shopping 


This place has nice atmosphere, reasonable prices, and the 
food is of average quality. The menu includes items such as 
stuffed flounder, fried chicken platter, roast beef dinner, and 
many more dinners. Prices range from $3.50 to $5.00 per 
meal. No reservations ar e required. Follow 202 south to 
County Line Rd; turn right on County Line Road to Rt. 309. 
Turn rt. on 309 and it's about 16 mile on the right. This was 
the restaurant we enjoyed the least of all. 



A host of breakfast and lunch entrees are available. This is 
a buffet style meal, and may I add it was very appetizing. A 
choice of hot entrees include: Eggs Benedict, Mushroom 
Quiche, Pancakes, or French Toast. Many breakfast favorites 
are available for your dining pleasure, such as bacon, sausage, 
home fries, creamed beef on toast, just to name a few. Roast 
beef, ham, chicken, and barbecued ribs are a few of your 
lunch specials. The entire buffet is $6.95, and well worth it. 
The service was noteworthy. Reservations are not required 
but advisable. Brunch is ser»^d 'rem 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 
p.m. on Sundays. The Doylestown Inn is located on West 
State Street, across from Kenncy's Book Store. 


The one meal that serves as two. The brunch is set up in a 
buffet style with all the food you can eat. The food is very 
tasty, and you will leave this place full and content. A few of 
the dishes include waffles, Swedish meatballs, creamed beef 
on toast, scrambled eggs, pancakes, and much more. The 
$4.75 per person incudes the all-you-can-eat buffet and your 
beverages. No reservations are required, but this place is pop- 
ular so get there early. Sunday brunch is served from 10:30 
a.m. to 2:00 p.m. From the school take 202 south for about 
13 miles; Alfalfa's is on the left. 

Most meals include rolls and butter, a salad, and a choice 
of vegetables. You have to pay for your beverages unless 
otherwise stated on the menu. Desserts are usually not in- 
cluded in the price of the meal, but they are a must in some 
restaurants. Add about $5.00 to $10.00 to each final bill for 
your extras. It is also proper to leave 1 5 to 20% of the bill for 
a tip. The waitress (or waiter) works hard for you, and does 
deserve some gratuity. I hope you enjoy eating in these 
restaurants as much as Gail and I did. You will come away 
with a lot of good times, so go enjoy, and "Bon Appetit." 

The Year in Review 


by Warren Lewis 

On November 7, 1980, the first International column was 
focused in on the "Hostage Crisis" in Iran. If you recall, the 
terms for the hostages' release were: 

1. Unfreeze Iranian assets in this country. 

2. Turn over the Shah's fortune. 

3. No retaliation be taken against Iran once the hostages are 

Meeting these conditions would mean: 

1. jimmy Carter would have gone back on his promise to 
make the exchange legally. 

2. That all of the companies holding suits against Iran would 
turn around and sue the U.S. for assets owed them. 
In the February 6th issue it was reported that the hos- 
tages were freed from Iran after 444 days. Questions of the 
U.S. fulfilling its commitment to Iran, the treatment of the 
hostages, and questions about retaliation towards Iran were 
discussed. Of the agreements made with Iran, their assets are 
being returned, and an agreement of no retaliation was kept 
by the U.S. The agreement meant jimmy Carter broke his 
promise. Out of the entire crisis the worst incident was 
losing eight U.S. servicemen in the ill-fated rescue attempt to 
get the hostages out of the country. 

Other issues discussed were Jamaica - on the Road to 
Recovery? Edward P.G. Scaga is trying to restabilize Ja- 
maica's economy after defeating Prime Minister Michael N. 
Manlcy. Scaga "s main goal is to get foreign investors, including 
the U.S., to look at Jamaica and reinstitute it for tourism 

and trade to help stimulate Jamaica's as well as any other 
country's economy. 

Is the U.S. Combat-Ready? 

This report looked at military accidents, aging weaponry, 
Russia and stockpiling, the manpower problem, and a lack of 
funds to rebuild and re-equip our U.S. military forces. 

The Big Shake-Up 

Naples, Italy, and surrounding villages were devastated by 
an earthquake that measured 6.8 on the Richter scale. Many 
countries sent in manpower and supplies to help with relief 
efforts of victims and their families. 

It Could Have Been You. 

This February issue compared students in Poland to free 
students everywhere and how lucky we are where we are. 

Economic Chaos Shakes Britain 

Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is dealing with one of 
the worst economic crises in Britain's history. She is being 
pressured by the leftists and from the rightwingers. 

A Pope Who Spreads Hope 

Pope John Paul II took a tour of the Philippines, Pakistan, 
and japan. His motorcade was mobbed by thousands who 
came to sec him and join him in his hopes and prayers. It was 
an experience none of the people who saw him will forget. 

"And that's the way it was. " - Walter Cronkite 

Next year I intend to have a weekly column on Dorm 
Life and would like to hear from you when something is 
going on in your dorm. 

The Tropical Fish Club, located in the Lasker basement, 
fell apart a few years ago. Most members graduated and the 
tanks were left empty. The walls were peeling and the room 
was a mess. This year, with only 4 members: Dom Centonze, 
Paul Linkmeyer, Jim Layton and Bill Lezzer, the Club has 
come back to life. The walls and floor were painted and most 
tanks contain fish. We would appreciate it if members of 
Delaware Valley College, staff, students, their friends and 
parents would stop down on A-Day. The room will be open 
both Saturday and Sunday for y n'- pleasure. See you there 
this weekend!

The Horticulture students (Class of '81) have purchased 
and will be planting and presenting to the school a nut tree 
grove. The grove will be located to the west of the Ag 
Machinery Building. 

A memorial plaque is to be presented to Dr. Feldstein 
and will hang in the trophy case in the lobby of the Agricul- 
tural Building. 



The Aggies have an 8-S-l record. They are playing a good 
ball game, and Coach Wolfgang stated that the whole team is 
hitting well. 

On April 7 the Aggies traveled to Ursinus, to take on the 
team who was the pre-season pick to win the MAC, and des- 
pite their good play lost 8-6. The Aggies then dropped a 
double header against Upsala (7-1, 11-3) on April IS. On 
April 18 the battery boys got a win as they split a double 
header with Wilkes, winning the first game 19-8 but losing 
the second 8-7. Once again on April 21 the Aggies split a twin 
bill, this time with Kings, but this time losing 10-4 in the 
opener and gaining a 10-6 victory in the second. The next 
day the Aggies once again pushed their record above five 
hundred with an 11-7 victory over Muhlenberg. 

The Aggies will be in action on May 2 as they will travel 
to Moravian for a double header and will end the season on 
May 9 with a twin bill with Susquehanna at home. 

Raft racers, sack racers, and runners - take your mark, 
set, bang! On a frigid Saturday, some 30-odd teams competed 
with each other battling, and laughing through the coldest of 
times and warpied up to the heat of victory. Here is how the 
events stacked up that day. 

From a distance, looking at Lake Archer, one wondered 
when the ice would form on the Lake and the penguins start 
skiing. Once in the slimy water, the temperature wasn't all 
that bad. Racing was fast, furious, smelly and wA. The broad 
jump was fun, watching people fall any which way but back- 
wards. The Sack Race was the best event of this competitors' 
day. A victory lunch at the end made it all worthwhile. The 
mile-and-a-half relay was pure one-minute agony. At the end 
all contestants bundled up and scurried back to their dorms 
for a steaming hot shower. By the end of the first day, we 
knew who could paddle to save his life, who ran faster to get 
out of the cold, which broad could jump farther, and who 
was fastest in the sack. 

Day Two of competition was partly to mostly sunny and 
much warmer than Day One. Everyone was out for another 
day of fun and excitement! Sunday's events were the Dizzy 
Bat Race, Foul Shooting and the Obstacle Course. The Foul 
Shooting may have proved to be the nnost difficult event of 
the day due to the lack of cooperation between the hoop and 
basketball. The Obstacle Course is always a favorite in sport- 
ing events. A combination of speed-coordination-balance, and 
striding ability were all needed in order to do well in this 
event. The outstanding event of the day was the Dizzy Bat 
Race. In order to watch this event, laughing was mandatory. 
Running 30 yards and picking up the baseball bat was easy; 
running around the bat was easy for some; but running 30 
yards back to the starting line was pure hilarity to watch. 
Some stumbled, ran sideways, ran in circles, ran the wrong 
way, and some just keeled over on the return trip. 

At the end of the day, scores and times were tallied and 
the first three places announced. They were: First Place, 
Team 34; Second Place, Team 8; Third Place: Team 32. At 
the end of the games, everyone sat back and sighed that it 
was over. Some wished there were more events. In the end, 
everyone on every team was a winner in his own way. 


by Lorri Qerus 

As luck would have it, the weather was asain foul for the 
Lady Aggies softbal I home Rame; and the longer they played 
the colder and windier it got. 

The game began slowly as Moravian led off the first three 
innings with two runs. In the bottom of the third, the Aggies 
came alive, bringing in 3 RBI's, 2 by Chris Van Arsdalen and 
one by catcher Irene Costa. 

The fourth brought 5 more runs for Moravian with Del 
Val retaliating with 3 runs, the store 6-7. The fifth inning 
saw Moravian tie the store; but the Aggies sank their teeth 
into the game and pulled ahead 9-8. The sixth inning Del Val 
gulped as Moravian loaded the bases and tied the score 9-9. 
The battle went through the seventh and into the ninth 
before Moravian won 1 1 -9. 

Michelle Forry pitched an excellent game, and good hits 
were made by Bernie Romano, Deb Ashe, Donna Cassano, 
Chris Van Arsdalen and Irene Costa. 

Next year looks very promising for the diamondaires as 
they will be returning all letter winners with the exception of 
Captain Bernie Romano. There are three starting freshmen 
on this year's team - Chris Van Arsdalen, Michelle Forry, 
both pitchers, and centerfielder [anice McNeal. Freshman 
Sandy Yerkes is also improving and should be a factor next 

With some highly talented recruits, the women's Softball 
program should be rather dynamic in 1982. Next year the 
team will be in a new home, just below the Stadium. The 
new complex sports an all-non-turf infield, and we mean 
non-turf! On a windy day the dust factor could add an 
interesting dimension to the game!

When the weatherman predicts a sunny, warm weekend, 
and you decide to treat yourself to a study break, the logical 
question is: where to go? May I suggest: 

1. A walk through a 15,000 times-life-size heart; 

2. A tour of a 1 7th century castle; 

3. An expedition to see an outstanding collection of 
Egyptian mummies; 

4. A talk with an "I8th century farmer" about orchard 
planting techniques.

The enclosed room was brightly lit, the air was heavy with 
tense anticipation. Each candidate disclosed his reasons for 
candidacy. The votes were now being cast. It would soon be 
over - the stress removed from their pulsating hearts. Yet, 
through the minds of each candidate the primary thought, 
"Will I be one of the chosen? If so, do I really want this 

position?" r^T T TT> ■fk.jrxvrc

by Mrs. Navarre 

Ron McCarty, Chuck Alpuche and Don McCarthy were 
the first RAs of West Campus. It is also their first year as 
Resident Assistants. Ron lives in the Senior House (the small- 
er of the two); Don and Chuck live in the )unior House. 

Ron, Class of "83, is from Mcd- 
ford, N.|. Since attending DVC, Ron 
is an Animal Husbandry major. He 
transferred from Burlington County 
College where he was a Biology 
major. Ron's career interest is farrr 
managing and he hopes to be self- 
employed on a farm. 

Ron is president of the Block and 
Bridle Club. He is active in intramural 
football, Softball, basketball and 
soccer. He is an active motorcyclist 
and he also enjoys camping and backpacking. 

Ron is employed by the College at Farm #3 and the 
Dairy farm. He also works at Tex Peters' farm in the 
immediate area. 

Ron believes that as long as you work for your goals, it is 
possible to make yourself whatever you want. 

Chuck Alpuche, Class of '81, is a 
Business Administration major from 
lenkintown, Pa. Chuck's goal and 
ambition is to play pro football next 
year; the Oakland Raiders and the 
Philadelphia Eagles have shown an 
interest in him. 

He is employed for the College 
work study program and he works in 
the student store. He also works at 
Chuck Alpuche U.P.S. During the summer months 

Junior House he is a bartender at Stouffer's Res- 

taurant in lenkintown. 

Chuck is a member of the Business Club. He is also active 
in intramural basketball and softball. His four years of foot- 
ball were a dream-come-true. He told me that everyone has 
goals but they do not always come true. He was co-captain 
this year of the football team. He was awarded "Player of 
the Week" this year and last year; he plays defensive end. 
Other awards consist of the "Maxwell Club Award" which is 
awarded to the outstanding college player of the Philadelphia 
area; also, first team "All American" and first team "Ali East 
Coast Award". 

Chuck Alpuche is ready to move on but he wouldn't mind 
a re-run of his four years; college was a learning experience 
that is more than just memories; there are so many people 
from the surrounding area that it is possible to take people 
with you. 

Don McCarthy. Class of '81, is an 
Ornamental Horticulture major and 
upon graduation he will be working 
with his family business, Landscaping 
and Asphalt Co. in Pt. Pleasant, N.J. 
Don went to school in Sioux Falls, 
South Dakota, for one year where he 
majored in Physical Education. After 
working for two years at home, he 
attended Lebanon Valley College for 
a short time as a forestry major; we 
are getting closer to his final choice! 
The Dean of Students at Lebanon Valley referred Don to 
DVC for the O.H. program! 

Don played football his first year at DVC. He also 
participates in intramural football, basketball and softball. He 
is interested in a variety of sports as hobbies; canoeing, water 
and snow skiing, weightlifting. Some of Don's spare time is 
spent painting sketches. 

Don is presently employed by Landscaping and Asphalt 
Co. He also cuts firewood. 

What Don enjoys about DVC is the well-rounded experi- 
ence of the academic majors; he said you learn to appreciate 
more than just your own major area of study. Don enjoys the 
easy-going people around campus and the agricultural way of

course tor Sophomore Agronorny and Horticulture majors 
and it may also be taken at that time by other Plant Science 
majors who are out of sequence. 

Students are urged to work on their collections over the 
Summer months when adult insects are plentiful. To aid in 
this, directions for making an insect collection are available 
outside Dr. French's office, tirst floor, Mandell Hall, opposite 
Room 114. The special insect pins on which the collected 
specimens must be mounted are available in the Student

Becoming a reality 

by Jerry Robbins 

Although (he need tor a Student Center has been realized 
for quite some time, it was last year's Student Government 
that took (he action to finally initiate the project. With some 
pressure from the present Student Government, the project 
has come a long way. Committee meetings were held to de- 
termine the needs of the college. An architect was then con- 
sulted who constructed plans and gave an estimated cost per 

Now it must be decided exactly what facilities will be in- 
cluded in the Student Centei. These decisions must be ap- 
proved and the final plans will then be drawn. The school will, 
however, soon have a sketch of the center which must be 
passed by the Board. 

A location for the Student Center must also be decided. 
At the present lime, the area behind the gyms is being 

All this lakes time. A definite date lor the completion of 
the Center is difficult to stale. This year's Freshmen should 
have the benefit of the new center and, it everything pro- 
gresses well, the sophomores may also have the use of the 

Money is also a big factor. The Center will cost no less 
than three million dollars. A Phon-A-Thon was held last 
month in which the Alumni have pledged to donate more 
than $70,000 to the cause. There will be many lulure lund- 
raising projects and the Board will also take a big part in the 
effort to raise the money. 

The work at this point is slow but nearly a constant job 
for those involved. The major thing to remember is that pro- 
gress is being made and the Student Center is constantly be- 
coming closer to a reality.

gan to mount. This was it, this was the biggie they talked 
about lor so long this was Hall and Oates, live, in concert, 
at Delaware Valley College. 

Around 7 o'clock the James Work Gym began to fill to 
the max with anxious lans ready lor excitement. An hour 
later, excitement came all the way from Manhattan in the 
lorm ol a punky warm-up band called "Tom Dickey and the 
Desires." fhey wailed out such popular numbers as 'You 
I osl," "Compciilion" and "I'm Burning Up," and seemed 
.ilmosi as glad to leave the stage as the "not ready tor punk" 
crowd to sec them go. 

Altei a hall houi intermission cveiyone enlhusiaslically 
welcomed Daiyl Hall and John Oalcs on ihc stage. Since

was good to be back in Pa. 01 course, they said the same at 
B'oomsburg last week. Along with Hall and Oates the group 
also included John Siegler on bass, Jell Southworlh on lead. 
Chuck Burgi on drums and Charlie Dechant on saxophone. 

They perlormed a whole list of great hits starling with 
"How Does it Feel," then "Rich Gill," "She's Gone, " "Sarah 
Smile" and "Wait for Me" along with about nine others. Ol 
course they had to include their most recent hit trom their 
"Voices" album, "Kiss on My List." They ended with "You 
Lost ihal l.ovin' Feeling," but kept that rockin' leeling going 
with two encores, ending their hour and a halt show. 

For the most part it was a really good concert. The Stu- 
dent Government members kept everything running pretty 
smoothly with most problems going virtually unnoticed by 
the 1800+ spectators. We owe them, and all their helpeis, 
much thanks lor sponsoring such a successful comeii at out 
campus and we look torward to more ol ihc sanu- to come! 

Hall and Oalvs tonivri was u hnqh sua ess, iittroc tiiiit

Gcmmill Center Dedicated 

The Animal Husbandry Department was pleased to 
hold the dedication of its new facility. Board of 
Trustees President Larry Middleton credited the gener- 
osity of the Gcmmills and the determination of Dr. 
Pcllc for making the livestock building a reality. 
Homecoming Festivities 

The Homecoming Parade was decorated by some 
outstanding floats, including entrees from FFA (1980 
winner), Block and Bridle, Christian Fellowship (tied 
for 2nd) and Dairy Club. 

The Homecoming Queen crown went to our favor- 
ite |ude Carbrcy of the Agronomy Club. Talea Hek- 
man and Cathy Ellsworth were runners-up. 
Life After Dark 

Alter all students were resettled in their dorms, 
Warren Lewis took on the project of writing on the 
differences in dorm life throughout our campus. 


The male harriers finished the season with a 9-3-1 record, 
lead by junior Jim Parsons, Del Val's only representative in 
the Division III national meet. 

Parsons finished fifth while the team finished tenth on 
November 8th at the MAC meet. The next week the team fin- 
ished eleventh of 33 teams in the NCAA Regionals as they 
knocked off three teams. Parsons finished tenth, qualifying 
him for the national meet on November 22nd. 

The 8th Annual Division III Cross Country National 
Championships was hosted by Rochester University, giving 
Parsons a 43rd place in the nation (out of the field of 250) 
with a time of 26:17. 

The team will lose only Chip Cowher and will be striving 
for an MAC crown next season. 


The soccer team linished the season with a 21 1 record. 
Even with their unimpressive record, the team is looking for- 
ward to a bellcr season next fall. The Aggies will lose Dan 
Parsons and Bob Stillc bul will be returning a large and exper- 
ienced team. Good Luck Guys!

The ghouls and goblins could be heard from dorms 
around as Ulman 3rd hosted this year's Haunted Hall. 
Hallowe'en Dance — "Fantastic" 

The Hallowe'en Dance, like the Haunted Hall, was 
a big success. 

Livestock Judging Team Results 

The 1980 Livestock Judging Team participated in 
two shows - the Eastern National in Timonium, 
Maryland, and the Keystone International Collegiate 
Livestock Judging Contest in Harrisburg, Pa. Twelve 
teams participated in both contests. 

Brown Swiss Herd of DVC Receives Production Award 
On November 1 1 , 1980, at the annual meeting, the 
Pennsylvania Association awarded Delaware Valley 
College the outstanding Brown Swiss Herd plaque for 
its second place in the state in both milk and fat pro- 
duction with 11.5 cows, 15,087 lbs. milk and 614 lbs. 
butterfat for herds under 25 cows. 

Equestrian Team Results

test held in Madison, Wis. 

Variety Show: A Sensational Smash

success. Best act this year went to Ted Stainbrook's 
"Kermit the Frog" performance. 
The Bucks County Honey Show 

The Bucks County Honey Show was held on 
November 12, in the Mandell Building. 
New Lounge Furnishings 

Special attention has been paid to the lounges of 
Work, Samuel, Goldman and Cooke. These lounges 
over the past months have been refurbished with new 
furniture in order to meet the needs of the students. 


Last fall the women's volleyball team finished a lack- 
luster season in which they had a 1-9 record with no wins in 
the MAC. 

The Lady Aggies' only win came on October 20 when 
they defeated Northeastern Christian, but they deserve a lot 
of credit for their continual effort. 

The ladies will lose Holly Funk and Jan Nystrand but will 
return a large team and are hoping to improve on this 
season's record. 


What a season! I he AtiK't's openc-d lootball practice on 
August 17lh, but at that lime who would have thought they 
would win the MAC Northern Division Championship? 

In spite of two non-division losses to Washington & Lee 
and Widener, the Aggies bounced back to take a 30-8 victory 
over the Wilkes Colonels. Del Val then traveled to Moravian 
for a non-division game which they lost 1 3-0 before returning 
home to take a crushing 48-0 Parent's Day victory over 
F.D.U. Madison. 

The next game matched our Aggies against the then un- 
beaten Lycoming Warriors. The Aggies' 9-0 victory left them 
sitting alone atop the MAC Northern Division standings. 

The Aggies never lost this Number One standing as they 
continued their winning ways. With wins over Susquehanna 
(12-0), Juniata (17-3), and the big game over Albright (34-10) 
which gave them the outright MAC Northern Division Cham- 

All-American Chuck Alpuche and eleven other members 
of the 1980 championship team will be graduating. These 
eleven include Tom Kenny, Tom Houpt, Greg Salicondio, 
Gary Walters, |im Ya/ujian, Mike Bergamo, Les Davics, 
George Demctriades, Frank Vellucci, Warren Robertson, and 
Mark Dobies. 


The Aggie grapplers compiled a 1 4- 1 record and were 
ranked m ihc top ten nali'inally al the season's end. They 
were undefeated in the MAC's entering the MAC champion- 
ship meet. 

The Aggies had to settle for second as they lost to Lycom- 
ing, bul they did quality live men for nationals. These five 
were Tony Novak, Paul Pearson, Warren Robertson, Jeff Bar- 
tholomew, and Troy Marshall. Troy was unable to compete 
at the Nationals due to a shoulder injury which occurred at 
the MAC finals. 

The trip to nationals was a disappointing one as Jeff Bar- 
tholomew was sent home to Doylestown Hospital because of 
a contagious infection. Tony Novak lost in the preliminary 
round, Paul Pearson lost in the quarter finals, and Warren 
Robertson lost a tough semi-linal bout. Warren earned a sixth 
place, making him DVC's first two-time All-American. 

The team still managed lo be Ihc strongest ol the MAC 
teams at nationals as they linished 17th. The team will lose 
Paul Pearson, Wairon Robertson, and Jeff Bartholomew but 
still remain the strongest contender for Lycoming's MAC 


Highlights in September started off with the nam- 
ing ol the DVC newspaper. The Ram Pages name was 
the work ot Barbara Meyer Another new name on 
campus was that given to the Aaron Building. This 
building now holds a new classroom to accommodate 
the Ornamental Horticulture Techniques class. UVC 
also received new picnic tables outside Segal Hall, 
which have served their purpose well throughout the 
year. In September, we were visited by Mr. Shive- 
dick, along with an Alrican Royal Python, a Boa Con- 
strictor, a Gild Monster, and many other interesting 
reptiles. Wc also enioyed a visil by General William C. 
Wusimoruland, who spoke about the Vietnam War and 
the stale ol today's military alfairs. An outdoor con- 
cert was also given in September by the Todd Hoban 
Band; it proved to be nuite a success. 




Lake Archer 

The lake has many practical uses that the students 
are unaware of. Migratory waterfowl use Lake Archer 
on their journey along the east coast. Students can 
fish in the lake with a good degree of success. Micro- 
biology uses samples from the lake for studies of 
microscopic organisms. Limnology classes study the 
overall content of the water. Lake Archer is also a 
water reserve in case of fire. Ice skating in the winter 
and relaxing on the benches around the lake reflect 
two other uses. 
DVC Peanut Butter Shortage 

Final exams were not the only crisis that students 
faced in December. The "staple of life", peanut butter, 
was missing from the David Levin Dining Hall. Because 
of the national peanut butter shortage, the Dining Hall 
was sometimes without this staple for December and 
the entire second semester. 

December Bloodmobile 

The December Bloodmobile was a huge success. 
Two hundred sixty-one people registered to give the 
"gift of life". 
O.H. Department Featured Christmas Open House 

The Ornamental Horticulture Department spon- 
sored an open house on Saturday, December 13th in 
the Greenhouse complex. This program was coordin- 
ated by various student organizations within the O.H. 
Department, including the Floral Society, Ornamental 
Horticulture Society, Floral Design Group and stu- 
dents from O.H. Techniques. 


At season's end Muhlenberg, Moravian, and Del Val were 
tied for the MAC Northern Division Women's Field Hockey 
Championship, but when it was all over our Golden Bananas 
were the MAC Northeastern Division champs. 

Following Muhlenberg's victory over Moravian, DVC took 
the championship from Muhlenberg, 3-0. The Golden 
Bananas then took on Franklin & Marshall in the MAC 
championship semi-finals, but our Lady Aggies were denied a 
victory 3-1. 

The Aggies still finished with a fine 7-2 regular season 
record and for the first time ever were the MAC Northeast 
Division Champs. 

The ladies will be losing Liz Heintz, Mary Ann Horst, 
Sue Ann Leed, Bernie Romano, Annette White, and Brenda 
Wolf, but next season the team will be looking for the MAC

Women's basketball at DVC finished the season with a 
5-13 record but did have some bright spots and will be look- 
ing for a great season next year. 

Sophomore center Susan Hartung was named the team's 
MVP as Sue scored 143 points and led the Aggies in rebound- 
ing with 135. The leading scorer for the ladies this season 
was Marcia Werner who tallied 226 points. 

The Lady Aggies will lose Brend^ Wolfe, who this season

Throughout the month of March one of the main 
feature articles included "How About a Date". Dwight 
Bohm interviewed guys and girls on their views regard- 
ing dating. The article was based upon a previous 
article published in the Daily Intelligencer. Meanwhile, 
students and local public got a brief but intriguing 
glimpse of the incredible world of Jean-Michel 
Cousteau, the son of famed ocean explorer Jacques 
Yves Cousteau, as he presented an elaborate lecture 
slide presentation on Wednesday night, March 11th. 

What would you like to see in a new Student 
Center? The views or opinions of what the Student 
Center should include was put to a student poll. The 
answers were unique; they ranged from "a room with 
plastic sheets and Wesson oil" to "a cave with sulag- 
mites and stalactites". The size and furnishings, per- 
haps unfortunately, will be limited due to funding. 


In their first year of competition the lady harriers tied 
Juniata for the MAC crown. They had little previous experi- 
ence during the regular season. Leading the way for the lady 
harriers was Jeanne Cranney who finished the three mile 
course in a time of 19:51, a sixth place finish. Gail Keleher 
finished seventh in a time of 20:09. 

The Lady Aggies deserve credit for their outstanding ac- 
complishments. They brought DVC its first MAC crown ever 
in any sport. These ladies will be looking for a repeat per- 
formance next season as all team members will be returning. 


April, traditionally the bluest month on the DVC 
calendar, didn't disappoint us this year. 

In the first week bt April there was the Career 
Night where students from all majors were able to 
talk about what opportunities lie ahead in the "out- 
side world." There was also the blood mobile (Wed., 
April 1st) where our much needed blood was donated 
to the Red Cross to keep the people who need it alive. 
On Thursday night there was the Fishing Clinic spon- 
sored by the Fish Commission and the Intelligencer 
and on Friday, April 3rd there was the fantastic Soph- 
omore Dinner Dance.

lecturers. On Tuesday, April 7th, Dr. Berger visited the 
college diid gave us an interesting lecture on wolves.

"Although we finished 4-20, we were in all our games but 
made too many mistakes at crucial times," stated head coach 
Les Lombardi. The team this season had Lady Luck evade 
them, as they averaged just 9.1 points per game less than 
their opponents. 

Bill Walters led the Aggies in scoring (17.2), rebounding 
(10.3), and field goal percentage (57.8%). Walters finished 
the season second in both scoring and rebounding in the 
MAC Northern Division. Bill's 18.2 points per game average 
was second only to George Aldrich of Kings who averaged 
18.3. Bill also finished third in field goal percentage and was 
named the MVP. 

Tom Kehoe, who followed Walters in team scoring (16.4) 
and rebounding (8.0), maintained a 75% mark from the foul 
line as he shot 108 of 144. Tom's 108 free throws was more 
than anyone else in Division III has attempted. Kehoe 
finished fourth in the MAC Northern Division in scoring and 
free throw percentage. 

Keohe, Walters, and Lyn Matthews will be lost to gradua- 
tion, but with sizeable replacements the Aggies will be look- 
ing for a much better season next year.

Weidman, and Carl Pellington. 

If you think that you might be interested in run- 
ning cross country here at D.V.C. , you are urged to 
report to the lobby of the James Work Gymnasium 
between 4:00 and 4:15 P.M. Hoping to have you 
running with us. 


The Evening Session for the 1981-82 academic 
year promises to be bigger and better than ever. 
Classes will begin on Monday, September 7th. 
These classes normally run from 7:00 P.M. to 9:45 
P.M. and several courses will be offered on Satur- 
day mornings. There are over 400 students enroll- 
ed in the Evening Program which offers a Bachelor 
of Science degree in Business Administration. 

The Evening Session also offers a series of short 
courses lasting between 2-5 weeks. The short 
courses offered this fall include the following: 
Inventory Management, Material Requirements 
Planning, Yogurt Workshop, Small Engine Main- 
tenance, Introduction to Home Wine Making, Food 
Sanitation Certification, Basic Floral Design, Home 
Landscaping, and Ornamental Gardening. 


Last minute switches in dormitory use left Elson 
Hall to the freshman girls, and Miller Hall to the 
guys. Elson Hall has been given a complete face lift 
with fresh paint and repairs. The new image will 
come as a surprise to those upperclassmen used to 
the old Elson Hall. 

Meanwhile, Jim Trainer and crew will be moving 
into the only place on campus that wakes up to the 
aroma from the dining hall, for better or worse. 

Our regrets Ann. that you are losing the most 
popular entertainment spot on campus. But look at 
the bright side, no more squeaky steps. 


Enrollment at Delaware Valley College will reach 
1375 day students in September according to 
Oskar H. Larsson, Registrar, at the College. There 
will be 425 new students this fall including the 
Freshman class and transfer students. 

In response to growing enrollment, D.V.C. has 
added another men's dormitory to house 23 
transfer students. 

Tabor campus is located one mile from the 
main campus, and ajoins college property on New 
Britain Road. 

The building is owned by Bucks County, and is 
being rented by the college on a yearly basis. Tabor 
Hall had been previously used as a boy's home. 
The stone building was completely remodeled this 
summer to accommodate dorm life Pat Lake will 
be the resident assistant of Tabor, D.V.C. 




Happenings Around Town 
The Critic's Choice 

by Michael Jaskolka 

Welcome Back! 1 hope everyone had a spec- 
tacular summer and welcome aboard to all incom- 
ing freshmen. I hope to tantalize your taste buds 
and turn you on to some of the hottest shows in 
town. I will review some of the best night life and 
day life in the community. 

Many of my articles will be directed toward the 
local dining scene. I hope to point out the best 
places to eat, give you a sample of what's on the 
menu as well as the current prices. There are many 
good restaurants where you don't have to put out 
"Big Bucks" to take out a date. Of course from time 
to time I'll include a special place where you can 
dine out and treat that someone special to a meal fit 
for a king or queen. A few of the restaurants that I 
will include this year are: the Copper Door, Chez 
Odette (French cuisine), Soup Tureen, Joe's Pizza 
(a rerun, we love you Joe's), H.A. Winston & Co., 
and a new face in town — Missy's Inn. I've tried a 
couple of these places this summer, and let me tell 
ya, you're in for some good eating this year. 

Aside from the dining out articles 1 will include a 
review on plays that will be coming to the Bucks 
County Playhouse in New Hope, as well as the 
main theatres in Philadelphia, Look forward to 
reviews of Grease (a fantastic show and a must for 
everyone) , Fiddler or\ the Roof, Godspell, and The 
Pirates oj Per\zar\ce . 

And for those of you who get bored easily, I will 
let you in on some of the happenings that are going 
on around town. How about a mule barge ride 
down the Delaware canal? For those that like to 
shake your booty, there's The Yellow Brick Toad 
for you. Like Jazz? There's a place in town with the 
best jazz and an atmosphere to match. Want to be 
surprised? How about three female impressionists. 
There is so much more to come so stay tuned. 

I'll try to let you know a week in advance what I'll 
be doing the following week, so if you would like to 
join me, drop me a line. You will have to put your 
request in to Ram Pages box the following Monday 
after the paper comes out, don't forget to put your 
name and where I can get in touch with you.

Cheer the Aggies on to victory against Widener for their 1st away game on September 12th at 
1:30 P.M. 

Don't pick the fruit! Because of the spraying of 
pesticides in the orchards, no one is allowed in 
the orchard until mid-October unless accom- 
panied by a professor. 


Sixth year Head Coach Al Wikon welcomed 104 
prospective candidates last week as the Aggies 
prepare to defend their Middle Atlantic Conference 
Northern Division Title. Ten seniors, twenty 
juniors, twenty-eight sophomores, and forty-six 
untested freshman will try to give the Aggies their 
third consecutive winning season and second 
championship. Last year the Aggies posted a 7-0 
league record and 7-3 overall capturing the first 
Middle Atlantic Conference Championship in the 
school's history. The Aggies will be tested early in 
the season as they open with Southern Division 
champs Widener, on September 12, followed by 
always tough Albright and Lycoming. 

The most pressing problems facing Coach Wilson 
and his staff is replacing twelve seniors, many of 
whom started for three years and formed the nu- 
cleus of last year's offense and defense. Six offen- 
sive starters including quarterback Tom Kenny, 
lineman Gary Walters, and Greg Salicondro will 
have to be replaced. Six senior starters on defense 
will need to be replaced also; on the line All- 
American Chuck Alpuche along with Warren 
Robertson and Frank Vellucci, linebackers Les 
Davies and George Demetriades and defensive 
back Mark Dobies. 

Needless to say. Coach Wilson and his staff have 
their work cut out for them as they prepare to open 
Delaware Valley's eighty-third year of competitive 
collegiate football.

The 1981-1982 school year has started off with a bang with the announcement that Delaware Valley

On October 10, Steve Landesberg will bring his fantastic dry humor to the stage of James Work 
Gymnasium. The famous "Dietrich" of Barney Miller is sure to pack the house. Tickets are only $3.00 
for our students — a real steal for a major Las Vegas- Hollywood performer. Tickets are $5.00 for non- 
students and are also available at ticketron so students are urged to get tickets before a sell-out is a

We've Got Spirit! Sound familiar? Yes, it's 
the sound of the 1981, super enthusiastic, DVC 
Cheerleading Squad. They're ready for the new 
season along with their new uniforms, new shakers, 
and six new team members. Joining seniors Peggy 
Devine, Brenda Berry, Kathi Clute, Barb Margraff, 
and juniors Kim Nicol and Kathi Schretlan, will be 
sophomores Tillie Docalovich, Joanne Kostka, and 
freshmen Ann Drobner, Annette Zamboni, Arlene 
Stein, and Andrea Grindrod. These girls have been 
hard ^-.t work practicing over and over to achieve 
the perfection required to cheer the 1981 football 
team on. They're getting ready to help the football 
team to victory with new cheers, mounts, and gym- 
nastic stunts, along with the unending tasks of mak- 
ing signs and promoting spirit. This last job can be 
made easier with the support of DVC fans. 

In the past, cheerleaders seemed to be taken for 
granted, and the necessity of their leadership often 
went unnoticed. Let's let them know they're need- 
ed by showing our enthusiasm and support for this 
1981 season.

Have you ever walked in your favorite lounge 
and find the furniture missing? Have you ever had 
to pay for it even though nobody knows who took 

Furniture stealing and vandalism is back again folks, and the vandals deprive all of us of our furniture 
and our money (when we have to pay for the damage.) 

How would they like it if this happened to them? If they got ripped off they would probably be upset 
too! But vandals don't take that into account. They also don't take into account the fact that the lounges 
get locked up and nobody — not even the vandals — can get in to relax. 

Let's think a little more while the 1981-1982 year is still young. Don't steal anything or vandalize 
anything, you may wind up paying for it. 

Homecoming Weekend will be the highlight of 
the fall with the arrival of the most requested group 
even at Delaware Valley. Pure Prairie League is ex- 
pected to top the gigantic success last year of Hall & 
Oates. Tickets ($6.00 for students, $10.00 for non- 
students) are already selling at rapid rate and a sell- 
out is a sure bet. 

All tickets are available in Mr. Marron's office 
from 9a. m. to4p.m., Monday thru Friday.

So you're a freshman! (Nothing new, we all were 
once.) Still it is a very difficult time in your college 
career. You arrive at school, register, and then you 
are put in a freshman group. For the next four days 
you are shuffled around like first graders. It might 
all have seemed very stupid to you but, those days 
of orientation had a very specific goal in mind. 
They were to familiarize you with the college and 
the campus you will be living ne^r or on for the next 
four years. 

It is important that you know the college to 
enable you to use it to the best of your ability. This 
applies academically and socially, and should be 
taken seriously on both counts. Some of the people 
you meet here are going to become some of your 
closest friends. It is very important for you to have 
an open mind toward the people you meet. 

Get involved . There are intramurals in sports go- 
ing on year round. Clubs are always sponsoring 
some type of event. The College has its own sports 
teams that seem to be constantly improving. In 
general, there is much to do; be a participant; you 
might really have a good time at school.

The Aggies season opener was a well played 
game m the first annual Keystone Classic Hall of 
Fame game. Although we lost 21-6 at the hands of 
a Division III powerhouse, the game was closer 
than the score would indicate. Widener led 7-6 at 
halftime and it seemed as the Aggies were fired up 
and would carry their last minute offensive surge by 
running backs Cosmo Losco and Tom Kirk into the 
second half. Losco's five-yard plunge in the second 
quarter after a fifty-yard pass from Tom O'Neill to 
Mark Tankersley proved to be Del Val's only score. 

Ensuing the second half kickoff Widener had the 
ball at their own 29, quarterback Bob Cole handed 
off to Jerry Irving and managed to scamper 71 
yards to "pay dirt" on what looked to be a defensive 
error. On the next Aggie offensive series Widener 
intercepted but failed to gain. We then took over 
and were forced to punt. On the next possession 
the Aggies were again intercepted. 

After two successive first downs, Widener had a 
1st and goal at the 9 and just as it looked as the 


It has come to my attention that the reduced 
train schedule on the Lansdale-Doylestown line is 
causing problems for some commuting students 
and faculty. Because of financial strains, SEPTA 
has eliminated all service before 9:00 a.m. and 
after 7:00 p.m., making the train unavailable for 
first period classes or any evening activities. The 
daytime schedule has remained unchanged, with 
trains running almost every 45 minutes. 

Mrs. Shook, head librarian, has suggested two 
courses of action to help solve the problem: First, 
write to SEPTA's scheduling office. Tell them your 
needs as a potential customer, and suggest that 
they thin out the daytime schedule in trade for pro- 
viding morning and evening service. Public service 
officials are usually very sensitive to letters. 

The address is: 


Route Scheduling 

200 W.' Wyoming Ave. 

Philadelphia. PA 19141 

The second action taken has been to provide a 
Ride Board in Segal Hall. If you need a ride, on a 
regular or one-time basis, or can provide trans- 
portation, check out the board in Segal Hall. This 
section of the bulletin board should replace the scat- 
tered ride notes that turn up on the wall over cam- 
pus. I hope this can help solve some commuting 

Train schedules can be picked up at the library or 
from Mrs. Nelson in Lasker Hall.

To all students. 

Security officers are on duty 24 hours a day and 
can provide many services in addition to the 
prevention of fire, theft, and vandalism. 

Our staff of 20 can open your door if your room- 
mate locked you out, notify you if you left your car 
lights on, direct your visitors to your room, and 
assist you if you locked your keys in your car. 

Many tools and other items may be borrowed: 
from brooms to jumper cables to a hose to wash 
your car, and even an air tank for those slow leaks 
to get you to a service station. 

You can count on us to expedite repairs if the 
lights go out or the heat goes off. We can also pro- 
vide after-hours access to any area where a student 
may have left his books, glasses, or other personal 
belongings. See us also for vehicle registration. 

If we can be of any service to you, please stop in 
anytime. Call extension 315 or 345-9483.

The first day of college parents helped move their 
daughters into their new home: Elson Hall. As soon 
as they opened the door to their new rooms, some 
parents made some astute statements. 

1st Mother (opening room door) "I wasn't ex- 
pecting the best but this is pretty 
1st Father "This is a catastrophe!" 
1st Mother "This looks like a prison!" 
1st Mother (sits down on lower bunk bed, 
sees graffiti on board of upper 
bunk) "OH MY GOD!!! I'm bring- 
ing a paint roller next week!" 

2nd Mother (to daughter) "Now you'll ap- 
preciate home more!" 
2nd Father "Why did they stick you in the 
bath house?" 
Boyfriend "Can you tell me how to get to 
Elson Hall?" "Oh we thought that 
was the bathroom." 

In spite of parents' and students' first impres- 
sions, Elson Hall has been transformed from a 
man's dorm to a ladies d6rm. When asked what 
they liked about the dorm, all the occupants enjoy 
the fact that the dorm is centrally located near class 
buildings, the gym, college store, dining hall, and 
library; the low number of rooms means you can 
get to know your dorm mates more easily than in a 
larger dorm. The ladies also like the cleanliness of 
the dorm and appreciate the well done job of the 
cleaning person. 

Some problems exist within Elson Hall. Drabby 
colored rooms, small windows, not enough 
sockets, broken window screens, inadequate shelf 
and closet space, and no dressers, are a few of the 
grievances. A list of other problems regarding 
maintenance was turned over to Mr. Caceras, 
department chief. Since then, the showers have 
been repaired and some new screens were put on 
the windows. Previously some screens were 
destroyed by vandals. Other complaints of falling 
ceiling tiles, a banging shower door, and chipping, 
or peeling paint will be taken care of as soon as 
possible. A limited size maintenance staff means it 
will take longer for the work to be accomplished. A 
problem of major concern is the insects coming in 
through windows without screens and ants crawling 
up under the screens. 

Miscellaneous problems such as students leaving 
peanut butter with snake sandwiches on the fire 
box, talking walls, walls with ears, and desks that 
are too hard to get quarters to bounce off, are being 
worked out by the ladies. 


Dear Aggie, 

I'm a freshman and I'm interested in dating a 

junior. She doesn't seefn to notice that I'm around. 

I feel as though I'm being snubbed because of my 

freshman status. What can I do to get her attention? 

Interested in the Upper Class 

Dear Interested, 

Age seems to be a hangup for many people. See 
if you can find a common interest and build on that. 
If it's not meant to be, you must remember there 
are always other pebbles on the beach! 

Dear Aggie, 

I'm a freshman and I'm a little uneasy about living 
with my roommate. This is the first time I've been 
away from home, and she is also my first room- 
mate. We've been here for almost two weeks, and I 
really don't know how to go about breaking the ice. 
What suggestions do you have? 

Unsure roommate 

Dear Unsure, 

You're not the only one who has unsure feelings 
about being in a new situation. Why don't you try 
playing the game "50 questions." This way you can 
find out each others likes, dislikes, and special hob- 
bies. I'm sure you'll feel more at ease with a bit of 
info between one another.

Marty Stern, better known on campus as "Uncle 
Marty," has' officially joined the ranks of coaches 
at Del Val. Last year he served as the unofficial 
assistant coach of the track team and helped out 
during his free time on a volunteer basis. This past

The number of credit hours required for gradua- 
tion for Juniors and Seniors (all students having 
passed 67 credits or more) remains the same as 
shown in the 1980-81 College Catalog. 

Juniors and Seniors wishing to take more than 
19 credit hours of course work in any semester 
must have at least a 2.0 cumulative average and 
the written permission of the Dean and Department 
Chairmen. Those taking over 19 credits will be 
required to pay additional tuition. 

The number of credit hours required for gradua- 
tion has been reduced for Freshmen to 128 hours 
for all majors except Business AJminlsiration which 
will have a requirement of 126 credit hours. There 
is an additional requirement of 4 credit hours in 

Sophomores (student with less that 67 credits) 
have also been granted the privilege of this reduced 
requirement in credit hours for graduation. 

Freshmen and Sophomores wishing to take over 
18 credit hours in any semester must have at least a 
2.5 cumulative average and have the written per- 
mission of their Department Chairman and the 
Dean. They will be required to pay extra tuition for 
taking over 18 credit hours during any semester. 

summer, however, the job of Head Track Coach 
became available and Stern agreed to fill the vacancy. 

Coaching on the collegiate level has always been 
one of "Uncle Marty's" goals, but prior to this he 
has never been given the opportunity. His past ex- 
perience in coaching has given him excellent quali- 
fications for the job. He started his track career at 
West Chester State College where he majored in 
physical education and received his teaching de- 
gree. While at college he ran under Coach Jack 
Cloaky whom he credits with helping him in a 
variety of ways. He has coached on the high school 
level for 18 years and at 4 different high schools. 
During this time he has compiled an impressive 
145-11 dual meet record. From high school coach- 
ing, he went to the Bermudas for a short-lived ex- 
perience of coaching their Olympic team. In 1976 
he left coaching to open his now famous business in 
Doylestown — Uncle Marty's Sneaker Barn. 

Coach Stern is very optimistic about the upcom- 
ing track season for DVC and plans to start practice 
in September on an informal basis. This will en- 
able him, in a more relaxed surrounding and nicer 
weather, to teach the fundamental skills and 
sharpen the existing talent of the students. Also 
on the agenda for training is a large winter track 
program which will include meets against larger 
schools such as Division 1. This will also give the 
competitors experience in meets without putting 
pressure on them to do well. 

This year he will be keying on larger meets and 
intends to use the dual meet situation largely as a 
learning and training area for the larger more im- 
portant meets. Coach Stern's overall goal is to 
develop a competitive track program. He plans to 
do this by being consistent and placing in the top 10 
nationally after winning the MAC division. Stern 
believes one of the reasons this is possible is the 
James Work Stadium, one of the finest in the area, 
and the depth of quality athletes already in the track 

For the upcoming track season there are many 
returnees from last years team and Stern is looking 
for contributions to the team from Mark Tankersley, 
Steve Trostle, Phil Luccarelli, and Jeff Robinson, 
all of whom are MAC titleholders. Anyone who is 
interested in running track is invited to come out 
and participate.

This year Russia will be falling far short of its projected grain harvests due to-drought, rainstorms, 
theft, and perennial mismanagement. When the farmers need rain, they get drought, when they need a 
dry period to harvest, It pours. Mismanagement such as "leaving gaping holes between rows of wheat 
and other crops and grain combines mowing while collection trucks follow much too far behind and 
grain is literally funneled back into the ground, missing the trucks completely." Waste may be as high as 
40% on some farms. 

The U.S. , however, has an abundance of grain since the partial embargo and the lift of the embargo. 
Russia, angry at the U.S. , is going elsewhere for most of her grains and meats also. Now Argentina and 
Canada will supply Russia to make up the deficit. With this loss the U.S. is now scrambling for a share of 
the Soviet Union's and other countries' grain business.

Grease back them D.A.'s, break out those leath' 
er jackets and poodle skirts, because Grease is 
back. This long playing muscial is a revival of 
1950's rock and roll, and the zany antics of a bunch 
of grease-ball high school kids in 1959. The en- 
thusiasm of the actors make it a very memorable 

I'm sure you remember your high school days, 
and some of the "normal" everyday fun you had. 
Grease is a musical of just that kind of fun; from 
teenage love affairs to hot cars and women. The 
story revolves around two teenage lovers, Danny 
and Sandy, and two groups of high school hot 
shots. "The Burger Palace Boys" and "The Pink 
Ladies." All aspects of teenage years are touched 
upon — prom night, high school sock hops, drive- 
in movies, and who would miss the mouseketeers 
after school. 

The lead male role of Danny Zuko is played by 
John E. Blair. His zealous attitude toward the part 
can make you see why he's the most popular guy at 
Rydell High. Danny must be a tough guy around 
the boys and innocent toward Sandy as well. He 
plays his part with style. 

Joan Rhoads has the lead female role of Sandy 
Dumbrowski. This shy and innocent girl is trans- 
formed through the course of the play into one hot 
little number; with the help of "The Pink Ladies." 
As Sandy, Joan brings out all the qualities that a 
unknowing and naive small town girl possesses and 
plays the part very well. 

The entire cast makes this show come alive, and 
they are having fun doing it. They make you 
believe in their parts, and play them with expertise. 
A feeling of getting up from your seat overcomes 
you throughout the performance. The music, sing- 
ing, and dancing make this a show that no one 
should miss. 

So go on down to the Bucks County Playhouse 
and get "mooned." This current running of Grease 
is the second time it's showed this season. It played 
to sell out crowds in the spring. Grease will be at the 
playhouse till September 20th and will return again 
November 5th to November 15th. Hey guys — if 
you need somplace to take your date this weekend, 
go see Grease, it was fantastic. 

Curtain times for the evening performances are 
Wednesday through Friday 8:30 p.m., Saturday 
5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., and Sunday 7:30 p.m. 
Price range from $8.00 to $10.00, depending on 
the time of the show. The Bucks County Playhouse 
is located on South Main Street in New Hope, Pa. 
To get there from the college follow 202 South 
to New Hope, and make a right on South Main 

The next show at the playhouse is Fiddler or\ the 
Roo/ playing from September 23 till October 11.

Mixing the Laughs with the Screams 

An Americar) Werewolf in Londor) 

by Tony Novak 

A rare find this year is a movie that conveys 
anything more than a TV level theme, without los- 
ing the audience in the intricacies of the story. 
Americari Werewolf is an exception. This movie 
nails down several themes. Most obvious is the 
American -British relationships, not unlike the in- 
herent comedy that inspires The Bennie Hill Show. 
This is, of course, a well used funny theme. 

Coming from the director of Animal House, this 
movie deals with the adventures of two ivy league 
kids who were surprisingly easy to identify with. 
The movie pokes fun at TV, the American home, 
and the English concept of sanity. For hard core 
punkers, the London trolley scene is a must. 

The special effects were fantastic. The complete 
conversion from man to wolf could have been a 
course in comparative anatomy. When nightmarish 
monsters storm the screen wearing Star Wars 
costumes, it took me a solid five seconds to recover 
from the shock of the scene before I was laughing 
with just as much intensity. 

My friends caught me clutching my throat during 
the attack scenes, and I still can't explain to anyone 
why the decaying "un-deads" were so hilarious. 

But most important, I'm happy to report that 
after seeing this flick at a late showing. I was not 
awakened that night by any of these monsters, real 
or imagined.

Everyone is aware of the many rows of fruit trees 
maintained by the horticulture department here at 
D.V.C.; they serve as a lab area for the techniques 
classes, and place to walk or think at night, and a 
source of crunchy munchies in the fall. What many 
people don't realize, though, is what becomes of 
the bulk of the fruit from those trees: the peaches 
that most Aggie eyes never see tor tastebuds never 
taste), and the multitudes of apples that hang 
heavily from the dense trees. 

Unknown to most, the college operated a road- 
side stand years ago. Now t'^e poultry diagnostic 
lab, the former stand handled the countless baskets 
of peaches, vegetables, and apples. However, 
because of complaints from other orchards, D.V.C. 
was forced to move its produce business to the hor- 
ticulture basement, from where it now markets 
everything from June raspberries to peaches and 
vegetables in July and August, until November, 
when the apple season ends. 

The market is now run by several students. Ap- 
ples, the main crop, are being handled now in large 
numbers. Pumpkins, winter squash, and pressed 
cider will soon be available. The market is open 
from 4-5 p.m., Monday-Thursday. In the event 
that one would want a basket or so of apples to take , 
home for a weekend, arrangements can be made 
ahead of time by calling in an order. 

Whether you are looking for a few apples to 
munch on during study breaks or a basket to keep 
Mom busy, the orchard sales room can no doubt fill 
your needs. Stop by, see what is in, and feel free to 
sample the fruit.

Last weekend 1 was visited by a friend, a 1981 
graduate, who had gone from D.V.C. to find a 
place for himself in the real world. He was a dairy 
major, with the single ambition of operating his own 
farm. Finishing classes last December, he was un- 
derstandably concerned about his future. It was 
obvious that he was far from realizing his only 

When he disappeared last winter the reality of 
existance after college really hit me. I was worried, 
more selfishly that for my friend. What does a 
young farmer do when realities conflict with his 

He told me that he made his way up to Penn 
State, enrolled in teaching courses for two 
trimesters, and landed an agricultural teaching job 
in Franklin County. He talked about developing his 
curriculum for eighth graders, lesson plans, 
discipline, and many other topics that I had long 
ago forgotten of the world of junior high school. As 
he talked, I noticed many other changes since I had 
seen him last. He was clean shaven, as I imagine all 
junior high teachers should be. The dairy boots 
were gone, and most notably, so was the dairy 

Was this a permanent change? Had he given up 
on his goal held through the college years? No, he 
reassured me, this was just a stepping stone until 
he could start' farming. He spoke more realistically 
about dairying than he had in past years, and I 
could tell that he really was one step closer to 
fulfilling his ambition. 

I was very much inspired by this meeting. I was 
proud of my friend not only because he was finally 
making it on his own. More importantly, he had 
adapted to the realities of getting started in farming, 
without getting discouraged or giving up on his 

He proved to me that adapting to realities is not 
necessarily the same as treason against my own 

SPORTS . . . 


The summer of 1981 brought many ups and 
downs to the sporting world. While, the baseball 
strike headed the list of disturbances in sports, there 
were many other problems the sports fan had to 

America's number one sport was interrupted on 
June 12 when baseball owners and players could 
riot come to an agreement on many issues, headed 
by free agent compensation. After 58 days the 
strike did come to an end with the rescheduling of 
the All-Star Game in Cleveland on August 9. 

The Racing World also had its share of problems 
this summer. Bobby Unser, after winning the Indy 
500, was stripped of the crown, giving Mario An- 
dretti the win. Although Unser appealed the deci- 
sion. itAwas to no avail as he clearly was guilty of an 
infraction while leaving the pit lane under a yellow 
flag. Then at the Pocono 500 CART (Champion- 
ship Auto Racing Team) officials gave their 
members a choice of cither not racing at Pocono or 
face a 60-day suspension, which would cut out 
most of the racing season. With most of the big 
namedrivers belonging to CART, the Pocono 500 
once again took a large loss. Racing officials have 
since filed a $9 million suit against CART in an at- 
tempt to make up their losses and finally lay the 
CART-USAC fued to rest. 

The NCAA signed a $263 million pack with ABC 
and CBS to cover college football for the next 4 
years but the 62 member CFA (College Football 
Association) has now reached a $180 million deal 
with NBC. The CFA members include all the major 
conferences and independents except the Big 10 
and Pac 10. This means if the CFA members 
decide to go with the NBC deal the NCAA could be 
nearly non-existent in college football. Some CFA 
members are not happy with the NCAA pack 
because they feel the TV schedule should be made 
up of large teams instead of all the teams. 

The Oakland Raiders made a loi of news this 
summer as AI Davis, managing general partner of 
the Super Bowl Champs, will have to return to the 
courtroom this week in an attempt to win his battle 
to move the Raiders to the Los Angeles Colisium. 
Davis' battle with the NFL is a battle against a rule 
which states that three quarters of the 28 NFL 
teams must agree to a move by an NFL franchise. 

These problems as well as others tested the 
sports fan this summer but in the end the fans have 
proven they are still willing to stand behind their 
favorite sport.

by Lorri Gerus 

After winning their first two scrimmages the 
volleyball team is ready to take on a tough season. 
Returning to the team are five starters, all var- 
sity letter winners. New to the team is sophomore 
Sandy Yerkes. Debbie Rizzo and Jean Stump will 
add strength as reserve players. 

Gail Garthwaite, co-captain, will be giving the 
team a strong backbone with her serves and game 
experience. Patti Rissinger, last year's MVP, returns 
as the other co-captain . 

Setter Wanda Perugini is promising a great 
season. Spiker Michele Forry is much improved 
after a week at volleyball camp. DVC's strongest 
spiker, Missy Young, shows she has gained control 
and power. 

Coach Kathy Kravitz is looking forward to a good 
season. She says the schcdulie looks tough but has 
confidence in her experienced team.

Football Preview 

by Art Barillo 

This is a year of optimism for the Aggie football 
team coming off its 1980 MAC Northern Division 
Championship. The team lost 8 starters to gradua- 
tion. The biggest loss was the defensive line of 
All-American end Chuck Alpuche, end Frank 
Vellucci, and tackle Wanren Robertson. All were 
All- Conference players. 

Coach Wilson has high hopes in their replace- 
ments, Al Applegate and Dave Eggleston, along 
with juniors J.D. Niehls, Ray Jenkins, and senior 
Kevin Hoke battling for the defensive end posi- 
tion. The linebacking corps is solid with returnees 
Ron Verra, Tim Boyes, Mark Bream, and George 
Wajda. The defensive backfield returns with ex- 
perience, led by senior captains Jim Duncan and 
Rod Bates along with juniors Rich Dougherty, John 
McFadden, and Pat Lake. 

If everything clicks, the offense has the poten- 
tial to be the MAC's finest. The offense is led by 
senior captain, running back and All-MAC center 
as a freshman, Jim Bertoula. Rounding out the of- 
fensive line are juniors Ernie Meilly, Brad Hall, 
and Bill Givas. The tight end spot is anchored by 
senior Mike Petty. At wide receiver will be All- 
American hurdler Mark Tankersley. Joining Kirk in 
the backfield is the school's first 1000 yard rusher, 
junior Eric Reynolds. At fullback getting the nod 
will either be junior Carl Nebhut or transfer Bill 
Black. The quarterbacking duties will be handled by 
sophomores Tom O'Neill and Dan Rupp. 

The new offensive and defensive lines will be 
tested early, and should be an indication of the 
team's real potential, as we look for another banner 

The Aggies look tough at every position and are 
looking for another championship.

The Harriers of Delaware Valley College traveled 
to the L.V.C. Invitational on Saturday, September 
12. The team, one of fifteen teams, finished in 6th 
place with 221 points, being the 3rd Middle Atlantic 
Conference team to finish. Millersville College 
finished 1st with 45 points. 

Jim Parsons led D.V.C. over the 8000 meter 
course. He placed 18th for D.V.C. and was the 
2nd Middle Atlantic Conference runner to cross the 
finish line, with a time of 26:27. D.V.C. 's Rich 
Weaver finished in 50th place, followed by 
freshman Tom Reynolds (59th place), Rich Weid- 
man (72nd place), Ed Kuri (104th place), Al 
Reinhart (133rd place), John Lucas (140th place), 
and freshman Gary Kampmeyer (150th place) to 
round the team at the L.V.C. Invitational. Coach 
"Doc" Berthold stated that the team did well, 
despite the state colleges overpowering the invita- 
tional. He also said that it was their first meet of the 
season. Next week, our harriers will be traveling to 
Wilkes Colleges. The will be running against the 
Wilkes' Colonels and Kings Monarches. Good luck, 

defense had control, quarterback Cole flipped a 
pass to receiver Tom Kincaide for what was to be 
the final score of the day for both teams. 

The Aggies took the kickoff at their 26 and on 
3rd down O'Neill fired to Tankersley for 45 yards to 
the Widener 35. The drive came up short when a 
halfback pass from Losco to Tankersley was picked f* 
off. Widener then drove and attempted a futile field 
goal. With minutes remaining, the Aggies tried to 
put another score on the board. A pass from O'Neill 
to Nick Russo and two fifteen-yard runs by Russo 
gave the Aggies a 1st and goal at the Widener 5. 
Two unsuccessful runs and a pass failed. Both 
teams had the ball twice before the final gun but 
could not score. 

Despite the loss, the Aggies had many bright 
spots in both the offense and defense. Sophomore 
quarterback Tom O'Neill and senior receiver Mark 
Tankersley showed glimpses of what could be Del 
Val's best passing game in years. Mark pulled in 
three passes for 98 yards. On the defensive side 
tackles Al Applegate and Dave Eggleston held 
Widener in check while linebackers Tim Boyes and 
Mark Bream played aggressive ball, sacking the 
Widener quarterback on occasion. 

The next home game is September 19 vs. 
Albright. Come out and support your team. 

Sports Editorial: 


Back just as little as ten years ago. the NFL and 
AFL were two different entities which matched their 
best in the Super Bowl. In 1971, the two merged 
forming the NFL which, as it is today, was divided 
into the National and American Conferences. This 
would be fine but since that time the two con- 
ferences have been playing teams outside their con- 
ference and the Super Bowl which was once a 
clamactic ending to the season is nothing more than 
the last game. Because the Eagles made the Super 
Bowl last season the people in this area failed to 
realize that Oakland had more revenge coming, for 
the loss to the Eagles during the season. 1 mean the 
Raiders lost their division by only one game and 
with another win (the Eagles game for example) 
would have won their division and not had to play 
the wild card game. The Raiders over came this, 
but a look at the Eagles' Schedule this season 
shows that not only do they play four games out of 
the conference but they are all from the AFC East. 
This may not only cause the Eagles a playoff posi- 
tion, but what could it do to the AFC East. Is 
money in pro-football that big that we must match 
the powers, together during the regular season, no 
matter what conference?

Vol. XV. No. 3 

Friday. September 25, 1981 




by Martha Gehringer 

"Sweets for the sweets, nuts for the nutty." 
Maybe this is what the Horticulture Class of 1981 
had in mind when they presented to the College 
the new Nut Tree Orchard. But whatever their 
reasoning, the orchard is a welcome addition to the 
educational facilities here at DVC. 

This project was undertaken by the members of 
the 1981 Hort class with no outside help or sugges- 
tion. They selected, planted, and put out their per- 
sonal money for the trees. There is a plaque in the 
Hort display case of the Ag Building Lobby listing 
the students who were involved. 

The various types of nuts in the orchard include 
walnut, chestnut, pecan, hican (a hickory nut- 
pecan cross), butternut, and hardy almond. This is 
the second attempt to establish a nut orchard at 
DVC. The first one succumbed to vandalism, and 
an overall poor location. The new orchard is in a 
more visible and desirable place. For those who 
desire to see it, it is between the Ag Machinery 
Building and the railroad tracks. 

The orchard manager is in charge of the orchard 
and is responsible for its care. In the future the Hort 
department is planning on expanding the orchard 
and eventually, perhaps in 5 years, harvesting a 
crop. No crop can be expected in the near future 
because of the long juvenile stage of nut trees. 
Right now there is no specific course in nut cul- 
ture, but the orchard will be utilized in advanced 
pomology as well as in other courses.

Progress Report: Student Center 

by G. Todd 

Plans for the student center have not been forgotten. Even though we, the students, can see no 
progress, many people are busy with the preliminaries for the new center. 

The hold back at the present time is, quite simply, money. The College has applied for funds, but has 
had no reply. A Development Office has also been formed. The function of this office is to plan and 
execute methods of money raising. 

Preliminary plans have been drawn for the structure, but no plan can be approved for the project until 
the sum of available funds is known. An architect has been hired and is working on the project. 

Presently, it is hoped that the two-story structure, to be located in the area between the gym^ and Rt. 
202, will include the following: snack, auditorium, offices for Student Government Organizations, of- 
fices for Student Life Services, book store, student store. Post Office, game room, Placement Office, In- 
firmary, radio station, offices for Student Publications, a staff apartment. Alumni meeting room, T.V. 
room, Coffee House room, and a locker area for commuting students. What the new center finally does 
include will depend on available funds. 

No date has been set for the groundbreaking for the new center. We will keep you informed on 
further developments of the project. 

Where Does Your 


Go and Why the 


on events? 

Yes, I have received the feedback that many 
students resent the price increase on some of the 
Social Events in Sept. I think you will better under- 
stand and appreciate what is happening if I present 
our financial situation. Each student pays a substan- 
tial student activities fee with tuition. This money is 
divided by Student Government to cover costs of 
the following: 


R A Programs 


Pool Hall 

Replaced Equipment 


Social House programming 


Publications (on campus & off) 


Coffee Houses 


plus Novelty events; and misc. 

(i.e., phone bills, buses for off campus events) 

All that, spreads the budget pretty thin. 

As 1 am sure you are all too aware of increased 
price, so too have our entertainment costs increas- 
ed. Unfortunately, entertainment costs are exceed- 
ing the national inflation rate while our budget 
hasn't increased at all. Most of our dance bands 
range from $450 to $1,200; movies range from 
approximately $250 to $500 each. 

I hoped by bringing back a little at the door we 
could continue providing high quality entertain- 
ment for you. We never even break even at the 
door to cover the total costs of an event; we're just 
trying to slow the rapid depletion of the budget. 

Another point to be seriously considered is when 
we sign contracts for big events like Pure Prairie 
League, we must make sure we have enough 
money in the budget to cover the costs of the event 
if not a single ticket is sold because if something 
happens here at DVC so the show must be cancell- 
ed on short notice, we're obligated to pay the group 
and we'd still be expected to reimburse tickets! To 
give you an idea of the sums we are discussing, we 
estimate out total costs of presenting Pure Prairie 
League to be $14,000.00! Therefore, cash flow 
back into the budget is essential before other events 
can be booked. 

Take a look at the Sept. calendar. We provided 
you with 15 social events. Six were free of admis- 
sion, two cost 50C, six cost 99C/$1.00, and only 
one cost $3.00. You could attend the entire mon- 
ths worth of events at a total cost of $9.97. How 
many other things would you spend $10 on with- 
out thinking twice? Even high schools often charge 
$2 for a dance and a commercial movie, a theatre 
charges $3.50 for one movie. (I even found a 
poster the other day that was an ad for a dance held 
here in 1971 where they charged $1.00 admission 
— that's 10 years ago.) 

We are not trying to make money by what has 
been charged. We are trying to keep the calendar 
as filled as possible to entertain you. Believe me, 
there is no budget left when May rolls around. So 
you owe it to yourselves to come out and see 
what's going on — you won't be sorry — besides, 
it's your activities fee that makes it all possible! 

If you would like any further details on this 
subject, come to a Student Government meeting.

Missy's Inn 

by Mike Jaskolka 

There's a new girl in town, and her name is 
Missy. While we were enjoying our summer vaca- 
tions, Doylestown was welcoming Missy's Inn to it's 
restaurant community. The newly remodeled build- 
ing is a real eye catcher from the outside, with it's 
bay window full of plants and the etched glass 
silhouettes of Missy on the doors. Don't be too 
taken by the fancy exterior and the re-decorated 
Victorian style interior. 

Missy's Inn has the most comfortable and relax- 
ing atmosphere of any restaurant I've been to, I just 
wish the food was as noteworthy. The owners, 
prior to opening Missy's Inn, operated a diner and 
much of their food preparation reflects this. I had 
the Breaded Milk Fed Veal Parmigiana ($6.10), of 
which a generous portion of veal was served, and it 
was pleasing to the taste. On another occasion I 
tried the Boiled Filet of Flounder ($6.95), it was 
good tasting, but didn't leave much of a lasting im- 
pression. My date had a salad specialty — Shrimp 
Royal ($5.95) topped with gulf shrimp, slices of 
tomato, hard boiled eggs, and potatoe salad. The 
salad was overabundant, and big enough for 3 peo- 
ple. The salad was very tasty. Offered with the 
main platters is your choice of two vegetables and 
dinner rolls. Salad does not come with the meal, 
but can be substituted for a vegetable and extra 
charge. The salad that I was served was that of a 
diner; some lettuce, a piece of tomato, and 
smoothercd with dressing. Not a good reflection of 
what was to come. 

Other main platters include: Filet Mignon with 
Onion Rings ($11.95), Fried Egg Plant Parmigiana 
with Spaghetti ($3.95), Fried Combination

1 am writing on behalf of all of those women who 
had lived previously in Miller Hall and who ex- 
pected to live there this year. For two years I lived 
in Miller, braving the forces bearing down on the 
building (i.e., no screens, crooked beds, leaking 
ceiling, etc.) and finally learned to accept them. 

Hearing of the reputation that Miller Hall has 
established, I and others did our best to give it 
character. We played music out the windows of 
room B-1 for all of the commuter students and 
passing students; we acquired a certain atmosphere 
that was most soothing for visitors, and we offered 
some extravagant after school activities; who could 
forget "graffiti nite" at Miller? 

So now what happens? Those hospitable, all 
together good people were "kicked out" and made 
to pay an all time record for dorm damages. Then 
residence life cleansed the place up so nice and 
gave it to freshmen. I visited it recently and almost 
cried because our beloved Miller Hall was dead. 
Just a few months ago it was bubbling over with life. 

When the time comes, I and many others will try 
to get "our home" back. We hope Miller Hall will 
come alive again. 

Still suffering,

Thank you for the new furniture in the lounge. 
Mod-u-form is so comfortable and fragrant. It will 
improve our study habits greatly. No longer will we 
feel compelled to go to the lounge and watch T.V. 
The furniture has proven to be a great tourist attrac-' 
ticn. After all life size Romper Room or Gumby or 
Barbie Doll furniture is so unusual. No one can get 
over how indestructable it is, no matter how hard 
you jump on it, it comes back in the same form. We 
now know how Barbie and Ken dolls feel when 
they sit on their furniture. About the fragrance, 
can it be purchased in quanity? This way all the 
rooms can smell so uniquely. Or better yet, so 
bombs of this scent can be made and our enemies 
asphyxiated. Thanks again. 

Dining Out 

cont'd from page 1 

Seafood Platter ($7.50), and Julienne Salad 
($4.25). Missy's Inn also has a large selection of hot 
and cold sandwiches. Prices range from $2.50 to 
$4.95. Most of the prices looked a bit high for the 

The dessert made up for what was lost in the 
meal. A delicious looking dessert board is 
presented to you to choose your favorite. Some of 
their specialties include Peach Malba, Liqueur Par- 
faits, and my favorite, Cheescake smothered with 
cherries. I found the cheesecake most delightful, 
and a fitting close to the evening's dining. 

Missy's Inn is open Mon. thru Fri. 1 1 am - 2 am; 
Sat. 4 pm - 2 am; Sun. 4 pm - 10 pm. It is located 
at 37 N. Main Street in Doylestown right across

Dear Aggie^ 

Dear Everyone, 

Welcome back to another school year! I hope 
everyone is enjoying the fall semester so far. 

I'm writing all of you to invite you to write in 
about any and all problems you may have. You can 
submit letters to P.O. Box 1086 and I'll be sure 
you will receive a response. 

I hope to hear from you soon, 
Dear Aggie 

A Now Hint: 

With practice, you can 
perfect the technique of 
making the bed while you're 
still In it! Next time the 
snooze alarm gives its last 
blast, try this: stretch out in 
the middle of the bed. Pull 
and straighten the covers up 
over you. Then billow them, 
ease yourself out as they fall . 
Now all that's left to do is 
straighten the top.

On Tuesday, September 15, there was a show- 
down on beliefs as some 900 people joined togeth 
er to "debate" the proposal of the Point Pleasant 
water pump in the Bucks County area. The project, 
which will drain 95 million gallons of water a day 
from the Delaware River, was supported by 8 
speakers, while 44 spoke against it. This mass 
quantity of water is proposed to serve the water 
needs of Bucks and Montgomery County, as well 
as to provide water for the nuclear power station 
started in Limerick. Montgomery County. (This 
water, used for cooling purposes, will only be 
boiled away after usage.) 

The impact of this pumping station alone on the 
environment will be phenomenal. Aside from the 
mass erosion along the Delaware River and Merrill 
Creek, the dam will cause the extinction of many 
fish, birds, and other wildlife that rely on the 
Delaware River and sunounding area for survival. 
The natural beauty of the Delaware region will 
slowly deteriorate, for although we are the first 
county to undergo such damming and pumping of 
this water, who's to say how many others will 
follow? We will only be setting a precedent that will 
be easy to duplicate. 

Another reason so many people are opposed to 
this project is the amount of money it will cost to 
back such development. It will cost $35 million for 
the pumps alone, $150 million for the reservoir re- 
quired in Merrill Creek, plus $4 billion for the power 
plant. All this for our "convenience." Yes, close to 
$5 billion for a mere water shortage. Surely there 
are other methods that have been overlooked be- 
cause of the insistence that this is the "only way." Is 
the purpose of this water pump simply to provide 
better means of water, or is it to provide jobs, in- 
crease development, and line the pockets of pro- 
moters? I believe the later to be the underlying 
reasoning behind this project." 

Rep. James C. Greenwood of Point Pleasant 
pointed out that Bucks County refuses to use water 
drawn from filteration plants below Trenton 
because this water is of lesser quality than that of 
Point Pleasant. However, all those in the Trenton, 
Philadelphia area use this water. If it is all right for 
these people, why is it "unacceptable" to those in 
this area? We seem to be falling short in providing 
"equality" to all. 

Development and growth in this beautiful farm 
area will soon burst into an uncontrollable mess. 
Look what has happened to such areas in Northern 
and Central Jersey as convenience was offered 
with the building of reservoirs and nuclear plants. 
Do you want that for Pa. and other states as well? It 
seems the more "convenient" life gets, the less 
beautiful it remains. 

That is why it is imperative for all those who 
believe in the keeping of the environment, the 
fighting off of development, and the unneccessary 
spending of your money to help support the end of 
this project. It is not too late to stop this distructive 
proposal, for if this country is a "true" democracy, 
the people's voice must be listened to, and the 
louder this voice, the easier this job will be. A peti- 
tion is under construction, and we need your sup- 
port and ideas. If interested, please stop by Cooke 
114; your signature is needed.

The Point Pleasant Pumping Station was to 
be built at Point Pleasant in Plumstead Township, 
Bucks County. However, for the time being, 
Plumstead Government officials have denied any 
building rights in their township. The pumping sta- 
tion is going to be used to pump water out of the 
Delaware in to Bucks and Montgomery counties for 
municipal use and its main function will be to cool 
the nuclear reactor in Limerick, Montgomery 

1 liis past week a hearing was held on Tuesday, 
September 15 at Bucks County Community Col- 
lege to determine whether or not the Army Corp. 
of Engineers should reevaluate the environmental 
impact such a project would pose to the Delaware 
River and surrounding counties of PA, N.J., and 

Approximately 800 concerned people attended 
the hearing. Professors and roughly 40 students 
also went to BCCC to engage in any way possible 
in the fight against the project . For every 8 speakers 
against the project there was only 1 person for the 
project. 80 people signed up to speak out against 
the pumping station; however only 30 people got 
to speak from 7:30 to 10:00 p.m. 

When a speaker from the Delaware River Basin 
Commission spoke for the project, a turmoil broke 
out among the contractors who were to build the 
monstrosity. It nearly ended in a knock-down, drag 
out which would have added a little more vigor to 
the hearing. Many of those who spoke represented 
voting districts of hundreds of people who were op- 
posed to the project. 

When the hearing ended around 12:00, many 
were optimistic that there was enough support 
demonstrated to force the Corp. of Engineers to 
redo their far outdated environmental impact 
study. Watch the papers and T.V. as more details 
become available as this foolish project drama 
continues to unfold.

Is there life after College? 

by Joanne Lubanski 

On Tuesday, September 15, DVC Social House 
presented a hilarious program on our college 

The skit, done by Bill Alexander, was both funny 
and thought provoking. He showed the various 
years of college (freshman, sophomore, junior, and 
senior) and helped us to laugh at ourselves. He also 
tried to impress upon us that we should be our- 
selves and not be pressured into careers and lives 
that we don't want. 

Special thanks to Social House and Bill Alex- 
ander. In spite of a long delay in starting, the show 
was well worth watching.

Aggies make an impressive uictori; in the home 


Win Home Opener, 27-0 

by Art Barillo 

Call it what you like, a high powered offensive 
game that totaled over 300 yards, a stingy defense 
that broke up an Albright wishbone allowing only 
88 yards and causing four turnovers or because 
Albright did not have starting quarterback Fran 
McKeon in the game, but it all added up to an im- 
pressive 27-0 victory in the home openfer, 21 of 
those points in the first quarter alone. 

As usual the defense was spectacular. On the first 
play of the game, the Aggies caused the Lions to 
fumble at their own 15. On the second Aggie play 
from the 13 yard line Cosmo Losco ran around the 
end for a T.D. @ 1:30 gone. 

On Albright's next possession they were forced to 
punt and Rod Bates returned the ball 34 yards to 
the Lion's 18 but the offense failed to score. The 
Aggies next score was set up by a 25 yard punt 
return of Bill Black which put the ball at the Lion's 
18 yard line. On second down an O'Neill pass to 
Mark Tankersley gave the Aggies 1st and goal at 
the 5. O'Neill ran it in himself to make it 14-0 @ 
3:37 remaining in the 1st quarter. It looked as 
though the offense was in high gear, for after an ex- 
change by both teams the Aggies had 1st and 10 at 
the Albright 47. After an imcompleted pass, O'Neill 
dropped back and found Tankersley at the 5 yard 
line and shook off 2 defenders for the T.D. 

It looked as though they would carry their surge 
into the second quarter, but neither team scored 
before the half. 

Driving from their own 46 Albright had a 1st and 
10 at the Aggie 25 and were determined to score. 
The attempt was stopped by the aggressive play of 
linebacker Ron Verra who dropped the Albright ball 
carrier for a loss and on the following play Jim 
Duncan picked off an Albright pass. 

On the 1st possession of the Aggies in the 3rd 
quarter they drove to the Lions 30 where freshman 
Bob Hudoka's 47 yard field goal attempt "was no 

Dan Rupp, who replaced O'Neill, was in- 
tercepted at our own 25 yard line where Albright 
ran it down to the 10. On second down, AI Ap- 
plegate recovered an Albright fumble which was to 
set up an 89 yard drive highlighted by a 25 yard 
pass from O'Neill to Tankersley, 13 yard reverse to 
Tom Kirk and a pass to Nick Russo at the 1. 
Penalties put the ball back to the 21 where on third 
down O'Neill hit Tankersley again and it was 4th 
and inches for a first. Losco then ran in for his 
second tally of the day and Del Val's final score. 

"A key factor was that from the very outset we 
were able to take away the wishbone," said Coach 
Al Wilson, which the linebacking corps of Ron 
Verra, Tim Boyes, Clay Funk, Mark Bream, and 
George Wajda did. Wilson stated that the offensive 
strongpoint was execution and a better passing at- 
tack. "The big difference being that we have a wide 
receiver we can go to," namely Tankersley who' 
hauled in 5 passes for 127 yards. 


This year the "Bananas" are prepared to meet 
the new season with eleven returning letter winners 
and with nine freshmen who are competing for a 
spot on the team that won the Northeast Division of 
the Middle Atlantic Conference in 1980. 

Key offense players returning are letter winners 
Diane Bradley, Karen Rogers, and Kelly Kerner. 
Some of the freshmen talent vying for position are 
Melissa Weaver, Willingboro, N.J., who is known 
as a jack-of-all trades. Nancy Brake of Mercersburg, 
PA, is trying to win a starting position at the link 
spot. Carol Serik, from Wm. Tcnnent High School, 
has the skill to grab a defensive spot as a fullback. 

Their first home game and first M.A.C. opponent 
will be Friday at 4:00 p.m. against the Lady Mules 
of Muhlenberg College. Come out and support the

The Harriers of DVC traveled to Wilkes College 
on Saturday, September 19. They competed 
against the Colonels of Wilkes College and the 
Monarches of Kings College. The race was won by 
Francis Awanya from Kings College with a time of 
25:44. Jim Parsons finished next with a time of 
26:19, only 35 seconds behind Awanya. Rich 
Weaver (4th) finished next for DVC, followed by 
Tom Reynolds (10th), Rich Weidman (11th), and 
Jim Trainer (13th). Carl Pellington (15th) and Al 
Reinhart (17th) displaced Wilkes College fifth Har- 
rier to help give DVC its first victory of the season 
with a score of DVC 25 - Wilkes 32. DVC then fall- 
ing short against Kings College with score being 
Kings 25 - DVC 30. Next week, our Han-iers will be 
traveling to Moravin College. They will be running 
against Moravin and Widener College. Good luck 


Whizzes by Academy of the New Church 
Winning 15 - 42 

by Lorri Gerus 

Del Val's women runners return this year with flying 
colors as they grabbed the first five places from 
ANC. This was the first dual cross country meet for 
an organized women's team in school history. 

Jeanne Cranney led the Del Val team with a 
21:52 time in the 3. 15 mile course at the Academy 
of the New Church. 

Excitement builds as Lady Spikers win 1st home 

Women's Volleyball Team 
Progresses to Victory 

Wins First Home Game 3 games to 1 

by Lorri Gerus 

The Lady Spikers pushed ahead last Thursday 
night when they trounced Gwynedd Mercy 3 
games to 1 . This match was history making in that It 
was the first home game ever won. 

When the students crowded the bleachers to 
cheer on one of Del Val's newest teams, they cer- 
tainly got their money's worth. All the games were 
exciting, with co-captain senior Patti Rissinger as 
the outstanding player. Missy Young was able to 
place spikes with more control and force. 

Another important factor to the team was Wanda 
Perugini's energy as she was always in position 
to pull the ball back into play. First year player 
Sandy Yerkes was gaining experience and playing 
well. Also, co-captain Gail Garth waite's serves and 
game experience supported the team on the way to 

This thrilling match was second of the season, 
with the scores of 15-0, 15-7, 14-16, and 15-3. 
Their first match was Sept. 15 against the tough 
team of Ursinus. Although the Spikes put up a 
fight they lost 3 games to 0, the scores being 2-15, 
14-16, and 11-15. 

But now the Spikers must pull themselves 
together after losing two varsity players, Michelle 
Ferry and Jean Stump, and junior varsity player 
Teresa Lotorto, who were injured in a car accident. 
Both varsity players were key members to the 
team, with Teresa improving daily. All three will be 
missed, and it is hoped that they will have a speedy 
recovery to come and cheer the team on. Get well 
soon girls.

The dedicated, hard working, and slightly crazy 
individuals of the Livestock and Dairy Judging 
teams returned to school on August 24th for a 
week of "training camp". They traveled the coun- 
tryside evaluating animals from local farms as well 
as the school's animals. The teams also worked on 
oral reasons. All these late nights and early morn- 
ings of practice just for a few contests. The livestock 
team takes part in four contests during the season. 
They include: Eastern States Expo., Springfield 
MA; Keystone International, Harrisburg, PA; 
Eastern National, Timonium, MD; and National 
Collegiate Competition, Louisville, KY. 

The dairy team participates in three contests. 
They include: Eastern States Expo., All American 
contest, Harrisburg, and The Central National 
Collegiate Contest. Madison, WI. 

Both teams left Sept. 16th for the Eastern States 
Expo., contest on Sept. 19th. This allowed for time 
to practice more at farms along the way to sharpen 
their skills even further. At the Big E, DVC's 
livestock team competed against VPl, U. of Ga., 
Penn State. UCONN, Maryland, Cobelskill, and 

The members of the livestock team are Jeff Arm- 
strong, Deb Ashe, Bernie Dawd, Sue DeLong, 
Joan Gunselman, Dave Hoick, and Tim Schuller 
with Mr. Gilbert as coach. At Eastern States 
everyone on the team judged 12 classes and gave 
six sets of reasons. Only the 5 highest scores on the 
team counted. In a close contest with a wide variety 
of classes, the team placed 5th in swine and beef 
and 5th overall. Winning the contest was VPI, 2nd 
Ga., 3rd UCONN, and 4th Penn State. High 
member of the team was Dave Hoick with a score 
of 783 out of a possible 900, placing 16th overall. 

The dairy judging team members are: Brad Bei- 
del, Jane Bomgardner. Bruce Beck, Doug Hart- 
kopf, Ed Kulp, and Tom Nauman with Dr. Harner 
as coach. 

The dairy team did very well on their first road 
trip. They placed 9th out of 13 teams with VPl tak- 
ing first honors at the Big E. High member of the 
team was Doug Hartkopf being 10th high individual 

What's News at D.V.C. 

by Tony Novak 

Mass Communications, a three-credit elective, 
may be offered for the first time ever at Delaware 
Valley College during the Spring Semester. Mass 
Communications is designed for students interested 
in gaining an introduction to the media. Media, 
such as this newspaper, have provided each of us 
with opportunities to acquire knowledge and un- 
derstanding about a virtually limitless array of sub- 
jects, ideas, and events throughout the world. 
Besides being informative, the mass media has 
opened up an entirely new approach to business 
and the associative fields. 

"By the time the average child enters 
school he has already spent more hours 
learning about this world from TV. 
than he would, spend in a classroom 
earning a college degree. By the time 
he is 18, he has spent nearly 25,000 
hours in front of the television set 
and has seen approximately 350, (X)0 

Nicholas Johnson 

The course will survey the mass media systems 
with the focus upon how they operate in Arperican 
culture. A combination of informative and practical 
approaches will provide experiences in print, film, 
radio, and television. In conjunction with both cam- 
pus and community media outlets and the use of 
the college's audio-visual equipment opportunities 
for practical experience will be provided. 

According to Mr. Lombardi, the prime motivator 
behind the course. Mass Communication was 
created to meet today's needs of our students. A re- 
cent Alumni questionnaire strongly suggested more 
courses in the communication field. The only prere- 
quisite is that the student has passed Speech and 
can fit the course into his schedule. If you are in- 
terested stop by soon and see Mr. Lombardi in his 
office (Rudley-Neumann Gym) . You could become 
part of making the course a reality. 

After the Eastern States contest the team traveled to Harrisburg for the All American contest. The 
team had an outstanding day placing 4th out of 23 teams with Cal. Poly. Tech. winning the contest. 
The team won the Holstein division of the contest. Two members placed in the top ten individuals 
overall. Jane Bomgardner placed 4th and Brad Beidel placed 8th.

New Academic Credit Rules 
But Why? 

by Martha Gehringer 

Congratulations to the freshmen and sopho- 
mores who are the recipients of the administration's 
recent decision on reducing the credits required 
to graduate. It is now 128 for all majors except 
Business which has the requirement of 126. 

This decision came to pass over the summer. 
Each year the curriculum of the college is reviewed. 
It was found that the credits required to graduate 
were higher than those of other colleges in this 
area. It was then further investigated to determine if 
a reduction in credits would effect the student's 
ability to take the necessary professional, science, 
and humanities courses. When it was seen that all 
these courses could be fit in, the decision was made 
to reduce the requirements. 

The theory behind this, according to Dr. Black- 
mon. is that the student will no longer have to work 
harder than students at other colleges for the same 
degree. Also with a lighter class load, the student 
teacher ratio in the classroom should be reduced 
and therefore provide for the student a> higher 
quality of learning. This then is the "goal" of the ad- 
ministration in order to uphold. the "standyds" of 
the college. 

The ambitious student can still take 16 credits 
over the requirements at the rate of 18 credits per 
semester. It will be up to the student and their ad- 
visor to try to make the best use of the elective 
credits available. The required courses have re- 
mained the same as far as number of credits and 
still being required. Any revisions of the curriculum 
will be up to the individual departments. Along with 
the reduced credits, comes reduction in the flexibili- 
ty a student has in their choice of courses. And flex- 
ibility on the student's part can be costly to the col- 
lege. Could this be the real reason for the cut in 

That is the explanation given by Dr. Blackmon 
but things still seem to be unfair about the new 

• Why should the sophomores and freshmen have 
it easier that the seniors and juniors? What ever 
became of equality for all?

Dear Aggie, 

Dear Aggie, 

I'm finally a senior (yeah for me!) and things are 
moving along smoothly this semester except for 
one thing. I am scheduled to do my seminar in six 
weeks. To say the least I'm scared to speak in front 
of anyone. Do you have any suggestions as to how 
I might overcome people-seminar phobia? 

Dear Fumbling, 

Just find a topic you feel comfortable with. Do all 
of your research and you're halfway there. After 
you have written your seminar practice speaking in 
front of the mirror. After you've done that three or 
four times ask two friends to come over and listen. 
When you're satisfied with your performance ask 
three more friends over for a preview. You should 
feel more at ease when the real time comes along 
because practice does make perfect. 

If this shouldn't work just picture everyone in 
his/her underwear. Remember they're human too.

Out From Under the Editors' Desk 


by Tony Novak 

Most students have heard of plans for major college projects for coming years, although information 
is scarce and rumors have been misleading. Fourteen projects have been targeted for the college over 
the next 5 years. Heading the list are the Student Center, the small animal lab, a new dairy barn, a 
horse barn, and a new water and fire sprinkler system for the dormitories. Further down the list are 
plans to enlarge the railroad underpass (to allow the college to expand beyond the railroad track), 
renovation of Ulman Hall, new intramural fields and parking areas. 

To meet the challenge of completing these projects, the college has recently created a Development 
Office to coordinate fundraising activities. This office will be expected to raise about $5 million dol- 
lars over the next five years. This office will include Mr. Sumner, alumni director, and Mr. McClelland, 
public relations. 

The funding will come from alumni, corporate donations, and specific funding organizations. Many 
corporate donations are secured by individual department chairmen, working independently of the 
main fundraising office. Dr. Wolf, Vice President for Planning, explains that major donations are 
not secured by simply asking for them. Rather, the donor must be convinced that he has a strong inter- 
est in the project. For this task each department, with its own business contacts, is vital to fund raising 

In the near future, alumni will have a choice of about 10 separate project funds to contribute to. In 
this way, a horticulture student may be more likely to contribute to a greenhouse fund that the general 
purpose alumni fund, while dairy students would be inclined to contribute to his own department's 
project. As a net result, alumini contributions could be much greater. 

Our administrators feel that the completion of any of the targeted projects will be speeded by having 
all fund raising coordinated under one office. In fact, money for many of these projects has already 
been applied for. But, as Dr. Wolf said, satisfaction will not come until we see shovels in the ground, 
and these efforts finally take a physical form. 


GSL Changes 

The Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1981 and that portion of the Act governing the Guaranteed 
Student Loan Program has now been agreed upon by both Houses of Congress and was signed into 
law by the President Thursday, August 13. Under it. those eligible for loans will continu<' to enjoy an in- 
school interest subsidy but the cost to the government of that subsidy will be reduced by the borrower 
being required to pay an up-front fee of 5% of the amount of the loan. That 5% fee will be used to help 
pay the in-school interest subsidy. 

The most significant change in the Guaranteed Student Loan Program, however, wil' be in the way 
family income will affect eligibility. Under the pending law, only students whose gross adjusted family 
income is $30,000 or less will "automatically" qualify for loans: Those with higher family incomes will 
have to demonstrate need under a test to be devised by the Secretary of Education. The Secretary has 
stated that he is mindful of the needs of the middle-class and will establish a needs test that will be 
liberal. Congress has rescrvedio itself the power of veto over the test if either House does not like it. 

Outlined below are highlights of the new legislation. 

1. Effective October 1, 1981, there will be a $30,000 limit of family adjusted gross income (AGI) for 
student loan eligibility on a subsidized basis, with a "needs test" required for student loan eligi'nility 
above that amount. 

• The Secretary of Education will design a formula for the "needs test" to be conducted by the schools. 
The formula will be subject to approval by the Senate and House of Representatives. 

• Students with family adjusted gross income of $30,000 or less will automatically qualify for student 
loans as at present. 

• Students with family AGI income (including student income) of more than $30,000 will qualify for 
Federal interest benefits only to the extent of "unmet need" as determined by the school. "Unmet need" 
is defined as estimated cost of attendance less expected family contribution plus any estimated student 
financial assistance reasonably available to the student. 

• The amount of student loan eligible for Federal interest benefits shall be $1,000 for those students 
whose family AGI is greater than $30,000 and who show need equal to or greater than $500 but less 
than $1,000. 

Students with family adjusted gross income above $30,000, who do not qualify according to the 
"need test," will still be able to obtain fully guaranteed student loans, but there will be no Federal interest 
subsidy and no Special Allowance for lenders. This provision is effective on loans which are disbursed 
on or after October 1, 1981. 

• The "needs test" when the AGI exceeds $30,000 per year will be required in all cases where the 
school completes or signs the school's portion of the loan application on or after October 1. 1981. 

2. Effective 10 days after enactment on August 13, the borrowing student will be required to pay a 5% 
one-time origination surcharge or fee to be retained by lenders as an offset against the interest subsidy 
and Special Allowance. This fee will affect loans for which the lender has not yet sent or delivered the 
Promissory Note to the borrower for signature. 

• There is no such fee for loans under the Loans to Parents Program (now called Auxiliary Loans to 
Assist Students or ALAS) or Sallie Mae consolidated loans. 

3. The $3,000/15,000 independent undergraduate student loan borrowing limits for guaranteed stu- 
dent loans will be repealed effective October 1, 1981 and this is based on the date when the school's 
financial aid representative completes and signs the student's application. If the latter occurs after 
October 1. the independent undergraduate student will not be eligible for the GSL $3,000/15,000. 

4. All present categories of deferment are retained, but the six month grace period after deferments is 
eliminated effective October 1, 1981 on new loans. 

• Loans disbursed on or after October 1, 1981 will not be eligible for this six-month grace period while 
loans disbursed prior to that date will continue to be eligible. 

5. The minimum monthly repayment is increased from $30 to $50 (annually from $360 to $600) on 
new loans effective October 1 , 198 1 ; that is, on any loan which is disbursed by the lender to the student 
on or after October 1, 1981. 

6. The provision in the Special Allowance formula for rounding upward to the nearest 1/8 of 1% will 
be eliminated for all loans disbursed by the lender on or after October 1, 1981. 

7. Truth-in-Lending Act requirements relating to the 5% student origination surcharge are waived until 
August 1, 1982, but the fee must be disclosed to the borrower with respect to amount and method of 

8. The interest rate for Loans to Parents (now called Auxiliary Loans to Assist Students) will be 14% ef- 
fective October 1. 1981. Independent undergraduate students and graduate or professional students 
will be eligible to borrow under ALAS as well as parents. 

• In addition to borrowing up to $5,000/25,000 under the Guaranteed Student Loan Program, 
graduate or professional students (if their estimated cost of attendance minus estimated financial 
assistance justifies it) may borrow an additional $3,000 per academic year to a cumulative total of 
$15,000 under ALAS. Thus, graduate or professional students can borrow a combined total of $8,000 
per year to a cumulative total of $40,000 under a combination of GSLP and ALAS. 

• This same "double borrowing" provision does not apply to independent undergraduate stu- 
dents. Such students can borrow only $2,500 per year to a cumulative $12,500 under both programs 

• The 14% interest rate under the ALAS program becomes effective for loans which are disbursed by 
the lender on or after October 1, 1981. 

• There is no Federal interest subsidy for ALAS loans, but the Special Allowance applies. 


Changing Landscapes of the World 

by Warren Lewis 

For centuries much land had remained clear of man's inhabitance. Many areas remained wilderness, 
uncharted and unexplored until the twentieth (20th) century. 

In the 1960's travel between continents exploded to an incredible flow of people to other countries 
besides their own. Tourism and trade, vacationing, and resorts became popular. Before people return- 
ed home, they would leave their names scrawled on a building, etched in the street, or spray painted on 
a boulder where it would remain as a reminder that "Bill or Joe or Momma was here". Some names are 
in mountainous areas that would have taken some people a great deal of time to do their work. Why 
will some people go to so much trouble to mark the landscapes of the world? Is there nothing that can 
be done about it? 




by Julian Prundeanu, Chairman 
Research Committee 

The Faculty Research Committee is urging the 
Seniors, and particularly those interested in 
graduate studies, to avail themselves of the 
Senior Special Problems program. Additional 
information regarding the program can be ob- 
tained from Dr. Miller for students enrolled in 
the Biology and Chemistry Departments, Dr. 
Brubaker for the Animal Science area, Dr. 
Ronald Muse for Plant Science area, or from the 
Chairman of the Research Chairman. 
Procedures for Senior Special Problems 

1. Students in Senior Special Problems 
should have a minimum cumulative ac- 
ademic average of 2.5 before registra- 
tion for Special Problems. This figure 
(2.5) may be subject to revision for a 
specific department on the approval of 
the department and division chairman 
in consultation with the Chairman of the 
Research Committee. 

2. Students may register for a maximum of 
three credits of Senior Special Problems 
with the approval of their Department 

3. The deadlines for the Senior Special 
Problems are as follows: 

I Research Proposals Nov. 30, 1981 
II Final Results 

- oral presentation April 30, 1982 

- written final paper May 10, 1982 
The following letter was received by the 

Research Committee last year. 


I feel led to jot down a few thoughts concern- 
ing the Senior Special Program and what I've 
gained from it. There are very few people who 
get the opportunity to pursue their own indepen- 
dent research for credit as an undergraduate. 
The experience is invaluable — a "warm up" 
and drawing card for grad school, and in my 
case, the way I developed a deeply-rooted in- 
terest in a particular field of study. This disci- 
plined research regime was a lot of work, and 
many days an albatross around my neck, but the 
interest shown by grad schools, and knowing 
that I really did attempt to do something that 
no one has ever done before (and even had a 
small measure of success!), really make it all 

I can't understand why only a handful of peo- 
ple chose to take advantage of one of DVCs 
best programs in '79-'80. If this note finds its way 
into the library copy of my paper — listen — if 
you are at all considering graduate studies or 
even just have an interest in something, do some 
research here — make your mistakes here and 
not on a real thesis. I heard too many people say 
that they didn't have time. Believe me, I am 
living proof that you can make the time.

Philadelphia Entertainment 

This reporter hates to sit still. Action "W" 
journeyed to Philadelphia to see Neil Simon's 
Thei;'re Phi/ing Our Song at the Forrest Theatre 

The show receives my Al rating. It has been 
held over until October 17, which should give you 
plenty of time to get there. 

The Forrest is at 11th and Walnut so you could 
take the train into Philadelphia and hoof it or drive 
and park in one of the many garages. If you're 
lucky you may find a space on the street. The main 
thing is to get there before the show leaves. If you 
would like to know what the show is about, or have 
any questions, see me (Warren Lewis) on campus 
or stop up to Goldman 229. 

Pippin arrived at Del Val on Tuesday, Septem- 
ber 22 after difficulties in New York. People who 
planned to see the performance on Monday were 
turned away, those who could not come again 
Tuesday were reimbursed. 

On Tuesday, Pippin "got off the ground". This 
was a preview performance before it goes to Broad 
way. The stage props brought to Del Val were min 
imal and the special effects were limite ! because it 
was being performed in a gymnasium. 

The cast did an outstanding job with the show. At 
times, their voices did not carry well because of a 
lack of amplification The musical accompaniment 
was excellent; their opening number was "Magic To 
Do". The dancing was their quality point. 

At the end of the performance the plot turned 
philosophical; too intense for many viewers. 1 was 
told this was not how it was to end Speaking of the 
end, my derriere was about as sore as my neck. Sit- 
ting in the bleachers may have been a partial strain 
on the neck, but for those who sat behind the first 
three rows on the floor, seeing was all but impos- 
sible. This made enjoying the show all the more

'X uioutoWr LIT JJ4T MY CMfn' 

by Tony Novak 

Two young ladies, both new DVC students, 
competed last week for the Pennsylvania Dairy 
Princess crown. Nancy Brake of Franklin County 
and Karen Hobaugh of Adams County competed 
in the contest based on beauty, poise, speaking 
ability, and sincerity of interest in the dairy field. 
Both girls qualified for the state level competition by 
winning similar county contests. The main event 
calls on the girls to give a short speech promoting 
the dairy industry. Nancy's speech explained the 
new Real Seal campaign which will be highly pub- 
licized by the dairy association in coming months. 

The winner of the state contest is requested to 
suspend her schooling or career for the following 
year while she carries out the responsibilities of 
dairy princess. 

This put Nancy and Karen at a disadvantage 
from the start, winning the contest would probably 
have meant leaving the school life they had just 

For this year, the talents of these girls wmII be 
reserved for DVC alone. Congratulations to both 
Karen and Nancy for their accomplishments. 

The Copper Door 

by Mike Jaskolka 

The Copper Door is a popular Bucks County 
restaurant, specializing in American and Italian 
cuisine. Most of their menu items are from the sea: 
Broiled Alaskan Crab Feast, Baked Stuffed Shrimp, 
Sauteed Scallops, and for you land lubers there is a 
fair share of beef and veal dishes. The Copper Door 
has an informal atmosphere, decorated in a mid 
1920's theme. 

I started my meal with a crock of baked onion 
soup, smoothered with lots of melted cheese. The 
entree consisted of a Prime New York Sirioin 
covered with sauteed mushrooms and a bearnaise 
sauce, and it was very tasty. My companion had 
the Bar-B-Que'd Spare Ribs which were very miich 
to her liking. 

Included with your dinner selection is a Red 
Carpet Salad Bar. At your table is a small card with 
many salad toppings (articokes, dilled caulifbwcr, 
pepperonichi, alfalfa sprouts, and about 17 others) 
to choose from, and you can have as many as you 
want. A choice of a baked potato, fried idahoes, or 
a fresh vegetable comes with your meal. One of the 
highlights of the meal is the hot french bread stick, 
which was about 3 feet long, and very good. Meals 
range in price from $7.95 to $15.00 per meal. Two 
can enjoy a meal for under $40.00 which includes 
meal, dessert, drinks, and tip. A daily special is of- 
fered for $7.95 and the selections are taken from 
the regular menu with a substantial savings. This 
may not be an affordable restaurant to take a date 
to, but it would be a good place to take your 
parents on "Parent's Day". 

To get to the Copper Door take route 611 south 
5 miles, and it is just past the King's Plaza on your 
left. Their hours are 11:00 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. for 
lunch, dinner is served from 4:30 p.m. to 1:00 
a.m. Monday thru Saturday. On Sundays they are 
open from 4:00 - 10:00 p.m. No reservations

Spectacular Fall Hawk Migration 

by Helen Fitting 

How often have you crawled out of bed on a 
crisp autumn morning with an irresistible urge to 
drive somewhere far away, but didn't know where 
to go? The next time you are stricken with this 
strange affliction, may I suggest a trip up to the 
Hawk Mountain Sancturary, situated along the Kit- 
tatinny Ridge of the Appalachian Mountains. The 
unique geology and resulting air currents draw 
thousands upon thousands of hawks past the sanc- 
tuary lookouts each fall as they migrate southward. 
To date the largest number of birds sighted at Hawk 
Mountain in one day totaled 2,539 on the nine- 
teenth of September!! At present broadwinged 
sharp-shinned, red-tailed, and red-shouldered 
hawks as well as osprey, kestrel, and an occasional 
merlin or bald eagle have all been sighted. 

As a novice, hawk watching may be frustrating at 
first. Little tiny specks spotted two miles over the 
ridgetop often manage to look like bigger speciks in 
binoculars until your eyes are trained to recognize 
bird silhouettes. (Meanwhile the oldtime beside you 
can't decide if it's an immature sharp-shinned or a 
Cooper's hawk.) Birder's lingo can also be quite 
mystifying in the beginning. A "kettle" of "T.V.'s" 
does not mean someone sighted a teapot chock full 
of color portables, but rather a group of turkey 
vultures circling together in the sky. I've found that 
squinting unrelentlessly as you scan the horizon is 
worth every bit of eye strain, upon sighting your 
first osprey or eagle at close range. 

To get to Hawk Mountain from D.V.C. take Rt. 
202 down to 309, and follow 309 around Allen - 
town until you reach 22 west. Several miles down 
Rt. 22 near Lenhartsville take Rt. 143 and proceed 
north for four miles to a crossroad. At the crossroad 
turn left and follow the signs for Hawk Mtn. There is 
a minimal admission charge at the trailhead. Happy

Mark Tankerslei) — 188 ^id. school record. 

Al Applegate — defensive standout. 


Tankersley Sets School Record 

by Art Barillo 

Tom O'Neill's 59 yard scoring pass to Mark Tankersley with 2:30 minutes into the game once again 
set the offensive barrage in a 45-14 win over the Upsala Vikings. The Aggie aerial game was once again 
impressive with Tankersley hauling in 4 passes for 188 yards (2 of those for TD's) eclipsing the school 
record of 172 yards by Dan Guers in 1971. On the day O'Neill was 5 of 8 for 158 yards and 2 TD's. 

Del Val's next score was on a 73 yard punt return by senior cornerback Rod Bates as time ran out in 
the 1st quarter. 

The Aggies then put together an impressive 96-yard drive highlighted by a 57-yard pass from O'Neill 
to Tankersley and then an 8 yard pass to Tankersley in the end zone put the Aggies up 21-0. 

Upsala scored with 1:56 left in the half on a 78 yard 10 play drive capped by a 24-yard pass from 
quarterback Larry Simms to receiver John McAleavey making the score at the half 21-7. 

In the 3rd quarter freshman Bob Hudo^a added 3 more points for the Aggies to widen the margin at 
24-7. Four plays later in the 4th quarter an interception by cornerback John McFadden gave the Aggies 
the ball on their 30-yard line. Tom Kirk's halfback option to Tankersley was good for 64 yards putting 
the ball at the 6 yard line. Two plays later Eric Reynolds ran it in from the 1 to make the score 31-6. 

Del Val's final 2 scores came on 2-3 yard runs by Bill Black on drives of 89 yards in 12 plays and 51 
yards in 5 plays respectively. 

Upsala's second score came on an 85 yard pass again from Simms to McAleavey. 

Strong footed freshman Bob Hudoka made good on all of his PAT'.<; and 1 field goal giving him 12 
points in 3 games and showing much promise for the future. 

The loss on the day for the Aggies came at the hands of senior guard and captain Greg Setta who 
went out in the 1st quarter with a knee injury and will possibly miss the rest of the season. Senior tackle 
Dave Eggleston is bothered by a sprained knee and could possibly miss a couple of games.

On Saturday the 26th the Men's Cross Country 
Team participated in a double bill meet. Jim Parson 
finished 2nd with a time of 25:54. Good job J. P. 

Other placings were: 

Rich Weaver — 3rd 

Rich Widman - 7th 

Tom Reynolds — 9th 

Carl Pellington - 10th 

Jim Trainer — 12th 

Al Reinhart - 15th 

this shows what kind of depth our Cross Country 
team has this year. As "Doc" Berthold put it, "We 
are still developing our sea legs." 

The Men's Cross Country team record is now ex- 
tended to 3 and 1 with the final scores of this meet:

Aggies Lose Home Game 4-1 

The Lady Aggies were bowled over last Friday 
when Muhlenberg scored two goals in the first three 
minutes. Del Val was only able to retaliate with one 
goal before the Lady Mules scored a third point in 
the closing minutes of the first half. 

The second half proved equal to the Lady Aggies 
as their defense toughened up. Unfortunately the 
Lady Mules grabbed one more goal to take the 
game 4-1. 

Coach Velnor attributes the loss to a slow start 
and the inability to put a finish on the ball. She 
said the girls were able to bring the ball down but 
couldn't put it in. 

Starting on Thursday, October 15th, the men's 
basketball team will hold tryouts. Everyone is en- 
couraged to come out for the J.V. and Varsity. 
Because you need a physical before tryouts, stop in 
and talk to Coach Lombard! as soon as possible. 

There are also vacancies for statisticians and 
managers. Anyone interested in becoming a part of 
the basketball program see Mr. Lombardi in the 
Rudley-Neumann Gym. 

New Academic Credit Rules ...

• They want to maintain high academic standards, 
yet they are lowering the amount of education 
required to get a college degree. 

• This past year tuition again took a jump and now 
your increased tuition doesn't even buy what your 
old cheaper tuition did with a maximum of 19 
credits you could conceivably take 152 credits in 
four years, now the maximum is 144. Also the cost 
per extra credit has increased to $95.00 per credit. 
This multiplied by the lost credit for eight semesters 
really adds up. 

Dr. Blackmon even said that cost cutting was a 
factor in this decision. Not all students on campus 
favored this decision. Some RXN was: 
"For the amount of money we are paying we 
should get at least 19 credits, it shouldn't have been 
changed, you're paying more and getting less." 
"It is unfair to have the sophomores and freshman 
take less credits than we juniors and seniors and still 
get the same degree. It sorta devalues our degree." 
"You mean that they changed the requirements?" 
A freshman. 

"It's not right, seems like we're getting cheated 

Even though students don't favor it, it happened 
anyway. Maybe with the right student protest to the 
right people this decision can be reversed. Stand up 
and be heard, it's your education and those in 
charge want your tuition dollars. They'll have to 
listen and compromise at least.

Dr. Martin Announces: 


Three centuries of gardens featuring Colonial, 
Victorian, and European estate gardens will be 
the main focus of the 1982 PHILADELPHIA 
FLOWER SHOW to celebrate the Century IV city- 
wide birthday celebration. 

From March 7 to 14, visitors to "Penn's Greene 
Countrie Towne" at the Flower Show will enter a 
horticultural time capsule through a wall of water 
surrounded by orchids cascading from tropical 
trees. Passing a lagoon circling an island or orchids, 
visitors will move into a futuristic garden from the 
year 2000 featuring sculpture by James Lloyd. 

Besides Delaware Valley College's participation 
in the Tercentenary Garden Collaborative, the Or- 
namental Horticulture Department will also stage 
it's own exhibit. This student planned and executed 
exhibit has been a tradition for many years. Last 
year's award winning exhibit, Kindergardening, 
was well received by the public. We hope to make 
this entry even more popular. 

This year's Del Val exhibit is titled 'Bulbs For All 
Seasons'. The exhibit will demonstrate bulb plan- 
ting and forcing methods, bulb culture and care, as 
well as some of the many uses of bulbs, both in and 
around the home all year 'round. True bulbs, as 
well as other structures treated like blubs including 
corms, tubers, and rhizomes, will be featured in the 

Planning meetings are well under way for the 
1982 show, but more help is needed. Meeting 
dates, locations, and times are published and 
posted around campus. Everyone is invited to par- 
ticipate in the excitement and challenge of this 
year's show. With your help we can make this 
another winning year. 


**So you're a freshman" 
**l was a freshman, — Oncer 

by Bud Hulshizer 

This is what all freshmen hear from the beginning 
of their first semester to the end of the second se- 
mester. Most of these comments come from last 
year's freshman — this year's sophomores. Have 
they, the upperclassmen, forgotten what it's like to 
be a freshman? 

Let me refresh the upperclassmen's short memo- 
ry. Remember the first college lecture? Maybe the 
upperclassmen do; or maybe they don't if they 
didn't find the right lecture room. 

Uh - oh! Here comes the teacher. Oops! That 
should be professor, not teacher. You're in college 
now, so start talking as if you were. What's the pro- 
fessor doing? He is writing his name on the board. I 
thought that went out in high school? — Evidently 
not. I can't read his writing and I don't want to ask 
him how he spells it. I'll look on my fellow class- 
mate's paper. But she doesn't know how to spell it 

Syllabus? What's a syllabus? Oh! It gives you 
dates and when exams are to take place. 

Pen, pen, where's the pen? The professor is giv- 
ing out information and I don't have a pen, or a 
pencil for that matter. Eureka! I found the pen, and 
just in time too. He's passing out a lecture sheet. 
The professor is having us take notes already? Oh 
-boy. — Not so fast, not so fast! I haven't taken 
notes all summer. My handwriting looks terrible. 
Even if I could decipher my handwriting, I still 
wouldn't understand what the professor was 

Did anyone see that? I can't believe my pen flew 
out of my hand. I was writing so fast, that 1 lost con- 
trol over it. I hope the guy in front of me isn't angry; 
I didn't want the pen to hit him on the head. I feel 
like an idiot. Maybe if I ignore the pen lying on the 
floor, no one will know it was I who dropped it. 

Oh, no! I forgot about the lecture because I was 
sitting here thinking of the stupid pen situation. 

I didn't miss much. I'll get the rest after class. I 
wish the student behind me would stop thumping 
her fingers on the desk. It is only twenty minutes in- 
to the lecture? This means I have ninety-five 
minutes left! No, not now, not writer's cramp! Now I 
know why the gal behind me was thumping her 
fingers on the desk; she was trying to get the blood 
flowing back through them. Good. The professor is 
taking a breather. Come on hand, get back into top 
performance before he starts again. Good! The 
blood's coming back. 

What's a what? What is the professor lecturing 
about? A euca-who? A cell that has an organized 
nucleus. Well, I do have the definition, so I'll look it 
up later. 

Twenty minutes are left. Most of the other 
students are nodding off to sleep. The professor is 
now showing slides of his family vacation — no — it 
looks like a map of New York City's streets, no, it's 
a slide of the chromosomes in a cell nucleus. I want 
to get out of here! I can't take it. The classes are too 
long. The professor has stopped lecturing. The 
class is over. No, the lecture is over. Thank 
goodness the teacher, um — the instructor has 
finally finished. Is it professor, teacher, or instruc- 
tor? I think instructor covers it — maybe not. I'm 

I extend a hearty thank you to Dr. Thomas 
Cordrey and the work study students in Horticul- 
ture, especially Scott Robertello, John Herring, and 
Tacy Morgan. Your extra effort in the orchards this 
fall is sincerely appreciated.

THE PLACEMENT OFFICE has been moved to 
a new location on the second floor of Lasker Hall. 

Shown here are Mr. Fulcoly and Mrs. Hartzell, in 
the Placement Office Information Center. Students 
should take advantage of the services offered 
through the Placement Office concerning part-time 
and full-time jobs, recruiting, resume writing, com- 
pany contacts, graduate school information, and 
career counseling. SENIORS, in particular should 
visit the Placement Office during the fall semester. 

Dear Aggie, 

Dear Aggie, 

I have been dating a guy named John. I men- 
tioned to John that Linda, a good friend of mine, 
is well-put-together. Well, John called Linda and 
asked her for a date. Linda accepted and then she 
told Barb (also a friend of mine) that she went out 
with John, Barb told me, and now I'm quite angry. 

I think that when John called Linda she should 
have refused immediately, saying she and I were 
good friends. Furthermore, Linda shouldn't have 
told Barb or anyone about her date with John 
because it made me look like a fool. 

My friends say everything worked out for the best 
and I'm lucky to have found out that John was bad 
news. What's your opinion? 

Dear Amy, 

Your friends are right. By now you should have 
learned never to "mention" to a boyfriend that 
another girl is "well-put-together." He may not be 
able to resist the challenge to take her apart! 

Also, few girls pass up chances to go out on dates 
on this campus out of loyalty to a friend. 

Besides, Linda and Barb talk too much. 

SPORTS . . . 


by Art Barillo 

The stage was set for a game between two 
powerhouses of the MAC Northern Division. Both 
teams knew the title could be decided with this 
game, but as time ran out, it was Juniata who had 
come one step closer with a 10-0 victory. 

From the first play of the game, starting at their 
own 33 yard line, it looked as if the Green Machine 
would roll when Cosmo Losco took the handoff 
from Tom O'Neill and went 9 yards and on the next 
play O'Neill kept for the first down. Keeping the ball 
on the ground for 11 more plays, the Aggies' drive 
fizzled at the Juniata 11 and a field goal attempt by 
Bob Hudoka was no good. 

Juniata, starting on their own 20, marched to the 
Aggie 45 and were forced to punt. Taking the ball 
at our own 11 the offense failed to move and a bad 
punt gave the Indians the ball at the Aggie 27 and 
moved it down to the 16 which brought up a field- 
goal attempt which was no good. 

After exchanging hands of the ball, Jim Duncan 
intercepted a Juniata pass which gave the Aggies a 
1st down at our 23. On 3rd down Juniata recipro- 
cated by intercepting a Tom O'Neill pass intended 
for Mark Tankersley at the Aggie 33. After 2 penal- 
ties, Juniata had the ball at the Aggie 13. From 
there on 4 successive runs, two way starter Jeff 
Miles took It in for the final yard and touchdown to 
put Juniata ahead 7-0, which was the only score of 
the first half. 

The second half proved to be just as disastrous 
for the Aggies. After receiving the kickoff at our 
own 24, the offense failed to move the ball and was 
forced to punt. The tough Aggie defense forced the 
Indians to punt, giving us the ball at our own 12 
yard line but once again failed to move. Juniata 
then took the punt at their own 39 and advanced 
the ball to the Aggie 5-yard line, with a' 13-yard 
pass from quarterback Mike Nett to receiver Eric 
Biddle and a 39 yard run by Rick Eberle. With a 3rd 
and goal at the 5, linebacker Ron Verra stopped the 
ball carrier for a loss which brought in field goal 
kicker Jake Missigman who put Juniata ahead 
10-0. It looked grim for the Aggies as the third 
quarter ended with O'Neill being intercepted twice 
along with another missed Aggie field goal. 

Then it looked as if the offense came to life as Del 
Val started from their own 43 with Nick Russo run- 
ning for 13 yards and an interference call put the 
ball at the Juniata 17 but a 4th and 7 pass attempt 
was intercepted by Juniata who now seemed to 
have the game in command. 

"We had our chances" said Coach Wilson, "but 
didn't take advantage of them." Their defense took 
away the inside on Tankersley which effectively cut • 
off our passing game. Wilson also said, "Juniata 
controlled the line of scrimmage and just beat us 
out there, and that's very emphatic, also noting that 
the loss of Greg Setta was sorely missed on the 
offensive line." 

This week the Aggies travel to Williamsport to 
take on the Warriors of Lycoming in another key 
divisional game. 

Division IV Update 

by Craig Clipman 

This year's intramural football season, now going 
into its third week, is proving to be one of the most 
exciting seasons ever. Eight teams comprise the 
league and all of them are still in contention for the 
number one spot. 

The teams are: State Penn, Crusaders, E.M.O., 
Gusto, Ulman Brewers, Genny Light, Society, 
Night Riders. 

At this point. State Penn and Night Riders are 
the only 2 teams to remain undefeated, however, 
EM.O. and Genny Light are close behind, each 
with 2-1 records. Coach Wolfgang would also ap- 
preciate anyone with some background in football 
to devote a few hours a week and referee some of 
the games. Each game pays 3 dollars, so if anyone 
is interested, please contact Coach Wolfgang 
sometime during the week. The games start at 4:20 
and are played behind the Gym and on the baseball 
field. Everyone is invited to come out and see 
which team will kick, pass, and run their way to 
the prestigious title of "Delaware Valley College 
Intramural Football League Champions." Each 
game is sure to offer an abundance of fun and 
entertainment. * 


Wm. Tennent Grad's Consistency 
Adds Team Backbone 

by Lorri Gerus 

Coach Vellner believes her team has improved 
team play by 100% since the 4-1 loss to Muhlen- 
berg, the M.A.C. opener. Now they are short of a 
win that will take them out of the tie column. 

The backbone of the Aggie defense has been 
rookie Carol Serik, the midfielder from War- 
minster. She has consistent play that breaks up 
opponent transition time after time. She also has 
added to the offense with two shots on goal. 

Supporting Serik on defense has been sopho- 
more Linda Treece, of Abington, Pa. Treece, as 
the sweeper, has halted many offensive drives short 
of the circle, and has teamed up with the goalie, 
Janice McNeil, in preventing scores. 

Junior Diane Bradley leads the Aggie offense 
with three goals on the season. She placed the only 
goal which tied Moravian 1-1. Her other scores 
were in the Albright game, which also tied 1-1, and 
in the Muhlenberg loss. 

Other scorers this year are senior Donna Cassano 
and Kelly Kerner, who scored one goal each in the 
Wid^ner contest which ended 2-2. 

The last home game of the season will be on Oct. 
13 against Drew University. At present the Aggies 
are 1-1-1 in M.A.C. league and 1-1-3, overall. 


In the groove, running fast, agile and smooth, 
the men's cross country team defeated Textile 
and Albright on Tuesday the 29th, and defeated 
Swarthmore on Parent's Day, Saturday the 3rd of 

On Tuesday Textile showed up unexpectedly. 
When the team was told previous to the start of the 
race, everyone became inspired even more than 
they already were. At the conclusion of the race this 
is what the team's times reflected. Each individual 
did indeed have his best time ever. Final scores: 

Del Val 23 Textile 32 

Del Val 20 

1st Jim Parsons 

2nd Rich Wcidman 

3rd Tom Reynolds 

7th Carl Pcllington 

10th John Lucas 

Albright 41 

1st Jim Parsons 28; 15 

3rd Rich Weidman 29:52 

4th Tom Reynolds 29:53 

5th Carl Pellington 30:20 

7th John Lucas 31:10 

Saturday, as parents, students, and faculty look- 
ed on, Jim Parsons and Rich Weaver finished the 
race side by side in 1st and 2nd place respectively. 
The race was won by Jim Trainer as he out per- 
formed all of his previous performances taking 5th 
place. The main pack of the team battled tough to 
maintain their positions throughout the race. If Tom 
Reynolds or Carl Pellington had lost a position the 
win could have been on the other foot. Again, an 
outstanding effort was turned in by each member of 
the team to make this win possible. Final score: 

Del Val 28 Swarthmore 27 


Jim Parsons 



Rich Weaver 



Jim Trainer 



Carl Pellington 



Tom Reynolds 



Rich Weidman 


The next meet is away at Scranton where we 
will face Scranton, Lebanon Valley, and possibly 
Bloomsberg College.

Lose to Albright and Moravian 

by Lorri Gerus 

The Lady Aggies obviously haven't been able to 
get it together after illnesses and accidents. The 
game against Albright on Sept. 29 started well, with 
Sandy Yerkes playing a hot game and Missy Young 
making fantastic blocks and spikes. Gail Garthwaite 
finished the game, 15-12. 

But from here the team went down hill. The se- 
cond game was a long volley, losing 6-15. By the 
third and fourth games the Spikers had lost what- 
ever they had come in with. The third game ended 
5-3. Although the Spikers rallied in the fourth, 
with Missy creating a spiking war with an opposing 
player, the game finished 8-15. 

The match against Moravian on Oct. 1 brought 
another disappointment as the Spikers lost 3 quick 
games to 0, the scores being 4-15, 10-15, and 
8-15. The Aggies next home game is tonight, Oct. 
9 at 7 P.M.

It would seem that throughout history, nothing 
has been as constant as change. Change takes 
place spontaneously, but it also may occur when 
there is a large effort for reform. It is felt that this 
change, or reform as it were, is needed with re- 
spect to the current state of planning of academic 
and extra-curricular activities at Delaware Valley 
College. Too much emphasis is placed on popular 
programs rather than programs of classical, or 
cultural background, which are more conducive to 

Institutions of higher education transmit intel- 
lectual content of human activity to those members 
of society who do not possess it. In order for a cer- 
tain society to enhance its intellectual capacity, 
the institutions must encourage and uphold these 

The values of a society can be seen in its history. 
History is a cycle which has occurred over and over 
again. For any given society to progress, it is of ut- 
most importance to know what has happened in 
the past. 

The time-honored tradition of the classics is an 
answer to this problem. The classics in art, litera- 
ture, etc., have existed throughout the ages only 
because they are of excellent quality and that they 
contain established values. Therefore the classics 
should be very important to institutions of higher 

The administration, faculty, and students at Del- 
aware Valley College should place their, academic 
and extra-curricular interests in activities which pro- 
vide a truly classical culture; this would provide a 
healthier, more rational environment for education . 
This would be a change for the better in the current 
state of planning of curricula of organizational 


Dear Editors: 

So what's wrong with a practical joke that is well 
planned and executed? Nothing, as long as nothing 
is destroyed. This is basically what happened on 
the early morning of September 30 at 2:00 a.m., 
through Barness first. Wolfsohn freshman acting in 
their image of the boys fronv Wolfsohn went on a 
tear and woke us up out of a sound sleep. But we 
don't mind, we love waking up that early. The in- 
furiating (that's, the word) part of this experience 
was the unreasonable reaction of those in power, 
such as Mrs. Keunecke — head of housekeeping, 
and Mrs. Navarre from the residence life office. 
Why, we didn't even get this much attention after 
the fire last year. 

But there they were after the prank asking unrea- 
sonable questions and making unrealistic demands 
and expectations. They assumed things about life in 
a dorm which were totally asinine. They expected 
the girls in their night gowns to jump out of bed, (at 
2:00 A.M. remember) take off in hot pursuit of 
these invaders and catch them even though the 
guys were running at full speed and we were barely 
conscious of what was going on. 

Then Mrs. Keunecke thought we were responsi- 
ble for it and she couldn't believe that boys could do 
so much in so little time. Oh what a sheltered life 
she leads — she should try dorm life for a weekend 
or two and see some of the things that are really 
possible. But anyway, she demanded several 
times and not politely either that the girls on the 
floor cleanup the mess which they had no part in 
creating. Who in their right mind wants to cleanup a 
disaster like that and who is getting paid for it is 
what it boils down to. But guess who got stuck with 
the job? • 

Even Mrs. Work managed to pop in to survey the 
atrocities. Mrs. Navarre certainly got on the scene 

quick, I didn't even know she got to work before 
9:00. But with something as vital as this to the well- 
being of her residents in dorms, I guess she makes 
exceptions. So she surveyed the damage and also 
flew off the handle. Why didn't the girls get the 
names of the guys as they ran out the back door? 
Why wasn't security called? (What good would it 
have done they probably couldn't find the place 
anyway.) After all this, neither Mrs. Navarre or Mrs. 
Keunecke got to the heart of the problem: that 
somehow the guys had managed to get into the 
dorm even though the doors were locked. Ironical- 
ly, they said they were going to hit Elson, but 
couldn't get in, since the doors were locked. 

The locks on Barness and Cooke and any dorm 
really are practically useless, decorative maybe, but 
functional, never. This consequently makes us feel 
so safe and secure to think that at night when we 
arc sound asleep in bed, any looney, on campus or 
off, could come in and really do damage, firie 
bombs, murder, serious things! Not just a practical 
joke. Yet the Resident Life Office was more con- 
cerned with catching the culprits than fixing and 
getting real locks on the doors. It is now, supposed- 
ly, top priority, but even if it is, we won't get new 
doors and locks until after Halloween and Mischief 
Night, but should something really important come 
up like extradition of cats or buying new footballs — 
give them 5 minutes to get it done. Priorities 
definitely seem screwy somewhere. 

Meet Karen Kemer. . . 

Karen Kemer is a senior Food Industry major, an 
R.A. in Elson Hall, and chairwoman of social house 
— and well known for her activities there which 
takes up most of her time. 

As chairwoman she coordinates the activities 
which various committees — movie, dance, cof- 
feehouse — choose to run. She describes it as an 
intense job which she enjoys. Although taking more 
of her time than first anticipated, it ranks at the top 
of her priority list. Her biggest complaint is the 
apathy she finds among the students. It is depress- 
ing, even embarrassing in some cases, for her to • 
have a performer come out and only have a few 
people show up. Although DVC does have a slight- 
ly higher percentage participation ratio to total 
school population than many other colleges, it is a 
small school and more people should be involved. 

Social house is only one part o( Karen's life. She 
is also one of the R.A. 's in Elson Hall. Although the 
smallest room she's had in four years — she isn't in 
it enough to worry about it. 

Karen's major is Food Industry. After graduation 
she doesn't know what she'll do. Ideally she feels 
she should get a job in Food Industry and apply her 
education but this isn't her first choice. She would 
rather get a job in social work or some facet of it — 
and with social house — she is accumulating good 
experience in working with people. 


The DVC Volleyball Team 

At our last home volleyball game on Friday night, 
we were overwhelmed by the reaction of the crowd. 
Our fans were tremendous! Their enthusiasm and 
spirit was so contagious that it rallied us to a victory 
in the third game and a close loss in the fourth 

It would be impossible to thank everyone per- 
sonally involved but we would like to mention a few 
individuals. Thanks Mark for keeping the net up. 
Thanks Mr. Davis (the trainer) for putting us all 
back together. Thanks Barb and Holly. Thanks 
coach for the ice cream party and thanks to one of 
the best home crowds ever.

Great Entertainment 
Discovers D.V.C. 

by Warren Lewis 

Hey baby. Sit on me baby. 

Bring your roommate to sit on me baby. 

Right on. Right on. Right on. 

1,400 people, a near full house, laughed every 
minute of the Steve Landesburg comedy hour. 
Lictenberg, Arthur Dietrich, from the television 
comedy show Barney Miller, gave an outstanding 
performance as this was probably one of the best 
events at Del Val in years. 

Many people who came to Del Val were not from 
Pennsylvania. Some were from Finland, England, 
Japan, Mars, and the Moon. Lindenberg did his 
research on DVC as some jokes were made about 
farmers, Jewish founders, country singers, and the 
like. Steve touched base on Fernando Valenzuela, 
Rural Jews, Southern Jews, the 1st Jewish Duck 
Hunter, various immitations, singing groups, the 
Royal wedding, immitating a Japanese comedian, 
car companies, commercials on television, Bulgari- 
an football players, the Olympics, sex, and finally 
about his television show Barney Miller. For a 
good portion of the show he opened himself up to 
the audience for questions. One question — How 
do you feel about the Middle East? Landingberg 
responded "I'd rather be in Doylestown." 

After the show, I caught Steve before he left. 1 
told him I was from the college newspaper — he 
responded by saying, "Yes, 1 subscribe to it". 
Steve Lendingberg is certainly a comedian and a 
gentlemen everyone should see. 

Carl, is that you?

International Column 


by Warren Lewis 

In Peru, archeologists are restoring ancient means of irrigation once used by the Incas of Cuzco, Machu 
Picchu, and Patallacta. The waterways were destroyed when the Spanish came and soldiers and farmers 
fought or moved away. Since then the land has turned to desert; an agricultural dust bowl. Now with a 
modest investment, archeologists feel it is economically feasible to try these ancient irrigation methods to 
try to give the poor people of this country a chance to live once again. The work Is i>aying off right as fields 
are returning to use after being cleared, with irrigation channels carrying a trickle of water to these fields. 
One archeologist who has studied the Inca civilization feels that the Peruvian government has a lot to learn 
from a civilization that lived so well that its people never knew famine.

When 1 was given this article to write on mid- 
terms, I had no idea how to make the idea of mid- 
terms humorous. But 1 solved that problem and 
decided to write it on the possible effects of a failing 
mid-term report. 

For one thing, mid-terms are not funny. I have 
this mental picture of irate parents swarming to 
DVC in car loads. Once having arrived, the parents 
stand over their son or daughter with a whip and 
forcing their son or daughter to study. 

Most parents do not remember how high school 
was when they attended it. They expect their son or 
daughter to get A's or at least a humble C. Most 
parents don't want their offspring to be average. 
They want them to be super brains. Can you im- 
agine walking into your room and finding a pulsing 
brain sitting at a desk? — which is your roommate. 

Your parents might insist on attending the review 
sessions in your courses. Some students will go and 
attend the classes. You arrive, settle, and prepare 
with your notes. The professor starts the review. He 
mentions some topics you don't remember. You 
become confused and upset. When the time comes 
for you to take the exam, you are so confused you 
don't know which way is up. You find out the 
review sessions helped. Yes, they helped, only to 
confuse you further. 

After the mid-term mania is over, most of us will 
burn the midnight oil in preparation of exams. 
Think of the fire hazards! Anyone want a toasted 
marshmallow? Want a hot dog? Call the nurse, I 
have a second degree burn. Book burnings can be

The first rule of writing is to stick to a subject with 
which you are familiar. 1 must confess from the 
beginning that I know little, if anything, about 
veterinary school admissions. The only comfort 
here is that I am not alone. No one seems to know; 
no one, that is, except the admissions committee 
members themselves; and I wonder how much 
disagreement there is even among them when 
applicant appraisals must be made. 

However, 1 have sifted through the confusing 
and often conflicting advice to make a list of impor- 
tant factors. Let's start with the easiest: 

1. Be sincere and realistic in your interest. 
Veterians wince at the often heard response, 
"I want to be a vet because I love animals." 

2. Have a 4.0 grade average. This one is a little 
more difficult, but there is no discussion here 
— this is a black and white issue. A 3.9 might 
slip by, if the only B was in gym. 

3. Make certain your father is a veterinarian. 
This one is really tough, since we do not 
choose our parents. 

4. Volunteer to tag around with a local "vet" for 
all of your summers. Actually, you should 
have been doing this since you were 9 years 
old. Obviously, this is turning into a rich per- 
son's game, beca,use there is littl? of collecting 
abundant summer wages in this position. 

5. Answer all the questions on the admissions 
test correctly. It's multiple-choice, after all, 
and one in five answers must be right. This 
must be easier that learning all that 
physiology, pathology, and other academia. 

The list could get longer and more ridiculous, but 
I think the point is made. If you still qualify, con- 
gratulations; but for the other 99V2% of us the 
question still remains: How do you really get into 
veterinary school? Until 1 know for sure, I'll discard 
my list before I get too discouraged. Now it is a toss 
up between trying bribery or going back to carrying 
a rabbits foot.

Pliiladelpliia Zoo Director Spealcs 

by Hoyt Emmons 

The Lab Animal Club sponsored Dr. Wilber 
Amand, veterinarian and Director of the Philadel- 
phia Zoo on October 1st. Speaking before an in- 
terested and inquisitive audience, he discussed the 
key role a zoo plays in the conservation of today's 
wild animals. Close contact with a wide variety of 
species yields much information and such learned 
material is applied to the wild animals in their native 
lands. The studies and research with zoo species 
often leads to better methods of conservation and 
the management of endangered species. 

Dr. Amand spoke about some of the interesting 
positions and predicaments a veterinarian is con- 
fronted with when caring for zoo animals. As you 
can imagine, some of his stories were quite funny 
and/or frightening, depending on what side of the 
cage you were on. 

Wrapping up his talk, he discussed zoo opera- 
tions and career opportunities with zoos and wild

Tankersley Sets New Record 

by Art Barillo 

Led by senior wide receiver Mark Tankersley's 5 receptions for 192 yards and 1 T.D., the Aggies 
defeated the Warriors of Lycoming in a key divisional contest. Tankersley broke his own record of receiv- 
ing yardage which he set two weeks ago with a 41 -yard reception in the 3rd quarter. What proved to be his 
biggest reception of the day was a 60-yard T.D. in the 1st quarter thrown by halfback Eric Reynolds. Along 
with freshman field goal kicker Bob -Hudoka's 2 field goals, the Aggies handed Lycoming their fourth 
defeat 12-3. 

Junior defensive back Rich Dougherty and the rest of the defensive unit bent but did not break by not 
allowing the Warriors to penetrate midfield in the 1st half coming up with the big play time after time. 

After a sack of Lycoming quarterback Pete Waldron by Ron Verra, the Warriors were forced to punt 
which gave the Aggies a 1st down from our own 30. Tom O'Neill then threw to Tankersley on 3rd down 
for 39 yards which set the ball at the Lycoming 42. An ensuing interference call moved the ball to the 25 
and another 1st down. Two runs and an incomplete pass was of little gain and brought in field goal kicker 
Bob Hudoka for a 43-yard attempt which was no good. After an exchange of the ball. Del Val took posses- 
sion at their own 20, O'Neill threw a screen pass to Eric Reynolds which moved the ball to the 38 and a first 
down. He threw again to Tankersley for a 52-yard gain to the Warrior 20. A pass to fullback'Nick Russo 
moved the ball to the 9 with a 1st and goal. Two runs and a pass failed to score which brought in Bob 
Hudoka for a 24-yard field goal attempt which was good and put the Aggies ahead 9-0 at the half. 

The Aggies looked to be on the move once again in the 3rd quarter with a 41 -yard pass to Tankersley, 
but an O'Neill fumble on a gimmick play gave the Warriors a 1st and 10 from their own 42. Quarterback 
Pete Waldron then hit wide receiver Mike Burd for a 30-yard gain to the Aggie 28. Two runs gave them 
the ball at the 14 and a 1st down. The Aggie defense held and Lance Spitter kicked a 30-yard field goal 
which narrowed the margin to 9-3. 

As the 3rd quarter ended the Aggies were forced to punt from their own end zone which would have 
possibly given the Warriors excellent field position. John McFadden then banged a 60-yard punt and gave 
Lycoming a 1st and ten at their own 41 but failed to move the ball. 

Del Val's final score was set up by an Aggie punt from the Lycoming 44. The ball hit a Warrior player at 
the 3 yard line where it gave us a 1st and goal, but on 3 successive running plays failed to score. Bob 
Hudoka kicked his second field goal of the day and put us ahead 12-3. 

Jim Duncan's interception at our 3 yard line of a Pete Waldron pass halted a late Lycoming drive and 
sealed the victory for the 3rd Aggie win against 2 losses. 

After the game. Coach Wilson stated that Lycoming is an outstanding football team, "but this week we 
were capable of making the big plays." Wilson also noted that Tankersley played exceptionally well and 
was glad to see Hudoka's 2 field goals. 

RAM Jams 

At the midway point of the season, sophomore quarterback Tom O'Neill has thrown for 618 yards on 
27 completions of 70 attempts with 7 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions. 

Wide receiver Mark Tankersley has caught 18 passes for 626 yards and 4 touchdowns, for a 35-yard 
average per catch. The leading ground gainer is Nick Russo with 40 carries for 200 yards. 

Tom O'Neill — offensive standout 

Cross Country 

The Cross Country team traveled to Scranton, 
Pa. this past week to battle Scranton and Blooms- 
burg Colleges. A difficult course and cool weather 
helped keep the fleet-footed harriers of Del Val 
from acquiring victory. 

Jim Parsons finished 2nd overall; Rich Weaver, 
3rd, Tom Reynolds, 7th; and Cari Pellington, 12th. 

The Cross Country's next meet will be Home- 
coming weekend. Come down to the James Work 
Memorial Stadium to help cheer us on.

Field Hockey 

Del Val Beats Drew, 3-1 

The Aggies played an excellent game Tuesday, 
Oct. 13 against Drew. The offense, led by Diane 
Bradley, really hustled. Bradley scored one goal in 
the first half and one in the opening minutes of the 
second half, bringing her total to date to six. Donna 
Cassano also played well, scoring the third goal of 
the game. 

Del Val's defense was consistantly aggressive. 
Barb Meyers and Linda Treece were breaking up 
all offensive drives before Drew could get their 
bearing, x 

The Aggies tied Gwynedd Mercy on the 7th, the 
score, 1-1. Diane Bradley made that goal. 

The Lady Aggies next game is away against 
Scranton on Wednesday, October 21. 

Sports Editorial 

Bobby Unser: Cheater That Wins? 

On October 8 a USAC panel took a second ap- 
peal by Bobby Unser and his car owner Rodger 
Penske over the controversial Indianapolis 500 on 
May 25. Unser, who won the race was guilty of 
passing cars under a yellow flag while leaving the 
pits and when the race results were finalized he was 
penalized one lap making Mario Andretti the win- 
ner. The panel agreed with the one lap penalty 
after the race but then 136 days after the results 
were posted, went against the rule book and their 
previous decision, declaring Unser the winner and 
fining him $40,000. How can this panel agree that 
Unser was guilty and still revoked the mandatory 
one lap penalty and give him the win? Mario An- 
dretti called the decision "ludicrous" and that it was. 
The racing worid has not enjoyed great success in 
recent years and this event will surely do nothing to 
help this problem. With the rule book meaningless 
Mario may not have a good chance at winning a 
court battle but no matter how it is decided, unless 
Mario is the winner of the 198th Indy 500, this race 
will always be remembered as the time the cheater 
did not finish last, but won.

^^M ^^H^ score of 3-1 in both games, the 

^^V ^^^^H Phillies returned home. Larry

Game four went into the bottom of the tenth tied at 

five, but George Vukovich changed that. The left

over the right field wall to even the series at two. 

The deciding game matched the same pitchers as 

game one, Steve Carlton against Steve Rodgers. 

Rodgers drove in two runs in the third and third 

baseman Larry Parrish hit a double driving in Andre 

Dawson in the sixth as the Expos won their first 

National League East crown by a 3-2 score. 

Dodgers Come Back, Down Astros 

The Los Angeles Dodgers 
made baseball history en route 
to winning the National League 
West title. The Dodgers after 
losing the first two games to the 
Houston Astros (3-1 & 1-0 in 
10) kept their composure and 
became the first team ever to 
win a five game series after being down two games 
to none. The Dodgers with 6-1 and 2-1 wins in 
games three and four threw rookie sensation Fer- 
nando Valenzuela at the Astros in game five. Fer- 
nando, with the help of the Dodgers hot bats 
defeated the Astros, giving the Dodgers the crown 
the Astros wore last season. 

A's Make It Look Easy 

The Oakland Athletics 
treated last season's American 
League Champions, the Kan- 
sas City Royals, quite rudely as 
the A's went into Kansas City 
and defeated the Royals 4-0 
and 2-1 in games one and two. 
The Royals, the only sub-five 
hundred team in the playoffs, 
then traveled to Oakland for a short stay as the A's 
swept the best of five series with a 4-1 victory. 

Brewers Give Yankees A Scare 

The New York Yankees 
opened the American League 
East playoffs in Milwaukee with 
5-3 and 3-0 wins over the 
Brewers but going to Yankee 
Stadium did not bother the 
Brewers in games three and 
four. Ted Simmons and Paul 
_ Molitor both hit home runs in 

game three as the Brew Crew downed the Yanks 
5-3. The Yankees, hoping to wrap up the series in 
game four, fell short as the Brewers tied the series 
with a 2-1 victory, in game five, Milwaukee took a 
2-0 lead on a Gorman Thomas home run and an 
RBI single by Cecil Cooper but the Yankees with 
homers by Reggie Jackson, Oscar Gamble, and 
Rick Cerone were to much for the Brewers as the 
Yankees repeated as American League East 

St. Louis, Cincinnati Are Winners 

The St. Louis Cardinals and the Cincinnati Reds 
should be congratulated because under a normal 
seasonal and playoff format they would have won 
their divisions and would now be playing for the 
National League crown. The Reds also possessed

Pure Prairie League 

The Cherry on a Homecoming Sunday 

by Jeff Montagnoli 

How do you top off an exhausting week of mid- 
term exams combined with preparations for home- 
coming, and how do you revive the victims of this 
hectic week? Well, Student Government found a 
way: cool them off in a downpour and then fire 
them up with a fantastic Sunday night. Pure Prairie 
League concert. This is not to imply that S.G.A. 
has any control over the weather, but the success of 
the concert was totally in their hands. 

When the doors of the James Work Gym open- 
ed this past Sunday, the crowd literally "poured" 
in. At 8:00 the warm up band, Dakota, took to the 
stage in electric rock style. The five-piece group of 
three guitars, a set of drums, and a keyboard, 
played songs depicting the life and feelings of a 
band on the road. They warmed the crowd with 
such songs as Hot Nights, and Working Hot. 
Others added to the story like Danger Zone, Fast 
Lane Livin', and Crazy Love. 

The mood was set as Pure Prairie League took 
over. Two Lane Highway was their opening tune. 
They had a great Country-Rock sound and played 
some really mellow slow songs like Drifting Too 
Far From the Shore, and Take Me to Heaven. 
Their most recent popular hit was Still Right 
Here in My Heart. Let Me Love You Tonight 
was also a recognized favorite, but the all time 
favorite which brought the house to their feet was 
Amy. Of course, a little American bluegrass was a 
hit at D.V.C. when the band and audience combin- 
ed to sing I'll be Damned. The five member band 
played I'm Almost Ready, which must have been 
true because they left the stage right after. But what 
do you get when you flick your Bic at a concert? An 
encore, of course. It was a real rock-n-roller. Truly 

D.V.C. certainly can mark this concert down in 
their list of concert successes, at least in terms of 
totally satisfying the crowd. S.G.A. and their 
helpers, deserve a lot of credit for all the time and 
energy they put into the making of a super concert, 
with just a little help from Dakota and P.P.L.

Homecoming Dance 

Stomping to Stop 

by Warren Lewis 

in the beginning there was a man — the builder 
of floats. In the middle there were students and 
athletes. In the end, man came to the James Work 
Gymnasium on Saturday night and discovered 
STOP. A good band can play a little of all the best 
artists such as Billy Joel, the boss — Bruce Spring- 
steen, Eric Clapton, and Etcetera. STOP drew a 
super crowd as everyone enjoyed the music and 
the atmosphere. The dance felt much more com- 
fortable in the J.W Gym because students did not 
feel they were dancing right on top of everyone 
else. Good job, Social House! 


by Joanne Lubanski 

This year Homecoming was rated one of the best 
Homecoming's ever presented, according to the 
students and many members of the faculty and why 
not? The floats, spirit cars, and dorms were the 
most imaginative D.V.C. has ever seen. 

The floats were both colorful and spirited. The 
winning floats were the Block and Bridle Club with 
Miss Piggy followed by the Small Animal Lab Club, 
the Dairy Society, and fourth was the Ornamental 
Horticulture Society. 

The spirit cars were also imaginative. The winner 
was the Floral Society; second was A. P.O. 

Finally, the dorm decorating contest was great 
with Elson Hall (Eric Elson II) winning first prize for 
their rendition of D.V.C. beating Fairleigh Dicken- 
son. (Whom incidently we beat fairly ridiculously, 
54-7.) The second place dorm was Barness, and 
third place was Berkowitz Hall. 

Special thanks to all the clubs and dorms for 
making it an outstanding Homecoming! Let's 
gather our ideas for next year. See you all next

and Bridle Club.

On Thursday, October 15, the college soil judg- 
ing team travelled to Penn State University to com- 
pete in the Regional Soil Judging Contest. Know- 
ing that they were up against stiff competition, the 
team of ten students rose eariy Friday morning to 
study the soils of the Penn State area. After a long 
day of studying, the team was ready to challenge 
the likes of Rutgers, Cornell, Maryland, Maine, 
Rhode Island, and the host team, Penn State. As 
Saturday morning came along, the Del Val team 
took to the cold and frosted fields to compete in the 
contest. The event consisted of interpreting four soil 
profiles to a minimum depth of 100 cm. Five hours 
later, the scorecards were all handed in and the 
team anxiously awaited to hear the final outcome. 

The results of the contest were announced later 
that evening at a banquet. The results of the contest 
were as follows: 

First — Penn State University 

Second — Cornell University 

Third — University of Maryland 

Fourth — Delaware Valley College 

Fifth — University of Maine 

Sixth . — University of Rhode Island 

Seventh — Rutgers University 

Although the Del Val team did not win the 
overall contest, they made a strong showing and 
only finished a few points behind the University of 
Maryland. The top three individuals for Del Val 
were Scott Harrison with 1041 points and 11th 
place overall; Scott Schukraft with 1009 points and 
14th place overall; and Dave Reeder with 1000.5 
points and 15th overall. Other members of the 
team were Mike McConville, Michelle Richardson, 
Tammy Michna, Karen Reed, Karen Silvius, and 
Tom Benusa. Coach Palkovics was pleased with 
the teams performance and is looking forward to an 
even better team next year. Good luck to a young 
and enthusiastic team that will be travelling to 
Rhode Island in '82. 

The soil judging team would like to thank Dr. 
Palkovics for all his time and effort that he put into 
preparing the team for this year's contest. Without 
his expertise in the field of 'Nittany soils and his 
dedication to the team this could not have been

Movie Review 

by Mark Phipps 

Mommie Dearest is the shocking biography of 
movie queen Joan Crawford. The movie is based 
upon the book by Christina Crawford, Joan's 
adopted daughter. The movie itself is very reveal- 
ing, yet lacks real depth. The story comes across 
more as a horror flick with a child abuse overtone 
than a developed portrayal of the main characters. 
The audience needs to become more involved with 
the story players and less with the story. The direc- 
tor has a need to cover the contents of the book, 
even if this means skimming some of the key 
events. Faye Duna\H'ay portrays Miss Crawford and 
the resemblance is ghostly, and as always she ex- 
pertly fulfills the role. In fact her acting tends to 
carry the entire story line from scene one. The mid- 
night rages, wire hanger attacks, and inhuman 
demands were definite highlights. But the film lack- 
ed the motive behind these events leaving the 
movie-goer frustrated and unfulfilled. The movie is 
presently playing at the Eric in Montgomeryville on 
Rt. 309 and Rt. 202. The movie is definitely not 
date material as far as an evening out, but O.K. for 
a night out with your friends.

Dear Aggie 

Dear Aggie, 

I met this upperclassman at dinner the other day 
and I thought he was kind of cute but a little on the 
"cocky" side. He has invited me to a party in his 
room, but I didn't have the nerve to go over. I only 
went out with 2 guys in high school. I'm very in- 
terested but unsure. What type of approach should 
I take in getting to really know him? 


Dear Hopeful, 

If it's the party idea you're not sure of why not 
just stop over some evening to say hello. If he's not 
busy ask him to go for a walk with you. A quiet con- 
versation certainly can do wonders to help start a 
friendly relationship. Good luck. 


Dear Aggie, 

I'm pretty much a quiet person. The girls on my 
floor tend to get rowdy alot. I've asked them to 
quiet down a couple of times, but they seem to 
overlook me because I'm in the minority. I don't 
think I should have to remind these giris that there 
are other people living on the floor. What can I do 
without sounding like a prude? 

A quiet person 

Dear Quiet, 

You're entitled to just as much quiet as noise. 
Why not speak to your RA about your feelings. She 
can always bring the subject up at the next floor 
meeting. Stand up and don't hesitate to voice your

International Column 


by Warren Lewis 

With the scheduled sale of American-made AWAC planes to Saudi Arabia, the deaths of Egypt's 
President Anwar Sadat and Israel's retired Minister of Defense Moshe Dyan; the Middle East becomes 
more unstable by the day. 

People around the world were stunned when they heard of the assassination attempt. Many watched 
television or listened to the radio to find out if he was dead or alive. Finally around 11:40 our time we 
heard that Sadat was indeed dead. He died of shrapnel wounds to the head and other areas of his 
body. He also took several bullets to the head-chest cavity — where one lung filled with blood as did. his 
lower extremeties. 

Sadat was in the process of changing the tide of history with Menachem Begin. The two countries 
were so close to working out a lasting peace settlement that could have slowed down the threat of war 
between the Arab Republics and the state of Israel. Now Israel stands alone, watching and waiting for 
events in Egypt to unfold. 

If you have any views on this subject, please send them in. 


This year's International Column is going to continue to be related to Del Val students in relation to 
Agriculture and Business abroad, and when possible local issues. I also will touch on Political news such 
as this past week's assassination of Egypt's President Anwar Sadat. Whenever there is an issue you 
would like to have covered or if you have an editorial, opinion, or controversy to what is being covered 
in any week's issue of the student newspaper, please feel free to drop it in the suggestion box in the din- 
ing hall, the P.O. Box (988 - Ram Pages) or my box (640) . If you would like me to contact you, I will do 
my best to see you.

New Explosive Fields in 

by Warren Lewis 

Everyday, more and more people are born on 
this planet, and food supplies in underdeveloped 
countries become more and more scarce. 

Today, the new and highly promising fields will 
be genetic engineering and tissue culture techni- 
ques. Future crops may be able to prpduce their 
own fertilizers, to exude toxins to drive off pests; 
grains that grow in salty soils, or others that can live 
for weeks without water. 

There will be a $50 billion to $100 billion annual 
market for agribusiness applications of genetic 
engineering by 1996. Commercial labs, more than 

50 so far, have sprung up across the country, 
creating a job demand nationwide. 

Most of the eariy achievements will involve a mix 
of more traditional plant husbandry and sophisticat- 
ed tissue culture techniques. The most promising so 
far are: 

1. The Potato Test — using radioactivity to 
locate and destroy infected seed potatoes. 

2. Sea Tomatoes — tomatoes that are able to 
grow in sea water. 

3. Dry Corn — can survive 3 weeks without 

4. Protein Rice — rice that contains 6-10% 
more protein. 

Many other research projects are underway right 
now promising new information and better crops 
for the future. The second green revolution has

Saturday the Aggies took to the field for a sec- 
tional contest against Kings. Although they have 
not had lady luck on their side this season, the Ag- 
gies, with the help of a Homecoming crowd, was 
able to down the Monarchs. 

Midfielder Tom Hughes got the Aggies' first goal 
on an assist from Scott Ruth. Ruth then put the 
Aggies up to stay with a goal on which he was as- 
sisted by center Gannar Avot. John Swuarez added 
an insurance goal as the Aggies went on to a 3-1 

Fourth year Head Coach Joe Soder credits Sat- 
urday's victory on the teams extremely hard play 
and their ability to keep the pressure on the Monar- 
chs. Coach Soder added, "We are starting to turn 
things around and are playing better soccer." 

Although the Aggies possess a 1-7-1 record, they 
still must play sectional opponents Upsala and 
Drew. With wins in these two contest, they could 
finish in second place in the sections. The Aggies 
will be at Lycoming tomorrow and then will face 
Upsala on Wednesday before returning for their 
final home contest against Drew next Saturday. Be 
sure to mark your calendar, the team needs your

The Lady Spikers have been hanging tough this 
season. The game of Oct. 9 against Penn State at 
Ogontz brought a disappointing loss (1-3), but 
freshman Sue Richart substituted, showing great 

The Aggies then pulled out of their slump to win 
against King's (3-2). In the first game, the Spikers 
showed their domination by winning 15-3. They 
went on to drop two exciting matches (13-15, 
13-5), but returned to win the last two games 
(15-4, 15-3). The trio of Patti Rissinger, Wanda 
Perugini, and Missy Young was unbeatable. 

Fairleigh Dickinson proved quite a challenge on 
Oct. 15. The match was very long, tiring, to the 
Spikers who were suffering from midterm fatigue. 
The scores were 16-14, 5-15, 7-15, 15-6, and 
9-15. Sue Richart substituted again and did a good 
job. Senior co-captian Gail Garthwaite's serves 
were great.

In front of a homecoming day crowd the Aggies Brur\waser '20 Award was preser)ted to Al 

humiliated the Jersey Blue Devils of Fairleigh Applegate or\ the homecoming day game. 
Dickinson University by a 54-7 score which could Photo by Ralph Wahl 

have possibly been even more disastrous. 

The Aggies set the tone for the game on the second play from scrimmage when linebacker Tim Boyes 
recovered an FDU fumble which gave the Aggies a first and ten from the Devils 14 where after two 
runs, quarterback Tom O'Neill, pitched to Eric Reynolds for the first Aggie touchdown of three in the 
first quarter. 

After an FDU punt the Aggies had a first and ten from there own 49 yard line. Following an in- 
complete pass, Eric Reynolds 21 -yard run and a 20-yard pass from O'Neill to Tankersley, the Aggies 
had a first and ten at the FDU eight. Fullback Nick Russo ran it down to the one where Tom Kirk plung- 
ed over for the touchdown and put us ahead 13-0. The third scoring strike came from the FDU 38-yard 
line on a pass from O'Neill to Tankersley. 

Midway through the second quarter Del Val had a first and ten at the FDU 22 via an interception by 
Jim Duncan. Cosmo Losco then ran the ball to the goal line but an offside penalty moved the ball back 
to the 5-yard line where on his second attempt, he ran it for our fourth touchdown. FDU's only score of 
the game came after an interception by Steve Purcell of a Tom O'Neill pass at the Devil 32. Marching to 
the Aggie 34, quarterback Bob McCabe hit receiver Rich Di Giuseppi for a touchdown. 

In the second half, the Aggies added four more touchdowns, the first one coming off a blocked FDU 
punt recovered by Kevin Hoke in the endzone. Nick Russo and Bill each added touchdown runs of one 
and ten yards respectively. The longest scoring play of the day came when substitute quarterback Steve 
Serniak hit freshman wide receiver Dan Glowatski on a 67-yard pass run. 

The first Sidney "Bruno" Brunwaser '20 Award which is presented to the outstanding player of the 
homecoming day game was given to defensive tackle Al Applegate. 

This Saturday the Aggies travel to meet the Colonels of Wilkes College at 1:30. 


The Silver Streak 

by Warren Lewis 

Homecoming afternoon, a perfect day for a race. 
Kutztown came to Del Val to take on a tough chal- 
lenge running against our harriers. The gun sound- 
ed. A good clean start by both teams. On the return 
trip, the first to burst onto the track was Jim Par- 
sons. Parsons breaking through the tajje, set a new 
cross country record breaking the old record set by 
a Haverford runner in 1979. Jim's time was 27:34, 
11 seconds better that the old record. Super job 
Jimmy! Speeding in third was Rich Weaver. Then a 
slew of Kutztown runners pulled in taking the main 
body of the positions. Rich Weidman crossed the 
finish line 10th, Jim Ti iner 11th, and Tom 
Reynolds, 12 position. The i lal score: Del Val 37, 
Kutztown 24. The final of the women's cross coun- 
try race was Del Val 42, Kutztown 18. Next week 
the guys will travel to Susquehanna and the girls 
will be in Allentown where they will be participating 
in the Women's Championship Collegiate meet 
sponsored by the Women's Athletic Association. 
This is the first time our women will be competing in 
this event. Good luck to both teams. The annual 
Turkey Trot is coming! Stay tuned for further 

Jim Parsons on his luay to breaking the cross 
country course record in front of the Homecoming 

It's Yankees — Dodgers Again 

For the eleventh time the New York Yankees 
and the Los Angeles (Brooklyn) Dodgers will be 
playing in the World Series. 

The Yankee's playoff experience along with 
great pitching efforts by Tommy John, Rudy May, 
and Bob Righetti left Billy Martin and his Oakland 
A's wondering what hit them. With the help of 
Craig Nettles hot bat the Yank's took game one and 
two by 3-1 and 13-3 scores. Nettles three RBI 
doubles in game three helped the Bronx Bombers 
to a sweep of the series (4-0) and give them the 
American League Title. 

The Dodgers will be coming in to the series after 
a tough five game series with the Montreal Expos. 

The series started in Los Angeles where the 
Dodgers took game one, 5-1. But the Expos 
bounced back to win games two and three by 
scores of 3-0 and 4-1 respectively. The Dodgers 
won game four 7- 1 to even the series and force a 
fifth and deciding game. The Expos took a 1-0 lead 
in the first inning when Tim Raines raced home on 
a fielders choice. Rick Monday did the rest. Mon- 
day tied the game with a run in the fifth and then irt 
the ninth he hit a 3-1 pitch from Steve Rodgers, 
who was in the game in relief of Ray Burris. 

The Yankees are seeking their tenth win over 
the Dodgers in series play and their 23rd World

Junior Jim Parsons made Delaware 
Valley College history last Saturday by 
winning the M.A.C. cross country title 
event. Parsons out ran some very 
tough competition in the 8000 meter 
(approx. 5 miles) race. 

Coach Berthold stressed that the 
victory was more than a personal ac- 
complishment for Jim. It is a victory 
for the entire cross country team, the 
college, and our graduates. 

The cross country team will travel to 
the N.C.A.A. Regional competition on 
Saturday which will qualify both men 
and women for the N.C.A.A. National 
Championship meet on Saturday, 
November 21. 

Landscape Maintenance at DVC: 


Maintaining the grounds here at Del Val is simply 
a cyclic process. During the growing season we 
have to maintain the lawn areas and keep the 
shrubs nicely pruned. In the pre-dormancy period 
(Fall) we have to keep the campus free of leaves 
and debris. In the winter months snow is cleared by 
our department and equipment is repaired and 
made ready for the spring. During the winter, plans 
are made for spring plantings and whatever else we 
hope to accomplish during the planting season. Un- 
fortunately for our department, our budget is 
limited, therefore, the amount of materials we can 
buy is also limited. A good chunk of our budget 
goes toward weed killers and fertilizers. We are in 
the process of buying a new tractor to replace the 
ailing tractor we now own. What good is a machine 
you cannot use? Sitting idle, it costs you time and 
money Our leaf vacuum has also spent some time 
in the shop which also makes us fall behind, We 
could most definitely use a larger machine to get 
the job done better and faster but that allowance is 
not in the budget at this time. We always do the 
best job possible with the equipment and materials 
we have. An additionaJ comment. Another thing 
that makes us fall behind is litter on the campus. 
Please cooperate by using the trash receptacles at 
all times. Remember the time we spend picking up 
your trash is your money. 

Class of 1985 

On Thursday. October 22. 1981 at 8: 15 p.m. in 
Mandell 114, the class officers and seven members 
of the class of '85 met. Dr. Berthold was selected as 
our class advisor, 

A class ballot will be placed in every students 
mailbox ipf the "85 class The ballot consists of 
voting for class dues and a survey. The class of '85 
also has a mailbox which is 489. If there are any 
suggestions or ideas for the class, they may go in 
the mailbox. 

The next meeting is scheduled for November 19. 
1981 in Ag Building 1 13 at 7:30 p.m. This meeting 
is open to all of the class members. We hope to see 
everyone there.

The Big Production 

(Part 1) 

by Warren Lewis 

Do you know the amount of effort that goes into 
putting on a concert here at Del Val? You may not 
be aware of all the people and the number of hours 
it takes to put together a major event from the initial 
letter or phone call to the completion and the clean 
up. This will be a mini-series to give you an idea of 
what goes on behind the scenes of an event such as 
Steve Landesberg or the Pure Prairie League con- 
cert. This week we will look at: The Middleman. 

In the field of entertainment you could have 
almost anyone come to Del Val, However, there 
are certain factors that cut the chances to have a 
majority of the choices. First, you want to invite so- 
meone who will be enjoyed by the majority of 
students. To help us decide who we can have here 
at the College a "Middleman" or Agent is hired to 
help us make the decisions. It always pays to have a 
good agent to work for you to get good turn out 
results. The Middleman's job is to find out: 

1. Who is available? 

2. The cost of the act? (a major decision) 

3. What we can do and cannot do before or 
during the concert? (deals with the rider 

4. The length of the show? 

5. When the group or performer will be in the 
area to get block booking or discount rate so we 
can save money, 

6. The cost that other colleges paid the group. 

7. A concert rating on the group if one is 
available. This rates all aspects of their show 
from opening to the final curtain. 

Finally the middleman will place a bid on the 
group if: he has researched them and found that 
they are a prospect for the college, and that the col- 
lege and the group will work in a symbolic relation- 
ship. (The group giving the college a good show 
and the college cooperating with their requirements 
to the best of our ability and within reason.) He will 
turn in or phone in the lowest possible amount they 
will accept. It normally takes 11-15 days to hear 
from them. The better run the act, the faster the 
response will be. Finally you hear, "Our bid was ac- 
cepted." Next week we will look at the Bands Rider

The Ram Pages welcomes the opinions of its 
readers and urges all members of the College to 
participate in this open exchange of ideas. For let- 
ters to appear in Friday's issue, all letters should be

Dear Editors: 

This letter is in response to an article, which ap- 
peared in the Oct. 30th edition of the Ram Pages. 
written by Tony Novak. "In Praise of Apple 

The orchards at DVC are properly maintained 
and sprayed throughout the season to prevent the 
infectation of worms and other injurious insects and 
diseases that could reduce the marketable quality of 
the fruit. It is for this reason that the school employs 
an Orchard Manager. 

The apples selected for cider preserving are 
"seconds." but not because of their worm content! 
They contain "external" blemishes which make 
them unmarketable to the average consumer. 
These apples are solid fruits without worms! 

1. being a witness to all of the cider pressed this 
year using DVC apples, wish to make it known 
publically that the Horticulture Club does not use 
any wormy apples in its cider-making process, nor 
does any of our cider have a greenish tint! If our 
sales of cider for Horticulture Club profits are at all 
affected by the article in the Ram Pages, we will 
hold it personally responsible. 

Russell Clark 

Hart. Club President 


Last week's Agriline was supposed to be obvious- 
/y ridiculous.— apparently' \;ou didn 't think so. 1 was 
well aware of the facts concerning cider making 
when I wrote the article, as I believe our readers 
were also. 

If cider sales drop, let us know. We'll give \;ou 
some additional advertising.

Class of '82 Members 

Many happenings have been taking place among 
our class. Once again this year our class is initiating 
a Sports Spectacular, including bowling this past 
Wednesday evening and a Racquetball night plan- 
ned for December 4th at the Highpoint Racquet 
Club. In addition, on November 21st, our class is 
co-sponsoring with the Class of '84 the 4th Annual 
Variety Show. Furthermore, the possibility of more 
joint-class-sponsored events is being looked into for 
the spring semester. 

Our major events such as graduation, the Senior 
Dinner Dance, and the Bahama trip are also on the 
minds of us all. As for the Bahama trip, over one 
hundred persons have signed up and the trip is still 
open to anyone interested; see Ann Buickus — 
Elson 24. The Senior Dinner Dance is planned for 
Friday, April 2, 1982. This year the event is taking 
place at Bentley's on Rt. 202, just south of the 
Montgomeryville Mall. Plans for graduation are 
underway with guest speakers and the class gift still 

I personally urge any seniors that have ideas or 
suggestions for these events to attend the Senior 
Class meetings, held every Tuesday evening at 
8:00 p.m. in Ag. 1 13. Or make your ideas known 
to any class officer, i.e. Mark Phipps — Work 119, 
Frank Losagio — Goldman 201, Barb Meyer — 
Barness 206, Ann Buickus — Elson 24, Mark 
Tymes - Work 201, Michael Koyak - Work 235, 
or Mike Gcrber — Goldman 222. Remember this is 
our senior year; if we can work together we can 
make this a most successful, enjoyable, and 
memorable year. 

Thank you, 
Mark Phipps 

Dear Aggie 

Cars, Cars 


Cars, cars, everywhere and not a place to park. 
Commuters do you find yourself getting up earlier 
every morning just to get a parking space? Resi- 
dents do you find yourself not wanting to use your 
car because you don't want to lose your parking 

Yes. there is a definite crunch on parking space 
on campus, and last year the parking lot behind 
Barness and Cooke was eliminated. Now people 
park there anyway, putting new ruts in the mUd 
and getting tickets. People in Cooke and Barness 
have no place to park when loading or unloading 
except on the driveway where they are a hazard. 

The lot was removed to try to prevent moving li- 
quors into the dorms. The only thing that could 
stop liquor from going into the dorms would be to 
remove the dorms not the lot. 

So why not have a lot behind the dorms. Tem- 
porary 1 hour parking? The student center will go 
up on the back field and parking will be put in for 
that, so why not get a head start on the lot. After 
all, we need the space. 

Looking for an empty parking space 

Dear Editors: 

Money! Who's got it, who doesn't, and who 
manages (or mismanages) it? This is a big. question 
in the minds of DVC college students. One subject 
which is a current issue is the student directories. 

Student directories are many student's guide to 
who's who and where are they on campus. The 
directory is always anticipated and welcomed by 
the students, and is one item which the high tuition 
we pay every year covers. This year one of the cost 
cutting measures is cutting the directories to 
everyone but the priviledged few, your R.A.'s. 

The R.A.'s, those lucky devils, will get a direc- 
tory. They then get to share the directory with the 
rest of their floor — if they want to. But everyone 
knows that the RA's are the only ones who would 
really need or want it. They probably even get to 
pay extra tuition for it. After all, the only thing peo- 
ple use the directories for is to get addresses and 
then to keep in touch with friends after graduation 
or even just over the summer. The administration 
doesn't remember how important this is. 

Once again, it is the same story, pay more get 
less. How long will we, the students, take this? 
Unless we do something, stand up and take a 
stand, have our parents voice their opinions, and 
show them we won't put up with being screwed 
anymore, they will continue to find new ways to rip 
us off. 

A lost student 

The\;'re not getting married folks! Karen Rogers and 
Craig Edgerton stopped by at the Block Memorial 
Chapel to admire the floral arrangements 
developed by the floral design class. 

Dear Aggie, 

I have this problem of forgetting where I lay my 
keys and my ID. It doesn't happen all the time, but 
it's a hassle calling security. The ladies in the lunch 
line aren't spectacular when they bug you about not 
having a card. Any suggestions? 


Dear Forgetful 

Why not try buying a bigger, more expressive 
key chain that will catch your eye wherever it is. 
When you take your ID. out of your pocket put it 
right into the pocket of something you wll be wear- 
ing the following day. This should eliminate your 
leaving it around to get misplaced.

International Column 


by Warren Lewis 

Do you remember that when the sale of the AWACS was first brought up by the government that 
public opinion was against the sale and so were OUR congressmen and senators? 

Today, the majority of the people in the United States are still against the sale of the "Pie in the Sky" 
but now our government representatives are for the sale and it appears that a deal will be made final, to 
be completed in 1985. 

Why so soon or sudden? What could happen when the Saudis fly those big birds near Israel's air 
space? Why so soon — because it is time for the politicians to cejole President Reagan to get more 
money for their states before all the funds get cut. Also, it is election time. Those who are up for re- 
election want to be in the news on the side of the president and be noticed back home. What could 

Let's go foreward in time: the sale and exchange has already taken place in 1985, the year is now 
1986, it is 4:00 a.m. One AW AC drifts off course into Israeli air space. At 4:10 a.m., 5 brand new FYX 
22's make communication with the AWAC and escort it out of Israel's air space. Israel's ground and sea 
forces are now on full alert, ready to blow up Saudi Arabia's oil fields. Finally the AWAC leaves Israel's 
air space, 3 seconds before the Israelis would have shot it down. 

If you don't like that one, here's another: same year, 1986. A Saudi Attack on Israel with both 
AWACS alerting Saudi ground forces where the Israeli forces are positioned. This time they are being 
escorted by 6 Russian MlG's, (the Soviets best fighter jet). The Israelis arrive on the scene with 6 U.S. 
made fighter jets. A fierce battle enfolds with 1 AWAC shot down, 5 MIG's and 4 U.S. made jet* being 
shot down also. All of a sudden 3 U.S. Air Force jets come out of the blue and destroy the last AWAC 
and MIG fighter. If you would like to write in your own battle, please feel free. 

At the Movies 

Time Bandits 

by Warren Lewis 

If there was ever a movie to see Time Bandits 
would be it. You will love the characters, the plot, 
the suspense, the special effects, and alot more. 

To wet your appetite; the movie starts out in a 
future time from now when almost everything can 
be automated. Two parents are caught up in their 
own world. The father with his television, and the 
mother and her automated appliances ignore their 
young son. Between his automated world and his 
artistic ability, he searches through history books to 
see how life was in the days of old. His imagination 
begins to run away with him. 

He travels through different periods in history 
with the time bandits. Your imagination will be let 
loose in this film while you enjoy this outstanding 
picture. This movie rates an 8.5 on a scale of 10. I 
have not seen a 10 yet so this one is definitely up 
there with Star Wars and all the other science fiction 

You can see Time Bandits at the Barn Cinema 
on 611 south. Enjoy the flick! 

Fonthill Florally 

by Jerry Robbins 

Last weekend, after much planning and working, 
the seniors enrolled in Dr. Martin's floral design 
course were ready to display their talented crea- 
tions at Fonthill, the historic home of Dr. Henry 
Chapman Mercer. These twenty five student decor- 
ated Dr. Mercer's dreamhouse in autumn splendor 
using flowers, plants, and floral designs and crafts. 

While touring Fonthill, guides informed the on- 
lookers as to the function and decorations of the 
room and a handout was supplied with explana- 
tions of why the floral displays were used as they 
were. Although the rooms were very uniquely de- 
signed and decorated without the floral accents, the 
addition of these items brightened the rooms and 
added an extra touch of richness. 

Saturday visitors to the museum also heard the 
sounds of the Madrigal Singers and the Recorder 

DVC's Autumn at Fonthill was an excellent dis- 
play of the talents of the college and the richness of 
the community. 

If you missed the display last weekend and want 
to see the museum, the Fonthill Museum is open 
Tues. —Sun., 10:00 a.m. — 3:30 p.m. for guided 
tours from March 1 - December 31. Call 348-9461

for last week's Punk Dance. 

This dance had many characteristics of the ideal

student involvement, and the full enthusiasm of all 
involved. D.J.'s you were all great.

The Music Review . . . 


by Frank McGaughman 

Many people became fans of Billy Joel several 
years ago with his seemingly overnight successful 
album, "The Stranger". Billy Joel, however, was 
not an overnight success. There were many years 
before "The Stranger" in which Billy tried to make a 
name for himself as a composer and singer. 

For those who don't know of the existence of 
Billy Joel before "The Stranger," you're in for a sur- 
prise when you hear his new album, "Songs in the 
Attic". This live album is actually a compilation of 
Joel's best works in earlier days when Billy and the 
band were on the road trying to get a name for 
themselves. Billy Joel's earlier music is not to be 
taken as poor or unimpressive — much the op- 
posite. Some of Joel's works on "Songs in the 
Attic" are masterpieces. 

One only has to listen to "Miami 2017" or "The 
Ballad of Billy the Kid" to get a taste of the hard- 
rocking power Joel can produce in concert. In 
"Captain Jack," for instance, Joel's vocals are top- 
notch. His baritone glides from octave to octave 
with ease, sometimes singing at different tempos to 
the music he plays. In "Miami 2017," Joel's superb 
lyrics tell of the apocolyptic events which destroy 
New York City in the 21st century. Listening to this 
track, one gets a taste of the great imagery which 
Joel's music possesses. 

Billy Joel's band is not merely there to back him 
up; the guitars of Russel Javors and David Brown 
are spectacular in "Miami 2017," "Billy the Kid," 
and "Captain Jack". Along with the staccato preci- 
sion of Liberty Devitos drums and the well-ccordi- 
nated bass of Doug Stegmeyer, these spectacularly 
lively numbers come to life. 

"Songs in the Attic," however, is not all hard- 
rocking. Tracks such as "Your my Home" and 'I've 
Loved These Days" show Billy's romantic side. Joel 
excells in the fine "Summer Highland Falls". There 
are fine lyrics and masterfully brisk, cascading runs 
on the piano. "I've Loved These Days" is a good 
sonnet which exemplifies a foggy beauty as Joel 
sings of living high and of the ultimate emptiness 
which goes with it. Some of Billy's best trills are in- 
corporated in this track. The piano chords are full 
and rich. Richie Cannata gives a fine clarinet solo as 
Joel's piano provides a well-textured background. 
One cannot help liking this song. 

An aspect of "Songs in the Attic" that might be of 
interest to serious fans is that the album contains 
two very rare tracks from Joel's first album, "Cold 
Spring Harbor." written when Billy was in his early 
twenties. These songs are very impressive ex- 
amples of the blossoming talents of the young Billy 
Joel. "I've Loved These Days" closes out "Songs in 
the Attic" on a beautiful note. All I can add is that I 
hope Billy Joel still loves his days and that he con- 
tinues to write music as fine as "Songs in the Attic," 
in the years to come.

In what proved to be a very intense, hard hitting, 
and aggressive game, the Aggies pulled out a hard 
fought 8-6 victory over the Mansfield State Moun- 
taineers. The game was literally won at the line of 
scrimmage both offensively and defensively. With a 
scoreless standoff in the first half, the Aggie offen- 
sive line ignited in the second half clearing holes for 
running backs Cosmo Losco. Eric Reynolds, and 
Nick Russo. Excellent second effort running by 
Losco time and again gave Del Val its lone score on 
a 5 yard scamper around left end after running into 
the middle of the line and looked to be tackled but 
reversed his field and ran it in. 

The offensive line of Jim Bertoula. Ernie Meilly. Joe Rada, Brad Hall. Bill Givas. Tom Anton, and 
tight end Mike Petty, played the best game of the season, stated Coach Wilson That they did in putting 
three sustained drives in the second half and also giving quarterback Tom O'Neill time to throw to 
receivers Tankersley, Glowatski. and Russo. With Tankersley being double and triple teamed at times. 
O'Neill threw to freshman receiver Dan Glowatski who grabbed three passes for 54 yards. 

The defense as u>;ual was superb. The Mountaineers ran out of a wing T formation with the fullback 
Troy Fisher carrying most of the running load but he went out with an injury in the first quarter. After 
the game Wilson said. "The defense was geared make the linebackers free to stop their fullback". It 
seemed to work because the Mountaineers picked up only 104 yards, thus forcing quarterback Dan 
Jones to go to the air 26 times with two of those being intercepted by Rod Bates who also blocked a 
39-yard field goal attempt in the beginning of the second quarter. 

One of the key plays of the game came after the Aggie touchdown, when center John Casella and 
kicker Bob Hudoka lined up on the ball The offense was set 10-yards to the right of the center. Nick 
Russo behind the offensive wall took the lateral pitch from the center for the two-point conversion and 
an 8-0 lead. 

Mansfield's lone score came after a bad Aggie punt where Mansfield had first and ten at their own 44 
where two passes from quarterback Jones to wide receiver Dan Gammercone put the ball at the Aggie 
seven where the defense held for three plays but on fourth and goal from the two Doug Woodruff ran it 
in to narrow the gap to 8-6. They went for the two-point conversion but the pass was intercepted by Jim 

Mansfield had a chance to pull it out with a minute left driving from their own 38 to the Aggie 26 and 
with three seconds left attempted a 42-yard field goal but once again the Aggie defense rose to the oc- 
casion and J.D. Niehls blocked the field goal for a victory that went down to the wire. 



by Art Barillo 

In a game of fumbles, penalties, and inconsistent offensive play, the Aggies pulled out a 14- 10. down 
to the wire victory for the second straight week. A. fired up Moravian team, which for some reason 
always has the Aggies" number, gave them all they could handle for 57 minutes. "We had our breaks in 
the first half but didn't take advantage of it" said Coach Wilson after the game, referring to a lost fumble 
in the first quarter and a 31 -yard field goal attempt which was no good. 

Moravian drew first blood in the second quarter on a two-yard run by Joe Carter after a 43-yard run 
by fullback Tom Ulciny to give them a 7-0 lead. 

The third quarter again belonged to Moravian as they scored on a 39-yard field goal for a 10-Olead. 

It looked as though the last quarter would be the same for the most part but the Aggies came to life. 
Mark Bream blocked a Moravian punt on their own 39-yard line. Runs by Tom O'Neill and Eric 
Reynolds gave the Aggies a first and ten at the 28. Following a Moravian punt the Aggies started a drive 
from their 38-yard line. The Aggies trailing 10-0 went on fourth and twelve from the Greyhound 32, 
when O'Neill found freshman wide receiver Dan Glowatski for a 26-yard gain and a first and goal at the 
six. O'Neill then hit Reynolds coming out of the backfield for the touchdown with 2:48 left to narrow the 
gap to 10-7. 

After the following kickoff the Aggie defense forced a Moravian fumble which gave them a first and 
10 at the Greyhound 20. With two minutes left O'Neill went to work, and on third and twelve once 
again, he fired to Glowatski for a 13-yard gain to the seven. After two runs for two yards O'Neill ran it in 
himself for the final five and the game winning touchdown. 

After last week's great offensive line play against Division II Mansfield State "the Ime got handled to- 
day" said Coach Wilson. Anyway it was the Aggies seventh win against two losses and tomorrow they 
will travel to Susquehanna for their final game of the season in which they need a win to at least share 
the championship with Juniata. 

Night Riders 
are Division IV Champs 

by Craig Clipman 

On Monday, October 26. the Intramural Football 
Championship was decided. At 4:20 in the after- 
noon, with a wet but devoted crowd on hand, State 
Penn kicked off to the Night Riders, and the battle 
began. The first half was slow and many mistakes 
were made by both teams. Much of this, however, 
was attributed to bad weather conditions. Rain and 
a muddy playing surface caused many of the play- 
ers to lose their footing. The only score of the game 
came in the second half when a 20-yard pass to the 
Night Riders wide receiver, "Taz", was complete for 
a touchdown. The score then went to 8-0 when the 
center, Bill Mallen, caught a short pass in the end 
zone for the extra point. State Penn desperately 
tried to even the score before time ran out, but fail- 
ed, and the Night Riders became Delaware Valley 
College's Intramural Football Champions! All the 
football teams in the league should be congratu- 
lated for making this season the most exciting yet, 
but a special thanks should go to both State Penn 
and the Night Riders for a job well done. 


Lady Aggies Season Ends, 5-2-5 

Diane Bradley, MVP 

by Lorri Gerus 

After several delays, the Aggies finished their 
season on Wednesday, Nov. 4, with their final 
game being against Fairleigh Dickenson University. 

The Aggies had wiped out Penn State Ogontz 
with a win of 5-2, but they still had to play the tough 
team of F.D.U. In the first half the Aggies were up 
against a tough defense, but Kelly Kerner scored a 
goal, her fifth of the season, before the end of the 

The second half showed the Aggies dominating 
the offense, although they were unable to score un- 
til the end. With twelve minutes left to the game, 
Diane Bradley scored an insurance goal, making 
the final score 2-0. 

Junior Diane Bradley received the Most Valuable 
Player honors from her teammates for the 1981 
season. Besides leading the team in scoring (15 
goals and 2 assists), Bradley added spark and drive 
to the team with her consistency and speed. 

The team finished in second place in their Middle 
Atlantic Conference Division with a record of

The Aggies of Delaware Valley College won their 
second consecutive Northern Division title by de- 
feating Susquehanna last Saturday 9-3. On their 
way to the championship, the Aggies posted an 
overall record of 8-2. the most wins in the school's 
long football history. Although the Aggies tied 
Juniata with a 6-1 league record for the Co- 
Championship, this championship marks Delaware 
Valley as a power among Middle Atlantic Confer- 
ence football teams. Last year the Aggies posted a 
7-0 MAC record and finished 7-3 overall to win the 
first MAC title in any sport at the school. Sixth year 
head coach Al Wilson, who took over the program 
in 1976 after an 0-8-0 season, feels that this cham- 
pionship is special and reflects the true character of 
this team.

The Big Production 

(Part 2) 
The Rider 

by Warren Lewis 

Do you know what a rider is? It is an attached 
document to a legal bill to secure a distinct object, 
in the case of a bands contract the rider includes 
extras such as: who will open the concert, power 
requirements, sound and light requirements, dress- 
ing rooms, food and beverages, stage passes, 
security, and complimentary tickets, just to name a 

Indeed the rider is quite a confusing matter but 
unfortunately it is the most important part of the 
contract with a band. Having a good agent who can 
dig for you is essential if you and your college are 
going to get a good deal. There are two types of 
contracts you can choose between; the Union con- 
tract or the Civil form. The college prefers the civil 
form because it is more negotiable, whereas the 
band's union would arbitrate with the college and 
this proves to be much more of a hassel. Now we 
are going to enter the rider. As our eyes and our 
minds travel through each page we must pick out 
what is necessary against what is bull shit! We must 
always keep an eye out for surprises! Make sure 
that there are no open clauses and that everything 
is settled and in order. 

When you are reading over the contract and the 
rider you must know the business. Always push for 
reasonable requests. Lay all the details out on the 
table that you know. There are certain key ideas to 
be kept in mind when negotiating the rider. The 
bands agent will try to screw you over and get away 
with murder if you let him. The contract is the first 
step in a relationship with the road crew, and the 
band, not the last step. The most important aspect 
of the contract and rider is that it is not just the 
bands contract, it is the colleges also, so you should 
fight for all you can achieve. 

Next week — the set up 
In two weeks — the concert itself

Dear Editors: 

1 have a response to the article last week on 
Student Directories. 

Dear Lost Student, 

The now distinct student directories have in the 
past been perhaps the most utilized publication 
available to the students. 

A student directory unites the student body by 
allowing the power of each student to contact and 
communicate with each other. 

I sensed by your article last week that you were 
not pleased about the "priviledged few, lucky devil 
R.A.'s getting the directories". The R.A.'s are 

Don't blame the R.A.'s, instead organize a cam- 
paign, and emphasize the importance and the 
demand of student directories. 

It is your choice! Do something. Don't wait for so- 
meone else to do it. Take it to Student Govern- 
ment. Start a petition and organize letters. I would, 
but I don't have to. I am a lucky devil! 

A Lucky Devil 

From the Editors' Desk 

When the Ram Pages decided to feature the 
football team's successful season in this issue, the 
complaints started almost immediately. Some stu- 
dents objected to the front page coverage on the 
basis of the disproportionated press coverage that 
the football team receives compared with the other 
sports. Others feel that sharing a divisional title was 
no great accomplishment, especially if one con- 
siders the head to head competition with Juniata, 
the other co-champion team. But a majority of 
the complaints were unfounded, being apparently 
based only on anti-football prejudice. 

It is clear that the football team holds an unusual 
reputation at Del Val. The prejudice against it has 
not subsided even after the team's second con- 
secutive title year. Though this is not a new pro- 
blem, it is still puzzling to those involved with the 
football team. 

The problem is unique to D.V.C. I have never 
seen any team — at any school — that was so 
highly criticized. Even Northwestern University, 
without a win in almost three full football seasons, 
has more school support than our team. As an 
editor of this paper representing student interest 
and reporting on school news, the football team's 
reputation has been a constant problem for me. 

The football team's victory in the tough Northern 
Division certainly earns them recognition in our 
paper. It is only a shame that the victory will not be 
shared and enjoyed by the whole school.

What You Can Do About It 

by Martha Gehringer 

Last week two freshman from Wolfsohn were 
dismissed from the college for vandalism and 
malicious mischief that occured during the Hallo- 
ween weekend. They were charged by the Dean of 
Student's Office with the following offenses: 

• vandalism to vending machines in Berkowitz 
and theft from the machines. 

• vandalism and breaking in to three student 
auto's in the parking lot and theft of a CB. 

• cutting a screen in Elson and throwing a dead 
skunk into a student's room. 

• causing commotion in the dorm and personal 
property loss. 

• slicing the tires of two cars in Segal parking 

• moving boulders from in front of the library 
onto the thoroughfare. 

• failure to adhere to college alcohol policy. 

The decision to dismiss these students from 
college came following a hearing before the student 
conduct committee which includes students, facul- 
ty, and administration. The committee then made 
the recommendation to the president and the 
recommendation was approved. 

The college was able to press charges because of 
students, who had witnessed the actions, came 
forth with the needed information, without their 
help, the freshman would've gotten away. More 
student help is needed to stop vandalism to college 
and personal property, which is costly to everyone. 
Reports of vandalism can be reported to Mr. 
Tasker's office, the Resident Life Office, or to the 
R.A.'s, any and all information and names will be 
held in strictest confidence. 

Dear Aggie 

Dear Aggie, 

I have recently decided to go to graduate school 
after I leave DVC next May. The problem is that I 
don't know whether to feel proud of myself for con- 
tinuing my education or feel pity because I can't 
face the thought of working in the real worid. What 
do you think? 

A smart dummy 

Dear Smart, 

Don't put yourself down for having the courage 
to go on to grad school (that's no easy step) . If the 
idea of furthering your education is the reason you 
want to attend school, good decision — a little extra 
"smarts" never hurt anyone. The real world will still 
be there for you to step into whenever you choose. 
Good luck! 


Dear Aggie, 

1 have two friends that I care about very much. 
They are roommates and this presents a problem. 
Whenever I give one the kind of individual atten- 
tion that makes real friendships the other gets 
jealous. I can't seem to get the point across that in- 
terpersonal relationships are more important than 
competition for attention, I'm afraid that I will even- 
tually lose both friends. 

Worried about friends 

Dear Worried, 

Honesty and understanding are two important 
ideas involved with friendship. Re-explain to them 
that there is no need for competition between 
friends and that you value each opinion. If one 
becomes more important to you and the other is a 
real friend he/she will understand.

A Game Without Winners 

by Joanne Lubanski 

For the past few months and years the Ram 
Pages has been reporting about the problem of van- 
dalism on campus. Without trying to sound like 
another boring or griping article about vandalism, 
the Ram Pages would like to present to the student 
body the realities, the importance, and the possible 
solutions of this problenh. 

The reality of vandalism on this campus is that it 
affects everyone. If you sit back in your room and 
say "Nothing has ever happened to me, so I guess 
I've got nothing to worry about," you better check 
your college tuition statement the following year. 

Vandalism is neither cute nor funny, |?ut destruc- 
tive. It makes this campus an ugly mess. Would you 
like to see a clean campus or a pig sty? I don't think 
my parents should have difficulty in telling the dif- 
ference between farm 3 and the campus! 

You can see the importance of this problem. But 
what can the students do about it? How can we pre- 
vent any more damage from occuring? We can just 
say "Let security take care of it." Can security be at 
every dorm, in the orchard, at the farm, and the 
parking lot at all hours of the night? Yes. they can 
be there at certain times but not all the time. 

Is it fair to make the students get up at 2 a. m to 
guard their dorms? This argument can go on 
forever and must be worked out by security and the 
students. But students and security can't point 
fingers at each other and say that one or the other 
is not doing their job. The only result that comes 
from this is more property broken and more of a 
gap between security and the students. 

Instead of making such a gap, let's have security, 
residence life, and the students work together. 
Security and residence life should not try to blame 
the students of the damaged dorms for being ir- 
responsible and students should feel free to report 
any vandalism to security or to their RA. This is one 
of the fundamental solutions to the problem. If van- 
dals realize they can't get away with destruction, 
(they're not stupid) they will stop. Incidentally, 
even today, if you report an act of vandalism, your 
name will be kept confidential by security and 
residence life. Residence life and security are not 
the bad guys: it's the vandals! 

Another solution to vandalism is for students, in- 
stead of destroying the campus, to turn their energy 
into doing non -destructive pranks. Student who do 
non-destructive pranks are not only funny but also 
lighten up the tension on campus. Vandalism cre- 
ates problems; pranks create humor and heroes. 

In conclusion, vandalism is a major problem on 
campus. It can be stopped and corrected with co- 
operation and a change of people's views. During 
the winter the vandalism goes down because of the 
cold (but there still are some isolated incidents). 
Let's lick this problem before A-Day and save 
everyone some headaches, some bills, and some

Boot Susquehanna 9-3 

by Art Barillo 

The Aggies, led by Bob Hudoka's three field goals and an outstanding effort by the defense, dealt 
Susquehanna a 9-3 loss. With this win the Aggies gained a share of the M.A.C. Northern Division Co- 
Championship with Juniata. Hudoka's field goals of 22, 25, and 26 yards were all the Aggies needed 
after being stopped by the Susquehanna defense on three drives in the first half. 

The Aggie defense kept pressure on the Crusaders offense all afternoon by blocking three field goal 
attempts, intercepting the quarterback two times and registering seven sacks. Three of the sacks were 
by linebacker Mark Bream . 

Del Val's first score came after an Eric Reynolds 25-yard run from the Susquehanna 40 and an 
8-yard gain by Tom Kirk but came up short at the four-yard line and Hudoka kicked his first field goal. 

After the following kickoff the defense forced the Crusaders to punt. Rod Bates returned the ball 15 
yards to the opponents 43. O'Neill threw to Tankersley for 23 yards. Reynolds then ran for 13 but a 
penalty called it back. With a first and twenty five, O'Neill hit Dan Glowatski for 20 yards then came to 
Reynolds for 12 morer Two ensuing penalties gave the Aggies first and goal at the fourteen and on 
three plays failed to take it in. Hudoka kicked his second field goal for a 6-0 lead. 

After an exchange of punts, Jim Duncan picked off an Earl Fullerton pass and returned it 15 yards 
and combined with a penalty the Aggies had a first and ten at the Susquehanna 35-yard line. C^ the 
second play from scrimmage Tom Kirk threw a halfback pass to Tankersley in the endzone but it was 
called back. After another incomplete pass the Aggies were forced to punt. 

What proved to be the Aggies final score came just before the end of the half. Rod Bates made 
another fine return of a Crusader punt for 23 yards to the Susquehanna 35-yard line. O'Neill then fired 
to Reynolds down the sideline to the six. After three running attempts they failed to score. Hudoka's 
field goal attempt was good but a roughing the kicker penalty gave them an automatic first down. Two 
runs and a quarterback sack brought Hudoka in once more for his third field goal and a 9-0 lead. 

In the third quarter Susquehanna started from their 46 after an Aggie punt and moved down to the 
Del Val 26-yard line where the defense shut them down. Kicker Frank Riggetiano attempted a 45-yard 
field goal which was no good. An offside call gave him another try and this time it was blocked by Jim 

In the fourth quarter Susquehanna had fourth and inches at the Del Val 30 and pass to the 20 gave 
them the needed first down. After a run, imcomplcte pass, and a bonecrushing sack by Al Applegate 
and Mark Bream, the Crusader attempted their third field goal, which was no good. 

Following an Aggie fumble the Crusaders had a first and ten at our own 36. Gaining two first downs 
to the 13-yard line Applegate and Bream each sacked the quarterback driving Susquehanna back to the 
38-yard line. Riggitiano came in and boomed a 51-yard field qoal to make it 9-3. 

Susquehanna's last hopes faded when linebacked Tim Boyes picked off a Fullerton pass and return- 
ed it 15 yards to the Crusaders 17 where the Aggies ran out the clock, capping off a fine 8-2 season, the 
most wins in the school's history. 


Men's and Women's Results from 
M.A.C. and N.C.A.A. Regional Competition 

This year the men of Del Val did an outstanding 
job in their bid for the MAC title two weeks ago. 
This is the first time we had two people finish in the 
top ten: Jim Parson, *1 and Rich Weaver, *9. Two 
years ago Jim Parsons finished in the 5th positions; 
three years ago Jim finished in the 10th position . 

For the women, Jeanne Cranney performed su- 
perbly speeding in at *7. All of the men and 
women who ran deserve a great deal of credit for 
an outstanding performance as a team. 

Last week the N.C.A.A. Regional race was held. 
This race is the qualifying race for the National 
competition to determine who is *1 in the U.S.A. 
This year Jim Parsons finished 2nd over all. Last 
year Jim came in at *10. Jeanne Cranney came in 
at an impressive 11th place, but missed qualifying 
by one position. This year was the first chance for 
women to qualify in N.C.A.A. competition. 

This past weekend "Doc" Berthold and Jim Par- 
sons traveled to Wisconsin where the National 
Cross Country meet was held. In order to make All 
American, Jim would have to had finished in the 
top 25 positions. Last year Jim came in 43rd but of 
240. This year they have cut down the entrees to 
160 or so runners. The course is on the shore of 
Lake Michigan and is very hilly. There was no snow 
on the ground at last report. Let's hope Jim had a 
successful race, and that he finished within the top

Basketball Preview: 

It's basketball time again and the Aggies are hop- 
ing they can improve last seasons 4-20 season. 
They will be depending heavily on the newcomers, 
as five members of last seasons team will not be 
playing this year. Two of these five are last seasons 
leading scorer Bill Walters and the leading re- 
bounder Tom Kehoe. 

Returning guards Jay Nichols, Mark Tymes, Saul 
Bradley, and Gary Ulrich will be joined by junior 
transfer Jim Leddy as well as freshman Brad Leslie 
and Andy Demkowich. Sophomore Kevin Timo- 
chenko is the only forward returning but he will be 
assisted by sophomore Walt Weir, who sat out last 
season with an ankle injury, and freshmen Adam 
Citko and Joe Gleason. The Aggies with the loss of 
the "big men" will be depending on 6'6" freshman 
Art Den Hartog at the center position. 

"With so many new faces, it is hard to tell where 
we stand at this time," stated Coach Les Lombardi. 
"As coaches and players, we have our work cut out 
for us, but our primary concern is putting a 
cohesive unit on the floor by our first game and 
Constantly improving." 

The Aggies will open the 1980-81 season on the 
road against Catholic University on November 28 
and University of Richmond on November 30. The 
home opener will be on December 2 against MAC 
opponent Wilkes College.

Squeeze - East Side Stoiy 

This recent release, co-produced by Elvis 
Costello, attempts to escort new wave from its tur- 
mulous puberty. The meticulous vocal harmonies 
and waist-deep social themes set this recording 
apart from its peers. Unfortunately, Squeeze points 
in too many different musical directions, leading us 
nowhere. This collection of love spn^s sounds 
much like a Beatles greatest hits if Lennon was 
replaced by "Yours Truly" Elvis C. 

Squeeze tries hard, often two hard, to demon- 
strate their versatility of musical talent. The songs 
run the range from hot rockers like In Quintessence 
(check your dictionary on that one) to country 
ballads like Sonneone Else's Bell. 

The lyrics on these three minute songs are im- 
pressive. Check out the play on words in FHole 
which, believe it or not, is refering to a musical in- 
strument. Another high point is the amazingly com- 
plete characterization of the English version dumb 
blonde in Vanity Fair. 

If you are looking for something different in new 
music. Squeeze is worth lending an ear. Squeeze is 
unconventional, maybe refined, maybe corny, but 
definitely worth the consideration.

I U.S. War Games in the Middle East 


j by Warren Lewis 

This year is the largest mobilization of men 
and machines from the U.S. to another country. 
45,000 men and worpen from selected branches of 
the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines have been 
moved to the Middle East for training under the 
harshest environmental conditions of all: the 
desert. One minute it is hot and dry, the next 
minute you are battling in a blinding sand storm. 
The sand gets into food, jams weapons, and traps 
men and machines. Our forces will be stationed in 
parts of Egypt, the Sudan, and two other countries 
to learn how to cope with the given conditions. 
Many of these people are our age. It doesn't quite 
sound like the ideal vacation but it is what the com- 
mercials say. A chance to travel, experience, and a 
great way to start.

Landscape-Nursery Club Presents: Derek Geer 
Last Tuesday night, November 17, the Landscape- 
Nursery Club presented Derek Geer and his amaz- 
ing story of how he started a career as a small 
newspaper journalist, took up photography of 
plants as a hobby and how his skills as a writer, 
photographer, and a business man enabled him to 
become an important figure in the world of plants 
and photography. The main body of the program 
was a breath taking slide show of his impressions of 
nature, capturing the beauty of vast estates, fern 
gardens, topiaries, rock and cactus gardens, 
tropical paradises and much more. In the spring he 
will be coming out with his second book on 
Photography of Vegetables and information on the 
home garden, useful to anyone who enjoys 
gardening. Derek Geer was a delightful speaker 
although I admit he lost me at the beginning when 
he was talking about films, cameras, exposures, 
and tripods. Watch for Landscape-Nursery club 
events and speakers in the near future.

Fourth Annual Variety Spectacular 

Photo by Ralph Wahl 

Eric Pyle and Paul Benson revive a couple 
of old Simon and Garfunkle classics. 

The Fourth Annual Variety Show is history. On 
Saturday evening, November 21st, the show was 
performed in front of a crowd of three hundred en- 
thusastic D.V.C. students. The show, sponsored by 
the classes of 82 and 84, went off like clock-work 
with a wide assortment of musical acts and skits. 
Jacky Mento and Carl Vivaldi kept things flowing 
with their zany and wild antics. They provided a 
show in themselves and proved as a key to the 
event's success. All the performers were well prac- 
ticed and provided a great deal of professionalism 
throughout the entire evening. 

This year a new concept was added to the annual 
spectacular. A panel of select judges determined 
this year's winners. Using a detailed ballot, the 
judges scored the performers on originality, crowd 
appeal, cooperation, and overall talent. The scores 
were tallied throughout the evening and within 
minutes of the closing act the winning performers 
were annnounced. 

An old crowd favorite, Craig Edgerton, won first 
place in the Arts Category with his touching rendi- 
tion of two original tunes. Eric Pyle and Paul Ben- 
son captured second place with their duet of two 
classic favorites. Sweeping the Comedy Category 
of first and second place was Greg Wolek. Greg ex- 
ecuted two hilarious skits with a great deal of talent 
and ease. Overall, the judges must of had a difficult 
time because of all the talent expressed during the 
entire evening. The crowd enjoyed the event and 
many students are already thinking and planning 
for next year's variety show.

From the Editors' Desk: 

The editors are pleased to announce that the 
photographs in this newspaper are now processed 
by the Ram Pages photography staff In the college 

. Earlier this year we had attempted to work out an 
agreement with the Photography Club to develop 
and print our photos. Apparently the Photography 
Club never got organized this year, so we decided 
to try doing our own photo processing. 

Ralph Wahl, photography editor, will be in 
charge of the darkroom operation. Ralph will be 
very willing to coordinate with the Photography 
Club if this group is revived in the future. 

We expect that this forward step in our photo 
journalism will cut costs, speed production, and 
improve the overall quality of our paper.

Personnel Rep. Visits DVC 

by Cornelia Prundeanu 

On November 18, members of the Personal 
Management and the Industrial Relations classes 
were pleased to welcome a guest speaker. Gene 
Avella from Brown Boveri Electric, Inc. As the 
company's employment and safety manager, Mr. 
Avella is responsible for hiring new employees as 
well as implementing workers' compensation and 
fringe benefit programs. 

Mr. Avella spoke primarily on how companies 
are putting the Occupational Safety and Health Ad- 
ministration regulations and the Equal Employment 
laws into effect. An important point brought up dur- 
ing a discussion on safety was that the money spent 
on making the workplace safer is more than recov- 
ered by the corresponding savings in payments to 
injured workers. 

To comply with Equal Employment Opportunity 
Commission laws, a company must hire a percen- 
tage of women and minorities equal to the percen- 
tage possessing certain skills who live in the sur- 
rounding area. For example, if 30% of the women 
in the area would qualify as skilled operators, and 
the company projects 10 openings for operative 
personnel that year, three of the workers hired 
must be women. 

Following the presentation, students had the op- 
portunity to ask questions and learn more about 
these important and sometimes controversial 

A Talent Show 
Thank You! 

What can be said now but a huge thank you? I'd 
like to personally thank all of the students who at- 
tended the 4th Annual Talent Show to make it such 
a huge success. And thanks to all the performers; 
the show could have never gone on without you! 

The senior and sophomore classes sponsored 
this event, however the names are far too 
numerous to mention of those who helped; set up, 
take down, sound, lights, refreshments, advertis- 
ing, the stagehands, as well as our fine panel of 
judges. A special thank you also goes out to the 
Dining Hall staff as well as Mr. Tasker's office and 
even security for all their help. 

It is so rewarding to be a part of such a large 
group of students working many hard hours to put 
on such a fine performance for the students and by 
the students. Thank you all once again.

The Big Production 

(Part 3) 
Setting up for the Concert 

Following the agreements in the contract the gym 
is set-up in the following manner. Student govern- 
ment officers and volunteers start setting up the big 
gym the night before the show. A large plastic can- 
vas mat is placed over the gym floor to protect it 
from being damaged. Stage sections are brought 
down from the storage closets in the upper gym 
and assembled the way the band needs them. Ad- 
ditional stage sections may have to be rented. 
Chairs are rented for the performance and are set- 
up leaving aisles for fire and safety. The bleachers 
are brought out to provide adequate seating. 

Upon the band's road crew arrival the band stage 
manager and student stage manager must coor- 
dinate a working relationship to assure a smooth 
and speedy set-up. The college is required to pro- 
vide a set number of volunteer stage hands. Moving 
trucks have to be unloaded quickly and carefully so 
that the stage set-up may proceed. Setting up for 
lights and sound are difficult tasks. Volunteers must 
pay careful attention to the road crew's instructions. 

For the band, the gym locker room must be trans- 
formed from a sport's like atmosphere to a home 
living area complete with carpet, furniture, and 
plants. There may be a buffet table and a dinner 
table prepared in Mr. Marron's apartment by 
students, where the performers can relax after their 
previous performance and often, long road trip. 
Occasionally the band may request outrageous 
items, but most of their requirements are respec- 
table. Maintenance assists with the electrical work. 
Security is provided from the moment the road 
crew arrives until the lock up of the gymnasium at 
the conclusion of the clean up that night. Publica- 
tions must receive preconsent to take photos or 
interviews with the performers. 

After a full days work of setting up, a large sigh of 
relief is heard throughout the gym. At 5:00 p.m. 
the band rolls in in their luxury bus. caravan, etc. 
Ticket takers, security, and fans are all anxious for 
the performance to proceed. 

Next week:

Back Row: Kelli; Goodin. Denise Leonarski, Missy Young, Laura Stevenson, 
Sherru Ogg, Sand]; Yerkes. Donna Cassano, Coach Kath\; Kravitz 



This year's women's basketball team is lead by 
senior co-captain Patti Rissinger and junior co- 
caption Sue Hartung. Both ladies are coming off 
excellent seasons. Sue was the recipient of the 
M.V.P. award and Patti has moved up to fourth in 
D.V.C. scoring. 

Adding to their strengths and experience under 
the boards will be juniors Sandy Yerkes, Shenry 
Ogg, and Laura Stephenson. Stephenson is in- 
juried but when she comes back there will be a fight 
for starting positions. 

The ball handling responsibilities this year will be 
shared by senior Donna Cassano and junior Marcia 

Werner. Both ladies are quick and aggressive which 
sparks their offense. 

Coming off the bench when needed will be Kelly 
Goodin, Missy Young, Grace Kasprzak, and Nancy 
Brake. With the length of our season this year, our 
bench strength will play a very important role. 

As a whole the team is quick, aggressive and full 
of spirit. First year coach Kathy Kravitz is looking 
forward to an excellent season this year. "1 think the 
team has the potential to win the P.A.I.A.W. 
championship and make it to the MAC. playoffs." 
The team is exciting to watch — they're explosive 
and aggressive. 

Co-captain Carl Nebhut, Coach Bob Marshall, and 
Assistant Coach Craig Deacon. 


D.V.C. Wrestling Team coming off a 14-1 
season last year, with a major part of the team be- 
ing freshmen and sophomores, will be looking for 
another good year. With the loss of MAC Cham- 
pions Paul Pearson 167, Wan^en Robertson 176, 
and Hwt. Jeff Bartholomew, the upper weights will 
have a new look. Co-captain Carl Nebhut (Jr.) will 
be at 167, Greg Peltz (Jr.), after a year layoff, will 
be at 177. Tom Zonay a freshman will hold down 
the 190 spot. Two heavyweights hold the unlimited 
spot, Fred Siegfried, 6'4", 250 and Paul Kehagias, 
6'3", 318. The lighter weights should be the same 
as last year with Tom Trumbauer (Jr.) 118 and 
Tony Tarsi (So.) 126. Tony Novak the only senior 
on the squad and runner-up at 134 in the Con- 
ference. Troy Marshall (So.) 142, is also a runner- 
up in the Conference. Mark Sands (So.) 150, and 
co-captain Bruce Stajnrajh will be at 158. 

There are some excellent back-up wrestlers with 
Tony Bon-ello (So.) 118, Mark Colston (Fr.) 126. 
Fred Jones (Fr.) 142, Kevin Stout (Fr.) and Brad 
Hershey (Fr.) at 150. Coach Marshall thinks this is 
the first time he has had a strong starter at every 
weight whereas in the past we have been weak at 
two or three weights and had to depend on 5 or 6 
wrestlers to carry the team load.

Parson Travels to Kenosh! 

Middle Atlantic Conference champion, James 
Parsons, placed second in the N.C.A.A. Mid -East 
regionals qualifying him for the Division III national 
championships held in Kenosh, Wisconsin, November 
20-21, 1981. 

Parsons, running in the mud and snow, along 
with the other competitors managed only a 27.30 
finish, but represented the conference in true style. 

Parsons, a senior business administration major, 
who received the Moose "Athlete of the Year" 
award, was also awarded the teams most valuable 
player trophy for the 1981-82 season. Perhaps his 
finest moment came in the Kutztown meet when he 
broke the home course record, 27:46, held by 
All- American Mike Sheely of Haverford. Parsons 
clocked a 27:34 for the 5 mile course. 

Lady Hoopers 
Have First Game Victory 

by Lorri Gerus 

The women's basketball team started their 
season off right by beating P.A.I.A.W. opponent 
Gwynedd Mercy College, 61-44, on November 23. 

First year coach Kathy Kravitz praised the perfor- 
mance of sophomore guard Sandy Yerkes not only 
for her great offensive game (26 points) , but for her 
consistent and aggressive defensive play. 

New to the team is Sherry Ogg who added 17 
points, 11 of which were from the foul line, and 
also grabbed 17 rebounds. Other players who add- 
ed to the score were senior Donna Cassano (6 pts. 
with 5 assists) and Marcia Werner (6 pts.). 

Their next home game will be Thursday, Dec. 3 
against Wilkes College. There will also be a home 
game, Saturday, Dec. 5 against Western Maryland 
at 2:00.

Dear Aggie 

Dear Aggie, 

I've been dating this girl for about a month, and I 
definitely plan on continuing our relationship. I 
would like to give her a gift for Christmas, but I 
don't know whether I should. If I do give her a pre- 
sent what ideas do you have? 

Stuck for an idea 

Dear Stuck, 

A gift is appropriate whenever its thought is 
sincere. To be safe you can always give her a 
Christmas arrangement of flowers. Each florist has 
a wide selection for you to choose from. Take it 
from an experienced flower giver — girls love them! 


the mood principle: 

If your frame of mind is right, you'll work quickly, 
easily, and more efficiently. So go with your moods 
— not against them! 

Recently four Del Val students went to the FFA 
National Convention in Kansas City, MO. Scott 
Clouden was the PA. State Delegate Alumni Asso- 
ciation; Lance Forster, Jr. was in the Farm Man- 
agement Contest; both Denise Emly and Nathan 
Hetzell went out for American Farmer. At the end 
of the convention, Lance received a bronze medal 
for farm management, Denise and Nathan achiev- 
ed the American Farmer degree. Let's congratulate 
these people for a "Job Well Done". 


Plant Exploration in China Continues 
After Lapse of 50 Years 

In the early 1900's, a plant explorer named E.H. 
Wilson made seven trips to China over twenty years 
to bring back much of the plant material that today 
enriches our Western gardens. Many species of the 
plants that you probably take for granted, from 
Dogwood to Rhododendron, were brought back to 
this country as a result of these early expeditions. 
Now, more than fifty years later, the Morris Arbore- 
tum of the University of Pennsylvania has joined 
forces with other botanical institutions to resume 
the exploration of China's rich and exciting flora. 
Mr. Paul Meyer, curator of the Arboretum's living 
collection, has just returned from a seven week ex- 
ploration trip of China and Korea with a group of 
20 botanists from England, Germany, France, Hol- 
land, and the United States. The Chinese Moun- 
taineering Association hosted the visit, which was 
led by botanist Roy Lancaster of Britain. Mr. Meyer 
collected over 200 batches of seed representing 
new plant varieties that exhibit valuable characteris- 
tics of hardiness, resistance to disease, or particular- 
ly ornamental features. After sorting, treatment, 
and sowing, surplus seed will be distributed to 
nurserymen and botanical institutions throughout 
Europe and the United States. There they will 
be cultivated and evaluated to determine useful 
additions to the horticultural world.

The unofficial Del Val Winter Track Team travel- 
ed to Lehigh University's Philip Rauch Field House 
last Sunday. The team handled by Coaches Marty 
Stern and Lee K. Robinson faired very well against 
some very tough competition. 

The day was highlighted by two record breaking 
performances. Jeff Robinson broke the school 
record in the 600-yard run with a time of 1:14.4.

The wrestling team added three more big wins 
Tuesday against LaSalle, Delaware State, and 
Swarthmore. D.V.C. won a total of 23 out of the 
25 bouts wrestled in the quad meet, 

Hwt. Paul Kehagias recorded a near record 
13-second pin against Ursinus. 


The young Aggies of Delaware Valley College 
have lost their first five games of the 1981-82 
season. The season started with a road trip to 
Catholic University and the University of Rich- 
mond. In the Catholic University game, the Aggies 
rallied from 9 points down in the first half to come 
within 1 at the half 41 40. Foul trouble for both for- 
wards Kevin Timochenko and Walt Weir made it 
easy for Catholic to pull out to a 98-75 victory. The 
high scorer for D.V.C. was Jay Nichols, a native of 
Washington, DC., with 29 points. 

On Monday, November 30th the Aggies played 
Division 1 powerhouse, the University of Rich- 
mond. The Spiders coming off an upset of Wake 
Forest jumped out to a 41-24 halftimc lead capital- 
izing on their size and quickness. The final score 
was 91-61 and five players scored in double figures 
for the Aggies, Mark Tymes (12), Jay Nichols (10), 
Kevin Timochenko (10), Jim Leddy (10). and Walt 
Weir (11). 

In the first MAC. game, the Aggie lost an over- 
time thriller to Wilkes 70-68. Leading by 1 at the 
half 28-27, the Aggies had to rally from 5 down to 
send the game into overtime. A shot by Mark 
Tymes rolled off the rim at 10 seconds of the over- 
time to make the final score 70-68. Kevin Timo- 
chenko worked the baseline for a career high of 27 
points and Jav Nichols pumped in 14 points from 
the perimeter. The Delaware Valley quintet only 
committed three turnovers in the second half and 
overtime period. 

On Saturday (12/5). the Aggies travelled to 
Elizabethtown and lost their second conference 
game 75-63, Sixteen first half turnovers and sloppy 
play resulted in a 33-29 halftime lear' by E-Town. 
Plaqued by turnovers and a lack ot enough con- 
sistency to mount a comeback Elizabethtown 
posted a 75-63 victory. 

In the final game the Aggies lo*-* another con- 
ference game to Kings College in Wilkes- Barre on 
Monday (12/7). The hot shooting Monarchs open- 
ed a 48-37 halftime lead The Aggie Cagers 
mounted several second half rallies but could not 
cut the lead below 7. Although Delaware Valley 
shot 55% from the floor, the hot sfiooting Monar- 
chs posted a 88-74 victory. Sophomore Jay 
Nichols led all scorers with 25 points 

Lady Aggies Split 

First year coach Kathy Kravitz was able to play 
all 9 team members Wednesday evening against 
Beaver College in a P.A.LA.W. contest played at 
Manor Jr. College Each player contributed in scor- 
ing as the Aggie hoopers tallied 75 points to 
Beaver's 51. 

Sophomore Sandy Yerkes (Hatboro, Pa.) was 
the leading Aggie scorer with 21 points followed by 
senior co-captain Patti Rissinger (Sacramento. Pa.) 
with 15. Yerkes was 9 for 22 from the floor and 3 
for 5 from the foul line. Rissinger recorded a 43% 
shooting 6 for 14 from the field and a 50% , 3 for 6 
from the charity line. 

Junior co-captain Sue Hartung (Belvidere, N.J.) 
led the Aggies in rebounding grabbing 11. Hartung 
also scored 8 points.

game with Wilkes College played Thursday 12/3 in

With Christmas Comes

Dear Editor, 

As concerned dairy majors we feel that the in- 
stallation of a "Coke " machine at the D.V.C. dairy 
is a slap in the face to the dairy industry. We keep 
hearing about the^iact that the government's price 
support on the surplus of milk has plummeted to 
rock bottom levels. This not only affects the hard- 
working dairyperson but the consumer as well. 
Why is it that those affiliated with the dairy fail to 
associate themselves with the problems of the in- 
dustry collectively? Granted, the soda machine 
may be insignificant to some, but the fact that it is in 
the dairy barn is outrageous. We all drink soda 
without even thinking about it. but if'we consider 
that "milk is a natural," why not give the Dairy 
Association equal space by putting in a milk ma- 
chine? After all. how is this going to look to visitors 
when they see milk's number one competitor being 
sold in the same place that milk is being produced? 
We hope that people realize that we are not making 
vast accusations or generalizations. Responses to 
this letter would be greatly appreciated'.

Traditionally, Black Friday, the day after Thanks- 
giving, ushers in the Christmas shopping season. 
Anymore, it seems that everyday until Christmas is 
Black Friday. People rush about and buy presents, 
hoping to find a bargain in the process. Many 
strange and unique happenings occur only during 
this time of year as shoppers come down with the 

I went Christmas shopping the other day with a 
friend at the Montgomery Mall as did hundreds and 
hundreds of other people. Parking was a difficult 
choice. Cruising about the parking lot in despera- 
tion, I spied a shopper entering her car. I told my 
friend to stop the car and wait for her to leave so 
that we could get her spot. Many other drivers had 
the same thought. What could have been a major 
car pile up was avoided by my friend's expert driv- 
ing skills learned from watching "The Dukes of 
Hazard" and old re-runs of "Starsky and Hutch". 
The other car nearest to us was moving for the 
same parking place. Upon seeing the impending 
doom of its present course of action, the car sped 
away in disgust. 

Entering the mall. 1 was astounded to see the 
walkways and shops packed with people. I wasn't 
prepared for what happened n'cxt. Everywhere I 
walked. I had to perform the "shoulder squeeze". 
This is a movement in which the body, especially 
the shoulder region, is squished up tight against 
your body in order to avoid bumping into someone 
else and offending them. Its use is good for only 
about an hour, for the body becomes fatigued and 
tired after this. Then this process is replaced by 
another called the "bump-and-run". That is. bump- 
ing into persons or people and not saying "excuse 
me" or "I'm sorry". 

Arriving at a certain department store. I proceed- 
ed to find a present for an immediate family 
member. Along the way in finding the gift. I 
couldn't help noticing a large crowd gathered about 
a table. All of them were women. The sign above 
the table read "25% off. discount clothes sale". 
Clothes were flying about in the air. People were 
arguing and fighting over the ownership of pieces of 
clothing. Many discontinued the fight, for they had 
fallen under the influence of "battle-fatigue". 1 
secured the would-be present and got in line for the 
check out. The line was extremely long and boring.

Burpee greenhouse readi> for Christmas with 
poinsettia crop. 

What's Up With Burpee's . . . 

by John Herring 

This past summer, word was released that Burpee 
Seed Company, located directly across from 
Delaware Valley College on New Britain Road, 
would close down operations in Doylestown for the 

Those in line were annoyed and complaintive. But 
upon reaching the check out, they all seemed to 
become joviaF and pleasant; in fact, they were nice. 
That is until they had to wait in another line. 

I soon checked out and was referred to the cour- 
tesy desk for a box in which to place the object. The 
check out clerk should have said discourtesy desk, 
for upon my anival, the person who worked at the 
desk said in an unorthodox manner, "What do you 
want?" I responded dispassionately, "I need a box 
for a gift." "Let me see it. — Nice shade of purple," 
she said, "not the best, but nice." 1 said, "Give me 
the box please." She gave me an icy stare while giv- 
ing me the box. I left the premises of the store. 

After a few more presents and a few more hours 
had passed, a strange feeling came over me. My 
arms felt stretched out and painful. I had "shopper's 
arm," a dreaded disease found among shoppers 
exposed to large gift carrying. 1 managed to combat 
the terrifying illness by resting a while before contin- 
uing. While sitting on the bench, I overheard a mid- 
dle-aged lady talking to herself. She was going 
through a list of presents through her mind that she 
had already bought, trying to figure out if she miss- 
ed anyone on her shopping list. This is known as 
Many become afflicted with this syndrome by mere 
after thought. "Did I get so-and-so this?," or "I can't 
remember if I got so-and-so his present." Passersby 
view the incident as a person gone mad and in- 
capable of reasoning. That is until they too come 
down with this affliction themselves. 

Being bored of the whole scene, ! left with my 
presents to go back to the campus in order to rest 
and relax from a hard day's shopping. My friend 
dropped me off. She came up to "ly room for a 
while before leaving. Soon 1 was all by myself trying 
to relax and enjoy the rest of the evening. I took my 
shoes off. Dr. Scholl. you don't make odor eaters 
the way you used to! 

first tirhe since 1888. Recently, students' questions 
concerning the property, its future, and the Col- 
lege's involvement with the acreage began to sur- 
face. Along with the questions, though, came 
rumors that Del Val had purchased additional 
greenhouses and that soon to be built townhouses 
would become our new neighbors. These rumors, 
however, are not true. 

The Burpee land, which runs from New Britain 
Road to the other side of 611. was first purchased 
by W. Atlce Burpee in 1888. During this time, the 
now well-known Fordhook Farms became the first 
Agriculture Experiment Station in the U.S., and in 
addition, was the sight of numerous seed trials until 
it was discovered that a more favorable climate in 
California would better suit the trial requirements. 
Despite the trend to move the growing portion of 
the business westward, though, many trials were 
still conducted at Fordhook until recently, when an 
additional eight acres were purchased at the nearby 
Warminster site. 

The estate itself, according to Mrs. David 
Burpee, who now resides at Fordhook. has been 
broken down into seven subdivisions, one of 
which, supporting the Burpee home, will not be 
sold.' In addition, an untold portion was donated to 
Bucknell University, but plans for it have yet to be 

As far as our .college is concerned, according to 
Mrs. Work, there are no forseeable plans to pur- 
chase any of the land. However. Delaware Valley 
College has been given use of the greenhouse com- 
plex by Mrs. Burpee, which, as told by Mr. Cowhig. 
is as big as our latest greenhouse complex, and 
covers approximately six thousand square feet. 
Conditions of the loan include our maintanence 
and heating of the facilities. Besides the 
greenhouses, several coldframes at the farm have 
already been put to use by preparing bulbs for the 
Philadelphia Flower Show. 

Presently, the greenhouses are being used by 
various floriculture classes for the production of 
crops such as poinsettias, mums, oxacums, and 
gerber daisies. Furthermore, bedding plants will be 
grown in the spring. The benefits, as junior OH ma 
jor Mike Schimph states, arc numerous. "A lot of 
experience is being picked up by our assignment to 
a specific crop and the requirements to maintain the 
plants by pinching, training, and fertilizing them. 
The extra space at Burpee's has allowed more flex 
ibility and space not provided by our present 
houses alone." 

Although the exact future of the Burpee farm is 
still undetermined, it is known that a sizable portion 
of the estate will remain in the family. The rest 
remains either unsold or awaiting plans. One thing 
is apparent — we are no doubt benefiting from the 
increase in the availability of usable facilities. 


Th^re Killing Mr. Spockl 

Recently, the movie "Star Trek 11" was being 
filmed in Hollywood and some alarming news 
about one of the Trekkie's heroes came out. 

It seems that Leonaitt Nimoy, alias Mr. Spock, is 
tired of playing Mr. Spock and it was written in the 
movie script that he would be "killed off' in the next 
movie. Consequently, Star Trek fans were outrag- 
ed. What, no rnore Mr. Spock? Will Star Trek ever 
be the same? Trekkies actually are planning on 
boycotting the movie! 

Actually, having seen each "Star Trek" program 
about ten times and the last "Star Trek" movie, I 
think that the writers and directors of "Star Trek" 
are very talented and if they found a way to get rid 
of Spock discretely, they should do so. Leonard 
Nimoy has done a great job as Spock and "Star 
Trek" needs a change. Besides, is it fair to put 
Leonard Nimoy in a job he does not want? Let 
Spock go out as a hero instead of an aging Vulcan! 
(Incidentally, they should get rid of Dr. McCoy, 
too, because one can't have Dr. McCoy without 

Finally, 1 think the directors should not back 
down to the fans. If the fans had their way, the TV 
show or movie would have never been a success. It 
would be like telling Shakespeare not to kill Hamlet 
in his play "Hamlet". 

As for me, see you at "Star Trek 11". 

Good Times are Rolling Around 

by Warren Lewis 

In the last couple of years two sports have tre- 
mendously increased in popularity: Roller skating 
and racquetball. Three roller rinks are in the vicinity 
of Del Val. Skate Ranch is the largest. It is located 
north on 309 and is about a 15-minute drive. It of- 
fers contemporary as well as organ music. Cost is 
$2.50 for admission plus a minimal cost for skate 
rental. Be aware that they are always crowded. 

The Roller Rink on 611 is 20 minutes from Del 
Val. Cost for skates is approximately the same. This 
rink may not be as enjoyable because of the 
lighting, the music, and the younger age groups 
that hang out there. 

Young's Regency Skating Center is my prefer- 
ence over the other two. It is located south on Rt. 
202 and east on Rt. 73 about 27 minutes from the 
college. Admission is $2.50 on weekdays, $3.00 
on weekends plus $1.00 for skate rental. If you 
would like to go to any of the skating centers on a 
Friday or Saturday night — go to the late skates 
from 11:30 - 2:00. The reason is that all of the 
younger age groups skate the early shift. YoLing's is 
closed on Mondays. There is also day skattng at 
Young's if you prefer. For more information see 
Warren Lewis. Goldman 229. 345-9854. or seek

Genetic Engineering Seminar 
given at D.V.C. 

by Michael S. Kriebel 

Dr. Stephen Koontz. of Seton Hall University. 
East Orange. New Jersey, gave a seminar about 
genetic engineering on Friday. December 4. Dr. 
Koontz is an assistant professor of Chemistry at 
Seton. and the seminar was given at the request of 
the D.V.C. Chemistry Club. 

The talk included some history of genetics: how 
DNA. the genetic material, is changed by various 
processes — both systematic and random: the pres- 
ent state of the science: and most importantly, 
projects for the future.

The D.V.C. Band and Chorale are jointly

Concert, on Monday evening at 8:00. Guests are

Highlights of the evening include the arrival of 
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth; Harpsichord, record- 
er, chorus, and instrumental music; dances per- 
formed by the chorus, and a sumptuous meal pre- 
pared by the Royal Dining Hall Staff.

Bah-hum-bug! Hey all you Scrooges out there, 
isn't it great not to have to get into the Christmas 
spirit? Finals are a great excuse to be a real grouch 
during what most of the world considers the mer- 
riest time of the year. Who wants to have to go 
home and get in the spirit, decorate the tree, bake 
cookies, go shopping, and just be with your loved 
ones for the holidays. Everyone knows it's the week 
before Christmas that really makes this the best time 
of the year — so what the hell arc we doing here? 
Because we just love coming home as everyone is 
sitting down to Christmas Eve dinner. Then having 
to rush right out again to do all your shopping 
before the stores dose. (Love those crowds.) It's 
always nice to feel like a visitor in your own home 
on your favorite holiday. So yeah for finals the day 
before Christmas — nobody really believes in 
Christmas spirit anyway . . . or do they? 

By having finals at least a week earlier — 

1. We could get our shopping done 

2. See your friends and family before 

3. For those who have to travel far — 
they could arrive home before the 
holiday rush. 

4. Many families go away for the holi- 
days — it's a great imposition on 
the entire family to have to wait for 
students to come home before they 
can leave on vacation. 

5. Students would appreciate the 
chance to make some "big bucks" 
to pay for their Christmas gifts (also 
to help pay for some tuition) . 

Besides, you don't get to bake cookies, trim the 
tree, and go Christmas caroling!! 

Does it really feel like Christmas to you? It surely 
doesn't to us with finals on our minds — not to 
mention make-ups, and all the other end of 
semester frustrations. We talked to Santa and he 
suggested we start a petition all over campus to 
get final exams moved back a week earlier! Won't 
you help a poor college student have a healthier 
happier Christmas?!!! 

Santa's helpers will be posting petitions in: Cafe- 
teria. Segal Hall. Library, and the Post Office. 

Merry Christmas, 
Santa's Helpers

Bob Fosse's Dancin' has returned to Philadelphia 
for another preview of some of the best dancing 
and choreography this city has seen In some time. 
As the audience is told in the beginning of the 
show, Dancin' has no plot, but then it doesn't need 
one. A continuous panorama of lights and legs 
enchant viewers throughout the performance. 

Most of the music for Dancin' was written by ac- 
claimed artists: Nell Diamond, Cat Stevens, Louis 
Prima, and John Philip Sousa. There are music 
and dancing to fit all tastes and moods. Some of the 
dancing is provocative, showing more body than 
costume, as in the pelvic bounce number "Percus- 
sion," which hits all points, north, east, west, and 

"Fourteen Feet," a number where seven people 
danced with their shoes nailed to the stage. Using 
Cat Stevens "Was a dog a doughnut," and floures- 
cent costumes and black lights, the stage comes 
alive with hands and body movements. 

In the closing act of "America," Fosse turns 
"Yankee Doodle Dandy" into a number that no 
one will forget. The classic "The Stars and Stripes 
Forever" brought the dancing from the turn of the 
century with a twentieth century flair. The entire 
company of 17 dancers do a terrific job with all their 
numbers, and I found the show very enjoyable. 
This ame show, which I saw last year, seems to 
have improved with age. 

Dancin' is currently showing at the Forrest 
Theatre, at 11th and Walnut Street in Philadelphia. 
Tickets can be purchased at the box office or at 
Ticketron. Price range from $15.00 to $26.00 
depending on the seat and the night you choose to 
go on. Tickets are available now until Dec. 19.

The wrestling team added three more big wins 
Tuesday against LaSalle, Delaware State, and

25 bouts wrestled in the quad meet. 

Hwt. Paul Kehagias recorded a near record

The young Aggies of Delaware Valley College 
have lost their first five games of the 1981-82 
season. The season started with a road trip to 
Catholic University and the University of Rich- 
mond. In the Catholic University game, the Aggies 
rallied from 9 points down in the first half to come 
within 1 at the half 41-40. Foul trouble for both for- 
wards Kevin Timochenko and Walt Weir made it 
easy for Catholic to pull out to a 98-75 victory. The 
high scorer for D.V.C. was Jay Nichols, a native of 
Washington, DC. with 29 points. 

On Monday. November 30th the Aggies played 
Division 1 powerhouse, the University of Rich- 
mond. The Spiders coming off an upset of Wake 
Forest jumped out to a 41-24 halftime lead capital- 
izing on their size and quickness. The final score 
was 91-61 and five players scored in double figures 
for the Aggies, Mark Tymes (12). Jay Nichols (10), 
Kevin Timochenko (10). Jim Leddy (10), and Walt 
Weir (11). 

In the first MAC. game, the Aggie lost an over- 
time thriller to Wilkes 70-68. Leading by 1 at the 
half 28-27, the Aggies had to rally from 5 down to 
send the game into overtime. A shot by Mark 
Tymes rolled off the rim at 10 seconds of the over- 
time to make the final score 70-68. Kevin Timo- 
chenko worked the baseline for a career high of 27 
points and Jav Nichols pumped in 14 points from 
the perimeter. The Delaware Valley quintet only 
committed three turnovers in the second half and 
overtime period. 

On Saturday (12/5), the Aggies travelled to 
Elizabethtown and lost their second conference 
game 75-63. Sixteen first half turnovers and sloppy 
play resulted in a 33-29 halftime lead by E-Town. 
Plaqued by turnovers and a lack of enough con- 
sistency to mount a comeback Elizabethtown 
posted a 75-63 victory. 

In the final game the Aggies lost another con- 
ference game to Kings College in Wilkes-Barre on 
Monday (12/7). The hot shooting Monarchs open- 
ed a 48-37 halftime lead. The Aggie Cagers 
mounted several second half rallies but could not 
cut the lead below 7. Although Delaware Valley 
shot 55% from the floor, the hot shooting Monar- 
chs posted a 88-74 victory. Sophomore Jay 
Nichols led all scorers with 25 points. 

Lady Aggies Split 

First year coach Kathy Kravitz was able to play 
all 9 team members Wednesday evening against 
Beaver College in a P.A.I.A.W. contest played at 
Manor Jr. College Each player contributed in scor- 
ing as the Aggie hoopers tallied 75 points to 
Beaver's 51. 

Sophomore Sandy Yerkes (Hatboro, Pa.) was 
the leading Aggie scorer with 21 points followed by 
senior co-captain Patti Rissinger (Sacramento, Pa.) 
with 15. Yerkes was 9 for 22 from the floor and 3 
for 5 from the foul line. Rissinger recorded a 43% 
shooting 6 for 14 from the field and a 50% , 3 for 6 
from the charity line. 

Junior co-captain Sue Hartung (Bclvidere, N.J.) 
led the Aggies in rebounding grabbing 1 1 . Hartung 
also scored 8 points. 

The Aggie Hoopers were not as fortunate in their 
game with Wilkes College played Thursday 12/3 in

Dear Editors . . . 


It is of great regret that this letter must be written. 
The fact is that the girls of Cooke Hall have been 
getting "ripped off." Now we don't know if the 
problem is internal or an act of the frequent passer- 
by. There have been many cases of money being 
taken, now even cameras have been removed from 
behind closed doors. A rare amount of people got 
involved in decorating their rooms and doors, why 
do these people have to suffer the consequences of 
having handcrafted wreaths taken and strewn 
across campus? Even a "borrowed" pair of hand- 
painted clogs from Holland were rudely taken from 
a decorated doorway. Please return these items! If 
you're coy enough to take these items without 
anyone's seeing you, why not return them the 
same way? 

The fact that our doors must be locked at all 
times makes the atmosphere on campus, or at least 
in Cooke Hall, very insecure. Why should we have 
to suffer because there are a few inconsiderate, 
selfish thieves thriving on other peoples' valuables? 
The main reason for this letter is to let everyone 
know what's going on and to stress keeping your 
doors locked and eyes open. As for the person or 
persons responsible for the various acts of theft, all 
we can say is GET HELP!!

Hot and Cold 

This week at College you may feel as if winter is 
following you into your classrooms and some dorm 
rooms. While students in the Mandell Science 
building were able to disrobe their outer garments, 
students in the Ag Building were shivering in their 
uncomfortable wooden chairs attempting to stay 
warm and keep up with the business at hand. The 
heat is now turned on in the Ag Building The cold- 
est place to be on campus is at Farm 3 and the Dairy. 
Fortunately our beef and dairy animals are tolerant 
to the low temperatures. There are heating units 
where the young lambs and young pigs are nursed. 
If you were to provide heat for the larger farm 
animals you would cause condensation in the Farm 
building which would lead to respiratory prob- 
lems and possibly other illnesses. Some of the farm 
machinery has become incapacitated due to the cold 

by Warren Lewis 

making it necessary to park them in the heated Farm 
Machinery building or have electric heaters on them 
As far as the temperature in the dorms goes — the 
hottest places are Elson, Cooke, and Barness Halls. 
At one point, some of the windows in Elson became 
frozen shut making the only escape from the ex- 
tremely dry heat out the room door. Goldman Hall 
was unreasonably cold for the first few nights. The 
stairwell doors to the "T" were both off their hinges 
allowing the cold air to make the dorm cold For- 
tunately it only took 2 months to repair one of the 
doors which was in a decayed condition since the 
first semester. We're warm now! 

A nice cold place to be (if you have ice skates) is 
Lake Archer. Several people have skated success- 
fully although there was one hole in the ice last 

week. There are still some thin spots so if you do go 
skating don't go alone. 

The main problem has been the ice on the streets 
and walkways on the campus and elsewhere. Some 
people have "kissed their cheeks" on the frozen ice, 
and everyone else has had near falls so you don't 
have to think you are the only one who can't walk 
on ice. Once the temperatures moderate the grounds 
crew will be able to plow and chip away more of the 
ice — weather permitting. You may wonder; why 
aren't we salting? The answer: $. For now we are 
using a grit material. However this is also expensive 
and is causing damage when it is brought indoors. We 
are now looking into using sand. It is more efficient 
and much less expensive. Just hope that tempera- 
tures will moderate and that will take care of all our 
winter worries. 

Dr. Pelle recognized for 
30 i;ears of service 

Recently the Animal Science Division recognized 
Dr. Pelle for 30 years of dedicated service at a 
dinner held at Conti Restaurant. The Animal 
Science Division also presented him with a plaque' 
which will be placed in his honor in the Feldman Ag 

Dr. Pelle started here on September 2. 1952. 
and has seen many changes during the past 30 
years. One story he likes to relate is that in his first 
year at DVC there were only 3 cows and 3 seniors 
in the Animal Science Division. There were only 
200 students in the entire program and a very small 
faculty. From this point they tried to improve the 
quality and the number of livestock at Farm 3 thru 
private donations, since no funds were available 
through the college. Slowly the department grew in 
number of students and amount of livestock. 

Dr. Pelle was instrurriental in gaining recognition 
for the college in several ways. First, he entered 
DVC in livestock judging contest with large land 
grant colleges. Then he invited well known experts 
to be lecturers and judges at A-Day This way. they 
learned of the quality of the students and the pro- 
gram already present at DVC. He also persuaded 
and recommended students to enter graduate work 
before the college became accredited. This was un- 
common in the academic world. These students 
and those entering the job market immediately 
became a recognized reflection on the college. 

Dr. Pelle hopes that in the future the department 
will be able to maintain the character of the educa- 
tion system in giving the student both a good aca- 
demic and practical background. He sees a good 
future in Animal Science since well trained students 
are in demand, not just in working with livestock 
but also in pharmacology, feeds, and a variety of 
other jobs. 

Dr. Pelle has always enjoyed working with stu- 
dents and still maintains a good relationship with his 
former students. 

The Latest on the Food 

by John B. Hening 

With the formation of the Student Government 
food committee last fall, many notable changes 
took place in the dining hall. For instance, the fre- 
quency that chicken patties were being served was 
greatly reduced, and the saucing up of the baked 
chicken with barbecue seasoning was a welcome 
variation. In addition, the improvement of the 
meatball sandwich was noticed when better quality 
rolls as well as more and larger meatballs were 

Since last fall, however, when these and other 
changes were first reported on, many new accom- 
plishments have been reached. The one noticed 
the most, no doubt, was the addition of the name 
brand soda machines. Now, instead of pre-mixed 
syrups. Coke, Sprite, and Fanta Root Beer were 
and still are being served. Besides the new soda 
machines, the daily routine of going to breakfast 
and finding donuts each morning was broken with 
the addition of cornbread. english muffins, and 
bagles. The new cream of mushroom soup at lunch 
was also well received as well as macaroni and 
cheese. New on the dinner line were the real pork 
chops as an occasional alternative to the pork 
cutlet, and soup, for those not wanting to eat a full 
entree, was also made available. Extras, such as 
cookie night and a chip 'n dip table were popular, 
and more special events are in the making. 

For those who were not on the regular meal 
plan, chin up, you were not forgotten. Coupons, 
for starters, offering half priced breakfasts and cof- 
fee for a dime were available. Also, with the pur- 
chase of any soda, your cup was refilled for a 

With the start of the new semester came still 
more improvements, most obviously the condi- 
ment table being moved in the dining area to pre- 
vent crowding and allow easier accessibility. 
Changes occuring in the menu include a stuffed 
cabbage dish at lunch and the sprucing up of the 
hamburgers with cheese and ham. know as the trio 
grande sandwich. For those who did not care for 
the potato filling served with the turkey, relief is 
here with bread stuffing, special events, like pop- 
corn and pizza nights are on the way, as well as 
bread and pastry buffets. 

Soon to come in Segal Hall are a number of 
specials designed for those using the snack bar. One, 
called the "Four 'n Pour Deal" works this way, buy 
four large drinks, hamburgers, hotdogs, or french 
fries, and your coupon becomes eligible for the 
drawings held each Friday for four weeks. Each 
week, four winners receive a set of four glasses and a 
pitcher with the Delaware Valley College seal Other 
promotions, besides this, are being planned. 

These improvements, whether in the form of 
menu changes, special promotions and events or 
facility changes have all been well received. 
Regardless of this fact, the importance of support- 
ing these actions cannot be stresst^d enough. 
Whether by using the snack bar, dropping your com- 
ments in the suggestion boxes, or your feel- 
ings to the dining hall staff, your supp^.rt is needed if 
this success is. to continue. 

George West has been appointed to a three 
year term to the Central Bucks Chamber of 
Commerce Board of Directors. His term be- 
gins in January. Mr. West was formally intro- 
duced to the board on December 18 at their

Dear Editors', 

All of us would like to see a nice warm day to 
thaw things out, but is this what the college "is 
waiting for before it decides to do anything about 
the main parking lot? Once a car manages to get in- 
to a space, the owner may as well erase all hopes of 
getting it out without a good deal of tire spinning 
and even a scrape or two in the paint job. 

Even venturing onto the parking lot on foot is 
dangerous due to the amount of ice that hasn't 
even been properly cindered or salted. After the 
first snowfall I could understand, somewhat, the 
parking lot was crowded and it is hard to plow with 
cars in the way. But I surely thought that after 
Christmas break, given all that time, the lot would 
be clear. Then again why should they clear it, no 
cars would use it during that time anyway. 

Now, however, after the most recent storm, it is 
even worse. Even the far end of the lot where no 
one but late commuters park is nothing but ice with 
snow on top. Can nothing be done to prevent the 
future fender benders from occurring due to the rot- 
ten conditions there? is the grounds crew sleeping 
on the job? 

As a car owner on campus, I have paid the fee to 
register my car so that I may park in the parking lot 
without worry of getting a ticket. But along with the 
right to park in the lot, 1 feel I have a right to see the 
lines between which to park. 

Tired of slipping 

Dear Editor, 

I'd like to bring to your attention and to the atten- 
tion of the entire student body an increasingly 
growing problem in the cafeteria. The dilemma we 
are posed with is the fact that their are a few select 
students who have been leaving the dining hall 
without taking their trays back. This action is offen- 
sive to others who must sit amidst the shambles that 
are left. Suppose the situation is turned around, 
how would you feel? Even worse, imagine having 
to clean it up. Well, the problem goes even deeper 
than this! 

As casual observers, my friends and I have notic- 
ed that the "majority" of these people are freshmen 
football players. That's right Mr. Wilson, football 
players. (I think it is important to note that Ytn a 
sophomore, but this letter is by no means bias, just 

So, hey guys, who are you trying to kid. It's 
neither funny nor cool to carry-on in such a childish 
fashion. What's worse is the fact that you're giving 
yourselves, the freshmen class, and the entire foot- 
ball team a bad name. Or is this how champions 
conduct themselves? As an athlete, I know too well 
that my coach wouldn't stand for such nonsense, 
and I would certainly look down upon anyone on 
my team who would behave in such a manner. 

This letter may not cure the problem at hand, but 
it should make more people realize what kind of 
students would do something so ignorant and then 
treat them as such. After all, carrying your tray back 
is a rather simple task that we should all be able to 

Mary Lou Work Sculpture Exhibit

Critics Choice 

Do Black Patent Leather 
Shoes Really Reflect Up? 

by Michael Jaskolka 

This has to be one of the most realistic and down 
to earth comedies that has arrived in Philadelphia in 
years. The show is currently playing at the Walnut 
Street Theater Most of the actors have held major 
roles in Broadway productions, and they do this 
show much justice. 

I was surprised to see alot of nuns and priests ar- 
riving at the theater. The show is good clean fun. 
Many unanswered questions are answered through- 
out the show in song, such as "Does God Love Lit- 
tle Fat Girls," "How Far is to Far." and "Do Black 
Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up." The ques- 
tion "How Is A Girl Related To A Wiffle Ball," is 
also answered. 

Those of you that have gone to a catholic school 
can relate to much of the humor, even those that 
haven't will still catch on. Most of the storyline is 
centered around Eddie, a real troublemaker; and 
Becky, a girl who is a little overweight and not too 
popular. This show is funny, but it doesn't put 
down the church at all, it just shows how silly some 
of it's traditional school rules are. The show will 
make you laugh as you are reminded of the good 
ole grade school days. 

The Walnut Street Theater is located on 9th and 
Walnut Street. From the school follow 611 south to 
Philadelphia, where it turns into Broad Street, and 
two blocks after City Hall is Walnut Street. Take a 
left on Walnut Street to 9th Street. Prices vary with 
night of performance and times, average price is 
about $15.00. It will be there till February 14, it 
would be a nice valentine present for your sweet- 
heart. "Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Re- 
flect Up," is a good show, and if this is true, do 
pearls reflect down? 

I'm going to be going to see the musical "Evita" 
sometime in February. I am opening the invitation 
up to you. If you would like to join me in watching 
"Evita" let me know so we can make travel arrange- 
ments and set a date. I can be reached by dropping 
me a line. Box 612, or come up to Goldman 226. If 
we get enough people we can get reduced rates. 
"Evita" will be playing at the Forrest Theater star- 
ting February 11. 

Other shows currently playing in Philadelphia in- 
clude "A Chorus Line" - Forrest Theater, "Shear 
Madness" — Burgundy Theater, and "Dear Daddy" 
— Zellebach Theater. I have gone to most of these 
already so if you have any questions let me know. 


May 17th to 21st — What do these dates mean? 
Well to 100 plus seniors it means BAHAMAS. That 
much awaited for senior trip will finally have arrived. 
It's hard to imagine the warm, sunny beaches dur- 
ing this frigid'weather, but they are there and just 
waiting for us! 

Just to wet your appetite and get you pysched for 
the great southern migration, here are a few high- 
lights to thaw your suntan lotion. For starters the 
beaches on the island are covered with the soft 
powdery sand that you dream about in tropic fan- 
tasies. Many of the beaches are fringed with palm 
trees and flowering shrubs, shelving gently into 
waters so clear you can watch your toes wiggle. 
The water provides a haven for snorklers and scuba 
divers to explore the underwater scenery. For those 
who love to eat (names withheld upon request!) this 
tropical paradise holds a world of dining experiences 
including European, Polynesian, Greek, Chinese, 
native Bahamian, and for you die-hards, American 
(i.e. McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Burger 
King, etc . . .). 

There is a variety of sightseeing opportunities 
available for tourists. Bay Street provides a shop- 
per's wonderland of shops, galleries, and restau- 
rants. Glass-bottom boat trips allow glimpses of 
underwater reefs and gardens. Other Bahama at- 
tractions include the Nassau Botanic Gardens 
which display tropical plantings, the straw market 
with its lively, colorful bazaar of handmade delights, 
the water tower that provides breathtaking views of 
a 216' waterfall, and much, much more. 

So seniors think Bahamas! You had better 
start watching those waistlines and wallets, stock up 
on the suntan lotion, and dig out those summer 
clothes because here we come! 


As you know, last semester was a big one for 
starting new clubs. Some of the new clubs started 
were the Landscape Nursery Club, the Ski Club, 
and the Newman Club. The first two are fairly self 
explanatory, but you may not know much about 
the Newman Club. 

The first Newman group was started in 1893, in 
memory of Cardinal John Henry newman who 
died in 1890. Cardinal Newman was born in Lon- 
don in 1801. He became a scholar and a preacher 
of the Church of England at Oxford University. In 
1846 Newman became a Catholic priest. One of his 
most famous lectures at Oxford was "The Idea of a 
University." made in 1852. Cardinal Newman is 
considered one of the great thinkers of the 1800's. 

The DVC Newman Club is one of some 1200 
Newman societies serving Colleges and Universities 
throughout the country. The Newman Club is a 
Catholic based organization, however, membership 
is open to ALL students of Del Val. The combined 
national membership of all Newman Clubs is over 
one and a half million students. 

So far. our Newman Club has gone Christmas 
Caroling at Pine Run Nursing home and sold 
Special Message Candy Canes. In the future we 
hope to sponsor a trip to Our Lady of Czestochowa 
Shrine, as well as a trip to Philly possibly including 
dinner. We will also be sponsoring retreats shortly. 

Remember that membership is open to all stu- 
dents. Our advisors are Dr. Stenson and Father 
Brouwers of St. Judes Church. Times and places 
for our meetings will be posted. Come on out and 
see what we are all about.

Mile Relay Makes History 

by Dwight Paige 

Before a crowd of some 5000+ spectators the 
Del Val mile relay team of mark Tankersley. Ed 
Rasbach. Chip Zerr. and Jeff Robinson made his- 
tory by bringing home third place medals from the 
Philadelphia Track Classic held in the Spectrum, 
Friday, January 22. 

In a meet which featured such big name track 
stars as Billy Olsen, American record holder in the 
pole vault, and Olympians Steve Riddick, Willie 
Gaulf , and John Gregorek, as well as Tony Dorden. 
Carlton Young, and John -Marshall, the Del Val 
track team made a name for itself by bringing home 
its highest honor to date. 

"It was a big step toward Delaware Valley be- 
coming nationally prominent in Division III track," 
beamed Coach Marty Stern. 

The race itself was as exciting as the results as 
Mark Tankersley (52.9) led off and got a good posi- 
tion for the second man Ed Rasbach (51.5) who 
closed up some of the gap between himself and the 
front runner from Delaware State. Rasbach handed 
to freshman standout Chip Zerr (52.9) who ran his 
gutsiest race of the year and passed a Catholic 
University runner on the inside with less than 20 
meters left before he handed to anchor man Jeff 
Robinson (51.1) who held off two strong bids by 
Catholic University's anchor man. The team ran 
3:28.5 for its best indoor time ever and finished 
third behind Delaware State and Georgetown. On 
a time comparison from another mile relay race the 
team also ran faster than Division III national 
champs Glassboro State (3:29.1). 

In other meet action Del Val hurdler Mark Tank- 
ersley lined up in the 60-yard hurdle race next to 
All-Conference Wide Receiver and former Olym- 
pian Willie Gault from Tennessee. Not fully re- 
covered from the mile relay, Tankersley hit the first 
hurdle and lost his balance. He did not finish the 

Ladies Roast Chestnut Hill 74-59 

Women's basketball made an impressive registra- 
tion day showing as Sandy Yerkes and Sherry Ogg 
combined for 42 points against Chestnut Hill Col- 
lege. Marcia Werner and captain Patti Rissinger 
added 10 and 8 points respectively. 

The Aggies were held back in the first half by 
some weak passing and poor offensive rebounding. 
Meanwhile. Chestnut Hill was incredibly strong 
from the foul line, so they stuck with the Aggies for 
a 30-30 halftime score. Del Val exploded in the 
second half, scoring 12 of the next 16 points. 
Strong second half rebounding from Sue Hartung 
helped extend the lead to 17 points. Coach Kathy 
Kravitz used all of her available players. The 
younger players showed poise and confidence as 
they took over the Aggie court in the final minutes. 

Other recent scores are: 


Coach Stern was extremely happy about every- 
one's performance. Said Stern. "Everyone ran a 
very smart race. I received many compliments from 
other coaches and officials about how impressive a 
showing Del Val made."

Next Home Game — Saturday, January 30 
vs. Cabrini, at 2:00 p.m. 


The Delaware Valley College Aggies managed to 
pull out a 71-69 double overtime victory on Satur- 
day over Juniata in the middle game of a three 
game homestand. In Saturday's thriller, the Aggies 
held off Juniata twice and won the game on a 18 
foot jump shot by freshman Adam Citko. In the first 
half of that game. Delaware Valley College sopho- 
more guard Jay Nichols was injured and he did not 
play the second half. Freshman Brad Leslie, his 
replacement, scored 13 second half points and his 
three overtime field goals kept Delaware Valley 
in the game. Sophomore Walt Weir of Delaware 
Valley College led all scorers with 20 points. 

Delaware Valley College Athletes 
Receive Conference Honors 

Eight Delaware Valley College athletes were 
named to the 1981 Middle Atlantic Conference 
Northern Division All-Conference team for their 
outstanding performances on the gridiron, the 
hockey field, and the cross country course. 

Al Applegate, held down a defensive tackle posi- 
tion for the Aggies. Applegate was a key player in 
the Aggie campaign to become Middle Atlantic 
Conference Northern division co-champions in 
1981. Besides his All-Conference honor, he was 
named to the Southern Division EC. AC. team. 

Jim Duncan, co-captained the 81 Aggie team. 
He is a repeat to the All-Conference team and was 
also named to the Southern Region E.C.A.C. 

The athletes honored were: 

Mark Tankersley — His achievements at the 
wide receiver position for the '81 season include: 
28 receptions for 819 yards, a school seasonal 
record; he also established a new record for one 
game yardage gaining 191 yards through the air. 

Ray Jenkins — His intensity coupled with his 
tenacity were the biggest factors contributing to his 

The other junior recipient, Earnest Meilly held 
down an offensive guard position. 

Freshman Bob Hudoka won conference honors 

for his consistent place kicking. Hudoka set a 
seasonal record for the Aggies kicking 10 field goals 
(also a personal high) . His finest moment came in 
the final game of the season (Susquehanna) when 
he provided the only points scored by the Aggies, 
three field goals. The win insured their 2nd con- 
secutive Northern Division Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference championship. Hudoka was named by the 
E.C.A.C. as "Rookie of the Year". 

The field hockey coaches recognized Diane 
Bradley. Bradley tallied 15 goals and 2 assists in 
twelve games. Besides leading the team in scoring, 
Bradley made things happen for the Aggies. 
Besides being named to the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference All-Conference team, Bradley received the 
"Outstanding Offensive Player" award and the 
"Most Valuable Player" award for the '81 season. 

Named by the cross country coaches was Middle 
Atlantic Conference champion Jim Parsons. Par- 
sons broke the home course record against Kutz- 
town by running the 5 mile course in 27:34. The 
old record was held by Haverford runner, Mike 
Sheely. Parsons placed 2nd in the N.C.A.A. Mid 
East regionals and represented the Middle Atlantic 
Conference in the national championships held at 
Kenosh, Wisconsin. 

50-0, 45-3 Says it all! 

byW.R. II 

The wrestling team opened its second season last 
Wednesday with two stunning wins over Kutztown 
State College and Scranton University. Del Val 
won 19 of the 20 bouts of the evening against op- 
ponents somewhat sluggish from the semester 
break. Tom Trumbauer, Tony Tarsi, Tony Novak, 
Carl Nebhut, Tom Zonay, and Paul Kehagias 
recorded pins for the Aggies. 

Junior Mark Sands and freshman Tom Zonay re- 
main undefeated, while the team boosted its record 
to 7-1. 

The team goes into action again tomorrow. 2:00 
at Haverford.

Sauna Makes Debut 

Photos bv Ralph Wahl 

Have you ever had the urge to try a sauna and swelter your life 
away? In Northern European countries, as well as in health clubs in 
the United States, saunas are a popular item. Now as part of the ef- 
fort to CTeate a total physical fitness program at DVC, the athletic 
department has acquired a genuine sauna. 

The sauna was recently installed in the men's locker room of the 
James Work gym. This may seem to be unfair to the women 
population of the College, but there is a valid reason for this. This 
location is convenient to reach and close to the showers. However, 
just by the fact that it is in the men's locker room does inhibit use of 
the sauna by women. 

Everyone is invited to use the sauna. It is presently controlled by 
Mr. Foley, one of the trainers, and the coaches. Coach Marshall is 
able to gain the most benefit for its use for his wrestlers. At present 
women as well as men must sign up for a time to use the sauna and 
follow the strict rules for its use. 

At first it will be a novelty, and time will be needed to determine 
the true response. After this, a working schedule can be set up. In 
the future a desk will be placed back by the sauna. A student from 
the work-study program will then be assigned to the desk, informing 
the users the proper way to operate the sauna, watching to make 
sure that it is safe and keeping the schedule for its use. 

Mr. Wilson stated that in an effort to expand and create more of a 
total physical fitness program, they have been looking for a way to 
put in a sauna. The opportunity arose for the department to pur- 
chase this sauna at a very good price — 20% of the price of a new 
one. > 

Other recent changes in the Phys Ed department include offering 
a CPR course and an aerobics class. Both of these classes have been 
favorably received. Also, new equipment has been added to the 
weight room. 

Everyone is invited to take advantage of the sauna. Sign- 
ing up for its use can be done in the training room. So grab 
a friend, grab a towel and check it out. This could be the 
sweating start of a new way to feci great! ^y Martha Gehnnger

Nearly Everybody Reads 
Ram Pages 

Wc at Ram Pages are sorry to see the loss of 
Philadelphia's second largest newspaper and one of 
the United States' oldest. To take up the slack, Ram 
Pages could expand to cover the Philadelphia area. 
Then we could say "Nearly Everybody Reads Ram 
Pages." We would need good people who could 
carry on their business in and out of the cloth sack. 
The College would remain a valuable asset to the 
newspaper. Business majors would have secure local 
jobs, and our columnists would come from our 
various majors. Commuters would make up our rov- 
ing reporter department. Our athletes would get top 
billing over the pros and our entertainment and 
people in the news columns would receive top billing. 
Just imagine your name or your picture on this new 
Philadelphia paper. It might make headlines! 

A revised Student Government Constitution is in 
the making, thanks to the work of student govern- 
ment and especially Toni Hoelper and Mr. Tasker. 
A revision of certain articjes in the Constitution was 
brought about by the need for further clarification of 
certain words, policies, articles, and government 
regulations which were vague and/or outdated. 
What this will mean to the students after the Con- 
stitution's acceptance is, students that will be runn- 
ing for a class or government office will have defin- 
ed guidelines regarding their functions and how the 
government as a whole should function in a more 
agreeable manner. At the meeting of February 2nd, 
the ratification process began. Each article is con- 
firmed at a time with questionable articles set aside 
until all the agreed articles are sanctioned. Due to 
the length of the meeting the Constitution will be 
resolved and endorsed in the upcoming meeting. Irr 
any event, students will see and vote on the new 
Constitution in March.

Student Poll 

Why Are There No Blue M&M's? 

1. Because. 

2. Because to be blue there must be a cut off of 
the supply of oxygen turning the red ones, of 
which there aren't any, blue. Since there are no 
red ones there can be no blue ones. 

3. Did you ever see a happy M&M? 

4. Would you eat a blue M&M? 

5. Long ago the Hershey Company started 
manufacturing female M&M's. But before too 
long, due to chronic complaints of discrimina- 
tion, came the birth of the male M&M's you 

■ know the one with the nuts. 

Each M&M was given a color to designate 
the creatures of the universe: 

Dark Brown — for the Negroes 
Tan — for the Caucasions 
Green — for the Martians 

Red — for the Indians 

Yellow — for the Chinese 

Orange — for the Japanese 

Obviously there are no blue M&M's because 

you have yet to discover the creature far 

beneath the deep blue sea. But beware, for the 

next M&M that melts in your hand and not in 

your mouth will be blue. 

In Waiting, 
The Blue M&M 

6. Because M&M's can't suffocate. 

7. There are no blue M&M's because they are 
usually kept in a warm place. 

8. The answer is very simple. The green's make 
one homey; the red are more potent (hence 
their discontinuation); therefore the blue are so 
active they make one impotent within a few 
weeks. Now then, who would buy such a pro- 
duct? Since no one would buy them the com- 
pany would soon go bankrupt. This would put 
a dent in the already ruined economy. There- 
fore Congress proclaimed that there shall never 
be any blue M&M's. 

9. So they don't get mixed up with the grapes in 

the refrigerator. , , _

Dear Aggie, 

Dear Readers, 

I'm back again with the best advice this side of 
Doylestown. If you have a problem write into Box 
1086 and I'll be sure to answer your questions with 
the best suggestions I can. Hey everyone, have a 
wonderful Spring semester. 


Dear Aggie, 

I've been friends with this person since the se- 
cond half of freshman year (we are both seniors 
now,) and now when we should be having fun our 
last semester all we seem to do is annoy one anoth- 
er. I've tried not bothering her and other times I try 
to be around alot. Do you have any suggestions 
that may get us on the right track? 

Friendship refinder 

Dear Friendship, 

If she means alot to you as a friend I believe a 
good heart to heart talk is needed. Try to find out 
together why such a good friendship has turned 
sour. You may be making something large out of 
nothing. If she doesn't want to talk push her a little 
because a true friendship should be everlasting. 

Happy talking, Aggie 

Aggie's Helpful Hint for the Semester: 

If your frame of mind is right, you'll work quickly, 
easily, and more efficiently. So go with your moods 
— not against them! 

Have a problem? Write Dear Aggie, P.O. Box 1086

The Kinks 
Give The People What They Want 

This record has been getting very favorable 
reviews since its release late last year. This critic was 
not so impressed. In fact after preparing for the 
best, this record was a disappointment. The Kinks 
have very long been one of the foremost social crit- 
ics in rock music. They have not let up here. The 
themes of this collection are current and significant. 
The lyrics are equally impressive, but that is only 
half the story. 

The producing is awful. The characteristic sear- 
ing guitars that have brought the Kinks to the top 
are muted in the background. The background vo- 
cals are inconsistent and seem to fade in and out. 
This may be intentional, but it is not pleasant. Only 
the title song comes close to replicating the punch 
of One For The Road and earlier studio albums. 

Most of these songs have great potential. They 
will probably raise the roof someday when perform- 
ed in concert. But these veterans should know that 
it is only what's up front that counts. Give The Peo- 
ple What They Want is only a teasing suggestion of 
what the Kinks have the capacity of producing.

Taps starring George C. Scott and Timothy Hut- 
ton is the story of a rebellion. Not your typical adult- 
youth conflict. No — this was a different problem. 
This was a story of respect, honor, and devotion. 

The setting takes place at the local military 
academy at Valley Forge. George C. Scott plays an 
aging general who is commander and chief of the 
academy. Timothy Hutton portrays the newly in- 
stalled cadet major. The plot evolves around Hut- 
ton's respect for the experienced and battle-weary 
general. Through a series of bizarre events, in- 
cluding the eventual closing of the academy, Hutton 
and his cadets seize the institution and its arsenal of 
automatic weapons and ammunition. They hope to 
fight for the academy and its long history of tradi- 
tion, prestige, and honor. Using the tactics and 
maneuvers drilled into them, they set out to under- 
take this task. In doing so the cadets develop a 
sense of rebellion. But unlike many acts of aggres- 
sion toward society, these cadets were iruly rebels 
with a cause. Many profound statements and judge- 
ments are expanded upon, giving the moviegoer 
something to reflect on later. 

Taps proved to be another tv^pe of those love- 
hate movies. The viewer found himself engrossed 
and supportive of the cadets motives, and their 
every set back left the viewer frustrated. But the 
movie definitely has a meaning, in fact several. 
Honor is an import element as is the discipline 
shown by the cadets. This is not a joyful movie and 
the moviegoer will find himself coming up short 
changed if he expects anything else. But for an 
intense, well-developed drama, Taps is a good bet.

out did a great job using their own records and

The Golden Lights Restaurant 

by Mike Jaskolka 

Need a change in your steak and hamburger life? 
Well how about Chinese food? I'v^ been looking for 
a good Chinese restaurant in the area, so when I 
finished my meal I don't develop a Sodium Gluta- 
mate (Flavor Enhancer) headache. The Golden 
Lights Restaurant offers that change of pace by of- 
fering you Chinese food prepared in three different 
styles of Chinese cooking: Cantoneze, Szechuan, 
and Polynesian. Each style has its own distinct taste 
and method of preparation . 

Most meals on the menu are a la carte, but some 
are offered In a combination style, so you can try 
different Chinese dishes. I've visited this restaurant 
on two seperate occasions, and I tried the combina- 
tion and a la carte dinners. My first selection was 
the Shrimp Chow Mein Combination Dinner (5.25). 
The meal included Wonton soup, an egg roll, fried 
rice, and choice of dessert (ice cream, jello, or pine- 
apple) . My next visit I went Polynesian and had the 
Hawaiian Duck ($7.95). Fresh duckling, steamed 
with spices and herbs, boned and pressed prepared 
with pea pods, lychees, and pineapple served in 
exotic sauce. It was a sheer delight. Accompanying 
each meal is Chinese chips with hot mustard and 
sweet and sour dip, hot Chinese tea, and a fortune 

Some other dishes that caught my eye: Pepper 
Steak (5.00), Moo Goo Gai Pan (5.50). Almond 
Gai Ding (5.65) - a chicken dish, and Roast Pork 
with Bok Toy (5.50). The menu reads like a book, 
and there are many selections to choose from, if 
they are as good as the meals I had you will enjoy 
this place. 

The restaurant is decorated in an Oriental fashion 
with bright colors and Chinese lanterns adorning 
the walls. The waiters are friendly, but a little slow 
in coming to your order. Your wallet won't take a 
beating either, two can eat for under $15.00 in- 
cluding tax and tip. The prices are more reasonable 
for the portions you get. You'll walk out of The 
Golden Lights very satisfied. So warm up your 
chopsticks and treat yourself and that someone 
special to a good meal. Valentine's Day is just 
around the corner, and this would be a nice treat 
for your sweetheart. 

To get to The Golden Lights Restaurant from the 
college follow 611 south for 9 miles and the 
restaurant is on the left hand side of the road just 
before the turnpike entrance. No reservations are 
required, and the dress is casual. They also have 
take out service. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. 
on weekdays, Saturday till midnight, and Sunday 
noon to 10:30 p.m. 

If you need some ideas for dining out for a spe- 
cial occasion or juSt to go out with the gang let me 
know and I can recommend a few good places, you 
can reach me through the Ram Pages post office 
box, or my own 612, or come on up to Goldman 
226, and I'll be' glad to help you out.

On Saturday the team traveled to Haverford and bunny-hopped through a perfect 60-0 match. 
Sophomore Tony Barillo.made his debut by adding a pin at the 126 lb. weight class. Saturday's team 
was composed entirely of underclassmen so these results should be an indication of what to expect for 
next year's season. Coach Bob Marshall is pleasantly surprised with the teams recent performances. He 
adds that all 10 Del Val wrestlers are strong contenders for M.A.C. individual championships. His big- 
gest concern is that the team keep up its momentum through the M.A.C. conference tournament later 
this month. 

Del Val wrestling is establishing itself as a legend in its own time as the Aggies smashed two more op- 
ponents last week, boosting the team record to 9-1. In the ten matches team scores have averaged 39 
for Del Val and a low 5 points for the opponent. 

Susquehanna barely escaped the shutout-hungry jaws of the Aggie machine by pulling out a shaky 
2-0 victory in the heavyweight bout. Del Val had already racked up 44 points in the other nine bouts so 
the team settled for the 44-3 win, Tony Novak. Troy Marshall, Greg Peltz, and Tom Zonay all had pins, 
while co-captain Bruce Sapjrajh came out on top of an outstanding bout against a tough opponent. 

But first the wrestlers intent to finish this season in style on their home mat. This week Del Val faces 
tough Elizabethtown, Wednesday at 7:00 in the James Work Gym. On Saturday Del Val finishes its 
dual meet season hosting a trimeet with Messiah College and Western Maryland. This match will be the 
last home appearance of senior Tony Novak. Tony has held the 134 lb. spot for four years while 
compiling a 40 win and 17 loss record. 

Captains Carl Nebhut and Bruce Stanjrajh will then be leading the team in gearing up for the M.A.C. 
finals, February 19 and 20 at Swarthmore College. 


The Aggies of Delaware Valley College faced two 
Middle Atlantic Conference opponents on the road 
last week and came home without a victory. On 
Wednesday night, the Aggies became another Divi- 
sion 111 victim as thf nationally ranked Scranton 
Royals coasted to a 108-69 victory. Without the 
services of sophomore guard Jay Nichols, the Aggies 
were paced by a career high 29 points from freshman 
Adam Citgo. 

On Saturday night, the Wilkes Colonels defeated 
Delaware Valley College 80-63. The Aggies fell 
behind 38-21 at the half and then played Wilkes 
even in the second half. Sophomore Jay Nichols, 
from Washington D.C.. tallied 14 and senior Mark 
Tymes tossed in 12 points for the Aggies. 

Jay Nichols is ranked 18th nationally in Division III 
scoring, averaging 20.9 points per game. In Middle 
Atlantic Conference games he is averaging 18.3 
points per game, shooting 56.2% from the floor. 

Jay; Nichols 
ranked 18th 
with 20. 9 
points per 

On Tuesday, January 26th, the Lady Aggies of 
Delaware Valley College traveled to Muhlenberg 
College for a M.A.C. contest. The Aggies, coming 
off two previous losses to Penn St. Ogontz and 
Albright, finally got back on the winning streak and 
beat the Muhls 75-68. The Aggies had four double 
figure scorers. Leading the way was Sue Hartung 
with 22 points. Patti Rissinger had 16, Sherry Ogg 
15, and Marcia Werner 12 points. 

On Thursday, January 28th the Lady Aggies took 
on Cedar Crest College. Sandy Yerkes missed the 
game with a knee injury and Sue Hartung saw 
limited action because of ankle problems. Even 
without these two starters, the Aggies pulled out the 
win 58-48. Scoring for the Aggies were Sherry Ogg 
with 18 and Donna Cassano with 10 points. 

The Aggies' winning ways came to a hi'lt on 
Saturday when they faced a tough Cabrini College 
team. The Aggies looked "sick" as they had many 
costly turnovers and just couldn't seem to get the 
ball in the basket. It was the first real blowout of the 
year for the Aggies who lost the game 67-42. Patti 
Rissinger and Sherry Ogg had 13 and 12 points

The Ram Pages welcomes the opinions of 
its readers and urges all members of the 
College to participate in this open exchange 
of ideas. For letters to appear in Friday's 
issue, all letters should be signed and 
deposited in the Ram Pages. P.O. Box 988 no 
later than Monday morning. Ram Pages 
reserves the right to edit all submitted 
material. A writer's anonymity will be 
honored if it is requested. 

Dear Editors', 

I am submitting this letter to the Ram Pages to 
complain about the students who do not have the 
common decency to clean themselves up before 
entering the dining hall. By this 1 am referring to the 
students who work on the farms and come to the 
dining hall directly from work. I know for a fact that 
the students who work at the dairy get off work at 
6:00 p.m. I also know that the cafeteria closes at 
6:30. They don't get much time to shower, but that 
doesn't mean that we innocent bystanders have to 
sit down for a meal, and suddenly catch the stench 
of manure. It really doesn't make the food taste any 
better. Last week a letter appeared about freshman 
football players who leave their trays at their tables. 
Well, if you think cleaning up after someone else is 
bad. then you have not sat next to someone who 
smells as though they've been rolling in manure all 
day. The Delaware Valley College Student Hand- 
book says. "Students shall be dressed presentably 
when attending College functions, classes, and 
MEALS." This is not what 1 would consider presen- 
table. 1 don't think that their parents would allow 
them to eat at home in that condition, and I don't 
think that they should be allowed to in our "home". 
I think that the administration should look into this 

Dear Editors', 

As a commuter 1 would like to offer the following 
suggestions for improvements. 

The policy concerning the parking of sub-compact 
cars in the lower part of the parking lot should be 
enforced. 1 am tired of parking my sub-compact car 
there only to have a larger car and sometimes even 
a truck park beside me and dent my doors and 
make it difficult to get out of the space. 

Trash and especially broken glass are a nuisance 
"in the parking lot. Glass causes flat tires, and as a 
student I would find it difficult to come up with suffi- 
cient funds to replace them. There should be suffi- 
cient trash receptacles for use in the parking lot. 

With the cold weather and wind which are 
prevalent at this time of year it becomes apparent 
that something should be done to eliminate some of 
the wind, A possible suggestion for deterring this 
unbearable wind is to plant a wind break of trees 
near the railroad tracks. Although it will take many 
years for the trees to reach sufficient size, necessary 
steps should be taken to insure this for the future.

How do I love me . . . 

by Bud Hulshizer 

How do I love me? Let me count the many 

I love me to the depth and breadth and height 

your soul can withstand, when feeling 

out of sight. 
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace 
1 love me to the level of all day's 
Most loud need, by moon and fog-light. 
I love me slavishly, as women strive for 

I love me purely, as you turn with Praise. 
I love me with the passion put to descise 
In my new griefs, and with hoodlum's faith. 
I love me with love you seemed to lose 
With your lost saints — I love me with the 

smelly breath, 
smiles, tears, of all your lifel — and, if God 

You shall but love me better after my death. 


Security Force 

There are two sides to every story — the right 
side and the wrong. This can be a great problem 
depending on the incident. Take for example the 
incident which occured on the evening of February 
1, 1982 in Berkowitz Hall. A resident on the se- 
cond floor was studying at her desk, only to find her 
window the object of someone's shooting practice. 
As one shot, possibly from an air gun. pierced 
through the window, the startled shaken resident 
fled from her desk in search of safety. The resident 
then did what she presumed to be the best action 
and called Security. 

After she related the details to the guard, he filed 
the following report — three males were seen at the 
window. It is rumored that the account was found 
humorous. Unfortunately, the resident didn't ap- 
preciate this, or the neat round hole in her window. 

Another account happened on the night of Feb- 
ruary 3. 1982. After seeing objects being thrown 
from a window of Elson Hall, a guard walked into 
the hall and called Headquarters. He made the 
report to say that no R.A.'s were available (un- 
known to him one was standing directly behind 
him) and that there were objects being thrown from 
a window by mate partiers. The report to Security 
and to the Resident's Life Office read so unclearly 
but reported the wrong room. As a result of this 
confused report no action was able to be taken. 

This is our Security in action. And they want us 
to respect them? They do have a job to perform, 
which isn't always pleasant or appreciated, but sim- 
ple tasks of accurately reporting incidents and find- 
ing R.A.'s should be basic skills of a security force. 
Maybe we should work on improving these skills, 
and perhaps we could make these skills prerequi- 
sites for hiring. Aftetall. is this not an institute for 
higher learning?

The tropical fish club of Delaware Valley College 
came into full swing this year with the participation 
of 17 members, all in good standing The fish room 
is located in the Lasker basement. There are almost 
35 beautifully displayed aquariums arranged on the 
shelves along the walls of the room. The object of 
the club is to promote interest in tropical and some 
domestic fish as a hobby with emphasis on breeding 
and selection behavior, if anyone is interested in 
seeing the room, a good time to stop down would 
usually be between classes, as most members stop 
down at this time to feed the fish. If nobody is there 
just take a peek in from the window, in the door that 
was installed just recently. If anyone has any ques- 
tions about the club, please contact Domonic Cen- 
tonze in Work 105.

Aggies Split Includes 
Upset of Scranton 

The Aggies of Delaware Valley College upset na- 
tionally ranked Royals of Scranton University last 
Wednesday night by a score of 41-40. Just a week 
before the Royals defeated Delaware Valley 108-67 
in another of their Division III runaways. 

The Aggies played deliberate basketball and the 
score at the half was 23-22 in favor of the Royals. 
The Royals opened the second half with two con- 
secutive baskets but the Aggies clawed back to trail 
by one with over two minutes remaining. A blocked 
shot gave the Aggies the ball out of bounds with 4 
seconds remaining. Jay Nichols, despite being 

double -teamed, pounded a desperation 30 foot 
shot off the glass for the 41-40 Aggie victory. 

Nichols, the sophomore guard led all scorers with 
18 points while freshman Adam Citko (Philadel- 
phia, Pa.) added 7. 

On Saturday 2/6, the Aggies travelled to Wash- 
ington College and met a hot shooting Shoremen 
team that jumped out to a 55-23 halftime lead. The 
pace continued in the second half as Washington 
won 97-63. Jay Nichols tallied 22 points and soph- 
omore Walt Weir added 17 points in the losing 

The Aggies finish the 1982 campaign with two 
league games. They host Kings on Saturday night 
and travel to Lycoming next Wednesday. 

Girl's Basketball 

The Lady Aggies got hit by some tough competi- 
tion last week. On Tuesday. February 2 they travel- 
ed to Moravian College for an evenly matched 1st 
half, but the 2nd half proved to be too much for the 
Aggies. Final score 71-60. Sherry Ogg led the way 
with 20 points. Pat Rissinger had 13. Sandy Yerkes 
12, and freshman Denise Leonarski had 11 to 
round out the double figure scoring. 

Wednesday February 3 the Aggies hosted the 
Scrnaton Royals in a women's - men's double- 
header in the James Work Gym. The Aggies came 
out hustling and the 1st half was exciting as the Ag- 
gies press caused some costly turnovers. At the end 
of the half, Del Val was up by a score of 34-30. The 
second half was a totally different game. This time it 
was Scranton who was determined to come out on 

top. Scranton scored 63 pts. in the 20 minute half 
and blew out the Lady Aggies 93-60. Sherry Ogg 
and Pat Rissinger led the way with 12 pts. each. 
Sandy Yerkes had 11 and Denise Leonarski had 

Friday night the Aggies again came up against a 
rough team. Spring Garden. They ran the Aggies 
to death on their constant fast breaks. About the 
only bright spot for the Aggies was sophomore San- 
dy Yerkes who came off the bench to score 15 pts. 
She was the only Aggie to hit double figures. Laura 
Stephenson also came off the bench to play a good 
inside game and hit for 6 pts. 

Upcoming home games: Tonight, Western Mary- 
land, 7:00 p.m. Wednesday. February 17, Widener,

Co-captain Carl Nebhut (167), and Gregory 
Peltz (177). scored two pins each for Delaware 
Valley College as the Aggie matmen extended their 
win streak to 7 and boosted their overall record to 
12-1. The action occurred Saturday 2/6 at Mora- 
vian College. The grapplers defeated Moravian 
46-6 and Muhlenberg 43-6. 

Both Nebhut and Peltz recorded first period pins. 
Nebhut's falls came at the 1:00 min. mark against 
Moravian's Kevin Clark and the 1:55 mark against 
Muhlenberg's Steve Cornevale. Peltz's pins were 
unique as both were recorded 42 seconds into the 

Sophomore Mark Sands (150). Pcrkasie. Pa., 
remains undefeated as he scored a 13-5 decision 
over Greyhound Tom Baldwin. His Muhlenberg 
win was by a forfeit. Sands' record to date is 13-0. 

The Aggie matmen will be completing their sea- 
sonal schedule this week as they host Western 
Maryland/Messiah Saturday at 2:00 P.M. 

Track Team Places Third 

by Dwight Paige 

The Del Val track team traveled to Lehigh 
University's Philip Rauch Field House January 30. 
to face competition from Lehigh, East Stroudsburg. 
Bloomsburg, and Cheyney State. 

The team was paced by first place finishes from 
Mark Tankersley, Phil Luccarelli, and Jeff Robin- 
son. Hurdler Mark Tankersley showed his usual 
All-American form, having no trouble winning the 
60-yard hurdles (7.6). The Aggies top sprinter, Phil 
Luccarelli, led a tough field from the start and was 
victorious in the 60-yard dash (6.5). 

The highlight of the meet for DVC was the stunning 
finish to a record breaking effort by Jeff Robinsf:>n in 
the 880-yard run. With less than 100 yards to go Rob- 
inson trailed East Stroudsburg's Brian McClanahan by 
10-15 yards. McClanahan, tiring from the blistering 
pace he had set early on, couldn't answer the late 
challenge Robinson offered. Rounding the final turn 
Robinson blew past and blazed down the final straight- 
away breaking the tape in 1:57.9 for a new record. 

Other noteable performances were freshman 
Brandon Newell's 2nd in the triple jump. (45' 
8V2") . Jim Parsons, enroute to his personal best in 
the 3 mile, placed 3rd with a time of 14:56.0 
Sophomore highjumper Bruce Knipe provided a 
surprise showing, not with his usual good perfor- 
mance in the high jump (5th. 6'4") but with his 
debut as a sprinter in the 60-yard dash (6.6). Knipe 
captured 3rd place in the dash. 

Also placing in the meet was Ed Rasbach (4th, 
1:16) and Jim Loughran (5th. 1:17.8) in the 600. 
Jim Eichhorn (5th. 52.5) in the 440. Rich Weaver 
(5th, 9:47.5) in the 2 mile. 
Final results of the meet were: 
Lehigh - 125 
ESSC - 69 
Del Val - 40 
Cheyney State — 26 
Bloomsburg — 14 
On Friday February 5th the track team traveled 
to East Stroudsburg State College for the Red and 
Black Open and brought home the rriost medals 
ever by a Del Val track team for an indoor meet. 

Phil Luccarelli - 2nd - 60 yd. (6.5) 
Jeff Robinson - 2nd - 880 yd. (2:02) 
Rich Weaver - 3rd - Mile (4:24) 
Jeff Sharp - 3rd - Shot (41' 10") 
Jim Eichhorn - 3rd - 440 yd. (53.0) 


by Dwight Paige 

On February 7, select members of the track team 
traveled to Princeton University's prestigious Prince- 
ton Relays. The mile relay team of Mark Tankersley. 
Jim Eichhorn. Ed Rasbach. and Jeff Robinson set a 
new mark with a time of 3:23.89. 

Mark Tankersley led off with a 52.1 which kept 
Del Val right in the pack, before handing young 
freshman Jimmy Eichhorn who ran an aggressive 
51.6. Then in what turned out to be the deciding 
leg of the whole race. Junior Ed Rasbach lit up the 
track with a 50.1 putting Del Val in the lead. An- 
chor man Jeff Robinson (49.8) held the lead to 
finish in record time. Del Val beat Bucknell, Tren- 
ton State. Princeton, and St. Peters in their heat. 

Other competitors in the meet were Brandon 
Newell in the triple jump. Phil Luccarelli in the 55 
meters, Mark Tankersley in the 55 meter high 
hurdles and a distance medley relay team of Jeff 
Robinson, Ed Rasbach. Jim Parsons, and Rich 

Next week the track team travels to the University 
of Delaware for the Delaware Open.

Concert Review: BACKSTREETS 

The Gymnasium was really rockin' on the night of February 18 as 
Backstreets performed to the beat of The Boss" Bruce Springsteen to 
a highly energetic crowd. The group played two spectacular sets PLUS 
a super half hour encore. Most of their selections were Bruce's besti

Two Hearts Are Better Than One 

Another number performed by Backstreets was written by Southslde 
Johnny and the Asbury Jukes; "We're having a party" which was one of 
the better audience participation numbers. 

This concert was, by all means, a tremendous SUCCESS. Many 
college students, townspeople, and local area teenagers had a blast 
singing, dancing, and partying to the Boss Beat! 



The College has made a commitment to con- 
struct a new student center complex. An architec- 
tural firm and construction manager have been 
contacted and engineering and construction plans 
are now being implemented. Student center project 
costs are expected to be above the $3 million mark 
and initial financing arrangements have been ob- 
tained with the cooperation of the Pennsylvania 
Higher Education Facilities Authority. 

The Center will consist of a contemporary de- 
sign, two-story building to be located on the main 
part of the campus, adjacent to the James Work 
Gymnasium and fronting on Route 202. 

The Student Center is designed as a multi-purpose 
facility serving the College community and will pro- 
vide support services for all academic and student 

Although plans have not been finalized, it is likely 
that the new center will include most of the following: 

• multi-purpose room for concerts, dances, lec- 
tures, community programs 

• snack bar and dining area with operating 
hours designed to accommodate off-campus 
and resident student schedules 

• student offices, including Student Govern- 

ment, newspaper and student life services 
book and student stores 
post office for all campus mail services 
game room to accommodate pool tables, pin 
ball, vending machines, and other recrea- 
tional activities 

lounge area to provide ample space and fur- 
nishings for a quiet environment conducive to 
studying, low conversation and relaxation 
between classes 

placement office which includes a conference 
room and display area for literature 
campus radio station 
student publications and printing office 
alumni and faculty room and reception - 
area designed to accommodate alumni meet- 
ings, small groups and community service

NIGHT TIME SOAPS Word Search #3 

by Michael Farbotnik 

The "Love In the Afternoon" that millions of 
Americans have come to know and love in such 
low budget, poorly-acted shows like "All My Chil- 
dren," "Ryan's Hope," and "General Hospital" has 
taken on a whole new look that might more appro- 
priately be called "Love in the After Prime time". 

The first such show, "Dallas," has shown that 
what people really want and what brings in the rat- 
ings isn't the family-style entertainment but adult 
soap operas In the late night hours. J.R.'s scheming 
has spawned a whole new line of night time soaps, 
each with its own heros, heroines, villains, and vix- 
ens. Dallas still leads in the villain department with 
the ever despicable J.R. Ewing who will stop at 
nothing to gain control of the Ewing oil empire. 

Flamingo Road and Knots Landing don't thrill 
me too awfully much because it seems that 
everybody is a villain. The major draw of these 
shows seems to be the conglomeration of beauties 
who seduce any man with power or money. 

That brings me to my favorite, "Dynasty". For 
those of you who aren't familiar with Dynasty, let 
me recap the last few episodes: Blake Carrington, 
who has just returned from Italy where he met his 
former wife Alexis, who had arranged for him to 
meet Rashid Amed, the leader of a coup in a mid- 
eastern country where six of Blake's oil tankers had 
been seized, has gotten his tankers back, but he 
didn't realize that Alexis Is actually plotting to get rid 
of Krystal, Blake's present wife, and remarry him, 
and that Krystal found out about the affair that 
Blake and Alexis had while in Italy. Blake walked In 
to work to find out from his son-in-law Jeff Colby, 
that Fallon, Blake's daughter from his previous 
marriage, who Is really a product of an affair be- 
tween Alexis and Blake's lawyer and who married 
Jeff so that Jeff's uncle, Cecil Colby, would bail out 
Blake financially, Is going to have an abortion. 
Fallon couldn't go through with the abortion but she 
still wants a divorce because she want to marry 
Blake's physician. Dr. Tosconni, with whom she 
had an affair. However, Dr. Tosconni wants Krystal 
and Is pressing her to get a divorce. Meanwhile, 
Blake's former homosexual son, Steve, has fallen 
in love with and married Krystal's niece, Sammy Jo 
who has some scheme up her sleeve to be revealed 
at a later date. 

Confused? So am 1, and 1 watch it every week! 


In talking with students about the class trip, I find 
there are some misunderstandings concerning it. I 
hope this letter will clarify these. 

The first item concerns the last payment which is 
due on March 2. This payment must be made on 
time. If you fail to make It, you will be subject to a 
70% penalty of monies already paid and will be 
removed from the list of those going on the trip. We 
have no other alternative. The travel agent must 
have our payment in full shortly thereafter to con- 
firm our reservations. There is no grace period. 
Please see me if you anticipate any problem In 
making this deadline. If prior arrangements are not 
or cannot be made, we must drop you from the list 
and subject you to the above mentioned penalty. 
Don't act surprised as this was all spelled out to you 
in previous class meetings. The class officers and 
trip committee are stiN working to come up with a 
figure on how much will be contributed to each 
senior in good standing. Obviously, you will know 
this amount by March 2. 

The trip Is still open to anyone wishing to go and 
the price has not gone up. In years past you may 
have heard of people deciding to go in April and 
May and having no problems. Since we are way 
over our 100 person minimum, it will not be the 
case this year. March 2 is the last day to join In. 

I realize the tone of this letter Is somewhat strong 
but 1 think you can understand why. The trip com- 
mittee and trip treasurer, Ann Buickus, have been 
working hard to organize this trip and do everything 
else that goes with it. We need your cooperation to 
smoothly finish the job on March 2. If you have any 
problems or questions, please see me as soon as

Dear Aggie, 

Dear Aggie, 

Why don't the guys on this campus keep their 
mouths shut? I am a freshman and was Involved 
with a guy all last semester, but we aren't together 
anymore. Now, all I hear is terrible rumors about 
myself and our relationship. I know that he spread 
them and it hurts. I'm really interested In someone 
else now, but I'm afraid he's heard these rumors 
too, and won't ask me out. What should 1 do? 


Humbled and Hurt 

Dear H and H, 

When someone gets hurt they lash back In many 
ways — one of them Is the rumor. You should 
know within yourself that the rumors aren't true 
and you should not let something false bother you. 
What you think about yourself matters most. As for 
the other guy, once he gets to know you he will see 
just how false the rumors are (if he's heard them) .

Here's a place I go to when I have a very special 
date or a special day to celebrate. Havana's Is a 
restaurant some of you may remember as a place I 
did try last year, and I was very impressed with the 
food. An occasion arose by which 1 had the chance 
to revisit Havana's, and again it Impressed me. 

Since my last visit a few specials have been add- 
ed to the menu, but most of the prices haven't 
changed. 1 had the Broccoli and Fontlna Lasanga 
($6.50), and with each bite my taste buds were sur- 
rounded with a new experience of flavor; it was 
delicious. My date enjoyed the Chicken Breast 
Sauteed with rosemary, garlic, and white wine 
($7.50). Other menu Items include Flounder stuff- 
ed with oriental vegetables ($7.50), Whole Wheat 
Shells stuffed with spinach and riccotta (5.50), and 
Jumbo Shrimp Tempura (9.50) . The prices Include 
only the entrees; salad (2.00) and vegetable 
(prices vary) are extra. A complete meal for two 
shouldn't exceed $30.00, Including tip A must at 
Havana's Is the Strawberry Daiquiri; It's the best in 
Bucks County. Most of their drinks are exotic: 
Xanadu (tequila, green creme-de-menthe, and 
lemon juice) or Kiss in the Dark (gin, cherry brandy, 
dry vermouth). 

Dress is casual, but if you want to get dressed up, 
feel free to do so. Havana's has a very relaxing at- 
mosphere, and you are not rushed through your 
meal or the evening. Reservations are not needed. 
They have music nightly, mostly jazz, so get there 
before 6:30 to get a good seat. Havana's has lunch 
and dinner from noon until midnight, and snacks 
until 1 a.m. 

To get to Havana's from th^ college, take 202 
south to 179, which goes into New Hope. In New 
Hope go to the light and make a right on Main 
Street. Havana's Is about 3V2 blocks from the light. 
To find out what kind of entertainment they have, 
call ahead, 862-9897.

Joan Jett & the Blackhearts 
/ Love Rock-n-RoU 

The distinguishable sound of the new Joan Jett 
can lately be picked out of the heterogenous echo 
of almost any dorm hallway. Her wide appeal 
begins with blatantly sirnple musical construction. 
The attraction builds on lyrics that could be retltled 
"Anthem of Hedonism" and is topped off with the 
physical and vocal sensuality of Miss Joan Jett 
herself. These virtues are not quite enough to carry 
the album after the initial Infatuation wears off. 

The tough look is awkwardly faked In songs like 
"Love is Pain". The chains and black leather image 
Is betrayed by the delicate sensitivity of many of the 
songs Including a revision of Tom James' "Crimson 
and Clover". 

"Little Drummer Boy" (that's right the Christmas 
carol) closes the album. Joan Jett disregards the 
original context of the song with ghetto-Spanisb 
emphasis on the single line "When we come . . .". 
Raunchy as It may seem, this song has recently 
become the album's third successful single. 

Despite lyrical paths to the contrary Joan Jett is 
apparently very concerned with her reputation. So 
concerned, in fact, that she forgets the purpose of 
music as an art form Is honest expression. She is 
marketing an image, not an art. Joan would be well 
advised to pack away her skintight leathers and go 
back to the basic expressions of her earlier 

The best way 1 can summarize the style of / L^ve 
Rockn-Roll is to say it Is a cheap imitation of Pat 
Benatar with some added punk thrown in. The 
vocals, as well as the Instrumentation, sound amaz- 
ingly similar to Benatar. The group, which consists 
of Joan Jett, vocals and guitar; Gary Ryan, bass 
and vocals; Lee Crystal, drums; and Ricky Byrd, 
guitar and vocals; does however add some of their 
own punk style to give the group a distinguishable 
sound. The much-aired title track and "Crimson 
and Clover" are among the best tracks on the 
album. "(I'm Gonna) Run Away", "Love Is Pain", 
"Victim Of Circumstance", and "You're Too 
Possessive" are also good. However the leathery- 
looking group hit an all-time low with their version 
of the Christmas favorite "Little Drummer Boy". 
I'm Sony, but Christnias classics and punk just don't 
mix! On a scale of 1-10, this album would rate no 
higher than 4. 


At last, the final trip payment is due this 
Tuesday — March 2. The balance of amount 
due will be collected during the lunch and din- 
ner hours In the Dining Hall. Any problems,

The Philadelphia Flower Show, as every O.H. 
major should know, will soon be here. After many 
months of planning and working by many of the 
students and their advisors, the College's exhibit — 
Bulbs For All Seasons — is nearly ready for the big 
week. This year's exhibits can be seen at the Civic 
Center on the week of March 7-14, 1982. 

This year, as in the past, the Delaware Valley 
College will have an educational exhibit. Bulbs For 
All Seasons demonstrates bulb planting and forcing 
methods, bulb culture and care, and some of the 
many uses of bulbs, both in and around the home 
all year 'round. True bulbs, as well as other struc- 
tures treated like bulbs including corms, tubers, and 
rhizomes, are featured in the exhibit. 

Tickets for this year's flower show can be pur- 
chased at the door for $5.00 or in advance at DVC 
for $4.25.

Senior Dinner Dance at Bentley's — April 2 

SPORTS . . . 


Indicative of the youth of Delaware Valley Col- 
lege 1981-82 basketball squad is the fact that the 
top two scorers and leading rebounder were sopho- 
mores. The leading scorer was Jay Nichols who 
averaged 19.8 ppg shooting slightly over 50% from 
the field. Jay averaged 18.0 ppg in M.A.C. com- 
petition and led the team in foul shooting with 
81.6% from the free throw line. The second 
leading scorer, 11.6 ppg and leading rebounder 
7.7, was sophomore Walt Weir who played his first 
year of Varsity basketball. 

The youthful Aggies lost only two seniors, co- 
captains Mark Tymes and Gary Ulrich. Mark played 
four years on the Varsity and started for three 
years. He averaged 8.0 ppg. Junior transfer Jim 
Leddy broke Mark Tymes season assist record this 
year totaling 117 for the season. 

Two freshmen who showed considerable im^ 
provement as the season progressed were Adam 
Citgo and Brad Leslie. Adam started for the second 
half of the season and averaged 6.1 ppg and 5.1 
rebounds per game. Brad Leslie came on strong 
the latter part of the season and had three double 
figure games. 

Senior Captains 

Mark T\>mes 

Gary Ulrich 

The highlight of the long season was a 41-40 
upset of nationally ranked Scranton University on a 
Nichols' jump shot at the final buzzer. The Aggies 
set a new school record with 5 overtimes and won 
their 3 games by a total of 4 points. 

WOMEN'S BBALL WRAP UP Parsons, Cranney Win Awards! 

by Marcia Werner 

The Lady Aggies traveled to Holy Family College 
for their last game of the season. They had no pro- 
blems in winning 70-54. Everybody played and 
everybody scored which was a nice way to end the 
season. Sherry Ogg led the way with 18 pts., fol- 
lowed right behind by Sandy Yerkes with 16. Se- 
nior Patti Rissinger contributed 13 rebounds and 10 
assists to end her career. However, the highlight of 
the whole season came when Missy Young went to 
the foul line for 2 shots. She made the first one, and 
on the seco'nd one, she forgot which sport she was 
playing and set the ball just like in a volleyball 
game. The best part is that she made that free 
throw too! Congratulations Missy! 

Some end-of-the-season statistics showed: 

Sandy Yerkes — High Scorer, 344 pts. — 15.6 pts. /game 

Sherri Ogg — High Rebounder, 244 — 11.9 reb./game 

Patti Rissinger — Assist Leader, 112 — 5.1 assists/game 

Marcia Werner — Foul Shooting %-age — 76% 

Sandy Yerkes — Shooting %-agc — 49% 

Patti Rissinger — Steals — 47 

Overall, the team shot 37% from the floor and 
56% from the foul line. They averaged 63.3 points 
per game. 

I would like to thank our faithful fans for sticking 
by us through our ups and downs throughout the 
season. Hope to see you all back next year cheer- 
ing. We'll try to better our 12-11 record from this

The Delaware Valley College cross country team 
held its annual banquet at The Moose Lodge on 
Wednesday night, with Jim Parsons and Jeanne 
Cranney coming away with top honors. 

"Season-wise, we were plagued with injuries in 
both the men's and the women's programs, " Del 
Val head coach Bob Berthold said. 

Still, the men were able to finish with an 5-5 
record, while the women were able to finish 4-1. 
The women were second in the PAIAW and third 
in the MAC. 

Parsons, from North Penn, was named the 
outstanding male harrier. His accomplishments in- 
cluded finishing first in the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference (MAC), second in the regional qualifying 
meet and he set the course record at Del Val. He 
was number one man on the team all season. Rich 
Weaver and Ed Kuri were named the captains for 
next season. 

Cranney, from Central Bucks West, was the top 
female runner on the team, she was number seven 
in the MAC championships and number six at the 
prestigious Shippensburg Invitational. She will be 
one of the captains next year, along with Sue 
Wagner and Gail Keleher. 

Letter winners for the Fall, 1981 season were:

Due to the graduation of many key people from 
this year's team. Coach Berthold is looking for 
anyone who might be interested in running cross 
country next Fall. This can be someone with 
previous cross country experience who for one 
reason or another up until now has not come out 
for the Del Val team, or someone who has never 
run competitively before. Each season we have 
people in the later category who develop to the 
point where they earn their varsity letter. Included 
in this group this year were Carl Pellington. Jeanne 
Cranney, Jean Toutkoushian, and Liz Trimble. 
Anyone who thinks that they MIGHT be interested 
in running cross country should either see Dr. Bert- 
hold or send him their name, home address, and 
year of graduation via the College mail.

Senior Tony Novak earned Ail-American honors 
at 134 pounds by placing sixth in the NCAA Divi- 
sion ill Wrestling Championships this weekend at 
Cortland (N.Y.) State College. 

Novak advanced to the semifinals with victories 
over three opponents, including the second seeded 
wrestler in the tournament, Brett Wyss of Harum 
(Ohio) College. Novak easily handled Wyss, to the 
tune of an 11-2 victory. Novak also defeated An- 
drew Komerak of Buffalo in overtime. The deci- 
sion, which ended in a 2-2 stalemate, went to 
Novak on the basis of a near fall registered by the 
Aggie grappler earlier in the match. 

Novak advanced to the semifinals after decking 
Craig Ferguson of Capitol College at the 1:2? mark 
of the first period . 

"He's looked good all his matches, " said Del Val 
coach Bob Marshall. 

In the semifinals, Novak wrestled against Bob 
Carto of Oswego State College and was disquali- 
fied for unnecessary roughness. 

Carto opened a cut over Novak's eye that the Del 
Val wrestler sustained in last weekend's Middle 
Atlantic Conference championships. The cut re- 
quired seven stitches to close and was expected to 
be fully healed before the nationals. 

"He looked good all the way through," said 
Marshall. "He didn't wrestle like himself after he 
opened up the cut." 

"It (the cut) didn't have a full week of healing. 
It looked in good shape but once you get in a 
match and get roughed up a little bit, anything can 

After losing in the semifinals, Novak lost two 
rriatches in the wrestle backs, falling to Pat Mac- 
Mahon of Augustana and Ron Hedley of Messiah. 

Novak was the only senior among the four Dela- 
ware Valley College wrestlers making the trip to 

Mark Sands, a'sophomore from Pennridge who 
wrestles in the 150 pound class, was ousted in the 
first round after losing a close 9-8 decision to Steve 
Goldenberg of Wesleyan, 9-8. Tony Tarsi, another 
sophomore, was ousted in the second round after 

The Marked Bulk 

dropping a 8-4 decision to Todd Staates of Central 
College in the 126 pound matchup. 

Bruce Stajnrajh fell to Hunter College's Guy 
Ventura by an 11-2 score in a 158 pound bout. 

Like Novak the previous year, Sands, Stajnrajh, 
and Tarsi were all eliminated in initial rounds of 
competition. But since all three grapplers are only 
sophomores, Marshall is hoping that they will re- 
turn to nationals next year with a little bit more 

"It's good experience for them," Marshall said. 
"That's what has helped Tony (Novak) this year." 

"He lost in the second round last year," Marshall 
said. "This is great. With three sophomores they get 
that experience under their belts and come back 
next year and they can concentrate on wrestling." 

Marshall explained that newcomers to national 
competition tend to hold back a bit for fear of mak- 
ing a mistake, Novak, with experience gained in 
last year's NCAA championships, has been going 
all out and keeping nothing in reserve. 

"He's wrestled each match like it was the finals," 
Marshall said. 

Tony was awarded the team's M.V.P. at the 
wrestling banquet last Wednesday at Boston 
Seafood Party. Tom Zonay was presented with the 
fastest pin trophy for his 12 second fall at the last 

Orchids on Trial 

by G. Todd 

"Kehr Orchid Houses presented by Abraham B. 
and Hilda B. Kehr September 15. 1963" reads the 
plsque mounted on the side of the orchid green- 
houses located near the propagation houses be- 
tween the horticulture building and the fiberglass 
horticulture greenhouse. These greenhouses and 
an extensive orchid collection were donated to 
Delaware Valley College in 1963 by the Kehrs from 
Jenkintown, Pa. Mr. Kehr was an orchid collector 
and even had a variety of white orchid named in his 
honor. These greenhouses had to be dissembled 
from thejr site in Jenkintown and relocated on the 
campus, a costly move that the college had to 
absorb. The relocation transpired in the summer 
of 1963 and. in September, the orchid houses were 
dedicated by Pearl Buck. However, no funds were 
donated with the collection for its future care. 

At that time, and even now, it was an honor for a 
college of this size to have an orchid collection. In 
1967 the number of plants amounted to over two 
thousand. Since then the number of plants has 
been reduced so that now there exists one house of 
Cymbidium orchids, and another house of Phalae- 
nopsis and Cattaleya orchids. In the remaining sec- 
tion of the orchid houses are plant materials used 
for Dr. Blumenfield's Botany course. Approximate- 
ly 200 orchid plants are also housed in Greenhouse 
I in the OH. greenhouse complex. 

But have you seen these orchids lately? Unfor- 

tunately, over the years the quality of the orchid 
collection has declined with the number of specimens. 
Initially, Mr. Grau took a great interest in the or- 
chid collection. More recently. Jim Romano. Ju- 
nior Floriculture major, took an interest in the col- 
lection and donated much of his own time to its 


The problems of the collection are many. Part of 
the problem lies in the fact that the orchids have 
developed disease and viral problems. The orchids 
also suffered additional damage when the heating 
system in the orchid houses failed during winter 
break. However, much of the problem lies simply in 
the fact that the care of the plants has lapsed and no 
one here is an expert in the field of orchid culture. 
The orchids have not been totally neglected; in the 
recent past the plants have been culled, repotted, 
and divided by the greenhouse staff. In spite of this, 
according to Mr. Cowhig, Greenhouse Supervisor, 
the orchids have not received the proper care for 
the past ten years. 

Realizing the value of the collection. Dr. Martin, 
Head of the OH. Department, has made attempts 
to improve the collection. He has asked a student's 
father, a man knowledgeable in orchid care, to 
view the collection and to offer his suggestions to 
improve it. Another expert was also asked to view 
the collection. In spite of these efforts, no action has 
been taken by either man. Dr. Martin has also pro- 
posed a program on the upkeep and maintenance 
of all collections located on campus. Perhaps there 

is hope here. , , _

home match. Along with the food, the team enjoyed 
reflecting on their very successful 15-1 season and 
undebated domination of the Middle Atlantic con- 
ference. (And that's the facksl) 

Many of the wrestlers have already started weight 
training for next season to ensure that the MAC 
wrestling championship title will remain 
home at P.V.C.

Dear Editors', 

In the last issue of the Ram Pages, the model of 
the proposed new .student center graced the front 
page. 1 agree that such a facility is greatly needed, 
especially for the commuting students, but there are 
a few things about the proposed student center 
which disturb me. 

First, I notice that the student center has a defi- 
nitely modern style. I have nothing personal against 
modern architecture, but as I look around campus 
all of the other buildings have a colonial flavor 
which give the campus a warm atmosphere. Such a 
modern facility would only look out of place on our 

My second concern is the location of the build- 
ing. I think that where they are planning to build it 
will be rather out of the way for commuters, who 
would use it between classes. Also there are no 
footpaths from the center of campus to where the 
new Student Center would be. I personally feel that 
the baseball field would be the ideal place to put the 
student center. It would be closer to the center of 
campus, and allow it to become a focal point for the 
campus. And what about the baseball field? It could 
be moved to another area of the campus, the pres- 
ent one is in rather bad shape and it could then be 
placed where people won't be walking on it so often .

Financial Aid in Dire Straits 

by Warren Lewis 

President Reagan lowered the ax on Student 
Financial Aid earlier this week, however the House 
Education and Labor Committee is bringing the 
cavalry to the rescue. With precise timing National 
Student Lobby Day went off with apparent success. 

Rep. Carl D. Perkins (D., KY) chairman of the 
House Education and Labor Committee told 
several hundred students, "We are going to prohibit 
any further cutbacks, and we should commence to 
restore the cuts that have already been made." 

Under loan cutbacks that Reagan wants to. put in- 
to effect April 1 , graduate students who wish to fur- 
ther their education would be barred from getting 
the 9% Guaranteed Student Loans (GSL). Instead 
he wants the graduate students to borrow under a 
14% auxiliary loan program, with no interest sub- 
sidy, and boost the debt ceiling from $25,000 to 
$40,000. He also wants to double the 5% interest 
rates to pay back the GSL and make students pay 
the money back at market rates of currently 19% . 
The rally ended on the steps of the capital building. 

So as it stands now, the budget for the 
1982-1983 school year will remain as it was for this 
year. When we return from break, I will be updating 
the Financial Aid story, as well as to see how much 
the students of this college depend on financial aid.

Dear Aggie^ 

Dear Aggie, 

All my roommate does is complain these days. 
She's got a complaint about everything and any- 
thing under the sun. I mean hey, I get D's once and 
a while on my exams, but I don't sit around com- 
plaining. I do something. What can I do, I'm really 
sick of her persistant grumps & groans. Help me 
out of a wail of a situation. 

Blocked Ears 

Dear Blocked, 

Some people just like to hear themselves talk. 
Your roommate sounds like she needs a vacation. 
Anytime she begins to complain just change the 
subject. Hopefully she will get the hint and start do- 
ing something about her problems instead of just 
talking about them. Good luck! 


Dear Aggie, 

My friends say that I don't get out enough to par- 
ty. I like a good party once in a while, but I'm not 
into getting drunk every night. I feel comfortable 
with my friends but they don't seem to understand 
that peace and quiet can be just as enjoyable as a 
party. Maybe with your help we'll begin to see eye 
to eye. 


Dear B.L., 

Everyone is different and your friends probably 
do see that. Just do what you feel is right. Going to 
a party every night doesn't necessarily make you 
popular. But don't go overboard — a good party 
always is fun. You know what makes you happy. 


Orchids on Trial 

cont'd from page 1 

According to Mr. Cowhig, the present value of the 
collection is only about one-tenth its original value. 
And the orchids are really valuable only to an or- 
chid breeder. However, orchid popularity in floral 
design is increasing. 

Originally the plants' identities were number cod- 
ed but these recordf were either never available or 
have been lost. Also, due to repotting and dividing 
the plants, few species still have any identification at 
all. Proper identification is one means to improve 
the value of the collection. 

Mr. Cowhig also stated that, because of the high 
fuel costs, there is little interest in orchid production 
in the area: most orchids are produced in Hawaii. 
Israel, and the Far East. 

Although it may seem logical, in view of the pre- 
sent condition of the plants, to eliminate them alto- 
gether, few people realize the value that the plants 
have to the college. Even though it is true that the 
collection is an old one and perhaps obsolete, very 
valuable varieties as well as some unusual cultivars 
are included in the collection. 

The orchids have an educational, as well as mon- 
etary, value. Being cultivated in a bark media 
makes the orchids a unique plant for study. The 
flowers are used for Dr. Martin's Floral Design 
courses. The plants and flowers have also been us- 
ed as part of the Philadelphia Flower Show exhibits 
and DVC's A-Day exhibits. 

But are these benefits worth the time to care for 
the plants and the upkeep and maintenance of the 
greenhouses? Dr. Feldstein is aware of the situation 
and commented that the money spent for this is of 
no magnitude. He also remarked that we are not in 
the orchid business and that it is difficult to place a 
value on the plants. He feels that the purpose and 
value of the collection should be re-evaluated, as it 
has been in the past, but also, that it should be 
preserved; the greenhouse was offered to the col- 
lege as an orchid house and he feels that it should 
be maintained as such. Some plants should be 
kept, but he is not against reducing the number and 
growing compatible plants with the orchids. 

Although Dr. Allison does not use the orchids at 
all in his laboratory studies, he commented, "It 
would be a great loss to the college if we were to 
lose the orchids." 

The plants are now cared for by the greenhouse 
staff and work-study students. The action that 
needs to be taken is for one knowledgeable per- 
son to be assigned to the care of the plants. The 
diseased plants should be treated or eliminated and 
the remaining plants repotted, divided, and proper- 
ly identified. This will be done, says Mr. Cowhig, 
however, probably not until the summer break. 
Hopefully the orchid collection will have improved 
by next fall.

1 need it bad! What is the most common response 
that comes to mind? No, not that! (Not a bad 
answer though, but keep trying.) The usual answer 
is Florida which is inspired by the television com- 
mercial telling us all to go down south to the "Sun- 
shine State." Yet there are more places just like 
Florida to visit on spring break. 

One such place is lovely Iran. Be the center of at- 
tention at some of those Iranian bashes. You know, 
like standing in front of the American Embassy 
waving and American flag. There you will be hon- 
ored by the burning of an effigy in vour likeness. 

Or, why not go to EI Salvador? I hear the weath- 
er is fantastic this time of year Beat the rush to this 
tiny country and outsmart Ronald Reagan before 
he sends you a free pass to visit! 

Another nice place is the Okefenokee Swamp on 
the borders of Georgia and Florida. Here you can 
mud wrestle an alligator. Not for fun, but for sur- 
vival. While here, indulge in the delights of south- 
ern cooking. One great dish that always pleases is 
possum pie! 

If you are the adventurous type, how 'bout jour- 
neying to South Africa. Go on a safari and hunt big 
game. One popular prize is the rare and timid 
creature called Idi Amin. 

Go to British Guinea. Pick a banana. Try some 
Kool-Aid at Jonestown. 

Become a terrorist and hold Italy captive for 
awhile. The green-isles offer a great time. Visit nor- 
thern Ireland and never come back. Meanwhile 
Poland is having a fast. No luxuries there. Israel is 
in a state of panic. Afghanistan is still in turmoil. 
Jordan and Syria are at it again! No laughing matter 

On second thought, go to Florida. Be glad you're 
here in America. Better yet, try the other answer. 


Mark your calendars early for an evening of 
recreation and fun. The Class of 1985 Is spon- 
soring a Racquetball and Walleyball Night at 
the Highpoint Racquet Club on Sunday, April 
4th from 8:00 p.m. till 12:0() midnight. The 
lockerroom facilities include the sauna and 
whirlpool. Towels will be available to the 
students and their guests attending. Pizza and 
Birch Beer will be served. Admission will be 
$1.00 for the freshman class members and 
$3.00 for guests and other class members. 
Everyone Is encouraged to attend. 


On Wednesday, March 24th, the Freshman 
Class in conjunction with the other three 
classes will be traveling to the Sands Casino 
in Atlantic City. The bus will be leaving the 
gym at 5:00 p.m. and will leave the Sands 
Casino at 12:00 a.m. and return to the col- 
lege. The four classes will be collecting 
$10.00 per person during lunch and dinner 
this week in the dining hall. Each student at- 
tending will receive $12.00 in quarters and a 
$2.50 beverage card. Plan to rid your mid- 
week blues at the Sands Casino on the 24th of 

The next Freshman Class Meeting will be on 
Thursday, April 1st at 7:30 in A114. A-DAY 
will be the major topic of discussion. 


Winston's P.M. 

by Mike Farbotnik 

Up until now the Doylestown area hasn't been 
known for its exciting night life. Outside of the local 
movie theatres, a new arcade room in the shopping 
center, and a few local pubs like Kelly's and the 
N.B.I. , there hasn't been much in the way of more 
sophisticated fun. This all changed recently when 
Winston's, the restaurant, expanded its operations 
to include a new nightclub called Winston's P.M. 
Upon entering, you're greeted by several employ- 
ees who check I.D. Not everyone is checked but it's 
a good idea to have some with you, just in case. 
There is also a NO JEANS sign, but this simply 
means please dress neatly. There are two bars in- 
side to serve the most discriminating drinker, with 
the price of most mixed drinks being reasonable. A 
beer here isn't as cheap as at the local but then the 
entertainment is quite a bit better. 

The band now playing, White Bridge, will be 
there through February. This is not a guitar and 
drum rock band, but a well rehearsed group with a 
very diversified repertoire of numbers that aren't 
too loud or too mellow. The band itself plays on a 
circular, revolving stage in the middle of the dance 
floor which is also circular. If you're not up to danc- 
ing. Winston's atmosphere is pleasant for mingling 
or for just sitting and talking. 

If you're looking for a night spot with style to 
meet someone or just go and have a good time with 
friends, and you don't feel like driving to Philadel- 
phia to dance, and if you want a little more than the 
Farmhouse, and if N.J. bars are too teeny bopper. 
then Winston's P.M. is the place for you. 

Winston's P.M. is located on 611 in Warrington, 
just passed Bristol Road. There is usually no cover 
charge. If you want to get a table with seats for 
some friends, then get there before 9:30 on the 
weekends, soon after that it becomes standing 
room only. 

Ice Capades Concludes 
Philadelphia Shows 


The Ice Capades just left town but they aren't 
gone for good. A spectacular show of beautiful 
women, exciting skaters including Tai Babilonia 
and Randy Gardner. (World Champions in their 
own rite), and comedy on ice blended with lots of 
scenery and lights proved for a great evening. Why 
mention it now? Ice Capaces may now be on tour 
near you if you live elsewhere, or catch the show 
next year. It isn't just for kids anymore. You arc 
guaranteed to love every minute of it no matter 
when you catch it! 

Chorale Society 

The Chorale Society is preparing a concert for 
on and off campus events this semester. The pro- 
gram includes Haydn's "St. Nicholas Mass" with 
the Bucks County Community College Choir, 
music from the Broadway shows "Oliver". "The 
Sound of Music ", and "Man of La Mancha". poems 
of Robert Frost set to music by Randall Thompson, 
sea chanteys, an arrangement of "Scarborough 
Fair" by Emery Holiut. "Dream" by Johnny

S/iear Madness 

by Mike Jaskolka 

This show is currently playing in the Burgundy 
Theatre in the plush Bellevue Stratford Hotel in 
Philadelphia. Shear Madness is a comedy 'who dun 
it', letting the audience try to solve the murder 

The shows setting is in a Unisex Hair Styling 
Salon somewhere in Philadelphia. The plot and the 
beginning of the show is slow in building, but the 
funny antics of the actors makes this a minor flaw. 
You don't realize what is going on until the end of 
act one, when a detective from Philadelphia's finest 
comes out and states that a murder has been com- 
mitted. The second part of the show involves the 
audience, in whjch they try to solve the murder. 
While the actors reaccount their steps and actions 
of the first act the audience trys to catch them in a 
lie. The encounters between the actors and audi- 
ence make this a very funny show. The ending will 
be a complete surprise, you'll have to see the show 
to know what I mean. 

Snacks and drinks are sold and served before the 
show and during intermission. Prices vary from 
$12.00 on weekdays and Sunday, and $14.00 on 
Friday and Saturday evenings. 

To get to the Bellevue Stratford from the cam- 
pus, take 611 south to City Hall, stay on Broad 
Street, the Theatre is located on Broad and Walnut 

This theatre goer really enjoyed the show. As I 
said it involves audience participation, so go get 
involved and have a real humorous evening. The 
Bellevue Stratford also has an after theatre restau- 
rant "O' Briens", or enjoy romancing and dancing 
in the Hunt Room with the Herb Hesch Quartet till 
2 a.m. A most enjoyable evening awaits you at the 
Burgundy Theatre, in the Bellevue Stratford Hotel.

Due to the increased volume of traffic on 611, 
the Department of Transportation will begin con- 
structing a new 611 bypass to go through the Dela- 
ware Valley College campus to ease the congestion. 

The road will enter the campus at the north gate 
— pass through the men's shower in Ulman, pro- 
ceed through the lounge of Cooke and the ladies 
room in Barness. From there it will become a tunnel 
going under the gymnasium and surfacing next to 
Elson Hall where the Dining Hall will be torn down 
for a parking lot. Elson Hall will gain an addition of 
2 stories for the new DVC Truck and Tractor stop 
and bar. All students will be admitted free of charge 
to make up for the slight inconvenience caused by 
the new route. Segal Hall was spared from demoli- 
tion due to the historic background of the structure. 

The Dairy will also be getting some work done on 
it to make way for traffic. 611 will be ramped over 
the dairy at a heigh of 25-30' so that new animal 
shelters may be built beneath the bridge spans. All 
dairy cows and employees at the dairy will be is- 
sued the latest in ear muffs to quell the noise of the 
traffic. There will be an advantage for delivering 
supplies and food stuff to the dairy by simply dump- 
ing it off of the bridge into special catch bins 
assembled for the new facility. 

Construction is set to begin immediately and 
should be complete by next (April Fool's Dai;). 

Flower Show's A Huge Success 

by Warren Lewis 

The Philadelphia Flower Show was a huge success as thousands of peo- 
ple flocked to see nature's beauty in a harmonious display of the areas best 
landscape and floral professions. When entering the flower show all that a 
person can see is the finished product of each of the exhibits. What you 
don't see is all the preparation that went into preparing the exhibits. 

"Bulbs for all Seasons" 

Preparation for this year's flower show began in the fall of 1981. Dr Mar- 
tin, Mr. Cowhig, Mr. Alexander, Vicki Hawkins, and Dr. Seik were the 
backbone of the exhibit. Committees were set up. Graphics were used to ex- 
plain our exhibit, a Brochure explaining care and planting of BULBS FOR 
ALL SEASONS, plus a construction committee for physically assemblinq 
the exhibit. 

In October of last year bulbs were donated by W. Atlee Burpee Co. , War- 
minster. The bulbs were then potted and moved to the cold frames at 
Burpee's Fordhook Farm branch. After one month the bulbs were moved to 
the Aaron Building basement where they would stay for 16 weeks. 

While Mr. Cowhig and his classes were caring for the bulbs, Dr. Seik was 
hard at work designing and constructing the exhibit. A sleepless night in 
September found Doc awake at the drawing board. He took a 25 foot circle, 
shaped it into an octagon and then divided it up into 4 sections for the 4 
seasons. Spring and summer dominated in area because it is where most of 
the bulbs would be placed. With the help of his landscape construction 
classes, the parts of the exhibit were cut and fitted. A raised crooked path 
was designed to go through the middle of the exhibit and bisect spring and 
summer from fall and winter. 

The exhibit, would be useless unless there were graphics to explain what 
we had done. Graphics are instrumental in an educational exhibit. A great 
deal of time was taken to say what would get the point across in the easiest 
and simplest way. 

By the first week of January, Mr. Alexander and Vicki were busy juggling 
the bulbs. They were moved to a warmer house, around 60-65 °F and if that 
didn't work they used heating pads to try to get them started. Some bulbs 
were forced early to give students a spring preview of the flower show. Sod 
was also being grown. 

Finally it was time to pack it all up and transport everything down to the 
show. Friday night finishing touches were put on the exhibit. Saturday 
morning was the judging and the big payoff! All 4 awards! 

Overall some 8,000 bulbs were forced for the exhibit, comprising some 2 
dozen varieties of bulbs. All of the plants used in the show were grown by 
the students and staff in our greenhouses. 

One person without whom the success of the flower show would not be 
possible was Tim Varacallo who was in charge of campus grounds main- 
tenance along with Mr. Rellis. A lot of good experience came out of the 
show for everyone who participated. Dr. Martin commented that this show 
showed a consistent winning attitude rather than what he called the "Hot 
Dog" attitude — that being, one person deciding about everything. 

There will be a meeting for next year's flower show on April 13, 4:00 in 
the greenhouse classroom. 

We want to get some ideas for next year and get a good start for another 
successful show.

Dear Editors', 

The intramural program is a good program for 
recreation, fun, and physical fitness. NOT, physical 
mutilation. Take for example the girl's floor hockey 
game. There is some excellent talent there but no 
one will ever know because they have been man- 
gled and banged. Now whose fault is this? The girls" 
or the referees? The answer — the refs. this can be 
seen by the fact that some refs are fair and during 
these games most penalties are seen and called. 
However, there are other games where partiality is 
to such an extreme that one team may as well be 
playing with one hand tied behind their backs. In 
other words some refs stink. Things should be call- 
ed on both teams. They should control the tempo 
of the game. A game which should be played in fun 
and can be — not blood. Sportsmanship is obvious- 
ly lacking on some teams!

What's developing at the 
Development Office? 

by Martha Gehringer 

The Development Office has come into the spot- 
light recently with the phonathon. By working with 
the alumni office they are trying to raise, money for 
the new student center. Other projects which the 
Development Office is working on include 
horse complex, and an addition to the greenhouse 

But what exactly is the Development Office, ex- 
cept seemingly another step to all the red tape 
needed before anything gets done. They are in fact 
a necessary link to getting things acc<5mplished not 
just red tape. The Development Office basically 
plans and develops funds for projects and promotes 
these projects in various ways. One way is through 
pamphlets, providing background information, and 
a slide presentation which they have put together. 

They try to obtain funds by matching companies 
which might be interested in a particular project. 
Such as the Student Center, it's considered a 
capital improvement, so foundations that are in- 
terested in that are approached for contributions. 
The Student Center is the current push for the 
funds. The alumni have targeted as a contribution 
goal $300,000, so far they have only reached the 
$100,000 mark. They hope not only to appeal to 
the alumni but also to parents and friends of the 

Once the Student Center has been achieved, the 
next project is the horse complex, which is also 
close to a reality. Another project which is develop- 
ing is the dairy expansion. The first phase of getting 
something new such as the dairy expansion, begins 
with the department which does the initial plan- 
ning, research, and engineering. Then the proposal 
goes to the Development Office and Dr. Feldstein. 
If it is approved, the funds must then be secured 
before anything can happen. > 

Right now there are many plans for improve- 
ments to the college and the Development Office is 
right in the center of all the activity. It is a long pro- 
cess before the plans are realized but at least they 
are moving in the right direction. Who knows, 
when we come back as alumni we may be able to 
enjoy the new improvements instead of just spec- 
ulating how they'll turn out. 

Founder's Day 1982 

Founders' Day Convocation will be held on 
Sunday, April 25, 1982 at 3:30 p.m. in the James 
Work Gymnasium. 

In addition to our traditional procedures, many 
students will be recognized for their outstanding 
achievements and dedicated service to the College. 


by Martha Gehringer 

After Christmas a few changes were made around 
campus. One of these changes involve the security 
of the girl's dorms. No longer do the female resi- 
dents have to worry about liaving their ID's with 
them when they are out late, after hours. Now they 
just have to carry their handy dandy card which 
unlocks the door. 

The new lock came as a result of a decision of the 
administration to upgrade the security, and the re- 
quest of the women residents for changes and im- 
provements. Also the old locks were physically 
worn out. as could be seen by incidents in the fall. 

The cards are coded and each dorm has its own 
code. The cards will be collected at the end of the 
year with the key. If the card isn't turned in, a fee of 
$2.00 will be charged. 

Even though the dorms now have improved locks 
this doesn't solve all of the problems. The lounge 
windows in Barness and Cooke still present a pro- 
blem. Also the doors on these dorms don't hang 
correctly. This then prevents them from closing 
properly. Maintenance has plans to rebuild the 
doors which will hopefully take care of the problem. 

No locks work 100% of the time. The way to 
have them work more fully is for the students to 
make them work, by pulling the doors shut when 
they don't quite close. 

BAS Holds Career Conference 

by Cornelia Prundeanu 

Over 100 students attended the Business Admin- 
istration Society's 11th annual career conference, 
held in the James Work Gymnasium on March 3. 
Students had the opportunity to meet with over 35 
career representatives, many of whom were also 
alumni of Delaware Valley College, and learn 
about such fields as banking, real estate, account- 
ing, and data processing. 

Keynote speaker at the luncheon following the 
conference was Dennis O'Brien, from Penn Mutual 
Life Insurance Co.. who helped originate the first 
annual business career conference. Mr. O'Brien 
spoke on the history of the career conference, 
which, although it has grown and improved since it 
was begun, has retained the same purpose — to 
show business students the many directions they 
can go after graduation. 

Following the speech, the club presented to Mr. 
Simone. advisor of BAS, and Mr. West, chairman 
of the business department, plaques recognizing 
their outstanding service to the Business Adminis- 
tration Society. 

The club also wishes to thank Patrice Smith, 
chairman of this year's conference, those who serv- 
ed on her committee, and also the businessmen 
and women who donated their time for a successful 
an,d informative conference. 

New Class Explores 
Mass Communications 

by M.P. 

A class in Mass Communication which is being 
offered for the first time at our College. In addition 
to the formal classroom instruction the class has 
already visited three local area media outlets. The 
18 members of the class visited Early Printing, 
where they traced the production of the monthly 
New Hope Magazine with the help of editor Bar- 
bara Thompson. This trip gave students insight into 
the actual process of publishing a magazine and the 
print technology that is available. 

The second early morning trip found the class ex- 
ploring WBUX with an emphasis on news and on 
the air programing. A hands on demonstration was 
provided by news director Don Taylor and morning 
disc jockey Mike Haldemen. 

The class also toured the Cable Vision operation 
in Doylestown. There students were shown the 
latest in mobile cable equipment and functioning 
studio and technology of the company. 

Future trips include visiting AM Philadelphia, a 
meeting with Jim O'Brien and Lisa Thomas Laurey, 
and a trip to New York City. Locally, the class will 
visit the Daily Intelligencer, and will be receiving a 
visit from Philadelphia TV personality Steve Levy. 

The students recently completed professional 
photo sound 'synchronized productions. The cur- 
rent project is a group documentary production, 
where a 20-30 minute film will be created. 

This combination of classroom and professional 
activity has given the group a workable knowledge 
of the field of Mass Communications. 

Financial Aid Today 

by Warren Lewis 

The effect of Federal budget cutbacks on student 
financial aid programs is a-major concern of many 
college students. As of now, Congress had decided 
to leave the Financial Aid Program in the 1983 
budget alone. This means that all of the aid pro- 
grams will remain the same for the 1982-83 school 
year. Here is some information you may find in- 
teresting about the students who go to this college. 
70% of the entire student body at our college 
receives one type of aid or a combination of several 
programs. This means that if Reagan was to have 
his way, many of us would not be able to return to 
college after this semester. 

We have 344 students receiving $310,000 in Pell 
Grants (formerly known as the Basic Educational 
Opportunity Grants) . 250 students are receiving a 
total of $218,000 in National Direct Student Loans. 
This year 850 students borrowed 1.9 million under 
the Guaranteed Student Loans Program. This pro- 
gram would have been the hardest hit program 
targeted by President Reagan. 130 students are on 
the college work study program this year. 56 
students received a total of $34,000 in Supplemen- 
tary Educational Opportunity Grants. 

One change has already begun in the G.S.L. 
program. For families earning more than $v30,000 a 
test will have to be taken by the family to determine 
if the aid money is really needed. 

Some things that have always been true about all 
types of aid is that it is strictly determined on the 
basis of need. A problem with the fear of aid being 
cut off is that most of us have become so used to 
receiving the aid that the fear of it being cut off 
caused us to worry at least, if not panic. Another 
problem is that people in general have not been 
saving money like we used to wh-oh causes us to 
depend on banks, loans, and the ^tate and federal 
governments for help. 

Fear not, students of Del Val! The college is com- 
ing to the rescue! New programs in progress at our 
college include (1) an expanding of the Del Val 
Grant program now at 300 students; (2) the college 
is expanding student employment roles at the col- 
lege. These include: dorm maintenance, janitorial 
services, and a new student security program. 

The college has adapted the policy of utilizing the 
students wherever possible to fill college jobs. This 
will enable students to help fund their own educa- 
tion. Students who work here will also get tied 
closer to the college. 

The way the National Direct Student Loan Pro- 
gram works is it is a self-funding process based on 
collections from students who are graduating. As 
students pay off their loans, the money is loaned to 
new students corning into the college. A low default 
rate of 2.7% makes it possible for students to con- 
tinue to acquire new loans at a quick pace. The col- 
lege is proud that students are maintaining respon- 
sibility in paying back their loans. 

There is one thing to remember, if you are ever 
having any kinds of problems with your college fun- 
ding, feel free to come up to the financial aid office. 
Mr. Sauer and his department will always be there 
to help you with any problems or questions you 
may have.

The Inn at Phillips Mill 

by Mike Jaskolka 

The Inn at Phillips Mill is located in an old barn 
built around 1750, it was renovated and turned into 
an Inn. As you park your carriage and enter through 
the old wooden door, you step back into history, 
into a pre-revolutionary setting in which candlelight 
dining adds to the elegance of the evening. This 
was one of the most memorable dining experiences 
that I had the pleasure to share. 

The chef's specialty is French style cooking. To 
start the evening we enjoyed a bowl of French 
Onion Soup (2.50) smothered with melted cheese. 
For our main entree, we both were enchanted by 
the Chicken Claude (10.50), sauteed and served 
with bacon and mushrooms in a brown sauce With 
the main entree comes a salad, a potatoe that has 
been specially prepared out of the skin and then put 
back, and fresh cooked mixed vegetables. The 
meal was very tasty and ambrosia. Other entrees 
include Steak au Poivre (13,50) frambe in brandy 
with cream and mushroom sauce. Duck with Ma- 
deira sauce and olives (12.00). and Lamb Chops 
Tarragon (12.50). They welcome you to bring wine 
or beverage for the evening. 

The end of the evening could last for hours, as 
you sit in front of a fire, in a over stuffed couch en- 
joying your dessert and coffee. The dessert was sin- 
fully delicious, I had a Lemon Marangue ice Cream 
Pie (2.00) Other dessert pasteries include Straw- 
berry Japonnaise, Gateau Vienne. and Mousse 
Blonde (2.75). 

This evening is for a very special date, and for a 
time to remember. You can enjoy this evening for 
as little as $30.00. or up to $45,00. but it is well 
worth it. A very warm and romantic evening awaits 

To get to The Inn at Phillips Mill follow 202 south 
to New Hope, turn left on Rt. 32 (River Road) 
follow it for about 5 miles, and the Inn is on the 
right. Reservations are needed and the dress is 
casual. .

Photo of the Week . . . 

by M. Farbotnik 

Morton Grove, Illmois. This obscure little town in 
the Chicago suburbs has taken a monumental step 
toward the abolishment of the second amendment 
of the Constitution of the United States. It was in 
this town that the first ban on the private ownership 
of handguns was imposed. 

The decision on the legality of this move was 
made by Illinois circuit court judge Albert Green. 
He interpreted this phrase from the Illinois State 
Constitution; "Except for police power, the right of 
the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall 
not be infringed," to mean that a person can't be 
denied private ownership of a gun designed to be 
fired with two hands, but can be denied ownership 
of a gun designed to be fired with one hand! The 
logic of this decision escapes me. Whether he was 
trying to make or take a stand in the middle, to 
agree with both sides, or whether he was as it looks, 
obviously bias, he has paved the way for hundreds 
of other similar cases across the country. For exam- 
ple, in East St, Louis, a law went into effect in 
January that prohibits the off premises pos- 
session and transportation of ANY firearm, regard- 
less of whether the gun is being taken hunting, or to 
the trap field, or rifle range. In California, anti- 
gunners are pressing to freeze the number of hand- 
guns allowed in the state. If passed, the law would 
prohibit anyone from moving into the state from 
bringing his or her guns with him. This would also 
apply to those guns being brought into the state for 
hunting or competition. 

The ban on handguns seems to be only the first 
step in the ladder toward the removal of private 
ownership of all guns. The anti-gun coalition usual- 
ly neglect to mention several' things in their argu- 
ments, though. 

First, a gun can be safely kept in the house, and 
can be a deterrent to crim if the members of the 
household know how to use th^ weapon and just 
how much damage it can do, and if they practice 
restraint so they don't just blaze away when this 
extreme can be avoided. 

Second, pistols, rifles, and shotguns all have 
their place in the world of sport, from grouse hunt- 
ing to silhouette shooting with high powered rifles, 
to indoor high school target ranges, millions of 
Americans get enjoyment from competitive and 
sport shooting. This fact dispels the myth that a 
gun's sole purpose is to destroy life. 

Though I am against gun control, I will agree that 
fair solutions are hard to come by. If guns are banned, 
what about the millions who enjoy sport shooting? 
Not to mention the fact that it would require a com- 
plete abolishment of the second amendment. Ban- 
ning guns is not the answer. Perhaps we should 
look to more harsh sentencing. Mandatory sentenc- 
ing has its place as long as the homeowner protec- 
ting himself doesn't have the laws turned on him. 

Gun control is a touchy subject with people 
strongly for and against, but which ever way you 
are, keep in mind that there is a place for guns in 
this society, and that in finding a solution to crime, 
if there is one, we must make sure that the average 
person, clinging to his right to protect himself isn't 
made the criminal through the twisting of the words 
in the constitution.

GREEN DOT DAY IS COMING * nis week on campus 

by Bud Hulshizer 

Delaware Valley College has been chosen by the Board of American Colleges to participate 
in GREEN DOT DAY on Monday, April 26th. Founded in 1973. this institution has its base in 
Washington. D.C, , 

In February of this year a number of students ivere interviewed by the Eastern Board of 
American Colleges affiliated members in an effort to gain official support for the celebration 
of GREEN DOT DAY. Out of all the colleges in the niiddle atlantic states. Delaware Valley 
College was given the honor. Even Princeton has never achieved this rank! 

Upon hearing that DVC would participate, Mr. Tasker said., *i am proud to see DVC finally 
getting some recognition." Mr. Zenkoasked. "Isn't it a legal holiday? I believe I'll take the day 

Classes will go on as usual, unfortunately, along with the celebration on Monday. Mrs. 
Nelson (Dean of Students Office) will be handing out green dots to all students who want to be 
involved in this most momentous occasion in all of DVC history. Pat the dot on your person, 

''Renaissance of the Titanic'' in Review 

Just about anyone from the northern and central parts of New Jersey knows of. or has a least heard of. 
Crystal Ship, a nightclub band whose music is a "renaissance of the Doors." If your not from North Jersey, 
but happened to have been on campus Thursday. April 15th, you now know or at least heard. Crystal Ship, 
even if you weren't at the concert. 

I approach reviewing a concert such as this with an open mind. Being from south Jersey. I had only 
"heard" of Crystal Ship. I was not familiar with a "renaissance of the Doors," or even the Doors themselves. 
Both were "closed" topics as far as my musical education was concerned. I therefore acquired the company 
of a friend whose knowledge of rock 'n roll and appreciation for it exceeds mine by far. 

We entered the James Work Gym a little before eight My first impression was that we had left the D.V.C. 
campus totally. I felt lost in a crowd of unfamiliar faces. Apparently the Doors are popular with the high 
school element in this area. A definite high school age majority ruled the stands and floor in the gym, 
though the concert was by no means a sellout. 

Crystal Ship came on promptly twenty minutes late. The five man band started the night rolling with 
"Give Me Love." They went on with "Hello, I Love You," "Don't You Love Her Madly," "Riders on the 
Storm," "L.A. Woman," and "Roadhouse Blues," just to name a few. 

I'd like to say we liked the concert and had a great time and sat through the whole two hour show. In all 
honesty we listened to the majority of it from my dorm room It actually sounded better from there, but then 
acoustics has never been a virtue of the James Work Gym. 

Being compelled to write a good review, I desperately sought the opinion of others to aid my cause. The 
final concenus was basically a split decision; either they really liked or really disliked the music. This called 
for personal research, so I borrowed some albums of the Doors. I was surprised to firtd that I enjoyed them. 
Possibly Crystal Ship should be known as an "assassination of the Doors." So as far as a review goes, I leave 
it up to personal taste. 

In my opinion, I felt the concert was a success in drawing a large crowd, but a failure as a D.V.C. student 
activity. The fact that such a small number of our own student body attended is proof enough. Maybe they 
just listened from the dorms. Regardless, we all look forward to the next concert. 

A special note of thanks should go to those flashlight toting, cigarette stomping, student government 
members who sacrificed their time and hearing to run an orderly concert. As for the friend I dragged along 
— sorry Di. '

The Ram Pages welcomes the opinions of 
its readers and urges all members of the 
College to participate in this open exchange 
of ideas. For letters to appear in Friday's 
issue, all letters should be signed and 
deposited in the Ram Pages, P.O. Box 988 no 
later than Monday morning. Ram Pages 
reserves the right to edit all submitted 
material. A writer's anonymity will be 
honored if it is requestecj. 

Dear Editors', 

This letter is in response to last week's editorial 
concerning the girls' floor hockey program. There 
are a few items, we, the officials, would like to 
clarify and justify to the person or persons who 
wrote the letter. 

First, let it be known that both floor hockey pro- 
grams were in serious jeopardy after our freshman 
year ('79-'80). But, Mr. Wolfgang stuck his neck 
out and with our help rewriting rules and calling a 
tighter game, we improved the boys and girls 
games 100%. 

Second, my roommate and I both have been 
refereeing the boys and girls leagues since our 
freshman year. As a matter-of-fact, all the referees 
working games have been doing so for awhile, so 
we know what we are doing. Of course, as human 
beings, we make mistakes, besides, it is easier to 
make calls from the bench and bleachers than it is 
from the floor. We follow the ball and the play, so it 
is impossible to call everything. 

Third, we, as a rule, let the boys or girls play their 
own game. We only act as supervisors to oversee 
the play. We neither make nor break a game; the 
players do! 

f^our, as to the violence, you must remember 
hockey is a contact sport and no matter what level it 
is played on, boys or girls, there will always be 
rough play. Some people "get into" the game and 
become over- aggressive which is where we come 

Lastly, we in no way show partiality to any team 
what-so-ever! This comment can only be made by a 
poor sport (s) who cannot handle losing. My advice: 
Get out of sports, especially hockey. It is you who 
screws up the works! It is quite impossible for us not 
to have a favorite because we know most of the 
girls playing and are friends with a lot of girls. As we 
said before, you girls play the game, not the of- 
ficials. We made or didn't make calls because that is 
the way we saw it. If anyone, especially "a bruised, 
mangled, disillusioned player," wants to say 
anymore about the league which is "constructive," 
we will be happy to hear them out. We are not pro- 
fessionals and we try our best. Hockey is a rough 
sport; if you can't stand the heat — get out of the

To the Student Body and the Dining Hall, 

On behalf of myself and the Lab Animal Club, I 
would like to apologize for the incident that occurred 
in the dining hall on March 23r.d. 

It was not the intent of our club to initiate what 
turned into a food fight among the students. 

The theme "Rent a Rat to do Your Dirty Work" 
was basically an innocent and fun idea not intended 
to arouse (shall we say) the animal-like instincts in 
students. It was not in our foresight that students 
would take this event and turn it into an excuse to 
go food-throwing crazy. 

We hope that no one was misfortunately incon- 
venienced in any way by the turmoil that occurred, 
or that no one has taken the theme concept of 
"Rent a Rat" in the wrong manner. 

With all due respect, 

Hoyt Emmons 


Lab Animal Club 

Dear Editors', 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank 
those people who helped organize the Senior Din- 
ner Dance. It was our hope that the evening would 
be a memorable one. This meant a great deal of 
planning and hard work. And although there were 
6 few things that could have been improved upon, 
overall the event was a success. Of course we all 
know it isn't the restaurant or the band that make a 
special evening, it is the people, the friends, that 
make the happening. So again, thanks to all those 
who contributed their time and energy to make the 
evening a success. A special thanks to Barb Meyer, 
Ann Buickus, Karen Kerner, Carl Vivaldi, and 
Jacky Mento for their extra efforts

Spring Craziness 

by Bud Hulshizer 

Spring is here again . More strange things happen 
in this season than in any other. Winter is cold and 
wet; fall is cool and dry; summer is hot and muggy; 
but spring runs both hot. and cold. 

Mother Nature is an appropriate name for the 
being who controls our lives. Only a woman could 
be so fickle. She purposely sets traps for us all to fall 
into. One day it's like summer and the next it's 
winter again. After a few days of this people 
become confused as to what to wear. Should 1 put 
on long Johns or gym shorts? Some people don't 
care and wear summer clothes hoping Mother 
Nature will have a sudden hot flash. However, She 
resents being outguessed, and usually counter- 
moves by suddenly turning frigid. 

Confusion is the prime objective of Mother 
Nature. Nothing is what it seems to be. The other 
day 1 saw a woman swallowed up by a harmless 
looking mud puddle. She sank up to her distal 
fibulas. The puddle looked innocent enough — but 
it wasn't. Three Tuesdays ago, after the 
snowstorm, while everyone else was dressed for 
winter, this guy was wearing a T-shirt and blue 
jeans. He didn't seem to be cold, but he did have a 
bluish tint to his skin. 

So don't get caught in the Spring Fever Syn- 
drome of Craziness. Remember, don't fool with 
Mother Nature — She always comes out on top. 

Founders' Day 

Set for Sunday 

The Annual Founders' Day Convocation at 
Delaware Valley College will be held Sunday, April 
25. 1982 beginning at 3:30 P.M. 

The traditional ceremony will be held in the James

A highlight of this year's program will be the 
recognition of various students and student organiza- 
tions for their outstanding achievement and contribu- 
tion to the College community during the 1981-82 
academic year. 

The College Chorale and Band will present a 
musical performance during the Founders' Day

Equestrian Team Results 

On Sunday, April 4, 1982. the Delaware Valley 
College's Equestrian Team traveled to Old wick, 
N.J. for the Seventh Rutgers University Inter- 
collegiate Horse Show. Overall the team placed 4th 
out of 15 collegiate teams.

Sandy Spring, Maryland. Mary Claire won both the 
Novice Equitation on the flat and the Novice 
Equitation over fences classes. Also winning blue 
ribbons were Cindy Hardesty of Morrisville, Pa. , for 
Beginner Walk-Trot and Dawn Perusek of Ada, 
Ohio for Intermediate Equitation on the flat. 

Some of the other placings were: Kathy Miller, of 
Yardley, Pa., 4th for Novice Equitation on the flat; 
Pat McKeown, of Trenton, N.J., 5th for Open 
Equitation on the flat and 5th for Intermediate 
Equitation over fences; Kathy Gill, of New 
Rochelle, N.Y., 4th for Novice Equitation on the 
flat; and Karen Butcher, of Greendell, N.J., 4th for 
Novice Equitation on the flat. 

Congratulations girls! Keep up the good 
work and good luck in the upcoming shows! 

Delaware Valley College 
Phonathon Fund a Success 

Henry Sumner, Director of Alumni Affairs, an- 
nounced that the College's Alumni Phonathon was 
a huge success. The eight-day phonathon generated 
over $101,000 which will go toward the construction 
of the College's new $3 million Student Center. 
According to Sumner, the $101,000 in pledges will 
increase by the end of the campaign as many con- 
tributions will be generated beyond this pledge 
total, Add to this amount, the $108,000 from last 
year's Alumni Giving Campaign, and the Alumni 
Association is close to its $300,000 goal. 

Over 100 student and alumni volunteers par- 
ticipated in the phonathon. Approximately 5,000 
phone calls throughout the United States were 
attempted and the success of the program was 
reflected in the overwhelming response. 

Brenda Berry '83 arid Warren Lewis '83. 

Dear Phonathoner: 

Phonathon '82 is now over and it has been 
a great success! Through eight sessions of 
phoning you and your fellow volunteers 
received 1,253 pledges amounting to 
$101,064 for DVC. This was well over the 
goal of $80,000. 

In this time of budget cuts and austerity 
measures, we have succeeded in launching 
our new Student Center. It is through this 
type of effort that DVC will continue its com- 
mitment to education. 

On behalf of the Alumni Association and 
Development Office, I thank you for your 
help, and look forward to working with you 
again. It was a great experience!

A- Day Preview 

A-Day has been and always will be a Country 
Fair-type day. The weekend's events are organized 
and operated by the students of the college in order 
to provide the public, family and students with a full 
weekend of pure enjoyment. There are many con- 
tests of .m and individual skills held which require 
from days and weeks to many months of prepara- 
tion. Ag products, hort products, livestock, floral ar- 
rangements, art, science, and farm machinery are all 
exhibited and judged at the once-a-year family affair. 

Now, for the serious part of A-Day! Much help is 
needed to set up booths, tents, exhibits, etc. ... as 
well as to help man/woman the exhibits, etc. . . . 
and to help clean up once A-Day is over. Success 
depends on the entire student body participating in 
this special event. If you are in a club, sign up to 
help out. If not, you may donate your work hours 
to your major or to your favorite organization on 
campus. Remember 1 thing — Party Hardy! 

The Student's Psalm 

The professor is my quizmaster, I shall not flunk. 

He maketh me to enter the examination room. 

He leadeth me to an alternate seat. 

He restoreth my fears. 

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

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

The class average comforts me. 

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

He anointeth my head with figures. My time 
runneth out. 

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

And I will dwell in this university forever. Amen.

Pirts and Crafts Exhibit 

Last year the library was given two glass table- 
type exhibit cases. (4V2 x 2 ft.) These cases are 
being reserved for an Arts and Crafts display to be 
held in October during Homecoming festivities. It's 
not too early to be thinking of something you'd like 
to create to show off your hidden talents, and the 
summer vacation will give you an opportunity to 
start a project. So, if you paint, quilt, carve, sculpt, 
sew, print, etc. . . . wc want you for the show! 

Applications and further news given early in 
September. One important fact to keep in mind: 
the glass exhibit area measures 6" high, so tall ob- 
jects will be considered for our extra lighted cylinder 
case only.

Music Review 

"Just Another Day in Paradise" — Bertie Higgins 

This February '82 released album by an 
unknown artist is well worth noticing. His talent can 
be seen in his music, lyrics, and singing. His style, 
of which "Key Largo" is typical, is uniquely his own 
and well-liked by the record buying public. 

His music could be said to have a tropical sound, 
the beat on most tracks on the album is slow and 
perfect for a slow dance. That's what you'll want to 
do, too, because he sings of love in his own way 
and finds ways of saying "I love you" that are his 
alone. His voice is also fitting for the songs; he has a 
soft Don Juan type voice that complement both the 
music and lyrics. 

The topics of his songs center around the South , 
where he is from, around the tropics, the sea, 
nature, old movies, and love. 

The songs range from the lonely "The Heart is 
the Hunter," to the haunting "The Tropics," the 
nostalgic "Casablanca," the incestual "Port-O-Call" 
the up tempo "Down at the Blue Moon," to the 
drug related "White Line Fever." 

The first single from the album, "Key Largo," 
which was released in January, has been steadily 
climbing all pop chart listings and has reached top 
ten standings. The next scheduled release, the title 
track, has the potential for an equally successful 

So if you're tired of hearing Joan Jett and want 
to hear something a little on the mellow side, give 
this debut album an ear. It's one you'll want to hear

to our 

Graduating Seniors! 

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


A-Day is that magical event that carries the power to motivate students to their 
full creative capability, raise college patriotism, and even cancelclasses on the 
preceding Friday. A-Day is as much a part of DVC as the Allman Building or 
Lake Archer. It is such an establishment at our school that it can easily be taken 
for granted. The many hours of work behind each project and exhibit are not 
always visible to the visitors on that single weekend . Also not visible is the history 
and development of this unique event, which began 34 years ago. 

It was in 1949 that the idea of A-Day was conceived. There were only 246 
men enrolled at the school, which was still known as the National Agricultural 
College. A-Day was sponsor.ed by the Dairy Society and most activities were 
centered around the agricultural clubs. This first A-Day was dedicated to Dr. 
Work, who had been the college President since 1946. Mr. Larsson, our 
Registrar, was a student at that time. He remembers that the Poultry Club and 
the Kennel Club were very active in the organization of the early A-Days. 
Livestock was shown inside the Allman Building, which now serves as a post 
office and lecture hall. The college was particularly proud of its dairy herd and 
Black Percheron draft horses. A greased pig contest and log sawing contest were 


I'll see ewe at A- Dai/! 

both popular. The exhibits were designed to attract farmers, much like the Penn- 
sylvania Farm Show. Local farm businesses accepted the opportunity to display 
their products. The farm machinery exhibit was a big part of early A-Days. 

This was a transitional period for the school, rebounding from the depressed 
operation during WWII, which almost forced its closing. The school was growing 
and changing rapidly, and the students felt they needed to bring this new image 
to the public. Dr. Feldstein recalls that the idea was entirely developed by the 
students, with the full support of the faculty and administration. This important 
aspect of A-Day has remained, as A-Day is still a student- sponsored event. 

Many other precedents were set at that first A-Day. Dr. Cragle, now Director 
of the Agricultural Experimental Station of the University of Illinois, was the stu- 
dent chairman of the first A-Day committee. His committee decided to operate 
the event under a unified budget, which has proved to be most successful. Dr. 
Cragle said that one of his most diffkult tasks was choosing a name for the 
festivity. Nominations were accepted, and A-Day (standing for Agricultural Day) 
was chosen. 

Over the years, A-Day has changed to reflect the development of the college. 
The attendees changed from area farmers to an urban family-oriented group, 
mostly friends and relatives of the students. Consequently, farmer-oriented ex- 
hibits were de-emphasized, while activities such as hay rides and children's ex- 
hibits became more popular. A-Day may be the college's best method of 
recruiting students for the future. 

Attendance has been increasing steadily since the 1949 A-Day. This 34th an- 
nual festivity should attract between 30,000 and 50,000 people, depending 
mostly on the weather. 

The biggest problem in recent years has been providing parking spaces to ac- 
commodate the large crowds. This has been partially alleviated by an arrange- 
ment with Central Bucks High School to use their parking lot. The college pro- 
vides visitors with a shuttle bus to and from this parking area. 

One final comment expressed by all those questioned who had witnessed the 
early A-Days referred to the increasing commercialization of the event. The early 
A-Days were not run as fundraisers. The money taken in was used only to offset 
the cost of the exhibit. But the college has changed very much in the past 34 
years. A-Day is now the main source of funds for the many clubs who contribute 
to its operation. A-Day has become a mini-fair, complete with cotton candy, 
pony rides, and a big-top tent. 

The outstanding efforts of this year's students should make this A-Day the best 
ever! •

The Year of Dining in Review 

by Mike Jaskolka 

This year I had the pleasure of visiting many fine 
restaurants in the Bucks County area. Most of your 
choices of which restaurant to dine depends on 
your taste in foods and the size of your pocketbook. 
Prices shouldn't scare you away from dining out, 
because there are many fine eating establishments 
that offer good food at an affordable price. Bucks 
County has some of the best restaurants in Penn- 
sylvania, most of these are in the form of country 
inns and old historical taverns. My favorite restau- 
rant of the year was the inn at Phillips Mill, not 
only does it have a warm country atmosphere, but 
excellent French cuisine. A meal for two will range 
from $30 to $40. The best inexpensive restaurant is 
the Golden Lights Restaurant, they serve very 
good Chinese food, and two people can dine for 
; under $10. This guide is just an aid in choosing a 
restaurant, your tastes in food will dictate your 
favorite, but here is a list of mine. 

Expensive ($25 - $40 for two people) 

Boston Sea Party 

It offers a lavish seafood buffet from Caviar, 
Oyster's Rockefeller, Alaskan King Crab, and a rich 
Cheese Cake, just to mention a small portion of this 
seafood feast. A main entree is also included: a 
whole Maine Lobster or New York Strip Steak. The 
entire meal costs 19.95 per person, and it's all you 
can eat. Reservations are required and their hours 
vary, so call prior to going. To get to the Boston 
Sea Party, take 202 north to 61 1, south on 61 1 for 
about 10 miles, and it's on the right. 


This is a nice place to go for dinner before taking 
in the show at The Bucks County Playhouse. They 
offer a continental cuisine of Scallops Farace, Broc- 
coli and Fontina Lasagna, and Jumbo Shrimp Tem- 
pura. Each dish here is purchased separately, so 
the price for a complete meal can be as much as 
$17 or as little as $10, but it't well worth it. No 
reservations required, and the menu changes night- 
ly. Havana's also offers live entertainment on some 
nights. In addition, they make great Strawberry 
Daiquiries. From the college, take 202 north into 
New Hope, turn right on River Road for about 1 
mile, and Havana's is one the right. 

Riverfront Dinner Theater 

If you would like a change of pace, and would 
like to see a good show along with a good meal, 
then try this. They have an all you can eat buffet. 
Some of the choices of food are Chicken L'Orange, 
Seafood Newberg, Clam and Oyster bar, and Roast 
Beef. There is an ample amount of food, but only 
moderate in quality. The show playing there now is 
"Fiddler on the Roof." Reservations are required 
and the prices vary each day; on Friday nights its 
costs $17.95. To get to the Riverfront Dinner The- 
ater take 611 south to Vine Street in Philadelphia, 
turn left on Vine and follow it to Delaware Avenue, 
from Delaware Avenue turn right on Poplar Street, 
and the restaurant is on the right, it takes one hour 
to get there from the school, and get there half an 
hour early to get a good seat for the show. 

Coach Inn 

The Coach Inn is a unique dining experience, 
where two people can enjoy a meal in a private din- 
ing car, with treatment fitting a king and queen. 
You dine in an actual railroad dining car. They offer 
many specials, as well as regular meat and seafood 
dishes. Reservations are requested, and the price 
for a dinner for two is about $30. Take 611 south to 
the Pennsylvania Turnpike, exit at Fort Washington 
(exit 26), follow that road to Commerce Drive. Just 
look for 3 railroad dining cars together. 

The Water Wheel Inn 

A very warm and elegant restaurant located in an 
old inn built around 1714. Traditional American 
fare, served in cozy, firelight surroundings make for 
a unique dining experience. They offer an Ameri- 

can and Italian cuisine: Veal Parmigiana, Flounder 
Varralo, and Surf and Turf. Meals range in price 
from $7.95 to $16, and reservations are requested. 
The food is very good and this is one of the better 
restaurants in this area. A wise choice for A- Day. 
Follow 611 north to Route 313, turn right on to 
Route 313 (just past Conti's), take the very first left 
on to Old Easton Road for about 2 miles, the Inn is 
on the left. 

The Inn at Phillips Mill 

This is my favorite of all the restaurants visited. It 
was a most memorable evening. They serve a French 
cuisine with dishes such as Chicken Claude, Steak 
au Poivre, Lamb Chops Tarragon, and Duck with 
Mandeira sauce. They have a very good French 
Onion Soup. Reservations arc required and proper 
attire is requested. May I say that the food is ex- 
cellent and it has an atmosphere to match. A place 
to take a very special person ; prices about $20 per 
person. Follow 202 south to New Hope, turn left 
on River Road, follow River Road for about 5 miles 
and the Inn at Phillips Mill is on the right. You may 
bring your own spirits and wine for the evening. 

Moderate Prices ($10 to $25 for two) 

Seafood Shanty 

"One nibble and you're hooked," and I sure am 
hooked on this place. I go here often for a good 
seafood dinner and reasonable prices too. They of- 
fer such dishes as Fish & Chips, Rhode Island Clam 
Bake, Fried Stuffed Shrimp, Boiled Seafood Sam- 
pler, and many more. No reservations are re- 
quired, but get there early (before 6:30 p.m.) to 
avoid lines. The prices range from $5.95 to $12.95 
for the main entrees. The Seafood Shanty is lo- 
cated in the Kings Shopping Plaza on 611 south, 
about 7 miles from the college on the left hand side 
of the road. Dinner is served till 10:00 p.m. on 
weeknights, and midnight on Friday and Saturday. 

Cock 'n Bull 

This is dining in a colonial atmosphere with a 
good selection of main entrees. A meal for two will 
run about $25; some of the entrees include Virginia 
Baked Ham, Veal Cutlet Parmigiana, and Blue 
Fish. They have a large selection of breads, and a 
good salad bar. The Cock 'n Bull is open for lunch 
and dinner, reservations are requested. It is located 
in Peddler's Village, 10 miles north on 202 in 


If your looking for a restaurant with a family at- 
mosphere, good food, and reasonable prices, this is 
it. The food is good and plenty for all, a few of their 
specialties include Boneless Brook Trout, Roast 
Turkey, Veal Parmigiana, and New England Fried 
Clams. Reservations are not required but advisable. 
They also offer lunch too. To get to Boswell's from 
school, follow 202 north about 7 miles, to Route 
413, take 413 south 1/8 mile, turn left on Route 
263, Boswell's will be on your left about 300 yards. 

Lambertville House 

Follow the trail of the early stage coach riders and 
stop and eat where they did. A very good meal is 
awaiting you there. There is a choice of Stuffed 
Breast of Chicken, Filet of Flounder, Sauteed 
Tenderloin Tips, and few more choices. No reser- 
vations required, but advisable. Some nights a 
variety of entertainment is offered. A Sunday 
brunch is also offered. Prices range from $7 to $13 
for a meal. From school take 202 north to Route 
179 into New Hope. Cross the Delaware River 
Bridge and about 1/8 mile on the left is the 
Lambertville House. 

Missy's Inn 

A relatively new restaurant in Doylestown with a 
Victorian flare. This place is quite an eye catcher 
and has a nice atmosphere. The food is good but it 
doesn't have much pizzaz. They offer such dishes 
as Broiled Filet of Flounder, Veal Parmiginia, Filet 
Mignon, and a host of salads. This is a good place 
to go for lunch, and it is fair for dinner. Missy's Inn 
is located on North Main Street in Doylestown. 

Least Expensive ($8 to $12 for two) 

Joe's Pizza 

This is a very popular restaurant and pizzeria of 
the college. The quality has gone down a little since 
last year, but they still serve good food. Joe's offers 
a special that attracts many people, like 3 pizza's for 
the price of two on Monday and Tuesday nights. 
Other meals include Lasaqna, Antipasto, Eqqplant 

Parmiginia, and many more Italian delights. Joe's is 
open 5 days a week till 11:00 p.m., and on Friday 
and Saturday till midnight. Joe's is located on N. 
Easton Highway just past Dunkin Doughnuts, or 
just ask any student. 

The Golden Lights Restaurant 

Looking for a real good Chinese restaurant, well 
I found one for you. They offer many different 
styles of Chinese cooking: Cantonese, Szechuan, 
and Polynesian, each with its own distinct taste. 
Dishes vary in price from $5 to $6 per meal, there 
are some that are higher but they are specialty 
meals. Your meal includes Chinese tea, Chinese 
chips with sweet 'n sour and mustard dip, dessert, 
your main course, soup, and a fortune cookie. I 
guarantee you will be very pleased with this restau- 
rant. Reservations are not requirecl and they serve 
lunch as well as dinner. From the college take 611 
south for about 9 miles and it's on the left side of the 
road just prior to the Turnpike entrance. 

The Skyline Restaurant Bar 

This is mostly a sandwich and pizza place. They 
are known for their specials on Thursday night for a 
large pizza and a pitcher of beer for $6.95. They 
also have Honey Dipped Chicken. Hot Roast Beef 
Platters, and a large selection of sandwiches. Most 
meals range in price from $1.50 to $4. They do 
make a very good pizza. This is a good place to take 
a large group for a night out. The Skyline is located 
south on 202 about 6 mies from school in the Chal- 
font Shopping Center. 

H.A. Winston's 

A turn-of-the-century atmosphere makes HA. 
Winston's in Warrington a place where a group of 
people can enjoy lunch or a light dinner. Their 
specialty is the Gourmet Burgers, they also have 
Shrimp, Italian, and Seafood dishes.. The cost per 
meal can vary from $3.50 to $8. No reservations 
are required and the dress is casual. They make 
good daiquiries and other specialty, drinks. HA. 
Winston's is located in the Warrington Mews Shop- 
ping Plaza on 611 north, about 5 miles from the 
college on the left. 

Most of the meals include a salad, hot roll or 
bread, choice of potato, and vegetables. You have 
to pay extra for your beverages, but remember if 
you're on a tight budget water is free. Desserts are 
not included in most of the dinner entrees, but they 
are a must in some restaurants, especially if they 
bake their own. Your waitress or waiter works hard 
and deserve some gratuity. It is proper to leave be- 
tween 15% and 20% of the bill for a tip. I just want 
to say again that this is a guide to some of the 
restaurants in the area, there are many other fine 
restaurants in the area. 1 hope you enjoying eating 
in these restaurants as much as my dates and I did. 
"Bon Appetit"! 

From the Editors', 

This edition marks the end of the year for the 
Ram Pages, and the end of our term as editors. In 
our twenty-two issues this past school year we have 
attempted to spread the news and provide some 
chewing gum for the lighter tastes of life at D.V.C. 
It was a successful and highly rewarding effort. 

Congratulations to the entire student staff for a 
job well done! Our sincere thanks to our advisors 
and printers for making this editors' job easy. 

We are pleased to announce the editors for the 
next school year will be Jeff Montagnoli and Jerry 

Best wishes in future publications!

March was highlighted by the Dance Marathon to 
benefit M.S., the trouble with the college's orchid 
collection, and a night trip to the Atlantic City 
casinos where students returned with a lot, a little, 
or just themselves. 

DVC made headlines at the spectacular Philadel- 
phia Flower Show. The college won 4 awards as 
students in the O.H. department really put it all 
together to give us a great exhibit!

Dish, Dish, If s Your Tuition! 

by John Herring 

"Please note — food, beverages, china, silver- 
ware, or any other equipment should not be re- 
moved from the dining hall," or so says the plaque 
on the dining hall exit door. "Borrowing" utensils, 
as many students see it, is not a new problem, but 
the incidence of walking dinnerware has significant- 
ly increased this year. What most students fail to 
realize though, is that whenever a dish goes past 
the "Please note ..." plaque, the cost of their 
tuition goes up. 

According to Mr. Moyer, Food Service Director, 
a large part of the missing dish problem came from 
the addition of the name brand soda machines; he 
feels that the popular drinks make students who are 
leaving more apt to take a drink for the walk home. 
With that drink, of course, goes a .30C glass. 

The glasses, however, are not the only pieces 
costing a bundle. Remember the trays and what 
great sleds they made? Well, they run 4.16 a 
piece. The dinner plates, too, the ones that are so 
good as plant saucers, 1.69 each. Then there is 
the coffee cup and saucer for when friends drop by, 
2.19 a set. Yeah, megabucks. Here's what every- 
thing else runs: 

small plate 80 

small bowl 70 

coffee cup 1.46 

cereal bowl .... 1.27 
soup bowl 1.27 

teaspoon 28 

fork 28 

knife 41 

soupspoon 24 

salad bowl 44 

Folks who eat a couple of meals a day, listen up. 
Any ideas how much the china and silverware you 
use each day amounts to? Fifteen? Twenty dollars? 
Wrong. The average person uses over thirty three 
dollars worth of dishes each day. Even if only a 
small percentage of people take something at each 
meal, it is easy to see how fast the money in lost 
china adds up. 

Plans are now in the making for the reclamation 
of some of the lost dishware. Working with the resi- 
dence life office, the food committee plans to have 
"no questions asked" return boxes on each floor, 
which will give students the chance to return any 
dishes they may have taken throughout the year. 
However, this or any other plan for that matter, will 
never be worthwhile unless those guilty of stocking 
their room with the dinner plates, glasses, and 
other utensils realize what an influence they are 
making on the cost of being on the dining hall plan. 

Construction has begun on the horse barn at Farm 3. 


As always April starts with a joke, Warren Lewis 
depicted Penndot's 611 bypass through our college 
campus, the construction should be completed by 
next (April Fool's Day) . 

Better security for women came into the highlight 
of the month . The new lock system came as a result 
of a decision of the administration to upgrade the 

Also the effect of federal budget cutbacks on stu- 
dent financial aid programs plus what Del Val is do- 
ing about it to create new programs to help the 
financial needs of the students. 

The end of April came into bloom with 'renais- 
sance of the Doors' in concert during the Superstars 
weekend. Superstars proved again to be exciting 
and challenging, in addition, the phonathon '82 
total came to $101,064, quite a success with over 
100 student and alumni volunteers participating. 


Dr. Tibor Pelle, Professor of Animal Science at 
Delaware Valley College, announced the selection 
of four Animal Husbandry students as recipients of 
the American Society of Animal Science Awards. 

The honor goes to students in Animal Science 
who demonstrate outstanding academic achieve- 
ments, have a strong interest in Animal Science, 
and who plan to enter careers in this important 
profession . 

The American Society of Animal Science is the 
main and only representative body in the United 
States for people in the animal industry. 

The award recipients are: Brenda Landis, senior; 
David Hoick, senior; Wendy Hunter, junior; and 
Steven Trostle, a sophomore. 


This letter is written to publicly recognize one 
man who has always been of help to the multitude 
of business students who have attended this col- 
lege. He has always made the impossible seem 
possible by shedding his smile on the subject. This 
man is Mr. George West. I am speaking for myself, 
but I feel that the entire business student body feels 
the way I do about this man. 

I greatly admire this man for the way he handles 
himself. If tensions are thick in the room, he always 
seems to ge the class laughing; if a student has a 
problem, he always seems to help in some way (the 
perpetual line to his office is proof). Although his 
schedule is hectic, he finds the time to talk to 
students as a friend. 

Speaking as the Business Club President, he has 
always been of help when we have run into a pro- 
blem He has been actively involved with the club, 
and for this we are very appreciative. 

I am glad I had this opportunity to write about 
this man, for his work and achievements should be

Green Dot Day — 
Came and Went 

by Bud Hulshiifer 

1 guess you all want to know what green dot day 
meant. To tell you the truth the Board of American 
Colleges don't know either. I asked some people 
what it meant to them. Here are some of their 

"Could it have been to show school spirit?" 

"I don't know!" 

"It had something to do with A-Day." 

"Why do people keep asking me? Isn't it obvious 

that it means we're entering a new cold war?" 

"I'm doing it because my friends are." 

"It means the Argentinians on the Falkland Islands 

are going to win this one for the Gipper." 

"Green is beautiful." 

"St. Patrick's Day has been moved to April 26." 

"It's a radiation detector. It turns blue if there is 

radiation present." 

"It's a master plan to take over the world by Ronnie 
and Nan." 

"Chlorophyll is the major religion of plants." 

"The Leprechaun's are invading Poland." 

No, none of these rumors are true. In fact, there 
is no real significance to Green Dot Day. Happy 
April Fool's, a bit late!

In mid-October, we celebrated our annual Home- 
coming weekend. A pep rally on Friday night was 
followed by the parade in Doylestown. Marc Howard 
from channel 6 news led an array of floats, spirit 
cars, and club queens down Main Street. Home- 
coming queen this year was Gwen Stauffer from 
the Landscape-Nursery Club. Block and Bridle 
took first in the floats and the Floral Society had the 
winning spirit car, Elson Hall, redecorated this year 
with women occupants, won the dorm decorating 
contest. At the football game F.D.U. was smashed 
54-7 and Al Applegate was awarded the 1st Sidney 
"Bruno" Brunwaser '20 Award for the Homecom- 
ing games M.V.P. The soccer team also won over 
Kings College 3-L The weekend ended with a 
dance featuring STOP. 

October came to a ghostly end. as it always does, 
with Halloween and our Halloween dance. Bud 
Hulshizer wrote on 'Halloween Humor' and our 
Photo of the Week depicted a not so humorous 
message to Coach Wilson on the football field. A lit- 
tle round-up goes a long way, Coach. 

Highlights on entertainment for the month were 
Steve Landesburg and the Pure Prairie League 
concert. Mi'ne Jaskolka took us to the Copper 
Door, H.A. Winston's, and the Water Wheel Inn in 
his column. 

Fall sports had their highlights too. Mark Tank- 
ersly set a 188-yard school record in Football. The 
cross country team won seven meets. Volleyball 
finished their season with a 2-9 record and the Girls 
Cross Country finished second in the P.A.i.A.W. 

As a halfway point in the fall semester. October 
kept us pretty busy.

Deb Wenger and Donna Lee Lornbardi during 
Saturday's parade through Do{;lestown. 


Among the biggest news for the month was Jim 
Parsons winning the M.A.C. cross country title 
event. He outran the competition in the 8000 
meter race and made Delaware Valley history. 

Where Saturday night entertainment is concern- 
ed, the student government tried a new twist to 
their dance: a punk dance. The evening was very 
successful. The true colors of Del Val's punkers 
shone through. 

This month, the Ran) Pages, after much contro- 
versy over a letter to the editors, adopted a new 
editorial policy. The new policy should prevent 
such controversy in the future. 

Flowers were also a big topic for the month. The 
Block Memorial Chapel on campus and the Fonthill 
Museum were the sites where these arrangements 
could be viewed. The floral design class brought 
much color to the Chapel and, during one week- 
end, displayed throughout the Fonthill Museum the 
successful effort of their floral display talents. Also 
at the Museum on Saturday were performances by 
DVC's Madrigal Singers and the Recorder Consort. 

Vandalism was another topic for the month. Two 
students reported their views on vandalism, the 
types of vandalism occuring around campus and 
what could be done about it. 

DVC's sports were also spotlighted later in the 
month. This time football was the team and, by 
defeating Susquehanna, the Aggies won their se- 
cond consecutive Northern Division title. They 
finished the season with an overall record of 8-2. 
the most wins in the school's football history. 

Also in sports that month: 

— the Aggies had an 8-6 victory over Mansfield 

— a great cross country race was run at Allentown 
College where Jim Trainer. Jim Parsons, and 
Rich Weaver tied for first place. 

— Women's Field Hockey finished the season with 
a 5-2-5 record. Diane Bradley was voted MVP. 

— the Aggies pulled a 14-10 win against Moravian. 

— Jim Parsons traveled to Wisconsin to participate 
in Division III National Championships. 

— In Women's Cross Country. Jeanne Cranney 
finished 7th in MAC's and 11th in regional com- 
petition but missed qualifying for nationals by 1 

Also among the November highlights was DVC's 
4th Annual Variety Show. Many excellent perfor- 
mances were viewed by the many spectators of the 
event. Craig Edgerton won first in the Arts category 
with Eric Pyle and Paul Benson in second. Winning 
both first and second in the Comedy category was 
Greg Wolek. 

Brunwasser '20 Award was presented to A/ 
Applegate at the Homecowing Da\; game. 


by Bud Hulshizer 

There was very little activity in January of '82 
mainly because we were all trying to get back in 
the groove after Christmas ^ jcation. Stir Crazy 
played at the 99C movie as well as the Little 
Rascals Film Festival, Steve Coffee played at the 
Coffee House sponsored by the Student Govern- 
ment. The D.J, Dance was sightly less than suc- 
cessful. We saw the return of the wrestling and 
basketball teams. But the most important thing to 
remember about January was the freezing cold 
weather. It certainly will be remembered as the cold- 
est winter we have had. Ice. ice, ice everywhere 
nd people were proving that it was slippery. 




by W.L. 

The matmen led by MAC champs Tony Novak 
and Tony Tarsi wrapped up a super season with a 
record of 15-1 and an MAC Championship title. 

In Men's Basketball, the season was highlighted 
by a super shooter named Jay Nichols. The senior 
captains Gary Ulrich and Mark Tymes had very 
good seasons. Women's Basketball is also coming 
on in these last few years. Good job Sandy, Sherry, 
Patti, Marcia, Missy, and all of the rest of the team. 
You are all winners no matter what the score is.

Residents Move Into D.V.C. 

Aggies Psyched For 1st Game 


The Delaware Valley College Cross Country 
Team extends an open invitation to anyone who 
might be interested in running cross country this 
fall. The College offers both a women's and a men's 
varsity cross country program, and although prior 
running experience is sometimes helpful, ci signifi- 
cant number of varsity runners began their running 
careers here at D.V.C. 

Over 40 students completed the 1981 season 
with both the ladies' and men's team compiling win- 
ning records. Outstanding for the season was senior 
Jim Parsons who established a new course record, 
won the Middles Atlantic Conference Champion- 
ship, and who finished second in the N.C.A.A. 
regional meet. Two returning senior runners also 
won conference championship medals. Rich 
Weaver finished ninth; he will be co-captain of the 
1982 men's team along with junior Ed Kuri. Jeanne 
Cranney finished seventh and she will be co- 
captain of the 1982 women's team along with 
Gail Keleher. 

If you think that you might be interested in run- 
ning cross country here at Del Val. you are urged to 
report to the lobby of the James Work Gymnasium 
between 4:00 and 4:15 p.m. and ask for Coach 

How can I go to Philadelphia? Or New York? Is 
there a bus that runs from Doylestown to Harrisburg? 
Where is the nearest Gino's? Can I walk to the 
movies from the D.V.C. campus? 

For answers to these and other questions, stop in

Nothing's Changed . . . 

By Bud Hulshizer 

On the first day of my summer vacation, 1 woke 
up. I sat up in bed. stared out of my bedroom 
window, and my pillow beckoned me to return. 1 

Soon 1 felt something wet nudge my elbow. Then 
it jumped up in bed with me and started licking my 

"Abby. stop it!" Abby is my family's pet pup. This 
is the process by which she always gets me up in the 
morning. Nothing's changed. 

1 heard the familiar pop of the television being 
turned on. 1 got up and went into the living room. 
Abby took the liberty of sleeping in my place. The 
television blared with David Hartman's greetings. 
My mother sat in a chair, entranced by his voice. 
Nothing's changed. 

I bid good morning and went to the kitchen to 
find breakfast. Dishes were still in the sink since my 
brother didn't do them the night before. Opening 
the refrigerator door. I spied the same food com- 
mon to our household. Nothing's changed. 

I don't know why I felt this way. I had no idea. 
Maybe because 1 had expected something different. 
But, why should anything have changed? Perhaps 1 
felt I was the prodigal son returning home. 
Something like that, but not quite the same. It was 
conceivable to me that 1 had indeed changed. I had 
evolved, and not digressed. 1 still can't put my 
finger on it, but I'm sure it was for the better. 

1 felt something furry rub against my ankles. I 
looked down. Cinnamon, my pet cat, purred 
delightedly at my coming home. 

Nothing's changed . . .

"Gil Eagles Show 


By Jeannie Meyer 

If you heard laughter, fun and excitement coming 
from the James Work Gymnasium on Wednesday 
night, then you missed a great show. For Mr. Gil 
Eagles presented the funniest hypnotic show ever 
presented before in the history of creation. With the 
help of twelve volunteers and a terrific audience, 
the show was a great success. 

The first half of the program gave examples of 
E.S.P. Completely blind, Mr. Gil Eagles denaon- 
strated his sixth sense, Extra Sensory Perception. 
He selected pieces of paper that contained the 
names from the audience and their questions. 
From \\\i pieces of paper, he answered the ques- 
tions with humor. 

The second half of the show, Mr. Gil Eagles used 
twelve volunteers from the lively audience and hyp- 
notized them. He showed the audience his techni- 
ques and explained what hypnotism is by examples 
from the volunteers. He took the volunteers 
through the excitement from the racetrack to the 
winning of money and other hilarous actions. 

At the end of the show. 1 was given the pleasure 
of talking to Mr. Gil Eagles. He said that he has 
been in this business for eighteen years. He enjoys 
the travels, meeting different types of people and 
just making people laugh. He wishes to say, 
"Thanks" to the Student Government of Del Val for 
inviting him back for another fun filled show. 

1 would also like to say. "Thanks" to Mr. Gil 
Eagles for a fine show and a fun evening. Special 
"Thanks" go to the Student Government for spon- 
soring the show.

By David R. DeLorenzo 

As a student, 1 1 realize that college work can get 
monotonous and sometimes can arouse anxiety. 
To alleviate this condition, 1 have found that televi- 
sion is relaxing, especially, English "comedy" 
television. Most of you have probably witnessed 
Benny Hill. His humor rests upon absurdity and of 
course, obscenity. Nevertheless, Benny Hill always 
gets a perverted laugh from his audierK:e. 

May I suggest other English favorites usually 
found on Channel 12 WHYY? One of 4hes€ is "The 
Dave Allen Show." Mr. Allen charms his audience 
with witty tales and creates much of his comedy 
through religious skepticism. Dave AHen is indeed 
the master of theobgical humor. Another more re- 
cent find, is "The Mark Russell Show." Transmitted 
via Buffalo, New York, Mark Ru^ell's unique 
musical comedy takes root in f)olitical and current 
events. He is the only comedian I've seen that per- 
forms comedy while simultaneously playing the 
piano. Mr. Russell is a pioneer in this mode of 
lyrical humor. "To the Manor Born," another 
English masterpiece, relies on extremely dry wit 
and slow-paced satire — definitely not to be 

Last but certainly not least, is "Faulty Towers." 
This uncanny show takes place in an English hotel, 
where the high-strung proprietor, Basil, sweeps the 
viewer along with fast moving slapstick. "Faulty 
Towers" is my favorite English comedy because it 
never ceases to poke fun at man's character. Per- 
haps the greatest overall attribute of English "com- 
edy" television is that it consists of so little yet has 
the capacity to give so much.

Dear Aggie, 

I am a freshmen and my roommate is a sopho- 
more. Being new to D.V.C. and living away from 
home I have many questions. Since my roommate 
has been here for a year and she is my roommate I 
thought that 1 could ask her some of these ques- 
tions. But when 1 ask her she gives me some answer 
that is usually totally wrong and I usually end up 
feeling stupid. What do I do, and how can I get 
some answers? 


Beginning of a Complex 

Dear Complex, 

Unfortunately it sounds as if your roommate has 
something against freshmen. She should remember 
that she was a freshmen last year with many of the 
same questions. There had to be someone who 
answered her questions. Maybe after this she will 
change. If not there are many willing upperclassmen 
that will help you. Or ask your R.A, that is one of 
the reasons she is there. 


Dear Aggie, 

My roommate is a smoker and I'm not. To com- 
plicate things I am allergic to the smoke and it 
makes it difficult for me to breathe. Is it wrong of me 
to ask him not to smoke in the room? 

Signed , 
Gasping for Breath 

Dear Gasping, 

If your roommate's smoking causes you medical 
problems, by all means ask him if he would kindly 
go out in the hall or outside to smoke.

Miller Hall has undergone several changes in the 
past year. The latest is the renovation of the first 
floor to accommodate the Placement Office. The 
entrance is accessible through the door facing the 
library. The purpose of the Placement Office is to 
find suitable full-time and part-time employment for 
students and graduates. Among the services pro- 
vided by the Placement Office are listings of jobs, 
workshops, personal interviews, and a resource 
library still in the process of being built. 

Upon entering the office, one notices bulletin 
boards with many full-time and part-time job possi- 
bilities. As far as part-time jobs for students are con- 
cerned, the office has been soliciting local 
businesses for opportunities. Among the jobs avail- 
able on campus are marketing and sales. 

Workshops are being organized in order to make 
job hunting easier and improve one's chances of 
being hired. The workshops will be run by profes- 
sional people in employment areas. They will touch 
upon such topics as resume writing, and interview 

In addition, the Placement Office is in the process 
of organizing personal interviews with company 
representatives and prospective employees from 
the student body and alumni. Information will be 
posted in the Placement Office and in dorms. Sign- 

up for the interview, however, is located only in the 
Placement Office. 

The Placement Office is open Monday through 
Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The staff is 
very willing to be of assistance, so be sure to take 
advantage of their aid.

Groundbreaking Ceremony 

by Martha Gehringer 

"A dream come true, a promise fulfilled, a much needed addition," all these were statements used by 
the speakers at the groundbreaking on Saturday, September 11, for the new student center. 

Warm sunshine and Dixieland music by the Philadelphia-based group. Memories, greeted more than 
300 visitors and students gathered for the festivities. Dr. Arthur Wolf, Vice President for Planning and 
Financial Affairs greeted the guests and served as master of ceremonies for the day's events. Dr. Joshua 
Feldstein, President, who was the first speaker of the afternoon, thanked all those involved in helping to 
fund the project. He also spoke on what a great asset the new center would be upon completion and 
that although the present seniors would be unable to use it prior to graduation, they would be able to 
enjoy it as alumni. This will however, benefit all succeeding classes and add a needed dimension to the 
campus life. 

Other speakers for the day included Dr. David Shapiro, Mr. Scanlon - PA Secretary of Education, 
Mr. Tasker, and H. Bruce Hellerick. Following the speeches was the grand moment of the actual 
groundbreaking. Participating in the earth moving moment were Dr. Shapiro, Dr. Feldstein, Mr. 
Scanlon, Mrs. Work, H. Bruce Hellerick, and Mr. Tasker. 

The new student center, which will be dedicated and officially opened in the fall of 1983, will provide 
more complete student services. 

Invited guests enjoined a luncheon with Dr. 
Feldstein in}mediatel\; followir^g the ceremony.

Aggies Fall Short at the End 

by Mel Balliet 

"When they (Widener) had to do it, they did it," 
exclaimed Aggie coach A! Wilson. He was referring 
to the late drive which led the Pioneers to a 10-7 
victory over the Aggies. 

The game was the season opener for both teams, 
and as expected they both made some first-game 
mistakes but it was head-to-head football through 
the first half as the defenses dominated the game. 
The Aggies did get on the scoreboard late In the first 
half on a 26-yard strike from Tom O'Neill to Dan 
Glowatski. The talley came just three plays after- 
Dave Murphy recovered a Pioneer fumble on the 
Widener 30-yard line. 

The Pioneers narrowed the gap early in the third 
period, as they took their opening drive to the Ag- 
gie fifteen before Nick Pulos kicked a 32-yard field 
goal. Neither team allowed the other to sustain a 
drive through the first three quarters but the 
Pioneer's put together the only real drive of the 
game in the fourth as they marched 80 yards aided 
by two pass interference calls, culminating in a 
nine-yard loft from quarterback Dan Guy to split 
end Bob Tranchida in the near corner of the end 

Men's Cross Country 

by Rich Weaver 

This season has started out with a bang. On 
Tuesday, 9/7, the Harriers strided out against 
Bucks County Community College in a home turf 
scrimmage meet. The men pushed through the 5 
mile course with some enormous efforts. Ken 
McDaid, our new recruited freshman, and Ed KunI, 
a veteran sophomore, tied for first place. Gary 
Kampmeyer, with some coaxing by teammate Rich 
Weaver, showed some talent by beating Bucks 
County's number 1 man. Rich has started out the 
season with an ailing leg. Next in the pack was 
Jeppe Christiansen, who surprised everyone when 
he showed up for the first tthie of the meet and 
placed 5th for the team. Our 6th and 7th placers for 
the team were Marty Kudlesky and Scott Harrison , 
both doing well on the course. Many other good 
performances were upheld by new recruited 

On Saturday, 9/11, the Harriers sprinted off to 
the Lebanon Valley Invitational for a competitive 
day. The weather was hot and muggy and the 
course was a grueling one. Delaware Valley placed 
14th among 20 schools, a respectable finish for this 
early in the season. Their next meet will be this 
Saturday at Kings College.

The Delaware Valley College soccer team travel- 
ed to Beaver College on Saturday where they com- 
peted in the Beaver Tournament. 

The Aggies tied three games in the tourney in- 
cluding two scoreless games against Williamson 
Tech. and Beaver. The Aggies also earned a 1-1 tie 
against Haverford by freshman Fred Mundt's scoring. 

Scott Ruth scored three goals while Tony Borrello 
added two and John Dull and Ken Zanzalari both 
tallied one each in a 7-0 trouncing of Northeast. 

Tomorrow's game will be at home against Scan- 
ton at 1:00 p.m.; come out and cheer our soccer 
team to victory.

zone. The second pass interference call was on a 
fourth and four that moved the ball to the twelve - 
yard line. Wilson said, "The pass interference call is 
a judgement thing, we didn't think the last one was, 
but that doesn't change anything. Pass interference 
didn't lose the ballgame for us." 

Despite the loss, the Aggies had many bright 
spots including Tom O'Neill's five passes to Dan 
Glowatski which accounted O'Neill's 107 yards. 
Fullback Nick Russo carried 13 times for 69 yards to 
lead the Aggies, while Eric Reynolds, who needs 
but 77 yards to become DVC's all-time leading 
rusher, added 51 yards to the Aggies ground attack. 

"Our kids honestly believed they could beat 
Widener today and so did I. 1 guess that's why it 
hurts so much," said Coach Wilson. The Aggies, 
although maybe disappointed, should not hang 
their heads; they played a very good game against 
last year's Division III National Champs and with 
a good season could still find themselves in the 
national limelight. 

The Aggies will travel to Albright tomorrow for a 
night game against the Lions.

Women's X-Country at the Lebanon 
Valley Invitational 

On Saturday, September 11th, seven Del Val 
women traveled to Memorial Lake State Park to 
compete in the Lebanon Valley Invitational Meet. 
The high temperature and tough competition made 
the 3. 1 mile race a real challenge. Jeanne Cranney 
rose to the challenge by finishing 26th among 155 
runners with a time of 19:56. She was followed by 
Gail Keleher (67th, 21:14), Sue Kulp (73rd, 21:26),

Ducks Donated to D.V.C. 

As many students have noticed, 
besides having many new faces here at 
D.V.C. this year, we also have many 
unique faces down at Lake Archer. To 
begin with, two special ducks called 
crested white Pekings were introduced 
by Dave Kish, a sophomore. He raised 
these ducks over the past summer from 
two weeks old. They were expensive to 
raise and as we all can see, they are truly 
unique to the sight. 

Last A-day. Dave Kish introduced 
two Peking ducks which he hatched and 
raised himself. These are also down at 
Lake Archer. 

Back in the fall of 1981 Dave Kish 
also introduced two white Chinese 
geese, which are still at Lake Archer. 
These are the two geese which make all 
the noise and would love to get a taste 
of your fingers. 

These are all domestic breeds that are 
specifically bred so they cannot fly. 
Because of this fact, people should 
kindly keep their dogs away or on a 
leash when near Lake Archer. 

Thirteen baby m^lards were hatched 
over the summer, of which there are still 
seven living there. Besides being a living 
ground for permanent ducks and geese. 
it is also a good place for geese migrating 
southward. Just this past week there 
have heeu great flocks of Canadian 
geese stopping for a few days to rest. 
The geese's diet consists mostly of grass 
and corn, which is one reason you see 
many geese in D.V.C.'s corn fields. 

The mess which has been found lately 
on the banks of Lake Archer can be 
blamed mostly on the Canadian geese. 
So the banks should clear up soon after 
the geese move southward. 

One might ask what happens to Dave 
Kish's geese over the wiiiter? Dave 
explains that% "the geese aiKl ducks 
cross route 202 on their own to join 
their friends over at the trailer park." 
Located there is a pond where they stay 
for the winter and the people that live 
there care and feed for them. 

Thanks to I^ave Kish's efforts, we can 
all enjoy some wild life at our own Lake 
Archer. Let"s all protect and take care of

Just what does "Paladin" mean? "A 
champion of a medieval prince... an 
outstanding protagonist of a cause" 
...this is Webster's. definition. My defini- 
tion? "An outstanding band, possessing 
tremendous talent and magnetism!" 

I walked into the gym Saturday night, 
expected a typical D.V.C. dance — only 
a handful of people and loud, distracting 
music — but 1 was pleasantly surprised. 
Although the band was hampered by 
sound mixing difficulties and got off to a 
late start, band members definitely made 
up for it, and as the number of people 
began to grow. 1 realized that this dance 
would be different. 

"Paladin" covered songs by artists from 
all areas of the music industry, from rock 
to oldies to disco, and I was also pleasant- 
ly surprised by their brass section, which 
added an air of "big band" professional- 
ism to their stage presence. Highlights 
from their first set included "Gimme 
Some Lovin" (Blues Brothers). Alive 
Again" (Chicago). "Dependin" on You" 
(Doobie Brothers) . "Any Way You Want 
It" (Journey), and "September" (Earth. 
Wind & Fire) . Now that's diversified' They 
openeci their second set with 'Heart- 
breaker" (Pi\\ Benetar) . and followed with 
songs by Springsteen, Genesis, and The 
Rolling Stones, to name a few. An added 
highlight to their third set was an original 
tune "Looking Ahead." which was quite 
professional; other songs included "My 
Old School" (Steely Dan) and "Old Time 
Rock and Roll" (Bob Seger) . The final set 
included a block of Billy Joel, another 
original "One Way Flight." and they closed 
with "2.5 or (■> to 4" (Chicago) . An encore 
was demanded and "Paladin" willingly 
obliged . 

I spoke with several of the band 
members, and found them to be easy- 
going, fun-loving, and interesting. The 
members of "Paladin" include; Jim Taylor 
(keyboards and vocals). Pat Mackin 
(trumpet). Greg Velosky (guitar and 
vocals) . Jerome Velosky (sax) , Tom Har-

Sooner or later, you will find yourself 
looking for a car. Since a new auto is 
out of the price range of most students, 1 
shall discuss the selection of a used car. 
If you adhere to the following guide- 
lines, you should avoid purchasing a 

My hrst suggestion is to avoid used 
car dealers because you have no knowl- 
edge of the car's prior history. In most 
cases, a dealer will not disclose this in- 
formation. At the very best, a dealer 
sells abused trade-ins at high prices. 
Your best bet is to deal with a private 
owner, preferably someone you know, 
or to locate an ad in the newspaper. 
This way you can judge the owner's

According to their light man. Ned Mackin. 
all but Craig are C.B. East graduates 
They've been working together for about 
four years. They recently recorded four of 
their originals, so be on the lookout. 

After the dance. I spoke with several 
people who helped "pack" the dance 
floor and asked for their opinions of 
"Paladin." Most were in agreement that 
the music was very good . but also felt that 
it "drowned out " the words, and that it 
was difficult to hear the singer's voice at 
times. Everyone agreed that with a bit 
more amplification on the vocals, there 
would be no stooping "Paladin." 

Overall. I'd say the dance was the most 
successful hel'.i ^o far. and I'll be looking 
forward to a repeat performance by

I have discovered that some of the 
ducks at Lake Archer have fallen prey 
to the animals in Ullman second. 

The ducks and geese at the lake are 
for the enjoyment of all and not the 
selfish palliatine of a few. 

I know the dining room doesn't spe- 
cialize in elegant cuisine, but your 
method to improve your diet is some- 
what barbaric. 

Dave Kish was generous enough to 
donate these ducks which took a lot of 
time and money to raise. 

It's sad to think that at any time one of 
these animals could be snuffed out of 
exsistence by a few sadistic individuals, 
when they can remain here for the en- 
joyment of all.

On Saturday the Aggies traveled to 
Albright for a rare night game against the 
Lions Following a very close first half the 
Aggies, with the help of a good fourth 
quarter, pulled but a 23-7 victory. 

With 2:24 remaining in the first quarter 
the Aggies took a 2 lead, when a high 
snap sailed over the punters head and out 
of the end zone. 

Ray Jenkins gave the Aggies their next 
scoring opportunity when he recovered a 
fumble at the Lions" eighteen yard line. 
Nick Russo got the score on a seven yard 
run with 14:16 left in the half. Bob 
Hudoka gave the Aggies a 9-0 lead with 
one of his three PAT's of the day. 

Albright's Chris Arnout scored from 
fourteen yards out and with John Meil's 
point after the Lions narrowed the gap to 
9-7 by the half. 

The Aggies finally took control of the 
game in the fourth quarter. Cosmo 
Losco's touchdown capped a ten play, 
fifty-six yard drive with 13:42 to play. 
Nick Russo put the game out of reach 
with his second touchdown at the 8:49 
mark of the fourth quarter, making the 
final score Del Vai 23. Albright 7. 

"1 was just happy to get out of there 
with a win." said Coach Al Wilson, who 
credited the Lions front line but called 
their depth "suspect," and said. "We just 
wore them down." 

The Aggies will be at home tomorrow 
for a tough game against the Upsala

Women's Cross Country: 

by Gail Koleher 

The women's cross country team 
added two more victories to their record 
by outrunning Kings 24-35 and over- 
powering Wilkes 15-50 on Saturday. 
September 18 on the Kings' course. 
Senior Jeanne Cranney placed first 
overall, covering the 2.9 miles winding 
course in 17:52. Freshman Chris Frazer 
(19:37) and senior Gail Keleher (19:38) 
came in next working closely on Kings 
second runner. Junior Brenda Givler 
out-kicked a Kings runner for a good 
finish (20:15). Aggies fifth runner was 
senior Lauren Clawson (20:43) 
Sophomore Kim Hack (20:49) and 
seniors Liz Trimble (21:04) and Jean 
Toutkovshian (21:21) were next for Del 
Val. Saturday was a rewarding day for 
freshmen runners. Donna Hoover

character as well as his car. Note the 
owner's appearance and the condition 
of his/her property. For example, is his 
car kept in a cluttered garage? Believe 
me, these signs are most helpful in 
determining whether the owner is con- 
scientious or not. Be sure to ask for the 
owner's previous repair bills. Also, ask 
him if he keeps a list of regular mainte- 
nance, such as oil changes, tuneups. 
front-end alignment, and repairs. After 
you have given the automobile a good 
visual inspection, take it for a road test. 
It is crucial to drive the car for at least 
twenty minutes! This is important 
because you must experience the car's 
handling on all types of road conditions. 
You should take the car on a highway, 
in traffic, up steep grades, and down 
hills. Observe the car's performance and 
listen for any noises! 

Finally, make sure to have the car 
thoroughly inspected, and road tested by 
your reputable mechanic. The inspec 
tion will probably cost $20.00 to 
$35.00, but is well worth the price. 
After the inspection, privately ask your 
mechanic whether the price is ok. He 
can advise you on what the automobile 
is worth and whether it's worth buying.

On Saturday, September 1<S. the 
men's cross country team went forth to 
Wilkes-Barre, PA. to compete against 
three schools; Kings College. Wilkes 
College, and the unexpected arrival. 
Misercondia College. Under an overcast 
sky and mild winds the harriers made 
yet another attempt to prove themselves 
as one of the top MAC competitors in 
the league. The course is a series of 
repetitive loops through the town park, 
laid mostly on flat terrain, giving good 
cause for a fast race. The first mile was 
timed at 4:57. very quick for this early 
in the season. With the following results 
and good performances, the harriers 
defeated Wilkes College (21 34). Miser 
condia College (20-41). and succumb

Dear Aggie

Dear Aggie, 

1 am writing to find out why there is no Gay Organization at this college? I'm 
sure there are many gay people who attend this college, who feel as 1 do. You 
probably ask. "why don't you start one?" For the obvious reason no one else 
has. unless there is an organization which I am not aware of. 



Dear Anonymous, 

1 am aware that there are gay organizations on larger and more populated 
campuses around the country. D.V.C. is a small college and up to this point no

Scranton University is noted for its 
soccer teams. Delaware Valley heatl soc 
cer coach Bob Marshall found out why 
when his team suffered an 8-0 shutout at 
the hands of Scranton Saturday. 

"They're in a whole other league. " said 
Marshall, the Aggies" first year coach 
"We couldn't do much against them " 

The lone bright spot in the game was 
the netminding of junior Suren 
Pakhtigian, who stopped twenty-five 
shots attempted by Scranton Against Up- 
sala in the season -opener three days 
earlier, Suren registered fifteen saves 

In that game against Upsala. a ,3 1 
defeat, John Dull tallied the only goal for 
the Aggies. 

The Aggies will host Widener tomor

Cutbacks, the headlines strike fear into 
the hearts and wallets of many a college 
student. For some a cut in grants means 
the end of an education; for others it 
simply means the end of a free ride. This 
is basically where the Reagan cuts in 
financial aid were intended to hit home, 
cut the fat so to speak. At DVC, how- 
ever, the cuts in financial aid to students 
went relatively unnoticed. 

The main programs affected were 
guaranteed loans and Social Security 
benefits for students; Social Security 
being the most critical cutback, resulted 
in some students being ineligible. The 
college supplemented these cuts by ex- 
panding the campus employment. Stu- 
dents are working in areas they never did 
before, such as security and mainten- 
ance. They also picked up the college 
grant program, basing this on need and 

The college, seeing the cuts coming, 
did a lot to boost its programs and 
developed funds. 

The national Reagan programs are de- 
signed to help the most needy students 
get a college education. The Pell Grant, 
in particular, is targeted to help those 
students whose families cam less than 
$12,000 per year. Grant aid is not meant 
to cover all college costs but is expected 
to be combined with a reasonable contri- 
bution from the student's family and indi- 
vidual self-help, generally in the form of 
loans, private scholarships, and work. 

Another type of student financial as- 
sistance is the College Work-Study Pro- 
gram. Designed to provide on- or off- 
campus jobs for undergraduate and 
graduate students who need financial as- 
sistance, Work-Study is usually managed 
by the college financial aid administrator 
Some 950,000 students will receive 
$528 million under this program in 

A great deal of publicity has been gen- 
erated lajjgly on Federal student loans, 
particularly the National Direct Student 
Loan Program Although all colleges do 
not participate in the NDSL program. 
3.340 of them do. This program makes 
available low interest (5 percent) loans 
that students must begin repaying six 
months after completing school (either 
by graduating, leaving, or dropping 
below half-time status) Up to 10 years is 
allowed to repay the loan. Application is 
made to a school's financial aid adminis- 
trator who manages the loan fund. The 
fund is a revolving account, designed to 
allow a school to continually make new 
loans as existing loans are repaid About 
800,000 student will receive NDSL's in 
1982-83; 10,000 more than in 1981-82. 

Recently, Secretary of Education T.H. 
Bell signed a regulation which provides 
incentives for an institution to reduce the 
default rate of its NDSL program fund. A 
college which has a default rate ovier 25 
percent is asked to turn responsibility for 
collecting the debt over to the Federal 
government, if an institution is not pre- 
pared to do this, and the default rate re- 
mains 25 percent or more, the Federal 
government will cut off NDSL funding. 

The Guaranteed Student Loan Pro- 
gram, much in the news lately, makes 
available low interest loans to students, 
with the Federal government paying the 
interest while a student is in school. 

These loans are made by a lender (such 
as a bank, credit union, or savings and 
loan association) and insured by either 
the Federal government or a State Guar- 
antee Agency. This, the largest student 
aid program, will make available over 
$9.5 billion in loans during the 1982-83 
school year. 

Undergraduate students can borrow 
up to $2,500 a year and graduate stu- 
dents can borrow up to $5,000 under 
GSL. The total debt an undergraduate 
can carry is $12,500. For graduate or 
professional study this figure is $25,000. 
A student borrower whose family income 
is less than $30,000 automatically quali- 
fies for an interest-subsidized loan. 
Students whose family income exceeds 
$30,000 may still be eligible for GSL in- 
terest benefits if the college's financial aid 
administrator determines that the student 
has demonstrated financial need. 

A new loan program started in 1981. 
called the Auxiliary Loan (or PLUS) Pro- 
gram, allows parents, independent stu 
dents, and graduate students to borrow 
up to $3,000 a year. There is no income 
cut off for eligibility. The interest on 
PLUS loans will be lowered from 14 to 
12 percent sometime in October as a 
result of lower average U.S. Treasury bill 
interest rates. 

As the economy continues to recover, 
we can expect a continued lowering of 
interest rates, thus easing student repay- 
ment costs and reducing Federal expen- 
ditures. In addition, the Reagan Admin- 
istration has embarked on a major initia- 
tive to collect delinquent and defaulted 
loans under the National Direct and 
Guaranteed Student Loan Programs It 
is anticipated that $80 million will be col- 
lected in 1983. Congress has been asked 
to allow funds collected on delinquent 
loans to be recycled in the loan pro- 
grams; under present law, such funds 
are returned to the treasury. Returning 
money to the loan funds would make 
more money available to future college 

Student aid reforms proposed by the 
Reagan Administration re-establish the 
fundamental principal that a student and 
his or her family share the primary res- 
ponsibility for meeting college costs. The 
Federal and State government have a 
role in bridging the gap between what a 
family can reasonably contribute and the 
cost of attending college. Only by main 
taining its fiscal integrity can the Federal 
government continue to play its part in 
bridging this gap through student aid

Letter to the Editors: 

by Scott J. Robertello 

President. Horticulture Society 

I am writing this article in reply to an 
article that was written several weeks ago 
concerning the Horticulture Department 
and the condition of the orchards. The 
content of the article was strictly the 
opinion, of a few students and not the 

Instead of knocking down the orchard, 
1 think we should tip our hats to the new 
orchard manager, Mr. Robert Kolmus, 
who has the orchard in the best condition 
I've seen since I arrived here at Del Val 
three years ago. Also overlooked was 
the new face the vegetable production 
area has received since the arrival of 
Dr. Thomas Cordrey. For the first time 
in years the college is producing a good 
and healthy crop of potatoes. All and 
all, vegetable production has increased 
and diversified over the last couple of 

As for the content of the article, many 
things should be straightened out. The 
small fruit area is full of weeds but for 
reasons other than neglect. The blueber- 
ries were hoed several times this sum- 
mer. The reason the department did not 
use herbicide is that using herbicide on a 
young blueberry bush can stunt its 
growth or even kill it. As for the strawber- 
ries, there is a salt problem in the soil 
causing a stress factor on the young berry 
plants. By using a herbicide, the plants 
also would have been killed or damaged. 
To top it off. this is not the time of year to 

renovate small fruit beds; the upcoming 
frosts will kill those weeds. 

The remarks concerning the Horticul- 
ture basement were true but not fully ex- 
plained If anybody has experienced 
handling an apple harvest, you know 
that there is not enough free time to keep 
the production area immaculate. Moving 
apples for grading, and pressing them 
for cider, makes even a clean basement 

The concern for making money is not 
the ultimate goal of the department, but 
rather to teach and show students dif- 
ferent types of fruit production techni- 
ques. This is a learning institution and 
our orchard is not a commercial orchard. 
After doing some research. 1 found out 
that the orchard is indeed making money 
this year. The orchard might have had a 
few problems over the last couple of 
years, but this was true nationwide. 

I was totally taken aback by the state- 
ment that Del Val was turning into a 
Penn State. If anything, we are pulling 
further away and ahead of Penn State in 
the aspect of practical experience. On a 
recent horticulture trip last spring, I talk- 
ed to a professor at Penn State who kept 
boasting about their program until I 
brought up the fact that we have many 
labs in the orchard and do a good bit of 
practical work. At Penn State, horticul- 
ture students do not touch an apple tree 
until they are in graduate school. Also, 
many people are not aware that at other 
large agriculture schools, students don't 
even touch a tractor or other equipment 
used in their areas. I would like to spend 
more time outside, in lab. but that is my 
opinion, not everybodys. It would be dif- 
ficult to add more lab time outside be- 
cause it would not be fair to the whole 
class as not everyone desires to work 
outside on an orchard. 

I'm not saying that the orchards are 
perfect; there is work to be done here 
too. I'm happy that the orchards are 
there and we have the privilege to work 
in them. 1 could have never learned what 
have learned without them.

Delaware Valley College 

Chapter Two, the Neil Simon comedy 
hit, will be presented at Delaware Valley 
College, on Tuesday, October 5th, 1982 
at 7:30 p.m. in the David Levin Dining 

Chapter Two is an admittedly autobio- 
graphical work, drawing on a very trying 
period in the life of the author. It was 
shortly after the death of his adored first 
wife that Simon met and fell in love with 
the woman who was to become his se- 
cond wife. A sense of guilt plagued 
Simon and he was unable for a long time 
to resolve his feelings of betrayal. In a 
rare act of self-revelation, the playwright 
used this very personal history as the 
basis for his play. 

This performance is being presented 
by the Alpha-Omega Players, Repertory 
Theater of America, a national touring 
company from Texas. 

Excuses . . . 

by Bud Hulshizer 

How many times did you need an ex- 
cuse for something in order to gracefully 
cover up an embarrasing situation? 
Many times, right? You can avoid such 
circumstances by the use of common 
sense. For instance, if you have a paper 
to hand in the next day in class and your 
dog actually does eat the report, you 
know the professor won't "buy" it; but 
what can you say? "My manual type- 
writer's plug frayed and 1 . . ." Already 
the professor knows you're lying. Say 
simply, "My electric typewriter ribbon 
broke and it was too late to buy a new 

You arrive late to a meeting because 
you forgot about it. You know this is a 
common excuse for not really wanting 
to go, so, what do you say? "A family 
crisis at home detained me." But, be 
careful, the overuse of this statement 
can seriously jeopardize their view of 
your family's stability.

When you think about eating out you 
probably think of Friday or Saturday 
nights, well how about Sunday morning. 
Alfalfa's offers a Sunday brunch buffet 
that is out of this world. It is an all you 
can eat buffet with both breakfast and 
lunch items 

Alfalfa's is another fine Montgomery 
County restaurant with it's own personal- 
ity. Most of the walls are decorated with 
picture stills of the "Our Gang Comedy 
Kids" — Spanky. Buckwheat. Darla. 
and Alfalfa; these keep your interest as 
you enjoy the food. This is a family 
place, and you can tell by looking 
around and seeing all the families enjoy- 
ing their Sunday meal. 

Our meal was an all you can eat and It 
included juice. Eggs Benedict, waffles, 
baked ham. sausage, hash browns 
(which needed to be cooked more), 
bagels with cream cheese, and the list 
goes on. Beverages such as coffee and 
milk are priced extra. The most catchy 
part of the meal was the cost of it, 4.75 
per person, not too bad for an all you 
can eat brunch. Other items include 
Swedish meatballs, mixed fruit. Shrimp 

Were you ever in the situation in 
which you were talking to someone try- 
ing to impress him or her and you 
sprayed them? You can avoid this em- 
barrasment by simply saying. "I'm sorry. 
I just got back from the dentist and he 
shot me up with novocaine." You even 
might get some pity from the person 
you were talking to. 

When you're in a public place and 
you see someone you know, you go 
over and start talking to him (her), and 
you find out that the person you're talk- 
ing to is a complete stranger. What do 
you do? It's simple. "Oh, I thought you 
were someone else. I can't see without 
my glasses." For those of you who wear 
glasses, say, "1 thought you were some- 
one else," (take your glasses off. hold 
them to the light and remark), "No 
wonder, my lenses are dirty." 

You're joy-riding in your car and 
you're pulled over by policeman. Don't 
say, "I have something in my eye, I 
didn't see the grass and tripped." You 
are definitely going to be asked to take a 
Breath Analyzer, say, "My mother is in 
the hospital and is very ill." But don't 
say this twice to the same policeman 

Newburg with rice, spicy apples, blue- 
berry muffins, a'-sorted pastries, and one 
of my tavorites was the cinnamon buns. 

A special note was the service, it was 
very commendable Our waitress was 
very nice, and always there when we 
needed assistance. Good service is not 
usually found in many restaurants now- 

There are many places that offer a 
Sunday brunch, but none that could 
compare in price or quality as the brunch 

1 enjoyed at Alfalfa's. They are open for 
brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p m To 
get to Alfalfa's from the school, take 202 
south, past Montgomery Mall, for about 

2 miles, it is on the right.

All right, all right, what about herpes 
simplex II. Your best friend drinks from a 
glass and you drink after him — guess 
what, you got it. Your best friend finds 
out he has herpes. Don't say to the doc- 
tor, "I got it from a guy," say. "You know 
a lot more about these things than I do " 

Your parents visit you and see porno 
graphic magazines in your room (you 
had forgotten to stash them) . You enjoy 
reading them, obviously, but your 
mother doesn't understand these things. 
Say, "I'm doing research on the effects of 
various stereotypic analysis presented 
from the view of the average reader." 
This statement means nothing, but it ac 
tually will impress both your parents 
because they don't know what you're 
talking about. 

You go into a drugstore to buy make 
up for your Halloween costume. Being a 
guy, you feel foolish. Don't say to the 
woman clerk, "I'm buying this for a

and looking for a good time." The clerk 
will know you're joking with her and give 
you her number. 


Aggies Down 

The Aggies handed visiting Upsala a 
36-7 defeat Saturday while uping their 
MAC Northern Division record to 2-0. 

Defensively the Aggies handled the 
Vikings with ease as they only allowed 
168 yards, four first downs, and held 
quarterback Larry Simms, a pro pros- 
pect, to four' of 14 for 90 yards. On the 
offense the Aggies began slowly but the 
Viking defense could not stop them once 
they started to move. 

The Aggie's Kevin Boyle Broke a score- 
less defensive battle when he picked up a 
Dave Barnhard punt and raced 52 yards 
for a touchdown with three minutes re- 
maining in the first quarter. Bob Hudoka 
added the first of four extra points for the 
afternoon . 

As time ran out in the first quarter, 
the Aggies were on the move and just 
three plays into the second, quarterback 
Tom O'Neill hit Dan Glowatski. on a 
19-yard strike at the four. On the next 
play, O'Neill, himself, went in off the left 
side giving the Aggies a 14-0 lead. 

On the Aggies next possession, Eric 
Reynolds swept around the right end for 


The women's cross country team 
outran Moravian 19 to 42 and shutout 
Widener lb to 49 on Saturday, Septem- 
ber 25 on Aggie territory. Jeanne Cran- 
ney was the first and only runner in sight 
as she finished the 3,25 mile course in 
21:13. Also many members of the team 
cut a considerable amount of time off 
their previous home course limes. The 
team is setting their goals high and work- 
ing toward them with great motivation. 

The results were as follows: 


an 11-yard gain and the all-time rushing 
record at D.V.C. See the next issue of 
Ram Pages for a feature article on Eric 

The only breakdown in the Aggies 
defense on the afternoon came when 
Lai-ry Simms hit Gavin dave on a 
66-yard scoring strike with 7:49 left in 
the half. 

Mike Harbold intercepted a Simms' 
pass on the Upsala 26-yard line giving 
the Aggies a great scoring opportunity, 
and with just 40 seconds left in the half, 
Nick Russo cashed it in for a touchdown 
to give the Aggies a 21-7 halftime lead. 

Eric Reynolds capped a near five 
minute 62-yard drive when he scored 
from one yard out just nine seconds into 
the fourth quarter. The drive was the 
best the Aggies had put together all after- 
noon as they mixed their plays and kept 
the defense looking. 

Bob Hudoka hit a 25-yard field goal 
with 3:50 remaining in the game to 
make the final score Aggies 31, Upsala 
7. For Hudoka, it was his first field goal 
in five attempts, and his first ever, in front 
of the home fans. 

The Aggies will travel to Juniata 
tomorrow to meet the Indians, the only 
conference team to beat the Aggies last

This weekend the Aggie runners went 
against some stiff competition, avd the 
results showed it, Saturday during half- 
time at the football game the men Har- 
riers competed agaiiist Widener College 
and Moravian College, both MAC Divi- 
sion 111 institutions. After a week of gruel 
ing workouts, the Harriers went into the 
meet with tired minds and muscles, Ed 
Kuri led the first mile with a 5:07 pace. 
Things looked good at this point with Ed. 
Rich Weaver, and Ken McDoicI taking 
the 1. 2. 3 positions. But Moravian Col- 
lege held a few surprises and at the in- 
famous featherbed hill, the Harriers were 
broken up. Moravian had three runners 
in the front pack and Widener h.icl one 
The end results were an Aggie win over 
Widener (22-3.5) and a loss to Moravian 

Rich Weaver won the race with a time 
of 29: 12, while Ed Kun finished 5th. Ken 
McDaid 11th. Jeppe Christianson 12th, 
Gary Kampmever 14th. Tom Nelson 
19th. and Martv Kudleskv 20lh.

You may have been surprised to find 
that the first volleyball game was held in 
the James Work Gym instead of the 
Rudley-Neumann Gym. There are some 
very good reasons for this change. 

Because the small gym floor was 
damaged, the only place to move was to 
the large gym. This called for a new net 
system. The girls are very proud of their 
new net. The net standards (posts) and 
guide wires attach directly to the floor, 
making the net very sturdy. There are 
also wires through the top and bottom 
which prevent sags. The net is now very 
official. But the best feature is that it takes 
only 15 minutes to set up for a game in- 
stead of 45 to 60 minutes. 

The team also got new uniforms, knee 
pads, and new balls. They now have 
enough balls to have personalized drills 
at practice. 

Come and see what's new in volley- 
ball, I'm sure you'll agree, it makes a 
"spiking" difference. 


Hey country boys and girls, get ready 
for a good old-fashioned hayride spon- 
sored by the class of '83. This grand 
event will take place on October 8. The 
trip will originate in front of the David 
Levin Dining Hall and tour through the 
farms. So get ready for a hay-stuffing 
good time. Stay tuned for more details.

Did you know that honey is one of the 
most non-perishable of Agricultural pro- 
ducts? In fact it has been found sealed in 
crocks in the pyramids and is still edible 
after 3,000 years! 

This is just one of the interesting tidbits 
which members of the Apiary Society 
learned at the last meeting. Doc. Bert- 
hold gave a mini-minicourse in Apicul- 
ture with the main focus being on honey 
production and honeys' different forms, 
colors, and flavors. Other club business 
included discussion of honey sales and 
the passing out of club T-shirts, The 
meeting came to a close with honey 
sampling to help acquaint the new 
members with the differences in flavor 
found in honey, and to revitalize the old 
members" taste buds. Anyone interested 
in the Apiary Society is invited to attend 
the meetings. Watch for the signs to be 
posted for the date and time. See you

Farming is ^1 

by Jeffrey C. Montagnoli 

What do you think is the most danger- 
ous occupation today in the United 
States? If you said mining or construction 
you are not alone, but guess again. Most 
people are surprised to learn that Agri- 
culture is the number one industry for 
accidental deaths on the job. 

A recent article in Today. The Inquirer 
Magazine, titled "Danger on the Farm." 
revealed some very shocking facts about 
what 1 had considered a fairly safe oc- 
cupation. Considering that this is an 
agricultural college and that a large per 
cent of its students have worked on 
farms, are working on farms, or will work 
on farms. I feel that some of the article's 
information will be of interest, excluding 
the gruesome and heartbreaking stories 
of farm-related accidents. 

The National Safety Council conducts 
an annual survey across the nation of ac- 
cidental deaths on the job for various in- 
dustries. Mining and construction were 
considered the deadliest occupations for 
years, however, in the 1980 survey, farm- 
ing had moved to the number one spot. 
The figures for the 1982 survey will be 
released soon. Preliminary figures show 
that in 1981 58 deaths occurred for 
every 100,000 agricultural workers in 
the U.S. Mining is second with 55 and 
third is construction with 43. 

The causes of death are numerous. 
Farmers are being crushed by overturned 
tractors, mangled in mowers, threshers, 
combines, and foragers, kicked by ani- 
mals, or fall to their deaths from silos, 
machines, and barns. 

When people have farmed most of 
their lives, you would think they would 
know the ropes well enough not to get 

hurt. They usually think so too. Then 
why does it happen? Almost every farm 
accident is caused by an error in judg- 
ment of lack of concentration, often due 
to the long hours and the sometimes 
monotony of life on the farm. 

Farming has become the most danger- 
ous occupation not because the deaths 
have increased, but because other in- 
dustries have reduced their hazards a lot 
more. What has been done to reduce 
farm deaths? Federal regulations have 
led to such things as roll bars on tractors 
and reflecting decals on slow-moving 
equipment. This is a large step consider- 
ing that out of the 60 to 65 farm deaths 
least year in Pennsylvania, about half of 
them were caused by tractor overturns. 

In 1977 Congress passed the Small 
Farm Exemption Act which gave the 
federal Occupational Safety and Health 
Administration jurisdiction to enforce 
regulations over only those farms with 11 
or more employees. Small farmers have 
no regulations and want it that way. It 
would be very hard to enforce regula- 
tions anyway. 

There are two approaches to prevent- 
ing death and injury on the farm: 
educating the farmers on safer farming 
methods and getting farm machinery to 
have all possible safety switches, shields, 
and bars. 

Education is being done by almost 
every organization that comes in contact 
with farm life such as co-ops, 4-H, and 
FFA. It is being done through pamphlets, 
periodicals, and seminars, but mostly it is 
done in the schools, when the future 
farmers are still forming their own ideas. 1 
am sure it is being done at Del Val. 1 
hope it's the one lesson every student of 
agriculture will remember while here and 
after they graduate. Let's keep our alum- 
ni in production surveys and out of 
death surveys.

As an extra attraction to this year's 
Parents' Day festivities, DVC will be giv- 
ing rides to a couple of lucky parents in a 
hot air balloon. 

The balloon, from Bucks County Bal- 
loon Adventures, will be inflated as part 
of the half-time show at the football 
game. The balloon will then be deflated 
and the football game will continue. At 
the end of the game the balloon will be 
inflated again and 30 lucky people will be 
given a ride in the tethered balloon. This 
involves going up and then coming 
down in the balloon while it is secured to 
the ground. 

Then the winning couple, somebody's 
parents, will be given a ride over the 
Bucks County countryside. The trip itin- 
erary is not known, it's all in the way the 
wind blows. But don't worry, the balloon 
is followed by a "chase car" and after 45 
minutes of enjoying the sights and cham- 
pagne the lucky couple will be brought 
back to DVC. 

Parents can enter their names in the 
drawing at the reception in the gym be- 
tween 9:30 and 11:30. Anyone else 
who may be interested in winning a ride 
in the tethered balloon can put their 
name in the drawing as they enter the 
stadium for the football game. 

Good luck and enjoy the ride.

Again this year, with the arrival of 
autumn comes the annual harvest of fall 
apples from the College orchards. This 
season is no exception: an excellent 
growing period, combined with many 
hours of hard labor, has made the 1982 
crop both plentiful and very pleasing to 
the tast buds. Thanks to the work of the 
Horticulture Society, part of this harvest 
will be available for tomorrow's visiting 
parents, as well as the Aggie football 

The apples, with such varieties as 
Cortland and Delicious, have been 
carefully washed, graded, and packed 
by Horticulture Society members, in ad- 
dition to these crunchy munchies, there 
will be cider, freshly pressed by the 
students using the College facilities. 

Both the cider and apples will be 
available at two locations this year; from 
10 a.m. until 1p.m., at the Horticulture 
Building and again from 12 noon until 
the final victory cheers, at the stadium. 

Cider will be sold by the gallon, V2 
gallon, and cup. Apples will be sold by 
the peck, V2 peck, and individually.

Letter to the Editors: 


It has become apparent throughout 
the campus that there are too many 
maintenance jobs in the dorms and 
buildings that remain undone and unfix- 
ed. For example, one of the urinals on 
Work 1st has not been functioning since 
about September 5. Our R.A. has re- 
ported it numerous times. Today it is still 
not working. I will tell you why it is still 
not working: 

1. All situations that need attending to 
on campus must be approved by 
Mr. Caceres, who is supposed to be 
the head man at maintenance. 

2. All Mr. Caceres' workers are. and 
have been, working on his new 
home on Lasker 3rd while our pro- 
blems remain unattended to. 

3. It is our money that is paying for this 
man's home while in return he does 
nothing for us! 

4. Most of his workers appear to keep 
busy but can only do work Mr. 
Caceres approves of; I am not put- 
ting down his help. 

5. Try to find Mr. Caceres sometimes; 
he is seldom on campus. 

6. Now think — is this the kind of 
person we need.

**li you're short don't worry" 

by Allen Downing 

Being small is not as bad as most min- 
uscule people would have you believe. If 
you're small, sometimes you can get 
shots to help you grow, but if you're tall 
everyone still makes fun of you because 
you're so tall, and there are no shots to 
make you shrink. If you're short you are 
often considered cute or adorable, but 
when y9u're tall you are often considered 
goofy or weird. 

1 all men can get jobs, if they are good 
at basketball; short people can get a job. 
if they can ride a horse. Either way you 
lose in a world of height conscientious 
people. Everyone must be 5 ft. 11 in. to 
6 ft. 2 in. or they are something to laugh 
at. So if life deals you a LOW blow and 
makes you a few, inches or feet smaller, 
just remember that being tall is not all it's 
cracked up to be. 


What do you want 
in the Student Stored 

by Jamie Beck 

Dr. Gerald Handler. Director of Con- 
tinuing Education, said he wants to know 
what the student body wants in the stu- 
dent store. He wants the products to be 
expanded. Dr. Handler wants to see the 
following: greater selection of drugstore 
items, magazines, snacks, glassware, 
ashtrays, and pewter with the college 
logo, and more selection of clothing, 
with different price ranges. Come on, 
Aggies, tell us what you would like to see 
in the store, and we will see what we can 
do about it. 


Ray Charles will perform two benefit 
performances Saturday, October 9, at

Dear Aggie 

Dear Aggie, 

During my first week here at DVC I made friends with two very nice girls. The 
three of us went home that first weekend, but when 1 returned that Monday I 
was minus two friends. They wouldn't look or talk to me. and I have to see one 
of them every Monday. I don't know what it is that I've done because they won't 
talk to me. 1 have ether friends now. but it still makes me miserable not having 
these two as friends because they're very special to me. It upsets me every time I 
see them and I see them all the time because one is on the newspaper staff and 
the other in in the band and works in the library. 

What should I do? 


Miserable and needing advice 

Dear Miserable, 

There is obviously something wrong here.. The only way to solve this is to talk 
to them about it. The best way to do this to confront them when they are alone 
and ask them what you might have done to upset them. It could all be a mis- 
understanding. This problem comes up many times usually the reason is just a 
lack of communication. If your two friends are unwilling to talk to you about the 
problem they couldn't really have been friends. Just remember this thought. "A 
real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the wodd walks out." 


Send your problems or questions to Aggie c/o Ram Pages, P.O. Box 988.

New animal breed discovered at Del Val. 


by Mike Jaskolka 

For those of you who don't want your 
taste-buds surprised this weekend when 
you go to find a place to eat, 1 have 
prepared a list of restaurants in the 
Doylestown area. There is something 
here for everyone's tastes and budget. 
Included are a few places to avoid for 
one reason or another. 

If you enjoy a good family restaurant 
at reasonable prices, here are a few of 
my favorites: 

Boswells — Good country cooking at 
good prices ($4.90 to $10.95) per en- 
tree. Located on Rt. 263; follow 202N 
to 413 S to Rt. 263; It's on the left, 
about 10 minutes from the school. 
Water Wheel Inn - This place is a big 
"plus." The food is very good; atmos- 
phere is pleasant rustic decor. Average 
prices range from $7.95 to $14.95 for 
the entree. Take Rt. 611N to the Rt. 
313 exit, go right on 313 through the 
traffic light, left on Old Easton Rd. about 
4 miles or about 7 minutes from the 

Country Side Inn — A good homey- 
type meal at reasonable prices ($4.95 to 
$11.95) per meal. Follow Rt. 61 IN to 
Rt. 313 exit, right on Rt. 313 to light, 
turn left: the Inn is about 300 yards on 
the left. 

Richard's Seafood — This is one of 
the best low-priced seafood restaurants 
in Doylestown. Average prices ran^e 
from $4.25 to $9.00 per meal. Richard's 
is located at 651 N. Main in Doyles- 
town, about 5 minutes from the school. 

Seafood Shanty — A really good 
seafood restaurant, with good prices to 
match, $4.95 to $14.95 per meal. 
Follow Rt. 61 IS to the King's Plaza on 
the right. It's about 10 minutes from the 

Golden Lights - An A-1 Chinese 
restaurant, that has all types of Chinese 
styles of preparing food. Prices range- 
from $5.95 to $12.95 for entire meal. 
Follow Rt. 6115 for about 10 minutes, 
it's on the left just past McDonald's. If 
you pass the turnpike entrance you 
went too far> 

Here are a few more restaurants in 
the area that are noteworthy, but are a 
bit higher in price. 

Cock 'n Bull Restaurant in Ped- 
dler's Village, Lahaska. Hacienda Inn 
located in New Hope. Logan Inn 
located in New Hope. Lakehouse Inn 
in Pcrkasie off Rt. 313N; Pipersville 
Inn is a very, very good restaurant on 
Rt 61 IN Inn at Phillips Mill in New 

These restaurants I have listed below 
did not satisfy me because of their being 
high priced or not living up to my 

Conti's Inn — really good food,4Dut 
expensive Chong's Garden — they 
use too much flavor enhancer, and 1 got 
a headache from my meal there. 
Missy's Inn — the food tasted like 
diner food, instead of fine restaurant 
food. Doylestown Diner — has a 
good bakery, but the food is a bit bland. 

The restaurants mentioned in the 
beginning of my article are just a few of 
my favorites in and around town. Most 
of the meals include a salad, potato, 
vegetables, rolls and butter, and the en- 
tree. All beverages are extra. Some of 
the restaurants require reservations. 

If you have any questions or com- 
ments about the restaurants mentioned 
above or any others that I have review- 
ed, let me know. I need some feedback 
— be it good or bad. 


1. Students in Senior Problems should have a minimum cumulative 
academic average of 2.5 before registration for Special Problems. This 
figure (2.5) may be subject to revision for a specific department on the 
approval of the department and division chairmen in consultation with 
the Chairman of the Research Committee. 

2. Students may register for a maximum of three credits of Senior Special 
Problems with the approval of their Department Chairman. 

3. The deadlines for the Senior Special Problems are as follows: 

Oral Presentation - April 30. 1983 
Written Final Paper - May 10, 1983 

The Research Committee urges the Seniors and especially those in- 
terested in graduate studies to take a look at the Senior Special Problems 
program by contacting the chairman of their respective departments. Addi- 
tional information regarding the program can be obtained from the Chairman 
of the Research Committee. 

The following letter from one student 
who conducted a research project in 
1980 was received by the Research 
Committee. It illustrates better than 
anything we can say the importance of 
the Senior Special Problems program. 


I feel led to jot down a few thoughts 
concerning the Senior Special Problems 
program and what I've gained from it. 
There are very few people who get the 
opportunity to pursue their own inde- 
pendent research for credit as an 
undergraduate. The experience is in- 
valuable — a "warm up" and drawing 
card for grad schcx)!, and in my case, the 
way I developed a deeply-rooted interest 
in a particular field of study. This disci- 
plined research regime was a lot of work, 
and many days an albatross around my 

neck, but the interest shown by grad 
schools, and knowing that 1 really did at- 
tempt to do something that no one has 
ever done before (and even had a small 
measure of success!), really make it all 

1 can't understand why only a handful 
of people chose to take advantage of one 
of DVC's best programs in '79-'80. If this 
not finds its way into the library copy of 
my paper — listen — if you are at all 
considering graduate studies or even just 
have an interest in something, do some 
research here — make your mistakes 
here and not on a real thesis. I heard too 
many people say that they didn't have 
time. Believe me, I am living proof that 
you can make the time.

A Flight of Fantasy 

by Craig L. Wasserkrug 

So. what did you do this past week- 
end? Last Sunday my alarm clock went 
off at five a.m. to keep a date with 
destiny. I had a six o'clock appointment 
with a balloon race in the Bucks County 
Autumn Flight Festival in Quakertown. 
PA. At six, myself and a chase crew of 
one of the balloons, were the only ones 
there. By six-thirty, all had arrived, and 
I was introduced to Ted Torok. the pilot 
with whom I was going to entrust my life 
and even more precious my camera 
equipment. Ted has been ballooning for 
three years and has had his pilot's 
license for three months. He answered 
all the questions 1 had about the sport 
and said to take it easy and just take 
your photos while we get ready. 

Ted's wife Nancy helped ' get the 
balloon ready and was part of our chase 
crew. There was also another woman 
who was going to be the third passenger 
for our flight. 

There were about twenty hot air 
balloons, in all the colors of the rainbow 
and it was a beautiful and wonderful 

By seven -fifteen there was a crowd of 
several hundred people watching us 
while we waited our turn for lift off. 
When our turn came, we just rose as if 
we lost our gravity and drifted upward 
with the wind. Ted could adjust our 
direction somewhat by raising or lower- 
ing the balloon into different air currents. 

The view was majestic, seeing the 
beautiful countryside and all of its dif- 
ferent hues of the autumn leaves and 
the farms with their animals. 

After flying for about an hour, we 
prepared to find a place to land. We 
spotted an open field and proceeded to 
deflate the balloon to land. The landing 
was very smooth with only a slight 
bounce on impact. After our chase crew 
arrived and the balloon was completely 
deflated and everything was put away, 
the traditional bottle of champagne was 
opened in celebration of a successful 
and safe flight. The bottle we enjoyed 
was from our pilots' own vineyards and 
was most appealing. 

While driving back to meet all the 
other balloonists, I thought how this was 
one of the most appealing ways to see 
the countryside. It was the most enjoy- 
able outing I have had and I am plan- 
ning to do it many times in the future.

Record Book Performer 

by Mel Balliet 

Senior running back Eric Reynolds 
wrote another chapter in the record 
books, Saturday, September 25. as he 
rushed for 45 yards en route to setting a 
new Delaware Valley College career 
rushing record. 

Reynolds broke onto the scene in 
1979 when he rushed for 394 yards and 
was recognized by the ECAC as Rookie 
of the Year. But it was his sophomore 
season that made the fans stand and 
cheer. Eric paced the Aggies to their first 
victory in 1980 when he rushed for 139 
yards on 23 carries against Wilkes, a 
game which earned him the Maxwell 
Club Award. He continued to pile up 
the yardage through the season and 
when the Aggies traveled to Juniata, 
Eric found himself just 39 yards short of 
John Nice's 1967 one season record of 
709 yards. The Indian's defense proved 
to be no better at stopping him then any 
other all season, as he tallied 78 yards 
and easily displaced Nice in the record 
book. The final game of the season 
proved to be the biggest for the Aggies 
and for Eric. The team won their first 
ever MAC crown while Eric rushed for 
254 yards breaking Joe Laumakis' 
record of 200 yards in a single game, set 
on October 21, 1978 against Sus- 
quehanna. With this 254-yard perfor- 
mance Eric elapsed the 1000-yard mark 
for the season (1002). 

Eric was hampered by a persistent 
hamstring injury for much of his junior 
year but still hit the line more than any 
other Aggie (110 times) while leading 
the team with 340 yards. 

His three-year total placed him only 
128 yards shy of the all-time career 
rushing mark. Eric said he felt no pres- 
sure coming into the season, and his 
running proved to be anything cautious. 
Against Widener in the season opener 
he rushed for 51 yards and was a model 
of consistency in game two as he rushed 
for 50 more. This placed him just 27 
yards from Floyd Alderfer's mark set in 
1971-74. Upsala's defense keyed on 
the record-bound back through the first 
quarter, but with 10: 19 remaining in the 
first half Reynolds broke around the 
right end for an 11-yard gain and the 
record. Finishing the game with 45 
yards Eric is now in a position to chase 
the illustrious 200-yard career. 

Eric, who now holds all the individual 
rubhing records at DVC, credits the of- 
fensive line for much of his success. This 
line has been intact since his sophomore

Senior Diane Bradley scored a big 
goal in the Aggies season opener at 
Albright on September 15, giving 
her the Delaware Valley College 
career scoring record. The record 
was held by Brenda Wolfe who end- 
ed her career in 1980 with 23 goals. 





year and he say it gets him the first ten 
yards. When asked if this was the big- 
gest thrill of his career. Eric replied. 
"Not as big of a thrill as being the first to 
rush over 1,000 yards (one season) in 
the school's history, but a thrill at that." 
Coach Wilson said he was glad to sec 
Eric get the record while adding "He has 

his dues coming with that because I 
think he has been a premier running 

In closing. Ram Pages would like to 
congratulate Eric for his record -setting 
performances and wish him much suc- 
cess in the remaining games as well as in 
his future endeavors. 

Indians Do It Again 

Last season's MAC North co-champ- 
ions met on Saturday when the Aggies 
traveled to Juniata. The Indians were the 
only conference team to be'at the Aggies 
last season and with a fourth quarter 
touchdown the Indians did it again as 
they handed the Aggies a 12-10 defeat. 

Ron Verra recovered a Juniata fumble 
on the Indians 27-yard line to set up an 
Eric Reynolds one-yard plunge with 
12: 18 remaining in the first half. Later in 
the half Rich Dougherty . intercepted a 
Dave Pfeiffer pass and with 6:08 remain- 
ing in the half. Bob Hudoka. who had a 
27-yard field goal attempt blocked 
earlier, came on to make good on a 
37-yard attempt and put the Aggies up 

The Indians got the ball on the Aggies 
32-yard line following a blocked punt 
and with just 2:10 left in the half Dave 
Pfeiffer hit Dave Murphy on a 32-yard 
strike to trim the Aggies lead to 10-6. 

With just unJer four minutes remain- 
ing in the game the Indians started a 
drive and with just 2:55 remaining Dave 
Pfeiffer threw a nine-yard toss to Kevin 
Smith and the 12-10 victory. 

Eric Reynolds was the games leading 
rusher with 63 yards on 22 carries. This 
63 yard performance gave Eric 1,945 
career yards just 55 yards shy of a 2,000 
yard career. 

Tomorrow the Aggies will host the Ly- 
coming Warriors, who are still unbeaten 
in the MAC North. 


The Aggies have posted a 2-5 record 
thus far this season and a 1-2 record this 
past week. 

The Aggies with the help of Scott 
Ruth's three goals and the goal minding 
of Suren Pakhtigian defeated Beaver 
College 7-0. But the Aggies lost to both 
Spring Garden College (4-0) and 
Albright (5-1). 

Del Val will be at home tomonrow for 
Parents' Day as they will host Ursinus at 
11 a.m. 


Del Val. on Saturday, won the 
Academy of New Church Volleyball 

The Aggies were winners over North- 
ampton Community College (15-4, 
15-3) and Cedar Crest College (15-5, 
15-4). while spliting with Penn State - 
Ogontz (15-9, 6-15). The Aggies then 
moved on to the semifinals where they 
met the host Academy of the New 
Church and were 15-5, 5-15, 15-13 
winners. The Aggies then faced Penn 
State - Ogontz for the championship 
and took a 15-7, 15-9 decision to win 
the tournament. The Aggies will play 
host to Kings College on Tuesday even- 
ing at 7:00. 


The men's cross country team had a 
busy week as they ran against five teams 
but dropped four of the five. 

The men lost to Albright (23-37) and 
Textile (23-36) and beat Philadelphia 
Pharmacy (20-43) in one tri-meet and 
then lost to Swarthmore (21-37) and 
Drexel (24-33), but beat Pharmacy 
because of a forfeit. 

Ed Kuri was Del Val's most consistent 
runner, taking third overall in both 
meets. The junior co-captain ran a 
28:19 against Textile and Albright and 
then came back to run a 26:48 against 
Swarthmore and Drexel. 

The Aggies will host Scranton, Leba- 
non Valley, and Susquehanna tomor- 
row at half time of the Parent's Day 

New Sports Information 

Delaware Valley College has a new 
Sports Information Director, Mr. Joseph 
Ferry. The Ram Pages staff would like to 
welcome Mr. Ferry and thank him for his 
continued help in making the sports page 
a success. 


Volleyball has a new coach, Maureen 
Frederick. Replacing a coach in mid- 
season is not unusual in professional 
sports; however it is a rarity here at 

The replacement became necessary 
last Friday when Kathy Kravitz quit her 
position one and a half hours prior to 
departure for the volleyball game at Up- 
sala. A difficulty arose following the 
game Thursday. The standards were 
removed and someone apparently drop- 
ped them severely damaging the James 
Work Gymnasium floor. After a discus- 
sion with Al Wilson, who did not fire 
Coach Kravitz, she decided to qiiit for 
personal reasons without anymore 
notice than the time necessary to com- 
pose a letter of resignation . 

Good luck to Coach Frederick and the 
team in the remainder of the season. 


The women improved their record to 
5-0 on the season by beating Philadelphia 
Pharmacy 16-47. 

Jeanne Cranney continued her un- 
beaten streak by taking first place for the 
third meet in a row. Cranney ran an 
18:48 against Pharmacy. 

Gail Keleher was second with 19:53 
while Chris Frazer was third with 20:31 
and Sue Kulp fourth with 20:33. 

The girls will havt this weekend off but 
will return to action on Tuesday when 
they travel to Drew.

World Food Day. Saturday. October 
l(-). offers us an opportunity to recognizf 
how fortunate we are. Though many 
people throughout the world lack suffi 
cient fcx)d. our planet is in fact capable of 
providing enough food for .everyone In 
view of this fact. World Food Day should 
inspire us to re establish our belief that 
food is the most fundamental right of all 

Our planet is tremendously abundant 
Food is found everywhere, and its wide 
diversity is almost unbelievable. Just try 
for a moment, or several hours, to break 
the four basic food groups into their 
many components f-urthermore. in the 
past twenty-five years the total amount 
of food produced has doubled. In fact, 
the productiofi of food has increased 
faster than the population rate every- 
where but in Africa. 

There is, however, much work to be 
done. Paradoxically, in spite of the vast 
quantities of food, nearly one fourth of 
the world's population goes hungry. 
Even more appalling, 15-20 million peo- 
ple, mostly children, die of starvation 
each year The simple fact is that many 

people cannot afford to buy food, while 
others are denied the resources to pro- 
duce it. No one is going hungry because 
there is not enough food; the reasons are 
more political. 

The most important aspect of life is 
food, it is one of our biggest preoccupa- 
tions. We eat out of necessity, habit, and 
as a means of deriving pleasure. Food is 
a primary means of initiating and main- 
taining human relationships. Food is in- 
corporated into religious services; we 
have business lunches, dinner dates, and 
family gatherings. The fact that three out 
of four people do not need to fear for the 
next day's meal is the greatest security of 
all. Unfortunately, when food is readily 
available, we tend to take it for granted. 
It is not surprising then, that we have 
been blinded of the starvation that exists. 
• World Food Day. therefore, gives us 
the chance to celebrate the sufficiency of 
our Earth while also recognizing the reali- 
ty of starvation. It also provides an op- 
portunity to reaffirm our commitment to 
end hunger. World Food Day urges us to 
do what we can to create the will to end 
hunger. It is a day to pay tribute to those 
who produce our food, and to partake of 
our meals purposefully and with aware- 
ness. Lastly, as you sit down to dinner 
October 16. try to envision a world 
without hunger.

Note of Appreciation 


1:30p.m. in 

I would like to extend a special thank 
you to Mrs. Nelson and the Dean of 
Students Office for organizing a 
memorable Parent's Day. Many hours 
were spent in order to make the day 
special for the students and their families. 
It is my opinion that this Parent's Day 
was the best one I have attended in 
seven years. 1 do not know what you 
could possibly come up with next year. 
"Nelson." to top it. Knowing you 
however, you will think of something! 

Sincerely. K O.N.

Who is playing the National Anthem 

Dear Editors: 

The past two home football games the 
National Anthem has been a recording 
Why a recording? That is what the band 
would like to know. On September 25, 
the anthem was played at 1:12p.m. just 
as the band was walking into the stadium 
and <his past week it was played at 1: 14 
p.m. while the band was SITTING in the 
stands waiting to play the National An- 
them. Whoever is running the recording 
should be informed that D.V.C. has a 
band, and in the past four years we have 
not missed a home football game. Though 
we are small, we make up for it in spirit 
and pride in ourselves to play a better 
National Anthem than a recorded ver- 
sion. The band hopes that measures will 
be taken to inform the "mule" in charge 
that D.V.C. has a BAND! We look for- 
ward to playing the National Anthem at

Dear Editors: 

As many people realize last Saturday 
was Parent's Day. It was a beautiful day 
and lunch was set up in the usual man- 
ner behind the admissions office. The 
main course was roast beef cooked in a 
sauce making it a combination between 
pot roast and a sloppy joe After showing 
my ID card 1 got my sandwich and sat 
down on the grass. To my surprise, my 
third bite revealed something shiny 
within the sandwich. It was a very clean 
nut and bolt. The students around me 
though it to be a secret nutrition study on 
iron deficiency in college students. I 
didn't Others had mentioned that they 
found other foreign objects such as wood 
shavings, plastic bits, and even live in- 
sects in their food. When questioned 
about such occurances. cafeteria workers 
never seem to have any satisfactory 
answers. "It was an accident" or "an iso- 
lated incident" is often heard. For what- 
ever reason, remember there is more 
than one advantage for eating your food

Dear Editors: 

Gag me with a wet noodle or worse 
yet. gag me with DVC Dining Hall food 
I've been hanging around this place for a 
few years now. and while the food ha^ 
never been spectacular, (I have always 
found reason to complain of food poi- 
soning) , it has never been this blase and 
poor. It has sunk to the bottom of a new 
and deeper pot. Prior to this year food 
was at least different from week to week. 
Now all one has to do is look on the 
calendar to see the day of the week to 
know the menu; Thursday - cheese pizza 
for lunch, etc. The special meals, waffles 
'n ice cream have been nice, but the 
balance is still tipped unfavorably. 

Maybe it is easier just to xerox one 
copy of the menu and use it each week. 

Saves time — not figuring what to serve, 
making an order for the food — it is 
always the same and once you get into a 
routine of making something, it is really 
quick. And what you don't serve one 
week you can just keep as Peftovers for 
the next week and the next and so on. 

Also, throughout the week, if you are 
stuck for. something to do and feel scien 
tific. you ran watch the evolution of the 
various me.ils Tomato soup spaghetti 
sauce sloppy joes lasagna etc. With 
an FI major .it ciur humble school, one 
would think v\e could get more palatable

Dear Editors: 

Up until last year I lived on campus 
and had a car here every year. This sum- 
mer I was notified that I did not have a 
place to live on campus, and would have 
to move to Tabor or live off campus This 
seePK'ti very annoying at the time, but as 
I have found out Tabor is a fine place to 
live and I am very happy there: but one 
thing 1 did not figure on is all the 
nonsense I feel we go through with park- 
ing. I presently have four tickets, three of 
which I think were unjustfully written 
What I feel is my biggest gripe is not be- 
ing able to park in Segal at night during 
weekdays I have left my night class at 
10:00, parked my car in Segal and have 
gotten a ticket The people of Tabor and 
West when on campus at night, don't 
have the small luxury of walking out of 
the library or a dorm and walking 50 
yards to their room. We have to get to 
our cars, warm them up. and drive out 
to our rooms. This might not seem like a 
big deal now. but when it starts getting 
colder, this could become a real pain in 
the pants, I think security and the school 
should consider allowing the people of 
Tabor and West to park in Segal's during 
weeknights. We have different ivjmbered 
parking stickers and this could be used to 
check who is parking there. The Segal 
parking lot always seems to have 5 or b 
empty spots, especially at night, which 
could be readily used by West or Tabor

Once again, the famous Roommate 
Game will return to the David Levin Din- 
ing Hall, Tuesday. October 19 at 7:30 
p.m. The popular event, sponsored by 
the Resident Assistants and Student 
Government, is now in its second year, 
and promises to be both surprising and 
challenging, not to mention funnier than 
you could ever imagine. 

The game, which is a takeoff of TV's 
Newly wed Game, takes pairs of room- 
mates, three at a time, divides them up. 

and asks them questions about each 
other. Questions asked are those that 
everyone would know about his or her 
roommate, like these: "What kind of 
deodorant does your roomie use?" or 
"At what time does your live-in-buddy 
set their alarm for?" Such questions that 
are really very simple, until you think 
about them and apply them to your 

To enter this wacky, "Let's see how 
much you really know" contest, see your 
RA to sign up. Cash prizes as well as gift 
certificates will be offered, and even if 
you are not interested in playing the 
game itself, stop by and enjoy the fun of 
being part of the audience. 

Dear Aggie, 

I am a freshman. This letter is about freshmen exams. I have never had to take 
this kind of exam before. Needless to say 1 didn't do to well on the first Biology 
exam, but I don't know if it was the type of exam or I just didn't grasp the 
material How do I find out? What do I do? 



Dear Confused, 

With all the exams coming up you should find out the answers right away. 
First if you have the old exam read the question to yourself, if you can answer all 
the questions without looking at the answers you now know that you understand 
the material. Second, if you do this but can't answer the questions you need to 
get extra help There are tutors available in most of the basic sciences almost any 
weeknight who can help you to understand the material A schedule of hours 
can be found on the bulletin boards all around campus, just check one out. 
Hope this helps. .

Each year millions of acres of prime 
farm land are lost forever. The develop 
ers' unquenching thirst for giant profits 
inevitably causes the non-corporate far- 
mer to liquidate his holdings. Pavement 
spreads where crops once flourished 
This is the growing trend that agriculture 
has fallen victim to. One can easily see 
that Bucks County has not been immuiK' 
to this trend 

I realize that no one can foretell the 
future, but one can follow the trend If I 
may. this is how I interpret, the agricultur 
al trend. By the year 2000. prime farm 
land will be in high demand but in dan 
gerously low supply. Thus, those farmers 
remaining will receive a good return for 
their crops However, the consumer will 
be forced to pay even more for food, 
especially fruits and vegetables. Agro 
nomic crops, such as wheat and corn, 
will have more stable prices primarily 
because the mid- west and west will con 
tinue to be less populated (less desirable 
to the developer). In general, genetic 
research will increase crop yields some- 
what but not significantly. Crop yields 
will inevitably peak and stabilize. The 
current trend of expanding farm acreage 
will be reversed, simply because the 
value of available land will be inflated! To 
lower their operating costs and be more 
price competitive, the non -corporate far- 
mer will have to be located closer to 
the population centers if he chooses to 

Finally the Del Val agricultural gradu- 
ate comes into the power play Con- 
sidering that the graduate is trained and 
willing, he or she can take advantage of 
this agricultural face lift. By careful think 
ing, planning, and organization this in 
dividual could establish a small acreage 
operation, either road side market or 
(PYO) pick your own. Having few acres 
(20 or less), operating costs are at a 
minimum (reduced mechanization and 
labor) One could outperform the large.

Soil Judges Travel to URI 

by Nancy Bulanchuk 

This past v^eekt'iul, the schools soil 
judging team travelled lo thv Universitv 
of Rhode Island for the Northeastern 
Regional Soil Judging Contest The 
team arrived in Rhode Island-late Thurs 
day night, then sf^ent tin' day Iridav." 
familiarizing themselves with the sf)ils m 
the area The contest itself uas held on 
Saturday despite the adverse acatluM 
conditirjns. The rain left the dediratnl 
judgers standing in muddy pits with 
water past their ankles and writing on 
soggy, muddy scorecards. 

After each contestant had judged the 
four soil pits, the scorecards were hand 
ed in and the results were announced 
The results were as follows: 

First - Cornell University 
Second — University of Maryland 

Third — Penn State University 

Fourth — Delaware Valley College 

I'ifth — University of Rhode Island 

Sixth — University of New Ffampshire 

Seventh — Rutgers University 

Although the Del Val team didn't win 
the contest, it made a strong 4th place 
showing High scorers on the team were 
Dave Reeder (983 pts), who placed 
lOth individually, Tom Benusa (9.5.'^ 
pts), and Tammy Michna (919 pts ) 
Other members of the team were Nancy 
Bulanchuk. Deb McCallum, Polly Eck, 
Karen Silvius. Seth Bacon. Chris Bren 
nan. Sue Eck. and Rich I.eyh. 

The soil judging team would like to 
thank Dr, Palkovics for all his time and 
effort he put into the team. Without his 
support and dedication this year's team 
would not have been possible. 

Whtn h Going To Happen To Segal 
Hall When The New Student Store 
Comes? Will The Post Office Be In 
Segal Hall And Why Isn't The Post 
Office In The Student Center? 

by Jamie Beck 

The original plan for the new student 
center was to have the post office in it. 
The architect, who is doing the student 
center, had trouble fitting the post office 
into the center, so the planners are hav 
ing it in Segal Hall. The whole f4rst fbor 
of Segal is being converted into a new. 
modern post office. It will contain 
facilities for teachers, on-campus 
students, and commuters. Dr. Arthur 
Wolf. Vice President for Planning and 
Financial Affairs, said that it would be a 
good solution to the problem. Since 
Segal Hall is in the middle of the cam- 
pus, it is easier for all people to go there. 
The new post office, however, will not 
open until the new student center is 
completed on its tentative date in 1983.

A few miles from the Magic Kingdom 
— and beyond the boundaries of im- 
agination — Walt Disney's greatest 
dream has become reality EPCOT 
Center opened October 1st, 1982. A 
showplace more than twice the size of 
the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT Center 
represents the ultimate in Disney- 
Imagineered entertainment It's an 
entertainment experience that will thrill 
your most thrillable sense of all — 

"There's enough land here to hold all 
the ideas and plans we can possible im- 
agine." Walt Disney said in announcing 
"Project, Walt Disney Worid." And in 
the master plan for these 43 square 
miles he incorporated the ideas and 
philosophies of a lifetime. 

Central to these plans was Walt's last 
and greatest dream. EPCOT — Experi- 
mental Prototype Community of Tomor- 
row. "If we can bring together the 
technical knowhow of American industry 
and the creative imagination of the 
Disney organization, " Walt Disney said. 
"I believe we can build a community that 
more people will talk about and come to 
look at than any other area in the world." 

Today WED "Imagineers" have final- 
ized their many concepts and ideas in 
order to bring Walt's dream of EPCOT to 
reality. EPCOT Center consists of two 
major ihcme areas. Future World and 
the World Showcase. 

FUTURE WORLD - The "American 
Enterprise Forum" poses the challenging 
and previews alternatives and choices for 
the "Community of the Future," building 
on the values and opportunities of the 
Free Enterprise System. 

The principal components of Future 
World include a major Introductory 
Theme Show, "Spaceship Earth"; Com- 
muniCore, "The Global Marketplace of 
New Ideas" bringing the public into direct 
interface with industry; and a series of 
major pavilions, each a '-world" of its 
own. exploring Energy, Transportation, 
the Seas, the Lands. Imagination, and 
other subjects vital to the futuue of 

WORLD SHOWCASE - Imagine in 
one day . . . you've breakfasted on tea 
and biscuits in England and followed the 
roads leading to Rome; lunched in a 
Bavarian Beer Garden during Oktober- 
fest; explored the interior marvels of a 
major pyramid; crossed the vast ex- 

panses of Canada and the Great Wall of 
China; relaxed by a clear bhie pond in 
the formal gardens of a Japanese Pa- 
goda; dined in gourmet splendor under a 
moonlit Eiffel Tower; and watched more 
than 350 years of American history 
come to life in one of the most inspiring 
theatrical experiences ever conceived. 
In World Showcase, yoct will do all this 
and more. Here amid nations standing in 
friendship beside a broad lagoon, you'll 
live adventures that only weeks of world 
travel could surpass. You'll explore 
shops filled with unusual foreign goods, 
dine in restaurants filled with the aroma 
of authentic foreign foods, and meet the 
young people of foreign lands working 
together in the true family of man. 

"If we can bring the technical 
knowhow of the American industry and 
the creative imagination of the Disney 
organization together — I am confident 
we can create right here in Disney 
World, a showcase to the world of the 
American free enterprise system."

of Walt Disney World, and Walt Disney's

Frustration Panic! Nervousness! 
Sleepless nights! Pencils breaking in the 
middle of writing an essay! Shaky hands! 
These phrases sum up what is known as 
... midterms. 

Midterms can be terrifying to most 
people The anxiety often overwhelms 
students. Some people even get "edgy." 
So if you accidentally spill a cup of coffee 
on your roommates midterm report the 
night before its due. don't be surprised if 
he or she "spazes" out on you and tells 
you to lap it up (By the way. why was 
your roommate partying the night be- 
fore! He or she knew time was running 
out) . 

Good job! You stuff your roommate's 
face with it. because you too ere edgy. 
Then a chain reaction occurs. Your next 
door neighbor bursts iivto your rcxjm and 
tells you two to quiet down (m a not too 
friendly tone) Keep up fhe good work! 
You "'spa/' out on your neighbor and it 
turns out that you and your roommate 
stuff his face with the term paper Now 
all hell breaks loose and <ioon not lUst 
two people are invoK\'fl but a few more 
are yelling M earb otliu 

Slow down! Relax! Cool off! Midterms 
aren't that bad. Take them one step at a 
time Everything will work out all right. I 
know you've heard this before, but . . . 

Ah-no! I'm sitting writing this and I

Aggies Outlast Warriors 

by Mel Balliet 

Delaware Valley went into the game 
knowing they had to win to keep alive 
any hope of their third MAC North 
crown, and with the help of a large 
Parent's Day crowd, the Aggies played 
like a team who had everything to lose, 
as they built a 21-3 lead before winning 

The Aggies defense got the first score 
of the game when they laid a hit on 
Lycoming's Joe Schmid, knocking the 
ball into the air, and Jeff Sneeringer on a 
heads up play grabbed the ball and raced 
23 yards for the score. Bob Hudoka 
kicked the first of three extra points and 
with 4:54 remaining in the first quarter 
the Aggies had a 7-0 lead. 

The Warriors got back into the game 
with 2:44 left in the half when Lance 
Spitler. who had missed a 27-yard at- 
tempt early in the second quarter, hit a 
41-yarder. But, the Aggies would not die 
as they moved 73 yards on just six plays. 
In the drive quarterback Tom O'Neill hit 
Dan Glowatski on two plays for 37 yards 
and Nick Russo covered 26 yards on a 
draw play for the score and a 14-3 half 
time lead. "1 called a draw because of the 
pass rush we were getting and because 
that's been a very effective play for us all 
season long. Nick runs it very well. Tom- 
my executes it very well, and I think they 
were looking for us to throw," said 
Coach Wilson. The Aggies did get or • 
more possession before the half wheii 
Mike Harbold intercepted a Domenic 
Pacitti pass. The Warrior defense stop- 
ped the Aggies but did not stop Eric 
Reynolds as he swept the left side, as 
time ran out, for six yards and 2003 for 
his career. 

In the third quarter Warrior punter 
Doug Schonewolf hobbled a low snap 
and was tackled at the Aggies' 40- yard 
line. The Aggies took advantage of the 
field position, as well as overcoming a 
quarterback sack and a holding penalty, 
when Eric Reynolds went three yards off 
left tackle for the touchdown. The tally 
marked the first time Del Val broke the 
plane of the goal in the third quarter this 
season, something Coach Wilson said 
was one of the goals for the game. 

The Warriors, down 21-3 after three 
quarters, were not finished as they took 
their first fourth quarter possession 47 
yards on four plays, including a 46-yard 
pass from quarterback Dominic Pacitti to 
slot back Joe Noone, followed by a one- 
yard touchdown by Mike Santoleri. The 
Warriors went for the two-point conver- 
sion but Ron Verra thwarted the attempt 
when he stepped in and caught Pacitti's 

The Aggies now just had to hold onto 
the ball, but a good hit kncxrked the ball 
out of Nick Russo's hands and Lycoming 

recovered on the Aggie 46-yard line. 
The Warriors again wasted no time get- 
ting to the end zone as Pacitti caped a 
five-play drive with a 12-yard scoring 
strike to Jeff Wert. Lance Spitler set up 
for the extra-point but the Warriors faked 
the kick and threw instead to Bill Simon- 
ovich who caught the ball but was out of 
the end zone, making the final score 
21-15. The Warriors did try an onsidc 
kick with just 2:19 remaining in the 
game, but Nick Russo took the ball en- 
ding Lycoming's comeback hopes. 

Lycoming had good field position for 
most of the afternoon but you must give 
credit to the Aggie defense who. more 
often than not. stopped them cold, 
allowing only 35 yards rushing. With the 
defense doing their job. the offense also 
turned in a fine performance as Tom 
O'Neill and Dan Glowatski connected six 
times for % yards and Nick Russo and 
Eric Reynolds rush for 93 and 66, 

"The big thing is that we scored when 
we had to score, we put a drive together 
when we had to put a drive together and 
kept the ball away from them at the 
end," said Coach Wilson. "I thought the 
team played extremely well; I think we 
had some breakdowns but I think we 
played the toughest opponent that we're 
going to play." 

The Aggies will travel to East Orange, 
.New Jersey today for a Friday night 
game against FDU-Madison. 


The Aggies MAC Northeast record 
dropped to 2-1 last week as they were 
defeated by Wilkes 3-0. The Aggie over- 
all record, with the help of a 3-2 victory 
over Gwynedd Mercy, now stands at 

The Aggies offense controlled the time 
of possession and had excellent ball 
movement against Wilkes but despite 
plenty of scoring opportunities were 
unable to capitalize. 

The offensive line also controlled the 
ball most of the game against Gwynedd 
Mercy but the difference was three goals, 
including two by all-time career record 
holder Diane Bradley. Claudia Krebs 
added the other Aggie tally. 

The Aggies will play at Widener on 
Monday but will be at home on Wednes- 
day to host Scranton.

The women's volleyball team once 
again met Penn State Ogontz last Thurs- 
day. The Aggie Spikers went five games 
taking the first (15-11) and fourth (15-6) , 
Ogontz took the second (8-15). third 
(1 1- 15) . and fifth (10- 15) games to win a 
tough 3-2 decision. 

Coach Frederick said. "The women 
made a fantastic transition from one 
coach to another. They played well." 

The volleyball team meets Muhlen- 
berg at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday The 
game is at home so come out and sup- 
port the lady spikers. 


The Aggies men beat Lycoming 15 50 
but lost to Scranton 25-30 and Sus- 
quehanna 23-34. The men are now 6-8 
for the season. Co-captain Rich Weaver 
finished second overall. Co-captain Ed 
Kuri was fifth. Ken McDaid was seventh, 
Jeppe Christiensen was eighth and Gary 
Kampmeyer finished twelfth.

It was a bad week for the Aggies as 
they dropped three straight Middle 
Atlantic Conference contests. 

Loses to Albright (5-1). FDU-Madison 
(5-0) , and Ursinus (3-0) left the Aggies 
with a 2-6 record on the season. 

Tony Borello registered the Aggies' 
only goal of the week. Borello now has 
two goals on the season. Goalie Suren 
Pakhtigian was injured late in the game 
against Albright. Fred Mundt replaced 
him against FDD. The two split the net 
minding duties against (Jrsinus. 

The Aggies will play at Kings tomor- 
row, and will return home on Wednes- 
day to face Allentown. 


The women improved their record to 
7-0 by beating Lycoming 15-50 and 
Scranton 16-47. Jeanne Cranney kept 
her first place winning streak with a time 
of 20:56. Gail Keleher came in second. 
Sue Kulp was third, and Chris Frazer was 
third. Brenda Givler. Kim Hack. Lauren 
Clawson, and Liz Trimble finished sixth 
through ninth. The D.V.C. women ac- 
counted for eight of the first 10 finishers. 


The Newman Club is a new D.V.C. 
club that sponsors trips, carpools to 
church on Sunday, and. in the future, a 
trip to Our Lady of Czesfochowa Shrine. 
This group was started last year. 

The first Newman group was started in 
1893 in memory of Cardinal John 
Henry Newman, who died in 1890. Car- 
dinal Newman was bom in London in 
1801. He became a scholar and a 
preacher of the Church of England at 
Oxford University In 1846, Newman 
became a Roman Catholic priest and is 
considered one of the great thinkers of 
the 1800's. 

The DVC Newman Club is one of 
some 1200 Newman scK:ieties serving 
colleges and universities throughout the 
country. The combined national mem- 
bership of all Newman Clubs is over one 
and a half million students. 

Come on out and be one of the one 
and a half million students involved in 
the Newman Club. It is a worthwhile ex- 
perience. Our meetings are every other 
Thursday in Segal Basement at seven. 

Apiary Society — On Thursday, Oc 
tober 7. the beehouse was once again 
buzzing with activity. Doc Berthold 
enlightened Apiary members with a brief 
detailed explanation of honey processing 

— from raw honey in the comb to the 
more refined honey found in bottles. As 
far as regular club business is concerned, 
club t-shirts weie again passed out, and 
honey was picked up by members to sell. 
Later in the evening honey was bottled 

— a sticky process! As an added attrac- 
tion, it was 3lso pojDcorn night at the 
beehouse. Honey can be purchased 
from any club member in either spread 
or liquid form. Liquid honey is also 
available in cute little honey bears, 
which, by the way. are great for water 
fights once the honey is used! 

The D.V.C. Theatre Club is proud 
to annouce that they will be performing 
two 1-act plays this semester: Adapta- 
tions and The Diary of Adam and Eve. 
Tryouts are on October 19. For more in- 
formation contact Paul Caruso. Elson

Green and Gold, excitement, floats.

Long nights are spent creating and 
completing the final touches on floats 
and spirit cars, it all begins with the Pep 
Rally held on Friday night, the spirit is re- 
juvenated throughout the crowd, giving 
off winning anticipation for the sports 
teams in their games on Saturday.

The annual DVC parade begins through 
town. The sidewalks are crowded with 
Alumni, students, and townspeople 

who anxiously await the site of the color 
floats and spirit cars. 

Plans for Homecoming begin early in 
the semester. The weeks are filled end- 
lessly with meetings, deciding on a topic 
and the organization of clubs. This year, 
the theme is Country Fair. The theme is 
to be incorporated into each float and 
spirit car which are judged during the 
parade, the judges are stationed by the

and I had a very different experience at 
the Mercer Castle (Fonthill). The Bucks 
County Historical Society gave a benefit 
for the public that was really spectacular; 
thanks to our Delaware Valley College 
Chorale and our Advanced Floral Design 
students. The entire building inside was 
decorated with flowers and plants with a 
romantic theme (including the bath- 
rooms). The music was lovely, the floral 
displays excellent with decent lighting, 
the refreshments delicious, and the 
temperature pleasant. 

Congratulations to everyone at DVC 
who made this possible; especially Dr.

Fonthill Revisited 

by Mr. Benner, OH. Dept. 

it is now called Fonthill Museum, but I 
still think of it as the Mercer Castle. 
About fifteen years ago. the only way to 
go through the interior was to go over 
and hope that Dr. Mercer's housekeeper 
was home and would take you on a tour. 
On a cold, cloudy October afternoon, a 
small group knocked at the door of the 
castle. Presently, a noise was heard in- 
side and then the door opened The 
housekeeper. Mrs. Swaim, let us in and 
passed a small basket around for dona- 
tions before she would take us to see the 

it was a strange, weird, and spooky 
experience; colder inside than out and 
with practically no light anywhere. I was 
glad finally to get outside again.

to the Editors: 

Dear Editors: 

Doesn't this college realize that when 
the seasons change and fall rolls around, 
the temperature will drop and heat will 
be needed in the dormitories? This week 
they knew it was going to get cold. The 
forecasters had been predicting it and 
anybody with any thermal receptivity 
could feel the decline in temperature. 
But it took a cold night a lot of complain- 
ing to raise the heat in Cooke and 
Barness. Then they decided perhaps it 
was time to start the system up and hope 
it works. Luckily it took the maintenance 
man only about 8 hours on Sunday night 
to get heat into the dorms, much to the 
relief of the residents and several 
students who had contracted colds and 
didn't need anymore aggravation to their 

Once again this college shows its short 
sightedness and lack of preparation for 
the inevitable Meanwhile on the other 
side of campus, while Cooke and Bar- 
ness wait in blankets for heat, Berkowitz 
has had heat all summer. High level 
planning you know never needs an ex- 
planation because they couldn't come up 
with one if they had to. 


Dear Editors: 

Question; What goes from 50° to 80° 
in one day? 

Answer. The dorms at Del Val. To 
make this as brief as possible, it seems 

A.V. Advantages! 

B\; Paul Caruso 

The A V. Department of the Kraus- 
kopf Memorial Library is equipped with 
many new types of technical equipment 
for student use. Any student, on or off 
campus, has the privilege of checking 
out this equipment for college use. 

Seniors preparing seminars and other 
students doing reports for classes are 
informed to take advantage of this 

For seminars, a copy-stand for slide 
making is available. Slides are taken 
from books, magazines, and articles 
with a 35 mm camera. Slide film is also 
available at a minimal fee. Students are 
informed that it is their duty to have the 
film developed. After slides have been 
developed, a slide sorter may be used to 
sort the slides. Slide projectors and slide 
carousels are also available to be check- 
ed out for seminar use. For seminar 
purposes only, a 35 mm camera may be 
taken out on loan. 

ridiculous for residents to be subjected to 
frostbite one day and heat stroke the 
next. The excessive heat is so stifling that 
the only remedy is to open the windows 
both day and night. In view of this, it 
seems obvious that college money is 
pouring out the windows to heat all of 
Doylestown. Can the temperature not be 
controlled? Is there no solution? 



Dear Commuter 

I would like to bring to your attention a 
problem that may progress with the 
changing season For the commuter, 
possibly the only quiet space on campus 
is the library, actually that's not always 
true. Besides the occasional noise level 
problem . the temperatures maintained in 
this building aren't exactly conducive to 
learning, studying, or staying healthy. 
When I walk in and have problems fin- 
ding the librarian beneath her ski- wear 
and wool blanket. I know I'll regret not 
wearing my thermal underwear and 
down comforter. It is impossible to sit in a 
single position longer than 10 minutes 
without ones nails and lips turning blue. 
Within a '2 hour manual dexterity is lost 
to numbness and I'm on my second box 
of tissues. With curtains closed tight and 
a shelf of books barricading the sill and 
air vent, a polar gale manages to whistle 
through, blowing notes in all directions. 
On occasion 1 find myself sneaking past 
the frostbitten librarian with a cup of hot 
chocolate or coffee just to keep brain 
cells in motion. Are there any rules 
against the use of butane heaters in the 
library? Rabbi Krauskopf would be turn- 
ing in his grave if he knew students were 
being discouraged from making use of 
this fine facility. Since I am unable to at- 
tend student government meetings. 1 am 
requesting that you present this problem 
before the proper individuals. 


Merry Wind 

PS. This college employs some very 
hearty librarians! They live with this daily. 

Dear Merry Wind, 

I submit your suggestion to Ram Pages 
because I feel it is important enough to 
show others your concern which you 
took time to voice, expressing sentiments 
of many other students who feel the 
same way, I'm certain that this request is 
basic and won't fall on deaf ears, 

I wish to encourage other commuters 
to use the suggestion box in Segal Hall, 
On behalf of the entire student popula- 
tion that travels to and from school daily. 
thank you! 

John Grazul 
Ed Herrmann 


Other equipment that may be used 
for seminars and other types of reports 
are listed as follows; 

A Large-Print typewriter for labeling 
headings and report covers, a Krey Let- 
tering Machine for extra large letterheads 
and reports. Overhead transparencies 
may be obtained at a quarter a coF>y 
You may also borrow transparencies 
and copy them with water soluable ink, 
then return transparencies after use. 

There are microfilm and microfiche 
reader-printers available for use in the 
library to obtain information from peri- 
odicals. T.V, cameras may be checked 
out for video film making. Last, but cer- 
tainly not least, rock tapes and records 
may be listened to on the stereos and 
tape players in the booths on the lower 
level of the library. 

There are many advantages of using 
the A.V, Department and students arc 
informed that it's there for their use. 
Please take pride in borrowing and us- 
ing this machinery so that others who 
come later may also have the privilege 
of using them. 

The Oaks 

by Mike Jaskolka 

In spite of the many kinds of restau- 
rants that serve many different kinds of 
food, most of us can't afford to go out to 
enjoy a good meal once a week, I have 
found a restaurant that caters to the thrif- 
ty folk, and puts out a reasonably priced 
Kgpnu The Oaks, nestled up on north 
611. is just such a place, warm and cozy 
Usually when a restaurant has low 
prices, the food matches the price. low in 

quality, but not this place. 

The Oaks has a rustic decor: one gets 
the feeling of walking into a country farm 
house dining room. Many old farm im- 
plements and antique cookware adorn 
the walls. The place is small and this was 
one of the drawbacks. It is crowded most 
of the time, and a look at the menu 
shows why. 

When I got my salad, I thought it was 
going to be one of those places that have 
both low prices and low quality food. It 
was a couple of pieces of lettuce, a piece 
of tomato, and store-bought dressing. 
When my entree arrived, home roasted 
turkey with old fashion dressing (5. .SO) 
my tune changed. It was a generous por- 
tion of turkey covering the dressing, 
which also had a pleasant taste. Two 
vegetables were also included with the 
meal. I chose the mashed potatoes — 
real potatoes, not instant, and home 
made bread was also a part of the meal 
It wasn't hot. but it did add to the homey 
atmosphere Other menu entrees in 
elude Tbone steak. 14 oz. (8 50). stuff 
ed flounder (6.25). fresh sea scallops 
(5.75). shrimp in the basket (5.50). and 
veal parmesan (4 95) All entrees in- 
clude a salad, two vegetables, home- 
made bread and butter. A few entrees 
that really caught my eye were honey 
dipped chicken (4 50). smoked ham 
steak (5,25). and the lobster tail (9.75). a 

special note is that all prices at The Oaks 
are under $10 (K) 

They also offer appetizers, side orders, 
and a host of homemade desserts. Din 
ner for two with dessert and beverages 
will be between 13 and 22 dollars. 

They invite you to bring your own 
wine or spirits with you. This is a real 
meat and potatoes place and a nice place 
to have dinner. 

The Oaks is kxrated on Rt 611 north, 
about ten miles from the college It is 
open 7 days a week, and reservations 
art' not required, but they are very busy 
around dinner time

A New Look! 

by Jeannie Meyer 

How many of you noticed that securi- 
ty has a new look? If you did notice, 
then you receive an A. for security does 
have a new look with a new station 
wagon and van. 

After security's old car wore out. they 
obtained the station wagon from the 
athletic department. The wagon has 
seventy-four thousand miles on the 
odometer. Previous to security's obtain- 
ing the vehicle, the wagon was being us- 
ed by the athletic department for three 
years. The van has been in use for over 

a year, and it also has seventy four 
thousand miles on the odometer. 

The wagon and van are used as a taxi 
service for on and off campus students. 
The wagon and van make runs back 
and forth to the infirmary, the 
Doylestown Hospital, the farms and 
dairy, field trips, and security checks. 
This is a twenty-four hour service for the 
use of all D.V,C. students. During the 
day. security has a four-man shift to 
keep up this service, At eleven p,m, the 
manpower drops to three. 

Next time when you see the new sta- 
tion wagon or van making one of those 
trips, appreciate it because next time 
you may be the one who needs the use 
of the wagon or van.

Fly By Night 

by Bud H. and Warren L. 

First they were in the barns of Farm 
Three and the Dairy. As time progressed 
they found themselves in the classroom, 
then they tormented the commuters, 
and as I sit here writing this story, one is 
crawling up my leg They can enter and 
(ill one's life with horror. It can happen to 
anyone. They swarm in large numbers 
They are none other than ... the 
Piranha fly. 

As the temperature drops outside, 
these little "beasts" seek shelter from the 
cold. I walked into Segal Hall one day 
early this semester, and I was surprised 
to see flies clinging to the walls Some 
dive bombed at the commuters as they 
innocently went about their business. 
Flies were annoying: but it soon turned 
to torment. 

A few weeks later, the flies moved into 
the dorms. Everywhere I went, there 
were these menacing creatures waiting . 
. . waiting . . . waiting. They're sneaky! 
They invade without a noise. They don't 
want to be heard, but soon they make 
their presence known. One day I walked 
into my room — flies were all over. It 
looked like a scene from Amitt^ville Hor- 
ror. 1 freaked. Taking a rolled up 
newspaper in hand. I attacked them in a 
heated fury I was a man possessed. 
Swat! "Number 34." I yelled excitedly 
Swat! "35!" After 1 had completed my 
task, I realized something must be done 
to combat the dreaded Piranha fly. I 
decided to form a highly trained combat 
unit called the "Swat Squad." 

1 enlisted one member and we both 
agreed to take upon ourselves the task of 
ridding the dorm of the pcsty invaders 
With a fly gun in one hand and a rolled 
up newspaper in the other I swatted and 
squashed the creatures in the "air war" 
tactics. My friend killed many himself 
with his Texas fly swatter. After he and 1 
had finished, we both counted and 
tallied a casualty report. 

Thinking we had obliterated the dreadful 
beasts, little did I know what awaited me 
the next day. The flies had gathered ear- 
ly the next morning in a counter-attack of 
frenzied activity as I tried to sleep. (They 
know this is the time when most of us are 
vulnerable.) I was attacked by dozens 
and became a landing strip for others. I 
yelled "That does it." and jumped out of 
bed. took newspaper in hand, and went 
to war. By the time my roommate had 
awakened, carnage was about the room. 
My roommate had to calm me down, for 
I was in a heated rage. 

The following morning 1 was swarmed 
on in the dining den of unearthy delights. 
I made futile attempts to guard my 
edibles from the beasts but to no avail. 
We trapped one of them under glass to 
watch him suffer in a sea of Sanka. The 
death of a Piranha fly is more enjoyable 
than my friends could imagine. It has 
become an obsession that I can not rid 
myself of. 

As the temperature continues to drop, 
the devilish dive bombers will soon 
disappear with the warm weather. By 
November they will be only a memory, a 
splat on the wall, or moosh on the back 
of an old paperback. We bid these curl- 
winged muscidae farewell until we meet 
again next year — and we shall be ready 
and waiting to kill again. 


The New Water Tank 

by Jamie Beck 

A new water tank has been put in. It is 
behind Eisner Hall, near the green- 
houses. The tank is make of steel and is 
painted green and holds 400.000 gallons 
of water The water tank is here for safe- 
ty reasons and for fire fighting purposes 

The college has been working with the 
fire companies in Doylestown and Chal- 
font; the firemen are being trained for 
hooking up their hoses to the tank in 
case of fire. This is only the first step, the 
second step is to get a high pressure 
pump. The reason for this is so the fire 
fighters will not have to bring their pump 
to the site. 

After they put in the pump they will in- 
stall lines to the existing fire hydrants. 
They will need an additional $25. OCX) to 
purchase the pump, which is on a part of 
a five-year financial plan. The pump is 
on a high priority list, and is planned to 
make the money for the pump within 
five years. 

The water tank is now available for use 
as an additional source of water for 
fighting fires. Besides the water tank, 
there are two other things that will help 
fight in the case of any fires. The first 
thing is the fire hydrants, second is the 
water tank, and third, in case of a really 
bad fire. Lake Archer will be used. 





1:00 PM. 

I was wondering as I saw the leaves 
falling, if man's destiny is guided by the 
same force that puts the leaves in their 
final resting place, it was obvious to see 
that every leaf was affected in a very dif- 
ferent way. Some just fell to tfte^round. 
quiet and serene. Others, though, were 
swept across tfie way breaking into small 
undistlnguishable pieces. Could there be 
a reason why one leaf dies quietly while 
another seems to explode, exclaiming it's 
short-lived existence? Maybe these oc- 
currences are shown to us to make our 
understanding of life clearer. Are leaves 
really what life is about? Truth or im- 
agination — it's anyone's guess.

Roommate Review 

by Leslie Blatt 

How many times has your roommate 
kicked you out for the night? What 
animal does your roommate remind 
you of? Is your roommate's worst habit 
picking his nose or eating peanuts off 
the floor? 

On Tue.sday. October 19. you could 
have heard many answers to these 
questions plus many more if you were 
at the Roommate Game in the dining 

The Resident Assistants who spon- 
sored the event, challenged the twenty- 
four participating couples on their 
know.!fedge of their roommate. 

There were four rounds with approx- 
imately six couples in each round. The 
winner of each round won a $25 gift 
certificate to the student store and then 
went on to the final round. 

The final round consisted of two 
sophomore couples, one pair of 
seniors, and the winning twosome, 
freshmen Kitty Keough and June 
Guzikowski who received $50 cash. 

Congratulations Kitty and June, and 
to the R.A.'s for another successful 
Roommate Game!

Aggies Dance Past Devils WOMEN'S CROSS COUNTRY 

by Mel Balliet 

On Friday the Aggies traveled to East 
Orange, New Jersey to face the Jersey 
Devils of Fairleigh Dickenson University 
i he Devils proved to be no match for 
tfie Aggies, as Del Val waltzed to a 32-7 

The Aggies took their opening drive 
70 yards on 13 plays for an early 7-0 
lead, as Eric Reynolds went in from three 
years out. In the second quarter Tom 
O'Neill hit Dan Glowatski with a 45-yard 
pass at the Devils 21 -yard line and after 
moving the ball to the one, Nick Russo 
was able to break the plane of the goal, 
to give the Aggies a 13-0 half time lead. 

Substitute quarterback Gary Kember- 
ling came off the bench in the second 
half to throw two touchdown passes. 
The first was a 45-yard scoring strike to 
Eric Cross and the second an eight-yard 
toss to Dan Glowatski. On the Aggies 
next possession, third string quarterback 
Greg McDermott took over the offense 
and on his first varsity play, turned an 
option play into a 74-yard touchdown. 

The Devils did manage to get on the 
scoreboard in the closing minutes of the 
game, but it was too little, too late as the 
Aggies rolled on to win. 

Defensively the Aggies held the Devils 
to only 10 yards rushing. Mark Bream 
led the defense with ten tackles, six 
assists, and two sacks. Eric Reynolds led 
the Aggies ground attack as he rushed 
for 132 yards, while Nick Russo added 
92 yards to the running game. Tom 
O'Neill completed seven passes for 132 
yards and sub Gary Kemberling went 6 
for 8 for 92 yards, giving the Aggies 224 
yards via the airways.

one 13-15, the Aggies came back with 
winners in the next three games: 15-11, 
15-9, and 15-10. Missy Young was high 
scorer in this game. 

Coach Maureen Frederick said, "This

Johanna Geiger. Miss Geiger actually ar 
rived at farm three in June but tliii; is not 
her first time at DVC She graduated 
from here with a degree in animal 
hubandry in 1980, and is originally from 
the Doylestown area. Prior to coming 
back to Del Val she worked for 1 ' 2 years 
in Virginia as an assistant sheepherdess 
for 1200 ewes. Prior to this job anti 
following graduation she'spi'nt A months 
in Germany working on <i [wi <ind crop 
farm. She learned of the position after 
talking to [)r. Hofsaess concerning 
another opening. 

She enjoys her job as assistant herds 
person and is in charge of the sheep arxl 
swine operations. Johanna is also respon- 
sible for filling in when Mr. Ciilbcrt. 
superintendent of farm three . is away for 
such things as judging trips. She also en 
joys the educational atmosphere, the op 
portunity to work with four species and 
directly with the veterinary. , 

Miss Geiger calls herself pro- DVC and 
is very supportive of the program here 
and feels it is one of the best around If 
an individual is interested in trying to 
learn as much as possible they can take 
advantage of the technique classes. 

In the future Johanna would like to go 
onto grad school for reproduction with 
an emphasis on sheep. Right now how- 
ever, she is looking forward to working 
"down on the farm" and the responsibili- 
ties and challenges that come with it

Ms. Stephanie Soltis-Moss 

by Warren Lewis 

Ms. Moss is the new superintendent of 
the greenhouses both on campus and at 
the Burpee complex. 

A typical day for Ms Moss starts out at 
6:30 a.m She arrives here at 8:1.S. Her 
first duties are to unlock the greenhouses, 
check the temperature in the houses, 
and water the wide variety of crops. 
Here and at Burpee's most of the water 
ing is done by hand, which Ms. Moss 
prefers over automatic watering systems. 
Some advantages of hand watering are: 
1) the experience of proper hand water- 
ing techniques; 2) assuring even water- 
ing throughout the crops, and: 3) sup- 
plying adequate nutrients and fertilizers. 
Other aspects of greenhouse work in- 
clude transplanting, delivering plants, 
spraying for insects, fungi, and plant 

When Ms. Moss first arrived at Del-Val 
after working at Penn State, she found 
our facilities to be larger than she ex- 
pected In fact, our total greenhouse 
space (25.000 sq. ft.) is more than that 
in any other college in the Mid-Atlantic 

Some advantc^ges of working here are 
being able to help students with problems 
such as helping to make arrangements. 

Mr. Moss expects to help out with 
floriculture labs when necessary. She 
said it is all part of the territory. She

to the Editors: 

Dear Editors: 

Have you backed your car up lately 
and gotten a flat tire? I'm sure its happen- 
ed to many. Wherever you walk on cam- 
pus you trip over beer bottles, soda c^ns, 
trash, and more trash. It's disgusting. 
With all this trash on the ground, the ad- 
ministration should do something about 
it. like place garbage cans around, espe- 
cially in the parking lot. Chain them to 
the light posts if there is worry that they'll 
walk away. Economically and aestheti- 
cally it is more feasible to spend a little 
time and money to buy garbage cans 
than to spend the money and labor to 
pick, up scattered trash. 



Dates for preregistration are: Novem- 
ber 3. 4. 5. 8. 9. 10. 1982. in your 
Department Chairman's or Advisor's

Hall. Room 18, Ext. 280. 

The Graduate Record Exam will also 
be given on February 5. April 23. and

tional information.

Progress Report 

of the 
Student Center 

by Jean Meyer 

I am glad to report that the progress 
of the new Student Center is good. The 
construction of the bulding is running as 
planned. The administration still hopes 
to have the building under roof before 
the bad weather arrives. During the 
winter months, work will be done on the- 
inside of the building. 

There have been no major alterations 
made on the building, but there have 
been a few minor changes — concern- 
ing the location of the club offices. 
These minor changes will not affect the 
completion deadline. 

The date for completion for the new 
Student Center is set for August 1983, 
and it should be occupied by September 
1. 1983. 


The results for the 1982 Homecom- 
ing Parade float and spirit car judging 
are as follows: Floats — 1st place went 
to Block and Bridle. 2nd place to Biol- 
ogy. 3rd place to Horticulture, and tied 
for 4th place were Business Club and 
Dairy Society. Spirit Cars — 1st place 
went to Floral Society and 2hd place to 

The results for the 1982 Homecom- 
ing Queen competition are as follows:

Dear Aggie 

Dear Aggie, 

Recently I received an invitation to become involved in a new group on cam- 
pus. I would really like to be a part of this group, however, I am already involved 
in many campus activities. I don't want to spread myself too thin but I also want 
to get the most out of my time here. What should I do? 



Dear Unsure, 

This is a problem with many students because there are so many interesting 
clubs and activities on campus. Since you were invited and are very interested in 
joining this group you should try it for a week or two just to see if it can fit into 
your schedule. Within a week or two you should be able to tell if you are 
spreading yourself too thin. If you find that it is just too much this semester 
maybe you could try joining next semester. Maybe next semester drop one of 
your other activities to fit this one in just to get the experience that this group 
could provide. You will get the most out of your time here if you stick to a few 
things that you are really interested in.

An Exercise in Fortuity 

by Paul Trembeth 

It all started with a trip to the airport to 
watch the airplanes take off and land. 
The one Paul flies is blue, Chris's 
favorite color. They had met for the first 
time only twenty minutes earlier, but 
already had become old fnends and 
soon were making plans over pizza and 
Pepsi for a camping and fishing trip. 
They would need the tent, stove, 
lantern, flashlights, fishing tackle, extra 
socks, sleeping bags. Spaghetti-0's, 
and a Monopoly game, at least. Oh, 
and don't forget Fluffy. 

Of course, the campout was to take 
place in the very distant future — nearly 
four whole weeks, in fact — and there 
would be plenty of time to amplify and 
refine their preliminary list of re- 
quirements. And, after all, they would 
be meeting in the meantime on at least 
four separate occasions. 

But their next meeting was devoted 
to building a model airplane, playing 
Pac Man and adjusting the front wheel 
bearings on the Porsche. They wondered 
how they would fit themselves and all 
that e^mping gear into that little car; 
they might be forced to take only a 
single tube of toothpaste for both of 

The meeting after that was spent on 
making, and immediately eating, choco- 
late ice cream, tent pitching practice, 
and recreating, quite without intent, the 
wreck of the old 97 on the model rail- 

On the following Sunday, they were 
prepared to settle down to serious 
business, but the weather was balmy 
and Dorney Park was about to close for 
the season. Seven whole months with- 
out the bumper cars or Thunder Creek 
Mountain were simply too horrible even 
to contemplate. The rest of the camping 
trip would have to be played by ear. 

A week later, they loaded the car and 
left for the boondocks of Upper Bucks 
and were not heard from, or of, for 
more than twenty-seven hours. Reliable 
sources report that they cooked a 
Spaghetti-0 and popcorn dinner on the 
stove at the initial campsite, then 
relocated by intermittent flashlight in the 
darkest of darkness to a second site 
where they resumed the meal with marsh- 
mallows toasted over the campfire, 
which, contrary to rumors, did not in 
fact consume the tent. They caught no 
fish, but the ones they almost caught 
were monstrous, as was the cold that 
Paul caught from Chris. It was not all a 

bed of roses; rocks would be nearer to 
the truth. Without air mattresses, they 
had no trouble waking at 4 A.M. to a 
crowing rooster and competing dog 
counter-tenor. (Could it have been a 
wolf?) A midnight call to Nature was 
somewhat impeded by a jammed zipper 
on the tent door, but necessity proved 
to be the mother of invention, although 
that zipper may never close again. 

They are back now. and undaunted 
by their ordeal in the wilderness, plan to 
do it again, after first attending to some 
chores on the home front. For instance, 
the Porsche, having proved to be a bit 
too close to the ground for off -road use, 
now needs a new muffler; there's also 
a hot air balloon to be assembled and 
flown, along with a new kite; and tour- 
ing the "haunted houses" at 
Halloween'en and watching DVC tackle 
Susquehanna on November 13th are. 
obviously, obligatory. And Fluffy must 
be checked for ticks. 

Who are these people and what are 
they up to? Chns is a nine-year-old boy 
who likes to do almost anything from 
growing, who. until recently, had to do 
much of it either by himself or else not at 
all. Paul is a little older, but has equally 
diverse interests and enough spare time 
to share them with Chris. Together, 
they are one of many Big Brother and 
Little Brother pairs now active m Bucks 

If you have ever wondered what 
kinds of things Big and Little Brothers 
do together, now you know. 

If you have ever wondered what kind 
of person gets involved in Big Brothers 
work, then just look at the by line of this 
article. Another Big Brother from the 
College community is Jim Trainer, Ad- 
missions Counselor and recent DVC 
graduate. Dr. Joseph Stenson of our 
Chemistry Department has also been a 
Big Brother. 

If you have ever wondered what it's 
like to be a Big Brother, you may be 
assured that it's fun, challenging, 
demanding and sometimes frustrating, 
like most worthwhile endeavors. But it 
is. above all, rewarding in a way which 
must be experienced to be appreciated . 

Check it out! Bucks County Big and 
Little Brothers will be guests of the 
College at the November 13th football 
game. Big Brothers staff workers will 
be on hand to provide information 
about the program and answer your 

Aggies Crush Colonels 


by Mel Balliet 

With the help of a supportive 
Homecoming crowd the Aggies put the 
squeeze on the Wilkes Colonels and 
came away with a crushing 43-0 victory. 

The Aggies set the tempo when they 
took their first possession 59 yards in 
nine plays. Eric Reynolds headed the 
drive with five carries for 31 yards, but it 
was Nick Russo who would get into the 
end zone, as he raced 23 yards on a 
delayed hand off. 

On the Aggies first play of the second 
quarter Eric Reynolds found a gaping 
hole in the right side and swept across 
the field for 59 yards, down to the Co- 
lonel 21 yard line. This trurned into a 
costly play for the Aggies as Reynolds 
was lost to a shoulder separation. Just 
two plays later quarterback Tom O' Neill 
^hit Dan Glowatski for an 18 yard score, 
giving the Aggies a 14-0 lead. 

Bob Hukoka would make the score 
20-0 before the half as he kicked a 37 
yard field goal with 1:41 remaining and 
then added one of equal length as time 
ran out in the half. 

The Aggies received the opening 
kickoff in the second half and moved 66 
yards ©n just five plays for a touchdown. 
Tom O'Neill connected with Dan Glowat- 
ski twice in the drive, including the eight 
yard scoring strike, on which Glowatski 
managed to turn the defense out only to 
cut back in for the reception. 

With 3:52 remaining in the third 
quarter it was Bob Hudoka again, this 
time from 31 yards out giving the Aggies 
a 30 - bulge. 

As time ran out in the third the Aggies 
were threatening once again and just 52 
seconds into the fourth quarter Rodger 
Kennedy dove in from four yards out. 
Less than four minutes later Emil Novak 
closed the scoring when he culminated a 
six play drive with a one yard touchdown. 
Novak carried the ball four times in the 
drive and proved he will be able to step 
in for Reynolds tomorrow. 

Ear}\; field hocke\^ action led to 
Homecoming victory;. 


Jeanne Cranney Places First 

The women's cross country team 
traveled to Allentown on Saturday for 
the PAIAW Division ill meet, where they 
faced Allentown, St. Joseph's, and the 
eventual winners Bryn Mawr. The Ag- 
gies with the help of Jeanne Cranney 
finished second. 

Cranney was victorious in the meet, 
finishing the course in a time of 19:38. 
Shoring up the Aggies second place 
finish were Gail Koleher fourth (21:16), 
Sue Kulp sixth (21:36), Kim Itack twelfth 
(22:34). Brenda Givler 13th (22:35), 
Lauren Clawson 18th (23:00), Donna

Both the mens and womens teams will 
be in action tomorrow as they host Allen-

Bob D'Arpa played the roll of the 
spoiler on what was to be the Colonels 
only bright spot on the afternoon, when 
he intercepted a tipped Eric Reidinger 
pass in the end zone with two minutes 

One can not say enough for the Ag- 
gies play, as defensively they held the 
Colonels to just 19 yards rushing. On the 
offense twelve Aggies ran the ball for 228 
yards. Eric Reynolds, despite leaving the 
game early in the second quarter, was 
the leading rusher with 90 yards, and 
was presented with the Sidney "Bruno" 
Brunwaser '20 Award as the outstanding 
player of the game. Tom O'Neill com- 
pleted eight of 13 passes, including six to 
Dan Glowatski for 108 yards. Glowatski 
had 30 receptions going into the game 
placing him .in a tie for the MAC lead in 
receiving. Bob Hudoka. who had not hit 
a field goal at home before this season, 
hit three of four while adding four of five 
PAT's to lead the Aggies scoring with 13 

The Aggies will travel to Mansfield 
State College tomorrow for a non- 
conference game against the Mounties. 


The field hockey team last week lost to 
Widener, 1-0. but bounced back with 
victories over Scranton. 2-0. and 
'Lycoming 2-0. Del Val is ranked 20th in 
the country among Division III teams as 
they have lifted their record to 7-3-1. 

Diane Bradley, the school's all-time 
leading scorer, tallied twice to beat 
Scranton. Janice McNeil was outstand- 
ing in goal, stopping fifteen shots. 

In the Homecoming game against 
Lycoming Missy Weaver and Kelly 
Kcrner each scored a goal in the second 
half to pace the Aggies. The Aggie 
defense, led by Linda Treese and Traill 
McCabe, did not allow the Lady War- 
riors a single shot on goal.

On Thursdav. October 28th. from 
A/M) to 5:30 P.M.. a rally round the 
Doylestown Courthouse was held to 
protest the Point Pleasant Pumping 
Station on the Delaware River. Over 
250 people turned out for the march 
including about fifty D.V.C. students, 
(mostly O.H. majors). All of us had a 
great time. It was a gorgeous day and 
speeches by Peter Kostmayer and Jim 
Greenwood were very encouraging. 

The majority of the people in Bucks 
County are against this project of taking 
95 million gallons of water out of the 
Delaware every day. 

Del-Aware Unlimited is going to

parking lot? Eventually the trash would 
spread all over the parking lot and back 
up onto our campus. To alleviate this 
problem the dumpsters were moved to 
the other side of the railroad tracks to 
the rear of the dorm parking lot. This 
merely moved the problem, but did 
not correct it. Now campus refuse is 
spreading into the woods, fields, and 
orchards, becoming more of a problem 
by the day. A solution should be found. 

One idea which most restaurants and 
shopping centers employ is fencing in 
the dumpster area. It is a state regula- 
tion that they do this. 

supply facilities, interconnection of 
existing supply systems, and agressive 
conservation methods including revised 
building and plumbing codes which 
promote conservation. Montgomery 
County is water rich and need to fully 
develop its own water resources before 
raiding the Delaware River. PECO can 
cool its reactor at Limerick by using the 
Schuylkill River in conjunction with 
existing and proposed reservoir sites in 
the Schuylkill basin.

As a floral designer you have approx- 
imately eleven seconds to grab a viewer's 
attention to your display. Time is critical 
when it comes to point of purchase 
advertising. The retail florist thrives on 
this advertising, which can generate 
35% of his total sales. In a six and one- 
half billion dollar industry, floral 
designers are its bread and butter. 

Here at Del Val. Dr. Martin urges his 
advanced floral design students to excel 
in the planning and executing of window 
displays, in view of the industry's 
demand for skilled designers. Dr. Martin 
has assigned his design students to create 
window displays for downtown Doyles- 
town florists. Participating florists include 
Randal /Morris. Sandy Ridge, Market 
Way Florists, and Doylestown Flower 
and Gifts. Beginning November 3rd, the 
combined efforts of both participating 
florists and Del Val design students will 
be on display. 

Dr. Martin stressed that it is a symbiotic 
relationship, allowing students to partici- 
pate in career education and having 
florists teach their expertise with the hope 
of receiving increased sales. He also 
added that the local industry was im- 
pressed with the Fonthill endeavor and 
assures me that this community project 
will set Del Val's standard of excellence, 
it's up to us to maintain it. 

To all faculty and students involved 
in group pictures for yearbook: 

The Cornucopia wishes to extend its 
most sincere apologies to any inconve- 
nience to those involved in club pictures 
for the yearbook. Due to problems with 
schedulin, the photographer was unable 
to meet for pictures. The pictures will be 
re-scheduled and notices will be posted 
around campus. Again, our most sincere 

Thank you

- Aggies Upset 

On Saturday the Aggies traveled to 
Mansfield for a tough game against the 
Division 11 Mountics, but pulled off a 
23-20 victory. 

The Mountics took an early three 
point lead on a 33 yard field but with 
3:33 remaining in the first quarter 
Cosmo Losco went in from four yards 
out. Bob Hudoka added the first of 
three PATS on the afternoon to give the 
Aggies a 7-3 lead. 

Mansfield was not to be outdone. A 
safety cut the margin to 7-5. then 
quarterback Mike Spiess connected with 
Scott D'Amato on 274 yard scoring 
strike for a 12-7 lead. The Aggies did 
get back on track before the half as 
Cosmo Losco again scored from four 
yards out with 3:37 remaining to 
make the half time score Del Val 14, 
Mansfield 12. 

In the third quarter the Aggies did all 
the scoring With 8:23 left in the third 
Tom O'Neill hit Losco on a four yard 
loft for a 21-12 lead, then with time 
running out in the third stanza Dave 
Murphy tackled Mike Spiess in the end 
zone for a safety. 

The Mounties threatened in the 
fourth and did manage to get into 
the end zone one time as Spiess hit 
D'Amato on a 27 yard toss with 3:23 
remaining but the Aggie defense kept 
the Mounties out of field goal range for 
the remainder of the game. 

The Aggie defense, as it has done a 
good part of this season stopped the 
Mansfield running game, allowing only 
one yard on 22 carries. After six games, 
the Aggies were ranked eighth in the 
country among Division 111 terms, 
against the rush allowing an overage of 
only 58.7 yards per game. This figure 
has since dropped to 46.5. 

As for the offense Cosmo Losco. 
replacing the injured Eric Reynolds, 
lead the ground attack with 91 yards 
while Nick Russo added 80. Tom 
O'Neill completed 12 of 23 attempts for 
1 19 yards. Four of O'Neill's passes were 
to Dan Glowatski for 53 yards. Glowat- 
ski needs just two more receptions to tie 
the all-time record for most catches in a 
season, at 42. 

The Aggies, who with the help of 
Lycoming's victory over previously 
unbeaten Juniata, find themselves atop 
the MAC Northern Division, will travel 
to Bethlehem tomorrow for a non- 
divisional contest against the Moravian 

EMO in action against Night Riders 'B' 
in the semifinals.

The team played the best out of three

Intramural Football 
EMO Is '82 Champ 

by Mel Balliet 

So maybe it wasn't the Super Bowl or 
even the Aggies but the intensity was 
nearly the same on Thursday for the 
Intramural Football Championship, 
between EMO and the Night Riders 'P. 

EMO. 3 1 on the season, advanced 
to the finals with a 7-2 victory over the 
Night Rider 'B', while Night Riders 'F 
handed regular season champs Gusto 
(4-0) a 13-7 defeat. 

The game started slow but EMO got 
things moving when quarterback 
Dennis Dering threw two passes to Kirk 
Durkin, the second of which was good 
for a touchdown and a 6-0 half time 

The Night Riders opened the second 
half on the offense but Rich Holmes 
intercepted his second pass of the day 
to put EMO in scoring position. Kirk 
Durkin did the rest, as he caught both 
passes in the two-play drive, to give 
EMO a 12-0 lead with 14:50 left to 
play. On EMO's next possession 
Dennis Dering completed to long 
gainers, the first to Carl Ohiinger and 
the second to Kirk Durkin who raced 
into the end zone for his third 
touchdown with just 6:10 remaining. 

The Night Riders did get one back 
late in the game when Matt Grajewski 
pulled down a pass for a touchdown, 
but it was too little, too late for the 
Riders as EMO took the intramural 
crown, 18-6.

On Saturday the Women's Cross 
Country team played host to Allen- 
town. Jeanne Cranney lead the way as 
the lady harriers coasted to a 19-42

Keleher and Sue Kulp rounded out the 
top three while Kim Hack finished 
sixth. Lauren Clawson. seventh. Jean 
Toutkoushian, eighth, and Brenda 
Givler. tenth. 

With the victory the Aggies raised 
their record to 9-1, and after dropping 
from the top of the MAC ranks last year, 
will be looking to return to the top , 
tomorrow when they travel to Lebanon 
Valley for the MAC Championships
