Drinking Demonstration 

by Bill Rein 

The purpose was to educate the DVC 
community about the legal aspects of 
drinking and driving in an effort to en- 
courage responsible behavior. ST. FA. 
— our Student Task Force on Alcohol — 
sponsored a live demonstration of drink- 
ing and its effects, Tuesday, in the Stu- 
dent Center Snack Bar. The results were 
literally "sobering." 

Members of the Pennsylvania State 
Police Alcohol Task Force presented this 
event in which participants — three stu- 
dents and three DVC staff members — 
were to consume a specified amount of 
alcohol for one hour (from approximately 
11:15-12:15). Each person (all were 
over 21) signed waivers and was assigned 
a monitor who noted the drinker's be- 
havior throughout the demonstration. 

To begin, each "drinker" was given an 
initial blood pressure check by Mrs. Wad- 
dington, the nurse who was on hand at 
all times, and each signed a blackboard 
for comparison with handwriting, while 
intoxicated, later on. Around 11:45, 
some visible effects started to show. 
There was a lot of laughing and by 12:^ 
everyone in the Snack Bar could not 
help but notice some boisterous behav- 
ior, which was quickly noted by the 
monitors. However, there were also 
many not-so-visible effects which were

On Saturday, March 31, the Delaware 
Valley College Chapter of APO Sigma 
Nu would like to extend a welcome to its 
brothers for the 1984 Sectional 91 and 
92 Conference. 

A part of the campus since 1%7, 
Alpha Phi Omega's work on the campus 
can be well noted. Our founding princi- 
ple of leadership, friendship, and service 
have been adequately met over the yearsa 
The Radio station, then WAPO, now 
WDVC was started by the brothers; they 
provided all the equipment and made its 
operation easy to turn over to the school 
once it was a success. Another service is 
'the semester book drives; the brothers 
assist in helping everyone to the coffee 
and donut tables. The biggest service to 
the campus is the operation of the used 
bookstore which is in the process of be- 
ing moved to a more convenient location 
and will be collecting books shortly. . 

APO's off campus project is a trip exh 
semester to Ockinickon Scout Reserva- 
tion where the brothers spend the week- 
end cleaning, repairing, painting, and 
even building. The brothers also bring 
laughter in the world by singing Christmas 
carols at some of the local nursing 
homes. This year's big project is the sec- 
tional conference mentioned earlier over 
this weekend. Close to 100 fraternity 
brothers will arrive to the Del Val campus 
for a day of meetings, workshops, and

Dear Editor 

I would like to comment on the letter 
by Fred Siegfried {Rampages, March 15, 
1984). Mr. Siegfried says he did not write 
"to talk about issues," but inevitably he 
has done just that, and thus has said 
things which need clarification. For ex- 
ample, he suggests that if people receive 
spiritual instruction from any source out- 
side scripture then they are "watering 
down their faith." But many Christians 
believe that the teaching of the church 
are also a valid source of truths which in- 
tensify their faith, not dilute it. On the 
same lines, Mr. Siegfried claims that 
church "doctrine does get in the way of 
learning about God's plan of salvation." 
This, again, is an offense to those of us 
who accept and love church doctrine as 
part of His plan. 

Another troubling statement is the 
writer's claim that "the Bible never men- 
tions a church that will save you, only 
Jesus Christ who is God's gift." But how 
does one attain salvation except through 
membership in the church, which was 
founded for precisely that end? It is point- 
less to try to separate church from 
founder, or Bible from church. 

it is also pointless to put the word reli- 
gious inside mocking quotation marks 
(as if to suggest unreality or negativity), 
as Mr. Siegfried did. Why attack people's 
religious background and their traditions? 
This only rends the seamless garment. 

Finally, he says, "sharing the gospel is 
what this letter is all about." Would that it 
were so; however, "sharing the gosf)el" 
te not always the same thing as the gospel. 
If it were, then how explain sincere dif- 
ferences of interpretation? It was the 
church, under divine inspiration, which 
gave us the Bible when, at the Council of 
Carthoge in 395 A.D., it decided which 
books would make up the Old and New 
Testaments, and which would not. 

Sincerely Yours, 
Edward O'Brien. Jr. 

Summer Course 

The course entitled "Agronomic Crop 
Production" will be offered for the second 
year during the first Summer Session — 
May 21 to June 29, 1984. The course 
will provide "in season " experience in all 
farming op>erations, from seedbed prep- 
aration to harvesting. While the course 
includes lecture presentation, the em- 
phasis is on practical experience, espe- 
cially field experience. 

The course is a three semester credit 
course. For certain majors, with the ap- 
proval of the respective Department 
Chairman, the student mai; be able to 
substitute it for one semester credit 
-Emplo\;ment Program (V4 of the total 
requirement) . 

The schedule for the summer will be: 
12:30 - 4:30 P.M. 
5:30 - 8:30 P.M. 
each Tuesday and Thursday; 

An additional 3-hour "Help" session 
will be scheduled during each week on a 
need basis. 

The maximum number of students will 
be limited to no more than 12. Should 
enough students regi^er, a second group 
will be scheduled on Mondai;s and 
Wednesday's at the same times. 

We strongly advise anyone interested 
in farming, especially those lacking in farm- 
ing experience, to take advantage of this 
course and register for it. 

For additional information con- 
tact Mr. Claycomb, the instructor 
in charge of the course. Dr. Prun-

Shakespeare Comedy 
at VlUanova 

Villanova Theatre will present William 
Shakespeare's comedy A Midsummer 
Night's Dream April 3-7 and 10-14. All 
performances take place at 8 P.M. in 
Vasey Theatre on the Villanova Univer- 
sity campus. William Hunter Shephard 
will direct. Call 645-7474 for information. 

A Midsummer Night's Dream is a ma- 
gical comdey of love and transformation. 
A motley crew of mortals travels into a 
enchanted forest — some to elope, some 
to rehearse a play. Supernatural pranks 
lead to sudden changes in affection, and 
soon all are lost in hilarious confusion. 
The alluring Titania finds herself enamored 
of an ass named Bottom, Helena finds 
herself pursued by everyone, and the 
devilish Puck looks on in amusement. 

Director Shephard, a faculty member 
in Villanova's Department of Theatre, 
was a founding member of Richards 
Schechner's renowned Performance 
Group, with whom he appeared as Pen- 
theus in the history- making New York 
production of Dioni;sus in 69. Drawing 
on his extensive background in innovative 
theatre, Shephard will transform the 
Vasey space into an environment for ac- 
tors and audience, utilizing platforming 
and trapezes to create an exhilarating 
athletic interpretation of Shakespeare's 
play. An integral part of the production 
will be an original electronic score by 
Philadelphia composer David Schoen- 
bach, whose amazing "bio-feedback 
music" technique turns the performer's 
body into a musical instrument. 

Performances will be given Tuesdays 
through Saturdays. Tickets are $5.00 
Tuesdays through Thursdays and $6.00 
on Fridays and Saturdays, with group 
rates and student and senior citizen dis- 
counts available. Free parking is located 
directly across from the theatre on Lan- 
caster Avenue. The campus is within 
walking distance of the Villanova stations 
of the Paoli Local and Nonistown High- 
Speed Line. 


The Chemistry Department invites stu- 
dents interested in Chemistry or related 
fields to hear Dr. James V. Derby, I.R.I. 
visiting scienctist. Sj^eak on the topic "A 
Chemist Role in Industrial Research and 
Development," on Tuesday, April 3. 
9:30 to 11:15 a.m. in room 201 in the 
Student Center. Our program is desig- 
nated to stimulate your interest as well as 
to feed the inner man: therefore, refresh- 
ments will be served. 

Dr. Cferby's talk will discuss job require- 
ments for industry and the type of work 
required and is designed to help students 
in job hunting after graduation. 

Don't miss this opportunity to further 
your education and ask questions of a 
practicing professional chemist. 

^Against All Odds" 

by Jamie Beck 

This movie, depicting a romantic tri- 
angle about two men and a woman, is 
similar to the 1947 movie, "Out of the 

As the story develops, we find that an 
aging football player (Jeff Bridges) is 
hired by a Los Angeles club owner 
(James Woods) to find his ex-girlfriend 
(Rachel Ward), who, by the way, is the 
daughter of the owner of Bridges' football 
team. Her mother and her stepfather are 
involved in a real estate scheme that 
leads to murder. 

If this seems confusing, it is. But, 
"Again^ All Odds" is an enjoyable movie 
with brilliant Mexican scenery as the 

Bridges finds the girl; will he give her 
back to the club owner or to her mother? 
O, better yet. will be keqD her for himself? 
To find out the answer to this question 
and more, see "Again^ All Odds" 

Hypnotism & ES.P. 
on Campus 

by Jamie Beck 

Hypnotist John Kollsch performed at 
the Student Center's All- Purpose Room 
on Tuesday March 13, 1984. 

One is not born with the powers of 
E.S.P. and hypnotism, one acquires 
them. Mr. Kolisch has been conversing 
with doctors about the powers since he 
was young. He said that these powers 
were viewed medically until the mid '60's 
and they were not considered as enter- 
tainment before that time. Hypnotism 
was and still is used in criminal cases, 
sports, and for conquering individual 

Artistic people are often the easiest to 
hypnotize since they use the right side of 
their brain. People usually use more of 
either the right side or the left side of their 
brain. Those who use more of the left 
side have a more logical type of thinking, 
while people who use the right side are 
moi0^ imaginative. 

Mr. Kolisch used to perform in night 
clubs, but now he usually performs at 
conventions and colleges. He performs 
at 120 colleges each year. 

The audience seemed to enjoy itself 
immensely, and I think that everyone 
had a good time. 

Dear Editor 

This letter is in regard to an article about 
the St. Patrick's Day dance on March 10. 

First of all, the band's name was Jahil. 
not Luxury. They were an excellent 
band whose sound was popular New 
Wave and quite danceable. They played 
three excellent sets, even though they 
were quite disappointed by the turnout 
and misbilled. Let us give credit where 
credit is due! 

Secondly, there were in no way sixty 
people at the dance — not at one time 
anyway. Once again, there was a disap- 
pointing turnout at a DVC dance. I sup- 
pose the draw of the registered party 
could account for the lack of people, but 
the students should give the dances a 
chance. Once in a while the bands are 
not too bad, and sometimes are even first 
rate (as in Jahil's case) . Not only that, the 
dances are free. 

Also, the advertised costume contest 
was somewhat of a farce. It seemed to 
some of us that the costumes were not 
judged on merit or time put into them, 
but on who had the most friends at the 
dance. A costume contest is one thing, 
but a popularity contest is something 
totally different. 

I just thought I would write to help get 
the facts straight. 


A Friend of the Band 

Dining Out 

by Paul Caruso 

If you're looking for a quiet, attractive 
place to wine and dine, the Inn on Blue- 
berry Hill should be at the top of your list. 
However, it is by no means your average 
restaurant. As college students you would 
probably be able to frequent this place 
maybe once or twice a year, as the prices 
are reasonable, but they may be well out 
of our price range. 

My guest and 1 dined here last month. 
The exjjcrience started with a cocktail, 
chambord, a raspberry liqueur, over frap- 
pe ice. The next thing to arrive at our 
table were the appetizers, I had mush- 
rooms escargo — mushrooms and snails 
broiled in butter and garlic and my guest 
had clams on the half shell. In place of 
our salads we had Swiss onion soup, a 
CTeamy soup with onion and Swiss cheese. 
Our entrees arrived and we began to 
feast. I enjoyed Veal Oscar which is 
tender veal smothered with crabmeat, 
asparagus, and bcmaisc sauce. My guest's 
entree was a roast duckling, a whole 
roasted duck, seasoned to taste with 
beans almondine. and potatoes. As we 
finished our meal? our coffee and dessert 
were ordered. We finished the evening 
with cheesecake and double chocolate 
mousse pie. 

It was a feast to remember The total 
price of the bill came to $57.00 including 
our service tip. This may appear to be 
expensive, but the service and quality of 
the food makes the price well worth it. 

Guests are welcome daily for luncheon 
and dinner at the historic site located 
atop a gentle ridge a few miles south of 
the county seat at Doylestown at the inter- 
section of Easton and Almshouse roads. 
Here hospitality is a three-hundred-year- 
old tradition.

Pitching, Defense Strengths 
of Aggie Softball Team 

Prior to leaving for a preseason tourna- 
ment in South Carolina, softball coach 
Ron Johnson thought he had the best 
one-two pitching punch in the Middle At- 
lantic Conference. 

Now Johnson has revised that esti- 
mate. He thinks the Aggies have the best 
one-two-three pitching punch in the 
MAC. That kind of pitching depth will be 
important since the league schedule has 
teen expanded. 

^Senior Michel Fonry and junior Carol 
Serik were the pitching mainstays John- 
son was expecting to rely on this season. 
Forry was 3-1 last year while Serik was 
4-2 with a sterling 2.64 earned run 

But senior Chris Van Arsdalen who 
hadn't pitched since she was a freshman, 
came with a strong effort down south to 
earn a spot in the rotation. 

"Most teams in our league have one 
strong pitcher," said Johnson. "I thought 
we were fortunate to have two excellent 
pitchers. But with the way Chris threw 1 
really think we have three solid pitchers." 

Although the A^ies won only one of 
the six games they played in South 
Carolina, Johnson was pleased with the 
pitching and defense. Hitting, though, 
remains a problem. 

"We hit the ball pretty hard," said the 
coach. "We just couldn't get anything to 
drop. Our defense was good and our pitch- 
ing was strong. We just didn't score 
enough runs." 

The Aggies infield is set with sophomore 
Mary Sandrock and freshman Donna 
Ackerman sharing first base, junior Deb 
Brown handling second base, sophomore 
Michele Heffner at short, and freshman 
Vicki Keener taking care of third base. 
Freshmen Penny Mimmo and Bonnie 
David as well as junior Chris MacNeil are 
infield reserves. 

Junior Barb Klouser will be the starting 
catcher with sophomore Meg Skillman 
waiting in the wings 

In the outfield Johnson has Van Ars- 
dalen in left and junior Sheryl Henry in 
center. Serik and Forry will share right 
field when the other is on the mound. 
Junior Robin Shoup who tied Heffner for 
the highest team batting average, will 
also see considerable playing time, either 
in the outfield or as designated hitter. 

"It looks like another tough year in the 
MAC," said Johnson. "Upsala looks 
very good and so does Scranton. But 1 
think our pitching is strong enough that 
we can be called a contender in the North- 
east Division this year." 


The Delaware Valley College lacrosse 
team will have its first home game of the 
season on Sunday. The Aggies will face 
Bloomsburg State on the soccer field at 
1 :30. Come out and cheer on the Aggies!

If anyone had any questions there was 
more than enough information on the 
responsible use of akohol and on new 
drunken driver legislation from the many 
pamphlets available and especially from 
the State ix>licemen themselves. This 
was a time for the "drinkers" to con- 
template their own behavior, as their 
blcKxi alcohol contents began to deaease 
(at only .015 percent per hour). All who 
attended were reminded that, even if we

The Aggies finished second to Susque- 
hanna in the Middle Atlantic Conference 
Championships last year. Rookie head 
coach Jim Eichhom is hoping a season's 
worth of experience can make up that 

The Aggies were hit heurd by graduation, 
particularly in the sprints, where the con- 
tributions of stalwarts Jeff Robinson and 
Phil Luccarelli will be missed. But with 
those who remain, as well as a solid 
group of recruits, the Aggies still have the 
nucleus of a very fine team. 

"I'm very happy with the way this team 
has developed," said Eichhom. "We had 
a good winter season and everyone is 
working hard. With a few adjustments 
here and there 1 think we'll be right in the 
running for the MAC Championship 

Al Benner, Andre Turner, Edson Bar- 
ret, and Tyler Smith have asserted them- 
selves as replacements for Robinson and 
Luccarelli. Benner, a junior out for track 
for the first time, will run the 200 and the 
400-meter events as well as the 1,600- 
meter relay. Smith, a transfer from 
Franklin & Marshall, will run the 
400- meters along with the intermediate 
hurdles and the 1,600-meter relay. Bar- 
rett, who was fourth in the MAC in the 
l(X)-meter dash last year, will also com- 
pete in the 200 and the 400. Turner will 
run the 100. the 200, and long jump. 

Other potential sprinters include Geoige 
Dimitrew, freshmen Matt Gilliano and 
Steve Caffey along with sophomore Dave 

The distance runners arc solid with 
senior Ed Kuri, sophomore Jeppe Chris- 
tiansen and sophomore Ken McDaid, who 
was third in the 3,000-meter Steeplechase 
in the MAC last year, shouldering much 
of the burden. Senior Doug Berecdti and 
freshman John Thomson should also 
help out. 

Among the hurdlers, juniors Chip Zerr 
and Dan Glowatski are the mainstays 
with Tim Ireland coming on strong. 

In field events, Steve Trostle and John 
Stella should continue as leaders in the 
shot put and discus. Jim Bauzon and Jeff 
Flower will also help. Bauzon, Glowat- 
ski, and Jim Flukey will handle the 

Junior Brandon Newell is the unques- 
tioned leader of the long and triple jumps 
while freshman Dave Keich will be a con- 
tender in the high jump along with Bruce 
Knipe and Chris Buckley. 

"I'm excited about this team," said 
Etehhom. "We've ^t the potential to be 
very good. But everyone has to continue 
working hard to reach that potential." 


The Aggies baseball team will be look- 
ing to bounce back from a disappointing 

1983 season when the Aggies open the 

1984 campaign with their annual trip to 
the Sanfard, Fforida Baseball Tournament. 

Head coach Frank Wolfgang, beginning 
his sixth season, returns 13 letterman 
from last year's 4-7-1 team. This year's 
squad, according to Wolfgang, has talent 
but is basically untested on the collegiate 

"We're very young," said Wolfgang in 
assessing his team's chances in the tough 
Middle Atlantic Conference. "It hoks like 
we have some people who can play the 
game but whether they can do the job on 
the field remains to be seen." 

The Aggies are experienced at the in- 
field comer with seniors John Spevak at 
first and Tom O'Neill at third. Both, how- 
ever, must recover from sub-par hitting 
Season's last year. O'Neill finished with a 
. 189 average while Spevak hit just .175. 

Sophomore Joe Cox is back to hold 
down shortstop while sophomore John 
Messina will start at second. Cox was a 
starter and hit .205 last year while fielding 
brilliantly. Messina saw very little playing 

The Aggies are solid in center field 
with senior Cosmo Losco who hit a solid 
.318 last year. Senior Joe Seigenfuse, 
the team's leading hitter at .410 last year, 
will move from second base to either 
right field or left field. 

Behind the plate, incumbant Clay Funk 
will be challenged by newcomers Andy 
Melillo, Jeff Gerdes, Mike Heisey, Scott 
Elinsky, and Lome Bacher. Gerdes or 
Heisey could wind up in the outfield. 

Among the infield reserves are Rodney 
Swineford, who is a first baseman, as 
well as freshmen Tom Lewandowski and 
Scott Sucoloski, who can play the other 
infiekl spots. 

Junior Bob McEvoy heads the list of 
returning pitchers. Senior Ed Chroscind<i, 
junkff Gary Kemberling, and sophomores 
Dan Porter and Emil Novak are the other 
retumees. Novak, last year's Most 
Valuable Player with .333 average and 
15 runs batted in, will play the outfield 
and serve as designated hitter when he's 
not on the mound. 

Newcomers to the pitching staff in- 
clude Mark Rother, Doug Sharpe, Dave 
Nargoski, Joe Stevenson, and Chris 

"1 really don't have any idea how we'll 
do this year," said Wolfgang. "Basically, 
I would way we're unproven as a team. 
Hopefully, the Florida Toumament will 
give us the experience we need to start 
the season."

Drinking Revisited 

by Kathy Brust 

An unusual event took place during the noon hour in the Snack Bar area on Tues- 
day, March 27. The set up began quietly, as bags of snacks, a cheese tray, a video 
tape television, and yes ~ a bar — were arranged near the far wall of the Snack Bar. 
Soon the drinkers — participants in the ST. FA. and State Police sponsored alcohol 
effects demonstration — began to arrive. Three men and three women, all over 21. 
some students, some staff, and a newspaper reporter, signed permission waivers and 
prepared to imbibe the alcoholic beverage of their choice. 

What was the meaning of this? The Students' Task Force on Alcohol and the Penn- 
sylvania State Police combined forces to present an opportunity for the six partici- 
pants and all observers to learn about the effects of drinking and driving. 

Each drinker was weighed, and based on this figure, was asked by the police to 
drink a minimum amount of liquor during the one-hour drinking phase. The amount 
specified was. according to weight charts, the amount needed to reach the legal level 
of intoxication (this translates into a blood alcohol content level of .10 percent, as 
measured by a breathalyzer) After the drinking hour, participants were given time to 
digest and absorb the alcohol into their bloodstreams. Monitors for all participants 
were carefully observing and recording the changes in their sut)ject5' appearance and 
behavior as a result of the drinking. 

Breathalyzer tests were given to each participant. The scores ranged from .08 per- 
cent (the beer drinker) to 15 percent (the wine drinker). ( ' 'Remember. ()1 percent 
is considered legally drunk) . Yet behaviors did not necessarily coincide with the legal 
drunkeness level. The wine drinker, for example, really did not "feel" drunk, and in 
fact behaved rather sedately. A mixed drink drinker, whose blood alcohol content 
level measured 12 percent, became more rowdy and vei^bal. thus displaying what 
we typically think of as drinking behaviors. As a general observation, the three non- 
student drinkers were more subdued in their actions, becoming increasingly mellow 
as the effects of the alcohol became evident. 

Participants also recited the alphabet (only two out of the six had no errors) . signed 
their names on a chalkboard, and attempted to stand and lift one foot 6" off the floor. 
In these events, the participants' performances varied greatly. Again, though, there 
appeared to be little correlation between one's legal status and how drunk one actually 

After the measurements were all taken, the police showed a videotape on the sub- 
ject of drinking and the law. again using subjects whose actions were captured on film. 
Literature was distributed and questions answered during the last part of the 

The police left pamphlets explaining the newer and stricter Pennsylvania drinking 
and driving laws which became effective in January of 1983 If you would like to pick 
up copies of these publications, come to the Residence Life Office on the second 
floor of the Student Center. We have enough for everyone.

Under the direction of first year head 
coach, Jim Eichhorn, the Aggies opened 
their 1984 outdoor season on Saturday 
at the Delaware State Relays. 

One of the many bright spots for the 
Aggies was the performance of Brandon 
Newell. Newell finished first in the triple 
jpmp with a leap of 48-10V4. setting a 
new school record and earning him an 
NCAA Championship berth. 

in the javelin, the Aggies earned a 
one-two finish. Jim Flukey's throw of 
188-2 was followed by Jim Bauzon's toss 
of 176-11 for the Aggies. A heave of 
44-3V4 earned John Stella a second 
place finish in the shot put while Jeff 
Fowler's throw of 36-7 was good enough 
for a fifth place finish. Dave Reich's jump 
of 6-4 gave him a third place finish in the 
high jump while another third place finish 
was turned in by Jeppe Christiansen in 
the SOOO-meters. Christiansen crossed 
the line in 15:14.9. 

Steve Trostle's throw of 140-6 earned 
him a fourth place in discus while Joe 
Harby's 132-4 toss was good enough for 
sixth . Ken McDaid turned in a fifth place 
finish as he covered the 1500- meters in 

The Aggies mile relay team was very 
impressive in spite of a seventh place 
finish. The team of Edson Barrett. George 
Dimitrew. Chip Zerr. and Al Benner 
covered the distance in a very respectable 

The Aggies will host Swarthmore and 
Widener tomorrow in their only home 
meet of the 1984 season. 


The Lady Aggies will open their season 
against Swarthmore and Widener tomor- 
row, then will face Ursinus next Friday in 
their only home meets of the season. 


Fifty-three teams started on "The 
Road to Seattle" but it all came down to 
one game on Monday night. The George- 
town Hoyas. the Big East Champions, 
against SEC Champion Houston Cougars. 

The Hoyas went to the West Regional 
where they had to defeat SMU, Nevada- 
L-as Vegas, and the upstart Dayton Flyers 
before a final four victory over Kentucky. 
The Cougars enroute to the final four de- 
feated Louisiana Tech, Memphis State, 
and Wake Forest. Then in the semifinals 
the Cougars downed the Cinderella story 
Virginia Caveliers. 

The game was built as Patrick Ewing 
against Akeem Olajuwon but it was not 
to be . Houston built an early eight point 
lead but iseven minutes into the game 
Georgetown tied the game and never 
again looked back. The Hoyas removed 
Patrick Ewing with 7:35 remaining in the 
half. Ewing with foul trouble left with the 
Hoyas leading by six, 28-22. But, the 
Georgetown depth payed off as they in- 
creased their lead to go up 40-30 at the 

In the second half the Cougars were 
surprisingly hot from the foul line and did 
cut the Hoya lead to five at two points in 
the half but with just under four minutes 
remaining the Hoyas pulled away. The 
Hoyas who literally threw away a title 
two years ago were not in any danger of 
losing down the stretch this time as they 
defeated the Cougars 84-75. 

For Houston and Guy Lewis it was the 
fifth trip to the finals without a title, while 
for Georgetown it was their first ever na- 
tional title and the first time since the 
LaSalle Explorers of 1954 that a Big East 
team had won the National crown. 


The Aggies back from a good Florida 
campaign opened the 1984 season last 
Monday against Ursinus. The Aggies 
despite some good performances dropjDed 
both ends of the doubleheader. 

In the first game the Aggies got a good 
performance from Ed Chroscinski on the 
mound but the only Aggie run in the 5- 1 
defeat came on Tom O'Neill's RBI single 
which scored Lome Bachert 

The Aggies gave up two runs in each 
the first, third, and fourth innings of the 
second game enroute to a 6-3 defeat. 
The Aggies did get two runs in the fifth 
inning on Andy Melillo's two RBI hit which 
scored Cosmo Losco and Joe Seigen- 
fuse. The other Aggie run came in the 
sixth as Tom O'Neill scored on a Losco 

The Aggies will host Scranton tomorrow 
in a twinbill. starting at 1:(X). 


The weather has not treated the soft- 
• ball team favorably so far this season, but 
the Lady Aggies should be in action a 
number of times this week. 

The ladies will travel to Allentown on 
r Monday before opening their home sea- 
son on Tuesday with a doubleheader 
against Kings. The Aggies will close the 
week with another doubleheader as they 
host FDU on Thursday.

worid's only venemous lizards, the gila 
monster and Mexican beaded lizard) . A 
South American yellow-footed tortoise 
and an Asian cobra are also featured in 
the show.

Founder's Day 

by Lisa C. Merklein 

Voices filtered through the All- Purpose Room doors and blended with the mur- 
murings of those guests still lingering in the Joshua Feldstein campus court. I paused 
to adjust my blazer and introduce my mother to a few friends, then we entered and 
were directed to our seats by smiling, well-dressed student ushers. 

There was a constant bustle of activity, and as I sat among the other awardees. idly 
leafing through my program — I couldn't help but wonder, would this Founder's Day 
be different from those of previous years? A new room in a sparkling building, newly 
appointed deans and a greatly improved DVC Band under the direction of Jay 
Durner — a much welcomed addition to our staff — would these enhance an other- 
wise tedious ceremony? The answer — yes! 

Oh. there were the usual staff processional (all of our profs trying to look stern and 
serious in their black gowns), the invocation by Rabbi Jeffrey Salkin, history by Dean 
Adelson. and the playing of the national anthem — but I was pleasantly surprised as 
the ceremony proceeded. 

Speakers kept things relatively short, the chorale and band performed well, and 
the presentation of awards ran quickly and smoothly. There were many awards pre- 
sented for outstanding service to the college: The Distinguished Faculty Member 
award went to George F. West, from the business administration department and the 
Student Government Service award to Dr Charles Weber, from the chemistry 
department. The Publications award went to Diane Elwood for her work as editor of 
Cornucopia and to Gerald Robbins for his work as editor of Ram Pages. DTA Out- 
standing awards for junior and senior achievement were presented to George Stahl 
and Steve Trostle respectively. The Founders Day award was given to Carl Vivcjldi. 
our student body president, for his four years of dedicated service in all aspects of col- 
lege life. Kdren Hammer was presented with an Outstanding Service award for her 
many contributions to the social life of DVC as Social House Chairperson. The 
Walter Riggins Memorial award, which goes to the outstanding male and female 
senior athlete, was awarded to Mark S'ands and Missy Young. 

There were many other awards presented for academic and athletic achievement, 
including Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities and 
the President's award — to the 1983-84 wrestling team for their impressive winning 
record . 

The Sydney J. Markovitz Equine Facility was also dedicated — a long awaited ad- 
dition to our campus and curriculum. The ceremony went well and my last Founder's 
Day will remain a memorable experience.

* In Japan there is a deadly martial art, 
called tessenjutsu based solely on the use 
of a fan. 

* Louis XIV owned 413 beds. (Think 
about that one.) 

•k The fear of beds is called clinophobia. 

ir One-fourth of the world's population 
lives on less than $200.00 a year. Ninety 
million people survive on less than $75.00 
a year. 

* The jaws of African fire ants are used 
as sutures for wounds in parts of South 
Africa. After an operation is performed, 
an ant is allowed to bite into the two flaps 
of skin along the line of the incision. The 
ant's body is then twisted off. leaving the 
head with its mandible locked into the 
skin like a stitch.

Dear Editors 

Thank you all so much for your ad- 
vertising support of the library used book 
sale. It was an unqualified success. We 
had a lobby full of students anxiously 
waiting for the 10:00 a.m. opening, and 
happily observed that our satisfied cus- 
tomers had spread the word around cam- 
pus urging their friends to stop by and 
look at our offerings. We have tried to 
keep sale prices low so that books are af- 
fordable to students; also, because we 
want the books sold to people who will 
read and enjoy them. Thanks again to 
you and all the students who attended 
the sale. 

J. Bitzer, 

Dear Editors 

This letter concerns a problem that has 
existed since I have been here at DVC 
and unless something is done, will prob- 
ably continue to exist. It has to do with 
taking pictures at college functions and 
award presentations. It seems that when- 
ever there is a function of this type there 
are many photographers there to take 
pictures but the presenter is always in 
such a position that when the recipient 
received an award, his/her back is to the 
audience making it impossible for the 
photographer to get a decent picture. 
This problem occurred at the recent 
founders Day Ceremony. There were 
photographers there from Ram Pages. 
Yearbook, school photographers, and 
photographers from the local newspaper 
along with many proud parents hoping 
to get a good picture of their son or 
daughter but were unable to get good 
pictures because of the fact that they all 
had their backs to the camera. The peo- 
ple responsible for holding these events 
should take into consideration that there 
are people out there trying to capture 
these events on film and make sure that 
these people (presenter and recipient) 
are facing forward or at least sideways. 
We school photographers are trying our 
best to capture these events and make 
them lasting memories but we need the 
cooperation of the people involved to 
make this possible. Hopefully this letter 
will make the problem known and some- 
thing can be done about it in the near 
future, like before graduation. After all. 
we're doing this for the students and the 


Trying to get a good picture

this problem, please feel free to respond.

When I visited DVC during my incom- 
ing Freshmen year. 1 arrived the week 
before A-Day. I just couldn't believe how 
beautiful the campus really looked. 1 was 
definitely amazed. As a result. DVC be- 
came my choice for undergraduate study. 
However, over the last two years, I have 
watched DVC tum into a dump. Presently 
1 think campus looks pitiful. One would 
have to be blind not to see papers and 
cans blowing across campus or piling up 
in some sunken spot. This is definitely 
the students' fault. I hate to see campus 
this way. I'm sure others agree. It would 
be such an outstanding place if it were to 
stay clean. Campus clean-ups are good, 
but not sufficient all year round. I'm sure 
the school could hire some old man to 
walk around and pick up after slobs, but 
all it takes from the students is a little re- 
spect and a touch of care. 

Mondale Beats Hart 

By Ed Wengryn 

During the Pennsylvania primary on 
Tuesday Ram Pages set out to find out 
how the students of Del Val would vote. 
The results were surprising to say the 

Across the state on the Democratic 
ticket Walter Mondale took 45% of the - 
vote. Senator Gary Hart 33%. and Jesse 
Jackson 20% . The win for Mondale was , 

if ■ 

expected in Pennsylvania and Hart con- 
ceded by 3:00 p.m. On the Republican 
ticket. President Reagan ran unopposed 
and recieved all of his party delegates. 

In Bucks,County. the story was a littk^ 
different, as Senator Gary Hart won 
most of the votes. One of the few cou i- 
ties in the state to be taken by Hart. At 
DVC Walter Mondale would not havef 
had a chance. Of the students that voted 
Democratic. 70% voted for Senator Hart 
only 20% for Mondale. and 10% for 
Rev. Jackson. 

But for Del Val that was not the only 
election of the day on an overall scale of 
who you would vote for for president. 
President Reagan was the big winner 
with 44% of the DVC vote to Hart's 36%. 
Mondale's 10%. and Jackson's 7% with 
2% voting other or undecided. The most 
difficult and surprising thing that this 
reporter had to put up with was the lack 
of knowledge of the candidates; people 
would not vote in the poll because they 
did not know who the candidates were. 
For those people I feel sorry. Walter 
Mondale was Vice-President to Jimmy 
Carter in 1976. Senator Gary Hart is the 
man who upset Mondale's campaign 
winning prime states in the New England 
area. The Reverend Jesse Jackson is 
noted for his achievement in bringing an 
American hostage home from Syria. 
What is even more pitiful is the fact that 
most pole takers were undecided as to 
whether President Reagan had performed 
a sufficient job. This country is ours. Let's 
not blow it. read a paper, watch the 
news, get involved in the world around 
you. DVC is nothing like the real world. 


Attention seafood lovers! How long 
has it been since you were able to "pig 
out" on all the seafood you could eat for 
less than $20.00? My guest^and I were 
able to enjoy this pleasure recently at 
The Boston Sea Party on Route 611 in 
Willow Grove. Pa. 

Stepping through the door of the Bos- 
ton Sea Party, you enter a pleasurable 
rustic New England setting. You are then 
seated and your waitress, dressed in ap- 


propriate garb, explains the menu options; 
The Sea Party sports the usual entree 
menu of a seafood restaurant including 
prime rih. New Yotk strip steak, steak 
and lobster tail, stuffed sole. etc.. with 
all entrees priced between $8.95 and 
$15.95. The highlight of our ''Celebra- 
tion of Seafood" was the Boston Sea 
Party Banquet which is all you can eat 
from the Chowder Bar which offered 
Boston clam chowder and soup du jour, 
the Salad Pier which contained every- 
thing imaginable to create your own 
salad masterpiece, the Cold Seafood 
Pier where you can hejp yourself to all 
the oysters on the half shell, damson the 
half shell, shrimp, caviar, marinated her- 
rin^^. and smoked salmon you want, and 
finally the Hot Seafood Pier which my 
guest and I found the best of all This pier 
consists of spiced shrimp, baked scrod. 
steamed snow crab legs, seafood creole. 
mussels in herb butter, scallops poulette. 
steamed clams, seafood quiche, barbe- 
cued ribs, corn on the cob. and rice pilaf. 
You can indulge in these piers and the 
Chowder Bar for only $16.95 per per- 
son . If you prefer you can purchase just 
the Banquet or you can purchase the 
Banquet and the entree in which case 
the price of the Banquet drops to $12.95 
plus the price of the entree. 

My guest and I highly recommend this 
dining experience but a word of caution: 
the Banquet is so delicious that by the 
time your entree arrives you are so full 
that you can't eat it all We dined on en- 
trees of prime rib and stuffed sole that 
were very delicious and the size of the 
portions are well worth the price. 

If you're looking for a night on the 
town by all means consider The Boston 
Sea Party. $16.95 for all you can eat 
seafood is within reach of almost every 
college student. Enjoy! 



On Sunday, April 15. there will be a 
Rhythm and Blues Rock Concert per- 
formed by NRBQ. What is NRBQ? Not a 
name, it's a license plate — for a band 
that's got that under the hood sound, 
from rock and roll's cradle days. But 
that's now. Who can tell in a couple of 
months or years what could be under 
the hood? Only NRBQ, the plate, is per- 
manent. Who is NRBQ? Five guys who 
cat a lot of peanut butter, drink a lot of 
RC colas, and play a lot of joyous music. 
They're known for their eclecticism — in 
one set they'll run a music gamut from 
the Coaster to Sunny Rollins. But they're 
best known for their brand of Rock and 
Roll. Such recordings as "Riding in My 
Car." "Shake, Rattle, and Roll," and 
"Get Rhythm " to name a few. Tickets 
are on sale in the Dean's Office: 

Students - $2.00 
V vjGeneral Admission — $5.0()

Chip Franklin 

by Jean Meyer 

Chip Franklin returned to the stage at 
Del Val last Tuesday night to perform 
another fantastic show. Chip is a com- 
bination of a singer and comedian and 
combines his talents to perform an ex- 
cellent show. 

Chip opened his show with an imita- 
tion of Michael Jackson and then began 
to talk to his small audience. A talented 
singer. Chip performed his own medley 
of songs for the audience. His other 
talents showed when he did impressions. 
The best impression of the night was 
Elvis in the grave. 

Overall, the show was a great success 
and I hope to see Chip Franklin next

Rocky Horror: 
A tribute to Brad and Janet 

by Bill Rein 

Midnight strikes as one of those hours 
when only the crazies dare venture out of 
house and dorm, and there seems to be 
'harp increases in their numbers when 
it's Friday night. Last Friday was without 
exception, except that some more res- 
pectable faces, like those of our own Ag- 
gies, dragged themselves to the All- 
Purpose Room of the Student Center to 
join in a local performance of The /?oclcy 
Horror Picture Show. 

Rock}; Horror has been a perennial 
favorite, a freak of nature, and the bane 
of movie reviewers, for its almost ten- 
year existence.- Some of us never had 
the chance to catch it until it came to 
DVC. but it seemed that a lot of the 
show's followers were armed with 
weapon and wor hat have become its 

Water bottles, wet newspaper, lighters, 
and an almost fully memorized script 
were on hand for any of us who were not 
sure what was going on — and I'm sure it 
will take about five more showings for 
any newcomer to find that out. The 
show's heroine, Janet, is the beloved. 
The show's "hero" (as the credits have 
him titled). Brad, is the butt of any joke 
the audience has well-rehearsed to throw 
at him. We're talking about a bunch of 
college students speaking irreverently (to 
say the least) at a movie screen! Some- 
how, following some backwards-type 
mid- Western, mid-seventies wedding of 
their friends, Janet and Brad find their 
way. after professing their own love, to 
an ominous-looking "castle" in their 
travels on a dark, stormy night. Little did 
they know but they had stumbled upon 
Dr. Frank N. Furter's Annual Transylva- 
nian Convention. You can get the idea 
of what might just happen in the ensuing 
hour and a half. 

Nonetheless, the fifties hon^or movie 
spoof (and rock musical, which was born 
in the heyday of Alice Cooper and what 
some call "Glitter Rock") continues in ut- 
ter confusion through a plot which, 1 
think, maybe the writers didn't even 
understand! Some of the weirdest char- 
acters ever invented popped up in Rock^; 
Horror, and left an impression — a 
lasting impression — on any of those 
who stayed awake and stared in shock! 


Christian Stevetis Concert 

On Thursday, Aprif 5, the Christian 
Fellowship sponsored a concert by the 
group Christian Stevens. The group was 
led by Mike, Bob, and his wife, Joan, in 
which they entertained the audience with 
contemporary Christian Rock music. 
Some of their songs included, "The 
World," "Only Jesus Can," and "Lobster 
Man." in spite of the foul weather, there 
was a large turnout. Unfortunately, a 
large part of the DVC student body missed 
out on a good time.

A-DAY '84 

by G. Todd 

The visual changes begin early in the 
week, although the plans were developed 
well in advance and much work was 
done in preparation. While not studying 
for exams or working on term papers, 
the students, with the help of others, 
transform the college campus into a fair- 
grounds. Holding-pens are constructed 
to display sheep, pigs, and calves; a big- 
top tent is erected as a show ring for 
livestock judging; food booths appear of- 
fering a range of tastes from pizza and 
cotton candy to milkshakes and ice 
cream. The gymnasium is changed into 
a flower show and classrooms become 
exhibfts and displays prepared by various 

The pace hastens as the week grows 
old and by the weekend the results are 
seen: a two-day open house held rain or 
shine at the area which serves as DVC 
campus for the remainder of the year. 

A- Day (standing for Agriculture Day) 
is now in its 36th year and has changed 
and grown tremendously since the first 
A-Day was held at the National Farm 
School in 1949. Since its creation. 
A-Day has remained a project under- 
taken by student volunteers. The con- 
cept of A-Day was entirely developed by 
the students and is still a student- 
sponsored event operated under one 
unified budget. Depending mostly on the 
weather, this two-day exposition, held 
on April 28th and 29th from 9 a.m. to 5 
p.m. both days, will attract between 30 
and 50 thousand visitors to the campus 
and offers something for everyone. 

Exhibits relating to the various course 
offerings of the college are prepared. 
Livestock are displayed and judged. A 
horse show and small animal laboratory 
exhibit provide more interest for the 
animal lovers. 

In addition to the flower show, the Or- 
namental Horiculture Department pre- 

sents a greenhouse display and offers for 
sale, plants, bulbs, and other items for 
the home garden. 

One of the most entertaining exhibits is 
the honey bee exhibit where care and 
products are demonstrated . An art show 
and photography show are also part of 
the offerings. 

Food stands are available to satisfy 
your hunger and a chicken barbecue is 
presented by the Food Industry mem- 
bers. Hay and pony rides are another 
option for the young. And for those feel- 
ing competitive, log sawing, pie eating, 
canoe jousting, and milking competition 
contests will be held . Band and Chorale 
concerts as well as a Drama Club pro- 
duction will further entertain visitors. 

It is hoped that the efforts of this year's 
students will make this A-Day a most en- 
joyable weekend. It is a fun time for the 
entire family and provides a special en- 
vironment for an outdoor weekend.

An Editorial by G. Todd 

I guess we've all got it to some degree 
— or at lease we're getting it. But it's a 
strange sensation because you don't 
know you've got it until after you've had 
it. What is it? The DVC exj^erience. 

I believe it all started with a letter of ac- 
ceptance from DVC's Admission's Of- 
fice. Sure, we'd all read about the college 
and the "DVC experience" in pamphlets 
and brochures from the college but what 
\-Avas it? It took four years to find out, and 
then once you knew what it was, it was 

Let me recap some highlights. 

Freshman orientation — now that was 
an experience within itself. There you 
were, scared to death, but not letting 
everyone else see that side of you, with 
these total strangers (who felt just like 
you did but didn't let onto the fact) on a 
bus going from site to site as an upper- 
classman tour guide rambled on as to 
%yhat farm you were visiting and what the 
land was used for and what classes you'd 
have there, etc. You struggled through 
the remainder of the orientation proce- 
dure and it was just that, a procedure — 
the first of many. My personal impres- 
sion, one that has remained with me 
through the past four years here, was 
that unless you entered a room with a 
pen or pencil you might as well not be 
there. As freshmen, it was an experi- 
ence: as upperclassmen, it was some- 
thing to look back on each fall and 
remember, turn the other way and grin 

— (a necessary torture?) 

Next comes Parent's Day. This is an 
annual event that is held so that every- 
one cleans their rooms and makes their 
habitations presentable. 

October is a busy month for it also 
brings Homecoming. Here we find who 
the dedicated workers are. They are the 
students who work on the floats until 
completion and then catch an hour's 
sleep and they're off to the parade. The 
day is filled by the parade and sports 
games and as we grow from freshmen to 
seniors we find ourselves knowing more 
and more alumni and look forward to 
this weekend. We then realize how 
quickly we become one of the alumni. 

Thanksgiving break always seems to 
arrive just when you thought the dining 
hall food was beginning to improV^L;You 
feast at home, return, and realizelhat 
such an observation is a fallacy. 

Finals appear — the harbinger of the 
semester's end. Even with the Thanks- 
giving break, finals and the accompany- 
ing tension and short-tempcredness pre- 
pare all for a very long vacation from 
DVC. You go home and are placed into 
the whirlwind of last minute shoppers — 
Christmas comes and you can take a 
deep breath at last and relax. 

Then January arrives, boredom sets in 
and you even look forward to registra- 
tion. The semester begins and you are 
back in the swing of things in a short 

February is a great time for the unex- 
pected, Valentine's Day arrives and who 
knows what might happen if you're hit by 
Cupid's arrow. Many glittering white 
rocks always appear. Glittery and white 
snow. That seems to have a way of ap- 
pearing very often at this time too. How 
many times did you take bets that school 
would be cancelled, slept in for a 
change, and then discover that everyone 
else pulled on their boots and slipped to 

March is always a hectic month, being 
filled with more activities, mid-terms, 
spring break, and the first dinner dances 
of the year. Field trips are often found 
occurring also. The month breezes by 
and before you know it you are thrown 
into April Fool's Day. 

Then the banquets start and are a 
welcomed relief from the dining hall 
food . Those who really get involved find 
that they never have to eat at Levin's 
Hall anymore for there are banquets for 
EVERYTHING, clubs. R.A.'s. commit- 
tees, etc. 

And soon the warm weather sets in 
and you find DVC taking it off and sur»? 
ning. The banks of Archer as well as the 
lawn area outside the dorms are soon 
adorned with sunbathers and the air is 
filled with the scent of suntan oil and the 
sound of music from portable radios or 
speakers in dorm room windows. 

The month is a busy one being blessed 
with Founders' Day on one weekend. 

Superstars on another, usually Easter on 
another, and summed up by A-D,ay on 
yet another — (are we out of weekends 

Then May arrives and you only have 
time to turn around to face finals and 
then graduation . You look back on your 
first year, your first two years, then three 
years, and then on your college days as a 
whole and wonder where the time went. 

Remember when you "discovered" 
Lake Archer, then Lake Galena? How 
many times did you complain about your 
roommate but then have no one to do 
something with when you were there for 
a weekend alone? And the parties — the 
impromptu ones and the ones that were 
weeks in the planning. And what to do 
on a Sunday afternoon — Montgomery- 
ville Mall, New Hope. Peddler's Village,^ 
the Mart, the Barn, the bowling alley — 
we all managed to fill the time and enjoy 
ourselves. And NBl, a great place to 
celebrate a 21st or celebrate after 
seminar. And after your 21st birthday, 
how many of the area bars did you 

Of course, there were the endless 
hours that we spent in the library, study- 
ing and working on research papers and 
seminar. Will we remember? Barbra 
Streisand has the answer when she sings 
". . . it's the laughter we will remember, 
whenever we remember the way we 
were." DVC will be missed by its alumni.

Dear Editors, 

As seniors, we feel it is necessary to 
address the topic of A-Day and the now 
ever increasing problems which are asso- 
ciated with it. The College catalog says 
that A-Day is an annual student-planned 
and organized science and agriculture 
exposition, requiring many months of 
preparation on behalf of the students. 
However, over the past four years, we 
have noticed that the student participa- 
tion which always was lacking has deteri- 
orated to an even greater extent. 

We believe that the problem is the 
result of many factors, the first being a 
general feeling of apathy on behalf of 
many students toward A-Day in general. 
A second reason appears to be a greater 
priority to party, which is very obvious by 
the large attendance at parties, but the 
lack of participation before, during, and 
after A-Day. A final reason seems to be a 
general lack of support for clubs which in 
turn results in a poorer organized, staffed, 
and successful event. 

It should be understood that the pur- 
pose of this letter is not to attack partying 
or other activities not directly related to 
the big weekend. What we do want to 
point out is the misdirection of priorities 
and carefree attitudes of many students 
toward our College's main community 
attraction. Our feelings about this lack of 
concern among many of our fellow stu- 
dents are of despair, frustration, and to 
some extent, anger, particulary because 
we know for a fact that for the last couple 
of years A-Day has been running on a 
significant shortage of student help. 
What compounds our frustration farther 
is our observation of students' plans and 
actions for this weekend. Students' plans 

Dear Editor, 

We would like to use this space for a 
good reason, that being to recognize two 
people of the campus family who prob- 
ably are not known by many, mainly 
because they do not carry heavy titles 
nor are usually seen in the lime light. 

Editors, we feel the desire to express 
our sincere appreciation to Larry and Pat 
Lyford who. as the Berkowitz girls know, 
are Community Coordinators, and as 
Christian Fellowship members know, are 
club advisors. 

We, as seniors in the fellowship, have 
known Larry and Pat for varying time 
spans, and have come to know the love, 
dedication, sharing, and caring that they 
have expressed to anyone in need. Be- 
cause we are on our last time around, we 
just wish to thank them through this letter 
for the patience and never ending help 
and encouragement that they have given 
to us. as well as many other students 
throughout the entire campus. In addi- 
tion, we praise the Lord for people like 
them, and ask that He continually use 
them in a similar, love-filled, and caring 
manner that has been demonstrated. 

God Bless,

An Officer 
and a Gentleman 

by Jamie Beck 

Set in Seattle, Washington, this story 
revolves around Zack Mayo (Richard 
Gere), a nobody who wants to make 
something of himself. He goes to an 
Officers' Candidate School so he can fly 
jets (as he puts it) . His close friend is por- 
trayed by David Keith. Together, they go 
through a rigid training program with the 
tough drill instructor, played expertly by 
Louis Gossett, Jr. Along the way, he 
meets and falls in love with Paula (Debra 
Winger) , who is one of the local girls. 

An Officer and a Gentleman is a 
realistic movie that I'm sure everyone 
would enjoy, it is full of many varied 
emotions and proves that you can win 
over any obstacles when you truly 
believe in yourself. 

for the weekend range from "Nothing," 
to "Going Home," to "Sleeping off the 
previous night." Actions of some of 
those who do hang around are not much 
better, as can be seen by the record 
number of sun bathers at the dorm 
"beaches," while at the same time 
several hundred people stand in line for 
food due to help shortages at the food 
tents, and thousands of dollars are lost 
because no one is willing to help with 

We are in the dark, (as we suspect are 
the A-Day committee members who 
plan this weekend, many administration 
members who have watched A-Day par- 
ticipation go down hill over the years, 
and probably even many visitors) as to 
why very few people want to get involved 
with an event like this. Sure, at times it 
gets hot, dirty, frustrating, and irritating, ' 
but we find that planning A-Day, setting 
up club exhibits, and working during the 
weekend is a blast and a memorable 

Up until this year, A-Day has been 
totally student run. Questions persist as 
to whether this weekend will be the last 
of its kind. It is up to us, the STUDENTS, 
to make A-Day work. What are you do- 
ing to help?

In answer to your recent editorial 
regarding the difficulty of taking pictures 
at college functions, 1 can offer the

N.R.B. Who? 

by Leslie E. Blatt 

N.R.B.Q. stands for the New Rhythm 
and Blues Quartet plus their sidekicks the 
Whole Wheat Horns. This unique ' 
group, who hails from Saugertus, New 
York, plays in clubs along the east coast 
in places such as the Chestnut Cabaret in 
Philadelphia. N.R.B.Q. made their DVC V 
appearance on Sunday, April 15 despite 
much apathy from DVC students. Their 
performance, which took place in the 
James Work gymnasium, was basically a 
dance concert. The attendance by DVC 
students was pathetic as only 102 tickets 
were sold. The majority of the people . 
who were there appeared to have a great 
time despite the small number in atten- 
dance. Thanks go to Social House who 
sponsored this event. 


by Bill Rein 

It had been forecasted to be the abrupt 
end of a beautiful week of true spring- 
time weather, but Friday the 13th eluded 
its traditionally unlucky reputation when 
Aaron and Joel Marcus came to the Dr. 
Feldstein Campus Court. ^ 

Cloudy skies parted for most of the 
lunchtime hour-and-a-half as the Marcus 
Brothers relaxed and entertained the 
small crowd reclining on the grass sur- 
rounding the Student Center courtyard. 
If the weather seemed lifeless, no prob- 
lem, with electric guitars in hand, Aaron 
and Joel could be heard singing, in their 
trademark pure tones of easy listening 
music, around this end of DVC in one of 
our first outdoor coffeehouses here. It 
was somewhat like FM radio in concert. 
Their songs included soft rock, some 
jazz. folk, and pop music in their own 
style. A version of "Light My Fire" may 
have rivaled Jose Feliciano's own clear 
version that made this tune so popular. 

Overall, the Marcus Brothers were a 
nice, noiseless breakaway from the usual 
lunchtime fare. 

Business Faculty Member 
Establishes Scholarship 

Recently, Delaware Valley College 
awarded the Dorothy J. McCool Memo- 
rial Scholarship. It is the first business- 
faculty sponsored scholarship for Busi- 
ness Administration students. The schol- 
arship is in the amount of five hundred 
dollars and is awarded to the junior 
Business Administration student with the 
highest academic grade point average at 
the end of the junior year fall semester. 

The scholarship was established by 
Mr. Edward J. McCool, a distinguished 
member of the Business Administration 
faculty. The scholarship is in memory ol 
and named for Mr. McCool's late, bebved 
wife. The scholarship represents the Mc- 
Cools' idealism and commitment to intel- 
lectual and moral excellence. This ideal- 
ism advances the virtues of loyalty and 
dedication to purpose and mission. 

The scholarship recipient for the 
1984-85 school year was Mr. Daniel 
Glowatski, Business Administration, 
Class of 1985. Mr. Glowatski is the per- 
sonification of this scholarship and its 

The College and the Business Admini- 
stration Department appreciate and 
thank Mr. McCool for his concern, 
thoughtfulness, and support which will 
benefit present and future Delaware 
Valley College students.

ciation of Avian Veterinarians. 

"I was pleased to be part of such a 
prestigious group." said Dr. Kahan. who 
is a frequent guest speaker at such 
gatherings. "Anytime I have an oppor- 
tunity to discuss some of the things we're 
doing here at Delaware Valley College I 
try to take advantage of it." 

The yearly seminar was the fifth of 
its kind. The stated purpose of the semi- 
nar is to discuss current knowledge con- 
cerning science and health for avian

I would like to commend DVC! The 
college's chapel provided the perfect set- 
ting for the exchange of wedding vows as 
Sherrie Price and Francis Bianco were 
married on April 21. The college grounds 
were neat and complemented the beauti- 
ful ceremony. Most importantly, I feel 
that DVC should be thanked for sharing 
the campus with its students' social life 
and not just their educational time at the 
college. Since both Sherrie and Fran are 
DVC graduates, the college campus 
added the perfect touch for their

excited about this team, has found little 
reason to do anything but get more ex- 
cited as the season progresses. 

On April 11th, the Aggies devastated 
Moravian 113-25, taking 16 of the 17 
events. These first place finishes includ-

(800), Jeppe Christiansen (1500), Ed 
Kuri (5000), Dan Glowatski (100-high

and triple jump), Chris Buckley and 
Dave Keich (high jump, 6 '-7", school 
record), Jim Bauzon. (javelin), John 
Stella (shotput), and Steve Trostle

Keich, Newell, Barrett, and Benner as 
well as the 1600-meter team of Barrett, 
Glynos, Zerr, and Benner, also got first 

The Aggies then traveled to Emmits- 
burg, Maryland, for the Mason -Dixon 
Relays. A second place finish was 
gained by Chip Zerr in the 400-inter- 
medlate hurdles, with teammate Tyler 
Smith finishing sixth. Jeppe Christian- 
sen finished third in the 10,000-metcr 
while Steve Trostle was fourth in the 
discus. Seventh place finishes went to

; The Aggies played three doubleheaders 
In the past two weeks and posted a 4-2 
mark bringing their overall record to 6-3. 

On April 11th. the Aggies swept a 
twinbill from the Upsala Vikings. In the 
first game the Aggies used three runs in 
the fifth and added two in the sixth to 
come from behind for a 6-3 victory. Ed 
Chroscinski went the distance on the 
mound. The Aggies fell two runs behind 
in the second game but used a nine-run 
fifth inning to pull off a 10-3 win. Aggie 
'hurler Bob McEvoy threw a two-hitter 
and went the distance. 

In game one against Wilkes the Aggies 
again used a strong fifth inning, scoring 
seven times tO' take an 8-5 victory. Joe 
Cox with two hits, including a homerun. 


by Mel Balliet 

"A good indication is that our scores 
have come down," said first year coach 
Al Wilson, who. despite his team's 2-5 
record, is very pleased with their progress. 

After a weather riddled early season, 
the Aggies did have a busy two weeks, 
playing three times against five opixs-" 
nents. The Aggies dropped a tri-meet 
against Ursinus (402) and FDU (418).

more 460-491. The Aggies then lost a 
very close meet to Muhlenberg and 
Albright. The Aggies finished with a 
score of 433, while the Mules scored a 
425. and the Lions shot a 430. 

John Donatelli and Greg Hoffstetter 
have lead the Aggies consistently this 
season, but Dan Lynch and Tim Sitarik 
have greatly improved. 

"We felt a realistic goal for this season 
was to finish in the top half of the team's 
in the MAC," said Wilson, but as the 
team heads to MAC's this weekend, 
without two of its top five players (who 
are unable to make the trip due to A-Day 
commitments), the team will still be look- 
ing to give it their best shot. The golf 
team contains only three seniors, they 
are: Tcxid Hesse. Dave Murphy, and 
Scott Timmins. 

had four RBl's to lead the Aggies. Emil 
Novak got the start on the mound and 
went five strong innings before being 
relieved by Dan Porter. The Aggies built 
an early lead in game two. but an eight- 
run fifth by the Colonels lifted them to a 
14-8 decision. The Aggies did get two 
RBI's from both Tom O'Neill and Dan 
Porter in the loss. 

: -Then, on April 17th. the Aggies split* 
twinbill with Kings. In game one, the on- 
ly offense the Aggies could generate was 
a solo homerun by Joe Seigenfuse. The 
Monarch's three-hit the Aggies and took 
a 5-1 decision. A five-run third was all 
the Aggies needed in game two as they 
went on to a 9-3 victory. Bob McEvoy 
again went all the way for the Aggies. 
Dave Nargoski with three RBI's and Joe 
Seigenfuse with two lead the way. 

The Aggies are in action today as they

The Aggies completed their second 
straight dual-meet season without a loss, 
but for the second straight season were 
unable to win the h4AC championships 
and 125V2 points, edged the Aggies by a 
mere Va of a point for the title. The Ag- 
gies did have two MAC champions and a 

Dan Canale, who finished the dual- 
meet season with a perfect 12-0 record, 
won the MAC title at 126 while Tony 
Tarsi, with a 9-1 tnark during the season, 
was an MAC champ at 134. The runner- 
up for the Aggies was Bruce Stajnrajh at 
158. Also representing the Aggies at Na- 
tionals were Troy Marshall (11-1) at 142 
and Mark Sands (12-0) at 150. 

At Nationals Tarsi, Stajnrajh, Sands, 
and Marshall all suffered first round 
k>sses but Canale was able to finish 
eighth in the nation earning him All- 
American status. 

The MVP for the Aggies this season 
was Mark Sands. 

The Aggies will be hit very hard by 
graduation losing Tony Borrello, Troy 
Marshall, Mark Sands, Bruce Stajnrajh. 
and Tony Tarsi. Coach Bob Marshall 
feels the Aggies could improve on their 
string of 38 straight dual-meet victories, 
but said that recruiting will be very

It was definitely a rebuilding year for 
the Lady Aggies who were plagued with 
a lack of experience, size, and numbers 
this season. 

The Lady Hoopsters were winless In 
their 19 outings but did gain valuable 

Kim Frey lead the team in scoring with 
269 points and rebounding with 171. 
The team's only senior and MVP, Missy 
Young, scored 155 points and pulled 
down 136 rebounds for second high on 
the team in both categories. Michele 
Heffner, In nine games, scored 120 

With only Young lost to graduation, 
the Aggies should return more experi- 
enced and with the addition of some 
height and depths could turn the pro- 
gram around next year. 


The Aggies had high hoF>es of a fourth 
straight MAC crown as the season got 
underway but losses to Susquehanna, 
Moravian, and Widener, as well as a 
heartbreaking defeat by Lycoming, 
dethroned the Aggies, Their 6-4 record 
marked the fifth straight winning season 
at DVC. 

The Aggies ground game was led by 
team MVP, Cosmo Losco, who scored 
12 touchdowns and 72 points to set 
single-season and career records in both 
areas. Tom O'Neill guided the A^le of- 
fense and completed 87 passes for 1 ,365 
yards and 1 1 touchdowns. O'Neill broke 
single-season and career passing yard- 
age records as well as the single-season 
record for completions. Tom was also 
recognized by the Maxwell Club for his 
play against Lycoming. ♦ 

Defensively the Aggies were led by 
Rob Charette with 55 first hits and 69 
assists, Dave Murphy, who registered 54 
first hits and 54 assists, and Jim Hannon, 
with 51 first hits and 63 assists.

The Aggies opened their season by 
winning the First Annual Big Brothers 
Tip-Off Tournament. After opening the 
season with a 6-3 record, the Aggies 
dropped 13 of their last 14 games and 
finished the season with a 7-17 overall 

The Aggies were led again this season 
by guard Jay Nichols who finished his 
career with 1743 points, just 41 points 
shy of the all-time career mark. Nichols 
finished this season with 557 points to 
pace the Aggies. Darin Poindexter lead 
the team in rebounds with 238 and was 
third in scoring with 247 points. Mike 
McCants was the second highest scorer 
for the Aggies with 258 points. 

Jay Nichols was voted the team's 
MVP for the second straight year. 

The Cagers will lose Walt Weir, Mike 
Kacergis, and Jay Nichols to graduation, 
but with a good recruiting year to support 
the returning talent, look for improve- 
ment next season.

The Aggies will lose 14 seniors, they 
are: Jim Bertuola, Clay Funk, Joe Gra- 
jew$ki, Mike Harbold, John James, 
Rodger Kennedy, Pat Lake, Cosmo 
Losco, Dave Murphy, Tom O'Neill, Dan 
Rupp, Joe Seigenfuse, Jeff Sneeringer, 
and George Wajda. 

"At times this season was frustrating," 
said Coach Al Wilson. "I don't believe in 
a big carry over from one season to the 
next. But. I think the guys who are back 
next year will understand better what it 
takes to be a winner every time they go 
out on the field." 


Men's cross country wound up an im- 
pressive 9-3 season with an eighth place 
finish at the MAC Championships. 

Ed Kuri, despite a 15th place finish at 
MAC's, pounced back to finish seventh 
at Reglonals and earn a trip to Nationals. 
At Nationals, Kuri finished a very res- 
pectable 91st place. 

Other Aggie finishers at MAC's included 
Jeppe Christiansen (8th), Ken McDaid 
(31st), Dave Spotts (77th), and Don 
Billett (106th). At Regionals, the Hamers 
finished 11th as a team, while Kuri was 
again followed by Christiansen (37th), 
McDaid (55th), Spotts (110th), and 
Billett (129th). 

The only senior on this season's team 
was Ed Kuri who was also named the 
team's MVP. 

"We had a good season," said Coach 
Robert Berthold, who added, "1 am op- 
timistic about next year. We have a 
number of quality runners returning."

with a 6-9 record and will be hit very 
hard by graduation. 

The Aggies will lose Tony Borrelo, 
John Dull, Scott Kline, Suren Pakhtigian, 
Tony Tarsi, and Ken Zanzalari, all of 
whom started for the Aggies this past 
season. "We \oie five excellent soccer 
players," said Coach Bob Marshall. 

The outstanding offensive player this 
season was Cary Gilbert who lead the 
team with 10 goals while the outstanding 
defensive player and MVP awards went 
to Tony Borrelo. 

"We had some good young players 
really develop," said Coach Marshall, 
"but we have a lot of inexperience com- 
ing back." 


The Lady Stickers finished the 1983 
season with a 4-7-1 record but with a few 
breaks could have had a very good 

Carol Serik led the Aggies in scoring 
with five goals. She was followed by 
MVP Nancy Brake with four and Kelly 
Kerner with three. Kemer led the team 
with 25 shots on goal while Serik had 24 
and Brake finished with 20. Janice 
McNeil, minding the nets for nine games, 
had 22 saves. 

"Our defense played exceptionally 
well all season," said Coach Peggy 
Vellner. "Our problem was in scoring

Under the direction of first year coach, 
Jeanne Cranney, the Lady Harriers 
compiled a 6-3 record during the dual- 
meet season. 

The Aggies ran very well all year and 
showed a very balanced attack as no one 
runner dominated the season. Lost to 
graduation will be Sue Kulp and MVP 
Brenda Givler. but returning will be a 
host of runners including Kate Marini. 
Kim Hack, Wendy Fields, Chris Frazer, 
Tana Hawes. Donna Hoover, Kim Brad- 
shaw, and Ester Guenther. With this 
wealth of returnees, this team could be 
very impressive next season.

If you look back at October with plea- 
sant memories, you are not alone. Oc- 
tober for everyone was a very busy 
month that gathered many memories. 
October began with a lecture on Edible 
Landscape by Rosalind Creasy, who was 
sponsored by The Floral Society and OH 
department. Before we knew it. we were 
cleaning our rooms for Parent's Day. 
Our parents were treated to a nice recep- 
tion in the All-Purpose Room while they 
had a chance to talk to our favorite 

teachers. Then they were treated to a 
"real" football game, the Aggies against 
Upsala, and of course we won! The real 
and final memories of the month came at 
Homecoming. For those who can't re- 
member, the theme was "Homecoming 
'83, The Place to Be." The day began 
early with the parade and ended with a 
dance. The big event of the day was the 
dedication of the new Student Center 
with the court being named after Dr. 
Feldstein. The queen for Homecoming 
'83 was Gale Backhus. first runner up — 
Chris Pulsette. and second runner up — 
June Guzikowski. .

Even for a relatively brief month, 
December can be noted as three weeks 
of almost daily social activity, ranging 
from the DVC Players presentation of 
The Runner Stumbles to a Christmas 
Dance, Dinner, and Coffeehouse! 

The focus was on DVC as Drs. Neil 
Vincent and John Plummer made their 
TV debut on Channel 17. in an inter- 
view for a community affairs program, 
our educational courses offered and the 
role of agriculture in the Delaware Valley 
were discussed in four days of 15-minutc 

The holiday season was, of course, a 
recurring theme. And December was a 
month of firsts — The First Annual 
Christmas Concert in the new Student 

Center was the first FREE concert of its 
kind and the first with FREE refreshments 
afterward! (How's that for holiday spirit?) 
There was a "Christmas Coffeehouse" 
with John Flynn who also helped fire up 
the spirit and warmth of the season with 
songs under the Christmas tree in the 
Cafeteria. Mr. Bill even came to the Stu- 
dent Center for a day and was soon fol- 
lowed by Bambi for all of our animal 
lovers and sentimental students. 

In sports, men's basketball opened 
their season defeating Wilkes and FDU- 
Madison. DVC's women's basketball 
banded together a somewhat small team 
with some big spirit in the opening of 
their season. Our wrestlers were espe- 
cially proven with their initial 4-0 record 
which they earned into that much- 
looked-forweird-to semester break.

Dr. Feldstein welcomed all students 
back to DVC during the last week of 
August. There were many changes 
made in both administration and staff as 
well as in the physical appearance of the 
campus. Dr. John C. Mertz was appoint- 
ed Acting Dean of Academic Affairs 
while Lionel Adelson was appointed Act- 
ing Dean of Student Services. Many 
more additions and changes to the DVC 
"family" were also announced. 

The greenhouse complex got a face- 
lift with the addition of a new OH wing 
which contains offices and classrooms. A 
new horse barn near Farm *3 was com- 
pleted over the summer as were new 
garden areas around campus. The big 
addition to the DVC campus was the ad- 

dition of the Student Center. Complete 
with a snack bar, student store, game 
room, offices, lounges, club roorns, and 
the All -Purpose Room, this building was> 
definitely an improvement made for the- 
use and enjoyment of students. This 
school year also brought with it the addi- 
tion of a new major — Agribusiness. 
Headed by department chairman George 
F. West, this major combines a balanced 
agriculture and business program. 

There were many special activities go- 
ing on around campus during the month 
of September. Maureen Walsh and Ed 
Sweeney each were here for coffee- 
houses. Gil Eagles was once again at 
DVC to (?ntertain everyone with the ex- 
pertise on hypnotism and ESP. The 
Floral Society presented Rosalind 
Creasy, author of The Complete Book 
of Edible Landscaping, to DVC and its 
surrounding communities.

Highlights of the events for November 
in and around DVC included: election 
day on the eighth, which ended the con- 
struction of the Point Pleasant Pumping 
Station. A Flashback Dance where we 
heard music both past and present. A 
Faculty Leg Contest where we found the . 

faculty member with the best looking 
legs. The girls chose their guys at the 
Sadie Hawkins Dance. Meadowlark 
Lemon and the Bucketeers paid us a 
visit. And on November 23. we all went 
home for a taste of Mom's home cooking 
for Turkey Day, otherwise known as 
Thanksgiving, the holiday where we give 
thanks for the food, friends, and other 
things we have, ., . ;,^

January is the month known for cold 
temiDeratures, snow storms, and bundl- 
ing up. As for Ram Pages, the staff 
issued one paper. Highlights included: a 
review of the DVC Players in the 
melodrama The Runner Stumbles, and a 
review of Yentl, Barbra Streisand's long- 

awaited movie. Employment was a large 
area reported in the paper. According to 
William Craver, Director of Placement, 
"over 70 percent of our graduates are 
working within their major field of 
study." As always, the paper included a 
calendar of the upcoming months' 
events. Finally, do you remember the 
photograph of Ed Wengryn curled up 
next to a fireplace, still waiting for Santa?

March came in like a lion, only this 
time with roars of laughter, as the DVC 
Players presented their cabaret nights of 
comedy. All three nights were played to 
record-breaking crowds. 

The first Saturday of the month meant 
a night out on the town for the DVC 
Junior Dinner Dance. This is also the 
time Dr. Martin had his first "heart 
attack" because the graphics material for 
the Philadelphia Flower Show were not 
ready, thus the committee started run- 
ning printing, writing, and labeling shifts 
till midnight. 

But they weren't the only ones work- 
ing late into the night, the week before 
the largest indoor show in the world 
keeps a lot of people awake. Thursday, 
the 8th. brought a great snowfall and 
heart attack *2; how was he to finish 
with no classes on Friday. By midnight 
Friday all was done, with Saturday's 

judging awarding DVC with the Buckley 
Medal for an exhibit of great merit and 
educational value. The great American 
mail-order ????? was a success not to 
mention the dance, that night. 

Wednesday, the 14th. brought Flash- 
dance to DVC with a nice turn out. 
(What do you expect on the Wednesday 
before spring break!) The 17th-25th saw 
many DVC students off and on break — 
Florida here we come! (Others went to 
Texas and California while some poor 
souls were left here at good old DVC.) 

The last week in March was a busy 
one; there was a Keith Street Jazz Con- 
cert on Tuesday, the movie Dark Cr\^stal 
on Thursday, and close to 100 Alpha 
Phi Omega Brothers to campus for a sec- 
tional conference on the weekend not to 
mention the highlight of the month (and 
year), the Senior Dinner Dance. All of 
this was to set the pace for the month of 
April. , , : _,

The month of February, as short as it 
is, was still filled with plenty of activities. 
The month was brought in with the Give- 
and-Take Jugglers who entertained a 
good -sized crowd. 

Later on in the month, the Student 
Government brought in Tim Settini, a 
comedy mime who kept the entire au- 
dience laughing for hours. February also 
saw DVC's Annual Variety Show. Col- 

lege students did a great job making fools 
of themselves but some people performed 
especially well including the guys from 
Tabor and Carolyn Brodhag who won 
first place. The college also held its 
Second Annual Career Day. 

The biggest event of February was the 
show performed by David Brenner. The 
gymnasium was filled with people who 
came from everywhere to see this fan- 
tastic comedian. 

The end of February brought on leap 
year day.

April was full of activities for the stu- 
dent. If you were bored during this 
month it was entirely your fault. April 
began with room registration and pre- 
registration for all freshman, sophomores, 
and juniors. There was the Second An- 
nual Bloodmobile which for the first time 
in a long time didn't reach its goal There 
were three coffeehouses and four movies 
including Rocky Horror and An Officer 
and a Gentleman. This month also saw 
the Annual Founders' Day Convocation 
and the dedication of the new horse 

facility. And if that wasn't enough to 
keep you busy, there was Superstars 
weekend — despite the cold, wet 
weather, everyone had a good time, 
And the usual spring Campus Skate was 
held during April. 

The highlight of this month was the 
Annual Spring Concert which this year 
featured NRBQ put on by Student 
Government. Some of the unusual 
events held this month were Mike 
Schwedick's Reptile World and the Egg 
Toss. Finally this month ended with the 
36th Annual student-run A-Day. April 
was a very busy month; hope you all en- 
joyed the wide variety of activities this 

Carl Vivaldi is presented with the Founders' Day Award for his dedicated service 
to the college. I^oto/Mel BalHet

The Editors' Desk: 

As the 1983-84 school year draws 
to an end, so does the year for Ram 
Pages. I hope that we, the editors, 
have accomplished our goal of bring- 
ing current news of the area and the 
DVC community to the DVC family. I 
would also like to announce next year's 
editors. Co-editors will be Leslie Blatt 
and Paul Caruso. Photography editor 
will be Linda Goodloe and Gene Bless- 
ing will hold the position of sports 
editor. Many active seniors are leaving 
but we are leaving our footsteps, 
follow in them, then better yourselves 
and excel.

Dear Editors 

The Horticulture Society would like to 
take this moment to thank the Agronomy 
Club, Block and Bridle, Future Farmers 
of America, and the Floral Society for 
producing a new and original display for 
A-Day. (As the A-Day committee and 
administration had requested.) We would 
hope in future years that the other clubs 
would follow this lead by creating a new 
and original display. In addition, we 
have spoken with several members of 
the A-Day committee and let our griev- 
ance be known. We thank the A-Day 
committee for taking measures to correct 
this problem. The A-Day committee in- 
structed the A-Day photographer to take 
pictures of all club displays. Next year 
(A-Day 1985} the judges will be shown 
this year's photographs of the clubs' ex- 
hibits. If the exhibits are the same the 
clubs will be disqualified from competi- 
tion. We feel these measures as well as 
others are needed to combat this prob- 
lem. We feel through these changes that 
the spirit of A-Day and competition will 
be restored.

Spring break has come and gone . . . 
Founder's Day has come and gone . . ., 
A-Day has come and gone . . . 
The potholes have come, but when do 
they go? This summer when the majority 
of students are gone or right before 
graduation? Yes! The small potholes 
beside Samuel Hall were fixed, but not 
the two huge holes in the student parking 
lot. This problem has been in the Student 
Government minutes several times, but 
to no avail. How long will it take for them 
to be fixed? HELP!!

Attention Students! 

In reference to the memo sent by Mr. 
Zenko, Residence Life Office, regarding 
removal of unwanted furnishing in rooms, 
there is an alternative solution. 

The college has planned to have large 
dumpsters placed in appropriate areas 
around campus for the removal of all un- 
wanted furniture and trash . In the event 
that the dumpsters do not arrive in time, 
unwanted furnishings are to be placed in 
the area where regular trash is picked up 
from each dorm. Students are advised to 
keep all furniture in one piece as much as 

If a student needs more trash bags to 
discard unwanted material, they may get 
them from their R.A. It is the student's 
responsibility to place extra trash bags 
outside their dorms where regular trash is 
picked up. 

Students are advised to adhere to these 
regulations or appropriate fines will be 
levied. It will be appreciated if students 
follow these regulations to help in the 
clean-up from A-Day and preparation 
for graduation. 

Dear Editors 

As an active student of Del Val for three 
years I have observed many frustrating 
problems with the advancement of the 
college. With the rapid progression of to- 
day's society, a small institution like Del 
Val must change even faster. Along with 
any advancements must stem proper ob- 
jectives and goals which are flexible 
enough to change with the times but must 
also be specific. 

Presently enrolled as a Dairy major I 
have chosen Business Organization and 
Management as an elective, a course 1 
highly recommend for everyone. As I 
proceed through this course I am realizing 
the importance of organization to run an 
effective business or college. As I apply 
my knowledge of Management by Objec- 
tive (MBO) I wonder where the objectives 
and goals of this college are headed. 
With the sometimes extreme decisions 
made by administration I wonder if they 
realize their targets. 

The definition of MBO provides for the 
performance of managers to be judged 
on the basis of their success in achieving 
objectives established with superiors. 
These performances may easily be trans- 
formed into the success of professors with 
the incorporation of new ideas^„ ■ 

For MBO to develop, efforts must be 
focused upon the goals to be achieved, 
rather than the activities performed to 
achieve those goals. When all your efforts 
are focused on how things appear, your 
goals to achieve become destroyed. Too 
often this college frowns upon a goal 
because it fears the activity to achieve the 
goal. If this college wants to progress, it 
must loosen its straps on college personnel 
and students and let them seek out their 

Along with the MBO system the Theory 

Y system also seems to go hand-in-hand 
with an institution like Del Val. Theory Y 
system is a people-centered approach. 
And I couldn't think of a more appropriate 
place for people than a college. Theory 

Y is a system of defined responsibilities 
with a degree of imagination and creati- 
vity. It also rewards accomplishments by 
objectives. Theory Y promotes group 
creativity and communication. Theory Y 
and MBO seem to be the most intelligent, 
efficient systems to operate a business or 

Now that 1 have expressed my obser- 
vations, I strongly urge the college ad- 
ministration to evaluate the objectives 
and goals of this college, and to take a 
firm stance on their goals and objectives 
with minimal fluctuation in the future. 
And as students, let's all hope that those 
goals are for a more progressive future 
for the college.

Maxwell Club to Sponsor 
Sports Medicine Seminar 

The Robert W. Maxwell Memorial 
Football Club, Inc. will sponsor a Sports 
Medicine Seminar at Delaware Valley 
College on Sunday, June 3. 

The seminar is intended for athletic 
trainers, coaches, physical education in- 
structors, high school and college stu- 
dent trainers as well as other allied health 
personnel. The Seminar will provide parti- 
cipants with information that will enable 
them to recognize and manage the prob- 
lems associated with sports injuries. 

Jack Foley, A.T.,C., the Head Athletic 
Trainer at Delaware Valley College, will 
serve as Program Director. 

"We are pleased to be able to sponsor 
this program," said Francis J. (Reds) Bag- 
nell, President of the Maxwell Club. 
"Sports Medicine is an extremely impor- 
tant topic today It's something that every- 
one, from the youth league level on up, 
ought to be aware of." 

The Seminar will be held in the Student 
Center from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. 
There will be a $10 materials and work- 
shop cost for all registrants. 

Some of the topics to be covered in 
the Seminar are: "Evaluation of the In- 
jured Athlete," "The Role of Diagnostic 

Dear Editors 

We hear that DVC is not like the "real 
world" and after seeing the student apathy 
this past weekend I would hope that this 
is true. A-Day is a student-organized, stu- 
dent-run weekend and requires the stu- 
dent body as a whole to participate in 
making this event work. 

A-Day is not just one big party as many 
students seem to believe. A number of 
people have worked very hard all year to 
make this weekend the success that it is, 
but why should this small group sacrifice 
their time and effort for the good of those 
who do nothing. 

I have been very negative to this point. 
I should be congratulating the p)eoplc who 
organized the event, worked in the booths, 
helped to set up a display, exhibited or in 
some way helped to make A-Day better 
for all. 

It would be a shame to see this annual 
event dropped or changed in any way but 
without the student support it can only 
continue to go downhill. This college 
sells students on the ideal of "hands on 
experience" and this hands on approach 
is what makes this event so great. 

In closing I would like to say, DVC is 
like the "real world" in that to get some- 
thing from it you must also give a little of 
yourself. The students are what makes this 
school unique and I sure hope those 
who did not stay for A-Day or did not in 
some capacity help in its success, realize 
that they could have made this A-Day 
just a little better.

Y DVC Gets Pathfinder 
Cow Award 

Delaware Valley College was recently 
presented with the American Angus Asso- 
ciation Pathfinder Cow Award for DVC 
Pride 1858. This cow has produced four 
calves with an average weaning ratio of 

The Pathfinder Award is given to cows 
who meet rigid requirements for early 
calving and regularity of calving. This 
also qualifies the animals for the 1983 
Pathfinder Report which will appear in 
the May issue of the Angus Journal. 

"I believe awards of this type indicate 
the improvement inperformance and qual- 
ity of our cattle herd." said Dr. Hofsaess. 


On April 18, 1984, the Delaware Val- 
ley College Ayrshire Herd was classified 
by the National Ayrshire Breeder's Asso- 
ciation classifier, Gary Witt. 

The classification program involved 
evaluating each cow's overall type and 
comparing her to the ideal Ayrshire cow. 
In addition, there are 13 major linear 
traits that are evaluated which are used 
in a mating program to help correct the 
individual cow's functional trait -weakness. 

The results of the final scores for the 
Del Val Ayrshire herd are as follows: 

4 excellents (90% -f ), 6 very good 
(80 to 89%), and 3 good plus (70 to 
79% of ideal) for a herd average of 
84 92. The breed average is about 80% 
of ideal. 

Special thanks to Jim Quartuccio, 
Herd Supervisor, and to all the students 
who assisted in the classiftoation program.

The men's track team traveled to Frank- 
lin field this past weekend for the P«nn 
Relays. This is not only a major event of 
the season but is the final preparation for 
the MAC Championships, held at Messiah 
College today and tomorrow. 
! At the Penn Relays the Aggies only 
win came in the Pop Haddleton Memorial 
4 X 400 relay. It marks the second 
straight year the Aggies brought home 
this award, as they covered the distance 
in 3:19.9. Susquehanna, the Aggies big- 
gest competition in this race and again 
this weekend at MACs. was never really 
in the race after dropping the baton on 
the second leg handoff. 

The Aggies' team consisted of Edson 
Barrett (50.7). Tyler Smith (49.7), Chip 
Zen- (49.7). and Al Benner (49.6). 

The Aggies are at Messiah College this 
weekend for the MAC Championships 
and will be trying for the MAC crown 
which has been owned by Susquehanna 
for the past three seasons. 


As I complete my fourth year as 
Sports Editor of Ram Pages, I would just 
like to take a moment to thank the coaches 
and Sports Information Director Joe 
Ferry. 1 have watched the athletic pro- 
gram at DVC grow over this time and 
with the devotion shown by all these 
people I am sure it will continue to pros- 
per in the future.

The Aggies record dipped to 7-5 over- 
all and 4-4 in the MAC as they lost both 
ends of a twinbill to Scranton last week. 

In the first game the Aggies got a two 
RBI double from Michele Forry and an 
RBI single from Carol Serik as they 
scored three runs in the first inning, only 
to lose the contest 6-3. The Aggies could 
not get any runs in the second game, los- 
ing that one, 1-0. 

"We just couldn't score." said Coach 
Ron Johnson, "They came down here 
ranked in the top 20 in the nation and I 
don't think they were that much better 
than us. They played error free ball but 
we just couldn't get our hits." 

The Aggies finished their season on 
Wednesday when they traveled to Wilkes.

Greg Hoffstetter shot a 72 in qualifying, 
last Saturday and went on to finish third 
in the MAC golf championships. 

Hoffstetter. who was one of the Aggie 
leaders all season shot an 81 on the se- 
cond day of competition to finish third, 
behind players from Franklin and Marshall 
and Ursinus. This finish was the first 
medal for an Aggie in a number of years 
and considering there was 105 partici- 
pants was a very big accomplishment. 

The Aggies as a team made the cut to 
play in the second day of competition 
and finished 14th in the MAC. 

"Greg played very well." said Coach 
Al Wilson. "And. the team did very well 
as a whole."

The Aggies have won the MAC North- 
eastern Division which earns them the 
right to play the Northwestern Division 
champions, the Wilkes Colonels, tomor- 
row, in the first round of the MAC play- 

With a 9-8 overall record and a 7-3 
mark in the MAC. the Aggies after a split 
with Farleigh-Dickinson on Sunday, had 
to wait for the outcome of the Scranton- 
Upsala game to see if they would be tie 
or the outright winners of the division. 
With a win the Royals would have forced 
a playoff game on Wednesday, but a loss 
by Scranton gave the Aggies the title. 

On Saturday the Aggies did drop both 
ends of a doubleheader to non-league 
opponent. Moravian; losing the first 
game 2- 1 in 10 innings and the second 

After dropping the first game to FDD 
(7-5) the Aggies bounced back to win 
game two 13-0 and force the situation 
with Scranton. Bob McEvoy lifted his pit- 
ching record to 5-0 by tossing a four hit- 
ter; he has only allowed 17 hits in 35 inn- 
ings this season and has an earned run 
average of 1.80. Emil Novak provided 
most of the offensive power. Novak, 
who leads the team in batting average 
(.404). slugging average (.744). and 
runs batted in (19), drove in four runs in 
the second game, three of them coming

Admissions Volunteer 

A one day seminar on the College's Admissions Pro- 
gram has been scheduled for Saturday, September 8, 
1984. The seminar, to be held on campus, has been 
planned in an effort to familiarize those wishing to assist 
in the College's Admissions effort as to the latest ad- 
vances in the College's academic and extracurricular 

The scheduled program includes a review of the ad- 
missions process as well as general introductory ses- 
sions on each academic division. 

Interested students are encouraged to participate in 
the seminar as students are often the most effective 
representatives of the College. Current students can 
also be most helpful in updating alumni and other vol- 
unteers as to the latest changes on campus. 

Those students who are interested in participating in 
the seminar can sign up or receive more information by

New Infirmary 

A new location has been established for the Health 
Services Center in the rear of Elson Hall. These new 
quarters have been developed to further improve our 
ability to serve the medical nveds of our student bod^. 
Parking has been provided behind Elson Hall (along- 
side of Eisner Hall) to accommodate those occasions 
when transporation is necessary. 

Entrance to the new infirmary is located at the rear of 
Elson Hall. Infirmary hours will be posted on the various 
campus bulletin boards. 

The Health Services Center also provides confiden- 
tial, personal counseling. These services are offered to 
students on a drop-in basis. Wednesdays from 2-5 
p.m. and Thursdays from 5-8 p.m. Students ar« en- 
couraged to use this service in order to deal with any 
questions concerning adjustment to the college experi- 
ence, (stress, anxiety, depression, etc.) 

Introducing CISM 

— taken from Green & Gold Horizons 

In response to an ever-growing need for graduates 
trained in the field of computer information, the college 
now offers a major in Computer Information Systems 
Management (CISM). 

" The CISM program is a natural out-growth of de- 
velopments in our Business Administration program." 
said Dr. John Mertz, dean of academics. Instead of 
focusing on the computer as a machine as is done in 
computer science programs, our major will focus on 
current business applications of the computer." 

A student who majors in CISM will automatically 
minor in Business Administration. A student who ma- 
jors in Business Administration can elect to minor in 
CISM. As with every other major, students will be re- 
quired to complete twenty-four weeks of practical work 
experience within the major. 

The program's stated aim is to develop uniquely 
qualified graduates to fill the career needs in the public 
and private sectors of corporate America. Dean Mertz 
indicated that the college hopes to have between 1(X) 
and 120 students enrolled in the major. 

Dr. Theodore Christie, asscx:iate professor of mathe- 
matics, was named acting chairman of the CISM De- 
partment. In that capacity, Dr. Christie will lead the 
search for a permanent department chairman and addi- 
tional faculty members as well as counsel students in- 
terested in the new major. 

Most of the equipment needed for the CISM major is 
already on hand. A Prime system with sixteen terminals 
for student use was just installed this past September. In 
addition to the Prime system, the college has a variety 
of Eagle and Apple personal computers. 

"Students in the CISM major will gain experience on 
each different type of equipment we have," said Dr. 

Sometime in the near future, probably next summer, 
Allman Hall will be renovated from the ground up and 
made into a computer center. 

Welcome and good luck to all the new students who 
are enrolled in the CISM program.

Play Fair 

by Jean Meyer 

How do you make freshmen feel comfortable in a 
new surrounding? On the first day, the only people 
they know is their roommate! Well. DVC has a great 
way to show their warmth to the class of '88 and "Play 
Fair" is the answer. ' ' ■■ '• . ■^■ 

On Monday, the 27th. "Play Fair." hosted by Jeff 
and sponsored by Student Government, helped make 
the freshmen class feel like an "aggie." Jeff ac- 
complished this impossible task by asking the students 
to participate in doing crazy things. For example. Jeff 
had everyone finding others with the same birthdate. 
Once in a group, the students sat in a circle on each 
others knees. I know "crazy!" But the night continued 
with forming groups of two's and learning how to start 
an argument with their partners. The roof almost ex- 
ploded with all the yelling! Then we were told to form 
groups of three's. One person went first and told the 
other two in the group to do a crazy thing. For exam- 
ple, hugging all the gorgeous guys or walking up to a 
girl and telling her that she is pretty. At the end of the 
night, we picked partners and instead of dancing nor- 
mally, we danced back to back and then exchanged 
partners at the sound of a whistle. 

Throughout the entire night, the laughter never 
stopped. At the end of the evening, instead of shy. 
confused faces, the students felt great and very friend- 
ly towards each other. For the class of '88, the first 
night of their stay at DVC started with a boom! 


The Delaware Valley College Men's and Women's 
Cross Country Teams extend an open invitation to any- 
one who might be interested in. running cross country 
this fall. Although prior running experience is some- 
times helpful, a significant number of our varsity run- 
ners began their running careers here at DVC. 

Both the Men's and Women's Teams had winning 
seasons in 1983. but both teams lost some key people 
from their 1983 squads, and therefore there is a great 
need for new team members to help compliment those 
returning from last year's squads. 

Team captains for this year's squads will be Tom 
Reynolds and Kim Hack The track coach Mr. Jim 
Eicorn will be coaching the Women's Team and Dr. 
Bob Berthold will be returning for his sixteenth year as 
head Men's coach. 

If you think that you might be the least bit interested 
in running cross country here at Delaware Valley Col- 
lege, you are urged to report to the Lobby of the James 
Work Gymnasium between 4:00 and 4:15 P.M. pre- 
pared to practice Please look for and introduce yourself 
to either of the coaches or captains. 

Aggie Football Camp Notes 

by Duke Blessing 

On Friday. August 17. the Aggies opened up the 
1984 football season with 154 prospective players in 
camp. Thanks to the recruiting efforts of coaches Wil- 
son. Massino and Davis, the Aggies have the quantity 
to develop a strong team, very deep at each position. 
Former Central Bucks East head coach Chuck Rocconi 
is leading the way for the Aggies offense which has 
several key starters returning. 

It's much too early for any predictions for the upcom- 
ing year but. if the quantity can be transformed into 
quality, an MAC championship seems very possible 
and probable.

What's Gone on Before? 
(The Summer in Review) 

by E.D.W, 

Well, it's hard to believe it, but Labor 
Day is over and school is in full swing. 
Before we get lost in the new school 
year, let's take a look at what has hap- 
pened during the summer. 
.., If you think back to February, you will 
remember that this year is a leap year, a 
four-year event which means one extra 
day of presidential campaigning. The 
first party to wow us with their conven- 
tion was the Democrats. The first black 
presidential hopeful in history. Jesse 
Jackson, moved America to a new 
awareness of itself. This new awareness 
was emphasized with the nomination of 
Geraldine Ferraro as the first woman 
candidate for Vice President. Her run- 
ning mate is none other than former Vice 
President Walter Mondale. 

As presidential elections are four-year 
events, so are the Olympic Games. The 
XXIII Olympic Games of Los Angeles 
brought lots of first's and in more ways 
than one. For the first time in history, 
U.S. men and women received medals 
in gymnastics, the men's team a gold and 
the women's a silver. These athletes won 
American's hearts. Who will ever forget 
Mary Lou Retton's perfect lO's on the 
vault. But the Olympic first's were not 
the only medals. For the first time the 
Olympic Games held a women's mara- 
thon and though Joan Benoit won the 
race, all of our hearts went out to Gabriela 
Andersen Schiess, the Swiss marathon 
runner who staggered and swayed on 
the verge of collapse as she entered the 
LA. Coliseum. All of us wanted to reach 
out and help her along but to her, all she 
could focus on was that no one touch 
her and to cross the finish line. She did 
finish, collapsing just past the line and 
placing 23rd. Yes indeed, it was a sum- 
mer for the ladies — almost. .jr 'i 

In August. Miss America, for the first 
time ever, had to resign her post due to 
explicit photographs of her being 
published in Penthouse Magazine. 
. Being overshadowed with political flap 
about finances the Republicans renomi- 
nated Ronald Reagan and George Bush 
to run for President while the Democrats 
swam for their lives in the pool of Ferraro 

To prove the underdog can win. the 
FBI sting backfired as John DeLorean 
was found not guilty on cocaine charges. 

We now have to decide — will this fall 
be as action packed as the summer of 


Well, it's official ~ DVC will be work- 
ing together with the Men-ist Wood Agri- 
cultural College from England on a 1985 
Philadelphia Flower Show exhibit. 

This should be an experience of a life- 
time, as two of the finest Ornamental 
Horticulture colleges in the world plan 
and produce a show-stopper Rower 
Show exhibit. This will be one of the 
most ambitious exhibits ever undertaken 
by DVC. 

We need good people to make it hap- 
pen. If you have an interest in working 
on the exhibit in any way. look for 
notices about the next meeting or contact 
Dr Martin whose office is located in the 
Greenhouse complex. Join us! Come 
out and make this year's Flower Show a 
show-stopping success. 

The Hillman Sitting Garden 

by E.D.W. 

' Some of you may have been wonder- 
ing what is going on next to the Library. 
The construction work is the foundation 
for a new garden. This past year, a 
donation was made by Mrs. Hillman and 
her family to create a new garden on 
campus. Mrs. Hillman is the daughter of 


Gene Lewis has been appointed Act- 
ing Chairman of the newly-created Com- 
puter Information Systems Management 
Department at DVC, president Joshua 
Feldstein announced. 

"We are proud to have someone like 
Mr. Lewis join the College," said Dr. 
Feldstein. "We look forward to having 
him make our new program grow over 
the next few years " 
■ Lewis, a 37-year-old New Britain resi- 
dent, is anxious to undertake the chal- 
lenge of making the CISM major, which 
will be offered for the first time this fall, 
as successful as the College's 10 other 

" "As far as I'm concerned the CISM 
program at DVC is being offered at the 
right time," said Lewis. "The demand is 
out there for people trained in the com- 
puter field and the demand will be there 
for at least the next 20 years. The CISM 
program is a significant enhancement of 
the College's already fine programs." 

Lewis has spent the last 12 years in 
computer systems-related jobs. Most 
recently, he was employed as Systems 
Marketing Manager for Drexelbrook 
Engineering Company in Horsham. Pre- 
viously, Lewis spent four years as a 
Senior Instructor in process management 
systems for Honeywell, Inc. 

Lewis was graduated from Grove City 
College with a degree in Mathematics in 
1%8 and earned his Masters in Systems 
Management from the University of 
Southern California. He went on to 
serve five years in the United States 
Air Force, three as a Minuteman ICBM 
crew commander and two as a training 

Lewis' duties at the College will be to 
manage and administer the academic 
portion of the CISM program and to 
recruit new students for the program. 

"I will be helping to find people to 
teach, primarily in the evening program 
at first but later, as the program grows, 
for the day school," said Lewis. "I'll also 
be responsible for letting high school 
students know about our program, as 
well as teaching some of the courses." 

Lewis and his wife Dianne have one 
child, Denise, who is one-year-old. 




the school's founder, Dr. Krauskoph, 
therefore it is fitting that the garden 
be constructed next to the Krauskoph 
Library. But Mrs. Hillman is not the only 
person connected with the garden. The 
design for it was provided by alumnus 
Steve Quigly '73 and the construction by 
Mr. Herbert Millstone, class of '53. The 
garden will consist of brick areas in in- 
tricate patterns. The plants for the 
garden were selected by Mr. Ray and will 
include dogwoods and azalea plantings 
along with perennial plantings for year- 
round color. The plants will be planted 
by the school grounds department under 
Tim Vericallo with completion scheduled 
lor October. .^■■■^;:^^^..,--; ^.;-- :.:,,/-, ,-^_:

by Duke Blessing 

I had several long-winded articles pre- 
pared for Raw Pages concerning my 
thoughts on the 1984 summer Olympics 
recently completed in Los Angeles. 1 
contemplated writing in praise of the 
likes of Joan Benoit, the winner of the 
first-ever Olympic marathon for women; 
the men's gymnastic team, the multi- 
talented and humble Carl Lewis, the 
untouchable Edwin Moses and Greg 
Louganis, the unchallenged U.S. men's 
basketball team (sorry guys of the 1960 
Olympic team, this group is the greatest 
ever), the clutch performance of Mary 
Lou Retton and the tear- jerking, heart 
wrenching victory by Greco-Roman 
wrestler Jeff Blatnick who only two short 
years ago was fighting for his life. >- 

With all the positives mentioned 
above, it would seem like these Olympics 
were ultra-successful even without the 
Soviet-Bloc nations. But there are a few 
black spots which I can't seem to get out 
of my mind and it makes me wonder 
what the Olympics' true meaning is and 
what they are becoming. 

The judging and scoring for the boxing 
matches involving U.S. fighters was an 
absolute disgrace! I hope nobody is 
seriously comparing this team to the 
1976 boxing team, because frankly, 
there is no comparison whatsoever! 

Another mess occurred during the 
Kathy Sullivan interview of Mary Decker. 
Miss Sullivan really put the screws to 
Mary Decker and broke her down to 
tears. She tried to make up for all of it 
with an apology at the end but it was too 
late, the damage had been done. 

Finally, I have to comment on the two 
biggest jokes of any Olympics — and 
they had to start during the Hollywood 
Olympics — rhythmic gymnastics and 
synchronized swimming. What is the 
purpose of these events? I wonder if 
Tracie Ruiz has washed all the gelatin our 
of her hair yet? Has she found the key to 
unlock her jaw and frozen smile? Have 
the girls from rhythmic gymnastics un- 
tangled themselves from their ribbons 
yet? Who ever did win the hoola-hoop 
portion of the event? With the allowance 
of these two new spectacles in the Olym- 
-pics. it really does leave quite a bit to the 
imagination as far as what else should be 
included in the future. 

If you have any suggestions (humor- 
ous or not) for the 1988 summer Olym- 
pics or any comments concerning the 
views in this article, write to me in care of 
Ram Pages. Box *988 and voice your

Exchange with Penn State 


by Duke Blessing 

Although it is not officially over until 
mathematical elimination, the 1984 Phil- 
adelphia Phillies have to be hearing the 
voice of the fat lady who has parked her 
big bottom in the south side of Chicago, 
at homey Wrigley Field.

tunistic characters will watch their ex- 
teammates waltz the National League 
East division title and will sit back and 
wonder what might have been. 

Along with the numerous blunders on 
the field the team is missing the spirit and 
motivation that has typified Phillies base- 
ball for the past decade. Listless ball- 
players not ever half-heartedly attempt- 
ing to search themselves for some soul. 
The Veterans Stadium "boo-birds" have 
plenty of reason to bellow in full force. 

Fellows, hear my plea, although the 
weight of the fat lady has apparently 
drained your desire to continue to give it 
your all. do a favor for yourselves and 
especially your loyal fans — play out the 
string with hustle, determination and 
class because spring training is only a 
little over five months away and 1985 
brings another chance to shut the fat lady

Aggte$ Open Season at 

by Joe Ferry 

Delaware Valley College will kick off 
its 1984 football season by taking on 
Randolph -Macon College, located in 
Ashland. Virginia, Saturday. September 
8. Game time is 2 p.m. 

The Aggies went 6-4 in 1983 after 
winning or sharing the Middle Atlantic 
Conference Northern Division title the 
previous three years. The Aggies were 
4-4 in the MAC last year. 

DVC head coach Al Wilson, begin- 
ning his ninth season, is hoping his team 
can recapture the winning magic of the 
championship years, 

"I'm excited about this season," said 
Wilson , whose team took on Gettysburg 
College in a scrimmage last week. "We 
lost a number of good players from last 
year and they will be hard to replace. But 
we have a solid nucleus returning and we 
had a pretty good recruiting year. I think 
we'll have a team which gets better as it 
plays more together." 

Senior Gary Kemberling will start at 
quarterback against Randolph- Macon. 
Kemberling replaces record-setting QB 
Tom O'Neill, who graduated. 

Senior Nick Russo moves into the 
halfback slot vacated by Cosmo Losco. 
who also graduated. Despite a subpar 
season in 1983, Russo begins this year 
just 850 yards short of Eric Reynolds' all- 
time rushing record. 

Senior John Avallone will take Russo's 
spot at fullback. Avallone suffered 
through two injury-plagued seasons 
before finally getting through last year 
without any major hurts. He had a fine 
camp and appears ready to enjoy a solid 
season . 

The final member of the backfield will 
be sophomore Paul Dennis. Dennis is 
coming off a major knee injury but has 
appeared solid in workouts. 

The offensive line is a strong area, with 
four of five starters returning, in George 
Stahl, Eric Prostko, Joe Rada, John 
Mazzola and newcomer Joe Harby. the 
Aggies have an ideal blend of size, 
strength, quickness and experience. 

Split end Dan Glowatski starts the sea- 
son just 1 1 catches and 66 yards short of 
the College's all-time records in both 
categories. A senior. Glowatski has good 
speed and excellent hands. 

One problem for the Aggies, however, 
has been finding someone to comple- 
ment Glowatski's pass-catching abilities. 
Kevin Boyle, who was showing signs of 
developing into that kind of receiver, 
decided not to return to DVC for his 
junior year. 

"It's a major area of concern for us," 
said Wilson. "After Glowatski, we just 
haven't been able to find someone who 
can help us." 

A Different Kind of Learning 
Experience at DVC 

Every Friday night at 7 p.m. you can 
expect quite a bit of activity in the Stu- 
dent Center Music Room. That's where 
the DVC Christian Fellowship meets to 
delve into the Holy Scriptures through 
song, sharing and discussion. Every Fri- 
day night the Fellowship hosts a speaker 
(usually a local pastor) who talks about 
some aspect of the Christian way of life. 
The Fellowship is also planning other ac- 
tivities, such as a Fall Retreat (September 
28-30), weekend activities, picnics and 
community service projects for this 
semester. CF invites anyone who is in- 
terested to stop by and join us. And may 
God bless! 

The same holds true at tight end, 
where junior Brian Breneman is the 
returnee. Wilson has tried several can- 
didates at tight end to spell Breneman 
but has not yet been successful . 

Defensively, the questions are even 
more numerous. All-American tackle 
Dave Murphy graduated, leaving a gap- 
ing hole in the defensive line. Junior Rob 
Charette, last year's leading tackier, is 
the anchor. Sophomore Chuck Heiber 
has asserted himself at one of the end 
spots while junior John Riley inherits the 

The linebacking crew seems solid with 
returnees Joe Chrismer, Jim Hannon 
and Bruce Sweda. The secondary, how- 
ever, is still unsettled, with junior Joe 
Cox, Steve Clark, senior Bob D'Arpa 
and senior Joe Radaszewski the leading 
candidates for starting jobs. 

In Randolph-Macon, the Aggies will 
be facing a team which started slowly last 
year but wound up winning five of its last 
six games. The Yellow Jackets finished 
with an overall record of 5-5 and an Old 
Dominion Athletic Conference record of 

The Aggies won last year's meeting 
between the two teams by a 33-0 score. 

Randolph- Macon has 13 starters back 
from last year, including offensive tackle 
Doug Seay. defensive back Jay Pitts, 
running back Greg Amick and running 
back Alan Wright (682 yards rushing. 22 
receptions, four touchdowns) . 

Defensive tackle Tom Shaw, who had 
10 sacks among his 90 team-leading 90 
tackles last year, is another key returnee 
for the Yellow Jackets. 

"This is a big game for us," said Wil- 
son. "It's important that we start this 
season off on a good foot. Randolph- 
Macon is a very good team. We'll have 
to be ready to give it our best shot." 

After returning from Ashland, the Ag- 
gies will begin preparations for their 
home-opener against Albright College 
Saturday, September 15 at James Work 
Memorial Stadium.

Mrs. Jean Work 

Decades of Dedication 


After 34 years of service to Delaware 
Valley College, Mrs. Jean Work, wife of 
past president. James Work, has decided 
to retire as assistant to the president. 

Mrs. Work's career began in 1950 when 
she served as a secretary. She later 
became an administrative assistant to the 
then president Work. She served in that 
post, till her husband's death in 1977. At 
that time she became vice president of 
administrative affairs. During those years 
Mrs. Work was responsible for many 
things, including the department of per- 
sonnel, the post office, motor vehicles, 
house keeping, and overseer of Dean of 
students office. Later on she served as 
business manager and a liason to the stu- 
dent body and student government. 
(When talking with anyone who knew 
her, the students were her major concern.) 
In testimony to her dedication to the stu- 
dent body the class of '75 honored her 
with the Jean Work memorial garden out- 
side the Work gymnasium. 

Mrs. Work was much respected by her 
co-workers, as she was always there, 
whether it was a campus concern or a 
personal problem. Mrs. Work is viewed 
by many as a big sister, favorite aunt, or 
dear friend. To many, Mrs. Work was 
the family person in the administration, 
she made school home. 

In most recent years Mrs. Work served 
as vice president and assistant to the 
president. (1980-1983) when she de- 
cided to retire, she remained as the assis- 
tant to the president until this year. 

On Sunday, September 9th Mrs. Work 
was honored at a dinner, where many 
members of the Board of Trustees, (since 
1977 Mrs. Work has been secretary and 
still holds that post), faculty, administra- 
tion, students, and alumni turned out to 
say thanks and good luck. 

Mrs. Work still plans to come to foot- 
ball games (a true aggie at heart) and 
other school events such as homecoming 
and A-Day. One can only assume that 
Florida or the Bahamas also fit into her

What's Happening around 
the O.H. Building? 

By Jamie Beck 

Our new O.H. building was erected 
last summer and finished late in the fall. 
As the workmen were regrading the 
grounds this summer they encountered a 
number of complications. First, they ran 
into a septic field, next the big oak tree by 
the main building died, and finally, they 
discovered flooding behind the building 
due in part to drainage backup by the rail- 
road tracks. Currently, they are trying to 
solve these problems using a variety of 
methods. At one time they tried to break 
the septic field but then decided to put a 
concrete platform over top to protect it. 
The workers are having more difficulty 
with taking down the oak tree than ex- 
pected, but the tree should be down by 
the printing of this article. They will also 
be taking down a dead tree by Eisner 
Hall, which is the new audio- visual 

The area around the OH. building 
will be landscaped this coming spring 
and some of it may even be done this fall. 
Mr. Blau and students in his design class 
are developing plans for the landscaping. 
Plans are to build a Dwarf Conifer Garden 
that will be by the library and stretch to 
Eisner Hall, which then connects to the 
Hillman Sitting Garden. 

An OH. major alumnus of D.V.C., 
Martin Brooks, is assisting the department 
with the Dwarf Conifer Garden project. 
Frederick Gray is the coordinator of ar- 
boreba and the Dwarf Conifer. The time 
it will take for completion will be a couple 
of years. Plans are to initially get some of 
the Dwarf Conifer plants growing close 
together, then to thin them out and 

spread the plants

The first dance of the 1984 fall season 
began with a bang on Saturday night. 
But it was not just an old plain style 
dance, where everyone stands in groups 
of twos and threes and watches a half 
dozen on the dance floor. No, it was sure 
different! Why, because it was a video 
dance. Everyone either watched the vid- 
eo, danced or did both! It was really wild! 

Or was it wild because it was the first 
dance held in the new Student Center. 
What ever the reason. I am sure that 
everyone there had a great time! 

The video dance was produced by the 
Electric Video Company, Inc. on Sep- 
tember 8th. To produce their music and 
video, they use state of the art "Sony" 
video equipment and "Bose" concert 
system . The system combined resulted in 
a very good time. 

The Electric Video played exciting vid- 
eos such as Michael Jackson's "Thriller" 
and "Beat It", David Bowie, and Rod 
Stewart. They played a variety of songs 
to please everyone. 

Special thanks go to Student Govern- 
ment for sponsoring the Wild Dance par- 
ty and to the Electric Video for putting on 
the first dance of the semester.

How many of you are bored and tired 
of the same old dull weekends? Tired of 
sitting in your rooms and watching TV.? 
Why don't you do something for yourself 
and your school? We are getting people 
together on weekends to work on different 
areas of the campus, to improve and 
beautify it. to make it look like it should. 
The school does not have the man power 
to do it all themselves so we would like to 
help them. It's going to be a lot of fun to 
get out with your friends and work to- 
gether on cleaning up and fixing areas 
such as Lake Archer and the Arboretum, 
the woodland area behind the Ag. build- 
ing, the Dwarf Conifer garden, the green- 
house area, and many other areas. If any- 
one has any suggestions on things to do 
or any ideas about the outside of the 
campus please drop a note in my box — 
Alan. Box 950. or stop by Goldman 106 
for further details. Let's see if we can get 
people together, who care and want to 
keep busy, and get this campus on a role 
of beauty. Tools and any equipment 
needed will be supplied. 

Saturday, September 8th we went to 
Lake Archer and started on the Arbore- 
tum. We worked on cleaning the area 
around the lake and the Arboretum itself. 
Also some prunning and planting were 
done. Overall we had a good time im- 
proving our second home and hope to 
see more people show up next time. We 
had about eight people for the morning 
and about five in the afternoon. Saturday. 
September 15th might be our next day 
out at the lake. Look for details and a 
sign-up in the cafe. 

I would also like to thank everyone 
who showed up Saturday and would like 
to especially thank Mr. Ray for his time 
and devotion he put out with us. Thank

On Wednesday night September 5, 
over 40 Doylestown residents and many 
more DVC students watched one of the 
funniest and informative shows on hyp- 
notism this college has seen in years. 
James J. Mapes, a fourteen-year veteran 
of hypnosis therapy, not only made us 
laugh until we ached, but set our minds 
at ease concerning the untrue fears of 
hypnotism and it*, so called ill effects. He 
first gave a brief history of this technique 
and explained the six stages of hypno- 
tism. At first 27 people came to the 
stage. After a few relaxation suggestions 
and a basic suggestibility test (concen- 
trating on one thing) only 18 people 
were left on stage. These remaining 
voyagers were put aboard the space ship 
PSI (representing the 23rd letter of the 
Greek alphabet and a symbol identifying 
or symbolizing those parts of our minds 
that can't be proven to exist by science) . 
At one point, they believed a little green 
man was under their seat and one stu- 
dent. Chuck Hess, was so scared of his 
miniature gumby that he fell off the stage 
right on his rear end! The participants 
were made to do a variety of things such 
as doing the twist, moving in slow mo- 
tion and reacting to different types of 
movies as six-year-olds. The finale con- 
sisted of only three people. Each was 
brought back in time first to 12 and then 
to six-years-old. At each different time 
period they put their signatures on the 
black board with a kindergarten drawing 
to boot. Everyone had a great time and I 
hope that Mr. Mapes continues to bring 
laughter and enlightenment to DVC stu- 
dents for years to come.

Aggies Surprised by 


Prepare for MAC Opener 

If there was a silver lining in the dark 
cloud that was Delaware Valley College's 
season -opening 34-23 loss to Randolph- 
Macon College Saturday afternoon, it is 
that the Aggies probably won't commit 
eight turnovers in a game the rest of the 

And considering the fact that the Ag- 
gies racked up 379 yards in total offense 
despite the four lost fumbles and the four 
interceptions, brighter days may still be in 
the offing. Aggies head coach Al Wilson 
is hoping they will begin Saturday when 
the Aggies take on Albright College in a 
1:30 p.m. game at James Work Memo- 
rial Stadium. 

"We just didn't execute." said Wilson 
after the Randolph -Macon game. "We 
just made too many mistakes. You can't 
give up the ball eight times and still 
expect to win." 

Despite the loss there wett a couple of 
highlights for the Aggies. Senior running 
back Nick Russo had one of the best 
games of his collegiate career, carrying 
the ball 28 times for 111 yards and two 
touchdowns. Russo also caught three 
passes for 40 yards. Russo was a real 
workhorse during the Aggies' 18-play 
scoring drive in the first half, toting the 
ball 1 1 times for 33 yards. 

Another player enjoying a fine game 
was senior split end Dan Glowatski. who 
caught seven passes for 151 yards and a 
touchdown. When he caught a five-yard 
TD pass from Gary Kemberling in the 
second quarter, Glowatski became the 
Aggies' all-time receiving yardage leader, 
passing Harry Capozzoli. Glowatski now 
has 1.929 yards receiving in his career. 
He needs five more catches to surpass 
Capozzoli in that category also. 

Defensively, the Aggies were led by 
sophomore middle linebacker Jim Han- 
non. senior tackle Joe Risi and tackle 
Bob Charette. Risi was named Doyles- 
town Moose Club Player of the Week for 
his performance. 

"Wc played well at times," said 
Wilson. "But we need more consistency 
and concentration. We'll have to have 
our act together this week against 
Albright." " .. v. 

The Lions will be playing their season - 
opener this week against Delaware Val- 
ley College. Albright was 5-4 last year. 
The Aggies won last year's contest by a 
26-7 score and have now won five 
straight games against the Lions. 
Albright's last win in the series came in 
1977 by a 35-8 score. Albright leads the 
season series between the teams by a 
10-9 margin. 

The Lions have 16 starters back from 
last year's team. They are led on offense 
by running back Chris Arnout. who car- 
ried the ball 189 times for 661 yards and 
a touchdown last year. 


On Tuesday, September 4th. the DVC 
cross country team made its 1984 debut 
in a scrimmage meet against Bucks 
County Community College. The team 
showed strong individual strength as well 
as good pack running in an impressive 
20-37 win. Junior Ken McDaid 6i DVC 
won the race in a time of 29:29 on our 
5.4 mile course. He was followed by soph- 
omore Dave Spotts in second (30:22). 
DVC then took fourth and fifth places in 
the persons of junior transfer. Al Krouse 
and senior captain, Tom Reynolds. Clos- 
ing our the scoring for the Aggies was 
Don Billet (8th). Rick Johnson (10th). 
and John Thomson (llth).;*^ >^ -;!; ^c ; 

On Saturday, the Harriers competed 
in the Lebanon Valley Invitational. The 
meet attracted 190 runners from Division 
II and 111 schools. When all of the results 
were tallied. DVC emerged with an im- 
pressive 10th place finish (out of 21 
schools). Of the 21 teams present, 11 
were from the MAC Conference and 
DVC was the 4th place team in that divi- 
sion. Individually. Ken McDaid again led 
the way for the Aggie finishing in 35th 
place. Once again he was followed closely 
by teammates Dave Spotts (57th). Tom 
Reynolds (60th). and Al Krouse (63rd). 
The team travels to Wilkes College 
tomorrow to compete against Wilkes. 
Kings College, and Bloomsburg.

Your article on the summer Olympics 
was very interesting but you seemed to 
have missed a few well appreciated sports. 
Women's volleyball was a very uplifting 
sport plus we came out with a silver 
medal. Women's basketball was also a 
highly emotional sport that ended up 
with a gold medal that you really should 
not have overlooked. Why not mention 
them, you mentioned men's basketball? 
Your nasty comments on synchronized 
swimming were ridiculous. Those girls 
spent nine years of their life trying to 
perfect their routine together and they 
deserved the gold medal they received. 
In my opinion Greco-Roman wrestling 
should be taken out of the Olympics, but 
we all have our opinion. 


Connie Hajioannou 

Dear Connie, 

I realize that I "missed" a few sports m 
my brief coverage of the Olympic high- 
lights but my intent was to touch on what 
I felt were the brightest parts of the two 
weeks and not to compose a doctoral 
thesis of the 1984 summer Olympics. 
.Any team that practices eight hours a 
day. six days a week for several years (as 
our women's volleyball team did) had 
better win a medal! As for the women's 
basketball team — they faced absolutely 
no competition.. 

My comments concerning synchronized 
swimming were based on the opinions of 
many sports analysts. Farmers spend four- 
teen to eighteen hours a day for an entire 
lifetime "perfecting their routine." but 
should farming becoming an olympic 
sport? Sports is guts, sweat, and deter- 
mination and 1 felt that synchronized 
swimming did not contain enough of any 
of these qualities. Thanks for the letter

Changes on Campus 
This Year 

Bv Jamil' Bfck 

TluTo fiavt' bff 11 iiunit'rous changys 
oti campus to make everythitig nicer for 

Mr Norman Schorr, an alumnus who 
IS in tht' aluminum busint'ss. provided us 
with iH'w scrfc'fiis for all the dorms. These 
screens will conserve energy by adding 
insulation to the dorms 

I)r Arthur Wolf, vice president of Fi- 
nancial Affairs and Planning and other 
membi'rs of the administratioit are very 
pleased with the work done on the second 
floor of Segal Hall The wf)rkmen put in 
a new ceiling atid new lights, in addition 
tf) takitig down the partitions to make a 
new Arts Center They also installed a 
new bf:)iler in Segal's basement which pro 
vides energy to Elson Hall. Segal Hall, 
and the Ruciley-Neumann Gym This 
boiler is a lot more energy efficient than 
the last one. 

We have a new Infirmary. Its located 
m the n-ar of HIson Hall. The unit takes 
the place of several bedrooms. While 
building the facility, the builders retiled 
tik' bathroom. The old infirmarv' in Ulman 
Hall is Ix'ing used for the community 
coordinator and student bedrooms. 

fiisner Hall has beei^ made into an 
Audio Visual Center. The builders got 
the interior redone to provide a nice, en- 
ergy saving facility and also make it a 
nice place for studv and storage. The 

lower level of the library will become 
more of a storage area for journals and 
magazines, while remaining as a study 

Many changes in the administration's 
office areas The Business Administration 
offices inoved from Lasker Hall to 
Allman where the Registrar used to be 
The Registrar moved to Lasker Hall 
where the Accounting office had been 
housed and the Accounting office moved 
to the previous location of the Business 
Administration offices. 

Both Cooke and Barness Halls were 
painted and new hall lights were installed 
to make the dorms brighter. 

The main parking lot is being expanded 
to make more parking space for students' 
parking. The workers cleared the space 
and laid gravel, but the stones will have 
to settle this year; during the summer of 
1985 the area will be blacktopped. 

An intramural field will be established 
behind the railroad tracks, opposite the 
football field. Two acres have been allo- 
cated for the field The field will be re- 
placing some of the crops in the orchard. 

The next big project is to create a com- 
puter center in Allman Hall. This will pro- 
vide more space for the computers 

Dr Wolf says he is very pleased with 
what has been done and that most of the 
cost for the building will be paid from the 
savings from the fuel and energy costs.

Another First 

for Mr. Adelson 

and for DVC 

Bu Tim Ireland 

After M) years of service to Del Val. 
Mr Adelson has been promoted from 
Acting Dean of Student Services to Dean 
of Student Services. This position was 
created only last year in an attempt to 
bring all the vanous student services 
together for coordination. So. he is the 
first to hold this position. 

Mr Adelson started at DVC back in 
1%4 as a research associate His reason 
for coming to DVC was to work under 
I)r Albert Schatz. co-discoverer of 
Streptocmycin. - ■ 

In 1958 he was asked to design the Bi- 
ology [department and became its first 
Department Chairperson. Later, when 
the school decided to combine the Biolo- 
gy, Chemistry, Math and Physics Depart- 
ments (Food Industry was added later). 
Department Chairman Adelson became 
[division Chairman of Science Adelson. 

Mr Adelson also holds the distinction 
of being the only faculty member at DVC 
to be appointed Associate Dean twice! 
He was appointed Associate Dean early 
in 1973 while he was still the Chairman 
of the Science Division. In September of 
1973 he suffered a heart attack and gave 
up his position He was re appointed 
Associate Dean about three years ago. 

More about his past: 

Mr Adelson has a Bachelors Degree 
in Biology along with a Master's Degree 
in Biology. He worked toward his Doc 

Plioto by Tim Iri'land 

torate at Rutgers University in zoology 
with an emphasis on Marine Biology, 
specifically working on the mortality of 
oysters in Delaware Bay He got to know 
Dr. Schatz while at Rutgers, who was 
Mr. Adelson's reasoP for coming to Del 

His new position: 

As Dean of Student Services. Mr Adel- 
son will work to coordinate all student 
services including: admissions, place- 
ment, student counseling, dining hall 
manager, infirmary (health services), 
superintendent of motor vehicles, security 
and Dean of Students. Mr. Adelson 

hopes that, "the coordination of these 
services will enable us to do a better job 
at providing for the needs of the students." 
He feels that they are moving in the right 
direction but that there is still much more 
to be done. "The student should feel com- 
fortable and happy with dining, social 
activities and living accomodations." 

Areas where improvements are already 
evident are in the placement office, head- 
ed by Mr. Craver. which is doing very 
well and in reestablishing communications 
between student government and the 
dining hall. 

Mr. Adelson claims that. "Our proce- 
dure is designed to improve and accom- 
plish." and he adds, "we will do it!" Their 
ultimate goal is to open a continual line 
of communication where, through the 
student government, the students can 
voice their concerns and pleasures. 

Mr. Adelson was chosen because the 
school was looking for someone who 
. could look at the students from both an 
academic standpoint and from a "campus 
life" standpoint. He feels that he has 
been here long enough to know what 
needs to be done. He feels that he is fur- 
ther qualified because he has a 19-year- 
old son, which enables him to have 
some understanding of our generation. 

One might think that with all these 
responsibilities he would have time to do 
little else yet, Mr. Adelson continues to 
assist Mr. Johnson with Ecology in the 
fall and to teach Histology in the spring. 
He does so because he likes to teach and 
he feels that the classroom contact with 
students helps him to keep his finger on 
the pulse of things. 

Good Luck Dean Adelson!

Dear Editors 

Summer's come and summer's gone 
but where are all our promised garbage 
cans? We went through about three 
years now without enough. Some of us 
went through it longer but let's hope we 
won't have to go through it any longer 
than this year. 1 think the school should 
purchase a can that can be permanently 
installed so none can be stolen. Let's see 
if we can get some cans so the garbage 
can be put where it belongs. 

Now let's also try to get everyone to- 
gether and put the waste where it belongs. 
I can't understand why someone would 
throw bottles, cans, paper and other 
wastes out of a window onto the grounds 
of a place where they spend nine months 
of their year. Why don't you slobs start 
realizing this is your home for the next 
few years and try to make it look like it 
should. Like Dr. Feldstein says, "This 
place will look like an island Paradise 

So let's work together, please work to- 
gether and chip in, pick up any trash you 
see now and put it in the cans and until 
we get new ones use the ones we already 
have. Thanks. 


A concerned neighbor.

How Good Are You 
At Chess? 

The Delaware Valley College Chess 
Club and the Doylestown Chess Club 
are co-sponsoring a nationally advertised, 
USCF rated chess tournament. Sunday 
September 23rd. open to the public. 
USCF is the United States Chess Federa- 
tion. The tournament is the Del Val Fall 
Quads. Each quad is a group of four play- 
ers that, in three games, play each other 
a game of chess. Games are played in 
the Student Center Coffeehouse at 
10:00 A.M., 1:00 P.M. and 4:00 P.M. 
Registration is at 9:00 A.M. The entry 
fee is $5.00. There is a first prize of 
$10.00 and a second prize of $5.00 for 
each quad. Ralph Bleiler of the Doyles- 
town Chess Club is the tournament 

Tournament chess games are a chal- 
lenge to play. Each player uses a clock, 
connected to his opponent's clock, so 
that each player has 40 minutes to make 
20 moves, 80 minutes to make 40 moves, 
etc. A player who runs out of time before 
his opponent forfeits the game because 
of time. Games can end at any time 
because of a mate. Most players keep a 
record of their moves during the game, 
to study or gloat over after the tournament. 

Visitors are welcome, provided there 
are no distracting noises, comments or 
movements. Del Val Quads are becom- 
ing a semi-annual event at Delaware Val- 
ley College, The winter quad was held 
this past February with Dr. Allison as the 
tournament director. There were 16 
players in the February tournament. 
Ratings ranged from unrated to 1996. 
The highest rated player in each quad 
did not always win. Wins must be earned 
over the chessboard . The last tournament 
had only one Del Val student entered, 
probably because there was next to no 
local publicity. 

Dear Editors 

I went to the Student Store today, and 
do you know what? It was closed! This is 
starting to become a typical occurence 
for me (yes. maybe I should learn what 
the hours are) , but this particular store is 
called the STUDENT Store and it is in 
the STUDENT Center with a STUDENT 
Snack Bar and a STUDENT Game 

Students are here (whether 75 over 
the summer or 1400 during the semester), 
24 hours a day and do you know what 
that means? That means the Student 
Center should be open 24 hours a day. 
(Some people really do have trouble 

The Snack Bar should definitely be 
open during dinner hours (it was not 
over the summer) since not everyone 
cares to eat at the cafeteria (one of the 
more major reasons I moved off cam- 
pus). And yes, people really do eat on 
Friday and Saturday nights. 

The Student Store should also be 
open almost constantly so that when you 
can afford to buy something in there you 
can. (Whatever happened to the 25% dis- 
count after football games and the end- 
of-the year sale like in the old store? 
They were great!) Since it is an "expand- 
ed" store it should also carry more sup- 
plies than Del Val promotional items. 

1 do realize it costs money to pay people 
to work more hours, but this is a private 
institution so I assume it is a profit- 
making organization. Anyway, the Stu- 
dent Center is there, supposedly for the 
students and if there is a major problem 
with affording it, it should have been 


(Stolen from the Dining Hall recipe file.) 

1 elephant — salt and pepper 
2 rabbits (optional) 

Cut one elephant into bite size pieces. 
This should take about two months. Add 
brown gravy to cover. Cook over kero- 
sene fire at 465° for four weeks. This will 
serve 3,800 people. If more are expected, 
two rabbits may be added, but do this 
only if necessary because most people 
do not like to find hare in their stew. 


Music News 

The 30 voice chorale is now practicing 
for various programs they will present 
throughout the year on and off campus. 
Anyone interested in singing a variety of 
music is welcome to come to the music 
room every Monday and Wednesday at 
4:15 for relaxation through music. . 
: Tickets for the senior student concerts 
of the Philadelphia Orchestra will soon 
be on sale. See Mrs. Roberts or Mr. Dur- 
ner about these special trips to the city. 

Chess Club 

■> The Chess Club will be having a candy 
and soda sale. You can pick up your 
munchies in Work 111 from 7:30 A.M. 
to 1:30 P.M. Support your Chess Club! 


There will be an important meeting 
concerning the fall tournament at 4:15 
p.m. on Monday, September 24th in the 
Work Hall lobby. All are wekome. Fresh- 
men, please attend. 

thought of before it was ever built. I also 
realize that there are the idiots on cam- 
pus who prefer to vandalize rather than 
make use of something that is supposed 
to be for them, but still, everyone else 
should not have to suffer because of a 
few (nothing wrong with a full time 
security guard). If people on campus 
don't want to work the off hours (Friday 
and Saturday nights), jjve the jobs to 
outside people. 

We know that there are a number of 
people who don't particularly care for the 
Student Center, especially when you 
have to force people, clubs, etc. to use it. 
All I'm trying to do is use it when I want, 
whenever I want. As long as there is ONE 
student who may need the services it of- 
fers it should be available for that one 


After all it is called 

the Student Center. 

Dear Upset over Student Center, 

Our suggestion to you is to go to either 
the directors of the Student Center or to 
the Student Government Committee 
that was set up for complaints about the 
Student Center. You must realize that it 
is impossible for the Student Center to be 
open 24 hours a day for security reasons 
and it's not financially possible for all the 
areas to be covered by employees for 24 
hours a day. Again, see the Student 
Government Committee if you are 
unhappy. They are the ones who can get 
something done.

A suggestion from the Ram Pages 
staff: After spending a "long, tir- 
ing day" with that "child" that you 
"couldn't wait to send off to college," 
why not treat her/him to an "expen- 
sive" dinner at one of the many 
"fine" restaurants in the center of 

SORRY! It was only a suggestion! 

Dear Aggie, 

Dear Aggie. ,^ ;, ;.:_■_ 

I am a fairly attractive girl with a boy- 
friend at home where I live. My problem 
is every time I'm in the cafeteria, or just 
walking, some guy tries to pick me up. I 
am faithful to my boyfriend but it is hard 
for me to keep telling guys no. What 
should I do? ! 

Faithfully his 

Dear Faith, * * 

I don't know what you consider faithful 
But I don't see anything wrong with go- 
ing with a few friends (guys) to a coffee-, 
house or a dance if it's just for fun . How- 
ever, if you want to remain faithful to 
him, don't let it go past that. 


Dear Readers, 

If anyone has a problem and feels that 
others may have the same, please write 
me (Dear Aggie), c/o Ram Pages, so 
you can all get your answer. 

It's Your Choice 

Every day you are called upon to 
make decisions. Among your choices is 
whether you will live safely or recklessly 
with fire. Unfortunately, some people 
choose to be reckless and either die or 
are seriously burned or cause others to 
die in campus fires. You can avoid this if 
you choose to. You can keep your life, 
your possessions and your friends. 

Your room on campus can be con* 
sidered your apartment; it is your home. 
Your residence hall can be thought of in 
terms of an apartment complex. More 
than likely, you are keeping most of your 
personal possessions in your room. When 
you are aware of fire safety, your posses- 
sions and you will be protected. 

You will be fire safe when you avoid 
fire hazards. The three most common 
causes of fire are cigarettes, appliances 
and heating elements. It would be easier 
to avoid responsibility for safety than to 
avoid hazards. But responsibility comes 
with being on your own. If you avoid 
responsibility for safety, the consequences 
for you and your friends can be tragic. 

Even if you choose to live safely, some 
of your friends may not. A fire is not 
planned ahead of time. You can plan 
ahead, however, to act quickly and safely. 

1. Know how to get out if your exit is 
blocked. Make sure you know at least 
two ways out. 

2. If there is a fire in your room, get our 
and close the door. A closed door can 
hold back the fire. 

3. If the fire is somewhere else, feel your 
room door before opening it. If your 
door is hot. do not open it. Fill air 
spaces with towels, 

4. Carry a towel to protect yourself from 
smoke inhalation Wear a coat and 
hard-soled shoes. 

5. Keep windows and doors closed so 
the fire is not circulated. 

6. Crawl if the building is smoke filled. 
There 's fresh air near the f!f)or. 

7 Do not go back. None of your posses- 
sions are worth going back for. Many 
people have died returning to a 
building on fire. 

Will you ignore safety and endanger 
yourself and others? Or. will you avoid 
the hazards that kill and injure students 
on campus? The choice is really up to

Horticulturist & Humanitarian 

Died at 71 

By LE.B. 

How many of you have hiked out past 
Lake Archer, the soccer field, and across 
the road to the greenhouses? My guess is 
that a good number of OH. students 
have! Those greenhouses, known as 
Burpee's greenhouses are located on 
Fordhook Farms, the estate of the late 
Lois Torrance Burpee. Mrs. Burpee very 
graciously leased the greenhouses to 
DVC for a very nominal fee. 

On Monday evening, September 3rd, 
Lois Torrance Burpee. 7L collapsed in 
Kennedy Airport in New York, after a 
flight back from England where she was 
visiting her sister. Mrs. Burpee, who still 
resided on Fordhook Farms, was the 
widow of David Burpee who for 55 years 
was the owner of the internationally 
known W. Atlee Burpee Co. He sold the 
company to General Foods in 1970. 

If you ever met Mrs. Burpee, you 
would know that she was a very friendly, 
simple, but concerned person and these 
aspects radiated throughout her life. 
When Mrs. Burpee met up with Pearl S 
Buck, they formed an international 
adoption agency for Amerasian children 
which they called the Welcome House in 
1949. The first headquarters of this well- 
known organization was at Fordhook 

Lois Burpee spent a lot of time in her 
gardens around Fordhook. She called 

herself "a plain garden cook," and often 
experimented with the vegetables which 
she harvested. Out of her gardening ex- 
periences became her anecdotal collec- 
tion of her recipes and gardening tips 
entitled "Lois Burpee's Gardener's Com- 
panion and Cookbook." This was pub- 
lished in 1983 by Harper and Row. 

Mrs. Burpee was also a founder and 
president of the Doylestown Preschool 
Association, a longtime member of the 
Village Improvement Association of 
Doylestown. serving on the hospital 
committee, a founder of the Bucks 
County Mental Health Society, and a 
member of the Doylestown Nature Club 
for more than 40 years and was active 
with the club in trying to establish an ar- 
boretum at the Fonthill museum property. 

Because Lois Burpee was such an ac- 
tive person in the Bucks County commu- 
nity, she received many awards for her 
charitable work, in 1979, she was hon- 
ored as Woman of the Year by the Pearl 
S. Buck Foundation. She was presented 
with the Bucks County Golden Circle 
Award in 1981 and the Humanitarian 
Award of the Central Bucks Chamber of 
Commerce in 1982. Obviously, this lead- 
ing citizen of Bucks County will be great- 
ly missed.

Subscriptions are now available for 
Villanova Theatre's 1984-85 season for

Play;, a rarely-performed classic by one 
of the masters of modern drama. James

ethics. Considered by many critics to be 
Brecht's greatest work and his most ac- 
cessible. Galileo will be directed by Lon

A Last Minute Thought 

By Joan Meyer 

Student Government sponsored a 
D.J. Dance on Saturday the 15th in 
honor of the first home football game. 
The dance was a very last minute thought 
that turned into a great idea! The local 
D.J., Ron Fiscano, played a wide range 
of songs and he also played any requests. 
The music was a little loud, but the stu- 
dents still had fun. Everyone there danced 
the night away and there was plenty of 
punch to drink when they rested before 

The night before the dance was not 
very successful. Student Government 
sponsored a coffeehouse with Glen Elliot 
the host of the show. Glen Elliot had an 
excellent voice except each song sound- 
ed the same. He was not a very good 
entertainer because his songs had the 
tendency to put the audience to sleep. 
The small audience did enjoy the 
delicious donuts. 

I do want to thank Student Govern- 
ment for providing the student body with 
coffeehouses and dances. They always 
make the weekend interesting and fun!

Ride" — it's a lot of fun. 

The ride starts at 10:00 from the East

No Matter ... 
What Happens . • . 

By L.E.B. 

Eastern Europe ... at the turn of the 
century in a town with gravel streets, out- 
side markets and the Jewish religion, in a 
time where women were forbidden to 
learn, there was YENTL. 

Barbara Streisand, the director, actress 
and dreamer of YENTL. carried the part 
of a woman who wanted to and succeed- 
ed in learning. She changed her identity 
to a man and studied under a rabbi. Her 
(or should 1 say his) best friend, Avigdar, 
was a man who was engaged to a "beau- 
tiful" woman who was forbidden to marry 
him. Yentl married Hadass. Avigdar's 
forbidden fiance, and this began a humor- 
ous yet beautiful relationship. 

In the end, Avigdar got Hadass, and 
Yentl. she got her freedom — her free- 
dom from Hadass aiui her freedom to 
study and to be Yentl "No matter what 
happens, it can't be the same anymore." 

The soundtrack is one of the best that 
Ms. Streisand has come up with yet. She 
picks you up in the beginning and doesn't 
let you down in the end. If you are a fan. 
this movie and soundtrack is for you. 

Thanks goes to social house who spon- 
sored this movie last week. Keep it up. 
My only complaint is about the audience. 
If you are going to be getting up in the 
middle of the movie, sit in the back. 
About five people in front of me kept go- 
ing out and coming back in. Next time, 
either sit still or sit in the back! 



Trade Rautins to Indiana 

By Duke Blessing 

The Philadelphia 75ers traded forward 
Leo Raiitiiis. their first round pick in the 
U)83 draft, to the Indiana Pacers for 
future considerations.

Soccer Team 
Booted by Scranton 11-1

The Delaware Valley College soccer 
team opened their 1984 season last Sat- 
urday afternoon against perennial nemesis 
Scranton University. The 11-1 final score 
is an indication that once again. Scranton 
is a Division III national powerhouse 

In the first half, the Aggies managed to 
send four shots just wide of the posts 
while Scranton connected on only three 

The second half was a different story 
as Scranton blasted the Aggies defense 
for eight goals to finish up the 11-1

Dear Editors 

Filthy Dorms 
+ Angry Students = Trouble 

We all can figure out what this is and 
we all want something done about it Yes, 
filthy dorms (bathrooms and halls) are 
what we angry students are faced with 
and we're not going to take it any more. 

As students at Del Val living here for 
about eight months of our year we know 
that we are entitled to a cleaner living 
area. I live in Goldman and heard many 
guys complaining about the grotesque 
bathrooms and hallways we are faced 
with day in and day out: mold and soap 
scum in the showers, dirty sinks and stalls, 
and tile that has no shine because it is 
covered with soap, toothpaste, and 
overall scum. We know that it's the 
students who cause this but if the 
janitorial service, our "screwed up" ser- 
vice master, will leave our janitors in their 
dorms to do their job. maybe they could 
get something done. I've also heard 
numerous complaints from Berkowitz 
girls and the guys in Samuel. 

As a student at Del Val, \ can't make 
enough complaints along with other stu- 
(.lents. I nwself have been to Mr. Zenkos 
f)ffice numerous times complaining, and 
little or nothing has improved. 1 came 
back to (joldman because it was one of 
the cleanest dorms on campus. I could 
eat off the shower floor last year it was so 
clean, now one can't even walk on it. or 
fall whatever comes first 

My next step is to higher authorities 
unless something is done. DONE RIGHT. 
don't feel that these are the healthiest of 
conditions to live with it much longer. 

F)isgusted Student.

Out From Under 
The Editors* Desk: 

It has come to our attention that as the 
semester continues, the mess in the cafe- 
teria grows People let foot lay on the 
table and even worse, their whole tray. 
It's time to straighten up your act. Every- 
one should be old enough and responsible 
enough to take up their trays and not 
leave food on the table. A lot of people 
have to eat in the cafeteria so it is time to 
respect others It would be nice to eat in 
a clean dining hall for once

Another problem that has come to my 
attention is a problem with collecting 
meal numbers at lunch and dinner. If the 
cafeteria management wants a standard 
set of rules as far as collecting everyone's 
numbers, they should take the number 
of every single person who enters the 
cafe without exception. Many times I've 
seen people allowed to pass through 
without their cards. Yet some of my 
friends were not allowed in without their 
cards. Maybe they weren't friertdly 
enough for the meal number taker or 
maybe it's because they are females and 
not males No matter what, a definite 
standard should be set with no excep- 
tiotis After all. it's only fair to everyone.

him know, if you aren't tell him to leave

New Dairy Instructor 

Mr. Jerry Myers 

By Bill Rein 

We have a new addition to our faculty 
this year. He is Mr. Jerry Myers, who has 
joined the Dairy Husbandry Department. 
You can find him either teaching Dairy 
Cattle Judging and Evaluation courses, 
or managing operations down at the Dairy 

Ag majors surely remember from fresh- 
man Animal Science that DVC raises 
three dairy cattle breeds: Holstein. Brown 
Swiss, and Ayrshire. Mr. Myers has han- 
dled all three. He hails from Maryland, 
where he was born and raised on his 
parents' Holstein dairy farm. At the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, he earned a Bachelor 
of Science degree in Agriculture and Ex- 
tension Education. His credentials don't 
stop there. A full-fledged dairy man. he 
has currently completed his internship 

This causes me to be late for class every

Dear Dreamer?, ^ ^ • / * 

If you know that she gets up every 
night around 3:17 it must mean she 
wakes you up. Just get out of bed and 
turn the alarm on behind her. Sleep 
walking is a result of some type of stress, 
being away at school, or just worrying 
about the first group of exams could be 
the reason. In time she should learn, to 
relax and the walking will stop. In the 
meantime you could also try hiding the

for an MA. in International Administra- 
tion. This included work with the Brown 
Swiss Dairy Cattle Association — in no 
other place but Columbia. South Ameri- 
ca. A fully international background 
would not be complete without some agri- 
cultural knowledge from Norway, where 
Mr. Myers had spent six months with tht: 
International 4-H Youth Exchange. Back 
in the U.S.A.. he covered all Northeast 
States to complete his internship, which f- 
included working with the Ayrshire Dafry'^' 
breed. Mr. Myers was well on his wav to 
a job with DVC! :; ■ ; ; 

What does he have to say about Dela- 
ware Valley College? Mr. Myers says h«? 
chose our school mostly because he | 
"heard of a program offering hands-on 
experience, instead of just traditional 
classroom lecture." More specifically. \w 
enjoys "the nice combination of teaching, 
traveling with the judging team, and 
working with the cattle."

Last Monday, the Lady Aggies faced 
Cedar Crest for the third match of the 
season. The girls came out strong and 
. won the match in three games straight. 
The scores were 15-12, 15-2. and 15-5. 
The win made the girls' record 1-2. 

On Saturday, the team traveled to FDU 
for the first tournament of the season. 
Eight teams competed. Our first game 
was against Marywood College. In a tour- 
]. nament. the matches are played best two 
■ out of three games. Marywood gave the 
girls a great fight but the Aggies came out 
on top. The scores were 18-16 and 
17-15. Next. Del Val faced FDU, It was 
an easy game, and the girls won 15-12 
and 15-0. The final game in the prelimi- 
narys was against Muhlenberg, a team 
which the Aggies face in our regular sea- 
son. They were strong but the girls lost 
the match. 14-16 and 10-15. putting Del 
Val second in the finals. The first game 
was against Moravian . The girls were 
tired and lost the match 12-15 and 5-15 
placing third in the tournament. Coach 
Chivalette was very pleased with how 
the girls played. Everyone did a fine job, 
Chris LeFevre and Sheryl Henry lead in 
attacks. Freshman Sharon Chapman 
also played a nice game. Micheic Heffner 
and Vicki Keener leacFfin sets and Marion 
Alberici helped out everywhere. The girls 
should be happy where they ended up. 

The girls' next home game is on Satur- 
day at 1:30 against Wilkes. Come out 
and cheer!

Lead Aggies 

Over Crusaders 

By Duke Blessing 

The Delaware Valley College gridders 
took a giant step in their hopes of recap- 
turing the Middle Atlantic Conference 
championship by defeating a talented Sus- 
quehanna squad on Parents' Day by the 
score of 1.3-10. 

Dan Glowatski opened the scoring 
when he caught a 20-yard touchdown 
pass from Gary Kemberling (6-16-104 
yards) in the first quarter. 

The Crusaders came back with ten se- 
cond quarter points on a Kevin Gorm- 
Icy l-yard touchdown run and a Todd 
McCarthy 30-yard field goal. 

The third quarter was a defensive battle 
with lx)th teams looking strong, especially 
against the run. 

Finally, in the fourth quarter. Joe Ra- 
daszewski gave the Aggies the break they 
needed when he picked off a Jim Wisse 
pass and returned it 44 yards to give the 
Aggies a lead they never relinquished. 

Nick Russo had a superb game for the 
Aggies as he rushed .% times for 157 
yards. He also hauled in a Kemberling 
pass for 41 yards. 

The entire Delaware Valley team was 
t'Xtremelu fired up for the length of the 
game. When the Aggies defense was on 
the fiekl. the players on the sideline 
stood up and shouted "defense" clap 
■clap, "defense" clap - clap. This is the 
tvpe of enthusiasm the Aggies need to 
sustain tomorrow (at Moravian) and for 
the ivinaindei of the season 

Thi' intangible aspect of football is often 
underestimated but in this rase the Ag- 
gies know th«' meaning of

By Ken McDaid 

DVC raised its overall record to 7-0 
(5-0 MAC) last Saturday by dominating 
a quadrangular meet involving Moravian. 
Widener. and Lebanon Valley College. 
The Harriers ran their best team race of 
the season as only 1:21 separated run- 
ners one through five from DVC. This 
strong team effort helped DVC cruise 
past Widener 16-46. Lebanon Valley 
20-42. and Moravian 23-36. Leading 
the way for Del Val were Ken McDaid 
and Tom Reynolds who finished 3rd and 
4th respectively with times of 27:01 and 
27:06. Reynolds had to outduel a runner 
from Moravian at the tape to save his 4th 
place finish. Next for DVC were Dave 
Spotts and Al Krouse who clocked in 6th 
and 7th places. The stars of the meet, 
however, were sophomores Don Billet 
and John Thomson who finished 9th 
and lOth overall and drastically closed 
the gap between themselves and the DVC 
front four. Overall. DVC had six of the 
top ten finishing places Next up for the 
Harriers are Drexel. Philadelphia Textile. 
Philadelphia Pharmacy, and Swarthmore 
tomorrow at Swarthmore.

The women's cross country team had 
an away dual meet which was held at 
Moravian College on Saturday. Septem- 
ber 22nd. Our girls ran against giHs from 
Lebanon Valley College and Moravian 
College. DVC scored 25 points defeating 
L.ebanoti Valley with a score of M points. 
Moravian College defeated DVC with a 
score of 21 points against 33 points. This 
puts our girls at a score of two wins and 
one loss for this season so far, Our next 
meet will be a home meet held Saturday. 
October 6th against Scranton Come

Succumb to 49er's 21-9 

By Duke Blessing 

To think that there were actually a 
group of people out in football land this 
vear who thought the Philadelphia Eagles 
stood a chance of playing .500 football in 
1984 is as ridiculous as believing that 
Mondale and "that woman" stand the 
slightest chance to defeat Ronald and 
George in November. 

This ineffectual collection of brawn 
athletes has clustered together to give a 
new meaning to the word "stillborn." 

The Joe Montana-less 49er's domi- 
nated both offensively and defensively. 
Matt Cavanaugh threw against an invisi- 
ble like Eagles secondary for 252 yards 
and three touchdowns. Wendell Tyler 
rushed through and around the defensive 
line for 113 yards on 21 carries. 

Kicker Paul McFadden accounted for 
all the Eagles points with three field goals 
as the rushing game could only muster 
72 yards Ron "Jaws" Jaworski is not to 
blame for this one due to the fact that 
Eagle receivers dropped nine passes. 

Watching the Eagles play last week kind 
of reminded me what it must have been 
like to be a New York Giants fan for so 

There is one common bond between 
old Giants fans, present Eagle fans, and 
supporters or Walter and his woman 
friend — even though we are cheering 
for guaranteed losers, we must play out 
the string because some day things will 
get better!

By E.D. Wengryn 

Frostbit fingers, numb noses, and glassy 
eyes. If you remember these feelings you 
must have been up all night making your 
homecoming floats and spirit cars. Not to 
worry, just one more night and the pa- 
rade will be here. For many homecoming 
is more than just two nights of work The 
Alumni Office works for months on plan- 
ning the return of DVC graduates. (Yes. 
they are living proof that life goes on after 
DVC or NFS,) Besides the floats many 
clubs work on fund-raisers for homecom- 
ing football game sales. The Floral Society 
paints its pumpkins, the Horticulture Club 
is pressing cider, and A. P.O. was making 
chocolates all week long, in addition to 
their creative expressions of toilet paper 
on wheels (called a float) . 

To alumni, homecoming is more than 
a parade through Doylestown and a foot- 
ball game. To alumni, homecoming is 
just that, coming home. To them, just 
like to the students now. DVC was their 
home And now they return to see the 
old place, the new buildings, and good 
friends of days gone by. Homecoming is 
for memories, for students, and alumni 
and should not be missed by anyone, if 
you don't help a club, go to the parade, 
meet alumni, and get ready for the home- 
coming dance. What is a better way to 
end a week of no sleep as we celebrate 
the return of those that have gone before 
us. For to celebrate is to make memories 
and these times will be remembered on 
the day when you as a graduate will 
return on homecoming.

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

Something is going on that deserves 
some attention: the public abuse and 
humiliation of ladies on campus by a 
group of DVC "athletes" (I use the term 
loosely) . An athlete at this level of com- 
petition should be both a scholar and a 
gentleman! By scholar I simply mean that 
they should be here to leam and make 
an attempt to do so. A gentleman re^Dects 
the rights and feelings of others. Animals 
react on instinct, not people! Thursday 
night's incident (September 27) in the 
dining hall reminded me of a pack of 
dogs reacting to a bitch in heat! 

It is bad enough that we must witness 
what goes on on campus; but I am em- 
barassed to be a pwirt of an athletic depart- 
ment that would send these "athletes" 
(again, 1 use the term loosely) off campus 
to represent our school all over the state 
and beyond. 

I am not going to point the finger at 
anyone (I think we all know who I'm talk- 
ing about) , but I would like to say that I 
am not speaking of the football team. Al- 
though their ideas of fun are often different 
from ours, and although they do tend to 
get carried away at times, they do not 
make a habit of publicly abusing ladies 
nor causing scenes in the dining hall. 1 
also feel confident that, under the leader- 
ship of coach Al Wilson, they act like 
gentlemen when they leave our school to 
represent us. 

I realize that everyone has the right to 
be here, but when they have fun at the 
exjjense of others, then they are infring- 
ing on the rights of others and should be 
stopped. I do not think that the integrity 
of our athletic department must be sacri 
ficed in order to win a few games! How 
far will this go? What ever happened to 
winning not being the most important 
part of the game? 

I do not know what can be done about 
this, but thought that some attention 
should be focused on it. I know that when 
my dog misbehaves he gets smacked 
with a newspaper. I do not think that 
would work in this case.

Out From Under 
The Editors' Desk: 

We certainly hope that everyone is ex- 
cited for another great Homecoming 
Weekend and are all ready to get involved 
as this year proves to be better than ever. 
The Ram Pages staff has worked quite 
hard to put out this special edition and 
sincerely hop>e that everyone enjoys it as 
well as the entire Homecoming Weekend. 
Paul and 1 extend our thanks and con- 
gratulations to the Ram Pages staff for 
the success of this special edition.

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

As most of us have noticed, this cam- 
pus is ridiculous on weekends! I wonder 
if the circus is looking for recruits! I know 
for a fact that vandalism is no longer a 
thing of the past. It seems as if no dorm is 
safe from these immature, obnoxious 
people who insist on wrecking things. Not 
only is vandalism a problem, but either 
people have become hard of hearing or 
they just love to yell. There's no reason 
for the excess noise that has been disturb- 
ing my dorm as well as others. Since 
when do radios have to be at full blast to 
enjoy them? Unless some people start 
growing up or enough people tell these 
so called adults to shape up, nothing is 
going to change. I don't know if everyone 
realizes this, but whatever dorm damage 
is done, unless the vandal is identified, 
the dorm pays for it. Since most of the 
damage done is done by guys, I think its 
time we girls pulled together to straighten 
this mess out. Remember — nothing will 
change until we want it to.

After talking with Mr. Moyer and Mr.

Change Machine Problems 
Have They Been Resolved? 

By Bill Rein 

There have been consistent complaints 
about the conditions of the college laun- 
dry rooms and the lone change machine. 
By now, probably everyone has heard 
something like, "What happened to the 
Ulman basement laundry?" . . . "There 
are never enough working dfyers." . . . 
"The only time everybody has room in 
their schedules to do laundry is the only 
time that I can do laundry!" These words 
are usually followed by ". . . and when 
you need change for wash, you go all 
the way to the Student Center, and the 
change machine is broken." 

In our usual investigative style. Ram 
Pages decided to look into the situation, 
and find what was on the other side of 
the coin. 

In an interview with Student Services 
Dean Lionel Adelson, I thought we'd get 
the facts. This apparently had been the 
first time the situation had been presented 
to him. Mr. Adelson was immediately on 
the phone. 

First, the dean put a call into Mainte- 
nance. We learned that the Ulman base- 
ment lights were apparently pulled down 
from the ceiling by some students; but 
they now were in full operation. Could 
this have caused some on campus to think 
DVC consisted of only one laundry 
room — of only six washers and six dryers 
— under Segal Hall? Maybe. Anyway. 
it's now safe to go down and do your 
wash in the wee hours of the morning, 
and beat the rush! 

But is it? Maintenance had said that Ul- 
man was in full operation. Surely they 
did not mean that all washers and dryers 
were in order. Trying to keep well in- 
formed of this situation was indeed diffi- 
cult. In reading the Student Government 
Minutes of that same Monday, one would 
find different news. Under the heading 
"Old Business," next to a frowning face, 
was the note: "The laundry room in Ul- 
man Hall is still a disgrace . . . and I am 
Informed that three dryers were broken 
. . ." Yes, as of Monday, a week later, 
there were still at least two dryers with 
"Out of Order" signs on them. It seems 
that no one knows the problem exists; 
please report this type of problem to Resi- 
dences Life! Maybe some action will be 

Ignoring the fact that there are bound 
to be broken machines, the need for even 
more laundry machines was addressed. 
Dean Adelson explained that, "When 
the Student Center was built last year. 

The Alumni Office & 
The Alumni Association 

By Jamie Beck 

The Alumni Office sponsors Homec- 
coming and a lot more . They coordinate 
and publish Green and Gold Horizons 
sent to all the Alumni. They sponsor 
scholarships to freshmen . This year they 
sponsored two such scholarships, each 
for fifteen hundred dollars. The Alumni 
attend "College Night" to represent the 

The Alumni Association donates mon- 
ey, shrubery, rooms of buildings, etc. 
They also give presents to graduating 
seniors. This year they gave the seniors a 
wallet-size copy of their diploma. 

The office has six thousand known ad- 
dresses for alumni of the college. The 
alumni are from 49 out of 50 states and 
20 foreign countries. The Association 
has 40 members and five student repre- 
sentatives. They do activities together. 
Each year, they contribute $150,000 to 
200,0(X) both individually and as a group. 

Mr. Trainer and Dr. Feldstein travel to 
viat alumni in various F>arts of the country. 
They have visited Chicago, Dallas, and 
Los Angeles, where they have DVC alum- 
nus clubs. These clubs procure money 
for the college. This November, Dr. Feld- 
stein will be going to Florida to visit alum- 
ni living there . 

more room was provided by Segal Hall. 
We decided that this provided an oppor- 
tunity for another laundry room whteh 
would double our capacity." And you 
thought 12 washers and 12 dryers (when 
working) was not enough for our school? 

What about the ongoing change ma- 
chine hassles? Dean Adelson called Mr. 
Decker, whose responsibilities in the Stu- 
dent Center include all vending machines 
contained within its walls. 

We learned that, once again, the 
change machine "broke down" — yet, 
this time it was over the weekend, and it 
had just been "debugged" Friday! Why 
does it keep breaking down? This change 
machine has a modern fail-safe mechan- 
ism, which automatically shuts it down — 
when someone tries to get something for 
nothing. It is therefore never really 
"broken," just keeping us from being 
"ripped off." 

Another look at the old Student Gov- 
ernment Minutes yielded a wealth of in- 
formation pertaining to how long this has 
been going on. In the September 17 Min- 
utes, under the "Good of the Order" 
heading, it is stated that: "It seems that 
the change machine in the Student Center 
is broken down too often ..." Dean Adel- 
son explained that, "the change machine 
belongs to the company providing most, . 
if not all, vending machines on campus 
— Blue Ribbon . If anyone tries to use a 
bogus bill, it electronically shuts down." It 
was starting to concern the school that 
"Blue Ribbon may have to pull it because 
they keep coming out to repair it." At this 
time. Blue Ribbon had not yet complained 
about it, he said. 

In fact. Blue Ribbon provided us with 
a change machine as a sort of "favor," 
because we needed one last year to re- 
place the much-abused "antique" owned 
by the Student Government, noted Mr, 
Adelson. Old habits never really die; the 
old one was quickly rolled away after it 
accepted a xerox of a dollar bill! " 

"We'd like to get another change ma- : 
chine," concluded the dean; but the ques- 
tion remained: would a more convenient 
yet unsupervised machine be "challenged" 
by one student to the detriment of the 
entire campus? 

Well, the answer to that question may 
have come from the latest Student Gov- 
ernment meeting. Under the heading 
"New Business" the minutes explain that, 
"We have a NEW change machine on 
the way. Student Government will own 
and operate it. Its location will be in the : 
security office. Anyone caught tamper- 
ing with this machine will suffer the conse- 
quences. We will be watching it very close- 
ly. Let's not abuse this "convenience!" 

Mr. Trainer says, "The main purpose 
of the Alumni Association and the Alum- 
ni Office is to promote friendship and 
goodwill among the alumni but more im- 
portantly provide support for the Alma 
Mater." He also wants the office to be a 
fundraising as well as a friendraising place.

The professor is my quizmaster. 

1 shall not flunk. 
He maketh me to enter the

He leadeth me to an alternate seat. 
He restoreth my fears. 
He leadeth me into a deep problem 

for the grade's sake. 
Yea, though I know not the answers 

to the question. 
The class average comforts me. 
I prepare my answers before me 

in the presence of my proctors. 
He anointeth my head with figures. 

My time runneth out. 
Surely grades and bluebooks will folbw me 

all the days of my life. 
And I will dwell in this university forever.

At the tender age of fourteen Ernest 
Pumcll came to work as a janitor at Dela- 
ware Valley College (then known as the 
National Farni School) in 1910. Although 
his family home is in Baltimore, he and 
another man left to find work. Del Val 
hasn't been the same since. 

Emcst was bom May 10, 1895. He was 
the sixth of six children and reared in a 
Methodist environment. The love of na- 
ture has always been with him and even 
after eighty-nine years he still breeds tropi- 
cal fish and parakeets. 

Mr, Purncll's earliest experiences here 
on campus included not only janitorial 
responsibilities but chauffer duties for Del 
Val's founder. Rabbi Joseph Krauskopf . 
"Dr. Rabbi" as he is remembered, always 

brings fond memories to this local college

papers hang proudly in his room. 

At one point, Ernest was moonlighting 
in a restaurant near the college to help 
pay for car expenses. One night. Presi-

Roosevelt was so taken by Ernest that he

When asked how the studente and fac- 
ulty of today are different from those in 
the school's beginnings, it was made quite 
clear that attitudes have changed. "In the 
Farm School people were like brothers, 
but today many think they are higher up 
and better people — not equals." 

"The great man who put us on this 
earth didn't want people to be different 
from each other — just equal . . . there is 
bad in all races, what religion doesn't 
matter — we were given brains to be the 
best we can and to be smart enough to 
love our neighbors." Why can't people 
see the truth? 

If you don't know where to find Mr. 
Pumell, all you need to do is check out 
the second floor of the Alumni House. Er-

nity, stop and have a chat . . . you won't 
be sorry you did!

The Great? Debate 

By E.D. Wengryn 

On Sunday night President Ronald 
Reagan and candidate Walter Mondale 
went head to head in the first of their two 
televised debates. Both candidates started 
off nervously, but it was Mr. Mondale 
who got over it first. To many, Mondale's 
performance was a surprise, as President 
Reagan did not shape up until about half 
way through the debate. He was nervous, 
stuttering, and ill at ease up to that point. 
Mr. Mondale took advantage of the Pres- 
ident's manner as he operated smoothly 
and easily, using the time to make his 
points, while the President worked on try- 
ing to Improve his style. 

The candkiates were asked a series of 
domestic questions on proposed budgets 
and deficit reduction; it was here where 
the Presidetit looked strong as he prom- 
ised that he will "never" seek to cut Social 
Security benefits (though he did in 1981 
want a 25% cut that the Congress refused 
to pass, as Mr. Mondale later pointed 
out, showing himself as the stronger can- 
didate.) The other good point of President 
Reagan was Mondale's proposed tax in- 
creases. Mondale was again showing him- 
self as the stronger candidate by saying it 
was a plan, and one that would work to 
reduce the deficits, that Mr. Reagan 
believes will disappear like magic. Mon- 
dale was ageiin stronger than the President 
when it came to the closing statements. 
Are we better off now than we were four 
years ago? Mr. Mondale took that ques- 
tion further by asking about our future: 
Will we be better off in the upcoming 
years, and what future will it leave for 
our children? To many is was clear that 
Walter Mondale won the debate. Whether 
it helps his campaign only time will tell, 
along with the Bush - Ferraro debate on 

West Virginia, Boston, and Washington 
DC, as well as kx:al florets from Reading, 
Pa. and Somerset, N.J. The creations 
designed were truly amazing, some stand- 
ing three feet tall. Others were as small as 
a shoe. The designers create arrange- 
ments for two hour stretches, take half 
hour breaks, and then return again. The 
themes for most of the work dealt with 
Christmas, as the Trade Fair deals with 
selling Christmas items, such as con- 
tainers, dishes, props, candles, and 
other supplies. Other events include door 
decorations; this year a DVC team of 
students won first place for their door 
design, and that was done competing 
against professional floral designers. 
Once again, congratulations to all, and 
thanks to the designers for some A-Day

Dear Aggie, 

Dear Aggie, 

What do you do when people who 
you don't do anything wrong to stick 
their noses up at you? And what do you 
do when they act disgusted at you when 
you are in their presence? Should I let 
this behavior bother me? 

I know that you can't be friends to 
everyone and have them all like you 
back, but it hurts when people treat me 
this way. Do you think I'm just being self- 
conscious about this? Aggie, tell me what 
1 can do. 


Hurt by Ignorance 

Dear Hurt by Ignorance, , . . . 

If someone misunderstands you or 
your personality due to a physical prob- 
lem, then you are hurt by ignorance. In 
your letter I received no information 
along this line so I will assume that you 
have no such problem. What is hurting 
your feelings is the lack of adultness in 
these other jDeople. Some people do not 
feel comfortable with others unless they 
find a fault in the other (i.e. he has a big 
nose), once people find a fault they can 
usually get along fine. But when some- 
pne has no visible fault, people react by 
being or playing "I am better than you," 
thus the snobby attitudes. Their per- 
sonality feel threatened because of their 
own insecurities. If these so called friends 
persist in treating you so, look for new 
ones, their opinion is not the final

An Interview with History

Dear Aggie, 

After being hurt several times by mem- 
bers of the opposite sex, I am very hesi- 
tant not only in asking girls out, but just 
general conversation feels somewhat un- 
comfortable. My problem is that I met a 
girl in the beginning of the year that I 
could really fall for but because of my 
feelings towards girls now, I've only talked 
to her once. I'd like to ask her out but am 
afraid of being hurt. What do I do? 


Dear Bashful, 

Life is a game and full of risks. And it is 
better to have loved and lost than to 
never have loved at all. All of this may 
sound corny but it is true. You have taken 
your inner pain and started to use it as an 
excuse for not seeing or asking girls out. 
My suggestion to you is A) ask her out 
yourself, tell her you like her, and go 
from there or B) talk to some of her 
friends and get together with her through 
channels. In most cases, plan A works 
best. And remember no is only a two let- 
ter word.

Dr. Elson is a part-time faculty member 
who works in the chemistry department. 
He helps tutor the freshmen in chemis- 
try. He has been teaching at the college 
since 1946. 

Dr. Elson is very much a part of the 
college. He attended the old school (Na- 
tional Farm School) . After attending the 
old school, he went to Rutgers University 
to major in science. After graduating, he 
worked for the U.S. Department of Agri- 
culture until 1943. He then entered the 
Navy to become a full lieutenant. When 
the war was over, Dr. Elson came back 
to the college to teach. He came back to 
help the old school transfer over to what 
we know as Del Val. 

Dr. Elson has seen many changes in his 
lifetime. When asked what was the biggest 
difference between the old school and 
the college his response was; "Students 
now are not required to do physical 
work." In the days of the old school, one 
half of the students would work on the 
farm full time and the other half would 
go to school. Then after six weeks, the 
students would switch jobs. All of the stu- 
dents were required to work in each area 
of the farm. They only had one month 
off from class. The students would work 
during the summer months on the farm. 
Graduation was in late March, so the stu- 
dents could be hired in time for the spring 

Dr. Elson has seen many changes in 
agriculture. When he was in school, they 
used hand labor methods. Today, agri- 
culture has become modern and more 
technical. There is now more for the stu- 
dents to leam. 

Dr. Elson has years of experience and 
he is very happy to share them with the 
students. He will continue to teach the 
students. Dr. Elson is a big part of Del 
Val's future and history. As he says, "An 
interview with me, is an interview with 
h'*^ory." Dr. Elson will always be a legend 
in his own time! 


On Wednesday, October 3, students 
had the opportunity to be caricatured in 
the Student Center Lobby. There was a 
choice of cither a Joe Aronson basic black 
and white fek tip on transparency, or your 
profile could be sketched and then water- 
colored with a miniature body attached! 

For one dollar you could cither wait in 
a line for the color sketch, or settle for a 
bare bones black and white profile. Most 
who offered their best sides to the artists 
seemed to prefer the former, which was 
of course much more detailed for the 
money. Some who attended mentioned 
^hat last year's artists seemed to offer a litr 
tie more. Overall, everyone was none- 
theless pleased. 

"Landscaping for Wildlife" 
• ; Marvin Clymcr 

Victor, Victoria 

The highly entertaining movie, i/ktor, 
Victoria played for free in the All-Purpose 
Room last Thursday night. From the looks 
of the small crowd who showed up, either 
people are finding the seating too uncom- 
fortable to sit through another movie, or 
they've already seen it, or they don't know 
a bargain! 

A Blake Edwards movie, Victor, Vic- 
toria had its terrific moments of comedy. 
That doesn't teO the whole story, however. 
The film had a good story, good acting, 
and real life feeling. 

The story begins in 1934; Paris. Victoria 
Grant (Julie Andrews) is a British singer 
with an opera-quality voice that shatters 
champagne glasses Ella Fitzgerald-style. 
She is actually starving; she meets Car- 
roll Todd (Robert Preston) , a gay enter- 
tainer recently thrown out of a nightclub 
for causing a riot. "Toddy" gets here to 
try a different approach after Victoria, 
wearing some dry men's clothing, punches 
out his ex-boyfriend. Her entertainment 
career takes off as he plays a man, Victor 
(a.k.a. Count Gradzin^y of Poland) play- 
ing a woman! 

Difficulties arise when she meets King 
Marshall (James Gamer) who finds her 
(him) too good to be true. Both Victoria 
and Marshall fall in love, but Marshall 
doesn't like people thinking he's gay for 
loving a man; and Victoria begins to ex- 
perience trouble covering up her feelings 
as a woman — losing her identity in a 
"crazy world." 

The serious backdrop is covered with 
much lighter feeling than this suggests. 
Alex Karras plays King Marshall's body- 
guard who blunders through the movie 
getting less respect than "King" himself. 
King's dipsy blonde ex -girlfriend also gets 
no respect — and doesn't forget it when 
he actually puts soap in her mouth and 
ships her back to America! Also, if you've 
ever seen a Pink Panther movie you can- 
not help but catch a Jacques Clouseau- 
type private investigator hired to find out 
if Victor is really a woman. 

The best, most entertaining scene, 
however, is probably at the end of the 
movie. Toddy (Robert Preston) substi- 
tutes for Victor as Victoria — playing a 
woman with the grace and womanly 
beauty of a rhinocerous!

Location The Ravei 

On the right hand side 
as \^ou enter New Hope 

To celebrate the birthday of Ram Page'. 
illustrious co-editor, Leslie Blatt, this re 
porter decided to treat her to real food 
Upon our arrival and being seated at ou 
table, a night of fun and food began. 

The staff of the Raven take their worl 
very seriously. Besides food, atmosphere 
is of the utmost consideration. Though 
looking like a motel on the outside, a< 
you enter you are pushed through time 
to a late 18th century plush sitting room 
— done in dark woods and red materials. 
The dining room, small, (reservations 
are suggested) yet elegant, looks out over 
a brick terrace and garden. The menu 
(handwritten on a clipboard) is placed by 
the table while your drinks are being 
made. Leslie started with spinach salad 
and moved to Australian Pork with apri- 
cots and ended with cheesecake (with 
hazelnut crust) and cranberry topping. I 
started with tomato dill soup and moved 
on to Veal Chop with Sweetbreads Dijon 
and ended with brandied strawberries 
with chocolate and vanilla cream. Both 
meals were served with glazed carrots, 
buttered zuccini, boiled red potatoes, 
and fresh-baked bread. As the food was 
served and the sun set, the lamps on the 
tables were lighted and the house lights 
dimmed while outside the garden lights 
created a definitely romantic atmc»phere! 
The price of dinner was under $50.00 
with tip; the place is highly recommend- 
ed, just avoid the bar and don't laugh at 
too many of the other customers. And, if 
I remember corr«:tly, didn't you people 
have ice aeam sundaes that night? (a 
mild revenge). 


On Friday, October 26. Alpha Phi 
Ome^ is going to give everyone a chance 
to make some money, with an old-fash- 
ioned scavenger hunt beginning at 8:00 
and ending when the first complete lists 
are in. There are two groups, individual 
and team /club. A $5.00 entrance fee 
will be charged for clubs (teams of four 
people) arid $1.00 entrance fee for indi- 
viduals. The monies will then be split 
50/50 among the winners; kx>k for details 
or sign ups and rules coming in Ram 
Pages. The more who enter the more 
money to win.

Aggie Wrestlers 
Streak to the Top 

By Dan Smoker 

With 38 straight dual meet victories, 
setting a Division III record, the Aggies* 
wrestling team outlook is bright for the 
84-85 season. DVC took second place 
last year with a record of si 2-0, missing 
first place in the overall points total by V2 
point to Lycoming College. 

Coach Bob Marshall, who has been with 
DVC for 10 years, has an impressive 
128-24 record. "We didn't win the MAC 
last year because we didn't have wrestlers 
at the right weight." said Marshall. "This 
year we're pretty inexperienced, and I 
can see the possibility of six freshmen in 
the lineup." 

Members by Weight 

118: Freshman, Tim Zacngle looks to 
have the starting spot. Fighting 
Zaengle for his position are Tim 
Fitzgerald and Dave Gibson. 

126: Dan Canale, a returning Ail-Ameri- 
can and MAC champion. 

134: Steve Canale. who together with 
his twin brother Dan combined their 
records last year for an impressive 
31-1 total. 

142: Senior. Kevin Stout who has plenty 
of competition at his weight from 
Dan Porter. Brad Wise, and fresh- 
man Loren Richter. This will be 
Stout's first varsity starting season. 

150: Senior Brad Hershey. also with his 
first varsity starting season, has 
pressure from junior Bob Ekhelm 
and freshman Tracy Snyder. 

158: Freshman Tom Long and junior 
and Drew Brophy are battling it out. but 
167: it looks like Long will wrestle at 158 
and Brophy at 167. Other compe- 
tition at 158 could be senior Fred 
Jones or T. Snyder. 

177: Sophomore Bob Branch looks to 
be in command of this slot. 

190: Junior Dan DePretis has to look for 
plenty of competition from fresh- 
man Vince Bedesem. 

HWT: Sophomores Shawn McGrath 
and Chuck Hieber look to be doing the 
heavyweight honors this year again . Mc- 
Grath and Hieber shared the spot last 
year, but they have some competition 
coming their way from freshmen Len 
Resato and Steve Redichek. who finished 
fifth in the State High School Champion- 
ships last year. 

"Some major factors could be the loss 
of Tony Tarsi (134), Troy Marshall (142). 
Mark Sand (150), and Bruce Stajnrajh 
(158),' commented Marshall. "Lycom- 
ing has a lot of wrestlers back and they 
look strong. Gettysburg, Ursinus, and 
Moravian also look pretty good this year, 
but I'm looking forward to strong perfor- 
mances from the Canale brothers. Stout, 
and Hershey."

. -Padres Complete 
Three Game Comeback 
Against Cubs 

By Duke Blessing 

After losing the first two games in Chi- 
cago and being outscored 17-2 in the 
process, the San Diego Padres became 
the first National League team to over* 
come a 2-0 deficit in the championship 
series by storming back to win three straight 
at their Jack Murphy Stadium home. 

In game five. Leon Durham hit a two-; 
run homer and Jody Davis added a solo 
shot to give the Cubs a 3-0 lead, a margin 
that would last until the sixth.^;./^ 

Probable National League Cy Young 
Winner Rick Sutcliffe looked dominating 
until the sixth inning when, egged on by 
the awesome ear-piercing power of the 
home crowd , the Padres scored two runs 
in the inning and then erupted for four 
more in the seventh to snatch a 6-3 vic- 
tory and win their first National League 

Steve Garvey was named M.V.P. for 
the Championship Series as he batted 
.400 (8-20) including four hits and a 
game winning homer in game four. Tony 
Gwynn and Alan Wiggins proved to be a 
potent one-two punch as they combined 
for 13 hits and scored 10 runs during the 

To defeat the Tigers, the Padres will 
need superb performances from Garvey, 
Gwynn. Wiggins, and Terry Kennedy. 

If you are a Padres fan — don't bet the 




By Duke Blessing 

Paced by a pitching staff that allowed 
only four earned runs in the three games 
against the Royals and some timely hitting, 
the Detriot Tigers swept the Kansas City 
Royals, winning the series clinching game 
1-0 on the strength of Milt Wilcox's two- 
hit shutout. 

What can be written that has not al- 
ready been written about this team from 
the Motor City? They are one of the most 
overall balanced teams in baseball history. 
The Tigers can beat you in any and 
every facet of the game. 

M.V.P. Kirk Gibson hit .417 for the 
series and played solid in right field. 
Johnny Grubb provided the most excite- 
ment in the series when he hit a two-run, 
pinch-hit double off the Royals' Dan Qui- 
senberry to win game two. 

The Tigers are in a class by themselves 
and should defeat the Padres in five or 
six games — bet the house! 

The Newman Club 

It has come to my attention that many 
students at Del Val do not know what 
the Newman Club is. I heard from one 
freshman, asking If the Newman Club 
was for all the new students on campus. 
This Is not what the Newman Club is, so 
I decided to talk to Rev. Joseph Cistone, 
more commonly known £is the Spiritual 
Advisor to the Newman Club. 

The Newman Club is named after Car- 
dinal Newman from Oxford, England. 
Cardinal Newman was a convert to the 
Roman Catholic Church and is known as 
the patron of students. 

The Newman Club is an attempt on 
the church's part to meet the needs of 
the Roman Catholic students living on 
the campus. Many students fall away from 
the church during the college years. This 
time for all students is difficult because 
the decisions that are made will affect 
their future and should be aided by the 
church. The Newman Club is trying to 
give the students an identity as a group. 
It is more than just Mass on Sundays; it Is 
a service to the students — service like 
answering questions dealing with their 

At Del Val, there is no place to locate 
a Newman Center. We hold monthly 
meetings, but it is still difficult to contact 
the students. The club is hoping that the 
Catholic students will make the effort to 
make the contact easier. 

The newly-formed club is trying to get 
its feet off the ground. To do this, we 
need the students to come together and 
tell us what thi'ii needs are. For example, 
last year Father Joe held a talk on the 
Dogma of the Catholic Church. It was 
well attended and any questions on the 
topic were answered . Most activities and 
services are held at St. Judes. 

The activities can now be held at St. 
Jude's new beautiful church. The Mass 
schedule is as follows: 
Saturday - 8:00 A.M., 5:00 P.M. 
Sunday - 8:00 A.M., 10:00 A.M., 

12:00 Noon 
Weekdays - 6:45 A.M.. 7:00 P.M. 

Confessions are held: ' 

Saturday - 1:30 P.M. to 2:30 P.M. 
- 7:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. 
The first activity for the semester will 
be on October 15th, at 8:00 to 9:00 P.M. 
in the Coffeehouse Room. Father Joe 
will talk on "Relationships." All are 
welcome to attend. Please come out and 
support the Newman Club.

Del Val Squashes Upsala 
27-7, Awaits Widener 

by Duke Blessing 

"The Aggie 

Photo by Dan 




Scranton University visited DVC on 
Saturday, October 6, and escaped with a 
25-31 cross country victory over the Ag- 
gies. The team ran a good race but the 
1-2 finish of Scranton's Bill Burke and 
Bob Kilcullen was too much to overcome. 
Senior Tom Reynolds made his last home 
meet a great one as he was DVC's first 
runner with a personal best time of 29:01. 
The next Aggie Harrier was Ken McDaid 
who finished in fourth place with a time 
of 29:09. The next two places were va- 
cated by Royals, but DVC then took the 
following four places. Three of these next 
Aggies broke the exclusive 30-minute 
barrier on the course and joined the 
'Sub-30 Club.' These runners were Al 
Krouse in 29:33, John Thomson in 
29:43, and Dave Spotts in 29:48. Just 
missing on his bid for the Sub-30 Club 
was sophomore Don Billet who crossed 
the finish line in 30:05 in 10th place. The 
Del Val pack is even more closely knit 
now as only :47 separated runners one 
through five. The Aggies take their 7-3 
TCcord on the road tomorrow as they will 
participate in the Allentown Invitational. 


By Linda Bailey 

On Saturday, October 6, the women's 
cross country team held their first home 
meet of the season against Scranton and 
Lockhaven with scores of 15 points, 
Scranton to 40 points, DVC and 20 
points, Lockhaven to 35 points, DVC. 
Scranton swept places first, second, and 
third as Theresa Meade, Julie Haggerty, 
and Mary Leady crossed the finish line 
with times of 17:27, 18:12. and 18:19 
respectively. Monica Etwiller, DVC's first 
runner to cross the finish, placed eighth 
with a time of 19:33. Kim Hack finished 
with the time of 19:59 putting her in 10th 
place. Places 14, 15, and 16 went to 
Wendy Fields, Tana Hawes, and Donna 
hoover with times of 20:58, 21:41, and 
23:12 respectively. Debbi Hyde finished 
18th with the time of 25:42. The girls next

Offensive Unit Also Excells 

in the Clossroom 

By Joe Ferry 

With an average grade-point average 
of 3.38, the Delaware Valley College of- 
fensive unit goes a long way in dispelling 
the myth that athletes, particularly foot- 
ball players, are less-than-dedicated 
students. . : 

"I think tfiat the academic achtevements 
of these students deserve recognition," 
said Aggies' coach Al Wilson . "They work 
extremely hard on the field but they also 
apply their concentration to their studies. 
It's not easy coming off the practice field 
and sitting down for a couple of hours of 
studying. But they obviously have the de- 
termination to do it night after night." 

Of the 11 starters, four are Biology 
majors, four are Business Administration 
majors, one is a Food Industry major, 
one is an Agronomy major, and one is a 
Horticulture major. 

"They personify what Division 111 ath- 
letics is all about," said Wilson. They arc 
student-athletes in the truest sense of the 
word. They have their priorities in order." 

While the Aggies are doing well in the 
classroom, their performance on the field 
hasn't been too shabby either. In two 
games, the Aggies are 1-1 and are averag- 
ing 327.5 yards per game in total offense. 

Several players have plans to further 
their education after college. Kemberling 
and Avallone have already taken their 
Medical School Admissions Test while 
Rada has set his sights on attending Den- 
tal School. 

Glowatski is contemplating several op- 
tions regarding his future. He is a strong 
candidate for an NCAA Post-Graduate 
Scholarship to pursue his Masters Degree 
in Business Administration. But Glowat- 
ski, who was the first Delaware Valley 
College student to be nominated for the 
prestigious Hani; S. Truman Scholarship, 
may first pursue a career in professional 
football. The holder of almost every one 
of the College's receiving records, Glowat- 
ski has already been looked at by pro 

Stahl was elected to the second-team 
CoSIDA Academic All-America team 
last year. He is a strong possibility again 
this year, along with several other worthy 
candidates from the DVC football team. 

"I can't say enough good things about 
them," said Wilson. "One thing we look 
for when we recruit a player is whether 
or not four years down the road he can 
earn his degree and make something of 
his life. They have done exactly that and 
even a little bit more. They should be 
commended for their accomplishments." 

To say that last Saturday's game in East 
Orange, New Jersey was a "must- win" 
situation may be stretching it a bit, but 
one can say that a loss would have been 
detrimental to the Aggies' hope for a 
Middle Atiantic Conference championship. 

Coming Into the game, Upsala College 
had a 2-0 MAC mark and the Aggies 
were in a four- way tie for the second spot. 
After the game, every team in the league 
had at least one loss. 

Thanks to the efforts of a stingy Aggie 
defense and an offense which netted 429 
total yards, Del Val cruised to a 27-7 vic- 
tory and set the stage for tomorrow's 
showdown with Widener University. 

Jim Hannon and Bob Charette com- 
bined to squash runner after runner as 
Upsala could only muster 198 total yards. 
In Bruce Sweda's absence, Greg Currie 
and Craig Bmeman played fine games 
as did the entire defensive unit. 

On the offensive side, Nick Russo fin- 
ished a 74-yard drive with a touchdown 
from the one to put the Aggies ahead 7-0. 

Upsala came right back to tie the score 
at 7-7 with Jim Sullivan scoring from the 

After gaining 64 yards in less than one 
half of play, Nick Russo had to be helped 
off the field (it was later found out to be 
stretched ligament) where he did not re- 

turn to play. 

The Aggies went into halftime tied 7-7 
and faced the situation of playing the sec- 
ond half without Russo. 

Russo's replacement was Jim Wilson 
and it took only seconds before his im- 
pact was felt. On the second play of the 
half, Wilson took the ball and raced down 
the left side of the field for a 53-yard 
touchdown, giving the Aggies a 14-7 lead. 

Wilson, who finished the day with 82 
yards on 10 carries scored the third Aggie 
touchdown of the day on a 1-yard plunge. 

Rounding out the scoring was Central 
Bucks East graduate, Paul Dennis who 
hauled in a 24-yard touchdown pass from 
Gary Kemberling (15-27-233 yards). 

The Aggies (3-2, 3-1 MAC) look to be 
in good shape for the second half of the 
season. Although there is a logjam at the 
top of the standings, three of the team's 
remaining four conference games will be 
at home, including tomorrow's Home- 
coming Day game against Widener and 
the November 3 game versus Lycoming 

Tomorrow's game with Widener is a 
crucial one in the standings so everybody 
come out and give the team all your sup- 
port. Game time is 1:30 p.m.

Master of Perfection 

By Dan Smoker 

The 1984 Major League Baseball sea- 
son came to a close on a perfect note. 
That perfect note was played by the 
California Angel's Mike Witt. The Angel 
hurler threw the 13th {perfect game of nine 
innings or better in major league history 
as he put down 27 Texas Rangers in a 

Witt's perfect game was the third no- 
hitter of 1984 and the second perfect 
game, Detroit's Jack Morris no-hit the 
Chicago White Sox and eight days later 
Montreal's Dave Palmer retired all 15 
batters he faced in a rain -shortened win 
over St. Louis. 

Witt struck out 10 and was touched for 
only one well hit ball that was caught at 
the right field fence. Having the honors 
of catching Witt's perfect game was former

Homecoming 1984 

Happy Hi-Jinks at Homecoming Holiday 

We Have a Parade! 

By Jamie Beck 

The Delaware Valley College Home- 
coming Day Parade started the jam- 
packed day off with a BANG! An event 
'^of real fun! Student Government sup- 
plied the crowd with coffee and dough- 
nuts and joined the sprawling mass of 
onlookers in cheering on the bands, 
floats, and noted dignitaries and celebri- 
ties. Grand Marshal was Chuck Fusina of 
Jhe U.S.F.L.. Philadelphia Stars. 

Homecoming Queen, Jennifer Corri- 
gan. and those nominated for Queen 
added beauty to the cavalcade as they 
passed in their open cars. 

The Floral Society, who were dressed 
up like F.T.D. messengers, passed out 
carnations to the crowd — a real pleaser. 
The Investment Club came in from outer 
space dressed up like Martians and tossed 
Hershey kisses to the many hands out- 
reached to them. Lots and lots of great 
floats, far too numerous to mention, but 
a genuine tribute to the spirit that is 

Delaware Valley College. The winner for 
the spirit car was the Floral Society. The 
winners for the floats were 4th place, 
FFA; 3rd place. Biology Club; 2nd place, 
Dairy Society; and 1st place went to 
Block and Bridle. 

The parade included a lot of fine music 
headed by the Del Val College Band . . . 
a fine group of musicians. Next came the 
great New Hope-Solebury High School* 
Band with ffags. twirlers, etc.. and tal- 
ented musicians. Then the Patriots of 
Central Bucks East strutted their stuff, 
and they have good stuff! The Unami 
Junior High Band closed up the parade 
in grand style. For kids of all ages they 
had fire trucks and ambulances. It was a 
wonderful morning out in the bracing air 
feeling good about everything. 

It was a most impressive affair when 
you think about all time and effort and 
caring that went into the preparation and 
the parade itself. It made me feel good 
and feel proud to be an Aggie!

Fall Gardening Lecture I 
Native Azaleas 

By Bill Rein 

In the first of three fall gardening lec- 
tures sponsored by the O.H. Department 
and the Doylestown Nature Club. Mr. 
Bruce Keyser talked about the azaleas 
native to our country. As with all these 
lectures, it was enlightened with slides, 
and enhanced by refreshments. 

The speaker is a graduate of DVC. 
Early in the talk, however, Mr. Keyser 
emphasized that he wasn't always study- 
ing plants. In fact, he started as a fresh- 
man at Lebanon Valley College, playing 
football, with his motivating interest in a 
future with the pros. He got a "D" in 
Botany; and though he worked the sum- 
mer before at the Morris Arboretum, he 
just "did not like plants'" Nonetheless, he 
was midway through his freshman sum- 
mer, again working at Morris, when he 
took an interest in propagating azaleas in 
their greenhouses. From this sudden in- 

terest he switched to DVC. and went on 
to teach Horticulture at a Tech. school in 
Montgomery County. Then he moved 
down to Waynesboro to run a landscape 
business. Bruce and his partner "didn't 
hit it off," so he came back to Bucks 
County for seven years. It was not until a 
few years ago that he began to concen- 
trate on his ongoing interest in the rho- 
dodendrons, especially the propagation 
of azaleas, at his new nursery in upper 
Montgomery County. 

As if this history wasn't interesting 
enough for a college student pondering a 
career in agriculture. Mr. Keyser then in- 
troduced his audience to "the full beauty 
of native azaleas." Most of the azaleas we 
know are little tender evergreen azaleas, 
or the tall, leggy, short-lived English Ex- 
bury Azaleas which are noted for few but 
large and beautiful flowers. Bruce Keyser 
found something so much better in our 
own backyard! Native azaleas are "fully 
clothed" with leaves right to the ground 
— different species can bloom through 
the summer into the fall (instead of just 
April and May) — and since these na-

Everyone got rip-roarin' rowdy at Fri-

our toughest winters. 

However, with sixteen different spe- 
cies, there are as many individual char- 
acteristics which would be outstanding if 
they somehow were together in one plant! 
Indeed, with his slides. Bruce showed 
natives that were yellow, natives that 
were white, some tliat even smelled good, 
and some that bloomed like fire in the 
valleys of Virginia. He enthusiastically 
suggested: take a species with many 
flowers, cross it with a large -flowered 
species, and then maybe with a fragrant 
one. and "maybe three generations down 
the line we'll get an American Azalea 
with no mildew problems, clothed to the 
ground, with lots of large flowers!" This 
breakthrough would be both a personal 
triumph, and perhaps an economic suc- 
cess, and would benefit nearly all who 
plant azaleas. 

You can see some of Bruce Keyser's 
work at Wynterset Nurseries in Perkio- 
menville, PA. Ask Mr. Benner or Mr. 
Ray (the O.H. Dept.) for details. 

Barncss came in first. Congratulations! 

A heated contest for Homecoming 
Queen came to a conclusion at the rally. 
Arlene Stein of Block and Bridle came in 
second runner up. Polly Edc from the 
Agronomy Club was first runner up, and 
this year's Homecoming Queen is the 
Dairy Society's own Jennifer Corrigan. 
Our sincerest congratulations to all the 
participants and special cudos to Jennifer. 

And for a DVC first, the Lacrosse 
Team's own Chris Kelly was named Mr. 

It was a great Pep Rally and attended 
by many alumni as well as by students 
and faculty. "Go Aggies!!"

Field Hockey Team 

by Dan Smoker 

DVC saw the women's field hockey 
record even out at 4-4-1 last week as 
they recorded a win and a loss. They col- 
lected their win by defeating FDU 1-0. 
but they also lost to Drew 3-0, at their 
Homecoming game. 

Debbie Brown scored 20 minutes into 
the first period with an assist from Lisa 
Long to defeat FDU. Lyn Schumack had 
an outstanding performance in goal, 
turning away seven point-blank scoring 
opportunities. "Lyn had the best game of 
her career. I couldn't see how she came 
up with some of her saves," said coach 
Peggy Vellner. 

The Homecoming game against Drew 
was a different story as Drew handed 
DVC a 3-0 loss. Drew scored early in the 
first period and scored two more quick 
goals to put the game out of reach before 
DVC knew what had happened. Drew 
fired 30 shots on goal while DVC took 
only 11 shots. Lyn Schumack had a 
tough first peirod but she settled down, 
making some outstanding saves in the 
second half. 

Other outstanding performances were 
turned in by right link Jackie Heflich, full- 
back Tina Drey, and center Carol Serik. 
The field hockey season comes to a close 
tomorrow as DVC takes on Lycoming 
(away) for their final game.

WIDENER, 36-3 

by Duke Blessing 

The Aggies squandered numerous op- 
portunities on offense and watched Dan 
Guy, quarterback for Widener, scramble 
for what seemed like minutes as he 
picked apart the Aggie defense in leading 
Widener University to a 36-3 victory 
over DVC on Homecoming Day. 

Although the Aggies were in the game 
going into the fourth quarter (they trailed 
only 15-3) . things blew wide open in the 
final period as Widener scored three 
touchdowns. , ^ 

Guy completed 20 of 24 passes for 
223 yards and three touchdowns. "The 

difference in offense was the job Guy did 
getting loose," Aggie coach Al Wilson 
said after the game. "That is the type of 
offense Widener has. That's what it's all 

What Widener is all about may have 
cost the Aggies a conference champion- 
ship this year. 

Freshman Jim Wilson had an outstand- 
ing game as he rushed for 97 yards on 
19 carries. 

The Widener defense did an outstand- 
ing job shutting down the Kemberling- 
Glowatski connection as the two paired 
up only one time for nine yards. 

Congratulations to Nick Russo, winner 
of the "Bruno" award. 

The Aggies try to regroup and travel to 
Juniata tomorrow to take on their peren- 
nial nemesis. Game time is 1:30 p.m. 

Mike Moyer (96) and Glen Pazzalia 
(97) converge on Widener's Dan Guy.

Great Debate 

by ED. Wengryn 

The candidates for the 8th Congres- 
sional District from Pennsylvania squared 
off in the All-Purpose Room before a 
crowd of 436 people for the first of their 
campaign debates. The candidate, Peter 
Kostmayer, three-term Democratic In- 
cumbant, was set up against Republican 
contestant David Christian. 

Both candidates are young and have 
visions for the future. In the words of Dr. 
Click, "No matter who wins the election, 
the voters of Bucks County and this dis- 
trict do." As for the debate itself, county 
voters got an ear full. 

In opening statements. Christian used 
the time to introduce himself and his 
background. He presented himself as a 
fighter. As a child he was on welfare until 
his mother remarried. He was also the 
youngest Army captain ever (he received 
commission at age 20) and left Vietnam 
as a disabled veteran. He spoke against 
Agent Orange, against taxes, and sup- 
ported jobs for the disabled. 

When Kostmayer got up to open, he 
talked about his returning jobs to Bucks 
County, the reopening of Eastern Ce- 
•ramics, and the saving of steel worker 
jobs. He mentioned the bringing of 
federal urban development monies to 
the district, and the preservation of the 
district's wildlife areas including the first 
federal wildlife preservation in tiw 

Kostmayer looked polished in his pre- 
sentation of materials as his experience 
showed. He answered the questions asked 
of him while gibing his opponent. . 
, Christian tried continually to push the 
fact that Kostmayer misrepresented the 
people, that he sold them short and uses 
redirect to cover it up. 

Kostmayer made a point of informing 
Christian that Washington vras a tel 
tougher than the campaign and that 
working there is no picnic. And to that 
extent Kostmayer is correct as Christian 
appears naive to Washington and be- 
cause he says it will happen he is al^j 
assuming Reagan will win and that he 
will "have the President's car." 

By the end of the debate the can- 
didates settled down and left the voters 
from Bucks County with a difficult chore. 
Do we go with the candidate who works 
for us and gets things done? Or do we 
vote for the candidate who might work 
for us a little bit harder, or maybe not at 
all? These questions will be answered on 
election day and from there time will tell. 

Blood Drive Coming Soon 

For the past three tries, DVC's Blood 
Drive has failed to reach its goal of 200 
pints. This is due to a lack of support by 
teachers and students. With more than 
800 people living on campus, you figure 
more than 200 would show up for a 
chance to "save a life." So let's get out 
there on November 28th from 10:30 
a.m. -3: 30 p.m. and help yourself to 
save a life. 


Anyone wanting to submit a picture to 
the paF)cr. place in Box 988, care of 
Ram Pages by 12:00 Monday or contact 
me, Linda Goodloe, photo editor. 



Kostmayer / Christian Debate

by E.D. Wengryn 

As the second debate between the 
presidential candidates started 1 knew It 
wouldn't be that fun. How much fun can 
you have with foreign affairs, the Beirut 
bombings, and Russian "star wars?" Let 
me tell you that the candidates lived up 
to my expectations. 

Mondale did everything he did the first 
time. He made his points and answered 
his questions. He also prodded Reagan 
on his failures as a leader, his lack of 
awareness, and his inability to be effec- 
tive when the time comes. 
-Reagan, on the other hand, was more 
relaxed this time. He delivered smooth 
speeches and rebuttles. His only problem 
was he didn't always reply to a question 
or a stated fact. Because of this Reagan 
seemed detached, which almost proved 
Mondale's statements. But like 1 said, 
who listens when it's foreign affairs? . 

The whole debate was not a complete 
waste as some facts were presented, 
such as: the inability of the present ad- 
ministration to secure an agreement with 
the Russians, the fact that the arms rac€ 
continues at a dangerous pace, and that 
the Carter-Mondale administration sold 
the United States short. All of these facts 
were stretched out and pushed around 
and twisted to make each candidate look 
good. After all, isn't that what counts? 

All in all, the debate was working 
toward two separate goals: one, to prove 
age hasn't ruined Reagan, and two, that 
Mondale is a strong person, not a wimp. 
Both candidates proved these goals to be 
true. As for a winner, that's tough. If you 
look at answers and debating points, 
Mondale wins, but because Reagan im- 
proved so much he looked to be a win- 
ner. The final choice is your vote on 
Election Day. 

Crimes of the Heart 

by E.D, Wengryn 

On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 
nights, the DVC All-Purpose Room was 
transformed into a theatre for the pro- 
duction Crimes of the Heart by the 
Delaware Valley Regional Theatre Com- 
pany. The performances by the actors 
were superb as they recreated the drama 
that took place in the new old south. 

The story is about the lives and loves 
of three sisters. The oldest sister, Lenny, 
lived her life for Grandpa, who took care 
of them after their mother hung herself 
and the cat. He is now in the hospital 
and about to die while Lenny feels lost 
because she has no one to live for any- 
more. Meg, on the other hand, has to 
face up to the fact that she is not as 
strong as she thought she was when she 
has to face the lover she ran out on over 
five years before. Babe, on the other 
hand, is in real trouble as she faces a trial 
for shooting her husband because he 
found out she slept with a 15-year-old 
black man. He also has picture proof. 

The play handles all of these problems 
as the story solves them, each in its own 
time. As Lenny finally gets to make a 
wish on the candles with a cake 
underneath, the play ends with everyone 
happy. This show, its cast, and story are 
worth anyone's time to see and it's sug- 
gested that if a performance is around 
again that everyone see it.

Newman Club 

On October 12th, the Newman Club 
hosted its first lecture of the semester. 
The lecture was on the topic of "Rela- 
tionships." given by Rev. Joseph Cistone 
from St. Jude's Roman Catholic Church. 

Father Joe, as he is more commonly 
known, started the evening with a brief 
prayer and then a little background about 
himself. He came to St. Jude's in Oc- 
tober of 1982 and was made the Spiri- 
tual Advisor to the Newman Club. He 
opened with a brief talk about relation- 
ships and then it was open for discus- 
sion. The topic that was on the students' 
minds was friendships. Friendships have 
a way of breaking apart in the last year of 
college. Reasons for this were given by 
the group and also by Father Joe. When 
it was time to end the discussion. Father 
Joe gave a short summary and ended 
with a prayer. 

The Newman Club would like to invite 
all students to come to their next lecture, 
which will be on "Personal Relation- 
ships." The lecture will be held on 
November 12th from 8-9 p.m. in the 
Student Center. Room 201. 202. It 
promises to be very educational for all. 
Food will t« provided. 


On Thursday evening November 1, 
1984, the DVC Apiary Society (beekeep- 
ing club) will be extracting the College's 
honey crop. Anyone interested in seeing 
how honey is extracted, and if they like, 
participating in the process, is invited to 
stop down at the Bee House (across the 
railroad tracks in back of Berkowitz Hall) 
anytime after 7:00 p.m. 

The Apiary Society has teen meeting 
about every two weeks this fall (watch for 
the yellow hexagonal signs for meeting 
announcements) , and the meetings have 
included an excellent film dealing with 
many aspects of the honey bee, a slide 
presentation on honey gathering, honey 
processing, and honey types, and mem- 
bers assisting Dr. Berthold (the club ad- 
visor) in judging the Montgomery County 
Beekeepers Association Honey Show. 

As in past years, the club has many 
types of honey plus related honey bee 
products tor sale. Included are liquid 
clover, orangeblossom. buckwheat, wild- 
flower, and eucalyptus honey; finely 
crystallized honey spreads of plain, apri- 
cot, cinnamon, strawberry, and raspber- 
ry. The honey types are great for snack- 
ing in your room, and they also are great 
to take home for your family or to use as 
holiday gifts. The club also has available 
beeswax candles which make great gifts. 
The honey bee products mentioned 
above are available from club members 
and also at club meetings.- 

In addition to the honey extracting 
planned for Thursday, the club will also 
be involved in making a beeswax con- 
taining product for treating and water- 
proofing leather items like field shoes 
and the making of beeswax candles. 
Members and non -members alike are in- 
vited to attend the meetings and to par- 
ticipate in the evening's activity.

Dear Editors,

Dear Editors, 

Last Friday night, our room, Goldman 
119, was ransacked and burglarized. 
Several hundred dollars worth of mer- 
chandise was stolen. 

The break-in was a direct result of an 
inability to secure the windows. The 
screens are very easy to raise and the 
one window latch doesn't even work. 
The door was locked, so the entry was 
most likely through the window. 

This letter is not so much being written 
to find out who the perpetrators are, or 
even to blame any particular party. The 
true purpose is to alert the students to be 
more aware of the security of their 

What's done is done. This happened 
to us, but it doesn't have to happen to 


The guys from 119 

P.S. Ani; anoni/mous information would 
be deeply appreciated. 

Dear Editors & Students, 

1 AM ANGRY. And disappointed. 
Someone broke into the kitchen at West 
Campus sometime during Homecoming 
Weekend and helped themselves to 
plates, silverware, glasses, serving 
dishes, and the sharp knife. These things 
did NOT belong to me personally but 
have been entrusted in my care. So I 
have been robbed. 

PLEASE, 1 would like ALL of the items 
They're needed! 

YOU have to live with YOURSELF 
and if you like the person that looks back 
at you from your mirror after this, so be

On Thursday, October 11, the second 
of the nationally televised presidential 
election debates took place. Only this 
time it was Bush-Ferraro instead of 
Reagan-Mondale. The debate took off 
fast as both candidates for the vice 
presidency were prepared. 

As for style, Vice President Bush was 
polished and smooth, delivering his 
answers with charm, while Ms. Ferraro 
came across subdued and raspy with her 
voice sounding hoarse. This debate was 
a major one for the women's movement, 
as Ms. Ferraro set the standard for future 
women in debates. 

The debate was on the boring side as 
there was no animosity between the can- 
didates that would put sparks in the air. 
The candidates saw fit to use the time to 
push party platforms and criticize each 
other's running mate instead of each 
other. At times, the debate looked like a 
contest over who could criticize and still 
remain congenial. There were, however, 
strong points scored in the debate. On 
the religious issue, Ms. Ferraro put an 
end to the religious question, stating that 
whenever a religious belief interfered 
with her making a public decision, she 
would resign her ofifice. Bush's rebuttal 
(showing a shakiness) was "I can respect 

that." ■, V- .■■■.•;;.- ■ 

The fun part of the debate came when 
Bush offered to help Ferraro distinguish 
between two different Middle East situa- 
tions. Ms. Ferraro asked in her rebuttal 
that the vice president not patronize her. 

The biggest question of the night, and 
the one that the debates were held for 
was, "Could you step in and replace the 
president if necessary, and you, Ms. Fer- 
raro, being a woman pose as an easy 
target to a potential enemy of the United 
States?" Ms. Ferraro assured everyone 
that she would handle any aggression 
"with swift and firm action, but with 
responsible leadership those situations 
will not arise." George Bush, on the 
other hand, was able to express his 
leadership abilities on his record and 
political experience; for many that is 

As for a winner of the debate. 1 would 
say Vice President George Bush, only 
because his style was smoother. My only 
complaint is the attack on Ferraro's being 
a woman and people feeling a woman 
doesn't belong there. What about Indira 
Ghandi of India and Margaret Thatcher 
of Great Britain?

On Saturday night, numerous DVC 
students and friends gathered behind ad- 
missions for an old fashioned hayride, 
only, a tractor pulled instead of a horse. 

The show began at 8:00 when the first 
wagon went out. At 9:00 when the sec- 
ond trip began, John Flynn, the enter- 
tainer of the night began with his songs of 
humor "Saturday Night Special" and 
"You Look Better in the Dark," along 
with more melancholy music. He was 
very good. The night was warm, the hay 
rides were excellent, as for the dough- 
nuts and cider, you can only have so 
much. Anyway, the night went on until 
2:30 when the fire finally died, even 
though everyone was still ready to go. 
Class of '86, you've done good. Thanks 
for a great time from everyone. 

''What Lurks Behind 
Old Wooden Doors?" 

by Jean Meyer 

Once upon a time, in a land far from 
Bucks County, lived a small family. The 
family was very poor with only $10 to 
their name but, they were very rich in 
love. One day the father, Paul, said to 
their eldest son, Ed. "Your sister Les has 
not come home yet and it is almost dark, 
go and find her." Ed, obeying his father's 
wishes, set out to find his lost sister. 

There was a small creek that ran 
through their small property. Ed picked 
up, like a hound dog, his sister's path. 
The small creek took the small boy into 
the middle of the "Black Forest." The 
night was approaching, the animals were 
hurrying to their homes, and the wind 
was howling. The moon was full and the 
owls were hooting. It was Halloween! 
Since he was a grown boy of 12 he was 
not frightened. Suddenly, a shadow 
loomed in front of him and the boy 
began to run. The faster he ran, the 
faster his heart beat. He stopped to rest, 
but he felt eyes on him . As he began to 
turn, a bat flew at him. As he let out a 
scream, he heard a soft footstep behind 
him. Shaking, he turned around again 
and asked shyly, "Who's there?" No one 
answered. Finally a black shadow from 
the black oak appeared. It was his little 
sister Les. As he let out a sign of relief, 
Les gave her big brother a hug. 

Now, the problem was leaving the 
Black Forest which was pitch black and 
the weather was becoming balmy. The 
children started walking and they came 
upon an old creeky house. The shutters 
were blowing, the porch was crecking. 
and the swing set was swinging. As the 
children opened the door, a bat came at 
them. Les gave out a scream, but Ed 
calmed her by starting a fire in the fire- 
place. The children huddled together by 
the fire to get warm. They did not speak, 
but listened to the sounds of the Black 
Forest. Suddenly, there was a loud crack 
of lightning and the rain began to pour. 
In the distance they heard footsteps. 
"Who could that be," they wondered. 
The footsteps began to get louder by 
each beat of the children's heart. The 
porch steps creaked, one by one. One 
knock on the old wooden door, and 
another knock, and a third knock. Sud- 
denly, the door swung open. 

What do \^ou think happened?

Do you know what happens when a 
false fire alarm is sounded on campus? 
The Doylestown Fire Company estimates 
that at least sixty volunteer people go 
into action, more than four pieces of 
equipment are activated and an expense 
of $500 is incurred. 

In speaking with Assistant Fire Chief 
Steve Walthcr, the facts and figures of a 
false alarm were made quite clear. There 
is always the distinct possibility of injury 
or loss of life to the fire company person- 
nel and innocent motorists and pedestri- 
ans during the emergency response. In 
the stress of the moment, people can, 
and have suffered medical difficulties 
such as heart attacks. Volunteer person- 
nel at their employment or recreation 
are, at the least, inconvenienced. 

Beyond these consequences of a false 
alarm, the public image of our College 
community is demeaned. The College's 
reputation, and therefore our students' 
reputation, is very much on the line. 

If all these factors are insufficient to 
deter anyone from sounding a false fire 
alarm, then the criminal consequences 
should be considered. Doylestown Police 
Chief Robert Cobb speaks of the possi- 
bility of a $2500 fine and/or a year in jail 
and if sotneone is injured or killed during 
the incident, the penalties escalate to 
$25.0(X) and seven to twenty years in 

For all the above reasons, false fire 
alarms- cost, it can cost others; it can cost 
the College; it can particularly cost you. 

"Splash" is no Dive 

by Jamie Beck 

The audience in the APR seemed to 
love last Tuesday's motion picture 
Splash. The movie. Splash, is about a 
man who falls in love with a fish. That's 
right, this past summer's hit movie is 
about a man, Alan (Tom Hanks), who 
falls in love with a mermaid (Daryl Han- 
nah). The results are fun. laughs, love, 
and excitement. 

Alan didn't know he fell in love with a 
mermaid until later in the story because, 
out of the water, she had human legs. 
She learned English in a day by watching 
TV at Bloomingdale's and she go her 
name, Madison, from Madison Avenue 
in New York City. 

The whole cast and crew of Splash 
work wonderfully together. Especially 
John Candy who plays Alan's playboy- 
ish, overweight, older brother, Freddie. 
He steals the scenes that he is in. 

If you missed the movie, you missed a 
lot. Wait until it comes out on video 
cassette or on cable because Splash is an 
excellent type of movie.

"Area's Cheapest Takeout" 

Rt. 202 • New Britain, PA 



by Duke Blessing 

After defeating Upsala three weeks 
ago, the DVC Aggies were sitting pretty 
atop the Middle Atlantic Conference 
standings with a 3-1 record. With three 
of their last four conference games at 
home, including Widener and Lycom- 
ing, the Aggies controlled their own 
destiny, - ^ r.;. 

Even after being crushed by Widener 
on Homecoming Day, DVC still had a 
slim chance for a piece of the title. 

Destiny has dropped her bomb on the 
50-yard line of James Work Stadium 
and the team must dig out from under 
the rubble to finish out the season with a 
respectable record. Title hopes have faded 
into oblivion for the 1984 football team. 

The Aggies (3-4, 3-3) became Juniata's 
first conference victim this year as they 
finished on the short end of a 24-17 

Juniata's sophomore fullback Ian 
Malee broke loose for a 26-yard touch- 
down run with 1:34 left in the game to 
break a 17-17 tie and eliminate the Ag- 
gies from conference title contention. 

Although overshadowed by the loss, 
two Aggies enjoyed good days as they 
broke school records. 

Gary Kemberling went 19 of 33 for 
233 yards and one touchdown. In the 
process, he broke the single-season pass- 
ing yardage record set last year by Tommy 
O'Neil (1.365). Kemberling's favorite 
target Dan Glowatski broke the single- 
game record for receptions that he shared 
with Harry Capozzi (nine) as he hauled 
in 11 catches for 132 yards. 

The Aggies travel to Madison, New 
Jersey, tonight to take on FDU-Madison 
at 8 p.m. Although title hopes are over 
for this season, it would be a plus going 
into 1985 winning the remaining three 
games and finishing 6-4.

The Aggies saw their season record 
fall to 1-9 after dropping a 2-0 loss at 

The offensive problems continued even 
though the Aggies outshot Lycoming

kicks, 9-5.

Field Hockey Team 
Finishes on a Winning Note 

by Dan Smoker 

The DVC Field Hockey team finished 
its season winning two of their last three 
games, finishing above the .500 mark 
with a record of 6-5-1. Their only loss of 
the week came to Widener. The team 
came back winning their last two games 
by beating Scranton and Lycoming. 

At Widener, DVC fell behind early, 
but came back to tie the game on a Nancy 
Brake goal with 10 minutes left in the first 
half. Ten minutes into the second half 
Carol Serik scored a goal to put DVC 
ahead 2-1. Widener retaliated two min- 
utes later with a goal to tie the score and 
then scored again leaving DVC with a 
3-2 loss. 

The game with Scranton was not de- 
cided until the closing seconds. Debbie 
Mascuilli scored early in the first half to 
put DVC ahead, but Scranton scored to 
tie the game at 1-1. The game remained 
deadlocked until the last five minutes 
when DVC put on a surge which resulted 
in a corner. Lisa Long made a perfect 
corner causing a shuffle in front of the 
Scranton goal that resulted in a penalty 
stroke when the Scranton goalie sat on 
the ball. Carol Serik took the penalty 
stroke for DVC which she slammed past 
the goalie to win the game with only nine 
seconds remaining. 

DVC played their final game with 
Lycoming, which DVC easily won 6-1. 
Carol Serik scored the lone DVC goal in 
the first half. As the game resumed in the 
second half the score was tied at 1-1, but 
it was not to stay that way for long. 
Jackie Heflich scored twice as Lisa Long, 
Debbie Brown, and Debbie Mascuilli 
each contributed with a goal. 

"I was pleased with our performance 
this year," said coach Peggy Vellner. 
"We had a fine group of girls and I was 
happy to have been their coach."

BwC'Mont High Schools 
Deserve and Get 
National Attention * 

by Duke Blessing -^ , 

it's funny to sit in the cafeteria or in the 
gym or anywhere on campus and listen 
to students from other areas talk about 
how great their teams are and how much 
better they are than teams from up 
around this area. Well, now it's about 
time to get the facts straight! 

In basketball, I will be the first person 
to admit that the teams in this are are not 
as good as the teams from schools in 
Philadelphia, Washington, and New 
York but there are several differences 
which favor the Bux-Mont. 

In Bux-Mont basketball, all students 
are literate and none have prison rec- 
ords. The starting five from C.B. East last 
year are all attending colleges with mini- 
mum SAT scores of 1100. The C.B. 
West captains are pre-Med at Penn, Cor- 
nell, and Delaware. Most Bux-Mont bas- 
ketball players put studies first because 
they realize that a college degree and a 
professional-type job are where it's all at. 

C.B. West is a football powerhouse 
that has sent truckloads of players to col- 
lege as student/athletes. This season, in 
a rebuilding year, the Bucks are 6-0 and 
have outscored their opponents 214-0! 
Add C.B. East at 7-0 and North Penn at 
6-1 and the top teams in one of the 
state's best leagues could play anybody 
anywhere. Football graduates of both 
local schools flood law schools and 
medical schools after their successful col- 
lege days are over while again, none 
choose prison after the last whistle blows. 

C.B. East is ranked near the top of the 
state annually in soccer and this year is 
no different. The Patriots are 14-0-2 and 
have been on some honorable mention 
lists in the national rankings. 

The Patriots also are state power-

The DVC Cross Country team closed 
out its dual-meet season in Reading last 
Saturday. The Aggies ran tough but lost 
an 18-37 decision to Albright College. 
However, it must be noted that DVC 
was without the services of frontrunner 
Ken McDaid who missed the meet due 
to an injury. Filling in the top spot for the 
Aggies was sophomore Dave Spotts who 
improved his time on Albright's course 
by :55 over last year. Spotts finished 5th 
overall. Right behind Spotts were senior 
Tom Reynolds and sophomore John 
Thomson who continues to improve. 
Reynolds and Thomson clocked in eight 
seconds behind Spotts and in 6th and 
7th places respectively. The next finishers 
for the Aggies were Al Krase and Don 
Billet who took 9th and 10th places, 45 
seconds behind Spotts. Closing at the 
Aggie contingent was Rob Benner who 
checked in at 12th place. DVC finished 
the season with a 7-4 record (5-3 MAC) . 
The Harriers take next week off and then 
travel to Ft. Indiantown Gap, Pa. on 
November 3 for MAC Championships. 

houses in tennis and golf, where although 
there are only a few scholarships avail- 
able in both sports, student/athletes 
from C.B. East seem to gobble them up 

C.B. West has sent wrestlers to Wilkes, 
Rider, Bucknell, and Lehigh. The East- 
West heavyweight match in 1980 fea- 
tured an All-State football/wrestler head- 
ed to the U.S. Naval Academy against 
an All Area football/wrestler with an 
SAT of 1400, headed to Lehigh Univer- 
sity. Two of the best wrestlers in Aggie 
history, Troy Marshall and Mark (med- 
school) Sands are from Bux-Mont high 
schools (C.B. West and Pennridge). 

Throw in the M.V.P.'s of the Rhode 
Island Field Hockey team (East's Karen 
Murphy) and the All-A.C.C. captain of 
William and Mary's Field Hockey team 
(East's Lisa Fuccella) for good measure. 
'Don't forget All- American quarterback 
and outfielder Kevin Ward who is now in 
the Phillies farm system and All-American 
nose tackle Ivan Lesnick (both of C.B. 
West) who turned down pro offers to go 
to medical school. 

C.B. West's Jim Jensen of the Miami 
Dolphins was recently featured in Sports 
Illustrated and East's Scott Stankavage 
plays for the Denver Broncos. 

Colleges at every level flock to these 
Bux-Mont schools because of the com- 
bination of superior athletic skills and 
superior academic talent. 

So as the basketball season approach- 
es, you may not see any broken rims in 
Buckingham (C.B. East) or shattered 
backboards in Doylestown (C.B. West) 
but you will see admission counselors 
from the top 50 schools in the nation 
drooling as these student/athletes apply 
and seriously consider their institution. 

For what is the real purpose of going 
to college? The Bux-Mont high schools 
have all the answers! 

And ma'am, these are the facts — 
only the facts!

An Editorial 

Where did the fear and mistrust come 
from? I've heard this question asked many 
times this semester around the campus 
and I often wonder the same thing myself. 

I know many people who used to go 
3ut around campus by themselves in past 
years but this year they won't due to a lack 
of trust and an ever-present fear. Perhaps 
these feelings are caused by the disrespect 
and the poor attitude that has been shown 
around campus. I would never dream of 
going anywhere without locking-up my 
room this year. 

Maybe it is time to change the attitude 
around here. It sure would be nice if there 
would be a lot jnore respect shown to 
both the campus and the people living 
on it, In a group type of living arrange- 
ment, everyone must think of "we" and 
not just "me." It would also be nice if the 
physical damage to the campus would 
cease, but I suppose that won't happen 
until the knotheads who cause this 
damage leave. 

As for the fear of being alone at night, 
there isn't too much that anyone can do 
about that until the poor attitude is 
changed and maybe a little more trust is 
demonstrated. :,: 

If anyone has any comments on this 
subject, jot them down and drop them in

On Friday, October 26. Delaware Val- 
ley was treated with the pleasant sound- 
ing tunes of Linda Black. Linda started in 
the coffeehouse but the excitement was 
too great. Before long she was jamming 
in the courtyard and the excitement con- 
tinued. She sang Rock 'n Roll history — 
everything from Led ZeppJin to Simon 
and Garfunkel. Linda went beyond sing- 
ing, she entertained. She had the whole 
audience involved. The coffeehouse 
seemed like a mini-talent show with solos 
by Fib and Kitty. Good job. girls! 

Besides good music, amusing entertain- 
ment, and the good old DVC talent, there 
was plenty of doughnuts to go around. 
Surely she will return, due to the over- 
whelming response. She said. "She 
loves Del Val" and we'd love to have her 
back again and again. If you did not see 
her this time — don't feel bad she will be 
back. Great job, Linda!

This past weekend, October 25. 26, 
and 27, six members of the Chorale along 
with Mrs. Roberts represented Delaware 
Valley College at the Pennsylvania Col- 
legiate Choral Festival which was held at 
Clarion University in northwestern Penn- 
sylvania. The representatives from DVC 
were Dan Brehm, Steve Cissel, and Cliff

Betsy Dixon, and Leslie Blatt as altof. 

The group left on Wednesday evening 
and traveled to East Waterford, PA. 
where they stayed at Loveland farm over- 
night. Thanks Cliff! Everything was 

After a delicious, hearty breakfast, the 
crew was off to what began as an exciting 
and educational weekend. The chorus, 
which was made up of approximately 
150 voices from 22 colleges, rehearsed 
all day Thursday and Friday under the 
direction of Mr. Robert Page, one of the 
most distinguished choral directors in this 

After rehearsal on Saturday morning, 
the chorus assembled for the main con- 
cert. The program consisted of a Bach 
Motet and a song written by Hadyn, 
which were both sung in German; a piece 
by Carl Orff which was done in Latin; 
and a few songs which were taken from 
modern operas. It was a difficult but re- 
warding program as everyone worked 
extremely hard to produce one of the 
best concerts I've ever attended. After 
the concert, we all settled down for a 
6-hour drive back "home" to DVC. 

Steve, Dan, Cliff, Anita. Betsy, Leslie, 
and Mrs. Roberts are very proud to an- 
nounce that the 1985 Pennsylvania Col- 
legiate Choral Festival will be held here 
at Delaware Valley College. It will be 

Thanks guys! It was a heck of a week-

Fall Gardening Lecture III 

By Bill Rein 

The last of the 1984 Fall Gardening 
Lecture Series, co-sponsored by the 
OH, department and the Doylestown 
Nature Club, was held last Wednesday, 
October 24 in the coffeehouse. It fea- 
tured Dr. D.K. Christiansen . a surgeon 
by profession, and a daylily fancier by 

Botanically known as Hemerocallis. 
meaning "beauty for today," daylilies 
bloom but one day. In different forms, 
one bed of these plants can give continu- 
ous bloom of flowers, from June through 
September. And different forms there 
are! Some have foliage that is evergreen, 
some are semi-evergreen, and many 
others are completely deciduous. Dr. 
Christianson has about 800 cultivars in 
his own garden; in the slide presentation, 
he showed us beautiful deep reds, some 
almost-whites, bi-colored daylilies with 
contrasting "throats," and some newly 
popular varieties with a spot of color 
(called "eyes") on one petal. 

The excellent characteristics of this plant 
may go beyond its varied forms of beauty 
in flower — they are virtually indestruc- 
tible perennials! As Dr. Christianson said. 
"You can even mow them with a lawn- 
mower and still can't get rid of them." 
Everyone has probably seen the "wild" 
tawny daylily in rows along roads — that 
orange flower on a stalk, flowering in mid- 
summer — so beautiful yet not bothered 
by a highway life. This plant is genetically 
a "triploid. " but there are diploids and te- 
traploids now bred with thicker petals, 
and even double-flowered daylilies. 

Dr. Christianson noted that the popu- 
larity of the new breeds is due to the work 
of the American Hemerocallis Society, to 
which he belongs. This group swaps 
plants, finds new breeds, and sells them 
at auctions. No price seems too great, 
either. Some admirers are willing to pay 
upwards of $300 for new and scarce va- 
rieties! All of this interest has led to a cur- 
rent registration of almost 25.000 differ- 
ent varieties. "You have to go and see it 
before you buy it." explained Dr. Chris- 

If you are interested in growing a plant 
with beautiful, recurved petals, which re- 
quires no skill to plant, and can be left 
alone for about five years (blooming tre- 
mendously), and which flowers during 
the hottest part of the summer when 
everything else is exhausted, get yourself 
a mail-order garden catalog and buy 
some of these terrific plants. If you are 
already familiar with daylilies. you might 
want to contact the Doylestown Nature

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors and Studettts, 

I would like to thank the maintenance 
department for the quick action in taking 
care of and fixing the problem with off/ 
on hot water in Bamess and Cooke. After 
talking several times with the new mana- 
ger of maintenance. Mr. Jim Tully, I feel 
for once that we have a person who is 
concerned with our consumer rights as 
resident students at Del Val. As one who 
has dealt with our administration in trying 
to get things done in the past, it was a 
pleasure to deal with Mr. Tully. I only 
hope the administration continues to back 
him and let him do his job and they do 
theirs. They will always say that the dorms 
are first on the list with maintenance and 
that everything is fine in the dorms. As a 
dorm resident seven days a week. I'm glad 
we finally have someone who sees our 
problems and also acts on them. I wish 
Mr. Tully the best of luck in fixing the 
many "band-aid jobs" on campus, that 
should have been fixed properly the first

By E.D. Wengryn 

On Wednesday. November 28 from 
10:30 to 3:30 the Annual Fall Blood 
Drive will occur in the All-Purpose Room 
of the Student Center. The bbod mobile 
comes to DVC twice a year — spring 
and fall to collect blood for the area hospi- 
tals. Every year, students and teachers of 
Delaware Valley College are encouraged 
to donate. 

To give blood is not difficult and would 
occupy 45 minutes of your day. 10- IS 
minutes filling out forms and being 
checked by a nurse (blood pressure and 
anemia testing). You then move over to 
the table where you are to give blood 
(only if you pass your tests) . The donation- 
lasts about 20 minutes and doesn't hurf4: 
at all (you may feel a numb spot for a 
while) . After that you are escorted to the 
doughnut and juice table where you are 
pampered by nurses and nursing aides. i 
This is the longest and best part of the" 
donation, lasting till you want to leave;'! 
and folks that is all there is to it. It doesn'tt 
hurt and the blood you give is used tO; 
help people who need it — people whai;. 
have lost blood in car accidents; people" 
who need operations or may have in-/- 
jured themselves severely. These people' 
might die if the blood was not given and 
one day you may be one of these peo- 
ple. Think about it. and then sign up 
either with your R.A.. in the Student 
Center, the cafeteria, or post office to 
give blood. The life you save could be 
your own.

Local High Schools 

By Duke Blessing 

The local "big three" (C.B West, C.B. 
East, and North Penn) put all cylinders 
into gear and destroyed their opposition 
again as the "upped " their composite 
record to 22-1 

The Bux-Mont league, which has al- 
ways been one of the top leagues in 
Southeastern Pennsylvania, is making 
an already strong state wide reputation 
that much stronger with its "hanlball" ap- 
proach to football. 

Powerhouse *1 — Doylestown's Cen- 
tral Bucks High School West. The Bucks 
made it 7-0 on the season as they de- 
feated Pennridge. 28-0, This marks the 
seventh straight shutout for the Bucks as 
they have outscored their opponents. 
245-0. They rushed for 33(-> yards and 
passed for 122 yards. Defensively, they 
allowed only 69 total yards. Not bad for 
a rebuilding year! 

Powerhouse ^2 — Buckingham's 
Central Bucks High School East. The 
Patriots made it 8-0 as they beat up ol% 
Perkiomen Valley. 31-{X Offensively,' 
they churned out 195 yards and on the 
defensive side, held Perk Valley to 162 
total yards. Hello Thanksgiving! 

Powerhouse *3 — Lansdale's North 
Penn High School. The Knights went 7-1 
as they crushed Upper Perkiomen* 
46-13. Including punt returns, the Knights 
racked up 5(X) total yards (without their 
top two offensive players) and held UP. 
below 200 total yards. The one blemish 
on a perfect North Penn season is a 7-6 
loss to C.B. East. Bring on C.B West! 

This weekend: Upper Perkiomen is at 
C.B. West. C.B. East is idle and NortH: 
Penn takes on Souderton. 

The well-oiled, three-headed monstef 
at the top of all Southeastern Pennsylva- 
nia polls will get you — even if you're 
watching out! 

Video Halloween 

By E.D. Wengryn 

This past Saturday night DVC hosted 
their traditional Halloween Dance The 
night began at 9:00 p.m with most peo- 

. pie dressed up and ready to get down at 
the Video Dance. The night was warm 
and many of the costumes were too hot. 
but everyone was having fun . There were 
people dressed up with all different out- 

; fits. You had your vampires, devils, ghouls 
of all sorts along with scarecrows. Cindy 
Laupher (her groupies) . clowns, dwarves, 
fairy godmothers, wood elves, and even 
a librarian The winner of the costume 
contest — a tie with Tim Ireland as a 
ballerina — God knows where he got the 
tutu and Brian Breneman as a rabbit (a 
few of the girls thought he would make a 
cute playgirl bunny) . Other competition 
was a sexy sister (no nuns like that in my 
days at Sunday school) and a little white 
angel. The group that showed the videos 
while we danced was pretty good, show- 
ing such videos as Duran Duran's Reflex. 
Cindy Laupher's She-Bop. Michael Jack- 
son's Thriller, and Wham's Wake Me up 
before You Go Go. Other videos were 
by Billy Idol. Van Halen, Kenny Loggins. 
and many more. The only disappoint- 
ment of the night was that Mrs. Feldstein 
didn't have all of her cakes and cookies 
done and we all had to wait until Wed- 
nesday. Otherwise the night could be 
called a success.

The Delaware Valley College football 
Aggies left for Madison. New Jersey on 
Friday afternoon with the intention of not 
letting their losing streak run to three 

In what looks like the last DVC — FDU 
football game (FDU dropped out of the 
Middle Atlantic Conference to schedule 
more competitive independent schools) 
for quite a while, the Aggies (4-4, 3-3) 
evened up their record with a 14-6 victory. 

The Aggies took an early 7-0 lead 
when Nick Russo capped off a 70-yard 
drive with a 1-yard touchdown run. Russo 
finished the night with 148 yards on 28 

Brian Breneman made it 14-0 before 
the half ended when he hauled in a 7-yard 
pass from Gary Kemberling (9-24-167 
yards) for a touchdown. 

The Aggies shut out FDU until the final 
play of the game when Greg Rutter 
scored on a 1-yard touchdown reception 
to avoid the goose egg. 

Del Val hosts a tough Lycoming team 
tomorrow at 1:30 p.m before closing 
out the season next Saturday, at home, 
against Wilkes College. 


By Duke Blessing 

The Delaware Valley College soccer 
team traveled to Drew University last 
Saturday and were soundly defeated. 8 I. 
The loss drops their record to 1-11 

Rich Hallowell scored the lone Aggie 
goal off an assist from Rich Berger. 

The team concludes their season at 
home tomorrow against Wilkes College' 
at 11:00 a.m. 

Double Spike, Go for it!

The girls ended their season with a lose 
to Moravian on Thursday night. Thi'^ 
gave the Lady Aggies a 6-9 overall 
record, and 2-3 in the league. The only 
player that is leaving is senior Sheryl 
Henry. She is a 4-letterer and was a key 
defensive hitter during her four years at 
Del Val. She will be missed next year. 
Our two juniors also had very good 
seasons. Co-captains Michele Heffner 
and Chris LeFevre made an excellent 
team. Chris, despite a mid-season injury, 
had a very productive year. Chris was 
our top hitter and also excellent defen- 
sive player. Michele "Babe" Heffner was 
our setter and really showed us some 
new moves with her dink techniques. 
Vicki Keener, our sole sophomore varsi- 
ty player, also improved greatly. Her set- 
ting has improved and she has also been 
a good aggressive player. Freshmen 
Sharon Chapman and Marion Alberici 
also helped out. Junior Varsity had a 
good showing too. Carole Gwynne helped 
out varsity during Chris' injury Overall, 
the girls had a much improved season. 
You girls should \x proud. A big thanks 
to all our loyal fans, especially Ray. 
Thanks for all the good times everyone. 
Next year!

the Shower" Month! 

Caesar's is a Super Success!!!!! 

{ Well, that's putting it mildly! On Thurs- 
day, November 1, the DVC Snack Bar 
was transformed into a pub-like atmos- 
phere with posters, streamers, soft lights, 
and music! It was the opening night of 
Caesar's Pub and DVC sure gave it a 
smashing start. In fact, the only thing that 
was missing was the alcohol and I'm sure 
that not too many people noticed its 
absence . 

The music was excellent and many 
people didn't stop moving throughout 
the entire evening. The dance floor re- 
mained packed the whole night. As for 
the non-alcoholic drinks, they were deli- 
cious! Both the dacquiris and the pina 
coladas were quite refreshing after danc- 
ing up a sweat (and I mean that literally!) 
The non-alcoholic beer was definitely en- 
joyable and 1 never missed the alcohol 
that wasn't in it. Of course you can't 
forget about the soda and that good ol' 

DVC cider. The munchies on the table 
were a good idea and were very much 
enjoyed. The overall atmosphere couldn't 
have been better. 

As for attendance, the total number 
that passed through the door was 472, 
almost twice what was expected! The 
overall idea for the pub was to give peo- 
ple something to do on a Thursday 
evening and 1 would say that this was 
accomplished with much success. 

Congratulations to the RA's and Stu- 
dent Government for this very successful 
evening. A big thanks also goes to Thirsty's 

To those of you who missed the pub. 
have no fear, it will return again this 
semester! Next time you see an ad for 
Caesar's, volunteer some time, get in- 
volved, and by all means, make sure you 
are there for this gala event.

Aggie Runners Place 

by Duke Blessing % « 

The Aggies finished lOth out of 24 
teams Saturday in the MAC aoss-country 
championships at Fort Indiantown Gap. 

Susquehanna won the title with a 
team total of 88 points while the Aggies 
finished the afternoon with 261 points. 

Archbishop Wood graduate Tom 
Reynolds was the first DVC runner to 
reach the tape, taking 35th place with a 
time of 25:40. 

He was followed by teammates Ken 
McDaid (38th. 27:11). Al Krousc {57th. 
27:42). John Thomson (58th, 27:47). 
Rob Benner (73rd. 27:57). Dave Spotts

Next up for the Aggies will be the 
NCAA Regional Qualifying Meet, which 
will be held at the same location again 
next weekend. 


Dear Editors % 

Dear Editors, 

I extend an open invitation to any ad- 
ministrator who would like to spend a 
night in a dorm. Maybe then they could 
see, hear, and believe the problems that 
occur in a dorm on weekend nights. 
These problems go on time after time, 
because of the ineffectiveness of this col- 
lege's Residence Life Office and Dean of 
Students' Office to enforce the school's 
policies and punishments for vandalism, 
inappropriate behavior, false alarms, and 
drunkenness in these dorms. * 

If administrators can not or will not en- 
force these rules, then these rude stu- 
dents will continue to cause hassle after 

I feel it's about time the Residence Life 
Office, etc.. start backing up these rules 
with some action against these students. 

If this lack of action keeps up. then it's 
no wonder that this college has an in- 
crease in vandalism, false alarms, and 
uncalled for rowdiness in the dorms. 

The buck has to STOP somewhere.

Aggies Embarrassed by 
Lycoming, 42-7 

by Duke Blessing 

If in a "for amusement only" pool, 
DVC was getting 10 points, at home, 
against a Lycoming team that had lost to 
Upsala (whom the Aggies crushed 27-7), 
I would have bet the savings account, the 
mortgage, and the diploma. 
I % ^ihsiderlng that the Aggies were 
healthy and a lot was at stake for the 
seniors, most followers felt that the game 
played on the field, without any point- 
spreads, would finish with DVC on top. 

Thank God that there are no "pools" 
on Division III games because I would 
now be poor, homeless, and uneducated 
after betting it all on what I thought was a 
sure win. 

The Aggies (4-5, 3-4) must beat Wilkes 
College tomorrow just to finish with a 
.5(X) record. This turn of events is due to 
a 42-7 thrashing at the hands of Lycom- 
ing College, the worst defeat since 1976 
when the Aggies were whipped by Al- 
bright. 35-0 (in the days when DVC was 
expected to lose) . 

. • When Gary Kemberling (8-23-62 yds.) 
hit junior Brian Breneman with a 2-yard 
touchdown pass in the first quarter, the 
Aggies took a 7-0 lead . Soon after, disas^ 
ter struck and struck again. •'?'■■ ■ 

Lycoming scored 42 unanswered points 
the rest of the game as the Aggies went 
under the .500 mark for the season. 

On 27 attempts. DVC could only 
muster 48 yards rushing and finished the 
day with a slight 119 total yards. 

Defensively, the Warriors shredded 
the Aggies like a La Machine as they 
rushed an incredible 59 times for 277 
yards and passed for another 181 yards 
— for a whopping 458 total yards! 

The Aggies close out the season 
tomorrow against Wilkes College, game 
time at 1:30 p.m.

By Duke Blessing 

The DVC soccer team saw its season 
mercifully come to an end as they drop- 
ped their final three games, all at home, 
to finish the year with a 1-14 record. 
- The Aggies opened up the season los- 
%\Q seven in a row. They won their first 
and only game of the season against 
Kings on Homecoming Day and then 
lost their last seven games of the season 

DVC was defeated by Washington

fb«. TEoCTM.^w^&TlCC AMA ^C^C 9mMII MAS. 


PeeWee and his gang are back in this 
sequel to the hit movie Porky's. Porky's 
2 follows them through the next day after 
the first movie ended. They were up to 
their old antics playing tricks on "Miss 
Ballbreaker." Now the guys are trying to 
put on Shakespeare and having trouble 
from Reverend Flavor, who's attempting 
to shut down the production of the play 
under moral reasons. The Ku Klux Klan 
is mistreating an Indian teenager and the 
boys comes to his aid and get their 
r .'venge. 

The movie is fair, not as good as the 
original. But, it's worth a look if you 
don't have much to do.

Election "84^ 

Was It Any Big Surprise? 

By ED. Wenyryn 

For those of you who cion't know, 
Ronald Rt^ayan was rt'-t'li'ck'd President 
of tlu' L)nitt>d States. With more than 
ri8% of tlif popular vote. Mr Reayan 
will continue to serve this country as 
fVsident. The Republican Party knew 
Reayan was yoiny to win. and win biy, 
and niativ Republican candidates hoped 
that his win would mean a win for them, 

The Republican Partv expected to cap- 
ture back the 2b seats thev lost in the 
house in 19(S2. and to add a few more to 
it. with the way the presidential campaiyn 
looked it was almost a reality The Rea- 
yan win went as far as. Reayan The Re- 
pubicans can iv\(\ onlv lb more seats \o 
the house, little more than half of what 
thev expected In the race for Senate 
seats Republicans lose two; the Senate 
now stands at 53 Republicans and 47

A Human Beiny 

The only plus for Reayan came in 
yovernorships the Republican Party now 
has 17 yovernorships to the Democrats 
Xi (a net yain of two) . Other surprises in 
the elections show that the US is not 
ready for women in politics. 65 women 
ran for house seats (20 incumbants): 2'A 
wotnen will serve in Conyress. When it 
comes to the Senate and yovernorships 
no woman who ran won. Cierakfine Fer- 
raro was no number swayer 

Ail in all this election year set the staye 
for America's future. As both parties 
have to recover from their losses or lack 
of yains. thev must redefine themselves. 
Atrierica is chanyiny. and the political 
ideas that shape the parties must chanye 
also. The youny voter is no lonyer lH-22

A Day of Conifers 

by Bill Rein 

On Saturday. DVC hosted the Mid- 
Atlantic Regional Meeting of the Ameri- 
can Conifer Society. It was a "first" for 
the college', and a "must" for anyone in- 
terested in landscaping or uncommon 
dwarf evergreens — their propagation, 
care, and effectiveness in the landscape. 
The day was filled with enlightening 
talks, beautiful slides from around the 
world (and hidden places nearby), and 
trips to local sights which incorporate 
dwarf and "tall" conifers in their busi- 
ness and in their landscaping. Our own 
Mr. Frederick Ray was the meeting 

It all started with a slide show tour 
through Germany and the Netherlands, 
through their conifer arboreta, a collec- 
tion made by Dr. Seik of our OH, 
department. In this talk "Conifers in 
Europe," he explained that some of the 
specimens which were only chest-high 
were about 20 years old! It illustrated the 
"dwarfness" of these plants — many of 
which came from Switzerland, where a 
mountainous climate results in dwarfness. 

According to the treasurer of the 
American Conifer Society, Mr Bill 
Schwartz, most of the rare cultivars do 
produce good viable seed — and he 
showed us a collection of "aberrant 
seedlings" (like tricolor pines) to prove 
tlie point. In fact, he actually took a pine 
cone and showed us how to extract the 
seed from it with a pair of snips! From 
these seeds come potentially worthwhile 
new cultivars. 

The program even answered the ques- 
tion. "How do 1 grow conifers if I have 
shade to deal with?" Mr. David Benner. 
who especially has learned to deal with 
his own home landscape located "on the 
north side of a north -facing slope," 
pointed out 20 conifers which he has had 
success with from a list of about 1 14 
evergreens he currently cares for. 

In connection with this, Mr. Bill Wells. 
a landscape contractor and charter mem- 
ber of the ACS. immediately emphasized 
that while these unusual conifers are ter- 
rific in themselves, the real question is 
"How can they ultimately be used in the 
landscape?" He said he looks at the rows 
and rows in these nurseries and his 
"mouth waters" when he thinks about 
"their color, texture — where they could 
generate lots of interest." Mr Wells 
showed slides of flowing beds of varied 
coniferous forms which he and others 
designed and added some slides depict- 
ing how not to landscape! 

The lectures culminated in slides of an 
estate full of beds and beds of so many 
varieties, "sports." and unnamed 
"sports" that they filled a twenty-five 
page pamphlet of small print in Rarafiora 
and other treats by Mr Ray. Raraflora 
was once an estate owned and created 
by a Mr. Fred Bergman and his wife, 
whose years of design, culture, and 
development of thousands of conifer 
cultivars may be unexcelled by an other 
single landscape. A definite hidden trea- 
sure, the Bergman estate was once called 
"the world's largest collection of dwarf 
and slow-growing conifers ... a nursery 
for the connoisseur . . of particular in- 
terest to collectors of rare plants and bon- 
sai enthusiasts . . "by Cad Hahn in a 
Washington Star article and was a fitting 
conclusion to an informative lecture

What do you get when you put college 
kids on ice'^ Well, you get a lot of sore 
ankles, sore feet, but most of all — FUN! 

On Thursday njgh*. =^ good sized group 
of student took out -heir frustrations on 
the ice. With a full toad of students, the 
DVC van left the campus at 8 p.m. and 
headed to Meiody Brook Rink. Once 
there, the group rented skates and had a 
terrific time. 

Once on the ice, some hung on to the 
wall while others showed their talent. 
The rink was full of skaters, then the ice 
was turned over to the "Flyers." The 
hockey players played a vigorous game, 
but there were no injuries. Then the ice 
was gratefully turned back to the ama- 
teur ice skaters. Once ten o'clock arrived, 
the lights were turned off and the skaters 
went home, having had a good time. 

I hope to see another night like this in 
the future! ,

Celtics Win 

on Refs Decision 

by Duke Blessing 

Retaliate: 1. to return the like for. repay 
2. to inflict in return 

- ■ "Attention all TRUE fans of Philadel- 
phia Sixers Basketball." The Date" i** 
December 12. 1984. The Time - 7:35 
p.m. The Place — The Philadelphia 
Spectrum. The Event — Round Two! 

When Larry Bird and his merry band 
of hatchet men come to the Spectrum in 
a few weeks, they had better be sporting 
their best artillery and hard hats I will be 
ifi the cheap seats along with about 3.(KK) 
other crazies armed with silver and cop- 
per currency, and array of Wilson golf 
balls and Spalding hard balls, and a pea 
shooter with scope vision. 

About the game, all that matters is that 
Larry Bird messed with the incomparable 
Julius Erving. Hitting Dr. J. is even crazier 
and will have more co!isequences than 
attempting to kill the President of the 
United States. 

When Dr. <J was punched, tens of thou- 
sands of Philly fans felt the impact of the 
blow through their television sets and 
radios. Not that the Doc needs it but on 
December 12. his 18.276 personal bodv- 
guards will let loose on their own seek- 
and-destrov mission. 

Nobody throws things at Billy C. de- 
mon Johnson, and the entire Sixers 
bench and gets away with it! 

Nobody cheap-shots the Sixers and 
expects to walk away from it healthv! 

The Celtics should be advised to forfeit 
the next game unless their idea of fun is 
to watch each other go dowti. one by 
one. under the weight of 18,276 seeth- 
ing, foaming, fang-bearing loonies! 

This all could have been easily avoided 
if Larry Bird had even the slightest frac- 
tion of sportsmanship and class that Julius 
Erving has displayed throughout his il- 
lustrious career. 

Now. as one of the biggest Philadel- 
phia fans of all time. I have heard the 
calling to take part in a war on December 
12 and serve my city and the greatest 
sports legend of all time. I will be there 
armed and dangerous, vocally abusive, 
and ready to take aim on the most inspired 
revenge game in modern time. The 
Spectrum security had better strip-search 
all spectators that night because the air 
will be filled with flying objects on a direct 
path towards the visitors' bench. 

Boston, you have won round one. but 
round two will be ours on a TKO! 

Hey Red. Larry. ML. — we'll be wait- 
ing for you on the 12th. and please, 
don't stand us up!

Aggies Smash 
Hapless Wilkes, 41-0 

by Duke Blessing 

"We'll have to play a heck of a game 
to beat Wilkes. They'll come down here 
smelling blood." Aggies head coach Al 
Wilson iTiade this statement prior to the 
ipeason finale against Wilkes college last 
Saturday at James Work Memorial 

I find only one problem with this state- 
ment — Del Val was not scheduled to 
play the Nebraska Corn buskers, or for 
that matter, the Widener Pioneers. We 
are talking about a football team that was 
winless in all seven attempts this year. 
Wilkes came into the contest with a 0-6- 1 
league record. The onlv thing that I can 
ascertaiji out of this exaggerated statement 
is that psychological warfare exists even 
on the Division III level. 

The Aygies wound up closing the 
1984 season on a resounding note bv an- 
nihilating defenseless Wilki's. 4L(). The 
game, for all practical purposes was over 
at halftime as Del Val ran off to a 2L()

Dear Editors 

Dear l.ditors. 

There are manv things which we m'ei] 
around this campus hut what we don't 
need is students who write lettiTs to the 
editors criticizing the actions of other 
students without backing up their words 
We do not need studi'iits who write letters 
and sign their name to them siinplv to (ji't 
the recognition and possiblv a couple f)f 
pats on the hack. The best way to fi'at h 
others and chanqe their atfitudi's is 
through good example not siinplv words. 
The words mean nothing if the person 
who writes them does not hack them up 
So. AH. the next time vou get the urge- 
to throw thinys in the cafeteria rememhei ; 
"We're vvatching vou!" ■■

Drinking Age Battle Isn't Over Yet 

Location of Garden 

![)amage Done to 
New Garden ^ 

by Bill Rein ''i-''':'^'''-''^:':''-''''.t,,-''/^'^'- 

The new triangular planting between 
Work and Ulman Halls is another victim 
of destruction on campus. What is 

Three purple weeping beech trees 
valued at a little less than $100 each 
were planted in the triangular area 
formed between three driveways next to 
Work Hall, during Homecoming week. 
Alumnus Nate Moser '32 had donated 
money to the college for the trees. 
Rather than allowing the trees to be 
planted "anywhere," Mr. Ray, of the 
Ornamental Horticulture department, 
proposed to place them together, specifi- 
cally to protect them from the "problem 
driving" which seems to plague our cam- 
pus. Keeping these unusual dwarf trees 
together in one group planting also gives 
a sort of showcase effect, as opposed to 
planting them separately around the 

However, poor driving has not posed 
a problem. It was only a few days after 
their planting when someone decided to 
snap off one tree at the soil line. At the 
same time, the others were loosened at 
their roots; and, across campus at the 
dwarf conifer garden behind the library, 
a specimen awaiting transplanting was 
dragged across the newly seeded area 
around the greenhouse complex, and 
left in the cafeteria parking lot. Then, a 
few weeks later, a second weeping beech 
was pulled right out of the soil. What is 
the purpose of blowing someone's 
donated money for the heck of it? 

Mr. Ray noted that the project has 
already had a sad history before it even 
got in the ground! One of the original 
three beeches was stolen from the lath 
house last spring. Together, the damages 
add up to us, the students who enjoy the 
campus surroundings, paying for all 
three trees. This complicates the fact that 
many have complained that our land- 
scaping is "not what it should be for a 
college of science and agriculture." 

Nonetheless. Mr. Ray has maintained 
that, "Department philosophy is that the 
trees will be maintained . 'We will not be 
deterred . . . from continuing the pro- 
ject," which will include planting a com- 
patible groundcover for the entire garden

Those who think a national 21 -year- 
old drinking age will become a fact by 
1986 may soon have to think again. 
Though federal legislation seems bent on 
forcing the states into adopting higher 
drinking age laws by withholding 10% of 
their federal highway tax money if they 
don'', a number of observers think some 
states won't comply. They'll be forfeiting 
big bucks if they refuse — a total of $22 
million for Wisconsin in 1986 and 1987, 
for example — but some analysts say the 
lost highway taxes will still be less than 
projected losses in taxes and fees asso- 
ciated with liquor sales. 

For students, however, the point is 
justice, not money. Bob Bingaman, 
spokesman for the United States Student 
Association, says the law is patently 
wrong-headed and student associations 
across the country are gearing up to 
make their state legislatures understand 
that. "On a gut level, 1 think it's a civil 
rights issue," he says. "How can you tell 
this age group. 'You can vote. You can 
sue and be sued. You can marry. You 
can serve in the military, but you can't 
drink!? It's absurd!" 

Bingaman says his group and others 
are considering a constitutional challenge 
to the law in court. The 25th Amend- 
ment reserves control of alcohol to the 
states, and critics see the coming battle 
over the drinking age as a states' right 
issue. ; ^ ; 

At the U. of Texas-Austin, Rodney 
Schlosser. student body president, says 
he expects the battle to break there in 
January. "1 don't want to let the whole 
world know about all our bullets before 
we shoot them." he says, but suggests 
the students' general plan of attack will 
include lobbying, educational efforts, 
and the drafting of positive, alternative 

DWI laws the answer? 

Schlosser points to the fact that Minne- 
sota's traffic fatalities increased four-fold 
after raising its drinking age to 19. Teens 
had no trouble getting liquor, but took to 
the dangerous and boring privacy of their 
cars to drink it. It was only when Minne- 
sota passed stiff driving-while-intoxicated 
or DWI laws that traffic fatalities began to 

That's the kind of legislation Schlosser 
has in mind, and, in fact, the Texas Stu- 
dent Lobby has been on record behind 
tougher DWI laws for the last two years. 
"We would like to have positive DWI 
legislation ready to go in January so 
legislators can vote for something instead 
of just having to vote against the 21- 
year-old law," he says. Schlosser expects 
no trouble in mobilizing massive student 
support for these efforts. The law, he 
says, has raised their consciousness 
more than any other issue in the last ten 
years because it directly touches their 
lives as defense spending and other 
issues don't.

M\^stic Mountains of the Plains 


Saturday, December 8, 1984 
8:00 P.M. 

The Dakota Plains are the home for 
bison, pronghoms, prairie dog, elk, 
bear, and once the Sioux and Cheyenne 

At the U. of Wisconsin -Eau Claire, 
president of the student body Randy 
Curtis says they're trying to mobilize the 
support of private business in fighting the 
new law. Students have blanketed the 
supermarkets in town and all the bars on 
Water St. with petitions, and they're 
stumping for a public awareness club 
called "I am driving." Participating bar 
owners agree to provide free, non- 
alcoholic drinks to club members who, in 
turn, act as chauffeur for the drinking 
members of their group. Memberships 
cost nothing and participation, says Cur- 
tis, is high. 

Meanwhile, two researchers at Boston 
U. are lending their support to the under- 
21 -year-olds. Research by Robert Smith 
and Ralph Hingson in the School of 
Behavioral Science suggests that raising 
the drinking age has no effect on overall 
traffic deaths or on the drinking habits of 
teenagers. "1 think teenagers have been 
unfairly singled out," says Smith. 

Smith and Hingson studied fatal 
crashes in the three-year period after 
Massachusetts raised its drinking age 
from 18 to 20 and compared those pat- 
terns with New York which did not raise 
its legal drinking age. They found New 
York fatalities declined almost as much 
as Massachusetts. Moreover, there was 
no reduction among 16- and 17-year- 
olds, the group primarily targeted by the 
new law. 

Conclusions faulty . ■ 
; The Boston researchers have serious 
reservations about the conclusions Con- 
gress drew from the study it looked at in 
drafting the 21 -year-old drinking age 
law. That study looked at statistics from 
nine states which raised their drinking 
ages, and found a 28% reduction in 
single- vehicle, nighttime crashes (those 
most associated with alcohol). But the 
survey found only an 11% reduction in 
overall crashes — a percentage statisti- 
cians say could be accounted for by 
chance variation. As Hingson puts it: 
"They have 'suggestive data' but not 
'conclusive evidence." 

The Smith-Hingson study included an 
opinion survey as well, and from the 
answers to those questions, they con- 
clude that attacking teenage drunk driv- 
ing through such punitive legislation may 
simply foster cynicism toward the legisla- 
tive process and a disregard of law en- 
forcement. At best, raising the drinking 
age to 21 would reduce fatal traffic 
crashes by 2%, or 1.500 lives a year. 

Ironically, solid data exists to prove 
that mandatory seat-belt and airbag laws, 
which Congress has deferred until 1989, 
would reduce fatalities 15% to 30% or a 
minimum of 15,000 to 20,000 lives. 
Also, says Hingson, passive restraints do 
not require enforcement to be effective 
as do both higher-drinking-age and DWI 

Indians. Why are they called the Black 
Hills? Allen King gives the answer, along 
with intimate film interpretations of the 
regions engrossing wilderness creatures 
and the mysteries and wonders surround- 
ing their survival. This program will be 
held at the Council Rock Intermediate 
School. Swamp Road and Route 332.

At the DVC Cafeteria! 

Well, it's almost hard to believe, isn't 
it? On November l5, several members 
of Student Government, the Ram Pages 
editors, and administration were treated 
to a superb meal at the VIP dinner. This 
event is produced by the M.W. Wood 
Company, the company that handles 
our food service, to provide students and 
administration with some knowledge of 
our food service. 

Our evening began with sparkling 
cider, old-fashioned lemonade, and 
some out-of-this-world appetizers such 
as barbecued oysters and herbed chicken 
and bacon. Oysters in the cafeteria? — 
you bet, and they were delicious! We 
then proceeded to our tables where we 
were shown a video tape on soups. Our 
theme for the evening was "Great Soups, 
Great Food, An American Tradition," 
and everyone learned how to make 
soup. In fact, every table made a dif- 
ferent soup and everyone received a 
sample of each soup. The four soups 
that we made were Nantucket scallop 
chowder, vegetable beef soup, country 
cheddar soup, and last but not lea t. Dr. 
Feldstein's favorite, chilled cherry soup. 
This was just the beginning of our meal. 

When our dinner plates were brought 
out, what was on the plate was unbeliev- 
able. We were served a country baked 
potato which was cut into a spiral, 
garden patch vegetables (a baked tomato 
stuffed with broccoli and cauliflower), 
and finally a thick, juicy piece of char- 
broiled tenderloin steak which could cut 
easily with a DVC table knife. Yummm*- 
delicious! To top all of this off, we finr 
ished with homemade vanilla ice cream 
and fresh apple tart. 

The entire meal was delectable and a 
good time was had by all in attendance. 
Everyone learned a lot about M.W. 
Wood and ate enough for a couple 
meals. Thanks M.W. Wood and Mr. 
Moyer for great food and a good time. . 

Piano Recital 

On Wednesday, November 14 Asso- 
ciate Professor Shirley Batchelor. Trenton 
State College, performed for the music 
appreciation class during the third period. 
These are some comments written by the 
students in the class. "Shirley Batchelor 
entertained us with a memorable exhibi- 
tion on the piano. Sometimes she played 
soft music and at other times her music 
was at a faster beat and you could kind of 
sing to it. She played selections by Bach. 
Brahms, and Mendelssohn — the theme 
being centered around a fantasy. At 
times the class listened with great atten- 
tion because her music was so good and 
various in selection. Mrs. Batchelor is 
indeed an expert in her field." (Bob 
D'Ginto) "Her performance was to be 
commended greatly — she played as if 
the composers themselves were actually 
playing the pieces. The live performance 
greatly clarified the composers' types of 
music and gave a better understanding of 
what the composers were trying to com- 
municate." (Rodnei; Good) "Mrs. Batch- 
elor broke down the parts of the music 
and showed us how they were formed 
and them put together to make the piece 
what it is today." (Daue Dallmer) "Watch- 
ing her perform in class, showed me how 
much talent it takes to perform the way 
she did." (Mike O'Hanlon) These are 
only a few of the comments of the class 
which expresses our appreciation to 
Mrs. Batchelor for a beautiful lecture/

"Area's Cheapest Takeout" 

Rt. 202 • New Britain. PA 

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

I'm responding to the Dear Editor letter 
that was printed in the November 16th 
issue, if it was referring to me, which I 
think it was, I think it was very unneces- 
seiry and made no sense to any of the 
subjects that had been written, saying it 
was meaningless. 

First of all my letters were all directed 
to the entire student body for the actions 
of a few of them. All the letters 1 have 
written have been of much needed im- 
provements and have all the backing up 
they need. 1 would like to see other stu- 
dents write letters of concern and see if 
they have the guts to sign such a letter, 
not like the person who wrote that letter. 
If 1 needed a pat on the back or recogni- 
tion 1 would not go and write good letters 
of interest for it. I don't want anything but 
better conditions on this campus. If we 
had more concerned students on campus, 
things might get done and it would make 
it a better place to stay. Many students 
come to me with certain things and if 1 
hear enough of one problem I'll go and 
write an editorial letter about it. We did 
get more garbage cans, cleaner dorms, 
and a little cleaner campus all because of 
letters that have been written in the past. 
Now if you feel I need a pat on the back, 
come over and give me one. 1 feel if I'm 
living here for eight months or so I feel I 
should have the best for my money. 

Second of all, everything said in those 
letters is backed up. I'd like to see how 
many people would and do just walk 
over and around or kick trash. If you put 
them where they belong in the first place 
we wouldn't have this problem. 1 know 
you don't throw garbage on your yard. I 
know I don't, I only throw paper balls in 
my kitchen where it is cleaned up, just 
like our cafe. 

All I'm looking for is a little more con- 
sideration and help from our student 
body as a whole to do things about these 
problems on campus. All these problems 
should be faced by student government 
and solved. Writing letters and signing 
them has proven to help things for the 
better. There are so many people who 
throw things in our cafe and when I toss 
a few rolled napkins some person who 
cares gets bent out of shape. This person 
who cares doesn't care enough to sign 
their name but care enough to write a let- 
ter which has no point and nothing to 
back it up. Until I see the point in that let- 
ter I'm just letting it pass.

Oh God You Devil 

by Rosemary Kluth 

Oh God You Devil is definitely an ex- 
perience. It gets its viewers involved, 
they really care what's going to happen. 
Oh God You Devil is worth seeing. It has 
much more to say than the other Oh 
God movies, its message is one you 
won't forget. 

Oh God You Devil was not what I ex- 
pected at all. If you, like me go expecting 
to be rolling in the aisles laughing, you'll 
be disappointed; it was far too serious to 
be hilarious. There were funny moments 
though and George Burns plays a great 
devil. The character is so well played that 
you can really hate him and root for his 

So go see Oh God You Devil, you'll 
be glad you did.

New Library Catalog 

The card catalog in the Joseph Kraus- 
kopf Memorial Library has a new look. 
After five weeks of work by library per- 
sonnel and student aides, the "Catalog in 
Transition" signs have come down and 
the restructured catalog is ready to use 

The catalog has been divided so that 
there is one catalog for subject heading 
entries and one for authors and titles. 

Students using the catalog are very 
often searching by subject headings 
With the reorganization this type of search 
is less confusing because there are no in- 
tervening author or title entries to inter- 
rupt the alphabetical flow of subject 
headings. And if a person is looking for a 
specific title or author, the new arrange- 
ment enables that person to locate the in- 
formation faster and more easily because 
he doesn't have to plow through all the 
subject headings to find the information . 

The drawers containing subject entries 
have yellow guide labels while those with 
author and title entries have white label. 

Labeling of Campus Trees 

Delaware Valley College has not had 
a comprehensive tree labeling since its 
beginning, but now, under the guidance 
of the Ornamental Horticulture Depart- 
ment Chairman, Dr. John Martin, the 
Scene is changing. Within the last six 
months. Mr. Frederick Ray has been se- 
lected to coordinate the campus and 

Mr. Ray has chosen to use labeling sys- 
tem is based on educational and record 
needs. Each label has the botanical com- 
mon, and family names, and the place of 
origin. Further information given in the 
remarks section may include who the gift 
was given by, parentage (hybrid origin), 
or the hybridizer (Gabel Hybrid Rhodo- 
dendron). Finally, there is the accession 
number for record keeping. This lets one 
know what year the tree was planted and 
in what order, so as to identify the plant 
in the record keeping system. For exam- 
ple. 84-060; this shrub was planted or 
obtained in 1984 and was probably re- 
ceived in January since it has a low num- 
ber of 60. There may have been another 
purchase of a similar plant in July, but 
that would have a number probably in 
the three hundred area. Exact records of 
plants planted before the fall of 1981 are 
not easy to verifv: therefore, plants planted 
before that dare will not be given an ac- 
cession number, and even those will be 

Each labe' is attached to the plant on 
the sid«; nv^st easily observed along a 
path If thery is no obvious point of orien- 
tation, such as in a field, the label will be 
placed on the north side of the plant 
The labels are attached to each plant by a 
plastic coated copper wire that will be 
checked pen(xiically so it does not becomi^ 
embedded in the branch. On trees that 
have no lower branching, labels will he 
wired to stainless steel or coated screws 
that will be backed out of the trees on a 
schedule. This will prevent the bark from 
enveloping the label 

The addressograph machine used 
painted aluminum blanks, the exact size 
of a Sears credit card. Each label is 
stamped out by pulling the level mechani- 
cally: therefore^ each label may take sev- 
eral minutes to make. The cost of each 
label is about a dollar by the time it ap- 
pears on a tree This theoretical cost is 
based on the cost of the blank, wire, 
screws if needed, and staff time. 

The labels are color coded. At the pres- 
ent time, there are only two colors, 
orange, the color the Morris Arboretum 
uses, for trees and shrubs: and brown for 
herbaceous plants. The orange color was 
chosen because it can be readily seen a 
tree or hidden in the growth of a shrub. It 
was decided that orange was too bright 
for herbaceous plants, whose foliage 
may die to the ground each winter and 
look like a sea of bright color; therefore, 
an innocuous brown was chosen. 

The labeling of the trees was done for 
many reasons. Among those reasons are: 
to bring the college up to the standards 
seen at other colleges that teach horticul- 
ture, and even some that don't, i.e. Prince- 
ton University and Swarthmore College; 
to aid students in the plant identification 
courses outside of the Ornamental Hor- 
ticulture department, such as Biology. 
Botany. Taxonomy. Dendrology, and 
Silviculture. The more obvious students 
to benefit would be the ones in the Or- 
namental Horticulture department taking 
basic and advanced woody plant identifi- 
cation, and the herbaceous plant identi- 
fication course, which includes annuals, 
perennials, and bulbs. In addition to ben- 
efitting several departments of the college, 
the labeling adds credibility to our pro- 
gram when professionals visit the college 
while attending meetings. Prospective 
students and their parents will see that 
we are serious about our commitment to

Number One Team 
in the State 

by Duke Blessing 

On Thanksgiving Day, Central Bucks 
West of Doylestown finished their season* 
a perfect 10-0-0 with a 28-0 whitewash 
of their crosstown rival, Central Bucks 

Over 13,000 people jammed into 
James Work Stadium to watch the annual 
rivalry, one of the best in the state. 

The Bucks wound up scoring 317 
points (31.7 average) and giving up only 
21 points (2.1 average) in a rebuilding 
year — not too bad!

A Tribute to a Hockey 
and Philadelphia Legend 

By Duke Blessing 

As a sports fanatic, especially where 
Philadelphia teams arc involved, I will 
• never forget Thursday evening, November 
15, 1984. But it did not take a fellow fa- 
natic to realize that this night was going 
to be more special than most and that it 
was going to be the type of evening that 
would be talked about for years and 
passed throughout generations. 

What was surprising dealt with the 
quality of the overall production — a 
stellar performance by the entire Flyer 

In a tear-jerking, heart-throbbing, 
proud-to-be-a-Philadelphian send-off. 
Bobby Clarke Night touched every person 
both at the Spectrum and those in the 
television audience. 

More moving than "Brian's Song" and 
"Something for Joey" and as monumental 
as the Phillies and Sixers World Cham- 
pionships. Bobby Clarke Night should be 
buried in a sports time capsule for future 
generations to enjoy. 

The voice of the Flyers, Gene Hart, 
opened the ceremony which started with 
a video sequence that showed Clarke as 
a child and followed him through two 
Stanley Cup Championships, his appear- * 
ance on Team Canada vs. the Soviets 
and film clips of his 300th goal and 
l.OOCXh point. ;, 

The most spine-chilling point of tflie 
video (shown by giant television screens 
on each side of the center-ice scoreboard) 
was the replay of Clarke's overtime goal 
in Game 2 of the 1974 finals with the 
Boston Bruins, and his trip around the 
Spectrum that year with the Stanley Cup 
over his head. 

If not stopped by Gene Hart after the 
five-minute mark, the eardrum-ringing 
standing ovation may have lasted until 
New Year's Eve! 

The Flyers organization unveiled a sur- 
prise gift — "The Bobby Clarke Trophy" 
— a bronze sculpture of Clarke's mem- 
orable leap after scoring the overtime 
go^l in the 1974 Stanley Cup finals with 
the Boston Bruins. The presented gifts to 
Clarke's entire family and then turned it 
over to Clarkey for the ending. 

The emotional Clarke, eyes filled with 
tears, thanked his family. Flyers owner 
Ed Snider, former general manager Keith 
Allen, and the Philadelphia fans for their 

in the last segment of the production. 
Hart asked the fans to join Kate Smith in 
the singing of the Flyers song — "God 
Bless America." 

It was at this point that I decided to 
watch the ending in privacy (like the part 
of the movie where Gale Sayers tells his 
fellow teammates that Brian Piccolo is 
dying or when Johnny Cap dedicates 
the Heisman to his dying brother Joey. 

A video of Kate Smith's final appear- 
ance, before a Flyers' playoff game, was 
flashed on the screen and the fans joined 
in a nostalgic and teary rendition of the 
team's famous good-luck song. ; 

On this memorable evening, the city 
of boobirds became the city of Brotherly 
Love, pouring out its heart to an athlete 
who never gave less than his best. 

Philadelphia may have the world's 

most demanding sports fans, but when 

inspired by the likes of a Bobby Clarke, 

; they are also the world's greatest and 

" most appreciative — it make me proud 

to be one! 

If Bobby Clarke does the job of general 

, manager with the guts and determination 

of his days as a player, the rest of the 

league should be warned — The Legend 

of Philadelphia Lives On! 

Olympians Score Sweep 
in Professional Debuts 

. By Duke Blessing 

In what was being promoted pnmaHy 
as Mark Breland's show, two of his fellow 
Olympians upstaged him as all six Olym- 
pic medalists on the card were victorious 
In the professional debuts at Madison 
Square Garden:;^ ^ 

Meldrick Taylor, of Philadelphia, scored - 
a frist-round technical knockout over 
Luke Lecce (14-3-1). Taylor displayed 
excellent hand speed and consistently 
threw jabs into Lccce's head and ribs. 
Taylor wound up taking Lecce out on a 
shot to the abdomen. 

Another lightweight. Pernell Whitaker 
handed Farrain Comeaux his first loss in 
ten fights as he struck with numerous 
lefts to the head of Comeaux and pound- 
ed him into submission as the fight ended 
at 2:50 of the second round. 

Breland won a six-round decision 
against stubborn Dwight Williams (7-2). 
Breland could not land a clean punch on 
Williams who kept his gloves over his 
face most of the fight but was battered 
with a barrage of body punches. . 

Light heavyweight Virgil Hill scored a 
second-round technical knockout against 
Arthur Wright (2-2) . A left hook to the 
face was the finishing touch. 

Light heavyweight Evander "I could 
not hear the ref" Holyfield scored a lop- 
sided six-round decision against Phila- 
delphia's Clark Byarm (9-2-2). Holyfield 
dominated throughout the fight with 
hand rights and left hooks but could not 
drop Byarm. 

Philadelphia's Tyrell Biggs won his 
heavyweight bout against Mike "You'll 
get your chance" Evans in a six-round 
decision. Biggs scored well with the jab 
but. as he did in Los Angeles, showed lit- 
tle power for a heavyweight. 

Congratulations to New Jersey-based 
promoter Lou Duva and his family for an 
entertaining evening!

The Editors' Desk: 

Following editorial policy to the fullest 
extent, it has been decided that the fol- 
lowing "Letters to the Editors" will be the 
last letters printed for all parties involved. 
We feel that enough has been publicly 
stated and it is now a personal problem 
among the people at hand. 

We would like to thank you for the let- 
ters that were submitted as they posedl 
great enjoyment for many people. 

We encourage continued student par- 
ticipation in editorials and anything else. 
that you would like to get involved with 
concerning Raw Pages. .. . 

Thank \jou. 
Co-editors-in chief

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

Maybe I should say dear Alan. The 
point of my last letter was that by signing 
your name to your letters you have singled 
yourself out . The reason I wrote my letter 
was simply to inform you that you should 
be more aware of your actions. Your let- 
ters of past have been very good and I 
too have noticed some well-needed 
changes which your letters may have, 
helped to bring about. But. by throwing 
things in the cafe, not only have you 
lowered yourself to the level of all the. 
other people that do the same but you' 
have offended me and others like me 
and in my mind your words of wisdom 
lose all meaning. How can someone 
care some of the time and not all of the 
time? So. maybe there are people who 
clean up the cafe, but what gives you the 
right to make their job more difficult than 
it already is? 

1 have not signed letters that 1 have 
written in the past because 1 do not feel 
that I am speaking only for myself. I also 
feel that a letter does not need to have a 
name attached to it in order for its mes- 
sage to be effectively relayed . I refer to a 
letter written in the October 12 issue 
which I signed "an embarrassed athlete." 
The letter was very well received and 
everyone 1 spoke to felt at least as strongly 
about the topic as I did. Not only that, 
but something was done about it. 

Whether or not I sign my name has 
nothing to do with how much I care. 
And, if my letter "had no point" then 
why did it upset you so? Not only did it 
have a point but I believe that it accom- 
plished what it was intended to accom- 
plish. The next time you go to throw 
something in the cafe, I feel certain that 
you will think twice before throwing it or 
at least consider picking it up after you've 
thrown it. 

Like you. I do pick up trash when I 
pass it and 1 thank you for making the 
walk to the nearest trash can shorter 
You have written letters about things that 
bother you. and trash and the appear 
ance of our "home" is a concern to manv 
of us. Not only is the cafe part of our 
campus but we must eat there Yes. it is 
cleaned daily, but so are our dorms. 
Does that make it alright for us to throw 
trash in the halls without picking it up — 1 
don't think so! 1 do not feel as though it 
takes "guts" to sign a letter. As 1 stated 
above, my past letters have not been 
signed because 1 felt that the concerns 
expressed were shared by many. 


L Ram Pages reserves the right to 
make any editorial changes in all 
material submitted for publication. 

2. Only signed material will be con* 
sidered for publication. Signatures 
will be withheld upon request. 

,3. Any material which is considered by 
the student editor(s) or faculty advisor 
to be potentially libelous will be inves- 
tigated and documented before con- 
sideration for publication. 

4. The writers of material in question 
: must certify sincerity of purpose and 

. ,, correctness of facts to the best of their 

5. The person (s) named or implied in 
the controversial material shall be in- 
formed of any article before publica- 
tion and shall be given the opportuni- 
ty to respond . 

I'm not saying that you are any worse 
than anyone else that throws stuff in the 
cafe. That is why 1 didn't write your 
name in my letter. 1 did not see the need 
of singling you out. I knew that you 
would get the message and just wanted 
to let you know that by signing your 
name to your letters about "cleaning up 
our home" you have singled yourself out 
and should set a good example at all 

times. , :_'-' .■..." .'<^U- ^''f ■ ^ 

While I'm writing, I'd like to thank all 
those involved in decorating the cafe this 
year. I've been here for four years now 
and must admit that this year must be 
one of the best. Good job! 

. ' V. .sj Thanks.

Dear Editors, 

In reply to your last letter in Ram 
Pages. 1 would like to direct this letter to 
Alan Hamann. First of all Alan, the good 
that reflects on this campus is not all in 
response from your editorial letters. 
Other students care also. Just because 
they don't write overrated, egotistical let- 
ters to the editor does not mean they 
care any less. Not everyone does things 
to demand or expect a "pat on the 
back " Second, Alan, on various occa- 
sions, myself, as well as others, have 
seen other than innocent napkin balls fly 
from your hands across the dining hall. 
You know, people wouldn't react with 
such vehemence towards youi" letters if 
you would just face up to your truths and 
get off your pedestal. 

Tish Duffy 

Dear Editors, 

I believe the other editorials that were 
pririted were OK and that's why I let 
them print them, to make them happy. 
But I still can't see the point to a harmless 
white, rolled up piece of paper that is 
tossed to a friend and no one else. This is 
nothing compared to the trays of trash 
left on the table. So T.I. and T.D. if you 
want you can keep the editorial battle go- 
ing, but over a rolled up napkin ball I see 
no point.

The ULTIMATE Challenge 
Met by Class of '86!!! 

Congratulations to the Class of 1986 
who successfully met The Ultimate 
Challenge on Wednesday, November 
28, 1984. The faculty, staff, and admini- 
stration dared any class to donate more 
pints of blood than they as DVC hosted 
its semi-annual Red Cross Blood Drive; 
Unfortunately, and to our great dismay, 
all were slaughtered by the junior class 
who bled a whopping 46 pints! For meet- 

V ing the challenge, the treasury of the 
Class of '86 will receive $92.00 as a gift 

.. from the Administration (that's $2.00 per 

■ pint contributed). 

The final results are as .follows: 
1st Place Class of '86 . ; ' 46 pints 
2nd Place Class of '88 v. 40 pints 
3rd Place Class of '87 • 37 pints 

. 4th Place Class of '85 34 pints 

Last Place Fac. Staff. Adm. 27 pints 

' , ^ Grand Total 184 pints 

■ Even though the red-blooded Class of 
'86 stole the show, we still fell short of 
our overall college goal of 200 pints. But 
we will not be daunted in our efforts to 
win! Another challenge will be issued for 
the spring blood drive — this time based 
on the highest percentage of each group 
donating blood. We of the faculty, staff, 
and administration feel that this is a much 
fairer way of computing the winner, 
since in terms of percentage, we would 
have come in second place behind the 

! Class of '86 with 15% of us donating 
blood! (17% of the junior class donated. 

- still keeping them in the Winner's Circle 
by all accounts.) • .• 

So bleeders . . . prepare for The Ulti- 
mate Challenge II! We want a rematch 

'; . _ vve will not give up so easily next time.

Aggies Capture Second Consecutive 
Tournament Ctiampionship 

By Duke Blessing 

Just like they did in last year's first Big 
Brothers of Bucks County Tip-Off Tour- 
nament, the Delaware Valley College 
men's basketball team had the good for- 
tune of drawing weak sister Beaver Col- 
lege as their first round opponent. 

The Aggies, who led by 10 points after 
the first half, switched into high gear and 
swallowed Beaver, 94-62. 

Dodd "Beast of the East" Walker led 
the team in scoring with 20 points and 
was also the Aggies leading rebounder 
with 14 boards. 

Other double-figure scorers included 
Darin "Pumpkin" Poindcxter with 14 
points (including a few rim-crushing slam 
dunks) and Chris Wilson with 10 points. 

The Aggies thus moved into the final 

game against Cabrini College. Cabrini 

defeated Spring Garden College, 87-75. 

jl^hind All- American John McQueen's 

21 points in the night's first game. 

In the final game, which resembled last 
year's game throughout. Cabrini got off 
to a quick start and it looked as though 
their experience (four seniors and three 
juniors) would wear down the inexperi- 
enced Aggies (15 freshmen, one sopho- 
more). , ^ , .: 

Cabrini jumped out to an 8-2lcatf as 
the Aggies looked slightly jittery. The Ag- 
gies hung tough and took their first lead 
of the game at 23-22, on a Chris Wilson 
20-footer. , ;— / .■'■ -^ * ^^^ 

The Aggies locked strong in the final 
minutes of the first half and went into in- 
termission with a 42-37 lead. 
. Del Val started the second half just like 
they did the first half and suddenly trailed. 

With nine minutes remaining. Cabrini 
held a 56-50 lead and started to play 
somewhat conservatively (much too ear- 
ly in the half to play that way). 

Eric Ford cut the lead to 56-52 with a 
15-foot jumper but for the next four min- 
utes. Cabrini played slow-down and kept 
a five point lead. 

Cabrini tied the game in the final 90 
seconds but that was as far as they would 
get. ■^::;:-K^_::&.- 

Big Bob Ort hit both ends of a one- 
and-one to give the* Aggies a 73-69 lead 
but John McQueen closed the gap with a 
pair of free throws with eight seconds 


By Duke Blessing 

It has recently been brought to my at- 
tention that members of the college com- 
munity have been lodging complaints 
about the sports section of Ram Pages. 
In defense of myself. I would like to ex- 
plain my stance. 

First of all. I comprise the entire staff. 
Nobody has offered their assistance (ex- 
cept for Joe Ferry) so nobody has the 
right to complain. 

During weeks when the Del Val sports 
scene is slow. I feel that it is appropriate 
to analyze the world of sports on both the

Marvin "Glue" Emerson hit the first 
end of a one-and-one to give the Aggies 
a 74-71 lead and with six seconds left, 
Chris Wilson rebounded a McQueen 
miss and was fouled. 

Wilson hit both free throws and the 
rest was history as the Aggies finished 
Cabrini. 76-71. 

Chris Wilson led the Aggies with 20 
points and was followed by Darin Poin- 
dexter's 17 points and Dodd Walker's 14 

Spring Garden captured third place by 
defeating Beaver. 86-72, behind Lee 
Radick's 21 points and also Dave Duda's 
20 points. 

The All-Tournament Team was as 

Most Valuable Player 
Del Val's Chris Wilson (15.0 a vg.) 
Del Val's Eric Ford (9,5 avg.) 
Cabrini's John McQueen (16.5 avg.) ^ ■ 
Beaver's Marty Palmer (18.5 avg.) 
Spring Garden's Lee Radick (17.5 avg.) 

My special awards are as follows: 
Sixth Man Award — The Aggie fans 
(including yours truly) who jeered and 
abused certain Cabrini players into in- 

Bruise Brothers Award — Poindexter 
(15.5 avg.) and Walker (17.0 avg). I 
realize that you must balance things out 
but how did Palmer and Radick make 
all-tournament over these two? 
In Your Jock Award — Marvin Emer- 
son for shutting down (and shutting up) 
John McQueen, an All-American. 
Cry Baby Award — Cabrini head coach 
John Dzik (for the second consecutive 
year) for his childish actions after losing. 
Go home Johnny, your mommy still 
loves you! 

; 1 would personally like to take the time 
to thank the organizers of the tournament 
and hope it continues for years to cornel 


To The Galludet 
Tournament Champs! 

By Duke Blessing 

While the rest of the student body was 
at home sleeping and burping off the ef- 
fects of a gigantic Thanksgiving Day meal, 
the women's basketball team was travel- 
ing to Washington to take place in the 
Galludet College Tournament. 

The team did Del Val proud as they 
won both games (3-0 record) and cap- 
tured the trophy. 

In the first game, against the host 
school, the Aggies pulled out a 67-63 
victory. At halftime. the Aggies led by 
one at 29-28. 

Mary Jo Bush, Kim Frey. and Darcell 
Estep (off the bench) each scored 14 
points and Aimee Trunell added 9 points 
to lead the balanced Del Val scoring at- 

Although this first tournament game 
victory was nice, the championship was 
just one win away. 

Coach Pento's troops took on York 
College and through good shooting and 
rebounding held a 44-34 halftime lead 

During the second half, the Aggies hot 
shooting continued and they captured 
the championship with a 86-66 victory. 

Kim Frey had a superb game with 27 
points, and tournament (20.5 avg). 
Darcell Estep added 18 points in the final 
(16.0 tournament avg.) and Doris McNeil 
chipped in 11 points. Aimee Trunell 
scored 10 points to round out the double 
figure scores. Mary Jo Bush averaged 1 1 
points for the tournament. 

Gary's gang is now 3-0 on the season 
and by the looks of things, he definitely 
has them headed towards the right 


Defeat Cedar Crest 

To End 25-Gaine Drought 

By Duke Blessing 

It started during the last six games of 
the 1982-1983 season. It continued 
through the entire nineteen games of the 
1983-1984 season. It, refers to the 
25-game losing streak suffered by the 
Delaware Valley College women's basket- 
ball team. 

The 1984-1985 women's team put all 
that in the past and decided to change 
the fortunes of that miserable past in a 
hurry — and they did. 

The Aggies traveled to Allentown for a 
game with Cedar Crest College and 
brought back to Del Val what the school 
had, not seen in quite a while — a victory, 
by the score of 76-53. 

First-year head coach Gary Pento's 
team was led by Marcey Carroll with 15 
points and 9 rebounds. Mary Jo Bush 
and Darcell "Fifi" Estep added 14 points 
each and Aimee "not Amy" Trunell had 
10 points. 

Not that predictions can be made from 
one game, but this year's team is much 
improved over last year's team and more 
victories should be expected as the season 
gets under way. 

From the Sports Editor 

Next week's issue is the last of the 
semester. It will contain interviews with 
basketball coaches Les Lombardi and 
Gary Pento. the Aggies first wrestling 
inatch and the first women's indoor track 
Pneet of the season. 

■ If anybody is interested in writing for 
ftie paper next semester put a note in 
box *988 or *515, I want to wish 
everybody good luck in finals! ' 

Del Val Women 
Make It Four Straight 

By Duke Blessing 

The Delaware Valley College women's 
basketball team defeated Wilkes College. 
69-52. to up their overall record to 4-0. 

The Aggies were down 12-4 in the 
early stages of the first half, but as has 
been the case so far this year, they 
entered halftime with a 3-point lead at 

In the second half, the bench got into 
the act as ten players finished in the scor- 
ing column. 

A pressing defense and a tenacious 
zone eventually wore down Wilkes as the 
Aggies breezed. 69-v52. extending their 
winning streak to four. 

Led by Mary Jo Bush ( 10- 13 from the 
floor) and her 20 points, the Aggies also 
got 10 points from Darcell Estep and 
strong rebounding efforts from Marcey 
Carroll and Kim Frey. 

The team closes out this semester's 
schedule with home games Monday. 
December 10 vs. Moravian and Wednes- 
day. December 12 vs. Scranton. .Both 
games are scheduled to start at 7:00 
p.m. Come on out and support the girls!

Ellzabethtown Crushes 
Del Val 97-65 

By Duke Blessing 

The Aggies saw their record drop to 
2-2 as Ellzabethtown College finished 
only three points shy of the century mark 
as they whipped on Del Val, 97-65. 

With nine minutes left in the first half, 
the Aggies only trailed by six points at 
26-20. but Ellzabethtown hit for 16 un- 
answered points enroute to a 46-24 half- 
time lead. 

Things did not get any better during 
the second half as Elizabethtown's sub- 
stitutes kept the torrid shooting and scor- 
ing pace up and they wound up leaving 
Del Val with a 97-65 victory. 

The lone bright spot for the Aggies 
was Darin Poindexter who shot 12 for 16 
from the floor and finished with a game 
high of 25 points. 

The Aggies finish out the 1984 part of 
their schedule tomorrow afternoon as 
they travel to New Jersey to take on 
Drew University Game time is 2:00 
p.m. Good luck, guys! 

Aggies Defeated 
By Wilkes, 8976 

By Duke Blessing 

;■ Winning the tournament was a nice 
^complishment for the young Aggies 
Jkit the past is over and now is the time 
#>at the men's basketball team will get to 
test how good it really is against confer- 
ence rivals. 

Del Val traveled to Wilkes last Thurs- 
day with the intention of showing the 
league that although they are extremely 
young and inexperienced, hustle and 
determination can account for a lot of 
points — and wins. 

In a game that the Aggies had every 
right to win, poor shooting was their 
"|k)wnfall as they went down to defeat. 

, John Boone led the way for the Aggies 
with 13 points. Marvin Emerson, Erik 
Ford, and Derrick McCarter all had 12 
points for Del Val.

Wait Until Dark 

by Dr. James E. Miller 

The DVC Players opened their third 
season last weekend with three captivat- 
ing performances of the modern thriller 
Wait Until Dark. 

The simple kitchen -darkroom set was 
especially suitable for the Student Cen- 
ter's limited theatrical facilities, for all of 
the off-stage footsteps and creaking stairs 
that have been so distracting in other 
productions became part of the action 
and suspense in this one. The compli- 
cated goings-on involve a group of three 
paroled criminals searching around the 
kitchen for a heroin-stuffed doll; they 
find a body instead. 

The head hoodlum, played with easy 
sleaze and slipperiness by Tim Ireland, is 
clearly clever at manipulating his prin- 
cipal victim, an equally clever blind lady 
played by Carolyn Brodhag. Miss Brod- 
hag's energetic performances have be- 
come a DVC tradition. To be convincing 
in this role she had to attract audience 
sympathy from the outset and she did 
this by replacing her usual boldness and 
confidence with an appropriately pitiable 
vulnerability and restraint. 
, The theatrical gimmick of this shrewdly 
constructed play involves the fact that 
the audience watching all the action 
could see what is going on while know- 
ing at the same time that the heroine 
could not. The Friday night audience 
responded with enthusiasm to the il- 
lusory gimmick and empathized with the 
terror in the final scenes, occurring in a 
total darkness and putting the blind lady 
at a slight advantage over her tormenters. 
. The harsh shadows, photographic red 
lights, matches lit in the dark, light sneak- 
ing in through the crack under the door, 
and all the other lighting effects con- 
tributed to the suspense. ' ' 

The supporting cast of cops, hoods, 
and a husband, was convincing. Wendy 
Unger. playing a bratty twelve-year-old 
kid. turned in a notable performance. 

Wait Until Dark was adeptly directed 
by David Harris. Using total darkness, 
then, the DVC Players have once again 
brightened the stage.

Dan Glowatski. a senior split end from 
Mt. Carmel. Pennsylvania, was named 
to the All-Middle Atlantic Conference 
football team as selected by conference 

Glowatski (6-2. 190 pounds) was the 
only Aggie selected for the first team. Of- 
fensive linemen Joe Rada and John 
Mazzola, running back Nick Russo. and 
defensive back Joe Cox were named to 
the Honorable Mention team. 

Glowatski caught 53 passes for 867 
yards this year, both single-season 
records. He finished his career with 154 
catches for 2,645 yards, both career 

Glowatski, a Business Administration 
major, has been All-MAC for the past 
three seasons and All-ECAC for the past 
two years. Last season. Glowatski was 
an Associated Press Little All-America 
selection and a Pizza Hut Division III All- 
American choice. 

Russo, a senior from Archbishop Ryan 
High School, finished the 1984 season 
with 692 yards on 197 carries (3.5 aver- 
age) and scored seven touchdowns. 
Russo, the MAC co-Player of the Year in 
1982. finished his career with 2,153 
yards, just 158 yards short of Eric 
Reynolds' all-time rushing record 

Cox, a junior from Milleville High, had 
33 first hits, 30 assisted tackles, one in- 
terception, a fumble recovery, and two 
tipped passes. 

Rada, a senior from Middletown 
South High, was a three-year starter for 
the Aggies. Mazzola, a junior from Triton 
Regional, was named to the All-MAC 
team for the first time.

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

Once again the DVC Players put on a 
spectacular performance and also, once 
again, no one came to see it! I am so sick 
of hearing everyone complain that there 
is nothing to do on weekends. During 
the three performances, only 92 people 
total came to see the show; six of which 
were faculty and administrators, at tops 
25 were students, and the rest were 
relatives and people from Doylestown. 

I have heard many complaints about 
the price. I realize $2.50 is a lot to ask, 
but the club is relatively new and we 
must buy a lot of our materials as op- 
posed to reusing them. That takes care 
of the students. I agree the price was too 
high. On the other hand, faculty were 
charged a very nominal fee — NOTH- 
ING! I'm sure many of the faculty had at 
least one of the evenings free. 

As actresses and actors, it is very 
discouraging to study and rehearse for 
two months (every night of the week and 
eight hours a day on weekends) and to 
walk out on stage on opening night and 
have a grand total of 15 people staring 
back at us. I don't think people realize 
how much time goes into a play, and it 
was all for nothing. 1 realize people do 
like to get away from the school, and that 
includes faculty, but we did give a Thurs- 
day night performance. 

If members of this college could attend 
at least one performance, they may real- 
ize that their class isn't the only thing that 
is occupying our time. I realize that the 
apathy at this school is very bad. with 
students as well as faculty, and it isn't 
only our club. But I don't want to hear it 
again — there is a lot to do on this cam- 
pus. Just go out and find it. I also want to 
thank the faculty and students who did 
come, especially Dr. Miller. 


The DVC Players

by Joe Ferry 

Dan Glowatski, Joe Rada. and Brian 
Breneman were named to the ECAC 
Division III South All-Star team chosen 
by the region's 15 coaches. 

Glowatski. who was previously named 
to the All-Middle Atlantic Conference 
team, is a senior split end from Mt. 
Carmel, Pennsylvania. Glowatski. who 
set single-season and career records for 
most receptions and most yards receiv- 
ing, has been named All-ECAC for three 
straight years. In 1984 Glowatski caught 
53 passes for 867 yards. He finished his 
career with 154 catches for 2.645 yards. 

Rada, a senior from Middletown 
South High, was a three-year starter for 
the Aggies. He previously had been 
named to the All-MAC Honorable Men- 
tion team at offensive guard . 

Breneman. a junior tight end from 
Spring Grove High, enjoyed his best 
season as a college player. He caught 35 
passes for 526 yards and four touch - 
dowjis this past season. 

"I'm pleased that the other coaches in 
the region saw fit to honor these three 
players," said Aggies head coach Al 
Wilson. "They certainly worked hard for 
their accomplishments during the sea- 
son. We'll miss Glowatski and Rada next 
year but having a fine player like Brian 
Breneman back will make it a smoother

Let the Music be Heard! 

by ED. Wengryn 

On Sunday, December 9, the DVC 
Choral and Band put on their annual 
Christmas Dinner and Concert. The food 
and entertainment were exceptional. 

The Choral was the first major per- 
former of the night giving a half hour 
worth of Christmas carols. The Band fol- 
lowed with its production numbers. The 
groups should be congratulated for their 
excellent performances. If anything was 
missing it could be called lack of involve- 
ment by students. Thanks to Mrs. Roberts 
and Mr. Durner for their time and dedi- 
cation in putting together the show and 
thanks to Mr. Moyer and M.W. Wood 
and staff for an excellent dinner. 

Wait Until Dark 

Wait Until Dark 

by ED. Wengryn 

The DVC Players' production of Wait 
Until Dark can be called a success. The 
story is about a search for a doll contain- 
ing two million in drugs (heroin at its 
best). The show opens with two ex-cons 
played by Bruce Honzicker and Bruce 
Baily meeting a man called Mr. Roat, 
played by Tim Ireland, the men set up a 
scheme to get the doll back from a blind 
lady played by Carolyn Brodhag. As the 
play progresses and the scheme of the 
men goes into action, we meet an in- 
quisitive 12-year-old played by Wendy 
Unger. It is late in the show that we 
discover the little girl was the one who 
had the doll as she returns it to the blind 
lady. The final encounter between Mr. 
Roat and the blind lady sets everyone on 
the end of their seats. 

The cast and crew did a wonderful job 
and should be congratulated. Anyone in- 
terested in participating in the spring pro- 
duction should contact any of the Drama 
Club members; once again, thanks for a 
job well done and bringing theatre to

Because of the irresponsibility of quite 
a few students, a $25 fine has been im- 
posed on all students leaving trays, glas- 
ses, plates, utensils, napkins, etc. at 
tables in the cafeteria. Any student who 
witnesses such lack of manners is urged 
to report names to Dean Tasker or Kathy 

The mess in the cafeteria can get 
cleaned up only by the involvement of 
other students. Don't put the respon- 
sibility on someone else. 


The last and final retakes of senior por- 
traits will be taken on January 17. Sign- 
ups will be during registration on January 
14. There will be an additional cost of 
$5. Sign-up times will be 12 and 4 p.m. 
and for evening students from 6-7:30 
p.m. Remember, this is your final chance! 

Good Luck!

Kings Breezes by DVC 
88 66 

By Duke Blessing 

The DVC men's basketball team lost 
their third straight game since winning 
the tournament and saw their league 
record drop to 0-3 (2-3 overall) as Kings 
College scored 54 second half points to 
defeat the Aggies. 88-66. 

Trailing only 34-31 at the half, the Ag- 
gies defense was shredded underneath' 
in the second half by Chris Feistl's 26 
points and Ed Moyer's 19. 

Derrick McCarter led the Aggies with 
16 points while the Aliquippa Connec- 
tion (Dodd Walker and Marvin Emerson) 
scored 13 and 12 respectively. 

Putting together two consistent halves 
has been the problem lately and the team 
needs a victory to get back the confi- 
dence evident a few weeks ago. 


Drew University Humbles 
DVC, 10284 

by Duke Blessing 

The good news — the Aggies played 
Drew University to an 84-84 standstill for 
the last 35 minutes of their MAC basket- 
ball game last Saturday afternoon. 

The bad news — basketball games are 
40 minutes long and it was during the in- 
itial five minutes where the Aggies lost 
the ball game by getting behind Drew 

Adding up the good news and bad 
news comes out to equal a 102-84 loss

Dodd Walker scored 22 points to lead 
the Aggies in scoring. 

The Aggies (3-4, 1-4) are now off until 
next semester when they play Ursinus 
College in Collegeville on January 8 at 8 
p.m. The team then returns home Thurs-

The following is an interview .with 

Gary Pento, the new head coach of the 

DVC women's basketball team. 

Q Do you consider yourself as being in 
an enviable position as the new head 
coach of the DVC women's basketball 
team? Since the program has not 
been too successful in the past few 
years, do you look at this situation ^s 
a personal challenge, a spring board 
to future endeavors, or is this more 
like a take-it-as-it-comes and sec- 
what-happens-next-year approach? 

A I take it as a personal challenge in that 
I am trying to take the girls to a cham- 
pionship and turn the program around. 
1 have always wanted to be a head 
coach and Al Wilson gave me the 
break 1 needed. What I am trying to 
do is to stay with these girls for four 
years and then try to move on from 
there. It is a challenge with the intent 
on building a winning program and to 
better myself in hopes of someday 
becoming a major college basketball 

Q What is the difference between coach- 
ing women and men? Have your phi- 
losophies, both offensively and defen- 
sively changed due to the obvious 
physical capabilities? 

A On defense, I try to have the women 
pack it in because you don't have the 
height that you do with men . For ex- 
ample, in a 2-3 zone, i will not have 
my back girl come out, my front girl 
will chase, which thus creates better 
rebounding. With men, because of 
physical advantages, the back man 
can come out of position and chase. 
There is no real change as far as my 
phibsophies are concerned, basket- 
ball is basketball . 

Q What was the key to winning the 
Galludet Tournament? 

A The key to winning the tournament 
was our desire to bring home a trophy. 
On the court, the key was our chang- 
ing up of defenses, from man-to-man 
to a full-court press to the 2-3 zone. I 
thought Galludet was the best team in 
the tournament. They had just lost to 
Wagner by two points. Our philosophy 
was to go out and play hard, play with 
intensity and bring the trophy back. 

Q With so many freshmen on the team, 
was it important to explain to the girls 
that the past misfortunes of the team 
were just that, in the past, or did you 
sit down anyway and talk things out 
about the program and where it was 
and could be? 

A We looked at last year as being over 
and done with, but we looked at the 
0-19 record as something on which 
we could improve greatly upon. We 
have a lot of good freshmen, some 
were captain of their high school 
team. Mary Jo Bush averaged 25 
points a game, was captain and made 
the All- Johnstown team. Aimee 
Trunell was All-Catholic and aver- 
aged about 17 points a game. Doris 
McNeill was All-Hammonton County 
and scord 958 points in her career. I 
did not really know until we took the 
court just what we had. We are still far 
away from being real good. There are 
still a lot of fundamental things that we 
are doing wrong. 

Q What are your team goals going into 
this season? 

A To take the girls to the MAC's for the 
first time, make the playoffs, and have 
a solid winning record . 1 want the girls 
to have a good time, basketball should 
not be a chore, but I want to win. 1 
told some people we were going to 
win the Galludet Tournament and br- 
ing back a trophy — and we did. Kim 
Frey and Michele Heffner have a killer 
instinct in them which is extending to 
everyone else because they have lost 
in the past and see the opportunity to 

Q Finally, give me a little background 
about the players on your team — the 
starters, bench, etc. 

A You can actually say we have seven 
starters in Aimee Trunell, Michele 
Heffner, and Doris McNeill at guard. 
Mary Jo Bush, Darcell Estep, and 
Marcey Carroll at the forward position 
and Kim Frey at center. Lisa Long 
comes off the bench as a defen- 
sive stopper. Anita Willis and Etta 
Smith can come off the bench and 
play guard. At the forward spot, we 
can send in JoAnna Toenniesen, 
Melanie Cassidy, and Grace Kasprzak. 
I am having a tough time dividing up 
playing time because everybody can

Six games — six wins and no losses! 
The DVC women's basketball team de- 
feated Drew University, 74-58. to raise 
their record to 6-0 (2-0 in the MAC). 

With the win, Coach Gary Pento and 
his troops have already recorded more 
victories this season than in the previous 
two years combined. 

Marcey Carroll led the Aggies with 14 
points, 10 rebounds, and five blocked 
shots. Michele Heffner and Aimee 
Trunell scored 12 points a piece and 
Mary Jo Bush (back after an ankle injury) 
collected 10 points. Darcell Estep was 
the Aggies' leading rebounder, pulling 
down 12 boards.

day, January 12 vs. Allentown and 
Tuesday, January 15 vs. Kings. Both 
games are scheduled to start at 6 p.m. 

The Cit}; of Champions! 

by Duke Blessing 

It is in the statistics and standings. 
Each year, Philadelphia has either the 
highest or next to highest winning per- 
centage in its combined records of sports 
teams. It has been this way for almost a 
decade and things look as if they are get- 
ting even better for many more years to 

Out of the cities which field teams in 
both hockey and basketball, here is a 
breakdown on how this year's winter 
race stands: 

Philadelphia 33 8 5 805 
Boston 28 14 3 .667 

Washington 26 16 5 .619 
Los Angeles 26 19 5 .577 
Chicago 24 21 3 .533 

Detroit 20 24 3 .454 

New York 18 28 3 .391 
New Jersey 15 27 3 .357 
Oh well, another year on top! By the 
way, Philadelphia's Eagles 27 - Boston's 
(New England) Patriots 17.

Philadelphia fans surely will!

Aggie Track Team Shines 
At Lehigh Open 

By Duke Blessing 

The Aggies men's track team opened 
the 1984-1985 indoor track season with 
a solid showing at the Lehigh Open as 
the team brought home a gold medal 
and a new school record. 

Brandon Newell (fellow C.B. East 
grad) earned a gold for the Aggies as he 
hit 47-3 in the triple-jump. Newell was 
runner-up in the nation last year. In just 
the first mgct of the season, Newell let- 
tered the NCAA qualifying standard with 
his jump. 

Newell, the "sky and flight king," also 
took third place in the long jump with a 
22-6. Pennridge graduate Dave Bradley 
placed sixth with a 20-1V4. 

In other field events. Chris Buckley 
placed fourth in the high jump at 6-6. 

John Stella also placed fourth, in the 
shot, with a throw of 45-8 V2. Carl Tarab- 
bio got fifth place at 43-4^/4 and Steve 
Liller placed ninth with a heave of 

Stella got an Aggie school record 
(breaking his own) in the 35-pound 
weight throw with a toss of 43-9V2. 

In the track events, Chip Zerr finished, 
ninth in the 600 with a time of 1:15.3. 

Rob Benner ran a 4:37.99 mile and 
Ken McDaid (another East grad) finished 
ninth in the two-mile with a 9:46.52. 

In the half-mile Chuck Cooper ran a 
2:04.2, Al Krouse and Rob Benner ran a 
2:05.3 and 2:07.6, respectively. 

In the quarter, Al Benner placed fif- 
teenth with a 52 8. 

This was the only meet of the semester 
for the Aggies and they will be off until 
January 18, 1985.

Get psyched

According to the New Policy . . . 

by Kathy McNamara 

For sometime now, students and fac- 
ulty alike have know that a positive atti- 
tude about campus life has been lacking 
It became very apparent this past fall that 
questions were surfacing from various 
faculty members regarding academics 
and how they were being affected by 
dormitory life. Also, there was a general 
concern among faculty, administration, 
and students about the destruction oc- 
curring on campus and the inconsiderate 
attitude of some students towards others. 

In order to help alleviate these prob- 
lems. p>ermission was given by President 
Joshua Feldstein to have an ad hoc com- 
mittee composed of both faculty and 
students to study the existing social 

This committee was responsible for 
making recommendations that could 
possibly improve many of the problems 
around campus. During the course of 
research, the present student handbook 
was studied to determine whether the 
existing policies were satisfactory and. if 
not. how they could be positively modi- 
fied. Faculty and student committees 
met separately, then jointly and present- 
ed a list of recommendations to Presi- 
dent Feldstein. These recommendations 
addressed, in particular, the fact that stu- 
dents of the College need to get to know 
one another. This will, hopefully, create 
an atmosphere of mutual respect. 

The recommendations begin with 
statements on students' rights and res- 
ponsibilities. A major point is that res- 

ponsibility for one's actions is placed 
squarely on the individual. 

A quiet-hour policy was developed to 
enhance and improve dormitory condi- 
tions to make the dorms conducive for 

Caesar's Pub was permanently estab- 
lished as a place where students can go 
to relax and enjoy each other's com- 
pany. Because of the small size of this 
campus and the close interaction be- 
tween teachers and students, Caesar's 
Pub was also established to enhance 
faculty and student relationships. 

The College's policy on registered par- 
ties was changed to encourage organiza- 
tions to sponsor such events and to en- 
courage resident students to remain on 
campus during weekends. 

In summary, the aim of the new social 
policies is to create a serious atmosphere 
during the week to encourage academic 
excellence and a relaxed atmosphere to 
encourage weekend activities. 

Individual dorms were given the op- 
portunity to establish reasonable social 
policies and an individual's room is 
recognized as his/her "home away from 
home" as long as others' rights were 

A social board, comprised equally of 
students and faculty, was established to 
help implement the new policies and 
serve as the court for specified disciplin- 
ary action should there be violations. 

With everyone doing his or her fair 
share, there is no doubt that DVC will 
develop the happy campus atmosphere 
that it should have. 

Media Center Opens 

by E.D. Wengryn 

Eisner Hall, that little white building 
behind the cafeteria, now is the home of 
the DVC Media Center. Big deal, right? 
You bet! For seniors who want slides for 
seminars this is the place to get them 
done. But it's not only for pictures; all 
movie and slide equipment is to be lent 
from there. The Kroy label maker and 
Drymount laminator are also there. But 
most important for those taking history, 
this is the place to see those Vietnam 
movies (when they get there) on the 

Currently no night hours are set. as 
Mrs. Davidson is the only real staff mem- 
ber, and she needs help if she is to serve 
everyone. For now the hours are 8a.m. 
to 4 p.m. daily and 12 noon to 5 p.m 
on Sundays. When more student aides 
are hired, the hours will expand; till then, 
stop by and say hello and see what the 
Media Center has for you. 

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

We would like to thank all those who 
helped out with our first registered Video 
Dance We couldn't have done it without 
you. It was a total success! A special 
thanks to Mr Decker for all his coopera- 
tion and to Carol Weibley for all her help 
and suggestions. 

Things are off to a good start and in 
order to make the "new policy " work it's 
going to take all of us. 

Thanks again everyone!!

by Rosemary Kluth 

The New Year's Video Dance. Friday 
the 18th. was terrific. We have to hand it 
to Student Government for sponsoring 
the first registered in the APR (it's about 
time) . The atmosphere was great — with 
tables and lights. The video's were the 
best and the music was danceable. 

I'm sure that I'm not the only one 
looking forward to the next one. No one 
should have missed it. Thanks again and 
good going Student Government.

Caesar's Pub 

by ED. Wengryn 

Del Val '85, enter the twilight zone. 
Never before have student initiated ideas 
taken off so fast. The demand for a place 
to go on campus is quickly being met. 

Last year we all enjoyed a new ele- 
ment on campus, the non-alcoholic night 
spot called Caesar's Pub. Many were 
astonished to see the change in the emp- 
ty void called the Snack Bar. The lights 
were cut, the walls decorated (along with 
the rest of the room), and the people 
poured in. Many said that once the initial 
novelty wore off that the people would 
stop coming. Not so, the fire that started 
on those nights still burns, and now hot- 
ter than ever. 

A few dedicated students spent some- 
time over winter break working with 
Coach Wilson and others on bringing 
some permanent features to DVC's 
Snack Bar. The biggest is the name 
Caesar's Pub. The Snack Bar will under- 
go some permanent face lifting changes 
that will bring warmth and comfort to the 
barren space in the Student Center. 

These changes include a juke box. not 
to mention the wide screen TV to be 
placed in the far (till now useless) corner 
of Caesar's. This TV will be used to show 
video movies on special nights and it will 
also receive a cable hookup. 

Other upcoming changes include the 
building of barn siding planters to be 
placed between the pillars, and the con- 
tinuation of the barn siding to cover the 
bare wall on the left. This area will even- 
tually be finished off with booths. The 
Caesar's staff will run specialty nights 
such as the recent milkshake and brownie 
night. These nights will run from 10 p.m. 
to 12:30 a.m. and will happen fairly 
often with sjsecial movies or sporting 

But with all of these changes, the crea- 
tors of the new Caesar's did not forget 
what made it famous. They will still have 
dances and special celebrations like a 
Valentine's Day Caesar's, a Spring has 
Sprung Caesar's, and hopefully a Ha- 
waiian Night at Caesar's. It is the hope of 
the new Caesar's creators that the pub 
will become the place to be when you 
can no longer stand the new quiet hour 
rules in your dorm. So when the rules 
get you down, don't strangle your room- 
mate, head to Caesar's where something 
is always happening. 

Thank You!

A Fairy Tale Come True 

Once upon a time, where the Aggies 
roamed free, there was a small but quaint 
college. The Aggies returning from a 
much-needed vacation were busily un- 
packing their new Christmas clothes. 

With determination and courage, one 
by one. the Aggies made their way to the 
All-Purpose Room in search of their 
schedule. Some were fortunate to pass 
through quickly, while other became a 
permanent wall hanging never to return 
to the land of the living. 

Once the shock of their new schedules 
passed, the Aggies were greeted with 
some new laws. They learned that the 
snack bar is now Caesar's Pub all week 
long. Caesar's will have movies running 
during the week and a juke box to listen 
to while eating the Caesar's specials The 
Aggies learned that Caesar's will be a 
great place to hang out during quiet 
hours if they feel a need to blow off 
steam . 

For most of the Aggies, a glimmer of 
hope of a new semester, now filled many 
smiles, for the semester held for them 
■nany new social activities and registered 
par*'es. So. in the land where the Aggies 
roamed free, there was never a boring 
moment at the small but quaint college.

On Friday, Jan. 18th, DVC's Men's 
Track Team journeyed to the University 
of Delaware to compete against Dela- 
ware, Drexel. and LaSalle. Although the 
Aggies placed fourth overall, they did 
score 28 points and racked up four first 
place finishes in individual events. Bran- 
don Newell, a man we've heard a lot 
about in the past, tallied two of the four 
firsts. Brandon placed first in the long 
jump (21 ' 10^/4 ") and in the triple jump 
(48 '8", his personal best indoors). Also 
placing first was weight man Jim Bauzon 
in the 351b. wt. throw (44' 3". new 
school record) and sprinter Al Benner 
who ran 51.00 seconds in the open 400 
m. for another school indoor record. 

When reading about Benner, be sure 
to check the first name because a new 
Aggie is Rob Benner. Al's younger 
brother who ran 2:02 in the 800 m. on 
Friday. Rob will also be competing in the 
3000 m. steeplechase in the spring. 
Other freshmen joining the Aggies are 
Sean diver (100 m. 200 m, 4 x 100 
m.). Wan-en Kruse (10.000 m). Steve 
Liller (shotput). Steve Meyer (1.500. 
5.000), Dave Bradley (LJ. TJ. 4 x 400 
m. 400 IH). Mike Kilker. and Carl Trab- 
bio (shotput). 

Steve Caffey joined Brandon in the tri- 
ple jump placing third (42 ' 2V2"). In the 
shotput. Jim Bauzon took third (45' 8") 
followed by Steve Liller. fifth (43 ' 3V4 ") . 
Edson Barret placed fourth in the 55 m. 
dash (6.46 sec.) and Al Krouse placed 
second in the 1.500 m. (4:03.7). 

The Aggies were impressive. They 
scored 28 points against big name 
schools in their first meet after a layoff of 
nearly six weeks. Also, they did so with- 
out the efforts of Chip Zerr. John Stella, 
and Chris Buckley, who were unable to 
compete for various reasons. 

The Aggies are looking forward to a 
great year. So. keep your eyes peeled 
because this is just the beginning! 

Anyone interested in joining the Ag- 
gies track team, men or women's, the 
spring season officially starts on Feb. 1st. 
Practice is at 4:15 daily at James Work 
Memorial Stadium. Anyone interested in 
joining must attend practice everyday 
from that point on. Good luck Aggies!

Men's Hoop Team 
Wins Five in a Rowl 

By Duke Blessing 

Coach Les Lombardi's team trudged 
into the Christmas break with a 3-4 
record. He came back after the break 
and reloaded his gun with 1 1 freshrtien. 

Going into the second half of the sea- 
son with literally no years experience 
on the playing roster, the Aggies faced a 
tough road ahead in playing much more 
experienced teams. 

A funny thing happened to the kiddie 
corps — they won ap incredible five in a 


Aggies even record at 4-4. Dodd 
Walker scored 27 points and pulled 
down seven rebounds. John Boone and 
Derrick McCarter scored 14 and 13 
respectively, while Eric Ford added 
seven points. 

The Aggies shot 60 percent from the 
floor and 75 percent from the line. 


For the few people who understand 
this meaning, this was the Jim Bender 
special. The first Aggie victory in the 
school's history over Albright College. 

Derrick McCarter hit a shot to tie the 
game at 72-72 and send it into overtime. 

in the overtime period, the Aggies 
scored 10 consecutive points and won 
going away 85-75. 

Dodd Walker led the Aggies with 27 
points and Denrick McCarter scored 16. 

Aggies now 5-4 overall, 2-4 league. 

Three in a row for Coach Lombardi's 
team! The Aggies got down by 1 1 points 
in the second half but came back to throt- 
tle Allentown College. 

Dodd Walker led the Aggies with 18 
points and nine rebounds. Eric Ford 
scored 13 points and dealt nine assists. 

Aggies win fourth in a row! DVC over- 
comes a 14-point deficit to defeat an ex- 
perienced Muhlenberg squad. 

Eric Ford scored 14 points and had 
four steals. Derrick McCarter led the Ag- 
gies in scoring with 19 points while Dodd 
Walker and John Boone added 12 and 
10 respectively. 

Winning streak hits five games! Aggies 
overall record at 8-4. 

Marvin Emerson had his best overall 
game since the season opening tourna- 
ment as he scored 18 points and did a 
nice defensive job on Catholic's leading 
scorer. John Winkler. 

Derrick McCarter also had a nice 
game as he poured in 16 points. 

Coaches Lombardi and Welsh and the 
team should be congratulated for this ef- 
fort and here's hoping for a good record 
the rest of the year!

Aggie Women Drop 
Fourth Straight 

by Duke Blessing 

The Women's Basketball Team has hit 
a snag, losing their fourth straight after 
seven wins to open the season. 

The setback was at the hands of Al- 
bright College by the score of 61-54. 

DVC was led by freshman Mary Jo 
Bush who canned 19 points. Kim Frey 
added 10 points in the losing cause. 

With the loss, the Aggies record drops 
to 7-4 with their league mark falling to 

Tonight, the girls play St. Elizabeth 
College at 7 p.m. in the Work Gym. 
Come out and support the team! 

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

I want to express the appreciation of 
the Admissions Office to those students 
from Farm 3 and the Dairy Department 
for the extra effort shown at the Pa. State 
Farm Show. The Farm Show is a very 
important time for recruiting and touch- 
ing base with alumni in the agriculture 
industry as well as livestock and dairy 

Our students received many compli- 
ments about their good attitudes and 
knowledge about DVC. Well over 
750. (XX) people travel through the 
week-long event, making it one of the 
largest and most important agricultural 
expositions in the country. I was very 
proud of comments received from alum- 
ni, local residents, employers, and even 
college representatives from the "other 
agricultural college." 

I just hope that students realize and 
take advantage of the opportunities pre- 
sented to them at DVC. We offer a most 
unique college setting and atmosphere 
that, if used, can make them highly suc- 
cessful individuals. 

in spite of the days when the dining 
hall served mystery meat and cold corn, 
(again) and the dorms had only cold 
water for a morning shower and all the 
other inconveniences that arose, there is 
plenty to make you feel proud of being a 
DVC Aggie. 

Special thanks to Neil Kratzer and 
crew for ail their help. 

Thanks again, 
Jacky Mento

The Aggie men's basketball team took 
to the road last weekend and came back 
empty handed. 

On Friday night the Aggies were 
dumped by Susquehanna 99-74. Derrick 
McCarter led the way with 17 points 
while Dodd "Hometown" Walker and 
Marvin Emerson scored 15 and 10 

The Aggies dropped a tough one to 
Juniata on Saturday by the score of 

Once again. Derrick McCarter led the 
way with 22 points. Dodd Walker chip- 
ped in with 13 points. 

After 14 games Dodd Walker leads 
the team in scoring (L5.5) and rebound- 
ing (7.1). Derrick McCarter is second in 
scoring at 12.7 a game. 

With the two losses. DVC drops to 8-6 
overall. 2-6 in the league. 

The Aggies are at Spring Garden to- 
night and travel to Scranton on Wednes- 
day for a MAC contest.

The 69th Pennsylvania Farm Show 

by L.E. Blatt 

It was a typical farm show. Snow, 
snow, and more snow. The 69th Penn- 
sylvania Farm Show opened on Sat., 
Jan. 12, in the midst of precipitation. 
Governor Dick Thornburg and Secretary 
of Agriculture, Penrose Hallowcll of 
Bucks County, were on hand for the 
opening address. 

Despite all of the outdoor weather ac- 
tivity, many of us spent the week at the 
Farm Show which ran from Sat., Jan. 
12 to Fri., Jan. 18. As I worked at the 
PA Rorists Association booth, which was 
in the middle of everything, the most 
asked question to me was "Where are 
the ducks and chickens?" After the Avian 
Flu outbreak last year that kept the fowl 
from making an appearance at the farm 
show, everyone was anxious to see all 
the ducks, turkeys, and chickens this 
year. These birds were well represented 
with everything from Canadian geese to 
turkeys, and everyone that I talked to 
certainly enjoyed the return of our fine- 
feathered friends. 

The cattle, horses, and small animals 
were another popular attraction. In fact, 
while 1 was at the Harrisburg Arena, twin 
calves and about six lambs were born, a 
sight the children thoroughly enjoyed! 

There was also a lot of farm equip- 
ment, seed companies, and agricultural 
journals represented. On set-up day, 
Fri., ail the companies were waxing and 
painting their equipment. (Of course, the 

machinery never looks better than when 
It's at the farm show.) 

Many women go to the farm show for 
the fine display of homemade clothing, 
quilts, other crafts, and canned food. 
There were several display rooms of hor- 
ticultural and agronomic crops. In these 
rooms was everything from beeswax, 
honey, and fruit to wheat, barley, and 

The entire week was filled with many 
demonstrations. There was the showing 
of all the animals, sheep-shearing dem- 
onstrations, sewing exhibitions, and a 
square dancing contest, just to name a 
few of the events. 

Everyone who visits the farm show 
has to have a try at the scrumptious as- 
sortment of homemade foods. Breaded 
mushrooms, vegetable soup, pork bar- 
beques, chocolate shakes, and my 
favorite — baked potatoes. 

The agricultural educational institu- 
tions of Pennsylvania were also well rep- 
resented. Penn Stiite had an exhibit 
which helped one to learn about the agri- 
cultural extensio'n service in each jjarticu- 
lar county. Williamsport Area Communi- 
ty College was represented by an exhibit 
which showed what the school is all 
about. Last, but definitely not least, DVC 
was represented by Jackie Mento and 
the admissions exhibit where there was 
an alumni sign-in and DVC balloons and 

Newborns at the 69th Pennsylvania Farm Show.

"Romancing the Stone' 

by Kevin Brown 

Romancing the Stone is a light-hearted 
romantic adventure of a "one of those 
days" in the life of Joan Wilder. Joan, a 
romance novelist played by Kathleen 
Turner, is introduced as a frustrated 
woman, bored with reality, bored with 
her work, and bored with her cat, known 
as Romeo. But as the daily doldrums 
were about to end for our victim, sud- 
denly her less fortunate sister, whose 
husband had just been stabbed to death, 
is kidnapped by a precocious 12-year- 
old (probably also bored playing with his 
friends) who delivers her over to terrible 
white-collar thugs who take her to Col- 
umbia, a nation in possesion of its own 
reputation for relief of boredom. 

Joan gets rop)ed into this because of a 
treasure map mysteriously mailed to her. 
The kidnappers want it. Joan heads off 
to Columbia to deliver it, a noble but 
frustrated cause. She arrives, takes a 
bus, and ends up causing an accident 
between the only two vehicles running 
within a hundred miles; one of them, 
their bus, was heading the wrong way 
anyway. The other was a Jeep which 
probably wasn't in good condition at all; 
she is left helplessly at the scene caught 
in a shoot out and then finally alone with 
her hero, Jack T. Colton (Michael Doug- 
las), who won the shoot out. 

T^e heroine exemplifies many strong 
qualities, all of them are sadly too 
feminine: off on a rescue mission, 
unarmed and weighed down. At the first 
meeting with the man of her dreams, she 
didn't impress him (nor he her) . She was 
powered and puffed; he adamant and 

Nothing about her seemed to impress 
him. Seeing this helped her boredom a 
bit. She had to buy his help, carry her 
own unnecessary baggage, and then 

Movie Review 

by Jamie Beck 

Over the holidays, this reviewer scan- 
ned two films. The Cotton Club and 
Johnn\/ Dangerously. 

The first feature we saw that day was 
The Cotton Club, which starred that 
handsome actor Richard Gere and his 
leading lady, Diane Lane. This movie 
centers around New York's Cotton Club 
during the early 1930's. It's about Dixie 
(Gere) Drwyer, who makes his living 
playing coronet in a club band. One 
night he accidently saves the life of Dutch 
Schultz. Afterward his life changes for- 
ever. He's thrown into a life of crime and 
the underworld. He is hired by the Dutch- 
man to be the bodyguard of his mistress 
(Lane). This movie, although a bit long, 
is interesting to watch if you pay attention. 

The second feature of the day was the 
comedy Johnnt^ Dangerously starring 
Michael Keaton, Marilu Henner, and 
many, many others. This movie is a 
spoof on the gangster movies set in the 
1930's. Whereas. The Cotton Club 
could be termed a gangster film. 

The movie starts when Johnny Kelly, 
alias Johnny Dangerously (Keaton). 
turns to the underworld to help pay for 
his mother's medical bills. He's known to 
his family just as a nightclub owner, they 
don't know he's a hood. Johnny's little 
brother is on his way up to becoming the 
D.A.; he wants to stop crime and stop 
Mr. Dangerously. What will happen 
when he finds out that the brother who 
put him through law school is Johnny 
Dangerously? Watch to find out. 

I thought that both movies were good. 
They are both set in the same time 
period and have the same subject, but 
that's where the similarity ends. The Cot- 
ton Club is a fairly deep melodrama, 
while Johnny Dangerously is a fun-filled 
comedy. If you enjoy watching movies of 
the gangster era, here's your chance to 
see either or both movies. They are both 
worth the time. If they are not out in your 
area, you can wait to watch them on 
video tape or on pay TV (like HBO, 
Prism, etc.) 

' ~ A Woman's Fantasy! 

struggle to keep up with him because of 
her high-heeled shoes. He did her no 
favors, payed her no special respect, nor 
did her any harm. 

After this, they spend a night in the 
fuselage of a downed plane filled with 
kilo bags of marijuana. A beautiful 
woman, a plane full of pot, and a bottle 
of whiskey they found, helped romance 
usurp the adventure. Here we see the 
real stone; the emerald becomes a sub- 
plot. The story is about a woman's fan- 
tasy of a man. In reality he is not who she 
expected, but during her frustrated dia- 
logue of what a real man should be her 
bubble is pleasantly burst. 

She rattles on while he moves, ignor- 
ing her lecture, when as the camera 
angle widens we see approaching behind 
her a snake, of which she is unaware. 
When he finally kills it she is confound- 
ed. She realizes a real man knows how 
to survive. We realize the real stone is 
Jack T. Colton. 

He was a man living alone, surrounded 
by a forbidding jungle which apparently 
he learned to master. His sole ambition 
was to sail the world, a task which Joan 
empatheticaliy saw as lonely. 

Finally his purpose as her guide is 
over, the romance and charm seem 
gone. He takes her money and is ap- 
fjarently ready to leave her behind. But 
as romance stories have it, it is not the 
case. He surprises her, wines her, dines 
her, makes love to her, he becomes her 

The story could have easily been 
serious if the characters had been so. But 
they were light, taking each twist and 
turn with ease, fun, and romance. 

The next time you have one of those 
days, play along, your wildest dreams 
may come true!

Student Store - A Jail? Philadelphia Orchestra 

Is this familiar — "Please take off your 
coat and put it in the coat hole." For 
many of us, this is a very familiar sen- 
tence that can be heard at the Student 

The Student Store started a new policy 
of having the store's patrons take their 
coats off. Apparently, the store has been 
losing money through stolen goods. This 
new policy is supposed to cut down on 
the amount of stealing. 

For me, a patron who doesn't steal, I 
feel very humiliated every time I'm asked 
to take my coat off. I feel equally bad for 
the employee who has to ask me to take 
it off. When I do go to the Student Store, 
I usually stay only a few minutes; taking 
my coat off is an inconvenience. Also, 
there are no hangers to hang my coat 
up. I have to put my coat in a hole made 
for books. 

As a student. 1 feel very embarrased 
about the Student Store. We are not kin- 
dergartens, we are college students who 
should be trusted. If the Student Store is 
having problems with stolen goods. I 
suggest that the store undergo changes 
in personnel and their policies. 

I hope in the future, the Student Store 
stops treating us like convicts! 

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

What is A.D.? And when" is it going to 
get here? There have been many letters 
written about littering our campus. This is 
another one! What purposes do notices 
serve if no one knows what they mean! 
Anyone who has entered the mail room 
has seen the purpose of such notices. 
They cover the tiles on the floor! There- 
fore, not only were these notices mean- 
ingless, they were a waste of paper and 
very few of them made it to the trash 
can . Not only do I hold the students res- 
ponsible but the main responsibility, in 
my mind, falls on the shoulders of the 
people who put this meaningless notice 
in our mailboxes. Trying to build sus- 
pense is one thing, but at the expense of 
wasting paper and littering our campus. I 
hardly think it's worth it. I have not found 
anyone who knows what A.D. is. Can 
you shed any light on this subject?

Coffeehouse with Steve 

by Robert Veneziale 

On Tues.. Jan. 22. Steve Coffey en- 
tertained hungry and tired DVC students 
at the first coffeehouse of the semester. 
The coffeehouse was held in the Snack 
Bar, now popularly known as Caesar's 
Pub. from 11 to 1. 

Steve had a large audience during the 
lunch hour. His music revived all of us 
who had been through a day of classes 
and before long we were all "feeling 
groovy." As Steve played, many stu- 
dents were eating lunch and/or doing 
last minute homework. Steve played and 
sang so well he had everyone tapping 
their feet and singing along. He played 
on and we continued to jam on with 
him. He sang many popular songs of the 
60's, 70's, and 80's, such as: "Blackbird 
Singing In the Dead of Night," "I Guess 
That's Why They Call it the Blues," "It's 
a Wild World," and "Moonshadow." If 
you missed Steve, you missed another 
great coffeehouse. We hope to see you 
at the next one.

the magnificent maintenance crew from 
the versatile and illustrious one: 

A week without water 
oh no, that's not nice, 
not a person was washing 
not even the mice. 

The bo\;s of West Campus 
stood still quite aloof, 
with nowhere to go

Their bodies began to smell 
and their teeth began to rot, 
the wan we had to live,

One month later and the water is fixed 

oh wow!, quite a feat.

Aggies Felted by 
Moravian, 68-66 

By Duke Blessing 

In what is becoming a nightly oc- 
curence, the Men's Basketball team fell 
behind by double digits in the second half 
and rallied to tie the score. 

This time though, the rally was not 
quite enough as the Aggies dropped a 
non-league game to Moravian College, 

DVC had a chance to tie but Tony 
Blackwell's jump>er with four seconds left 
bounced off the rim and Moravian hand- 
ed the home team their third consecutive 

Dodd Walker led the way for the Ag- 
gies with 20 points and 10 rebounds. 
Derrick McCarter scored 16 points and 
Eric Ford chipped in with 9 points and 8 

The loss drops the Aggies to 8-7 over- 
all. League record stands at 2-6. 


by Duke Blessing 

In what has been an off year of sorts 
for Scranton University (10-7 overall. 
6-3 league), the Royals still managed to 
hold off the Aggies pressure to defeat the 
host team 67-63. 

DVC opened up an early seven point 
lead and took a 32-30 lead into halftime. 

Scranton moved ahead to stay at 
53-51 with a little over three minutes re- 
maining. The more experienced Royals 
then canned some key free throws to 
seal the victory. 

Derrick McCarter shot a red-hot 10-of- 
13 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line 
to lead the Aggies with 24 points. 

The Aggies also got 11 points from 
Dodd Walker and 10 from Mark Spotts. 

DVC has now lost four straight games 
to fall to 8-8 overall and 2-7 in the 


by Duke Blessing 

The Aggies five-game winning streak 
of two weeks ago has now been all but 
officially erased due to their recent five- 
game losing streak. 

DVC fell victim to Wilkes College as 
they once again trailed by ten points in 
the second half, on route to a 97-87 
defeat at Work Gym. 

Derrick McCarter continued to pour it 
in as he led all Aggies scores with 24 
points. Also scoring in double figures for 
the Aggies were Dodd Walker (18). Mark 
Spotts (12). and John Boone (11). 

The loss puts the Aggies overall mark 
at 8-9 and drops their league mark to 

Women's Losing Streak 
Reaches Seven 

by Duke Blessing 

What looked like a sure thing after the 
first seven games of the season has now 
become a question mark after their most 
recent seven games. 

Season *1 saw the Aggies win their 
way to a 7-0 record. 2-0 in the league. 

Season *2 has included only a seven- 
game losing streak, a 0-7 record and 0-3 
in the league. 

The Aggies now start their third season 
with a 7-7 overall record. 2-3 in the 
MAC. With this 77-66 loss to FDU, the 
women must win the rest of their con- 
ference games to get a playoff birth 
Three of their remaining league games 
are against three teams that they have 
lost to up to this point. 

Against FDU, Aimee Trunell led the 
Aggies with 19 points. Darcell Estep and 
Kim Frey scored 17 and 14 respectively.

Cabrinl Downs Aggie 
Women, 70-51 

by Duke Blessing 

The women continue to roll in reverse 
since the Christmas break as they drop- 
ped their fifth straight game, 70-51, to 
Cabrini College. 

DVC took a 24-23 lead into halftime 
but were outscored by 20 points in the 
second half to drop the contest. 

Marcey Carroll led the way for the Ag- 
gies with 12 points while Lisa Long and 
Mary Jo Bush scored 10 points each. 

The loss drops the Aggies to 7-5 over- 
ail while their league record remains at 


by Duke Blessing 

The Women's Basketball team was 
down 11-0 to Widener after the few 
minutes and went into the half trailing 

The closest the Aggies would come to 
the Pioneers was five points at 45-40 as 
Widener picked it up and defeated DVC, 

When you combine the poor start, re- 
bounding problems, and Widener's 10-4 
record, the ingredients equal the Aggies 
sixth consecutive loss. 

Kim Frey led the way with 22 points 
while Mary Jo Bush and Darcell Estep 
each scored 10 points. 

The Aggies fell to 7-6 overall with this 
non -league loss. 


January 26th's Registered Party hosted 
by Goldman 2nd can be called a success. 
For the second major weekend of DVC's 
spring semester, the weekend students 
were able to blow off steam and have an 
excellent time. The Caesar's Pub DJ and 
his attractive assistant kept everyone 
hoppin'. even the bartenders got a 
chance during their 20 minute break. (It 
did make the beer last longer.) Everyone 
had a good time. The party broke up 
around 1:(X) but by then almost every- 
one was ready to go.

A Snowy Saturdait—- — — : — : — : 

•^ "^rNow that you ve been embarrassed 

and fed you continue to look for the 

by ED. Wengryn 

Many students complain of nothing to 
do on weekends. What is worse is what 
do you do on a snowy Saturday? The 
weekend of February 2 and 3 presented 
us with one of those damp, dreary, 
snowy days. Many students wondered 
what to do. Others busied themselves. 

The morning was the easiest. There 
was a registered party the night before, 
so many students slept until 11 o'clock 
brunch. It was after brunch that boredom 
set in. Some people went to study in the 
library (that thought lasted 10 minutes 
with most); others decided to build a 
snow fort (but forts of snow do fall to the 
stuff that makes them mainly an all out 
attack); some students even discovered 
that if they got under the same blanket 
with a loved one you can actually watch 
channel 12 all day. With all of these 
choices, it is no wonder most of DVC 
could be seen braving the weather and 
heading to the mall. 

The mall is definitely the place to be on 
a snowy Saturday. Why? Well, despite 
the sales, no one is there. If people are 
there, it's because they did not want to 
stay at DVC either. 

After going through store after store 
looking for clothes. Spencer's presents a 
nice change of pace. If change was not 
what you had in mind, you can always 
try Frederick's and find something to 
wear under that dinner dance dress or 
suit. When Fredericks get boring (usually 
embarrassing first), you can remember 
that lunch was not that great, and start a 
search for food. 

pants you came shopping for. (I defy 
anyone to find gray corduroy pants with 
a 30 inch waist and 36 inch length.) It is 
at this point you realize why you can't 
find the winter clothes you want. Every- 
thing on display is summer wear (includ- 
ing the bathing suits for spring break) . So 
you decide to look for a mall exit to see if 
it really is winter out. 

What you do sec is it is still snowing 
out. So you get everyone together and 
head back. Yes. just in time for dinner at 
the DVC cafeteria, yea? After carefully 
selecting a tray (one with no cracks in it) 
you begin to plot how to get it out of the 
cafeteria so you and your friends can go 

Well, you made it out and now it is 
time to test it, but where? How about the 
hill between the cafeteria and Elson. 
Now that you know your tray works, you 
decide to get on warmer clothes and look 
for the good hills. The one behind Eisner 
Hall (the new Media Center) is not too 
bad, but for a real thrill try behind the 
Hort building (just don't rip out the ivy on 
the way down) . 

After all your traying you head back to 
a friend's room to get into dry clothes 
and a warm room. So what next? How 
about borrowing a blender and making 
Amaretta Sours to warm up on and 
watch "The Love Boat?" What's that, oh 
yea, I forgot about the nachos we all ate. 
So much for a snowy Saturday! 

It is now that students should be advised 
to return this borrowed tray after the 
spring thaw. 

What is the DVC Difference 
in Computer Education? 

(The folhwing article is by Mr. Ger\e W. 
Lewis, Chairmar) of the Computer Sys- 
tems Informatior) Management Depart- 
ment at DVC.) 

When you find a four-year school in 
the 1980's that is offering its first com- 
puter major, the initial reaction is typical- 
ly that it's just another Computer Science 
offering and "so what else is new?" How- 
ever, what is different about the new 
Computer Information Systems Manage- 
ment (CISM) program at DVC is that it is 
not just another computer science pro- 
gram but is inste2)d a merging of the 
study of computer <ipplications with busi- 
ness administration. 

To understand why this is lu-w and in- 
novative in educational circles you have 
to look at the history of computer educa- 
tion in this country. In the "60s the em- 
phasis in computers was on the hard- 
ware and how do we built it smaller and 
faster. Several of the engineering schools 
followed this development with courses 
on digital logic and design, in the '70s 
the emphasis started to move to the soft- 
ware arena with the goal being how to 
achieve maximum utilization of this in- 
creasingly sophisticated hardware by 
writing complex but efficient programs, it 
was the '70s that saw the very large in- 
crease in the number of colleges offering 
the Computer Science degree which typ- 
ically followed a fairly technical tract with 
emphasis on either hardware or software 
design or. in some cases, both. 

As we move now into the timeframe 
of the '80s the new emphasis in both 
computer use and education is evolving 
to that of "applications." Applications is 
the science of achievir^ maximum utili- 
zation of the existing computer hardware 
and software for the benefit of the end 
user. It is the ability of using the contem- 

porary computer as the powerful busi- 
ness and scientific tool that it can be in a 
wide range of endeavors. What is pres- 
ently unique about the DVC CISM pro- 
gram in this geographical area is that it 
provides a balanced blend of both com- 
puter applications and business courses 
that can provide a graduate with an ex- 
cellent set of entry credentials into the 
contemporary business world . 

The CISM program has been designed 
using the recently developed Date Pro- 
cessing Managers Association (DPMA) 
model curriculum. The DPMA is one of 
the largest international groups of profes- 
sional computer users and they have de- 
veloped this model curriculum to address 
the evolving needs of the business com- 
munity for individuals conversant with 
both computer applications and business 
system structures. At DVC we have car- 
ried the DPMA model even a step further 
into the future by recognizing the power 
of the microcomputer and the Impact that 
it is having in the business community. 
The four-year course sequence of the 
CISM tract will expose the student to 
mainframe applications through conven- 
tional language and data base manage- 
ment courses with progression in the 
junior and senior years to microcom- 
puter-based courses emphasizing such 
applications as decision making, office 
automation, and communications. 

The unique edge that we presently 
have on this geographic segment of the 
computer education market will not last 
for long as other schools start to recog- 
nize the short-comings of their existing 
computer science programs, but until 
that happens we should attempt to take 
maximum advantage of this head start as 
we introduce our program to potential 

Continuing Education 
Enrollment up at DVC 

Continuing Education enrollment for 
the spring semester at DVC is 10 percent 
higher than it was at the same time last 

According to Dr. Gerald Handler, 
Chairman of the College's Continuing 
Education Division, a total of 305 per- 
sons have registered for the spring term. 
Last year. 277 persons were enrolled. 

"I think the increase is due to a better 
awareness of the programs we have to 
offer," said Handler. "We've made an ef- 


fort to make our continuing education 
programs more visible to the community, 
mostly through a mass mailing as well as 
through advertising. These figures show 
that our efforts have been successful. 
We're looking forward to growing even 
bigger in the years to come." 

Among the Continuing Education 
programs offered by the College are an 
evening program leading to the Bachelor 
of Science degree in Business Adminis- 
tration; the basic studies program (essen- 
tially equivalent to the first two years of 
course work in most baccalaureate pro- 
grams) offered in the evening; sf)ecialized 
course sequences in laboratory animal 
management, business management, 
marketing, operations management, ac- 
counting, real estate, and computer; 
and a complete program of non-credit 

Of the 305 persons currently enrolled 
in the Continuing Education program, 
252 live in Bucks County,' 39 live in 
Montgorfiery County, and 14 come from 
either Philadelphia or New Jersey. 

Student Store - Not a Jail 

As a student employee of the Student 
Center. I am directly familiar with the 
saying, "Please take off your coat and 
put it in the coat hole," which is part of 
my job responsibility in the Student Store. 
First of all, the so-called Student Store 
policy of having customers remove their 
coats is not new or established by the 
Student Store, but was issued by your 
own peers. Student Government repre- 
sentatives last semester. 

Here at DVC, I've heard many stu- 
dents feel they are embarrassed and 
humiliated by the policy. On the other 
side of the fence it's equally as difficult to 
enforce such a F>olicy. However. I per- 
sonally feel at this point it is essential. 

Look at the bright side; our inconve- 
nience is minimal compared to Bucks 
County Community College's Student 
Store. At BCCC, students must enter a 
lobby area and pay a quarter for a key 
locker to place their personal belongings 
in before entering the Student Store. To 
reinforce this policy, a uniformed guard 
is on duty during store hours. 

The Student Center, as many already 
know, is a non-profit organization. 
Therefore, the money the store loses 
from stolen goods comes directly out of 
the students pockets. In just textbooks 
last semester, many passed the cashier 
tucked away under coats. 

Unfortunately, because of a handful of 
individuals stealing, we all have to be in- 
convenienced. The good news is, com- 
pared to last semester, a considerable 
amount of stealing has decreased alone 
In textbooks. True, college students 
should be trusted, however, as long as 
stealing continues the policy will have to 
remain in effect. 

Coming to Caesar's Monday; 
Linda Black 

Entertaining comes naturally to Linda 
Black. The -gift of witty,, spontaneous 
rapport is hers. That is the given. The 
rest has been work. 

Music was Linda's solace in a world of 
change. Before her tenth birthday, Lin- 
da's family had traveled coast to coast 
and called six states "home." Her love of 
music grew, and so did the intrigue with 
travel. After graduation from De Paul 
University, her suma cum laude Bache- 
lor's degree in music translating into 
superbly expressive vocal and instru- 
mental ability, Linda began touring the 
competitive music circuits. 

Diverse musical interests inspired eclec- 
tic sets, and she would mix popular, clas- 
sical, original, and obscure songs with 
poetry readings and anecdotes. She'd 
switch from guitar to piano to uke to 
dulcimer without missing a beat, the 
cohesion provided by incomparable 
stage presence and genuine affection for 
the audience. 

1985 marks Linda's fifth year of tour- 
ing. Those years have yielded five suc- 
cessful NACA showcases, many awards 
and commendations, over 400 college 
shows and twice as many club and caba- 
ret appearances, a book of poetry, and 
featured selections on Tunesmythe 
Records, plus a few dubious milestones: 
250,000 road miles covering twenty- 
seven states, exhausting three vehicles 
and eight road atlases. 

The miles, the experiences, the shows 
— all labors of love, all contributing to 
the development of a dynamic performer 
and an unforgettable entertainer.

A Play on Words 

by Duke Blessing 

I've been reading the "Music/Nightlife" 
column for the past who. knows how 
long and I have taken It upon myself to 
liven things up. 

In the version that only I can produce, 
here is my version of Music/Nightlife: 

This Week's Combined Pop Top 
and Country Top Ten 

Being something of a loverboy, I 
decided to cruise Heaven and find my- 
self an Easy Lover. I got into this sleezy 
habit by hanging- out with The Boys of 
Summer, where all we ran into were 
Material Girls. 

1 danced far into the night and met a 
beautiful girl. I said "Ain't She Some- 
thing Else." I felt soon after Something 
In My Heart. She held Me Against the 
Night and blew a Careless Whisper 
into my ear. She said. "You're the In- 
spiration " I told her that. "I Would 
Die for You 

We left to go back to my place but to 
my surprise she acted Like a Virgin. 
She said. "I Want to Know What Love 
Is" and I drove her home. 

Being in one of those moods. I went 
back to the dance spot. I met a Foreigner 
and I knew she liked to Wham. I turned 
a Deep Purple when she said You 
Turn Me On. 

We left, looking for A Place to Fall 
Apart and wound up at my place again. 
She was definitely into the Method of 
Modem Love and we got closer. Baby's 
Got Her Blue Jeans On, but not for 
long because of the Fire in the Night. 
She was faster than an REO Speed- 
wagon and a Joan Jett as she did a 
Neutron Dance on my face. 

It will be some time before 1 find out 
the Robert Hazard of that memorable 


Too Lcrte Now! 

It was lunch time and I was starved. I 
made my way into the cafeteria to see 
what I could eat. When I got there, I 
didn't know what to have. There was 
chicken chow mein, swiss cheese quiche, 
or pizza to choose from. I figured that 
pizza would be the best choice, as only 
God knows what is found in chow mein 
or quiche. The pizza tasted like cardboard 
with lots of glue in it. with a tomato sauce 
that tasted like sun baked tomato juice. I 
regret to say it was the biggest mistake of 
my life Perhaps next time I'll go for

Aggie Women End Dry 
Spell, Down St. Elizabeth 

by Duke Blessing 

The Women's Basketball team got back 
to their winning ways by defeating St. 
Elizabeth's College. 93-32. 

DVC led 45- 15 at halftime and coasted 
home in the second half. 

Mary Jo Bush paced the Aggies with 
20 points (10-14 shooting) while Anita 
Willis pumped in 16 points. Kim Frey and 
Joanne Toennessen each scored 1 1 and 
Doris McNeil chipped in with 10 points. 

The victory moves the Aggies up to 8-7

Scranton Crushes Aggie 
Women, 88-46 

by Duke Blessing 

The Aggies ran into a buzzsaw at 
Scranton University as the number two 
team in the NCAA's Division III poll 
crushed the Aggies 88-46. 

With the loss, the Aggies drop to 8-8 
overall, but more importantly — 2-4 in 
the league. 

DVC was led in scoring by Mary Jo 
Bush who canned 16 points. Darcell 
Estep added 10 for the Aggies. 

Spring Garden 
Hands Aggies Sixth 
Consecutive Defeat 

By Duke Blessing 

Spfing Garden College shot 72 per- 
cent from the field as they wrecked the 
Aggies for 60 second half points on the 
way to a 111-89 victory. 

The Aggies shot close to 60 percent 
for the game, but once again offense was 
not the problem. 

Dodd Walker led DVC in scoring with 
20 points. Derrick McCarter and John 
Boone scored 15 and 12 points, respec- 
tively. Bill Ross also chipped in 10 points 
in the losing effort. 

With the loss, the Aggies saw their 
overall record drop to 8-10. The league 
record still stands at 2-8. 


by Duke Blessing 

In what happens as often as a snow- 
storm in Los Angeles, the DVC Men's 
Basketball team pulled off the unusual — 
a victory over Scranton. in Scranton. 

One can argue that this is one of the 
weakest Scranton teams in recent mem- 
ory (nine losses already), but one must 
also remember that this Aggie team is 
one of the youngest ever in any league in 
any year. 

The Aggies took a 39-31 lead into 
halftime as they continued their hot 

In the second half, the lead changed 
hands several times and the issue was 
finally settled when Marty Hoffner hit a 
20-foot jump shot with one second re- 
maining to give the Aggies a 70-69 vic- 
tory — the first Aggie victory ever at 
Scranton . 

John Boone led the Aggies with 18 
FKJints and 11 rebounds. Dodd Walker 
and Eric Ford scored 14 and 12 points, 
respectively, while Hoffner ridded 12 
points also. 

With the victory, the Aggies up their 
overall mark to 9- 10 and league mark to 

MESSIAH, 70-64 

by Duke Blessing 

The Aggies evened their overall record 
at 10-10 and upped their league record 
to 4-8 as they defeated the snow and 
Messiah College 70-64. 

At halftime. DVC led 23- 18 but the of- 
fense came back in the second half to 
score 47 points for the victory. 

One of the big reasons for this Aggie 
victory was the continued outstanding 
play of big John Boone. Boone scored 
21 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, and 
blocked four Messiah shots. 

Dodd Walker and Derrick McCarter 
each scored 16 points and Eric Ford 
chipped in with eight points. 

The Aggies close out the season with 
two home games: Wed.. Feb. 13 vs. 
Lycoming at 8 p.m. and Sat.. Feb. 16

An Interview with THE HOOTERS! 

Ron Hyman & Eric Brazilian of 
The Hooters! Good job guys! 

by Mike DeRosa 

By Sonne stroke of luck. 1 was able to 
interview two members of "The Hooters" 
right before the show. The interview was 
with Rob Hyman and Eric Brazilian. I 
could see in their faces and by their ac- 
tions that both of them were really psyched 
for the show. Eric and Rob are two really 
"down to earth" individuals. I'll let you be 
the judge: 

0. How did "The Hooters" start. I 
mear} what brought it on? 

A. (Robl A fever. Eric and I formed 
the band a little over four years ago 
We'd been playing in a lot of different 
groups, and this is the last and most suc- 
cessful one of them, but we formed the 
band and then we've met the guys. Over 
the years we've had a couple of person- 
nel changes. Davy, the drummer, has 
been with us since the beginning, the 
other guys are a little newer. 

Q What made i;ou decide on using o 
"Hooter " for \;our trademark? 

A. (Robl Well why not. no one else 
was using it. [Eric] We borrowed one 
and we liked it. [Rob] Yeah, a friend of 
Eric's had one. [Eric] We actually liked 
the way it looked better than the way it 
sounded (they both laughed), actually, 
that's not true, it sounds good. 

Q. What is the name of [;our new 

A. [Rob] It is still untitled, but it's prob- 
ably coming out in a month and a half. 
or so. [Eric] Yeah, we just finished it up. 
[Rob] On Columbia Records. 

Q. What is going through your heads 
right before a performance? 

A. [Rob] Well, last night, for example, 
right when we were going on our drum- 
mer jumped tip and on his fall back to 
earth he twisted his ankle and like fell 
down. We have a tape that starts the 
show, and the tape was rolling, and we 
were ready to go out. and he's sitting 
down there, holding his leg. screaming 
"Oh shit!." What was going through our 
heads was kind of like "Well, this is going 
to be interesting!" But every night it's dif- 
ferent. We put a lot of thought into the 
shows, we get together before each show 
and kind of have a little "huddle" and 
talk about the show. [Eric] Like to make 
sure the same thing is going through all 
our minds before we go on stage. 

Q. Who is "Antenna records?" 

A. [Rob] We decided that we were go- 
ing to put out a record ourselves and go 
the independent route, so since we were 
putting out a record , the record needed a 
label, and the label needed a name, and 
Antenna became the name. [Eric] Now 
there actually is an Antenna records, on 
which there is another album coming out 
shortly by another artist. 

Q. What do you do in \;our spare time? 

A. [Rob] We haven't had much lately. 

Anything, even when we're off we're 

thinking about the music all the time and 
we're doing a lot with that. We sit down 
and do a jigsaw puzzle or read a book or 
something. Lately we've been working 
day and night to be honest. We've been 
going every day. We were playing Sus- 
quehanna University last night which 
was way up near Harrisburg. That was a 
long drive. [Eric] It's been like final's time 
for the past two months. Actually, it's 
been like six months. Since Sept. 20th 
we started the album, we have been 
playing and recording simultaneously. 

Q. Other than your own music, what 
is your favorite type? 

A. [Eric] There is a lot out there. [Rob] 
I like a lot of reggae stuff, and jazz. 1 have 
a pretty good jazz collection . Every now 
and then I go back and pull things out 
that I haven't listened to. We hear every- 
thing that's on the radio, but we try to dig 
out a lot of stuff that they don't play, and 
check out bands that are a little bit more 
out of the ordinary. [Eric] I am looking 
forward to becoming reaquainted with 
my record collection soon. [Robl Yeah, 
it's tough to keep up. 

Q. What ideas spurred on the creation 
of your most popular songs? 

A [Rob] Some of them are really hard 
and they take a lot of time and discus- 
sion, especially about the lyrics. Some- 
times we'll get an idea like a hook or a ti- 
tle and we'll have to work on the lyrics. 
"Fighting on the Same Side" came rather 
quickly as I recall. [Eric] That one was 
like a gift from above, as are many of 
them. We very rarely sit down and say 
"We are going to write a song about such 
and such." Although, that has happened 
a couple of times, but usually the words 
will come, the music will come, and then 
we'll say it's about this or that. But even 
when we decide to write a song about a 
particular subject, we'll beat our heads 
against the wall and we won't come up 
with anything, and then something else 
will come through and it'll turn out that 
that is about the thing we were going to 
write about in the first place. It's very fun- 
ny how it works. 

Q. What is life like on the road? 

A. [Rc^] There are advantages to every 
phase. The grass is always greener. 
When we're in the studio, we can't wait 
to go and play, that's why these shows 
are really great, and when we're playing 
it's nice to go in the studio, when we're 
on the road it's great because you're 
away, nobody can call you, you don't 
have to pay your bills, you don't have to 
do anything. You're just out there on your 
own. We have our own little organization 
that just travels around, and that's fun. 
But then if you're out too long you get 
homesick and you want to come back. 

Q. Everybody knows that you wrote 
and produced "Time After Time" for 
Cyndi Lauper, is it also true that you ar- 
ranged "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" 

A. [Eric] Actually we arranged most of 
the stuff on the album. [Rob] Yeah, we 
did just about all the instruments on it, 
the arranging with her producer, then 
with Cyndi, but Hazard's version was 
very different, we kind of took the music 
apart and we gave it a little bit of our 
ideas, actually a lot of our ideas, it 
became kind of a different song. 

Q. What are the future plans for "The 

A [Rob] Onward and upward The 
record will be a big test, we're going to do

Nurseryman's Association 

Regional Meeting 

by Bill Rein 

Yes, DVC hosted the Southeastern 
(E-1) Chapter of the Pennsylvania Nur- 
seryman's Association Annual Meeting 
for the second year in a row; and yes. a 
major snowstorm did occur the very 
same day for the second year in a row! 
But. despite terrible road conditions and 
slippery sidewalks, about 150 people 
(some from as far away as western New 
York state) attended the day-long meet- 
ing held January 17th in the Student 
Center APR. 

Arranged by Dr. Seik of the Ornamen- 
tal Horticulture Department, the Chap- 
ter's annual meeting was put together in 
cooperation with our local Penn State 
Agricultural Extension Service represen- 
tative Scott Geiser. and Howard Loscig. 
of Pointoview Nursery, who is program 
chairman of El. M.W. Wood catered 
the included luncheon during which the 
president of the PNA. Carl Jacobs, made 
pertinent announcements. 

After lunch, two of our very own 
faculty members — Dr. Frederick Ray 
and Mr. David Benner — spoke of 
"Underused Landscape Plants — Use 
Them." Among the many widely avail- 
able ornamentals they mentioned was. 
for example, the Serbian Spruce (picea 
amorika) . which has been in the trade for 
years now, and though it's one of the 
more beautiful evergreen trees, has still 
been ignored in favor of the more famil- 
iar, yet less dramatic, Spruce Tree. This 
was actually a chance for those estab- 
lished in the nursery related business to 
learn about those "hidden treasure" 
landscape plants which OH. majors 
at our college have already come to 

in other news . . . Saturday, three 
weeks ago. a visitation committee met to 
discuss with faculty and administration 
what has been happening in the O.H. 
department, and what curriculum changes 
could be suggested in order for our orna- 
mental horticulture graduates to com- 
pete more successfully in horticulture- 
related careers. A committee has been 
formed to this end for about four years in 
a row, and has usually met in June.

On Thursday, February 7th, DVC stu- 
dents and members of the community 
had the opportunity of hearing Dr. Den- 
nis Metrick speak on Automation. His 
speech was entitled, "Automation — Its 
Effect on Human Nature and its Mean- 
ing for the Future." Dr. Metrick presides 
over the fourth largest court in Pennsyl- 
vania, Delaware Valley Court of Com- 
mon Pleas. He also teaches at Villanova 
and is a computer consultant. Because of 
his vast experiences he has a well- 
defined perspective on the automation 
system and how it works. 

Automation has existed since the be- 
ginning when man discovered the use of 
tools such as stones and sticks. As man's 
intelligence grew, autonwjtion evolved 
and found its part in agriculture and, sure 
enough, into industry. Automation is liv- 
ing energy replaced by living energy. As 
we became more automated and com- 
puters came into the scene, automation 
has become thought replaced by thought. 
What does all this mean? Well, three 
things: an increase in efficiency, a de- 
crease in labor, and job displacement. 

Job displacement is a result of a de- 
crease in labor. Now as we are in the 
transitional stage of automation . the only 
problem enountered is job displacement. 
But as the system is refined, this problem 
will virtually be non-existent. No matter 
how you look at it, automation will not 
cease, so go with the flow. 

Keep your eyes open for future events 
sponsored by the Pennsylvania Humani- 
ties Council.

Hooters Concert — A sold out show 

cont'd from page 1 

a video, we will select a single off of the 
record, that should be happening soon, 
we're real excited about the new album 
because it's our first national release, not 
just an independent local record, but this 
one if going to get a national distribution 
and pronnotion, so hopefully we'll be 
playing in new areas and trying to spread 
what has happened in Philly. 1 think Phil- 
adelphia needs to get a good band out 
there anyway, it's like having a team go 
to the Superbowl or the World Series, 
we want to represent this area and our 
fans here. There hasn't been a whole lot 
of groups that have come out of Philly 
that have gone that far, so that's what 
we're trying to do. Spread the word. 
[Eric] Spread the word. 

Q. Do ^ou have trouble maintaining a 
private life? 

A. [Eric] There is no private life. Of 
course it's difficult, fortunately most peo- 
ple are respectful of our privacy when 
we're not working, unfortunately not 
everyone is. We do occasionally have 
problems maintaining our individual lives 
outside of this. [Rob] Because of TV we 
are recognized more and more . [Eric] It's 
flattering. [Rob] When we first went to 
New York we were kind of glad to get 
away from it, then after a couple of 
weeks nobody was recognizing us. We 
started worrying. I think of it as some- 
thing we thrive on to some extent. 

Q. All groups go through some rough 
times, do \^ou think ];ours were any dif- 
ferent, and how were they? 

A. [Rob] Everybody goes through it, 
we reached a certain |X)int where we just 
stopped playing. We had been together 
about two and a half years, we were 
managing ourselves, and doing a lot of 
work ourselves, there was a lot of 
pressure on the band and creatively a lot 
of frustration, so we stopped, that was a 
painful period. We didn't play for six 
months, we had to reorganize our whole 
thing, it got too big for us to handle. It 
was tough to find somebody else that 
could handle the situation. We hooked 
up with Steve Mountain, at that time it 
was a big decision, we had a couple of 
new players, we wrote a lot of new ma- 
terial. I think we pulled the band back 
together in a stronger way. You go 
through those periods, they still happen, 
like every couple of weeks you have a lit- 
tle breakdown , ^meone has a personali- 
ty thing or we have a bad night where we 
hammer it out. It makes yqu stronger 
and it nnakes you better, you look back 
and the unit is tighter. I think that is part 
of the process between Eric and 1, to 
create the songs and to write this con- 
stant dialogue, that is what makes it hap- 
pen. [Eric] It's like a kind of relationship, 
any kind of working, playing, living rela- 
tionship. [Rob] We spend a lot of time 
together and everybody has to respect 
everybody else, has to be developing at 
the same rate. We try to keep things as 
open as possible. I think what happens 
with bands, especially, is you get little cli- 
ques and little tangents. We try and have 
an open dialogue. Like if something is 
bugging somebody it usually comes up 
pretty quick, which is nice, we talk and 
we're real open about that. I think espe- 
cially with the lineup now, everybody is 
really tuned into each other. Every night 
before every show, like I mentioned, we 
have a little "huddle," we kind of go 
through a lot of different ideas that are 

running through our heads, whatever it 
may be. It becomes a spiritual kind of 
thing, it pulls you through, it really docs. 
It works. 

The Hooters played nearly all of their 
songs (old and new) . Among those were 
"Amore," "Hanging on a Heartbeat," 
"Concubine," "Fighting on the Same 
Side," and "Day by Day by Day." They 
finished their set with one of their most 
popular songs, "Blood from a Stone." At 
the beginning of the fourth encore. Rob 
Hyman asked "Isn't anybody going 
home?" the audience replied "NO!" Rob 
then screamed "THEN NEITHER ARE 
WE!" They played a few more songs and 
the show was over. You could feel the 
energy radiating from the band during 
the whole performance.

Flower Show Plans 

DVC's exhibit at the 1985 Philadel- 
phia Flower Show will feature a definite 
international flavor. 

The College will team with the Merrist 
Wood Agricultural College of Surrey, 
England to produce an exhibit entitled 
"Our Garden Heritage." 

This year's Philadelphia Flower Show, 
sponsored by the Pennsylvania Horticul- 
ture Society, will be held March 3rd- 
March 8th. The overall theme of the 
show is "A Touch of Britain." 

Dr. John Martin. Chairman of the Or- 
namental Horticulture Department, is 
excited about the opportunity to work 
with instructors and students from Mer- 
rist Wood, a college very much like 

"This will be a fantastic learning ex- 
perience for our students and myself," 
said Dr. Martin. "Hopefully, our visitors 
from England will learn a few things 
about our brand of horticulture here in 
the United States and we in turn will 
learn about their approach to horticulture." 

The exhibit was designed by Kathleen 
Askew, a student from Merrist Wood. 
Martin and his students have been work- 
ing to revise those plans, taking into ac- 
count the peculiarities of the Philadelphia 
Civic Center, while staying as close as 
possible to the original concept. Askew, 
along with three of her classmates (Rich- 
ard Powell, Mark Dowle, and Andrew 
King) and Geoff Ace, head of Merrist 
Wood's Landscape Construction Depart- 
ment, will arrive in Doylestown February 
21 to assist in the actual construction of 
the exhibit. 

"We'll be trying to show how the 
English have influenced American gar- 
dening," said Dr. Martin. "We'll repro- 
duce a typical old English cottage garden 
as well as a more modern version all 
within the same exhibit." 

Because of the special nature of this 
year's exhibit, DVC will not be part of the 
usual Rower Show judging. Last year, 
the College captured the Bulkley Medal, 
sponsored by the Garden Club of Amer- 
ica, for an exhibit displaying special merit 
and/or education value. The theme of 
last year's exhibit was "The Great Ameri- 
can Mail Order Garden."

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

This letter is being written on behalf of 
the students who are subjected to "week- 
end activities." With the installation of 
the new policy there has been an in- 
crease in the number of registered par- 
ties, and therefore, an increase In the 
amount of "socializing." Don't get us 
wrong, we like to party, but the atmos- 
phere at these parties is. to say the least, 
"uncomfortable." With the ratio of men 
to women being 4:1. a girl cannot help 
but feel as though she is on display when 
attending a party. 

Everyone enjoys a certain amount of 
attention, but no one should be sub- 
jected to this visual and sometimes physi- 
cal harassment. Often girls find it neces- 
sary to attend parties in groups to avoid 
these episodes, and some choose not to 
attend at all. Everyone likes to mingle 
and enjoy themselves, but it is hard to 
have fun when you are trying to avoid a 
potentially awkward situation. Sometimes 
a friendly 'dance turns into a struggle to 
maintain your dignity and self-respect. 

While some girls thrive on this sort of 
"attention," the majority of us find it 
disgusting and degrading. And further- 
more, we resent the fact that these few 
are dictating the new "social norm" on 
this campus. 

While all do not fall into this category, 
those that do should restrain themselves 
(get a grip), so the rest of us can enjoy 
ourselves in a more comfortable environ- 
ment. Also. guys, if you see this happen- 
ing, don't stand by and watch, give the 
lady a hand. 

Disgusted Women 

Everyone having a good time 

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

Did you watch the music awards this 
year? Were you surprised by the "new" 
-category? It seems to me that this society 
of ours which is supposedly trying to 
eliminate prejudice is headed in the 
wrong direction. The ALL black col- 
leges, which are still in existence, are 
tolerable. The United Negro College 
Fund is pushing it a bit. But, when the 
categories at the American Music Awards 
include such things as "Best Black Video 
by an All Black Group." "Best Black 
Male Vocalist," etc.. etc. I feel that they 
have gone too far! This is ridiculous! 
What kind of category is BLACK?! To 
qualify for this category the singers need 
only have Black heritage, no matter what 
kind of music they or their group per- 
form. Reverse discrimination is a reality! 
I'm not saying that the blacks were not 
poorly treated in the past but to turn the 
tables is just as wrong. Two wrongs will 
never make a right! We cannot try to 
make up for the past at the expense of 
the present and the future. The only 
reason to look at the past is to learn for 
the future. Why can't people just live in 
the present and accept all others for who 
they are, regardless of their color, sex. or 
religious preferences or anything else 
that makes us the wonderfully unique 
people that we are?

Media Center Open House Dear Editors 

by E.D. Wengryn 

On Monday, Feb. 11, Mrs. Davidson 
of the Media Center hosted one of the 
best open houses seen on campus. The 
event, open to students, faculty, and 
staff, contained foods that were out of 
this worid. Mr. Meyer's cheesecake was 
the biggest success of the day. Other 
edibles included crackers and cheese, 
homemade brownies, and cakes (choco- 
late and chocolate chip), along with 
pretzels, potato chips, trail mix. and 
banana chips. There was also coffee, 
tea, and soda (diet and regular). 

The event was put together to show 
off the Media Center and what they have 
to offer such as the Seminar Room, the 
colored transparency maker, the Kroy 
letter machine, the laminater, as well as 
the VCR and TV viewer. Many faculty 
and staff were there so look for your 
prof's to use some of the new ideas to 
present their lecture material and maybe 
class will be more interesting. Special 
thanks goes out to everyone who helped 
and to everyone who came! 

Media Open House 
PhcHo by Mrs, Davidson 

Dear Editors, 

1 want to use this forum to thank 
whomever is responsible for the ongoing 
construction to improve Caesar's Pub's 
(formerly the Snack Bar's) atmosphere. I 
think I speak for most commuters who 
come in to sit, relax, talk, and maybe 
even eat in Caesar's. 

The seemingly new interest in upgrad- 
ing the Student Center (which seemed to 
lack warmth, to say the least, in its first 
year of use) is greatly appreciated, but 
the question which remains is: Why have 
the hammering and sawing (which, of 
course, is needed to complete the panel- 
ing and carpentry, I know) occur during 
peak lunch and relaxation hours? In" 
other words, couldn't we have scheduled 
the work to occur when few students are 
trying to have a decent conversation, or 
who are attempting to study and eat? 
How about before and after lunch. Fur- 
thermore, most of us would have been 
happy with, say, a week or two of an- 
noying pounding, shouting, and grinding 
— but four weeks? What is the story 

1 would also like to ask the administra- 
tion to be kind enough to inform us 
when DVC is closed. We all know the 
existence of the school closing number, 
but it never seems to be used. I greeted 
many a commuting student who weath- 
ered all the hassles of driving on snow 
and ice covered, unplowed roads — 
some for twenty or more miles — only to 
tell them it was a waste of their time 
(Wednesday two weeks ago) . 

Please don't ignore those of us who 
don't live on campus. 

A thankful commuter

Under the Yum-Yum Tree 
Coining to DVC 

Under the Yum-Yum Tree, an exu- 
berant farce about a young couple shar- 
ing an apartment under a vow of chasti- 
ty, will be given at the Student Center 
APR on Monday, February 25 beginning 
at 7:30 p.m. The uninhibited comedy, 
which ran on Broadway for 22 weeks, 
will feature the Alpha-Omega Players, 
well-known national touring company 
from Texas. 

Taking potshots at the modern fashion 
for finding psychological adjustment, 
Under the Yum-Yum Tree farsically 
shows what happens when a girl who 
feels drawn to a man wants to test the 
compatibility of her romance before 

Robin is the girl who mistrusts her own 
ardent yearnings toward an attractive 
lawyer named Dave. She wants to make 
certain that what she feels is not merely 
an instinctive stirring. 

She tells her fiance that "the true test 
of a relationship isn't fun and games at all 
but stress!" Stress is exactly what this 
domestic but non -conjugal arrangement 

The young lawyer is deprived of so 
much sleep he is in danger of losing 
clients and the promise of his whole 
career. This peril ari^s not only because 
of the giri's teasindy unworkable ar- 
rangement but also because of the con- 
stant intrusions of a busy-body neighbor 
who calls himself Hogan and styles him- 
self an irresisteWc magnet to women. 

Paul R Pierce of the Repertory The- 
ater of America has directed the laugh- 
filled play, which was written by Law- 
rence Roman. Tickets will be available at 
the door. General admission price is $3. 
Students get in FREE!

and School Closing 

Here is the snow removal policy for 
those of you who are unaware of it: 

1. Please refrain from parking in the 
gravel area near Berkowitz Hall, since 
they will plow all the snow into this 

2. If we have a heavy snowstorm, staff 
members will attempt to completely 
plow the student parking lot on Satur- 
days. In order to do this, they are ask- 
ing students to park their cars in the 
lots behind the Agricultu-e Building 
and Lasker Hall by noon on that Sat- 
urday. Students should return their 
cars to the main student parking lot on 

The only way this will be accomplished 
is with your cooperation.

rm Sick of Hearing It 

by Duke Blessing 

1 am really starting to believe that some 
people have a strong need to complain. 1 
am really starting to believe that a good 
percentage of the apathy on this campus 
is directly attributable to that group of 
people who complain but do nothing 
about the situations at hand. 

The complaint that I am going to tackle 
today is: Why is the paper so small and 
why is it so boring? 

1. Most people that say this have nev^r 
seen school papers outside of DVC 
land. Most schools this size are on a 
weekly or even a bi-weekly basis and 
the papers that are larger usually have 
journalism majors working on them. 

2. Face the facts, with such a large per- 
centage of this school involved with 
agriculture — where is there anything 
exciting happening around here? 
Who really wants to read about Becky 
the Bull producing 80.000 whatevers 
of butterfat or the effort to name all of 
our trees and shrubs on campus — 
let's start with Moe. Larry, and Curly! 

3. If the people that complained chan- 
neled their energy into contributing, 
we could have a much larger and in- 
teresting paper. 

in summary. 1 would personally like to 
thank the dedicated workers on the staff. 
It is a small person who sits back .^nd 
complains, it is a big person who puts the 
time and effort into something. Congrat- 
ulations to us big people!

1. All business majors are dumb. (/*// 
remember that when I'm saumg you 
thousands in taxes or going to court 
for you.) 

2. It is better to cheat than to repeat. 
(Yes. but you can't cheat in a job in- 
terview or in a job. they will find out 
how much you really don't know.) 

3. There is not enough room in the 
library. (Only during finals is this 
true, at all other times you can find 
30 seats to your choosing.) 

4 1 drink beer for the nutritional value. 
(UH-HUH. and you smoke pot to 
calm your nerves.) 

5. Who needs graduate school, not 
me. (You don't need it as long as 
you don't desire a good job.) 

6. The school food is not that bad! 
(Yes. and $1400 is pocket change.) 

7. All Ag majors smell like animals. 
(No, I have met a few that don't.) 

8. We don't need a pool. (This is true 
as long as we have the post office 
floor during the rain and snow 

9. The Student Center has solved all of 
the social-based problems on cam- 
pus. (About as much as the Presi- 
dent of the U.S. has solved the prob- 
lems of the world.) 

10. I can't wait for A-Day. (I also can't 
wait for World War III.)

73-48 victory. 

The Aggies got off to a slow start and 
trailed 21-3 at one point. Thanks to 
some good defense and streak shooting, 
the women went into halftime down by 
only eight points at 35-27. 

Another slow start at the outset of the 
second half put the Aggies behind 55-33 
where they never could challenge apan 

Darcell Estep led the Aggies with 13 
points, while Anita Willis and Mary Jo 
Bush scored 10 points apiece. 

The loss, the ninth in ten garn»'s. 
drops the Aggies to 8-9 overall. 2-5 in 
the league.

By Duke Blessing 

Going into Wednesday night's game 
against FDU the Aggies had a 10-10 
record and a chance to finish with six

Pennsylvania Dairyman's 

The Pennsylvania Dairyman's Associ- 
ation held their annual meeting awards 
banquet January 15. 1985 at the Penn 
Harris Motor Inn. Camp Hill, PA. 

DVC's Brown Swiss herd was recog- 
nized for its achieving the honor of being 
the top DHIA herd in the state for milk, 
fat. and protein production. This was 
based on a 365 day rolling herd average 
(RHA) actual production with ten cows 
producing 16.394 lb. milk. 4.5% F. 731 
lb. fat. and 3.8% P and 620 lb. protein. 

The College's Ayrshires are producing 
well compared to the state's Ayrshire 
herds. They were second for protein, 
third for milk, and fourth for fat produc- 
tion. This was based on a 365 day RHA 
actual production with 12 cows produc- 
ing 14.451 lb. milk. 4.0% F. 571 lb. fat. 
3.5% P and 499 lb. protein. 

In 1983, the Dairy established the Stu- 
dent Herdsman program with the objec- 
tive to provide more indepth dairy herd 
management training experience. These 
are upperclass students that are respon- 
sible for the milking, heat detection, 
feeding and overall general management 
of the herd, and two student employees 
each morning's milking and part of the 

In addition, the Dairy Senior Tech- 
niques 11 Class manages Barn 2 cows 
{1984's class - 26 students - 26 cows) for 
three months. 

We arc encouraged that our students 
have pride in the dairy program and seek 
to improve their dairy management skills 
to such a point that their efforts can be 
recognized at the state and local levels. 

Also, much credit goes to James 
Quartuccio for his diligent efforts as Herd 

The undying efforts of the College's 
Administration can't be overly appreci- 
ated or emphasized. 

Aggie Women Upset 
at Lycoming 

by Duke Blessing 

The DVC Women's Basketball team

Lycoming team with a 2-12 record (1-9 
in the league). 

Lycoming raised their record to 3-12 
with a 74-71 victory over the visiting 

Down by only two points at the half. 
DVC fell behind by 16 points and could 
not quite make up the difference. 

Mary Jo Bush had a second consecu- 
tive 23-point effort to lead the Aggies in 
scoring. Kim Frey and Darcell Estep 
scored 19 and 16 respectively. 

The Aggies drop to 9-10 overall with

Senior Research at DVC 

The following article is the first /n a 
series of articles about the Senior Re- 
search Program at DVC. The articles will 
appear between now and the end of the 

The Senior Research Program at DVC 
is a unique opportunit}^ available to all 
qualified students. It is strongly recom- 
mended for those considering graduate 
school, professional school, or an indus- 
trial research career. 

This month's report is on a project b\; 
Brian J. Roberts. He was born in Avon- 
dale, Pennsylvania and grew up on a 
small family farm. His interest in green- 
house production began in 1 980. 

Brian J. Roberts is the brain child 
behind an innovative research project in 
the field of hydroponics. 

Hydroponics is a relatively new con- 
cept in the greenhouse production of 
fresh vegetables. The principle is simply 
the supplying of nutrients to plants in 
solution rather than in soil. After all. it is 
the nutrients, not the soil itself, that 
makes plants grow. Hydroponics on 
paper sounds simple, but there are many 
complications which limit the commercial 
profitability of this process. 

One of those complications is algae. It 
feeds on the nutrient rich solution (algae 
eats the same stuff as lettuce); once it 
feeds, it multiplies. Such growth of algae, 
in the pipes and gutters which carry the 
solution, clogs the capillary tubes which 
feed the plants, thus robbing the plant of 
food, and the greenhouse owner of prof- 
it. Nobody wants to raise algae. 

Brian's experiment addresses this 
problem. He says that not much has 
been done as far as research in this area, 
because it is not yet commercially profit- 
able. At this point, there is no algae- 
cide specifically labeled for this type of 

Hopefully, as the popularity of hydro- 
p>onics increases, one of these algaecides 
which are currently on the market will 
change its label. Brian's greater hope is 
that this label change will be in some way 
the result of his research. 

Dear Aggie 

Dear Aggie, 

Here's the situation: I have a crush on 
this giri — big tirtie! She knows it but 1 
really get the impression it doesn't mat- 
ter. I'm just one of the sheep in the flock 
of many. I'm not the best looking guy on 
campus but I am fun and have access to 
more things than most people. The prob- 
lem: Should I win her with money and 
good times or treat her normal? 

Going Bonkers 

Dear Bonkers, 

Any girl who has to be won over with 
money is not worth the buck in your 
wallet. Find a shepherd whose flock is 
few and just act like yourself.

who did, thanks.

Dear Editors 

Dear Editora, 

In response to the absurd letter written 
by Tim Ireland, I would like to defend 
blacks. I agree only on one point. There 
should be no special categories for musi- 
cians. If you are superior, you should be 
praised no matter what your color. But 
Timmy. you didn't do your homework. 
First of all, if you even begin to presume 
for one second that there is reverse dis- 
crimination in this powerful white world 
you must be sick! Until you have been in 
a black's shoes, you cannot begin to im- 
agine how #iey are treated. Second, 
what does an all black college have to do 
with your little music? In case you have 
forgotten Timmy ole' buddy, blacks had 
to originate their own colleges because 
whites didn't want them in theirs. And 
who has given you the authority to say 
it's tolerable? We don't need your opin- 
ion! And why is the United Negro Col- 
lege Fund pushing it a bit? The only 
whites I see giving money for blacks to go 
to college are the recruiters who desper- 
ately need them for their athletic teams, 
in order to keep their own jobs mind 
you. It is far too obvious that you are 
very ignorant on the subject of the treat- 
ment of blacks. Most blacks do not have 
and never have had (due to previous his- 
torical happenings) the financial resources 
to attend college, so why is someone 
helping blacks pushing it a bit? Face it 
Timmy, most whites don't need the help. 
And Timmy, if I was smart like I thought I 
was. I would not be in a farm school but 
rather an academically sound black uni- 
versity. And finally Tim, why don't you 
come on down to my neighborhood and 
tell some of the fellas they don't need the 
Negro Fund. I'm sure you'd have a very 
interesting day.

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

In reply to the "Disgusted Women" in 
last week's editorials, I feel that you have 
a lot of growing up to do! 

If you feel like you arc on display at 
the new social activities, it is only because 
you wanted to! 

These new registered parties are de- 
signed to keep the students on campus 
on the weekend. The parties allow 
everyone to have a chance to blow off 
steam by socializing and dancing and 
that is all! The parties are not designed to 
have girls lose their dignity and self- 
respect. It is up to the individual if she 
wants to lose her self-respect. 

If you can't go to a party and have a 
good time because the guys are drooling 
over you, then you should've gone to an 
"All Girls School!" 1 myself enjoy the 4: 1 

4:1 and I am winning! 

Future Farmers of America 

Did you notice the FFA displays in the

radio? If so. that's because the Future 
Farmers of America have celebrated Na- 
tional FFA Week during Feb. 16-23. 

The FFA has been preparing people 
for careers in agriculture since 1928. 
With it.i attention for preparing for tomor- 
row, the FFA intends to reach and main- 
tain a standard of excellence that will

by Rosemary Kluth 

The three-day weekend gave my boy- 
friend and I a chance to relax and go to 
the movies. We saw about half of Heaven 
Help Us. When we walked into the the- 
ater we knew nothing about it besides 
that it's about a Catholic boy's school. 
What we found out was, to put it bluntly, 
it stunk! The movie was offensive and 
made a mockery of the Catholic church 
(which would have been ok if it was fun- 
ny) . The plot also left a lot to be desired. 
Nothing happened in the half we saw. 
We were both dying to leave except we 
paid $10 to see it. Luckily, the film kept 
breaking so we and quite a few other 
people walked out and got our money 
back. We were so happy when we left 
that we didn't waste our time and money 
on such a terrible movie. 

But wait a minute! We did see a great 
movie. The Breakfast Club. This movie 
was about five teenagers who had Satur- 
day detention. They ail had to spend the 
whole day sitting in the library. They 
were all different types: one a jock, 
another a brain, another a basketcase, 
another a burnout. The movie involved 
them learning about themselves, their 
parents, and each other. One thing they 
learned was that they weren't really that 
different. It was interesing, touching, and 
amusing. Everyone should see it.

-That Lousy Pig Poo|> Smell" 

by Duke Blessing 

Dedicated to the people who still feel 
the cafeteria is part of the farm. 

Walking down the road 
towards that place to eat, 
mv nose started to curl 
as the smell was worse than feet. 

Yes, feet, \^ou know 
long things with five toes, 
much smaller than an arm 
much larger than a nose. 

I got inside the cafe 
as the smell went aioay. 
but here came the troops 
who in the poop they plaii. 

I sat in the back 

and thought it would do well, 

how can an^fone eat 

with that lousi/ pig poop smell. 

Five minutes later 

I then ran out of luck, 

the food that went down so good 

soon left with or\e upchuck. 

Oh please, oh ple(Ke, I beg 
wash \/our hands and feet real well, 
it's not fair to the rest of us 
to whif ^our pig poop smell.

Aggies Tie 14-Year Old 
Victory Mark 

By Duke Blessing 

Coach Les Lombard! and his team 
tied a 14-year standing record for vic- 
tories as the Aggies defeated Drew Uni- 
versity 79-78. 

The last time DVC won 12 games was 
back in 70-71. 

The Aggies finish the season at 12-12 
with a 6-10 league mark — not too bad 
for a team made up of 11 freshmen! 

Against Drew, Dodd Walker led the 
team in scoring with 22 points. John 
Boone continued his second-half ram- 
page scoring 20. Marvin Emerson and 
Derrick McCarter added 15 and 10 

Next week's paper will include an in- 
terview and. post-season wrap-up with 
Coach Les Lombardi. 


by Duke Blessing 

Lycoming College has been the MAC 
champion in each of the last two years by 
narrowly defeating the A^ies. 

With DVC losing such outstanding 
wrestlers as Mark Sands, Troy Marshall, 
Tony Tarsi, and Bruce Stranjrah, the 
'84- '85 Aggies did not kxjk like a team 
ready to challenge for the championship. 

But with the combinations of hard 
work and determination and second 
semester transfers filling some gaps, this 
Aggie team traveled to Widener Univer- 
sity with one thought in mind — winning 
the championship that they had been 
denied the past two years. 

The Aggies turned the tables on Ly- 
coming and the rest of the conference as 
they scored 113.75 points to win the 
championship. Lycoming was second 
with 108|X)ints. 

Freshman Shaun Smith was named 
the Mo^ Outstanding Wrestler of the 
tournament as he won all four of his 
bouts by technical falls at the 142 pound 
weight cla^. 

Dan Canale earned the right to defend 
his AIl-American title as he won an indi- 
vidual title at 126 pounds. 

Another freshman, Tracy Snyder, 
won the championship at 150 pounds 
and along with Smith and Canale, will be 
heading to the Nationals next week. 

Also contributing to the winning effort 
were Drew Brophy, second at 158 
pounds; Steve Canale, third at 134 
pounds; Tom Long, fifth at 167 pounds; 
Bob Cook, fifth at 177 pounds. 

Looking ahead to next year, the Ag- 
gies do not lose anyone from this cham- 
pionship squad. The rest of the league 
had better be watching out! 

Good luck to Smith, Canale, and 
Snyder and let's hope for three All-

if not, try writing 72* of material each

Aggie Women Defeat 
Upsala to Even Record 

by Duke Blessing 

In a game that the DVC women had 
to win for a shot at a winning season this 
year, the Aggie women came through 
with a 78-75 victory at Upsala College. 

Doris McNeil hit a 14-foot jumper with 
14 seconds left and Mary Jo Bush sank 
two free throws to seal the victory. 

Mary Jo Bush led the Aggies in scor- 
ing with 24 fxjints. Kim Frey, Darcell 
Estep, and Doris McNeil scored 18, 15, 
and 13 respectively. 

The win evens the Aggies overall at 
10-10 and raises their conference record 
to 4-5. 

Aggie Women Cap Off 
Winning Season 

by Duke Blessing 

The DVC Women's Basketball team 
did something that had not been done in 
eight previous seasons — they finished 
the season with a winning record (11-10 
overall, 5-5 league). 

It is also important to mention that the 
women were only a few breaks away 
from a 14 or 15 win season and a spot in 
the playoffs. 

The Aggies opened up an 18-point 
halftime lead against Drew University 
and coasted to a 79-55 victory. 

Mary Jo Bush and Doris McNeil led 
the Aggies with 14 points apiece. Kim 
Frey and Darcell Estep scored 12 each 
and Anita Willis chipped in with 10

DVC Defeats 

Nationally Ranked 

Lycoming, 63-51 

by Duke Blessing 

Head Coach Les Lombardi could not 
have picked a better opponent to defeat 
to tie his personal best for victories than 
national power Lycoming College. 

Lycoming entered the game ranked 
No. 12 in the NCAA Divisran III and 
they looked it as they jumped out to 8-0 
and 12-2 leads. The Aggies fought back 
to tie the game and even took a 29-23 
lead into halftime. 

DVC jumped out to a 12-point lead 
but Lycoming cut It to three, at 46-43, 
with three minutes remaining. 

The Aggies then went on a mini-tear 
and upped the lead to nine on the way to 
a 63-51 victory. 

John Boone scored 18 points to lead 
the Aggies while Dodd Walker chipped 
in with 15. 

The victory raises the Aggies overall 
record to 11-12 and league record to

"Sweet Country Aroma** 

Dear Mr. Blessii^, 

I, like other students, do not approve 
of the way you make accusations and 
would like to point out a few things; 
however, I am not going to be as unsub- 
tle as you have been in the past. 

First, this is an agricultural college that 
bases its learning on hands on experi- 
ence. This is in the form of our Tech- 
niques. Judging, Feeding, and Nutrition 
classes. To be able to practice these 
things which we leam in the classroom, 
we must maintain animals here at the 
school. That requires us to take care of 
them daily. The smell comes with the ter- 
ritory when animals are involved. 

Secondly, you like to complain and 
cut up the students who work at the 
Dairy and Farm 3, but remember this: 
only 3-5% of the U.S. population feeds 
the entire nation and most of the world 
for that matter. One time at a convention 
that I was attending, a lady stood up and 
stated, "Who needs the farmer, I get my 
food at the store." If you have this theory 
of thinking, you are gravely mistaken. 
I'm sure that other people don't like the 
smell and 1 myself notice it, but would 
you rather put up with a little "pig poop" 
smell or be without ham. bacon, or pork 
chops? Also, Mr. Hepner. other faculty, 
and the heads of our work study depart- 
ments devised a way to reduce the smell. 
It's not as bad as what it could be! 

Finally, some of the students help take 
care of these animals, and our schedules 
are worked around our classes. This 
forces us to eat when we come back 
from work. I get done working at 6 p.m. 
and 1 don't have the money to go out to 
eat everytime that 1 work, if you don't 
like the way we smell, you could give us 
money to go out to eat, or better yet, 
come down to the farm and help us get 
done early so that we can take a shower 
before we come to the cafe. 

If you are not used to these country 
aromas at your house, you are sorely 
missing the broadest and most rewarding 
industry in Pennsylvania and throughout 

r Sincerely, 

Brian E. Fleisher 


Results of 
Sex Poll 

Dear Mr. Fleisher, 

First of all, 1 would like to extend my 
congratulations to you for being the only 
person who has taken the time to write a 
letter concerning opposing views. You 
have a good writing style and* the paper 
could use someone like you (that's a sub- 
tle hint — Monday nights at 7 p.m. in the 
Ram Pages office). 

I do agree with most of what you say 
but I'll get to that later. 

To the thin-skinned Ag majors who 
have for some reason been offended by 
recent articles and/or poems, my objec- 
tive in writing somewhat sarcastic or off- 
colored pieces is not to knock down or 
belittle any group or individual — it is an 
attempt to breath some fresh air into 
what is becoming a stale environment 
(no side meaning intended) . 

You would be interested to know just 
how small of a minority you are in. 
Some administrators, staff and faculty, 
and many students look forward to 
something funny and have patted me on 
the back and said how much they enjoy 
reading "The Diary." For fvery one 
negative comment I hear, 1 get about ten 
positives! Not a bad ratio eh?! Even some 
Ag majors enjoy the zinging — oh well, 
you can't please all of the people! 

Brian, let me explain something to 
you and the gang. For over three years 
now. I have been hearing the bull about 
the business major and I have never 
bitched (this doesn't concern your letter) . 

You all say how we sleep all day and 
play all night. Is there anything wrong 
with getting a little even? The Ag gang 
says that this is DVC of Science and Ag- 
riculture, not of Business. Most schools 
offer much more than is written in its 
name. Philadelphia Textile has an ex- 
cellent business program. Face the facts 
— in sheer numbers, the business de- 
partment has grown every year as Ag 
slowly drops in numbers. I never have 
said we don't need farmers but many 
farmers feel they'll never need business 

Well guys, if you ever plan on making 
money you will probably need: a banker, 
accountant, lawyer and financial plan- 
ner/stock broker — most of them are 
business graduates! We need you but 
you also need us. Think about this: Right 
now. a group of business majors in 
Washington (Congress) are about to 
decide the fate of literally hundreds of 
thousands of farms — quite a bit of 
power for the B.S. in Bus. Adm! 

And as far as the business major here 
at this school, those of us at the top of 
the class are looking at Ivy League 
graduate schools and/or Fortune 5(X) 
companies. Another -figure to ponder — 
the average graduate of an MBA pro- 
gram at top ten schools with a few years

I know I got off track but you under-

some feathers but it did stir and wake 
some people up. 

I have to end with a comment which 
relates to your last paragraph. David

all farms are in serious trouble and it 
probably will grow worse."

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

I am writing to apologize to anyone 
who was offended by mv letter of two 
weeks ago. I felt as though it was tasteful- 
ly written or I would not have submitted 
it. It has become obvious to me. after 
reading^the letter in last weeks paper that 
some of the readers misunderstood my 
point. The MAIN point of my letter was 
that no one should be judged according 
to their sex. ethnic group, or religion! I'm 
glad that someone stepped forward to 
defend blacks but I don't see the need I 
wasn't attacking blacks! I was attacking 
the backwards society we live in . I believe 
that NOTHING should he totally exclu- 
sive. That is why the United Negro Col- 
lege Fund crept into my last letter, be- 
cause to the best of my knowledge it is 
available only to blacks. 1 am not totally 
ignorant to the plight of the black man 
and woman in today's society I simply 
feel that there is no way to make up for 
mistakes of the past! We must live in the 
present and for the future! Last but not 
least, in reference to "my opinion." we 
need everyone's opinion! A person's 
opinion is just one more of the things that 
makes each and everyone of us unique. 
Once again. 1 apologize for any mis- 
understandings. And. now that you 
know some of what I was tfiinking when 
I wrote the original letter. 1 invite you to 
reread it. I'm sure it will make more 
sense and be less offensive. If the etlitors 
have room 1 would like for them to re- 
print the original letter for anyone who 
does not save their paper. I am also sorry 
that this letter did not appear in last 
week's paf)er but. due to the irresponsi- 
bility of the editors. I was not notified 
before my name was slandered all over 
the front page! If I'm not mistaken, the 
policy of this paper is to notify anyone 
whose name appears in an article BE- 
FORE publication so that they liavn a 
chance to rebuttle in the same issue. 

PS If the author of last week's letter 
would like to talk. I am open minded 
and relatively eas\j to find. 


Tim Ireland 

Out From Under 
The Editors' Desk: 

To Tim Ireland, we sincerely apologi/.e

does state that a person must be notified 
if their name is mentioned in the paper. It 
will not happen again.

Philadelphia Flower Show 
Sex Poll Results 

Coming April 20 

* Superstars • 


A Touch of Brittiiii in Our Ciardett 

by Leslie E. Blatt & 
Joe Ferry 

For two weeks. DVC was touched by 
a bit of the British. Four graduated stu- 
dents and their instructor arrived on 
Thursday. Feb. 21. from Merrist Wood 
Agricultural College in Surrey. England, 
to join in on a combined effort with stu- 
dents at DVC on a Philadelphia Flower 
Show exhibit entitled "Our Garden 

Miss Kathleen Askew. Mr. Richard 
Powell. Mr. Mark Dowle. Mr. Andrew 
King and Mr. Geoff Ace, Head of the 
Landscape Construction Department at 
Merrist Wood, along with approximately 
30 students and several faculty members 
from DVC began the actual work on the 
Philadelphia Flower Show exhibit on 
Saturday, Feb. 23. The exhibit featured 
an old English garden which has evolved 
over the y 2ars to the more modem gar- 
den found in England today. Many of to- 
day's American gardens reflect the British 

characteristics and designs which have 
become an important part of our garden 

"We tried to show how the English 
have influenced American gardening," 
said Dr. Martin, Chairman of the Orna- 
mental Horticulture Department. "We 
reproduced a typical old English cottage 
garden as well as a more modern version 
all within the same exhibit." 

This year's exhibit was much bigger 
than anything the College has attempted 
at the Flower Show in the past. Covering 
1 .700 square feet, using 17 tons of stone 
and three truckloads of earth life, along 
with hundreds of different types of plant 
material, the total cost of the exhibit was 
approximately $7,000. Normally, the 
College budgets nearly $5,000 for the 
Flower Show The Pennsylvania Horti- 
cultural Society contributed some funds 
to make up the difference. The cost of 
the exhibit would have been considerably 
higher if not for the fact that 75 percent 
of the plant material was donated by 
DVC graduates. 

Because of the special nature of this 
year's exhibit. DVC was not part of the 
usual Flower Show judging, although we 
did receive the Herb Society's award for 
the best use of herbs in a display. 

Preparing for the Flower Show begins 
a year in advance. Ideas are thrown 
around and a design is created. This 
year, Dr. Martin, prodded by the Flower 
Show's designer, Ed Lindemann, a DVC 
graduate, decided to contact an English 
agriculture school to ask if it would like to 
join in developing an exhibit design. 
With a little arm-twisting, this proposal 
brought a "yes" from Merrist Wood. 
Their school is similar to DVC, not only 
in size, but in its hands-on approach to 
agriculture and horticulture teaching. 
Merrist Wood also has been a regular ex- 
hibitor at Britain's famed Chelsea Flower 
Show, held outdoors every May. 

Several designs were submitted by stu- 
dents at Merrist Wood and the one that 
was chosen was designed by Kathleen 
Askew. Dr. Martin and his students 
worked to revise those plans, taking into 
account the peculiarities of the Philadel- 
phia Civic Center (the site of the Flower 
Show) , while staying as close as possible 
to the original concept. After the design 
was all set. it was up to DVC to get the 
plant materials for the garden and force

Geoff Ace and Richard Powell. 

them. When Prof. Ace and his students 
saw the plant materials upon their arrival 
in the U.S.. they seemed quite pleased. 
Dr. Martin was also pleased with the ap- 
pearance of our plant materials except 
for the linden tree which never forced 
and is now mukh for the annual display 

The resulting garden was that of "one 
very oldy worldy type of garden, maybe 
associated with a stone cottage back 
home." said Ace, and a "much more for- 
mal garden with a circular lawn." A side- 
walk of "creizy paving" - stones inter- 
locked in a random style - wound through 
hundreds of herbs and flowers set be- 
tween drystone walls, and the exhibit 
even had a stone "keep" - the simulated 
ruin of an ancient archway - with plants 
growing from its cracks. It was definitely 
a truly outstanding exhibit. 

The highlight of the two weeks for 
those of use who were involved with the 
Flower Show was simply the making of 
some super friends and an educational 
experience we'll never forget. 

To Mark, Richard, Andy and Kathleen 
- keep in touch with all of us at DVC and 
I'll see you in May at Chelsea.

If you are a connoisseur of fine 
photography, you'll want to come see 
the curreiat library display of nauti- 
cal and wildlife profiles snapped by 
talented faculty member. Mr. Michael 

Members of the library staff are 
always anxious to encourage creative 
individuals to loan their arts and crafts 
for our monthly exhibits. Remember 
our big Wizard of Oz exhibit several 
years ago? It all started with some stu- 
dents urging a friend to tell us about a 
unique collection he had of Oz books 
and Judy Garland memorabilia. 

So, if you have a hobby or a collec- 
tion from whk;h we could des^n a 
small exhibit, stop in to see us! 
PS. Would the FF.A Club pletne 
come to pick up their exhibit m(^rials.

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

I'm a sophomore who is very sorry 
that he spent his money on the sopho- 
more dinner dance. It was obviously a 
very cheap package that was bought. 
The buffet ran out of food and it wasn't 
replenished, not to mention the fact that 
the last table to eat only had 15 minutes 

until they clewed the buffet. The chairs in 
the hall were torn and our table was 
made of plywood. 

The D.J.'s also left something to be 
desired. They were obviously amateurs. 
They played scratched records and often 
stopped the songs before they were 

The worst part of the evening was that 
no one seemed to associate with each 
other. 1 got the impression that many of 
us didn't know each other. This is due to 
the lack of class events for the sopho- 
more class. Let's try in the future to have 
more things to do together so we get to 
know the other sophomores better. 


A Disgruntled Sophomore 

Out From Under 
The Editors' Desk: 

A great deal of debate has occurred 
over the recent sex poll in the Feb. 25 
issue of Ram Pages. The responses have 
been greatly mixed. Some responses 
have been "Wow. something interesting 
in the paper." "Who cares?" and "Where 
do you people get your morals." The 
reasoning behind the article was to get 
people interested in the paper and in the 
school. The article worked, proof of that 
is shown by the lack of extra copies 
around campus (we ordered 100 more 
than usual). To the people we have of- 
fended, we offer our sincerest apologies 
for bringing up such a touchy subject for 
them. If you notice, there is a "moral" 
response choice for each question . Most 
of the responses have been positive, but 
to the response "What would the Chris- 
tian Fellowship think?," a member of the 
Fellowship wrote the poll. 

We welcome all responses, it shows 
that people do care about what goes on . 

We would also like to say that a per- 
son need not be a member of the news- 
paper staff to have an article published in 
the paper. If a person doesn't like the 
material in the paper, we suggest submit- 
ting their own material. They only need 
to sign an article and put it in Box 988. 
Names are withheld if requested. We 
reserve the right to not publish articles 
due to content. 

Thank ^ou,

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

I thought the sex poll you printed was 
quite funny. I've been anxiously awaiting 
the results. I'm glad to see Ran) Pages 
getting down to some real dirt, after all 
basketball scores and movie and record 
reviews get a little tiring. I've heard a few 
bad comments from people who found 
the poll offensive and distastefully done. 
Lighten up! I feel the poll was printed 
with the hopes of sparking some interest 
in the paper and providing a little enter- 
tainment. I don't think the poll was printed 
with the serious intent of digging into 
people's private lives or condeming any- 
one. Keep up the good work Ram Pa^s. 

Ram Hines 

Prkitahle Response 

Love and sex, sex and love. Love, 
love, love. Sex. sex, sex. It's ail I want, it 
is all I need. For you, for me, let sex be. 
For without it, there would only be an 
Adam and an Eve.

Dear Editors 

Dear Disgruntled Sophomore, 

First, I would like to say that your opi- 
nion is of no value to me because you do 
not have the guts to sign your name to 
your letter. Secondly, why can't you tell 
me your complaints up front in person, 
through my mail box or in the question- 
naire that i sent out to every sophomore. 
Personally 1 believe that you are just tak- 
ing small trivial things and making a big 
argument out of the dinner dance. Third- 



ly, I would like to give you the classes 
opinion on the dinner dance — out of 
300 questionnaires I received 33 back. 
The results were as follows: Did you en- 
joy yourself? 27 yes, 6 no; Did you like 
Bentley's? 18 yes. 9 no, 6 undecided; 
Did you like the food? 20 yes. 11 no, 2 
undecided; Did you get enough? 7 yes, 
26 no; Did you feel the price was reason- 
able? 18 yes, 14 no, 1 undecided; Did 
you enjoy the DJ? 18 yes, 12 no, 3 un- 
decided; Did he play the right songs? 19 
yes, 13 no, 1 undecided; Did he create a 
party atmosphere? 17 yes. 16 no; Over- 
all did you feel that the dance was a suc- 
cess? 20 yes, 11 no, 2 undecided. 

Granted these are not all the ques- 
tions, but they are the major ones in 
which you argue your point out. Now 
that you have the facts you can make 
your own decision on whether or not the 
dance was a success. Personally, I 
thought it went well with a few excep- 
tions which we can change next year, but 
without suggestions from the class I can- 
not know what you or the class wants. It 
is not that hard to find me or any officer 
or send it in the mail. Or is it?!? 

As for the food, I too was disap- 
pointed in the quantity and I was told 
that there would be enough food to feed 
200 people and I know there was not 
enough and Bentley's will also know be- 
cause I was sent a questionnaire to fill 
out. Oh, and by the way, you are wel- 
come to read It, just stop by and I will 
show you it. As far as your chair and 
table you can take that to Bentley's. I 
have no authority over your ripped chair 
and plywood table, but if you notice, 
most banquet halls give a cheaper table 
because they never know what will hap- 
pen at banquets. Next time I will make 
sure to check your table and chairs 
before you sit down! 

As far as the DJ. it sounds as if you are 
perfect and that just because they made 
three mistakes they are crucified. I truely 
believe that everyone is entitled to a few 
mistakes when you're just starting and 
playing to a new crowd and as far as 
songs running into one another, profes- 
sionals do it that way to keep the dancing 
beat going. Apparently you have not 
been to too many good dance halls. 

Finally, as to your last comment about 
class activities and the feeling of being 
non-sociable, did you personally make 
any effort to talk to other tables or asso- 
ciate with other groups or did you just sit 
in a corner and sulk? As for class events, 
last semester the class held Spirit Day in 
which we were to wear hats. Haunted 
House which we did and only a handful 
of class members helped to put it on. a 
Pizza Night, and finally the Dinner Dance 
plus open invitations to class meetings 
and if you had any suggestions or com- 
ments to drop them off in my mailbox or 
to see any class officer. Do you need a 
special invitation? Well here is one. on 
April 18 we will be having a Pizza & 
Movie Night in the dining hall starting at 
7p.m. with the movie beginning around 
9 p.m. in Mandell 114 and if you cannot 
make that then on May 6 we will have a 
Hawaiian Luau at the YMCA -in Doyles- 
town with free admission to those who 
put three or more hours towards A- Day 
and if you are not able to work on A- Day 
a $2 charge at the door to get in. 

If you believe that this is not enough, 
where are your suggestions? 

I would like to leave you with one 
thing, the administration had a lot to say 
about our dance, they enjoyed it im- 
mensely. I quote Mrs. Feldstein who 
said, "this has been one of the most en- 
joyable dinner dances that I have been to 
in a long time." Dr. and Mrs. Mertz said, 
and I quote. "It gives us such great plea- 
sure to see everybody having such a 
good time." Apparently everyone and 
even you pulled the wool over their eyes 
when you say that you and the class had 
a bad time. Think about it. do you ac- 
tually know what you saying?!?

L,A, is not the onli^ beer 
DVC drinks! 

DVC students began this new semester 
with a new approach to partying. No 
longer would there be room searches, no 
longer would parties have to be off in a 
corner, no longer would students have to 
sneak around like children hiding from 
their parents. 

From the start of the semester regis- 
tered parties became a weekly event. 
Everyone enjoyed the new approach. 

Then suddenly it stopped. The last 
weekend in February saw two parties 
concealed. Why? Then student's atti- 
tudes began to change. Despair replaced 
the eagerness of the early part of the 
term. Why? instead of enjoying the 
weekend here on campus students were 
leaving again. Why? 

"They had a good thing going but they 
ruined it," students remarked. What 
happened? Students will tell you that the 
Social Board is requiring all registered 
parties to serve only Low Alcohol Beer 
and students don't like it "L.A. Beer is 
for Sunday morning before church.' 
someone said. 

What actually has happened though is 
the result of bad communications. 

The Social Board cannot make any 
mandates requiring what type of beer is 
to be served at registered parties. The of- 
ficial position of the College is stated in 
Memorandum *l-85. which everyone 
received on registration day. The bottom 
line comes down to student responsibility. 

The College is not going to encourage 
the consumption of alcohol. But the Col- 
lege is not denying reality either. Mr. 
Tasker sums it up. "If you are going to 
drink, do it responsibly." That is why the 
recommendation was made to serve 
LA. Beer at the larger open parties: to 
allow for the consumption of alcohol in 
the most mature and responsible way. to 
keep in mind those who are driving, and 
those under 21 who can't legally drink 
anyway. The College is trying to keep a 
good focus on the entire issue of alcohol. 

While the College deals with alcohol in 
its reality on campus, the students are 
facing it from another angle Many feel 
cheated, like a good thing was happen- 
ing and suddenly it was taken away. 
Already the speak-easy type of parties 
are reappearing, and many students are 
going home on weekends. Some may 
even transfer out. this is not a small 

But these feelings are not founded on 
facts. Coach Wilson and the rest of the 
Social Board want to see this issue dealt 
with. There are a great many ideas in the 
air, a pub on campus? A dance hall? 
And whatever else a College can have. 
Coach Wilson wanted to see the Hooters 
concert video taped and played back at a 
Hooters Dance after the show. Some 
students wondered why it didn't happen. 

There is really no limit to what great 
things could happen here at DVC. We 
have to start from where we are. figure 
out where we want to be. and make it 
happen. We have a great many faculty 
members and responsible students who 
want positive results to come from this 
semester's new approach. 

Talk to people, like Coach Wilson, 
they'll listen. They want to make DVC a 
home away from home. 

And remember — the issue is not the 
kind of beer we drink, it is the responsi- 
bility we show and the maturity we dis- 
play that will ultimately determine the 
course we take from here. 

Let's go for it. 





by Bill Rein 

First the benches disappeared. Then 
went the bleachers. But don't worry 
folks, it was all for a good cause. 

If you happened to wonder where 
those old. institutional green benches, 
which were once found all around cam- 
pus, disappeared to. you should go over 
and see our resident senior carpenter, 
John Herbst. He has actually recycled 
good lumber and old metal bench sup- 
ports, added some ingenuity only a sea- 
soned carpenter could add. and has 
turned them into something money can- 
not buy anymore — quality furniture. 

According to the Maintenance Depart- 
ment's Jim Tooley. the Receiving De- 
partment had gathered up all our old 
benches and salvaged some wood plank- 
ing from old baseball field bleachers 
(which, by the way, are due to be re- 
placed soon). Maintenance was to try 
and use what they could to zap some life 
into the rotting benches. Mr. Herbst 
found the bleacher planks to be excellent 
seasoned yellow pine and fir. Integral 
leg-and-back supports were removed 
from each bench (some of which "looked 
like they were ready for the dumpster." 
Mr. Tooley said) . The layers of old green 
paint were removed, and the supports 
were repainted. Benches not needing 
new wooden slats were of especially 
solid oak. which. Mr. Herbst noted, you 
just cannot find anymore. The oak was 
sanded to bare wood and was revamished 
three times, leaving a clear, protected 
natural wood grain. 

Nevertheless, many of the benches 
were so old and in such sad shape from 
years of exposure to both weather ex- 
tremes and extreme people, that their 
wooden slats had to be replaced if 
anyone was going to use them as seats 
again! This posed no obstacle for John 
Herbst. who took the old bleacher 
planks, cut them into bench-sized slats, 
filled their old bolt holes with solid wood 
dowels to fit. sanded them smooth, and 
gave them three coats of glowing var- 
nish. Believe me. these benches look like 
reproductions of an antique. And yet. 
they cost us nothing except some shiny 
new bolts, paint and sandpaper. In re- 
turn we got John Herbst's expert crafts- 
manship and his co-workers got first 
hand knowledge on quality carpentry.

Under the Yum Yum Tree 

Last Monday night the Repertory 
Theater of America came to DVC to per- 
form Lawrence Roman's Under the Yum 
Yum Tree. 

The play, staged in two acts, is an off- 
beat comedy about a college freshman. 
Robin Austin, and her fiance. Dave Man- 
ning. Robin is struggling over her rela- 
tionship with Dave because she ques- 
tions her motives for loving him. She 
doesn't want a purely physical relation- 
ship, so she arranges to have him 
plutonicly live with her for the summer. 
A plan destined for failure. 

Happily, however, for the audience, 
the plan is also comical. Especially the 
character Hogan: He is charming and 
clever landlord, a real terror of the ten- 
nants in this case: Jeffery Whitman does 
a brilliant job of portraying this crazy 
character. Hogan is the type of person 
that is simply hard to understand. He is 
almost too much to handle, but he is still 
warm enough that people tolerate his 

Hogan only agitates Robin's plan to 
put her love to the test. What test? 
Stress, of course, and stress she gets. 

The Repertory Theater of America is 
based in Rockport. Texas. All the actors 
are professional They have been under 
contract since August 26. and after six 
weeks of rehearsal, hit the road to tour 
the country.

Sun., March 31, Mantis with Jahil 
PROFILE: Mantis, a local band on the 
rise, a three part mini-article. 1 have 
recently had the opportunity to spend 
some time with the band and interview 
the band. The guys made me feel like 1 
was a long lost friend. They were really 
psyched for the interview. Here is part of 
the interview. 

Mantis are: 
John Bateman (Bass, Vocals) 
Steve Cermanski (Keyboards. 

Lead Vocals) 
Mike Natalini (Drums, Vocals) 
Ira Sherman (Guitar, Vocals) 

Q: What year was MANTIS formed? 
A: [Ira] Mantis was formed in 1979. 

Q: Who started the band 
A: As far as who started the band, it was 
Steve and I. We used to be down in his 
basement rehearsing songs together, and 
we started trying owt different people. 
We have been through eleven different 
drummers, we finally got somebody. 
(Mike) Wait a minute, I heard it was fif- 
teen. (Ira] after ten you forget. Michael is 
the one that has really stuck with us and 
he is really doing a heck of a job, I must 
say so. (John) Mike will be with us two 
years in June. (Mike, jokingly] Two 
years too long! 

Q: When and wh\^ did pou decide on the 
name MANTIS? 

A: [Ira] In 1979 Stephanie Stern came 
up with the name. She's done promo- 
tion for us and she came up with the 
name. [Mike] She has done some writ- 
ing for us too. [Ira] She has done differ- 
ent articles for us and she's worked with 
us. As to why the name, I guess it is be- 
cause of the logo of the Preying Mantis. 
A logo means a lot to a band. [Mike] 
Mantis, a band that doesn't have to pray 
to be heard! 

Q: Describe i;our music. (A stereo had 
been ph\;ing a Mantis demotape in the 
background. Ira turned the volume up, 
everyone laughed.) 

A: [John] We like to think that we have a 
good rhythm backbone and meaningful 
lyrics, good melodies and harmonies. 
We like pleasing people. We don't sound 
like anybody else. We are Mantis and I 
think we have a sound of our own as 
compared to other groups. [Mike] When 
we first came out with the single, people 
from where I work said it sounded like 
Led Zepplin and Def Leppard, whereas 
the flip side (the ballad) sounds nowhere 
near those two groups. It is Mantis. We 
do everything from ballads to danceable 
tunes. [John] Our music is original — it is 

Q: What is the title of your new single? 
A: The title of our next single is "One of 
the Boys." I would describe it as a dance 
song with a good steady rcx:k beat. The 
song is about a girl who. in your eyes, is 
just one of the boys, you know she is 
always hanging out with the guys. 

Q: Who writes your material? 
A: [Ira] Steve and 1 write the stuff. Steve 
usually comes up with the lyrics and I will 
come up with the melody, with the help 
of Michael and John. John comes up 
with a lot of the arrangements for the 
songs. [John] Lately things fall into place 
real fast. [Mike] We can tell right away if 
we like the latest tunes that we have writ- 
ten together or not. 

Look for more on the interview with 
MANTIS in next week's Ram Pages. 



The Graduate Management 
Admissions Test 

by Duke Blessing 

The following information is intended 
for everyone — whether you plan on at- 
tending graduate school or not. Graduate 
school may be the last thing on your 
mind right now but a couple of years 
down the road your employer may decide 
to send you for an MBA (Masters in Busi- 
ness Administration) or some other type 
of masters degree. 

The MBA is the most popular and 
most sought after masters degree. The 
top-notch MBA programs are full time 
day programs for the best undergraduate 
students in the nation. A grade point 
average of 3.7 and a GMAT score in the 
80th percentile will at least put your ap- 
plication in the "maybe" pile. 

A majority of students choose to go 
part-time at night. With a bachelors 
degree in business, the MBA program 
can be completed in three years — five 
years for most other undergraduate 

The catch is that all MBA programs 
worth anything require the GMAT. You 
may be a business major, ag major or 
anything, but to get into any type of 
MBA program, you need to take the test 
months before entering school. 

I recommend to every junior and 
senior to take the test as soon as possi- 
ble. You will not have to worry about it 
three years down the road when some of 
your math skills have possibly flown out 
the window. You never know when 
your employer will decide he wants you 
to get an advanced degree. 

The GMAT is not a test of knowledge 
in specific subjects, it is a test of certain 
skills and abilities that have been found 
to contribute to success in graduate pro- 
grams in business and management. 

The GMAT consists of multiple-choice 
questions which are divided among eight 
separately timed sections; the total 
testing time is about four hours. 

There are five different areas covered 
on the test: problem solving, data suffi- 
ciency, reading comprehension, analysis 
of situation and writing ability. 

At first look the test seems unbeatable, 
but if you prepare the right way, you can 
rip your way right through it (even you 
Mr. X)! 

I took the test on January 26 and felt 
extrernely confident when it was over. 

I applied to take the test last September 
(for the January 26 date) and purchased 
three books to study from. Each book 
was loaded with math questions, usage 
questions and a lot of other helpful tid- 
bits The books also contained actual 
GMAT tests given in previous years. 

After 14 weeks of studying. 10 actual 
timed exams and countless math prob- 
lems — I was quite ready to take on the 

All the preparation paid off because 1 
got a 660 out of 800. the 92nd percentile! 

If you start now there is a test June 15 
which can be had if you put the time in 
— but do it now before you are away 
from school too long!

As a high school senior in Dover. Pa.. 
Shaun Smith won the state champion- 
ship and with that honor came recruiters 
from wrestling powerhouses. 

After a brief stint at Lock Haven Uni- 
versity. Smith was not quite sure that 
school was for him and he left before the 
season got underway. 

Lock Haven's bss was definitely DVCs 
gain as Smith, after sitting out for over a 
year, enrolled at DVC and worked his 
way into shape and eventually the start- 
ing lineup. 

First came an undefeated season with 
every victory coming by way of technical 

Next was an M.V.P. performance in 
the MAC championships won by the 

Finally, Smith became All-American 
Shaun Smith as he placed first in the 
Division III National champions at 
Augustana College in Rock Island. Il- 
linois (the same college that produced 
the Cincinnati Bengals starting quarter- 
back Ken Anderson for all you fellow 
trivia heads) . 

Smith won four matches to earn the ti- 
tle. He started by defeating Paul Van 
Osbee. the number three seed, 6-5. 

in his next match Smith defeated Ken 
Pratt of Cortland State. 15-6. 

in the semi-finals. Smith crushed four- 
time All-American Tom Hall of Augsburg 
College. 22-10 

In the finals. Shaun defeated the 
defending national champion Dan Pan- 
taelco. (who had a record 78 consecu- 
tive victory streak snapped in the pro- 
cess). 8-4. 

The following is from an interview 
conducted with All-American Shaun 

Q: What did \;ou do during that year 
away to keep in shape? 
A: I ran a lot and played quite a bit of 
tennis because somewhere in the back of 
my mind I knew that I would be wrestling 
somewhere at sometime. 

Q: Did ^ou think in September that \;ou 
would be wrestling this January;? 
A: I really was not sure until I actually 
said yes a few weeks before the semester. 
Coach Marshall talked to me a lot about 
coming here and now 1 am glad I did 
Q: Did you personally feel that the layoff 
would have an effect on you? 
A: I did not really know until I actually 
got on the mat. My first two exhibition 
matches were close, closer than they 
should have been. My stamina and tech- 
nique were pretty hard to pick up on 
right away. 

Q: What were your expectations in going 
to the national tournament? 
A: My goal was to place in the top eight 
and be an All-American. It was not until 
after the semi-final match that I realized 
that I could actually win it all. 
Q: What was the first thought or feeling 
that went through you when the buzzer 
went off and the last match ended? 
A: I really could not believe that I had 
won it. 

Q: Being undefeated during the season. 
MVP at the MAC Championships and 
placing first at Nationals: what are your 
goals for next year? 

A: To win the MAC's again and place in 
the top eight at the Division I National 

Q: You are at the top now. looking 
down, what will help you and motivate 
you to stay there for the next three 

A: I have achieved a goal of mine early, 
but there are other goals. People will be 
gunning for me but 1 know how sweet it 
is at the top and I want to stay there. 
Once you have tasted it. it's enough to 
push you to work hard and stay. 
Q: Any closing thoughts or comments? 
A: I could not have done it without 
Coach Marshall and his belief in me. My 
partners were a great help and I have got 
to thank Dan, Steve. Tracy and Drew for 
pushing me the whole time. 

I would personally like to congratulate 
Shaun for an excellent season and wish 
him luck in the next three years at DVC 
— you made some people proud Shaun!

Superstars Weekend!

NOTICE; The opinions expressed in any individual article do not necessarily reflect the viewpoint of the paper or school 

by L.E. Biatt 

The Annual Alumni Phonathon was a 
total success according to Director of 
Alumni Affairs, Jim Trainer. For five 
days last week (Sunday, March 17 to 
Thursday, March 21), approximately 40 
students and 25 alumni sat in the lobby 
of Lasker Hall on the telephone calling 
alumni of D.V.C. 

The Phonathon is held one time each 
year to aid in the Annual Giving Cam- 
paign. An effort is made to contact as 
many of the alumni as possible. The goal 
of the entire Annual Giving Campaign is 
$300,000 and ends on June 30, 1985. 
Prior to the Phonathon, approximately 
$150,000 was raised. During the 
Phonathon, a total of $51,280 was 
pledged with 656 alumni responding to 
our calk. (X the 656 alumni who pledged, 

158 were new givers (they nevef gave 
money to the Annual Giving Campaign 
before this year). The money raised, if 
unrestricted, will help to keep the cost of 
tuition down . It was a good time as the 
alumni enjoyed hearing from the stu- 
dents and the students enjoyed talking 
with alumni. 

This year there is a special addition to 
the Annual Giving Campaign. An anon- 
ymous donor has challenged the gradu- 
ated classes of the ^'s to match dollar 
for dollar each gift made to the Annual 
Giving Campaign up to a total of $25,000. 

Mr. Trainer and the rest of the Alumni 
Office Staff would like to thank everyone 
who help)€d out with this successful event 
as they were happy with the turnout and 
thankful for all pledges 

An Afternoon with the Classics (page 2) 

From the Infirmary 

Several colleges have recently had 
measles epidemics which have received 
notoriety in the news. It is the policy at 
D.V.C. that students immunizations be 
up to date and recorded in the health 
records kept in the infirmary. Included in 
the Report of Health Evaluation form are 
questions regarding a history of cither 
measles itself or measles vaccine. Please 
check with your parents or family physi- 
cian to be sure you have immunity 
against the disease. If you never had 
measles or had the measles vaccine 
before 1969 you should receive the vac- 
cine. Check with the infirmary if any 

If everyone has immunity to the 
disease, a measles epidemic can be 
averted at D.V.C. 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Ukranian Easter Egg 

One of the traditions of Easter is the 
making of Easter eggs. The people of 
Slavic background have taken this pro- 
cess and made it literally into an art form. 
These so called Unkranian Easter eggs 
go far beyond the Easter eggs that we 
made as children. 

Since beeswax is involved in the pro- 
cess of making Ukranian Easter eggs, the 
Apiary Society will be sponsoring a 
workshop on making Ukranian Easter 
eggs starting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 
2, 1985 at the Bee House. At this time, 
you will have the opportunity of trying 
your hand at making an Ukranian Easter 
egg, and hopefully you will have a mas- 
terpiece to take home with you for 

The workshop will be conducted by 
Miss Veronica Paris. D.V.C.'s resident 
Ukranian Easter egg expert. The meeting 
is open to all interested members of the 
D.V.C. College Community, and the 
Apiary Society invites anyone interested 
to attend. 


As spring approaches, our minds tend 
to turn toward thoughts of sunbathing 
and Softball games. Plans for sitting out 
on warm evenings and enjoying the 
summer tend to occupy our minds. On a 
college campus, however, spring brings 
not only thoughts of relaxation and sum- 
mer fun, but other thoughts as well. 
Term papers will soon be due and final 
exams are following close in their tracks. 
Any work you may have let go, while 
enjoying a spring day perhaps, is now 
lingering, waiting for your attention. 

If you are a senior, you must begin to 
say goodbbye to close friends with whom 
you have grown. You must also make 
decisions such as, 'what do I do now?'. 
Will you go on to graduate school? Move 
home? Get a job? What job? 

Underclassmen are faced with many 
decisions too. What kind of job do I get 
this summer? How do I get the money to 
return next year? Have I chosen the right 

All these questions add to pressure; a 
pressure that is already high, due to the 
demands of finishing a semester. Stress 
is the result. Too much stress can lead to 
prdjiems that make it difficult for people 
to make good decisions. It can lead to 
distraction and a lack of concentration 
that inhibit the ability to study well and 
write good papers. Stress can wind you 
up so much that you find it hard to sleep 
or exhaust you to the point that all you 
do is sleep. One of the biggest problems 
of stress is that it is self-perpetuating. The 
more stress you feel, the less well you 
function and poor functioning only in- 
creases your stress. 

Well, there is nothing you can do to 
stop spring from coming and if spring 
comes, you know that the end of the 
semester is not far behind . So does that 
mean you must grit your teeth and simply 
try to push your way through with the 
hope that you can survive the stress and 
pressure that you know is coming? That 
is one way and it may work, but there 
are ways you can prepare yourself for 
the stress so that the blow is not so 
strong. There are also things you can do 
to reduce the amount of stress you must 
endure. Stress management involves 
learning to manage and control a wide 
range of life skills and activities. For ex- 
ample, there are changes you can make 
in your diet that can help your body be 
stronger and more efficient in withstan- 
ding stress. There are also exercises and 
breathing techniques that can help with 
this. Learning to plan time better and to 
use time efficiently can help to reduce 
stress even before it starts. Relaxation 
techniques and biofeedback (a method 
which uses sensitive instruments to 
monitor and help people leam to control 
body functions, such as heart rate and 
blood pressure) , can be very effective in 
helping people cope with the stress they 
do experience. It is not possible to elimi- 
nate stress, but it is possible to reduce it 
and effectively cope with it. 

If you are interested in learning more 
about how to deal with stress, stop into 
the infirmary 2:00-5:00 on Wednesdays 
or 5:00-8:00 on Thursdays and ask for 
Reb or Kathy. Or give a call to Reb 
Brooks at the Lenape Valley Founda- 
tion, Biofeedback and Stress Manage- 
ment Center (822-7510). It could make 
for a much more relaxing and enjoyable 
spring and summer. 


DVC Pride 1858, owned by Delaware 

Valley College, has been selected as a 

1985 "Pathfinder" cow. 
The guidelines used in determining 

Pathfinder status are: 

1. Beginning with her first calf, all 
calves calves must have been 
recorded on AHIR. No irregular 
weanings or calves by commercial 
sires are used in the analysis. 

2 . A weaning weight must have been 

processed on a calf bom after 
June 30, 1983. 

3 . A cow must have had her first calf 

at an age equal to or less than the 
average age of the herd at first 
calving, plus 30 days. 

4 . She must maintain a regular calv- 

ing interval which is determined as 
follows: Number of Calving Inter- 
vals(30) -f 365 = Maximum 
Calving Interval 

5 . A cow must have produced at 

least three calves with an average 

weaning ratio of 105 and these 

calves must have been evaluated 

with at least 9 other herd mates. 

DVC Pride 1858 has produced 5 calves 

with an average weaning ratio of 107, 

and has met the rigid requirements for 

early calving and regularity of calving. 

Ukranian Easter Eggs 

One day a poor peddler went to the 
marketplace to sell a basket of eggs. He 
came upon a crowd mocking a man who 
staggered with a heavy cross on which 
he was about to be crucified. The ped- 
dler went to his aid, leaving the basket by 
the roadside. When he returned, he 
found the eggs transformed into ex- 
quisite designs of bright colors. The man 
was Christ and the peddler was Simon, 
and the eggs were to become the symbol 
of the rebirth for all mankind.

PROFILE: Mantis, a local band on the 
rise, a three part mini-article. Here is the 
second part of the interview with MAN- 
TIS. Since the interview I have spend 
much time with the band and have 
listened to them play even more. They 
are GOOD!!! Try to get out and see 
them, you won't be sorry! 
Mantis are: 
John Bateman (Bass. Vocals) 
Steve Cermanski (Keyboards, 

Lead Vocals) 
Mike Natalini (Drums. Vocals) 
Ira Sherman (Guitar, Vocals) 

Q:7How often do {^ou practice? 
A: [Iraj We try to get in three or four 
nights week, with us playing Fridays and 
Saturdays. We try to get in Monday. 
Wednesday and Friday. 

Q'.SWhat are you thinking of right before 
\;ou go out on stage? 
A: [Ira] I'm thinking, hopefully the peo- 
ple are going to like the show and have a 
good time. [John] What 1 won^y about is, 
how much of the stuff that 1 buy like 
bracelets, bandanas, and jewelry— stuff 
that I have hanging off my clothes is go- 
ing to be left when I'm done. I think of 
the money we have spent in the last two 
years on stuff and the kids they just rip it 
right off. 1 definitely think about the au- 
dience I want to go out there and 1 want 
the people to be happy. I'm definitely go- 
ing to do my best. I worry more about 
everybody else doing their job than 
about myself. [Mike] I think about how 
we are going to go over. I want to go 
over so good because I know we've all 
been doing this for so long. I just want to 
make sure that the people are going to 
be happjy. They are out there paying 
their money to see us, we have to go out 
there and give them their moneys worth 
and more. We have to go out there and 
be a band— be the band they came to 
see. [Steve] What I am thinking is, how 
can I motivate those people out there? 
What should I do to make everyone in 
that place have a good time? If 1 look out 
there and 1 see somebody that is not 
smiling I'll run over to them, stand right 
in their face and make them smile. 1 want 
everyone to have a good time. 

Q:9Does MANTIS have a message— are 
l>ou trying to say something? 
A: [Steve] I have been doing that with 
music aH my life. If you believe in 
something you should go for It and never 
think twice about it. Give it all your effort 
and be glad you did because someday 
you will look back, if you don't do it and 
say "hey I should have done that!" If you 
are happy with being a plumber, be a 
plumber but be happy that you are. 
[Mike] We want to sell smiles— That is 
what we want to do. We want everybody 
out there to be happy. Everybody wants 
to make people happy, and thaMs what 
we are out there for. [John] No matter 
how tough things get out there— In life in 
general— Always think that without 
music what is there? [Ira] Even the 
richest boy is poor without music. 
Basically all our songs usually deal with 
everyday life, relationships with different 
girls. Alot of our songs are based around 
girls. Our songs are about relationships. 

Q'.lOWhat keeps MANTIS going? 
A: [John] Our fans. [Mike] Our fans 
definitely. [John] The people that keep 
telling us not to give up. that we are go- 
ing to make it. I can honestly tell you that 
there have been days when I say to 
myself "What am I doing?" and there are 
days when I think "Tomorrow, it is going 
to happen tomorrow!" It is other people, 
people that like us and come out every 
weekend. Even people that don't know 
us and come to see us for the first time, 
they come up to us and say "You're go- 
ing to make it— you're good— don't give 
up!" There is something about our tunes 
that stick with them. That is what keeps 
Mantis going. [Mike] It's the people, our 
fans. It is the people. [Steve] I get letters 
and phone calls everyday, saying "we 
love the band" The response like that is 
the only thing that keeps us in there. We 
have been through so many rough times 
that any situation could arise— bad or 
whatever— and we could handle it. So 
many times you feel like hanging it up 
and saying "look we are not going to 
make it. Why are we doing this?" We will 
be the first ones to take is out on each 
other, but there is a love here. The 
response we get from the people make it 
worth it. If it wasn't for the people there 
would be no reason for going on . When 
they come up and say "you are good 
keep going!" that is what keeps 
you going. 

Q: 1 1 Where is Mantis playing in the next 

few weeks? 

A: April 5 and 6: Yesterdays. 

King of Prussia 

April 12: Chuck-e-Cheese. Norristown 

April 19: Tony's Tavern. Ziglersville 

April 20: P.M. Lounge. Willow Grove 
Navy Base 

April 26 and 27: Coletti's. Norristown 

May 3: The Galaxy. Sommerdale N.J. 

Q:l2What does the future look 
like for MANTIS? 

A: [Mike] It looks like a lot of fun, it looks 
definitely like a lot of fun. [John] And a 
lot of hard work. [Mike] A lot of hard 
work, but I can honestly say for the two 
years that I have been with the band it 
has been loads of fun. [John] The future 
for Mantis looks like whatever our fans 
want it to be. [Steve] Bright, very bright, 
it's obviously not going to happen over- 
night. It's going to take a long time, but it 
is a slow step by step type of thing. We 
will be there and we will record and we 
will tour, it's just going to take a Jong 
time. The thing to remember is that you 
meet the same people on the way up the 
ladder that you do on the way down 
You have to take it as it comes— step by 

As a last comment the band stressed 
their involvement with the Variety Club. 

They also wish to thank their Roadies: 
Buddy, Mark, Steve. Mike, Jim, Chris, 
Wayne and Chris.

by Dr. Bcrthold 

During our Annual Career Day, I had 
the opportunity of spending quite a bit of 
time with Dr. Roger Locandro. the Cook 
(Rutger Agricultural School) College 
Dean. During this time, we spoke with a 
number of our students, and 1 was sur- 
prised to find that many of them had no 
concept as to how a graduate education 
is financed. 

In the case of Liberal Arts majors in- 
cluding those majoring in Business and 
related fields, most students have to 
finance their own graduate education. 
However many business graduates have 
thier graduate educations financed by 
their employers. 

For those students majoring in 
Agriculture and in many of the sciences, 
financing a graduate education is fre- 
quently a different matter Many 
graduate school departments have 
available research assistanceships and/or 
teaching assistanceships for qualified 
students, and depending upon the situa- 
tion, often a "B" average is enough to 
qualify. Currently at the two colleges that 
I checked, graduate assistants are beging 
paid about $7,000 per year, and their 
tuition is waved. In most instances, this 
assistanceship is also tax free. 

Many of the students whom Dr. 
Locandro and I talked with first said that 
they couldn't financially afford to go on 
to graduate school after the costs of four 
undergraduate years. However, if you 
are interested and if you have the 
academic credentials, you really should 
look into the possibility of attending 
graduate school. 





On Sunday, the 24th. the Liberal Arts 
department presented "An afternoon with 
the classics". Mrs. Roberts. Mr Durmer 
and the members of the chorale 
pre^nted the classics. 

The show began with Mrs. Roberts us- 
ing her strong voice to sing some classical 
favorites. Her last song, "1 bought me a 
cat", was the crowds favorite. 

Mrs. Roberts turned the show over to 
Mr. Durner on the trombone and Jenifer 
Mease on the flute. The two instruments

Then, Mr. Dumer went solo on the trom-

Mr. Durner created very lively music. 

When Mr. Dumer finished, the show 
was turned over to the chorale. Mrs. 
Roberts conducted and Leslie Blatt and 
Donna Lazarus accompanied. Their selc-

song being "The Lord's Prayer."

Dear Editors 

Dear Editon, 

I have heard that people on campus 
get their kicks by destroying other peo- 
ple's property. This was done by 
discharging a fire extinguisher under 
doors while the occupants were asleep. It 
was very irresponsible of the students to 
commit to such an action . 

The fire extinguishers are there for a 
purpose. Let them serve their purpose 
and nothing else. 

If there had been a fire that evening, 
what would have occurred?

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

One of our new gardens on campus, 
the Hillman garden next to the library, 
was a great addition to our campus. It 
turned out really nice but the garden 
itself and the area towards the 
greenhouse are very dark at night. Peo- 
ple going to the greenhouse complex to 
study walk from, in back of the cafe, to 
the greenhouses and trip over metal rods 
or pipes sticking up above the ground. I 
think the Hillman garden should have 
small lights (and benches) and either a 
street light on the telephone pole or spot 
light on a tree to light up the grass area. I 
think this is something that should be fix- 
ed or looked into before someone breaks 
a leg. 

The campus seems to be getting a little 
better at nights because of more lights be- 
ing put up; lets keep this going and il- 
luminate the rest of those dark spots.

Cinderella, in the form of the Villanova 
Wildcats, is going to the ball to be held in 
Lexington, Kentucky. 

This black-tie formal affair will also in- 
clude three other invitees, all of whom 
were expected to show up from the 
beginning: Georgetown, St. John's and 
Memphis State. 

Unlike Georgetown and St. John's, the 
Philadelphia Main Liners had four difficult 
road blocks in their path to the Final Four, 
and in each game, the Wildcats were 

The odds- makers and so called experts 
are eating crow and wondering what went 

Villanova started the 64-team competi- 
tion ranked 8th in the Southeast region 
(somewhere around 3()th overall). 

The Wildcats got the ball rolling as they 
defeated Dayton, on Dayton's home 
court, 61-59. 

Next for Nova came the Mkrhigan 
Wolverines. Michigan came into the con- 
test as the number 1 ranked team in the 
region and the number 2 ranked team in 
the entire nation. 

Led by Dwayne (D-Train) McClain's 20 
points and a tenacious zone defense, the 
Wildcats pulled off an incredible upset in 
confusing the Wolverines, 59-55. 

Upset number three was a rematch 
with the Maryland Terrapins. Ed Pickney 
scored 16 points and snared 13 rebounds 
and the Cats held All-American Len Bias 
to 8 points (on 4 for 13 shooting) and 5 
rebounds as Rollie's gang defeated Lefty's 
gang. 46-43. 

The final shell shock on the way to the 
Final Four was the Wildcats man handling 
of North Carolina. 56-44. 

Villanova out scored the Heels. 39-22, 
in the second half on the torrid shooting 
of Harold Jensen (5 for 7) and Harold 
Pressley (15 points). 

It is refreshing to see a team like 
Villanova make the Final Four, not only 
because they are a Philly team, but 
because they stand for what a 
student/athlete ought to be. 

In this vain, a Georgetown vs. 
Villanova final would be the ultimate 
complement to college athletics. Two 
teams who put the books ahead of the 
ball and players who have a love for their 
teammates, not just for themselves. 

No predictions from this corner because 
we know who should win the title. But we 
also know who this year's real winner is 
for getting there, for going by way of the 
road less traveled (Dr. Heath, that was off 
the top of my head!) . 

The ugfy duckling Wildcats, nobody's 
team two weeks ago. everybody's team 
now!— you are the real winners! 


The Animal Husbandry Department 
is pleased to announce that the 3rd An- 
nual 4H-FFA Livestock Judging Con- 
test sponsored by the Animal Husban- 
dry Department and the Block and Bri- 
dle Club will be held on Saturday April 
13, 1985. 

It is expected at some 150-200 4H 
and FFA members from New Jersey 
and Pennsylvania will be on our campus 
from 8 am to 4 p.m. During this time 
they will judge seven classes of livestock 
and each give three sets of oral reasons.

carrying out the contest. Members of

Men's Basketball 



by Duke Blessing 

Compared to previous years, this 
year's Del-Val men's basketball team en- 
joyed quite a successful season. 

Their 12-12 overall record was the 
most victories in one season since 
the 1970-1971 team coached by 
John Silan. 

This record is considerable when you 
stop to realize that the roster was filled 
with inexperienced freshmen. 

The highlights of the 1984-1985 
season included the second consecutive 
victory in the Big Brothers Tip-Off 
Classic, defeating division III national 
powers Lycoming and Muhlenberg, 
beating Albright for the first time in the 
school's history and defeating Scranton 
University on the road. 

Caught between a rock and a hard 
place, coach Les Lombard! molded this 
baby-faced group of kids into a more 
than respectable team. 

At the annual basketball banquet Eric 
Ford was named the Most Valuable 
Player. Ford, a 5-6 guard, broke a 
school record with 156 assists and scored 
8.7 points a game. 

John Boone received the Most Im- 
proved Player award by scoring 10.2 
points a game and hauling down 6.8 re- 
bounds a game. 

Dodd Walker won the High Score 
award by way of his 16.2 average and 
Derrick McCarter got the Coaches award 
with 13.5 scoring average. 

The Calvin P. Kidder award went to 
Erroll Patterson. This award is given an- 
nually to the player who combines good 
sportsmanship with basketball and high 
academic standing. 

Other varsity letter winners included 
Marvin Emerson. Tony Blackwell, Mar- 
tin Hoffner. Bill Ross. Mark Spotts. and 
Paul Sterling, as well as managers John 
Litzke. Lisa Serbin and Connie Hajioan- 

The banquet was also the place where 
coach Lombard! officially resigned as the 
men's basketball coach. 

After seven years at the helm, coach 
Lombard! decided it was time to spend 
more time with his wife and children. 

Lombard! came to Del-Val after stints 
at all the lower levels of coaching, in- 
cluding a few years with Winston Chur- 
chill High School in Potamac, Maryland, 
where he guided his team to consecutive 
county titles and a state championship. 

One of the highlights of his coaching 
career is the victory by his Metro 
(Washiiigton) All-Stars over the United 
States All-Stars in the nationally know 
capital classic. 

When you look at the job Lombard! 
did with this all-freshman team, you 
have to stop and think what they would 
have been like with a few experienced 

They say experience counts for a few 
wins a year. Who knows, maybe 16-8, 

It would have been very easy to throw 
in the towel but Lombard! stuck with the 
team and made them believe in 

Now the recruiting trips are over (or 
put on the back burner) . Dinner at home 
with the family sounds better then dinner 
at the closest fast food joint to school. 

Coach, as this team gains experience 
and is complemented by some recruits, 
you will be able to sit back, knowing that 
you got the ball rolling. Good guys don't 
finish last, they go out just as they came 
in - as winners! 

Take care of yourself coach and learn 
how to enjoy relaxing, but don't get tCK> 
comfortable because you know someday 
that you will get the itch and . . .

Four years and four championships! In 
the Open League Intramural champion- 
ship game the Rebels defended their title 
for the third straight year, defeating the 
Majestic Enforcers, 67-64. 

Coach of the year, Blessing (thanks 
Tone-Bone) and head assistant, Dan 
Glowatski, guided their troops to a 6-2 
record during the regular season and a 
3-0 sweep in the playoffs. 

The Rebels consisted of the ballhandling 
and outside shooting of Rob O'Connor. 
Willie Sanders, and Chris Jensen and 
the rugged inside play of Steve Sissel, 
Eric Cross, Gary Kemberling, Gary Goff 
and Clay Funk. 

The team travels to LaSalle College 
this week to play in an intramural cham- 
pion tournament. 

Salute to the victors!

Wednesday from 10:30-3:30 and time for 
all you brave people to get the gumption 
up to help save a life Giving blood is not 
hard it doesn't hurt and excuses don't 
help. People who have been rejected at a 
previous date should try again as chances 
are you will be accepted. Giving blood is 
something that is meaningful as the blood 
is used by the local hospital to help acci- 
dent victims, people getting operations 
and need transfusions. These are people 
just like you and one day you may need 
an operation or transfusion and knowing 
you gave blood will make you feel com- 
fortable the blood is there.

college students. NSSA has developed 
two new programs to help undergrads 
(freshmen and sophomores) and gradu-

The rumor is a fact! Millions of dollars 
in scholarships, grants, fellowships and 
other financial aid go unused each school 
year because students simply do not 

According to the Regional Director of 
NSSA, the amount of funds which is un- 
used by the public is enormous. How 
many scholarships, grants and fellow- 
ships that are bypassed, because of the 
physical impossibility ot the student to 
personally research the hundreds of mil- 
lions of dollars in financial aid provided 
each year, is not known. We do know 
that the money is there, and is not being 

Practically all students, regardless of 
scholastic achievement or family income 
can and do qualify for many forms of fi- 
nancial aid. The NSSA Regional Center 
has over 3 billion dollars in its data bank,

Sounds as if your boyfriend is lacking in decency

identify the problem, weigh the good and the bad 
things about the situation, then sit down with him

Maybe you will bring things out that he was not

Dear Editors 

Dear Editors, 

Here we are approaching another 
spring at DVC. 1 cordially invite every- 
one to tour our campus and see The 
Snake River bed (between the Student 
Center and Work Hall). Pancho's All 
Night Parking Lot (Ulman and Work), 
and the State Thruway (between Wolf- 
sohn and Goldman). Where are they? 
Do we have these wonders? The former 
was a description of the campus roads 
and roadsides. 

I want to use this time to address a 
very severe problem on this college cam- 
pus, namely, vehicle traffic around dor- 
mitories, athletic events, the Student 
Center and the damage that occurs. - 

Despite the College rules and regula- 
tions, despite the number of traffic tickets 
issued and paid, people park and drive 
wherever they please. The result is a 
campus which appears to have no real 
pride in itself. There is no one person or 
party to blame for this damage, the Col- 
lege community as a whole is responsible. 
There are those who pull their vehicles 
off the road to watch a soccer or field 
hockey game, there are those who park 
their vehicles around the dorms for 15 
minutes or overnight, there are those 
who drive around these parked cars, and 
there are those who simply drive on the 

Currently we have so-called "fire 
lanes" around the buildings on this cam- 
pus. These lanes are the only means of 
access for all people to get to and from 
the buildings. Now let's face it. the road- 
ways cannot accommodate two-way 
traffic, parked cars or large vehicles. The 
result is tire ruts, broken road edges, pot 
holes, compacted soil. etc.. all of which 
deface the appearance of the college in 
the eyes of the public, let alone in the 
eyes of ourselves. 

r The following are some suggestions 
and solutions to the problem: 

1 . Widen and curb certain roadways 
where two-way traffic is necessary. 

2. Put loading and unloading areas 
around dormitories for students and 
enforce a time limit. 

3. Restrict certain roadways for college 
vehicles only. 

4. Eliminate roadways and replace with 
smaller walkways. 

5. Make and enforce stricter rules and 

There are many more problems, solu- 
tions and suggestions that can be discussed 
about the College road system. I just feel 
that it is time that we research, design 
and develop plans to correct the situa- 
tion. The only way this can occur is if 
everyone cooperates with each other. 
You and I know that this will require alot 
of time and money, but until this time 
comes, can everyone try to KEEP OFF

Yesterday was Founder's Day, which 
is the annual event dedicated to the peo- 
ple who had a dream for agriculture, 
science, this school, and its students. Dr. 
Krauskopf and James Work were indi- 
viduals with dreams, ideas, and goals for 
this school and the direction it should 
follow. Dr. Krauskopf and James Work 
inspired others with their dreams and 
these people made them their dreamy 
and their goals. Many people look back 
at this school's past and with the hope 
that we look toward its future. Many stu- 
dents ask. "For what future?" In recent 
years it seems that there has been no 
direction, no goals, and no concern for 
the students who are the mainstay of this 
college. In recent years admissions have 
been down and the school has tried to 
change that by expanding the fields of 
study. Is it right, is it an organized plan of 
expansion, or is it a way of increasing 
population for the present? Is the school 
deviating from the fields in which it was 
founded, or is the school just trying to at- 
tract more students? To many, this 
school's apparent direction is becoming a 
sad reality. There is nothing wrong with a 
plan of expansion of the school's base, 
but is the expansion wise? 

I would prefer to see this school reaf- 
firm its beliefs in science and agriculture. I 
would love to see the school expand 
within the fields of agriculture and 
science by adding veterinary and nursing 
programs. Return funds to the established 
majors, and increase the field training of 
the students. 

If the school wants to get more stu- 
dents to attend, it should set goals for the 
present departments. Make the goals 
good, make them the best. Offer a select 
and detailed program in the sciences and 
in agriculture. When that is accomplished, 
students will want to attend this school 
because it is the best and the students 
want the best. Then, no matter where 
anyone is. a student can say. "I've grad- 
uated from DVC" and everyone will 
know that they came from a school that 
is dedicated to improving farming, horti- 
culture, and the businesses that these 
careers entail. To accomplish all of these 
goals, the school does not have to look 
far. it only has to look at the students that 
are here. They need to look at the stu- 
dents they have begun to ignore. As stu- 
dents we can see where our fields are 
heading. We can understand and sug- 
gest the changes that need to be made. 
We also know where we are lacking and 
how to improve the problems. We only 
need to be asked, and then listened to. 
Our founders took the time to speak to 
the students and to listen to them. Very 
few members of the present administra- 
tion and board of trustees take the time 
to listen. I hope that one day they will, 
because 1 would be crushed to see the 
ideas and goals of Dr. Krauskopf and 
James Work for DVC become a memory.

Music / Nightlife 

by Michael DeRosa 

You missed a great show! The Mantis 
show at Young's Regency in Blue Elell 
was a BLAST. Because of the weather 
the crowd wasn't as large as was ex- 
pected but the people there were psyched. 
Jahil (the opening band) came out and 
played some real good dance tunes in- 
cluding "California Girls." "Rebel Yell," 
and "Modern Love." Then it was time 
for Mantis — The crowd roared as Man- 
tis came out. Mantis played some real 
hard rockin' sets. They played "Born to 
be Wild" and some originals — "In Your 
Eyes," "Forever With You." and "One of 
The Boys" (a song which is going to be 
released as a single real soon). The 
crowd went crazy. The played three en- 
cores, one of which they played a rotten 
joke (but it wasn't funny) on their lead 
guitarist. Ira (E^^Jeball). They told him that 
they were going to play one song and 
they actually were going to play some- 
thing else. Ira started in on a long guitar 
solo for about one minute and the rest of 
the band yelled "Wrong song Eyeball." (1 
guess you had to be there!) The show 
was excellent and the music was even 
better. Some real rock-n-roll was heard 
that night. I will go see Mantis again.

Destiny to Succeed 

by Duke Blessing 

Back in early September, many of the 
so-called hockey "prognosticators" (ex- 
perts) made their predictions for the up- 
coming '84-'85 season. To nobody's sur- 
prise, the Philadelphia Flyers were not 
pegged for first place. In fact, some of 
the absent-minded picked the Flyers to 
finish fifth and out of the playoffs. 

For the second week in a row (V for 
Victory. V for Villanova was the first). 
Philadelphia is watching the rest of the 
country eat crow? 

The amazing season turned completely 
around on the night of February 9. 

The kids (youngest average age of 
any team in professional sports) 
from Phillytown traveled to the nation's 
capital to take on the Washington Capi- 
tals. The Capitals held an 1 1 -point lead 
over the Flyers in the standings and a 
Caps victory probably would have put 
the Flyers out of the picture. 

Captain Davey Poulin scored on a 
backhander with time running out to give 
the Flyers a 5-4 victory and helped to 
raise some eyebrows. 

Then, on March 5th in the Nassau 
Coliseum, the Flyers faced the New York 
Islanders, not the easiest team to try and 
break a three-game losing streak against. 

This game was key because Washing- 
ton still held a four-point advantage over 
the Flyers. 

Once again. Davey Poulin was the 
hero as he scored a goal in overtime to 
lift the Flyers to a 5-4 victory. 

The Flyers then swept Washington in 
back-to-back games and it ^as all but 

MVP Pelle Lindbergh closed out the 
regular season with two "Hall of Fame" 

This was the ye^r that the legendary 
Bobbie Clarke retired. Bill Barber's 
career was halted by a knee injury and 
Darryl Sitler was traded. 

They were grinning in both New York 
and Washington. They were smelling the 
blood of the wounded in Pittsburgh and 
even in New Jersey (yes. I'm serious — 
New Jersey!) . 

Well baby, here it is — Philadelphia 

1 . The best overall record in the league 
at 53-20-7. 

2. A club record for victories. 53. better- 
, ing the mark of 51 set by the 1974-75 

and 1975-76 clubs. 

3. The best home record in the league at 
32-4-4 where they outscored their op- 
ponents by 100 goals (202-102). 

4. The eighth divisional title in the fran- 
chise's 18-year history. 

5. A 25-8-2 record within the division. 

6. 16 wins in their last 17 games! 

7. A goals-against average of 2.99! 
What is absolutely incredible is that the 

Flyers did this with 12 rookies and 
second-year players. 

Even the veterans are only in their 

Rick Tocchet. Peter Zezel. and Derrick 
Smith are all of 19 years old. 

Murray Craven and the Sutter twins 
are 21 years old. 

Captain Dave Poulin is 26 The two 
best goalies in the league. Lindbergh and 
Froese are 25 and 26 respectively. 

All-stars Tim Kerr and Brian Propp are 
each 25 years old. 

The "old" men are Brad Marsh at 27 
and Mark Howe at 29. 

What is frightening as all hell is that 
their are a handful of kids breaking minor 
league records in the Flyers farm system. 

We could be talking about another 
Ryers dynasty! 

No matter what lies ahead, this Flyers 
team will be remembered for the incredi- 
ble strides it made in just one season. 

Everybody out there, please hurry and 
finish the crow you are all eating from the 
Villanova victory. Burp and make more 
room because here comes crow for 
dessert — the Philadelphia Flyers!

A-DAY 1985 

Welcome to A-Day '85 

For 37 years DVC's students have 
been sponsoring the festivities of Agricul- 
tural Day. This year's A-Day promises to 
be the best. 

New student projects such as seminars 
given in the Little Plant Theater, Floral 
Design Shows and BMX racing, will pro- 
vide additional knowledge and entertain- 
ment as well as many old favorites. 
These traditional events include livestock 
showing and judging, flower and plant 
show, and an art and photos show. 
These exhibits are open to participation 
by any students even though their majors 
are not related to the event. 

Besides individuals participating, 
many clubs are actively involved in mak- 
ing this year's A-Day a success. Several 
clubs will be putting on exhibits such as 
the Chemistry Club's glass blowing, the 
Apiary Club's bee display and Floral 
Society's "Christmas in the Chapel." 

Along with the display and exhibits 
there are special events both student and 
visitor participation. There is the always 

exciting tug-of-war match over Lake Ar- 
cher and very sloppy pie eating contest. 
New this year is the BMX racing, which 
will include many local youngsters also. 

To top it all off, one must not miss all 
of the wonderful food available. We'll be 
serving our usual hamburgers, pizza and 
chicken B.B.Q. along with the new roast 
pork sandwiches. Then, one can experi- 
ence the thick, rich, creamy milk shakes 
that A-Day has become famous for. If 
you feel like just nibbling, the Novelties 
Tent has many snack foods including 
cotton candy for the kiddies, peanuts 
and pretzels for the parents. 

One thing we're glad to have back this 
year, is the sale of bedding plants and 
vegetable seedlings for all of the home 
gardeners. This tent will be located in 
front of the gym for your convenience. 

After months of planning and hard 
work, A-Day is finally here. We all hope 
you have an enjoyable time.

It is with great honor and sincerity that 
the Ram Pages staff dedicates this A-Day 
issue to Dr. Mertz. the Dean of Academic 
Affairs. Dr. Mertz has proven, not only to 
the staff of Ram Pages but also to any 
student who confronts him. that DVC is 
an institution that cares and listens. 

Dr. Mertz was born and raised in 
Northern New Jersey where he was very 
active in various agriculture programs. 
During his high school years. Dr. Mertz 
participated in the Vo-Ag program as 
well as Future Farmers of America. He 
served as president of his local FFA 
chapter as well as being a representative 
to New Jersey state FFA. 

At age 14, Dr. Mertz began working in 
a wholesale florist which eventually lead 
to his attending DVC to study Ornamen- 
tal Horticulture. During his Botany class. 
Dr. Mertz did his term paper on evolu- 
tion. This led him to change his major to 
Biology and in 1962, Dr. Mertz gradu- 
ated in the first class of biology majors to 
pass through the halls of DVC. He then 
did his graduate work at the University of 
Illinois with a major in Zoology and a 
minor in Physiology. When his graduate 
work was finished. Dr. Mertz returned to 
DVC to join the Biology Department. 

From 1975 to 1981, Dr. Mertz acted 
as the Department Chairman of the Or- 
namental Horticulture Department. Be- 
ginning in 1981, Dr. Mertz became ac- 
tive in the Dean's Office starting as Assis- 
tant Dean and presently holding his posi- 
tion as Dean of Academic Affairs.

DVC, Dr. Mertz is very active in the sur- 
rounding community. He is president of 
the Honeyhollow Water Shed Associa- 
tion which is an environmental education 
center in Solebury. He is also on the 
board of directors of the Central Bucks 
YMCA as well as being very active in his

fairs entails managing the academic pro- 
gram and the faculty. Dr. Mertz not only 
handles the present academic program 
but is actually involved in planning for 
future curriculum of DVC. He also is

joys teaching the Genetics lectures. 

Dr. Mertz is very concerned with the 
reading skills as well as the amount of

and this is not gcx>d as reading leads to 
the development of the imagination . He 
is a firm believer in developing the ap- 
petite for reading and writing. He be- 
lieves that everyone who graduates from 
college should be literate not only in 
reading and writing skills, but also in

Dr. Miller Chosen 

Distinguished Faculty; 


by ED. Wengryn • 

At this year's Founders' Day. Biology 
Department Chairman. Dr. James Miller 
was chosen as the distinguished faculty 
member of the year. Surprised by his 
selection Dr. Miller said he couldn't 
believe the public awareness of his selec- 
tion: He said many people sent him 
newspaper clippings of the announce- 
ment as well as phone calls of con- 
gratulations. Looking over Dr. Miller's 
qualifications, it is easy to see why he 
was chosen. 

He has been a member of DVC staff 
since the spring of '72. In '80-'81 he was 
chosen chairman of the Biology depart- 
ment. Dr. Miller is also very active in 
school activities besides serving on sev- 
eral school committees. He is the band 
mascot and Biology Club co-advisor Dr. 
Miller enjoys working with students, 
though he teaches mostly upperclassmen 
courses. He enjoys teaching at DVC. As 
he put it, "Students here understand the 
work ethic. They aren't afraid of trying 
and to watch them succeed is what teach- 
ing is all about." 

The selection for distinguished faculty 
member is a process that is new at DVC. 
Started three years ago. the award was 
set up to honor a faculty member who 
continues to improve the education of 
students through innovative teaching 
techniques and for schcK>l service. Other 
faculty members being considered were 
Mr. Roberts. Mr. Markeveys, Mr. Mc- 
Cool and Dr. Prundeanu — all are dedi- 
cated teachers. Congratulations to them 
and to Dr. Miller for helping us get the 
education we need for today's world. 


The annual Founders' Day convoca- 
tion was held Sunday, April 14th in the 
All-Purpose Room. 

The ceremony was very well done. It 
included a speech by the Alumni Asso- 
ciation president William Dunscombe. 
Awards were presented to both students 
and faculty by Dean Tasker and Dean 
Mertz. One of the highlights of the cere- 
mony was Dr. James Miller being award- 
ed the distinguished faculty member. 

The Chorale and Band gave a nice 
touch to the convocation, they per- 
formed very well.

October, a busy month for all of us at 
DVC. Student Government supplied the 
entertainment; such as the movies: Vic- 
tor, Victoria; Splash; and Christir)e. 
Besides these movies we were entertained 
by Caricatures and Coffeehouses by Ted 
Sterenko and the very popular Linda 
Black. Last but not least was the well 
attended Video Halloween Dance with 
this year's contest being won by Brian 
Breneman's bunny rabbit and Tim Ire- 
land's ballerina (tu-tu and all!) . 

Our clubs also supplied us with much 
to do. The Floral Society and Ornamen- 
tal Horticulture Club sponsored three 
guest speakers in October: Bruce Keyser 
(Native Azaleas), Marvin Clymer (Land- 
scaping for Wildlife) , and Dr. K.H. Chris- 
tiansen (Daylilies) . The Newman Club 
had its first in a series of discussion 
groups on "Relationships" moderated by 
Father Joe Cistone. The Drama Club

December /January 

by Linda Goodloe 

Can you think back to the bleak days 
of December and January, it's also when 
the rock group Wham hit *1 on the 
charts with their hit "Wake Me Up Before 
You Go Go" and the class of '86 came in 
first place at the Red Cross Blood Drive 
with 46 pints. Remember when we wished 
each other the best through Santa Lines 
December was the month for Christmas 

caroling as exhibited by the DVC Chorale 
and Band. In January, the college turned 
over a new leaf with major changes in 
school policy in hopes to improve the 
overall campus attitude. The biggest 
change was a new facelift in the Student 
Center Snack Bar, Not only was the 
Snack Bar changed into Caesar's Pub, 
the atmosphere also complimented the 
new look. 


by Rosemary Kluth 

As usual. Dr. Feldstein welcomed all 
new and old students to a hopefully 
good year. One of the first things noticed 
on campus was the new storm windows 
on all the dorms. There were also a lot of 
other changes on campus: the infirmary 
moved to Elson, Eisner's now the Media 
Center and Cooke and Barness got new 
hall paint and lights. 

The first activity of the semester was a 
crazy event called Playfair where the 
freshmen had a chance to get acquainted. 
On September 8th there was a Video- 
Dance in the APR which was also a 

Football, Men's Cross Country, 
Women's Cross Country and Women's 
Volleyball had a terrific month*, = 

Parent's Day on the 22nd was again 
an enjoyable day for both parents and

November was a big month on cam- 
pus. On the first. Caesar's Pub made its 
debut. It was a huge success! For the first 
time, a weeknight dance and entertain- 
ment night was sponsored. Over 400 
students crammed into the Snack Bar for 
a night of laughs, good times and no 
alcohol. It was definitely one of the better 
ideas of Student Government and the 
R. A.'s. The following week brought elec- 
tion day at the end of an unexciting cam- 
paign for the first woman on a major par- 
ty ticket on a bid for the White House. It 

also brought us the Roommate Game. 
DVC's spoof on the "Newly wed Game." 
Congratulations to Neet and Karen. Mid 
the third week everyone got a chance at 
home cooking. Thank God for Thanks- 
giving and a break from Cafeteria food. 
The last week of November brought 
about the ultimate challenge for the DVC 
fall bloodmobile. Naturally, the most ac- 
tive class, that of '^, won (and it's 
because we have big hearts). Anyway, 
that was November, leaving three weeks 
of school (only one and a half weeks of 
classes) till Christmas break.

"The Hooters hit big at DVC 


by ED Wengryn 

March, the month that herolds spring, 
did so this year with an uncanny, "Touch 
of Britain." Four English students joined 
DVC in putting on its Philadelphia Flower 
Show exhibit titled "A Touch of Britain 
— Our Garden Heritage." The students 
shared two weeks in America setting up 
the exhibit one week and touring the 
area the next. (It's a shame they never 
saw South Street on a Saturday night.) 
The exhibit itself was a big plus for DVC, 
being featured on "A.M. Philadelphia," 
the local news and many newspapers in- 

cluding: The Philadelphia Inquirer, New 
York Times, not to mention The htelii- 
qencer. After the students left and the 
show was over, spring break arrived at 
DVC with almost everyone bugging out 
either for Florida, the Bahamas, Califor- 
nia, even Jersey, as long as we all got 
away from here. But, alas, the break was 
short and everyone returned to study 
hard (or hardly study) , to improve those 
mid-semester grades, and to pray that 
April and Easter break would get here

The Future is May 

by Jamie Beck 

When May rolls around, another year 
is ending at DVC. The month is filled 
with worries about the present, plus 
hopes for the future. Watch out, because 
major elections are being held May 1st to 
choose class officers for the 1985-86 
school year. 

The Equestrian Team's Western Riders 
will be traveling to Lexington, Kentucky 
on May 3rd for the National Finals. The 

DVC team will represent Region 5 of the 
American Horse Show Association. Also, 
two members, C.A. Pccoreiii and Michele 
Smith, will be competing individually. 

After we all have sweated or sailed 
through final exams, then the seniors are 
off cruising to Bermuda (lucky them!) fol- 
lowed by graduation on May 19. The 
best of luck to the future of DVC's Class 
of 1985! 


by Duke Blessing 

The short month of February was 
highlighted by the Hooters Dance Con- 
cert on February 8. The concert was well 
attended and enjoyed by all! 

Anne Bailey's Bridal Show was held 
on February 3 and was a success. 

On Thursday, February 7, DVC stu- 
dents and members of the community 
heard a lecture by Dr. Dennis Metrick. 
Dr. Metrick spoke about "Automation — 

its Effect on Human Nature and Its 
Meaning for the Future." 

February 21 was DVC at the Spec- 
trum night with a bus full of students go- 
ing to the Flyers game. Saturday the 
23rd, Bentley's was the place for the 
Sophomore Dinner Dance. 
V The month ended with the Third An- 
nual Career Conference. The confer- 
ence, sponsored by the Placement Of- 
fice, attracted 75 companies to DVC.

"A Touch of Britain** 
Highlights O.H, at DVC 

by Bill Rein 

Ornamental Horticulture blossomed 
throughout the 1984-85 school year at 
DVC. Almost every month included 
cither lectures, meetings, improvements 
or just about anything else ornamental 
horticulture could offer us at the college. 

Nonetheless, the year did open some- 
what sadly with the death of Mrs. Lois 
Burpee. Fordhook Farms' resident, 
owner and inspiration. Wife of the late 
David Burpee (of Burpee's Seeds fame) , 
she was a local humanitarian, a friendly 
woman who's concern and generosity 
extended to her neighbor. DVC. as well 
as to the entire community. Mrs. Burpee 
graciously leased the Burpee green- 
houses to our school for a nominal fee. 

October was Fall Gardening Lecture 
Series Month. The O.H. department co- 
sponsored the colorful slides-illustrated 
programs with the Doylestown Nature 
Club. Open to the public, the series was 
quite successful, due to such interesting 
topics as DVC graduate Bruce Keyser's 
walk through forests of "Native Azaleas." 
local photographer and writer Marvin 
Clymer's naturally enticing "Landscaping 
for Wildlife." and Delaware Valley Day- 
lily Society president Dr. H.K. Chris- 
tiansen's myriad of slides of (what else?) 

This year the college was the place to 
convene ornamentally. On Saturday. 
November 10. the college hosted the 
day-long Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting 
of the Dwarf Conifer Society. Nursery 
owners, propagators and landscapers in 
industry, plus three of our OH. teachers, 
illustrated and spoke of different aspects 

of these dwarfs and how they have been 
and could be utilized in the landscape. 
Then, as fate would have it, it snowed 
for the second year in which the South- 
eastern Chapter of the PA Nurseryman's 
Association met on a day in January at 
DVC. Despite lousy traveling conditions, 
people weathered the storm, joining stu- 
dents in attending the informative meet- 
ing arranged by Dr. Daniel Seik. one of 
our OH. profs. 

Also this year, the college campus was 
getting its first comprehensive labeling of 
all shrubs and trees. Coordinated by 
OH. instructor Mr. Frederick Ray. the 
stamped orange plates are modeled after 
those placed in the Morris Arboretum, 
and will aid students in identification for 
related courses, as well as the public in 
"self service" education. ^;:- ^ 

The result of a year's planning and 
work may have been the culmination of 
OH. this year when "A Touch of Brit- 
ain" came to DVC as the long awaited 
and planned 1985 Philadelphia Flower 
Show exhibit, "Our Garden Heritage,** 
opened in early March. Four students, a 
professor and the principal from Merrist 
Wood Agricultural College in Surrey, 
England, crossed the Atlantic to join us 
in constructing the exhibit. Because of 
the special nature of the co-exhibit, we 
weren't part of the judging this year 
(breaking a thirty year tradition) . but we 
were honored with the Herb Society of 
America Award for the best use of herbs. 
Yet nothing this year was probably as 
rewarding as meeting, working and mak- 
ing friends with our guests from Britain,^ 


Vice President Dr. Arthur Wolf is issuing an open invitation for members of the 
college family to join his "Search for Pride" meeting to be held Wednesday. May 1st. 
at 3:30 p.m. in the Chapel. Everyone is urged to attend with a positive story to share 
about the college.

In an effort to reduce the cost of text- 
books, the Student Store is initiating a 
Buy-Back Sale on Monday & Tuesday, 
May 13 & 14 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. in 
Room *101 of the Student Center. 

Books which are in good used condi- 
tion and which are to be used in DVC 
classes next fall and spring will be pur- 
chased at a prime rate by a Wallace 
Book Company representative. These 
books will remain here on campus for 
resale in the Store. Books DVC no 
longer uses but are still in use by colleges 
throughout the country will be purchased 
directly by Wallace for shipment to their 
central warehouse. 

Before the sale, a list of books and 
number to be purchased for DVC will be 
iposted in Caesar's Pub, the Store and 
the Dining Hall. 

Seniors who are on their cruise are en- 
couraged to leave any texts for the Buy- 
Back with another student. 


The Western Equestrian Team traveled 
to Pcnn State on Saturday, April 13 and 
was High Point College in the horse 
shows sponsored by Penn State. As a 
result, DVC has finished the season as 
High Point College in the Stock Seat 
division of the American Horse Show 
Asscx:iation and will represent Region 5 
in the national finals to be held in Lex- 
ington, Kentucky May 3-6, 1985. 

In addition to the team representing 
the region, two members will compete as 
individuals. C.A. Pecorelli is the High 
Point rider in Class 13 (Beginner walk- 
jog) for the region and Michele Smith is 
Reserve High Point rider in Class 16 
(Advanced walk-jog- lope). 

College Begins Second Phase 
of Campus Scfety Program 

The second phase of DVC's campus 
safety program began today with con- 
struction of a system to transport water 
to the center of campus for firefighting 

The project involves digging a well to 
service the College's 4(X),(XX)-gallon 
water stora^ tank, which was constructed 
two years ago as the first step in the 
overall plan, installing a high-pressure 
pump and laying the necessary pipe to 
carry the water up to a fire hydrant. The 
cost of the project is estimated at 

The third and final step in the updating 
and upgrading of the campus water sys- 
tem calls for the construction of an un- 
derground system to carry water to vari- 
ous spots on campus during an emer- 
gency. That step should be completed 
within three years. 

"This is an important development for 
the College," said Dr. Arthur Wolf. Vice

dependent source of water during an 
emergency situation. It will also make it 
faster and easier to local fire department 
p)ersonneI to connect their equipment to 
our water supply when time is of the 

Previously, fire-fighters were required 
to connect directly with the storage tank 
for a water source, which could be a 
cumbersome and time-consuming pro- 
cess. Under the new system, fire-fighters 
will be able to connect directly with 
hydrants around campus. Additionally, 
water from the stor^e tank will be re- 
placed automatically by water from the 
well, instead of being replaced by a 
separate outside source. 

The storage tank is located near the 
College's Greenhouse Complex. The 
pumping station and well will be con- 
structed adjacent to the tank. Pipes will 
carry the water over a hill next to the 
Krauskopf Library to a hydrant located 
near Segal Hall.

Best of the Winter Sport ^ 
Cities (Again) 

by Duke Blessing 

Out of the eight major cities who field 
both professional basketball and hockey 
teams, take a wild guess which city fin- 
ished with the best combined record?! 

Here are some hints: the Big Apple 
finished some 60 games behind this city, 
the Windy City was off this city's record 
by about 35 games, the Car Capital of 
the U.S. finished 36 games short and the 
Nation's Capital wound up some 24 
games short. The State of Beaches came 
up 46 games behind and the City of 
Smog finished 11 on the short side. The 
closest city was the City of the Tea Party 
which was off the mark by 10 games. 

If you still have no idea, try (the City of 
Brotherly Love, Philadelphia)! 

Here are the final standings in the 
winter sports of 1 984-85 : \.

UPS ALA. 6-1 & 6-4 

by Duke Blessing 

The DVC Baseball team traveled to 
Upsala College needing at least a split to 
have any shot at the playoffs. 

They probably will have to wait until 
next year because the Aggies dropped 
both ends of the doubleheader. 6-1 and 
6-4 in the nightcap. 

Mark Rother lost his first game of the 
season as the Aggies could only muster 
six hits and a run off of Upsala's Doug 

As he has all season, junior second 
baseman John "Guido" Messina con- 
tinued to sting the ball, going two-for- 
three at the plate. 

In the nightcap, the Aggies held a 4-1 
lead going into the bottom of the fourth^, 
Upsala scored one in the fourth inning 
and took the lead scoring four in the sixth 
inning off of Bob McEvoy. 

Messina and catcher Clay Funk each 
contributed two hits to lead the Aggies in 
that department. 

The loss drops the Aggies to 7-3 ovet- 
ait and 4-2 in the conference.

half of the inning. 

Carol Serik braved the arctic-like con- 
ditions to record the victory. ^ 

The Aggies got a 10-0 (ten-run riife) 
victory in the second game behind the 
strong pitching of Carol Gwynne who 
gave up only one hit. 

Softball Team Loses Two 
to FDU'Madison I 

by Duke Blessing 

The Aggies dropped a doubleheader 
to FDU-Madison due in part to good 
FDU pitching. 

The 3-2 and 6-3 losses all but elimi- 
nated the team from the playoffs as they 
saw their conference record drop to 3-3 
(4-4 overall). 

Carol Serik took the loss in the opener 
with T.J. Urban and Lynn Shumack 
knocking in the lone runs. 

In the nightcap. Shumack's homer 
and Michele Heffner's two-run single 
were not enough as the Aggies dropped 
a 6-3 decision. Carol Gwynne took the 
loss for DVC.

In the opening game, the Aggie pitch- 
ing staff was roughed up for 15 runs on 
13 hits. Mike Heisey led the hitting attack 
for DVC with a perfect four-for-four. 
First baseman Rodney Swineford had 
two hits for the Aggies. 

DVC held a 7-6 lead going into the 
bottom of the fifth but Wilkes scored 
seven runs to put it out of reach.

score four times in their last at-bat to take 
a 7-4 victory.

ference throughout the game. 

Aggies Drop First Game 
of the Season 

by Duke Blessing 

A strong and physical East Strouds- 
burg team was a little too much for the 
Aggie Lacrosse Club to handle as they 
defeated the visiting Aggies 8-3. 

Ralph Novi stopped 47 shots while Bill 
Moyer. Craig Cole, Bill Madara and Jeff 
Pehlke performed well against the more

close out the season at home against 
Temple University on Sunday, May 5th

''In Search of 


- DVC Style! 

Some of you may have seen the PBS 
program "In Search of Excellence" based 
on the book of that title by Thomas Peters 
and Robert Waterman. The Peters and 
Waterman book, based upon an in-depth 
study of management practices in such 
stellar American Corporations as IBM, 
Apple, 3M Hewlett-Packard, Proctor 
and Gamble, Delta Airlines, and Mc- 
Donald's, identifies a set of features of 
management style that excellent organi- 
zations seem to have in common. The 
message is, of course, that organizations 
who attempt to adopt those strategics of 
management might benefit accordingly 
in terms of productivity. 

At the March Faculty Meeting it was 
suggested that DVC might profit by 
adopting some of the ideas developed by 
Peters and Waterman. An ad hoc com- 
mittee -^ really more of a discussion 
group than a committee — was formed 
to explore this possibility. That group has 
met three times and has been opened to ^ 
all members of the Faculty, Staff, and 
Administration who may wish to partici- 
pate in it. There has been an effort to 
avoid getting trapped by the usual self- 
imposed restrictions on committees *<^ ' . 
specific objectives and deadlines — and 
to focus instead on an open dialogue that 
will stimulate constructive suggestions 
that will help improve our College. A 
number of good ideas have been brought 
forth from this effort and presented to the 
Administration for further consideration. 

Ideas to improve DVC are also being 
sought via a suggestion box that has 
been placed in the lobby of Lasker Hall. 
In just its first week, the box drew sugges- 
tions from eight members of the Staff : 
and Faculty (and from one student). 
These ideas are summarized on a weekly 
basis, brought before the Administration 
for additional consideration, and also 
"farmed out" to departments that can 
most effectively address them. Several of 
the ideas have already been put into ac- 
tion. For example, Mrs. Maureen Beans, 
our new Assistant Comptroller, sug- 
gested that a video tape of PBS broad- 
cast, "In Search of Excellence," be 
shown on campus at times convenient 
for members of the campus community. 
Mrs. Judy Davidson in the Media Center 
(Eisner Hall) has responded with show- 
ings on Monday, April 29 and Wednes- 
day, May 1. Dr. James Miller has sug- 
gested that the new singing group "The 
Green and Gold." that has spun off of 
the Chorale might bring its harmony and 
highjinks to alumni gatherings and other 
campus affairs. Mrs. JoAnn Roberts. 
Chorale Director, has responded with a 
promise to look for opportunities to use 
the group as "DVC ambassadors" as Dr. 
Miller has suggested. 

Ideas that have no impact, of course 
are ideas wasted. And all of us in the 
campus community need to work harder 
to make good use of good ideas. But 
ideas that are not expressed help 
nobody. If you have some suggestions 
that you believe will help DVC "be all 
that it can be," why not use the sugges- 
tion box in the Lasker Hall lobby? All 
signed suggestions will receive a return 
response. Help us "In Search of Ex- 
cellence" for DVC.

This past year has proven to be a suc- 
cessful one for the Ram Pages. There 
were several changes and additions 
which could be deemed successful. The 
staff was small but mighty and I wish to 
take the time to thank them and also to 
congratulate them. I would also like to 
thank Joe Ferry and Terry Sommerville 
for all of their assistance and support. 


The Agronomy Department has add- 
ed two courses to its curriculum during 
the 1984-85 college year which may be 
applied toward teacher certification in 
Agriculture in the state of Pennsylvania, 
and are available to all students as elec- 
tive courses. 

Agricultural Building Practices and 
Materials (3 credits) was first offered dur- 
ing the fall semester with an enrollment 
of nineteen students (see photos). This 
course stresses construction practices 
and skills, interpreting building plans, 
estimating and selecting materials, tool 
use. carpentry, plumbing, electrical and 
masonry skills and agricultural construc- 
tion projects. 

The second course. Agricultural En- 
gines and Power Applications (4 credits) 
is offered during the spring semester. 
This course includes gasoline and diesel 
hnternal combustion engines, small en- 
gines, use of electrical power in agricul- 
ture, and elctric-arc and oxy-acetylene 
welding processes and skills. 

These two courses, along with Agricul- 
tural Machinery (2 credits) . will fulfill the 
nine credits requirement in this subject 
area toward the Instructional 1 teaching 
certificate. Additional professional agri- 
culture credits required for certification 
are: Plant and Soil Science, 6 credits; 
Animal Science. 6 credits; and Agricul- 
tural Economics and Management, 6 
credits. These 27 credits are a part of the 
total of 41 credits needed in agricultural 
icience courses. In addition. 26 credits 
are required in professional education, 
several courses of which have been avail- 
able on our campus in cooperation with 
The Pennsylvania State University. It is 
therefore possible for those who wish to 
l^tain teaching certification in Agricul- 
ture to acquire approximately 70 percent 
of the course and credit requirements 
while a student at DVC. 


The following article was written 
by a 1984 graduate of DVC. Dennis 
McLaughlin who currently Is resid- 
ing in Sweden.

Last but certainly not least. I would like 
to thank the student body for their sup- 
port. Now is your chance as readers of 
this publication to speak up on how you 
think the Ram Pages has been this past 
year. What did you like the most? the 
least? What would you like to see in the 
student newspaper? Drop any com- 
ments or suggestions in Ram Pages,

I want to congratulate and wish all of 
the new editors the best of luck in the 
following year. I do hope everyone will 
enjoy working for and reading Ram 
Pages next semester as much as 1 have 
this past year.

Reflections of the 
Soviet Union ■ ■ 

; . . ■ ! Moscow 1985 ! 

March 1 -March 7 — Moscow 

It has been almost one year now since 
1 have graduated from DVC. I can re- 
member the first days of school and 
thinking to myself four years was going 
to be quite a long time, needless to say 
the four years went by quite fast. At this 
time I am currently involved with an ex- 
change program and am living in Swe- 
den, learning the language and doing 
volunteer work. 1 have just recently had 
the opportunity to travel to the Soviet 
Union March 1 — March 7, 1985, about 
80 exchangees from Denmark, Sweden. 
Finland and Germany had the opportu- 
nity to visit the city of Moscow. The 
Soviet Union is a place relatively few 
Westerners get to visit and is also one 
that, prejudices aside, most of us know 
little about, so those of us who made the 
trip were excited at the prospect of see- 
ing and learning much about a very dif- 
ferent society. 

We met in Helsinki on March 1st for a 
half day orientation. One young women 
told us of her experiences and feelings 
of living in the Soviet Union for four 
years. Several exchangees gave presen- 
tations of past visits to Moscow as well 
as customs and regulations we would be 
expected to follow. 

That afternoon we left Helsinki for a 
16 hour train ride on a Soviet train for 

DVC Receives Its First 

Ayrshire Constructive 

Breeders' Award 

The Ayrshire herd at DVC has received 
its first Constructive Breeders Award 
(CBA) at the 1985 National Ayrshire As- 
sociation Convention held in Janesville, 
Wisconsin on April 12. Only 25 herds re- 
ceived the award throughout the United 

The College also took fifth high small 
herd (5- 14 cows) honors and sixth high 
regardless of herd size for 4% mature 
equivalent milk in the nation. 

"For the past two years emphasis has 
been placed on increasing the College's 
Ayrshire herd from an average of six-to- 
eight milking cows to at least 10, com- 
pleting one lactation during the previous 
test year," said Dr. James Harner, Su- 
perintendent of the Diary. "The Con- 
structive Breeders Award is one of the 
most prestigious an Ayrshire breeder can 
receive. I think this proves that the diary 
program at DVC is a viable one." 

The College's Ayrshires' winning per- 
formance was based on 10 owner-bred 

Moscow. The border-crossing was our 
first direct contact with the Soviet sys- 
tem. Each of our cabins were searched 
and each of us were asked to show our 
passport, visa and reading material that 
we were carrying. 

Saturday morning we arrived in Mos- 
cow. Our first taste of Soviet society was 
leaving the train station preparing to go 
to our hotel. The many Muscovites with 
their dark clothed coats and big fur hats 
and 80 exchangees with backpacks and 
western clothing. 

During the five days we were in Mos- 
cow we saw most of the sights the city 
has to offer. We had a bus tour of the ci- 
ty, toured the Kremlin, went to art 
museums, visited Lenin's Tomb, went 
to an elementary school. Gum — the 
market place, Red Square, St. Basil's 
Cathedral and Moscow University. 
Other outings at night were to the 
Moscow circus and concerts at the 
Bolshoi Theater. 1 would have to say 
our highlight of the trip was our meeting 
with Soviet youth. We were able to 
have discussions on issues such as USA 
and USSR relations, the peace move- 
ment and religion in the USSR. 

The time spent in Moscow was never 
met with tension or impoliteness. The 
people of Moscow were always warm 
and friendly and went out of their way 
to help us. It was quite obvious to them 
that we were foreigners because of our 
western fashions, manners and of 
course languages set us apart from the 
dark clothed, very proper Soviets. 
However we were all approached many 
times 't)y Soviets who were eager to buy 
our jeans, ski jackets and western 
money, ^ f ^ " , 

Our stay in Moscow was iinet with 
much freedom to go and travel where 
we wanted throughout the city. Travel- 
ing the metro (Soviet subway) and tak- 
ing a taxi through Moscow was quite an 
experience. Everywhere you go there 
are statues, pictures, slogans to the 
communist party and Lenin's picture is 
seen everywhere. 

1 found the Soviet people to be peo- 
ple of many different nationalities— not 
just Russians. In Moscow you can see 
Oriental, Mediterranean and Middle 
Eastern faces, all belonging to Soviet 
citizens. This time spent in Moscow has 
enabled me to separate politics from 
people and to realize that they are not 
really much different than I am. I was 
very glad to have the opportunity to 
travel in Moscow, it is safe to say I 
would not like to live there though. 

This time has given me a chance to 
understand a society that is very much 
closed but as important to tell others of 
my experiences so we may come closer 
to understanding and reduce our mis- 
conceptions of this society. 

cows averaging 16, 282 lb. milk and 636 
lb. butterfat with an average type score of 
83 points. 

The requirements for the Constructive 
Breeders Award are quite stringent. At 
least 50% of the herd must be bred by 
owner with a minimum of 10 animals. 
The herd must have completed a Herd 
Test year's average on owner-bred ani- 
mals, of not less than 110% of the cur- 
rent three-year breed average on a 
mature equivalent basis or 15.147 lb. 
milk and 597 lb. fat. Seventy-five per- 
cent of the owner-bred females in milk 
must have been inspected under the Na- 
tional Association's Uniform Functional 
Type Traits program. Finally, the owner- 
bred cows included in the summary for 
the CBA must have an average type 
score of not less than 78 points. 

"Through our Student Herdsman and 
work study program, students had a sig- 
nificant responsibilty for the daily care 
and management of the cattle through- 
out the year." said Harner. "Also, the 
Senior Techniques course students in- 
tensely managed a group of cows during 
the fall semester."

• I would like to take this opportunity to 
thank my fellow staff members and ad- 
visors for an interesting year at the helm. 

Being an editor of a section of a paper 
gives one a sense of accomplishment, no 
matter how small or large the finished 
product turns out. 

Working on the different projects and 
articles throughout the year wet my ap- 
petite to someday try to do at least some 
writing in my spare time. 

Although I may have irked a few peo- 
ple at different times through the year. 1 
don't really regret anything. My inten- 
tions were good, and besides, the writers 
that get the recognition and move up the 
ladder tend to be those who engage in 
touchy situations. Life is not a bowl of 
cherries and should not be treated that 
way. Controversy is good for the soul, it 
wakes the masses out of their stupor. 
. I want to wish John good luck next 
year in the position and tell him to cori- 
sider the source when being criticized. 

Oh. before I forget. I hope to see all of 
you loyal Philly Fans at the parades next

Aggie Track Team Crushes 
West Chester & Delaware

After losing their first and only meet 
of the season last week to Susquehanna,
